  1. I’m looking forward to The BlackKlansman. That said, The only Spike Lee films I’ve liked were Clockers and The Summer of Sam. I wanted to like Do The Right Thing but I didn’t . I thought it was big time overated. The same with Malcom X.

  2. I will admit that even though I think Malcolm X is very good, it did come off as one of his more conventional films despite being throughly engrossing. I am kind of surprised you did not think much of Do the Right Thing because that is one of the few Spike Lee films that anybody can get behind (aside from Malcolm X). Anyway, thanks for dropping by and keep those comments coming 🙂

  3. Unlike Pam, I thought Do The Right Thing was an excellent film, and one of my favourites from the 80s. It would be top of my Spike Lee list.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I totally disagreed with Pam on that one. Do the Right Thing ranks as Spike Lee’s most perfect film. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
