OoooOOOOOooooOOoo... it's a little past Halloween, but the wonder twins have got the spirit! They are bringing you a Spoooootacular Episode. Nnekay has got her candle set up which reminds James of The Craft and our girl Rachel True- who actually reads Tarot Cards. Nnekay recently watched The Craft and she was reminded of super sexy giant windbreakers and khakis... and some weird problematic themes exhibited in the movie which might speak to the climate we're currently dealing with in Hollywood. James is living that #blessed life and got to see a screening of Thor: Ragnorok. He literally had to use some mind trips to expand time to make it in time. He says it's amazing and we all need to rush out to go see it. They also talk about how the NFL keeps fucking up! This time they have Justin Timberlake performing the half time show at the Super Bowl. Why is this a tragedy? You might remember a little thing called "nipplegate". Nnekay and James break it down why this is a mess and a disrespect to Janet Jackson. In James' Korner, he needs help, yet again with side eyeing his heroes. This time it's Kevin Spacey. James' unpacks sexual assault and why Kevin Spacey's coming out is a distraction and how to deal when your hero fails you. In Nnekay's Korner, she is so tried and sick of people taking google for granted and wants to give some tips on how to take research seriously! She talks bias, and how to truly understand what you are reading. Enjoy the episode!

This is a rush edition of Pop Rocket focusing on The Oscars. Guy Branum, Margaret Wappler, Karen Tongson and special guest Chris Schleicher waste no time in dishing on cinema's biggest night. They skip the "all abouts" and jams and get right to the WTF of it all--the best picture debacle, Casey Affleck and Brie Larson, bad hair, bad clapping and Hacksaw Ridge. Plus, we'll get to the bottom of why Margaret Wappler wants to be Taraji P. Henson's eyebrows when she grows up.

Guy Branum explains why he has a problem with standing ovations, and reveals a fact about director Ezra Edelman (OJ Made in America) that blew him away.
Margaret Wappler hearts Natalie Portman's performance in Jackie and, apparently, Taraji P. Henson's eyebrows.
Karen Tongson analyzes the ways Moonlight was successful in moving the lens away from gay white people.
And Chris Schleicher gets all Zapruder film in breaking down the Best Picture fiasco and gives us his theory about Faye Dunaway.

Dive in!
