SHE has spoken: Misty Rosas, performance artist for Kuiil the Ugnaught, from The Mandalorian, is on the show today.

More topics include: - Her first profe…

In a HUGE deviation from our normal episodes, we have come up with a game, and decided to spend an episode introducing it to give you a taste of the premium episodes you can find on our Patreon page (repeatviewpod). It was a breezy and hilarious use of our time, (and now your time,) to say the least. Subscribe to Repeat Viewing wherever you listen,…
 
The first time anyone caught a glimpse of the now infamous bounty hunter was in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. Yep. That one. We talk to Boba Fett's animator, the great John Celestri all about it: how Lucas got involved, what their inspirations were, and just a ton of great stories. Some other topics include: - Growing up wanting to be an anim…
 
As a vital Presidential election looms, and our "commander in chief" just spent a weekend in the hospital, coming out somewhat altered by the experience, Ivan Reitman's "Dave" from 1993 seems the only film we could possibly discuss this episode, and it's more relevant than ever! We chat about the endless layers of satire, humor and heart, and how t…
 
The Armorer herself, the great Emily Swallow, from The Mandalorian, is on the show today. "This is the way." It was so great to be able to dive deep into her instantly iconic performance. We talk all about what it was like to work in The Volume, be directed by Dave Filoni, Deborah Chow and Taika Waititi, and the influences and experiences she broug…
 
To hopefully complete an unintentional theme, we honor the recently passed, highly influential Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by talking about the documentary with her initials, and then some. We weigh her impact in the court against our current national crises and share one of our best, most politically open minded conversations yet. …
 
The incredible work that Gavin Bocquet did with his team to bring worlds like Naboo, Coruscant and Geonosis to life in The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, cannot go unsaid. This is a really rare interview with someone who made an indelible mark on the saga, as well as things like Young Indiana Jones, Dark Crystal: Age …
 
Our biopic trilogy of appreciation in memory of Chadwick Boseman comes to a strong close with Marshall, the 2017 courtroom drama directed by Reginald Hudlin. As we mourn the passing of RBG, this story of the first black Supreme Court Justice was a timely watch and discussion in more ways than one. We peel back the dense layers of nuance, performanc…
 
We're LIVE and talking to Teek herself, Niki Botelho from The Battle for Endor. This is a pretty short, fairly rare look inside making the second Ewok film, as well as Niki’s return as an Offworld Jawa in The Mandalorian ... and if that was her as Teek in the Star Tours boarding video. (And, of course, since this was recorded live, some of our audi…
 
Our celebration of Chadwick Boseman continues, with easily his funkiest biopic, Get On Up, directed by Tate Taylor. We discuss the very unique story structure, immersive make-up & costumes, use of music, and above all, Boseman's bravura chameleon performance. Plus we take a long look at the many fascinating and well rounded characters that populate…

If you don’t know what optical photography and compositing is, this episode is a crash course in all of that, including what is was like working alongside the Dykstraflex, mi…
 
With the recent sudden and shocking passing of Chadwick Boseman, it seems only right to honor his powerful work toward equality and the portrayal of positive, powerful black role models & icons. He left a strong legacy in an incredibly short career, and perhaps no film anchors that legacy better than the story of Jackie Robinson, 42. We discuss the…
 
Star Wars fans will know Ms. Owen best as the Kaminoan Taun We in Attack of the Clones, but she has done so much (including a return in Revenge of the Sith as Senator Nee Alavar). From humble beginnings growing up in New Zealand, to first working with Temuera Morrison on Once Were Warriors, we went through so much of her incredible career (whether …
 
After a three decade wait, the world has finally received Bill & Ted Face the Music, so it's only fitting that we close our sci-fi block with their entire trilogy.

