Owners will get notification letters starting June 30th. The company says it's not aware of any injuries. I'm Rita foley

Whistleblower Steve Friend Reveals How the FBI Has Been Weaponized
"Tell us your story. Well, I've lived a few years in the last 6 or 7 months, but I'll try to invest by some of them as quickly as I can for you. I was with the FBI in 2014 until February of this year. I spent my first 7 years working on Indian reservations in the Midwest. And then in 2021, relocated my family to Florida with the understanding I was going to be working child pornography cases. But after a few months, I was reassigned to work domestic terrorism with the understanding that that was mostly going to be January 6 cases. And that is when I had my first exposure to how the FBI's departing very greatly from its rules for caring for investigations, I had a couple of other alarming experiences that were associated with January 6th, and it ultimately led me to decide to come forward to my supervisor, my frontline supervisor, and make some protected whistleblower disclosures about my concerns about the rule departures and that the heavy handed tactics that the FBI is using. And that then started a process by which I went up the chain of command and expressing my concerns at every level, but was rebuffed, told throughout that process that I was jeopardizing my career that my duty was to the FBI and not the constitution, not the oath that I took. And the accommodated with my suspension unpaid last year in September. For a 150 days, I was unpaid. I had my medical information leaked to The New York Times. I had an improper gag order placed on me by the FBI's inspection division. I was accused of inciting violence. And denied the ability to seek outside employment because although I was unpaid, I was still technically considered an FBI employee. I sought outside employment, was offered an opportunity with the center for renewing America, rust votes, crew up in D.C.. They offered me a fellowship, the FBI denied that and tried to deny me of an income. And at the end, I resigned just before testifying in a transcribed interview for the weaponization committee. And we'll have the opportunity to actually speak publicly this week on Thursday for the weaponization.

The Left's Progressive Policies Disproportionately Hurt Minorities
"To finish the reparations piece in The Wall Street Journal, the states de facto decriminalization of drug use, and shoplifting in 2014 has led to increased crime, especially in minority neighborhoods. The state's war on fossil fuels is killing good paying working class jobs and raising energy prices. But these are progressive policies that increase racial and income disparities. So they're off the reparations list. The damage done to blacks by the left. Is. One of the great secrets kept from most Americans.

Israel kills another militant commander in Gaza as Cairo presses on with efforts to mediate truce
"Israeli aircraft destroyed three houses apparently belonging to members of Islamic shahad in northern and southern Gaza, claims which have been rejected by those who lived in the properties. Children gathered by the rubble of the destroyed building in the enclave's southern city of Khan yunis. It belonged to un Jihad Al ara, where she said she lived with her disabled husband and children. In 2014, they hit the house and burnt it with shells, but we repaired it because we didn't have another house. Now they destroyed it again. Another air strike at a sprawling housing complex in Khan yunis destroyed the upper floor of one of the buildings, where Israel said a senior commander was killed along with two others. The air strike caused damage to three surrounding buildings. Residents Abdullah Hamad described an abnormal light in two explosions, and then finding his children crying in shock. When I reached them, I found them covering themselves with bed covers and screaming out of fear. Meanwhile, rocket fire towards southern Israel continued, even as Egypt pressed on with attempts to broker a ceasefire. I am Karen Chammas

Enterprise Blockchain Consortium Led by Digital Asset and Big Players
"Going to talk about some enterprise blockchain stuff. Digital asset, which in my opinion is one of the more poorly named companies in the space is leading a consortium with Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, and others to make interoperable private blockchains for the institutional sector a thing. Enterprise blockchain is back. Maybe it never went away, but it's a bit different now. And this speaks to the difference that we find ourselves here in 2023, relative to when we found ourselves in 2019 back when some of these initial ideas were floated. This one, I think you're seeing a lot of the interoperability conversation take place as you look to stitch together all these various institutional blockchains that are doing stuff over there in enterprise land. I'm going to toss this to will. Maybe it has a spicy take. I don't know, is this new news? Is this old news? Is this exciting? Is this a rehash? What we saw last time around? What's your thoughts? Certainly not exciting. And to your point, yes, one of the worst named companies in the space. And possible to find anything about these guys. But they are very good at getting money. I will say, looking at their team, they've been around since 2014. And the most recent fundraising series I could find. Again, this could be incorrect because it was super hard to Google anything about digital assets. The series D, they raised a $120 million back in 2022. That's a lot of money for someone who seemingly has to put out a lot of products. And that's a lot of these enterprise blockchain products. We work with a lot of high profile names. We raise big rounds and some people use us out there in the ether to move money back and forth between bakes, maybe take our word on it. That's mostly what we've seen to date. I think there has been some stuff from my Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan, about their quorum chain, and how they're using this Ethereum fork of sorts to move stablecoins back and forth themselves instead of using their own bank network they use a blockchain based bank network, but a lot of the stuff is this Hamilton mold, but it's put out some sort of enterprise blockchain solution, which slaps the money on top of it and call it a day.
Who Controls Bitcoin Core? By Jameson Lopp
"Who controls Bitcoin core? By jamison lop. Understanding how the focal point of Bitcoin development operates. The question of who controls the ability to merge code changes into Bitcoin cores at GitHub repository, tends to come up on a recurring basis. This has been cited as a quote central point of control of the Bitcoin protocol. By various parties over the years, but I argue that the question itself is a red herring that stems from an authoritarian perspective. This model does not apply to Bitcoin. It certainly is not obvious to alignment as to why that is the case. Thus, the goal of this article is to explain how Bitcoin core operates and at a higher level how the Bitcoin protocol itself evolves. The history of Bitcoin core Bitcoin core is a focal point for development of the Bitcoin protocol, rather than a point of command and control. If it ceased to exist for any reason, a new focal point would emerge. The technical communications platform upon which it's based currently the GitHub repository is a matter of convenience rather than one of definition or project integrity. In fact, we already have seen Bitcoin's focal point for development change platforms and even names. In early 2009, the source code for the Bitcoin project was simply a dot roller file hosted on source forge. Early developers would actually exchange code patches with satoshi via email. On October 30th, 2009, Sirius, or Marty Molly, created a subversion repository for the Bitcoin project on SourceForge. In 2011, the Bitcoin project migrated from SourceForge to GitHub. In 2014, the Bitcoin project was renamed to Bitcoin core.
The Institutions Are Coming Back to Crypto
"Let's start with a little bit of the history of this idea of an institutional narrative in crypto or Bitcoin. You can see the earliest embers of it all the way back in 2013, 2014 when the winklevosses started to think about and then apply for Bitcoin spot ETFs. There has been a sense for coming up on a decade now that a big part of the future of Bitcoin and crypto in general was these big institutional players getting involved. Crypto would reshape traditional finance from the inside out, right? Certainly after the ICO boom, it was definitely a big part of what was supposed to get us out of crypto winter. I still remember how big people treated the news of backed launching. Do you guys even remember this firm BA KKT? It was owned by the same company that owned the New York Stock Exchange. It had heavy hitters involved, and of course it did not guess out of the crypto winter of 2018 and 2019. However, in 2020, the thing actually really started to happen. This institutions are coming narrative wasn't wrong for basically the first time ever. of that. The first was that there was a new narrative that really hit with the hedge funds. And that, of course, was Paul Tudor Jones great monetary inflation thesis. He wrote that paper in May of 2020 as the COVID shutdowns were happening and huge amounts of fiscal stimulus was coming directly to citizens, and that paper if you'll remember was all about the ways that one might hedge against an inflationary monetary period. Of course, there was gold, but PTG had been surprised to find with his team that they actually really liked Bitcoin in that situation as well. Thus he announced an allocation. A couple months later, you started to have folks like Stanley druckenmiller singing the same tune. It's one thing when one really smart hedge funder is interested in something. It's another when it becomes a trend.

