#36 - Minority Report (Story and Film)

#36 - Minority Report (Story and Film)

July 27, 2020

Important links to support Black Lives Matter:

 

This week, we dig into a topic suggested by a listener! Maestro and the Doctor read the short story “The Minority Report” by Philip K. Dick and watched the Steven Spielberg film of the same name. We talk about the role of prose in conveying a story, why Joe needs a character he can root for, and the challenges of adapting conceptual science fiction into an action film. It’s always the most fun when Maestro and the Doc disagree. Thanks to the listener who sent us this episode idea!

Martha!!! This week, Doc and the Maestro talk about Zack Snyder, the filmmaker behind 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, and the DC Comics movies, more broadly. We dig into his visual style, underlying philosophy, and what he loves about superheroes. We also get real nerdy, and we try to keep it positive! No fan-boy hating here, just reasonable art criticism. This is Sparta!
