"Dumping the coffee on his shirt when he just goes full evil full, he'll. That's some good stuff there and then And, then I have the last two SAM gets. Revenge on Willy Willy goes to hell. And then Carl dies and goes to hell both Halcion's are great. The second one's really funny when they're pulling Tony Goldwyn away the shadows. Closer moves. That's split-second to be like. Is this heaven an? Sam. We're GONNA. Say what's happening good to see you. And then I guess you could have the ending of the kind of freaks me out. Just because of the reality of the emotions, or just because you believe that that's actually what happens when everyone dies snow when he says goodbye to Demi Moore goes on as you know I'm fantasies fully dead? I'm like half dead. It goes on like two minutes to long. I never really tapped in the emotion of it I the special effects are bad, ghostly swayze, the nineteen ninety version. We can put that in what stage the worse, but it's like. Just the s the CGI just is not there yet to pull that seat off, but it still works. It's still emotional. Let me tell you when like the minute that they linger on her face before she says that last time. I mean I can't not cry. That is all time for me. Yeah where are you guys? On Salmon inhabiting. Obeys Body. As as a reward, because I I did some in my research. I saw that that was one thing that a couple of critics like this would have been more effective if it had been Whoopi onscreen and they had done the scene where it's Whoopi and Dancing together and hugging one another I think it's an incredible scene anyway, and it's also like probably my favorite moment, but I forgot on rewatch how that plays out and how the Orlando seen earlier. You're like oh like. This should be Whoopi Goldberg onscreen. Well one problem is. He's way taller than Whoopi Goldberg so they're. Like that just like the physicality of that as always weird to me, but yeah, I think if they make this movie now, which will be a definitely be different of ways. Hundred Percent Whoopi Goldberg stays in that scene I. Don't think they switch over right. I. Think in Nineteen. Ninety America probably wasn't ready for that mean. This was an era when they were afraid to even acknowledge gay characters on TV. Show sure. So yeah, just I'm having a same sex dance kissing I I don't think. I don't think they would have done it nineteen ninety. I think they would do it now. Yeah I agree with that though I do think it it. There would be a significance to having it. Stay in whoopee body, because as we pointed out, it's not something that you would have seen in one thousand, nine hundred, and you honestly don't see it that often in major Hollywood movies now, but I also wonder whether it like the fact of it being like Oh my God it's like whoopie and do me would take away from the. Viewer to focus on anything other. Oh my Gosh! They're doing this and it's important that they're doing this, but then you're not really caught up in the emotion of that the actual last moments between Sam and molly. I think I'm okay with the choice. I think either way works..

"Lorraine BRACCO Goodfellas Mary McDonnell would dances with wolves which I think. Everybody thought she was GonNa win and then Diane Ladd and wild at heart was our token old person. You need ended career one, but that's about as good as we're GONNA. Get with best supporting actress, right? It is, and I also think it's a best case. Result because you know, we talk a lot about how the Oscar is. Don't acknowledge comedy or comedic performances, and if someone does get nominated for a community performance, which I think you have to argue at that Whoopi Goldberg is is the comedy part of this movie as well as being as. Chris said like the emotional connector and having a nice moment with Sam at the end, but normally if it's. Nice to be nominated and the Oscars for that for the comedic actor or actress, and in this case she actually wins which is Great I. Wish Askar's would do that more often agree. Chris made the key point to. She's not doing a bit. It's not an SNL sketch. Which I think is what eventually happened to her as a movie actress, she's doing. will be as the SNL. Sketch would be as the over the top. Whatever this is a real character I, really like automate Brown and you know it's a good character because they easily could have spun off. no different than like Tommy. Lee Jones in the fugitive when they bill US marshals around him. They could have made the Omay Brown us. Yeah Chris. How did that not happen? They miss that I know there's one thing I. Think the thing that this movie has going for more than almost anything and is the reason why it's a remarkable is. It's no more no less movie. It is just in a perfect little container. If it had gone on for fifteen more minutes if there had been fifteen more minutes of Willie and Carl if there had been fifteen more. More twenty more minutes of bay, or if there had been a sequel, or if had been the further adventures of Oda Mae, and like Sam joins her at some point and they'd venture. This movie is so perfect because it's so perfect, because it just fits right into its lane, so I I think that's why, even though you might be like man. She could have carried her own movie. They. They just had the good sense not to do that. Oscar movie Zaire dances with wolves. One goodfellas lost famously ghost was in there, and then awakenings and godfather part three, just a classic all over the map nineteen. Late eighties early nineties, movie or Kathy Bates one for misery, then best actor. Jeremy. Irons wins as class. Von Bulow Green performance..

"Older I have so many questions about this so. You think that that's it that after like either the Gremlins take you away or Patrick. swayze walks into the Rainbow Light. That's it is over depends life. You lead okay. Wow, your fear that Carl fucking Gosar coming man those evil shadow Goldsboro. Yeah. That's that's what's at stake. Chris just asked beach. Lewis Chris. You don't like that. You don't like talking about the afterlife. I didn't realize it would make you this openly. Asking you to flatliners as a rewatch like I am I'm ready to go I. Want to find out what's on the other side, but you you. It's definitely not like two dimensional demons that rise out of the shadows sewed and we to hell. How do you know? Do you believe in purgatory? Do I believe in purgatory. Yeah I. Think I'm in it. To growl and. We definitely believe in God. I, believe in says we covered the got down on Kandari arena. Who can we talk about whoopee or what? We're GONNA get there, one second. The screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin. Quote WanNa Tell Ghost story from the ghosts perspective. He was inspired by Hamlet. And the Ghost of hamlet's father saying revenge, my death thought wow. With that look like is the Twentieth Century Movie Somehow Jerry Zucker ends up directing it now. But I was growing up the sucker brothers and David. Abraham's was the other Guy Dave Abrams. Kept his name they made airplane, they made naked gun airplane to. Their comedy guys. So Jerry Zucker was directing ghosts. That's like well. That's weird. This is a patrick. swayze Demi Moore movie about the afterlife wise like the Naked Gun, two guide direct this, but it had a really good job, Demi Moore said. I thought this was either a recipe for disaster. Something really special, really amazing, really an absolute bust. So she was like all in one way or the other, it ended up being huge. It won two Oscars wouldn't the Oscar for best original screenplay Whoopi wins?.

"Yeah at just a real physicality and come on bill of you seem dirty dancing. Recently I watch I'm a grown woman, and was just blushing I hope. My husband does not come in this room because I'm having some time with myself and watching Patrick, swayze move and you know that physicality does lend him to like being action star, but think dirty dancing is an anomaly, and that it's just like a great dance movie that somehow we all saw. It was not supposed. Supposed to be the hit and the classic that it was, and then ghost is a great example of using his physicality and his action star in service of ultimately love story, but they just don't make as many of those genre blend movies anymore, and so he kind of gets lost. If you're just making him in action star, then you're not really playing to the type of physicality that is speaking me Amanda Dobbins if you catch my drift, who has Patrick swayze now? I would say closest as channing tatum. Who is also a dancer and has a real physicality and kind of like the tough guy not. Not the most voluble of individuals better real charm, and you want to spend time with him and has done dance movies, and Romance and also drama producer. Craig Things Gosling I. think that's a good one to you not to spoil future categories, but I had gossiping has the same appeal when he's on screen I, just kind of uncomfortable and don't really WanNa talk, and just kind of want to sit and watch it happen, and he doesn't really have to talk either. He can be there and it's great I was GONNA say Jason Statham What? Referred Second So nineteen ninety was the secretly really. Fun Popcorn movie here. And there's a lot going on, too. Because just in general being a movie, Fan was really fun that you're. We've talked about a little on this podcast before, but that's one premier magazine is really taken off. That's when Goldman's reading. His New York magazine columns. That's when is entertainment weekly is at going yet. It is right. Yeah, so. And there's a whole it. We're not in that sequel. Comic Book Stretched Air So the number to movie that year ghost was one pretty woman.

"Parents House. and. You know it's like a chance to just get away for a few hours. Maybe have little dinner after and Kinda. Just what you did in nineteen ninety so I I was looking at all the movies that came out this year. Pretty woman was another one. I remember going to both of those on dates, but you talked about how this movie just stayed out. So, it comes out the weekend of July thirteen to fifteen th, which so it's a thirtieth anniversary this? It is still in the box office. Bake make another five million on Columbus Day, and if you look at the arc of it, it's basically twelve million twelve million eleven million, ten million by the week all the way through the summer. It's in the feeders for four months Chris, Wendy, the stop happening were movies were just in the theater for four months. This was like last fifteen years. Maybe I think whenever it was I mean when when the emphasis became on opening weekend box office which I don't really know when that was. But there used to be a time where it was like something we talked about this back to the future, whereas like back to the future was just in movie theaters for like a year, and that was one of six things. You could watch back to the future the news. Affiliates game or back to the future that was like all we had, so. We go to these same things over and over again. I, think you know a titanic must have had a huge opening weekend, but titanic was the last movie. I remember being in theaters for that long. Di Grew that you grew that. Amanda, I, do you anti-tank had the same? You gotta go back and see it again because you're invested. In the Love Triangle, aspect titanic movie I saw in Theaters Ghost. I, I was not old enough to see it in theaters or to go on a date. Sadly, so ghost instead lived on for me I really feel like I was giving ghost. Ghost and dirty dancing on VHS simultaneously, and it was just like here..

