This fortnight, Nick and Alastair watch new Spike Lee movie Da 5 Bloods, then read the opening issues of madcap comic series The Ludocrats. Despite their best efforts, there isn’t much connection there – which is apt enough for the chaotic nature of the latter.
Before all that though, it’s time for some popular musical streaming service fun with the Hamilton film on Disney Plus, and the equally culturally significant Eurovision movie on Netflix.
Then for their first big item, Nick and Alastair dig into Da 5 Bloods (14:21), taking in both the movies about Vietnam and the ones by Spike Lee, and relatively few spoilers for once.
Finally, they’ve read the opening two issues of The Ludocrats (32:11), the new absurdist action comedy by Kieron Gillen, Jim Rossignol, Jeff Stokely and co, and… well, it’s a hard one to describe in words, which might be a problem for this medium.
