Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

One of our most divisive episodes to date! The crew is joined by the wonderful Dave Holmes as they review Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The line is quickly drawn in the sand between those who love this movie and those who hate. You'll have to listen to find out who is on which side! Plus, professor and critic Tavia Nyong'o calls in to discuss "whiteness" as it's presented in cinema. He also elaborates on the recent screening series at the Brooklyn Academy of Music called "BAMcinématek and The Racial Imaginary Institute: On Whiteness." Much to the joy of April, there is an in depth conversation on White Chicks. And as always, we have Staff Picks.

In news, James Gunn is fired, Marvel provided counseling centers for Infinity War, and the Cats movie announces its cast.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - The Lost Boys
April - Montenegro
Alonso - Buddies
Dave - Eighth Grade

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

Next week we're discussing Mission Impossible: Fallout

With Dave Holmes, Tavia Nyong'o, April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.

This week, Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler and Karen Tongson are joined by novelist Mallory O’Meara, host of the Max Fun Podcast Reading Glasses. The gang will discuss books and reading habits.

Mallory is all about is all about the book Text Me When You Get Home, which looks into the myth that women aren’t meant to be friends with other women. Margaret is all about the podcast The Habitat, which tracks people as they live out a simulated mission on Mars to learn that no matter which planet you’re on, living with strangers will always annoy you. Guy is all about the film The Dressmaker, which he fell in love with the only way he knew how: by reading the Wikipedia article. Karen is all about the surprisingly affecting Netflix documentary The Rachel Divide.

In honor of Summer reading season being on the horizon, the panel will discuss what books, magazines and articles have caught their eye lately. Plus they’ll talk about where and how often they love to read, and Mallory will share one book that she absolutely can’t stand.

With Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Karen Tongson and Mallory O’Meara .

That’s My Jam:

Mallory O’Meara - A Perfect Circle - Hourglass.
