Black Panther

This week we are so lucky to have on director, actress, and dancer, Delila Vallot. Delila is a prolific worker and has too many credits to list. But some of her films as director include the thriller Tunnel Vision and the documentary Can You Dig This? which won a Jury Award at the Los Angeles Film Festival. On this episode she is here to discuss Black Panther. She and April talk about Michael B. Jordan's acting techniques and the effects of going method for a role. They touch upon how director Ryan Coogler was able to take a huge property like Black Panther and still make it personal. And they cover the intentional use of the actor's natural hair in the film and the importance of representing it in media.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch Black Panther.

With April Wolfe with Delila Vallot.

Like the Jetsons meet the Flintstones, we've got a crossover episode! Our friends, film critic Dave White and digital strategist Wynter Mitchell, from fellow Max Fun show, Pop Rocket, join April and Ricky to discuss all things Black Panther. The gang starts by discussing the wonderful attributes of the film itself; from Ryan Coogler formulating a personal Marvel film to the casting and costuming. Then the conversation moves on to the effects this film has had on society and black people everywhere. The crew touches upon the power and importance of seeing themselves represented on screen. Plus, they also discuss who is the hottest character in the film (Dave White took a "poll of the gays" so this is a scientific study).

In news, Edward James Olmos returns to directing, SAG-AFTRA ends wigging investigation, and cinematographer Alan Caso makes a plea for diversity.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

April - Game Night
Dave - The Woman Who Left
Wynter - One Dark Night
Ricky - Parliament Funkadelic - The Mothership Connection (Live in Houston, TX, 1976)

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!
