It's Friday and we are hot, fresh, sexy, and cool with this episode, bbs! James bring to discussion the new SciFi Natalie Portman thriller, Annihilation directed by Alex Garland (of Ex Machina fame)... are we sensing a little...Whitewashing?! Double N and Lil J discuss the lack of representation for Asian American woman in film, drafts of manuscripts, Tessa and Gina, and James' love for Natalie Portman. Moving forward to the Korners- James continues the Hollywood trend by discussing the movie, Detroit directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is it FUBU aka For Us By Us? They chat about the 1960s riots- how many there actually were. It will surprise you. In Nnekay's Korner- she wants to give an update on the power outage in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria on September 20th. How many people are still out power, who is in charge of fixing the crisis, and what can we do about it.
