Episode 194 Transcript:

Emma: You’re listening to The Stunning Mess Podcast, your cozy consolation pay attention, and this week we’re discussing the film Now and Then directed by Leslie Linka Gladder and starring Christina Ricci and Demi Moore. An oldie however a goodie. 

Elsie: Sure, it is a great film. I’m excited to debate it. 

Emma: Yeah, me too. However earlier than we do, Elsie mentioned she had a private opener. That’s what we name these segments and it’s some loopy story that she hasn’t informed me but, so I’m listening to it for the primary time. 

Elsie: Alright, who’s able to be horrified, terrified, and freaked out? 

Emma: Me, me, me, me. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay, good. Alright. So the opposite day I purchased this superior large portray on the flea market ’trigger I had this concept that I might, mainly, it’s like a large portray of a sea scene with a few boats and stuff, and it has the shore and it has a moon and it has a sky. That’s what it seems to be, and it simply seemed like an old-timey portray with an attractive gold body, and it was actually massive. And so I had the concept I used to be gonna take it house and paint somewhat pirate ship and a few little fairies and a few little mermaids on it and make this Neverland portray, for our visitor room upstairs ’trigger we’re making the sort of like an adults and children visitor suite upstairs. So anyway, I did it and it turned out so cute. So Marigold was simply waking up from her nap, this was simply a few days in the past, and so I used to be like, Goldie, I completed the Neverland portray, it’s upstairs. Do you wanna see it? And he or she was like, yeah, and so we went upstairs. And Nova was nonetheless asleep and Jeremy was downstairs within the kitchen watching baseball. We bought up there, so exhibiting her, you realize, just like the pirate ship and the mermaids after which the fairy tree, it glows at nighttime ’trigger I discovered some glow-in-the-dark paint. So I used to be like, let’s take a look at the glow at nighttime. So we sort of caught this large portray into the closet, barely match, and we bought into the closet and we shut the door. And now you realize the place the story’s going. 

Emma: I don’t. Did you get locked in? 

Elsie: Yeah, and it wouldn’t open. And so we have been on the third ground, and for a second I used to be like, okay, we’ll get it open. I used to be like simply exhibiting her the portray and making an attempt to not overreact ’trigger I didn’t need her to freak out. I didn’t need her to really feel any dangerous vitality from me ’trigger we have been in a really small area collectively. However I used to be sort of feeling round and it was virtually utterly darkish with somewhat hole alongside the floorboard. A little bit, we might see out. And to be clear, the fairy lights did preserve glowing the complete time we have been on this closet, which was quarter-hour. So I began first similar to screaming, you realize, Jeremy, Jeremy like that, making an attempt to get him to listen to, after which it was Nova. Nova later claims that she might hear, however she was too drained to examine what anybody wanted. 

Emma: Wow Nova. Wow, Thanks for nothing. 

Elsie: I do know, and I used to be banging on the door. I imply actually loud. For quarter-hour I might say might be a great estimate. I’ve no approach of realizing how lengthy we have been in there, nevertheless it bought very popular. I knew that it was going to be okay, there was by no means a second the place I assumed they gained’t have the ability to discover us. Or they would go away the home with out us or one thing. ’trigger I knew they’d discover finally that we weren’t there, nevertheless it took approach longer than I assumed it will. Like quarter-hour being trapped in a closet with no cellphone, we didn’t have something, we solely simply had the portray. And yeah, it was the worst, it was the worst feeling ever. So now I would like to instantly get these locks eliminated off the closets up there as a result of they’re sort of harmful and freaky. Anyway, after a very long time Jeremy heard me screaming after which he ran up there and he was actually sorry and he felt dangerous. 

Emma: It’s sort of far, I’ve been over at your home, it’s on a 3rd ground.

Elsie: It’s an attic mainly, and it’s fairly nicely enclosed. So I sort of knew he wouldn’t have the ability to hear and he had a baseball sport on. 

Emma: Yeah. Actually, I’m shocked he did hear you ’trigger I’m fascinated by somebody being on that third ground and being down within the kitchen.

Elsie: I sort of was like laying on the bottom, placing my mouth as much as the crack, holding my hand there in order that I might get probably the most potential noise out of the outlet, and Marigold was doing it too, she was taking part. Anyway, that’s our story. 

Emma: That’s hilarious. I assumed it was gonna be both one of many children painted over it when you have been achieved, or I assumed perhaps there was gonna be a rat within the closet or one thing. You realize, one thing the place you couldn’t escape it. 

