Nancy Pelosi Slams America's 'Lawlessness', Won’t Admit to Liberal Cause

"Nancy Pelosi says there's an attitude of lawlessness in this country. I don't know why she said to report it. Perhaps, perhaps maybe you know. Perhaps maybe Denzel Washington knows. Well, it starts in the home. You know, if the father's not in the home, the boy will try to father in the streets. Yeah, I saw it in my generation and every generation before me and everyone since. It starts in the home. You know, the streets raise you, then the judge becomes your mother and, you know, and prison becomes your home. You know, I look at these budget battles, whether it's democratic administration or a Republican administration, and more and more money being spent. Transferring out of one pocket putting in somebody else's pocket. Roughly half of our budget. Our transfers. Money coming out of somebody else's pocket being put into somebody else's pocket. The welfare state grown bigger and bigger and bigger. Since 1965 and Linda Johnson launches so called war on poverty, we spent over $20 trillion. On the war on poverty. Making it easier and easier and easier. For a woman to marry the government, in making it easier and easier and easier for a man to abandon his financial and more responsibility. In Nancy Pelosi, and the Democrats have been leading their parade for decades. And she has no idea why there is an attitude of lawlessness in our country.

Eilly was a university administrator. And she'd said that she exhibited an early affinity for storytelling early on in her life. She attended marin catholic high school and served as a hospital volunteer which inspired an interest in hospital environments. She majored in english. And film studies at dartmouth college and she graduated in nineteen ninety-one at dartmouth the black underground theatre association. She divided her time between directing and performing in student productions and also writing fiction and after college. She moved to san francisco and worked in advertising but she moved to los angeles a little bit after that to stubby screening at the university of southern california. She was ranked top of her class at usc. And she earned the gary rosenberg writing fellowship. She obtained a master of fine arts degree from the. Us's school of cinematic arts. And while at usc rimes was hired as an intern by debra martin chase who was prominent black producer she also worked at denzel washington's company monday entertainment so after she graduated rimes was actually an unemployed script writer in hollywood and to make ends meet. She worked various jobs including as an office administrator. And then a counselor at a job center during this period rhymes worked as a research director documentary. Hank aaron chasing the dream which won the nineteen ninety-five peabody award. One thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight rhymes made a short film called blossoms. Unveils which starred. Jada pinkett smith and jeffrey rate. This is actually only credit as a film director. So that's nineteen ninety eight short film blossoms unveils new line cinema purchased a feature. Script of hers It ended up not being produced at that time but she received an assignment shortly thereafter to co write the hbo movie introducing dorothy dandridge in nineteen ninety nine which earned numerous awards further star. Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on.

But you have heard of her next project in two thousand and one rhymes wrote the debut film of pop singer. Britney spears the starring zoe saldana and taryn. Manning crossroads everybody. I didn't know that she wrote that. Get out up saying. I feel like it's been really it was really panned by the next but maybe for them. Okay no sometimes. It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down. You know what they didn't turn down ask project. So here's where sean hillen comes in sean.

"With remy malik. jared leto. is this crazy guy. He does crazy things. he is a crazy guy person. there's a scene. John lee hancock wrote the screenplay for the film almost thirty years ago rather completing his work on clint eastwood's perfect world. So it's fine. It was a good movie to watch today. When i didn't have literally anything going on But falls a little flat. Didn't do what denzel movies normally do a steven. Spielberg clint eastwood. And danny devito were all attached to direct at separate times. None of them did crazy. So i watch right little things. What else i have another docu mentally about murders. It's called night stalker the night stalker which they reference in this movie with denzel. It is weird. It kind of caught me off guard there like we haven't seen this many deaths since the night stalker because it's all dealing with l. a. in l. a. okay Do you know about this. The night soccer history. Not at all. Oh boy. where's the sad. It's on netflix. Okay you gotta watch this. This is a true. Like serial killer based documentaries. Why at all why. It's just not my thing. My wife loves them. Me hate him. I'm telling you right now. This documentary was so well done by net flicks or whoever created it. I guess it's unbelievable. They've got the original detectives on the case that they're interviewing throughout the whole series right. There's only four episodes. There's just yeah. It's a mini documentary. So it's just four episodes. That are an hour long piece okay. it's very short. Maybe i'll watch and it just. It's about like soup. One young cop He was korean and he comes into the like l. a. p. and during his time like he gets into the lapd kind of works as up this way through the ranks like as soon as he becomes a detective like his very first day on the job a murder happens and they sent him to go investigate and then he immediately starts working with this older Detective that had already been on a case called the hillside strangler. It was a big case in la at the time and he solved this. I've heard i've heard of that so this detective solve that murder and then he was working with this brand new rookie detective and they work together to try to find the night stalker and it was about this young man that goes around just murdering an attacking people ruthlessly throughout l. a. He went up to san francisco. He was in multiple different places but some of the horrific things that this man did. It's very unsettling is not me off guard..

