Film Stand Ins? Did any TV shows actually end well? Why are we talking about Netflix yet again?
We're talking about Netflix again because in 2019, who isn't? But more so because of their decision to purchase the Paris Theater in Manhattan, New York. The Paris Theater is a single screen cinema which Netflix has taken over to exclusively showcase some of their feature films like "Marriage Story." Bola and Hugo also talk about stand ins, the position on set that both of them have performed many a time whereby the crew light and use another person while the actor rests and preps lines. Not only that, los dos hombres discuss the disappointing endings of shows like "Game of Thrones" and "Dexter" amongst others and whether skipping the introductory set up of a show is a good feature that Netflix have given to the world.

The Eternal Sleep movie
Bola and Hugo discuss Hugo's screenplay and forthcoming film, "The Eternal Sleep." They also delve into what it means to dream, what dreams are and some personal experiences they've had in their own dreams. The Eternal Sleep's premise: Set in New York City in 2010, The Eternal Sleep straddles the questions of life after death and the moral choices individuals can make about their own lives. The film revolves around an eccentric neuroscientist trying to find out whether we can stay alive in our dreams if we die in our sleep. We all wonder what happens after the final closing of our eyelids, Dr. Jacquelyn Walsh is no different. The only thing that could separate her from your average person is rather than the traditional view most people have of death being a passage into another higher realm, Jacquelyn believes it's actually just a continuation we visit on a nightly basis. She claims to know that dreams are in actual fact eternal life and that we already know where heaven and our souls reside - our minds.

Cancel culture? Why the Terminator and Charlie's angels remakes/sequels flopped... And Vancouver's Eastside Culture Crawl
Bola and Hugo touch on the oddities with the Jeffrey Epstein "suicide" and Prince Andrew's responses as well as our views on what is now described as "cancel culture," its nuances and revisionist approaches to older television and cinema in the light of modern culture's evolution. There's also some praise given by Bola about Vancouver's Eastside Culture Crawl, a mixture of art, film and sculpture put on every November in the city. We also follow up on a previous discussion about reboots and remakes and why "Doctor Sleep," the new Terminator movie and the Charlie's Angels remake seem to have flopped. According to the movie's director, Elizabeth Banks, it's because males are unlikely to go see female led action films. Is that the case?

"Parasite" or Gisaengchung by Bong Joon-Ho and beyond...
On the same day Evo Morales steps down as Bolivian president (or so we hope) amidst ongoing turmoil and protests in the country, we discuss what we think of "Parasite" or "Gisaengchung" by Bong Joon-Ho and sewn effects/layers in writing screenplays as well as a respective writer's forethought into a production's initial steps. We also skate around discussing the Marvel Cinematic Universe, why some films that should become hits don't and more. As always, check out brokenenglishfilms.com and keep your attention tuned into what we're doing next.

You've got to start somewhere... 'They' say.
So start in a trendy coffee shop in Vancouver, BC named "Breka bakery." A crowded place with good  coffee but one cash register and one espresso machine making you queue up to wait for your caffeine.  Eventually you'll receive it and can record your nostalgic trek into the physical media of your childhood and spend time pondering and complaining about the modern movie theatre experience. In this episode Hugo and Bola finally get the podcast underway, beginning the Broken English podcast.  Check out brokenenglishfilms.com and support the indie film company you're about to fall in love with, possibly...
