"They want to write the comic, if they're true, then someone else wrote it. So brought back a creator of many great characters, most famously canine. So he owned that character, that's why there was a canine series that was made by an Australian production company. There was another canine series or movie in the works, I don't know what the state of that is now, sadly, after bob's passing. But he was a lovely blow as well. Writers are great. They certainly are. Just like you. You are great, Sean. You were great. Oh, thank you. That's not why I said it. But I was a Doctor Who convention recently. And I selling the book. I did realize I don't think more than anything. Doctor Who fans loved the writers. And I think part of that is us because so many of those writers would then write the target novelizations. Which would then some much people's childhood. Like the stars. I love Star Wars, but I can't imagine many Star Wars, the writers of The Mandalorian, other than Jon Favreau and Dave filoni, going to a convention and people have been like, I've got to go meet this person. The fandom doesn't treat writers in revere them in that same way. But with Doctor Who definitely is. I mean, that's always the modern complaint with Doctor Who series. Obviously, there's been a lot of announcements. Recently, they've cast a new Doctor Who. The upcoming doctor after the Jodie Whittaker's regeneration, that will be the doctor. I'm blanking on their name. I'm not sure what it is. Off the top of my head, but they've also announced that David Tennant and Catherine Taylor coming back. This week, actually. The announcements have been really fun. It's been interesting that we've had those announcements so early. And I can only assume that they've been official announcements because they knew because there's been set photos leaked. They must have known if they were doing exterior shots in Cardiff. People are going to make the link, let's just announce it now. And someone else, Sophie house, who's a great artist, I saw she tweeted earlier that she wonders if there is more that we're not going to know..

"That was awkward. Where do you think Luke learned that? Yeah, they could show the prequel, like the George Lucas, how he came across blue teeth milk. You know? Aren't those all males? So anyway, chapter 6, book both that. So basically mando goes to this planet to see grogu and to give him his chain mail to be made for him. And we see some of Luke's training of grogu. We also see the start of his Jedi temple. For his Jedi academy? Oh yeah, his spider droids. That's right. Are building up the academy that later gets destroyed by kylo ren. We get R two D two. In this right out the gate, I forgot. Yeah. That's a big. I guess he had to know if you will. Shut things down. Yeah, he shut down randomly. He took a nap to fuck with comedic timing. And maybe this will be the start of Dave filoni and Jon Favreau kind of improving the sequel trilogy a little bit, kind of like they've done with the Clone Wars and stuff. We can step in and fill in these stories and make those other movies better. It does feel like that's what they're doing. Yeah. This and bad batch, the animated because the Clone Wars series made the prequels so much better. Yep, far and away. Just that bridging the gap of two films. It adds weight to it. In a way that it kind of gives you so much more context around it where the movie is left so many things open ended and left so much emptiness. I guess. You were always told that Anakin Skywalker was one of the greatest jedis. You didn't really see it in the films. Okay, well, now he's a teenager ish and now he's grown his hair out and is kind of a fuck boy. And then in the sequel trilogy, we see, we're told that, oh, Luke rebuilt the Jedi order and then had it all dashed away by kylo ren, turning evil sort of and we never got to see it. We just saw old hermit Luke. But now they're starting to hash it out, show us how it happened. Yeah, as soon as they did, I was like, damn it, did kylo kill grogu? I know. I'm curious. I really think we're skipping ahead. At least I am. That they give grogu the chance at the end if he wants to be go with mando and take the chainmail or if he wants Yoda's old lightsaber. And I, to me, it's a no brainer that he's going to go with mando because that's where the bread and butter is like unless they're going to do some other spin off with grogu where he just doesn't talk. Like mando needs somebody with him that will make him talk. In his series. Also, I think grogu will probably get or make his own lightsaber or do something. If here's a question. They're both if grogu goes with mando, is he going to have to wear a helmet if he starts following the way. That would be adorable. What does your hair sticking out? So cute. But I think what I'm guessing is that mando is going to be like, all right, yes, I am a Mandalorian, but I don't have to be one of your fucking Jedi ways and our Mandalorian ways..

"You know, I love him as a writer. And he wrote, it was basically like they weren't doing anything for aka and he was like, yo, can I get Hawkeye? And they're like, yeah, sure, Matt fraction. And he's like, cool. Anyway and said this heartfelt story and now it became so huge that it made spin offs and then yada, yada yada here we are. But I think that's the marvel exec saying, hey, now is the time for a Hawkeye show. Can someone do it? So I was like, yeah, sure, I can do it, and they try to make it happen like that reverse way, right? Here's what I sort of things happening. And I could be wrong, but this is my theory. You know, and this is a perfect example. What you said is exactly right. You have writers that take side characters and write some of the best writing that they've ever written. Is fucking amazing. I absolutely love that shit. You know? And is what Jessica Jones? Iconic. A fucking amazing. Have these writers who take these characters and they are given more freedom than they would on anything else because then Jeff Lemire after that he went on to write like, I think he was hired on the X-Men at some point and writing that. He's been one of the premier writers and he's still fun and interesting, but there's this status quo, big idea of so many machination things that you can't do. So you have these writers who are writing these beautiful intimate stories with these like random characters who don't matter who they end up making matter. And I think it's a similar goal. When you're writing a show for Disney, you don't get to make a small intimate thing that doesn't matter and where you get a lot of freedom, you are making the big product. And so there's a lot of stipulations. There's a lot of money involved. There's a lot of business shit. So you don't get but still do everything. It still happens because that's how I felt about The Mandalorian, right? When Jon Favreau started The Mandalorian, nobody gave a shit. They were like, yo, I got this idea for this thing. He didn't have that much money. They didn't do. They didn't do a list star. He was just like, ah, I got me do this thing. And they're like, yeah, sure, Jon Favreau. You've done us good so far for Lion King and Iron Man. So go ahead. And then it's iconic and now there's a million spin offs and then there's a million things in the million people carry it. I don't care anymore. That's a little different. I guess you're right, but I would say that's a little different because Dave filoni came on and Dave filoni is the king of Star Wars and he really knows how to fucking do Star Wars, right? And I feel like when Jon Favreau was doing a lot of it by himself, it wasn't that good. And then Dave filoni came on and made the second season. I think really fucking great. Oh, I didn't even, I'm not even talking about the size. I'm only talking about first. I didn't hate all of the first season. I really didn't like the first season. I skipped episode. Oh, I liked it. I liked it because it was just so because it was so random. It was so, Star Wars for me should feel almost a little random, you know? All those little pocket stories. And marvel should feel the same. You feel like a comic book, right? Yeah. It should feel like we go over here with the Hawkeye and all these crazy things happens to Hawkeye. So let's get to the Hawkeye show now. Overall, it sounds like you felt the same way you felt about all these things about it..

