    Spike Lee directed good movies before? I thought he was just the Knicks Mascot!

-Gentrification

-Racial Tension

-Police Brutality

-Dialogue on the plight of inner-city living

 

and of course:


I shouldn't be surprised though, as all of these issues transcend time.

 

Three-way tie for me in regard to best Spike Lee Joint (Mo' Better Blue and Malcolm X).

In the grand scheme of things, I have to go with DTRT. It still addresses issues of today's society and Public Enemy on the sound track

Skool Daze is my **** tho smokin.gif
Jungle Fever always makes me look at interracial dating upside down, like it ain't for me

You not gonna make me choose between He Got Game, Do The Right Thing, and Malcolm X.

She Hate Me, Jungle Fever, School Daze are all really good though.

Can't forget Inside Man either pimp.gif

Nice catch, but intentional on my part.  IMO, Inside Man was a true Spike Lee Joint.  Too polished, budget was too big, A-Listers all over the place.  It didn't have the original grit and rawness that made me feel Spike's work.

 

Still a good flick though.

From Skool Daze, DTRT, Jungle Fever. I wish we still had black movies like this. Malcolm X is probably my favorite movie period.

School Daze holds a special place in my heart as well, being a HBCU alum.  But I just felt the story and characters in my top three were so timeless.
