#185 | 3 Fifths of a Film Review | #saysomethingnew

Are Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic the enemy of the film industry, the friend of the consumer, or both (or neither)? The SSN Crew discusses the possible influence of negative critical reviews on this year’s dismal summer box office returns, as well as reviews of “Queen Sugar”, “Silicon Valley,” the new FX show “Snowfall.” We also discuss casting options for “Green Lantern Corps,” Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park quitting “Hawaii Five-0” because of unequal pay, and how TLC’s Kickstarted final album suffers from a Debra Killings deficit.

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
