"Got lucky today That was from the trailer for a luca. The newest film from pixar the plot summary from i'm db on the italian riviera an unlikely but strong friendship grows between a human being an sea monster disguised as a human. You reviewed luca for slash film dot com curious. What did you think of this film overall. I absolutely adored. Luke i encourage you to check out my review on slash. I'm actually quite proud of it. And i gave it a rave review there but i will repeat a little bit of what i said in my review in that. I think that this is the closest of pixar has ever gotten to a studio ghibli film will actually an thematically and i say that with the highest of praise because Casseroles other rector of luca who this is his first time feature and he had once he'd before directed luna which was a pixar short verb. You fire incurred you to check it out on disney plus had grown up with miyazaki shows. Actually he is. He's been a longtime fan of high amuse zaki Works and you can see a lot of that. In the fabric in the dna of luca in some of the the aesthetic. Like i said the characters like Julius father the cat some of these designs look very much like they stepped straight out of ghibli film. But the medically and atmospherically there's this loveliness and just happiness with being in the moments with with being in this low stakes a small scale type of story and just kind of living with these characters. Plot exists but it doesn't matter as much when the plot kicks in at the end. It's only in a sense of calm. Impelling compelling these characters to a spot that they make a grant a big decision a crossroads in their lives. And there's just this happiness with being with existing with these characters that i found extremely compelling and lovely and delightful to watch and i think that's a lot of people will luca off as just being a charming low key lesser pixar because stakes are so small but i think that charming as as great as scripted as it is for luca can kind of be the death knell for a film i think is as great as luca is because i don't think small-scale or low or low stakes is lesser by any means and this is going to go into a little bit of a ramble about how i think pixar which direction i think pixar is going. And i i think luka presents a really interesting option and direction for pixar that is more than just topping itself. Because i think pixar because it's at the peak of western nation is kind of a Fixated on one upping itself one upping zone in its visuals in its technology in. Its aspiration to reach that. Kind of hyper photo. Realism of being almost so close to reality. That looks like it could be real animal real catcher real harlem streets or something and doing this. And also one upping itself story wise to trying to reach these levels of Trying to explore existentialism and these types of more high-concept at stories. I don't think it always needs to to do that. And i think that there is a value and Something so wonderful going to a story that is so well worn at this point. It's coming of age story about friendship. And that's been told so many times but luca does it in a way that it feels so emotionally that it's refreshing. I just felt so with these characters that it didn't need to be doing something so fancy high-concept and existential it just needs to be out these characters and let you live and be with these characters. So i absolutely love luca. I think it's one of the best pixar films in years. And i think it's fantastic right. Davinder your heart or your thoughts on luca. Yeah i'm pretty much right there with you. H i think this movie is phenomenal. Because it doesn't try to go the typical pixar route. And i definitely got a lot of jubilee bob's throughout this whole throughout this whole thing You know the town is named portfolio roseau which they're just saying pork rose arrests many many times and i loved it. I loved that there. Is that word. Play in a in a disney and pixar movie. We actually got an email from someone named carlo who wrote indecisive. jamila com He says i rate this to you. Preemptively as i've seen other movie reviews online and they all say that the town name is porto so as is to the great movie porco rosso. I'm not disputing. It was a big influence. it is on. Everybody loves animation yet. Porto roseau can also be the combination of montereau ceo and portovenere two small towns from the Laguardia the director casa is from here and you suspend his summers in the tara. The fatherland one both are true. Yep act yes. it's possible. They think that makes it even better. It even better efforts like that's the whole everybody go watch pork arosa that moves fantastic. Script groovy everything. You're saying you're not is Is absolutely true. I feel like i'm getting tired of pixar. Trying to who was