A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I have it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, even though I really loved this flick the first time around, to be honest, I wasn't really impressed with this rewatch though. I mean, I still think it is a decent watch but I don't think it it is actually one of Spike Lee's best movies. At least, Denzel Washington gave... read more

Notes:
*This is my 5th Spike Lee joint.
*It has a few of my favorite stars with Denzel Washington, Milla Jovovich, and Rosario Dawson.
*It looks to have quite a few cameos and actual people involved in basketball which is interesting.

Pros:
*Denzel Washington, Milla Jovovich, and Rosario Dawson
*Unique storytelling style
*Interesting soundtrack

"First viewing - Apr. 10th I suspect it'll take me at least a few more years before I catch up on Spike Lee's films that I haven't seen. This puts me one step closer. And it's fine. He Got Game has a solid cast and a decent story that seems fairly well grounded in reality. I'm not much into basketball, or perhaps I might have appreciated it more. But thankfully it's not only about that, and it's got some important things to say. It's absolutely worth a look, I just wasn't in love with it."

"Released for a week from prison in a shady deal in which he has to convince his son to sign with a particular university, the father of a basketball prodigy struggles to reconnect with his teenage children. While basketball is a prominent theme and the movie opens with majestic shots of various kids poetically playing the game, this is less a sports movie and more a study of estranged relationships with Denzel Washington and Ray Allen having close to equal screen time as father and son respectf"

About basketball (22 movies items)

" What's good : U-Conn star and three-point NBA legend Ray Allen, at time with Bucks, later two rings, one with Boston one down in Florida... What's fair : direction and musical score, I'ma fan of Aaron Copland, I'm not a fan of Spike Lee, but the movie has timing and it's romantic, about citations Earl Monroe, Lew Alcindor. I love Rosario Dawson, anytime, anyway. What's heavy : sorry for two time Academy Awards Denzel Washington, his character it's too heavy and out of the lines to me, ok it's "

Cons:

*The lead isn't an actor and it shows

*It can be quite boring at times

*It is a bit silly at times

Verdict:

It is one of the better Spike Lee joints I have seen so far. It's a little jumbled and the fact the main kid isn't really all that great an actor doesn't help much. If you aren't into Spi” read more
