"Do you recommend nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine the haunting jacob. I think it's hilarious. That king was involved with us at some point. 'cause after i watch this i did not know that i'm like oh. This feels like something we would watch that. Stephen king retrospective. That's been going on forever like it's bad it's full of miscalculations. It feels like again something that would happen to king's work not saying that about his actual novels just often when they get adapted to films. They're not good. I just. I don't know because it had that shining vibe with statues coming alive again. The vibe from the novel where the hedge animals come alive and all that like. Yeah bad stephen king. That's not a compliment. The thing that's haunting this film though is the ghost of missing script pages like all the best sure that's there but man how incoherent the story is was. Maybe the biggest shock. I don't know there's so much bad. Cgi it's very shocking to you but just trying to make sense of motivations they do not exist they are. Ghost stuck in purgatory. I don't know if they're good or bad. Yeah stay away from this one. Don't let haunt you with it. Because i'm gonna be haunted by these memories of that fountain reaching out it's handy grab liam niessen pull them that fountain Just so many bad moments. I couldn't believe they actually went forward. Huge miscalculations do not see this. Not recommend stewart yeah. I didn't think it was possible but they finally made a poltergeist movie. I don't like i recommended them. All even that fourth remake woman. Nobody liked or even remembers. I've always enjoyed this knowing that steven spielberg was going to go to the source novel that he drew such inspiration for poltergeist working with stephen king. All of this yeah has less to do with shirley jackson and much more with him returning to the freeling family and trying to get some poltergeist money. A decade later to betty chose demont. Who really doesn't seem to understand what scares anybody and is very much in action mode and swinging his camera. All around these sets like it was a hard movie or something but yeah where was the psychological horror for all of his allegiance to cubic. I dare say there's not a single shot in this that kubrick would've filmed and yeah. You already have the version. That's based on psychological inference. We can watch robert wise nineteen sixty three movie. They needed to go big. I'm not saying that it was the wrong instinct to go for spectacle but if these are your special effects then please don't make the movie this way. The problem is two-fold you don't have any sympathy for anyone in this cast. And everything intended to scare us. Looks incredibly chintzy. And so yeah. It's just a mishmash of bad ideas half written and rewritten things. That i don't think would scare even under thirteen. I in g. rated audience. And i dare say you get a howl. I think that this one will not play to any demographic and which is sad because the inner seventy year old really does like when spielberg goes to horror. It makes you wish that he would stop hiding behind. Janda bond and obi hooper and just go make one for christ's sake just go do it. And don't let other directors be your fall guy but yeah this is a far come down from the nineteen sixty three movie the way that it made no such a tragic figure locked in a dysfunctional marriage with a house. Here she some kind of mother teresa's superhero floating around with ghost. Babies and casper. Lili taylor looks foolish. The entire cast looks foolish. Resist the temptation to buy this house. I know that the set looks cool but inside it is all rot. It is all ruined. It's a strong not recommend jacob. You said that this movie seems leg. Something we'd be watching for the stephen king retrospective and all i could think of is this is making some uv. Abol movies look better see. I haven't watched those. There are depths of hell. I will not go outlaying and those depths but yet i mean while this is better than love rela. This is yes. It is better than bluff route better than most. You've abol films just by its production values. No it really is come on. You're being ridiculous. I legitimately would watch house of the dead before watching this again. Okay but that doesn't mean that house of the dead is a better film. This that just means that it's shorter. No i believe it is better. I- legit believe. It is a better film than this. I mean here's the thing is i i was very willing to go to hyperbole and say this is the worst movie i've ever reviewed for now playing except then i really do think about some of the shit. We've reviewed for now playing. So i'll never be able to say what the worst film ever viewed now is. There's been so many bad ones. Mostly in the arcade but this deserves to be among them. This really does this. Is there with alone in the dark to in my mind that the when you burned yes i mean. When stewart put the haunting on the schedule i was like. I'm not excited by this franchise because i had low expectations of my enjoyment of the first film and we went through their but i remembered this film and coming back to it was like reliving the trauma of a car wreck. I'm surprised that you're having such an intense. I mean such a forgettable movie. I can't imagine like destroyed you. Are you still mad at liam. Niessen know if anybody's mad at liam niece and it should be him for what he's done with his career instead of retire. But i'm going to be completely honest. The worst sin of this film is extreme boredom. This movie is the cure for the insomnia that he is looking for. I don't know any other benefit to this film. It is two hours of complete diz interest. You have actors in here who i enjoy watching on screen. All four of these leads have enchanted me in other performances and here. I don't wanna see any of them. I don't wanna see this movie and yet just so i can level set everything. I didn't think it was that much worse than the movie reviewed last week. Do you think the haunting is one of the worst things we've ever done. One of the most dull interesting. Yes okay and yet it is foundational. I would argue that many haunted house movies including the shining again when we all really love. Take a lot from it again. I can understand not liking it. But i guess just like haunted house movies like i can't imagine hating.

