"Them by surprise we understand why they have those beaches we surprise him but that would that seems like a I think for a lot of people me included I thought they were a little more prepared to talk about the how the where they set up how they were able to basically like almost like a like a fish in a barrel kind of shooting for our boys climbing the cliffs they didn't have any on near any anti aircraft flight yeah yes we have from an aircraft are very little and no no no German fighters wow what all of our power so you place on the beach that was June sixth now you do not have a bombing run again until June twelfth in those six days what what was it like what was the morale like what was the process like wild course we had our fingers crossed we got it on the ground and lieutenant well I think I think St Lowell was coming up there I'm not sure that you better not a that Andrew Fletcher for held up a single for quite awhile we want there two days and roll and mom the family two days and then they moved it to shoot on out on the on Shea little with feeling nervous got to close the bombing line and was killed by our own bombers or that day that interview still of of everything that I've ever done that interview ranks in the in the top two I'm not quite sure where in the top two it ranks in who the other one or one other interview would be in it was just tough to watch too many sitting five feet from me just to watch him engage in in this conversation we also got into this really kind of valuable conversation that after this he he had rotated back home for a little while back to the U. S. and there was a doctor there who realize you know what I don't think you're okay I think you can stay here for a while and it was this all sounds very open conversation about mental health which is so much now conversation the United States because of lockdowns in because of what people are dealing with you're starting to hear from doctors everyone else that staying home he is is getting people killed being away from others is leading to some horrors yes suicide is not something I play around with it is awful the national suicide prevention lifeline one eight hundred two seven three eight two five five by the way you're hearing this daily from me just a quick here's the number eight hundred two seven three eight two five five we've done to ourselves as a nation is pretty problematic is gonna need to be discussed for a long time to come but I was thrilled to hear this this the soldier discusses issues now throw down the opportunity to speak to him for an hour one day I'm Tony Katz what is Memorial.

"A legal movie to today keeping expectations in check. I enjoyed the first LEGO movie I'm going because I have a twelve year old and a lot of LEGO in the house. Yeah. And I'd like to I've seen the trailers. So you know, we'll see we'll see how pans out. Nothing else. That's coming out this week. I've really have any desire to see what men want. We can talk a little bit more about that. But yeah. I'm kinda looking forward to. Yeah. I'm to wait and see a movie to probably don't have kids in the demo. But the first lady was legitimately funny guy. I really enjoyed it overrated though, I thought it was definitively overrated. I mean, part was the bar was so low it seems so stupid. But like, my my big problem with the movie is it was just a long commercial was an hour and a half long commercial. It was someone figured out. We can sold Legos, and we can sell fifty different other properties. And I just I just felt like I was young. Oh, it's absolute one hundred all the time. And that's what kind of gross me out. It's it's it's marketing, but it's clever and smart marketing because it's entertaining. But I don't want to pay to see market. Sure. Sure. Sure. I agree with you a little bit on the overrated thing only because you know, one of the one of the criteria you'd like to use to judge a movie by is am I am I ever inclined to rewatch it? Do I seek it out to rewatch it? And while I enjoyed like a movie, and I laughed during LEGO movie, and I thought it was a lot of fun. I have not really been inclined to go put it back on. I haven't I never saw the original LEGO movie. So I really wanna watch that. I've heard a lot of good things about it. And I actually would be interested in seeing the LEGO movie to after I've seen the first one. I'm sure it doesn't matter to watch them both. But I'd like to I didn't realize though that they have like they've got a really good cast for these. Jason momoa, Chris Pratt Margot Robbie Channing Tatum. Allison, Brie, Elizabeth banks had Alcatel Jonah hill. It goes on and on and on and on and on welfare, all Bruce. Well, as just a lot of big names, I guess, and I didn't realize especially with so many that they had so many well known people. Yeah. It's sitting right now eighty four and eighty nine percent on rotten tomatoes for for what it's worth. Percents rotten tomatoes movies, though, you know, some of the ones where like it's just that. Nobody hated it. It's not that. It's so great sure that's the trickiest movies to gauge around to like like when like when Selma came out rotten tomatoes ninety percent. Who's going to be the guy who says Selma sucks? You know? It doesn't mean it's like the greatest movie ever, you know, and Legos like the almost resume serious. It's like the squishy version of that like how who can hate it. And