    "I'm not the biggest fan of Spike Lee movies in general but "Do the Right Thing" is definitely one of his best and worth watching overall. It feels a little dated by today's standards but the message it gives is still a great one and worth hearing in any age. I think there are a lot of people out there that could stand to learn something from the message this movie delivers to be perfectly honest. This movie could be considered a modern classic and everyone should do themselves a favor and check this one out."
