if you like James Rosen you'll love this right back great everything's great six forty four a quick show on the radio as of fake it's a great you know what the nuance of the governor Cuomo impression that you do at the end that's what I would every time I was on Saturday Night Live are doing impression I would really do something esoteric that go with that not many people get but you always always look forward to that one person walking up to say I saw you did that move that one move like that like I even like I what would we do we all when I was on the cruise Reese last year this schmooze crews were on the land as a captain Fred and then and then I do the Bruce thing and the Bruce Springsteen with Mikey my son and then Eric with taxes came over and he said you know do you're choosing your chin was just what and I and I was I was so pleased that the taxes that every pick that up because you know you get into the bruise mode and it's a little esoteric things like that that I like to do ago Bridget look we W. to governor Cuomo look look it begs the beat and then I always say that we talked about it yesterday how he repeats the question yes the quite a bit it doesn't do that all it said that why he is that the big why did Eddie goes out it's great Joseph and he would probably I think if I don't write it because because of what he I think he does you know incredibly you know pretentious right can't help himself well we we with respect I remember he used to call in to he the the only radio show that he used to go on with Fred Dekker's radio show in all that up in Albany and then they had a falling out but he everyone in the world calls Fred Dicker friend right everyone well fed because mother used to call him Fred so what is it for need to call in and call in Frederick nobody's going to read your I would call in he would be Frederick as so formal that is a is a soldier but they had a falling out what happened what happened our policy yeah exactly what with this I think Walmart would know I mean I was yeah well you said you still afraid of you know god he got coronavirus because even like did you was getting all the attention right that is great you know and who believes that that is why he said yesterday's press conference he mentioned about how and here's the price he had my mother over and this is a problem like it was going to spread out yeah yeah yeah that's but but the thing is we're on it but it's not like when when he when he's talking about that did they is there really a contention did you see the CNN interview when the governor went on Christmas show if you slice up a good portion of it yeah that that was all put out tell me that was all put on that which one because he's been on every night no it would not have even on every night but he was on which many times of the late all right with that was on the board so contentious back and forth yeah that was put on right I mean is that for fun I hopefully that's for fun because it looked like Martin and the governor had started the interview with mom made me come on I did what the then they went back and forth yeah it was about him running for president right yeah yeah yeah yeah and then and then Chris you know you're you're the brother they went back and forth so hopefully that's friendly barbs friend yeah he took a dig at him he took a dig at him the night before he found out that he was diagnosed with corona virus he said well you know I'm in Albany you're in the basement you work an hour a day must not make a lot of money yeah also the thing with those two specifically is there thirteen years apart right so this is not as if they grew up going to the same school yeah yeah I got it I mean how far apart are you in and and your siblings yeah eighteen months maybe my mom god bless it you know I grew up together again events together right so my my oldest sibling is ten years younger than me and that is a huge Gulf right but throughout the ten years in age thirteen years is even more more substantial so they never really were peers growing up or as they were making their coming about their careers together they never sure did their thing so they kind of evolved separately interesting it now but with all my kids I mean I have a spammer junk in front for we we is not going to be as tight with you know I don't think yeah why not even it's not even a question of tightness is a question of the kind of relationship that show you exactly I'm gonna have a different relationship Hey Frankie your if your rate is something that they are best friends it is the cutest thing to what I'm telling you I don't know how it is is a blood is it whatever it is but here I got Joe you know who's my first it job Joe he looks like he's twenty five by the way you know but he's a he's over is over thirty of eighty and then I got Charlie is it but she's not lying the two of them together is a joy to watch of time is that right well I am going to not you know we aren't close it set you know Joey is not going to confide in Charlie and come to her for advice and do you know what yeah her to borrow money it's just it's isn't certain things you do

"And I figured you'd have a take on that with the evolution of the shotgun position. Defames it really love football. Go back into the forties with the mad magicians the Fritz Kreisler teams. I mean, deception was unbelievable. You they had they had A a. single wing tailback. And then the full-back was right next in like, they are now kind of split, you know, like one was a little deeper than the other. They would snap the ball to the to the fullback, and he would spin around, and then they would have guys crossing in the backfield and trying to find the ball because his back was to the line of scrimmage and all this deception was going in behind and they would do great jobs of faking. So it it was a fascinating fascinating offense by hard to defend things are a little different now. But still a lot arts key the guard. He the guards said something ours. Always take it to the ball. You'd be looking back. They're trying to find the ball you were in deep trouble. So you always watch the gun, and they would get you every once in a while the guards have pulled it'd be a misdirection. But but ninety percent of the time you followed the guards he would take you to the ball. So as as much as things evolve in football, read, your keys region, read your keys, right? And that's why. Now, a lot of the deception that you see that a coach is trying to do. It'd be like. Jim and coach Warner's coming up with a unique way to use his guards on a play. That is not the play. They're running just to make you think it's one play, and it's actually a different play because you have to read your keys, and if your team the fullback better watch out, if you're keying in running you got you have to have key breakers in your game plan in order to confuse the defense, somewhat regia keys. He's gonna take one thing out of this. Jack Reed your last week we had fail forward this week. We have adopted read your case. And now here's Jack from October talking about trying to recruit Jim Abbott the football player Jack Harbaugh. Tell the story now Jack Harbaugh actually recruited Jim Abbott the football player. And of course, Jim was a great punter and kick punter and quarterback at Flint central being it's horrific pitcher. So Jack, why don't you tell us about your recruitment of Jim Abbott? Of course, Jim Abbott at that time was one of the the renowned names and all of Michigan athletic high school Michigan athletics. And Fred Dekker was the baseball at western and told me that he was recruiting Jim to come there and threats any head a partial scholarship, I maybe a half scholarship that they didn't offer. I don't think foles or there weren't many falls being offered. Then that I remember and asked me what I thought I said I guarantee you whatever you're giving him. I will I will match it to make sure that he has a full scholarship, and what what we were recruiting as he would've punter. He could've punted at any major football school in the country and possibly had a pro career as a punter, but he also was a quarterback. And can you imagine no playing with a with a one one hand? But he was a very very good quarterback. They ran anything that you'd want to run through ball. No. Of course. A great arm that he had and also by remember, they ran it just a little bit of option to, but but he was very very talented quarterback. And I just felt that he would be a tremendous asset to our team. And we thought for a while for it. And I thought that our ark deal would be good enough to get him to come to western Michigan. But but he came to Michigan. And as I say he made a tremendous decision made a tremendous choice and so happy for his career. But the one thing that I'm most disappointed with with Jim Abbott is he pitches. No hitter, the New York Yankees and fantastic accomplishments in itself, but it happened to be against my beloved Cleveland Indians. So so my heart is a little heavy that the Indians gave up the no hitter, no hitter. But it couldn't have been to a to a greater competitor. That you up next a little more. Jack talk here in each day, the.

