In honor of the release of BlacKkKlansman, let's rank and discuss all of the films of Spike Lee.

1. Do the Right Thing
2. She's Gotta Have It
3. 25th Hour
4. Inside Man
5. He Got Game
6. School Daze
7. Chi-Raq
8. Oldboy
9. Miracle at St. Anna
10. Pass Over

11. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
12. Red Hook Summer

I'm a little embarrassed by my 90s gaps for Spike Lee - almost enough to where I thought about not posting this topic. Oh well; I'll get around to those films from his canon soon enough.

Clearly I need to watch Crooklyn.

Really happy that BlackkKlansman is getting a lot of buzz. Lee's a guy that I would be utterly delighted to see win that silly golden statue.
Suspect is hatless! Repeat, hatless!

If it counts, the Netflix She's Gotta Have It S1 could rank as high as #5. Once I rolled with the hashtags, I really liked it.

That sounds about right.

I'm kind of shocked that 25th Hour ranks highly across the board. I'm not sure why that surprises me since I also love it. Maybe it just seems so accessible for a Lee film and for most directors their more accessible works aren't always among their best. Or maybe it's because the "f*** you" rant seems like something that people thought was cool on college campuses in the mid-00s by kids who popped their collars and listened to Dave Matthews Band.

I've, uh, actually only seen Inside Man and Do the Right Thing. Awkward.
