"I i can definitely say that. None of them are kids. Who are under the age of maybe fifteen years old at a minimum. Boom tomahawk Movie that i loved and also would not watch with my wife because she is a bit skittish when it comes to the violence bone tomahawk is definitely not skittish when it comes to the violence So how should i should conservatives think about things like that it seems to me that hollywood owns the space because conservative the space and so instead of being so Instead of being so puritan about the kind of stuff that people watch we should just acknowledge what people watching and compete in that space. I think if you look at a traditional hollywood conservative. You're going back to the seventies and eighties. I think they liked a lot of movies. That were pretty violent. Command all the schwarzenegger movies stallone. Rambo going back to the seventy s even with the godfather. These are great movies. And i just think that that audience has been forgotten right now as as we bring them back into the fold of watching movies. I think that there is always going to be a skepticism right. Conservative movies tend to be to to to sort of overtly political or they tend to have sort of a quality of writing. That just isn't competitive. Let's fix that right. Bring them back into the fold now in terms of the violence. Keep in mind. I was making movies. That would go through traditional hollywood distributor for vod and have no marketing so the movies themselves worthy marketing. And so i think most of the movies i was making were were that violent because i needed a hook right needed a an inflection point or something to go viral And also just just the the filmmakers that i was attracted to and continue to be attracted to their work You know happened to be that and and let's be honest processing the death of my parents. You know the deaths of my parents. So i think if you look at my body of work ten years from now i think it will level out a little bit in terms of the violence but in terms of the conservative audience. Give it a chance. It's it's there's always a level of provocation and entertainment any movie but the it's the violence in our movies is almost clinical in its realistic and commitment to authenticity so walk. We're no different in many ways than almost sort of a documentarian in that sense. But i look forward to seeing you know. Everyone's reaction because yeah. It's very violent violent movies. And i mean i think that this is. This is part of the general appeal. That consumers are going to have to understand is younger people. And that is the younger. People are used to a certain level with edginess and violence and pushing the envelope and the stuff that they watch. And so if we're gonna make this move over daily wire into the entertainment field. We wanna be pushing the envelope. We wanna be arguing in favor of why seventeen or eighteen. Twenty one year olds should be watching our stuff you know. There's lots of great material over at hallmark channel. But that's not exactly what we're seeking to do. We're seeking to do is reach out to audiences who have opened up to hollywood experience. Because they're looking for edgy. Cool interesting suspenseful. I and and drunk people when they're young is the way that you're gonna eventually dissuade them from entering the culture war on the other side. That's absolutely right. I think two things on that front one The millennial generation will ultimately slow through the advertising demographic the eighteen to thirty four that will take time and ultimately the pendulum always swings back right. So i think if we look at the early data on gen z. And gen alpha and the younger generation. I think they're going to push back on some of the general sort of stereotypical millennial reactions behavior. So i have a a hope for our children. If you look at history tends to repeat itself and hollywood in the late nineteen sixties was in the toilet right there. They were making these giant war. Epics with you know And musicals and it was all falling flats. It was relevance an income. The new hollywood. In the late latest sixties earliest seventies and they arguably created some of the best movies in the world. You know all the filmmakers scorsese coppola spielberg to palma Dennis hopper Peter bogdonovich all. Those guys certain weight. But there were a couple of producers that helped launch this movement and they're they're called the bbs skies. Bob rae burke schneider and st bladder and they ushered in this new generation by producing easy rider and five easy pieces. Those movies appealed to a younger audience. That was sick of the the mainstream nonsense. That hollywood was putting out at the time so i really want to take a page from their playbook and sort of reinvent this youthful vibrant hollywood movie-making which appeals to a younger audience. That simply isn't interested in.