the last one like seoul was like trying to define the nature of existence and our purpose on this life by giving us a view you know of the of the non existent points You know before our souls in bully exists right before they're even fully formed. Not a very pixar movie needs to do that. They don't need to or end with You know aluna robot saving all humanity or a group of superheroes stopping supervillain. This is a movie about two friends. Learning how to be friends in learning how to be better people to each other to live lives and i cannot think of a more deeply movie than that you know. And that's what. I love about the movies so many of them in my favorites. You know kiki's delivery service. My neighbor totoro i guess. Relatively small stakes things they're about character is trying to accomplish something their lives trying to take a step forward and they're about the friends they meet along the way in. This movie gets that so well the style of it. I think this is the best pixar movie has ever looked. I personally don't like the way pixar enemies. Humans i think so far. They've all been kind of ugly but this win. Like i'm digging this style me because it's all harmon. Yeah yeah sure I you know it's just like to me. A little more pleasing. It seems like pixar. Kansas do humans though right. Like with coco is like okay humans but also skull people. You know skeleton people This one that's humans but also merman Pixar cannot just do one thing but as an overall style well as well you know but those highly stylized highly stylized. I see. I know like what they were. Referencing with those styles. I don't think those are like the best looking human characters. Like i like this by right here. It's very naturalistic I don't know i. I just like the way. These characters look aesthetically pleasing to but it's also really chill chill. It's about friends and good food. And you know luca trying to move beyond his overprotective parent. So i couldn't help but love it. watch it with my daughter. She's like she's not into this movie yet. But i think like jubilee vibes of it will get her on board eventually so dug it all right. Jeff cannata your thoughts on luca..

Sonos ending support for decade-old speakers really isn't a big deal
"Speaking speaking of going away sonos and gadget great piece from you davinder every smart smart device you love will die starting with sonos little dramatic yeah it's an important point though yeah make the point tell us why you say this all it's something you know last week we heard about his plan to retire some of their ten year old products and select the first play five some of the first bridges i believe that they released and basically they said that they were gonna end support also if you were using those devices in had modern sonos hardware none of your hardware would be updated because it's all kind of a a dated network they're all mesh connected so you couldn't have like old stephanie often used for any together i think it just made it clear that this wondrous bounty of connected gadgets were living in this is the cost is that they will they they will die and much faster than similar gadgets of the past right like i knew people running speakers hi fi speakers that are decades old like speakers from the seventies seventies they can still run today because they're all running over a nice standard wired connection and that's been consistent for the last several decades and we just don't have that anymore and smart devices because they they're basically tiny computers they won't be able to run newer software in your updates they'll just have to be the retired eventually your only choices the consumer is upgrade and i think for sonos in particular that was bad it was it was a big hit to sell us fans because you can easily you know spend thousands of dollars equipping your house with smart sonos speakers and now it looks like the company just is going to be killing support and also giving you breath bad way to upgrade they have this thing called for cycle mode that'll fundamentally kill an old device completely irreverent ribbit qabli like you can't even restore it and they'll give you thirty percent off new hardware and you'll do this all again in ten years maybe and it's just kind of to me it's kind of a mess and two shows like this stuff steph won't last forever smart devices may make our lives easier but they will die like far sooner than older gadgets to the past

