Hollywood Won’t Quit the Golden Globes, Despite No Black Members and a Corruption Scandal
"Maybe this'd year's awards ceremony is wrapped in controversy because of the composition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is the group that gives out the Golden Globe Award. Unlike the Academy Awards, which are given out by the academy that's about 6000 people. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is about 90 people, and they're all reporters. There, guys like me, men and men and women like me reporters that cover entertainment and they're the ones that give, you know, decide and give up The Golden Globe awards, but The controversy is here that it was learned that not a single member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association astonishingly is a person of color. And you know that may account for why movies like the Five Bloods the, uh, movie about my rainy my Rainey's black bottom. The movie about cash is playing Sam Cooke and This meeting of this four legendary black leaders of the sixties. Why why all these movies that are black oriented movies were not even nominated. When? In fact, they're some of the best movies of the year, you know, So there is a lot of controversy about this Golden Globes being exclusively white. S so you know, we'll see how that's gonna play out if if it does at all tonight. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?
"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations
"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed. By the idea of having jared sit in on their award show. But jared. Leto is not tom hanks. For example someone who did not get knocked out.

That's kind of worry. I'm now but you WANNA keep a level head and and keep it real to and But yeah no I have. There's there's things that I have mastered that I'm proud of it. Took many years to to develop so. Yeah one of the things. I think you'll became a really big public thing was so I you know in in the last year. Everybody's talking about the recent incarnation of the joker right with walking Phoenix. The version of the movie. That came before that with Heath Ledger. Mom was also pretty iconic you were you. Were at the center of what that whole thing. Tell me how that unfolds in. You know to tell you the truth Jonathan. I'm not really sure how that unfolded I can only guess that I did a film years before. They're called insomnia and Christopher Nolan directed it and while he fister was DP and and so I just did Al Pacino's makeup any had some scars I put on and it was really not a big deal and I met Chris there and it was great. He's Really Nice. Nice and then Years later I was finishing up a film and I got a call in the airport in New Mexico. The it was Emma. Thomas Chris Nolan's wife who's the producer and they said. We're doing this movie and the Dark Knight. Are you going to be in California? As as a matter of fact we're GONNA finish filming California. I'll be there and so long story short. They set up a meeting. I I went to Warner brothers and I bet I met a heath. He was rough costume fitting and Chris and Emma and we met and was like fifteen minute meeting at one of brothers and I I came away from thinking. Well you know. I don't know if I that went well. You know I just and they called me the face all good we WANNA you know. Start doing staff and tests and and that's basically how our started. Yeah I mean the night the the makeup that Joe dead on his face was it was it was extraordinary. Performance is just so extraordinary. Yes how did you use? I was just lucky it when when you think when you're sitting down with him right and you're developing this character. How do you even begin to come up with okay? So this is what we're GonNa do your divine inspiration or is there. There's some of that I think I think there's just that anyway but that's another story But the other there's always that reading the script EU. It's an organic thing it's Batman decide. Have superpowers these people are not like Marvel Comic Book. These are real people so one thing that Chris said is. This has to be plausible. This has to be a guy a psychopath. Who does his own makeup in can wear it for days or forget about it or could even be on drugs and not even realize that. He's wearing makeup so that that sets the wheels in motion in a design early on my designs were very deliberate. Like a makeup artist would do it. They were very clean and sharp. Lie almost like the kind of like the joker. The the approach they took with Walking Phoenix Very painted and clown like and That didn't fit that vision and so it had to be very degraded and broken down which goes against everything. We train makeup artist. You want clean lines and it so it was It the like I said the perfection in that make up was imperfection it had to be broken down and degraded and that's and that came through makeup tests with heath I would. They would fly me to London and we would start just playing around and then hitting on certain things like he he would be laughing at the chair and I would accidentally have painted over his crow's-feet the smile lines in week if these creases and he'd be like that looks great like we do it and it just kind of me and him and Chris Nolan brought in these Francis. Bacon paintings these books on these very blurred images Francis Bacon and and it will just kind of became a hodgepodge of ideas till finally you know became. Would it became? Yeah I've heard it said that team the The music the soundtrack and some movies becomes literally another character in the movie. Do you have a sense for not all the time. But in in certain moments insert moving to certain characters at the makeup also almost rises to the level becoming a character. Yeah I mean in my experience rarely I mean like Dick Tracy. Chester Gould Design. Those beautiful drawing so it was just an interpretation of a line. Drawing that was brilliant worked for years but it might experience in my career. It's only happened a few times and I'm grateful for that and one of those times was with Heath on the dark knight and Pretty Pretty Amazing when you when you work with somebody like that You develop a relationship with them again you know maybe fleeting there is a short intense intimacy the roost at. Haas to be there right here like six inches to of almost a foot away. You're the closest thing. Besides maybe a kissing scene with another actor your that year it's pretty intimate and and just physically and and often for hours longer than their even with the other actors in the cast when you're when you're doing something like that and then you're with heath in this example and then Soon after the movie. We don't like he ends them housing. How did that? How did you experience that? Honestly I cried. I just was Besides al he's the only actor river really kind of on an on that level connected to you get hugs every morning and every night you know and it was a it almost felt like you were working with some beyond the business in a sense so it really That that blindsided me. It took me a little time to shake that off. You know Yeah that that was a that was difficult time. Yeah Yeah and he was great. You know we would have these little parties little wrap parties because we would shoot in London and we was shot in Chicago and they'd have these parties and Heath and I always managed to dance together at these things. And you know you just have all these great great memories that are just beyond the work and that doesn't happen very often so the you know the those special things to me I mean also the beyond and beyond what would happen with heath the against the fundamental nature of working on a film vs on on an ongoing series. Is this thing where there is this. I have a family that forms temporarily air. You get fiercely closed for the short window. Time van like so much time like more than you ever spend with a friend outside of their environment and then at the end of it. You're everyone disbands. And they're off to their next project and do do you. Do you feel that sort of sense of transition or loss or because your part that you're part of the crew and then it's like UN and everyone's gone to that's right. Yeah you do you. There is a sense of That you know it's a break-up unless it's such a not such a good experience you're looking you're looking forward to you know but for the most part. Yeah I've been lucky in that sense that I've worked with some really cool people and technicians and people around me and even make inheritance teams that he those are the people at your most connected to the other makeup and hair people in the makeup trailer in the makeup room and when. That vibe is incredible. That's a tough thing to say goodbye to you. Want that to continue to you know Besides the actors and the directors and that's incredible but just in that group that's always that's always tough to say goodbye to those people you wanted to WanNa do it again and again when you think about the The craft side. It's breaking up of a band. Yeah I mean sounds like a really man. You know you're with this group and you're you're all in at four o'clock in the morning the actors come in but you you in the band other hair and makeup people to team are getting ready for the you know the principal cast to come in and you form a bond there. That's it when it's working in. It's it's clicking. It's that's a tough thing to say goodbye to sometimes stuff. Do you end up working with the same people in try. Yeah try now favorite and I do. I try to wiggle my way and wearing reduces to try to get some people that I really enjoyed working with and the the producers in the really great ones that I've been lucky to work with. They WANNA happy teepee because that's where the actors environment begins. Its in there and they want the most creative and and a good vibe could chew in the trailer that's important when you're working on your craft. How do you is even in this for decades? Now right we've seen a lot of years in the industry but also just on an individual level as somebody who cares about the craft. Somebody cared about the craft long before you're even in the industry side of it And you get so deep into it where you sort sorta become one of the leading players in that space. How how do you keep up? I'll I'll say from my chair yearly but your when you've been doing it for a long time maybe the most leading player sitting in this chair and that your how do you do anything to proactively. Continue to push the envelope on your Cape assure. You sure you wanna stay up on everything. 'cause it's it's a competition really. I mean it comes down to Being on your game so you know for me if it's prosthetic sculpture and design. That's something that I really always kion. It's like keeping your fingers on Guitar. You know you just WANNA stay on it. And so that's that's something that you know. I'm always I was have my nose in the glamour magazines looking at new products and new trends. And Yeah I mean if you WanNa stay in business you better keep your hands on it so yeah always plus I love it. I mean I still do after all these years I still i. It's sick but you know one.

