Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, welcomes his fellow Imagination Connoisseurs into a discussion of “all things geek” in episode #201 of ROBSERVATIONS.

Topics of conversation include:

  •  The title of the next James Bond movie is NO TIME TO DIE. Like it or hate it? Why don’t we all go to London and check out the premiere? 

  •  What’s up with the new Joker movie? The director describes it as “provocative” – but what is the filmmaker trying to do?

  •  Does the new Joker movie underscore the “power of allagory”?

  •  Will you watch the Joker on screen even if there’s no Batman in the film?

  •  What’s RMB’s reaction to the news that Spider-Man will be leaving the MCU and return to SONY as an exclusive property?

  •  Is 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY the greatest science fiction movie of all time?

  •  What’s the upside to CBS and Viacom merging? Rob responds to Aaron Johnson’s letter.

  •  Is “diversity” being forced when it comes to casting films and television shows because of a political agenda in Hollywood? A viewer asks the question and Rob responds.

  •  If there was an agenda in the entertainment business, Imagination Connoisseur, Dieter Bastian, claims he found it in Episode #200 of ROBSERVATIONS … Rob is all about the chips.

  •  Is The Orville too close to Star Trek: The Next Generation that it should be considered as a “rip-off” rather than a “tribute”?

  •  Are we going to see more co-productions between US and Chinese studios and filmmakers? Rob explains why this makes sense.

Plus SuperChats from viewers, more letters and breaking news.
