Oh this is like the coolest thing I've ever done almost and I I don't even know like when I'm allowed to. It's one of those things that it's just sort of that makes a lot of sense because a lot of people don't know this but Tom Holland is a very thick British accent and so I actually actually do real talking in the movies. What I hear you saying is you are the voice of every Spiderman Line in every spiderman movie of all time I you know it's you. Know. It's true. No it's actually pretty easy because most of the time he's got the mask on, you know to point point it's very like. It that's a fun job that was a fun job. It's about that time rape.

"That's it it like many things will discuss here. I think it's kind of It's kind of an outlier for its era. Like I think that because we're covering Denzel in the audience that we're seeing a lot of the changing face some sort of action Cinema and you know, I'm kind of major Studio Cinema as a whole cuz these star German things are almost becoming an outlier even in 2003. This feels very much like a nineties action film and that's a good thing in my book. Yeah, for sure and it kind of it really like because so this is 2003 and then the year before was John Q, which is another movie. That's like a surprisingly good and he's really good in it. And even though it has like sort of a formulaic like set up and it also is in like with his back against the wall. Um, but it's a very B-movie feel like this and these both come right after training day and like I mean you had this run off coming out of the 90s, whereas like the hurricane Remember the Titans and Training Day, like that's such a huge like Blockbuster and like Prestige like all of this this collateral that he's coming Thursday does out of time and John cue and it's just like these weird throwback B movies that really do like Jake said silver sort of that star power and yep. It's it's interesting. Yeah, it's it's really good shit. And we I mean we were joking earlier, but John Billingsley who plays his kind of like sidekick in a way he works at the morgue but he helps out the sheriff because I mean, it's just this tiny little fucking town. So he does things here and there for the police department and he's hilarious and just great as a foil to Denzel's straight man and holyshit Dean Cain as a villain natural villain natural villain, I mean in life, but also in film like so fucking weird that he played Superman really proud of the way that would shake out. Yeah. I mean, think this is like, I feel like the connecting tissue and I guess maybe you've Denzel Washington as a star is like the man smile carries more weight. I think than any other actor of the modern era and and the way like and he says switch from from like when Denzel Washington Smiles it can carry so many different connotations off. Like genuine warmth or here. It's usually a deception a distraction but underneath it. He's a good guy in this film. He he breaks the law but he's breaking the law to hack someone in an Earnest fashion and then things start constricting around him and he's got to start, you know, rejigging things to get back parody. So it's kind of like he's he's condemned for being a good guy for helping one out and it turns out the world isn't the world isn't nice to a good man. But I mean, which is the same exact setup in John Q. Sure and it seems like I mean for me this film wage, I'm I'm like, I got it. Maybe I'm not as warm on this film as as you guys. Like, I think it's good. I enjoyed it. But to me it kind of has that like hotel room feel it's kind of like it's going to remove it off, you know fine on TV a hotel room and sit down enjoy kind of, you know unexpectedly which is not necessary or necessarily a bad thing. It's kind of like I don't even know what category of movie that is, but it just feels like that off. Point Men Can't Jump is another one of those movies. I just you know enjoyable but not exactly something I would recommend or go. Like you've gotta see this but that's basically how I found it. Jack realistic wage. It was it like a Friday or Saturday night and like this was I don't know like two months ago or something like that and I was like, it was like too late to like start like a movie..
