Welcome back to the bench of Hero show, So the narrative on the left is that the police are systemically Racists in terrible in every way and the true danger to black Americans. The evidence to back this incredibly scan see that matter narrative Trump's reality every single time. The continuing narrative over and over and over is that the police are systemically racist at every individual anecdotal incident involving a white police officer and a black suspect that goes bad. Every one of those is evidence that black Americans are existential threat the United States once again, there is no statistical evidence that black Americans are an existential threat in the United States. None Black Americans represent 13% of the population of the United States meeting there about 40 million Black Americans every year. There are fewer than 25 Black Americans were shot unarmed by the police. It is not next potential threats to black Americans. Are far more likely in Black America to be killed by fellow black person than you are to be killed by a white cop. And if you're white, hot, by the way, you are significantly more likely to be killed by a black American than you are likely to kill a black American in the line of duty. By the way that intergroup violence think that's true in trump violence, And that is true of every single racial group in America, with the exception of Asian Americans were most likely to be target, according to FBI statistics by black Americans. If you're white, you're not most likely to be targeted by a black person. You're most likely to be targeted by a white person. If you're black, you're most likely to be target by a black person in your community, and we're talking about extraordinary rates of murder in the black community. And what are the real threat to black life in America? The police rank extremely low on that list and the absence of police Ironically writes extremely high on the list because it turns out the one the police leave more people shoot each other, regardless of race. So that is not the narrative. The media the nerve. The media is that the police are the existential threat to black Americans. Chelsea handler that dolt she tweeted out the other day that why would she obey police orders when there's like a 50 50 shot that even if you obey police orders, you're gonna get shot. Think that statistic is pulled directly out of her ass. She had removed her head from her ass in order to get to the staff. 50 50 shot of being shot by the cops. If you comply with orders, there are 40,000,040 million police interactions with suspects in the United States every year. 40 million civilian police interactions again.

"You know, I got my Madonna Early December January, and then the debate I had is one Johnson and Johnson's available and all the contacts and everyone's been vaccinated with their be value and doing that in the fall, and I think they're you know, it's it's a different way of stimulating your immune system. Through the adenovirus is the cold virus. Simulation. Um, I debated that nobody's in the study. I'm sure someone will. I know they're doing a dual vaccine with Johnson and Johnson. They're studying its efficacy as well. But, yeah, hard to say, Well, I mean, it wouldn't It wouldn't hurt you, probably, but it may not help right? Well, I don't think I would hurt you other than these six blood clot cases out of seven million doses and again, we know that there are serious reactions. Any vaccine any vaccine? I don't care if it's Diphtheria, tetanus for testes. Polio whatever. About one in a million people could have a serious reaction to the vaccine, and that's what we've seen with Jan J. Six out of seven million. No, but you got to get your dip Tet. Okay. Jesus. Any time to quote any time she can quote that movie, she will. That's okay. Hi. Any other questions from me? That's that's it for the phones. Do we have we covered the whole Johnson and Johnson pause. Kind of what? We talked about that doctor Kabul. Ah did they really have to pause it because, as you said, it's six cases out of What? How many million? Yeah, So did they have to stop it? And why did well I think it's unfortunate just because it creates more fear in the community and again. I think we noticed that it's about two thirds to 3/4 of these people are women. Tend to be younger 30 40 50 on guy think that we don't know what The underlying causes for that, But for some reason, they have this trombone Bolic stage and you know there are other drugs would do that to hormone replacement therapy, Does it Tobacco does so and But the incidence we expect in the community was one or two cases, and we've had a tripling or or fivefold higher rate than we expected. And it definitely happens within the first 3 to 20 days after the vaccine, So I think the key is if someone Should get a severe Headache or stroke like symptoms like they're going to explode in their head or severe abdominal pain because it affects the cerebral veins or the splenic nicknames in the abdomen. If you get a severe abdominal pain, go to the emergency room immediately, so we can do anticoagulants in care, and the clinicians are aware of it. We can't use the heparin type therapy. We have to use different Therapy because for some reason, the antibody response that makes the blood clot interacts with the heparin. That medication which we would traditionally use. It is interesting, but that only happened six times. Apparently, yeah, in the U. S. I think they've had about 40 million vaccines because The AstraZeneca vaccine was approved, and it's similar technology that was approved in the UK and Europe in January. I think they've done about 40 million over there, and they've had about 400 cases so Again of the rates are quite low. But if you get severe head pain or spirit, Donald Payne that's an emergency room visits for sure. Dr Kabul. Thank thank you very much, and we'll talk to you next week. I felt.