Elsie: Properly, the unsettling factor is it is a closet that has one other attic door inside it, and I’ve seemed inside it earlier than with Nova and it’s sort of scary, so I simply needed to like flip my mind off to fascinated by it whereas we have been in there as a result of, in a horror film approach, it will’ve been horrible ’trigger we have been for positive trapped in there there was no approach out. I used to be slamming on it. I couldn’t break it down. 

Emma: Properly, within the youngsters’s e book model, you guys bounce into the portray and simply sail away within the pirate boat as a result of that’s the best way out is into the portray. And you then get to the top of the film and it was all a dream and also you have been caught within the closet the entire time, and your dad and mom lastly got here. 

Elsie: Okay, so again to the topic. Anyway, a consolation rewatch, I attempted to look at this film with my children and it was too boring for them. They think about it an grownup film, and truthfully, I watched it with Jeremy final night time and it was, it was good. It was enjoyable. It was cozy. My overview of it was I had watched it as a baby, after which this was my first time to look at it as an grownup and I might undoubtedly put it into our cozy rewatch rotation. It’s very candy. It does have that feel-good. However I assume I used to be anticipating it to have extra of an enormous story. It doesn’t have an enormous story nevertheless it’s fairly chill and it’s fairly delicate, I might say. 

Emma: Yeah, it’s, and it has fairly dramatic moments too. So, I had by no means seen the film earlier than. So I first watched the trailer being like, what is that this film that we’re gonna do? As a result of, we’re sort of breaking out of the consolation rewatch, I suppose, since technically I hadn’t seen it earlier than. So I watched the trailer and I used to be like, oh, I feel I’m gonna love this as a result of when you’ve by no means seen Now and Then, which I hadn’t, it’s primarily a few group of younger women and it’s their coming of age summer season. They’re all like 12, 13, and they also’re sort of rising up. They’re better of buddies they usually make a pact that in the event that they ever want one another after they develop up, they’ll get again collectively. They’ll reassemble they usually try this. Certainly one of ’em is having her first child they usually sort of reassemble they usually’re mainly reminiscing about this summer season that they spent collectively. And so many of the film is simply seeing the summer season when these women are rising up, after which somewhat bit, it flashes ahead to love who they’re within the current tense because the grown grownup girls, and it’s actually candy. After watching it 5 out of 5 ruining the ending right here but when I used to be going to redo it, I might say, I don’t even know if we’d like the grownup half. I’m like, simply present us the children’ Summer season. You could possibly have simply made the entire film simply the children’ summer season. 

Elsie: Actually? 

Emma: Yeah. 

Elsie: I just like the backwards and forwards. 

Emma: There’s one half the place one of many children virtually dies and also you sort of know she gained’t ’trigger it’s a child’s film, however as a result of I’ve already seen her as an grownup, I do know she gained’t. So to me, it virtually took away this dramatic second. Whereas I feel if it was simply the summer season, you’d be like, oh my God, is that this child about to die? Like, whoa, this film’s approach darker than I assumed, and she or he doesn’t. Additionally, an enormous bonus to this film, in my view, is that they do a seance and a graveyard a few occasions. And an enormous facet plot, which I feel sort of turns into the primary plot, is you’re making an attempt to determine what occurred to this one individual within the graveyard, Johnny, Pricey Johnny. They’re making an attempt to determine their story, and that’s what the summer season sort of turns into in a approach. And I sort of really feel prefer it may very well be virtually a Halloween film as a result of there’s a lot within the graveyard and like ghosts and It’s sort of a darkish story of what occurred to that household. 

Elsie: Rattling. Possibly they missed its true calling. 

Emma: I used to be like, when did this launch? Did it come out earlier than Halloween? ’trigger I felt like there have been some spooky components for a child’s film. After which the half the place one in every of ’em virtually dies like in a drain, and it’s like, wow, that’s darkish. Additionally, when she goes down there, I used to be like, is it about to point out up since you’re down on this drain, and I simply really feel like there’s about to be a creepy clown any minute now, however there wasn’t. 

Elsie: I hate the drain factor. I simply can’t think about that anybody would ever wish to attempt to go inside one. It’s completely horrible.

Emma: It’s. Yeah. Properly, throughout rain too. It’s like, oh my god. Yeah. My recollections of first watching this film the opposite night time is I liked it.

Elsie: Yeah. I keep in mind watching it as a baby. I knew it had Christina Ricci and Thora Birch. I didn’t keep in mind anything about it. Just about. 

