"Very much perfectly. What about Frankenstein? Frankenstein is the Holy Grail. It's something I mean I was quite literally reborn. I was St. Paul on the road to Damascus when I saw Boris Karloff cross that threshold and universal movie. I was transfixed by this image. I can not he's not an exaggeration. I was shook by a lighting bolt of fervor as a child. I thought that's me. That's me. Why did you identify with Frankenstein? Because I didn't quite fit in the way the adults were presenting the world to me. I didn't fit in their notions of what it was to be a child. Because I was a 70 year old pessimist when I was 7. You know, I was a hypochondriac. I was constantly concerned with the notion of dying. I was a very old man when I was 7. And I think I'm 7 now that I'm 57. I can take life and death in the same notion and I'm at peace with both. And I celebrate our existence no matter how painful and imperfect it is. So these monster crossing that threshold, these are normally seem to embody everything that I thought was quote unquote wrong with me in a beautiful way. It was like a patron saint being discovered for me. Frankenstein doesn't mean to harm people, but he doesn't know better so he does, and then of course that little girl in the field. In the future, yes. Yeah, yeah, in the movie. Yeah. He doesn't mean to hurt her, but he doesn't know how to treat a little girl, and so he inadvertently. Does he kill her? I'm trying to remember. I think he kills her, right? He thinks she's a flower. He has no more flowers to throw. And he throws her in the leg or the river. And they shot it very near my home and Lake Malibu, I believe. And I went to the side a couple of times. And to me, what it is in the movies and what he is in the novels is very different in a way. Frankenstein in the novel, which I worship and adore. Gains the very same power to question his creator than you would have in John Melton. You know, he goes back and basically says, why did you created me? And if you created him, why did you make me so alone? These are questions that are moving very much at a very early age when I read the book. And I think there are essential questions and will remain with us for as long as we're a birthday and die. So if you identified as a monster as Frankenstein, did you think other people saw you that way? I don't know about that. I just thought that it was very anomalous, it was curious because, for example, reading and trying to stay indoors was seen as unhealthy to give you a brief example, not partaking on gains of football or the bigger as hikes through the countryside, they were seen as not natural to what my condition of a happy child was, but in reality, I have the powers of observation that come with a certain passenger of the soul. I think that we are born of a certain grade of glass or crystal and we vibrate different in the universe and the idea of normalcy, literally statistical normalcy was very suffocating for me. Gamma del toro it's been great to talk with you. Thank you for making this movie. And you know, I wish you good health during this pandemic. Thank you. Guillermo del Toro wrote and directed the new film nightmare alley. It's now playing in theaters and it's streaming on Hulu and HBO Max. Let's close with the recording that ends the film.

"Just to get a feel for it directly. Well, having lived in Mexico so long and I have actually experienced that and that firsthand in other situations other than the kidnapping and my mother moved in the circles that read the tarot and believed in magic and I was exposed to that from an early age. But what we did as research, we went to famous mandalas in England there in brown, who is an incredible practitioner of the craft, more so than ever because he reveals that his old tricks on the beginning of the show and he says, you will nevertheless experience these emotions, and you have to remember that this is all a trick. I use no allies in the audience, you know, I'm going to do it straight, you know, it's a con, but you're going to get hooked. And he proceeds to do the show. And it's amazing. And we talked to teller from Penn and teller fan. Oh, yeah. And we have and he did talk and by the way. And we dug to our magic consultant. My clothes, who was who is an adviser to many magicians in the world? And I myself, I'm a lifelong student of precipitation, mendelism, and so forth. You've practiced mentalism, or you've just studied it. I know the principles. I know the principles, and I know all the tricks and the basic principles are about ten principles, but there are infinite variations of them. I used to perform very modest magic and social circumstances, but Alfonso cuaron is such a Duff audience that he destroyed there. Myself confidence. Did you go to Mexican carnivals when you were growing up? Yes, I did. And in fact, the actor that appears in the movie that is the spider woman is an actor, so when I was about 6 years old and her speech, which was indelibly etched on my brain, it's exactly the speech that is in the movie. She said woven me that I took this form for disobeying my parents. And be aware of the last and greed and this and that and I was so horrified and so shocked as a kid that it stayed in my mind until this movie. So I want to get back to the mentalist in the movie, the mind reader. Apparently there was a code of words that substituted for other words so that the assistant out in the audience could say things that were really code for here's what the answer should be. Or here's what the person is holding in their hand. Here's what they have in their handbag. So was I really a code like that? Yes. Yeah? There is many codes incredibly difficult. It takes a long time to learn them, but if I was to simplify it, you substitute the word for a number, and that number leads you to another word. So it's like learning three languages in one. Or you can do the cheapest version of it is to use intonation and the cold wards. For example, we have one of those very, very cheap versions of the code in one and one of the questions in the cabaret. When he says, I see initials and he's blamed for that. And she says, could you kindly name them? It means C and K could you kindly know. Oh. I didn't catch that in the movie. Yeah. Yeah, that is very fast. That's fast code to react fast. And then you substitute wars. You can say master Stanton that is one object. And if you say, could you please? That's another object. To give you a simple version of the code. So in the movie Stan, Bradley Cooper's character makes the comparison between religion and the grift of this kind of mind reading. He says folks are always crazy to have their fortunes told, you cheer them up and give them something to wish and hope for. That's all the preacher does every Sunday, not much different, being a fortune teller, and a preacher. And that's in the novel to were you attracted to that, the idea of the fake fortune teller and the preacher having a certain similarity. I mean, I know, I know your grandmother was very religious. You even the last time we spoke you compared her to the mother in the movie Carrie, who is just like a fanatic. And in fact, she got grifted out of her property. No. Really? Organization, yes. She signed a living well, in which she gave them all her possessions and said, you know, they would promise to wait until she died, but they dispatched her to a home rather quickly. I think that the interesting thing about this speech, which is paraphrased in the movie by Bradley Cooper, and he's basically trying to justify his actions by invoking a larger grift. Obviously, the larger grifts in life come hand in hand with some forms of organized religion or political parties and so forth. But I think the movie tries to also explore the most intimate consequences of the graft. When you are finally found out, because I think everybody gets found out. And that sacred and horrible moment in which you see yourself or who you are. It's so important in the movie. And we knew that the what and how he sees himself would be easy to guess as a piece of dramaturgy, our screenwriting, but the exact reaction of Stan when he sees who he is, is one of the most moving pieces of acting I've ever seen. Bradley's reaction to that final revelation goes from complete loss to elation to relief to despair. And in a very short space and it's very beautiful to behold. So I know that two of your favorite childhood characters were Frankenstein and Pinocchio. Do they have something in common that make you make them your favorite? Yes, they are both they are both characters that are born into a world and then abandoned to their fate to figure it out. You know, they're very little Tony and in a very different way. I think Pinocchio and Frankenstein both go through that painful learning curve and I find it moving and Pinocchio, the idea that he has no notion of not being quote on quote a real boy. You know? And that he is a real boy by the act of existing and being in this world. And I tried to explore that on the movie I'm making now making the stop motion version of Pinocchio, but they said and during the rise of Mussolini in fascist Italy and which most people act like a puppet except the puppet and I think that it will be a very different version from the classic ones, but I think it's one that suits me and my brother patients and my recurring questions.

