Best Hood Movie of the 90s: Menace II Society vs. Boyz N the Hood

Mar 29, 2010 @ 22:54
Damn this is a hard one. I think I'd give it to Boyz N the Hood because it launched so many careers and had so many stars in it. Cuba Gooding Jr., Angela Basset, Laurence Fishbourne, Ice Cube, Nia Long, Regina King and Morris Chestnut all starred in this movie. I can't name anyone from Menace II Society other than Lorenz Tate and what has he done lately?

Yeah I always liked Menace. That quote Caine said was epic.

"I keep myself so lifted I'm accustom to new heights."

I agree with Boyz. I mean, both are hood classics so it's hard. There are so many good ones too.

I've had this discussion so many times irl lmao. But in my opinion Boy N Da Hood is the better film because it's more emotionally investing, it really makes you sympathetic to the situation of the young black man in America and shows you first hand the trials and tribulations one has to go through to rise above that environment, when Ricky dies I swear to god it gets me every single time, like damn Ricky, WHYYYYYY!? But see on the flip side, Menace was like a war-report, it didn't really concern itself with too much grandiose social commentary, it was just straight up niiggas wildin out. Where Dough Boy was a thug with a heart of gold, O-Dogg was just a crazy mothafucka, he really didn't give a fuck about ANYTHING and neither did most of the characters in that movie so it like showed just the nihilism that becomes ingrained in people's minds after several generations in the ghetto.

idk, they're both classics

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

I started watching Blood In Blood Out after hearing about it in this thread but i gave up. That movie is long as fuck! I made it up to when Miklo goes back to jail and quit.
