It is a Tuesday morning August, the fourth as the last half hour, the show continues on some of the big stories were covering the Apple fire, still with 26,000 acres, but it's more humid in the weather has dropped. So that's good news there with San Bernadino Mountains. Ella ust the new school year starts August 18th. We just got that. And Hurricane azaleas. US. Yes has been downgraded Tropical Storm North Carolina landfall but still a lot of damage. The politics of Ah Making a mistake or two mistakes or three mistakes, and Ellen, too generous is getting just Ah, whole lot of grief because she has his public persona of being nice and wonderful and friendly. Just the way she does. Her show she connects with people dances down the aisle and hugs and all that. Well. She's being accused of A lot of wrong doing and particularly sexual, inappropriate actions, not her, but a couple of producers on her show, and she's not denying it. Incidentally, she is saying she looked into it on a couple of things. There was AH, 2018 New York Times profile in which they basically ripped her. And they published a profile with the headline Ln the Journalist is Not as nice as you think. And she actually is, in many ways, not as nice as you think. And then there was that Kevin Hart interview Ah, in which Hey, appeared on her show after he was forced to step down as Academy Awards host because of some homophobic tweets and jokes he had made the generous said Hey, I believe in second chances. And let's ignore the negative comments. I mean, the guy is he is remorseful for what he said. Nope. Doesn't matter, did generous was wrong because if there's homophobe content comments made, that's it across the line, and she of all people. As a matter of fact, she of all people I think would have the right to say second chance because she is a gay woman. She lost the television show becoming a gay woman. She was the first major television personality to admit she was gay. And so you think she would have the right to say that, but no, no, no. It makes her a horrible person. One of the big ones took a photo with George W. Bush at a Green Bay Packers game and man, the Internet just became crazy. Why? Because she's gay LGBTQ advocate and she's friendly with a politician who supported a ban on same sex marriage. Ah, he launched the Iraq war and, Ah The Internet went crazy. How dare you do that? And she said, I'm friends with George Bush. I'm friends with a lot of people don't share the same beliefs I have and they're in is the issue. If you not if you are not in lockstep. With any particular movement that you are even connected with. Then you are an evil person. If you are Republican, you cannot be pro choice. If ur Republican you cannot be in favor of gay rights If you are a Democrat, you cannot be pro life. If you are endemic it Democrat.

"Going to look at four movies that come from another time period. I find period pieces fascinating. The way they can help you really get a sense of history between the costumes and the setting. The language I just love being immersed in another time, and it also helps appreciate the time now in often in these period pieces, the historical circumstances are tough. I hope you'll get an appreciation for this to. Interestingly. All of the movies I'm looking at today have an academy, Award Winning or Academy Award nominated actor. In the first segment of the show I'll be talking about the first major feature film directed by Academy Award winning actor. Natalie. Portman her movie is called type of love and darkness. In the second segment I'm GonNa look at the Oscar nominated film pride and prejudice with Keira Knightley. and. A third segment of the show. I'll be giving you my thoughts on a movie called alone in Berlin, which is starring Academy Award. Winning actor Emma Thompson. And then stick around for the end of the show. When are we talking about a period film that is brand new on Netflix called the Ottoman Lieutenant, which is starring Demi Award winning actor Ben Kingsley. Let's dive on in. As I mentioned the first movie I'm talking about today is called a tale of love and darkness. It is directed by Natalie Portman and she also stars in it. This movie came out originally in two thousand fifteen. It's an hour and thirty eight minutes long. It's rated PG thirteen because there is some thematic content in some disturbing violent images. And swimming is based on a real life story. As, well, as book is based on the Memoirs of Author Amos. Oz. And according to net flicks where I saw this movie. It describes smoothie as the poetic drama that shares his family's tale of suffering in survival in the early years of independent Israel. And so not a surprise. This movie is a biography drama and something to keep in mind is that this movie is subtitled. While probably most severe scene seen Natalie Portman, she's speaking English something that you may or may not know about her she was born in Israel. Her family had moved to the United States when she was very young, but apparently, she is fluent though. So this is a super ambitious project for Portman not only did she directed movie and star in it. She also wrote.

