"Her in her mother or something to let us know that. This isn't a joke because you kind of wonder throughout the entire movie because you know one half you seen tommy trying to ask carry out to the prom. Yeah and on the other. You see billy who is travolta prisoner idiot friends slaughtering pig to get pig blood dump on carey in the middle of the trump. And then you see. Pj souls in her boyfriend faking all of the ballots and making sure. Carrie and tommy win. Yeah so so you have those two things in like you saw them both at the beginning giving carry a hard time and taunting her and then they're going opposite directions. But i don't think nothing of the amy irving motivation. I think i think it kind of works for one reason because the scene later where. Amy irving sue spots chris and her boyfriend underneath. That's when underneath a stage but that's my point is because it works to leave her ambiguous because that's why when you see betty buckley's character rush in and try to keep su who this collins assumes that sue is up to something because he's not sure of her motivations exactly so therefore so she doesn't know that sue is trying to warn people of what christian and her boyfriend are doing exactly. So what happens is carey's fine. She gets cleaned up. They go back to class. He's an english class where the teacher is reading a poem. It's written by turney. Who is right. And even though tommy admits to later that he didn't even write the poem course not so. It's too good. it's too right. So you know the the the teachers asking for criticism and kerry just sort of. It's beautiful and everybody makes fun of kerry including the by the teacher. Yeah the teachers. Everybody in this town can sucks put well apparently for except for his collins. Collins is not that great.

"I love that. Nancy allen and piper. Laurie are all like what a wacky comedy were in. Meanwhile sec- spacex is like saint. Maude in her dressing room walking around with nails in her shoes and setting herself on firewall screaming. Bible real. that's so fucked up to me that they didn't realize that this was a horror movie. I'm sorry i know because clearly when you're watching it it's a horror movie. Isn't that a black comedy. Nancy allen especially given the climax of the movie like. Oh that's funny. Let's let's do bad shit to the poor sad girl like what the anyway in piper. Laurie is absolutely terrifying. As the mother fit yeah her performances utterly fantastic which makes it even funnier that she thought it was funny. This is blowing my mind. This episode is blowing my mind adding to her mother's psychotic character is the fact that none of the bible passages in the film are real which is also awesome to me. For example she quotes genesis. Chapter three to say that sexuality is evil. That chapter is actually the story of adam and eve eating the forbidden fruit. The bible doesn't say anything. The mother says it does which is about metaphor for religion and cheddar all. Sorry i didn't say that in two thousand ten interview with the av club. Pj sole said that steven spielberg often came to the set at brand of palmas invitation. Because diploma told him that there were a lot of cute girls down here sole said that spielberg asked out. Most of the women on the set souls included and amy irving was the only one who accepted irving and spielberg were married from one thousand. Nine hundred five to nineteen eighty nine and had one son together. interesting You got there spielberg. Finally we had to end our carry trivia with the story. george. Lucas and brenda palma held a joint audition for kerry and star wars episode for a new hope. There is a long standing. Rumor that originally sec- space sack was cast as princess leia and carrie fisher as well kerry but when fischer refused to appear in nude scenes and spacex was willing to do them. They switched parts. However fisher refuted the story and a premier magazine article called. The force wasn't with them about actors who auditioned unsuccessfully for star wars episode for a new hope that article quoted fisher is saying not only do i love being nude. I would've been nude then but anyway. It's total bullshit meaning that fischer refused to play kerry. That's hilarious god. We love you. Carrie fisher we miss you so much. Not only do i love being nude. That should be a t shirt dude. Totally well sharing what What coming of age favorite of ours. Are you going to talk about next. Some girls watched you know they read the baby sitters club books and they watched. I don't know what kids watched punky brewster when we were in. I don't know but we want to talk. You know. I did too but we watched this. Probably more probably. Yeah i was super excited to look up trivia for this next movie because it's one of my all time babes and i didn't actually know any of the behind the scene stories from the film but we're talking about some loss boys trivia..

"So it'll be that floppy stuff too. Yeah. So tell us what what what jumped out at you for the independent spirit awards jumped out at me. First of all was that the spirit awards realized that women made movies is great. I mean, we keep talking about can you ever? Forgive me. That's Marielle Heller. We should mention the director. She was not nominated the Oscars, but her films, certainly have many things and she's one of the best filmmakers working right now. And for best director. I'll just say, okay. So three of the five directors nominated the spirit awards are women. Debra Granik for leave. No trace that was one of my favorite films tamra Jenkins for private life and Lynne Ramsay for. You're never really here. And it was just really nice. They're nine alongside Barry Jenkins for if Beale street could talk and Paul Schrader for first reformed and other my favorite films the year. So I just I think overall just a much stronger assemblage, I don't personally for me. And you were saying these Academy Awards are cabbie ward weekend. So it's on the twenty third. Saturday right before the Sunday. So it's February twenty six so you can have your your your your checklist. And then you also have your prepare for the elections and see what who you're gonna vote for. I know it's boom, boom, boom spirit awards Oscars elections. Yes. I mean about and best feature my favorite film. The eighth grade. That's up for best feature along with first reformed. If Beale street could talk I keep forgetting that doesn't have a best picture nomination. The Oscars about a dozen leave. No trace, and you're never really here. Yeah. So I mean, there's a lot of really good. And then this film called the tail this people keep not seeing this as a film, but it was it premiered at Sundance, but HBO is really the one that's been distributing it. So you can see on there. But it's by Jennifer, FOX incredible movie. Laura Dern the star of it. You should check this out. Laura Dern, it's incredible. And it's the filmmakers going back to this relationship. She had as young girl this much older, man. And she starts realize my gosh, this guy took advantage of me. And I wasn't aware of it until I was in my middle age like looking back on things, and it just shows how you know, the the the human mind the way we try to contextualized trauma. It's a very complex thing. Sometimes it'll take decades