The Best Ghetto Movies

List Criteria: Movies should take place in the urban ghetto.

A list of the best ghetto movies, including black ghetto movies, hood movies and ghetto comedies. This list includes the top ghetto films, but if you believe we missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Ghetto films began appearing in the late 80's and early 90's with one of the most widely known examples being "Menace II Society." More recently though, they have fallen out of favor, as the films were beginning to foster cliches, being parodied, and even garnering criticism for promoting stereotypes. That said, the early ghetto films were classics and are a testament to top quality film making.

What are the best ghetto movies? What are some example of hood films? Ghetto films deal with the urban culture of minorities, and frequently with the plight of growing up in that type of environment. Use this ghetto movie list as a starting off point to vote on what you think are the best films in the genre and to find new movies that you'd enjoy watching.
