Blake Lively in 'The Rhythm Section'

The Rhythm Section

“We are a paaaart of the Rhyyythm Nation!” – errrr, I mean, Section. The Rhythm Section. That’s the movie we’re talking about this week. Anywho, we are joined by our good friend Joelle Monique to discuss the Blake Lively “accent-vehicle,” The Rhythm Section. Ify calls in to review the new F9 trailer. And, as always, we have staff picks.

In news, Joaquin Phoenix calls out the systematic racism of the film industry, Robert Downey Jr. came up with the “dragon enema” joke in Dolittle, and Paul Reubens wants the Safide Brothers to make a “dark” Pee-wee Herman movie.

Staff Picks:

Drea – Horse Girl
Alonso – Crooklyn
Joelle – Locke & Key

With Drea Clark, Alonso Duralde, Joelle Monique, and Ify Nwadiwe.
