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

By now, I have seen about 2/3 of the movies directed by Spike Lee and even though I used to be a huge fan of his work in the 90’s, it has been a while since he made something that really impressed me (for example, the recent ‘Oldboy’ remake was rather pathetic). Still, I always had a weak spot for Spike Lee's movies, there was a time when he was one of the best American directors and this mo... read more

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.

"Si es una película que utiliza muchos estereotipos, pero le dan un giro diferente al justificar su personalidad y no darles la completa razón. Sus diferentes puntos de vistas y su ambiente cotidiano la hacen parecer un documental. Es una gran película con una hermosa fotografía que emana el calor del verano. Todo reforzado con una buena banda sonora que tiene como tema principal el tema fight to power. "

"Re-watch - Nov. 23rd Do the Right Thing keeps popping up in my head from time to time, so I thought I'd revisit it to see if my opinion has changed any from the last time I watched it. And I've come to a better appreciation of it on this second viewing. Maybe I was in a better headspace, maybe it's because I've changed in the past several years, or maybe it's just that I'm now better acquainted with Spike Lee's filmmaking style, but overall I thought it was really well done for the most part.

" Date: 11/6/2019 Viewed: Criterion Blu-Ray Rewatch Note: 30 years later and this movie is still a masterpiece. It is amazing how this movie feels very relevant and not dated (Except for the clothes and the technology that people use in the movie). It shows that times have not changed that much in the last three decades. I also love all the characters in this movie because they are memorable and have great personalities to them. The overall message of this movie of not using violence to solve "