This is a movie about two cops played by of all people in washington and rami. Malek in search of someone they think is a serial killer in nineteen ninety los angeles and this guy that they focused on is played by my guest today. jared leto. Who usually gives them a run for their money in terms of letting them twist in the wind deciding whether his character is guilty is he. A serial killer is he not. I've got to tell you jared that this is one of my favorite performances of yours. It's it's like a co lassic kind of movie villain that we don't know if he's guilty of what he's accused of but we know is guilty of something definite strange character but he has humor is playful. He's all those things that make you remember character. So did you feel when you first read the script. No i said what is this. I don't wanna do this. I is was actually buy those my response. I thought you know. Maybe i should explore different territory. You know. I played a kind of than the darker side of the moon. A bit and You know. I thought maybe this wasn't the right thing to do And then after talking to john lee. Hancock and i realized that there there could be an opportunity. Here's he seemed really open. I said if we're going to do this together. I'd like to to to kind of use it as an exercise in transformation to to really try to sculpt this this this wild man albert's pharma Into something quite unlike anything. I'd done before so he seemed really game And the prospect to working with denzel washington one of my heroes and then rami malek in the mix. It was just couldn't say no. And what i love about you. Working with them is that yes albert. Your character trump really tries to drive the both of them crazy and with a kind of zen deadpan. That you have yourself you know. There's i don't want to say there's a little of you albert but there's there's some of it in. Yeah sure i've been. You know you you take parts of yourself. Other people Experiences that you've had and you kinda just build this collage you know i it with. Albert's parma was head to toe from the walk to the voice. I had different color is different knows different teeth. I had some other prosthetics different way of carrying myself and it was quite exciting to put this guy to life and to really take risk and push things right up to the edge And hopefully not crossover into absurdity But yeah he is a bit An un unwittingly unknowingly zinn. He is the voice of like maybe a soothing yoga teacher or something does. There's one i don't want to spoil any platt detests. But there's one point where they both taking you to the police station in la. It's an interrogation room and the phone rings and albert says is that for me. You know quite a quite innocent with it. It's that kind of thing that he's open to sort of any moment until he's ready to spring with something that will make denzel crazy. Sic chrissy i. there's nothing more fun than you know. antagonizing the other characters in the film and for spar he knew he uses that as a tool a likes to keep people off balance off center and humor is one of the ways that he does it and it was quite fun to show on saddened to bring all kinds of different Ideas for ad libs and improv and John lee hancock was amazing. Because you know he was the writer as well but incredibly generous with the opportunity to improvise ad-lib and he really just let me go to town. Would you haven't worked with denzel rami before right. No no no. I had an an. I didn't know them Either and i mean what was kind of fun as well as that didn't do any rehearsal like for the interrogation senior talking about that was the first scene with all three of us and the first big seen it was quite intense and intimidating Exciting there was a lot of pressure and it was explosive on sad. It was it was there. Were fireworks going off. It was really exciting to get in the ring with those guys. Everyone came prepared. I think we all knew there was an opportunity there and we all took advantage of it. Well you know all you have oscars so now. Nobody can ask you to do anything. You don't wanna do right. You just hold that thing up. You can take it with you that day. You want you could certainly a casa damage with it It is a you know. Denzel washington said the other day.

The Little Things Movie Review

"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.

Desi may play by taylor page and her nephew sylvester played by deuce on brown. I want to just dive right in joel. You said you were very excited to talk about this coming what you thought. Oh my gosh linda. I loved it like it's hard to put into words how much i enjoyed it. And all of the reasons but chadwick boseman this be his final performance. Jeff estates think recently denzel washington in an interview said that like he didn't lose anything we lost him this idea that he gave everything he had to give while he was here. This for me is probably his magnum opus. His great work his his final statement. To wasn't he left us a lot of really great. If you look at all the roles he's chose in the last like three to four years. All of them are about conclusions and about wrapping things up. This one is so much more about like the hurt and pain. You have to just go through as a black person just to exist in this country and it's profound and gorgeous and the way we'll shoots this. I struggle a lot with theater to film translations. Because it's like theater it's so meant to be experienced in person and sometimes dial it doesn't quite work and particularly when they're monologue like you have a hard time like this doesn't feel real because it's not it's theater if you don't have to live in same kind of rules that film often does but when we'll takes his camera at a high angle as chadwick boseman is giving this like very revealing monologue. You're able to stay in it because you're sort of. It feels almost more in his head. It's more conversations having with and it captures. I think what is so hard to translate between these two mediums. And i love it and then on top of all that colman. Domingo like if you're making a movie just put colman domingo you cast anyone else in any other will ever a silent killer in everything that he does. And it's so profound. I love his in bad movies. I love his work in great. I love coleman doing and here he just continues that check and then they leave is crowns. It all off by just being great and showing up and her vocal performance away. She drinks coke. Makes you wanna die. It's a seven. I love performances. I like live live for like actors being able to nestle into character and create something that is so alive and vivid. No one in the cast isn't doing that. It's nearly a perfect soga. Yeah stephen thompson. What did you think. I love this movie. Too i think the central performances by chadwick boseman and by viola davis are so beautifully done. I do think there are a lot of parallels to be drawn between this film and fences which one viola davis and oscar that has also adapted from an august wilson. Play and both films are really so centered on the performances. They are really showcases for actors more than there necessarily like show willie directed big epochs. There are focused on the performances. I think that theatre film translation does trip them both up a little bit. Where they're so focused on the performances. They don't flow as naturally as they might. This there are points in this film. That felt a little bit stagey to me. But at the same time those performances are glorious. As joel said that chadwick boseman performance is is titanic. I mean it is a oscar clip e speech -i big performance. I think we cannot underestimate. How great this viola davis performance is. It is a quieter performance. She's doing so much work with just like kind of heavy eyelid. Look at a character will just is just searing. She is fantastic film and like joel said colman. Domingo is great. Glenn is great as toledo. I loved this film and as you would expect it just weaves music in beautifully. Yeah all right. I asia. Let's go to you next to you.

