Opening Banter: Peter plug’s his function in the present day: Keto at Disneyland: Easy methods to Eat Low Carb at Walt’s Unique Magic Kingdom


  • Mike from Yonkers writes in “Hey Slashfilm crew,  After seeing the officially announced cast for “The Mandalorian”, I’ve to say I’m fairly stunned at how previous it’s. It’s the primary live-action Star Wars property to not have anybody of their precept forged youthful than 35. I did some math and the typical age of the forged is 54 years previous, a lot larger than any of Disney’s SW movies (TFA and Solo are the youngest at 38, TLJ and Episode IX at 41, and Rogue One at 44). What do you assume this says concerning the present itself? Do you assume a number of the oldest forged members have lengthy contracts? I’m not making an attempt to suggest something morbid, simply questioning if somebody of an older age needs to be tied up with a multi-season present for various years.   I’m actually excited for what this might imply. With Dave Filoni’s involvement, I’ve already questioned if we’d see the return of a few of his Clone Wars characters. Perhaps a few of these actors will painting older variations of them.  Thanks once more for a terrific podcast! Mike from Yonkers Word: For the averages, I solely used the ages of non-returning actors. For instance, Daisy Ridley was solely used for TFA when she was launched and never TLJ and IX.”
  • Saul writes in “Hey guys,   Just heard the episode where you discuss Netflix’s new Instant Replay feature. I have had first hand experience with this feature. My daughter has been watching Moana or Coco about 10 times a day and there are times where she wants to rewind to listen to a song all over. About a few days ago I noticed that little box pop up that says “Replay Song” and have since proven my daughter that if she needs to take heed to a track throughout she will simply press the enter button as soon as it pops up. For sure it’s a lifesaver. I haven’t seen this function pop up on another film or TV present. I don’t know if it’s only for the youngsters film musicals, I for one am okay if it’s only for that.   Thanks for the present.”
  • We requested for observations concerning the Avengers: Endgame trailer. Brian writes in “The way the title reveals itself, with the Avengers A bringing its own shattered pieces back together, almost like an explosion played in reverse, suggests to me that reversing time, or time travel in some way, is definitely a component of the story.”
  • Jason from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia writes in “Hi Peter and Slash Film crew,  I really enjoy listening to the podcast everyday, and thank you for all the awesome reviews, news, and coverage.   I know I am many days late on sending in my thoughts around the Avengers 4 movie title but here I am. End Game as a title is fine, good, reflects the storyline and desperation and etc. However, I feel what probably will resonate best is Avengers: Assemble.   In all 3 Avengers films, there has not been any “Avengers, assemble!” roll name by any character apart from the very shut one in Age of Ultron by Cap, however minimize proper in the mean time he was about to say “assemble”.   Calling it Avengers Assemble provides out that constructive vibe and sure to resonate with followers who’ve been wanting to listen to that out loud for the longest time. It’s also actually assembling all of the heroes for a remaining assault, and assembling each generations of Avengers and handing over the baton.   Yeah, simply my thought.   Thanks!”
  • Steve B writes in in response to our Christmas film argument: “Most films are not just one genre. ’21 Jump Street’ is a comedy, but also an action movie. Shaun Of The Dead is a comedy but also a horror movie.  In that vein, I say Die Hard is an Action film, a Heist film, and also a Christmas movie. The whole reason John McClane is in Los Angeles in the first place is to see his family for Christmas. Argyle is playing ‘Christmas’ music in the limo. They debate cutting power to a portion of the city because it is Christmas. The thieves did not pick that day at random. Christmas is a plot point to the film.  It COULD have been written for John to have come to L.A. to see his family for Holly’s birthday, or for his kid’s school recital, but then it loses something for the plot. Could ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ work as a Christmas movie instead of Thanksgiving? Yes, but it would lose something that Thanksgiving gives to that movie. If the genre (including a holiday) has a plot point to the film, and taking it away lessens the film, then I THINK it’s reasonable to count it as part of the film’s description.  For these reasons, I think that Die Hard is a Christmas movie. If others feel it isn’t, I’m cool with that, as long as they are OK with me thinking that it is.”
  • And a pair weeks in the past Brad talked about being at Prime Golf and I used to be unhappy they don’t have one in Southern California. Sean B writes in to tell me that “Topgolf is coming to LA.”
  • Beforehand Peter requested for some television suggestions, exhibits with a couple of seasons which are serialized and nice that he might not have seen. We learn some suggestions in a earlier mailbag, however have acquired a pair extra since:
    • Shaneez (final time you weren’t positive if I used to be a he or a she once you talked about me. I’m a He) from Los Angeles writes in “Happy Thanksgiving Peter! Great fan of the pod.  I know I’m a little late but here you go. Definitely The Expanse. I wrote about it in the past to you too and you were kind enough to read it out in the pod. Get past the 2 episodes you watched before and it’s really good.   Also – I know you want serialized, binge worthy and NOT some slow burn. Look no further than The 100. Yes , I know what you’re thinking. I hate CW shows too. They are too campy. And don’t get me wrong The 100 is kinda there as well, but good Lord is it super super binge worthy. Esp the first two seasons. I know you long for the days of Lost and you love Survivor. This is like a mash up of both and it’s highly addictive. The later seasons lose some quality but I still can’t stop watching it.   And Justified is another great show. Unfortunately the first season is episodic with a greater story arc in the background but the later seasons are just too good. That’s all for now. Wish you well for this holiday season.”
    • Michael from Kansas Metropolis writes in “I swear I don’t work for HBO… but especially in light of the sad news about Ricky Jay’s passing, I feel compelled to kindly yell at you again about watching Deadwood.  He’s a minor player in the cast but for fans it’s a treat to see him as a games dealer, nodding to his appearance in Mamet’s “House of Games” in addition to his magic and card dealing with persona usually.

