Default RIP John Singleton

They just pulled him off of life support a little while ago, and he has been declared dead.

RIP

Is Boyz N The Hood in the Library of Congress? If not, it needs to be.

51 is way too young. But his stories were on the big screen and that's pretty damn awesome.

You will be missed.

He lived for a while where I grew up. Some people suggested naming a high school after him, but it was determined he never actually did anything for the community, so they didn't.

RIP. Poetic Justice is still the best chick flick ever.

I would add Boyz N the Hood to my collection.

Poetic Justice is one of those underrated movies. All of them are not exactly good actors, but they were good at playing a character that was very much themselves. So everything came natural IMO.

His worst movie is F&F. I don't really blame him, because he was asked to fit a round peg into a square hole. It was just wrong to take F&F in that direction.
