THIS MOVIE FRESHI really appreciated Spike Lee's fim He Got Game. It blends inner city troubles with a star basketball player trying to make it. This movie has excellent basketball footage and realistic recruiting footage. It also has a great plot and story and I was extremely impressed with Ray Allens acting. You don't see athletes who can act so real. I recommend you buy this..Score: 5/5

Probably my favorite movie of all timeNice job iTunes. This is an amazing movie. In my opinion, not only is it the greatest basketball movie, but also the greatest father-son movie. Denzel is on point as usual, great directing from Spike Lee (besides the kind of pointless sex scenes, but hey...can't complain) great photography, and great music (score by Aaron Copland and songs by Public Enemy, works perfectly) . Definitely a must see movie, and I'd buy it if I didn't already have it on DVD. It's nice to see iTunes is putting a lot of Spike Lee movies on here, but I'll wait for Malcolm X..Score: 5/5
WonderfulThis movie is a personal favorite of mine. Denzel does a wonderful job and Ray Allen for his first acting job is surprisingly good. You also get to watch Ray Allen, who has the best shot in the NBA shoot jumpshots. It is a must buy..Score: 5/5