"And a bunch of good emails came in to us aside from catchy Mola com. Let's read an Email that is like light on the spoiler is this Email comes in from m j who rices slash catchy. Millicom love you guys so much look forward to every week. You're takes on films that I want to see have no intention of seeing and learning about smaller or hidden films that are not on my radar. So when Davinder recommended hotel, Mumbai, because it featured and ask kicking Patel, going, Jason Bourne, by not hotel them by what is it called? I did not I haven't seen them ever committed the wedding guest. This guy, I think hotel them buys another movie with the deaf Patel. I just haven't seen. Yeah. Yeah. Dental is in that I recommended the wedding guests, which is awesome. But is. Never mind, never mind. Well, yeah. Yes. Lately racist, confusion there. It's okay. It's okay. So we can get your movies, right people. So we can like men verses. Huarong here. Yes. So MD I naturally thought this might be a nice sit with my wife and I now for some context, my wife can handle some kinds of movie violence, but some she cannot stomach. For example. She loves the Jason Bourne films, but she whores violence on screen where innocent people repeatedly gunned down in graphic detail. So let's play a little game with my night when when I put on this movie was violent. Oh my God. Yes. Like John chapter three level violent does it feature is and people being gunned down for two hours in graphic detail as the lead for their life while. Yes, it does. But I kept telling my wife to hang in there, because the Patel was gonna kick into Jason Bourne mode, any second and kick all the bad guys asses suffices say this never happened surely, Mr. Patel, must've taken out if you terrorist, right? I mean, why would defend your have said this if it wasn't true? In fact, Patel case kicks absolutely no asimus. He runs hides. He helps to say people being quiet. I watched the wrong. I just kind of fucked up. Jason bore movies. Have you been watching? Listener is please pay attention to listening comprehension. It is great. It is important because. Yeah, I've heard good things about this movie actually by also here. He's very intent. It sounds like the United ninety three of terrorist events movies. So I just googled wedding guests Patel, and the of the first Google images is of him holding a gun, which him holding a gun with the Clint Eastwood face at what point and this reader still has not even finished the movie and did not think maybe this may be the wrong movie. So I don't wanna rag on too much. Please see the wedding guest is it is violent, but not, not the same level like you won't see innocence getting tortured. At least that is incredible. I thought this was this Email was going to be schooling you on today's episode of the podcast, but it turns out MJ Sieber is the one who has been school. He thought detector. He thought the vinegar was talking about hotel Mbai for some reason. I don't think you'd mentioned that movie. Did you on that? I've never. I've never uttered. The words I even say who tells them by jury ING my wedding guests. So looks like am day. The shoe is on the other foot, so good. See the wedding guests and report back. What thing? I how mad he got at watching the wrong movie so great. This is life on the internet. Basically, you're wrong also MDC signed the Email. Sincerely, never allowed to pick movies to watch with my wife again. So good job burning through that credit research. No research to hear this part of the show, so badly she hears it. Of your wife. Right. The reply Email. Incredible incredible. Okay. So we're going to talk a little bit about black mayor for a second, which is the thing we discussed last week, instead of dark Phoenix, and we reviewed all three episodes of black mirror..

Let's move onto our last story for today, and that is about Todd McFarlane, spawn movie, which it looks like even though it has been casting in might not happen. Then what do we know? Well, yeah, the, the cast of this movie is in place right now. We know that Jamie FOX and Jeremy Renner are signed on to star, the legendary Greg Nicotera who didn't make up for shows like the Walking Dead is attached to do the makeup for this, but in a new interview with comic book dotcom Todd McFarlane, who is the guy who created the spawn character. He's a famous comic writer, the probably have seen his name pop up here and there. If you're listening to this podcast, he said, the money's sitting on the sidelines ready to go. I just need to get everyone that wants to put money in to shake their heads to the same script, as you can imagine everyone has a slightly different version of it in their head. You just go and try to appease a handful of people while not giving in to what it is that I'm trying to do myself because if I have to change it too much, I'll walk away from it all. So. You know, to me Todd McFarlane this is his this is supposed to be his direct. To'real debut is feature director Auriol debut. So he doesn't need this movie. You know, he's, he's not like an up and coming filmmaker who's trying to get a chance to move on to bigger and better things..

