"Nicole hall center, really one of the goats, one of the great living filmmakers, one of the great remember when she co wrote the last duel with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Yes, I also enjoyed her press tour during that. Why didn't we nominate them for adaptive screenplay? People didn't like that movie. They didn't see it, and they didn't like it. I liked it. That's on them. You heard my feeling sounds good. 8 24, coming through again. My number 8, which might be a 2024 movie, but I don't think so. I say might because there's some complications there, but I'm just going to say it's Ferrari. Now Ferrari is the new feature film from Michael Mann about Enzo Ferrari. Starring Adam Driver as a Ferrari. And yet more old man Italian grooming and makeup. He loves to look older and uglier than he actually does. Love it. I can't wait. So one, this will be the CR turns into a falcon episode. This movie actually comes out this year. The complication, and you know, of course it's yet another movie about a man who is obsessed with precision and getting the job done and kind of emotional stasis and not growing, but staying focused on his work, who can relate to Michael Mann. We all can. The film is going to be distributed by STX, which has been in a bit of a tricky circumstance. There was a Guy Ritchie movie called operation fortune ruz de guerre. Starring Jason Statham and Aubrey Plaza that I saw like a year ago? That still is not out. That's an STX movie. Perhaps they should revisit the title. I thought it worked. Okay. It also preceded the white lotus energy that Aubrey Plaza hadn't. She has it in that movie too. So anyhow, SEX movies are, they have a bunch of movies that are done and they're just not putting them out because I think there's some financing complications at the company right now. They paid for Michael Mann's movie, the production raft last year. So I don't know what his post production is going to be. I really hope it comes out soon.

"But if you are into that, I would say about once an episode, I will get a belly laugh from the show because they will do one thing that I think is absolutely hilarious. It's fun. You know, to see George Lopez back on network television. He's with his real-life daughter. There are other great performances in supporting cast, the little boy is hilarious on it. I think he steals the show. Yeah, he's pretty cute. Yeah. He's a cutie. He's a total cutie. But it's kind of formulaic, right? That's what Americans like. For sure. But I do think it's kind of going back, I'm sorry, going back to this rule. This fool is a formal aid. I mean, it had the comedy duo. There's no difference of this fool from, say, the odd couple or I love Lucy. Yeah. Where you have the two. You know what I'm saying? To me this pool is a more modern aesthetic. Exactly. Like Lopez versus Lopez is a throwback show, right? It's got the laugh track. It's a different vibe. Well, this fool is like tailored for today's audiences in a different way or maybe a younger audience versus Lopez versus Lopez is heartening back. Well, I've seen a lot of people tweet about it and saying like, oh, it's just great to see it on mainstream television. You know, our network TV. All right, so listen, I really hope you pitch. Your top ten list for us so we can publish it by the end of the year. Probably. So with that said, give me some of your gems that I haven't talked about that people should have paid attention. And we can focus on streamers on TV, series. We haven't even gotten into film, but I kind of feel like, let's stick with the streaming world. And give me some of the gems that I haven't talked about. So one that I included in my spooky list is let the right one in. It stars Demian bichir, who is one of the only Latinos. I think there's only four who've been nominated for an Oscar. For the best lead actor. And it's a vampire show, but it is a prestige vampire show that manages to be both scary and thought provoking and just super, super rich. They've turned a television show. It was previously a movie and the basic plot is that he's a dad who's 12 year old daughter gets turned into a vampire. And he has to figure out what to do. How do you protect her? What type of sacrifices do you make? Do you kill for someone? Do you die for someone when they're your kid? Well, it spooks me out every single time I watch it. There's only one more episode lab I can't wait to catch it. There are also a few a couple of standout performances and perhaps shows that aren't Latino shows, but that I want to highlight. White lotus is going viral and Aubrey Plaza is she's awesome. I'm sorry. Aubrey Plaza is, I loved her parks and rec. And I love the fact that she wears her bodice and she's like, she's aware of her identity. So she's, yeah, say more about her. Yes. And so in white lotus, she even talks about her identity and she talks about how her and her husband on this show are the white passing, the diverse white passing Friends, right? Because she's Puerto Rican and her husband is mixed race as well. And so there is that aspect of her identity and they talk about maybe some of her time growing up and visiting the island. But she also, this is not a show about identity, and she's just giving this stellar performance where you're constantly watching to see what is her character going to do. What is her reactions? How is she going? She's catapulting that series. I love it. It's so fascinating. So I want to shout out her. Another performance I want to shout out is in the a league of their own on Amazon. They have a whole Latina arc subset of that show, including the pitcher that I just found fascinating and it's also based on real history of the latinas who were in the women's league that I had no concept of and I just think those performances were amazing as well. So what grade would you give this year? If you could grade it in terms of representation with the streamers and television shows or in general, we haven't even talked like films, but if you can give it a grade, professor. I guess I would give us a B plus. I feel like a lot of great shows came out. A B plus, man, you're an easy grader, I love it. You think so? I feel like a lot of good shows come out. I feel like we're making progress. Yeah, I think so too. They are still canceling stuff. That doesn't deserve to be canceled. And there was a lot of frustration this year as well. But I guess I also am an optimist. So I'm going to have to believe that we're going to build on this. Keep going, get more and more. I was talking to a scholar who studies it and was saying that Latino representation goes up and then it goes down and then it goes up and then it goes down and that we haven't seen sort of a sustained rise when you look at the numbers and I'm hopeful that we're going to be able to start bucking that trend that we're getting more organized, which stuff that I do and stuff that you do. And that part is really key to keeping that upswing going up and not sort of sliding back. Well, I mean, go back to the start of this conversation. Wednesday, breaking records for Netflix is humongous, for the next wave of storytelling that our community deserves to see on the screen, right? I mean, you just made the business case, because you're absolutely right. I come from the school of, you don't have to have Latino in your face all the time. You just have to have fabulous creators just being themselves and just doing what they need to do. And just let it out there, take the risk, give that chance to people, and, and God bless Ortega, I mean, she's embraced it. And she's like, I know where I come from, I'm going to use my platform to remind everyone, and you know, Puerto Rican Mexicans, you know, that's a great combination to send. Agreed. Yeah. Hey, Christina. No, she's killing it. Yeah, she is. So where can people find you outside of Latino rebels so that they can learn more about you and your work? Because you're crushing it. Like I said, you're going to be film critic for Vanity Fair in a couple of years. So that's my hope for that. Go for it. People find you. So definitely check out Latina and co, which is my platform. We highlight a bunch of amazing Latina and sim LatinX perspectives in media. You can find me. I am still on Twitter. I haven't bounced yet and on Instagram at CES and rave. And of course, on the pages of Latino rebels. All right, well, Christina Escobar, happy holidays. And we'll bring you back in the new year. See if that B plus turns into an a or even an a plus. So thanks for being on Latino rebels. Thank you so much for having me. So this goes to all the people that think that all I do is complain about representation. Because people are like, ah, you always complain. Like you never supported chose 8, 9 years ago. And I'm like, yeah, because the shows weren't good. Guess what? We're starting to see really strong shows. Really good shows that are breaking the mold, and guess what? There's a market for them, an audience is showing up. Wow, what a concept. It's not that complicated people. So I will agree with Christina's B plus, people know me, I'm a tough grader. I'm gonna say C plus B maybe be minus. I'll give you a B, I'll give you a B good solid B come on. So keep doing what y'all are doing. We're here to support any way we can. We support the good shit. As they say, I don't know where they say that, but that's what I say. Anyway, if you like what you heard, rate and review us, share this podcast, tweet at me who little 77 tweeted Oscar Fernández our producer at Latino media collective, connect with our editorial director Fernanda Santos. And yeah, and catch up with Christina's work. She's doing fabulous work, not only for Latino rebels, but for what she does outside of rebels. And yeah, we'll be back next week. With another show, and like we always do, we always close that with la plebe man.

