Love your podcast. Listen to it daily. I heard you guys talking about the new subtitle for the Girl in the Spider’s Web. I thought someone would have mentioned it by now, but this book is not part of the original trilogy that Stieg Larsson wrote. As you probably know, he passed away after completing the first three books. This is not a direct sequel to the Girl with a Dragon Tatoo. I wonder if Sony is trying to make sure people know it’s set in the same universe and not a stand alone movie. Anyways, that’s just my 2 cents. Keep up the good work.” Scott A from Alameda, CA writes in “Hey Gang -   I implore each of you to check out The Rider. It is a masterful film. While I did not connect with the subject matter as much as other films, the artistry of Chloe Zhao, her cinematographer, and editor are what truly elevate this film. Using a wonderful juxtaposition of wide shots to emphasize the emptiness of the South Dakota landscape with extreme close-ups touching upon the claustrophobia of Brady's tragic situation, the film highlighted the type of director that Zhao is. The Rider was in my top 5 at the half-year mark and while it may have since slipped down, it is definitely a film worth watching. I think Chris, especially, would love it.   A high recommend and I think Marvel hiring Zhao is an inspired choice.   Keep up the great work!” In response to our Predator episode:Prince from New York City writes in “I will agree that everything went downhill at the Cadillac commercial in the woods but your complaints seemed...looney.  Plot holes in a Predator movie? Really? We enjoyed the movie (except the final scene). It was fast and fun and dumb. You don't go to Applebees for fine dining. And you don't go to Predator movies thinking there will be no plot-holes.  Tighten up.” Jacob C from Mississippi writes “Peter,  I just listened to the predator spoiler episode and I cannot believe you were made fun of so much by how confused you were in the movie. I totally and completely agree with you on every point you made. The movie was edited extremely horribly and I couldn’t tell what was going on half the time. I shame Brad for making fun of you with a nerd voice. That was uncalled for 😂. It made no sense and it was a trash movie. Also the depiction of Tourette’s syndrome was extremely bad. My dad and I both have Tourette’s and we laughed the whole movie at Thomas Jane’s depiction of it because of how inaccurate and offensive it was. Tourette’s is rarely that severe, and when it is that bad it doesn’t look like that. Literally it’s only purpose was to set up some really bad jokes. Anyway I just felt the need to defend you because I can’t see how anyone could think this movie is good in any way. I’m very disappointed in Shane Black. Thank you for standing firm in your opinions.  Love the

Sean from Boston writes in “Chris, I am a young professional who, like many millennials, still lives at home.  It’s just my Mom and I, and for the most part our daily fair of shared TV viewership includes nothing but binging our backlog of Jeopardy, and House Hunters from the DVR.  Sometimes though we want to watch a movie, and this is what brings me to your corner for advice. Typically, when we decide we to watch a movie, my Mom insists on scouring the streaming services for something to watch, and this process can take what feels like hours. Not only that, but the films she often gravitates toward through this haphazard process are, shall we say, not of a high standard of quality.  I know I should be patient and flexible, but with so many good movies out there to watch, both new and old, I need a fair democratic way of selecting something to watch. I’d like you to take this opportunity to help friends, roommates, and significant others everywhere who are frustrated by the shared media consumption selection process, and come up with a set of rules governing this “Chris Approved” method.   Personally I’m partial to making a list of movies we each want to watch, then eliminate all that do not overlap, and go from there, but I leave this question open ended for you to be creative with finding a fair solution that is as simple, or as complex as you wish to make it.” All the other stuff you need to know: You can find more about all the stories we mentioned on today’s show at slashfilm.com, and linked inside the show notes. /Film Daily is published every weekday, bringing you the most exciting news from the world of movies and television as well as deeper dives into the great features from slashfilm.com.

Name Withheld writes in “I am a big fan of the show, I listen every day, and I have a question for Chris’ Advice Corner! There is a big movie coming out soon that I have been looking forward to for, literally, years. But things are financially tight for me so when tickets went on pre-sale, I did not get them immediately. My friends felt bad for me, knowing how much I want to see the movie, so they bought 2 tickets for me. A very kind gesture which I was touched by.    BUT! Unfortunately, they bought me 2 tickets for a showing at a nearby theater, the only theater in my area that DOES NOT HAVE PRE-ARRANGED SEATS. Ever since theaters started this practice, I will not go to a theater that doesn’t. Waiting in line for who knows how long just to get a good seat now seems like the Dark Ages to me. So the theater they picked is one I would normally never patronize. Just the thought now of having to get there extra early fills me with anxiety. I have no idea how popular this movie might be, so it all might be ok. Or I might end up sitting in the front row, or off to the side, etc., or maybe not even able to sit with the person I'm going with, in case there aren't 2 seats in a row.    I realize that if I don’t go to this screening and not tell my friends, then I am wasting their money. If I tell them I'm not going and make sure they ask for a refund of their money, then I might insult them and of course I don’t want to do that. Or do I just suck it up and go. What should I do? Help me Obi-Wan Evangalista, you’re my only hope!    Thanks, Name Withheld City Withheld But I Am A Real Person”   Other articles mentioned:     All the other stuff you need to know: You can find more about all the stories we mentioned on today’s show at slashfilm.com, and linked inside the show notes. /Film Daily is published every weekday, bringing you the most exciting news from the world of movies and television as well as deeper dives into the great features from slashfilm.com.
