How AJ Got E! On Board With His Talk Show
"Before I got my show and kind of had the doubts because I told him, I'm not going to be a typical talk show host. I just want people to promote their bullshit. I don't care about the next movie or the next book or the next album. I want to just talk about all different things. And by the way, I have a lot to say, okay? I have things that they want to hear about me. And they all looked at me crooked. I said, I've lived an interesting life. Trust me, I can match these people's story for story. They have a very hesitant. I said, watch, pick up the phone. I dial Jack Nicholson. Jack, AJ, how are you, Jay? You know, I told him at the show. Do you think he'd ever do it? I know it's a lot to ask. Well, if timing allows me, I think I can make that trip AJ, you know, blah, blah, blah. I call Sean Penn, same thing. Coal warm, baby. All right in front of The Rock. Now they know, holy shit. This is not art. Talent coordination branch of the company. This is the host making these calls. We got something good
Cancel Culture Gets the Golden Globes
"Now we all got to figure out what we're going to do now that the Golden Globes has been canceled, guys. I mean, they're not going to air the show. Next year, it's not going to be on TV. Yeah, so the big hypocritical news out of Hollywood is that they've had it. With the Hollywood foreign press association for not having enough black people in the organization. And when I say not enough, I mean absolutely none. No black writers, but the Hollywood foreign press. They can do better than that. Seriously. But how come it took this long for all these Hollywood social justice warriors to see this? You think they never knew this? Oh, they're making up for it now. No black people. No TV coverage. That's the way it's going to go. Period. We need systemic serious systemic reform. They mean business. That's the fucking word again. Systemic. The use of this word is systemic. So no, Netflix and Amazon were the first organizations to say, we're not going to be involved with this group. And that led WarnerMedia to follow suit and before you know it, the awards will not be televised. And that, honestly, it kind of sucks. I do love the awards show and awards season. I've always been fucking gay for these things. Not as much as I used to be Christ. I used to be insane about it. Now I'm like, oh, these idiots, I have a good time making fun of them. But I still enjoy the glamour, even though there's not much glamour left. I still want to see Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson in the old timers, but no one cares about them anymore. So it kind of sucks for anyone who's a fan of Hollywood award shows because the globes were always the award show where the stars were relaxed and actually got a little buzz. They made crazy speeches. They had fun. You know, Ricky Gervais would come on and rip people's asses. I loved

So I'm trying to see if there's a video that accompanies what I'm reading Right now. It doesn't seem like it. TMZ reporting Julianna Carlos is now publicly apologizing for screaming, yelling and cussing and LeBron James and saying she takes full responsibility for crossing the line. To say things escalated quickly. Ushers game is an understatement, and I want to apologize for losing my cool and removing my mask. In the heat of the moment. My husband is a huge sports fan.

Whatever Trust funder hedge hedge fund he works for and let's be real sports wouldn't be sports without trash talking, get out, But she's That's true. That is, that is true. I mean, it's I don't know where the line is. And if it wasn't good enough for LeBron to think they should be kicked out, then he probably can handle it. He was baby face, and he definitely thought they should take this bitch out. You gotta live in love. Who are you? Jason, What's up, Jason? Hi. Man. It's okay. It's absolutely okay. I think athletes and fans need to trashed on especially now. Why now? Why especially now? Guns. There hasn't been any fans and statement that is true anymore.

It is more news than you'd believe. Believe and it's coming from from blue very funny. You just go on into that floyd this entire messes your fault my fault. Yes if you had build your diamond. Space travel device to create new worm owes. Every time someone made a jump we never would have violated the words union contract and they never would've captured us well if you hadn't stolen the time and space travel device and made all those time and space jumps forcing us to chase after you. We wouldn't have created so many wearables. It's just sloppy science. Floyd US scientists have created a diamond space device that drill a score and made it spin backwards reversing the Earth's orbit and thereby going back in time. Oh Yeah you're right then ideas much better than mine. That's drill into the center of the Earth. Brilliant brilliant idea better than any of yours.

Who’s Hosting the Oscars in 2020? No One.
"Talk about where the Oscars stand right now. First of all they came really quickly. This was a very short season a truncated season Monday morning at five eighteen. Am Pacific difficult getting those nominations and the show starts on February ninth. which is I think the shortest season in history? If I'm not mistaken which is really odd considering when you think we'd be elongating. These things over time to get it more content out of them but the academy decided earlier run time one week after the Super Bowl and we got some information this week first of all no host officially confirmed by the academy. How are you feeling about host? I feel great about this. There was no host last year. Yes it went fine. I thought the show was perfectly clean and the ratings were up and we got a good telecast so the running back now. I don't think that the show needs a host. I do think inc.. This means that the show's ratings will go down. You think it's a cause and effect from the no host rather than the fact that it's twenty twenty and no one watches live television login anymore. I think that that is certainly a factor and maybe a much bigger factor than the host. But I need to point out that last year. Think of all the panic and anxiety and emergency emergency podcast. We had to do because Kevin Hart was the host but then he wouldn't apologize and then he wasn't the host anymore and there was a popular Oscar and there was not a popular Oscar and there was all of this energy around the Academy Awards right now. I think there's actually a lot of energy around movies which is good. We're in a great time for movies. In nineteen seventeen win at the Globes and it's opening wide died in theaters is another time where another great film has hit theaters and people are fired up about going to the movies. That's all great. It's not great for an award show though because there's no ooh tension around what's going on other than who's going to win well counterpoint. There is a lot of attention tension around. WHO's GonNa win and and we'll talk more about that but I do think it'll be an interesting race? You pointed out there. A lot of excitement about movies and particularly a lot of movies that are nominated. And you know this is just a theory. But maybe if there's less hubbub or like dragged out controversy around the ceremony itself then people are just like like Oh the Oscars. Should I watch that. I don't know anything about you know. Maybe you're grabbing people in a moment of enthusiasm instead of fatigue I saw. There's someone on twitter. Make a suggestion which I thought was very clever now. I personally believe that when you have a year like this in which the movies are good in the racist interesting. But there isn't that anxiety that we're describing you need a host because the host creates narrative all his own are all her own. Someone suggested after seeing Will Ferrell present an award Wilford might be the best awards awards presenter in the history of awards because it feels like everything is he's doing is occurring to him in real time. which is the opposite of most people? Were just reading off a teleprompter but what if will ferrell was just the a Co presenter of every award and we just shuttled out a new person you know. Here's Meryl Streep and Feral you know. Here's here's Jack. Nicholson and Will Ferrell. Here's Isla Fisher and Will Ferrell. Let's keep bringing all these random. Does you know Chris Evans and welfare would have chemistry with all of them. He wouldn't be the quote unquote host. But he would just have to riff in in one hundred eighty second bites because what you're looking for as continuity a little bit of continuity of clarity a little bit of like what will this be like a little bit of anticipation in order for an narrative for sure and a name to stay like Will Ferrell is the Co host of the core pilot. Sure I love Will Ferrell. And he's probably ably wanted to comedians that I actually fat so I I would be open to that but I think that idea is a more specific version of large idea which is the ah the presenters are always the fun part. That's actually always the thing. At the end of the night where like what were the highlights of the Oscars besides the awards. And it's someone or a pair of people who had three minutes and they they made it work and what I like about the no host option is that it dispenses with the the monologue and all of the the creaky machinery and actually does give you the option of just let the presenter shine how do you think the show should open this year. Didn't we had a musical number last year. If I recall why was it a musical. It wasn't Queen With Adam. Lambert and performance of we are the champions God. I had blocked that. No I didn't until this moment. I think two years ago maybe mistake committing two years ago we had a justin timberlake performance opening it up a song for minions remember that wondering why the Oscars are seemingly always in peril. That's how they opened the show. The last two years not ideal totally blocked these out of my memory. It's like they don't happen I think that they should not start with a song this year. Talking to hear Houston believe it or not. Well I think that similar to in practice if maybe not an execution Emmy's it if years years ago where they had a bunch of people come out to the host And they did do a musical number and it was a little bit tongue in cheek about diversity. In a way that I didn't totally love love but get a bunch of famous people on stage to start because that's that that is. That's the thing that I want to borrow okay. So maybe it's maybe not nominees but presenters or just people you like to see. I'm sure you could get the. We always come back to the rock but like you can get him on for two minutes. I don't know put the endgame cast on. What do I

