Here's San Francisco fed president Mary Daly speaking in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. Starting point is the SCP putting it between 5 to 5 and 5.5 if memory serves. That's a reasonable place to start. But we're going to need to go in and imagine as the data roll in is do we need to go higher or can we stop a little earlier? I think something above 5 is absolutely in my judgment going to be likely. But when I say absolutely going to be likely, I still have uncertainty bands around that, but that's where I'm putting it right now. Meantime, Atlanta fed chief Raphael bostick also sees 5 to 5 and a quarter percent for raising interest rates. He thinks that would help squeeze demand out of the economy. China saw a quarter of a million travelers enter the country on its first day of trading.

But again, the old cocktail really for growth has always been infrastructure spending. And oftentimes, the provinces, the local governments, they have to provide certain levels of growth.

So what we're hearing from sources is that authorities in Beijing are discussing special local government bond quotas to be increased to a record high of ¥3.8 trillion that's 560 billion U.S. dollars higher than the previous record of ¥3.75 trillion. Essentially, I think, like I said, growth is the priority. Debt loads for now be damned. Steven engel Bloomberg chief north Asia TV correspondent.

AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
AJ on Why Jeremy Renner Lived With His 'Friend' During His Marriage
"And basically when Jeremy Renner's divorce battle was heating up a few years ago, his buddy claimed that renner's estranged wife was extorting him, her name is Sonny Pacheco. She was extorting him and this guy says she only married him for a green card. And basically it was an arrangement that he and renner were very suspicious of. And listen, these guys certainly come across as being gay lovers. There's nowhere else. There's no one else to put it. And that's, I know a hypocritical coming from me, a guy who's lived with men before I was married, but this is a little different. You know, they know each other a long time, these guys, his name is Christopher winters. And when does it run or live together as roommates during much of render's 11 month marriage? They still were together. And I got a question a movie star still living with his buddy. I'm sorry. Once you make it, you kind of set your buddy up someplace else. Put him close by if you want. But no, it's like when Hugh Jackman has his trainer stay in the room in their home. Okay. And this room is quite a ways away from where Hugh Jackman's wife sleeps. You get the point.
"hugh jackman" Discussed on Awards Chatter
"Hi everyone and thank you for tuning in to The Hollywood Reporter's Tony nominees roundtable. I'm Scott feinberg and so thrilled and privileged to be joined by 5 outstanding performers who have all been nominated for Tony wars, which will be presented at the 75th Tony Awards on June 12th. Let's introduce them. First, Hugh Jackman, a best actor in a musical nominee for the music man in which he plays Harold hill and American con man who shows up in river city. Also now Ruth negga, a best actress in a play nominee for Macbeth, in which she plays the conspiratorial platter lady Macbeth, Mary-Louise Parker, best actress in a play nominee for how I learned to drive in which she plays a little bit. Woman reliving childhood mostly at the hands of her uncle. Sam Rockwell, best actor in a play nominee for American buffalo in which he plays the talkative hustler teach. And Jesse Williams the best featured actor in play nominee for take me out in which he plays a baseball star who comes out as gay. Thank you all so much for taking time out of your off day. I know this is precious time on when you're working as hard as you guys are. So great to have you. Everyone represented at this table is here for a revival, which I found just kind of something we might want to talk about. Some of these are shows that go back decades, even centuries, in some cases, and all have previously been done on Broadway, except for how I learned to drive, which was done off Broadway. So I'd like to begin by asking each of you if we can just talk about what led you to sign up for these parts and why now was the time to revive these particular shows. So Hugh, can we start with you? Wow, the first thing I ever did was the music man at high school. I was 14. So it's been there somewhere. At my school, you weren't allowed to be in the show until you were in grade 9, so I was 14. And I absolutely loved I fell in love with the whole thing. So somebody I was sitting there and for many years, I would say 15 years, the idea of doing the music man at some point was bandied around or I was thinking about it or people would nudge me or someone said, oh, you just got to do that and so I was like, oh, yeah, yeah. And maybe yeah, maybe I don't know when and I remember the day, I don't know why, but I just went the music man, it was about four years ago. And also not damn, I'm almost 50 damn. I think I might have missed the boat. And I felt this immediate urgency. And so I rang my agent who weirdly had had a call that day. Inquiring about me doing music. Wow. So that's how it happened. And I don't know why. It's something rings faintly for many years, and you think, oh, one day, maybe one day, and then all of a sudden there was an urgency to do it. So that was for me, I guess. In terms of why now, and let's just note it was first done in 1957 with Robert Preston in the royal year playing. You've been, of course, very associated with the musical genre, but it's actually been almost 20 years since people asked saw you on Broadway in one. So just in terms of the why now, I'm a little surprised that first of all, I'm surprised I mean, a musical I started I'm just an actor who somehow stumbled in to musicals. In fact, when I was in Beauty and the Beast, the first musical, it was in my contract that I had to have a singular once a week, which they paid for. I was, yeah, so and it's been a wonderful diversion, which I've loved. And been very surprising to me, but when I went back this time, I was like, I'm not going to leave at 18 years. There's a lot of muscles that you need for a user. Is that boy from Oz, you did before? Yeah. You were fucking up. You were amazing. Thank you, man. So it's been a long time, and I'll try not to live it that long. Yeah, please not. And just to clarify, you've been back on Broadway, but in place. So now I can tell you about your musical. Mary Louise, you have been on Broadway since 1990. Most recently in the sound inside, which we were so great in and one Tony for that. Just technically, I guess, a season ago, even though it's all these seasons are all skewed by COVID. But it was actually off Broadway as we referred to earlier 25 years ago that you first appeared in how I learned to drive. And I wonder if you can talk about just that, what's that? I was not very good at math, but I think recently I said it was 35. But I think it works out, but that would make me much different age. Well, but just to note, I mean, this is Paula Vogel's semi autobiographical play. I think that's the fair term. Somehow, she's talked about it. And you are