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.

"On the one hand, it's hardly surprising that Spike Lee's era-defining, revolutionary "Do The Right Thing" didn't get more Academy love; since when has anything truly revolutionary really been embraced by an institution that is this invested in the status quo? And let's remember this was 26 years before #OscarsSoWhite became a thing — indeed years before hashtags, twitter or any of the tools of today's outrage culture were even developed, when the discourse was largely controlled by the industr"