"But some people swear by that movie it's off. I'm going to at least give it another shot. I will not within but yes, we should have fences on the other hand, you know, it's a directorial mid-sized truck, but it's his most prominent filmon and if we are comparing him to Clooney I'd say it's it's significantly better than anything Clooney's directed. It's and his performance in it a plus. Yeah, I'm really surprised for me. Yeah, I feel like The Equalizer is like I think it works very well. But I think I like maybe the reason Denzel was like fine to go in and get a key price or two is cuz it's a pretty easy movie for him. I feel like Denzel is able to kind of he does what he does pretty easily in this. I feel even Tony Scott thousand man and Man on Fire or whatever is a probably a much more demanding shoot in terms of just it's length and it's cost and it's variables kind of like Dynamics and stuff off. The action sequences in The Equalizer are pretty clipped and terse. I don't even know how much like really major stunt work goes into it's not like, you know, we compared to John Wick but like all the fight sequences are nothing like John Wick in terms of they're kind of like composition complexity and you know, Keanu Reeves is pretty much gone full-on in as like a participation. And stoned person within these films to you know, kind of like give life these very intricate pieces of work The Equalizer doesn't have that. It's very over-the-top and the kind of like, you know, the cameras are swings around not very like, you know short sharp bursts of movement and I just wondered like maybe Denzel's just kind of like enjoying himself a little bit like his he he kind of brings he brings just a temporary calm energy to us. Like he doesn't like there's no I mean he doesn't there's no point in all either of the equalizer films where he loses his temper or test a shout, you know, know, I'm not really he just has to stand there and be Denzel Washington honestly. So yeah, it feels like maybe just kind of like a film that just kind of registers on a very relaxed Temple. I don't know maybe later on the overall history of The Equalizer will come out and it'll be like it would show I have no idea. I'm just making this up but that's certainly the feel if it was a shitshow Denzel Washington wage. Look like it was a very easy shitshow. So, you know, and that's that would be another Mark in his favor. Yeah for sure. Hey Jack. All right, I found another Antoine Fuqua thing. You've really seen he directed The Three Doors Down Citizen Soldier Army propaganda film that aired before like every movie ever for five years. Yeah, and here's me. I know I don't think I've ever seen your blessings man. How have you not seen that cuz I don't go to multiplexes other Three Doors Down and rice cakes. Yes, you know like Mister fancy-pants walking.

"Stuff. I don't know how long I would would you guys think did it did it seem to fit as something different because I mean I guess could have done something like Book of Eli or something like that, but nobody really yeah. No. Thanks. No, thanks off. Better choice. Yeah, I'll take a pass on that much better choice. This is go ahead Myers like my reaction to it is again, it is an interesting conclusion because it does chart down that sort of Denzel all defining sort of the trajectory of action Cinema in the this era because this is well into your sort of franchise era and get a better movie than something like taken but it is very adjacent to that like it's better almost because solely because of Denzel really and it is still in that bulb. It's a sort of movie you see Liam Neeson and Bruce Willis is in the world doing a lot of these days and I I it's not the sort of movie. I'm capable of hating but I kind of hate that it's what he's asked to do with this point in his career, but you know, they're fundamentally very conservative films. I mean, this is absolutely like a conservative film just like take and it's it's, you know dead. And Men protecting women men righting wrongs, you know taking on the weight of the world. Yeah, you know, it's stupid action movie bullshit. Like it's not it's not rewriting any wrong. See your by any means nature of the Beast. I think most good action movies are conservative by nature and I think in there better for it not saying that the politics have to necessarily be good. But yeah, this is interesting cuz it's like Denzel he's always the you know, he's always the Superman in the room, but this is like his first superhero franchise and adjusting that of all this his entire career. This is the first movie of his to actually get a sequel and he has yet, but it's it has a lot of traits of like the superhero movie like The Years following time down thing..

