"Marvin, I have to say I'm a little disappointed in you this morning for the first time ever. You can not say that back to school is a better movie than caddyshack. From pure star power to quote abilities throughout life, I have never heard anyone walk down the street or on a golf course, say triple lending. So and don't get me wrong, you have an underrated performance from Robert Downey Jr. and back to school even bird young steals the show in some of those scenes. It's a classic comedy. But to say that it's better than caddyshack, it's a little bit of blasphemy. But Marvin is younger than us. He grew up in a different time. I mean, I don't agree with Marvin. And Marvin hasn't had a good first hour of this show. I mean, he totally screwed up who's going to sing the anthem at the Super Bowl. I don't know if I'm more mad about the caddyshack, they got the Chris Stapleton thing. I know, I'm sorry. Well, it's Marvin's opinion about caddyshack, but his opinion is factually wrong. Yeah. I mean, it's fine. If you like that, back to school. It's fine. You're wrong, but it's fine. Okay. Staying on the hill. How do you oh, I'm gonna die on that. Oh, you're gonna die on me. That's easy. That even closer. Well, you're gonna die by yourself on the hill. Fine with me? Yeah. How do you feel about Top Gun: Maverick? Oh. Not even close to seeing him. You're not gonna go see it? Not for what? Do you see the first one? Did not. Yeah. Good for you. What? Maybe Marvin's onto something. What? Doug Peterson Jags head coach will join us. Marcellus Wiley and the great Bill Walton will stop by as well. Busy two hours coming up.

"Update the poll results if you can see them from the first 47 minutes of the program. Dan is Top Gun: Maverick worthy of a best picture nomination. Options were hell yeah or hell no. We're going with right now hell yes, 65%. Okay. Okay. Those people are wrong. All right. We have another one though, I'm most concerned about Patrick Mahomes ankle. Joe burrow's cockiness, Jalen hurts shoulder or Brock purdy's inexperience. Right now, Patrick Mahomes ankle 68% of the vote. And by the way, nobody's concerned about Jalen hurts shoulder or Joe burrow's cockiness. Okay. Why would say it would be mahomes, then it would be Brock purdy. Yeah, yeah, that's what it is. It's a 68% of the vote, and then another 20 something for Brock birdie. Tom Brady on his podcast last night was asked about what's he going to do, what's his next move? Jim gray, good friends with Tom, known him for years now and here's the question from Jim and Tom Brady's response. Tom, you're leaving everybody guessing and you said you'll take your time. Do you have any type of a timetable as to what you might want to do regarding your football career? Jim, if I knew what I was going to do I'd have already done it, okay? I'm taking a day at a time. I sent your antagonized by the question. You're scratching. It's only the question that everybody wants to hear. You're scratchy. I appreciate you're asking. Thank you. That's Jim's nickname. Scratchy. Jack Nicholson gave him that nickname. And that's what time's alluding to. Furious Tom Brady explodes on journalism. Well, first of all, in an expletive laced tirade. Jim gray is one of his best friends. So it's not like Tom shocked at this. You know, it's not like Rick Stroud is asking this with the Tampa Bay market. And I'm going to guess prior to the start of this, Jim probably gives Tom a heads up, hey, I got to ask you it. I don't know what you're going to say, but I got to ask you the question. And I'm surprised that Brady reacted that way. And yeah, we want to know. You got teammates in Tampa saying they don't think you're coming back. Legitimate question, fair question. Play it again. Time you're leaving everybody guessing and you said you'll take your time. Do you have any type of a timetable as to what you might want to do regarding your football career? Jim, if I knew what I was going to do I'd have already done it. Okay. I'm taking a day at a time. Okay, so you got to know that questions coming. And Jim has to ask the question Tom, you know, there are times when I've gone into interviews. And right before we get ready to interview somebody, somebody to go, hey, he's not going to talk about that.

"But the guys will let me know if there's something I need to see on Twitter and so I see incentives yesterday afternoon. And it read dak Prescott gave away the ball twice in the narrow loss to the forty-niners. In a matchup, the cowboys had a chance to win if they didn't again generate self inflicted wounds. And I thought, okay, that could be Shea and Irving. Dallas fan could be a website, Fox Sports. It could be a variety of places. And then I go, wait, it says Dallas Cowboys. This is, this is their Twitter, and I went, who approved that. I mean, you got somebody who is typing that up, and then I'm wondering, does Jerry Jones does he have Twitter? Here's another one. Mike McCarthy took to the podium following the loss to the forty-niners to give his take on a season that had the opportunity to be special, but instead ended up being anything but. This is the cowboys. Twitter site. Then plays that might get forgotten include Tony Pollard's game changing injury and a dropped interception by Trayvon Diggs. Wow. Okay. What are you doing? I mean, I love it. That's the honest cowboys website there. But I think instead of being like, you know, these websites, it feels like, hey, you know, tough loss, but we'll get them again next year. Go team. This is somebody's being honest here. This is full transparency here. Yeah, yeah, most of these social media sites like tough loss for the boys this weekend, but we'll get them in 2023. And they're like, it was a lot so the article was written by Patrick walker, Dallas Cowboys dot com staff writer. The headline who knows who wrote that. It could have been one of the social media people. But it's like, it's still up there. People saw it yesterday. It's 24 hours ago and said, wow, that's really honest headline by the social media people of the cowboys. But it eventually quickly would have got up the food chain. And nobody took it down. Well, that's what was surprising. If you send it out at what point does it come back? And then you go, who put this up? I mean,

The Big Lie That Was Sacheen Littlefeather at the 1973 Oscars

"I didn't really heard too much about sashi little feather for years after that. But now her sister is really doubling down and exposing her sister her older sister for the bald liar she was and would go on to become and I'll tell you that story a couple of seconds. So rosalyn Cruz has been on a campaign since her sister passed away recently from breast cancer because it turns out such gene little feather was just an alter ego. Rosalyn was 15 years old at the time and couldn't believe what she saw on a TV set, just like we couldn't. She gawked and disbelief from their grandparents home in a very rural plot of California called Salinas. As this sasheen little feather, who she knew to be her 26 year old sibling, Marie Louise Cruz, perform what would become the most pivotal 75 seconds of her entire acting career. And now it's been a few weeks since the woman known as sasheen died a lot of better identity, and she died from breast cancer, not too long ago, a younger sister is just blowing the whistle on all her bullshit. And there are some really weird stories on who this woman really was and where she came from. So Rosalind couldn't wait to uncover all this stuff. And she went on a bit of a tear calling reporters and making the scene a different functions, what have you, and she felt the time is right now that her sister's dead, to really tell people the truth and who's sajin little federal really was. Because basically, she said that that whole stunt mortified her family. Because before a system of re left for the Academy Awards that night, she told the whole family, just watched the show. I can't tell you anything more, but just watch. And, you know, a few years earlier, the sister had started her acting career at the American conservatory theater in San Francisco, but still couldn't make a name for herself in Hollywood. So she cooked up something really crazy. So when they saw Marie identify herself as Apache, their grandparents, everybody's blown away. They'll never forget how they just stand at each other. Absolutely dumbstruck. And that moment marked the first time that her eldest sister claimed she was part of a tribe.

