Hereditary in IMAX, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, Conan O'Brien Must Go, and More

On the April 25, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film staff writer Bill Bria to gather around the virtual water cooler to talk about what they’ve been watching lately.In the Water Cooler:What we’ve been Watching:Bill saw Hereditary in IMAX, the first two Maze Runner movies, and Cool as Ice.Ben caught up with The First Omen and Immaculate, watched all of Conan O’Brien Must Go, and saw Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid. Listener e-mail: Lorenzo from Sarasota, FL, wrote in about our recent episode where we talked about our favorite vampire films. Lorenzo says “both of my favorite live-action vampire movies were mentioned, but my number 1 favorite vampire movie is actually an animated movie, and I wanted to give it a shout out: The Batman vs. Dracula.” He calls it “underseen and underrated,” and explains that though it’s set in the continuity of an animated series called The Batman that debuted in 2004, “the film is a standalone story that can easily also be enjoyed even without the context of the show.” He says it’s “atmospheric and creepy,” it stars Peter Stormare as the voice of Dracula, and it even gives us Vampire Joker, with Tom Kenny’s Penguin basically filling the Renfield role and delivering comedy gold throughout.”All the other stuff you need to know:You can find more about all the stories we mentioned on today’s show at slashfilm.com, and linked inside the show notes./Film Daily is published every weekday, bringing you the most exciting news from the world of movies and TV as well as deeper dives into the great features from slashfilm.com. You can subscribe to /Film Daily on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.Send your feedback, questions, comments, concerns, and mailbag topics to us at [email protected].

Drew Goddard Heads Into The Matrix, Tim Robinson Gets an HBO Show, and More

On the April 3, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editor Brad Oman to talk about the latest film and TV news.In The News:Whoa: New Matrix Movie Coming From Director Drew GoddardOne Of The Funniest Guys Alive Is Getting An HBO Series, As He DeservesCivil War Director Alex Garland Is Taking A Long, Long Break From FilmmakingKingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes' Running Time Sets A Record For The FranchiseHorror Director Scott Derrickson Is Remaking A Classic Noir ThrillerListener email from YiFeng from Boston, Mass:I hate to bug you, but the recent podcast conversations about disc rot & backing up physical media have some misinformation that I'm hoping other listeners will write in and correct, but here are my corrections:1. Hollywood/MPA issue commercial discs that are copyrighted protected by CSS, AACS, BD+, ROM Mark and probably many more techniques. You can't insert a disc into your computer and use a file explorer and just copy the disc - you will get an error.2. If you want to backup ANYTHING from the disc, you will need to bypass copyright protection by using tools such as Redfox and DVDfab. Please note that at the time of this writing, US DMCA laws stipulates that you *DO* have a right to backup, but the tools used to rip discs are illegal, which is why all of them are from outside of America:https://lifehacker.com/is-it-legal-to-rip-a-dvd-that-i-own-5978326It's a bit of a gray/catch-22 type of scenario. Just a warning there.3. Handbrake.fr is only a tool that will re-compress & shrink your disc files. For example a Blu-ray may contain a movie file that is 35 gigabytes, but you can use Handbrake to compress that down to 10 gigabytes - that is what the tool does. Handbrake and compression tools do *NOT* rip discs as they do not bypass the copyright protections put in place by the MPA.4. Finally, regarding disc rot, the Library of Congress has a study on that from ~14+yrs ago but it's still relevant: https://www.loc.gov/preservation/scientists/projects/cd_longevity.html#:~:text=Statistical%20analysis%20of%20the%20EOL,reach%20EOL%20within%2010%20yearsBasically the net sum is it is extremely small and that study encompassed computer CD ROM (beyond just movie discs). If anything, the disc qualities of today's Quality Assessment far surpasses that. I'd wager to say it's probably less than 1% if the library of Congress performs a study today. Most of the time, if you read the study, the rot has to do with users storing in high humidity, non-environmentally controlled locations. If you care for it, the disc will outlast humanity. It is (after all) plastic and we all know now that plastic is basically not going to degrade for hundreds of years (green issue is another whole separate conversation). Are there manufacturing errors? Absolutely, but they are extremely miniscule. Here is an example from Criterion below, but they still offer the program to replace the discs:https://www.criterion.com/current/posts/3317-exchanging-defective-discsHopefully, this clears up some confusion. Quick summary is you can rip but you'll need to bypass copy protection, and disc rot is basically a non-issue.Actually, that brings up another interesting point:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_degradationLet's say you are Warner Brothers and you have the full uncompress filmmaker files of the camera capture or dcp on your servers, THOSE FILES WILL ALSO ROT even if they are on server/enterprise-grade hard drive! There needs to be a process of not just making backup copies, but double checking that the data they have and also the backup copies are still not impacted by the rot. CURRENTLY, most enterprise data technicians do NOT have a process to account for data-rot. 99% of the enterprise companies do not even think about that.Yes, they have backups, but if your original is rotted and you back up the rotted data, both your originals and your backed up copies are all junk because no one is opening the files to verify if the backups are still legit and clean. Maybe AI will help to protect against this, it can be done... but there is an added cost to make this work. No one is willing to foot the bill for it.In other words, even backed up copies of movie media are subject to rot, just like physical nitrate/film negatives!All the other stuff you need to know:You can find more about all the stories we mentioned on today’s show at slashfilm.com, and linked inside the show notes./Film Daily is published every weekday, bringing you the most exciting news from the world of movies and TV as well as deeper dives into the great features from slashfilm.com. You can subscribe to /Film Daily on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.Send your feedback, questions, comments, concerns, and mailbag topics to us at [email protected].

