"You do anything like this now i tell you it was my children. I'm not proud of this. But generally when i punish them it was because of a straw that broke the camel's back. And if you know what. I'm talking about where i have spoken to them. And i've spoken to them and i've spoken to them and i've spoken to them until finally i am all out of speaking. And the next time they step over that line they felt the full wrath of dad's judgment. And i can still hear april saying daddy. All i did was isn't your punishment a little bit out of line with what i just did. No april. it's not just for that. It's for all this whole list of things. That was just the straw that broke the camel's back or my daughters hated to hear about the straw that would break the camel's back now to be a good peer and i shouldn't have a straw that breaks camel's back. I guess i should deal with each incident blue. But i have a loving heart. I don't want to lower the boom on it. And i just want to be able to speak to them like you know. Please don't do that anymore. Equal don't do that anymore michael. I'm doing this now with my grandkids. Mike don't do that then he does it again. Mike didn't it. Didn't we talk about this. Yeah papa we talked about it. Did you forget i forgot. Okay don't do that and then again then again. He learned very quickly. That pop at some point would bring out the bill and that was the end of all discussions. that was judgment day when god speaks to you. Do you take advantage of what he's spoken to you and think now a week later the god will forgotten some of what he said the you so you can step in and do what you wanna do. Because now god's not watching. And then when god finally it's the straw that breaks the camel's back much wailing and weeping old god. Are you treating me this way. Isn't this unfair. I mean all the time. I was walking in disobedience. With my parents i still had the blessing of living in their house and eating their table. I still had the blessing of having them buy me clothes. I mean i was enjoying all the benefits of being a part of the family but when the camel's back got broken then i feared i was out of the family because suddenly i had to stay in my room. Twenty four by seven. I couldn't take any meals except very simple. Almost bread and water style meals delivered at my door on the floor. I mean the discipline became very very stiff. And then thought. I was the most poorly treated person and all of the world and surely i was not a part of the family if i was being treated in this manner. I wanna tell you the nine. God's not playing games with us we're making choices day by day about whether we will resist the grace and mercy of almighty god or whether we will receive his grace mersin.

"Want to come and be one with. These people requires that we examine the deepest motivations of our heart. What is it that we really want. What do we really want to. We want separation from god. Is that what we really want. Do we want to go our own way. Do we want to walk in rebellion or do we want the living god of heaven. That decision will not be made. One time. that decision will be made time after time. After time as we forged the chains that will take us either to hell or to heaven every act of disobedience to god forbes a chain every median forms of chain. We walk in what god has called us to or we rebel against what god has called us to. He's not called us to make these decisions out of vacuum is called us to make these decisions out of a great history of knowing who god is and we make these choices in. We make these decisions when we come to the ultimate choice will either be tone deaf and blind and make the choice that takes us to hell or are yours will heal our eyes will see and our hearts will follow hard after god and each of us gets to examine the choices. We're making in our day to either. Be in the presence of god almighty or to be in the presence of darkness in rebellion in in bitterness of heart one path is the path to insanity. The other path is the path to holiness and have to choose which of those will take. We don't just arrive at a destination. We don't just wake up one morning. And say hey. How did i get here.

"He knows there can be no question. He returns to the princess and he tells them no. I cannot go but it's very interesting. Even at this point he begins to hedge his bet. He doesn't tell the whole truth. It doesn't tell them that. God has blessed this people. He leaves the door open for future negotiations. He doesn't want to kill the deal now. Who would have suspected that that one small decision would become a link in a chain. That would take him to hell. But that's how the links are forged. Hearing god speak clearly and then deciding. Okay i hear what god has said. But let's leaves the door open to see if god might change his mind. God gives us clear instruction about a very specific issue. Then we wait and see if we can hedge our bet it'd be god didn't mean quite what he said. Maybe it's okay if i sent a little bit. Maybe it's okay if i have bitterness in my heart after all. They're really nasty people. Maybe it's okay if i become enraged. Maybe it's okay if hedge mud that let's see let's see how much give is. Let's see how flexible god can be and so responding to. His negotiation veil extends more money and more princess. People have more renown to see if they can convince bill them to come so again. Bela goes to god. He does not go into god's presence and worship him and praise him and say lord god. You told me not to go. So i'm not going. Would you help me to knew how to speak to be like now. He doesn't say anything like that. No he goes back into god's presence and god's says okay go now. I've learned enough growing up as a kid in my house that we're my dad would say okay. Go ahead and do it. I'd best new. There's a consequence down the pike. Tone death are you tone-deaf with god can you hear god's own. When he speaks bill goes he saddles his donkey. He's on his way. He sang deals. Not dead deals not dead. God might give me a little break here. The god was very angry when he went. I twenty two and the angel of the lord stood in the road to oppose him. And i suspect that that was a credible manifestation of jesus christ himself because in just moment will fall down and worship him had been an angel. Bill would have been told to get back up on his feet because he was a brother. The lord is standing now in the road with a drawn sword reading to kill him. The donkey sees already bail. Them has lost his sight already. Bill them has lost his ability to here. He is tone death so he doesn't know when god is angry and now he has lost his sight because his heart is consumed with what he wants and his heart being consumed by what he wants makes him tone deaf and makes him blind a donkey concede but he can't see that's not a very high recommendation then. The angel of the lord stood in a narrow path between two vineyards verse twenty five when the donkey saw the angel of the lord chief press close to the wall crushing billingham's foot against it so he beat her again angel move further down angel. Meaning messenger from heaven. There was no room to turn this time. The donkey saw the angel verse twenty seven and she simply lay down again. He beats her with his staff. And the lord opens the donkey's mouth and she says the bill of what have i done to you to make. You beat me these three times and bill them answers the donkey when we become tone death when we become blind. We begin to fight with other donkeys and all that can be heard is the braying of donkeys confusion fighting bitterness hostility. Accusation all because of a choice. The bellum made not too close a deal but to leave the possibilities open after. God said no close it. It's done don't go there. The lord opened limbs is in verse. Thirty one he saw the angel of the lord standing in the road with his sword drawn so he bowed low and fell face down. Now i want you to see the lord confronts him. he's off his donkey. he's on his face. The lord is saying. If you hadn't have stopped by now i would kill you. How many times have i been saved by deer donkey. And i suspect most of you in here have been saved by donkey more than once. Billion answers verse thirty four. I have sinned. I did not realize you were standing in the road to oppose me now. If you were displeased. I will go back so now here he is trying to repent. But it's not repentance.

