"This week we're up up and away lovely hot air balloon with Felicity Jones Star King yes the director of the King David Michaud it's always nice to bring people coming to you a day after Halloween and really hopes the most of you haven't been killed in your sleep why not they are the best people the are the very finest people and be honest most Hello Fahd I'm Chris you had and welcome to the Empire podcast this week running due to what I can only describe as a hedge lean Snafu a work arg e Queen Helena her hello how are you I'm good I'm good I'm no respect you as a person thanks I didn't WanNa look at that area sure anything below the neck not sure that I am I should be doing I'm just glad groomed my eyebrows in that case Mark God that's that I haven't had time to really prepare for this week's podcast you although thankfully I live in an apartment block so therefore we tend to not really hotels Shukla Shukla's and I also have some of the little I'm not very good costumes they always seem a bit scary and difficult I like Halloween as a concept we watched hocus pocus the other night so I'm very much in the spirit ninety four days it's only like seventy eight minutes or so you can watch it twice in the night that's a shame but but I don't do I'm not a big Halloween Guy I've other stuff going on but I don't have I'm not around your house asking for trick or treat don't invite them in Helen in case it doesn't Chris I mean actually you know Bucky buffy obviously Butler she's Rian chant the house once you've accent invited vampire into kind of lock them out again abusive for him in the in the Anne Rice novels so you know if you were to do if I'm part movie right and you had to create one bit of Lore says about the last twenty years suddenly Vampires Allergic to silver which has always been aware world thing before I'm sorry we quite nice if it was like a pleasant smelling her of some sort that was bad for round part so like I some of the stuff that they have to resort to like buffy and supernatural and things like that because they always have bags full I like that I'm going to one sure we just found Pires once they come into your house because I also liked by the way it's okay for them to be in your bedroom bedrooms not always a place of you know of as the moment so you know Salami totally fine if it is sexual then vipers are and the kitchen totally fine foul front wants to come in garlic's stuff food in their mouths in the hope of fighting them off there's some questions yeah so here is a question from twitter and it comes from one of pronounced your name correctly I hope that your vision I think you are I don't know why I as a beating so what is your most prized slashed feud hero book there was stuff that I knew I'd seen on streaming services and I'm like oh I don't have to worry about a particular entry to try and get hold of it which was immense ingredient again anyway my dvd's are color coded by spine it's very upsetting for more bookcases full of books there we go the leather bound some DVD's Mahogany it does kind of a big deal would you have stuff yeah yeah it's nice to know that I have still have the region one dvd I have the leather bound genuinely lead or maybe fake leather I Neil Gaiman and I got signed and he drew me a Sandman inside and I think that would be one your house is burning down what what you save well I genuinely I would be tempted by those but I think I what do I have a really surgery oh no wait my diehard box at this shape and like the next on by Toby Ziegler so I'd probably say those priceless priceless stuff this is a response to stories this week that Disney is beginning to also of the Prince Charles Cinema for example over here in London that was show these run theaters or repertory cinemas which is really frustrating now they seem this is some kind of essentially taking stock in that they actually rethink this nine again keeps those in taking over and then they can afford to take risks on slightly less worrying times in that respect I think you know there was a statistic that I would I would suspect it's more like a third or quarter so there is a a should be lower than they have ever been in history you should be able to digital copies movie movie but it'll have you know they were advertising Netflix and Amazon Prime Shoud be filled with movies and how crazy right but they're not now and the Joyce of casts who'll be very much of the never seen die hard because that's an old movie or I've never seen future originally said that she was working with someone who refused to watch back to the future is an expense but that stuff's on Netflix and Amazon prime but the fact remains that one thousand nine hundred seventy s heist movie really fun heist movie saw it as a kid really the thin man which like French movies one of the sequels I wanted to watch the original I it was incredibly difficult to find would rather give somebody might not you know impair my one thousand nine or whatever the heck it is to watch these old movies as a as a a stick with which to Disney they should open the Fox vaults I mean they have refer James Dyer and we went to see die hard the Prince Charles Enemies incredible I've never seen it in the big screen before and a which gave it a certain result I have to say and also made the the symbolic imagery the watched those films and if they're not available anymore and that's that's really really sad amazon prime I think able to find some classic really older horror films for example on Amazon prime all arsenic and old lace it's not the version really yeah it's a nineteen sixties so you think you're looking for it is not always the thing that you're looking for I do think that the studios dollars on every single time but we do WANNA see your movies we do see your movies and the idea that unnecessarily even studios or companies but maybe buying up old films wholesale it's this channel but if you have satellite TV or whatever there's a great channel called talking pictures the jewels like Suddenly will be on there or the day the you mean giants need to up in the meantime I mean there are resources that you should look to about sometimes to see some of these things so so you just you know go out there and poke there's loads and loads more including somebody just said why an American Werewolf in London is a needs specialist attention that wouldn't be available in closer hospitals just the other week I never thought to ask him this is the biggest question of all the huge at last cell as if that is indeed your real name and I strongly is are we won't see it or just wait for me to ask in panic on Thursday or Friday I Jones or David Michel I'm from tiny flecks haven't unplanned this podcast in any up with the very thought provoking increasingly timely the rover it's the fourth fifth four fifth fear and with the Michaud Joel Edgerton Magic sprinkle over the top and Timmy to with Robert Pattinson not Robert Pattinson is the dough FA blurts Mendelssohn Joel Edgerton as false stuff Sean Harris is again a bit of a a left field turn from show and when he came into London around the time loan film festival is the diocese of you know those early days was a mixture of youth and just the sided good so am I so this should be twenty minutes do you WanNa yes good stuff because I read somewhere that you actually learn about the movie that you make as you're consumed me so completely for so long almost from the outside and May and I find in the process that I always learn stuff about I just I was just amazed at how how frequently people misquoted you know this is after animal kingdom I just read everything goes mysteriously old good and then was absolutely positive I didn't say you've been living with for a long time now you Joel I started writing the back in two thousand thirteen I have no idea what's next and I'm liking it because it feels new every movie I'm very excited by the prospect of whatever's the old brain cells yeah my scholars an empty vessel movie six years but also you know as has been the case before as well as conversations with JAL JAL came to me the Henry full applies and Henry Five on stage when he was fresh out of drama school okay and too shouted drama school you never know whether or not his career waiting for you and and and we love working together yeah so yeah and those early compensated when he basically to make a medieval film whatever that means but it doesn't feel like me okay and also relishing who just being because I'm what I'm doing when I'm thinking about my own stuff is I don't know getting caught and following up this movie that as you say was was universally liked and you know his does I would say yeah and that was itself kind of abstract challenge that was a movie correct we were going to write a script about a kind of Koch ice in the desert I think I you know possibly to my own detriment but I have the idea of doing something exactly hod takes so much time it doesn't feel like a job at feels yeah but it also means I think I probably make it difficult for people to is vastly different from war machine which was different from the roofer which is vastly different from Asmara that he returned to again Joel Bian one guy pearce been another Ben Hannigan and again it's not something that you like to do when do you know you've found somebody the first time because they're really really good really really good people to being you and there is something you know the movies are huge big uh-huh Johnson exception but it's always nice to bring people that especially this one and Joel plays falstaff in this and he's been tastic and altitude can you talk about that decision did I come from him that I come from you well you know and politics but also do with form you know it's with we didn't want to do is a story of Henry five almost as a kind of well-intentioned tyrant yeah shaw some form of Middle English and we want to make the movie in either of the it's kind of it's it it has a formality to it I'm where in that period but also kind of getting a hint that middle English probably in a way the only people in the movie who speak in modern art pay else just has a kind of regional flavor and that's obviously a decision you make right at the beginning impulses works now we did it's it's tricky to sit at a computer we went to Lombok in Indonesia for a couple of weeks early on that was beautiful in wearing the room together but then when the writing starts it's a little bit of and I've had that experience before car ride with other people who I knew were going to direct you going to have to Mike the thing I understand I don't want to argue with I'm just GonNa step back by love karate especially when you know someone is beautiful as jaw of this strange abstract challenge of this feels like in two hours plus movie as it is but was there a longer version at one point did you have want for the fact that Joel character and I'm full stuff is purely shakespearian minute but it was it was quite refined I I'm quite surprised is three the first assemblies are yeah they're always bloated into the beginning of the project two thousand thirteen you were talking about the the themes in the movie and engined I would say has the way the world has changed over the last few years to that change your approach to the movie much as it is UNEMOTIONAL Journey Hal himself it's moving to a certain the universe the better and for worse you know I think they takes in check during their yeah it's a kind of a George W. n. a. and then Obama Administration was it's just interesting to think about how films become timely overtime need right now is predicting ten minutes in the future I know it's funny it's the I had the same I've been working on it for a while but now it's suddenly relevant it's been relevant for fifteen years um absolutely and one question for the David I believe was eight minutes it was ten minutes twelve minutes and just I'm fascinated hey who's timing and be what's it like being on the does everyone get this all the movies at Venice get standing ovation the one jerk that's still sitting doesn't yeah untested Davis been an absolute pleasure talking to you thanks so much thank you for having me all right so let's David me show interesting award which I think is is worth talking about so the pilot TV podcast oh good off their proposed star wars trilogy and their party too busy Kathleen Kennedy's statement about it which says pays tribute to them is incredible storytellers a bit to me let's be possible salty sure yeah yeah okay so so the theory was that we thought honestly don't it might be wishful thinking yes I'm I'm really intrigued I don't know I don't know what who knows who knows but you know four panel discussing their their work on game of thrones earliest stages of the the first pilot in fact from their from their pitch onwards showing a certain amount of reflection and consideration I think what the Internet jumped on the and even when things didn't work and even where they had the wrong priorities or whatever else they've been rescued you just wiped quite hard the the strength of the jumping does that make sense quite entirely warranted no I yeah I think it was basically to show runners appointment again I have to come at this from the point of view of someone who's seen the three episodes of the game of and they obviously chose Benny off a wise as sort of culprits for so that's okay but I think the problem with the game of thrones finale and I may have said this on the owns his entire ethos has been I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that the other person that's been the whole show up until now the whole show has been you don't trying to reach a conclusion so by the nature of trying to come to a conclusion they were oh so I have some sympathy with them but at the same time absolutely and I think that's also throw into sharp relief by the other news this week that came from the game of thrones and Northern Ireland where it was put on film and shot and that an amazing cast as well a news came this week that like the first pilot outdone instead is they have announced a second pilot which has gone directly to I believe in novel or series of novels but the Tar Sar Gary and Family Guy and game of thrones so my question is why isn't Jane Goldman get a do over levels but it is based on a door Dr Martin Story Okay Yeah and dragons I think or or maybe they're sort of decline a little bit as well so it's Greider and I'm I'm kind of bummed that we don't get see what she was working on a yeah very much so she's amazing why not on the best writers in the business but this new one house the Dragon's going to be overseen is that George Martin is in the words of Neil Gaiman not my bitch but at the same time and of course Maguelonne Nick as well who directed many of the key episodes game of thrones I was told because I think by large sequels are are on your we're Iron Alton goose with game of thrones I know that whenever you do that it it a prequel route yeah sequel fine I'm a mumble that and this and is better call Saul which is also pre is not to say the prequels count work began they can the door open your trap yes one of his many japes on twitter but no it was a joke about a piece of gasoline off-broadway show created by Jonathan Larson the playwright best known of course for struggling to kind of get his breakthrough seen and heard and wondering if he made the so so yeah so it's it's going to be exciting I think I mean under Garfield you have to say I was like what's happening why is this happening but thought I could get him on the show and it worked so but he's also of course it's been a couple of as with this as well yes we we like Andrew Garfield I'm familiar with the work of there's nothing nickname linney money anyway he's going to be in his dark materials than you series which starts you spoke to make a great TV show I think we've been more space to kind of play with the format indeed I'm okay we'll actually be involved in a Special focus called his darker from adware stripped while they're both from the street but yeah we're going to go week by week and discuss a podcast where I will be going week by week through his dark materials how were where's my invitation last basically would you like to come on you're very lucky I can tell in like we're doing film news herald just talking about what you staying in this spare time Philo say this maybe the quality threshold isn't quite there in terms of evaluating his scripts he we I think it it sounds it recalls oversee westworld and it also makes really makes me think of is that community episode where Abed Start Studying Nicholas Cage you remember that today because you know it just felt like that kind of a day and also because I saw Sharon cancer last week movies she did one the songs from burlesque she did all the hits except I'm back time and they had a big visual behind her of battleship you know it was just perfect and she did it with a video clip it was in Nicholas Cage Zoo yes not not may nine so I don't know is the answer I love monkeys amazing I love how much he just goes a reboot of pirates of the Caribbean maybe GonNa Take Dark Documentari- sir can hey sir I want to make that clear given the James isn't hairs a blather on about nation breathes sheer so we'll want to buy our tickets for that because Tequila mockingbird is great and he's great so are which is kind of interesting there's a weird lack of this January first he stopped the making comic book movies there was there was a claim from Todd Phillips that Schnatter because the joker sport a special is finally up it action might have been a good thing because that would have made it other alive another Ah shut it down now anyway it's up there and is really interesting is the Tulsa Ah we have right in front of us because I was in that chair it mere minutes before you walked ask CBS Jab Jab J.J. Abrams j.j Abrams Soon Ah Daniels assigned to Kobe will be giving away in gold naturally of that special which will be up next week and I have to figure that out because we don't tend to be competition to the PODCAST and Kazeem isn't sale now and we're very very excited about why it's then I ended up reading the whole thing isn't it yeah it was good but it's a preview issue so radio we've got well well well well we have the first word erectile dysfunction well gentlemen surprising but it's an interesting direction for the series to take in but I don't know if it's too late for the people who hand up Pulitzer's to Sir that then we have also thank you oh last night in Soho certain what's the basic story and in this month's issue you will find out Louis so that's in there as well there's tons of great stuff inside the issue Greta Gerwig this they should do a facial expression because then I'm not embargoed ailing smile is reaching the is the smile thumbs up two thumbs up now they're being waived around we've owned a jumping the gun slightly and it sounds amazing women sounds amazing so Mike says she there it when he says she there he means Greta Gerwig Elisa handsome people in the issue I mean we've mentioned quite a lot of handsome and beautiful people so far but you're right my picture story so there's quite a lot of quite hot people in there yes we do Jay Hawk and Richard Linklater so many no no but he opened up the archives and shows as never before seen photographs in the spoilers with empire this month and the reason that they also got their own preview and I'm sure that's very nice and everything no I have not written a piece for pilot you haven't been officially invited I'm sure I just haven't checked Colin all good and evil needs agents and wherever it is you get your digital stuff digital news studio head recotor subject of the kid stays in the I guess is the way it goes sometimes but yeah he he was an astonishing figure in Hollywood kind of started as an actor and he got some pretty minor roles for he produced films like the detective paint your wagon Rosemary's baby the great gatsby any beautiful women yes he'd seven ex wives paramount and he he oversaw the Godfather and tales of his you as well I think reputation and after that he produced like Chinatown as `and alike and he was the life and soul of the Party and he was influential and response him and he and he knew him on they spoke very highly of him and his impact and best this week let's do it and if I look at the guest Tombola I see that there's only one name in there uh-huh I believe after that but Shanley girl really is there one theory it's one of my favorite my sister's favorite film film it's a good film when don't think she's been anything that was Alan Thicke also Felicity Jones was in there you can the theory of everything that's where she first appeared alongside Eddie read main wars and they it sounds. NFL Miss Out Monday we'll be talking about it in the Review Section starts by Tom Harper good my car crash but here we go those Jones she's awesome inferiors awesome enjoyed oh good no big fan of empires stay happy to be back on you a big fan of podcasts you have do I actually get hold of a podcast because every time someone's eight this is a great class and I say how does love type in empire so we're still at the airports I what I loved about the film is that it is set in you know in the post just so caring about their survival and your Amelia Ren tell us Amelia rent so rinat she was a French aeronautic and she was one of the first woman to fly solo and she used to this show on the person exactly that that came from the Blanchard or it out and and sell tickets and so the beginning of the film that's Amelia's doing UC's had you ever been in a hot air balloon no I never before and it was one of those things I always yeah and then the landings are Harry you never get the scent of course you as beautiful than airy us is very peaceful it's not like a hot air balloon where you have that the sound of the of bottlers champagne and you'll have a nice glass champagne when you're up there really lovely but then nothing prepares you for it you kind of just I mean the pilot shouts hold on and you just hold challenges well it's one of the most grueling parts of ever had and and but that was sort of where I got the appetite really for doing another action film was from playing yeah so your pets with red again after theory everything when here I think you do I think you you cut out all the polite stuff in you don't tiptoe during theory of everything we then felt like he was safe with each other and that we it was it was it was interesting in the way Erin which was very is to each other films but they're both about exploring extremes how would you talk about Oh you know you just have to smoke fast yeah and when you're on set so we always have a good old sort of gossip and character one thing I thought was refreshing about the film in any way a romantic relationship one point you might not see it okay in in the film but I think there is a I think lost but I'm softy I hope that they do get together eventually the end the ball skit when they take off and because there was throughout sheeting did it just didn't feel right thank the case kept going in and out apparently of it a woman kind of finding away in society that's melt dominated is is very and I think that interestingly is coming from men and women that list is to do what she loves doing she is having to reject a lot of war onto sitting in this little drawing room environment and you realize what it has taken in the beginning of your career when you started what is your kind of experiences thing that I do overnight so it was a real struggle years I used to hate it and sometimes you'd get sent I just thought you know what I'm GonNa Learn to scenes in London as best they can I think there's a lot of just being terribly embarrassed being an actor and you have to you have as she was in this witch prison you just feel like an lucky that casting directors took a punt on me they're the people who you know I think so actually and it's it's it's a strange thing because when you know for certain things you don't have now what you're GonNa do a little bit and actually does give you a lot of confidence you definitely axes coming -CREMENTO isn't it is but it's interesting I feel that you take go from eighteen and we'd sort of talk about it's about something popping and it Morrissey over the decisions that you're making so but in the Eilly days you're just trying anything who filmed the extension let's just wanted can you make a small I think you should have you can sometimes get a little bit too disc's though I think the more you can the more the older you get the more you extend bogus in some ways view star wars reinvention was net was being I looked at the end of that scale but not the right part and so do something of that of that scale because at the same time doing things on that size it helps you I guess since the foam come out the stories about how the director was replaced there was that just you know the enormous is so many people involved they aw on we were able to make it all mace like like an independent film DNA is I think what makes the foam so wonderful yeah uh-huh yeah it's sort of funny to think about that side bintu conventions and it's always thrilling I mean star was is a religion that so you so whenever I have been involved in those events where would you go to Charlotte that's always on TV time making something it's actually rub it was called to come having digging it was setting off Cher was in Australia it was yes we we shot it theories are in San Antonio well I thought when I went back a year like I was trying to ice skate or something I couldn't stand up for more than two seconds I kept before but I've seen you visit to inferno straight by that no my call I remember running around we've running around flagging that's the the hills know exactly exactly why willingly sky funding shooting night in January okay can we think about yeah it's going to be amazing directing it and we'll say starring in it and an EMT and Should we talk about the aeronautics I haven't seen it yet individually or together and this is an interesting bit of history so you make informed predictions about what the weather might be like and so he's trying to convince the scientific community that uh-huh you know eight thousand meters above the ground kind of thing and that's the setup so she has obviously dealing with this desperate need to prove himself improve his theories on the film flooring basically and kind of pioneering and they have to deal with various problems mostly a two flashback to walk them they're almost all of those things are a bit boring to the kind of the excitement of the hot air balloon and I can understand why they did it because you know it's birds but that's about it so there there's not enough there to feel like they they have a film you will find that red means character was well over fifty and already president of white three I feel like the real person maybe could have done with it's not like it's a composite character that you can turn into women it's a specific but Anyway so I wasn't I wasn't a huge fan but I do and he thought it was well nice and gave it four stars I mean is well Nice I will give him today on. Netflix has been out inverness around the country in select cinemas for the last couple of weeks as let me completely by surprise I thought it was out in November so dominant is my name which is and he certainly been doing the rounds for its and he's been back on the interview circuit for the first time eight of build up of a release then just kind of what's out here you go here you go and how he ended up making a series of blaxploitation flicks really really good at slightly absurd bio-pics man in the the basic setup I've said to ready is fantastic very very funny yeah what did you I his bones and and it felt like I could see the the influence of of really nought without a bit of bite to it just in the sense of a group a little bit slow paced I will say I think not so that rushes into its story fi is there cinematographer Golden Mikey he can Michael Kay my God really really good people everybody should come on his first year rated good luck to you if you knew that came out because it was again it was hey guys churches out before last if you have to go back and just going to quickly look at Eddie Murphy which I've somehow managed Bus Let me see so DOLEMITE has been Mr Church three years before Latte then he it was also kind of dumped a little bit yeah a little bit although it's quite charming and the point is not two thousand seventeen point is he hasn't been a lot of films recent years right now an also an ethics right now is the king yes so this is kind of the Henry the it was factual and put in some made up so it's a little bit of a mixed bag this he

Felicity Jones

"The. Onto as additional of happy said confuse Felicity Jones from Star Wars to a supreme court Justice in our new film on the basis of sex. Hey, guys, I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another addition of happy sake and fused, as I said, today's guest, the fantastically talented, Felicity Jones, you know, of course, Oscar-nominated role in the theory of everything and her leading role in Star Wars. Rogue one was rogue one a Star Wars story if I'm getting the official title down, whatever it was called. It was an amazing movie. She was fantastic in it. She's always just a stellar performer. And she once again quiz herself very well playing none other than the Torius Rb G Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her new film on the basis of sex. A very entertaining film from director Mimi leader that is it's a bio pic of sorts. It's not repeat against is higher life. It's more about. Her early days going to wa- school coming into her own a very key a court case that she was involved with alongside her husband played by another happy second veteran, Mr. Armie hammer. They're both fantastic in the film recommend this one. It is out in theaters, and it's a special project because you know, we're living in crazy times. And to celebrate the likes of supreme court Justice Ginsburg is is a worthy worthy thing to do. I had a chance to talk to Felicity the day after her New York premiere on the basis of sex, and I have to say it was one of the more special premieres. I've been to in the audience was Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton and Justice Ginsburg herself who stayed for a human a after the film made for a very heightened kind of atmosphere for that premier. But I'm glad I I'm glad I was there. I saw the movie period. But I'm glad I was there that particular night just won't give you some context because we do mentioned her mixing it up with the likes of those luminaries the night before Felicity is just fantastic. She's she's, you know, always very open, and sweet and thoughtful and funny and all the good things, and I'm always happy to see her, and we've never had this kind of a long phone conversation. So. A real thrilled to have her on the podcast. This is of course, our first happy confused, the twenty nine hundred and I hope you guys had a great new year celebration. I'm actually taping this right before the new year. So I'm hoping I had a good near celebration to we can only hope for the best of. But I want to take this opportunity. Look back a little bit at twenty eighteen in film, shockingly, I still I still haven't finalized my top ten list. I'm so damn behind on this guys. It always like stresses me out. I had to vote in like one organization on the part of. So I kind of gave my top five I had to give then, but it's changing every day, and I'm still catching up on films in particular. I have not seen nearly enough of the great foreign films that were released in twenty eighteen. So this list is going to change. But if you're looking for a Josh Horowitz, top tennis kind of list, I'm gonna recite for you things are actually fourteen movies. This is my top fourteen fourteen movies that I really loved in twenty eighteen I'm just. Going to go to you and affable order with as little commentary as possible. But if you share my taste, if you feel like you've ibe with what I like the movies that I loved in twenty eighteen. We're going to be again with everyone's favorite star is born beautiful love story. Very effective. Bradley Cooper kills it in front of and behind the camp behind the camera. Black klansman spike Lee's best films, period, certainly one of his best in many years in a couple times. Fantastic. Can you ever forgive me? I've talked about this movie a bunch on the podcast. We had Richard E grant on absolutely door this movie set nineties New York, directed by Mary Heller, most McCarthy gives a performance like she's never given before just a great slice of life of about New York characters that doored the favorite your this anthem os's latest, really dark comedy, fantastic performances. Livia Coleman ritual vices so good in this, Emma? Stone nNcholas Holtz. Our old, buddy. Fantastic loved it. I man. Great filmmaking great craft Damian Chazelle knocks out of the park. Again. I reformed a haunting intense film, featuring stellar performance from Ethan Hawke directed by the one and only Paul Schrader game night not enough people who've given love to game night. Maybe my favorite like out and out comedy of the year. Really great filmmaking to usually in comedies. You. Don't see like. They kind of actually go the lazy route and comedies and terms of from a filmmaking standpoint game night is great Jesse Plemmons for the win for supporting a performance. Green. Book loved green book the leading performances from Vigo Mortenson Herschel, Ali fantastic. Just a real heart warming story leaves you. We've theater feeling great. And it's a really enjoyed it on the other side of the spectrum is hereditary, probably the most disturbing film of the year great horror film from young filmmaker featuring an amazing performance from Toni Collette mission impossible fallout. Maybe the best franchise going nowadays is what Chris Macari and Tom Cruise is doing with the mission impossible series. They raise the bar yet again in this one just pure great popcorn entertainment, Roma from Alphonso Cologne. Impeccable filmmaking emotional it will hit you in the heart by the end of this film. It is sublime I highly recommend it. And it's on Netflix. If you can't get out to theater, just check it out and the comfort of your own home Spiderman into the spider verse what thrilling animation. What's a new take on the Spiderman story that we haven't seen before a true comic? Book lover's dream spider man's spider versus fantastic vice of talking on the last podcast to Adam McKay adore vice. It is very funny. Disturbing and says a lot about the time. That we're living in and finally you were never really hear a film that you may not have heard of God a little attention earlier in the year. It should have gotten more from win Ramsey. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, kind of a taxi driver for our times. One of the best of twenty teen without a doubt.

Let me know what you think hit me up on Twitter, Joshua Horowitz and tell me if you agree or disagree. In the meantime, remember review rain subscribed to happy second. Fuse spread the good word and enjoy this conversation with the star of on the basis of sex member. Check it out in theaters now miss Felicity. Nice to be here. It's full of discount. Tell you how nice this venue office try to create by we I mean me and my as you can see so many staff members here personalities huge team. Yeah. Chef you know, it's something that's all start. I feel like in the publicity game eight does. Yeah. Just kind of get back to basics, and it's nice being in such a such a my physical space window with space as she lovely to be around by movie posters because that's what it does get rather abstracts when the talking about film law, you have to remind yourself how much you do love. And you don't just talk about them about one film film until you enjoy lots of does the person talking to do you really like movies or do you like just holding a microphone? What's the slits the truth here? The passion of the movies is the thing that brings me that brings me here today. Without a doubt. Yeah. I I actually it's one of my favorite things to do on on a press tour is to as much as possible if I have downtime just put on a movie, even if I only watch fifteen minutes just to engage with another narrative, and and it's it's the ultimate relaxing to do. And it takes you mind off your own dreadful solipsism and south hatred. Always love cinema watching lately have you caught up are union. The screener season. Yeah. I'm in the midst of it. I am. I mean, the favor is just fantastic. I. Yeah. Beautiful. So he's just such a fabulous taste and everything. And I just I absolutely loved it loved it. So we saw each other very briefly at your Suare last night. Congratulations on the movie on the basis of sexes. Of course. The new one I feel like you had you know, if I wasn't gonna come away loving movie last night, then something was wrong because I was sitting three rows behind Hillary Clinton three rows ahead of Gloria Steinem RV was to my right. It was like you guys stack today. I get it isn't how women that special. It's amazing. Did you get spend some quality time with with MS Clinton? Did I did we own met each other before we went into the screening? And it was a really awesome moment where I was in. I was in a huddle, I was in a puddle with Justice Ginsburg, Hillary Clinton and Gloria Steinem, and if there's one thing that will take away from making this film is that moment that will be indelibly bunt onto my heart and my retinas produce special. Yeah. That doesn't go with film. You've had a few of these. Now, you could probably count theory of everything of one of those kind of special things where it's telling very important Yuning story on this one. I mean Rb g Justice Ginsburg whenever we call her the icon. That is it's it does. It's the cliche. It's feels like it's the right time for the story. But it really does feel like. You know that room, and I feel any room that's gonna see this film. It's ready to celebrate what she's contributed and cellini. I mean, did you come away? You must have come away with even a greater appreciation for going to experience without a doubt. That don't. I mean, it was definitely fracking initially paying such an icon and someone as say deeply loved and deeply respected and rightly so even when I was with her last night, we had dinner together. I just I can't help but be overwhelmed and moved by who she is an how she's managed to to navigate her way to a position of power with absolute, integrity, keeping hustle and has self intact. And she's you know, she's continually being in positions of an injustice, and you know, she was in a welder. No one really wanted to be that they can't looking around being my what are you still doing? Hey, you know, this isn't fu- you should be in the kitchen go with. And she she remained and stayed and fold and manage to very carefully and in a very sophisticated way that kept a sense of unity and kept everyone own side. She managed to to change the system and this note, many people who've been able to do that in history. So yes, so looking at those night, I just thought how so lucky to have someone that you in Powell with principals intact, looking up the film and can get the script. I mean, we're you something's must still resonate in terms of these kind of like, micro aggression, small things that still exists to this day. I mean, I feel like if anyone that I talked to probably has been told to smile a little bit more. Yeah. Resonates with you with anybody? I think you will. Yeah. The OT you're tapping into it. It's because I've been thinking about this. And I think what it is is just that slight pressure to be pleasing. I think that something that whistle was still wrestling with a little bit. But actually do more than ever I feel like it is it is it is time to shine with the forces of history, and where they all. It is we're in a time now where we can have a total equality where we can all rise together. And that's ultimately, what the film is about is that one doesn't have to rise to the detriment of another when we worked together as Monte in Reese, did look look what we can do. And look what what change we can affect. And I now feel in this place where where the world has changed, and we all equals and. And that has to be embraced on every level. But it has been interesting screening the film and seeing in the world, and and and some people I think do you find it difficult when they see the foam, and they sort of they find something a little bit. Almost they don't know how to take it that the story ends with a woman triumphing alongside her husband with that relationship fully intact. And she lives at the end. Process isn't how it's supposed to go down in film his chain. It's it's it is no poll so that has been actually fascinating. But that that is the that's why will say passionate about this pudding that story into the world. It's a hardening film. I think it's going to. Like the same way people were like the world needs Mary Poppins right now. We're also needs a true story. Like this a true hero like this. Where like, I think of Justice Ginsburg said McEwen last night. She was putting her late husband saying, I think that like histories like pendulum this gale. Because you know, as we all know these have been pretty rough times last couple years, and if there is a silver lining. It is. I've talked about this on the podcast before like the day after the election. I was always kind of a liberal and politically active, but like I felt myself kind of like feeling like I had to raise my voice. I feel like many people were feeling that way. And if there is some good to come of these really scary times that. Necessary actions taking place. Absolutely, the if you raise your voice, you can be heard and change can happen. And that's what that's what Justice Ginsburg as without a doubt shown us. I absolutely. I think I think the film gives people such great hope that that you the status quo can be shifted, and you can't fight against that. And how important it is with their money to speeches talks on the film about like it's been like this forever. It's been like this for hundreds of years. Why even talk about it? Well, it doesn't change unless we talk. And then when we change the law. It's like, it's only it only happens if we address it exactly end the conversation, you know, the conversation to start and then you shift things without without don's. What was what was the first time Rian the audience the first time that she was there that she saw the film? I saw the first time I saw it with Justice Ginsburg. It was even interesting saying Justice Ginsburg, I know so well as. So I often move between the two, but we all watched it in Washington together, which was. It was just been a fascinating experience. And it was a very very emotional experience for me, and I were in tears. The director. Yeah. Mimi leader, who's done a phenomenal job of of making the story completely human and completely accessible and understanding who Justice Ginsburg as as a as a human being, you know, all the all the trials and tribulations and not backs. The everyone has to know that she's had those two it's really interesting helpful when you when you look at her now, and and see the position that she's got to. But, but it was just it was very special to see the joy on her face on the on the love that she has for the foam because if one person that you about liking it, it's all the other of us you kinda less while the than than than host. I'm approve you touched on a little bit. But the relationship between her and Marty her husband relate husband is so sweet. And he was clearly. Just a true partner in every way to that must've been emotional for her to see that as as army did definitely. Well, the first time they they screened the film Daniels from nephew who wrote the screenplay. He tells the story that I'm just Justice skins bug bust out of the room the film had finished and she walks out of the screening room, and everyone was nervously waiting and then and then Daniel ton to his his mother. His sister said why is she gone said, oh, she's gone to the bathroom. But it was an she came back, and she said how much she should love the foam. But what was interesting is pops. How move should been to see the foam and be reminded oversee of of husband late husband. And that it was interesting when I went to our appointment, and we had we had coffee together. And she was showing me various things Maltese pots and pans. That's still in the kitchen. They don't get used so much now because. Is a terrible cook. But I'm Monchy showed me pictures of Ramadi and just in everyone the love and respect and the and the just being on the same team. And how you know how if? Yeah. Yeah. We don't get many examples of that. A bit of a different vibe. I'm sure then the rogue one press tour. You don't have a Wiki with you. But you have six foot nine army hat along. Justice ginsburg. I would say has the force in hunt. And you can think of and you'd say who has the fullest. It would be wouldn't it? But it's had Diego in recently. Is that something that has changed your perspective on sort of the way? I mean, look it was going amazingly. Well theory of everything that happened at kicked it up to another notch. And you were getting great opportunities. But in the year, plus even know how many years it's been now. But since rogue one do feel like it has it changed more of your professional life where personal life just being like recognized by kids. Now, I think I think definitely professional life. I mean, the the puzzle the puzzle life is I mean, that's we'll mice without cheesy. But when you do have young boys and girls coming up to you at that is something very special in that. 'cause you go you all the future. If you care about these foams, do you have strong strong role models in them, then the world hatefully will continue to hopefully be be a bit of a better place. But I think professionally definitely, you know, have being in a film that has that that wide reach and and that affection for it globally. It definitely gives you more more say in the stories that you tanning in an all to me. That's what I was so passionate about I mean, as you all done that so much of why we do what we do. It's the stories that we put out into the wall that we care about say behind have more control in that is. Yeah is opposite blessing. Did you guys a lot during that press store and your fabulous actor? So I don't know how much you were able to mask it at the time. Like, did you Zayed's before the film came out because as you know? I put this out there. The movies amazing. It turned out amazing. Also, kind of a miracle that it did give all the buzz around at the time. Oh, here we go. This is going to be the one that ruins the track record was that affecting you where you like I'm going to be the face of the Star Wars film, that fails never know. That's what is fascinating. I mean, that's why I think keeps us in the game. How something's going to turn out to even you know, you have the most while respect respected director, and these people, and it can still be a pile of. You never ever know until it hits the screens and do the ultimate do the audience wanted to see this. Do they care about his narratives? I mean oversee when it does click it. It is pretty fantastic. What are you excited for your buddy Diego too? Definitely definitely. And we had we had a really really special time on that foam. You know, as it's on the scale like no other when you walk onto say, and there's about three hundred people it is a pretty tremendous. So yeah, it's it's fantastic to keep celebrating it and special stories, and I'm Cathy Kennedy is really pushed women in the in the scifi universe. You know, was he that is a there is a legacy. I mean coming from films alien, and to be able to continue that was pretty awesome. Let's let's go back for a little bit since we were in my little movie mecca, and we're just getting out here. A little bit growing up more you into what was we're on your walls. What was your passion? Well, it was definitely the the pinnacle of the nineteenth blockbuster. Which we are very similar ages. So we had to. Carnesi? So we would go out my mom would drive us in tiny tiny call. My brother night be squashed in the back, and we drive to favorite cinema, which was about an hour away from from where we live because she liked this particular cinema because of the quality of the of the sound. Yeah. That's the kind of detail that I am. There's not Dolby surround here. It's going to be another half hour, but we're going to make the trip. Okay. Felicity. That's good. To finish file sets the ball high. She exposing you to every kind of a movie or yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I mean, we would this particular multiplex. We were saying the Addams family was. Favor family values. Underrated. Good. I admire that commitment. And then obviously all the well that sprang vent and the MC hammer attract, but then my brother, and I went to imitate the Danzig t really badly. You know, the chicken, Don. Those that want wonder I just saw Felicity do the. Down. I read something some random thing you've been a reference not in the film. We're blowback films at a second. You mentioned something that I've not fought of for about twenty five thirty years Sylvania and fans canton. I remember the commercials. Remember the commercials for me. It's funny. How you broke out so much of your child. Because it's really was like it was a moment. When you mentioned in another interview, it was like, why do we know that what that is? Oh my God. I know that jingle I know that jingle, but you actually played with the toys I ever did. Did you into the into the gym? There was a school associated with the way they had. The Silvagni school is this cinematic university on my goodness. This is the future. Bring vania. Next protect this could be. The little outfit. It's very beyond us there. You are basically young young lady that show of picking up. The dole was particularly scary. Yeah. That little mice owning. That was the tiny crib? You put them in a tiny. Crib. To collect. Amazing. So you play with your little summating family and create little your own little narratives still scenarios in the Soviet Union. Windmill is well that was each of ending was always so Vania call that might have been something else. I was more to transport. So when did you start to get serious about the acting because you've been acting basically your entire life? It seems I started when I was about ten years old, but came very much a Hopi, my parents at she. They heard that I was very shy and always very suit of reserved, and they how can we bring out with us out? So they they looked at various Detroit clubs and things like that. And then I thought it was I have not sure about this. And I went to a great drama group called the central gene television workshop and I had an audition for that. And in the moment, I actually got into the room. You know, I've been a little bit hesitant at first. I just thought I felt like I'd come home. It was really old feeding at such a young age ten years old. I thought these people. Yeah. I think importantly, probably being a bit in some ways, but of an outside to school, and and not kind of finding you'll be or your track and Fenian little at odds. And then suddenly, I came drama club. And we will just such goofs is giving around just love to. So how would you doing a young teach year old to fourteen year old like in the acting game where you like providing for the family where you like, I don't I have no sense of like. See the early like credits, and I'm like with all due respect didn't enter my world. Maybe if I was growing up in Britain. Maybe I would have no he wasn't a kind of it wasn't sort of that full night for me. It was very much just something that I did in my school holidays. And and I always I always wanted a bit of a balance between I did a TV series the worst which when I was about twelve or thirteen and then I was going to go onto the second series on. I remember I was desperate to go on family holiday. We all used to go away with my cousins, and my aunts and uncles, and I was so sad. The thought missing the family holiday that. I decided that I didn't want to go back into a second second. I. I I. News vice family everything your sanity for third season CV show. No one will ever remember, exactly. So I thought instead I'm going to go on the holiday, and I'm going to go back, and I was just thinking about that the other day. And I think he I wonder what that was about. And I think it was all too many about which doesn't sound very jazzy in cool. But it's about violence we come back to the scales. Scales? Justice Ginsburg is maybe that healthy happy way is is the equilibrium. Do you have that sense to this day where you're like I've been working too much like an I need to kind of like preserve. Denying or do you feel like now, you kind of have the natural rhythms? And you know, how to protect yourself and protect your Saturday. And I think so I mean, everyone we will have that battle like keeping identity you want. The you want them to be in Khomeini, you kind of want them to feed into each other. And and Hanis won enough. I think ultimately so so going back to the time line. What's the for you? Remember, the first time that you were working with like actors that you truly revere like an another generation of actor that felt like this is like I'm surrounded by important, folks. And having an having that sense of I think, I think initially the first person I was really taken with. Actually on. I did a thing with the tragedy and the diver it was a female Directa. Cool. Juliette? May I think that's the first time. I saw too was going. Oh, wow. This is really special because it was the first time I saw a woman in that position which I hadn't hadn't come across before. So I feel. It was that was definitely my kind of like oh goodness. This is interesting. Moment. And then oversea along the way you can't help you do become you absorb much. I think from the people that you work with particularly and continue to do. So actually at indefinitely walking with Helen Mirren was a moment I've seen someone who's just cool. The tempest. Yeah. And she was just cool onset, and she didn't Dimona of attention. And she was meticulous in front of the camera. And that she said a bit of a gold standard for me from from. Then not that I was like going around being early publicity. Wait around to Kane. Go away. Did you end of that appear group of actors that you kind of feel like you kinda came of age with its definition. Yeah. I remember doing good. I was going to make this film, which was an improvised film in England. Which was a love story set in the second World War and and. And we were doing dishes for the male role. And that time it was the people who came in. Eddie red Maine was the first puzzle additioning, and then it was Andrew Garfield. And then it was Thome Hodie. Wow. Wow. I know of our school of. Yeah. Coming up in school of active as the different approaches because. Tom hardy one I'm going to be honest. On the other to Tom's a unique character. So have you worked with the end up in that film with you didn't tell them, and I as she worked together we did a TV series called. Didn't make it to the second season cooled cool Cape wrath say that was yeah. That was the we didn't make that film together. But then we did this TV show together. Yeah. He's he's very believable had such different approaches. I mean interesting. So I the first time I think I probably many became at where you was like crazy was the drift Ramos to projects. I guess you've worked with Drake on. That made quite a splash Sundance as I recall was that is that an indelible memory of being at Sundance with Drake. Anton for that. Yeah. Definitely. I just remember laughing my head off all the time with as t I think he did one interview where they pretended to be brothers. What what's my role in? This improv sketch. I think that point where you know, you've been talking about the film days on slightly lose your head. And then they were just kind of going off on it, but of Dandan, but that was cheated to make you the film. It was. I know you've talked about that a lot. But it was it was it was their script for that. Or was it? No, it was just been making a film in England called shell ako, which was a romantic comedy, and was also much of the performance in that film is about timing, and you have to be on the beat to make the job work, and that sort of thing, and then and then I went into like crazy, which was the opposite lit she'd touchdown in Los Angeles. And I was making this improvised film with Drake. And I with the same age at the same. The time we were making it and it felt the three of us. We felt like these pioneers we were really enroll whether we're making it. Exactly. And that and then was there were no sort of. He didn't have to hate your mall or any of that stuff. It was very kind of free form and pretty formative experience. I'm going to be on dancing on the there's a documentary about antone. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. Conway to see. Yeah. Yeah. He's still tremendous act. Yeah. Unpack each full passan. So in the wake of that. I. I think we can jump ahead. Of course is something like theory of everything, but I'm curious like before that if you felt like, you know, the, quote, unquote, like big breaks, whatever the big markers and a career because I was going back. And I was reminded that like you had one that actually almost happened that might have changed things a little more prematurely, which was the Warren Beatty project. Yes. Yeah. You were attached to that. Yeah. I worked with Warne on that film about ta I was going to say so. Obviously being filmed get like like, you can tell him. I actually had worn for the podcast, which was an amazing. I can only imagine hours you spent days you spent with Warren. He does not just castle, buddy. He's you're in his life. And it was it was actually fascinating. Because at one point Eddie had also been going to be in the film, a different time and actually Warren Beatty, he it was a real education spending that time with him. And so much of what we've both learned from him. We took into their everything he was very much sued. His voice was in our heads going into that film because obviously you watch films reds his incredible selection of films, and what he gets his always spontaneity and humanity and fused with with technique contending the story. So it was almost like because I didn't go to drama school. That was almost like a bit of an immersion in the school of. I mean parts of filmmaking really just spending time with them and hanging out with his kids and and being with his obviously with the net. Those conversations about films and filmmaking just live from the go talk craft and talk like also has every story known to man, these like these like the personification of the last hundred years of film. Could possibly. Throughout film history. It was it was very much an education. I mean, obviously working with with the his zone, and he'd always allowed so much from him. So I mean, that's what was that. Was. It was amazing about it getting inside track on days film, heroes and heroines and getting getting to sort of see behind the cut, and I guess. Gets one for whatever reason it can't went through rations, I know to end up happening for you. But when something like theory of everything happens for you, and Eddie are you by that time like you've been in the business you've had films that have probably been said to be this is going to be the one. This is the one that changes. Everything doesn't always happen that way. So like when something like that comes around, and you've got a call filmmaker in amazing story, it seems like on paper it's going to be the right thing. Do you go in optimistic or kind of like are you protecting yourself from disappointment? Yeah. I think I think you have to. I mean, you have to believe in the story. I guess what a heartless should you? Wait a little at your life. And if you look at the future young you can't I mean, you can't really predict that. I think there was something in theory. That was quite powerful is is the when when Stephen by necessity has the screen in front of him and communicates who the screen that was something about that. That was tapping into where we all on out. The actually Stephen hawking was aliens ahead of us all because now we all communicate through screens. And there was something in the Madonna ty- of that in the almost the fusion of the human the machine, which he it which he became at the end of his life, which enabled him oversee to continue to communicate that was sort of predicting where kind of where we are now. That took it into a universal spheres wasn't just in the in the domestic space. Also must have been just a joy to go through that expect kind of crazy world when with something like Eddie good head on his shoulders. Tasty. I mean, he we just push each other. And we've just been walking together with Tom hall PO and the three of us would like maniacs. We just couldn't we couldn't leave the until every every stone was unturned and explode every two ration- of possibility. He broke on the film, as you know, his he he got hurt. But you you came out of it unscathed. I breezed if he ribs. Okay. Okay. We'll kind of a famous was. I was talking to him recently about it 'aeronautics. And I was like it sounds like, oh, it's a lovely go. But a hot air balloon. It's little Ron com. This is like an intense tale. Will will they make it the end of the movie? Yeah, it was. It was definitely a child by five. From now or so probably be back here. Hey fee with all my limbs in time. Well, what you're planning the next. Exactly he knows what can happen. We mocking up stuns. Interview. My wife's begging me she wants to go up in a hot air balloon for years. And like we actually went we were going one time. But as the winds have to be just right? Yeah. It's a perilous experience I can tell. I can tell is are saying, I know a lot of could tell you. So would you recommend now having onto this experience? Should I acquiesce to my wife and go up on a hot air balloon? Or is it too dangerous? Whenever again. Not relying on those winds. That's for sure. Really giving me a great gift exactly state headed to the ground. That's what I'd say something that you and both at share which is meticulousness like a real kind of like, you said not leaving any stone unturned has always been the case is that just sort of like, that's that's your method. That's what gives you. Joy in a weird way. Hatred. You're welcome. Exactly. I mean, how are you going to do? I don't trust the people that are satisfied with them selves. Doubted anyone get anywhere really loving. Kids out there. Just accept the hatred yourself and move on. We're all fucked up. Embrace it. I mean, I think I mean, you probably empathize. It sort of perfectionism, isn't it ultimately? And now and how to harness that in in the health. It's way possible, which is which is a trial in itself. Is there fear involved at this point? I mean is there one of those questions, but but I and ask it, but I'm curious like do have fear going into a job is part and parcel that I really liked fair. And I didn't know that about myself, and then increasing thinking, wow, somehow, that's that's that seems to be increasingly important to me. I gotta think it's remember when I was younger used to really enjoy throwing myself off very very high diving board. We're not talking about a force. That was go and you're like, no. The suit of literal is than staggering into the full. Yeah. And so definitely I'm starting to realize I get a bit of a thrill. I got it. I mean, relating to like my my job like I've done a lot of like live stuff over the years. And I'm always like having done this a long time. You would think of this point. It's like piece of cake never. I'm always the jitters right before and at the same time as you were saying it's like, it's kind of an adrenaline rush. It's a high. It's like it's you want to be kind of right on that edge. Fear and excitement. Exactly. I was going to say what is it? I guess is the unknown. Isn't it knowing that it could go to hell and makes it more satisfying? When it doesn't at city the acidy, you'll kind of just throwing us out in out that. I guess maybe so much of your life. You kind of fooling yourself into thinking that you can control everything. And ultimately, we know we can't. And so to make that situation. A reality is somehow madly inspiring. So in the wake of especially the last few years in the wake of like theory in the wake of rogue one has been more challenge immu of more choice than ever right now. You actually have choices in actor where like early career as you. Well know, it's sort of like, you'll hire me great like the next gig has that been liberating or also daunting and away and kind of like you can s you're the course of your career to a degree. I think I think two degree, you know, I'm sort of noting. Yeah. Yeah. Still exactly doing idea. What do you don't have to? You. Don't feel like you have choices among roles now. I think I mean, I think always you've got to exercise a little bit of choice. Even when you'll mean for the most part, you you're trying to pay the rent as much as you can I feel like he kind of. I mean, I find ultimate each stuff that you you have tried to put in and the. And the hatefully kind of lines with with your view your worldview. But I, yeah, definitely I think I think you get to have a bit more of a wide to perspective and a bit more context. So that you get to you're not just looking the role is a part of that. Also, you're looking at what is this film saying in the world? And definitely having more of us end. That is is ready exciting, which speaks to the film were here. Yeah. Yeah. I mean at the same time you're talking about someone like Warren Beatty. It's like there's certain actors that have lived their life on like what they've said no to and like making themselves a little bit scarce, not the worst thing in the world. I guess I mean, there are different ways. This cat. Samuel jackson. He'll do six movies year. Three of them are great and three of them. We're gonna go direct to DVD. And that's okay. I think it's how you like to live your life as well. Alternate, isn't it? But it does it seem as you say seem there's no rhyme or reason no one has the perfect formula. That's here today to come up with the perfect and you failed. Chidren's again done really good things you've probably about the sylvian families. And you've ensure that I'm not going to die in a hot air balloon. Insuring that your life. Podcast. What is what's next gig shooting? Well, well is coming out next year. And then I'm just reading and Vicky at various things, and and finding that thing that that makes you go. I'm going to be really scared. I have to do this. If I don't do this. Then we'll have live my life. Have you ever done here in New York? I haven't but I'm down to definitely I mean theater is always come a bit grandiose always come back to the. I mean, it is an awful. Enjoyed thousands of years. But you do it does kind of prepare you for anything. Even in terms of press often, you news to the same thing and deity gives you the key to unlock that. Because that's what you doing it. So I I'm looking to come back to that in the right play in the right circumstances. Yeah. Without a doubt. Because you've been in New York for a second. You had a chance to see anything. NFL, Tori, you're doing like, the Cuna is like crazy. I am. I'm wait to actually be an audience member. And just. Yeah. Just to go whenever I kind of finish eating. I just try and go absorb as much as possible. So I'm desperate. See Hamilton, whichever. One says that despite the hype is still as good. Yeah. So yeah, who've been see that having we're having my husband a couple of days, Neil, just chilling and go and see things. So there's apparently the new judge Butterworth player. Here's amazing. Very excellent. Yeah. I'm seeing network tomorrow on that. That was the thing. Yeah. That's fabulous reviews. Very interesting three von them. Yeah. I saw him. Do what is the crucible a couple years ago? It was interesting exciting. Yeah. And that story's really pertinent for now is I've always and that's a classic. That's a perfect fill guess again when everything. Yes. And this time it's going to be all the more special. We mentioned the favorite. What do you get inspired by certain actors, are there certain actors on your list that you always need to sort of see what they're up to. Well, I mean, I always come back tomorrow street, I watched complicated on the plane again, I think about the fifty million time how does that would maters films like the perfect like air point? I don't mean that as a dig. It's all great on the airplane comfort food, something this something in why noth- that fusion between humor and drama that some of my fate well cinema history of cinema, some of my favorite films filmmakers do that. And oversee mouth Streep always get sought culminate. She makes it so easy. I totally agree again, we're kind of roughly same age. So like, I was thinking like the James L Brooks movies broadcast news like that. They just I mean again, I like it will they don't make them like that anymore. But they really it doesn't even like exist. It feels like. And if it does exist, it's sometimes a Sundance kind of thing like. It's getting that combination of entertainment and an ideology. I mean, that's pot. I mean, that's what he did love on the basis of sex is the is that Mimi Dulce. She does involve she does get you kind of is like a sports maybe in some ways. And you this four minutes respect against by gets to change the world. This amazing rebuttal towards the end. You like Mark on the calendar? Like, it's a great moment. As you say, it's kind of it's like, the the punch out moments that you get that great moment this love. I just love the way she directed it. You know, there's a moment where you think she's not going to be able to get up and do it. And she going to issue going to make the touchdown. And then Monte goes to stand up, and then Mimi has great close up of we've played against. But just stop stopping him being like, no, I could do I could get the finish this somehow. That's what I love movies that have a fusion because they're to be entertained and laugh, and and celebrate as as well as hopefully they're being a bit of a takeaway from it. Also. Mimi in here at some point because like her journey is fascinating too. I mean, she somebody that you know, if you look it up like she should clearly should have been directing some more features in the last fifteen twenty years and. She's definitely she's definitely I mean, like Justice Ginsburg they've had to navigate a complex industry that wasn't that wasn't on my side. But she just has such phenomenal experience and a deep understanding of timing, and and storytelling, and it's interesting so many films, you can want you sort of admire the endeavor. But does it keep you engaged from start to finish? And another thing. She those. Well, I mean, it's a good reminder as you said, it's extraordinarily entertaining. I mean, it really is. And it's also just a reminder of of good in the universe and progress that we have in the progress that we still have to strive for in these in these dark communists. No, it really leaves you on a high, which is an important thing. Now, if it can inspire anybody you've done a great thing. Congratulations again. You're welcome here anytime, thanks for stopping by the silly office. I seen talking to you every time. Thank you. And I'll see you anywhere but hot air balloon on the next. Yeah. No way.

