August 2015 Dramas


Straight Outta Compton looks really good and I love that Ice Cube’s son is playing him in the movie. Digging for Fire has a slacker kind of quality, but one that I want to watch. The Diary of a Teenage Girl seems fairly disturbing, but Kristen Wiig makes me want to watch it. The rest of them don’t seem interesting enough.