fairly start dealing with it. But it's a filmmaker is about her life. She's actually grappling with it an inviting you to be part of the journey, and it's incredible detail. Tale is forced me to watch the tape. Laura Dern love can't miss. Let me let me interrupt this conversation to welcome to the conversation. One of our favorite listeners. It's trucker ridge. Hey, Patty, how you guys doing tonight? Very well. How's it where you are? I take off my start out by thirty nine. West of Chicago there. It was sloppy snow covered with real big wet snowflakes sawed eighty eight. Fifty five or doesn't get in by a world. Eric. Uh? Split. It just turned into rain, and it's just been posted speed limit ever since I'm over by sixty five and Indiana and also. Sean about thirty six degrees and a Hammam so badly. Are you worried going cold? It'll be a nice day. I was gonna say if it gets colder, then you have to worry about that ice, those icy roads and black is in particular. I'm guessing for you allow the problems that are the hesitant drivers. Is that continue to be is that one of the issues you have? What was that? I missed that. I'm hesitant drivers. You know, the folks who kinda like, oh, maybe realize they're overestimating their abilities to handle the weather, and then make choices that might put you in danger. I always leave a little bit of actual mom like my wife says I drive like a grandpa. Got enough miles under my belt. I haven't well. I'm not gonna say the word. I haven't had an accident. Over thirty five years, and that one wasn't my fault. So that at all, I just take my time. Best direct record. Yeah. I got juice aims you'll never fly faster than your guardian angel can fly. Get their billion times by going. Folderols? It takes is one time try to get there too fast. So at all. A rich. I have an announcement to make that I found out earlier today. I don't know that if you if you are on social media at all, but Dr dingman is going to be in the area on on Valentine's Day. I don't know if that's something you'll be able to do, but he's going to be at the comedy shrine in Aurora on Valentine's Day, and I'll be appearing with him that night. Support that a weekday or Thursday. I'm sorry. It's a Thursday. I know. I'll tell you. I'll try and get some video of that as well concern that he'll have. All right. And. Hi. Yep. Story with Dr digman. That's right. And he'll be now I booked him today since he's doing his appearance. He asked to be booked on show for next Wednesday for sure so he's in the books. I can I can take a photo and show you that. I wrote them down. Oh, I totally trust. You. You're my co driver. So I gotta trust you. I will. I appreciate that. I I'll try I'll tell you do my best, sir. Okay. You take care. And if you're worried about you, you've always asked about like Bassim talks when the war, spray and stuff. Yeah. In the wintertime, you'll want it to be spraying if they're spray. That means there's noise, right? That's true. It's mushy that makes sense. Look, look, shiny. And there's no little water coming up for tires from cars or trucks around you. Then that might be ice. So be careful. Well, thank you so much. I'm going to try to keep it on the road and keep listening to you. Appreciate that. We will talk to you later took rich. We were talking earlier about Sam Elliott and the three one two says as a huge Sam Elliott fan. I just wanted to weigh in Patty that you must must watch last year's movie hero starring Sam. He also an has an interesting movie coming out in a couple of weeks called the man who killed Hitler. And then killed Big Ben the big foot, wait a minute way. Big like like the Batman th that's all one title. That's the whole title. So it could just be a big gimmick. But I mean, how can you resist a film of that title in San Elliott starring I don't think you should know. I don't think it's I don't think humanly possible Tom Izzo. You're familiar with this. I'm just so in on this like, that's that's put all your chips on the man who killed Hitler. And then the big foot big foot. Big of that before we go to the break. I do want to say we haven't had a chance to to revisit this conversation. Because Elliott Toronto has not joined us now Elliott Serrano got no argument with sue the t Rex from the museum of the field museum. Oh, yeah. No argument with the t t Rex because sue contends that Indiana Jones was not a good archaeologist that he was just a grave robber and didn't kill Hitler. When he had a chance. Interesting. So even thought of it that way, there's a whole thread between Elliot and see the t Rex and actually then he came on the air. And and she did not engage. I don't know if the. Perhaps just the the the Twitter is the her place of of communication, but Indiana Jones. He's just Marvin museum curator. That's this blog. Museum. That's it. That's a good point. Yeah. He's very good at avoiding poisonous darts and rolling boulders. I guess absolutely. And he should have stayed with Karen Allen from the first my half degree with them. I have been a recurring character and all the movie as a kid who up as brunette and boys always like the blondes when the temple of doom came, and I'm like, really, I know I was so bummed because it will cause Karen Allen was kind of a tomboy too. I know she's so passing. Yeah. So poor Kate Capshaw sale that horrible role but Spielberg Lecter well enough to marry her. They're still together. So the happy ending offscreen, Amy Irving the brunette. I love Amy K before we again. Okay. One more thing. Because now have you ever seen the movie crossing Delancey? Now, this is I think you I want I wonder if you so my husband when when we started dating there were like movies that I was required to watch kind of every couple has. Yeah. I don't know. I didn't have any for him. I would have to ask him. If I if there are any that I made him watch. But crossing Delancey was one of them. It is it's a really sweet movie. It's Paul and Amy Irving. Oh, yeah. And Amy Irving say her mother plays like, I'm Jewish matchmaker. So it's it's it's a sweet little movie you have to see thirteen conversations about one thing. Okay. Starring Amy Irving and Alan Arkin to hear people fence around my favorite movies. All right done. Yes. Okay. Then here's another one. Yes. Also, my husband apparently big Paul Rieger fan. Which is local hero with Burt. Lancaster? Oh, yes. I think I might have seen this one by the way, Paul by the way, speaking. Because I think it takes place in either Wales or Scotland Tom programming note for tomorrow night. I probably need to let engineering know this. I think we're gonna have a Scottish pipe band. Studio O tuning in. But we don't need the performance base. But we probably need to set up a couple of microphones for them. Right. Yes. Okay. So let's let's Email somebody 'cause I just found out today. We're gonna have some folks in talk about Robert burns, and how we can raise a toast Rabbie burns. So we've got the piping Bantu beds. Incredible. Let's take a break here. And and we will round out the evening with a I'm trying to say, Tom. What do you think? Do you want to do? Tell me something good or what we meant to get to some of these stories. I feel like tonight's a T V what I meant to get to. Yeah. We'll talk some of these stories stories.

