    Going back into theatres to watch movies? Remaking "Utopia" and "The Office" and of course, some Netflix - Broken English Podcast

    Going back into theatres to watch movies? Remaking "Utopia" and "The Office" and of course, some Netflix - Broken English Podcast

    Hugo and Bola discuss how the movie theatre going experience has been going and do we want to see "Tenet" in theatres again... Have you guys gone in to watch? 

    The two talk about the recreation of "Utopia" from its British show to an Amazon Prime original and how titles and shows in the same language should/shouldn't necessarily need an American remake if they're in the same language. Hugo and Bola also debate foreign films being remade and whether that's from inspiration or a lack of original creativity.

    They touch on the remakes of "The Office" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" as well as Hugo's lack of love for hand-held shots versus Bola's love of them. We also touch on Criterion and of course we have to talk about Netflix. Because everyone does.

    Stay tuned for Broken English Films productions coming before the year's end.

    Blade Runner 2049, underrated movies, "The Batman," Oliver Stone, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - The Broken English Podcast

    Blade Runner 2049, underrated movies, "The Batman," Oliver Stone, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - The Broken English Podcast

    Hugo and Bola discuss underrated movies, particularly because Bola's disappointed more people didn't gravitate towards the epic Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049" and the two elaborate on what quantifies an underrated movie. Is it public reception or box office dollars? What is actually a movie flop? Hugo again cites "Stardust" as an underrated movie that should have been more successful.

    Are opinions subjective or are those apart from Bola's and Hugo's simply wrong? "Constantine," "Road House," cult films and more.

    They also discuss the possibilities of film financing nowadays versus yesteryear, in part inspired by Oliver Stone's recently released memoir "Chasing The Light."

    Stay tuned for Broken English Film productions coming fall 2020 and beyond.

    Actors, Directors & Artists in general - come to set prepared. Jurassic World Dominion and more - The Broken English Podcast

    Actors, Directors & Artists in general - come to set prepared. Jurassic World Dominion and more - The Broken English Podcast

    Hugo goes off on a rant praising actors who take their craft seriously and slamming those that come unprepared. Bola, a more seasoned actor, responds from the actor's perspective. They also attribute the same responsibilities to directors and other crew members that are either unprepared or don't know what they want. Essentially, listening to this podcast is listening to filmmakers complain, which may well be your thing today. Hopefully.

    They also discuss the recently released Pandemic production guide released to help Jurassic Park World: Dominion get underway again, shooting in England and the similar efforts being made where they're based in British Columbia.

    Tenet is released, AMC charging 15 cents for tickets, Mulan on VOD, The Matrix transgender message and more - The Broken English Podcast

    Tenet is released, AMC charging 15 cents for tickets, Mulan on VOD, The Matrix transgender message and more - The Broken English Podcast

    In this week's podcast Hugo and Bola discuss the fact that Warner Brothers have been relentless in wanting to release "Tenet" and have finally done so in the UK soon it'll be in North America too. AMC Theatres are selling tickets for 15 cents to lure people back in. 2020 tickets at 1920 prices? "Mulan" is coming to video-on-demand via Disney+ for $30. Is it worth it?

    They also speak about how bad 2018's "The Predator" was including set insights.

    The siblings that wrote and directed the films, The Wachowskis, revealed "The Matrix" was originally conceived as a gender allegory with an identity message revolving around the pills.

    Neither are overly familiar, but they speak about John Wick's sequels and David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive" (surprisingly not available on Netflix Canada, Amazon Prime video Canada or Canada's Google Play store at the time of publishing this), Paul Thomas Anderson and how underrated Michael Mann is.

    Yes, COVID-19 and its impact on the film industry again. "Tenet" being delayed. "The Jesus Rolls" Sang-ho Yeon's "Peninsula" and its box office success

    Yes, COVID-19 and its impact on the film industry again. "Tenet" being delayed. "The Jesus Rolls" Sang-ho Yeon's "Peninsula" and its box office success

    Yes, we're talking again about COVID-19 and its impact on the film industry. "Tenet" being delayed. "The Jesus Rolls" Sang-ho Yeon's "Peninsula" and its box office success .

    Hugo and Bola discuss (prior to the actual confirmation that "Tenet" has been indefinitely delayed) the likelihood and prospect of "Tenet" being delayed and how the movie watching experience is on hold. We also touch on the recent success of Sang-ho Yeon's "Peninsula," the follow up to the hugely successful Korean zombie thriller/horror "Train To Busan." As well as the disappointing "The Big Lebowski" spin-off, "The Jesus Rolls."

    They also discuss the thrill and fun of renting from physical stores when shops like "Blockbuster video" existed. 

    Hugo remembers and reminisces over perusing titles and links it to the experience in browsing albums, whereas Bola didn't quite get into that aspect of physical media  in the same manner. 

    Surprisingly Broken English Films productions are busy despite COVID.

    Tom Cruise gets a COVID pass? The Last of Us II's rabid fans and more - The Broken English Films Podcast

    Tom Cruise gets a COVID pass? The Last of Us II's rabid fans and more - The Broken English Films Podcast

    Tom Cruise gets a COVID pass? Apparently. Hugo and Bola discuss the UK allowing A-list actors, crew and their entourage being allowed easier access to the UK without quarantining like every other American entering the country. The justifications behind that ruling and whether it makes sense or not.

    They also discuss the deluded passions and insanity of rabid fans when it comes to the art they love, in particular referencing a voice actress that has received threats on her life because of the character she voices in "The Last of Us Part II." We touch upon the disappointments that "Game of Thrones" brought and briefly on how great "Homeland" is.

    As well as "The Naked Director," "Athlete A" and "Unsolved Mysteries." We also speak about Bizzy Bone and Bone Thugs N' Harmony for a bit.

    Oh, and Ghislaine Maxwell.
