This week on Extra Film, Ryan and Jay begin their Spike Lee Movie Series with Do the Right Thing and then they discuss the 2003 sea epic, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World!
Following last week’s conversation of She’s Gotta Have It, the Extra Film boys move on to one of the most important films of all time, Do the Right Thing. Set in a predominantly black neighborhood, racial tension boil on a hot summer day and lead to tragic repercussions. We talked about this wonderful film before in some bonus content with JD, Brendan, and Ryan a couple of years ago, but there is no way to talk about a Spike Lee Movie Series without this film. And by the end of the review, both Ryan and Jay agree, this is a masterpiece and a film that’s aged very well, even though that might not be a good thing.
In the back half of the episode, the guy’s review Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. With the Main Show’s 2003 retrospective coming up, Ryan and Jay thought they would talk about a film that has been building a solid reputation since its 2003 release. Built as a sea epic, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World is a cat and mouse chase set on large boats in the water with two wonderful performances from Crowe and Bettany. The guys really enjoyed talking about this one.