Fortune: A New COVID Wave; America Just Doesn’t Seem to Care

"Just read an article in fortune magazine that very interesting take. There's a big new COVID wave they're warning us. COVID COVID COVID is coming back. Coming back fall winter, here's the headline. A new COVID wave is probably coming and America just doesn't seem to care. I mean, fortune magazine is writing that people just don't aren't really panicking about another wave. Perhaps because we know there's going to be wave after wave after wave, and if you get it, you get it. That's the mindset. And I believe that there's more and more people coming to that conclusion. Anyway, a lot to cover, but my first question for you on this Monday. Let's start with Pocahontas ranting and raving. Definitely on the warpath, shrill, screeching, screaming, is that real? Is she acting? Is she just performing? Mike and Houston just sent me a text message. And the Academy Award goes to dot, dot, dot. But what about what do you think?

"Now here's what Will Smith just now put out in a statement. And he finally has apologized to Chris Rock, and that should have been the first words out of his mouth when he won his Academy Award last night. Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night's Academy Award was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line, and I was wrong. I am embarrassed in my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness. I would also like to apologize to the academy, the producers of the show, and all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams family, and my king Richard family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been and otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us. I am a work in progress, sincerely will.

Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock Following Joke About His Wife

"I can't even fit into a symbol. How much I care about the Academy Awards. I can't even begin to tell you how little I care about the Oscars. But last night, during the Academy Awards, Will Smith, who wound up winning best actor for his portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams father in a movie that I didn't even know existed, had no idea there's a movie about the Williams sisters, the tennis stars. I guess he played their dad. I don't know. I don't care. I don't really want to see movies. And I don't care. I was watching basketball. I was watching other things, didn't really care about the Oscars. But evidently, Chris Rock, the acerbic comic told a joke about Will Smith's wife and Will Smith jumped up on the stage, stormed the stage and reared back and smacked Chris Rock in the face. Do you care? I mean, I love how the other hosts get into this sort of parlor game who, who's right, who's wrong, he attacked his wife. Well, apparently it's not a very well kept secret that Will Smith and his wife have an open marriage. So evidently, their personal life is already a little unconventional, shall we say, and Will Smith allegedly takes it very personally when people criticize his wife because he feels like people are calling him a cuckold, which is, of course, a phrase that is like from, I don't know, Victorian England, you know, a cuckold but a man, I guess literally has other men sleep with his wife. And that's what being cuckolded would be. And Will Smith doesn't lie invited to call him that, even though they have this open road. I mean, I can't even believe I'm talking about this on a radio show because I don't care about Will

"We. This is no co now presented by shanin agency. Here's tanner schwinn hour number. Two the denver nuggets. We're going to talk about them here. Just a minute him. The sports world they They seem to keep going through it but Our number two noko now here on northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. a. We'll get through the sports world here in just a bit talking about the oscars coming up later on in the program as well Want to be a part of the conversation today text. The girl texan nights. Seven zero four seven eight one three zero one nine seven zero four seven eight one. Three zero one text. Kfi a to that number will be subscribed and ready to go They accessory to the flare. Inhere poll question. Excuse me up on our facebook. Page right now Our facebook pages at noko now but are excessive. Flare poll question. What concert are you. Concert of the greeley stampede. Are you most excited about right now. dwight yoakam getting a vote here. like i said dylan scott's gonna be sneaky good gotta celtics are saying that Hardy but hardy does seem to be the on all right. Let's get into the sports world. Talking about does denver nuggets. It's looking increasingly with every passing day. The denver nuggets will be taking on. The los angeles lakers in the first round of the playoffs. Four versus five type of matchup with the la clippers sitting three games in front of the nuggets. And that's a that's a pretty short. A short stint to get those pickup. Those three games against the clippers. So what does that mean for the denver nuggets does that mean. All hope is lost will know when he talked about the lakers. Their nine games back there. Four games vaca from the nuggets but nine games back from the utah jazz. Who look like they're gonna hold onto that number one seat. This can be perceived a couple of different ways as the nuggets have found themselves sitting at thirty nine and twenty one. This can be perceived a couple of different ways. Okay is it bad luck because you're drying the defending champs with you assume by that point. Anthony davis lebron. James is going to be back so you get those guys in the first round. But there's a reason that the lakers sitting number five right now right. These team is beatable this year. And once you beat the defending champs then doesn't doesn't all that pressure off and say okay. We can go do this. So they're gonna the nuggets are gonna know right off the bat if they do end up which it looks like they will do end up keeping that four and five seed matchup. If that's where lands lands you gotta beat the best to be the best and the nuggets are just going to have to do it in that first round now. One of the things that they're going to have to do is get healthy will barton out for quote foreseeable future with what coach mike malone called Pretty significant hamstring straight. So this injury bug has been going around and obviously hit denver. Denver pretty hard. They obviously lost jamal. Murray but now barton suffered suffered a right. Hamstring strain early This was on friday night. They're lost golden state It's he says. Elul wilburton says on twitter little setback. Be back soon. Eighteen last meet this season. God always looking out so now you got jamal. Murray out for the season. Monte morris strained his hamstring earlier this week and has missed the past four games so now you got we'll part now to this is increasingly putting more and more stress on two men nicole. Yokich michael porter. Jr. what did they do in their last game against the The houston rockets. Game that they won twenty nine hundred sixteen porter put up a career high thirty nine points yokich at twenty four points though that's does to could turn into the dynamic duo and those two are a match of nightmare for a lot of teams because they do have so much talent. I mean yokich can bring the ball of obviously i. It's it's been said it's been stated by everybody and anybody who's watched this team at all. There's not a lot of people who do what yokich importer do thirty nine points. Are you kidding me. Fox pozo at thirteen assist. This team is still finding ways to win basketball games. They got a big one tonight. Seven o'clock against the memphis grizzlies. The grizzlies obviously a pesky team you as we saw the last time. These two teams faced took him into into double overtime for the nuggets to win that game. But they're taking on The memphis grizzlies and job rant. The nuggets four point favorites as it sits right now. How far could nicole yokich. Kitchen and michael porter jr. carry this team. They're going to have to. Beat the la lakers and the first round. I think it's a could. It could potentially be a blessing in disguise all right. Let's switch over to the colorado rockies. Eight and thirteen now. They're they're starting to some stuff together. I like i like to see it. They have one. Let's see here. Four of their last five games. They slept the houston astros last week. In a two game series they take this series from the phillies over the weekend. They win the final game. Twelve to two. So are i think this might be the whole show. A poll question today is your hopes are getting up a little bit of iraqis eight thirteen trevor story with a grand slam cap off a seven run fourth inning letting loose a shout to his dugout a big bat flip and the colorado rockies overcame to solo home runs by bryce harper to beat the phillies twelve to on sunday off. If they can start to get this. This would be one of the craziest stories out there. If the rockies can somehow be good this year if they can find a way to be competitive. It's going to shock me. But john gray. Six innings pitched to and roads six ks that type of pitching. That's going to be able to do it for you. You didn't need the twelve runs. Which got him. You only need three. Could we have spoken to suit on the rockies. I don't think so. I still think that they're going to be a bad team. But let's see. They won four of their last five They are back in action tonight. Starting a new series against The san francisco giants seven forty five first pitch As they take on the giants in san francisco Let's go over to the. I shall we with the colorado avalanche. This team is another tv chip contender. Who's playing football arena. They've got.