Well on the Fritz, and what happens in the episode after this, which I'm sure you're gonna watch in your next airport. Excursion is that everybody is basically hit a psychological wall right because Kelly has flipped out. She's screaming at the end of this episode theft. And he just tells her go to go to sleep go to sleep go to bed get out of here. So they're all exhausted after a day and a half of this nonsense, and then Jill shows up, and then it takes things up to another level. So that's even a better episode to watch even after this. Because now that you've seen this episode. You will appreciate it. And I don't know how I didn't see sooner. Now, how can everybody finds you? You can find me on Instagram at eight twenty eight. And that's that's why you know, I I'm a big fan as you know, on a big fan of bachelor. So I I d my my weekly commentary the bachelor, and now, you know, it's funny after doing this. I when you give me a sign that Kate. Everyone's now kind of asking where the recap is of of real housewives. So who knows I might be something I have to do now. I don't know about you. But sometimes if you like my kids only one chicken strips and hot.

"It's like a Bugs Bunny crazy. He gets handcuffs off. He's jumping his and he's being the joker. He's doing things that actually none of the men in the institution do at all. You know, he thinks of as crazy is not crazy. Well, in this in this kind of goes into the way, Jack Nicholson approach this film meals Forman wanted Jack Nicholson's character to enter in on an Rulli ward. In Jack Nicholson's, like, no, no, it's got to be a sedate ward. And the entry of mcmurphy makes it unruly. And I feel like it's I'm on Jack Nicholson side on that. I totally agree. I feel like if you walked into zoo, then you're basically, adding another animal into the zoo, he has to stir the pot, and I feel like he sits back and watches a lot. But he just thinks he's going to make a lot of money. Playing like blackjack is going to be good. Yeah. Just doing those cigarettes. Toothache soothing what I really liked that. We're kind of chasing his arc where he becomes basically like person on internet. I find that. I have seen phases of person on the internet develop by which I mean, like I've seen this happen to like several film critics several personalities where when they feel like the world doesn't want to hear what they have to say when they feel like the world doesn't fit in or agree with them enough. They take on a new persona of I am the only truth teller left on this planet. Do you know what I'm talking about that same? What's like you? Don't want to hear what I have to say. Well, let's because I told the truth get it's like everyone is breaking out of the fuck and matrix sometimes, but yeah. But to the point of Kim showing up in this ward, let let's talk about his very first therapy session because I think that's really interesting. He shows up and he makes his presence known right away. He's like a mild disruptor in that he shuffles his cards, and he makes like Billy lose focus when Billy is trying to talk his cards have like nudie pictures on them pictures on them. The call it nudie pictures. But he doesn't really do that much. It doesn't start the chaos, but yet, but I do believe when he comes in hit his goal wasn't like I need to up in the mental health system. His goal was I don't wanna work in the field..