"The lord called me. When i was very young man to be a pastor only spirit fell upon me i wept. My parents. were very concerned. Because they didn't believe such a little boy could receive such a call. I've courses will little boy said yes. But as i grew older i rebelled against that i wanted to explore the possibility of being an attorney and i wanted to explore the possibility of state policeman that i wanted to explore the possibility of being entrepreneur. I had all kinds of things that i tried to go do in be but at that crucial juncture the holy spirit stepped in at each place and said stop rebelling against me. You're going to do what i've told you you're going to do or my judgment will be on. You was terrified of that. The part of what. I learned this. I went down. This path is that. I could say yes and rebel against god and gooby a state policeman. Today i can't even if the lord would let me. I can't do you know why. I'm too old to be a state policeman. I've gone down the road too far. Gone past that junction. We're my life could of split off. I've gone past the junction where i can be. An attorney passed by many of these decisions now. The lord was the one who stepped in and made the decision. But i also made it in fear and trembling before him so in one sense. My life has slowly had options cut off at the same time. Other roads have opened ahead of me so the today. I have many more options than i had back. Then but still i hear the clear voice of god saying this is the way. Walk in it or my judgement will fall on you. You are tonight. Living the result of your choices your decisions the way you feel emotionally inside tonight is a result of decisions and choices that you have made. I didn't make those decisions for you. You made those decisions now. There's one thing that's been very painful for this fellowship to face up to and that is the responsibility for the decisions. We've made in for a long time. I participated in this game of trying to say it was professor so and so it was bob. It was jim it was mary. It was somebody who did this to me. But i have to recognize tonight. I am where. I am doing what i am doing. Because i responded in obedience to the holy spirit whether i like it or not there. There are some of you tonight. Who are not where you were told to be. You went your own direction and you had to deal with that. And i have to confess tonight i am here not my any wisdom on my part it was just i was afraid to disobey we make choices and those choices. Load us down with feelings but those feelings are not the reality. The reality is we're has. Jesus called us and our week in step with the holy ghost or we in steph with the devil. That simple were either in step with a holy spirit or were in step with the devil and we get to choose. I wanna share with you a story tonight of a man who chose look at reality square in the face and said i choose this course and then he paid the price as all of us must for the course we choose in the end. I'm going to stand before the judgement. God as will you. And i will not have a line of people beside me that i can point to in saber plaza. He made me do it. She made me feel this way. I couldn't help my anger. i couldn't help my bitterness. i couldn't help it. They made me do it. No one i stand. Before the judgement of god all excuses will be stripped away and i must stand before that judgment bore god in either the lord. Jesus christ will say that one has the same dna. That i have. My blood is in him. My blood is on him. My blood covers her. Or jesus will say. I don't know that one take them away. That's a stranger to make they're not of mine. There of the devil. Now we don't arrive at that place with one fell swoop. We arrive at that place with decision after decision after decision after decision and frankly it's after so many decisions that some of us even loose sight of where our decisions are taking us.

But it's also about William O'Neill, the man who infiltrated the Black Panthers in spied on Hampton on behalf of the FBI. Shaka King told me that the Lucas Brothers who co wrote the story, sold the idea to him like this. Their pitch that they laid out was we want to make a movie about Fred Hampton and William O'Neal. That's kind of like the departed the 2006 Martin Scorsese movie Inside the World of Cointelpro, or Counterintelligence program, the 19 sixties project where the FBI infiltrated and disrupted groups like the Black Panthers, and I was like I see it. I'm done. I'm in Judas is a tight, intense movie. Yes, like the departed and other Scorsese type crime movies. It's a long way, though, from King's first feature film newly weeds from 2013. So what you got here? Newly weeds tells the story of a young couple in Brooklyn who smoke a lot of weed where Judas is loud and fast. Really? Weeds is quiet and tender. I'm done. I'm done online. Won't want Wanna hang out. We hang up. Yeah. How are we supposed to go to the Galapagos? If you mind the bag every two minutes. It hits similar beats as movies by other indie darling directors like Joe Swanberg or the Duplass Brothers. The film Independent Spirit Awards even gave King the Someone to watch award after it came out, which came with a $25,000 grant. Not bad for someone fresh out of N Y. U film school. But after that initial fanfare, I was so depressed after making newly weeds and my expectations for the release just not coming to fruition. The movie didn't get much attention outside the festival circuit from agents and distributors, largely because it was a movie with black actors who no one knew on at that time that was deemed worthless. The film's release in 2013 wasn't that long ago, but it was just before what a friend of Kings jokingly dubbed. The Black Excellence Industrial Complex. You're Selma's and Moon Lights and Black Panthers when movie studios realized they could make a lot of money by releasing films by and starring black people. Nearly weeds. Loss of momentum burnt king out on the idea of making another feature film, But he did have an idea for a short rolling around in his head. It was kind of silly kind of outrageous, sweetheart. Lips. Excuse me, miss. It's called Moon Yang's after the Italian slur for black people want heard on the streets of Brooklyn in it, King and two others play these three black guys who talk like they're in the mom movies. King has such a fondness for It was somewhat inspired by King's experience growing up in a mostly black part of Brooklyn, but going to high school in South Brooklyn, where everyone the Irish Americans, Greek Americans, Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, all talks like the Italian American kids, and those kids were Hilarious. They were profane. They were quick witted, and we were not friends put like I could appreciate their sense of humor. The movie is a concise examination of race, gender gentrification. As King's character gets into an argument with his sister over a MetroCard, you did not have a dime. Put 1000 until the white guy comes by and says hi to the sister. Hi. How you doing? How are you? You guys just don't know what both outta here. Oh, Polluted the movie is fun and poignant, and the process reminded King how much he loved making movies. That movie saved me. You saved me. I didn't see that or know that about Shaka. But I could understand, and I could see how that could happen. Charles de King, no relation to director Shocking is the CEO and founder of Macro which since its founding in 2015 has produced movies and TV shows featuring non white people, including Judas and the Black Messiah. It was before the oscarssowhite moment. Of 2015. There's a lot that's happened since then. There is much more of an openness and I think an understanding of the business opportunity there. Which brings us to King today, making a movie about an anti capitalist black radical at a very capitalist Hollywood studio without watering down the politics. The deal is to respect the authenticity. Fred Hampton Jr is the current chairman of the Black Panther Party, Cubs and son of Fred Hampton. He says he and the other Panthers had their guards up when they were approached about this film. The Panthers have long been subjected to propaganda campaigns and misrepresentations. But he says King and the rest of the cast and crew definitely navigated the crossroads between their creative goals and the Panthers. Political ones. Well enough, anyway. Revolutionaries never satisfied. You know, I wish there was more political cartoon. We could've pushed. In a certain point, However, I'll put the people's need before before my needs my wants and desires. For instance, the relationship between Fred Hampton and his partner, Deborah Johnson, was a tricky thing to get right. The poet.

