We’re back, baby. And after our unplanned hiatus, we’re chatting reboots, remakes, and revivals. What’s the difference, you ask? Better get your headphones on to find out.
2:20 ‘Nam Saying G
Zainabb went to see Call Me By Your Name and it was both super gay and healing, and we chat a bit about coming-of-age stories.
We both watched The Crow and The Craft for Hallowe’en so we chat a bit about the angsty joys of those films (Dziugas had never seen The Craft and Zainabb had never seen The Crow!)
Zainabb read Threads, a graphic novel about refugees in Calais, and cried for the first time reading a book.
Dziugas has started playing World of Warcraft so we talk about that, MMORPGs, and Runescape.
57:27 Reboots, Remakes, and Revivals
We chat the triple Rs, starting with semantics and moving on to our personal feelings about reboots et al. (Spoiler: Zainabb does not care for them.) We discuss what we would (and would not) like to see remade/rebooted/revived and where the appeal of reboots comes from. We cover superhero films including the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Batman and Spider-Man, plus The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Heathers, and Darren Aronofsky.