I'm giving you time to think about it. While I talk about our asked pass, which is not a hidden gem. Anybody watches twit for any length of time knows I'm a complete less pass, advocate and fanatic. I've been using last pass for a decade ever since it started. You may remember, but as five years ago now we add Steve Gibson interviewed the creator of last pass Josie GRIs showed him the code explained. How everything worked Steve Gibson? Our security group said this is awesome. He's started using it. And then something happened. One of our engineers posted all of this company's passwords, the database, the website the everything on a public website because he couldn't remember them. And we said, you know, maybe we should use last pass. Here we got last pets enterprise, if you have a business, you know, breaches of the worst thing that can happen to your reputation to your company to your bottom line. It's the worst. But but where's the weak spot? Well, it's your employees. And it's and it's frankly, it's your passwords. That's why we use last pass enterprise reduced the threat of breach with organization wide password management a hundred policies that you can set for your employees. For instance, we require to factor you can set masterpass requirements. So that can't be monkey one-two-three. You've got password resets, you can restrict access employee leaves. They can share passwords, and we know we know employees share passers not just with with other employees. But with other people outside of the coming. They could share passwords, but they don't know the password. So they just see dot. So you can actually set it up. So that they can log into the quick books or the Bank accounts or the databases, but they don't even have access to the password. We use shared folders, which is a nice feature of enterprise that. Let's our ops team have all the passwords they need. We don't have to individually share it. The business office has all the passwords they need with more of the passwords for me. I put everything in last past database, Loggins SSH keys. Yes, I put my SSH keys in their software licenses. My dry. Vers licensed social security number and pass port is in last pests because I know I have it everywhere. That's the beauty allies best on every device every operating system windows MAC, Lennox Android, IOS, the first thing I do when I get a new phone. I put last pass on there and helps you set up everything else. In fact, now, thanks to Iowa twelve Android pi. It's very easy because it just auto fills the password last past hits there. And when when you get suicide with needs a password at an app that needs a password just fills it in and it uses face ID or touch ID. So all the securities their last passes password generator makes it easy for people to generate real long strong random passwords, you don't have to remember him. You'd have to write them down it stores them for you. It even has a security check to look for passwords places where maybe you've used the same password more than once and helps you change those automatically. It's just the best.

"Spotify creates every Monday based on your listening habits. And it's always got great stuff in a new stuff that I would like it's a yeah. If they did that with podcasts that would be very interesting. We launch partner when Spotify went podcast added podcast. We were launched partner we were up there on stage with Daniel equity announced it and all that stuff. But we don't notice a lot of traffic for Spotify. Because people can't find it same. When we rocket is also in pocket at at and Spotify. And and I don't have a lot of direct analytic information about that. And that's actually one of the problems, right? The problems of podcasts all up is that your analytic information is kind of a black box because it differs from platform to platform, and you have to extrapolate a certain amount of information from that. Sorry. Number one. I think is pocket casts. Maybe I tunes them podcasts. But that worries me because has Cup up by public radio. And I don't know what the future is for non public radio podcasts. Guess apple is doing their thing where they're doing measurements and trying to sell that to advertisers. But you have to use an apple product to get that an apple podcast app to get that information. I I hope you're wrong Davinder hope that RSS and the completely democratic method of distributing audio shows remains because I think it's really important. It's just we've seen I think for so long because I've been I our podcast just past five hundred episodes. We'd been doing it for over ten years. The last film cast we've seen the tech for so long. Yeah. It the fundamental tech has not changed. No problem like analytics, doing something more interesting. What I like about Spotify too. Is that you know, when you're playing music occasionally video will pop to on your phone, and like, maybe Lee. Eric info. Like, maybe there's a some stuff from wrapping genius, right? There's more potential to do more with that interface than just, you know, have somebody listen to an audio file and let the screen be kind of useless. I've been looking forward to something like that to like better use of meditate maybe through a link maybe through a video as we're talking about it that kind of really cool and really interesting, so at least Spotify could innovate on that front. I want our assists to succeed. But you know, even Google reader couldn't do it. So who knows how long well, I know. It's really been interesting for podcast. I don't know if you it's made a difference for you guys. And I don't have any numbers to back this up. But the fact that you can ask Amazon's echo or Google home or a seri- to play podcast for you and just by name, and you get the latest episode that to me seems like a very nice way for consumers to listen. It's it's ninety it's hard to control here for people to be able to just listen to something on the fly while they're doing something. They don't have to grab anything. They can just ask for it to play. It starts to play. You have to know what to ask for though. That's the problem. Yeah. Yeah. So I think you have to say it properly because if not you get podcasts best can be embarrassed. That's just the world of echo. Thank you know. What's weird? I every morning I'll get up, and I say echo, listen to the daily podcast on my bathroom Sonos. That's the exact sentence. I say every.

