Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?

"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with. This is going to do you. I don't know if i can sit through

Commemoration of 'Blade Runner'

"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn nearly four decades ago. The Ridley Scott Film Blade runner was released used. The movie is set in Los Angeles in November two thousand nineteen and to commemorate the date micro the arts and entertainment editor at our website site. Elliot's put together an oral history of the nineteen eighty two film. I spoke with Mike about the physical production of the movie and why it's nighttime setting was integral to its filming. Mike began by briefly. recapping the movie. You know it's a fascinating story. A set in twenty one thousand nine Los Angeles the Far Future. Sure and they're trying to hunt down. androids have gone bad. Basically now making blade runner was not an easy process. And if you notice anything about bladerunner owner it's almost always at night. So why is the nighttime look of blade runner central to the story when the big reasons was because they shot and most of it on the back. Lot Of Warner Brothers you know. They had looked at scouting in Chicago and New York. And we're talking about maybe shooting in Hong Kong or Mexico City. Whatever the cities they had in mind but I ended up just because of cost now working outs and so they said we're gonNA shoot this on the back? Lot and Ridley Scott's big idea was well we make night you know you never know what's beyond the edges of this. This shot you especially. They also add that filter of rain in every scene. So that sorta covered up things and you could imagine a bigger world out there than just a few streets on a back lot doc. I WANNA play a clip from Sydney mead. Who is the visual futurist for the movie where he talks about the inspiration and coming up with the design of the city in the film primarily from Chicago Chicago and New York because they're grid cities and New York already had buildings? You know over one thousand feet. Well they embark stayed building and So I thought well well let's add another thousand feet or so so I had this vision of these incredible tall buildings. So he's talking about the kind of the verticality of the city. How how do they end up creating that? Because you can't really build thousand foot tall buildings you know this was before we had huge. CGI level is just models. They were doing specially the famous opening in the movie. Show these smokestacks and that's not really how future Los Angeles turned out. But they created this using small models and look. I think having having that dark shot at night look having the rain covering things up. You never really know this. The seems within and creates an amazing visual a fair and when the film is coming together there's a a lot of conversation about acid rain and pending environmental problems. Obviously the world is a much more dangerous place today owing to climate change so in terms of like the setup for the story it feels like they were really right about the degradation of the planet. And how that would affect the story that they were telling you know. They really were thinking about the environment. It was a different problem though because acid rain. You know it's something that doesn't get talked about in the same way because that isn't the issue we're facing now. We just found ourselves with many any other environmental problems over the years But the talking to the screenwriter Hampton. fancher the thing that really drove him in writing the screenplay was concerned about the environment he really wanted to focus on that That's the reason why you have. That constant rain throughout the film blade runner became very iconic part of that film and It sort of gives a little bit of weight to what you're seeing in this sort of crazy science fiction film. We're talking with Mike Rowe about blade runner and its depiction of Los Angeles in two thousand. Nineteen it's fair to say that the finishing of the movie did not go smoothly. In fact Ridley Scott. The director lost the film and Harrison. Ford was called back back to do what we you and I can agree with a terrible narrations so what happened and why Harrison Ford so bad in the narration and that he gives over the movie you know they were already running over budgets from making the sets on the back lot Su Trying to create this big imagination the Ridley Scott had the thing that really really send them over. The edge was there is potentially going to be a director strike from the directors guild. It never ended up happening but they have the shoot two weeks film in one week so they had to pay overtime and shoe basically twenty four seven so instead the rights of the film. Take me from Ridley. Scott's producer. Bud York and broaden his own screenwriter to write narration. Help explain things and basically dumb it down because he didn't think audiences with get it's so Harrison Ford intentionally tanked the he tried to be as boring and stiff as possible But it didn't work because they ended up making it in the movie that made it to theaters in the movie ended up being kind of a bomb at first and yet a gets a new life. So how did blade runner get. Its Own Redo you know it was a film that really Scott. I think really cared about other people worked on it really cared about The Warner Brothers did a showing of a work print of the movie without the narration. And sort of getting people talking and then about ten years later There was a piece in the La Times were they ended up reaching now then helped spur more exciting movie. Directors cut came out without the narration. Eventually the on Blu Ray had the final cut which are released got came out. and Actually Warner Warner Brothers. Actually pay for extra special effects. Finish up never got done in the original no narration. And it's sort of created this thing that everybody is able to love without the bad parts so maybe blade runner wasn't quite right about androids. Maybe it wasn't quite right about flying cars but looking at it today. What do you think that got right about where we are today? I think they did capture the big city feel. That was going to calm. That wasn't quite there yet you know. They're looking at Asian influences. There's a lot of Japan influence it's in the original picture. you know one thing that I talked to some of the creators about that. They felt they really nailed. Was the difference between the sort of class warfare. Talking about like the Rich folks in this world had left the planets and left behind Poor people behind them and so there was love Considering that you know we have still Some some of these issues that we're facing also some of acknowledges still close I talked with Sid Mead About the androids and he was saying he really thinks that we're in maybe ten years. We're going to have androids like they had them blade runner You know he is giving examples of various robots that are already out there these robots join. Exactly look anthropomorphic. But they can. They can jump over a one meter high barrier in motion land and actually do backflips So you never know we might be right around the corner. And you don't know I could be an Android android doing this interview. I assume you are