"It but they're essentially a bumper cars but tables have you seen this inner tubes. Yes it seems like people are going to have a bumper car interacting experience but they are inner tubes correct and they're not small inner tubes. No they're not. This is not going to the beach and putting on a blow up. You know ring. I think they're probably six feet. One thing that I've learned is that I am. Six feet is a different length to everyone. It's a hard thing to measure and and I have never been won with a great depth perception. So it's particularly hard for me. So in that sense I liked that there is like a literal measurement. It is pretty clever. I do you want to know that this is being in Iraq enacted at a bar so you are putting people in giant inner tubes and then giving them alcohol and then telling them to interact so I do hope that everyone at this Maryland bar is safe in the in the log term. I mean it is kind of achievable right. It only needs to be thirty six inches. Because if if you have three feet and the other person has three feet. Then there's you're six feet right. You're not and that is true from what I saw. It look like I don't know if it was the purveyor themselves. The restaurant bar who is responsible for this or if the individuals it looked like there was some decorating going on like the portion of it. Where you you're you're cited inside of it but the ring is too big so because you you you're your own person isn't isn't thick enough to sit inside of a an of that size so there has to be some kind of like a mechanism to to have it. You know connect to your body and it looks like people were entering aspect of it. We'll so I thought that was the table itself. Because they're their billing says innertube tables right if you think about it if you have an inner tube around you can't. I don't know how long people's arms are again not great with the with measuring amended. But it's it's GonNa be hard to reach a table. So you gotTa have a portable table and also then the table is self contained. And so you don't have to be exchanging with other people. It's very clever. I do wonder whether it's scalable. I don't think it is but you know particular restaurants. Ice Bar also had the benefit of being near the water right Yes yes. And so the the nautical theme now the thing that you touched on a bit ago. We don't want anybody to get So inspired by the alcohol component to think that it'd be fun to just go jump in the water with their inner tube table. I mean it wouldn't surprise me if if it happened. I'm giving points for engine. Nudie here right. That's the seem of this podcast and it's a very clever idea. I do hope that everyone is safe and responsible when using it does. I will say you know speaking of that. Ingenuity. I've heard a story where restaurant here locally that has its own. Parking lot is is setting up tables. You can reserve a parking space and they will come out with a table dinner ware and set it up in that in that space and then they don't put somebody in space next to you there. They won over. They skip the face. Yes so you can do some some lovely outdoor dining. The weather on the East Coast is beautiful right now. Some Nice alfresco dining this kind of ingenuity. It's it's inspiring a man. I am going to let you go but I have been over the several of these shows and other shows talking about my new found admiration for one. Guy Fieri. I've confessed. I am now a staunch And I've greatly admired. I've seen on the food network over the last handful of week. Several weeks of the shows that he's doing he's repurposing some of the Triple D. shows some of those personalities. They're sending him food. He's making it at home and it's been inspirational in. Its own way. I just want to touch base on the fact that one of the stories on our list was him and Rachel Ray doing Giant donations to to food charities and restaurants and sewer service worker funds. Just you know I I now might have to just have the Guy Fatty moment on house of cards. It's just going to be the fee each corner. I don't have to come up with a name but Shot shouts to guy. Keep doing it. My Guy Keep doing your thing. Rachel Ray guy fee eighty give big to food charities restaurant service funds. That's one of the things that the hungry home he's out there can can check out and props to my man absolutely everyone using their platform to do what they can. Which is a theme of all of these events? All of these new stories that we've covered. It's it's really inspiring. It's a theme for us to. We're doing our best. Amanda Dobbins an Awesome Food News. Thank you so much for coming on. And Best of luck with the head noodles. I want you to do them. I really dying for you to do the head noodles. I'm always glad to be here with you and I'm very glad to have been here for this public challenge because now there's accountability so now I gotTa do it. I'm going to do a lot of research and try to learn and I promised to try you. Conquer the fried chicken know the noodles are different but it can be done to the noodles require more just like hand coordination which is another of the struggles of Amanda Dobbins. It's death perception and using my hands to make things look good but I will. I will do some research. I will try to learn. You've put me on notice in public.

"The opportunity to talk has been championing. The interests of independent restaurant oppor operators but one of the sort of kind of a messages is the thing about restaurants is their capacity to figure stuff out and that really to me is what you're talking about here and it does to me seem like you know we're there isn't going to be a return to the way things were. I don't think that's really possible For a whole sort of variety of reasons We don't have a way out yet. In terms of you know everybody feeling safe and secure and able to sort of get back into places where we can all be near each other. I mean there's a whole myriad of challenges in front of us but this kind of innovation to me does feel like there could be a kind of permanence now again. It would be great to not have to need food banks. It would be better if people were had stable employment and we're able to earn money and then take that money and go buy the groceries that they want for themselves and and care for their families and friends but as long as food banks are out there this kind of innovation. This kind of figure it out. I stuff mean this is what what what were. Where do this is what we're all about? I'm not going to stand up and sing the Star spangled banner. Banner Right now but you know I grew with you. It really is inspiring and you everyone I do. Think looks for these these moments of hope and also just as a model of what can you do kind of like? Here's a model of of of what you can do. I wanted to share with you one more detail from it that I just I thought was so lovely so another of the of the food. Kitchens is in is in south Florida where they obviously have a lot of citrus. And so here is Chrissy Benoy. Who is the general manager of a Food Bank Florida? Who's going to plan to do with that? She's like we want to do. A lot of citrus marinades. You got a ton of flavor and it adds to the meets. We see a lot of oranges lemons and lives around here. And I like I just loved the specificity of that and making do not just making do but turning quite literally lemons in this case in two. Maybe not lemonade. But like a lovely marinade and making the best of it and Or or making it slightly better at least if not the best of it and I. I thought it was great. I'm here for it all right. Well that's a great story to kick this off. Let let's hit a couple other high notes so we mentioned Jose Andreessen. I you and Jason. Gay spoke about him and all the incredible work that he is doing last week. And I think we're just going to do that again. This is really a a profile of of hose. Andrey's on CNN business. And the headline is why this chef keeps showing up disaster zones and it's a great overview of the work that he has been doing for a decade now with though. World Central Kitchen. And why he's doing it and again some of that infrastructure of like how it works and what we were just talking about Was a little bit of an example of things breaking and people not having that infrastructure and very quickly putting into place. But I think what's been so amazing about hose and races that he has already been working on this infrastructure. He identified that getting people food after a disaster is a real problem and here are some ways to do it. Not just the humanity but although the humidity is like extraordinary and what he's doing but also just the the effectiveness and the logistics. It's very hard to do what he does at the scale that he does. That's the whole point. I mean that's not the whole point but that is a a one of the points that's most fascinating to me. Which is you know. You basically had a chef a successful chef who knew how to do food across a number of restaurants in a number of places and relatively upscale all of his restaurants in Washington. They're very accessible but they're they're nice. It's not like white tablecloth. Necessarily they're open in welcome opening and there's a welcome kind of experience. But how does a guy like that? Think about his own sort of station in life and recognize. Okay I I can do something meaningful when folks run into something real and I want to jump in and do it so he he did it right. I think Haiti was one of the first the earth there was you know the massive earthquake in. Haiti was one of the first things and it was like. I'm going to call up this person that I know that can provide air transport and so we sort of get the getting their part get solved and then you know the actual physical cooking aspect of it and that's the part of it to me. That is so fascinating like the scale. How can you turn out ten thousand meals in a day in a place that's been laid laid the way spot by an earthquake and I honestly feel like you know Jason Made the semi serious observation that this guy should be running for a Nobel prize at some point But he could also. I think go to Harvard Business School and do logistics. You know do a course on on logistics or any business. It doesn't have to be harbored. Any business school in the country right and do like let me talk to you about the challenges and this is how we thought about it and this is how he conquered it right. Yes absolutely there is both. He is a really inspiring spokesperson as well. And I think you know this piece and all the work that he does he can about. Why the work? That he does is is so important. And what food means to people which you know is important connecting to people but then just backs it up with just like a massively sophisticated organization that already exists. And that's kind of what I keep thinking about it. I felt a lot that in recent weeks and we don't have to go down and policy things but a lack of preparation and a lack of foresight and this is a person who saw a problem and understood what food means to people. Not You know both in an emotional way literal way and figured out all of the issues and it just kind of like okay. Where do you need me next? And it's it's his innovation on this. It's a nonprofit and non governmental nonprofit. Now he does have to collaborate with the local governments to make sure that he's meeting the standards but also the best effective way for him to get you know the most food to the most people is to be in in concert with in partnership with local officials. And and you know like the police the fire. Those are the people that that that need to do. The eating right there public employees. That are in the first sort of you know in harm's way in the first place so it is a public private partnership it. Does you know where you again. We won't go down this policy thing but like you know. Local governments could could take a lesson in terms of the resourcefulness and thinking about for their own selves. How can you you know what are lessons to be learned from from this guy and his outfit? Yes absolutely I mean get everybody. Who's making decisions? A copy of his powerpoint is is what I have to say. That's the point life. You could go on zooming. Yeah it's really inspiring. I wanted to share one more hoes. Andreas related thing with you. So all of the work that he's doing incredibly important in and a you have been focusing on it so much and you know. The ringer obviously is raising money for the the world central kitchen. So we'll continue to talk about that but I just great instagram presence. From him as well. He posted a ten minute instagram video last week from his home with his daughter. Carlotta and they gave you. They said it was ten kitchen tips for quarantine nine because they only got two nine and she has there in the home and he has his stations laid out and he's going wants to the other giving you quick tips. I'll give you a couple. I don't want to spoil all of them. Number one is how to make a beautiful creamy dressing for an avocado with like the last bit of Mayo. That's in the jar that you never really know what to us. I had this last night and I like unfortunately I did the squeeze bottle instead of the jars so I couldn't do it. Jose Andrews taught me which I felt really bad but I had watched it and I was like. Oh that's great. The second tip is what to do. If you have an annoying party guests who keeps coming into the party being like what can I do? What can I do? Give me a task? And he suggests asking them to peel blueberries cousins rude. That's the point and what I liked like. They'll never come back in. You'll be very happy. He's he's prepared for all situations. Okay cocktail there's had appeal a tomato. There's what should you if you don't have milk but you do have unconvinced valk. Oh okay which. I have had condensed milk in my home for a long time. It's one of the key ingredients in key lime pie. I had never thought about the fact that you could condense it. Even though it's there in the title it does. It does seem like it. I have led a nearly milk. Free Life since my son was born because we found out early on that he has a milk allergy. And we've been plant based milk like drinks and you know all may the milk industry doesn't like it if you call all those drinks milk but almond milk nope milk and plant based milk and all that soy milk. That's been my life for about eight or eight or nine years but I mean let me hear it. How do you condensed the condensed you put water in it and stir okay? That's what I would have guessed. I understand that it's unbelievably obvious. And I understand like I I get it trust me and also that it literally says condensed milk on the can't like I do you understand individually what those words mean and also I have a knowledge of how to uncondemned something but in a million years. It never would've occurred to me. I think it's something because the consistency of condensed milk you know off and also I have sweetened condensed milk. That's right of course that's it. That's right so he wants to Sweden's in there. It's like it's taking me farther away from the original product but the consistency is very syrupy in a way that I just kind of and sticky. So you don't think that it's going to make its way back to milk. So there's just something about like the distance between the product itself and the origin that I just I don't know I I just wasn't thinking about it. There are other things to be thinking about. I agree with you. The degree of difficulty seems very high to get it restored to what we would traditionally think of milk. And if you're in that moment semi-panic moment like I have this recipe that calls for milk and I can't go get milk right now. It'll ruin my flow trying this technique. It could feel daunting Because you WANNA get it right. You don't WanNa blow the recipe with with them unconvinced. Condensed milk he really did. Just want to tell you on the video. He poured water in it and stirred. And that is just like it's like I'm a four year old watching science I was like. Oh my God. It's so good I love it. So those are the type of tips you know given with real flair and also there is a time to element for it even though there is no reason to because they're just in their kitchen and it's very charming. He's with his daughter. He's making fun of his daughter. But in a loving way it's great stuff. I recommend the content and useful tips on you if you don't have milk. Amanda this is Great. I am going to at the end of this. I'm going to go And I won't make you sit through it and I'm going to remind everybody all these these things that we're pointing them towards we have Michael. Twitty's book we have this great story in eater dot Com.