She can't go up much for that from that. There are about 40 million people that have gotten at least one dose. 14.5 million that have completed the vaccination. Yeah, that makes sense. I mean, what you were saying, if only 14.5 million and then this giant country have gotten both shots that can't have much of an effect on what the numbers are. It's not hurt, but, yeah, it's not the factor. Which leads me to this. I saw a deep dive on Florida versus California, Florida, California Seiko, but 19 declines despite different approaches. And I could get in all the numbers, but it's not bore you with. Just suffice it to say that all the numbers are really, really close as to how many cases how many deads per capita, um, all these different things, except for California shut down hard and for a long time, and Florida barely shut down at all. California did a stay at home order is recently as a couple of weeks ago, and with hardly anybody was aware of right and we're finding businesses for opening in Florida. The governor was going to find you was going to find your county if you made a business shut down. They made it illegal in Florida to enforce shut down orders and people stayed open and you ended up with almost exactly the same results. In terms of per capita cases, Death's hospitalizations, etcetera in the long term, that's just crazy. So what do you do with that? I've thought for a long time, and I'm not basing this on anything. I've just thought the virus is going to do what it's gonna do. And it seems to be the case now. I definitely believe in masks. I absolutely want 10% believe in masks and social distancing, But I would guess that people were doing that in Florida pretty well. Yeah, I guess it could be that anything beyond Sensible personal precautions is wasted effort and and crushing the economy. That if if what we find out out of this in the long term, is that The restaurant thing that didn't do anything at all could've been open. Could've been closed, especially outdoor dining made no difference whatsoever. Oh, yeah, that whole part was just egregious when, in the early days, they were shutting down golf courses in parks that that deserves a slapping. I mean, that was that was idiotic. Then even with our very You know our huge lack of knowledge about this beast even back then, that was inexcusable. Restaurants were shut down for outside dining as of a couple of weeks ago in California, As you know, you can barely see it was. It's not like it was ancient history. It might happen again. If these variants to take off. I just I just hope that we got enough data now that if it is a if it starts to get hot again, um, the virus, you know, traveling around more numbers start going up that we don't We don't start claiming that California's doing it the right way following the science Destroyed idiots.

