The Rock Weighs in on Vin Diesel's 'Fast & Furious' Feud Comments

"And the furious. And the feud between dwayne the rock johnson and vin diesel which I guess it enters a new chapter bent house it. Yeah so Chris and i think in a previous episode talked about some recent comments that vin diesel made around the time that if nine came out where menzies profiled in men's health magazine and he talked a little bit about how the beef behind the scenes between him and dwayne johnson was actually like a manipulation on the part of master-strategist vin diesel. Where he was talking about how he would do anything that he'd have to do in order to get performances From people that he worked with on projects that he was producing. So he's sort of like insinuated that all of the the tough love that he was giving was was in order to like coax out the performance that he wanted from johnson. Which at the time. Chris and i were just talking about how i mean. Just absurd on its face. That claim is an interest. How really ridiculous. And like you don't believe the vin diesel is a master chessmen. Were playing three moves ahead. Look i actually appreciate the way that vin diesel has leaned into an and been like very publicly publican open about the way that he loves fantasy storytelling in dungeons dungeons and dragons. And how he looks at the fast and furious franchise as like an extended the campaign basically. I actually think all of that kind of the the ridiculous thought that he puts into all of that stuff. I think is actually is paying off in has paid off very well in those movies but to claim basically to claim ownership over somebody else's performance in the way that he did especially when there's so much simmering tension. There is just a step too far and apparently doing johnson thought so as well. So in a a new profile of dwayne johnson. And emily blunt. That just went up in the hollywood reporter today. They asked dwayne johnson what he thought about those comments from he said. I laughed and i laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And i'll leave it at that. And that i've wished them

Disney Introduces Revamped Jungle Cruise Ride, Without Racist Imagery

"A few days before Disneyland July 17th 1955 opening celebration. TV viewers. Glimpse the park and its attractions. A special episode of the weekly Disneyland TV show on ABC. The Wonderful World, which was often times essentially an infomercial for the park about the pre opening report from Disneyland, a fascinating historical record that today lives on the company's Disney plus Screaming service, and it included a look at the mechanical hippos and crocodiles of the parks. Jungle cruise ride, as well as the plaster molding of a black male model whose quote imposing physique was used to People our jungle cruise with like life natives as white men in formal attire looked on. Yeah. Today. We cringe. At this scene for a ride that went on to develop a reputation for racist depictions of indigenous people as tourist attractions, Attackers or cannibals. Tribal caricatures crafted through Colonial lens. It's a distinction that Disney could no longer afford. So Ahead of the July 30th release of Jungle Cruise movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. The ride reopened on Friday. Day shy of the parks. 66 anniversary with updates that removed in Disney's words Negative depictions of native people.

"Seemed like will smith could if he wanted to sort of revitalizes career in takes the next level. He just never really did that. Kind of played it safe the whole way through. And then i feel like wilson wilson is not nearly as big of a star and or cultural figure now as he was fifteen years ago. An didn't have to be that way like he made some more interesting choices long way again. It's real easy for me to say like sitting here. Whatever backseat driving on his career or whatever but yeah anyway so so yes read. One is join johnson. Said imagine hobbs miracle on thirty fourth street which ever whenever the hell abbey's of no idea what that means. You mean hobson shaw or does he just his character. I think he means the character. Which like you know that character is fine. He has a nice relationship with his daughter. So maybe there's like some sort of touching element here. I just have to say before we move off this that This idea of like a christmas cinematic universe sounds ridiculous on the face of it. But what is that. Movie called a rise of the guardians. Which i think in twenty twelve at one of the co directors of spiderman into the spider verse. Directed is actually that but animated and it's very good and i feel like Enough people have seen that movie. So if you are intrigued by this concept but maybe A little hesitant as we are about the whole like business branding aspect of it being like so transparently included in this early stage. Maybe go seek out rise of the guardians. because it's it's definitely worth your time all right so ultimately onto our old pal. Diesel is up to vin diesel. Likes to talk a lot. Chris and what is he saying now. Oh boy vin diesel. I love in diesel. He's another one. I'm just like boy. I like vin diesel. I don't think he's a very good actor. But then these a love talking about movies he wants to make and he loves talking about sequels he will eventually make. I don't know if you remember this band. But last year he was like talking about a sequel to the last witch hunter and absolutely no one wants. No one is like all with lincoln. The story we can