Are Movie Theaters Screwed?

"I'm Sean. Fantasy and Amanda Events, and this is the big picture. A conversation show about movies. There is a lot of news about movies in the world right now, but not so many movies, it is officially August which means three things one, it is hot as hell outside. To its Amandus, birthday happy, birthday Amanda. Thank you shot three a very bad time for movies and this year. Of course, it's unusually bad. Thanks to covid nineteen. So man, we have a lot to talk about today's episode a lot about the state of the movie business and more specifically about where you didn't spend your birthday, which is in a movie theater. Because movie theaters are not open and it's sort of feels like movie theaters are screwed. We're going to talk a little bit about some of the decisions that Mc made last week and the ramifications of that, and maybe some of the financial decisions that AMC made earlier today, and what that means for the future of movies. It's a very complicated time. Can you help us understand just a little bit of what transpired last week between? AMC and Universal Studios. Yes. So we got the ultimate resolution of the great trolls world tour fight of twenty twenty, which is that after much public negotiating and wild statements made on both sides, AMC theaters and universal came to an agreement and universal movies. Now will be shown in AMC theaters with a new theatrical window of seventeen days, which is notably shorter than the previous window that most that all studios and movies operated under in the United States. That window used to be in the neighborhood of between two and three months, and that meant films has a plan theaters for nearly a quarter of the year and sometimes more than that before you could find them at home and that's changing I sort of I. You know it's clearly changing for the purposes of universal movies. No other studio has come to this agreement and universal. Universal has only come to this agreement with one theater chain. Am See. So this is not a cataclysmic event, but it certainly seems presidential. It certainly seems as if it's something that is going to send shockwaves throughout the industry for the future. You know. Obviously, we spent so much time on this show talking about the slow atrophying of the theatrical experience. This feels as significant. A story has happened in that respect I was just doing some doing some Napkin math last night about box office receipts, and so over the past ten years, the annual domestic box office has averaged about eleven eleven, billion dollars in the United, states, and right now, it sits at about one point, eight, billion dollars with just about two plus months of true box office. So. These are really desperate times for movie theaters and so am see I. I'm trying to understand what specifically is motivating AMC's whiplash decision making because as you said, Adam Erin who is the CEO of AMC had some very strong words for universal's decision about trolls world tour about four or five months ago, and now they've made nice and in fact it it sort of feels like AMC took a hit here in this negotiation, what do you think is animating their their decision making deep financial desperation just this absolute total. What else can we do to keep the lights on? which I am not a do not have an MBA. Okay, and I'm not an economist, but there has a lot has been written. You know in deadline and in the Wall Street, Journal and the trades about the extremely precarious financial situation of AMC in particular, and obviously all of this is heightened by the fact that movie theaters have not been open for months now and they don't have a business model because of covid nineteen but I think you know covid nineteen has really exacerbated. What was. A A tricky situation for all movie theaters. But especially, it seems AMC just because of how it's business it structured and you mentioned today there assume news about AMC's restructuring in order to. Reallocate some of its debt, but it just all seems under the guise of we have to keep the lights on because we do not have cash on hand and movie theaters aren't open and we don't know when they're going to be able to be open most places, and if we don't have cash coming in, then our business no longer exists. So AMC it even it seems within the realm of the theater chains who are all obviously impacted by covid nineteen seems to be really motivated to figure out any income stream that it can right

That's. That's at least my reading I. Don't know what you think. No I. think that's exactly right and I think it's notable that in this deal with universal in addition to clearing new cash flow from that debt restructuring the you mentioned there, the AMC is going to get money from universal when it takes its films to peavy od after that seventeen day window, and that's that's a highly unusual arrangement for streaming revenue to filter back into a theatrical a theatrical. I don't what, what would you call it? A tithing basket I'm not sure what does that. What does that represent to Hansie's business I? Don't I'm not sure I understand

Amanda Bynes Says Seeing Paparazzi Photos of Herself Is ''Terrifying''

