This week marks Ify's first official episode as our host, and as an initiation to the show, Drea and Alonso GRILL him on his movie preferences. The gang is also joined by freelance writer and managing editor of Nerds of Color, Laura Sirikul, to discuss the new Beatles-amnesia-rom-com, Yesterday. They answer a question from the 'Who Shotline' about tween friendly queer films. And, as always, staff picks.
In news, the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid gets an Ariel, Marianne Williamson loves Avatar, and Paul Schrader calls Brian De Palma "trite" and "artistically weak."
