-Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series: a Retrospective, via Film News and Comment –

Your Hosts:  James Murphy and Dave Bond

WELCOME! Join us as we take you through the Tom Clancy /Jack Ryan series, via movie news and discussion, varying from Nolan’s Dunkirk and Dark Knight to James Bond and Indiana Jones..

Sit Back. Relax. And pour yourself a glass of liquid movie chat..Click on the link below and press PLAY..

‘WE SAIL INTO HISTORY’…

 

 

SHOW NOTES:

The show was recorded JUST before Tom Cruise had his accident while filming Mission:Impossible-6 (get well soon, Tom!).  And just after editing the cast, we learned the GREAT news, c/o Stephen Colbert, that Daniel Craig will return as JAMES BOND in the 25th 007 adventure (due November 2019).

 

Also covered:

 

  • Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK (still on general release: check it out!).
  • ‘DCEU’ developments / Ben Affleck’s future as Batman (it looked ambiguous, before Ben cleared the air at Comic-Con; but there are still reboot options should he move on).
  • The appeal of Indiana Jones and James Bond: can those characters be played as ‘older’? A fifth Indiana Jones film is due in 2020.

Main focus:  Tom Clancy’s JACK RYAN series. Paramount Pictures. Various Stars/Directors. 1990-2014. 

Geopolitical thrillers, the Ryan series could not be more pertinent in these uncertain times for foreign and domestic politics in our western democracies.

 

Thank you for Listening!