"Okay so the first story. This week is Scorsese first off felt compelled to write a very long. Was it an op Ed or an open letter in the New York Times explaining his thoughts on superhero movies in more detail which I thought was really nice of him and it was a very nuanced detailed response but we also had an article this week I did not realize that Scorsese himself self had almost directed the joker I didn't realize that that was a part of the I missed that somehow which just goes further to say that like. It's so funny. How like radically the story has changed? Like Scorsese gives a very nuanced thorough. Answer about like oh well. I'm not really interested in what's going on with superhero movies. It's not for me but the Internet is like he superhero movies. motherfucker almost directed one motherfucker. Spent years prepping one. He clearly thought a lot about it and decided it wasn't his wheelbase. And you know what I loved so much about it. He's answer when he talked about why he eventually pass on. The joker was one hundred percent character based. And you know we we all talk about these amazing tracking shots. Scorsese we all talk about these beautiful performances of course as we all talk about like the beautiful images. He's crafted when he's talking about whether whether or not he wants to commit to directing a movie or not all. He talked about his character and for him he was like it was a really interesting script. It was repulsive script but when the character turned into a cartoon into a comic book character. I couldn't engage enough to feel. I'm paraphrasing a little bit. But like he couldn't engaged enough to continue through the process so as much as we think about about all of the reasons why someone might make movie or all of the reasons that people are excited about movies. I like one of the most signature visual directors in cinema history. It is one hundred percent of character. Decision Scorsese moved on from that movie because he couldn't fully engaged with the character wants the character became more two dimensional at the end of the the script and I was like. Yeah that is totally while you pass on a project if you can't stay with the character as a director that's like the best reason the world to pass on it and I thought it was a really interesting things like the The New York Times op. Ed is getting a lot of the attention because he gives a very nuance dancer about what is happening in this industry and what he wishes it it looked like more but I also really liked him discussing in a separate article why he passed on joker. I thought it was a real insight and his process and yeah. Let's I'll give give a little give a little context so there's two stories up on no film. SCHOOL DOT COM one covering a wide scorsese pass on the joker and how he developed it the other covering this this big op Ed. He wrote in The New York Times that I think went out yesterday and we got this step as quickly as we could. And it's up on the site. People are talking about it all over the place. Look when Scorsese see. I made this comment. I think in Empire magazine. I could be wrong. There was a lot of backlash and a lot of memes and a lot live commentary and a lot of arguing and then who's what cinema. What isn't cinnamon we even covered on the podcast? Right and around the same time the joker was popping like it it really came into the PR things ramped up in the joker was released and that was a big deal and that was a huge story within the community. And obviously like we said Scorsese direct joker and he prepped it. But there's so much scorsese in that movie it's his presence looms large large and this gives us more insight as to why but I think what you say. That's interesting to point out again is. Is that his answer for why he didn't continue with. Joker is also his problem with comic book movies and Marvel Movies as he calls. And let's let's say he says Marvel but he's really talking about comic book movies. He's talking about franchises tent. Poles existing. Ip being resurrected like to whatever you know to some success or like this last weekend with Terminator Dark Fate Not so much success. But he's talking about how the theaters have become a place where it's boomer bust in terms of box office and the best way to do that right now is by by using some really popular. Ip like something from Marvel and he's talking about how that's not the cinema. He grew up loving. Or what how he defines cinema. or the kind of filmmaking. He wants to do and I just think the thing that the thing. That's so important to point out. In my opinion Nyon about all of this is that and I think Martin Scorsese is well aware of this. But Martin Scorsese came of age at very unique time as a filmmaker and for a little while there after the collapse of the studio system in the late sixty s through really through star wars which ushered in this new blockbuster era jaws star wars and that's right when Scorsese really developed the director filmmaker and their. Pov was a selling point behind a a major release that has not been the case for most directors in most of the history of moviemaking right. Yeah writers indirect or Right Right Scorsese is actually and his his cohorts Coppola Spielberg and Lucas. Even though they're part of the blockbuster thing the people of of that era the one who fell off or more like the Bogdonovich. I'm forgetting his Michael. Cimino but Donna which would defend that. He's still working interviews movies every year. So let's say he probably is right for all we know he could be making ten movies and they could all be on Hulu blue and we wouldn't know