In episode 49, we ease the tone a little and shoot the shit as we always do. We cover the Weinstein assaults and various others, coffee, alcohol, and what we’ve been up to lately.

In this long-awaited two-part episode, Kushal and Karan discuss the ever-important topic of race in society and films as well as the history of biased movie themes.
**Kushal misquotes an old statistic - The U.K. Is now 12% BAME, not 4%, as revealed by the Race and Diversity Audit 2017 that was released after this episode was recorded. This does not change the framing of the questions asked.
For references, see part two’s description.
Folks, greatest apologies for the lateness of this episode. We should be back on track from here.
This episode, Kushal and Karan talk about women in film. We recount some of the awesome female characters we’ve seen on the small and big screens as well as some of the not-so-good ones.

Dear White People: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5707802/?ref_=nv_sr_1
In this episode, Karan and Kushal discuss Sci-Fi as a genre, as well as films within the genre, including the recently-released Alien Covenant, how Alien changed the genre and the impact that it’s had. A challenge is also issued that could potentially change the course of the way both Kushal and Karan think. The shock!

In this final episode of the year, we got really, really excited about Rogue One, which released in early December. Kushal tells us about the true meaning of Rogue One and how it relates to the canon of Star Wars.
Carrie, you will be greatly missed by us and fans alike. May the Force be with you.
This episode, Karan and Kushal discuss some nonsensical things that occur in films.
Specifically discussed in this show was Civil War, Batman v Superman amongst other things.
Check out the podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.
This month, Karan and Kushal talk and break down Skyfall and try and find out why Karan isn’t a fan. An interesting experiment we’ll no doubt do again with another film. We broke the film down in various parts and analysed its subtext.
We talk briefly about Batman v Superman, what we’ve been watching this month and of course, Star Wars.

I also start to eat biscuits about halfway through the episode. Have a biscuit.

This month’s edition of the Movieville Podcast, me and Kushal discuss marketing for film. Well, not explicitly, but we discuss how some films in recent times have utilised marketing effectively.
In particular, we talk about, at length, about Deadpool, how its marketing could be construed as ‘excessive’, and how it actually *helped* the character [...]
This episode, Karan and Kushal talk about their experience with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Kushal talks a lot about the Star Wars canon and it’s relationship between this new film and the canon. Be aware, THERE ARE **SPOILERS** IN THIS EPISODE.