"The today on the frame weekend she can sing rock and roll but also mexican folk songs pop standards and even operas. That's sled ronstadt and she's the subject of new documentary. She is an artist and i think she was just restless and unsatisfied to keep repeating what she'd been doing in the best describes it as having to sing the same thing over and over again until it starts to sound like your washing machine plus eddie read main and felicity jones own start in the theory of everything now they're back together riding in a hot air balloon and the new movie the odds of foster amounts of the two of us in moscow scab about the size of the visit of small table and when you're spending three months in set bosca you need you need to get on with the players and we hit a karaoke bar with filmmaker filmmaker justin chon at the frame weekend from the mon broadcast center at k._p._c._c. I'm john horn. We'll be right back. Okay let's do it. This is the frame weekend. I'm john horn soon on this show we talk with creative people about how and why they do what they do and about how their art shaped by the wider world later today a new documentary documenting about linda ronstadt reminds you how much you love her and her voice which seems to have no limit on what it can do but i let a fall film mm festival season vegan question enough into one another so late skull please. I'm judy beauty spos- henry ford the second one into bill the greatest racecar the world's ever seen what i love about nicole downing you <music>. She's a great dancer events on which you had to pick a new name to mark you freedom ferret tumble. My mother always tells me to smile and put on a happy face the. I intend to make my own way in the world. No one makes their own way. We still woman. You'll need to marry well. You are not married well. That's because i'm rich edge last weekend. A few of us from the frame spent labor day covering the forty sixth annual telluride film festival and colorado. We banked a ton of interviews and saw a lot of movies and among them was the nuts it starts felicity jones and eddie read main the last time they made a movie together. It was the stephen hawking story that theory theory of everything. Both of them got oscar nominations and read main one for plane hawking in their new film. They played nineteenth century balloonist. It's red. I need to make studies of. I'm not a coachman for higher. You are the only person who could fly us higher than anyone has ever been. Okay so my first question is do come in together or does one join nuts. I do you like say i'm in. If if you're in pretty good i thought you meant flying to generate. We did come together. In fact we initially initially we always he sent it. Separately read it separately both had a very positive response to it. I think we both he's found though aspects of the character that we jumped out of the two characters and then we had we caught up on the phone and had a chat what about record each other and i think the main thing was in a in a sense was kind of if you all do that seemed to be the overriding conclusion asian because this film is basically vast amount of it is the two of us in a basket about the size of the small table and when you're spending three months instead basket you need to get on with the person that you're with and dumb and also try listen having worked together on theory of everything was to ah trust each other push each other to to make it something new yeah i think it suddenly felt like it suddenly had had a new dimension to it working with someone that you've already worked with before it's what it felt remember early at the african queen and talking about dynamic between these two actors and if there was something sort of old hollywood about reuniting unlike theory of everything there are i don't know compressions. I guess would be a fair way to say so fills me about your character. How much of it is based on a historical person. How much is a composition and when you're thinking about what you can capture from reality. How how much is there available for you. In terms of reference and research well. There was an enormous about enormous amount of resources single person that was <music>. Such a an inspiration for a amelia was <hes>. This woman called safety blanchard who is one of the first woman french one of the first woman to fly solo in. I'm in a gas balloon and she was absolutely crazy and used to do these night flights and throw fireworks out of the balloon basket actually till her death at the and she actually killed herself by throwing fireworks out of the balloon which then set on fire and she fell and hit the rooftops of paris and felt her it does it but it was definitely that dead devil streak. I was just essential for playing amini amazing story about sophie bloodshot as well that she was napoleon's favorite arnott and once she went up in a basket the size of a champagne bucket in a diaphanous gown and just floated over the battlefield just to freak out the the ponant supposedly wounded polian thought they could use gas ebb leans to invade england and she was going to be leading the the patient and what about your character i mean he is somebody buddy who is also historical figure who's trying to figure out meteorology this crazy concept that you can predict the weather in fact he's probably the first person in the world who was thinking think about climate change but how much of his life is based on your character. And how much are you inventing the whole piece. There's a beautiful book called falling upwards which is history of aveling and and what the that was the basis for the film and the film itself is a conflation of all all of these extraordinary true stories together and so james glaciers flight which the film's specifically is based on did happen and glacier was was he was the son of a watchmaker from rather high and his ambition in his drive was something i looked into twenty years younger than he was so we were given a certain there was a certain amount of research and then there was just a freedom to kind of use that as a bounce board rated bounceback spring. It sounds like we're talking with eddie. Read main felicity jones at telluride about their new film the nuts. I wanna ask you explicit about about something. You told me about the other day about a flight you took before production. I think well on the sheeting <hes> we went went up in a gas balloon and we'd been we'd been rehearsing the sequence for some time <hes> but on the day there were a lot of other elements involved and it was a huge helicopter doing a wide short of us taking off in the balloon just after the initial takeoff and we ended up in a situation where the helicopters had got their shot and they sped off and we were still floating in the air balloon and the pilot who was was in the corner told us to throw out the sand because you power the gas balloon three sand so the less weight you have the high you get and he seventy two hundred to us and he said throughout san throughout the san say we julie did exactly what he wanted throughout the sand little some trees some trees as we were about out 'cause he wanted to land the balloon throughout all of the sand and suddenly he said that wasn't actually the right thing to do so we'd been with this is yeah we've been misdirected and then suddenly having thrown all the sound of the balloon we had this incredibly rocky landing and hit the ground find a quiet velocity and almost break my back. I think those is horrendous crunch because we throw all the all the sand out so when we came down to land we did actually crash into trees got caught in the trees and then the bus came smashing there was this horrific crunches <unk> heads smacked against the james glaciers this box that he has nothing and then it was total silence and those are just hopeless to go. I'm not sure i can move so we had to and that was where we thought that was day. One day one of aaron eddie infelicity. Thanks so much for coming in. Thanks having thank you very much. The era nods is going to hit theaters on december six. You can find it on amazon on december twentieth but right now it's among the film's plane at the toronto international film festival and that's where the focus of the film industry went when telluride wrapped up joining me by skype to compare festival notes is kyle kyle buchanan of the new york times hey kyle. It feels like we're to film. Festival ships passing in the middle of the night. I'm returning from telluride and you've just landed at toronto. What's the vibe like there. <hes> i think very eager to see what's going to transpire. You know i mean last year's best picture. Winner green book emerged urged from here kind of a dark horse candidate in a year with really big movies this year going into toronto. <hes> you know which is a festival that often helps clarify terrify the award season. I would say that quentin tarantino's once upon a time in hollywood is still sort of our you know movie to be and we'll have to see if <hes> if some movies come along that can draw more than that. I think one thing that kind of distinguishes toronto from telluride is that there are a lot of kind of bigger studio movies set. Come there including joker the i guess latest origin story about joker played by joaquin phoenix. How would you describe what studios are after for for movies like that that might not be kinda words but probably are looking for a lot of buzz coming out of festivals. Ironically joker was that the venice film festival and they think it is very the awards despite the <hes> you know the comic book trappings <hes> but i but there are often really big and aveer spectaculars that come here for a launch one of those i would say this year is knives out <hes> it's directed by ryan johnson who did the last jedi and it looks like kind of a whodunit a modern spin on agatha. If the christie with an all star cast includes chris evans toni collette daniel craig. I'm excited for that one <hes> but yet by and large it's a lot of you know year end movies that are vying to be a part of the awards conversation because there's about to be such a flood of movies in part because net flicks. You know it's going to take a little bit more to stand out and <hes> <hes> these movies are hoping that they've got the stuff to do it here. I in terms of the award season. Is it really important to get a lot more momentum out of toronto than and maybe you got at venice or tell you right in other words. Is it actually more critical than the other festivals in terms of setting up the awards season yeah in some ways i think toronto toronto is one of the most popular film festivals certainly easier and less expensive to get to than venice or telluride but it's also a you know a festival where the biggest thing that you can get is the audience award and that's something that often just measures not just i guess how conventionally crowd-pleasing a movie is but will people respond to it in whatever way they're meant to respond to it and i think sometimes you know we put a lot of stock in what <hes> what people like you and i think john but it's really important to see what really works on a crowd last year going into that green book premier. Nobody was expecting really anything from that movie if he was playing very late in the festival didn't come in with any particular baas but it played like gangbusters in the room. It was one of those things that you know. Despite it kind of sometimes bumpy oscar campaign i kept returning to because that's the kind of thing where if it can play there it can play with oscar. I think also the festivals are very important in terms of position movies. That might look a little like out liars on paper. I have already had the pleasure of seeing joe joe rabbit which has tyco y._t._d.'s. I think amazing movie about world war two and a young boy who thinks he wants to be a nazi youth. It's a comedy tyco by t._d. Plays the the boys imaginary friend who happens to be adolf hitler is also important that movie's coming toronto as kind of unknown quantities and leave the festival with people talking about them in ways that you really can't until you see them well. I think one of the wonderful things about any film festival is making a discovery you know now and when people ask me what movies are you most excited to see. You know whether i'm going to toronto. Can or sundance sure i've got lists. You know there's there's a lot of movies. I can't wait to see that. I'm super curious about like just mercy with michael jordan and be larson <hes>. I'm excited to see waves which i heard was fantastic at telluride it. It's a movie with <hes>. <hes> lucas hedges calvin harris junior and yeah. I'm curious about films like joker and four versus ferrari but what what i'm most excited about is to make that discovery to find something that i didn't know hardly anything about going into the film festival and then i can shout it from the rooftops. There are some movies that i'm really eager to see that aren't playing at the festivals and that includes little women greta gerwig. 's adaptation of louisa may alcott novel will there are other movies that are oddly missing from the festival scene right now. I wouldn't say that there's a lot of year end movies that will probably pop it a pop about bet af fest in los angeles in november. You know movies that would be somewhat better served by coming out then so the the time between a festival debut in a relaunch isn't quite as big <hes> so yes little women. I'd expect to see it now. Queen slam with daniel columbia will be there air and maybe we'll see a couple things a couple year end entries including hats cats cats. Don't start saying don't do it. I won't do that to your audience. I'm going to ask you about one last film and that is tom. Hanks has fred rogers in a beautiful day in the neighborhood that that is showing at toronto. I believe that also feels like a movie that a lot of people looking for i've heard mixed opinions about it based on some people who've seen it. When does it plan clan toronto <hes> it's playing on saturday night. I'm super curious about a two saturday. Night is a true collision chorus of those big studio movies that could potentially become come even bigger if critics audiences respond to them including knives out a beautiful day in the neighborhood and honestly another movie that i screened before the fast that's playing here and that i think will really pop here and when it comes out later this month which is hustlers <hes> with jennifer lopez and constance wu <hes> it it is just pure fun <hes> but smart with fantastic performances and i don't think jennifer lopez has ever been better. I'm kind of wondering ah we can. Maybe started drumbeat jaylo for best supporting the cow. Buchanan is the carpetbagger columnists of the new york times. He joined us from the toronto. International film festival kyle have as much fun as can be had. I will try gas when janni coming up the new artistic director of the oregon shakespeare festival taki garrett on the power of theater plus an all female mariachi band dan. That's shaking up tradition. That's next on the frame weekend. In fact i lost three one point comedy. It's the frame weekend and i'm john horn every year from early march to late october. The rural town of ashland oregon is overtaken by the oregon shakespeare festival where they put on a mix of eleven classical and contemporary plays across three stages. The massive of endeavour began in one thousand nine hundred thirty five when tickets cost just fifty cents for adults and twenty five cents for kids by now. It's got an operating the budget of about forty million dollars in tickets. They're a little pricier. Ashland is just sixteen miles north of the california border but for the new artistic justic director mottaki garrett it was a lifetime away from her growing up in oakland and for that matter so was broadway. The first play i saw on broadway was recent as a young person. Of course my mother was a teacher. We couldn't afford broadway <hes> but as a grownup and artists at artiste based out of keller it's i avoided it so the first quiet as it's kept the first actual production of anything that i saw on broadway was sweat well then auditors play uh-huh i mean that's interesting when i think about what broadway represents and what ashland represents because i've been to ashland and a lot of people go there there are people with money and people with privilege and they tend to be from my is mostly white and that is in many ways the broadway broadway audience so there is some overlap there so how do you work with that demographic. How do you embrace them and also challenge ange them. They've actually been asking me in every conversation. I'm having with my stewarding audience. How are you going to diversify us. What are you going to do to make sure that people are coming coming that other people that don't look like this that are younger than us that are <hes> from different cultural backgrounds and my question back to them as yes. What are you going to do. And how are you going to to assist in that. It's a destination or you have to choose to come there a group in oakland. I'm sure i had friends who went up every year. That never spoke about it to me. The never said wanted to join us on this trip ashland windsor said oh. It's tough because i know it's an exclusivist experience. It belongs to me. I'm supposed to be the one to go to it. Oh and then later on when i'm a grownup and i've been working in the theater for twenty five years and they say you never came. No i never came. I was not invited. I didn't know anything about it. My mother worked three jobs. You know that that was not a part of my life but i also feel like you never invited aided me. You weren't answer yeah like they're not forwardly excluding me from it. What they are doing is not remembering to bring me along as a way of of saying this is something for us that gets to a fundamental issue that anybody who is running a nonprofit arts organization with a subscriber base faces and that that is we have these people who are loyal customers and they keep coming year after year after year and there are these new audiences that we want to develop and and often the new audience and the old audience aren't going to agree on the same thing so how do we retain these people that are our lifeblood and give new audiences something that they're attracted to and maybe challenge these existing subscribers to open their minds to new kinds of art see. I think we're asking the wrong question so i think the question is. How can we create a space where people feel confident enough to share their armchair rest with everybody else. That's where i think we have to ask. We have to figure out where is that intersection that traverses the the divide between queen age and race and gender that says it's okay for me to sit next to you while we witnessed that and that's what i have to start to teach my audience they can take a classic play and you can stage it in a way and it can tell a new story so when you think about classic works that can can be reexamined is important to you to look at how these works live and breathe in the modern world and does that fuel exciting to you or is it difficult. It's both it's both difficult and exciting. There are some plays written by her namesake playwright. Shakespeare shakespeare were you. I'm just appalled and i know he's a man of his time and it's really important to separate time from now but i i had somebody write me a letter where they want me to be aware of the impact of the work of shakespeare on a new audience and when we forgive because he's a man of his time time we forgive him for stories about rape and incest and stories about racism and stories are that are antisemitic and disability when you have all of those things happening sitting in a play then you pack it and you say well this is high art and you're supposed to like this and if you don't like it there's something wrong with you and then you present that to middle school children or you present that to high schoolers college age people and you're basically saying to them. You should figure out a way to accept this. This should be something that you should swallow oh and so i think as a person who produces shakespeare i have to be very clear about the impact that i'm making and where i have. The most control is is in the image. The word is powerful because of the image because how the body holds it. That's where i can make the difference. We're talking to win. The talkie garrett who is the new artistic. Take director of the oregon shakespeare festival good art is about conversation and it's about a conversation that happens on many different levels. What can theater do that movies his music tv visual art cantu. What is unique power of theater in conversation. There's something about witnessing witnessing humanity live with other humans. There's something chemical or physiological that shifts in your heart and your brain in your blood where you realize you're watching something. You're you're being a voyeur. You're watching something terrible. You're watching something delicious and funny. You're you're witnessing something and you're breathing. The air with other people that organic experience is something that is kind of singular to the theater and i think that's the the separation. It's not the concert right where you have a barrier and it's not a dance show where people aren't speaking. It's all of those things at once and it's happening organically. Your first season won't be unveiled until two thousand twenty one but when you were thinking about it's kind of like a fantasy football draft. When you're picking your players. What are you looking for. And what do you not looking for. One of the things that i'm focused on as artistic director and as an artist is i'm looking for a way to open our capacity for empathy through the work that we do oh and the place that i'm inspired by our plays that reminds us of our basic humanity and inspire us to action so that we can create spaces where people can can live there full dynamic lives and that's extremely important to me as an artist and as a human being and as an artistic director my goal is to locate those plays and and try to figure out i if they can give us a d percents of who we are in our profound humanity and if they can lead us towards the possibility ability for a better future a brighter future future for the people that were raising to populate this world if they don't do those things that i'm not interested in it and that's including shakespeare where when i do produce shakespeare. I'm looking for a way to shake things up. In the way that the populace playwright shakespeare was looking for a way to shake things up and engage shakespeare wrote plays for royalty so that he could afford to write the place for the people and i'm interested in the gap between those two spaces as well and i'm interested in the intersection between those two spaces and that's how we program season looking for new planes new riders new new ideas new thoughts new forms and then the last thing is how will those plays effect the people on the other side of the footlights what happens to my audience when i'm asking them to engage with each other in the experience of witnessing a story natasha garrett is the new artistic director of the oregon shakespeare festival in ashland oregon mottaki. Thanks so much for coming in thank you you thank you for having me being. You're listening to the frame weekend. I'm john horn they play traditional instruments and they can belt out classic mexican songs longs but the new york-based group floor toll is not your grandad's mariachi as the frame contributor beto arcos reports. This all female email group is creating a new musical style. Blending mariachi sounds with r._&_b. It's midday l._t._v. studios in west l._a. And mariachi flotilla tolo archie is warming up for performance on one of the cable channels shows after their performance formats. I sat down with the leading members of florida for an interview violinist and singer media guarumos grew up in puerto rico. Her mother is from the dominican republic. Her father was a musician from each organ mexico. Grandma says one day she felt a calling had the desire to collaborate with with other women. I was one of the only female musicians playing medici and new york city during that time this is about seven years before two thousand eight and i i just wanted to do my own arrangements as well and my own compositions i invest in two thousand and eight almost called cuban-american singer and guitarist shea field. They met through a mutual friend from the scene and together. They decided to form the group florida tolo archie in the beginning. They played all the usual mariachi gigs gin-san yet hit us weddings birthdays funerals and they were also buskers playing in manhattan subway stations single. Shea field says the subway gigs helped to audition potential new members. We also knew who was committed by the ones that would come out to the subway with the players and then we got to try out a lot of new stuff. It was basically like rehearsal paid rehearsal with an audience but that wasn't technically a show there was one thing they had cleared from the get-go. Their goal is a group was to do a fusion of mariachi and other music styles violinist. Media georamas wouldn't be genuine to us to do traditional miyachi because none of the girls actually come. I'm from <hes> mighty tradition other than me and i was raised in mexico. I my approach to the media was from far away from puerto rico so even even for me was them that genuine to do just traditional mexican my data so the goal was always to do new arrangements and to kind of experiment with the genre when they decided to record the first album feel feel says they needed songs and we had some of our own songs written already from our own projects and then let's bring these in and do them florida watch style and so let down was one of the first ones and definitely had arbi vocals already <hes> but what we needed to do as adapted thrown in the beware land trumpet put all these different the technical styles into the song they saw at the bottom of the bottom mr for their new album titled indestructible floor the tolo archie collaborated on a song titled fellow viki with the pop singer miguel who who happens to be ramos's cousin doesn't amazing experience in the studio with him and also it was so emotional because his grandmother my grandmother used to sing together in mexico and me john may have a wet cloth <hes> mm-hmm widow at a at area and at any as their last name and they had just passed away not too long ago before the session so it was really emotional. Session russian felt like they were there with us and that they made this whole thing happened for us. Yes oh it was really pretty for the song cassia shaffi all says there producer wrath selena offered to pop singer john legend he's like well. Let me see you know. I'll talk to him and and we'll see you know he can. We can see spanish but we wrote in english. I just in case he was into it and and so you know we're like okay we shop for the stars the stars and think of who we we wanna sing on this album john legend of course boost still cuban-american singer-guitarist horace sheffield says there's a certain responsibility that comes with being part of a mariachi group play in mexican music not being mexican. There's a lot of pressure <hes> oh you gotta show up and really know your stuff and not only that but you know respect the tradition in the culture because people are looking at you because you're not so they want to be like and what he'd doing and why florida warner latin grammy for best mariachi album in two thousand seventeen for their album called last linda's despite all the recognition and violinist media yarom says they're still criticized for not following the traditional mariachi they still come to us and say ooh doesn't look good. You should wear <music> skirt all those shoes on look. Even our hair should be back cut truly and you know it's like it's it's wrong. It's like there's. There's these mighty laws that we shouldn't cross and i don't know who put them there. I asked the members of florida to tell the story behind the band's name. They said florida taller watch him is a desert flower. It's also call devil's trumpet and it seed it is protected by spikes. It's a flower you don't wanna mess with. It's fair to say the ban lives up to its name for the frame. I'm at the articles aw instead coming up on the frame weekend filmmakers rob epstein jeffrey friedman's new film. Linda ronstadt the sound of my voice. We really came to see her. Story is one of <hes> empowerment and she was a woman who was taking it in a male world this musical music world that was controlled by men and making it on her own terms and a pioneer in that regard regards. That's next on the frame weekend to welcome back to the frame weekend on john horn singer. Linda ronstadt is probably most well known for belting vocals and rock hit after rocket but the true ronstadt fan knows that the musician now seventy three was much more than a rockstar she he was a musical innovator it with a stunning range from opera to mariachi standards to frank sinatra songs filmmakers rob epstein and jeffrey friedman took ronstadt as the subject and their new film linda iran set the sound of my voice baby. You know <hes> play an early song that linda ronstadt records and i wanna play a clip from the film and and this song might be familiar to a lot of people who know linda ronstadt songs so this one is called different from so that's her recording of it or performance of it in the film and this is the version that probably most of us have heard <hes> so i'm gonna ask you a little bit about the people that linda ronstadt works with what role the producers and engineers played in the development of amusing because same song but very different sound that producer had a strong idea of what their arrangement was going to be for that and linda at i i was taken aback when she heard it because she was used to the folk version so it took her awhile to make that adjustment but of course she realizes that that that's what help to make it a hit people may not realize that it was originally written by a man michael smith who went onto become part of the monkeys <hes> and the song's about a man not wanting to tied down to any one woman and linda turn that on its head we really came to see her story as one of <hes> <hes> empowerment culture so male dominated and it also seems to be dominated by by sort of hostility against women you know that this sort of <hes> sir sexual identity is it's used as a weapon against the populace you know women in particular and then everyone identifies adviser that when she was a woman who was making it in a male world this musical music world that was controlled by men and making it on her own terms and <hes> a pioneer in that regard linda ronstadt had an unbelievable range and she could sing anything <music> aw it felt like she was always hungry. She wanted to try new things if it was a comic opera of it was old standards. Why was she so driven to not stay just doing rock. What was what was behind that motivation. Do you think she is an artist and i think she was just restless and unsatisfied to keep repeating what she'd been doing doing the best she describes it as having to sing the same thing over and over again until it starts to sound like your washing machine but these are genres was in styles that she grew up listening to and they were all part of her authentic musical d._n._a. About singing from each other it was incorporated into what we did sang at the dinner table. He sang in the car. We sang with their hands in the dishwater and there there were things that you wanted to get back to. It was the music that she loved at a certain point in her career. She was successful enough to be able to say <hes> okay okay. I i wanna do i wanna do something completely different now <hes> along those same lines. She was told no a lot of times by record executives and i think as was often the case when they said no. They wished they had said yes so the album is called conscientious day me padre songs of my father and in it not only is critically successful. I think to this day. It's the largest selling spanish language album in u._s. Recorded music histories that right. I i think that's still holds. Why was that important to her and when she was told no. How did she get around that. How did she prevail while the record companies were baffled by her choices at that point in her career <hes> but she was bound and determined and she says at one point in an interview in the film from that a period. She said this is music. If i don't do i will die. I mean she was. She was a musical adventurer when she had her sights on what that next adventure was going to be <hes> it was going to happen. Come hell or high water and listen to the voice. She's so it's just a completely different part of her voice them. We've heard i think in any of the incarnations before for linda. She says that's when you really felt like she was a singer when she became a singer when she mastered the <unk>. There's a scene toward the end of the film in which linda ronstadt is singing or trying to sing and it's very touching touching. I think some people could read it as heartbreaking. I thought it was beautiful. What was it like to film the scene with linda with parkinson's trying to sing. We wanted to find a way to include linda in the present tense knowing that condition that she said she wasn't willing or able to do a sit down interview late in the game she was doing this trip to mexico and invited our cameras to participate and let us film this very very intimate scenes of her singing with her nephew and her cousin and i think from linda's perspective if felt like a very natural natural organic way to let the audience in on her present tense without making any kind of issue of it without making any kind of point it was just just a moment where you get to see her leaving her life very fully completely engaged music is still very much a part of her or life as she says she still sings in her mind <hes> and this was a rare moment where she's also singing very intimately with family rob epstein and jeffrey friedman's. Friedman's new documentary is called. Linda ronstadt the sound of my voice robin jeffrey. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Thanks ooh <hes> oh letting the ronstadt. The sound of my voice is in theaters now <music>. You're listening to the frame weekend. <music> uh-huh is this taurus has the back of some abandoned abandoned building people generally see during the so for our last story today the frame news clerk andrea gutierrez and i traveled to koreatown town. It's where we met up with filmmaker justin chon his latest film is called miss purple. It's about a young woman caring for her ailing father. She's a pianist. I bet she has to put her music on hold and find a job and she ends up working as a hostess in a karaoke bar. We met up with john at soup soak. That's the bar where he shot most of his film well. Let's let's take a look inside the lights on the miracle lights so this is this is a room that that the final scene was shot in the intense saying no casey drink drissa jason beautiful when you're thinking about making this movie. Did you start with a character <music> who was carrying. Her ailing. Father was her job working in karaoke bars essential. What was the nature goes to things came together. The first and foremost thing is i wanted to tell the story about a brother and sister specifically that that dynamic these i have a younger sister and and <hes> i haven't really seen him explored much in film other than you can count on me. The savage is skeleton twins. <hes> and i knew i wanted to set it in crea town because you know growing up and coming here so often it was a different place in the eighties nineties and now it's become becomes such a gentrified neighborhood that it sometimes i don't even recognize and i wanted to tell a story about the people who are still here and grew up here and and and it's almost sometimes feel like it's a time machine does move forward but they've been left behind and that always fascinates me in in sort of the idea of unfulfilled dreams and people who come to this country and don't i'm quite fulfil what they set out to do. Do you ever wonder where the money comes from a comes from a bother you. It doesn't bother me in case you have to do to keep that alive on. I don't judge you for it. Okay i wanted her to have a job that was compromising because i thought that that really showcased how stuck in in her own world and how stuck in the position she he was in in something that she needed to to break free of in koreans called tony which means literally means helper and basically they come and it's sort of a you're paying for companionship but the reality of it is in present day. It's a very big mix. Girls rose in a lot of these girls are either trying to pay off credit card debt or student loans and during our research. We've found like girls girls who are trying to make business connections so some people utilize it for their own sort of business building weird way. We're talking with justin chon on the writer and director of purple. There are a couple of relationships that you're examining one is a brother sister relationship and the other is <music> a father and mother relationship and the mother of these children makes a choice that is radically different from the daughter. Yes the mom says and the daughter. I think feels an obligation to stick around and not take something that might be more attractive. Yeah and i think ah theme that i do consistently explore my films are is <hes> collateral baggage like the baggage from the old country and the customs and what what are the things that you should keep intact one of the things that you should shed once you come to a new country and assimilate and there is a dichotomy kadhamy that that is very obvious where the mother lived her own life in deserted the family and but then the daughters stuck and shares his filial sort would of duty if she didn't have to figure out how to care for her father which he'd be playing piano. What was the dream that she gave up. And why did she have to give it it up. Yeah you know the mid point in the film. She does talk about her brother kind of says. Hey look what i found. He finds like a tiny electric a keyboard in the closet he he asks her. Listen used to love playing that then. You went to school for taking piano yeah and you didn't finish you mm. You liked it right. That's why did you finish school and i think that's pretty common you know i've i've heard a lot of people that i know personal friends who really great at something that they loved and had to give it up to help help run parents store or help their parents with their business and it fell very true to me <hes> but if the dad had not gone sick and the dad is is such a dark reminder that the american dream doesn't always <hes> it's not aw roses sometimes it doesn't go in your favor and the two kids are sort of casualties of that. There are some very specific things about l._a. In this film film there's a line about how even the palm trees are not native and then there's a shot of the piano and union station where people can actually play. How did you catch the city city in this film specifically and create town. There's a constant theme of green and green equated money and i remember one time a friend from new york. We we'd hung out and he's like yeah man. The only thing i noticed kind of feel about l. a.'s all the damn palm trees trees and i'm like what no. There's no pa like what are you. That's a stereotype. There's no palm trees in l._a. And he's like what like they're everywhere and then i remember coming back from that trip we were on and i came back and looked up and there are palm trees everywhere. I had never but it's it's so symbolic lick. The thing i wanted to say is you don't take the time to look up and the the metaphor of the palm trees. They're not from here. They're all transplanted here like all of all of us are but they're dying. I mean palm trees aren't meant to be in this climate in and it was such a great metaphor for me for who belongs here. We're in this room at soups oak and inside this room. There's a scene that involves violence and it's not just that it's a violent scene but it's that it is violence committed by men against women that seems ordinary and acceptable. I knew i wanted to have a female protagonist and i found myself itself trying to make everything fair. If something bad happens to her something good has happened to her and i realized i was doing a disservice. If if i wasn't being honest and what needed to happen i felt for for casey. The main character is at chew so stuck in this mindset mindset and and going at it alone and feeling like taking the whole burden of the world and for her. She is a woman she feels so alone but there are so many people that that that would you know are there to support a she just to scare to ask and i feel especially my community. The women especially the the older generation they are really scared. Ask for help hopefully with my generation a generation younger. It's it's you don't have to be ashamed for to ask because there. There's plenty of people who are there for you justin great to see you. Thank you very much yeah okay.

Redmayne and Jones Reunite In 'The Aeronauts'

"From the Mon Broadcast Center at KPCC. It's the frame. I'm John Horn today. Show what led to Gabrielle. Union's ouster poster as a judge on America's got talent then Felicity Jones. Eddie Redman play nineteenth century balloonists in the nods. Their experience experience working together on the theory of everything was a big help. This film is basically a of Boston. Amounts of aid to of bosquet about the size of visit of small table able. And when you're spending three months instead Bosca you need a break buck and will learn how vinyl record gets made in two thousand nineteen on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn the NBC competition show. America's got talent created by Simon cowl is in the news to of cows fellow judges the Dancer Julian Huff love and the actress Gabrielle. Union will not be returning for the next season of America's got talent for Riecke is reporting that before union's contract wasn't renewed dude. She had raised concerns about racially insensitive workplace behavior and performances. Matt Donnelly has been covering the story for variety and we started off talking talking about guest. Judge at the center of one of Union's complaints. Jay Leno was Sort of hired at the guest judge on America's got talent and you know obviously Jay has long ties to NBC and was just sort of services someone who would come in and It's it's sort of Kim. Just done casting you know. They they have a rotating series of guest judges judges and I think that you know sort of a no brainer. that he'd be someone on their list. You got the moves and you've got the personality but it just wasn't enough jokes in there for me Jay okay You WanNa maybe sleep on it for a second or during a tour of the production offices of America's got talent on the NBC Universal Lot here in North Hollywood good While walking through the offices of Cameras Leno has to painting of signing Colin his beloved rescue dogs To wish we were told by multiple sources sources that Leno joked the pets something quote on the menu of a Korean restaurant which is not only not funny but offensive to a lot of people including shooting. I suspect asian-americans funny and also incredibly offensive in dated. It's a joke to on the perpetuates. What many people feel is is an increasingly irrelevant stereotype. And yet nothing happens. People are offended and are their complaints. Made that fall on deaf ears or people encouraged not to say anything. Yes yes I was told two different things one. The jokes sort of universally offended over two dozen people who were present for that moment which included America's Got Talent Judge Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough included people from the crew obviously the camera crew and then hair and makeup people. But I was told the Gabrielle though to it on that. NBC executive sort of one of the NBA deal signed to the show about reporting the joke to human resources because unfortunately one of the few Asian people that are staffed on America's got talent present but the joke we reported And Gabrielle was keen to make sure that people understood why it was offensive. And and just sort of checking with the staff and everyone was okay That was not escalated human resources at NBC. Although the joke was cut from the episode that eventually Aaron August every belief that nothing happened with Jay. Lenos comment how does that tie in to what Gabrielle. Union is apparently complaining about that her her point multiple sources familiar earlier with her time on the show Stress to us with that Gabrielle consistently brought up problematic part of the culture in America. Got Talent You know so. That was considered racially insensitive You know possibly sexist Consistently these issues were raised. And I think that the inclination on NBC's part with to edit out anything that was offensive from the final episode that would air and issues raised in the workplace in real time. Weren't really of that much important. So Gabrielle Union will not op becoming back along with Julianne. Hough for another season of America's got talent what has been the networks explanation for why they're not coming back then two weeks ago Gabrielle. Alan Julianne Hough Run for them that they would not be coming back despite both having options to return for at least another season NBC said that they have a long history of rotating in-and-out and now judges to keep the show fresh and they also underscored their commitment to diversity and inclusion. Gabrielle was a very successful judge and I'm also a new mom this the social media impressions with a show doubled when she joined. It's the toughest job I've ever had and the most rewarding job I've ever had you just want to give your kids. It's the moon the stars in the rainbows and tonight no she had the largest social following of anybody on the panel and ball ratings have been down. I think that a lot of people on a different kind of your had turning into the show so I think that she and as we reported was sort of left confused by the decision and over the weekend it came out that Sag after the the Union for actors is launching an investigation. Any idea what they're looking into the holiday story really began to to get a groundswell of support. From other other famous women Patricia Arquette specifically call them the Union to investigate which right and then confirmed They have taken steps toward doing the issues. Are Twofold The one that Ah that a member of SAG after had been raising you know valid concerns over workplace toxicity that weren't being addressed to There were other reports that Simon Cow. How was known to smoke? Heavily endures and that union is allergic to cigarette smoke which lead to serious illness that lasted over two months. That was a you know. Oh cost electro bronchial infection so that's sort of jeopardizing of of her instruments as a performer. which I think is a direct union issue. It's a workplace safety hazard. So Oh I believe that. They'll be looking into that as well. We're talking with varieties Matt Donnelly about what's going on America's got talent that raises the bigger question. How much of this show is Simon uncountable show and that if people are not in good standing with Simon Cowe they're not gonna last long sweeping perception? That feinman cow was the end. All be all of the show Well NBC at the Distributor The the UK company Fremantle produces the theory along with Simon callow psycho entertainment. And he sort of kingpin onset onset. He hasn't for a long time. Simon also ownership in the God talent format around the world not just in the US So I think he's a pretty Autonomous Voice there. I do believe that if you're not in good standing with the yeah you probably won't you won't be returning. NBC has its own history with issues. Obviously they fired Matt Lauer from the Today's Today's show based on allegations of his inappropriate behavior toward women. What is it networks saying about? What's going on at America's got talent and specifically what's going on with Gabrielle Union? I was told her over the weekend by sources. NBC Has Retained Third Party Council to investigate some of Gabrielle's complaints And sort of go on a fact-finding mission Asian before they launched something formal into the culture of the show But I think a lot of people and we've seen come out of the woodwork. To sort of decry overall institutional toxicity DOC said that he had NBC from Ellen. Peyot who brought up lower as you just mentioned To Tina Shannon who's the CEO of times up who basically issued a scathing statement and saying that the network had the habit of protecting the expensive women who speak out Matt. Donnelly is a senior film writer at Variety Matt. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thank you to keep up with other entertainment industry news be sure to visit variety dot com coming up on the frame actors. Eddie read main and Felicity Jones Jones team up for their second film together. This one's called the Rinat. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. The new film the aaronow Stars Felicity Jones and Eddie read main the last time the actors made a movie together. It was Stephen Hawking. Talking story that theory of everything both of them were nominated for Academy Awards for their performances in that film and read made won an Oscar. For playing hawking in the `Aeronautics Redman and Jones play Victorian era balloons. The story while fiction is inspired by several real high altitude adventurers and explores the beginning of forecasting. The weather I spoke with the actors at the telluride Film Festival where they had its world premiere his friend. I need to makes these of not a coachman for higher. You are the unpleasant who could fly US higher than anyone has ever been so when you so my first question is do you come in together or does one join nuts. I do you like say I'm in. If you're in a really because I thought you meant flying generate. We did come together in fact we initially we. We will obviously sent it separately. Read it separately. Both had a very positive response to it. I think we both found though aspects the character that we jumped out of the of the two characters and then we had We caught up on the phone and had a chat about it. The really short and I think the main thing was in a sense was kind of if you do it. Then I'll do. It seemed to be the overriding conclusion. Because this film it's basically a vast amount of is two of us in a basket about the size of a small table and when you're spending three months instead instead basket you need you need to get on with the person that you're with and and also what was love. Felicity and is having worked to theory of everything was to trust each other also a push each other to to to make it something new. Yeah I think suddenly felt like it. It suddenly had a new dimension into working with someone that you've already worked with before it sort of felt remember the African Queen talking about dynamic between these to actors and it sort of sort of old Hollywood about reuniting does that create not only a comfort level to feel comfortable but also so a comfort level to push yourself and do things where you feel you could be safe and not have to worry about how things are GonNa play that that you can be more free to to experiment or try things that maybe if you didn't know each other you couldn't that that comfort actually makes things a little more dangerous in a way. I think I mean I just always find when I went with Eddie he just he I always go beyond what I think is possible. And that he is his level of Detail the approach coach. The he just pushed me forward and onwards and better and better and so. It's always fun when we did theory. I'll never forget. We had both come off doing independent American film that we both the new techniques that were about improvising around text. When when it's on one person's close up to to force that person outside of their comfort zone and it was something that worked quite well there and you can only do that with an actor? You know really well you they happy to do that. And we used moments of that in this film. Didn't we when there were close. UPS would improvise something off camera to get a reaction out of me and I would do the same with her. And that's it so rare that you get to know someone's process wasn't unlike theory of everything there are. I don't know compressions. I guess would be a fair way to say so. Fills me about your character. How much of it is based on a historical person? How much is a composition? And when you're thinking about what you can capture from reality. How much is there available for you? In terms of reference and research. Well there was an enormous about enormous amount of resources But the single person that was such such a an inspiration for Amelia was This woman called Safety Blanchard. Who is one of the first woman who's French? One of the first woman to fly solo in in a gas balloon and she was absolutely crazy and used to do these night. Flights and throw fi works out of the balloon basket actually till her death at the end she killed herself by throwing fireworks out of the balloon which then set on fire and she fell and hit the rooftops of Paris and felt her. It doesn't happen to a meteorite or does it. There was definitely that dead devil streak. I was just essential for playing a media an amazing story about Sophie shot as well that she was Napoleon's favorite aaronow. Renew it once. She went up in a basket the size of a champagne bucket in a diaphanous gown and just floated over the battlefield just to freak out the deponent's basically when Napoleon thought they could use gas ebb leans to invade England and she was going to be leading the the invasion. And what about your character. I mean he is somebody a who is also historical figure. WHO's trying to figure out? Meteorology this crazy concept that you can predict the weather. In fact he's probably the first person in the world who was thinking about climate change but how much of his life is based on your character. And how much are you inventing the whole piece. There's a beautiful book called falling outputs which is history history of aveling and and what that was the basis for the film and the film itself is a conflation of all of these extraordinary true stories together and so James Glaciers flight which the film's specifically is based on did happen and glacier was he he was the son of a watchmaker from rather high and his ambition and his drive was something that I looked into. Twenty is younger than he was so there was we were given a certain that was a certain amount of research and then there was just a freedom to kind of use that as a bounce board ready to spring it sounds bounce con. We're talking with Eddie. Redman and Felicity Jones at telluride about their new film the Arnauts. I WanNa ask you felicity about something you told. Tell me about the other day about a flight. You took before production well on the US. Dave sheeting We went up in a gas balloon. We'd been we'd we'd been rehearsing the sequence for some time But on the day there were other elements involved and it was a huge helicopter. They were doing A wide shot of taking off in the balloon just after the initial takeoff And we ended up in a situation where the helicopters had got shot and they sped off and we were still floating in the gas abilene and the pilot who was in the corner I'm told us To throw out the sand because you power the gas balloon three sand. Obviously the less weight you have the high you get and he suddenly turned around to us and he said throughout the sand throughout the sand. Say We Julie did exactly what he wanted throughout the sand. Let loose from trees trees as we were about because he wanted to land the balloon you we throughout all of the sand and suddenly. He said that wasn't actually the right thing to do. This is the pilot telling you this. We'd been misdirected acted and then suddenly having thrown out the balloon we had this incredibly rocky landing and hit the ground quite velocity and l.. maced break my back. I think those horrendous crunch because we've thrown all the all the sand out so when we came down to land we did actually crash into trees got caught in the trees and the Bassett came smashing down and there was this horrific crunches felicitous heads smacked against the James Glaciers box. That he has nothing and then it was just total silence news and there was just hopeless to go. I'm not sure I can move so we had to. That was when we started. That was day one day wind could have been day one one of one day one of aaronow but even though that sounds horrific that so much of this movie has to be by the nature of the production. Shot Against Green screen in where you're pretending to be up in the air. Even those terrifying does that inform the rest of the production because you know what it actually means like to lose control definitely without a doubt I mean the moment when Eddie I kind of gripping onto the side of the basket holding hands thinking this was going to be our final moments. You definitely bring that experience into the into the making of the film without a doubt. This is probably as you say. I think several months where you're in a set about as big as coffee table or at least in that kind kind of distance proximity to each other when you think about going from one film to a next and the things that attract too as actors being in a confined space base for smaller independent film. Doing something much more bigger budget. Do you find yourself wanting to move from one to the other. Even if you don't have a plan as one film beget another in terms of wanting wanting to do something different in any kind of natural order I income I mean I find in films I like to see I. Love going and seeing massive blockbusters and then the next day seeing a very auteur driven film I think I daily a career that pivots between those things is a is a happy place to be but but at the same point I think when actors talk about strategy or trying to work out what. Your career is realistic. Never never was because what happens is a script arrives in your desk and it either moves you or or what happens. Is You get to page about twenty and you go from really enjoying something to having a slightly sick feeling in your stomach going. Oh God I've got to do this. And so what we ultimately is always about instinct so as much as we love the idea of strategizing if I was saying in this morning during a Q.. And A. After all screaming that that you know I was looking to do something contemporary American or these thing and then I got offered the part of scientists scientists in period drama wearing tweeds with felicity was like perfect tastefully on in line with the strategy at the At infelicity thanks so much for coming on the show. Thanks for having US thank you very much. That was Felicity Jones and Eddie Redman. Their movie they earn outs comes out on December. Sixth coming up after the break. What a resurgence? In the popularity of vinyl means for the few businesses that still manufacture records. That's next on the frame. Stay with us. Vinyl records have made a big comeback in recent years and that means business is booming for the handful of plants that actually manufacture those disks frame contributor contributor and Vinyl Junkie Steven Cuevas went out to Detroit. visit two of those companies third man pressing and outfit opened by musician Jack White and Archer Archer record pressures. which has been in the business for more than half a century? That's not surface noise from a needle digging into the grooves of an old LP. It's it's one of the Steam Boilers that Archer record pressures. That's the boiler. Yeah I've actually sounds like I've got a gasket and just run the league that's like I said it's always something that'll be fixing that here shortly and that's Mike Archer grandson a founder Norman Archer who opened up shop in nineteen sixty four. The boiler generates hot steam for the small fleet of Automatic Vinyl pressures which typically produced about ten thousand records a week. Personally these prices are proven. Obviously the in service for fifty years when the press is cranked up back in the mid nineteen sixties. Detroit was pumping out some of the greatest music ever pressed on vinyl some of it right here at Berkshire including music sick from my mother in the nineteen sixty nine debut single of then little known musician named George Clinton and his collective fucking delic slow down to the NBA fifty plus years later Archer still focuses primarily on local and regional clients dance and the workshop floor hasn't changed much over the years. It's all dirt greased and noise a no frills. Three men operation that runs a team of automated needed presses eight hours a day but it all starts with little chunks of polyvinyl chloride and this is this is the raw material right here these little colored pellets. They look like rabbit food or something. That's how it starts and it gets melted and an extruder sure. It's the family business but why not one. That held much allure for Mike. Archers a kid you know I like music but no I didn't like making records. This is hard work actually. You know it's it's There are easier ways of making a living but then I got into the corporate world and I wasn't really happy there either in my father was still running the place. He says those were busy and I couldn't understand why we would be busy because I didn't understand. People are still buying records with the advent of CDs and digital downloading. Vinyl became an endangered species nations scores of treasures business but Detroit. It just happened to be home through music scene. Well we are doing a lot of works for hip hop artists especially here defrays the techno music the big three that started the scene were Atkins.

And we actually have a bit of incentive. Yes. So we have a contest. It's from the inky lists. So some of you may have listened to that episode recently.

All the details will be there, and we hope that you will click through and give us some feedback. We would love that. I can't wait to learn more about all of U S. Exactly. And in other news. We were recently guests on a couple of podcasts one that I want to call out. I is under the influence podcast with Whitney ECO's. Yes. So Whitney is based in San Diego. We jumped on a call with her and. Her whole podcast focuses on the booming business of social media and social media influencers. And so we were giving her our take on like where we think this whole medium is going how we journeyed ourselves from print publishing into podcasting. Of course, we couldn't get through. And I was so it without talking about some of our favorite products that you probably haven't heard us talk about before. And we will link to this in our show now, let's who had a great time talking to her. Yeah. It's always fun to connect with more pod Vam right for sure. So just search it up in ITN's, it's called under the influence podcast. So tell me about your Regan's all my gosh. I had such a massive weekend. You don't even know tell me, do, you know, how I got to hang out with officially this weekend know, who Michelle Obama. You dead yet. I'm not if I'm in disbelief them at all what her jaaz on the table everybody. Yes. I paid for a ticket to go to Scotiabank arena here in Toronto. Okay. This is my friend science with my friend Vanessa and we got to see Michelle Obama in the flesh about in spo-. I mean, honestly, you know, what was your favorite part? Well, you know, I couldn't stop talking about her book. There was just so many nuggets of wisdom. And I don't know. I just think that she is I just find her so inspiring, and she's so commanding on a stage, and it was just so great the energy in their everybody. It's just so positive, and I think we need so much positively right now after the Michelle Obama event on Saturday night, I was so excited when I was scrolling through Instagram because in New York City, Gucci beauty was having this off the charts party to finally reveal their latest lipstick launch as some of you may know, they've been teasing out for a while. They're revamping their makeup and on Saturday night, they reveal to the world the fifty eight shades of lipstick that are the first part of the collection. They're gorgeous. I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek of the lipsticks a few weeks back at a press event. We will report back, but what really has everybody talking are these campaign images. It's all masterminded by Andrew MacKay. Of course, the creative director at Gucci. And the reason that these campaign images are making headlines is because they're all about celebrating in perfection and celebrating flaws in fact, Allesandro Maekelae when he was describing them he was saying that make up should not mask, but rather exalt flaws and make them part of the everyday language of beauty, which I'm so on board with so for example, one of the main images features punk rocker, Danny Miller. She's so bad ass and she smiling in the in the campaign shot, and she does not have hyper straight bleached white teeth. In fact, she has kind of the. Opposite Estee laundry went so far as to call it dental diversity in this campaign. And I think that you know, there's even some shots whether it's like lipstick on teeth, and it is truly just so groundbreaking. And it's kind of polarizing honestly, like we put a picture of it up on our Instagram stories on the weekend, and it was divided right down the middle. Fifty percent of people loved it fifty percent of people loathed dead. So I think anytime you can get that kind of reaction. It's a good thing. And I think we're just not used to seeing it. So it's going to take some time to sort of wrap your head around seeing that in a glossy makeup campaign. What did you get up to? I was looking for a place to stay. Yes. As you know, we're doing a family trip to the east coast the summer, we are going to be I which some of our listeners may know is where jill's from Prince Edward Island. So we're actually going to hook up for a few days on the beach. Yes, so excited bring the Mike's down to the beach get some sand in them. See what happens? I can't wait to like the sound of the ocean on the Mike. Yeah. But I was always looking for places on Airbnb, and I found a place that was said it was gently haunted. What like what? Well, I feel like if it's an old farmhouse stands to reason. Yeah. Right. I mean who stays there though. I think there's a whole niche market of people that love staying at haunted places. Yes. Part of the lore of you know, we're going to stay here. And then it's it adds to the vacation. Yeah. It's like just another story. They can tell when they get home. I guess so I feel like it's also just a way to potentially market like a shit hole. Yeah. You're like this is true. And the other thing is too like like, maybe it's an SEO thing. I'm gay. Maybe they're trying to capitalize on vacation seeker or people who are seeking out haunted homes to vacation in maybe you know, and that on Airbnb would pop up. Yes, I'm ably. Well, I'll tell you whoever staying there doesn't have kids. I mean, did you find? Place. We haven't booked anything yet the church tuned on that front. Okay. What else? Did you do? Well, okay. I don't know if you know this. I'm going to quiz you a little trivia, Gino when Star Wars like the national day for Star Wars as. Yeah. May the fourth. Yeah. Made me more be with. Yes. Yes. So of course, we had to do a a little bit of a little honor little hat tip to Star Wars. I know you're not the biggest fan art, whatever I can take or leave. But are do you kids watch it now? Yeah. So well, I grew up with it, of course. And like, I mean, it was like game of thrones style epic. When I grew up. It was a really big deal and Kevin my husband, of course, was the same. But it's really fun when you have kids to like rewatch. Yes movies. And so that's what's happening now and Ryan's a little young. But in gets it, and she's super into it now cute. And so she's watched the old. One. She's watching the new ones and that actually leads us into today's guests. Yeah. Because we have Felicity Jones on the Mike sided. It's our second Alastair. Yeah. Or we had amber heard back in September and now, wow, we have we have what's her name is Star Wars. So her name is Jin Urso in the movie rogue one. Oh, amazing. Yeah. So it's just like it's great to see because the old ones like they had these strong female characters like Princess lab, again listened to the net princes lad, I mean, she was about us, but she also likes sometimes they had her looking on like like, a sex slave and win in one scene in like, it's just so different. Now when you look at the more modern like try Mel leads is just their warrior women. Yeah. They are so bad us. I think she's just such a star, Felicity Jones. Like, I saw in the Ruth Bader Ginsburg movie at the end of last year. She was amazing in it. She really. Embodied like her small, but mighty personality. Will you have Bater Ginsburg Rb g forever, and I loved her in theory of everything which was like an Oscar nominated movie a few years ago. Also, playing a very strong woman, Stephen Hawking's, wife rain, and but when I first fell in love with the city Jones was her twenty eleven movie. Yeah. And it was called like crazy. I'll never forget that one. And it's an indie darling movie, and it's all about I loves really, and they fall in love with students and then like continents keep them apart. But it's like this beautiful heart wrenching love story. And you like you will solve on your couch, your friend, my friend, Laura, and I've watched it so many times, it's like embarrassing. But it's like, you can't cry you watch it and not ball your head off on my God. I could see the red wine all the all the snacks. And this you this was like a big hit at Sundance when it first came out that movies. How I knew about it. Yeah. It was it was definitely. Was in heavy rotation for a while. Yeah. Well, you have to tell you. It was such a thrill to meet Felicity Jones in person, and she's really beautiful. She's also really sweet I brought a comic book with her face on the cover rogue one. And she signed the inside for my daughter. That's socially mass. May the force be with you. We'll treasure it forever. But I'm sorry that you weren't there. That's okay. I kind of a bummer because we didn't say where you were when you met her. Yeah. So I was on a press trip in Tokyo. I was so thrilled to be there with Klay DiPoto. So for those of you who may not know Klay DiPoto is a luxury skin care line from Japan. Hence, why the event was in Tokyo and make up to and make up Joe. Yeah. Of course, I always think of the skin care, but yes, they have make as well. And Klay oppo is super luxury. It's kind of like Lemaire and LA prairie. It actually is part of shis SADO, but even more luxurious than Yahoo Saito. Yeah. I. Always think of clip ho because the name is French. Yeah. Which a lot of people. That's why a lot of people. Don't know. It's Japanese right? But it's translates actually mean keys keys of great scanner keys. Let klepto right. And I love all of their products their conceal her is next love. It's the best. Every pro makeup artist has this in their bags since I was a baby beauty editor people would recommend it. And I've turned it on to so many friends, and even though it's like ninety dollars. They still by their like damn you. Yeah. I know. But yeah, works it's kind of like a like a pancake stick. Yeah. I guess it's like, you know, the Bobby Brown like the foundation stick is just the perfect coverage and Felicity Jones talks to us later in the episode about why she loves it as well. But I've been singing the praises of the skin care for so long. I feel like it's going allot attraction right now. Like, I even saw Kim Kardashians. Facialists right before the Oscars. Joanna check she used their eliminating concentrating on Kim Kardashian. She Instagram story it. Okay. Oh, wow. It's infiltrated their cardiac. Sheehan? This is like a big big deal while I was a fan for now. I don't know. But isn't you say it's not in the UK yet? But it's coming. Yeah. It's coming to the UK. So that's super exciting. That's happening in September. It will launch at Harrods. So there are a lot of British editors. Yeah. At the event that I was at as well not shocking that it was not in the UK. I know I know I'm surprised by that. But I guess it's just like slowly making its way I have to just have to tell our listeners about my personal favourite products. Let's hear because I I have been singing the praises of the protective fortifying a motion for years. It's basically the daily moisturizer with us PF God SPF twenty two. So it's like you get the anti-aging benefits writing. But it's just the perfect texture. Yeah. Like four daily moisturizer with us BF. I'm like other companies should just reverse engineer this one because it's that one that goes on perfect under makeup. It's I've got the empty. It's got barely any in it on. My top shelf. I just can't bring myself to throw it out as always scented just faintly. I know I don't love the super scented. It is centered but not a lot, and it doesn't bother me. And I'm pretty sensitive to that. Okay. The softening lotion is like the best essence ever leaves your skin so supple. But anyway are Doug Ross so event that I was at it's interesting because it wasn't about a product launch at. All right. It was actually for a new initiative that Klay depot is doing. It's called the power of radiance program. Hey, so it's really cool. It's like a multi year commitment that they're doing and it's all about supporting education for girls and women around the world. So so every recipient of this particular award in the future, we'll all be focused on education. Yep. All of them. It's always going to be about education, cool, and whoever the recipient is will get funding for the charity of their choice. So this was the very first one the kickoff event, Felicity Jones was there. And there was a panel the very first recipient her name is Mizuno alma Han. And so she's in education activist, and what's cool about her as she she was a teenager when she got involved in this. Yeah, she sounds pretty bad ass. She was the youngest ever appointed. Goodwill ambassador in 2017 seventeen. She was only nineteen years old when she got that designated for UNICEF. So you can just imagine being like a nineteen year old girl, and she was a Syrian refugee and her family fled the Syrian of a war in twenty thirteen. So she spent three years living in refugee camps in Jordan, and I saw her on the stage, and like one of the things that stuck with me that she said is that she was asked. What was the one thing she brought from her home to the refugee camp? And she said a book of poetry, and it was just remarkable to me that as a young teenager at that time in twenty thirteen that that would you know, you. It was would be like a teddy bear or something like that. Yeah. Ten such a prize possession. Yes. It was just about. She always knew that she needed to open her mind, and that that was going to alternately give her freedom. Yeah. It's cool that they're shining a light on her cause and her the things that she's working on. And I love I love now in today's day and age you told me about her and now I can follow her on Instagram. Yeah. And you get to see what she's doing like she's in the field, but she's also a university student, and she's like in the midst of the library stocks getting textbooks for her next paper, and she's just treasuring that so much because she gets to further her education now that she's not in the refugee camp and hasn't forgotten what you know, the trials and tribulations that she went through and she's trying to help, you know, girls all over the world. Yeah, lives. She's so I think now she's going to university. But, you know, be even before that she was she traveled with UNICEF to Chad. And she was meeting up. With children who were forced out of school due to the Boko haram conflict and helping these girls get back on their feet through education. Like, they were so displays. Yeah. It's just so powerful for a team to be helping other children. So I know you had a few minutes. Carleen to chat with Mizuno about how she describes her role with UNICEF today. And here's what she had to say this came. My miserable is being voiced to win. And the use my story to highlight. What many children have been little old wet the is suffering unchaste and the allies also? Glenn recognized with you in sleep has been going on the wall. The specially is supporting areas in emergency where children can get -education. So UNICEF is trying to help them and providing them with all the materials in needed and facilities. Of course. So I shop in that field trips and witness the act to one situations and Yeddhi of what they is hear from them and try to defer those messages and tell those stories by myself on their behalf to decision makers to bulletins to anyone really who can help them. Well, how for? Shining light on this. Let's take a short break to shut out one of our sponsors. Hey, curley. And what's topping your mother's day wishlist breakfast in bed, or what do you got a hell? No. It's hands down the molecule air purifier. I am like a walking facial tissue these days. I literally need to blow a knows even before we record because I'm so stuffed up. Oh is it because it's allergy season right now. Or what allergy season the neighbors doing Renos, dust everywhere? Like, so tell me more about molecule what does it do? So molecule doesn't just collect pollutants on a filter like the old school happe- filter which has been around for like seventy years. It's the only air purifier. That destroys allergens and pollutants on a molecular level, even viruses bacteria, gaseous, chemicals and mold. So you're really creating the purest error possible as opposed to just trapping it on a filter writing at their right? I like that molecule doesn't look like a traditional air purifier at kind of.

And I recorded the entire thing when I was in the store. Husband go with you. He did actually. And you might hear them on the Mike, but I had a host her name is she ho and she works at Clayton oppo. But she's just like she's a local resident of Tokyo and she took me shopping. She showed me like from all the brands what the hot products are like what the editors horde when they go there what she herself buys. So it was really really fun. We had to do a part two. So the partout is coming next week. You gotta hang tight on that one. It's going to be worth the way. I get to look at all my products. Yeah. Dan so much to talk about today. We have an amazing headliner guests who we've teased already in. That's Felicity Jones. We're gonna start our conversation with Phyllis city sharing. What her aesthetic was like back in high school? Her first memories of beauty before she became a mega movie star. I read that you've always loved me. Tell me in your earlier days growing up. What what were some of the beauty products you'd use? What types and what looks gives a picture of what you were in back in the day. Back in the day. Well, Leone I mean, I was wearing things like a collection two thousand Clem scar. Doesn't mean anything to anyone have in England. It was it was kind of like the go-to brand when you about I didn't think even exists now when you vote fourteen fifteen and my my parents, quite strict on note worrying too much makeup declare scar was a way of getting around that. Yeah. And then I'll I just loved experimenting. We used to go to this cl- like an indeed don'ts club on Wednesday night. What was it was cooled snobs? Okay. In Birmingham, where I grew up. And it was a big Naito. And because I went to go school. So it'd be the time when you you'd kind of like see is. Yeah. It was a fun evening. And I remember a group of goals would get ready together at someone's house and go out, and we'd all be wearing funny colored blush. And Aisha does that about Yati ways loved a loved sued? If they I trying to do the eyeliner flick. I started doing that kind of in my late teens. I'm obsessed with three French film in French cinema. And yeah, Joan code and trying to imitate those kind of French female, maybe solve the cat. I that's the bath. Yeah. Speaking about makeup products. I also read that you're fan of clay poke conceal her. I am as well as the best. What do you think makes it so magical? I try to explain this to people. What what do you think sets it apart? I think hits the consistency. And that she stays throughout the day found that with them with wearing DiPoto products is. That they all absolutely brilliant. When you put them on this still there at the end of the day and a lot of products just sort of disappear will they so control skin. But but with the concealed I think just it's coverage is exit. An it looks like you've had a really good night's sleep. When you property have do you? Remember who turned you onto it was I'm what it was one of those products. That was always make apologists bags. Yes. Growing up, and you know, walking in film and television. They would always have that that kick conceal. Absolutely. And so let's talk about the event that you're here for power of radiance with CLYDE oppo. It's the first time that they've launched this initiative. What what's your take? How do you feel being involved in it? I think is just really important that big accompanies take on these these social responsibilities. The whole concept of BT is shifting so much in such a much more positive direction. And I think beauty is very much about the inside as well. As the outside ending the outside is. Is is is an expression of what's happening on the inside. Anyway. Yeah, it's not just this office. It's very much about what is it that makes someone radiant where is it that makes you be able to shed that radiance with other people, and I think that's very much an inefficient that one has about one south and about self care. I mean, that's such a huge politics BJ. Now, isn't it? Absolutely. How do we look after us? Let's pause for a moment to show some love to one of our sponsors. Jill I think it's time for a check in a homeboy about why it's well, it's almost halfway through the year. And I thought I'd check in and see how your word of the year is going if you recall back in January, you were all inspired by Marie condo. And your word of the year was to minimize I've been in.

I yeah, I mean because I'm traveling so much I really have to pay attention to looking off device off because you can quickly get very drained from being on flights and in different environments and always say it can be nightmare fuel skin. So well, what's been brilliant is always coming out and walking with Klay DiPoto Tae? And and being in Tokyo is the I've I've got on board with the whole facial, massaging. Yeah. Little instruments. They lost time. I came. I it's a little facial mass lodger that I become obsessed with because it's actually really relaxing in the morning. Way copying really Kogi, and you just call. And even if a new is that this instrument that I use on my face, and I'm walking with a makeup artist at the moment for these couple of days, and she gave me a tip that you have to push everything up. You have to train them to go on this morning. I was practicing right routine. Right. So don't go back to go up. Yeah. Yeah. I I need all the hacks right now. But. How to stay awake? Plane. Yeah. How 'bout perfume or hair with what kind of products? Do you love? I I'm I really love deans and that was a tip from a makeup artist. I what with on the basis of sex. I actually and she got me onto that products. And it's leaving conditioner occurs. The end of your obviously, having head blow dried and of different styles full for sheeting and does get has has a hard time. So I put on leaving conditioner in this very easy one that they do like a spray the spray. Okay. So his motioning spray. So. Known visually. You have to explain. Yes, that's been fantastic. And then puff. You gms. I love dip TC. Which is a very obvious very very old French company, and I've always loved sense for time. Is there one in particular? They do send cooled sixty full. Okay. Got I adore which is not too sweet to flowery hit a little bit more Muskie. Okay. This is a curve ball. I'm gonna throw you. What would be on Jin ourselves tops? I've seen nothing. Well, she does that she love nine line. That was really only in the discussions. We have interesting Johnny and Tom's of kind of heroin may call. Oh, really and get initially. We were trying we we thought. Okay. Shall we? Go in a direction of, you know, adding ham pieces sort of having long Platz almost a bit sort of like dreadlock at one point actually Gareth Edwards. The director was very clear that he felt that it should be as simple as possible. And then I that really unlocked a whole kind of appearance was that it should be it should feel very relatable and very easy. And so then we started looking oversleep at a Princess layer. We liked the idea of the bums. And then we thought well, why don't we just give her input on the back? Right. And then just keep the head, and my my natural Kulla and then with the makeup it was about we just did. That sheet which I didn't quite how she managed to get hold of this in the galaxy. But she did she seemed to have a coal island offense. Somewhere on. So we use that. And then just Dulken Mayans skin lightly because she's someone who's been outside a lot and to feel sort of weathered. Hopefully, she worth onscreen. Thank you should have that with her as well someone pouch. And you you've played a lot of strong characters. Most recently, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg. Can you tell us about that experience? I yeah, it was phenomenal actually shooting. It was in Montreal Canada. And we also we loved it has a great time. Great the food the food is amazing and the restaurants, and we were very happy cost. I have to say. And that we were out there for probably for about eight weeks, and before we went out to shoot we went to Washington, and we met wreath for the first time on her nephew Daniels superman had written the script. So she'd been involved very much in in all of the Genesis of the project, but it was it was a magical thing to be a portal, celebrating respect against bug and husband Monte, gins bug who well as we all know, she is just phenomenal in her strength and determination in the face of such a horrible adversity is is is incredible. And do you look for that in a character that you're going to play, and you know, those certain qualities or what you look for. And what would you like to play next what sort of character? Yeah. I it's it's what hits you I like to keep changing. I didn't like to get stuck. Doing one thing. I think the so much that you know, in control of the next obviously in the certain things that come through whatever, you whatever you doing. But I it depends on what I'm sort of reading at that at that time. But I I d- I like things that have I guess an edge of people wanting to see them that comes into play when I'm looking at a film. I think where is this going to sit in the world. Yeah. So there's a few questions. I asked myself when I'm taking on a role on the director as well as pivotal because so much of the the field of the film is down to that person. So you've been busy working on this event. And and traveling and jet-setting what will you do next week? What will you do to relax? Well, when I'm at home, I tend to like saying friends, I love going to off gathering is love swimming.