"Hello and welcome. He's Gary McNamara. I'm Eric Harley as we move into a Thursday Gerry. How are you not banning you, and I did some calculating here in our pre show meeting figured out? Jeff Bezos, divorce settlement. His ex wife should be able to finance one thousand wall. Yes, we have determined here. At the Red Eye Radio math headquarters, let's go to the math desk now. And we believe calculating based on what the reported wealth of Jeff Bezos is and what his wife of twenty five years will likely get in a divorce. She will be able to buy the wall. And also still get your deliveries within two days. Eventually she'll be able to deliver the wall in two days for free. You know, what's interesting is the talk of of whether of how the divorce will be structured because she could end up. It's quite possible. With the being the biggest shareholder of Amazon. Now Jones does is at sixteen percent of the shares. I believe and this happened with Steve Wynn when he divorced his wife back in two thousand ten she ended up getting the majority or more shares than than he did. So she had a bigger seat at the table. So the the real estate guy who on the dodgers, I'm blanking on his name. But his divorced basically forced the family to sell the dodgers. So that could be a big big deal. Remember when Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg got divorced two years. And at the time, it was the biggest settlement, and that it was like it was like one hundred million bucks. Unwritten million you live in a totally different neighborhood than Jeff Bezos. Now, what what would it be if they split it, isn't that seventy eighty billion base? So the wealth calculation is fluctuating. Let's like right because the shares go up and down, right, although Amazon, you know, was still there. Investors are still saying you should still by Amazon it's still growing, but it's anywhere between estimates today anywhere between one hundred thirty five to one hundred fifty billion. It was reported last year. Sixty billion worth a trillion. Sixteen percent. They right. First trillion dollars, right, right? And so that's you know, it would make sense that then she would get eighty billion. She would get roughly half of that wealth, depending there there could be a pre-nup in place, but keep in mind that was twenty five years ago when they got married. You know, he did not have the the wealthy has today. But who knows maybe they did it just to do it? Maybe maybe it was trendy to do prenups. So no one knows about the. The details of it just the rumors surrounding the National Enquirer story that's been circulating that he he was having an affair with the wife of a Hollywood agent. And so and he sat in his Bezos said in his tweet that they'd been separated for some time. Good luck to both of them. Just make sure my packages there in two days. Well, here here we go coming up here. Trump apparently walked out of the meeting butts, not angry vice president Pence out and say, no he didn't storm out. He walked out. Yeah. He's the one that left, but he came into the meeting handing out candy to people. So we'll get to that New York Times story makes the point that we've been making I don't know for a long time new polling on border security. That's really interesting new report out Camila Harris to announce the run for president this month. Iraqi leaders urge the United States to keep a troop presence in their country. Mhm? Well, we know what has happened. I mean, the fall of Mosul when it happened it lasted ISIS had control for thirty three months. You were the one that pointed out when. When when Iraq gained remember that weekend. Something else was going on in the news and Iraq gained control of Mosul over a weekend. And there again there was there was big news somewhere else. And that was that was a kind of on the back burner, but it was a huge story. And you you pointed that out, and we talked about it when they regained control over Mosul. But they know they know full, well what can happen? Well, I mean, this is the thing where you will have an primarily comes from the left not that it is not that. Libertarians don't bring it up at times that you know, the United States by being around the world gives an imperialist imagery when it comes down to it even in time where the media portrays United States as his complete mess. Trump's in charge. It's just nuts. It's just infighting. All the time when it comes down to it. The United States is still trusted as fair as being the leader in promoting democracy, worldwide you and I both said when we weren't working together. But it was when we went into Iraq. And I and we were doing different shows. But you know, you, and I've had the discussion on it. And we both said the same thing that if you're going to go in you better be willing to go in for decades. You cannot go into countries and then win and then leave because all you're doing is creating a vacuum. It's what we did in Iraq. It created a vacuum. We had to get back in again now. Yeah, there was pressure from a part of the of of the country in Iraq. You know for the United States to leave. But as we know because you, and I covered it in specific detail. The United States under President Obama really wasn't pushing to stay at all. No, no. They really weren't. They really weren't pushing. They really weren't negotiating and the Iraqi government had no trust. In the Obama administration to commit so it got down to the point where they were. Well, we really can't trust this government. So we're better to be on the side of the public that says get out, and we wanna do this on our own now where are they in Iraq? And as you, and I've said before if you're going to be and if you're going to change a country that has been under to Tallaght -tarian government for decades as Iraq was you need to stay in more than one generation. So you have generation of people that have lived under freedom, and they become accustomed to it. They know they know nothing else. But that not that they're going to be the US when they're on the other side of it. It's just that they have the freedom to make those choices. Well, I don't care if they're the US they become close enough to the US once they start practicing capitalism. And and this is what we've seen with. Well. Up until recently. The new attitude by the Saudis, we'll see where that go right from from here. But but the idea is that you you have an entire region that could change shift drastically a drastically. And after that shift that would be lasting because you wouldn't. Well, what did we see in Iran? With with the in in, you know, a young person from around who's who's a great life. She's now a citizen, right? Yes. She became a citizen. I think about three years ago. I haven't seen in a long long time. But you know, the the point is is that the young people were discovering the next generation Chris was discovering not that we had a presence in Iran, but the through the internet