"Trim genre films no swear to lean in and like Jake mentioned the like Joy Division New Dawn Fades needle drop at the end the whole end sequence in the Home Depot has like some I don't even know what the song is, but it's like the lyrics are just a guy going like I'm gonna die alone, but I'm gonna get Vengeance as like, how does this song evening? This is a stupidest thing and but like the film really leaves in our bad guy is like this very Suave Russian gangster who is revealed at one point of like full body tattooing and when it's revealed to the camera, like just this weird thing where it like wage goes over top of him and then goes upside down and like settle a staring at him head-on, but like upside down for no reason I can discern stylistically doesn't make any particular game. Ends, but it's just such a bizarre choice and but yeah, it's really it's really enjoy this film and it kind of has a fee Matic element to us and which I was surprised watching the sequel today actually kind of on you know, there's a continuity of that thematic element which Steve you were talking about how he basically, you know, he like he fixes up as his local Society. He like he wrongs a couple of Rights here or there like small crimes big crimes then eventually literally topples an entire Russian mob and international crime syndicates and what like there's this idea I guess of home, you know all all crime no matter how minor being an affront to humanity and he is The Equalizer I guess if we it's a shame no one at any point goes on like you but equalised, you know, when there's nothing, you know, maybe they should try to work that in just for often with stupidity. But you know kind of this idea that he's he's someone who is able to enact some kind of he's like a balance off. A counter ways to Humanity's worst impulses and he is a sort of he's OCD. I guess it's kind of an inference that he's a little different than his discipline seems, you know, mentally, you know kind of like more than just a kind of internal discipline of being an ex-military guy with a shadowy past like everyone in these films that like, you know, he's kind of like he sets his watch for things, you know to see how long it will take him to do something he plans he plots. There's like these visual Maps before action sequences of what he plans to do before and there's like this suggestion maybe that he's like OCD he's he has it's like just incredible internal metronome that carries and through so he's kind of separated away from Humanity's impulses wage, but really all of that just really comes down to the fact that he just kicks ass and it's like the most awful. I hate the whole like, you know delicate petal wage. Girl who's sold into the sex trade and some guy who was a kind of a monopoly over violence is able to free her through just sheer violence, you know, these kind of like it's a really awful thing but in every one of these movies, but you know, it kind of it works really well at this movie because it's impossible to take this film seriously, like I would take it at face value and and you suck at this point. I kind of have to hand it to Fuqua as a guy who kind of harnesses Denzel's ability to be very reserved and kind of internal as an actor. There's like this interior Reserve that Denzel has which is I think one of the reasons why when he smiles and when he reveals any kind of.

"How about you? This is the greatest movie ever made. I I loved it. I thought it was excellent as well and Thursday. It's it's Nalan is such a great Counterpoint to this because I think the the career he has where people just lot all these you know, praise. Oh my God, it's just makes these brilliant Sci-Fi movies and these worlds but like in many ways Toni Scott beat him to the punch with this movie. This is like all the things Nolan tries and fails to do Tony Scott succeeds here and he's guided tremendously by a very grounded in a very charismatic Denzel the there's a there's a sequence that where they have to try to track down where maybe the terrorists may be hiding and it's a it's a car chase but Denzel grabs this VR helmet, so he's watching the game. Wormhole footage from four days in the past as he's chasing an invisible car on the freeway to get to the spot and it's like one of the craziest things I've ever seen a Hollywood Thursday we do but it just it works so well in the context of film. Yeah, it's it's great and like the kind of the the cop out that Nolan will have like, oh the the dancer is that love is the most powerful Dimension. That's that's bullshit. But here love is the most powerful Dimension and I yeah, this isn't I was just surprised I think I didn't get stale like a great movie. Sorry. Go ahead check you say, you know, just this came up first came out in 06 and it's like so we got Deja Vu and for Nolan we had the prestige and the prestige is very much the read off for Christopher Nolan's films. It's the film about how Christopher Nolan conceive of his script writing about how we commit to a a trick and a worldview off. Sacrifices we make to kind of kind of cloister it away to protect us to make it magical and to surprise our audiences and it's a very self serious film. I haven't seen it in years down. I remember quite enjoying it at the time but it's also like yeah like in Christopher know like the prestige. It's a movie with rod up its ass like a hundred percent. Like it's a very stiff formal formal and rigorous film intellectually rigorous draw a film and Deja Vu is not bad at all. Asian food was kind of messy and Scrappy and kind of a little bit a little over the place at some points and like a jake mentioned that chase sequence. I think that's a really interesting sequence cuz that that's one of the points in the film that also kind of dabbles in state surveillance are strong action morally because Denzel Washington endanger the ship to other people driving like a lunatic on the roads to possibly save people. It's four days ago or whatever and you know, but this is a question. There's the question of what actions are permitted or permissible based on your knowledge knowledge that mayor Mayer nod be real to you know, basically, you know, your question of invasion, you know of privacy or endangerment of people versus a greater good. I think that chase offering of an interesting Balancing Act of that. It doesn't really give an answer. It's it's kind of, you know enclosed within the film also feel in that scene. You can also feel like Tony Scott long as the filmmaker coming through like like trying to show you the experience of what it's like to make a movie about something that you're trying like, you know, you're familiar with boxing and you're just sort of like shooting in the dark as you know, the technology sort of goes out and he can't see what he's doing and he just has to like listen to other people and kind of trust his instincts and Thursday..