right. I mean point remaining just a point being that yes as you just said something really well. It wasn't true before that period read. It hasn't been true after that period. And Martin Scorsese belongs to that period so when he talks to us and I I hate to bring up the buzz phrase but the okay boomer thing that's going around is like he's part of a very unique spot in time that is unlike all other filmmaking generations where it was no no. We don't really care what a writers point of view is no. We don't really care to director like we care about a star or we care about a property or we care about a franchise. That's that's how movies get made most of the time Scorsese's is a Unicorn and he's a he's amazing and he special and we love that era. But let's be real in a sense like I wish it was always like that. But it's not an and it's not normally well except I think he's also lamenting a little bit that we've moved into a space where it is viewed the those interesting things because we all know where those interesting things are. Those interesting things are on television. And I think he's very legitimately Mitsui Lamenting that. He's like no no interesting. Things on eighty foot screens is great. And I think it's a hundred very much driven by like no you guys. Have you been in the theater with four hundred people watching something really fascinating and different eights awesome and he's totally right and I do think that there is a it's funny because I'm I'm lucky enough to have only to live most of my adult life in Los Angeles and New York and in Los Angeles and New York. There's always one or two movie theatres you know. And then there's the Alamo chain nationwide asian-wide that manager so a big wide variety of crazy shit so the like you know we. We spend a year in St Louis. Love Saint Louis but like it was harder to see some of of our favorite movies in theaters. Although there was a theater in the central west end where they had little pleats candy held by ushers. When you left and I'm fucking love that place I just wanted to say on that point though real quick? If you've never seen a movie like like I'm also being in L. A.. Another really fortunate thing about a revival. Oh House like before Tarantino took over the new beverly. They used to just play all manner of old movies. Father or they do but it's it's more scored of skews towards his his theater. So it's going to be. You're not like I saw the godfather there. I saw Chinatown there. I saw last picture show. They're not to mention like Maltese. Falcon and all that have like a double feature or a solemn via you see you. Can you can see everything on the big screen with an audience of people who love the movie and I gotTa say like you just said you can experience a twelve angry men in a theater. It's amazing and you're not gonNA that's I I. One hundred percent agree. That what Martin. Scorsese is. Lamenting is sort of a different sort of issue than what I was talking about. which is how movies get made? But but what kind of movies get made there aren't really dramas or it's just a shame. They're all those kinds of. There's so many things that like. I I love secession so much but like so good. A three and a half hour additive. Secession that was shown in a movie theater and I could be with like four hundred and fifty people and then at the end we could go burned down a millionaire's yacht like how satisfying would that have been and you know. We knew. Imagine laughing with the crowd at some of the Tom and greg kind of mom. Oh my God yeah with fifty people in the audience shouting. No Greg don't do it. Don't do it when he was about to read the papers like that kind of big communal thing is I think he sort of hitting on something is like fundamental to being human which is as long as there's been theater as long as there's been storytelling we've even enjoyed watching. These stories be told in big groups at least to the Greek theater. Amphitheater like being with four hundred other people. People watching a story together and reacting to it as a group is such a powerful sensation and so I think a little bit. He laments the fact that right now and I actually don't think this is permanent. I just think at the moment. Most theaters are full with very spectacle driven movies. And that is like. That's a legitimate laments and I get his frustration with that. I actually suspect that the pendulum keep swinging around wild directions. Like Alamo does so well you know what I mean and there are so many interesting I want to hear more. What what else makes you think that because then all kind of counterpoint? That but I want to hear more of if you're like optimistic your hope for the future I could use a little bit of that. I mean my for the furniture is just always. That anytime like monocultures. Tend to fuck them you. You know the Irish potato famine was at least partially because everyone got really into making one type of potato and then all of the sudden when that type of potato got potato blight light everybody starved because they were too into one type of potato. I think we see that over means you mean growing one time not like they were all French fries in preparation Zsa just to clarify but yes but kind of crop if it was nineteen seventy eight and you're like well you know. I really love like my niece soda. The Local Soda Fountain. And and I'm so bummed everybody's drinking Pepsi and Coke many people in nineteen seventy eight. We're like yeah but that's just how it is there's Pepsi and Coke in my family had RC Cola. And that was it but like literally right. Now I can't remember the last time I saw Pepsi..