"And then he's dooms in a lot when she says this one line, which is talking to Harding about his wife. Maybe you can tell us why you suspect her, and I wrote the line down even because I was like why that line why does this line about some other guys wife get the zoom in on her? And then I kept thinking, maybe it's because in a way, it's almost about nurse. Method herself we just suspect. This woman, we think the worst of this woman like she is this figure of evil in in a way when we you kinda dissect most of our action, she is really not that bad or she is rational. But that one line why do we suspect her why is she one of the most iconic villainess as of all time because I feel like it's in these moments that she's controlling the group like she's saying, no, she's baiting them to a certain extent. I think it goes back to the enemy and the most evil moment in this film is you know, when we see Billy for the first time losing his stutter. He's had sex with this girl, and she just goes after him because she's lost control. And the only way she can regain control is by basically torturing him mentally by saying, I'm gonna call your mother. What is your mother think about this? And yes, she's so common in confident, but she is fucking Muccino's. She's fucking him. But again talking about sincerity, you could look at that Singler. No. She's just saying we gotta talk about your mother. But we now know. She's evil. And I will also go to say that the camera does only like one or two push on Jack Nicholson in that moment where he's created this insanity on the ward for Christmas, and you know, Billy's having sex in everyone's all over the place. You know, Scatman Cruthers is passed down on the couch. The camera pulls on him. And in a way, even though he's given all these people freedom. He's done exactly what she's been doing. He just created his own version of the ward his version of the ward is everyone should be like me. We should all be fine. We can get drunk. We can fuck we can fight. But he's just as bad as her. He is her he is creating another world. And I think that that's where they share a sense of control has control his anarchy. Her control is order. Yeah. You're exactly right. Because basically what Jack Nicholson does this whole movie is imposed a chaos on these men that they don't really seem to want. Hear. Nobody really is voting for this chaos. He shows up people are. Only playing cards after his lobotomize. Everybody is calmly playing cars again except for the chief. They went back to the way that they were kind of heavy. She was mopping the floor or sweeping the floor. Just like yo is did to everything is you can reset exactly. So when you look at his actions, he's not really thinking about what's best for them really missing about what he thinks would be best for them. Like his version of what would bring them happiness. He is here even hear this in like one of the very first scenes when he's trying to convince the chief to play basketball varies the ball up in the air chief, raise it up from Bill you talking to him for he can't hear a fucking thing. I ain't talking to him. I'm talking to myself helps me think Willie don't help him. Then. Well, it don't hurt him. Either. Does it don't hurt? You does it cheap. They don't hurt him. Right. Like, most of what happens to him in his movie is a result of him being completely unable to read the room or know that what he's doing is right at he'll fuses to listen to any idea that he could be incorrect, but but I will say, and that's nurse ratchets issue as well. She's not reading the room. She's treating them all roughly the same. I know some people have been in there voluntarily. I think that there are some men that clearly benefited from his appearance are clearly chief. I think Billy too. There were things that needed to be shaken out. And I think that she would never have got to that. Because she thinks that she's helping but she's just doing what the status quo and not treating people like individuals neither technique is going to help everyone. Okay. But there's a let's talk about Billy..

"I don't think I ever had so much affection for nurse ratchet has I did on this watch my heart breaks in that moment at the end when she picks up the dirty hat like when sure hats been on the ground, and you just see you're holding that and looking at it. She's got a motion. She is a human being if you're running a mental ward. Do you want one of your patients to be rebelling? Absolutely not she deals with mcmurphy in a way that I feel like it's fair until she gets vindictive because there's. Moment where they could put him back in jail. And instead in that moment, she's like, no, I'm going to keep them here. And it's like it's I one and when she makes that decision like I'm going to teach him a lesson. That's when everything goes off course. Okay. Wait, wait. Wait that decision. Let's listen to that decision. Okay. So Jack Nicholson has just hijacked the bus driven everybody without actually asking anyone to go on a boat ride. Yes. They've had a nice time by the way to things about that boat ride. It's in the original novel. But as a the field trip that was scheduled and in this film. It was the only thing that meals form did not want to shoot he didn't. He thought it would wreck the ending of the film to give these characters this freedom. So the movie was shot pretty much chronologically. But that sequence was the last thing they shot because he really fought against it. He thought that it would really let the air out of the film. And I I would argue that moment is actually really special in helps the film because it gets you out. And it shows you these characters can exist without going crazy like the dream team. Exactly. And like he takes his vote out. Luckily, nobody like dies which people people could have died. I have -solutely. Absolutely. He takes the boat back in and because a bunch of people have been, you know, like escaped from the mental asylum there like helicopters and cops are out. On the dock. There's also Anjelica Huston. You can see her real briefly just as one of the townspeople leaning over the right nuts about coming in. But because of that they do have this meeting of like can we have this guy in the psych ward? Because by this point, all of the doctors are very sure as they have been basically from the beginning. Jack Nicholson is not crazy Jack Nicholson is just faking crazy to be in the institution. So they have their meeting about it. Everybody's talking about their theory. But what they should do with him. And this is how she says she wants to keep him there. And you know, when I saw this in this time, I believed her. I'd like to send him Bank to the work, farm, frankly. Is there anybody that you have on your staff that could relate to him maybe understand him out some of these problems?.

"Cameron Mitchell. He is the founder of the Cameron Mitchell restaurant group now twenty five years old and employing five thousand people in sixty restaurants across the country. Let's talk a little bit about the book. You wrote? Yes is the answer. And I have to start with the milkshakes story because it's got a little bit of five easy pieces to it a little Jack Nicholson, and then a little twist ending you and your wife are out with the family at a restaurant, and you obviously can look at all the items on the menu, and if they have bread, and they have cheese, you should be able to get a grilled cheese. Some places say, no, right. Tell us about that that moment, which I found amusing while we're dating ourselves. We know Jack Nicholson five easy pieces, right? It's the film buffs who were younger. We'll certainly know of the of the movie, right and the famous chicken salad scene, you can find that on YouTube. If you're not familiar with the movie, but are at the restaurant what how I wanted to grilled cheese sandwich. I have my four year old my two year old with me, my wife, and my mother and father in law. And so I wanna get a grilled cheese from my four year old son. And the gal says we don't have grilled cheese. I said, oh, okay. So I end up ordering a club sandwich hall the Turkey ham, less tomato, bake the bread. They had the cheese and they had the grill. How hard you can saute this on both sides every fat. So I get that done grilled cheese. Turkey clark. So then I ask her for a chocolate milkshake for my son. And she was well all we have is a Haagen-Dazs milkshake. It's like court of soft whipped ice cream. It's huge way too. Big for your son. We just can't talk. And I said, okay. I said we you ask your manager. So she goes to ask her manager actually the manager. Shakur had now she comes back says we can't do it. I said, okay. Well, have your manager come over to me. And my wife starts to kick me under the table. Don't do this. Nice. I just wonder why can I assume you wife has seen this movie before I mean, this is not the first time you've experienced what should be. Yes. Being knowing you're just you're just miffed by the whole process, and I want to know why. So she comes over and says well. Thing is we proportionate ice cream, and we'll give your son a little bit of ice cream. What are we going to do with the rest? Now, I've been in restaurant businesses point in time twenty plus years. I know no one's in back shooting ice cream. And I say, okay. So what were you can make a chocolate milk from each you? Now. She's great hospitality. Absolutely. I'll get your chocolate milk and search to turn away. I said hold on a second. She had hot too hot deserts on the menu hot character, homecare cake and chocolate.

But she chastised me. She this. Okay. Serbia would be expensive. And she was visibly upset me. My wife, by the way, while you're Alamo.