Fresh update on "academy awards" discussed on Nerd On! The Podcast
"Of the films is nothing like profitable as the joker was or endgame was, but they're always like their. Action Films Worldwide Audience Films they're a little bit smarter than the typical action drama and they tend to have. A industry appeal where people they got nominated for Academy Awards. So seeing this film here that's criminal in doing something like that It's really interesting to see how much money that they're wanting to make it. They will make it I have a lot riding on it because I really want to support the filmmaker who's Kind of just tried to elevate the industry of what quote unquote normal average films should be like. Yeah so Everyone in the world of than the US is getting it sooner. They're getting on August twenty six. So I'm not salty at all little little miffed a little miffed. Yeah. So I'm excited to see the movie when it comes out but not excited that we're getting late. Day. People say the whole `nother topic of it is discussion of. Me To slap on the wrist. So the next part of our show, the last part of our shows in which we answer questions from you the audience and you can send those questions to questions at nerd on Dot TV, or you can go to nerd on dot io, backslash questions, and Smith questions there. You can also if you are a part of our discord, there are servers there and. A huge shoutout to the nation. If you are a member of the nomination, you do get a nerd on nudge to the front of the line to get your questions answered in priority and as a member of the nomination, you do get a channel that is just for you on our discord that you can submit your questions there. So they don't get lost in the flurry. Yes but ask questions like. Jackie asks. How do you rank skill flavors from least tasty to tastiest? It's religion. We're just GONNA go one part at a time. I have a really quick answer to that. Okay. I don't taste the difference what. I think they're all just sugary sweet things and I grew up I had had seven cavities. Because I got raised on coca-cola. Okay. After that, I stopped eating candy altogether. So to me, it's like this is just sugar are all of the skittle like color supposed to taste different. Or is it the different kinds like you have sour skittles? That's so I'm saying it's like Sarah skills or the creamy skills are different but a regular red bag there is no. Difference the regular bag I don't taste difference. Went to the store and I bought a bag of skittles. A red one tastes the same as a to me. Yes. If I were going to rate the the different kinds I mean the regular ones as compared to soured one's. Regular ones are better to my prefer sour overrated. Okay. Kaelin has lost all. Kayla the science girl who has like the Michelin Star tongue who can see what's going on I. Like now, I'm questioning like was I thinking of starburst but no, I feel like the skills stores flavor starbucks do for sure but like I feel like the skittles. Has. Now now I'm very confused Mandela Right. It really is I'm like wait. Questioning my own reality now. fucking gas lighting on skittles. They don't. They don't taste new different when you talk about killing there. There's no other flavors because I remember always wanting to eat the like. Red Yellow Purple Ones I am I didn't really WANNA eat the orange in green ones. I could just be a color preference, it could be. there. Are Superior. There are a lot of articles at ask if they taste the same or did they just smell the? Defendant. War. So. Skills are big deal man. Yeah okay. So Mind blown every skittle is exactly what they taste different because the smell is different try putting your nose while eating and I mean there's a lot of that shit There's a lot of twitter people saying that there's NPR article I think someone quoted one of the company like quotes of saying like it's cheaper to make things smell different than and look different than it is to actually make them taste different. So, CAITLYN's world is shattered. I don't know who I am anymore. The wildberry ones were really good to while variants our if we're GONNA IF WE'RE GONNA go with like types. The wildberry in this hour ones are ones that I remember fondly. I'm salivating because I'm thinking about skittles. Stop Salivating her candy. The next part of Jackie's question is same question. But for EMINEM's peanut butter, EMINEM's all day every day all day every day. In one bag of EMINEM's those are all the same thing with. For. Sure. Those are all the same. One of them's although. Not. Peanut. Butter. nope. Don't judge me I see your this is it. This isn't a judgment. It's the judgment. Your judgment. Judgment Face Okay I'm sorry I'm sorry. I'm sorry I just how dare you? I'm sorry. Just, so good corey would back me up if he was your and. Hold on this is a a spokesman for a Mars Wrigley. skittles who says. Despite unlike EMINEM's which candies come in different colors but all tastes, the same each of these candies and skittles come have five fruity flavors. That's what they say. But the article has also done taste tests and said that they've had a bunch of you blind taste us and fifty percent of them wrong. Well, that's because their mouths don't work or is because. Yeah. Margin of fifty percent that means there's no difference. Will the world doesn't know how to taste skittles right but CAITLIN does. Asian dude like me WHO's had like weirdest shit in my mouth Weird is she and my mouth mouth feel and taste and flavors and pundits like smelling durian fruit should smell like garbage asshole to everybody else for me. It smells like my childhood I get it like that's a durian fruit. I get like. Pause yourself real quick 'cause like I. I'd be able to taste it. Tom But. Also, I don't I used to it. So next yours is announce what's your answer for Eminem's. It's the same thing, but if I were to pick a favorite one. I mean the peanut butter one or Appear. Butter. One because it actually has something other than chocolate in it. But if I would actually pick one, I'd probably pick trail mix because it has than. What his answer? Would you like paper plastic? Yes. Polls Billy. Sad Song are happy song yes. Next quest show next question comes from Mitchell. In this this had us in the Digital.