"Just for money. The principle of cruelty and both fables are both parables. It's still the same in a way. The results are not. And the graft that stand does is ultimately small, but he uses it to give hope to the hopeless. I remember when my father was kidnapped in 1998, one of the first warnings that came with that from the negotiator of the kidnapping, he said, be aware of the psychics. They're going to show up really early and no sooner and they hung up the phone. And I went to see my mother and there were two psychics sitting in the living room telling her they knew and they could lead us to where my father was because they could send him. And this made an indelible impression and that cruelty, which I saw firsthand also part of the spirit in this moment. This is when you were still living in Mexico, right? Yes, before I moved and we tried to find comfort in belief systems that we know are not entirely true, but we deposit all the remnants of our faith and why that innocence into them only to be disappointed. And I think this movie has an ending that is quite shattering, but at the same time it's very human as an ending that we build the entire movie for. The movie is like a slow ramp inexorable as all tragedy is the words unending that I think will live in the memory of people watching the movie. And we will not say what that is. So your father was kidnapped and held, I think for like a $1 million ransom. Yeah, for two days, yes. So when the psychic showed up to talk to your mother, what do they tell her do you know? You know, when they were there very shortly because I kicked them out. But what they were saying is that they could send my father that he was trying to communicate with her. And the speech was almost identical to what Stan says in the movie. Stan is the Bradley Cooper character. Yeah, the Bradley Cooper character who plays the con of being a psychic. And the first thing they hook you up was he loves you so very, very much. And he's trying to reach you and he knows that you can save him. They use the same hooks. And that was evident to me, but my mother, for a moment, was harboring hope. Yeah, well, of course, your father loved your mother. And of course, that's what you'd want to hear. I mean, so and even if she doubted that he loved her if the psychics told her that he loved her, she'd really want to hear that, and that would make her feel good. So that's how they kind of reel you in. They tell you what you believe already or what you want to hear and do it in a generalized enough way so that it fits it fits nearly everybody. And stand and says that there are certain devices that come with the psychic craft and all of them were accurately researched for the movie. And she says, how do you get them little to ask and stand on says health, wealth, law? You know, you find what they need the most or what they fear the most and hook them through that. And the other principle that operates David says everybody is desperate to tell you who they are to be seen, which is sadly or not a reality of our species. We are all desperate to be seen or to be heard. And we communicate constantly through our clothing or physical language or inflections and skillful psychic, we'll be able to read all the signs and we break down in the movie quite accurately on minutely, how this grifts take place. And I think most of us feel like in some way we're untouched with the dead people who we love. They appear on our dreams and that feels like a visitation. We talk to them in our minds and they don't respond, but makes us feel better to kind of feel like we're conversing with them. So you just need to take it one step further to say, yeah, and they're trying to reach out to you too. Yes. It takes only the smallest alibi to make that live believable. And some of it there are generalizations that are called black rainbow. And that's when you throw the net both sides. For example, you say you are quite naive, but at the same time you're very, very shrewd about who you trust or they tell you, you are very friendly, but ultimately you don't reveal yourself to everyone. And these are generalizations that fit all sizes. And that's what they are called black rainbow, because they encompass every color. And about the death, all you need is to know one or two things to make it seem like they are connecting. And we are narrative animals theory. So we love a good story. We want our lives to have a beginning and middle and a fitful ending. And unfortunately, life has a little madness to it. Narrative structure, but we like order. We want to organize things and deals and the fact that there is a life after this is something we are absolutely seduced by.

"And more. I'm Jay Williams. If I've learned one thing from my journey to the NBA and beyond, it's that we all have moments in life where our limits are tested. What I want to talk about is how we define those limits and what it means to exceed them. My show is a blueprint for how to do that. From some of the biggest names in sports, business, and culture. Listen to the limits from NPR. My guest Guillermo del Toro directed and co wrote the new film nightmare alley, a film noir set in the world of carnies and grifters. It's in theaters and streaming on Hulu and HBO Max. Nightmare alley was named one of the ten best films of 2021 by the American Film Institute. Del toro is also known for his two hellboy films, pan's labyrinth, and the shape of water which won four Oscars, including best picture and best director. Nightmare alley was adapted from a bleak 1946 novel. The novel was adapted into a 1947 film starring Tyrone Power. The new movie begins in 1939 as America was coming out of the depression and World War II was beginning. Bradley Cooper plays a man who just killed the person we later learn was his father. Buried him under the wooden floor, and set the house on fire, walking out as flames begin to surround him. He takes a bus, gets off at the end of the line, and follows a small man down the street to the carnival, where that man is one of the exhibits. Major mosquito, the tiniest man on record. Cooper becomes part of this traveling carnival, where folks don't care who you are or what you've done. He starts as part of the crew, then becomes part of the grift, as the assistant to a clairvoyant who can read minds and commune with people's deceased loved ones, with the help of a secret code and other acts of deception. But that small time, people pay a quarter of 50 cents or maybe a dollar, eventually Cooper learns the act, passes himself off as a spiritualist and mentalist, and becomes the headliner at top nightclubs for big money, conning wealthy industrialists, doctors and lawyers, but this is film noir, so things don't go well. The film is rich with questions about Carney Khan games, religion, and psychology, and the way that the lines between them can blur. Let's start with a clip from early in the film. Willem Dafoe plays the owner of the carnival, who's also the Barker. Here he is inviting people into the tent where the geek is the geek who bites the heads off chickens and feeds on their blood. However, to remember that this exhibit has been presented solely in the interest of science and education. Where did it come from? Is it a beast or is it a man? Come on in. Come on in and find out. This creature. Has been examined by the foremost scientists of both.

It's time for another break, let me reintroduce you if you're just joining us my guest is screenwriter and director Guillermo del Toro. His new film which he co wrote with Kim Morgan is called nightmare alley. We'll be right back. This is fresh air. The last time we spoke, you told me that you were exposed to a lot of violence as a child that you saw basically everything in your daily life, growing up in Guadalajara in Mexico. Not domestic violence, but you so violence on the street. You told me you saw people shooting at each other on the streets. You saw accidents. People burning to death stabbings, shootings. And going back over that interview before talking to you today, I thought, my goodness, what did you see all of that? Did you see somebody burning? You just saw somebody? Yeah. We were we were we were going to cinema one night, and we saw a little car, BW beetle, I believe it was. Crash against the tree. And the person driving him was unconscious and the car immediately burst to flames and the person inside we could not get to. And that was that occasion I saw a shooting in the open fields between two ranchers that were having a dispute. I saw horrible accident by the enrolled site when I was about four with many shotgun images that affected me forever. And so on and so forth. I mean, it's just it didn't happen all at once. It happened over the course of I don't know, 30 years or so. And thread of violence would happen every now and then. Very casually. I remember the mother types of violence like the phone calls from the kidnapping or being exposed to in 1968 the repression of the student revolt in Mexico City. You know, there is just this vibrating notion that life coexist with this violence that comes from living in Mexico. It doesn't need to be sensationalist. It's just sort of built.

"You can not be everything at all times. So I'm very much at peace with that. And whatever your limited time and knowledge of this world is in your lifespan, that's it. That was your share and then you leave it, what happens happens? And then you're gone. And that is, there's something comforting for me rather than anxiety generating. For me, the fact that we're not finite is very soothing. But that's because I'm Mexican perhaps. We do understand that we're all in the same train and they punch our ticket when we come in and the destination and the real north of life is that you're here only for a short time.

"And this is this is the essence of the book that he will never have enough because he has a hole in his heart, which speed very eloquently describes. So you're a new movie nightmare alley is adapted from a 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham. And he's an interesting character himself and so many ways. Just first of all, I want to mention that when he and his wife divorced, she married C. S. Lewis, who wrote the chronicles of Narnia, but the author William Lindsay Gresham, he was an alcoholic after he got cancer. He died by suicide in the hotel in New York where he wrote nightmare alley. But he was also a seeker. He converted to Christianity. He tried yoga..

So before I ask you the next question, I just want to mention that some might find the next little chapter upsetting. So just a little disclaimer about that. Getting back to the carnival in this movie, there's a display of newborn babies and fetuses preserved in, I guess it was formaldehyde in big glass jars. And Willem Dafoe the Barker describes these as babies gone wrong somehow in the maternal womb. Not for they're not for living. They died in childbirth, or even inside the mother. And there's one of these babies on exhibit in this glass jar, who seems to have a third eye. And it looks like there was maybe an autopsy that was done because the baby seems to be stitched up. And I know the last time we spoke, which was, after a film pan's labyrinth, you talked about how for a while you work next door to a mortuary. And one day, in that mortuary, you saw a pile of pile of dead infants and fetuses, what impact did it have on you to see this literal pile of babies who were corpses in the morgue? And why was there a pile of them? It was in the civilian hospital is what it's called in Mexico and there was it is a complex that has a hospital a morgue and a mental hospital. And I saw that and I instantly was hid by a wave of despair and hopelessness and all of my life up until then I had thought about a very humanistic very trauma entrepreneur God and I thought there's not such a thing, whatever the blends of the universe are somewhat indifferent to those.

Here he is inviting people into the tent where the geek is the geek who bites the heads off chickens and feeds on their blood. However, to remember that this exhibit has been presented solely in the interest of science and education. Where did it come from? Is it a beast or is it a man? Come on in. Come on in and find out..

