SSNPod #231 | Anything You Kendu, I Can Do Better (feat. Alasha) | #saysomethingnew

Back for 2018, the Say Something Nice Podcast – and special guest Alasha – are ringing in the New Year right with more news, reviews and witty repartee on everything happened while we were on break. We have reviews of the Will Smith Netflix film “Bright,” Dwayne Johnson & Kevin Hart’s “Jumanji” sequel, and a spoiler review of Pixar’s “Coco.” In addition, we discuss Mary J. Blige getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (and ex-husband Kendu Issacs not being invited), Justin Timberlake rebranding as a white man, and Kendrick Lamar and SZA presenting the lead single from the upcoming “Black Panther” soundtrack. Finally, we have updates on the winter/spring TV lineup from the TCA conferences, and – *sigh* – Disney filling their “Aladdin” remake full of extras in brownface.