back with the same costar, David Morse, the same director, Mark brokaw, another company member, Johanna day. Unusual thing to go back to a project. Highly unusual. Yeah. I think pretty much from, I have a picture of myself standing on the street right after the last show. And from that day, I think I wanted to go back and I was plotting some kind of like, I just wasn't finished with it. I don't know if I ever feel finished with anything place. And every time I've gone back to do something, I've had a similar fear that what was there won't be there or that it will be, I don't know, that it won't maintain what it had before, but it always seems to distill it into something stronger. Which in some ways it has and in some ways I was much younger than so there's that element I don't have going for me. But I think since pretty much we left, I wanted to do the play again. I never it just took a very, very long time to arrange everyone. And it's interesting though because you've said that, I guess, around the time of the first run, there was a thing in The Village Voice where they covered theater two tougher uptown was all about the show, which was done up Broadway. Here we are. I don't know what that says about what's happened to us as a society in 25 years or whatever, but it's interesting. I thought there would be a different response. I was concerned there might be a slightly different response to it because we're so polarized right now and everything is so black and white. And this place all about gray area. And it's really moving to me that the audiences seem to allow for that. Yeah. Yeah. Sam, you made this one little anecdote. You reminded me, I remember listening to an audiobook when I was a drama school of Sir John Gilbert, and he talked about doing Hamlet. I think he did a professionally 8 times. And he said, I never felt finished with it, and he always felt that he could do something better. And at the time of recording the audiobook, he said, and I look back and he said, damn it. I think it was best the first time. That's so funny. Is that funny? I've done many places more than once. Someone.

"And put happiness habit in the subject line and that always you write to the top of my inbox. And so many people have been saying the same thing, which is that what was surprising to them was that they had to think about the thing that they might do that day that could make them happy. It doesn't have to be the same thing every day, by the way. And a few people have been saying how, actually, even just realizing that they didn't know what that one thing could be, just one thing. And there's no pressure. It can be for ten seconds. It can be for a minute, it can be 5 minutes, it can be an hour, whatever time you have, that you can allot to this. The fact that quite a few people have said, I didn't even know what one thing would be. Just goes to prove the point that we disconnect sometimes. It doesn't mean we have to be hedonistic and not have any responsibilities or ignore our responsibilities and become irresponsible. It just means connecting with the thing that will make you feel good. And finding a balance between those two things. And so hopefully, as well as the daily habit, as well as every day this month, you'll do something that makes you feel excellent because yes, air grab. I know that doesn't work on audio, but yeah, I'm air grabbing right now. But this will also make us connect with the things we should do every day because they make us feel good. Simple as that. And I tell you what, a few people have said the same thing that they didn't know what would make them happy. But no one has said, oh, but I did it and now I haven't got the time to do anything else. No one has communicated that by indulging this one thing that they've had to sacrifice anything else or that something else has fallen by the wayside. So I think that's worth bearing in mind. Don't you? And so definitely listen to that episode with Hugh Jackman. He's so thoughtful, so articulate, and so clearly very in tune with who he is. What makes him happy and what's right. I have very a very discernible code of ethics and a code of conduct that you can just hear even in the way that he speaks to Tim. And treats him with such respect and the only thing I've ever heard, not that I've had tons about Hugh Jackman, but is this that he's a wonderfully kind and generous person. In fact, I say that. A friend of mine who used to be an editor on a magazine, a film magazine. He sang happy birthday, sang happy birthday to her once. I mean, imagine that, not that I'm jealous of her, I am very jealous of her. Okay, so now for Sunday show, so this is your sneak peek about what's coming up on Sunday show. And it is a slightly different episode. A because there's a couple of guests and two because it was my first in person recording in two years, which was honestly incredible. So as you know, or if you don't know, for many, many years, I worked on magazines as a beauty editor. And so I was chatting to one of the many friends that I've made in my world as a beauty editor at Mac. I'm a French Charlotte Mac and it's LB. It's LGBTQIA+ history month. And I was saying, we were discussing it and we were talking about we were talking about the general subject as an overview. And I was saying how far the conversation has moved forward in my lifetime, how much progress we've made. But now how I feel that I'm not as plugged in to the conversation in a way that I would like and it's making me feel like I'm actually being part of the problem. And just to sort of put this into a context that some people might understand, I don't know if anyone ever watched Will & Grace. So when I was growing up, coming out was a big thing. I'm sure it still is. But there was a scene on Will & Grace will was telling his coming out story and then he was talking to someone significantly younger, maybe 20 years younger. He was like, yeah, it was fine. And that was the progress. And there was an element of being quite shocked at, oh, it was easy for you. Oh, goodness. Well, I'm really happy for you. But it just goes to show how much progress is made in actually a pretty short amount of time. And I think where we've seen this conversation progress most is the trans conversation, but and I hate to say this. I do acknowledge that I have fallen behind, and I feel terrible about that. And I'm aware that I need to do some work to catch up and to keep up and to be aware of what's really happening in this space because I've always wanted to be a champion. I've always wanted to be an ally and I realized that by not keeping up by not catching up, I'm actually being the opposite of an ally and I don't want to be that. So max director of makeup artistry and Terry barber came on the show and we were also joined by Andrew Glover, who's an incredible performer, but also came on the show. To discuss the ways in which we can be active and contribute positively to this space. So the way I was trying to sort of when I was on the phone to Charlotte I was saying, you know, when I was growing up, I was so plugged into what was going on. Pearl Jam spoke about being pro choice. I agreed with them, so I was pro choice too. The Beastie Boys said we needed to free Tibet and I looked into it