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

"So at saying, you can use these frameworks to incorporate so many different ideas and in the process kind of put them out there and say, Hey, his oldest stuff and it's full. Yes, maybe some cultural specificity to it but at the same time I, think putting it into mask media entertainment is saying well, this is okay. This is for everybody to. Appreciate engage with. mobile Being also why what I'm looking at his own screen rather than just in film with the TV and streaming products I mean a mobile has done is gone into in other directions as well. Explode Vigilante Justice and issues of disability with series dead devil it's done. It's really interesting another look at Rice. With the Luke Cage and also really interesting gender explorations and indeed examinations of toxic masculinity in this series Jessica Jones. So I think what we have here is a contemporary genre Kaz sapiro is genre in it's a right it wasn't always, but it becomes that and within this genre there is so which there's so much potential exploration. Identity politics and they are and globalization because these all consumed globally and incorporate global ideas such as the things mentioned in Black Panther and the key thing which makes all of these possible I think is that the superhero text is dependent or lemon -ality. It depends upon figures who move between different areas you know. So you've got you can say go. Is. This wealthy. but the funny suit and flies around the world. You can have someone who is on the one hand a an embodiment of like. Somewhat. Retrograde. Patriotism. Bought at the same time is can also be used as something of an analytic subversive figure Yeah. I don't think many described Captain America as the run all kick butts I'd just did. And but that's the potentially figure out because. the superior figure if you like is regular person, they do things that are extraordinary one way or another as. Nick Fury says in the adventures, there was a plan to bring together a remarkable individuals which raises questions about the culture, the individual, and we should just wait for some. You Know Powell to save us and threats come from outside. Yes. These are all problems that it's worth talking about but I think that what we've got here are. Using, these figures that move between different areas and when we see multiple different areas being presented. onscreen I find bats endlessly fascinating and can I? Look forward to all of them and and I am very much looking forward to win I can get back into a cinema and see mobile. Yeah. It must be difficult for some lucky his. Studies. You know I. It has an in depth interest in films researches films to be away from films with two long time. Yeah I mean it's tough being away from the cinema that said there's lots of stuff. I got like Netflix and Amazon prime now TV Disney plus Signed up, throw click off with stalls shudder. So there's no shortage of starters definitely no shortage I want to talk about. Just, just to before. So we miss the opportunity to speak about you know you've and companion to the action film So talk to me about what that piece of work. An well, a companion to the action film. Is An edited collection that was released in two thousand, nineteen and it is probably the most comprehensive collection of studies of Action Cinema. That's currently available. what I wrote about in that is a it was an interesting sort of combination of early interests and will recent ones because what I do in my ticket a chapter is I. Look at what I Call New Action, realism? which is to say an order to. On looking at a pattern, a particular kind of aesthetic that's developed over the past. Century the pause twenty years an aesthetic is developed across action cinema. Often I think is kind of a response to the to the more fantastic Bhushan. So you've got superhero you've got a Harry Potter, you've got the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit There's lots of fantastical which is fantasy science fiction type in so. kinds of action spectacle and kind of response to that or as an alternative with everything has been particular kind of grounded action realism. But at the same time while it's been grounded in might seem like it's it's this doing something more old-fashioned. Not really 'cause fantastic latched nothing new, but it is doing something distinctive and what it's doing new especially is incorporating the. Digital digitization most film leased as a shock digitally About what we have is. With the. But as well as a lot of cinema being presented digitally, but the terms of the way it's shelter in the way it's view whether we're taking come on TV, or in the cinema told sort of digital images. But also we're accustomed to digital images that we take ourselves. Most of us will have a fighting a cameron, all phone and we're accustomed to the constant digitization of images and this I think has led. Over the birth of things on Youtube that has given us a way to distribute and continue The kind of quick digital footage sometimes referred to as documentary ask but I think it's more amateur ask there's an Amazon aesthetic new action realism. which is which has come about I think with the similarity of this time Paul digital film. Of what I do in my study is I go back to that. That's the new thing but then the thing is I go back to looking at. Particular filmmakers. So I look at Michael. Men Again pool Greengross and Kathryn bigelow who I think three filmmakers who really embraced this aesthetic because they did make these kinds of high flying's fantastical films. They make material that has kind of the that he's trying to suggest something of our world I don't like to use the would realistic because I think it's too vague it suggests that and things but I think there is a close attention to detail of creating this would. putting on screen kind of. Very similar achieved which captured through this stuff. To work and the kind of films that looking at in Michael Mann's Casey's. Say this in bomb collateral Miami vice public enemies at his most recent film which very few people have seen black cat that came out in twenty fifty in the Naidoo highly recommend pull greengross in Kathryn, bigelow probably in high profile on. Greengross doing this particularly with the boom films as well as united, Ninety three and Captain Phillips. And the. Twenty second July, he's making these very fast urgent. Immediate films not necessarily digitally still utilize was kind of that. He was doing this thing before it was fashionable. But creating something that has this kind of urgent on the ground running back in the thick of it. And Kathryn bigelow famously, the today will into at won the Oscar for best directing she uses that aesthetic and Hey, want her Oscar with them. and. She's used it elsewhere as well like in zero Dr A and Detroit..