"Her that was her baby and then okay she comes out and she's the only one that had breasts and i remember that one with the breast but i couldn't okay. That was just the same okay. It's all right here and i was like. Oh a female okay because arrests were obviously got it so maybe she was in a strong. And maybe okay. That's all right. I'm just you know i'm with you. I told you can buy that. I totally agree with you. Totally in. that's the only takeaway that i was like putting into my head to make it work. Yeah maybe she wasn't. Everything else was wonderful because they were all males. Pretty good there are flipping. Weren't shit and i'm like well that's adrenaline so i thought all that i did so that was doing. It was harder for the female to move around in the blood than the other females. I don't know. Yeah but i get it. Yeah i understand you. Are those the picking. But that's okay i but those brought up in the next scene some all right. Well i gotta talk about. I did want to talk about it but no it's a. It's a legit point dude. That's like she would have been gone. I just don't know. I don't see that i just but you know And again It didn't take me out of the movie too much because the movie so fucking intense how it is and graphically violent. And you're just kind of like your with lake fighting with them. You know are two different monsters. Oh yeah but if you really think about it and if you wanna over analyze everything they provided they were just protecting their. You know their their area. I mean they're these group of girls just stumbled into it not wanting to invade them but basically they were just protecting. The mother was protecting her child and they ended up killing the child. You know they're trying to eat in their basically. You know there's some you're basically trying to eat. They eat whatever they go. They go up to the surface and bring yes so whatever they different so whenever they encounter you know be it moves or deer or human. Yeah they eat them you know. And that's just the way they are. They're not right trying to hurt him for just a hurt them. They're booed so it's just look on there. What is is that these group of girls in turn into. What primal man is ryan. It's basic survival of the fittest right and They weren't trying to kill them just to kill them. They were trying to kill them for food. And because invading their territory to try. And that's why it's so believable to me. I like to put an like parallel. This you know it. It reminds me of surfers out in the ocean. You know i was sharks right. You are in their environment. You're in their home. You know i mean this is and they're predators. So i mean you know you just can't be like oh wait a minute. Well no. you're in their home yet. If you if you go graving you to have a map and make sure you're right cave otherwise you're going to get attacked by monsters and they're going to kill in this movie. That's right that's right. That's the underlying theme of this bill. But i liked what i was going to say before we I liked. I liked the different character. I thought that they had did the different characters. Well i liked the different personalities. I i i had and i don't know ahead this. If you found this the same way. I the girl with the short hair. Yeah was she a dyke. Was she involved with those girls. Possibly i don't know that she was involved with one of them. Anything nothing against no no nothing against it but i think she was a lesbian. Yeah i think. I think you mentioned a girlfriend or something. Not that. there's anything wrong with it. No that's fine. Yeah that's right. I was just trying to understand like Did they have a relationship with one of the other girls. And i don't think so into it not that now but honestly the relationship with the Oriental woman in the other guy that turned out to be a major issue in the film right because she ends left abbey was that was just nuts. Oh my god. I knew what was coming and the one girl i kind of set it up. Because she's like you know she tells her what happened. Oh yeah she says don't trust her. I don't trust left me to die. And then tests her going on what happened to what's her name guy. All right right right. Yeah okay gotcha. So now it's common so was too. She's and she uses her has survive. I like the to the last and then leaves her so she can get out. And what. I what. I really found interesting and actually kind of funny attack is when she goes up the she sees the sunlight at towards the right up the mountain out in the bones and then she comes. Out of the earth like she's being reborn. Yeah i don't know if you've got that by got as. She looked like she was coming out of a womb. Horn was like what's that all about. I would be a little elated to was just it was. You could tell it was deliberately done like. He was trying to make a point lake. I dunno. she's like she's different now. I guess yeah. Yeah but then we find out but it's only a dream. Wh wh where did that come from you. Don't think so. No no is that. wait a minute. Is this what you got at the at what i got out of it because the last seen as her back in the cave with their daughter that i miss something. I've got the director's cut. Oh you do. You must've because i didn't. That's not how it ends on my With that you watched. She's in the car out of there right and the semi goes past. And then that's it and she's in the car and then she sees the one girl that she left for dead in the car seat scarcer. And i'm like what is that about. Remember.

"Attention for you to oh absolutely. Yeah yeah oh yeah and the thing about this movie is that you know. It's a group of girls and when this movie came out there wasn't a lot of movies like that where it was like all about this group of women right and And and you know it starts off like typical horror film. They're gonna do this thing and blah blah blah. and then. He can tell that something was going on with The one girl's boyfriend or who or husband and all it's yeah and And then out of nowhere nowhere he gets and you're like what the fuck does happen. God turn my. I blinked in the next thing you know this guy's got a you know pull through sad thing was as that i forgot. It was in europe so the car is the other way i thought she got killed and what i thought too. I'm like how did she get. How did she how she still alive. And i'm like yeah because the driver is in the other side. Yeah that got me back. Now i and again i. It's been so many years since i watched this movie. But when they were in the car like wait a minute. I think something happens it just as i said that boom it happened now. Did the little girl died in the car to correct. Yes that's what i thought. Okay right. okay Yeah and then. What really got me was when they read the cabin. I totally forgot about that scene. Where she wakes up in the middle of the night she looks out the window was dreaming and then the one poll goes to her head. That's good that got me. I'm like i totally forgot that. That was great. Great moment it was funny. It's not funny but what's interesting about the film is that you know the beginning of the film. You kind of like you know with the interaction with everybody interlaken. This is whatever but as centro as soon as they re repel into the cavern the it turns on a dime into us and its relentless. All my god i forgot how craft of you know how violent and gory this movie. Oh yeah i am just like holy shit. I know i know. Yeah kids crazy. You were talking about with the claustrophobia. Which really adds to it but was created that ad. What's great this film is that has all the classic elements of horror film. You're in dark places. You're in cramped quarters and you're dealing with an enemy you don't understand or a monster you don't really understand what they find out quick. That's what gives them the edge defied. It is that they understand it really quick. And what's great is that you think you know the the girls i think are going to collapse or the ones that start know that step up and go. Hey i gotta turn into a a. I don't know like a not a. But i got i got to stand up and kill these things you know after become a predator too stronger and bray more brave and and just absolutely yeah. I really like they did that. I like the one with the short hair to do that. But she's the one that gets hurt. I you know in the only forgot about that seeing Then it got me. So good and i was like damn when she's fighting. Those monsters in her friend comes up and she turns and she picks the pick off. I remember yeah. I forgot about and i'm like oh yeah. I said out loud wind damage. I know because. I know i could see doing that. It will absolutely believable. Because you're absolutely you're in helmet trying to survive and you're in that you know freak out mode of i'm trying to survive and she killed all these things. She never done it before. Obviously and she thought it was another one who thought it was another one in which is done so well so believable. When you're like bach. Now the only thing i want to say about that scene okay. I don't mean to be a downer now okay. it's okay. I love the movie. I love the movie but but watching it again. There was two parts of it that i wanted to talk to you about this e felt the same way but in saying this it you know it just i still. It didn't ruin it. I still love the film. I went with it. It's okay but it was two things that i noticed and i figure i might as well talk about since you up that scene. So he pulls the axe out of her neck. No i know what you're talking about. Okay go you know where. I'm going to go next. Go ahead okay to me. She wouldn't have made it. That would have been at yes. She would have bled out totally a we find out later. Okay you do agree with that okay. Because she hit her in the neck she obviously would have hit the juggler and it would have been i some minutes before she would. She wants to blow it out. Go so that that was the you know it. I liked what they did. It surprised me too when he when she finds her later. And like. Wait a minute you should be in blood up. I know that's how i felt and pick. It was sticking out neck right internet career great special effects and it was beautiful. But i you know i did like the scene where she's like. You know the. Juneau did this to me trust. I think they could have done it better. And i totally agree with. You could a worked at in some other way. I probably could've the way they did it now. I didn't have a problem with it when it came up. I was kinda like wait a minute that i remember when she finds like is it the same girl and i'm like because she had a fucking thing i know this like she's still bleeding out but she's still alive on a i'm just like yeah i mean there there. There have been some time that it just it. Just it would've been quick. So i i i don't know i just have a hard time feeling like the director the producer who would wait a minute. Hold on a second like nobody's said anything like wait a minute. The other scenes is when Sarah thicker name is the main the blonde. She's fight she lands in the pool and she's and then the other the monsters in the pool and the trump chunk top earth female months. Right the female lead. Yeah well you're talking about when she goes into the pool blood the pool of blood. She's reaching for torch so the female creature creature jumps sonner. I just felt like yeah. There was a lot of time to start biting ripping her skin and stuff. And i just didn't feel like the fight was i didn't see her like kicking and banner in on i mean. She was kind of like more reaching for something to hit her. With which is fine. You would do that. But in the meantime this creatures like all over her and i just felt like The only thing. I got from that and i totally agree with you. Okay maybe taken here. But i the only thing that i took from it because it was in the back of my head. I didn't wasn't something where it went. Wait a minute but it was. It was now that you bring up was in the back of my head. While i was watching the scene the only thing that i kinda put into it was that because she was female. She wasn't as strong. And that's okay. That's just me trying to email part. She was a female. 'cause remember the the one creature comes in attacks.

