On the current state of scotland. The two thousand sixteen brexit referendum in which scotland voted strongly to remain in the eu. And boris johnson's twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Uk general election confirmed growing divide between how scotland and england see their respective futures. The scottish national party secured a fourth successive electoral victory in last month's scottish parliamentary elections but the path to independence is still far from straightforward. So where does the snp go from here in pursuit of that objective. We'll come onto that. But rory's piece begins with a comment margaret thatcher made in the nineteen eighties whereas she offered a vision of modernisation. She asserted her. Opponents wanted to turn the uk inter museum society. Rory rights thatcher underestimated the appeal of museum society labor overestimated last him.

They weren't so they had to move production to namibia to finish the movie instead. It's funny actually. Initially george miller said that he was planning on shooting a sequence in australia this summer in june because they wanted to take advantage of the higher tax incentives that they were offering and it was anticipated that they were going to be.

Vaccine withheld from hospital that gave Trump Tower shots
"Have to move on to this bombshell story. That blocked club first reported this week. Loretto hospital in austin before we get into all the impropriety here today. They said that they are reprimanding their coo and their ceo for these improper. Vaccinations kelly bauer. Do we know what reprimand means. In this case. I have to to politicians who are on the hospital's board of directors. And all they would say at the time was that we put out this statement. We're not going to elaborate on rep. What it means to reprimand so we are still trying to figure that out and see what could be happening to the ceo coo. Okay so the first story that you published here was that they the coo. Dr notion med has an apartment in trump tower about two and a half million dollar apartment and the hospital. That has these vaccinations for folks on the west side. Improperly administered vaccinations to trump tower employees. Is there any evidence of some sort of trade-off or exchange or how how this came to be well. We spoke to leto hospital and their ceo. George miller says that it was actually him who helped set up this event but what we found is that right or workers at trump tower told residents that it was loretto hospital that reached out to them now. Loretto hospital is saying that its workers who reached out to them. So it's very much a. He said she said situation. But the city's department said they are looking into it and investigating why these ineligible workers were able to get shots. Before other people and also ineligible were cook. County judges and guest preach judge that also got vaccinated. And there's some different answers onto how that happened. Even though those were not allowed in the current phase as well amanda vindicated. You look at the board of this hospital. As kelly mentioned there's to state lawmakers that sit on the board There's a state lawmaker. Camille lilly that works for the hospital. This is a hospital that gets tens of millions of dollars in reimbursements from the state's medicaid program. Is there a conflict of interest. Here that there can be this much clout on a hospital board. I mean those are certainly questions that were all asking. What sort of favors might members of the war getting terms of the vaccines employment whatnot. We're we're not saying that there is merely that these are the questions to ask in. This gets to something that we've talked about a lot as there's been a lot of corruption of course in springfield and that is that there are really lax economic interests statements conflict of interest rules in then again to place. Where have devil's advocate there. There are those who say it. Is it positive when you have. For example he state legislator employed by hospital because that brings along a expertise. This is a citizen legislature. It is technically a part time job and the reason for that being was because you want to bring in farmers dentists doctors people with all different sorts of knowledge so there are certainly two sides to that point but given kelly's reporting the trump tower. I think that's what it is. It's just it's it's the who got it because these are. There's a lot to look into here and kelly bars. You mentioned that the city's health department is investigating. They've halted vaccinations to that hospital. What do you anticipate. They're going to uncover in their probe. Well we've heard from multiple sources and people questioning why workers at trump tower who are able to get vaccinated and not other hotel workers now. We've also seen that. The ceo's church was able to get vaccinated. This doctor arwady. The head of the city's health department said today that they are investigating they will not be sending doses to loretto hospital until they are confident. Those doses are going to be appropriately.
Chicago's Loretto Hospital Board Takes Actions of Reprimand After Vaccine Controversy

"Just check it out at that website, quip stir dot net today. I'm going to be looking at the second part of our three part. Look into the Mad Max films. At least from the nineteen eighties, although the previous one was a nineteen Seventy-nine movie this one is in the nineteen eighties. The second film in the Mad Max trilogy. As it was known before Mad Max v road came out. It's called the road warriors from nineteen Eighty-one like the previous one. It is an R rated film does have strong violence route brief nudity, and some language run time is an hour and thirty five minutes Mel Gibson is the main star along with. Bruce, Spence a meal. Midi Mike Preston. Max v Vernon wells Virginia. Hey, and many others. George Miller returns as director. He contributes to the screenplay along with Terry Hayes, and Brian Hannett. Now, obviously, the road warrior is a follow up to the nineteen seventy nine film called Mad Max very simply it was called at the time Mad Max two in its initial release, in Australia, and many other countries where it had proved lucrative. However, in the United States, where the original was poorly distributed and barely seen by most American audiences. It was retitled to the road warrior primarily, because you would figure probably rightly that very few people would want to see a film called maks to if they've never even heard of Mad Max that alternate title of the road warrior has proven to take hold so that most countries call it by a more complete title mad Mex two colon the road warrior in order to avoid all confusion. However, being an American. I've always known this film, as the road warrior. So my apologies to those of you who are used to calling it Mad Max to this the same film. I just happened to call it by what I've always called it, there's narration here at the beginning, and end of this film at book, ends the road warrior it implies that, while all of this is set in a post apocalyptic future in which society's dependence on oil and other resources eventually