"I really didn't like it took me a good half an hour to settle into this movie. Like, I like the first scenes I was like, I do not like the editing that you're doing here. I do not like the texture is very jazzy editing. I didn't feel like it. It felt like the movie was trying to force the vibe of some of the performances on me instead of just allowing me to watch the performance because there's a scene at the begin. Inning of the movie with what's her name khloe, grace Marantz, and she's very like, Iraq and freaking out. And I felt like the movie was like forcing the erotic nature of that performance. Instead of me just like watching her beer attic. I was like man she's fucking like let me soap this in just wanna like experience. It don't shove down my throat. And so it really took me a fucking half hour of this like two and a half hour movie. Did finally like, okay, I've like acclimated to the moving, right. And that's a fucking problem for me. Yeah. I just wish there was more of a through line with that main character. I felt like there was some interesting choices that could have been made. It's not bad. But at times definitely felt like a bit of a chore by the I definitely recommend it. Yeah. No. I'm going to watch. It definitely need to see it. It's probably watching know when I have a half hours to waste on a movie. That's agree. Yeah. Like like, I said that the stuff with the behind the scenes of the witches and all that like is really cool. And I liked it. They focused heavily on that. I just felt like when it was all said and done. I was like, well, you really like went to dents to all over the place that never really fully wraps up. At like, I felt like all of a sudden it does that thing. We're like, oh every once in a while you'll hear the political stuff over the radio or and I felt like all of a sudden at the end of the movie when they kind of start tackling the political stuff. I was like, okay. I guess like you did show me that stuff over the radio. And now you're about that. But I just felt like it just felt very like. I don't know. It just didn't land for me to didn't feel like it had like properly set itself up for that. I don't know. Right. That'd be interested in more takes on it though. I I I'm gonna see it feel like all chime. Yeah. So frustrating disappointed, but also partially enjoyed a lot of it. So it was very like I came out of it. Like, I don't know. What to say what this liked in hated it? I don't know. So yeah, it's a spirit twenty eighteen divisive movie. Yeah. Greg. What did you I? Well, I. I went in on a abandoned dice roll winter. Yeah. I caught up with the predator. Oh, nice curious to see it's. Yeah. Shane black. Fred dekker. Interesting cast. Can they make this franchise? Good still a troubling production. Yeah. I heard. Yeah. Definitely stuff there. Yeah. I'll be brief. Yeah. It isn't good. Okay. It's it's I was on board for a while. Yeah. Mo's washing with. Anna. And well, let's let's say this to I. You know in my teens and twenties I smoked a lot of pot. Yes. It was a great time. Yeah. And then I stop smoking hot became legal. Recently.

"Well, established universe is the kind of thing that I wish Hollywood would do more often, you know, like we are always talking about like this is like sort of the perfect blend between the artistic pursuits and creative. Pursuits of somebody like Damon Lindelof who is an ambitious storyteller and the like business needs and necessities of a company like HBO who you know would. I'm sure love to pull in people based on property that has a bunch of name recognition. So they're sort of getting the best of both worlds. It's like the name recognition. But a story that nobody knows exactly what's going to happen. That's really exciting to me. Yeah. I mean, I I trust in Lindelof that he can, you know, write this for an audience that probably isn't you know, fans of the watchmen comic. I guess my concern is. Will people even try to watch this? You know, thinking that like, oh, you know, I didn't really love that watchmen movie from sex matter. I didn't read the comic and this this whole world. It looks weird with these you know, the. The the costumes with kind of strange, and I don't know I I'm just wondering if I guess if the general population will be sucked in, but you know, they watched the leftovers which is very weird story in its own. So I guess, you know, HBO audiences are ready to you know, dig in a little bit. So, but let's move onto Johnny quest. They have announced that they are making Johnny quest movie with the director of the Waco Batman movie, Chris Europe this up for the site. Would we know? Oh, yeah. So one of others has been trying to make a Johnny quest movie since at least the nineties and at one point nine thousand nine hundred five Richard Donner was going to direct a movie with Fred Dekker. The guy who directed. The monster squad writing the script that never happened. Then in the early two thousands, the rock and Zach Ephron we're going to star in a live action movie that never happened and then around two thousand sixteen Robert Rodriguez became attached to direct, and he was supposed to kick off this whole Johnny quest franchise that wonder brothers, and is hoping would be like the new Harry Potter for them and that to never happened. But now. Chris McKay who directed. The LEGO Batman movie is in charge of the Phil. It's not clear if he's going to use the script that was written for the Rodriguez movie if they're going to start fresh, but that's where it is. Now, he's going to be directing the Johnny quest movie. And we'll see if it actually happens because like I said they've tried this multiple times. And there's always a chance this won't get off the ground. The other. Is there anybody here who loves the Johnny quest series? I loved it back in the day. I mean, I I'm I'm more. I can see them with the series itself. I love the globe. Trotting sixties set. You know, colorful, two fisted adventure stories. I love the aesthetic. I can't say I haven't a genuine affection for Johnny quest. I'm ready for that aesthetic come back, especially if they want, especially if the make it a period piece, you know, shoot at like Pete and reach out Dallas love like actually was made in that period. And I'd be super domino. Johnny quest is as Chris McKay. The person to do that. I don't know. I don't know because I feel like we go back. Batman movie is really lovely. It's optimistic in wonderful in like hopeful in a way thing Johnny quest should be as Chris writes in his article the last thing we need is a grim and gritty Johnny crispy that sounds like a nightmare. It's like it's like it'd be like making a grim and gritty superman. We all saw that turned out. But I wanna know if Ben has eight thousand spent trying to mean, anything to you. I actually I saw I watched a handful of the Hanna Barbera cartoons. But I feel almost barest to even admit this guys. But I watched this show called the real adventures of Jonny quest which came out in like the late nineties, and it was looking back on it. You know, I thought it was really cool at the time. But looking back on it. I'm sure it was like a very very ridiculous because it was all about like, Johnny quest virtual reality check. I can't imagine. I remember this. It was I I mean, I loved it at the time..