I've seen I saw the the LEGO movie in theaters and the and the Batman movie in to what drew is saying, I wouldn't go back and watch either of those. But I I would go and rewatch the first LEGO movie thought the Batman one was fun almost funnier than the first leg of movie. I just dig dig the character dig the legal version of Batman with those insecurities is just really funny is it are they like, basically, creating like a marvel of the universe of marvel DC Star Wars hobbit. I mean, it's everything. Because there are legal kits for everything. Right. So somehow they've managed to convince all of the, you know, whoever's in charge of the IP for all of these various things or maybe it comes with their LEGO licensing deals, but yeah, you've got superman you've got marvel characters you've got DC characters. You've got. That's awesome Roger rabbit door. Yeah. That's part of the fun. I think of the movie is the mash up of all these characters that you would not interact credits mean in terms of like them having like the LEGO movie, the LEGO movie too. But then also the Batman movies Batman hide in. No, they're only tied in from the standpoint of their similar characters. There is no there is no common thread. Okay. So it like the movies all have very common building to something. The. Yeah. They should really all fit together in a very elaborate way the next to each other baby. Maybe they will. I'll say. Credit? Were granted to the fact that the movies are entertaining at all. Yeah. Lego mini figures. It's Lanny it's pretty impressive. Visually watch how they handle physics. It's it's really interesting. Yeah. How 'bout called pursuit the prodigy? What men want anybody, you know? And the what men want seems like it was written by somebody. That's not in the head of man. That's what it feels like just based on. Wasn't that of a woman story? Right. Got a good movie. Not a great premise. Also, what fifteen years old now what a strange thing to flip back awry agree. I don't get it. I don't understand why this movie was made certainly doesn't seem to fit in with the times. Now, you know what I mean, like gender binary doesn't it's very dated sort of concept in. Yeah. So it's kinda surprising that they would go this route. But yeah, it looks really unfunny. I've never once like, mentally celebrated. The fact that I just crop dusted somebody. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. You're walking in the trailer. She walks by this doorman or valet parking million. Somebody standing outside of a building. And he's again, that's my fart. You just walked through. Nobody nobody does. You is much better. The Netflix show, you is a much better realistic version of what's happened, not everybody. But what what's happening in people's minds for crying out loud. Who hasn't watched the trailer for what men want which I definitely haven't. And I will not see this movie because it looks sounds really dumb the synopsis for it goes past up for a well-deserved promotion. Sports agent alley Davis wonders what else she needs to do to succeed in a man's world. Hoping to find answers from a psychic alley drink so weird concoction that suddenly allows her to hear what men are thinking using her newfound ability. Allie starts to turn the tables on her obnoxious male colleagues while racing the sign of the next basketball superstar. No, I was like these movies the bodies which movies or anything like this was like did they go to a psychic to? They get struck by lightning did their kid wish upon a star. What's the thing? That makes the silly premise like effect. What was liar liar wish those workday versus? Right. I wish my dad couldn't tell a lie. That's right. Yeah. And then you've got the prodigy is a thriller horror movie. It's okay. If you four percent on rotten tomatoes famous. That falls into the category of of things I might use my AMC stubs. Perfect example in movie, if I didn't have a stubs card wherever I was no way. I would see the theater, but like I haven't used that. I'm gonna theater awhile. Maybe I'll see Sarah's young sung Yung son, miles disturbing behavior signals that an evil forces overtaken him caring for her family's safety, Sarah grapple with her maternal instinct to protect miles in favor up in favor of investigating what is causing his dark turn. You've got Taylor schilling and Peter Mooney schilling. It's pretty generic creepy kid movie. I'm I'm fine with generic creepy. Kid move. I'm fine with generic you see the orphan. Yeah. That's a good cricket cket movie fund, west generic horror movies as long as they aren't a horribly done or the premise isn't so ridiculous to me are perfectly fine way to kill ninety minutes to two hours of your life. They take this. They tend to give you exactly what they say. They're going to. Yes. More than most. Yes. Hanan movies, right? Go into them with with with with certain expectations and those expectations are usually not fulfilled. Sometimes some movies go past him. But you know, I go into with pretty low expectations. A perfect example would be escaper. I liked escape room. I went into escaper with low expectations, the PG thirteen horror movie, you know. Okay. I know what I'm getting with a PG thirteen movie. And that movie definitely surpassed the expectations coming out soon. I can't wait any either. The trailer looks great. Liam Neeson's, cold pursuit. Well, I have overtaken boy. That