"Disney. So how do you feel? What are the prospects for something good happening in the culture war Chris? Well, here's the thing. I think that these things can not be forced. They just have to have a naturally. And I would say that look at something like The Mandalorian. They made they made Star Wars, Star Wars, the new Star Wars movies, which I just pretend didn't happen. But let's acknowledge the fact that they exist for a moment. They were just a disaster, right? And it was this leftist woke activism that ruined them. Then what's his name? Jon Favreau comes in, and he makes Mandalorian. Now, not a lot of people know about Jon Favreau. He was in the movie swingers when he was younger. Then he made the movie elf. The Christmas movie elf. And now he's done this Mandalorian. He's done a lot of stuff. He did he ended up creating essentially creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Iron Man. He made Iron Man. Right. And here's the thing a lot of people, I don't think know about John favreau. He has never stated his politics explicitly anywhere that I've seen. But based on who he's hired and based on how he writes, in my mind, he's clearly either a conservative or a strong libertarian. And nobody really knows that about him, but he's but he's been able to. But first off, but first off, he's a fanboy who loves and respects the legacy of the franchise or just a good story. It's not where it begins, Chris. Yeah, he's just a great filmmaker. He's a great storyteller. He knows how to do it. He's willing to ignore this woke ideology. And instead, just focus on making a good product. I think that you look back at films of the 80s and you say, oh, it's all white men. It's all masculine. It's got these terrible story. We've got to fix it. We've got to change it. But it's like these were successful for a reason and he looks back and he says, that was a great project. This was a great story. What can we learn from that? Instead of how do we reject it? How do we learn from it? And it goes and he produces things that people actually like and there's a reason why some of the best stuff coming out of Hollywood right now, if there is anything good, something like The Mandalorian comes out, it's because it's not something that rejects what has gone before, but it's something that embraces it, respects it and moves forward with new projects and that doesn't say, oh white men are evil and women are like the strongest characters in fiction. And he doesn't have to put all that stuff in. He can if it works for the story, but he doesn't for a woke purpose. And if I may, you may disagree with me. I enjoy The Mandalorian, but The Mandalorian isn't. It's not Casablanca. And it's not even the Star Wars. It's just a good story that a western. Yeah, yes, exactly. It's a western, it's high noon, but it's not trying to push a political message. It's just a good story. That's the case. It's an original project that he created. I think he wanted to do boba Fett, which he's now doing. He's doing well with that as well now. And but it eventually turned into this Mandalorian story. His original story. So and yeah, yeah, it's just good storytelling. Really?.

"Some people say, the difference between people and the ones that have had panic attacks, the ones that haven't. Right. Because it's a hole you fall in. You got to imagine me drop middle of the ocean and have difficulty swimming. Yeah, that's what it feels like. And I've told friends because I've had other friends who've had it and the unsympathetic nature of other people. I'm like, can you hey man, I went running down to the medical services at my college and physician, looked at me like, what's wrong? What do you think walks in the Woods? I'm like, if that would take care of it. I've tried that. I'm trying everything. That's so crazy, though, but I've told my friends I'm like, just imagine they had cancer and they're throwing up in the street from chemotherapy. Would you yell at them? 'cause I have friends who are like, I mean, when I was having mine, they would be like, you're a pussy. What's the matter with you? Is mister croll an interview Doug at any point? You don't want a few months ago. Okay, so Carol, I had a panic attack on you like this. I'd had panic tech and years and years and years. I was in therapy for a long time we'll talk more about therapy too. But we were interviewing Jon Favreau. And a psychotic patient came on the air, and it was a very delicate, dangerous situation. Psychiatrically, in favreau goes, don't you listen to anybody? Don't take those medication. I was like, no, you stop it. Don't this could be a deadly situation. And we kind of got each other's face a little bit. And I liked you were right too though. But it really back then particularly I was I thought what I was doing was so important medically. And so but you know what it is. It was important. I didn't need to be quite so personally taken by it. I needed to confront him and get the thing right. And so it ended was your cans, whatever. And then we go on to do another show and we're like three minutes into the show and all of a sudden I have a full panic I'm sorry, we have to stop. So you know how you get frozen. You can't do anything. You just can't thank you. You can't do anything in the world. You see the world through a tunnel and everything. It's all that shit. And I just need ten minutes. And I go in the I go in my dressing room and crowell comes in and goes, what's wrong with you? I think panettone. Get the fuck back out there. I will take care of everything. If we have to be here 5 more minutes longer because of you I'm gonna kick your ass. And I went on and did it. It helped me to go out and do it, even though it was very uncomfortable. Do you know I had one on Charlie rose? Oh, no kidding. I was talking. He asked me a question. And then all of a sudden, I was like, what did he ask me and my father was outside the glass and it was all black and all of a sudden I was like, where am I? What am I doing? What did you do? I don't even know. And I've never watched it because I was so scared too. I had that happen once. It was like 6 in the morning, three in the morning, my time, I was on Today Show Matt Lauer was interviewing me. And I started to go down that poll you go into. I know exactly what you're talking about. We've just going to what did he say? What am I going to say? What am I saying? What's going on? Second guessing everything in your frozen. And lower leaned into me like, are you okay? And I thought, oh my God, I gotta get my shit together. I just did it. And it's scary though, you know? It really is. Literally is, that's the whole biology is fear. So back to therapy. Do you think that we're talking now about you being in a place of life where you've synthesized all these different things you've done? Did therapy help you do that? You know what, I never want to dismiss therapy because I actually love my therapist. But I don't know, because that's actually a good answer. 'cause you shouldn't, because it should operate on a level that's tectonic. Yeah. You know what I mean? You can't really tell. Yeah, I mean, I am a lot of times in life. It's day to day happiness based on situations. And that's kind of how I usually talk to my therapist. I'm like, it's situational. I don't have depression or anxiety, but when things happen, so I guess, I don't know, therapy is a good way. I like to talk. So podcasts, that's what I did. I talked to my therapist. But it's like having somebody in your corner when you're a fighter, you gotta go back to the corner and think about things to talk about things. Then you go out and fight. Yeah..