"bladerunner" Discussed on The Director's Cut

"About the the what the business was like and how it was different for director because there's so much it's so surprising to me that there was after such success from alien and for this film to have so much so many different versions of it and the idea that they would add narration to things like that and post production and also for people who were filmmakers where people who aren't curious about it how terrible the post production processes for fulfilling a creative vision how important creative rights are you evil because if I get arrested it was it was a tough experience and because I thought point at forty four quite successful from my biz listen commercial advertising which I kept going if I went out fifty two years old company and with forty directors that's what we do and side I like bringing directors on young people on his really great thing to do and so by the time I got to Hollywood at Donald Doulos which you've got a prize at Cannes and doc harvey the Harvey Weinstein who understood the process selling more low budget movies to be fed apparently they didn't know how to handle that they paid eight hundred thousand for it made it looked at it and obviously was Kinda stultified nowhere to begin so house of my producer David Puttnam at that point we're studying my premium is on Wilshire Boulevard the opposite of down the Boulevard House my premier made haven't prints the United States I said this normally said don't think so no really so so they didn't understand it but someone saw the film it can and and there's Geico Sunday leaps I think anybody know he'd seen them in court up Lodhi which a lot he did this is wrong by the way of course and said this bloke was just on this period from you should look at him maybe it's the lineup to me and so that's how somebody thought journalists some are applicable in God knows how but I ended up reading the script and I was off and running so from that amid a film in Hollywood never be shot in the film American Hollywood Film Studio and came out and on with that success but to talk between the lines and tiptoe through the tulips the partners are pretty tough and but here we are I mean and what's Nice about the the moment we live in because there's an opportunity to see it in so many so much of it was a seeing it it at home there were few re-releases but that allows you to to have the version that you want out there finally people to see and as I said before it's really I think this is the best version of the film that I've ever seen and technically wonderful with the beautiful color treatment to it the sound the mix it really fully utilized the best I've seen it in twenty years it's ready Fanta quite remarkable oh I used to read heavy metal magazine and I know that you were you were influenced alien from some of the artists from like Moebius from there and a Giger for the the alien design and here there seems to have been a lot of reference to what what artists were doing and a sense of design that you have but then what's also interesting a real sense looking forward to what the future might hold and a lot of the themes here are themes that are being wrestled with a all the new you know you think of X. mackinaw there is you know it's the same issue of what is sentence what is consciousness what's free will what's humanity could you talk to me about what draws you to those themes and what gives you where do you draw inspiration for the vision that holds up so well after so much time that's a big question I think the blade on present several questions which is which one big broad stroke could be covered by the word apartheid creation of lack of respect for certain beings exist in or are created by us. I think that is just around corner that's actually going to happen I can't think to what extent it could be useful all should happen I don't believe driverless cars by the way so I think it's ridiculous but the that drifts along to prometheus where In Alien I had this great ash this robot in Auschwitz where the brilliant idea was on every long distance every vehicle that is that valuable you're going to have a company man on board the company man is going to be a Goddamn robot and will last out last night everybody and will be fundamentally emotionless and programmed to do one thing right so I thought let's the idea of Ash and return the the big idea of I felt alien himself with the face of the chest I think funny kind of way was done and cooked hands up who those things I think it's done in cooked the beast so so I thought I bet an Fox convinced gotta bring this this so I did the Oh film fundamentally without the beast and and to see how it was if it was a pre pre version so you see now at camp comes about finally in the very laughing last segment of shot in permits you see the baby in and how it was conceived but oddly enough the St what comes out of it is a robot is a microphone spender and so I thought we're on the road because funny enough it's reawakening the yeah but you need to change push things in a different direction I think so and it's interesting because you take all different sides of that conversation and because in this film the arguably the the androids are the most sympathetic characters the ones that express the most emotion and I really loved the intersection between sci-fi and film noir where film noir inherently has certain moral witty that the that the Private investigator that the Philip Marlowe character has to face their character that doesn't operate completely by the rules of the system like the police and facing people often the villains or charming and have a lot of justification for their motives and so it plumbs those depths of the ambiguities of morality and humanity here and soda here you're suspicious of technology and that an ash in will the way we're going politically not just here but everywhere in the world many places run by questionable people correct you pushing me UH that corruption will always out and corruption will always be there and frequently crime does pay in corruption is at the top doc often not seeing here I want to work on Monday please don't find me but it's everywhere Oh really I've actually done comedies I enjoy so part of it is you're talking about the human equation of human nature but then there's also the idea and that's been a that's been fodder for for drama for since the beginning up drama but there's an interesting thing that's happening in this moment that you're kind of a shepherding in and we're still wrestling with now which is our relationship with technology and this is only a few years after this film came out only a few years after star wars which if you talk if you listen to Joseph Cambell treats it as the first time is facing a shadow that is representing technology and the idea of the villain being half half man half machine the former Darth vader and so here you're getting an even more sophisticated mature take on it and it's interesting because now the sci-fi fan.