As you know we have been doing some shows here lately where we've been exploring the ways that all of us have been dealing with the effects of of saying at home and cooking at home and what it's meant in a lot of different kind of walks of of food life. Of course that means there is lots of food knows out there and today we thought it made sense to look at some of the Food Hero. Some uplifting stories in the world of food and restaurants and give some shine gives him attention to those folks our beloved pal. Amanda Dobbins is on the line with us. What'S UP AMANDA? Hello House. I'm honored to be here for the return of food is so you were all one of our first guest on the Ringer Pantry. Party where Lots of folks like you. Graciously invited us into their kitchens to walk me and our beloved house of carbs audience through what was going on in your own kitchen and how the fridge was populated and I have a question for you from from from that experience we left as an open question you as you said. You had some ambition for a particular dish that dish was. You're craving Szechuan food. And you said you were thinking about some hand pulled doodles some see Schwann pepper corns by question to you. Amanda is digit do it? I'm really sorry to disappoint you and I haven't done it yet. I have the we had the pepper corns and I still have them in the fridge and I have been cooking with them a bit to. Kinda scratch that issue but the hand pulled noodles are a quite an undertaking they. Are you know a tradition over hundreds of years? I believe from northern China. And it's really difficult there are. There are a lot of steps and I haven't been brave enough. I'll be honest. I have watched the videos. I've thought about it and then I've said you know today instead. What I'm GonNa do is we have ordered takeout from several restaurants in the S G. I have I finally did the. We've got the freezer full of frozen dumplings. From Mama lose dumpling house which is very exciting to me so but I did instead of the noodles. I didn't do the noodles and I'm GonNa try to spend a negative into a positive for you. I have one thing that I did do which is despite growing up in Atlanta Georgia and being a huge enthusiast of fried chicken. I had never actually fried chicken at home. I was too scared. Is You know we talked about this on the show because you mentioned chicken salad and for a half a second there? I was confused by which kind of chicken salad like salad. Greens or you know the traditional man as base chicken salad and You confessed in that moment that you hadn't really tackled fried chicken in earnest please. Let's hear about this. I think it's because there are many places who know how to fry chicken like beautifully certainly in Atlanta where I grew up. And and all of my you know grandmothers and aunts and uncle. It's just like I didn't need to be doing it but in this particular case I did need to be doing it and I think it's another one where there was like the reality of like the actual frying. I don't do that every day at home. And so it seemed a little intense and so I used a recipe by Julia. Tertia do you do you? Are you familiar with joy attrition? Not Not really. She's a wonderful cookbook author. I'm using her cookbooks. Small victories as part of my mic. Stand here at home. Yeah you have a whole bunch of cookbooks as your beautiful array and that's not just special for House of cards. That's what I use for. Every podcast but at the top here is the well used. Small Victories by Julia Attrition. And there is a buttermilk fried chicken recipe in this that we've been using and that is fantastic primarily because she's really good at explaining how to do stuff in a way that doesn't that makes it not scary and the thing that she suggests for. This fried chicken is to do it in a Dutch oven or in a like an a`deep pants so that you don't have to be as scared about the splatter or just the mess somehow it made. It seem like a lot more accessible. And so you marinate the chicken for twenty four hours and buttermilk and some spices and then you just fry it and she liked calmly explains how to fry it and I did it. And it's amazing. Oh what a what a victory a rare Q. Life success.

"With traffic cameras. Plans out memorable bucket carry on best quotes you mentioned earlier. Men are coming to kill us. We're going to kill them first rate one. Yeah I mean mommy was very bad. Mommy was very very every bet. So good really good. Let's go with that for best quote than could this be remade as a ten episode Netflix show. I will say I would watch a Bond Netflix show. I would if this was just like Peter. Morgan make the on Netflix show. Yeah but here's what we're GONNA do everything has to be filmed on on-location. Yes it has to be this production level. Okay and I have not seen a Netflix show including the crown which I love also written by Peter. Morgan is not at at this level of an eye as a spy head spy guy would love mix show where there was just this reckless alcohol gasol who is the centerpiece of but it's not like I don't have enough of that in my life. If and when that happens what you're describing I tell you know. Movies are dead if bongos to Netflix. Would you watch a bond spinoff in offshore some point of some some kind when you said am I six show I would watch Judi. DENCH's M and kind of all the internal politics you know every other there's some like extended set-piece refunds playing like going to Whitehall and having to go to hearings and like doing backroom deals yes. I mean just great house by Judy. Dench in this movie. They ran a drink where you weren't did they. I would spend more time there. I just don't care that's fine I just I I I see I care. I don't care the the grand jurors was part of. That's what this series is right. A Barker outside of a marquee come on in in and see the greatest show in entertainment movies. That's how I get people listening. The movie starring Thanos probably unanswerable questions. I only had one which was really was was silva like what was Silva's relationship to 'em beyond if anything he was just an agent that she screwed over like what causes the like. I was took it pretty literally. Yeah I mean I don't even take it. I don't I don't actually mean like did. She literally adopted him at some point. I just like I would love to know what kind of transpired fired. I guess it is the trauma of the cyanide pill and it'd be a prequel that could be interesting. You silver the SOCIETAS. Yeah so then Hong Kong though it seems like she she gives that very quick explanation. or She's like I cut him loose. I got six agents in return. But she's not to be trusted. She's not to be trusted. But I think you know whatever happened. I think it's something that perfunctory I think. Because what you're supposed to walk away from this is that these agents really are just agents of the state and changeable all and no one cares about them even though the bond relationship at the end is like very moving That's in defiance of how this is all all arranged. One of my favorite parts about this movie is watching Judi dench's face when she's in With Bardo because it actually. You can't tell sometimes like whether or not she's just like this guy the discussed actually legitimately terrifying me Because the especially at the end when he puts the gun and he says do it to both of us like he puts the gun to her head and he puts his head next to her. We didn't really talk about that much. Like the whole ending of the movie. An EMS death but the way in which that transpires she seems legitimately disturbed by him. uh-huh yeah acting but Judi dench good actor you think about her career. She's not really in that many situations where like a very tall man in a blonde wig is just doing Sova. And then there's or even that there's a gun or her head what's really exciting about this guy fall sequence Judi dench's Kinda doing some actions at least for Judi dench and I would expect it as a new situation. -Tuation for her. Yeah no I read that. This is the most screen time by far than M ever had in a movie. All the James Bond movies which is interesting to the idea of leading her really be the coast are the movie who on the Movie Barber Brockley. I think it really resets him. Andy's career I always say the director because I can't get that out of my head but it doesn't send a spectre and now he's got nineteen seventeen coming Out this this winter also with Roger. Deacons you know. I was kind of nowhere in the movie business. Because of the way we go and he would have been able to get stuff media but it does it reaffirms his place as the top top top tier because he took a franchise property and got it more awards and more money. I mean what's more powerful than that and I think it does the same thing for the Bod franchised sure and certainly james bond wins every juvenile said and makes it people really excited about it again and and reminds people have the possibility inherent in it. Yeah so that everyone is still excited about all all of these movies. Despite the fact that it's coming up on the twenty fifth bond movie and people are super overloaded with franchises and spice stuff shared universes and all that right and also obviously I'd like Brexit and everything it's an it's an old conservative character might scaife on manages to address all of those issues at once. I it's weird it's like you. I don't think it's the same movie with them you know. I don't think it works. If it's geoffrey rush or you know Johnny Depp for I guess somebody who hasn't been canceled might be nice trying to think of Allen Actor X. Louisi- replacement placement actor. They're wearing Khakis hanging out. I just don't think that they do is are out of control. I never doing these Friday afternoon again. I don't think that you get the movie without him. But I still think Mendis okay. What do you think using Burnham? I'm no I think I think the Broccoli Family James James Bond Franchise. I like that. I'm convinced on a film unders. Yeah known I think James Bond like James Bond continuing as a powerful force in in our lives as movie goers is. That's feels right. You deserve a sandwich and cold Heineken. Yeah well we're Khakis right now. So you can imagine how excited I am search for Amanda Dobbins and Sean Chris Ryan this has been the one..

