Pick of the Week:
I was blown away by the 2015 hip hop biopic Straight Outta Compton. The film was incredibly well made and told an interesting story. I am hoping that All Eyez on Me will be in the same vain of Straight Outta Compton rather than Get Rich or Die Tryin’. Rough Night looks like it could be a fun adult comedy with a great cast, but we have seen some of the styles of movies lately that can be quite hit and miss. I will see both of these movies but my Pick of the Week is All Eyez on Me.
