Prince Avalanche
Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch co-star in David Gordon Green's pleasing backcounty dramady, whose tone is heightened by its setting in burned-out Bastrop, Texas.
Film Review  August 16, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Sometimes the simplest stories are the best. Stake out an ideal location and two top-flight actors, add a screenplay loosely adapted from an obscure Icelandic comedy Either Way, mix with the contributions of a dependable crew and postproduction participants, and voilà: Prince Avalanche..."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this nearly bloodless, family-friendly throwback to a cinematic age when Persian palace intrigue, winsome princesses, and ambitious princes ruled the back lots.
Film Review  May 28, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...What is Brit director Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral) doing helming an epic, CGI-intensive, scimitar-propelled riff on 1001 Arabian Nights, one that's based on a video game, no less? He’s having a whale of a time, to all appearances, mining classic Hollywood swords-and-sandals tropes and allowing Kingsley, as a villainous schemer, to run wonderfully wild as he chomps his slinky way through all the non-computer-generated scenery in sight. Prince of Persia is by no means a great film, but it is an entertaining one, a nearly bloodless, family-friendly throwback of sorts to a cinematic age when Persian palace intrigue, winsome princesses, and ambitious princes ruled the back lots and Errol Flynn was in like, well, Errol Flynn..."

The Prince & Me
Who says you can't be a princess and go to medical school too?
Film Review  April 9, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...Paige, in her last year at the University of Wisconsin, can’t be bothered with any romantic tomfoolery; on the other hand, sex is the only thing Danish exchange student Eddie Williams (Mably) has on his mind. Eddie is actually European playboy Edvard, the Crown Prince of Denmark; weary of the indefatigable paparazzi and his disapproving parents, Eddie decides to enroll incognito at the university..."

Impoverished Dutch teen is lured by promises of wealth
Film Review  August 14, 2015, by Steve Davis
"...No longer a child but not yet a man (but getting there), the young protagonist in the uneven but likable Dutch film Prince is adrift in the betwixt years of late adolescence, struggling to claim an identity at the edge of 17. For Ayoub (Elasri), the low-income Amsterdam neighborhood where he lives with his lonely mother and sympathetic half-sister is a dead end on a life journey that’s barely started..."

Hip-hop mogul sets the record straight?
DAILY Music  February 9, 2016, by Kahron Spearman

Bios begin at a 5th Ward-raised car salesman turned founder and CEO of Houston’s Rap-A-Lot Records, one of the most influential labels in hip-hop.

The Green Prince
The son of a Hamas leader becomes an Israeli spy and searches for a moral center.
Film Review  October 24, 2014, by Louis Black
"...It begins as a riveting documentary on a Hamas leader's son who becomes an Israeli spy, code-named the Green Prince. The film not only focuses on this unlikely protagonist but the Israeli Shin Bet agent who turned him..."

Do Me Baby! Austin Does Prince
Only Bowie may have prompted era peer the following year
DAILY Music  April 27, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Prince high-kickin’ his best James Brown impression atop a grand piano at the Frank Erwin Center in 1997 remains only slightly less memory-searing than a hurricane-like rainstorm on the night the diminutive Hendrix disciple destroyed San Antonio’s AT&T Center in 2004. Total recall also dusts off a sovereign CD, Do Me Baby! Austin Does Prince...."

A 'Prince' Among Men
David Gordon Green makes himself at home in Bastrop for 'Prince Avalanche'
Screens Story  August 16, 2013, by Dan Solomon
"...David Gordon Green's career has had a lot of highlights: From his critically acclaimed debut George Washington and the Sundance smash All the Real Girls (which also helped introduce Zooey Deschanel to the world), to his high-profile studio comedies like Pineapple Express and The Sitter, the director's career arc has been steadily rising. So it's perhaps no surprise that his latest film, the Bastrop-set Prince Avalanche, draws from the best of both sides of Green's career..."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
We're still wild about Harry, even though this new adventure prefers to flush pink with its lovesick teens than forward-thrust toward the mammoth battle of good vs. evil.
Film Review  July 17, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...From its terrifying first tangle with soul-sucking Dementors to the tragic last-act death of Harry’s godfather, The Order of the Phoenix was tonally true to the deepening sinisterness of Rowling’s books: This is, after all, a world at war. The opening frames of The Half-Blood Prince further the series’ urgency and panic: Voldemort’s agents, the Death Eaters, have launched a full-scale assault on both wizards and Muggles (regular folk, that is), sacking shops and laying waste to the Millennium Bridge in an opening volley that plays like a vise grip on the lungs..."

