    Tales from the Hood 2

    ★★½

    HoopTober5.0 - film #33 BONUS!

    This is disappointing. I wasn't expecting much, but it didn't even meet my low expectations.

But throughout, it maintains an air of such strangeness especially where character choices are…

Often I can respect the film for any number of reasons, but I don't always find it so engrossing or entertaining as to make me want to revisit it. Some of the films that are considered classic, can just be downright boring. This is not one of those films.
