Yes, because that's what I said.
I said it was stupid to have preferences.
I said I watch things closely and try and understand them, before I dismiss them with comments like "it isn't realistic."
Watching a movie expressing ideals and philosophies and then saying you dislike it because it wasn't realistic enough.

I know I brought up rewatching it, because I don't revel in ignorance and I'd be willing to give it another chance - but it isn't on my list of priorities.
But you were trying to be a smart arse about it, by saying perhaps I didn't watch it closely enough or didn't remember it well - when I can quite clearly remember enough about it to form a valid opinion. You still haven't told me its supposed depth, you seem to believe it does have more depth than it actually does.

And just to lay to rest what you said before...

My rating of the film. 3.5/5 = decent.
But it doesn't have this depth you imagine it to have.
Racism is bad. The end.
I'm sure other films manage to explore it in a more indepth manner.

Too much slow-mo as well. Slow-mo is cheesy.

Seriously? Which of his movies have you seen? Spike Lee is known for his vibrant use of colors, having primarily black casts, and his use of humor. I really don't see any of those things going on in American History X.

Really? Do The Right Thing and Clockers are fantastic and even his mainstream The Inside Man was solid enough.
