  1. Menace II Society (1993)

Director: Albert and Allen Hughes

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller

IMDB rating: 7.5

The brutal story of urban street crime by the Hughes Brothers is searingly real. The film recounts the criminal escapades of Kane, a street hustler and member of a Los Angeles gang who does whatever it takes to survive. Ronnie (Pinkett Smith) is the only one who can talk sense into Kane despite the gang violence, drugs, and 40s in every hand, held next to a gun.

The composition as a whole radiates from Jada Pinkett Smith’s courage, heart, and moral compass. Quite an accomplishment for her debut film!

Director: Cher, Nancy Savoca

Genre: Drama, Thriller

Cher and Nancy Savoca co-directed the little-known yet famous TV movie If These Walls Could Talk. The anthology’s three parts trace the development of medical abortion from 1952 to 1996.

It is one of the projects that Jada was given during the early stages of her career. She played Carla Purty in the movie. The movie’s second key character was Sherman Klump. Carla and Klump were the focus of the entire movie. Everyone made fun of Klump since he was shown in the movie as being rather obese.

Consequently, he uses his serum on himself as a result of this and drops 250 pounds in a couple of seconds. He initially cheers for the weight loss but later learns that the serum’s advantages are only momentary. Carla is invited to go on another date with Sherman at The Scream under cover of Buddy Love.

Director: Wes Craven

Genre: Mystery, Horror

In Scream 2, Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott is attending college when a new string of copycat killings brings back the horrors of Woodsboro from the previous year. The idea of having several killers is still plausible, which is a major victory for the genre.

Here is some extremely interesting trivia for the fans of the horror genre. Jada is brutally murdered in the opening scene of Scream 2, which was directly taken from the opening scene of the 1980 slasher movie He Knows You’re Alone, starring Tom Hanks.