"Okay guys. I don't know if you've seen this. Amanda bines is calling out the Paparazzi saying that editing photos to make her look bad. She posted a video on instagram. Saying it's been a terrifying experience to see pictures of herself online. What are you guys? Think so the Paparazzi. Actually do this. Do you think a Photoshop Photoshop. Pictures to make people look bad. Job is to sell photographs. They're not they don't have. They want to sell them as quickly as possible. They're not editing them to make them look bad or worse. Do you think that they were more like the? She thinks that she has double Chins when she sees her proxy pictures of herself or that. She just doesn't look like she thinks she looks control of that. Yeah well what happens whenever somebody is going through something like this? They know that a website or blog or even publication wants to sell that narrative sue Paparazzi. And you a picture of Manda Binds Britney Spears looking the bomb when everybody's been reporting that they've gone through something. Paparazzi know that they're not going to sell that photo right but you don't actually think that this is the case. I think that's what she looks like. Maybe she looks like but I don't think they're going in editing her photos to make her look worse. Look I've seen it happen before and just lawyers have been doing this for years where they manipulate a photo to sell a story. If you look at what Harvey Weinstein looks like whenever they want to sell the story that he looks like a monster they take this strong photo of him. They turn the shadows up. They turned the brightness down and they make him look like a monster and then what happens is his team. His lawyers his publicist get the photos out of of him looking feeble they turn the brightness up they make him look older age in the process. Look at that. Those are two different photos of the same man. The one of the love is to make him look like a monster in the one of the rights to make him look evil. It's how people have played the right. He's standing in the sunshine left is he's not at all. Do you think okay but going back to Amanda. Do you think they're editing? Amandas photos to make her look worse. View Vein they are not. I didn't think they are either. I'm his thing I we all know. What site when somebody when you're walking with your friends. Your friends are taken pitches on that iphone and you'll taking pictures too and the pictures you're taking off north south of the ones that you like. You always prefer one hundred percent different angles different camera. It just changes thing when you're buying photos when you worked for a magazine publication. They were not now. But you don't think I'm saying you don't think that the photographer knew what you were looking for. They knew that Britney was in distress and they weren't taking those photos and manipulating angles and distressed. And and they were capturing those Amandus so not been into she's had her own struggles alleyways doesn't mean and that means that's an angle that's capturing some things that's being a good Paparazzi capturing somebody in their worst moment which horrific thing right how. They're not getting a photo of Amanda Looking Fabulous and then going home and then not double not thank you not doing she made. He just doesn't realize that she they are getting a double chin. Either GIVE THEY WANNA sell by the way okay. Let me ask you this question. If the Paparazzi won't add a chin. Why would they make girls Skinnier to sell stories that they were more interested than they were to? Not necessarily so you think the Paparazzi are like. Hey this richie. They did it to for years. They made look way skinnier than what she was. They have been doing this forever. Lindsay's low hands arm. They always do it. I think Photoshop the hit photoshop before they even get to a publication. If I'm a Paparazzi and I know that there are seventeen people trying to sell the same photo. I'm GonNa give you the one that you had to do less work

2020 Golden Globes Predictions

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up

What are animals saying to each other?

"Is my producer amandus dog truffles as you can hear. She's whining about something. Okay well now. She's barking about something but what really is she saying it just kind of wonder like will i ever really know we ever learn her language and just have a full-on barker conversation. We'll ever know if she's like oh. My god help i've trapped at dogs or if jeff truffles <unk> screaming for the sake of screaming. I know there have been a whole bunch of different times that humans have been able to teach animals communicate with us like there's that arena tang tilda the researchers taught how to mimic sounds like this ooh and then there was koko the gorilla who actually learned sign language. She even talk to robin williams. I recently had a mind altering experience. Communicating with a guerilla name is coco. Oh and then there was alex the parrot who did a step up from the both them and could actually speak english like full-on language here guys how many how that's right water hit. He had a vocabulary of over one hundred words and was the first and only non human animal to have ever asked a question. What this shows us is that he really understands what those questions mean but you know that's not really the same as us learning their languages. You know they're learning ours they do. They even have language that we could speak to them in and if they do would we be able to learn it. Can we ever really know what animals are saying to each other our walk.

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc

"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

"Question as whatever they come out of conference with that there are people in the house who will who will not want to spend that much there were whatever that number is on defence there are a lot of governors who wanna spend more there will be republicans who want more amandus mandatory spending cuts things like snap program now i suspect the urged to get tax reform done is strong enough among republicans they'll be able to the twister not farms but it's it's by no means certain and looking forward then to the tax reform issue itself there's a lot of discussion about how much deficit we're willing to tolerate for the tax package what's your best estimate at war what they can get through as a pregnant republicans so they can agree on in terms of death well you know the the senate tax plan is estimated would result in one one and a half trillion dollars worth of additional debt over the 10year period the house not as much but the house budget as house plan makes an awfully strange assumptions i think so i think getting a are going to have trouble with republican senator corker said indicator dr implied that that one and a half trillion dollars would not be acceptable to him and there are a lot of people in the house side who would balk at that kind of addition to the dead as well here again a lot of it has to do with the assumption may republicans want to assume that there's going to be substantial economic growth because of his tax cuts cut most economists say that you can't really expect much goldman sachs says maybe of two point two percent growth which wouldn't come close to paying for them so it's pretty clear there's going to be in addition to the dead if we pass these anything to resembles what we heard about last week and again there are a lot of republicans are not going to be happy with that so find a congressman strikes me that we've been telling the democrats this whole time a now i'm sorry republicans zoltan you are a democrat what is your role in this process sir i mean you just said back in observing how can you get involved.