"Here and attack each day. The Harbaugh's podcast. We wanna thank Jim Abbott once again for being our guest here on the show, and we mentioned it a little bit earlier in the program, but we're going to Jack Harbaugh tell the story now Jack Harbaugh actually recruited, Jim Abbott, the football player. And of course, Jim was a great punter and kick punter and quarterback at Flint central in addition to being terrific pitcher. So Jack, why don't you tell us about your recruitment of Jim Abbott? Of course, Jim Abbott at that time was one of the, the renowned names and all of Michigan. Thais, school, Michigan, athletics, and Fred Dekker was the baseball and western and told me that he was recruiting two convenient and he had a partial scholarship. I maybe a half scholarship that they didn't offer. I don't think falls or there weren't many fools being offered, then that I remember and ask me what I thought I said, I guarantee you. Whatever you're giving him. I will match it to make sure that he has a full scholarship and what what we were recruiting. He would've punter. He could've punted at any major football school in the country and possibly had a pro career as a punter, but he also was a quarterback. And can you imagine you know, playing with a with a one one hand, but he was a very, very good quarterback. They ran anything that you'd want to run through ball. No, of course, a great arm that he had and also by remember they ran into some little bit of option to, but but he was very, very talented quarterback, and I just felt that he would be a tremendous asset to our team and when thought for a while read and I thought that are deal would be good enough to get him to come to western Michigan, but but he came to Michigan and and as I say, you made a tremendous decision made a tremendous choice and so happy for his creek. But the one thing that I'm most disappointed with Jim Abbott is. He pitches no hitter the New York Yankees and fantastic accomplishments in itself. But it happened to be against my beloved Cleveland Indians. So so my heart is a little heavy that the the Indians gave up the no hitter no hitter, but it couldn't have been to a to a greater competitor. Jim Abbott, he was a heck of a high school athlete of Flint central. And according to urban legend, he never fumbled in practice or in a game at the quarterback position, which is an accomplishment in itself, and obviously saw great accolades when he went on to play college at pro baseball team USA at the Olympics, and so many other things so. And I know that he and Jim are looking forward to being water polo dad's together. You get to be a water polo grandfather with them at the fool. So that's exciting times ahead with the Harbaugh Abbott families getting together. We're looking forward to it and then so good to know that that daughter will be teammates on the water polo team. All right. Jack, enjoy the rest of your time in Baltimore. Safe travels back. We'll see back here. Inside Lahore next week. Okay, thank.

"So it's like the predator always shows up when it's a literal and metaphorical hotspot. So it's like it needs to be a real fucking hot outside and be there needs to be a lot of bloodshed going on and then the predator shows up. And this time it's just like nondescript America town in October around fucking Halloween. Like, are you fucking kidding me? Did nobody watched the first two predator moves before they made this movie? Like what happened? The real issue is Shane black, not Fred Dekker because there was a lot of people in between the person who wrote this movie and then the movie going into my holes, and it's a lot of people's faults. There's a many people to blame for how stupid this movie is the more we talk about this movie, the more angry it makes me and I was so happy walking out of the theater this movie on Saturday night. I just want to go back to simpler time. I just got my copy of predator to out. I'm ready to watch how I was so sad, like I know view see was not looking that great. The last time we saw him in this movie, but I really expected one of those cheesy moments at the end when he comes back when he's there with the other scientists, and he just has like his arm in a sling and like he's going to be fine in the future. Like I wanted him to come back. Where was he? Where was Jacob? UC? They made a point of showing that he was still alive and yet he doesn't come back. This is the same film that cut out at were James Olmos wait a second, Edward. James Olmos is in this movie. He was, but he was cut out. So you had the best actor that you had in the movie and you cut him completely out of the movie was that's supposed to be a, not him with that. We're tin foil unicorn that that'll scape to her home my God. I think it was that weird cut to all of a sudden they have all that junk. Inside of the yellow bandana and he even says, like, I don't know where he kept this like the hula girls like, I don't know where he kept this. I'm like, so how are we supposed to identify that with the character? Like do they all have these totems? But apparently we never see the one totem of the one guy. He kept it in his, but I've held this hula girl in my ass three us. This was your father's girl. I think we need to stop making these movies, I think is the big takeaway here. I think we need to stop with the alien movies and stuff with the predator movies because I think for me personally, at this point, we're doing more harm than good. Got one more for you when the coffin opens up its Arnold, but it's not all Terminator. Now that is the predator killer because I know that darkhorse did Terminator vs predator. At one point they must have, oh, man. Fucking seat and screamed Holly Louis. Ah, have been like all is forgiven. And then it just goes to..