Emma: That’s a reasonably all-star solid. As soon as I used to be watching it, I used to be like, Rosie O’Donnell, Rita Wilson. What? What’s taking place right here? Yeah. It’s like a reasonably all-star.

Elsie: Yeah. No, I like all the casting. It’s very nice. Yeah. So, okay. So far as decor inspiration.

Emma: Earlier than we speak concerning the homes can we simply shout out to the gaslight lamps within the neighborhood? The neighborhood is called Gaslight one thing. Gaslight estates, I wanna say.

Elsie: Gaslight District or one thing.

Emma: I don’t know. It’s one thing, and every of the little outside sconces in entrance of individuals’s homes, just like the streetlights are flickering, it’s like fuel lit by propane or no matter. 

Elsie: I like these sort of lamps.

Emma: I used to be so into it. I don’t know in the event that they’re harmful. I do know nothing about them.

Elsie: Oh, they’re not harmful, plenty of folks have them. 

Emma: However I used to be like, that is so charming. Yeah. I like these gaslight lamps, I used to be so into that. I liked that element. I felt prefer it have to be in somebody’s precise neighborhood someplace, ’trigger it was actually particular they usually confirmed it a couple of occasions and I liked it.

Elsie: Sure, I liked the element as nicely. Certainly one of our buddies, I gained’t say who, ’trigger perhaps that is like violating their privateness, however one in every of our shut buddies lives in a, like, what’d you name it? An old-timey-themed neighborhood and it sort of seems to be like that with the lamps, you’ve by no means been there. 

Emma: I don’t know who you’re speaking about. I really feel like they’re secret, protected as a result of I don’t know who you speaking about. 

Elsie: All of the streets are named after previous authors or books or one thing. I’m making an attempt to think about some extent, in any case.

Emma: It’s most likely like Charles Dickens’s approach or one thing. 

Elsie: Yeah, it has like gazebos.

Emma: Shakespeare circle. I don’t know. What are we doing? 

Elsie: Yeah, I feel it’s like Jane Austen and Charles Dixon’s theme or one thing. I don’t know. It’s cute although. Anyway, these neighborhoods do exist is my level. I didn’t have sturdy decor reactions to this film, I’ll simply say upfront. For me, probably the most nostalgic half was the general feeling and for me, my favourite rooms that have been proven have been for positive the tree home and in addition the grandma’s attic after they broke into the grandma’s attic. These have been the vibiest locations, and I additionally just like the small-town diner.

Emma: I liked the diner and the psychic’s home. Once they go to get the tarot card studying or no matter it’s they’re doing precisely. Her home was cool too, with all of the beads and the doorways and issues like that. It felt very, It’s the vibe.

Elsie: Eighties meets Tarot Woman. 

Emma: Yeah. It was like a dressing up. It was like a Disney trip, nevertheless it additionally felt good and I liked it. 

Elsie: Oh yeah, that’s a good suggestion for a Disney trip, now that you simply point out it. 

Emma: Like a psychic studying, and it may very well be like previous, current, future. We don’t have to design that proper now. Let’s focus. Okay. So my favourite rooms although, I did love Chrissy’s bed room. She has pink and white stripe wallpaper in her room. That’s the one. Bonnie Hunt’s the mother, and it’s coming and giving her the intercourse speak. However it’s not actual intercourse speak, it’s flowers and gardening intercourse speak, and also you’re like, uh oh, this isn’t gonna be useful. And that’s all you’re pondering within the film. However the wallpaper seems to be similar to old skool Peter Pan, their bed room wallpaper, like within the e book. I learn that to Oscar on a regular basis, he loves that one. So I used to be like, oh, that is the Peter Pan bed room wallpaper. It’s not Peter Pan’s bed room, however like Wendy and her brother’s, their playroom, the nursery, it’s like pink and white stripes. And I used to be like, this seems to be similar to Chrissy’s bed room. That’s fascinating. After which I additionally actually like Teenie’s room. Thora Birch and her character develop as much as be a film star, and her bed room was simply very seventies, groovy, orange and yellow and pink. 

Elsie: That’s true. Her bed room seemed like a modern-day house Instagrammer. It was very vibey and completed out, she had her built-in colours matching her wallpaper and stuff.