"So it was actually kind of a lot of fun. And of course, your seven went. I mean, how many years did jump Harry play? I could probably look that up. But the trade was was a second round pick and John Barry for the immortal Ogden who I just saw Philly last week. Anyway, I'm way off topic. But so John barren is standing there. And he goes, let's go to Jack Nicholson. I I am not going to do that. I don't know him. I like my favorite actor. But I don't know me. There's no no come on. Let's go over and I'm like, I'm not doing this. And he's like come on. So we did said hi to Jack Nicholson, and I'm like saying like you're thinking, what can I say that's different than everybody else. So I started. Talking about the movie, the pledge did you guys ever seen the pledge? I bet you believe this night. Jackie had no way all one night. Yeah. But did you guys know the ledge that movie, I'm not I'm not here for ever? Okay. The reason you never heard of it is because it's the darkest most horrific movie, I mean in terms of darkness that maybe Jack Nicholson ever made. And it was it was wondered why he did it and he plays this caught that's about to retire. But there's a woman whose daughter was murdered any promises to find the killer. So he befriends this other woman even kind of falls in love with her and she has a young daughter, and he has her dress advisor address and everything to look just like the girl that this this killer like seems to like the kill. I mean, it was brutal that he did this. He used this beautiful little girl to try to catch a murderer. Anyway, I won't ruin the whole movie. But at the end, Jack Nicholson goes mad, and I watched this. I watched this when I was like I had sprained my ankle plan in my stupid old lady, and I was lying at home. And I watched this movie and. Kept me up for like nights afterwards. He gave me nightmares, which is what I told him. And he said to me that movie was bad said. No, it wasn't a city were outstanding. You scare the credit? He goes who was gonna watch that movie. It was so bad. He said we had to do it that way because we bought the rights to the book, and we had to follow the book from start to finish. So that's how much I picked the worst movie like the Jack Nicholson ever did. And that's what I chose to talk about probably not my finest moment. Now, why people wanna play no way because often they make bets with. Without with six year long bets with with parking deck owners an-and LA. They take selfies with snoop and talk about movies with Jack Nicholson, this is why I wanna play in LA right there. Although although I'm just gonna tell collective. I'm just going to tell the wall bergh's regular regulars in Boston. So it's not. You're going to say I just want to tell you that I had dinner with Tom Cruise after the game. I'm not trying to brag.

And then by a little pair of. Dangling pink palm tree earings. And some jeans, and I thought, you know, because I'm going to Haagen girl because I learned I learned my tools from Stella and Lee, I've got three very prominent people in my in my toolkit and Yuda would always say what did you do? Right before you come into the scene. What is what's your life before? So you bring in. She had a thing where you bring in three objects from wherever you were which is actually a great exercise.

I went to Nate now. Erkki like the biggest one they had. Really come in to meet, Jack, Mr. Arnold. How do you do? I said, so okay. So here's the shirt I brought and and the earrings, and I said, and then I thought I'd be in the kitchen eating the Turkey lake and all these TV guys. You know, the union TV guys are all standing there with their mouth just jaw like. Like the scene in the Mel Brooks movie where they're all like. Producers. They're all sitting there with their mouths open and Jack Arnold. God bless them was just sort of with this bemused look on his face arms folded, and he said, very good. They use everything I brought including the Turkey leg, which is in the scene, and we shot, and I got a review in variety. I mean, it was insane. Whatever that is about energy. And I learned something about that that I think is real. I mean that that that power that I harness te doing came out on my mouth and everywhere else is totally real wasn't. What was was it? The momentum of. Suing like you came out here. You were very proactive about the Jack Nicholson thing you were kind of bouncing on cloud nine because of that. And that kind of a track did something something I mean, but I think that's real people say, oh, you know, all this thing about energy and all these people with their theories, which you can sort of pooh-pooh. And then there's a part of it that Israel that good. Good begets. Good. I mean, I'm sorry. But it's true. And there was something. I was I was on fire house on fucking on fire. I was so excited and so happy, and I was so focused. It wasn't like I was just going to go get drunk and go to parties I was and I started calling I had a holistic casting directors started calling them one after the other. I was getting results.

And what else about Nathan Phillips, Nathan Phillips may have been more veteran. Okay. He may have been but. Posted a retraction from wa PO today that Nathan Phillips clarified that he is a Vietnam quote times veteran, right? So he was not a Vietnam war veteran, but he was a veteran during the time of the never step foot in Vietnam in terms of the war. I'm gonna ask the hell, I don't even know if it was actually during a marine he was he was a marine during parts of the better around the last we can't take that away. But I will say this the guy got on on the news and was crying at the news cameras about being abused by some high school kids. And then was allowing the media to say that it was a Vietnam war veteran was in fact, the case. He loves the limelight covered Phillips the kid smirks. I wanna be clear, let's talk about the other. So I grew up in DC as we all did. Right. And in DC a lot of times, there's crazy religious people yelling at you, just happens. They're usually homeless, and you nor them. So when I was covering the story earlier in the week. I was thinking man, these Israelites are just nutjob. Crazy. Shane weird religious people. So I didn't bring that into my story, and that was part of my personal opinion. Because usually if I see a crazy birthday yelling about Jesus I walk away. Okay. So excuse me. And I'm sorry. And this is a good lesson unless we've all learned they were yelling other things like, yeah. Shooters, they're young and other even more like very fucked up shit. So the kids started chanting their school chant is according to them, and I'm going to have to start to tend to believe in a little more based on all the stuff. So basically, they want to do the school chance to drown out the zealots zealots calling them school shooters shit. Yeah. They were. Shirts off jumping around dancing and singing the school songs because they were trying to get extra fine chaperone should have stepped in there. But they didn't. But that interaction was totally reasonable base policy to the kids. It's totally we should have. We should have bashed zealots, and we should have. We should have bashed Phillips. They're a little bit more Ron Monday's show kids were not exempt. So the kids are still a whole asshole. I still believe it was a smirk. I would say zealots by four number one on the. So here's Celts kids about please. We'll one joke about zealots in. It's over won't never never speak of this. Again. What smells worse than a religious zealot protester on a D C street corner. Screaming insults at high school kids. I don't know. Well, what smells worse literally nothing. They stink. They earn those. All right. Look Jack Nicholson made a public appearance after being blasted in the face with a looney toon. Shotgun the other day, the sex symbol looks to be rolled out of a hurricane into the staple center with his son..