"It's been on zoom a zoom with organizers in volunteers and you know you i spend a lotta time way too much time reading political news every day and way too much time on twitter and it is often depressing and the tone as cynical as it gets. It can get you in a really bad head space and the times when i am speaking volunteers especially younger. Volunteers Kids out of college. High school kids even and i hear them talk about politics and hear them talk about organizing and they read the news too. They know what's going on and they just they're still hopeful and they still wanna fight and they still want to organize. And when i see that i think okay. Maybe we'll be okay. We'll be okay. it's because they're so young. But i appreciate this correct so Beto going to be the next governor of texas we hope so abbott is the fucking worse is i mean. He's really just trying to do everything wrong. In that state possible and everything possibly do You know i i love oh i've always I've always loved beto. And it's i have to give him a lot of credit because what a tough year to run for governor of texas in iran like in two thousand twenty two you know when democrats the party in power usually lose seats in amid terms you know all kinds of political winds blown against him and you gotta give the guy credit for For trion so let's hope hope. Pull it off all right p. mcconnell. Hey i just feel bad for that guy that's true. He's got other options John thanks so much for doing this. This was really great talking to you. Thanks for having me steve. appreciate it. great job. I'm at interview. I feel motivated. I'm ready. i'm ready to to donate to know off years. Yeah exactly that's that's what we want everyone to do. And of course. Jon so great always you know. We love his show. Were big fans of crooked media. In general and vote save america and shaniqua mcclendon who is our friend and just a force behind the great political work. They're doing there so let's talk about our reasons for hope. Awesome my reason for hope. This week is You know i'm a tv addict and Michaela coil got in a writing emmy this weekend. I could not watch the emmy awards. Unfortunately i was doing bedtime and mom's gossiping's zones of So it'll be a minute before. I get to watch things in real time again. I think but This show that she won an emmy for. I may destroy you. It is amazing. There is so much content out there and when you have something that is really special and unique and diverse and makes you feel something. I think that should be honored. She was snubbed earlier. This year So this is well deserved and she had listened to her acceptance speech. You know. it's aimed at at writers and moore writer. And so i felt it but i would feel it if i wasn't so congratulations to her And i'm so appreciative. That she made such a powerful beautiful show that made me feel seen and heard. That's a great reason for hope and I did watch the emmys. I was inspired by a lot of the shows and people who are recognized on there. I thought overall though the broadcast was kind of may so You know it's still. It's still weird. The hybrid like corona virus restrictions. And stuff like that. it's you know but Are you ted laso superfan. Oh boy. I guess i guess we can go down. I think i think it's like you fall. People who've seen it fall into two categories..

"That goes for everyone else And i do think that's probably the the best strategy short-term great well So in the meantime before we start pressuring them on a filibuster. We've got some work to do on. Virginia and crooked has been an incredible partner with swing laughed. And i i know for sure Since i've i'm kind of an og swing left guy started volunteering when it first and swing left would not have had to reach that it. It has if it wasn't for its partnership in the amplification. You all gave it early on so i. I am very grateful to all the work that you've done and the partnership was left You do it again. Now with our No off years fund collaboration for virginia. Can you talk about that That fund and the stakes for virginia right now and why. Everyone should donate and volunteer in virginia. Absolutely and and let me just say you guys have been a fantastic partners. Well and you know one of the questions we get whether it's from people online or it shows that we used to do back in the old times Is how can i help. What can i do work in. I give and it has been wonderful to have a partner in swing left where we can direct people to In virginia obviously there's a gubernatorial race. People probably have noticed that in the news That's going to be very tight. That is very competitive. Is probably the most important off year. Election left this year. It's gonna certainly the most competitive But there's also down ballot races in virginia there's state legislative seats that We both need to defend and hopefully flip and we have fun with you guys where i believe we were trying to raise two hundred thousand dollars for A lot of these down ballot races. Which i think we might have hit. Sounds very doable. That doesn't we might be. We might be. Yeah well this is the but this is the point as you know with a lot of these down..

"Joe mentioned might wanna punt on reconciliation till twenty twenty. Two whatever bullshit is in the headlines at any given day This is about everyone trying to get together and and figure out how to convince these two that it is incredibly important to pass not just this infrastructure bill but also this economic plan that would you know. Transform people's lives whether it's healthcare climate education housing immigration. You name it To follow of questions to that One do you think it's just them. Do you think it's I mean it's it's probably easy for some more moderate dims to hide behind how vocal they are but are there some other dims that we need to worry about. I think absolutely not just them. I think there's i think it's exactly what you said. There's there's moderates hiding behind them. But i think the fact that they're hiding behind them and not vocal means that they are more persuadable than mansion in cinema mentioned. I mean like you could get all those. All the moderates were hiding behind them on board. And you'd still have the mansion and cinema problem right so it's like no matter no matter what other problems you fix and there are plenty of other problems to fix you. Still have these two senators who get a vote at the end of the day and who aren't up until twenty twenty four and twenty four joe manchin. It's going to be seventy four will even run again. you know. it is primary and worth it. Ken someone else can. Another democrat win in west virginia. Who's not joe manchin. I don't know it's hard to see cures and cinema. I think is another situation. Look you can be a moderate and win in arizona and still not be as big of an asshole as christians that gives him is on the filibuster or prescription drugs or anything else. Mark kelly's a moderate. He wasn't arizona. He's not pulling michigan on the filibuster. He's not wholeness. Shit on reconciliation bill or prescription drug reform. So i don't necessarily understand why cares. Thinks that she is sort of She can just do this without any cost. Because i do think that you could see a primary challenge being mounted to her and two thousand twenty four not even necessarily from the left just someone who is willing to make the senate work Unlike unlike she would so. But again. Like i said the tough truth here is that it all comes back to those two in trying to change their mind. It's interesting i know that Cinema is not particularly popular among her arizona. Dims to her colleagues before she was elected. We're not a super bullish on her. Yeah yeah. She had a reputation for not being particularly well liked. But you know it's all hearsay. It's a podcast You know. I don't have as many listeners. You do so. I can say whatever i want to be substantiated at all right here we go. Yeah i can always apologize later My second part to the question though was In terms of volunteers in our listeners. what do you think is the best use of their energy around the filibuster right now. I think that the senate in the in the house are going to sort out this sort of budget mess right now and i think that the voting rights is gonna come to the floor probably a little bit later. Once we get past. We talked about the the budget bill and their infrastructure bill but they also have a debt ceiling. They have to get debt ceiling thing to figure rescue. Yeah because you don't want like a global economic collapse which was what happens if we breached the debt ceiling The government could shut down. And in i think ten days so got to figure that out once that has passed us..