#181 Felicity Jones: On Playing Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"The. Hello and welcome back to control out delete hosted by me and gawain very excited for today's guest. As I always, I'm every week just love every single gas. That comes on this podcast. Today's guest is Felicity Jones, the brilliant actor she's known for many things being in the worst witch playing Ethel she's being in Spiderman to the tempest amounts to calls and rogue one Star Wars story and many other amazing films. I loved her performances Jane hawking in the film, the theory of everything alongside at red main, and she was nominated for a BAFTA and all Skar and a Golden Globe and an two thousand sixteen she received the BAFTA Britannia award for British artist of the year today. I'm interviewing flippity about her newest role in an amazing film. Could on the basis of sex. It's a bio pic about supreme Justice Ruth beta Ginsburg, aka the notorious, AVI, Jay, she is a full on icon, an eighty five she still remains one of the most progressive hopes that we have and just such an amazing women who has really trail blazed and fought for gender equality. There's also been a documentary out recently about all BG, which has been such incredible box office heads. So the timing. Couldn't be better this film on the basis of sex to to becoming out. I found the film very moving. I did cry lot during it. It's an amazing empowering story of a woman who just doesn't give up. And it's also a love story. She had such an incredible relationship with her husband Marty who was played by on how much in the film. And it's also a very interesting and moving story about a mother and daughter, and how different the mother and daughter are. Considering the times in which they grew up. The script was written by Ruth beta Ginsberg's, nephew Daniel, St. Pullman and Ruth bait against bug was really supportive of the film. She opened up a lot apparently and really was very transparent with her personal life and about the behind the scenes of job, and it was directed by the brilliant Mimi leader. So hope you enjoyed this interview. We just chatted about the film. I love the film so much, and I really recommend you going to see it. It's really timely. It's important. And it's also really quite feel at the end. So I hope you enjoyed this episode. If you enjoyed it, please. Do you leave a rating or a review on ITN's? I always really appreciate that say the other people confined discover the poed cost say thank you again. And here it is. I love the film so much. Thank you fantastic. I'm with the amazing list Jane's he plays estate against the notorious RB, and she is notorious she's phenomenal. What she's achieved? Yes, fascinating. How she's become such a punk icon in her from probably from her early eighties. The Netflix documentary has just come out as well, hasn't it? Yeah coincidence. We actually we were making film at the same time as they were making the documentary. And when I went to Washington to to meet Justice Ginsburg, I also saw an interview that they were doing with her for the documentary, and we shed some of their footage that had some they had some only footage of Ruth Monte on their honeymoon. And that was incredibly useful for all me. And I in in playing I bet 'cause I watched the film in a preview, and I and overseen very lucky to get to see the film before it's out. And I thought there'd be other people in the in the cinema. I was on my own just watching it. And I cried the the hallway through as anyone else said that to you is a common response. We'll have said that it's very emotional, particularly at the end when they see Justice Ginsburg coming up the steps of the supreme court. And I think it's because they understand what she's gone through to get to the point that she's at and seeing all the doors that was Lambda in her face seeing the triumph over adversity and her incredible diligence and determination. So then when you see her at the end, you just think how your your incredible. So incredible. I mean, meeting her real life. I mean, what was that? Like, well, it is it was it was definitely initially you feel when you meet someone like that go to think of all sorts of very clever. Intelligent. I want them to really like site me right now with things like me. I like you ready, but it's interesting because you sort of functioning on T levels because you you'll meeting someone passive. First time. But also knowing that you're going to play them, you're watching them very closely, and you're paying off on all these known verbal cues and all that EDA sink. Crissy's. But but going up to meet for all of us because I went with me lead to the director. And I went with all me plays my husband in the foam, and and our producers, and and it was about building that trust alternate. The I think you don't want someone you're playing who is going to see the foam at the end of it to feel in any way exploited. And so it was a it was a two days of visiting her in her offices going to see her in her home. I spent time with just one on one. She showed me her in. We went into her bedroom. And I saw her desk, which is about half meter away from from her bed, which shows you the level of dedication with which she's she's worked that if she's inspired in the middle of the night. She can jump up and write something down. But also, she's just so open. She was incredibly giving to us, and it was complete transparency. And and. I think because her nephew written this screenplay, Daniel steep woman. She already had that initial trustees. That's amazing because you played an incredible role in the theory of everything one of my favorite films. You played Jane, which was she alive as well. When you yes. Yes. Still she's still very much alive and kicking. I have actually played a dead real person who was deadly ternan who was dickens's mistress mistress's, always such explosive term relationship. Say was a common word for so long. Yeah. Exactly. But so this is the third person actually exists that that I've that I played it doesn't get any easier. I was gonna just all that. A you just kind of like, oh, I know I've got this down. Now think that would be the case that you refill it. Okay. I've done I've done so much. This should be just a walk in the park. But now, I think it's because of the the emotional impact of playing a real passiveness that you can't take it on lightly. You have to be very thorough. You you must become a bit. Like a detective, you're working. What are the motivations that have led this person to the to the to the point that they've reached when you're playing? Yeah. Because when I watched the film, I literally left the cinema. And this hasn't happened to me for so long. I felt like I wanted to be more like her, and I felt like I wanted to be just boulder Brava just stand up for myself more had actual physical kind of. Packed in. Obviously you played. So did that stay with you? Absolutely. And I think that's what was so important about making this foam was we we don't have many stories like that where exactly that you want people coming out of of seeing it and feeling emboldened feeling a little bit happy feeling more optimistic about about gender equality feeling that they that the sky's the limit. And and she definitely has that effect on news. Is you feel a courage to be yourself? I think because she has because she hasn't wavered from that. And she's managed to chief such great things as you take great hope in seeing her because in some films, you have like the montage and like the protagonist is doing. Well. And you're like, oh, maybe they won't maybe they will this one very realistic. She really it wasn't easy. And there was so many knock backs and as a view, you'll just so frustrated with her I think in in many ways. When I read the script. I thought reads like a sports film in the sense of something like rocky way, you've got someone who is having to keep pushing back who keeps being dismissed. He keeps some things not going according to plan. And so by the end of the foam, it is almost that. She makes a touchdown that she she she wins out in the end. But it's it's hard one and it true to how her life was. It was a struggle from the very beginning. She was discriminated against on every front gender for her religion for for one point early on. She lost a job because she was pregnant so all of that injustice, galvanized her to fight against injustice from the people, and it was so moving and bits because even though we look back and think, wow, it was lightly different than with how they treated women at hall, for example. But for me, it really homage home that actually the so much of it still going on. And when she's in the office sang all the. That people said to her. I mean, I know friends of mine now who have been judged because they've been pregnant or like it still lingering. I think that's why it's a it's an important story to tell think as we saw with the metoo movement last year, and we were making the film at the same time. It just gave more force to the to the story. We were telling because that obviously has been great change. But there still further change to go. And so much of the film is about how men and women worked together to effect that change. And I think that is the key is the ultimate we're going to be much stronger together and the men have to help in in making sure that women get into those top positions of power in insuring. Both men and women I think huge aspect of it is child care is is traditionally childcare does fall on women, which then means they don't progress into those high positions of power in the workplace. So how do we make working life much easier for both? Men and women who have children, and I think that will create a more equal landscape. Yeah. And I love the vet swear, you all Reese is basically teaching a seminar with kind of some young feisty kind of very intelligent students. And also her own daughter was just I mean, she didn't hold back, and you see just time moving on is really exciting. Yeah. Interestingly wind steep woman who wrote the screenplay his respect against bike nephew. He said at first he struggled over Jane's character finding how do I how do what's my way into this character? And somebody suggested that he write as if it is Reuss granddaughter Clara who also went to Harvard who is in her twenties. And and that was that unlocked something for him. So that's why Jane feels very very relevant in contemporary. But it's a it's it was such a. So read that you get to explore a mother daughter relationship as well in cinema. That's often relationship that gets a little cost to one side and some of my favorite scenes of those scenes because it's it's it's a relationship to see love those things because it wasn't glossed over a tool there was some moments that were quite uncomfortable, and they were showing that ugly sides, and they were fighting with each other. Yeah. In in some screenings that we've had when when Keighley who plays my daughter brilliantly in the foam, Jane fights back at her mother. You sort of get this punt my response in the audience. They will go. We should say to your mom. I know it's not that you me. It's like cutting d is nice to see and to see that would be so engaged emotion. Is he said, yeah, I know so many James I mean, I was one one. Yeah. Exactly. But also, I know I said at the beginning I cried the whole way through I think I'm just like really salty as well. Because it's a love story, isn't it? And I mean on me hammer plays her husband Marty, and he's kind of just like a cool feminist guy and not that you should get sticker trophy for being like, a nice, man. But back then it was a kind of rare. Well, it was very unusual. They base very ambitious. They both love their jobs and they worked out a way to make it work and within the household, but it was definitely that was not the norm often. So very recently. The one was very much the woman stayed home and bought up the children. And so they were fighting privately as well as on every frontage, but he it's been really interesting response to his character. And seeing how I think some people find it, quite alienating. Because it it is a it is a masculinity that we haven't really seen much. Seeing man be very strong insecure in his own achievements. And therefore being able to support his wife. Yeah. And the so many amazing scenes where he's just in the background there. And he could say something, but he kind of decides not soon he just let her shine. And I just found that really emotive in amazing with us very true to how the relationship was. He was incredibly bright. And and I think just enormous respect for her deem name respect for and the bit where she ends up doing double the work 'cause he falls ill. Those bit reminded me of that quite which is like Ginger Rogers about how she does what Fred Astaire does backwoods in veal's like it's funny that she's just doing things kind of quite naturally for both of them and didn't probably get much credit at the time. I think it's absolutely what she takes on our points. And and the lack of selfishness as well like the kiss is is. Such an important part of character that she that she was able to do that and had had a dexterity and ability to as you say only do her own work. But also, but also his I think that is it is important. That's why so important to celebrate her because of those reasons because it's so easy. Four men to take center stage four men to be the focus and traditionally women have always been the lights shining on the men, and is very unusual film that it's the other way round. It's so true. Because I think a lot of stereotypes and narratives around career women normally they don't they don't necessarily have children or partners. They don't really have much of a home life. It's more just like career. She kind of had all well, I love at the end of the film that three through enormous I've coming enormous difficulties by the end, she has a relationship intact. She is successful in career, and she gets to walk off into the sunset, and that's very rare. So many female herons have to die at the end of the phone with it has to be some up for this success. And and it is it's deeply revolutionary, isn't that sense totally? She's made it work for herself and made it work because her Monte worked alongside each other. Because she could only do it. No one does anything completely on their own this you need support. Whether it's from, you know, sibling or parent or or partner, and I think that's what was so important is that I don't think you can have it all on your own. I think you need to you what by working together. Then then you can both he enabled her. Yes. Have it all in some way? Yeah. Actually, he they sorta took interns initially at the beginning of his career when he was doing credibly while he was attacks. Louis she moved for him. She in in in some respects made quite great sacrifices to enable him. And then you sit later in his career. He does the same for her. He was pushed onto the supreme court. He was a great advocate of hers. And and it was just interesting seeing within their lifetime seeing that shift because we're still shifting on. We that's still a conversation around the household. I think it's new terrain. I think I think much more feel with my friends, my family, there's much more of a parody of of domestic responsibility. I do think what is really key is that we start to see that piracy expressed in equal pay in working environments. But but it's still definitely definitely have to go. I think is men and women working together to break down the patriarchy. Yeah. Have you enjoyed having a film while you all within the row, you'll sort of doing activism because you all by having your platform and speaking out you carrying on the conversation. It's it's definitely. The key. When I'm looking at in looking at films. I'm always interested in what is the storytelling and more. Is that story going to have because I do think not on its own idea, but I d- alongside political shifts. I think culture can be very influential in in the way people think can and hopefully people would if this and then may think slightly differently about gender politics. Definitely part of the reason for making it totally because sometimes I go to events around feminism. And I you know, as part of my job, I do love that. I feel like the men in my life. Actually, don't go to these events. And I kind of want to bring them along with me and kind of share the stats show the stories, I think, that's absolutely key. I think it is. How do we come together? I don't think it should be seen as as a woman's problem. Because it isn't. It's universal problem. It's universal issue. It's women's rights human rights alternately. And I think definitely it's how do we how do we collaborate and and overturn old fashioned gender stereotypes because re spayed against bike was offering just as much against the diminishing of women as it was a about men. I mean, the case they deal with the mind looking after his mother, which wasn't legally recognized as a possibility. And when you see kind of angry women in inverted commas like on Twitter being like annoyed it's almost like films like this and needed to show. Why people are still very hurt because those scenes were for its own pool. The hall leader person his name, he's like the. Griswold result. He's he's he makes the women defend and explain why they are trying to be a lawyer, and it's really painful to watch. And I feel like that wasn't that long ago. So people are still carrying this feeding projection absolately, I think it's it's more relevant than ever. And I think every a lot of frustration. And as we've seen with the metoo movement, particularly entertainment industry, there was a huge amount of abuse in the industry that was that was being considered as acceptable. And what we seem with technology, which has obviously enabled everyone to have a voice that that I do hope that that kind of institutionalized abuse will will be thing of the past. Yeah. And I I wasn't sure. Whether to ask questions, I'd never want to feel like it's like, really cliche. But oversee the director of the film is a woman and not that that in itself is like a headline, but it would be with. If it wasn't for this film. Do you think I think what was key in in the?

It felt that you you had to the direct hat to be someone who had empathy for that situation. And Mimi leader was the was the puff person to do that totally because just some stories that need that connection. It would be wit in some ways to tell a story. Someone's just so remove from it. You know, I have -solutely and she had come through the film industry and has been in walking entertainment for many years and his hat to battle against the very male dominated environment and says she knew intimately what what reset gone through. Yeah. Do you feel kind of Brearley at just like in a well into the moment because this is such a huge role is does it feel ready like career defining an exciting, and you go back on this time and just thinking? Wow. Maybe when I'm very old lady. I think you never know she never know the impact of something until years later d you probably when you back, I just I just what's been. Wonderful in the last couple of years is being able to dictate the kind of stories that the dime. Telling I think that an increasing these seeing the industry, the entertainment industry's changing. So hugely oversee act is having their own production companies. And and that has been one of the most exciting aspects is being involved in the development of stories and deciding the stories that get into the world, which definitely went on came into acting. That was never that was never seen as opposed to -bility does feel it more options now especially with net flicks. Except Tra well, we're just massively shifting landscape. And definitely there's a feeling that the old the old rules. Don't apply. Yeah. So just lastly, what about coming up at can be professional or just personal anything. Well, I just finished making a phone. Call aero notes which is coming out the end of the year, which is about a two hotel balloonists. Who go on a dead devil trip to see how high they can get in the hot air balloon and the stories of one of survival and challenging whether they will come back. But it's a really action. Yes. Yes. That was such huge for I wanted to with. She's very much an action heroine. Jeff training. I did. Yes. I did. It was really interesting doing acrobat IX training, and I was working very closely with someone who's who's official job title is an acrobat. It's just such a such a such a special job title. But I'm we were working on trapeze. And and that sort of thing and just e they idea was just feel very familiar and comfortable in the air. And it was great to put some of that skill into into when we shooting the foam. Wow. I just for some reason the greatest showman just came into my head that scene was Zach for on. And yet, I'm just thinking acting really crazy like you just have to become an expert, and suddenly, yeah, you become you have a small amount of knowledge and a lot of things get pub, Chris. Yes, he wants to be millionaire. You'll be. Thank you. Thank you so much, and I feel very smug lives in the film because the post is all over the cheap. And I'm like I've seen this scene. The been unkind kief such Levin fee. Thank you so much.

# 93 On The Basis Of Sex / Capernaum / Deep Impact

"This week on truth and movies. We pass judgment on the roof beta Ginsburg legal bio pic on the basis of sex little soiree our way of saying welcome. Then we cross examined the cannon jury prize winning drama Capone, and in film club, the nineteen ninety eight disaster epic deep impact in the dock was poor box office performance. Miscarriage of Justice the bright side. All have high schools named after us. All rise is truth movies. A little white lies podcast. It's Michael Lita hair seeking critical council from Hannah Woodhead from oil is hey and analyze it. Eleanor. Welcome back, and you so Hannam it's been a while. You seems to be a while. Anyway. Yeah. It's been been three or four weeks seen you since you went to Sundance. Yeah. Deliver the final. It was very very cold. Best thing. I saw was the scene in Joon Hoke Ville trailers just come out going to be out in may. I think in the United States hopefully sometime over here we really beautiful fill but love and loss and going to be a second one. She's doing a sequel it's been planted a two parter, and yeah features Tilda Swinton daughter honor, burn Swinton. I hope I'm pronouncing that right in her first film. She's like, Mike. And so yeah. Keep an eye out for that one a souvenir Coweta him more about that. But let's get to this week's films up. I we have on the basis of sex. Felicity Jones stars in this bio pic of US supreme court Justice Ruth, beta Ginsburg, the film focuses in on landmark case that's in the nineteen seventies kick started the battle against gender discrimination and launched Ginsberg's legendary legal career, but first she must graduate from Harvard Law School way in the nineteen fifties. She was one of the few women in a class of five hundred men. This is only the sixth year women had the privilege to earn a Harvard law degree this little Suare is our way of saying welcome my wife, Harriet, an I are very glad all nine of you of join. Let us go around the table. And each of you ladies report who you are where you're from. And why you're occupying a place at Harvard? Could've gone to a man Sam Waterston. There is dean Griswold possibly the villain of the piece you wrote the review on the basis of sex. Tell us is timely by should we care about Ruth, Bader Ginsburg? And does this do Justice? No, each definitely care about respect Ginsburg. She's this larger than life figure in kind of US, political, legal, culture and pop culture. Now, she's become this unlikely pop culture cone, she is nearly ninety. I think and this firebrand tiny Jewish American woman who's just kind of. I think. I'm struggling bit. Because I watched the Ruth beta his documentary on my flight back from Sundance, which is very very good film. Also out pretty soon. Jeez. And I'm struggling him. But what was in that? This is a film that's been in the works for a long time. They've been, you know, saying, oh, we should make respect against by OPEC invites. I can see from the notes and Natalie Portman is going to be in. And also that to me makes way more sense of casting choice than Jones, not only Portman is Jewish and been very vocal about representation of Jewish women in film. And then they. For some reason. The I think, you know, there's a market for it. I just don't necessarily thing. This is the film the sheet is of so the film that I deserve a fan of roof bait against. Say that let's see it's deficiency is very rudimentary. I think it's a very like a potted history is kind of going from her days as a loss cheetan facing dance. I'm Waterston who's doing his best kind of like, I'm the sheriff, these pots and your woman. And so it goes through that all the way up until it's about like a twenty year period that covers quite a long time. And there's a lot that's kind of Gaza. So I got into like a history repeat against, but there was this very strange period. Where after she finished law school didn't graduate from Harvard. She had to move to New York because her husband HOV, New York. So I think she graduated from Columbia might be wrong. Anyway. So she got your from law school and then couldn't get job. No firm in New York with high ahead despite her having graduate top of the cost because she was a woman so she had to teach little and then that's how she she ends up getting involved in the sex skirmish in case, which changes her life and also the kind of face of sexual discrimination in the United States. But they're just trying to do a lot in this trying to kind of crime in everything and kinda guy for that real like mass market. Like, if you know who made gives big is, this is the only film you need to watch. And it's just I think needs to be more focused and more kind of, you know, women in the city tries to have it all is like such a kind of old, you know, boring. The section who feels like it could be madman for women low. Miss mazel. This is pretty interesting scene where she's going for job interview. And the guy into being her says, you're woman mother and achieve to boot s- just seeing that she's put this triple issues to Allen. What did you think of this film? Few engine re and watch the documentary. I didn't really know much about her. So that was re interesting, especially love, the ending when we get to the actual case that she does that was freeing thing for me to go back to what you were saying it's a movie that doesn't is just like a thorough review. And I think that's a problem in the film because you watch this, and it doesn't necessarily all really hang together. You overseas all about sexism? But that's just because as this woman Roberta Ginsburg, she encountered an insane amount of sexism. Because of the choices issue is who she was and the movie tries to put it all in the film. And you're like, well, actually, if you I mean, it's incredible as she managed to carry all down shoulders, but the movie I don't think has the as what it takes to handle all of it. And so it just feels going to seem that try to dress those sixes issues, but in a way, I think in a more realistic film. It would feel more like a pervasive thing that she's aware of and she's just dealing with every single day of life. And he. It feels like scenes to illustrate one aspect of sexism. And every time she's like a little bit surprised and disappointed. I'm like, I don't believe that. That's how Roberta Ginsburg is. I think she's just very very aware of how it's everywhere and don't let little scenes what she learned something. And just like, that's what makes it a very Hollywood type film of each of these really big scenes where she I will get humiliated or she power walks out of a room after recess, and it's just like, well, actually would have been fun not fun with horrible. But like interesting to see the reality of living the society because I don't think the movie really shoes as I rem- realistic, pervasive like sexism that will be. So I can't even imagine living in a situation like this every single day you wake up and people treat you like this paints in broad strokes off to me you comes off to almost like a primary school history lesson. Yeah. Not much. Not much in the way of complexity to it. We mentioned in Griswold, our most and he's very much played villain. And there are these characters portrayed as equally go bad. And they focus in so much on the home life. If we've made against Bergen husband Martin, he's played army hammer in possibly the the easiest most woke role, you can take because Ginsburg is a adad who has a job, but supporting his wife every line. He says, you're mazing. And everyone that I knew how was your day. How many seen start within saying how was your day today at least five or something really couldn't still? This is clearly an awards position performance, Felicity Jones, but hammer is just happy being the best dad wasn't in cinema history in this. I like give me pep talk. I know what you think of in this. Okay. Right. So. We fade against Martin Ginsburg have like one of them is kind of very mounting stories. I think they absolutely joys a couple of me they met call edge. And he was like smitten with her thought she was just the best. And and this film is very much like like that. You know, it's just this guy. He's just like God damn lucky as man in the world. I really found that very charming. But yeah, it's kind of like a mile legal thriller, or am I very much film? And maybe they should have just like picked one because I think there's enough in that kind of romance. That would be an interesting film about very supportive husband who has everything handed on a plate. He I think he went to Harvard as well. And he becomes one of the best tax lawyers in new, and you know, everything just seems to come quite easy for him. Whereas she's just like drowning in sexual discrimination Ninety-seven too. I think that would have been interesting film as well. I'm hammer. I think you know, he he does a good line in licking toll and handsome and slightly vacant. One of the things I do find quite funny about this film in general is so clearly on paper should have been like an awards content and just in realities just you know, who's giving the best performance in. This film is is just in theory. Going for gold as this kind of. What would you say he's Melville historical figure? He's the head of the SEO. You. SEAL you. Ginsburg is petitioning him to add that name that huge of civil rights lobbying named to the case. And he's just tearing apart all scenery around it. He's like chewing, and he and his never me why if you wash documentary it does go into why they call her this. He's just like I like Sergei is across the room. And I was like. Did that seem? What is kind of like a history? Like, oh, yeah. We go way back. How? Great. But he's this really fake looking stuff strutting. Why is no hard just like make it better? Interesting. I like complex he he's bijon her side. But he knows the law, and he knows what's what can work and what work and. Yeah. So he's he's more interesting than most others his threat is what was most most intriguing for me because the time was very much on the side of black Americans civil rights and his question is how is this as important or more important than that fights? Yeah. And just the film doesn't really pick into their. I think it's like a not an argument for another day. Yeah. I think that that is the most kind of relevant to today's society this idea of like picking your battles. And like, what should we be angry about, and I think my favorite scenes in the film, the ones that he does Abe is that house and the kind of coaching Ruth for the trial. And that's one of the kind of real energy is in this film. Like, no seeing him push her and push buttons. And it's just so desperate to be this real life, affirming like you. Go girls like film, and it could have got more meat on. And I think there's this this one really interesting line in the film where I think it's just character. Who says that if you lose this case, you said a precedent for them to basically make sexism like even more law is and that's really fascinating from us perspective. Because actually this is what happened. With a very famous case. I forget the name. I just read about it yesterday that basically confirm Sigara Gatien knows in America in the fifties. And this is exactly where someone tried to go to co two in the same thing like someone that something that was really unfair to black people and we lost. And so therefore set a precedent for every similar case later to say, well, they lost in this case. Therefore, you got with this time and imagine being Jewish such a huge danger. If when she's doing this case in the film, and it's only mentioned very briefly in the film, but it would have been so like interesting to buy more because he would really give the sense that of the challenges in this case and not just like issue going to do is she going to say, the smart thing, she doesn't history will be so different in a terrible way. That'd be nice to see more of that. Perhaps more compelling as a legal throw than anything else. But you have to wait sometimes put some scores on this. I think it's maybe threes across the bows is quite hard for me to be extremely critical this film because I always liked to kind of champion films directed in Britain by women or this is written by Reese nephew. I believe. Great to see me leader gay had used to make another kind of high profile film that being said, of course, you know, film critic. GT's the film, but it is just very GCC history lesson kind of vibes. It's not a film. I could ever see myself watching again. And I think he just kind of left maybe one wanting more from it. More of anything really more man's more legal thriller, just pick a lane. Yeah. Donna. I would say sort of the same thing. But I don't know if I'm that positive about it because I feel like it's such an important an incredible thing that she's done nothing to movie soul of almost trivializes by making it so Hollywood. And I think that's very dangerous because he sets in plays into the idea that. Oh, yeah. Like you've done this with fine. Actually, we're not. I mean, we know that things could go back to be very very very terrible. So I at the same time it's gonna probably teach people about this thing that even happened. I didn't even really know about this few months ago. But at the same time, I'm afraid I might like saw trivialize her and also make her dislike very empty icon thing, which can you please stop talking about her this way. Like, it's very embarrassing. Like she wants. Let's not say, oh, yeah. RPG icon like oh my role models. I mean, those school something interesting prevalence at America. And I think a lot of people to the mean vacation of politics and turn. Being political figures into kind of like, you know, just these empty Twitter memes and things and it's important to remember with a film like this is not ever going to be the whole story. And also at the supreme court, traditionally is a very kind of conservative place. It's hard to really be progressive when you Precourt Justice, and obviously respect to the law, and I think she's a lot more kind of liberal than a lot of supreme court justices. But I think to get back picture of the way that the American legal system works and kind of how so of conservative and right wing is maybe we should. Okay. Amenity about her. I think it gives you a fuller picture of what's going on. Okay. Well, yes, I really this is not really the bio pic, maybe this figure. Say in patient three and Patou's both enjoyments. And in retrospect, it's it comes across his failed Oscar bait rarely today. And we've had a few of those few. Spring is coming the Paramore's will be hey free. Hey, free. But that's only that's on the basis of sex up next. We have a can prize winning drama co Kapanen. In a Lebanese courtroom young boy, Amazon is suing his parents who bringing him into the world in flashback. We see the events that led us hair from saints Poesie strict upbringing as attempts to run away and starts in your life for himself from his family. This film premiered at countless Jit comb the jewelry price but little white lies own David Jenkins says it's like a feature-length charity appeal only less fun now Elena. Agree with David or coast, but tell us about this film. So we stay with this kid callsign news about twelve. I mean, we don't even know for sure because he doesn't know when he was born and he lives in Lebanon in basically, the slums and he's having about six thousand sisters, and parents were not very nice kinda violent basically have no money at all. And he has to try and make money some ways like selling fruits on the street or sending anything that he can find reading then Monday, his sister's like very young she is about to be married off to some much much older man, who's probably in his late twenties thirties, apparently that this is a thing in Lebanon over countries like poor countries and Zion doesn't want this to happen because busy she's basically a child, and he's attempts to prevent that set of an incredible. Adventure kind of not in positions that he just has to struggle even more survive because he decides to leave home and to set off to leave all these people were just never been good to him and to try and have a better life somewhere else. And it's not as easy as it sounds. This is not Hollywood phone, and yeah, so this is pretty harrowing portrayed of what it's like to live on the streets in twelve year old, and it's told is this street level film, professional actors, the actor the place is his name. He gives this incredible unschooled performance. Does not have he owns donate every frame of the film, especially because he's he's obviously he's nine actor and ideal back. He who were interviewed. Actually, she told me that this shot insane amount of footage, and she had initi- share like seven eight hour of the film. And there were so many good moments. Obviously because you eat doesn't take very long into the film to realize that this is an incredible child. Who's who's every moment screen is just so honest in role and like an incredible. And obviously, she told me that it was very hard to shut down the film to two hours because there were so many beautiful incredible moments of him screen, and that only such a to me such pleasure in in this film is history. So incredible. You can't help caring about him. But also, I just want to go back to what David said. 'cause I think saying is a feature named charity. Appeal ad is very unfair. Because I think to me charity appeal ad is you see this child who's who's very poor. And he looks at the camera, and you feel bad for him, and you wanna pay money, whatever this is the thing does this notion in those ads of like over in a little bit. You're like look at his porch out his struggling, but he's looking at you right now. And in the film, there's not a moment where we feel so separate from this kids on the contrary like I you see him. You might be like what's going on? Because it starts in the scene where he is in cool to decides to sue his parents for giving birth to him. This isn't sports deployed because he hates being alive so much. And you're like what is what is happening? But then immediately you go back to the beginning of story. And and you so close to him you with him on everything every little trouble that he has every day. Like, how do I make money? How do I wash my sister? How do all these things? So it stops becoming this sort of charity appeal add aesthetic is just like what is it actually like to be on the street every day? It's not like all the problems in the world and poor people who are who don't have anything to. It's like you're on the street. What did you do? And I think that's that's so much more almost valuable. I think than than a charity appeal because it's like we always have this cues is like what can I do? You know, I'm always only away the systemic problems. Like why these people are poor in this world and wars and stuff and then in December like okay stop. You'll the skill. He has nothing to eat. He doesn't have anything to wash. What do you do? He just wants money. It's not hard. And that's why we loved about the movies. Like, it's from twelve year old child doesn't know about politics. Doesn't thing? He only knows is. He was born and from then on his life sucked. Life. And you're like well. Yeah. I mean from sexy of adults or anyone who knows anything about, you know, the society like, well, it's complicated. That before him is not KOMO company, and I'm just alive. And I hated don't wanna be born don't you to me? And I think there's value in. It's not saying you should agree with him. And this is social, but it's like, I don't know it could really long run. Picks today. Just as a rebuttal today Jenkins. Here's review can read on the on the website. But it does have this strong. This is coming from this tradition of cinema, of empathy, y you all very much living with this kid for two hours and seeing him go through these experiences. But it does have an issues movie layer on top of that. Where does looking at these undocumented people living in slums who are just having kids. They count provide for feeling there is a maybe a certain activism later in the film may be edgy Lund on all this work for you. Did it move. You. It's funny. You say that tweet last night saying laughing, quite cold, David Jacobs has been brightly dragged for that that statement on social media as well as yeah. People have tweeted that Severi unfair assessment of the film, and I think is unfair thing does not allow I can say in addition to. You completely on the money. It's quite unfair to the film, but also is over simplification. And anyway, I'm not going to second. Guess David's opinions about this film? My opinion is the kid is great. I like the he's thoroughly unsympathetic at times the way he talks hysterical. He's such a foul mouth on him. And then things he comes out with. But that's the reality of it. I know kids twelve that. He want living on the streets. If anyone has a right to be bag. It's this kid. His life is just relentless misery, and he talks like out Pacino. Is kind of amazing. It just didn't really do very much for me. Tim side. This prompts. The question have I might to kind of dead to this thing, you know, every single day, I read the newspaper go on this image of this thing. And maybe that so me become desensitized to this. And I should be research touching myself. It does kind of in your eyes. I think especially is very easy to turn off. And if he make a conscious efforts going to watch this film cinema than you know, you not turning off you're engaging with that. I think is you know, for me is valuable this idea that cinema can transporters and show us something so different and so far removed from our experiences, and I do really like the the dealer back here. So clearly like positions anes experience. It's not like kind of looking at him. Like, oh, this poor child is like this is happening right now. And this is what's going on? This is the way is and it doesn't kind of fall into the very like much on the sex. It's not sentimental is no. Oh, everything's gonna be okay. For this kid. I think he kind of leave in your like kids like say all the time. It doesn't work out. You don't just get happy ever after this. Well, it's not like any all this is like, you know, this is this is reality and die found refreshing. Yeah, I'm not going to. Here and say negative things about this film. I just didn't work me on an emotional level. And sometimes that's what happens I've won. One one. Going back to what you said. I think. Yeah, it's true. It's not in this Hollywood way because you could still expect a movie like this where the child has all these problems, but he's a child der four he's happy like playing in the street. And and this isn't this is a child who's like, yeah. I could be happy if I had like food and could wash but his is not discharge like the minute. He gets something sort of nice improves on from. He forgets his misery. He's way more realistic in you, don't get to be like, oh, he suffers but he's happy anyway because he's got friends and family like he's miserable. And there's no escape from the, and it's not this kind of like a movie where you're like. Oh, poor people. You know, they find a way we don't. And that's that's what I really like is what he makes it. I think interesting in a way that maybe over films about similar topics on because it's like, yeah, you're forced stay with him. Do a Hiba sees and the way he is not like, oh, you know, we get by. Always like, I don't wanna do this anymore. Let's put some schools on this Elena. I don't know when I when I didn't know anything about it when I went to sit in canvassed free. I guess, and then I think four and five actually because we watched it, and I liked it even more because I was afraid this would we're watching be like, you know, I was like swept up by. But actually we watched and it was like this works. This makes sense. This is amazing. This is like is such a good film as an answer to all these film that I think it's so easy to watch film. It'd be like, well, actually, this is all abased on liberal guilt. Think. Instead, I think it's like a genuine portray of being individuation. And I think yeah, it doesn't give you answers. He doesn't tell you. What should we do about? This doesn't ask you for like your money or anything. It just tells you what it's like to live this way. And I think that's so variable. Coldhearted opinion. No, I I think that is very fad. And it's one I think I will get back, and we watch some point and see if I'm just kind of in a phone call responding to it. Because again, like, you know, some people are very much respective come out with very very glowing reviews of this film. The something interesting here about like, whoa. Connects to is as as critic. I can tell you mention me even later something else pushing abuse moved as I was. But I think that's still defense. Yeah. But no, I mean. Yeah. Threes across the board. Today. I'm just like three everything's fine cinemas fine. Yeah. Deal. Becky, very very talented woman, and she has a long lustrous career in film. I didn't know what to expect with this. I hadn't seen her previous two films. It didn't leave me cold everything tie. Appreciate in. This film reminded me of the craft behind it. Like, I was looking Zane. I was thinking this is a brilliant child performance of looking at the knitting Hlavac you'd been handling these scenes shot in real relocations thinking how well managed this all was there is an incredible scene. I'm only form site from toddler in this movie, which babies history, the sequence what he's given some cheap milk. He takes one seven. It's like what? I say that having a baby myself. Even out of this say the film as a whole was momentary interest for me, probably three three two. But divisive around the table, I will say Kapanen in cinemas this week. So we've had a film about a judge. Joey prize winning film of next. We have an execution in the shape of an asteroid may be. Ten minutes have deep impact film clip. She's more of a chess judge in shape never mind. Our site is a gift won that series. I disease could compromise. But yearly exams from an eye. Doctor can detect them before it's too late. Find an eye doctor today think about your eyes dot com. Sponsored by the American up to metric association. An asteroid is heading towards an NASA program to trillions with surface and ethnic nuclear bomb is humanities only survival note. This isn't Michael Magadan. It's Mimi leaders deep impact based on similar plots. Deep impact took more serious and much less match. Oh approach to the material following the impending extinction. Level of ants from the perspective of a young stargazer TV channels, the president of the United States and the crew of the messiah led by old time, Robert devil. For. If we can get the remaining bombs in that. They should let that comet bigger than a suitcase. I we can't do anything about the little one. But. You know, it just might give them a chance. I was at the coach we didn't have to wait to set the bomb timers until we get closer to earth to raise Houston. We may not have enough life support left to get back into the cargo bay for the news much less to download the comment. Sure as hell have enough propellant after the messiah to to maneuver with. Back on the service. Once we. Down there. We don't. The bright sun. All have high schools named after us. So from deep impact there, which didn't win the battle the box office in nineteen ninety eight against Armageddon. But how has it age? Do we have any tweets Hannah? We do. Yeah. I was tweeting about this film. The other night just kind of reactions that I've seen full, and my friend Camberley replied to my tweet and said the Michio sequence undo this for memory now. 'cause I've lost the tweet. The me the Meteo sequence gave me nightmares as a kid listening. Ten ten. Yeah. There is a really harrowing tidal waves equals in this field off. I would even having read that tweet from Cam. Until he was ten that meant he watched it before he was saying don't do that. Yeah. Tend to not show them this film. It's traumatic very very upsetting is very depressing surreal like I mean. And we're we're gonna die. And I'll say, that's really it's such a fascinating film. Now, first of all that the actual sequence the tidal wave that's caused by the impact is so pre-nine eleven. Title waves crashing of people swept aside. Incredible shots of Washington square park whether old guys playing chess. Yeah. Why are you doing the mental would hit at this point chose this to be your last month? I guess, but I suppose it's just following through with. What is the Downer? Remove our in. Haywire hope is lost. It's about the or specifically America. It doesn't have much international pervy coming to terms. How what will they do infrastructure put in place to rational shouldn't be a lot more weird sex bodies? If the end of the same. Religion stuff. People in the street screaming Jesus is coming. Actually, very old thing that should be fishing. What is in this film? I watch for you too. Yeah. I I was aware of this. I think there's an there is an article. I know there's not all no lies about the kind of the box office from ninety. I was quite young. When this phone came out missed it first time round, but it's like the most kind of nineties casting, you know, you've young Elijah wood with the most have in the world you'd go over to like swanning around. We were just talking about like how old he is. This. Space. John. Like as this cut of young. Buck astronaut Morgan Freeman is the president of Cromwell James Cromwell. Yeah. Forget going off the cast. Aw. That's just a law things going on in this movie of subplots that kind of because it is just like, basically giving you an insight into all these different reactions, and you know, all these different things that I want to try to marry this girl he likes school get her into the bunk. Sorry, if anyone's ever seen that Simpsons episode where is the end the world, which I'm assuming was like as spy by this. Then there's a bunker and Lisa and Marquette and then homeroom time. Anyway, that's I'm related, but does this great the film. I really lights whether I announce the bunker, which is going to be where the people who are going to continue go, and they say if your fifty than you come in. And I was like oh that try to double the baby. Boomer's a lot out of this. So, you know, maybe these by me. I find this fascinating film. We have kernels of great film. And the prediction history is Steven Spielberg wanted to make this. And I think the whole Ilija words threat. The fact that your kid who during your astronomy science class school, you discovered asteroid it's going to hit the anti become almost national slept back without that is a Steven Spielberg film. Everytime. It cuts to the suburbs. And he's riding around his bike with his flannel. Shirt on this. James Horner, piano theme comes in. It's really interesting. Apparently most of that plot was cutout after test screenings. So this film was originally two and a half three hours long because it is a throwback to the towering inferno at cetera films that had big on samba casts, and some central disaster that we look through various is. And you can see the develop very much thought that he'd be getting supporting actor nomination. He's throwing everything into every scene but coming alongside Magadan which is. The big brash macho Michael bay film that sets his career path and just after MAs attacks timber film, which completely spoofs this yawn. Fills that gave mass. Mas tax tool Mateen's me as a child. I had nightmares for years about the way too young to. I think is like if it was a fifteen but very violent. Mas twelve. Twelve. I was absolutely terrified phone gave me not miss views. I saw. An adult, and I was trolling. It's very strange. Very strange. Interlude from all the tags him just feels very old fashioned almost on delivery. When Armageddon which has all of this things that people go to Michael by foreign film, poems. Macho action. Big. That has the big power ballad song behind it. Much more interested in people and infrastructure in politics. The fact that has so many amazing scenes of people staring at ninety s screens computers. Actually, I was surprised because you know, there's so many films where the computer is just completely unrealistic. And here was like. Pretty realistic for the time. I think this probably how the computers would work. I mean, I don't know. I wasn't like at the time. But it didn't look like, you know, I was watching this incredible though, flagrant film where you had. I forget what it's called. But there's a scene where the nuclear weapons are you can control them with a computer. And you choose where you're gonna find them bisecting the country on the on the computer. That's probably not hard. It's not like basement. Realistic. And actually, I read online to actually apparently dipping packed is much more scientifically sound really stake opium getting but at the same time, I feel like this movie, you know, the talking about the one hour where this new and that was interesting to watch as fellas I this is crazy Hollywood moving doing this where people changes probably I want my money back. This is depressing. But at the same time, I don't movie has like what it takes to take something so hopeless in horrible and realistic and into handle it properly, like still all this like music, and all these things, and I'm just like at the movies wealth. Hardly. Would it suggesting is I was just like this is so so horrible and sad and plausible. I mean, you could all die right now. We don't know if you probably wouldn't tell us if that was the case, I don't think Morgan Freeman would like I was waiting to tell you about this because wanted to wait if we could destroy not tell us, and we will fine. Ezio? But yes, I don't think the movies like what it takes to. Then how grave the situation it feels is not like unrealistic enough, usually those movies, the catastrophe movies were more. Like, oh, this is a crazy like tornado thing. What it's never going to happen. And he totally could happen drool as to Roy's could happen. You know, we'll talk about he pack because it's directed by me leader who also directs it on the basis of sex which released this week this at the time was a big shot becoming the new Spielberg in a way it was back pie Spielberg Pawtucket by DreamWorks. But he's by DreamWorks and was the biggest budget givens female there in Hollywood the time. We talked so much about movie jail and female filmmakers, she made this and make pay it forward afterwards. And then sort of went away for a long time. But she's excelled in television during. And that might just been total tutor films and come out kind of Meteo chrome both. Maybe that's the best. I think if you think about him patches a character study than it tightly make sense that she went onto the leftovers. She went onto e r. So I think she really kind of found her groove working in television and getting tell these long-form stories which over years and case, it'd be all. So I don't think this is a case of her, you know, kind of like being put in movie jail bait a bad movie, and it make money, you know, it it did make money not maybe as much money as they thought it was gonna make. But it wasn't a flaw at all. It just lost out to my. Yeah. We will out to my one way or another. But yeah, I think that Meade is a really interesting case, I be fascinating to know kind of war made her come back to do on the basis sex after kind of say long out of the game in ways what remarkable career from deep impact. Two on the basis eggs. I actually to you were saying this was going to be Spielberg film. But I don't know if the Teo Nie character would be the main character Spielberg film. I mean, she's this woman who's a journalist reporter who wants to become the anchorwoman guess, also they all these scenes what she's working in the office. And is this journalists who goes to the in office for babies in school crush nursery? Yeah. India office, it is nine hundred ninety eight Hollywood movie where you see a woman who's working also go baby in the office. And I'm like, I don't know if this would be necessary Spielberg film, you know, any feels like tried to make more the central character in the film, and it feels like quite significant wouldn't be Michael bay film. And I don't know if you would be Spielberg show. And so that's that's one aspect of it. That's a I think was re striking to me quite interesting. I'm just really I don't wanna make sumptious about his career. 'cause I even watching this film. I was just like what happened if you're su- strangers so many. Different narratives going on things that you see way more food see less, and you would think you would see more of the alleged character. It just feels like such a huge project that I don't know what the history was there. Like, I don't know. And she to live at the film. Not. Failure. When I'm just I don't know what Hollywood works at this time. And how it was for her. I don't know how you know because I don't I don't wanna make some Billick. Yeah. In any case from an outside of respect she didn't fail and she should be making movies. Well, I think maybe not compared to much of. I'd love to watch this alongside war the world's which is west makes his disaster movie. And it's post nine eleven so side by side. You don't see very hopeless into, but is human level. Family the day after tomorrow as well. I think that was kind of Monty pimp. The right age for me. O pro again. Come on on contract. Visor bring on jayjay. Well. Say about that. I lost. Deep impact's if you happen to watch it. Now, let us know you think of usual channels at truth in movies on Twitter at truth movies at TC dot com by Email or elderlaw dot com slash podcast section there. Next week.

And at one lucky person is going to get that hall. We've been absolutely obsessed with reading all of the feedback. It's been fascinating to see what you guys have been suggesting the goal of. The listener survey, of course, is that it will help inform our future content. It will help us know which gas you guys really want to hear from so please log on and way in with your two cents. And should we also shout out now to a couple of podcasts? We've been on our pod. Pam is growing. Yeah. It's been so fun. Of course, we mentioned the under the influence podcast that we were on we talked about that last week. We were on a beauty podcast in the UK. We talked about clean beauty products. But we also talked about transitioning from publishing to podcasting and some behind the scenes moments of some of our favorite guests. And then more recently, we were on the dream bigger podcast. That is by fellow Toronto podcasters fat hater she also goes by Steph. Hi, seth. So it's all about how to make it. And honestly, she drilled us on what was on our top shelf. Like, I like I was just going on and on listing. My favorites some of my old favorites and some of my new ones and same with us. So if you guys are up for shopping, honestly that episode is loaded with product Rocco's we'll link to these in our blog and in our show notes. So you guys can click through and hear them if you are interested. So back to my Japanese shopping expedition, the person who I was shopping with her name is she ho Kobayashi. She works in business development at Klay DiPoto. That's how I matter. But she's also she's local she knows all the good places to shop. So she showed me all of the products that all of the other editors horde when they come to Japan. She showed me some of the things that she loves and uses herself. So it was really fun. And all the products were most of them were under fifteen dollars. I think there might have been a couple in here that were closer to maybe twenty or thirty. And so yeah, at the very end of this episode. We're going to tell you which ones we tried and what was worth the spend. So we have a lot of products in front of us. I can't read mostly any of the law. Labels. But I have tried quite a few of them. And we're going to let you in on our impressions of these products. And what was worth the spend at the very end of the episode and some of them you will be able to buy because just looking at this one. This is called the Sanca perfect whip. This is a face cleanser. I actually saw this on Instagram. I was watching an Instagram video one of my favorite bloggers, Jane Eldredge from C of shoes, and she was holding it up. And I was like oh my God. Did she go to Tokyo to? But sure enough I clicked through the Lincoln it was anathemas on. So a lot of these products. I think you will find we'll have them listed all on our blog if you're interested, and we'll add them to our Amazon storefront to which linked to in our show notes. Yeah. Amazing. And I also brought you some cheesecake. I can't read anything on this package. But will you say just it's just Saito? Parlor. Yes, you saw this on Instagram. But so she she ho who I mentioned took me to this Saito parlour. Okay. It's a pastry. Shop in the Ginza district. And it was I it's been around since nineteen o two it started as an ice cream shop. Okay. And so you go in I'm a beauty nerd, so I was just obsessed because I was like oh my God. It's like beauty in the form of pastries and cakes like, the actual Camille of flowers that are on this to Saito like the eye shadow pans, and on the end of the lipstick were all over these little cookies and pastries, and I was just like oh my God. I was obsessed so Q so they also make cheesecake which I brought for you. They have Shiseido branded college and drinks. I brought one for you as well. That's in the fridge. If you wanna have it are you going to eat at I'll take a bite. I'm a little frayed because it does say real real talk firmament that the spire four days ago. But you know, what I call traveled so far it'd be a shame. If I don't eat at all it's been sitting in the beauty bag. So. What do you think? Yeah. It's good. You know, what I would like on this like a raspberry drizzle. Will they actually had cherry blossom flavor that I brought from my mother-in-law. She was watching the kids so interesting. Yeah. It's good. Right. It just like a little it's kind of like reminds me of what you would by not in the packaging or anything. But like a souvenir you would buy it like ladder Ray. When you go to exactly and they actually have a proper restaurant upstairs as well that I had lunch. It's all where you know. Ladies who launch? There was like a seventy year old woman with purple hair. Like hashtag goals. Yeah. It's totally a mecca where all beauty lovers. Need to go before they die impressed. You did all of this probably while being so jet lagged all my God. I was so liked. It was crazy. I think this was after my Felicity interview, lissi Jones and traffic, I went out shopping. And then afterwards, I actually had a little sit down with Shijo because I wanted to ask her about this whole J beauty trend. You know, everybody's talking about Jay. Beauty obviously followed Kay beauty. And I wanted to know how she felt about that term. You know, I think as Canadians particular particularly were kind of conservative, and we're really concerned about how people feel and I was like is this offensive to you? Are we diminishing something by throwing that term J beauty on it? But it's funny because now you see like Abe beauty for Australian beauty. And didn't you say you got some Email about oh, I just say I like through my phone across the room. I know I was reading an article online. It was like get ready for g beauty like German, Germany. Oh my God. I think against those products. It's Barbra Sturm nothing against them. But I'm just like can you just have brands that are? Yeah. Effective and don't have to call out their native country. I don't know. It's so much marketing spend. Yeah. So anyway, she was obviously, not speaking for all Japanese eight women, but here's what she had to say on the topic. Personally speaking, I do not mind it at all. I do find it. Interesting that people are people find things fascinating, which are has always been a part of our lives. So that's kind of interesting. But I love that the culture of Japan is getting attention in any way. I appreciate it. So yeah, I don't mind it at all. So we're curious what you guys think drop us a line and our Facebook chat room or on her Instagram comments. You know, does the term J beauty make you feel inspired or proud and excited or offended and put off let us now. I also asked she hosted Halas how she sort of distinguishes Japanese beauty in terms of just the self-care ritual. How it might be different from how North American women approach beauty and skin care. And this is what she had to say about that from the very beginning. I was taught I'm not sure even if I was taught by my mom, but I just knew that the central steps of taking care of your skin was too. I. Cleanse and then moisture is and then kind of put a lid like hydrate and then put a moisturizer? So that kind of works as a lid to not let your moisture escape so that was like the basic fundamental understanding of skincare three steps. So after I wash my face in the shower, I would come out and then put a lotion. And then a moisturizer? Yes. And what was the name of the store you guys went to? So we went to Don Quixote, which is hilarious because it sounds like a tequila. Yes. And it's not technically a drug store. It's like a cross between a drugstore, and maybe a best buy okay or something like that. So there's a lot of tech in there as well. But it's like you can have you can have TAC. There's candy there's beauty products. There's like designer handbags. It's hilarious musing. Anyway, I hope you enjoy coming shopping with us. Everything is talking to you. Which is why it's so loud in here. But the first place we stopped is the doctor shoal, it's called mendicant. Okay. Need to get the okay. And these are compression socks which I just learned about because I bought some to wear on my flights Tokyo. So that might ankles already. Yes. But not the doctor shoal I bought a different hair. And that was so that my legs and ankles swell on the flight because it was thirteen hours to get here. But you're telling me you were these on a regular, yes. Regular basis. I have two pairs of them. And all my friends, like literally all my friends have at least one or two pairs of this medical. Okay. And what is the purpose? So that it gives you a fresher throughout the night. Yeah. It helps with your lymphatic vessel. Right. So that helps with the puffiness, okay? So you're gonna wake up with nice, then ankles. Oh my gosh. So I don't know how many of our listeners know this, but I have XL size ankles. And so this is something I'm going to start considering. And this is a great price. Actually when you look at this sign at cost me. Yeah. It is one of our most well, non beauty award. Okay. So it means that you won the number one. Yeah. In this award in two thousand sixteen. Okay. That's crazy. Long my mind. Beauty goods. I would say, okay. And there's no toes on them. Their toilets socks that. Go all the way up your. Why? Just not work on your ankles. But it gives you a pressure. Yeah. I actually need these guys. But I probably would be like a double XL. Oh my gosh. Okay. Let's keep moving. Okay. Here we go. We're in the makeup. I'll now what are you seeing? Okay. So we have this multiple liner from flow who she? Okay, that's the makeup brand who she actually seen that elsewhere while. Yeah. A true. Holy grou-. Okay. Yes. Tell me why is one of the best islanders. I've tried many liners from the drugstores in Rome don't behold as well. But this has been like my favorite like my go-to. Okay. So the liquid eyeliner liquid eyeliner with of like a brush tip, very, very sharp and narrow you the precision. Yeah. And the control, and it comes an interesting colors, they have color variations too. But I recommend this dark Brown. Okay. Because it gives you that softness. At the same time. It kind of gives you the definition as well. Do you wear liquid eyeliner every day? Yes. You do you're wearing one right now. Yes. But it's almost out of ink. Oh, it's kind of like smudging as this has that caused may award on it as well. Yes. That means that this has been the best costume award winner of two thousand seventeen and the eyeliner category. All right. So how much is this? It's one thousand five hundred Japanese yen plow tax. Okay. So okay. Add to cart, another interesting item. So these are to make your eyelids double eyelid. So a lot of girls born with Mona lid. Yes, they use these tapes pull the sides where it's in silver. Yep. And if you pull them. Yeah. Transparent strike. Yeah. Like a strip like a rubber strip comes right? And then you press it against your lid. Okay. And then you cut both sides. Okay. The SaaS dangerous. We're like glue to stick your lit yet to make double eyelid. Okay. So it's going to it's kinda kinda lift it up lifted up. So you you can change your Mona lid to a double like you see here in the picture. Okay. Get the image. Yeah. Yeah. Yelling precedent against your lid. Yeah. Then you cut the edges the edges. Okay. So it gives you race. It gives you a priest. Okay. Okay. Crease of big trees. And so how popular you said, this is popular? But how popular is like is this some people on the fringe or for real for real like high school kids would I I used to try it to yet. Luckily, I have like double eyelids. So whatever I have like a puffy, and it doesn't work the usual way avid kind of reach out to these is, okay. Intensify crease. Okay. But my friends have tried it for a very long time. And if it doesn't work they would go for like, plastic surgeries. Okay. So this is called the micro Feb. Yeah. Mike, girl, five fiber. Oh microphone. I can't. I might that works. Sounds accurate. That's like a five or like a strip, right? Okay. Glue version UC here glue glues to literally you glue your lid together to make it. Wow. Okay. And this is interesting because that's a con Cashin woman who's advertising? Lorde with her crease and happens. I think that's me. Actually, it has one is the number one in at cost side. Trust. Okay. 'cause needs to sponsor this episode that wouldn't looks like it involves a blow dryer. There's a picture of a girl with a blow dryer, and it's pointed out or is on the front of the product. I looked film you to apply and then dry it. I right. And then stick your lists together. Okay. Okay. So that's another option. Of course, it is. I do the norm. Like people understand that people. Do this. It seems like from the outside looking in that the that this is about trying to have a Caucasian Roque. Exactly. Yeah. And so I'm more curious. How do you feel about that? I guess I mean at the end of the day, it's about accepting your appearance than what you're born with. But before reaching that stage in your puberty, like your high school days, you go through a phase, you know, want to try and look like a cocaine Asian someone you look on your Easter Graham like yeah. Yeah. Your idol you become that. Right. So I guess this is something that people go through and eventually graduate. Yeah. Right. And do you think eventually this will go away, or where do you think this is the sort of? I mean. I mean going it will. Day. But then and because plastic surgery are becoming more accessible and changing your eyelid to moan to double is one of the most common plastic surgeries. Not we don't even call it surgeries. Right. Just call it like g sake, which translates to petite. Plastic procedure many. Very light version of right. So I mean, yeah. Having that in the axes, I think people tend to go for that over rice. Right. Okay. But you think that will continue like a percentage of people with still rely on this because they're scared of changing permanently. Yeah permanently. Right. Do you think that it could change where people just are no longer trying to achieve? That sort of goal. That's interesting question because when you look at the ads in Japan, not even like into Hollywood, but like just within the country a lot of like majority of the celebrities have this beautiful ice shave was her crease and double eyelids sewn. It's just almost impossible for to find. Someone that rocks. They're like natural low natural Asian, right? Mona lid almost like, right? Even when you look at when you come to the store to purchase makeup are items. When you look at the pops yet, you will find you know, all of them was double eyelids. Right. It's definitely difficult to change people's perspective towards beauty other than that eyelid shape. I was said people have become more free right to express themselves right in terms of fashion hairstyle makeup, people do go more out of their box comfort zone and people do like try crazy haircutters. Yeah. Yeah. You can definitely see that in some areas, you see people being able to expert. Yeah. The self expression is happening. Yes. For sure. Wait a second. Josh have a Disney eyelash curler, which is clearly for young girls owned. My gosh, they have the little mermaid how old's can the kid be to start using an eyelash curler. I don't think it's targeted towards young girls. Oh like oh. Here's the love. Oh my gosh here. Okay. Okay. What else? Do we have here? Okay. Tools. Oh my God. I'm talking about this. Okay. This looks like we are we've just entered a costume store. No word of a lie. What are these these are like compression masks for your face on God? It's like those socks that. I bought except for your face stop. Okay, mind is officially blown officially. Have you ever tried this actually? No. But I've seen my friends where them okay and go to sleep and go to sleep. Okay. And do their faces what are their faces. Look like the next day. Honestly. But I knew of doing this makes them satisfieds. Okay. That's amazing. What is this? This looks like a sex toy. Oh, you guys don't have these. Oh. Rollers to it works the same way as a compression socks. So he basically puts pressure and massages your legs. Okay. That it helps with the circulation of your lymphatic vessels. Okay. And so that your legs will be slimmer in the morning. Okay. I like this. And this this that looks like a duck speak. I assume gives you duck. Let. No, it's not for the duck lips. It's not Sean exercise for your smile. Oh, my trade you to have a. Beautiful more beautiful smile. Only. Needle in Slidell. The sides of your mom. Okay. It's kind of a joker affect I'm into it. I'm in love to see you where the oh my gosh. How much is this? It's one cost me a two. Okay.

Okay. We're gonna circle back. Right. Nice to meet you. We're having fun. There's lots of really cool stuff in here. So yeah, we're just chatting about products here. But have a look around as you should take a look at the mask area because we have. So we put first, but I what what is this little doggy face. So it's another variation or the smile exercise. Okay. What's the final? Look you're going to go with this. So you honestly looks like one of those dog there's little dog things like over the filter on Snapchat like them. But apparently, you suck on it. And then you blow into it. So basically trains your cheek muscles. Oh, right. Okay. So you're going to have that look like that do that look on your face. And this one beside it is a face up belts.

Then this is this like the baby foot Ma exactly we. Yeah. They sell this at Sephora now. Oh, does this really have horse oil in it says horse oil on it? Is it real horse oil? Yeah. This is not cruelty free. Not at all that case. No, forty minutes. They want you to wear it. Who's got the kind of time. Wow. Have you tried these baby I haven't. But I heard everything sheds off like a snake? Yeah. I bought it. But I'm too scared to try you have to do video. I have to like a lot of times Chinese and Korean people always bring a list of items that they need to buy and Rebecca home. Okay. And this is always in the list. Oh, then we need to know what it is. So he says nine years consecutive consecutive nine years. It's been number one selling. Okay. So this is a cleansing foam Sanca cleansing foam on my. Okay. So this is the cleansing foam. I wonder why people love it so much. But you know, what I'm about to find out? Yes. Senka perfect. What in my car? Sorry. There's little TV's everywhere. I'm so distracted. Can I ask you something?

