‘Do You Like Prince Movies?’ Podcast: ‘The Interview,’ ‘The Gambler,’ and More

Sony Pictures

This week Alex and Wesley trade holiday-break stories. Alex watched a bunch of movies: The Gambler, Butter on the Latch, and Thou Wast Mild and Lovely. Wesley watched and loved The Honorable Woman.

Before taking off, Alex remembers he saw The Interview, so there’s a discussion of its hilarity (or lack thereof) and it possibly being unnecessary after the bro-pocalypse of This Is the End. Also: Wesley has officially had it with “bromance,” and, to Wesley’s shock, Alex hasn’t seen one of Wesley’s favorite movies. Alex also reads a bit from next month’s new Prince Movies Book Club book, Morrissey’s Autobiography, which he makes sound as good as he knows it is.