"Like this insight into people interesting questions interesting answer so i was surprised to one hundred ten million but it totally makes sense especially for all of those decades where that was like a crucial piece of entertainment. Yeah yeah and i mean there wasn't much else. There weren't one hundred channels and yada yada yada so this was a big deal and cemented in the legacy of these crimes and kind of the interesting tangential legacy because obviously people aren't going around telling the story of the phantom killer but those crimes are the reason this urban legend grew like this and so then this legend itself continue to have ripple effects on pop culture. The story was featured in the nineteen eighty-one collection of short horror stories for children so scary stories to tell him the dark book series. Which is probably where i heard it from thinking back like i remember somebody had it in my elementary school and then is like ooh everybody has happened to get scale so book series has been hailed as an another quote a cultural touchstone for generation. Which i mean. I feel that from my own. I was ration- i think that's probably where i got it too because that sounds like right. Eighty one is kind of like right around when i had an awareness of that and other legends of that era. Yeah because it turned into a series and then also just being the youngest. Like i'm the youngest in my immediate family but i am drastically the youngest in all of my cousins ring up like twenty years older than me like the baby of his entire family. Except now there's a new generation behind me but yeah and then in two thousand seventeen. The books had collectively sold more than seven million copies. But like you hold that up against dear abby and that's nothing i mean wow damn. I'm just like shocked about dear. Abby hundred and ten million but there is a film made of the book series in two thousand nineteen which i really enjoyed it was produced by dear del toro..

Steven Soderbergh's 'No Sudden Move' to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

"There's a new steven soderbergh movie coming out. Oh really just assumed. There's one every month now. Accurate that is fair but i reference of course there in the question out of sight still my favorite steven soderbergh movie. And there's a reason for it. Soderbergh himself said when asked about making this movie. No sudden move which is a heist movie. The last time. I shot a movie in detroit with a great script and a great cast. Things worked out. Pretty well yeah. He made a masterpiece. This one though. Unlike out of sight is a period piece it said back in nineteen fifty five and is about a group of small time criminals who are hired to steal the documents. Seems like it's simple josh. I don't know if you've heard this before it's a heist that seems like it'll be simple And then something goes off if you want to make a move proposition for you. It's never your fault. is it offensive. Do you think i was skiing. I'm sure there's going to be some interesting socio political elements to the movie being set in detroit in the mid fifty s. A time where you know. Some of the big auto plants are starting to close. You've got this growing class and racial divide. So it's gonna be a grittier piece. It is going to be more akin to something like out of sight. Or even maybe kind of the limy versus the breezy flash of something like ocean's eleven but the cast just like with ocean's eleven is also a big big reason to see this movie and i guess clooney jack fully himself danny ocean himself was originally set to star and had to back out due to the pandemic but listen to this cast even without clooney.

"And, of course, he's also make patients either sometimes feel drowsy or affect their memory. Certainly can affect their ability to perform skilled labor, Um in in, In addition, if it is related to a lower extremity that pain being triggered by use of the prosthetic Can limit their ability to use their prosthetic whether it's walking or driving or standing at a job where I've had some patients tell me they could only really wear while they drive. But the second they're done. They take it off, and that's because of the nerve. That's Being compressed by the prosthetic current situation. So Dr Del Toro, How does this affect? I can only imagine it significantly affects people's quality of life When they are experiencing this type of pain. How dramatic must that be for them? Yes, it could be very dramatic. Particularly it's worse for people with upper limb amputations, arm amputations, the lower extremity or the leg amputations. Generally, those patients can tolerate process is pretty well. But the arm amputations didn't have a much more problematic time with both the residual limb pain in phantom pain and which makes it difficult to wear the prosthesis and then Difficult to use it and Dr Legit it's Why is that? Why is that is the pain more significant in patients who've had an upper extremity amputation than a lower extremity? You know, that's that's a question. We don't have the answer to it. Maybe because of how much of the brain is act is dedicated to that. We do have a large percentage of brain dedicated even your hand function. And and while um you know our feeder certainly how we get from point a to point B. We interact with the world with our hands, and it occupies a large percentage of our of our cerebral cortex and function so it with that absent feedback loop of Ah, the hand that's working. Telling our brain what it's doing. It seems that those signals getting amplified pretty quickly on, I think also is Dr Del Toro mentioned with the upper extremities. Usually it's related to a trauma rather than a vascular, or, um, diabetes related issue and traumatic amputations in general, especially those we know that have been suffered by our soldiers in the war theater. They tend to have a higher rate overall of having nerve type pain afterwards. And so how typically do you treat this? You'd mentioned narcotic pain medications. Obviously, we all know about the open opioid epidemic and trying to decrease the use of narcotic medication. So what is we'll talk in the next segment about this newer, innovative therapy that your group is doing? But what is the traditional way for years and years that we've used to treat these This residual limb in phantom limb pain that obviously affect so many amputees. Yeah. Sometimes you know if the soft tissue around the end of the limb is inadequate, or maybe doesn't have enough patting that can be revised Surgically. Sometimes that even mean shortening the limb, which, as Dr Del Toro said, is not ideal. Otherwise, like Dr Martin said, finding those nerves and trying to bury them. Whether it's in the upper extremities. Lower extremity was the traditional method because we didn't have a lot else to do with it. Sometimes there are devices that have been implanted ways to chemically, um, sterilize that nerve. But all of them have usually proven to have some x unacceptable rate of recurrence. Are there other types of medications that typically are prescribed Dr Del Toro for patients with chronic This phantom limb, a residual limb pain that are not narcotic pain medications that you've given. Yes, we use a lot of non opioid medications that occasions one called gabapentin. That's a fairly common drug. Most of the medications are either derivatives from anti depressants or anti seizure medicines. And how effective are those in in treating these? I mean, you mentioned is such a high prevalence of this. So how effective are those medications in treating that? Typically, they could be fairly effective. Usually, What I tell patients is it can lower the intensity and or frequency. Um, I also try to use in conjunction with that non pharmacologic or none medication measures like desensitizing and also there's something called Mirror therapy, which the therapist can teach patients how to do On. So I usually try to treat the phantom pain with sort of a multimodal type of therapy. What is the desensitization therapy that you mentioned? How does that work, so that's simply using different textures. On the end of the limb. We start with just something very softly condition use their own hand. Or the therapist hand on then building two different textures. And essentially what it's doing, or what we think is doing is sending messages to the brain saying, Hey, the limp stops here. The Phantom isn't there anymore and then the mirror therapy. Is that a similar kind of idea but using visual cues, or how does that work exactly? The mirror therapy Unfortunate. I wish I could show someone but imagine if you can. If you have an amputation, let's say Of your left hand. What you do is you point the mirror towards the right hand and let's say your experience. You're experiencing a cramp in the left hand. It's the phantom hand. But if you point the mirror and the right hand And simulate that cramp and then open and close your hand that believe the cramp Exactly how successful are these? I mean, that's amazing that that you provide that those things multimodal therapy. How successful has it been? You know if we started early, we've had fairly good success. But if it's started, it's started later. It's probably not a successful so I would say it could be pretty good, but we have to do it early on, and we have to get something. In terms of sort of a regular regimen that the patient continues to do. And does it depend on the type of amputation they've had as well? Does that influence how successful of therapy is there? Not there. Does it more the timing like you said, Well, I think the timing is certainly important. I do think that probably upper extremities might respond to it. Um, somewhat better if we could do it early on, if we could be more consistent just because his doctoral a Judas mentioned the representation in the brain for the upper extremities so much more likely than in the foot or leg. Fantastic. Well, thank you all so much for everything you do for patients at M C W and join us shortly for our next segment where we will meet one of your patients. Whether you.