"And wondering. Quite honestly, I wish I could say more about the season, but I'm kind of purposefully waiting to binge it all at once. I really did enjoy the first season, but that's also how I watched it because it doesn't have a hugely compelling specific plot and it's more kind of like sit in this weirdness for a while. That's the kind of show I want to binge. But I do love Jennifer Coolidge and Aubrey Plaza. So I'm looking forward to it. But I haven't watched it yet. So you're into it. You're into the idea of it, even if you haven't watched it yet. I will say, I've been watching. I've watched both episodes that are out right now. Okay. I'm not that into it. Yeah. And I hate to admit it because I love Mike white and I loved season one. But it's just really hard to create that kind of moment. I think what the first white lotus season had going for it was that it came in this moment of like a lockdown because there was a new variant. So all of a sudden we were back home with nothing to do, so we all watched it together. I don't feel that communal aspect with a view in it this time because we're gone. I can tell, yeah. And then besides that, they're trying to recreate season one plot wise without doing season one. So they're at a luxury resort again, but it's in Italy, not Hawaii. Jennifer Coolidge is still in the cast, but everyone else is new. There are two outspoken, pretty young women on the show, only this time they aren't American teenagers, their Italian prostitutes. Okay. And it's just like the plug and play of it all. The plug and play of it all. It's like, that's a recipe for not living up to excellent. Exactly. Plug and play works for comfort food, but not for when you actually want something to live up to high expectations. Yeah. Even the theme song, daisy. We were just talking about so they've moved from Hawaii to Italy. But they kept