see and talk. And it's like there's there is no way anyone wants that except vin diesel but anyway Vin diesel He has the riddick series. There's there's pitch bat black. There's the chronicles of riddick. And there's just it's ridic- and believe it or not even though there are three of these movies none of them are are really financially successful. When i was reading this story Doing my research. I learned that the most successful film in the trilogy is the chronicles of riddick and that is still considered a box. Office bomb And yet vin diesel is out there saying They're gonna make riddick for. He said there's even a script already for it and he even says. i believe. Were shooting that in australia in other words. He's saying like this has the green light. They're going to shoot australia but again you need to take the things. Vin diesel says with a with a grain of salt or maybe a heaping own. Because i think these are things. That like i i. I don't wanna call vin diesel insane. But i think he's like lives in his own world where he's just like. Yeah that'll happen. And he's like yeah that's happening and no one and you know he's so successful. At noah wants to be like mr diesel. That's not happening. So he he just walks around. Just assuming this stuff is going to happen and His handlers are hoping he'll forget about it and talking like hopefully move on to find me guilty to or something like that okay. So have you seen the riddick movies chris. The first one and that's it. I saw the first two. And they're fun. The the pitch black is fun. And i don't really like crowds riddick appreciate that. It's like a big. We're basically trying to be like david lynch's do to go from pitch black which is like a pretty straightforward monster movie. And then be like. Let's make this big weird sci fi epic. I appreciate swings like that. Don't work but i have not seen the third one okay. Yeah and. I'm curious about this. Because i i really wonder if this is going to be one of those things he just ends up sort of like speaking into existence and like if a studio is just like well. I mean on paper. This guys You know film. Career is like billions and billions of dollars in the on the plus side because of the fast and furious movies. So i guess he's earned. Whatever the mid budget we're going to give him for another riddick movie just to sort of keep him happy or something. So yeah we'll have to see. I wonder if there are any like big rec heads out there. Who are listening to this. I would love you guys Listening love this franchise if you could write as an email and let us know what you would want to see happen riddick. Foreign just curious like what what the story there might be left to tell their because vin diesel. I mean say what you will about the guy but he. He's a person who puts a ton of thought into mythology and stuff in across all of these franchises so he he's one of the driving creative forces behind vast furious franchise and it seems like it's sort of his his passion project for like super weird sci fi stuff so yeah i'm wondering if anybody out there has any any ideas but All right let's talk about our last story which involves of course fast and furious franchise and F nine is in theaters right now. I'm going to spoil the very end of s nine a mid credits scene here. So if you've not seen the i guess is technically the tenth fast and furious movie. Got account hobson charleston. There then now is the time to pause and go watch the movie and then come back so Justin lin has said. That are actually. It was vin diesel himself. Who said the the final fast and furious going to be a starting filming in january of of this coming year. He said i'm doing fast. Ten part one part to the finale of saga in january. So that really makes it seem like it is going to be like a two part thing instead of like fast ten and fast eleven of anybody cares about the semantics of that of that difference But interestingly the idea of justice for han which is a concept. We talked about a lot on. The podcast has not been Really fulfilled in f night. So those of you who stuck around for the mid credits of f nine realize or know that uh sung kings character. Han shows up and basically comes face to face with jason Jason sims character. Um deckert shaw very very briefly in that mid credit scene it just cuts to blacks. Sorta teases this Epic confrontation between these two characters. After stevens character seemingly killed han many movies ago But in a new interview with the hollywood reporter sung kang. The the actress place on was saying Justice for han has not been served. It hasn't been served because someone that is dear to han gal. Gadot giselle Who died in a superior. Six is not here anymore. So how is that resolved. And if i find the man responsible for it luke evans own shaw. What do i do to him. So we'll see and this sort of made me think. Chris because i know that you're not like a scholar of this franchise but Luke evans characters the villain in fast furious six and he did not kill giselle but he was like i guess loosely responsible for her death. 'cause he was the villain in that movie and then decker is the one who who like you know. Tried to close the circle of for benjamin ended up killing han so I always just assumed that justice for honam hans return and all that was just going to be this big face off between the han end and jason statement characters but it sounds like the real motivation. The real revenge here that hamas going. After is luke evans character..

Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League

"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

"dwayne johnson" Discussed on Currently On

"Good Morning. Everyone. It is Monday August the third two, thousand, twenty. It is currently ten twenty three am central time, and in this episode of the currently on Podcast I have some breaking news now. This breaking news deals with sports. And I know typically so far in this podcast, we've talked about music. We've talked about movies. We've talked about TV shows, but this podcast is really dedicated to anything that is currently on anything that will be currently on because a lot of times giving you information about something that will be coming out. In the next few weeks or in the next few months, but we also at times turn our attention to the sports world. And this is something that was currently on and then the pandemic hit, and once that happened everything got shut down and it looked like this particular thing was going to go out of business and it was going to be no more. What am I referring to referring to the xfl now I was really enjoying the xfl I thought it was. Some creative ideas from different rule changes and I was kinda rooting for them. You know. Hopefully, this would be successful, wasn't successful the first time they tried it. So maybe it would be successful this time. I was supporting I was watching it. Other ratings were doing really good at the beginning, and then they started kind of a steady decline, but we're were still holding I. Think enough to make a TV networks happy because they were looking for live content because live content gets people to actually tune in, I don't know when it's live. So So I thought that they had a chance thought, they had a chance to make it. Look like they were going to be able to at least you know play a second season. So everything was looking at least hopeful for the xfl pandemic. Happened it shutdown than it looked like there was some conflict between ship. It looks like it looks like it was over, it was done, and then all of a sudden about fifteen minutes ago, someone sent me this. Are you ready for? And a wild turn of events it appears as if the ex F. L. was purchased by dwayne. Johnson or you may know him the rock. dwayne. The Rock Johnson reportedly purchased the EX F. L. for fifth teen million dollars. Now, I cannot one hundred percent confirmed that this is accurate as of right now. But that is the report I have here are some more information. About this. So in a while turn of events, it appears as if the xfl was purchased by dwayne Johnson and a report from Spartak Oh, the xfl has been purchased by Dwayne, the Rock Johnson fifteen million dollars Johnson is in partnership with Red Redbird capital, an investment group along with his ex wife Dani Garcia. Sport Echo on their twitter says, breaking news. The Rock is the new part owner of the xfl, this is fantastic. Fantastic news for fans of the XFL, if the League has any chance of surviving a bankruptcy and the current pandemic, Johnson is the guy to save it his name, his legacy, and his presence can really impact the league and the positive way. So now here now, this is from ESPN. Confirming that the xfl has been purchased by a group that includes Dwayne the Johnson Aka, the rock for fifteen million dollars. The deal is contingent on court approval. Alright and see. The XFL had a lot going for them before the pandemic hit and Dwayne Johnson believes he can bring it back. The cell couldn't have come at a better time for the League after a disappointing finish to their twenty twenty season. It looks like X. Files Future was over some remain hopeful after the League was put up for sale. Especially when reports surfaced that doesn't have investors were interesting purchasing the league thankfully for the XFL and its fans. The day has come for the leaks potential resurrection with Dwayne, Johnson, and his partners, and charge. The ceiling is now higher than it was presell. While this doesn't guarantee the league's return. It's a huge step in the right direction I. Hope that they. Purchasing it for fifteen, million dollars was at fifteen million. WanNa give the, I, don't want to give you incorrect number. Fifteen I. Hope if they pay if they purchased it for fifteen million this brings about the league's return because I don't know what else she would get for your fifty million dollars. What what else do you get the extensive tape library? Hopefully, it will be the return. So hopefully, they can partner with. The networks or or some maybe a good streaming service. I don't know what the future will be, but it looks like the xfl possibly has been saved by a group and that includes Dwayne. The Rock Johnson. Now remember does require court approval. So I just wanted to grab the IPAD really quick. Bring you this information. And we'll see what happens. So you can post comments, you can email me news. I. F at Yahoo Dot. com, are you excited or you watch it? Will you support it? Were you watching it just give me your thoughts on the XFL and possibly its future Just some breaking news wanted to get out there, and we'll. We'll continue to follow the story. Everyone.

