About the Title of This Episode

A play on “The Remains of the Day” and The Force Awakens’ Rey character.

Topics

  • Star Wars and Marvel movies forever
  • New Rey theory – she’s Han and Leia’s kid!
  • Batman v Superman’s Darkseid omega symbol
  • Agent Carter Season 2, Episodes 1 and 2
    • Zero Matter – same as in Agents of SHIELD?
    • Great characters – Whitney Frost, Dottie Underwood, Dr. Jason Wilkes, and Ana Jarvis (Jarvis’ wife was AWESOME!)
  • The Man from UNCLE movie, Will Smith’s Focus, Ocean’s 12
    • How all three movies were enamored with their gimmicks, snappy dialogue, and colorful characters.
    • Better alternative: The Losers (with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Zoe Saldana) or most James Bond movies.
    • Ron Howard’s Rush
  • X-files mini-series, Episodes 1 and 2
  • The Remains of the Day
    • When I first saw it decades ago, I thought it was about unrequited love between Mr. Stevens and Miss Kenton. But watching it again, it’s more of a cautionary tale against tunnel vision, close-mindedness, and denial.
    • Was it a cautionary tale about:
      • being married to your job
      • living in quiet desperation
      • not knowing what’s happening in the world
      • denial – Stevens went out of his way to not know what Lord Darlington was doing or why he was doing it (sympathizing with the Nazis, firing the Jewish girls)

Just one dollar will help prevent unnecessary kittens being born and help with overpopulation. If you give just one dollar, you’ll feel good about yourself. Promise.
