"Kind of got overlooked. Come Come Oscar time but an interesting choice for the service to push movie like this out worldwide especially as they lean more and more into cinema from Africa. Nattiest French but I thought it was. A great film is very similar. Kind of conversation happy's Lazaro. This is like arthouse indie cinema. That would otherwise have been released by Sony. Pictures classics or something. Like that and there would have been a three month campaign. It would play one hundred. Twelve theaters around the country would have been nominated for an Oscar and then it moves moves on. I think that I would make a bigger case for Atlantic than happy as Lazaro. I think that there is something I mean you know. Obviously the just the cinematography is very beautiful but there is something about the visual effects and the way that the central mystery is shown on screen. Right is really effective but also I think draws your attention and keeps your attention at home. There is a little bit more. There's like a literal. What's going on here as opposed to like a D metaphorical sociopolitical. What's going on here of some other movies? So this is another one that I would put a pen and if we have room we have room. I don't WanNa just cut it. I also recommend it. If you haven't seen Atlantic's it's on Netflix. You can watch it. That's the beauty of this entire situation as we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA name films. You may be having heard of before haven't thought about since they were released and if you WanNa return to them you can. Is there all in one place? How easy is that? Crip Camp Crip camp. You saw at Sundance dead. I saw it after that now. Crip camp by all accounts is the leading contender for the best documentary. Oscar at the at next year's Oscars is is a film Produced by Higher Ground Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's production company. It's a story about a camp of disabled people in the nineteen seventies and how the this group of people came together when they were very young. Essentially led to the movement to an incredible movement For Disabled Rights over the last forty years Very direct down the middle heartrending kind of story issues oriented documentary. This is the sort of thing that usually does well at award shows. I think it is well done well-made I have nothing bad to say about the movie. It felt very pro forma to me but also there's like two or three times on your when you'll cry when you're watching it you know like it's still kinda grabs you. What did you think a Kripke? Absolutely I I was very moved by also and this is this is on me but it was not a movement that I knew a lot of history about so I did actually find it really educational which sounds sort of like homework when I say it but there is just I I like I learned a lot about very recent history that impacts the way that we all live so and it is really effective in that way and it and it tells that story and there are a couple of personalities who are really memorable. I think it's more You know it's one of those things where it's an important story well told As opposed to like a a magical. Can you believe this happened moment of cinema and I think we possibly undervalue important stories? Well told like in life but also documentaries but I agree that you know I mean nothing rises to the level of American factory. It's a it's a tough standard to have but it's not quite there. I recommend it though. If you haven't seen it between Kripke and Mrs America I'm really learning a tremendous amount about seventy s political movements. That I was not alive for. Maybe we'll talk Mrs America at some point because that's also operated much like a film even though it's nine parts very interesting show. I would recommend crip camp. I think now especially the movie was only released. A few weeks ago so There's a lot of people who haven't had a chance to catch up on. It's very well done. Let's go to the two. Popes about the two popes. It's a movie I finally saw it I it existed and I saw it. I really nice movie enjoyed it. I really liked the last Seven minutes and you know. Watch it with your family some time and we can move on. It's kind of weird him with the two puffs I'll never forget telluride screening of the two popes in walking out and like four or five people around me just being like wow best picture. They did it. That's going to win. Best Picture and then It's a it's a nice movie. Tell done yeah great performances I think is probably a little bit cavalier about the destruction that the Catholic Church has brought on some people's lives but hey we're gonNA do. It was not gonNA go down that road but I agree with you. Okay okay moving on. Let's talk about fire. Fire another movie. That feels like it was one hundred years ago. It was fire last year. Was it last year at this? I honestly don't know and I have to be very honest. I looked this up and have already forgotten which one is fire in which one is the other. One fire is the film that was directed by Christmas. It did not include the participation of billy. Mcfarland the the IMPRESARIO behind the ill-fated fire festival I I think fire is the superior film to the Hulu Film which which I think is called is called Fire Festival. I can't recall I'M A. I'm a huge Chris Fan He made Jim Andy the Jim Carey documentary years before that on Netflix which I didn't include on this list but perhaps I've made a grave error He also made American movie which is like a much-loved late nineties. Sort of documentary. Fire is the first time I ever thought that Internet documentaries belong outside of the Internet. Because it's a story not just about the Internet and told by people who work on the Internet but it's like it has the energy of the Internet the movie itself. Now I don't know if that was a purposeful choice by the filmmakers but when I was watching it I was like. Wow this is this is kind of like watching a really good youtube videos in a row and I don't know that that's oddly. An achievement unto itself. What do you think I agree with you? Though I do find it hard to separate this movie from the other fire festival movie from like the Internet storm around it and a lot of ways that makes it very representative Netflix. Movie right because it just instantly became a meme and if you didn't see either one of these movies you were aware that they existed. You're aware of clips of them. Your characters from these movies and it it brought interest to the service itself just because of the the Internet nature of it which I think we're seeing more and more if you have a meeting or two in your net flex movie people well rewatch it. They'll screen shot it. That will send attention to it. I mean that's the bird box effect for sure so I I do think it's significant but I just the at at some point I do also think it's just kind of borrowing at at some point. This is what like looking at. Instagram is like all the time. And I'm very familiar with that because that's what I do and and it's a good explainer for people who don't do that and it does effectively recreate that but to me. It's a little bit borrowing on other Internet Platforms or mediums. If that makes sense it does so crip camps out. The two popes is out fire is out. Okay do we have to fight about this is I mean I love Ohka Island. I was really moved by Ota. And you're just you'RE GONNA be rude to accomplish director and to feelings and two children and to animals and I don't need to be. Yeah I have a heart. You're put in the awkward position of defending children. Animals Bong Jun Ho. And that's not awkward. I'll I will defend bogged Ho and children every day of the week animals. You know. Let's also just an unbelievably strange Jalen hall performance. Which is another thing. I can't believe you're not on board for that. This has all of the things that you like I. It's it's almost too much. It's almost like when you you wait all week to order that special meal your favorite restaurant. You know you've been anticipating anticipating and then finally server to you and you eat it in five minutes and then you're just incredibly sick for the rest of the night and you're like why did I ruin my Friday night by not respecting myself and my body and I feel like Okra is just bong overload. You know it's just wants to do well. You're blessed eater and I'm not unfortunately I don't know how to control myself and this feels like that kind of person you know it's like it has all the hallmarks of all the stuff that I care about as you said and I love all. This is the one that I struggled with the most. I remember seeing it at net flicks as offices. I went to like a this beautiful screening that they have at their offices and I was fired up. I was like Netflix. Gave Juno fifty million dollars to make a weird ass movie about the ecological crisis a superpig. This is GonNa Rule Tilda Swinton it. Paul Deneau Stephen Jake Jilin Hall really going for Giancarlo Esposito tons of my favorite actors and I don't know it just it. It actually does remind me of that sensation that we were describing earlier in the show which was just like. I just didn't feel complete now. That's not the case in this scenario. Because you know. Bong has great vision. This is what he wanted to make. But I don't know I just couldn't I recall on the on the show before the night I came home and found? Eileen in bed like just a mess crying at okra. Yeah. I don't have pets on people but not me I will say I watched it at home and and I rarely have that kind of emotional locked in response to movie that I watch for the first time on a streaming services home as we have talked about a great length and I was invested. I was really moved by it. And I and I like wept but I do kinda think in terms of it being a netflix movie that extra s and that over the top is kind of what you need to hold people's attention it worked for me. It's also like it's a really well made movie. What are you why it makes me mad? I paid myself. Put a fucking pen in it. We're not if I'm not okay. Thank you from angry too. Happy Tree on the SPREADSHEET. Go back and highlight it okay. I'll put get anything passed me. Okay this is. This is live. Podcasting folks triple frontier. Yes in in are we. The only people left on triple frontier island. I think Chris Ryan and Zach who sought with us. I think it's the four of us. Okay Andrew Dice Garo. I should say our culture at the ringer and who has made a lot of content. We made memes that literally. No one else glommed onto. This is a great movie. Go Watch this movie. What else are you doing when the next version of cinema comes along twenty five years from now a bunch of French intellectuals start analyzing the American films of the twenty tens? They're GONNA look back. Only at what the ringer did. To appreciate The Majesty of Triple Frontier. We will be the canary in the coal. Mine and I. I look forward to be memorialized than that way. It's going to be great for triple frontier in the hall of Fame Velvet. Bud saw this is not going in the hall of fame. Game Gilroy Or world horror mystery film. I kinda liked it. Honestly it's imperfect also features a very strange Jake Dylan hope performance. I'm sensing a trend here from net flicks Solid movie not my favorite Thirteenth.

