    Happy Friday everyone! This weekend’s theatrical rollout has adopted a definite tenor, one that should have you rolling in the aisles…or groaning into your popcorn, as the case may be.

    The Films Of Spike Lee: A Retrospective

    If this weekend feels special for movie fans, it's not because of the trio of big-name blockbusters hitting theaters, it's because it sees a new dramatic feature -- the first in four years -- from Spike Lee, one of the most talented, idiosyncratic, maddening and controversial American filmmakers of ...

    Review: Spike Lee Reconnects With His Artistic Voice With The Emotionally Devastating 'Red Hook Summer'

    It’s hard to say how long it’s been since Spike Lee was as ambitious, and as focused, as he is on “Red Hook Summer.” Telling a story that evokes “Crooklyn” in its depiction of children coming of age, filtered through two subsequent decades of his professional succ...

    The Playlist Q&A: Spike Lee Talks 'Red Hook Summer,' Hollywood, Michael Jackson & More

    The Republic of Brooklyn and its ongoing chronicles have taken director Spike Lee all over New York's brightest and best borough (its estimated that if Brooklyn was its own city it would be the third largest in the United States).

    Exclusive: Spike Lee Explains What Happened To Mookie & Sal After The End Of 'Do The Right Thing'

    Jason Bourne might be back this weekend, but there's one return that we're a little more excited about: Spike Lee, who has a new movie in theaters for the first time since 2008's "Miracle At St. Anna." And while that picture was a sprawling, World War Two epic, his latest, "Red Hook Summer," is a re...

    Exclusive: Spike Lee Hoping To Make Adaptation Of Musical ‘Porgy & Bess’; Still Hopes To Make ‘Brooklyn Loves MJ’

    A little known fact that even hardcore Spike Lee fans may not know: the “Do The Right Thing” filmmaker has been trying to make a film adaptation of George Gershwin's legendary 1935 American folk opera "Porgy And Bess” for over a decade now. Lee came close in the early augh...

    Watch: Mookie Returns In First Clip From Spike Lee's 'Red Hook Summer'

    Even though he's not a major character in the film, and doesn't really play into the narrative as far as we know, it's probably a good marketing angle to feature Spike Lee's Mookie from "Do The Right Thing" in the first clip from the director's next effort, the indie fl...

    Listen: RZA's "Blowin' In The Wind" For 'Iron Fists' & Judith Hill's "Desperation" From 'Red Hook Summer'

    Despite all the blockbuster movies this summer, it seems we really haven't had a great soundtrack to go with them. "The Avengers" melange of alt-rock fodder was a bit embarrassing, and the great selection of songs from "Take This Waltz" do not have an official release just ye...
