Liq- Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Fowler discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour


Guess I don't wanna. I don't wanna spoil, but within the scene in which she sort of explains the modern art pieces. He's other form, which is the end her explanation of it is funny enough, right? But what they actually acted out and actually like stage, it comes across as really disturbing. Oh, this scene is dragging on a little bit longer than it is comfortable. Right. It makes you question like why she's in the movie to begin with. Right. She's she does the thing that the girlfriend as always does, which is like she's there to ground the protagonist in this case look Stanfield, but she's not really doing anything else in this movie. I talked to him about this by the way I, I was just like, what do you think about that? And how do you feel about that? The way that she, I don't know if the word is protected boots Riley for making the choice that he did with her character was by saying, my character is the most like boots boots made me in his image, the artist and activist the radical artists. Yeah, I just wanted. I guess I just wanted more. I just liked Tessa Thompson. I'd like to see more. I felt like they didn't necessarily flesh out. Her status as the conscience of the movie. The way I think she was intended at one person that we didn't talk about who was very charming to me. And I saw this movie twice and I was charmed by him. The second time was Germain. Fowler he plays liq- Stanfield best friend in the movie Salvador, and I thought he was just funny and his comedy was timed perfectly. He is a comedian in real life and he's just somebody that I'm going to be looking out for in the future because this was his first feature film, and I hope he's going to be another's are appreciated. He gave a little bit of a jolt to the to the scenes he was in, and there are points in this movie that fall a little flat. And I think having him come in and give a little bit of a pop to scenes definitely helped. We haven't talked about Steven young. I, I wasn't that impressed with him actually, and I love him. I know you do. I know he's, he's your booth, and you had a lot always sort of like the animating force for he sort of voices. A lot of the anti capitalist critiques like right directly, but they don't do much with them like, and there's also this. Implication that he in kind of a romantic rival Thompson and he and the key Stanfield is supposed to be like fighting for affections, but that doesn't really go anywhere. Yeah, I don't. I mean, that was weird. I would have cut that out actually. Absolutely. If I could be at it this film, that's one part. I would get rid of a feel like a homeless commentary moving will be like, if I If could. I could. I feel like a lot of people would reedit this film and a lot of different ways. Do they feel like a lot of the choices he made were deliberate and he really wanted to throw us off and he really wanted to challenge our expectations is if you're and I think that he did that, he made us uncomfortable and he made us feel like, oh, this is weird, and maybe some people will call it a mess. Gene Denby. Like I said, I think it was a challenge and I think he did that on purpose. It wasn't come out of this movie with like no opinion, right. Movie like set up for you to be like, oh, well. I came out of theater, not tweeted like what the hell was that engineered to keep you off balance. And if you if you know that going in, I think you'll you'll probably come out of it better. Nice. Well, that brings us to the end of our show. We want to know what you think of sorry to bother. You guessing that there.

Coming up next