Because I've gone over to Lucy to talk with you. If you could do that, That'd be grand. Great that tells you And help me with that. All right. We're gonna continue on and we're gonna hope that me hearing myself back in my head on a 1.5 2nd delay isn't going to make me insane. Let's turn to our good friend Mike Lee Crain's Detroit business managing editor. He is coming in with today's edition of Crain's Detroit business. Mike. Good afternoon, or I should say good morning. I'm on the wrong side of the morning. You can tell me too. Me too. How are you? Well, I'm having a little technical issue here, but that's okay. I am intrigued by the story you have about a dream team being formed between Doug to boss Roger Penske, other business leaders yet to be named forming a private equity concern. Tell me about that. Yes, This is a scoop from uh, reporter Nick Manis. The sub array of sort of business luminaries, including the device Family and Roger Penske have teamed up to create a private equity fund. Um UM, Investment fund. It's going to focus on Michigan. It's going toe they're focusing on buying up companies that they're typically family owns. Sort of mid sized and small manufacturers would be an example. That her family owned. Might you looking to sell their companies for purposes of estate planning or something like that? It's kind of a commitment that they believe in Michigan. First of all, but they're they're they're looking toe. Operate a little differently than some private equity funds Do private equity funds are known for. Buying up companies. Expecting, you know, making making changes to fix the business and then putting in selling the company was in 3 to 5 years. Um, folks organizing this one say they're sort of characterizing. It is patient capital, where they you know they might actually buy companies and hold onto them and continue to operate them. Um, uh, invite even, you know, keep them indefinitely. Well, you're right. Our experience with the private equity here in Detroit, you know, we remember service. We remember Kmart remember me over aren't van and we don't remember them. Finally, um, that they are stripping flip. In many cases, at least you that ended up being our experience, so the idea that this would be a more benevolent approach to private equity? Um, would be a really interesting concept. It sounds promising. You know, we'll have to see how it plays out and what they what they acquire. The interesting interesting thing to me is that They're folk by focusing on the geographical area and Michigan. It seems to me like they would be buying companies with which they have a familiarity with the industry, which has been one problem with private equity. Buying up a retailer like our band. And putting people into running who don't know anything about operating furniture change that that may have happened. And it seems like that, you know that they can tap the local expertise that understands the industries that these these companies are operating in. You brought a part Van an interesting story in today's edition of Cranes that talks about an interesting problem or maybe an interesting opportunity that we have in this area, which is the art Van L. Slander Foundation. Has a pot of money that it needs to give away. Yes, Exactly. One of one of the one of the outcomes of the sale of our band was the was the family created a A foundation. Um, about $40 million. I believe that that is, you know, into support Charity. One of the one of the one of its focus is is the slightest Casey Senate. The form that this foundation is taking. It is sort of interesting. It is what is called a spend down foundation most that that means that they aim to give away all of their money. Within a certain time period. Um, foundations are usually created to last forever. If you think of the Ford Foundation, or or or something like that, they're they're they're intended to last forever. This is would be the second spend down foundation that we know of. In Metro Detroit. The first one being the Ralph Wilson fund was created in your state of the former owner. The Buffalo Bills. Grosse Pointe resident, um, that it had. Bean is aiming to give away $2 billion in 20 years of an Auslander foundation isn't quite that big, but it's It's still in interesting model that you know. Sometimes foundations were criticized for being too conservative and two Uh, you know that pay more attention to maintaining the The money in the foundation and the giving away of the money, right? Well, it means that there are a number of different entities now that can make their pitch. Um and there's a number of them that caught my eye is being very interesting, innovative, one of them being Mitch album, obviously who we have Ah, personal interest in that say Detroit was one of those charities that they were very interested in. Maybe partnering with for this spend down there seems to be charities that have the opportunity to scale. Which is a good use of foundation money in my opinion. So the other thing that we're watching and it's it is interesting. One of the most gratifying parts of this covert experience. If there has been one has has been this arsenal of health component to it. We've seen so many businesses. Pivot on a dime from producing maybe a manufactured good to manufacturing PPE or sanitizer. And I guess the question becomes, Do they stay in this diversified business once the pandemic ends? Exactly. You know when you when you pivot and learn how to do something new. That's something new might wind up being profitable for you way talk to a whole array of companies, many of which we had We had written about their pivot. In the in the last spring in the depths of the outbreak, and, uh many of them are planning to stay in that business. One of one example is Griffin Club Brewery. Um, like a lot of breweries and distilleries. They shifted to making hand sanitizer. They make it they make it from the still beer. Basically, um, they have gotten into a lot of retailers. I know. I see that. There's just one of the more noticeable in my supermarket. They sell a four ounce bottles for $5. They say it's not quite as profitable is selling beer, but it is a good business sign and they're going to stay in it. Not everybody is doing that wouldn't want. One of the companies we talked to is called actor of all technologies. They make mouth guards for football and football players. Another athletes, Um obviously sports came to a screeching halt, and so did their business. They shifted to making face shields last spring, and they say they're not going to stay in that business. But Um, those face shields made up 50% of their sales last year and essentially help them survive. That those are some of the stories that are coming out of this. It zip me It's a really, really interesting time. There was a lot of innovation. Um,.

Trump wants $2,000 coronavirus stimulus check

"The covert 19 relief check going to Americans. Congress approved $600 checks in the bill passed this week. The president wants to more than double that he made this announcement in a video released on social media Tuesday night. Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked covert relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election. Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. For example, among the more than 5000 pages in this bill, which nobody in Congress has red because of its length and complexity. It's called the covert Relief Bill. It has almost nothing to do with covert. This bill contains $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment, $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan. $505 million to believes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D C, which is not even open for business $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art. Likewise, these facilities are essentially not open $7 million for Reef Fish management $25 million to combat Asian carp $2.5 million to count the number of amberjack fish. In the Gulf of Mexico a provision to promote the breeding of fish in federal hatcheries, $3 million in poultry production technology $2 million to research the impact of down trees. $566 million for construction projects at the FBI. The bill also allows stimulus checks for the family members of illegal aliens, allowing them to get up to $1800. Was each this is far more than the Americans were given. Despite all of this wasteful spending, and much more than $900 billion package provides hardworking taxpayers with only $600 each in relief payments and not enough money is given to small businesses. And in particular restaurants whose owners have suffered so grievously. They were only given a deduction for others to use in business there restaurant for two years, this two year period must be withdrawn, which will allow the owners to obtain financing and get their restaurants back in condition. Congress contaminated at a much later date, but two years is not acceptable. It's not enough. Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who needed. It wasn't their fault. It was China's fault, not their fault. I'm asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600. $2000 or $4000 for a couple. I'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a covert relief package. And maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done. Thank you very much. Statement recorded by

