A Hood Movie was a type of movie genre that was popular and many of them was being made during the late 1980s through the mid 1990s but they were really popular during The '90s. They were about urban life, often in a "ghetto" type situation. They were usually a Coming-of-Age Story film with a African American boy (occasionally a Hispanic American boy) that was a teenager or young adult being the protagonist and the rest of the film would depict how life is living in the Ghetto. The ghetto setting frequently overlaps with Gangsterland.