Documentaries having new life thanks to streaming
"The pandemic has sent us all home without access to gyms, hair salons movie theaters. So what's a documentary into do? Peter Spier Academy Award nominated producer director has been making films for several decades dock. He says the documentaries are now finding a renaissance in streaming. One of the unexpected side benefits were filmmakers and peters going to tell all about it Peter. Yes thank you very much a pleasure to be here with us. To tell us about what's going on in streaming. So right now. Because of Covid people are staying home. Fortunately, streaming has really picked up since that time and their reports for the strenuous got up between thirty five and forty percent, so people are now. Using streaming taxes, all of their content Bluefin's shows the Netflix. We're talking about Netflix. Talking about Amazon Voodoo Fandango Comcast Cox. All of these platforms are doing very well. You've got a bunch of different. Movies are out there right now. Summer old summer newer. Tell everybody about what you've got in what what you've seen it. Is it been easier to get them up there? So let's start with telling everybody about some of the titles. Right, so I have a couple of club rugged entertainment. We have three titles right now. A film that I got back from a distribution company called Doug's more which we now have on Amazon Voodoo and Fandango? Probably a few others Newfield called the Sharm hate about the OT. PT Community and that film is currently on all platforms. And we're what's called transactional video so for your for people out there that don't know the difference. There's a transactional video which means you have to rent the video there s Vaud or Day. which subscription video which would be services like? Netflix and Hulu at Amazon and Yeah, so those are the two main. Video. in demand on demand services. Are You finding? There is a bigger thirst for documentaries from the buyers right now than there was before covert. I think with the emergency. Some big documentary programmes tiger king right now out of control in terms of popularity Are you know the jinx? That was another one that kind of broke through and we're looking at documentaries that. Are Not only one offs, but sure. I have what's called a one off. which is just single episode, but. They're also you know episodes. Alike limited a limited series for it's. One two I mean would say three to five or six episodes now. How are you finding the documents as Documenta? How're you finding as a documentarian? Being able to shoot right now when we're social distancing and we're wearing masks, and you're not supposed to be going out and doing these things how you're getting stuff done. It's almost impossible I you know. I think the industry is trying to come to terms with how we are going to move forward shooting the biggest issues insurance so being able to cover, not only the liability. But to protect the crew, that's a whole thing, but you know what it's easier with documentaries and doing a full on production so I think you. Wall Street documentaries because of the cost and the. The smaller impact with the size of the crew well, you could always interview people outside. You don't have to interview them in their office and that has to help right. Well people are doing those kinds of things and then there are you know because people are getting accustomed now to save zoomed interviews, there are documentarian making. Documentaries using zoo. Which is pretty interesting so They're just setting it up and you know you do your interview it. Routing out with other kinds of clips and archival footage, but yeah I mean. People are doing all kinds of work around to make this. If you watch the local news or the National News, it's now become the reporter introduces. As Zoom interview basically and they they cut back and forth between the reporter, staring this computer, his or her computer, and then there's zoom interview. So how do you? You Always WanNa, take documentary docu documentary and take it to another level. So how do you make that more instinct? Well I think in those cases. They're using just the. presets of that look. I think if you're doing the documentary yet more time to creatively do with that particular interview, but you bring up a good point, and you only have limited resolution and quality to zoom interview and. you know unfortunately you have to deliver to the platform, and the platform may reject it based on the quality, so it's definitely something that's going to have to be navigated. Okay finally, tell everybody, but does more. This was the film that you did several years ago. It's been lost lost for years, and it's now back alive again. Thanks to streaming, so plug it in television, yes! Dunn's more features. wwl Brown could name. Harbison Talia Shire a Barry Corbin. Some really cool actors. It's kind of who done it I call it You know a small a town film. On steroids and it's very cool, cool film. And I've got disarm hate about the LGBT committee that's got documentary out now. Streaming narrated by Harvey Fierstein and we have our latest film. Michael Debar. Who Do you walk me? Be About? His kinda zealot type character who was in the film shirt with love and also performed of a billion people at live aid. And why is there a documentary? Why is there a documentary about him now? Well. He's also currently DJ Little Steven's underground garage his second. Biggest DJ that's to Howard Stern, so he's very popular on Siriusxm but He's got an incredible life I. Mean you know it's? It's also a story about recovery. And I'm telling you no matter what you've been through in your life, it will not compared to what he's been through. You can't even imagine the stories the sky half well you. You'll get to see in the film so if you're going to go off and watch documentaries on streaming this weekend. Where should we go? go to Amazon Tango all those places. VOODOO COMCAST COX but the three films to watch Dunsmore. Michael the bar.