Hellboy talk with Tim

"Are seeing more of change. I think in response to books like Hell Boyer Black Hammer. Where because there is a firm time line and things are happening characters have to react to the things that are happening even if they don't have full context for what's happening so that's what you like about hell boy be. Pr General. Think helpful like you said Houston's Gone Yeah Houston's gone what are you GonNa do hell boy died? What are we going to do? And that's another thing stopped me please. If I'm going off the rails in the world of hell boy. Bpd WHAT HAVE YOU? Death is final unless it isn't and what I mean by that is when like okay but speculate for just a second over. I'm going to spoil recent events in Batman that's okay. I'll put spoiler at the beginning. The Alfred was killed by Bain in Batman a couple months ago Alfred. Dying is a huge deal. It's a very good story. I'll be really hard pressed to say in five years. We're not going to have comics with Alfred. M I think we'll see Alfred Comeback in the hell boy world if there was a a character analogous to Alfred. If he died he'd be dead. There's only been three characters I can think of who haven't stayed dead One of them is Huma Hunky list which is hard work as say I can read it forever. A monkey lists named Roger. Who's liveability is questionable? At best the other two and I could be wrong as well like I'm not concrete giving you information but This based off the best of my recollection the the other two characters would be Rasputin. Who is the main villain and Hell boy himself and when hell boy is brought back it's not his choice. There was There was a thing that I want to say. Scott Allie who was an editor and a writer on BP said is If he said death is final and things will break and if things are repaired they will still remain broken. So if you like break glass table you can put that glass table back together. It's not going to be as strong as it was. And that's kind of a tenant and B P R D if we're gonNA break it we can put it back together but it's not gonna be the same as a storyteller in a fan of of character the way hell boy and it's related books handle stakes is so it's so unlike anything else you're gonNA find in modern pop culture and he loves. Mike loves the supernatural world. Because I hadn't read hell boy before but I read Joe Gholam which is one of my aches works and it has a very supernatural tinder taste to it for lack of a better word but he really loves that supernatural world when I was reading up about how he came up with hell boy and the Supernatural. In general he started. Reading Brahms stroker's Dracula and just got sucked into the all. The supernatural world and missed. Go along with that and even see that. In Gotham by gaslight. Yeah I think that's where he got a lot of this inspiration because like you said. Eprdf just kind of a supernatural monster story arc on each in how he tries to solve this mystery so to speak. But I really like those like you said the BP because they're short. In general. At least the ones I read are fairly short. They're kind of wins a call because they take place in the past share. Well it's it's interesting because Mike men ULA has trusted so many people with his world. Geoff Johns has written for PR. D- we've got Chris. Roberson does a lot of stuff Scott. Allie Gabriel Bah and Fabio Moon. Who ARE TWINS? They've done some work on a book called. B P R D vampire. Let's just phenomenal. It's so good Abe Sapien had his own series for awhile and there were another set of twins that were working on the art in that and their names escape me off hand but pitch perfect. They're wonderful the those twin they're now working on Lucifer for DC like the the Black Label Sandman books but It's just so good There's a horror comic called Herro county that's written by. Cullen Bunn the art and that is done by Tyler Crook and there was a tiny little bit of animosity because Tyler Crook was the second main artists on E. P. R. D. And when he went over to do Harrow County kind of left He left the crew in a bit of a bind and everybody was a little upset but also he's doing the work of his career on. Harrow. County That's how we got Lawrence Campbell as the main artist on be prd through throughout the run of like hell boy traditionally the art in that is either Mike Minneola or Mike. Minneola esque yes. There's a there's a very good so pretty still pretty rough so to speak but it I think it fits in his universe. Yeah it absolutely does. If we're not getting Mike Manolo. We're getting somebody like Dunkin for Griego who has a very manolas style over. Mvp what we got was a completely different visual. Take and we had guy. Davis was the main artist for play frogs. Hell on earth. We saw Tyler Crook and then going into the devil you know we had Lawrence Campbell. And they bright. They brought a very interesting like real world. Visual take on what Mike Minneola drew as more than esoteric stylized monster world and just like injected it with like this fierce ground level realistic take in it so to to see how Lake Dunkin for draws Abe sapien versus how Mike Minneola draws EP and versus. How Tyler Crook Draws Abe sapien versus? It's so it should not narrative Lee speaking work. It shouldn't do it Michael did a whole issue of of that. We have a painted issues that are done by just masters of their art. And it's it's so wonderful and and just the fact that you can have these visual styles who divorced from divorce from the words divorce from the writing you would never know that just because this character looks a little more cheesy in. This character. Looks a little more realistic. There is no. There's no what if in the hell boy universe whenever you read a story As far as the comics the short stories are a little different. There's pros and all that but we're talking about the comics there's not Lak- what if Abe Sapien was fighting in World War. Two like it's there's none of that every everything you read actually happens To those characters in the world of hell boy and having such unique creative voices all working in tandem to tell this one epic it should not by any right work and if it does work it should not work nearly as well as this does and it is so much fun it does. It's a fun a fun book. Speaking of you talked about Abe Sapien. What is your favorite character from hell boy? Do you bomb or is it a cop out answer cop out answer and then maybe might cop out. Answer is Every every major comic book company I believe has a trinity of some kind so. Dc Has Batman. Wonder Woman Superman Marvel's got Captain America. Thor and iron man You could argue. That image has spawned in which blade and someone else that I can't think of offhand For Hell boy it's definitely you've got an expansive universe of characters but it comes down to Abe Liz in hell boy and if I get one of those three I'm going to have a good time and be in for completely different reasons there so three very different characters In the in the Gemmell del Toro movies. They had a romance between. Liz and hell boy does not exist in the comics. That's not a thing If anything Liz and Abe kind of have an unspoken thing that nobody ever acts on and that's kind of cool because you've got fire and water and that's like a neat neat thing like that. Yeah it's really fun. But if you were like gun to my head me pick a character man. It's GonNa be a tie between it's GonNa be a tie between Captain Daimyo from be PRD. Who is in the newest? Hell boy movie. He's the the wear Jaguar. I love him or Johann Johann Krauss whose an echo plasma ghost in a in a sealed suit don't make can't choose between those two a close honorable mention would be roger but I can live without roger it's fine but But no I love and that goes to the military guy in me I love. Diageo is a traditional military guy and he is just he's hired basically to militarize the PRD and get them to work as a cohesive unit and he just comes in and he's like all right. Look I'm done I'm done like I cannot handle. Whatever it is you guys are doing. I need you all. Just cut your drama. And let's do this. And he just has no time for any of the. He's he's not ignorant to the fact that he's working with monsters he's he gets to the point where he's like. I don't care that you're monsters. We have work to do. And I absolutely love that. And then Johann who was voiced by Seth McFarland and the second held boy movie the The Golden Army In the comics he is so flawed that he is. He's the most fun to read. Because you you just like him you just like him and he makes some really dumb stupid mistakes but they're mistakes that you could see yourself making and you see some emphasis me speaking of myself when I say you but I see so much of myself in him that when he makes a mistake. I'm like own own. No real world content is one hundred percent what I would do and we would all be in so much trouble So I absolutely adore the dichotomy of those two and they don't get a wall but No it's my it's A. It's a complete cop-out I answered it twice with no actual answer. That's okay. I like the fact that like you said it is kind of whimsical. Boys Got A. Would you say it dry sense of humor? I would say Ri- I think is is not so much dry it's like. He knows he knows what he's just so he's just kind of he's perpetually forty and he could you imagine being being against. I'm in my late thirties. Man If you just I would be unstoppable if I had energy and I see hell boy as just perpetually old enough to know better young enough to not care and he kind of can get away with

