E161 | MisEducation (series)

Miseducation takes us into the life of Mbali Hadebe, the daughter of corrupt politician Brenda Hadebe, who faced accusations of stealing grant money. The series begins with Mbali’s extravagant party, where every action she takes becomes a source of controversy, leading to her becoming a subject of mockery and the target of social media memes. Raised in the shadow of her mother’s scandalous image, Mbali’s formative years were filled with public scrutiny and criticism. The weight of it all became too much for her to bear, which compelled Mbali to break into tears and finally drift away from her friends. In an urge to escape the spotlight and return to normalcy, she makes a life-altering decision to relocate to Makhanda, enrolling at Grahamstown University. It’s here that she crosses paths with Sivu Levin, the charming student who happens to be the university rowing champion and a candidate for SRC president. Their encounter ignites a love story that blossoms despite the difficulties of university and politics and becomes the core of Miseducation. This romantic tale takes center stage, showing how love can heal and change lives, even in difficult times. Miseducation is a lighthearted drama that delves into the complex world of university life and uncovers issues that are relevant to today’s audience. It shines a light on problems like bullying, exclusion, and the complicated world of student politics at Grahamstown University. Through the story of Mbali Hadebe, the series vividly shows the challenges of fame and the difficulties of living under the shadow of a tarnished political legacy. As Mbali becomes more distant from her mother, she takes a drastic turn in her efforts to maintain her relationship with Sivu Levin, which leads her into morally gray areas that mirror her mother’s actions. Amidst all the chaos, some unexpected friendships develop, especially with Sivu’s adoptive sister, Natalie, who provides support and a sense of belonging. The inclusion of Jay, a character of South Asian descent playing a homosexual role, demonstrates the show’s commitment to diversity and its fearless exploration of the issue of homophobia. Miseducation doesn’t shy away from tackling these subjects, which serves as a mirror to the difficulties of modern student life. Miseducation goes beyond the typical romantic comedy-drama by boldly addressing prevalent issues in schools and colleges, including unequal treatment between wealthy and less privileged students, as well as the harmful tradition of ragging. In addition to its central love story, the show sheds light on the often-overlooked politics on university campuses, shining a spotlight on these important matters. The character Sivu Levin is at the center of this academic struggle. He faces a tough choice: should he stick to his privileged, bullying white classmates, or should he support the students who are being mistreated by them? This is a big moral dilemma, and it shows the difficulty of doing what’s right when faced with injustice. As student elections approach, another strong candidate, Caesar, becomes Sivu’s main competition. Caesar’s involvement in an attack on Jay highlights the need for serious action against intolerance and violence in college life. The promising cast, helmed by Buntu Petse, who plays Mbali Hadebe, and Lunga Shabalala, who plays Sivu Levin, do a fantastic job, making their roles feel real and genuine. Besides the protagonists, we get to see a diverse cast, including Prev Reddy as a South Asian student, Jay Naidoo, and Micaela Tucker as Natalie Levin, who did an absolutely amazing job in the show, portraying a beautiful bonding between these characters. Through these diverse character journeys, “Miseducation” captures the feeling of college life, mixing in elements of romance and humor. It shows the contrast between the excitement of youth and the serious problems that students face. In the end, it’s a show that not only entertains but also makes you think...

E159 | One Piece (series)

This is by far the best Live adaptation of an animation series Netflix has ever done I doubt they will ever do anything of this magnitude ever again. I loved every waking second of it. And I love the fact that they did not stray away from the Manga or the anime itself. They went seen for scene 8 glorious episodes, esthetics. The cinematography, everything was great from costume casting the acting the set. Oh, my God, those sets were phenomenal and huge. This must have caused Netflix of fortune. And it was worth every penny. I'm looking forward to several more seasons. Hopefully, they do that.

