25th Hour is easily the worst film I’ve ever seen.

I envy how you’ve never seen a bad film, TBH

Spike gets a 5 from me. Even if I’d never seen a film of his he’d get that for giving Tarantino shit.

what in the fuck

Very up and down, but the highs are as good as any film that has been released in the past 30 years.

and 4 little girls. is good at documentaries.

Watched Blackkklansman few weeks ago, thought it was brilliant. That’s the only one of his I’ve seen though, looks like I should check out Do The Right Thing.

I think you’d love Inside Man as well - try and avoid spoilers for that one though.

One that I actively need to address my blank spots with but I like what I’ve seen.

Yeah same. Think I’ve only seen Inside Man, BlacKkKlansman & Da 5 Bloods. Liked them all and aware they’re not even close to top tier Spike

Do the Right Thing is the best film I’ve seen in the last 5 years, untouchable masterpiece that treats every character with total empathy in a way I’ve barely ever seen before

Yeah, I’ve just seen those two, She’s Gotta Have It, and Da 5 Bloods

Liked em all (though D5B could do w a much tighter edit tbqh)

And as has been said DtRT is incredible and a masterpiece

Worked my way through a few of his others in lockdown (and totally loved Da 5 Bloods fuck you), really excited to get to Malcolm X finally and Crooklyn looks like it should be real good

Also you missed Clockers off the list, would have been my third pick