"Hundred percent gluten-free Dawson herald radio. Back. Stop. You know, there's not to be anybody hosting the Oscars. We know the whole Kevin Hart story, it's very upsetting to Christian. We're going. He hasn't gotten over it. Are you have you looked over the list? Are you rooting for anybody? Are you? This is the first time Hillary that I'm not into it. I don't know. I mean this movie slump. I mean. Yeah. Love movies of the nominated films. I saw black klansman and vice I haven't seen the other seven normally around this time, I would have seen every nominated film every nominated actor I'll catch up. But normally when the list comes out, which is like the Tuesday morning at like, eight forty five I'm like glued to the TV like waiting to see who's getting nominated last year was like after lunch, and I'm like, oh, yeah. That's right. The Oscar nominations came out this morning. Look see what they were. So up course watched the show. I wish they had a host which kind of us did it. I just like the one that the whole rigmarole impacted your. I mean, obviously, you already sort of weren't watching movies as much. We'll fact that in. But do you think that the Kevin Hart? Now, I'm really not a big fan of Kevin Hart. I respect them. I mean, hard working guy. But if it was Ben. Chris rock or Bill Maher or someone else that I really really like, then I would obviously be more interested in that. But. Seth macfarlane. It's always great as a host the guy could sing he could host. He can do voices amuses very talented guy. But normally you'd have the host as part of the process during the morning of the nominations. So there's there's none of that this year because there's no host. But yeah, no, I don't think that impacts me. It's just I I've just gone into this movie slump. I don't know what happened. Therapist at this point to get me back out to the into the spirit of that is a common reason people usually decide to up and start going to think. So. Yeah. Yeah. I haven't been to the movies. What? Maybe they'll just tell me to re up my movie. This is the part of the reason the movie pass kind of big. Yeah. Because I was paying ten dollars a month and yet unlimited movies, which that's crazy. Good to be true. Yeah. But now it's like it's ten dollars a month. And you can only use it three times in a month. And it has to be certain movies at certain times. It's like, that's why canceled it I think AMC. Our lows is coming out with a movie club for twenty bucks a month unlimited movies. I think that's great because all you really need to do is go twice to pay for it. The cost of movies now, although I like to go like on a Saturday morning around eleven thirty. It's like seven bucks to go. See a movie, and then I go grab lunch afterwards. It's like old man thing to do. I don't care at all about Kevin Hart. But, but I will say that this whole rigmarole has made me want to watch the Oscars less or has deterred me from really caring as much about this year's Oscars. I mean, then again, I don't really care for assessment Farland either. So maybe I, you know, Billy, crystal back. I mean, Bill was great. They don't have a I don't have a favorite. I sorta light Ricky all the people were so crazy about it that that made it tough cringe, but Australia isn't necessarily exactly that's that's the issue is that. Anyway. Yeah. So I mean, I don't know there's something about certainly I maybe I've just maybe I have indeed thought more about the outskirts, but then the idea of the Oscars without a host sounds just not that good to me. No. And then when it comes to the when it comes to the the actual nominations. I maybe that's I think that's factoring in in my room sort of random annoyance with the whole situation. If you haven't really seen the movies. I mean like Romo got a lot of nominations. I guess it's brilliant. I do want to see it. But I haven't right. So there's part of me. I didn't even see Black Panther which I'm ashamed to say. Because I. Yeah. I mean, I saw black lines. When I thought was really good news. Good to see Spike Lee, finally get nominated for best director, you've never been nominated for best director before as a black klansman was very very good. Vice I was not impressed. What I knew it was going to get a lotta Oscar nominations led by Christian bale and some of the other movies. I'm just going to have to get out and see what normally they'll do is the lows in Boston common the Saturday and Sunday before the Oscars they'll have all nine films available. I like I don't want to spend an entire day sitting there watching three movies. But if they're spaced out enough, you know, you can watch one go grab coffee, whatever come back watch the second and go back out grab lunch or dinner and make it I've seen three movies at a movie theater in a day. I I can pull that off after that. That's it. I mean, I don't know how someone sits there for twenty four straight hours watches, unless it's, you know, a movie level off. Right. Locked but yes, I'll try to catch. Up on that stuff. But there's like, and there's also like I have my favorite directors and actors, right? None of them are really there. Martin Scorsese did make a movie this year. Right. So I generally always see Martin Scorsese films wanna see him win these awards because I think he's the best director of our. Of all time up there. Of the last thirty forty years. I mean, he's he Kubrick Coppola Spielberg pick whoever you want. Yeah. There's not even a Spielberg film, which is kind of good. I mean, you just don't want to have the same five directors forward with five great woman. You know, it's good that we've expanded into other with more types of talent. I'll probably going to root for black klansman because I think spike Lee's a very accomplished director. And it'd be pretty cool if you won best director, but Roma is going to win a lot of the awards. Oh, that's interesting. Yeah. I mean, I'm looking at supporting actress, and I can't see. Who is clear favourite is. But apparently, maybe it's the Roma Yemen. Yeah. I think that's going to happen. And also stars born I missed. Yeah. I wanna see and I've heard so beloved in some people said, right? And I'd have to say after Z Golden Globes performance. Or lack of I should say that doesn't seem like it's on the up and up the other issue, of course, being unfortunate for for bohemian rhapsody. But that situation with the director and the smear campaign coming out. That's that's probably going to be thrown into the mix. When it comes to voting on stuff that happened to Lincoln six years ago. Yeah. I thought Lincoln