Last night, I sat down with my new boyfriend Apple TV and watched an early 90's classic, Poetic Justice.

Starring screen legends Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur, Poetic Justice was the much-anticipated followup to John Singleton's Boyz N the Hood. Like a lot of directors (M Night), lightning didn't strike twice for Singleton. Unless you consider Michael Jackson's Remember the Time. (Kidding, by the way. That video stinks.)

The movie is pretty awful and has no point whatsoever, but there are a few well done scenes. My favorite part, and I quote it all the time, is when Aisha goes in to the gas station to buy malt liquor, but finds out they don't carry Old English 800. "You ain't got no O-dees?!"

Maya Angelou, the most overrated poet ever, has a cameo in it. Turns out she wrote all the poetry used in the film. Ready to barf? The movie is called Poetic Justice because the main character is named Justice and she writes poetry. Cheese balls.

Tone Loc was in it too. He was actually looking kinda sexy.

Had me thinking, "Whatever happened to Tone Loc?" And then I remembered...
