Vince & Len return with loads of email and comments from the Missionaries before reviewing the Frankie Lyman bio-pic WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE starring Larenz Tate, Halle Berry, Lela Rechon and Vivica A. Fox.
Music blogger and podcaster Toya Haynes (First Time I Heard) rejoins the Mission to return to 2005 for a fun retrospective on Dave Chappelle's BLOCK PARTY with live performances by Dead Prez, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Moe Def and a historic reunion of The Fugees.
Vince and Len close out their celebration of THE GIFTS THAT KEEP ON GIVING with an appreciation of Jeffrey Wright in 2008's Cadillac Records, with Adrian Brody, Gabrielle Union, Columbus Short and Mos Def. Oh yeah -- and Beyonce.
The emails are in and one of them stings...sharply. After that, Vince introduces the review of 1985's Fast Forward (starring Don Franklin and - remember Michael DeLorenzo?) and sits back to revel in Len's...niceness?
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.
