Episode notes

The Old Guard

To celebrate the beginning of the MaxFunDrive, Joelle Monique is back! And she’s here to chat about the new Gina Prince-Bythewood film, The Old Guard. Per usual, Ify fawns over Charlize Theron. Alonso is currently working his way through 15 pounds of bacon. And Drea is putting honey on her face. Plus, the gang talks about their favorite use of makeup in movies. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Ludacris teases the possibility of the next Fast & Furious movie taking place in space, Zendaya and John David Washington filmed an entire movie in quarantine, and James Gunn says that in his original script for Scooby Doo Velma was explicitly gay.