His arms are the silex like how does he find a sweater that fits though shoulders understand. He talked about his great friend. Kevin Hart's Accidents Sir covering. Yeah he talked about how he brings his own gym with him when he goes on the road like me given his size my sense is that he loads all the weights onto the plane. He's got a baby and we talked about Andy at a speaking of being the butt of the jokes. You've got Sandy. At the the the ROC give a recap of Andy on the Titan Games was pretty fantastic. I thought he was going to have a heart attack. You said it's on Ellen. If you've never seen that clip of average Andy Take on the Titan Game uh-huh please go watch it. Do you know that everybody in my life everybody over the last year. I'm just average Andy. Yeah it was just an average Andy segment argument right now. I'm just average Andy.

"Television event is sort of an extravaganza an extravagant log that aired last week on NBC. And if you've missed any of it pretty much all of it is up on Ellen tube entire segments you can watch them you can love 'em. NBC's them four days a plan and to have them repeated. It's all GonNa get repeated but the response the response has been amazing. The response has been incredible absolutely incredible. Yeah we just fell in love with these families like the same feelings. All of you are tweeting about. I mean imagine gain to know them and seeing their videos before we are booking them on the show and then getting them here in meeting them and then then getting to give them. Those surprises was truly one of my most proud fun moments. I think for all of us with anything that the four of us do primetime Kevin spearheaded. He's he's you know but Kevin Kevin has an unbelievable. We'll sort of shorthand with the network. He's also by far the smartest of the four of us animus creative and the most brilliant guys are so what we do. Is We jump on that train. Collect the cash short fuse but other than that. No but Kevin has been unbelievable in in in shepherding. These shows I I liked about these is they like. They brought the what the four of us do best. I think all together into one show. Nowhere else can you laugh and cry and then laugh and it is just an R.. I promise who are To our human interest steph. We have a human interest. Say Human interest if if you don't know what that means it's the the it's the people on our show who book everyone who is not a celebrity correct or or a musical artist right. So if it's a family in need or viral barrels star get viral star and athlete talented kid. You know Our human interest department often. If it's a topical booking something in the news right now and they're just amazing and they find find these families who have the incredible combination of being need but also being so like inspirational and like for example Rico. Who who is a young guy who was on? I think the first the first night who for a time. His family was homeless and they've never had it easy by any stretch and yet this is a guy who at one time in his life needed the services of a food pantry and once he saw what the food pantry did he began volunteering at the food pantry and continues news talent and has had no means and is still takes. You know a couple of days a week out of his life and volunteers food pants and he just leads with love of and light and and appreciation and gratitude. And it's it's so much fun for us as producers to be able to celebrate people like that and what a lot of folks said you know through social media is that boy. It's so nice to see that people in the world like Rico like like Mario like Laszlo family like the S. The kimble's like the bender. Family this kid Roy. All these folks that that you you met on this show that they're just they're inspirational to us. They're really inspirational to Ellen. Ellen just got such a kick out of each one of these families and loved celebrating out of that loved doing stuff for them to come out of that Lezo family tape now. The family is a family in Georgia in Atlanta Outside of Atlanta. Who It's father? Name Mario with two young girls whose there ought to be eight and four or something like that and they lost their mom. Just a few on something you know it's unimaginable right. Yeah and and to come out of their first hey peace and ellen is on the set trying to read the intro to bring them down on and she can see Ellen has been crying. We've been doing this for seventeen years and we've meet. We've met all kinds of people who are who some who are dying. Some who are. It's their last wish is to see Ellen I mean and not only is she not desensitized. She's sitting on her own set in tears so moved by this family and are as the EP are human interest will come to us with these stories and we just we have the privilege of sitting here going. Yeah that's a great one. Let's do that one. We don't have to go find them and skyping them in pre interview them and I gotta say our human interest after combat as Kevin said the combination of all of our departments human interest talent the celebrities were insane the the contents and what ellen can do is bring humor to all of which is which is you know I come from that one hour one topic world like the old donahue show. There wasn't wasn't Phil was funny but there there were we didn't there wasn't real. Humor injected into it and Kevin and Lauren and Allen do as just magical that's awesome and the we also sent these. Hi I producers with insanely talented field. Directors led by Suzanne loons and Dan Norris were out in the field and just doing these deep dives on these people. Also we got to see it. And that's why we got to see them living their real lives and home videos of these right little girls who had their mom just a couple of months ago and I don't know just green dot bank stepped stepped up and we were able to spoil them truly was like it wasn't a show to like go on the air and make a bunch of money for anyone. This was a show to make people feel good for the holidays. An and green dot bank. You know prior to getting ready to do this show. I'd never heard of green dot same. I had never heard thank you to watch. More family. Feud they advertise a lot. And I think you're watching it for all of us knew. This was an incredible opportunity due to expose themselves to a whole new audience. That maybe didn't know about them. And now I'm like so on board with Green Dot Edu and so they have been a huge partner. This this Guy Dan Norris who works with us on Game Games you know. We've all been in the same room together for seventeen years and Dan Norris steps into our lives with weird English accent the high stakes having a British accent. Trump's you're not because you're from England right just huge speaking you're American psyche. He just wants to beat them in that war. In seventeen seventy six. Why do they still talk like that? Shouldn't they anyway shit show over there. Why are they leaving? Or they're not leaving. I don't understand anything. We may have an equal but other but you know he just stepped stepped into our lives and has made everything better he just he just really helps us. Make the move into prime time in a way that I just I just think is fantastic. Couldn't agree more and these and these shows are very meaningful to us. And what's what's really special about our staff here and and about Ellen. Is that these the people that we met during these shows. Now stay in our lives. It's like it's not like they're gone. Yeah that's a lot of people. tweeted me when it was airing. People tweeted me as Rico really working. They're absolutely clear offered Rico a job during the first taping. Enrico has been with us since you work the day after that works here really funny so I like what he does. He's got to just stay in touch with them. And you know and hopefully we'll be able to update you on them as as we move forward as well. Thank you to every celebrity who participated and and they just you know is of any of our seven listeners. Knows those celebrities could they please and thank you to all the celebrities who participated and just to great lengths. They went to. Hopefully you saw the Melissa. Listen McCarthy segment we shot that in Atlanta where that day happened to be eighty degrees but because it was a holiday show and it was a Christmas field she she's still wore a really comfy cozy sweater because she wanted to make sure that people watching have the Christmas field so I I understand that what I don't understand. You're you're on that shoot what I don't understand and I heard reports of this. Yes she's just in the sweater but it is eighty degrees. Why did you feel the need to be in the SPEEDO? Yeah I wanted to. Yeah Melissa McCarthy nor comfortable no I just bring her into it no I was just hot I did not wear speedo but but yes I was lucky enough. Kevin assigned me to go down to Atlanta and I was lucky enough to work with Melissa McCarthy on that piece and she was just incredible edible. She's just what you see is what you get. Unlike the three of you right right you get andy off the couch which is hard to get him out in the field. There's nobody more talented than Andy. This you saying that you're GonNa want me working outside from now. I want you doing whatever it is. Ready to have. Indoor outdoor pets goes out the door caddy batter. And maybe on the East Coast outdoor executive. Search you can be the outdoor executive. Never the three of these. EPA's are. I'm not Eddie. May's who are funny for living laugh right and that's not easy to do at me but it's not always true and eva very very fast brain But yes thank you. Everyone for watching Kevin is deciding if he wants to make more of these shows right now and so if he does hopefully he'll hire us again. We're GONNA the need a little bump. If that's that was a lot of work that we are really really hoping we get to do more of these if not on a big special then at least we want to hear for more people if you know someone that needs a boost from ellen like the way that these families did we. We would love to hear about who you like to nominate for next time we get to do this. Ellen's greatest night. Hashtag is still alive and well you can just tell us has lots of places places on our website where you can submit. Our website posted your goal with Title L.

