We review indie comedy Fort Tilden, Guy Ritchie’s spy drama The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.
Bored as Hell Podcast - This week's episode
Fort Tilden won the Grand Jury prize at SXSW and there’s a reason for that. It’s hilarious and a great commentary on the whole hipster/bohemian/millenial thing. Two girls living in Brooklyn try to take a trip to the beach at Fort Tilden. And hijinks ensue. Watch the trailer. Available on Video on Demand and in theaters in limited cities. Andy gives it 7/10.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is Guy Ritchie’s take on the 1960’s spy tv show of the same name. He nails the period piece aspect and the stars have amazing chemistry with each other. Andy wishes it was more Guy Ritchie-y, gives it 7.5/10. Adam liked it even more: 9/10.
Straight Outta Compton is awesome, but falls prey to a lot of the same problems of the biopic genre. The “Big 3” playing Dre, Cube, and Easy-E are amazing. Why does he look so much like Ice Cube? Play another type of character, Paul Giamatti! Both Andy and Adam give this 8/10.
Stick around to the end to hear Andy rap. And then some dude named Jiminy Glick interviewed Ice Cube.