"I mean maybe because i think the house wants to knock her up and i'm trying to figure out this story storyline. She'll look in one of those mirrors. And i think it's practical and it's really badly everything is forget the everything is bad like the way her stomach blows up to show. She's pregnant so my reading is oh the house. This is crane. how he gets. I dunno more children to torture something. He lures women in there and ghost. Impregnates no maybe does that but this is a real ancestral take. That's what's going on as we'll find out. My references always poltergeist. Caralan lili taylor is kind of like a grownup woman. Child caroline would be and so in. That movie in poltergeist. Kellyanne had a whole bunch of ghosts that were after her. That we're friendly and that's kind of like these children here. The ones that like are gravitating all the things that are coming through the sheets and you know all the kid faces that are leaping in her and all of that are just that are attracted to her and are hoping that she does something cool and then the beast is ukraine. Ukraine is the thing that's coming for her and he wanted a child so bad and she is the descendant of his second wife got away pregnant. I think his baby so he either wants her because she is his blood or he does want to impregnate her caroline. I don't know what the beast was going to do. Other than us her to lure ghosts to him but here it does feel rapi certainly when we get the bedroom scene. Where all the spikes coming down and pending her down like she's in san ramey evil dead movie. I do think we're to think sexual assault in. That is the scene. Because i'm watching this. I don't know where it's going to go. It's my first viewing. So i'm like maybe they're gonna try to do though polls psychological thing again but you know now they're just making it more extreme with cgi elements that maybe she's seeing but now when the rest of the group finally gets in that room like they see that. I don't even know what it is. The bed has bolted around her. The whole ceiling really is is turned into crane face. Well yeah there. Is that part too. Which is just cracking up. I feel like i'm going to disney movie. Everything turns into a face. Yeah but no they see like the furniture has moved in unnatural ways. I'm like okay so now. This is really just going to be haunted. House movie like that's where it becomes clear to me that we're supposed to be scared of all the stuff where i wasn't sure at this point because i have not been scared and narrow has taken back again. He didn't come here with the expectation that the ghost of the house would unsettle his patients. He didn't think it was on it. And so this is where he's coming clean and nell is the one insisting no it's haunted and you're starting to see some guilt. He's trying to dissuade her from what she deeply believes is happening. And she's not leaving because she's i don't know homeless and convinced that this is going to be your home. She's got a save the children. I guess because she was a caretaker to her mother. Were to understand that she wants to be a mother to all these little ghosts but again i in in poltergeist we had a very clear delineation that these ghost or there some that are good. Like there's a whole speech when the ghost hunters commander. Some that are good and these are the ones that are you know gathering around like the light you know they see the light of caroll-ann again. It's not as clear here what these ghost hope that lili taylor can do for them other than what ukraine wants to do with her in bed. Yeah i really don't understand what we find out what she does because those doors have always been around to judge. People don't know why she had to be involved to do that. Yeah we're getting into some kind of climax where the house now is literally like a statue is like grabbing niessen and trying to drown film. And luke wilson trying to drive through the gates and the gates are coming down. And did you see the car. He was driving. There is no way it was making it through that gate. He took eleanor's car that was twenty years old. He should've taken miro's car. I think that was funny. Like let me do this with the junker. because no one will care racked. Yeah and it's a grim on. I thought that was a funny little detail but again like is this comedy. I mean you guys are insistent that this is supposed to be straight up horror. But i feel like this is tales from the crypt kind of horror comedy. Here but tony speaking. I can't match that up with some crazy sicko that burn kids in the fireplace and wants to rape a homebody. I think you're just confusing own wilson. Being in the film for comedy like they have an actor. That's known doodoo comedic performances. He is the the comedic one but that does not make this a comedy just because he's doing silly things but again it's all about tone tone is frighteners ish. It's certainly not the shining. The special effects are frighten. Arash what. I see them going for ghostbusters. Yeah i wish it was as good as ghostbusters of the frighteners. Now at any rate rewrite say that you had a second life named caroline or care lan and she was the one that had this kid and suddenly. Eleanor knows that this is her destiny. So she's going to stay in the house. And luke i did remember. He died this his death scene. I didn't remember this. I thought nobody would die in this ad slate. No i remember. I find it was supposed to be niessen and these has a moment. They all have a moment where i thought they were going to die. Well he's in the fireplace trying to pull up the ashburn door and he can't and i'm like oh is he. The one that gets killed. I remember somebody got beheaded in his fireplace. Shouldn't he be the one who died. He's the one who brought them all there under false pretense. Luke did nothing to deserve death. Yeah i feel like there must have been version where they killed miro and for reasons maybe niessen himself said i'm too big a star. Is it the same kathryn jones. Because i thought she was dead to receive lucado like a painting falls slashes. Or i'm like okay. So they're just gonna kill everyone right here at the end. I don't know but then like you know you saw that gargoyles that's attacking it's like again. You don't see ghostbusters in this. You don't feel like this is like goosebumps kind of level horror this. They're not obviously going for adults elevated horror for a you know sophisticated minds. I don't know do they think this looks cool like maybe they think these griffin statues coming alive. A really good effect. I i have to know again. It's pg thirteen. So maybe they tame some stuff down but it feels like the tone is again. Except for owen. Wilson is more or less pretty serious. Like i'm never chuckling when liam neeson's walking around on screen the few times these on here like i don't feel that there's that edge of camp to it. I think we're supposed to take the seriously. Let me be clear. I'm not saying that there are jokes here. I'm not saying it's eddie murphy's on a mansion i'm just saying it's the kind of lighthearted take on horror that was quite frankly very popular in the eighties. I feel like this is what. Pg thirteen horror was in the era of ghostbusters monster squad. I don't know. I look at ghostbusters. That opening library seen scare the hell out of me as a kid like nothing in here. I don't think anything scary for kids in this one. No they failed. Yeah yeah and again because of the time had they gone for opticals and practical. 's maybe this could have been spooky to the single digits. But i know nobody wants to talk about this disaster of film. In retrospect but i really do wonder if there was ever an plan for an r rated version because when luke loses his head but cutting around that is so bad now either may be spielberg thought. He was still in the era where he could get away with all of the gore of poltergeist and call it. Pg or maybe they thought maybe we'd make there's a rated r..

"At that point there was rushmore and there is bottlerocket but i feel like he deserves more than this. There's no woes in. They don't get any of those classic. Owen wilson moments he says. Wow at least twice. I didn't have to have subtitles turned on for this. okay. I was listening for it but i missed. It was almost like this was a mumble core movie to me the effects very loud but everybody was really talking low and what i had the subtitles on. I wouldn't even know people were speaking. And i'd see words on the bottom. That did happen to me a few times. I'm like i saw words. And i didn't hear him though. And i had to rewind but at one point he says wow like twice in a row in the subtitles there. Go and wilson. Wow i missed it. Ease the fun presence. I feel like you can have some comic relief. It should be him. It shouldn't be catherine zeta-jones who by the way hasn't been that far into her career. Either i think she had entrapment and did a titanic. Tv movie zoro. Zoro's her thing. Yeah oh okay. I've never seen one of those. But all right. Don't really mean. Her big breakout was mask of zorro. The year before. Yeah she was a rising star and very soon would become michael douglas's baby maker but at this point they're catching her on. The cusp of people would know who she is but she wouldn't necessarily pack the theaters. But what is again this house like trying to understand or you get the scene with nell and theo. Like running through it. And there's like the spitting miraeg around music carousel room with mir's and then some like room that's flooded with like books you jump on to get across the water like it's very jarring because i'm like okay. We're going for that old style. Winchester thing but then we have like the carnival rooms. I love the house. But i don't understand how anything got designed serves the purpose of the ghost that we're going counter like what is in the fireplace. Where do those books steps go to. Why disputing around in that room. Do anything is that the heart of the house. Nothing that i associate with hill house serves what they spent all of that money and time building though sets to do. I don't get it it. There's no dialogue about like all the angles being off the doors off center like that keeps them character to the house. This one if feels like a bunch of artificial character to me. If it's like someone that hey look at me. i'm tough. I got some tribal tattoos like real generic looking. That's how this house feels like. It wants to be tough. But i'm not buying it allegri. The outside of this house is amazing. That castle yes the fact that i could tell that was real again in this movie where they're going to use such bad effects too bad effect to see that and realize that. That is a really. They're building gorgeous. The inside first of all everything's kind of brown and monotone gives almost a sepia feel to the movie but beyond that the design feels more like a discarded timber. Ninety tim burton would have taken this at everything would have had a maniacal purpose that was in some way related to the psyche. It's like somebody came across an unused timber and set was like yeah. We're going to just use this. Who cares what it means. Yeah here's what i actually suggest. Knowing what i know about the production there probably were pivotal scenes. That happened in that spinning room. There are probably were major. Revelations about stepping on that book opened up a secret passage. Or what have you it got cut. There was so much about what they first shot that got reshot and tested and then reshot and they were filming this movie up until a few weeks before it came out in july of nineteen ninety nine. They were constantly changing. Everything i got know. Is there any behind the scenes stuff because the funniest thing to me is there's a couple more characters. We've mentioned that they come to this house. Todd and mary assisted dr moreau and like mary is playing a piano in string breaks and like hits. Her in the eye cuts her face. So todd's gotta russia to the hospital. Dr mara. call me when you get there like we never get that cau- these two actors never come back like they are totally gone from this film. It's so i'm just waiting for them. The whole time to come back at some point and they never do god. I fought the. I was gone and i was like no. Please don't show me. That just is always going to be grabber. We needed something to happen. Does movie has the mentality. We're not gonna do it in shadows. This will not be about whispering voice over and zooming in on walls. And what have you. We're going to show you shit and so it's an a i kill. That's the way i would treat it. She doesn't die but it's gets the body count going. Let you know that this house is out for blood and yeah you would think that they would have some purpose. I guess what it tells you. Is that dr marrow's now have to do this. All on his own and if we understood more about his experiment. I mean there's only three people. How hard can it be. i agree with you. it feels like he's got a of xerox's to hand out by and large. I don't see anything else going on. Like he tells everyone the history of the house a little bit different and then tells luke side about how ukraine's first wife actually killed herself and tries to see how that planting that seed might again. I'm not this is not an experiment on gossip or communication. But i guess he's saying that the suggest ability of that is going to in fact all the players. It's really a horrible scientific study. It's a horrible plot device and the fact that marrow loses both of his. Ta's with this one accident and he's left there alone and yeah he hands out some papers but if this is going to be a reason for being there and he's going to skirt ethics to do it. I needed to see almost a mad doctor kind of thing i needed to see. Oh i wanted to see him. Keeping their beyond the point of danger the way we saw with that first movie as it is we asked. Why catherine zeta-jones here why is oscar winner. Liam niessen here well because he's a friend of spielberg. Because you know it was a good part in the original..

