How do you think Spike Lee's "School Daze" emphasizes Stereotypes on African Americans?
I think it must be mentioned that it's not done in a disrespectful manner...it's more satire than buffoonery.
the whole dance sequence with the Wannabees and the Jiggaboos (which is my fave part in the whole thing btw) can be seen as emphasizing stereotypes.
Love Spike Lee's directing style. Dark. Gritty grimey movies but are so well done. My favorite movie of his is He Got Game and Clockers
Bq- both very high im really interested to see what he's going to do with old boy. It don't seem to fit his style. Either was inside man but that was real good too.
Bq2- top 15 i assume.
If you could have lunch with one person in the world, who would it be? Is Spike Lee a good answer?
If you can explain a good legitatimate reason that colleges won't have a problem witha dn will actually admire you for then yeah it is. But if not, find someone else. It would be better if they were someone who was like a role model to you or inspiration or something
What do you think about the Spike Lee documentary on Hurricane Katrina?
It seemed to show all sides of the story. So it was ok. I just don't like how they turned it from a poor people thing into a racist thing. There were poor white people involved too, and a lot of them, but they were stuck in St. Bernard parish, and the news media didn't bother showing them at all. Because seeing black people like that was more sensational.
I found a picture of him with your description and it's kinda hard to tell what glasses he wears. It looks kind round, so here are some very similar glasses:
I think it's the first one, the Harry Potter-ish glasses. They offer prescription in them if you need it,it not just order as frames only. Have fun!
Anybody have any information on Spike Lee's documentaries of Kobe and MJ?
The Kobe one will be lame. It's a made for tv program not even a real film.
The Jordan doc looks interesting though, I wonder how Spike Lee will approach that.
The movie, "More than a Game" about the St. Vincent, St. Mary's run to a championship with LeBron James and his four best friends looks insanely great.
People are saying it's the best basketball movie ever.
Here are some reviews:
Why does Spike Lee only wear a Landry Fields jersey?
I know. I've seen him with a Landry Fields jersey every single game at least this season. Well, I'm pretty sure he said Landry Fields was a great player and a rising star and everything. Hope the knicks don't trade Landry cuz he has a bright future. If they do, Spike will have to sell that jersey...
Believe it or not leaving the new spike lee film sat. I saw a teenage couple having sex in the?
This is a very hard question! As a "responsible citizen" you can respond by telling the manager or (if you're brave) walking up to them yourself and asking them to take it to a private place. As a more awkward person, I probably would have hooted and yelled "Get a room! That's GRRRRoss!". I don't pretend to be proud of myself! :)
Do you think movie director Spike Lee seems angry and arrogant?
I think his movies are funny.
Personally, I'd be angry if anyone, Clint Eastwood included, was talking down at me too if I was creating something and doing my best. Not that Eastwood isn't a fantastic director and actor, but don't you think it's petty and arrogant of someone of Clint Eastwood's status to be talking down to another director to begin with?
As for the paparazzi - I'm pulling for anyone who wants to take them on. I always enjoy it when a movie star or singer or something just loses it and punches one of those idiots.
movies: how do you feel about Spike Lee as a director?
Honestly, I'm not a huge fan, but I do like some of his films. He is a talented director, no question.
BQ2: Denzel Washington
EDIT: Just realized I misread the second BQ. My bad, lol. Pulp Fiction, Training Day and Shawshank.
First of all, congratulations that is amazing!
Hmm, maybe something to do with Do the Right Thing/ "Fight the Power" and the election of Barack Obama? Like
"Now that America's first African-American president is in office, do you see the discourse surrounding equality, particularly for African-Americans, heading in a new direction?"
"If you remade Do the Right Thing today, what, if anything would be changed? Would "Fight the Power" still be used in the same way?
Somewhere, Spike Lee and David Stern are celebrating?
Now the Cavs-Celtics series is over, David Stern should be celebrating with his son and lover at the same time all night long.
why don't americans watch miracle of st ann of spike lee?and some other movie of woody allen?
Your first example was poorly advertised and lightly promoted. Most Spike Lee movies are promoted six ways to Sunday; this one wasn't.
Americans do not like Woody Allen--he's regarded in the US as a child molester who cheated on his partner, Mia Farrow, and poked her adopted teen daughter.
He's viewed as a disgusting, reprehensible reprobate and pervert. As he should be.
I would like to contact spike Lee is this possible?
vietnam vet - Check out the websites below for contact information for Spike Lee:
What do you think about Spike Lee telling Obama to get angry Obama says I going to kick ass.?
Are you sure it was Spike Lee who said this?
Because if it were, then he's on the outside looking in. There's no way anybody can know what's going on behind the scenes with President Obama and this oil leak.
And btw, there's nothing moronic about Spike Lee.
Do you think Obama was offended when Spike Lee admitted Obama can't walk on water like most thought he could?
You're misinterpreting what Spike Lee was saying. Some people had placed incredibly high expectations on President Obama, especially considering the disastrous mess that he met when he entered office. Most of that hyperbole was generated by the right wing, with its constant, sarcastic repetition of the "Messiah" reference.
Spike Lee said, "He's not walking on water, but they're trying to nail him to the cross." He is correct in that reference and assessment.
most of the time Spike Lee movies are a hit or miss with me, but he creates some very unique, and truly interesting characters and puts them in situations that i also find interesting, like one of his really good ones was The 25th Hour
Can someone tell me the relation between Spike Lee and Michael Jordan?
Spike Lee was one of the original dumb Jordan Jockers. His commercials (as Mars Blackman) were from back in the 80's, and were one of the earliest promoting Nike and getting the Jordan hype machine in full gear.
He is just one of the people responsible for Jordan becoming the most overrated athlete ever.
Hope this helps
He is given credit for making a difference in the world of professional basketball in 1994 when he was talking trash to Reggie Miller and Reggie stepped up his game and hit for 25 pts in the last quarter...
Spike Lee is well-known for his devotion to the New York Knicks professional basketball team. Much of the blame for the Knicks' loss 93-86 to the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals, in which "Knick-killer" Reggie Miller scored 25 points in the 4th quarter, was given to Lee. Lee was apparently taunting Miller throughout the 4th quarter, and Miller responded by making shot after shot. Miller also gave the choke sign to Lee. The headline of the New York Daily News the next day sarcastically said, "Thanks A Lot Spike".
