HypeCast: Straight Outta Compton

        Hello, and welcome back to the HypeCast, a film-centric podcast hosted by Collin Sherwood Elwyn and Tyler Mitchell. Today we discuss Straight Outta Compton, the VH1 Universal Studios biopic on the legendary hip hop provocateurs N.W.A. Before we get to the movie, however, there's a requisite 'clean up on isle 5' when it comes to the great movies we missed and inaccuracies we promoted in last week's podcast (OK, maybe Collin more so than 'we,' but who's counting, right?). We then move on to the movies that Tyler has been fortunate enough to see in the last couple of weeks (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, It Follows, and Enemy), as well as Collin torturing himself by actually watching all eight episodes of True Detective Season 2. I swear we actually talk about Straight Outta Compton, a film whose accomplishments are as immediately evident as its faults. Warning: a few naughty words are contained within. Continue at your own risk. Here We Go!
