    House of Lee - 180 - Do the Right Thing

    House of Lee - 180 - Do the Right Thing

    "Do the Right Thing" is a cultural touchstone that remains as relevant today as it was upon its release. Its portrayal of racial tensions, systemic injustice, and the power of community is both a reflection of its time and a prescient commentary on contemporary issues. Spike Lee’s ability to provoke thought and conversation through his art makes "Do the Right Thing" a vital piece of American cinema.

    House of Baird - 179 - Star Trek: Nemesis

    House of Baird - 179 - Star Trek: Nemesis

    Director Stuart Baird attempts to navigate the complex waters of Star Trek lore, bringing a darker tone to the franchise. The thematic exploration of identity, through the lens of Picard and his clone, offers a compelling study of nature versus nurture. However, the execution falls short of its ambitious premise.

    House of Baird - 178 - US Marshals

    “U.S. Marshals” may not surpass its predecessor, but it still offers solid entertainment, especially for fans of action thrillers. While it lacks Harrison Ford’s star power, Tommy Lee Jones holds the film together with his compelling portrayal of Sam Gerard

Amazingly Fun

UPDATING MY REVIEW SINCE I WROTE THE FIRST ONE THREE YEARS AGO WHEN IT WAS JUST FOCUSED ON DAVID FINCHER:

The show’s great. It’s equal parts funny, informed, informative, and spirited. The chemistry between the hosts is terrific. I usually start listening while applying my first regimen of moisturizer in the morning, which usually takes about an hour. I’ll then wrap up listening to the podcast while I boil some peanuts nd then throw them out because boiled peanuts are one of the grossest things ever invented. Thank goodness this podcast keeps me rooted in anything but boiled peanuts.

A great informative, entertaining listen

I have loved this podcast’s tone. The hosts are engaging and their research/discussions are the right mix of deep dive and entertaining. Keep up the great work!

Maybe learn actors names?

It’s 2023 and you don’t know how to pronounce Saorsie Ronan or Lea Seydoux, but you can complain about aspect ratio for an hour? A couple dumb bros with nothing interesting to say. This is a pretty worthless podcast in an over saturated field.