"Denzel's career is just off Scott's camera picking on him looking at a screen, I guess in that way. It's you know analogous to some Heavy Hitters like, uh passion of Joan Arc or Thursday. Maybe and other or even are looking at a screen like Syria, right? And it's just it's it's in just sort of like figuring out things and just emoting looking at it and it it's really beautiful and Powerful stuff. Yeah. This is a a big surprise to me my roast did this one click with you time around cuz I know you're probably in the same boat as me when you saw this and mm. Yeah, I don't even remember seeing it. I remember we rented it cuz looked ridiculous. And yeah thought it would be a good laugh delivers on that. Were you like did I have seen this before when you start home? I I think this one works in a way that magnifier does not I think it's particularly interesting to me in that it it really is sort of the tail end of Will Smith Bruckheimer era of action Cinema mainstream Cinema and It is also at the tail-end. Thereby of of this sort of star-driven thing. You're right on the cusp of your Iron Man and that is a sea change in the industry and bought a movie really has an auto or voice and it shows sort of the power of old school movie star and that is kind of missing today. But this is kind of a hair's breadth away from being high-concept boring Christopher Nolan type movie and it's entirely rescued from that by the presence of Denzel Washington and this he is magnetic in a way that you seldom see in those types of high-concept films. And this one's the humanity to this that you often find and for that reason I do think it's pretty special. I do think that Scott found almost an ideal vehicle for his Newfound sense of style in this month. Film as well because he can he can separate it largely from The Narrative. He it's the hyperactive editing is almost contained within this Wormhole if you will, know, and he can go home as batshit as he wants with that. It can be as disorienting as humanly possible because it's meant to be it makes their incense and it's employed quite well here. I think this is a very excellent film honestly off..

Yeah, I guess you find jobs is I talked a little bit when we were when we were discussing man and fire about how stylistically I felt there was some distance between what Tony Scott was doing and what the rest of the movie was doing. But Deja Vu everything kind of clicks, like all of his stylistic flourishes and the fact that this is so over-the-top. It just works with the style of filmmaking which is just a month and wacky is ban on fire and it's little things like when they show the ferry explosion Tony Scott in classic Tony Scott fashion has to show it from every single angle imaginable..

I was not expecting in ways. I wasn't expecting and this is definitely slept on this movie is worth chasing down. I think out of all the ones were talking about. Yeah also in typical Tony Scott fashion, he made the the two best movies that were going to talk about today, but yes, absolutely. Device that man as a transitional point for about Denzel though, like men and fire was sort of like the only one of this lot of that is like the big Denzel the big Baddie kind of got like the very forceful.

"Like the bomb sequence the C4 sequence you put that in any other film, I would probably hate it like it seems like it would be something that would come from Suicide Squad where they shove C4 up some guy's ass and suck and blow it up. But because it's Denzel doing it. It's like why isn't every movie with Denzel have this scene in the movie? And yeah, he's he sells it. So well violence feels better with Denzel. Go ahead Sean. That's right. We we were suggesting through the week just via VIA chat and it was mentioned something about like off some of these movies not working with with somebody or not working with somebody who's not Denzel and and this is one that is that for me. Which yeah, I just can't imagine it being with like a Clooney or whoever or like, I don't know. Uh, I mean, I was thinking of Will Smith because of Enemy the State coming off that but like, I don't think that that would be good. He doesn't have the darkness home. That tends eldest but but I find the the Dakota Fanning thing. Like I find that there's a she's asking him questions, you know, like the Carfax and stuff and and asking for help on homework and stuff then he's teaching her about like swimming and stuff. I find there to be a a very obvious and important. I guess. I had your Monica relationship there that just works for me but my rose we haven't heard from you. Yeah, I kind of agree with everyone. I think that off this is this is a genre going on a very simple and once elevated by a performance and then brought right back down by some of the choices made it home. I feel like Yeah, everything and everyone's saying about Dakota Fanning and Denzel is correct and even even walking like I think this is a great cast all around and I think Scott got a lot off his actors in This film and yeah, I I also think it's not very good because I just don't understand a lot of what God is doing here and I couldn't help but think of you know, we're just coming off the Supermoto stuff and I couldn't help but think of something like bullet ballet. It uses a lot of similar technique in in that it even in a similar sort of industrial music in this bizarre sort of interludes of hyper editing and Industrial sound and in that movie it serves a purpose and it feels like could hear if it were employed correctly like this sort of degeneration in Denzel, but it's almost uniform throughout the film. There's no real escalation of that style Choice it is dead..

