There’s a heated discussion over which fizzy water beverages are best, and the panelists are granted the power to kill their most-detested movie franchises. For one panelist, the force is not with her.

The Song That Changed My Life: Composer Ludwig Göransson

Ludwig Göransson is both a composer and producer. He was born in Sweden, moved to the States in 2007, and started working in TV shows and movies. One of his first shows was Community. It was actually on the set of Community where he met Donald Glover. Ludwig's been the principal producer on all of Glover's Childish Gambino records.

He's scored some pretty big films, too: Fruitvale Station, Creed, Venom and Black Panther.

The music he wrote for Black Panther is up for the Academy Award for Best Original Score at this year's Oscars. Tune in Sunday, February 24 to find out if he wins.

Also, Ludwig received several Grammy awards this past weekend for his work on the Childish Gambino song This Is America - including Best Record. Congrats to Ludwig and Donald!

What song that changed his life? Enter Sandman by Metallica.

We start this episode off with a round up of all things 2018. Can you even believe it?!?!? Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians came out, the Olympics happened- this year has been a whirlwind! We got the wind knocked out of in 2017 and we persevered in 2018. We kicked our asses into gear and plan to continued to so in 2019. Nnekay and James share their hopes and dreams for the next year. With a little detour into why mud baths are annoying and James' trip to the Van Jones' Show. In the Korners- we have our two favorite from the past year: Nnekay's korner is from Episode 140 and is all about the epidemic plaguing our country: Black Maternal Mortality. James' Korner is from Episode 124 and is about Black Queens (four specifically)... remember Queen Candice!? Also a lot of questionable pronunciations.

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.

This week you better have your eyes lubricated because we are side eyeing EVERYTHANG- from California and it's horrible history of the genocide of Indigenous People, to a certain celebrity who just keeps fucking up! But before we get to the korners James is super excited about A Star Is Born, and Nnekay joins in on the the questionable reason as to why we even need another Lion King, is this one even "live action"? The duo also talk about when to have tough conversations with people- James gives examples and Nnekay gives more examples as to why the many tiny mistreatment of black women in the medical field could lead to Black Maternal Mortality. Let's get to it!

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