and I wanted to freeze a bit too. Kurt Cobain hated Axl Rose because actually I don't want to get sued or do fame anyone. But the things that he's been charged for multiple times. And so as much as I love Guns N' Roses, I took a side, I took Kurt. That was how I was active. I was very plugged into what was going on at the time. And these bands were a huge part of my youth, and they also plugged me right into the cultural heartbeat that I was desperate to be connected to. But I still listen to these bands. I still listen to those 1919 at 1990s albums. So it stands to reason that if I'm still culturally culturally plugged in there, I'm not culturally plugged in now. And I'm out of step. And so that's why I wanted to have this conversation on the show. And I think it's so wonderful that the conversation is happening and but if you're not part of it, you need to know how to catch up. And so hopefully what the conversation with Terry and with Andrew does is it sort of gives us keys of how we can catch up and keep up. Terry is somebody who came over, came to London, I think in the 80s, Andrews in his 30s. And so they have vastly different perspectives of a very similar space. And I really appreciated that input that insight in their advice on how we can participate. Because what worries me and I be really honest about this, I'm a woman in her mid 40s who still slips up and regrettably has misgendered or dead name people by accident with no intention whatsoever, but it's happened and I don't want to do that anymore..

"And welcome to another episode of the Emma gun show in an installment of bullet points your mid week catch up with everything that goes on behind the scenes at the Emma gun show. So not only will I be giving you an update about what's going on behind the scenes. We'll also be doing an update on 12 habits and I will be giving you a sneak peek at what is coming on Sunday show. So Sunday show is the big main interview show. I always call it the main show because it's usually a guest that platformed and I love chatting to my guests so much. And so that's what I'll be sharing with you at the very end of the show. But let's do a habits update because I announced the new habit in the podcast on Monday. So a couple of days ago and in the Facebook group and on the newsletter, if you're not signed up for either of those and the links are in the show notes on the 1st of March. And this one has had such a lovely response, which has just been so wonderful to see and feel from your messages. So the habit is so simple. It's just do everything because it's not do everything that makes you feel good because then we could get ourselves into trouble. It's do something every day that brings you joy that makes you happy. And as I said on the show, a part of doing this is because the phone habit was a bit of a Debbie downer and it felt like being hyper aware of things that we were doing that we didn't want to be rather than focusing on more positive things. And what I hope to do moving forward with 12 habits is really focus on things and bring things into our orbits that are we'll make us feel amazing that will make us feel fantastic. And so it's just as simple as that. And one of the reasons why I chose it is because I know that I put off things that I think I'm not even things that I think I will enjoy. Things I know I will enjoy because I have such a duty or I've got to get my work done first or I can't do that until this is done or I really shouldn't spend my money on that. I always find a reason not to do something and it's one of the things honestly I'm one shouldn't say they don't like themselves but it's a quality I really dislike because I don't like having it and the work to fix it isn't as simple as you think. I wish it I could say that I just made a decision one day that I would always live a certain way and it isn't I fall back into the habit of not doing rather than doing and that also includes the things that I really want to try or the things that I would like to explore or whatever it might be. And so that's life limiting and we don't want to limit our lives, do we don't want to limit our fun. And I was listening to a fantastic podcast this week with Hugh Jackman. It's actually an older episode. It was recorded right at the beginning of or sort of within the first few months of lockdown on the Tim Ferriss show. And he's just talking about his approach to life and how he sets intentions for his days. And how sir Patrick Stewart, here, if you're a fan of the X-Men you'll know, Patrick Stewart was professor X. He's also John Luke Picard and many other incredible iconic characters. Phenomenal actor and he did the calculations and realized that if he were to get all of the books that he really wanted to read and put them in, I want to read these. He figured out that he wouldn't have enough time to read them all in his lifetime for the he did the work. He did the maths. And so now whatever happens makes this intention and every day, if it's cool time for a film, it's 5 a.m. he'll get a before, make a cup of tea and read for a bit just so that he is making progress with those books. And there are so many beautiful nuggets. In fact, I'll put the link to that episode in the show notes. It was such a wonderful conversation. And I really appreciated what you were saying about being connected to what you want, but also listening to what the universe is trying to tell you. And it didn't navigate too close to the whoo whoo for me for me to for my eye to begin to roll into the back of my head. I actually thought, actually, that's so true. You have to pay attention. And one of the things that we stopped paying attention to is ourselves. We're so worried about looking after other people or our bosses or all so and so think that we actually sometimes forget what do I think about this? What do I think about how I've behaved? What do I think about what I'm doing? And so hopefully what this habit will do, as well as maybe it's just a simple joy like having a cup of tea with the radio one for ten minutes, but it could be slightly deeper and honestly, those are the messages that I have been getting from so many people already. And my CTA and my call to action for this particular habit is just if you do it if you've taken that time, just send me a voice note. You can send me a voice note every day of this month. I do not care. Send me a voice note and let me know what it was, how it made you feel and why you're so glad that you connected with it again. And so many people already have been serving messages, which is so great. Can I just tell you to have an inbox where people send you voice notes telling you what they've done that day that makes them feel good? It's the perfect way to end the day. Last night I was lying in bed, listening to all of the messages and they just made me so happy and I slept like a baby so I guess I have you guys to thank for that. But a few people in their messages and in their emails and DMs. So if you have been shy about something a voice note, don't be. You can send the DM, but that won't be on the next episode of the habit. I send that voice note. And a few and all you have to do just as a side note, just as admin, send it to me to the beauty podcast at Gmail dot com.