Yes. I know what you mean. It's got those little I mean, I don't know what you call them. It looks like it's gonna puncture. But it's not. And yet, there's a brand I think it's Neo stratas coming out with their Hyler onic acid. And so you can put them wherever you're lines are I think they're kind of cool. Hey, where do you think the beauty powder face wash? I'm so overwhelmed. Okay. Where do you think the masks are? Let's go further down. Right. Let's go in here. Oh, look at all these mass. So many pictures of babies. Says for eleven consecutive years. This has been the top one. Okay. And it's called babyish baby. A sheep mask. And it's going to make your skin. Every brand has like different saying they claim that their number one, right? Facemasks? Okay. Black pearl. Luminous facemask gosh, go. Thirty five beauty awards, and he says it's been number one for twelve years. Wow. Cam a little overwhelmed. Let's see what's on this side. There's lots of lip masks. So they do have on this stuff. Okay. Juno. This brand. Like is there one of these products that are going to be worth the spend? It's she Saito's Shiseido's brand. Right. Yes. Okay. So. Definitely worth spending. And that's perfect UB sunscreen, skin care, Melk, SPF fifty. I'm going to be so set for sunscreen. So this is another. She Saito brand that we don't have Alexia. Yes. Okay. It's the number one. Mass Christina JR. Skincare brand in Japan. Oh, wow. And so how does that compare to a NASA which is also owned by Saito? So this is for. Protection? You. Okay action. Only got it. They did not have skincare line. Right. Okay. But they're available at drugstores too. Yeah. Great. This cleansing is such a trend right now. Oh, yeah. I love this. I've tried this so many times. What's funny is that you person out? Okay. And you only need avenue sonny's. And then you put it on your skin, and you starts bubbling up. Oh, Bubba plans are. And then he can remove your makeup as well. So this is called the balancing bubble by Alex sear. And so if it works on your pores because you know, like, you put the gel, and then he imagining like bubbling up any kind of like cleanses, your pores, and it works to firm. Your pores. Sh broke by the time. I leave. What's what's the second little guy for oh? That is. GWP you get. Yes. Okay. It's so funny that you call it a softener because I feel like I'm one of the only people that calls any kind of essence of softener and people are always looking at me. Like, why are you calling? It a softener. So I knew I got that from somewhere. Okay. Good. You try to okay. Flight home last time that was like this is Eric on the my, hey. I wore like an eye mask that heats up when you go skiing like one of those paths, like a warm pack. So I wore why do you need that on your eyes? It's a postal like, relax you. And also, it's like deep puffing and de-stressing I thought you use cool to puff on your eyes. But like, apparently, this is the thing. Yes. Okay. Well, this one over here, which is over this woman's mouth on the front of the on the front of it. It's it's as gentle steam facemask. So I guess it's like a steaming idea. And also has our Ma okay, aromatherapy, okay. Gosh. I have it at home the ones where the is. Okay. It's actually quite relaxing. And it helps you to fall asleep two. Oh on your is. Okay. That sounds interesting. I only see the mouth ones are. I would maybe consider like a. Oh, the pit mask. Right. Oh. Okay. I have a question about this because I asked Erika's wall. So there are a lot of people who wear masks over their mouths is it mainly because they themselves are sick. And they don't want to spread the germs or is it the other way around where they don't wanna get sick both. Oh, it's both. Okay. Okay. That makes sense. So these ones are kind of more stylish color one. Yeah. It looks like maybe it looks like it might be foam that might be able to be washed. But I feel like this is too much investment in like three. Yeah. Three masks like, maybe. Okay. Did we just get in trouble there, by the way? Inside. Okay. Okay. Okay. Good. Okay. So that was fascinating. I took so many notes when I go to Japan, I'm ex. So so fund so fun. She was so sweet. I know I love her. I mean, the compression socks my mind is blown or tights are thi- highs. I don't even really know what you'd call them. It's awesome. And the fact that all those shelf things are talking at you. It's like many billboards everywhere. So Larry, it's actually kind of smart. Yeah. So what did you think you had specifically asked me for this be or a UV SPF fifty aqua- rich? How did this get on your radar? And what did you think of it? This is a product that tons of Instagram ours, tons of bloggers, and even people who are not beauty editors necessarily, just like regular beauty girls. I've talked about like Amina from call your girlfriend podcast. She always talks about buying this on Amazon dorey and Kate from forever thirty five or always talking about this, and you can buy it on Amazon, but I just hadn't. I wanted it straight from the source. You know what I'm saying? So why think this is amazing is because it is this watery texture. So for me as an oily skin person. That's like my kryptonite. That's all I want is a watery texture sunscreen, and the fact that it's SPF fifty. I am also very very pale. When I tried this out it really lived up to the height. It is so blend -able it goes on so well, it does not pill onto your makeup, and I will absolutely by this again. And it's like I'm just looking on Amazon right now, I will add this to our Amazon store, it's sixteen Ninety-three Canadian, which is like the same price point as like a Neutrogena. Yep. It's great. So, but you will not find this in Canada and any drugstore just a fly. So it lived up to the hype. Yeah, I love a cult. But what else? Did you try that you love? I have it right in front of me right now. I probably going to butcher the name. But it is an a liquid eyeliner. I just feel like I've just dumped my cheesecake by accident. I'm going to clean that later. I feel. Oh, like Japanese women really don't around when it comes to like what island or they're not going to accept anything. But the best. So this is from a brand. Oh my gosh. I don't even know you guys. I think it's the flow FU she like F L O W F U S H. I hope I'm not messing that up. And this is their mo- tailender like M O T E liner could be moat liner. Anyway, it's a black Brown eyeliner. And I have to say it went on like a dream. No, pulling no, tugging no transfer so far, and I really liked the pen tip. It was really flexible. So you didn't feel like you were drawing on a super harsh line and extremely thin strokes. You can do. So you can go over the same area more than one time and not feel like you're gonna you've just messed up your entire I make right 'cause with an liquid liner you need to just kind of tabby. Yeah. Like just really tiny dots. Join them together strokes and. Got it in there. So I thought this formula was released mood and I loved the applicator, but in terms of the wear so far so good. You know, I am stealing this from you, basically. Okay. So it's winter. Did you try the gentle steam, I'm mask? No, I didn't know this is the last thing we're going to try this is a sachet. And then we're out sachet that you're opening. Okay. So it looks like there's going to be maybe like a sheet mask inside. And then you open it. Now. It looks like a maxi thin. Yes. You open it and somewhere you must peel off the backs. Of course, we can't read the instructions. No, you don't pay off the back because it's no look at the picture. She's got the pink part on the it looks like two teabags. Okay. Here we go we've instruction. We've found the instructions on Amazon gently tear, the ear straps along the perforation place. The mask over is with the notched edge position over your nose and hook the straps around. You. Ears. Oh, I've got headphones on there you go. Once the oh, it's warming up. Okay. I feel it warming up. Oh my God. I'm loving this. Once the mask is in place, keep your eyes closed and do not press the mask against your eyes. Relax and enjoy the gentle heat. You guys. Are you going to take all my gosh? Yes. Take my picture. You know what I'm loving this? What does it feel like it feels warm it does it feels like those little pouches that you put into your mittens in the winter guys? This is a joy, it's like putting it's like putting a warm wash cloth over your eyes, so relaxing. But without the wetness. I am. So putting these on my next flight? I love. Cable that was really fun. I am definitely giving a thumbs up to the Meg rhythm gentle. Steam, I'm ask there's different sense as well. I think I got the unscented Amazon, lavender and stuff. Yeah. It's on Amazon. We'll add all of these are Amazon's fact, we'll thinks for shopping with us, and let us know if you try anything, and if you love it and CNN or if we're if we missed anything in the drug.

I hope I'm pronouncing that right in her first film. She's like magnificient. So yeah. Keep an eye out for that one a souvenir Coweta hear more about that. But let's get to this week's films up. I we have on the basis of sex. Felicity Jones stars in this bio pic of US supreme court Justice, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, the film focuses in on a landmark case that's in the early nineteen seventies kick started the battle against gender discrimination and launched Ginsburg's legendary legal career, but first she must graduate from Harvard Law School where in the nineteen fifties. She was one of the few women in a class of five hundred men. This is only the sixth year women have had the privilege to earn a Harvard law degree this little Suare is our way of saying welcome my wife Harriet, and I are very glad all nine of you of join. Let us go around the table. And each of you ladies report who you are where you're from. And why you're occupying a place at Harvard that could have gone to a man Sam Waterston? There is dean Griswold possibly the villain of the piece on a you wrote the review from the basis of sex. Tell us is just a timely by pick. Should we care about Ruth, Bader Ginsburg? And does this do her Justice? No, each definitely care about respecting Ginsburg. She's this larger than life figure in kind of US playschool, legal culture, and pop culture. Now, she's become his unlikely pop culture icon. She is nearly ninety. I think and this firebrand tiny Jewish American woman who is just kind of. I think. I'm struggling a bit. Because I watched the Ruth played against documentary on my flight back from Sundance, which is a very very good film. Also out pretty soon. Called jeans and I'm struggling to him. But what was in that? This is a film that's been in the works for a long time. They've been you know, so saying, oh, we should make a respect against both by OPEC invites. I can see from the notes and Natalie Portman is going to be in film originate. And also that to me makes way more sense of casting choice than I see Jones in Natalie Portman is Jewish and been very vocal about representation of Jewish women in film, and then they. For some reason. The I think, you know, there's a market for it. I just don't necessarily thing. This is the film the sheet is of so the film that I deserve as a fan of Ruth bait against. Say that deficiency is very rudimentary. I think it's a very like a potted history is kind of going from her days as a law. Student facing dance. I'm Waterston who's doing his best kind of like, I'm the sheriff, these pots and your woman. And so it goes through that all the way up until I it's about like a twenty year period. It covers it's quite a long time. And there's a lot that's kind of like gosta. So I want to get into like a history s in Monterey Bay against. But there was this very strange period. Where after she finished law school. She didn't graduate from Harvard. She had to move to New York because her husband job, New York. So I think she graduated from Columbia might be wrong. Anyway, so she graduated from law school and then couldn't get job. No firm in you would hire her despite her having graduated top of their costs because she was a woman so she had to teach law, and then that's how eventually she ends up getting involved in this sex discrimination case, which changes her life and also the kind of face of sexual discrimination law in the United States, but they're just trying to like do a lot in this own trying to kind of crime in everything and kinda guy for that real like mass market. Like, if you don't know who paid gives big is, this is the only film you need to watch. And it's just I think it needs to be more focused and more kind of women in the city tries to have it all is like such a kind of old, you know, boring. The reason. I session who feels like it could be mad men for women in law. Mismatch from the salaries. This is pretty interesting scene where she's going for job interview. And the guy into being her says, you're a woman a mother and a Jeep to boots seeing that she's put this triple issues against Allen. What did you think of this film? Yeah. AM in which the documentary? I didn't really know much about her. So that was re interesting, I especially love the ending when we get to the actual case that she does that was freeing thing for me to go back to what you were saying about how it's a movie that does is just like a thorough review. And I think that's a problem in the film because you watch this, and I it doesn't necessarily all really hang together you, obviously, it's all about sexism. But that's just because as this woman Roberto Ginsburg, she encountered an insane amount of sexism. Because of the choices, you know, who she was and the movie tries to put it all in the film. And you're like, well, actually, if you I mean, it's it's incredible that she managed to carry all down shoulders, but the movie itself, I don't think has the as what it takes to handle all of it. And so it just feels going to there seems to try to address those sexist issues. But in a way that I think he knew more realistic film. It would feel more like a pervasive thing that she's aware off and she's just dealing with every single day of life, and he had feels like they'll scenes to ill. Straight one aspect of sexism. And every time she's like a little bit surprised and disappointed. And I'm like, I don't believe that. That's how Roberta Ginsburg is. I think she's just very very aware of how it's everywhere and don't let little scenes what she learned something. And I'm just like does what makes it a very Hollywood type film of each of these really big scenes where she I will get humiliated or she power walks out of a room after saying something recess and he's just like, well actually would have been fun. Not fun. Unbelievable horrible. But like interesting to see the reality of living does society because I don't think the movie reading shoes as I rem- realistic, pervasive like sexism that that will be. So I can't even imagine living in a situation like this every single day you wake up and people treat you like this paints in broad strokes comes off to me you comes off to almost like a primary school history lesson. Yeah. Does not much in the way of complexity to it. We mentioned in Griswold are more. And he's very much played as a villain. And there are these characters portrayed as equally good or bad, and they focus in so much on the home life. If we'd better Ginsburg and her husband Martin who's played by Armie hammer in possibly the who the easiest most woke role, you can take because nothing Ginsburg is a adad who has a job. But it's supporting his wife every line. He says, you're amazing. And everyone I knew how was your day is how many seen start within saying? How was your day? What did you do today at least five or something you really couldn't say? So funny. That's a this is clearly an awards position performance, Felicity Jones. But Armie hammer is just happy being the best dad was in cinema history in this. I I'd like him to give me a pep talk. I know what you. I know what you think of army in this. Okay. Right. So. We fade against Martin Ginsburg have like one of them is kind of very mounting stories. I think you would just they owe an absolute joy a couple for me. They met call edge, and he was smitten with her thought she was just the best. And and this film is very much like like that. You know, it's just this guy. He's just like goddamn. I'm lucky as man in the world. Like, I really found that very charming. But yeah, it's kind of like a mile legal thriller, or am I very much film? And maybe they should have just picked one because I think there's enough in that kind of romance. That would be an interesting film about a very supportive husband who kind of has everything Hannity on a plate. He I think he went to Harvard as well. And he becomes one of the best tax lawyers in New York. And you know, everything just seems to come quite easy for him. Whereas she's just like drowning in sexual discrimination Ninety-seven too. I think that would have been interesting film as well. I'm hammer. I think you know, he he does a good line in lucky tool and handsome and slightly vacant. One of the things I do find quite funny about this film in general is it so clearly on paper should have been like an awards contender. And just in reality is just you know, who's giving the best performance in. This film is is just in theory. Going for gold as this kind of. What would you say he's Mel wolf historical figure? He's the head of the SEAL. You. Ginsburg is petitioning him to add their name that huge can of civil rights lobbying named to the case. And he's just tearing apart all scenery around him. He's like chewing, and he goes, okay? And it's never explain why. If you wish you documented it does go into why they call her this. But he's just like I like Sergei Beleza across the room. And I was like. Did that scene, dude? Was like what is kind of like a history. She's like, oh, yeah. We go way back. How? Like. Yeah. I think he's great. But he's got this really fake looking Muste strutting. Why is no hard just like make it better? What's interesting because he's the most like complex. He he's on her side. But he knows the law, and he knows what's what can work and what work and. Yeah. So he's he's more interesting than most offers his threat is what was most most intriguing for me because the ACLU without time was very much on the side of black Americans. Civil rights and he his question for is. How is this as important or more important than that fights? And just the film doesn't really pick into their. I think it's like not an argument for another day. Yeah. I think that is the most kind of relevant to today's society this idea of like picking your battles. And like, what should we be angry about, and I think my favorite scenes in the film, the ones where he goes that house and the kind of coaching Ruth for the trial. And that's one of the kind of real energy is in this film. Like me, no seeing him I push her and push buttons. And it's just so desperate to be this real life, affirming like you. Go girls like film, and it could have got more meat on. And I think there's also this this one really interesting line in the film, where I think it's just if you character who says that if you lose this case, you said of precedent for them to basically make sexism like even more law is and that's really fascinating from us perspective. Because actually this is what happened. With a very famous case. I forget the name of I just read about it that yesterday that basically confirm segregated knows in America in the fifties. And this is exactly why. But someone tried to go to court to pull the same thing like someone that something that was really unfair to black people and we lost. And so therefore set a precedent for every similar case later to say, well, they lost in this case. So therefore, you got with this time and imagine being that's tuition, she's such a huge danger. If when she's doing this case in the film, and it's only mentioned very briefly in the film, but it would have been so like interesting to buy more because he would really give the sense that of the challenges in this case, not just like issue going to do is she going to say, the smart thing, it'd be like she doesn't history will be so different in a terrible way. That'd be nice to see more of that perhaps more compelling as a as a legal throw than anything else. But you have to wait sometimes get let's put some scores on this. I think is maybe threes across the bows is quite hard for me to be extremely critical this film because I always like to kind of champion films directed in Britain by women or this was written by Reece nephew. I believe. It's great to see me lead. A gay used getting to make another kind of high profile film that being said, of course, you know, film critic my. My my GT's do the film, but it is just very GCC history lesson vibes. It's not Phil. Knight could ever see myself watching again. And I think he just kind of left maybe one wanting more from it more of anything really more romance more legal thriller, just pick a lane. So yeah, I would say sort of the same thing. But I don't know if I'm that positive about it because I feel like it's such an important an incredible thing that she's done enough in the movie soul of almost trivializes it by making it so Hollywood. And I think that's very dangerous because he sets in plays into the idea that. Oh, yeah. Like you've done this. We're fine. Like, actually, we're not. I mean, we know that things could go back to be very very very terrible. So I at the same time, it's it's gonna probably teach people about this thing that even happened. I didn't even really know about this few months ago. But at the same time, I'm afraid I might like saw trivialize her and also make her dislike very empty. The icon thing which is his can you please stop talking about her this way? Like, it's very embarrassing. Like, she wants all let's not say. Oh, yeah. RPG icon like oh my role models of. I mean, there is this school or something. This is interesting prevalence at America. And I think a lot of people to this. I mean, if occasion of politics and turning political figures into kind of like, you know, just these empty Twitter memes and things and it's important to remember where the film might this is not ever going to be the whole story. And also at the supreme court, traditionally is a very kind of conservative place, and it's hard to really be progressive when you supreme court Justice, and obviously we did a lot. And I think she's a lot more kind of liberal than a lot of supreme court justices. But I think to get bad picture of the way that the American legal system works and kind of how so of conservative and. Right winger is maybe we should. Okay. Amenity about her. I think it gives you a fuller picture of what's going on. Okay. Well, there's really this is not really the the bio pic, maybe this figure. I'd probably say in anticipation three and twos. Both enjoyments. And in retrospect, it's it comes across his failed Oscar bait. Really? And we've had a few of those few. Hopefully, this time of year spring is coming the Paramore's will be hit for you know. But that's only exactly that's on the basis of sex up next. We have a can prize winning drama Copernican. In a Lebanese courtroom. A young boy named Zane is suing his parents who bringing him into the world in flashback. We see the events that led us hair from saints Poesies trick in upbringings as attempts to run away and starts in your life for himself from his family. This film premiered at can last year took home the jewelry price, but little white lies owned. David Jenkins says it's like a feature length charity appeal only less fun now Elena. Agree with David coast. But tell us about this film. So we stay with this kid callsign news about twelve. I mean, we don't even know for sure because he doesn't know when he was born and he lives in Lebanon in basically, the slums and he's having about six brothers and sisters, and parents were not very nice kinda violent basically, we just have done no money at all. And he has to try and make money some ways I selling fruits on the street or sending anything that he can find reading then Monday, his sister's like very young she is about to be married off to some much much older man, who's probably in his late twenties thirties, apparently that this is a thing in Lebanon and other countries like four countries and Zion doesn't want this to happen. Because obviously, she's basically a child and he's attempts to prevent that set off an incredible. Adventure? That's kind of not in positions that he just has to struggle even more to survive because he decides to leave home and to set off to leave all these people were just never been good to him and to try and have a better life somewhere else. And it's not as easy as it sounds. It's not it's not a Hollywood film. And yeah, so this is pretty harrowing portrayed of what is like to live on the streets in Lebanon as a twelve year old, and it's told is this street level film, professional actors, the actor the place. This is actual name. He gives this incredible on school performance. Does not have he owns donate every frame of the film, especially because he's he's obviously he's nine actor and ninety Liebeck. He were interviewed. Actually, she told me that this shot insane amounts of footage. And she had initially shared like seven eight hour cut of the film. And there were so many good moments. Obviously because you eat it doesn't take very long into the film to realize that this is an incredible child. Who's who's every moment on screen is just so honest in ROY and like an incredible. And obviously, she told me that it was very hard to cut down the film to two hours because there were so many beautiful incredible moments of hammered screen, and that alone is such a to me such pleasure in in this film is he's just so incredible. You can't help caring about him. But also, I just I want to go back to what David said 'cause I think saying is a feature named charity. Appeal ad is very unfair. Because I think to me charity appeal ad is you see this child who's who's very poor. And he looks at the camera, and the and you feel bad for him, and you wanna pay money, whatever this is the thing does this notion in those ads of like you're offering a little bit. You're like look at sport child. He's struggling, but he's looking at you right now. And in the film, there's not a moment where we feel so separate from this kids Zane on the contrary like I you see him. You might be like what's going on? Because it starts in the scene where he is in cool to decides to sue his parents for giving birth to him this isn't sports plot because he hates being alive so much. And you're like what is what is happening? But then immediately you go back to the beginning of his story. And and you so close to him you with him on everything every little trouble that he has every day. Like, how do I make money? How do I wash my sister? How do all these things? So it stops becoming this sort of charity appeal add aesthetic is just like what is it actually like to be on the street every day? It's not like all the problems in the world and poor people who are who don't have anything to. It's like you're on the street. What did you do? And I think that's that's so much more almost valuable. I think than than a charity appeal Ed because it's like we always have this cues is like what can I do? You know, I'm always only away like the systemic problems. Like, why did people are poor in this world and wars and stuff and then in December like okay stop. Y'all skill. He has nothing to eat. He doesn't have anything to wash. What did you do? He just wants money. It's not hard. And that's why we loved about the movies. Like, it's from twelve year old child doesn't know about politics doesn't bunny thing. He only knows is. He was born and from then on his life sucked. Life, and like, well, yeah, I mean from sexy of adults or anyone who knows anything about, you know, the society you like, well is complicated. Even before him is not the United States. I'm just alive in a hated. I don't wanna be born don't give birth to me. And I think there's value in. It's not saying you should agree with him. And this is social, but it's like, I don't know it just really long run. Picks. Justice. A good rebuttal today with Jenkins whose review can read on the on the website, but it does have this strong. But this is coming from this tradition of cinema, of empathy where you are very much living with this kid for two hours and seeing him go through all these experiences. But it does have an issues movie layer on top of that. Where does looking at these undocumented people living in slums who just having kids they count provide for feeling there is a maybe a certain didacticism later in the film, maybe Hannah wedgie land on all this is from that worked for you. Did it move you? It's funny. You say that a tweet last night saying laughing, quite cold, David Aikins has been brightly dragged for that that statement on social media as well as yeah. People have tweeted said that Severi unfair assessment of the film, and I think is unfair thing. There's no ally. Conc- in addition. It was you were completely on the money. It's quite unfair to the film. But also, it's an over simplification. And anyway, I'm not going to second. Guess David's opinions about this film? My opinion is the kid is great. I like the he's thoroughly unsympathetic times the way he talks hysterical. Do you? So he's such a foul mouth on him. And then thinks he comes out with. But that's the reality of it. I know kids twelve that. He wanted living on the streets. If anyone has a right to be bag. It's this kid. His life is just relentless misery, and he talks like out Pacino. Is kind of amazing. It just didn't really do very much for me him. Saw it. This prompts. The question have I might to kind of dead to this. Oh thing you know, every single day. I read the newspaper go online, this image of this thing. And maybe that that's so me, you know, I've become desensitized to this. And I should be re sensitizing myself. It does kind of open your eyes. I think especially is very easy to turn off. And if he make a conscious efforts going to watch this film cinema than you not turning off you're engaging with that. I think is you know, for me is valuable this idea that cinema can transporters and show us something so different and so far removed from our experiences, and I do really like the the dealer back Kia. So clearly like positions anes experience. It's not like being a kind of looking at him. Like, oh, this poor child is like this is happening right now. And this is what's going on? This is the way is and it doesn't kind of fall into the very like much on the basis of sex. It's not sentimental is nor. Oh, everything's gonna be okay. For this kid. I think he kind of leave in your like kids like saying all the time. It doesn't work out. You don't just get happy ever. After all the way. It's not like any or all this is like, you know, this is this is the reality and die found refreshing. Yeah. You know, I'm I'm not going to say. Here and say negative things about this film. I just didn't work for me on an emotional level. And sometimes that that's what happens I think one one. Going back to what you said. I think. Yeah, it's true. It's not in this Hollywood way because you could sort city expect a movie like this where the child has all these problems, but he's a child therefore, he's happy like, you know, playing in the street, and and this isn't this is a child who's like, yeah, I could be happy if I had like food and could wash, but he's is not discharge like the minute. He gets something sort of nice moves on from. He forgets his misery. He's way more realistic in you, don't get to be like, oh, he suffers but he's happy anyway because he's got friends and family like he's miserable. And there's no escape from the, and it's not this kind of like a movie where you're like. Oh, poor people. You know, we find a way we don't. And that's that's what I really like is. What makes it? I think interesting in a way that maybe over films about similar topics on because it's like, yeah, you're forced to stay with him to a Hebrew Caesar. And the way he puts his is not like. Oh, you know, we get by always like, I don't wanna do this anymore. Let's put some schools on this. For me. I don't know when I when I I didn't know anything about it. When I went to sit I saw in canvassed free. I guess, and then I think four and five actually because we watched it, and I liked it even more because I was afraid this would we're watching be like, you know, I was like swept by. But actually we watched and it was like this works. This makes sense. This is amazing. This is like is such a good film as an answer to all these films that I think it's so easy to watch film. It'd be like, well, actually, this is all based on liberal guilt. Think. Instead, I think it's like a genuine portray of being individuation. And I think yeah, it doesn't give you answers. He doesn't tell you. What should we do about? This doesn't even ask you for like your money or anything. It just tells you what it's like to live this way. And I think that's so variable coldhearted opinion. No, I I think that Alan is assessment is very fad. And it's one I think I will go back, and we watch some point and see if I'm just kind of in a phone call responding to it. Because again, like, you know, some people are very much respective come out with very very glowing reviews of this film. The something interesting here about like, whoa. Connects to is is as critic. I think I can tell you imagine me even later or something or someone else pushing abuse moved as I was. But I think that's still to defend. Yeah. But no, I mean. Yeah. Threes across the board. Today on just like free. Everything's a three fine. Cinemas fine. But yeah, now deal Becky, very, very talented woman, and she has a long lustrous career in film. I didn't know what to expect with this. I haven't seen her previous two films. It didn't leave me cold put everything with tie appreciates in. This film reminded me of the craft behind it. Like, I was looking at Zane. I was thinking this is a brilliant child performance of the the knitting Hlavac he'd been handling these scenes shot in real relocations thinking how well managed this all was there is an incredible scene. I'm only form inside site from toddler in this movie. Yes. Which babies the best history the sequence what he's given some cheap milk. He takes one step. And it's like what? So good. I say that having a baby myself. It's even hard of this say the film as a whole was momentary interest for me, probably three three two mice goes. But divisive around the table. I will say Kapanen in cinemas this week. So we've had a film about a judge joy price winning film of next. We have an execution in the shape of an asteroid may be. Have deep impact film clip. Downfall in. She's more of a Justice and the judge in shape never mind. Imagine the orange glow of sunset over the ocean. Or the look on your daughter's face when she met her new baby, brother.

It's Mimi leaders deep impact based on similar plots deep impact took more serious and much less match. Oh approach to the material following the impending extinction level events from the perspective of a young stargazer TV journalist, the president of the United States and the crew of the messiah led by old time. Robert duvall. If we can get the remaining bombs in that fed. There should be less of that comet bigger than the suitcase. I we can't do anything about the little one. But. You know, it just might give them a chance. That the army close we didn't have to wait to set the bomb timers until we get closer to earth to raise Houston.

Who all have high schools named after us so Klay from deep impact there, which didn't win the battle the box office in nineteen ninety eight against Armegeddon. But how has it age? Do we have any tweets Hannah? We do. Yeah. I was tweeting about this film the other night. Just first reactions had never seen him full, and my friend in Camberley replied to my tweet and said the meat you a sequence undo this from memory now. 'cause I've lost the tweet. The me the Meteo sequence gave me nightmares as a kid whose name ten ten. Yeah. There is a really harrowing tidal wave sequence in this field off. I would even having read that tweet from Cam. Until he was stunned when he watched it before he was saying don't do that. Yeah. Tend to not show them this film. It's traumatic very very upsetting. It's very depressing surreal like I mean, it's gonna hit. Hit us, and we're we're gonna die it and say, that's really it's such a fascinating film. Now, first of all that the sequence in the tidal wave that's caused by the impact is so pre nine eleven. Title waves crashing of of people swept aside. Incredible shots of say Washington square park. Whether it's old guys playing chess. Reading his newspapers. Why are you doing this new demento would hit at this point? And you chose this to be your last month. I guess, but I suppose it's just following through with. What is the Downer removal is an hour in here where hope is is lost. It's about the or specifically America doesn't have much international pervy coming to terms. How what will they do infrastructure? Happy put in place to quite rational. I'm sure there'll be a lot more weird sex bodies. If like the end of the. Religion stuff. These people in the street screaming Jesus is coming. This is actually very odd thing that should be fishing, alternate cut. What what is in this film? The first watch for you too. Yeah. I kind of I was aware of this. I think there's an article there is an article. I know there's not only lies about the kind of bout with the box office from ninety. I was quite young. When this phone came out missed it first time round, but it is like the mice kind of ninety s casting. You know, you've got young Elijah wood who has the most have in the world you'd go over to kind of like. Swanning around. Were just talking about. Like how old he is in this? Go to space John for like as this kind of young. Buck astronaut Morgan Freeman is the president eight Cromwell James Cromwell. Yeah. We forget Hoffa cast to be you. Aw. There's just a nothing's going on in this movie, and a lot of subplots that kind of because it is just like, basically giving you an insight into all these different reactions, and you know, all these different things that I want Elijah Woods trying to marry this girl he likes to school because you can get her into the bunk. Sorry, if anyone's ever seen that Simpsons episode where is the end the world, which I'm assuming was like as spy by this. Then there's a Bunka and Lisa and Marge get and then homerun Tyne. Anyway, that's I'm related, but does this great the film. I really lights whether I announce the Bunka which is going to be where the people who are going to continue go, and they say if your fifty then you come in. And I was like oh that try to double the baby boomer's. I'll let sound of this. So, you know, maybe lead is all right by me. I find this such a fascinating film. A we have kernels of a great film and the production history is Steven Spielberg wanted to make this. And I think the whole Elijah words threat. The fact that your kid who during your astronomy science class school, you discovered asteroid it's going to hit the anti become almost national slept of back without that is a Steven Spielberg film, every time it cuts to the suburbs. And he's riding around his bike with his flannel shirts on this. James Horner, piano. Theme comes in. It's really interesting apparently most of that plot with cutout after test screenings. So this film was originally like two and a half three hours long because it is a throwback to the towering inferno etcetera films that had big on somebo casts, and some central disaster that we look at through various is. And you can see the robot develop very much thought that he'd be getting supporting actor nomination. He's throwing everything into every scene but coming alongside Magadan which is. The big brash macho Michael bay film that sent his career path and just after MAs attacks timber and film, which completely spoofs this Yanna. Fills that gave him as MAs types. Traumatize me as a child I had nightmares for years about the way too young to. I think is actually like it was a fifteen, but it's very violent Muslim fast twelve I sorted cinema. Twelve. I was absolutely terrified that phone gave me nightmares fears. I saw film for some as an adult, and I was trolling. It's very strange. Strange interlude from all the tags. So deep impact just feels very old fashioned almost on delivery. Yeah. When you can Armegeddon which has all of the things that people go to Michael by foreign film. The moon's macho action. Big. That has the big power ballad song behind it impact is much more interested in people and infrastructure is in politics. The fact that has so many amazing scenes of people staring at ninety s screens computers. Actually, I was surprised because you know, there's so many shows where the computer is just completely unrealistic and here was like actually pretty realistic for the time. I think this is probably how the computers would work. I mean, I don't know. I wasn't like at the time. But it didn't look like, you know, I was watching this incredible dove Lundgren film where he had. I forget what it's called. But there's a scene where the the nuclear weapons are you can control them with a computer. And you choose where you're gonna fight and bisecting the country on the computer. And I was like that's probably not how. It's not like that independent basement realistic. And actually, I read online to actually apparently dipping packed is much more scientifically sound and really stick hope easy. I'm gettin. But at the same time, I feel like this movie, you know, the took him about the one hour whether this new, and that was interesting to watch as a film like this is crazy Hollywood moving doing this with people changes probably like I want my money back. This is Judy pressing. But at the same time, I don't know if the movie has like what it takes to take something so hopeless in horrible and realistic and into handle it properly, like still all this like music, and and all these things, and I'm just like at the movies wealth. Hardly what it's suggesting is. I was just like this is so so horrible and sad plausible. I mean, you could all die right now. If you probably wouldn't tell us if those occasional I don't think Morgan Freeman would be like, I was waiting to tell you about this because we wanted to wait if we could destroy this dirty. He would just not tell us, and we will define Ezio. But yes, I don't think the movies. Like what it takes to really? And then how grave the situation it feels is not like unrealistic enough, usually those movies, the catastrophe movies were more. Like, oh, this is a crazy like tornado thing. What it's never going to happen. And he has like totally could happen. Drool us to Roy's could happen. You know? We'll talk about heap impact because it's directed by me leader who also directs it on the basis of sex, which is released this week this at the time was a big shot becoming the new Spielberg in a way. It was back. Please pie Spielberg Pawtucket by DreamWorks. But he's doing more was the biggest budget came into a female director in Hollywood. At the time. We talked so much about movie jail and female filmmakers, who would she made this and make pay forward afterwards. And then sort of went away for a long time, but she's excelled in television during that might just been between films and come out kind of Meteo chrome both. Maybe that's the best. I think if you think about deep impact as a character study, then it tightly makes sense. That she went onto the leftovers. She went onto e r. So I think she really kind of found her groove working in television and getting to tell these long-form stories which over years and case, it'd be all. So I don't think this is a case of her, you know, kind of like being put in jail because she made a bad movie, and it make money, you know, it it did make money not maybe as much money as they thought it was gonna make. But it wasn't a flaw, but all it just lost out to my. Yeah, we will lost out to my. Obey one way or another. But yeah, I I think that Mimi need is a really interesting case, I be fascinating to know kind of war made her comeback to do on the basis of sex after kind of say long out of the game in ways what remarkable courage from deep impacts to the two on the basis exit. Just yeah. I actually to you were saying this was going to be Spielberg film. But I don't know if the T Elhiani character would be the main character Spielberg film. I mean, she's this woman who's a journalist reporter who wants to become the anchorwoman guess, and also they all these scenes what she's working in the office and his journalists who goes to, you know, the in office for babies when school crush nursery. Yeah. In the office. I mean, it is nine hundred ninety eight Hollywood movie where you see a woman who's working also go baby in the office. And I'm like, I don't know if this would be necessarily be Spielberg film. You know, any feels like try. To make a more the central character in the film, and it feels like quite significant. I wouldn't be Michael bay film. And I don't know if you be Spielberg show. And so that's that's one aspect of it. That's I think was re striking to me in quite interesting. I'm I'm just really I don't wanna make assumptions about maybe his career. 'cause I even watching just this film. I was just like what happened late if you're so strange are so many different narratives going on things that you see way more food see less than you would think you would see more of the alleged character. It just feels like such a huge project that I don't know what the history was there. Like, I don't know. And she to live at the film. Not its failure where anything, but I'm just I don't know what Hollywood works at this time. And how it was for her. I don't know how you know because I don't I don't wanna make some sense bec-. Yeah. In any case from an outside of respect she didn't fail and she should be making more movies. Okay. Well, I think maybe not compared to much Magadan. I'd love to watch this alongside war of the worlds, which is west makes his disaster movie. And it's post nine eleven so side by side. You don't see very hopeless into, but is human level. The day after tomorrow as well, which I I think that was kind of Monty pimp does the right age for me. Joe up again every time I come on on contractually advisor bring on jayjay. Well, we'll. You say about that. I lost my train. I was deep impacts. If you happen to watch it. Now, let us know you think of the usual channels at truth and movies on Twitter at truth movies at TC, Ellen dot com by Email or L dot com slash podcast comment section there next week.

That's the shows about the shows about basically our favorite things if so fact so it's about things that we have been loving on like TV shows. Which is what everyone wants to know about right now so true. I got a lot of things for you. Great by the way I saw some thing about like Maddie's now Dayton Connor Law. It would look so cute together great. But I don't think conor is like a goody goody I love Jesus boy that's not how an up not for what I remember of him. I mean I only spent like seventy two hours with him but I guess he was doing alive and is my Johnson. Yesterday was like what are you in Mattie doing or something like that?

By the way I saw that contagion is like trending on. I know I tunes which is like Whoa Bro. That's real dark. I adding watch contagion which surprise. You don't haven't the one. I did watch with Sarah the other night that I would say is the top of the list is the nineteen ninety. Five Action Drama Thriller Starring. Morgan Freeman Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo in outbreak outbreak. Are We docker struggle to find a cure for a deadly virus spreading throughout California town? That was brought to America by an African monkey outbreak. Also Dustin Hoffman and Rene Russo R. Divorced it's confusing because Rene Russo probably would never date Dustin Hoffman in real life. Because he's like three feet shorter than Rene Rousso outbreak. Anyways monkeys get a bad rap in this one but great film. Okay really yeah okay. I'm too young to have seen that in the nineties. You know yeah. I read the book exit. I also read a book and don't let me for reading a book. Also you listened to it. No no this is back when I read. Actually go back when you could read Gut. It can read now but artful. There's the book also called the hot zone. You remember that book now. Sounds like a porn site or something. But it's only fees. It's the hot the hot zone a number one New York Times bestseller by Richard Pressed and I read this book. A highly infectious deadly virus from the Central African rainforests suddenly appears in the suburbs of Washington D C. There is no cure in a few days. Ninety percent of its victims are dead. A secret military swansea. My soldiers and scientists has mobilized. Stop the outbreak of this exotic. Hot Virus the Hudson tells the dramatic story. Giving a hair is count the appearance of rare and lethal viruses and crashes into the human race shocking frightening and impossible to ignore. The hot zone. Proves that truth really is scarier than fiction. That's a good book. Read the back in the day all right but also like all these African outbreak viruses. And your stuff. You're Auden Dude. That's what everyone thought. Come from Africa. Okay so the other one that we watched last night that I kinda liked all right one of the criticisms in it. Oh Really Chris Pine I love Chris. Pine I know he's your favorite of the Christmas. It's called carriers came out in two thousand nine. Do Google like apocalypse movies. Do when you when you watch one of them then. Then it's like other things that you that might terrify you while you're stuck in quarantine. Is this one carriers. Two thousand nine as a lethal virus. Breads globally as a lethal virus. Res- Globally for France a reputed plague-free haven but while avoiding the infected the travelers turn on one another carriers Chris Pine Hyper Baraboo. Your remember her from Coyote. Ugly yet love her. And then you know who didn't as a little girl. We can't leave six. Bring a mask is Kiernan Shipka. She's the girl she's like Sabrina. The teenage witch the new version. Whatever you know. She's like the hot thing. Everyone's talking about her Emily van camp is in it. She was love her okay. I need to watch this staff. Yeah so carriers. Not that not not not not. A bad of the tagline is the rules are simple you break them you die very original. The one that we like the least is called. It comes at night. I heard of that it's newer. So here's the thing though. The CAST is pretty good. You Got Joel. Edgerton van Dragutin. You Got Christopher Abbott. Which the poor man's Kit Harrington he looks exactly like Carrington He. Does you got Kevin Harrison? Junior he was in loose. That film it came out onto in two thousand seventies. It was pretty recent. It comes tonight secure with secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes. The world of man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son than a desperate young family. Arrived seeking refuge. It comes at night. Yeah like if you need some extra cash. You couldn't narrate movie trailers. Thank you for saying that you know what's funny is a lot of people diem me saying. Stop to the voice. There you go. There's some fucking films for you to Binge while you're stuck Chris Pine One has Chris Pine like one of two things either. It's helping you get ready for the inevitable scary in the world research like I said or it's a glass half full like well. It could be worse could be. We could be Joel. Edgerton over here you know could be a whole lot worse we could be Christopher Abbott and losing every fucking Roller Kit Arrington. You know Lord you got I do but I also had thought you made the news. Instagram today is pretty impressive. Did it say that we're breaking up? Yeah it was joke about. We're done because of the puzzle. I know such a fuck and click beatty thing. Yeah but you should not be complaining about free press right now and could all use a little free press San Really. That's how you take it. Oh Yeah I saw. Someone tweeted to me. Lemon law all right. This is what they tweeted so it was the link to the story so the length of the story is why Wells Adams just declared it's over between him and Sarah Hyland and then this tweeted out. Why Wells Adams's attention seeking andy? News is Click Bait Hungry. You fucking attention see. I didn't St- asks for that. You know it was a joke. Lemon Lanka's yeah. That's not that's not cool. Whatever so people know what we're talking about here. I didn't tire puzzle basically myself like Sarah helped me like maybe point. Five percent of the whole puzzle okay. Stickney took me four days. I finished the entire thing and at the end of it. It's missing a piece. Which is the worst thing and the air wherever happened now the worst thing but you know what I'm saying it's Terr- preterm So she's like in the bathroom or whatever and then she comes out and IDA my story rows like screaming at the top of my lungs about it. And she's like what's what's wrong and I was at school with the puzzle. Talk about on the puzzle and choose like all dude then she started laughing and I was like what are you. What are you laughing about? And then she went and got the piece from our the drawer. She had taken it like in the beginning of the puzzle and hid it from me so smart. Everyone's saying that it's it's sparked my house like we're broken up. That's the meanest thing ever and then whatever here we are here we are and you're on the cover of news into the cover of it. I mean you know your story but a story equivalent of being on the cover of a magazine these days. Let's be real. Yeah like a trash bag. Let's get serious. Have you started little fires everywhere? I finished it. Well there's only three episodes out. Oh I read the book. I didn't know there's a movie. Or who series. Oh Reese Witherspoon is. Where have you been told you that was on reese? Witherspoon Book Club thing and everything. That's on her little book clubs thing as part of her production company. Yeah I purposefully did not read the book yet because I knew the series was coming out and anytime I read the book I I'm disappointed by the movie or series. I'm going to watch the series. I and then once his overall go and read the book. It's Great Reece's Great Carrie. Washington is Great. Highly recommend I'm this is not news to people that are you're watching. Tv except for wells. Who does a great job of the show? It is like. There's something about reese's character? That reminds me of her character and big little lies And I were talking about that but she just does a great job so the premise of this. I'm reading this off of the author's website actually says the story of little fires everywhere explores the weight of secrets. The nature of art and identity in the ferocious pool of motherhood and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. Oh so the girl the plays her daughter Lexi underwood. She's amazing she's the most beautiful little girl. I don't know how she had held she has. She's stunning. I love her in this and other thing. I really like about this. Is it set in the nineties like earlier mid-nineties so it's just? I don't know it so Nostalgic to watch it right because like reasons like talking on her car phone. That's like hardwired into the car to stop. It reminds me of that time. There's a lot of like deep rooted issues that that are talked about in the show. But there's also like comedic relief and everything but it just being three episodes in like. I have no idea what's going to happen care. Washington's character the artist. She's like taken sketchy photos of people and seems like she's kind of spying and like something's up with her so I don't know that's where I'm at. It's got a good ending. Good twist at the end. I recall WANNA watch that tonight. Yeah you should definitely my favorite thing. I've watched this week. Have you seen McNealy now? Okay I started it. I can't remember where I was. I watched the first two episodes. And those leap dude. I don't know I don't know about you but up our I'm Lovin Doug Matthews okay. You need to seriously focus taking adderall or something. Drink coffee even edible. I don't know what you need to do is fabulous loud people who've messaging me like you've got to watch me billions and it's been this for a while Nice. Po Everyone Remembers the monopoly game. For McDonald's right everyone remembers. I remember specifically sitting the Del Monte Shopping Centre with Alex Schwartz in the early nineties ordering French fries over and over and over and over and over again trying to win the big prize. A Dodge viper a million dollars and we would never win shit. This whole documentary is about this one fucking guy who scammed the entire game and stole the money. Yeah that's wild. And it makes you so angry. Twelve-year-old means like. What Fuck Dude? I deserve my money back so there is this one floridian. Fbi agent what you realize in the show I think being an FBI agent is very boring in the grand scheme of being an FBI agent. White-collar bullshit crimes that they're investigating like insurance fraud and stuff and this one agent. Who Like I think thought he was going to be like clarisse from sounds of the land? You know yeah. And he finds out about it. The McDonald's monopoly game might be a scam and he runs with it. And this guy is so fucking funny. He needs his own television show. His name's Doug Matthews. Well he might get it now. He is so funny. If you don't fall in love with Doug Doug Matthews at the end this thing you have no heart okay. But up a Papa Doug Matthews Sorry Jerry. Sorry sorry but up by special agent Doug Matthews. I am going to watch it. It's been on my list as well. Who Good I really feel that. We need to start breaking down. Westworld Gavin Czar Wasi yet. So Oh you're killing me. It's one of those shows. I feel like a lot of people give up on because they don't understand what's going on so freaking confusing especially like the time line of like wind things are happening and what's past and what's future was present like. I just got so confused by all the season to do that. I dislike. I finished too. I like I feel like I was checked out because I just didn't really understand what was going on And then I watched season three episode. One and I was even more lost than ever before like Aaron. Paul Super Cool. Love that you're in the show. Don't understand your character at all and so. I went onto some website and spent literally forty-five minutes unpacking Westworld and reading through what everything means. Okay call me an idiot because I probably am. Maybe not but did you realize that. I guess it was season two. Did you realize that Dolores took over Charlotte's body and was in Charlotte so when you saw Charlotte at towards the end of the series it was really deloris which one Charlotte Charlotte. Hail really pretty black girl really like champagne. Yeah had no clue watch. That whole season did it. No that was dolores. I don't know if that's right. Yeah it's on every website if the Internet says it must be true exactly so I just like there. Were just so many things that happened that I just. I don't know I just didn't understand and so I went through and read it and now season. Three's making a little more sense but basically it's a war of the worlds kind of thing that seems like it's going down and it's all set in the future which is very cool they have the sickest robot cars. I've ever seen in my whole life. Aaron Paul's character easily. He's discharged from the army or something and then he's so now he's trying to find work. So there's this APP where you can get jobs on the dark web or something. It's crazy as we started taking these jobs. And then like Lo. And Behold as my dad likes to say. He comes across a job working meets. Deloris said that's where I'm at now. I just finished episode to. It's cool because it's like set in the future. Dolores is obviously like broke free and so has made a bunch of a bunch of other host are all like out in the real world and it seems as if Dolores and Maeve are gonNA come head to head and then you're going to be some big war between the two of them and it seems as if may is on the side of the humans. I think they probably controlled her to do that. And then dolores it has has like a little like supergroup of like robots and Aaron Paul. Interesting. I'm going to get into it okay. I need you to because I feel like you're gonNA understand more than them but it's very like I actually starting to like this season more than I've liked any other to season two was really a struggle.

I saw humanity. Wait the old one of the new. The new one yeah. I don't see the new one. I just can't olden was just too good. Oh what's the second? One is really good really. Yeah Nice loved the Ridge. We can't not give the second one a chance to love the first one so much and the normal thing. I didn't like the fucking first one so not watching the second one. But if you like the first one. I've never even heard of this rationale before I don't they? They can do as good as they did before going to a restaurant and being like having a meal but can duck and being amazing and then the tech like a week later being like. I don't WANNA go back there. Because it was so good now. It's like not listening to your favorite artists new album because they just can't do better than the first one that's also Gracie I uh you should watch it. So here's the deal. Sarah and I finished it and I was like I really liked that. That was funny. But here's the thing. If you have the Rock and Jack Black and Kevin Hart all in the same film and it's not good then like what the fuck happened you know true? They're all so funny together. That if you can't make that work than Jesus Christ so anyways watch watch it's good. It's also got Danny de Vito and Danny Glover in O. K. Danny Glover goes into the game. And then it's Kevin Hart doing like his Danny Glover impersonation the entire time you know and then the rock is Danny Devito and like the rocks. New York accent is so bad I guess he. He can't do very well going to switch his up. It's really good her right. Can I ask you a question? Of course I think you smoke detectors yum familiar with them. You know in the batteries lower dead. They Start Chirping justice. It's very nine. Why the hell do they have to do this three in the morning? Why do they always start in the middle of the freaking night? Why can't these are chirping at like twelve? Pm when you have a whole day to go and get new batteries. Because that's when the decided the batter decide shit out on you. It's not well way is to that point twenty. There should be a setting where it's like. Hey don't bother me at three. Am of the batteries running. Low four thirty in the morning. I got more than one. Smoke detector that one can settle. There's a few other ones that can carry. You know the wait until I can put the batteries tomorrow but like three M really terp. Mine was like. Oh that's so annoying and then you gotta walk around looking around crazy person being like which one is it like. It's so annoying and all my dogs are up because tie pitch and it's freaking them out. It's just like why I an abbot me last night. Okay can we just real quick get into Tiger King I've only watched the first episode. Okay it's on net flicks and it's bonkers and like everyone's talking about right now. Tiger king a rivalry between big CAT. Essential mix takes a dark turn when JOE EXOTIC A controversial animal. Park boss is cotton murder-for-hire plot. Okay so it's about this Guy Joe Exotic which guess what not as fucking real name. He owns like an exotic zoo in Oklahoma and is definitely someone who does math. He's got all these fucking tigers and lions in Shit and then it's about this other woman who like owns tiger sanctuary that rescues exotic tigers and she'd is getting pita and everyone to go against Joe Exotic because of what he's doing which is like basically he breathes the Tigers and then the little tiger cubs. Everyone's the fucking tiger so that he has people come to the zoo. They take a picture with tiger and then like the too many tigers that I think he's selling them but then the so so he fucking hates her because she's spotlighting. How fucking terrible this guy is. He hates her because she goes and she rescues. The Tigers and then effectively has zoo as well and charges people to come in to do the same thing. It seems like I'm only in the first episode until you're wrong that's feels like it's like one person is like just a crackhead and then one person's like pretending to be the good person but also with crack head is doing this under false pretenses. There's another guy who is also doing it in South Carolina. I mean first of all. Why are we allowed to get exotic animals in this country? I shouldn't be what the fuck is going on guys. We shouldn't be allowed to have any wild animals in confinement like that. There just should not be a thing. Yeah so you might not like it because it's a lot of like ooh this is. Why Zoos you know yeah? Yeah I can't watch it but the characters are crazy and like none of teeth and I don't know I'm only one episode in but Tiger King but watch people are loving it. I've had a lot of people say to watch it. Yeah ruling Haley Bieber posted about it. Well Haley said it. Then if Haley says than gotTa Watch now Inaugural Watch listen I think that the Bachelorette I think Claire Crawley should they need to suck it up and somehow film this season because we the Corinthian people of all the times to be watching four hours of TV week now is the time will they should just do it like they did in love at first sight keeping quarantined than every fucking Ryan? I can't wait to test all the contestants for the for the virus makes it. They don't have it and then once they don't like sweet cool. Let's start filming. Yeah but in does not travel. Obviously that's the problem is travel. And so what are you gotta take one for the team here? But then what do you do you have? If you have a date get creative people. What if it's just a season of just cocktail parties? I mean that's the most drama comes out. I'm sure it would be very entertaining guys like I don't have another suit seriously. I'm here for all the suits are dirty. I only brought five suits their seventieth cocktail party. My God I would watch it. Just call it cocktail party. Now is the best time for as many hours of TV is the bachelor is like now is the time we need it. I know it's too bad too. Because they were like really ramping up online doubling down on all the different bachelor shit. Yeah but they'll figure it alison. We're we're we're probably about a month every every time we pushed back a month. That's my thought. Ever these me push back about a month. I'm being optimistic. I think that's very optimistic. Everybody else is being very pessimistic. This thing's about fourteen days but two weeks for about fourteen days in now. Yeah if people would just like stop going to the beach stop going to Runyon Canyon. The hell home agreement anyone dog. I'm giving into off in that vein. I would say this. There are a lot of shelters who are allowing people to foster programs with dogs and this is a perfect time. If you are quarantined alone or just someone else to foster ducks you actually or a cat. I guess because you can really not an exotic cat because you can really focus on the dog. You know like it's not like you have to go to work at home. You know so. This may be a perfect time for you may. Maybe you're like I'm not a dog person. I don't know maybe this is the time for you to find out if you are if you just take it back you know. Yeah totally myla. Got A new dog fucking name Man. Fucking Man St. Tell your sister to stop getting animals. All right your hand your hand your sister turning into fucking Joe Exotic over here only domesticated dogs. That are homeless. I know but still. That's which to how many animals cow she's doing great. She's doing great she's saving innocent lives. I'm I'm Lebanon. Is she or you. Well I'm not taking this. One is in California eight La. He's very cute. His name is Bo. She called me facing me from the car and she just like randomly guy gone to get him and I was like. Oh does cody know? She was like no. I'm surprise him. I was like I go this long. She goes no no till bomb yet. I'm like okay. What about the dogs did you ask her? Like you think it will get along with other dogs. He has really told anybody yet. Like oh boy. She calls me. Because you know that I'll be the only person on the planet that's like. She should have called atom wells and asked his thoughts. Oh my gosh we all right now is each allier name is Israel quick. Let me destroy. She probably won't answer. What is she doing. What does any people that don't answer phone calls and like pretty thinking entire television show? That's what she's doing. Guess we gotta get us on that show.

Welcome to another edition of happy. Sad confused yes. The Great Eddie read main one of the more charming sweets talented gentlemen on the Planet Planet Returns to the podcast today for another random fun interesting conversation about a great many things including his excellent new film kind of like an old fashioned adventure story with him and Felicity Jones as I mentioned. They've re teamed they of Course Star together in the theory of everything that one worked out. Pretty well where Eddie Tacoma an Oscar for that and in this one they play too. He plays like a meteorologist. They scientist They are in a gas air. Yeah balloon and they kind of a real time adventure set you know. Many many years ago obviously and they are testing the limits of science And exploration and find themselves in a really harrowing adventure It's it's a it's a really. It's a great film to see on the big screen. They're both excellent in it and I had a great time with it. It opens on December. Sixth you should check it out. It is called the aeronautics. So that's the plugging for for Eddie's new film out of the way other other than that I just want to mention that this conversation you know really runs the gamut. We he he was last on the podcast. I think it was about five years ago. Surprisingly although I talked to him a obviously many times for on camera conversations for fantastic beasts and other projects but it was it was really fun to. It's always fun to kind of like really go deep with with Eddie in a kind of a A little bit more of a haphazard conversation a little extemporaneous conversation. He's currently shooting a film that we reference In this chat that I couldn't be more excited about its Aaron. SORKIN 's new film that he wrote and directed called the trial of the Chicago. Seven We allude to the fact that this is a true story about antiwar activists that were put on trial in the late sixties You can look up the details if you want. That's going to be coming. I assume probably late next year that that's a bad. It's an Oscar kind of film for next year. So that's very exciting Also talk about his his his many friends. That are currently working on Broadway whether it's Jonathan Price. Tom Hairston or Charlie Cox who again was in the theory of everything he really came up with this amazing crop of of young a young talented actors who are all now like hitting their stride. I mean they've been hitting it for a few years but they were kind of ruling theater and film so that's pretty cool Ah You know if you've seen Eddie talk you know he's charming and self effacing and just always a delight so really thrilled that he came back on the podcast the talk about the aeronautics today other things to mention let's see other cool things you could watch that I've done recently.

