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 (publicized) cases in the past few years of police brutality against black people, especially considering the amount of cases which ended in the deaths of those who were innocent. 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!!!
    • The appearance of Carl in that Cringe Comedy moment above. Might've been genuinely disturbing if we never saw it.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped:
    • In "Rogue Cop Revelation", there's one dropped about how all that is needed for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing, a decision that seals Clarence's fate of being set up for the murders of the corrupt cops. Martin Moorehouse sums it up with the rather poignant question: "Where were you when I NEEDED you, brother?"
    • When Crazy K tries to justify some of his murders as killing those 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.
