Enjoy the Show: The Stranger Things Spectacle - Enjoy the Show.03

 On January 11, 2016, in the town of Austin, TX, 12-year-old Jon Risinger vanishes mysteriously. Jon's frantic mother, Tyler Coe, searches for him with an M41A Pulse Rifle and flamethrower while Police Chief Marcus LaPorte launches his own investigation into the design of the batmobile from Batman Forever. Unfortunately Jon has no friends so no one else went looking for him.

    FUCK YOU JON!!! Cardboard cutouts?!?!?! If you really had been watching the show since the beginning, AND PAID ATTENTION, then you would know these characters inside and out. You would love them and hate them for all their triumphs and faults. Oooooohhhh Jon, you motherfucker you. I like you Jon, I really do, but you are wrong about The Walking Dead! You're Dead wrong.

      The Walking Dead is not a good show. Everyone accepts it, moves on and keeps watching it.

    I think the best part of Stranger Things was just that the design was satisfying.  You took one look and knew where you were and the whole context of the people occupying the space.  You knew their demographic, their income, interests, and life.  But not only that, it was pretty.  Like, in all honesty this sounds unintelligent but the way it was shot and made just made me think "This is pretty" right off the bat.  Movies like La La Land and Wes Anderson's works do that too.  You just sit there and before you even care about the characters you think "This is a well designed pretty piece of film".  If you think that before the story even begins, you know there was time and care put into the piece and it doesn't matter how cliche a story is (like La La Land) because you are hooked on the imagery.

    I actually got to go to the LACMA to see the del Toro exibit. It was amazing to see all of those props and the art from of most, if not all, of his movies. I'm super glad Marcus brought him up because I would have definitely picked Pale Man for my favorite.

    i still don't understand how everyone says rogue one played it safe. they spend the entire (fairly long-ish) movie building up these great characters, and then killing them all off very abruptly.

    Love the show Jon but the monologues are the one bit I'd like to see cut. The discussions are fun. The mini games are fun. Just drop the little speeches about movies.

    Also I want Marcus and Tyler on more shows. Marcus and Tyler on RT Podcast please.

    I'm surprised Tyler didn't point this out, but pacing was a huge problem with Stranger Things. If a movie was being made with the exact same plot, it could have disseminated the same information in much less time.

      That's the difference though between long form TV and short form movies.  You have far less time in a movie than a series.  That's partially why book adaptions are leaning towards short series (A Series of Unfortunate Events is one example), because you get more detail and a longer draw toward a reveal.  Yes, at times Stranger Things is slow, but so are a lot of movies.  But if Stranger Things was a movie, I also think we wouldn't have gotten the wonderful character development that we got.  Movies are a quick way to enjoy a story, but I think TV is a great way to make people continuously want to sit down and watch your content.  Sorry for the long winded response.

    As regards bad set design the plastic icicles in Batman & Robin always stands out but something that should have gone the practical route maybe that ended up being terrible cgi is the scene in Wolverine Origins in the bathroom where Logan examines his claws in the mirror. They just look so fake it's hard to suspend disbelief. It's bad.

    A favourite weapon of mine has always been Robocop's pistol. It just has so many cool elements from the long barrel, to the burst fire to his finger twirl before his thigh opens up and places it inside. Just all round very cool.

    I feel like we really owe Mad Max a special thanks, I feel like it brought practical effects back into the spotlight. This isn't to say no one was using practical but the aclaim it garned really reminded everyone of how good practical with a touch of CGI could be.

    I've enjoyed the hell out of these test episodes! I can't wait for more. In terms of movie weapons, one of my favorites is Robocop's 3 round burst pistol. That thing is so damn cool! Also, in terms of the nostalgia thing, Stranger Things did an excellent job of immersing one into that world without trying to hard. A movie that felt a bit like it was trying to hard was the J.J. Abrams movie Super 8. For bad set designs, gotta go with Attack of the Clones. Watching that agin recently was orettt damn rough.

    Along with set design, effects, and sound design, the soundtrack can make a big difference. You mentioned the music in Stranger Things, but Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Guardians of the Galaxy, and others had a soundtrack/score that really helped me get into the movie, even if it had some flaws. Kubo and the Two Strings in particular has an amazing soundtrack that's an essential part of that story. I tried to think of movies that have a bad soundtrack, and nothing came to mind. My fiance suggested Daredevil (the movie), but I haven't seen it.

      Bad soundtrack for me would be Rouge One, I (unlike Jon) really liked the movie but the soundtrack just wasn't good.


      Counter to that would be Tron: Leagacy, I didn't enjoy it but I love the soundtrack

    The thing with Barb is that they wrote the show expecting their audience to be grown up versions of Nancy and Steve; the popular kids. When really a lot of the people who watched Stranger Things were more like Barb and Will. The show writers expected a reaction along the lines of 'I knew someone like that at school' not 'I was someone like that', hence the feeling of being cheated by Barb's death. They didn't expect us to care about her as much as we did and so didn't give as much time to her as a character.

    Preach it Tyler. Citizen Kane is a tedious slog. I appreciate what it did for film-making, but it is not the greatest film of all time. It might be the most influential film of all time, but the greatest film of all time is obviously 2004's Starsky & Hutch. I never get tired of that movie.