"Sounds like looking like bill. It's awesome it's awesome. All right I I. Don't I agree with this but I am outvoted as always a song stabbed her in the heart Hafez Internet research so he gives it to the boat captain because I want us all to be friends okay. Best Internet Research Yale. Professor Stephen Carter believes that there is a deeper deeper mystery to Silva's relationship with 'em namely that she is possibly his adopted mother role. Silver is an Anagram for a rival rival Seoul. Okay all right and think on. Your sins is an Anagram for your son is in NHK Hong Kong. So you can read. What about this on Bloomberg? There's lots of posts about this shadow to Yale producing such a great mind that he thank you. Thank you there is basically school of thought that quote Unquote James Bond. Air quotes is a code name. It's called code-named Erie. So you can read about this. It's basically the idea that James Bond is the name used by lots of different characters throughout time but that each actor played a different individual that they're not all James Bond. They're not all existing in it. There are some feints towards continuity with different character or different actors. But that James Bond is not just one man but of all these different people people who played them in James Bond was like a code. You can go for that. You're not In that no. I didn't think that you would but I wanted to bounce it off of you. I mean it's it's plausible and I think I just think it's over thinking it. I think that there is a not especially before Casino Royale. There's not that intention attention to this series especially the movies they are. They're just making movies to put this character in weird situations and then have him look cool and attacks. It's it's tricky right because I think on the one hand our best heroes Superman or james bond don't expire. They're always is there. Is there for us to be heroic. That's like part of the appeal of the hero figure but also like you mentioned forgiving earlier. If you look at the rocky franchise some some of the best movies about those things are about the person coming to terms with the fact that they're not as powerful as they once were learning. They're not able to do things that they do. The Genius of this movie is is leads. Both yeah you know you get to have the. There's only one James Bond in every actor that has played him basically playing the same person but also that person's getting older in life is harder and they have a lot of problems right. There's an another wrinkle to this which is that There is a theory out there on top of codename theory. which is that James Bond in this movie? He does not know about codename theory. He thinks he is the only bond. And that basically that he has been brainwashed into thinking he was an orphan and and that Silva is also a James Bond. He thinks he is a James Bond. So the is James I've done is like you know there is why we have to make everything so literally Dahlie that with this this franchise in particular were so many of these movies were made during a time when they would just be like well. We brought back same actor who used to play the sky five five movies vs ago but he decided to do one more movie but we do about the dead way from the other movie in this league story about it. We used to just not worry about stuff. Yeah is the appeal of it or we it Chris and I did you. There's a reason that you're not at James Bond nerd and that's because you're sitting there making all of the spreadsheets and you're just like what about the Glove Majesty's Secret Service and This doesn't line up in my room. I won't. I won't argue that. I have a superior mind. Okay if that's what you're worried about my desire to organize and understand in the long chronology of a tail makes me a more sophisticated film viewer and Just a big supporter of the true arts. They really. I'm really sorry about that. Okay anyway the reason why Silva is a bond and the reason why he has gone through the same experience because when he arrives at Sky Fall he apparently like knows the place. Like if you watch it from that. Because he's a fucking spy and he did some recon you know everyone's trained to know every none of this is real and I think uh-huh none of Israel so they're all Jeannie says who have the plans of every single place. They're going to go in their head ahead of time. Which of of course is untrue? And also like James Bond doesn't survive the fall at the beginning of this movie house. You could know what it looks like. Yeah Google maps great. Yeah that's a great point. Did they have that in two thousand twelve. I I bet on the Macau Island. When he's like slowly downloading files? He could get some Satnav going. I think this thing. It's great that people want to invest in movies. However they want the best movies and I don't take that away but what's a bummer? About all of that is that it like. It's taking things that are in the movie and big themes just I can't accept them as like large archetypal like emotions or ideas and has to kind of game them out. Let me ask you this. Would you like some continuity in these movies. Would you like to feel like the three or four movies. You Watch after sky fall and they'll probably replace bond we can get to that but would you like to feel like there is one story. We're being told over several movies. And maybe they reset it when they get a different. Because if that's the case then sky fall is the last bond movie like this. This is the logical end to the franchise Johnson and it. I don't think they'll make another movie as good as this one with craigslist with credit lease because it is there such finality -ality to it and it is dealing with the largest themes you can't really go bigger than that. It's like the the emotional or thematic version of mission impossible. Now we got to put the helicopter on the cliff. I find that something I would. I would slightly disagree with that. I think that you're you're right that in terms of the classical approach and a lot of the Shakespearean stuff that we're talking about and not necessarily selling selling out some of the ideals and coolness of the franchise. I think that's true. I think this is like as close as they're going to get to prestige masterpiece on the other hand. This is like A. This is a a franchise that very rarely takes risks and they have a real formulaic approach to their movies now. This movie's medically deep but structurally it's still pretty similar. and I wonder if someone like cary Fukunaga who's directing the next movie who is a formerly dynamic. I would say is is GonNa try to break. Some things apart is going to try to do something new now. The Broccoli family as you mentioned Chris very controlling yes. This is very important and this is what they do. Well it's an interesting contention between like director and producer the producer's like this is my family's heirloom so like if you're like Danny Boyle and you WanNa do me to bond or whatever it is that you want to do do like that doesn't work for us if we WANNA keep making movies and ten years. Yeah we want sustainability so I just wanted to balance that theory off of your and see what you thought of like the idea of a unified theory of bond that. There's something like there's conspiracy theory within this movie. I just think it's too hard with one person to do. The unifying theory and then keep making movies and taking the chances. You're trying new things and I don't think that at least Daniel Craig will have another movie as good as sky fall but I would like to for them to keep making bodmer dream big. I'm okay actually for them to keep making trying. I cannot wait for the for twenty five right like sign me up. I look forward to the bond movies. So do whatever you gotta do to make it work some more half ass Internet research. There were a couple of other titles considered for this movie silver bullet a killing moon which I enjoyed although not really sure. Sure if there's that many moons in this movie and once once upon a spy were alternative titles yeah see the once upon a time in Hollywood thing is just really doll coming to the Interior of the Golden Dragon Casino in Macau were bond meets every was actually pinewood studios shadows English Ingenuity but they did visit production visited China Turkey and local cows all over England shy everywhere in London and they went to Scotland. glencoe is where Sky Falls Silva's Silvas island as I mentioned before was shot off of Macau but is based on has shema which is off the coast of Nagasaki and was like an abandoned mining town. It's a real place. Yeah so you can go. Whether three G that three g there at Dave dial okay prodigy you put the disk in Cool Alta Vista. I'm GONNA throw a curveball at you guys but if there's two people in the world I trust to handle it. It's okay for casting couch rather than casting any of the roles in this movie. I would like to talk about who should play James Bond. The next oh wow so there's two versions of this conversation There is the angst ridden widen. They make Idris Elba Bond. A were kind of talking about exploding. The identity of James Bond is should it be a woman should should it be a person of color. That's one way to approach this. It's it's actually been like a pretty driving and now ultimately kind of cliche conversation point I think interest there's Elba's like way older now than any bond who had been previously cast at that point so that I think that part of the conversation is over. That wouldn't stop someone like Daniel Columbia being a potential bond. John Doesn't interesting talking point he kind of fit some of the profile. As far as I mean do you WanNa just talk about white male. Brits who would do well that's really your lane. Lean thank you. Wow that's true there. There isn't really a strong classes and like for example. Richard good man who was in the yard bodyguard. Everyone was like okay. Now he's GonNa be the next James Bond. I saw Scottish I I I don't think that James Madden is right for fishermen. I'm sorry Richard Madman. What students you're just saying James Upon erasure mountain together I thank you Steven is the company anyway? Richard Madden is not my particular pick for James Bond. I think he's a little. He's a little wooden As evidenced by KRISTA screaming Vicky Lot wouldn't without maybe some of the layers of pain that Daniel Craig brings underneath That's the that's the difficulty of this is following up with a person who is as handsome appealing and different enough from the archetype. But also get actor. You need all those things need to be sexy. It'd be cool needle good with a gun and the other thing. That's tough. Is that all of the thirty something. British actors who are working are already and marvel herbal or other movies. So I don't know who there is. I mean like I was like Tom Hardy to play. James Bond. I I did. She won't take the fucking mask off even even when he's in peaky blinders and he's got a giant beer like he just won't be the kind of movie star version of himself which he essentially is an inception. He'd never ever did that. I also think if you were going to go way out of the box Kato who is a grime. MC WHO's in this show top boy is fucking awesome and I really feel like you could just be like take the kind of bond you've never seen before but you know I don't know I don't know what the Broncos are GonNa do. I mean going back to the just no come much. That's I think going back to the outside of the box suggestions the I don't know I the shouldn't be bond thing I don't need to put on my feminism hot right now and I just saw Charlie's angels which is such a depressing example of what happens when they try to market these things to women and suddenly the world's where soundtrack and everything written by the skin in is really dumbed down and I don't want that for James Bond at all but.