"bladerunner" Discussed on The Director's Cut

"This episode bringing you an exclusive conversation from the grand reopening of the DJ's Los Angel- of the reopening celebrations directors. John Farrow Michael Man and Betty Tom this each personally selected a film for the theatre's inaugural screenings the screening of Mr Fava's selection Ridley Scott's final cut of his nineteen ninety-two sci-fi drama. blade runner was followed by a discussion between the two directors about the making of this now classic film the congratulations on this theater. That sounds fantastic. Let's net wonderful green picture too that would have been embarrassing after that big introduction if it didn't look good house is pretty good name Oh yeah I I think it's benefited from the fact that he did we're discussing before the fact that he was convinced that he wasn't a replicant in the film is good as an actor because you want your actor to to buy into the reality of character buys into yeah but he would he believed he wasn't in replicant you still don't believe is so we're we're also talking about so this is the what do we call this the final cut or the what's the what's this one referred to so many versions of lost count but this is the last one and the first one that we saw in theatres had the narration and had the ending was changed much like with if you remember they happened to Terry Gilliam with Brazil they I guess they decided upbeat ending would be more commercial for both of them but to me it would I don't know how I enjoyed it as much as I as I did because now that with this version it's really like Swiss watch the way it all fits together and pays off and and I was amazed at how well it it held up it felt like it could have just been shot so that's really a testament the let's start with the is it just is intriguing to me as a just studying another filmmaker clearly there's so much about the is there's the the subtlety of the kick you know what I'm talking about his reflection in the eyes of this is pre digital so the only other time I saw is kick like that was in two thousand one with that front projection with the with the the big cat that was chasing them and that was because the retina was kicking APSO technically I'm intrigued with the idea of the reflectively of the eyes of the replicates in the owl and there's even a hint of it with Harrison Ford I wonder how much of that intentional and then also the guy is making the eyes and the and Terrell wore those big thick glasses that that was clearly a choice how did How did that all come together because it was different from what was in the source material with Philip K Dick where we're decker is not a replica so could you walk me through the creative process of how you as a filmmaker came to that was a lot of little decisions was that something you set out to do from the beginning it's like anything you know he's in one owner and if you don't watch it the end up the other Corny Donna how you got that but this was such a complex story in the Philip K Dick's story do androids dream is inordinately complex the nineteen major stories the first twenty pages so you know with Hampton fancher who's the righter who distilled the the book very complex book into a film for himself and so he'd written a very nice screenplay but very internalize and very vape semis version of how the whole thing took place in an apartment it was a love story and it was about the hunter and the the Corey had formed love and I read it and I was very taken with Hamptons writing at this particular slant of sean how we worked and thought and so we got together and they upshot wars I said love thing I love I'll do it but when a decade steps out a side oh I've got to see a world that supports that you can actually have replication replicans and it just grew exponentially so the is I figured the replicas we didn't want the word robot are humanoid journey we we got the word from replication in I'm coming out David Webb peoples daughter was working in genetics and one morning she said you know I'm working this replication replicant Seville went boom that's it again so each ripkin had to be distilled into something about them that you saw recognizable and got to be in the eyes this is very pre pre digital work but just shows the miraculous job the Doug trumbull does smoke and mirrors and what I said I need to get something in the I I don't WanNa glowing eyes I want something would come and go but we'll get your attention she said let me think about that and I think it was doug worked with that we take a glass which is a half mirror pieces of glass it's mounted in front of the camera so I've got a camera and I'm turning it the subject here your retina is the most sensitive thing on your body I can announce retina is mass the repair because you can see in the dark but in a darker magnetic fine small light and shine it in your eyes and I can photograph your retina which defy the light bounces back that stuff called three industries depending free your your retinas way better than free 'em so the mirror which is going to have one side and clear yes I saw the cameras shooting Straits you've got a small in those as we used to call an inky dinks or a pup and you just dial up the top so it starts to reflect into us at okay and see the back of the eye and so that's open so we're photographing strategy through the Lens into their bounced back remarkable and when Harrison Ford catches a little bit to that as well was that something that was a happy replicant very good and Tim O. Let's talk about you're working with you because it is a although it's a singular vision it does require a team of people and and part of I think what's fascinating about this film is is the is the visual language that was developed in some ways very classic with photography I mean some of that feels like it could be listen Cain with the shafts of light in that composition and the classicism of the German expressionism of film noir captured all of that but then there's also this really forward looking production design where the the choices that you made in from what I understand some of them were even from set pieces that you had inherited from from Francis Coppola somehow you put all of this together built things worked within the parameters that were required for for physical effects with Douglas Trumbull and and the and the effects team but yet you came up with this incredibly cohesive vision of the future that still remains coercion and and still is being referenced why in Anatomy and in film by from several generations because it's not just people like me who grew up with the film but it's people of me children's generation that are still echoing that out and I think you could draw direct line through the Matrix to what's going on today could you talk about that process and and how you came to this visual everything needs team and sometimes you get great teams and I had a mass amount of time before I made my first summer muscle does forty didn't make a film class forty my experience all came off a huge giant amount of commercials in those days that shoot one hundred questions here personally and they weren't just little tabletop things sometimes quite big salon everything now Linda about operate as operating all the commercials so my first some of the whole thing alien was born camera operator all of alien I wasn't allowed to do that coming to Hollywood because of into a different world I'd never uh filming Hollywood before and of course the unions right year Romney step in the way of not certain things to happen you can argue about that one later okay not going to go further than that but but to my experience commercials I know who's a great costume designer who's a great cameraman who's a great operator I mean like the back of my hand and so I had been very used to supremely good film units and so I- hunted down the best cameraman to meet that particular point which Jordan corn with who wasn't very well at the time you know that and I just figured he had to be the guy because with him he would bring this incredible team of guys and that I was right in that respect Charles no did the warriors and the wardrobe fantastic costume with him is systems Michael Capital things does stall listen now Larry poll you know Larry Larry around here but Larry had this unfortunate task fundamentally designer I was trained as a designer and now was before it became director for Larry sandwiched between me and said Mead and I've tracked through his books on Sid comes in who's assist in around I believe so given talks recently could you talk a lot about Sydney 'cause he's a he's an interesting puzzle here because he's a few really future just an andrew mostly vehicles but but then it became so much more when he would actually be asked to go and visit Scandinavia you look at the next two or three or four years targets for the next Saab so you sit there designing solve a few months Scandinavia being very all paid the future think sit down syndrome is all future thing he's talking about what's going to happen to parking meters what's going to happen to cities into city all stuff was fascinating and what sid can do which I always thought because I'm an art school product school said GonNa sit there and tree with garage door drawings that come up like photographs and so what's it do that so then I'd draw draw and Larry was in the Middle Poor boss having to build it so okay so we then we wreck he'd Hong Kong SAR in France couldn't afford it so it's gotta be backlot so I think it was the the student changed him back on Amazon then was that one's backlog or was it Columbia was it the valley down the slope I right that's warner that'd be Warner Brothers so I walked around this a lot and we were standing there taking photographs and with with said every side click click click click it's laid out ought department said literally goes often paints over what exists to utilize the background is how evil it's really quite wonderful and you inherited the the neon from from one from the heart no is still living I could get so it's efficiency but yet using everything that you could to get the most of production value on the screen without but it doesn't look like I mean whether that's the same thing tissues in all the Corman movies but it's not quite so surprising to hear that in those films but here it feels like everything was custom made for the vision and that's a real testament to you and your and your team could you talk.