    I really like this show. I love having the different topics for each episode that sort of revolve around one main show/movie. However, I don't really care for the intros and outros with Jon just talking to camera. It feels out of place from everything else and disturbs the flow of the show. Overall though: great show. Keep it up.

    I have to say the beginning seemed really unnecessary to me because although they did read some comments it was just kind of reiterating points made last episode (Which i didnt really agree with, but whatever) I wanted to get to stranger things and discussions about nostalgia because clearly it interested me enough to watch this episode in particular. Just my opinion,

    I really do like this show but the intro and outro feel a little bit too scripted, although I'm sure Jon will get more comfortable and natural sounding when reading those bits as time goes on.


    Also I'm so glad they spent so much time on set design and coloring, because I feel like unless it's for a movie like Grand Budapest, those elements get vastly overlooked when they are some of my personal favorite parts of a movie/show.  I agree 100% on what they were saying when they mentioned that the set design didn't just focus on 80s aesthetic, but 70s as well, and how that made the setting infinitely more convincing.  


    I'm really hoping they spend some time discussing sound design and film scores. Although I'm not as invested in movies as I'd like to be, I know for me personally, music and sound design can make or break a video game instantly.  I'm curious to know what movies have had a similar impact (besides the obvious ones like Star Wars and Indiana Jones).

    Best weapon: Elder Wand; iconic

    Favourite Creature: I loved everything in the Silent Hill movie. The careful detail into not only the costumes but also into the performance makes that so much creepier. Using dancers for monsters was brilliant.

    Favourite Set: Torn between a Werewolf Boy which pefectly captured living in a rural setting, plus had beautiful colour tones and framing, and Super 8 which gave me the well done nostalgia that Stranger Things also revived

    Worst design: The Last Airbender movie. The cartoon was so meticulous in it's world building and design but the movie completely messed it up (along with literally everything else but anyway). Details like changing how bending looked, changing the races of the POC main trio, Aang's tattoos, Zuko's scar looking like 10 years old opposed to 2 years old. It was just a train wreck and that's not even getting started on the actual content.

    In terms of creature designs some of my favourites are the various characters in Pan's Labyrinth, as well as the Angel of Death of Hellboy II. Major props to Doug Jones and Del Toro. A nostalgia thing since it doesn't hold up particularly well, but I love the Gmork from Neverending Story. I say love, I mean it gave me recurring nightmares. And not so much a creature, but I loved the evolving design of Jack in An American Werewolf in London. 


    But my absolute favourites are the designs of Weta Workshop. I don't even know how to start.. Obviously, LOTR was a huge achievement in terms of design and special effects. Just to list some of the other projects they've been involved with there's Mad Max Fury Road, District 9, and Avatar. For me, watching the behind the scenes of LOTR growing up was what fed my passion for design and worldbuilding.

    Tyler talking about how the Friends set almost being it's own character reminded me of one of my favourite set dressings which is the entirety of the asylum from American Horror Story: Asylum. Watching clips from behind the scenes of that season and learning about how that set was designed and put together is what sparked my interest for set design.

    Really loved Marcus on this. It was good to hear his POV on this stuff.


    One movie that came to mind on the subject of depicting the future was The Martian. Things like the labels on all the products people were using (grape juice, salt and pepper, etc.) or everyday items (clear stapler) felt like a natural projection of what could be the popular aesthetic in the near future. It was very subtle, but felt very intentional.

    I agree with Tyler's Citizen Kane rant.  Not all movies should be art.  Sometimes they should just be fun and enjoyable. Popcorn movies.

    Jon, great show.  I love the fact that you get the chance to get up on your soapbox and talk about whatever the fuck you want, even if I don't completely agree with you.  I do wish there was a bit more character development in Rogue One, but the fact that it's an emotional slog is, in my opinion, the point of the movie.  You pretty much know going into that most, if not all, don't come back from the mission.


    Favorite weapon:   As much as I would like to be different, I have to go with the lightsaber.  That bloody thing has been a part of my life for literally longer than I can remember.  


    Creature design:  The ROUSs from The Princess Bride.  Point of fact, also my favorite movie for anytime watching.


    Set design:  I'm with Tyler on this, the Alien movies.  Any of them, but particularly the first movie.  You're terrified simply due to the tension created because you're on one, small spaceship.


    Keep the the good work, and looking forward to seeing what you do next

    Scott Pilgrim is one of those few films that blew me away in the cinema. I remember watching the opening title sequence with the loud music and flashing vibrant colours and really cool cartoonish effects and thinking "Oh I'm gonna like this film"


    Everything in that movie (and Edgar Wright movies in general) felt intentional, every effect, sound, and piece of dialogue. It made it all so fluid and natural. La La Land also felt brilliantly intentional in the same way that I just really enjoyed. It's the exact opposite of a lot of recent comedy movies (e.g. most Paul Feig stuff) where you can tell so much is improv because it drags out certain jokes in really awkward stuttering ways.

    My uncle is actually in charge of building the sets of Stranger Things. The set designers give him and his team their ideas and tell them what they want done, and he is in charge of finding/getting the props and building the sets. Which I think is pretty cool. He absolutely loves doing it, and he is very excited for everyone to see season 2.