through communications, they were discovering. Different different cultures. I guess and and and they wanted they wanted more freedom, and they're like well when by the time, she became a well by the time, she came to America. I mean within an I probably met her after she had been here. I'm about a year or two here's completely Americanized. But she, but as she told me, she said because I asked her I said, well, you know, said look talked me, do, you know. Do you hate is there a part of you that even though you came over here because she was able to come over because her she had family that was over here. There was a certain window. She had to make that decision. She made it at like eighteen sushi kept she came over. And she said, no, we love the United States. And I said, well, then what's the problem in your country? And I'm quoting her. She said, it's our stupid, religion and our stupid government. And I said, well, how do you know that she said we have the internet? I said can't they block it. She'll snow. They may think they're blocking it. But they can't they can't block it all over the country. She said there's there's there's too many people in too many avenues for you to find out information now, which was again, I think it's an eye opener. When you when you realize that, but when you look at a rack, and when you when you look at any country once start practicing capitalism, which means voluntarily you, you engage in in contracts with others for your mutual benefit for your own self interest, and you have to cooperate with each other. That's why we have talked about the fact that one of the biggest things that will come out of the United States becoming the world leader in in oil and natural gas is it will force other countries in the Middle East that didn't have to modernize. They didn't. Have to practice capitalism, which means when you practice capitalism, you have to cooperate with other people worldwide, which means you have to be open and accept other people's customs. And other and other people's ways you have to become more open to all other societies as we are here in the United States. And so that's the biggest thing that I think will come out of it is he's countries. And you see that push for example in Saudi Arabia. But I also think you see it quietly and a lot of other countries once they once they start doing it. And so if you know are people are gonna think exactly the same. No, they're not going to. But they end up. You don't want it. Again, there is no expectation people think the same. But you want them to be volved in the culture of what the culture of voluntarily cooperating with other people and accepting people why because it's better for your it's better for your self interest. And and that's what capitalism does so. But the interesting in Iraq where the leadership insisting that the United States, they're there when they saw the Syria thing, they're very concerned about it. They want the the Iraqi leadership wants the United States to stay in there because United States supplies. What what is the symbol now of the United States military in Iraq? Security and freedom. Well, and again, I think that thirty three months was a huge lesson for even some of the people some of the citizens of Iraq. When they saw the fall of Mosul they saw what their enemy ISIS could do. Well over a period. What is it fifteen years now over a period of fifteen years? You learn what people are about. And in fifteen years you're talking about a new generation coming in. You're telling talking about anybody was seventeen eighteen years old is now in their mid thirties. Yeah. That'd be what fourteen years here in a couple of months March of two thousand three right? Yeah. Wow. Now, six sixty six six six fifteen hundred fifteen going on. Yeah. That's generation. I mean, that's a that's completely. I mean when when you talk about the the the young adults that are that are were teenagers back then now in their late twenties and well into their thirties. And if you were twenty at that point, you know, you're in your twenty twenty one twenty two you're in your late thirties..

"He's Gary McNamara. Eric Harley as we move into a Thursday, Gary how are you not bad, and you and I did some calculating care in our show meeting figured out that under Jeff Bezos divorce settlement his ex wife should be able to finance one thousand wall. Yes, we have determined here. At the Red Eye Radio math headquarters, let's go to the math desk now. And we believe calculating based on what the reported wealth of Jeff Bezos is and what his wife of twenty five years will likely get in a divorce. She will be able to. To by the wall. And also still get your deliveries within two days. In fact, she she'll be able to deliver the wall in two days for free. You know, what's interesting is the talk of whether of how the divorce will be structured because she could end up. It's quite possible. With the being the biggest shareholder of Amazon. Now, Jeff Bezos is at sixteen percent of the shares I believe and this happened was Steve Wynn when he divorced his wife back in two thousand ten she ended up getting the majority more shares than than he did. So she had a bigger seat at the table. So. The the real estate guy who on the dodgers, I'm blanking on his name. But his divorce basically forced the family to sell the dodgers. So that could be a big big deal. Remember when Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg got divorced two years. And at the time, it's the biggest settlement. And it was like it was like one hundred million bucks. Ondrej million you live in a totally different neighborhood than Jeff Bezos. Now, what what would it be if they split it, isn't that seventy eighty billion base? So the wealth calculation is fluctuating this like right because the shares go up and down, right? Although Amazon was still there. Investors are still saying you should still by Amazon it's still growing, but it's anywhere between estimates today anywhere between one hundred thirty five to one hundred and fifty billion. It was reported last year. Hundred and sixty billion worth a trillion and sixteen percent, they right or trillion dollars. Right. Right. And so that's you know, it would make sense that then she would get eighty billion. She would get roughly half of that wealth, depending there there could be a pre-nup in place, but keep in mind that was twenty five years ago when they got married, you know, he did not have the the wealthy has today. But who knows maybe they did it just to do it? Maybe maybe it was trendy to do prenups. So no one knows about the. The details of it just the rumors surrounding it.

Here we go coming up here. Trump apparently walked out of the meeting butts, not angry vice president Pence out and say, no he didn't storm out. He walked out. Yeah. He's the one that left, but he came into the meeting handing out candy to people.

It's isis. It is the it is the radicals. And you learn.

