    Director Rhys Thomas Talks ‘Hawkeye,’ Working With Marvel Studios, Trying To Get Ant-Man In The Show & More [The Playlist Podcast]

    Director Rhys Thomas Talks ‘Hawkeye,’ Working With Marvel Studios, Trying To Get Ant-Man In The Show & More [The Playlist Podcast]

    Hawkeye has a bit of a stigma in comics and in the MCU. He’s the dude that shoots arrows. He’s not a god. He’s not a super-soldier. And he doesn’t have a billion-dollar suit of armor protecting him. He has three kids, a wife, and a quiver of trick arrows. That’s all. Well, he also has a new Disney+ TV series, aptly titled, “Hawkeye.” And in this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we got a chance to speak with Rhys Thomas, one of the directors of “Hawkeye,” to talk about what makes the archer such a great MCU character.

    Thanksgiving Movies: The Cranky Little Cousin of the Holiday Canon [Be Reel]

    After many Thanksgivings spent recording supersized podcast episodes, Noah and Chance finally do the sensible thing and just cover films about Turkey Day itself. The trio of “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” (1987), “Home For The Holidays” (1995) and “The Ice Storm” (1997) explores the great lengths to which families go to gather, despite cornucopias of evidence that perhaps they shouldn’t. To all those surviving delayed flights and cooking for too many people this year, this one’s for you.

    Benedict Cumberbatch Talks Going Method For 'Power Of The Dog' & Teases Upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’ Sequel [The Discourse]

    Benedict Cumberbatch has a real knack for playing unique, oftentimes misunderstood egomaniacs. Whether it’s Doctor Strange, Sherlock Holmes, Patrick Melrose, Julian Assange, or Khan, the actor finds a way to ground his oftentimes sociopathic characters in a real emotional truth. Enter, Phil Burbank, Cumberbatch's character from the upcoming Netflixfilm, “The Power of the Dog” – and a whole new level of depraved bully that the actor had to find a way to humanize. In this episode of The Discourse, Benedict Cumberbatch talks all about bringing his latest Oscar-worthy performance to life, and by going “method,” no less.

    'Yellowstone' Season 4 Ramps Up The Drama But Episode 3 Is Little More Than Filler [Yellowstoners]

    'Yellowstone' Season 4 Ramps Up The Drama But Episode 3 Is Little More Than Filler [Yellowstoners]

    The Yellowstoners have returned to get high on that sweet Montana ranchin’ drama! This week Mike DeAngelo and Rodrigo Perez check in on the latest episode of "Yellowstone" entitled, “All I See Is You,” which follows our beloved Dutton crew still reeling from the aftermath of the attempted hit that was placed on the family at the end of last season.

    Will John Dutton get to the bottom of who gave the order for the hit? Will Jimmy become a man? Will Jamie even show up? Will Beth and Rip mess their newly semi-adopted kid up so badly that he murders the entire cast? Episode 3 does nothing but deepen those questions – and perhaps raise more questions.

Personable, complex, compelling

Adjust Your Tracking , a segment on The Playlist Podcast Network is incisive and interesting. I watched the movie Annihilation that came out earlier this year, felt so-so about the movie, listened to Joe and Eric talk about it, and then felt good to re-see the themes and formal qualities they discussed. It's a discussion in the fullest sense of the word. They talk casually but thoughtfully, often about the "state of the industry," but always for significant reasons. Can't recommend enough for movie fans.

Great motivational podcast

I'm not especially a sports fan but I like relatable motivational podcasts. Found this podcast by chance and was drawn in to it within the first 30 seconds. It manages to combine motivation with business and the incredible drive that athletes have that can. We all have that drive that can help us make a success of life but some of us have to dig a bit deeper to find it.

Avengers Pod

Just listened to the Infinity War pod. It was awful. I mean, truly bad. They had no clue what the heck they were talking about. 👎👎👎 and I’m not saying you have to be a huge fanboy to do a pod in the topic but this was just incorrect statement after incorrect statement. So bad.