X number of PTSD team. That's mental. You're insane, right? The laura. Past booking you their tourism. Figured something out and we're going to die. Just pointed out a big who is. Dogs with. Now, the. The predator. Theaters everyone and welcome to the culture cast. I'm Chris statue n I am joined by Eric, the non predator predator himself. Wait what? And we are also joined by the host of the projection booth podcast. Mr. Mike white in a super predator. I, you know the old, is it the super was the ultimate ultra predator. All right, predators, holy shit. I knew it. Oh my God, maga- predators and good to be the biggest predator round your neck. Gonna know why I'm so big, but I'm very big. It's going to be stupendous. It's going to be the most terrific British of all time I guarantee it. I can guarantee you that that is not the case with this film. On this culture caz we are talking about the predator Shane, black. Finally, getting to write and direct the predator were taking a break from samurai September folks. So strap in the film is like I said, it's directed by Shane black who was a character in the original predators film. This one is written by Fred Dekker, and Shane black film stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevan Tae roads, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan, Michael key. Olivia, Munn Thomas Jane Alfie Allen otherwise known as recruit from game of thrones and sterling k. Brown otherwise known as a. Character that just fucking dies offscreen more or less. So we're gonna talk spoilers because I don't think there's any way we can't. So I'm going to kick it to Mike. I Mike. What did you think of the now? What is this fifth, predator. Six predator movie. It's six, the predator movie? Well, I don't think they earned the article because I, there's, there's more than one predator. So I think that they needed to have pluralist. So grammatically this movie fails across the board, but it was about the sexual predator that was actually in the the predator. I enjoyed it while I watched it. I add some fun. I laughed at some parts, but even as watching, I was just like paying this movie's edited really choppy. I had some issues with it. Let's say that what about you, Eric? I went and saw this movie on a Saturday night in a packed theater with a few beers. And some of that good, California, we'd. Me and I had a fucking wonderful time. That's how you should enjoy this movie because it's just dumb action aliens versus the adult ex marine fun. I don't know. This movie was a lot funnier than I thought it was going to be everybody like me included. I definitely went into this movie thinking like, oh my God, it's going to be so brutal and hard core, and it's going to be the predator that we always wanted to be like, it's just going to be so fucking gnarly that it's gonna be the shit. And this movie was an action. Comedy. If I have ever seen one, is it good? I wouldn't go as far as to say that it was good, but it was fun. I did not think this movie is very good. I thought it was okay. There was a lot of stuff in this film that like Mike mentioned really doesn't work in the grand scheme of things. The last thirty minutes of this movie, and this is pretty much echoing. What everyone else has said the last thirty minutes. This movie are a fuck and train, Rick. It's so muddied and all over the place characters that we've been led to care about for the entire film kinda die and some of them in ways that feels on earned. I wanna talk specifically about surly cave, Brown's character who dies. So quickly that I'm surprised that is character was made to be so important from the gecko because he fucking just blows head off by accident with one of the predators shoulder cannons. Is that what happened?.

"I looked up film producer of the original predator and you'll notice this is quote the home of the warriors. He produced Walter Hill's the warriors as well. I didn't notice either of those things. I noticed that this was taking place in October, and I was immensely disappointed. Apparently Shane black can write movies that don't take place it Christmas. Although these days with the Christmas creep, at least there would have been holiday stuff in the stores. And that seems to be because Rory is having these issues with these bullies, we see their introductory scene pulling the fire alarm and it sends this kid into an autistic panic. He doesn't evacuate like the other kids and they terrorize him knock over all the chessboards and we know he's smart. We would've already probably surmised that, but he's able to put all the pieces back exactly as they were there before. And so we know that he's ostracized because he's different, but also very brilliant. And that will be a convenient way for him to learn the entire predator language and be able to solve all the problems they have with communicating with the creatures and finding their ships. Maybe it's only me thinking this, but I do wonder if Shane black and Fred Dekker know anything about autism that they didn't see in rain, man, I would suspect they put this in here. I mean, it could be one of two things could either be focused group like you need to have something for children, but this is an. R rated film children, theoretically are not going to be able to see in theaters. I think this is just a passion for him. I think that the things that are in here autism and the a are stuff that Shane black one it to be in here. Very specifically. It's just his powers and everything. I was just so hard thinking about rain man and the fact that he beats his own ears when the loud noise comes just like Raymond did and rain man with the fire alarm and what a terrible freaking schoolteacher. The fire alarm goes off. The teacher stands up, goes to the door, watches every child leave, except Rory. Rory is right there in the middle of the aisle and the teachers like whatever closes the door and leaves Rory in this room to probably burned to death. Good thing. It's a fake fire drill. Thank goodness. I want to thank the movie for teaching me that I don't have to pay my PO box bills because if I don't do that, the milk liver to my house because I. I didn't know that was the case. I'm super paying for my PO box guy do not pay because they'll drop it off at my house. I mean, I could not hoping postcard or how about say, we have your package come pick it up? No, my second movie logic, short of the movie, but this one made me laugh out loud, laugh out loud. It makes no sense why this stuff was delivered. But boy, am. I glad it was I actually really liked the line said, my dad goes off and kills people. So you can be a mailman. I thought it was terribly convenient that in the next couple of his mom gives them Halloween costume. It like that giant mask because in a box and his dad has of magic visibility ball. Someone out there thought that was clever writing have all these different ways as kicking disappear. But for me, I found it contrived and I'm guessing that this was a bigger part of the original draft or the movie that the this was much more of Rory story. No, because I mean, what do y'all ultimately do is go trick or treating and blow up. A belief house is feels kind of strange that he's given all of this stuff and he does so little and the story. It's actually very similar in the original ending. The first hour of this movie is pretty much how the two of them wrote it. We read the twenty sixteen draft..
"fred dekker" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"If you look at the poster, it looks like a comic book. They got all these human skulls that form the predator face. I'm thinking, wow, this is gonna be weird and violent. Then the first trailer was like a kitty film. It was like explorers something. Oh, here's a child that's going to befriend like AT this crab from space. And then the latest stuff has all been dude, Brock, comedy where it's just like a bunch of pussy jokes. Yeah, I was really worried with the kitty one because this director Shane black now I really, really like Shane, black director, kiss kiss bang. Bang is one of my all time favorite films and is in our book underrated movies I strongly recommend, and then he basically created a pseudo. Sequel or at least a spiritual sequel with the nice guys. Just another really good movie. Then we get to his franchise work ironman three. I've warmed up to it since our initial review, but man, that is a flawed film. And then here. So I was rooting for this film from Shane black. But I also know Shane black has some fractures, and one of them lately has been inserting very young child into it, be it the little kid in Tennessee and iron man, three or the little kid in the nice guys. There seemed to be a preponderance of that. I was afraid it might be a boy and his predator. I think he's always done it. I think he relates to being adolescent like he is a boy, you know, like all his films have someone that's incredibly immature. Last action hero. He wrote that one that had a kid dragging Arnold around saying, it's just a movie. I think that is the position he is always thought of it. It's not something that he came to late in life. I think it might also be. About like he wants us to channel the kid in all of us in his movies and take it with a grain of salt that we're not gonna get too serious here, but we're all going to have some serious stuff. That's how I always think when you have a kid involved, they want you to see it through there is to some extent. I don't really see this Enchaine black though until we get to the last boy scout he did there. That seems to be the first time when you look at the movie that made Shane black name lethal weapon. No kids in that. I was going to say, monster squad. They did that, yes. You mentioned monster squad. Well, let's look at the writer of this film. I remember talking about this back in twenty sixteen. We've reviewed the movie night of the creeps directed by Fred Dekker. Very close friend of Shane black. They came up together. Shane black helped with night of the creeps and they went on to do monster squad together. Fred Dekker was the writer of this. Now I got chance to talk to him right. When filming began on this, he was telling me how. Great. It was obviously wouldn't spoil anything, but he said, oh, it's going to be great. You're gonna love it. Shane's really taking it to new places. He is. He did up beyond people say, when are you reviewing the monster squad brought to you? Like the monster squad kick me in the NAR if I say no, no, I just have yet to find anyone on now playing who says, yes, I've never seen it. Don't watch it. It's not good. I watched it when I was a kid. I didn't like it just not worthy of a watch. But you know, I might watch it soon. I have two younger kids who might enjoy that thing at some level. Why would you do that to them? Now? I watched it in theaters and walked out going. Yeah. And then because so many l. playing listeners, like, when are you reviewing when are you reviewing it? I actually revisited it just a couple years ago. They came out with a special edition, double desk, Blu Ray set, like all net flicks that disk I will watch this movie. Oh my God, no. So unless you want me to just have shots of video on your childhood memory. Of wolf man's got nartz now playing not reviewing the monster squad and to me Fred Deckers kind of, I think a one hit wonder with night of the creeps. I mean, let's look at his writing credits and we reviewed EMMY did robocup three. That's where I was starting. Yeah..

