0:00 - Intro
19:50 - Avatar sequels delayed
29:35 - Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky
55:30 - Q&A
55:40 - If you could be any celebrity for an entire day, like Being John Malkovich, who would it be and why?
59:26 - You guys have expressed your disapproval of filmmakers tampering with their old films, but what do you think of this particular concept? Can this additional (and notably optional) new cut add to the original cut’s themes of fatalism, cosmicism, time, and morality – or perhaps withdraw meaning, removing the essence of what made IRREVERSIBLE great? Thoughts on this decision? And since all of you seem to be fans of his work (incl. Jared), will you be watching it?
1:02:58 - You guys have discussed the superhero movie phenomenon a myriad of times in the past. Even though superhero fatigue has been brought up after some major releases, it seems that this train is showing no signs of stopping. So, how soon do you think this trend will finally die down, and what subgenre do you think might take its place?
1:11:41 - Spielberg chose not to accept any money for his work on Schindler’s List and instead donated his salary. Do you think other directors that make movies about horrific events in history should do the same?

Ralph recommends The Dollars trilogy for next podcast. (A Fistfull of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly)
