The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, review and discuss Disney’s third live-action film of 2016, Queen of Katwe. Starring newcomer Madina Nalwanga, Lupita Nyong'o, and David Oyelowo, the film accounts the journey of a young girl with dreams of becoming a Chess Champion. Helmed by director Mira Nair, we contemplate the film’s impact in the Oscar race, and ask the question whether the film’s unique story-telling will win over moviegoers, as well as critics, alike.

News items include the casting of Benicio Del Toro’s in the upcoming Predator reboot, Peter Berg discussing his perfect pairing to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the sequel to his action/comedy smash hit, The Rundown (2003), and the latest and historic addition of the first Latina comedian on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”.