leads to nuclear war, and the subsequent collapse of civilization, the events that we see in between the narration is set. Sometime in the past to the narration nevertheless, approximately five years after the events of Mad Max, which have set supposedly a few years into the future, no wife, no child, no job. No home. The road warrior fines, the titular hero, Mad Max himself just living from day to day with just his Australian cattle dog by his side in pursuit of scrounging up enough food, and enough gas to make it to the next instance of food and gas. Max's, wandering through the now lawless wasteland formerly known as Austrailia end up taking him to a fortified oil refinery, where there's plenty of precious fuel, but there's also a vicious gang of murdering marauders led by a hockey masked and muscle leader named Lord humongous. They wanna get their hands on that oil, and they give the residents and the ultimate him of imminent death, should they not comply with the demands of marauders, the colony at the oil refinery who were living there. They need to escape in a hurry. But they also want their fuel, and max strikes a bargain with them. He'll secure an abandoned big rig for them to haul their fuel in exchange for as much gas, as he can carry away in his car in the problem is that the marauders are not going to let anyone escape without a fight. That's the basic premise of this film. It's very simple premise, but there's so much more to the story then just the plot. I mean, this is a movie that is just a visceral experienced and sequels that are better than the original films. I would say are. Very few and very far between. But I do think that the road warrior is a prime example of one that is not only superior but it's almost without question for most people who see these two films back to back. It has a better story. It has more explosive action. It has crazier stunt work more, adept direction and more. Gorgeous cinematography and this time there is a score that actually enhances rather than detracts from the momentum of the film. It's a much more violent movie than the first one in terms of showing the actual violence on the screen. Interestingly, it was meant to be even more violent than what we see in the finished product because the Australian censors at the time requested at several of the more graphic acts had to be paired out in order to get released in the country, and in America, there were even a couple of more shots that were censored in order to get an amputee, A R rating. If you watch this video, you're probably seeing the more graphic Australian version, but the one that was completely well that version has never surfaced. At least not today. Date this film continues portraying max as an anti hero, perhaps, even more. So in this film, as he's no longer bound by his duty as a cop. And he's exceedingly reluctant, half the chew sides in this battle to come even though he clearly views, one side is good and one side as evil as with the original Mad, Max George Miller. Here is making his simple premise work by being edgy and unpredictable in the way that it carries out characters. Here are very fallible. Some that you think are slated to live by the end biting the dust before it's all over, and then there are few other surprises strewn about, although this is still a motor vehicle western in its story. George Miller hair takes less of a spaghetti, western stylistic approach than in his previous effort. He instead makes it more with traditional story elements from westerns like nineteen fifty three's Shane, especially in the feral kid character and in nineteen seventy five of boy, and his dog and on top of that he goes for more of the George Lucas, Steven Spielberg way of filming that was rampantly popular in the. Early nineteen eighties. He snatched, Lucas penchant for taking elements of a curious hours samurai films, something that Sergio Leoni had been enamored with as well for his westerns as well as his adherence to Joseph Campbell's hero's journey blueprint for storytelling. Injecting max into that basic formula. Miller was surprised to have learned how well the original Mad Max from nineteen Seventy-nine had translated to different languages and many cultures each of them who viewed the character of max through the lens of their own myths, and myth, making Miller felt that building upon that myth. That is common among us through Campbell's studies as developed in his the hero with thousand faces with only further the connection with people around the world to his character. Arc not only max but each character from humongous to the gyro captain, they would all have a rich backstory, develop that made them who they are by the time that we see them within the film, even though the backstory for each of these characters might never actually be explicitly expressed within the dialogue. The themes of the road warrior, encroach into well-trod western territory, mostly in the differential between communities who are striving for civilization and the uncivilized hord, complete with bows, and arrows, while the most notable one named Wes sports, a native American hairstyle known as the mohawk. They're out there in the untamed lands. They seek only to explain those who want to build up their way of life. This supposed good guys wear lots of white in contrast to the marauders, who are clad, mostly in black Mad Max being the exception of this rule because he's also dressed mostly in black. But he is the anti hero. These marauders are out there mostly to enrich themselves for the day. There's also a moment in this film in which the clan at the oil refinery are offered a bargain life and safety. If they just walk away and let them have their fuel a debate ends up erupting among the oil refinery, clan on the right path that they should go alternately. They decide to fight mostly because they realize that without a place to call home. They're going to end up no better than the marauders in the end. This is also implied by max. He's a former cop if you tack on continuity, with the first film anyway, who is now a do for self drifter, a of the spaghetti westerns that George Miller, sometimes uses as inspiration and the implications also extend to the leader of the villainous, gang Lord humongous, who rationalize is that his cutthroat way of life is the only way to survive now. And that they've all lost someone they loved to the scourge of anarchy originally humongous was meant to be revealed as goose from the first Mad Max film Mexicali on the police force, who would at least in that interpretation have completely surrendered, to the scum that he wants to down as an MFA P officer. However Miller eventually decided against explaining the origins of humongous explicitly on the screen by contrast, the leader of the oil refinery, clan Papa Gallo Papa Gallo being the Italian word for parrot. He also says that they've lost a lot to just like them. Marauders, but they are still human beings. They have dignity the only difference between them and the garbage outside as Papa Gallo says, is that they have not given up now as for Spielberg style alluded to earlier, the road were and raiders of the lost