"Hello and welcome Gary McNamara. I'm Eric Harley as we move into a Thursday, Gerry, how're you not bad. And you and I did some calculating here in our pre show meeting figured out that under Jeff visas divorce settlement his ex wife should be able to finance one thousand wall. Yes, we have determined here. At the Red Eye Radio math headquarters, let's go to the math desk now. And we believe calculating based on what the reported wealth of Jeff Bezos is and what his wife twenty-five years will likely get in a divorce. She will be able to buy the wall and also still get your deliveries within two days. She she she'll be able to deliver the wall in two days for free. You know, what's interesting is the talk of whether of how the divorce will be structured because she could end up. It's quite possible. With the being the biggest shareholder of Amazon. Now Jones does is at sixteen percent of the shares. I believe and this happened with Steve Wynn when he divorced his wife back in two thousand ten she ended up getting the majority or more shares than than he did. So she had a bigger seat at the table. So the the real estate guy who on the dodgers, I'm blanking on his name. But his divorced basically forced the family to sell the dodgers. So that could be it could be a big big deal. Remember when Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg got divorced two years. And at the time, it was the biggest settlement, and that it was it was like one hundred million bucks. Ondrej million you live in a totally different neighborhood than Jeff Bezos. Now what what would it be? I mean, if they split it, isn't that seventy eighty billion. Base. So the wealth calculation is fluctuating. Let's like right because the shares go up and down, right? Although Amazon, you know, was still there. Investors are still saying you should still by Amazon it's still growing, but it's anywhere between estimates today anywhere between one hundred thirty five to one hundred and fifty billion. It was reported last year was one hundred and sixty billion worth a trillion interview sixteen percent, they write first trillion dollars. Right. Right. Right. And so that's you know, it would make sense that then she would get eighty billion. She would get roughly half of that wealth, depending there there could be a pre-nup in place, but keep in mind that was twenty five years ago when they got married. You know, he did not have the the wealthy has today. But who knows maybe they did it just to do it? Maybe maybe it was trendy to do prenups. So no one knows about the. The details of it just the rumors surrounding it. You saw the National Enquirer story that's been circulating that he he was having an affair with the wife of a Hollywood agent. And so and he sat in his Bezos said in his tweet that they'd been separated for some time. Good luck to both of them. Just make sure my packages there in two days. Or less well here. Here we go coming up here. Trump apparently walked out of the meeting butts, not angry vice president Pence out and say, no he didn't storm out. He walked out. Yeah. He's the one that left, but he came into the meeting handing out candy to people. So we'll get to that New York Times story makes the point that we've been making I don't know for a long time new polling on border security. That's really interesting new report out Camila Harris to announce the run for president this month. Iraqi leaders urge the United States to keep a troop presence in their country. Mhm? Well, we know what has happened. I mean, the fall of muscle when it happened it lasted ISIS had control for thirty three months. You were the one that pointed out when when when Iraq gained remember that weekend. Something else was going on in the news and Iraq gained control of Mosul over a weekend. And there again there was there was big news somewhere else. And that was a that was a kind of on the back burner, but it was a huge story. And you you pointed that out, and we talked about it when they regained control over Mosul. But they know they know full, well what can happen? Well, I mean, this is the thing where you will have an primarily comes from the left not that it is not that. Libertarians don't bring it up at times that, you know, the United States by being around the world gives an imperialist, you know, imagery when it comes down to it even. In in a time where the media portrays United States as complete mess. Trump's in charge. It's just nonsense just infighting all the time when it comes down to it. The United States is still trusted as fair as being the leader in promoting democracy, worldwide you and I both said when we weren't working together. But it was when we went into Iraq. And I and we were doing different shows. But you know, you, and I've had the discussion on it. And we both said the same thing that if you're going to go in you better be willing to go in for decades. You cannot go into countries and then win and then leave because all you're doing is creating a vacuum. It's what we did in Iraq. It created a vacuum. We had to get back in again now. Yeah. There was pressure from part of the of of the country in Iraq. You know for the United States to leave. But as we know because you, and I covered it in specific detail. The United States under President Obama really wasn't pushing to stay at all. No, no. They really weren't. They really weren't pushing. They really weren't negotiating and the Iraqi government had no trust. In the Obama administration to commit so it got down to the point where they were. Well, we really can't trust this government. So we're better to be on the side of the public that says get out, and we wanna do this on our own now where are they in Iraq? And as you, and I've said before if you're going to be and if you're going to change a country that has been under totalitarian government for decades as Iraq was you need to stay in more than one generation. So you have generation of people that have lived under freedom, and they become accustomed to it. They know they know nothing else. But that not that they're going to be the US when they're on the other side of it. It's just that they have the freedom to make those choices. Well, I don't care if they're the US they become close enough to the US once they start practicing capitalism. And and this is what we've seen with. Well. Up until recently. The new attitude by the Saudis, we'll see where that go right from from for here. But, but the idea is that you you have an entire region that could change shift dramatically a drastically. And after that shift that would be lasting because you wouldn't. Well, what did we see in Iran? With with the in in, you know, a young person from Iran, who's who's made a great life. She's now citizen, right? Yes. She became a citizen. I think about three years ago. I haven't seen her in a long long time. But the point is is that the young people were discovering the next generation was discovering not that we had a presence in Iran, but the through the internet through communications, they were discovering. Different different cultures. I guess and and and they wanted they wanted more freedom. They're like well when by the time, she became a a well by the time, she came to America. I mean within and I probably met her after she had been here. I'm about a year or two here's completely Americanized. But she, but as she told me, she said because I asked her I said, well, you know, said look talked me, do, you know. Do you hate is there a part of you that even though you came over here because she was able to come over because her she had family that was over here. And there was a certain window. She had to make that decision. She made it at like eighteen sushi kept she came over. And she said, no, we love the United States. And I said, well, then what's the problem in your country? And I'm quoting her. She said, it's our stupid, religion and our stupid government. And I said, well, how do you know this? She said we have the internet. I said can't they block it. She goes, no. They may think they're blocking it. But they can't they can't block it all over the country. She said there's there's there's too many people in too many avenues for you to find out information now, which was again, I think it's an eye opener. When you when you realize that, but when you look at Iraq, and when you when you look at any country once I start practicing capitalism, which means voluntarily you, you wouldn't gauge in in contracts with others for your mutual benefit for your own self interest, and you have to cooperate with each other. That's why we have talked about the fact that one of the biggest things that will come out of the United States becoming the world leader in in oil and natural gas is it will force other countries in the Middle East that didn't have to modernize. They didn't. Have to practice capitalism, which means when you practice capitalism, you have to cooperate with other people worldwide, which means you have to be open and accept other people's customs. And other and other people's ways you have to become more open to all other societies as we are here in the United States. And so that's the biggest thing that I think will come out of it as these countries, and you see that push for example in Saudi Arabia. But I also think you see it quietly in a lot of other countries. Have you know, once they once they start doing it? And so if you know are people are gonna think exactly the same. No, they're not going to. But they end up. You don't want it. Again, there is no expectation people think the same. But you want them to be involved in the culture of what the culture of voluntarily cooperating with other people and accepting people why because it's better for your it's better for your self interest. And and that's what capitalism does so. But the interesting in Iraq where the leadership insisting that the United States, they're there when they saw the Syria thing, they're very concerned about it. They want the the Iraqi leadership wants the United States to stay in there because United States supplies. What what is the symbol now of the United States military in Iraq? Security and freedom. Well, and again, I think that thirty three months was a huge lesson for even some of the people some of the citizens of Iraq. When they saw the fall of Mosul they saw what their enemy ISIS could do. Well over a period. What is it fifteen years now over a period of fifteen years? You learn what people are about. And in fifteen years you're talking about a new generation coming in. You're telling talking about anybody was seventeen eighteen years old is now in their mid thirties. Seattle be what fourteen years here and a couple of months March of two thousand three right? Yeah. Wow. Now, six sixty six six fifteen hundred fifteen going on. Yeah. That's generation. That's a that's complete mean when when you talk about the the the young adults that are that are you know were teenagers back then now in their late twenties and well into their thirties..