I think she just has done so much preparation that she really enjoys the process on reminiscence and memories like everything that this film is there's two sides of the coin i think memory is so tricky because as we discussed a lot of we make in this movie. A lot of memory is actually being recreated. When you're telling the story for whatever purpose depends on who you with. If i'm remembering something from my childhood. I'm telling it for a reason because i'm you know in a precedent situation. Whatever it is that memory will be different and will play in my head differently. Than if. I'm telling it to my watts and i find something incredibly unreliable about memory the something and also al view of people end up situations. We interpret them. We live with them. Particularly things that haunt us. We interpret them in a way that we can live with them. I think they'd be something really powerful to be able to generally go back objectively experienced said as it happened not as. We wish that it had happened. Noise thought it had happened but as it actually happened but living in the past stops you from creating memories for the future right and so you have to be in the present. And i think a suddenly someone in my field in creative field is very there is a place full of looking back and analyzing bed. It's dangerous place to live. You can really screw you up in creating anything new or release of being alive. I think it's all things that come up in the movie. The there is two sides to the of of the coin.

"But be prepared for the worst. This film raises some tough. Let's discuss how prisoners doesn't ever allow its characters to feel safe. So prisoners was released in twenty thirteen. It was directed by denis villeneuve. I like that last. Name villa new. I've heard this director mentioned a bunch of times and this is the first film of actually watched From him so i'm excited to talk about today. It stars jake jillian hall as detective. Loki hugh jackman as keller dover paul dottino as alex jones maria bello as gray stover terrence howard as franklin birch melissa leo as holly jones viola davis as nancy birch. David dust malkin as bob taylor. That name always a little bit and dylan. Monette as ralph dover okay. So movie is absolutely nuts It's set during the time of thanksgiving which innocence creeds time restrictions versus the cold weather because as will come to find out There's a lot of outdoor searching. So i the big fear here is that you know. They need to do a certain something before snowfall or before christmas as as they say in the movie. Now during this thanksgiving what whether it's dinner lunch whatever during this outing between the family and the dover family who are. I don't know where their connection comes from. But we know that these two families very close. It's pretty common to see on thanksgiving to families coming together. Like that and Yeah two little girls anna enjoy. Go missing. I think go and they go to look for a red whistle. And that's like the safety whistle or something. They go to go to look for it. And they don't know where the where the girls went and they look all over and eventually with the consensus has come to Because ralph dover and his friend. I believe it was like elisa That you don't really hear from either of them too much throughout the film. But they say that. When they took the girls for a walk earlier they were climbing on this. Rv and now the rv's gone so they're assuming that the guy that was in the rv probably took the kids so yeah a whole thing happens from there but then we meet our other protagonists of the story for our other. I guess main of eyes and ears so to speak detective loki who is assigned this case and apparently he doesn't ever lose cases he he's he's a very good detective now. Keller dover who is played by hugh jackman feels Things can be done much faster in his very impatient but understandably so considering that this is his daughter. He's worried about here And he decided to take matters into his own hands and Use actually begins to torture. He he kidnaps alex and he starts a torture because he's trying to get answers. So franklin Is actually helping. Keller doing this at first But upon learning of their actions His wife. Nancy convinces franklin that while they will no longer Aid in keller. or sorry. they'll no longer aid. Keller in his efforts. They're not going to do anything to stop him from. Acting on his own but They're not the they're not going to stop them but they don't want to help them anymore. And i it's it's immoral thing. I suppose because they feel bad about what they're doing so they're gonna stop but they're not going to prevent him from doing it. Which i i just don't see how that makes it any better on them. But i do kind of understand where they're coming from there so there's that Okay let's take another look here. So loki follows another lead W- there is a little bit of a vigil for these girls missing a few days at this point quite a few days and he chases suspect. Brian taylor. This random guy with a hood just comes up weirdly touches the teddy bear at the at the visual and then he makes eye contact with the policemen and they started little chase and Things are getting kinda crazy over there. Now it's in this guy's house where eventually detective lookie will find the bloodied clothes of anna enjoy And it causes all parties to the to feel a great sense of defeat. Everyone is just assuming now that the kids are dead. They've been killed. And this is going to be the end of the girls and this is gonna be a very sad ending to the story now. Eventually we learn. Both alex and brian taylor were innocent of this crime and furthermore victims of the same crime when they were children. So what we ended up finding out was that Their mother or the person that was thought to be alex's mother was actually not out his real mother but was the actual kidnapper and have been trapping kids for plenty of years with her husband. Who is now at this point deceased. But she had been trapped catching kids with her husband and alex and bryan were both two children that at some point one you know at one point or another they actually were able to capture those two kids and the way that they capture them as they catch them and then they put them in this maze. And if they're able to get out of the maze then they're able to go free and that's not without its own personal trauma which i'm sure that the two little girls. I mean they do end up getting out and I'm sure that they will have their share of trauma. However i guess the on the bright new or the bright side here is that both girls do ended up surviving and none of our main cast is killed. Although it looks like huge akrons character might get killed but We'll touch on that a little bit later. This movie was was very hard to watch at times. And there was so much grit and real nece with the dialogue and the imagery that it actually made me both sad and angry. That cases like this aren't unheard of so let me reiterate that because i i am sticking to my notes but at the same time Stuff like this does happen in real life. unfortunately and that is what makes me sad angry. And it's the fact that this movie. I mean granted. This movie i believe is fictional. what's not fictional. Is the fact that stuff like this does exist. So this movie was able to not i. I can't say beautifully portrays it but it accurately portrays what this situation would really look like. They really show the grief of the parents in the different stages and reactions from all the parents and How the police officers feel in this moment. And how messed up that the.

