  • De La Ghetto's rating of the film Jamesy Boy

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. There has never been a movie, written by a white guy, that has gotten the hood right. Ever. Please prove me wrong on that. I want to see it. I wanted to like this movie. Hell I even did, if only a little, if only because I had fun reading my own experiences into it, and other stuff which it tried but failed to supply itself.