Bridget Ziegler: Getting Involved With Local School Boards
"You left the professional career, you became involved in the local school board race. Why would you be crazy enough to do that, Bridget, obviously, I'm joking. That's not crazy, but please tell us. Please tell or maybe it is. You tell us why. Why did you do it? No, I have three young daughters, and, you know, I got on the school board in 2014 when my oldest was only 8 months old. I have a background in risk consulting, as you mentioned. And I did that for over a decade. But as I've seen particularly in the last four years, really saw a progression of very radical left leaning agendas being pushed into our public education institutions. And it's being pushed through by special interest groups. I think it's a very important distinction for your listeners and everyone in the country to understand that a lot of times it's being misunderstood that it's teachers. There may be a handful of bad actors that are teachers, but that's not where this is coming from. It truly is coming from the top big money education industrial complex as I talk as I reference frequently. And it's special interest groups like the Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood. I mean, very extreme, less leaning organizations that are finding their way into that. So I'm concerned about the direction of our country and the future for our children. And so I went all in. I've learned a lot as a school board member. I've had a front row seat and my goal is to train tens of thousands of activists, candidates and get them to win so that we can redirect course.

Joe Allen Describes Why Elon Musk Thinks A.I. Is So Risky
"So Joe, we see, let me read a quote here from Elon Musk. He says AI is one of the biggest risks to civilization. Why does he believe that? Primarily, Charlie, he believes that because of the work of Nick bostrom who is an Oxford philosopher transhumanist cofounder of the world transhumanist association and Nick bostrom published a book in 2014 called super intelligence. And super intelligence basically lays out all of the different paths that an artificial intelligence system or series of systems could make to superhuman intelligence and then how those systems could destroy all of humanity or at least some significant portion of it. So Musk has been has taken this up really since 2014 is when you really start hearing him speak out about this, mainly because of that book. And Nick bostrom incidentally is also it was also very much influenced by Elise. It was at the machine intelligence research institute and is the one who really has stirred up all of this controversy about whether or not artificial intelligence poses an existential threat because of an especially because of a Time Magazine op-ed that he published around the same time that Elon Musk and company signed their open letter for an AI moratorium. Argued not that AI is a danger or some distant existential risk, maybe in the future he just flat out says if these systems are allowed to get above where they're at now and maybe if they're allowed to remain where they're at now, they will inevitably kill us.

"Watches me again. I think that's the of disavowed. Lay it unless it's like a movie that that affects you so much that you might not watch it again. There's not many that have made this about this. We're talking like men in two to black. International one of our dinosaurs is missing remote williams. No remove williams didn't make it on. But the harry palmer. Tv movies did and taken to. I think that's it though. Not many movies okay. I think both moves belong in the disavowed lists like you're looking for what l. Like you could maybe make a case for take into at least having spycraft you know to some extent no matter how moronic it is. This movie has nothing. Like i literally nothing from this movie okay. Your rallying for it to be disavowed camp. Like yes or no should be disavowed. I'll tell you my biggest struggle is actually. I think i would prefer to watch if forced kind of status would do this to me but would force me to choose between this or men in black international to watch again. I would watch men in black international again over this. Wow so i'm kind of. I'm kind of leaning towards. I think it has to like i. Just don't think this is a big enough difference from taken to if taken to makes the list and this one. I hate what it does to. You know the lenore character. I don't like what it does to the maggie grace character inside linear. Like what does it do better. Like what is the improvement in terms of the characters like nothing. So what am i. What am i going to bat for at the end of the day. I guess that's what i'm struggling with more. So even though. I do find this one a little more watchable than to just. Because of probably the forest whittaker performance don harvey work like there's bits and pieces but it's long kind of goes nowhere. The action is incompetent. Like i can justify saying disavowed. The only thing that's worthwhile this movie is to look at it. As a curio of like what went wrong with action in the two thousands and shift from john wick. It's interesting to look at. Like the impact of john wick and then like the last breath of the taken chads. Yeah i wouldn't hold onto it for that. That's not enough. Exactly yeah i i mean i'm talking about the impact gut. Movies had not more of this so it should certainly been the disavowed list. In my opinion having heard of your opinions on this. I'm gonna make a judgment because i think with disavow has to being chemist to sign off on it. It's a it's a damning indictment on any film films we disavow it so it has to be a double yes. I think this yogurt paul has gone off. I'm going to put it back in the fridge. It is disgusting. And i will not drink it now. Yes so very happy. I'm going to disavow it. It's it's not great unfortunately guys. I couldn't recommend anyone watch this okay. And we are wrapping up the ticket franchise so i mean rankings. I'm guessing nathan your one-two-three enough. Yeah i think probably one and then a few spaces in three two well. If we're talking about spaces put eight between two. Yeah like that's the thing is like for me Two and three. Do not even belong in the same ballpark as the first one. But i think i would probably give a slight edge to the third one but not by much i think for me. It's one then my imaginary taken for sequel Which is kind of ripping off the magnificent seven in a away. And then i'm gonna put three by amal in and then yeah but they liked daylight on day. I could flip two and three. I think having watched three. I probably have more recently bias..
"2014" Discussed on SpyHards Podcast
"If we can swear on this podcast and i know have certainly done it. You you've done like twenty miles now. Explicit is supposed to be. It's supposed to be visceral that style. You feel like you of the action. I completely get that but this fourteen cuts for jumping over a fence. Which is the exact number. I know it's a main but that is a twelve too many and it completely removed you from the film completely removed from it. You just know you're watching someone who's not very good at directing. Yeah it's like he doesn't know how to stage the action so the editor has to work with what they have and they're cutting it really fast. It feels like to disguise these things. It's just looks awful. And i mean there's a car chase in this that i think megaton said was the most challenging aspect of the whole movie to shoot. Was this big freeway chase. Where you have like a container truck flipping over and things like that. And i'm like once again. It looks impressive. In terms of the fact they flipped a truck but like the geography of the chase is a nightmare. You have no idea where one cars in relation to the other and see. You're kind of watching things happen. It doesn't feel like it's propulsion so again it's like a guy who's not good action. I don't like the thing is olivia megaton. I'm sure is very talented. Visually he would have to be like maybe he needs to be making art films or something but like action is clearly not his thing. I just think it doesn't interest him at all. Probably not i think don't think of truck flips. I just think of the night. It's basically a one shot. You see that truck sleep over. The camera holds on it more or less. I think you get one or two cuts but that whole accuracy joe talking about cam it's relentlessly cutting around it and i lost it by that point. I watched this film twice. Rug alled to pay attention to even the second time. When that container truck starts flipping it actually looks like it's flipping by itself because you can't really make sense of other cars hitting it or anything. It looks like this truck is just doing roles in place. It's very strange so eager listeners. Since this is such a big discussion. I think that the later two films and should be something that you get some married out of a you should find some insight over talking about otherwise. What was this all about. Except for to make your worship better but take a look at the honestly i would say any chase by michael bay but primarily the bad boys two freeway chase which i would say is one of the best car chases of all time at least top five. It stays away.