"Really have cell service let alone an actual phone line for those ghosts to use their ghost. They don't need a real phone. Line lay agreed. You think casper has a cell phone plan. now. I can talk about something that i actually like. I don't like this beginning. I don't really like this now. But i actually like the tack that they're gonna take here that the scientist isn't gathering people to explore the psychic phenomenon of the house. He's not trying to prove whether he'll house is haunted or not. Liam neeson's david mero is instead trying to rid modern man of primal fear instincts. And i'm not exactly sure how studying insomniacs is going to do that. But i do like the idea that he has something very else. Intended in his experiments than seeing these people be attacked by spirits. I'm gonna agree with his boss or whoever that is though. This is unethical. As how like in any modern study you have to tell the people there in a study which yes skews it but like you cannot do this. This is highly unethical. You have to tell them. They're in a study. But i don't think you have to tell them what they're in a study about. I think he is right. You don't tell them. Ice there in a maze. I studied this a little bit recently. And i do believe yes. You don't have to tell the purpose of an experiment to someone if you think that that's going to create a bias or influence the outcome. But if you're going to harm people. That committee would allow this process to go forward. This man is the head of the department. He is saying this is unethical. He should just be tellingly niessen. You're not doing this. It's worth pointing out behind them as they're having this discussion. There are all kinds of photographs and things among them is the stanford prison experiment of very famous. And highly unethical. It's really the reason why we now have these. Laws about what. Kinds of experiments psychologists can conduct because stanford thought. It would be really brilliant to turn students into prisoners and guards and it. It was very brutal and humanizing in like you pointed out stewart. These picking all insomniacs like a bad sample like again. I don't understand the science of this. But i thought the setup was gonna be like he was gonna make up stuff about this house and have little booby-traps to pop things out and make them think it was on it. I really thought that was the direction. Once this revelation comes this is all a psychological experiment. I think what he's saying is that they're suggestive. I don't have to be william castle and rigs skeletons on wires and put the tingler down on the chairs and all of that because these people will do it to themselves. I think the point is. How much does the fear response proved. I wish there was a little bit more about this. Because i actually think it's an interesting hook for the story and unfortunately we get to scenes and it will hands out a couple of flyers and mazes but i don't think that there's ever really any consideration as to what mirrow hopes to get out of this. No how did he know who was suggesting. How did he know raleigh's people seeing the same therapy group and he had access to their files they interviewed. I mean you do have his research assistance. It should be said there are new characters here this girl. Mary has talked to all the applicants. There's another scene where you see. These people interviewed on banks. Tv's so like they've they've gone through a thorough research and and made sure that not only are these people all insomniacs but they fit the criteria of whatever. This experiment is looking to do. But did eleanor interview. I thought she got phone call but did she then go to the interview. Yeah the phone call was from a ghost that said hey you should look up near personal section the classifieds and your newspaper and call that study apply right because she is so mousy because she has been under the thumb her family. For so long the presumption is. That's exactly what i was looking for. I agree they missed several steps and you could feel in the choppiness of the editing. We don't get a clean layout or what happens here. Somebody came in and said too much exposition. We came here for the thrills. And they just reduced all of this setup to some half pacey understandable gobbledygook. And that's too bad. Because i feel like a good setup would probably get me in the mood for this much. Better than seeing the repeats of nell driving to the gates and the scary groundskeeper. Bruce dern gets a lot scarier. Here's the problem for me though is because we get this setup that this is all just going to be an experiment and so my expectation again. I thought the way this play out there. Be some spooky things and then something would happen in liam needs to be like I didn't plan that i didn't do that. One that's mysterious. So i felt like the dudley's oh these are just actresses hired. I thought he's tried to sit up. This real spooky environment. Maybe they don't even know anything about this house or that. It has a history of onnaing. But i guess it does like the dudley's are still the same dudley's from that i fill might they don't stay there at night. No-one in the town comes close to that house. But it's throwing me off. Because i'm like. Oh no these are actors that miro hired. I thought the exact same thing. Because mrs dudley has her monologue and she gives us monologue to eleanor and then when she tries to give it again to theo. Eleanor is stepping on her lines. And miss dudley. Looks like a pissed off actress. Who's like these are my lies. She's gonna get the last word in. I'm like these are obvious. Plants know if they were plants. The movie has cut out the scene. Telling that yeah. They've cut them almost completely out of this movie. I could get rid of the dudley's but they need someone to open the big gates and bring us into this well half of it's incredible set and then half of it is an actual exterior castle that you can find and upper west england and i do enjoy some of these interiors at the created. I don't know if you guys have ever been to hearst castle and central california. I been on all the tours. Their loved that place and the winchester house. Yeah that's the one they're going for. Yeah definitely like building rooms crazy person. Just adding rooms that house. That is the winchester story. Right yeah just in case. People don't know it's in san jose and it is the actual like winchester gun the gun people. Yeah those people because those guns killed so many indians though woman that was sort of the inheritor of of the matron of that family in building. Her house was afraid. Those indian ghosts were going to come and get her so she kind of went crazy and just building on room after room hoping that that would distract them from home invasion. I don't know she had this. Believe a superstition that if construction ever stopped on the house she would die and so she just kept building and building staircases to know where bent to the house. It is something to see the walk. You through the whole thing. It takes like an hour to walk through the house doubt yet and there was a movie made about that a few years ago..