"Thank you, Jason. Seriously. Sam. Tell us what's making you happy. It still making me happy about a month in, but it has been just about a month since Beyoncé's album renaissance has been released. And I can't stop playing it. I can't stop playing it. And neither can anybody else. There's this wonderful video that Kevin Bacon. Yes, do you have bacon posted on social platforms a few days ago? He's performing an acoustic rendition of Beyoncé's heated from the new album. With his baby goats all around him. I got a fair for my girl. And it's amazing. And you realize watching Kevin Bacon pay homage to Beyoncé that this album has truly penetrated the zeitgeist. And it is a testament to Beyoncé's wisdom and power, some 20 years into her career that she still has this chokehold on us. I'm obsessed. Beyoncé, I love you. It is your year, your renaissance. Yes. I almost made that my happy, but I was like, yeah, you know what? That's so obvious. But I didn't think I could. I would have done it. We can definitely still dancing to it all the time and thinking about how amazing it is. Yeah. Well, I am never going to turn down an opportunity to talk about Beyoncé. So, Sam, that was Beyoncé, renaissance, making all of us happy still, of course. What's making me happy this week? Well, it's actually something that I saw months ago at Sundance, and it's finally come out. It was one of the movies that really stuck with me when I saw it there. And it's Emily the criminal, which stars the wonderful, amazing, weird, great Aubrey Plaza. And it's this very taut thriller slash action movie where she's playing this woman who's true to my soul, tens of thousands of dollars in debt, student debt, and she is struggling to find a well paying job because of a past criminal conviction. And so she finds herself connected to this credit card fraud ring, and then everything goes wrong. I just think it's really sharp. It's got all of the political current commentary going on here. She's giving this fantastic performance of a person who is both in over their head, but it's just so desperate, and it is trying to do what she can to just survive. And it's just really fun and thoughtful and it also has some great performances from Gina gershon and Theo Rossi. I highly recommend it. It's playing in theaters now, but if you're still a little iffy on going to the theaters or it doesn't have any plan near you, just note it for next time for later when it reaches VOD because I definitely think it's really, really fun. Also, it is 90 minutes and I love a 90 minute movie. Same year. Yes. So that is Emily the criminal, and that is what's making me happy this week.

"Movie had its virtual premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, and is now in theaters, our film critic Justin Chang has this review. For a while now, it seemed as if there's no role to absurd or outrageous for Aubrey Plaza to play. In Instagram stalker and Ingrid goes west, a naughty nun in the little hours, a flesh eating zombie in life after Beth. The character she plays in Emily the criminal. An art school dropout who masters the art of credit card fraud. Sounds almost low key by comparison. But if this is one of Plaza's more straightforward, dramatic performances. Absent her usual deadpan comic touches. It's also one of her strongest. She holds a set nearly every moment of this engrossing Los Angeles noir. About a woman whose luck ran out long ago and who decides to seize control of her life and livelihood. Emily is technically already a criminal when we meet her. She has an aggravated assault conviction on her record. That's made it hard for her to find steady work. Let alone pay off her $70,000 in student loans. She barely gets by, making food deliveries, and sharing a crowded LA apartment with two roommates. Plaza plays the character with an outsider's toughness. Emily grew up in New Jersey, and we can hear it in her accent. But also the shrewdness of someone who knows when to fight back and when to go with the flow. That talent suits her well, when a lucrative but illegal opportunity comes her way. Her task is to buy some pricey electronic equipment using a phony credit card. Then slip out before the theft is detected. The merchandise gets picked up and resold, and Emily gets paid $200. Not bad for an hour's work. It's supposed to be just a one time thing. But Emily is soon hooked and coming back for more. The man who oversees this operation and takes her under his wing is Yusuf. A Lebanese immigrant, played by the charismatic Theo Rossi. From shows like Sons of Anarchy and Luke cage. Yusuf realizes that Emily makes a pretty good crook. Partly because few people suspect her of being one. The movie tacitly acknowledges the racist and sexist assumptions that would give a white woman an advantage. In this line of work. But it also keeps us into Emily's feelings of fear, anxiety, and exhilaration. As she starts taking on bigger, higher stakes jobs. Soon she's got her own little racket, printing the credit cards and arranging the sales herself. In this scene, she meets with a customer in a parking lot who tries to rip her off. He's played by the late Richard Carlo flanagan, who died last October after shooting this role. So it's 600. 6. No, it's three, three hundred. No, 600. I said, three online.