"A conversation that is not held often enough and never with enough sincerity or gravity. But we also know that you know. What kind of content drives clicks right if you write about cybersecurity. You're gonna get a fraction of the number of clicks that you're gonna get if you wrote about how certain male executives were making way more money than their female counterparts for example ultimately media is a business. So you kind of see where that's going to go right. It's no surprise that media companies are going to really focus on the stuff that drives traffic. Because ultimately that's what drives revenue. Sony leadership went into damage. Control with sony chiefs amy. Pascal and michael lynton sending out a memo urging patience and understanding among sony employees. Saying you know calm chill out. It'll be okay. And the two stated that the hackers had taken a large amount of information and that it was pretty safe to assume that any information about the employees themselves could have been a part of all that and that. If sony had information about you as an employee there was a really good chance that the hackers had info at this point. So i think this was a clear effort to get ahead of problems like people finding out how much they were paid compared to their peers. Which definitely promote some uncomfortable discussions if it were to turn out that salaries weren't equitable across the board. Also to kind of alert in plays like. Hey you might have to pay very special attention to things like your credit report now because your personal information including stuff like social security numbers is now in the hands of hackers who are making it freely available. So you end. If the hackers don't do anything with your data they're making it freely available for other cybercriminals to make use of that data by december third another dump caught headlines and this data dump included stuff like scans of visas and passports of people who are working on various sony films so even more personal information this also included some notable celebrities like angelina jolie there were also documents that include the user names passwords for the accounts of several sony executives but one thing that got wide circulation was a collection of sony. Employees takes on the works of a. Mr adam sandler turns out a lot of sony. Employees have a low opinion of adam sandlers art and it was stories like these that received far more media coverage than the actual attacks. Because again juicy right watching. Hollywood eat its own is something that the media thought was very entertaining and drive a lot of engagement then again. You could argue that. There wasn't a whole lot. You could say about the attacks other than you know. They had happened while some people had been circulating the theory that it was north korea behind it all even in the early stages there were there. Were no smoking guns that you could point to rather there was a suspicion because of the timing along with the upcoming release of the film the interview and the reaction of north korea's media to the idea of the film the interview so ball people were mentioning north korea. There wasn't any definitive evidence yet. To kinda lean on in fact on december third sony issued a statement that said a report that north korea was behind the attack was not accurate on december fifth someone claiming to be the guardians of peace sent a threatening message to sony employees and on the eighth someone claiming to be that same group posted a message on a file sharing site that said sony to quote.

"Sony's security wasn't really up to code now. I tried to track down more information about this february. Two thousand fourteen hack and came up empty. It's possible that this was something that sony just tried to contain completely internally and it just never went beyond those internal emails at any rate it is very challenging to search for anything related to sony and hacking that happened in two thousand fourteen. The doesn't relate to the more notorious event that happened in november. However there's one thing. I do have to talk about that happened between february and november of twenty fourteen. That does play into the story. And that's the interview. The interview is a film. It's a comedy. That was developed by seth rogan and evan goldberg about a tv journalist and his producer getting a gig to come to north korea and interview the country's leader kim jong un only they are intercepted by members of the cia. Who wants to. Use this rare opportunity to assassinate kim jong eun turning the vacuous hollywood types into state backed assassins. Seth rogan james. Franco played the producer and the tv host respectively. Randall park aka agent. Jimmy woo in the mc. You played kim jong eun. The film went into production in two thousand thirteen with sony. Pictures behind it and the release date was set for october of two thousand fourteen. So in the summer of two thousand fourteen when the movie's publicity was starting to get off the ground. That's when there were rumblings. From north korea. The media north korea condemned the film months before it was set to premiere calling for sony to not release it and even to just destroy the movie and that the release of the movie would be considered an act of terrorism and war. Now on the one hand the interviews are pretty dumb movie. It's it's not a hard hitting thriller. It doesn't say anything particularly insightful. About north korea or kim jong but on the other hand. It's pretty darn taboo to make a fictional film about a planned assassination of a real world person who is very much still alive. I mean it has been done but it's a tricky thing to do. I honestly i think if someone were to make a movie about trying to assassinate me. I take it a little personally. Sony pushed back the release of the film from october. To december two thousand fourteen the idea being of releasing on christmas day and they also made some changes to the movie. Now whether these changes were meant as concessions to north korea or not. i don't know but there's a pretty solid story of the company. Easing back on the death scene of kim jong a spoiler alert. He does die in the movie. He gets blown the smithereens when his helicopter is hit with a shot from a franco driven tank and apparently in the version that they the filmmakers originally created that does scene was far more graphic than it is in the finished film well. North korean media was pushing rhetoric. That suggested that release of the film would lead to disastrous consequences and sony push-back back the date but still plan to release the film and then in november. The other shoe dropped or at least it appeared to. I'll explain more.

