Ep #045 Hurricane Bianca with Iszi Lawrence and Tom Gilliford

The forecast for Episode 45 is for a hurricane — Hurricane Bianca to be precise! Bake (2016) Off Tom Gilliford and Izsi (Womfit, Z-List Dead List podcasts) Lawrence return to Flixwatcher to review Tom’s choice, a sort of spin-off from RuPaul’s Drag Race starring the one and only Bianca Del Rio.

Hurricane Bianca- Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 004

Hurricane Bianca is a sort of school revenge, gross out comedy, with drag. Tom’s description of the film is much, much better than the actual film, it is sort of well-meaning but the delivery (crass, loud and offensive) doesn’t work, generally, women (not in drag) do not fare well either. It doesn’t even feature a realistic representation of a rat.

There are much better films that explore drag and LBGT identity that are much better (we reviewed Paris is Burning recently — check that out instead of this) but if you are particularly invested in RuPaul’s Drag Race you might find something to enjoy here.

Unsurprisingly Hurricane Bianca doesn’t score highly, across any category. Scoring a Flixwatcher first of a total of 0 from everyone — for repeat viewing. NO ONE wanted to watch this again. Scoring 2.1, it’s not great, do let us know @Flixwatcherpod if you braved the forecast and actually enjoyed it!
