:roll: CASPER, it's interesting what you said about Boyz N the Hood. I wondered about that movie because I wasn't sure about which sets they were showing. To me, it seemed like Doughboy and his boys were just a crew. I do however remember the scene where the cops pulled Tre and Ricky over and hassled them. The black cop mentioned Roling 60's and some other sets.

Here in europe ya dont get much american films like " dead homies" , because they arent made with much money, so here only get studio hits like 187 ( the scene of the gang member in new york was dope] and " colors" that 4 me is the dopest film ive ever seen, showin drive-by´s, bloods and crips, hispanic gangs, i think is real as fuck, the part i like most is when the crips are in they crib with all these uzis and shotguns.
i think someone should do a film about the start of the crips.

KIR, lil dawgz !!! ( hey homiez, crips also call themselves doggs ?)

I know BOYZ N THE HOOD isnt bout gangsta, bout it shows gangsta, i think is a real good movie, and the best part is where the lil boyz go to the railways, and play football, and the ball goes to where some homies be chillin hearin the sucker mcs, they dont give the ball back, and then one kicks the lil ice cube, thats where its real, where the homies be chillin.

Keep it real , doggs, !!!! Im from The M

i thought american history X was some "i will get banned" racist propraganda. they address the issue of racism only in terms of how the problem affects white people and thus, even when they set forth to do their work, they fail miserably by showing only one limited view. These films then undercut their own points by reinforcing ethnic notions and placing whites in the role of “savior” and blacks in role of “enabler”.
American History X is no different than its cinematic predecessors in this manner, despite its claims to be “groundbreaking” or “brutally honest”. It shares all the same downfalls and in turn shows itself to be what it is, a film written by a white man, David McKenna (Screenwriter, co-producer) from Southern California’s notoriously racist Orange County somehow rationalizing and coming to terms with his own racism, his own white guilt. The director, Tony Kaye, a commercial maker for the likes of Volvo, Nike and VW was attracted to the film because of the issues it tackled. He then lists it among his issues that he has helped better the world by addressing along side with Abortion rights and Romanian Orphans.Yet, the most alarming and telling part of American History X for me is the way in which it portrays its characters. The white characters are well developed and though misguided, much of their dialogue where they spill forth their racist views spliced with rather palatable or patriotic opinions. This fact is enhanced by the use of the American flag during many of the these scenes, for example, when Danny twirls the American flag toothpick in the principal’s office after writing his book report on Mien Kaumpf, in the black and white scene where Derrick is shown as a teen after his father was killed fighting a fire in a “nigger” neighborhood where the flag blows behind him on his house or at Cameron’s house during the party where American flags decorate the walls and Cameron drinks from an American flag tumbler. What kind of damage is then done when racist messages are put along side of patriotic symbols by characters that are likable? In addition to this question, it must be noted that while the pure hatred is countered later on in the movie, the views that are brought up about blacks being on welfare and taking the jobs away from more qualified white people never are.

This is for CAY: I read that dude who shot Ricky in “Boyz n The Hood” (Jungle-Stones’ Spider according to you) “became a killer after the movie” (John Singleton’s words).

bree, did we even watch the same move. Lol.. I thought it was pretty darn anti-racist with a thread of redemption from racism running thru it. As for OC, have you ever lived there? No offense offense, but there is a lot more diversity these days (with hoods in some cities like Santa Ana) than the Nixon days.

Wait a minute. I can see another side to this if you look at the movie and how it depicts minorities. There is a paradox here. Whites will see the movie as an antiracist movie with a message for redemption from antiracism but minorities will see themselves depicted cruelly. Wow! What a trip.

yes i actually wrote a somewhat longish article about American History X an the ways in which it claim to be revolutionary, but in actuality just reinforces many racist steriotypes.
i grew up in foster care an lived in a total of 17 places all over LA, i am very familiar with most areas no offensive offensive.
i can send u a copy of the essay i wrote on that paper, it is to be one in a series of essays on racism in american from the perspecitive of where i come from.

On FX this fall, there will be a TV movie on the life of Stanley Williams, co-founder of the Crips. Jamie Foxx is going to be playing Williams.

It can't possibly be made any more clear than it already has been. Read back over the other posts on the subject, & you'll find what you're looking for.

I think Bully should be mentioned in this thread. It's not a typical gang movie but it has some gang influence, situations, and is a true story.

Boyz in the hood

Did any of you know that Poetic Justice is the sequal to Boyz in the hood?

Doe boys mom owns the beauty salon...ole girl that hangs with justice is in both the movies...When she got in the fight with joe torre she told him I'm going to get Monsta and Dookie to shoot you...Monsta and Dookie was Doe boys homies in Boyz in the hood. Also dookie has a part with Tupac when tupac talks to him in the street. Therefore Poetic Justice is a hoodsta movie LOL...Kinda


Menace to society

Did anyone notice that in the driveby scene the nigga who retaliated had two different kinds of guns in the scene...When they show Ilena's cousin shootin at Kane he has a tech ....when they go back to the scene he has a regular handgun.

Does anyone know wher Kane and Harold got Jacked and where does the retaliation take place?

Ps has anyone heard that Singleton is in the process of making a Baby Boy sequal.
