richardmurray Posted February 5 Report Share Posted February 5 The following is my thoughts to Elliot SMith's ranking of spike lee films interesting that the first movie spike lee didn't appear or use his artistic norms was get on the bus. I have many feelings about the million man march not appropriate for her. Awww crooklyn or school daze got less than chi-raq awwww I oppose that. Mo better blues , da 5 bloods ok clockers is one of his most common appearing films he got game ahhh, is it denzel summer of sam is better than crooklyn aww jungle fever , another provocative movie but is it really better than the one's before? she's gotta have it, his first film, that is always a complex thing Inside man, the criminal caper part was nice, good ensemble Bamboozled is five, no way, that movie I do not care for and it isn't the blackface alone, it is deeper than that, the story is poor for me. I get the message lee wants to convey but i think he covneys it poorly or rudely black klannsman ahhh I never saw 25th hour again, denzel washington or his son is on this list combined 4 times. MAlcolm X Do the right thing ahhh no four little girls in here. ahhh no way this is trash. For me, four little girls is his best film. Most of his films I don't care for how he tells the story. Easy for a writer to say that and one who has never directed a film, but no I think a number of films I would replace and do the right thing, no way IN CONCLUSION Spike Lee makes obvious messages but the problem I have is his framework. I rarely find i care for it. I am one who is always willing to state flaws or critique in a negative tone in prose concerning the black community but in fiction, I dislike Black creators having a majority negative tone, which i find spike lee does in general. And to be blunt, i think he comprehends the black or white viewing market in the usa. most whites in the usa seem to love to see black struggle, black difficulty. and most Blacks in the usa seem to like it as well. Power/Empire are clear examples of my point. link https://ew.com/movies/best-spike-lee-movies-ranked/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