Emma: And so they talked about that her dad and mom are sort of nicely todo or nation membership folks, I feel it calls them or one thing. So I used to be like, okay, I assume it is sensible as a result of her bed room, I used to be like, it is a good bed room. I don’t know what your childhood bed room was like, however mine was extra like posters tacked up on the wall, you realize? So I used to be like, wow, this room is fancy, I used to be fairly into it and yeah, liked the tree home. It had an attractive rail round it. I used to be sort of obsessed in the entire film that they stored saying it was like $124 they usually’re making an attempt to save lots of up the cash for this tree home. And I used to be like, this tree home value $124. I do know that is set approach again within the day, however actually? After which additionally, who’s gonna set up this? Whose dad and mom put this tree home up, ’trigger it was like three tales up. It was approach up within the tree, that they had like three ladders snaking up there. 

Elsie: They did sort of HGTV somewhat bit on the tree home as a result of they mentioned it was $120 and you would purchase it from Sears. However any individual has to place that package collectively.

Emma: And there’s portray concerned critical portray. Yeah. Not like simply sprayed it. 

Elsie: There was lots occurring. It was very elaborate. I’m undoubtedly in my tree home period making an attempt to get my children an epic tree home, so I used to be very invested in that. 

Emma: I didn’t assume they confirmed the within sufficient both. I used to be very upset. I attempted Googling it later and there wasn’t something on-line both, and I used to be upset. 

Elsie: In case you don’t present the inside of your tree home throughout all 4 seasons and the key holidays, then don’t even make a film about it. 

Emma: Don’t speak concerning the tree home as a result of Yeah, it’s such as you’re not even exhibiting it to us. God. Yeah, I didn’t really feel like there was sufficient. And on the very finish of the film, one of many characters had her child, they usually’re all up within the tree home speaking and the child’s up there. And I used to be like, okay no, as a result of I noticed that there have been three ladders to stand up into this tree home. You’ve gotten a new child child up there. How did you climb up these ladders with that child? I didn’t consider that half. I used to be like, Nope. I’m not calling it an unsafe state of affairs. I’m simply saying I don’t see how you probably did it. I don’t assume so. 

Elsie: You might want to droop your disbelief for that somewhat bit. 

Emma: I used to be like, why’d you’re taking the child up there? Treehouses are the place to flee the child for a couple of minutes. Go away it together with your mother for a couple of minutes. 

Elsie: Oh, Emma. 

Emma: Anyway. What else? What else, what else? 

Elsie: They’re simply making an attempt to painting the circle of life.

Emma: I assume that’s true. 

Elsie: Don’t take that away from them. 

Emma: I’ll say perhaps the interiors weren’t as, I imply, they have been fairly nice, however there simply wasn’t as a lot of them.

There was plenty of being exterior. They’re on their bikes lots. There’s lots taking place outdoor. So I really feel just like the film’s somewhat extra about that. They’re within the graveyard lots, however I did really feel like there was some fairly good style inspiration on this. I do know we’re following round like preteen women, however I nonetheless was like, I just like the shirt, I like these shorts.

If Madewell was promoting this, I might purchase it, I’m fairly , it was all cute. 

Elsie: Yeah, they have been undoubtedly lovable and I liked their grownup variations, seeing how they dressed as nicely. It’s very candy. It’s such a great film. 

Emma: Yeah. Demi Morre’s character, I feel she’s sort of science fiction. She had these braids up on her head. 

Elsie: She was like a brilliant hipster. 

Emma: Yeah, undoubtedly. Type of a Benik kind or one thing, very emo. However yeah some other inspirations from the film? They do plenty of life classes ’trigger one of many women virtually dies, and one of many women has a lifeless father or mother. Certainly one of ’em, the dad and mom are divorcing, and she or he meets the brand new boyfriend and that’s a complete second. 

Elsie: Oh my God. Certainly one of my favourite traces from the film was when she mentioned, I’ve heard that in a couple of years, 50% of the inhabitants might be divorced. And he or she’s like, I don’t consider that. It’s like, oh my gosh it’s such a loopy change for our nation when no-fault divorce turned authorized. It’s very totally different. 

Emma: Very totally different. Oh, the scene the place they meet the vet who’s performed by Brendan Frazier. He’s a Vietnam vet, and he appears to be hitchhiking, and he sort of has a limp. And they also sort of speak about that he bought shot within the wars, I consider what his character says, however he’s purported to be a Vietnam vet so he’s gotten again from Vietnam considerably not too long ago, I feel, what the film’s telling us. And that entire scene to me was like actually bizarre. ’trigger I used to be like, what’s taking place? This man appears to be like a younger man, like an grownup, and there’s all these pre-teen women and he’s like letting them have a cigarette. On the one hand, I’m like, okay, he’s making an attempt to be pleasant, however alternatively, I used to be like, is one thing bizarre about to occur, I don’t know, my radar was up. 