And I wanted to give some plugs to some stuff on the site, including our twenty five most anticipated movies of two thousand eighteen we did a podcast last week at this point. I think it was last week where we did a writers from trying to decide what the twenty five most anticipated movies were well, we didn't do on the areas rank them. And so if you want to find out how we've ranked those twenty five movies you can go to the site. I'll Lincoln the show notes, and I will say that it was a bit of surprise. For instance, none of us. I think only one movie made all of all six of our top fives in that movie was not Star Wars and not avengers then game. So. You'll you'll see that movie and top-five, you know, there's a bit of a up a bit of interesting ranking there. So I check that out. Ben, I know you wanted to make something that's on sale right now. Yeah. Joshua Meyer wrote a really great piece about the film's of 'em night. Shamlan glasses coming up, and even though the early buzz for that movie is not great. I think it's a really good time to go back and sort of take a look at 'em night channel on his legacies. Filmmaker what he's done so far. And that's what this article does. And I'm a big fan of village. And there's an really interesting parallel that he draws in this article between the village in iron man's three. And I'll just leave that as a tease because I've never considered those two movies in any sort of parallel scenario before. But this article draws that parallel. So check it out. It's it's in the show nuts as well. Nascar this or out of the latest entry to nounce screen this which is Chris Vangelis says and Matt dinardo's biweekly horror column where they recommend all sorts of horror films niche and mainstream and the like this week. Is kind of a grab bag of all kinds of movies. There's nineties horror gems the best resident evil movie and the greatest horror comedy. So if you have theory for that that that is you should check it out on our site, very curious with the greatest greatest horror comedy of all time is the uptick that article all three of those are linked in the show notes jump into the news, by the way, I should say yesterday. I think I said that we're doing a reddish from episode today that got pushed to tomorrow because what we didn't. Remember is Brad is traveling today? So we wanted to have him on that episode.

"I'm proud to put it as number three a rifle. Great choice. Jeff arrival of certainly one of the greatest films of the last decade. So. Yeah. Nicely Davinder heart or your number three film. Let me ask you guys. This have you ever seen a miracle? My number three's Bladerunner twenty forty nine. Is on a roll guys, actually. Yeah. It was also debating whether to do arrival or this one, and I lean towards this just because you know, this is the sequel that's kind of impossible, and I think I could call five of my top five impossible films like nothing about the should work. We've been hearing about a sequel to runner forever. And I was never into the idea. And I think like what we got with Blida twenty forty nine is just a really interesting exploration of identity and also continuation of the storyline. From the first film done with such impeccable style, the same amount of restraint we kind of expected from blade runner and get another like a really great score something that really sets the tone. I don't like as much as Vangelis one. But still very fitting for this film. Just everything about this. Like, I saw this film three or four times in theaters. And this is a big sumptuous movie you just entering in its long, but I also love. Staring all those shots in. How a lot of it's composed. So yeah. To movie, that's I've kind of burned into my brain in many ways. Yeah. Those are great year for scifi. Right. Believe under twenty twenty and didn't rival here's well, I feel like it was man. There was the same year was it. Later twenty seventeen arrivals twenty sixteen. Okay. Sorry. Yeah. There you go on your part, but men. Yeah. Great great run for scifi there. And when I think back to blade under twenty forty nine. I mean that is a movie where like every shot or every other shot is a work of art. Right..

