Tue, 28 Mar 2017 18:09:49 PDT

Brown returns from Japan with stories to share, just as a swath of Orientalist garbage swamps the west - Iron Fist, Ghost in the Shell, and Death Note. Plus, let's talk about the competing nostalgist philosophies of Beauty & The Beast and T2: Trainspotting!

Mamo 464: Live From Trump Tower It's Saturday Night!

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 15:24:51 PST

As if inspired by our recent comments re: our lane and his, Bozo POTUS doubled down on bringing the pop culture straight into the American government. Is Saturday Night Live now the voice of the resistance? Will corporations tilt towards, or away from, the cheesy-haired weirdo? If pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy, can PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES be the right course?

Mamo 463: Uber Iger

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 04:44:05 PST

America is dying a very specific "Germany in the mid-1930s" sort of death, and even if we don't know the outcome, we're beginning to identify the collaborators. Not so Mamo-related when it's a taxi company, but what about when it's the chairman of Disney? What are our responsibilities to this "popular culture" we've been gabbing about for 12 years? Before you say "stay in your lane," sorry friends, this shit is our lane.

Team 'Mo gathers once again to discuss the 2017 Oscar nominations, which are fairly boring, but as ever, we are not.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 05:22:40 PST

The "separate the art from the artist" debate rears its head once again, as allegations arise against Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Star Trek says we'll evolve: can we?

Mamo 460: THE MAMO !!!POWER!!! LIST 2016

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 07:44:44 PST

POWER!! Who has it? Who needs it? Who wants it? Who lost it? Team Mamo recaps the year 2016 in movers and shakers as the pop cultural landscape is wracked by celebrity deaths, digital doubles and orange-faced idiots. Hey 2016: don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. And for sure don’t fall down that flight of stairs, accidentally set yourself on fire and throw yourself off a bridge.

Mamo and Cinecast unite to form the Super Ticket! We are one with the force, the force is with us. We are one with the force, the force is with us. We are one with the force, the force is with us.

Mamo 458: Represent This

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 09:17:30 PST

What are the limits of representation? Looking at MOANA and in light of Kathleen Kennedy's recent comments re: female directors for STAR WARS, we have a gab.

Mamo 457: OWN'd

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:36:46 PDT

Welcome back to Mamo! Join us for a far-ranging discussion that starts with Donald Trump, Devin Faraci, and complicity in rape culture; wraps its arms around Ava DuVernay's 13th and Queen Sugar and the proper use of one's "power list" capital; and gets, generally, into where we are right now.

Mamo 456: Lick Icing Off My Ring

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 06:20:33 PDT

It's time to close up the summer of 2016 with respect to box office, and the box office contest! We anoint a new winner and talk about the summer that sorta wasn't.

Mamo 455: Vulvaesque

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 04:42:44 PDT

We almost made it out of TIFF 2016 without ever doing a show, but not quite! Joined (and prompted) by special guest star Shelagh Rowan-Legg, we have a look at a couple of remarkable genre films about women - RAW and THE UNTAMED - before diving into MOONLIGHT and the question of representation, as things finally begin to move forward.

Mamo 454: Freeballin'

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 17:00:51 PDT

Mamo has come a long way in 11 years, and it's time to address the inevitable changes in our direction. Plus: Suicide Squad, consumer culture at the movies, and a bit of Stranger Things love.

Mamo 453: Barco Lounger

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 04:09:48 PDT

We're back! Team Mamo checks in on the summer of 2016 with comments on Pixar, Ghostbusters, Star Trek Beyond, Kong: Skull Island, Wonder Woman, and Justice League. Plus: we bring the gavel down on Barco Escape, and coo about Brie Larson.

Mamo 452: Represent

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:55:50 PDT

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science has invited a slew of under-represented demographics to join their voting ranks this year. So is that... good? We discuss, plus all the usual blather about big fuckin' giants and swimming with the fishes.

Mamo 451: Brexit

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 19:11:49 PDT

Did we just drop the mic on the fate of our show...?

Mamo 450: Christ II - The Revenge

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 11:31:09 PDT

JESUS IS BACK AND HE'S READY TO KICK ROMAN ASS! And other sequels no one asked for. As think piece writers in general catch up to what Mamo was saying eleven years ago, we discuss the latest brace of underperforming (?) number twos, plus Warcraft, Star Trek, and the return of Mel Gibson.

Mamo 449: X's and "Oh"s

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:14:33 PDT

This Memorial Day, we fondly remember the days when Memorial Day was a good time to open a blockbuster. With X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass in the toilet, we castrate Fox's management of the X-franchise before diving into the wider question of fan entitlement, platonic relationships, and Cap being in love with Bucky (cuz he IS, ok?).

Mamo 448: Manbaby Boobytits

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:36:40 PDT

Do you hear the slurping, mewling sounds of the internet fanboys roiling in disgust (once again) because women exist? It was hard not to get hit by the spray this week as the Cinema Massacre web site (!) achieved the seemingly impossible, and turned GHOSTBUSTERS into the most politicized film release of the year. We tackle the outrage, and then dovetail to this week's other gender war, #toofemale.

Mamo 447: Team 'Mo

Sat, 14 May 2016 16:28:27 PDT

Anyone else excited for Black Panther? We sure are. What about Marvel Phase 4? Yup! What about... the digital manipulation of people irrespective of age, race, or gender? ...OK, that one gives us pause. Listen in for more!

Mamo 446: Civil Mamo

Sun, 08 May 2016 05:34:08 PDT

Team Cap? Team Iron Man? Team Marvel!! The Matts sit down for an entirely polite conversation about how great Captain America: Civil War is, and why it's making all the money. You know, like we do.