"That that argument reaches more people and more hard to reach places is going to be the most effective way that we can sort of build the progressive movement even larger than it is today. Because you know they're not going to get these messages from The mainstream media and like you said The rest of the the internet and the media is just flooded with a lot of disinformation and other garbage these days which is Which is pretty tough. But we can't just like we can't just like you know seed the playing field right now. I couldn't agree more. I mean more content. Is i think the immediate solution to that and And i also I think you'd probably agree with me. Don't think that for the indoctrinated cult members who have already consumed all of these lies. There's not a lot to say to them but There is something to say to the people who are discovering that for the first time the younger people who are are just getting into that kind of content right yeah. I think that's what a lot of it's easy to get wrong to think that There aren't a lot of persuadable People out there right obviously as an organizer you know that that couldn't be further from the truth of course like most of the electorate is not that engaged not intensely partisan and the more you talk to people the more you realize that any one example a sort of why you know the right is so much better at this. I was talking to Stephanie valencia on positive. America and She runs equities research Which does polling among the tino communities in sort of organizing in that in those communities as well and she's telling me this anecdote that at the end of the twenty twenty presidential i think progressive groups liberal donors progressive donors. Richard owners poured fourteen million dollars into south florida to buy a bunch of ads Television ads and like last week of the raisin didn't do much doesn't do much when you pour that much money in the last week of the race to buy.

"John and tommy had discussions prior to two thousand sixteen when we left the white house about. Wouldn't it be cool to start progressive media company Because we don't have enough of them or the ones that have been out there. You know weren't really that effective or you know you have someplace like msnbc. That has a lot of fantastic progressive hosts but they still don't sort of urged people to get involved and take action about the news that they're seeing every day and so you see a lot of bad news and you're not exactly sure what to do about it and we thought we had a progressive media company that sort of mixed media with political activism. That would be something new and also something needed And then once trump won. We're like well now. It's needed more than ever and since we already had this podcast we thought well. Let's you know the progressive media company. We would have built in twenty thirteen. Two thousand fourteen might not have been a podcast company. But since now we all had experience with podcasts and we also realized that the format of a podcast was sort of the antithesis of what you get on cable news right which has all sound bites on cable news and cut to a commercial has bunch of people yelling in boxes and doesn't really work out that well and on a podcast you just you know. It's a longer format and you can have a more interesting nuance substantive conversation and we didn't want to have a bunch of like screaming talking heads and so that just worked for so we we Started positive america and we started crooked media and our goal. From the beginning was to broaden both the number and types of podcast that we did to have a diverse range voices on all these different podcasts covered diverse range of issues You know related to news and politics and of course. Now we're beyond that too so Yeah it's it has turned into something much bigger than i think any of thought when we started it. but we're We're really proud of it. Really happy about it. It's it's great. You've done amazing work. And i love what you're saying about the longer format because that's something that really resonated with me when we started This humble little swing left podcast. It's now this'll be one hundred and second episode. We're here so thanks. Yeah we made a pass two hundred But but you know coming from an organizer perspective. I know the power of personal stories and And we get like you did at the doors like a quick shot to kinda share something personal with someone at the door to connect with them and you know candidates have their talking points that get spit out on media. Very short form does not a lot of opportunity to really be inspired and driven into action by people's like full personal story..

I'm gonna see it on twitter anyway. That's a great point. And i don't mean to say that these efforts are in vain. And just because you don't get you know a prime-time net- network spot for your rally doesn't mean that it's not reaching lawmakers and And the people aren't paying attention to it it does every- everything we do Makes it does make a difference And social media You know is a great place to blast those out.

"Jon Favreau was credited with launching the EU with Iron Man, but he created other blockbusters by reimagining Live action versions of Disney Classics like Jungle Book in The Lion King. Before turning his attention to his first love, Star Wars. The kids coming with me along with Emmy winning Star Wars, the Clone Wars animator and producer Dave Filoni, they managed to do the seemingly impossible Capturing George Lucas's vision in the live action TV show and uniting a fan base fractured by the divisive Star Wars. The last Jedi I know for me, it was Star Wars. I was not burnt out. But I was very upset with how everyone was reacting to the sequel trilogy, and so then, when it got to the Mandalorian, and it felt like old Star Wars, and everyone was like on board, I was like great. This is the Star Wars I know and love. That's Rachel Lishman, lifelong fan and co editor of the pop culture site that Mary Sue. Also the creator of the Pedro Pascal Podcast. It is a man in a tin suit and a puppet the entire time And yet we've somehow And like this relationship is the most important thing in the galaxy actress and writer Mindy Kaling. Mando is awesome.

"They canceled that show aired on the cartoon network and it was a very expensive show so day felonious retooled it and they came up with the star wars rebels which had a very lackluster first season. But at the end of the first season a middle aged to so katana steps into the spotlight and suddenly things get good. Yeah there were just three excellent seasons. Yeah and that was the that was the star wars universe for me. The prequel trilogy all of that was just to provide conceptual design for star wars the animated star wars the clone wars animated series and dave baloney. He shepherded this. You know this universe. The star wars universe through what's five years of of clone wars and then four years of rebels. And then it comes time to release the sequel trilogy and they get j.j. abrams to come in and do it. And it's as if neither j.j. abrams door. Catherine kathleen kennedy had seen any of the day colonie world building that had gone on for a fucking decade. They didn't use any of it. It had nothing to do with this world. that had been so carefully crafted. Okay so there was one good film from my perspective. That was rogue one. But all the truth. That's true absolute garbage. Then then john. Fabio who had been directing films for disney big films technically sophisticated films. Like the you know the remake of the lion king jungle book the sort of thing he goes to a biker at disney and he says look. This is not working. she strives to. Do you know this happened. No this is well documented. Jon favreau is the executive producer. I mean he's the show runner on the laureate right so we get the story in. Which is jon favreau and dave baloney and here we have these stories told about this mandatory and bounty hunter that are clearly set in this fully fleshed out day baloney star wars universe and it's a massive success people. Love it baby yoda everywhere. And what else comes out of this. This big strong powerful female character of kara dune what does the kathleen kennedy faction do bullshit talking points to portray her as a nazi and it was all in the service of destroying is afro dave baloney version of star wars. I agree with you there. I think what happened. There was absolute pants on bullshit. I i don't think it's gina carano. Yes yes she. I you know i. I probably would not agree with what she said. But i do not think that it rose to the level of any kind of cancelable offense Paired with her co star in the things that he said he made all kinds of nazi tweets and things but it was all in the service of a left wing agenda and his were much. More egregious yeah Pedro echo yes him. Yep so You know. I don't have pedro. Pascal offensive tweets committed to memory seeing sites. I genuinely don't know what was he was he. Lets google it real quick. pass kelly. Punk pedro pascal. Who plays the man to learn. Disney plus was not fired for his post instagram comparing trump supporters to nazis and confederates.