"Huge in helping me. Learn to critically think about film, and I've loved your has reviews. My question today is about how you guys met up and started the podcast together. I'm trying to start a podcast here in Saint Louis, and it's really hard to find people who want to think and talk about film critically. Yes. So just some advice on that congrats on five hundred episodes can't wait to hear what succumb? Thanks. Thanks. Josaia for that voicemail. And the question is how did the podcast start advice on that? Let's talk a little bit about that. The science was not always the Cy shown cast it began over ten years ago. Pre prior to episode one of the system cast. We were a podcast called the watchers. And there was three people on the podcast. It was in your hardware, Adam quickly and myself, and this is so long ago. Like, it's feels like it doesn't make any sense doesn't make any sense because Mark Merrin hadn't invented the podcast yet. I know it's buying laws space time, but we Leila port invented the net. Cast you still think he's trying to do. But yeah, we're somewhere in their Twitter had recently started to become popular right around that time. And I saw how it started is Davinder. And I we went to college together we were roommates for couple years in college. And we. We shared in a lot of nerd culture together. Right. We listened to specifically. There's one podcast. I would say if I could say one podcast was the inspiration for the size from cast. It would be one up yours. The video game podcast hosted by Garnett Lee back when one up dot com was a going concern. Classic stuff so much. Good came out of went up all those people who worked at one up dot com. You know, have been scattered to the the gaming the street, but they're all many of them are like extremely successful and and high profile people in their own right now. But beg of the time is just, you know, these people hanging out talking about video games, and I wanted to create something like that for movies, right? I think I have had the experience where the whole time growing up. Right. I would go see movies with friends, and we'd have a conversation. And I'd say like, what did you think of the movie and they say, oh, it's pretty good. And that would be where the conversation ended. That's it. The whole conversation is good. And and the conversation last like thirty seconds, and I find that deeply satisfying same when I used to watch movies with my parents kind of the same deal. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And so division. I we already knew each other and we've been talking about movies forever. We shared DVD's in in college and played soul caliber together. And but I felt like we needed to have a third person. Like, just it's just three people is a is an easier conversation, and I had randomly found this guy on the internet Adam Quigley, just from I was really big into dig dot com. The dot com back then we're really aging ourselves with all this reference. And I'd met a lot of people through that site dig dot com. A lot of middle out of friends online. And I think I'd seen Adam submitting his stuff, and I just had randomly. I think gee, chatted him is if I recall correctly there was an actual community around dig. And I think even read it back, then like just in terms of people who were writing cool stuff for their websites and wanted to get it promoted anyway, but it was almost like game fide to like the whole culture thing th that's a whole separate story. But that's kind of why I I was interested in atoms. Well in the chat room, Jordan Anderson says I still have Mr. baby men on my steam friends list. Yep. Still still friends of Mr. baby man, who is like the number one dig user of all time..

"He combined that with combined the themes home with opera music, and I was like, oh like he's pulling like who did the diehard score was Alan Silvestri, die hard. Michael came in did the score for Nihar d-, and he combined the diehard score with Beethoven's Ninth. Right. So it's like, it's interesting to hear movie music combined with classical music, and so like mission impossible already did that even it felt like they had done every permutation of possible mission, boss music and Lorne Balfe. Really knocked this out of the park. Like, he gave the mission impossible theme song this kind of sinister nature to it that I had not thought was even possible with the score. I thought it was actually probably my favorite out of all the scores of the mission impossible film. So really love the score among many of the things, but mission impossible fall is a movie where a scientologist billionaire risked his life to do extremely dangerous stunts and film at all. So that we could give him money to see it. And so he could become an even bigger really narrow in other words, it's everything that makes America great and terrible in one film. That's mission impossible fall out. And yeah, I love this movie. It's my number eight familiar curious that, you know, I'm curious like if this is on your list at all because if so it will be you have to be higher than number eight if we would have liked have to like it more than you. Yeah. Which I the thought of it really upsets me I have to I'm going to be on. But let's say, by the way like most of these number rankings. It's all topic. It's all like, whatever. I don't unle- except for like, maybe number one. I don't really give most of the numbered order much credit. How dare you? How dare you what we struggled? Just put numbers on it. I didn't have to sign meaning to it. That's right Davinder doesn't like it that we do the numbers. But I think it has a little bit of a little little free song of tension too. Okay. Jeff's number seven film of two thousand eighteen it's free song. Dave saying that is my favorite movie with you. Number seven is searching. Whoa. I rise. I will be honest with you guys. I think maybe you knew this. I actively did not want to see this movie. I resisted watching it. I thought there's no way it's not terrible. I mean, actually, I didn't think it was gonna be terrible. I just thought it was going to be tedious and overstay its welcome. And be a one trick pony. That didn't there wasn't much fun to it. How wrong I was searching was clever. It was inciteful it used its its gimmick to actually enhance the storytelling to make it more. Interesting. It a little bit jumps the shark at the end just a teacher. And we talk about that at length in our episode. If you want to go back and listen to that. But for the most part, I found it to be really fun, really clever. Really smart. A great performance by John show. I I really was bowled over and surprised by searching. And that's why it made my list. Number seven. I am stunned at this choice. Actually, like, I thought searching was a fine film. But I didn't think it would make your top ten like when you think about what you take away from that movie. Right. What what what is it? That speaks to you most Jeff about the film is the innovation of storytelling is there. Like something about it. That really like what is their message at the film has for you. I think I don't want to pull this card because it's it's a Canard car. But the, you know, the idea of putting myself in that fathers position. Yeah. I understand searching if you have kids, basically, it's the interstellar of twenty eight..