"I'm taking this scene over and has a stature and Gravitas that if she standing over six coffins often so fucking important that shot. That's that's a really that shots in the trailer and I remember just being like. Oh Shit. Yeah yeah so Judi dench literally early adult song to all-time Jam I have the locations because this is a very good and sensible group of sometimes times bomb locations are. It's like inside volcano downtown Tokyo and California. There's like movies I can get there. This is like sure Istanbul London. It's a very lund didn't centrum I feel like a lot of these. Movies are not as London centric. No this this area like board of terrorism. Yeah Yeah I mean that's the major theme of the movie. Also I guess one thing we didn't say about it. That feels important. That in particular is this was the fiftieth anniversary of the bond movies and they were all of this kind of hubbub that the Broccoli family put around that announcement so I wonder if that was part of the thinking and designing the movie was like. Let's remind people bull that this is about a British spy who's from Scotland. Yes and that. was that really the origin of this here and ends here and it. The the scene aim were one of my favorite moments when they. He's he's on the road with her and she's just like they come to the garage and she's like if you expect me to. I'm not going to spend the night here. No and he opened up the Morton's there and she's like Oh so this is an ostentatious at all. What else is age? The Best Waning Empire Empire just still waiting still waiting related British government. Like not knowing what to do a bunch of ministers being like. I'd like to talk some more audio Brexit Brexit. Yeah movies about middle aged man being washed up and confronting their life just very on trend for two thousand. Eighteen can relate yeah The cast as they just think not a wrong person. There's not a single like remained in the. Yeah and the the deacons of at all. Yeah it has. It looks if if this movie came out today I built. This is cutting edge. Shit yeah this is like this gorgeous. It has not doesn't look dated. At all I think the idea of casting a prestige person to make a franchise movie is Aging quite well or not a lot of examples of this before this happened and I think in a Lotta always and minis was at a weird point. He just made a way. We go which was his least successful. Movie starring John Krasinski in my Rudolph and then after coming off of American beauty massive hit best picture winner the road to perdition probably one of the most underrated movies of the twenty first century. You know he's he's on this like steady pace jar had revolutionary road. He's got this head of steam as a kind of prestige filmmaker. Not ever movie works but most of them do and then away we go comes out. Bricks says the failure doesn't really work for anybody involved and he kind of retreats to theater little bit. Yeah and there's like that whole New Yorker article about him right yeah. I think it's after this definitely it's about it's written by Don Meyer. I went him on this. Because there's a there's also a Jez. Butterworth profile which doesn't do a lot the bond but mentions casually that he's working on specter boat while it's while Jerusalem is kind of like. It's it's full heyday there. Yeah because I think that this movie lived up to something that people wanted James Bond to be be in a way because he he the character emanates class but the movies kind of. Don't yeah the movies are Kinda Schlocky like you said. They're kind of be moving their the thing they had to reengineer this movie. To be an event I mean I think that the bond movies in totality or seemed really big deal but if you watch any one of them on their own and like in some some of those the big action sequence is James Bond punches a guy and then he eats a cyanide pill and he's like oh I couldn't question then that's that's that's it I think bringing somebody like Mendis in it leads to things like Ryan Kugler to does creed and black pants. Instead of trying to pursue sue US sort of haughty prestige project. And that's pretty significant. Where movies are Ashworth? A bunch of other directors have dabbled with or maybe just thought thought they were GONNA do one. So Quentin Tarantino was always rumored to wanted to do a bond movie Danny Boyle was on the most recent bond movie and left. I think there's been some other like no one. They they I think they would just basically like break. The Bank for knowing by the producers of the bond movies are pretty hands on the other thing too. Is that Well there's A. There's a couple the things there one. Christopher Nolan doesn't make movies not Warner Brothers. So this isn't a warner brothers movie but more specifically Mendis just very openly lifted a lot of the dark knight aesthetic aesthetic for these movies. I mean the two movies that he made and I think Christopher Nolan's dark movies are also commentary on James Bond if you look at them from one direction button That elevated darkness. That was important to those movies. Mendis is manipulating and playing with and that idea of like an orphan who has to to avenge sins is like. That's not a mistake that those characters have so much in common. What else does the sweater that? Ben Wish take briefly about some of your favorite outfits in this movie. Yeah I mean the Daniel Craig's suits are obviously the fit is I mean like the literal fit not in the slang only recently learned that the slaying fit is short for outfit Steph. Way I that's where I am in my life talking Douglas Aging and fire anyway the literal way that suits our guide is tremendous and allows allows for movement while also just I mean he looks so handsome I really think wishaw is bringing a lot to every scene but that that sweater at the end and is a little PARCO that he wears in the museum. That's very cute. I you know moneypenny is like business casual nice for her and and who am. I forgetting I mean you have to love the Barbara Jackets and all this stuff. Oh my gosh. This Scotland. The Final Sky Fall. Look that James Woods wearing yes and the and the boots boots. You're forgetting an important one. which is that there is maybe only one person in the history of humanity who could ever wear that tracks that he wears when he's tree? Oh it's so good it's like back. That is actually probably made out of like the kind of wool that moves suits are made out over something. Yeah and it is. It is like guys at Oxford used to wear in nineteen fifty you too when they would take in the air or chariots of fire. And he's just in two thousand twelve rocking out with a low top adidas with no performance boosters or does no like career technology. She's just like this. Is How rod laver trained. And it's how I will train. I couldn't agree with this. I you're probably aware that fashion sweatpants are making making have made a comeback. They make look like terrible. Everyone needs to watch this movie. Your sweatpants should fit the way that Daniel Craig's sweatpants fit in the No. You shouldn't look like you walked in the Ad Astra Moon Base. Yes agree one other thing. That's aged well is This is Albert Finney's last performance adding a movie and when you're talking about track suits just that's not really my look better. I actually think that's nice. Thank you I don't quite have the LANC that wishaw. Has You know you really need a lot of Lenk to make ads. We don't need to make this about like maybe not enough though you know he's GonNa live in the climate I will never know. He's five. Pipe cleaners strung together. You know Jabre Fini is just an amazing actor perfect kind of role for a guy at his age with his career career to do because he is like a father figure to this vision of old Scotland an Old England and Shakespearean movie acting and all these things that he's well known for. Yeah Yeah Okay. Is there some good ways as the best. What do you think is the winner? There Adele Song. That song is fire. I that's that's got the highest approval waiting so let's go with adults song Ways Oscar winner. What's the worst couple of? Albany's you mentioned this earlier. I don't mind the hacking as a plot point MHM The hacking is pretty stupid in this movie. I also have this down both. I think we had gotten further along in html. So I don't necessarily think it would have been in the animation that silver would be sending around would not be as kind of like like pacman. Ghost comes the IT's your. It's your empire taste like the stylized also God bless her seventy seven years old. Maybe shouldn't be the head of the security services if she's like I got this message. It says Click me so I clicked it. I mean I guess that's what Undid Hillary Clinton or whatever Biden Donald Trump. Sure and San Orgies. They already knew that. Her laptop is a point of contention. Sure when she's sitting in her lovely apartment and is like sitting there with her laptop looking looking at her James Bond file and gets hacked. She's like I am being hacked. And it says Click here for more information. About how your your getting fucked up. And she clicks it. I mean like do better. Judi densch limousine. At least she's seventy seven. She has an excuse. No she doesn't wish Sean. How are you own glaister? Oh No let me unplug the computer. Because because I've been at and he's like no one could hack 'cause I invented hacky right openly jail log into their mainframe. Yeah the problem with making making anything having to do with your computer. A part of your story is it's just inherently unsystematic. Yes there's just nothing interesting about watching somebody watch a screen and and that's not what you want from James Bond. You know you want it to be bigger than that more elevated the NAP. But it's also funny when like there's a moment where Daniel James Bond who's who's bloodstream is probably seventy five percent gin or vodka rather is like looking at the screen of like like Opaque Code. It's so weird it's like what are you as we got in. wishaw doesn't understand this subway stage. He's like Oh yeah. That's a new subway station. I go so now and no. no-one enter the code. And then it just becomes a bunch of red lines. And he's like it's a map of London but I will say in terms of that doesn't and also like Ben wishaw has to just stand in the middle of explaining how he's like laying trails in the Jackie's honesty and he's trying so hard he's a tremendous actor. But you know descript isn't there. I agree with that in terms of making the hacking cinematic. It's a very very beautiful headquarters Syrian situation and I also just go back briefly to the first Silva's scene. I guess those are servers that are like A. AH The wall. That is the most like.