Hellboy talk with Tim

"Did you. I read hell boy win did I I. I've I read hell boy when I was. I really getting into non Superhero comics when I was in the military and it was around the first time. I want to say it was around the time. The first Guillermo del Toro movie came out. Two Thousand Four. I believe Man I'm old and it's very interesting too because hell boy. I came out in nineteen ninety four. Yes and so thinking thinking of. It's ten years and that was an accomplishment And now here we are twenty twenty two having a relevant conversation about L. Boy. That's back issues to get in. Because he's ninety two thousand four win. The movie came out. They had They had reprinted all of the trades in the traditional red format that you've seen on elbow trades red banner. Banner across the boy. Yeah and there was a bunch of stickers like hell boy now in theaters or something like that but I picked up the first volume of that and I was like well. I'll check it out and it didn't resonate with me at all. I didn't like it. I didn't like the art I didn't and at the time to I was at a point where I was defining like. I'm not going to go off on a tangent about belief systems or whatever but I was I was kind of going on On my own kind of personal spiritual journey and I didn't like the idea of taking a demon and putting it in a spotlight and I had a real issue with a boy from and it just kind of bothered me and also I was a child in able to discern. I I was I was an adult. You know what I mean I I was. I was still trying to define what my moral compass is in relationship to the entertainment that I took in And just at the time hell boy was not right for me just to clarify you saw the movie. And then he picked up the comic books. Okay Yep actually I think I think I bought the comic in anticipation of the movie but it was because the movie was coming out that I was GONNA go see us out so you weren't really impressed that much. I didn't land with me. It wasn't at the time I was into more of a more of a clean style And Mike Manila's art is is arguably anything but like clean lines in that was just just my preference at the time like I was really into the Geoff. Johns Teen Titans Which had a much much more traditional line work and again. This was at a time where I'm venturing out of superheroes for the first time And it was it was kind of interesting so hell boy has been a thing that I was aware of but I'd always associated the comics as being not nearly as good as the movies It doesn't help that Gamble del. Toro's one of my favorite directors of all time but let's fast forward a little bit. I picked up. B P R D play frogs and that is basically like a four volume omnibus said like it was the the hell boy at one point breaks off from the B. Prd that'd be prd becomes. Its own thing and be. Prd's interrupt his bureau for Paranormal Research. And Defense yes those for those of you. That may not know. Now I'll get into it but I read. Bp plague of frogs volume one. Because it didn't have specifically I was like well. I didn't wasn't interested in hell boy but I was kind of interested in in the fish guy kind of interested in Liz. Who's the fire starter? And I was kind of intrigued. What does that mean when Hell Boys not around? What is that book? And that I fell in love with Hell Boy. The hell boy world through eprdf bpd was written for me And there was a time right towards the tail end of plague of frogs where I hadn't read any hell boy comics but not hell boy specifically but I but I I've been eating up. Bp already so much At that point to the hell boy trades and this is still true to an extent are in and out of print so sporadically that. It's difficult to get everything so. Bp or something. I was pretty familiar with going into last year. Twenty nine hundred twenty eighteen man. I'm so old time. Time is all time impressive so when the new movie came out eighteen nineteen asa last year's leading into last year so the tail and a twenty eighteen darkhorse started releasing the hell boy omnibus editions. And what those are four soft cover books that encompass hell boy from his first issue in the seat of destruction all the way through the The hell boy in hell macro series and then they also released a couple short story collections. And a few other things here and there and they also released Be Prd the devil you know which kinetically ends the story that began in Nineteen Ninety Four. So it was. It was a very big year for hell boy in two thousand nineteen and it was the first time that for fan like me. I was able to actually sit down and read it. And and with the context of of being a discerning adult you know in my in my mid to late thirties versus versus. You know more or less. An intellectual young adult in my early to mid twenties approaching the material was completely different. Avs Very very very very interesting I still maintain for me personally be. Prd is the superior book but in IT IS THE HELL. Boy Universe in Hell. Boy is the crux of it And so I do. Identify myself as a hell boy fan. Do you went from two thousand four. But basically didn't get into hell boy until twenty eighteen. Oh Boy Himself the proper what about be. Prd Though captured your attention that maybe the hell boy that you picked up into two thousand four. That didn't so I've thought about this a lot and my elevator pitch for the B. PRD is For people who come into the store and are like Oh why should why should I read this book? B P R d from me is the X. Files if they were investigated by monsters. It's really fun. It's just bizarre cases. And instead of having mouldering scully who were you know very human characters? One's one's a rational skeptic and the other isn't in this instead this time we have. There's a wear Jaguar. There's a fish guy. There's a fire starter. There's a humongous Monkey lous excuse me As well as a few a few other regular like every day soldiers thrown into the mix as well and it's very relatable versus for me. Hell boy that the thing that the thing that separates me from hell boy is. I'm not a demon from hell regardless of what my mother will tell you and I wasn't around for World War Two didn't fight Nazis. I didn't I didn't have like I don't have that worldview but what I do have is a knowledge for me specifically. I know this isn't going to be true for everybody but I. I know what it's like to live on a military base. I know what it's like to have that structure. There was a point of view. I had from that and the inner struggles like how everybody in the unit relies on each other. But also sometimes you just can't stand each other and also there's work to do not to mention the the drama in the book is fantastic. Unlike most comics like you go pick up a marvel comic right if you go in and pick up the newest issue of Captain America. Captain America is that time kind of flows so every time you read Captain America. He was thought out. I want to say about ten to fifteen years ago. Regardless O- doesn't matter if you read if you read captain America in the sixties. He was thought out. You know he was thought out in the sixties there but because it was you know. He was in the ice for twenty years but as the decades go on instead of being in the ice for twenty years using the answer. Thirty Years Forty Years Fifty Years. Whatever and we don't directly talk about how. Captain America was thought out in the sixties. Because he wasn't anymore and boy and you know when I say in hell boy the Hello Universe to include. Cpr D to include Crimson Lotus. All that stuff dates are sat and they're generally set the year that the book comes out so seed of destruction number one came out. It was nineteen ninety four and so that event actually introduced us to the concept of these frog monsters and it was supposed to be just a one time thing in the year two thousand. I WANNA say two thousand two thousand one the first issue of be. Prd came out and so from there. That's that's what started. What's now called the plague of frogs storyline and that brought back the frog people who were introduced in Nineteen ninety-four in Nineteen ninety-four. We have hell boy Liz. And Abe in two thousand those characters of aged and so we go into twenty twenty. Now I guess if we look at twenty nine thousand nine I believe was the tail end of the devil you know from. Eprdf was wrapping up everything. But Liz in that is a middle aged woman. She's not she's you know she's a bit more mature she's a bit older and the artwork represents that in the way she's experienced her life has has represented that as well and so one of the things that I think is really cool and I forgot where my point was but one of the things I like about the elbow universe. Is that the elevator. Pitch for the elevator stopped a long time ago. But it's there's a very real sense of time and there's a word I'm looking for. The stakes are real. There's there's a there's A. There's a very real sense. That time is a factor Life is precious and and things have to be accomplished or the world's going to

Death Stranding - From Kojima Productions

"On today's episode. We're discussing discussing the video game death stranding which is the latest title from famed game producer. Hideo Kojima and for the playstation four. It released earlier here this month and joining me now is neither who's written about. The game is played the game and he has lots of thoughts on it. Mike thank you for being here. Sure Brett It's good to see in the podcast studio radio. It's been a long time yet has all right. Let's start with The game because it looks absolutely bizarre. I think one of the images that sticks out for a lot of people when they hear the name. Death Stranding is Norman Reedus. A lot of people know from the walking dead holding a baby with no shirt on. Looks Very Weird. What is happening? Yeah it's There's been a lot of interesting thoughts about this game. Since it got teased about three and a half years ago I think it was three but it may have been at the video game awards event I forget I wasn't. I don't think I was there so I saw online anyway. So they've been working on a game. They'd wanted to do a spin. Off of the Silent Hill franchise franchise but that fell through and Kajima left Konami and started his own company. And this is the bank the project they were working working on. So it's a Sifi. I probably a little more than near future but beyond near future And it's another. What are those a post apocalyptic situations and the United States has kind of fallen into disarray? There's been some Explosions is end. There's this thing called there's these astral looking ghoulish things that cause Rainstorms that kill people and all kinds of craziness. I mean it's really hard to explain it But Norman redesigns character is Sam and Sam has some special powers that he he he can come back to life. Which of course is perfect? If you're playing a video game because all they're gonNA die constantly or at least I do and he also also can somewhat since when these Bad guys are called. Bt So I don't know if that for bad things or what so but whenever they're around and he tries to have his guard up. The baby is called B. B. and they're these. I'm not sure I have this totally figured out yet either but they're like beyond fetuses but their unborn babies that are kept in this embryonic fluid type thing you can see through them through the container so you can wave to bb and and try to console bb when you get in trouble but beebe and Sam Create a connection that help them combat the bts as they try to make their way across the. US What your goal is at least initially I'm not very far in the game. I think I may be nine or ten hours into the game and if I understand right. It's like a forty to fifty our game. Your job is to kind of connect connect the US at various outposts like turn the Internet on or whatever and with this futuristic Internet. You have these three D. printers enters. That are all around the country. You could build you know stuff for you. You know all kinds of Supplies and you can build bridges and things like that which gets to the bigger theme of what Kajima says the game is is is a response to modern society. Diety and I don't know if he started out as a political statement but with brexit and trump in the. US says you know we're building walls calls when we should be and cutting ourselves off from others when we should be connecting. So that's you know literally you're connecting the the US in this game so he's are you totally confused now. I'll I'm absolutely confused but it falls in line I think with Kojima and general. Well that's always been the thing about Kojima Jima is. He's best known for the metal gear series which started out in the original Nintendo video game console and his morphed onto other consoles has been his biggest hit but he's gotten a a lot of the same reputation as far as these stories. That are Super Complex into a lot of people very confusing and convoluted How I mean? What's the best comparison Arison for him? I'm thinking in terms of movies in other mediums. He's just a very unique different guy. Well it was a good answer for you and it's very literally Part of the game. Gemmell. Touro is in the game. The the the the Director who did of water and did PAN's labyrinth and other films Gero plays a integral non playable character. Who Helps you along and studies you and help you build your offensive capabilities capabilities. So maybe someone like that. I mean there's definitely an atmosphere created in this game and if you've seen any of del Toro's films there's definitely atmospheres. Atmospheres created In his in his films What's interesting about this game is when you aren't being attacked by the bts you have this photo realistic world you're going through and what's kind of made the game a love it or hate it Thing now it's been out a week and a half or so is your kind of just People joke that you're a Amazon delivery guy you know. Oh you're delivering things and you're running here delivering stuff and get an order and delivering stuff and along the way you fight some things and you and you deliver