And some we get some EMMY facts tonight are the Emmys they will be handed out tonight. Michael J, and Colin Joe started the hosts, and yes, we're looking forward to that. And then tomorrow morning, Dan Feinberg is gonna join us to talk about the results. The winners the losers all that cool stuff of the Emmys. So that's all coming up. And as you know, what he's Monday morning, and that means that we do the Monday morning movie reviews with air children's encountered suitor and also Eric's going to stick around, and we're going to get a final wrap up of the Toronto film festival that he got back from a ton of movies. And we'll talk about those what he saw what he liked and all that cool stuff. Lots of movies to talk about this for this weekend. So let's get the guys here. Here's eric. Hello, Eric, Liu and Colin welcome, Colin. Thank you. Hello. All right. So. Let's see let's start out with Eric. Why don't you tell everybody about the predator? Okay. Well, this is the the new the new updated version of the predator, basically, a sequel continuing the line that began in nineteen eighty seven this time what shame black taking on the duties and also co writing duties with his monster squad partner. Fred Dekker gotta say, Eric when I saw that credit. I almost cheered. It was nice. Like. You know, they did they just made this monstrous wa documentary, and you just kind of get you just kind feel bad Fred Dekker after after that thing. So it was just it was kind of nice that chain like reached out to. I mean, you know, he reached out to a couple of people that from his past. Yeah. We'll get into that. Maybe in a minute. But so the a sort of the another military group led by Boyd Holbrook is in the you know, in the jungle trying to get some hostages, and they come across another predator Holbrooke to get some of the predator, similar predators. Things and worried about there might be a cover up on the horizon emails a bunch of stuff two-zone PO box. But instead it goes over to his son and his wife his son played by the fantastic. Jacob Tremblay who has some development issues, but he's very good with video games and electron IX, and he toys around with a predator stuff. And it basically signals another predator. From some outer space to come down and retrieve the things that they were they were there on the hunt for from the stolen from them. Boy, work gets thrown in the military jail. And that leads him into basically another group of inmates, including Keegan Michael key Thomas. Jane, tramonte roads, real kind of ragtag group of guys and Olivia Munn plays a the sun. It's scientist who specializes an extraterrestrial stop silicate Brown. Basically plays the jerky government guy that is you know, trying to, you know, get all the predator technology for the government. Basically, it's to a lot of showdowns between humans and predators. Yeah. And that's exactly what you should expect out of this movie and for movie written and directed by Shane black. If you go in expected anything bought a chain black movie, you'd probably be disappointed in the only real serious. Same black effort that I was not rubbing fan of was ironman three. And that just didn't feel like it had his voice bind Downey brought him in for that. But I just feel like, you know, other than the couple of twists that happened during that movie, it didn't really feel like a scene black movies. This one to me did. And I just I to me it was just basically like watching the eighteen take on the predator. And I was kind of okay with that. You know, Boyd Holbrook is not exactly it wouldn't be my choice for leading man. But he has a lot of help in that group of guys that he surrounds himself with I have fun hanging with this crew in the same way that you had kinda fun with those. Guys back in nineteen seven. These guys are a little looser. There are a lot more fun to be around a little less serious. And it leads to some fantastic gore. At least two us. A third act that has been Reshad and retouched and a few things are a little clunky down there. But it leads to a lot of carnage. And that's exactly what I wanted out of this movie. And I think that. This is kind of a perfect study example of what you need for movies when you need it. And I saw this at the midnight premiere Toronto after I saw, you know movies by Asger variety, and you know, really, heavy Jilin hall film. So this is exactly what he needed at the end of that night. Now, unfortunately, right before that happened this, you know, the scandal happened with, you know, the casting of the movie and socks didn't exactly handle that. Well, and they lot of critics of the movie after that. And I'm kind of curious how many of them have the reviews affected by this knowledge of it? They all of a sudden wasn't as much fun as it could have been. But I had fun. I'm recommending it. Second favored predator movie. I'm not a huge recommendation, but it's one nevertheless. Yeah. I liked it too. I thought it was a lot of fun and. And really goofy. And it didn't take itself seriously at all. And the whole rag tag group of criminal guys who break out of the sky, how many different vehicles do they have? One point inexplicably. They're in a winnebago. What's going on? But yeah. The camaraderie between all the guys, especially Thomas, Jane, Keegan Michael key. They're great and very very funny in it and the deep Ibni effects are fun. There's a lot of good gore. I'm glad it's an r rated predator moving out of thirteen predator movie. And everybody seems to just be in the same. They all see everybody seems to be on the same wavelength. I think Shane black established the tone very early on. And even Jacob Tremblay has a good time this movie like he's. And and Olivia Munn really gets to kick some ads in this movie. She's terrific in it, man. And I I also really really loved the casting Jake Busey. Throwback predator to where his dad was. And I was I was hoping he would be related to him in that carry me too. Sterling K Brown. He's great. He's got all the munching on Nicorette gum throughout the entire movie. Boyd Holbrook is probably the only sort of like, not, you know, he just seems because he's just this really good looking guy who's not the most terrific actor in the world is he really is even related to how Holbrook I believe. So that's his son. I think so. Yeah. I don't know a lot of our grandson. Maybe we could be grandson. Yeah. But anyway. I thought it was fun, and it is really goofy. The audience I sought with