Elul wilburton James twenty nine games Murray Twelve mike malone bryce harper twelve runs nicole yokich Anthony davis lebron Seven o'clock Four games last week six ks two men friday night twenty four points tonight san francisco

"Someone who I don't know has david fincher juan. Before as he or is he one of those at snub. I want to say that he's been snubbed. Without looking it up. I think he has not won. So i feel like this might be like a martin as type thing right right. Yeah i feel like Possibly he might win for For mink which. I love david fincher and i don't know if you should win for this one but if there's a time to give it to him maybe they're gonna think it's this time okay. Yeah that's fair. I'm gonna go with should win and will win for closure for nomad lands. I definitely see your point. Though with the the david fincher thing. I could see the academy doing that kind of thing but yeah i think it's clue as your though. I think. I think that she's got this one locked up and as we've been seeing these things don't always mean anything but all of the awards and all that stuff. They've all gone to her. And i just i think it would be crazy if she loses but i guess we will find out but what is something that you think should have been nominated again. I'm going to say Charlie kaufman that movie is just. It's just so good I know the story is just. I guess he suffers from just being too out there sometimes and maybe at face value people. What was that. I don't like it. But i think just every viewing you realize how much how good it is. And so i feel like his directing and also the writing is sometimes overlooked And not appreciated so. I loved like how he what he did in that movie so i feel like he should have got nominated as well. Yeah i i love it. I love it so much however not my pick for the should be as much as i love charlie kaufman. I do think that the movie is a little bit four. Charlie kaufman may maybe for the hardcore fans. One thing i one thing i noticed about twenty twenty there's a lot of amazing Debut films lot of first time filmmakers and one of them that i think would have been great to nominate was doria smarter. Sound of metal. That film is just so amazingly put together and just the way that tells the story in a way that's like unique and and it really is just firing on every cylinder from the from the sound design to the acting to the story to everything that comes together in that film I just think is just done. So expertly and Just one of the year's best so let's move on to the acting categories and we'll start off with supporting actress. We have maria. Buck lova for borat subsequent movie film glenn close for hillbilly elegy. Olivia colman for the father. Amanda see freed for mink and you-zhong yawn for monari Who do you think should win. And who will win. Who should win. I have to go with my clean Olympia coleman i mean. She's already one. But i feel like she should be up there with those two time. Oscar winning actress is i think she would probably be I don't know how many there are. But maybe julia roberts and meryl streep's won a few. So i think she's just as good and i feel like she should get it But i think will win. I think i would not be mad about this either maria back. I mean she's one some of the words leading up to this. And i don't know i think if you do that type of movie and what she had to go through. You deserve it as well. So i won't be. I won't be mad with either of those that would be great if she won I i agree with your should win. Livia coleman definitely is who should win in my opinion as far as will win. I'm going to go with the man to see freed from bank. I just think that she see it. Seems like the performance that would get awarded especially in a supporting Supporting category it just feels like the thing that would win to me and i have nothing more than that to say other than just it feels like it's gonna win but do you think should have been nominated. Yeah oh there is a lot of is hit to make up my mind. I wrote like a bunch of them. And then i'm league. How about you go first. And then i'll. I'm going to finalize my sure. Sure well my my pick. I think should have been nominated for this. This was definitely a little bit of a tough one for me. They're like you said there's a lot of great performances this year but once i thought like felt like they would actually get nominated. It was kind of a little bit tough to pick from I'm gonna go with olivia cook for sound of metal. Obviously i loved this movie so much and i love olivia cook. I mean everything that i've seen her in. I just think that she is such a great actress. One of the best young actresses working right now. And i just think it's such a strong and varied performance throughout the the time line of the film itself. And there's just so much to the character. And i just think that this would be a great place to Actually start recognizing her for the great work that she's putting in. Yeah i did have her on my list because The sound of metal. Like i don't know. I it was it was like she was in in the whole time when she did. I kind of longed for her. I mean rhythm. Ed is very good. I am not saying that. I didn't like watching him but like she was very captivating. Onscreen have to say. And i i. She's one of those actors. Like i've seen her before and i had to like liquor 'cause like where where was it but i remember she kind of stands out and everything she does Somebody kind of piggyback off. You say that one to kinda help narain on it that that works for me I let's move onto best supporting actor. We've got sasha baron cohen for the trial of the chicago seven daniel kelly for judas in the black messiah. Leslie odem junior for one night in miami paul receiver sound of metal and lakeith stanfield for judas and the black messiah. Who do you think should win. And who will win should win is lakeith stanfield. I stand by my pick. I i've i when i saw that movie I know daniel daniela. Performance is the one getting more of the hype. I think but for me what lakisha is with subtle and it's really hard to pull off like that internal struggle And i feel like daniel clue reforms. Obviously with fred hampton. It was more showy in our very good because when they show that clip at the end. And if you see those interviews. It's like it was uncanny. But i have to say that. Like i don't know something about the heat's performance of of really Like what that guy had to go through you know like what is character to go through and you can't show ally you know because it's like he can't give away what he's doing and so. I really hope that like he should win. I feel in my opinion. Who will win. I think it's going to be Daniel colusa just. Because i mean he's equally as great and i think maybe they're they're he's probably gonna get it and he has been winning up to this so Those are two my two picks. And i won't be mad about either like yeah my guy and i hope he wins. Yeah the i. I love lakeith to he. He he's awesome. I think it's kinda weird i mean. I think all of us think is kind of weird that he's up for supporting actor when it should be best actor but that's a whole nother story and who knows how these things work out the way they do. But i wanna go is should win for paul racy for sound of metal which. I'm just so excited that he is even nominated. I did not expect it to happen. But we'll win. Definitely daniel coup the performance to be and it is you know appropriately. Great and i will not be mad at all of you. Wins this one What do you have for.

