This week, April sits down with director Karyn Kusama (Girl Fight, Jennifer's Body, The Invitation) to discuss the Kathryn Bigelow vampire classic, Near Dark. The two marvel at Bigelow's mastery in crafting a vampire western, the amazing performance of Bill Paxton as the villainous Severen, and the elegant cinematography throughout the film. Plus, Karyn talks about her journey as a director from discovering Michelle Rodriguez for Girl Fight, to subverting genre expectations for Jennifer's Body.

Minority Korner

Is it really Hooray for Hollywood in this episode of Minority Korner? Yes, James and Nnekay are celebrating the Oscars this week. But first, Why does James always default to the Jurrassic Park Theme? Was it a game changer?!Dive into James' experience filming Soup Meets Sandwich... and JUST how much James loves Campbell's Soup... whereas Nnekay just wants some of that sweet soup money. The duo ponder if starting late in a career is doable and grabs inspiration from Viola Davis, Morgan Freeman, and Julia Childs. ALSO who is this James Arthur singer chap trying to steal OUR James' steez, Nnekay wants to KNOW. We start things off with Nnekay's Korner, this week she's covering the various types of protest pins celebs were sporting, and some of the interesting political statements the commercials from New York Times, Audible, and GE made during the broadcast of the Oscars. In James' Korner he tackles if the oscars have truly moved on from #oscarssowhite. He also question the myth of the liberal media and if Hollywood's standards more open minded than what they portray themselves to be... hint... things aren't as rosy as we me all think. In honor of our new Tidbit Korner, here are some more tidbits from the episode: Bill Paxton, Kerry Washington, Moonlight, La La Land, Mc Scat Cat, Vera Wang and More! Enjoyyyyyyy!!!!!!!
