We had an AWESOME podcast return yesterday!  The S&A crew (Tambay, Sergio, Monique, Emmanuel, Vanessa and Cynthia) covered the movie Red Tails as well as Spike Lee and his latest flick Red Hook Summer.  However, the subject generating some "heated" debate was the casting controversy surrounding the film adaptation of Half Of A Yellow Sun proving we (the S&A crew) don't always agree on everything.

We didn't get to chat about The Oscars or Idris Elba since we ran out of time but, don't fret, we'll get to it next week.  You can listen to the show below or download the episode HERE

Don't forget to join us every Sunday at 3:00pm/ET for an hour of entertaining film talk!

    Monique's continued Halle hating is RIDICULOUS, Halle is a talented and respected actress, as much as or more so than Thandie Newton, Halle has been recognized and awarded for several great roles (Things we Lost in the Fire,Frankie and Alice, Monster's Ball etc) many more than Thandie who is fine but has a tendency to overact (i.e colored girls), so please keep the hate to your self, hater

    Come on, guys! If you're going to paraphrase, then at least get the gist of it right. Since when does insight mean qualified? Nobody needs to be qualified to have an opinion, but it would have been nice to have more insight into the topic of an Igbo or Nigerian actress playing the role that Thandie Newton is up for in Half of a Yellow Sun. What we had, instead, turned it into just another broadbased African-American style issue of colourism. It was not even indicated whether anyone had read the book the film is based on or had any knowledge of the history in which it was set, or the background of the character Ms Newton is to portray. Kudos to Vanessa though (I think - or it might have been Cynthia) for at least trying to be see the wider issue.
