    80. Top Gun, Top Gun: Maverick

    In this episode Rosa and Catherine are excited to introduce a new segment to the podcast - retro reviews from films that don't quite fit the normal Latinx Lens programming but have impacted their unique film lens. And what better way to introduce this than a double feature of an oldie, but goodie, "Top Gun" and the hotly anticipated sequel, "Top Gun: Maverick."

Love Rosa and Cat

One of my favorite podcasts! Love Rosa and Cat’s perspectives and their passion for film. Two Latinas talking movies is a breath of fresh air

Compelling work from a great group!

Latinx Lens makes me feel closer to my own Hispanic heritage! So warm, so needed. But also, they always offer refreshing takes on movies

Important Voices

Two things we could use a lot more of in the film community are the opinions of women and of underrepresented groups. Latinx Lens fills both of these voids with two hosts bringing their passion for movies and unique perspectives for all of us to enjoy. While I think it’s natural to want to hear their thoughts on films that depict their heritage, I hope listeners will understand the value of these ladies’ breakdown of film across all genres and of all backgrounds.
