Extraction (Feat. Elliott Bornemann)
White People Won't Save You

5d ago
We're certainly not in the MCU anymore. Today we check out what Thor does on his off days...apparently murder a lot of Brown people in 2020's Extraction. Produced by the Russo's (and based off a graphic novel they made) Chris Hemsworth coldy shoots his way through a South Asian country to rescue a drug dealers son and it's exactly as joyless as it sounds. We're joined by the amazing Elliott Bornemann (of the Youtube channel Hakkunah MaChatter) to break it all down. Is there a better movie here without Hemsworth? What is the fascination with yellow washed out skies in these movies? And wha ..read more

The Indian in The Cupboard (Feat. Craig Hale)
White People Won't Save You

We refuse to accept this movie as anything other than a fever dream because WOW! If "this hasn't aged well" was...well, a movie, it would be 1995's The Indian in The Cupboard. Directed by Frank Oz (the man behind Yoda and Ms. Piggy), we've got a lot to say about this one.  And joining us once again is the terrific Craig Hale! Together we break down a very chaotic movie. How the hell does this cupboard work (time travel?) How does it compare to the original book? And what in the world was the intention behind making his best friend South Asian?  Catch Craig on the Decoded Horror ..read more

And IIIIIIIIIIIIIII (deep breath) can't believe Kevin Costner is back again. Yes, this marks the 4th time we've had to talk about this man, this time for the 1992 romantic thriller (?) The Bodyguard.  We're joined again by friend of the show Rhayne Coleman to discuss Whitney Houston's film debut. None of us had seen it since we were young, and it was quite a different experience seeing it in 2023.  We talk what was up with Keven Costner's hair, why they kept letting that Black boy near the water, and who we would cast in a modern remake.  Find Rhayne on Twitter and Instagra ..read more

Guess who's bizzack? Hollywood's favorite super colonizer returns, as we also welcome back Dare Johnson to discuss Disney's Tarzan.  What separates this entry from all the previous ones in the series? How about Disney's decision to just...remove all the Black people from Africa? Also, we discuss the best animated film staring an unlikely actor (Bee Movie anyone), an you know we had to flame Kevin McCarthy's dumb ass.  You can find Dare on Twitter and Instagram @badicaldude!

College Kickboxers

Happy New Year! We're back on our bullshit for 2023 starting the year right with a gift from the Tubi Gods, the 1991 kung-fu film, College Kickboxers.  Look, given the title of the movie, you already know what this one is. Filled with all the tropes, it's Karate Kid with 90% more racism and Power Rangers level fight scenes. And we have by far our favorite villain in a while, the iconic Craig Tanner.  We hope 2023 is treating you right, or at least better than Kevin McCarthy. Tell us what movies you'd like to see us do this year over at @white_pod on Twitter or at whitepeopl ..read more

Happy holidays everyone! We continue our tradition from last year as Jordan's sister Carmen returns to the show to talk the disastrous Netflix Christmas movie, Operation Christmas Drop.  Nothing says holiday romance like the military industrial complex, out of context Gaelic Christmas carols, and a cartoon CGI gecko. We also discuss the real life history of Guam, what the Blackest Christmas song is, and Trump NFT's.  We love you and hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones. Take care of yourselves and stay warm! We'll be back to wrap up the year in Black cul ..read more

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

Fire up that Tarzan pack because we're smoking that Legend of Tarzan on this weeks episode.  Where do you even start with this one? Their idea to modernize and update Tarzan from his racists roots is to...have him end slavery in Africa? And use the real life genocide in the Congo by King Leopold II as a backdrop? And have Samuel L. Jackson portray a real life historical figure who has to *checks notes* convince Tarzan he wasn't going to lick a gorilla's scrotum?  Yeeeaaaahhhhh, this one is on the third level for sure. And as far as rebooting Tarzan, we got thoughts on that too ..read more

M. Night the last racebender? That's right, we're finally talking about the 2010 live action (Avatar) The Last Airbender from the one and only M. Night Shyamalan. Sadly Cameron had to miss out on this masterpiece, but luckily we're joined by cultural critic extraordinaire and author of the forthcoming Forever For the Culture: Notes From the New Black Digital Arts Renaissance, Steven Underwood. Steven and Jordan discuss what the hell went wrong in adapting this beloved animated series. Was it casting white actors as the leads? Was it disregarding the brighter and more fun tone of the ..read more
