The Mandate: Episode 11 – IT (2017)

Two movies based on Stephen King novels in a row?! What are we doing here? Oh and dare I mention that original co-host of The Mandate, Josh Alvarez returned to grace us with his presence?! Needless to say this is a pretty special episode of The Mandate, well at least for me it is. I have my former compadre return and I get to sit down to watch and discuss a flick by my favorite author of all time. With that being said, I absolutely hated the fact that an IT remake even existed. Sure the original is a bit dated

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 05: TUFF CHIX

Hello again, friends! On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we’re talking about a couple of our favorite tuff chicks: Tank Girl and Billie Jean Davy. 1995’s Tank Girl was meant to be a revelation. Based on Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett’s work for Deadline magazine (and beyond), this film was supposed to encapsulate all the snark, rebellion, and cheekiness that made the title character who she was, and that readers of the comic rallied around. It was supposed to be a larger-than-life, punk rock force to be reckoned with, and in some ways was successful in that. But