E157 | UNTOLD Jake Paul: The Problem Child (documentary)

Jake Joseph Paul, born in 1997, the 17th of January, was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and grow up in Westlake, with his older brother Logan( who is also, an entertainer. Who Is Jake Paul, a Disney child actor, a YouTube/internet prankster, social media icon, businessman, and a renowned boxer? An idiot, A lucky prick, a problem child, a bully, a loser, the worst Paul, an entertainer at heart, a menace to society, a bad boy, a future legend and hall famer in my books, heck whatever you think or however you feel about Jake, you can not deny the fact that this guy is driven, determined, hardworking, passionate, ambitious, this man Is a fighter, a warrior, 7– 1 professional boxing record, 7 wins; 4 knockouts, 3 decisions and one loss. granted he fought a lot of washed-up M.M.A. fighters and a bunch of YouTubers, during his fighting career so far but I look at it with the eyes of a contact sports lover. Granted at first I genuinely thought the fighters were ridged but after watching several of the fights and the untold documentary, I can honestly say his the real deal. A fighter…the kid can box. I don’t know why I am calling him to kid his pretty much my age. • AnEdon Gib • Nate Robinson (NBA player) • Ben Askren (ufc fighter) • Tyron Woodley (had 2 fights with him) • Anderson Silva (ufc former champion) • Tommy Fury But he had that fight in Saudia Arabia with Tommy fury, the only dent in his fighting record so far. A fight that went to a decision shows the level of a fighter he is. • Nate Diaz Of course one could say fighting Diaz he went back to his usual tactics of fighting non-professional boxers. But I look at it differently. All these fighters have generated over 125 million us dollars in per-view sales. Making him one of the most if not the most lucrative boxers of all time. He really did save boxing. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Born talentless to a noble family famous for their supernatural abilities, Miyo Saimori is forced into an existence of servitude by her abusive stepmother. Because of her abusive upbringing, Miyo is a timid girl with very low self-esteem, often thinking of herself as a burden to others and letting them order her around. Until her engagement to Kiyoka Kudou, a commander apparently so cold and cruel that his previous would-be brides all fled within three days of their engagements.

E153 | The Ooku The inner chambers (Anime series)

Ōoku: The Inner Chambers is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Fumi Yoshinaga. It was serialized in Hakusensha's manga magazine Melody from June 2004 to December 2020, with its chapters collected in 19 tankōbon volumes. The manga is licensed in North America by Viz Media. NETFLIX MADE AN ANIME SERIES OF THE MANGA. In Edo period Japan (1603 to 1868), a strange new disease called the Redface Pox has begun to prey on the country's men. Within eighty years of the first outbreak, the male population has fallen to a quarter of the total female population. Women have taken on all the roles traditionally granted to men, even that of the Shogun. The men, precious providers of life, are carefully protected and the most beautiful of the men are sent to serve in the Shogun's Inner Chambers. This show was really unique—definitely not your average anime. If you are into Japanese culture and traditions, you'll like this show. If you are looking for your classic Isekai, sorry, this is probably not the right show for you This story takes place in the Edo period where gender roles are reversed and women outnumber men 4 to 1 due to a deadly pandemic called the Redface Pox which only affects young men. Within 80 years one fourth of the men’s population is wiped out, women essentially run the country and men have no choice but to sell themselves in order to be able to make a living. Traditional families are a thing of the past and marriage is considered a luxury only the rich can hope to partake in. The story mainly focuses on the female shogun of Edo castle and the lives of the hundreds of men within it’s inner chamber ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★


E153 - Nimona (movie)

A knight is framed for a crime he didn't commit, and the only person who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona, a shape-shifting teen who might also be a monster he's sworn to kill. I loved Nimona. It is beautiful, fast paced, funny and emotional. The quasi medieval world, with flying cars and subways, is visually a delight to look at. The characters are well developed and wonderfully voiced. Nimona herself is a true original- a quirky, feisty, anti hero. She sets out to cause mayhem but, as we get to know her, we realize she wants acceptance, not the fear she engenders in others because she is a shapeshifter. The developing friendship between her and Lord Balister is genuinely moving. They have both been outcasts but find strength in each other. Nimona is really a movie about being loved even if you are different, which is a timely message during these intolerant times. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★


E152 | iNumber Number: Jozi Gold (movie)