ark, which came out the same year. Feel very similar in the way that they're shot with these zooming close ups both films. Also feature extended battle sequence for control of a large, truck, although Miller's film, it's the main set piece of the climax, and that makes it the most important part of his films for Spielberg part. He liked George Miller's work in the road warriors so much that he ended up hiring him for his next production and that was directing the best arguably of the four stories four twilight zone. The movie nightmare at twenty thousand feet and ODA sequence. That trek siege Alta is with huge stakes for the film and for its characters with nail biting tension and intrigue, it culminates in one of the most memorable narrative turns and. Followed by one heck of an iconic shot of the battered hero as the film drifts off from its epilogue, not to create the look of a post apocalyptic world, the locale for filming would be this flyspeck town, about eight hundred miles west of city. It's mostly abandoned mining town called, Broken Hill, the mind that really established Broken Hill had been excavated of all the known or that could be extracted in that prompted most who live there to relocate to move away, for more employment or better way of life, the costs for shooting and staying there at Broken Hill, therefore was less expensive, although still the road warrior would end up becoming the most expensive Australian production to that date anyway. And the rundown nature of the mostly desolate environs fit in perfectly with the civilization on the decline nature of the story, as everyone was dressed in either punk rock, hairdos or fetishistic wardrobe. There were few around that would really question their appearance on an off the set especially as the town's REM. Meaning inhabitants actually worked in the road where as extras Mel Gibson here. He's as short hero as there has ever been boating. He only had sixteen lines of dialogue to utter. I would say the real star of the movie above and beyond. Just Mel Gibson is the stunt work, which is absolutely insane. It's really hard to believe Stumm in were not severely maimed or killed on the set on a daily basis given how dangerous and destructive. Many of these stunts looked to be. It's punctures and then some now it might be built on a thin comic book premise. But for all out action movie fans, it really does not get much more thrilling an exhilarating than the road warrior, George Miller when he was making the road warrior, really saw this as the end of Mad Max journey. He wanted to leave Mad Max his legacy as a drifter as unknown. But the financial success would see him return, several years later when semi adaptation of William Golding Lord of the flies following a group of kids who live in a post apocalyptic world the league. Miller's version that didn't pan out so Miller would eventually mold that screenplay into what would become Mad Max beyond thunderdome, George Miller would also revisit the road warriors structure, and its execution, again in Mad Max fury road, many years later, which is essentially a reinterpretation of the road warrior with higher production values. More pageantry and modern demotic underpinnings. It would also be proclaimed by some viewers as the best in this series and improbably even garnered an Academy Award nomination for best picture, as I mentioned in my previous episode, I am not going to discuss Mad Max for you wrote, it's way too far outside of the realm of the nineteen eighties. But I do encourage you to check out my podcast, the quick stir film, review podcast. There is a review of that, if you check through some of the older episodes, you will. Find it as far as what I'm giving the road warrior, I'm giving it three and a half stars out of four three and a half stars on my school means I do think this is a good movie. It's fantastic action picture. If you're of action. Fan, there's really probably nothing more exhilarating than watching the road warrior it is not with such great. I for cinema. Mel Gibson that is most appealing and it's just riveting from beginning to end. So I do encourage you to watch the road warrior, if you haven't seen it already. So three stars out of four is what I'm giving the road warrior. So obviously, I consider it the best of the Mad Max films. Even if you take into account Mad Max v road for a lot of reasons. But the next film, in this series is actually.

There's a real fetichism nation of automobiles in the car, sedate, Paris, and that really seems to play into what was happening in Mad, Max two was that just coincidental? Or was there kind of coal car culture in Australia? Is it because of things being so spread out, does the car become more important for Australians? No. That's interesting because. Roenick because often think 'cause we're not, not such a preoccupation in struggle with people is, is they appear to be on the on film note at all. Can you tell me a little bit about your role in the road warrior, or Mad Max two and how you kinda came to that? I bring how it was casting that in the sense that I just got a coal. I think he'd been costing for quite a while. And we'd be looking for the other roles and it was a one afternoon night, and is it rang and said, look get yourself to costing I- blah, blah, because George Miller like to talk to you about a film, and, and you've got an appointment to there. What was late in the day? So and arrived said all his script here, and it was sort of almost like coal, read, and actually, I cannot recall. I just went for. About an hour. So if I could have been a launch other people were coming in for roles. And, and so I came back. I think I was the last person that die, and I just, just did my, what dishing, and I think I because I was called, I actually put the script down and sort of improvise some of it, too. We did a couple of scenes is, and I'm sort of new, George admit before they. So we were familiar with one another, but I had no idea I hadn't seen the max. I wasn't quite aware once again, you know, this is sort of surreal, kind of as playing here in to, to undo you know, I didn't really understand much about the film at all. But I just playing this character in this situation and I was I was pretty spontaneous. What I was doing when a why didn't hear anything for quite a while thought, I'll that one then fun co came. And once again from. And Georgia to go tomorrow. Forget, my was but and what's a couple of movies with Mel. Oh, that's interesting. And so we went and saw two films that really interesting because you can see the impact that they had on Mexico. I think, and that was one was shine with Alan lead. I don't know if you've seen that, but that's one of the great conic films. And there's a lot of shine and the road warrior thing, and, you know, JIMBO by Chris our which is which became a fistful of dollars. That's the sort of ripped off. Jim bevan? It's more if you can, if you if you see that movie identical to this full Domos. And so we saw those two film. So about this liner in the town. You've got the same similar situations in China, Jim. And we had a chat. You know talked about so. I still didn't I had the part..