"Fan at all. But but I've really appreciated in loved what she was saying her earn. Howard we're having this discussion and Leslie was talking about how she was in? The all female reboot ghostbuster in movies work in general all because they're great movies. GHOSTBUSTERS was special one. Because of the time why. People continue to remake Halloween and they continue to remain. I mean there's talk for another joker movie and people are continuing to beat down these. There's another sorry make. There's another Halloween. It's it's like enough but anyways we're not going on a tangent on unnecessary remakes. Leslie Jones was talking to Howard and she's in the all-female movie ghostbusters. The all the all female reboot the one re that completely bombed last year. And it's tough I think to be `situation because you cannot remake. A classic very rarely do remakes ever work and they don't work when you WanNa make a when you WanNa Base Komo movie based on who you want for your cast versus the story itself. So I don't know I just anyways there were having a discussion Howard Stern Leslie Jones and she was like I was so honored to be in this movie. You know and she was really proud and I totally get that. I get what she's trying to say. You know she was talking to Howard our she said you know. We're all done only wrapped. We thought we had a really great movie on our hands. You know so I don't know I. I love the fact that she had so much pride in the fact that she wanted it to work. Obviously her heart was in the right place. You get absolutely cheer for her in wanting into work and her point to how rose you know I caught so much hate for this us. Because there's there's this thing where people think they own movies. They own generation. The Own Franchise Star Wars ghostbusters. You fill in the blank here. And they were so bad to her online. Leslie Jones like you know she said to Howard. And I'm paraphrasing your shoes. You know I had so much pride in this you know all female cast ask and I was getting such awful comments online from other people such hateful things said and then I would click on the profile of these people saying awful things to me. Online about the ghostbusters reboot the all-female ghostbusters reboot. She said I would click on some of these people's twitter accounts our facebook pages and it would be a guy I with his daughter a father with his daughter a husband with his daughter. Saying the most mean spirited things about that the all female cast and I can tell you. That's the problem we're having today. Is that the fans think they can manipulate the movie. The fans that they have grown beyond the movie itself the product itself off and I just think it's very very dangerous ground and if you do get a chance to listen to that interview is really good like I said I'm GonNa be Mosey Jones Fan. She's really loud. I don't think there's a lot of creativity behind it. It's it's not for me but I really loved her sentiment. You know like I have these fathers of daughters seeing the worst nastiest things to me and ah she's right. She's so right because they should be cheering for her. They should be cheering for the female cast. So I've kind of appreciated the conversation again Howard's creativity ativity in in facilitating wonderful conversation with Lesley. It's just it's just interviewing at. Its very very best so to recap my five that you should see. Eighty five movie passes and you haven't seen anything peanut butter Falcon four versus Ferrari once upon a time in Hollywood yesterday and Joe. Joe Rabid of it Tonight I will be cheering heavily for once upon a time in Hollywood I will be cheering for versus Ferrari and I will definitely be cheering for for Joe Joe Rabbit.

"And they don't have to say anything so if you spend ten bucks just say on a Titanic and then I tunes for some reason stopped carrying. Titanic you lose. WHO's that money straight out? ENYA lose movies. Well read up on it Google. I tunes movie. They can take it away anytime from you. And that's a little bit disheartening for me because I'm watching movies on the treadmill. I'm watching movies everywhere. My iphone is is my you know. That's that's command central right there. I'm watching everything out of that. So yeah that's just a little disheartening. But anyways really happy for Brad Pitt really hope that he gets the recognition that he deserves. Tonight love him. I know he's been. He wanted to Golden Globes. He wants SAG. So there's a shot here. He could he could make three three so i. I'm really cheering for him. And I and I love Tarantino's passion Yes so a lot of good things here so coming into the last movie. I peanut butter on my list. Once upon a time in Hollywood would four versus Ferrari Joe Rabbit on the outside looking in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Tom Hanks's so good as Mr Rogers. Boy Boy I sneak have created a top six list not a top five list. I get it but I'm going with my top five. I'm giving you my concrete five. The last movie I I loved this movie and I get really pissed when people should all over this movie I hated it makes me furious. I get irate. And they do it all the time. I was watching a website that deals with sports and I know the guy doesn't watch many movies. He does pizza reviews. And that's great because she's a phenomenal. Talent Awesome entrepreneur talk about how much he hated needed. This movie like are you serious. Like you definitely don't watch a lot of movies and that's what bothers me. Most is when people that don't watch a lot of movies give feedback. Oh that sucks. Oh that was really good. Well how do you know that if you have nothing else to compare it to like if you're watching movies once every two months and you're like that was really good. That was really bad. Like there's no standard or point of reference to compare it to. I mean the only people should be talking movies. Are those that are there. They're watching movies all the time if you're not watching movies all the time and you shouldn't be talking movies. I'm sorry just I'm just really adamant about that. You just can't think of a podcast. It's very clear the host doesn't watch any of the material Israel has his guests are and whether it's a movie or TV show maybe want occasion but he uses against writing service. That's something completely different it is. I'm listenable and it's a little a few reasons one because the host but two and mostly because of this is because he doesn't know what he's talking about. I can't do a podcast about baseball and not have her watch the A game all summer. I get really furious when people comment on movies and they really don't do their homework they don't do the background research much. Like some of the Jaguars ars I've been hearing about lately. It just bothers me anyways that being said this movie. Yeah I don't WanNa go off on a tangent. I'm going to get get myself. Another hard issue ended up in hospital for over a week against so anyways this movie I thought was so good I hate reading. You know the Internet is so toxic. I ate it and sometimes I get sucked. Backed up into it. You know we have those star wars fan boys and Marvel Fan boys that are ruining things and wanting to rewrite movies. I've talked about that on numerous occasions but this method it's such a big heart to it and movies yesterday directed by the supremely talented one of my all time favorites. Danny Boyle Homage Amish Patel is in it. Louis James. This movie is so good and it stuck with me. I saw earlier in the early spring of two thousand nineteen. It really puts a interesting thing on the table. Right interesting question. You know how much influenced the Beatles have and now I don't WanNa ruin the movie for you but it. It doesn't just stop there. It goes into what is relevant and our culture and and would be the same without some of the things that we have in our life our lives that we that we so you know our our pop culture are our standards of entertainment. You know with things change. It really puts an interesting discussion on the table and it has one of the biggest surprises prizes. I guess in an ending that I've that I've seen this year I I loved yesterday. It was in my top five from start to finish. Some of these movies creeped in in and at the last minute I would say yesterday was in it for the longest amount of time. I've really loved this movie from the moment I saw and we had me in tears. Here's like I I left the theater. I'm like I just don't get how people are not talking about this or how somebody call it boring and I get it. It's all subjective. I forget it you know. My favorite color is green. Years is blue. You know we're both not right. I mean whenever I mean we think we think but I just think yesterday was not given the proper do it is so good. A master director some phenomenal actors. I loved it. I guess you're has a huge heart and you'll there some movies. You don't wait week for Netflix. For this was one of them. I felt like in definitely movie. I felt it didn't against property when in its respect there's other movies I wanted to touch on if I was to expand span my list beyond five. Here's what I thought was really good this year. I was really underrated doctor sleep. Dr Sleep was so oh good Joker I WANNA you know. Sleep on Joaquin Phoenix. I love him super talented guy. I think. Probably a good human being as well rocket man. Dan was in and out of this list. I love rocket man. If I had done this podcast. Four months ago it would have been my top five but it's definitely my top. Ten loved hair. Negative things a phenomenal actor. Huge future ahead of him. Just a great great movie parasite I would put my top ten. We are looking at some groundbreaking stuff happening in that movie. And if you're one of these people that decide whether they want to watch or not watch based DON subtitles. That's a scary thought for me like some of the best movies of all time have subtitles. That's like me saying you know what I can't watch movie. That's in black and white. That's just too much for me. I mean does sound really ridiculous when you think about it was parasites got a lot of things going for it including their amazing director. Her Bong Jun Ho. Just look at a guy that is groundbreaking There's one right there parasite fantastic jewel. I like a lot a lot on Netflix. Small documentary called. Tell me who I am. I had both guests on my show. I wouldn't put it in the you know. Obviously