Hell is a teenage girl. It's also when a film get's wildly misunderstood by the "boy-run media"... On this episode, we break down 2009's supernatural-horror-black-comedy film, Jennifer's Body!

Avatar: The Last Airbender - Book 2 (Revisited)
Here we are, back again, talking about Avatar! In this episode we revisit Book 2: Earth of the series which is a season full of absolute bangers.

Here is our very long and unanticipated review of Booksmart (2019), Olivia Wilde's directorial debut. This is our second installment of our March podcasts (let's not talk about how late this is) celebrating women. Booksmart is a new and refreshing take on High School comedies with two woke, feminist protagonists, so obviously a perfect choice for our March theme. Also, yes, our Europe trip did get cancelled :(

For March, we wanted to watch films in honor of Irish-American heritage month as well as Women's history month. Our first pick for this month is "Brooklyn" (2015)! Directed by John Crowley and starring our favorite gal, Saoirse Ronan, this film features both a timeless romance and an authentic Irish immigrant story woven through the themes of identity and finding your home.

Within Our Gates
Here is our second and final episode for February/Black History Month. This week we decided to switch it up and watch a silent film,"Within Our Gates" (1920) by Oscar Micheaux, one of the first films by an African American director. "Within Our Gates" was made right after the race riots in 1919 and was a response to "Birth of a Nation" (1915). Micheaux does not hold back on showing what life is truly like for black people in America, so much so that some theaters refused to screen the film because they thought some scenes were too graphic. Check it out if you want a truly unique movie experience!

The Last Black Man in San Francisco
In a new month to month series, we take a look at and discuss films relevant to each month's observance of heritage, diversity and inclusion. In honor of February's Black History Month, we kicked off this series watching the most beautiful film, The Last Black Man in San Francisco. We examine it's endless themes of gentrification, income inequality, racial stereotypes and division, and identity as we continually rave about, again, how beautiful this film is. Seriously, watch it.

Rise of Skywalker
We finally made it to the end . . . but at what cost? In this very very lengthy pod, we delve into the highly anticipated conclusion to the 40 year long Skywalker Saga. Was it satisfying? Was it everything we had ever hoped for? Did it make sense? Of course not! This is Star Wars, and a true Star Wars fan is never happy with any of the movies. Join us on this last bitter sweet adventure to a galaxy a long time ago and far, far away.

The Empire Strikes Back
First, you must unlearn what you've learned. Then take the nearest X-Wing and join us in a tauntaun over in Hoth, somewhere deep down in Dagobah, and high up in a city on a cloud as we talk all the illustrious new characters and places that make Episode V of the Skywalker Saga the most memorable. We talk all the Yoda-ism's, the romance between a Princess and a scruffy-looking nerf herder, and the spoiler heard around the world. We also take a side trip back to Tatooine in our recap of episode 5 of the Mandalorian.

Meanwhile, Obi-Wan goes on a solo detective adventure, while at the cusp of the epic Clone Wars, we ask, where did the Jedi go wrong? We also recap the third episode of Mandalorian and early takes on where the series may venture.
