Opening Banter: We are recording early because Peter is covering a Wreck-It Ralph VR event.

In The News:

In The Mailbag:

  • Last week we collectively said how Cassian Andor was our least favorite part of Rogue One. Pablo from Fort Wayne Indiana wrote in a defense:
    • “I just listened to your Friday podcast this morning and it made me want to write you because you said in the episode you didn't think anyone really wanted a Cassian Andor show. I can tell you the buzz around Latino Twitter is big on this. Personally I couldn't be more excited to be seeing a Star Wars show led by a Latino. This is something I always wanted as a kid, a Latino in the Star Wars universe? It would've been huge for me. As far as performances go I thought he was one of the people who shined in Rogue One and I loved his character because he was the one who'd been in the struggle for years already so he gave weight to the Rebellion (in my mind). I had a nephew who loved Rogue One because of Cassian and his character is a reason he started loving Star Wars. I remember for when The Force Awakens came out, the following Halloween my nephew told me he couldn't dress as  Jedi because there weren't any Mexican Jedi's and it broke my heart, what I told him is besides the point, but even if Cassian isn't a Jedi, he's someone to look up to and for younger generations to see themselves as.   Anyways I just wanted to share my 2 cents as a Star Wars lover and Latino about how excited I am for the new show because representation matters in media and this could be really important for younger generations and Diego Luna deserves it (he's also going to be leading Narcos season 4).”
  • Peter asked what MCU side characters would you like to see get a Disney Streaming series:
    • Alan Wise in Atlanta, GA wrote in “I would like to see a series featuring the three friends of Scott Lang/Ant-Man surrounding their X-Con business.”
  • HT and Chris couldn’t understand why Boba Fett was so beloved.
    • Declan from Toronto writes in “Love the Podcast and after today's show I wanted to shed some light on HT's and Chris’ question on why Boba Fett is a beloved Star Wars Character to a good portion of fans.  It really stems from the Star Wars Legends. There were several comics and books (Legacy of the Force Bloodlines for example) that expanded on the character and really detailed the complex background of Boba as well as how badass of a fighter and strategist he was. He was depicted as a true anti-hero. What George Lucas did to him in Return of the Jedi did not do him any justice and it's not the first time George exploited a potential great character for comedic relief (falling clumsily  into the Sarlacc pit). Just a point of view, and yes the action figures were badass as well 😄.”
  • Kolin from San José writes in “Hopefully you can help me out on this disagreement my cousin and I have. Do you consider going to a movie with someone “hanging out”?   If you go with your significant other, is it considered a date? Hypothetically, let’s say it’s just the movie and you won’t be getting food before or after. Thanks!”

On the November 8, 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film managing editor Jacob Hall, senior writer Ben Pearson and writer Chris Evangelista to talk about the latest film and TV news, including an unmade Stanley Kubrick screenplay, a Jonny Quest movie, Watchmen tv show news, ILM goes to the small screen and Pacific Rim is getting a Netflix anime series. And in another edition of Advice Corner with Chris, we will find out if an aspiring filmmaker needs to move to Hollywood to pursue his dreams.

In Advice Corner with Chris Evangelista:

  • Response to the last edition:
    • Gabe from Richmond Va writes in: This question of when to show kids certain movies jarred a memory loose. My mother took my brother and I to see Ghost when I was 9 and he was 7. Yes, Ghost the Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg vehicle. At this point I had seen all the star wars movies, Indiana Jones, gremlins, etc. Ghost scared the shit out of me because of the frank display of death. It just terrified me. For what seemed like a month I tried to sleep with the lights on because the deaths in the movie haunted me. Eventually I got over it, but damn it broke my 9 year old brain for a few months.   Thanks for the segment!”
    • Kevin H writes in “Good advice on the show. The part you missed is that no matter what you show the child, be ready to answer any questions. Sometimes it can be a great to teach a lesson even if your just an uncle that they see once a week. For example the movie Eighth Grade. Even though its rated R it's a great tool to educate kids. “
  • Nicholas E from Chicago Heights, IL writes in “Hey, I wanted to get your thoughts on something that’s been weighing on my mind for the past year. To give some back story, I’m an aspiring filmmaker, probably like a good portion of your listeners. I spend a lot of free time writing/outlining full length scripts that I feel strongly about. Within the past few years I’ve co-written and co-directed a short film with a great team of actors and crew, and I directed a documentary I made for a loved one. Since then, my main collaborator h as made the move out West to pursue his passion in filmmaking by going to school. And I guess my question is, with all of the risks that come from moving across the country, finding a new job, finding a place to live, etc. do you think it’s something worth doing? Or do you think I should stay home, focus on my writing, and try to find a group out here in Illinois to work on a full length film with? I’m not completely sold on film school, but I’m not opposed to it. My main concern is being able to the cost of living while while trying to peruse very costly goals. I hope my question made sense, but I think this Advice Corner is pretty cool and entertaining.  Much love -