was gonna win best picture. And I thought it was the best movie of twenty twelve but then down the stretch before the votes were cast. There were reports that some of it was fabricated. And I'm like, I'm cool with that. Because it's a drama, right? You know, it's not a documentary way that Connecticut voted that weren't perceived in the movie, and I'm like, okay, great. This is not a documentary. Steven Spielberg, not a documentarian. He's a great director. Look over it up. Argo won that year, which I thought Lincoln was. Yeah. I liked Argo as well. But that was the first movie in a couple of decades that won best picture without its director even being nominated Affleck wasn't even nominated right? I think driving mistakes he was the last one before that nineteen eighty nine which won best picture, but. Nominated for best director. I don't know what nightmare had to happen in order for crash to win best picture. That was the biggest surprise ever. It was the worst movie. I it so much. I agree. It was so like cliche outright and terrible. It was I think it was well acted Diller only thought it wasn't. It wasn't well acted. And it's I think that some BS happened that year something some sort of weird campaign and people ended up reporting on it. I think because it was such like, I mean, I don't think everybody hated it as much as I do. I I was like really an even if you liked it on Astra worthy, especially in a year. I thought Brokeback mountain was better. There were so many thought Munich. Was a great great movie. But I knew that wasn't going to win because Spielberg actually, you know. In that movie. He he didn't turn it into a black and white argument. Some feathers by for those because he made the Palestinians, look human. And that was a major blow back. I thought that was a brilliant film. I think that's one of his most underrated films, but I knew that wasn't going to win. But when crash was announced his best picture. I'm like really it was awful awful. I really I'd say I lost some faith in. I could not understand. I really couldn't. And I think I was in. I spent probably more time than I should have trying to figure out why take days off back that. Well, you know, the extensive the extensive yarn and push pin chart that is now on my, you know, basement wall and smoke filled room of me trying to get to the bottom of poster of crashed with darts in it. You try to tear it. Oftentimes, you'll look back and say how does that win best picture over this other one that sometime later, right tons. That's what happens choice. I also think that there was some. Discussion about them. Having a better hype man, or you know, what I mean, better averick campaign within the academy to push for their film that happens. I can't remember which one it was. But it was definitely like one of those two because because it was the worst movie ever. And what the bleep is all I could think of. You can make that case that that's the worst best picture ever. I mean, I sat through the movie, I think I sat through it at the theater, which is doubly bad. And it was just us. So annoyed because it was just wrote. It was like everything you're being beaten over the head with come on ready. No, not a big fan of that movie. At all, I just didn't think it was worthy of being an Oscar winner. And look when Scorsese finally won his Oscar departed best director best picture. I love the movie a lot. But it's not as not as best movie. I mean, raging bull taxi driver means training felons right training day. Yeah. I mean, Al Pacino won best actor for scent of a woman. I can tell you six to eight Pacino. But it was just it's kind of like a lifetime achievement award. Okay. This guy is obviously a great actor deserves an Oscar. Okay. Let's give it to him now. And that happens sort of okay with that. I just find especially an actor that same with same with Scorsese, or for example, Spike, Lee, right? I mean, hopefully sounds even like that. The black klansman is is actually good stuff. So that's good and Denzel Washington son is in it is really good job. He's not quite as talented as Denzel is an actor. But then again, there's not many. There are no it was funny. You know, there's a lot of movies out there that are basically action movies with Denzel. My husband put one on over the weekend just on cable, whatever just happened to be on. And it was funny. I was like, oh, how did you decide on this? And he said, well, he said that. He said that action movies with Denzel tend to be at least slightly better than the other action move because it's so good. Yeah. And and look he's like man on fire. Right. Was you know, it was acceptable because at Denzel Washington because he's he's one of the few actors. That's a great actor Anna star, the charisma and he pulls it off. He has pulled off. There's just not a lot of actors like that mean the great actors that I grew up with. Pacino deniro Hoffman Nicholson, they were a little bit different. They were really actors, whereas Denzel Washington is an a great actor. But he's also got that star charisma that you just don't see very often. You don't movie I could watch again. And again is it's inside job. Right. That was basically inside job. I believe so it was a straight. I mean, it was not normal, Spike Lee. And that's what made it so. Yes, exactly. The sort of like, the David Lynch movie straight story. Yup. Exactly surprised. It was amazing movie. I loved it. And I I I mean, it's not even most people like probably don't think it's much to note about, but I don't know. I really liked it. I especially liked it. Because like Jodi foster is. Not trying to be any sort of social Justice. You know what I mean? Know what I mean? She's just being Jodie Foster. She plays us really wealthy sort of weird. Character that I that was sort of really interesting and cool, and then also Kleiber love Clive Owen, so actor, and there's a really cool shot actually that that Spike Lee has win at one point inside. The Bank Denzel has been trying to navigate this whole hostage situation. And he hears a shot and basically believes that somebody is shot and killed in a Bank. And there's this tracking shot. I don't know if it's tracking shot only know is that Spike Lee shows Denzel moving, but it's all blurred. All you see is Denzel face and you see a bunch right behind him. If you remember the scene I'm talking about. And it was it definitely reminded me of when you get the news that something is huge has happened that impacts you, and it changes everything. And you that that sort of seeing that shot where very much sort of?.