charlie kaufman Olivia colman Charlie kaufman fred hampton Daniel colusa Livia coleman lakeith stanfield julia roberts daniel daniela Ed lakisha maria two Leslie odem junior Amanda two picks sasha baron cohen Buck lova daniel coup daniel kelly

"To me. I like it and it's it's stupid that i'm saying this because i i mean. This is a field of movies that for the most part. I don't give a shit about or at the very best. I respect this and also did do not wanna watch it again But then you get a movie like witness and it's just like you pop this on. You can pop this in your vcr for anyone you know. Got friends over. Whatever put family whatever night alone watch it. It's it's just it's it's breezy and it's engaging and it's fun and it's it's definitely like populous spill making at its finest but it doesn't maybe that's why it doesn't feel like an oscar movie and it kind of transitions nicely to my other question for you guys which is like what would be if you could pick populace film to to swap out from this year. It seems like witness you. Could you could almost lop it all out. And in inject something. Like i don't know why not back to the future or even cocoon people. We got cocoon fever sweeping america. Right now So as much as i love this movie i it feels totally out of place in in this field of films. Does that make sense. How good must be that us. I think might be the the feel of. Because it's very easy to watch. And i feel like the oscars i feel like the oscar commission just this challenge for themselves if they really genuinely enjoy the movie. Then it's that's not right. It has to stick in the crawl a little bit and certainly the rich movies definitely do that. Out of africa is actually. I mean i feel like that's one of those ones that you feel like it just deserves price because we all made it through. You know win. The oscar special audience award would get one. Yeah this is strange. Just this is just really great filmmaking to take a simple story text and infused through the magic of cinema at that you know it takes on all manner of other meanings in potentialities. Yeah it's just a good the hoping and yeah you're right. Why is this here. A little bit strange. But i'm glad i am glad it made us. Yeah i mean. I'd rather take of a film what they stopped passionate about this as you guys but feel at least has more places than say. Just the won't to be sweeping graphics like out of africa you know. This doesn't feel like he was made with oscar in mind and it doesn't feel like it was just nominated because it takes the boxes off because he's been made by like a previously celebrate director which must be the only reason the pizza on a eases beloved east By the oscars like this just seems like people want straight people like that it extends is. It's both populist. I'm dose nothing like late. At the says i mean account think of another amish fish out wall comedy is really connected with people. But if i'm forgetting something please let me and fill in the block world. Give it a few years. Yes there's gonna kick off the amish. We'll be back. Never right off the amish. I expect Amish fever to just sweep the nation and we're gonna have a huge huge swath of of amish films the next five to ten years But who knows who knows so. Yeah i i guess this transitions iceland to my my last question for you guys. If you had to swap something out or you know what if they were like this year we're adding a six film. What's it gonna be. What's what's missing from this field. Well i'll jump in and just say honestly. Eighty five was an incredible year for sean films. So there was no way hail any of them. Were ever gonna get nominated. Frankly but i mean you got night reanimator. I mean that was nowhere. Reanimator getting an oscar nomination sadly but it was a great movie and yeah. There's just so many great ed you had from our shanto Phenomena with jennifer. Connelly that kid. She's she's going places. I think Yeah there's so many great moves. Oh demons oh man horror cinema in a cinema lifeforce. Toby hooper suit reaches beyond the eighty five. Just so many tremendous horror movies in particular Kango the action movie. So frankly any of those. I like i would watch those back to back to back the same you three times over and that would be better than listening to meryl streep play dane. Meyer say you got. You got any snubs on your list here. That should have made it in. Yeah you know. I think i would focus in on Terry gilliam's brazil. I this sort of post. Nineteen eighty-four film that is really remarkable has been mistreated throughout its release process. Here certainly not something the studio backs to get in on this conversation. But i do think it's a remarkable piece of work that might have a more lasting impact than than something like out of africa. If you can believe that yeah kind of hard to think about but for me like it's all you need to do is like look through the rest of your nominations this year to see the you know the economy about walk some decent films it makes no sense why that nominate them in some kind of grades but not best. I mean you've got a brown He's nominated for best director. You've got to the future costs for mentioned to brazil. Aforementioned and of course you know everybody's favor direct you know livable counting navan. And he's still at obama this year. A not as woody allen with the papal does a. Cairo can't do anything wrong i think he's going to be. You know channing. Films year after year and in top. See anything happening. That will stop as loving the woody allen attending to them bearish of american cinema if something happens to him. I think i don't know where we'd be where we go. Oh yeah i i. I can't imagine a world where he's not just. The most beloved director talked about a guy with a consistent output. He's constantly surprising us With with new revelations in just just pushing himself in different directions in his career. Now if we're talking about autour who are doing a little bit of a nontraditional Film this year. I also like dimension scorsese's after hours which is a blast. Yeah oh that's great and the fact that that's just completely snubbed. His is crazy to me. Because i think it doesn't play like the kind of scorsese that we might expect from him But god the energy. That movie is incredible and You really got to step outside the box for himself. And i think it paid off immensely. So hopefully that's one that will gain a following over time. Perhaps in the in the video. Mark i guess the lesson for scorsese is if he wants oscars maybe stick to the mall films but maybe stop hiring. Italian americans get him out of yes says. Do you know any irishman. Because maybe you should hire more of them. Yeah some to think about Yeah i mean for me. I keep going back to the idea of like what What oscar movie is like what is that. What does that look like. And a weird snub. That mirus brought up was a room with a view. Like isn't that. Just the quintessential oscar movie and somehow missing off the list. So there you go toward an excellent film as well yeah. It's good stuff i mean. It's it's the kind of thing where again if you're looking at like what what constitutes prestige oscar film. It's like well. yeah. I got this this this this and this has got all the elements But it doesn't suck shit like Out africa sell you. Know maybe that a nomination said We do have to wrap things up. Because we're getting close to time here but Gotta do.

