As I stated above, as a Hollywood movie Straight Outta Compton delivers the essentials of what you would want from a movie of its kind -- it was really cool to see the guys I'd been into so much as a teenager realized on the big screen in such an artful way. Since it's not a full-bodied real-life docudrama there's no point in judging it as such. Though had it been, yes, of course it would be totally fair to call the movie out for its egregious lack of certain events and details, such as the more potent nature of the group's (and the culture's) misogyny and some of the altering of the chronology of events. Yet as merely a Hollywood move, I'd give it an A-.

That's right folks, because you didn't demand it, the Brandon Rucker Writes blog is back, reactivated and better than ever! How's that for hyberbolic re-introductions?
Why the return? It's simple: this is my original public blogging home. There's a legacy of sorts here going back to 2009. And since I tend to have a lot to say these days, rather than clutter my main website RUCKERPEDIA (brandonrucker.com) with all my worldly obsevations, daybook musings, hypes, diatribes and sermons, it's more optimal to do so here in a designated space (plus there's a bigger audience here anyways cuz, y'know, Google rankings).
So essentially it breaks down as fiction stuff over on Ruckerpedia, and nonfiction and journalism here at BRW. Simple.
Welcome back. First new post, which is about the movie Straight Outta Compton, will post in a bit.
Y'all be good to each other.