I was listening to you and Ryan on the podcast talking about disc media rot and just wanted to share with the class that there is a good computer program for taking a DVD or Blu-Ray and creating a copy of the contents on your computer. You can transfer all the properties of the movie, including subtitles, etc. The application is called HandBrake. Computer files are infinitely duplicatable, so you could put as many copies of the same movie on as many hard drives as your heart desires.Obviously, this program could be abused and used for pirating movies (don’t use it for that!), but as long as you are only creating digital copies of movies that you bought and paid for and only for personal use, everything is kosher.

My “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (still sealed) and “Veronica Mars” (played once before) collections only played half the episodes when I revisited these TV shows last year, and those were not the only ones.

Celebrating 40 Years of Footloose

On the February 16, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editor BJ Colangelo to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Footloose.Opening Banter: Quick admin note: We will not have an episode on Monday, because it’s Presidents Day.In Our Feature Presentation: FootlooseWhat’s your relationship to this movie?Ben just watched it for the first timeRidiculousness of the premisePreacher holds the town in an iron grip post-accidentJohn Lithgow ends up relenting and allowing the dance to happen because he’s dressed down by his wife when she gives him that speech in the empty church, but if this were to happen today, he would never relent because people like that have no shame anymore and are so dug in that they would never admit they made a mistakeWhat do you think about the actual dancing here?Kevin Bacon, movie starWhat this movie meant to Bacon’s careerHe was previously in Animal House, Friday the 13th, and DinerSupporting castHave you ever seen the remake?Listener email: Brayden from Fort Worth, Texas writes: It seems all roads are leading to Madame Web being a critical and financial failure, which I think is unfortunate for many reasons, chief among them how it’ll affect S.J. Clarkson’s career. This is Clarkson’s second feature after 2010’s Toast, and I wonder if Madame Web will put her in the halls of “director jail.” [...] There’s a pattern in Hollywood: Cathy Yan directed Birds of Prey in 2020 to critical success but not financial, and has only directed an episode of Succession since. Patty Jenkins directed Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020 to mixed results critically and financially, although the pandemic was certainly a factor. Her announced movie Rogue Squadron seems less and less likely to happen. Chloe Zhao directed Eternals in 2021 to mixed results [...] Ultimately, my question is why does it seem like female blockbuster directors only get one shot, and if they miss, that’s it? I know Hollywood is a business and all that, but the discrepancy between male directors getting second chances seems way higher than female directors. I guess this isn’t breaking news, but more of the same, unfortunately. I think everyone deserves a second chance. Anyway, sorry for the long email. Love the pod and am wishing you and the /Film crew well.The Guardian: How today’s female directors broke out of ‘movie jail’Stylist: Why isn’t the director of Clueless a bigger Hollywood success story?Progress?