"Moves me. And yeah, it's it's it's powerful stuff. I think they have like sort of this tension at the beginning and sort of cut through that and it becomes very endearing. Yeah. It's it's odd as an action film just because like you said Denzel's performance is great and took any Scott especially during this. He's really exceptionally good for a guy that makes predominantly action films. He's exceptionally good at shooting dialogue and dead. Just the way that he edits back and forth conversations to just catch little reactions and and facial movements. And I mean it's something Denzel excels. And so I think it's a great pairing in that way Dakota Fanning's excellent and the first forty-five minutes and this is the crazy thing. It's basically just this relationship building between Denzel and Dakota Fanning age and that was my favorite part of the film and then once it switches into like Revenge action, it just it sort of fell apart for me because it is stylistically Extreme. It's like hyper saturated color all kinds of editing and like shutter affects what I say all kinds of editing is like a real fucking idiot a lot of Quick Cuts quick cutting. I mean just boom boom. Boom one right after the other and it's a little bit disorienting and it doesn't it feels like There's some dissonance between what's going on in the movie and what Tony Scott is doing as he's kind of throwing shade at the wall essentially and sometimes it works. I think works stylistically in like the club scene like you mentioned but there's other times are just like, oh, here's the random shudder effects. Like why why it doesn't nothing connects for me. And that seems to get it amps up this this tightly stylistic flourishes. They am woke up as the movie continues and then it just it's just unravels totally unravels for me. But yeah, I mean a for effort because Ho Lee fuk to think that this was like a big hit theatrical release 2004 is kind of mind-blowing to me. Yeah, I would like I'd say I didn't like the film I would agree. think the first 50 minutes are the best part because frankly, I think it's the only part where you can really see a perform performance is occurring and after a really jittery opening frankly really racist account of Mexico City is the place dog. Knapp things happen and it just good like Mexico City. It's kidnapping Central. That's it. Like that's the only thing we learn about Mexican culture from that opening sequence and it comes in Heaven's hiring bodyguards and there's a little bit of talk about I think Marc Anthony's character who is Dakota Fanning's father has legacies a car manufacturer something. He's betting on some kind of a corporate deal. Maybe you know, the I thought maybe you could lend some kind of a concept of what creates these economic tensions that would be kidnapping lucrative film doesn't really get anywhere with that..

"I mean it's it's yeah, it's on par with something like maybe a little Tamp down from that but it's synthetic and this is about a moving train as well. This this all comes from his collaborations with Paul Cameron who he did cinematography Page Avenue and Man on Fire. He also worked on collateral Gone in 60 seconds. So this is a guy that kind of I don't know he seems like he was a big influence. This whole period of big Studio action films. It's it's hard to to throw a rock and not hit one of his movies from this. This whole like especially like mm to say 2008 is off. His fingerprints are all over action Cinema. Now, the question is does that should jive with you and for me? It's not so much here, but a little bit more in in some of them.

Well first I'll say this is the this is the only table I'll find myself that where people have to be so that's so the unmanned on fire represent with that but and I recently just watched Spy game Tony Scott's bike game, which I've maybe it takes months to get on that way, but I just found it kind of dull like even with to like huge actors just not really with his style but it starts to go in this style, but it's still dead. It's it's not what this is. This is like Jackson Pollock type of stuff that Johnny Scott is doing here just like really, you know mashing the keyboard dog. the color correction and matching it really bleaching stuff and and just throwing like she said the walls and and uh, but What I like about it a lot is is Denzel's performance and how Tony Scott like comes to the table to make this thing that is more experimental than he's ever done this sort of this new Leaf.

"I actually wanted to like sit down pay attention to do, you know, like 10:00 or whatever and I was just like flipping out like through Prime to see something that I would watch like fifteen minutes of and then like just be tired and I was like, whoa out of time. Okay. There you go. I've never seen them and I put it off and I just like to watch the whole perfect. Yeah. Just I mean, it's not that it's great but it has that yet. But it's it's it's definitely like, I mean, don't want like condemn it. I think it's it's it's just enjoyable. It's slick and I like this very much is it's the Denzel Washington show without him centering it it I don't think the twists and subversions would carry a lot of weight, but they woke. Never able to invest in him as a leading character and and he's really good at selling in like I say kind of a guy who's good-hearted or you know, his heart's in the right place, but he bends rules and I guess it's you know, kind of vary it will see some variation that I guess through all the films we discussed become battle. I mean Training Day really made his name as the guy who bends the rules cuz he's actually back and that kind of like made he bends the rules and yeah, but here he's doing it but it's kind of like he's a sympathetic character and go even I mean without going to spoil it so much. I'm not mad at the love angle in this film Falls in on itself like he's given nothing so it's a rough trip. Yeah, totally and I agree with you too. It's like the most enjoyable kind of like early 2000s be movie and it really feels like something like like a tier two streaming movie. So like if you flipped on one of the free ones like to be your crackle and you're like, oh gee what's out here. Like I have no idea. What the fuck this is. That's exactly exactly what this is absolutely feels like a movie. You should find like that Sora like it's ten minutes in like if I maybe should watch it again, but like start 15 minutes in and just see what see how it rolls interests me in the way that it's just branches from multiple sort of nineties genres, like it's obviously it was a lot to The Fugitive but there is also this sort of erotic Thriller bent especially early off the First Act and it's just amusing cuz it it's like the old fully clothed steamy sex scenes over and over again and it's like what are we a lot of mass of goofy? Yeah we go back. Or the sex and then mm. It's almost sexless erratic. There's a weird throw listen, bro..