"I really can't wait to see how they they. Translate that to the to the small streaming screen. Maybe ob let the three D gibby films. It could be you never know. Look that good and speaking of mangled up stations. We've all we've talked about lone wolf and cub one very recent one made by a filmmaker. He's made many films of his. Blade of the Immortal Takeshi McKay very cartoony, but it's actually a third of a handful of Samurai movies. He's made in the last decade decade half David Yeah. He made The the one that really broke through with was his thirteen assassins. From two thousand and eight. And and then he did. He did a three d remake of Herrick Harakiri. which is which was which is very bold. Move for him because I wouldn't necessarily have like. Linked that material to to filmmaker as kind of playful and flippers he is, he is I mean Meka is kind of just just a bit of context. He's like this. He's a bit of a madman human. He's he's he kind of He. He I think he's done over one hundred films. He's he he kind of makes a couple of year usually like completely different genres, kids film, and then he'll do horror film, and then he'll do a gangster film and. Then! He'll do a gangster film and then a a Horror Samurai film, and and you know He. He's the kind of movie mixologist almost, but they're, but they're. They're kind of a couple of times when he. I guess he steps back in. It feels like he's doing something big in serious, and it feels like some of his his his Samurai films are ones that he's maybe like. A bit more seriously invested in I mean thirteen is is. Is essentially like. Very, very similar to seven Samurai. In the you know is is very slow-burn story where you've got an hour. Probably PROB-. It's probably about an hour of like these Samurai. Just talking in a heart about their plans of what they're gonNA. Do and is the most is you have to wait through some really contrived complex historically blocks of historical jargon. Lots of lots of local politics lots of. Lots, kind of law all this kind of stuff before you, and then he is almost to the point where he's a teasing you a bit, and then he then he he kind of. Breaks down the the the the damn, the dam is holding the blood. and. And you you you. Absolutely kind of rip, roaring finale, the is just kind of. You know is is not like the usual like little pockets of action throughout. It's like full on half an hour. Just completely over the top action spectacular and It's just. I, it's been a long time. They've seen it but I remem- I remember being on fire at one point being you. Cows on fire being used as like catapult fodder, and that's that's that kind of touches on the on what we're dealing with e kind of a not to to cry. He's kind of teasing you with serious Takeshi McKay, and then he's kind of teasing you again with crazy to cast Takeshi me K. and but the film feels like you know properly kind of fun, ernest, quite straightforward genre film and it just you know he does, he does that kind of thing really well, but you said you've seen I've never seen blade of the immortal. You said you've seen it and it's it's weird. I think coming after thirteen assassins and Harakiri which were both produced by Jeremy Thomas. Producer who you know had many house hits throughout the years with Kronenbourg Anki Tana and luminaries of the years and they premiered it can, and there's a lot of hype around those films. You know they're not like the five of them Mikhail films. He's made this year. This is something different and play. The mortal was touted as. His hundredth film. Yeah, I think so when it premiered out of competition at counter. And we yeah, it's just a bit more cartoony, but not really as. Lavishly violent as you'd want I think coming after films that. Are also coming out of the Asian Action Cinema. Last year's like the raid. The the action is kinetic and the the violences. Satisfying in the way violence can be. Blake the mortal came across a little bit too cheap in cartoon. Even remember the bit where because he is immortal, a the main character he had his arm chopped off and reconnect in availability seen I was a disappointed by excited. I wanted something a bit more earnest and straight from me. K., you know I wonder how he's been coping this year. Because surely in the six months of covid lockdown, he could have pumped out to films and a TV series. I'm sure he has done I'm sure I'm sure he he's got industrious I'm sure that if you checked in on him, he's probably got like you know ten credits. I suspect. He's probably also got three films that he'd shot that needed postproduction that he could have done during lockdown so. I doubt that I doubt that he'll be playing anytime soon so. But now this has been. This is definitely been like. I feel I feel even though we've named check some of the biggies. There are just tons of tons of other other films out there. That were seeking out. What what one film that I've I've actually got on DVD. I'd never watched is. Misaghi. two-part for seven Ronin. which is supposed to be great and I always I always remember the fact that his his version is like four and a half hours. To two pots big to part at. You know. And then they the Kiana remake was like seventy four minutes or something. So many films we could talk about I. Have a couple of DVD's on the pilot and get to sort of to another one. Where is to share a few? You're versus Tutsi in academia with an amazing jewel at the end, and the the Samurai trilogy one of the films that did cross over to the states in the nineteen fifties, but a bit more of A. Epic Melodrama and the Gone With the Wind Vane but listeners. Maybe there are some out there who've gone deeper down the.
