Love Beats Rhymes Feat Tarandeep

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-i5as8-f8a2c5

Reel Poetry with Tarandeep review 2017 film Love Beats Rhymes (starring Jill Scott, Azealia Banks, Common, and John David Washington).  The main question, Is rap poetry?, is a good talking point but the movie doesn’t dive into it as much and deals a lot of clichés with the cast.

Speak to me in Poetry

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-4zwmw-f7fb9d

Iambic Poetry podcast present REEL POETRY

The Reel Poets review the 2011 independent file, Speak to me in poetry, a movie about a shy guy who make a wish to talk like a poet.  This movie got the chatter going and the Reel poets angry at CharRon watching this. From the acting, screenwriting, lighting, and ethnical appropriation; the director should listen to what not to do again. But we do find one spark of Light about mental health.
