Len gets Vince's thoughts on soulful remakes that are superior to the originals (so some say)and the hip hop opera CARMEN starring Mekhi Phifer and Beyonce Knowles in her acting debut gets more honest scrutiny than it got in 2001.
The Men celebrate the career and influence of TV character actor Helen Martin who makes one of her rare big screen appearances in Robert Townsend's Hollywood Shuffle. Also featuring Ann Marie Johnson and Keenan Ivory Wayans.
It's the 50th stop on the Micheaux Mission so Vince and Len make it a big one, with a review of one of the seminal films of black cinema in the last 30 years - Robert Townsend's THE FIVE HEARTBEATS (1991). First they chat about songs that could/should be movies, read listener feedback and share the world's greatest iTunes review with one another.
