There are a few things to think about when considering the best urban movies. The first and most important thing to consider should be whether or not they were “gangsta.” Another thing to consider, is the grit. Were they believable? Do they reflect what is going on in the hood? Do they feature a credible cast? After weeding out films that do not meet this criteria, these three movies should be on everyone’s list for the best hood movies.
These movies include Training Day, Boyz In Da Hood, and Menace II Society. First is Training Day. Does Denzel Jackson know how to act or what? In the film, Denzel plays a corrupt cop who deals drugs. The movie had Denzel doing everything a cop should not be doing. It is infamous for the line,”King Kong Ain’t Got S*** On Me!” Next, is Boyz In Da Hood. Boyz In Da Hood was a pioneer in the genre of Hood films. The movie was shot in parts of California notorious for gangs and crime. Instead of being one-sided, the film showcased those who dream of leaving the hood.
It features people who want to do better in life. Last but not least, is Menace II Society. Menace II society takes viewers down to the trenches. Very few hood movies display the grit and carnage Menace II Society does. Also, very few hood movies feature people actually from the hood. In most cases, it gets no more “hood” than Menace II Society.

Sixteen years ago Doe Deere and her boyfriend Mark were in the process of founding a rock band. When her career in music didn’t pan out, Deere and her boyfriend put their energy towards building the cosmetics line Lime Crime. Today the company is one of the fastest growing cosmetics brands with clients all around the world. When Doe Deere moved from Russia to New York City with her parents as a child, she dreamed about having her own company. She was inspired by the female entrepreneurs she had heard about. Today Doe Deere and Lime Crime are an inspiration to millions of women around the world.
Doe Deere founded the company almost by accident. When she couldn’t find the neon bright make-up she wanted to wear while performing Deere decided to make some herself.

Unlike most traditional cosmetics brands Lime Crime is designed to make a loud creative fashion statement, not cover up perceived flaws in people’s skin. The brand has been embraced by people of all ages looking for a way to cultivate their colorful inner unicorn. Lime Crime with the extremely loud colors of its lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner and nail polish is perfect for doing just that. Plus the products are made from vegan ingredients and never tested on animals, so people can feel good about wearing it. Add the fact it goes on easy, is smudge-proof and lasts all day long and that makes it perfect for work or play.
The intensely colored cosmetics line was founded in 2008 and is now a ‘must have’ for socially conscious people looking to make a loud statement with their make-up. Deere chose the name Lime Crime because lime green is her favorite color. Plus she has been playing with make-up and sparkles and creating her own unique looks ever since she was a pre-teen. These days her bold, vibrant, animal-friendly line of cosmetics have an international following. That has enabled Doe Deere to find success on her own terms
and share her unique make-up with like-minded individuals all over the world.