It's turned out to be a pretty great year in film So hopefully you guys are enjoying doing The newest offerings as much as I am. And that's about it. Let me let me toss it to my my big old conversation with the Great Eddie Redman right now and with one last reminder minders to review rate and subscribed happy second fused. Police spread the good word. And I hope you guys enjoy this this chat. Can you believe Okay Eddie. It's been five years since he's been on the PODCAST has it. There's no I mean I've seen you thousand thousands in the Internet and the interim doing other things I guess making like doing happy second it will do again. Yeah it's five years since you broke broke the bird man action figure that still here. I God that was vicious of me. I'm with Michael Keaton so I'm going to say he can hash this out. I'm sorry I'm so excited. He's you probably got. Did you get to normal little bit on the surface and fleetingly and I liked him so much and we've got to scenes together in this movie but the film filming sorry currently. I'm really excited. I'm also looking at your table able things most terrifyingly. I'm sitting a poster for Willow Willow was yeah. I was taken to see when I was about eight years old right and I went to the Lou about twenty six times during Ed and my taken by grown up. She's not you're around. I find I was so terrified of that film. Queen by mortar is an imposing. was that her name. A wicked witch stealing ruling babies about a genuinely seeing that image is. Ptsd yes he has the Eddie's broken out into a cold sweat so is New York temporary home right. Now it is so my wife and I Have moved over here with other ones for four months and loving it absolutely loving it. So is this the first time you've lived in New York since since since radio so I did a play here. I feel say this point decade ago. Yeah and it's is as vibrant as ever filled with life and it's something about the CR- also one of the first film. My Dad's one of the first ones was good shepherd and we shot back here and it's the first time I've kind of wish the New Jersey but I I'm here for an age so what must also be obscene. Your life has changed quite a bit. You've got a four on family. You're you're a different. It's a different Eddie in some respects that's living living's actually a New York life right now and it's talking about all these restaurant the restaurant I'll see it also strikes me I was looking around. I see a fair amount of theater. Here I feel like everybody you've ever worked with is currently on stage on stage now. This is quite true. Yeah which is probably a sign saying that. I should so so Tom. Tom and Charlie Cox doing betrayal. London was fantastic and offer all the price on a hero. Stage yeah waiting for the errands doing go on ruse rates Aaron Tomatoes Doman Rouge. Have you seen. This is extraordinary spectacular as expect about clearly the tickets nine thousand dollars and are impossible to get. I'm going to have to pull as many restaurants in town right now. I get into that one two hours. Yeah Mockingbird I've got I've got plenty of theater and then this amazing play which was on in London called the inheritance. I'll just opening the again. I didn't see in London someone to catch all that to the West. So is is theater again. You've got you've got a lot going on at homes or something realistic at this point to get back to or as realistic and the book for Me With I. Suppose there's a certain sense with British actors there's this like Canon of I've parts that your mentor. Sort of play a lot of the Shakespeare and classics and when I started doing theater my first play London was an Edward Albee play with a goat and then I did John Logan's play read an Christopher Schiphol. Now they all new plays and I loved left having the writer in the room and getting to create characters sort of for the first time. Yeah and so. The last pair did which was major goes Richard the second. Ah since having a craving to a new play and finding what that is has been spoiled the ones you rattled off there. I've been so spoiled and I've had this weird thing in the theater. I mean films. I've done lots of sort of films that are hit or Miss Right but theater of the the difference with eateries you my way of choosing theaters. I always go okay. Worst case scenario right unit right to don't get on the. The price is a nightmare. The reviews a horrendous. No one comes and sees it like. Is there enough in the park and the player to still give you kind of sustenance continues safe for months when your paint. So where did that's quite kind of is decision to whereas with film there is an Alchemy. Which which I've never quite understood their scripts thought were brilliant? Yes end up. Being bad films their scripts though I thought bit dodgy the end up being good films. There's something in the process of making it. That is that is that is almost here which is wonderful. You mentioned and I've seen betrayal. I saw both in London in New York. Yeah Charlie and Tom do their thing along valley. Yeah so did. I know you knew Tom in school. Partly just on the circuit like like met. I'll tell tell you I met him. I met him when I was doing. It was the opening of the goat to separate Albie plant in London at the Alameda Theatre and Charlie had just finished doing and much in Venice with Chino and he came see the play and we were both we and clicked and became fast friends friends and then when he did theory of everything was kind of the most amazing in theory of everything because oversee Palestinian I had some showy apart and yet he grounded that film and this real man in wonderfully and so that was special for us. Does the Peer Group that you kind of got to know early on like whether it's like when you see Tom's career for is that what you would have like. Yeah he's going to be this like I mean. I walked out of the theater with him once and I saw I've never seen. Yeah I've never seen people reacted with any of us. Had Adore is that there was this troop. We were all auditioning. Whether it's Tom with Charlie overall Pattinson or Tom Sturridge Andrew Garfield we just for years we were scrappy. Hungry young actors like but but we were just going up a tiny parts. Tiny things we'd be like looking slightly kind of shovel wandering around Soho in London. All these these audition rooms in the basements of this underneath the edit suites and we'd go for these additions and you end up having catastrophic auditions and going to the pub and laughing about it afterwards and it felt. Ah We look back on it with great romance. Yeah it was probably horrendous and what was love news that you were what's been amazing from that group we've all won on some lost some and so and of course as competition and there's and over the years the wonderful things because everyone has sort of had an element of success. Now it's like everybody got not underdo and figure it out there pal. Also the wonderful thing back thing. Is You get to work with the older actors from the word. Go and you see and you hear from them in kind of mental larouche places that obviously careers in our world. They also late they never go. They never start in one place and end up going continuously being fantastic kind of ebbs and flows and the lovely lovely thing about working with L. Directors is the that's still doing and that's still passionate about it. And that you can have moments that hit at different times and parts that suddenly appear and then you can have periods when it's so. I think we will have a reassurance in that you mentioned like Jonathan Pryce who somebody that like like. When I was a kid I love? He was in Brazil and you mazing and urban been probably five five patches where I haven't seen them price on a film and like he's probably been working steadily for whatever reason right now. He's got the two popes odd way as well. So Joe Johnson is I. He gave me so he basically put me in this. Play the goat. This Avi play when I started. I'm really was a mentor. And I adore him and his wife Kate by he was also play and learn so much from him and continuously go and watch awesome onstage and do brilliant things on screen but but getting to then extraordinary thing when apart hits the right person whatever point in your career you are and seeing two popes which is a masterclass from both him and Anthony Hopkins assist. I find really emotional is very moved by it because Sir all Johnson's workers always been exceptional but for me this was sort of other level. Yeah now I will say we're talking about your your kind of your friend group. It's funny because like in a different way like obviously I talked to you guys to over the last ten years therapist therapy like I do feel feel like this weird like I'm rooting for all you guys. This connections like I knew you before like fantastic beasts happen tonight and I knew Robb way before I saw rob at a party this weekend. And I'm like your Batman and what happened. Yeah and it's great to sort of just like even be like to watch the ride. So wait is when you've been in it long enough like our our relationship with you for example it's this sort of we meet and these off environment. Yes and your kind person and you you have like warmth to that it is a sort of. It's lovely to but that's what the industry is is that you realize when you start out you feel like it's going to end with the next job and the wonderful the thing even doing it long enough that whether it's journalists or actors people human beings one person back to begin with it sales line as good so we should mention you mentioned felicity of who obviously you've redeemed on for this new one the Aaronow so when did you first meet felicity the city we contest she. I feel like we. We met at a party of a playwright. polly Stenham who was actually kind of almost a sort of ringleader in some ways of oatmeal of ringleader? But she housed a lot of these young reprobate actors when we were all starting outing out wonderful playwright screenwriter. I thought we met at her house once but flippity things. We didn't know digitally made an audition for film that never got made could mood indigo in which felicity was cast and she was telling me the other day. It was me Tom. Hardy and Andrew testing for this part opposite and Dominic Savage Mitch was directing it and we had to stay. He told me to stare into these is just to see if we had chemistry of two minutes and the thing occasionally when a review goes great chemistry feels very warming because there was is a period when it wasn't so and then but we really become close again so simply to the guys you know whether it was st st or Carey Mulligan Haley and all these sort of axes. I've what is we. We were powerless as well. So it's kind of it's wonderful getting to two with it's funny. I think when I saw you maybe it was for the last Motassedeq Beasts. I think we were just chatting and I was asking about this film and I was so like like under the. I didn't realize what this film was. I was like. Oh it's going to be a sweet story of just like hanging hot air balloon. He looks like a nice little romp. You're like no I'm dying and almost killed me. Yeah and yeah. It's basically it's like gravity in a hot air balloon. I mean it's what I loved about it. So when you read a script we're talking about Alchemy we'll makes I just read the script and there's a moment in the film where felicity client which may have glimpsed trailers. And she she you know she climbs on top of this balloon and she is literally on top of the world and I read the description of it and I said this time where everyone's questioning cinema and I want to see that I just WanNa see and sometimes the reason one chooses a job is competing beat to do with who you're working with. It can be to do the character. It can be collection things but for meals is wanna see that like I would like to be in a movie that happens in sort of a diesel fulfilled that for me and and and the weird mixture in this film of in the one hand you have the intimacy of two people confined to this to me. Talk to me to space. And then you on this canvas like this to reeling macro adventure so I thought those things kind of entry a clever kind of construct words essentially in real time. But you're flashing back to earlier portions of the ship. Yeah I mean there was a point where director wanted it because so the so the the the balloon journey takes place as you say in real time as a second when he wanted it to be exactly second to second second second and also. I think it's going to be based the timing if anyone's really guy I must be like Al Roker say movie. You're celebrating meter meter meteorology asses. His aides say he's been waiting for is the most British film ever. It's up to people in a balloon in tweed told me about the weather much. What did you? I've never hot air balloon. Yeah so I'M GONNA I'M GONNA call you on this so it's actually gas abilene. Mary's a difference just because so basically gas balloons are literally a balloon filled with hydrogen helium with ropes so touched to it attaching it to a basket or as hot air balloons. You can turn up the heat. Which Ritchie judges? How high and so the only way that you can let gasoline saloon? Down is by letting the gas out pulling out and lets the gas out God and it means that the only way that you can keep going higher is by letting sandbags out losing losing balanced anyway. Listen I made the film. And they'd built this gasping. They don't really existed in Britain anymore. So they built one which has to go through the same testing syrup lanes the aaronow test of good which is fine. which makes it sound really safe? But it was in no way saying and often bliss denied done all this research search on these nineteenth century balloonists and they all basically ended up dying and then suddenly after we did I fly in which they were being shot from how we are being shot from helicopters and drones and that was all very great and peaceful and beautiful and then try to land. We did crash into a forest forest and come hurtling down and flip very died and and also oh why did it not Kurt. Why did it not occur to me having read all this? Nineteen essentially knowing that basically the technology hasn't changed in one hundred and fifty s right. Why did I think it was gonna be different now? You know why they kept going back then let themselves go. Yeah that's the way. The oddest thing was that whenever you do film the Insurance Medical thing you do they want to check. You're not going to die of illness while you're doing it because because all this money has been invested in on this film that the insurance rigmarole they put me through till I run topless with things. Attached Voids Attached to my to see whether healthy enough and I love it. Basically put all the fat check that I wasn't going to get a stitch breathless but at the same point. They're very willing to to put into a death Mississippi. Anyway have you jumped out of a plane. Have you bungee jump any of that stuff. I'm not gonNA I feel like you did I saw. I'm not that guy but I know if I were to do I probably would jump out of a plane rather than Bungee jumping bungee jumping site at least as of osteopathy offer his plan. You're putting your trust in one expert. Not Too I have done is. I've like jumped off. I have paraglider off a cliff out to go. Take that judgmental race. The back with someone chasing you or was this just walk off actually skied off like a mountain okay. It's great there because you don't have to have the moment of going. Oh I'm jumping cliff. Because he just just gently ski and then it catches the catches the parachute behind you and then you all was attached to someone who wasn't but you you have a great yeah yeah. So what percentage of the actors that we've talked about what you WANNA be confined in a basket with for for months on guys. Do you know what are the ones. I've mentioned how it'd be very happy to to hang out in ALFALFA'S I haven't made any any of the Turks hard-core yeah so okay. So although I know what you're looking by omission now I can figure it out. Oh wait okay. So since we haven't had this kind of a chat post a remarkably posted the amazing a theory of everything. Oscar run. Did it. Did it change a lot for you personally personally. And professionally. In retrospect I mean what would it changed was it just gave you more choice because again the the other thing thing is the sort of The reality of our industry is all financial one the euro unless apparently I've never seen these lists and how financially viable. Oh you are internationally and whether small movies can be put together with and again with older actors and your your on a list a certain place and and and and you don't know where that is but your conscious that you're not being offered the work and then and then suddenly for a moment on top of that list and you get offered more things and again that'll change and shift so what it did. Is it allowed choice which I hadn't hadn't film for and and that but what's interesting about that is whereas at this time when we were all in so hone going out for auditions is what happens. is you get sent an email by agent. It says you know this is Elizabeth the Golden Age starring. Cate blanchet direct by shake Kapoor with Jeffrey Russian. Wow all those people are brilliant. Uh they want to addition for this part and so you go on a par I get it where suddenly what happens when you you is your now being sent me scripts before they may be directors attached or. Maybe you're the person who has to taste. I suppose is being challenged Allen Jr all right I whereas before a lot of caution when Koga machine but you'd also go well if these great quality people attached hatched than you. You'll sort of having to sort of make some of the calls and and that's been curious kind of loved it in some ways and The judge of a script like I read. Let's do you know what my I often have an instinct. Alfred Molina said something when we were doing read which is used to read a script and added. There's a moment where you feel nausea. which is when you basically realize you've got to do it? You go from reading. Reading is an objective thing to kind of see I feel sort of the same But then what's lovely is when there's a no brainer which like for example. The film to Chicago Seven where where this thing. Just leaps off the page in a way that that you just got some of you know outdo craft service thing. What's that one I like because I'm so excited for that for reasons? Aaron Sorkin. Yeah I don't have a bucket list Gracie hey this is quite often. When you're acting people go what are we going to do the act together and I don't really have any answers to those questions other than our sorkin so when this came around? It's yeah it was a moment when the phone calls happened. And then I'll read a sentence crypto. Please please be pace because it was and for those who don't know I mean I I know I remember saw Daca. And he was by Brett Morgen many years ago about these guys Antiwar activists. This is a problem. It's been around around for a while to Spielberg was going to do it at one point. It's an amazing ensemble. You're playing Tom. Hayden Antiwar Activists Talked to me a little bit about. Also here's something that occurred to me. I don't think I've ever I do at least in a while speaking American accents. Yeah how's that GONNA. Yeah so I had years of doing these tiny little films Sundance Yohannan playing angle. The Americans and on theater on stage you know read playing America and so basically my whole ten years but the known surroundings so it doesn't feel strange to me. Sounds a good sign but but it's but it's also nice been wonderful getting to workweeks. I've actually love dialect because I tend to approach it in a way. It's a bit like playing the piano or learning a dance Mike. I'm already cropped onset and it takes me forever to learn the move but once I've really got embedded in me I can kind of and and so what I love a- as an actor yours trying to work out. What you'll route through character is what the process is? I'm what's lovely when you doing specific accent. Is you start in a really technical Michael level months beforehand is how I live today and then by the time you're playing embedded freeze you anyway. So yeah did you question. I don't it's okay. We we both are extemporaneous the perils of this podcast on. Did you know that much about this history like this. I knew nothing about it and then I read the script and it's you know is a. It's a film about these antiwar activists it's about the sort of the state making an example of them. I've got to find a way to talk about the film. It's a courtroom thriller thriller but it is the most scintillating writing. I'm sure that I've I've I've read in an age and it has this thrilling kind of urgency to and and at its appropriate symbol. And that's what I suppose was something that I hadn't realized that I was whether it's there have everything. All the Danish girl or arnauts beasts is much more of an ensemble but but to get to work with this a ray of actors. I knew that because of the quality not of the writing that Aaron would attract wonderful rice but the film's not since attached to it for a couple of times and it's and you the that's been quite emotional already. You're quite right invested in it. Got What Sasha Baron Cohen and just Karai Lines Juggling love lovely actor shop And Giancarlo Lynch and and uh-huh Michael Keaton. I it's really failed to the brand and rylance literally gave me my first ever job playing violin in twelfth night opposite him paying Livia almost twenty years ago and that was that got me an agent and a career and getting too because a lot of it is courtroom at the Franklin Jenner is getting to watch Franklin Jello and Mark Rylance masterclass. It's a genuine near that kind of. Yeah because I didn't realize he was playing William Kuntsler who I as a New Yorker I grew up like. That's a I can see right well anyway so also you. We've also made light of the fact that like part of what I present many people I think appreciate about. You is like a your kindness but also your self deprecating and sort of like very own your nervousness this attack. That's how can be summed up right if there was a sound that embodied anywhere near arsenic the flooding. But here's the thing okay so even post-oscars that's not something that we're you can like. If you're you're nervous moments on set you can you can think like I have got. I've reached the top. I been celebrated no because because you know the look the thing about acting. His anyone can have an opinion Because you're playing humans and so any human can stop and go. I think that's it's unreal. I don't like that and and in acting you're made aware of it people and they tell you lovely things of course and they tell you when you when you think you've you've felt and so what's so it's a life of any. I suppose a person working in the public is something for for for people's criticism but the interesting thing is that no one is as critical. I heard Kate Blanchett said actually it was interesting to see again from people that you think middle. Yeah but you're no one's credit 'cause you're by yourself and so what sometimes tricky acting is when people are going. I don't I agree. I'm not sitting here and the weird the thing about Phil more than anything is you can't do anything to change it. So you in the hands of others. And that's what I'm I and do you own people go here. We go hundreds of takes you really. Don't I don't particularly something like I'm the silicon movie which is a low budget indie film in some ways you you get out and there is and then you just have to wait and see the things that you're upset with worse than fifth you can try and mend. It is the constant appeal theaters. You can kind of go and have another iterative. It's sort of like. Yeah what's also you're making a Komo struck bug actors that have to make choices on that first day on the set that you can't like there's only so far you can you can vary now from where that initial choice. Well this is consistent and then you you talk about an pull. Dino is a good friend and he was directed a film recently and was talking about how riveting actress is being in the edit suite and seeing from all points of view. You see isn't actor you. You have an instinctive choice that you've sort of created in a vacuum because you've been working by yourself tonight and when you have four takes you choose those four takes to mine that specific choice because you've got this idea but you want to make sure the camera captures the best version of it or you just let it go for different completely different various and hopefully consistently listening listening to what the other actors are giving you back and it was interesting hearing his take on that having having step from behind the camera. So what does he as a director want does he want. Yeah yeah when he says well. I think it's I think it's more complicated than one or the other. It's riveting to to find the and I think the more I sort of. Ah I find that all of that compelling an actor who said I'm totally misquoting. Because of this I was told secondhand recently as of one of the things that makes acting unfulfilling. Sometimes when you go home that's is just a graveyard of of untapped ideas and so robin guy all those ones but all of these other things have been at number. Actually that may be slightly kind of excessive. But I hope he's right there talking to mark rylance about it. The other day he described it is and he's such beautiful optimist and he was like thinking of it more as a meadow of growing ideas. I try to take. That was on told him that recently. Recently my wife and the House and she's a great gardener and she. I'm super impatient and not Gregg Allman. She said I just thirty some seeds down. And just just make meadow of men and I thought you just had to rattle these seeds around and then transported. You had to subdue meadow died. Sounds like Komo is telling me about. This meadow of identity Meadow Slam. That's your nickname. Is there a point now. Still in every film where you even. If it's not a rational thought you think you're going to get fired. You think it's not gonna I think I'm sort of weirdly weirdly a little bit but what happens definitely when it started like for example theory of everything. Now I was cost without an audition I was has cost through a long discussion and I think there were various other actors that Jones March two one Taylor spoken to and sweet. He cost me without addition. which is? It's amazing but got it would have been terrifying to try and audition a Stephen Hawking before having done four months research short but I do remember day one on set I I hear it. Is You say well those interesting in the Danish go we did some tests very early. F- F- partly. Because I wanted to Tom. Hooper wanted to to see just months before we started filming and then yeah and so quite often for example. Now it'll be when you're auditioning with other actors who are auditioning for the directors will get a first glimpse something in your way is. That was a are. You still have to audition can you. Are you non. Not No not at the moment but that is we've been through the traumatic dish. We get through but at the same point as I always say to. You know. I think what the other thing that happens is within within an industry. Your seen in a certain way and I've done as we've said like years of dealing English period dramas and I always make it absolutely clear the as you just said. You haven't done American accent for wall in fact that those little films that you've done the people that you care about the directors you'd like to work with obviously haven't seen those because they were tiny films they weren't necessarily right but so I'm always an advocate of you've put yourself taper to to to prove people uh-huh yeah you're you are capable sign different so I i. There's no kind of relation pulling any and you've watched what your friends have have done it. Re- crofting people's interpretation of them. Yeah is so. In retrospect what in the decision process fantasy beasts was there much doubt at all or was it like this is. There's too many grows. There's too many obvious great benefits to this to have much concern that I got ought to read the first script and I just I love the magic of the world of it and I found the character unique because he was he felt like an anti stereotype really of in the midst of a of a of a big sort of movie. Well that's not the protagonist and so that was. That was my question and I've got to say I have loved loved making them that it's a really creative bunch you do keep in touch with cast between the big as a beast of what's up briefest Allison's currently in Australia I think so he's back in New York. God knows Astra is some knows as this makes me so happy being one of them do a great deal seeing except for the fact that when we came into your madness wrangling as percent me Mike Dodd. Hey this wasn't say I've got some choice videos by Ezra to uh-huh randomly amazing from the streets of like random streets around the world and I'm like what are you doing. What is amazing? Even come together I some I know yeah so is it. Sounds like the third one is moving forward. Steve Clovis is now helping to right. It's the this is exactly what I've heard the same thing I really don't know I don't know any more than that other than it's got to be exceptional. It's gotta be like it's got to be something wonderful because it's hotch an astonishing world and it's a world that I loved in the Potter Films Swimming and and there's a fan base. It's just people that love that women have expectations for it and we need to hit those excited to go into it with a with everyone. Having Faren ringing all senators and wanting to make it the best we can be sensitive at all or do you watch serve the reception of it. It's so funny. 'cause the second film I think made like six hundred fifty million. Yeah and there was also the there's some perceptions that it wasn't as great as I one table for whatever reasons for better worse hair all of that and and and the reason when people say you re Chris I do because it's sort of galvanizes you and that's why I was totally open to all of that and and and and I think that everyone was because again because jk rollings created something that is so. Is this weird thing where world's reach of status with that almost owned by the by the Argonne was this. Yes they feel that they are right as a fan of of of complicated thing where it's called still how how a baby and her imagination. The expectations are high. And so I think we're we're going to go in with guns blazing. I just hope he ones. I just hope you guys supposedly it set at least partially in Rio. Ya just let you guys go to Rio. At least I mean if you're going to have a film in Rio any should get go to Rio for can tell me about it. Let's in his speed walking down. Copacabana Lauro's going Polit Pale red main Ford slash commander. Skin there's your down Cococabana combined with like I don I I like it. Yeah I mean to be honest. If what you're saying hang is can you actually go and shoot locations. Can I just make it absolutely clear that I have fought hard to go to every I I sort of right emails relatively consistent consistent to offer juices going so you just on like scouts in this country looking at what the so that you can rebuild. Build indies if we all shooting which we are shooting I think quite low in leavesden. Yes they are rob and Zoe and pull will are all shooting Batman in leaves. And that's the way I have a busy pitching for like although I think that's been caused as well now is it's like basically. I could come dressed as news out. I could be the anti circuses. Alfred Alfred's Powell Harvey Dent Harvey Dent. Yes they're still looking for that are they. Okay desperation the desperation one brothers making it. They know me they do. If I was crossing their mind they would have. They would have called happy freezing. I think the fact that we're shooting at the same time that's why are you okay with do you feel like you still need to check the superhero the box or is it so I honestly it's script script I would never. I know that sounds city but you don't don't say anything. There's I mean like your buddy benedikt like you could have done dr strains that make sense like I feel like I have. The physical presences is Ben. Does you know he's got like the. We've never seen him in a speedo on the Copacabana. Yeah I okay how to make sure Essequibo does what nevermind. Nevermind the right. Do you know what's what's coming up after you're in the middle of this year just I started getting started halfway through shooting Jeremy Strong in this movie as well if you want accession astronaut Jeremy for many years and he is just so wonderful in this again talk about an after finding the right part of the right. Yeah and so. We're right he was pointing out. We're literally halfway through. I've still got my Michael. I actually break the Birdman Wings. I don't think I did. It wasn't like you cracked it enhances your ear need let you picked it up. It was probably already precarious construction. Okay that wasn't on purpose. I thought I just heard the I remember losing the institute. Those are gone. I think those are your passing off like you didn't steal it but we know now to check your trailer on the set of this it spilled with Saas Harlot Shit everywhere I love. It is the thing you're always welcome here came on set. Yeah Yeah that was that was pretty cool he spielberg what. I'd met him once when when I was doing red and and I was really hung over. So they have this thing on Broadway where they do like Sunday matinees which in the UK. You don't work on Sunday and it was the first week and I had done the first week and I'd sort the forgotten that was the Sunday shows how got to Saturday. We have two shows. I've gone out and it'd been pressed week and gone out and got really really obliterated and then turned up the next really one of the only time I've ever been slightly out of on stage and there were only two of us on stage so I felt like I was floating the whole way through the play and then at the end as I was coming down past past. Alpha from Lena's dressing rooms I hate. Stephen likes buckle with shame so I did. I haven't that was about ten years ago. I hope you didn't apologize. I I was on the verge of just scoped into a back room. Yeah he's clocked me. That's Yeah Yeah No. I'm excited to see west side story. Not Saying that he had an amazing tale that. I'm glad you're enjoying your time in New York with Mr Aaron Sorkin just talking for hours. People probably checked out of his paws about no not always welcome here. It's not gonNA be five more years before you're back and as you can see there's plenty in the office to Karen just has. Has this office been photographed. I talk about. How can you be this office in Los Creepy things a mixture fo- sort of Mash Mash up photo of Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper? That should be perfect and yet. Somehow he's very has jay's mcevoy's professor triple X. Business Card. This is a sketch I did with him. You know. I'm always trying to get into one of these sketches. Soy We did a Hoffa powerful scratching the surface. How long have done saying is it's good? It's good you'll have time. I'll take care though I I did this one recently with James Corden who adore I love. It hasn't oh I saw the one one. I think he's going to be so humiliating the levels of humiliation that we'll find the sweet spot of humiliation record. I'll ring you back in from your book about an idea. We'll take care of you. I'm here for you. Shannon the non sexual escapades another. Wow think about. Is that thing that that's what we did. Check out your youtube channel around with the kids around the Dow frankly so obsessed interesting anything. That's on the screen though prison coming soon the old enough to enjoy. It's funny so my kids. I feel like the second. You've seen anything Pixar thingy you can't go back so the moment there on on the old Robin Hood which is my favorite cartoon ever and Irish. My daughter is really into that but but she's through subliminally throughout the kids as singing let it go and so now. She's in New York. Michael Grandad's WHO's right hundred directed frozen on Broadway so my my wife and I decided that we were thinking. We probably should let her see frozen right in order she can then go and watch the Elsa for Halloween or anything like that or listen. Listen to she joined. She actually did Mary poppins. She's obsessed with no problems returns an obsessively as she did send the photo of Irish dressed as Mary poppins too early. Because I said was the amount of effort into probably emily creating which I think is amazing performance by the way runs. Iris was like save that society. She's broken harmed Brennan the slack. She doesn't have a talking umbrella. It runs the family like father like daughter. They break break. Things can leave this podcast. No horror and came in feeling that way. Okay get no progress just stasis stasis no progress so so you can vibe. You're trying to say do nothing will change. Go see the guys come goes through the aeronautics if you come away with one thing besides our neuroses it is to go and particularly if you have a fear of heights yeah yeah for me I have a fear of heights fair.

Dating Advice for Naturists

"On this episode of the nature living show nature's dating. Soda. The nature's Vivian show is brought to you by barracks. Family nature starts at barrow. We offer traditional nature values in a modern setting your body, free your mind. WWW dot tarot Stott. Welcome. Dear listener to episode one. Oh, five of the nature living show. My name is defended shine. I'm your host for this podcast. And I'm also the owner of barracks, family nature spark and today, we're going to be talking about nature's dating for the purpose of this show. We're mostly going to focus on heterosexual men looking to date heterosexual women. Not because his no possibilities nature as for the other options. But because that's the big. The question that I keep getting everybody keeps getting single men the problem with single men who don't want to be single. And they're the ones who seem to have the most issues, although as I review the notes of the stuff, I'm going to be talking about and the advice, you're getting I think most of it actually applies to everyone. But we have it's easier to focus on what is the biggest issue. And so that's what we're going to be talking about today. But if anybody wants to do another episode on other combinations. I'd be happy to do. It. Just contact us through the show. And I'd be happy to have a chat and talk about the challenges that others may face. So the the challenge of single men single men have problems I understand I use had it was time where I was single man trying to attend nature events and often I was rejected and and it's not fun in. And yet I understand the challenges that people face a single men. When there is a problem that barracks. It is a single man who causes the problem. Most of the time I would say ninety nine percent of the time. But I would also say the vast majority of single men come to don't cause any problems at all. So I understand why club owners become sensitive to single men, but that's not really single men under the problem when you exclude all single men you're throwing throwing out the proverbial baby with the bathwater. So but having said that single men are often looking for relationships, and it's challenging generally, you don't meet single men. No mean single women at clubs. I mean, there are single women at the clubs there are certainly single at Baruch settled quite a few of them. But many of them are coming there because they looking for a date and to approached him could be bothering them. And if people keep doing them could cause them to be. Talked to for harassing people and in a worst-case scenario kicked out, but that rarely happens because most people recognize Wednesday causing problems to that they should stop. If they wanna keep coming any wanna keep visiting. So if you can meet people at club and the image. You know, it does happen the image. That is the image for this show that I picked is of a couple that did date for a while. They were both single they both met at barracks, and they were dating and so it worked for them. But it's not the best place to go. There's there's a lot of single women. If you're a single man who are not at barracks and might be interested. You have to understand that fourteen percent. According to two thousand fourteen survey that defenestration of kidney nature did fourteen percent of people and it's fairly equal across both genders are. Interested in nature them that they said, they would go or have gone to nature's beach or club. So in the GT HA degraded trial in Hamilton area where it is about seven million people that's about nine hundred eighty thousand people or four hundred ninety thousand women and four hundred ninety thousand men, so let's run it out to one in ten. It doesn't mean that you have to talk to ten women. If before you find a woman who is interested in nature them statistically anyway. But from what I've seen in especially now with online dating you talked a lot of people you check them out and on that note on online dating. There are a number of nudist or nature's dating sites. Most. In fact, I think that's a spectrum all, but I 'cause I haven't seen any real. But as his size suspect all of them are scams. And I think the blogger natures of color put a link to all of the things I refer to our show notes on our website. Probably summarized the experience best as they said in their June, twenty sixteen blog injury, the process works this way, you sign up an E mail is centrist a few hours later, saying three women were interested all attempts to view pictures of the women or chat with them requires payment. And then the women are all online constantly, but never respond to any wings or other temps to get their attention. Any attempt to click on other members led to a payment screen as well. It seems that so many people are online, but no one ever attempts to contact them. And that all the female buddies that they had had similar profile Felicity Jones, who's been on the show before number of times. Also did a blog entry about this where she talked about. How all these sites are basically scam. Md in her November twenty fourteen post which also put a link to she talks about nudist dating. And how there is a service called dating factory and people that create templates and you can quickly create your own dating site by uploading images. And it's really a they're just ways of trying to separate desperate single men from their money, and even the mainstream sites have been caught doing this while not all of them. But certainly Ashley Madison you've probably heard of them admitted to having a fake profiles fake female profiles to lead on a single men. So how do you do it? Well, the solution is to as I was alluding to earlier is to address women not as nudists or nature, but as people trying to find the ones who are interested in the topic. So I thought I would start by interviewing a single woman who is nature's to a regular person barracks. And we so we talked to Melissa to get some advice from her saying my name is Melissa Conan IM at twenty five years of age. I have been working here at barracks for the last four summers here and their place has. Incredibly changed my life. So the the topic here is about dating in helping especially men who'd like to date somebody. So do you have any experience in that area? Definitely do I wouldn't say I have as much experience as a few other people or everybody else that we all have experiences, and those are incredibly important, none the less. I have I would say I've had to serious relationships over the last seven years. So I can say I've had some experience not good. So when so tell me when what do you do in terms of dating right now, you're single where do where do you meet people? Is it online is it in person? How do you find interesting people? All that's always fine. I think in today's society things have I think definitely been changing on how we interact and how we meet people. I generally, and I prefer to like to meet people in person I like to get a very good first impression. I think it's more personal meeting people in person versus say meeting people at a bar meeting. People online meeting people in these casualties may be that we have now versus maybe what we haven't had in the last ten years when I started in high school, maybe a dating or introducing myself to men was very different than it is now especially with the the media and the social sites and the dating sites and the different engines that we have for meeting people now again, I definitely like to meet people in person, I find that more personable. So have you used the online services? I have I definitely have. I think I've I've went on maybe one date with one person I say maybe about a year and a half ago. And it was it was different. It was something that I've never done, and I found it very misleading in some retrospect, and that's only my opinion. Some people have had very good success stories with some dating site. So I can't take away from that. So what does a lot of single men that would like to because they're passionate nature toward like to meet woman to share that passion with the number of single women is perhaps fairly small. And usually when you go to nature's place, you can't really hit on people because that's kind of frown upon, you know, people don't come here. It's not a meet meet up place. And so you wouldn't necessarily want to be hit on by people that can be creepy or not depending on the situation. So what advice would you have for men who would like to meet somebody, and who are they themselves natures and would like somebody that you can share it with, you know, the honestly, that's actually a very good question. You know being in the nation's community, again, just like you said, it's not a meet-and-greet. We do have to try to find other communicational ways and appropriately and very modestly. To approached people. And I think the best way to do that is honestly within conversation just friendly lights. Good conversation. You know, doing your best to kind of stay away from the the comments and. Or the let's just say, yeah. Say the comments on people's bodies or their comments about appearances just because we are nude, and we do want to kind of make sure that people aren't openly getting. Openly getting hit on or openly being made uncomfortable. Especially in these nature's parks, especially here at barracks. We are a family nature park. And we do want to approach the values of this place correctly. And we do have children here. We have young women. Young men, the youth adults the elders we have a very big variety of people here so learning how to maybe cater to all of them. Maybe sometimes similarly or maybe in different ways, you know, again. I would definitely start with very easy light. Good polite conversation stay away from the the comments on appearances. And maybe kind of go from there. I think you'd be surprised on what good conversation could kind of do instead of poking at the first things that we notice about people and generally those things appearances. So there are far more people general that are not nature's to nature. It's so you think it's possible to just be approaching in dating non nature, and then bring it up and convert them if you will. That's the dream. Isn't it? Another very very good question. You know, me personally. I would I I'm very honest about my nature ISM. I was very honest with my family my friends. I'm very honest about the with it about the people that I meet or whoever I socialize with. I find the less honest. You are or willing to be open about it might lead people to believe in have certain thoughts about maybe like what you're doing. I feel like the more honest that you are the more. Intrigued people are potentially in the right ways. Yeah. What? So what what do you think? Generally, whether you're nature star, not women are women that is I don't think there's much of a difference in terms of whether you are nature nine Tim's of what appeals to you with with a guy. So what to guys do wrong? What do they do? Right. When they're trying to meet you. Oh. It's a good one. And I really think it depends on the place sometimes say if you're in a bar or maybe a restaurant say you're here at the nature park. I think all of these different places could bring different approaches, and sometimes maybe more negative approaches in certain areas. But then again, yes in any situation that you are approached you could get pros and cons, regardless of the atmosphere that you are in. But I do think. I think with today's society. Unfortunately, this kind of comes back even to a little bit of like the dating sites we have a thing with swiping right swiping left, and generally those things are solely based off appearances. And I find that is where men and women adults youth children generally tend to go wrong is that we sometimes approach people based on their appearances or think that they want to be complemented or validated with some form of physical appearance. You know? And I think if we learned how to socialize maybe on a different level versus basing our first instincts off of how people look, I think we'd get a lot more. I think we'd get better results. So if somebody a lot of dating happens online now, so. At least initial meeting. So if some a young man wants to create a profile, what do you think they should put in? What should should they not put it? I think that's kind of hard to say. Yeah. Because we want people to kind of want them to live their life. You want them to be whoever it is that they are you don't wanna stray or tell people to not right certain things about themselves. So might be a little bit of a hard line from one person may be to another. I do think things should be maybe a little bit more personal open, and honest, I think we have a little bit of a hard time with honesty, and it's in the kind of retrospect of were frayed of what people are going to think or do we want to exploit ourselves. What are people going to think or am I going to get the lot of women that I really want? If I just be myself in honest. I don't think we give ourselves like enough credit that we're enough. So I definitely think honesty. S'more open-minded try not to be too self critical on our selves in just kind of writing about who we are are better interests, the things that maybe we like doing maybe maybe some of the more personal things in the things that we're actually looking for in relationship. So do you think this should write their nature in the profile or thinking of your your textile friends out there and how they might react to that? Or is that just a little too much, and it would scare people away. You know, what it's kind of inevitable it's unavoidable. Sometimes if there's going to be people that are going to get away. There's gonna be people that are going to be intrigued about it, regardless. Sometimes of what we do those always gonna be that pro and con situation, and I do remember something used to fan mentioned to me on my first year of working here. And essentially was you asking me if I was comfortable in being in certain, the news magazines or some of the advertisements and stuff like that. And you mentioned the concern of people taking some of the photos, maybe incorrectly and is true, regardless of our intention. There's always going to be people out there that take things maybe not the way that we are trying to portray it. So. As long as you are comfortable with what you were doing and the expressions that you are expressly expressing sorry. I think it could kind of go both ways having people maybe write it in their profiles or not having people right in their profiles. I do personally. Agree that I would I would probably tell people right off the bat. It's not something that I'm ashamed of. It's something that I'm very proud of. It's something that I feel like intrigues people. And I want people to be intrigued in the right way. So if they ever even had questions like I would like them to be able to come to me and be able to ask me those questions. So me personally. I would have no problem writing something like that in my profile, and I think it would make things a little bit more. Yeah. Personally intriguing. I think it could open up a lot of doors for people. I think again me not being ashamed of it. Gives a little bit of a good impression out there as well. So I would definitely write that in. But since single women at nature parks are rarity. And and ones who want to date are also a rarity, and there's much more people in the outside world who are not nature. I I said earlier how fourteen percent of Canadians said they were just a nature them. And so that was nine hundred eighty thousand people and four hundred ninety thousand women in the GT area. I wish they all came to Aeros. And but they don't not even one percent probably come to barracks on regular basis. So you have to date outside of that. And so the way to do it is to understand. How non nature's women who might be interested by react. So I found a Christine and Christine is non nitrous to even know she's expressed some interest in it. And I asked her she was single recently. And I asked her how dating was in asked for some advice for single men looking to meet people good morning. So my name is Christine, and I am thirty four years old, and I was a single mother, and I have three children, and they are currently under the age of eleven so quite a difficult age to be getting out and doing things that's true. That's a little challenging for the dating. But yeah, you did date for about a year. Yes. I did. I was in a relationship with their father for ten years after I came out of that deter to the dating sites because it was extremely hard to be getting out. And I was dating for about a year until I found the person home currently with and so which which dating sites that use what did you find most? Actually, I used bumble was might go to that one. There. I seem to enjoy the most because most individual. Nls. They the you can match them. And the woman has to be the first one to speak to you. So it's sorta gave me some time to review the profile. Take a look at them figure out if it was worth not even worth the chat. But if I want to pursue the chat, which then would mean that I had a higher chance of actors trying to talk to person so sorta saves on time, especially for the men's point of view by sending all these random messages and not getting any responses LC is plenty of fish. And actually, I only use that one twice the first person who I met on there. They were okay. And we got along fine. But it just didn't work out. And that's actually where I met my fiance on there. But it for whatever reason I wasn't a huge fan of the site. And because a lot of men will bombard there's a lot of messages as being shot at you. And when I went on that is just the way he phrased his message. He's he took the time to read my profile and said something along the lines of. Hey, christine. I see that you're on here. And just wanted to send you this message. If you feel free to chat, please message me back. If not have a great day, for whatever reason that spoke to me without to saying, hey, how you baby looking good or whatever a lot of men would say, but the fact that he took the time actually caught my interest, and I was only on there for maybe half an hour, and I met him and logged off and that was it. So the habe you're so hot is not a good way to get your attention at. No, although women do you wanna feel attractive that probably isn't the best way. We do get a lot of. Hey nice. Love your is love. And that's that's nice, and that's fine. So I'd probably go with that route love your hair. Love your is like your smile things. Like that is a little bit more proper to be saying, I would believe to a woman opposed to. Hey, you're so sexy out sort of sounds like something that you sent to everybody. Right. And what got you though is. Who paid attention to your your profile your profile actually only thing set on? There is not everyone's Cup of tea. And so he did put a little point in there saying that he something along the lines of how he knows I'm not everyone's Cup of tea, and I can't remember exactly what the wording is a habit saved somewhere on my phone. But so that's kind of he took the time to actually look through it and take a look at it and message me with regards to oppose it to give me a one liner. So once you respond because the intro was is good. What works what works well for getting keeping the relationship developing. Well, I'll speak with a like with regard to anybody who I dated for more than a couple of weeks. Just because there's so many different approaches that you can take more. So it was for me. I was looking for my best friend. So things that we had in common was a good point a topic things that we enjoy doing. We talked about our children. We talked about. Future thoughts. Like, maybe we can go and visit here not that. I'm saying to jump on the first week say, hey of has that too before. Hey, we're we're hitting it off like let's fly away. Go to Vegas was fire way. Go in here that a lot to the Vegas trip. A lot of guys that actually come on and say, hey, like a couple of weeks later, take a trip to Vegas, and I even said to some of my friends was it this Vegas thing. They just want to take you away. And and so I was suggested if you're going to start talking about future plans like that wait a couple of months, I before you actually know the person but women enjoy feeling that you're actually taking the time to get to know them get to know their thoughts their beliefs into make sure you have some common ground so sending dick pic right off the bat. Not a good way. No. And we've had quite a few of those. And actually, I'll tell you a story of one of my more humorous ones. Somebody actually sent me a picture of their genitals next to a water bottle to show the girth in size of it. And I remember I was at a family FAM family cottage thing, and I remember I pulled it out, and I showed my brothers. And I showed my parents. I never sent attending my friends 'cause I would never disrespect somebody to start sending that stuff out into the to open world. But I did show it to my family on my phone, and we kind of had a chuckle at it. Because we just couldn't believe that some people what they'd send you right? So many goes do it must. It makes me think it must work sometime. The thing is that there are sites that for individuals who are just looking for sex than who are just looking to show off their junk. So for me, I'm not sure why people would use a dating site for that. Because the so many other places that you can go to fair though. But as a woman do think, even if he were looking for sex that would impress, you know, not really. So it doesn't really matter. What the what the sizes are so many different shapes and sizes that I don't think that makes a huge difference. So what other things did guys do that are wrong? Asking for certain pitchers ahead. Somebody who has nonstop asking me to pose in different positions or want you to wear a dress like to take a picture, and it just it's like, okay? I get at once or twice may be. You're having an evening, and it's like, okay. Try something on from visits later on when you get to know them a little bit more. Okay. And you want to do that. But it got to appoint where he started asking all the time. And I was like buddy like I have a life. I have a family. I have a house to take care of them working. I don't have time to be your private model. Right. So. Something like that gets a little bit frustrating or men that are too needy of how to few of that to the constantly need to be hearing from you. And they even if you're not responding back to them. They just want. They just keep sending messages and that gets a little bit frustrating to if the person's not responding back to you either. They're busy or they don't have an interest in you. So I think that there's nothing wrong with if you feel the person's dropping off the face of the earth saying did I do something wrong. This'll be my last message. If I don't hear back, right? So you can get some sort of closure on it. But I wouldn't keep on hounding them to talk to you. The so many individuals out there that you can be seeing that I wouldn't waste too much time on something like that. You noted nature just but you not opposed to nature ISM. Now, I have a few times. So if a person's nature in it's important to them. How do you think you should handle that maybe they should approach it gently because it's the same thing like somebody being a vegan or somebody having huge relig- religious beliefs. You don't want to be pushing your views in your what your beliefs are onto somebody. Everybody has their own things that they're into. But at the same time if it's important to you wanna you wanna share that with your partner? So I would say I'd wait to see how the relationship develops. If it's going to be something that you think is going to be serious. Obviously, let them know into say at some point even before it gets to Sears point. You can say, hey, I go to nature park the source that I do on my spare time gauge the reaction either. They'll be interested in it. Or they won't if they're not interested in it than maybe just wait a couple a month and then recycle back around to topic. Before coming back to that. So do you think is it? Okay. To put it out there on your profile, or I would say it is okay to put it on there. But maybe I wouldn't come straight out and say, hey, AMA trista, maybe you can say, hey, I might like to spend my days walking the beach going to movies going to bear oaks sort of slip it in there. So if people know what it is, they know and all of a sudden they've gone there. They know about it. And if they care to look it up, they can look it up and see what it is. But at least you're not pushing it on them almost like vegan saying ham vegan. Nobody cares. Nobody wants to know are here that a million times. But if you maybe name restaurant that you like going to vegan restaurant anybody that's into that will. No. But it's not being shoved down their throat to say over and over again to you. So as a relationship starts to evolve, and you want to obviously share that your nature. Passion with them. How would you convince them? How would you bring it up? Maybe what I would do is let them know again. The gauge the reaction once we've passed that point. Maybe if your partner feels a little bit uncomfortable. You can do it at home. You can hang out and watch a movie on the couch and try doing a naked movie night something where they feel a little bit more comfortable because not being put out to the entire world. I know that a lot of people do have a lot of insecurities about themselves. They may have scars stretch marks or not be as fit of half the people that you see. But at the end of the day, I feel a lot of women is even thinking that this when I was going on vacation, I'm not in the best shape that I have been in my life. But I went on a vacation recently just to a hotel the had a water park. And I I I don't really care if people think so I'm like, screw it. Like, I'll throw on my became even though I'm not as in good shape as when I had it, and I went out there. And I'm looking at all the other people who are there and everybody out there. They weren't perfect. There's no woman who has sought out there who I was like, man. Like she's perfect. So I think that maybe showing them some nature's magazines may be leaving laying around. And if they feel the need to look at them, they might see that. Hey, I might not be perfect. But nobody is right. And maybe they can see that and feel more comfortable in their own skin knowing that everybody has certain flaws about them. Yeah. That would be probably a good approach gentle approach to start start the process of getting them in the mindset that it's okay in that. It's something that's easy going in if it's not working out, and you don't like the person what's the right way to and that out to break up somebody. I'd say just to be honest. Yeah. I don't mean just even break up like you're you're casually dating in meeting somebody. So like stop answering them ignore them. Personally. I never I never have done that. I've actually even had people who have said to them that it was over. And like let wasn't gonna be seeing them as very clear, and they keep on messaging me and eventually I would answer them back. And I'd be like listen all the need some closure on this. What are the questions that you have? And so many people even asking what like come strands at what did I do wrong? Remember, there was one guy. I said to him because you were putting down your access, and it was a turn off to me because he was constantly talking bad about the women that he saw in the past. And I said, and I just think to myself how what would you say about me if things in workout like, I wouldn't wanna be with somebody who has us negative feelings about their the past relationships. So there's a lot of I personally, I was very open on open person. So I was suggested telling people like, hey, listen, like your. Great person. But I don't feel that we're going down the same path in life together. I'm looking for something a little bit different. And just putting it in. If they want to still be friends with you. Great. And if they don't then that's fine. While the reality is that you have to meet a lot of people a lot of people you wouldn't want to spend your life with. How many people did you probably just guessing because machine on a number? Did you did you talk to talk to my gosh. For every one guy. I'd meet I remember used to have a process about it. It would be that. I'd probably filter to like matching with about. Because keep in mind. I only had every other weekend today because I have my kids. So I would filter down like the week before right back when I got my kids, and I'd go through and at match with a whole bunch of people. So be about maybe fifty people out of those fifty may be about ten conversations with Steck, then at focus it down to maybe three people and I'd meet one for the every other weekend. So that way, but it wasn't. I wasn't telling the other ones that I was going to meet up with them. So it was that way. I wouldn't waste anybody's time at go through pretty fast, a meet up with the other person who has meeting with might see them again in two weeks, and then after pretty much, but a third time I method if mathm- third time at had a pretty good idea as to whether or not we had stuff in common. If I want to see them again as I do the math sounds like not even meeting people you mid dozens. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So good the more than twenty over the air. It's it's nothing personal. It's just not the right people. Right. Took that long to find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. No, I still. Yeah. I still know people to this day who are still on dating sites, and they're still having a hard time in it's men to that. I still speak to and they will tell me that they just can't seem to find anybody who they click with. Yeah. And it's hard and especially the. This day in age everything's online. So is different like way back in the day. You a meet people a things that you'd have a common interest in whether that would be I don't know volunteering at an animal shelter or whatever are even going to barracks. But like the thing is a lot of people go there as couples already right, but back in the day, a lot of single people would go out to things, and you can meet them. But now, we're all stuck behind a computer. Right. So as a little bit harder. You kinda have to go through this whole thing where you're meeting people who you don't know if you're gonna have common interests in or not so don't give up keep trying to do. Of course. It's nothing personal just I would just meet up with individuals. See who you meet and just play it by year. You'll know it's right when it's right. So to summarize. Don't focus on nature's nudist dating sites. They're probably almost every single case a scam. And don't have anybody for you to follow up with remember that one in ten Kennedy a little bit more actually are probably interested in nature them. Now, don't bring it forward. Don't make it. Your main profile. Don't put a nude picture of yourself as your profile, but included in who you are what interests you, and that will be a way of weeding people out, certainly it would be a deal breaker for me if I was dating now because it's such a big part of my life. And so that would be a key thing. Just like would you wanna get married or not? And you wanna have children out some of these are very big decisions. And if you're looking for a long term relationship, those are key factors to consider. So you may have to talk to a whole bunch of women, but as you heard from Christine, so did she talked to whole bunch of men to find one? That's she was interested in dating and. In general, it treat people with respect. I'm sure for good relationships that goes for every gender, you know, SIS heterosexual versus trans versus homosexual. It's. Everybody likes to be treated with respect. And no matter what your interests are what you wanna do. And so as you communicate with people, if you show them respect, you show them, you treatment, I'm human beings. And you talk about the passion and the benefits of nature and what it's all about there. The odds are you'll find somebody who is not a nature's who will come with you. And that you can be a partner with in your life and what I'll do for some. There's some folks out there that have trouble relating to other people, and I'm going to refer you to an episode of the nature living show from June two thousand ten which is tidal. How not to be creepy. It was episode twenty along time ago, and it has a good summary of how to get along with people. And while that may seem obvious to you. It may not be somebody, you know. And you might know people who are socially awkward. Word does also a web page on the barracks website, which summarizes as well. Call how to make friends in nature, and I will put links to both of those in the show notes on the show website. So that's all for this episode of nature living show.

