Steve Mines, Rob Brydon, Joaquin discussed on Little Gold Men

Little Gold Men


English comedy, where he, he both can sorta let go improvise like the wittiest funniest people, but there's also this analytical aspect to it that English people have were they, they understand why something is funny. You know was like, well, what if you say like this and this and this, and then you wait for the third part, and then you say the third part after a pause, then it's funny like right, Steve has that incredible ability almost like a writer -ly ability to to analyze comedy like that. So when we're working together on doing, you know, laurel and hardy in these famous bits and scenes from their movies and songs and dance numbers. So it was really great because a lot of it, we had a kind of reinvent because a lot of their theatrical show that they did sort of lost in the sands of time. But yeah, having someone like Steve was incredible, Steve. Another one, like I'm really lucky partners very well. Well, it's saying again, one of the funniest people have ever met, but it's true. Well, it's funny when you say that that kind of analytical approach to comedy, it makes me think of the famous scene from the trip when he is arguing over how to impersonate Michael Caine. Yeah, exactly. It's like, no, that's like that's Steve all day long every day. Like. I mean, that's a brilliant thing about those trip movies, which I love him and rob Brydon. It's like they're real friendship and a lot of the stuff that they goof on. Just exactly the stuff that they actually talk about and realize he doesn't come off the easiest guy in the world Steve to be around in those in those movies. I mean, yeah, I think that's, but I think that's part of the humor, you know, like right being a dick or being assholes, like funny, you know, and Steve mines in an actual real life. He's very humble and like loving person. You still can be a real smart ass of course, like his characters, but he's not nearly as much of a dick as he plays on TV. Do you have a favorite western? Well, I grew up in the, you know, I was born in sixty five. So like all those Sergio, Leoni movies and Clint Eastwood movies. The kind of like more classic westerns of the of the nineteen forties and fifties. That stuff seemed a little bit corny to me growing up like I was more. More interested in the weird ones like the good, the bad and the ugly and outlaw Josey Wales and those kind of things. I don't particularly have a favorite one. I do like, even though this is not in the time that I just described, but high noon is really a beautiful movie because Gary Cooper has such empathy and there's such a such a real human quality to him that to see someone trapped in this violent. Like, you know that situation he finds himself in just seems so desperate. Well, it's funny, high noon in relation to this film because you're Carrozza that are almost exactly out of high noon. Yeah, there's one part where have this shoot up by myself while Joaquin's characters. Wounded. Yeah, I have to handle this situation by myself and the geography of that town on the way the shot's set up. I think I think Jack purposely was looking at certain shots from high noon for that, but also, and that totally sounds right. And they are reminiscent put also. Just that ally, your character is kinda trying to get out the same. The reluctant sort of gunslinger you know, is maybe a bit of theme. Well, if you look at the chew these guys, you know the story of the sisters, brothers when they were little kids, they had this abusive alcoholic father who was beating them and their and their mother, and they eventually had to get rid of this guy. And when they did that trauma as children as what propelled them into their life of murdering people that turns out they were good at their repressed as a service. So there's a sympathy that you have for them because it's almost like these child soldiers like hear about these situations in Africa, some places in the war-torn parts of the world where children are pressed into battle. And I mean, how do you fall to child for doing that? You know, you're pressed into this life before you even develop any empathy or any spirituality, or you become like a fully realized human being..
