Buckle up and get ready for a wild ride: Geek Girl Riot talks The Harder They Fall, before revisiting our talk all about Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. 

The Harder They Fall
We’re heading to the Wild Wild West for a tale of real cowboys with larger-than-life histories. Sherin and Julian get into The Harder They Fall, the new Western starring Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, and Idris Elba, to name a few. They shoutout the standout performances, the storytelling, and how it’s like anime.  Sherin says, “We want you to see The Harder They Fall. It gives you everything you love about Westerns but also gives you that good joy of seeing real Black people do big things on screen.”

Oh, and listen out for a quote from director Jeymes Samuel from Netflix’s TUDUM event all about the characters. The Harder They Fall hits theaters on Friday and Netflix on November 3rd.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has been killing it at the box office (long may it continue!). So what better time to throw it back to our chat all about it? Sherin and Julian give Philip a rundown of the movie…and share their (often opposite) opinions. They break down the cast & characters before sharing the highs and lows, leading them to a discussion about the issues Hollywood often has when portraying Asian characters and cultures. Watch Shang-Chi in theaters now.