"Your host Cynthia and happy Wednesday everybody. We are made wake of another quarantine week and I hope he goes. You guys are all holding up I have been trying to get back to a consider team this week. I feel like the first week of quarantine I was so committed to like not lose my routine to stay consistent especially with like my sleep schedule and whatnot but that kind of felt that kind of fell down the drain last week so it's been a bit of struggle by feeling this week. I'm doing a little bit better. I've been trying to work out more consistently but obviously just not the same working out at home than it. Is You know working out at a gym and a facility. So I definitely missed the gym. I miss her but we gotta do you know make the best of a situation right now and I just have to keep reminding myself that this temporary you know this is building. Grit S- Some definitely trying to look at the glass half full right now Nothing too eventful happened over the weekend. It's another boring boring quarantine weakened for me literally. The highlight of my week is coming in to record these episodes so gives me a break with in the house. But don't worry you guys. I am the only one here. I we disinfect. Every single inch of everything in the studio like and I'm again. I'm the only one here so do not worry trust me. I'm trying to be as protective and as careful as possible taking the necessary precautions that I need to so I don't spread the virus Actually something quite an ex. Not kind of really exciting. The happened last night. One of my best friends. She dropped her first ever single And it's so good. She actually previewed the song to our friend. Group back in New Year's New Year. She previewed the song but at that time she only had like thirty seconds of Dine and she just randomly dropped it last night and it is flacco flames fire if you love have pop if you're into discovering new artists than I suggest going to the GMC music podcast. Listen to that one episode. One forty two is the very last episode. I just recorded and I give you the rundown of this new artists on her amazing song that she just released. So besides that pretty boring Let's get into actual. We're here to talk about why. The movie podcast. Not The music one So no movie theater. No problem right because thankfully we live in this advanced technological technological world now where we have streaming services rebel to digitally rent. You know everything from the comfort of our own home from click on a button so we're not missing too. We're not missing out by not having movie theaters open. So basically what? I'm going to be covering on today's episode. This first segment are so. I'm going to be sharing a guys where you can stream the Oscar winning film parasite As I said it is an Academy Award winning movie so I'm sure many people such as myself want to still have access to watch the movie. Somehow so I'll be sharing with the guys that first segment and then in the later segments a view are a fan of the movie inception with Leonardo Di Caprio than I'm going to be giving you guys the scoop on the best movies to stream or rent if you love inception if you haven't seen him inception that's kind of a tongue twister right there right inception. It is streaming on Netflix. So you can watch inception if you like that movie. You'll most likely like the rest of these. Al Be mentioning throughout today's episode. So that's basically the rundown what we're GONNA be talking about. Just what other movies are available to us On what streaming sides? Where can we rent? Where can we buy all that good stuff? So let's begin with where we can stream the Oscar winning film parasite following its historic best picture when earlier. This month at the Academy Awards. Peirce has been receiving a lot of attention and rightfully so. I mean if you guys have had a chance to see the trailer for the movie it looks pretty enticing. So I definitely want to go see it and before Keith. And I separated from this podcast. He also told me that he watched parasite although he didn't have the best perception of the movie. He thought he had really high expectations and different me expectations. I don't have extremely expectations for movies. As long as I was a good plot and the acting good I feel like I'm GonNa like the movie regardless maybe already impairs Cy and you're trying to convince other people in your life to go check it out but can't persuade them to see it in theaters or may be used when I watch it again yourself. Well I have good news for you guys because after its Oscar win parasite is heading to streaming parasite is now available on Hulu. It was announced in February that the streaming service primarily owned and fully operated by The Walt Disney Company will be the exclusive streaming home for the best picture winner beginning on Wednesday April which that is today so now. Hulu subscribers can watch all the twists and turns of boom June. Ho's masterful film from the comfort of their own home as many times as they wish for those of you don't know who bombed June. How is he is the director of this amazing film? I wished I had to Hulu Account. I actually just ended my free trial so I will not be able to stream parasite from Hulu. Anybody is one is shared your account with me down below in the comments. I will greatly appreciate it. I will pay you a in terms of great content for the shell how `Bout that the field of streaming services is crowded and growing more so by the and everyone is vying for eyeballs and subscriber dollars and that means offering compelling content. People can't get anywhere else right so this is a big win for Hulu. The actually stems from a multi year partnership deal the streamer made with parasite studio neon back in two thousand seventeen that gave Hulu exclusive first window streaming whites for olive neons content. Little did the service no. Then that they'd have a best picture winner in just a few years time and not just the best picture winner parasite nabbed four Oscars at the Academy Awards including best original screenplay. Best International Film and Best Director for Bong Jun Ho. So that alone Chiquita. Push you persuaded to watch the movie. Like a parasite was able to snag. Four awards you know. What is it about this movie? That makes it so great. And that's what entices me because I'm like I want to see what the hype is about for those that haven't seen it yet. Parasite tells a story of a poor family the cons. Its way into the service of a rich one. That's basically nut shaw to say anything. More would risk spoiling the surprises in this dark. Darkly funny and bidding film Peirce is already available to purchase on Blu Ray and digital and is also available to rent digitally in case. You're not subscribed to Hulu a would rather own that said a lot of people don't check movies out until they come on on streaming services so hopefully being on air quote free streaming with a lower barrier of entry will give who lose millions of subscribers enough incentive to check out the multiple oscar-winning or Oscar winner alongside Hulu other content like originals the handmaid's tale and castlerock which I've heard of those two shows before her great reviews. Alas the home media release means that parasites theatrical run is now over though. It certainly has quite attempt on the big screen. The film has received a theatrical expansion following its performance at the Oscars and got a major bucks off his boost to boot. According to box office MOJO parasite made fifty three point three million dollars domestically and two hundred point seven million dollars worldwide bringing its worldwide total past the two hundred fifty dollar million mark to two hundred fifty four point one million dollars. That's a lot of money. Remember that exclusive deal. That clue has within the arm. Will that means that parasite isn't the only Bong Jun ho movie. You can enjoy if you're subscribed to that platform on the same day that parasite was added to Hulu. The streaming services also added to thousands. Barking dogs never bite which is also directed by Boo John. Home Two thousand six to host and two thousand nine the mother. So now you have the option of having a Boon Jun Ho marathon of Hulu whether that starting with parasites and then going earlier into bonk's demography or watching these movies in chronological order. The choice is yours but again this option is only available to Hulu subscribers. And you guys were GonNa take a quick break today when we come back.

