It’s National Senior Citizens Day! To all of our elder listeners, we salute you.
Rob leads the charge in a love fest of the Ted Lasso Holiday episode. Pete has some follow-up enthusiasm including this EW video in which Brendan Hunt covers the off-side rule with Brett Goldstein, and this Variety video in which we learn that Juno Temple is a tiny cucumber with anxiety along side the incredible Hanna Waddingham. Oh yeah, and if you want to check out a dose of Brett Goldstein’s early stand-up, why don’t you check out this video from his performance at Richard Sandling’s Perfect Movie? And did you know he has a podcast? A MOVIE podcast? It’s called “Films to be Buried With” and it’s worth checking out.
We also have a bit of news following up on the South Park deal and how Trey Parker and Matt Stone just made $900 million. And yes, they did buy Casa Bonia.
We did a bit deeper on the Ayer cut of Suicide Squad, and the value of dropping additional cuts of existing movies. Is the Snyder Cut reproduceable? Should every big film get a do-over?
We’re celebrating Johnny Dangerously this week on The Next Reel with it’s great visuals. For pairing, we offer a list of movies with great running or visual gags that are our favorites in hopes you might find the fun in them yourself.
