    Why call it a snub? It’s a great movie but people talk about it being greatest all time. Is it that crazy that maybe other great movies came out last year

    The movie was good. But Cube’s reaction to the question is the same for me. The movie exceeded everyone’s expectations financially and critically. Take the win.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      you wrong – it didn’t exceed expectaions , and Cube is right , goals for making a movie was achieved , its fans with nothing invested claiming academy’s nod is important

      • Markus

        Wrong -first off expectations is spelled with a t so hit that edit button. And a summer movie about a rap group that made white América nervous being released in August because the studio didn’t believe in it as much as its other movie releases in May through July which if you know the movie industry is when you roll out the films you feel strongest about. Now you know.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        wrong again weezil – you typing about spelling in failed attempt to hide you cant think of nothing to say , secondly coward , they didn’t make white America nervous when white America was their biggest buyers of their music, and your jibbrish about may or july is another failed attempt you a typical white weezil that cant think of nothing to say – and know is I already know about you white coward’s industry of getting away with posting videos of yourselfs molesting millions of babys

      • Markus

        Lmao. This is my fault for trying to be rational with the irrational. So I guess we’re back to square one. On that note,go fck your mother,Gary.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        you typical stupid , nothing to say ,white weezil – there aint no “we” in Nothing

      • Markus

        Oh yes there is a We here,Gary. For some time,while I don’t mind if you do because you’re stupid and don’t know any better,you’ve taken it upon yourself to think you’re an authority on the comments I make. Bitch I don’t need a proofreader. And I didn’t ask for your approval but you feel like it’s going to bother me if you consistently come here tell me I’m wrong and talk about child porn while you embarrass yourself with your spelling. I guess your spell check said fck you and deleted itself. The white thing makes me laugh coming from a fool that’s on record saying Hannah Storm is sexier than Cari Champion? You blind sellout muthafcker! You stay hid behind your keyboard because I will be completely out of character with you if we ever meet and choke you tf out. Anyway what are you doing responding to me? I thought I told you to go fck your mother,Gary!

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        dont read long comment from you weezils , its just your stanky pedofile assisting mothas teachings of you to fail at deflecting to try to hide you cant think of nothing to say

      • Markus

        OK how’s this for short? Go fck your mother,Gary!

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        you are exactly what the white race is

      • RapItUp

    All blockbusters and cult classics are not Oscar-worthy. The Academy tends to favor dramatic, theatric narratives and musicals. Comedies, animations, Black, and sci-fi flicks typically don’t get love. IJS

  • Chyze

    The movie should’ve received the nod for the simple fact that it was easily one of the greatest music biopics of all time. If it was a movie about the culture stealing Rolling Stones it would’ve received the nod. Nothing for the originators tho. SMH

    • Dope

      Nope, it probably wouldn’t get any nominations even if it was about Rolling Stones (disregarding the fact that they are way more important in the modern culture than NWA). It simply isn’t a good enough movie and I’m not sure why would anyone expect it to be Oscar nominated (not that all Oscar nominees are always good either). NWA movie did great at the charts, earned tons of cash, finally pushed NWA into the Hall of Fame and what more do you expect from it? It does not change the universe.


        I put this Movie on the Same Level as “Friday” and ” Boyz in the Hood”. An Instant Classic for Black people.

    • Dan Tebasco

      No it’s not, it tried to pack in too much and didn’t go into depth of anything… We didn’t even get to know who MC Ren as a person was, barely the others either… And they made the most gangsterous dude in the group Eazy the most emotional one… And they made Dre look like a choir-boy because mentioning all the women he beat up would be too real… It got a nomination for best screenplay and it doesn’t even deserve that


        MC Ren was on the Entire Movie, but he couldnt get as Much focus as the more popular Members. Furthermore they clarified that Eazy-E was the Gangster One in the Movie. He sold Dope, packed a assault Rifle, and Talked Shit throughout the Movie. Mentioning Dr. Dre’s domestic violence Issues would have been Irrelevant to the Movie. Straight outta Compton is a classic. But I guess Its “Too Black” to get Nominated for Best Picture.


    #BEST MOVIE OF 2015….N.W.A. baby!……

  • Rapfan

    The movie was entertaining, but it is not worthy of an award. I could see giving Cube’s son a nomination for supporting actor. Will Smith was definitely robbed, he gave a great performance. Nobodies beating DiCaprio though, anyone who’s seen the Revenant know’s that.


      The Revenant should win, but they could’ve at least gave S.O.C. a Nomination. Why isn’t it “worthy” of an Award??? White America has Brainwashed you as well I see.

  • Jmo-Texas

    I like Cube, you see how the his bodyguard tried to not let him give an autograph and he told him “hold up let me sign this for this guy”.


    Don’t look like he is either…#keepitmoving