"Out of one thousand five hundred fifty five servers so more than half of their servers had to be replaced this is all according to a vanity fair article titled the untold story of the sony. Hack by richard stingl At the time of the hack single is actually working for the. Us secretary of state and had direct connection as he was friends with the The then ceo of sony pictures. According to sony itself as reported by computer world the hack represented a thirty five million dollar cost in. It repairs. That was the figure quoted for quote restoring our financial. And it systems into quote according to a sony spokesperson. And that actually sounds low to me. And of course there were other monetary damages as well due to how the hackers would release much of that stolen information online. And then there's the damage to sony's reputation a rep. That already had more than a little tarnish on it before the hack even happened. Meanwhile the details of the attack included links that the hackers left behind two sites that showed off some of the data they had taken so this was more of like a a directory of what was stolen with the actual data itself to follow in the weeks to come as it would turn out the hackers who had infiltrated the system had been hard at work inside. Sony's cyber walls for at least a few weeks at the point where they left this message and some accounts suggest that the initial intrusion might have happened even more than a year in advance because of just the enormous amount of information that got siphoned away. But either way this was not some sort of hasty message that was set immediately after the hackers got access to the system. Now the hackers had clearly already copied a vast amount of information which again depending on the account ranged anywhere from forty gigabytes to around one hundred.

Welcome to textile production from iheartradio. He there and welcome to text. I'm your host. Jonathan strickland. I'm an executive producer with iheart radio and a love all things tech and for today's show i thought i would cover kind of an infamous thing that happened in tech a few years ago so in two thousand fourteen. Hackers infiltrated the computer systems of sony pictures and they stole an enormous amount of data at this was one of the highest profile incidents of hacking in that decade. And it involves everything from political posturing to the studio of sony waffling over whether or not it was actually going to release a movie so i thought we could revisit that story kind of walk through to see what we know about it and what we suspect or maybe it might be more accurate to say you know what is the official stance of the fbi. And what do other people think and also what has happened since including the people accused of being behind the attack. Also stand accused of other cybercrimes. And i should point that early on a lot of these details Around the hack. I mean even now they still remain unknown or at least if they are known the folks who who know it are kind of keeping it to themselves and you know there's a lot of speculation out there with conflicting accounts as to win. Things got started. Why the hack happened. And who is behind the whole ding. Ding darn thing. There's even a suspect whom an entire country insists does not actually exist so it's a legit mystery including conspiracy theories and enormous consequences.

"Death in take say a. You know supernatural turner. That's literally the end of this book. It literally districts into an adaptation of that story at the end. Yeah let's dive into that a little. Because we mentioned astronaut earlier and how she comes back and sh- to round that off she has cancer and basically charles is blackmailing jamie to have him come work with him to save her and then it turns into this whole thing with mary fe at the end and the dead people go to the null and it's kind of love crafty in and you have dead. People being enslaved for eternity by these love crafting beings. And how did this go somewhere. I was not totally expect. And it's like i literally cannot think of a more oppressively bleak ending to a book which is finding out that everybody. The people are enslaved. They're not even worker ants. They're literally working for the answer. There under the hints in this hellscape in service to these this kind of other other dimensions like unknown entity and this is the fate that awaits everyone. It's so wild. I was like wow after they tap into that then it gets even worse because that's kind of an awakening about everybody that's been in connection with this kind of you know the secret electrcity which we now knows like other dimensional energy and so after that point not only does jamie to live with the fact that you know. He's obviously going to go to this other worldly hell when he dies everybody. He knows everybody he meets on the street. Everybody everywhere is going there they die but how every single person you know after he kind of sees it through to the end with was charlie every single person. He thought he had helped up to that point in the book. Winds up suffering. That is just like the knife in the back. And i think weirdly the thing that makes it worse if it can get worse that charles dies like he dies before he has to live with the knowledge even though he knew that it happened in some cases which he passed off as kind of a statistical anomaly the now every single person he quote unquote healed commits murder or suicide or the some kind of extreme lapse after the fact and he doesn't have to live with the knowledge of that but but jamie does yan in some cases. It's both you know. Astro kills her partner and self and you really see. Just how wrong. Everything went very quickly in this book too. I might add because you don't really see this and coming in particular and as soon as you get to jamie showing up to try and save astroid and all of this stuff. It really feels like everything. Just ramps up so quickly with this book and then it's over by the time you you know look up next. Yeah so many king stories even the horror stuff even things like it even like dark you know world ending fantasy like the stand so many of them have an almost kind of saccharin optimism. At the end you can always feels that came tries to find that silver lining. That things are gonna be okay. Getting the best he can do here is to suggest that Navy jamie's vision was false when we know and jamie knows certainly made clear in the last line. The jamie's fully aware that that is not true. This is such a brutal ending and look. I don't need stephen king books. To have these happy endings. He's done things like with christine. For example where in the epilogue you know. The car isn't really gone. And you know he does those sorts of things quite often with his books and you know his endings are always up for debate. I don't have a problem with this one. I don't think it went on too long or anything like that. I'm of the opinion that i think pet cemetery might be his best ending for ever. But that's just my opinion. And i think even though i didn't love revival i see why a lot of people who have read it do enjoy it but i also understand why people might not enjoy this one. Yeah it gets rough. It indicates honestly kinda mean and. It's you know weird and a ways. It's never fun. But that i find really really interesting and it's like a i think it's kind of comes down to short stories. I think like you said you're like you're not as keen allows short stories. I i really am. And i feel like people that love the short stories. Kind kinda tend to love this book because it is very in tune with them. Yeah i totally get that and you know all say that. I've actually enjoyed his novella collections. A lot more than the short story collections. And you know. I think that's just because those kind of have a clearer theme to them for the most part in the collections themselves. And i think what i'm going to end up doing is maybe revisiting some short stories here and there and not read an entire collection at once and that might change my opinion of them a bit. Just because i'm not thinking of it as like a collected whole and with revival. One other thing i want to talk about before we talk about ratings and start wrapping things. Up is jamie's relationship with his family because we see him go back to the house. He sees his brother. We find out that his sister was murdered by her husband. Yes that oh my god. That's just another kind of knife in the heart of this book. Because she is she's the she's made clear from the beginning to be like the person most in his corner and then she's got and he kind of broadcasted in a very stephen king way of saying like you know something's going to happen to her offhandedly long before we find out what happens but it..