"To show help us Rent that movie. Let's give money to the company that this movie is. Basically you know but one thing I and maybe you can remind me of the exact line but the scene where a metaphorical. Yeah the the seniors Iraq. Yeah the scene where from GRANDPA at varian when the the father from the main family loses it on the F- The father and the the main family and does he say like is it respect that he says that it's like that and that's something that's repeated through the whole movie that someone says words like No. That's crazy ghost man crazy goes man. No no credit goes man praised Mr Park and it keeps going respect with that. When they're ready Daddy Park doesn't say anything he just. Piss 'cause Could he's looking dead daughter and Mr Park comes over. Tries to get the keys to his car and then he grabs his. Now's Kazaks a whole thing about the smell. Was the scene where he stabs him before. That were there behind the when they're about to do the tie in. I know the cultural the Just the Rep. When they're hiding behind the bush about to do that. Reenactment kind of the name of making thing is amazing. The kids where the father just immediately. Kinda is starting to change his viewpoint on the the rich father and then again with the whole smelling thing. That's that's what it was that is repeated. It's my thing is amazing so yeah some of the desktop so effective especially with as you said C. Planting Yeah throughout the movie even as Low Gross. But this actually is very relevant and I just thought of it. Okay the whole thing with the underwear. Yeah how they these? The rich people are like fantasizing. Basically like about gossip fantasize like they're like that like that class that like British idea of repression. That kind of thing like this is grossly put on the gloves and everything like the plastic gloves and then when they're having a little intimate moment he's like you should get those underwear. Oh yeah like that also ties and really well if that made sense Just the made sense minute ago. There's much to think about too though. It's also Oh. Yeah it's I think comparing it to snow piercer. I think this one will still have a much longer shelf life than that. Just purely in terms of the discussion. It's brought up and the amount of buzz that it's had. I feel like so. Just tell underrated it is and I think it's already been kind of many times did you. It's already been kind of forgotten and I think this one thankfully will really help Cement Bong Jun. Ho's a real voice and Cinema and I think it's already causing people to go back. Who maybe had not seen his other movies and he has a lot of them. Yeah to go back and watch others which is great and I think Hollywood it seems movie called. Mother there there there. There is a movie a South Korean film called mother. I don't know if he did it though. I don't WanNa tell tales out of school. But what the heck was that line Harry Potter Reverend? No tell tales out of school. Yeah is that like a southern expression it is. I've never heard that telling. Tales out of school is like presuming or or or Yelich presuming or falsely. You know her that. That's dope. Yeah that'd be a good movie name maybe ten days at school but it'd have to be in another language but that's what it would mean him yet for any. I just heard the non-southern southerners out there. I recently learned the devils beating his wife. It's if there's a thunderstorm which is God awful no pun intended. Wait say that one again. That was being his wife of heard. That's not recently but eighty two. What do you mean? I didn't hear yesterday hasn't rained in a while though I've heard that said in a while but I mean I've heard it before sometime in life. There's last time I don't remember Like is your daddy glass blower. We've we've talked about that one because I didn't get it for a long time. Yeah have you ever. I'm overweight you're talking. Classic for any non others apparently means move. Could Your blog view because your dad can make things that people can see through? That's weird but I like it. That's a little southern lingo. Everybody out there. There's so much but we can't talk forever but there's so much I want to talk about like things will just keep popping in my head like Oh and this is like the native American thing like I said that was great tie-in and there's so much. Oh okay let me see I. She said this no regular one are beckon. That's too hard. We all know there are all sorts of it film buddy believing you anyway. I really liked that. They didn't apart what made it so Effective and also kind of casual and Hashtag relatable and all those things I say too often. You know accessible my favorite term movies. Accessibility is that there were like the rich. People were not evil like they weren't horrible. People The poor people weren't completely. You weren't like looking down on them like all these poor like they would like you now. They're real people and you're like why are you doing that? Bre that's messed up just like that kind of thing turn your back on your people pushing him down the stairs when you're better off just worked together. Plus what's so creepy concept living into But also like those are the things they're hidden away present. You don't think about the families and think about these are the like all the other people who fuel their lifestyle but also it's not they're not evil. It's not malicious or anything. They just not thinking about it which is so much more relevant. And that's why the movies actually kind of impactful. You know what I mean in the same way as Florida project. I would say sure this one's of course more in your face. I think in terms of that like this one's a lot I mean obviously the very different This movie movies. It's more I would say at least a very similar. This one is more refined and kind of playing within a genre or is that when more. Yeah I don't know I don't know what it was almost like docudrama something like that. Yeah some. It's like this new substance. It's the Sean Baker. It's this is Shaun Baker. Sallis it. Yeah I think it's an excellent movie. Also I'm good like I'll probably I'm watching again with someone to be like look like to show someone The movie does that make you know? I think it was better than us but I do think there are a lot. Actually I think about it of a correlation what shows how universal and important and You know effective exactly these These stories are which I really appreciate because like Oh people won't WanNa hear about that people on watch that people were Blah. You know which And I think it's awesome that like it got so much recognition more than because it's a foreign film and that's why everyone excited about which is also you know it's cool. I don't know how relevant that is if you ask me but I think it's cool right but Also that it had these intense messages and also because performing while. Oh Yeah. It's doing very well. Yeah and it's like meaningful and I like it okay. So like Florida project again. There's like there's like a spectrum. Florida product was not so successful. I think I mean I know it was like critic like New York City was successful. You know what I mean. Is it all that so sad? And those kind of like the point of the movie was basically like showing that world and that was that slice of life but also. It's not really nice life because obviously formulaic like is it was scripted. You know what I mean so. It's kind of confusing. That's one method of doing it. Then then I'm the toll opposite side I would say almost maybe the reason for not being as successful maybe in some ways. Interestingly enough is no piercer because like I said same themes for sure but super heavy genre apiece with mostly American leads. Everything which might be like. I have these things I wanna say but I'm to use like I'm worried about the reception that I'm just GonNa hide it away until it's not really what I want to say as much you know what I mean like and then like my mom doesn't WanNa put a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker on her car. You feel me sure. Then in the Middle. Is this movie which had enough genre were fascinating interesting dynamic to watch and because of that it kind of Makes the the intent unfortunate reality is that you must examine if you want to? You know kind of be like a you know functioning human to quote two killers. Who is courting poem from somebody else? Sorry about that other person. Are we human or are we dancer? You know what I mean those but if we put the Florida project things into this movie they're so integrated into a visceral emotion at the moment. Which kind of almost What's the word? Almost mimics like empathy. You know what I mean so much more effective. Yeah did that make any sense? Yeah I think I had. Maybe a moment genius little brower. And they're they're going away to the record books. Just be hit the top of her. I mean our hands because people people like horror movies and stuff because it makes them feel it makes bodies literally react right. So tying that into these integral issues of global society together is going to be like. Oh this is the deal. This is for real as I feel like a lot of movies that address. This kind of thing. I really slow and like a observe and tried to have lots of life little sweet moments to make you to try to make you sympathize like all like a puppy. It's a little patronizing time in some ways. Right as opposed to this one which lays it out so relatable even like the opening scene with the Wifi. Yeah you know totally. I think it's I'm glad yeah. I'm glad this movie is what it is. I think that at the same time. I am also glad that movies like the Florida project exist. Yeah because I think they can in many ways unintentionally so I think they feed each other and so I think it's you can't have one without the other. I think in in some ways not they could survive on their own and be effective. But I think in this day and age I love the. There's the Sean Baker look me to the ball Juninho. Look yes as well bound. You has a little bit like happy feet. You seeing a movie about Kilo Penguins and guess what Paul Ocean here. That was all they stay DECAPA. They did the counselor style on the Penguin who. That's when I came out of that movie. I said that was genius. Trick you know. Even though chloe was like that They're tricking everybody. Went into steam this movie and climate change et Cetera. Paulo Shaggy says pollution warm climate air pollution. Yeah Yeah the climate change at the early to them by chance. Did you see the when parasite one who was the woman Who came to talk? Who could speak English? What she said about Bongino. Oh you need you love him. She was super. She's Like I love Bong Jun Ho. He he is never takes himself seriously. He's always making jokes he's he's. I love his hair like happen like when I was watching it. I was like Khloe Gut. I'll have maybe I'll try and put it into historical you know. I'm going to cry when I watched. You could tell how embarrassed he is..

"You do right. Let us my job. But that's I mean that's an amazing win for the first South Korean film to even have ever been nominated again for Oscars incredible but I mean again again. It's just really nice to see like there's more like representation of minorities in Hollywood South Korea and like we mentioned this like in other episodes Just how like. There's very little Asian representation in Hollywood. So it's really nice to kind of see it being a little more diverse this this year and the Director of Para Sai Bong Jun Ho. He won all three categories for which she was nominated which were for best writer Director Director and producer. Congratulations to his team has cast everything To know I think that was like a pair. Cy wanted to really just highlight their accomplishments especially beginning of today's episode. Because that's just like super amazing Dan again history-making moment for them and South Korea and and it's exciting to see like because part of the reason that like a lot of those films won so many Oscars because because there were like just the market was limited compared to what it is today so to win four Oscars in today's environment is incredible because the number of movies that come mount every year is exponentially higher than it's ever been and the number of places that are producing the number of countries that are producing critically acclaimed movies. Lease is also higher than it's ever been and as we continue to see the rest of the world start entering into this like this. I guess we will call Hollywood right as we can see them. See them entering into this like Hollywood space with with foreign films. It's exciting to see that they're gonNA be given at least some some kind of like I don't know if you WANNA call equal footing necessarily because it did take a long time for a foreign film to win. And I'm sure that there have been other foreign films that deserved to win over domestic films but regardless exciting to see the like you said the diversification of the industry so we're pretty impressed with the trailer trailer that we just watched. The trailer was definitely not what we expected. Yeah well so the trailers starts making you think that this is like oh like acute slice vice of Life Wes Anderson type flick and then like just rapidly turns into something completely different and that like the trailer says like this movie is now what you expected expected it to be in like. I'm sure that it is not what you expect it to be. I've been told by my friend who recommends movies to me. And he's usually pretty dead on with his recommendations that this is the best film one of the best films he's ever seen in his life he already saw it.