And you're in business you've experienced you've experienced the security of the United States being there you've seen what it was. And you sorta figured out as an adult who to hate and who not to hate, and you figured out the United States is not the United States military and the presence. There is not the people to hate. It's isis. Eight is the is the radicals. And you learn. And we've often said this that over the last you think about that over the last eighty years eighty to one hundred years the best Representative of what the United States has been about his been the occupying forces of the United States military in Europe in Asia.

And I said, well, then what's the problem in your country, and I'm quoting her? She said, it's our stupid, religion and our stupid government. And I said, well, how do you know this? She said we have the internet. I said can't they blockage? Go snow. They may think they're blocking it. But they can't they can't block it all over the country. She said, there's there's you know there. There's too many people in too many avenues for you to find out information now, which was again, I think it's an eye opener. When you when you realize that, but when you look at Iraq, and when you when you look at any country once I start practicing capitalism, which means voluntarily you, you engage in in contracts with others for your mutual benefit for your own self interest, and you have to cooperate with each other. That's why we have talked about the fact that one of the biggest things that will come out of the United States becoming the world leader in in oil and natural gas is it will force other countries in the Middle East that didn't have to modernize. They didn't. To practice capitalism. Which means when you practice capitalism, you have to cooperate with other people worldwide, which means you have to be open and accept other people's customs. And other and other people's ways you have to become more open to all other societies as we are here in the United States. And so that's the biggest thing that I think will come out of it is he's countries. And you see that push for example in Saudi Arabia. But I also think you see it quietly in a lot of other countries once once one start doing it. And so if you know, our people are to think exactly the same. No, they're not going to. But they end up. You don't want it again, there is no expectation people think the same. But you want them to be in the culture of what? The culture of voluntarily cooperating with other people and accepting people why because it's better for your it's better for your self interest. And and that's what capitalism does so. But the interesting in Iraq, where the leadership insisting that the United States, they're they're, you know, when they saw the Syria thing, they're very concerned about it. They want the the Iraqi leadership wants the United States to stay in there because United States supplies. What what is the symbol now of the United States military in Iraq? Security and freedom. Well, and again, I think that thirty three months was a huge lesson for even some of the people some of the citizens of Iraq. When they saw the fall of Mosul they saw what their enemy ISIS could do. Well over a period. What is it fifteen years now over a period of fifteen years? You learn what people are about. And in fifteen years, you're talking about a new generation coming in your telling talking about anybody was seventeen eighteen years old is now in their mid thirties. That'd be what fourteen years here in a couple of months March of two thousand three right? Yeah. Wow. Six sixteen hundred sixty six fifteen hundred fifteen going on. Yeah. That's generation. I mean that that's a that's complete mean when when you talk about the the the young adults that are that are you know were teenagers back then now in their late twenties and well into their thirties. And if you were twenty at that point, you know, you're in your twenty twenty one twenty two you're in your late thirties..

"Radio. Hello and welcome. He's Gary McNamara. I'm Eric Harley as we move into Thursday, Jerry. How are you not bad, and you and I did some calculating back here in our pre show meeting figured out that under Jeff Bezos divorce settlement his ex wife should be able to finance one thousand wall. Yes, we have determined here. At the Red Eye Radio math headquarters, let's go to the math desk now. And we believe calculating based on what the reported wealth of Jeff Bezos is and what his wife of twenty five years will likely get a divorce. She will be able to buy the wall and also still get your deliveries within two days. Eventually she'll be able to deliver the wall in two days for free. You know, what's interesting is the talk of of whether of how the divorce will be structured because she could end up. It's quite possible. With the being the biggest shareholder of Amazon does is at sixteen percent of the shares. I believe and this happened was Steve Wynn when he divorced his wife back in two thousand ten she ended up getting the majority or more shares than than he did. So she had a bigger seat at the table. So the the real estate guy who on the dodgers, I'm blanking on his name. But his divorce basically forced the family to sell the dodgers. So that could be a big big deal. Remember when Amy Irving and Steven Spielberg got divorced two years. And at the time, it was the biggest settlement, and that it was like it was like one hundred million bucks. Unread million you live in a totally different neighborhood than Jeff Bezos. Now what what would it be? I mean, if they split it, isn't that seventy eighty billion base. So the wealth calculation is fluctuating it's like right because the shares go up and down, right? Although Amazon was still there investors still saying you should still by Amazon it's still growing, but it's anywhere between estimates today anywhere between one hundred thirty five to one hundred and fifty billion. It was reported last year one hundred and sixty billion worth a trillion interviewed a sixteen percent. They write first trillion dollars. Right. Right. Right. And so that's you know, it would make sense that then she would get eighty billion. She would get roughly half of that wealth, depending there there could be a pre-nup in place, but keep in mind that was twenty five years ago when they got married. You know, he did not have the the wealthy has today. But who knows maybe they did it just to do it? Maybe maybe it was trendy to do pre nuts. So no one knows about the. The details of it just the rumors surrounding it. You saw the National Enquirer story that's been circulating that he he was having an affair with the wife of a Hollywood agent. And so and he sat in his visas said in his tweet that they'd been separated for some time. Good luck to both of them. Just make sure my packages there in two days. Well, here here we go coming up here. Trump apparently walked out of the meeting not angry vice president Pence out and say, no he didn't storm out. He walked out. Yeah. He's the one that left, but he came into the meeting handing out candy to people. So we'll get to that New York Times story makes the point that we've been making I don't know for a long time new polling on border security. That's really interesting new report out Camila Harris to announce the run for president this month. Iraqi leaders urge the United States to keep a troop presence in their