His work has spanned the prequels, the sequels, the spin-offs, Star Wars Insider covers and even the introduction of Darth Maul’s robotic legs, so it was a real thrill to be able to dive into the career of Aaron McBride, as well as his process and his inspirations. Some topics discussed: Blade Runner and Ridley Scott, interning on The Phantom Menac…
 
As a companion to our recent episode covering the film 1984, we tackled the unholy progeny of that story, amped up on steroids and bureaucracy-- Brazil. What genre IS this movie? How is it aging with all that's happening in the world? Just what the hell is up with the genius madman Terry Gilliam?? All this and more! Subscribe to Repeat Viewing wher…
 
As the Art Director on The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm Design Supervisor for The Last Jedi, and Production Designer during The Rise of Skywalker, Kev Jenkins has made an indelible mark on Star Wars. From designing the sequel trilogy to recreating classic sets like the Lars Homestead, this is such an incredible deep dive into an equally incredible care…
 
In what is surprisingly our first anime film, we cover perhaps the most famous of them all in Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira. Does this 32 year old animated feature measure up to today's standards of pyrotechnic visual marvel? Does it deserve it's rank among anime and cinema in general? What circumstances allowed a movie like this to get made? We dig into…
 
Silas Carson played 4 different characters across all of the Star Wars prequels, especially known for his iconic portrayals of Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi and Trade Federation leader Nute Gunray. Yup, same guy. (Listen closely to when he starts doing voices of these characters and figure out if you can hear me have a minor freak out.) Mr. Carson's tim…
 
Our wild ride through the prophecy laden science fiction of the 1980s continues, bringing us to the meanest possible streets of old Detroit. With it's avalanche of bravado, social commentary and wit, the undeniable classic Robocop is ripe for another installment, even today. But how does the 2014 remake stack up against the OG Robo, and what does i…
 
From Stomeroni Starck in The Last Jedi to his roles in Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper and as Trooper Wagner in Knives Out, Noah Segan (and his frequent collaborations with director Rian Johnson) has been simply incredible.

Our Science-Fiction-Social-Commentary exploration continues with the inescapable 80's action entry, the Running Man, loosely based on the book by Richard Bachman aka Stephen King. We discuss the world building and execution of both formats, along with the 1980s world that spawned both, and the super stark, startling reflections of our own world tod…
 
Today I’m talking to Scott Trowbridge, Portfolio Creative Executive and Studio Leader at Walt Disney Imagineering, who helped spearhead Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the land we now know as Black Spire Outpost. It was a huge honor to learn more about his background, story and experiences, as him and his team created a tangible Star Wars world from s…
 
In perhaps our most detailed exploration so far, we dive into the '84 adaptation of 1984 by Michael Radford, weighing the quality of translation, the missing & present underlying themes, the classic story's applications to modern society, and what Orwell was up to with this idea. Plus, a TON of creative pondering on what a modern adaptation might b…

The incredibly talented artist responsible for the designs of Jar Jar Binks, Sebulba and so many more in The Phantom Menace is the legendary Terryl Whitlatch.

In an episode that was destined to happen, we tackle one of our mutual favorite films, and share a compelling, dense discussion about it, as well as it's subject, brilliant 1980s painter Jean Michel Basquiat. As artists, we have a unique perspective on this film, as well as the world it portrays, and that angle leads to one of our best dissections …
 
For a last minute tribute to Pride month, we dive into the best picture winner from 2016. While many have discussed it, we felt it worth a fresh look in these times, and dig into it's connections to the issues at the core of Black Lives Matter, but more importantly, we dig even deeper into what it offers emotionally and philosophically, as well as …
 
In an upbeat companion to our previous episode on Boyz in the Hood & Clockers, we follow the thread to relevant and connected tales, one an epic music biopic, the other perhaps THE quintessential stoner movie-- both are directed by the uber-talent F. Gary Gray. We tie everything together thematically between all four films, while also lavishing spe…
 
Continuing our discussion about the core issues at the heart of the Black Lives Matter protests, we turn our eyes on policing and the systemic marginalization of black Americans through two definitive classics. It's another talk laden with hard truths and fascinating observations, but also plenty of heart and fun along the way, because that is what…
