Weekly Recap: Judas and the Black Messiah, Barb & Star, and More

For this holiday weekend, there is certainly a lot out there to check out. First up is Judas and the Black Messiah, which is terrific and well worth watching. I also have reviews for a number of new streaming releases, including the very silly Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar, and the very fun Korean space flick Space Sweepers, among other films. Additionally, there a few new podcasts up, including our episode covering the Sundance Film Festival and our latest commentary track for The Silence of the Lambs. Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to dig into as well. Enjoy, stay safe out there, and thanks for reading!
