It’s well known in the Rocketeer community that our host this week, Wynter Mitchell-Ragnarok, is a huge horror buff. She watches two to three a week, and she is running out of horror flicks to watch on all the streaming services. Send her your recommendations! In the meantime, Wynter forced Karen, Margaret and Who Shot Ya?’s Ricky Carmona to subject themselves to some of her favorite movies from the holiday genre, such as Black Christmas, Silent Night, Deadly Night, and their sequels.
Margaret is all about ROMA, a new film by acclaimed director Alfonso Cuarón. The movie is heavily based on his childhood in Mexico City in the 1970s and his family’s live-in housekeeper.
Karen has a backhanded All About on Netflix’s bro-y, new food competition show The Final Table.
Ricky is all about Adam Sandler’s latest stand-up comedy special also on Netflix called 100% Fresh.
Wynter is all about season 1 of the USA Network crime drama The Sinner starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman.
That’s My Jam
Margaret – Phosphorescent – New Birth in New England.
Ricky – Sounds of Blackness – Optimistic