"Has it is that. I think is not usually the case especially with a lot of a lot of stephen king stuff especially with the tv stuff. I would say to just because of the limitations of what you can and can't oftentimes. There are definitely graphic scenes. In stephen king novels. And you know. We've seen over the years with kerry how you have theatrical releases verses a tv version that came out in two thousand and two and it's just like a totally different mood almost because of those limitations that you have and you know i know what the state of lifetime is at the moment and what they're allowing on air because it seems like lifetime is kind of one of those channels that is in limbo because they don't have a streaming service really kind of trying to revamp things to appeal to either a different audience or you know just kind of shift like you said earlier how the men were the villains and now the women are kind of like the villains in some of their movies and i thought it was interesting though. I'd probably give this gave it a three out of five. So i mean we. We talked about that Off the record. So i will stay at somebody who is a you. Know up with lifetime movies in pop culture When i was growing up you know in in the nineties and stuff lifetime movies were always it. Was you know crazy. Stepdad's crazy boyfriends. And in recent years it has become more about like crazy babysitters psycho prom queens and stuff like that and women have played villain so for in all honesty with big driver. It's kind of more of a return to form for lifetime for making an unrepentant male villain But yes i don't know like i. I can certainly say that. By adapting a stephen king story and by putting stephen king's name prominently you know on the marketing and with the cast that they were able to get. I have to believe that this was pitched as as a more of a prestige production for lifetime than maybe some of their other movies that they wanted to be like. Look we got these like notable name actors. It's it's an adaptation from stephen king. This is this is. We're trying we're trying to you know show that we're not just making tv of the week. You know soap soap operas. Drama stuff Soap opera thrillers. It's like this and maybe that's part of the reason why they did this story and we're doing something that's that's real serious. This is serious and dark and everything And yeah i mean. I gave it a three out of five as well. I obviously considering the content of it it is going to be. It's going to be a no go area for some people. Some people are just not gonna watch it on principle. And that's okay like it's totally understandable. Why they wouldn't And for the ones that do. I think you're gonna end up with. I think of a a well executed but fundamentally flawed story right. And i think this one flew under the radar but too because there are actually three things in a row here with a good marriage mercy and big driver that i had no clue even existed and you know a good marriage was also included in full dark no stars but these three. You know movies and tv movie here. It's just one of those things where because of the fact that you know they either were direct to video or they just didn't have as much of a budget behind them. Even though i thought the cast were you know relatively good for all of them. I just had no idea they existed. And i feel like there have been so many stephen king adaptations like that over the years in particular ones that you and i have discussed. Oh for sure. Well and to be fair i think this is. This is just before. The reason king renaissance in pop culture. Like he's always been there. They've always been making adaptations. But this is before you know new lines it chapter one came out and that just absolutely you know any stephen king project that anybody had On the shelf immediately got green lit after that movie. And you know they've been making tons of stuff since then and I would even argue that eleven twenty to sixty three on. Who was kind of the start of a few more things getting greenland and not everything is great after this by any means you know we have the tv show and the dark tower movie which i know a lot of people don't like either of those things and then you have you know some stuff. That's kind of very mixed like the pet cemetery. Remake it chapter two but yeah. There's a huge amount of adaptations coming up here in comparison to book output. Yeah i it's interesting. I mean. I think now we're going to start anything big driver but in relation. I think we're going to enter another period of this where it's the downswing of king renaissance where it's like all right. They make a couple movies. They're they're prominent. You know they get received well and then a bunch of other stuff comes out that is either you know discarded or or not really given any attention and it slides back into that and then there'll be another big you know they'll they'll remake something Notable and it will be received really well and then it'll kick off another one like the these things coming cycles and this big driver. I think interestingly was probably during a down period of that cycle but in some ways maybe because of the cast that they were able to assemble It gave it a little bit more profile. Bumped it up a little bit. So it's i can't say it's it's a movie worth totally dismissing but it's also a movie that's extremely difficult to recommend not just because of the.

"Hey everyone chat cemetery is back. I'm your host. The anna chapman. And i am joined today by drew each. We are talking all about the twenty fourteen movie big driver. This is a lifetime tv movie actually and before we dive in. I just want to give a content warning here. This story does dive into a rape revenge story so if for any reason you do not want to listen or watch this movie. I don't blame you go ahead and turn it off here but drew. How're you doing today. I'm doing well and Know to spoil some of the behind the scenes workings of chat cemetery. I was not actually slated to to do this episode. But i kind of jumped in and part of the reason i did was because i had no idea this movie existed. I have not read the novella. The story That this comes from from a full dark. No stars and i had no idea that a lifetime movie had been made from a stephen king story adding onto that is that it's a lifetime movie that stars people like maria bello olympia. Dukakis and dow jones. Jet has a supporting part in this. It was immediately very interesting to me all of these factors and then as as horrific as it might sound. What also intrigued. Me was the fact that i looked up. What the synopsis of the story was. And this is to my knowledge and obviously you. You would be the expert in this pairing here to my knowledge. this is the only kind of straightforward rape revenge. Story that stephen king is done or at the very least that they've made a movie out of yeah. There have been stories where people have either had abusive husbands or abusive fathers. And things like that but none of them have really been a rape story in this sense where the victim takes control and gets her revenge. You know the closest thing i can think of really is rose matter you know. She has an abusive husband and he beats on her and things like that and then he gets. What's coming to him in the end. But it's a different tone. I think a little compared to this and this was one of the stories in full dark. No stars honestly quite a few stories in that. Were a little tough to read just because of the content in them. And i think this one kind of reflects that the most just because of the fact that they don't shy away from showing how brutal the rape is and the adaptation. No i mean obviously it is It is confined by the parameters of being a television movie. But the this came out in twenty fourteen. And it's it's living in a post walking dead world and the walking dead did a lot for Lapsing restrictions on what kind of contents Especially in regards to violence Could be seen on cable television. And yeah i mean i mean big driver. It's it's it's just. It's the core of the story and so it's impossible to skirt around it or anything and what. What intrigued me when you asked if i could if i could do this episode you know other than the many other things i mentioned. Is that the idea of stephen king. Doing a rape revenge story in the mold of what is really kind of almost an outdated approach to this sub genre the the rape revenge. Sub-genre is very prevalent in film. You know there. There's notorious examples. Like i spit on your grave. Miss forty five able for rs. Movie is actually a fairly good one but they are all intense. They are all dark. They are all difficult subject matter and that certainly here in big driver and as someone who is not read the story i was watching it and i was like i feel like this is probably a pretty faithful adaptation because as a rape revenge story it's fairly straightforward it. Is you know the maria. Bello playing this author tests thorne who writes a bunch of parlor room mysteries and She's going to a book signing and the person that runs the book signing tells her shortcut to the to avoid the highway On the way back on through that shortcut is how she ends up meeting her assaulter and then afterwards she she at first decides to conceal the fact that the assault happened to her. And she's going to figure you know she's going to find out who this person was and enact revenge yourself and it's like you know if this wasn't a stephen king story if this was just some exploitation movie from nineteen seventy eight that doing this story i'd be like yeah that's pretty straightforward the approach to the assault and everything is is horrific as it should be. There's nothing you know titillating about it. Which would be the case if this was made in nineteen seventy eight and all that's like okay straightforward. It's not super inventive in in the sub genre. But okay it's got good actors. Doing it. And stephen king obviously knows how to structure a story and create compelling characters but the thing that i think really turns this into a something that i don't even know if i can qualify as a binary good or bad decision. It's just weird. Is all of the stephen king. 'isms that start to seep into the story for for example of course the lead characters an author. That's no big surprise there but the thing that starts getting weird and and we talked about this too. Because i wanted to know what went on in the story. This does happen in. The story is that she decides to kind of figure out who this person is herself. And along the way it's it's revealed that she is talking to different imaginary figures in her life one is her gps called. Tom and tom starts speaking even before her assault with weird when she drives up to this She runs over some boards..