"Morgan has made that his life's work in the crown and the Queen and all of that stuff and it's really layered and screwed up and fascinating meaning because it works both on that super human interpersonal. All of us are in the chapel at the end level and it works on international level. I feel like it's also the ultimate payoff of what starts in the first Craig movie which is the first time when vesper turns on him at the end of the film and you start to realize that bond can feel oh things yeah and this movie is you know it seems high Falutin but it's really purposeful like it's very much about trauma very much about what happened to you and you were a kid. Did what happened to you at your job what happened. What are the things that happened you that you can't forget you can't get away from and it's true for Silva it's true for 'em it's true for every significant character in the movie and that's just so much to put on a movie like this but it works so well because you've got so many great performers? The writing is so good. It looks so beautiful like it never feels forced and and a lot of times when you try to put a big idea. Inside of a franchise movie it feels like just like an anvil wing the thing down and in this case. It just doesn't feel that well. Yeah I mean it's part of it is the performance this is part of. It is the fact that they make the surrounding scenes. Even though it's like a Macau sex worker and you know like the finds getting shot and hearing and stuff like that like even the dark stuff happens around. Sylvan Bond. That seems to be happening almost in a different kind of atmosphere and the civil bond stuff even even down to the entrance of civil which we'll talk about. I'm sure being the sustained one take speech that he gives is so different than anything we've ever seen with when we do. I think there's always like an interesting conversation about the choices of the movies and totally. What kind of movies talking about and despite this movie being somewhat dark and and and really grappling with these ideas about I mean the stuff when when Sylvan bonder talking 'em is almost explicitly the majesty? It's almost explicitly lucidly the crown and this idea of England England took from us and what England made us into and England never lied to me and all this all these ideas and then she's fucking quoting Tennyson couldn't be any more explicit but I kind of look forward to that turn. Every time I look forward to going to Scotland every time I watch watch sky fall because you kind of get to go on that emotional journey every time. I never find a dull. Yeah I think it's because it's still bond movie too. You know you still get pail you know like these movies have to fulfil like a certain kind of not just emotional stakes but just like It just touch your brain in a way. It's like action set piece here. Steamy shower scene here showdown with your villain here. If you get all those those things going but you do them at the highest possible level. Yeah it's still works and it's still it's still pays off to go to go to sky fall at the end of the movie to see Albert Finney to have this big shoot shoot and they booby-trapped the house. It's not like it's not fun. Make all especially. Giant helicopter is a helicopter and a subway train. Crash is the along with guys fighting on a train along along with another one every single time I think I actually forget one set-piece and I'm like Oh yeah this one and but they're all really engaging which I think is pretty rare for even for on movie you know there's always one or two or you're like really you guys tried something here. It didn't totally especially the League period. Ones feel very rewritten on the fly. And you know like oh well we just decided to get rid of this storyline of these characters kind of vanish but sky fall is is like the unfree is unforgiven to me like it is the reckoning with everything that's come before it that sets it up for the future if they wanted to go that way it's a shame specter. Didn't really fulfill the promise. No but it's still. It's still kind of movie the features James Bond Spring boarding off of Komodo dragon to get out of Pitt could still James Bond movie. Never the fact that it never gives that up is just what makes it such a unique thing and they film on location or at least as much of it. Is there in Istanbul. They're running on the train. You know sometimes I just want to like see beautiful places. Part of the reason you're exciting. The Sky Falls because those shots of Scotland. An and you know in the I band of this shot down just like walking across it's unbelievable fire from afar data the helicopter flying over for that first shot when they're they're in that the sort of You Know Asian Kingdom you have to drag it and see from far away like that in the lantern all of that stuff office just so amazing of Aachen it's transporting but it also feels very like visceral because all of these sequences wind up having a very practical lived in feel to them rather than the rather than animation usually to get to the categories. Did you guys have any other top notes. Wanted to sound on sky fall mean. Dale Craig is really my my always talking about credit. We might entry into these movies in a serious way and I just think he's amazing. I'm sad that this is GonNa the last one I think it's it's been said many times. Like what he brought to the part and how he changed it and we can talk about that but It's useful to have a legitimately great actor actor do this. Yeah and that just wasn't really true. For most of the bonds they were great movie performers but not necessarily great actors. Connery is a great actor actor but even at that time in his career he wasn't he hadn't quite built up all of his chops in this way there's also a different kind of thing. Bond movies were essentially. I think there are obviously hugely popular and very important in England but I think that we were talking about they were kind of us. You just kind of like B. Movies. I kind of fun. And sometimes they made the same movie again or they made another movie with the ones with Roger Moore and went for Sean Connery. So I think it's it's like I love I love I love you only live twice. I love Dr No I mean. They're all incredibly problematic in their own ways. I really love those connery movies. Precisely because they're so bites is a lot of ways. Yeah yeah their sticks are pretty small Guy Fall Shakespearean absolutely both in terms of the actual plot and scope and the type of performance that everyone is bringing and also. I think it's worth noting with Craig. It's like they got two movies to sort of figure out how to make them with Craig and then Sky Fall. He convinces Mendis to do it. After Mendis concede him in a play and he talks Mendis into making Sky Sky Fall. And that's the one where they're like. Everybody is firing and also understand that. It's specter when Craig's lake. If I ever make another James Bond movie I'm going to kill myself now. He is make another James Bond movie so obviously dropped the bag. You know I I think that this is you really seeing the best of what this series can be in this move completely agree all right. Let's get into categories. All right this is this is a really really exciting. Most watchable seen movie but I tried to boil it down to five. Okay Okay and I tried to be a little bit more like tight about like seen versus sequence villas discover So that in mind de Shanghai skyscraper shootout yeah yes the new mix Churchill's tunnels on on training scene of like the. You know doing sit ups while Rory Kinnear is trying to explain the state of the world thinking more sequence. Yeah Okay Not Seen No. I'm not talking because I think that's like a montage essentially so I'm putting that together even even the the the you know the the tower assassination nations and and then there's the elevator getting up. Well that's the re you talking about Macau Okay so okay. So you're talking about Syria. Satcher different parts parts of China. And sorry I'm sorry. So the Shanghai skyscrapers shootout. That's the virus specifically I'm allowing the EMI six in the the new six introduction to be a scene even though that is essentially a sequence solver and bond meet for the first time. The William Tell seen the heavier burden speech all that stuff the tube chase fucking amazing And the church scene at the end so a lot of these are we can go through this and you can have. Yeah right but I think that there are and I'm not saying that these are the best scenes jeans but part of what makes me Parlor connects me to the movie is some of the smaller stuff like the first meeting with you. I'm on you quote a Mazda. You must be joking..

