Question about UTCM

Okay, I finally decided to get the Blue-Ray Collection. I've only seen PR so far and I heard that Graffiti Bridge was not a great movie, so I plan to never watch it, tho it's in it. BUT, UTCM is also part of the collection and now the thing with that movie is, that some people really like it and some people really don't.

I already ordered it, it's coming next week and now my question is, would you recommend watching the movie? Or not?

Personally, I like it. It’s no great masterpiece but it’s fun. Besides, if you ordered it, it would be a waste not to watch it.

Why did you order the three disc set if you didn't want to watch Graffiti Bridge and aren't sure about watching UTCM? You probably should have just bought Purple Rain on blu-ray. Give your self a treat and watch them all. At least then you can make up your own mind on whether or not you like them. smile

Because it was the only chance to see UTCM with german dub. I want to watch UTCM, but I wasn't sure because of some reviews. I only know the Wrecka Staw Scene lol

You come off as a dick, I was just asking for some opinions that doesn't mean I can't think for myself. I already ordered it and just wanted to know what others think about the movie.

Just think Graffiti Bridge as an 90-minute long music video with bad acting segues.

I did by ordering it, I just wanted to ask about other opinions, that doesn't mean that I won't watch it if people think the movie is bad.

I just wanted to know what to expect.

I love Graffitti Bridge because it's unique. The music and the message of the movie are truly before its time.

I really feel like you're trolling people. No person who can think for themselves is really depending other people's opinions about some movie that much.

And you've already contradicted yourself. You said "that doesn't mean that I won't watch it if people think the movie is bad", yet your opening line was, "I heard that Graffiti Bridge was not a great movie, so I plan to never watch it". Doesn't matter which movie you're referring to, because your thought process cancels itself out.

You could have watched them both by now.

YES!!!

Under the Cherry Moon is a must

the music is wonderful

the visuals/imagery is wonderful

And it's pretty good up to a point, when it looks like clearly Prince took over the directing.
There is an alternative ending everyone else like and thought should have been in the movie.
But Prince wanted someone to die, since he couldn't get it in Purple Rain.

The opening scene is wonderful.

Definitely watch all three. They aren't all good, but they're a window into Prince's mind and art. I get where he was going with all of them creatively, even if he didn't succeed.

In my experience, it helps to think of the movie and the corresponding album as one unit. The movie explains the music a little and the music explains the movie a lot. And however it turned out, the world inside Prince's head was always a fascinating place.
And the MUSIC continues...forever...

I am not trolling I just asked a question and no I couldn't have watched by now 'cause I didn't have the money to buy them.

Everyone else can give a normal answer but you jump to the conclusion that I can't think for myself just because I asked a question to UTCM.

Okay, I didn't realize that the dub was an issue. I hope that you will watch both UTCM and GB and enjoy them. It took me a couple of viewings of GB to really 'get' what it was about.

If you're a Prince fan, then it's all must see. This is not to say that it's all "good", but Prince fans should see them all at least once, if for no other reason to have your own opinions.

Besides, you're buying them, spin them.

In my opinon, UTCM is Prince's best movie. It presents a side of Prince we had never seen before. The movie is hilarious and fun. Watch it!

GB isn't good. But, the music's great and Morris & Jerome are hilarious. It's worth one watch just for that.

We were HERE, where were you?