Could We Delete Our Memories One Day?
"So a new movie debuted on. Hbo max earlier. This month from the creators of westworld and starring hugh jackman called reminiscence. It's about a world where scientists have created a way of relieving your memories and recovering lost. Ones it's been getting pretty bad reviews. And frankly i keep forgetting to check it out but it does have a very intriguing premise. In what if we could relive memories. What have we could change them or heck. What if we could delete memories altogether. I definitely have some that. I wish i could forget. In a recent installment of their gizeh asks series. Gizmodo spoke to a panel of researchers about whether such thing would ever actually be possible. Samuel shocker professor emeritus of neuroscience at columbia university says that the principal is kind of there but in practice it's more complicated quote the evidence from neuroscience right now suggests that a given memory is very sparsely encoded. What that means is that our cerebral cortex where most of these memories are stored has about fifteen billion nerve cells at a particular memory involve a change in activity of only a couple hundred of them. Finding those few hundred cells is very very complicated and quote. He points to a number of ongoing studies however that show what we're currently capable of in one. Scientists are able to identify a group of cells participating in one of a mouse as memories and then manipulate them enough to prove that the mouse forgot the memory. But shocker says doing that on a human scale to the sophisticated level. Most people think of when talking about deleting memories is probably not possible but in terms of similar therapies for trauma quote. A memory has four basic phases. It's initiated then consolidated then stored and then recalled in both animals like mice and monkeys and in humans. each of these phases have been shown to share a certain mechanism. Scientists are now focusing on those shared mechanisms to see if maladaptive memories can lose their anxiety provoking aura. You don't forget that you got mugged in front of a mailbox instead. The mailbox stops meaning what it used to mean. The memory is still there but it's emotional. Context has been

Totals for a wide release film and made less money than numerous films that debuted at the height of the pandemic. Wow i was. I was actually looking forward to this. And then i did reviews that we're like nope i wouldn't what what. What are your thoughts on this man like. I'd obviously i didn't see it but there's a couple of things one. Obviously bad reviews were good The marketing didn't tell me what the story was or what the film is about. I mean kind of like you know you know reminded me of Well some kind of strange days. Basically but But it was. You know you can access your memories and kind of go like relive them or stay in them. Or i don't know what the hell it was but So so the marketing wasn't clear and concise and once again the puck in day and date release on. Hbo max so if you were actually wanted to see this movie. you didn't have to go to the theaters. you can stay in and watch it on. Hbo max for free or for the cost of your subscription. i don't subscribe to hbo. Max four reminiscence. There would be any numbers to back up popularity on that platform either. Yeah it was. It was really bad. It's bad A bad deal all the way around. So i mean it's not going to get close to its to its budget right Don't know how much they spent on marketing. But you know there you're probably in it hundred twenty million hundred fifty million maybe more. So yeah. that's i mean it's it's tough from people that actually that i heard from that that Saw the movie said it's you know it's a dumpster fire. It's all over the place so which is yeah. It's too bad. It was an intriguing premise. For me i did want to see it and it looked. It looked interesting. And then i did start to hear reviews and it didn't entice me out to the theater and i don't have. Hbo max. so i didn't even bother putting it on late night saturday so i will probably do that i will.

He always made me feel like part of the world. What about yeah. this is a real life. Dysfunctional family story Directed by sean penn who also stars as an irresponsible father Who disappoint show. We say his daughter who is played by pens own daughter dylan and both of the pens give extremely good performances in this intense but very depressing movie about a father who always disappoints his daughter. Who wants him to be a good man. it's very well done From a dramatic perspective The two performances by sean and dylan are excellent And it ties everything together with a typical pen touch about how this man wants to succeed at capturing the american dream of wealth and material glory without much effort being involved in it So you expect that. As part of sean penn's Shall we say wallet of of tricks as well But the movie as a whole is so depressing so downbeat that by the end of it If you didn't feel suicidal going in you might feel susan quickly. Yeah so i. I mean i can recommend this film but it is so downbeat That you're going to have to take a while to get over it. I don't think you've ever turned me off of a movie. More than what he said. Right there. frank. I'll tell you what i'm interested in seeing. Because i'm a big fan of sean penn and now you're telling me his daughter is good too. Oh absolutely absolutely i mean. I think he intended this movie to be a showcase for her and to a certain extent it is. She's in it almost continuously but as her father. He gives a performance the so real so gritty so honest Although overwhelmingly melodramatic at the same time That he's a such a compelling figure. You can't take your eyes off him. Yeah well i think. Sean penn's like johnny depp. You know you expect melodrama from them. That's what they do and they do it very well. All right thanks so yeah i.

