YMMV / Tales from the Hood

  • Cringe Comedy: Carl, while in a crumpled heap on the floor, says to Sissy, "This shit ain't over, bitch!"
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Christopher Young's score beautifully accents the movie, especially the music that accompanies the Twist Ending, "Chorale Postlude"
  • Harsher in Hindsight: "Rogue Cop Revelation" can be incredibly difficult to watch nowadays due to the many cases in the past few years of police brutality against black especially considering the amount of these cases which ended in the death of innocent people. Although it's worth noting that this movie was made after the wake of the Rodney King riots, another point at which corruption and racial abuse within many American police departments was similarly under criticism.
  • Narm: WELCOME TO HELL, motherfuckerssss! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
  • Nightmare Fuel: The dolls. Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, the dolls. The mural featuring said dolls does not help matters,
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Martin Moorehouse asks the rather poignant question: "Where were you when I needed you, brother?"
    • When Crazy K tries to justify some of his murders as killing people who had wronged him, a little girl (Tasha Johnson) with a hole in her chest points out "I didn't do anything."
  • The Woobie: The dead little girl. She politely points out that she was only playing in her room when the stray bullets got her. To a lesser extent Walter, but he commits patricide.
    • Well, technically he wasn't the one who did it in the end...
    • And besides, he wasn't intending to kill Carl. He was trying to stop him from brutalizing his mother and teacher.
