For almost 40 years, Spike Lee has made some of the most memorable films to come out of Hollywood. His works are full of black pride, black history, and the overall nature of the black experience. With that being said, it took him 35 years to finally get an Oscar nomination. That one was for the incredible 2018 film, Blackkklansman which featured amazing performances by Adam Driver and John David Washington, son of Denzel, who has every bit of his father’s swagger and gift for performance. In the recent years, directors are flocking towards Netflix, because as we saw with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, and Alfonso Cauron’s Roma, both my picks for best picture in their respective years, the studio lets the artist do their thing with little to no involvement. It’s now Spike’s turn, so how did he do?

Jessica Rothe has stated in many interviews that singing in the 2016 film La La Land was a thrill. Before that film, the actress, who is theater trained, was only known for her acting ability, including the one that put her on the map, 2017’s Happy Death Day. In La La Land, she was one of Emma Stone’ roommates who urged her to join them in a night out on the town, through the song “Somewhere in the Crowd.” This, along with her rising popularity, was enough for producers to get behind the idea of providing her with a starring role in a musical. Enter Valley Girl, a remake of the popular 80’s film that starred a fresh faced Nic Cage. However, in this one, it is a musical that the characters sing popular renditions of famous 80’s tunes. This would be a perfect opportunity for the actress to showcase her talents. Does this one sing like a bird or plummet to the ground?

Contemplative and uncompromising, Spike Lee’s latest movie, Da 5 Bloods, offers a look at four black Vietnam vets and long time friends who return to Vietnam to retrieve both the U.S. gold they hid during a mission and the body of a fellow fallen soldier, Stormin’ Norman. Things get complicated when one of the vets, played by Delroy Lindo, goes his own way and manages to complicate things for the crew. It also doesn’t help that his son, played by Jonathan Majors, has shown up to get a share of the gold.

The last time we saw Mike and Marcus, we had just begun the Iraq War, smartphones were a what if, and history had not yet been made with the election of Obama. You can probably name many other important events, even some from your personal life, but it is wild to think that it has been seventeen years since Bad Boys II. The franchise, which started in 1995, and gave way to a sequel in 2003, has always been a beloved one with the public. How can you not appreciate the stylized violence, the hilarious one-liners, and the chemistry between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence? The question is, is this a legit sequel or a half-hearted opportunity to cash in on a popular property?
