    Very uneven, but when he's on, there's nothing quite like a good Spike Lee joint. Don't understand the good reviews for Chi-raq though, that has to be one of the most annoying movies I've ever seen.

    clockers i have a weird reaction to. its not good, yet i want a sequel! imagine that

    summer of sam deserves a higher score. its intentionally...grating...to mirror that summer.

    25th hour is amazing.

    she hate me is underrated.

    inside man deserves a smidge more respect.

    oldboy deserves more disrespect.

    da 5 bloods deserves more love. should've been oscar noms all over that thing

    Pretty disappointing for someone who's supposed to be one of the greatest ever. It's one thing to have a preferred style and themes, but this guy basically made the same movie over and over again. They all sort of blend together, apart maybe from the ones with Setsuko Hara that stand out a bit more. This meme sums my feelings up:
