I just watched Purple Rain for the first time. Basically it was like a thinly veiled story of his life. It was ok.
@ 4:45 - It's okay when viewed with a contemporary lens. In 1984 it was EPIC!
@6:57- I saw Purple Rain in the movies in 1984 and I HATED IT! The movie made no sense to me then and I wouldn't even think about paying AGAIN to see it now.BTW, how did the movie get into theaters so soon after Prince's death? Two days later? STRANGE.
Prince has been cremated.
^ GOOD. I hate big ghetto ass funerals. I want to be cremated when I die as well.
@8:50What didn't make sense? It was basically a snapshot of Prince's life (current relationships, parent issues), in between him performing in concert. It's not life changing or anything but I liked it.
@9:21We honored my mother wish as well.
I never knew the man had family. He never spoke of any siblings, cousins, aunts etc. If the movie Purple Rain held some truth about his parents they were messed up. 8:50p if you thought Purple Rain was bad did you see his other movie Under the cherry moon? That was a real acid trip. Made NO sense to me at all. However I did admire him. May he rest in peace.