"Nothing is more addictive than the past. Let me back. I like sci-fi and like really creative concepts what about it. Well this is an attempt to merge old film noi with dystopia in future sci fi tale Think of chinatown crossed with blade runner. That's what they're have here And it sounds like an interesting concept doesn't work out all that well. Unfortunately it set in a miami of the future which is sinking into the sea except for the enclave protected by levees. Which of course is the province of the very wealthy Hugh jackman plays an ex-soldier in what is referred to as the border wall a war. We never know what that was. All about actually But he's also a guy in charge of a mechanism that restores people's memories in the form of holograms and a woman comes in looking for her lost keys. She wants jackman to help her remember where her lost car keys. Went and It turns out that he falls in love with her. Of course and then she disappears and it turns out. She is a fum 'fit-all. Who's part of a very strange conspiracy which involves among other people. Dying tycoon his bonkers. Wife and a son Another woman and her little son had a crooked cop and jackman gets drawn into their affairs when he tries to track down obsessively this woman that he's now in love with it. Sounds very much like laura. For example he thinks the woman is dead but he's looking for anyway And it ends up with a couple of greek big action scenes that go on forever you also as reams of pretentious narration. The jackman has to deliver a over the course of two hours. That seemed like three or four I really wanted to like this movie. But it's so sluggish so Dull That i really couldn't come into contact with. I couldn't make any kind of emotional connection with it. And jackman and rebecca ferguson. Who play the phone tall. They really don't have much chemistry between them at all. This was a real disappointment. You can find it on. Hbo max as well as in theaters this weekend. That's called reminiscent. let's move onto something. Two big names. Michael keaton samuel jackson and a movie about assassins and revenge. This is the protege move. People are good people bad you. You've the rag gift get in and get out. I always think on your feet anyway so much tonight. All right frank how is it Will this is a very high voltage action picture. Which is practically nonstop. Sites chases killings torture scenes. Everything you can possibly imagine. It sits in vietnam Present-day vietnam Although it was actually shot in romania and bulgaria so they had to try to make these eastern european places look like vietnam And the nominal star is maggie q Who plays a woman who was rescued as a refugee from vietnam during the last stages of the war there by samuel l. jackson. Who is some sort of mercenary or soldier for higher and he raised her to be his protege as assassins they go about killing scummy people For big money and He is plagued by one of those movie coughs. You know the kind that indicate they're they're going to be dying sooner but they can still go through all sorts of activities while they're waiting to die He tells her he has to go to Back to vietnam to take care of something and then he's killed and so she follows him Or at least his mission to vietnam trying to complete what he intended to do And in the process. She runs into michael keaton Who plays a security expert for the big villain that she eventually is gonna come up against Probably the the people to whom this movie will Appeal most notably are men of a certain age. Because you have michael. Keaton presented us a a security expert And he's seventy years old but he can still go toe to toe in this fantasy of a movie with maggie q in martial arts moves. A lot of stunts. Stuntman are obviously involved in trying to make it look as though michael. Keaton is actually going through all of this action And maybe men who were an age like me who are over seventy And can see this elderly guy. Actually engaging in this kind of physical contact will be moved to like the movie Otherwise though unless you want to see a lot of blood and gore and killing and torture And a heroine who really doesn't even so much emotion at all The protege is not for you. It's only in theaters. But it's fun to watch. Keaton returning to form and samuel l. jackson doing his stick. They're about the only two good things in the movie. All right i i would have jumped down to that Once again that was called the protege. Want to jump down to. Sean penn directing and starring in a movie. That is really intriguing.

Here's a name that a lot of you will recognize of course since he's an award winning actor but more importantly it's just an amazing human being in a close friend that i couldn't wait to sit down with hugh and i did something a little different this time. Kinda like i've done once in the past where it's less just an interview of hugh and in many ways a discussion between us though. I think i sort of went out and get to ask you more questions than he asked me coming into this discussion there were so many themes i wanted to explore on it. We actually got to quite a number of them. There are a handful of roles that he has played that. I think actually get at some of the many themes that i think are interesting with respect to longevity two of them in particular course being logan and the fountain and we explore those in some detail but also talk about just hughes drive and what it is that led him to not just his craft but to pursue it in the way that he's done so and on the flip side hugh asks me a lot of questions including more questions that have never been asked before and i think probably comes across as a bit more of an intimate discussion than a podcast but nevertheless i hope you'll enjoy it so without further delay. Please check out my conversation with you. Jack so awesome to have you here today. Although i do wish we were doing this in person we've been we've been saying well. Let's wait do this in person. Let's wait and do this in person but between all that's going on i think this is the next best thing so i mean the best part of in person i know i know. The compensation is great but the cooking is off the charts. Your cooking you in jail combined to like a crazy good. There's another there's another whole avenue. Therefore you i don't know i still think some of the meals i've had at your place have blown my mind even more and including the meals. I haven't had you remember. The day came over to your place. I think i was on day. Six out of seven on a fast yes s and and you endeavor really really thought you were going to get to cave in instead. I just walked around the kitchen smelling it. And i respect reading it. Yeah yeah. But i can't really take any credit for the meals of my house. You can't take the credit the the ones that yours right down to sourcing the food. I'm impressed very impressed. Yes you appreciate about. I wanna come back to that. 