"And it like this is what brings joker to that point. That like, you know, I it's a point where I think, you know, sense those two characters, and, you know, very opposite directions. So it could be interesting. But these are also not big actors. So it I don't expect like, you know, there to be a sequel starring these these two right, right? Yeah. I think you're probably right about that. And you know, we don't even know if there's going to be a sequel to this movie at all it's split to be the first of the the Warner Brothers in DC films sort of like non canon like non normal, continuity, timeline DC movies. So these are as far as we know these are basically consider one offs. But I guess if any of them. Does major box office. They could always come back for another sequel. I don't think anybody over a DC knows exactly what's going on at this point. Anyway, it's, but let's move on to our final story in that is George Miller has finally found his fury road. Follow-up? Chris tell us about it. Yeah. The film is called three thousand years of longing. And it's apparently eight epic romance. Starring Idris Elba until the Sweden. And it's about a, gene. And that's all we know. We don't know who's playing the genie. It could be either of those actors could be completely different actor. We really don't know. And I could totally see address L buys genie. Yeah. He he'd be a good genie. And. So I think till the swing would also be good. They're both actors who could do really good jobs as genie's. And so maybe that's why they were cast for this film. The only real details. We have other than that is that supposedly unlike any film, George Miller has made before but that sort of sums up his career. I mean, just his career is very active. I mean, he has the Mad Max films. He has happy feet. He has babe pig in the city. He has the witches of Eastwick. Like, none of those movies are anything like each other. So it just seems like this is par for the course. And I'm excited. I'm glad he's working in. I wish it hadn't taken so long. But I'm very excited to see whatever he does next. Yeah. Me too. So we don't know if this is like an adaptation of the Arabian nights kind of Aladdin story. No, there's really it's really all under wraps. I mean, the story first broke all we knew was the title. And then a few hours later, we learned that it was about a genie and who was going to be in it. But that's really. All we know at at this time. Then any thoughts on this? I'm hoping both of them are playing genie's than it's like a they're trying to get to each other. Well, having different masters, you know, with around the globe and all of that stuff. That would be pretty quiet. I think it's really awesome that we have no idea which of these two actors is going to be a team you like the idea that that it's equally viable for both of them to play genie's is still sort of all areas to make. Yeah. Now, I'm really curious. What this is that? I don't know. I'm curious. It's also interesting that a usually we don't get a project like this announcement where already has like a slate of actors and stuff like they've kept this pretty quiet, which is kinda strange because everybody's been wondering what George Miller was going to do after fury road. But I I think we're all excited, right? Yeah. In Kristen, Dino, the if these original reports made any references to the Mad Max franchise, like I know that George Miller sort of had this on again off again thing with a an actual Mad Max fury road sequel. Is there any mention of that anywhere? There's no there's no on that. I mean, and as this film, it doesn't even have like a home yet. There's no distributor yet. So it's very early stages. But it's supposedly he's going to start filming this next year. So I if there is going to be a new mad Mad Max film. It's not going to be in a while. Well, that brings us to the end of today's slash them daily..

"It's not easy to get these movies made, you know, and that's like a whole fucking grind in itself, just maintaining the optimism of like, all right. I'm gonna spend ten years trying to schmooze rich people to make this movie. Yeah, you know, that's that's offers villa, you know? Oh, absolutely. One hundred percent. This movie made shitload of money. Oh, yeah. It was a much a cultural phenomenon. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, it didn't make Infinity war money, but nothing does. Yeah, it's funny because then you think is that a successful film? I, it's so shitty that the movie business now makes you think unless you make a billion dollars now because remember one hundred million dollars you didn't billion. I'm but relative to its its size, it didn't go very well. I just remember back in the damn it was like one hundred million was the benchmark that was a blockbuster movie, and now it's like one hundred million. That's a fly solo makes one hundred million in like a week and it's like the racers. I know it's fucking our guys. We're going to move into the mail bag. We got one question this week from Jacob's since we have the whole matrix crew here, it's going to be about the matrix. So it's actually not specific the matrix, but he said, what disappointed me about your conversation was that you'll never ask the question. What are some other SCI fi films that tackle huge philosophical questions, but do so in a way that works filming cly, what do you guys think. I think like blade runner is a is a is a key. One of those. I haven't really watched blade runner twenty forty nine. So I don't really know. I mean two thousand one works in its own way, but I wouldn't say that it's it's as watchable as something like later on. I mean, they originally matrix is a perfect example of this snow piercer snow Pearson, super one. That that he did about the hippo lookin thing? Oh, Audra refusal washout rules. Yeah, that's function one of my favorite filmmakers, but someone told me that this movie turns you vegan and I'm like, well, not seeing it. Most watchable what he said a what are other SCI fi films that tackle huge philosophical questions, but do so in a way that works Phil McLean here. Here occupies a good one movie that's about to come out. James Cameron's alita battle angel, looking forward to that hail yak. You know, look at that movie without uncanny valley, like creeping me out and I don't wanna see that's part of the movie. You know the caney valley. So while it's not being marketed if then, because I'm just looking at this, I'm seeing action movie. I can't really look at this thing girl robot thing without feeling uncomfortable. I'm not gonna see this movie. Oh, dude. This is x. Makina would be goal. Fuck. Yeah. And Blom camps district nursing. You mean just like the best movie? I love it so much. I've actually published a paper on this little promo shop he, no, but chappy in the whatever that one was with with Matt yet. So I thought those were both movies that could have been so great and they just weren't and I was it was crushing. I did cry on choppy at both of them, but that doesn't make them brilliant. I mean, are you going to start with that shit on modest Alec was here. Oh, you are my Star Trek fan. I am. So, I mean, isn't that like what is people like academics? Love to talk about start the movies, do it. I think the series for sure same thing with battle star galactica. I mean, if you want to get into television, don't even get me started. But yeah, there's a lot of science fiction, television that is really, really, really focused on philosophical well in a way signed club but clubs, another great one. Well, yeah. I mean, what? What are we thinking of. Sorry, but he kind of a go. Yeah, it's not. But like what's the real world monkeys? Twelve monkeys. Is that Terry Gilliam? Yeah, yeah. I feel like fi in general, as a gene RA is inherently about speculating on the future. It's about escaping this world and creating the new or transforming the world, or pressing the scope of the imagination or whatever. So it's kind of all inherently, at least at a latent level political or philosophical, or cultural or something. We've just aimed a bunch of films that do that..