country. Well, we know what has happened. I mean, the fall of muscle when it happened it lasted ISIS had control for thirty three months. You were the one that pointed out when when when Iraq gained remember that weekend. Something else was going on in the news and Iraq gain control of Mosul over the weekend. And there again there was there was big news somewhere else. And that was a that was a kind of on the back burner, but it was a huge story. And you you pointed that out we talked about it when they regained control over Mosul. But they know they know full, well what can happen? Well, this is the thing where you will have an primarily comes from the left not that it is not that. Libertarians don't bring it up at times that you know, the United States by being around the world gives an imperialist imagery when. It comes down to it. Even in a time where the media portrays United States as his complete mess at Trump's in charge. It's just nonsense just inviting all the time when it comes down to it. The United States is still trusted as fair as being the leader in promoting democracy worldwide. You and I both said when we weren't working together. But it was when we went into Iraq. And I and we were doing different shows. But you know, you, and I've had the discussion on it. And we both said the same thing that if you're going to go in you better be willing to go in for decades. You cannot go into countries and then win and then leave because all you're doing is creating a vacuum. It's what we did in Iraq. It created a vacuum. We had to get back in again now. Yeah, there was pressure from a part of the of the country in Iraq. You know for the United States to leave. But as we know because you, and I covered it in specific detail the United States under President Obama really wasn't pushing to stay at all. No, they really weren't. They really weren't pushing. They really weren't negotiating and the Iraqi government had no trust. In the Obama administration to commit so it got down to the point where they were. Well, we really can't trust this government. So we're better to be on the side of the public that says get out, and we wanna do this on our own now where are they in Iraq? And as you, and I've said before if you're going to be an if you're going to change a country that has been under totalitarian government for decades as a rack was you need to stay in more than one generation. So you have generation of people that have lived under freedom, and they'd become accustomed to it. They know what they know nothing else. But that not they're going to be the US when they're on the other side of it. It's just that they have the freedom to make those choices. Well, I don't care if they're the US they become close enough to the US once they start practicing capitalism. And this is what we've seen with. Well. Up until recently. The new attitude by the Saudis, we'll see where that go right from from, you know, from here, but but the idea is that you you have an entire region that could change shift drastically a drastically. And after that shift that would be lasting because you wouldn't. But what do we see in Iran with with the in in, you know, a young person from around who's who's and made a great life. She's now citizen, right? Yes. You became a citizen. I think about three years ago I haven't seen in a long long time. But you know, the the point is is that the young people were discovering the next generation was discovering not that we had a presence in Iran, but the through the internet through communications, they were discovering different different cultures. I guess and and and they wanted they wanted more freedom in their life. Well, when by the time, she became a US. Well by the time, she came to America, I mean within and I'd probably met her. After she had been here. I'm about a year or two is completely Americanized. But she, but as she told me, she said because I asked her I said, well, you know, said look talked me, do, you know. Do you hate is there a part of you that even though you came over here because she was able to come over because her she had family that was over here. There was a certain window. She had to make that decision. She made it at like eighteen soon as she gets she came over. And she said, no, we love the United States. And I said, well, then what's the problem in your country, and I'm quoting her? She said, it's our stupid, religion and our stupid government. And I said, well, how do you know this? She said we have the internet. I said can't they blockage? Go snow. They may think they're blocking it. But they can't they can't block it all over the country. She said there's there's there's too many people in too many avenues for you to find out information now, which was again, I think it's an eye opener. When you when you realize that, but when you look at a rack, and when you when you look at any country once I start practicing capitalism, which means voluntarily you, you engage in in contracts with others for your mutual benefit for your own self interest, and you have to cooperate with each other.

And so that's the biggest thing that I think will come out of it is these countries, and you see that push for example in Saudi Arabia.

You don't want it again, there is no expectation people think the same. But you want them to be volved in the culture of what the culture of voluntarily cooperating with other people and accepting people wide because it's better for your. It's better for your self interest. And and that's what capitalism does so. But the interesting in Iraq where the leadership a insisting that the United States they're there when they saw the serious thing they're very concerned about. It they want the the Iraqi leadership wants the United States to stay in there because United States supplies. What what is the symbol now of the United States military in Iraq? Security and freedom. Well, and again, I think that thirty three months was a huge lesson for even some of the people some of the citizens of Iraq. When they saw the fall of Mosul they saw what their enemy ISIS could do. Well over a period. What is it fifteen years now over a period of fifteen years? You learn what people are about. And in fifteen years you're talking about a new generation coming in.

Six six hundred sixty six right? Fifteen hundred fifteen going on. Yeah. That's generation. That's a that's complete mean when when you talk about the the the young adults that are that are you know were teenagers back then now in their late twenties and well into their thirties. And if you were twenty at that point, you know, you're in your twenty twenty one twenty two you're in your late thirties. And you're in business you've experienced that you've experienced the security of the United States being there you've seen what it was. And you sorta figured out as an adult who to hate who not to hate, and you figured out the United States is not the United States military and the presence. There is not the people to hate. It's isis. Eight is the is the radicals. And you learn. And we've often said this that over the last you think about that over the last eight years eighty to one hundred years the best Representative of what the United States has been about is Ben the occupying forces of the United States military in Europe in Asia. And and now you're seeing it in the Middle East. You may not what you may not you may be may have that opinion..