On the November 13, 2023 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editors Jacob Hall and BJ Colangelo to have a spoiler-filled conversation about The Marvels.Opening Banter: In The Spoiler Room: The MarvelsQuick acknowledgement of its sub-par box office performance, the delight some people are taking in its failure, etc. If you want to listen to people gleefully celebrate this movie’s failure, I’m sure there are plenty of places to do that, but that’s not what we’re doing here.Brief reactionsJacobBJBenBreakdownThe movie opens with Dar-Benn, played by Zawe Ashton. She’s now the leader of the Kree, and is searching for the Quantum Bands. She uncovers one of them and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) has the other. Before we get into the heroes, let’s talk about the villain.So Dar-Benn opens these jump points across the galaxy, and by the end of the movie, we realize she’s trying to use these portals to essentially siphon resources back to her home world of Hala – including Earth’s sun. (I’m not really sure how that works, and the movie isn’t super interested in the details, either.) But the jump points create some sort of anomaly in space, and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) end up touching things they shouldn’t have touched, and Kamala Khan’s bangle/Quantum Band ropes her into one of the movie’s main ideas, which is that these three women are linked, and when any two of the trio use their powers simultaneously, it causes them to switch places. Antics ensue.At one point, they visit a planet called Aladna, where everyone sings as their primary form of communication, and it’s revealed that Captain Marvel is married to a prince.How did you think the film dealt with the relationship between the three women? Monica and Carol have history, Kamala worships Carol.Sam Jackson on a space station, using Flerkens kittens as escape pods.Eventually Dar-Benn gets a hold of both Quantum Bands, is nearly killed by the power of using both at the same time, and inadvertently rips a hole in the multiverse. Monica convinces Carol to make amends for destroying the Supreme Intelligence and basically causing a Kree civil war by flying into Hala’s sun and reigniting it with her powers. Kamala and Carol supercharge Monica, who flies into the multiversal hole to close it, but ends up being stuck on the other side.I guess the Khans are living in Louisiana now?Kamala goes to recruit Kate BishopThe mid-credits sceneMonica wakes up in a medical bay overseen by Dr. Hank McCoy, aka Beast, played once again by Kelsey Grammer. Monica’s mother, Maria Rambeau, played by Lashana Lynch, is sitting at her bedside, but this is an alternate universe version of the character who didn’t die during the five years Monica was Blipped, and she apparently has no idea who Monica is. BJ, you wrote an article about this, so tell me what that costume was that Maria was wearing.Kevin Feige continues to slow-play the introduction of the X-Men into the MCU.Closing thoughtsAll the other stuff you need to know:This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

I also want to get back into doing big spoiler conversations about major movie releases, so we’ll try to introduce those back into the mix as well and may shift the schedule around to accommodate those as needed. There’s a chance we might miss an episode here or there due to holidays or sickness or just life stuff happening, but we’re ramping back up in a major way.The reason we’re able to increase the frequency of the show again is because of our ad partners, and because of listeners like you. So if you hear about a product or service that you’re interested in, it’s important to use the specialized web addresses that we provide, because it’s your way of telling our partners “/Film Daily sent me” and it keeps them interested in working with us, which will keep us able to continue making the show.

Mini-Water Cooler: Last Stop Larrimah, Mister Organ, Movie Intermissions, and More

On the October 12, 2023 episode of The /Film Show, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editor and chief film critic Chris Evangelista to talk about the latest film and TV news and gather around the virtual water cooler to talk about what they’ve been up to.Opening Banter: In The News:The AMPTP has suspended talks with SAG-AFTRAListener email: Neal from Missouri writes in: Killers of the Flower Moon is coming up and it is one of my most anticipated movies. Its long runtime at 3 and a half hours doesn't bother me, but I know it has to be a factor for a lot of people. Some people would rather wait to watch at home so they can pause it to go to the bathroom. Marty argues that you watch TV for five hours, but I don't think he takes into account you can pause it. So my question is, why don't we get intermissions on movies this length anymore? Is it because theaters want more showtimes? Is it a creative decision? I don't think a 10 minute intermission would make that big of a difference in showtimes and might draw more people to see it knowing that's there. What are your thoughts? Do you want an intermission? Do you think it would make a difference for the majority of people?At The Water Cooler:What we’ve been Doing: Chris went on a haunted hayride.  What we’ve been Reading:What we’ve been Watching:Ben watched Lost Horizon, Mister Organ, The Equalizer 3, Dumb Money, and the rest of the Wes Anderson shorts on Netflix. Chris watched Last Stop Larrimah: Murder Down Under and Halloween Kills. What we’ve been Eating:What we’ve been Playing:All the other stuff you need to know:This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

