Speaking of The Madnalorian giving people what they think they want. One of the things I loved about Season 1 is how relatively unmired it is by the central Star Wars movie narrative. I was fully expecting it to pump its brakes every 10 minutes to spotlight some heretofore unknown connection to the Skywalker saga by answering questions I didn't ask (See Also: Solo.) It was content enough to throw some Darksabre fanservice in at the end and call it a day. In doing so it deftly avoids the "Small Galaxy" trap that pretty much every other piece of Star Wars media has fallen into since Phantom Menace and it's all the better for it. With Season 2 all but confirming Ahsoka Tano and Boba Fett I fear that might not be the case much longer.

58:25 I really don't get why the big studios aren't lobbying harder against these moronic politicians downplaying the pandemic. Tax cuts can _not_ be worth the same as such a huge source of revenue as hype around their products.

This has been the most enjoyable film skewering I've seen in a long time. The Devil All the Time feels like someone wrote a savvy and clever genre film specifically intended for fans of the genre to enjoy just how far it pushes the conventions, and then somehow an entire production team managed to read the script with not one of them realising it wasn't deadly serious realism. The comparison to Prisoners is a good point, because while that was a good film, it's so deep into its own conventions that if it instead started talking like they had written the Great American Novelfilm it would have gone beyond terrible into outright laughable. Seeing Robert Pattinson in a film where he understands what the film is better than the other actors is no surprise since he is VERY good, but seeing him in a film where he obviously understands it better than the damned director is an indictment.

I felt like the presence of the voiceover narration largely fixed any problem you get from having the movie be "about" a different character for the first quarter. And it's really true to the feel of southern lit, so there's that.

Read some Eudora Welty or Tennessee Williams or something. It's from the same kind of tradition of stories told in the form of gossip and anecdotes with historical asides that focus on any one character's defining weirdness.

What Darren said about rural Sligo is also true about Ohio. I am a native Ohioan and when I am asked in a corporate group "get to know you" session to tell everyone something interesting about myself, I always respond by saying I went to the same jr. high school as Charles Manson.

Bit of an odd topic to ask you to look into, but the Owl House just finished up two weeks ago, and it was pretty awesome, and not just as the next step up from She-Ra in terms of LGBTQ representation.

Devil All the Time was fantastic. I described it as 'Cormac McCarthy with a soft landing'. All of that forgotten America nihilism but with a less-than-nihilistic ending for once.

Holy heck Jack, I just want to thank you for making a point to re-state the name of that film you'd been talking about. I actually did catch it the first time around, but that's something that drives me crazy in a lot of podcasts and such, when you get 15 minutes into a discussion of a game or something and you're finally sold on it, but they never again say its name, and it's a pain to cycle back to find the point they brought it up originally.

Antebellum was terrible. I just watched it. I'm mad for two reasons. One, it's not a horror movie. It tried to market itself as a horror film, and though it was horrific it was not horror. Two, it tries to capitalize on current social turmoil without saying anything significant. It milks a very important cow for nothing. It is M Night on sedatives and without heart. Bob says it's interesting- it really isn't. It's just a collection of ideas that fall flat and some really terrible dialogue. Some of the performances are really stellar, but the actors couldn't save this film, which is a shame because the performances are powerful.

It's also how it's made that undercuts the issue. It's one of those movies made like a magic trick, where you show all your cards to the audience, get them wondering, and then show them something they never expected the cards to do. That's one of the strongest things cinema can do, and it makes a lot of good films into great films. But even though the part everyone remembers and celebrates in those films is the moment the magic trick comes together, the reason the trick can make them great films is because they were already good films without the trick. This is a magic trick that forgot to be a film first, and there is a reason magic tricks don't go two hours long. If you watch his spoilers-in review he's also much more critical. You can't explain why the film isn't very good without going into huge detail about the surprise. You also can't explain why they do much less with the real-ness of the premise than it seems without giving up the surprise. If you're going to use a live social issue that has traumatised many real people, and you're not going to use it to DO something, you had better make damn sure you are making a film good enough to justify it. Nobody's angry about Schindler's List using the holocaust and mostly saying just 'holocaust bad, doing the right thing hard' because they made a very good film. Antebellum isn't that good.