"I think like you said he set up a world in his. He's got his finger on the cultural pulse obviously. But at the same time, he's like, I'm gonna make the most bad ass action fucking movie that I can and it just it's almost like it happened because of the cultural moment in because of his seventy years of life maybe and because of the influence is it just kind of came out this, I think, and I don't want to discredit him, but I feel I think it's interesting that you can have a movie, right? Because I think a lot of people think that you can if you can have an action movie or you can have a thoughtful movie, but you've got to pick right. You can't have an action movie. That's also going to be really thoughtful and Mabel to make political or social statements. But this movie is just like unequivocably doing both and so good at both. There's not a second of dole exposition and nothing is wasted like not a single, not a single shot. Not a single look. Not a single word. Is wasted throughout the entire thing. Christopher Nolan is probably the guy that we may be. Yeah, most that did this with the dark Knight energy. Right? But I almost successfully successfully successfully, right. I mean, I guess maybe the cow skis with the first matrix, but that is just so exposition, heavy just suck into are just, yeah, it, yeah. And then kind of retroactively almost discount. Sorry. But even then with the with the Nolan took skies. Even then with the Nolan movies still nowhere near as efficient as efficient. This has to be the most crazy if it when you kinda like the ratio of like, yeah, like intelligent conversations that can be had about it to amount of exposition that generate those thoughts. It's amazing how much footage was cut from this, right? Like upon? Yeah, like didn't take a bunch of years to me. And and that's why, when we're talking about like the feminist part of the movie, it's like and how it was kind of felt very timely like this movie could've come out leaving any anytime in the last fifteen years. They've been trying to make it for long. It's kind of like, imagine this movie coming out in two thousand five. You know, it's like I feel like receive differently. You know. But I'm glad took me to like Walt Whitman. I think I think it's one that said, I'm sorry, this is so long. I didn't have time to edit it shorter, right. I love that. And that's like, yeah, because you know, when you write a paper when I write a, you know something for publication. It starts off at like fifty five pages, and then I cut it down to twelve and that twelve is just like Thakin best. So of course, yeah. He's, he must've shot like fifty times that much footage and he was just like, we are going to cut cut cut for ten years or something. Sandstorms fucked it up. Shows and they filmed it all in Australia. They were because unlike Charlie's there in Tom hardy hate each other apparently and all these like drama. Yeah, go read about it. Why? Why? The clash of titans egos. I don't know. Yeah. Who's film is this. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, because that's also so I think the old Matt maxes they don't really make sense while you follow this one, this one hero. I mean, you don't really pay much attention to the shit. He gets into. He just wanders in and out of people's lives and you're like, yeah, right onto the next one following this guy through the desert. But this one really made it seem like, like I mean, for me, it seemed like thrown and her mission. We're like the, they were the real story and he was just kind of like really popular, handsome extra who was in it for a lot of head to head really great grunts and could really like communicate with it. But it was. It seemed like it was their story and have in road warrior. Yeah. Well, because it is kind of similar like it's like, you know, a whole town has their own story..

"It's always just the greed of man, you know led to a bomb, but it is also strange that there are very few if any people of color in the film, even though it's supposed to take place in Australia in this movie. Okay. Yeah. Only in like this, the the sea of crowd of juicy solo Zoe, Kravitz who does she play? She's she's wanting to, and then there's another woman who is darker. But I don't know if she is just really tan. I mean, she's been out in the sun for decades, so yeah. Yeah, maybe she spent. Yeah, but Zoe Kravitz is the obviously Lisa beneath. It's certainly not making the kind of counter cultural statement that the matrix reloaded very deliberate use of people of color. Yeah. Let's talk about diesel punk. So punk is the the what I've been told that the way of seeing this movie being described, it's like an emphasis on the big clunky, artillery just week ill. Punk festival. That's right. He was just lived Mad Max. I did. I was just in fury road for about a week spraying your face, but that silver shit and getting a little trunk. Got fucked up a couple of things. I find interesting about this. I love how they've kind of reappropriated like pagan like worship terms to like diesel or tech stuff. So like the guy who has all those bullets around him is called the bullet farmer. And yeah, it was the names if you go to just like fucking Wikipedia and shit people. Yeah, someone called them bullets, grantee seed. I think that's so interesting how you know like a pagan will worship the earth. They worship diesel technology and metal and stuff. And like I feel like this movie is like sound of engines, roaring porn, you know. And I feel like that in a meta way you can hit the meta button that's the wrong one. Yes, we have a problematic, but. I don't know where that one way I had requested from people on Twitter that were saying, you'd better say problematic. So I'm just problematic. But like the fact that we enjoy this movie so much almost like speaks to the message of the film. You know, like if like we're in the theater and we hear those diesel engines roaring in those scenes and we're just like, yeah, we kind of get like aroused by them and I it similar to the warship that the characters are experiencing. I definitely like like I the the energy from all the war boys whenever. Like just going into it, you're like, wow. On their side. Yeah. It still it? Yeah, witness me. But no, that's true. Man. I see when I see this movie like they're all these other readings we could talk about like sort of Marxist analysis or feminist criticism. But for me, I cannot get away from like a psychoanalytic reading about desire and the production of desire and and how you have these fantasies that are erected in all of this whole system is a system of signification that is supposed to justify in reinforced the what Lucon would refer to as the master signifier, which is like it's the signifier that has no signified, but it begins the chain of signifying. So let's just say it's like the empty placeholder that starts the whole idea of meaning itself. Right? And that's imortant Joe. He kind of is the the symbol of the master signifier in this whole fucking movie, like all the testosterone shit, all the dude shit all the fantasies about women all the nature technology stuff. All of that kind of like fills in this philosophical psychoanalytic reading about like a system of desiring production and imitation management over resources, which are there like used. To just create more desire. I think it's fucking genius, man, but I literally think it can you imagine? Yeah. I mean, like the the, the amount of dialogue that that basically creates this very alive, socio economic status quo. That can be right analyzed through all these different lenses is amazing. Yeah, my preferred in the greeting of the film is the analytic idea of how do I make the coolest card. What can I do to just, you know, make people while the honesty. So we were talking earlier, like how much did George Miller sit down and say, the designing principle of this film is going to be this like cultural analysis and critique. I think you're right. Dude..