I was a projectionist back then, the term is open matte. The cheap films had me permanently stationed at the projector, as they weren’t printed with even an open frame lock!” Charles from Virginia: “I just finished listening to your podcast from Friday May 12 and I heard you talk about seeing a boom mic in Young Guns 2 and feeling like it was an error made by the filmmakers.  I had this same experience with M. Night Shyamalan's The Village in 2004! For nearly 20 years I thought I had seen some early cut of that film that was just poorly edited! I was losing my mind and nobody I talked to knew what I was talking about. Now today for the first time I'm learning that this was likely a very isolated incident caused by some poor underpaid projectionist at my local single screen theater.  Thank you so much for sharing that story and reminding me of this experience I had so long ago. I feel like I finally have some closure.”In The News:Ryan: Box OfficeGuardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Achieves Marvel's Best Second Weekend Box Office Hold In YearsGuardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Has Already Passed Ant-Man 3 At The Global Box OfficeGuardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Blasts Past $500 Million Worldwide In 10 DaysRobert Rodriguez’s Hypnotic Is Instantly One Of The Biggest Box Office Bombs Of 2023Rise of the Beasts trackingMid-Roll Sponsor break: “we’re going to take a quick break, and we’ll be right back”James Gunn's Superman: Legacy Eyes David Corenswet For The Cape And Tights (corin-swet)Ryan: Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Is 'Not Tied Into The MCU' Despite That No Way Home ReferenceVin Diesel Teases A Fast X Trilogy, Or He's Just Saying Stuff AgainAll the other stuff you need to know:This episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.

A New Hope, Empire and Return Of The Jedi tell the important parts of the tale that really define the history of the period. There are all kinds of sub-stories underneath that. We’ve been building all these small stories. To me, a theatrical experience has to have a big idea — a monumental moment in the time period that changes what’s happening. What Tony [Gilroy] has done [in Andor] and what we did in Rebels, everything then changes when Luke blows up the Death Star. You’re looking for those moments that define an era, and that’s what the films really should be about — whether it’s characters coming together, or a defining moment. There are little things along the way that I’ve built across different mediums, all in preparation for things that come later.”When asked if Thrawn is the "big bad of this New Republic era," Filoni answered without hesitation, "Definitely, in my eyes." He added:   "Thrawn became this very iconic villain, because he was different than anything we'd seen before. He wasn't another helmet-wearing, lightsaber-wielding bad guy."All the other stuff you need to know:This episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.

In that last episode of Rebels, Captain Pellaeon is on a Star Destroyer that is part of the blockade out in space, while Grand Admiral Thrawn is on a different Star Destroyer directly in the atmosphere of Lothal above the Capital City. When the space whales aka the purrgil appear, Thrawn calls up Captain Pellaeon to get a report and he talks to him briefly before his radio gets cut off. When the purrgil take Grand Admiral Thrawn's Star Destroyer with Ezra out into hyperspace, Captain Pellaeon is not with them.

The Mandalorian Spoiler Discussion: Chapter 23 "The Spies"