Ah man. I kinda wanted to see it. It sounded interesting from what they were saying. Parroting current social commentary trends is rarely interesting to me. Like you’re not shedding light on an issue we don’t know a lot about. Or making us see it from a unique perspective... Just repeating the same social message over and over

From the trailers for Antebellum it looked like a cross between Get Out and (what I know of, not been able to watch it yet) Westworld. I still really want to see it and thank Bob for not spoiling it

I just watched it. It's not horror. It doesn't even come close to get out. It's really clumsy and it exploits some really important ideas without taste or any artistic lens. I don't usually hate movies but this one was offensive. I would have asked for my money back.

They didn't even mention that David Lynch was originally courted to direct 'Return of The Jedi' but decided to direct 'Dune' instead (replacing Jordorowski). It must have just slipped their minds.

Everybody knows that. And Lynch did not replace Jodorowsky. Jodorowsky wanted to make Dune once but never got the money together.

Possible suggestion for Jack: If you hadn't mentioned the movie name in the Spoiler Warning, you could have saved it as a canned recording for all spoilers going forward. Dunno how much time making it each time takes you , but hey.

I'd say if Black Widow absolutely needs to come out before WandaVision and Falcon and The Winter Soldier to avoid spoiling anything then releasing it on Disney Plus is really their only option unless they want to delay those shows as well.

I don't know... Is Jack not taking any of this seriously or is he trying to look like he's not taking it seriously? There's 2 people trying to have an honest and in-depth conversation and then there's Jack sitting in the middle trying to work in tortured puns or making childish hand gestures while the other two are talking. Same thing with the slightly civil war episodes, minus the gestures.

@nick chavarria Not exactly. Like you I enjoy the escapist shows outside of Zero Punctuation. If I didn't I wouldn't bother complaining and just stop watching them instead. But what happens to the escapist once Yahtzee decides to leave and build his own thing? He's got the fanbase to do it and Jim Sterling has shown that it can be done very effectively. Plus he's a dad now so there's a much stronger incentive to build something of his own and not be reliant on others. Jack hast the potential to be just as strong of a personality within the escapist. But not this way.

Timo Kampwerth So are you trying to say that viewership is being affected because jack isn’t taking things a serious as he should?

@nick chavarria but that being "Jack like always" is kind of my point. I get what he's going for, to give it some lightheartedness, but I don't think it's working as intended because it often comes across as dismissive or disinterested. There is an agrument that can be made for it not really mattering since the escapist channel pretty much IS Yahtzee at this point when you look at the views with most videos clocking in somewhere between 5k and 20k views and then ZP with 280k on the low end. But I'd argue that it would be even more important for those other shows to gain some tracktion and I don't think his interpretation of lightheartedness is doing it any favors, especially given that when he puts in the work and research he can be an extraordinarily interesting guy to listen to. As an example, listen to the post civil war podcasts. He drops the "showmanship" there and immediately becomes SO much more engaging

@nick chavarria You're really not hearing that? granted, the gesturing is somewhat subdued in this one but when I listen to this, slightly civil war or the weekly show, I don't get the feeling that he's even remotely as prepared, or serious as whoever he's talking to.

I've said it a lot: Star Wars is at its best when it's just "Star Wars stuff". Blasters, vehicles, droids, the Force; even throw lightsabers in there. Just make new stories. Following the drama of one or two characters and the people immediately surrounding them has gotten very stale.

Interesting take. Seems like once the prequels and sequels got going, the writers and directors have tried to recreate the sweeping story arcs of ESB instead of the swashbuckling charm of the original (or New Hope if you will).
