"Take, though. Is this like Kevin feige flippin birds of people and be like, stop trying to cast my movies, stop trying to bring in things that I do that I'll move with my pace. Only if you're right that's Krasinski is not Reed Richards. If he is not Reed Richards, and they're casting a future Fantastic Four movie that will not. I mean, John watts left that movie. So I don't know what that means, but there is an element to this where it's like professor X and the Fantastic Four, which are essentially if I'm being completely honest, that's why I'm still in the car. Is to get to the Fantastic Four and get to X-Men. Yeah. I like some of this stuff and it's cool, but like I think the TV experience combined with all the other TV that I got to watch has started to make this a little bit less fun. Is it used to be? But I am still like, yo, who's going to be Sue storm? You know what I mean? I still want to know. And there's an element to what happens with the Illuminati, can I say they all get killed? They all get killed. That sequence is great, by the way. I thought that was a lot of fun. And it's like killed by Wanda, who is really at the height of her power. I thought it was like, here's the height of fan service and the gut punch to face. Yeah. I thought that was the cleverest part about it was the just when we offered you something you had been clamoring for months for, we're taking it away from you. In 45 seconds, and they take mad L's. Like they barely, they come in, they're so cocky. And then they smoked by Wanda. I thought that was so fun. Something I've heard and folks listening to this who want the nerdier dive like you'll hear the midnight boys like all the midnight boys were like, oh my God, like they promised the Illuminati and this is what they did with it. And I was like, I never thought we knew the kind of the Illuminati were coming because Patrick Stewart's voice was in the trailer and Brian Michael bendis is tweeting out panels of the Illuminati and like all sorts of like that. But I don't mind that it was sort of like barren gone..

"Open your hearts, loosen your butts. It's time for couples therapy. Yeah, this podcast is Andy and Naomi's where they can both lead to hang but all they hear me talk at excellent vacationing with brunches and cuddling to messy situations and conscious and coupling from Netflix hookups to singled up with some Hulu tech sex regrets so feeling on your new jubu. They gonna talk about it yeah you gonna run by the idiot therapy I guarantee baby weekend. But I will say about that hello everyone and welcome to couples therapy. My name is Andy. I am Naomi. We're a real-life couple. A real life couple of comedians. And on couples therapy, we answer a couple different questions from a couple different listeners. That's how it goes. Now now meet my dear. Yes. And drew my dear, someone sent us in a voicemail question for you, or maybe just a comment, I forget exactly, but I want to play it right here up top. So let's listen to this question. I'm ready. I'm ready. Hey guys. This isn't a question, I guess it's just a comment, but I feel so deeply unsettled when the commercial for Naomi comes on Naomi being some new television show and I'm like, there's only one Naomi here. Again. Just wondering, maybe, any thoughts on that? You find that contract. Love you. Okay, honestly, I feel the way this person feels. Okay, deeply unsettled. Because first of all, you know, Naomi, The CW show. CW, Naomi based on a graphic novel. About a young black woman, I believe she has powers. And I said, why wasn't I called? Why wasn't I called? If not to be the titular character writer, someone whose name Naomi, what can I bring to the table? To be her sassy, probably auntie, 'cause that's probably the age I'm giving off right now. I felt like we've got a shoe called Naomi on the seat a strong black woman, and I wasn't even brought in. Yeah, Brian Michael bendis. When you wrote that, did he write it? I think he wrote it. I think he wrote that. Why did you not think of my dear wife Naomi? Why did you not have love? Naomi, Paragon in mind, when you wrote about a little black girl, you got superpowers. Okay, literally first of all, I should have, first of all, written it, okay? Brian, Michael Benz. I don't need you out here trying to tell my story. Okay, because I would send it. I want to let me was a little black girl with superpowers. And that was getting along with white people. Honestly now you should write your own comment where that is the superpower. That is my superpower. Oh my God, anyway, thank you very much because I also like I'm so jelly, but I am gonna watch it. So I understand exactly where you're coming from. Thank you for asking for my thoughts. So Naomi, another thing, not only do we just get question our voicemail filled with questions about the TV show Naomi. We get, you know, obviously advice questions there. We get comments