I think New Jack City is the one that people like to accuse the most of being a dated time capsule, but I've only ever seen parts of it on TV. I kind of miss movies being lit the way they often were in 1990, with all that smoky Ridley Scott chiaroscuro horsecrap. That's like a LOST ART, man!!! Like not filming movies full of closeups because you watched too many pan n scan VHS tapes as a kid!!!
I haven't watched DTRT in ages either, that one may be more uncomfortable than Higher Learning, where this social outcast kid from Idaho played by Michael Rapaport doesn't make any friends on his multi ethnic campus so he joins a skinhead group and goes on a shooting spree, he blows his brains out after a protracted beatdown scene from Omar Epps. I don't think the movie has any sympathy for him at all that I could tell.
