Analyzing movies, TV, and games from creation to consumption
Peter Mayhew: "I Did Get a Medal"
Peter Mayhew was Chewbacca, and Chewbacca was Peter Mayhew. The size of his heart far exceeded that of his towering frame.
Recorded live at Dallas Comic Show 2016.
Emilia Clarke & Nathalie Emmanuel: Live in Houston
This is a bonus not-really-an-episode recorded live at Comicpalooza 2019. For context: this Q&A happened after Game of Thrones S8 episode 4 dropped, but before episode 5 aired.
Nathalie Emmanuel came onstage first, followed by Emilia Clarke, who joined her for the remainder of the Q&A.
Isaac Hempstead-Wright: “Dr. Bran-hattan”
Isaac (Bran Stark) talks about stumbling his way into acting, the experience of working on the biggest international series in TV history, and what he wants to do beyond the Seven Kingdoms.
Recorded live at Alamo City Comic Con 2018, so this episode contains no spoilers for Season 8 of Game of Thrones. It does, however, spoil things from across all of the first 7 seasons of the show.
Kristian Nairn: "Flirting in Hodor"
Kristian Nairn only had one word to work with throughout his time on Game of Thrones, but he found a way to make the most of it. In doing so, he’s become one of the most-beloved characters on one of the great shows in TV history.
Find out how much Kristian knew about the books before he auditioned, the most difficult day he had on-set, and more than you may have known about his fondness for comic books, heavy metal, and World of Warcraft.
"Space Odyssey" with Keir Dullea & Gary Lockwood
Last year marked the 50th Anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood discuss the making of the film and the 50-year journey since.
One of the greatest films in the history of cinema was hated by critics at the time of its release. It completely changed the direction of science fiction “space” cinema and cemented the genre as anything but silly, compared to what came before. This episode was culled from a series of interviews conducted over the course of 2018 with stars Keir Dullea (Dave Bowman) and Gary Lockwood (Gary Poole).
2001: A Space Odyssey is now available in 4K/UHD from Warner Home Video. The best way to watch it is on 70mm film. See if your local film society, IMAX, or art house is playing it.
Coco's Ana Ramírez González: "The Little Details"
Over the last five years, Coco sketch artist Ana Ramirez has gone from an intern to being staffed on an Academy Award-winning feature (Coco), illustrating the official Coco storybook (Miguel and the Grand Harmony), and starting work on a second, still-secret feature. Ana discusses her path to working for Pixar, her journey on Coco, and how Pixar makes the concept of a progressive, inclusive workplace a reality.
Coco is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Blu-ray
One of my must-listen podcasts!
Always a delight when a new episode is released - great podcast. :)
entertaining show on the entertainment industry
Moisés Chiullan is a man of many interests large and small in a variety of media, and this show is a great outlet for them. In just a month's time, for example, he went from Ghostbusters to Apple's ad style to Cuban filmmakers. Those sure push all of my interest buttons.
If you're a TV/movies. animation, or comic book fan, or interested in the tech for those industries, add this podcast to your queue!
This is one of those shows that are hit and miss. Some episodes are great and some are just weird. Nevertheless, I still tune in and listen…unless it gets weird in which case i just delete.