On the April 12, 2023 episode of /Film Daily, /Film Editorial Director Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film editor Brad Oman and Star Wars expert Bryan Young for a spoiler-filled conversation about The Mandalorian Chapter 23 “The Spies”.In The Spoiler Room: The Mandalorian Chapter 23 “The Spies”FeedbackHeather Fox writes “I like the theory that Grogu could join Rey in teaching the new Jedi order, but I think they are setting Grogu up to be the future Mandalore. Here are some of the reasons I believe this: 1. He would be the second leader since Tarre Vizsla to be a Mandelorian/ Jedi. 2. We have seen him calm large creatures, he will likely be able to ride a mythosaur. 3. He would be able to rule Mandalore for centuries! 4. We have always assumed that the title of the show is was about Djin, but what if it is really about the origins of the greatest ruler of Mandalore?”Matthew: “In the most recent discussion about the latest episode of the Mandalorian, you guys picked up on the Alice In Wonderland influences, but missed or didn’t bring up the heavy Isaac Asimov influence. I felt that the episode felt like a love letter to Isaac Asimov's old noire detective robot series. … In that series, humans have reached other planets and have gotten robots to do all the labor, freeing people's time. People live inside large dome structures connected by tunnels so that people rarely go outside. The series has 2 detectives, with the lead detective being very distrustful of robots, but over several stories turns around to trust them, just like Din’s current arc. The stories start with 2 detectives getting called in because of malfunctioning robots, often murder and while the robots are initially the lead suspects, it's always a human who is behind the crime, having found some way to bypass Asimov’s 3 laws of robotics. I really loved Asimov’s novels growing up and so I absolutely loved this episode as it felt like the closest thing to seeing one of these novels adapted for tv.”Spencer: “If the Dark Saber goes to whoever defeats the owner, then it belongs to Luke:  In CLone Wars Maul defeated Vizsla, later Ahsoka defeated Maul. In Rebels Ahsoka is defeated by Darth Vader. And finally Luke beats Vader in Return.   However if it's while they’re wielding it then it would belong to Darth Maul, because Sabine just found it.”Nathan: “My biggest beef with the sequel trilogy was that the state of the galaxy at the end of Rise of Skywalker was the exact same as at the end of Return of the Jedi with the only difference is that NOW our favorite characters are all dead. I'm really glad that the upcoming Rey movie will deal with the reestablishment of the Jedi Order as I felt that should have been the overall focus of the sequels from the start. I also REALLY hope that John Boyega signs on in some capacity as well.  One more thing: the villains in Ahsoka have orange lightsabers! Do you know if that's ever been a thing before, or is this new?”Brief reactionsBradBryanPeterMid-Roll Sponsor break: “we’re going to take a quick break, and we’ll be right back”BreakdownThe Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 7 Takes Us To A Dark Place And Is Exactly What The Show NeededWhat Is The Mandalorian's Mysterious 'Project Necromancer'?

Spoiler Discussion: The Mandalorian Chapter 21 "The Pirate"

On the March 29, 2023 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editorial director Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film editor Brad Oman and Star Wars expert Bryan Young get together for a spoiler-filled conversation about The Mandalorian Chapter 21, “The Pirate”FeedbackManuel: One thing that always bothered me with Star wars, movie and tv shows alike, planets seems to always be one city basically. In the case of nevarro, about 30 people. But fans never seem to be bothered by this?  Cade in Iowa and Aaron Leicestershire, UK had the same thought, im gonna read Aaron’s email:Big fan of the spoiler discussions. I listen to every one of them, much to my children's chagrin..  I just had a thought with regards to Grogu's escape from Coruscant. Bryan wrote up a great theory about Jar Jar Binks. I love this theory. … However, I did have another thought. A key part of Bryan's theory was that Jar Jar and Padme are the only 2 people that we've come across from Naboo with the means to help in this way and that were on Coruscant at the time. Padme was discounted for some very good reasons but.. there is another..  Could Sheev Palpatine, former Naboo senator, be behind this "escape"? It's feasible to me that most of the Jedi would not yet be aware of Palpatine's betrayal or that he was behind Order 66. It's conceivable then that Kelleran Beq might have reached out to him for help and, seeing an opportunity to ensnare this Jedi, Palpatine offers him a ship. Will we see in the next flash back we get that Beq has been betrayed by the person he thought was helping him?  This would also put Grogu in the Empire's hands very early on which would explain how, when we meet him in the first episode of The Mandalorian, the Empire are aware of his existence and are actively hunting him and how he is able to be tracked with a tracking fob. It would stand to reason that the Empire had possession of him before he was either stolen or escaped hence why they enlisted Din to get him back. Brief reactionsBradBryanPeterMid-Roll Sponsor break: “we’re going to take a quick break, and we’ll be right back”BreakdownBryan’s Review: The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 5 Goes Full PirateThe Mandalorian Talking Hammer Proves The Greatest Weapon Of All ...
