Live From New York, It’s More Sexism at SNL! - Ep. 06

Last week SNL writer Katie Rich was suspended indefinitely after sharing a tasteless joke about Donald Trump’s youngest son on Twitter. But why has the show been so quiet about writer and Weekend Update co-host Michael Che over the years, who’s had a long history of making misogynist comments on social media? In this episode ScreenCrush editors Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes discuss the show’s sexist double-standard, recent offensive SNL jokes, and why essential for the show to establish a clear stance on the Trump administration.

Would Passengers Work Better As a Horror Movie? - Ep. 04

We need to talk about ‘Passengers.’ The Chris Pratt-Jennifer Lawrence space romance isn’t as innocent as the deceptive marketing suggests, and squanders the potential of a smart sci-fi premise in favor of one of the most problematic twists in recent memory. In a new episode of Long Takes, ScreenCrush editors Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes are joined by Eric Vespe of Ain’t It Cool News to discuss the film. What would we change to improve its morally dubious premise? Would it have worked better as a horror movie? And why is Chris Pratt so creepy?

Why Hasn’t Star Wars Hired a Female Director Yet? - Ep. 03

Nearly 40 years, 9 directors, and 11 films later, and not one Star Wars movie has been directed by a woman. In a new episode of Long Takes, ScreenCrush editors Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes are joined by Angie Han of SlashFilm to discuss why Lucasfilm has yet to hire a female filmmaker. But this isn’t exclusive to Star Wars and highlights a larger problem across the industry – up and coming male directors are given more opportunities to helm blockbusters than women. Erin, Britt, Angie discuss the men who have been handed big budget projects, from Colin Trevorrow to Josh Trank, and suggest a handful of capable women Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy should consider hiring.

Asian Representation in Hollywood, Whitewashing, and How Film and TV Can Do Better - Ep. 02

In 2016 alone, the film and TV industry has produced multiple instances of whitewashing, from ‘Ghost in the Shell’ to ‘Doctor Strange’ and ‘Death Note.’ More and more, studios cast white actors in roles originally depicted as Asian, and fail to feature Asian actors in prominent lead and supporting roles. But there have also been signs of change thanks to social media and growing diversity on TV. In a new episode of Long Takes, ScreenCrush editors Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes discuss Asian representation in Hollywood with guest Shirley Li of Entertainment Weekly.

Is Paul Verhoeven’s Twisted Thriller 'Elle' Offensive? - Ep. 01
