1:15 – The Bad Batch on Disney+

Disney+ will air the Clone Wars spinoff show The Bad Batch in 2021. It will follow a team of Clonetrooper Special Forces during the fallout of Revenge Of The Sith. It sounds like The Bad Batch, lead by their Space Rambo leader, could a Star Wars version of The A-Team. Will that connect with fans? It certainly seems possible.

17:00 – Marvel MCU Secret Wars?

The Russo Brothers, who directed the last two Avengers films, have dropped hints that they would like a crack at adapting Secret Wars to the big screen. Are they serious? Could it be done? And do you need Doctor Doom? (Spoiler: YES!).


27:45 – Ian Holm

Sir Ian Holm may best be known for portraying Bilbo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings films. However, he had geek cred in films like Alien, The Fifth Element, and horror titles like From Hell. He had film credits dating back to 1957.

32:30 – Carl Reiner

Comedian, actor, director, producer… Just about any kind of job to be had in Hollywood Carl Reiner did. From the 2000 Year Old Man skits to Hollywood blockbusters, his career was unparalleled.

37:40-Ennio Morricone

One of the most prolific careers in cinema history. Train calls him the John Williams of Italian Cinema. His IMDB Page has 520 credits, including movies that haven’t been released yet.

48:15 – Charlie Daniels

Charlie Daniels transcended all musical genres. He was Country, he was Southern Rock, he was Gospel. And he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind. His most known song is “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” which was a crossover hit on the Billboard charts. As Train said, they don’t make them like him anymore.