So if you love your POC with a touch cabinets and a ton of Lavers than your in the right place. I hope you enjoy this little snack. Hey, girl. Hey, welcome back to another episode of taste of Taylor. It's my weekly podcast where I talked to influencers celebrities taste makers and today, I actually have a fellow podcast or with me Ellie Schnitt, host of the podcast Schnitt. Talk fen fucking tastic name girl. Welcome to the show. Thank you. So happy to be here. Hey, girl. Okay. So you are with barstool sports. Yes. I am. But you are a girl. I am a girl. So I am so fascinated with barstool, I think my fascination with my fascination with barstool started like so I was working at serious, right? And I guess I interviewed KFC. Yeah. Kevin. Yeah. Yeah. And my little brother like it's so funny because I've been in radio podcasting, whatever audio for like over a decade, right? I worked with Cosmo vaccines like the number one selling women's magazine in the world of Cosmo. And my little brother like could not have been less interested in court, and then I had KFC and he was like, oh, my I and I'm like, where's with this partial sports, boys? And then he also get excited when I was on Jared freeze podcast. And he was like you're on the TRE J train. I'm like, why are you interested? So anyway, so barstool sports just breakdown for everybody. What barstool is for those who maybe don't know. Gosh, I don't know. I okay. Can you give me? Let's let's go to the Wikipedia pace here. I'm like trying to think of all that we do all that. We are. And I'm like, okay five words to describe barstool sports. We're like, it's a media company. It's not really sports media. There's a lot of sports, but it's just like content for people who want to be entertained like if you like almost anything there's something for you on. So it started off though, I guess what? Pretty heavy, bro sport talk. Yeah. I would say this. And then it kind of just like branch down to so much more. But when you think of Barsha, will you think men? Oh, absolutely. Don't think adorable. You know, launch twenty two year old women. Well, you know, it's funny because before I knew anything about barstool, I knew the two things I think people my age and people in general kind of no it's like the Saturdays for the boys. And then these smoke shows is the like the girls that Smith pictures themselves, right and. Was like, you know, is that much smoke show comes from? Yeah. Shut up. So I was married. I'm divorced, and my my former brother-in-law was like the king of smoke show. Like he was shoes a smoke show. Dull again hoax. I'm sure to my came from barstool he acts like he invented it. So he must have been barstool fan. Yeah. Probably. But. Yeah. So and I was like, yeah. I get that guy's really like this. I don't know if this is something that's for me. But then you know, after I was interviewing and looking at it. I was like away. I kind of really like what they're doing. 'cause you know chicks in the office is so good and getting so like off track right now. I know no such thing. Don't worry in the conversation. But yeah, I think when you don't know anything about barstool, it's so easy to look at the like it just like, bro. Yes. And it's like in. So you have being a woman working they're having your own podcast with them. Tell us from an insider perspective like the way women are treated and interact with the brand. At barstool. I mean, I haven't ever really worked anywhere else. But from what I've heard from my other co workers, FEMA coworkers, I Casey Smith before I signed my contract with barstool. I was obviously had questions. I was really young didn't know anything about the company, and I asked her this exact question. It was like what is it really like to be a woman in a company worth majority men bright, and she has worked at big networks. She's worked a lot of different places shoes. Like, this is the least sexist workplace I've ever been in unbelievable. And they they really just it's like having a bunch of big brothers. Like, these are guys that are just they're going to have your back people look at them. And they're like, oh barstool guys if they're like broS and their whatever. And it's like these are nerdy bloggers you guys. These are not harmful guys like they're very kindly treat, everyone with respect. And like, I I really like everyone I work with. That's awesome. So barstool at this just totally came to my mind with responsible for referring to Davidson as having a whole is which I think is the fucking funniest thing. The entire I. Really do. I mean is it not nice? Yeah. Yeah. Whatever whatever. And also Pete Davidson, I feel like he is like he is he is door -able like so sure he's not like a truly ugly person. We can make fun of the way he looks because these actually adorable, but that whole butthole izing who came up with that. That's chaps. I think. The first plug about that. So fucking funny. So funny, and the fact that like at Agron days like tweeting about butthole is via medical condition. And then you see the doctor who came out with like, it's not a medical. Doctor literally said butthole is is not like like, it's became Clark on relief. Bottle is partial it will forever. Be responsible for butthole is and for that. I am forever forever. Alexey guys. Sometimes I'm like guys, but allies. I mean when you really think about it. I mean, it's not a sexist company because they're so busy making fun of guys. But that's the beauty of it. You know, I'm about equality, but I'm not about a call like everybody like treat each other. Well, about everybody equally treat each other shady, right? So it's so funny. Like, I want to be sexist towards men barstool, we for sure it we want objectify. We had a mousetrap on the office yesterday for like no reason shut the fuck that we had a Santa Claus. They had this whole thing. Because one of our one of our bloggers Kate who was like the funniest person in the entire world. Yes. She was like she has a smoke. Bro of the day smoke. Bro of daisy. This is this is equality. It is if it's a smoke show, then there's got to be the gang so smoke, bro. And she had his male stripper. Come. And she's like, yeah. I'm gonna have Santa come in. But then it's going to be a stripper, and we were all so like washing. This guy's doing the guys. We're kind of watching from a distance Zeus. Well, it's funny because I feel like female strippers are like it's like sexy. It's it's very like sexual feel like if a group was like vertigo see meals strippers there. We're not like going because like we're getting so turned on. We're like show where either cloud all Backley exactly where I was very very uncomfortable. There's there's a video of me like watching stripper on. I'm sitting there. I'm just like. To look at you. I am not a fan of male strippers, not they're not my favorite. I think very nice, man. Who is more comfortable with male stripper girls with the guys? Definitely the guys are so funny and not in like toxic masculinity. Oh, we don't wanna look at penises kinda way. Right. Absolutely. They check if you want to take. Yeah. More just like a like, they didn't know where to look like. Supposed to be watching. It was so funny. This for us. There's no music should we? Yeah. But that's hysterical. I'm the funny thing, but barstool is like you said it's very like like equality of like who we make fun of like you're kinda supposed to get in the reality show of parcel and get in the mud a parcel. So I got in this like fake beef with a guy that I worked with Francis. And I wrote a blog because he he gets fake mad at me for having a lot of likes and shit on Twitter. Right. And then so I wrote a blog about him making fun of this picture of him and just ridiculous things like he bones horses like crazy like chrome justify him, though. Yeah. Like, this is thing. So you know, I mean, listen, I am like like I use the word slut. Okay. Sure. And that's I'm a feminist. Okay. I like I was married to a man, I we got a divorce. I am now digging a girl like I'm fucked that I've autumn feminist for life. Okay. But I like words like bitch and slot and ho- and things of that nature. And so I get criticized sometimes it's like, well, you're not really a feminist views that slang term legitim-. I'm like, no. I think we should be able. To take it back. If we want to and I'm also feminists because I think men are slips to our that's their worst the issue. It's not that we have to get rid of the word slot. It's that we have to call men slum. We have to make it equal. We have to take the word back and say like sluts, a good thing, or it's a bad thing for everyone to me. It's a bad thing. But men and women can all be slots, you know, like like for me. It's like a girl can be slutty slutty equally judged both of their slutty nece. That's true. For me. I'm more like Ivy league, you're slutty doesn't really exist. Like fuck over you want like to you one generation gap here. Ladies and gentlemen. I try to be hip with the game. So I so I won't understand what the with the cancer saying. Yeah. These days you keep me young. You keep me hip. Gotta love you. Okay. So we're talking about your podcast. It's called Schnitt talk, and it's all about dating. And basically, you give advice it's like the blind leading the blind absolute the blind leading the blind. We against that. But I do want to focus a little more on barstool minute. Because I'm just like, so I love this idea though, I love this idea of object defying. And I really really do. And so my friend Hannah she does like a lot of stuff and social media and she's obsessed with guys who are six feet or taller, right? She won't even date. You look look at you. If you're if you're in your sixty but like every month it gets like tolerant taller like she's going to only literally and guys get really mad at her. And they're like this is so superficial. And you're so sexist, and she's like, oh like you. Don't do the same thing to me. How does it feel? How's the? Yeah. And feels shitty. But I feel like a lot of times and Pathy is what makes change for you. Okay. So I'm gonna go way deep, right? Oh for it. But so this new movies coming out with it's actually probably already up at the time. This podcast airs, it's called the. The basis of sex of them debases of sex the basis of sex with about Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, and it's starring Armie hammer sexually will. And I'll just because I date women. I still can be turned on about Armie hammer and Felicity Jones, great calf. Right. And it's all about our BG and the work that she did, you know for women she's supreme court Justice and yet, but it's about her. Of course, she was a feminist in fighting for female rights, but ultimately, she was fighting for equality, and my girlfriend works for a company called Q or the female quotient, and yes, it's all about like women women women, but it's also about like men and women working together. Like, they're very focused on then men ISM. You can't have feminism without men helping for feminism. I slew its women against men women and then working together. Like, I remember I was in candling. A lot of interviews about gender equality in Hollywood, right or in film, or whatever it was. It's it's bad here. But. Really bad in France too. So interviewing a lot of women. But a lot of them were like, yeah. What we just did it we came to Cam at this movie. And it was like an all female, set an all female cast and crew which is great. And I get why we have to swing the pendulum so far that way. But a lot of people were talking about. No, no, no, no, no. We need weaned fifty fifty by twenty twenty which means equal amount of men and women working together. And I feel that's what actually boxed do it. Yeah. In a weird way people are like Basel sexism like barstool is doing the opposite of that. But that's the thing is I think empathy is everything. So like, if a will we we as women, we know what it feels like to be objectified. We come on of the fucking womb being being objectified. Right men haven't really felt it until recently. But I feel like they're feeling it now for them. It's like, oh, well shit that doesn't feel great. So the next time there are about to objectify women. They might will man they might think twice because they now know how it feels to be objectified. So that's my point is in order to get a quality. We have to torture men and women I'm glow with that with smoke show to smoke pro like we will review smoke, bro. Oh, no. I'll never smoke show suck at the fuck up. This is how field. Okay. So you get involved with barstool. How did you? How did he come to fruition? So you're from Chicago. Yeah. And I just graduated college. Where'd you go into Illinois state amazing? Well, God college God college feels like yesterday. But it really is not yesterday for me. I feel like I haven't been in college for one hundred years because working living in New York City makes you feel like I feel like I've been here for one hundred years for three months you like New York. It's probably on me. It's growing on me. Why why why the hesitation is? It lays like because it's like scary. Or is it so busy? Or is. It like intense or is the the dating what it honestly is that like I thought that I had a really good handle on what piece melt like, and then I moved to New York City. And I was like, oh, no now, I know this is what peace Melissa's is what he actually taking the subway. It's like those the little things that I'm like, I can't drive places like a can't bright. And there's no fast food that. I like, you know, what? I mean. There's not like shitty. Fast food. Yeah. There's a talk about canteen open over on the corner. That's true. Uh-huh. You can go there. Okay. So you moved to New York, and you get this job of barstool. Well, yeah. So I graduated college, and I had been sort of so Kevin Clancy whose KFC and you interviewed him. He followed me in like the member of last year on Twitter for just I had like seven thousand followers at the time. Like, I just thought it was funny. What were you tweeting about I what I pretty much what I still tweet about dating and kind of just being twenty-something and being stupid and young and stupid. Yeah. He told me awhile back, and then we sorta started talking about like because I never thought of it as like a career. I never thought of it is something I was even that good at what did you study in college? I was an English major. I studied linguistics and. Yeah. Well, I mean, I guess really at all like, I was studying like old English. And then this is what I'm doing very necessary. I want you to exclusively tweeden Nolting. I wish that I could that'd be. A time. But yes, and we sort of started talking because he was like, I think you're doing something really cool. Like have you thought about a career? And I was like not really like I'm twenty one. Like, I don't know what I'm doing. And then so he approach you like what? Like, like slipped your DM's? Yes. It really like like like they'll school me. I'm a bit old sliding in the DMZ has like such a sexual connotation, like plenty of people are like, I know people DM's all day early, and I have no sexual. Yes. Not so that and then maybe I should say I'm sliding and like I'll say turning to your, hey. Hey, he's like, hey, sorry to slide. Like, this is like trying to make it less awkward, but it's always awkward, but yeah. So the he sort of said that. But then there's nothing serious here. I don't think I'm really going to do anything here. And then I graduated and I was super depressed, and I like cried myself to sleep for like a month job. I was like what am I gonna do with my life? Like, I had no idea isn't the end of college. The fucking I cried from the day, I left college to like just so, you know, month college is the best time. In life. And I was here. When only when he says, I mean, it is the best. And if you didn't get college, no responsibilities. Sorry, get drunk all day. What you do you play. You play adult. You don't. You're actually you're just pretending adulting with training, which is the best like nothing you can do that. Anyway, it's the best anyways. So I'm supergrass whatever I might friends were so worried about me, they let me like take their dog home with with me for like a week girl. You you were bad. I was bad. Then a week later side drop the dog off and like that day was the day that Paul like jazz who's in charge of social media slid in my down. And he was like, hey, like, I I've seen on Twitter. What's your deal me? And Dave Portnoy, really like you. And we're wondering what if you wanted a job with this kind of thing. And I was like fuck I asked Kevin. And I was like is this guy for real like, we'll be talking crazy. No. And then I ended up having a phone call with Paul and he was like, yeah. Do you wanna fly out to New York? And we'll we'll have you come in and talk to us. And I was like you scare you like, what are you guys? You really know I've told them this. I thought that it was a I thought it was being like casting couch that I totally thought it was like a young dumb girl goes to the city and gets rails on your whole your blonde. You know, you're like kinda like Nouri young rain there like a holiday flyer. Marcus. I was like, holy sure. I was going to get sex traffics. And then they walk into this interview. And they're like we're going to go in here, and it was like a room with a couch. I was like oh my God here. And. I think we're joking about. But I think it's important because I don't think men understand how scary they're scary. They made fun of me so much when I told them there's like, no, no, I was like either nothing or Gaz text me the night. I like land in the city to like, get drinks or something like all know like this is sex trafficking. They land and Kevin's like, hey, how is your plan? I was like, oh he's gonna. Me. But we're always in constant. I you're terrified at all time. It's so funny, and right, fully healed girl. Like, so I am I am really close with Maria menounos and Kevin under gore. Who's now her husband? And so they I interviewed him at serious. And I'm a Boston girl under Boston people in Boston people. We just stick together. I have noticed that in Chicago. He gonna say. Say Chicago Indian. I feel to bears they stick together. But so they took a liking to me and kind of like like swept me under their wing and the advise me on career stuff. And they're also really close to someone else that works at serious named Sam Roberts. He's a man. So it's not it's not a sex trafficking ring. But one time they were in town and Kevin said Janina, let's get together for like to just chat about your career. And I have some ideas for you boa. And so I was like worshiping me. And he was like, oh come to our hotel room yet. And I was I'm going to be murdered. I was wondering why they're being somebody to be in. No, I know she's not literally route with how I fell, and I was shitting my pan the hallway going up in the elevator. Go I was thinking of exit strategies, I had my keys in my hate is like just happened. His dick rely added all prepared what I would say if they like made a pass it. I was like ready. I was and then I walk in and Maria sitting there getting your hair and fucking make of Don. And I was like, I'm I'm an asshole. But you're not though like, it's totally. I was terrified by just you like, it's so scary. It's like, then then we're reminded like, oh like there are guys that are like nice and don't want to sleep with you. And what actually you job and respect that? It's so funny because now like these there so harmless and also so helpful and have just like literally given me career, and I'm so grateful to them, obviously. But at first I was fucking terrified, of course. Well, as any normal girl would be of course. And so then you go and you realize it's legit. And you get and then you get a podcast with them. Yeah. Pretty much. They were like we trust you. We think you do great. 'cause I reach an audience. It's very different obviously from barstools. I I'm like eighteen women eighteen to twenty four is pretty much my audience, a little younger little older two and they're mostly men like eighteen to forty or something. And so they were like, yeah. We don't really know anything about the girl stuff we trust you make make stuff just go and make stuff, and that's kind of the theme of barstool. They're like if you're making stuff you make content. You're doing the right thing. Joe mazing, just more content. So why? Did you love podcasting? Why was that? Why was that what you wanted to make? Why did you wanna make podcasting? I. Honestly, I think I kinda suck it podcasting. I think Russia pretty good. You've got a good summer quality voice. You tell good story. Thank you. I'm entertained Q. Welcome. I just am. So awkward like when I have interviews with people. I feel like I'm on a first date, and then I'm like. So like, I don't know how to interview ultimately, what podcasting is it's like like me. Yeah. It's be we hang out. And I'm so like that I'm like that. That'd make you totally. Like, I was in west hardy, I had to buy fun girl. What is Rory? Like, I I mean is it is a great is an awful, it's fine. Honestly, it's a lot of fun. It's like sort of campy girly, dumb fun. We I like a mice. Wordy was full of like not the best people. I feel Schwartz have a very bad reputation. Totally do it's like, hey, I got tortured all through middle school and high school. Now, let me go into college continued to get tortured. But really I mean, I'm no that hazing as an issue hazing as prevalent across the nation. I get that. But like less already didn't really hey is. It was more. Like, hey, do you wanna chug this wind bag, and I'd be like, yeah. I do that to myself. So I'm hazing myself. Every single right. Exactly. That's like considered hazing where like you can't call girls. Like like, the youngest pledge classes, always like babies. They're the babies, you know, babies. Yeah. But you're not allowed to say that anymore because tasting argue kidding, no. I'm serious. That's super. I was pissed. I was like, no, no. These are my babies is my little. Yeah. No, the baby's exactly. Yeah. You know, the thing is we live with society and culture, and I think in some ways. Very good. I'm I'm now a member of the LGBTQ community. I am proud of that. And I feel very I feel a lot safer because people are so much more and under and understanding and accepting. Yes. But as an entertainer as somebody I'm not a comedian. But I definitely like to do humorous irreverent chatter. I definitely sometimes feel like it goes a bit too far. You worry a lot at the time. But I also think I think being PC people get really swept up in like, oh, my I going to say the wrong thing. And it's like, well, I think if you're coming at it from an angle of like respecting everyone's humanity. Like, it's not an issue. I don't worry about being PC because I know that I'm like, I respect people. And I don't wanna make anyone comfortable know, you're not sexist. You know, you're not really even though you're not homophobic, anti semitic. So you're good. I mean, I'm Jewish. I couldn't be in his medical. Exactly. But you know, it's crazy. Sometimes it says there's people who would who could actually that. You would be. That's true. Women wore sexist, right? Yeah. So okay. So your show is called Schnitt toss and Utah. A lot of Schnitt a lot of Schnitt. Yes, talk great last name. It really is. So funny because I hated it so much growing up. Why did you hate it? It's just so like ugly. Like, I just never liked him. I didn't like my full name is different from L, E Schnitt. Like, I just hated it. I thought it was like a grandma name. I hated it. It's a great name. But yeah, the podcast is fun because it's pretty much just talk. It's it's what I do on Twitter, but expanded. Gotcha. And I think people it's funny. I have people who listen to the podcasts that don't follow me on Twitter, and some of those people honestly think I have my life soda gather like people who asked me, I so funny if you've a microphone or camera included in your job, even if it's your fucking cellphone guy like like Instagram account. Yeah. Whatever people think that you are famous and rich. I mean, they do I can tell you from working years and radio radio did not pay grade podcasting piece a little bit better. But I, you know, I it's so funny to meet people think that if you're like a of any sort of note ability. That you were just like raking it in Honey, girl, not the truth. It's like, it's I don't even have a bedroom door like I live in the flex room. What? Yeah. What do you mean apartments? Maybe you don't know. I remember back go back there. Yeah. Like, we we live in a three bedroom, but it's like a two bedroom flex so I live in the half room that doesn't have a door. So what do you do suffer? I I have to buy a door. It's like nine hundred dollars a night girl. I don't have that kind of money curtain like if I like put up a curtain on never get a door. No, you lazy. I'm like as fine. But I need privacy. I'm like, no privacy. Oh my God. That's so crazy. It's like not that I'm sleeping with anybody. Because like, I okay. So we'll always hate me. But like, let's talk about how do poise. Hey, you are adorable. How was it? You know? How hard is dating in New York City, so hard I can tell you I live. I've been there done that. I got I'm married and divorced for reason. Okay. There's is it just that. There's sorry to all the guys live in New York. But is it just that they're bad option? No. You know? What's funny? It's some of these guys are I walk around the streets in like that guy. So hot. Yes. But then I'll talk to them and be like, oh, I saw. Yeah. What is it though? Because I wonder is this a nationwide pedantic or is this a New York City specific thing because I think I think there's a lot of successful very driven driven beautiful women New York, and I think that guy's get fucking spoiled like actual models real life models live and breed and eat and like, and they and they run around the streets of New York City like they're real people here. That's fucking crazy. Yeah. These guys, I don't know. I just haven't met any guy here. I mean, I love the guys I work with obviously. I think they're wonderful. You're not taking them. But I would never take your like AOL. Gating your brother? It'd be weird. But I just I haven't met anyone that I'm like interested in like these guys are just like, maybe I'm just jaded. I'm so bored by men like question. Yes. When you were in college word, you did you like the atmosphere there or not really dating in college? I was sleeping around. Thank you for the honesty cereal's fucking. Then. I mean, I tried. I guess senior year did you? Here's a question. Because I I mean, so we are your twenty two. So we're like Jesus fucking Christ. I hate math. We're fifteen years apart. So about not quite but almost so that's crazy. That's like that's a decade and a half girl. I remember when I was when I was in college. It was like definitely sociable to sleep around or to sleep with multiple people. But like I still I was raised super Catholic ever married when they had sex. They revert got married and get scroll. Yes, amazing. I know I'm like, it's a miracle. But so I kind of grew up with a different mentality. But I feel like I was like because I'm like kind of like, I'm elder millennial. Bor I kinda was still like a the female generation that was like guilted for like being like. Whereas I feel like because of that fifteen years eight different you really group at a time where like millennial women can have slept sex like men, and it is I think it is considered totally the same. There's definitely still a stigma, and there's definitely still a little bit of a difference. It's stupid and college is pretty much about hookup. People who date in colleges. Like, wow, you boyfriend in college. It's amazing that I've looked when I was in college. It was like it was like boyfriends and girl. Yeah. Like thought of that. But that would be a lot of. I believe a lot of looking up to but a lot more boyfriend and girlfriend. He things like I had boyfriends all throughout college though. My God, Dan. And I hated them all see seriously. Kosh with. But like not everyone just the guys. But I think that it's expected, but it's funny. It's like it's expected that I'm going out and hooking up with people because hookup culture is a thing. But then do like owes you hooked up with three guys in sigma Chi. She's slut, and it's like, well, you looked up with me to like -actly you what? Now, you let down your in. Like, this is a this is a consensual sexual relationship two to Tango here. So do you think hookup culture, so culture? It's still isn't quite there is not parody fifty fifty in hookup culture. No. So tell me what it's like to date with apps. Do you hate it? Or do you love it? You know, I don't I'm always afraid to like actually go on the dates, which I've heard is what makes it better. But I mostly use these apps for like attention. I think hinge if you want to actually go on a date is a great option. But I think like I've used bumble on nights for I just like had a bottle of wine with my girlfriends and we're like swiping on guys and having conversations, but like it's not way game with real people souls and field. Seriously. It's really fucked up when you think about it because I'm literally just playing with you like yes it game. It's a card game literally. And that's it's Pokemon with like dudes like, it's right? It's fucked up. But what can you do? So you don't actually go on the dates normal was afraid to go on the dates because I'm afraid to fair. Again, we go back to totally fair. I never I never go on dates because I'm this guy. The other day was actually cute. He like asked me out in kind of cute way, we met at the bar. He like gave me his number on on a dollar Bill with like, it was just like a memorable thing that was like, and then I lost the dollar. And I was like I can never Texas guy. Oh shit. I know. And then he slid on my Dempsey's like should have given you a twenty and then you wouldn't have lost it. I love him. He has money married. I know. And then I and then and then we were texting for a little and he's like, let's definitely go out. Let's go and he asked me to go to this bar, but it was like avenue a and six Zayas so far from me. This is going to die alone. Because I'm genuinely lazy do you? Are you totally fine being single? It sounds like you really are. I've just always been single most sort of had a guy I've always had someone I was sort of bothering I guess, and I recently got out of something that was a little more serious. But like, I don't really do the like we are boyfriend girlfriend together. This is a thing that I find so fascinating because you know, as an elder millennial surround myself with young millennials. So I can suck your fucking blood and stay forever. So, but I, but I see like I just cease in my little brother who's like, my heart. He's like my baby. I love him. He's twelve years younger than me. So I I'm like, yes, he is. And he went to Harvard. Oh my God. Oh, hello. My brother, actually, he might have a girlfriend, but I know your door, but I will love you free agent. But, but he, you know, I just see such a difference in dating culture. And I wonder like is it for the betterment of women or is it for the detriment of women. I think is for the betterment of women because I. Think if I was someone I know girls who are still so like, I need a boyfriend. I can't survive without a boyfriend. That's what I grew up. And it was like we all have boyfriends, even if they were terrible. We know no girl like on your own need, a man to survive that was kind of like a subtle message that I think a lot of women in my generation were taught. Yes, slather mothers. Who had the best intentions, of course. Because they were like brought up. Exactly. But I I remember when I was at it was like go to Cornell and get a smart boy that was and I kept trying to go over there. But they were selling drugs drug dealer terrible. Like mom. They're not good over there. They're quite bad. It's bad. But I just like, I know so many of my friends who you know, married, and they settled and they're miserable. But the idea of being alone the word much worse than being than being, you know, married in a horrible relationship. I remember. So there was a woman a woman who was older than me who I knew really well when I was married, and I saw my marriage slowly, but surely mimicking her horrible marriage, and it's free it scared the shit, and I felt so I felt such pity and satisfy her, and I never wanted people to feel that way towards me. And I saw that my like she was a fucking crystal ball of my future, and it made me so sad, and she was in such a loveless marriage and Sosa's dock, and I felt like I just she's such a victim. And I was like I don't wanna be that. And she was ultimately like one of my biggest motivators to get a divorce pulled. You're stuck in scary. You know, like we were very like comfortable financially, and like I didn't have to work and like he was a good enough guy. You know, like, I was okay. Not like that's not enough. But that's not enough in life. And I was like, and I kind of I had lots of this is it moments. This is it this is the end of the happiness. It was just so bleak and so sad. But I feel like my generation accepted that because it was like, well, it's better off the it's better than being alone. But I feel like your generation is like fuck it. I'll rather be Lohman. And I think that's so empowered as I know I don't like I don't settle. I don't have boyfriends because I've never met someone that I would wanna give that much of my life too. I like the things that I like, I like, my alone time, I like going out and dancing and flirting with boys like I like it, and maybe that's an immature mindset. But right now, like, I'm twenty two I'm allowed to be be gets actually very powerful. Because I remember when I was trying to do it was like if I don't know boyfriend will. Oh, my God spinster. Oh my God. But so ridiculous pickle get married. So old New York, which freaks me out. I think it's actually phenomenal. I think the older you are the more, you know, yourself and the more chance you have last exactly we'll even for example with my girlfriend. Trust me. This is not a relationship of convenience. Okay. I never was interested in women. I fall in love with my best friend. I'm like oh fucking shit. Like, how is this happening? No, she's not rich. God. Another rich, dude what the fuck like I live in this apartment building. Because it's by Wall Street. Provide Fisher thing is I'm just so in love with her. Can you do? And that's the thing. It's like the love isn't a checklist. It's it's it's emotion. And so if so if you're not checking the boxes, then you're better off being alone. And this is so fucking gay when out to say and cheesy, but like love yourself because that's the most important relation is on the podcast. I was like at the end of the day when you die. Guess what you die by yourself? Like, you only have you. You should be your own best friend. You should be your own relationship looking out for you. I don't know. I grew up definitely thinking like I was going to go to college and the night move back home, and I'd live in Chicago for a little and meet a guy that grew up in the same hometown. As me would get married moved back to the suburbs. And that would be my life. Right. I'd maybe be like a party. And then and then when did you say, no, that's not my life. I was fighting. I was fighting it because I felt like I could do more. But I was like afraid to I didn't want to end the weird thing is one of the guys I work with KFC. He texted me because I was like ghosting. A little bit of like career subject bureau into a sexual attack me. No, look, I just didn't think I wanted to take a risk with my career. I was like I'm just going to do something safe. Got a husband and live. And she text me. And he's like, hey, I know you're not answering these texts for a reason. And just you know, like do not go and get a boring job and live a boring life. You are on the verge of something. Incredible. Wow. And it just like shuttling chill it like I was like it was just what I needed to hear like the kick in the ass I needed. And I was like now I I never thought I was going to leave the midwest. I live in New York City. I never thought I was going to do a career that wasn't safe and doing fucking podcast at barstool sports. I never would have done this. Right. And like, I just think you have to make the leap because when you do look at me, it's empowering it's break. Yeah. And I admire you for it. And I think that you know, I don't know are would you say that your an example of a lot of millennial girls your age. Would you think that you are kind of like leading? I mean, you're somewhat of a pioneer or do you think they're logged millennial girls that are like you? I think there are a lot of millennial girls who want to make the jump. But they don't know how and they're scared to and I think so what's your advice to them jump fucking, do whatever it is that you wanna do do it. I can tell you from experience fear is a phenomenal motivator. And and you would really be surprised how many times you can fall in your fucking feet. I think what I've what the president of us about myself is what a survivor I am. I think my my parents are very surprised to if they're like linked to when I worked I got five you're that's the fucking worst. And I was so upset because I was like, I'm divorced. I'm dating woman. My now, I got fired. And this was I I was so scared to call my parents, I'm a fucking in my mid thirties woman. And I'm scared, mommy and daddy because I'm like because they were so worried about me. And I and I hated that. They were it. I wanted them to not be worried, and when I call them, I said, you guys just got fucking fired. And they were like you're going to be fine. And I was like, you're not worried. I thought they were gonna flip and say like this is what we were worried about and they were. Like girl, you got a divorce your gain. Now, they're fine. Fucking anything anything. We're not worried at all. This is the best thing in the world. And it was like it was so empowering to have my parents, tell me that as like a girl who's March to the beat of her own fucking drummer, not by any of the reason than just I'm just trying to be offended intruded myself that I'm like somehow becoming this pioneer bravery and the truth is I'm just trying to survive. But I do think I encourage women to do what I do what you did. Because I think that you know, men are encouraged to take risks. Yes. And society supports that decision. And when women don't play it safe. We feel like we're gonna fuck up our entire lives, but it's the risk taking that makes your life. So like so much magical lack of veteran word. I don't know. I don't know. Well, I'm proud of you. Thank you. Yeah. It's surprising to me that I'm even able to do this. I always thought of myself as just like a little bitch, baby. Like, I can't handle shit like living in New York City has made me feel like I can do if you can live in New York City, you can live anywhere can. Literally, you can do anything literally do anything like the first time that you watch someone take a shit in front of you on the subway. Scariest New York moment you've had to date that here for how long three months three months. Oh my God. You're about see so much more game. I know, but that was the worst moment of my entire life. I'm like could you tell me the store on my way to work on the shuttle from Grand Central Times Square? You're on the what what's that that's this s s traits like a two minute train. It's nothing. What can go wrong bright? You know, you're like, I'm safe here. There's wifi. This is a good train. Yes. It's like one of the good line. It is you know, like there's like respectable people on it. Yeah. Yours it's just a shuttle back and back and forth. And I'm sitting there and all of a sudden like everyone around me is kind of like Raleigh. What am I got? What is that?

I'm her million plastic bags. No. This was like a respectable gentlemen being like. Yup. I pooped my pants. I. Going to date was like. Nothing together about as well as I do. Oh my God. Who that man? I would like to meet that man. Yeah. God I walked into work. And I was just like man pooped his pants, and it was my first that was like the worst week of my life. That was like I had just gotten home. Sorry. This isn't home. I guess at his home. I just got back you after thanksgiving had been home. I came back.

We're gonna good week and a man poops Pam what actually? Mercury was in retrograde. And that's why he pooped his paying you had the problem with the plane, my brother's car pros that week was and that was when I was in the literal shits who's really weird real shit.

Deep Sea Creature Features

"These poker's contains strong language adult themes from the outset. Hello and thanks for listening to because he watched the podcast that comes up with brand new ideas for TV shows and movies. My Name's Rory. I'm a producer. It'd be my job. Identify an under-exploited video on demand category and gather some creative people to brainstorm some ideas. Will we come up with the next big thing I mean? Yeah sure when all joining me for this brainstorming session is Youtube Becky. James No comic actor and writer Mark Davidson. Hello Hi and actor and writer George. Maguire lack biscuits great is of course deep sea creature features which is a real category on Net flex and the thing that we watched was jaw city. They did it in would ever of a little known movie jaws absolutely terrifying still still. I could not believe I watched that as a child. I was about nine hundred. I saw it and I'm still traumatized by it. And it still dramatizes me some thirty or anyone. Who doesn't know I'm sure someone out. There must not know jaws. And it's a nineteen seventy five American thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg Net. Flix describes it as when an insatiable great white shark terrorizes amity island a police chief an oceanographer and grizzled shot counter. Seek to the story the beast. And it's based on a novel by Peter Benchley from Nineteen Seventy Four. The same name. Do you not found that authors actually in the film. I was really blown away but I don't know just coming out with a stage. He's a he's a journalist One of the during one of the scenes contain which he is one of those journalists. And I think I'm right in saying that. He was so mortified by what it did to the reputation of sharks that he then devoted a large chunk of the rest of his life to preserving sharks and posting their image in making them lovable than he presented the mass to charge after that and hate to the beach. I couldn't even get into a swimming pool after literally. Walk into the department. Stunned show coats for me. It's one of my favorite films. And for me. Robot shows performance is one of the performances. Full-time Schwartz play robot. Schwartz is the Bikini clad first victim. Amazing Robert Shore on the other hand plays Quinn a shot catcher and when he was eaten Quinn. When he's eaten there will be spoilers. I sort of thing. That's the one thing that's wrong with the film. If I could rewrite I would have him survive and go off into the sunset. The result shark onto the survives yet again and in the book. Richard Dreyfuss character dies. Yeah he doesn't come back from the from the cage it's not explicitly it is but there's just bubbles that slowly fade and then not seen anymore and then Richard Roy. Schneider goes back to shore so presumably. So you've read the because yeah all. Someone told me that some big words in that opposite. Superfan yeah I think so. It's such a conic film. The so many brilliant moments and brilliant performances all the performances great but a robot shore really captured my nation. I'm trying to be the British Robert Shaw now. Failing I'm sitting. I'm hoping that they do a reboot. Remake an available to be Quinn. I'm watching the graphics if it was remade terrifying anyway but Michael savage comforting. They like the shark was obviously last. Every time I thank God it's not rare in England though. Would it be like what would it be? Just like a a stranded whale in the temples. Some kind of be extra tuna terror stop. So obviously. That's how amazing. Jesus now you guys all you have to do is topic. I'm sure you've all been thinking long and hard about ideas that you would introduce into this category on that flakes of course also take away with an idea. I why not becky so you never right? So I'm going to need you to have an open. Mind go into the minds and hearts yes. Even though it's the best idea I've ever come up with of course Right so the title is love at first bite. Oh I was so pleased fantastic right so there's a fish living life just enjoying itself now and then we seem gone about. Oh sorry we see her going about her life enjoying when suddenly there's a fishing boat dea chaos So all of friends terrified. But she's intrigued so she swims up to the boat and they're through the war as she sees the face of a fisherman looking straight back at her and they fall in love. Oh I know so. The story goes that they just just follows these two fallen in love the hard times because she is in fact a fish. Yeah that's how far as I've got. How large fishes she. Oh like little tiny little nemo kind of fish which makes even more we it is is there any necking is a lot of. Yeah there's a lot of scenes you wouldn't WanNa Watch in front of your parents own with little fish gills brave to take the I would say quite wrote format of like a mermaid falling in love with a sailor. I just removing the this female human half offish. Selfish lower-half is a fish in the upper half is also what is Allen can fish speed. Yes okay yes. Thank God Much who do we think could pull sexy? Female Fish Invoice discounting seem on this actor O. Obviously she sees a shoe in the object. Melanoma from on the scarlet. He's he's the fisherman. Oh I watched that was. The fisherman's vibe is on his own in the boat. Now that's quite a few people on board so it needs to be quite secretive. Is this a real hunky? Fishermen is like a lady's movie because they want to see funky fishermen pretend they're fish one hundred ten percent. I'm glad you said that the woods are my mouth. We bit more about who he is like. He's also with these other. So He's Normal. Fishermen yes is. He married just recently divorced season. Yeah looking. He's a bit lonely or awful sad. Yeah yeah so I want to say some names that you and I want you to like. Give me a general temperature on how you feel. This person could pull off being in love with fish so we got Jamie Dornan. That's I believe Mr Grey Kit. Right so God. Yeah you could pull off. He could pull off our going Idris. Elba we not need your salver as Romantic Fishman and he's more into humans. Yeah there's a slight a slight spanner in the works to the Google. Search spending Hollywood. We've got David Beckham. I would draw people in Shirley back saying David Beckham interested by the. I think that is a stunt casting choice that will get people in the door about yes doing. He's not that good doing speaking. I'm not sure ten be range of all. Although if he doesn't say anything. The whole movie that saves a lot in script writing costs strong silent type speaking speaking role. Plus we that way. He doesn't need to the fish. Just still a contact we go. What would the press junket beloit focus and whilst I read this man no not so thanks? He finished well. David Beckham what's main fish's name? I'm thinking like scarlet like you said Nice. Oh Shit Saves Sculpture Hanson. Actually having to lender law suits every save by doing that they do. They have fishy babies and they they keep kids row without grim. There's a lot of eggs involved in fishery production. Maybe I'm barking up the wrong. I think that's that's for the sequel. Maybe definitely Beckham raising a thousand kids. All just following the bolt gods what they could have some babies and then they're Beckham kids could voice them off really good so we can go wild dice on his film. Victoria Beckham. I was GONNA ask Trine Kosta yet already out there. Yes but just in case. She says I'll send our center a bonus. Insurer hello again just interrupting for a second to let you know that you can follow us on instagram twitter and facebook by searching for you. Watch Paul where you'll find additional content podcast news and exciting updates on my quest for the next big thing. That's you watched pod on instagram twitter and facebook next up mark. What have you so I'll run you by a couple of ideas that I dismissed. Just in case he in the first prequel to jewel's jewel's truly about the love the main shark has for another lady shark and then she's killed by humans which leads to jaws kind of explains to jaws franchise. What the musical wicked is. The wisdom was. Nice if you've seen that But I thought it was too hard to tell a love story underwater so no one would ever try and sort of fish based love story so the next Radio. App WAS KILLING. Nemo with a live action film where the hero of Finding Nemo has gone rogue and he. He's responsible for all the plastic in the ocean. He's he's dragging as much plastic into the ocean as he can so sting bee stings. Well out for this where you run it by. He has to hunting down and terminate him with extreme prejudice. It's kind of a watery apocalypse. Now they're all good. See the see. What made the car well none of that shit so I dismissed that and this is sort of two ideas into one but this is the one. I'm going for work entitled deep-space diving so it's a shark terrorising an underwater colony but the twist is. They're not underwater there. She in deep space but there were wearing diving. Garin wandering bowers evenings and what inspired that was remembering the first time I saw blue planet with David attenborough. Fifteen years ago the experts that were in the deep sea diving bell. We're going so low under the ocean. They were looking at stuff that looks like spaceships and having a clue what they were looking at even though they were experts because the stuff down there is so weird so wanted something that combined the depths of space the depths of the ocean but then that sort of morphed into star wars. Yeah Dodge OHS. Yeah like a shop terrorizing. It's basically the story but set in space of Star Wars or Joel stores. Okay the story of Jaws where there's this massive thing terrorizing planet Amityville and Saifi Remake of Nice and. I've Cast Felicity Jones as the Roy Schneider character. Toby Jones Richard Dreyfuss. Because I mean I think they're married and there's a clause in her contract. She has to get involved and Robert Shaw of of gun. Brian Blessed. Oh because for me. The robot shore performance as Quinn is so nuanced and subtle and multi-layered that. I think it'd be fun to just obliterate rule and have some shouting. Don't want to do the same thing twice. I think Brian Blessed would reinterpret a very strong way. I I'm not sure I think. He's good at shouting. I've got a question I think either. You might be advanced. Maar anyone else. Everyone is in diving suit. Spacey's what is is the shock in the diving. How is the shark million about up in space since the shark is some kind of ship that smaller Vehicles WanNa goodness gracious me? Yeah but it's kind of warship thing that just like sharks are like the ultimate killing machine in evolutionary terms. It's the same with the space. Technology is just a thing that destroys whatever we got. We got the TAGLINE RIGHT THERE. The ultimate killing machine. Yeah but literally time that bits on the end of the tagline bracket maybe the shark's mouth is open and the open mouth is like is glass and the people inside controlling the shots. Look out through our work and the and from the eyes of a shock. The that's where they expel the mini space. Yeah and the mini spaceships ally like fracture patterns of just smaller destructive spaceships. And they've got smaller ones inside there. It's a kind of coming on the whole universe. Love it. So so what's the story going to be so it starts? It starts initially as a remake of jobs is going to go remake all the way through. And you're going to have a little twist for returning views. All I know where this is going. You're going to see them a little curveball. It needs it. Doesn't I think that'd be good if we could come up with one. What are we reckon with? There's a bit of a twist in that. You think they're underwater in the not. What does that seem player like? Can you run through picture? Is this the first thing that the movie? Yes from black looking at. There's a beautiful underwater colony where people are going about their business. Doing stuff. Doing business banking should go find some loose change for the parking meter submarine and then one on the road on underwater in space films. Us less. So what are you talking about? Tends to Cameron. We're in space pool and not water must have like a little aquarium for something. Yeah Shit or on the planet are they on another planet or that she floating around there in deep space but I think I think the there were buildings that they can get into there are solid structures can gain by this time in space. They have learnt how to like anchor building so it doesn't float. Yeah well like spaceship. Just the one stupid guy that we need to be stupid to tell. The audience is under water. He's forgotten where he lived. Dementia Yali on. And then that's never referred to get the expedition the people in space listening right. Now they're onto can imagine happening. So how does it end? Obviously in jaws again spoilers for the nineteen seventy five movie jaws. They put a propane tank or something. His mouth shoot. Explode the shot yeah. I think Brian Blessed Takes Felicity and Toby Jones out into even deeper space to lure it out and they end up. Brian blessed should should get eaten. Unlike Robert Schuman right the wrongs and Toby Jones two minds as to whether to let him survive. 'cause I if you piss me off. Felicity Jones is the ultimate hero and destroy. Sharman paddles back to deep space without sharp. I love that so humans in space. Actually go around and canoes. That's perfect so like a one person. Spaceship as canoe because that will really add a twist of being in space film. Love Filming Very Close Up. You can just see. Oh Shit. We're Spain thanks. Can you think it's just a plain remake of Jones July spice and then cut to an image of monks? Faith thing about it just burns liking grab needs to and you've got to pay. I was Georgia was so my idea actually comes from a friend. Who's a sensible adult human? He has a child Who's also sensible human and collects top trumps cards. And I said I was staying in on Saturday night watching jaws and she thought I was joking pitcher one of her sons cards and it was a giant squid found in the Natural History Museum and I thought what better inspiration for this. So the main protagonist of this dystopia in future film cooled seapower. Seapower seapower is a giant squid Now this is kind of a cross between the shape of water and Free. Willy's okay so in future and twenty one hundred relief so we're using advertising giant ocean creatures for power so in this world they using like big squid and big fish to generate power in the world and they're keeping them in the Thames but in this film that's Elo character could moss who's eleven And Mom is one of the scientists behind this new way of creating energy but makes moss really sad like the boy am freely so she goes to the Thames and that hangs out with Archie. The squid feed him through the tentacles and they have chats and everyone thinks archie. Is this really dangerous animal. But Moss's like no I see. Archie has a heart and and there's this keeper of the of the. Thames pond could sit and who looks after Archie? And he's like the old world and he sees moss having this relationship with the squid and wants to help her set the squid free and then the electricity company gets wind of it kills said but then announces to the news. That it's archie cover of it's a cover up exactly go. I know the scale you go to preserve the giant underwater power saving status quo exactly of Oscar F X But then Moss starts worldwide revolution and to try and settle the creatures from the rivers free and eventually wins and so the Thames Barrier Opens. An Archie goes out into the sea. Thirty knows the little boy with them over little girl well may focus know maybe maybe he does maybe out she does but in but I think that maybe she waves him off On the scene into the the Free Weld maybe he let bill avas overhead like him free Willie with his tentacles bolts over over the Thames barrier. You love to love to say exactly so this is a movie. This is moving great so the the world yes just to be clear on what time it's it's a world where to stop him. We're running out of power exactly and they're generating power with these deep sea creatures. Exactly how were these creatures generates? Is that like a becomes two wheel thing. I only did science. Ucsc I call go into technical details. Boffins figure that out to say exactly. I can't even tell you how nonstop synthesized say. I'm not going to get that far but I imagine like little things attached to the creatures that. Oh yeah okay. You're some of the scientists mark history as a whole is basically sides. Yeah just plug some stuff in and things happen when you plug into just the the the bits bits into the things and discounted to run along this keep shouting out the make power here dead long so if you want to run. They've got like a long yeah. How is moss meeting up with the squid like on having to southbank hanging overhead? Hunkered Bread Jive. Does she have really dump Green Hair? Yes thank God for that make sense for name is a quote. I was trying to think. What would people in the future be called? Yeah this is the stooping future. They're like nothing nothing in this world. I mean Moss legal swing. And so. What's the scene like when Moss Meets Archie Is it like if a person gets the glass all? Yeah what do you guys think I would think? Maybe it's like a little a little stroke of tentacle meet a screen. What would you? How would you introduce say? Oh well you know one hundred shake. Would you go stone? I reckon you know I'm thinking London. I see life next to it. Maybe they could be like right. We're releasing them all. We need them for energy. Just see this massive seen of them all just flopping out into the phone. That's the great opening sequence. Got The news footage setting up the world of agencies in door on the southbound next to the aquarium is the London dungeon so maybe accidentally someone. Who's playing Jack? The ripper adversary plopped into the Thames. Stuck on some treadmills and that way you know. Get off your hope we free. The animals still need the power very much need the power of us. Just Icing Jackson Staying Dungeon Sharks Adventures. Be Great activists only been in the big ones? Where is the rule you know tomorrow that she turned down to be a Christmas Elf in a shop at? Lowe's not maybe I'm hearing what. What was their reasons for turning you down and not healthy enough. Eight Morrell top piece of paper. And it's like you see your school here exactly and I even went with like a nod to the character which is really humiliating land. Green and red eye rebel so entries for the category on that flex deep sea creature feature much idea which is either called deep space diving. All Star jewels depending on where we want to go with. What do you think it's it's does it feature a deep sea creature twist twist. Yeah the important thing is that elevate while it may technically not fit in the category for for ninety eight point five percent of the time it does then it very briefly doesn't and then it's market share so that could be underwater. Knows it would be good you in scuba suit and I can see. I can see mark and a chair being whole subcategory on Netflix yourself. Smoke well if your your your scuba underwater at the end it can then be revealed that actually you also in space just to double dip on the tourists. Yeah and you're in case someone missed it. Yeah and then. If there's still only all come birth look. I made this really clear space. I thought it was clear. Just go through it one more time getting my own before we before we had see hasely. Becky's idea love at first bite deep sea creature features. How do we think this fits into the category? Pathak's all right. Yeah and I think the the stunt casting Victoria and David Beckham makes it a box office. Surefire HIT PHENOMENON. The branding lamarche. It's the the Mr Mrs Smith. But it's Mr Mrs Fish so good. But that won't be the tagline unless it is but if it was reports of it but at the end of my house still explaining my film. I know this is a different film. I've got a good authoritarian. Didn't get it could on and finally Georges Seapower so I have lost. Jobs ideas seapower. How does that fit into category deep sea creature definitely? Yeah absolutely and it's an unusual choice of creature to carry a film which is nice. Well what is the whole variety of deep sea creatures? Because it's yeah they've dredged the whole lot right here includes all over. Fishing could ask for its diversity from Marineland beautiful As well Shrek checked in that the reasons and no one can quite okay so wherever it's going what do we think should be the pitch has got to me. Start Comey's what was it called as well. There's two names I it was. It was either deep space diving. Which which I think is way the twist it does sort of star. Wars does it. Yeah a written matching or something. Y'All the study reveals the space. There's another bit the postal. If you put the Magic Inc over there it's just me and my perfect okay. Great so chuck. Thank you so well done. Mark Start Yours or jaws but this time in space and very small font just yours is the way I will I will. I will start getting the pieces together to make this a reality feeling a great feeling as well. Thanks for joining us. This is where we are not. We actually aren't spaces in space taking away. What am I wearing this episode of because she watched featured Georgia McGuire Becky James Mark Davidson and me rory banks? It was produced by Joe Grace and Martin Chicken in a world where sharks exist set a bloody shark Nari. Canoes is indicative of the final product. It's good though the The thing that was in my head did an emphasis magazine where he was just screaming but he words team did. I just say.

My guy twenty nine thousand nine shaping up to be a real barn burner. I don't think that this January has been all that week. Okay. Well, be wise Salva get into it. Then why knowing well, then let's get right to it. The first mover going to talk about is the upside directed by Neil burger, starring Kevin Hart. Bryan, Cranston, end, Nicole Kidman based on the French box office spach the in touchable 's not the untouchables different movie. About a comedic relationship between an embittered wealthy quadraplegic and the unemployed criminal who is hired to help him ghetto Parayno. You know, you haven't had a chance to see. Oh, you should because it did. Well at the box office, great squashing it. So when I do my box office predictions. I look at the I look at the fandango pre sales, and I'm busy watching. And I think no one's talking about this movie. It's gonna bomb. It's going to go away. And then they look at those numbers. And I mean, it was really really high so super good opening weekend. And then this weekend. Same exact thing. It's holding strong every single day. I'll the week in the middle of the week bleeding into a holiday weekend where we don't see big drops. And an ace cinema score would be is going to crush it all over again, this is cinema score. This is his first number one out of a lot of very good film. They've been releasing and what if the upside is this year's my big fat Greek wedding, like a movie that just held in theaters forever. Because it was just so palatable and charming, right? It was now now when did you see the film curious the upside I saw before all the hubbub with Kevin Hart, the Oscars? I saw it when they did press at the end of twenty eighteen okay. Very different viewing of the movie at that time. And let's just just say it for the record not as good as the touchable 's you're not into reading subtitles than this is for you. So you saw at the end of eighteen I saw for the second time probably around that same time because they did the Trump at so early. It was like two months before the movie opened. But here's the thing. I saw the move for the first time at the Toronto film festival in two thousand seven. That's right. It got shelved because it was a saying SAIC, right right warned Weinstein company film. The movie premiered at the at the ROY Thompson hall of a sitting there right in the message. But I was sitting so high up in one of those mezzanines said if I stood up to fast, I would hit my head on the ceiling on the ceiling of that tops in all you've arrived like great. I'm looking at the movie, I'm watching it like like. Looking over the balcony, it was it went through literally no pun intended here through the roof because it was such a feel-good crowd-pleaser. And I was immediately struck by how that the chemistry between Bryan, Cranston. And Kevin Hart was so good. I was immediately struck by how Kevin Hart who who's movies. I enjoy for what they are. But you know, he'd sort of makes plays the same role over and over again. But not with this movie. I felt like this film. He showed some range some depth show some seriousness. Yeah. And he played well, you know, they they complimented each other, Cranston and heart, and I thought it was a very very good movie. And then a month later Weinstein, kicked off the whole metoo movement, and you know, times up movement and basically everybody in Hollywood. You know, that's a whole other story slightly abandoned. This the slate of films that they had coming out right as a slap on the shelf. And when I watched it I was struck by all those things too. And I was most impressed by Kevin Hart because he is so funny, and I just love him so much, but his comedies of really pigeonholed him. And so like, the great comedic actors that have come before him like we'll Farrell for instance, like they gotta figure out a new bit. And so we'll fair got more into producing. And he did the. The. Stranger that Messiri is more serious Thomson that game. Everybody knows what it is. And so this is like his turn in that role. Right. And so I liked it. And I thought it was so pleasant and I walked out, and it was one of those reactions whereas like the movie. Yeah, that was good. It was good. I was entertained by. Despite the bad lock of of getting caught up in the windstorm of of the Weinstein company. Thank you. S T X picks it up, and then there's the whole backlash against Kevin Hart host the Oscars. Tweets I felt like man this movie can't get a break. And if you just take the movie on its merits, don't judge anything don't chose to fact that it was Weinstein company. Don't shut the hearts missteps to finally apologizing. Back handedly for his older tweets and everything in question, Mark. But it's it's just the judge didn't film on its own. It is a very good film was very entertaining. And I'd say, Nicole Kidman. It was interesting last weekend at the arc light in Hollywood. It was a Nicole Kidman film festival. She loves you. You had Nicole hit our wait. Wait, wait. So not only does she sent flowers. Butts thoughts at the critics choice awards which we were all at the three of us. I was making a beeline to the quiet place table to to stay high to the producers, Andrew form and bradfo. Lower. And I hear someone Scott Scott, and I turned, and it's the coal Kidman at she goes like this. And and I you know, Chiba was she gets up. She gets me hawk. She goes you want the best moderator. Did you get the flowers, and I'm like, oh, I got the flowers. I cannot. I mean like she did not have to do that. No, so nice. And that's the thing is that I really thought the first time I ever interviewed her I had a picture of who she would be in my head. I mean to be honest, I thought she would be like a total ice Queen and like unrelatable, and then you start talking to her about horror movies and how much she loves them. And you start talking to her about her deep love of Dirk chocolate, and how she thinks it's weird that her husband drinks, kale smoothies, and she knows so much about films that it's so fun. Yeah. To talk to her, and she's funny and warm, and it's very confusing for someone that had a preconceived notion. But it's one of the times I've been the most wrong about someone that makes your story makes me love her even more. But PS she was wasted. In this film. Way. All no, no. She wants. All about. I mean, it's like hurts to come out in twelve months. So, but great that's the thing is that she is she's doing different things we look at the four films that were playing at the Arclight yet. The upside they were they were doing award screenings for boy you race. But she was terrific in and then aquaman, which she was now over a billion dollars and then one of our best performances bar. None in destroyer. And I'm like, wow. It's like the Nicole Kidman film festival here at the arc light here. But, but no, I agree with you in terms of like, you know, I've always sort of got her junkets for like four minutes over the years. So to talk with her for thirty and let down our guard, and you know, just in front of eight hundred people at the sold out screening at the arc light. That was really awesome. But I've really liked the upside I give it a b plus how about you. I actually that's exactly the rating that I had in my head because it was we were very pleased. And we as me and my husband that stumbled on the that stumbled on the touchable. As an award season screener Yahoo yet that's a better movie. But this one be happy plus Farsala Perry if you were gonna if you would have seen it. Get down to it. I'll let you know. But we're off to Sundance soon we are not going to see him January January releases that are going to get lost in the mix. All bummed. I can't see the kid who would be king. Also. You know, there's something about January movies. You know, sometimes you get a movie that's actually really good February February's also a temporary. Like deadpool was really good teams. Yeah. But yeah, that's exciting. What's what he's not going to capi death day to you. I'm not going to get it. It's. Happy. Happy death day was a sequel to the it's a really good blunt house horror movie like horror groundhog day, super really fun. Oh, okay. Good choice. Good choice. All right. All right. All right. The movies with you though. I'll see that we see the upside together off-camera escape. Escape from that room. But anyway, that is Africa. We so let's move along to the big movie opening this weekend, and it is a holiday weekend. So I can't wait to hear your boxoffice prediction on that one. This movie is glass written and directed by end night Shamlan starring Samuel Jackson. Bruce Willis chains McEvoy and Sarah Paulson almost twenty years in the making. If you think about it. It's the ultimate showdown between superhero, David Dunn's super villain. Kevin Wendell chrome and well the villain misery year hero allies your price. Perry. What did you think of glass? Well, I can tell what you might think. I was I was disappointed. I think this is a very applicable term. Just from my perspective. But I was a huge huge fan of split. Of course. I liked them. Right split wound up being one of my favorite movies of that year. So I was so excited to see the three of them come together. And I think it started out pretty well. I think there's a certain action scene at the beginning of the movie that was a little too. I would say dark just in terms of the visuals, not not the tone. But I actually couldn't see the action which I found frustrating. But I liked the setup in the first act and the second thing get into that hospital setting. It was just oh my God, exposition and speech yet it just like one lengthy monologue after the next biggest Sarah Paulson fan in this world won't was that a flat character and in the end. Of course, we know it's Shamlan he's going to do these really cool reveals at some point. And I like the ideas that he had I like the ideas that he tells us about in the end. But the problem is he doesn't earn though. Those and then on top of that a couple of the reveals you can go back and start to poke holes in that. And then all of a sudden the reveals and satisfying anymore. All right. Great. Yeah. One word pacing pacing just the wrong pace for this movie. And I think that in my head I had counted. I counted on it to be a real kind of whiz bang meeting of these three characters and like, wow. But I should have known. I was suspicious when so many of the promo materials featured James McEvoy because that characters incredible. And split was so good. But was good. But I was like why is glass not in the movie about glass what? And so my impression of the film is is this. I am Sarah Paulson, and I am looking at you and asking you questions in this voice. Good, Sarah Paulson, I get so much. Thank you. Love you, Sarah pulsa. Here's the thing about class. First of all like, you just said that's post to be about Samuel Jackson's illogic price glass, and he's kind of doesn't really show up until halfway through the movie. I like you may have massive disappointment. Now, here's I was trying to think about okay. Yeah. I agree with you the pacing is very slow. I'm all for a good built up because if you remember the six cents the first half of the he was a little slow. But then when you get to the mid point the I see dead people think just yeah, boom. Yeah. It turns it flips the movie over, and it turns into something different in the end that makes you go back and watch it much more closely now. I loved on breakable. The only problem with them breakable. What's that followed the six cents in a lot of people felt like it wasn't as good as the six cents, and it wasn't. But it was a completely different films and unfair comparison. It is it is. And this is also the came out in November of two thousand I think, and you know, up to that point you had blade. He had X men, you know, the resurgence of the superhero movies, which just getting started. And this was a very different kind of superhero moody, and I love the ending. I'd love the twist. So then you get to two thousand sixteen with split and James McEvoy all his twenty four performances in FM sensational. If that movie was released later in the year, he might have got nominated for it. He should have been because he was great. He was superb in Nashville now when you get to the end of split, no spoilers by you know, if you haven't seen split by. Now, you're missing out some going to say the end of that film when it's revealed that split takes place in the unbreakable universe. I went okay. Okay. That's interesting. I don't know if it was needed. I don't know how it makes me feel about wanted to go back and watch it again like it did with success or unbreakable. But okay, I felt like the twist ending with Bruce Willis at the end of split felt forced. So that's interesting felt forced I thought this is rare that you're this wrong. Go ahead k- way. Hang on hang on. I'm going to get even wrong, or until you in say that the strain of pudding split in the breakable universe was make completely obvious and clear to me while watching glass, I did not feel like split belonged in the breakable universe or vice versa. Whatever I felt like felt forced. Wow, I did not feel like these. You know, it was like a Batman a joker kind of thing where they were like archenemies or Spiderman in the green goblin, you know, or or professor Rex. Nato didn't have that sort of like getting Yang. You know, we need each other. Ma made each other kind of thing. And do you have as many opinions about this as I do I go ahead. Hurry, couldn't disagree more on bio own now put it out there that is one of the things I was most impressed about in terms of how they introduced the back that split was part of this unbreakable world is I still think split stood on its own totally fine. Great movie, you could watch without seeing unbreakable. But I thought that that end touch made so much sense. And I think it makes more sense after you last even though the reveals at the end of glass didn't really work for me. I still think that it makes it makes even more sense than all three of these individuals would be playing on the same field. And that's where I think glass and its commentary on the superhero comic book, storytelling format. That's where I think it adds most the most to that conversation on top of that that the. Movie was too on the nose. But that like, oh, and here's the part where this happens at. Here's the part where that happens. I mean hearing Sarah Paulson and Samuel Jackson state stuff. Like that made me go, you know, what this was like two thousand two or two thousand four I think the movie would have been more right right at the right time. But after eighteen or twenty straight years of solid superhero movies that have evolved from blade to you know. Everything that happened spider man spider verse. So, but I felt like this was a way too late. If should've come out fifteen years ago. Okay, m night. Gets tripped up on his own post modern ideas in this movie, really really badly. I think in this long section that I was I literally for most of this movie sat on the edge of my seat. And I went I'm waiting for something. I don't know what it is. What am I waiting for? Why won't they just get to the point? Because none of it made a lot of sense to me in this film. But I'm with Perry because when split ended I was sitting in a theater with two other women from the Hollywood Foreign Press that spoke Italian as their primary language, and I I went I was so excited, and I could hear the women in the back going. Why don't you yelling about? And so I was so pumped for the Shamlan averse, and I think that this movie ends up having great ideas, and I'm like ios more movies. But in this film, it showed that blunt house only had a certain amount of budget. And so they were like console in swell. Well forever. So excellent were just going to set it mostly in this insane asylum where that where we can keep the cost way down. And it's like, listen, this is the first movie out of so many the we're Sam Jackson is the title character as an original. Because I mean, he was shaft, but that's not his original character. This is his first one. And that's where I say like buy your tickets now just for that reason alone. It's like support that idea. So that way, we can see more of this and more of Sam for God's sake that could have worked though, I don't have any problem with this whole idea of just confining it to the hospital because split exactly look at split. And then go go rewatch split. I've said this somewhere out there before, but one of the most impressive elements about split is how there isn't a single wasted moment of screen time where every single scene whether it is a, you know, edge of your seat action scene where there's some sort of like threat on the girls. Lives or even if they're just having a one on one conversation every single moment in that movie. The lines will mean something in the whole thing has you riveted that could have happened here. It's just in glass, it almost feels like the same exact conversation replaying over and over and over and you're right here. What you're saying? And I understand I'm in the minority on split Napa logging unbreakable universe. But I still feel like it was forced it still it didn't it didn't. You know? I went back, and I watched split again because I only saw one time two years ago. And I still I love the film and chase McEvoy superb twenty four versions of even better in this movie. How did that? But the end of the movie. Oh, okay. I get it. Okay. I guess it doesn't it felt forced. But okay. That's what he wants to do. Open your heart to m night. Shyamalan averse. I did it is grabbed it makes me so happy to because like you getting super excited with two people that had no clue sitting beside you you get to enjoy it as. An umbrella Qabail fan, but also hopefully that gets them to go see a movie that they're not familiar with. And I feel like that's how you continue franchises the thing that he is doing that's great in this movie is he's expanding on little parts of this universe that are in corners that nobody's thinking about. And that's what makes for good sequels. This was not a good sequel to say it. But it I see what I see what he's doing. I appreciate what he's doing there. So many facets to this story, and he's really digging out as many as he can. And I appreciate that. 'cause it's like by the time that the ending to this movie rolls around. You're like, oh, dude. I see how this could easily be three or four movies that aren't even about the same characters. But they're bringing more people in like, I think that he's doing this intelligently. I just wish that this movie had been paste differently because it just didn't work it felt slow and I was like my action. Seeing James McEvoy. And so much of him is great. But this isn't working for me. Right. The movie did not work for me started slow it ended the ending was a disappointment. And I know you feel feel your you think it does belong together. I still feel like it doesn't what's your letter grade. Parents my letter grade is a CD. And if you guys want to hear more about the issues with the ending, we did a really length the spoiler view. I did it with Cobb stir and Christian, and we really dug into it. And I brought up a lot of the questions that I had in to be fair. I know that Shamlan is the kind of guy who likes to put a whole ton of details in his movies. And you know, you watch a movie once and maybe there are things that you could have missed but coming out of my very first viewing. I had a lot of questions that poked holes in some of my favorite reveals towards the end of it, which deflates the excitement of those additions to this series a bit bright. What's your letter? I I'm really hovering at C, plus B, minus. And I'm favoring I'm being I'm favoring it because I really just wanted this to be so good. But I guess I have to give it a c. Plus, I'm giving us stand. This breaks, my heart. This makes my heart to look I mean, you know, the first big bummer of the air Palmer. I look you guys it revs up. It gets good. It's just that you have to sit through so much of it. I just this brings me, no joy. This makes me his his trifecta with with them with the six cents, unbreakable and signs. And I mean, I like the visit really did like split. Look, he's he's sending all his movies and Philadelphia my hometown, go Philly. Sorry eagles. But you had it last year. Well, but Taylor joy. We haven't even talked about. She's great. She's underused. We love him. What more and more and more? Well that character bothered me too. Because I know okay. If this movie takes place three weeks after the events of the other movie, don't you think she would be just a little more traumatized? I know they had their moment at the end of split, but on top of that even going down to a silly little detail. And it's it's actually not silly. Because it speaks to who she is her wardrobe her wardrobe is drastically different. She did not get a stylist like three weeks of surviving split. It's just little things like that. But really off some of the side characters which isn't to say that she didn't deserve one after everything she had been threats to. Well. Okay. Let's not go off the rails here. All right. So moving onto on the basis of sex directed by Mimi leader starring Felicity Jones army. Amer Justin throw and Kathy Bates. Based on the true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights and the hurdles she had to overcome to become the first female US supreme court Justice. I liked this movie a lot gray, which think beyond like this movie. I loved this movie. What has happened to this movie? Why have I know that it just went wide? I think last week, and so everyone see this movie because regardless of what you what you may agree or disagree with as far as our BG's politics. Go is not what this is about. This is about a person that is working so hard to change our world. And there was an inequity back then and she worked to fix it. And I think that Felicity Jones is incredible. I thought Armie hammer was a great support to her. I thought the story was fantastic. I cried so many times in this movie thinking about how I'm here because of people like her sure, it just it gives me chills to think about I think everyone should see this movie. And I just thought it was since asional loved Perry. I think everyone should see. The movie as well. I was a little disappointed that I didn't cry at the end. And I think part of the reason this might have happened is two things first we had Arbi g the documentary, which gives you break. It basically added to what I already knew about her. And and then we get this which I would describe as as maybe glossier Hollywood style version of that story. So I think that's away from it a little bit. Also, I saw it at af I fest and director Mimi leader made me cry with her intro to the movie, and then at the end of the movie, I didn't cry, but tears are no tears. I still think this is a great crowd-pleaser that sends a beautiful message that can only benefit everyone to hear over and over again. And also, it's pretty riveting and entertaining. It's basically impossible not to care for Felicity Jones and Armie hammer because their performances, but one of the layers of the story that I liked more than anything else was the family. And I mean, the trio of the family because when you throw in Keighley Spain, and you just see the different generation between. Ruth and Jane her daughter and how she's she's kind of like her mother, but also kind of different and watching the two of them have to get on the same level. I thought that was one of the most moving pieces of this entire movie. I liked this film a lot. I think it's a great companion piece to RPG the documentary which was a Sundance last year. So. I think that's going to get nominated for best documentary for sure the film making style of on the basis of sex. It's pretty straightforward. It's pretty conventional. I dare to say formulaic in some ways. But bio-pic it's a bio pic, you know, the film making style it's and all of that special. But the story definitely is the performances are I mean, a plus Jones is great like you said Jones disappears. Weirded Felicity Jones, go like, it makes me think about how good. She is Jeff like the utility player in almost every movie that she's in because she could just be anything like this is gin Urso listen in every revolution. There's one person with a vision and Ruth Bader Ginsburg had that Bishen the barriers had to overcome to establish equality. I mean, she was doing it, Dan. She's still doing it. Now, you know, there's still a massive imbalance gender imbalance in all forms. Not just entertainment, but everywhere everywhere. Everyone gender gap ethnicity, everything right? So that makes this film extremely relevant and timely more relevant timely now than it even was back in the day when she was doing this at her at her most influential peak, and although she's very influential nap because she's like a superhero in a rockstar at this point. But I liked the film a lot. I love the performances. The chemistry was great Armie hammer, you know, that it was a love story between between Ruth and her husband Martin. And the way they elevate each other and the way that they. You know, they absolutely love each other respected each other. Again, it was it was very straightforward film. Nothing wrong with that. I enjoyed it. Very much. What's your letter grade, gray? No question. Okay. How about you? I wound up giving it a b I wanted. I wanted a little more of a of an emotional rise out of it towards the end, which I didn't get. But I still think it's a great watch. Yeah. I give it a very good watch. An absolutely I agree. It's in theaters now. And you know, what this is a movie that you do need to see because the performances are great story is terrific. It's timely. It's relevant. Police spread the word. Do your part spread the word about a movie like on the base of sex living on to what is streaming right now on Hulu. Wow. This movie's really something fire fried directed by Jenner her Jenner. I and what was advertised the by promoter Billy McFarland as a music festival in paradise fails, miserably and spectacularly and I kinda give shout out to Perry. New. You're gonna do it. I tell ya. Get you. She said she said, we got to review this movie, and I went well, it'll be around get overview another time on review, talk and the other night. I was like homelands like mine. I watched it on Hulu. So everyone can watch it. Boy, Mike glad I did. I texted her, and I'm like, okay, we're doing, and I said, let's watch this forget about the other movie, let's do fire fraud. So because I did that because I made you what just your whole schedule. Great rake, which you think holy macro documentary. I was riveted because I saw all this going down on social I had never seen it prior to that. I wasn't one of the people think God that wanted to sell. Oh, my belongings to buy a ticket to this thing and was experiencing a lot of shot and for it was watching it online, like laughing hilariously the cheese sandwich. Picture. I couldn't turn this movie on fast enough. Okay, right away. We're gonna yes. Oh, good. Reminding me it streaming turned it on was just absolutely fascinated by everything they've collected. And I'll let you guys talk about your opinion before I start getting into all of my questions about the production of this documentary because I have so many small things I wanna talk about. Okay. Go ahead Perry. Joe? I am fascinated by this story. I was fascinated when it was actually happening. I was definitely one of those people that was kind of sit at. Sitting and monitoring as it was unfolding on social media. And then watching all the news reports about it. And the fact that they got the creator involved in this documentary that was kind of the hook for me and lose by sitting sitting there watching this and watching him sit in that room and dodge like every other question, I was like my skin was crawling. I found it so frustrating, and I suspect that was the point. But also, just, you know, also, like, I'm part of this age group to and watching how this documentary has a little something to say about, you know, the kind of culture that we grew up with and how that's relevant for this particular story, and why certain individuals whether you were a victim in the situation or you were the person lying to thousands and thousands of people and ruining. I mean who knows what some of these people spent basically selling everything they owned to go, and basically just have all that money and all those. Disappear. It's just crazy to think that certain individuals can grow up feeling entitled to pull something like that. And then just to see the repetitive nature of it. I was laughing like you were laughing. But also, I was sick to my stomach at the same time. Then I think the combination of those two things I couldn't take my eyes off this movie at you know, gusting this there's a whole lot more to this movie than meets the eye. Yeah. And I remember when all this was going down, you know, just sort of seeing some of the things on on Twitter, mostly and not your generation on a little bit older, which is obvious. But, you know, hey, you're only as old as you feel right now the but a number. Any fight this Billy McFarland this like frat boy type of socio Pat, this influencing heat that he like like for starters, how he was able to charm so many people into getting his way. And Nope, people saw the warning signs and didn't stop them. And the you have this. These these really rich kids who are selling everything all their belongings to go and partying paradise with the babes on speedboats, and jetskis and everything. On it. Just there's so much to the film in how this guy at Billy McFarland. Like, he like, you know, even after everything he's like a still associated path, but you had some points. Great. So I have never seen an individual besides jar rule that needs media training more than Billy McFarland. Right. Because he doesn't know how to answer questions. He is like basically, the world's worst con, man. And and it's through the power of social media that he was able to trick everyone because he wasn't actually doing the talking. And when you look at him, it's it's eat makes you feel even more angry on behalf of these people. So consider the footage that they've included in the documentary. It's fascinating when you think about all of the very high quality shots of like Billy and a helicopter belly Billy on a boat. Billy walking down the street. And it's like where did this come from? If it was archive will like how who? Gave it to them. Right, right. Or did Billy let them shoot him? Because that's makes him even bigger of associated absent. He's he's doing a documentary about how he defrauded all these people. He still proud of it. He's gone through these criminal proceedings. And he's letting people film them on a helicopter. That is crazy the nature of this whole event to I mean, even just like, narrowing it down to the actual people arriving on the island, and realizing that it's a big fat disaster. Those words some of them were social media influencers all that footage was going to get out there. It's just how there's so many red flags scattered from start to finish in this story. How did nobody pick up on it and say this is just going to end with doom and gloom for everybody involved. And even when you think about the the Jerry media guys boy, oh, what an interesting little angle that. I for one had not even thought about. Before seeing this documentary, but they're responsible for the marketing. Yeah. And the marketing guy that was doing the campaigns is interviewed and it's fascinating to listen to him talk. But even more fascinating is that Jerry media did the competing documentary that be loading to Netflix in days when the second this movie was over I went over to net flix and was like I have to see that. Yeah. Yeah. It's gonna be available. As people are watching this episode of the show too. So it's going to be really interesting after to want to go straight there and start to watch. Because social media is all about how you present yourself within the format, and that's what Jerry media gets to do with their own documentary. I want to rewatch all the footage of the Fima tents. I want to hear their side of the story. Billy is a complete psychopath. And I just I don't even know if it's psycho or sociopath tweet me. But I just think this is fascinating in the documentary was so well executed there is one thing. I want to say what's up, very Michael Moore style. This footage was absolutely manipulated to give you a an opinion. Now one point out the documentary is just the presentation of the filmmakers opinion cloaked in a film. Right. There's a lot of shots of people staring vacantly. There's a lot of well placed laughter. Right. This is all edited this. Didn't necessarily go down the way that it was seen seems like it did in the interview. This is what the documentarian wanted you to see. And so it's like every blank stare. It's like, yeah. That was while they were listening to somebody ask a question, not necessarily the one that you hear in the documentary two point just happens. A lot of documentaries to happens in Michael Moore documentary, and it's beautifully crafted to present this point that these people were absolutely defrauded and have something to be angry about and that social media is something we really need to think, very careful social media. You know, the first of all just the perception of fear of missing out, the Fono the menace of influencers, quote, unquote, influencers like, you know, you have. You have one of the Jenner, and it's like, you know, tweeting out or on their Instagram whatever hundred and fifty grand. Post. So there's that and just a whole again, this movie is a lot a lot of food for thought. What's your letter grade Perry? My letter grade for this is an a minus like I said, I could not look away. Okay. Yeah. Me too. Okay. Real fast moving on. Also, streaming this is on Amazon prime. This is a movie that got a little overlooked during during the fall season. But now, you could see it right at the click of a buttoning your own home. He could see the amazing performances from Steve Carell, and hopefully soon the be Oscar nominee Timothy shallow. May this is beautiful boy based on a pair of bestselling memoirs by writer journalist, David Sheff, and his drug addicted son recovering drug addict, son, Nick, I loved this movie. I think now that you can actually see this at home and not have to worry about going to the theaters. I mean, this is a perfect kinda movie to strain at home. And now you can do it. If you have Amazon prime real quick Perry, which you think I really I I was about to say, I really liked this movie. But then I remember my reaction walking out of it at tiff where I needed hours if not an extra day or two to fully recover from this this movie, basically ripped your heart out, and then smashes it all over the floor because it. It really paints a very clear picture of how addiction is in some simple quick fix. It. Something that comes back. It's something that you need a certain amount of support around you in order to get past. And really ultimately in the end, you never really get passed it. It's always a part of you. And there's that maintenance idea behind it. I thought it was a really just robust version of what that kind of experience could be and I think it becomes even more heart wrenching from these phenomenal performances. Feel expand Gronigen I've grown again something else. If you have not seen one of his other movies, broken circle breakdown. He has an immense amount of skill when it comes to just getting the waterworks flowing, and he is now broken my heart into a million pieces twice so job. Well done. It's a lyrical devastating picture of addiction. And I think that just it existing is going to help a lot of people on both sides of the equation. Both the person that struggling with addiction and the people in their lives. I think Steve Kerr. AL was a little miscast. I wasn't completely sold on his performance fat. Timothy shallow may was unbelievable. And so the movie felt a little bit like a mixed bag to me. But it is far outweighed by how important it is. And if it helps people read the books, I think also that's really important because it just an amazing achievement. I dislike that it was. It was not in linear was a little more north challenging Ben is back, which is also movie about addiction with Julia Robertson. Lucas hedges? It's more. It's much more straightforward. And that's fine. Also powerful in its own right? But I did think that that Timothy shall mate's performance was was topped his Oscar nominated performance in commie by your name. I was going to say can you ever forgive me different move slightly. But all right. Well, listen, gray. Everyone can find you at great Drake on Twitter act Ray, Drake on Instagram. Okay.

