    Disney hosted Disney Investor Day (DID) on December 10th, 2020, and you can bet Eric caught the entire thing live and Shaleila did her reading! Since Disney owns just about everything related to The Culture and The Media, we're here to quickly recap for you the movies and tv shows that will be the talk of the town for the next few that were announced, and highlight the bits you really need to pay attention to. We're doing so in a series of episodes - this one focuses on Marvel. Also included: Shaleila going off about how Tatiana Maslany is God. It's true!!

    #21: Palm Springs

    #21: Palm Springs

    Well, we set aside some time in whatever month of 2020 it is right now to tackle the latest time loop movie to serendipitously drop in the middle of our very own societal time loop: Palm Springs! We discuss what sets it apart from other time loop movies, whether the science holds together, what we can learn from the Sisyphean paradox of being stuck in a loop and yet looking to the future, and what the hell is up with the dinosaurs. If you know, please tell us!

    #20: The Walt Discussions - PINOCCHIO (1940)

    We're keeping our Disney crawl going by revisiting (visiting, for Shaleila) the second ever release, Pinocchio! What are kids and parents meant to take away from it? What do Monstro and Pleasure Island symbolize? Why is it so damn dark? Why does this movie have THREE live action adaptations in the works? What's up with all the butts? We'll tackle them all!

    We're burning our way through every Disney movie out there, and what better to tackle than their most recent release, available to all (who want to pay extra for it) on Disney+! Let us take you through the ups and downs of Disney's 2020 remake of Mulan, as we discuss family, honor, truth, and setting climactic scenes among drab scaffolding. Also, phoenixes!