had a really good time. Lots of laughs. People seem to have a really good time all the way through. So I I'm recommending it to I think the predator is very very entertaining goofy movie. All right, Colin. Why don't you? Tell us about white. Boy, rick. All right. Based on a true story. It's about a teenager named and it takes place in the eighties. Teenager named Rick worship junior played by Richie Merritt. And he's a high school dropout who lives with his father played by Matthew, mcconaughey and his sister played by Bill Polly. And they they live in to say, the least a less than ideal home life. Rich dad sells guns out of his car is the sister is strung out on drugs and reconsult as is a street hustler in his own, right. And their lives are about to be watched ever more closely by the feds and the drug enforcement agencies were watching them. And in fact, Rick ends up being their informant and someone who will wear a wire. In certain situations. And it's a tough spot for him to be in. And the agents, I should say are played by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Willie. Cochran and that Medicare testing to cast him as a drug enforcement agent. Dazed and confused. But anyway, and you know, it's no spoiler. When I say that eventually Rick becomes a drug kingpin because it's right there the poster it says everything that he became before he turned sixteen. And so this is, you know, one of these movies that, you know, kind of movies that we've seen a lot of lately like American animals, and and war dogs and things like that where you know. It's it's it's a crazy story based based on a true story, but you know, involving guns and drugs and lots of money and young people don't know what they're doing. And all that. Okay. Hang hang on. Okay. We're gonna take a break and we'll come back. We know what the movie's about. Now, we're going to hear what Colin thinks of it. And then we'll find out what I thought of it. And what I thought of it. That's white. Boy, Rick coming up right after the news on seven twenty WGN when posting on most jobs sites. You get candidates. I'm the sales director. Sales director you're looking for. But when you posted indeed dot com, you get the candidates just right for you. I'm sales director with an MBA over ten years experience.

"Earth in this movie brought to humans that is apparently supposed to be something to help them defend against any other predators that might come to earth. And so they're trying to decipher if you're gonna open it, they think they've cracked westerners Quinn gets there. And his son says, it's, it says something but basically like a predator killer. And so they opened up and this thing floats out of it. It's it's some kind of mechanical thing. There's this black goo that sliding off of it, which almost makes you think that it might be something even more related in title alien predator. But then all of a sudden it Le. Changes at one of the scientists nearby latches onto his arm and suddenly encases him in this armor that makes him look like a cross between predator and war-machine all this metal over him glowing red eyes, too huge cannons on each shoul shoulder and just this just huge hulking weapon that they can use and the. I don't know why, because it's it's very obvious one of the scientists that what the hell's that and McKenna McKenna he's, he's like, that's my new suit, like becomes forty two long and like basically teases like that. There's a sequel where they're gonna use that suit to kick predator is. Okay. Guys. Chris talk about the ending quo. What do you think? It's awful. It's so bad. It. All of it is bad. There's not even a single thing in this ending. That's like, oh, that's cool. No, there's nothing that works here. I mean, first of all, it's clearly a reshoot because it doesn't fit with the rest of the film at all. I'm pretty sure even like Jacob Tremblay has a different haircut. It's like really it doesn't fit and the whole like that's a new suit. Just made me die inside what he said. It's just like, just stop it. We don't it just it feels so unnecessary. It feels like, you know, it could just imagine you're seeing this at a film festival, you know, surrounded by movies of like, you know, great, artistic merits, and then you're, you're subjected to the end of the movie was also it was also midnight. So it was like two in the morning. I just wanted to leave just like all right enough of this scene, please. I don't. Okay. You know, I don't wanna see it. Well, if they make a sequel to this movie, I don't wanna see sequel what the human in predator sued fighting a predator. That's just all I one hundred percent want to see that movie. I wanna see that movie balls to the wall nuts, like fighting of entrepreneurs. I thought the ending was. I'm cool with humans with predator tech, but like I don't even think you'd be able to tell the difference between them. It would be very hard now. This was I thought this ending was just perfectly like dumb for the like this movie and I, I loved it. It was so bonkers. Ridiculous. I just thought it was so cool. By the way I'm seeing a lot of reaction online. It's kind of like the reaction around 'em. They Trump months the happening where there a lot of people are theorizing that sheen black purposely made a bad movie. Ben, I don't know about that, but I think it you could easily say that like we, like we've said, are already that he made like a throwback kind of movie. I don't know if he like tanked the film on purpose that doesn't really make a ton of sense unless he started getting into like conspiracy theories territory, but yeah. At one point, we knew that like Arnold Schwarzenegger they wanted him to appear in this movie. Could the original version have had him in the pod actually bread? It's funny you say that peanut. So we wrote a whole article about what the original ending for this movie was, and it has a similar effect as far as setting up a sequel, but it's not nearly as ridiculous. So apparently the original ending as written by Shane black and Fred Dekker is that after they Rory and Quinn and Libyan months character, Casey Beckett have survived the battle with the ultimate predator and defeated it. They're still in the middle of the woods. They're kind of catching their breath. All of a sudden, this helicopter shows about a nowhere and lands nearby. Somebody gets off and walks towards them. It's none of them Dutch from the original predator Arnold Schwarzenegger's character..

