Shanea Williams Paralysis, Maria Wilson’s Venefica, and Bree Newsome’s Wake. First and foremost we want to give a shoutout to our sponsors over at Lehigh

The Mandate: Episode 17 – We saw Black Panther. Wakanda Forever!

So it must be noted, I have seen this film twice since we recorded this episode and with each screening my thoughts on the film became more thought out and a bit deeper. However, the rules of The Mandate are these are the immediate post-screening thoughts when they are at their absolute rawest. With that, I’m sure you’ve read the title and know that you are pouncing into our Black Panther episode of The Mandate. Once again I’m joined by my friend, Brian Carola, who I’m not even bothering tagging at this point as we’ve seen every MCU film together

The Mandate: Episode 16 – Well this is awkward… 50 Shades Freed & The Commuter

    Hello people of the internet. I have returned to grace your ears with another episode of The Mandate. Sometimes you have plans and those plans get messed up. Then you are forced to take what you can get in terms of movies available for screenings. This is where I have found myself with the latest two parts of this new episode.   First up, I lured my friend, and wife of previous guest (see: Bladerunner episode), Melanie Tunaitis, to see the newest and last installment of the 50 Shades series, 50 Shades Freed. The 50 Shades phenomenon is

Once winter sets its teeth in, the days grow shorter but time draws longer, so that spring and warmth and life seem like distant things. For one cursed crew in the city beneath the black sun, there’s something else loose in the cold. Something inhuman, something hungry, and something that will not

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 09: Love and Chaos in L.A.

Greetings and salutations, friends and lovers! On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we’ve got a fine double feature of off-beat romance, just in time for Valentine’s Day. First on deck is 1985’s Into The Night, starring Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer, and directed by John Landis. It’s a strange movie that has trouble really knowing what it is or what it’s supposed to be, but it’s packed with enough quirk to remain relevant (even if it is among the least talked-about of Landis’ films). In the episode, we get into whether or not we’re supposed to believe this
