Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

One of our most divisive episodes to date! The crew is joined by the wonderful Dave Holmes as they review Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The line is quickly drawn in the sand between those who love this movie and those who hate. You'll have to listen to find out who is on which side! Plus, professor and critic Tavia Nyong'o calls in to discuss "whiteness" as it's presented in cinema. He also elaborates on the recent screening series at the Brooklyn Academy of Music called "BAMcinématek and The Racial Imaginary Institute: On Whiteness." Much to the joy of April, there is an in depth conversation on White Chicks. And as always, we have Staff Picks.

In news, James Gunn is fired, Marvel provided counseling centers for Infinity War, and the Cats movie announces its cast.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - The Lost Boys
April - Montenegro
Alonso - Buddies
Dave - Eighth Grade

The Witches of Eastwick

This week director Ramaa Mosley (The Brass Teapot, Tatterdemalion) stops by to discuss George Miller's The Witches of Eastwick. If you're looking for an in depth discussion on making independent feature films, this is a must listen for you. Ramaa opens up about the difficulties and rewards of creating your own movie - from fighting for what you need, to learning how to push back against producers interference, to working with actors. Plus, she discusses the influence that The Witches of Eastwick has had on her as an artist. April and Ramaa praise Jack Nicholson's performance as the devilish Daryl Van Horne, the masterful directing of George Miller, and the powerful women (Cher, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer) that drive the film.

Ramaa's latest film is Tatterdemalion