"It looks like it's not twenty four twenty five frames, and it looks like it's like sixty or something because or it sped up, maybe just a tick because it especially there's there's a bit when when max is in the Jeff rock and it's like it's very beginning, but it kind of adds talking. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. So I don't know. I really liked that there was so little dialogue yet so much story. I mean, yeah, it was pretty remarkable. I mean, I think it just goes to show that the directing was phenomenal and that the actors. Were so good that they, they were dislike. We're just gonna let you be awesome and communicate all these things with subtle glances or right with very, very subtle gestures. You don't even have to say very much. So I was just struck as I was watching this movie, how powerful and packed, right? The story was, but how those luckily. Italy's best, Tom hardy grunting movie. Because he grunts what was the DiCaprio, bear movie revenue revenue. He, he's, he grunts in that Brunson law, he does. Yeah. Banes of grunter. Yeah, I like him more when he grunts like I've seen the trailer for whatever the fuck event. Dude, it looks what part of New York is he from? He sounds weird accents talk. He Welsh accent and apparently like from Welsh people, you can correct me if I'm wrong Welsh people. But from what I ready, it's actually okay. And he's good at like transforming himself, but this accent the whole trailer. I was like, bro? Yeah, you're the new trailer, I think, looks bad. I bet the the full trailer where you get to see like a comedy section. Yeah, because I feel like there's there's, you know, a very little story in this movie. I, it's more just like there's so much packed into the like, like y'all are talking about like every there's some. It's so much so dynamic. You know what I mean? Because you get they don't have to explain the story, but we get so much out of it. But then, yeah, I just George Miller man. Yeah, really our guys move on wanna, give a shout to our sponsors over at better help so better help us online counselling service. This one's pretty dear to me. I know that when people are in a low point in life seeking therapy can often..

"Maybe it's production, but he has control of the water, which is everything. Well, this I mean, I mean like womb as on. All right. And so at one point, right when the wife is there, he's he'll insurances. That's my baby, right? So it's it's this way of taking ownership of the women's bodies because they are literally the means of producing life at that point, and they're the only ones who could produce life. And so I think it kind of strips. A lot of a lot of, I don't know a lot of shiny stuff away from patriarchy to just be like, look at the end of the day, here's the deal. We produce babies and people need that shit. And then a post. Elliptic society. You need to control that or your fucked, and and so that these women are in a vault, right? It's not just significant because they're women and men like to treat women a certain way, but also because they're literally the means of production, and he's he's literally controlling in terms of like how like much George Miller, you know, construc- on this. Is these things like like, do you just speculation? Do you do? Do you feel like it's a feminist metaphor for like, this is like the patriarchy in this means this is or is it like this is the end extreme where our current system would take us if sting is, is it like a cautionary tale? Like where. I guess how the feminist critique really li- like, where do you think George Miller actually thinks about this stuff? I just kind of think that I mean for my two cents, I think that he built this idea of a post apocalypse and peace asked himself what would men and women's roles, how women and our men and women marginalized in society today. And if there is this. Yes, we'll just amplify it to what would happen if there were limited resources, what would we still value then will revalue their ability to be battle fodder. And with women, we value their ability to reproduce and it just naturally became kind of a statement. You don't think it's him looking around going, you know what? Look at this patriarchal system. I'm going to make a Mad Max movie about, who knows? I think it. I mean, I think it's kind of what we're getting. He might not have been in. I don't know if he was like, you know, this is going to be a feminist manifesto in any sense, but I think he was super cautious or he was super attentive to the way that bodies are used today. And he thought, I mean in sort of cautionary way. Like if this society ended, how would the people in the society and up figuring things out afterward and they would do it according to these patriarchal norms coding, mend being fodder women being bodies. So yeah, whether he intended it to be some kind of thing we could go on about or bringing lots of feminist philosophers to, I don't know, but I do think it really accurately was like, if this. Society crash, you know, there'd be lots of other societies. If they crashed, you would not and having those sorts of structures because that's not the way philosophically we've organized ourselves. So it's not gonna be the end result like post-apocalyptic that might not happen, but an ARA society, that is the way we think about bodies. That's the way we think about owning stuff, right? Like those are all paradigms that are pretty culturally specific. And so I don't think you would find that kind of paradigm in every post-apocalyptic literature. I mean, you don't there lots of post apocalyptic literature. Is that imagine things otherwise. So in that sense, I do think it's at at at once just kind of a natural result of this system, but also than a critique of the system. At the same time, I would say probably was just like critique of the system, and then it just kind of turned out like it did. I if I had to give one major a critique of this movie, it's that I believe at the beginning isn't there like a tie, a tech screen or something, or or or voice over the says, like four isn't..