"I don't know if it's just, you know, Jack Nicholson or if or if it was an intentional kind of subtlety of the the hotel like right strangling him, you know, it's and having their their hold on him. They could just be him. Because I know I tried to look and see if he had just a redneck later. It seem seemed. Like, it Brown just seemed very the way stand that Kubrick, the shoots, I felt like it might have might have been a little bit of a subtle hint of the hotels power, and as he falls deeper and deeper into into madness. But I could just be, you know, saying nonsense. He does kind of go in and out of it though. Because when we see him talking to Grady in the bathroom. Yeah. And you mentioned that line earlier where he says, you know, you've always been the caretaker I've always been here. Jack starts to question him. He's like, no you killed your family. So he is in that moment, at least aware that he seeing someone he shouldn't be saying is like, I know for fact that you are dead. Whereas with Lloyd he doesn't really know that and with the young attractive woman. I don't know what he was thinking in that moment, if you know who who could have snuck onto the hotel. Property without him noticing and going up and getting a key to a room, and you know, running a bath and everything like that. And even noticed after after that scene. You know, he's freaking out and fleeing the room and everything, but when he goes back to Wendy, and she's like, well, did you find anything? He's like no right now. Everything's fine. There is nothing like completely unfazed. And I'm like is is he just trying to see in complete denial of what he saw is. He purposely lying to you know, to keep her from from being freaked out or guilt about what just happened. I feel like it could maybe be a mix of everything. But it's interesting how he was completely like horrified in that in that moment. But then when he's back it's just like completely snapped to normalcy. As if nothing happened, and maybe it's power of the hotel that maybe it's controlling his memory emotion in that way. And only seating him the madness when when they need it. And then pulling it back when because I think at that point Wendy in. Has already wanted to get Danny out of the hotel and Jack freaked out about that idea and completely shuts down, and that's clearly, you know, his his manic behavior with the with the hotel. You know, it's if Danny and Wendy get out of there. He can't kill them. And so I it's it's it's interesting as you said he kinda has these ups and downs and snaps back into it and is completely aware of what's going on. And then in other in other moments just seems like just seems like he has no idea and hasn't experienced anything. Yeah. One of the last things I want to talk about here before we get into final thoughts and everything are the differences from the book because you know, the final maybe twenty thirty minutes of the movie veer allot from how the book ends. And it's one of those things where you know, they added in the Grady daughters, and they. You weren't part of the book, which is still very confusing to me. It's one of those things where you're like, oh, you have to sit back and think about the fact that they became so icon ick because of the movie not because they were part of the book, and you know, obviously, Stephen King has his issues with this movie because it doesn't follow the book quite as well as he was hoping which is why we then have a different shining years later, which talked about at some point down on this podcast is quite a big gap between the two though. But I haven't seen that one yet. I haven't either I just bought it though. So it will happen eventually. Yeah, it's interesting like you said the like with the twins the even after even after reading the book like it is hard to separate the two because it just feels like they should be a part of it. Because I read the book I wanna say last year, and I remember even shortly after reading it maybe only been like a couple of weeks or something and someone was saying to me like, oh, how is the book?.

"You kinda you could hear it. The moment it happened. We all went what was that? There is no actual physical steel weathervane that has bearings. That could take that fucking reversal. Like it would just snap in half. Yeah. The sound of that flop was the sound of a piece of white bread with manny's on it landing face. Where it will remain forever. And that moment was memorialized by the photo of Trump and Romney at dinner where Trump looks like Jack Nicholson's joker and Romney looks like you just did a fat rail of bad crank for the first time. So okay. So now Romney is the new Senator from the pretty great state of Utah. And once again, he wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post the day taking it to Trump. See we take bets on how long that lasts. Well, he already mmediately after that supported all of Trump's main platform in the op, Ed he he said, I don't I don't like the approach. But I like everything you're doing right. Yeah. The wall thumbs up every. Yeah. Moral courage. This ain't no. And you know. Even on that Romney's going to give a convention speech for Trump in two thousand twenty. I think Trump is jealous. Did he would? I mean Romney. I think he'd love to pay off a porn star. If he knew what that was. Now, let me once again just reiterate that the entire Utah. Congressional delegation is Mormon. Yes. Four other serving congressman congressman in the hundred and sixteenth congress. However, one piece of good news there are there are only ten Mormons in congress, which is the least there's been in the last six congresses. So. Pretty baffling the overrepresentation that has had in the congress for the last several decades. Now, I'm again it. There's a reason for that. I would ask you to Kohl's if in a single word you could sum up the entirety of the Mormon congressional delegation. Let me take a few words off the table. Let's not say white or male or Republican SEL too on the nose K because one isn't which publican what's his name. Kratz Adams, Harry Reid. Harry, Ramos Lee was a prominent democrat. But let's say let's take those words off the table in a single word. How would you if you could choose a single word that would perfectly describe the Mormon congressional delegation? What would it be what does the active for for capitulate capitulated? It's pretty good. That's pretty good bitch ass. That's two words. Hyphenated I'm giving it a high. I'll allow it. How about how about sanctimonious? Oh, good one. Now, there's politicians who were saying to Mona's, and there are many politicians who kind of fit that mold, but Mormons for a very specific reason kind of embody that word more than a lot of others do and there's a reason for that. It is a specific prophecy that Mormons talk about amongst themselves. A lot. And they don't talk about that much in the open like many things things in Mormonism. There's yeah, it's like an iceberg. There's there's much more below the surface that you're not allowed to talk of. And it's all white. And it's wearing garments. And this is the prophecy and belief that someday in our future the constitution. And indeed the will put Republic will be hanging by thread. And in that day. It will be the Mormons who saved the constitution and the Republic. Well, then this is their home. Hanging by a thread is there specific words that come? I mean, you hear that phrase. Yes. So goddamn much in. Yeah. And this is somebody hanging. What's funny is that most Mormons right now at this moment in history. And this hasn't always been the case. But most Mormons in this moment in history are very very conservative. Yes. Very much Republican party, very very conservative. Yeah. So while this is probably the moment in American history when our constitution has been proposes to bowl crisis. They don't see it there on the wrong side of their. They're on the downside of that threat. Right. Yes. Exactly. The upside. So this this belief is popularly known as the white horse prophecy. And we'll we'll talk about why that is it is certainly not called the white horse prophecy among Mormons, this is a term that is kind of derogatory, and you will not find it on any more than literature, which I look for..