Medical Information is opinion based on facts of a crime and should not be interpreted as medical advice or treatment listener discretion is advised welcome to cheer cranberry. I'm Jill and under the disappearance a fifty three year old Charlotte Hughes for her paradise like home home set off an investigation that led to the search for a serial killer in Panama in two thousand ten share had moved with her husband key to Boca del Toro Panama to live out her dream on their own private island but after she keeps separated share was gone in eccentric neighbor taken over her property it turned out that share was not the only missing person in the area. Someone was killing Americans in Panama and taking possession question of their property when all is said and done six Americans had been killed when the killers home was searched police found stolen checkbooks it cards jewelry purses got amunition and gold dental fillings crowns in a glass jar. William Hulbert were North Carolina native known to his victims as wild bill cortes had become well known among Boca Ex Patriots accurate American family of three read disappeared from the area bill and his wife had moved into their home and converted a boathouse into a private bar which they call the Jolly Roger Social Club the bar was decorated with the skull and crossbones flag in it was opened for partying on the weekends but disappearances piled up neighbors decided there was something something wrong. The police came in and discovered bodies buried in shallow graves but by then while bill and his wife were already on the run they fled through Costa Rica and we're finally captured on the Nicaraguan border join us at the quiet end for this stunning tale of theft murder in real estate ate fried after being extradited to Panama while bill confessed to his crimes but showed little remorse for all of the painting caused he would explain in what he did in how he did it but the question of why will forever haunt the left one of his victims so this is my first Panamanian Indian dear our first enemy case I believe absolutely so this is Bell Boa. It's brewed by service Syria Nacional in in Panama kind of the National Bureau of Panama and I'll preface by sands a pretty crappy year okay but the the good news it doesn't have much aroma or taste kind of sweet corn malt that type of stuff may do little herbal but the important thing it served cold and it's nice and Crisp and refreshing. If you've ever been the Panama it's pretty damn hot and humid down there so these these little buddy sled down pretty nicely I nine guess that's about the best I can say for it. Well thanks for the effort recalled science all right thank you. Let's open it up okay. We'll share these the quiet the head end. I hope everybody's not to spoil my some of the other good beers we've had because this isn't what you call good beer but it is sunny and warm. Maybe not as humid as Panama you're so they'll probably be enjoyed in well. It seems like if a beer is not great to get a cold enough. It can still be refreshing and be salvaged for that purpose if nothing else that's what we're looking for. What are you start our story today Dickie Okay so William Jason Hobart was an only child he grew up going going by his middle name Davidson but later in life Hugo by bill his father worked for Farm Machinery Company and he grew up in a nice two story home an highschool bill involved in sports and got very serious about football and bulked up possibly with steroids who knows he married his girlfriend in nineteen ninety eight? Her name was Ryan Dunlap his only eighteen years old they had their first child within a year and into more over the next four years so bill worked as a landscaper year round and Ryan stayed home with children. There were so young and many people were impressed by the amount of responsibility that the couple seemed of taking nine after bills parents divorced the couple move their family into the home or bill grownup taking over the home from his mother but there was talk about building a steroid abuser and again. This is a kid who booked up quite a bit in high school always playing football so that's where the rumors started and they continue and bill seemed abnormally bulky and had a temper those steroid rages we talk about the first sign that may bill wasn't quite right psychologically was when the family dog disappeared bill told Ryan that he wanted to put the dog down even even though his perfectly healthy and good with the kids he never contacted the vet and Ryan believe that shot the dog and dumped his body and this became a belief that was shared throughout the neighborhood. Another local landscaper would say that bill wanted to make a fortune but he didn't want to work for it. That's been my dream. Let's not that uncommon right you wanNA start a business. You do have to be willing to work your ass off what yeah back so inevitably bills landscaping business failed Oh he buttons Elson suits and ties after that and he said that he had political aspirations I don't know where that came from and wanted to hang out with a higher society church even considered running for mayor right but France were beginning to notice that bill was very verbally abusive to Ryan and then another dog disappeared food bill opened a pool hall and build a local TV ad for it but he was really this over the top personality which he is pretty well for whereas business but still he wasn't putting in the hard work and it failed after only a few months in two thousand three Rian Kevin Hoover met bill when he joined the Gym Jim The bodyshop fitness center in Hendersonville Billy Kevin began hanging out together lifting weights working out and bill give them the impression that he was a businessman on his way up even though his ventures were continuing to fail when Kevin Hoover his third bodyshop Jim in two thousand four he he agreed to let bill help manage it so bill could learn about how to run a business. He would even get a salary until he was ready to purchase his own franchise. So these people took command basically yes pretty good con man Dick so he could convince people of things yeah. They were thinking they were going to groom him to eventually have zone franchise. Yes they were helping him out that way twenty year old Laura Michelle Reese was working for the hoover's and she was doing cleaning and light office work at the Gyms uh-huh and Mel decided that he keeper working with him the Third Jim but then things got really weird. Marie Hoover visited the gym and saw that there was no equipment you purchased yet and bill at least an apartment near the gym rather than commute to his family home which was just about forty five minutes away not a horrible commute but then he moved in with Laura Michelle Reese into the apartment then he began sending handwritten notes to Marie telling her to be proud of her white race she threw them away but it did raise some concerns and she talked to her husband Kevin about it bill was also somewhat obsessed with the Sopranos TV show and he would tell Marie that he wanted to become someone like Tony Soprano so kind of a Mafia guy yeah. That's that's a very good aspiration to have. Don't you think so red flag huge yeah yeah so Kevin. Marie managed to explain away bills odd behavior until they were from the bank that some unusual expenses were being charged for the body shop. The bill was Managing Bill had written business checks for new TV a mattress and other not business related items in the amount spent was large. It was be tweeting twenty and twenty five thousand dollars so Kevin did confront bill about this and Bill's wife Ryan found out that bill was is living with Laura Michelle reese around the same time so the couple separated in May of two thousand four and bill. Laura moved away after he was gone. The hoovers learned that bill had not only written unauthorized checks he'd actually contacted a real estate broker about selling Jim that he'd been managing which belonged to Kevin Hoover Hoover so that's the ball there to do that where I guess but he's learning right in a bad way here yeah

Should You Really Punch an Animal in the Nose If Attacked?