"When you're on the podcast earlier this week, you know you give us a one line reaction to the predator. You've called it fun, but dumb. Can you expand upon that for us? Yeah. I mean, it's it's a surprisingly funny movie like this is more of a comedy than anything else, which I don't think I was fully expecting even though I know shame black is really good at writing. You know, funny stuff. I wasn't expecting it to be pretty much straight up comedy, and that's really how I thought it played. There's there's stuff I like a lot of the humor is good. I love humor is also. Terrible. Like anything involving Thomas Jean's character who has Terrell syndrome. You know, they keep you like, ha ha ha. Yes, dress like that. It's all really, really bad. I mean, I won't even get into how offensive because the whole movie is pretty much leading into being offensive. But just the humor is just terrible. It's it's not good at all. And I wish I wish it had just not made it into the film, and I kept like, wait, even though I like Tom Jane, I was like, I hope he dies really soon because I'm gonna sick of this. This running joke here beyond that, you know there stuff. I enjoyed joined the humor. I enjoyed how breezy it is. It's a very fast movie. There's almost no fat on the film. And you know, some of that is not great. It doesn't work the Phyllis favor because you can tell they probably cut down a lot of stuff to make it very streamlined very quick. And so on some levels, I wish there had been a bit. More character development here and there. But on other on the other hand, I liked how quickly the movie moved, and I like tell it really did feel like a throwback to films the eighties like this fellow a lot like the monster squad to me not as good as the monster squad, which is a much better movie. But this feels a lot like that. And you know as appropriate, not because both Shane black and Fred Dekker, who wrote the monster squad wrote this beyond that the the ending is atrocious and we'll talk about that nephews. You know the the, the comedy asked to talking about kind of fits in with the idea that feels like an eighties throwback movie. And I think that shamed like actually really a job of tapping into kind of bringing back the comedic style and you know, politically incorrect -ness of that decade into this movie, which isn't necessarily a wise idea, you know, in this more socially conscious time, but I but I do think that the way that. He used that sense of humor and tied it to, you know, these soldiers with PTSD because obviously that's like how a lot of you know, army guys do joke around with each other, like they make inappropriate jokes and they're totally digs to each other. And I feel like they kind of worked in making those characters, feel more authentic in that way. Ben, and I both give reactions on the water cooler episode earlier this week, but sum it up. I thought this movie was a lot of fun until like the mid point. And then I, I felt that came off the rails in a major major way and got really, really dumb a Ben. Can you sum up your thoughts and like Senator? Yeah, pretty much echoing what you and Chris said, I think the back quarter of the movie is like almost a full out disaster, but I, there are some things I like about the film, and I think the as much as I am sort of right there with Kristen in terms of tonnage, Jane's character..

"Can get challenging places, but I liked, I felt very retro folk quite like eighteen nineties full on abashed ridiculous action film. It kind of fell into that little grew for me. I missed the exact same bit that you missed. Which have only discovered when we go back to the office. But I think is to the editing loses its way in the last third is so frenetic and so all over the place. Some of the cuts I just couldn't. I couldn't keep track of what was happening from narrative perspective from a character perspective. And I kind of just gave a pin, the less I'm just going to have to go with this because I'm just going to give up trying to keep track of anything, which I'm not sure is what you should be doing in a film. I came out. I kind of enjoyed myself. I think a little bit more than than some of the other people. I did enjoy it and I did have a good time and I think you're exactly right. I think I went on a Friday night, the pictures, I would have quite a nice time with it, but I think it is definite kind of fundamental challenges and flaws from film I can give it would depend entirely for me on how much money I'd put. For a cheap mid week matinee perhaps and I'd be okay with it. But if I shelled out the full, we're in London was home. It's to go see a film, a one hundred and forty five pounds. Done that. If I've given up my month's wages to see the film, I might be a little sore it it. It feels to me on a really wanted to love this film because I love the predator franchise. I will even go to bat all day long for predators and I love shame, black. I worship the guy think he is one of the best screenwriters around and has been for a long time. I think he can. He can do things with log that. Other screenwriters just grasp at, and I don't really feel that I don't feel that this movie brought those two worlds together. I don't think that this is very successful, predator movie. I think I think it's going to be pronounced Lee predator. Everyone's pronounce it lip predator. But the idea of the movie is that this all tra- superpredators turns up how through twelve feet tall and makes the classic predator looked like, you know, just a toy, doll characters, very compelling, and I don't think it works very well as a predator film, and I don't think it works necessarily well as shame black movie as well Kuroda with Fred Dekker with whom he co. Wrote the monster squad all those years ago as well. Yes, black and decker. And if I can extended analogy, it feels like it hasn't before the assembled. It just feels like a little bit. He's got so many spinning plates and he's deliberately chosen to do so you have the Livia months. Applaud. You have to check of Trombley subplot. You have the stern, Kate Brown subplot. Then you have Boyd Holbrook and his gang. We home self loonies who feel like the most like a nod to original predator in the each of them have car to quirks to some lovely banter, and I really actually enjoyed the relationship between Tom Jane's car drinking. Mike. The keys Carter which was very, very nice thought to fund roads blue point over the stream when he appeared to them the honest. But I like Boyd Holbrook fine. But I was kind of go thinking myself. I wanna see the film with devante roads leads, to be honest. It just didn't feel at every came together for me at feels muddled and feels like a film bears all the hallmarks of major re-shoots. I waited a long time for shampoo, predator movie sad thing is I think is still m three stars in for the predator. I'm going to finish off our refused this week with king ping of king of which she's Mark. Cockeyed charter rub. I didn't do this. Okay. So it didn't have to nerve Michael Cain and a bunch of old lags including Jim Broadbent, who gets his arse out of cancerous at enough trying to steal sometimes based on true story.

