I’ve waited forever to do this, but after some encouragement from some pals, I finally decided it was time for a Lyles Movie Files Podcast. My goal is to just go more in depth with some of the content I’m writing about over conversations with my boys — Lonnie ‘The Chief,’ Melvin ‘Gunner’ and Jayce. Eventually, I hope to expand this aspect of the LMF empire further so pardon the mess while I build this bad boy up. Enjoy the shows.

Moving on to Episode 15 of Lyles Movie Files. I finally got to use a brief clip of my Queen of Katwe interview with Lupita Nyong’o as she prepared to take on the role of Nakia in the highly anticipated Black Panther. Find out what she was most looking forward to in this brief segment.
Also, we break down the Solo trailers and see if it finally won us over. Finally, we explore video game movies. Which ones have been good, which series deserve video game movies and why Hollywood struggles to get that right.

Episode 14 – Who Seriously Thinks Black Lightning is Anti-White?

Also, we take a look at RAW 25 and why it failed to meet viewer’s expectations. How could WWE have made it more memorable and why did they choose to play it safe? Our thoughts on that and which old school star impressed us enough to think they should be back in the WWE today.

Episode 11: Black Lightning Reaction and 2017 Superlatives
The CW shows are back for 2018. We break down the return of The Flash, the disappointing arrival of the Legion of Super-Heroes on Supergirl and see if we were shocked over how much we liked Black Lightning.
We also share our 2017 superlatives, why some dude needed to make an all-male version of The Last Jedi and our can’t miss picks for the winners of the AFC and NFC Championship games.