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
The Pevensie kids are summoned back to Narnia for yet another mystical adventure based on C.S. Lewis' series of fantasy books.
Film Review  May 23, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...And as for the residents of that world beyond the wardrobe, a whopping 1,300 years have passed, scant few of them pleasant. This second in the Narnia films opens with screams, accompanied by royal treachery, attempted murder, and the flight of Prince Caspian (Barnes) from his castle keep to the forest beyond..."

The Prince of Tides
Streisand and her collaborators, including author Pat Conroy, did a good job of turning his unwieldy book into an interesting movie. In this version, Melinda Dillon has a small role...
Film Review  December 27, 1991, by Kathleen Maher
"...Streisand, the director, seems to lose control a bit here too, and the movie loses steam for a time while Nolte and Streisand bill and coo. As a love story, Prince of Tides is uninteresting..."

SXSW Music Live: Prince Tribute
Free Auditorium Shores “partyup” rages like 1999
DAILY SXSW  March 18, 2017, by Thomas Fawcett
"...If, like most of us, you didn’t make it into Prince’s marathon set at La Zona Rosa during SXSW 2013 – and you weren’t snacking inside IHOP when he popped in for a late-night breakfast – Friday night at Auditorium Shores may be the closest many of us will ever come to seeing the late Minneapolis legend perform live...."

SXSW Music Keynote: James Prince
Rap mogul clearly needs to pen a memoir
DAILY SXSW  March 19, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...“Fifth Ward is one of the most beautiful places in Houston,” smiled mogul James Prince, tongue planted in cheek. In a comfortable half-conversation, half-interview with close friend and Southern rap legend Bun B on Friday, the Rap-A-Lot Records CEO and businessman delved into the beginnings of the label, giving back, and his love for the home team...."

DVDanger: 'Halloween'/'Prince of Darkness'/'Eyes Without a Face'
Three throwback horrors for your Halloween pleasure
DAILY Screens  October 29, 2013, by Richard Whittaker
"...By contrast, Carpenter is happy to be the king of American terror, and Scream Factory's valiant effort to introduce modern viewing audiences to his entire back catalog is now robbing the late ’80s graveyard with Prince of Darkness. This is the turning point for Carpenter fans: It's either the pinnacle of his career, or it's the movie where he started to go off the boil and it's next stop Ghosts of Mars...."

Bab'Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul
In the Tunisian desert, a young girl and her grandfather spin stories of woe, lost love, and religious disenchantment in this trancelike movie.
Film Review  July 11, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...And finally, imagine if Chaucer had received funding from a consortium of Tunisian, French, Iranian, German, Hungarian, and British banks and business conglomerates. Do that and you’ve got a pretty good hold on Bab’Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul, which, if nothing else, proves that, even in our troubled times, East and West can still come together, when necessary, to produce something completely and utterly confusing..."

Steven Prince: 30 Years After
Tommy Pallotta's film, "American Prince," is available for download.
DAILY Screens  June 12, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Remember that scene (as if you could forget) in Pulp Fiction in which Uma Thurman's Mia is revived from a drug overdose via a shot of adrenaline directly to her heart? Thought that sprang forth wholly from Quentin Tarantino's twisted imagination? No, that incident, more or less, is something witnessed personally by Steven Prince, who tells that story (among many, many others) in Martin Scorsese's 1978 documentary "American Boy." Virtually unavailable these days, Scorsese completists have always placed a premium on "American Boy." The champion raconteur and former junkie was at one time the road manager for Neil Diamond before turning to acting and other things (he appears in Richard Linklater's Waking Life and, most famously, plays the gun dealer in Taxi Driver. Now Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly producer, Tommy Pallotta, has made a new documentary, "American Prince," that visits with the cult figure to catch up on the last 30 years..."