"We may die. We're still here. So come and get us mother. Can we claim Josh, that this is a still processing review of the predator? Are you still processing it? I mean, I think I stopped processing it. The moment credits rolled with that said, maybe we should set up our predator bona fides or lack thereof. Sure. As that may shade the conversation a little bit. This is the fourth installment in the series six if you count the alien vs predator movies. So on my side, I've only seen the first predator movie. Okay. Basically know nothing about this franchise. You have seen at least one more of those installments, but that's it. On your side, you claim that it's better than the original. I am a fan of theirs predators over predator. So there's this correct? There's marks against both of us. Well, yeah. I mean, we don't have any credibility. Now going into this conversation, I was. Mildly intrigued by the concept though. And I think a lot of that had to do with Shane black shirt coming on as co writer along with Fred Dekker and director, Shane black having, of course, a supporting role in the original predator nineteen eighty seven's than writing a bunch of Hollywood action comedies. Primarily the lethal weapon series and then becoming in recent years, a director in his own right with a fairly healthy critical following. I mean, he's a, he's a critical favourite and some corners, and so there was some interest in having him come back to this material, some interesting cast members, maybe we can start there. Yeah, maybe come back. Talk about the cast you say to because he does appear in the first? Yeah, that's a small part support mall part, but otherwise you're right lethal weapon. That's where he made his bones. And I still consider that a top notch eighties action movie in you're right in recent years wrote and directed kiss kiss bang, bang. And I actually really like screenplay for iron man. Three is far. As those marvel movies go. And then we were both fans of the nice guys in two thousand sixteen Russell Crowe Ryan Gosling in that film. So I was thinking about starting there in terms of the writing what you want from machine black movie quips you want good one liners, you want humor. Did we get that? But I'm happy to start where you want to start, which is with the cast. Well, they're kind of intertwined because what I was going to say is the one thing you want are those quips to be well delivered, and I think the predator shows you that you know, whatever percentage, however, you want to split it. It comes down to not only the material, but it comes down to the delivery. And I think there are probably only two people I would point to in the extensive unsolvable cast who are able to split the difference between just laughable heart assery which is what this material is and taking it too seriously. So on the one end, you'll have like Arnold. You'll have Schwartz. Egger and it becomes a joke immediately. It's fun, but it's a joke when he delivers some lines like this and I know chain blocked in right there is real predator. It's that sort of material, and then you have the people who are able to sell it. And they mean it. These characters mean it. They're tough guys, but there's just a little bit of maybe call it awareness a little bit of cell in the delivery where you can also chuckle at it without laughing at them. I think sterling k. Brown does that beautifully. I was going to be one of my guests. He's he's kind of heavy, let's say, has a government agent who's overseeing this operation to track down this predator that has landed on earth once again, and he just walks into scene. He's got the confidence combined with the vulgar language and the authority of his government position. It's just all it's a nice mixture and he delivers some of those one liners. Well, the other one and this is this is good because he's essentially. The lead is an actor that I was unfamiliar with Boyd Holbrook. I went through half of this movie thinking he was either Charlie Hunnam. Yeah, or zero. Awarding ten. Oh, I was going to go Garrett Hedlund..

All that came out in one thousand nine hundred eighty. The fog prom night and terror train. Yeah, after that. Year she was crowned the screen Queen, Janet change your image. She ended up doing comedies because everyone associated her with slasher films. Why is that? Well, yes, how clean and we will be talking about that on our main feed when she comes back for h four zero, but also in nineteen eighty. Those three films, I think very in quality, but also mending a real reputation. I like Jimmy Lee, Curtis a lot. I look forward to that deep dive and Brock is going to be joining us for all of those Jamie Lee. Curtis reviews as he's joining us for Halloween. Stewart calls it h four zero, and he's going to be back next week because we have another theatrical release one that I have been looking forward to a lot more than the non, but it's following kind of the same title. The predator. Yeah, you have always held the faith for this character. I never really cared. I always considered. It also ran to the alien series, but I always wanted to work and I do think the first predator was good. I don't know what to make of this. New one. I haven't seen enough had a Radic trailers. One made it seem like a child fantasy. One made it seem like a broth. Them one who can who can say, hey, it's directed by Shane black who not only was one of the stars of the original film, but is director. I've come to really like with kiss kiss bang, bang, and the nice guys and even come around to some of the aspects of iron man. Three. He is what gives me hope. And for those who remember from our nineteen Eighty-six series, we did the movie night of the creeps that was co written by Shane black and written by Fred Dekker will Fred Dekker is one of the writers of the predator. So there's a lot of pedigree behind this film. I have hope, but then again, Robert Rodriguez did make predators, and I had hope there to hope for the none. Do you always have hope springs eternal, and that's good. I think we'll need it because after we're done with that back video games and who've -able I have.

"Dot com ben has done a full breakdown in the trailers well but boys this bloody and this is this is the trailer that they should have opened with i think like it really reminds me of a predator movie and it's now finally acceded to this hd you have any thoughts on this trailer so they'll be mad at me i've never seen a predator movie and the only exposure i've had to pender is through the editor versus alien i'm not that mad at you for the first statement but the second statement i'm kind of i feel bad yeah sounds like what is this dumb really dark like lit dimly lit in that case to like aliens beating each other up movies so i've never had in a fondness or action for predator but i was impressed by this trailer i liked how moody it was and how it kind of tapped into this ptsd sort of subplot with the soldiers who who i run into the predator and i don't really know what's going on because i'm not really well versed the mythology in the mythology but there's like a bigger predator and that's a really cool reveal so yeah i i liked it i i don't really have anything to say yeah that looks like a predator do you have any thoughts or did you see anything while you're breaking down this whole thing for the site yeah i really liked this trailer a lot i think sterling k brown looks so cool in this movie and you know no offense to jacob tremblay the the young actor who is in that amblin esque opening of the previous trailer but opening miss trailer were stirring sterling k brown you know talking about how much of a bad ass he is basically a way better introduction to this world i think and yeah peter peter like you mentioned so violent and very much in line with what you would expect from an actual predator movie i've only seen the first predator from nineteen eighty seven i think i saw one of the alien vs predator movies i don't even remember which one those are basically useless so i'm not too fluent on the the deeper mythology either hd but this does look really cool i think the super predator which is what one of the fox representatives told me that they're calling that creature internally is is pretty huge it's way bigger than a norm predator which is like a pretty hefty beast and this thing i it seems like the this movie could be leading toward like a team up of the regular predators teaming up with the humans in order to in order to take down this super predator creature so i'm excited to see that because that's definitely i change of pace from you know what has happened in previous predator films and this definitely feels like a shame black movie to me which is what i'm excited about the most and this whole thing that shame black as the writer director behind this project or co writer i think he he co wrote it with fred dekker who caro the monster squad with him back in the eighties as well so yeah this this looks like a lot of fun i'm i'm totally in you kind of finally get some of his style in some of humor which i think was you really didn't get a sense of it in the first trailer and i don't know what do you guys think about like it seems like every franchise at some point this is the direction they go into where the go into the direction of the bad guy has to become the good guy and team up with the guys you know series yeah and like terminator yeah like is why do we keep on what why there's only so many ways to go right like you can't just recycle the same bad guys over and over and over again because it gets boring once you hit you know four or five movies in a franchise it's like well i guess you gotta go switch things up i think terminator was probably anomaly in.