"This is the way they were doing. Okay so but. I haven't really seen anything that i liked so i was like. I was giving it a chance. I really wasn't like erico. Hate these movies. But i'm going to give a chance. 'cause don saw something in this movie i know i did so. It was like okay but i will get to. And then when he got to the bathroom scene. I'm like what the fuck my i know. Sorry man i'm like that took me right out of the movie but i knew that was on purpose. I'm like okay. Maybe there was a payoff and there wasn't he saw a lot of it was just this cookie demented guy that was just stocking filmmakers. I guess yeah. And i was just like okay. Well was it that the whole movie. That's the whole movie so you don't think there was there any saving this. You couldn't do anything with and not in my eyes. no you can add anything to it. You couldn't rework it. I just don't like the movie. But what about the idea. What about the idea of somebody idea. It's so simple. It's a simple idea like okay. I've heard it before. Okay you know. A filmmaker or person is going to go to somebody's house at demented right. But they don't always life right. Well no. I figured that out right from the beginning when i got to give you hook it was like okay. I see one hug cool. But that's kind weird right and then you kept going in for hugs. And i'm like so. That's when i went the guy's got to be gay. Unlike maybe likes it okay. all right. maybe. I wasn't seeing something. Then he goes into the bathtub scene. And i'm like i seriously would been outta there. I'm i i don't care i don't care what the client gave me. I don't care dollars back. And you'd say if i'm dying i he gave me a million dollars. I would have said look. This is very uncomfortable. I can't do this get somebody else. I'm sorry for wasting your time. Goodbye catch. there's nothing you could say to get me back because this is just way too weird. I can't be house and you're pulling your pants down and sitting in fucking bat up talking about some imaginary child right. I mean. I wouldn't even got to that part as soon as you started thinking. His pants like dude here. Here's your money. i'm sorry. I'm not for you. Yeah and sorry you know okay. I can't do it. I don't even know who does. Not no i can't i just don't feel uncomfortable but then you don't have a movie. We don't have that why you're saying you really couldn't rework it. You couldn't. i guess my question is would be. Would there have been something that could have happened. That would have made it more realistic for him to stay in your eyes. I i don't know i. It just got too weird right away. Maybe if got weird. It may be progressively got weird but that seemed over to top it. I okay maybe you do. Maybe you progressively get more weird and more weird till he gets in the situation that he can't get out of he could very easily got out of there. You know. i didn't see him. I see the only part is like masking is blocking the door. And he took his the guy's not that big of a guy. Obviously you know. He didn't have any weapons on them. Any weapon car because he took his keys away so ran down a fucking hill. And you just wonder why we got the hell out of there. I'm sorry let's see what you're saying. Okay so maybe he if he would've trapped him there another way. That would work better. It just didn't seem like in all. And i guess this was kinda deliberately done was that you know even know what the guy was capable of. It could tell that he was capable of something. Harmful for guy was just playing games with them because the guy stupid any. If the guy had any sense to him he would have been out of here a long time ago. Or why is he calling his sister instead of the fucking police and then when he comes to police he's not prepared to talk to. The police doesn't know who the guy is. i'd been. I'm very a lot of client and i would at least have their name nadu's even though that was a rental place i went ahead full name even. Maybe that was fake. But that's the other thing. No you don't know. It was just like i can talk. I i you know i would have said this guy is weird and then when i got the third one were supposed to meet him and went to the police and go here. Look at this video. He's just a meet him. Can you come with me. I feel like i'm surprised. See what you're saying. I see what church just didn't make sense to me that you feel sorry for him. But he's he's sends them a fucking wolfe with You know open it up and there's a fucking knife and the thing i don't know i just nine. Oh you said you hit everything. Now wait a minute. Let me ask ya. I know you said you hated everything. About what about the scene when he gets into his apartment and he cuts his hair. Did you find that creepy at all. How'd you feel it was funny. Funny okay okay. So why did he kill them. Then i know he's like torture. So why is it killing in the middle of a park. You know cats kill him in the middle of a park when he could have killed them then if that's what he was all dad really the whole movies about is him killing him. You know. that's that's fine. That's what i said. It was just like there's no real mystery to this whole movie all the movies about this guy's tormenting this filmmaker and he's gonna kill him. You just don't know when. And i was just like well. I'm not interested. Gotcha just an interest me. I said there's no saving the movie. The whole concept is just stupid and that stupid but it just. There's nothing to it you know. I shouldn't say stupid because you just there's nothing to the plot but there's another thing could you add to it could you. Could you do anything. But you're talking like starting from square one. Like i'd have to come up the whole different concept but it just you know i didn't. I didn't care for the character. I think here for both characters. I didn't like the character. The the main guy course. But that's what you're supposed to like him. Yeah but the filmmaker just couldn't sympathize with him because he was just fucking stupid. I see what you're saying you're stupid. I'm sorry if you're that fucking stupid you deserve to get an action your head in the middle of fucking park all right all right so i took. That's what i took from the movie. I mean that's you know. I got gotcha. I know there's been stupid characters in movies before. But he when he's talking to the police he's a fucking idiot fuck and police. He didn't have the guy's name. I don't know with all this shit. So why don't you think you would prepare to talk to the police or why are you talking on the phone fucking bring all the videos that the guy sent. I sell your fucking story. Go down to the fucking police station and talked to. They can make believe you. I see when you're talking on the phone like a fucking idiot. Like i don't know the guy's name i don't know where he lives. I don't know. I feel threatened and then you're not doing anything about.