"Stop. You know, there's not going to be anybody hosting the Oscars. We know the whole Kevin Hart story, it's very upsetting Christian. We're going. He hasn't gotten over it.

But if it was Ben Chris rock or Bill Maher or someone else that I really really like, then I would obviously be more interested in that. But like Seth MacFarlane. It's always great as a host. The guy could sing he could host. He can do voices just a very talented guy. But normally you'd have like the host as part of the process during the morning of the nominations.

I sorta liked Ricky as all the people were so crazy about it that that made it tough cringe. But. Isn't necessarily. Exactly, that's that's the issue is that. Anyway. Yeah. So I mean, I don't know there's something about certainly I maybe I've just maybe I have indeed thought more about the Oscars. But then the idea of the Oscars without a host sounds just not that good to me. No. And then when it comes to the when it comes to the the actual nominations. Maybe that's I think that's factor in in my room sort of random annoyance with the whole situation. If you haven't really seen the movies. I mean like Romo got a lot of nominations. I guess it's brilliant. I do want to see it. Right. But I haven't. So there's part of me. I I didn't even see Black Panther which I'm ashamed to say. Because I. Yeah. I mean, I saw black klansman. I thought was really good. It was good to see Spike Lee finally get nominated for best directly never been nominated for best director before as black Landsman was very very good. Vice I was not impressed. What I knew it was going to get a lot of Oscar nominations led by Christian bale and some of the other movies. I'm just gonna have to get out and see what normally they'll do is the lows in Boston common the Saturday and Sunday before the Oscars they'll have all nine films available. I like I don't want to spend an entire day sitting there watching three movies. But if they're spaced out enough, you know, you can watch one go grab coffee, whatever come back watch the second. Go back out grab lunch and dinner and make it I've seen three movies at a movie theater in a day. I I can pull that off after that. That's it. I mean, I don't know how someone sits there for twenty four straight hours watches, unless it's, you know, a movie level off. Right. Locked but I'll try to catch. Up on that stuff. But there's and there's also like I have my favorite directors and actors, right? None of them are really there. That's another thing. Like Martin Scorsese did make a movie this year. Right. So I generally always see Martin Scorsese films and want to see him win these awards because I think he's the best director of our time up there of of the last thirty forty years. I mean, he's he Kubrick Coppola Spielberg pick whoever you want. There's not even a Spielberg film, which is kind of good. I mean, you just don't want to have the same five director's coming forward with five. Great good that we've expanded into other with more types of talent. I'll probably going to root for black klansman because I think spike Lee's a very accomplished director. And it'd be pretty cool if you won best director, but I Roma is going to win a lot of the awards. Oh, that's interesting. Yeah. I mean, I'm looking at supporting actress, and I can't see. Who had clear favourite? But apparently, maybe it's the Roma Yemen. Yeah. I think that's going to happen. And also a star is born I missed. Yeah. Which I wanna see and I've heard saga loved it. And some people said right, and I'd have to say after Z Golden Globes performance or lack of I should say that doesn't seem like it's on the up and up the other issue, of course, being unfortunate for for bohemian rhapsody. But that situation with the director and the smear campaign coming out. That's that's probably going to be thrown into the mix. When it comes to voting on stuff that happened to Lincoln six years ago. Yeah. Thought Lincoln was going to win best picture. And I thought it was the best movie of two thousand twelve but then down the stretch before the votes were, you know? Cast the reports that some of it was fabricated. And I'm like, I'm cool with that. Because it's a drama, right? You know, it's not a documentary. A certain way that Connecticut voted that were perceived in the movie, and I'm like, okay, great. This is not a documentary. Steven Spielberg, not a documentarian. He's a great director look over it Argo won that year, which I thought Lincoln was back. Yeah. I liked Argo as well. But that was the first movie in a couple of decades that won best picture without its director. Even being nominated Affleck wasn't even right. I think driving miss daisy was the last one before that nineteen Eighty-nine which won best picture, but. Nominated for best director. I don't know what nightmare had to happen in order for crash to win best picture that was the biggest surprise ever. It was the worst movie. I. So much so like cliche trite an terrible. It was. I think it was well acted Matt Dillon. I thought it wasn't. It wasn't well acted. And I think that some BS happened that year something some sort of weird campaign and people ended up reporting on it. I think because it was such like, I mean, I don't think everybody hated it as much as I do. I I was like really an even if you like on the especially in the year, I thought Brokeback mountain was better. There were so many thought Munich. Was a great great movie. But I knew that wasn't going to win because Spielberg actually. In that movie. He he didn't turn it into a black and white argument Iraq, golden feathers by. Yeah. Those because he made the Palestinians, look human, and that was a major blow back. I thought that was a brilliant film. I think that's one of