obviously Academy Awards are base. Most movies short films. That's more of a documentary. I loved that this year the most overrated I thought was nineteen seventeen. I I liked it a lot but one thousand nine hundred. Seventeen appeal doesn't come so much with the acting as it does with its cinematograph Ramos. Director her CNN days and Roger Deakins. That's the appeal to nine hundred. Seventeen and saving private Ryan is the standard of war movies. If that's like a ten not at ten or nine and a half hundred ten by comparison I put nineteen seventeen at like a seven. And a half. If you're basing on the cinematographer director mediate but yeah I I thought nineteen seventeen was a little overrated. I I don't cheer against things and cheer for other things but I hope nineteen seventeen doesn't win in every every movie. I'm mentioning. I highly recommend I stand by all my recommendations because I've actually seen the movies unlike other people I've seen what I'm telling you to watch and I love it right so so some other other appreciated movies that flew under the radar a little bit Captain Marvel seems to be taking a Lotta Shit for some reason. I liked that a lot. I really lead like bright burn. It's very superman-like but it makes you. When I say Superman you know raising a child? That's fallen from the sky. You know from a young child to an adult. It makes you wonder you know or what would happen if that child grew up evil and it's not necessarily a villain but it. It's it's the superman spin of what if life right. I Love Bright Burnham Mustangs Academy Award Worthy but. It's one of the better movies I saw this year. I liked double a lot. People crapped on it I'm not sure why but I really liked Dumbo. I think people are a little bit hard on Tim. Burton with this there was a good movie. overrated the Irishman. Has You no. I'm not gonNA say that again. I thought uncut gems a little overrated to be quite honest with you Adam sandlers a phenomenal actor. You'll never you'll never not sell me on that point I get. He's one of the best movies of all time he was so good in it One of the best performances I probably should say is more accurate statement. Lion King unnecessary remake Hustle I'm good thanks. I thought knives out was a little overrated little bit good movie. I I love Ryan Anderson. I am not big on the The WHO done it. Let's go through piece by piece kind of clue scenario death. More personal than against subjective It's a really well done movie and Ryan Johnson's a really really good filmmaker but it just not for me. It's just not for me in any way shape or form last year's winner green took so much shit other forget spike Lee other people crapping all over it. I really hope whoever wins tonight that there aren't people in the audience that are going to take away from that moment who we have no business doing that right like like beyond saying Jay Z.. Showing up an hour and a half late for the Golden Globes. While there's somebody up there getting an award like how disrespectful is that so. I hope there's nobody that takes away from anybody's moment today and I really hope there's people that just think their parents they thank you know a religion. Thanks the people they love. I hope we can say from politics. Because I've just about had it with Patricia. arquette up you're talking about how awful you know. Politics politics are at this point. I just it's a real turn off for a lot of people I have to say. Everyone's allowed to talk politics. I get it and I get. It's a huge stage to do so I don't know but just there's other other pressing oppressing people you can talk about those you love growing up. Who meant who meant the world to you? There's other things you could bring up in that moment. A mentor an acting coach a loved one. You've lost that meant the world to you and believe in you and no one else. There's so many other things you could be talking about. Yeah the environment and needs attention. But I just don't think this is the place to do that. Like it comes across as phony. Just my thing about the environment do your thing do it. Don't just make it about I'm up here. People can really person because my thirty seconds to a minute. I'm going to talk about the environment and then not do anything about it the rest of my life because that's what it seems like a lot of people are doing. I just really hope that people don't again one takeaway from the moment and to use the moment appropriately appropriately again. What is appropriately? I I don't think politics is in that stages is the right setting that just my two cents in full disclosure. There's a few movies move movies issue. That came out that I just will not watch based on it. Maybe this is being ignorant I'll own it. I refuse to watch. Cats are refused to watch men in black. I refuse to watch anything with Tyler. Perry at the end of it I mean I I was looking at stuff online. Apparently that movie had no editor This year Angel has fallen. I'm all set. I'm just some movies I just can't do. I mean I. I just feel like if if if the people that are making somebody's movies don't take it seriously. Then why should should I so. Yeah some of these movies homage Ez pass on and I can tell you mentioned Howard Stern earlier in in in Leslie Jones the former. SNL CAST member was on Howard it show and she was talking about Ghostbusters and it was really just a a great. I'm not Lizzie Jones Fan. I don't find funny. I don't don't find her comedy funny at all. I'm not a big.

"Is nominated it for a long shot to do really really well as long as the Irishman doesn't win. I'm good I mean. I don't cheer for bad things to happen to most people but but I just. I'm not a fan of the Irishman. I'm not a fan of this movie in any way. I think I've talked about this before it is so overrated. I do appreciate that. It's a good bye to these or a you know as far as acting together you know. Pacino Deniro PECI pitching him out of retirement. He he does a great great job. But you know it's just. I'm not cheering for the Irishman. Any way shape or form. I didn't care for Martin. Scorsese's comments on marvel movies or superhero movies. I thought there was way out of place. Robert De Niro is really weighing on me in every way shape or form in the last couple of years so anyways but Joel Radin would be an number five if I had to go with a tire six. I do not want to rule out a beautiful day in the neighborhood which I've done review on a Tom. Hanks so good. There's so many people involved with that. That have done a great job. The other movie I wanted to bring up not going to say it's four but my second one is peanut butter Falcon. I thought the movie was is the most overlooked movie right when you're ignored by SAG when you're a SAG awards ignored by the Golden Globes. And now you don't get anything for the Academy Awards. It kind of bothered me a little bit because this movie deserved something Michael Schwartz and Tyler Nelson. The two directors deserved something. I mean this was their their passion project. Shiloh is so good in this movie and start saying that the Shah is a top ten to fifteen actor. We just stop who start giving him that credit like he's no longer this guy. Let's assume as crazy that can kind of act. He's a fantastic actor. Let's just leave it there like he is so goddamn good. It's ridiculous and I don't think he gets enough credit for what is abilities can reflect. I mean he is just so good. I mean gene in the interview that I've kind of tease a little bit about this coming out this week. The cinematographer I had Nigel Block said Shaya comes was off the plane in his role. Ready to go I mean and he was so wrapped up in invested into this movie. So many people were you. Had you know the the boy with Down Syndrome Zach and God's again who to such a phenomenal job. I was hoping for a nomination for him and a peanut butter fom get really screwed. I mean movie. Visually looks phenomenal. The sound is great. The acting is phenomenal. I just I was really really disheartened that this movie was ignored by everybody. And it's I'm really starting to get worried about Out those people with votes. I'm starting to think there's there's many most people have a SAG card. I think I would like to feel the responsibilities. The ones I know when I talked to on occasion definitely watch what Dave vote for but I wonder how many people actually watch what they vote for. It just seems so political like websites are coming out you know now are reputable websites are coming out with. You know. I don't like this actor. I found this movie boring. They're they're giving something personal. That should to be voted on a public voice in other words. If you're an actor you can say sure. I loved this movie. I love them but we but to say this movie was boring into be critical and then go under. Anonymous seems just cowardly to me like I just hope. Sag voters take the responsibility seriously. A lot of people were very hard for these awards like some people. Never come back back to this stage again right the Academy Awards or a big thing and some people. I mean there's been actors that have Renee Zellweger tonight. She'll me they are. She hasn't been here in like twenty years. I think or it's been a long period of time. So so people come back over a lengthy lengthy period of time so people will come back at all so that really I just hope sagged borders take responsibility seriously in Nazi peanut butter and all that movie with Shiloh Buffalo. He's a big piece of this or piece of that. I'm not GonNa Watch that I'm Ignore that that's so unfair to him because he's the guy is a passionate actor he so honesty super supremely talented. I hope I hope SAG actors do right by each other other. I really do and and give every movie the the attention that they deserve right. I hated the Irishman and on a personal level. I could care less what Martin Scorsese thinks of marvel movies. As in what Robert Deniro things politically but I would still give everyone that worked really hard of movie the attention it deserves and I. I hope that's what goes on. I hope that people don't look at Shiloh often. Say Hey you know what I hate him. That guy's crazy he's this he's that he's whatever it just completely ignore that that would be so unfortunate to me if that's what's going on. I hope politics doesn't rear. Its ugly head. Hoping hoping part of Sag means that you're honoring the craft your honoring that piece of work and I hope