"Aware himself if he vacillates between these feelings or something you know very much unclear but certainly i can't think of many performances like that in cinema. Now it's it's pretty thin field particularly of of ben play openly gay characters like this you know and maybe the flaws will be you know kind of worn way in time. He might get reclaimed back in. I mean i'm thinking upcoming films. We have michael mann's manhunter come out later this year which is based on the source. Material is gonna pause it interesting. Messed up guy possibly You know kind of like gender confusion and so on. But he's absolutely a bad guy. He's he's a serial killer he's a really weird. Serial killer am but yeah maybe nineteen. Ninety-six is going to become the year of the like the weird weird queer representation in mainstream popular cinema. And i don't know if it will you know maybe it's too soon. May we're not ready for that. Maybe we need more glowing kind of popular friendly friendly gay men and movies to smooth out the edges. But you know. I don't know i think it's interesting. I think in time the rough edges year might might may be be less problematic. I don't know you know. And i will say this. For william her is. It's an incredibly brave performance account. Think many straight artists who would take him evolve playing gay just groundbreaking. I'm just happy will will always be able to treasure. William hurt for sure for sure Well we've got one more film to talk about and for my money might be the best of the bunch it continues. The theme of danny glover's got trouble on the farm. And you wanna talk about representation boys. When was the last time you saw an amish movie. Think about that one for a second and Another acclaimed director. This one's from the guy that brought us picnic at hanging rock. Peter weir's so we watched witness so alastair what the hell is. This is actually again. The best of high-concept movies are the ones that you can solve some lies in offense and Yeah simpler amish. Boy goes to the witnesses. Murder family In in jeopardy risk of being out harrison ford cop joins them inner amish village it's efficient. Accommodate meets suspenseful cop thriller the forget it to suspenseful thriller about forty five minutes in the second half to just be involved. Just chilling with the amish. Which is yeah you wanna talk about some great amish. Chill time he does. He hits all the notes that you want to hit. Does this motherfucker raise a barn. You bet on the see like make some furniture shit. Yeah at one point. It seems like harrison ford actually just wanders into a workshop himself and then the amish lady that he's lusting over kind of goes into bring him some lemonade and areas. And she's like. Oh you do woodworking. he's like oh yeah woodwork. Now what it seems like he goes from like shot in the guts and dying in the arms of the amish to full amish in less than a week. It's an incredible transformation. You know But i think the thing that really drew me to this movie and why enjoyed it is the way it kept subverting. What i thought it was going to do. I've seen plenty of of crime. Thrillers both critically acclaimed. And and just straight pulp up and and this one was constantly subverting. Things i thought it was going to be very procedural police driven. I didn't think it would have this It's almost like a romantic drama for almost half the run time and then the way that it goes from that and kind of seamlessly goes back into thriller. Action mode is Is surprising and it's another movie to where there's it looks beautiful. I mean i would expect nothing less. I mentioned before. Same guy gave us picnic at hanging rock which got every frame of that is like painting so But yeah i think the main draw for this one is just how surprising it was to me. And how subdued and confident powerful harrison ford's performance was which i i didn't know he had this level arrange yet this is It's strange because the you don't realize will be. I think somewhere in the middle section. You start realizes. This is a an america story and is his client the just maybe she's a society story. Just the tensions between between just ku kana commune. Living making things with your hands living kind of like easy and on claw her lawyer leaves following instinct versus urban living and the complexities of that and kind of organizing you know. Material wants and markets the drug trade that specifically pushes this the murderer that add the child witnesses and it. It's kind of like the two spirits. America fighting kind of i mean somewhat reminiscent of picnic at hanging rock which is again a film. Red like a tension between kind of a white colonialists civilization quote unquote versus the on capable australia wilderness. And yet it's peculiar to just sort of and kind of just meanders out into enemy. Maurice showers as soundtrack on this is i thought wonderful and really not what. I was expecting kind of strangely. Menacing in the city strangely kind of wistful in the in the countryside. And it it just kind of this just largely harrison ford hanging admittedly a very attractive amish woman who are think uses makeup the probably not available to her. She's not very plain. And kelly mcgillis in this few a few liberties taken but kind of really interesting and then and committing to it's To its thesis and his cover is blown because he can't help himself and some tourists start messing with the amish in the amish kind of absorb whatever they're just they're just asshole tourists will just let it go and he can't air towers. Import can't his character. He has to go and beat someone up and makes people talk and brings attention in. And that's when the guys are trying to escape comeback in and this is kind of the lure of violence of justice of as kind of this patchy idea of standing up for yourself in this context becomes harmful. It's kind of a really interesting story of how america built itself up as an agrarian to industrial to a post industrial society and its surprisingly layered for a movie. That is just asleep out barn raising and being playing. Yeah i. I'd also like to thailand jar score because i think it really reinforces a lot of teams you discussing the way at. Mary's is sort of wave. Synth sound with these traditional sort of amish tunes that are playing throughout is just. It's an interesting soundscape. That fills us film and i man. I actually really appreciate this. I think that on most levels assist assist a tight package witness. I think this is easily the stand out of the bunch. We are here. But i take little fault with anything in it i. I think it's beautifully photograph. The score is wonderful. It's assuredly directed all the performances are exactly what they need to be. Yeah it's i. I don't know i it doesn't it doesn't really feel. I guess if i had a lot of criticism at it doesn't feel like an oscar movie.