{{Presley Chweneyagae, Noxolo Dlamini, Deon Lotz, Bongile Mantsai, Fana Mokoena, Clementine Mosimane, S'Dumo Mtshali, Tumie Ngumla, Brenda Ngxoli}} In the criminal underworld of Johannesburg, a jaded undercover police officer is tasked with cracking the biggest gold heist in African history that could make or break his career. Parents Need to Know Parents need to know that iNumber Number: Jozi Gold is a 2023 South African action movie in which an undercover cop tasked with stopping a gold heist must choose between justice and the law. Expect action movie violence throughout. A character is stabbed in the throat repeatedly -- blood. Characters are shot and injured and one is attacked by a hyena. A character's fingertip is chopped off with a machete. A character is killed by his head getting crushed by a machine that stamps and creates gold coins. Fighting with guns, rifles, posts, and sticks. Cocaine use. Cigarette smoking. Drinking. Language throughout, including "f--k" and "motherf--ker." Is a sequel to the 2013 movie Avenged -- stands on its own without needing to watch the original to follow along. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, Mythoughts Another SA production on the international platform marred by trying to fit in with Hollywood tendencies & end up giving the mass audience which is African an unoriginal work of art. The storyline is simple & predictive & fast paced to a point we as the audience couldn't get to have connections with any character. That alone created a lot of unrealistic turnouts like how quick trusting occurred There is less background on half the people to a point you wonder why they're even there. Example the cops's wife. The afrikaanse team came of as dumb, can't even open a warehouse, can't even catch thieves inside a Mall ...Lol seriously. Then there is the trio, with which their entire cameo was like something ripped from some Hollywood new age Hollywood robin hoods Running a perfect unrealistic syndicate I'm sorry that's just not African & it bored me to death, the entire acting, bar marshal arts was just cringe. I raise both my hands to the VFX team, they nailed it with the hyena & the gunshots Eventually when credits roll you wonder what was the purpose in this movie. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★


E151 - The mother (movie)

Movie description - While fleeing from dangerous assailants, an assassin comes out of hiding to protect the daughter she left earlier in life. My thoughts - Yet another vanity project for Lopez, this time as an action hero with fur coats, and the same hair and makeup in pretty much every scene, even if the scenes are 12 years apart. This film needed a more versatile actress, one that would lose the long hair locks and have it messed up, one that could handle - and look convincing, with some dirt and scratches on her face, one who can show some facial expressions relevant to each scene, not the constant "ya I'm tough" expressionless look and tone. Next we have a story that took three prolific writers who've written some great films and series in the past, to come up with a monotonous, repetitive, cliched and underwhelming screenplay with bits from many better films in this genre. The poorly paced nearly two-hour runtime felt much longer with many dragged out, unnecessary and predictable scenes. You know exactly what's going to happen, and you waste time watching it happen stretched out for so long, you can just fast-forward and not miss a thing. Top that all off with a director that decided to use a blurred fish-eye lens effect in some scenes, I thought I was having migraine episodes. Had a more convincing actress been cast, it may have made the dull filmmaking a little more bearable, but combined all together, it's not the gift any mom would want for Mother's Day. It's a pass from me, and a very generous 6/10 ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

E149 - Amy Schumer: Emergency Contact (Stand-up comedy special)

Amy Schumer: Emergency Contact Over the years her comedy got quite stale unfortunately. Eventually it seemed (to us) that Amy had left comedy to start a family. We figured good for her. She did very well for herself while in the limelight. Well... She's back.... with a special? I was curious, despite the large amount of distaste she has garnered for herself over the years with some of the biggest names in stand up. I gave it a try. Nothing relatable out of the gates. L. A. Plastic surgery material from a frumpy wanna-be funny mom? Hard pass. I feel like this was specifically for her friends and family, but thought it was good enough to make some cash from. I'm curious if she actually tried the material out more than a couple times outside her friends and family... This was NOT "special" material by any measure. Amy uses the exact same comedy beats that she used years ago. The jokes MIGHT be new, but the same tired delivery was enough to turn me off. I did chuckle a couple of times, but i might have just been attempting to find something funny. ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★


E148 - Extraction 2 (flim)

Back from the brink of death, commando Tyler Rake embarks on a dangerous mission to save a ruthless gangster's imprisoned family Extraction 2: A Riveting Sequel That Amps Up the Action from the first flim., the highly anticipated sequel to the thrilling 2020 film, delivers an adrenaline-pumping experience that leaves audiences on the edge of their seats.