In The Mail Bag:

  • Albert Jackson in Texas writes in “On dec 10th podcast said best brisket besides in Austin….  Curious name of bbq joint in Austin that had best brisket ?”
    • Peter: Franklin’s, however you possibly can’t beat the expertise of the Salt Lick
    • Jacob: Franklin’s is the most effective and there’s nothing prefer it. Sorry.
  • Ryan in San Diego writes in “Love the podcast  Maybe you guys will be able to help me with this, I have a hard time keeping track of when new movies release, and it seems like all the sites that keep track of new releases always post a score of some sort.  I consider critic and fan rankings to all be spoilers. I like to go into movies with a blank slate. I need help finding an app or a website with will show a calendar of upcoming movie releases. That just has release date, and the movie poster, maybe with the option to watch a preview for the movies I have never heard of.  Without any rankings/ratings. If I wanted to see a movie and it has a really low score, i might skip it for another movie, so I would rather just not know what others think. Ideally a way to thumbs up and thumbs down to make a personal list would be awesome.  I have and love the AMC A-List, so I am willing to take a chance on what others may not have enjoyed.  When I go see a Dwayne Johnson movie, I’m not expecting anything amazing, just an enjoyable couple of hours.  Thank you”

  • Anthony W writes in “Hello Slashfilm Daily Crew,  I have a question regarding the general attitude toward movie remakes. I just don’t understand the general cynicism towards announced projects.    I work in the theatre world, where we regularly see multiple productions and revivals of shows. We will go even go see the same exact production if there is an interesting actor change, just to to see their interpretation of the role. Or a revival, with the same exact script but a different, updated take. This includes the shows that have been captured on film. Those often spur me to go see different productions to see how people interpret them.   Now of course, I understand they are different forms of entertainment. But it seems like getting a new version of a favorite story should be fairly similar. Is it the Hollywood influence or something I am just not seeing?  Thank you so much, I love the podcast!”