that's what people do because I know the people I talked to do. The SAG voters talked to are taking very seriously. I just hope most people are like they are because i. It's scary when Internet. Reputable sources are leaking comments. Comments from Sadler's I I can't I can't do that. Bothers me a lot. So peanut butter falcon big disappointment deserve the nomination. It's in my top five for the year. No doubt what about it This movie has a heart and soul to it. That's almost unmatched. Please peanut butter Falcon I I I can recommend enough my third on my list. I again no order just throwing them out would be Ford versus Ferrari Christian Bale Matt Damon. My God This movie is I feel like this movie. People people feel like you know Christian. Bale is one so much that you know what the nomination is enough right. Because in some cases with movies and actors the nomination is the award right. Ebbing nominated is the recognition. It's not winning the award. I don't know. I think this is such a big budget movie. I don't want to call it. Underrated underrated or overlooked. But I think it is like I was watching this movie. I probably three or four times. Now they're over the weekend. The weekend came out. I don't know I feel like the nominations not enough here. So if Joe Joe Rabbit doesn't win I'm cheering for all things for versus Ferrari really loved this movie win. I just Matt Damon and in Christian. Bale are just so good at their craft. And I know I'm leaving a ton of people out right with these movies. I'm talking about just the headliners here but there's so many people involved I get that just really really well done movie. It's not you know. Race cars are racecar. RACECAR movies are a funny thing because I love. I'm obsessed with them. I love days of thunder. I loved rush. You Know Ron Howard's Racecar tribute movie. I love for versus Ferrari race card. NASCAR movies are kind of a funny thing up Talladega Nights. I can't leave out because as a sport I hate it. I can't stand watching it. But as when they're made into movies. I love just focusing on the driver's the competitiveness like I love it so Hollywood I love the Hollywood version of what they've done to race car movies. But as a sport if you call it that the turning left for four hours not a big fan I mean I i. I see boxing movies and I love boxing. Boxing on I'll watch it and I love Rocky Cinderella Man on and on it but it's such a strange thing with NASCAR I so my favorite movies of all time are some of the ones I just named and I can't. I've never watched an entire race for NASCAR or Formula One. And it's not the belittle those that are involved. I just. It's just so boring but what Hollywood is done to it as made it interesting for me and made it passionate for another reason why I love movie movie making and watching film so the next movie very similar very well known movies getting awards getting recognized. I Love Quentin Tarantino's passion. I think he's I just love his perspective and where he comes from in his what he feels about moviemaking. I remember reading about how used to work at like a blockbuster Mr or VHS store and that's kind of where questions love of movies originated in that blockbuster in that VHS store just going through movies like how do you not love that. How do you not love that? So that being said I have to include once upon a time in Hollywood. I love everything about this movie. Leo In especially Brad I pay Brad Pitt Fan. People don't remember this Brad Pitt. Early on was kind of people may not me other people made him sound like a joke. You know he's gray looking dude dude. Who can act kind of mocked film in Louise to some degree? Sorry like Brad. Pitt is a phenomenal actor. I'm so happy he's getting all the Kudos in this In his speeches are even ten times better like he is universally loved like in the same way like Ellen Degeneres says like university loved at some degree and I feel like Brad Pitt is like like that people. Just love him. He's poking fun at himself. He's giving these really awesome speeches and I'm pulling for him tonight as well. So yeah I mean if I had to categorize is it bouncing will replace your guys from trying to get this in by the time the award start. I'm cheering for once upon a time in Hollywood namely Brad Pitt tonight. I'm cheering for Joe Joe. Abbott and I'm cheering for four versus Ferrari. So that covers at least half the movies I think but seriously I think Brad Pitt is just come from us. He's just a phenomenal actor. I love to meet Joe Black. I loved him and just so many things. He's done fury with show against Shiloh buff. So he's done so many things I really. I can't say enough about Gwen Tarantino Bleed Art of the CAPRIO. I mean I'm not gonNA. He's just so good and everything he does as well. So yeah. I'm just Brad Pitt I I have. I have a real soft spot in my heart for him because I've liked him since day one. I've always loved all of his work and it's nice to see people saying good things things about him. People appreciating him because he is talented he and his so good in this movie as well. I just it's just a it's just a wonderful movie if I have to tell you to go see once upon a time in Hollywood and you haven't seen it already chances are you're not the biggest movie Fan but hopefully you can get to a rented soon because it is so good. I mean the movies like this should not how she your first time. Viewing should not be. Netflix should not be on Amazon. Prime should be on Hulu. I mean these are movies. You have to go and see Joe Joe Rabbit. I saw very very late and I think a week or two later was available on I tunes. But I'm the theater experience. Nothing compares to it. Nothing like don't get me wrong. I I own a ton of movies in my iphone on. You know by the way side. No- here for those of you. That buy movies on I tunes. Do you know that they could take the movies away on out out of your phone without you knowing..
"academy award" Discussed on Monday Morning Critic Podcast
"That is Jack White. And I'm a believer from the Joe Joe Rabbit trailer. The first first one in it is maybe one of the coolest songs I've heard in two thousand nineteen Welcome to the Monday morning critic podcast in the Academy Award Oscar edition in my top five movies of two thousand nineteen so everybody has a top five list. I get it for movies or top ten lists and everybody has a podcast now. Wow so I get that too in. Time is at a premium you know. I value the people who listen to podcasts. I value their time. If I'm going to put something out there I believe there's quality in it. I believe I'm not podcasting to hear my voice. Eight hearing my voice. I'm podcasting because I enjoy speaking with guests. It comes from and I said this a million times it comes from a place of passion passion in my heart. I really love doing this and I don't WanNa Waste People's time you know on the way to work. I've been thinking about this and I've been you know I work a few jobs in one of the things that I really really who I really enjoy listening to on the way to work Howard Stern and without giving you my full rundown over think of Howard. I'll break it down very simply. He is evolved. I think think no matter what field you're in if you're an actor director if your podcast or if you're a coach wherever you are I think you have to evolve. I think you have to look look at your product like many times. I'll look at it. I'll listen to and I hate my voice like I said but I'll listen to an interview. Only God that was a horrible interview. Sound was too loud. You're asking the same questions the fifth interview in a row. So that's why I try to evolve in shake things up I mean slowly but surely I think I'm getting there. I mean I have a lot of work ahead of me. I realized that but like like I said I value my listeners. Time I believe it's a premium and you know I do believe what I put out there is is is worth your time. It's worth your endeavor but but anyways my point about Howard stern is that he's evolves he. He hasn't stayed the same over thirty or forty years. You know he was the shock jock now if you listen to him he his his advice on anything it could be exercising or food. or how how. He handles his spare time. It just everything. That man does is so well thought out in detailed. I'm just envious of that. You know when he does call himself the king of all media he is he is the best interview on a plane. I mean he was interviewing and I think it was a show from the past. He was interviewing Miley Cyrus. Who I could careless about? I mean I don't hate her or anything like that but I could care less about the interview when I pay attention attention to a show like that I want to hear what Howard is asking. His guests like what is he getting. And it's it's just such a free flowing wealth auto clearly. Oh he does his homework or some of his staff they worked together in those meetings at Howard's always talking about nick craft the questions but they're so well done and it's clear how hard he's worked and his staff is working is he's just such a genius he so phenomenal interviewing and and I guess my point is in a long way. I I just feel like you know if I'm going to crash and burn I'm going to do so by putting putting effort in hardened to it in so far you know three or four years later podcasting. I think I've done a decent job. I'll put my. I've said this before. I'll put my guess quality against anybody and I and I feel like my podcast is certainly worth people's time. So I wanNA thank you for the time for listening and downloading the PODCASTS and coming back that it does mean the world to me so On that end I thank you. I am recording this about an hour and a half before the Academy Awards start. It's about six twenty five eastern right now on Sunday night. I am recording this with the hopes of getting it out at least before the Academy Awards telling you what I hope for giving you my top for two thousand my top five thousand nineteen and give you my thoughts about what I'm about to see in an hour and a half so it'll be interesting to see how close I am. I do have some great interviews coming up so stay tuned for that Before I get going if you guys want to contact me it's Monday morning critic on instagram Indian uh-huh MDM critic on twitter. Monday morning critic at gmail.com those are three ways. You can get a hold of me. The podcast available everywhere. stitcher apple podcasts. Whatever I usually posted on instagram?

