Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.
Music artist turned actor turned producer turned filmmaker Ice Cube hasn't always been the happy-go-lucky fella we saw in such family fare as Are We There Yet and its sequel Are We Done Yet. Once upon a time he was a small, but integral part of a revolution that took place in the late 1980's. That revolution had leaders, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and Ice Cube were just a handful of what soon would become a new musical voice known as Gangsta Rap and their name was N.W.A. (I'll let you google what that one stands for). Here is the first trailer for the story of the N.W.A. and if you weren't around during the revolution it looks like this biographical film is gonna do a good job transporting us all back to a time when rappers only had one thing to say to the law...f**k the police! Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
