    Assembling the Avengers

    in Movies

    With the new film in theaters it seems like a good idea to analyze the series of steps Marvel took with the unprecedented gamble that was The Avengers.  Taking a franchise of the company's best characters who at that point had only been that in name only for decades, introducing them one by one in a way where if one movie failed the whole house of cards would come crashing down and built it into the definitive film franchise of the twenty-first century.

    Native actors to Adam Sandler, "Our dignity is not for sale!"

    in Culture

    In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
    Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
    One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
    Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:


    1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.


    2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.


    3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
    Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
    David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.

    A Kind Voice on Movies

    in Movies

    Melancholy is an honest attempt to illustrate the true experience of an individual dealing with a major depressive disorder. It does away with the stereotypes that often plague portrayals of depressed characters in TV and film.  


    The film focuses on one night in the life of Sara, a typical twenty-something going through a severe depressive episode while trying reach out for any kind of catalyst to pull herself free, searching for help through friends, faith, and medication. Through Sara's eyes we see the despair, hopelessness, and fear that can cripple the life of an individual fighting a major depressive disorder. Sara's boyfriend, Graham, provides the perspective of the outsider. He struggles to find some way to help the woman he loves but can't find a way to break Sara out of her cycle of lethargy and depression. The relationship between Sara and Graham demonstrates a common example of the misunderstanding and disconnect between any couple in which one person is suffering from depression. Melancholy explores this disconnect and provides an emotional insight into the struggles of both Sara and Graham.


    Our guest this episode will be Writer/Director Nathan Edwards to talk about this project.


    Check out the Kickstarter campaign for this film here.

    Audiobook Sample #9, Could It Be True? Is That You?

    in Lifestyle

    With only two left after today, we anticipate what could happen next. I can't believe we're almost done with the audiobook samples. Are you excited? Remember, I'll be doing a strawpoll when all the audibook samples are completed.


    Today's reading is somewhat unique. With Identical Filming as a title, you'd think it would be about copyrights, illegal writings, and the like. You're slightly wrong. Instead, you get pulled into the film industry and learn what mostly happens behind the scenes as identical twin sisters discover each other after being separated at birth. They had no idea they had so much in common. What's the worst that could happen?
