Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur in Poetic Justice

The real-life dynamic between the pairing makes the on-screen chemistry crackle even more. Janet Jackson was already a superstar, while Tupac Shakur was a rapper-actor on the rise who on paper didn’t seem like her match. Yet Shakur’s unbelievable charisma meant his character held his own and felt like a more-than-viable match for Justice (aka Janet — Miss Jackson if you’re nasty).

Poetic Justice is a moving and thoughtful romance and road movie that is among the best by the late, great John Singleton.
