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.

You may have noticed that my podcast, Iambic poetry podcast, has been doing movies reviews for the past few weeks. Well, the reason is simple. Movies are another ways that media uses poetry. Beyond music and visual art, movies have showcased poets and poems to the world. Some movies have reach the mass media and have become cult classics. So, I started a new podcast series called Reel Poetry.
Reel Poetry is a movie review that discusses films with poetry or poets being showcase and rates them for the general public. The idea is to make the public aware of independent or commercial Poetry Films. Even films that were made from the blueprints of a poem.
I am joined by returning podcast guests, Marvin Xia and Auntie Vice as my new co-host for this series. We will also bring in feature guests to get their commentary on specific films. We, also, have a movie rating system called Snap Judgement. I consist of 3 snaps, 2 snaps, and 1 snap to rate a movie. I also allow 1/2 snap increments.
We have an ever increasing list movie titles. Here are a few that we have reviewed: Paterson, Nightmare before Christmas, Poetic Justice, the Kindergarten teacher, and We are Animals. Check it out. on Iambic Poetry Podcast
Iambic Poetry Podcast present Reel Poetry
Reel Poetry reviews the 2018 independent film: The Kindergarten Teacher.
This movie definitely creeped out the reviewers. The poems done by Ocean Vuong(I spelled it wrong during the review) were spectacular but did they help or hurt the film. Maggie Gyllenhaal gave a performance that still haunt the reviewers.
