25 From 84: My Favorite Films Of 1984 (25 movies items)

"Okay, okay, so maybe the non-musical parts of the Kid's debut film leave something to be desired. But this 1984 rock 'n' roll anomaly featuring the Minneapolis funk acts Prince, the Revolution, the Time & Apollonia-6, contains concert performances that, along with their charismatically maneuvered dance moves, are some of the most energetic ever caught on film. And all the songs, each one penned by the main musical mini-might star of this show, culminate into one of the best movie soundtracks "

"Re-watch - June 23rd So I got home Monday night after work & had "1999" playing in my head non-stop. Since I was clearly in a Prince mood I figured I'd go ahead & watch this, and as it turns out I watched it the week of its 30th anniversary. Purple Rain is totally worth watching for the music alone, as it showcases some of Prince's best songs with the bonus of Morris Day & the Time performing "Jungle Love" and "The Bird". The story is OK and does a serviceable job of moving things along, and th"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"An early, simpler, version of the unpronounceable symbol that Prince changed his name to during his dispute with Warner Bros. Records is painted on the side Prince's motorcycle's gas tank. William Blinn's first draft of the script was titled "Dreams". Prince didn't like the story and wanted the word "purple" in the title. The success of this project benefitted just about every division of Warner Bros., the box office grosses helped the film division, the soundtrack sales helped the record di"

Biopics Worth Watching (17 movies items)

"It's sad that there are no screen shots to choose from for this film. This is such a lively, encompassing film that you almost don't notice that Prince is actually a partially good actor. At times, you lose your focus in the drawn-out conversations, but that's a feature in most films. I love that my parents will watch this without peeping a word, until the music starts. You honestly don't think about it that much, but as soon as you realize it, you're humming along. I wish this were made more "