"Actor Aubrey Plaza has a knack for playing brooding characters with deadpan comedy, like her big breakout role April in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation. I think I may have found a project I'd actually enjoy doing. Helping these cats and dogs. They should be rewarded for not being people. I hate people. Her newest film though is all brooding and no comedy. It's called Emily the criminal, and Aubrey Plaza plays Emily, and art school dropout who turns to credit card fraud. Aubrey Plaza welcome. Thank you for having me, Daniel. Thank you for being here. Who is Emily? She's a very compelling character. Talk about Emily. Okay, Emily. Is a woman from New Jersey who finds herself in Los Angeles after attending art school and taking out all kinds of student loans, also after having a criminal record. So she finds herself in Los Angeles, kind of trying to navigate the world of trying to get a job as someone with a criminal record and someone that's drowning in debt. And having a really hard time. And she gets tipped off by a coworker about a very, very kind of small petty crime operation involving credit card fraud. What drew you to her character when you read the script? Well, first of all, the script is an awesome read. I love the character because she is an unapologetic anti hero, which is a protagonist that we don't get to see females play that much in films. We see a lot of male antiheroes and I love how flawed she is and I love the grind that she's in and how she the movie starts off and she's already had enough. There's this great moment in the film where Emily is finally being interviewed for a job at an ad agency. It's finally a legit job, she has a chance at it and then she realizes it's not quite what she expected. It's actually an unpaid internship. You do realize this is a very competitive position. Yeah, sure. I understand that. What I don't understand is how you feel so comfortable asking someone to work without pay. You know, when I was your age, they told me all I could be was the secretary. Okay, but secretaries get paid. That's not the point. Well, when you were my age, you have $60,000 of debt. How about this when I was your age? I was the only woman in a room full of men. Because you had a job. Talk to me about that scene. She doesn't let anyone push her around. What is it about that moment that speaks to you? Okay, well, this scene in the film is one of the reasons why I wanted to do this movie because it's such a great scene. It's so nuanced. There's so many left turns that you don't expect. And it's kind of in the middle of the film and it's a real turning point for her character because she's confronted by this businesswoman this boss, she can see herself in this woman and she can see that this woman has played the game and made it up the corporate ladder and has found herself in a powerful position and I think it's just for me it's cathartic to watch someone actually ask the questions and air out their frustrations that we all have about how insane it is that so many people coming out of college are just so overqualified and so underpaid and it's just so hard to navigate this economy and this broken system that we have found ourselves in. I mean, it seems like there's a message that can appeal to a young generation today. People in their 20s after college trying to get a job in the thing that they studied in the thing that they love, but they're saddled with student debt. Do you have friends who have faced that? Is that something that resonates with you? Yes, absolutely. I mean, the writer director John Patton Ford, I mean, he's writing from his own personal experience and yeah, I mean, I went to film school, so, you know, so many of my friends are in that position and yeah, I mean, it's an entire generation. Young people that are in that position. Yeah. You know, a lot of the characters you portray tell me if I'm right are grounded in this kind of subdued rage. Across a lot of the film and TV that you've done, sometimes there's comedy there, sometimes there's not like in this film. Most of the time there is comedy. Where does that come from you? Subdued rage. You know, that's something that I'm going to have talked to my therapist about in an hour. I'm going to write that down. I think definitely there are times when my characters have subdued rage for sure. I wonder if it's a different feeling that's being subdued. Something is being subdued. I don't know. I think that I'm drawn to characters that have a real high stakes need and want in the film. And I think most of the stories that I end up finding myself in, it's about a character trying to get their power back. And I think, you know, for me to access that feeling and that drive and be able to kind of try out how character would attempt to do that, I think that it does, yeah, you need to have an underlying rage or whatever you want to call it. Maybe it's more like self indignation or just that feeling of unfairness in the world. Yeah, I mean, I don't know. I feel misunderstood. I really relate to that feeling. And I think a lot of the characters that I play are misunderstood and they want to be loved or they want to be understood or they want to not have people walk all over them. I relate to them. A lot of high stakes scenes, we see in this movie involving you, your character, Emily, going into stores with a fake credit card or a credit card where the stolen number, trying to buy a TV,