"action cinema" Discussed on Midnight Double Feature - A Film Podcast
"Fucking good out to this one bit quickly but yeah really good. S- quick story about. It's interesting because when I first heard offscreen what they did is like the the idea is like hey everything you've seen dungeons and dragons and stuff. That was all in the past but magic was really hard to do so people are turned to technology instead and people forgotten about magic. A little bit in the concert. Is Tom Jones character and Chris Pratt character? Brothers Chris Characters like a big dodge dragons guy. Accept the differences like dungeons and dragons. They caught some now spittle. Dan Day day in day was based historically accurate and purge. No one else gives a shit about that stuff but turns out the father on the set on the sixteenth birthday. He gave him a spell and some stuff that can use spell to bring back to lie for a day but they fucked up the spell and he comes back legs and they've got to go on a big magical quest auto through a world that doesn't want to magical to finish the spell before sundown or they won't be able to make their dad and it's a really really heartfelt emotional story about a kid who never met his dad and just wants to meet him because he one chance as to overcome always fees and stuff it is very one of the mill by Disney is very it sticks really close to hear his journey but ends the very powerful message and it is really good characteristic. I cried like a little bitch at the end. All picks off to me and this was no different. I cried like crazy. One of the big differences though knows from most pixar films is it wasn't very comedic like they didn't have a Lotta Jerks intentionally like just like an adventure film which I can't remember. Loss time picks up did stomach that there's a few jokes about comedy is not their first approach and it's not a bad thing it's just something different which many inside inside our. Yeah too much comedy. I remember much but that film to be honest act but yeah generally like I feel like there's A. There's a strong balance comedy and the adventure sort of stuff in Pixel on. This did not care for that when I realized I was laughing as much kind of surprise but it's good. It's not breaking the wheel for pick saw but it's still a really good film. I'm going to give it an out of ten. I'm good school and and yet I I liked the little twist they did on that sort of fantasy. Mythology is pretty interesting and it's recommend Disney plus account and wants to justify their purchase. That's a good watch much out eventually. That's good okay now. A loss review for today extract. T- she on extraction a film which we talked about on last episode and be. Okay and then you send me attack saying per extractions fucking lit. I just saw it so yeah we both. Kinda liked this film. Don't stop going to kick things off. This was this was one of the biggest surprises. I've had in the last two months like this was this was damn good man like Holy Shit. I was so quick to judge this movie like wire trial but I guess like that's just the effect the trial had on me like I was like can I just say getting here view properly. I just want to say my first initial thought watching the opening scene had Chris Hemsworth on a bridge. Lewis caused pasta in military gear. And I thought Oh. This is like Sakaria car but I saw the scene or I'm used to carry. I'm like I think I will act this film. And that's racing thirty seconds into it man. This this movie was fucking awesome Very simple story. But it's a story that doesn't need to be like completely like complicated and stuff like that but I mean I think the truth star here is the stunt work need the way the action scenes a Fra Framed. And and the way they play out man is this the Sam Hogg arrived. Who's the director have action shops? Like as the hundred percent. He did stunt stunt work on the vendors films and other various marvel films and man like this is just such a a chance to Helsinki David. Leitch situation where they moved from Matrix to John. Wake and tell me blonde. The eleven minute sequence where we get cuts. There's definitely editing in Moscow. But men is that like a sight to behold and if you watch like the the behind the scenes footage of that of actually. Sam Hogg arrived on a bumper the front bumper of a car with a camera like his head's like this close to the ground. Erred it's staggering. How they filmed that sequence This movie this movie is brutal I wouldn't say it's like too brutal. I think this movie. Kinda like needs this amount of Brittleness but yeah like I love the way like the way though the way. They carry their weaponry the way they carry themselves. They that the soldiers. The police in this like feels very authentic. It feels very military esque And it seems it seems so real like the way the Hemsworth is like walking through this town square at the end. You know with his silence. M-4 I one. Which by the way is Michael of delight out it seems Sir Authentic and save so surreal. Like we've seen this story done plenty tons of full loan wolf and Cobb we've seen it in Logan Basically you know the older the older guy protecting a child get them from point. A. TO