And he's he's talking about now because he's just sick he's just love these films just just loves. He's like i was i heard about. You could see a cameraman in this shot. Where they're coming over the bridge and he was like putting it on pause and then slow mo now that we couldn't find the camera man but there was a car behind their car shouldn't have been there and he pointed out. Yeah looks good. So i'm like. Oh oh yeah. Yeah no. I am like you know. I didn't know that. I know about the car but i just don't remember a lot of it if i had seen it i i sure it just just didn't remember it. Evil to a lot of. It's you know it's kind of well. Evil dead to kind of an upgrade from evil debt. One but he said that too. And he's like. I liked that. I liked to better than one and i'm like really well. The first ones more. I mean he was going at it as be scary and three full blown horror film. The second one was pretty much making fun kind of over the top right. Yeah and i was really low budget. And oh yeah i mean he was pointing out not bruce campbell but the other guy he was pointing out how the hairstyle changes all. It is so bad so bad. It's like along the signed birds in one seat. And then the next thing you could tell they they put in the scene. And it's he's clean cut and it is like so obvious filmmaking. He's really good. Yeah you can't beat it. Do you like the first one you don't or do you like the second one better. I liked the first one on certain levels. I like the second one on certain levels. I the second one. Obviously more policy had a bigger budget. It's funny right. You know the first one is just a really good balls out horror film yet. Is you know. Sam raimi's director. He's just a amazing. I mean as an independent making this movie and a low budget and you look at the camera and all the stuff that they did with hardly any money you got to sit there and go look at an auction go. Wow i was. This wasn't a hardly any money. You said yeah. This is what we talked about texas chainsaw. You know with them. You know putting a camera on a on a two by four and running with it. And that's what they did in the first one in the law you know the first evil dead they put in. When you're going through the force it was the same thing. They put the camera a two by four near ran through divorced. The evil you know they. They don't steady camera of the evil going through the forest. The branches moving denomination with the branches for the rape scene. And it's just well it's amazing. The second one is supposed to be more like it's supposed to be. It's not a comedy but like a guard comedy. He's making fun of the first one. Basically what they're doing and then it was just an excuse to. I think you know bringing in army of darkness. Because he wanted to connect to but he wanted to redo it because you you know he really wanted to. Have you know he had the budget to do it. So i don't know what the thinking is behind it have to bring sam. Raimi showed that they would love to do someday. Absolutely so if you're listening You know give us a call and a lot of the heavy talk. That's right that's right. that's right was the first one. His first film is Well it wasn't as first film. But i think it was like a second or or his first feature but yeah bruce campbell's could see all young is the first one is all. I know i noticed that right away. I'm like holy cow. What year was the eighties. Right i think so. And the only reason that movie became popular was because stephen king saw the film and gave it rave reviews and then at the movie blew up. Wow so really. Sammy owes his whole career to stephen came and can yeah. He really liked it. He thought it was great. And carlos said he'd met the three girls The three ladies they were the nicest can be. He's met bruce a bunch of time. He said he didn't invent the other guy.