"If you wanna to solve your problems kareem or anybody. Who's listening. Just get netflix documentary about you. Oh that's it. That's so easy. I wanna know how did how did this man who was at the time barely in her life at aw sea from what you know the way they shaped it and everything. How was he able to gain control of her finances and career like yet. He's her father but like where the fuck was he until this all started happening like that by itself seems super fishy to me Yeah i'm not really sure. I haven't really watched the documentary yet and i'm not sure exactly. When he became in charge. I remember a few years ago or something like that. He was trying to switch conservative ship over general affairs to somebody else. So i don't know how that all played in or or or where it's at. Well like the mandalorian star. Gina carano the thick and muscular hero of the series. She is not coming back. Gina was let go from her role by disney after repeated comparisons on social media to being a republican today to being a jewish person during the holocaust completely parallel. Obviously not like what the. How would you say that like. How are you in hollywood and know all these jewish people and say something that stupid about jewish people like even if you actually like what. It's crazy to me. The republican the conservative. They're thinking is very narrow and they'd like to portray themselves as the victim and she's got a victim mentality and maybe another thing. They stole from black people. Because black people of always been trendy. We've been complaining about our oppression. And they're still it's understandable. They did music. They did it with rock music. Like all of that so yeah. Whatever but with g. Jon favreau the director of the series and by the way john can basically do whatever he wants because he's single handedly saving star wars disney. Who wrote a big fat check to george lucas and then said oh my god. Don't catch the check and so they're stuck with this. Which is a lot of those movies where bombs people like. What the fuck is this bullshit. You know and ceo made money. The guy john boyega said you know the whole franchise thing super acis. I don't have anything to do with it. They destroyed my character. There's potential with my character and they just they just cut the legs out from underneath it. He was supposed to be a black storm trooper who was four sensitive and became a jeddah and instead they just threw his character out the. Yeah well and this is why like finding the balance between art and commerce is so hard because you wanna make something that's quality but also we gotta sell these t shirts we gotta sell these mugs right which brings us to before we move on. So anyways jon favreau he. I guess gina has been doing this all along right and cancel. Culture is the idea that you know once you do one wrong move. That's the end of don't agree with what i say. Now ansel and part of it is like gina all this time has been you know very combative very hostile publicly against you know the very people that she's working with and and the very values of the project she's involved with so disney has given her a lot of chances in jon favreau said like i really believe in this Performer and please keep burn my series. Which makes me question..

"Young. Hey thanks for having me. I really like talking about. Star Wars. Yeah, and if you haven't seen Brian every week on the site has has like A. I WANNA call it a recap because I feel he gets much more than a recap. Would you call your your column about the mandatory in every Friday? You know I, kind of call it a review in that it does what I think or it it aims to do what I hope. Good criticism does is just shine lights on aspects of the. The show that people wouldn't have noticed whether that's in the filmmaking or the cinematic references or the mythological references and star wars. So I don't know, I, just call it a review but. Maybe. It's a little bit more depth than that to in this morning's one is like what two thousand words yeah just kept coming and I feel like I still in hit everything. And it's crazy to this year or at least for the first episode. Disney is not providing screeners for press. So you know all of us are actually did you stay up till midnight or did you watch it this morning? No I definitely watch this morning because it didn't come online until midnight Pacific Time which is two am my time and I'm getting too old to do that. I was up at midnight and I watched the thing and I was like I'll just go to bed after I couldn't sleep. I was up till three am just. Checking twitter reading up on things I. I was just like amped up. So bright you saw last right? No. I mean, in my time zone, it's one am in like Brad I'm getting too old for that sort of thing. So I got up at five actually to watch it and well, and I knew if I watched it last night, I was going to sit down in half to write my my review then. Go and I knew I wouldn't sleep. So I got up early in and got it done. Got It over to. To you all as fast as I possibly could. ANYWAYS, we're all on an even keel here. No one gets information ahead of time twenty twenty has sucked. But at least we have new season of the member Orien- right Maybe. It's over lining. I feel like it's the most excited I've been in a long time last night watching that episode Okay. Before you into the heavy spoilers I mean I wouldn't listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the episode so I'd go watch that on Disney right now but before we get to that, let's give our. Thoughts brief reactions and I'll start off by. Saying. This is how you do fan service. Right like Vincent gets bad rap I think that word is kind of used as a derogatory word in in certain ways but it was cool you know to. I feel like a lot of the stuff that was being done in this episode was not references for references sake it was the further story and then like when their work like interesting fan nods and reference it, you kind of have to connect the dots wasn't like. Oh look at that Blah Blah Blah. It wasn't like very obvious about it The production budget felt much bigger than season one for me. I I I. Love that. This was fifty four minutes where most of the season one episode where much shorter I think like most of them are closer to the thirty minutes. I. Guess. So. It was just it was so epic. So Good I. Guess My only negative that I want to say is I th I. Wish I had more of a role in this. Upset he was kind of like. The site I I mean I guess he's always sidekick, but he really didn't have much to do. So but I was really impressed with Jon favreau in what he was able to accomplish here. This is the first time you know he's obviously the creator of the show. He's a writer of the show, but this is the producer, but this is the first time he directed an episode. So Brian, what what are your brief thoughts? So I really loved the cinematic feel of it and it felt very George Lucas Very Spielberg and I'm sure we'll talk about that. Later. But I I'll be honest like I. Sort of as excited I was for what I saw at the ending I was also dismayed And it Kinda left me with like a bittersweet feeling because I've really enjoyed. BOBA FETT being dead. And getting. It's kind of like the feeling that a lot of people had with thinking ray was a nobody and then. J. j.j Abrams comes along. Well I don't I mean like I there was easier for me to swallow like I. Really. You only had years of that right? Like only two years of like thinking about that was the reality. Yeah, we've had a lot longer to to feel that Boba Fett was dead, but I really am appreciative of the fact that they worked in all of the stuff that Chuck Wendy get created around the armor and Cobb Vance to meet the elephants character that really. The that that has been the story for a long time and if they are incorporating that, I'm still not I. Don't know maybe maybe people know other things that I, don't but I'm still holding hope that it's not actually Boba Fett and it's some other random clone but I know that that's a long shot. Yeah. We'll get to that later. Do you have anything else to say in your brief thoughts? Just, it was fun. It was really fun and I haven't had that fun sitting. Had that much fun sitting down and watching something like this in a long time probably since last season well, Nelson's clone wars. Yeah Brad what are your thoughts on the by the way? Are we call this like to exit one or is this chapter nine like they're calling a chapter nine? I mean we'd be calling it both. Okay. Okay. What did you think of Chapter Nine? I realized I ought to fund with I'm I feel like I, wish that maybe it wasn't quite as long because even though it was a good episode I I felt a lot better when the episodes were between like thirty in forty minutes it just makes it feel a little bit breezy. especially since you know even though this season premiere did have some interesting new details to reveal. It felt more like an episode that was from like the middle of a season as opposed to season Premiere only because I didn't feel like that. There was much advancement as far as like the over. Arching plot you know it's like it's it's just a basic. It's like. Well, guess I'm taking this kid back to where you know to his people and you know, and here's another adventure of the week scenario and granted that's. The. Like I said there are big reveals I i. always like. I feel like season premieres should have you know something a little bit bigger and granted you know the whole idea of trying to take down a crate dragon is a big thing. I mean that's that's a big impressive effect that you're not likely to get in an average middle episode even a man to Laura and you know so that was a big deal but I don't know I don't want to say that disappointed because I never bored I still have a lot of fun with it but I guess I was just expecting a little bit more of an advancement with the the serial aspect of the story. That was my main complaint about season one was it was a lot of like. You know mission adventure of the week and it wasn't a lot of like there isn't really much of a overall like cereal plot of the show yet but I'm hoping that kicks into gear the season. What are you guys yet because I don't I don't mind the adventure of the week format necessarily but I just wish that the progress on the overarching stereo part of it was a little bit more media gas in each episode especially since these are very short seasons. You know it's interesting that it kind of depends on the scale you're looking at it from to right like in terms of the mandatory and in his story with seeking out man delorean's to return the asset to its people whether those are Djeddai or other creatures of its kind. It doesn't. It doesn't move the ball forward very much at all but when you pull back and look at the star. Wars universe. What it does with Craig Dragons in Tuscan raiders tattooing and Boba Fett absolutely does move that ball forward. So it's interesting to watch them balance between both those masters that they have to. Work for. I think that's fair. But I but I also think the progress of those balls in question is like I mean, how much? How much deeper are we into star wars lower by spending some extra time with Tuscan raiders in a crate dragon like it's not necessarily hugely revealing stuff that like provides a lot more depth into the Star Wars universe. It's more interesting details of stuff that we were already familiar with. Okay guys we we've got nine minutes which serve ref- reactions. Get into this.

