Listen: Jason Statham, Steven Spielberg, Oscar discussed on The Next Picture Show
"Hold true. Dickel to keep the line between the paste. Someone out of. And Antoon take -sition of living beat. We may be through in the past, but the is not through with us. Welcome to the next pitcher. Show the week podcast devoted to a classic film and how it's shaped our thoughts on a recent release. I'm tasha Robinson here with Genevieve kofsky. Scott Tobias is vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. Were venal mayor has just given the go-ahead for tourists to return to the beach after a couple of mysterious tourist devouring accidents that we probably don't need to give any more thought. It'll be fine here in the next pitcher show, we believe that no film exists in a vacuum. And that all culture is more interesting in context. So every week we get together to talk over classic film and consider how it relates to a current movie this week. We're living every week, like it's shark week or at least we're living this week and next week. But like like, they're both shark week you get. We're talking about sharks. When I'm saying Keith, you've got a couple of whiskies in you. It's been a grim quiet night here in the studio, d maybe have an Oscar worthy monologue for us about what's up with our current pairing. He was coming back from dinner and head into the navy, pier macadear in Chicago, we just got our popcorn. We took our seats, three hundred critics and special guests. What into that screaming? None of us came out into the middle was over, but we took two hours to play beating the see that CGI shark until at least an hour in it was a Michael Don, the Meg, they called it prehistoric thing, two million years old, twenty five meters long. If it was an inch, you know how that you can tell when you're watching the movie, the exposition, the damned exposition, go into shock review, looking to see someone eaten by a shark and felt like we didn't get it for a week. Just a bunch of Jason Statham taking his shirt off and growling at people that stay thin. He's hot lifeless, eyes, movie hero. Tough guy is hardly even looks live until he goes to punch a mega ladonna in the face. Well, we formed ourselves into podcasting groups to talk about it. You know, just bunching up together to compare this new, shark movie. Meg to the mother of all Steven Spielberg's jaws ever been frightened of comparing two movies before now, but I think we may run aground. Once we start talking about how much one of these movies run shallow, and one runs deep anyway, which liver in this podcast. Well, you lost the Oscar, Jack Nicholson, but really think you got robbed on this one gave. So this week we're inspired by the latest killer, shark movie, John turtle tops, the Meg, and we're going to be looking back on the shark movie that kicked off the idea of the summer. Blockbuster made Steven Spielberg, a household name proved. It was possible to make a film better than the book that inspired it and set the stage for generations of horror movies that tees at the monster without showing it until the end. Oh yeah. On next week's podcast, we'll talk about the Meg to stay with us. I don't know about you, but when I knew I glass frames, I spent a lot of time reviewing all my options using are going to be front and center on my face every single day. I don't want to end up committing to a look. I'll wind up regretting.."
