For the final traditional episode of That Wannabe Film Class, our crew is joined by Prince Jackson and Cam Hawkins to discuss Moonlight and how minority representation is still so lacking in both Hollywood and the new media space we occupy.
Ben sits down with filmmaker Terence Johnson to discuss Fruitvale Station. The two have a personal conversation on their shared experience growing up in the East Bay alongside how Hollywood represents Black experiences and ways the industry can improve.
We’re back! Ben and Chloe are joined by Emmett Watkins Jr. and Bryce Cross and for the first ep. in our Black Lives Matter month. The team talks Blindspotting, diving into both the movie’s excellent comedy and the serious topic at its heart. This is one you won’t want to miss!
We take a step back from movie talk to focus on the important Black Lives Matter movement. The team discusses available resources, how you can contribute to the fight, and our responsibility as people with white privilege.
Ben and Chloe committed the greatest sacrifice known to film: they watched The Last Airbender. They did it for their art, but honestly, they also did it as an excuse to talk about the tv show at length.
There are two very important things Ben wants you to know about Sing Street. One is that it’s definitely a musical. Two, and most importantly, is that it also just so happens to be the best movie ever made.
Sure you could tune into this week’s episode to hear how much we like the movie’s use of visuals, music, and narrative setup to build mystery and tension. BUT you can also tune in for Ben’s continual insulting of Stanley Kubrick and Chloe endlessly lusting after Jake Gyllenhaal. Yeah, we know what the people want.
Women. They’re little. Well only in flashbacks. WELL not even in those really because they’re still portrayed by adult actresses. Whatever, the point is Ben thinks this is one of the best movies ever made and he WILL talk your ear off about it.
