Rarely do I have time to see romantic dramas and comedies among the other genres I prefer to watch let alone ones that involve young adult and teenage stars or geared towards that demographic. I think The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Me Before You were the last sort of young adult drama I watched. Which I thought were alright movies. Mainly because of the cast. Movies like The Fault in our Stars, PaperTown, That Spectacular Now, The Longest Ride,Etc. are ones that I didn’t get to see yet. Now you have another young adult teen drama usually adapted from a best seller novel is Everything, Everything.
This film is based on a young adult novel from author Nicola Yoon. It’s a story of a young girl who is on the edge of becoming 18 who up till now has been living and confined in her home her entire life. She suffers a rare disease that causes her to get sick very easily so she never goes outside. She then finds reason to want more than just her view outside her window when a new boy moves in next door and the two form a bond that awakens something in her to want something beyond the walls of her home.
For the latest episode we decided to devote the whole episode to the movie Get Out which is a phenomenon right now and could potential be the best horror movie of 2017 if not years.
Get Out was more than just a horror movie. It was a movie that made self aware of the micro racism that exist in our world today and decided to shed light on what African Americans go through or any people of color for that matter.
The movie also had the ability to make us laugh as well as scare us throughout the whole movie. The script is well written and as a horror movie drives people to have conversations about a topic that makes most people very uncomfortable. You can read more about my initial reaction with my review of Get Out.
Along with my buddy and co-host of our podcast “Bitch, I Ain’t Scared” have a listen to our thoughts on the film and to talk more deeply about the reactions, the emotions, and thoughts of the film and how brilliant this movie is.
Thank you all for reading and listening.

Still on a high from the smart and clever 21 Jump Street & 22 Jump Street. The trailer to Seth Gordon’s Baywatch gave the impression that the duo of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zach Efron would bring the same chemistry and hilarity as Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill brought to the screen. Sadly, that same magic on adapting the beloved over the top series Baywatch TV Series fell short of becoming a possible franchise. I really wanted this movie to work.
I can’t believe that its been 5 yrs since the last movie from the alien series. That abomination of a movie Prometheus was released back in 2012 and Michael Fassbender hasn’t aged a bit. I guess you can say the writers and Director Ridley Scott wanted to take their time to make the next installment done right. After watching Covenant, they would have achieved that goal had they gone off course just a little bit. Unfortunately, they decide to give the same ol’ same ol’ with updated special effects and more blood. I guess the saying goes; “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. If only they knew that it’s broken.
Back in 1994 I came across this underrated gem of a movie starring Kevin Spacey. I didn’t know much about Kevin Spacey except for his role in The Ref with his brilliant brutal, and honest performance I thought what a perfect role for him to play a boss from hell. You may remember him as the evil boss from Horrible Bosses but you haven’t seen evil till you have seen him antagonize his new assistant in the movie Swimming With Sharks. Hysterical movie along with some thrilling suspense mixed in makes this movie worth the watch and for anyone who has ever worked for someone who was just a jerk, this movie is for you.

Writer: George Huang
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Frank Whaley, Michelle Forbes, and Benicio Del Toro
