Wildstyle is pretty cool, a piece of legend. I also liked Poetic Justice, but my favorite back in the days was Boyz In The Hood.

I figured you'd pick Godzilla movies, since M.I.C. used them as the background for their gimmick.

Music and movies are two completely different animals. I'm not gonna watch Da Hip Hop Witch just cause Eminem is in it.

Movie reviews are overrated. I could do most of those guys' jobs better than they can. A lot of the time they'll give a movie a bad review and it'll be dope and vice versa.

As for my Top 10 (in no order except #1)

Boyz In The Hood
Friday
Do The Right Thing
Wild Style
Krush Groove
8 Mile
House Party
Menace II Society
Breakin 1-2
Beat Street

I agree that they are overrated, but it wasn't just professional reviews. It was also feedback i got from friends and shit who had seen it.

Some of these picks are funny to me. I mean, is any movie with primarily a black cast, set in a city, considered to be inspired by hip-hop? That's the exact attitude that prevents Hollywood from viewing black actors as interchangeable with white actors.

Yes and NO. Hip Hop was and is a primarily a black music form and it orignated in the inner cities. Sooooooooooo............are you crazy?

He is not crazy, he is correct, the majority of these movies even if they just have a hip hop soundtrack aren't. Is Wynonie Harris hip hop because he was black? I know you get what he means K. Rob...the movies in question have to be centered around the elements.

I can see the case being made for Higher Learning falling in the "not inspired by hip-hop" category. But, on the flip side, I can also see how people consider it to be...John Singleton.

Ah, it did say inspired. While all the movies mentioned may not be inspired by hip-hop, they certainly are influenced by it in one way or another. Maybe K.Rob just used the wrong word?

I know I did my list using movies in which hip-hop was a big influence, not necessarily the focal point.

See this is what I mean by sucking the fun out of simple shit. The inner city and things of that nature inspired hip hop and vice versa.