"1999" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast

"If he wants to go in that direction even with john. I was kind of excited for this movie. I do remember a lot of hype being pushed on the fact well spielberg was trying to build his own house dreamworks. He had just announced that he was running a movie studio at this point. And so he was looking for properties that would fatten. You know they're filmography and give him a big hit so i think that he had done well producing haunted house movie in the eighties. He wanted to see that done again here in the nineteen nineties and i remember a lot of good press about the set. All that i remember about the hype of this movie is boy. You won't believe it when you get to see the inside of this house. Oh i don't believe it. We get to that. Merry go round room. You're right oscar. Eugene owes a nettie was hired. He had just one for restoration had also done. I mean it's not a great film but you definitely remember the gothic neon hospital in the original flatliners. That was all him. The living paintings and what dreams may come stupid movie had a cool look to it again. They got some really good technicians. That would lead you to believe that this was going to be a very decadent elaborate haunted house larger in scale than any seen before maybe on paper but i remember the trailers for this piece of shit i remembered thinking this looked awful from the get go and i liked speed and i liked twister and i knew yon demont was behind this one. I never knew about the stephen king connection being dreamworks. I knew about the steven spielberg connection. But this thing from the trailers and i had a problem with this movie everyone should. Yeah who doesn't particularly with its star liam niessen liam was going all around any interview. Anybody who would talk to him on the street and go. I'm retired. i'm done acting. Why star wars all that blue screen. Cgi it's not acting anymore. I like acting and i'm done. Nestor of this was the same summer as phantom menace. Just three months later less than three months actually and fan menace actually filmed before this george. Lucas has very long post production periods where he brings people back and refills so after shooting phantom menace and not liking the blue screen he goes and makes the haunting. He's complaining about george lucas's use of cgi really and he never once mentioned this piece of shit cgi when complaining about his retirement. Are you saying that. And coming to life thrown into retirement. I mean that's horrifyingly real looking. What are you talking about. I've saying. Lucas may have overused. Cgi but at least it looked good. This movie looked like shit. I just mocked it when it came out in july. I didn't see it until video. And i only saw it just so i could have a little bit of shot in for out about holier than thou niessen and his hatred of cgi. I didn't expect it to be good. I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it was though. Jeez christ we just do it recommends right now. Is that what. We're doing now explaining to me. Because i previously you described the haunting nineteen ninety. Nine is the worst movie you ever saw. Which admittedly no one's going to say it's great but i'm like there are so many in the running for that. How did this even compare. You're offended you're offended by what the star had said that seemed to slight star wars. And so you came with that chip on your shoulder. Yes but coming back. I had a chip by shoulder that was put there by this movie in nineteen ninety nine. Worst movie i've ever seen. We'll get to that in our review. I guess now. I mean years the interesting thing. It was a modest hit. It made a one hundred million dollars. That's not a flop but because it costs so much because it was an eighty million dollar production and you gotta do advertisements. And what have you then. Because it was so chaotic. I mean the cinematographer walked after the first week and there was infighting and rewriting. And i mean you can see from this movie the way that it doesn't even come together. There were so many ideas and cooks in the kitchen. Spielberg in yonder bond. Don't speak to each other after this is done and basically janda bonds career is over after this is done. He did do the laura croft sequel but he has not made a movie sense. I do think that spielberg when he declares you over. Watch out michael bay. There's no future for you. Megan fox and razzies to should be said that everyone piled on. It did get five. Nominations no wins. It was the year of will. Smith's while wild west and apparently that was worse at least according to razzie committee. I haven't seen that but it can't be this bad. I actually don't remember it being that bad but maybe one day we'll covered this but let's get into it then arnie if you're not afraid give him the plot and we'll find out about haunting one thousand nine hundred nine liam neeson's david mirror a doctor performing a study on human responses to fear. He skirts ethics by pretending to hold it. Insomnia study at the spooky mansion called il house. His subjects are luke played by owen. Wilson not be confused by owen. Played by luke wilson i now he confused me. Fashion easter theo played by catherine zeta-jones and mousy eleanor played by lily. Taylor the first night mero tells us subjects the history of the house. It was built over one hundred years earlier. By textile tycoon hugh crain. He hoped he and his wife would raise children there. But after several miscarriages and no successful births crain's wife killed herself. Crane lived the rest of his life in the house that night. The guests here loud banging in the house. Eleanor begins to see ghosts of children. And the words welcome home. Eleanor appear on wall written in blood through investigation of the house. Eleanor finds out crane. Used child labor in his mills also. After his wife's death crane brought dozens of orphans into the house. He torture them and kill them so he could have an eternal family. Those children's spirits are now trapped in the house. As is the malevolent ghost of crane himself. Eleanor also finds out crane remarried. His wife became pregnant..

