Dang, they gave Spike Lee the injunction. I love Spike Lee- Do the Right Thing was great, for example, but there are a lot of other things, places and people named Spike out there. He's ruining his good name with such foolery, especially after resting on his laurels so long- although I submit that I haven't seen the 25th Hour.That sucks, because many other black films just plain suck.

I know they are going for the mass audience, which likes feel good tales about attractive people and their easily resolved problems, but I'd like more meat to my stories, and I don't mean sappy Oprah flicks like Antoine Fischer. Just because it's not all sugar and pie doesn't mean we have to get bogged down in bathos.