Dissecting the 2019 Version of 'The Lion King'

"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there

Disney, Nala Donald Glover And James Earl Jones discussed on Bald Movies

"Latest live action cash grab the Lion King directed by Jon Favreau and you know I never would have guessed that the man who breathed life into a multi billion dollar franchise but taking a third tier marvel property like iron man and taking passion for source material I I never thought that he you would brought that same passion to the Lion King and you know what I was right because in my opinion this is like the most of all the pointless Disney remakes this is the most pointless and the one that comes off the shabby shabby as compared to its source material Jim. What did you think and maybe talk about your personal relationship with the Lion King of any so I think the Jon Favreau had quite the passion for the source material because he just recycled it and not in like the way where you I don't know take something you have? It's old fashioned into something new. That's useful in a different way. This was the lion king like this is the most Lion King Lion King movie <hes> outside outside of the Lion King I mean the thing is is is the lion king. Only all of the animals were injected. The Boat Docks Yeah Animation <hes> that's. That's the only thing that was different about this movie in any way right. There's one hint of new song none of the plot points or any different than the lion king you remember from ninety four. It's all the same it's just a it's just a cross aboard worse version yeah and completely like you said unnecessary. I think this is like the thing I liked about. Aladdin is Kinda took it a direction and modernized it updated five the problem. The parts were little creaky and little stale where we've moved on as a society they've kind of you know propped it up and they didn't try to like out Robin Williams Robin Williams on the genie whereas this it's like. I don't understand how the animation tests came back for. These animals father wasn't like okay we gotta ditched his documentary approach and have these lions smile. Give him some fucking eyebrows house allow on the show some gene grief and rage because we know I've seen the lion king many many many many times and there's a couple of scenes where you're you're geared up to anticipate and it's exactly. The same lines exactly the same framing except for Simba's faces a grim frozen mask that is capable of showing anything other than way honestly my house cats more expressive. I that's the thing that really really surprised me and I saw a listen problems with that in like some of the trailers I saw but like I don't know I mean it's this isn't a bad film in fact honestly the first five minutes. I actually started thinking well. Maybe I'm wrong because it gave me the exact same goosebumps that intro of the Classic Lion King Circle Life Yeah <hes> but even then it's like there's a couple of parts or like you know like there's a couple of things that you you know you can do in animation like when you blink and step forward and sun you can have a baby draft. Blankets is in this. I mean if they did that with his baby. Draft who the fuck knows because baby drafts don't blink in the sun it turns out it's almost it felt like one of those Old Walt Disney movies like <hes> <hes> what is the journey home or whatever where the actually take a real poppy in a real cat kitten and or they have like little bound very tightly homered ban yeah they make a movie around around like their natural expressions and stuff <hes> but there's just I don't know I mean I didn't really pay any attention to the casting like I didn't know anybody <hes> and there's <hes> great great cat like you know the Simba Nala Donald Glover beyond say knowles stats a fucking dynamite combination like John Oliver as the Domo's as zoo is pretty inspired casting the return of James Earl Jones James Jones. You can't do better than that. I thought that <hes> Billy Eichner as to Moan was really good eye Eric Andre I know seth th- Rogan is Okay Yeah Eric Andrea one of the hyenas I I mean I said it's just I mean we can talk about it the scene by scene point by point and the trailer earn the spoiler section like do I want to on this one because if you've seen the Lion King you've seen the entirety of this movie. It's just like they changed a damn thing. No they range all all the life yeah. Apparently the animators didn't get to note that the scene. Can you feel the love tonight actually takes place at night not at noon just many many references to it being evening and being nights and then it. Blend smoothly into another night scenes really pivotal and what the fuck what the fuck why are they why are they having animated these lions in broad daylight. I don't know because you can. They're more expressive in the day. I don't ever more expressive in the day. That's the only thing I think of is the other thing is speaking of that. I defy you to tell any of those lionesses apart <hes> yeah lights off in the cartoon version. There are subtle variations in color facial expression oppression. I mean they're all kind of unique individuals. At least you know the Nairobi and Nala and the ones actually have speaking roles this like they literally all look the same and when Simba's fighting scarred there's many time I lost track of WHO Simba who was scar and they found it hilarious that these battles are so bloodless. I don't know how you get a name like scar. If nothing can cut your skin I know 'cause like it'd be like it's cannon that Mu Fossa awesome fucked him up the part of his ear off and really hideously scarred him so but yeah you can't do that when <hes> although to realistic you can't do I was kind of put off by the mature subject matter. They're they're. They're