"Today's episode is brought to you by the capital one venture card the capital one venture card you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase everyday and you can use those miles toward travel expenses like flights hotels the rental cars and more just book and pay for your travel using your venture card and redeemer miles toward the cost capital one. What's in your wallet. Credit approval required capital one bank u._s._a. N._a. Look into brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff. Lauren vogel bomb here. Let's say something has gone horribly wrong and you're in a physical fight with another human person. If that person punched you in the face what make you back off some might say that getting punched in the nose hurts like unreasonably so and that they would disengage others might argue that it would merely incite their ire after the initial shock kolin would kick in and then make even quicker work of their opponent when it comes to animal attacks the answer to whether a punch to the nose would stop an attack pretty much lies with what kind of animal you're considering punching and let's just make it clear right now that you should do all you can to avoid provoking animal attack and that if you're not being attacked punching any kind of animal is means for admittance into the special hell but that aside let's talk about a few different animals that have a reputation for needing a good stick in the nose and and whether that would actually help save your skin. The shark is the animal. Perhaps most commonly singled out for a defensive sucker punch. The rumor is that a good hard punch to the snout is going to send a shark reeling. There are a couple of problems with this. Though one is that it's super hard to punch anything underwater making dump on the nose pretty unrealistic another issue while shark noses are sensitive their gills and is are much more vulnerable punching one in the nose probably wouldn't do enough damage to stun it and you've got the added problem of needing to get a little too close for comfort to its enormous gaping jaws so perhaps no on punching sharks unless it's actively early and aggressively up in your face your best bet would generally be to swim away quickly and quietly as possible and keep in mind that we're not sharks preferred snacks.

Katzenberg, Jeffrey Free And Ten Minute discussed on The Frame

"You wanna watch a movie would you rather watch it at home or in a movie theater how about another option watching that film on your smartphone but not all that one's rather in one ten minutes snippet a day that's jeffrey free katzenberg thinking behind his short form mobile video platform currently in the works it's called quimby in the name of short quick bites there's still a lot of questions about how it all work before its launch next year but so far quimby has been able raised more than a billion dollars in drawing some top creative talent laying low way senior tv writer at variety has been looking into what ob excitement is about quitting doesn't launch for almost another year actually it'll come out in april twenty twenty twenty but i think the reason why everybody is so hyped up about it is because you've got to story leaders one from tech meg whitman former e b and hewlett packard ceo and this giant of industry jeffrey katzenberg who was at one time the head of dreamworks and walt disney studios and he's really the reason why people are so excited about it right people are excited about it because he's excited about it people believe in because he believed in it he's been selling the service as eight mobile platform that allows these quick bites which is what could be a short for short form content that'll have premium serialized scripted content unscripted content news news and sports and it'll be released in these five to ten minute chunks daily andy idea is that when you're waiting for coffee or you have a dull moment in your day those times when you're whipping out your phone and you're looking at twitter or facebook or something else and you're just putting around phone instead of doing that you'll go quickly and you'll watch five minutes of a sand rainy horror anthology or ten minutes of an anna kendrick buddy comedy instead so he has raised i think more then a billion dollars to fund this and right now it seems like he has attracted some really interesting talent to make content frequency i was in a van a couple of weeks ago where i ran into antwon fuqua who were a lot of people know from the training day movie he's also made the equalizer with denzel washington and he was producing a movie frequency and he was telling me that it was very attractive even though i think this movie was gonna be caught up into ten minute chunks what is jeffries pitch been to the creative community would be paid responding to well a big part of the appeal for creators is he intellectual property because the way it's format it would be will exclusively license their projects for seven years but after the first two years be rights revert back to beans creators and filmmaker so they'll be able to go and repackage this series they'll be able to hopefully seamlessly thread together all of these five to ten minute chunks of these stories and repackage package them as a feature film as a two and a half hour project but they could then go sell to another service so that's really attractive thing and also again there's just see appeal of katzenberg himself because he has been so successful in this industry i mean an wants so i told me that sitting down with jeffrey katzenberg is like sitting down with the godfather yeah although if you look at some of the movies he made at the walt disney company and some of his animated movies there are some questions about jeffrey storytelling taste will save that conversation for something what is the financial model because a lot of people right now are thinking about disconnecting subscriptions that they might have to their cable or satellite company or who were netflix so how are they trying to position it financially and what do they expect you people so they'll be selling two versions of quip me they'll be ad supported version for five dollars a month and any ad free version for seven dollars a month and it sounds like a small amounts but you also consider that people are i don't know if they're near saturation but there are certainly so many different streaming platforms out there you've got netflix and amazon and who and all of these different subscription services that people are already paying for so that even when you cut the cord you've got sometimes a hefty bill at the end of the month when you combine all these so that'll be a real test will be deceived they can break through that barrier and get people to fork over five to seven bucks a month for this of of course they're bringing some real alias talent and that's where their strength wli again you've got a project from kia motors del toro don cheadle liam hemsworth a you know tyra banks chrissy teagan and you know i think the other question here is also whether there will be on de creator side resale value for them after they were allowed to take their project off of quickly or after they're allowed to repackage their project from could be and sell it to a different platform so if there are detractors in town or at least doubters what would you say is a consistent question that they have about quickly what is gonna be the obstacles to its success there are a couple of different questions that came up in are reporting one of them is do people want this model people were still used to benching on tv these days when you're going to netflix their whole thing is the bench model and it's this also isn't appointment tv it's sort sort of a a daily thing that comes on five ten minutes a day but what if i want to watch the whole movie so in that case do i just wait for a month for all of these daily releases it come on the service and then say binge watch them all anyway on a saturday afternoon a so that's definitely a very unique model that hasn't really been done before another question that people have is people are so used to getting something for nothing specially from a mobile device store people going to be willing to fork over five and seven bucks a month for quickey a get another question is will the viewership justify the cost there are some really high numbers that were being thrown around a believe entrances what's project is gonna cost about fifteen million dollars which is certainly more than you could say for a lot of other short for mobile video out there andy clippings model is subscriptions an ad revenue and that's how they're planning on monetize ing they're stored as a but it'll be interesting to see whether these dubs an ad revenue justify be amount that they're investing

"And it's from Mike. You'll yeah. And so it's kind of like do I not like the creator? This is creation anyone else. Yes. Sure. I I went in with with a high expectation actually the trailers didn't completely. But there was an are rated red band trailer that came out about two weeks prior. That was like this could be a lot of fun. This fun ride. The movie's release. Also yesterday way is way more blunt. Yeah. It just shows a lot of the R ratings stuff. Yeah. Yeah. But I I'm a huge fan like Tom of the del Toro movies, ape sapiens. My boy all day shot. It's Doug Jones. But I I'm a big fan of David harbors. Well, I'm a huge fan of stranger things so him being cast. I think was was great. He's a lot of charisma Milla Jovovich stole the show for me. I don't think she's aged in twenty years. She did literally make a deal with the devil. Appropriate. I honestly think for me she was the most interesting part of the entire film. I would've loved to see a film with just on the blood witch. Yeah. But I left with with some baggage. I liked a lot of it. I think a lot of the a lot of people left saying it felt like a lot of yet. And I get that. I still see the story line. A lot of the vignettes were really cool. But I do wish they had focused a little more on the are three inside of things, and maybe a little more. But all in all I mean, it was fun. Plus Merlin was not chill. She's not no. Yeah. I I went in I had zero at I really had no expectations. I kind of disliked the trailer like off from it. I didn't really the trailer was jealously. Yeah. It was totally off. But unfortunately, like, I didn't even know about the rotten tomatoes score going into it. And I was like I'm gonna go in blind. Let's see what what happens and my wife elbow, the trailer pretty much reflected with how about the movie, which I found the tone to be all over the place. Yes. Throughout the entire thing. The like I was taken out of the movie a few time in psalms by direction. Yeah. Yeah. But but yeah, basically, I didn't have I I didn't really enjoy my time. I will say real quick this thing the run two meals thing on Twitter they had a fucking at going on. And it's like shows like a counter of the run tomatoes score when like up to ninety alway down to fucking nine. I was like this is not a nice. Like, why would you do this so rotten tomatoes? Did it? Why would you do this like I don't know that just irritated me? Why they did a commercial? It was like a video that leash shows like the flame don't hell boy. The number goes up. It's at fifteen percent, which I'm just like, I don't know which digging. Digging sound how this how you tell people not to watch a movie. Yeah. And I also agree with you that I don't think it deserves a fifteen percent rating..