"Going in there right so we see a teenage boy walk into his bedroom. He tells cole to come on that he can show him where his dad keeps gun mckay and then he turns around in the back of his head is blown off. It's it's bloody and gutty. Yeah it's like nothing. It's bloody kay. He goes back see small and as she is trying to coax the dog from behind hidden behind like cleaning supplies. Creepy teak goes would have his head blown off. I wonder if the dog can see it. I don't know what he definitely can feel it. Oh i'm sure he can. It's just the dead ghost went on whatever it was. He didn't like no he did and he was hiding old puppies. Acute co asks if she isn't really mad if he can sleep with her that night and then she's like look at my face when i ever be mad at you were. You couldn't sleep in my bed with nabil's are crying and hugging huge to the waterworks. This i started crying here So now we're with anna and she is working and she's doing her thing selling like this engagement ring to this couple and and he stirs something. Yeah yeah just doing a good job. She has hustling because whoever she signed his ring to like. It's got to be an expensive ring. Because the girl is in love with anna the fiancee's like yeah but do easing pointer and then she just starts ambit like. Don't you try it on. Yeah tried on. I always feel like that people who had these pieces of jeweler. Anything that people had in the past of like fingerprint donham. And i'm like that would not be a good idea for me like i don't want somebody dead. Do they've left a little imprint on and that they just like hang out with. I don't want be good. Or bad. Mojo i mean no. That's a lot of responsibility my own weird vibes on my jewelry. Thank you very much a pretty good job. I think i think you've got you've nailed it. You've nailed it. Somebody else's weird. Like i don't know i agree. It just seems weird. It is either way. She sold this stupid expensive in tinkering. Did he sucker such did so. After this transaction happens one of anna's employees brings up a new chair. I guess that they're selling in the store. And then she ends up giving him a birthday gift. It was the guy who was asked to go the flea market correct. Yes and she gives him a first edition to some sort of book He's excited about it. They embrace yup. They're about to kim uh-huh here a crash so they both jump up. She runs like to the front of the store in the front door. Glass door has been shattered. Yep so while this is happening we hear a voice over of coal asking malcolm what he wants more than anything and he says he wants to talk to his wife again the way that they used to talk to each other and then coal asks him highs planning on doing that and malcolm says he just can't be as dr anymore because it's taking too much time away from his family and he needs to focus on anna basically. So cole says don't fail me. Don't give up on me and he's the only one that can help them good. He's going to come out in the. I know it. no news. Crying is so sad and that both of them are crying. And bruce willis is refusing to look at him because he's like trying to hold back his tears. Yes and like while hayley lawson's like crying. He's like begging him to much. It is too much. No so back at malcolm's house he's in his office starts remembering the night that vincent broke into his house and shot him. He finds a box labeled vincent gray. And i'm thinking to myself. Does he keep this filing box for every single person that he like meets with isis. The ad is that why he needs a whole basement as he has to like hoardings instead. I mean this. This box from vincent was stuck in a corner. Like you're gonna get said it was from like eighty seven or something like that so it had been like over a decade that he had this box of this kid stuff. It's weird yeah right. I don't know. But i guess it depends on what the case was and how long he met with them. I could see depending on the patient. We didn't storage happens to it yet. Because you have a basement. It could flood gates. I would put it someplace safe for. Just feel like the whole it being so accessible. Yeah yeah you're just sticking to my basement. Oh there it is right there. And he just like gravity's whole personal light he met with Like eighty four to eighty or something like that but either way it was a couple years in the eighties and you know that he has not touched any of those filed since eighty seven. So he's like oh there it is on a lot of it and he grabbed one of the like the tapes used to record when they're sessions and he puts it in His i don't know what it is the outta was tape recorder whatever. He's like listening to it but like player cassette player neighbors. So he's listening to it and it starts off. With like bruce willis say like. Oh it's cold in here. And then he has to excuse himself for a few minutes because he gets it got important phone call so he keeps reminding playing rewinding and playing the same part of turn the volume of. Yeah yeah so then eventually. Like the silent. Part of when bruce was on the phone call and vincent to combating he like ruins it cranks violent almost eleven. Yeah ranks it all the way up and he hears this man who was not vincent speaking in spanish and i'm like oh avoid the question is he just now reviewing this tape like why. Why now the only thing that. I think that he was looking for something that he wasn't ten years ago because if coal telling him that like he said people all the time here's what they talked him whatever and he's diagnosing coal at the same thing. He was diagnosing. Vincent with maybe. He's trying to look for similarities. Maybe that's the only thing i can think of. Maybe he was just like looking for more because when he was play the regular live. You didn't hear anything though like cranks up to like five or six here something And then he liked cranked up to eleven he was like. Oh okay. so speaking in spanish Which is fucking creepy right. Okay okay so malcolm ends up going to the church. We're he met kohl for the first time cole seemed to be expecting him when he shows up in col- asked us something happened to him. And if he's wigging out you forget he asked cole what he thinks he's gonna want when they talk to him and he said just help. Yeah and then malcolm said that. He thinks that he knows how to get them. Go away he needs to just listen to them and help them subway. They don't want they just want to hurt. But i don't think that's the way it works for sure home. Okay that's a that's a big pill to swallow. Yeah so that nine year old kid. Listen to these creepy. I said people it's fine lookin' happened which we find out that he'd like gets on this bus at nine years old by himself in anyways. But we're gonna get here. Yeah yeah so that night. Malcolm is walking towards his house. And sean which is. The employees of ana had no idea what his name was. Good job. yeah. That's probably the only place that i have it. Because i didn't realize i wrote his name. His name is sean so he comes out of the house. He gets in his car and he drives away. So malcolm sees this entire thing tried to get him to stop but he doesn't stop blows right now right so we see that so at cole's house his mother's having this nightmare so it's like in the middle of the night now. Coal crawls out of tent to go be with her in like homes or down rubs her head and whatever so back in his tent house gets cold again he quickly gets in this tent any puts.

"The threat needed to be eliminated. 007 has the license to cal. She's there for emotional impact but her role is supposed to be the leader in many ways of the unit and so again. Judy dench great. But i sort of question the depiction of 'em in the in the mistakes in the emotions and how that is presented as part of her character. But that's rarely brought into question when it comes to men if and when they occupy those roles yes. That's a great point. And i mean i can kind of understand why it didn't happen in the older ones. Because amb was barely he didn't really do much in those movies where they really did boost the judi dench character. But you are right. It's very problematic. As do wendy's sort of story threads introduced and they have not really happened with a rape fines. That is definitely great. Point camp and i just wanted to touch on. Actually the score. I think david. Arnold is such a great composer for these and i wish we were still getting david. Arnold scores for bond films honestly. Yes i'm the one thing i noticed. Though that felt very nineteen ninety nine was there is like record scratching going on in the score at the boat. Chase the start of this movie. And i was cracking up. It was very new metal as in like someone on mixing deck during the old lincoln thing. Yeah i couldn't tell if it was actual record scratching or if it was like digital record scratching that they'd created but it had a definite sound to it that i was going. Oh boy it's like the days of limp biscuit. You're as long as a role in doesn't make it onto a james bond soundtrack. I'm happy the no. I was actually gonna mentioned scores I'm glad you mentioned that. I the only two notes. I had Review fans of the tv comedy. Show the it crowd. I've seen it. I haven't seen okay. I'll just. I'll just say what i saw when when christmas joins is trying to defuse the bomb in the oil pipeline. She's got a little tablet handheld device. And it's run by windows ce mexico point to do that so they get the plug in for windows and i i just think about the scene in. It crowd where there's a bomb defusing robot and the guy from the tv show goes Was the operating system and guy goes Windows ninety five and then the all character around the guys. We're all going to die. Just took me back to that. That's a very weird reference for about five people out there. So enjoy that and the other thing i had down was the the one million hand game in the casino was probably the worst movie i've ever seen since when mian cam tried to play blackjack in vegas good call good call. We didn't lose that big but we still lost. Yeah we we lost I might say that for diamonds forever upside down the line.

"Like i i pick up a piece of paper and get like a like a paper cut right and so lake just seeing in the past. There's never really been that much blood or any sort of like a trauma to him in this film have the shoulder injury Die another day. Be somebody who has to come back And i think that that really sets up the trajectory that daniel craig era goes in with bonds body being beaten. Abruzzo is coming back. So i think there's value in these last two rosin era films for what they set up an innocence the ground that they're walking the ground that they're paving or the baby steps they're taking towards the next phase they really are precursors or transitionary films. I think pierce brosnan was the guy who kind of had to die on the hill so that we could get to the daniel craig era because so much of pierce brosnan's complaints during that whole period was that we need to make bond more of a character needs to be delving into his weaknesses. Vulnerabilities insecurities all that sort of thing. And i'm sure there was a fair amount of blowback. I don't think eon was particularly interested in that fully in this era but you can see that. He pushed the kind of the block along and so we finally did. Get the reinvention with daniel craig. We actually got that fully realized. I appreciate Brosnan for having sort of the vision of wanting to do that in the first place. Well before we get onto things that we be to improve is only highlights fee to. I'll just say there some great visuals in this movie. We've said the action sequences aren't necessarily spectacular a lot of the time at least in terms of sucking you into what's going on screen but there are. Some great visuals have always remembered that moment where bond confronts renard in like the bomb facility and the glasses there and he shoots the bullet right between the the is there and that image has always stuck with me. I think michael apted. He may not be a great action director. but i think he knows how to create some visuals. That are very memorable. And i mean the renard scene at the end with dying impaled with the missile pointing in the air. That seems i think intentionally very symbolic for that character. Can we also talk about the sex chair. The torch regionalise the antique that they dug up as a relic of the old days of sex chair torture. Because i know the bat is very popular among bond fans but post. A picture of that and people are like loving it on instagram. They're like yes this one. But i i kinda like the mode of torture. This idea. that bond doesn't have but there's lack of consent in there But like this idea like he is being charged. Not just intimately but also physically. Yeah it's a. It's an interesting device. That in the way that it's all and i'm questioning if i should like based on the lack of consent involved in radiator which as i thought i did but it's a very interesting torture device and again going with the intimacy right this idea that you can't help but fall in love with me you can't help but be attracted to your body's out of your control me me. It fits in with that but yeah the lack of consent. It also finalized the shift in the dominance submission relationship..

