How-to-Watch-Handmaids-Tale-Season-2-Online

Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” was an amazing memoir published in 1985.

FAKE NEWS!

Just kidding, “The Handmaid’s Tale” was NOT a memoir, but has horrifying potential to become such. We love that this book by Margaret Atwood covers topics pertinent to today’s society, and acts as a reminder of what could be if we let hatred win. This story has been adapted for the screen by HULU and sesason two is just around the corner!

Check out our episode for a recap of Season 1 (and feelings), and season 2 predictions!

We are SO excited to see where this show goes next (and also horrified).

ALSO, we’re deeply sad that Elizabeth Moss is a Scientologist. More deets within!

Episode 041: American Gods

american gods

Neil Gaiman is a master of words, and we love and respect his every move here at Beauty and the Bitch. That being said, we did of course make room to TEAR THIS HOUSE TO THE GROUND.

American Gods is (in our opinion) one of the best books (EVER) and a Gaiman classic. It has been turned into a STARZ adaptation and is set to launch season two in April 2018. HOWEVER, there is too much drama not to discuss! Gaiman is right in the middle, and people are leaving, show runners are changing, story lines are up in the air AND WE ARE HAVING FEELINGS.

Additionally, we have the scoop on all the other Gaiman projects in the works, and which ones we like most. Basically we have a gay-man on Gaiman and a woman who has feelings about John Hamm in a powder blue suit.

Come share in the love BB’s, it’s good for the soul ❤

Austin, Texas’ very own Ernest Cline has given us a sweeping sci-fi/fantasy epic made for every kid from the 80’s who LOVES nostalgia (and video games, and movies, and books, and style AND DRAMA). “Ready Player One” was one of Morgan’s favorite reads of last year (though it came out several years ago), and is definitely for most any Sci-Fi/Fantasy lover!

Beauty and the Bitch are tackling part three of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” series. Will they be more bitchy than before? Will “The Hobbit” movies continue to be unneccarily long? What happened to Smaug? Can we hold our OWN attention, even? If anyone can do it, Beauty and the Bitch can!

Episode 038: Annihilation

Beauty and the Bitch has taken a step into the wild, deep darkness of Jeff van der Meer’s Southern Reach Trilogy. This interesting, and twisted trilogy has received the Hollywood treatment with *amazing* director Alex Garland (Ex Machina), who co-wrote and directed Annihilation.

Naturally, we have feelings about how the adaptation has shaped up (and changed in a number of drastic ways) and what we think that might mean. Revel in our feelings, effortlessly thrown shade and shared love for Alex Garland, sci-fi (in general) and drama. PLUS: miscellaneous ramblings (obviously our forte).

Be sure to catch Annihilation while it’s still in U.S. theaters and watch it on Netflix soon if you are international!

Hey BB’s:

Today we are joined by our super smart film buff friend, Dallas(!), who takes us through the intricate weavings of film maker Ryan Coogler’s career (and why he SO deserves the props he’s getting). Of course, we pepper his legitimate knowledge with jokes, Michael B. Jordan gossips, miscellaneous musings and general rantings.