I'm really looking looking forward to getting out some really quality content in the near future. You know I have a lot of great interviews coming up and hopefully you appreciate that. So thank you for those of you reaching out appreciate it all right all right. Let's do this so as I mentioned before. Everybody has a podcast now. Everybody has one now and I would say of that. One hundred percent podcasters. I would say say twenty to thirty percent of those. PODCASTS are actually listenable where you'd want to come back again. Writes like a restaurant Yate there once was a good. Would you come back again. Yes I would consider that eight good podcast. I believe my restaurant. My podcast is one where yes you would go back to eat again. There might be some slight bias behind that comment. But that's what I think And I'M GONNA. I'm a really harsh critic of myself. So that being said I have a guest coming on his name. Is Nigel Block. It's already the interviews. Already been recorded I have to some editing with some bouncing echoes and sounds and I have to edit it. So that's coming out this week module block is a fantastic cinematographer. He did the he was is the DP for the director of photography for Peanut Butter Falcon. He did a lot of work on Lord of the rings he his his amazing amazing filmography. So as with many guests I was listening to an interview that Nigel was doing. Another podcast and and I'm GonNa get this podcast named the host's name out there because I do want to give him credit he was he was in this the listenable twenty to thirty percent. He had Nigel honesty about a a year ago. And this podcast was so frigging good. The questions he was asking you could tell he so well-spoken you could tell get a love for cinematography movie making like when I listen to this pocket and like this guy loves what he does so to hear that. 'cause I don't always hear that and there's a couple of time I had. That are atrocious. It doesn't come from a place of love looking for a place a passion. It's just like why are you doing this like it doesn't even it's so unlistenable. As opposed to this podcast. I was listening to where he had Nigel Con. The guy was so good. And I'm going on the next episode. I will release that. PODCAST and the podcasts casts podcasters name because I have to give him credit he was so good and interviewing Nigel such it just so refreshing to hear another podcast or not the famous ones. I'm always talking about. You're not howitzers on a podcast. But you know him. The Joe Rogan's in the World Bill Burr. All those famous podcasters Adam. Corolla the little independent guys like me and people like us. It's nice to see them. See People like me just doing a great job. With what what they believe in what they love. It's just I love it. So Yeah my next interviews with cinematographer Nigel Block and I. I'm going to give credit to the podcast sir. WHO's interview I? I listened to before my interview with Nigel and getting some information and just really interesting thing. So I don't WanNa podcast so that being said everyone also has has a top five two top ten list and I would say forty six now since I've eight nine years old. I've been watching movies my whole life in washing over and over again. I'm the guy who went through. VHS tapes over and over again. I mean I think I went through like three field of dreams. Three or four of the natural Shawshank I blew through a lot of that. I just my point is I. I love movies as as many of you have noticed. Stand you know movies and TV race. Me Don't get me wrong. I I had two parents. Anybody could ask for like I am so fortunate that had that I had that I have a mom I have like like it's beyond words so I'm so happy with that but I'm also the nerd that was like that locked himself in the basement and and watch TV and watch movies at forty six years old. I make my way to the theater once a week to get up on things in my spare time. I'm watching shows keeping up with things so I think I don't WanNa see him an authority but I think when I say something thing. It's not just a flip comment. I see a lot I watched the Oscars now. And there's a Lotta these like guessing and pools and whatever with people that haven't seen any of these movies I just. I don't know what it's like before going into the NFL playoffs. If you don't follow football year in your betting on who's GonNa win the Super Bowl to me that lacks a little bit of legitimacy. So I don't know I think my top five list has some credit to it and the way I look at it is not so much what I think the top five movies of the year art. I look at it this way. If somebody had five movie passes in knowing what I know they said I need five movies to go to. These are the five that I'm going to name that I believe Steve are worth your money. Now that's not saying if I had to go to ten. There's a whole `nother category but I'll keep it short and I wanNA keep this podcast episode short and sweet. I I look at it my head is when I give the top five. What what would I tell somebody else to either? Spend their money on or use a movie pass on if they can only see five so that being said here are my five movies. I'm going to start with one of the ones I saw in two thousand twenty but it's a two thousand eighteen release that I will be cheering like hell for tonight in. That movie is Joe Joe Rabbit. I absolutely loved Joab. It is in my top five and I'm not giving us specific civic order right. It's just here are the top five. I went back and forth so if I had I I really kind of battled with a tie for number five because I with my first one because I really a beautiful day. The neighborhood would be if I had to go tie would be here but I give a slight edge to Joe Joe Rabbit it both movies. Believe it or not are kind of the same in the sense that both are just about humanity and kindness and just love and I know it's weird to say that about joab movie who a kid who who's make believe friend is Adolf Hitler but the movie has such an enormous heart take a great soundtrack phenomenal acting. Sam Rockwell is another stratosphere at this point in Taiko. It director who also plays Adolf Hitler in the movie is I absolutely like so caught off guard with his performance. Like I mean he hits a home run at two different roles hormones director and then he hits hormone is playing Adolf Hitler. I mean it's just so so well Diana writer for that matter I mean he is so immensely talented a breath of fresh air on what we do in the shadows is also a vampire movie that he's done as well also. There's two kids in this movie. That are so good. This movie just makes up on you and I had a tough time deciphering between this movie. Joe Oh Joe Abbott and Beautiful Dan. The neighborhood I mean. They're so similar as far as the message. They're trying to send about humanity. Eighty and just valuing people valuing life valuing what people should mean to each other. They're so similar in in that way. And I really hate separating East I want you to know that I hate it but I would absolutely recommend a beautiful neighborhood it because it's so damn good Joe. Rabbits snuck up on me and I hope it kicks ass tonight. I hope it cleans cleans up in every award.

"Are you looking at this week? Yep putting together a small cap report for the Augmented Reality Service in I am going to feature limelight networks in this report ticker is L. L. N. W.. This is a small cap right about a six hundred million dollar market cap but they are in the business of digital content delivery in the utilize edge computing to do that and what is edge. Computing is as Steve well in simplest terms. It's just bringing the cloud closer to us and reduces latency we download and stream more stuff So it's business. I'm looking into learning more about their customers. Operate Media Entertainment Gaming Technology and they have a big customer in Amazon who accounted for approximately thirty percent of revenues last year. Some trying to ascertain ascertain what the competitive advantages here or. If it's just something that could ultimately BE WIPED OUT BY BIG TECH Steve Question about limelight. Networks seems like a very very crowded space. What's the one thing they can do to stand up? Well I think you know deliver that content as quickly and as vibrantly as possible right. I mean when you're streaming and you've got a good picture and zero latency that really stands out for consumers. I'd say I'm not saying it's on the level of data dog but that's a good name limelight. Now that's a good thing makes me think of rush. Ah Baby Andy Cross. What are you looking at this diva one that you might have heard of Moody's Symbol M. C. O.? One of the largest credit ratings analysis firms fixed income and debt instruments has a basic duopoly with. SNP where they have more than eighty percent market share recommendation in our moneymakers service because it makes a lot of money and has exceptionally high profit margins margins they can price their their debt ratings they can increase the prices three to five percent of the year sales at about thirty times on the earnings front eleven time CEO also had a magnificent run stocks seventy percent for the past year or so. I'm with looking for a little bit of a pullback but Wanna see what they have earnings next week Steve Question About Moody's ladies. How much should investors rely on these ratings? WELL IF YOU'RE A debt instrument investor a lot. I mean they have to buy most of them require to have the debt instruments means rated before they combined them so I think it's important to look at them and understand them. Standard and Poor's has the five hundred index. How come Moody's doesn't have an index? They probably need when they do have a little moody's analytics politic spins which is growing really rapidly not as good as an index Moody's Limelight Networks Empire State Realty. You've got one you want to add to your. Watch US There Steve. Let's go to New York. Ron All right trip. We filmed that because I have a totally watch road trips to all right wrong. Cross Jason Moser.

"Jason Moser Andy Cross and Ron Gross. Good to see was always gentlemen Chris. We've got the latest headlines from Wall Street. We will get an Oscar Oscar preview from our guest now Minot always. We've got a few stocks on our radar but we begin with another one of the tech giant's alphabets fourth quarter profits came in higher than expected shares of Google's parent company. Up a little bit this week chasing overall revenue was light but there is a lot to like an escort. Yeah there was plenty to like. I think This was this was a quarter where you know they. They released the Youtube and cloud revenue data for the first time. Ever and you know we were talking in an production here. I think any. You're you're saying something eventually. It was going to have to probably had to do that. but regardless I think that's probably the clearest sign yet to me at least they have no intentions of spinning these businesses out from Google alphabet anytime soon I think it really helps offset what is probably one of the bigger points of scrutiny. That we Hold on the company quarter and on the other bets segment Let's look at Youtube reached. Fifteen billion dollars ad revenue in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred thirty six percent vermeer ago they also ended two thousand nineteen at a three billion dollar annual run rate in youtube subscription revenue and other non advertising revenue so really that's on top of the advertising revenue that just shows you how how big youtube has gotten to this point. Google cloud still performing very well ended at ten billion. Our run rate for the year to put that in context Amazon web services choked up about ten billion dollars for the quarter. So there's still plenty of of Shared a capture there. But the good news is that Google cloud what is actually growing at a faster rate than aws. So they are picking up share as Ron was talking about last week But going back to to the date on Youtube in the cloud services as you need they strike a little bit of a defensive tone. It seems quarter-on-quarter out on the call with the other bet segment. That's good reason. It brought in six hundred fifty nine million dollars in revenue avenue for the year I lost a better than four and a half billion dollar. So there's clear. There's clearly a disconnect there as I understand their defensive tone But when you now have a light to shine on youtube and Google cloud I think that really takes away from from focusing so much on the money that they're losing any other pets segment. Yeah with sooner Pichai. Now the CEO of Alphabet who was a former C. of Google he clearly had interest in and knowledge of what was going on with Youtube. So they they had they they eventually would have. I've had to disclose the revenues for YouTube still very impressive. Fifteen billion dollars run rate of revenue. The analyst were expecting a little bit higher. So I think there's some good conversation about wow it'd be maybe youtube revenue wasn't so high but I agree with you. Jason on the subscription and other revenues around Youtube. That's pretty exciting. Can we start a campaign to change the name back to go. I would much rather I'm Kinda had it. You know what we've not seen a lot in the headlines. They remember they bought a little company called Fitbit recently while that acquisition position has not closed genius. It's going to close and you have to wonder what exactly they plan to do with it. They're they're convinced. It's going to add Strong capabilities abilities not only in wearables for them. But it's going to advance their vision of ambient computing for the android ecosystems ultimately. They're just we're just GONNA walking computers right. They feel like fitbit has a role to serve there. So it'll be very interesting to see over time. How they work fit it into their business model but there is yet? I think there's definitely potential there. There's clearly a market out there for folks who WanNa wear these devices on their wrist weather. It's a watch or a fitbit or something else. I say we changed the whole company name to fit. Well there you go promise. uh-huh all Disney off to a solid. Start in its new fiscal year. The first quarter report was highlighted by the number of subscribers to Disney. Plus Ron very very impressive. Twenty eight point six million Disney subscribers significant increase from the ten million that they had the day after it was launched in US and Canada. It took took net flicks about two years to cross that. Twenty eight million