"bong jun ho" Discussed on Cinephile: The Adnan Virk Movie Podcast
"The Academy Awards. Seriously you will not find a better film critic of America than Manohla Dargis. She's chief film critic for the New York. Times joined the paper in August of two thousand and four. She's been a Pulitzer finalist three times. Big Fan of Scott as well over colleagues their previous to that she was a film for the L. A. Times and she's done a variety of calm throughout the years etc.. Honestly her work speaks for itself and you should all read her and you should all listen to her now here on CNN. Follow pleasure to have you with us. I know you're under the weather there in Sundance Sundance most corresponding hope. You're at full health. Now I am I am and certainly than the KADEMI awards help boost my health a little bit. I have to say for for change. It was a real boost for all city s and files and anybody who loves World Cinema Asian cinema just great cinema because anybody who saw para seminole. I didn't know one person person who watched them film who didn't love it literally the most scathing review I think I had from a friend of mine who said I thought it was really good. Not as great as other said and the majority of people I know who sought said. That's an incredible film. I hope that wins everything and what was a very predictable night and I would think a very kind of a slog to be honest with that. Didn't realize the Grammy's and all of a sudden took place where eminem showing up in Marty's fallen asleep and I'll we'll talk with the Irishman in a second but when Bong Jun Ho won for best director and went parasite won for best picture. Can you imagine two more exciting moments as film film lovers than both of those. No I mean it really was. I think most of the people I know and I know a lot of critics and we you know everyone and I know really does as well loves parasite but we've gotten used to our favorite movies being shut out and you know some a win for something like moonlight for example a a couple of years ago. That just feels like a complete nominally so I think we were kind of predict to you know there was this kind of sense of resignation. That yes there was a long march tonight. One thousand nine hundred seventeen to cement his movie winning Best Picture and win Bong Jun Ho one for director. That kind of shifted The the evening and it felt like oh I remember I told my husband I said well. At least he won best director of Nineteen. Seventeen going to win so I say fuck thought to Biwott because all they do that sometimes right they'll give you know Spielberg Director Saving Private Ryan. Shakespeare in Love Wins Best Picture. That split them up a little bit and I said Yeah at least they gave him director as you said but nineteen seventy one the PGA won the BAFTA Golden Globe. I mean come on. But how endearing is Bond Juno his speech he literally. You know as well as I do. I mean these people can pretend to be shocked. There was no pretending with this guy was absolutely amazing. He won best director and I thought his speech was so beautiful. The fact he specifically cited aided Scorsese and how he inspired his work in South Korea and then Tarantino who's always been a real supporter of Asian Cinema. What a beautiful speech it really was and you could see even when he when he won best director and he was on stage? I you could tell. He immediately looked at Scorsese. Could see the sight lines and I find that deeply moving he was acknowledging the great debt. Of course say that he owes Scorsese would like so many people. And you know when we talk about international cinema. I think we sometimes kind of only thing of South Korean cinema is this thing but cinema is international and bunk. Jun Ho is influenced by Martin. Scorsese has he has other you know leading world tours. You know people do not. I mean you know. Movie Lovers including movie directors do not have put up some sort of little wall around themselves and say Oh. I'm only going to watch this kind of movie. Hollywood in so what's interesting is that has been developing a pretty with only seven features features a pretty strong following and it was just really great to see that he wasn't just some critical fetish that actually people inside the American Louis. Mainstream really recognizing his talent but he in turn was recognizing scorsese so it was really kind of beautiful. A friend of mine who has not seen the film cast the jaundiced eye. For this reason. He said okay. So the academies at a real problem well documented well-publicized with a lack of diversity yet again going on from Oscarssowhite this. You're only Cynthia Ribas dominated on the acting nominees. So doesn't it look nice now to reward a film the from South Korea for not only best picture and best director and I said okay. That's an interesting thought tab but anybody who has seen parasite knows how great the film is how Genre Bending is how audacious is one thousand nine hundred nineteen to your point would have been a very safe predictable choice. I think is as an acclaimed film and particularly I love Deacon's obviously the fact. He went present Mottaki. I'm overjoyed the fact. He went over thirteen and now he's on a hot streak. He's too too but I'm with you minol anybody who would discredit credits. A parasite is somebody who just doesn't appreciate a film. It is. Yeah I think that's a very Sh- shortsighted Take honestly and you know. I hope that your friend actually watches watches the movie rather than just having opinions on something here. She has not seen yet I think that you know diversity Problem remains yeah. I mean you know the problem in American Movie Industry is a problem of You know not very many opportunities for people who are not white and you know just because a movie from Asia one doesn't mean that Princeton representation and choices for Asian Americans is any different. You know no that is still a huge palm. There's actually really good New York Times Editorial by the critic Walter Child talking about this very issue that I really urge people to look got because this is a movie from South Korea. But that doesn't necessarily translate into greater opportunities for black. Americans Latinos and Asian Americans Americans within them the American entertainment industry. You can follow her on twitter at Manila Emon. Oh L. A. D. R. S. tweets are always very refund. Critics followed David Ehrlich Tiber. You guys are also funny and very sarcastic and you've had some fun at people who have been. I took issue with your criticism in one thousand nine hundred feet or your review of the Sam Mendes film Yeah my favorite was Somebody writing me and telling me that it was written by somebody who had never been to war which I thought was very very strange bar to set for A movie review and I'm like no it was written by a movie critic I don't I can't speak to the veracity of I don't believe Sam Mendes were either But I can certainly speak to the movies quality as you know I. Certainly the cinematography is very very very very fine and deacons understandably one But beyond that. I was completely unimpressed by the movie. REVIEWS TERRIFIC I encourage people to check it out New York Times aside from parasite and we always have rooting interest as you said. We get used to being bummed out and disappointed what were other awards. I mean the rest of them are very predictable. Particularly the acting awards but is there one talk to you that you said okay. I Know Laura dern was going to win but I'm happy she wanted was her another award that you were particularly pleased with I think it mainly the words. The acting awards were very predictable as you said them and they had been called for a long time. I was very happy for Brad Pitt. I've recently written a piece about Brad Pitt. And kind of revisited. His career and I think he's very deserving irving and the kind of thing that he does Kind of difficult to explain because it just seems so natural and seems as if he is somehow playing a version of himself which he mightn't be be doing but I think we often don't think about great stars also being great actors and he is actually a really great actor and so for him to be acknowledged knowledge by his peers is actually very very nice. I Love Laura dern and I would urge people to seek out her work including with David Lynch who really kind of pushed her to new levels of experts city. She's a terrific terrific actor. That's well said I thought joker was really overrated for me Middle Eye. So derivative of Scorsese's taxi driver in the comedy comedy. I just thought it was a thoroughly unpleasant film experience so I find it tough to stomach. That not only do Joaquin Phoenix when a best actor but it also went best score and the Irishman of the nine best picture nominees is the only one that went home completely. Empty handed your thoughts on joker and Irishman. I am not a fan of joker as well and I was kind of fascinated at how heavily heavily cribbed. From Scorsese. It was kind of this of fake occur of course movie but without any of the intelligent heart talent I thought it was really sad. Add that Scorsese's The Irishman did not do better Including just With the movie going public I think that yeah to a degree it was really. I don't think it was helped by association with Net flicks I think the people that I'll watch it on television but this is a movie. Did I think actually does need to be seen in theaters. One of the things about movies is that you have to go out to the movies and they kind of keep you captive. You know. You're inside the movie theater and at home home. It's just very easy to have this control. Obviously over the movie. And you know you get a little bored. Seems a little slow you posit Ayud raid the refrigerator and the entire tempo and feeling of the mood completely changes. And it's I think a movie like Irishman is not well-served on on television. I just don't and I think it was really hurt by that association. I couldn't agree more. I think that there's definitely backlash within the industry. And I completely agree with you that I saw in the theaters several times. And that's why I love it so much because as you said I'm held captive and I'm in that mood him in that moment I don't look at my phone. I don't have other things issuing with me so I'm with you I. I think that there is kind of that. Muted reaction to it. Unfortunately twenty people ended up watching it at home. It's interesting the ostriches being a celebration of the best films but of course for you for me for any of us us. These are not our favorite films of the year for you in your top ten. You love the film honey. Land which was a rarity first time ever nominated for best foreign film and Best Documentary. Commensurate The souvenir which is a film. I know you loved as well that was not nominee but maybe a thought on both of those films and and hoping that others will find those. Because I know aside from you know little. Women mayors destroyed Irishman. Obviously films. You love once upon a time in Hollywood but I think if you could kind of give a vote of confidence those two movies maybe people might check them out. Honey land and the souvenir hunting land is is a really interesting movie about a beekeeper And from the very first scene of her walking along a terrifying a cliff It had it has going and it's a really interesting movie about the changing world It's very it's observational. We're just we're with this woman for the entire tire movie and but it has great drama and it's really a a lovely movie. I highly encourage people see it and then the souvenir is really interesting. Movie by a Joanna Hogg Who's really Incredibly inventive British Filmmaker who just suddenly broke through with this one movie but has a a number number of films And she was really instrumental in Tom. Huddleston the the actor kind of gone. You know helping him. With his movie career she makes a Very interesting somewhat intellectual movies..

"Obviously the big winner of last night was parasite which I'm so happy about thought. It was such a great movie. It's one of my personal favorite movies of the year. It's also a historical auricle win. It's like the first South Korean film to Win Best International Film it also won best director screenplay bus picture. Hello considering doing it. Totally swept the awards. I gotta say it's a real tragedy that none of the cast was nominated like you can't have a best picture without a phenomenal domino. CAST so I do think that that cast of actors were completely robbed of their awards but it was still. It's a history making win. First creon movie to Win Best International Film by winning best picture it also was according to the verge quote the first non English speaking film to win the Academy's most the prestigious award and quote all in all big night for the Bong hive director.

's He's he's a star. I think Bongino is a star. I stand fully stand aside from parasite doing so much better than everyone expected. The big acting categories. Gorey's were all pretty much as predicted. My Girl Renee Zellweger one for my second favorite movie of Two Thousand Nineteen. which is Judy? I mean Judy is so good and she was phenomenal in. It and I was rooting for her to win this award so I'm really glad she did. Joaquin Phoenix won. Best Actor for joker which is also I think well-deserved and he's been giving some sort of interesting speeches this awards season. We'll get to that in a second. But the other acting categories went to Laura dern who won for marriage story which you know I I love Laura Dern I think she was really great in that scene but I think overall I don't know if I would have picked kicked her performance as the best supporting of the year I mean I might be biased but I gotta say I thought my girl. Florence Pugh should've gotten not award. She was so good and little women. Anyway anyway. Best supporting actor of course went to Brad Pitt. Who In my opinion definitely had a ghostwriter right one of his speeches right? I mean I can't say that as a fact but after I read that article that said that the pod save America guys own their own speechwriting company that. What do they do award speeches? I was like Oh they wrote this speech like it felt like it was written by. Tommy Vitor Jon favreau like one of the pod save. Hey America guys guess what. Brad Pitt. Speech literally started with an impeachment joke which is like so pod. Save America Vibes. Don't you think it was. I mean that's basically a byline as far as I'm concerned but here's the here's a clip that I that I'm talking about Brad's.

I'M GONNA find you're GONNA give you. Massive snow snowed. Everybody who bought a ticket told somebody to buy a ticket. Thank you I love you if I may be so honored to have all all the female nominees and every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors Maryland you do it everybody else will come on all right all right all right. I'm John Horn host to the frame and joining me is Jacqueline coli editor at Ron Tomatoes Jacqueline. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me John so I know we're only a couple seconds in certified fresh so far. I think you're doing great. You're certified fresh and honestly I would say all the best picture nominees are also pretty awesome. It's probably the highest average on the tomato meter of best picture nominees. We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger.

Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing.