'The Goldfinch' paints dull picture from prize-winning book

"Donna tarts 2013 book the Goldfinch won a Pulitzer Prize for its story of a boy whose mother dies in bombing. It is an epic tale of grief life abandonment friendship drugs and stolen painting of a Goldfinch now the Goldfinch has been adapted into a movie starring Ansel elgort Oaks vaguely Nicole Kidman Luke Wilson Jeffrey Right in Wolf Hart and Sarah Paulson. I'm Stephen Thompson this week on pop culture happy hour from NPR. You're talking the Gold Bitch of the movie movie and the book that spawned in here with me in the studio is very hardiman. Who was the books editor for Weekend Edition. Hello Bury. It is a pleasure to have you here. Also with us is writer Katie Presley Wrestling Hello Katy Hi there and also joining us writer Chris Clinic Hello Chris. I've seen Goldfinger a hundred times. I'm so excited to talk about so I'm not going to start with you and give you a couple of minutes to regroup start with Berry. You've read the book have and you've seen the movie. Would you think think well I will say that this movie suffers from something that I think often happens when you try to maybe be just slightly to faithful full to a in terms of literary adaptation the book which is a doorstop of a book and has so many places and plot points. If you reduce it down to its plot points it becomes a very and then this and then this and then this and then this and the movie to me felt very plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot plot. Here's a lovely actor plop. PLOP PLOP PLOP plot and in their ways in which you know as you read the list of actors in it and I heard Ansel elgort oaks vaguely. I thought well that sounds like a more interesting movie because it didn't it sort of lost some of its Dickensian deal of the book because it seems to me. Maybe you had a director who was so who wanted to be. He's just so faithful to the book that he he neglected to tell the real story of the book which I think you can do and lose truly like maybe half off of the plot. which in some ways is maybe how I felt about the book? I think Donna Tart is marvelous. I am a huge secret for history fan and this is a hard one to do. You're telling this story that spans a number of years and and that involves a lot of characters being played by multiple actors unless you are Nicole Kidman your role is is split between only do a roll if she can play a forty year span in a in a characters life exactly so so this is a sprawling story so to summarize a little bit of that plot boy named Theo he he is at a museum with his mom. The museum bombed his mother dies and feel winds up taking a painting from the museum and that painting has an impact on his life as the the movie follows him through his childhood and his young adulthood so there there is a lot there's a lot of character development to pack into this story and it sort of follows the the fate of this kid and of this painting Katie. Would you think a dark secret about me as a reader is I really am not generous wis.. It's morally questionable characters so I think in order like you're supposed to be in order to be an intelligent reader your supposed to appreciate morally A. and big. US or even morally repugnant characters because they're interesting. I can't stand them. I'm a nice person right like do do it in the streets apparently able in the sheets of a book. Yes the book. Write it on a bathroom. Okay life so what made the book interesting to me was that the central question of the book is a question of moral ambiguity like a boy away who is very recently concussed has just been in a has just been the victim of a terrorist attack plucks painting out of a museum because he thinks he's supposed post to because a dying man has told him to and then as he gets older he realizes what he's done and it becomes a dark web kind of closing in in on him what he's done and the sorts of people who want in on what he's done somehow the movie didn't capture that complexity to the character of Theo. I'm very judgy of unlikeable. Characters is the pithy way of saying it that is a fundamental part of who theo is is that the way that he processes the trauma of losing his mother and being in that explosion is by getting into some really shady stuff and I think the the elgort performance manages to lose that but also doesn't gain any charisma so felt like a very flat performance to me and not performance is central to you have to care about him if you're going to care about this story. He's the one that makes you believe that. The painting is magical. He's the one that makes you believe that the object of his affection is Helen of Troy like worth all affection and that his caretaker is as benevolent as he is. There's so much magic that the book has time came to expand upon through. Theo's is the movie didn't give you so. I came out feeling Gosh. That was awfully pretty gosh. I'm glad I read that Gorgeous Book Doc. Gosh why I'm hungry. It was long. That was the last thing hunger what you came out all right. How about you Chris Yeah. I didn't quite finish the novel before I saw the movie because it is a few pages shy of eight hundred pages so it is about three times the length of a typical novel so even a two and a half hour movie movie is a very hurried very condensed adaptation of this. I think I agree with with Katie's macro critique of how the you know. The movie tells the story and loses nearly all the subtext I sort I thought I would enjoy that more because Theo is the narrator of the novel and we get a little bit of voice over from him in the film but not very much not in his his head you know living with his perceptions the way you are for every word of this again eight hundred page book. I think this movie needed a director with a more a deft hand at combining time period. This is a you know a film and novel that jumps back and forth between our Neri narrators thirteen and when he's I dunno twenty eight or thirty or something Christopher Nolan is a director who does this this really well. Sorry I know always the person defending the Chris Nolan movie in this in this corner but he might have found a way to make it even longer that's not fair. That's got dunkirk but yeah but that thing that this film attempts were were were making the something that is chronologically prior to most of what we've seen gene feel like the emotional climax of the film that is the kind of card trick that he can pull off in this director John Crouch John Crowley who made Brooklyn which I which I like very much. That's a much much much simpler story. It's linear. I don't mean to diminish her or Sarandon's performance but I mean she's not morally conflicted in the way that that answer low Gorz that that Theo is in in this movie. I think that's a great a great adaptation this just I yeah it feels hammy plotting kind of workmanlike. I think it diminishes the book doc somewhat of the same reaction one thing that I kept thinking throughout this movie was why is this a movie and not and I don't mean like why is this a movie like why does is this exist. I'm not sitting there with my arms folded but I'm thinking why isn't this and this is this is gonNA sound counterintuitive. Why isn't this an eight hour series. Why isn't this I mean. This is Amazon Studios. They could have made this as a as a long form TV project and given the filmmakers time to dry out these characters a little a bit better. This is an epic story. This is seven hundred seventy three page book. This is a two and a half hour movie and the movie somehow feels both rushed and slow oh and that's a really tough combination because they're racing through all these plot machinations and I just kept sitting there and it felt longer than two and a half hours. I just kept sitting there thinking. I don't feel like I'm getting to know these characters. I can tell we're a long way from the ending and yet at the same time at weirdly weirdly doesn't feel like anything's happening even though they're so much plot I found the experience of watching the movie to be really frustrating as much as it. It is beautifully shot. I think there are some lovely performances and then I think it's very nicely cast think oaks vaguely as young was a non he was. Aso Oh he was also in Pete's Dragon. Which is I know I've heard the name oaks vaguely before I think he's terrific. I think fin wolf hard as the OS Ukrainian best friend and that he meets when he has been transported to the horrors of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He meets this. He meets this kid. Boris played by and Woolford who has really thick accent and I'm so used to seeing fin wolf heart in the movies or in stranger things but I thought that was a strangely lovely performance really affecting performance. I liked the child actors in this a little bit more than some of the grownup performances. There are all these little components of it that I like. It's shot by Roger Deacons. WHO's an amazing cinematographer awesome. I was kind of a standard with his credit came up at the end because this is not a movie that I mean it's mostly indoors it. You know it doesn't have the kind of big visas of movies like bladerunner when she finally went his Oscar for or you know sicario or the Coen brothers movies he's made but yeah I I was surprised because it just felt like TV for me and not you know not prestige. TV necessarily kind of well. I think wow I mean I do but I do think that's part of it as it did feel like it had the tone of like a like a big little lies tight type story and partly because it enter Cole Kidman but like it felt like it should be on TV. I think that's right because the book itself self is also incredibly episodic. You have and she does this. I mean this is a very secret history a little friend kind of thing to do where she is interested in the interplay of these different worlds of being in the busy the teaming space of New York and the upper east side and then being in this wasteland of Las Vegas and then being the places you go and her books and the way that like class and police and person rub up against each other is is very important and again every idea in this movie feels very unfinished. He obviously understood that thing about class that she's talking about. He understood the thing about you know first impression and art and an in how trauma plays but everything only gets a glancing blow and had it banned you know here is the episode with Boris in Amsterdam. Here is the episode bestowed with Boris and unless Vegas. I think you would have gotten a little more of that and you know what would have been really nice as you know because the book doesn't really have a doesn't land the plane really you're really just sort of circling over a philosophy rather than a a plot ending you would have given the viewer more time to develop it on their own so I I walked out feeling sort of confused and I didn't have that feeling of you know even though I did feel the book's ending is finished I i. I still felt that I'd had an experience of all these things. There was a lot to talk about. There was a lot to think about. I did not feel this here except there was a lot to love in the apartment. I do want to shoutout Oh. My God will be but also hoagies apartment beautiful. I liked all the apartments actually the glimpses you got of the Os the apartment art that deals with his mother and the barber's so the Barbara's are the wealthy family that I take. Theo in immediately after the explosion and e barber is he's a friend of the owes a classmate they were closer as young boys than they are now but they take him in and misses Barbara's played by Nicole Kidman. Who who I gotta say has never I'm not in a coal kidman person and so I think one of the places that this movie faltered for me is it she was like a black hole and the camera just rested on her face gazing at Theo thoughtfully and I was like this is wasted time is not an idea exactly and like that so much of how she actually acts through her cheek bones those are the antenna you know you're watching them for curry action and just like the little movements at the corner of her mouth and I don't Act Shoe Willie find that very interesting. I'm cheekbone person. I like a good cheek bone but it felt felt contractual. It felt like Ms Kidman requires no fewer than fifteen minutes of close up on cheek and the character both in I will say this. This is true in the book and the Movie Opens Up Santa Clara yes in her older age. She her family encounters major tragedy that that compounds the sympathy see that she was already forming for Theo but when we're talking about these weird drops into melodrama added melodrama that was not necessary because the story sorry could be dramatic if you let it breathe a little bit more so like too much time on Kidman. She did not work for me. I did actually like her at her oldest eight in the movie. I saw all of her performances written on top of each other. I saw in your wife like a close match of the way that Hart describes the character but you don't have to do it. Exactly the way tart describes the character you can cast someone else you go a different direction. You know you can still you. An adaptation is not a straight st translation right. I do want to say one thing because if people do not want to see this movie which I would certainly understand after this conversation I will say the book itself is one if those wonderfully meandering tales that actually benefits from the time you spend reading it you know you dip into it for a new episode and the writing eating is absolutely incandescent the descriptions of the furniture the look at Las Vegas the even the descriptions of some of the emotions like the tears ears that fall out of his face that are unconnected to I mean they're they're all of these moments in the book that really stick with you and I will say I do think it is absolutely worth whatever time time you put in to this book too so I agree. I just you

Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit explores sci-fi vehicles used on screen

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by the Michigan economic Development Corporation, John Rimini, founder and CEO at airspace. Experienced technology says in Michigan revolution is in the air. Find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. To solve the scourge of the car. Maybe we have to go back back to the future from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Jack Stewart info. Molly would. The future of causes always exciting and always just around the corner. Things like self driving cars have been five years away, for I'd say about forty years now, but there are times when pure imagination is exactly what's needed when vehicles have to be as out there as possible nearly incredible. 'cause or a big part of science fiction TV shows and movies. They're often characters themselves, and someone has to make them I went to see some of the creations of writers directors and designers at a new exhibition at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles. It's called Hollywood dream machines. And there cause from Mad Max Bladerunner and the classic Star Wars amongst others. Brian Stevens is exhibition director at the museum, and he started by explaining how a car designer works with a filmmaker in the use of vehicles in Hollywood productions. There are a number of scenarios, one of, which is the need to design a car from scratch to fulfill the vision of the producers of the directors of the film, in many. Cases though. There are pre existing cars that do just that and there's no need to design a car from scratch, and when it came time to create back to the future just so happened, that this very exotic wild stainless steel bodied car existed. In fact, was very much in the public eye. Do some lawsuits at the time which which made it a perfect option for this particular use in this particular film. Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine? The way I see it if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it from style now that we are up close, I can see. There are a lot of wires zip ties parts that look almost unfinished. Yes. Which is deliberate in this case, the producers and directors of the film didn't want something polished, they wanted something that looked like it was handmade in a garage. So you worked with designers of some of these actually put this exhibit together. How important, did they say it is to be accurate as opposed to just be entertaining when the coming up with these visions of the future. I think it's a combination of both if you're projecting fifty years in the future. I think accuracy is, is going to be difficult to achieve, regardless of what you what you propose, but they certainly do want some level of realism when you start getting into science fiction films as opposed to Pierce to pure fantasy films. You do want there to be an element of science basis, you want there to be something that seems even somewhat. Ause -able about what you're predicting. So you have kit here, for example, from Knight rider from what the voice of industry thousands microprocessor K IT for easy reference. A can't. If you prefer, do you think that, that was fully autonomous long before most of us had heard of even the concept of self driving, 'cause it's a 'cause like that an inspiration to real engineers and real designers, I think there's no question that when today's designers were children, watching these television shows in these movies that they are even potentially subconsciously gaining inspiration from what they see. And that's probably part of why we see some of the technologies that are shown in these vehicles. Eventually become real Brian Stevens, taking us on a semi nostalgic semi futuristic, look at the cause of Hollywood at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles, fun facts. I learned from him in the early drafts of the back to the future. Script the time machine wasn't built into a cholera toll. It was built into refrigerator. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the movie. Quite as much. And now for some related links. Check out the exhibition website if you want some inspiration for movies have been Joan this holiday. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed some of them the Audi r s q concept from I robot made me want to watch that all over again. And I will be streaming the original Bladerunner as well as twenty four thousand nine to see that vision of Los Angeles with spinners in the dark and rainy skies in terms of making these sci-fi visions come true. The Atlantic has a great story with the headline flying cause a real and then not bad for the climate that describes the efforts to build a new type of electric flying machine that isn't a plane and isn't a helicopter but could fly building to building top skipping city traffic. And it's not just frustrated commuters who could benefit as sea levels rise coastal cities, like Miami, a going to have to go to ever greater lengths to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

"bladerunner" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast

"And I love that theaters thinking like really that. He he went on that. And it wasn't until the HBO's started running it like compulsively or Cinemax or one of them. And I would always catch it like thirty minutes in and then I would have to watch it all the way to the end. And I've I've rarely had a movie like that just grabs me and just like someone ever it's on I flipped to it. Like, I have to make myself not watch it to the end. So I knew there was something to it that I wasn't grasping. And it took me like several times seeing that movie to really understand kind of what he was going for in and current of the underlying brilliant. So that film. I don't know. Maybe that'll help him with me perfume. I have no idea. Yeah. It's possible. For me that one was actually of all movies Bladerunner where the first. Time. I thought nothing nothing really sunk in. It was like that was pretty, but I'm not really sure what was going on. And then I ended up buying it. And just kept watching it. Anyway, overtime overtime. It just started to to click. You realize there's more going on under the hood. Even even if you have to formulate some of it for yourself elites, you're getting a reaction. Yeah. I remember. I remember seeing that movie for the first time with criterion c a v laserdisc. And it was of course, just the the US. Really? No, I'm sorry. It was the international release 'cause they had those like what the two seconds of of Gordon it. That would. Yeah. Daryl Hannah flails around bit more. I think I don't remember what the difference was really. But it was not much. But it wasn't until it really wasn't until the nineties when I saw that the non v over and with the Ridley Scott version with a different ending. I was like, okay. I mean, I I appreciate it before them. But it's like, okay. This is this is this makes more sense. Now, this feels better. So this movie really for me. It's like a couple. All major pieces in the set piece with Dini is one of those. That's one of the things that I really remember a lot when I think about this film, and then the murder montage that happens later on because after he leaves Paris and ends up going to gross. There's a there's a mid- middle part by part two of the book that takes a lot longer in the book than it does in the movie, there's whole character that was omitted after he goes up into the mountains, and is away from all human sense, and his spirit grows out. He lives off of like lizards and things that it can catch and just eats whole kind of stuff. He ends up coming down from the mountain. And there's this whole sequence in there where he's found this wild, man. And there's a scientist who is talking about this whole fluid feary, and that the higher up you are in the world the worse, it is for you and model, blah, blah, blah. And it's. It just gets kind of nuts after a while. But it's a huge expansive section of that book to just the amount of time. He was out in seclusion was massive. And they cut that down to a couple of minutes movie..