"Oh, yeah, I think it's fair to say that Paul may have more influence on Christianity than Jesus. Yeah, John Shelby spawn would famously say we shouldn't call it Christianity. We should call it Paul ism. Yeah. So Paul from the letters that we have of his and by the way, this will be another discussion, but he probably only wrote about 7 of the 13 books that are attributed to him. But he, like, Paul couldn't have written a gospel. He didn't know enough about Jesus life to actually put it down as a gospel. So with this whole issue of who wrote the thing, the reason though that they're called Matthew Mark Luke and John, my understanding is because the Matthew version is, well, this is how Matthew told it and the Mark version is, well, this is how Mark told it. Is that? We don't even have that clearly. True. Okay. Yeah, but that's purely something. Okay, that's a guess. There was a community around that person. But yeah, I mean, it's a reasonable guess. For sure. Okay. So we did it. Thank you for listening to our podcast. Yeah, it's over. That was fun. Oh, let's actually talk about Jesus birth. All right, so we have just these two gospels, Matthew and Luke that give us a little bit of intro before we get to John the Baptist, where we get to meet Jesus at his birth. This might be a good point to ask Carrie to recount her recollection of how the birth went down. No shit, okay. How the birth went down by curry puppy, not counting Mary getting pregnant. You can count that. Okay, all right. I feel like we're settling into drunk history. Oh yeah, totally. This would be fun to make the film version of what carries describing. Hell, yeah. And too bad we didn't give you alcohol. Yeah, someone can animate this if they wish. So, Mary's hanging out and she is so devoted. She's such a foul person. She prays all the time. She loves God. She is a match. Okay. God's like, this is the lady I want to be the mommy to my my baby mama. This is who I want to be my baby. I'm already seeing Aubrey Plaza playing her. Okay. Okay, so God comes God in spirit form. He doesn't turn into a man. He just somehow in spirit forms comes down and has sex with Mary and impregnates her. Okay, then people are like, well, hang on, you said you were a Virgil. And she's like, yes, I am. Let me think on my feet really quick here. What happened was God came and as you know, I'm so devout, so this had to be what happened. God. God came and came. And I'm pregnant. What can you do? And everyone's like, I don't know that I buy that. And then Joseph is like, I buy it. And I'm your boyfriend, as you know. Joseph Joseph is like, I'm gonna take this details coming to me from nowhere. I don't know if this is true. I think Joseph is like, I'm gonna take you to the edge of town and marry you. I don't know what that is, but okay, something telling me that's right, so I'm gonna go with it. Okay, so I'm gonna take you to the edge of town and marry you. And she's like, right on dude. So when I'm picture easy puts her on a doggy, I don't know if it's from the Bible or if that's from a million cartoons, but okay, he puts her on a donkey. Trot, edge of town. Okay. They presumably get married. I don't think that's even part of the story, but okay, so now they're in the wrong place, though. They're in Nazareth. When I say they're in the wrong place, I mean, because as we all know, Jesus needs to go get born in Bethlehem because that's what all of the scriptures that predate him say. Okay. But in this real world of this happening, Joseph gets a letter. He gets a letter from a letter, I like it from the king. Okay. Whose name I think is Herod? Okay. Unless that's a king from the Old Testament, in which case, fuck me, I don't know. Okay, but he gets a letter from which now I think about how are they sending a million of these letters. But anyway, okay, somehow he finds out that the king is like, hey, I'm a tyrant. That's the first, that's the first line of the letter. Hey, I'm a tyrant. I need to know how many of everyone there are. I'm calling it a census. I need to know the shape of things around here, okay? But here's something weird about me. I refuse to take any of the census data seriously unless everybody goes back to the town where they were born. And that's where we're gonna do the census. And I guess Joseph is like so devoted to his civil duties that he's like, you got it, dude. And then, okay, is this me combining it with the Old Testament? I wanna say also that king Herod wants to kill everybody's first one. That feels like they can't go here. It's like go back to your hometown and I'll kill you. That can't be right. No, but no one would follow. So, okay, so I think that might have some, I think that's all testament. Okay, so. Okay. So Joseph, he's at the edge of the city and Nazareth. He's like, oh, okay. I'm sorry, Mary. I know that you're pregnant. And this is the worst possible time I could suddenly be really into voting shit, but I need to go back to pat lam and Mary, you know, she's so sweet. So they get on two donkeys, Bon donkey, and they start going back and I picture it being very sandy. Okay, la la part way through their nighttime. I'm so tired. You're pregnant. Let's stop at a hotel. And she's like, oh, thank you. Okay. So they go to what I guess is the only hotel between Nazareth and Bethlehem and they're like knock knock. Hi, I'm Joseph. This is my wife. We just got married. Congratulations. Outside of town. Thank you so much. This is our honeymoon. I'm the worst husband ever. Can we stay here? And they're like, no vacancy. There is no room in the end. That's a line you hear a lot. There's no room in the inn. Then just as like fudge. Okay, it's fine. So he finds a barn. And he goes to the farm? I feel like it might be making up a farmer. I'm just gonna say that straight up. But I feel like this part must happen. They go to the farmer and they're like, can we stay in your bar? You're making a face like there's no farmer. Oh, I feel completely neutral here. Okay, so I think I'm confining this with an episode of I love Lucy. Okay. Okay, there's no. Is there a farmer? I think there's no farmer. I think they just find a barn. I'm trying to really tell you without just having fun with my mistakes. But either there's a farmer or there's no farmer. Okay, they're like, we're gonna stay in this barn. This empty barn, it's so cold, but we have to stop..