Elsie: That’s true. My radar was up as nicely. And did you discover that there was a scene the place their grandma brings ’em into their lounge and she or he serves all of them, I feel alcohol as a result of they’re all choking on their drink, and It seemed prefer it may very well be lemonade, however they’re all like choking it down. So I feel that’s what they have been implying. That is actually humorous as a result of yeah, we undoubtedly didn’t have grandmas who served us alcohol after we have been 12 years previous. That will be so cool. 

Emma: And there are plenty of cigarettes within the film. Like mini characters are smoking. Which, no matter however I simply really feel like motion pictures don’t try this as a lot now, so I used to be similar to, oh yeah, that is an previous film. Again after we have been way more chill about this ’trigger it’s a child film for positive, not less than a household film.

Elsie: That’s true. It’s undoubtedly outdated, however I sort of consider in accepting outdated issues for what they’re.

Emma: Properly, smoking’s the worst factor that occurs within the film then It’s like, that’s not that dangerous. ’trigger it’s fairly simple to inform a child, smoking heads up causes most cancers. It’s fairly simple. It’s simply fascinating. 

Elsie: Yeah, I assumed the small city, just like the Essential Avenue strip, was additionally actually cute. I at all times prefer it after they have that in motion pictures. ’trigger that’s one thing that being from Missouri, we see, we see cities that look that approach lots. Our city doesn’t look that approach, however plenty of like communities, little surrounding cities the place our grandma’s from there are many locations that look that approach and it’s, it’s so candy.

Emma: Yeah, somewhat, having somewhat dinner made me consider the diner we used to go to with our grandma rising up. Oh yeah. It felt very acquainted, nevertheless it didn’t really feel like my city, which I feel is sweet. I think about {that a} praise. They have been like tapping into one thing sort of common, not less than to me. However oh yeah, I liked it. Ought to we do some trivia? 

Elsie: Let’s do the trivia. 

Emma: Okay. First, so the 4 youthful variations of the women have been solid first, and after the adults have been solid, they watched the footage of the younger women’ performances to tell their very own. 

Elsie: That’s good. 

Emma: Do you actually assume that, how plausible do you assume that was although ’trigger I used to be like, I like this entire solid. And everybody did a terrific job, however I didn’t really feel prefer it was like, oh yeah, they solid these two folks ’trigger they sort of look alike, or their mannerisms felt comparable. I used to be similar to, okay they usually solid two nice actresses, one who’s a baby and one who’s an grownup and that’s that, you realize? However I didn’t actually really feel prefer it was like, oh yeah, they appear so comparable.

Elsie: To be 100% trustworthy, I feel they simply picked well-known folks too. 

Emma: That’s what I feel. I’m not saying it’s dangerous, however I’m similar to, I don’t know. I don’t really feel like they bought my mannerisms precisely. I used to be like, I don’t know. 

Elsie: That’s true. Like have you ever watched the present Yellow Jackets? 

Emma: No. 

Elsie: It’s like a latest present they usually have like a youthful and teenage model or an grownup and teenage model of the identical characters, they usually look lots alike. And so they actually promote it. They didn’t try this, no. 

Emma: Or when the brand new Hocus Pocus got here out this previous 12 months, that one I felt just like the little women, the younger, I don’t understand how previous they’re, I feel they’re younger women, however within the film, they felt like they watched the previous Hocus Pocus to me or Hocus Pocus lots ’trigger they simply did little issues just like the older actresses. And I used to be like, oh they’re undoubtedly doing somewhat little bit of an impersonation of them somewhat bit, and I assumed it was so good. It made me assume like, wow, they’re such good actors. ’trigger they’re clearly making an attempt to be this different individual, a youthful model of this individual. So anyway. This film didn’t try this, in my view. Shifting on. 

Elsie: Okay. The subsequent trivia is Thora Birch, who performs Teeny, had by no means ridden a motorcycle earlier than this film. That’s so humorous, I like tales like that. 

Emma: Robert Pattinson, that was a few of the trivia from Twilight. I feel we learn on the podcast. 

Elsie: That he didn’t drive a automotive.

Emma: And he needed to be taught there within the wet space. Yeah, to need to be taught to trip a motorcycle after which do it in a film. I imply, I assume you’ll be very motivated to be taught. She seemed nice. 