The use of long takes and immersive camerawork adds a sense of realism, making you feel like you're right in the midst of the chaos. Chris Hemsworth delivers a powerful performance as Tyler Rake, effortlessly blending vulnerability and raw physicality.

The chemistry between Hemsworth and young actor Rudhraksh Jaiswal, who plays the kidnapped boy Ovi, is palpable, making their on-screen relationship one of the highlights of the film. The supporting cast also shines, with standout performances from returning actors and exciting new additions. Randeep Hooda brings intensity and complexity to his role as Saju, a conflicted former ally of Rake. The chemistry and rivalry between Hooda and Hemsworth adds another layer of tension to the narrative. Additionally, newcomer Naomi Scott delivers a compelling performance as a mysterious ally, bringing her own charisma to the screen.

Furthermore, the movie's captivating score, composed by Henry Jackman, perfectly complements the on-screen chaos, intensifying the emotional impact of each scene.

Bonus Episode | The strays (movie)



Bonus Episode : My dad the bounty hunter (anime- series)

When a bounty hunter's two kids accidentally hitch a ride into outer space and crash his latest mission, they discover that their dad's job is anything but boring; dodging aliens and laser fights, this family's bonding time goes to the extreme. All THE PLACES: STREAM IT OR SKIP IT? The Gist: Gabriela’s (Ana Serradilla) expression says it all: She’s deeply sad and outrageously pissed. Her father passed away after a cancer battle and her brother is missing the funeral. The ceremony is over and friends and family gather graveside as she says a few words about her dear dad and, finally, Fernando (Mauricio Ochmann) arrives – and that’s when the pissed part of her takes over the sad part. She stops mid-eulogy to attack Fernando, and the scuffle finds them slapping and shoving each other, stumbling and falling over tombstones. Uh huh. Mind you, these people are adults. Not just barely adults, like 19 years old, but 40-something adults who should know better than to act like dopes at their father’s service, but hey, these are Movie People, so who expects them to act rationally? I mean, can’t they just passive-aggressively simmer and let their true feelings curdle in their gut like mature people in real life would do? Cutesy scenes from little Gabo and Fer’s childhood play during the opening credits. It seems they were once inseparable, and they were especially tight after their mother died. They were still schoolchildren when that happened. But that all changed when Fernando took a swanky job with a bank in Singapore and apparently barely looked back. Bitterness settled in for reasons that remain vague, but I think it has something to do with Gabriela feeling stuck at home, working in their father’s auto shop and taking care of him when he fell ill, while Fernando did his own thing and presumably never ever visited. I don’t know if “estranged” is the right word, but their relationship seems to fall on the lower end of the estrangement spectrum. And here they are, in their late father’s home, the house they grew up in, surrounded by all his stuff, and their old stuff. Gabriela gives Fernando the silent treatment. She hits the tequila. After a bit, so does he. Then he dusts off the good ol’ ping pong table and they have a go. The wall between them crumbles. Is there still some lingering resentment? Of course! But at least they’re talking now. And drunk. Quite drunk. It’s in such moments that Movie People do impulsive things. They walk to their pop’s auto garage and there in the back are the motorcycles they had as kids. They’re vintage now, these bikes. And they remember how they once vowed to ride those bikes from here in San Miguel de Allende all the way to Acapulco. They even drew a map and made rules – e.g., they have to take turns doing whatever the other wants to do, the first to get there has to pee in the ocean, etc. – and everything. So it’s the middle of the night and they’re still drunk and they hop on the motorcycles and go, and they don’t bother to pack a toothbrush or a phone charger or anything. There will be detours on the way, at a wine-and-cheese festival so they can wedge bottle caps in their shoes – bottle caps? At a WINE festival? Just go with it, people! – so they can do their old tap-dance routine; at a hippie gathering so they can accidentally take way too many drugs; in Mexico City so old regrets can be addressed, you know, stuff like that. Will the trip yield a well-balanced blend of wacky adventures and soul-searching poignancy? Is the sky blue? Does a chicken like to peck? Does tequila make you stupider? ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