"Defense is but i've always been good to the colored people and then she accuses the black but have tried to attacker with. They're just trying to help her out. And i think that that sort of really resonates like there's no. There's no white savior narrative here. This isn't out of africa. Where meryl streep and swedish chef accent are descending into the onto the black masses and trying to save them. There's none of that bullshit and that's that's nice to see but then on the flip side of that there's actually been Protests around this movie By like progressive black organizations who feel that the the the way that black men in particular are represented in this movie is actually destructive because every black man in. The movie is a huge piece of shit up from my perspective. I see more of like a microcosm of this one particular family. Because danny glover's a piece of shit but his dad's a piece of shit Harpo is a piece of shit who is also part of this family and so it feels more the meal and generational To me but i'm not. I don't know if you guys know this. I'm not a black man. So i i don't think that's like my place to speak on. I don't know if there's a lot of complexity that goes into this and it is. It is odd because it's a spielberg movie and there's a lot that comes with that as well and it does feel like we're kind appearing in from the outside sometimes it's sort of film for me but it is certainly a film that is Leaps ahead of the historical dramas that are also sharing this category. I i feel like this is Remarkably watchable film for it. It's subject matter and run for better and for worse at times. There's the tension between as say spielberg's walkability versus the consequences. I mean oprah. Winfrey's character is so empowered and no nonsense and kind of elevates you know the whole scene. It's great fun and watching her and in spielberg villagers characters. Who were like fun to watch. But then we were faced with the consequences for being that way in this society and years of indentured servitude coming from one moment of just standing up for herself but the film kind of law over that part for her. it's which is back to the main narrative and it all wraps open a very uplifting moment even with a redemption ark for danny glover's character who is You know just an absolutely insanely awful person throughout this and and let's say you know who knows who who knows what issues. He's suffered with in his time. I mean he's still. You know a black man living in georgia in the early nineteen hundreds. I'm sure he didn't have a happy life. Either you know certain no one in this movie is is living their best life and the that tension just peculiar and it's kind of strange in terms of presenting this work as popular entertainment and on the one hand. I imagine the kind of movie you could. We'll the television into the classroom. Get the vcr. Hooked up and people would watch this. And maybe that's important. Maybe that's really helpful compared to maybe something that would be a little more scholarly a little bit more thorough a little hammer home a little bit more of the gravity of these situations without maybe pulling punches and which i think the villain certainly don't who wants to sit through that. May you know some people do i do. I'm a glutton for punishment unless it's boring africa the so i guess it's kind of weighing up the scale of the necessity of this film. I think it's film on. The whole is probably helpful probably whereas or somewhat useful at least. I don't think it's detrimental. I don't think it's it's painting of black. Males is being a really terrible. Is you the feeling you could make this movie white guys and and white guys talk to you know it's a patriarchal system and that that's another movie. Make that movie this one. you know. it's kind of like. Yeah you know i. I just think there's value in this one. I just question what could have been. And i suppose we'll never know at this. Point at of the film was made. Yeah i i agree entirely. I think that an easy way to sum up my issues with the film are with the resolution of the oprah. Winfrey characters are In that she has been pistol whipped seemed to have lost a lot of her mental physical faculties and has been essentially subjugated For probably decades. It's hard to say that the passage of time he's a little bit slippery but not not problematic but yes she's she's essentially a shell of herself had of just getting through the days and and in the conclusion of this film she just sort of gets fixed Somehow all of a sudden the switch flips. And she's back to her old feisty self and it's just like the come on now that's the way the world works we. We are confronted by the healing power of sas which yes trouble. The only the only way to officially He'll a closed head. Injury and brain trauma is With girl power yeah it just robs it robs that story which is a very impactful subplot in this film of a lot of its power. I agree yeah because it's like. Oh well she. She got pistol whipped because she was standing up to you know patriarchal systems and incredible like reconstruction racism. And all this really fucked up heavy shit and she was willing to stand up to it and she was the one character who would take no shit from no one. And what do you get when you stand up in your loud while you get pistol whipped and subjugated by your oppressor and then but but then her healing moment is is just like that. I it it rips. All of that out and rips out the emotional impact of that So we can have a happy ending. I guess i. I don't know i don't know what. Hey you know. Why don't we go from a giant long sprawling spielberg epic to the very first independently produced film. That was nominated for nascar. Also i it's It's it's an international film to which is not something you see a lot in the best picture category and my question for ouster is else. Who's your favorite latin american. Gay man. why is it william hurt. Oh wow so yeah kiss of the spider woman. So i'm just going to look at some context for us because the Because from getting into read this big change happened from the novel of this was based on to the film. The west seeing here because in the book The character is played by william. her in. The film wasn't a game on it was a transgender woman and has been changed from page to screen. But it's still written in this very confusing way. The gay men are just men who want to be women on its this very peculiar characterization dot is not the motley authentic. And he's just very very worst brand of saw straight people fighting.

