question of the week -
It's a podcast about drama movies.  Joe and Mike sit down and discuss older drama's and the question of "what would you do" in regards to making the movie for today's audience.
Taking these great movies and reimagining them with regards to the technological advances of today would be an interesting twist on the movies.

Why Don't They - The Beastmaster
Movie Synopsis
The Beastmaster tells the story of Dar (Marc Singer), the royal son of a king named Zed (Rod Loomis) who was stolen from the womb of Zed's queen (Vanna Bonta) by a witch under the command of vicious high-priest sorcerer Maax (Rip Torn). A poor villager saves Dar from being sacrificed and raises him as his own son, teaching Dar how to fight and witnessing the boy's ability to telepathically communicate with animals.

Book Synopsis
The Beast Master tells of Hosteen Storm, a Navajo[2] and former soldier who has empathic and telepathic connections with a group of genetically altered animals. The team emigrates from Earth to the distant planet Arzor where it is hired to herd livestock. Storm still harbors anger at his former enemies the Xik, and has sworn revenge on a man named Quade for his father's murder. According to Kirkus he finds "life and hope" instead.[2]
In this novel and its sequels Norton explores aspects of Native American culture, specifically the Navajo, through metaphors in Storm's life and in the culture he adopts on his adopted planet.
