76: Eighth Grade
Movie Go Round
In this New to Two, young actress Elsie Fisher brings a vivid realism to her portrayal of Kayla Day, a 13-year-old girl who is just trying to make it through the last week of eighth grade. As she struggles to break through her own introversion, her single father struggles to stay connected to her. Nicole resonated with the material almost painfully, as both parent and former teen girl, and brought this movie to Brett and David to see if they would identify with Kayla at all.

75: Gods of Egypt
Movie Go Round
In this You Did This to Us, we drowned in CGI because you made us watch Gods of Egypt. David, Brett, and Nicole tried to swim through a Nile full of tropes (the gods are just using humans in their own games, but one plucky human has a valuable lesson for them!), dodge the dodgy acting, tune out the musical score, and long for a longer time with the dog-headed character. (And a shorter time with everyone else.) Oh, yes, and we talked about how all the speaking roles were played by non-Egyptians, because Hollywood. Email the show at hi@mgrpodcast.com.

74: Let the Right One In
Movie Go Round
In this Around the World, Nicole chose Let the Right One In. She, David, and Brett are joined by guest Terri Lynne Hudson ("Symbiotic" and "Conspiracy Theorist" on the OTV network) in taking apart and analyzing this Swedish vampire drama. What roles do gender and sexuality play in this movie centered around pre-teen children? How is it that the kids, especially Oskar, seem to be invisible to the adults sometimes? Will no one ever help poor, innocent Oskar? Is Oskar all that innocent? Is this whole town filled with psychopaths? And why does Eli avoid doing all the dirty work?

73: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Movie Go Round
In this Future Classics, David nominated the most recent film we've tackled so far as a Future Classic, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Did Brett and Nicole agree? How does it stand in the pantheon of superhero movies? How well does it juggle six (count 'em, six) spider-beings, and who was everyone's favorite? Do the visuals carry off a comic-book feel while still being successful from a cinematic point of view? Is it successful as a quality representation for kids of color? And does anyone have a tissue after than Stan Lee cameo? Email the show at hi@mgrpodcast.com. Find us online by heading over to social.mgrpodcast.com.

72: Billy Elliot
Movie Go Round
In this Movie-Go-Round Netflix Roulette, we checked out the world's introduction to actor Jaime Bell: Billy Elliot. This movie, about a rebellious tween boy drawn to classical dance in a blue-collar mining town, joins last week's film in an exploration of what it means to be a "masculine" man. Nicole, Brett, and David dug into the political backstory, the unsung lives of the women in this town, the punk and glam-rock needle drops, and the struggle to escape or accept life in a working class community. Next week's theme is Future Classics and the film is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse. Be sure to check out the film so you can follow along! Email the show at hi@mgrpodcast.com.
