Ep. 405: Red Tails (2012)

Things get back to normal this week on the GenreCast as we take a look at the 2012 historical war piece Red Tails. This LucasFilm production tells the story of the Tuskegee Air Men in World War II. Boasting an all-star cast of Black actors, the movie hits the skies with momentum, but can it soar or does it backfire? We discuss war movies and race, planes and evolving technology, the old practical vs CGI debate, and much more in this week's episode!
