Best Hood Movies

List Criteria: Movies must take place in the urban ghetto

Best hood movies includes some of the greatest hood films set in, and about, the hood. Hood films began appearing in the late '80s and early '90s with the most widely known examples being Boyz n the Hood and the more recent Hustle n Flow. Any hood movies list would be incomplete without a mention of Friday or Next Friday - both classic hood movies. More recently, these types of films have fallen out of favor, as they were falling into cliches, being parodied, and even garnering criticism for promoting stereotypes. That said, '80s and '90s classic hood movies are a testament to top quality film making - even hood movies from 2012 and 2013 are still entertaining to many. Hood films deal with urban African American culture, and frequently with the plight of growing up in that type of environment.