Moby Psi OTG. The First Off-The-Grid, Standalone Retail Pod

"Now. I think it's a great concept. I wanted to find out more about it so book and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to Stockholm in Sweden. So we can speak weighed Hannah mazzetti, we're gonna live all about mobile Mont. So messy warm. Welcome to the show. Who can you tell the listeners a little about who you are? And what you do. Yeah. Thank you. So I'm Hannah study and. Swede who is working on stuff this store system. And we actually started something called Moby March two years back and the first stuff less and mobile store that is well it's on the market right now testing, an did I hear about Moby mall back in twenty seventeen and actually wrote an Culliver eagle is on the next web. And I remember it just reminded me of something in the foam Bladerunner, and you recently any recently released the first off the grid standalone stuff Frey retail, Paul that can be powered by solar panels. So we'll add video to the blog post companies these happy so do so at one listening can visualize exactly what to expect for Moby more. But can you just off a bit of an overview of exactly what it is the kind of problems that you're solving. Yes. Sure. So first of all, it's you can think of it like any other store is just that it stopped less, and it can be put everywhere. So. It doesn't have to be connected to the grid can be anywhere in the countryside. And we can even make it mobile, which means actually that we will solve a few issues. One of them is something that is known about amongst retailers like as the last mile issue like. It. It's not really efficient cost efficient to drive like one mile extra just deliver cheap goods, like a packet of milk. And we would solve that since our store can drive out to the countryside stand there for a whole day, and it will be the both the logistic systems and the storage place at the same time. And can also deliver goods testing off go to west though. I mean, what's the story behind Moby more? I'd look to know more about the the inspiration behind it. And how you got where you all today. Yeah. Okay. So it's a long story. But let's say that it started with both me and Tomas who's my co-founder. We actually grew up in the county side in Sweden, which you can imagine. It's a, you know, it's hard to any store, and you know, where I grew up the natives store closed down in nineteen eighty six. So if my family wanted to buy a liter of milk we needed to get into the car and drive for an hour, but even apart from the convenience of village stores so much more than a store. It's you know, it's a place where you meet your neighbors and about the news. So you could compare it to the watering holes and the dawn of humanity. You know, they are really really important like by bringing the corner store, just mall, villages, and suburbs. We bring more than convenience. We're being a place for people to meet and we bring life, and that is a vision not your speech today from a coffee shop. Shop in Stockholm, and we're gonna have people listening to our conversation all over the world. So can you share with me some of the cities where listeners of actually seen a Moby more or where they could be one coming soon? Yeah. Well, at the moment, we have five stores original Shanghai. And that is the only city that we're in at this moment. I consciously say where we'll be soon, but I can't can't say like we are in negotiations with some bigger clients. And we hope to come to Europe soon going to ask how did you go from Sweden to China? Is there anything about that relationship? You could tell me about. Yeah. We actually had something called Willis cafe a few years back which you talked about before I think, yes. And well with realize we had a really awesome team in Shanghai and had her production and Shanghai. And so on so that was just sort of a natural step since Moby Martin was originally a subsidiary of wheelies from a business point of view, if somebody all about it and decides to invest in their very own Moby Maude, he told me through the process of how they could order one for their money. And also what kind of support they would get moving forward. Okay. Yeah. Well, first of all you just order it with us. It costs twenty five thousand dollars, the Moby PSI, and basically can the flat pack or ship as it is. And you get with the whole system and the app, and once you get it, you just stuck it up you enter the the products into the into the and start selling. So it's like everything is dumb. The cloud system. It's pretty straightforward actually from the customer's point if you was to retail experience like respectful and listening. What what should they expect? If they were to go in how they would enter the the the mart and how they would purchase things. Okay. So it's imagine it's eleven pm, and you're at home, and you suddenly and desperately need a leader or milk for your white Russian. Glad you added white Russia today. I want milk eleven o'clock at night. And now, it all makes sense. A couple of times. Okay. So you open the app, and then you find the closest movie using the map and you find one fifty yards away you put on your coat and her out. And when you get there you unlock it by opening the app and sliding the phone over the door. You take your milk and cereals, maybe and then you scan them, and then you sit and it's that easy somewhere in cyberspace, your Preregister at cardis automatically charged with a cost and ten minutes later said a front of the fireplace with your what Russian one leader Quechua rhetorician.

"bladerunner" Discussed on Remso Republic

"Zo getting everything. I all right. I'm gonna warn you. Now, I refuse to have a discussion about that movie. Because I do not like what the hell's your problem? I just don't think it does the first film Justice. I'm a huge fan of the first film to the point where I really think it's a disservice. If you want if you want to have discussion about it the person to talk to you me, the person is razor fist on YouTube. But and I recommend video for those you who might be detractors who want video hating, the new Bladerunner video critical of it and Riley. So I think there are plenty of things to critique about that. It does wrong that that film. Well, we'll have to talk about that. Again, one day. I want it to off track. We only got five minutes left with that film. Okay. Okay. Jackie have the right to your wrong opinion, so opinion on you have the right? It's you're wrong opinion about the new blade runner. But you know, to to use it in context like the new blade runner. Like, everyone has their own vision of the future. Like, my vision of the future used to be something like robocops, Detroit and demolition man with Stallone. Now when people are like, what's the future gone? Be like in twenty forty eight at the right? Yeah. Forty. I never remember the year NFL so twenty forty eight like, I think of Bladerunner we'll fun fact we're in the blade runner year. Twenty nine thousand nine is the year in the first blade runner. So right now less cool than how other people in the past much thought of us. Yeah. And I think that they just pick date that's close enough. That's like, oh, this is the near future. But if I were to point to something and say, this is the future, I would say blade runner like the blade runner. That's what the world is gonna look like eventually, I genuinely believe that some point it's going to be like that just maybe less Venetian blinds. Oh, yeah. You know in the in the Star Trek universe. The last civil war and the United States was in nineteen ninety one. Man. That's the year in which Khan and the others in the space seeded episode of Star Trek, which inspired us Star Trek into darkness. They I was all nineteen Ninety-one got super nerdy, Jack.