from listeners who have their own advice for the caller. Yes. And updates. Now, I wanted to so many comments. So many comments. I can't play them all. We got both from Twitter and Instagram DMs and voicemails. From Megan gailey's episode, what was the episode or sasheer? I can't remember exactly. I think it's a sheer. It was the woman in her boyfriend broke up and then the boyfriend ex-boyfriend started dating her neighbor. Her neighbor in her apartment building. Right next door. Right next door. So many comments. Of course. So I'm gonna play a couple of snippets from the comments. Okay. And then I gotta tell you, we got an update from the caller. Okay. Here's a couple of the comments. What about, I don't know, because I don't mean that. But what if you like, I don't know, it's not a fucking hot guy, like a vast hot guy, and brought him back to her place. But like he was in on it, you know? Like, the next time he's over there or whatever, like, I don't know, maybe she comes out of her apartment with some fucking hot guy. It's like, I don't know, like how do you think of that motherfucker? So, okay. Okay. So the advice was get a hot guy. A vax talk guy. And make the ex-boyfriend jealous. Exactly. And whenever he's around, you bring you wield the vax hot guy out right. And be like, what do you think of that? Okay, we love that. That is complicated. That is theater. Motherfucker. All right, here's another snippet. So make them uncomfortable. And if that doesn't work, just choose by list. I'm sure, I don't know how long you did it before. But do you have screenshots something embarrassing, threatening him? Tell him he needs to leave you alone that you're sanctuary. We're in a quarantine. You need to be comfortable in your home. So choose violence. Okay, that person just said, choose violence. And I'm obsessed with them. Because it was just so bold, but also said with such a cheery tone. That it was like, okay. All right, and you can mean it. I think you really mean it. She was violence. Yeah, yeah, blackmail. Blackmail. Honestly, I get him out. Get him out. Here's one more. I had a situation. I did a guy who broke up with me out of the blue with a horrible. And then several months later, he and his dad bought the apartment buildings. I was living in. So then I was having to send my red tracks to my ex-boyfriend's father. It was horrible. I was so pets. Of course, he never reached out directly to tell me that they were doing this or he would respect my space any of that. I was living. And ended up moving out of there buying house and I kind of wanted to buy a house anyway, but I also kind of rushed that a little bit to get away from him. And I hope she doesn't do that. Wow. Wow, wow. That's another level. You pulled a Kevin Arnold. You put your hands on your cheeks and surprise. I gasp. Is that a slave? No, who's the Kevin Arnold's from wonder years? Who's mccallister? Kevin mccallister. Because I was just so shocked. Why are these people out here, his ex and his father bought the building she lived in? That's insane. That's insane. That feels like a Trump thing. Like Trump would do that. You know what I mean? Like they would do that like Eric Trump's exes. You know what I mean? They were just like, buy the building. They lived. It feels like that's a crazy engine never say anything. And then you have to send it rent checks. Oh, my God. Quite honestly though you won. I love that you were able to pivot so quickly to owning property. Okay, someone who's like, you know what, I went from renting to owning because I had to stop. People are really out here being sociopath, auntie. I know. I know they have. It's terrible. Now, let's listen to the update from the original caller. From The O.C. hey guys, this is an update. Thank you so much for playing my question on the air. I was the girl whose ex was fitting her next door neighbor on this show that you guys just played. And yeah, I think this year really hit the nail right on the head when she was talking about power. I just felt like he had so much power over me, but also thank you for dragging him. That was great. I did want to clarify that I did not know who I was living next door to. I'd never met her. We actually I met him and he met her at work. Just in medicine. So I was kind of gross after us. And I didn't know that I was moving in next door to her until I saw her met her in the hallway and then later found out that she was dating her. So obviously, you know, I am biased and don't like him anymore. But he's not quite a psychopath. So I just thought I'd set the record straight in that regard. Overall, I'm doing a lot better. I'm joining a new guy and it turns out time does heal all wounds and also maybe it's colder so he's not coming around as often and they're hanging out at his house, which that's fine. Good riddance. Anyway, thanks so much, you guys. And thanks this year. For the great advice..

