Weekly Recap: The Menu, Bones And All, She Said, Black Panther & More!

It's kind of an offbeat week for award season. In addition to  Black Panther: Wakanda Forever , there's now  The Menu  and  Bones and All , two films that stray from the norm by presenting dark comedy and a road trip movie unlike any other, given what the two leads are all about (similar to  The Menu , it does involve eating). Of course, for more traditional awards fare,  She Said  has also opened and has plenty on its mind. I have reviews for all of these and more. Plus, we have new podcast episodes covering Black Panther . There are also my continued write-ups for  The Walking Dead , which will be ending this coming Sunday . So, feel free to check out all these reviews, podcasts, lists, trailers, and other fun.