"They could've could've done this. Frankly and meryl streep is building for me a remarkable career of incredible performances in films that i never want to see again with a few exceptions. So you know. And the french hands woman sophie's choice. This like just stop just be american accent. Gets the oscar you know. I'm i'm sure she'll evolve going forward in their career. You know it takes some other approaches. Yeah i'm going to make a bold prediction say that you know if anything this is just entering kolja even more from now on the only oscar nomination. She will get off the doing bills. She has a funny voice. Just just gonna meant not prediction. Yeah i i think you're on point that that makes sense. It seems like that's that's the line. Follow like good acting. It's not about what you doing onscreen. It's about how you sound and do you sound like you normally do know. Congratulations here's your golden statue Yeah i don't know this was just a slog and and the fact that like i feel bad guys like we we had to. We had to watch this for the show. And i just like to offer you a personal apology and I am sorry for sucking three hours. Out of your life is not fair. Well maybe something good become. Come this and you know all those colonizers will take the film's advice and get the fuck out of africa We can only help while you know. Let's let's let's move onto something different than the best picture category Out of africa. Melodrama romance kind of drags its feet. Why don't we go to a comedy. Oh no what if the comedy wasn't funny and had zero jokes We also watch predeceased. Honor which stars. Jack nicholson is. I don't know like chef boyardee with a lobotomy and Whoop see married a a mob hit woman and he's a hit man and what if they gotta hit each other wouldn't that create a little kerfluffle and somehow What's again a movie with no chemistry. No romance and no jokes despite being pitched to us that way Wh what the fuck pizza honor. Alison walk me through this man help me. I'm so it seems like a classic high-concept dot comedy of the saw. The i'm seeing combing comic actor. Danny devito padding to make lol yeah. It's like one of his films with all the jokes taken out quite frankly It's like whoa. If you had a high concept comedy that was all high-concept and instead of buying jokes he just got to speak in funny accents thus creating the illusion of commodore because if they said something funny voice then can lead to anything fully deliveries just selling the You know it's an absolute fucking slog. How is this over two hours. Long is my big question. I am completely gobsmacked by the run time. It's it's another one too. Where i it's it's like. It's like a theme for this year's best picture. Nominations where you get to a certain point and then you're like oh my god this is still going and then you realize it's gonna keep going even though it has nowhere to go. It's incredible stuff. Look i'll tell you high-concept what is more high-concept then making a film about the italian mob. And not hiring any italian people radical concept robert loggia is he might be. I think that's about this. Yeah was third billed in this film for some reason though. He seems to have about two lines of dialogue. Yeah this is actually a big joke at at the italian community at large. It's just like hey we. We hired a bunch of irish people to play. Italians isn't that funny and for us out for them. Not so much and then got. What is william hickey doing. Is he okay. I always forget that he's like he's he's only like fifty seven years old. He's not that old but he's just a appre. T fabri jolly. Jolly i think he's like a crip keepers is gonna keel over and die at any minute understand if his like his performance actually is the most confusing to be in this film. I genuinely don't know what he's doing is brilliant or insane. 'cause he's playing the elderly off your dawn. But he's he's his name is william iggy. So that's a bit of giveaway. He probably shouldn't have got that role and yeah he just looks like an athlete. You just desiccated corpse. But he isn't in real life i guess. And he's just slurs his words and he just looked really uncomfortable at the time. And i don't know if he's leading into like some kind of marlon brando or if this is so like absolutely bewildering and compared to everyone else like jack nicholson accent is holding it. Meryl streep is like open on a funny accent. Jack nicholson is like i will. Just pretend i'm heroin. There's just this slow. Demand on opioid teaches this location. As i wouldn't be surprised. Frankly if a large shown this film was shot you know just around jack. Nicholson that might explain. Some of the staging. He just refused to move or couldn't they just had to like kind of like incorporate into scenes. Yeah i want a wellness. Check for half the cast. Yeah i i'm not a hit man. I don't know a lot about this. But i imagine it's the kind of job there were reflexes and quick thinking could be important and useful. Nicholson communicates known of those things. So yeah again. Br high-concept remark like nothing in this film clicks together. And which really makes it very interesting on paper and very difficult to sit through innocent emma nicholson's performances is staggering to me like Offered a string of great performances. Certainly but this is not one of them He's certainly not doing any real vocal works here. But we're doing a lot of face acting. I guess at a at if he's trying to face act what he's trying to convey seems to be that his character is brain damaged in some way like he he just never closes his mouth got this drooping slack jawed throughout the entire film. And i i just don't have any idea what he's trying to convey with this role. It's it's quite a terrible performance. Oh i'm just. I'm just going to say absolutely categorically. At least i'm confident there's no way. Inhale angelica houston is gonna pick up our on an oscar for her performance terrible terrible just the best way of describing this fall accommodate is it's. It's the saw a comedy where you can tell. The everybody onset had a great time making it and they just got so caught up in how much from were having on site that they didn't realize that none of the material was rarely working at the level of it needed to you know paying and yet it's just late disappointment Especially for john huston. But i'm hopefully east gulf. Fu mall films left in the bank. So yeah. Hopefully this is going to be the end of his career bizarre choices from houston in this one to the way this opens is is. You'd almost think it was. It was going for an out of africa sort of classes. And it's very slow and deliberate and it's it's credits And the opening scene is set this sort of bewildering leaden pace for for a film. The same that at comedy. Yeah the the opening scenes like honesty like like the leopard. Visconti films like lauch. It's like this huge teeming wedding seeking. I feel like it's half an hour long. I don't think that can be true. Bought it absolutely just lingers and at a certain point i was just conflict. We're still here should. Shouldn't we go somewhere else. And and supposed to be i guess the.