Secular One of the trump lawyers in the impeachment trial. who also happens to play drums in a classic rock band? If you like that sort of thing and tyler knows all kinds of weird stuff and she's always got interesting things to recommend tyler. Welcome please surprise me so I recently saw this movie called Cure. It came out in nineteen ninety-seven. It's this Japanese horror film directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa. And the reason why I went to go see it is because I saw Bong Jun Ho's parasite and I really liked it. And I read an article. Where bomb was talking about? How cure was his all time favorite film? So it's by the other Khorasani. All right of Cure Korea was the classic filmmaker from from Japan who We all know this is the other guy exactly. Yeah I'm This one is about. I think he was born. Fifty years later But Yeah so the the movie is basically about a string of seemingly unconnected murders taking king place in Tokyo. uh-huh quick do that sort of starts off is like a police procedural who'd done at type film but they tell you who did it. Pretty the early on television in this particular scene The detective inspector actor having a conversation where in which the suspect says that he sort of feels a kinship With the detective and you can kind of see reality breakdown in. It's actually unclear whether you're the conversation even happening. Or whether it's in detectives head on Tony Meola guided giving union okay. The conversation just went from conversation to three against the wall. Yes yeah. There are a lot of Mood shifts in this movie which is also how I see it as being kind have similar to to parasite let's move on. Let's go to the second thing that you're up to. What if you've been listening to? Maybe yeah so it's a remix of Kanye West Song say you will which was originally on his Two thousand eight album. Eight awaits in heartbreak and in two thousand fifteen he came out with this remix of the song that just like completely different aren't where he collaborated with Caroline Shaw. She's Pulitzer Prize winning musician. The youngest musician ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. And she's really interesting because she has this coral technique where it's sort of like her voice singing layered on top of it over and over and over again so it's like a one person choir almost in uh-huh.

In the performance of the Year now nominated for Eleven Academy Awards and eleven BAFTA awards awards including best picture director. Todd Phillips and Actor Walking Phoenix. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn and today we're revisiting. My conversation with South Korean filmmaker bond June hogue parasite which he directed and Co wrote could make history this Sunday as the first foreign language film to win in the Best Picture Oscar. This past weekend Bong Jun Ho won the original screenplay prize from the Writers Guild of America and earlier the screen actors Guild Honored Honored Parasite with this award for outstanding performance by a cast. Bong who is also nominated for best director spoke with me at the telluride film festival. The filmmaker was with his translator. Sharon Choy and as we watch people enter the theater where parasite was about to be shown. I was curious to ask him if he ever goes just to see his films with the general public hungers unborn US Cassette Colorado. So I actually did go to a theater in Korea once I wore a hat and and I was very sneaky about it and I wash the film amongst the audience and it was a very fun. Experience I got to see their response is immediately And I felt a sense of pleasure from Keio pick on get continued. And I also felt this compulsion to almost spoil the the story for the audience sitting next to me as well. I want to ask you about parasite because my understanding is you originally wrote it for Earth Theater and not for film is that right coup yongle years is most so it wasn't as if I wrote the script for a theater. Production per per se I originally came up with the idea toying with how it would be to put two houses on stage and that was how the idea began but I quickly realized that film is the right medium for me and so from the very beginning I wrote the script for this green so when you say two houses on top top of each other kind of upstairs downstairs does that mean the idea for this movie comes to you. Visually I that maybe the rich family is up here in the poor families down on there and then you fill in the store. Do you see it first before you start to write it immed- There's this whole gator said because I'm a writer director dirt even from the script writing stage. I already had all the structures of the space mind. Redesigned I was writing the script and for Snow Piercer. The class was divided with the tail cars in the front cars. And with this film I wanted to align Different classes vertically does jump in here in his two thousand thirteen film. Snow Piercer. Bongino created this to stow PIA on a train or the haves and the have nots are clearly separated by the front front and back of the train and at one point a character played by Tilda swinton visits the unruly class in the back and lays down the law. What is the body of the holes back throws them day? We all of us on this train of life remain in our allotted station. We must Egypt's occupying our preordained particularly physician in parasite the divisions are defined not by a train cars. But by real estate. How Nice your home is and in Korea whether or not your place has a basement of Jesse Beagle? God's Donald Trump in Korea compared to homes in the states. Basements are very rare and I think basements provide a lot of layers ears. That you can't always predict I think when poor people look at rich people you always get a sense that we don't know everything about the rich for poor families as everything seems to be exposed But there's this lack of information that you feel regarding rich. People always feel like their secrets and layers to them that we can never discover. Discover when you have an idea in your mind of what the places they're living in look like and then you go to find those places. It can sometimes be difficult. The House that a lot of this story unfolds in is an amazing piece of architecture and it's also separated from the rest of the world just by a door that there is this kind of rich person's Utopia on one side and the ordinary world. Right behind it. How important was it for you to find the right house because the house is almost its own character in this? CB's unload tune in on Katie. Tobol to keep her Tibia. Why haven't you as you said? The houses are very important characters in the film in particular the rich house Most sixty percent of the story happens in that house so we actually built the houses we knew from the beginning that it would be impossible to find the locations so with the production designer. We built the houses onset even the whole neighborhood. The poor courtown is this all rebuild and also not Goo Goo GUAC kept on and also doors and staircases. Air Cases are very important elements in the film the sort of new world and you layer that opens up when you open a door and the meaning behind going up and down the stairs. It's very significant for this film. And so we discussed a lot about doors and stairs with the production designer and the cinematographer. We're talking with rector. Bon John Hoult about his new film parasite outdoors at the telluride film festival. The poor family in parasite are pretending to be people that are not and part of the joke. DOC is. They're better at doing those things. Then maybe the people that's rich family would hire in terms of tutoring in terms of driving. They're better then. The people they would have ordinarily brought into their lives. They're totally qualified. Yes Oh coo coo duties hush hush about Chung hair. That's a very sharp point because they're actually very properly normal and capable people they're smart and they're capable but despite that they still don't have jobs and I think that's the sad part about economic inequality all over the world these days It's not that they're dumb and stupid that they don't have jobs and yet the kims the poor family understand the rich family in ways that maybe the rich family doesn't even understand themselves. They have a way to assimilate and ingratiate themselves themselves. That family that doesn't really work in the reverse direction right that they understand what privilege means to operate in that world even though they have no experience. What's in it to win go? They got the knee and they're talking about a very fascinating question and it's a question that I wanted to hear I think think for the rich family. it's not that they can't understand it's more they just don't really want to know the line about not crossing the line. It's about someone Not Liking someone intruding that line but it's also about not wanting to look beyond that line as well the all they WANNA see is they're comfortable environment Huawei no way climax sequences Michael Look at Petra genetic sequence to Jamaica new really get a sense of that in the film's climax. It happens very fast and hectic but you really see them operating within the lines that they arbitrarily draw for themselves even if something is like one inch beyond that line they they. They treated US something that belongs to another universe another world and I think that's very intimately tied to the theme of this film. When I think about parasite I think about the host? I think about Snow Piercer. I think about OCA- There are so many fantastical elements to all of those films and they're difficult to categorize and yet they all seem to be about real world issues they can be about consumption they can be about class struggle. They can be about families. Do find a storyteller that sometimes the more extreme story becomes the more real it can play that and those channel. So it's not as if I intend to make particularly political film with propaganda. My effort is always to delve into the really mundane aim small daily issues that surround me but once I delve into those issues I find myself ending up in a dark cave of capitalism and so it doesn't happen because because I wanted to but I just end up dealing with those issues. My goal is always making funny movie. Your film snow. Piercer was a critical success in China and abroad but parasite was recently removed from China's first film festival. Because of technical reasons. How how do you think about how your film? And this particular received in different countries even countries they may not welcome it tomb Goo gone to cut him to run. Tim You gonNa tell. China's always very difficult to predict but we do have a Chinese distributor who acquired the film and I think that they must have done it Because they have certainty that it will be released in theaters But you just you can never predict the government or the Communist. Party's decisions for China. But I do hope that one day it can meet. Chinese audiences. Parasite became the first Korean film to win the palm at the Cannes Film Festival. What does that mean to the film? What does that mean to you? And what does that mean to Korean cinema. Motorists see Turkey Hungary chimtal picture new sale community century. Komo so this year marks one hundred anniversary of Korean cinema and a lot of people discuss this award as a historical gift to celebrate. It and I think it was an incredible league coincidental. Amazing gift but I do think that Korea should have received give this award earlier. There have been a lot of amazing Korean film. Directors like Kim Jong who directed the house made and I think relatively compared to Japan and China Korean films were spread to the Western world a little bit late And of course personally. I consider this award a huge honor but I try my best to Work so that before and after this award things really haven't changed as much even before this award. I was working on two three projects. And I'm trying to calmly continue on with those projects. Sure enjoy and Bon John. Hoult thanks for coming on the show..
"bong jun ho" Discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast
"All right well to another episode of piecing it together podcasts where we take a look at a new movie and try to figure out what movies inspired it and today on the show we are finally covering one of the most talked about movies of two thousand nineteen I was thinking about waiting to record. Cord this intro Until we find out about the Oscar nominations because it's probably going to be up for a whole bunch of stuff But this is The week before that It just won best. Foreign language film at the Golden Globes did not win best picture drama or best director. Many people thought it might it. It is of course Bong Jun Ho's parasite if you don't know it. It's a Korean film deals with class warfare. Although really you should go watch it first and and then come back and listen to this. Everybody's been talking about it. Anyone who is part of the the film world the the world of talking about Films Online online knows about this movie. It's been something that's been talked about nonstop all throughout two thousand nineteen and it is one of a few movies movies. I did not want to move on into twenty twenty without having gotten a chance to talk about and I'm glad to finally be talking about it with my old buddy cue you from the Byrd Road podcast and of course my boss here all points West Network So yeah we got a great conversation. That's a little bit of a quick one in but We we get some really good puzzle pieces in so great episode coming up here in a second on parasite I I do want to remind you. Make sure you're a subscribed appeasing at the other end your podcast APP of choice. You can rate and review us on Apple podcasts. And also on Pod chaser follow us on social media at Piecing podge on the FACEBOOK facebook group popcorn and puzzle pieces. You know what. Let's get into this conversation about parasite All right so today on the show. We've got with US David. Kenyon as how's it going. I'm splendid. You don't sound so sure about the Barn von okay. Let's let's let's move forward. We're GONNA talk about parasite which I think this might be the longest. I've gone between seeing a movie and finally covering it here on P.. I know it's unfortunate. Although this is is a move that we you kind of have to let I don't know about you I don't I don't think you'd like this. Maybe quite as much as I really liked it but this is a movie that need that needs to simmer a little. Does it absolutely does I actually. So that is something. This movie has very much grown for me. As as I've moved further away from like really thought about you know what exactly Ackley he's trying to do with it. What he's trying to say and different you know we'll get into that as we get into some of these puzzle pieces but I I do like it quite a bit more than when it first came out? It's also a movie. The and people have been asking me about parasite for months now like oh his Paris I really you know as good as people say and I almost want to like temper their expectations. Because that's part one of the problems I went into it like Oh okay this weekend. I'm going to see the greatest movie ever made according to everybody on twitter the other the other quandary with with parasite is when you're presenting you for other people are preparing it for other people is reading the room like this is not a movie for everybody and there's a lot a lot of people who you know even if there are people who appreciate. I don't know what would what you would call this in my guess people who aren't just Michael Obey fans by the way you gotta give me on for six hundred sixty still have six hundred. I have watched it on New Year's Day but it was probably and the best movie of the last twenty five years. Six hundred ground is incredible but this movie even if it's people who aren't you know Michael Bay shoot 'em up like you know kind of basic bitch movie people people that have some taste or you know some insight into what makes you know torch movies good. This is still fifty fifty fifty chance that is not going to be up there alley and that it won't really land and that Ville ingested as nothing. Nothing more than then the typical rare. Yeah I it's funny. I was actually just thinking about that yesterday with I once upon a time in Hollywood just came out on streaming and the amount one of people in my especially facebook feed not so much twitter feed who are like finally saw once upon a time in Hollywood. God was that boring and it's just like who are these people like you know. They apparently can't get into this kind of a movie. Something that's you know. Maybe a little bit under the surface that you actually have to pay attention for and really like get into if you're going to enjoy it's not just being just a total just assault with action the whole time or a non. Stop joke a minute Kinda thing though. This is a funny movie and it's got some action. It's funny it does have some action in it has tension and those thriller moments in it but what the message is immediately accessible. It's not it's not that over and I guess we'll get into that as we start talking about. What influences were I will say toughest toughest I've been on? I don't know how many of these four or five piecing together toughest one this is very much. A singular. The movie Mary Unique. I don't think that the director Bong Jun Ho is influenced by rot of cinema. I think yeah I think he's. He's mostly an original creation. He absolutely has. He's an original voice. One hundred percent and We could still find things that we could talk about. So why don't we jump into the first one. What do you got for your first piece and yeah we probably won't have a lot of pieces on this one but let's let's see we got I so I did a little bit of research and I actually watched some things that mine are going to be a little esoteric weird but I I will start off with one? That's pretty Pretty on point and the thing that I couldn't stop thinking about during the course of this whole this entire movie and that's not a movie at all it's actually a TV show. Originally a British show that is that ran for. I think a couple of seasons or series. Take the call them over there and then came over here and has now been going strong on showtime for. I think thirteen years a show called shameless. Which stars William HVAC and Whole cast of a young younger folks the main up until her departure from the from the show them the other main character was Yona Gallagher who was played by gobbled Osama smiles? Girlfriend's name. Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Day. Yeah so so incredible. Show at this point. It's been on so long that I'm not really sure if anybody's watching it anymore. It's not really part of the Zeitgeist. But it was you know follows the gallagher family. Who who are these? He's you know low end south south side Chicago dirtbags that run scams. They don't have their in their just generational impoverished they they have all these horrible genetic traits of alcoholism violence. And just all of these different things that that sort of work together with the system of capitalism that we exist to keep them down the show over its many years has done a great job of showing how like how equally to blame not romanticizing. I think a lot of a lot of times when we show or we depict the poor or the impoverished there's a tendency NC to romanticize them be right. How poor they are? Not there falter in the situation and one thing that I that I found refreshing as somebody who grew up really poor about parasite and that I love about shameless is that they don't let them off the hook they're dirtbags they're completely opposite and they're they don't try to But they're still human like that doesn't mean that they're not worthy of being treated with dignity so Yeah my number one. I don't know if you've ever seen an episode episode of shameless or not but we may see as really just like kicked ass for the last thirteen years on that TV show. Yeah that's a show. I did watch like I. I don't know three episodes. So there's something really liked it just never got to really get into it and continue but Yeah no I I like that piece ally and I like you know what you're saying there about you know about them basically being dirtbags. I mean that's another thing of that barrier of entry for this this Movies I think you know people who are given the scoop on what it is beforehand beforehand are going to be like. Oh another rich people bad movie you know but really. That's that's the beauty of it is that it's not that it's everybody's bad you know. And and that is going to factor into some of my pieces for sure but Yeah No I. I like that shameless. As a as a first piece. That's great. What do you do so so my first one I think is a a pretty obvious one and I actually? After having written down did end up finding a Somewhere where Bong acknowledged this that he was surprised when the initial trailer for this other movie came out it was like. Oh there's another movie New movie movie exploring themes that is Jordan peels us. Okay yeah in US there. There's this class of people who live underground around. And they are tethered to the people who live in the regular world and You know the people in the regular world get to enjoy the luxuries of of you know. I have a little child here and Harvey Stop Being a literal Royal Child. They get to live in the regular world and enjoy you know regular life on the backs of these people who who live underground have to do some of the harder parts of the world and have to you know like for example the the guy underground down is is you know making the light go off and on all the time and you know the the the the main family just kind of takes it for granted at all. There's a short in the light coming on and off not even really thinking about who are the fact that there could be someone controlling the stuff. It's just there's a lot of levels to that of of of note taking for granted that Oh there is a class underneath that is controlling some of the things or not necessarily controlling but helping being to operate some of the things that go into everyday life. Yeah over on our other show Bird road were which is you know very much about politics.