'cause there's an interesting story about some of those meals but this is kind of a different podcast for us. We've talked about this a lot and we thought that would be fun. Today is not just that. I'm interviewing you but in some ways that you're interviewing me and i think that's in part because you're the most curious person i know and that's evident anytime you are sitting down with anyone i've watched you interact with so many different people even just in the few minutes before we were getting this podcast recording. When you were talking to nick you're just immediately obsessed with an interested in every detail of what another person knows and how they've come to know it and stuff like that. And so i think in the past couple of months we were thinking about this. It became clear. There was no way. I was going to be able to get away with just interviewing you because you were gonna end up asking me a bunch of questions anyway. So we said well. Why don't we just acknowledge that this is going to be a discussion and not an internet now as my favorite way to do it anyway. I i often in interviews. No medal auden. I've done a lot. I always try to ask questions. Because i get bored of talking about myself anyway and if you think about my job my job is human nature like if you're an curious about people it's going to be a real struggle so i do want to start with this idea of because it's actually something. Olivia asked me yesterday. I said hey know living. I'm talking to hugh tomorrow blah blah blah blah blah and. She's because she's very interested in music and she said you ask him a question for mrs sure she said. When did he know he was good enough. That he could make it in his chosen profession. And i said i don't know get. Let me let me ask him that. I think when when i got kost and i got the job at the royal national theater in london. So i'm i'm now twenty eight. I've studied for four years. Ecology suddenly don't know that. I mean the steps on college and i went to probably one of the top two colleges in australia three year. Full time program. The stats may be five percent. Actually make a living from that. So there's eighteen people chosen any his. I certainly didn't have air. And then i came out of the gate and got quite a bit of works right off the bat which was super luck. There's nothing that was twenty six so unaided book but when trevor nunn. I auditioned to trevor on sunset boulevard. In sorry i. Should i give you some context sir trevor. Non is one of the great theater directors of all time and i was a huge fan from his work at the royal shakespeare company but also les miserables nicholas nickleby united that he was just one of the rights and so when he came to australia doing sunset boulevard. I actually didn't want do the musical. I wanted to go. I was an active. We got into musicals. And i thought i'm going to get out. Because i was getting pitching into that world and night i sit to the casting director. Listen i don't want to be in the show and this is like the most presumptious thing. I'm going to ask of you but i would love to audition for travel like he's my hero but i don't want to do it so i totally understand if you tell me to get stuffed and she said all right. I'm just gonna put you in. So i went along. I auditioned and trebon. I can tell when well it was like an amazing our that i spend within an unusually. It was in a theater so i was there. I had this feeling what it was going to be. Like wigan with him and i remember thinking office me this. I'm gonna do it. Because i need to work with. This guy was just so clear and really. That was the turning point when someone like tryba non kind of and then. He took me to london to do oklahoma. that's what i thought all right. That was the turning point for me and he was the one who gave me that confidence to see okay. So you're getting work and sydney australia. Can you might get cities. And he was the one me that it's interesting. Is it sort of like being an athlete. Where with obviously a different life cycle. But where you know. You show these glimmers of greatness early on but you're still constantly evolving in the craft so for example. Consider like tom brady. Everybody loves to talk about. Oh my god you look at him in his combine. You would have never predicted what he could have done. Of course he's the backup to drew bledsoe and if leads a heddon have got injured in the two thousand one season. Who knows how long he would have sat on the bench but then once he got his chance all of this preparation he'd done in advance he was sort of ready to unleash it on the nfl. Did you sort of feel that you were in this constant state of pent-up potential and you just needed an opportunity to demonstrate it or was it much more incremental than that still is incremental. I model those people. Who have the i know what i have to also give me a shot. Give me the give me the will like come on coach. I'm mama that kind of confidence. I've always had the courage to say. Give me the bowl. Whether i felt like getting it on not and i realized that that was essential. At some point you get. I in fact i was pretty scared of drama school and i just had a role if i just put my hand up and i said all right we need someone to do the sane romantic.

2020 Emmy Noms & Reactions
"Daily pop. It's a very big moment in Hollywood this morning. The emmy nominations were chest revealed moments ago, and we will be celebrating with some of the nominees. Though surprise, guests are coming up, so you will not want to miss it. You guys, but we got to start off with the ladies up for lead actress in Drama Series Right? The category is Stack Jen Aniston. Sandra Oh's and those are just some of the big names who is going to take the win. What do you guys think? I just think Zendaya is GonNa take you was this show that everybody was talking about? It was unbelievable and not everybody got to watch the morning show with Jennifer Aniston because. Apple TV was not readily available so I think Zendaya is going to take this I was not paying the fourteen ninety nine. GD! There was so many submissions one hundred thirty five submissions. This year for this category lost those. So things I think women I'm kind of with you. Just although ozark for me has been one of my favorite shows forever and ever and. Laura Linney could take it out that. Could get in I. could not get into. It was like I. Really Try just I couldn't do it, but that's just me. All right we gotta talk about snubs and surprises, though big little lies when pretty much everything? Last time it was nominated. But this year came up short. No Best Actress nomination, no best limited series. I'M GONNA. Ask what you guys think about. These into getting snubbed a little bit. Should've been made, I thought. Was Okay, but they should've kept it at season one. They should have just wrote it out, but you know what Merrill got nominated. Laura Linney got nominated. She is Gucci ever. Reese Witherspoon as a producer of this show. This is a win for her, so she is as though she got snubbed. She is nominated because two of our actresses were. Absolutely. Strong enough season two. Why did you like season two as much Morgan I know you were saying earlier before the show? Why you're putting me on glass. Scott, I mean maybe I didn't want to hear that I just felt like. The first season was just too hard to top to be honest. It was so good everything was everything about it was so hook line and sinker. Everyone was invested as I just feel like. They wanted to ride out that high season two was okay, but you never want to have your second season just. Just be okay I just felt like even though Merrill we all bow down to Merrill. She can handle any role. I just felt like she wasn't going to save it. And although she got nominated, she gets nominated. It's just that's just what you do. She acts that well. She deserves it all the time. I just what Jessica said I. Don't think it should have been made I think we should have just. Episodes in the second series. I love the song. The second series is still a Mike Finish shoot and I'm never finished it, so I thought.