That was all we would need it just like two minutes maybe to give us a little bit of how the two of them connect and again. Maybe that's something that they did have but it got cut for time right exactly. No no telling what was then there now. Yeah because i imagine this aired in like a three hour block with the movie runtime coming to just over two hours. Yeah that's probably about as the commercial time limp times then. Yeah and it just felt like there were a few pieces of this that if they would have tweak them slightly i think this would have been -sarily significantly better movie but it would have been better for sure. Yeah exactly if they'd just a little bit of tweaking really could have amped it up a little bit even with the low production values and limited budget. Yes because like you said. Mackerras is a person who seems to know how to do a lot with a little and that concern me help especially you know i imagine. Even though we've had big hit horror movies like halloween. A nightmare on elm street friday the thirteenth scream so on and so forth. It seems like there isn't nearly as much money put into those genres still. Yeah definitely even from you know folks like bloom house like they are on top right now for spending a little bit of money to run through as many horror films as they can in between releasing their more not quite prestige but as close as they get to making prestige style films. Yeah that's a bummer. Because i would really love to see like a big big budget horror movie and see what someone would be able to do with that. And i mean don't get me wrong. I love a bunch of the horror movies. I have watched over especially the last few years. And i don't think you necessarily need a big budget for the genre but it would be nice to see what would be possible right and taking a risk doing something new and unique. Or if you're going to adapt a stephen king book with it like they did with it. I would choose a more because it had a pretty decent budget was what like eighty million something like Seventy million. That sounds about right. But i am not one hundred percent sure. I know dr sleep was between the forty five and fifty five range three and that one was fantastically good and they took risks and did something different and something that. I don't know that everyone would have worked. Which isn't that is that no. That's mike flanagan isn't it. Yeah yet and it worked so well. And i would have loved. I would love to see something done like that was even more of a budget. 'cause and you could do something much more fantastical like. Yeah not tommy knockers. Tommy knockers like size story or needful things or something like that where there's all these different pieces going on and to have those big budget special effects and the big cast would really elevate the story to a whole 'nother level. The first movie was a budget of thirty five million. And i imagine that it was all the kids so they have to pay nearly as much because then in part two you have twice as many cast members right. And you have you know. James mcevoy and bill hader jessica chastain. Who are all not cheap. Not cheap actors. They are not. Tom skerritt money. They are big money. Yeah because the budget for that one was seventy nine million so it was more than doubled from the first movie and the special effects in that one are a lot more. There's a lot more of them and a lot more fantastic. Yeah because they had to age down some of the kids too because they grew up too fast in between movies. He's right. i'm sure we'll see some of that with the new stranger. Things season two. Yeah we'll see on that one. But i don't know if i have too much more to say about desperation. I thought it was okay. I gave it a two out of five. But it didn't really grab my attention the way i was hoping maybe an onscreen adaptation would with this. Yeah i agree. And i'm willing to say this i would say that's about where i'm at a two out of five. I think it had a lot of potential. I think if we had seen a feature release like an r. rated feature release it would have been much more interesting but because the says to eran. Tv because they had the limited budget because because because it just never really rises to the level that it could have because it is a very very brutal story and there's lots of opportunity to exploit that for scares but because it never does. It's just kind of like okay. This is watchable. i can put it on. Well you know. I was building my son dresser. While i'm watching it and don't feel like i missed anything to bat but you know it was. I would be happy to watch another one. And it's certainly better than something like the golden years or tommy knockers. But it's not the biggest compliment. I will say that. yes sometimes. it's just tough with the stuff that's made for. Tv because you know they're limited in what they can do automatically by being made for tv during this time period exactly. It's not like it is now where tv shows. I mean even something like even something that's on network. Television can have a huge budget like better call saul well. That's funny but that's basically a regular tv channel. Now yeah amc. I think you meant yes. Amc thank you. Networks like amc fx are definitely pushing the limits to what you can err on actual tv whereas you know something like hbo you have free rein pretty much right. We can get watchmen which has done for days just four days on which its end it allows them to show a lot more graphic violence and allow a lot more of just everything but you can. The production value quality has gone up so significantly for tv movies and tv shows that it's like the new stand. That's coming out. I can't remember who's doing that. Which which production company is doing it. But it's cbs access. Where it's going to be airing and then you know it's one of those things where mackerras did the stand..

"Everyone chat cemetery is back as is katie schaefer. Today we're talking all about the two thousand six movie desperation. It was directed by mick garris. Who we've talked about quite a bit on this podcast katie. How are you doing today. I'm doing great. I just finished watching desperation. So i have well. I mean some stuff to say about it. It wasn't wasn't the most riveting king film but it's still pretty interesting. I think the thing is you know. Desperation wasn't necessarily one of my favorite books of his. I think it's very interesting. What he did with desperation and the regulators. But it just wasn't necessarily for me. Yes i can agree with that. It a very definite audience. And i probably was not part of that audience. Yeah it's not necessarily that. It's such a bizarre story. It's just the way it's told. And the way it ties into the regulators and then the fact that we don't have a regulators adaptation to kind of go with. This feels a little weird to. Yeah do you think that they didn't do it. Was it never in the plans or was it that this one didn't do well enough and so they were like a. Let's not well some fun facts. This was actually supposed to come out on new line with a thirty three million dollar budget but then scream kind of blew up and took over and they put the brakes on that and it ended up being resurrected for tv as a tv movie and the budget got cut to twelve million dollars. That's a big difference. It's a huge difference. And you can really tell i mean i would guess that some of the cast was attached before that happened. Like you know tom. Skerritt ron perlman. 'cause i don't know how they got run perlman. I guess this was pretty early in his career but still yeah and obviously much later in tomsk carrots career because i just watch alien for the first time in one of my first notes was how is this guy in both of these things. Yeah yeah it is very much. That i i agree and steven weber. Obviously had worked with mick garris previously on the shining and he's also going to be in one of the episodes of nightmares and dreamscapes. Oh excellent i'm excited. I like steven weber. I think he's a really fun actor. I mean he's not hardy or something but he gives a great performance he goes all in on it and i think particularly in this movie. He shows more of a range than in say the shining. Yeah i would agree with that. And then you also have anna beth gish. Who has a familiar name by now. To a lot of people mapfre moore who is in pretty much. All of the mackerras adaptations in one way or another. If i'm not mistaken. Yup i always love to see him because he also gives a very. This one was a very restrained matt for her performance on a slave. But i still really enjoy it. He's never really meant to be a main character in any of that. Opticians he's appeared in. I think that's what makes him interesting. He's always playing these sort of bit roles and they vary so much like this role is absolutely nothing like trashcan. Man right exactly. That's i think what everybody thinks of. When you think of matt fraser in a season king movie is either that or i mean. I guess he's in lawnmower man. And i guess that's technically a stephen king had up but just barely barely because he did sue them to take his name off right Not mine don't want this. Which is really saying something. I stephen king. Yeah exactly and as far as the story goes you know. It doesn't really live up to the casting. No no and i think that was part of our complaint with the book too seemed sure member felt like the book was really really over overly written for the story that it was presenting because it was a pretty. I could see how they didn't need to make this into a miniseries. Even though it's you know a brick essentially yeah it was supposed to be like two night event to and they boiled it down to a movie instead which is probably better because for the most part. A lot of the mini series. That are two or three nights tend to be you know two hours each night so this would've been three hours instead of two and change and i don't know what they would have done. In the meantime. What else would they have added to this. I don't think that there's anything they really missed out on in making this one like all the big plot points get hit. Everything wraps up pretty nicely. It doesn't feel slow at any point which it definitely does in the book. And i even added a little bit more story in regards to The chinese workers. Because i don't remember that part in the book could just be not remembering but what would they have put in here to make it longer. Yeah i don't know. And i actually felt like this was a slow burn not in a good way necessarily because i am a huge fan of shows that are slow burns like better. Call saul for instance. I absolutely love that show. It doesn't necessarily move the plot ahead very much each episode but by the time you get to the end of the season the payoff is more than worth it and i felt like with this movie being over two hours long. I didn't really feel like the payoff at the end. Was worth it. No oh no. The path is definitely not worth it. Like with the book and the story in general. It's just a very plodding. But as in p. l. o. d. not p. l. o. t. I think in some it works for the story but the story is again. If it's not your thing then it's not really going to work for you personally and make errors is someone who obviously has a passion for the horror genre and specifically stephen king works. You know. i've talked about him with you in particular quite a few times on here and i just recently did an episode on riding the bullet so he has done a wide variety of different kinds of stephen adaptations. And it's not that. I thought this was poorly made by any means. The production quality is always pretty. Good when it comes to medicare setup stations. It's just more so the stories that he chooses to adapt..