Everyone wants to do those games if you want to try out one of the game of games right. I didn't write into us. This is a real story.

"At nine. Pillai twenty Snyder. Idea for new segment. We've done the segment before but I don't know if we've ever named it, but this would be a pretty good name, who is the internet mad at. Event on Anna know that Mattis down? No, the internet is mad at Dwayne Johnson. Or as we lovingly refer to him the rock. I thought he was the highest paid actor and the sexiest man alive. All these everything you just said. Everything you just said is true of doing Johnson. Aka ACA the rock. Why are they mad at can you be mad at the rock? I don't care for his. He's our greatest spin. They're mad at him because he shared a picture and social media of his three-year-old daughter, jasmine, who is taking a swim class and in this particular swim class, for reasons that are not explained to me in this article, they do not wear bathing, suits. So the mere fact that he posted a picture of his child without clothing made people very mad at the rock. How old is she three cares? The Jumanji star shared a would you? If you were describing the rock, would you go to gym on certainly not? Goal. I don't know. Rachel Schwedt wrote this article. Squeeze, the the she star should again, the who would go there. Things wouldn't go skyscraper that was the greatest movie of last year. The Monje star shared a snapshot to see through the internet over that. Right, right. Shared a snapshot to social media on Monday morning. The captured a sweet moment between himself and his three year old daughter jasmine, one of the two girls that he shares with Lauren Hashem the photo shows the little girl, without clothes perched on the side of wing pool before jumping off and her famous father waiting there to catch her more than two point nine million people, including celebrity daddy to get a life. Including celebrity dads. David Beckham and Josh Brolin, liked the photo on Instagram. And that took place in the first two hours at the photo was posted. He got two point nine million people to like the photograph into ours. The star though deleted it shortly after amid criticism over the fact that his daughter wasn't wearing a bathing suit and the photograph but not before people had a chance to weigh in as so often happens on the internet. Why is she naked wrote one person? I love the rock, but this pick isn't necessarily for social media. They made bathing suits for a reason added another others insisted that keeping such a photo off the internet is about protecting the child. I've never I would never post a picture of a child naked in a pool on social media. I understand the message that is being conveyed, but there are some messed up people out there. One commentator wrote okay, that commentator. He doesn't wanna post it, then don't and of discussion of discussion. Why here's another. Why would you expose young child's body to people? No. I have to say. Was is a difference. If it was a boy. No. I don't think so. Do you think so? Yes. Do you how come because I think people oh a little girl, she should have this cute little bathing suit on babies. I'm sorry. They look and just diapers. Do. I know. But, but at three, you're kind of toeing the line a little bit more, because even though it doesn't appeal to us. There are plenty of very sick people out there. And that's a bonanza to see something like that. It's horrible. But it's true. Well, if that's the case then a one year old or a two year old. Yeah. Yeah. There are six anyway. You can't not do your life because of possible sick people out there. So what if you are the, this hypothetical, of course, pasties? You. I don't feel well. I don't feel well. If you're Dwayne Johnson, aka rock from Demonte from Jim we know him best from Jumanji engine Monje too. I didn't know there was there is too. I think so. All right. If you're him, and you're hearing this criticism and obviously he his reaction was why I better take it down. People are very upset about this. I should take it down. Would you have taken it down while you would've left it up because really it's, it's not a big deal. I don't think it is. But I do think right around the age of three although come on, there's a difference between two and three. That's true. I'd say you know sixteen definitely sixteen definitely sixteen but I also have to say and I'm not one for over sharing on the internet anyway. Right. But I, I would know before posting the photograph that there were going to be people who would be upset about it, and why do it if it's gonna make people upset because it's your life. And why can't you do what you want? Why do you have to worry about other people being upset? If you're saying something mean or racist or rude, right? Staff seem to bother most people anyway. In a pool. Right. It's not like she was at a restaurant. Here's the other question. Why wouldn't whoever's conducting these classes just for the sake of decency? Throw some swimsuits on the kids. That's not a big deal. Is it because really three year old kids? Don't you think just throwing a swimsuit, atom isn't the worst thing in the world? So I'm sure there are other kids in the lesson without suits onto not yet not in not in this particular photograph. It's just his daughter and him waiting there to catch her. But evidently, that it's I guess, it's a swimsuit optional class for some reason, but I, I can't tell you how many times at the beach here in the mid west, but on the west coast, I see this quite a bit. There's naked kids run around the beach. I don't see it. I really don't. Because it's I gotta tell you I was pretty excited to by Michael his first swimsuit when he was one years old, and one year old and son from Germany. Yes. And I put Michael on the bed and his cute little trunks to take a picture and realize that they really weren't like diapers. So my bed was wet, but I got a great picture. Well, but that's to me, very fun to put a little swimsuit on a baby. Right. So I would do that. But I don't see deal is right? Otherwise the whole class was naked. It doesn't say it doesn't say the whole class was naked. But you just think as part of the class, somebody would say, oh, by the way, let's throw some suits on for the class. The biggest adjustment for me was a lot of times what we go in Maine. You get a lot of people tourists from Canada who come down, and I don't know if they don't sell swimsuits and Canada, but a lot of the Canadian swim in their underwear. Their Aki players. They go from the ice pool. The first time I saw I thought, well, this is going to happen often. Whatever whatever underwear they had on. They just take their clothes off. And then they swim in their underwear. It's like I I've never seen it in the seventies crisis with laundry detergent in Canada, where they weren't able to get it for weeks at a time, but in the Senate right that started this practice swimming in your underwear. Oh, okay. I don't know when to believe and whatnot. I really don't fall for everything. But are you sure it wasn't could get? It was powdered, which means powder. Oh, bathing suits, you know, look like boxers is underwear. This is flat out underwear. Like, all right. So the first time I went, well, you're not gonna see this every day. It's people who just took their clothes off in, in their underwear. But then by, like thirty eight thirty nine time I saw it. I went all there's something going on in Canada. They just don't have swum suits. They just wear their underwear. Swimsuits see, I wouldn't think that would be comfortable because it would take awhile to dry. Right. Right. Would you rather see them in a speeder speed speeder, a Speedo or naked? It depends on that particular swimmer. A service from her basis. All right. We'll take a break, we'll get you. Some news. Jimmy crane is gonna stop by comedian actor Jimmy crane. He's got a one man show coming up stick around. It's Bill and Wendy on WGN.

