What Is Ice Cube's Best Movie?

Can you believe it's been 23 years since Ice Cube made the successful transition from gangsta-rap icon to popular movie star? Back when he was cast as Doughboy in 1991's Boyz n the Hood, he seemed to be just another piece of a trend that correlated with the rise of new urban crime films at the time. Since then, he's led comedies, action movies, sci-fi horror flicks, college dramas and family films, and he's also directed two features, including a documentary. 

His latest leading role is in Ride Along, in which he plays an Atlanta cop who brings his future brother-in-law (Kevin Hart) on patrol to determine if the guy is good enough for his sister (Tika Sumpter). It's not a role that will win him an Oscar, but then that's never seemed to be Ice Cube's career goal. Even though his film debut (Boyz) was nominated for two major Academy Awards, he hasn't chased such prestige gigs since.

That said, he did costar in Three Kings, possibly his greatest movie, still. That was made by David O. Russell, who you may have noticed is a golden-statue golden boy of late (his American Hustle just picked up 10 nominations). How great would it be to see them collaborate again? Imagine Ice Cube earning an acting nomination as a result.

Or would you prefer he did another Friday movie? It's been more than a decade since the last one (Friday After Next), and it does appear that the original, which turns 20 next year, remains one of the favorites of all his movies.  

This week we polled users on Twitter for their pick for Ice Cube's best movie, and the unsurprisingly focused results are below, followed by a few select tweets.

Friday: 4
Boyz n the Hood: 4
Three Kings: 1