mark so Nice job guys over there Now about half the subscriber's that Netflix has domestically basically we saw good subscriber growth who an ESPN as well subscribers at Hulu at thirty million ESPN plus Seven and a half million so really really strong. Start there Other divisions though are doing really well overall revenue for the company up thirty six percent. The parks inexperienced division of Nine Percent Studio Studio entertainment really strong on the rise of on the heels of the rise of skywalker and frozen to District Media Unit up twenty three percent. Everybody doing really well the unit that houses the streaming business reported a loss which you would expect because they're spending lots of money to get this done and they're going to continue to have have a loss for a few years going out but that's the real value of what Disney brings unlike any other Kumble other than net flicks the value of having that diversified diversified revenue stream with all the different businesses. They can price Disney. I mean they priced as exceptionally low Disney plus exceptionally low. That was obviously a huge driver of so many of the subscribers scribner's as as well as the content and the brand of course but the ability for them to do this and the fact that they can because they have the other diversified revenue. Streams has really uh impressive part the Disney Stock Story. Don't sleep on baby Yoda because it is coming back. And it's extremely popular. It is it is and I mean I think we hear a lot all the people talking about the price being so low and when are they gonNA raise prices and I actually think is GonNa be a while before they raise prices and one of the reasons for that is because right now they don't. I don't have a lot of new content right. I mean they have a couple of series I mean all of that Disney content is great but one thing I will say about that that platform they need to come out with some some fresh new content in order to keep people engaged until they do that. I think we'll be able to overlook it because only paying six bucks a month for a but it's I it all leads me to believe that. I don't know that they're going to be raising prices on at anytime soon. I would look over the next couple of years for them to build that content library at with new engaging content which they just don't really have a lot of right now. I probably should note that Shanghai Disney and Hong Kong Disney have been affected by the corona virus. There will be a rather significant economic impact impact that it will be short term hopefully and shouldn't affect the thesis of Owning Disney shares of pinterest nearly twenty percent this week fourth quarter profits came in much higher than unexpected and Andy. Strong quarter for Pinter's but it also seems like they could use a couple more these. Yeah my radar sock from last week. the third quarter was not nearly impressively guided For the for the rest of the year not to be that great in that reverse now in the stock as you mentioned. Chris had a really nice Jump after the earnings came out a really nice quarter revenues up forty six percent international revenues were up more than two hundred percent About three quarters of the users are international but from the revenue per user user basis international was far smaller than the US is in general us. Revenues up thirty six percent monthly active users for the quarter as total up twenty six six percent that was an acceleration off the quarter of last year. The growth fair mostly on the international side of thirty five percents so the revenue per user is one that yeah I can can you to watch that for the quarter with a dollar twenty two that was fifteen percent International very strong but the international is only a fraction of the US. US is at four four dollars per user. Internationals had about twenty one cents so obviously a lot of interest in a lot of can they continue to monetize their entire platform pinterest entire platform but really across the three hundred and thirty five million users. They have so many international can they continue to monetize international Acid they have and if they can. Then the stock's GonNa do pretty well the next five years. PINTEREST is a fifteen billion dollar company. There was a stretch of time where pinterest looked like an attractive attractive enough business but not a dominant enough business that it was a potential acquisition target. Fifteen billion it kind of seems like it's moving out of the range where a big Tech Company and alphabet or someone else would come in and try to buy them. They've really interesting platform because it is so it's advertising driven although they are pushing more and more towards more direct consumer revenues. They're going to be launching. This verified merchant program so you can buy directly from trusted brands Jason. They have an oncoming augmented. Reality Business this that there that the service that there that people can try on like say makeup for example and see how they look. So they're growing this this very visual platform and it's very impressive but they will have to monetize ties it but I think generally someone could still look at this business. Hey at the right price. That might be an interesting aquisition. If they can monetize that perhaps the newly named fitbit would be in all of the social platforms. Though the data out there is pretty clear. Pinterest is the one that impacts consumer behaviour mean people actually make purchasing purchasing decisions based on Pinterest more so than any of the other platforms. Which is why? I'm not surprised that it's that it's grown the way it has It seems to me like it would be an attractive attractive acquisition target more so than some of these social plays that are just add plays yeah to video. Game companies reporting on Friday activision Blizzard's fourth quarter. The prophet came in higher than expected pushing the stock to a fifty two week high but take two interactive stock falling ten percent on Friday after a rough third quarter report. Although although to be fair Ron take two interactive. Had a tough cop when you think about just how big this quarter was a year ago for. Sure let's take them one at a time activision as you say much better unexpected Revenue and profits although they were down from from this time last year but they were still much better than expected on the heels of huge success of call of duty modern warfare call of duty mobile installs exceeded one hundred and fifty million.

"academy award" Discussed on 1A
"Seventeen Fan Mendez once upon a time in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino the parasite Bongino man. That was actress. Lisa Ray announcing the nominees for best director. This is not a new debate in the nearly one hundred year. History of the Academy Awards awards. Only one woman has ever won best director. That was Kathryn bigelow for the hurt locker. Back in two thousand and nine and since the Hashtag Oscarssowhite took took over twitter and the Internet in two thousand fifteen the academy has opened its doors two more women and more people of Color. Still some are asking. If it's Been Ben enough are the Academy Awards really changing and to be blunt. Does this really matter is the academy as a ninety year old institution still relevant today. Is it relevant to how we enjoy movies joining from Baltimore. Maryland is April rain. Diversity and inclusion advocate cultural commentator and creator of that Oskar so white Hashtag that took over the Internet April. Welcome to one A.. Thanks for having me a joining us from Los Angeles is Steven Galloway executive features editor at the Hollywood reporter and recently named Dean of Chapman University. Dodge College of film and Media Arts Steven Galloway. Welcome to you thanks so much and also also joining from NPR in New York is Hunter Harris Associate Editor for vulture at New York magazine. Hunter welcome to you. Hi thanks for having April your reaction. Listen to this year's Oscar nominations writ large sure. My reaction was disappointed but not surprising. As you mentioned the the Academy of Motion Ocean Pictures Arts and Sciences the folks who run the Oscars committed to doubling the number of people of Color and Dublin doubling the number of women within its ranks by this year. Twenty twenty they. They hit their mark with respect to people of color going from eight to sixteen percent but clearly. This is woefully short as compared to the demographics of this country where people of color are closer closer to thirty nine percents And unfortunately the academy was woefully short with respect to women going from just twenty five percent to thirty two percent when women represent almost half or a little bit more than half of the population in this country. So if you carry the one town is still eighty. Four percent whites and sixty eight percent male and what I think your listeners really need to know is that academy members are not required to view the films and performances Mitsui's before the vote which means that they can base their vote on anything their favorite actor actress director. Something that they just saw him one of the trade journals also just whatever they were feeling that particular day but not based on their performance or politics. I mean they get lobbied for these votes to absolutely it. It also depends on whether they've actually actually seen the film and gotten the screeners from the the studios right and so if we know that's the case then what we're really talking about with respect to the academy and other award shows because it's not just the Oscars but is a popularity contest amongst older white men. Stephen Your reaction to the academy to the nominee. Good points About the fact that they're not required to watch the movies and one of the problems with this race with there's a very narrow narrow window In the woods season you usually lost forever and people COMPLA- and so they have tried to tighten the timeframe and what life from a lot of the cabinet members is. We just didn't have time to see everything. So what happens is the big pictures and the ones with a huge marks coast which means basically the studio films and the net swift movies. They get seen. Because they're at the top of the pollen people and people say well I if I hadn't seen once upon a time I'm in America with the Irishman Or marriage story. I should for more independent films that they're not hearing about they go to the bottom of the pile so you see an extraordinary honey boy from Amazon and people haven't seen it and if they do sit there actually seeing the wrong circumstances doc because he's difficult and demanding films on easy to watch on television screens so even if you do pulp in your DVD. It's very hard to stick with them. and in the case of honey boy which I absolutely terrific film. I had reluctance to see it because in Mike Job There are so many films. have to see you go through screening off the screening off the screening. And it's something isn't getting the right boss. Also the right push. You don't see tracks only because the head of Amazon studios called me and said I will sit with you to watch this that I did. And it's is probably my favorite year boy if you think that Americans across the country sometimes vote when they're uninformed who knew how much it happens in the academy when people are voting on the Oscars. Kevin agrees with you. Stephen Kevin says the Academy Awards are less at measurement of outstanding performance more a measurement a successful studio marketing campaigns. James Hunter Harris. Why are people upset about this year's nominees in particular? I mean last year you had Black Panther you had if beale street could talk and Black Klansman all what for awards all great films. What happened this year? I think this year. You know the disconnect between what viewers are seeing really responding to an audience a really loving And what the academy is choosing to honor or not. Honor is especially stark. There were so many movies this year directed by women directed by people of Color Like honey honey boy. Like the for well like Hustler's movies that you know people really cared about responded to that just did not see Nominations when they were announced. And so I think you know that the fact that the studios the studios are making more of an effort to empower women and empower people of color color artists. But at the same time Kademi is really We're not seeing the response. Writ large is You know disappointing and also disheartening. Hunter Michael says this. It's interesting if companies don't back scripts written by and performed by women and people of Color. There will be very little of it in the awards in other words. They're not in the pipeline. The awards are limited to WHO's eligible. This isn't about the Oscars this is about the industry and which scripts get green lighted. I mean I think we hear that all the time that if you know people aren't making movies by Artists that are unrepresented. Than how can they be nominated but at the same time I mean this year specifically I think the outcry cry was pretty swift and harsh because there were so many movies record by women. There were so many movies directed by people of color coded by International Directors. You know worse such quality but at the same time it just wasn't reflected And I think change could happen much faster. I think it's important to note that as we're talking about diversifying I find the Kademi and inviting more people and bring in more voices to be award sort of machine It does happen by the branches of the KADEMI itself Lake. The you know actor director producers you know all of these. We need to repair all of these individual categories and Not just like it's not simply a matter of overall inviting a lot of people into the academy but making sure that these specific categories are reflective of of their own on industries in their own communities so we spoke to the academy. They gave us some numbers around their diversity. Efforts the Academy says in Twenty nineteen their incoming membership class was fifty percent percent women twenty nine percent people of Color. They also said that in every year since two thousand sixteen the number of women nominated has doubled. That's according to the academy. We're we're going to talk a lot more about this and talk about some of the films out there that could have maybe should have been nominated April. Rain Creator of Oscarssowhite is here Steven Galloway alloway with the Hollywood reporter and Hundred Harris of New.