President Trump signed when his administration is calling part one of a major trade deal with China on Wednesday parts of the deal include the United Sates agreeing to reduce tariffs on Chinese goods and China pledging to more than double its purchases regis's from American farmers now as a refresher this deal comes after nearly two years of a vicious trade war that trump started it hits soybean farmers in the United States especially hard and cost taxpayers tax payers twenty eight billion dollars. Critics are saying that those costs outweigh the benefits of this new deal. especially considering trump wanted bigger structural changes from China. That weren't included. uh-huh some updates to something. We discussed on Monday earlier this week. We told you that Texas Governor Greg. Abbott was taking advantage of trump executive order to completely block the settlement of refugees in a state. Really Nice Guy. Well he's not doing that anymore. Because on Wednesday a federal judge suspended the trump policy on grounds that. It's probably illegal. The judge says the order will likely be found unconstitutional because it puts authority over immigration policy in the hands of states and localities rather than the federal government the injunction and more remain in place while a legal challenge against the please out. It's been brought by three faith based nonprofit that works on refugee resettlement helps. Now who's in the right here. But I'm guessing it's the folks folks who are led by a higher power to do charity just just a shot in the dark. Here's something terrifying. A guy in the midst of a messy divorce asked the court to pursue a trial by COM com which would involve him using a Qatada to sword. Fight against his ex-wife or her lawyer. I believe this was the original plot of the movie. Marriage story the man whose name is David. Ostrom apparently got the idea. From game of thrones and says trial by combat was used as recently as eighteen eighteen in British court. Mary reasons it's funny until you realize he's fighting for custody of his child. Meaning someone will have to tell this guy son or daughter. Your father loves you so much he wants to kill someone with a sword for you obviously see this is a stunt and the judge is not taking it seriously. Some advice for you Mr Ostrom. I know this is an insanely difficult time. But if you're not happy with the custody ruling you can always get get more time with your trial by simply putting on a mask and pretending to be their elderly British nanny and lastly some more good news. I think that the the knife thing is that's fine. I do have good news whatever. An appeals court in Wisconsin. Put a hold on pershing over two hundred thousand people from the states voter rolls. This means at least one barrier that could would have disproportionately affected minorities and low income. Voters is out of the way. Go get right and those are the headlines. That's all for today.

