    Caine: I want your motherfukkin' Daytons and your motherfukkin' stereo. And I'll take a double burger with cheese.
    Car-jack Victim: What?
    Caine: Motherfukker, order my motherfukkin' food!
    Voice of fast food employee: Hi, may I take your order, please?
    Car-jack Victim: Yeah, uh, let me have a double burger, uh, some fries...
    Caine: Motherfukker, I said with cheese, nikka!
    Car-jack Victim: shyt! (Speaking into microphone) Yo, uh, make that a double burger with cheese.
    Caine: See, y'all would've made me shoot your stupid ass over nothing.
    Car-jack Victim: Hey, come on, man, we supposed to be brothers.
    Caine: Oh what, you trying to get smart?

    i remember John Singleton said that they was supposed to be a dialogue between Doughboy and Furious before the Ferris situation. Homie shouldve use that scene

    Easy decision for me, Menace...

    Mainly because it has stood the test of time a lot better than Boyz in the Hood. Like others have stated Boyz in the Hood comes across kind of cheesy, and most of that can be attributed to Cuba Gooding Jr.

    so I guess we can all agree Cuba goodings corny self turned that movie into one big corny PSA. Not to mention looking at the pic posted earlier in this thread he looks like the younger sibling of :flabbynsick:

    Boyz is good but Menace is the GOAT
    The graduation party where they introduce his boy stacy. You can see exactly what he's saying cause they zoom in on his face and he's talking to girls around a table
    Stacy: "Im gonna fukk you, you, aaaaand you. wit yo fine ass" :steviej: next time that scene comes on say the words out loud and watch everyone in the room crack up :russ:

    Menace = More realistic, people can relate to it more.


    Boyz = better film from a technical point of view tells the story better



    its a push to me, sometimes you gotta be 'Caine and sometimes you gotta be Tre'

    Menace was organic, and entertaining movie. Mad classic lines, and scenes. Ice cube, and Lawrence Fishburn carrie Boyz in da hood. Cuba was a cornball in it then, and as the years passed, his corniness is on a hunnid.

    Cats is recreating Menace on GTA V lol. Dudes got too much time on they hands lol...funny none the less.

    ***snorts 8483seconds***

    Both were realistic and people could relate to both

    Menace= Caine knew better, had 6 people that tried to get him to grow up, his grandparents, stacey, sharif, ronnie and mr butler, he chose to do his own shyt, and when he decided to change he had already got caught up in a robbery and stomped the wrong nikka. He was basically a stereotype.

    Boyz= Trey, both parents were hardworking, them being seperated didnt stop them from raisin him right, he got away with a lil more stuff with Furious, but at the sametime Furious, put a lil bit of knowledge in him early, the whole africa/crenshaw mafia argument, Trey homeboys Lil Chris,Dough and Ricky knew Furious didnt play that shyt, and later Dookie and Monster knew as well, they never pressured him to do shyt, Trey in a way when he took Rick to visit his pops, knew his dad was finna give em a speech or school em, because every convo Trey and Furious had in the movie made him think about consequences , even the messages Brandi mom was sendin over the phone was a low key lesson, because Trey was like "wait, if my daddy marries your mom, we will have to do the incest thang", lesson was learned will quick.

    The Rick and Dough sibling beef is shyt that still goes on today, the mom was the cause of it, remember when Trey went to their house for the first time, she was cussin Dough out, tellin him how he wasnt about,amount or be shyt, Ricky comes out Trey ask em why he carrys the football, Ricky says thats what he's gonna do, and she responded proudly thats right, then slightly mean mugged Dough. Dough stood up for his brother more than once, had the football never returned Dough would've been the blame, so he made sure he got it back and when Ferris ran into Rick, Dough handled it. Rick started the fight with Dough over the cornmeal, she comes out slap Dough, she also blamed him for gettin shot.

    I know people who are like and were like everybody in both movies, from Pernell in Menace to rick and dough's mom

    this....both great films but Menace got quotables for days.

    Caine: Then why your tropical ass sittin' on the goddamn cooler?

    Sharif: To keep you fools from drinking this poison. That's why.

    Caine: Man, you better get your salaikum salaam ass up off this box and pass me a motherfukkin' brew.


    and MANY, MANY more.
