yeah, aren't those the ones with the poor black people who join gangs because there are no opportunities in America for poor people to advance other than sell drugs and kill each other?

Yeah man, those were great films of our time.

It was a good movie.

They are movies that are about urban minorities growing up in the Ghetto in L.A. They were made a few years apart. They try to show the point of view of growing up in and around that environment. The choices that can be made and what those choices can lead to. They are both good. I recomend that everyone check them out if they can or would like to.

I've seen them both, and while they are eye opening.....asking which is better is like asking:

Which do you like better, the Raiders or the Broncos?

On the whole, I prefer Menace II Society. Boyz N the Hood was a tad... saccharine, in a way, but still very good in its own right.

Anyone who looks down on them because they think the movies glorify "ghetto life" is clueless. They were very relevant movies about very relevant struggles that millions of people endured and are still enduring.

It is a tough one. I lean towards Boys in the Hood. It is almost a tie between the Raiders and Broncos. I think that I hate the Raiders less.

They are both strong films, but id have to give the edge to the Hughes Brothers Menace II Society. Its got a much stronger visual style and a little more edge to it. Its too bad Singleton has never really lived up to his early billing. I did enjoy his last film Four Brothers and Shaft, but hes never really made a film near as strong as Boyz in the Hood.

Very good posts. I think that Menace ended on more of a down note making it a little more realistic concerning the subject matter. It was the fact that the point of view comming from the lead role gave it an edge. I did forget about Friday too. Friday was better than Dont be.

I don't know if you're referring to me but I don't believe the movies glorified gang life or violence, I just don't have the patience for 'em and I am tired of still seeing those movies being made about people CHOOSING to not better themselves. Being someone who lost everything 3 times in my life, the first time at the age of 14 - we lost everything including all of our posessions and moved to a 120 sq foot hole in the wall. My mother gave up and my brother gave up, I fu*king ended up getting a freaking job, this in a very poor rural area in Louisiana and even going to college, not because I'm a white guy, but because I tried! I mean all I had left at one point was clothes on my back, no home - nothing. I get tired of hearing about "real struggles" with weak people making poor choices and not getting themselves out of the whole they're in.

I saw the movies, didn't care for them.

Anyway, carry on - I'm sorry for pissing on the thread. Just a little cranky tonight.

Boyz in the Hood is the only one I remember, and I know I've seen both more than once, so I'd go with that one. It isn't about glorifying someone who chooses to live poorly AT ALL. It is completely the opposite, as it glorifies those in the movie who choose to live the better life, even though their circumstances are often used to live a poor life.