"Is that let me I'm just pointing out the fact with why it was so brilliant because it wasn't. It was just so an expected in so great in so many ways, and then he said that he has always wanted to for a very long period of time. Had in his mind away to explore those kinds of social issues through horror, and that he had a bunch of ideas, lined up in us was the next one that he had lined up. Let me just give you a few details because I want you to get excited about this aisle. I'm excited. I'm I'm afraid. I'm actually trying to lower the bar and say success is seventy five percent of get out coming out March twenty nineteen it centers around two couples one black and one white black. Couple is played by a Winston Duke from he played IMB AKU and Black Panther in lupita. New ongo is the the woman in that couple in the white couple is Elizabeth moss. So white and speaking of white or no, Tim hi decker tell Hidaka he's white to Tim. Hi, decker of Tim, and Eric. Yeah. As the plays the boyfriend or husband, I don't know that I'd forgotten this in that's amazing. I mean, he took a dramatic turn in a movie that I didn't see that. I read about I can't remember what it's called stood in a very tight alley with Tim Heidegger one time for the mythical show. Remember that tight alley. Yeah. That was. They really slathered on the awkwardness in I could barely take it. But I I didn't I didn't I didn't crumble the comedy was the name of Tim's movie. Was ironically, titled and not only that Duke Nicholson, his Jack Nicholson's twenty two year old grandson is making his acting debut in this movie. What? Yeah. Jack Nicholson's grandson Nicholson's a great name you get excited about this sounds like an inventor like a guy like a Ron Popo kind of like. And now another. Vegetable cutting device from the mind of Duke Nicholson is also an actor. Yeah. Well, anyway, I'm super excited about it. I do realize that I do agree with you that the chances that it can't it just can't be if it was if it was as good as get out it. It. The argument is this the argument for those of you who care about this. I've heard this are Michael Rapaport make this argument about why LeBron can never be as good as Jordan. Okay. And that is because Michael Jordan changed the game. So significantly that no one else unless they're like from a different planet can change the game in the way that Jordan did. So he literally changed everything about the game. Now, all of a sudden people had their own shoe and people had their own brand. And he played completely differently. He introduced things that seemed other worldly to the game that. Lebron can only add onto so in a one on one match. Sure. Maybe LeBron would be Jordan who we can't really. We don't know. But he can't like so what we do know. But this this stage. It was set for Jordan come in make for Jordan domino. Another Jordan de mean to say that Jordan Peele to make this movie in a way that he can't replicate. The like you said the unexpected success. So now, it's just like is it going to be as good? So it actually has stand. Great chance to be a better movie. But even it has to be twice as good which is impossible right in order to be actually better. I think about the m night Shalah Mun six cents being followed up by breakable, which I really like unbreakable. You know, it was kind of a shame because I really liked it for it to come out after six cents, which I haven't seen. You're what you're joking. Right. You missing six. You're joking. That's a joke. I know you haven't seen a lot of movies, but you've seen since I missed that one. You missed that one. I it was kind of a Blair witch kind of situation. No it wasn't. Yeah. What what do you mean? By that. I don't know. Why didn't see it? I saw unbreakable though, I tried to catch out. I see in the next one. And I really liked it because you know, I really liked it because I haven't seen six cents but six cents didn't weird eighties time in a weird situation. And I didn't get any what was happening..
"jack nicholson" Discussed on Blank Check with Griffin & David
"Another way of putting. It's like him in like a Chinatown ask mill you. But he's playing like a five easy pieces type of asshole signing, these different types of things, you know. And then once he goes into joker. It doesn't feel like he's being too protective of his brand. But he's also bringing everything you want out of the idea, Jack Nicholson is the juice movie is very well constructed like that all you need he falls into the VAT of joker chemicals. Whatever all you. Need the surgery seem you don't even see his face his laughter. The way that stage. I don't see that scene is phenomenal. Right. You know? You know? And no point does he need to give any more monologues. Or explain anything about why he suddenly is buying a lot of like, no punching. Stunt casting done. Right. The characterization flowers, Jack Nicholson. The sure. Cool. I know everything I need to know about this. No, totally. It's Jack Nicholson and bam. Got it turns into the joker. You're like I understand the things that are being mutated by this. I do kind of love like people complained when this movie came out that they gave the joker too much of like a clear back story, and alter ego and original identity because they've always been vague about that in the comic book, this is a definite from a comic book. Yes. There are lots of old batmans where they'd be like a nets the origin of the joker. And they'd always change five years later. Someone else would be like I don't want to do one. And he Joe guards story like there's just a lot of them getting killing joke like gets into his backstory, which was apparently a Bertrand, right? Those I've heard to say those are the other two things over the ten years of development is when killing joke happened and dark. Knight returns happens. They were able to go into studios with those books with Tim Burton has previous films and go like, can you see how this would all fit together? But I also like that because every different take on joker. Rewrite says backstory, it becomes like the the bit in dark night where he keeps on rewriting his own back story where like none of them have any claim to being definitive, and they all become these different versions of what could have produced a guy like this. But yeah, I mean, it's very simple. You know, he gets thrown in the VAT like in the first twenty minutes, also bama's not really in the first twenty minutes that much. No, you see him. He shows up one time and says, I'm Batman right, which is an incredible sequence. Because up until the point where he liked drops in the background. You think you've watched Bruce Wayne's childhood? And that's the moment of the turn those thugs who are like weirdly kinda like methy. A little messed all messed up, but they're very like eighties. Gutter? Punk messed. Also, they have a whole like bayton switch that. They do. They've got a whole routine leading him down this this alleyway. Yeah. And then like Keating lands comes into frame and just like fucking owns it. Did you guys I re-watch this like four times last night? That's an exaggeration. I really this like eight times last night. Do you? Remember Michael Keaton monologue from when he hosted us now the last time for man. No, no, it's really good..
Book excerpt: Michael Caine's "Blowing the Bloody Doors Off: And Other Lessons in Life"
"And in life, and you might have guessed it. The new book is called blowing the bloody doors off, Michael. Join Tom power from studio in London today. Right into it. Sir. Michael caine? Welcome to Q. Thank you very much. I'm so blowing the doors off is a book full of advice. And some of it is from you directly. Some of it is advice you've received over the years. Can you tell me about the advice? You got from John Wayne when you ran into him at the Beverly Hills hotel. Yeah. Yeah. He I just by Alfie, and I was in in in in Hollywood with nothing to do. I was going to a movie we Shirley, MacLaine it. She was late coming there. And I didn't know anybody so used to sit in the lobby looking for movie saws spotted John Wayne, and he was registered in a hotel Luca be said to be what's your name? K I said Michael Caine he said in that movie Alfie, and he said you got to be a star kid. So should thank you. Thanks very much. They said let me give you some advice. I should. Okay. Yeah. Fine months. He said, we talk talk low talk slow and does say too much. And he looked down at my shoes knows worry suede shoes. And he said a never wear suede shoes. He said never wear suede shoes. I said why not? He said because I just told you you're going to be famous you're going to be a stock it. He said you're going to be taken a p in the jets toilet demand. Next year is going to recognize your turn it. So Michael Cain is gonna pay all over your shoes. So don't wait. What a thing. It must be to have John Wayne tell you you're going to be a star. Hey was stunned in Hollywood. When I went there because I'd been a film fan on my life. But to actually go there and made them, you know, it was amazing. John Wayne is very kind to you. He gives you advice, even near death. Right. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, my wife had pen to scientists and she was in hospital visitor. John Wayne was dying in the next room. And we used to walk up and down the corridor. You were pajamas and addressing gown in a cowboy hat in a hospital. He was dying. You know, and he said never worry about dying cages get on with your life. Just do what you wanna do because we're all gonna die. You know that I said, yes. Yes. John. And we say good bye. And I never saw him again. That's beautiful. That's an amazing story. There's a piece of acting advice that I really loved that you come to a few times in the book. So you're playing a drunk on stage the very beginning of your career. Oh, yeah. I would imagine playing a drunken stage like you would hiccuping and stumbling around, but you get a piece of advice and a piece of direction that you really think shaped your work forever. Right. Oh, I did it. I was in first little theatre version is a stage actor I was playing a drunk. We were rehearsing and came on and started in and said, wait a minute. My what are you doing? I said we'll drunkenness and he said, no, he said, you know, proper drunk a drunk is a man who is trying to speak, clearly and walk straight. You are an actor who's trying to mumble a book crooked and the other one he said to me a little later I seen in a play where I had to cry. And so I was crying. And then again, he stopped me said, what are you doing? I said we're not crying in. He said you're supposed to be a man crying. When a man cries. He will do anything not to cry. You are an actor who's doing anything to try cry. You said you got to run you go to run. And so he told me movie acting in two sentences. It feels like it's it's a much harder. What is required then what you originally doing? And it's almost like you have to act mostly inside of you. Oh, yeah. You you do I mean one of the things you gotta remember when you're rehearsing some some when I was in the theater is to look in the mirror Beethoven rehearsed. You know, an experienced tech said to me said never look at the mirror said never let anyone read the lines your lines back at you to rehearse. He said because you've got to remember when you hear the lines is conversation in a movie, that's the first time you ever heard that man say that. But you just got to know the answer to what he say. That's that's so fascinating. You talk about how you use real incidents from your life as an actor. For example, you use it dark memory from your childhood during World War Two when you want to conjure up h I should be clear. You you grew up in London. During World War Two. Tell me a little bit more about that. Oh, yeah. I was I'm a Londoner six when the war started and twelve when it ended, but I was evacuated a lot of the time. So. I was very lucky because the blitz wasn't continuous. There was always gaps because he they used to change the weapons, you know, to be it'd be incendiary for a while. A. Hi, explosives doodle bugs. And then the last one which will be the most worst one with the rockets. Well, it's an interesting point because you talk about using your experience as a soldier in Korea. When you want to feel fear as an actor. But is that a strange feeling being aware that you need to keep in touch with some of the most traumatic moments in your life in order to do your craft. Oh, yeah. I have an incident. I've never told anybody, including my wife, you've been married forty seven years what I do to make me cry. I think of something in my life, and I burst into tears it. It was so. And it wasn't even horrible or terrible. It was just very very sensitive. That's all I thought you were about to tell me just then now never told us. So. If I wanna be able to do it. But you know, what I mean, it's it's it's a funny thing in order to access this part of your craft. You actually do have to relive most most people would like to bury those away forever. Wait, I'm Stanislavsky method actor you you have to live on what happened in your life. What do you think growing up during the war did for you as an actor? It taught me every experience did you can feel right through a great joy and terrible agony an extreme fear. You know, it was it was terrible agony when the war. Started extreme fear all the way through an incredible joy when it finished. And so everything was in the extreme. I remember someone has a reporter said what what was it about? Oh, you guys in the sixties. But it was is people like me. I was the oldest of the sixties was born in the depression in the thirties. Six to twelve hours in a war. When I was eighteen I sent me defy in Korea. You know, when I got home the fifties in London rationing was still on the place was like a morgue vizo roads. And we were burning coal for heating. So smug every day every single day. There was smoke and disgusting place to be and then when we got to the sixties Khrushchev said, we have an atom bomb. You've got four minutes to live. So I suppose we also got formulas to live. We might as well have a good times. I always say that's how the sixties happened. We all had a fabulous time. Let's funny Roger Daltry from the who. And he said the same thing. He said he grew up with rations. He grew up. He said it made him grow up very short. So when time came that he could live life. He wanted to do as much as he could. But we've all exactly the same and the sixties wasn't mastered by anybody nobody thought of it while it was going on. Nobody wrote about. About it was only written about it was just thousands and thousands of working class. People said I've had enough we went we went out. And did what we wanted to do. The thing about the sixties. Everybody I met who is completely unknown became famous. I remember I was sharing. A fact we my friend Terence stamp, and he had a brother, and I was sitting with him. And I said, what do you want to do with your life? He said I'm going to be a music manager. I said, oh, really, you know, tell hoopla is going to be, you know, twenty year old company boy, ill educated and everything. Would never wait. You went to grammar school. Yeah. Yeah. So I said, oh, yeah. Well, good luck. Forgot about it. He said. My mate, we're going to be we've found an act last night. I said, oh, really what was it cold? He said to who. And I found in a pub I finished because he died recently, Chris Christine. But he died very successful and wealthy, man. Do you feel like the whole class thing, isn't as isn't as heavy as it was. When you first started. Oh my God. No, no, no, no. It's still there. But it has no power. I mean, nobody takes any notice of any judge because there are so or something even you know, take. Anyway, I didn't know whether to call you, sir. Now, everybody goes re Michael doug- used the title. So the book is called blowing the doors off Michael Caines Serb, sir. Michael Caine with. No alright. This book is about the lessons you learned throughout your career. So we've talked a little bit about the sixties, and and you coming up and breaking through and becoming this huge success. What I also find interesting is the later stages so in the nineties, you were looking at retiring from films altogether and your credit Jack Nicholson for bringing back from retirement, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's right. I when when is about sixty sixty one or something like that, I got a script producer send it back. So I don't want to do it. The part was too small, and he send it back saying I did want you to read the lover of what did you read the father? And so I suddenly realized up of a lover anymore. If you're going to be a movie star, you gotta get the girl. You know? Now, I'm going to be the father to go to hell with it. So every tired, and I went to Miami department and spend the Miami in the winter in Miami are stayed in London as well. But I had had a restaurant in London restaurant in in in Miami. And that was a success. And I wrote my autobiography at the end of my career, which was called the elephant to Hollywood because I come from a place in London, cool the elephant and castle. So I thought that was a good elephant to Hollywood. And so they're right in my book, and Jack meatless Lewisham is living the way man paint, we became friends and. Suddenly one day kind of got a script. He says it good good partner for you. You say. I live with blood and wine, and it was a very it wasn't a starring pie. Obviously Jack was the star. So I thought well, I'll do this is very good. I'm what I'd done is. I'd I'd made a mistake every tiring too soon. You know, because I went on to begin the second Academy Award for decide to house rules.