"Fuck is Denzel the only good cop in the world not in Training Day sidekick John Choi. Yeah. I got John Billingsley is fucking great in this I guess Jake what shows what the fuck is out of time because I had never even thought about this movie before we watched for the podcast. Yeah, never seen it before this week. But at a time strike to buy a Carl Franklin who did Devil in a blue dress with Denzel previously, which is a pretty good movie package is a cop. He's a chief of police in the Florida Keys and he gets embroiled in this life insurance scheme between a woman he's sleeping with who wants to leave her abusive husband played by Dean Cain and when their house burns down and they apparently turned up dead. He's caught in the middle of it and basically tries to outsmart the feds and the local police investigating and it's a it's a throwback to pulpy sun-drenched Thrillers. And it's it's pretty decent time. I say, yeah. This one was there loads of fun. It's just like a wage pulpy almost like wash Thriller in a way, but at the same time it's it's in this like sun-drenched like outside of Miami swamp Place dead. So the location is really interesting and one of the things I I enjoyed the most about it is a common theme in the Denzel films that we watch and I think there's a lot of them that he's done is when Denzel is playing like a cop or a badass or an action hero. He has this natural just confidence and Charisma about him where he's always sort of birth control of shit. You know, you always feel like okay Denzel's got a handle on things and out of time is really good at kind of teasing out his his paranoia and his anxiety and it's super fun to watch him just deal with an increasingly complex situation where everything is closing in on him. Yeah, that there's like a sort of the the scene that sticks out in my mind. The most is is when he's he's what does he fiddling around with like a fax machine in in his phone? He's all drink phone records that like middle half hour is the best part of this movie. He's altering fax machines. He's deleting like the voicemail function on his phone. He's fooling people into calling other people. So like didn't Denzel we've said he's a commanding. He's a great actor of great stature. And yeah, this film is kind of like seeing what happens when he's got his back against the wall and he's trying to impress that control back into his life. So it's kind of a very clever subversion on his Persona as an actor and it works really well this stuff in the second act is just is great. Oh absolutely by oh so you get a kick out of this one. Have you even ever heard of this before? I don't know how this one like fell under my radar for so long. It's kind of weird though Fallen under most people's radar was not a it was not a box office smash will say but yeah, I did enjoy this quite a bit. I knew nothing about it going in like I even in the First Act I'm like, I didn't really realize it was like a frame-up sort of movie Iraq. Where the hell is he? Thought it was nick of time with Johnny Depp. I was like man. What are we got like a some sort of cancer drama on our hands here why we pick this? Yeah, it certainly gets going. It's it's a very enjoyable movie..

"Denzel did that during the theatrical experience but and he is in a in a Netflix movie to the Tom Hanks was but yeah, there there really aren't very many comes to I don't know if other people have ideas about that Clooney Clooney comes to mind for me. Yeah, that that's my directions to yeah, those are just they're just like the two most charismatic motherfukers on Earth basically. So yeah. Yeah, you could command the shit out of a room and I was actually Denzel was supposed to or was was first pitched Michael Clayton and turned it down because he was afraid of first time to direct her he was apprehensive. That's one of the rules one of like the two roles. He regrets I'm taking I mean, I'm glad he didn't take it cuz Clooney is so good in that. Yeah, Clooney's Amazing by Quick Lane is awesome. Yeah, it's I don't know. It's it's just so interesting like watching his career are too because you know in the nineties he was in a lot of big hit films a lot of critically acclaimed films and then just kind of watching him from their sort of pick and choose what he does. And you know, he's got his Oscar from was it like mm mm 144 training day and I think he was nominated for best actor the year before I thought lost to Al Pacino which was either for Scent of a Woman or Jack and Jill. I can't remember which one yeah. Yeah, he's been nominated and he wanted he wanted support or gory back in the eighties with his with my sister. But yeah, and we're kind of talked about this before we start recording but Yeah, the 90s really seemed like the. Where he blossomed into like a superstar? Like he he was was already known as like a really good actor and in the early nineties, there's still something that isn't very popular. But I think the stuff that really pushed him to that higher Echelon was was the prestige stuff like I can breathe and Crimson Tide and courage Under Fire and the The Siege. I don't know if people actually saw the seats besides me and my best friend and his mom, but but yeah, it seems like that sort of got him to that that really like respectable actor and Philadelphia obviously. that level and then he started turning into like this more and more of an action star but but never taking any sequels or anything like that always taking this lead role and usually having a issue with some level of.

