Hey BB's:

#Spoilers for previous seasons; #NoSpoilers for current season!

Are you a fan of AMC's "The Walking Dead?" Do you devour the Robert Kirkman graphic novels? Are you hungry for zombie dramas? Does your brain....er, crave entertainment? Then you're in the right place! At Beauty and the Bitch, we LOVE "The Walking Dead". Like. We love it. Mic even likes Carl (who, admittedly, has even grown on me!).

However, as a fan of "The Walking Dead", you have to endure a lot of shit. And cliff hangers. And character deaths. And plot twists. And logical fallacies. And a whole lot more, BUT....we think it's still worth it!

We are coming up on a pivotal return, after a midseason finale that has left everything uncertain. Catch our predicitons for Season 8 Pt. 2, future predictions, our feelings on past season arc's, which characters are our 'ride or die's', and everything in between about this magical land of gloom and doom!

Hey BB's:

Today we are joined by our super smart film buff friend- Dallas! Dallas takes us through the intricate weavings of film maker Ryan Coogler's career (and why he SO deserves the props he's getting!), along with some jokes, Michael B. Jordan gossips, miscellaneous musings and general rantings. 

We explore why it's so powerful to (finally) have a super hero of color in the main role, and how gorgeous everyone in this film is. Dare we say, it sounds perfect? WE DARE. So much to look forward to with this action packed film hitting theaters THIS WEEKEND!

Be sure to check back in next week, with more pop-culture musings.

We love you BB's!

Hey BB's:
As Promised, here is part 2 in the unnecessary 3-part episode series covering "The Hobbit" (looking at you Peter Jackson). We dive in to the action packed, song-ful, fictional-love fueled, Smaug-tastic episode of our adventure. 

We finally get to see Benedict Cumberswizzle in all his glory as Smaug, and see Martin Freeman come more into Bilbo than ever before. We also face the controversial love story of Tauriel and Fili: where do you stand on this invented melo-drama (we're actually kinda there for it!).

Not to be missed is (OF COURSE) the shade we are serving on a silver platter....and now I'm hungry. What's for second breakfast???

I DIGRESS.

Thanks for tuning in, and we have the conclusion on the horizon! Until then- we love you BB's!

BB's: Times run out, the Order has suffered losses, and the Dark Lord has ceased to be vanquished. IF ONLY WE HAD TWO MORE BOOKS TO WRAP UP THIS STORY....oh....wait. NVM! JKJKJK! (Rowling that is).

But, seriously, we're here to bring you Part 2 of our Order of the Phoenix talk, and: WE COMING FOR YOU CHO CHANG. (among other casualties)

Book 5 brings us ever closer to the conclusion of our re-read/re-watch/re-visit/existential Wizarding questions: so join us! We've got gabs, goofs, and g-wine.....we drank wine. BUT, we actually tackle some pretty deep Harry Potter biz! We are joined again by the lovely Ashley Guerra. Catch up on the Potter-mani before episodes covering 6 & 7 hit your feed!

Jan 23, 2018

BB's: What if we created a secret organization of Wizards, bent on squashing the Dark Lord, and hanging out for quick quips and battles of wits? OH, WELL I GUESS THAT WOULD BE COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT CUZ IT'S ALREADY BEEN DONE.

OKAY, J.K. ROWLING. OKAY.

But, seriously, we're here to cover the finer nuances of this oft proclaimed "least favorite" read in the  Harry Potter verse:  The Order of the Phoenix.

Book 5 brings us ever closer to the conclusion of our re-read/re-watch/re-visit/existential Wizarding questions: so join us! We take a deep dive into character histories (looking at you Arabella Figg), we look at what really matters (Is Hermione rich?) and we fuel our shady-chat with love and wine (one in the same, amiright?)

 

Part 2 will be out next week!

Jan 15, 2018

BB's: Bear with us on this UNNECCESARY THREE PART ENDEAVOR TO COVER THE HOBBIT. That's right, we're looking at you Peter Jackson.  After his magicial wonderland that was The Lord of the Rings, ole Pete decided that he wanted to take the 95,456 words of The Hobbit and pair them with a little bit of nonsense, made up things/characters, and bits from The Lost Tales + The Silmarillion - and turn it into a trilogy!

We can not tell you why. What we can tell you, is that we have SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT IT. Some good, some bad, some neutral, and....some non-sequeters (obvi). Check in with us, and let us know how you feel about these film adaptations too/the legend that is JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit.

Sep 25, 2017

For a movie that's widely considered one of the best science fiction movies of all time, we're pretty unimpressed with Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. Somehow it was less thrilling and more sloppy than we remembered (but, you know, when would we ever judge someone for being boring and sloppy?).

This is a big episode for us because we're hosting Joe, our dear friend and first every guest. Together the three of us struggle through big, heady topics like what it means to be human, the impending worldwide apocalypse, predictions for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 starring Ryan Gosling, and the undeniable power of Harrison Ford's roguish charm.

Discussion includes:

**the one billion different versions of the movie **Ridley Scott's true and (so far) false prophecies **a Secret History of the term "Blade Runner" **animals as status symbols **the infamous and confusing unicorn scene and how it's connected to Deckard's controversial humanity **is this sequel even necessary? Is a sequel ever necessary? **science fiction movies to watch after (or instead of) Blade Runner **Scientists' favorite science fiction movies of all time **Morgan and Joe's dislike of Forrest Whitaker (how could they?!)

And a very futuristic game corner that includes: "Marry, Fuck, Retire,"  "This, That or the Other," "Fill in the Void (-Kamph)." 

Plugs:

Binge (at least a few seasons of) Grand Designs on Netflix.

Listen to Joe's other fun podcasts (about video games and cinema) at oneofus.net and rageselect.com.

We're assuming you're caught up on Game of Thrones, but if you haven't seen Season 7 yet, get! On! It! It's an amazing season.

In this episode Mic is nice to Morgan because she deserves it. We discuss Emmy predictions and take a deep dive into heavy-hitters like Westworld, Saturday Night Live, Mr. Robot, Stranger Things, Master of None, and The Handmaid's Tale. We have opinions...and they might be dumb...but we're sticking to them.

PLUGS:

This week we're covering 3 of the faces of IT: Stephen King's novel, 1990's made-for-TV movie and the 2017 blockbuster remake. Ooooh, it looks scary! Conversation includes:

* The sad story of Jonathan Brandis
* Memory, prosperity and lighthouse keepers

* Female and queer representation in the story
* King's softer side: love poetry!

And a terrifying Games Corner: "1,2,3, Not IT," "Coulrophobia," and "King, King or King?"

PLUGS:

Sometimes you need a movie to just pick you up and carry you away, for a little while, from your reality. It’s a brutal world out there, BBs, and there’s no shame in needing to take a lil break.

Close your eyes and let our dulcet tones lead you deeper into Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. Our conversation includes:

* Teen Girl Squad (her name is “What’s Her Face”)
 vacation drinks: pina colada vs. long island vs. coconut milk
*How I Met Your Mother
*Full House/Fuller House
*
Top 5 Miyazaki Movies
*the unique deliciousness of anime food
*a Secret History of No-Face
*”I’M NOT DRUNK, I’M JUST GOOD-LOOKING.”
*Do you recognize the name Deveigh Chase? You should.
*Yubaba + Professor Slughorn = ugliest Slytherin babies ever
*the movie as “gateway drug” to anime, as comment on child prostitution, as coming-of-age story, as environmental sermon
*Japanese urban legends
All Fantasy Everything
*2nd Opinions, games and more (AND MORE)!

Thanks for listening, y’all!
