  • spike lee has done so much for Black film but his movies...they leave a lot to be desired

  • Nah, his movies are pretty good, some even more than that. Do The Right Thing is a masterpiece in my opinion, not only because of its importance, but also from a filmmaking perspective.

  • He's had misses

  • Spike lee has classics but also just as many misses too.

  • he has more misses than hits, but i’m not gonna scrutinize a black director unless its tyler perry

  • He's got some stinkers but that's bound to happen in a career as prolific as his

  • Last one was incredible

  • Do The Right Thing, Malcolm X, and 25th Hour leave a lot to be desired OP?

  • Spike Lee joints*

  • dadye

    he has more misses than hits, but i’m not gonna scrutinize a black director unless its tyler perry

    I’d had to go down the list check idk about that sir.

    In any case, even if numerically he has more missed than hits, his hits outweigh the misses by a metric ton.

  • Why are we singling out Spike again?

    His peaks alone garner warranted respect

  • Do The Right thing, Malcolm X, Inside Man and Blakkklansman Out now

  • Skrilla

    I’d had to go down the list check idk about that sir.

    In any case, even if numerically he has more missed than hits, his hits outweigh the misses by a metric ton.

    tbh i don’t want to discredit black filmmakers

    Spike is one of the best American directors in the last 30 yrs black or white..don't get this thread tbh his work is nothing to be ashamed of. He had some stinkers, but so do plenty of other great directors

  • Even something like Jungle Fever is better than a lot of the vanilla s*** getting hyped by film bros

  • DTRT
    Mo Better Blues
    Crooklyn
    Jungle Fever
    25th Hour
    He Got Game
    Inside Man
    Malcom X
    Blackkklansman

    all better than 90% of directors filmographies

    op tryna make it sound like he Tyler Perry or something

  • every director has their misses

  • n**** dropped shes gotta have it and DTRT in a 3 year window

  • If they weren't good you'd have never heard of him.

  • Inside Man >>>

  • I couldn't make it through the new one but he's got some bangers

  • Elric

    I couldn't make it through the new one but he's got some bangers

    What didn’t you like about it?

  • Thomas

    What didn’t you like about it?

    The fact that all the geezers were playing the younger versions of themselves beside young Chadwick was too stupid to comprehend

    Also I was watching The Wire at the time and it was too weird seeing several of the cast acting so different