"There's a book and there's a, what they call the beat sheet. The book is called, save the cat and it was originally written for screenwriters. But somebody has done it for novelists and for books and basically what it does is it takes every big famous book or movie wage The story and breaks it down into these beats. That are the be? Yeah, exactly. This point Your Heroes. This and you do this before that, and at this point, you have this and off. And what they basically are saying is following these beats doesn't limit you but it gives everybody what they anticipate for a story. What they have internally life stories and it hits all those points at the right time in the right way, and it's a way of analyzing your story, but once you learn it, you can get so creative wage, almost frees you up by having that structure, and they analyze so many movies with this and everything and books too, cuz it's for novelists. But some of the things I've, I'm reading when I think of Highlander on my Kia, they didn't do it here. They did not do this part or, you know, and I can see where for me, I thought the movie was a little weak even well. Is 20 years old and without knowing all of this. So, that's just something. I mean, I don't know if you'd ever want to read the book it's 350 pages, but it's called save the cat home, and you'd probably find a lot of things in Psych. Oh, now I understand why that works. And why? This is so good for this movie or whatever. Yeah, actually it's got, I've not read that book, but I thought these things discussed on proxy for a long time. I, I've often read comic buyer's guide and I've read various different things by comic book writers and absolutely, that's been the parlance the way that people talk about a series and comic books has the story arc. That's been happened to character transformations of Beats and that you try to make sure that every single issue has this many of this kind and it's a an amplification or it's a plot twists. You know this is a quiet moment. This is a battle moment and that it doesn't as you said, it's not a straitjacket, it's not formulaic. But it gives you the ability to say we know this works for people that they want to have things wage To like little climaxes and then back off and move on to the next thing and it's a way of pacing. You mean it would be at a gentler term, there's always been piecing things where you just can you have a train going ninety miles an hour? You happen to have little stops and refreshments and things like that. And so a couple like when, when you comic book writers that are really like, like, Brian Michael Bendis, or or like, Mark Millar or something when they talk about that, that's kind of The Craft of how they do things like and that makes sense. That's why I like them because their sensibility for how to pay something, how to wage sure that there's always something interesting going on, but they they plant a seed of mystery back here and then they work on it. But only a little bit that they actually are very meta conscious of what they're doing while they're doing off and then it makes it a very satisfying read or movie in the ways that you're talking about. So it's very cool. I know you're working on the craft of your writing and I'm I'm glad you found a book like that because that's that sounds wage. Exactly like what other people whose work. I really like in the dryer and enjoy that. It's leading you down, all the good path. So we are saved the cap. I would like to read because I like knowing about those jobs will workings of things, you know. So, very cool..

"The thirty first century are back with John can't the new super boy in an ongoing series by Brian Michael Bendis Brian shook it's all of doctor bolts okay well here is the man the myth the legend is Sean Patrick means he is the culture writer and the film critic who works for the Salt Lake Tribune you can read his writings at SL trip but dot com but it's all collected for your convenience movie reviews and the like at his website which is movie cricket dot net hi Shawna reviews of many many more movies there than you'll read in the paper not this week not this week this week most of my stuff is an S. of her back all right yeah but usually you'll find it all and more and movie critic dot net what we got in the arts is there's only one really and but it's the biggest the Irishman considered an artsy okay yeah well it's plain to Prague weights playing at the megaplex and now it opens it opens at theaters today and then next Wednesday debuts on Netflix okay because they paid for it such a weird model it is an interesting model and and I mean it opened first the month American alliance on but it's yeah it is a mystery model this is Martin Scorsese doing what he does best which is dissecting the world of mobsters and gangster's and in this case through the eyes of Frank Sheeran who is who starts out as a a a truck a trucker who then gets under the wing of a Philadelphia mobster played by Joe Pesci the fracture is played by Robert deniro and it spans the story spans like decades of the lives of these guys and then share and was basically a front row seat to a lot of history because he through the through the mob connections he became a confidante and go up and bodyguard to Jimmy Hoffa the okay the long time a leader of the teamsters union who kids out there don't know disappeared mysteriously nineteen seventy five and was never seen again and the Hoffa had lot of mob boss I had mob ties and and this is about that and you see so much history through through this through the through these guys a story and in such a such instantly passive way and it is really it becomes sort of a look at thinking about death and there's a there's a running sort of gag where every time you see a new character free the the frame freezes for a second and you get a little attacks on the screen saying it explaining how each of these characters died some of them you know old age of prostate cancer most of them cement shoes several boards and on their on their porch it is this is three and a half hours it is worth the effort is worth it is worth the investment okay it almost seems like it be better though on Netflix just watch it it worked so maybe like in a poll that's what works I mean it it should be seen on