Based on those two movies I'm surprised I have yet to go on a spike lee kick yet.
Indeed.

I'm gonna try and watch Do the Right Thing, Jungle Fever, 25th Hour, He Got Game, and Inside Man before his new film comes out.

Inside Man is his too? I didn't like that one as much, but man was it a clever and original idea. I think it was more that the movie was slightly frustrating because I didn't see the end coming for once. That should be a good thing though

Manhattan was just flat out amazing. Once again, pretentious arguments about Film/books/etc. for the win. My only complaint was that it was shot in crisp b&w, and I just have a problem with B&W being anything but grainy 9/10

I didn't get to finish Curse of the Jade Scorpion ( ) but, it started slow, and got much better as it went along, a lot of double entendre and such in that one so that's a huge thumbs up. Plus Dan Akroyd . But yeah, I didn't see the end so, that kinda sucks. 7/10 based on what I saw.

overall he's one of the few people that can successfully create and star in their own films. I like the speed that everything progresses in, maybe cause I'm kind of a fast talker as well, and I like how a lot of the humor is based on word play, because that takes a lot of work imo. Maybe he's a little overrated, but I dont' care, he does pretty great work.
Nice. I'm working my way through his work right now, so far I'd rank them like this:

1. Annie Hall *****
2. Hannah and Her Sisters ****1/2
3. Crimes and Misdemeanors ****1/2
4. Love and Death ****1/2
5. The Purple Rose of Cairo ****
6. Stardust Memories ****
7. Manhattan ****
8. Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex... ***1/2
9. Zelig ***1/2
10. Broadway Danny Rose ***1/2
11. Sleeper ***1/2
12. What's Up, Tiger Lily ***
13. Bananas ***
14. Melinda and Melinda **1/2

Black and White, to me, is beautiful in whatever form. He uses it again brilliantly in Stardust Memories and Zelig (grainy, so you'd like it. ).

Prepay - I can't do anything really useful with my phone now.

I mean, if they're going to tell me I don't have enough credit to get a text message via text message, the least they could do is deliver the text message.

It doesn't actually worry me because they're just from a Warriors thing I signed up to, but it's the principle of it!

Melinda and Melinda is his? I own it, but haven't watched it yet, doesn't sound like it's so good but I Love Will Ferrell so I picked it up.

That B&W thing is a really weird pet peeve of mine, that for the most part I usually don't even notice anyways, but I'll check out Zelig (and Stardust Memories, I wanna eventually seem them all )

Here's a text message,
Hey Ian, we just wanted you to know that you're over your credit limit. We are blocking all texts you receive. We will alert you to the arrival of these texts via text message

have a nice day

There's a sweet box set on Amazon with all of his work from '71 to '92 - 19 films for $100. NSW, Laz, and I all bought it and love it.

$100? That's not bad at all. Especially because I could probably ebay it up for less

Yeah, I'll definitely look into getting that.

I love Maxwell's Silver Hammer. But that's probably because it's my best friend and I's song

I don't think I dislike any song off of Abbey Road. "Maxwell" is a fun track, not as fun as "Octopus' Garden," but I've always had a soft spot for Ringo.
