CAPTAIN MARVEL and the problem with nostalgia

Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, takes a look back at nostalgia (see what we did there?), CAPTAIN MARVEL and much more in today’s Robservation, including …

  • Did CAPTAIN MARVEL steel a bootleg Nine Inch Nails t-shirt in her movie?
  • RMB takes a closer look at the very human trait of viewing the past in a way that sets an impossible standard for the present to reach (let alone surpass) – by the way, here’s a link to the piece Rob references in his commentary
  • If you can only choose one Hot Toy figure, what would you choose? RMB has a few pointers …
  • Who owns the rights to Kang the Conquerer? Will he eventually be a part of the MCU (or not)? 
  • What would a David Cronenberg-directed Star Wars look like – sit back and let Rob break it down for you (imagine Videodrome meets Attack of the Clones).
  • Why should you want to watch old movies (like from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s)?
  • The future of FREE ENTERPRISE: THE WRATH OF SHATNER (the sequel to RMB’s FREE ENTERPRISE feature film) – will it happen, or not?

… plus super-chat questions from viewers and more!
