Not dissing his legacy. Or at least that wasn't my intention. I am point out the fact that he hasn't done anything relevant in at least a decade. And to be honest....that has to be factored into his legacy too..

seen the movie, it was a great movie...

i am a fan of both QT and Spike and would rather not speak on race sh*t because thats up to the person viewing the material to form an opinion on.

However spike could have clarified his statement as to why it was disrespectful, but if he didnt see it how could he have formed an opinion on it? Spike is def. jealous of where QT is right now.

All QT has to do is hand in a script and boom...funding, whereas spike has to fund movies himself, or work with minimal budgets. Im sure theres some racism there, but at the end of the day all the execs see is $$. if spike could even sniff 1/4 of the return QT gets off his films, he would have a whole lot less funding issues. Why do you think tyler perry movies are all budgeted between 5-20 million? Hes return avgs between 12-30 mil. Why invest in something that isnt worth it?

Maybe not the overall message I guess but the message of the last 20 mins was retarded. Basically the police unjustly k!lled a black man so the course of action is to fu*k up a white man's business in your own community. Retarded.

No. People act like he does that in every movie which is stupid. There are plenty of racist white people who do talk like that (esp ex-cons). If people really have a problem with him using it in a movie that's set during slavery then they're really too stupid to even bother with (spike).

He's just a really pretentious motherfu*ker who thinks his opinion should count for more than it does. Don't get me wrong though I like quite a few of his films but he's def a douchebag.
whats tha message tho?

what really turned me off to qt was jackie brown.same wit spike i believe.
your missin tha point.its not about use of tha word durin a slave movie.u can hear tha word all day in "roots" and "queen".its about knowin tha history of tha director.if the walchowski bros made django unchained,i doubt anybody would have an issue

why is it that everytime a black man has an opinion on race in hollywood,he's called pretentious?people like spike understands what it is too black in this industry

The businesses they fu*ked up in their community did nothing for the community but provide PIZZA!!!!! Man you missed the whole point of the movie and actually the movie was up to the viewer to decide if it was right or wrong. But it wasn't like "oh the last 20 mins was a lack of horrible directing" it was brilliant. Even white biased critics praised Do The Right Thing.

The last 20 mins of "Do the Right Thing" really happened in Riots. Look at L.A. Riots and that happened after Do The Right Thing but was not influenced by Do The Right Thing. That's how alot of ppl in black communities view establishments that set up shop in our hoods but treat us like sh*t or don't actually provide for the community just set up shop that's it.

That was the whole point of the movie. It was a accurate depiction. And is still relevant to this day.

For the past 20 years I'd say Spike Lee and QT have both changed film making. Both have different styles but their own originality. I wouldn't mind seeing them do a film together. But I can understand Spike having a problem w/ QT.
The fu*k are you talking about? Sal gave Mookie a job for how long when it seemed like he had no other options?

And if that's really how anyone views a situation like that they're fu*king retarded.

The cops k!lled someone so let's get Mookie to destroy his boss' (who's a genuine guy in the neighborhodd) business. Reeeetarded.

Na you're just sensitive and you like Spike are looking for something to cry about, again before you've even seen the fu*king thing That dude is still bi*ching to this day that he didn't get an Oscar for that movie.

Haven't seen it, but if The Wachowski's did it it'd be ok Gotcha.

You're talking about how disrespectful it is without seeing it. Nothing I say can possibly top the bar you've set for stupidity here. I'm sure that's the white man's fault too