his most underrated films, but I knew that wasn't going to win. But when crash was announced as best picture. I'm like really it was awful awful. I really I will say I lost some faith in late. I could not understand. I really couldn't. And I think I was in. I spent probably more time than I should have trying to figure out like take days off that. Well, the extensive. The extensive yarn and push pin chart that is now on my, you know, basement wall and smoke filled room of me trying to get to the bottom of it poster of crashed with darts in it. Try to tear it. I oftentimes you'll look back and say, geez. How does that win? Best picture over this other one. Viner right tons. That's what happens choice. I also think that there was some discussion about them. Having a better hype man, or you know, what I mean, better average campaign within the academy to push for their film that happens. Remember, which one it was? But it was definitely like one of those two because because it was the worst movie ever. And what the bleep is only could think of. To make that case that that's the worst best picture ever. I mean, I sat through the movie I think sat through it at the theater, which is doubly bad. And it was just so annoyed because it was just wrote. It was like everything you're being beaten over the head with come on already. No, not a big fan of that movie. At all, I just didn't think it was worthy of being an Oscar winner. And look when he finally won his Oscar departed best director best picture. I love the movie a lot. But it's not as not as best movie. I mean, raging bull taxi driver means training fellas right there. Yeah. I mean, Al Pacino won best actor for scent of a woman. I can tell you six to eight Pacino better. It's kind of like a lifetime achievement award. Okay. This guy's obviously a great actor deserves an Oscar. Okay. Let's give it to him. Now. And that happens, I'm sort of okay with that. I just find especially an actor that grains, same with same with Scorsese. Or for example, Spike, Lee, right? Right. I mean, hopefully, it sounds even like that. The black klansman is is actually good stuff. So that's good and Denzel Washington son is in it. Oh, that's really good job. He's not quite as talented as Denzel is an actor. But then again, there's not many it was funny. You know, how there's a lot of movies out there that are basically action movies with Denzel. My husband put one on over the weekend just on cable, whatever just happened to be on. And it was funny. I was like, oh, how did you decide on this? And he said, well, he said. He said that action movies with Denzel tend to be at least slightly better than the other action move. Yeah. Because it's so good. Yeah. And and look he's like man on fire. Right. Was you know, it was acceptable because it Denzel Washington 'cause he's he's one of the few actors. That's a great actor Anna star. He's got the charisma and he pulls it off. He has pulled off. There's just not a lot of actors like that the great actors that I grew up with. Pacino deniro Hoffman Nicholson, they were a little bit different. They were really act tours. Whereas Denzel Washington is a great actor. But he's also got that star charisma that you just don't see very often. You don't movie I could watch again. And again is it's inside job. Right. That was basically inside job. I believe so it was a straight. I mean, it was not normal, Spike Lee. And that's what made it. So I just exactly the sort of like the David Lynch movie straight story. Yup. Exactly surprised that it was amazing movie. I loved it. And I I I mean, it's not even most people probably don't think it's much to note about, but I don't know. I really liked it is especially liked it. Because like Jodi foster is. Not trying to be any sort of social Justice. You know what I mean? She's just being Jodie Foster. She plays. This really wealthy sorta weird. The character that I that was sort of really interesting and cool, and then also Kleiber I love Clive Owen. So factor, and there's a really cool shot actually that that Spike Lee has win at one point inside the Bank. You know, Denzel has been trying to navigate this whole hostage situation. And he hears a shot and basically believes that somebody is shot and killed her Bank. And there's this tracking shot. Now. I don't know if it's tracking shot only know is that Spike Lee, she does Denzel moving, but it's all blurred. All you see is denzel's face and you see a bunch right behind him. If you remember the scene I'm talking about. And it was it definitely reminded me of when you get the news that something is huge has happened that impacts you, and it changes everything. And you that that sort of seeing that shot where very much sort of? It's like everything is going super fast and everything is suddenly start still at the same time, and it sort of reflected that really, yeah. No. I mean, Spike Lee is a fabulous director resent so many good things with Denzel Washington, Malcolm X, obviously is is the one that comes to mind first. But yeah, you just you look at spike do the right thing and. Best movie that sorta stuff came at a time. I think that's just it like its impact on the movie business was huge. And it it it made an impact for so many different reasons, I feel like, and that's why I think like he's why people would want, you know, obviously in general say he deserves an Oscar just commercials, which of course, have nothing to do with the Academy Awards. But his commercials were great with Michael Jordan in the eighties. Those those were his he'd be in them. He directed them. Funny. I think I remember. Mars blackmon. He played block Mars Blackmon and a lot of those commercials. And you know, Michael Jordan, it needs to be help helped to become a star..

