11. Do the Right Thing (1989)

Leonard Maltin's Rating :
Should be :

IMDB Rating : 7.9

Rotten Tomatoes Rating : 98%

One of the best movies of the 1980's and maybe, of all time, and it only gets 3 stars from Leonard?

It is a controversial movie, but the filmmaker, Spike Lee, should be rewarded, not penalized for making it. An exciting, beautifully filmed movie. The three star rating is an insult to this great film.

Leonard says in his review : "Entertaining and provocative, with a much-discussed (and troubling) finale."

Troubling, much discussed - these are good things when we are talking about movies - right? Maybe we should only allow happy and forgettable movies to be made.