might be one of the more unforced errors in Hollywood publicity history. Yeah, I'm still not even I really haven't spent much time on that story. But from what I understand he just kind of came out and was like, yeah. Yeah. One time I wanted to just go beat up random black people. And the guy with them. Why? Okay. On his friend was assaulted, a friend of his was assaulted by by apparently, the assailant was he was a black person who got away and then so Liam Neeson sharing the story because it's a movie revenge movie, and he's like understand the character because I wanted to go and find any black guy. The guy sitting next to him goes. Holy s. Lou. Yup. Kind of the definition of racism. But he didn't. That'd be didn't beat up. Ralph Northam down the end, they have a phone in his hand. When he when he did it like us on he's call I run a he's dark, man. DVD and Blu Ray releases this week bohemian rhapsody. Yeah, I watched it. I love it. If I got to see the second half. I saw the first half on a plane in my plane back didn't have a movie screens. Oh, yeah. I want to see the end I enjoyed it. We were talking about this with north nickel little bit earlier. It's a really Queen rights. Great music, and they put some nice pictures to play during the clean music, but it's really not much more than that. I don't think I I enjoy it. I I really didn't enjoy it. I totally understand that we were actually joking about earlier this week was with withdrew that this was this was very much, the the let's brush the surface of a Freddie mercury's dark past and make it very palatable as possible. And obviously, that's what the this is what the band wanted with this because they didn't want to go with the original saucer baron Cohen version, I Mike you though, drew. I'm very interested to see if they were, but they were to go and do a a dark dark version of another negative. Yeah. More realistic versions because he did have some very dark times. Apparently, you get aids from making Eitan contact with a gas station mean that's what I learned from this movie. The movie is very whitewashed is very gloss over the the the whole point of Bahamian rhapsody is like you said wasn't, Freddie. Mercury. Awesome. And he was wasn't. He awesome. Wasn't. He a great singer wasn't. He a great performer. Didn't he makes such great music? That's it's a celebration of, Freddie. Mercury. That's what the movie is designed to be. That's what it is. And it delivers on that front. You walk out of that movie. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a wonderful time watching that movie. But I know, you know, there's a lot more to Freddie, Mercury than what that movie showed that. Yeah. I think that's that's unfair. I think there's like half of the movie seemed like it was music, which is great music. So I'm enjoying it was a lot of fun. I really liked it. Well, and as a as a a massive Depeche mode fan. Everything about that band. And they went to their birthdays, the the. Andrew Fletcher, shares my birthday. That was easy. Dave gone. The lead singer almost died of a drug overdose. In the in the in the late night. It was like nineteen ninety four real dark time was ABC's bad. I know all the details of what happened on the floor shooting up all nine yards. If they weren't you ever make a Depeche mode movie like a bohemian rhapsody as a fan. I would wanna see done bohemian rhapsody saw style because of the band that I like so much. I I would much rather. I'd be interested in disabled versions. But knowing the full version of the other story, I just as a fan. I'm like, you know, what I'd like to see a really good uplifting. Representation of what this band is. And that's to me what bohemian rhapsody would was essentially don't like movies about art that reduce art do a series of shallow Piff unease feel inevitable where it's like the artist is standing there. And then somebody's words, you know, somebody's sitting there like somebody who's like a fruity seems as though another one has been in the dust, and he's like haw has a cocktail napkin, and it's like that's just how easy it is. Is it makes it I think it actually reduces, Freddie, mercury's brilliance to make it all look like it was just bound to happen to him to this like concoction of circumstance, well, and they take some video. Now, you haven't finish the movie, but we've discussed thinking blamed delta, we discussed this when it first came out, but they take some big liberties at the end in terms of the of the of the the storytelling. Yeah. And and really shoving together a series of events to to bring about eight citing a heightened sense of tension that just did not take place. I understand why they did it, and it was fun. It was fun watching it from just as a as a pure entertainment standpoint. I was disappointed. I was like, oh, I kinda sucks didn't play out the way that you know, getting them to the whole live eight festival. It was like a year apart from when they broke up. Yeah. That was a bit of. But it was still, you know, still I'm really looking forward to watching it again new out on streaming velvet a buzzsaw. Because I want to save the people. Belva buzz. Netflix curse strikes. Again. I I heard about this movie coming out like a year ago. It's Dan Gilroy written. He did a night crawler which I loved he's back with Jake Jilin hall, who by the way, I realized take Jilin hall is Saint Nicholas cage..