Academy postpones 2021 Oscars, will announce new diversity rules
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown Twenty Years Matt Bellamy my usual Banter Buddy on the business and Matt the Ninety Third Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed from February twenty eighth to April twenty fifth for. Obvious reasons. The eligibility period for films which normally would end on December thirty first. It's been extended to February twenty eighth twenty twenty, one. Because of you know. These films have not had opportunity to play or necessarily get the kind of attention. They would normally get. That's the argument now. The Oscars has been pushed before in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, due to La Flooding, and then in sixty eight because of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, because of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan so I. Think it's fair to conclude that. When they pushed the Oscar ceremony something very very bad is happening as it is now, but this was necessary. However, if you're ABC, just from a business point of view, this is bad news. Also yeah I mean there's A. A couple ramifications here one is for ABC I mean this is their super bowl. They count on a ton of AD revenues about hundred forty hundred fifty million dollars in ad revenue last year that they can usually count on in February that is now pushed out of q one into cue to if the Oscars take place as planned which are that's a big question mark. Will we have big scale events with celebrities walking a red carpet even in April of next year? We don't know the second is the impact on the film released calendar because. Because assuming at some point that movies do comeback and we start to get movies released in theaters again these big year end movies that everybody sees every year and you know come out around Christmas time and get a lot of the awards attention and go on to win Oscars that window is now going to shift into the January February march window, which is going to change a lot of strategies for these film companies because you don't now have to crowd. You're movie into that year end corridor in order to make an impact with Oscar voters. Voters, you can give it a little bit more time and that February. March time period is usually a dumping ground where you don't put your best movies now. Maybe you're going to put your best movies there because you know, you can get Oscar attention as well as some box office. Yeah, and what's really still very unclear win theaters will open theaters, clinging to to July, as is as our Warner Brothers with Christopher Nolan's ten and a couple of Disney with Milan they push tenant two weeks i. don't really get how that solves anything but. It makes us so they're not I now Milan will be I will be the Guinea pig, so to speak and then Warner. Brothers we'll have tended after that, so they won't be the Guinea Pig the other thing that is. Speaking of Guinea Pigs. The academy is going to try to do require going forward diversity as a criterion for eligibility for Oscar and they haven't specified what that means I I would certainly not argue with the goal Hollywood has been very very stuck for a very long time in terms of diversity goals, but you know it's something where they have to be very careful. You can't just mandate something like that without really choosing how it works, you know and and again. I want to stress how I totally support that goal, but you're sort of a strange territory telling creative people you must do X. and we don't know what xs yet, but you know. This is something where I think. There's a swimming Zaidi that it will end up being like the most popular picture category that ultimately just sort of went away. This should work, but the question is how yeah! It's a big question because you know for years and years, the academy has always said that the diversity problem is not the academy's problem. It is Hollywood's problem, and it's just at the Oscars are reflection of what the industry is doing, so you shouldn't blame the academy for the diversity problems of Hollywood. This is a flip of that. They're saying we are taking this on. On as an organization and saying that you will not be able to be eligible for an Oscar unless you adhere to some basic diversity principles, and they have yet to articulate what those are, so they just WanNa. See what the logistics are going to

Oscars 2021 Pushed Back by Two Months
"Day the Academy Awards they're going to at least hold off for what eight weeks is it well yes it's yet it's going to be pushed back is just so interesting to me though that the Oscars aren't even scheduled they they weren't scheduled to go until February of next year and already they have been pushed back and I think at I I don't know if it's you know they think that the pandemic is still going to be going on so much but out movies that were supposed to have opened over the past couple of months and hopefully will begin to open toward the end of July have just kind of been left in the lurch unless they've been a running on online platforms and that's something also that they're gonna need to decide about whether movies like the P. Davidson movie movies like spike Lee's movie which I think has a serious shot at some academy award nomination was supposed to open in theaters first before they went to their online platforms whether or not they will be up for academy award consideration but the Academy Awards now aren't even gonna happen until April twenty fifth instead of February twenty eight so pushed back a couple of months any movie that comes out between now and February twenty eighth will be eligible for Oscar

Truth vs Hollywood
"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this
"Gone With the Wind" pulled from HBO Max library for now
"David you bring up gone with the wind gone yeah I'd H. B. O.

"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.

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 awards" 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? If you're looking for a quick Lincoln certainly said that available on facebook too so check those out. Hopefully you'll find it interesting. 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. The company now has four hundred million total monthly active users which is up fifteen percent year over year..