Maybe it'll be a massage bound in you. Know nothing against you know that's fine. I took it as i am like. What is this is a guy. I mean i have nothing against it. I'm i thought he was gay because it was obvious that the it was going to a guy so it wasn't okay so anyway so and then and then the stupid scares the trying to build up with just scare them all the time and i was like he didn't like that but see the whole thing is is that the one thing that really bothered me about the whole film. All right is that. I would've been out of there right after. The guy started hugging him a couple times. And then we're would have really been out of there after say come up. I'm taking a bath. Come up but now tailed right outta their rap. Wait wait wait hold. That'd be like here's your thousand dollars. Take it and i'm out. I don't care i don't need the fucking money. That is okay. Because i was just about to say he gave him the thousand right away. So you know. And i can see the motivation but i was kind of like okay. There's too many red flags in the red flex kept going and going. And i'm like okay. This guy's give him the benefit of the doubt. He knows he's dangerous. He knows he's something's wrong with them yet. He keeps we'll put dinners at whoring him. Okay but then. There's that whole story which we find out later isn't true but then there's that other part that where he talks about he's dying from cancer and you know maybe he had some sympathy for them. You know this might be his final days so he wants to do this recording. So there's that too weird i couldn't. I didn't have any sympathy for him. I was like You know okay. After he's talking to his sister. I think that was turned. Yeah he's got some mental problems. And he's like i don't know and then he couldn't find her keys and keys. I don't know. I just yeah. I couldn't wait for the movie to end so into it. I couldn't it was this was just a you. Didn't find it a little creepy. Little i it was. It was unnerving you know because the way the guy's acting. But then i. I had to laugh because i didn't know how else to take the movie. Okay you know especially when he's talking about about animal pornography. I was laughing. Yeah that was like animal pornography but boom. I what i guess to me it was you know what if you were in the situation. You know what. I mean this. Could it really happen. you know. It's one of those where you can answer at and you could go to this person you know. You are taking a risk rolling the dice it you know. You don't know movies taping but it was too obvious to me. I knew what was going to happen. I too obvious it was too. He was gonna kill an and the and i can't sympathize with a with a character that stupid and keep going. I mean even after the fact of everything that was going on he doesn't trust them. Okay sends them to third cd right. You know that stuck in his window. The guy cuts the window open. Put rights cd there. And he's like what the fuck look as. I'm sorry man you know. I'm going to be in a public place right. Come out i apologize right. Why would.

"September. Now it's may now it's this month. They're pushing everything. everything's like. Okay where there already for the summer. They're going to release everything during the summer. Oh man i mean. The marvel announced movies until twenty. Twenty three yeah with the marvel universe. Now let me ask you something. You saw the trailer for the quiet place prior to yes. It looks like this takes place before the second movie or absurd fourth. I think it happened. I think it shows you would happen before the first movie before the first and then it goes into what's happening now after. That's what i. That's what i kinda of the for the first movie than after the shows you what happened to the family Happened and it shows you what's happening to the family now so it's kind of like well. Here's here's what's happened. Here's what happened before the first movie. Erase on the first movie. Now this is what's happening now after the first movie interesting. Yeah that's i was like. Oh this is cool okay. That's an interesting approach. I was thinking that. Just like a sequel. It'd be like what happened you know. I'm sure a lot of people wanted to find out what was going on because it really explaining thing in the first movie i mean just said there was these answers and quiet and that was really. It didn't really go into too much backs. But at the end of the first they left it wide open. of course. yeah yeah. I ran up right where they left off after the first movie. But it looks like they're doing a little different. I don't know how that's going go. They might pick up right. We're left off and then do flashbacks or just start with a flashback. And then go into what's happening guy. But that's what i got from the trailer look interesting. I was like oh looks looks great. Oh my god it looks great. So i hope i'm not disappointed in that but because i really like my no man i just i myself off so much and then it's like oh my goodness pretty much just like oh my god. I don't know maybe from our have. Our standards raised a little bit ram. What i've got some really good movies and even like average movies look like shit to us all of a sudden. We've sent some really good movies. We've seen some talented filmmakers. Make some really great movies. And that's probably what it is. Yeah and now. Our standards are so high. I feel like yeah the pot we raise the bar really did and i just Want to listen to us anymore. Walking critical there's like little bit movie man kramer to act. Come on. He was great. But i just the other actors are like going don van. I know i know. I got a lower the bar somehow. Maybe i don't know. I don't think they gain is getting to you man. Maybe it is. I got another up.