With all these streaming services films knobs have to be in seventh heaven, right right from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. It's Oscar season a time when we celebrate the history of film, but what if you want to actually sit down and watch some classics that was the selling point of one streaming service film struck that AT and T recently shuttered fills drug showcased directors like Fellini, Kurosawa Kubrick. It was the darling of Sinophile for the two years it existed given that streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon seemed to be focused on making their own original content. Could the golden age of streaming actually mean that film history falls through the cracks and Hornets is senior film critic for the Washington Post. She has high level thoughts on the death of film strike and the future of classic film. She says film strike never released its subscriber numbers her best educated. Guess is about one hundred thousand compared to about one hundred and forty million Netflix subscribers that's tiny. But Hornets says the fan base for classic or indie films has. Value beyond sheer size. It's a highly engaged audience. It's a very loyal audience. I mean, they have value. So whether the movies themselves, quote, unquote, don't have monetary value. I would maintain that they do have value. You know, in terms of the people who watch them, and what they are willing to pay to watch them, and it's not just everyday viewers, but also filmmakers who care about access to a rich array of film history the day after films struck announced it was closing. I happen to spend time with Barry Jenkins who won the Oscar a few years ago, his movie moonlight won the Oscar for best picture. He's just out this year with an exquisite movie called spiel street could talk he is an ecstatic student of film, he's constantly reaching back into the cannon into the history of the medium to enlarge and elaborate on his own emerging vocabulary and language and so for someone like him he was Crespi. On that it was going away. Because you know, when you talk about people like Barry Jenkins or Paul Thomas Anderson or Guillaume or del Toro, all of whom came out very very vociferously to support the site a resource like film struck helps these emerging artists to find their voice. And then it's also educating all of us viewers in terms of what they're doing. I think it was sighted of Warner Brothers and their corporate overlord AT and T not to kind of see the value in that. As the new streaming giants court the best in the business to make their original content or today says showing support for the canon of great film could be a hook. I think that's what Netflix has proven this year so aggressively going after people like I'll find so Koran and spending so much on the Oscar campaign for his movie for people like Martin scores says he will these are film lovers. And I mean, I think as they're trying to impress these tours and convince them. To come with them because they love art, and they love or tourism, a show of good faith would be to express your support of this archival legacy work. I mean, I think that could really sway somebody. She says despite the demise of film strike. There are other ways to stream vintage movies art house and cult films and other non mainstream cinema. There's a subscription service fan door. Also, canopy with a K available with your public library card and the library of congress L O, C dot gov. I got admit I'm not a major film buff. So I asked Hornets for suggestions on what to watch something. That's not a superhero movie, she suggested not a film, but a TV show on stars. And I kind of freaked out. Can I tell you what I'm obsessed with it's it's it's not even the one. I'm obsessed with speaking of stars is counterpart. I'm totally caught up on her part. We did this last week. I just don't know what I'm gonna do. I'm beside myself. I it's so good. Yeah. There's out. I've pretty good taste. I'm jed Kim. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

I'm in the middle of trying to host well, hold on the Roma says that you can. And I say that no way you can actually bench press two buses guys. I'm very strong. I don't know if I bench press us come on Dwayne. And that might be something that we would do. Okay. So now, we're through the monologue. Yeah. It's time for sketch. I'm going to have to showcase some characters. Sure. Okay. I guess what? I wanna do. Okay. Let's start out. I we gotta do celebrities. Usually they want like three celebrities and three original characters. Okay. So the first liberty. I'm going to do is Lyle from the show escape it. Dan amora? Did you watch escape it? Dan, Amora interesting now, I've never heard of it. Okay, escape it. Dan, immoral was at star beneath they'll Toro, Paul dano, Patricia Arquette, and this discovery this man who played Patricia Arquette's husband Lyle. Yeah. But your cat in Lyle work together at a prison. She her character Tilley is having an affair with some of the inmates there and allow wants to a, you know, gets caught up in this scheme to help them escape. True story happened in upstate New York. So this is Lyle from escape, Dan, more the Showtime limited series. Higher. I was thinking we could eat at king's walk tonight. Kelly kings walk Kelly. Kings want? Why are you thinking Chinese kings walk? So that is Lyle from his give it anymore. I think Benicio del Toro. No, no, no, no. But I will do beneath sale del Toro from usual suspects. Now, his character's name was fence day. Febru-? L? That's that's but he's a Torah unusual aspects of film from nineteen Ninety-six. Okay. I saw that one good. I already did some senators. Okay. Here's an idea. I had. So obviously, they don't need me to do Trump now because Baldwin does Trump. Yeah. But do they need me to do Baldwin doing Trump? Yeah. So sometimes these sketches can get a little bit meta. And what if we kind of get inside it, and I come in as Baldwin playing Trump in one of the SNL sketches. Now, they've been in a little bit of hot water because they've done some stuff that implies that Al that Donald Trump and flat. Amir Putin are having a sexual affair so funny. Kevin. I'm not gonna say that I agree or disagree. I'm just gonna say they've gotten in trouble for that. Okay. Okay. We want to stay away from that got it. What? We still got ply. You know, what I mean like we don't want to do anything explicit. We want to do something that walks the line where if someone does post a comment on Twitter that says like SNL, can you please stop the sort of homophobic? Yeah. Stuff where your way to kind of insult Trump and Putin is that they are gay together. And then. We want it to be in a spot where someone can come and underneath. What do you even seeing you're bringing that to it? Sure. They just were shirtless coming out of a bedroom together with their arms around each other. You know what I mean? And then it's like, okay.

Netflix cracks a window

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

04:52 min | 3 years ago

Netflix cracks a window

"KCRW sponsors include net. Flicks presenting the love me when I'm dead chronicling the last years of Orson Welles life the genius behind citizen. Kane. It's wildly entertaining while full of nuance and depth directed by Morgan Neville, only on net. Flicks. November second I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Finally I mean, we sort of expected this for a while but net flicks finally finally is cracking after trying to get into the awards race in a real way for a while. Now, they really want this, and they have in a very I think serious contender in quirones Roma, which is a black and white film very much in art house film. I would save as having seen it very much a film, ironically that you would wanna see on a big screen. You cannot make a movie with Cuaron if you don't bend or an artist like Koran if you don't somewhat bend to his will. So netflix. Has said they will let this movie run exclusively in theaters some theaters for awhile, it's a concession and their couple of other films in this category. But let's focus on the big one for now couple of other films in this category. They're going to allow this with it's a concession. I'm not sure that it's a really fabulous concession. Well. It is a big deal that Netflix, which has steadfastly stuck to this party line that we are releasing movies on Netflix worldwide the same day that we're putting them in a few theaters. That's the key here. They're moving three movies from the exclusive day and date on Netflix to invaders for about two or three weeks in advance and a few theaters. And the message here is that Netflix wants to play ball with elite talent and get into that Oscar race, which they have been unable to do. And is this going to make a difference? I don't know. But it is a big concession from. Netflix to go away from what they? I have said is their model all on net flicks to giving this the window which will allow those audiences to see it in theaters. I'll tell you what I think I think that net. Flicks made such a fetish of this. And I understand they were launching something, but movies are movies, in some cases. It really does matter as I said Romans one of them, I think that they made such a stink about this that certain theaters don't want anything to do with running their movies. They still don't want that relationship. And I also think this is a small number of theaters fifty around the world, I think is the number, and I'm just guessing you've got an otter like Koran and he's not the only one that is going to seem like not enough. Now, you could say, you know, this will be was made without Netflix money and net flicks, then acquired it in in a way made it possible for the world to see it. And you could say many people do it's better to be seen on screens. You know, more people will see it this way. However, I suspect that not only will the theater is still largely shunned it, but an artist like. Warren will say, you know, this really is not enough. And next time. I'm not doing it. Well, not if he wins best picture, which is gonna pour millions of dollars into campaign to win him best picture, and they believe that by putting it in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and couple of other big cities. They will have a better shot at winning best picture for this guy. And you know, it's it's the push pull it's a huge global audience that Netflix can provide. But they don't give you that theatrical push that many filmmakers want, and to me, the most interesting thing here is Netflix is drawing a line. They're saying these three movies are worthy of the releases. But if I'm a filmmaker that has a movie at Netflix, I say to my agent, where's my theatrical release where why am I not getting what L fonds Roan or the Coen brothers or the Sandra Bullock movie? They're putting in theaters why why am I not getting that? So you're going to see I think people like Guillermo del Toro who has a movie project. Net flicks. Michael bay whose movies are gigantic transam erred. But but Michael bay is used to getting his transformers movies in four thousand riders on opening weekend in the US, and he's gonna make net looks movies. You know, you don't think Michael Bay's going to ask for the window, and yeah, I do actually. And I think that if it does win. Yes. Maybe he will be satisfied, but it may not win because net flicks.
