“DO THE RIGHT THING” FINALLY MAKES IT ONTO THE AFI TOP 100

“DO THE RIGHT THING” FINALLY MAKES IT ONTO THE AFI TOP 100

Finally. How this film didn’t make it to the original list from 1998 is beyond comprehension. Especially since Dances with Wolves was on the list.

Sadly, The Sixth Sense also made the cut while Giant and Fargo got ousted.

    I just watched 6th Sense again last weekend…still a GREAT fucking movie.

    “Do the Right Thing” is awesome, but this smacks of “oopsy, not enough black filmmakers last time! Lets remove D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation,” replace it with the much more p.c. “Intolerance” and throw Spike Lee a bone.”

    Whatever works.

    Sixth Sense is an excellent movie, but not the greatest movie of all time.

    And that new list sucks. Way to show your irrelevance AFI.

    Sadly I agree Don. They only put it in there to up the black population but I still think it deserves it.

    And I love Sixth Sense… I just have a hard time understanding why it’s better than Giant.

    I tend to agree Don. That’s funny, and also further proof of AFI’s eagerness to gain ratings from these stupid lists.

    And “Fargo” getting the boot? It’s probably one of the best movies ever made, for fuck sake. Take out Fellowship of the Rings and put Fargo back in.

    And “Do the Right Thing” is also responsible for one of the great parodies on “The Critic,” during the New York in love episode where Mookie yells out to Sal, “Yo Sal, I got something for you man,” and throws the trashcan through the window. Sal comes out and says, “Aw, Mookie, you found my trashcan,” and they hug.

    “Six Sense” is good, but “Fargo” is one of a kind. What a bunch of crap. :(

    Sixth Sense is a M. Night Shyamalan anomaly. Why the hell does it make the list?