saying the F. A. R._T.. Word heard they are in case. Let that slide through yeah yeah really risk and is this P._G.. I don't know it probably is it wouldn't be stupid like whatever the whatever the original was here. It's the same because it is is the same so so. Maybe I'm a little harness movie but I actually this was the very first Walt Disney animated movie I ever saw because I my mom was a religious nut job the type of religion I mean there's lots of different ways to be a religious just not job as a parent but <hes> her particular nutjob Orie was magic anything magic and I'll add in allow <hes> sleeping beauty no little rain when the fucking sea he which get Outta here those legs are mad. I remember the look my sister and I gave each other when Rafiki started doing medicine Monkey Shit and we're like Oh God and my mom's is started twitching like us a spiritism. Does a spiritism like she's please do not storm out of that we we. We begged her to take her come on the line game. There's no magic there's no warlock in this fucking monkey starts. Doing you know the the magic adjacent shit he starts doing like some kind of weird monkey and melon based divination a nation he starts doing martial arts karate at the end which is the other kind of spiritism adjacent but it was near and dear to my heart because I that's the very first and I remember just like just like being just completely amazed at the opening act. And really moved when Fossa dies and like also we had that movie I was the only Disney animated movie for a long long time that we had on V._H._S. and my brother and sister and I kind of wore it out over the course of a summer so I'd fucking love this the Super N._S.. Lion King Okay. I don't think I ever made it past the third level because it's freakishly hard but there's a lot I have a lot of affection for this source material and Dan I just to me they should have cleaned it up that those prints as shiny as they could make him they should've completely redone to sound and just re released it because this is just you know Lion King's Tinton movie. This is like six attitude execution of that movie. This is a high school musical version of the Broadway version of the Lion King. I could see that yeah. I didn't find it offensive. I found that it was in in maybe everything except for the expressive -ness of the characters was just as effective as the original was but yeah it was entirely unnecessary. This is a fairly obvious cash crap. I didn't didn't feel that way coming out of Aladdin. I know a lot of people didn't feel that way coming out of beauty and the beast and you know the the Dumbo did People Watch Dumbo. Nobody watched dumbo right everywhere. I heard it was pretty fucking shitty. Yeah I didn't see it. I didn't either her because I heard it was pretty shitty and guess what you've got Milan coming down the pike. I don't I've never seen Milan. I mean it's a fine. It's it's it's probably one of the lesser of the new golden age of Disney like it's kind of their into Pocahontas level level where it's like animation still amazing songs that nearly as catchy core concept not as solid and I've heard that they're actually a skewing the songs more or less in Milan and just like a straight like a straight drama weird. I could be wrong on that but I just. I don't know I it. It's it's not it's so cynical. I said cash grab because it's it's not it's not just a blatant redundant cash grab. It's just a pace. These does relentless Klis pace that they're that they're doing them into. I don't understand why we need. Five remakes of Disney live action Disney movies in a single year and I don't even know if it might be more than that like. I don't know if they've got. They're going to sneak something out. Pass them along before Christmas. I don't know I don't know they just cast a little mermaid. I I don't know how far that's that that's behind but who's playing Sebastian. I don't know okay. That's my biggest question about that movie. Maybe Ahmed Best Okay Yeah sure thanks Yeah Sebastian yeah he so Whoopi Whoopi in the under the sea yeah love song so I got some more stuff to say 'cause I got. I actually Kinda WanNa actually KINDA WANNA break it down so you might say because he's keep on saying that it's shot for shot for Lion King and that's my biggest problem is is that I don't think it is. I think they're I mean they try not shot but beat for beat. Story is one hundred percent every bit of the staging is is noticeably inferior and worse than than the than the the original and some of the things that like what they did to be prepared is a God damn criminal travesty. That's one of my favorite songs from the Lion King and I've never seen a more dispirited parroted punting of a musical number then than I have. I don't know Jimmy Nicholson who I considered. The foremost expert on Disney films on the Internet suggested that there's also a muted quality due to vocal performances like everything everyone's kind of like instead of like even James Earl Jones instead of just like because I remember I I can I can hear in my head exactly how he says. Nobody messes is with the year old band or I can. I can hear like they. They just didn't quite nail it and her theory is they had to have all the actor scale back because if they were as a motive as the original lion king it would look wildly out of place with the animation style and it's like the one thing that you could have gone ten for ten and let like Donald Glover and beyond say and James Will Jones uncork and actually you know she would tell Chew Hotel Jia for <hes> who I think is an amazing actor. He got the world's most laid back quiet unassuming scar and it's just a shame because he's trying to follow giant. Jeremy Irons plays one of the the all time Great Disney villain voices and it just. I don't know

