Vince and Len introduce their own 'criterion' series of films for special presentation under their heading of THE OBSIDIAN COLLECTION but not before Ariell Johnson and Vince share a 'Sho-Nuff' lovefest.
EXPLICIT CONTENT - Vince sits in on a phone conversation Len has with TONY 'Candyman' TODD about Oscar Micheaux, Jack Johnson, The Candyman that could have been, New England vs Philly and so much more in this no-holds-barred (or four-letter words)convo you will not believe.
Vince and Len moderate a free-wheeling talkback at a special screening of Boots Riley's SORRY TO BOTHER YOU at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Special thanks to Jacob Mazer and BMFI for the invite.
Vince and Len look back at their very first episode of The Mission and redefine what a Black Film is and isn't and chart the course forward for the 99-episodes-old podcast.
As promised and more! Presenting The Battribble's full interview with NICHELLE NICHOLS, on her legendary role in Star Trek as Lt. Uhura, dancing with Count Basie, letting loose in Truck Turner and her memories of the late Leonard Nimoy. Recorded April 2015 at The Great Philadelphia Comic-Con.
The Men of Micheaux have fun with the audience and Spike Lee's SCHOOL DAZE, playing trivia games and dishing out prizes at their special Philly Podcast Festival show.
There are some problematic issues bubbling to the surface with the recent release of Marvel's IRON FIST to Netflix and the live action adaptation of the historic anime GHOST IN THE SHELL and Vince and Len trace them to their 70s source in the comic book world. Chill with us inside THE BINGE LOUNGE.
The Men get warm and comfy with SIMONE MISSICK of Netflix & Marvell's Luke Cage for a freewheeling energetic chat about Deltas, sorrow, Detroit Love (Hey Crown!), Aretha shade, pork, minks at the laundromat and much much more including SIMONE MISSICK JOINS THE TRIBBLE NATION! Plus, Len discovers CARMEN RODGERS!
The Men on the Mission welcome AISHA HARRIS of Slate.com to talk about their intriguing list of the 50 Greatest Films by Back Directors, a master class of the human experience as envisioned by some of the industry's most innovative and under-appreciated auteurs. The order or even the number isn't the thing (spoiler: DO THE RIGHT THING is #1) so much as the story of the process and its revelations. Check out the full story: THE BLACK FILM CANON
We were supposed to review Spike Lee's GIRL 6 this week but it's not available online anywhere. Hard copies are pretty scarce too. Seems reasonably reasonable to Len but Vince is quite put off by the dilemma and would like to share his put-off'ness' with you.
