The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are recording late having just gotten out of a "Ready Player One" screening, and in honor of Steven Spielberg's sci-fi time machine, the guys pitch VR properties, soemthing they amazingly haven't done over the course of 206 other episodes. Along the way they chat about film award eligibility, the Real Dolls, what "gourds must predominate" means, the strange discrepancy between the "Sherlock Gnomes" trailer and its final product, whether we look to theme park rides for our vital historical truths, and why editing the podcast is better for the listeners.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 207 includes:
-I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want... a Spice Girls cartoon series twenty years too late.
-Indiana Jones 5 in 2020.... yay? Will he be in an urn?
-Steven Soderbergh's movie shot on an iPhone is a cruddy looking movie that looks like it was shot on an iPhone.
-The guys saw "Sherlock Gnomes," were flummoxed by the trailer scenes never appearing, and LITERALLY had someone who worked on the movie contact them to answer their theory. A DSOP exclusive!
-"Ready Player One" is first-class spectacle and little else.
-This Week's Pitch -- Virtual Reality!
-Ben pitches a widow bringing his family back to life via VR, a CSI team to recreate final memories of victims in VR, and a man who can download skills to his brain who is being hunted by the government.
-Nate pitches a VR simulator where you can plug in communication and data from an ex and still have them appear via special glasses.
-This Week's Game -- None!
