What other movies have we been reconsidering?
Twin Films have a long history in the annals of cinema. “Deep Impact” and “Armageddon” are one of the go-to examples, but the phenomenon goes back to the invention of movies. Rarely do both of the twins succeed—Gone With the Wind overshadows Jezebel, Babe overshadows Gordy, and Girls Trip overshadows Rough Night. But sometimes the movie that loses is worth checking out, as is the case with Megamind, to which audiences reacted with general indifference after it was released in 2010 so soon after the similar Despicable Me.
In a bonus segment of the podcast, we reviewed Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. In our review, we discussed the movie and how it’s different from Ernest Cline’s book; the movie’s ideas; how Halladay is more like Mark Zuckerberg than Steve Jobs; whether we want to see characters from our favorite movies mush up against each other; and whether this movie represents the tipping point of the nostalgia industry’s popularity.