"So and then the queen who. Thanks to ripley now has a human reproductive system just described as a gift that the guy has been trying to train. The aliens dislike her gifts to her. Was the human reproductive system. Which the movie does subvert. Because the alien is so obviously in agony. Which i like this movie. That is so obsessed with this one woman's maternity this movie at least is this disgusting like human. Reproduction is disgusting. As opposed to the other movies that eggs bad human human maybe good you be mother and aliens riding around with in agony here. You're just like why is everything. So horny and painful seeming in this one. Equal parts horny and pain. Okay so the queen has now has a human reproductive system and then gives birth to this half alien half like it has a human skull face also meows like a cat. And so that's ripley's grand child and the trainer guy after watching ripley. I mean if anything play the role of father in this relationship then he says look he thinks you're the mother which i think is really funny and more critique of men viewing the thing rather than like actually making ripley be the mother or the mother is like well. No it destroyed. its mother. thinks ripley is. it's god midst. it's really anyway maybe. We're getting into it for the plot. I didn't click for me like why are you talking about. She's obviously not the mother. You didn't watch the whole birth and sex scene coon. He's really chilling in this cuckoo. He's sons. I know there's actors photo looks exactly like a picture of buster keaton like costume. That actor is Brad dorothy who played worm tongue in lord of the rings as well as he is a major character in one flew over the cuckoo's nest. So okay he's got range anyway. Okay so there's all the weird like horny. Incest jewel cuddling once. You forgot his most important crack. Brad dora is the voice of chuckie. Why god dora has appeared in a number of horror films most notably as the voice of chuckie in the whole child's play franchise he's cannon chucky. I also think he as him like as an actor like not. Just him voice acting chucky but i think he's also in the chucky movies as a different character as well but i might be completely missed remembering no. I think you're right. Charles lee ray. Who i think is like the serial killer who's trapped inside of or charley. Yeah he's like one. Of the bad guys in chucky and also the real bad guy which is which is i watched shuki for the first time last year and i was like this is pretty good i liked it kinda holds up. Yeah i was like check. Yeah and then. I watch aubrey plaza chucky. And it wasn't that bad. It wasn't good as original chucky but you know maybe we'll i. I don't know if we have anything to say about chucky on this particular show but it was fun. Sure sure so anyways. Chuck us in the movie. Schalke's in the movie he dies. There's been all this horny in sexual cuddling. And then ripley runs away and heads toward the buddy ship but the weird alien follows her and gets onto the ship as well and ripley and such a revealed though. Oh my goodness trying to close the door and then the baby alien helps like oh baby alien. Good or bad. That scene i the when kilo killing. I watch this together. The first time And i was like. Maybe i just haven't been paying close enough attention because i feel like this whole dramatic cutting back and forth feels very bizarre unearned but then i watched it a second time. I'm like no. It's still feels that way where it's like something about the editing in the scene where it just keeps cutting to sigourney weaver for a little bit too long where she's who come back like terrifying like sucked through a whole bad cgi. I loved it. I loved that scene right so confusing. Because what's about to happen. Is that ripley in. Call have to deal with the alien. Who's gotten on board the betty and ripley flings her acid blood onto a window and it creates this whole and then the weird cat human alien get sucked out of the hole into space in. What is one of the most disgusting like body horror things. I've ever seen take time in the movie really milk for a long time. But not before ripley. Kind of makes out with the alien aka her grandchild. Cottle's it's like horny nuzzling. Yeah it's very it's very charged. Yes and then. The movie ends with ripley in call arriving on earth. And they're like wow it's nice the end so let's take another break and then we'll come back to discuss.

