The Rabblecast

We start off by talking about Guillermo Del Toro and his body of work as far as writing, producing, and directing. Blade 2, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, The Devi's Backbone... just to name a few.

From there we talk about the Hollywood studio system and what it sometimes takes to make a movie or a movie franchise. The Writer's Room, finding a good Director, assembling a good cast, etc. The list could go on and on.

A few twists and turns, awards ceremonies, a quick political rant, and a non-commerical for a shaving company round out this episode.

1994 saw the release of The Crow, starring Brandon Lee. The movie itself is a cult classic. Action, drama, romance, and revenge over the loss of love set to a soundtrack of rock and roll, metal, and electronic music.

On this episode we start with a discussion of this soundtrack and how it influenced us. We also reference an article that gave us some more insight into an album and movie that is 25 years old this year. Original songs, covers of older songs, songs being swapped out... we take a look at different aspects of how it all came together.

We also talk about the music industry and how it used to operate. Music rights, contracts, and how some artists can end up penniless after years of performing and touring.

And last but certainly not least, we talk about the recent cancellation announcements from Netflix regarding their string of Marvel shows on the streaming service. The cancellation announcement was followed by an open letter from Jeph Loeb(the current Executive Vice President of Marvel Television) teasing the possible continuation of the shows on another platform.

All of this and much more!