That didn't even didn't get nominated a Steven Galloway. What films didn't get nominated that you thought really could have deserved it? Actually like hustles a lot and I thought it might cross al-Suleim and get some traction To be honest we're not mad. I sister prices for me The films were directed by women. I didn't know if they were going to cross over in Pew that Group of voters it's a few years ago Actually when April start the Oscarssowhite we we put together roundtables with the actors directors writers. And we're putting together the actress roundtable. There were absolutely no you women of color who seemed like there were even likely to get nominated and I remember an got. Pretty massively criticized rightly But it it was evident that the industry wasn't creating those films and I think it's easy to say if the academy or it's the industry it's actually both you and you have to tackle things in multiple directions and I think the academies has done a great deal to that what we haven't spoken about this the other things. The academy does for instance mental programs financing for Education. There are multiple prongs that lead to this program. Shots awesome very downstream academy not wrong. But you call take an isolation April. Stephen has a great point. We tend to look at the academy not that the Academy Emme shouldn't be accountable they should. They're sort of the tip of the iceberg in many many ways. What's your view of the academy that you focused so much attention on versus versus the industry? Oh I absolutely agree with Stephen that it's not just the academy it's not just the Golden Globes it's not just the baptist. We need to go all the way back to the very beginning to the screenwriter stage and figure out again whose stories are being told and who is telling those stories. I absolutely agree that the academy. He is the very end of the line so we really need to start back at the beginning and find out what opportunities are being given to traditionally underrepresented communities. He's not just with respect to race but also sexual orientation gender identity disability to get those films made from the very beginning and at the same time April you have written about the types of roles that black actors and actresses do get nominated for once they are cast once they are in that pipeline. You wrote a piece in variety Eddie. You talk about how the only black woman to be nominated for best actress. Was Cynthia Borrego who plays Harriet Tubman in the film Harry it similarly Lupi Dongo in younger won an Oscar for her role in twelve years a slave but this year she was overlooked for the two character she played in Jordan peels. Hit movie us. Talk about what you see. Is the pattern for how black actors and actresses get promoted and celebrated when they aren't films. It's a real problem and I think Stephen touched on this a bit. You know that that in their mindset even when they were sending up those roundtables. They didn't think that those particular performances is were even going to cross over for women of color so they weren't included in the panel and one must ask what kind of troops are palatable to to the academy to voters to film critics because the vast majority of winners Especially for women of Color and black women in film have all come from a place where the characters are experiencing significant trauma and so one has to say. Well why is it that my pain the pain of my ancestors ancestors is entertaining for you that that is what she will award. But when someone like pita and young has to fully fleshed out characters actors in us. She is snubbed for that Roy because first of all we actually the very first person on the actress. Roundtable this you. It won't be pizza. A wonderful performance Decision just true of actresses of color. You know for for their access to you. You'll you'll call the mention uncut gems terrific performance by Adam Sandler but to see the show on a movie showing movies don't tend to do well Lost to appeal movie was was one of the very few exceptions and this applies just as much to actors and applies just as much the films that win the Oscar for best picture down fly in the whole history of yours if holly had any communist that when in you I I can't think of a single sean or picture that is one on the other hand list wins so this isn't just criterion that applies to women of color. Let's talk about some more films that could have been nominated. That didn't get nominated. We've already mentioned Stephen. You mentioned hustlers. Wanted many movies with a cast of mostly women directed by a woman that got zero nominations. This year failed to to cross over his. You say let's get people but hang on. I WANNA I WANNA get people a little bit of a listen to Hustler's here. We Go.
"academy awards" 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.
