Best Ghetto/Hood/Gangster Movies.

The reason I am asking this question is because last night I saw Menace 2 Society . It was a wicked movie, it felt so real. The dialogue was also well written. The ending of the movie is real sad as well. Anyways, I liked this movie soo much, and I was wondering if there are anyothers that can be compared to it, I have heard Boyz in tha Hood is good. Any feedback would help. THX.

Boyz n the Hood - One of my favorite movies.

I never liked Training Day. I thought it was overrated and the Oscar for best actor that year should have gone to Russel Crowe. Washington won cause he's black.

Paid in Full was a great, great movie. I believe it's a rockafella movie production, based on gangsterism' in the 80's.

Half Nelson. It's not really a 'hood/gangster' movie like the other's mentioned, but it sort of is, if that makes any sense.

It's more of an inner-city thing than anything else.

It's not a "gangster" type movie you are looking for but it's pretty ghetto

Washington won it on credit for past performances...it happens all the time with the Oscars.

Very good movie.

Just to add some variety to the thread, people might want to check out Sucker Free City...it's a Spike Lee flick.