"I'm I'm so excited for this one. This is the first movie we've ever done on the watchable and I could not think of two people I'd rather do with more than Amanda Dobbins. Hello might be the biggest Sky Sky Fall Fan of anyone on planet earth. I am wildly excited for this and showing fantasy. If she's am I'm Gareth Mallory. Okay M. Cowboys let's talk about Sky Fall Two thousand twelve James Bond movie. It was the twenty third James Bond movie and it is widely considered to be. I don't know it's easily. The most critically acclaimed James Bond. Yes that was sort of the point. There were rumors around Director Mendis. who was coming on to do? The James Bond films up doing doing to them that he had basically engineered this to be critically acclaimed. James Bond movie that it was it was engineered to try and win Oscars it did not really rack up the awards but it racked up quite quite a bit coin at made one point one billion dollars at the box office directed by San Mendis written by Neal Purvis and Robert. Wade who are longtime bond scribes and John Logan and who wrote gladiator with an unaccredited assist by British playwright and screenwriter Jez. Butterworth who I recognise. Recklessly suspect wrote the scenes between bond and Zovut but that could be false. Worked on Spector. I like I said it made a one point one billion worldwide at the box office it was nominated for best score. Best Song Sound Sound Editing Sound Mixing and cinematography and won for best song and sound mixing and it is D- Prestige Bond. It is the movie that they when they decided. Hey We can't let Christopher for Nolan. Have all the fun making bond esque thrillers that get all this critical acclaim. Let's do it ourselves. And why don't we open it up here. I have a lot of things to say about it but Amanda Somebody who's I think you mentioned sky fall to me like you are actually the case. Study Every watchable movie Fan in this in this case because you say sky falls on last night I had to finish it. He will the problem is it's not often on so I own it and then it's on in my home because I put it on and then and my husband is like oh no not again. Do I have to hear you do the heavy burden speech. One more time I this is the best bond movie to me. And I you know the critically ill I do like Casino Royale. And then I'm trying to think in terms of the Sean connery otherwise and I think those are all kind of a blur to me growing up. It's just they were run marathons on yes. Yeah and so. It's more just kind of Sean Connery. Running around looking like Sean Sean Connery as my idea of a button and I think that's Kinda why respond to the Daniel Craig Movies and specifically Sky Fall is because it has such a different. The idea of what a movie is and who James Bond is even as it is like quite faithful and referencing everything that came before it It has ideas about the actual character. James Bond has ideas about empire has ideas about how to make an action movie. I just I think that it is both really enjoyable joy able and also a rich taxed and it also like hit so many different quadrants. Sean Got Music. It's got action. It's got romance. It's got humor. It's it has a kind of classical satisfaction level that like movies rarely hit on that regularity. Get it's interesting. You pose the same mendis bid for for prestige. Maybe this is some of my own biases bursting through like the living daylights. But I'm not a huge bond person. I've never been a huge bond person. I have probably seen somewhere between half and two thirds of the films and it never really clicked catalog. It the way you would catalog star wars or the way you CALICO horror movies where you're like this existence university. You have to understand in full for whatever reason it never really got to me that way. This movie scratches that part of of my brain that a lot of other bond movies don't think because of what you're describing which is that. It's so well made with so much clarity but it's not it doesn't abandon what makes bond good good now. It gives you a lot if he's not as important to you because it gives you a little bit of like psychological backstory. It gives you even the theme song is just a better version Asia themes on then a lot of the bond theme songs the the Casino Royale theme song is not a bad song. But it's sung by Chris Cornell and it's kind of weird yeah and the theme song in in Quantum of solace is sung by Jack White Keys. And it's actually quite strange. The Adele Song. It feels like it's one hundred years old and also incredibly modern. You know that movie. It shocked by Roger Deakins for moving. That's just candy catnip. So it's giving you all these other additional things than most of these movies never gave me. It feels like best in in class bond. Best Song Photography possibly the best performance of a bond and best villain. Yes and best supporting cats. We have to talk about the absolutely absolutely stacked cast from about him because they are doing a lot with in a Lotta ways they. This script has a lot of ideas but there are some pretty stock clients. Yeah sure yeah but then you have Judi dench in refines like making all of these. I think I can't remember if it was Adam name and actually wrote about this in river shot when it came out Adam named Red Slot for the rigor but I think he mentions that most of the people who work in MS have played. Hamlet been wishaw refines Judi dench of played hamlet before. And if you're just like this is just an incredible actor who happens to be tanner. WHO's driving the car wind up getting like race Floor but the big thing that I I wanted to talk about off the top obviously addresses a bunch of times over throughout the Pibe is harvey are as self because. I think that that takes this movie you to another level and a lot of ways I think sky fall is at least two if not three movies. You've got the first hour or so which is basically the death and resurrection of bond and the Shanghai sequence which is classic bonds just got Severino. It's got this shootout in an incredible locale. It's got intrigue espionage. Wr You're absolutely Martini. And you get a lot of the with him coming back to the to the service and having to go through the psychological and physical training he. Does you get a peek into like sort of what this movie is about. But everything changes when he goes to the abandoned of island off of Macau And especially changes when Silva Silva comes on for the first time and the movie kind of goes off in a different direction and a lot of different ways. Amanda you feel very strongly about our of our performance in this movie. Why did talk to me a little bit about Ralph Silva? I think it's an outrage. That have your rhythm has not nominated for an Oscar. That's my number two outrage of Oscar outrage of the decade behind social network not winning. This is transcendent. Yes and Weird and bizarre an entirely memorable and very funny and very very fucked up and there is a thing. Bond Villain is kind of like a catchphrase in society for reason because they are often the most host fleshed out like well developed character as they always have cockamamie plots. It's like a macguffin essentially in these movie in those movies and that's Kinda why for instance it's all the Sean connery ones bought blend together for me. Because I'm just like Oh there's a bad guy and he wants to take over the world probably Western weapons and then also you know James Bond like stops it. There is malleable allies bond themselves so many different blow fells. There's so many different. Yeah villains in addition to being a super ridiculous human with blonde no country entry hair. who gives a speech about rats? Silva's is a mirror of James Bond and a lot of ways so it's both a completely ostentatious performance and a really close intimate storyline reline. And you can't do better than that. It's a great point. I think the only reason he didn't win and wasn't nominated is because he just won three years or five years before this for no country so against yeah supporting actor that year was Alan Arkin for Argo Robert Deniro for silver linings playbook Philip Seymour Hoffman for the master. Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln and Christoph soft volts. Who won for Django unchained? He also I believe won for inglorious bastards so that was to go against that. That's it's a shame so as the next bond villain inspector birthright. So there's a there's a certain kind of actor that has drawn to this thing and I think when Mads Mikkelsen comes into Casino Royale and in Matthew Mark is in quantum solace the quality of performer starts to improve as the villain. Yeah these movies and bartending. An Oscar winner waltz being an Oscar winner. Rami Monica's now Oscar it. Yeah exactly so. Like sensing in Trenton. They've really raised the bar and the Mendis movie is it started with Casino Royale and quantum which I think are pretty pretty good Casino much more so than quantum but this movie and part of it is because of Mendez's theater background I think confers this air of prestige this air of importance. And I think when you get good writing and like we. We mentioned Jez. Butterworth but I think John Logan to is really just one of the best screen writers the twenty first century. His credits are amazing. He wrote one of my favorite movies. Ever Rango And he he has also secretly participated in the creation of a lot of movies. And he's very good at at this psychological thing that we're talking about here of creating a different kind of stakes in a very familiar format. Yeah that's what's so great about the movie. Yeah so I mean Silva's essentially actually plays Hannibal. Lecter Meets Julian Assange Beats Robert. Shaw's blonder Donnas from Russia from Russia. With love yeah and he even has the jaws esque mouthpiece going on there's some the nods Easter eggs for fans but he seems to be aggression completely onto his own obviously imbued with with like the physicality and the home eroticism and the absolutely shattered like he talks about like the cyanide burned away his inside so obviously his heart but like everything else so much of the Sova. Bond 'em triangle is the thing that like. I is what I keep responding to. I love the Shanghaied stuff. I love the trains shootout. I love the end in Glencoe with the you know the winter scape on fire but ultimately the thing that you keep going back for. Is this incredibly disturbing mommy drama with n being this maternal figure to these two men who were essentially two sides of the same coin. Yeah we've we've talked a lot about the scripts worden's but we haven't mentioned that before Sky Fall there was another script for the twenty third movie that was written by Peter. Morgan and it that that script was too dark apparently and was thrown away. Although it did have I believe the basic blueprint of the M character As as a standard for England and empire doing some possibly questionable things and then having I believe it was at descriptors like she had an actual actual son who then Kinda rose up against her and there are we can get to this half ass Internet research but there's a lot of online scholarship suggesting that that is the case that that Silva's sort of her adopted adopted son I mean they're certainly shades of it anyway and that basic theme and so it's both the the Mommy and the the sons drama there is that empire empire England aspect of it which you know Peter..

"Also crappy. You've got a little July one right thanks. That's really funny. So that make you like more more so much I was just like wow I wanna be a part of this. He because he was just he was there to experience cinema. And Yeah people and was so excited that you can have assigned seats and really confidently confidently rock in that crap. Incredible Ankle. So I'm gonna I kind of talented Mister Ripley book totally. Has He ever not had a confident day in his life. It's like probably not may not that's great. It's just like how he lives his life. See Mary to Sienna Miller. Gi well he would. They never got married okay. They were dating the the scandal. Yeah and I think he has like six kids now like forty four women. Oh Jeez recently remarried. Yeah Yeah and they had like a tasteful age appropriate wedding that I read about in the daily problems age both I think yeah. She's younger though. Essentially Twenty six. I think she can't why what is going on. I did a podcast great. You'd lie but it's not it's not on here is I. Don't think he's great. I just think he's extremely high. That's fair can I say one thing about the casting before go which is just the fact that Nancy Meyers was just like I will write a script for Cameron Diaz Kate Winslet and Jack Black and we'll get them them and I don't even have to worry about not getting them is like that says a lot about her and her power and her authority and like not many directors at all. Get to do that. Let it alone. Women Directors so shadow Nancy Meyers. That's what I have to say. or She's really good at controlling the narrative around movie. Either way either way good job. Yeah 'cause I was was like she really want anyone else answer this question otherwise which I thought was kind of interesting too. Because she didn't say she wrote for Jack Black and jude law which wouldn't let any other names into the conversation. I thought it was pretty fascinating too. All right we're going to move on to the Dion waiters award but first let's talk about the sponsors..

