…About Live-Action Disney Remakes

A lot of people have a cynical attitude about Disney remaking their older animated movies in live-action. It’s really just part of the larger cynical attitude against remakes in general. I give my thoughts about them in this episode.

 

…About Spoilers

A lot of people care a lot about movies and TV shows.  Do they care too much, though?  When do you cross the line between “fan” and “fanatic”?

I mention an article about spoilers in this podcast.  You can read it here:  http://nerdbastards.com/2019/04/29/nerdom-and-the-bizarre-culture-around-being-spoiler-free/

…About His Favorite Phase of the MCU

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is over 20 movies long with a dozen TV shows and miniseries to its name. It’s about to finish its third “phase” and move into a new one. But Phase One still is and probably will remain my favorite phase.

…About Star Wars Episode IX

This is a podcast not about how *good* each of the Star Wars movies are or even about how much I personally like them, but about how excited I’ve been for each of them…and why the movie I’m least excited to see is “The Rise of Skywalker”.

…About Being A Grown-Up Kid

I turn 38 in a couple of weeks.  If you think that’s going to stop me from loving the same kinds of things I loved as a kid, then you’ve got another think coming.  An adult is merely a kid who has reached a certain age, and a kid is merely an adult who hasn’t reached that age.  No adult should feel bad about enjoying things that are “meant for kids”.