"A bomb at a rig that up. I'm like that that's one hundred percent actually a thing that you probably know but also like where to find demolition stuff and how to transport it safely stuff like all right ray. Reagan is taken out. But he's a g he's really. He was a very important piece of the puzzle but he takes himself out because he knows. That's the only way for the plan. Work which noble fucking sacrifice. Yeah oh totally forgot to. The raggedy man is entering people's dreams. He's entering everyone's dreams like normies marks all of the people that killed the after the initial policy like in the first day. All of the phone. The phone is start flocking together. They call them fly out and they start having weird behavior and so clay and his group here like the death knell of a bunch but not close by but close enough and they get the idea to kill a flock that they're near they do that with jordan and the headmaster and stuff and so the writing man the mind is petty. As they take long revenge and it's it's their mistake to do so but they decide that they're gonna mark people like clay as untouchables. So like no normies are allowed to touch them but also none of hive mind. We'll touch them. They're like they're shunned and he's funneling them to to kill them in a public spectacle to basically to take a long form revenge because he thinks he has the time so like the people that they need on the road after after they kill the flock any normies avoid them and like them threaten them and all that stuff. They're like no we've seen it. You're you're in our dreams like you're you're the bad people you're that you're that bunch of people like you're you know you're screwed all this kind of stuff which comes into play because the only people that end up talking to him talking to them. Are this other group. Din denise and ray who killed who you end up finding out are the ones that killed the people that they heard die before. And so that's why they end up linking together because they have they share in this mass murderer that they've done which is fascinating he gets into it at the end of the book for like two sentences but it's interesting because like aside from the first pulse like the phone is basically like they're like our time's daytime. Your time has nighttime. We won't mess with you. You don't mess with us and people are still like they're a group of people killing them. Is this murder. So it's an interesting thing that he does. He does pretty well yeah. Is there anything you want to touch on before. We dive into the clay johnny kind of ending here. I guess the one thing i will say is that i wish the phone or stuff that we had more perspective on them. I know sometimes like we just following the normal people which makes sense but a lot of his books he will give you a chapter or something from a perspective of the antagonised and. I wish that we had actually gotten that in this. Because i would've been interested to see how the pros would have looked if we're in the perspective of this hive mind and and to. I don't necessarily need to know their plans. But i would have loved to have known a little bit more about what they felt like so. That's the only thing. I kind of wanted to talk about. Well yeah when. I was going through this. You know i was like i don't really remember a whole lot of this after sitting on it for like a week or so and i think part of it was that you have the raggedy man as this big intimidating villain and at the same time. It almost feels like it would have worked better if he got like the rental flag treatment. Yes yes exactly. That's that's what i wanted you hit. Yes exactly. I wanted him. I wanted him to feel like a presence. Like i wanted to feel the evil of his presence from his own perspective. That would have just been so fascinating to me. Yeah for sure. I also love that. He's the president of harvard. I love it. i love the rain. His bunch it's like uncle steve. Tell us how you really feel about. Harvard for real. He keeps mentioning that harvard hoodie. Boy what are you. What did harvard boston due to you that you destroy them as much as he loves the red sox. I know what boston could've done him. Maybe he was really mad about the team that year. Maybe maybe but to wrap things up with the clay and johnny ending. Did you get the feeling that johnny was. Not johnny at all and clay was kind of. Just oh here's a here's a boy. He's mine absolutely okay. Waving describes johnny when he's actually finally describing him like more than halfway through the book which is bananas he's like short and stocky and he has really short like dark hair. And then you see this kid and it has been ten days twelve days since he has seen his son and he finds the skinny longhaired kid. That's like that is not the same boys are like absolutely not. He just took a boy and start calling him. Johnny and the boy was obviously terrified of him would not talk to him. And you're just like and kept trying to win. Wow i understand why this happened but we had no indication throughout the rest of the story that clay would be this delusional. Yeah i think that's right. I wish we had seen his mental breaks a little bit more. I think he starts to you. Start to get the feeling when he gets the letter from johnny. This is probably the most fucked up thing that i'll say on this podcast not ever but i almost wish we had seen a boy in the fire. Whatever or dead. That definitely was johnny alike but him going. Oh that boy looks just like my son. But it's not and then he finds this other boy. This is my son because he's like a week you know he's alive and there's hope there. I almost wish that that was because i feel like we needed one. More beat him clearly being kind of delusional before we get to that let like ending. I'm glad i wasn't just making that up in my head. Because i was like did i just misread this entire section. No i super felt like it wasn't like johnny at all like it did not feel like his son at all from the description also to the way that like the kid was reacting to even though he was a fogler lake. They are starting to return back to themselves. A little in this kid is like trying to hide from him. Like hiding under objects wandering away like yeah. That definitely wasn't a son okay. Like i don't know if i've just read too many stephen king books lately. Or what but this seems very off. What stephen king you let us know either way because clearly you must listen to this so yes hit us well vida..