Episode 7- Thor, Where'd you go Bernadette, Jojo Rabbit, The Goldfinch, Aeronauts, The Good Liar, Baffled, Friday the 13th Part 3, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

"Aw Hey everybody how's everybody doing doing today. Thank you for joining me on three hundred sixty five movies in three hundred sixty five days and this is Jose so today's show. We have a few things to get to. We are going to talk for New Thorn. Movie was sort of announced just yesterday. We're also going to do some movie reviews with the good the bat in the ugly we have the good men who shot Liberty Valance the bad Friday the thirteenth part three and the ugly a movie called baffled. We are also going to talk about or I'm GonNa talk to you is about five five new and original movies that are coming out later on this year. These are movies that are not sequels prequels or associated with anything else. Sometimes they're associated with books at the most so let's get right to it so it was announced yesterday at a surprise for everybody that we are going to be getting a new movie thor for now. It doesn't have a name. It doesn't have a plot. It doesn't even have a date because apparently they're just getting to the writing portion but it was announced that tiki walkie the Tika Tikki TIKKI WAIKIKI is coming back as the director and so his crims hens words so people who are concerned that you know sore was going to be going away in that the end of it. He has coming back now. There are some interesting things to know about author I so it looks like it might be released before the next Guardian so the galaxy which now puts into question everything that we saw at the end of avengers endgame is sourced are going to be fat is east are going to go with guardians ends what is going to happen. I have no idea I have no way to predict you know I'm not part of the inner circle and we probably will get more <hes> clarification at COMECON <hes> S._T.. <hes> later on but what I would not be surprised this is if this is kind of hybrid where it takes on a little bit of the Guardians in has them in the movie and yet still is a sore feature in news that asked the launching pad four the next guardians movie so that's my idea that that's what it might be. I have no way of knowing but we'll soon find out and it's great excitement. I mean the last automobile. It was my favorite M._C.. Movie it was flat out great. It had great action great performances great music. The story was great had great humor at had everything <hes> that I really want out of a movie so I'm personally really excited about it now. The only thing that Kinda sucks about this is that it puts off indefinite the new accuser movie which is a movie that has been in development for a long time and I was was hoping we might finally get it so it's a little bit of a bummer that batsman put place on hold now but like I said hey sores pretty good so that's the only thing in the news that I have today <hes>. It's been a little bit quiet time in Hollywood. I think everybody's getting getting ready for all. The big excitement of COMECON that like I said is coming soon once that does come you know I will keep you up on. What's happening there so the next thing I want to do? Is You know there's so much talk these days about out you know original movies versus you know the sequels prequels reboots and you know I p type movies where it seems like it's the same junk going over and over and over and over again and there's always people complain we. I just want original movies. I always say there's tons of original movies. You have to seek it out. You know it isn't going to be just dropped in your lap so it kind of went to focus on five original movies that are coming out that I'm particularly looking forward to. I do have a longer list of an additional five that if you go to the show notes go to our homepage you can see the other five movies but these are just five of the ones that annoy particularly looking forward to. I'm two of these are based on a book and one of them is is a semi documentary. Not Documentary is semi autobiography. I should say and then the other two are conscious completely brand new <hes> ideas but let's get with it so the first one is called. Where'd you go Bernadette now? This is a movie that stars <music> are Kate Bencher who is let me tell you I actually read this book. It is a great great book so I'm really looking forward to it with that. Sad in you would say well. What are you looking forward to it? If you already know what happens it I wanNA see how it comes out. This is the thing about books you know how they're yes. There's a little bit of a surprise is is taken away because you read the book and you know Howard turns out but these characters the situations that they go through have been in your head. Only I and now you're gonNA see them. Come to life and it's always exciting to see how close you were with. What you you know envisioned in your mind now like I said it has a great cast? I mean Cate Blanchett right there. That's a winner <hes>. It's been directed by Richard Linklater who is one of the best directors outer so I have great confidence that this is going to be top notch movie. It is scheduled to be released on August sixteenth so not that much longer but a month for now like I they said what was complain about non original movies. Come you know not being out there not gaining the same love. This is one that I hopefully will. You know you're able to say yeah you know. Let's go ahead and support a movie like this. So that's that now if you want to know what the movie movie is about just a quick little view with how giving you too much Cape plays a character named Bernadette and Bernadette hates people hates live hit doesn't leave her house doesn't do much of anything and then one day she just disappears and it is up to to her daughter be yes. Her name is B. B.. E. It's her mission to go out and find out what happened to her. Mom It's mystery but then it's not it's just a very compelling story that I hope really comes out well. The next movie we how is called the Goldfinch now the goal which is also based on a book however this one's a little different so this one stars one of the hottest actors out there ansel elgort right probably and he stars <unk> as a young kid named field field survives a terrorist attack that takes his the life of his mother and in the midst of that he county gets thrown into this world where life from that point on dozen go the path that he expected it to happen. He ends going from place to place and at one point ends up with his dad who's an alcoholic and then gets mixed into this art forgery type situation. It is another you know movie based on the book that I read and and I loved the books book is amazing. It's one of those ones you really once you start really picking it up. You don't put it down. It's great for great characters great situations in great insight into life and so I hopefully for me it has everything thing the poor cat <hes>. That's you know that's one of the hopes a lot of times you know in movies like this what I'm really looking forward to. The most when it comes to this is that from the trailer that I've seen so far is that it has the same <music>. How can I put this the scene feeling about life because you see yourself in the characters and like I was saying it's the same thing with you know where to go? Bernadette you have these visions of what the characters are liking her head swimming around there you know and and when you see it in front of you you want you wanted to be what you always thought it was in your head. I'm looking really looking forward to it. <hes> it looks promising in it looks great so far <hes> hopefully it won't be one of those movies that doesn't in quite capture audiences and I think that the good thing about it is that it's not it's not being released in the summer so it's not necessarily a summer pick on but hopefully it actually you know does well enough because it's coming out on September thirteenth dead in. Maybe it's being positioned for an Oscar. You know who knows. Maybe they seen something that we haven't but it looks great. The next movie that you know I have is something that's a little bit different and for this. We're going to go back to our old frank what T._d.. He is coming out with a movie. Call saw Joel Rabbit now Joe Joe Rabid is being released on October eighteenth and Joe Joe Rabbit is one of those movies who the premise sounds ridiculous okay so here's the premise we have a German boy named Joe Joe who discovers in his mom rosie has been hiding a young Jewish girl in their addict right the only person that Joe Joe can turn to his his imaginary friend who is named eat off Hitler and Joel must confront this hi dea of nationalism. It is right there right Adolf Hitler. I mean that's bold really bold and it looks wonderful. I don't expect anything lasting great from this movie <hes> but I can also understand how it probably makes some people on comfortable but hopefully that's not the case <hes> it's been released by Walt Disney Studios <hes> and this doesn't you know at first sight sound doesn't sound like something that Walt Disney would release but who knows maybe this is one of their air like stabs at Saint. Hey how we can take this project on and maybe it's so good enough that we can turn this into. You Know Award seasons like I said I really. I'm looking forward to this because it's it's a new in a different original and a bold idea and I liked bold ideas in movies. Don't get me wrong. I loved the sequel to love the you know all that's of the reboots and everything else characters were familiar with those movies always no matter how much they spin it aren't bold. They're not taking chances and that's the one one thing about like the M._c.. I love the M._C.. You movies but they're not bold. None of them are bold. There's not one of them that takes any really big in oh chances in its filmmaking this by naming a character Adolf Hitler bold as it gets trey the next one our forth movie is a slow. It's it's a mixture of drama and biography. It's called aeronautics now. Aeronautics is scheduled to be released on October twenty fifth. This is a movie that reunites Eddie Rudman and Felicity Jones who did really well together who did really well in the theory of everything. The Stephen Hawking's are biography from a few years ago so with this movie what this movie's about it's about two scientists who go. Up in a hot air balloon to you know make discoveries about life and their fight for survival once they get up there. It's actually based on a real event that happened on September fifth of eighteen sixty two. I mixed. I'm interested in seeing what they do with this because I happen to like <hes> a good biography biographies are that aren't rock and not that I don't like the rock ones but I happen to really love biographies and I Really WanNa see what it is that they do here and I happen to really like Eddie run men and Felicity Jones so I'm excited about this the next one that I have here and it's last one is the most interesting maybe of the whole group and it is called the good liar now the good Liar Stars Cars Helen Mirren in Yemen McKinley Two pillars of America not I was GONNA say American cinema but not of British cinema basically here's a story Helen Mirren and McKinley Meet Online in through you know were the young people were call. The dating sites you know and Helen is worth money and E._S._p._N.. is a con artists who usually grow goes to you know swindle women of their money however when things start getting hitting blows he has to start thinking I'm falling basically for this woman but my job is to steal her money and the complexities of that situation is up trailer looks amazing and it looks taunt and you know full of you know thrilling you know patrols and all that great stuff. We don't see a whole lot of you know in movies these days now the movie is scheduled to be released on November fifteenth. Just in time you know in the midst of that you know Oscar talk you know towards at the end of the year so hopefully maybe that's why it's being released so late in the year. I personally am really looking forward to it all of these movies. I'm really looking forward to them. All of them are basically dramas none of them. Are you know granted venture you know special social effects blown up in the sky which are playing those. Don't get me wrong. There are plenty of those but these are great movies that probably that not probably do have great acting as the basis for great screenplays which Sean makes better movies now like I said if you go onto the show notes and you go to our home online you can get the other five movies that I'm really looking forward to also going to do a podcast episode episode soon. I'm working on it right now. where I lay out basically the movies going be on twenty nineteen? That are already scheduled that I'm really looking forward to so that's another thing I'm going to be working on soon. Is Let's go be on twenty nineteen. What's in our future and what what do we know so for now? All of these lose are currently scheduled to be released on the dates that I gave you <hes> thinks can change it is Hollywood. You never know now. If you WANNA see the trailers again go to the show notes. I'm going to link all the the links to the trailers so you can watch on and let me know what you think. Do you think any of these are worth watching. Do you think all of them sock or all of them great. Let me know what you think okay all right so now it's time for some reviews so this is the good the bad in the ugly reviews news remember. This is a take three movies one. That's good one that's bad and one that's just downright ugly. <hes> the first one is the good one and this is the man who shot liberty balances in nineteen sixty two American western directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne and James Stewart is a black and white was released by paramount pictures. It is a movie that was listed in the National Film Registry in two thousand seven so it must be a good movie right. Let me tell you this is one of my favorite Western's in. It's one of those questions that I think everybody should at one time or another really want. It is about the myth of the hero and the West now Western for a long time. Were a thing of you know the white man roads in writes in and you know he saves you from the dreaded a savage Indian and you know blind the hero with the white hat and all that garbage but as as the fifties turned into the sixties the not only was the world changing in especially America was changing so was the studio system system and so was how Hollywood was portraying the pass and there was a lot of directors in a lot of movies that were being made that suddenly started to turn the camera on itself and started to show Western's in a different light and this is one of both movies that started to reexamine what it meant to be a western and what I mean by that is the bulk of the story is about doer who placed his character <hes> who's a senator who comes back to his old hometown Berry John Wayne and then it's about a flashback of how Stewart became the man that he is but it's based on a lie and the whole point is look. We all have heroes. We all have people we look up to but do we always know how they got there and should we even know how they got their. Does it really matter sometimes and you have to outer solve these type of questions. If you know that your hero got to where they are in a way that was unsavory. Does that change you they aren't should you know there was a time when the media would said in newspapers and the news would've said No. We don't need to know that of course times have changed now but I think it's still really interesting. Look as to that that question. How much should we know about those people that we put up on that? Pedestal so that is a great movie you should watch the man who shot Liberty Valance is a great movie. Yes I know I know it's John Wayne in its western but trust me. He is not the John Wayne that you think even know he does say Pogrom Milan first time he released says that <hes> I know that that's like <hes> an image that we have John Wayne that he goes around saying hey pogrom and all that crap don't worry it's not that kind of western and anyways there's some great performances by ver- Miles Lee Marvin is great as always Edmond O'Brien lots of great stuff to keep you hooked into <hes> like I said go watch the man who shot liberty valance now for our bad movie. Today I have Friday the thirteenth par-three now. If if you listen to the last one of these that I did you heard me talk about partout and now I'm back with part three now. Does that mean in the next episode. I'M GONNA do perfor- I'm not sure haven't watched yet. Here's the thing about par-three part three in the reason why actually wanting to mention part three. Is it a good movie. No not really kinda bad. It was shot in Three D. in three D affects. You know how you you're there was always this <hes> joke about three D. movies that you know they're like ooh. Let me put a board in your face and let me drop water to assimilating rushing out you. This is what this was. There are so many of these. Let me swing this two by four. Let me do you know dropping. You know great sat you type bullshit that it really does make it seemed silly. That'll scenes are even included in the movie. 'cause they're unnecessary. What's necessary to know is this is the moment in which Jason finally gets his hockey mass? See if you'd watch the first to first of all in the first one there is no jason spoiler alert. It's his mom in the first the second one. He has a brock sap over his head. Most of the movie so in the third one is when we finally get that iconic Jason Mask on him. That's the only thing to really take away now. That doesn't mean that it's not worth watching because it it actually is kind of entertaining. Even though it's not good it's entertaining movie to watch if you happen to like horror movies there's plenty of blood and in fact some of the most gruesome death scenes ever including <hes> a woman who gets a Harpoon through her face classic but it is what you expect from a horror movie if you don't like blood if you don't like you know senseless violence. It's not a movie for you but it's not you know what you would. You know call high art of any kind. It's not even miserable art. It is just bad but it again like I've always said bad doesn't necessarily mean that it's not worth watching or not worth your time but it is about movie. Now we get to the ugly now. The ugly is something interesting. It's from nineteen seventy-three. It is a British made-for-television science-fiction thriller movie soaring of All People Leonard Nimoy now. I know I know now if you saw that crappy movies was the realme William Shatner will let me tell you about this one. This is called baffled. Now baffled is of really interesting movie in that here it is okay first of all. It was a made for T._v.. Pilot that you know what pilots are right there. Usually you know little self contained thirty to sixty minutes. T._v. shows auditions almost so they can base a whether they wanna Komo TV series out of you know these pilots and most of the time the pilots you know aren't any good in that's why they don't get made into T._v.. Shows but this one's interesting so it stars Nimoy as a racecar driver. I know I know named Tom and Tom While in a race at the beginning of the you know movie Ghezzi psychic visions of a place he's never been and then out of nowhere a woman named Michelle contacts and she's an expert on like the co in the two of them Kinda become a thing and traveled to where Nimoy has been getting his visions to solve the mystery. The mystery makes no sense and I'm GonNa put a longer review online of baffled but it's much like every other movie first of all it is is an ugly movie in that it's silly at times but it was actually kind of. I'm going to admit something a I was Kinda into it now. In my ever GonNa Watch again. No do I wish had been made into a T._v.. Show God yes it would have been interesting and the premises this is interesting. Even though the execution wasn't the greatest the execution wasn't great because you know Nimoy could enact that's the problem but the idea the concepts <hes> the intrigue of the mystery you know while you know not you know perfect were interesting in it led to me bean really into the movie. You can find that movie. I believe on Amazon Prime. If not what I'm going to do is GonNa put in the show notes exactly where you can find this movie but it is worth your time time if you happen to see it online. I saw it on Comet T._V.. So if you see it online by all means go watch it. It is actually not that bad. It is Kinda stupid and it kind of has to do something with witchcraft and you know some nonsense about money and at the end you're Kinda like wait. Was It really about witchcraft. I'm Kinda lost your in what happened to district and what happened to Zappers and it doesn't make sense like I said why for the Seventies. It wasn't that bad so that's been to they show. I really hope you guys enjoyed if not let me know you know that you'd have enjoy it but if you did don't forget to subscribe you can find us on all kinds of platforms you can find us on Itunes spotify glow podcasts pitcher.

The rabble rouser who inspired Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"Richard pod is sponsored by T. Rowe price. Are you looking to learn a thing or two about getting your finances in order saving and investing? Check out the confident wallet a personal finance podcast series by T. Rowe price and the Washington Post brand studio find it wherever you get your podcasts. Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen walled with retro pod. A show about the past rediscovered. There's a new film out about the life of supreme court Justice, Ruth, baiter Ginsburg, or as she's been dubbed, recently, our BG Ginsburg. I mean, our BG has become something of a pop culture icon. The new movie titled on the basis of sex focuses on the early law career of RV g played by Felicity Jones, and her key role in the women's rights movement. It's a riveting legal thriller in its own, right? But the film also serves as a historical canvas on which several forgotten heroes of those times spring back to life. One of them is Dorothy Kenyon, lawyer, activist rabble rouser. About halfway through on the basis of sex. The Hollywood version of Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes her daughter Jane to a decrepit office building in downtown New York in the early nineteen seventies. They are there to see Kenya. Played by Kathy Bates the moment. According to Ginsberg's daughter is pure fiction, though, the future supreme court Justice now eighty five never visited Kenya. Yet in the narrative arc of the movie. The scene is pivotal just as Kenyon was a pivotal figure in the arc of Ginsberg's legal career. Why well in the movie Ginsburg is there to ask Kenyan about Wendelin halt a woman who Ginsberg spoke of on the first day of her supreme court nomination hearing a woman Gwendolyn Hoyt had a philandering husband who had you million her to the breaking point regular. Maybe we didn't have names like battered women in those days, but she did not have a happy marriage. One day in rage. At the million to which he was exposed. She turned to the corner of the room and spied her young son's baseball bat. It was a broken baseball bat. She took it and brought it down on the head of her husband ending the fight ending. The husband starting them prosecution for murder. This occurred back in the late nineteen fifties in Florida where only men were lawfully bound to serve on juries. If women wanted to serve they had to volunteer. So very few women were in the jury pool Hoyt and her lawyers argued that this was unconstitutional because she was not judged by a jury of her peers one of her lawyers was Dorsey Kenyan. Kenyon was born in New York during the winter of eighteen eighty eight her father was a patent attorney a progressive one too. If you asked him once, according to her bitchy air in the New York Times can girls be lawyers father, if he answered smiling, why not my dear Kenyon, graduated from Smith College in one thousand nine hundred seventeen she earned a law degree from New York University. One of just a handful of US law schools in lightened enough to enroll them Kenyan emerged from. There is a crusading human rights attorney and endearing gadfly among her many titles and honors Kenyon was the first delicate of the United Nations commission on the status of women. Kenyon was also a fearsome. Verbal brawler. When Senator Joseph McCarthy labeled Kenyon, a communist. This was her response. He's a low down worm. And although it ought to be beneath my dignity to answer him a mad enough to say that he's a liar, and he can go to help. As one of the first board. Members of the American Civil Liberties union Kenyan wrote important legal briefs on behalf of clients, including Wendelin Hoyt Hoyts case made it all the way to the supreme court which ruled unanimously against her women are the center of the home the court said so it was naturally reasonable for them to be relieved from civic duty. But Kenyans lost in the case as the movie and history makes clear informed, the intellectual and emotional underpinnings of future legal arguments, including landmark gender equity cases Ginsburg argued in briefs to the supreme court.

Pelosi Directs Impeachment Articles; Eddie Redmayne In 'The Aeronauts'

"From NPR and WBZ YOU are. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Peter o'dowd it's here now this morning house speaker. Nancy Pelosi announced a historic new chapter in the impeachment inquiry are- against President trump sadly but with confidence in humility was allegiance to our founders and her heart full of love for America today. I'm asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment. This marks the next step in a deeply partisan battle to remove the president from office. Democrats say he abused his power in his dealings with Ukraine but the president said today that Republicans have never been more united needed NPR political reporter. Tim Mack joins us now in. Tim help us understand the history. The Nancy Pelosi made this morning right well. I think that she realized that it was a momentous comment on occasion and in some ways. We've been on a trajectory to this moment for some months I mean if you've been following the speakers Statement Linson her press conferences over the last year. She did come at this reluctantly she did. She was not initially interested in going down the path of an impeachment inquiry and now the drafting of articles of impeachment But the facts change as she has said repeatedly the facts the times have found us and now she has taken in this new step. which is the formal announcement of the drafting of these articles and Tim? What about the tone of the day we just heard Nancy Pelosi referenced? The founding fathers there's She talked about their fear of foreign influence. An election interference interference. Her mood was somber but then later in the morning she was visibly the angry. She said don't mess with me when a reporter asked if she hated the president You just got to wonder if this next step in impeachment is going to change. The tone tenor tenor in Washington. We're still very early in this impeachment process relatively speaking that the articles of impeachment have not been drafted. They need to be considered considered in committee than the full House would presumably need to vote on these articles in order for it to move forward and go to get sent to the Senate and then there will be a trial. We don't know how Lincoln that will be. There are a lot of very tense times ahead and House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi took hook offense when a reporter asked her if she hated the president. She said that she She's a Catholic and as a Catholic. She doesn't hate anyone And and so that is a that is an interesting sign of how heated this debate and this topic is going to be in coming months. Well there still is a lot that we do not know as you mentioned. One for instance is whether the articles will be narrowly focused on the issue of Ukraine or potentially include other high crimes. And misdemeanors is perhaps drawing in something from Robert Muller's investigation. How have Democrats been debating that behind closed doors? Well there's a split. Among Democratic lawmakers should the impeachment the articles be broader in scope. Like you said mention part of the Russia investigation and the findings of Mall report which suggested there were possible instances instances of obstruction of justice. Or should it just be. A narrowly focused narrowly tailored to just include the Ukraine issue and this alleged scheme. I'm that the president had to leverage. US Foreign Policy For personal and political gain. Now this is something that has yet been settled but it will have to be settled as they draft these articles in coming weeks. Let's hear from Republicans and their reaction to Nancy. Pelosi's announcement this morning. Here's House Minority leader. Kevin Kevin McCarthy. This is the day. The Nation is weaker because they surely cannot put their animosity or their fear of losing an election in the future. Sure in front of all the other things that the American people want McCarthy referring there to Democrats also accused the party of moving too fast without any proof of wrongdoing a tim are Republicans as unified as president. Trump said. They were on twitter today. Well right now. We're not seeing any house. Republicans at least indicate that they would support articles of impeachment. There was some hope As as Democrats approach this process Democrats thought that they could probably or possibly get a few moderate Republicans to join them for this For at least you know. Proving the rules of the impeachment inquiry that turned out not to be the case there hasn't been any indication amongst moderate Republicans that they are willing to join and approve articles of impeachment against the president based on the facts right now and just quickly after. These articles are drawn up. What's the time line because I see the Senate has basically cleared? Its calendar January. That's right they it's Very uncertain actually senators received a calendar of the year all twelve months with the exception of January which was totally blank senator in a in an elevator just staring at that month on this page of twelve January is not even listed as a blank spot where that is. It's GonNa be a very uncertain process as we go towards a trial. We don't know how long it is. It's GonNa take some time for those issues to be resolved in the first step. Is the house. Judiciary Committee will be meeting meeting on Monday to hear from lawyers from the relevant committees about the facts of the investigation. NPR's to Mac. Thanks so much thanks a lot. Republican Congressman Devin Nunes has of California the ranking member on the house. Intelligence Committee has been defending himself this week. After call records show he had contacts with left. Parnis Parnasse is the ukraine-born rain born businessman arrested October on campaign finance violations. He also allegedly worked with RUDY GIULIANI TO DIG UP DIRT. On Joe Biden a scheme parnes. His lawyer says Nunez helped with two. Here's what Nunez had to say to Fox News Sean. Hannity on Tuesday to this guy less partners or whatever his name is it's possible but I haven't gone through all my phone records. I don't really recall that name. I remember they name now because he's been indicted elise lease V.. Back has been looking at noon as possible involvement. She's with The Washington Post investigative political reporter there. At least welcome. Thank you very much for having me. Let's start with these phone logs. Tell us what they tell us. Exactly about Nunez's contact with Parnassus. Well it we're looking at an episode in the month breath of April We see at least three contacts in a single day between newness and Parnis and this was a couple of days after a Nunez traded. Some communications with Rudy Giuliani. And I think the month of April is important because that's the same month that Maria Vich. The former ambassador to Ukraine crane was recalled. It's a key period during this Ukraine saga. And so I think we're all wondering exactly what the content of those phone calls slots. CNN is also reported that Arneses lawyer. Joseph Bondi said that noon is met with the X.. Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokhin in Vienna Anna last year Nunez has sued. CNN over that story. But what do we know about that alleged meeting so we have not confirmed that we heard the same thing from parnassus lawyer but as you said Nunez himself has a thoroughly denied it. He says that instead of being in Vienna meeting was Shokhin he was actually in Benghazi Libya and also in Malta. So congressional travel records do show that he was in Europe around that time what. We are unsure sure of his weather. That was the multi trip that newness has pointed to or whether he was indeed in Vienna. What are the implications if he was communicating with us which I think it raises some really interesting questions about conflicts of interest for Mr Newness who we should note has been a longtime ally and booster the president? He was part of his transition team following the two thousand sixteen election. So I think for Mr Newness. This is very tricky territory And therapist different several Democrats who have Given rise to the possibility of perhaps an ethics investigation the most senior Democrat in the house have mentioned something along these lines would have been steny Hoyer heuer. The House majority leader. Who said this week that he wants some of these questions answered and it's possible that the House committees will play a role in that and if the reports about about Nunez's communication with partners or true? What would that tell you about the reach of the administration's efforts in Ukraine the trump administration will it just shows if it's true how coordinated coordinated and sort of thoroughgoing this effort was but we should clarify we at the Washington Post reported that this is true and that it happened but we do know? Oh that from these call records released by the report by the House Intelligence Committee this week that there were so many contacts between a Giuliani. Perhaps trump trump parnassus John Solomon the former columnist for the hill so And these came at at very crucial moments in the Ukraine saga. So I think that that if it's true that newness was involved which he's he's left. Open the possibility that he spoke with love partners. He as you aired on that clip. So I think that if he was involved there are some pretty serious questions facing him about conflicts of interest and left parties. Lawyer has said that Nunez should have recused himself from the impeachment inquiry. What do you think Parnassus motivations here are in talking about the potential involvement of Devin Nunes? Well Parnasse has really been mounting public campaign to be allowed to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry His lawyer one of his lawyers said that with appropriate protections parnasse would fill in the blanks. Thanks in terms of what he talked about with Devon newness so we're a little unclear on whether partner will be allowed to testify. It's possible that he will not be because. Of course he is being prosecuted federally Under campaign finance charges in the hill tends to yield to the Justice Department in cases like this but I think that if he were to testify. Hi It's possible we would find out some very interesting information from him and could newness face some kind of repercussion or punishment if it turns out he was involved in was communicating with Parnis. It's it's possible and and I think those Democratic lawmakers have hinted at those consequences we should also note that He has been investigated before. The ethics committee cleared him in December of two thousand seventeen after he was accused of giving classified information to the White House. So we have sort of seen this story play out before but in that case it's important to note that he was cleared that is at least feedback Washington Post investigative political reporter. Thank you so much. Thank you The new film. The aeronautics tells a little known chapter in the history of flight the quest to go higher than anyone in history in a balloon Oscar winning actor actor Eddie Read Main Stars as scientist James Glacier who attempted to set the altitude record back in eighteen sixty two red main won the Oscar in two thousand fifteen for playing Stephen Hawking the theory of everything Felicity Jones Co starred in that film. She Co Stars in this film as well playing balloon pilot. Amelia Ren in this scene the to prepare for takeoff. Aikoff you ready yes. I just need to retake brown readings do one final check with the equipment equipment. I don't touch this. How the Aaron's opens in theaters tomorrow and joining me? Now is Eddie. Read main welcome to here and now hi how are you doing well. Thank you so much for joining us and we should say. By the way that Felicity Jones character was not a real person. She's based on several all female. But your character. James Glacier was a real person tell us about him. Well that's true so the film is There's a wonderful book who falling outputs which is a kind of history of ballooning and I'll film is of inspired by some of the best bits of the greatest hits of some of those moments James Glacier was a nineteenth century early meteorologist at the time on the idea of predicting the weather who's deemed absurd and he ended up. I mean the real figure had Clergyman doctors up and down the country taking measurements on what the weather was doing around Britain and he was the first person to late late those piece of information and try to find patterns in it but he went helping in a balloon and was desperate to try and everyone at at the time science was being used an adventure being used people climbing Everest going polls and people going up in balloons in in competitions To sort of see who go the highest but no one was necessarily using it to find out information about the unknown and so he was A. That's what he was attempting to. Nobody believes that you could could even ever figure out how to predict the weather exactly. It was seemed dim crazy and and he was sort of look down on and meteorology was seen as sort out of Hocus pocus and for me. One of the things I found. Riveting is it was a moment in history. I knew nothing about. It actually never occurred to me. There was a time when people of course didn't of any idea what was coming so that was one of the elements. I found intriguing. Well the other thing about it is that you know we think about the history of flight and we think about airplanes and we think about the Wright brothers or whoever but I guess I never really spent a lot of time thinking about the fact that before there were airplanes we had to figure out how to get balloons up in the air and that that was a whole part of history. All on its own you know there was was a book for me by Julian Bonds. One of my favorite authors cooled the levels of life and the first chapter of that basically talked about Ali balloon flight and what it must have been like to be the first people to see the world from the sky. And it's a beautiful meditation that book I read this. Maybe eight eight years ago and found it very impactful and so when this script derived it how to let wonder how will the the idea of looking up and the pioneering nearing sense of the unknown. I found kind of intriguing mixed with the kind of old fashioned adventure so it was that sort of combination. But one of the things that was interesting from a filmmaking. Filmmaking point of view is when now of course numb to sing the Welsh from the sky because people go aeroplanes it was. How do you make an audience? Look at that new a freshen Russian and and and going up in Abilene is a very specific thing particularly gas balloons. which is what these guys flew in? Because it's so silent all right you're completely. Ah The whim of the elements. Almost all of this film takes place in a bull in. What was it like to film? How high up did you go? Or how often were you actually in a balloon versus in something that made it look like you were in a balloon. Well so the important differentiation is is these were gas balloons so they don't really exist in the UK anymore That is to say a helium or hydrogen balloon taped in by a net basically an attached to a basket and the way you go up is by letting go and the way you come down by putting a rope that lets the gas gas out and the other thing you can use as you can throw off ballast to to make you go higher So really they built a balloon for film they recreated created the. Mammoth the famous balloon from this flight but in our country there aren't many people who fly gas balloons anymore. So they built one and we went up on our first few days of filming felicity and I were in costume and they shot us from helicopters and drones and Jones is his. WHO's in the film with me? As does astonishing things in the in this movie is risk is concerned and and she was sitting up in the hoop the balloon despite the fact that we have thousands of feet in the air but it was incredibly peaceful and I am very beautiful while these these drones and helicopters fishing and when they left they disappeared off. Once they got the footage they needed them. We I just had to land. But of course the technology hasn't changed for one hundred fifty years and so our landing was catastrophic. Can we very very nitty killed herself. and so It was a scary few days of filming in the balloons But with one really quite intense crash and from then on we moved into studios. Radio's where this basket was suspended around blue curtains and although interestingly they they refrigerated the studios so that you could feel the cold ooh breath thirty thousand. Let's listen to scene from the movie actually. Which of course shows how dangerous ballooning can be You're flying into a storm here this. I doubt whether closing the do you want to be. One of my readings suggested a store. That's what it is inside the Kenyan it just precisely so orange say by the way that this is not the first time that you've been in a film with Felicity Jones who plays your wife in the theory of everything exactly. Yeah so one of the great appeals me with this film when I was sent. The script was the idea of getting to to to play opposite. Felicity again who. I just the dual as an actor and as a friend and that weird thing that actors have that often were close to people when you're working and then and you push each other and get to learn each other's process yes and then you go off and start a new thing and actually to come back and work with someone picking up where you left off with an intriguing idea and we loved it. We will also stuck in a tiny basket for months on end it was important. We got something else that I noticed about the two films. which is that in the theory of everything you were playing Stephen Hawking someone with LS for for much of the movie you had to act without talking and in this film? You're up so high in the sky that you're so cold you're frozen and you also so have to do the same thing. There's exactly the carrot gets HYPOC. Share at the moment in which Felicia's character has to kind of save their lives. But it's interesting one of the things I love about what I do. Is You get gun research it and you'll give him the freedom to go and play around it so so the Hypoxia Element of the film. We actually went the director and I to this place where they put pilots who are training into these tanks and change the air pressure to recreate what it's it's like thirty five hundred feet and what's interesting is that you feel rather than feeling dreamy. You actually get incredibly confident that they make you do. Are these tests one plus one and you're sitting there and they make you do it every three seconds and one plus one you obviously want one is forced Japan gets more and more drunk. Concomitant uh-huh lately so that was interesting and bringing those sort of things that you learn and try to find ways into the into the peace with it so but no you're right. Were that were definitely similarities. I mean that was a moment when I've I've spent a lot of the past six years. Tweed or in period drama costumes sort of looking and to do an American contemporary piece. And and then this came along play an English period drama playing a scientist and yet it with something in it. That was wasn't necessarily what I've been to keep woman. It was something that I think pleasingly unique so wanted to pursue one thing. That is different about this film for you is that you are now an academy award. Winning best actor has that. How has that changed your life in your career? Yeah it's an interesting question. I think the reality is that it gives you. It gives you more choice. And that's something you know for many years when you're starting out as an actor you you will dishing for things and you've given you're lucky enough to be employed and and then in something like theory of everything happens and suddenly your your you'll send things and given more of a sense of choice but it's interesting because when you're starting out as a kid you get sent a script and it's like Cate Blanchett is attached to this this director and this and that that comes with a sense of expectation. Will you go those brilliant actors and that's a wonderful thing thing where suddenly you'll being given the script before as a director attached early on in the process and so suddenly it's your Thoughts and ideas and an and taste rav that of someone else and we should also say that there are probably some listeners. Who are hearing? Talk to you right now in thinking. I don't care about this new movie. I want to know what it's like to be. Newt scamander fantastic beasts. This is the latest Harry Potter Franchise. Do you get stopped in the street by especially young people who want you to perform spells or Do a particularly the. There's a particular age when magic is still completely real In which I always feel like I let people down by not being out of sort of whip out a Netflix from my pocket. Or is it a victory magical creature of some description and and it's an amazing thing. It's a really wonderful awful thing. Because you make films in in these vacuums and whereas with you see an audience every night you can feel whether they're coming on the ride with your enjoying it and what's whatever the film's as you make them at this particular moment in time and you and then they come out years later. And even though you sort of know they're in cinemas or they're streaming you. You don't necessarily know that people it feels all the people actually going on watching it so when people come in react With excitement enjoy particularly something. That's aimed at ah with kids in mind. It's really special. We'll have to say that I have wanted to go on a hot air balloon my entire life and I want to even more now after watching this film although I would stop op at maybe fifteen thousand feet and then just come. I figured that would be a wise idea for them. That is Eddie. Read Main Academy Award winning actor who stars in the new film. The aeronautics. What's Eddie read may thank you so much for joining us?

Thanks to you. Now let's get back to the news news. The San Francisco Forty niners have suspended commentator Tim Ryan for comments. He made about Baltimore. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson after after the Ravens. beat the forty niners last Sunday. Here's Ryan on. KNB Our radio talking about why Jackson is so good at hiding the ball. When running fake handoffs other players is dark skin geller with a dark football with a dark uniform thing? Lamar Jackson is black. Ryan who is white and also also played in the NFL has apologized. He says he regrets his choice of words. Mike PESCA is here. Now's sports analysts. He hosts the daily podcast the gist. It's late Dot Com and Mike. We've spoken with you about Lamar Jackson this season. Because he's very good. He's a potential. Mvp what are your thoughts on on this latest story. It's the very definition of ignorance but tinged with something more and. I don't know that it was the intent of Tim Ryan but you have to. Well let's first of all just flat out say it's not true the the coloration of of a brown football against the Ravens Dark Jersey and whatever Lamar Jackson skin color is said to be it is not why he's so good at a fake handoffs. He's so good at fake hand off because a that's a skill set unto itself and be. He's this ultimate threat weapon where he can run the ball and throw the ball all and since a defender has to honor all those things you can't always assume he's going to do one instead of the other so that just the fact but the other thing I would say the tinge is you know the position of the black quarterback is the most fraught in the NFL. And even Lamar Jackson showing that he was this amazing player in college. kind of anyone with eyes would say. Oh my God let's get this guy in the NFL and see what he can do. You know he was told to play wide receiver. He was a top scouts. Were saying Oh. I don't think it could be a quarterback and you'd have to think that this is only because he was black and people who were who are scouts and you know people who are very expert in these in this field her also more. Cognizant of the racial history will flat out. Tell you that so you add it all together and this. The suspension suspension seems warranted. I'm not gonNA say anything about what Tim Ryan intended. Or what's in his heart but it's really an ignorant and damaging thing to say well either way regardless he will not be in the broadcast booth against the saints this weekend. So let's talk about something else did basketball. Did you see Lebron. James Travel Travel last night in Utah. But you know who did it. Listen let me talk about this real quick. The video is just unreal. Lebron James is casually dribbling. The ball down the court and then he just stops dribbling and takes three and a half steps up the court and you don't have to know much about basketball to know that that is a traveling violation. The REF did did not call it. And here's Lebron James after the game. Yeah it was the worst thing. I probably WANNA work my career. I didn't even realize I didn't have time to be honest. One of my coaches show me. I ain't even realize realize I did it. I think at the same time one of the worst things Mike I ever did in my career. Yeah and this guy took his talents to south beach. I don't know I can't actually tell. If he was kidding he was essentially saying all right guys. You know I literally walked on non-competitive play non-competitive part of the play away or if he was saying Oh my God that really was egregious. And I'll call myself out on wor listeners. Should know is that he just casually walking the ball up the court. He wasn't really being being guarded at this point and there was no reason he started to walk except perhaps he had the mental lapse. Yeah and then. The referees did and the embarrassing thing is there is always been the accusation and stats bear this out GonNa quick great great pros get the call. And maybe this was Lebron benefiting from the wrath swallowing Mike Tusk sake so much defense secretary Mark Esperer says the. US has finished pulling troops out of northeastern Syria about six hundred US troops to remain in the rest of the country as says. Those troops are focused on counterterrorism operations against what's left of the Islamic state. Meanwhile Russia has moved in to fill the vacuum that the US created when it left the area NPR reports. Russian flags are flying in Syrian. Kurdish towns the Syrian Kurds are longtime US allies but they have turned to Russia for military support since president. Trump's withdrawal order in October joining us now is Peter Galbraith former. US Ambassador Longtime Specialists Silas on the Kurds and just back from Syria. Welcome good to be with you when I what do you make of the news. being reported by NPR that Russian flags are flying in the Kurdish territory of Syria. Well it's not surprising because the Russians have come in along along the border They have military police. They're they're protected by the Syrian Kurdish military forces But overall the the scene in northeast serious perhaps a bit reminiscent of the bar scene from Star Wars Russian troops. There are Turkish troops there regime forces and of course there the Kurdish forces. You just returned from the region yourself. What were you doing there and what what would you say? Things are like on the ground at this point well I've been part of a process talking talking to the Syrian Kurds about negotiation so with Damascus. As well as mediating between the Syrian Kurds and the Iraqi Kurds but also I was Involved in an effort to extract some children from the Isis camps Got Out a young American three year old so some success S.. We'll tell me more about that. Well so they're about ten thousand Foreign Women and children about seven thousand of them are children in three camps. All of the women chose to go to Syria and most of them remain radical but if the the children remain in the camps I it's a terrible place for children but also They're gonNA grow up and be radicalized. They'll be the next generation of jihadis. So the idea is simply to try to get as many of them out as possible. In this case it was a An American orphan and a German women woman and her children a woman who had long since renounced The Islamic state and all of them are back in Germany. The American is back in the United States. You also met with the leader of the Syrian Kurds. Right Muslim Kabbani I did and how does he feel about The US pull out in the future of the Kurds in Syria. Yeah well snow surprised that. He's deeply disappointed The United States had been the ally of the Syrian Kurds. It it had Provided the Air Force in the successful battle against the Islamic state had provided weapons and a trump administration officials had repeatedly told them that the US would stay until Iran was out of Syria and since he ran has no intention shen of leaving Syria. that the expectation was that the United States would be there for the long run but of course the the trouble these days with for with for foreigners foreigners who have to deal with American diplomats is that they often don't speak for the president of the United States who impulsively does other things. So you know there was great Disappointment an effort to figure out. What do we do now if they had known? This was coming They would have been in a much stronger position. Shirow to negotiate a deal with Damascus. But you know that seems to be the only plausible course. They have the Syrian. Kurds never fought against the Syrian government. Meant really. There were two separate wars in Syria. One of the Kurds against the Islamic state and then that was on the East and north of the Euphrates. Descend on the West and south. It was the government against a variety of opposition groups So there wasn't a direct conflict so some deal is possible bowl but you know the question is how much autonomy could the Kurds have. What would be the role of their security forces and you know this clearly undermined their negotiating position? The war in Syria over the last many years now has led to hundreds of thousands of deaths millions of people displaced is the situation nation for civilians at this point as desperate as ever or has. It gotten better. Do you think I think in some places. It's gotten better where the war is over offer. There is an improvement. People are not being killed. It is not a happy outcome for millions of Syrians who had hoped for the overthrow of the Assad government but even among Syrian rebels He having seen how things developed many of them regret that the whole revolution and started that because of the enormous destruction and the enormous loss of life where things have gotten worse unfortunately as for our own allies the Syrian Kurds who had created a stable area a place with a very interesting social experiment for example in all all government positions Strict gender equality between men and women so that their various legislative bodies are fifty fifty. They're co prime ministers for each of their cantons. CO-LEADERS A male and female CO leaders for the entire area and there That experiment is endanger. Couple of hundred thousand people have been displaced is from their home. Hundreds have been killed but really the continuing problem is what is Turkey do next. What is the United States going to do next at the moment? Turkish forces are in What one hundred kilometer area between Taliban and Roselyne but the main population centers are to the East and west of that on Monday where you're NPR? Reporter was commissioner the largest city. Will Turkey move into those areas. And if so the the human toll will be many multiples of what it is now or if it moves west to Kobani again you'll have much greater suffering and is Turkey taking responsibility for the thousands of Isis. His prisoners who had been Held by the Kurds in that part of Syria no The prisoners are are still under the control of the Syrian Kurds. Words and there are many of them. Particularly the the fighters are outside of the Thirty two climate zone. That Turkey is saying it wants to intervene. But the other issue is that Turkey is the country that permitted the foreign fighters to enter Syria. There are about forty thousand foreign fighters according to some estimates who had joined the Islamic state every single one of them got to Syria. Uh through Turkey and it's impossible to believe that Turkey didn't know what was going on and we we've seen the quality of the Turkish intelligence service in the Kashogi showkey affair where you know they. They were able to tell the world you know minute by minute about what happened to Jamaica. Show the Saudi journalist whose dismembered the Saudi consulate nist symbol. You can't quite believe they didn't know those forty thousand people were going to Syria to join the Islamic state. So it's hard to believe that that Turkey is serious about trying to contain or detain the very fighters that it permitted to enter Syria. I finally want to ask you Peter Galbraith. Do you think that the Kurds who have been. US allies so many times will ever trust the US again. That it's certainly difficult i. It's hard to imagine a people who have been WHO WHO's Trust has been more abused than the Kurds in the nineteen seventies Kissinger. Sure encourage the Iraqi Kurds to stage. An uprising against Saddam acquiesced in its betrayal in ninety one the first President Bush called for for an uprising. The Kurds rose up and then Bush sat on his hands as Iraq attacked and in two thousand seventeen The trump administration ration- permitted a Shia militia. Headed up by a guy named Abu Madi Hondas who had been convicted of blowing up the US embassy in Kuwait To use American Abrams. Abrams tanks against the Kurds and they city of Kirkuk and now in Syria you have the What the Kurds see and I think? Correctly as a betrayal and yet they they they continue to to deal with the United States Perhaps because they you know they don't have many other choices but certainly the level of trust is is much diminished at and finally. What's happened to the Kurds is a sign of of what happens to people who don't have have their own country in the world today? Having having your own state is a huge form of protection and of course. The Kurds are the most numerous people on the planet who don't have their own country. That is Peter Galbraith former. US Ambassador Ambassador longtime specialist on the Kurds just back from a trip to Syria. Thank you so much for joining us. Well very good talking to you and the UN's climate summit of world leaders continues today in Madrid. Spain protesters from around the world are also also rolling into town ahead of a strike. Tomorrow led by Swedish teen activist. Greta Timberg earlier this morning. Those protesters said they were concerned about carbon markets. This guy is not for. Sale policymakers at the summit are working on plans for global global carbon market under the Paris agreement. After they failed to reach a solution last year the idea is to find a way for polluting countries to buy credits from other countries that that have lowered their emissions but activists say carbon markets lack transparency and accountability and a better solution they say would be for countries to cut emissions at the source. The climate summit continues through next week and we will keep an eye on that but first let's take a look at a new trend here in the US restaurants without out diners. They're also known as ghost kitchens and they're the new delivery only operations that catered a smartphone APPs like door Dash Uber eats. NPR's is tech correspondent Shannon. Bond tells us how these mysterious restaurants are feeding the appetite for eating at home in a bright red building in Redwood City. South of San Francisco Cooks are plunging. Baskets a French fries into hot oil and wrapping lawful in pita bread. What's missing waiters waiters and customers every dishes placed in a to go box or bag who picks up the food delivery drivers they sit in a waiting room ready for the name on their order order to be called the coastal each bag of food sports? A red sticker with the logo. Go of Door Dash America's biggest restaurant delivery APP door dash manages everything here. The food is made by five restaurants that read the kitchens flawed. Hanan overseas the kitchen venture for Nash rather than having to build a physical brick and mortar store. We do that on their behalf. And then they move into our door kitchen and then overnight there live on the door dash platform of course. Many restaurants have always offered takeout and delivery but now thanks to absolute Jordache GRUB and post. Tate's there's such huge demand for eating at home the kitchen's like this are sprouting up all over dedicated to delivery customers just after living room watching Netflix men park is an investor in rooster and rice. It's a chicken chain with six locations in the bay area and door tenant people in the US spent almost twenty twenty seven billion dollars last year on food. Delivery orders placed by APP website or text message according to the NPD Group A market researcher. Well that's a small slice of the eight hundred billion dollar restaurant industry. Online delivery is growing fast and money is pouring into delivery only kitchens. They go by the variety of names. Commissary Kitchens Ghost. Kitchens virtual kitchens. Dark Kitchens Uber Cofounder Travis. Kalmyk has reportedly raised hundreds of millions of dollars ars from Saudi Arabia for his new business cloud kitchens men park says this Jordache kitchen. Let's rooster rice test new neighborhoods without committing a lot of money due to a new restaurant hiring waiters and other staff in San Francisco. It could easily costs about seven hundred and fifty million dollars For like a medium I space and you know the commissary kitchen model gets us to a a similar revenue. Demand Level A fraction of the cost so these delivery apps are transforming some established restaurants there even creating separate many as just for smartphone. APPs Uber Eats is one of the fastest growing during parts of Uber. And it knows exactly what food it's customers are searching for and knows when those searches don't turn up results so uber tells restaurants to use their existing kitchens funds to offer a whole new menu under a different name and only available through the APP. There are more than four thousand of these virtual restaurants on ubereats Jon now Selena head of ubereats in North America explains how it works. You know a bakery that actually now also runs A burger restaurants only You know only on the platform through that thing kitchen Because neighborhood and having a Burger restaurant Dora's suggests where restaurants should expand delivery and menu anyway Dems based on the millions of orders it receives. All of these suggestions helped the restaurants get a sales boost the APP companies say and some restaurants like restore and rice say those additional national sales make up for the costs associated with delivery but the restaurant industry has never been easy and the APPS. Take a big cut from those delivery. Orders Ken Ray knows that's how that works. He opened alicarte delivery in Miami in twenty seventeen. He saw a ghost kitchen and began creating menus for the APPS started off originally with which just a couple of brands I had one friend that was called which chicken pizza concept that was called Matsushita that I created a fresco Mexicano then over a ten month period yes essentially developed team restaurant brands but without name recognition it was hard to find customers and the thirty percent commission. Most APPs charged made it impossible impossible for his business to cover its expenses for restaurants. It's tough to give away that thirty percent so these guys you know the group the hoover is suppose needs to grow up you know. They've essentially built an amazing business. Built it on the back of the restaurant tour. Ray Close alicarte delivery in July. He's still believes that people have a big appetite for delivery but it needs to be palatable for restaurants to Shannon Bond. NPR News San Francisco. I have an appetite right now.