"academy awards" Discussed on The Big Picture
"Wesley Morris and this is the big picture guys. Welcome to a very special conversation. Nations show about the Academy Awards but not just any Academy Awards are Academy Awards. were changing things up in the big picture this week. We've invited wisely from the New York Times we think for being here. Thanks for having me. Three Person Person Academy that makes us the Grammy Selection Committee. Hopefully less fraught less racist racist sexist and complete Taylor swift at Ed. Sheeran her part of my mom and I want the academy to tell the truth about who it is fun. Fact Taylor swift and Ed Sheeran had movie moments in the last twelve months. If you recall cheering yesterday Taylor Swift. Of course Miss Americana could forget. we're not going to be nominated for you said Miss Americana Either GonNa cats. That was yeah. That's very generous of you sir. I've locked that out we. We're not talking about that on this. PODCAST CAST now. We got the part right. Okay guys so every year the Oscars come around get very angry because they don't represent all the movies that we want to to be celebrated this year I would say it's been an unusually positive Oscar year in terms of nominations. However we got stuck in this conversation about why are there no female directors in the best director category? Why are there so few actors of color? Why are there so few uncut gems nominations are there so many things here we may? They disagree with that. We will discuss. I'm I'm your evolving. I'm evolving exactly the way to put it all evolving. Wesleyan a minute can you guys. Just give me coming some big picture feelings about where the Oscar nominating process is before we dig into our own awards well Without going into the Math Jeff on how the nomination determined at least in the best picture category whatever they did to make them less foreign needs to change because in addition just like I just wrote a piece for the paper Abou a complicated problem I have with. This year's show is the first time more. I'm I feel like the homogeneity among the best picture nominees just superficially is Kinda monotonous to me. What do you mean but up I mean basically what I mean. Is that lake. There are nine move. Eight movies about white people And like the the white experience yes there is a wide experience. PODCAST is often expanding on and in one from Korea or South Korea. And I I like all of these movies except for one and a half of them and so so. The thing that I am annoyed about is that there isn't it is not as though there's one movie that didn't get nominated that should have that also featured Richard people who are not white so my problem is more of an industry. Problem in the Oscars of course is a symptom of this larger thing. And so I'm Kinda just. I went back just to do some math on on on. How many movies among the nominees for best picture since they expanded ten were set the present and usually I mean the thing? That's thrilling about the best picture. Nominees every year is that you do get some really interesting story that gets told about the movie industry but also just the movies and something about this collection of movies as a collection as a class of films kind of bores me and but again like I like most of the nominees and so I don't know it's a weird place but they they have to change them. I think the man is part of this like even I don't like Hustler's that much but you this. This group of movies needs it. Needs it needs needs like a blindside. It needs a district District nine yeah. It needs a district night but you think that so. That's I think it's math don't you because don't what's the one film that would have resolved some of that feeling. Is that the farewell. Like what is it. I don't even see that's the weird thing also. I don't even care care what it was because I don't like any of the alternative. This is weird year for for the solution to this problem. There isn't one. There's no main waves. Waves would be a movie that would that would be more interesting but every year since they expanded ten has had just more interesting stuff. It I have a theory and it's not about math and I think your point about math is good and also your point that this is these are eight movies about white people is also important. uh-huh any everything we're about to say is not going to change that but I do just and it's not GonNa Change the industry and it's not GonNa Change. WHO GETS to make movies? Unfortunately but I do wonder if some of it is also like our expectations and our relationship to the nominees because we're used to being dissatisfied and we're used to findings something that to be mad about and since they've gotten to ten and especially in the last couple of years years. There are more movies that I'm excited about that are nominated for best picture. And even this year I would say they're five movies like jazzed about same same here and I'm not used to that and so I do think and and we're part of doing this podcast and talking about the Oscars is arguing talking about what was snubbed. And what the economy isn't representing. and I wonder if some of the boringness is just kind of. I don't know where to put all of that energy for what interesting that I hear that that particular aspect of this year's race though I think is an anomaly. I think there's two reasons for at one. We we just happen to get a couple of films from a couple of people who kind of always make big noisy special films. Martin Scorsese Quentin Tarantino. We got a couple of movies marriage story and the Irishman that probably would not have been financed by any other studio that got a lot more money than they would have gotten and so those movies got pushed up to the top. You know I know you guys probably not huge joker Fans but that's a highly unusual kind of movie to have been made in the way that it was position. Marketed the success that had had and also the parasite thing is. There's just no literally literally no precedent for a movie like this getting this much awareness appreciation potentialities to win The the fact that this is impossible right now is was