"I had gone through and read some of the shorter books. And because we have the six little chapter books for the green mile i was like oh already does and i was like i think i understood this book the first time i read there so many things that like i wanna go back and reread of his. Just because i was way too young. Like i read the dead zone. I was way too young for that. I don't know how those maybe like twelve something like that. I couldn't fully grasp. And like i remember when desperation came out i read the regulators instead. Cassation was the bigger one but it was like they came out at the same time right in there. Yeah it was the same different universe. And i was like all right. I'll do short one. I don't remember what year that was that i was definitely. I cannot fathom what i was reading at the time. So i'm still not sure could tell you what happened in those books and i just read them this year. Yeah i would be interested. I liked what he did there where he was like same is different universe. I wonder what that would look like for sell. Like what other kind of adventure could these characters get up to. Because i can imagine them in like his other books and how they y'all acting like imagine them in like the stand or something like it's like a similar situation but to the left like i can imagine like which groups they would end up in how they would like fight against where they were going and stuff like that so it's a good idea. Well if you look at how long it took him to give us a sequel to the shining. Nothing is impossible with him. That's sir that's where there is. One thing i really want to talk about. And it is the childs shoe that alice fines and kind of uses as a way to house her anxiety and trauma while it was just very strange but also very interesting. Because you're like a shoe baby nike. i was like. Oh yeah oh Explains it you never see anything like there has to do with it. And he never shies away from violence so clearly purposeful. There's no body. There's no anything. She just like a baby shoe. And i was hyper fixated on that. She was that was like reading the book when she loses it. I was like oh no. She's i knew what was going to happen to her when she lost a shoe like the first time to i remember thinking. Yeah where i was like. Oh this shoes and station of her. She's like this loss shoe because she lost her mom. Her mom tried to kill her lake. All this kind of stuff like. She's she's without her other half and now the shoes gone. She's she's it's only a matter of time which is the only thing that really pissed me off about the book. There's a couple of things where i was like. Well that is a time boy. Yeah like spoiler to later on in the book she is the only one of the main alcohol them because i count jordan amongst them to die and i was like you had three white question. Mark six male characters and you killed the only girl okay and he brings on another girl as if it's the same like no. No no no. No you don't get to do that. That was part of the books that like. I like checked out a little bit but made it through the end. Yeah it was certainly a rough moment when you know. You're going to lose alice because even though she's a teenager who might not be the most helpful you understand exactly why she's acting the way she's acting because of everything that has happened and it's going to take her longer to process these things then. It would for clay tom because they have the capacity to understand. We just need to get through this whereas alice. Is this terrified girl who is trying to deal with this trauma and anxiety and so many other things all at once that it would probably overload most teenagers and i gotta say like once she kinda gets together. She's salad for the rest of the art. Which is in the book like yes. She's she's super unstable in the beginning but like you said like she just like literally like her mom just tried to murder her in the streets and she was running from someone who was going to god knows from her so when i first meet her. She is an absolute mess and like well. That's reasonable and then she pulls it together and then she's the one that gets them on the road. She's the one that's like we have to pack these things. We have to do this. We have to do that when the men are kind of at loose ends. And so like i said. Choose the one with the to brain cells between the the lot of them So it is a real bummer. When you lose her. And i you know i think for me. I think i think he felt like he had to kill someone. And i think that lick just did the math right Opening character. Which i think is wrong. They can definitely kill the main character. Gatemouth runs proof. That killer character will. Killing the gauge will be wrong. Because there's only one gay dude and that's messed up. And then the little boy reminds him of his sons. We have to keep him around to put him in danger later. So we have to kill the girl i see i see your calculus. They're just just don't think that's true. I think you can hurt them without killing. Think you to do it but you know it made sense and then you meet up with that other group of characters who have their own girl another two two dudes in a in a lady and she's pregnant so it's we have to be extra worried about her. Yeah yeah sometimes. He makes choices. And you're like Did you need to do that. But you have other times where you have female characters who are the central figures and while they might not be handled perfectly..

"You know. There's more walking in the dark tower books to of course but i think what he did well in the dark tower books. That didn't necessarily come through here. Was he added the element of roland telling stories while they were on this journey so that it would pass the time and not feel like they were necessarily standing in one place for me. This felt like it needed the same editor as the gunslinger because they felt like it should be that long because they don't slingers pretty short too like shorter than this by far and there was like chunks of stuff where i was like. Oh you didn't need this at all. I just think you're editor can no longer tell you know it wasn't bad. It wasn't something that was bad but it was just like. Oh this is you got to trim the fat on this. Use that delicious fat for other fix. This needs to be a lean story because this is supposed to be us in this person's head as opposed to world building So we don't need as many words and he repeats a bunch of stuff. Yeah a lot of people will say the same thing and it's not like a motif it's just like back to back to back nearly steven please please But at the same time like you have these moments of like tension were even there. Isn't anything necessarily bad happening. That i thought was really cool and really interesting. Like when there's a point where the cellphone people who i keep calling mind but they start invading their dreams and klay wakes up and he's drawing. The person that he saw in his dream in the act of drawing is so beautifully described also like intense. For no reason. You're like he's just drawing a picture like everyone will expert like it really is like you're with him and it's so intense in the way describes this person's face like i could see this and i was like all right like that to me. That's perfect story stuff for this. He calls them the phone crazies or the phone. There's not the most clever nickname for them. But it is what we are working with. And i really think that at the time we spend with klay. Tom and alice gives us a very good idea of who those characters are. And it's kind of what keeps you going with this story. Because i truly think this might have worked better as a novella length story because you know i read the colorado kid right before this and that flew by this even though it is one of his shorter book switches. Funny thing to say because it's just a normal length book it still felt like it was long and if i have any one sort of overall criticism of king books is that most of them could be edited down more and looking ahead at what i have to read. I'm just like ooh did. Did they do anything i think. At this point he was too big to really edit and he's not like i don't think that he's difficult to work with like the way that he talks about writing in his own book about right in his books about writing and stuff like that like it makes. It seem like no. He's perfectly fine taking notes. But i feel like once you get to a certain level of like making people money. They just stop editing. You which is yeah so only the this book could have been half the length like if i was to you know. I bet if he had the chance to make it the quote unquote of itself. You cut it in half. He would start with them already. Leaving boston already leaving. Or whatever like cut out that whole part just have my inner flashbacks to it and stuff like that and like you know instead of it. Being the walk that was important. It'd be the stops. That are important. But i'm not sorry i read it again like a i. Don't mind that. I've read it twice and usually i don't like reading things if they don't while mesa fun. Fun activity yeah and there are definitely some books of his. That will probably go back and revisit. Like i mentioned i read the edited version of the stand. So i did buy the unedited. Basically and one day one day in the far future i will go back and visit that one. But you know. I've had a few that. I had read early on like years and years before i decided to do this. Podcast and early on. I made the mistake of not rereading the shining. Because i thought i had read it recent enough to remember the details and then i it's different. I'm sure edited this out. But i thought the twins were in the book. Because i had the movie in my head you edited out. It wasn't in the wasn't in the episode. That's funny because sorry conic rights in the movie. Yeah yeah and i was like wow. I am not kicking this off very well. If i check it details straight thankfully spend a little more smoother of a ride here. But i did end up. Rereading the girl. Who loved tom gordon. Another short one you know novella length and that was one. I had read early on same with the green mile. Because i think what happened was i saw some of these books and i was like. Oh those ones are short. I'll read those. Because i was in middle school high school. Whenever i read these way too early most likely as betty stephen king fans start out. What does it say about us though. All the people that i know there have read stephen king way. Too early era of a certain type like into a lot of the same stuff. I'm like what does it do to your brain surgeon. Stephen king before you're fully baked wonderful things if you ask me i mean. I don't know i agree. I agree but yeah basically..