"What twelve year. old me. Just wasn't that big of a fan. I can see that. I remember driving out the cop up. I wasn't driving. Obviously but i just just feeling confused bio it's weird beast for sure and that. It definitely felt different than the boston's who came before. But i remember tracking the progress of the swan in sin escape magazine. Which was my go-to back. Then and there was so much talk from brosnan being like. I really want this to be character driven important to me. I wanna make my stamp on this character. And so i think when i did see the movie i was more looking for that If i had not gone into any of that sort of background. I think i would have been really a lot more thrown than i even was. Yeah it definitely is a funny beast coming off the last two films but speaking of camp. How did we get here well. The journey sorta began in nineteen ninety seven when barbara broccoli was on a flight shortly after the release of tomorrow never dies and she watched a special in the flight. Entertainment a nightline episode. That was talking about major oil companies. And how they're going after untapped reserves in the caspian sea post the followed the ussr and she kind of came up with that basic idea of like well. Whatever was causing issues and wanted to develop further so development exact. Simon matthew who works with the broccolis brought in neo per neal purvis and robert wade. Who we're going to talk about pretty much endlessly in any from from ninety nine onwards They had really only a couple credits. Let him habit which was a small crime film from nineteen ninety-one and plunkett and maclaine which co stars robert carlyle and it was set for release the same year as this movie ultimately was released. And so basically knowns but they were brought in and was their idea to make alexa villain they were really fascinated by bonds relationship with women and how they affected him. And i think the initial pitch i believe was bond thinks he's found his tracy but instead it's blow feld which is actually a really good hook. I gotta say on that level..

The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'

"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect

"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it

Episode 67: the Million Mom March-- Continuing it's Legacy 20 Years Later

"So Donna I want to start with you. Can you talk to our listeners? I know you're going to have to be brief about it. But tell our listeners what prompted you to begin the million mom, March, what was the million mom, March you off and can you take us through your journey? Sure. Well, it was August 10th 1999 typical vacation day on Fire Island. I was with my daughters who were four and five years old that summer they had also gone to a JCC day camp in New Jersey and never what I dreamed that suddenly I would be frightened that they would be targets off from a white supremacist on that day a white supremacist storm to JCC Day Camp, Granada Hills, California. He opened fired on Little Campers and fortunately none of the kids dog. But they suffered great injuries, including a sixteen-year-old day camp counselor and my world changed at that moment at the time. I was a part-time publicist for Late Show with David Letterman. I felt like, you know, I have time to do something serious like volunteer to do PR for gun violence prevention organization. And and really the only one I knew of and usually get through to was was called handgun control Inc then but for purpose of this podcast, I'm calling it by its since rebranded name since 2001 the Brady organization, so I called Grady but I filled a volunteers and it was very hard to volunteer at that particular moment because Congress had just a few weeks before failed to close the gun-show loophole that was exposed when Columbine happened. That's how those Shooters got their guns through a loophole. And so there was a lot of discouragement in the basic. I was told but we still tell people who call your cock. Spend and I was embarrassed that I hadn't actually called my congressman at all since becoming a mother and you know, I knew the number by heart because I had worked on Capitol Hill for years right out of college. So I know the importance of making your voice heard and I even understood the importance when like five women would sit out in our reception area five women used to terrify my boss US senator Russell long. He thought five women sitting out and reception area meant five thousand women were right behind them. So I am going to tell you a secret JK I I wrote a book so I had more detail about how the whole minimum March came together and it's a great book. Thank you, but I left out as a little secret and I know I've told a lot of people that you're not the first person I'm talking but I think it's frozen on a broadcast. My goal was never to really get a million moms. My goal was to get five moms in every congressional district in this country but to Orange Is the 2175 person March just in the sounded interesting so because I'm a pure person million mom, March a little more Pizzazz, but I thought okay million. Mom March million is a thousand million as a metaphor, you know for a lot of people and so we launched it on Labor Day when I say we I get all my friends who I'd worked with. I worked at CBS news for several years. I worked in different, you know different places that immediate mavens and they helped me put together, you know logos slogans a press release and we launched on Labor Day. I was actually shocked on how newsworthy they they considered a million mom March and Mother's Day. It was nine months from the day. I applied to the permit on August seventeenth two Mother's Day that made fourteen. We were the headlines wrote them, you know takes nine months to make a baby nine months to make March, you know, maybe you know, we get congressmen to pass laws to protect those

Federal prisoner Brandon Bernard executed despite pleas from celebrities, jurors

"Administration carried out its ninth federal execution of the year. Last night. Last minute clemency pleas for Brandon Bernard were rejected celebrities and a former U. S prosecutor had taken up his cause. George Hale from member station. W F I U has more fans flooded Donald Trump's Twitter account for a week after Kim Kardashian West asked for help trying to save Bernard's life. But late Thursday it was the mother of a murdered youth minister of plotting the president's decision to let the execution go forward. The family have Todd Bagley would like to thank President Donald J. Trump. Attorney General William H. Bar and the Department of Justice. Todd and his wife, Stacy, were visiting Texas in 1999 when a group of young men kidnapped them, hoping to empty their bank accounts. Hours later, the couple was locked in the trunk of their car when the gang's ringleader fatally shot them. Both. Bernard was a low ranking member of the gang and followed orders to set the car on fire. Federal officials executed shooter, Christopher V. Alva in September. They also moved to set an execution date for Bernard. Supporters of Bernard insist he had no idea the all the planned to shoot anyone. He was also only 18 at the time. That wasn't part of the original kidnapping. But prosecutors managed to convince a mostly white jury to send us both young black men to death. The majority of surviving jurors later changed their minds about Bernard. So did Angela Moore, a former U. S prosecutor who helped defeat Bernard's appeal. Mr Bernard was not planning on any kidnapping or killing to happen. Mr Real of Awas More wrote in an op ed in the Indianapolis star detailing her objections to Bernard's execution. That's when Kim Kardashian West got involved tweeting the essay to her nearly 70 million followers. Trump listens to West before he once hosted her in the White House alongside prisoners he had granted clemency. The Stars Support offered rare hope to an inmate scheduled to die under a Supreme Court stacked with death penalty supporters. Hours before the execution, Bernard's defense, added attorneys and Trump backers Ken Starr and Alan Dershowitz to the team. They sought a 14 day stay to review the case. But any hope of Trump intervening, faded late Thursday. As prison officials gathered witnesses and the execution went forward Kardashian West took to Twitter soon after our system is so eft up, she said. The next federal execution is set for tonight.

