To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, there was a time, in the 90’s, when there was some kind of wave of movies dealing with the black ghettos in the US and, from all these movies, this must be the most famous one they made.

Description: John Singleton's portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together 'in the 'hood.' Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other's personality, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face. Ricky is the 'All-American' athlete, looking to win a football scholarship to USC and seeks salvation through sports, while 'Dough' succumbs to the violence, alcohol, and crime surrounding him in his environment, but maintains a strong sense of pride and code of honor. Between these two is their friend Tre, who is lucky to have a father, ... (more)

"24.09. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY John Singleton Every film with Ice Cube sitting on the porch for the majority of the runtime is at least OK in my books. Also, I was actually surprised how much this film made me care about its characters. "

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

" In my opinion, Boyz is by far, the best in the genre of the modern street gangsta genre. Directed by John Singleton (remember when he was considered a director to look out for?) and starring Cuba Gooding Jr. (remember what a good actor he was before anyone showed him da money?), Ice Cube (remember back before he went all Hollywood and was actually hardcore?) and Lawrence Fishburne (before he entered the Matrix wearing shades and a philosophical attitude that didn't make any sense and then came "

In fact, in this genre, I always preferred ‘Menace II Society’ which was even bleaker but there is no doubt that this movie was really good as well. Indeed, it was a realistic and heartbreaking take on the harsh reality of living in one of these neighborhoods, something that didn’t much change during the following 25 years. Back then, John Singleton became, at 24 years old, the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Best Director Academy Award and, even though many thought he ha” read more

Katsotut 2016 (214 movies items)

"Katsottu: 6.3.2016 Netflixistä Oli kyllä loistava elokuva. Näyttely on asiallista, ja hieman surullista loppua kohden ohjaaja on saanut tiiviin tunnelman. "