Oh nominated for Eleven Academy Awards including Best Picture Best Director and best actor for your consideration. The right costume can tell you a lot about characters in the movie where they come from what they aspire to what they value essentially who they are. My as Rubio knows how close can more or less US speak born in Mexico City. She's the first Latina nominated for an academy award in the Costume Design Category. It's for her work on the World War Two satire tire Joe Joe Rabbit like any period film. This one required a lot of research. The frame contributor Andrea Gutierrez has the story. This is the Mak- AK- of costumes in America. wisened Mass Rubio is giving me a tour of Western costume a massive costume house north. Hollywood right right under the flight path for Burbank airport and it's clear. She spent a lot of time here. Jeff how are you good. Thank you thank you Taylor. In the whole town it was a costume designer. And this is not a store. It's an archive western costume open. More than one hundred years ago. And it's been making renting out and cataloging cataloguing costumes so fragile. They don't make this kind of a this kind of lace anymore. We're hearing a windowless building building. Among rows and rows of garment stock. Two and three high bail is right at home among the racks. This this is a an overall. Well I mean look at this this one the attack. It's very old so this is what they marked it but but this come a lot earlier. Nineteen Yeah probably. This is where to build it a lot of research. Joe Rabbit A so-called anti-hate satire satire about Nazi. Germany seem to the eyes of a ten year old boy who sometimes gets advice from his imaginary friend. Adult Hitler now they call me a scared. Rabbits let them say say whatever they want. People used to say a lot of nasty things about me. Oh this guy's lunatic look at that psycho. He's going to get us all killed. This is a little bit of second film with writer and Director Tyco. It who also plays the Nazi dictator Adolf. We'd like to call it. Although we don't like to use you know the toward the look. Look of the film was key. In establishing child's viewpoint Rubio worked whites hedy production designer of Vincent and director of photography. Muelheim Marie Junior to develop the film's vivid Color Palette especially when it comes to Joe Joe's mother Rosie played by Scarlett Johansson Decline in Roosevelt's layer our callers. That did you know that the intention of course where to show how a child looks except his mother and would demand more is like when you look when you have a memory of your mother a flash memory all you remember it's just a more vibrant colors. Bright eight colors and warm tones fade and turn cold as reality sinks in for Joe but he was Rubio's love and extensive knowledge of textiles styles that really put her in the head space of the characters. We wanted to show pieces that were love to hear in every character of of the movie. Every they've cut there should have a piece that it'd be mean so much today for Rosie. Wh what was the piece that meant the most her. I think that going to Rosie's easy sweater looks Cozy Linden. It's got a bold zigzag pattern and brown and blue against a mint green background. There's a hand that quality to it while also being chic wearing it. Rosie stands in stark contrast in Jo-jo in his khaki uniform of his fictionalized Nazi youth. I grew I wanted to sing that. She got that sweater because Sonia the Looney had a Dixie bit than and say Oh look issue where where this. There's no bigger inspiration for Rosie style than the Ukrainian French artists. Sonia Delaunay her bowl textile designs of the Early Twentieth Century might have been known to an artist. Type like Rosie and is echoed in Zigzag of her sweater vail mapped out an entire. Hire backstory for Rosie. She was an actress in an important theatre company. Her friends were all artists and she liked to go dancing and her distinctive two-tone shoes but it wasn't until the last minute that the color of her shoes was decided until the day before shooting in the first time the shoes. We were undecided. Indecisive of like what do we do then take us it. That's it we're going for. The riches Rubio collects textiles wherever she travels from flea markets around the world. They're like oils for her canvas. Her memory of them encyclopedic. It's that knowledge and our familiarity with a great costume houses Italy and Germany. They gave her the tools. No which pieces to rent in which to me. This is the most creative Part of Within cost him this. This is with all these like Nancy. And how this whole sad. They all have been in western costume for such a long time data execute execute our our sketches. This sensibility of constructing and deconstructing is something Rubio has cultivated since she was a child growing up in Mexico. Texaco city was about five. You know when we were like playground We were a group of a little girls and we will play anything but always wanted to say jess but first we're going to dress up for that now. We don't have time for Split now. We have to get into the costumes so you craft put them into the costume. Before we were playing any game might discuss. The as she was then known was only twenty when she moved to Los Angeles in the early eighties. She couldn't afford her dream school so she ended up at trade tech a community college which probably gave her a better understanding of pattern making and garment construction. Mr Might Right. Otherwise have gotten. She ended up in Italy because of Bruno to bail her husband in an accomplished production designer himself who passed away in twenty eleven he. He was one of her greatest cheerleaders as she worked her way up in costume design and when no doubt revel in her current success he'll be organizing parties and and make it. You know all kinds of crazy wonderful things to celebrate who will be very proud proud of her Academy Award Board Nomination for the frame. I'm drag Zeros. And one final note about Joe Joe Rabbit Costumer Maya's why is Rubio. She already won the prize for Excellence in period film from the costume designers guild. And that'll do it for today.

