It's TIME we SETTLE this MESS (2011 edition)

Which movie is worse, and why?

Prince: Graffiti Bridge

Cons:

Dreadful acting

Dreadful Script

Dreadful premise

Spontaneous songs that don't fit

Pros:

Prince's hair is kind of nice

Some of the songs are good

Vanilla Ice : Cool as Ice


Cons:

Dreadful acting

Dreadful plot

Dreadful script

Dreadful chemistry

Pros:

Unintentionally hilarious in parts

I actually liked Cold as Ice. I thought it was very entertaining and had a decent story. Graffiti Bridge just straight up sucked!! Poor story, poor acting and Prince had very little speaking parts. The only thing good in the movie to me was the Morris Day parts(acting wise). The video performances are good. Thats it to me. Cold as Ice...good movie

I can't believe that any one person (critics aside) has managed to sit through both of these awful movies.

Well, Graffiti Bridge has better music and cooler people in it. So it wins.

Is that the one where he wears Indian facepaint and is sort of dressed like something from Alice in Wonderland mixed with a hooker in the East Village?

Honestly I don't know what was up with Prince and 'em during the making of "Graffiti Bridge". I still kinda laugh when Morris starts crying near the end of the film. Like what? lol Well he did have a MOMENT after joking with Prince's band. I never got those scenes though. What was he crying about?

I can't believe anyone actually saw Cool as Ice lol I have never even considered watching it and I forgot it even came out until now.

GB is the worst movie I have ever seen, but at least there are a couple good reasons to see it--Prince and The Time, even though they seem like caricatures of caricatures and the music scenes suck too.

There is literally no good reason to see Cool as Ice, though that GIF is quite honestly tempting me quite a bit.

That's why I couldn't get into it. They were like caricatures of their 1980s selves. confused

GB is almost as bad as the death scene in UTCM. I mean, come on.... I'm a big Prince fan, but I was saying go ahead and die already! What was with that falling after getting shot? a ballet move? Prince: stick to music and live performances.

I know, right?! He might as well had did a split and came back up and then down again a couple of times, a la the moves he did towards the end of If I Was Ur Girlfriend in the SOTT movie. Oh man, that would be HILARIOUS!!! lol

Well, I've never seen the Vanilla Ice movie so I can't give an opinion but it's got to be pretty horrible if it's worse than "Grashitty Bridge". lol

How often do you have fans who say such a thing about their favorite musicians? lol

Seriously, Prince had to have achieved pure crap for such a statement to be so common among his fans. lol

It's dreadful, but it's actually more sensical than GB. lol

I know that's not saying much. lol

Cool as Ice has awesome stunts!

"achieve" is the right word, because the movie is not just crappy or lame, it's shockingly inept, confusing, and out of touch

I didn't know Vanilla Ice made a movie eek The HELL?!

Scared to watch that thing now, but knowing my own fascination with awesomely BAD films, I think I might do it boxed

Hell, I love Showgirls. I don't have a reason to be smug.
