To start off Brit Picks, Jason presents the 2014 comic book/action flick Kingsman: The Secret Service starring Taron Egerton and Colin Firth. They dive into this problematic hit head-first by discussing Samuel L. Jackson’s reasoning for his character’s unique speech pattern, the controversial church scene and how it relates to the previous presidential administration, they debate the strength of the female characters and their narrative purpose, this film’s opinion of the ‘gritty spy film’ genre and much more.
Next week: Brit Picks rolls on with Brendan’s choice – Attack the Block!