Also Everybody welcome to this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why and Chris Horwood not by Greg, Crone Gregory. How are you Chris Wonderful, absolutely wonderful. I'm glad to hear that I'm glad to hear that it's A. It's time for the website. We've launched a bunch of new shows this week. The most notable of which is people's for the people, a true crime show Centering around a woman named Heidi Allen I, she was. An eighteen year old abducted in nineteen, ninety four, and has never been seen again where through three episodes and fingers crossed. We've been on the charts throughout and I'll tell you what it's weird because you know. We have a lot of shows and a Lotta shows are on their various charts but I've never been prouder of the show for getting on the charts getting on the true crime charts for some reason. I think it's because it's out of the wheelhouse. You know what I mean. It's something that's that we're not used to so from from a sports perspective. So it's cool to see us. moving around to two other options. Basically, we're conquering. The world were only people's for the people on the charts right now in the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and Ireland so. Keep that up ladies and gentlemen, but that is A. It's not the only big show. We have super excited about a lot of the other ones. I say as I look for the the listing. Oh, that I wrote out here To good football shows Ryan. has done numerous shows for the network has another one fantasy football ALMANAC so check that out as well as a show called between the pylons. We've got a couple of actors making their way over the network this week. Including the most, the most famous would be Eric Milligan. Who Played Zack addy on bones. He doesn't NBA show along with the gentleman from Blazers. Land called around the NBA with Chris. Chris and Eric I am not the Tischler Chris We've got a young lady who has been in a bunch of stuff, and is a frequent guest on the MLB network and Ellen dare. She's doing a show along with her husband. Eric will take me into the ballgame where they breakdown baseball movies. Rising Youtube Star Alaba is doing a basketball show talking about basketball movies called nothing but net. And And we've got A. WE'VE got a sighting. Culture show called squeamish words, basically people having conversations about uncomfortable topics and And Melby veteran Brian Johnson returns for more preacher in the catcher and this time there's video I mean. We are diversifying like you read about Chris like your read about plenty plenty more coming to. We've got at least three more big shows in the pipeline I. Want to add some more true crime and. We shall see, but it's. It's fun, but it's also a lot of work. Gregory end our I. Just WanNa. Be sitting around watching sports all day. Now well pretty soon. You'RE GONNA. Have that opportunity from the looks of it? Fingers crossed. Fingers crossed right now we have I guess the unofficial countdown right now. Major League Baseball returns in eight days, the NBA officially in fifteen, though scrimmages and nine NHL in seventeen days the NFL kicks off week one fifty six days. I have no idea what the preseason is going to look like if there is one. and. I. Don't NCA sports I just have giant question mark year because I don't think they're going to get played. Yeah I mean those are those are the toughest ones because of the amateur stuff. Nobody's getting paid. Except for the schools and schools want their money, so we'll see what happens. That's true, but I i. mean you know even the stuff? We've seen so far? A handful of handful of conferences of. announced. They're gonNA. move their stuff to the spring that creates some logistical nightmares. Couple of schools have just said Hey. We're not GONNA have intercollegiate athletics this year and we will see, but we do know that a handful of conferences including the PAC. Twelve have announced all they're gonNA. Have is interconference games. There's GonNa to be out of conference games, which means the game that I was looking forward to most this season is already canceled. That was trae. Lance North Dakota taking on Oregon real early on. Yeah I mean it's. What were you drinking? took a SIP water. going. You got me. It is. It is going to be interesting to see. How they're going play that out given honestly like. If you look at it from a from a perspective of art, so you're gonNA play Divisional Games or conference games whatever you call it maybe. What's the difference? What's the difference between playing a conference game versus a non conference game is because people are coming from different areas of the country's biggest I think they're trying to. Travel. I Yeah I. I hear you. Most of these football wise don't think fly chartered planes for the most part I mean obviously lower levels. They probably don't, but I would have to imagine that that a lot of these bigger programs like you talk about a Texas Lsu game. It was moved to happen. I would imagine the Texas has their own charter charter services that they use. They're not traveling with the general public traveling with the team. That's that's where it gets a little bit concerning to me, mom, it's a huge bummer to see that happen, but I mean. Honestly if we get conference games, I'll be happy. You know what I mean like I. I don't have a great outlook when it comes to sports. So. Conference Games are literally better than anything. You know what I mean Yeah I. Get where you're coming from I. Just it's such a difficult tightrope to walk the season with everything that's going on, and you know if these conferences are serious about pushing their sports into the spring, then you run into a whole nother problem where the NFL draft could theoretically be going on while college football, still being played, and that means you can guarantee that there are two hundred and fifty guys who will not be playing college football, after April twenty eighth, or whatever it is, if you could talk about the ultimate crapshoot if somebody does, get drafted and decides, they want to keep playing no shame. I understand that you. You would say that. That's not always a guarantee. You know what I mean. I. Guess I got maybe as weird as an. Anesthetic seems to. when you think about this like it might be like the second and third round picks. That are willing to play because look, your first round picks big money. They're not gonNA play. Of course. Your Fourth Fifth Sixth Seventh Round picks these guys fighting roster spots. They're not going to risk their professional future by getting hurt in a tearing their Achilles in a bowl game or not, even not even a bowl game. Honestly it could just be week eleven. It can be a real. It could be a real problem, and it's going to throw a major wrench in everything, and that's kind of where we we've talked you know. Week after week after week about this kind of stuff it's. It's almost you have to wait and see what's going to happen like think things seem to be so fluid with almost everything. You're seeing like you have going on as we speak right fight, island is. Number two tonight. And even there like a guy just fought, and when he arrived in Abu Dhabi, they all got tested his whole team. Of His cornermen, all three of them are positive for corona virus. When he was tested, he had a false positive tested multiple times after it turns out. He didn't have it, but all three of his corner. Guys had it, so we had to fight without corner. Guys like it's bizarre. But the UFC's done a great job playing it by ear. You have to hope that college football can figure out a way to do the same thing. And then you move into the the the spring status of it. Let's hope at that point. They're not worried about it. And then the whole land ship, the whole landscape just changes. If it runs into the draft year and I mean that doesn't even factor in I. Don't know if you read the Bruce Feldman article, but there's a lot of guys in college while right now already saying. Even if play I I don't think I'm GONNA. Play well again. It goes back to the conversation that we had last week. Where it's, it's. It's a personal decision. It's a personal decision that guys are GonNa make. Sure man you don't have to play. It's not a force you to play situation, or at least it shouldn't be right. Obviously toxic masculinity Gregor. This isn't this isn't a perfect world. Where everyone's decisions are respected on every single subject, so it's it's kind of one of those things where. Any player should have the right to say no. Listen like I value my own personal stuff whether it's health or future. More than value playing in these eleven or twelve games or eight games, whatever it's going to be from conference standpoint, and it's not worth it, and could it hurt my if I'm a potential NFL draft pick could hurt my stock shore, but I may have a lot of good film like there's there's so many factors that play into it that it's hard for me to criticize any sort of college athlete. WHO's not out there? Making money was not out there. You know profiting from their likeness at least not yet, but you know it would be hard for me to get out there and go go play represent. The university gets. That's BS. Didn't get into Toledo for your education. Go play football yeah. It's weird and it's also GONNA make next year's NFL draft back. The biggest crapshoot NFL draft that we've had in decades, because just think about how much better and how you know in some cases how much we learn geyser overrated, but how much better guys get from one season to another if we go back. I don't know what. Sixteen months ago, we'd be talking about Joe Borough as maybe he gets picked in the seventh round. And you know obviously. We just saw him be the first overall pick in the draft about three months ago. So. The one thing I. It will definitely lead to next year's draft. Being considered a weaker draft now the reality is we really don't know, but it's going to be considered a weaker draft because we're not gonNA. Have this season for guys to break out and come out of nowhere to escalate into this first couple of rounds. Yeah Yeah I mean one season makes the difference for a lot of these guys. And those ones seasons are times, boom or bust guy is if we if you look back at it, guys with one year of production. They don't always pan out the best in the NFL draft, and let's be honest scouts GM's. These guys make mistakes with all the all I all the information. They can possibly have in front of them now you're giving them a lot more distance potentially between last. Last, actually seeing these guys play football, legitimate football, and like it's GonNa be. It's literally going to be blindfolded shooting darts like that's something. That's just GonNa be what it is, and it's going to be very strange. Yes, it's going to be weird. I would think that if college sports are played this year, you probably have to give guys an option to not play and maintain a year. Year of eligibility and that's GONNA create problems next year. Because now you have another class of high school kids coming in. Yeah, but they didn't do that. For the Spring Sports for a lot of athletes like I think a lot of a lot of schools chosen not to give that year of eligibility and keep guys in. Let guys who were seniors. Go and I think you'll see a lot if If they do that. There's going to be a hefty amount of traffic on that that transfer portal well, and that's the other. Really interesting element of all of this is. If some schools play in some schools, don't then. Is it essentially just college football free agency, all of the players from all of the schools that are not playing college football this year. You have to let them transfer ramification. I was thinking about that when I think it was last week late last week. The Ivy League decided. That they were not gonNa play the false sports right and the first thing that came to mind I was like and granted obviously Ivy Leagues a tear down or whatever you want to say, but those guys are still very good football players. There's no doubt. But, my first thought was I would probably try to leave if I was someone who potentially thought I had a shot at doing something and have the right opportunity came across. There's no way I wouldn't look to transfer. I was playing in the Ivy League where I'm not getting scholarship anyway. You know that that's not the Ivy League draw isn't there are scholarships in that world? It's it's something that is you know you're going to the school to get that education. You also happen to be an athlete, right? That's exactly right, and that's the counterpoint I was gonNA make to this. Is that such an interesting position because you're really betting on yourself? Because let's say, let's say a guy goes from. Goes from Penn or Harvard or Yale wherever to now Penn State No, no, no offense to any penn state. Or Ohio state or some more like that, you better be awfully sure that you're going to be able to play to a level where you can potentially advance in professional football, because otherwise you're trading a very valuable degree for a less valuable degree. Sure absolutely and again this is it really seems like we always have to. It always circles back to betting on yourself in in a lot of these situations when it comes to the corona virus, stuff and playing, and not playing like to make that move and go from from a where you're guaranteed starter. You're going to have a lotta tape the the prestigious. Draw from a non athletic standpoint to have a degree from one of those Ivy League. Schools like Cornell can't not mentioned it. Tied to bring it up. But those things. Yeah exactly that's what it is. Nothing will ever be more bizarre side tangent. Nothing will ever be more bizarre than You know the the episode where Dwight applies to Harvard Cornell Not Harvard. Dwight Dwight applies him in Andy going back and forth and they mentioned They mentioned the quarterback of the football. Team That quarterback of the football team is currently married to one of alleys, former teammates and former roommates. And I've met that guy and it is. It's just the funny to be watching the show. Live and hear that name said and go. I know that guy one of the funniest funniest things I've ever been a part of but regardless. I. Can I correct this real quick I? Believe that is isn't interest white wearing the sweater it does he actually apply? I believe he applies in Andy Does the interview for him. They have gone back and forth they have the whole back and forth for a Dwight's GonNa. Review, the interviewer four Cornell and it's it's a whole back and forth but regardless. Very funny very very funny. The whole don't shows hilarious. Guys have checked it out yet, but the emphasis on. Actually it. Yeah, there's a lot of there's a lot of weird retro content, and this is a complete track. From where we where we still have a with till sports, come back, get it really well. The amount of retro content going back and forth like in revisiting these by legitimate people like. That were on the shows is is pretty crazy now and I wonder if that's where the sort of podcasts world is moving to where it's moving. It's a lot less of two guys in their basement. Which I'm not in my basement, and I think you are either, but. But it's moving away from that stigma to a like there's real money in this and we're getting real legitimate like. People doing these on a regular basis and I think we saw that transition, but now it feels like especially during this four month span that stuff's just popping up left and right. From from pretty major players in and I hope it goes. Well Listen I. I am right there with you. But, it's just it's just a weird. It's a weird step. It's almost like it's been like legitimized somehow. I. As as the person who runs the network I have to fill out. Paperwork insurance paperwork for five different people. That is nuts. I know it's. Bizarre world we live in just from the people on our network You're absolutely right. It's crazy. There is a lot of it. I think the like reviewing of your own show is gotten really popular to you know. We had I Bradley Whitford for the West Wing and then now very famously Jenna Fisher and Angelo I don't egg Angela Kinsey are doing for the office. Which I knew who I need to find somebody to do it for Parson. Record thirty rock who is coming to do it on the underdog I? Mean I'm sure you can find somebody. There's gotTa. Be Option. Pair up to. Let's get them on the phone I. Mean Even even the scrubs one you scroll. Like that's, that's the two main stars of the show Donald. Phase on and Zach, braff like that's those guys are legitimate like dumb phase on. It's been like ninety different things. clueless us in remember the titans, thousands of thousands of things that I can think of my head and he's doing a. Twice weekly podcast it's crazy to think and then going back and recapping some of that stuff and I think we're gonNA see more and more of that and I think the style J. factor is a part of it like. I think there's soprano stuff, etc, but like. Is there a surprise? Why didn't It's. It's Bobby and Christopher Michael Imperial Ian Steve. Sherpa are the guys that are that are are hosting it and. Full disclosure I've never really seen a ton of the Sopranos but. I obviously know enough about it from pop culture, but like that's something that I think people really. Dig Deep into. But, I've listened like Fan recaps of shows I listened to like, and it's interesting to see that it went from like two really big fans. Going episode by episode shows to now it's like no, no, no I was in the show. The Star, yes. That's bizarre. It's a bizarre. It's a bizarre transition that I. don't necessarily think I saw coming well. It's an interesting thing because for for Brandon phase on and Fisher and Kinsey, I feel like it gives them an opportunity to catch up when they wouldn't necessarily have a reason to be talking anyway, so I think that's it's good for them. Just for their relationships, but yeah, no, so look forward to, and this is not legally binding anyway distress. Look look forward to Alec Baldwin and Tina Fish Show on the network next week I. Mean Listen. Figure it out well we can. We can get it setup. Yeah, who would? Who would be the realist? Did you watch thirty rock. I've checked in. I wonder who would be realistic. Who we get Tracy. Morgan's not going to do it. We get like. What's a what's this? Is this is this is Oh God? Oh. I like Jack mcbrayer. That was going to say Jack, mcbrayer Judah Friedlander Judah. Friedlander was the other name. That would be fun. Yeah, you get a pretty good comedic perspective from Judah Friedlander and then obviously you have mcbrayer who's been around from enacting standpoint there and then in other stuff like that would be. That'd be an interesting combination, and then as somebody who's never like have never deep dove into the thirty rock world. Probably probably should. It's one of those like. I would follow along with something like that I would actually do that and I would watch it one by one and get their insight in it, despite not necessarily having. Know a big historical look. It's not nostalgic for me because I didn't watch thirty rock religiously did for the officer I did for scrubs. Or even lost for example like the. I think one of the Oh. Gee, like podcast. Shows, that were or there was about a television show like loss sort of launched that there was there were so many different options to listen to theories to learn like. A, in Philly itself President Steve The morning. Drive guys for Emma more like every Thursday. Morning. They would have lost recap, and it would be on their podcast. ETC, and there was fan podcasts as well outside of like actual guys were getting paid like a paid entertainers like. The one that comes to mind were guys and I don't even think I. don't even know if they do podcasting anymore. jae-in, Jacks laud loss podcasts listen to it every week every week. It was something that was super interesting. They break everything down and it was. That was sort of the beginning. In now it's move to. More crazy. Who would be your? Who would be your picks for a loss podcast? WHO's hosting because I've got a very clear to. Who Do you think though? And I feel a little sexist because I keep picking is. Well. I think. I think from a loss perspective. If we could get like. Hurley I would me is one of my two. Yeah, he would be one and then the second one. I know you would never get him because I. Just think he. Played Ben would be interesting, because yeah, because then you're getting both dynamics of look, the actual characters on the show like Hurley, being one of the lost people, and then you get Michael Emerson, who was one of the others the others essentially and getting those two and sort of like I mean Emerson's been around and been in a lot of different things hurley not. Not so much, but you know what I mean like you get again. It's two different worlds coming together to break down a show that was so intricate and insane, but who were your to okay? I two different combinations here. I've got a WHO I would. Who I would go for and who I would we really want? Let's hope that this never comes up because. I don't have to go get the first two or he. Garcia's obvious Hurley's got to be one of the people. He's funny in real life in episode I believe so he's got. The other person. I would go for Josh Holloway 'cause He. He's a good dude. He's funny and interviews and he's never really had that big break when I think people thought he was going to have that big break, but the person I would want is Garcia and dominic more hand because I think nominate. Moynahan is hilarious that is that is a really good one and I didn't even think of that. I can't believe Charlie. Left my brain I thought Holloway for a second mainly because I heard him recently in an interview about that new show yellowstone. Apparently he's in it with. Kevin. Costner who it is not, spacey. But? Yes, so he did have that sort of outgoing personality in that interview, and like it was A. Standard Radio Review nothing crazy, but it sounds like he would be a guy who could really keep the conversation, fun and entertaining, which would be which would definitely be something something I could get get behind. Moynihan's awesome I. Don't know if you've watched any of the The reunited together on Youtube the Josh Gad thing where he gets like the casts of old old movies together was like it started with like back to the future and ghostbusters and there's a lot of like super big movies Ferris Bueller stay office another one. But Owen and splash. It's weird seeing Tom Hanks and setting. But one of them was Lord of the Rings, and this was yeah. I, don't like Lord of the Rings. I don't think it's never seen. It's yeah, it's it's not really for me, but all of a sudden you know you're you're on this and the whole premise is like you know it's. It's zoom. Call were just to get you. Get everybody on that you. You can and all of a sudden. You know it's. It's Sean, Astin and then Oh, there's Elijah Wood and then. Oh, there's sorry in mckellen and oh. There's Orlando Bloom and there's Dominic Moynahan and there's billy poet, and there Sean Bean and there's Dominic Cooper and it's it's live. Tyler was in it as well plus Oh. Hey, there's Peter, Jackson that guy. So it was super cool to see all of them, and really fun and hand was just he was awesome. Just he is, he is such a good personality. I don't know that I necessarily would rely on him. He doesn't strike me as a rely on you kinda guy. But I think that's an like super interesting person. Yeah, I mean I've. I definitely think that would be. The certainly interesting I have to check out that series that her a couple of different people mentioned it, and even not being Lord of the Rings Guy I would still check it out. You would like it. Just to see, just see the actor. Viggo Mortenson on there and Jonathan Rice Day, these on there and Oh and What's his name? the the now directing deadpool. The Silk Road the the Mo Kappa super famous Mo cap. Guy Andy circuits now. Okay Andy. Circus is another one who was just awesome entity. It's really fun, and you can like I thought it was interesting to see like who liked to, and who didn't in these in these shows. Because you know you go back to lay fares bueller. Stay off and they talk about how you know. They haven't seen each other. Since that movie and I get the impression that. You know they weren't all the closest friends during the filming, but like this is a group that just clearly loves each other, so it's fun to see that stuff and this series I would I wanNA character way to go check out reunited together on Youtube, and they do it for charity, so if you can should donate some of the great causes and. That's the show for this. I mean I. Do I do I do find that super interesting though like? The quarantine stuff. Being at home has led bigger names like you mentioned Tom Hanks in that, and it's like what like that. That's not a guy that I would ever picture like taking the time or not necessarily taking the time, but. Having, some time almost choked on spit. Charm having having the time. To do something like that. It's it's. It's interesting to see like who's been available to do things while this is all been been kinda going on, and hopefully at some point coming to an end. Yeah, well, it wasn't you know it's also you know he's sitting there. And it was the shortest one point that out, but it was only about a half hour, but you know he's there with Ron Howard Daryl Hannah and Brian Grazer some absolutely just legends in the field you know. The goonies was another one Sean Astin Josh Brolin. Feldman, was there I think he was but. It was joey. Pants was on that I believe. Yeah it's. It's fun. Even if you don't like the movies, it's worth watching. You're absolutely right, though just talking a little little behind the curtain stuff. The people who are available right now or just completely different than who you can get when sports are going on, we had a run on sports with friends where it was. You know I Eagle Kenny Albert to honor a guy who owns a minor league baseball team Ruko Tj Quinn jared diamond, just like giant giant giant to you could never get like you couldn't get Kenny Albert Orion to sit down otherwise because you're busy. Yeah, there's always I mean. Those are guys that call multiple sports that are always out. Doing their next live event or doing it for radio or TV whatever it is I mean I. Think Kenny Albert's like the home. The home voice for the Rangers like The New York Rangers and I mean that's like, plus he has national gigs like it's. There'd be almost no way that they would have or be able to have the time but now. It's been such a weird world that it's given everybody sort of that opportunity to kind of slow down a little bit, and and get a little more in depth than I think that's one of the cool things about having those guys on shows in the underdog network. You're getting. More by them. We're talking about Tom. Hanks right, of course, obviously, if only I thought I was pretty sure I thought we were going to keep it. Under wraps that we were GONNA have Tom Hanks on next week for the return of sports but I. Guess we just blew that cover. You know we had to bump him a couple of weeks ago because we didn't have time to get him on so. We had a great in-depth conversation about Tony Hawk Pro Skater. Coming back to we had to pushing back a couple of weeks. He couldn't contribute, so was out it was that simple I said Tommy Tony Hawk Fan he said Tony How question mark. I said maybe next time PAL. Keep working. This might you might make something yourself? Stringing together. Dark slide into Christ air into a nine hundred. He was filming Castaway, so he didn't really really get the. The whole Tony Hawk phenomenon feel castaway. It's a good movie I mean I don't know if I've ever really revisited re. I am struggling. Say creating getting up at five am is an interesting an interesting thing to do on a consistent basis. Correctly. Feel like I did. but no I don't think ever gone back and revisited the movie since that first initial wash so. I mean I definitely enjoyed it but I. don't know how re watchable something like that is. Yeah, it's it's a little bit longer than you think it is too. And it's a lot of good Tommy on the on the island with Wilson and not a ton going on what is What's your number? One Tom Hanks movie of all time? Who? lot of contenders right? Yeah. There's a ton and even if you'd like obviously, you have your saving private. Ryan Morris Gump's etcetera. A big fan of the burbs now. The Birds Eilly. Yeah! It's a good movie that I that I. Don't think it's enough credit to be perfectly honest. Little Corey Feldman action in their hell. Yeah. Trying to think. Let me throw some match. A rolling stone article of every Tom Hanks. Movie rated worst best. Could you guess? which came in? At number fifty three. Hole. Is worst film. Although I can't believe he's only been in fifty three movies. That doesn't feel right now. It doesn't feel right at all. My question would be. Is this going to be like some weird hipster answer and it's like it's like Oh angels and demons is by the way angels and demons was better than the first one I. Sure I never seen either of them, so it's. It's more the point of like people just like to hate on stuff like that I will give you. I'll give you a hint. He played. A foreigner in this film. I'll even felt terminal. It is in fact, the terminal number fifty, three, playing an Iranian traveler stuck in a Parisian, airport. By the way. Angels! Demons comes into fifty two. What's of course, that's what I mean. The terminals just castaway in an airport. Pretty much. What is Some other notables extremely loud and incredibly close fifty year. You know what actually? Angels Demons was the first one. I'm confusing. Them I liked inferno more than angels and demons. The circle with Emma Watson End. Karen Gillan, which was not good, is forty eight, the great who can forget his turn and dragnet cloud. My God cloud atlas was one of the hardest movies I've ever had to sit through I never I wouldn't have washed my own I was in Ohio. Alexis father was watching it I had a I had just gotten off of a red I. I had not slept in probably forty hours, and he turns cloud out little and Azi Yikes. I'm just trying so hard not to fall asleep in the chair. It's a terrible movie. crown forty three. The lady killers which I think is that bad is. That one is not that big. It's. Kind of fun. It's something that used to be on like HBO randomly like all the time I think I've seen it like four or five times, and it's really not that bad of a movie. DAVINCI CODE COMES IN AT thirty eight I. Don't know what a Hologram for King is, but that was the two thousand sixteen film that comes into thirty seven. The Great Buck Howard was terrible. That's at thirty six. The money pit was fun getting back to the older, Tom. How rather the overtime makes films. The younger Tom Hanks thirty-five. Green Mile thirty four. That's criminally low. That's again. polar express should honestly not even make the list because it was so terrifying. Your your pick. The burbs comes in a thirty one volunteers with John Candy twenty nine Toy story four. Wow, toy story four comes in at twenty seven. Can I ask a question who can tour story for just just to make adults cry like is that? Is that the goal reas who is the? I mean we have an exclusive rule in this household them when when felicity found toy story. That? We legitimately only watch one and two three chat in on three. We've checked in on a couple of times. Says not the biggest fan of it. Four four. We watched once, and that'll never get played again in my house like it's legitimately just sad. It's a sad movie. Like what are we doing? It is and you know there's going to be more. You know who's going to be more. There's no. No getting around it, I would've thought like. Oh, they're making a fourth movie. This is just a money. Grab right they. They completed the trilogy. It made sense and they're going to. They can't possibly add to it. It was great it was tear jerking. Yeah, it was it was so good. It was way better than the fourth movie. An animated series should be like kung-fu Panda. Four can't possibly be that good. Man if you've never seen Aladdin three. Whatever I can't remember the name of it, there actually are legitimately some like funny genie moments in that movie from I mean I haven't seen it and. I don't know twenty five years twenty years at this point. But it's like there are some funny genie moments that I can remember but outside of that. There's a reason why a lot of animated vha animated movies went straight to VHS back in the day tweet story again twitter for a bad movie like you said, but just I mean it is just off like it's just once. You'd be sad about what's going on in the world of the toys. Number Twenty six. I would not have guessed this, but I guess he did have a role in it. Is The simpsons movie? Number Twenty, five. You Got Mail twenty-three. That thing you do. That's movie I liked quite a bit. We talked about live tyler earlier on. Excellent excellent song come from I'll still put wanders. Still put that song on. All the time, just kind of walking around the house or doing stuff yard work. How about? Someone Song of that movie. And killed it. It's all you need it. You're doing that thing you do, Greg. Number. Twenty two is road to perdition. That's not fun movie either is twenty one which is deposed, turner and hooch. Great movie is twenty. The original toy story nineteen bridge of spies eighteen feels high to me. Toy story two seventeen a beautiful day. Okay, did you see a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood? where he plays Mr Rogers I have not seen it. It is something I mean Weird Man Matthew Rise Matthew Rise that might just be his full name. The guy from the Americans he is, he is in it as well. It's really he's really He being Tom Hanks and Mr. Rogers is kind of an ancillary character. He's kind of. He's kind of like a secondary character in the movie. Which is not what the marketing material would make you think. But it was. It was fine like it was It's not like I wouldn't be angry about watching it, but I don't need to see it again. Charlie Wilson's war. Toy Story three at fourteen Joe. Versus, the volcano, great movie number Thirteen Saving Private Ryan Twelve League of their own eleven. I'M GONNA turns people off your say. I think it's a little overrated. Forest castaways nine. Catch me if you can. With Leo is eight Captain Phillips another movie I. Think is mildly overrated. number seven Philadelphia. Six splash five sleepless in Seattle is four to one of my favorite You would call them girl movies. solely is three. That feels very high. Biggest to and Apollo thirteen number one. Yeah, I mean Apollo. Thirteen is one of those iconic roles and the not surprised. That's number one. What's what's number one for you though? I mean. I still I still think. I think I'd have to go between between saving. Private Ryan We story. One, I think it's the better of the the movies and I know it's animated but I. Still Think I'm with you, would he would? He does a great job in that in that movie. And I mean honestly probably probably Apollo. Thirteen like those are the three. That really kind of. You know. Stand out to me, but I'd have to. I'd have to say the best one is is saving private Ryan. The. From from a war movie standpoint, it's one of those iconic movies I mean I. Know It's like a thousand hours long, still great. Yes, still like it still keeps you involved. He's Grayton it all the way up until the like. It's a really really solid movie. It's a great performance I. I think that's got to be number. One and saving private Ryan does a great job of like every fifteen minutes. Another super interesting actor shows up. Yeah exactly and the I'm totally into that. Who Can forget? The The star turn by one Vincent Diesel in that. Absolutely sizemore Eddie, Burns, Rabih season. That obviously Matt Damon Ted Danson Giamatti Dennis Farina. It's just that's. Hooman, how'd you did vary pepper Perry barrier. Pepper very peppers best role outside of playing Roger, Marris, and sixty one, or as one of my good buddies once called at sixty one star. Very very he. He read the Asterix in the title as star, which is a very interesting way to say the name of a movie help. You're not for us. We are. It's very funny. Barry Pepper knock around, guys, criminally underrated movie Barry Pepper Vin Diesel Seth Green. Just Like a weird. Pseudo mob movie. Yeah, but just just excellent John. Malkovich in it, if I remember how about how about Vinnie diesel and Rabin boiler room. I love boiler rooms. Where my favorite not good movies. Yeah, absolutely one hundred is Malkovich. Anders Malkovich weird career I was watching like he's in space forcing. That's just I would prefer wasn't made. Not Nothing nothing is weirder movie than being John. Malkovich attention really sure I get it? It's just bizarre. It's bizarre. It's a bizarre movie talking about war movies. Where where did you stand on? Did you see nineteen seventeen? I did not of course I. don't see a lot of pop culture new movies, I watch a lot of I I just I just rotate the classics finally. loggins sure, I do I fixed my old laptop which it got damaged in the last move to this house and by damaged. And the move I mean it was in the third bedroom before we cleared it out for a very long time, it fell off of something in the damage, the hard drive, so I had to wipe it. and I finally got back to dig into my DVD's and playing them while I play video games on my laptop. Because, the other laptop I have doesn't have a disk drive so I've been I've been in heavy rotation of just old classic movies that that I love like Lib legitimately the last like. you know I've watched like barely watch dirty work. I watched the saving Silverman dumb and dumber Friday. This is stuff I. Go back and watch. Watch any of this new this new stuff. They don't even like the newest movies I watch like Super Bad and pineapple express like those are the newest movie that I. Watched a decade plus we saw Pineapple Express together ironically. Yeah, I believe. It was. Third Person who I won't name and We once did a podcast with him and. That was movie where I I will remember this for the rest of my life. There's like a throwaway line near the end of the movie, and it's about like while like you guys like this. Look, you guys must have a great era, Gatien system and I started laughing hysterically in the theater I was the only person in a fairly packed theater. WHO started laughing? And I will for the rest of my life think it was funny. I mean. Yeah it. It's hilarious. It's it's a sterile line. Ever just people just looking at me, but that's all right you. You have my Argan in. Though you can, you can check out the I won't not gonNA mentioned service, because it may or may not be legal It's not, but that's I'll tell you one other person has that and I went on the other day. and it let's let's say that it rhymes with boo. On the other day, and I was looking at my my Boudou account, and the recently played movies and I was like. Who the hell was watching the first hunger game? If I'm sure I have it somewhere. But. My wife would be somebody who watch it though she loves. The hunger game movies, I I was a fan until series started to be terrible, but. That was my big problem with it. Is it ended horribly? Excuse me. I think for me. We started off listening to those on tape which this like? We had physical disks that I hadn't seen. In the in the cars I would drive into work in center city Way Way way back the Delaware. but we would. We would listen to them and then just like. When we knew they were gonNA. Get moving the movie. Sorry I had a cough didn't want to do it in the microphone. I know. When we knew they were going to get into movies were so excited. And then you wash the first one and you're like aw, sick, and then they do the thing that ruins all movies and they a trilogy movies, especially and series that are books and things like that I, know! There's so much information that they have to jam into these movies. They do the weird split thing I hate the split thirds the third one. It's it's Raj garbage because the first movie is just worthless well, that's true, but the I okay. My issue with that series and I didn't expect to be talking about hunger games, but here we are. First movie was I thought it was very good. The second movie was also the first movie just not as good. A it was basically just exactly the first movie all over again with a couple of different twists, and then the third movie get super. Weird and I I've all three of the books I think I had no interest in reading the another prequel that just came out about Cornelius snow, having to mentor someone from district whatever. and I don't want to have empathy Cornelius. Know that guy's a jackass. Yeah, exactly well. What's the problem? What's the problem with prequels in general like? You. Don't you want I don't I? Don't need to see the simplest. The sympathetic side that eventually turned him bed. It's the reason why the original Star Wars. prequels were bad I. Don't I don't care about the origins of Darth vader and especially the way they did it like. Don't make me feel bad for the guy that eventually becomes the superior bad guy in the galaxy, like not not a planet, not a country now. This guy is the worst guy in the galaxy, and you want me to feel bad for him because he grew up in a weird situation and had to race pods for. His freedom, basically best bad guy in the history of of pop culture. DARTH vader. Absolutely I thought you were talking about Oiseaux the. Yeah! To begin, we don't talk enough about Oiseaux as one of the great. The Great Enemies the great benefits and all the film How'd you feel about the most recent star wars. Well, let's summarize these. I went to see what was the newest the first newest one episode seven F, basically, the remake of new hope just updated characters. I went to see in the movies we had a seven am. Screening I tried to do was the only available time this last. This was the late notice sort of thing. It wasn't like we're giant fans. We have to be the first to see it i. do like the original trail. The force awakens by the way the Yes. I did this really cool thing where I was like. I'm GonNa Watch all the Star Wars Movies Dryer I'm going to start with episode. One prequels will go prequels into the next trilogy, and we'll dive right in to episode seven in the theater now in theory when I thought of that I had like a two week runway. I left it to like the last day and a half. To start episode one so I. Get the episode one. Now, it's like. Ten o'clock at night, so they're not even close to getting these all done on time, but let me just just try this. I go to bed at like four o'clock in the morning. I, wake up at like six o'clock in the morning. Drive Delaware County because I'm going to see it with my cousin and my brother. We get to the movie theater. We turn it on, or the movie turns on I fall asleep roughly five minutes into the movie and I wake up at the ending credits so i. missed everything there major things that happen that movie and I know it's like three years old, but I won't spoil it five subtle. Sure Even better someone dies in that movie. Dies in that movie I didn't know that for several months later. Because I fell asleep and then I just never saw the next to have tried to watch it force awakened since like my wife has been like. Let's like she wanted to get into it. Let's watch it. Let's watch. We'll go back and watch the Star Wars. We put the Force Awakens on. I was asleep on the couch in my old house in under fifteen minutes. I don't know what it is. I can't get through that movie. I don't know why I can't explain it. The first one I could probably explain there. I didn't get any sleep center, but outside I just I don't. It doesn't grab me like the original ones. Do you know what I mean? And maybe it's because I saw the original ones in-theatre like when they re released them. Do you remember that I do? Yeah I do. Like my dad took us to go. See them and might believe me. My Dad's not some Big Star Wars Guy. He just they were releasing him. He's a gale. It's we'll. We'll see them all in theaters when they did that, that was really cool. That experience was awesome like you can see. People love those characters Yada Yada Yada even as a young kid seeing those initially, that was really cool, but like these just. It's it's almost like the overproduction. Almost ruins it does that is that does that make sense what you're saying? I was at. I was at the midnight premiere for Episode Four. I think I'm not I'm not really a star Wars Fan, but you know it was. It was I mean I guess now it would would have been episode one the Phantom Menace. Sorry, the fourth film in the series and I. I'm not a Big Star Wars Fan, but I went with my friends and. I saw them. It's it's fine. I watched the I watched. Force Awakens I. It does this is okay. I was kind of tell you what I was kind of excited got rogue one because I thought the pre. They did a really good job in the trailers I. Thought Felicity Jones was interesting. A lot of people don't know this, but your first born is named after her and. and. It just wasn't very good. Then I was like a solo. That's interesting. Donald Glover I wanna see this, and then I just never did and I. Don't think I saw I. I may have turned on the last Jedi at some point, but haven't really watched it and I don't think I've seen the second of Roger Skywalker. Though I do know what happens. Yeah! I mean it's like. I, don't I I just can't get into it. I don't know I don't know I've never seen rogue one I've never seen the solo even. Like I've heard that the I've heard good things about those offshoot ones like the non trilogy. Ones I just don't I can't. I can't Kinkembo. Maybe it's long time. Is that what it is interesting? I don't have the time to do it I'm not hearing that because you just talked about watching a dirty. Here, so I've watched. In the last two weeks I've watched like the first four full seasons of Seinfeld on DVD. When the little humble break here, but when I did when I did. Kroll is show I wanted to talk about thirty work can he just wasn't having it? It's bizarre. It's such an underrated movie like norm MacDonald Already Lang Bob Saggy directed I think yeah. Chevy, chase, like randomly in it, it's. Jack Burton Jack. Burton may be check warden I. Don't remember who plays the Dad Jack Somebody. Killington. That, when I know isn't true. but but yeah. No, it's overall just like. Clearly classic comedy so funny, so many jokes and Haitians in it right yeah and Haitian on an aunt. That right now. Yeah, we. This is original dirty work. If if people look at the apparently, there's a twenty eighteen movie called dirty work that came out. It is a drama romance film. That is not the same one as I was thinking of. I wondered why that was getting. Three out of ten stars in fill rates may also. There's a twenty twenty dirty work on IMDB. Don't know what this is attached to. That doesn't look. It's Anthony. Gordana and Robert Gordon. Maybe it's a short. I don't know but. It does not look good. Is the point that why can't I just? Where is he okay? There's the original thirty work I can find a Wikipedia, but not an to be page Also Yeah, Jack! Warden is correct. Traylor Howard. Who was in monk is in it Don rickles in it. You're right. Chevy Chase. Is a full. David Keck ner is in. Its, Gary cleanly. Yeah Adam Sandler plays Satan John. Goodman is in it. Rebecca Romaine is in it, This is the bearded lady. Please the bearded lady. This. Is it is a it is a Oh. Chris Chris Farley that guy. Oh my gosh. Forget like you forget about the man now I'm going to have I. have so many Farley movies on well all of them, except for like almost heroes, his last movie I think. I know how dare I but I've seen Beverly Hills Ninja like thirty seven times so. Shout out to my to my boy. Now. It's GonNa Bother me I. Know it by Heart Are you quoting? Yes, I'm GonNa have to find it. I got nothing. I got nothing for you here. I Will Sasso I will tell you that beverly. Hills Ninja two. Sequel was written by Mitch Club and often directed by club off and. And Kelly Santa for the film was going to beat your Hasselhoff and Lucas. Grapple Hasselhoff Hasselhoff and it began shooting scenes in South Korea in in October two, thousand, eighteen during filming. The name was changed to Dancing Ninja and released on its own. Really really. I just dropped some nine. Mean that is dancing. Just bizarre shout I finally figured it out. I remembered it by googling the great will. Sasso plays Chet Walters INC specialist in. In Beverly Hills Ninja. It's Su- such a bizarre movie. Farley's Great Farley's great great in everything. It's going to have to go back into the DVD like mine that I have and. Find all the Farley movies to watch dancing. Dancing Ninja four point two stars out of ten by them. I mean listen I. Feel like that's probably criminally overrated. Think you're right. This is why I love what to I was GonNa say this is why I love the show. All this all this random stuff just comes up we we sort of get off on the well. Eventually. We'll get back to sports once sports returns next week. But. Reminds me of so many different things that I totally forgot about which is Great Chet Walters specialists might be one of the most random things I think. We've ever talked about on the show. I don't know you talked about that. Disney, show, you really liked the other. Guy. THAT'S NOT RANDOM CHAT WALTERS INC. specialist is a random character that literally like two people listening to this who I personally know. Shutout said Carl those are the. Folks! That Chris is not GonNa like that I'm GonNa. Tell you now. But there's only two people that would actually know. Chat Walters off the top of their head potentially, which is just hilarious to me. By the way I'm instilling a new rule where we can talk about will Sasso on the podcast I've got beef with us Aso's PR people. I know it's weird right, but it's true we were. We were supposed to have Sasso and Scott Warf on on one of our shows, because they did that. that basketball movie the Tim donaghy movie together and didn't happen and pissed me off, so there is to imagine that the Tim donaghy movie probably wasn't that great. It's a pretty stellar cast. Will Sasso and Scott Wolf? What? What could get Kirk Cameron? I know it's not. About Jesus, so Kirk Cameron's out even though I. Did Watch the first. This is gosh man. Just said I have no time, and now I'm going to say something else. I watched like the pilot episode of growing pains on the roku channel the other. Day! I spent like maybe like three months ago I, watched like the first season of the Jeff. Foxworthy the roku channel has the most random stuff on it. You could possibly imagine okay. I. Don't have the roku channel so I. Don't know what I'm missing out on. I did well if you have like. Roku TV's etc. Just like it's a random channel that gets thrown in there, and it's literally just like it's just a lot of like old stuff, but then also links you can get like HBO. Subscription right through that particular thing well I. I will tell you that I watched. An episode of Supermarket Sweep Net flicks a couple of nights ago, so I can't really complain too much about what you're watching. yeah, well, I think I. Think we all got homework. And by the way I have nothing else Scott Wolf I just think they're pr persons a piece of Shit. Right, that's nothing against us or wolf. They seem like decent human beings especially Sasso. Yeah, it's took a weird turn I do. I do WanNa just. Now I'm looking at a David Hasselhoff movies. There's movie called bailout which he didn't nineteen eighty nine that I absolutely need to know more about, but I one of. God's these so many weird David has movies anyway? The La- I do WanNa talk about once worst thing before we go. And that was the disappointing announcement by the Eagles this week La- over the weekend. Brian Baldinger teased that the eagles had a move in the wings that was going to make them quote much better in mid July. I was thinking. All Right? WHO's IT GONNA, be they they signing clowney. You know they. Trading for Joe Thune is is like. Everson Griffen and gakuen Jamal Adams and Tonio Brown who could it be any of these people? They re signed Jason Peters three-year. Pardon me one year deal three million dollars up to six. Potentially. He's GonNa. Play Right Guard now. How do you feel about it? I'm thrilled absolutely thrilled by it. At nome, not I mean this is. Jay. Forty you WANNA talk about deciding to. A wound with instead of abandoned. You just like the wound on fire. Back Open Yeah. That's kind of I feel about this. Man I love Jason Peters has been. A! Premier Eagle. For a very long time. And arguably the best left tackle in football for a very long stretch of it. It's it's over man gets. You can't get through most games without being injured I. Don't like you missed the season. What two years ago with the ACLU missed most of the season last year. You were all right, but I feel like every game. I'm getting an update from the sideline. Saying that Peters left the game with the tight quad more. You know what I mean like it's it's. It's tough man. It's tough because he is a guy who. Like. He's a whole famous exactly and he's been. He's been really really more than a solid. He's been a great. You know what I mean like. It's a bummer that this is sort of the point that we're at. Put it a certain. Put like do Matt. How many people in the NFL switch positions at one, thirty, six, thirty seven. That's not the most uncommon thing for a tackle to swing inside at the end of his career, but JP is going to be thirty eight. He did play thirteen games last year of sixteen the year before, but that's a little misleading, because like you said getting dinged up all the time before that was the seven game season than sixteen, Fourteen, sixteen sixteen. The number say he's durable. Reality is is not that hopefully he can put together a little bit of a healthy on at guard and just carry the team. You know. To the The time when we can get Brandon Brooks back God willing that happens, but I was I was a little bit excited about seeing what map prior could do. you know obviously peters is going to be better than prior, but prior played pretty well in the Seattle game, certainly much younger. So. Who knows three million dollars? If it doesn't work out at those workout? Yeah. It's just. I have so much hope for this team. Right and I have so much. Hope for this team and. It's stuff like this. That really sort of bums bums me out where I'm like I. I feel like we. We I feel like we could have found something a little bit more durable in a little bit better for for us, but you know. It is what it is I'm not GonNa you know I'm not gonNA question how how he roseman just yet I don't only couple years from the Super Bowl. I'll tell you what I would happily sign Peterson with three year ten million dollar deal if he would just agree to coach afterwards. Because I think that guy is is such an offensive mind, Jean, l., offensive line genius. And you know he's already taken up a decent role in instructing the guys especially when he was hurt, so I would love to see him. Continue on as a as offensive line coach in Philadelphia, when his playing days are over 'cause young guys alleged. Yeah absolutely one hundred percent, and that's why that's. What makes it so much harder to? To. You know, be negative about something like this. You know what I mean it's. It's very low stakes game the other thing too and. If it doesn't work out. It's three million dollars and that sucks, but the eagles have the fourth most valuable cap room right now. A lot of that needs to get rolled over because they have I think they're five million over the cap next year, and that's assuming the capitals and drop which I expect it will. So good times, but Yeah, here we are, and again we've got penn state superstar booby miles to lead the ones. Man If he actually is good. For Meat for. Both colleagues and friends one of the reasons I want him to be good. This is why you can't be outspoken about people being bad Chris. Very quickly. Takes come back to haunt you buddy now. It's I still think Tony Hunts GonNA. Turn it around. Listen I was convinced I was much younger man and I was convinced that the guy that started at the university I was currently attending was going to then star for my pro football team. TURNS OUT NOT TO CASE? To what it were. That's going to be the show for this week for Greg Croon I'm Chris Wardell. Thanks for listening. We'll see you next time.

This is collider videos award season show. For the next five months. We are going to be tracking the ups and downs the ins and outs and the surprises of award season on a weekly basis. We're making a lot of noise and we're really getting into it this week. We are tracking. We are going to predict the category of best actress now just because we're doing it this time doesn't mean we're gonna come back and we're Vive revisit this category because again, people were in, people are out. We're going to come back maybe a month from now a week from now too much. Do best actress again, the best actor again do best director again. But right now it is all about best actress of what category this is Perry. It is. There's there's a lot of names and it was a little difficult for me to push some of my outliers out of my top five. But I'm feeling pretty confident in my top five at this point in time, even though there's one in particular that I haven't seen that, I think there's some complications for that particular movie and I'm curious to see how it all shakes out, but feeling pretty good at this point. How about you, Jeff, best actress? I have no idea what's going on with this category. A big part of it is this movie the favourite which we're gonna talk about who gets placed where and who's the lead. So it's kind of throwing the off. I, I would say I have fifteen percent confidence in the names I'm about to drop right here could change. There's going to be a lot of ups and downs, and we'll be there to cover. I s we, yes, we absolutely will. Okay. Perry. So who was number one on your list? My number one. You guys probably know what my number one is. It's lady Gaga for a star is born, especially after that massive opening weekend that had had one, I think she deserves it outright. But after that big opening weekend, that's kind of the ideal combination that you need to continue the momentum all the way to nominations. And then I think even through to the actual ceremony, she's phenomenal in the movie. You're talking about the music which we already know she's just a knockout at or you're talking about her performance in her chemistry with Bradley Cooper. I think it would be a deserving nomination and between. Lean the critical praise and the fanfare after the movie's release, I think she's going to get it. She number one on your lynching number one on your list. Now she's not. She's number one on my list. I would say she's the only lock at this point. Like the only one I could absolutely put money on and be like she's getting in. I saw the movie again, this weekend. It blew me away. I just think it's so fantastic. And I know that it had the performance has its critics because the, oh, well, she's just sort of playing ourself, you know, but I didn't see that up there. I thought she was wonderful and I think she can't be denied this year. Okay. Okay. Full disclosure. She's number two on my list. Okay. So she's very, very, very, very close to the top. I'd love her in this movie. I loved the movie itself. You know, my only criticism against the film is that it didn't really surprise me. I talked about the self swear, you know it was. It was a star is born a story that's been told officially three other times that I knew where it was going, and that's where it went, and but it's still extremely well made very, very. Entertaining. The music is great. The chemistry is great, and I agree. I mean, lady Gaga she played herself, not really, but she's playing a pop star. I mean, it's not like she's pulling Shirley's Farren in monster year. No, but she's doing that, but I don't know. She wasn't. She's great. She's gonna get nominated. She's absolutely there's someone who is more deserving. There are someone who's more deserving because I think when it comes to mind, number one, this is an actress who has never won an Oscar and damn, that'll I know where you're going and wild. The movie itself might not be as commercially accessible and uplifting. Well, not maybe uplifting, but commercially acceptable as a star is born. This is an actress who is way way, way, way, way overdue for not just the nomination, but a win, and that is Glenn Close for the wife. Now this movie is about a law Mary couple. The husband played by Jonathan Pryce UIs not exactly. You know a a loyal husband and you know, it's sort of comes to a head in a climax that it, it's basically going to be her for your consideration clip when they show her and they're reading off the nominations, the night of the Oscars on February twenty. Fourth length hosts, I feel like she's not only the top and an absolute block for nomination, but I think she is the front runner to win, not just because this is a great great performance for her, but also because it's going to be one of those sort of light career Oscars, where it's go into, she's going to win. This is a good conversation. You know? Did you see that film? I haven't seen it yet. I haven't seen it either. Okay. So I did and I want to see it. I almost went to see a couple of weeks ago and I think I miss. I don't know if it's still in theaters anymore, so I hope I get the screener hookup, but that said I've been hearing about this performance for over a year, right? Because debuted at the festivals last people or if it was going to come out last year. Like I just don't know that the. Film has the traction, and I keep hearing as good as she is in the film. I keep hearing the Jonathan Pryce kind of mattress or every step of the way and coming away thinking that he's the more impressive of the two. I feel like I heard the same things about Glenn Close with Albert knobs, and I think that this year is just more competitive and. While I, she could get a nomination. I don't know that I see the win. And as of right now I have her on the outside looking in. I have earned my honorable mentions top five. He's not, but only seen the movie. She's my number two and actually thinking of it's like you made the point. And then I almost went the opposite way for different reason where I think you would just said, you know you, you could see her getting the nomination, but not the win and because it doesn't have have traction. I think that the harder thing for Glenn Close is going to be securing that nomination. And if she gets that nomination, then we're gonna wind up seeing a resurgence and the potential for a major upset because we all I mean, it happens every single year. You have a movie that pops really early. Everyone gets super psyched about it. And then the inevitable backlash creeps in with a star is born. I think that said that's a real possibility. And let's say Gaga anglin coz close get the nominations. There's a chance that that's when we can see even more. People talking about the wife and overturning the lock. You're doing something very interesting right now, which is the in phase two, which is the post nomination phase. It's anyone's game that there is. There was a massive backlash was at now. I would say one of the one of the most. I would say, notorious backlashes in recent Oscar history was against LA La Land because for from September after Venice, telluride and Toronto that movie for five straight months was the front runner to win best picture. And then after the nominations, there was a backlash, I think it was after one, seven, Golden Globes. There was a backlash to the moon, and there's a backlash coming for a star is born same as as I man, you know, Rome as kind of film I think is untouchable. He's going to be a backlash held back home of a, we'll talk about, okay, talk about that. So so Perry, you and I had the same number one and number two, they're flips, but we all greet that Gaca is into top couple number one for built our number twos or both out there on the table. But what's your number two? Mine is actually elites after for Roma. Okay. Go ahead. I. Again, I wasn't personally blown away by her, but I think that a lot of people really were, and I think that she's going to become a like a Qasr celeb- this season. And I, I think that the movie is just strong enough where she's going to get it. All right, Perry, she is my number five, she's number. I do think at this point in time she has a chance of getting in. It's a little bit on the cusp also because we haven't yet hit the point where Roma has come out and kind of wowed. The audience is, and you know, we don't really know what Netflix is even going to do with this movie. I mean, yeah, we know it's getting a Netflix released, but how wide is it really going to go? And that is key to the momentum of performance like that needs to actually breakthrough. But you know when we do these predictions, it isn't necessarily, oh, these are my favorite performances rank. These are what I think are going to get nomination. And in the case of I have to learn to say, you leads appreciate. I think that is. One of those Oscar nomination narratives that are just very appealing where the excitement of a newcomer breaking through. And that's not to say that that's the only reason she's going to get the nomination really in my personal opinion, I think she is very deserving. So I'm rooting for newcomers to. The only backlash backlash, the only the Barrett against elites is she's not an actress. This is a first movie and she's cheats. She herself. I'm not an actress, so yet it's a great performance and she's in my honorable mention, but the the two things against the film that it's her first. So they going to is the kademi going to honor her. I mean, it's deserving she is. They might say, well, you know, I mean there have been other actors who've been really light like paying their dues and work in and doing all this great work. I'm gonna after this. I'm gonna play you David Spade comedy bit about this phenomenon. Okay. And how it like Jennifer Hudson spends her whole life training to be a singer comes up, runner up in American idol, whatever waltzes over to acting wins and us ker camera, sit obey fright dominated like they love their newcomers and look. I mean, lady Gaga technically is a new. Okay. She's Jennifer Hudson of two thousand eighteen. You may be saying that they sort of fill the same slugged. Okay. I'm not discounting deletes which is not on your list. She's a my honorable Mitch because she it is listen. I think it is extraordinarily movie and it is a strong front runner next to like stars born. And now now that I have seen green book, I could save absolute sure Jeff, you're absolutely right and all the other considerations we had about the show. It is a terrific crowd pleasing field. Good, very, very deep heartfelt funny movie. It really has it all. That's me right now. Ours born green book and Roma role discounting. There was great. Picture, but it was director by, but yeah, Lisa, she's a runner. You're number three light Parag number three. All right. My number three is Melissa McCarthy for? Can you ever forgive me? So speaking of great Oscar nomination stories, here's a transformative performance for Melissa McCarthy. Everybody loves rooting for those kinds of things, and it's another case where she is deserving. She is a great. She's a great actress across the board, and I know that she fell into a trap of doing the same types of comedic performances over and over. A lot of those movies make a lot of money so that she has a lot of fans for that kind of stuff there. But I very rarely think those movies are on her level and really give her the opportunity to show everybody what she's capable of. Then all of a sudden you get a movie like, can you ever forgive me? And that's it. That's the one. And I just want to see that one in the conversation. I mean, we're definitely going to be talking about it in other category. Stories as well. But as one of very few female directors who are within arm's reach, to an extent for that best director nomination, I just want to hear more people talking about this. So come released. I'm curious to see what the responses jump in because she is also mind number three, most Carthy for can you ever forgive me transform a performance, not a complete shocking transformation because I thought she was great in Saint Vincent to which which was a little more on the comedic side, but it was more of a serious role as well. But this movie and I was like, thank goodness. This movie came out or started screening at film festivals within days of happy time, murders bombing at the box office. That movie was awful and just was not a good showcase for most of McCarthy's talents at all. This one is and think about Kan. forgive me is how how the movie itself just really captures the feeling of loneliness of being passed over being left behind of a woman who was desperate to to survive in one thousand nine hundred eighty s. New York. She's a one time bestseller who resorts to forging old letters to make a living in all catches up with their and Richard E grant is equally strong as her lonely best friend, but I've loved this movie. I love her in this role. I think she's fantastic, absolutely deserving, and I think she's a lock to get nominated, Jeff. Can you guys ever forgive me for having not seen this movie? Come on this in Toronto. I'm going to see later this week or early next week and I can't wait to weigh in. Then I do have Melissa McCarthy in my predictions because I have heard that she is absolutely fantastic. I ever in the five slot right now. If you know, once I see the film, maybe she creeps up to the two or three slot. I'm a big fan of hers as you said like insane, Vincent, we saw that film was more of a comedy, but her role was more dramatic in it. I think she's a wonderful actress and yeah, I can't wait to see this film. Okay. Well, what's your number three minute? Number three is Felicity Jones on the basis of sex. We'll cave wildcard. Yeah, I think you. Very, very probable. Go ahead. You know she she was nominated for the Stephen hawking film, right? The theory Jefferson did she shouldn't win though right now. Okay, so, but I think that sort of shows that she has won the respect of her peers in the kademi. I think it's just been a huge year for Ruth Bader Ginsburg obviously with the RPG doc being so successful, and then just all the crap with cavenaugh and the supreme court like people want to root for the good supreme court Justice. And I think there's going to be a lot of goodwill towards this film. I think if any female directed film cracks the best picture lineup, it's most likely to be on the basis of sex two points. Okay. Well, that is a very, very, okay. Your number four Perry. Well, that one's not in my list, but in my little honorable mention section, I think that's one of the ones where even though I have movies on this list that I haven't seen yet, I think because I've seen so little and heard. So few reactions because has that screened at any festival, let's not yet. Man hasn't debut. It's like when I think about that movie and like Mary Queen of Scots, I just haven't been able to embrace it to the point where I'm confident and putting it on my list. Again, at the beginning, I'm fifteen percent. They are quiz Scott's. I mean, either either social runs Margot, Robbie could end up as search. Ronin is on my little outlier list right now, but for my number four, this Ivan yet again, another movie that I haven't seen, but I'm confident is going to be in the conversation quite a bit. It's a vehicle men for the favorite I have. I've heard wonderful things about three big performance in performances in this movie. The only thing that I think might be working against her is this whole conversation about who belongs in what category and people doubling up in certain categories and just a little confusion that could maybe misdirect where to target your votes. And I think that could wind up hurting her. But if she is as much of a standout in the movie, as I've heard then I think Libya Coleman has a real shot and getting the nomination. I liked the favourite ally. I think it's a, it's sort of like a sort of Victorian all About Eve. I've liked the dialogue. I loved the. Performances. I thought Rachel vice and stonework terrific into movie Olivia Colman as well. Not on my list, Jeff. I agree that there's a lot of confusion about where to position her. I think it would be crazy for her to run for lead because I think if she went supporting, she'd have a much better chance. Although that said all the real vipers, this season are in supporting Amy Adams for vice. Clarify for I man like there's that's going to be a competitive category this year. I have her on the outside looking in the top name and honorable mention my number six. I just I, I liked the favourite, but I hated the first half of the film. It took while to grow on me almost like phantom thread so that I, I don't have her on on my top. Five. You want my number four. That's your number four. Number four is Davis for widows? Yeah, I again, I thought she was very good. I don't know that I pencil her in a walk by any stretch, but I think that people are really going to like this movie. I think it's going to perform well. Commercially reviews are pretty strong like I didn't love the movie, but it's a solid b plus to me like I loved it. It's good. Yeah, it's very good. So yeah, I think just like that support for the film overall and obviously viola Davis is loved by her peers. Yeah, I think she gets into I create. She's on. She's number four on my list to. I loved the film. It felt. You know, I've described widows as a female heat without the side of the cops. It's just about the robbers and that may take the heat aspect out of it. But I think the what I was trying to say about about what is it feels very much like Michael Mann type of direction, even though it's directed by Steve McQueen whose twelve years a slave won best picture. I think viola Davis. This is this is an ensemble film, but she is the pin of the movie. She is the bolt that holds it all together, and it is an exceptional movie, exceptionally written, exceptionally directed powerfully acted by everyone, but she is the strongest and I think that she is going to get nominee not on my list. I think it's a reasonable prediction to make, but having seen widows and one of my main criticisms of it was it was almost going back and forth between being a rousing commercial heist movie. But then also having a lot of, you know, like darker more. More thematically meaningful threads to it, and I kept seeing the two things where they would work well, but then all of a sudden they would be at odds with each other, and I didn't really know what to make of it. And I think that confusion might make the overall label for widows more commercially viable than it is a movie that's going to have the legs. It needs to get into the Oscar conversation. And for that reason, I think she might get bummed out of it. And I think the same might be true for someone who I thought gives a great supporting performance and Elizabeth DeBakey, which loved her Schnitt guests. The better shot. I getting nominee interest supporting, maybe vile. Even though I do think that file it will make the cuts, don't a formula. Nine number four was living Coleman. 'cause I did my number five of mine. Who is your five was Ulitsa. Okay. My number five one, the new name now I number five. You really don't mind. Cheated. We slam on the death by my number five, you really went home and I'm five is wanna know what my number five is guess. Can you guess who's number five, who's my number five now. Now I number five. I actually had it down on Goalby goal derby dot com. Where where film experts LIZA pundits give their picks and Perry is now a new member get me up there. Yeah, you should actually be on the single, but my number five here it is the suspense building up the suspense here, suspense and intensity for my number five with. Could it be well here it is Toni Collette for heredity that wow, now that movie was very polarizing. You have people who love it. You have people who hate it. It is disturbing unnerving film that does not end on a high note whatsoever, but there is no denying the power, the commitment of Toni Collette. It is to performance of her career. She was going to get Oscar nominated for the first time since she was nominated for supporting actress for nine hundred ninety nine the six cents. Also a horror movie. Her performance in this film is absolutely it is. Emotionally grueling all over the place. It is just an absolutely superb toward the force performance. And I think that she will get recognized having said that my also ran for number five because I think these could easily flip by my also Raffarin number five is a film that came out early in the year and it did very well. It's an original film. It rocked my world when I saw it in south by southwest film festival, but go ahead. Is it a quiet place? It is a quiet place. Yes, it is. This is what I love. Mansa them with one wants and easily be Emily blunt or Toni Collette. They're both great ends are blizzard ballsy predictions only blunt is so Dame good in a quiet place. The scene in the bathtub once they're both her Antoni header both. Excellent. I hope they both get in, but if you're talking about like, let's say they both get in. Okay. Now we got Tony Colette Emily, blunt, and and Glenn Close three of the five slots taken from movies that were released before September that would blow me away. Well, I mean, look, twenty collect. I mean, listen, people might give a quiet place to because it's, oh, it's a hard movie. Oh, it's a successful Hollywood film. And first of all, it wasn't like a big budget Hollywood film. It was an original movie. I just think it's it was dare bowl film. I think you've made a good argument for it man's really like she was so phenomenon. I'm watching apply place going like, you know, with. With those actors, you know, chock Khorasan ski, Emily, blunt and Millicent. Simmons. The daughter? Yeah. What they were able to do with hardly any dialogue whatsoever way to cats and alive in the conversation acting like your in a quiet place like so it came out in March. So what if it's a horror movie where I'm willing to it's so every the year, for sure what a quiet place between Emily blunt and Toni Collette. I think they're both kind of long shots and not that I think. Deserving, but between the two, if one of them snags the nomination, I do think it's Tony collegue also because Emily blunt your mind goes to the who knows what's going to happen with Mary Poppins ever. Nobody knows that good, but we have already heard that Disney could be mounting an awards campaign for that. Maybe. So if she winds up in this category for that reason, it completely obliterates quiet places. Chances where I'm watching a quiet place though, is in the screenplay category. We'll talk about that upcoming episode when we dive into the coming up for your legs before we do our master list here. I wanted to just run down some other names since you're since you're throwing. I want to. I forgot. Emily blunt for Mary Poppins. Yes, Julia Roberts Ben is back is supposed to be really good. I didn't see that did sit good in the film, but not a real contender in your. I think your million. I've loved Dennis back, but I mean, and it's definitely. I mean, Julia cheese. She doesn't really make a whole lot of movies these days. I mean, ever since she won the issue in the congress and that six to ten range over India, six to ten, six tench Hilary Hilary swank what we had. No, I really liked what we had that movie is not very good, but it's an Oscar contender is. Okay, good stuff. Go ahead, social Ronin for American Scott Tong, but he knows sausage. Nicole Kidman for destroyer. She was very good at, but I don't know about the reaction to the film overall. She's really good in that, but I think that's one of those movies where it's like her performance and the rest of the movie comes in just behind it. And also, you know, I wouldn't really say it's the most appealing movie ever. It's very tough watch. And that might make it even more Charlene's in monster. Yes, it's a transformative role. It's a film. I love the film. I saw a, I've thought it was great, but I think that Nicole Kidman it's going to get more attention for supporting yellow buoy sport you race Joanna Kulik for Cold War. I'm seeing that tomorrow night or you know. Yes, tonight I'm seeing tonight and Rosamund pike for all right. I'm getting her here that they're both excellent constants, woo for crazy, which Asians could be in the conversation nest actress now think so. I'll okay. I got one more Natalie Portman for Vauxhall. I'm surprised it. Go ahead. Well, I don't know about vox locks because I heard very slowly. Coming out of tiff for that one. But this is more I think their their their major, long shots. But these are two that I'm genuinely rooting for one is cure nightly in Colette. I'll try. Try. It kinda got over. It's been in the conversation for a little while now because it didn't. I debut a tiff. I think it premiered at Sundance, but she's so good. And that's a great example of someone who takes what's on the page and just Braves so much life and passionate that the Colette energy is just infectious and everything that she's learning about herself along the way and embracing and celebrating. It really got to me. The other one I have here is Charlene, Darren entirely yet another one that kind of got completely overlooked when it came out, but that's another movie. That's got a really interesting character journey and really could only be handled by someone as as capable and his exceptional as Charlie's there. And so I wish that a little more seems to have faded from the company. In October, not not April or whenever out because it was too early. And I feel like Jason Reitman also has frontline are coming out also direct the Tully. I think they've wanted to put more weight. He wanted to put more weight behind that. Only Jennifer, Lawrence heads and buzz Herod's barrow which I still think is a crazy crazy the a lot, but that that's a long shot. All right. So let's talk about, let's solidify, should we shall we name our top five individually before we? Okay. Yes, you're had lady Gaga. You'll eat Saporito Felicity Jones viola Davis. Melissa McCarthy. Okay, para my number one is lady Gaga I star is born. Then I have Glenn Close for the wife Melissa McCarthy for can you ever forgive me a Libya Coleman for the favourite? My number five is alita appereciation for Roma. Okay. By top-five Glenn Close for the wife lady Gaga for stars, born Melissa McCarthy for can you ever forgive me? Viola Davis for widows, and and they tie for fifth place just because you know, it's it's only October. So I'm going to say. Toni Collette for hereditary Emily blunt for a quiet place. So now we gotta come out with our master list as of now. And again, ladies and gentlemen, berko went to come back to best actress and this category completely completely different, but five different nominees. When we do this category again, and we will buffer now become one is blend closed because she has to number one votes from you. Remember too is lady Gaga exactly. Number three appears to be both. It's Melissa McCarthy because she has to number three votes. Number four is a number four file a Davis because she has to number four vote before votes. Then we're looking at Felicity Jones, Livia Coleman. And then you're, you're okay. Well, city Jones. You know, we, we'll revisit this from the trail, went from the footage I've seen for for for basis of sex. You know, Ruth beta Ginsburg was not showy sort of like out there like, you know, like she's not Gary, Gary Oldman in darkest hour. Okay. And I think that's part of the problem with like Ryan Gosling and I man, it's not a showy role, so I don't know for sure the Felicity wildcard, so it's a little less than a wildcard, but it's not exactly sure. Libya Coleman or Libya Coleman because we should. We both had her. No, I didn't have. Mentioned list. Okay. Okay. Okay. Well, let me ask you this before, calm in is supporting that. So that's exactly what I wanted to ask for it. Rachel vice and Emma stone and support. No. Estonians seems like the bigger front runner for that movie in supporting, which I think would knock Bolivia Coleman out and into this gory. See Emma stone is a lead. The lead in that role. And so as Rachel vice for that matter, I think Libya called is supporting actress, gives us Toni Collette that gives us or is there or is there another name do? We think because I think Emily blunt in twenty a real long shots. I don't. I mean, listen again, nightly. I think care nightly Colette is actually more likely than than those two. No, I just I just hereditary. You watch you watch the range of Toni Collette in that movie. I mean, you know, there are a couple of points FM what she actually is very, very lively and humorous. And then you know, she goes right to the next scene where she's just absolutely devastating and heartbreaking. I mean the piercing shriek what she sees see, that's that's it's a little campy times goes a little too far and becomes a little silly. What do you think parents Perry, we're, we're talking about predictions here and quality of the movie aside, if. We're, we're talking about who's going to land that last spot. I just don't think that Toni Collette is is the one who's going to do it. It's a very divisive movie. It's also a movie that came out earlier in the year, and we talk about my other number five. All visiting the same conversation. Supporting ten movie was a beloved smash hit, but still the things working almost seems like she could go supporting to, you know what? Okay, revelation, a pithy. This is what's going to happen. Why? Because this is going to push Emily blunt for lead for Mary Poppins returns and paramount, and going to push Emily buff for supporting for for everybody to support those get. And both both the performance get nominate just like Alpa chino. He was nominated for supporting active foregoing, Gary Ross. He was nominated for lead actor for for a woman and he went for samples. So if you're saying it's not going to be a Livia Coleman because she's going to be supporting it and it's not going to be Emily blunt. You can go supporting, we're saying not going to, we need a name. We're here in nightly Felicity Jones or viola Davis. What about you? Lisa vile. We already have her. Yeah, she's all. But just picking number five. And I'm going to go back at five. You didn't you who had elite, so you had? Yeah. All right. You know what? I, I'm fine with knocking Toni Collette off this master with us in favor of Ulitsa flow. I forgot that she wasn't on my bed. Okay. No, she should definitely. I lost because I, I lost track of Glenn Close. So it's like close Gaga, McCarthy Davis, deletes for wind up. Flap, we figured it out act -solutely. The show is all about an again. Again, I have to say the next time we talk about this actress. This could be a completely different conversation. Yes. Some of these names could still elites in in the fifth slot though, like getting in with that last. That that would actually be very, very. That I got to see the white. She was in my, she was in my honorable mention, but for the sake of this conversation, I feel completely comfortable with with putting her in the in our list of five nominees for best actress. Okay.