Parasite / Pain and Glory / Contemporary Chinese
"Welcome to film spotting we've been reviewing Bongino hose films here on the show since two thousand six his monster movie the host was our first experience with the director's work which combined genre film making with social commentary and often comedy sometimes a little horror thrown in as well I was looking back Josh Oh pierce notes just prior to coming into the studio and it turns out the host reviewed with the original co host on the show now our producer Sam the next Bunkum we saw and talked about mother with Mattie then you came in to talk about Snow Piercer so we're now into two films from bomb long where we don't have a new film spotting host so I think that says something promising about our future yes we're committed I guess Ocho okay we both did where we both on that show well no we were both on that show I can't remember either but OCA- I try not to think about very much not because I didn't necessarily like it it's just so disturbing yeah it really is and you do get that with Bong on occasion not reviewed here on the show but movie I definitely recommend two thousand three's memories of murder from Bongino his latest film parasite just made it to Chicago last weekend and we are going to talk about it here in a second but we do also want to mention that we're GonNa talk about the second film and our contemporary Chinese Cinema Marathon Fruit Chan's the midnight after comes to us from Hong Kong and it's another one that likes to mix all these different cinematic styles together it's a blend of science fiction history and comedy and probably seven other words that we could throw out came out in two thousand fourteen and was made in the wake of some major political protests in Hong Kong long and here we are in two thousand nineteen protesters again on the streets of Hong Kong we will see how all of that does or doesn't influence our experience with the film but I our review of Bong Jun Ho's parasite I wanNA start Adam by jumping back to the aforementioned snow piercer in that bond film Tilda Swinton looks out at the scraggly lower class citizens live in the steerage section of that title train and tells them you suffer from the misplaced optimism of the doomed as we mentioned parasite also has class issues on its mind the movie opens on a struggling but scrappy South Korean family we've got out of work father play by song Kang Ho the star of a handful of other bond films and a mother played by Jang Hygiene as well as a brother and sister played by Choi Woo Shik and six Oh damn there probably those characters in their teens or early twenties I would say now from their semi basement apartment the Kim family watches at St level the world pass them by if not drunkenly piss on their building they're not in the best neighborhood when the sun happens into a tutoring job with an obscenely rich family the Kim see an opportunity with a few white lies and some scheming they try to find ways each of them can be of service the Parks Lee Sunken is Mr Park and show Yo Jong is the mrs now for a while things seem to be working for all parties involved but we do have the creeping sensation Adam that the lower class Kim's might also be suffering from the misplaced optimism of the doomed the class critique in Snow Piercer had all the subtlety of an axe fight appropriately parasite isn't quite that blunt but I don't think you could say it's subtle either hatchets are also involved at one point given all that Adam did you find that bonds new film had anything significantly different to say about class or is he highlighting income inequality just in a very different sort of setting here. Well I'm going to bow out of your question a little bit Josh because one I would need to rewatch nope Piercer to probably truly thoughtfully address that question and I would need a little bit more time with parasite this is still processing review we just both from the at screening but to that question of the commentary about class as we said it's really been a part of all of his films all the ones that I've seen any way not just in snow pair Suba going back to the host going back to mother there elements of it in memory of murder as well and I think the genius of Bong has always been not so much what he's trying to say but how he says it the new and inventive ways he's been able to tell what really is one of the oldest stories one of the oldest conflicts that goes back to the very beginning of civilization I agree with you completely that this movie maybe seems to be a little bit more subtle than Snow Piercer definitely doesn't have the camp element that you get particularly with that Tilda swinton character but before we really get into how Bong Explores the issue of class here and really what makes him so ashland filmmaker just a general comment having just come out of it we both really didn't know anything about this movie we knew basically at minimum that it had some thing to do with class and we did expect that but otherwise had no real idea even picking up all these comments these raves coming out of film festivals and all these tweets and letterbox comments about it we'd manage to not really have anything spoiled for us this movie was a surprise from start to finish for me but when you're seeing all these people that we really do trust and our tastes even align with just rave about this movie you go into it expecting transcendence not just smart and really L. Mater entertaining it a little bit provocative no it's gotta be borderline sublime and despite those high expectations bog June absolutely nails it here at least for me when it starts the movie high was according to wasn't snow piercer but actually one of the best films of last year from here Kazu Coretta shoplifters because that's a movie that opens just like this movie does with a family fallen on hard times they're out of work they are skimming to survive and that's what we get here and then we remember or reminded fairly quickly in this movie that this is wrong film and that he would sooner cut the heart out of the movie and show it to you that actually give you a lot of heart and there is a satirical element to this movie it's absolutely incisive when it comes to class distinctions it doesn't pull any punches about showing how loathsome almost everyone in the film can be we're going to be very Acre because we want all of you to have the same unspoiled experience we just did but then without resorting really to any sentimentality or convention party he also manages to make virtually all of those same loathsome people tragic or at least tragic in their own unique ways and they talk about classical Hollywood cinema the Lubitsch touch how about the bunk touch. I'm GonNa give you a moment without giving away any of the significant details that comes I think about three here's the way through the movie and at this point I've already been swooning over the camera movement the composition the lighting the occasional use of slow motion that just team so perfect the score which I think is wonderful here sometimes light and sweeping very orchestral and then it gets progressively more haunting and unhinged just has the story does and then you get this moment the does three things all at once and every Bongino film manages to give you at least one moment like this or the totality thirty of the film does this to you it's a moment where you laugh out loud followed immediately by recoiling in horror and not horror movie horror real genuine shock it's something terrible the just happened to someone and the crassness the absolute indecency on the part of the person who committed the act all while being an author of how it unfolded the cinematic dance of it the actual choreography of camera and actors and editing and the thing is I know you know exactly what when I'm talking about can I just ask does it involve a kick it done okay maybe benefits that you are two seats away from me and we had the same exact I mean did you go through that same yeah sequence of thought and you know and you're you're hinted at this as well but part of that whole package you described is also the understanding of why the act took place yes and being on the side of the person who committed it a little bit just as much as your other end yeah exactly which gets to what you're saying about how he handles all these characters shoplifters definitely came to mind for me of course a Japanese family there and that here Kazu Kurita film but really the filmmaker I kept thinking of here and has not occurred to me and other bond films was your ghost lengthy mouse this is tone tone but yeah waiting for this this is the dark side of shoplifters it's could very well be your go slant film in the way it is unbelievable gene about how dark humanity can get but also as you were just describing uses humor not the way horror or dark comedy sometimes does lighten things but to drive that point home kind of twist the knife I'm doesn't offer us release through funny moment but implicates us in the humor's wall which is what happens in that sequence that you're talking

Justed mentioned selene scam new film, which won the best screenplay award. And yes, Yama is the writer and director of two thousand fourteen girlhood that made my list of the top five female friendship movies. We'd continues. There were also new films from Tarantino, Mallock, Alamodome VAR, and Robert Eggers among others in Bong Jun, ho made history as the first Korean director to win the palm the or with parasite Wade continues. Even the bad film seemed worth talking about, for example, David ehrlich's review of MC tube my love Intermezzo from Abdelatif, because she's the director of blue is the warmest color is something everyone should resume. I saw this take. Hold on Twitter Twitter. Right. And yeah, you cut it to in his letterbox entry he wrote, no filmmaker has ever loved anything as much as Abdelatif because she, she loves butts apparently. Butts, and it wasn't just Ehrlich, saying that. So your mileage may vary in terms of your response to that film, if you do ever see MEC to my love Intermezzo, so it's true that this was a bit of an oversight. We don't devote a lot of time to this, that we have in years past when Michael Phillips, from the Tribune has gone to can often come from people or we'll talk to other people and get some news about it or get their sense of the festival, but we overlooked at on our last show might as well like knowledge few of the winners here.

They most Robin camp, E O, who made BPM beats per minute a few years ago, really good film, and Pablo public, husky, who is, of course, the filmmaker behind e and last year's Cold War.

It's billed as a dark comedy about class tensions in South Korea. And it is scheduled to open in New York, and LA on Tober eleventh, look forward to it opening here in Chicago, the second place prize, the grand prix went to Mattie. Diab's Atlantic's best director that prize went to jump ear and Luke, Dr Dan for the somewhat controversial from what I've read the young Ahmed.

She did her best of can report for vox will linked to it in our show notes over phone spotting dot net. And she said of Malik hidden life, that it's his most overtly political film and also one of his most religious urgent. And sometimes, even uncomfortable sounds like we are in for that she also dug into one from the witch director, Robert Aigars. It's called the lighthouse in stars. Willem dafoe. And of course, the newly announced Batman, Robert Pattinson, again will linked to elicit article in the show notes if you're curious about more of those films and her reaction to them. But right now, we need to have a little bit of fun with massacre theater, the part of the show where we perform a scene from a movie and you get a chance of winning a film spotting t-shirt. In case you missed it, here's a bit of last week's massacre. I want to thank you for covering up for me. You're a real. Oh, it's nothing. I, I just thought that a girl should stick together. So the beauty of me going through the mail bag and pulling these responses is that get to focus on one's, like Alex Lancer in Janesville. Wisconsin, who said, Adam don't let, Josh give you any crab you nailed it, while, meanwhile, multiple people wrote in asking, how it is. Because they knew this movie they recognized it.

She's a film reporter at FOX that Palmdale winner, which is the top prize at Cannes was Bong, Jun, Ho's parasite long is known for making films that are very much about class warfare. And this one is especially about that. It's kind of a literal is metaphor about class warfare in Korea. There was a film called back route from Brazil, and that one's about poor people into village being targeted by wealthy people. For sport. And they're trying to fight them off. There was a film called Atlantic's, which was the first film actually from a black woman to be in the main competition at Cannes, and that one's really about young Africans who are fighting back against a wealthy developer, whose not paying them for their work.

