On the October 19 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film managing editor Jacob Hall, senior writer Ben Pearson and writers Hoai-Tran Bui and Chris Evangelista to answer reader e-mail in the Mail Bag.

You can subscribe to /Film Daily on iTunes, Google Play, Overcast, Spotify and all the popular podcast apps (here is the RSS URL if you need it).

Opening Banter: HT talks about doing an interview with a translator.

In The Mailbag:

  • Chris from Ohio writes in: What are your plans for Halloween?”
  • Britton from Louisville KY writes in: “What is the difference between a producer and an executive producer? Do they both get best picture oscars if their movie wins?”
    • An Executive Producer is the top executive of the operations, whereas the producer is the manager of the operations.
    • The executive producer prepares the budget and acquires the investors, while the producer makes sure how the budget is properly utilized.
    • The producer hires the people with the right talents and skills for the movie where the producer himself is hired by the Executive Producer.  For the most part, the executive producer has very little to do with the hiring process, aside from hiring the producer.
    • The producer is on set for the entire production (although some films have multiple producers, technical producers and a creative producers), the executive producer is not on set all the time but is used in more of an advisory capacity, overseeing the scripts and marketing.
    • A producer is always eligible for awards in the industry, on the other hand, the Executive producer is not eligible for awards.
    • Sometimes an executive producer is more of a credit than a job.
    • Peter explains:
  • Damon P. from St. Louis, MO writes in “I was wondering, since many of the team reads books that are movies or will eventually be movies, if they believe that breaking up a film into two parts (think Deathly Hallows, or Mockingjay) to make a book more complete in film format is a good thing.  So many times we hear “The book is better” why is that? Is that because the movies are limited by time, to incorporate additional plots points or anything like that. Would it be better to break a movie into two (or three) parts in order to give the source material it’s due?”
  • Leanne R. from LA writes in “Here’s a quick mailbag question that occurred to me as I was listening to the 12/21 episode: what are the best films directed by & starring the same person? (or to widen the field, including the director as a minor role? e.g., Tarantino or Mel Gibson films)”
    • Peter: Well first of all I think we should discount cameos (M Night, Tarantino...etc). Ben Affleck (Town, Argo) although I feel when hes not in the movie his films are better (Gone Baby Gone)
    • HT: Citizen Kane, Life is Beautiful
    • Chris: Unforgiven, A Star Is Born, Dick Tracy, Do The Right Thing
    • Jacob: Citizen Kane, Unforgiven, lots of Buster Keaton/Charlie Chaplin movies
    • Ben: The Outlaw Josey Wales, High Plains Drifter, A Quiet Place, Rocky sequels
  • Drew from Houston, TX writes in “Hey /Film Daily team,  I really enjoyed the conversation about becoming a film writer. I had another question taking that one step further for those on the site who write reviews: what is your process? Obviously it's hard to take notes when watching a film in theaters. Do you create an outline before diving into a review? Does Chris take notes when reviewing tv shows or blu-rays before writing his review? Just curious to hear a little more about the process.  Thanks!”

Opening Banter: It is a really slow news day.

Feedback: The other day I wondered why there were so many baseball movies in the early 1990’s, and /Film listener Rob G proposed the following theory: “when you were asking why there were so many baseball movies in early 90’s, MLB rented them out in off-season 1993 and then they had a strike and without games used stadiums for revenue in 1994”

Opening Banter: Someone actually wrote in a question for Chris.

 

In Advice Corner with Chris Evangelista: Jacob Chandler from Mississippi writes in:

“Hey guys!  I have an advice question for Chris and whoever else happens to be on the show. I listened to your response about film writing and whether or not you need to go to college to make it in that world. I have a follow up question about filmmaking itself. I’ve debated for a while on whether or not I need to go to college to be a filmmaker. I am currently taking a break from college now to think it over. I’m not sure if all the thousands of dollars in student loans and such is worth an education I could get myself from research and self application. Plus I have also heard that getting jobs in this field is similar to writing in that no one looks at your gpa or what college you went to. They look at your previous work. Can your answer on getting into film writing apply also to filmmaking as well? Or am I just crazy and I should pay the cost to get the career I want?  Thanks so much! I hope this becomes a regular segment.”

On the October 12 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film Senior Writer Ben Pearson and writer Chris Evangelista to talk about the latest film and tv news, including Wu-Tang, Black Panther 2, Aladdin, Daredevil Season 3 and in the mail bag we’ll answer some listener e-mail.