POINT B. We've seen this before but it's this this movie like it. It got me in the end like on. Our pleased is showing him standing. Please don't show him standing there at the pool and it like you know it was the the right amount of Blah and cut to black and I was like yes thank fuck like I don't WanNa say him standing there like I just start. I want to say that like you know. Make it make it so you know we think within or we like he's not there or you know. This kid goes back to like living his life under his warlord father imagines him like a father figure like whatever make it and big you like that Shit Yeah this this movie was astoundingly good. It's IT'S A it's an action film from start to finish by the way. This was the other that I was talking about. I was I was following this movie and it was titled Daca. Deitch AKA DACA That's the title. Yeah that's the capital city of Bangladesh. Which is whether obviously set. This is the second film produced by the Russo Brothers under the new studio Akbar the fest film was obviously twenty-one Bridges which wasn't as good but I like this trend like this I like how they giving these Avengers slash level Actors chance to shine in their own solo films. A Lot I liked. What's what's happening here. And these films both feel like like inbetween like the not be great films. But they're not like triple a blockbuster billion saw like the they're like they're like big action films right without being too small to big. It's a nice. It's right in the middle. Yeah it's written by who has written anything before so I just want to commend him for that as well. Because the pacing in. This movie is pretty fucking solid. I I didn't I didn't I didn't feel any any lag or any like slowing down or anything like that. I just thought it was really really solid and Hemsworth does a good job dude. Like he's not. He's not playing the character that talks a lot but when he does talk and like when he does have like interactions with this kid or Like actual action chops like he's he's fucking saw. This might be one of the best Chris Hemsworth performances. I've seen outside of thought. So yeah I agree with you. This is his snipe pizza. Yeah exactly and that surprise me. Yeah really really recommend this movie. Your Action Film Junkie if you if you just want to Kana like a breath of fresh air I like there's no ties to zero sequel or anything like that. It's just a a learn wolf like single movie in and out you know one mission very simple clear story line And you just WanNa some battles action. I recommend it highly I'll give it a nine. I'm going to go. Hi and give it a nine hundred. I was not expected to give a movie titled Extraction. Yes new everything's I have said insert here what I will say to add to that. Is that one of the big characters of this film which I had no idea. This was going to be a part of the film. Is the location. This film is almost entirely shot in India and Bangladesh. Dash is that correct and Thailand and Thailand's early filmed in Tom but at Seddon India and Bangladesh. Oh wow interest- interesting. I've never seen like a non bollywood film. I think do that especially for this long sir. Actually aesthetically is pretty and unique. And that's one of the elements that saves us from feeling incredibly generic because there is a dot being done that storyline The there are dramatic. Seines outside the action that really stand out heavily to made as the cool shot of him. Meditating on the water and it's a shot at him Jim up the cliff and there is an emotion saying in the round the middle point of the film. But there's not a lot stands out so so the little things what is what helps elevate the spill and one of them is the locations the incredible breathtaking eleven minute action sane in the middle. Maybe it's in the yeah around the middle of Film. I think it's fucking credible. I'm not going to say this is one of the best action films in the last decade. But I will say that was one of the best action scenes lost decade hands down what this film does really well and I'm going to have to heavily competitive John. Wacky is that it finds its own way to emulate that stall and put its own unique. Twist on Sir. I watched after watching this. My girlfriend I like. That's something else. I'm John Wick. Three after this and the difference is at really struck me because John Wake moves a lot his lot more faster and just more floaty. It's very inspired. Hong Kong Action Cinema while is still has downs element of realism with the colors and everything. It's very stylistic is very flashy this movie is there? There's still spectacle but it's not like stylized flashes. It's just more brute force. I'm not going to grab the wind sets realistic. But I think the key word you said was authentic. It feels authentic. And because you have a an actor Christians who is so Baath who is so tall. Lewisham mainly muscular. You feel the brute force behind every hit and it's really important in the bird that sane and also the the opening action savor the first one where he has to rescue the kid. 