I went into this movie unaware of the "critical" backlash it was getting by other reviewers. I walked out of the film loving it. Action Sci Fi but with a emotional spin on it. I go into greater detail on why I enjoyed the movie so much in the podcast. One of the main reason I identified with this film was that it centered around a father and son dynamic. Also the imagery of a black father and son protagonists in a science fiction film is unto itself ground breaking. The fact that Will and Jaden are father in son in real life is just icing on the cake. Co host Qstorm has not seen the movie, but has read the bad reviews online. Has his opinion of the movie been tainted by those reviews? Does cynicism get in the way of our own perception of movies, before we see them? Listen to the show and find out.

In this weeks episode of The Prince Podcast we are joined by Arthur and Jehan of The Music Snobs Podcast. We tackle the huge topic of Prince in the 90's. With over 15 albums, a name change, Hip-Hop and the infamous battle with Warner Bros, the 90's for Prince was a roller-coaster. This is one of our longest shows ever. Over 3 hours of hardcore Prince discussion!
In this episode we review Breakfast Can Wait and more new songs by Prince. Are the albums Dirty Mind, Controversy, 1999 and Purple Rain the quintessential albums of Prince's career? Michael Dean argues that everything always falls back to the legacy of those albums. We also ask the question, (and try to answer) who is Prince's core audience? Fans of his concerts or fans of his albums?
