Episode 92 finds us heralding the return of Lupe Fiasco.

"Drogas Wave" is his seventh album, and marks a return to form for the Chi-Town native. A sprawling epic double LP, it has a deep concept and demands your undivided attention.

Episode 91 finds us heralding the return of Spike Lee.

"BlacKkKlansman" seems to have hit the mark, so Rochard and Jesal discuss the film. It prompts many tangents and avenues, proving to be a fascinating launchpad for current issues.

Episode 90 finds us doubling up on some kick-ass action.

First up, it's "Mission Impossible: Fallout" where Jesal keeps calling the lead character "Ethan Hawke" continuously (sorry). It's one of the blockbuster highlights this year, and prompts some interesting conversation on CGI vs "real stunts."

Then, we contrast it with a film recommended by Twitter and many a Comments section: Indonesian action flick, "The Raid". Jesal was oblivious to it, and finally catches up with Rochard.

Episode 89 finds us quenched by the 20th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

It's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" time!

It took ages to get this review up, because the World Cup delayed the UK release by 6 weeks. Better late than never.

There is plenty to cover as we dive into the main characters, their performances and the importance of this film within the entire MCU itself. We also look ahead to 2019.

There really is so much to discuss, and since Rochard is a Marvel expert - well, you've come to the right place, friend.

Episode 87 is all about Eminem's surprise new album "Kamikaze" (2018).

In Episode 77, we discuss recent horror film "Hereditary" (which has made quite the splash).

Critics are raving about it (with it currently sitting at 90%) - yet audiences have slapped a D+ rating...

So... Who is right?

Is it frightening or just plain frightful?

DING DING!

Episode 76 finds us embroiled in the rap beef between Drake and Pusha T.

From "Infrared" to "Duppy" and "The Story of Adidon" to goodness knows what comes next... Things have gotten nasty between them since "Daytona" dropped.

Episode 75 finds us highlighting a recent album by a wonderful artist, Royce da 5'9".

"Book of Ryan" is Royce's seventh album - ignoring his work with Bad Meets Evil, Slaughterhouse and DJ Premier - and quite possibly his finest album to date.

We reflect upon aspects of his entire career, and Rochard explains why this is his favourite album of 2018 thus far!

"Dirty Computer" is Janelle Monae's third album, and the first to break away from her Cindi Mayweather narrative. (Check out Episode 28 for more on her).

"Isolation" is the debut from Kali Uchis, and is getting rave reviews. Is it worth the hype?

Episode 73 finds us quenched by the 19th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

It's "Avenger: Infinity War" time!

We have seen the film 5 times between us, so have a pretty good handle on things.

It's episode 71 and seriously, stop eating that popcorn... We've just watched "A Quiet Place" and what an experience.

We discuss the brand new horror film that is taking the world by storm. It features real-life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinksi as a married couple with a few kids in a world where they can't make a lot of noise without serious repercussions. (Krasinski also directed & co-wrote the film).

It's a fascinating concept merging screams, silence and family together into a heady mix.

And congratulations on her pregnancy!

Episode 69 sees us tackling a brand new film directed by septuagenarian Steven Spielberg.

"Ready Player One" is based on the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline. Jesal has already read the book; Rochard has not, so he viewed the film with fresh eyes.

There is plenty to cover as we dive into the main characters, their performances, gamer culture, film vs CGI, how Art3mis pulled her hamstring and life in 2045.