'cause also gripe highlight if at criticizes film which I do because I'm reviewing on a fucking podcast. Few small things I think after that big action saying nothing comes even anywhere close to it. I wish towards the end the climax it was it was cool but it just it had a compared to that big sane and that. I had that were just so much more stylistically cooler tomato and I just wish there was another thing that towards the end but another highlight. Actually before I forget it on this actor. Forget his name. I'll probably never be able to know my girlfriend. And I referred to his Indian TONITA. He was fucking cool. I would watch film with his as late. Misogyny ASSAD USE Yeah Chelsea Sajjan. He fucking like He. He stands Turtogtoh Chris Hemsworth and gives them run for his money. It is cool. He's cool and the thing is like. I wish this film touch the child soldier aspect one of obstacles is. You'll find all these. People are always Weiss more than him too. But it's like numbers versus brute force but there's like some as child soldiers and he doesn't WanNa Kill Them. You can keep makes that obvious that saying anything about it. I don't really do much about it by our wish. There was some I feel like. It's a missed opportunity. Here's the thing. I was thinking about a thing initially i. I'm glad they touched on it but I'm glad that didn't give us a resolution because really there's no resolution did yeah. I agree with you. I think it would be the wrong. Move to try and scare off. This is how we saved the world like it's not but I think there's some emotional elements core out of that and I think it's IT'S A. It's a huge missed opportunity to skim over that but still really enjoy the movie. It is a little bit of a slow burn. I think in the beginning. And if you're not a fan of subtitles and you only speak English. This might be a big obstacle. You wasn't for me but it might be some viewers. I'm GONNA give an eight out of ten solar word by Chris. Hemsworth basically didn't even need subtitles. My parents understood everything from grandma. I'm hopper from stranger things real quick David Tom. Asthma say. I'm proud of myself. I didn't realize it was in the movie when he showed up on screen them like a bet you within the next couple of saints. He'll turn out to be bad guy. I mean that's how it all right. I mean if you stores work but I'm happy I called it out and my girlfriend got mad at me because she thought I'd already construction. We're going to move onto a game. Md asking is.

"action cinema" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"To got spot CASS county. All right STUGOTZ. I have a funny story for you. That I can't tell right now. Involves me missing everything about the Michael Jordan documentary last night out because I was locked inside my home across the street holding a Festoon of balloons? Because it's Valerie's birthday today but we'll get to that in a second because I want to hear from you guys on what was good about this because I the story I have. I had the links Stugatz. I had the links to this. But what happened was I went and clicked on them this weekend and they were gone. They were because somebody. I guess some Internet site got some of the films and then they just lock everything down so nobody so the links I had for this documentary no longer work and we will get to how it is. I ended up across the street holding a festoon of balloons in. I want to hear from you guys on what was interesting about last night because I actually have not seen it. I was looking to watch this along with America so we could talk about it. And all I have seen is bits and pieces of some of the episodes and I'd seen one and two but I am not cut up now so I will let you guys lead a discussion on whatever is interesting on front. But Mike won't shut up about extraction now my as as a moviegoer. Mike's Tastes run. Almost right between you and meet STU gods. Because he'll come in more excited about anything then a great action movie. He claims mission impossible. The latest one is the greatest action movie of all time now. I said his film of All time here in mission impossible fallout okay. So but Mike Mike also likes his stuff but he's shouting at you before the show starts stu gods. I'm telling you. Go Watch extraction on Netflix. It's this Chris. Hemsworth who's like impossibly man is so much man it's crazy fanning myself crazy. This dude is the most man in all of the men in ever in Hollywood in terms of voice how we looks. He's just he's beautiful and evidently this movie is something that rivals mission impossible in terms of action. This was in terms of the cinematography of action. Movie it has probably the best tracking shot in the history of Action Cinema. This director same hargrave did such an amazing job with it. But I'm going to sell this to Stugatz in one sentence. The title the the main character his name is tyler rake. He kills not one but two people with a rick. I'm there because Mike and I share the same sensibilities when it comes to action movies. We love mission impossible. We Love Topgun. We point break. I will sprint extraction. Perhaps tonight I will also tell you the last dance is certainly in my top five action movies I. This is unbelievable last night we glimpse into one of the strangest characters to ever play in the NBA. Also