Eddie Huang and Elena Bergeron welcome New York Times film critic A.O. Scott to the Monosodium Glutamate podcast.

The Hollywood powerhouse, who famously makes his home in Brooklyn, N.Y., and whose 40 Acres & a Mule Filmworks has produced more than 35 flicks since 1985, reveals how he felt that the New York Knicks failed to snatch up NBA superstar LeBron James. “I was not disappointed. Because, if somebody doesn’t want to be here, then you don’t want’em. But I will go to my grave thinking they concocted this thing two years ago. This thing was rigged, and they made it work. So I have to give them credit,” Spike Lee tells The Knicks Blog host Anthony Donahue. But my grandmother, who put me through film school—she lived to be 100 years old—she used to say to me, ‘Spikey, be careful what you wish for.’ And I don’t think there’s a more appropriate saying when you look at the Miami Heat now.”

Time Breakdown of Show
Jimi Noel Interview 1:34-23:23
Tyler Perry v. Spike Lee: 23:24-69:48
Join host Stacey Brewer, of H. Blu's Word, as she addresses the topic, Tyler Perry vs. Spike Lee: Who Better Represents Black Cinema? After watching the Oscars...which had almost a billion viewers...we were disheartened by the fact that there still is not much diversity at the famous award show. Are the Oscars important to black cinema? Who better could help us get to the Oscar stage? Perry, Lee or neither? So many questions! We will attempt to answer a few during our broadcast. We will also play a rare audio clip of Spike Lee actually praising the work of Tyler Perry, the news only plays his negative comment. So definitely tune in, March 1 at 9pm. Should be a good one!
Also joining the show will be independent R&B artist, Jimi Noel. Jimi is a Brooklyn native who has been inspired by music pioneers such as Usher, Stevie Wonder, and Maxwell. Jimi also has a talent of sketch art, and looks to paint a beautiful picture for himself in music. We look forward to speaking with Jimi about his journey throughout the music industry.

We pause this week to examine the state of the American Church System on the 25th Anniversary of the release of the critically acclaimed movie “Do the Right Thing” African American Independent Film Director Spike Lee. He met with much controversy about the film and its possible effect on society. Have things changed in these many years and if so…for better or for worse in terms of Christian America and the application of the true Scriptures of God.
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Transformers: Age of Extinction! Is it on par with the first three? Is it any better than the first three? Might it actually be worse? Do the Dinobots actually make an appearance? Is it time for Michael Bay to walk away from the franchise? Can Michael Bay actually be considered an auteur, or is he merely a skilled technician? Is the franchise beyond redemption at this point? Is the source material too inane to be made palatable for adults?
We’ll also be reviewing the sci-fi actioner Snowpiercer! Can it be considered a modern day fable? Is it on par with other dystopian sci-fi classics like The Matrix and The Road Warrior? Has director Bong Joon-ho managed to upstage his Hollywood brethren? Has Chris Evans become one of our most dependable leading men? Can he now be considered a fanboy favorite? Does this film show that groundbreaking sci-fi can be made on a meager budget?
Lastly, we’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Do the Right Thing! It is still relevant after all these years? Is it evenhanded in its portrayal of race relations in America? Were critics right to fear that it might set off race riots around the country? Can Spike Lee still make films of this caliber? Is “Fight the Power” the greatest rap song to ever appear on a motion picture soundtrack? Does the film offer an accurate portrait of Koch-era New York?