In The News:

 

In The Mail Bag:

  • Yesterday on the podcast, Peter wondered out loud if there had been an actor who had been in both DC and MCU movies simultaneously. A couple people responded with examples:
    • Kyle says “Hey Peter, was just listening to the podcast from yesterday and got to the point where you and Ben talked about Marvel actor switching to DC. It's small, but Laurence Fishburne is Perry White in DC and Bill Foster in Marvel.”
    • Damon says “Re: your conversation on about actors active in both MCU and DCU, although Djimon Hounsou’s Korath was killed in GOTG, he is returning in Captain Marvel.  He is also in Aquaman.
  • David C from California writes in, “Is there a movie song (or soundtrack) that you like, that comes from a movie that you don’t?  Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me by U2 came on the radio the other day. I bought that CD back in the day, and I loved that song — and today I can’t even recall if it came from the Clooney or the Kilmer Batman movie.    Being an old school hair metal fan, I really like the Last Action Hero soundtrack, but don’t care for that movie. Thank you for your show.”
    • Peter: The 1998 Godzilla soundtrack
    • Chris: Man of Steel
    • Ben: Space Jam soundtrack, Scotty Doesn’t Know (Eurotrip), That Thing You Do!
  • More people have written in with Zombie children movie suggestions:
    • Tyler K says “I don't think this movie was mentioned but it was the first that came to my mind. It’s called Cooties and stars Elijah Wood. I haven't seen it but I remember the trailer and thought that it was an interesting idea.”
    • Gokul from New Zealand writes in “I've been following the antics of David Chen and the /FilmCast for years, and now that /FilmDaily is around, it has quickly become my favourite podcast to listen to during my morning commute.  Carrying on from your comment from last week about zombie children, I would like to mention one of Peter Jackson's early movies, Brain Dead, which features an awesome zombie baby.   Without getting into spoilers, there's a scene with the baby and a blender that is just spectacular and even a little bit cathartic (no I'm not sadistic or twisted, it makes sense if you watch the movie) :)  I hope you check the movie out.  Love your guys work, and if any of the /Film crew ever come back to New Zealand (sorry I missed your visit here HT), I would love to have a drink or two with you and talk movies”
  • Anthony C writes in “Hey Peter! I am long time reader of /Film and listener of /Film Daily. I wanted to get your opinion on if you need a college degree or cinema studies background to work in the world of film journalism. Also, is there a "beginners guide" on how to make an entrance into the film writing community? Right now I am in college and have been in college for what seems like forever. I have switched majors several times and I am starting to feel discouraged when it comes to finishing my degree. I am going for a degree in Environmental Health and Safety at the moment so that I can eventually make ends meet and be able to do something that brings me some kind of joy, but ultimately the degree I'm going for doesn't bring as much joy as watching films and reading/listening to people talk about films. I know it will be my decision in the end that will lead me to what I want to do in life, but I am just looking for a different look at this predicament. Thank you /Film team for all the amazing content you produce.”

And in the Mailbag we’ll answer some listener e-mails.

In The News:

In The Mail Bag:

  • Peter asked if listeners had nostalgia or love for the Chronicles of Narnia movie, and a few people responded”
    • Nikita from Ukraine says “I'm 27 years old, and Chronicles of Narnia is my first book(s), so you can say that I have some nostalgia.   However, the main reason I decided to write is to state that Narnia is very different from Lord of The Rings. It presents a fun mix between Greek and Christian mythologies while LotR stays mainly in Scandinavian and German mythos.   The reason why they are so often conflated is because of the new horseshit movies like Prince Caspian or Voyage of the Dawn Treader that randomly decided to have very Tolkien-esque look with walking trees and whatnot, and completely forgotten what made C.S.Lewis's world unique.  I hope that Netflix gives the books justice and we finally get "The Last Battle".”
    • Leanne R., LA says “Just wanted to give a bit of love to the Chronicles of Narnia series. I wouldn't call myself a hard-core follower of the Narnia film franchise, but growing up my paternal family was extremely Christian and CS Lewis was one of the few approved fantasy authors I could read, so I owned all the Narnia books as a child (Harry Potter was frowned upon, so naturally I read all those books too). I also have distinct memories of going to Blockbuster and seeing DVDs of the 90s BBC adaptation of the Narnia series that covered almost all of the books and really fueled my desire to see an adaptation on the big-screen. While the 2005-2010 franchise only spanned 3/7 books and didn't really garner as much success as other Children's Fantasy films (read: HARRY POTTER), I think it at least proved that the hardcore Christian audiences would show up for it, so I'm excited to see if Netflix does justice to Lewis's work as well as lives up to the the fantasy elements in the film franchise adaptation.   My only caveat is, as this was originally produced by Buena Vista/Disney, would that maybe conflict with how Netflix produces their version? And most importantly, could they afford to have Liam Neeson reprise his role as Aslan??  Anyhow, I hope this brought some added insight to the question of whether any Narnia fans exist out there. Thanks again for an informative pod, keep up the good work!”
    • Andrew S says “Big fan of the podcast. You asked on the most recent episode if there are people excited about the Narnia Netflix news. I will raise my hand on that 🙋🏻‍♂️  As someone who grew up in Christian conservative culture in the south, Narnia was a pretty big deal at my house. Years later (I’m 28), there’s a lot of things about my upbringing that I don’t love anymore, but Narnia is one that still has a special place in my heart. I also do not love the movies, but grew up around the books, and have hope that Netflix can make something better out of the source material.   Furthermore! I think there are probably a lot of people in my same situation who are excited for this. Presumably, this will be family friendly, but even beyond that, the Christian elements of it will probably play well to Southerners and the Christian crowd in a way that Game of Thrones never has. I saw several excited reactions among my Facebook friends, for what that’s worth.  Thanks and keep up the good work!”
    • Jeremy writes in “This feels strange because I’ve never before reached out to the producer of one of the dozen-or-so podcasts I listen to, but I felt compelled to let you know my opinions on Netflix acquiring the rights to the Chronicles of Narnia, which you mentioned in your October 3rd edition of the /Film podcast. So remember, you’re the lucky one here.  Anywho, I have a deep fondness for the Chronicles of Narnia. I have nostalgia-tinged memories of reading them when I was younger, and having my dad read them to me and my siblings before bed. I love the world that C.S. Lewis created, and I love the story arc he painted. I enjoyed the movies that came out several years back, but recognize that they had clear problems and were not “good” movies— they seemed to be aiming for a younger audience and a cleaner, family-friendly vibe. Meh. All of that being said, I have mixed feelings on the topic of Netflix’s acquisition of the rights. I believe one of the chief differences between the Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of The Rings, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, et al, is that the Narnia books are driven by one storyline, and the world they’re set in was created to provide a framework for that storyline. C.S. Lewis had the story he wanted, and he stuck with it (it was an overtly religious allegory, which may explain why it isn’t as widely accepted as other fantasy stalwarts). Conversely, other fandoms’ creators have a fascinating world that they’ve built in their heads, then they come up with a compelling story to fit into their world that helps to reveal more of it to the reader/viewer. The latter lends itself much more easily to the task of world building or writing expansive TV shows/movies that expand on side characters and explore minor subplots/plot holes in great detail. All of this being said, I would love to see more Narnia movies, even if Netflix reboots it and goes back at it from the beginning. I don’t want a TV show because I feel that it would just pitter along and ultimately not be worth the effort or time I would invest in it— I would prefer that they took their time and money and put it into making really excellent movies.
    • Thank you for your time. My name is Jeremy and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I hope my writings have provided you insight into alternative viewpoints you may not have considered before, and that it wasn’t so long that it bored you. Have a wonderful night, and thanks for all the work you do in providing us with the /Film content!”
  • Conor from Cincinnati,OH writes in “I'm attending a 24 hour horror movie marathon in Columbus Ohio next week.  Was wondering what tips the slashfilm daily crew had for being in a movie theater pretty much all day? It sounds like you've all got a lot of experience with this from various film festivals.  Additionally any similar experiences from the crew? most movies viewed in one day (in theater or at home)?”
    • Peter: I did Butt-num-a-thon for a few years and that was a real challenge. Wear comfortable clothes, but also don’t kill yourself trying not to sleep. It’s supposed to be fun.
    • Brad: Wear the most comfortable clothes you can find. Sneak snacks in so you don’t have to pay so much for concessions all day. Save your drink cup. The longest time I spent in a theater was the Star Wars marathon with The Force Awakens, which was about 15.5 hours, but I also did the Phase 1 Marvel marathon and the Lord of the Rings Extended Cut in theaters, each around 12 hours.
    • Ben: Put on extra deodorant. Bring a change of clothes and change halfway through. I think I had a 5 or 6 movie day one year at Sundance
  • Gary from Boston writes in “What are your pet peeves when watching movies or tv shows.     Breaking the fourth wall, parking in front of a building in NYC or Boston and using the image of the crucifix as a cheap way to signify the chosen one.”
    • Peter: The misuse of tech or fake tech, and when the characters on screen aren’t taking their own story seriously
    • Brad: Completely fabricated phone and computer operating systems. When characters clearly don’t have liquid in cups they’re holding. Poorly Photoshopped family photos. The same damn sound effects used for dolphins, baby laughs and cats.
    • Ben: Obvious continuity flaws, people’s mouths not matching what they’re saying when the camera is filming them from behind