"Yeah and I guess that was her idea to jump on the bed but it was. That scene was supposed to end in the bathroom which they apparently built. Oh God and then they never. And that's got to be a bummer. Right Oh my God. The budget was eighty five million dollars. Which is insane to make worldwide two hundred million okay so back pretty? Well not like gangbusters but I did pretty well for Tom and I just felt like General Cameron Diaz is like the spaces cases in her home. Just didn't really feel remarkable. The England houses so much more memorable staircase. Yeah it's cute calming down the little staircase and you think you're gonNA hit your head like I just like those cozy little places and then there's like a fire little mini fireplace. Yeah it's very true. We are also three people living in La something cozy which is very true. I also thought it was funding. Has she was cameras like wear her like hat and mittens inside. I feel like that is also very. La Things sounds like no places actually very well Heated so you're always cold in. She probably just like us to do that at night and it was. It was pretty funny. In general I think aged twelve. Oh what can I just nominate one metro bomb in the middle of a Jack. Black as romantic address is just not that does not in two thousand in nineteen. That's a great. That's a great like he was having a moment. Maybe I know like school of rock was a thing. Yeah you know that. He was a comedian he was popular. It makes sense. It's like a softer like jude law. And you've got Jack Black. Got Something for everybody but I know in two thousand nineteen. I don't know I don't know what's what's going on. Well this is a great transition into casting. What if okay not a lot of casting? What after this movie because Nancy Meyers insists that she wrote it with Kate? winslet and Cameron Diaz in mind in very early on Jack Black and here's what she had to say about it. I thought he was someone. I'd like to write a poem apart for and I'm aware he's not Clark Gable. He's not tall dark and handsome but he's adorable. He's lovable. It's my way of saying this is the right kind of guy. This is what most guys look like if they're lucky. He sowed horrible and why not everybody has a heart and serves fall in love and he she. You got a great girl so I fixed mode Kate winslet. I think all of that is true. Yeah except UAE or you making him sing weird scores blocked by an error goofy faces. Yeah just the horn off. I liked. This movie is about movies like I'm a nerd. I think that's cool or whatever but when he's just like wandering wandering around singing random scores from like driving miss daisy like no thank you know live eating there is there is the every man and then there is just lower extent. I probably coming off of tenacious. D In School of rock. Maybe maybe a little bit different. I feel yes persona at the time was just a guy who sings in movies and like has the worst thing that's ever been said the little overacting we land like he he's going he's kind of annoying like I. I'd be friends with him. I just wouldn't ever want to kiss him. I wouldn't I just don't see that connect with one point. Mr Watch where. I was rooting for Kate. winslet together with Arthur. Because I'm just like this is an interesting person who's lived a life and who respects you. And who gets you a corsage Josh. And who isn't like all other thing about this character is that he's in like thinks he's in a relationship with some dumb actors for the whole time. Yeah and he only realizes this is the kate. Winslet is the person for him like with five minutes to go in the movie beyond what Kate winslet. Anyone deserves. True it's better than that. It is true although although I like that actress she was in forty days and four. Nine saatsmen yeah. No disrespect to her ashes. Playing apart. Sure I've said my piece I agree. I agree with you but I think that's the point. That's that's how she wanted it. All right. Does it might not track but I think that was the intention. Okay I mean right now. I think that that's true. So you know. That's that's that's where the movie Kinda hits hits. The Wall I the Cameron Diaz Movies Way Out in the Kate winslet movie. But you don't feel that Kate winslet I like it makes you like her more have already invested in her and now she liked. You can tell that she has a thing for Jack in the sometimes when a very pretty free beautiful girl. That's smart and funny lakes the guy that Kinda seems like he has no business dating her. I'd like them. Were yeah that yeah yeah a little four. It's four love it's a share. I think that's really true and let me be clear that my objection to Jack Black is not in any way Jack Black looks like or even that you would date a funny guy but this character is really annoying ink and they don't have any cash. They seem like nice friends. Yeah they seem like people like like she has made some friends in L. A.. And that's nice character who i. I actually think that is very good in the got a great she makes acting within. It's basically like this character is spoke to settle for the friend. She's more totally. That's that's that's my objection with ice. I support it. Okay it could have recast him. Yeah but I had the whole idea of who I thought could. Let's go. I thought maybe Matt Dillon Because he had just this come. I think wasn't deal in question. I he's he's very good looking. Yeah and he was slightly older at the stager Ren he's funny. It was funny in something about. Mary was a jerk though. I know but I feel like it's his chance to not be a jerk. Lazy Rom Com beautiful girls. Yeah great movie right. He could have been that character a little bit but with. I don't know the only thing I might not have bought it and was him playing piano as he doesn't seem to call to me. I think Jason Segel would be perfect. Remake Oh oh also another guy. That's probably not good enough. Good looking enough I maybe under him. Yes I remember saw spot for Jason Segel and also things like dramatic. I feel actually would have been a really good knocked up. I liked that he was knocked up and forgetting right. Sarah Marshall Okay. That's what it was like that character would totally fit. Yeah yeah I I don't know I just I love Jason Segel personal pet PET INTERESTS Like I said there's not a lot of cats this like every every interview is like insisting that she had it with those two in mind uh-huh the two event in that July that then she like wanted to write a character for someone like Jack Black and jude law like she said they had like chase up change some things for him. And the way that both Cameron Diaz and Nancy Meyers talk about Jude Law. Taking on this role is just sort of like the subtext is can jude law. Play a good guy. I like a lot of questions about can. He be appealing and endearing. We're just we're just pretty fighting and I will also say I realize jude law is does not seem like a particularly wonderful human to me. Don't have don't have a lot to base except for The tabloid stories but his various relationships I once saw him at the high with Arc. Light just how rakishly leaning over the counter. You're having a very engaged enthusiastic. Conversation with the staff of the ARC. Light about how the assigned seating work now angry or no..

Om Amanda Dobbins is here we're doing a reward now you and Jeffrey Tambor Halloween scenes good hours notice in your authorize Angeles Jack There is nothing I can do about it I convinced a man today spend eleven million dollars of my ideas I gotta go besides there's going to be Halloween I know there will be other Halloween thinking about the Selena I mean these kids and a couple of years grossly I really don't seem to have upgraded Jack I mean I just like the I like Halloween scenes I realized like in movies right and it's the only time they kinda confront hey kinda lose in the family hair because we'll get into what stage wears she just stops being a mom for like an hour that's just completely interesting thing going on with the kids anyway perform I will like I said I found it kind of refreshing just from the I'm not a mother but I have a lot of friends who are in I consume a lot of content like aimed at thirty year old thirty seven year old women which is just about just a constant flow of anxiety about how your failing because you're not being everything to everyone and and it really impressive a real bummer I was like oh I kind of like that she doesn't care maybe fewer people should care I like that her attitude I also like that I'd been waiting for her to kind of be like it's for him to say hey three kids just had to come up at some point great I like that he was dressed up like a prisoner and actually thought he was pretty good in that scene I not sold on her which we'll get to later then the the ending where just Textbook Goofy eighties ending where and Gillians in his room with a drink and he comes out of the shower then Teri Garr is there did they bring that film it's a real okay guys we have run literally four hours to finish this whole movie it's abrupt would that's I also had that what what was the most reliable listen for me it's the utilities Keaton versus like the washing machine yeah and the vacuum I I realized that the ironing grilled cheese on ironing board came from this movie as well which is something that I feel has showed up in other movies and is definitely a trope but have you have you done it no I've never done it but only because I don't have an iron 'cause that's helpful because I'm dating Michael Keaton with the flannel shirts so I don't have you done the iron groceries no so here's the thing on the approaches to go it's the best way to make a grilled cheese the problem is it ruins the iron so it's almost like you need the iron to just be roaches iron but who would do that 'cause it's going to get butter and cheese in the little holes and then you're ironing a shirt and it's getting grilled cheese stuff on it right but you have to assume that at this point in time a specific grilled cheese dedicated iron is cheaper than like a Panini grill or whatever there the all in order to make a girl cheese to go ahead that's what I'm saying the the lesson from this as they should make a real as it's really wonderful way to have a grilled cheese.

that it's a man at home or just kind of like well you got to stay at home it's more like he's a moron at home yeah exactly and there are the mean judgy MOMS which there is still are in two thousand eighteen I if you've ever been on a mommy board which I have like vicariously nightmare situation but it's it's just he's outmatched and they don't spent a ton of time being like can you believe that a man would stay at home no not at all how did them for that I also liked another what saves the best for me is he makes friends with some of their their MOMS are actually real friends are playing poker they take him to a male strip joint at one point the Group of friends I thought Jillian was really good in this movie I would say to she was in a show called it's a living this is back in the day when I watched every single sitcom that was on because we only had like four channels it was a show about a bunch I think it was a bunch of waitresses at a club trying to make it they all had dreams but it was the city mm-hmm and she was like the breakout star of it she and I think she had a dance background so she was like famous than you know like nobody Craig's age would probably know who that is but she the I have a moment and she's good in this she's got the right level of you know she's the the horny divorce friend WHO's checking out Michael Keaton movie but she's just something likeable about this in on the joke yeah yeah you seem less like like the United I heard that character me I can't defend the character before but I don't know if I needed like that love but we'll talk about it she's good yeah Keaton Watching soap operas great style is both Oh what's the best and the worst I watched general hospital during this era this is what was on during the day they have the Internet yeah we had ten channels like all right what's your soap opera now I mean I remember staying home from sick and you just want to make sure you watch prices right because otherwise it was oprah's game shows and soap operas so it starts at he makes fun of it and then within five minutes he's yelling at somebody 'cause another words as your best it's always like rocky training music montages we yeah I was Gonna say the pop culture references in this have aged really well it's rocky jaws and they do like chariots of fire during the during the race that you were talking about and normally when you do really timely pop culture references in a movie or a TV show or a book thirty years later it's like what what are you talking about teats it instantly Wayne's world is a great example of that they do especially Wayne's world two yeah it's a lot of very specific culture steph then somebody like Craig now I don't get that but they picked really well all time stuff yeah I kind of like the tuna commercial the tuna with a heart barry eighties it was smart it's not that's one of the things I have done like the idea that brands have to have a heart yes it's like very very of the moment every single brand on twitter as like here's what we can do for you to make you feel better about yourself and that they have that in the committee she'll instantly this was a very eighties movie TV theme of how do we connect to the public oh by being human beings like they are and it just felt very nineteen eighty-three to me but it's aged nicely because they brands are thinking about this style you can see it every day on twitter the ridiculous ending aged here's what's age the best about it and for whatever is in the eighties it was like okay we've set out we had to out how to do a better ending nominees all the always tack on four more scenes and you're like I get it I get it let's go so I agree with you there brevity the like okay we've tied stop let's go it's they just wouldn't do it this way now but I kinda missed the era of half we said everything we say let's get out of here yeah because night shift to night shift ends book because I really wanted to watch I'm GONNA text you like once every two days so you watch it it ends abruptly but it's another one where it's like yeah she probably have ended it there and then said I'm glad you got out what's age the best for you we have two more okay go this is a controversial and I'd love your take on it as a person actually knows has experience with this parenting seems pretty good to me in this yeah this there's no helicopter freaking out stuff they kind of treat the kids Pantley they can make their own lunch he has that neigh speech about you gotta give up your blanket to give it up none of them cry none of them are knowing touching each other you're right it's it's a very nice clean family I thought that that was inspiring also this movie just Kinda accepts on face value that state home with the kids it's like a fulltime job and very hard work.

Dissecting the 2019 Version of 'The Lion King'

"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you.