"Welcome back optimism vaccine. I'm steve and joining me as always almost as always we got adami. ross Most excited for another oscar season. Baby we love the award shows This it's always a trial these upset at least hoping Won't be like previous years where we've had to do like three hour multi part episodes because i think it's it's high time we had an oscar episode where we don't grind our audience into dust with our our voices but we'll see how this one goes Also joining us. Say we got jack. Easson get drunk on one podcast and just comes back to haunt you time and time again. I don't know why. God honestly if you're tuning in for one of her oscar episodes. Serves you all. Bets are off. You don't know where you're getting. I choose to believe the silence. Before you responded. Was you shocked that. I didn't want to just grind our audience into dust again. That's your little sounds rice. That's fine well. I in one of these movies successfully ground me in the dust. Should i pass that pain along. Yeah in many ways. One of these films kind of mirrors the show where You know we probably go on for a little bit too long and the points that were making are entirely irrelevant. And it calls back to a bygone era that maybe no one actually cares about so Yeah lots of think about there but more importantly we have a special guest. this week. all the way from across the pond our international correspondent which is the title. We have bestowed upon him. 'cause you know if you're on the show more than once you're officially get a title He's turned the land of. Are you being served and margaret thatcher. You can read his. I lines pretty much anywhere. We're reputable few phone. Criticism can be found. We got alastair rider. How're you doing now. Sir thank you for having me back. Stephen yeah what can i say. Another cracking oscar slight last year. You know you make me some shit. And i have to say really. Don't talk to this year so thank you very much. Yeah you know we can all you can't count on us for basically anything at all but I if you if you want to upset people who are kind enough to be guests on your show if you want to alienate your audience. We are always here for that. So you can count on that kind of stuff But yeah what a year. It's been and i'm i'm feels crazy that we've made it all the way to another oscar season and this show is it's going to be a little bit different as far as oscar shows go. I think they're looking to inject a little bit of energy into the ceremony Especially after last year. So that's why they ended up getting robin williams. The host and i mean i get it. It's the oscars. Part of me is kind of shocked. They were able to get him in the first place. That's all you guys know. Why why would that be ad. Seems perfectly normal. He's he's a comic but he doesn't he doesn't have that you know kind of old hollywood sensibilities but he is being joined by jane fonda and alan alda so those are kind of hollywood stalwarts that they probably got to Ground him a little bit. I'm imagining and tell you. Stephen robin williams is guy with bright future ahead of them now. I think he will always make a smile always exactly. That's that's how. I feel man same same and the other interesting thing and surrounding the show itself is. They're kind of looking for ratings boost by having barbara walters interview the president. And that's gonna air just before I don't know what the topic of that's going to be. They really haven't shared much. I'm guessing there won't be much of a focus on like the us meddling in central and south american politics how the thought of like bombing libya can bring the president to climax however we might get a few fun recollections from his time in hollywood on the set of like bedtime for bonzo or something but Do you think that. Walters is gonna really take kid gloves with his mental health. You know was slipping a little these days. That's one of those things as one of those things that honestly if you let it go on here setting a precedent i feel personally. I think the president stay sharp attack. You worry down the line what that might might happen you know. Yeah exactly. I mean ten twenty years from now. What's what's that gonna look like someone in the oval office. Who's not all there mentally i. It's really impossible to say but hey enough about that. Let's let's jump into these best picture. Nominations for this year because Damn we got. We got five of these things we've got to get through and it's another year to where we've seen in the past instead of spreading things around you have a few films that are really dominating the entire show and that's definitely the space. These best picture noms occupy so every movie that we're gonna talk about is nominated a bunch of different categories So the first one. I wanna i wanna break down. Here is my my estimation one of the biggest piles shit i have ever had The joy of sitting through. And what a sit through a was because it took up my entire afternoon this is. How long is this nine hours. We watch out of africa. And if you're asking yourself what is out of africa. Just imagine like laundering loneliness of unlikable asshole through classic nostalgia and sentimentality. So it's like antonioni but with but that bleakness is replaced by like the grand scale of gone with the wind and like old hollywood wanker It doesn't work. It's distant and i fucking hate it Alastair favorite movie of the year. I mean it. Certainly the runaway favourite to pick up some oscar. I think if i'm gonna put my prediction half nobody's good. But because it gives the illusion that is following in the footsteps of all of these classic epic romances that used to dominate the oscars back in the early days. And i think that lesion is just enough to uh to win some oskovo over. Because i mean you know they're not going to you know go for the films of people wanna watch back to the future of course one of the best films of the year according to the general public just not not nominated for best pitcher because they want to focus on the films that they don't really make any mall and the quintessential foam that doesn't get made anymore and the reason that doesn't get made anymore is because it's obsolete bombing one that just cannot possibly can about lighten the beaumont with no chemistry and metal street. Doing a funny voice. A funny it's weird. The funny voices is like i can't even she supposed to be from where like Russell's but denmark. Yeah but it's just like. I don't know ton of danish people. Let's be honest. I've never been to denmark. But whatever she's doing some strange comic interpretation and because it's coming out of her mouth the whole thing just it feels very off especially because she is committed to this ridiculous accent but no one else in. The film is committed to their soup accent. So it's one person trying to our and everyone else kind of phoning it in and and when you have her across robert redford. Who's supposed to be from england. If i'm not mistaken right the the characters. They just dismissed. It's yeah he's just american. I believe you're sydney politics that there's no british personal life who's robert redford in which he is technically correct. Yeah right get a call up for that role. I it's just it's odd though because even the other danish characters there's there's a little bit of inflection here but there's not whatever merrill is doing all so she is supposed to be some sort of like you know lonely searching for love but her performance is just it's so like muted and sexless and i find it very odd that there's there's no chemistry between her and anyone else anyone else and she spends the entire movie just sort of either pouting or telling black people wearing gloves to like pick things up and put them in other places and to me that that just isn't very enjoyable.

Well, we have some Harvey Weinstein news this morning. What? What's happened here? Yeah, This is pretty much should be the end of the story on this. He's in jail right now. Serving out a 23 year prison sentence in New York and then after that is going to be facing another trial in Los Angeles. But yesterday, a federal bankruptcy judge ruled that Harvey once teens victims. All will share in a $17 million settlement from what was left of his company. The insurance company is gonna wind up paying this out. This will be divided up between about 50 different different women. The most serious of all those sexual assault allegations will get about a half a million dollars so otherwise they're going to split that up. And you know this. This should pretty much should be the end of Having to hear this horrible story that started what three years ago 34 years ago. Something like them and s. So he's still in jail, right? And he's gonna be there for a while. I assume 23 year prison sentence that he's serving now, but another trial's about to start S so I guess we're not at the end of the hearing of this now that I think of it, But another trial is going to be starting in Los Angeles with similar sexual assault charges against him.

Well, definitely demonized industry standard dirt. I wanted to get your opinion on that. Just you know how funny it would be if you trash these two other guys right now? Oh, yeah, He's lousy actors. Yeah. Yeah, You can. Yes, you can ask, um, he's never been back. You know, I don't care what he thinks. He's never been bad. I've never seen even in a movie that doesn't work. He always shines and he puts his entire physical body into every role. Uh, that he plays. It was a great, you know. Trio the Three Stooges who was a good one. Yeah, I understand the mutual admiration society here with you know, these guys, and Denzel had said we played the clip last week. Denzel you know talking about even if these guys didn't have Oscar's, they're amazing actors. I mean, so there's just so much mutual love. And when you see this movie, you know you'll understand what they're all talking about it. It's like it's a master class in acting. You know, even if you know the story is interesting there couple little problems with this movie that I'll tell you about Friday when I review it, But just to watch these three guys do their jobs. Is absolutely stunning, so it's called the little things and I'll tell you more about it at the end of the week. That reminds me based on what you talked about in your interviews. We were watching. Let's go one night in Miami. Oh, yeah. And we didn't finish it. We kind of had to go to sleep. You know how that goes, And so we're gonna finish it, but The acting their incredible and I'm confused, though they those people never actually got together in Miami, did they? I'm told that there actually was a get together that they did get together. This is the story about Sam Cooke. Cassius Clay, as he was known at the time, Malcolm X and Kim Brown. It's in brown NFL. Great Jim Brown that they actually this This is when cash is clay. Fought Sonny Liston defeated Sonny Liston. They did get together in a hotel room. What actually happened in the hotel room? They don't know. Okay, That's the part that they're just imagining the writers of this movie. Imagine. What might have happened when you know these people who are so bigger than life. Got together and we're away from their public personas and just could be themselves. But it's another good movie, and then all of those guys in that movie Are you know they're They're up for Academy Award not, you know, talk at least right now. Everything's all thrown off this year because the Oscars are going to happen until April this year. You know, Usually it's right around this time..
