Whorin'

I have contributed little bitzel and bobbles to this here AV Club inventory of movies set during heat waves. Guess which ones I wrote, and win the scorn of dozens of AV Club commenters!

Summer of Sam was one of the few films I've walked out of just plain angry at it having been such an awful, awful film.

Really? I liked it, despite it being profoundly stupid on several levels.

I'm not sure why- the profound stupidity, the ham-fisted madonna/whore thing, Lee's cameo as the newscaster, the mere presence of John Leguizamo- but the thing pushed my not-liking buttons like crazy.

My impression of Summer of Sam, mean version: is this movie Spike Lee's way of getting back at Quentin Tarantino for creating unrealistic black characters?

My impression of Summer of Sam, generous version: Spike would have made a really, really great adaptation of The Bronx is Burning.

Where's The Day the Earth Caught Fire and Island of the Burning Doomed (original, UK title: Night of the Big Heat)?

Where is the love, I ask you, WHERE IS THE LOVE?!?
