Look I know this isn't exactly politics but the movie forum is a ghost town so I wanted to address it here. Spike Lee's racism and hypocrisy has reached HILARIOUS levels! Here's a guy who's movies are dripping New York stereotypes and prejudice (especially about Italian-Americans, whom he seems to despise). And he has the audacity to whine about Tarantino's "Django Unchained"? He pulled this same BS with Eastwood's 'Letters from Iwo Jima'.

Don't get me wrong, I love Spike's films. Pretty much all of them. But it stops there. As a person, he's a bona fide piece of sh!!.

STFU SPIKE!

Haven't seen it,.....so can't judge.

But, if Spike has a problem with a Tarantino movie,....I'll take that as a 'thumbs up' on the Ebert and Siskel scale.

Anyone who's seen Inglorious Basterds has got to know Tarantino doesnt let actual history get in the way of a story.

Spike has a point to be made that this wasn't really Tarantino's story to tell, but none of Tarantino's movies come with a claim of accuracy, so that mitigates it somewhat.

Mickey Ryan says:
Basterds was, IMO, Tarantino's weakest film. Reservoir and Pulp are still his best - with JACKIE BROWN being his most underrated.

It's a spaghetti western spin-off of the old blaxploitation pieces of the 70s, some of them even had the N word right in the title.

It was alright. After I got over them having Hitler die in a cinema fire in France, I thought it was actually kind of cool to just completely reimagine history in such an obvious blatant and unapologetic way.

Is that a good thing...dunno. Have you ever seen Four Rooms. Granted, it was four directors but that has to be worst ever.

I like them all and I liked Inglorious Basterds. My grandpa is a WWII nut and he could hardly watch. I kept telling him it's how Tarantino would have liked it to happen. But all he could do was yell at the screen, "oh bullsheet!"

Spike made about 3 good movies the rest suck.

Yes I did and couldn't agree more ~ Four Rooms was a disaster from start to finish.

And Tarantino has a point--there is no way he used the word more than it was used historically.

Jackie Brown is his most underrated IMO. I freaking love that movie.

I am actually underexposed when it comes to exploitation flicks. I was born a bit on the late side and the theatre in my small town was so conservative that they had one showing of Malcolm X at 10:00 PM and checked ids.

The best thing I have to say about Spike Lee is, why is he named after that channel Spike TV?

I was way too young when X came out but I saw it years later and loved it even though its mildly inaccurate.

The one time I thought Quentin Tarantino might be racist was that scene in Pulp Fiction where Jules and Vincent bring the body of that kid they accidentally killed to his character.
When he asks if he looks like "storing dead n-words" is his thing I thought it was funny. Then I realized that not only did he write that scene, he chose to give those lines to his character. And he wasn't using it in the way rappers use it, he was just calling the kid an n-word. Right in front of another black guy.

But then I got over it and just enjoyed the movie.
