Movie Assignment LeAndre Roberts Dr. West Bacone College 3/19/14 The movie I chose to watch was, “Do The Right Thing” directed by Spike Lee. There are a lot of things that I loved about this movie. For starters, Spike Lee directed the movie which was an added plus for the whole film. Spike Lee uses the same actors for most of his movies like Adam Sandler does for most of his films.
