Kriss, Brandon and Ro review On the Basis of Sex, the film starring Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg and is supposed to show her struggle for equal rights on her way to becoming a Supreme Court Justice. Instead we get a shell of a film that doesn't leave up to the legacy of Justice Ginsburg. This film feels like it was made by someone who didn't watch RBG (The documentary on Ginburg) and then didn't bother to watch any TV shows or movies that dealt with court cases. Legally Blonde does a better job with its climax court case than On the Basis of Sex does. This film is a let down on so many levels and is easily forgettable.

Kriss, Brandon, Ro and Joi review Vice and talk about why they actually loved this film when so many seem to hate it. Christian Bale does a terrifyingly great job of becoming Dick Cheney. And this film takes the seriousness of what Cheney and Republicans set in motion decades ago, and puts a tongue-in-cheek spin on it to make sure everyone looks horrible. This is a film where the villain wins. We know this because Dick Cheney is still out and about in the world today. But it's important to remember that there's a straight line to Trump from when Dick Cheney decided he was going to become a republican. This film will having you laughing one minute only to suddenly sober up when you realize that what you're laughing at, actually happened. Some will say we didn't need this film. But we think it's important to remember that republicans like Dick Cheney are loyal to only one thing: Power.

Even if you're not a fan of period pieces, The Favourite should still be entertaining enough to be one of your favorite watches this year. The three main actresses Olivia Coleman (Queen Ann), Rachel Weiz (Lady Sarah) and Emma Stone (Abigail) are absolutely fantastic in this film. They're perfectly cast for the roles they play and we can't see how anyone else would fit. If you're still feeling a bit burned by Emma Stone & La La Land (we go on a bit of a tangent about that film), rest assured she's back to the Emma we love. This film also has a Nicholas Hoult sighting and he's also as good as always. 

Listen as Kriss, Brandon, Ro and Joi talk about what they loved about this film. You're definitely going to want to check it out.

We took a little bit longer of a break than intended but we're back to discuss the last two episodes of The Gifted Season 2 going into the mid-season break. As always, we love this show. It does a fantastic job of not only accurately depicting the themes of the X-Men but also tying in relevance to the world today. 

We have fun reviewing these two episodes. Here are some of the things we discussed:

  • Noah and Andy learn that puberty sucks and your dick is not your friend
  • Was Rebecca always crazy or was she made crazy because of the betrayal of her parents and being locked up?
  • Turning perfectly made pancakes inside out to eat them (with no syrup) is the sure sign of a terrorist
  • The Mutant Underground is falling apart
  • Shanna's Mutant-ships are falling apart as well
  • and plenty more!

Listen to this review and let us know what you think of The Gifted Season 2 so far!