"I think the distinction is the Lazy River Nature of things the usually one wraps on a board difficult and dangerous. Yeah, there's like there's there's an like you have to intervene in your situation and rafting that's like a, yang. Again, I wish this was explained to me in Greater detail before I drank like 17 fucking beers and took an edible because holyshit let's say that add edible came out as a good idea at the end wage. Yeah, it's but it was so it started off and it was just like well, yeah, I mean basically it was just like pretty chill and it's like, okay, this is fine and then all of a sudden there's some Rapids you're like, oh this can be fun. It's not as I mean, it was fun, but it was fucking scary. It was stopped what I expected and then I'm we got done and I didn't have any phone reception up there, but we got back and I Googled like Wisconsin Wolf River deaths and then there is just a bunch of news articles about how people get drunk and go on the river and and die because they don't know what they're doing and like wow that's defeating the office Hey, Kevin Bacon did Kevin Bacon any point show up and, interior raft? Go to fight, but now that would have been made it more interesting at one point. I got hit by something and I went flying like face-first that I was just like spinning underneath the water like going down the wrong. I was like, oh this is how it ends but somehow I popped up so wear your lifejacket, even if the toothless idiots tell you it's not a big deal. I would also recommend a helmet rock song 17 less beers 17 less beers. Maybe just seven. It seems like a good clip to keep but fuck man. I am I'm fucking dead. Anyways, my personal stupidity aside Sean. This this podcast was kind of was your brainchild. Actually you wanted to dive into some Denzel Washington which was all for because I feel like Denzel's a guy that everybody likes and respects like yeah deadcell. That's cool. Dude makes good movies, but going through some of his movies dog. I didn't realize just how much of a force he is. And I'm struggling to think of an actor that can just take any movie that he's in regardless of quality and not enhanced it but literally like lift the entire thing on his fucking shoulders and carry it. Yeah. Well, first of all, I want to say I think it was technically Jack's idea page. Uh, I don't respect him. I won't I acknowledge his ideas and that's understandable. But but yeah, I've been trying to think of. Well, first of all our second of all, I guess already said first of all, I agree like that. It's sort of taken for granted that Denzel it's good. Like everybody knows that nobody's going to refuse to say like, yeah, he's not a good actor. But yeah, you rarely see because of that and because he's been I guess so good for so long like he really see a sort of like insightful. Discussion are writing about like what makes him so good and yeah, I've been watching a lot of them. I think this is this I've watched nearly twenty of them this year of his movies and I kind of just like put it together at a certain point like why I like him or why I think he's so effective, but we can get into that later..

"I also have you seen the staff that they keep showing up Zion has the most deals as Duke fresh. And since what Duke freshman, they keep asking him. This have you have you seen this? I've seen it happened. Three times happened on get up happened on what else did it happen on college game day than happened? Just wanna sportscenter segment, but they ask him that question. And the answer is obviously Jay will. And he had thirty seven stills at this point the seasons. INS thirty one. We we all know that. So I'm just wondering how many times we're going to get these trivia questions that the obvious answer is Jay Williams is Jay Williams writing these himself if so then that impresses me because he's going to have to look up his own stats to figure this out then compare with John and then get it in the program, and that to me is dedication. That's skip Bayless dedication to the brand. So I'm hoping that that happens again hoping that trivia question because again, the answer is thirty seven steals Jason Williams or the artist formerly known as Jason Williams for anyone that wants to know that. Yeah, I'm excited for the game as we all should be. It's going to be the best game of the year. Go earliest, it feels like it should be going in number one number one doesn't get any better than Virginia fans are gonna be pissed at a state because we just talked mostly about Duke. But we know the deal Virginia's gonna win. We're talking about Duke because dukes about the die. You're about to kill Duke. And the next week. We're gonna talk about how Virginia be Duke. Yeah. Yeah. That's the plan. New king slayers case layers. We talk about Josh for a little bit. Because this is fascinated me. I said this up for you. Because this is all you, this is big Tim basketball. I don't I you know, I did my toes into the big ten every once in a while just to kinda see what's going on what's going over link house produing. Did they give more money or they're gonna get? You know, more football sodas, whatever it may be. But Michigan State Tom Izzo. You have created this. You have written the story before so much that it got all the way to the top two Tom Izzo about manufactured controversy, but Josh Lankford is dealing with the nagging injury. Right. And and it looks and feels like one of those moments Mark Titus like you've pointed out many times that he he's he's telling for to go down. So that he can build them back up. Exactly. So here's let me let me paint a picture for and we've seen this before I've explained the theory. Most people listen to pod most the friend of the program. Remember, there might be some new comers that I'll explain it to the Denzel Valentine year Denzel Valentine is twenty fifteen twenty sixteen season. Michigan state. I believe I don't think they got all the way up to number one in the country at the time. But they were they were up there. It was very it was buddy healed versus Denzel Valentine for national player of the year. Michigan state was so much better than anyone thought. They would be they they were taking the country by storm. It was incredible Denzel Valentine looked like a mini LeBron out there. He was doing everything Tate. He's he's assisting. He scoring. He's rebounding. He's doing the next dream on Valentine's stuff the question. Yeah. Yep. It was a credible. Then suddenly out of nowhere Denzel Valentine needs a niece, go, right? And we don't really know what that means. We didn't have the technology back then to understand what what is a Neo. This was again way back in the stone ages twenty sixteen we know just say Nico, and then the general public. I don't know what that is. And a no one questions everyone accepts it must be this new scientific thing they go in. They he gets D surgery. He gets his knees. Cut open. He sits out for like two weeks in those two weeks. Michigan state struggling a little bit. Not the same team. Little worry. We're trying to figure out the new rules new roles on the team. Whatever Denzel Valentine comes back like his first game back..
