Listen: King Kong, Lewis, Robert Downey discussed on The CultCast - Cult of Mac
"What else are we got? Okay. Finally. I think you knew what's coming. I saw nine times in the movie theater possibly ten. I I actually stopped counting. I actually bought it on I tunes. It's one of the few movies. I actually bought on itunes and four K because I love it so much Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle. That was this year. I know it's hard to believe, isn't it? I think it was at the beginning of the year. And I went into this movie thinking it was going to be a whole lot of suck. Just like I did the only other movie where I had low expectations that were similar where I was expecting to go in and think it was going to suck this as bad as movie was another Jack black movie called today's d the pick of destiny and like that movie. I went into this what I came out. And I was like I haven't had that much fun in the movie in a long time. And then I went back and saw it eight more times because movie pass was picking up the Bill. So why not I love the movie, it's so much fun. And it to me is a great depiction of classic fund cinema experience. There's nothing particularly magical about the story, but the characters and the casting all work really well together and the rock this. This might be his best film that he's ever made. And it really. It's cemented his position as a AAA actor in my mind, like he's done a lot of really bad movies. And after this when he did this this weird one called skyscraper. And then he did King Kong, which is another weird movie that I didn't see because it didn't look that good. So he has a few really great gems in his in his repertoire, and then he has a lot of bad ones. But this is the best one that he's done so far. It's probably the best move. It might be as magnum opus. We'll see. It was a really good performance. And the reason is it was the cast of actors, you would you would know working with this with cast of actors that were new and the the actors that you would know how had you had to learn the characters of the younger actors so the younger actors created their characters for their own roles, and then the rock and his cast had to learn how to act in character as the younger characters. So if you think about it, it's a really sophisticated piece of acting. It's kind of like Robert Downey junior in tropical thunder where he had to play another actor playing other actors, and it's impressive. I don't know how you put yourself into a role within a role. It's inception. Roles. What you're doing to three characters deep characters as other characters. It's really impressive actually. And it showed to me that he was a real legitimate actor. He wasn't just a wrestler trying to be in entertaining movies. I know that's weird to say. I mean, it's the rock, right? But but the guys talented. I mean, what can you say the highest paid actors in Hollywood right now. Very very much, and he does the eyebrow. Raise just like. Yeah. That's. It is not everyone can do it. I can do both Lewis. I could make them bounds up and down. No, don't make me dribble. Next time. I see him dribble for you. Okay leader. Give us your weird list of stuff. Show.."
