Dirty Sons of Pitches

With more room to give thanks this month, take a listen to Ben's personal podcast still going strong, "This Meets That" where he watches movies and tries to pitch a new creative project based upon the both of them. This is a sub-series of his "Anthologist" podcast widely available online. Give it a listen and see what Ben thinks going back to Christopher Nolan's 2010 Oscar-winning action thriller after almost a decade and seeing a 2017 film from a first-person perspective about a future of implosions.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" took extra time to deliver an extra helping of their podcast right before a holiday known for people gorging themselves. The gents are sharing another pairing of Movies That Made Us, films that had a formative impact on who they are, and this family edition looks at movies that their dads still guilt them over having seen in the theater for their children. For Ben it's the 1997 Power Rangers movie "Turbo," and for Nate it's the 1990 sequel "The Never Ending Story Part II." Both sequels, both bad, and both dads are right to continue holding this over their sons' heads.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are bringing back a formula they haven't had since summer 2018, and they're looking at old failed TV pilots to analyze and wonder what could have been. This episode features two sci-fi pilots, both pushing two episodes in length, and each with sci-fi/fantasy genre bonafides attached, George r. R. Martin's 993 "Doorways" and Bryan Fuller's 2014 "High Moon." One feels like "Sliders" and the other feels like little else.

Episode 283 includes:

-R.I.P. Alex Trebeck and Sean Connery.

-Johnny Depp removed from "Fantastic Beasts 3."

-Nate says if you're a fan of "The Craft" you should skip the reboot/sequel, "The Craft: Legacy."

-Nate and Ben finally watch "The New Mutants," the movie that's been delayed since 2017, and they wish they hadn't.

-TV Pilots -- "Doorways" (1993) and "High Moon" (2014)

-"Doorways" is like "Sliders" but written for the dumbest common denominator. 

-"High Moon" has goofy characters, a mystery on the moon, and geo-political machinations, plus a giant robot dinosaur and magic Indian mystic warriors.