underappreciated and that was Dennis Rodman so that was fascinating to see how Robin fit in with Jordan and pippen and some of the things. They went through together as teammates. Robin Jordan not particularly close friends but Jordan realized his value and realize. How much needed Dennis Rodman to win those championship? The best car. May I ask you question about that because I read a story this morning about Michael Jordan flying to Vegas to whole Dennis Rodman out of bed? While Carmen Electra hidden in the closet was the New York Post reporting that exclusively or was that something that was discussed last night in the film now disgust last night in the film where Jordan had to go to. The hotel room took robinet bag. Carmen Electra pointed out. I was hiding in a closet. Jordan said I will not tell you describe any single thing I saw in that bad or in that room. I just went in there to get Dennis and get Dennis back to the team. Get Dennis back to practice. But I was explaining to the guys Mike Durant because now I think it finally makes sense to them having seen the movie when you lose to the Pistons and your Michael Jordan. What you don't do is joined the Pistons. What you do is you take yourself. Whatever summer played. You had scrap them. You get in a gym with Scottie. Pippen. You're getting the gym with Horace Grant. You come back and you do it again. You don't go out to the HAMPTONS and be wooed by the Golden State Warriors stuff. You do all right. Thank you work hearts for informing me not at all about the movie and just simply explain for the one million time your take on. Kevin Durant what I wanted to ask you. Stop Wagging Saucy Dan. Stewart's absolutely right here. Saw The documentary. This is saying major storyline in yesterday's. You actually get a real life rocky training montage Michael Jordan with antiquated workout equipment. Putting on fifteen pounds of muscle. This is absolutely dead on by Stugatz. They're telling you it was a big storyline. Throughout the movie it was them overcoming the Pistons. And how they went about doing that and so I think for a lot of people that was fascinating to see but he'd stayed together all right but okay fair enough more interesting to me. Was this in the film or was this just something in the article because the article was quoting Carmen Electra directly. Was it also in the film that Dennis Rodman after being pulled out of that vacation Vegas vacation in the middle of the season in God knows what condition after drinking and consuming. God knows much. How much in Vegas that? He ended up beating. Everyone in sprints the next day and also had fourteen rebounds against Karl Malone coming off the bench in that condition. You really need to watch the last dance. All this is cover the cardinal actress by the way incredible lighting on Carmen Electra. Fantastic covered the whole drill and practice. That has an age. Well because it's the year twenty twenty Dan. They covered all of that stuff. It was fantastic this documentary. It has gotten better week to week. You weren't lying about that. Well I am sort of lying about that because I made it sound like I had seen the whole thing and that I knew. The first two episodes were weaker than the rest of the series. That's coming from a bunch of people I've talked to who have watched it in its entirety. And they're you know like like minded. Then they weren't sprint. They were it was. The team was jogging around the core right. So every time fell blew the whistle. The Guy who was in last had to catch up and get ahead of the guy who was first in line and what Jordan demanded the team because he thought Dennis was hungover and tired from three days in Vegas. Hey everyone slowdowns a dentist can catch up. Otherwise we'll be out here. The tire night when they blew the whistle and it was. Dennis is turn Dennis Spree after three days of partying in Vegas. Dennis sprinted so fast and was so far ahead of the rest of the team. They couldn't catch Dennis leary. What is it that you wanted to say? They're billing the movie you talking to people. You're reading articles. Switch.

I and run a casino is a star in this movie. She is too so dynamic and compelling and emotional, and I actually really liked that this film despite being sort of like it's taken for women is allows her to be emotional and vulnerable. There are parts where she kind of just like. Breaks down crying a lot because she is so distressed over her missing daughter. And the film takes time to build the relationship between Ron knows a character and her daughter, and it's it's really good. It's it makes the most sort of its nor low budget, low key sequences, it looks incredibly sleek despite having a lot of sequences that for example, take place on like a moped or something like that. It's very good. I highly recommend checking this out 'cause it's just the kind of the what you see along with a lot of like South Korean or what else what other countries are like brilliant to like other Asian sort of like action cinema. And I enjoyed watching this in theaters quite a lot. It's insect US theaters now and. It is. Yeah, it's I had don't have a lot of experience with like other Vietnamese films.