Keeping Secrets Makes Life Harder, Emotions Change Your Perception of Time
"Today. You'll learn how keeping secrets can literally weigh you down. How we knew the earth rotates before we had space travel, and how your emotions can alter your perception of time with satisfy some curiosity. Do you have a secret? Here's a fun fact, according to a two thousand seventeen study the average person has around thirteen secrets and five of them will never come out to anyone. The researchers say that it isn't the number of secrets you keep that really matters, though, it's the burden of those secrets and the real effects. They have on you. Glad I don't have to deal with this. You don't have any secrets or do. I you'll never know. Do you know, I I feel like I need to have more secrets if you like that would be good for me to just like stop telling people everything, according to this research that may not be the case this study out of Columbia business school showed that when a subject thought about their secrets they actually acted as if they were burdened by physical wait this happened. Even on the subject wasn't hiding a particular secret at that moment. There's more research to back this up a twenty twelve study showed that quote, people who recalled were preoccupied with or suppressed an important secret estimated hills to be steeper perceived distances to be farther indicated that physical tasks would require more effort and were less likely to help others with physical tasks, unquote. So even if you're not actively hiding a secret everything could be harder just by thinking about it. The recent paper notes that our minds are constantly trying to resolve issues or reach goals that we haven't achieved yet. But. Here's the thing. A secret is a goal that can never be accomplished that leaves one solution. Just don't think about your secret. Hopefully, someday in the near future, researchers will figure out the secret to doing just that we know the earth rotates, but if you've ever wondered how we figured that out before space travel, you can thank a thirty two year old med school dropout from France. See it turns that you can accomplish great things. Even if you like Ashley, and you can't handle the sight of blood, right? That's why he dropped out of medical school. And he didn't have any formal science training. He's basically my mail French twin from a couple of hundred years ago, I'm talking about John Bernard Leone Fuko he was born in Paris in eighteen nineteen and after he left med school. He got a job as a lab assistant and did some pretty cool science stuff. But his biggest accomplishment might have been figuring out. How to prove that the earth rotates? Now rotation wasn't a brand new idea over the centuries Galileo and a lot of other scientists had proposed the idea that the. The earth was rotating not the heavens, but they were typically put to death or imprisoned for their heretical views. Fortunately, most educated people cited with Galileo and his ilk by the time Fuko was around and in January of eighteen fifty one Phooko figured out how to show the effects of the earth's rotation the Fuko pendulum. Here's how it works. Imagine. You're standing on the North Pole, and you have a super tall pendulum swinging from side to side tracing its path in a pile of sand as the earth turns beneath the pendulum the pendulum will keep swinging in its original direction, irrespective of the ground beneath it that means that over the course of a twenty four hour day, the path of the pendulum would look like it's shifting bit by bit until it had drawn a line at every degree of three hundred sixty degrees circle the pendulum swinging side to side, it's the earth that's moving beneath it that proves that the earth rotates who co calculated the sign law to figure out how many degrees the pendulum would rotate in. Twenty four hour period in different places in the world, including Paris where it would turn two hundred seventy degrees in one day. I first demonstration to the public. He hung a sixty two pound brass Bob from two hundred twenty foot long wire and let it swing through a thin layer of sand on the marble floor of the Paris observatory today, you can see full-scale Fuko pendulums at museums and universities all over the world there a great reminder of how a little curiosity and confidence can lead to earth turning discoveries. Speaking of rotation. Today's episode is sponsored by MOVA Globes spelt, M O VA their Globes that rotate by themselves MOVA, Globes rotate using technology. That's the first of its kind no batteries.

