I Do Movies Badly: Ma
Ma is neither great nor terrible, though its quality would certainly lean more towards the latter if not for the casting of and rewriting for Octavia Spencer, whose portrayal of a character not written to be African-American lends a subtext of tokenism and how victimization perpetuates victimization.
After a discussion of the film, some news on the direction of the podcast for the remainder of the year (SPOILERS: it’s horror).

You’ve gone right from People Under the Stairs to this, without a “Get Out” post here at BP.
It’s now at http://battleshippretension.com/i-do-movies-badly-get-out/
The audio is still failing to embed at BP, instead just displaying a lot of html code as if it were text in a paragraph tag. I typically go to the podbean site to listen to them first anyway, since they appear with an unpredictable delay later at BP.