"Show me at greats dot com. And on with the show. So. So the first. Thing I thought about when I was watching this this time which I hadn't thought about before was Dera and fell logo centrism. Oh yeah. And this idea of a reversal of these join? Yeah, we will so so fellow go centrism is a port Monto of fallow centrism and logos interests and fallow. Centrism we'll say logo centrism is the idea that history has been dominated by the word and it usually is kind of understood is like judgmental reason, like determining kinds of logic. Yeah, right. And so so that was a criticism of Derrida. And then another criticism is that this idea that history has also been conditioned by what we would call maybe in the current present moment, like a patriarchal logic, but it's even more than that. It's more about this idea of a particular fallow Centric has unlike the fallacy and Freud's Oedipus complex that is kind of conditioned the desiring conditions of of western society in particular. So he brings them together and he creates this word called foul logo centrism. But he does that to sort of like deconstruct the binary of. Of of male, female man, woman as Derrida does deconstruction, right? So I'm looking at this movie and I'm thinking, all right. So you have these these, like total masculine dudes, and like they're spraying their face with fucking drugs, and they got these crazy weapons and it's like testosterone, right? And then you have these women who are like they're made in the image of a man's desire their, they're to be breeders and they're wearing white because they're pure and they're the beautiful models like it's what's her name hunt Huntington, Rosie, Huntington Whitley or whatever. Her name is name of the wives. The one that dies I went into pregnant pregnant. Yeah. Yeah. Rosie, Huntington Letelier, whatever names but anyway, and so you get these women, but then you have Ferro CEO who is kind of standing in between and challenging these gender binary. And then of course, at the end, she kind of ends up on top and the movie's called Mad Max. But really, she's kind of protagonist, and so it's almost like an overturning. I don't know if George Miller meant this, but it's like a criticism of this foul ago, Centric logic of determining of masculinity, and then you get like a like almost sort of like, hey, galions synthesis at the end. Okay. So you got me what the Hegel thing, but I would say I largely so I would say the probably like the biggest thing that's happening. You know, when this movie came out, there was a lot of talk about like having kind of like feminist slants to it, but right. And I think that that's definitely there. So let me just go through some of the things. So like obviously the women are largely objectified in this movie. That's like the whole thing is that the the wives are constantly saying we're not objects were plentiful. We're not things. Yeah, that's what they say. So the women are known as breeders. They're even kept in a giant Bank vault, like you would another like precious assets at one point. Yeah, property got yet got to protect the assets. There are other women that are milked cows to to make mother's milk. There's writing on the wall that says, we're not things or Morton. Joe is constantly brings. As their treasures. So obviously, and then, yeah, in in contrast bureau says, just like the ultimate bad ass. Yeah. Yeah, but I have point on, I mean, yeah, sure. Their models and they're so skinny. They probably don't even meant straight, like let alone be able to produce. They should have been like a little heftier but but yeah, they're not like damsels in any sense. They're pretty knowledgeable than how to load guns there. Right? So they're also not really portrayed. They might be lovely, but they're portrayed as kind of being prepared to take risks and handle themselves and fight if need be and risk themselves in some way. So I also think that's worth even though yeah, their models and whatever. So because you know. So that's interesting because some people that criticize it and they said, no, it's not really a feminist film because they're still fitting into these..