"On your list. Davinder hardware. What is your number eight film of two thousand eighteen my number eight is widows who would have thought that Steve McQueen would have like teamed up with the Gillian Flynn to do a heist movie. Like, it just all those things combined. Just doesn't seem to work for me by been excited about the film since I heard of it since we heard about the cast featuring a great group of tough women to I love heist movies. I've been waiting for somebody to kind of do heat the kind of surpass heat or at least do it differently. I think this movie comes the closest there's just so much going on. And of course, it's also more than just like a heist movie. I think it's also says quite a bit about modern day Chicago race relations the way a city is kind of separated. Even when you know, two groups of people may live a couple blocks apart it just dies into so much, but mostly it's a kick ass movie and. And has some tremendous performances completely left it. Yeah. It killed me that I didn't find room on my top ten for widows. I really had a hard time. Not putting it in my top ten because it's fantastic. But just missed my top ten. It's a great film. I read an article recently bilge berry about this being the year of the quote, unquote, elevated, John Rowe film genre film, but it has an amazing award winning cast. It had it's the direction is incredible. And touches upon all these diverse themes that you don't see in a normal Bank ice movie or not Bank is, but you know, normal heist film, and yeah, I think that it does really all those elements all that amazing talent behind and in front of the camera. Really does elevate this beyond just a regular sonar dome. So definitely a great choice for number eight. I really loved watching that movie did not make my top ten, but I'm still a big fan of Steve. Enes widows, which is vigorous number eight film of twenty eight also want to say like I'm very glad that movie tried to dive into women's inner lives too. Which is something we've we've appreciated Michael Mann's movies for being cave deeper and more introspective. But most of his movies are guys like really what guys thinking how guys deal with the world. It is nice to have this different point of view. Let's get to my number eight film of two thousand eighteen which is mission impossible fallout. Yeah. Mission impossible fall is the six film in the mission impossible franchise and writer director Christopher Corey second team up with Tom Cruise, and it really shows that mission impossible has found its voice by doubling down on the spectacle. Right. It has some of the most spectacular stunts ever committed to film, and it was amazing to watch this movie in both Dobie. And I max which is two ways to out of the five ways in which I watched this movie in theaters how many times have you seen this movie? Probably probably five times Peter is probably an a couple of times after the Blu Ray came out. Yeah. People in the chat room right now are saying seems low for Dave. I agree. This is a similar. Yeah. But here here's the thing. Goes you can't assign movies rankings based on how many times you've seen them? You know, what I might be like a true mission impossible fan would have it higher. That's all I think are real bad. I think that's fair. One thing. I did want to shout out is Lauren valves, amazing score. Now at this point. We've heard five mission impossible scores right before this movie came out, and I was thinking about okay. I've basically heard every way you can slice and dice emission ball themes, on like, there's no there's nothing you can bring this even biscuit back come out even less discovered. This you got limpest skit you've got what was it? The guy from YouTube, right? Did the first one? The rock won for the trailer for this one. I think you're thinking of imagine dragons did the magic dragon the trailer song, but that was not in the film. All right, right. But Joe Kraemer was the composer for mission impossible rogue nation, and.