You know he's in ah every part of creation that I do just because when I look at the album credits and look at Prince's work it's like prince fan drums. France is doing the arrangement prince plan the guitar but he does all of it and he's sharing his vision with all of us and so when I making music. I don't know that I can do the same thing. Because he's done it. I can sit here and play on his insurance and make my vision come to life and just being uncompromising about what what I wanna hear and why I want to hear it. Another artist who has clearly been inspired by prince is the actor. Comedian and musician. Fred armistead who starred in the recurring Prince show sketch on Saturday. Night live alongside fellow. superfan Maya Rudolph Fred. I fell in love with prince through the video for nineteen ninety nine after coming up in the PUNK scene. I was starring in like more was cool. This is poke nothing will ever change. This is the ultimate in court and and then when I saw this nineteen ninety nine video on TV and didn't really my idea. Apply data of what hole is is because I just remember. It was so vivid although sake read her fall under some pink. And that's Oh sort of all those and that song and like everything about it. Just really sue back at me. I thought it was cool. I don't think any of my friends really need is let goods so it was just Buying album after album. And of course coming uh-huh parade tour. I saw him on that one and missed the purple core. Coons really becaming my favorite artist. I really just. I soaked up a lyric every little real drums. Me Everything about him sign of the Times. I mean one of my favorite albums of all time to this day water now besides the Times. It really affected me sexy really affected and then going into the nineties. I just spying page six also greenhealth l.. Where wherever you WANNA go I will go with you? I just loved him. I of you know all the way through on the still a now. Wow now that like I get to do stuff on TV. I even only all his moods even more that it's such a spot thing to do to Um understand so much. As Prince's popularity grew he also began to claim his status as a revered once in a generation artists one who was just as respected by the musicians who inspired him as the ones he would go on to inspire in his own career. The Rock and Roll Hall all of Famer Nile Rodgers who broke through many barriers of his own with his. R&B Pop group Chic. and WHO's produced hits for David Bowie Madonna and Daft punk recalls first admiring princess work in the nineteen ninety nine era. I mean it's one of those records of like you know the Beatles white album Michael Jackson thriller. It's one of those kind of records Where you know? There's the world before nineteen ninety nine in this world after nineteen ninety nine. At least that's the way I see it. Because he I mean he became such a superstar after that it was almost most It was almost that you couldn't believe it was almost meteoric rise and prince's made such an impression on the world that was one of those magical forces that was undeniable. I can think of so many of my great friends who are like big superstars bat. Just mentioned mentioned of prince would like sort of like drive them into a frenzy because he was so damn good and God knows my friendships with Prince. It was just it was pretty pretty legendary wonderful. Our level of respect for each other was so enormously high why we would discuss music and philosophy on a sort of very high plain if you will because he was a very spiritual ritual person in a very scientific person so I wouldn't say at odds but everything was always interesting to us like my point of view is interesting to him and his point of view was super interesting to himself. He couldn't wait to tell it to me and we had amazing conversation the station we would talk for hours and hours and hours as much as I loved. His music You can I mean just think of the special moments that he's given me in my life in a not only did he come out on stage with us at the essence festival. Not only am I the only person that I believe. He's ever interviewed for magazine though when we released our last chic album. On Warner Brothers. That was a total flop. The only promotion we got was prince doing The Song Dan BOP BOP. Ah You sexy mother and if you look at that video check that video out. He's holding our chic. CD In so many ways. Nine hundred ninety nine set the stage for all that was about to come for Prince his first feature length film his first number one hits his first grammys. Only a few months would pass between in the final date of the nineteen ninety nine tour and that fateful night in August of nineteen eighty three when prince and his band which he'd formerly cemented as the revolution him would record their new son Purple Rain at their hometown club. First Avenue and make rock history. He became a leader in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine you went from a caterpillar to a butterfly net. One Purple Trench coat that we talk about any became the international superstar that was Zabell to convince brothers pictures and a bunch of people that he was. He was a bankable star a real personality and the the economy look of the photos the album cover the tidbit puzzle of the revolution backwards. It's all there. It's all a setup for what's to come and it's a really Honored to be a part of that. That thing is just. It's a monster so.

"In making nine thousand nine hundred nine prince had been explicit about his desire to reach a broader audience. Does dickerson remembers having many conversations with Prince about this. Do you think it's fair to say his trying to reach a wider audience than he had previously open secret and it wasn't wasn't wasn't about you know neglecting or devaluing our existing fan base. It was about never wanting to be limited it was about never wanting to you'd be marginalized and that's really if you look at the population as a whole well. Our Fan base should look like the population as a whole not a small portion of it so I mean that literally was was. It's like they have a pitch count. Sometimes in in baseball we had the white people count x number of minutes before Showtime Road Manager. One of the managers would come in there with us on that show. Hey audiences about seventy five percent white and then that number kept going up you know we got the place where it was like. The audience is over ninety percent white so again it was just one of those things where we didn't want to be marginalized. We wanted our audience to look like you know the Western world. We should just just have music stations. Not Black Music stations. You know. That's it's still problem and it'll always I mean maybe it won't always be but the this little bit of that no matter where you go. Oh all the time and you know. I'm proud that that we broke some rules and change some things in our heartily days you know oh boy. That was an exciting time because we at that point I've been in the group since the late. Seventy eight eight and here we are. It's eighty two so four years of really balls to the walls hard work rehearsing and during and doing all that stuff and it was all beginning to pay off which was great. Because that's that's our goal to make ourselves as popular popular as possible and please and entertain people so yeah exciting. He had really come into his own as an entertainer retainer and really learned the ropes by then and confidence was there and his show prowess was amazing. You know he he could just control the audience silence so well and give them what they wanted. And of course I just remember that the women in the audience went crazy for him. Lots of screaming apoe like the Beatles. This looks father. Vaz.