utterly unpredictable. Even even in September I ran so I think accounting for this year in particular as a bellwether of any kind and is a little bit difficult long term. But the point that you're making one hundred percent right which is that you know. There's a certain kind of movie that still is always going to get made in Hollywood and there's a certain kind the movie that it's still really hard to get made that's movies by women's moving movies by filmmakers of color starring people of color about different kinds of experiences in the world. So that's not going to change. I think some of what we're we're GONNA do here accounts for that. I think some of the categories that were creating accounts for that. Yes I think. In general though the public perception of the Oscars is it's a little bit. Stodgy it's a little bit boring self-satisfied but also it doesn't really understand what's fun about movies no well that's part of I mean to the degree agree that there is a selection committee. It's People's self consciousness about their with. They want their tastes to be. Yes yeah and that to me is part of what I'm sensing about this group. The best picture nominees though I feel like I do feel like despite the fact that I actually could not subtract one of these movies or there's a ten slot at the tenth movie like what I mean. You could additive movie proud interesting lake. Ed Lee said in the president and at least about the thing that is seemingly the problem by gathering these movies together race Which member of the knives out family is each? That's a good game that somewhere. Oh I like that. We don't have to answer that right now but just trying to think of the Google anyway I but I but I also think that part of the problem. I think some of the things that I'm feeling is this. I mean I don't know it seems like a revenge against the way things seem to be going. Otherwise yes but you can't prove that a and I mean I'm arguing against my own myself right now but it's unprovable. It's just a feeling that I have a feels like every time they do these blind surveys of these academy members. There's always somebody who's like well. I don't think we have a diversity problem. I just think the movies that Star Wall you know other people uh-huh aren't as good as the ones right or even just that was nice. But it's not an Oscar film which covers all manner of sentence and that shows up in. Everyone knows that there is an Oscar film which there's been an Oscar film since like nineteen thirty nine like that's part of the problem. Yeah I don't know when it got so not. How did you no one team seventeen despite how much I love? It smells ker movie. It is twenty when I was fifteen. I did not think that was pejorative. In fact I thought that that was was meaning really really meaningful. My perception of it is changed or self conscious about it. That's an parasite actually wins. I'm going to feel really freaked out. Because does that mean that I'm basic because is the movie that I want to win also won the Academy Award. I just called aging. Yeah well I don't know I don't feel the way by moonlight. Yeah now more so feels like the exception and to me even though I mean in a weird way. Here's a good test of this of this question. The departed. I always think about the idea that departed is a best picture winner. You know what I mean. I think if the departed was directed by Guy Ritchie though it would have had no chance at the Oscars yes of course. The Scorsese. Only the Scorsese UNISOM did that but just looking at it. As a movie rate lake. That was the best picture of what was it. Two thousand six six. I just it just kind of. It's a funny thing. It's a funny thing that wasn't i. I wasn't the best movie of that year. Obviously are not obvious. It's funny that you bring that up. We actually just talked talked about that. Exact movie a couple of days ago show in that movie yeah. It's a totally fun and slightly. You need us. Yes Oh sure. Yeah what what other the way. I don't know actually actually. Actually what's going on with Matt Damon in that movie. Congratulations him okay. So if we were going to change James the telecast a little bit What what there was talk of this last year? About modifying the telecast. But I don't want to modify the telecast per se but I think that there's some categories that maybe we don't needed some categories and maybe we do need okay. I'm personally I just don't believe that. The shorts need to be in the Academy Awards No one watches them their unseen by the by the public at large. Are You mad at that. You want the short sustain gas. I do why I don't know but the idea. We will not a part of the rest of the conversation but is that really how it works. I mean I'm but you're talking to the wrong person and a win aware like I actually wish they had brought. I want to see the best bluegrass album winter. I WANNA see best. Okay I WANNA see best. Best Ja- best traditional jazz album. I WanNa see that person person win. You're in dangerous territory women. I personally would like there to be a nine hours. Oscar ceremony right. Amanda wants to get through this fairly quickly vision show. You're saying it's its own not work of art. But it's least its own entity that needs to have a start and a finish on a structure and momentum and energy we can't just like trot got out every single movie clip that Sean is like for the past seventy years and then let's talk about this cinematography. I'm and this one's like to the telestrator up with the old Oscar broadcast that were nobody really. There was no Internet for people to run to and complain. I mean it just ended when it ended and it was full of supporting clips. I mean for a lot of America. They didn't know who Pauline Collins was. They wanted to see like surely Valentine. What does that clip? This is good so you get a clip Pauline Collins Acting Shirley. Valentine know what you get is a weirdly spliced moment of an actor doing the most over the top contacts list part of a movie you have. If you don't know where Iran Iran remember. What Julia Roberts Best Actress Clip West Pretty woman? It was her singing kiss in the Jacuzzi..

