WakandaCon: Reggie Ponder catches up with Allison Manswell – connecting the Black Panther Movie to lessons we can use in our careers
Everyone is stalking the Black Panther, well rather seeking to talk about it and Reggie Ponder, The Reel Critic, was on The 21st Show talking about the new Marvel film. With so much to talk about, there wasn’t enough time to unpack it all.
I was recently on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Central Time talking about the best movies of 2017
Oh Yeah, the Golden Globes are today and I just cant wait! Matt and I talked a bit about the awards so check out our discussion.
It’s been an odd summer movie season. Typically summer movies are big blockbusters, like superhero movies or sequels of Pirates of the Caribbean. While we did have some superhero movies and one Pirates sequel, we’ve also had more serious movies, like the World War II movie Dunkirk. And there have been several movies with a social message, like An Inconvenient Sequel. We talk to a Reggie Ponder, The Reel Critic about these movies and why it’s been such a different summer.
This sequel to An Inconvenient Truth lives between despair and hope. Despair in that we have surely done damage to this planet and even if people don’t believe the science they are experiencing the dramatic effects. Hope in that we can do something about this issue. Directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk give us a hard pill to swallow yet a prescription for recovery. See what they have to say about the film and what we can do.
I was scheduled to screen the thriller NO GOOD DEED this week but the studio canceled the screening at the last minute. Most times, when a studio cancels or never schedules a screening it is a indication that the film might not be so good. But I think the studio decided to down play the film given all the press about Ray Rice and domestic violence. This is not that farfetched as I have heard women not trilled about seeing their romantic lead Idris Elba trying to inflict harm on a woman. Believe it or not, The NFL, Ray Rice and Hollywood are interesting bedfellows.