No. I mean, I say that babe is to the best baby movie. I mean, it's a ridiculous babe movie. But I mean, it's just crazy that he made it the Mad Max Phil, right? So yeah, this movie just came out of fucking nowhere for me. I mean, they took him like fifteen years to make it and you kind of like it's one of those do we need another Mad Max movie. There's been three, the third one sucked kind of why we go back to that and against. Yeah. Like I mean, George Miller give all credit to him that he had this vision of basically a two hour long, single actions, car chase sequence. That works against all odds. And like you said, it has all these really interesting themes that aren't president other action movies, and I think it does kind of even though it is one chase sequence, it kind of is trying to say stuff like that we can break down. So I, I love this movie. Yeah, me too. And there's a fucking dude playing guitar. Like lame. This might be the first movie that we've done together that we all like. Right. That's true. That's certainly not. But. Well, we all like the matrix. We all love the matrix. The first one. Yeah. Yeah, but the second and third guy, STAN. Let's third ones we have mixed feelings about because I actually, I enjoyed the conversation. So I feel like now. Okay. What do you think about the second matrix so be like, yeah, it's interesting. It would be like it's a superhero of the left. Someone asked me if they should watch. I said, just listen to the wise Craton podcasts about it no way, No no way way. they would be able to follow what we're talking to me. And you see the movie new still barely follow with anyway. We love Mad Max Mad, Max. I love this movie. I saw in two thousand fifteen when it came out and I was blown away. I don't really even know what I was expecting. You know, the weird thing is, is that I remember when it came out everyone was talking about, oh my God. This is a reaffirmation of practical effects and rewatching it. I was like, wait a second. This isn't really look as practical as I remember. Now, granted like a lot of like cars, crash and stuff. All practical. All looks awesome. All you know, thank God for that stuff. Maybe it's been a couple, maybe. Have there been other movies recently that have done more practical stuff. Of the raid on mission impossible. Five. I just saw maybe I have that kind of in my head, but yeah, a fast and furious movies do that practical side though. Some of the car crashes are probably maybe. I mean there's something so glorious about a slow motion car going in, like all these pieces of where that you really can't. You can't capture with CGI, but that's storm totals. Yeah, yeah. I remember this movie didn't get nominated for best picture and it came out in January of that year something something like that where it's always pretty impressive. If a movie comes out early in the year and is not an Oscar type movie, kinda like get out. Get out, came up super early that year and then just stuck with people. People remembered at all the way up until Oscar season which is rarely happens. I mean, I don't remember if it did get nominated, but I know that it made a lot of year end top shape. Broader audience than some of the last Mad Max and not. Yeah, that. So that makes it stick out like people are expecting a certain kind of Mad Max, and then they everybody got him at max. They could like like, that's not worthy. Absolutely our guys, let's go into a recap. So in a post, apocalyptic wasteland, a wonder, known as max is captured and brought to the citadel run by imortant, Joe, a sickly tyrant who lords over the impoverished by controlling the water supply and anointing himself. God Josephine's abandoned is devoted war boys and their leader emperor Imperatore impaired. I don't know what it is furious to get more Gaza, lean and bullets, but furious of yours off course and Joe realizes she's betrayed him. She's taken his sex slash fertility slaves as stowaways and plans to liberate them. So Joe rallies, a new team to pursue Furioso, including war boy, nuts, who desperate for glory brings max along as a blood bag and pursues Furioso through a.

He loves Australian cinema, so he loves George Miller. So he was like, this is fucking amazing. So I had crazy. I expected going in and actually for once exceeded my expectation. I thought I literally every time I watched this now, I'm like, this is the best action movie ever like this in the raid to are like on another level man. Oh, cool. I'm glad to hear you say that about the raid to. I've seen the raid one. I actually never seen the right. Come on. Raid one, but I love them both both. Excellent. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Are what are you Rebecca? Oh, my God. I mean, I let well, first of all, I want an expecting like traditional Mad Max stuff, and I was just so surprised that Furioso ended up being how central is she was and that there was so much like female dominated action in the film. It was just, it was so surprising an awesome. So I mean, talk about exceeding expectations. I mean, I went and being like, all right, this is just another bro movie for the guys who action. And I love. I say that it doesn't somebody who really likes action films, so I just found it so cool. And so interesting seen all the other Mad Max movie. Yeah. Okay. I mean, I hadn't for a while, but yeah. Yeah, I've actually only other of only seen road warrior the first one second one.

We're going to do butter back breast free. Do you remember the combo. Combo? Yeah. And they do at the Olympics, does a resume across do small, Russian that the Pacific I hard. So as anyone ever has anyone ever swamped with a boner. It would probably help because then you'd float. Has anyone ever has anyone seen them how they put shares new song super trouper by the way I met share. But as anyone seen the remix, they did have shares new song super trouper to the end of Titanic is amazing. So someone on YouTube is just like this needs, we'll tell us about share because everyone's grow. She's a b. e. a. us to. I. Voiced whites? No, she is like stunning. So beautiful. So sweet everything. You wish she is. Oh, yeah, for sure. And and just like, listen, there's nothing better than seeing someone. This is what I realized about her. And as we were talking, she was sort of explaining it. But like she has no one has ever had faith in her. She can win an Oscar and then no one wants for an acting job. He was talking about how during which is Eastwick one of the best if you haven't that's movie under talk about the director, George Miller who ended up doing Mad Max, George Miller directed that movie and he called her before right before the began shooting. And so two, Jack Nicholson, and they were like, you're too old to do this. You're to interest forty. They're like, you're too old to be in this movie, Jack Nicholson exc-. Both of them are saying this to her and she they were like in, you're not a good actress and she was like, I don't think she'd won the Oscar quite yet. She was about to, but she had already been. Dated for an Oscar for silkwood. She won the canfield festival for mask as she was. She's just somebody who constantly had to prove it. And I, that's what made me think like, no wonder, gay people, marginalized people are attracted to you because everyone says not you throughout the years. Everyone says you're dead, you're dead. It's over. It's over and for whatever reason it's never is. She was like Warner Music. Every time I doubt after I'd have a hit album of whatever record company drop me. They just like, we're like, you're done, you're done. You're not. It's insane. She's the best. I wonder why she never opened her own production company or we're just like, fuck you. I'm getting out of the system all start my own system. I like maybe laziness addicted to proving it. Yeah, laziness. Do you think though she was dreaming she was exactly what you'd want and she just told you the way it was sushi. Straight up was that she didn't like her own music. I was like, she's doing this Abba covers it. Is there an artist you like to cover here? She was like, I hate my like, I think it's terrible, and it's. She was like, I can't believe mama. Mia, to was even ahead. Awesome. She was great anyway, we're going on tour and then I share won't be there well, but the essence of her never tell you who will be there and by the way, special appearances, we announce this yet by Lauren Bacall by Mondo by perhaps the Easter bunny and by Barbra Streisand and male champi their male chip will be there.