"Funny. We're like so just wildly creative experienced nick. It was my first movie really done little tiny rolled by that time in inventing the abbots an enigma. Nick nick was like so encouraging me and he was just like yeah. You know just go like do that you know. And and so. I just felt totally emboldened by him and in john like you know the rest of the movie was one of those movies so big and there's so much going on it. Nobody's paying attention to what the acting like. You know that's happening off in some kind of corner and it's not a delight you know. The daily started coming back. It'd be realized that. I'm just doing wack catholic there before that their music guy with the using the quarter was waving john travolta but i i started getting people coming up to me on the sad from the crew dp. I think and i don't know people in your department heads saying like. Hey i saw the dailies. I i like what you're doing there you like like i'm good. I'm doing innocent. So that was that was a very Great i first first. Experience will have to set aside another three hours for a another podcast. Talk more detailed. Look because i feel like that's the tip of the iceberg of eight Faceoff sticker on indicate stories which i can always dine out on One thing i wanna get you before. I run out of time with you because i have been asking. Folks were about their comfort movies especially in this last year when we need some great one that shopping. We has not come up yet. i don't know i. This is a stupid question to even ask why. This is a competent movie. But tell me why you step brothers integral comfortable for you. I guess well it's big. It's become a family thing My brother and my son. I just love it so much that we just just like. We quoted all day long to each other in text messages. Might be some little pictures and we. We just repeat the same line through each other over and over again. It's just like we just like crack each other up even liked the same lines that we said teaching one hundred times. I don't know man. It's just so brilliant. And and like i think maybe the best performance in the whole movie is adam scott will farrell and john c reilly or just such geniuses in like every movie that they do in every i mean. We'll mara's like i think all of his movies are my comfort movies but i but But adams scott is like the special sauce in a just like could sit into the stratosphere and from the minute he appears on screen like stinging Sweet child of mine or whatever with his family. This he's just like he's on fire he he like had tapped into somebody. That was just so brilliant. Enact character has been kind of recreated in other movies and other pending carnations. So many times you'll just never be as good as the way that he doesn't Just you know what's fun and you know you know adamant all i've talked to him on this podcast and and other times. He's talked about that film like being so out of his element and being like. I am not equipped to do this and to see what am of it even through the fear and feeling like you didn't belong is makes it all the more remarkable. That's so funny. Like he just seems so completely there. I mean i know that feeling. Like i just. Interestingly after this movie the last two three things have done. Have all been like ferry real comic roles and i've done common grows at times in my career in my career but usually in in more dramatic films and after doing the art of self-defensive few years ago Fantastic well that was like my first like out now. Like comedy film. And then just you know nia jesse eisenberg and i started getting offered like just comment comedies. After that and and so my role david russell movie and then and then the thing i did after that was like with all those guys like you know allison brie aubrey plaza. Armagh senate and molly shannon. Tim height occur. Zach woods a whole long list of length. Sort of you. See the nour's yeah. Yeah totally and it's amazing. How separate the two worlds are like those guys. All each other and they've all worked together a million times. And i now feel like i've worked with like everybody but it turns out it's only in this like one side of the of the movie business and i was like dropped into their midst on this film and i felt like the way adams describing like i felt like totally into it was almost like they were like wanting to come in touch. My hair needed. See him i was real and it was such a such a just so finally i would just sit around like i. Yeah just like it was as if i was stoned when i wasn't stoned because splits a greeting lack of people just the whole time for just being funny all the time right and it's so unlike a all films out of big on where you know. I don't know you know. People are sort of just sitting around complaining or would to be fair. Some of those performers are very. I mean they aubrey plaza. I mean i've known for a decade. And i still don't even know if she's like giving me shit or being normal or what's coming out of her mouth and raise that it's like a total whack job in the best possible way. Percents amazing mentioned david a russell who you've of course worked on worked with before you collaborate again with him on this new film. That has another insane bananas caps. And all i don't know about it like urge in this movie your career is over. Yeah between attock as new one right the one in everybody s one it casts all hollywood so so you say that is what this one's pretty comedic. I mean you click with david. David's obviously again talking about a guy on his own wavelength like a very unique. Yes analogy to work with. Did you click with him. Immediately is at a different environment on this new one versus american hustle will. Can you say about working with david. Well he's the only directors ever cast me twice chrissy. Yeah this is. This is the first time that's ever happened. I so working with him is just completely unlike any other experience. It's totally feels totally out of control. you have to kind of give yourself over to him in a way. That is really terrifying. Because you can't like. I mean the way you prepared for. His movies is all with character work. So it's all it's all about developing behavior and just being really specific about who you're playing and how they talk and how they are physically and if you really Latch onto that in a very detailed way. Then you just like filter through his dial up. I mean you don't ever say anything that's in the script so while he's written script in the scripture roy is really excellent but What you say on a day comes out of like he just. He tucks himself in next to. The camera has like a little monitor and Just starts like interacting with you during the takes while the camera's rolling and he becomes kind of part of the scene like you'll be seen with other people but he's he's taught he talks almost like i. I like it into like glenn gould. I don't know if you've ever listened to glenn gould recordings. He was famous pianist to who famously recorded bach You know the brandenburg concertos or whatever and he used to like seeing the notes as he was playing them like vocally out loud and so if you listened to recordings of 'em like you hear i'm going to read rightfully you know david light is he's interacting with you As kind of directing the scenes almost while the cameras roy. So he's actually like yelling dialogue for you to say. Wow and you may repeat lines a whole bunch of times..

And i remember they had a hoover vacuum commercial.

That was not intended in now at this digital ai dubbing or or even artificial actors from from your you wanna new favorite humphrey bogart movie. We can do that. So here's the thing they can do. It's not just actors. We know it can. It can a composite of. I don't know four or five of the most famous beautiful actors or actresses they've ever seen. We've ever been on screen and compile brand new actor. Have you ever seen similar one or simone. I don't think so it was now pacino movie where he creates a superstar digital superstars. Maybe i did.