"Prince dislike. He could make the band. Okay now. Play Dead Okay Rollover okay so it was one of those kind of songs where do like crazy like corn punch gags like we were like circus dogs and he will make us too blue jump through the hoop okay go. Prince wasn't just thinking about perfecting his own set he was also closely monitoring the opening sets by his two proteges. The time actually played during both of those opening sets as Drummer Jelly. Bean Johnson told me I was doing double duty because the time was managed six band and concert so that was a chipper I to we'd be behind a curtain. Nobody knew it was I tell you a funny thing about that when we first started doing it. Disguises rarely Jimmy was like in a a preacher's Robe I had on like sunglasses and a beret and and Jesse had on a beard. So that we we did that. The first few gigs for Prince finally figured no I put these guys minds fishnet curtain and we will be behind bandaged. Six would be in front of it. In addition to watching from the wings as the time in vanity six played prince would sometimes jump in and add instrumentation himself from behind the curtain so fennell but the band would now. I love that because it would be so nasty. When he would come out and he'd be back there playing with us you know he being the band with us and him Jesse the to get tires would be just killing? Like I'd be just had his big grin on my face unplanned because it just so funky nasty you know and people have no idea what's going on back in the advantage. They see in a curtain and these three girls you know. And that's all they're seeing NATO us and we just went at it back there so so it was a lot of fun. I enjoyed that part of it was just some tanks. Incredible to me about you know that he had so much music in him that even though he had his own full set coming up he just couldn't help open south. I've watched him sometime. He'd be on stage. He just be making faces at me and so I knew it was on the amount of time. He's going grabs guitar. have one in Tex- bringing guitar and he started playing with us. He didn't do it all the time but he did a lot. There was a fierce rivalry between Prince and the time that extended back to the musicians beginnings playing lying battle of the bands showcases against each other in North Minneapolis but his prince's keyboard player. Lisa Coleman remembers there was a sense of camaraderie to we would go to truck stops in the middle of the country. You know where there's nothing and then out would walk just a Mexican the time the revolution Vanity six. I'll walking into a truck stop in middle America wanting to Friday sandwich and these truck the Jewish. What the Hell is this? And I'm so glad we all have that time together because it was it was a trip of thread red. We were feeling so strong. And you know. Just young and cocky..

"Each night Princeton has banned with live performances twice the first time when they perform them on stage and then again when they watched the video of their set with prince all piled together on the bus or in a hotel room around a VCR. It's an experience experience. That keyboard player Doctor Thinks still remembers clearly. The tour bus Right after the show we watched the show with him for either critiquing or praise race. V screwed up. You need to watch it later. So so if it was a mistake that was definitely noticeable and he turned to look at you. I just kind of turn my head. Dingo Ho who is that. I don't know that wasn't me a joke with them in mess with them. No pressure then if he did a clinker. I'd say I just heard you do something to so prince made mistakes. Oh sure once in awhile but very rarely very rarely he was one of those artists that you know when he saying live you. He was just impeccable. So you didn't hear flat or sharp notes and Ms Lyrics or anything like that pretty rare but there was an occasional flooding. Sure just like he's human. Prince was a perfectionist and in he wanted everything to be done to that level so we would spend a lot of time building a show playing go reviewing the show. That's La- Roy Bennett. Prince's longtime lighting and production designer. The neon alluring look of the nineteen ninety nine tour. It was primarily dreamed up by Roy. WHO's now an industry leader in live concert design? His most recent clients include Lady Gaga Arianna Guerande and the grammies princess bandmates say he was basically an extension of the band moving in time with the music to create a vacuum light shows. He was also a close friend of prince in this era what I was doing at that period and I did that up until ninety four I actually operated the lights on every show that he did on those fourteen ears. And what that means is that manually pushing buttons or failures or whatever turned to emotionally portray a or vote the emotion of the music individual way Sometimes it was with the rhythm sometimes it was through the emotional side of the music and fading and I never wanted to be mechanical about how I operated. I was very in tune with the music was a visual extension of what was going on. Yeah do you think it helped that you felt connected to prince that you know you had that can personal connection with him and that you kind of move in step with him as he's moving around on the stage and is the band's moving it was. It was very important that I did have that connection. I'm always moved by music but I had that connection with him. It was elevated even more I had to pay a lot of attention to his movement on stage and his little hand signals and things so I could understand where we were at all times. James set new little hand signals. There were certain turnarounds in the music or hits or whatever that he would signal the bandwidth. There's certain things things to withhold fingers up. Make a fist. Whatever that they all meant something because he would improvise at times throughout the show and certain songs was never given that was gonna be consistent? I think so you had to be on your toes. All the.

"This is a live recording of prince and his band performing do me baby in Detroit. On November Thirtieth Nineteen eighty-two it was their fifth of six shows in Detroit on the nineteen ninety nine tour a recording of this entire performance is included in the expanded editions of the Nineteen Ninety Nine reissue arm with a DVD of another full set in Houston and as vault archivist. Michael How told me special care was taken to make sure. These recordings sounded as true as possible to the real experience of attending the nineteen ninety. Nine tour the live thing is of particular Consequence to me because prince was such a compelling you know sort of a peerless live live performer that we thought it essential to include audio and video of the tour And they are a decent amount of board mixes fixes a pretty good quality. That have circulated escaped into the collectors marketplace including at least one of the Detroit shows there. Were six five or six. Detroit shows On the tour two per day for three days in the early version on the first day has circulated which is aboard Max but the second the midnight it show which is the one that we decided to release on. The box. Set had never circulated before and we had multi track recordings for it so it sort of check two boxes. We wanted to present. Can't you know something. Obviously that had never emerged and wanted to present it in the most complete way and with the most integrity possible so we took it right from the two inch schmaltz track masters and we had David Z.. Mix It who is very much. In Prince's orbit at the time was the venue and captured the audio and remembers how the room sounded and the general spirit of the of the performance and mixed it as if we were standing there and you know November of nineteen eighty two. It's a pretty great unsurprisingly. A pretty great performance in Detroit Troy historically had been and was for the rest of Princess career particularly a few sieve audience for him. I think he really was able to shine. And there's a lot of love coming from the stage back to it. I think you can hear a recording..

"I'm an author and a radio. Host living in Minneapolis previously on Prince. The story of nineteen ninety nine. We spent a lot of time talking about Prince in the studio but what I WanNa do now as talk about prince the live performer. If you have ever had a chance to see prince perform live whether in person or maybe with that incredible super bowl halftime show or his his guitar Solo at the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. You know he was an unparalleled performer. And my mind. Just call of these moments that I got to have watching him play at venues here in Minneapolis and especially out at Paisley Park. There was one night in actually somewhat recent years it was back in Twenty fifteen eighteen when prince actually invited Madonna out to Paisley Park to see him perform. And I got the chance to see Madonna watching prints. She was seated on the edge edge of the stage looking up at him as he played. This just monstrous Guitar Solo and her mouth was literally hanging open in awe. And I just had at this moment where I thought if even Madonna who has seen so much in her career and done so much in her career is just mesmerized an awestruck at prince that is a powerful powerful performer. So we're going to get into that because so far we've been talking about some of the early moments that tested Prince's resolve Paul and that propelled him to take work to the next level. And now we're going to ride alongside prince and his band as they hit the road on the historic nineteen ninety nine tour which is referred to amongst fans as the triple threat tour between the fall of nineteen eighty two in the spring of nineteen eighty-three prints vanity. Six and the the time would perform over ninety shows crisscrossing the United States and by the end of it prince was a household name. Oh my gosh. That tour was fun. Fun Fun Fun. That's Brenda Bennett. A vanity six. The nineteen ninety nine tour kicked off on November eleventh nineteen eighty the two and leading up to that all three projects on the lineup put out new albums and prince tapped his openers. To stir up excitement prince wasn't doing any kind kind of interviews now a promotional stuff for his music at the time and we were out doing promo tour's doing videos doing photo sessions sessions television appearances.