"NewsRadio eight fifty AM and ninety four one FM. Good morning and welcome to the program. Christian toto. My partner alongside we've got a couple of movies, the talk about some upcoming movies and one that you and I both saw called fighting with my family from the trailers. I got the impression that Dwayne Johnson would have a bigger part, and he actually had. Nope. Didn't you? Yeah. He's they I knew he'd have a smaller part because it wasn't touted as Dwayne Johnson movie when it was pretty small, but he kind of overseas things in a way, it's kind of bayton switch. That's right coming attraction. Anyway, it was better than I thought it was kind of damning with faint praise going to be an Academy Award nominee talking about the Academy Awards. We'll talk about the big Oscar extravaganza less Sunday night. Remember, I said I was up in the air as to whether I was going to see it. Whether I wanted to inflict pain on myself. About politics that they love to parade. An incestuous arrangement. It's the audience and the various presenters onscreen playing to each other in their closed universe. Right. I mean, imagine if someone came up and said, I am very pro-life. And I think you should be to the entire crowd. We start throwing tomatoes at that. Wouldn't they stand up and defend that person's right to have an opinion on controversial issue? You haven't seen Hollywood today. That was a stupid question. I know excuse me, what's happening at Hollywood. And TOTO I have a review of a film, which we'll talk about next week called, Greta which sounds good on paper. It's from a thought focus features, which is a kind of an art house studio, and it's really bad. A kinda rainy at serenity bio pic about Greta Garbo. No in about an older woman who befriends a younger woman. They have a daughter mother daughter relationship in the beginning. And then there's a clingy factor where the mother doesn't want to let go and Isabel who pair is the star khloe grace is the co star good cast. And boy, it's I'm gonna have fun talking about this one. And I hope we get some callers because I'm very curious to see what our audience thinks that because the reviews have not been terrible about sixty or so percent right now and run tomatoes. So you've seen it. Yeah. Yeah. It's wow. It's it's a head scratcher. Okay. So it's not a fairy tale about Hansel. And Greta, no, it's not I wish it were. Okay. I'd throw that. I haven't seen it yet and based on your description probably sometime ago and movie reviews for what twenty five years, I had to decide that I can't possibly see every movie, and I see a lot of movies. I know I'm not going to like not gonna like they're important movies. And they're gonna get big box office and server obliged to talk about it. And we have members of the Mike Rosen movie club who help us with the movie review and some of them like it. It's very subjective. No matter of taste this or what movies interest you in which ones you like, which what you don't which is great. I mean, there's a right or wrong in this. But recognize I can't see him. All it took me some time to do this. But I just started crossing off in my older age movies now that I just don't want to be bothered with. I get a completely, you know for me. I don't like period movies, you don't like horror movies and just certain John was appealed to us are done. And I I do like syntax syntax and grammar I prefer apostrophe movies. It's uncommon movies. That's so much period. Movie. Just kind of. And that's true. They're very abrupt. They are abrupt. Okay. So let's let's start with. We'll we'll save the Oscars for a little can probably spend two segments on that. Guys. Talk about it. And I suspect a lot of our viewers at least watch some of it. The ratings were apparently a little bit better than last year. But still crappy compared to the history second worst ever is the bad news, but up from last year is the good news. Yeah. And why do you suppose it was up from last year? Maybe people curious about the host free Oscars. Maybe the fact that there were some really genuinely popular movies like a star is born but rhapsody in Black Panther were up for best picture. So there's always the theory that if there are more well known movies at blockbuster types that more people will tune in say, I've got to see if it's gonna win or not. All right. Tell us about fighting with my family. Yep. Based on a true story. It's actually based on a documentary by two thousand eleven two thousand twelve that Dwayne Johnson. The former wrestler sought thought it was fascinating and decided to make a movie so he's only a cameo player here. But he's also one of the film's producers. It's about a family in Norwich England, and they are a wrestling clan. They all Russell they teach a school of wrestling and the youngest of them, a boy and a teenager boy in a teenage girl wanna be with the WWE, which is sort of the best of the best. If you're going to be a wrestler. That's what you want to aspire to and they get the chance to train for the WWE. But he doesn't get in. She does her neighbors page that's her stage name, and it's all about her trying to get into the upper echelon of the WWE. It's not easy. There's training. There's sort of mentally challenging you have to have a bit. A big boulder personality. You can't just be a kind of a quiet demure person. But this wrestling, you gotta have the razzmatazz. So it's all about that journey and fighting with the with my family, if you just heard the title, you'd think it was some kind of a a serious domestic drama. Yeah. There are elements of disagreement within the family. But as you indicated is by the way, this is a truer to the true story is based on a lot of movies are. Yeah. Everything I've read about it seems pretty darn accurate. So fun to watch. And also. Yeah, the family themselves. They there's some backstories one of the kids is in jail the patriarch here played by Nick frost is always fun to watch on screen. He served time as well. But there's a lot of love there too. And I think their their hearts are in the right place, which makes the story even better. Now, this is a family from England, and it's a working class family. And it's fighting with my family is a double on time because the entire family is into wrestling the daddy and the mommy and the daughter and the brother, and they aspire to great things, but they may not get there. So at the see, and as I mentioned last week when we talked about the teas on this. The mother replete with bright red hair and a nose ring. Or is it a lip daughter has liberating? No. But and and a a lower class English accent is certainty from game of thrones. Who in that movie is elegant and Queen like quite here. So I wouldn't suspect that this is a performance that she would be prouder of than her see performance, but you know, she's an actor or actress what's proper these days actor, they prefer actor, right? Context. I think actresses perfectly fine. But I think we talk about the skill the profession. I think you say someone's an actor. Okay. I'll say actor they like to show their range, and here's a paycheck associated with some of the funniest moments. Are they family being is sort of verbally out in the open as as possible while another couple is there visiting them. So it's it's funny stuff. Tell us what happened to page after what we've seen on the screen. Well, she has career as a wrestler and then she had to neck injuries. And after the second one, they said, listen, you have to stop you could suffer paralysis you keep going. So last year, she retired. She still with a WWE of behind the scenes, and how long of a career did she have, you know, I think of from two thousand eleven to two thousand eighteen so give or take I don't know how consistently she wrestled. But that was her rain. So I don't, you know, listen, she's still young woman. I don't know her exact age, but I think those kind of injuries you really can't risk it. And you know, whether you think, you know, wrestling. Obviously stage, but it's intense. People get hurt all the time, and you can have severe consequences. So this is not a fake fake sport. It's just the scripted sport. How prominent a wrestler wishy? You know, I don't know. I I'm not a huge wrestling fan. I knew her name for sure. So I think she was sort of in that maybe near the upper echelon, I don't know if callers have a better grasp aware slaying, but she was she was a name for sure. And she did win a belt at some point. Yeah. So I won't say any more about. I don't know how the whole belts. I barely know how belt systems work in boxing because it's different divisions. And there's also chicanery going on. But I imagine there's some theatrical flourish with who wins and who loses in the titles. Well, wrestling, of course, is a very old sport. Hell it goes back to Rome right lympics at one point before they awarded a belt to champions. I had suspenders. Yeah. Which was not as elegant so suspenders were more popular right anyway. All right. We've got a member of the Mike Rosen movie club actually to who want to help us with the movie reviews, and we'll get to them. Let's take a break and just a few seconds. So we'll take that break in and talk about that tees for movies coming up next week, and as promised we'll talk about the Oscars go through some of the winners.