But went with Aaron obviously, we were just slightly. In the minority hot fuzz winning this one. And it has the right now to compete against Christopher Nolan's, the prestige hot fuzz for me a somewhat overrated egg right film, and I liked and I don't like the movie, but the prestige falls in that category, again of movie that encourages and rewards revisits. And that for me helps justify why it should win here for once. You're you're going to get some of the nasty notices here calling hot fuzz overrated. I am look out. But don't you think the same people a lot of the same people? I'm really painting with a broad brush there. But the only think lot of them who love hot fuzz, also probably loved the prestige. This is going to be one where we get more comments like the one from Lisa calling us, cruel bastards, it's possible. And hey, I'm with you hot fuzz, not one of my favorite idea right films? I think the prestige is among Nolan's best. I know his other movies. Get talked about more probably made more box office. I'm guessing. But I think everything he does. Well as right there in the prestige. Okay. We have a few more to get to Alphonso. Korans children of men against the winner of our horror play in Tomas Alfredsson's let the right one in going up, and it's Bong Jun Ho's the host. This was an easy one for listeners eighty percent in favor of let the right one in. I do think the right choice. But man, Alfredsson's got a tough haul here going up against Koran and children amend movie that I think could be kind of a sleeper if a movie that's one of the top ten seeds could be asleep for it. Just feels like one of those films that really could go far. Yeah. Maybe maybe some of that Roma momentum working for the film there. You know, I was one of those in the twenty percent who voted for the host. So this is easy for me to go with children of men. My number two film of two thousand six Sam tells me here is where we get to some more cruelty, and it wasn't by design. You'll have to believe us. It wasn't intentional the assassination of Jesse James by the coward. Robert Ford was a film that so many listeners lobbied for just adding it to the shortlist of contenders that not only did salmon I do. That but we ultimately decided to put in the list of sixty four films that made the tournament. And then when we did our seating it turned out that it had to compete against the number three overall seed the dark Knight a movie that got the sacred cow treatment last year in honor of its tenth anniversary, your number five film of oh eight my number ten neither of us put Jesse James on our top ten list of two thousand seven though again, that doesn't necessarily say much about the film because two thousand seven was one of the best cinema years ever. But there are listeners out there. Like, Adam Grossman on Twitter, he already caught this many others are now just hearing it for the first time, they campaigned successfully to get it included. And then we put it up against the juggernaut of the dark Knight as Adam says, oh, come on guys. Really sorry. We did it. Well, I am glad that the assassination of Jesse James by the coward. Robert Ford is getting some more attention here because it's a wonderful film really enjoyed this one when it came out. But it's attention short-lived. I'm voting dark night. Okay. This is probably the last. We're gonna talk about it. Yeah. I need to see the assassination of Jessie James, again, maybe more than any film in this entire tournament. But that didn't happen. And so I'm picking the dark Knight. How about the Cohn?.

"I might even agree with your reasoning are hitman plan. You can go with in Bruges, Colin. Darrelle Brendan Gleeson as hitmen or Tom Cruise in Michael Mann's, collateral, love collateral, and there's still, you know, a little little three billboards stink on in Rouge. Now that's not fair at all, Josh. But it's true. I do appreciate Martin mcdonagh's work and bruises getting my pick because collateral guess what also on the top five list with AI films. I don't appreciate enough in need to revisit. And I'm saying conventional wisdom says I don't appreciate enough and conventional wisdom might be right are unconventional musical plan. Is it LARs von cheers dancer in the dark or John Carney's? Once once just going to trout, you think answer in the dark, but I'm voting for venture. It's one of those films of his that. I really really love him all over the place on him. And I think that one just works fantastically. Yeah. This is one of those where you think about it. In terms of best store, most significant versus favorite and. Are you going with your head or your heart? If I'm going with my head, it's dancer in the dark. I'm going with my heart though, Josh I'm falling slowly for once the documentary play. And this one's easy for me, Herzog's grizzly man versus Errol Morris's, the fog of war. I went fog of war. I think this is somewhat similar to my case with hot fuzz and had girl. Right. I don't think Risley's which I like is necessarily one of his best. Whereas I'd probably of the aero Morris. Documentaries. I've seen put fog of war up there among his work. Okay. We split on this one including on the reasoning for me. The fog of war is not one of my favorite Errol Morris. Doctors many others I love so much more including gates of heaven in the thin. Blue line grizzly man is up there. It's probably in the top five or six for me with Herzog, I love both filmmakers. So I am going to go with grizzly, man. There are horror play in our tenth plan Tomasz Alfredsson's lift the right one in versus Bong Jun Ho's the host easy one for me. Well, it's not so easy because I do both of these films. But. I can more vividly recall the fun. I had at the host really which which made me get my let the right one in for me. All the way the new cult canon play in Donnie Darko versus Mary herons American psycho. Well, I think Donnie Darko a messed up masterpiece. So I did after vote for it. But I will say American psycho is one I need to revisit that. I was not as high on when it came out and most people I think most people did like it initially as well. But has I think it's grown in stature. I believe it has to. So I'm regretfully perhaps voting for Donnie Darko? But I gotta go that way. Okay. Well, I'm agreeing with you on that the two thousand seven special play in this one was made just for us. I mean, literally this plan is only in this bracket because of us otherwise these films probably really don't belong in the conversation of the considered top eighty films of the entire. Decade. Yeah. You'll differently about these films. And in fact, I love your film as well. The one that's your choice in this play. And that would be Serra Polly's away from her versus my beloved atonement from director Joe Wright. Well, thank you for including my consideration in the selection committee deliberations there, I do appreciate that. And yeah, I'm voting for away from her. It's just it's one of those shattering movies for me. Yeah. I love it. It might have made my top ten of that year. If it didn't. It was very close. Didn't have an obviously, then is high is you, but atonement of I may have I may have ranked higher than there will be blood that you're let's just move on to the last the last play in the Colt Sifi play in the inaugural, golden brick winner. Duncan Jones moon versus a little low.

"I'm never been like a huge nNcholas cage fan, I've been kind of in Berlin towards style. Most people either really love him or hate him. I will say a big net national treasure fan, but I really liked him in this film. And especially the way that he just so the only plays portrays grief while, you know, swinging a chainsaw in a big chainsaw fight. So it's wild. I loved it. And how was metric graph metro about his cool. And I first time there. There. It's definitely a smaller venue is not it didn't really feel like a theater venue in a way. Because of just how like it was almost shaped kind of like it was like a form almost like a bar as well as like a storefront for like random theater food. But it was really cool. I didn't get to spend much time there because I got there like right before the movie started. But I quite liked it. It was very intimate theater setting to which I liked cool. What what else have you been watching? So I also watched a memories of murder on Amazon prime, and that's a one of Bong Jun Ho's first films. It's the second film, actually as as a as a feature director, and I hadn't I haven't seen a lot of his at the earliest pin us was the host. And I liked a lot of snow piercer and oak ja-. So I haven't really seen or heard of memories of murder, but it is a great hot crime thriller that just. Ricochets is seen tone of comedies and of of suspense, so well, and so just unpredictably that you don't really know what to make of this film until it comes to like the emotional climax at the end. And it's great. I absolutely loved it. And I highly recommend that you check this out if you're a fan of function how you can watch that on Amazon prime. Yes, it's on Amazon prime and I've also been watching on net flicks. Chilling adventures of Sabrina on they got to get a peak of it. I also absolutely love that series. I it reminds me a lot of of Buffy the vampire slayer for many reasons, not because the the kind of character arc tightly seeing that are very similar to Buffy, but also in its Campinas, and it's will. Will. And it's more busy. I quite like it. And I liked that it has it kind of has a similar timelessness aspect as rebel does. But Riverdale has kind of more kitchen sink aspect, whereas chilling. Vengeance of Sabrina is very much embedded in the sixty setting of the comic book that it's based on. And I like it a lot. I'm a huge fan of Finally I think I'm only like five episodes in. But I quite like, and I love how vampy everyone is to Michelle. Oh, got her name. Michelle Gomez, for example, who plays Madam Satan is just is so good. And so over the top as well as around auto who just looks fabulous in every scene. So I'm I'm enjoying it. So much the costumes in the show to just so fabulous. And glamorous. And I've also been watching on Netflix Sheva in power. I was never a fan of the visual sheer. I was a little bit before my time. So I didn't really know what to expect going in. But it's from the same creators as avatar the last heir bender. And I can definitely see that echoes a lot of the sort of storyline and narratives avatar less air bender in a good way. And although it kind of takes on the more kind of early dish aspects of avatar, but that's not bad either. I love how complex the characters are especially like all the female characters which it's mostly driven by and also gives me sailor moon Vides as well in that regard, which I which I'm liking. So it's yeah. Definitely like cross teens on my. Favorite animated series. And really empowering an great show. I think for for the demographic that it is a good show in general to there's an episode in like towards the end of the series. That has is really great. And shows this complex mother Nimick that you wouldn't expect to see in a family like children's show. I quite liked it. And I I think that this is this is a great get from Netflix and Shiro and the purchases of power power is on Netflix doesn't FOX. Yes. Yes. Okay. Brad. What have you been watching? I haven't been watching much just because I was so busy finishing my move..