Elsie: I assume, yeah, to be honest there’s most likely like at all times one thing like Emma by no means actually realized to make use of curler skates. 

Emma: I nonetheless don’t understand how. 

Elsie: After which for me, I can’t keep in mind what my factor could be, however there’s most likely undoubtedly one thing that I simply by no means realized that I’m simply too afraid of. 

Emma: Are you able to ski?

Elsie: Undoubtedly can’t ski. 

Emma: There you go. There’s one thing. I can’t actually ski both. So when you needed to be in a film the place they’re like, you’re gonna ski previous the digicam now, you’d be like, nope. I don’t understand how to do this. Okay. Samantha’s little sister within the film was performed by Demi Moore’s oldest daughter Rumor Willis. 

Elsie: Oh, that’s candy. 

Emma: Isn’t that cute? 

Elsie: That’s very cute. 

Emma: I couldn’t even inform in the course of the film, after which I really feel like I noticed some promo factor or one thing that was like, right here they’re years later or no matter. ’trigger I used to be making an attempt to lookup extra treehouse footage, primarily. And I used to be like, oh, it’s her daughter. I didn’t even discover in the course of the film. She’s so little within the film. However I used to be like, oh cute. That’s cute. I don’t even know if that they had the identical days of capturing, most likely not ’trigger the older actresses are like by no means in photographs with the younger ones. However I nonetheless was like, that’s actually cute that they’re each in the identical film.

Elsie: That’s very cute. Okay. Marlene King wrote the film when she was 10 years previous and mentioned it was about her group of buddies rising up. That’s lovable. I like that. 

Emma: I like that. Yeah. So cool. 

Elsie: When she was 10 years previous, although. So that you’re making plenty of predictions concerning the future. That really makes their older selves make extra sense to me. I feel I settle for them extra now.

Emma: As a result of they appear extra generic somewhat bit?

Elsie: Yeah, like extra of a visualization of how life could be than an actual individual. 

Emma: Yeah. ’trigger I did really feel just like the youthful variations, there have been plenty of sort of particular issues and particular issues that didn’t even go wherever essentially. They didn’t at all times ladder as much as one thing larger, which to me felt very true to life. It’s not a memoir essentially, however nonetheless I liked it. It did really feel very very like childhood to me. So it kinda is sensible to me {that a} child truly wrote it as a result of it actually felt like rising up and it was good. So good for her. 

Elsie: Good for her. I adore it. Okay, charge this film from zero to 5 seances. Okay, I’m going to offer it a 4 out of 5. I feel if Rosie O’Donnell’s character would’ve had a popping out, I might’ve given it a 5. I feel it wanted that.

Emma: Thought it was gonna occur.

Elsie: I used to be ready for it then it didn’t. I felt prefer it was gonna be a terrific second, after which it simply sort of didn’t, in order that’s the one flaw I can discover in it although. I feel it was very cute. 

Emma: No, I liked it. I’m gonna give it 5 seances. Liked it a lot. 

Elsie: It was cute. And thanks to everybody who wrote in. So our podcast editor, Jillian helped us select this film as a result of she mentioned it was one of the crucial requested motion pictures we’ve ever gotten in our e mail. So e mail us anytime at [email protected], which film you wanna see and we are going to do it. I imply, Emma had by no means even seen this film earlier than.

Emma: I’ve by no means seen this one and I liked it, so thanks. I really feel like we now have plenty of Mandy Moore motion pictures in our future. That’s what I’ve been seeing lots within the podcast field, which is enjoyable.

Elsie: I like that. 

Emma: I do know. I’m enthusiastic about it. The long run is vivid. 

Elsie: Okay. Yeah, I do know. That sounds good. I feel that fairly quickly both the following one or the one after that might be full in Halloween film mode, which might be good. 

Emma: We nonetheless have to do Jurassic Park. And I used to be like, perhaps that may very well be the very starting, like transitioning as a result of it’s a little scary, nevertheless it’s not likely a Halloween film.

Elsie: It’s not a Halloween film. 

Emma: Yeah. So I used to be like, we gotta get that in earlier than summer season’s over although. It’s unbelievable.

Elsie: Do you assume that I might let Nova watch it or do you assume I can’t? 

Emma: I imply, you would begin it and simply inform her to say cease when it will get too scary as a result of not less than she’ll get to see the child dinosaur and the egg that’s the like the perfect half as a child. However then it will get, I feel, too scary after some time. 

Elsie: I feel you’re proper. 

Emma: Then she may be like, no, not this half.