Nineteen calling it unmoving that can and will stand the test of time. Joaquin Phoenix mesmerizes. In the performance of the Year now nominated for Eleven Academy Awards and eleven BAFTA awards awards including best picture director. Todd Phillips and Actor Walking Phoenix. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn and today we're revisiting. My conversation with South Korean filmmaker bond June hogue parasite which he directed and Co wrote could make history this Sunday as the first foreign language film to win in the Best Picture Oscar. This past weekend Bong Jun Ho won the original screenplay prize from the Writers Guild of America and earlier the screen actors Guild Honored Honored Parasite with this award for outstanding performance by a cast. Bong who is also nominated for best director spoke with me at the telluride film festival. The filmmaker was with his translator. Sharon Choy and as we watch people enter the theater where parasite was about to be shown. I was curious to ask him if he ever goes just to see his films with the general public hungers unborn US Cassette Colorado. So I actually did go to a theater in Korea once I wore a hat and and I was very sneaky about it and I wash the film amongst the audience and it was a very fun. Experience I got to see their response is immediately And I felt a sense of pleasure from Keio pick on get continued. And I also felt this compulsion to almost spoil the the story for the audience sitting next to me as well. I want to ask you about parasite because my understanding is you originally wrote it for Earth Theater and not for film is that right coup yongle years is most so it wasn't as if I wrote the script for a theater. Production per per se I originally came up with the idea toying with how it would be to put two houses on stage and that was how the idea began but I quickly realized that film is the right medium for me and so from the very beginning I wrote the script for this green so when you say two houses on top top of each other kind of upstairs downstairs does that mean the idea for this movie comes to you. Visually I that maybe the rich family is up here in the poor families down on there and then you fill in the store. Do you see it first before you start to write it immed- There's this whole gator said because I'm a writer director dirt even from the script writing stage. I already had all the structures of the space mind. Redesigned I was writing the script and for Snow Piercer. The class was divided with the tail cars in the front cars. And with this film I wanted to align Different classes vertically does jump in here in his two thousand thirteen film. Snow Piercer. Bongino created this to stow PIA on a train or the haves and the have nots are clearly separated by the front front and back of the train and at one point a character played by Tilda swinton visits the unruly class in the back and lays down the law. What is the body of the holes back throws them day? We all of us on this train of life remain in our allotted station. We must Egypt's occupying our preordained particularly physician in parasite the divisions are defined not by a train cars. But by real estate. How Nice your home is and in Korea whether or not your place has a basement of Jesse Beagle? God's Donald Trump in Korea compared to homes in the states. Basements are very rare and I think basements provide a lot of layers ears. That you can't always predict I think when poor people look at rich people you always get a sense that we don't know everything about the rich for poor families as everything seems to be exposed But there's this lack of information that you feel regarding rich. People always feel like their secrets and layers to them that we can never discover. Discover when you have an idea in your mind of what the places they're living in look like and then you go to find those places. It can sometimes be difficult. The House that a lot of this story unfolds in is an amazing piece of architecture and it's also separated from the rest of the world just by a door that there is this kind of rich person's Utopia on one side and the ordinary world. Right behind it. How important was it for you to find the right house because the house is almost its own character in this? CB's unload tune in on Katie. Tobol to keep her Tibia. Why haven't you as you said? The houses are very important characters in the film in particular the rich house Most sixty percent of the story happens in that house so we actually built the houses we knew from the beginning that it would be impossible to find the locations so with the production designer. We built the houses onset even the whole neighborhood. The poor courtown is this all rebuild and also not Goo Goo GUAC kept on and also doors and staircases. Air Cases are very important elements in the film the sort of new world and you layer that opens up when you open a door and the meaning behind going up and down the stairs. It's very significant for this film. And so we discussed a lot about doors and stairs with the production designer and the cinematographer. We're talking with rector. Bon John Hoult about his new film parasite outdoors at the telluride film festival. The poor family in parasite are pretending to be people that are not and part of the joke. DOC is. They're better at doing those things. Then maybe the people that's rich family would hire in terms of tutoring in terms of driving. They're better then. The people they would have ordinarily brought into their lives. They're totally qualified. Yes Oh coo coo duties hush hush about Chung hair. That's a very sharp point because they're actually very properly normal and capable people they're smart and they're capable but despite that they still don't have jobs and I think that's the sad part about economic inequality all over the world these days It's not that they're dumb and stupid that they don't have jobs and yet the kims the poor family understand the rich family in ways that maybe the rich family doesn't even understand themselves. They have a way to assimilate and ingratiate themselves themselves. That family that doesn't really work in the reverse direction right that they understand what privilege means to operate in that world even though they have no experience. What's in it to win go? They got the knee and they're talking about a very fascinating question and it's a question that I wanted to hear I think think for the rich family. it's not that they can't understand it's more they just don't really want to know the line about not crossing the line. It's about someone Not Liking someone intruding that line but it's also about not wanting to look beyond that line as well the all they WANNA see is they're comfortable environment Huawei no way climax sequences Michael Look at Petra genetic sequence to Jamaica new really get a sense of that in the film's climax. It happens very fast and hectic but you really see them operating within the lines that they arbitrarily draw for themselves even if something is like one inch beyond that line they they. They treated US something that belongs to another universe another world and I think that's very intimately tied to the theme of this film. When I think about parasite I think about the host? I think about Snow Piercer. I think about OCA- There are so many fantastical elements to all of those films and they're difficult to categorize and yet they all seem to be about real world issues they can be about consumption they can be about class struggle. They can be about families. Do find a storyteller that sometimes the more extreme story becomes the more real it can play that and those channel. So it's not as if I intend to make particularly political film with propaganda. My effort is always to delve into the really mundane aim small daily issues that surround me but once I delve into those issues I find myself ending up in a dark cave of capitalism and so it doesn't happen because because I wanted to but I just end up dealing with those issues. My goal is always making funny movie. Your film snow. Piercer was a critical success in China and abroad but parasite was recently removed from China's first film festival. Because of technical reasons. How how do you think about how your film? And this particular received in different countries even countries they may not welcome it tomb Goo gone to cut him to run. Tim You gonNa tell. China's always very difficult to predict but we do have a Chinese distributor who acquired the film and I think that they must have done it Because they have certainty that it will be released in theaters But you just you can never predict the government or the Communist. Party's decisions for China. But I do hope that one day it can meet. Chinese audiences. Parasite became the first Korean film to win the palm at the Cannes Film Festival. What does that mean to the film? What does that mean to you? And what does that mean to Korean cinema. Motorists see Turkey Hungary chimtal picture new sale community century. Komo so this year marks one hundred anniversary of Korean cinema and a lot of people discuss this award as a historical gift to celebrate. It and I think it was an incredible league coincidental. Amazing gift but I do think that Korea should have received give this award earlier. There have been a lot of amazing Korean film. Directors like Kim Jong who directed the house made and I think relatively compared to Japan and China Korean films were spread to the Western world a little bit late And of course personally. I consider this award a huge honor but I try my best to Work so that before and after this award things really haven't changed as much even before this award. I was working on two three projects. And I'm trying to calmly continue on with those projects. Sure enjoy and Bon John. Hoult thanks for coming on the show..

"Is Christmas Carol there, you go one of the traditional and you said we should go see it or if we get a chance in today's the last day. Yeah. So you better look it up now and go, right? Okay. It's just the beginning though, kind of holiday movie season. Right. What are we looking at there? They always put out some of their best movies between thanksgiving and January first because it's close to the time when people do nominations all the awards things in of course, the big awards the Academy Award and the Academy Award nominations. But for some reason, they are not they would usually in most years like say home alone, which kind of has the most consecutive weeks as number one for Christmas movie ever. I think it was like thirteen weeks relevant nominal. They're not releasing anything, really big. I mean, we've seen widows and green book the favorite is coming out a period piece. It's going to be I think at the high point maybe the Tivoli, but you're not seeing any big titles yet they seem to be holding them back cut around between the twelfth and the seventeenth. So what do we have to look forward to the bad news is the high point is not going to do their Christmas movie thing they usually do on three Saturdays in a row why? Well, they wanted to but the fine folks at Marcus theatres and no offense to them they've gotten the rights to some of the best and biggest Christmas films. And so the high point get him this year, I'm talking about the polar express national importance Christmas vacation white Christmas and miracle on thirty four street, and it's a wonderful life which they've been playing for the last two weeks. So you can go see him, but the highpoint, unfortunately, couldn't get the rights to him. So there was some things worked out. One of the things that strange about this year is they're releasing the seemed to be releasing some of their bigger titles very very late in the Christmas movie season alike. Dr Seuss's the Grinch Marto engines Spiderman into the spider verse Mary Poppins, which I'm really looking forward to seeing. And I'm not sure why. Aqua man Bumblebee. And I guess a lot of these like Poppins and Bumblebee and Spiderman in the in the Grinch easier all kind of reissues of a theme. We've no we know. And there's nothing new or in Hollywood than an old, title and script. It's been successful. That's for sure defend though, that I'm looking forward to the most is vice the movie Bali Cheney. Oh, yeah. That'll be interesting me the have nailed his story. And his story is much more interesting than anybody is really realized who is not in the Washington political scene. I think this movie's going to get a lot in the nation's in a lot of the words, I think it's going to be kind of a sleeper. So. Again movies. I'm looking forward to. But I wish there were one or two or three better titles than we've had 'cause it's not the best Christmas movie season. I just they're going to go out and watch old once again. Well, yeah, I've already been to the big, hey, you know, if you I saw. It's a wonderful life on the big screen digital copy. Doug was a brand new movie. There's something more you can get into the movie better sitting in one of those larger seats in front of a big screen and watching that movie you see little things that you didn't see anywhere else before. And I really really enjoyed it. And again, Dr Seuss the grandch- Martin. Engines Spiderman in the spider verse Mary Poppins, aquaman Bumblebee and vice to go along with widows green book and the favourite which are three movies. I think our big films already. All right. Thank you very much. So you at the men's game today Saint Louis university plays at two right and thirty two they demand play at two thirty the women at five, and it's Mizzou today with women's a lot of people down there.