"Actually offered your audience a holiday gift guide. Why don't you tell us some of the objects you selected and why? Well, yeah. Absolutely. I mean, a real selection of pieces in varying in in prices from Iran. Seventeen dollars right up to two thousand dollars. So for example, we have the Bjork designed lily candlesticks, which appeared in Jones apartment in madman. And then we have things like a lot of Barwa and glassware such as copper, mugs that you might find in better, call soul, a favourite losses to ever appear in the movie what we call the Bladerunner glasses these beautiful heavyweight gorgeous Italian glasses and not a paid by thin Bladerunner and Bladerunner twenty forty nine. I mean, the very tried and tested in the film furniture office is I can tell you that. There are amazing. And I was really surprised when they turned up in Bladerunner twenty forty nine and we talked to the set decorator actually about why she included them in the new in the navy and as a bit of a story behind why why they popped up his not just gratuitous referenced their first blade runner short. You. Remember that story was. Yeah. What base? Basically is the scene where Nandor Willis play by our plateau sort of lose docket into the wireless corporation and that the the glasses are here. So in the original movie there in his apartment. And then the new movie they have them in the scene as almost a way of making decade feel as comfortable as possible while they're trying to get information. I him. So that that's why they're there as a reference to his past really, but yeah. And the gift guide, there's all sorts of things we've got books such as designs on film by Kathy Whitlock, which beach will boat looking at financial and film set decoration wallpaper gorgeous wallpaper from the phantom thread. That's the one. Yes. So that appears in the dining room originally designed by William Morris, we've got pieces such as a moon bowl which has seen on. Bruce, Wayne's dining table in his modernist lakeside house in Batman v superman white three to while you can buy the official the shining rugs and carpets and Jin. Chaz from two thousand one space odyssey. So it so. Yeah. A real range of things taken from our marketplace. Let's go to the rug that you just mentioned in the shining. This was in the overlook hotel's hallway. And as I understand it from your gift guide. This is a product that you yourself have licensed is that correct? Well, we tracked down the original license because it was designed by the the very influential and amazing David Hicks in the sixties. I believe will the seventies. But although this cop it's been parodied and referenced in in so many films, and there's lots of slightly tacky, shall we say much in dice out there that you can buy with this amazing hexagonal pattern. It's the orange Brown and tech Saginaw pattern. And but we wanted to track down, you know, the the official thing if you like so we managed to find the original license holders, and they've agreed upon with us on creating carpets and rugs. And until way runners actually that carpet is we'll go film finisher of the ground in the first place. But we knew that would have been a lot of symbolism in that nothing was chosen lightly for Kubrick movie.

"Dive this week at age of fifty seven. What a lot of people. Don't know. Is this dude had a couple of different degrees? He graduated from Humboldt state university eighty four with a bachelor's degree in natural resource planning and interpretation. He was working at Orange County marine institute. He got the idea that he wanted to start doing some animation. So he went back and say, hey, you know, what I was good another degree in eighty seven. He pursued his degree in experimental animation. At the California is to arts in Valencia and he earned his masters of fine arts ninety two quite of accomplishment. I mean, the dude was very educated. You wouldn't think that watching SpongeBob squarepants? But yeah, I mean, he he had multiple degrees. And he invented SpongeBob squarepants for so. Rest in peace, Mr. hill and Berg and thank you for bringing SpongeBob squarepants to us. Everybody knows Netflix will make a TV series out of anything. Lately, they've been cancelled stuff. We're talking about that later, but they they don't make a series out of anything, and they just ordered some episodes for avatar last air bender. So they're getting more to the anime now of making those series. They just got another one man they picked up cowboy bebop, there'd be making live actually Dapitan of cabinet bebop. It says here there ordered for ten episodes straight to series live adaption, if you're not familiar with cabaret bebop is one of the more prominent enemies out there. These intergalactic bounty, hunters, basically, go around and save save your world for the right price. This could go well or this could go really really bad. Honestly, I've I've kind of liked the live actual life death note. And I liked full metal alchemist alive actions. I don't know a whole lot about Kabbay bebop. But I think they can make this work on a firefly kinda way. Can't wait to see what they do with this. They are making so many of these adaptions now, I don't have a date when this is going to be available for yet net. Flicks is go roll it out. And if they do they always do they'll be the whole ten episodes at once that you can marathon watch it, they'll probably be half hour episodes. So it shouldn't take long. You can do it in a weekend. Get your cabinet bebop fix along with the enemy if you're not familiar with it. Now's a great time to go back and wash the cowboy bebop anime and get caught up. And while we're on enemy this next one is it's it makes sense after I hear it. But I would have never thought of it beforehand dole swim and country, crunchy roll going together to make a blade runner anime. Yeah. I didn't think about, but you know, the whole Bladerunner story leads itself. Very well. The anime in my mind, this Disney the away who. Is the Bladerunner director guy. He is said they optioned. Three stories that were take place between twenty nineteen when the regional Bladerunner takes place and Bladerunner twenty four nine which is the newest movie they put out. One of these was done by Mr. Watanabe. It's Bladerunner twenty twenty two. Blue's called blackout. I watched it a little earlier. It's it's really not bad it. It was pretty good. So those three stories if you Google I'm sure you can find somewhere online this anime series, though is going to be called Bladerunner black Lotus takes place in twenty thirty two. So it's before the events of twenty forty nine you're likely to see some of the characters, you know, making appearances in this anime, which is really cool. Like, I said shoot Chiro what Nabi I'm probably butchering. The name is going to be the creative producer on this series. Guy is great with anime. Can't wait. The Bladerunner story is just I love the whole Bladerunner universe. They had said that they were going to be expanding the blade runner universe. And we haven't seen that. Until now. I mean, they did a comic book that just didn't really take off. We haven't seen any television or or animates until this one. There will be thirteen half hour episodes. They're going Erla dole swim adults rooms going to maintain the worldwide distribution rights for the English dub versions, which means in my mind means they're looking at pushing it out in other countries. Also. So, you know, the Bladerunner universe is getting ready to expand. Again, we're going to be a little more backstory since this is kind of a prequel to twenty four nine but a sequel to twenty nineteen. Kind of weird in the time line there. I believe what Nabis going to do a job with this. I can't wait to see it myself. I love all the Bladerunner stuff. So let's hope that they do this from Justice. It seems lately the trend is for them to take old

"And I just I'm still like struck continually by all of these things that are working in concert with one another in such a beautiful way. And I, you know, I completed I've seen a lot on like social media is that you know, it doesn't have the same color palette as our Gentles version, and we'll get into the spoiler thing. We can talk about that more. But there's it's very intentional. Yeah. Yeah. It uses color in a very intentional way. I think the saints. It of uses music to Lindsay was not a big fan of the. Well, I think we're going to agree with that. That's Tom York score for this, right? Which at times feels I like the instrumentals. And then he starts singing. I'm like, I why am I I don't I don't need you here right now. That's yeah. That's one of my biggest complaints just to go off a Br I agree. This movie is big and bold and beautiful and strange, and it leaves you with so much more to think about than the original so much more. It's like, you could write ten different thesis papers about this movie, and they would all be a different topic. Like, it's just there's a lot going on. I think maybe arguably too much sometimes there are certain things that maybe don't work as well for me, which we can get into later. And yeah, I agree. The score for me is just not great. It's fine and parts I think parts of it early beautiful by agree. I don't really understand the choice to have like a man singing of soothing. He's like really sort of powerful moments. So yeah, I I loved the movie I think I have made. Maybe a little bit more to complain about. Then either you're Brit, which we can get into. But it's an imperfect film. But it's it's a movie that I think I will be thinking about and trying to wrap my head around for a very long time. I actually wrote a piece for slash about that about how stepping out of the theater. I just was like, I don't even know. I think it's hard to have a first impression. I've heard other people say that also I think it's one that you kind of have to mole over a bet, it's a complicated movie. It's a long movie there is so much going on. I think justifiably you could say like if they had trimmed a little maybe it would have been tighter horror movie, but at the same time, I don't I'm not sure if it if you started trimming, some of the historical stuff would that have really created the tapestry, you know, Guadagnino is actually going for here. I it's it's really interesting. There's just so much going on. I was also thinking of Bladerunner twenty forty nine and turn on the house. That is a such a dense and rich in sort of impossible sequel. I had no hope that that movie would be any good leading up to it. And then by the time, we got it. It was such a perfect follow up to blade runner. And personally, I find it even a better film in many ways because it's a much more focused and knows what it wants to be. It has a great dialogue with your ritual. I feel like this movie has a lot of that going on to. It's definitely building on things. We saw the original movie. But then it's totally doing its own thing. I can understand the color palette complaints. I kind of had the same complaint with Bladerunner Troy forty-nine, and like just the music is very different. It's not, you know, it's not been jealous. But at the same time, I can understand why that movie sounds different. And you could definitely understand why this movie looks different because it's doing a very different thing. It's not it's not really as impressionistic as our Genta version, this feels more..