the big screen and and and and and you owe yourself that and and to just let the sweep of it sort of hit you but it but it's we're says he who of course always think three steps ahead ourselves in such a way that it's a very intimate epic and there's a lot of close up okay lot close ups and saw that it will work on a smaller screen as well and and and you can binge watch it and you know the real guy I mean he's gone and and the quite and and there's it's questionable how much what he says actually happened button in this in this setting in this context it's fast things start it is the best American movie at night he's gone and and the quite and and there's it's questionable how much what he says actually happened button in this in this setting in this context it's fast things start it is the best American movie of two thousand nineteen wow so far I mean we saw that was about a month ago but this this is gonna be tough to be four stars all right four stars for the Irishman let's go to the fourth season twenty one bridge on bridges on the opposite end of the spectrum this is a very violent please add police thriller set in New York you see two guys going after cocaine stash and winding up shooting a whole bunch of cops the in Brookline and then and then high tail it into Manhattan the detective was put on the case played by Chadwick Boseman says shut it down close every bridge in it and you know that all twenty one bridges and all the titles and everything else and don't let anybody out of Manhattan basically for overnight until we get these guys as we as we as he gets into the case realizing that you know what what these guys are doing is one thing but then also that this corrupt cops around and this movie is so heavy handed is basically when the first time you see a major character it's almost like he walks up to you and says hi I'll be your dirty cop for this evening okay it is it is really awful also one of the call twenty one bridge because of the bridge's around Manhattan all one and a half stars all right now let's get on to this one everyone wants to be the one you want to hear about that Mister Rogers is to know first off are frozen to okay this is the Disney sequel there's some people said you know we've been frozen was perfect in and of itself who needs a sequel that is true you didn't really need to go but you got one so what the heck and this one is actually really good it yet it deepens the story between Anna and Elsa else we keep hearing of what a mysterious voice calling her to go north and discover things that involve her origin story and why she has magic power why she has doesn't okay and it if the songs are nice they're not as cordon there's no single song that you know beats you know let it go for a year or so it's hard to be the for the best song is actually Jonathan Groff as Kristoff as I am as boyfriend he had he has a he has a sad song that is presented like an eighties power ballad that is so funny it's wonderful all right if you like the first one you're gonna love this one so to a three and a half now now the one I want to know now that when Mister Rogers my beautiful day in the neighborhood this starts out you see Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers as Fred Rogers and it starts out with like the the typical opening of an episode of his show where he comes and takes out the blazer puts on the card again what does the does the chute toss does this you toss the and all that and yet you're worried at first because you know you're right you're worried that okay this is going to run your child or something but then then you know Tom Hanks won national fair treasure playing another national treasure this truth in it if it works and and but he's not the lead he's not the main focus of the story and he is he is the the catalyst for what the main actor or the main person does that a person is is a magazine reporter who has been assigned to do an assignment on on Mister Rogers okay for esquires issue about heroes and miss Rogers the this this this reporter played by Matthew Rees who you would although from the Americans mostly K. he he's very cynical very jaded journalist and he gets the assignment for Mister Rogers because everybody else was being profiled the magazine didn't want him I don't want that guy interviewing me but Fred did and and the the reporter you know he's got stuff going on his life he's a new dad he's dealing with that issue and bemoan partly he has a very straight eight estranged relationship with his own father owned and Mister Rogers clues in on this and and becomes almost like a therapist for the guy I heard you see where the reporter guy says to Mister Rogers wait a minute who's interviewing who yeah right right what's going on and and this this friendship developed and what is fascinating about it is by by setting up in the in the mode of Mister Rogers absurd I mean you you get had either first or gives you Hanks's your portrayal will perfect unity he it's it's not it's more than impersonation it's more a personification of of of just the sort inner goodness amount but also help sort of slow you down to two Mister Rogers pace in outlet is the same no matter what yeah he's he's he's he's like a metronome he has always the same the same base and we and the world her needs to for a minute sort of go downhill slow down to his level so you can just sort of sit and appreciate and enjoy yeah but we got commercials compelling yeah is this is this is lovely my favorite my favorite tricking thing is that is that every establishing shot is done as a like diorama like on the of of of New York and hence burger whatever well I I heard an interview the director and she said we change the we change the story really yes of the journalist is a true story but we changed his background is I think it's a fictionalized version of of of a true true about our friendship between came a lifelong they became lifelong friends and I think you spoke to Mister Rogers funeral yeah Steph says to search out the GQ article and then also have that's as far as well as scores are in she says it's just fascinating the three and a half about three and a half for beautiful day in the neighborhood all right let's run these down quickly the Irishman four stars one and a half for twenty one bridges.
