    Ghostdog...

    There were several movies made during the nineties that attempted
    to shed light on the harsh life of inner city life, the ghetto, gangs, poverty...etc.
    Some quite effective...some not...

    Couldn’t help but notice your age...but if you enjoyed this movie, then
    you must see "Menace to Society"...it will make this movie...by far, a pale
    comparison
    of the life that is being depicted in both movies.
    The movie was directed by Albert & Allen Hughes (the Hughes Brothers).
    It features the following actors/actress : Tyrin Turner, Larenz Tate,
    Jada Pinkett, and Samuel L. Jackson.

    Also, if you have not seen "Boyz in the Hood"...this is also a classic
    and they tend to out shine SC. Unlike "South Central" and "Boyz in the Hood"
    there is no "moral" message being shoved down the viewers throat.

    They were all filmed in the following order:

    Boyz in the Hood...1991
    South Central...1992
    Menace to Society...1993

    Be sure to let me know what you think, once you've seen it...I'd still like
    to know if you think SC is the deepest movie... :wink:after you've seen MtS.

    The movie that really moved me was ROSEWOOD. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.

    I have a few to name. 2001 a space Odyssey. This movie dropped a lot of metaphysical "markers". The black Monolith should speak for itself. Another movie was the X-files Movie. ONce again. a black substance threatening "mankind" this time. A substance that was hear from the beggining resurrected to eradicate a relatively new being on the planet. hmmmmmm? who could that be? I wonder

    Oh I can't forget to Mention all of the Star Wars Sagas. Jedis(Djed Eyes) Annikan SKywalker(ANi, the sumerian God of heaven) Annikan destined to free the slaves in the film Phantom Menace, hmmmm. Annikan later becoming Darth Vader(Daath) the invisible sephiroth, just above the Sun called Tiphareth on the tree of life in the Kaballah. Luke being the Son/Sun of Darth. Need I go on?

    If I've understood GhostDog correctly, he is asking for references for movies
    within the same genre of South Central.... :look: :)
