Movie Dogs, A Willy Wonka Prequel And More
This week’s show dives into news surrounding the supposed confirmation from Zack Snyder that his Justice League Director’s Cut has shifted from a 4-part mini-series to a full, 4-hour feature film on HBO Max. News of Chris Evans in negotiations with Marvel to return as Captain America hit the trades just as we wrapped up the show last week. We debate whether that’s a good idea, and what it would take for us to get on board. There’s word of a Willy Wonka prequel story in the works with Tom Holland and Timothée Chalamet favorites for the role. Why? Well, we don’t know either. This week’s BlendGame honors our favorite pups from across cinema history with #MovieDogBlend. Next week, you can play along on social with #DenzelWashingtonBlend, and let us know your favorite performance from the monolithic talent Denzel Washington. *This Week In Movies* --------------------- - The Kid Detective (VOD) - The White Tiger (Netflix) - Our Friend (Limited/VOD) *ReelBlend Premium!* -------------------- Sign up for an extra episode a week, a bi-weekly newsletter from Sean, and ad-free episodes at ( ). *ReelBlend on YouTube* ---------------------- Be sure to subscribe to ** ReelBlend ( ) on YouTube ( for full episodes of the show in video form. *Follow The Show* ----------------- ReelBlend - *@ReelBlend* ( ) Sean - *@Sean_OConnell* ( ) Jake - *@JakesTakes* ( ) Kevin - *@KevinMcCarthyTV* ( ) Gabe - *@gabeKovacs* ( ) *ReelBlend Merch* ----------------- We have all kinds of fun merch for dedicated Blenders to flaunt their fandom with pride.

BPS 104: How to Create Story & Character Conflict with Eileen Cook
Today on the show we have best-selling author and screenwriter Eileen Cook. She is a multi-published, award-winning author with her novels appearing in nine languages. Her books have been optioned for film and TV. She spent most of her teen years wishing she were someone else or somewhere else, which is great training for a writer. She’s an instructor/mentor with The Creative Academy and Simon Fraser University Writer’s Studio Program where she loves helping other writers find their unique story to tell. Her best-selling book Create Story Conflict: How to increase tension in your writing & keep readers turning pages is a must-read for screenwriters. Here's a bit about the book: Conflict is essential to story—regardless of genre. The friction between what a character wants and the lengths they will go to reach that goal is what pulls readers through your book. Great conflict is what leaves readers cheering (or crying) at the end of a story. Using humor and her deep knowledge of human behavior, counselor and award-winning author Eileen Cook will guide you through the causes of conflict, the differences between internal and external conflict, and show you how conflict resolution techniques can be turned upside down to ramp up the tension in your book. Filled with practical tips, examples, and prompts, this is a craft book you’ll keep on your shelf to use again and again. Enjoy my conversation with Eileen Cook.

Frank Oz and Derek DelGaudio Use Creative Anarchy to Break Things in 'In & Of Itself'
Can you be more creative about being creative? It's hard to put Frank Oz and Derek Delgaudio's In & Of Itself into words. That's how they wanted it. It's something that must be seen to be... not believed? We keep the interview spoiler-free, diving into what inspired this anarchy, what moved Oz and DelGaudio to build something new, and break things in the process. After I switched off my recorder and took in all Oz and DelGaudio shared, I walked into the other room to find my children watching... "The Muppets." It served as a reminder that Frank Oz's drive to create things with a purpose and risk failure by being different, results in a legacy and an impact that echoes for generations. We are motivated to create things for a variety of reasons. Frank Oz and Derek DelGaudio were motivated by some of the best reasons. Oz said working with DelGaudio reminded him of the early early days with Jim Henson when they were just trying things. Breaking things. Discovering things.  More than success, the highlight is always concocting something new. There is no guarantee that you can find the type of success Oz and DelGaudio have. But there is a guarantee that you can find the same joy if you pursue things the way they did. Let their anarchy guide us all to taking chances, evading definitions, and breaking molds. In & Of Itself is NOW streaming on HULU.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