So a serum man reportedly told authorities he gave his ailing wife methamphetamine, and that they had quote, a death party before she died. So the husband said he did not get his wife medical help. Because you did not want to die in a nursing home. According to criminal charges filed against him. His wife's name is Deborah. Lynn johnson. She was sixty nine years young. She was found dead inside her cereals home January twenty fifth after her husband, Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne John Wayne Arden Johnson. He is not the rock. He is much. He's more like a squeaky.

This is part of the reason why we've got we got sent the story by many people and mostly it's got do this man's mugshot. Which is absolutely right. He is having the time of his life. He does not have any teeth. He's completely both. He's got the meth scabs because he's itchy. But I will say he's eleven years younger than his wife. Fifty eight years old. So she died is kind of like a messy thing to have an older wife than the younger man, which is like it's not uncommon in general, but it seems to be more. So in that world. I don't I'm like my wife's Robin cradle with me. Man. I don't know if that's true. I'm like a big horn EBay. Okay. We'll thirties responded.

So he's like so I came on nine. Yes, she's cold. But that's why I keep my beer and her. So what was written on the front door? You might ask the words death party P A R D death party. God. Hell that's what was written on. Really that. You read it as party at it. And think about that. Because that's what he was. He's like he literally cheeky he broke her out of the nursing home.

"So this whole thing seems strange to me. I mean, I wish it were one or the other. I wish if they were doing this to get rid of the regular ads, but I guess they're not going to do that. So. Yeah. I don't know why they think this is a good idea. But I I will get Benesch shape about it. I I wonder if it's going to be like everything everything on Hulu where when you pause it you get the ad. That's the same ad that runs ten times during that program. You've got that. Right. Like where like the same advertisers seem to same advertisement like five times the one I keep saying now is the one where they they say like free free free a lot for axing taxes or something like all they say commercial is the word free. It's maddening. They played every car show. I will say that of an image ad is better than a video. Which when I first was reporting on the story. I thought that it would be a video and I'd like I was like that sounds horrifying. But if it's just a banner, the maybe it's okay, I do feel sort of inundated by at the time. And I feel like pause screens or the one break that we get from them. But yeah, I mean, I'll probably be annoyed at first, but it'll just fade into the background as as it goes on long as it doesn't pop up during the program. Like, I hate those like lower third ads like on like actual network TV and as long as it's not a video ad because that'd be so annoying. If you pause something like to go answer the phone and all of a sudden the video ad plays horrible. Okay. Anyways in. Lastly, let's give a reaction to this Hobson shot trailer. I'm actually kind of disappointed that Ben was not able to make the podcast, David. He's such a fast and furious fan that would have been great to get his reaction to this as well. Peter surprise. I am here anytime fast and furious. As mentioned, I just I'm conjured out of thin air. Okay. So I I should say you should go watch this Hobson shot trailer online. Just pause this podcast. Ain't go. Check it out because we're going to give our reaction that we're giving a reaction to the trailer. So I guess that doesn't spoil anything. But to understand what we're talking about yet. Go watch it. So Ben, what did you think of the stroller has kinda love this? I mean, it's a Christmas talking about this earlier in our slack channel. This is so far removed from the first fast and furious movie, but it feels very much in keeping with the ridiculous tone that the the franchise has has adopted over the past few years. The relationship between Dwayne Johnson. Jason stadium has been entertaining in small doses in the past. I'm not fully convinced that I'm going to be as charmed by the end of this as I have been thus far by them because maybe like a little bit too much. But in terms of like, the stylists the visuals the the plot, which seems absolutely absurd. The action all of the stuff that you sort of come to a fast and furious movie four I'm here for the spinoff. I'm I'm all about it. Yeah. I thought this shriller looks a lot more colorful than the festival various movies. I mean, I guess the cars and the best and furious films are colorful, but like just the lighting and like even like the Corky upbeat like cover of. Why can't we be friends doesn't seem like something you'd see in a fast and furious trailer the comedy seems ramped up as the action? I mean, I I mean, this is David. H two did, you know deadpool two, atomic blonde, John wick? But I didn't expect to see you know, that big insane action set piece on the side of a skyscraper. That kind of like I feel like the pitch for this was like what if goes protocol. But more ridiculous. Plane Johnson and skyscrapers lately. H c what did you think of this shriller against my better judgment, a high absolutely loved this trailer? I still have not forgiven decker Shaw for killing Hawn and getting away with it Scot free while getting invited to the barbecue. I might add I'm still very upset with that..

