It has been well over a decade since I have seen this movie, in what was my first and will be my only time. One of the most overpraised movies there is, this features absolutely no redeeming characters and a horrible message. I am usually pretty open-minded when my husband and I watch movies, but this would be one that I refuse to watch again! Out of 10 stars: 1

I always loved Spike Lee's movies and this one is definitely his masterpiece. It is a simple story but there are so many layers, I thought it was just fascinating. Like Roger Ebert, I am quite amazed that such important movie was not nominated for the Best picture academy award. Anyway, I think it is a great classic and it is definitely worth a look.

It's the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, and tensions are growing there, with the only local businesses being a Korean grocery and Sal's Pizzeria. Mookie, Sal's delivery boy, manages to always be at the center of the action.

I haven't had the thrill of seeing it -- but I HEARD parts of it once, blaring from a TV that I lazily hadn't turned off, and... that was enough for me.

25 From 89: My Favorite Films of 1989 (25 movies items)

" "Let me tell you the story of "Right Hand, Left Hand." It's a tale of good and evil. Hate : it was with this hand that Cane iced his brother. Love: These five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man. The right hand: the hand of love. The story of life is this : static. One hand is always fighting the other hand; and the left hand is kicking much ass - I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love, is finished. But, hold on, stop the presses, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the lef"

Ricky's Movie Log: August 2015 (8 movies items)

"August 28th Watched on DVD First Time Viewing Holy shit! This was a good movie. During the summer, I took a job working on a short film. The short film I was working on dealt with the issues of police brutality and institutionalized racism. In preparation, our team watched the opening scene of Do The Right Thing and eventually got use the instrumental of “Fight The Power” in the film. After production was done, I wanted to see the whole film for myself. I got the DVD and checked out the fil"