Spider-Man: Homecoming | Marvel Month

"Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big picture a conversation show at least for the time being about the marvel cinematic universe. I am joined today by your friendly neighborhood, film critic and ringer contributor, Adam name and Adam Hello, how are you? Hey, how're you doing Adam? You are friendly and neighborly because we are here to talk about a movie called Spiderman colon homecoming. This is a latter stages. MC you entrant and unlikely one largely because for the longest time Spiderman was just not a part of the new and when this movie happened. It was a surprise to many in the fact that he was integrated so effectively into this universe. Makes it kind of a fun movie to talk about because it fits into the big picture and a lot of the things we've been discussing throughout this marvel month, but it's also just a hell of a fund standalone movie when I reached out to you a couple of weeks ago about participating in this project. This is the movie you chose. And I thought that was so interesting, and you never told me why. So why do you want to talk about homecoming? I thought it'd be just really good and confusing to talk about homecoming in the shed. Oh of the other pop cultural product called homecoming true came out this week. I thought that'd be really fun. I thought we were talking about beyond say, no this is perfect for SEO. This is great. No. I mean, I I like talking about this film because I think it's a strong one. I wrote about it for the ringer when it came out and thought that everything you said about it sort of returning Spiderman to the intellectual property fold with something that it kind of allies itself in a very clever way, the whole movie is sort of almost about like Spiderman trying out for the marvel cinematic universe and trying out for the adventures and trying out for the audience, and it it has that self reflexive quality at it's not obnoxious. Like most of the time. It's quite clever. I sort of thought there was something about it. I mean, all the marvel movies even tell me what you think of this there. They have to have all these surface differences and all these surface, peculiarities nudity secrecy, but underneath they have to lock together like a puzzle or voltron like you can't really make one different. And so this one. Kind of has the friendly neighborhood surface on the outsider surface in the underdog surface. And I found that all like, very charming and pleasant, and then the fact that it really is just a piece of product that locks together to the rest of them in this case didn't bug me. The way that it may be bugs me with some of the other ones. Yeah. Even just revisiting it this week. I found myself surprised that should Tari alien technology was a significant part of this movie. Which is of course, if int- part of this MC, you and everything that we've been talking about because the first time I saw it. I felt like I could have been any old alien technology could have been from an Amblin movie in nineteen eighty seven. You know what I mean? Yeah. And you know, you don't really actually need Robert Downey junior there. There's pleasure in having Tony stark there, and Jon Favreau, kind of babysitting him, and, you know, the the the parallels that has the first ironman movie because it becomes a very different kind of origin story. Like thank God. It's not a Spiderman origin like he's bit by spider. And there's and there's all that stuff. But it. About him like becoming an official superhero. Right. And there's all kinds of scenes that parallel the way that same story is told in ironman right up to the ending being kind of a parody of iron man announcing himself to the world, whereas, you know, here Peter chooses not to you don't need all that stuff. But and then the Qatari technology. You're right. It could be anything. But I like movie that simultaneously stands alone. And has these bits of connected to the larger story, and I find the way it connects larger story in some ways really witty like the cell phone footage of the big civil war fight. Yes. That's really funny. It's clever. I

"Netflix will not be picking up the option for season three of iron fist, but you will still see Danny rand crossover in some of the others and actually a defenders to is not off the table. So we will see Danny ran and possibly Jessica Jones. Another defenders. Probably Luke cage. They work so well together, and maybe we'll get a heroes for hire spin off, but there will be no more immortal iron fist solo series. I'm the. Protect your line. Yes. Danny, we know who you are. The aero verse has huge crossovers every fall. This fall, no, no different. We are going to be introduced to the city of Gotham and a new character to the aero verse bat woman, they cast ruby rose to be bat woman, and they've shown some costume pictures of her and looks like they took them straight out of the comic book. This is right off the pages of DC. Ruby rose has the look. She has the acting chops the arrow verse. All those shows are crazy popular. I'm loving that they're expanding, especially with Gotham going away. CW is expanding their CW superhero universe, so might not be long before we start seeing some more of these guys in their own series. DND players. If you remember a while back, they added a new class. Old spice came up with the gentlem-. In class based off of their commercial character? Well, not to be outdone. They've made another new class. Not old spice is just made up by the fans called the murder Hobo class. If you've ever played DND, you know, the murder hobos are the players who just want to maim kill rape, torture for no reason whatsoever. Just do it in cause chaos. They have made their own class with class defining rules. Now you can actually download this from DM guild, which is it's probably not going to be considered canon for DND, but being on DM guild is probably the next best thing. If you're DM is allowing it, you might try this murder Hobo class. If that's not for you, get the old spice gentlemen class there I've played the gentlemen class. It's pretty cool. You should try it out, murder Hobo class, not into that type of character. A lot of people are, but, hey. Now you've got rules for it by now. You've heard that Disney has fired James Gunn the guy who wrote and directed the guardians of the galaxy hugely popular movies. He was fired over some tweets. He made ten years ago or so. They were made in jest, but they were taken, I guess, by Disney's seriously. They didn't like the content a lot of dark humor that they didn't think was funny. So they've, they fired him well, as soon as they did that, all the other companies were lined up at his door knocking and the one he answered for was DC. The DC universe is going to have James Gunn attached to the new suicide squad to movie. He's already proven. He can write group movies with guardians of the galaxy in just do a killer job. It hasn't been decided if he's going to direct suicide squad to yet. But just the fact that he's writing it is it's mind blowing. We're going to see probably the best suicide squad incarnation. You could think of Batiste day Batista's already said that he wants to come over. If James Gunn is directing it and play a character. I just I can't wait for this to see a movie be as popular or some of the marvel movies would be great. I would love to see James Gunn grab this and run with it and just do a whole series of DC movies. So congratulations, James Gunn. Congratulations. DC marvel. I hope the guy you've replacing with does just as well. Let's finish this up with some Star Wars. Let's start with the mandatory and show by John Fabbro. If he don't know already, the Disney play channel is picked up a big budget, Star Wars series that they're letting Jon Favreau writing direct. Jon Favreau has done an excellent job with all the other stuff. He's worked on from iron man, two zero through gemology all the way up to jungle book the live action one. Handing him the reins of this in him picking a character or a classic character. So I contacted MandA Laurean can't wait man in case you didn't know Django fit Boba fett are the main delorean's you're probably more familiar with or maybe some the ones from the clone war series.

"It's going to be interesting to see how Disney how Disney makes their play with this because and that was not a pun, but Disney play is it could be a Netflix killer. It could be a, they have enough horsepower enough IP in enough money to throw behind this that they have a legitimate chance. I'm gonna say it becoming the number two streaming service. So right now, technically a my, I might be mistaken, but isn't the only thing really confirmed for the streaming services clone horse. So they got clone wars. They have Jon Favreau live action, Star Wars series. They've got a Dumbo. I'm trying to remember the monsters Inc thing. They put in a bunch of the so I was wrong.

I go Disney with a free trial of DC so I can watch all with a free enough trial to watch young Justice and maybe sometimes, yes, yes. So, yeah, I'm excited for young Justice than probably any Disney show ever. So my money's gonna go to DC.