My wife will give me a hard time killing in skinning the quote poor animals. I hunt during the game, she's mostly joking. But it led me to wonder what are some things that you've experienced in a game that a partner might have frowned upon. Thanks rail. You do Mike in Jacksonville, my girlfriend definitely hates the animals getting stuff in any of those games. I will also say that while she is a big fan of martial arts cinema and certain action cinema. She does not like super over the top violence and gore. So if I'm playing any mortal Kombat game, I am I do not generally do the fatalities when she is sitting on the couch, sweetie. She's not super into that. My wife loves violence and gore and she finally recalls playing soldier fortune into chopping up. All the bodies in a million places. But she gets mad at me.

Why would you should the horse, but not a partner my father when I was playing golden eye back in the day in the facility level?

"There was a shift for actors who wouldn't what you thought is action stars, like before speed or point break. I didn't think many people. So if calendar Reeves is an action style, he's just that guy from films like parenthood and Bill and Ted's, and then he kind of proves himself. And now he is John wick. You can't think of Keanu Reeves is anything but the action star that he is. And you know it was the same with Matt, Damon. Could you have seen Matt, Damon as soup spy before the Bourne identity, he's just, you know, private Ryan who Tom Hanks has to go save. And the guy from goodwill hunting, and you know, films like courage under fire, he is not an action star until he becomes one same with Daniel Craig in the bond films. So I, I think it's a definite shift between the big of in life action stars, and then kind of that moved to really good actors who we can make action stars. So much of action cinema, Lisa, my opinion from the nineteen eighties is it's plays upon the political climate of what was happening, especially when we look at the Rambo films in by that I'm saying Rambo, first partout, right? So much of these things. You know, especially like I mean, Reagan was quoting the Rambo films. He was quoting Clint Eastwood and you know, it's, it's it. The nineteen eighties cinema is such a strange combination of, you know, cocaine, steroids. Republicanism you know, and I'm curious, you know, you being British. What was the state of British at among? Were you guys trying the the, your hand at action films as well, or did you just leave that up to the American since they were kind of owning this franchise? I mean. We, we've always had a one action hero in the form of JAMES BOND. JAMES BOND is always being incredibly reactive to to to what's big in mainstream action film. So if you take the Roach more on film, the man with the golden gun that is clearly reaction to the growth in popularity. Bruce Lee films, he's there in Thailand. That's a couple of martial arts scenes live and let die is clearly reaction to.

"So he was great tool to also on a bit of Star Trek fancy because he played Garrick deep space, nine, I could scratch my Trekkie it with that one, but primarily the actors are from eighties nineties action films. So kind of it's it's more the peak of action cinema. I want to speak to actors who had kind of gone on to greater things will will maybe films that being in had kind of got them pigeonholed in those type of roles who were some of the people that you tried to get that you weren't able to get a. So I had a very big list that was several actors that I really wanted to get. So the one I really want to try and get, but couldn't Clancy Brown who played the cook in in Highlander. He's being in starship troopers, Shawshank Redemption in numerous films. But at the time ours writing my book. I think he had spent the previous year doing like an anniversary tool talking about Highlander and I don't think he was ready for talking about it again to me, which is understandable. I couldn't get would Smith's because the man is always working and michaeline side doesn't really do many interviews eased as and again, like would is is always working. So those were kind of like some of the names I really wanted to try and get. But to that busy schedules, I was agency in who were some of the interviews that you had to struggle for that you finally managed to snag. The last into the did for the book was Martin cove who plays a crease in the cross kid films and and Cobra KAI. And I'd been trying to get hold of him for months, and it was literally the point where it's kind of like, I've got to submit my book next week to the publishes a really have to interview. And I think it was the week before Christmas. That you know, I think he he was doing a lot of work as well, and he had just had a grandchild born. So obviously he was very busy, but he was kind enough to to to spammy an hour and I'm managed to interview him for that. And we told you about Cobra KAI, but he couldn't tell me at that point whether he was in or orono. And so I was kind of overjoyed when I saw him crop up in the season finale, which on may have just spoilt for people. He might know the scene. Well, what were the qualifications for you? Who were you looking specifically for like, these are the people that fit into the best Batty's of the of of film history? Basically, what I was thinking about was the actors that I grew at watching in these iconic films that many of us grew on select diehard. So unfortunately, Alan Rickman and Alexander Gujral replays college of pasta on, but there were loads of actors in that that would be were able to tell me about working with sedans Hayden who plays Eddie on the front desk..
