Truth.

In all seriousness though, are people really concerned about seeing this in a theater? Look, I'm as lilly-white as they come, but it didn't cross my mind for even a second that I should avoid the theaters. I mean, I probably won't see this at the theater anyway, but now I kind of want to just to prove that it's no big deal.

I'll pass on this. The ridiculous timeline they are focusing is just too far out there. The attraction for me in these trailers are the cuts they use. I can listen to them at home.

I remember going to see both Menace II Society and Boyz N The Hood on opening night, the 10 pm shows, and there were no problems at all. But that was the good ole 1990s.

I didn't see Menace in theaters, but saw Boyz opening day and the guys who had baseball caps on (Including myself) had to take them off before we went into the theater. Dress code days!

There was a bitch fight at my showing of CB4.

By The way, the first trailer reminds me too much of Ice-T's High Rollers video. Same beats and scenery. Maybe even same stock footage lol

If you're afraid of going to this, get some friends together and dress up as the Baseball Furies. Everyone will leave you alone.

Wouldn't it be a good time for a Red vs Blue screening?

White people are the most dangerous people when it comes to theaters from what the mainstream media shows.

Well, this is getting mostly positive reviews. I am surprised F. Gary Gray was allowed to get a final cut of 2 hours, 37 minutes though. Holy shit, that is a long movie.

157 minutes!!

Now that's some Gangsta shit!!

No extra large Icee's for me.

A movie that long isn't going to get many showings in 1 day unless it's on multiple screens. I'm curious to see how this does. I think I will see this in theaters. It's just a matter of when.

Wondering if theaters in the St. Louis area will have extra security this weekend for the movie, especially considering all the stuff going on in Ferguson once again.

Spoiler:


Dre & Cube on the cover of Rolling Stone. Put spoiler tags around cover because it's too large.

The subtitle underneath "Dr. Dre & Ice Cube" should read "On Some Murderous Shit"

I hope this song is in the movie.

They played it during the LA Riots documentary on VH1.
