Terminator Dark Fate, Kanye’s Jesus album, Eddie Murphy as Dolemite
Tumbling out of the pop culture piñata this week:
THE BECH-DEATH TEST: Does the all-new all-female Terminator Dark Fate bring the much-rebooted “killer robots from the future” saga back online? Or is the story trapped in a repetitive subroutine?
HOLY JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY: Kanye West has got God, but what will God think about that? And will Mr West’s holy-rolling gospel-powered album Jesus Is King save the souls of our heathen panel?
BLACK COMEDY: Eddie Murphy’s magnificent starring turn as filthy cult comedian Rudy Ray Moore (the Benny Hill of blaxploitation) makes new biopic Dolemite Is My Name one of the most extraordinary things on Netflix right now. And Wesley Snipes isn’t bad either. Does it whitewash the world of pimps and hoes, or are we seeing a real story of American reinvention?
Joining Siân and Andrew are this week’s special guests, comedy writer Sarah Morgan and Balearic-brained DJ and Bigmouth regular Anthony Teasdale.
Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Audio production by Elsie Bath at Soho Radio. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