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

Now playing in theaters nationwide asked part of its seventy one billion dollar deal to acquire assets from Twenty First Century Fox. A YEAR AGO The Walt Disney Company ended up with a controlling interest in the streaming service. Hulu Disney subsequently bought out COM cash share of Hello Oh and now Disney has announced well assume much closer management of the streaming service. It's all part of the studios aggressive move into streaming. Lucas Shaw covers media media and entertainment for Bloomberg. And he's here to sort out. How Hulu figures into Disney's future Lucas? Welcome back to the show. Great to be here Hulu previously had been more or less a standalone ration- Disney now as I guess bringing Hulu closer under its own control. What does that mean? long-term and wide is Disney. Feel it needs needs control. Hulu more directly. It's kind of a short term pain for long-term gain scenario where you're going to see it. Having to ingest a company with a very different culture but Disney as a company that really likes to control soup to nuts. It's an organization that is run in a very hierarchical fashion. Co Bob Eiger. Who's been you know? One of the great great media. Entertainment executives of this century has very hands on approach with a lot of these A lot of his assets Kevin Mayor. WHO's running all of Disney streaming businesses? This is also pretty hands on in my understanding that the two of them would like to be a lot more involved in the strategic direction of Hulu if you look historically because who had multiple Owners it was very weird situation where it had a CEO that was independent and made a lot of the decisions on its own was run separately but the speed the CEO of Hulu was kind of a thankless job because you had control to a point and that point was if it required a lot of spending or it was a real kind of strategic initiative initiative. You needed the approval of your board members who were different media companies with kind of clashing priorities and they often struggled to agree on anything having Eh one company and then one or two people in charge of all of the streaming operations not just to but Hulu and Disney an ESPN allows house for a cohesive strategy as Disney tries to plot. It's coach forward in this new world. Hulu obviously does not have as many subscribers as Netflix expert has made some material gains. How has done over the last year or so in terms of subscribers and as clear what its identity is going to be within the Disney universe? It's double that subscribers more or less in the last three years it's now of thirty million subscribers which is much smaller than net flicks in the. US can about half half the size but still very strong and it's been growing more quickly than net flicks the past couple years because as Netflix since reached something of a saturation point who has seen an opportunity. Now some of that. It has been through investments in original programming. The popularity of a show like handmaid's tale Some of it is through really steep discounting. Who's done these black Friday deals where you can get a year's subscription for like a dollar a month and that's really helped as for and where it fits in Disney? I think it is both clear and unclear. I know that's sort of a cop out answer answer but look Hulu. Is the home for more adult programming relative to what is on Disney plot so all the shows from places like the FX cable network which has had more violent more mature themes those fit on Hulu? They don't sit on. Disney plus Disney is very protective of the Clinical Disney brand and that stands for family friendly entertainment. And there's a lot of programming that will work in a streaming environment that comes from different divisions of both Disney and Fox that might not work on Disney Disney plus but works quite well on Hulu but I think Disney will have these tricky questions with certain projects what fits wear. And it's why I assume the company company will really push this bundled offering. Where you you get Hulu and Disney plus together I'm curious how Disney looked at streaming as an overall business disney? The Essay Movie Studio has focused on brands like marvel and Lucas and Pixar how important is streaming going forward with Hulu Disney plus ESPN and in terms of the company's overall future strategy. It's it's really really important. Because Disney is a public company public companies ket measured by investors based on their future growth potential and Disney had run into this this tricky player. Even though it's movie business was dominating Hollywood the cable TV business which had been one of one of if not it's most important growth engine for many many years was starting to sputter because of cord cutting because of Netflix. In all of the all of this competition and so it has sold Wall Street on the idea that streaming is going to be that engine going forward much as net flicks has made made a ton of money or at least its market. Capitalization has increased by billions of dollars because of its growth. Disney now wants to draft off a similar phenomenon. And we've seen Zeenat. I mean every time Disney has reported its financial results in the past couple of years it has been able to sort of distract people from whatever the underlying numbers are about the business with some kind of shiny new toy about what's happening in streaming everything from the fact that there was going to be streaming service to some of the shows the fact that it was taking movies off of net flicks and this has really pleased Wall Street so far it's working because Disney plus seems like a big success. Let's talk about another publicly owned company called alphabet it's the parent of Google goal and it also owns Youtube and alphabet up until now has not released the numbers for Youtube and now it has so two questions. Why why did I decide to start releasing financials about Youtube and second and more important? What are those financial? Say About Youtube Business. There's been clamor for it for a long longtime because youtube is now so big that investors want to know more the media obviously wants to know more the SEC often or will sometimes require disclosures at a certain point. It's not not clear that that that happened here. Maybe alphabet and the parent company. Google just wanted to show that they had this really fast growing business. Because that's what the numbers show you know. Youtube two reported about fifteen billion dollars in AD sales this past year and it's growing at a rapid pace that fifteen billion dollars is a little below. What a lot of analysts taught they projected to be closer to eighteen or twenty billion this year but it grew from eleven or twelve billion the year before fifteen billion in two thousand nineteen and will continue to grow in the years ahead? It is a growth opportunity for what has been a maturing business. Lucas Shaw covers media and entertainment for Bloomberg Lucas. It's always great to have you on the show. Thanks for coming back likewise.