Oh yeah oh goodness gracious really. This has been going on for like a fucking year. News talk is going to be great unhinged. And i just disappoints holy shit. I liked some of it. And then i didn't like some of it. You know it was one of those. It was a roller-coaster. Kinda hit a feeling. No russell crowe you know i mean. How long can you watch. Russell crowe go nuts. you know he just. He was actually good. He was good he was very is. I mean he's like a kennedy award wonderful actor as as we all know but Yeah i just. The first scene was great. You know and then. I'm like to that. It was well. They showed a lot in the trailer. So i knew some things that were coming up and that was okay. That was okay. Show the goddamn whole moving trailer way. Now they gave away a lot but not too much not too much. But just you know what it was rob. You know what it was. It was one of those what daily but he leaned after a crow anyway. I'm sorry no okay. It's it's it's one of those words. Would they really have done that. They really would have done this. You don't one of those words just that didn't really make sense. And if i was in that situation. I don't know that you know. I would have done that. You know it just so that breaks it up for me and it just pulls a good prelude to the movie. We're going to be discussing later on. Go ahead go ahead. I had a feeling i had a feeling. And we'll get to that. God it's crazy horror vein when we did it is it is So yeah i mean without really dwelling on it. I mean it was an okay. Movie i did. It was okay. So it wasn't worth all the hype Did you did you think that has anything to do with the trailer. Look dos and like all these other than i just said. It wasn't really horror film though right. It was kind of suspense thriller. You know and just just i mean what can you do with somebody you know. Bankers with road rage. I mean you can't like apple let me give an example so he takes her phone so now he knows everything about her. Well just upped so. He goes to her brother's house. And you know the brother and the fiance or there and these torture them and he he kills. Well yeah so. The brother pulled a knife and he pushes the fiance onto the brother. And he kills her because he's holding the knife and then she's dead on the bed and then he's tall taped up and he ends up burning them and you think he's dead and you know and she's got this flip phone that he placed in her car after he took her phone through this looming. Flip one. yeah they do so she sir she finds out that she thinks her brother's dead and just the reaction was like really a little bit too much. You're done you the movie yet. Come sorry but i just i can tell you that just that well i just i mean you pay. Did you pay to see this movie. Three ninety nine. Oh my god yeah. I'd be upset too. So it's just some of the reaction. Some of the acting. Some of the destroy says they made. I just yeah. I think he didn't see it in the theater. Yeah i didn't care for it and it was okay but then i saw straw dogs and apparently. That's a remake. Well as worth while those remake and then there's the original straw dogs right sam peckinpah and i didn't see the i couldn't find the original. I wanted to watch the original. But i did watch the original. Because you've seen it. It's very violent. Because it's sam peckinpah but i gotta. I couldn't find it on amazon. I wanted to do that. And i couldn't find but anyway.

"Okay we can change from worst to best okay in this one time. This one time for this one series. Okay so we fast when we cover f nine fast saga we go back. We go back to best to worst. It's the only thing that makes sense. But however for this five movie ten weeks series we have to go from worst to best which is going to be a pretty big adjustment I will say coming in at an unfortunate number one and also coming in at number one with a bullet is a twenty fourteen. Godzilla directed by gary. That words Slash evans a straight bryan cranston. Juliet noche elizabeth olsen. Atta taylor joy and godzilla. And now it's time for my list which is called the top five godzilla list. Two thousand twenty nine april twentieth. Here we go four twenty four twenty blaze. It weep weep weep weep. It's not as on. Its we delete e com o. We become a weep and coming in at the worst and best injury of this series. It's godzilla twenty fourteen because it underutilized. elizabeth olsen. She should play godzilla yeah. I'm glad that you had a reason for it. Being the worst it's also the best because You know really really applauding anya taylor. Joy for playing outside of virginia. Yeah you know it's a it's a real. It's a real queen's gambit she. i don't know that's a shitty joke. i haven't seen okay the cameras now showing our cameraman who doesn't exist. If you like. And the taylor. Joe you should watch the queen's gambit it's fine it's just one of those. Netflix shows that like everybody loved this. Pretty good canton. I'm watch netflix. For the enemy. Oh like a sound and fury high rise invasion never. That sounds a lot like the raid directed by gareth evans who definitively did not direct. This movie oh did the raid. Take place only on the roofs of buildings. No wait can nothing like it okay. I'll i'll look into high-rise invasion people the plot of the raid. It's just an action movie where they moved floor by floor up. A is high-rise. It's really good. The rate is the best. You're gonna hate you're gonna hate hydros invasion but yeah check it out. I got a lot of animators to watch mostly every season other than the first two of my hero academia. Oh yeah. I gotta catch up on that. But that's been our list of godzilla movies thus far and the wb monster verse if you will and next time not next week but next time during the summer of movies ten weeks godzilla. So next next week will be a normal episode of zero credits. But next time on the godzilla summer of god. That's right the summer of the great green mother of three we will be covering kong skull island and We'll we will..

"I don't know why i was gonna call it this but the great green mother of three i think we we we the great trine mother of three. I think my brain was really reaching for like slant. Rhyme with green rain is the great green mother of three bigger than a tree. The mother of yes But no i. I think maybe we should talk a little bit about our personal relationships with godzilla. Because they're i think they're actually pretty storied on. If this is a celebration of a great grandmother of three i really let that go I feel like it would make sense for us to talk about that ryan. Okay so godzilla is a giant lizard. One might call it a dinosaur it breathes fire or atomic breath from its mouth and all of these this to say that for a young henry that checked all the boxes for something. That was fucking cool. And so i had godzilla toys godzilla. Video games on late night on comedy central or sifi one of those two channels old godzilla movies would come on and catch them and watch them in black and white and they were there. Goofy is fought but i was being thrall who the ones they could see usually involved mothra for some reason that maybe they only add the rights to the mothra related godzillas I don't know but yes. Godzilla was huge and great and good and will always be huge. Great and good and that is me john. Yeah i was and still am a huge godzilla fan. Especially as a child. I owned a ton of godzilla toys I think i was in a similar boat. I think it was like a sci fi channel or something would just air a lot of old godzilla. Movies love those bought. The toys watched of course the the terrible terrible animated series Zouqi zoo key up from the depths thirty stories high Not a good show But i loved godzilla as a kid. And then growing up i continued to love godzilla through my kind of awkward anime loving teen phase and then kinda fell off. But i think that in the last few years the last seven years. I guess i've actually spent a lot of time watching these movies from the kind of nouveau godzilla. Cinematic universe of moore's all remember two thousand four's godzilla with matthew broderick mesic. Since then was who i think is as a small child. I watched that godzilla. It's not two thousand four hundred ninety seven. Sorry yeah it was a movie that was so bad that somebody at toho watched it was like okay. We can't let the americans have this movie. And so. They came back with a godzilla. Two thousand yes godzilla. Two thousand rules. Yeah godzilla to updated the look of godzilla officially changed from green to more of a black and the breath turned blue. All all good choices and it all came from matthew broderick noticing that the earthworms were upset. Yes movie fucking starts is like the earth who observed said then godzilla shows offers like. This explains the earth worms. Mike matthew broderick killed somebody. Yeah no one ever really talks about that. And we shan't either spent a lot of time watching these these new foe godzilla movies but i think to your delight. I will tell you that. I don't think i've actually seen this godzilla movie until episode now so. Yeah this guy de la movie headed by. Wb kicks off what is now known as the monster cinematic universe or something the monster..