"I dunno greedy me like the like dark, no, our projector I was thinking, but I heard someone else say something about that too. Okay. Rainy looking. Yeah. I think it was trying to get that feel of being made in the past like around that time, and the contrast between that and what space look like. I thought it just made a pop even more and the best thing to the movies when he's explaining to his kids. When he's giving them the very diplomatic fucked up direct answers. Yeah, definitely. Good point that he just became numb all clear for that scene telling the kids. Another one. I mean, sometimes I feel like they just nominate people because they're in a movie with stars and it's a movie that a lot of people are going to see. Well, apparently not because box office is out doing too well, but what would you guys give all the people saying, look, our boycott did. Yeah. Wonder what were they boycotting in Bladerunner twenty forty. Nine like robots. Having babies probably go see this movie on natural babies. What would you guys give it out of ten? I probably a Cup of coffee. No, you already smashed a Keurig. Get me one boycotting that too Honey. We boycotting get that Chick-fil-A get get Chick-fil-A, stop at hobby, lobby. So out of ten kgo eight and a half, I go like, yeah, like eight point six, eight like closer to nine. So I go point seven, nine, nine, four point four. I really liked it. I thought it was amazing and we probably needed a little more Buzz Aldrin he was actually, yeah, two little boss. Well, if Disney was doing it, they give them a prequel movie. Could you imagine you how did buzz all get his name goes at NASA? It's like, who are you? I don't have a name, spas all. Are you guys wanna go to a star's born. All right. So these are stars. My god. Could have been handled more smoothly? I'll take it. Yeah, stars born. So what'd you guys think about that one? It's a movie. I'll say at the beginning that when I saw the trailer, I was like, probably never watched this in my life. I'll watch anything somebody pays for it, but it's not a movie that I wanted to pay for when I saw the trailer, but I loved it. I absolutely loved it. I loved it out one of the best. No, I loved it. You loved it say really liked it. I really liked the movie. Okay. Doing spoilers for this one too? Yeah, we'll do spoil his stars. So if you haven't seen it skip ahead to our noble, do overall thoughts and then all right, we'll put a. Yeah, I really liked to to. I can see what you're saying. Like with what use kotecki off at the wind. Shafted me, he, I loved it. He really liked it. You thought it was really good. Does it continue text. And that's the movie. It touched home on so many real life problems people starting from the bottom and addiction. I don't know, man, they've portrayed everything. Fucking perfect.

"Did you like how the story played out? Because there is a lot of mystery in it and you know, it's not like a crazy over. Your head Dupin you left and right tight movie, but there is enough mystery intrigue with the story that I liked. It is just that it takes a long time to get to that last punch drill Celts. Yeah, I think that's like maybe one of the bigger problems is that it is an interesting ending, which I liked, and I like the cold aspect of a ton, and I think could have done with more mystery to, instead of like you're saying just the nonstop like expedition fort, but I did enjoy it just took so fucking long to get to that point. But I point I'm just like, I, I just want to leave. I wanna go home. I wanna ride grab this up and get out of here. I don't care as much and I'm not as invested as the ending should be because I'm just so mentally exhausted by how long it's taken to get to this point when it doesn't feel like as far as how the narrative was playing out movie, like not a lot of time had passed, like maybe like five, six hours in the movie time on had passed, and it just took two hours to get there. Yeah. I think the worst thing about a movie sometimes is a no said this before is when you're sitting there actively wishing the movie would end even if it is like a decent movie and I felt this. With this movie. And I think I think it was. I think it detracted some from the ending because at that point I would've I would've taken anything because I was just done like you're saying Kim, Jack, but I think there probably are people who like the longer time. I mean, it gets a lot of story in there. I just feel like in terms of the medium is just a little too much. Yeah. Again, length is tough in two hours twenty. It's nowhere near the worst. Like we love blade runner twenty forty nine, and that was long. Everything felt so perfectly drawn out in necessary in that movie like nothing really stopped that movie dead in its tracks. This one did I think you said it is it the flashbacks felt like unnecessary exhibition where they could've lent more on the side of mystery and maybe in the end you have a collective flashback or don't happens in one spot to do it continuously throughout it just made a Jag it. That's what it felt like a jagged experience Bladerunner also had like what maybe like six actual named characters. That's maybe I'm under exaggerating, and I feel like it's it just it's more entertaining to be in a movie that long when there's less to keep up. Keep track with the problem. I have with game of thrones sometimes as too much shit going on. And I think some of that was here too. I mean, this is a huge casters tons of people. There's tons of parts. And it it. It's compared to blade runners. Bladerunner was a lot more deliberate and had less to follow, and you kind of enjoyed the burn..

"A couple of months ago man jason watch 'bladerunner for mike at the movies because whilst jason wasn't a huge fan of the movie i wanted to see it i felt like it was an important one to see because it has a lot of crowd neither of us were really crazy about the movie i think that we necessarily was speak for myself i don't think we necessary disliked it but it didn't sit high up in the overall ranking of mike at the movies movies john syracuse hud this and demanded that we watch the final and talk about it with him so john why are we doing this i'm not so sure i demanded it in fact that i remember fearing i remember being afraid of is your memories goes like jason other like that much and you have we are taste in movies and are so young impressionable and i was going to be one of those ones where you're like you know dumping on movie that like century but but i was pleasantly surprised that both of you seem pretty even keel to other even though neither one of you were or were big fans but you did watch a theatrical release which i think was mike's a sort of misguided notion that he wants to watch like the one that everybody saw riboside naturally scores when i was in theaters number you want to see it could not months ago i feel like the one that has all the cash shea well i guess they theatrical wanted us terms of like set designer whatever but like that this is one of the first movies where it was really important to the biggest fans of the movies that you watch a different cut like this obviously wasn't the first directors cut but it was sort of the most prominent directors cut among geeks said you know do you know movie that has a theatrical release in a director's cut as like oh yeah blade runner and of course you have to watch director's cut affleck or that was that was the really important thing to do um i think the dregs her with a tenyear anniversary of the movie or whatever but it's one of those movies that you know as a cult classic and it it was not it was.