Why Is Austin Prince-less; Hint: Don't Blame the Promoters
Postmarks  March 31, 2004
"...Dear Editor, An open question for the concert promoters of Austin: How can you let another year go by where Prince doesn't play Austin, while rat holes like Reno; Bakersfield; Biloxi; Bossier City, La.; and Council Bluffs, Iowa, are all serving as hosts this year to one of the most talented musicians of our generation? Seriously, if David Bowie can play the friggin' Backyard, then Prince could certainly pack the Erwin Center...."

There's Even More to 'Prince'
Postmarks  June 11, 2007
"...Dear Editor, Re: Your cover story on Jim “Prince” Hughes [“How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mighty Atom,” Music, June 8]: Nice that you recognized this genuine Austin icon, before he disappears as have so many others. But Jimmy is so much deeper than your story lets on and has done so much more for Austin than he's apparently revealed to your reporter..."

Let's Look for the Purple Banana With Princess
Judging by their tribute band, Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum would die 4 U, Prince
Arts Story  April 21, 2016, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Despite the setting – a comedy festival – and the star – Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph – there's nothing intentionally funny about Princess, the band that the comedy actress and her longtime friend and college roommate Gretchen Lieberum, a funk and jazz musician in California, perform in, as homage to Prince, one of the finest and most freaky performance artists of our time. Since debuting on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in September 2012 with a scratch take on the Purple Rain staple "Darling Nikki," the duo has operated in awe of the Purple One and attempted at every turn to live up to his legend...."

"...Flash forward to Austin, right here, right now, and little Jimmy Hughes, long known by his nickname "Prince," hasn't had that radiant little kid inside decay a jot. Indeed, all evidence points to Hughes having a half-life far surpassing that of, for example, your standard daikaiju ("giant monster")...."

"...David Prince leans on English ecologist and philosopher Garrett Hardin's 1968 essay "The Tragedy of the Commons" as the primary influence for his solo show, which depicts an imagined tropical location juxtaposed with stark reminders of domestic livelihood. Hardin's writings focus on man's exploitation of common resources to protect self-interest..."

"...One day, in the middle of the Sahara, the aviator's plane fails and falls to the sand. He lands safely, attempts repairs, does not succeed, and falls asleep, only to be awakened with a request made by a beautiful boy, blond and uniformed in red, white, and blue, with stars on his shoulders and black boots on his feet: "Please, sir, draw me a sheep." And so, forsaking the loss of his childhood and the gloom of his adulthood, the aviator draws again and thus befriends the Little Prince, who will change his life forever...."

Film Review  May 17, 2002, by Steve Davis
"...Unfortunately, somebody left the cake out in the rain in this film version of Marivaux's comedy of romantic deception and gender disguise. The story is the stuff of silly drawing room farce: A lovestruck princess infiltrates a secluded villa disguised as a man, for the purpose of gaining access to an exiled prince who is the rightful heir to her homeland's throne..."

Your Highness
This vulgar medieval travesty is awfully good fun when it works.
Film Review  April 8, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...The film is equal parts Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Albert Pyun's 1982 low-budget gem, The Sword and the Sorcerer. McBride plays Prince Thadeous, the cowardly, onanistic, and jealous brother of Prince Fabious (Franco, in a goofy, winning performance that appears to have been indescribably fun for him)..."

The Wackness
An odd-couple pairing between a teenage pot dealer and the shrink with whom he trades weed for sessions anchors this story about coming of age in New York City during the Nineties.
Film Review  July 25, 2008, by Kimberley Jones
"...Starring: Ben Kingsley, Josh Peck, Famke Janssen, Olivia Thirlby, Mary-Kate Olsen, Jane Adams, Method Man and Aaron Yoo. In the early Nineties, you couldn't get a sweeter seasonal jam than DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's "Summertime." This coming-of-age comedy, set in New York circa the summer of '94, uses the song to good effect, although its ode to fraternity, fly ladies, neighborhood barbecues, and family reunions couldn't be further from the reality of Luke Shapiro (Peck)..."

"...There's an adage in baseball that when a hitter can no longer crush his favorite pitch, it's time to consider retirement. Sidney Lumet's latest return to the muscular urban law enforcement/courtroom drama genre that's served him so well in the past (Serpico, Prince of the City, The Verdict) suggests it may be time for him to heed that advice..."