"What are you making a pitch? This should be the movie of the year. No, no, no, no. I'm just I'm concerned that you are so cynical about Dwayne Johnson, aka the rock and his denial that he did not call people like manga and the porn watching Christian snowflakes. He did not criticize them he says despite. Publicity. You come after him a little bit. I hate I loathe. I despise Dwayne Johnson, aka the rock why. Because he doesn't want to offend the very people that he did offend. Let me explain. Okay. All right. First off. There is a reason that I got it in for Dwayne Johnson the rock years and years ago as a Super Bowl, and it was at San Diego, and it was Tampa Bay versus the Oakland Raiders that's one when Gruden who's now the Oakland Raiders coach one four Tampa Bay went onto bakery. They're five and they were going crazy on the sidelines. And sitting in front of me a few rose was twain Johnson, aka the rock not a movie star. But definitely the star of the WWE slash WWE. No doubt about it attitude. Big attitude. Really? Yeah. But then again, I had the attitude too. And we were like staring each other down. What year was this forget, hey, make yourself useful here checkout, the turn off the plane for God's sake Christian. No, I think it was soon after the attack nine eleven I'm not quite sure. But it was San Diego. So you're saying that you both had little now, you think that he recognized you he knew who you are not quite sure I think he did. Did you have the outfit on I always have the outfit because you like to get the attention. So I think this was two thousand and three shanty eagles stadium. This was the chargers home stadium at the time when he actually played in San Diego, but it was the Super Bowl. And again, he was very pleasant. You civil to everyone else. But I think he didn't like the fact that I was so few rows behind him. And so he stared me down, and actually I just returned the share. And this guy's huge guy as you know, he's a monster. You know, he's got muscles on top of muscles. But I just didn't let up and the guy was Whitney. Johnny legit said. Hey, he's up here, man. Yeah. You're not gonna start a fight with Iraq. And so recently, my youngest son hunter hunters only seven, and he's going on, you know, kids. Go online show researching the googles, and he goes, you're not Iraq. Twain Johnson is the rock now. Why would he think that you were the rock because my original nickname, even before? I started the guardian. Angels in nineteen seventy nine was the rock. I started a group called the rock gate. We cleaned up the streets of the Bronx. And then I evaluated into the guardian. Angels. You can see it in the documentary called vigilante. Yes now available on itunes. They even ask me. How did you get the nickname the rack? So I don't even think Dwayne Jackson was born at that time. I will see you being called were the same age if I'm not mistaken. But I so so you're saying you're the Oji rock, you're the original. That's right. We should do a podcast right about this. Oh, gee, I am the original rock. He's not. But then again, he is obviously far better known and worldwide known edge, the rock you are worldwide known as well. But maybe not maybe on not ran scale that because I would rock people's world. People would ask me you'd Iraq say, yeah, why you want me to rock your world hit you so hard. Your mother will feel the vibration. Oh, so let's put that aside already got beef with him on that. Then he submits to this interview on something that is similar to the National Enquirer in the United States. You can get it in England. It's everywhere. You know, it's the big tabloid and he sits down nearly star..

"I was watching it because net flicks very wisely released this on New Year's day, which seemed like a very smart marketing move on their part because everyone's going to be looking. For their New Year's resolutions as well as being hung over. So watching this, and it's very like. Yeah. Like calming sweet show that follows Marie Kanda who actually has had a falling before the show started. She published a book, I think called spark joy, and she has like this huge following a across the world people who follow her sort of like mantra of minimalism, call themselves converts with a K. So now, this is just her way of reaching out to more people in the show also comes with a nice little tips for like how to fold your clothes for the most maximum storage space, or what to do with your miscellaneous, items and stuff or that kind of thing. So it's it's supposed the good advice show as well. As a nice show to like, see other people's more worst accommodations is not hoarders by any means like these people don't live in like, you know, Slava unle- habits or anything like is just a basically mostly ordinary people in teaching them. How to get? Of the stuff. They don't need. But it hasn't inspired you to tidy up. Kind of it was watching it while drinking, and I was like I want to clean up my dresser my door. And then I threw all my clothes on the floor. And it was like this is Floyd you. Yeah. I I don't feel. I'm definitely not a hoarder. My place is I would consider it kind of clean. But I do have a lot of like. You know, I have a lot of t-shirts by I've been holding onto. I'm like, I'm going to lose weight. I'm gonna fit back into the sea shirt. So I have like racks of t shirts, I don't use. And they have a lot of books. Val. Probably never pick up. I feel like I need to watch the show it good for just like ordinary people who have just little too much stuff. And like you need to get rid of some of that clutter, very cool, and that is on that flex. Yes. Cool. Jacob what have you been watching? Oh, I watched the titan games, the new athletic competition show hosted by Dwayne Johnson, and Peter the question is is it better or worse fixes? Yeah. When I was watching the Golden Globes Ed commercials for the show, and I was going to take you. I was like thinking about like Jacob you need to see the show. This looks totally bound your alley. Oh, it is. We cover the trailer on the side of that a while back the I wrote an apple yes. This is very much my thing because easy comparison. Ultimate beach master, which is Netflix athletic competition show. But whereas be master is very international focus as a very large cast and has like a lot of people being eliminated per episode is the window at down. The titan games is very focused on only a handful of people and actually split it into to competitions men and women because it's one of the problems with with bees master is that the women can ever do as well as men and every consistently every single season. So far, it's been unfair. Like, he's Washington Kribi, gifted female athletes, should not be able to do the things have been could do. So by by splitting the two competitions can cheer on both watch a really powerful woman just blues man constantly as it was like that makes be master upsetting. Sometimes. Whereas take games is all but booked entirely be about uplifting as much as possible. Mets wayne. Johnston's whole, you know, a persona these days is how can people like how can I encourage people inspire people and he's bear. Even a host is the whole job at the show is sad. The sidelines of the camera watching him washing. Everybody else compete always says things like they've got heart. Look at them. They're gonna win. I liked him is just showed a Darlie about very strong people much stronger than all of us on the show put together doing these herculean insane tasks they would break my body in two seconds and take time to be positive lots of high fiving and hugs. Everybody's always smiling very positive in that way. And I really enjoyed watching it and the first episode of the two parts I I watched it on Hulu it streaming right now. It's very very good.