The Prestige Nolan
"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam are and I'm Josh Larsen. Every magic trick consists of three parts first. Paul is cool. The pledge magician shows you sound olery columns bird or May that was Michael Cain right. We're done with the trip. That was Michael. Cain with some of the opening narration from Christopher Nolan's The prestige we revisit the directors fifth feature as part of our Nolan who've review this week in addition to that we're going to recommend to new films that recently came to the od the vast of night and the painter and the thief that more. Are you watching closely ahead on film spotting? Welcome to film spotting. Josh in an alternate timeline. We'd be spending this post Memorial Day weekend show singing the praises most likely of fast and furious nine. Oh Yeah I'm sure I'm sure we'd both be huge fans I haven't been keeping up with. What would have been released because it mostly depresses me. So this is to me after nine atom as the as the real fans would call it. Don't let Debbie here that that was supposed to come out because she'd probably forced me into a fast and furious marathon at home in memory of it instead. Of course we are talking about films new. Vod We're going to do a little golden brick spotting in this episode. Indeed there are two new films that meet the criteria for our golden brick or D- that's are overlooked or under unforeseen film of the year. Honor that we give to a mostly newer at least new to US filmmaker. We've both seen the new documentary the painter and the thief and I'm also going to recommend the vast of night that's a low budget sci-fi thriller that comes to Amazon Prime this weekend. Of course we're also pinning all our hopes of summer movie season on the theoretically opening tenant the latest from Christopher Nolan. Somehow the word theoretically there just seems so appropriate when talking about Christopher Nolan Anyway. That is still scheduled as of this recording anyway to come to theaters on July seventeenth seven. Seventeen chosen for being a gallon. Drome like the title of the film. Josh I'm sure that you knew that and we can trust. Christopher Nolan is GonNa try to be Oh so clever. Right yes now. A surprise. Our Own Nolan who've review which has revisiting all of Nolan's films is currently scheduled to wrap up in time for that July seventeen release otherwise all of this preparations going to be for naught. Joshua we need ten to get to the big screen in the meantime. We're going to get to his two thousand six film. The Prestige perform this feat in a manner and never before seen by yourselves or any other audience anywhere in the world. Odeon SELECTA is trees topnotch. You'd celebrate a real magician. Tries to weaver something you got something other. Magicians will scratch their heads over spoke. You have such a tweet as you're gonNA remember me for what happened. Just mentioned triggered overseen. I need to know how he does it. He has no. It's real every great. Magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called the pledge every Great Christopher Nolan movie consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called the pledge. The filmmaker shows you something ordinary with his fifth feature set in late nineteenth century London. It's two rival. Magicians Hugh Jackman sophisticated. Showman. Robert in Jira and Christian Bale's committed professional Alfred. Borden the filmmaker shows you these characters. Perhaps he asks you to watch them to see if they are indeed real on altered normal but of course they probably aren't. The second is called the turn. The filmmaker takes these characters and makes them part of something. Extraordinary are period piece becomes gothic science fiction a meditation on the moral limits of science in pursuit of knowledge the consequences of obsession. Now you're looking for the secret but you won't find it because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You WANNA BE FOOLED. But you wouldn't clap yet because one of our magicians finally winning isn't enough. Our minds have to be blown. That's why every magic trick has a third act. The hardest part the part we call the prestige fairly early. In the film. Bordon's life Sarah played by Rebecca Hall reveals. He's going to be a father. He shows her the trick. That's going to put food on their table. A bullet catch which he performs for her to prove. It's safe like any of us. Observing great trick. She wants to know the secret and insist. She can't comfortably allow him to do it unless she understands the mechanics of it he relents she replies disappointedly once. You know it's so obvious Josh. Any rewatch of the prestige requires that you know the twist and equipped with that knowledge. It does all seem well pretty obvious like Sarah did that Lee disappointed or even more impressed with Nolan sleight of hand. I am really glad you asked this question because it helped me clarify a little bit. It helped me locate one of the reasons. Why and I'll stay at say at the front here. This is still topped here. Nolan for me really love this film. I think it's incredibly strong. But your question. Help me locate one of the reasons why. I might have liked it a little bit less this time around. And it's not so simple as knowing the twists or knowing the surprises because confession. I don't think I watched the prestigious since two thousand six and I had mostly forgotten how everything unfolded now. Yeah the hints and clues pieced together in advance in a way that I did not in. Oh six but it's different from not knowing anything so I was still pretty much in the dark as this movie began. So it's not just that I knew the answers. It's and I'm not sure it disappoints even in terms of its reveals but in comparison is something like as before we started recording. You had mentioned the six cents so comparison to something like that which we did revisit just last year And is another case where it it hugely depends on its reveals. Its twists turns. It surprises