"Good evening. I'm Pat Thurston. Tim Sika is my guest. Movie critic, how are we gonna do this? Now, Tim movie critic who has a website. Critic who has a website? Yeah. Gate movie critic, and and we love to have him on K G O. So okay. So let's do talk a little bit about green book. Because I when I started watching the the movie, I didn't think I was going to like it. And I ended up just loving it. I think the development of the relationship between the the Italian tough guy and the very wealthy and sophisticated black piano player. Maestro. Was extraordinary. I thought the way they developed. It was so good which and I just loved it. And there wasn't. There wasn't wasn't an overabundance of his interference. And, you know, having to protect him in the deep south, and I love the things about his black identity. And you know, I just loved it. I thought it was so terrific. And I was so glad I'm a the way it ended. Movies that the whole development captured you don't wanna go away from it. And then it brings you to a very satisfying ending, and this is all based on a true story. Yeah. Don, Shirley, was the name of the guy. He was a classical pianist who sort of did a lot of popular in very well educated. He was Dr Don, Shirley, Dr Don, John and he lives on top of Carnegie Hall in New York. Mark, which I thought was really funny. I'm in a way. But yeah, I can't add much to what you said, Pat. I just thought it was an interesting character study being criticized for the people are saying, oh, it's you know, it was written in designed to make white men. Feel good about not being prejudiced or something. But what's what I think? Well, I think what people are saying that they're missing the point. Because one of the screenwriters was the son of Villalonga. What was his name? Tony Tony Villalonga his son wrote it as a tribute to his dad. So I don't know what he was supposed to do otherwise to make it maybe more ethnically diverse. I know people are sensitive now. And they they they say things like that. And the movie's been sorta shut up. This was a true story any was about this guy who was an Italian tough guy and the things that he did. And that he was a BS, sir. And you know, how it served him in his life. How uneducated and unsophisticated he was and he went through an amazing transformation. But it was it was kinda slow, and it was totally believable. Yeah. I agree with you. I knew that everything you say, I I liked it. I'm glad you're very enthusiastically liking it. It's making me sort of feel bad that I've been. Recommending it. But in sort of with with with a sort of reservation in my voice, you know, because know, one or the other good things was so you're in the deep south, and they met up with, you know, police officers who were enforcing for example, sundown laws, you know, the things that they would do and they were crooked, and they were horrible people. And I thought it was nice that as they went back up north their encounter was such a positive one, and you're afraid for them, you know, until that encounter. And so it was it was kind of good because it it didn't again paint. All people who are wearing a uniform. Right, right. So Bs right. Exactly. Yeah. And I don't know about you. But I didn't even know that such a thing as the green book existed didn't before I saw this movie, and it was a motorist skied for African Americans traveling through the south, you know, you can stay at these hotels. You can't stay at these hotels. I I mean, it didn't even. Go into the fact that they could be pulled over, and, you know, arrested and put in jail for you know, for no cause at all. But that that to me was one of the most interesting things that has the title. Well, you know, when when you talked with this movie after you saw it I had never heard of the green book. And so I looked it up. And I read about what the green book was. And I asked some of my black colleagues. Were you familiar with it and all of them were they knew what it isn't that interesting? Yeah. Well, yeah. I know I know sometimes the movie was funny. I it was beautifully acted Vigo Mortenson. And I can never say he's named Marsha Ali played, Don, Shirley and. Yeah, it was he play piano was that him playing because. Every time. I watched it. And I've seen it a couple of times. Now, I kept asking myself that question, and I never I never looked to see if he was he certainly did all the fingerings. So you wonder a lot of times in movie, if the actress can do it because it's really hard to you have to have like a split brain to play some of those classical pieces in those arrangements because one hand has to be doing something totally independent of the other which is doing something else. And if the actors like there was a movie called what was the name of that movie with Amy Irving, and Richard Dreyfuss the competition. Right. Where they were. They were they were they they played piano will Richard Dreyfuss. Apparently it drove him nuts. He mastered the finger what they do is. They learned the fingering. And then they they layer it over with a with a professional piano player who matches the fingering. So it looks like they're playing. I don't know if he if he actually played it or not, but he was convincing, Shirley. Sure. When they would show people playing the piano, they were just cut to their face and their eyes would be closed they'd be going along. But you never saw there. If you saw their hands hitting the keyboard, it was always a cut to their hands. But you never saw you know, you never saw the the the actor actually playing. But now now they can do that stuff. But I don't know good question. It looks like he played. Okay. So I want to say that was a really good one in I received an Email from one of our listeners ash who said he just saw on the basis of sex in San Rafael, he wants to recommend to everyone who desires to see a film with depth history and inspiration. He says don't miss this one. Yeah. I yeah. I agree. I think we re I think we talked about that it was either last week or the week before. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's a it's a terrific movie. And before we get to yours because I know we have a lot we're gonna we're gonna do here. One other that I saw and I watched last night. I think we watched it on Amazon, even though I have the screener for it. We watched a beautiful boy. And I you think I didn't really like it. I mean, I read the book, and I really liked the book there were things that were not emphasized in the movie that I thought made the book so good. And I thought it was choppy it was difficult because they you know, they they start at one point they go back one year, it's difficult when you're doing the going back only one year to discern what's lash back, and what's current and put it all together. And then there were scenes of childhood. I think it would have worked better if it was chronological, and I didn't think there was enough about the his family relationship. You know, the existing family because that was a huge part of Nick was. Really causing enormous issues within this idyllic family, and that was difficult because the father was torn, and it was, you know, the, you know, the. They based the screenplay on both of the books, and I didn't read the second book sons Nick chefs was he wrote a memoir of his own experiences from his perspective than his dad did wrote one two which was a New York Times bestseller. It was on the bestseller list for a long time. It was okay. It was nice to see the scenery of the places I recognize, but I didn't really like it. It should know what you mean. I had reservations about the movie. I think I recall I reckon I was still recommending it though. Because I thought it was an important envy. And I thought it was an important story. And I thought that was enough good ended. I thought the acting was pretty good. I've shallow may was good. And and corral was good. You know? And so it had enough in it. But I know what you mean, it just sort of didn't it wasn't fully satisfying. I would read the book instead. Yeah. It's not the longest book, and it's it's very impactful. And then you don't miss some of the nuance and things maybe we were talking about Leonard Maltin earlier, I think they're review of the bible. John Huston directed a film in the sixties called the bible in the beginning. Right. And I think they gave it like one and a half star, Leonard Maltin. It's in and the review was read the book instead. Which is perfect. Mr. is perfect a perfect takedown. Okay. So I think I'm looking at the clock Tim, and I think what we should probably just take a little break here. Come back and talk about standing Ali. And then I would like to talk about some of your best dubs, and they great only one you list as worst. I I'd like to talk about that. Okay. I had the screener for and I haven't watched it yet. You have to see it. You should. Bad movies, right? And I'll see it with my kids. Feeling the girls are going to like it probably. Probably. Yeah. He's pretty discerning. She's yeah. I don't know yet. Well, we'll talk about it. All right. Okay. So Tim Sika is my guest. He, of course, is a film critic his website is celluloiddreams dot net.