"coppola spielberg" Discussed on Boston Herald Radio

"Free Boston Herald radio. Uh-huh. You know, there's not going to be anybody hosting the Oscars. We know the hall Kevin Hart story that's very upsetting to Christian. We're going. He hasn't gotten over it. Are you have you looked over the list? Are you rooting for anybody? Are you? This is the first time Hillary that I'm not into it. I don't know. I mean this movie slump. I mean. Yeah. Love movies of the nominated films. I saw black klansman and vice I haven't seen the other seven normally around this time, I would have seen every nominated film every nominated actor I'll catch up. But normally when the list comes out, which is like the Tuesday morning at eight forty five. I'm like glued to the TV like waiting to see who's getting nominated rideshare was like after lunch, and I'm like, oh, yeah. That's right. The Oscar nominations came out this morning. Let's see what they were so up. Of course, watched the show. I wish they had a host. Did it? I just like the one that the whole rigmarole impacted your obviously, you already sort of weren't watching movies as much so. But do you think that the Kevin Hart? Now, I'm really not a big fan of Kevin Hart. I respect them working guy. But if it would you Chris rock or Bill Maher or someone else that I really really like, then I would obviously be more interested in that. But. Seth macfarlane. I thought was great as a host the guy could sing he could host. He can do voices. He's just a very talented guy. But normally you'd have the host as part of the process during the morning of the nominations. So there's there's none of that this year because there's no host. But yeah, no, I don't think that impacts me. I've just gone into this movie slump. I don't know what what happened. Therapist at this point to get me back out to the into the spirit of that is a common reason people usually decide to up and start going there. I think so. Yeah. Like, I haven't been to the movies. What do you need to? Maybe they'll just tell me to re up my movie, the part of the reason the movie pass kinda soured being. Yeah. Because I was paying ten dollars a month and yet unlimited movies, which that's great to be true. Yeah. But now it's like it's ten dollars a month. And you can only use it three times in a month. And it has to be certain movies at certain times. It's like, that's why canceled it I think AMC our lows coming out with a movie club for twenty bucks a month unlimited movies. I think that's great because all you really need to do is go twice to pay for it. With the cost of movies now, although I like to go on a Saturday morning around eleven thirty. It's like seven bucks to go. See a movie, and then I go grab lunch afterwards. It's like oh man thing to do. I don't care at all about Kevin Hart. But, but I will say that this whole rigmarole has made me want to watch the Oscars less or has deter me from really caring as much about this year's Oscars. I mean, then again, I don't really care for seven McFarland either. So maybe I, you know, Billy, crystal back. I mean, I was great. They don't have a I don't have a favorite. I sweat light Ricky debates, although people were so cringing about it that that made it tough cringe, but isn't necessarily exactly that's that's the issue is that you know, anyway. Yeah. So I mean, I don't know there's something about certainly maybe I've just maybe I haven't thought more about the Oscars. But then the idea of the Oscars without a host sounds just not that good to me. No. And then when it comes to the when it comes to the the actual nominations. I maybe that's I think that's factoring in in my race sort of random annoyance with the whole situation. If you haven't really seen the movies Romo got a lot of nominations. I guess it's brilliant. I do want to see it. Right. But I haven't right. So there's part of me. I didn't even see Black Panther which I'm ashamed to say. Because I. Yeah. I mean, I saw black klansman.