HBO's New Documentary Warns Of The Dangers Of Cyberwarfare

"The perfect weapon now on HBO is a documentary about a danger. We've all heard a lot about, but don't really know new and frightening warning from the FBI on hackers using malicious software to launch a cyber attack against us. It's based on the best selling book by New York Times National Security correspondent David He, Sanger. About a new form of conflict that is global, inexpensive, invisible and supremely available to small groups, not just large powers. Jon Mateos, the director of the perfect weapon, and he joins us now from Brooklyn. Thank you so much for being with us. Thanks for having me, Scott. You know, I'm going to ask you plenty of questions about the dangers that cyber warfare poses to the US, But I have to ask you first. Did we fire the first shots across the bow? It appears as if we did Scott because when we attacked the Iranian nuclear program in 2007, the code that we put into the plant was released and everyone knew about it. Now there were plenty of covert kind of operations that go on, probably things we'll never know about. But that one was let out of the box. And because of that, it appears as if we fire the first shot, and we've been paying for it ever since. Let me ask you about a few attacks. We know about 2013 cyber attack. On Las Vegas that was done in response to something of casino owners. That's right. Well, he wasn't just any casino owner was Sheldon Adelson, a well connected casino that's correct on he had gone online. He was part of the symposium where he talked about actually setting off a nuclear weapon. Against Iran as a way to stop their nuclear program, and that video went onto YouTube. It went viral and the Iranians found out about it, and they planned, very powerful, destructive cyber attack of his sands casino operation to demonstrate something to him or to the United States. Oh, that's the thing about these sorts of attacks. You know, they're short of war attacks. They're not necessarily attacking our Our critical infrastructure all the time. But it sends a message. That destructive attack is easy for a country like Iran. It's it's an asymmetrical attack, and it made a very strong point. Once it was let out. I mean, the Sands Corporation did everything I could to hide the fact that they've lost $40 million in their technology, But it was let out and incentive, frightening message And, as David Sanger says in the film What happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas 2014 cyberattack essentially brought down a Seth Rogan James Franco film the interview, which in fact does raise serious questions about freedom of expression. On also of you know, a major film corporation Sony. Yeah, that was that was the one that really got so much notice because it became suddenly an international incident. And I have to say it's one of the big issues in the film that I think people will recognizes that that the US is uniquely vulnerable to these kinds of attacks because of our open this because of our First Amendment because of the public square. Our weapons against authoritarians regimes don't necessarily have the same effect happened. Dump attacks, like what happened at Sony are not as effective to countries like Iran and Russia.

