Two Cents 066: The “Live-Reaction” Must Die

The episode in which Steve returns from vacation, we talk about delays (notably of our Patreon’s launch), The Birdman/Revenant team is returning for a VR experience, Disney is trapping Jon Favreau in the “live-reaction” genre, Elon Musk shares his Mars colonization plans, California is going to prohibit IMDb from sharing actors’ ages, Amazon ushers in a new era of internet services by introducing Twitch Prime, and USB Type-C is readying to kill the headphone jack. Plus, PSVR exclusivity windows, Twitter is up for sale, more VR rollercoasters, Rogue One’s composer shuffle, the Stephen King shared universe, Netflix’s content shelf life, and the VR applications of YouTube Go.

Two Cents 031: #OscarsSoWhite

The episode in which we used a hashtag in the title so we never have to talk about this again, China continues to take hold in Hollywood, Netflix crosses 75 million subscribers, HBO goes 100% streaming in Spain, Amazon and A24 buy up Sundance, Rob Cohen is making a natural disaster/heist flick, Greta Gerwig is trying the director’s chair, Labyrinth is getting a reboot, Tarantino universe tidbits, Star Wars Episode VIII moves to Christmas, Kevin Smith made a pot dispensary pilot, Judd Apatow gets another TV show, and I accidentally placed a cool Netflix sci-fi movie announcement at the end.