"Is not a tonal shift as much but just kind of plot shifted that occurs in the last third of this movie that made it. It was like way high on my list that brought it down a little. But i still think overall is really good and i can't wait to see what he does next year that it worked for me that kind of plot shift but i wanted to bring up. You're talking about kind of these character tropes That are reversed right like like dylan. Glue like so they hook up and you know. Obviously that's what it's building two and then you you know a lot of the time we see the guy jus just a hookup like i'm going to move on with my life and girl becomes attached and then this way it's the complete opposite and she's like dude. Move on and everything like this. You know so shout out to my boy jinadu comic. I work with in. La who is in. This movie does a good job in it so nice. Is he the terrible roommate who tries to know. He's the guy who he keeps trying to like. Get into the house. The basketball house. He's like the freshmen. And they keep like just tormenting him over you know it's not act cooper raves best moment as a as a person on there and then he gets. He chases him for blocks at a time. So yeah oh the door doorman party. Yeah okay cool cool. that's awesome. Well i'll go onto my number nine. She's a movie. I know a lot of people didn't like but i loved and that is black. Bear from director lawrence. Michael levine starts out as this increasingly just tense. Night as this writer goes to a lake cows airbnb type place and Starts getting to know the couple who lived there that she's going to be staying with for the weekend while she works on her next film and then things just go in a completely different direction from the middle section of the film and if this movie had just kept that first half going for the whole time this would probably be my number one. That's how much. I just absolutely loved everything going on between aubrey plaza christopher abbott and surrogate done and that whole opening. I just think they're all just so just amazing. I think it's fascinating watching them. Just get more increasingly and increasingly just a spiraling as it continues but then there's speaking of tonal shifts just like a complete shift in what the whole second half of the movie is and i still really like where it goes. I think it's really interesting. It's it's one of those movies like a mother or something like that where you could totally picture people just walking out of the theater. If this was something we were watching in the theater because it's just like what the hell am. I watching kind of movie. But i had so much fun with it and it's darkly comic is A big huge performance from aubrey plaza. That's not really something we've ever gotten to see from her. At least not. In this way..

'Happiest Season' Makes the Yuletide Gay

"Actually got kind of Ah, new wrinkle in terms of Christmas films with happiest season, which is basically Hannibal Hallmark Christmas movie style. Look at a relationship between two lesbians in Love. Who go, Tonto. The family of one of the women. And obviously, mom and dad don't know about their daughter's Proclivities. And, you know, I guess hilarity ensues, but it zoom in here or is it a good nature? Romcom ish kind of thing, Or is it home isn't a hallmark E Christmassy. What is it? Yeah, I would say, you know if you ever said to yourself, where are the corny Hallmark Channel style movies about same sex couples at Christmas? This? Well, here's your answer. Happiest season is actually made the Elsa cut above most of those films because you have good actors involved here. Kristen Stewart that's right from the Twilight franchise and a few better films plays one of the young women and Mackenzie Davis, who some people will recognize as the android heroin from the recent Terminator movie. They're the two women and they're going to spend Christmas With the parents played by Victor Garber and Mary Steenburgen. They didn't stand in terms of the cast. You get Daniel Levy of that very popular Emmy winning a sitcom that has Creek in its name and Aubrey Plaza on the gas tire. It's a good cast and obviously You know you're gonna have some meat, cute stuff going on and some deception and what have you, but But truly, it follows the standard formula for these movies, except it's a couple of women in love. And of course, they've got to, you know, kind of keep the secret until everything is revealed and get a basically it generates some laughs and real emotional tension and, wow, moments it.

'Parks And Recreation' Cast Educates Wisconsin Voters On How To Vote By Mail

"Was a beloved sitcom about local government and small D democracy and in that spirit cast members got together last week to give Wisconsin voters a virtual education about voting on behalf of the state's Democratic Party. Two of the show's main actors Aubrey Plaza and Adam Scott, were the elections experts in a few moments we are gonna bring out everyone from our caste to discuss what fans of the show are all dying to hear about. Indepth minute details of Wisconsin absentee voting information right. That's right. Plaza and Scott take through the ways people can mess up when absentee voting like uploading a selfie instead of a photo I deep to request a ballot. Getting mail ballots right is a big issue More than 23,000 mail in ballots were rejected in Wisconsin in April, slightly more than Trump's margin of victory here in 2016. And young people and voters of color see their ballots rejected at higher rates. Amy Poehler, who plays Leslie Knope, the show's protagonist, had a creative way to remind voters they need to get their ballots witnessed. I'm excited about all of us beating each other's witness, that's going to be fun, and I think that's going to be a big ask, I think, and I don't want to like Try to create a meet cute, but I better be some people that get married after their mother's witnesses for these absentee ballots. Tens of thousands of people tuned in to the event, which also doubled as a fund raiser. Well, it was a new way to educate voters here in this closely divided state. The advice is consistent with what Democrats have been telling voters ever since Last month's convention make a plan to vote. Make a back up plan to vote and then make a third plan. How you're gonna vote. Chelsea Cross runs the Democratic congressional campaign. She says Voters should treat October 20th his election day this year, not November 3rd. So they have plenty of time. We don't want them to get a mail in ballot. Fill it out. Haven't be wrong and have that vote not be counted. All this comes as President. Trump has repeatedly made false claims about the security of voting by mail. Cuts to the Postal Service have raised voters concerns about how to safely cast their ballots. Election officials worry that with everything about voting becoming so polarized this year, voters may not always get accurate information.