McDonald's sues ousted CEO, alleging employee relationships

"McDonald's has made striking new allegations against its former CEO of the company says Steve Easterbrook hid sexual relationships with employees and concealed the evidence. The fast food giant fired Easterbrook last year. Now it is suing him to get back his multi $1,000,000 severance package. NPR's Alina Selya HQ reports. What makes this case pretty remarkable is that it's been nine months since Easterbrook was fired. The reason a consensual relationship with an employee that amounted to sexting and American corporate culture typically is all about sorting these kinds of internal scandals quickly and behind closed doors. Here's Tim Hubbard, a professor at the University of Notre Dame. There's always this tendency to wanna settle it quietly and get it completely out of the media. But here we are talking about it again because now McDonald's Is suing Easterbrook, saying he covered up more inappropriate behavior. McDonald's made this unusual choice because back in November, Easterbrook left with the severance estimated at over $40 million. But in July, an anonymous tip led the company to search corporate servers and their investigators found explicit photos and videos sent from Easter. Brooks corporate account evidence of sexual relationships with three employees, including one woman for whom Easterbrook approved a stock grant worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I think that there was an expectation as they were negotiating a settlement. That the former chief executive officer be open and honest. The company says he lied to get a better exit payout and is suing to get that money back. Few companies find these kind of public battles with former executives. MacDonald says. It's already moved to block Easterbrook from selling any stock he might still have from his equity awards. I don't really see the likelihood of him returning the money without A bit of force needed. I think it gets pretty nasty Easter. Brooks legal team did not respond to NPR's enquiries, and we should note that McDonald's is among NPR's recent sponsors. Mr Brooks, Compensation for being fired drew much attention and criticism last year. It included six months of severance pay shares and other equity, leading many low wage frontline workers to muse about their pay gap with executives. And use the moment to highlight allegations of rampant sexual harassment of female employees by male co workers and managers across McDonald's restaurants sharing to Johnny directs the time's up Legal Defense Fund, which is backing workplace sexual harassment lawsuits by McDonald's workers were going to say You can't do certain things that were going to take conduct seriously. And they should be taking it seriously when it comes to their workers being sexually harassed, and, at a minimum committed 40 million. They're trying to get back from Easterbrook to stop that. Easterbrook successor, CEO Chris Kempinski often speaks about re committing to company values of integrity and inclusion.

McDonald's says ex-CEO hid sexual relationships with employees

"Has made striking new allegations against its former CEO. The company says Steve Easterbrook hid sexual relationships with employees and concealed the evidence. The fast food giant fired Easterbrook last year. Now it is suing him to get back his multi $1,000,000 severance package. NPR's Alina Selya HQ reports. What makes this case pretty remarkable is that it's been nine months since Easterbrook was fired. The reason a consensual relationship with an employee that amounted to sexting and American corporate culture typically is all about sorting these kinds of internal scandals quickly and behind closed doors. Here's Tim Hubbard, a professor at the University of Notre Dame. Always this tendency to wanna settle it quietly and get it completely out of the media. But here we are talking about it again because now McDonald's is suing Easterbrook, saying he covered up more inappropriate behavior. McDonald's made this unusual choice because back in November, Easterbrook left with the severance estimated at over $40 million. But in July, an anonymous tip led the company to search corporate servers and their investigators found explicit photos and videos sent from Easter Brooks corporate account. Evidence of sexual relationships with three employees, including one woman for whom Easterbrook approved a stock grant worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I think that there was an expectation as they were negotiating a settlement that the former chief executive officer be open and honest. The company says He lied to get a better exit payout and is suing to get that money back. Few companies find these kind of public battles with former executives. MacDonald says. It's already moved to block Easterbrook from selling any stock he might still have from his equity awards. I don't really see the likelihood of him returning the money without A bit of force needed. I think it gets pretty nasty Easter.

Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars

Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars

"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

'Onward' Leads Box Office With Ho-Hum $40 Million

"Right Steve tells about armored yes it's the latest from Pixar here we go it begins with a look back in history not not our history but the history of a fantasy world where all manner of sort of mermaids and unicorns and elves and fairies and minotaurs and wizards in just about any other creature you might find in a role playing game would exist but as these fantasy beings find short cuts to do doing magic over time like why why user wings to fly when you can buy an ORP airplane ticket or why use a spell to start a fire would you can use a match they become lazy and the magic that made them special starts to disappear from the world at large so skip ahead to more or less the presentation you meet we meet Ian and barley who were to elf brothers voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt they grew up with it without their father because the the father died just before the younger Ian was born and when barley was still a young a young L. fling there mother who's voiced by Julia Louis Dreyfus has done a great job of raising them but that hasn't kept him from being frustrated at not having a dad he kinda lacks confidence he doesn't have a lot of friends and I believe that having a father in his life might have changed that barley is is a bit of a lovable lug who knocked everything over that distance pass any tried to take connected to the magical world through role playing games and he drives this amazing band named Guinevere that he refers to it as mighty Steven if you see the detailing on the side you'll understand why so he in turn sixteen is mom gives the in this very special present from his dad it's a wizard staff that includes a built in spell that brings this is supposed to bring his father back to life for twenty four hours and I even kind of botches the spell about halfway through with only the bottom half of his father basically just his pants appear to him very much alive and communicative but without sort of gears in a haze in ways to communicate very well even figured out that he needs something called a Phoenix crystal to complete the spell and barley thinks this is a great opportunity to sort of tear up on a brotherly class that ends with even forgetting to spend this day with his dad that he's always dreamed of in for barley it's a chance to rediscover the magic that still exists in their world the director Dan Scanlan who did monsters university which was definitely not one of my favorite Pixar films has crafted what what might be Pixar's purist adventure film get him in the team have filled it with water last action in a great deal of creativity I really like that could be a Spencer this beastly creature that she plays name the manticore that's part lion and bad the scorpion and she used to be the most feared and respected creature in the realm and now she's managing the theme restaurant but between the laughs on where does what Pixar does best which is that fine that emotional core of the story and by the end we realize the film isn't about this kids search for his father it's about this kid realizing the into appreciating the people in his life that did raise him and did have a hand in shaping who he is and you know if you have a sibling in your life that you're particularly close to I'm gonna get you you might cry like a baby in this movie I don't know but on would also deal with issues of bullying and searching for inner confidence and how real magic sometimes from just comes from just believing in that you can that you can do something even if you can't so it sounds corny it is Corning sometimes I think the energy that Holland impressed bring to these characters is really impressive and they sort of cell that lifelong bond it's genuinely moving the sometimes manic performances carry over to the pacing of the film which at times can be exhausting but onward finishes strong I think with a stand off between our heroes and a really interesting visual take on what I always think of the played out creature in the fantasy world the that needs some conquering in this film this is the the the old the the whole film is sort of hit and miss at times but I think the final act delivers on its emotional promise and brings all things to a satisfying conclusion at least the movie sort of dealt with itself in color and imagination and and and a healthy dose of enthusiasm I think we end up winning the day I was shockingly underwhelmed by this movie is the prologue of this movie that that Steve described as the this idea that the magic of kind of got out of the world everyone's you've taken the easy way out we do not agree to set up for a movie a movie that I knew very little about yeah that's all users are like an elder in road trip movie with two brothers and I thought that that was pretty good pretty great set up and the movie business takes on that life that it just seems that it gets easy itself and the sort of forgets the the really sort of really intriguing premise that it sets itself apart but then that would be in the emotional undercurrent in this movie of this movie where they're trying to resurrect their dad for this very brief time in their lives one of the bridge brothers should be no didn't really know him at all I you know I I was expecting a much bigger payoffs at the end of the film and the it's a little slow for the bulk of the movie ice was sort of tolerating in this adventure story which I really wish I had only been the one brother I really did not like the Chris Pratt brother character I thought it was just the heat interrupted everything too often I would much rather have been so little story with the brother try and of the one year old son trying to reconnect with his father is this wonderful moments really early on in the movie where the the the younger brother have a tape of his father and he has the nose the tape so while he's able to sync crappy conversation with his father as a result of that I thought well what I mean that to me in such a way that display all the unsold set up for this movie now and then it just became more of a routine adventure story with a couple nifty set pieces along the way and I was just waiting for this conclusion to really only family families I'm going to get back at the end and I thought that they botched it to the entire movie I kept thinking about the ending to status perks A. I. which is seems to be where this movie almost guilt to gain that idea of resurrecting this you know your most loved person for a single day the never being able to speak to them ever again not that movie you know destroys me this movie left me underwhelmed yeah I was underwhelmed by it too I was it didn't have any to it but I didn't connect with it emotionally and that's really odd for Pixar movie because most Pixar movies you connect on an emotional level you know and but I can't I can't count the number of Pixar movies that have me crying you know like all agree on usually it's at the end but in the in the case of office the first ten minutes right but I didn't I didn't connect with these characters I was nicely animated there are some clever things in it and some of the action sequences are fine but I never connected with it on any kind of emotional level so I was I was disappointed with onward as well so it did make forty million over the weekend now six seven eight no no this is this isn't down there this is good dinosaur numbers yeah and the first big family they've ever opened in March it's always been either June November the couple won the end of may sell the I mean they have another one coming out in June I just don't know if they just didn't know where to put this movie or they didn't think it was strong enough for a summer holiday release but forty million dollars is not great for for for movie of they are real steel like Pixar okay all right and is million came in second with fifteen million up to about fifty three million total that's pretty solid let's see yeah it's almost yes it can be close to a hundred million dollars worldwide only cost seven million dollars to make you go man and then the way back eight point five million not not a that great unfortunately all right