"I thought that was just very interesting because then i guess a bunch of other authors started doing this too and it costs this woman. Twenty five thousand dollars to get her friend in the spoke. He's the he's the hero right like the guy that helps them blowed up but like we'll get there. We'll give sorry. Oh that's awesome that that's too expensive for that but that's really cute. I mean look if you're rich and you have the money go for it. Do your thing the opposite where comic book writers we put people in store. That's the secret will secretly snake people at delight books for free. Like maybe i should rethink my strategy. Here yeah men. Yeah now now. I need to figure it out. Maybe donate to charity to be my next book. I thought that was just a really fun to bit about this book. I tried to find those things and sometimes it's easier with the movies. Because you have little easter eggs to other stuff or people who appear in multiple stephen king adaptations or you have someone like mick garris who does eight hundred of them right. You have to have a through line. Yeah and you know what's fun about clayton's character is that he's a graphic artist and he is basically in town because he made this deal in the town being boston. So this doesn't necessarily take place in maine at the start. Which i think is always interesting for stephen king because we see in maine a lot and then you know colorado's a secondary location. I know some stuff has happened in florida which makes sense because he has. I guess his winter home is in florida so he doesn't have to live through the main winters anymore. Listen if you had that kind of money when you do that maybe not in florida but yes maybe not. Sure verita fair enough. Yeah there's a couple of places that that happen often feeling. Maybe boston is another one that he's done a couple times that i'm one hundred percent sure but yeah it is really interesting. They start a another bit. Clay the deal that he's making for his new for his original. Graphic novel is with our courts. Yeah find little thing. There i was like. Did you do that. Tell me your secrets like always smokes. Please help out now. it's it found. Like i connected with klay pretty early. Not just because he was the main character but just like he was just hustling so hard like and trying so hard to hold onto his art even when the world like collapses like i feel you man i feel you that. That's a lotta work. Yeah he's holding onto his art and he's also trying to hold onto hope that his family his son in particular johnny is still alive and he's separated from his wife. Sharon you know. They're kind of estranged but he's so adamant to get back to johnny that that and his art sort of drive him for this entire story. Yeah and i you know King of the really good job of kind of setting. Klay up for that to be believable. Sometimes you get like end of the world stories and you just like. I don't just stop just like what are you doing. Go do the thing that clearly makes sense but for clay like very early on he kind of sets up. Play is not just someone who who is obsessive at. He is obsessive and he kind of does that through the art but also someone who just has to go on faith like it's not a religious faith but like his entire career is based you know. He was doing speculative work that he wasn't being paid for on the hope that one day he will be paid for it and it came in between him and his wife like that was a thing in their marriage. That said like that's how much he can believe in something. That isn't actually in front of him. So light for him chasing down his son like the made total one hundred percents. Yeah and you have tom and alice who almost immediately team up with clay because wherever they are they all happen to be in the same lobby essentially and alice is looking for her mom or something but her mom's kind of already gone crazy so the premise is that there was this big pulse that went off and anyone who used their cell phone would almost immediately be homicide uil your or suicidal or right like how they describe it like an emp but for your brain so it gets wiped completely of everything except for the source apparently the sources absolutely being violent. Yeah interesting thesis for a book humanity at its core is violent and bad okay right and while you were reading. This text demeanor like this is his. I am legend. isn't it which one hundred. I haven't read. But i've watched the movies. I'm at least familiar with the premise. Part of me was like that but also kind of like the walking dead it is. It is very much like the walking dead. Although i think the walking dead os lots to i am legend. I think pretty much a lot of things like that of this genre time legend but it felt like that not to spoil a book that's decades old kind of get it but in the in the book more whatever happens to make people vampires. You're in the perspective of a human. Who sees them as monstrous and meet people. Whatever but what you discover is that he's been going out and killing them when he can like one by one and trying to figure out their weaknesses or whatever and what you realize is that like they actually have a whole society like they're completely rational beings like they're not just mine those monsters and to to them. He's the evil one because he's been murdering people who have not done anything to him. And so for as i was reading this i was like as soon as you get the lake. Jumping ahead a tiny bit to the diagonised which is really a hive. Mind devolved people who repulsed but in san cheated in a an they call the raggedy man like a black dude and a hoodie to him. They're just trying to live and then these quote unquote normal. People are going around killing them. So they're going to take revenge. And i'm like oh. This is like this. One hundred percent lake stephen king like just lifting the basic premise of i am legend and going. But what if. I stephen king it up and also technologies evil technology older than the radio was banned and i know when the book came out. He still didn't own a cell phone which is a little odd for someone of his stature. Society in general usually people who have money are the ones who get these things before everyone else and he seemed to be very against it but given that we now know how often he's on twitter. I feel like that might have changed by now. He writes the book and it's twitter. That's evil anyone who was on twitter which might be sympathetic to fair enough. This is like not wholly inaccurate. Be really interesting too because he has At one point he has the headmaster character. Talk about how computers are okay. They're not evil but he's always thought of cell. Phones is the devils was the devils radio or the devils walkie-talkie or i don't remember it was something clever. I'm not as clever. Stephen king and i was like. Oh okay. so you're justify your use of a computer to write this but cellphones..

"But there's a lot of stuff like they talk about cutting off. I looked at it because I thought that was bizarre, and I'd never heard of it before. As far as I can tell, that's not a thing. Cows don't have eight Dr Not Bristling with others, and they dislike fucking lop the ones that are not useful off. why is this? Is I. Don't know something. Is! Is that part of the DYSTOPIA I? That's what I'm saying like I thought this was foreshadowing for like whatever horrible fate is going to you know. Meet her at the end of the film, but it never came up. There's a lot of stuff like you know bill. Bulletin Board saying like you know? Not. Taking fertility tests is punishable by Blob, lots of crime and You know harboring imigrants is capital crime.

Bloated speaking of things that I thought were going to go somewhere. I thought Brigham mean something. He hurts his feet several times in this movie. They show one shower. He steps out into mud in his socks or something. Then they show, it's very very die. Hard, they they show him injured his foot and eat screams falker whatever? Somebody hands him a pair of shoes later on and I. Don't know what they were even trying to do with that. If that's just like, oh, we need this to feel authentic and somebody running through all this rubble would probably hurt their feet i. think it's beds is back to the thing you don't WanNa. Talk about which is the Jesus allegory? Like? There's lots of foot washing in the Bible associated Jesus amongst his disciples and apostles. It's religious. I think that's something they do in Islam before they go to their prayers, they richly washed her hands and feet and their heads. And then when he the only pair of shoes you could find were like sandals. I thought that was another key piece of Christ imagery. The guys named Theo. You know. You've got a lot and didn't didn't key joke that she was virgin. Like they actually haven't explicit like you know and there's something to. Joseph and Mary trying to escape with the savior. I guess it wasn't war-torn Rome, but it was. It was You Know Roman Judea..
