This week we learn that Freeland is basically what happens when the government doesn't get checked about the Tuskegee Experiments.  Jefferson and Gambi break up, Anissa trains and saves her father, and Jennifer's powers finally manifest in the lamest way imaginable.

Gambi tells a believable story, but we aren't sure if it is true or revisionist history.  Also, Latavius comes back and gives us the refresh to the series we needed with his conversations with LaWanda and the hilarious reactions of the people around him to those conversations.   We also discuss the DCEU's most recent announcement...although we don't hedge bets on how long that news will be accurate cause...well, it IS the DCEU (where are we with that Flash movie again?)

Kriss & Phenom review the movie adaptation of a video game, Tomb Raider. Before we get into the meat of the review of this movie, we discuss the current state of films based off video games and just how terrible they are. It's really really bad. Thankfully, Tomb Raider is a huge step in the right direction. Yes it's flawed and has issues. It takes way too long to get into actual Tomb Raider-type things but it's clearly an origin film that's trying to reintroduce the character of Lara Croft to the general audiences.

We also end with a discussion on why its important for film critics to take into account the audience of the film and why sometimes it's okay to not review a film. Also why discussions about films can give a better view of how good a film is versus just reading a quickly put together written review.