He asked why does time seemed to slow down during certain events the clock. Always seems to run slower when I'm staring at it. And recently we had a magnitude four. Point four earthquake. That felt like it lasted forever greed question. Many. Here's the short answer MRI based research suggests that time isn't tracked by just one part of our brain. Instead the job is shared across a large network of neural areas. That might explain why so many different things can change. How we experience time passing by? There are a few things that make time fly. And if you things that make time crawl so here, a few examples, we all know, the time flies when you're having fun. But time also flies when you're in the zone. There's a thing in positive psychology called flow state, which is when you're fully engaged in doing something with a complete focus and maximum energy. This could be if you're an artist painter or musician or writer, but it can also apply to anything you're passionate about. Whether it's coding accounting. Cooking, hyper, focus is a more passive version of flow state. And that's something has your attention. But it doesn't demand. A lot of effort thinks zoning out in front of your TV. It doesn't feel as good but time still flies now. Now, a few things might make time stand still one is when you're awestruck a twenty twelve study showed that watching an inspiring video made time feel like it was going slower than when people watched a happy video and Aw inspiring experience of being in nature can also slow time like walking in a forest versus walking in a major city. One more thing. That's lowest downtime is fear. Participants in twenty eleven study experienced time as slower even after they had finished watching a scene from the shining with Jack Nicholson, maybe take a horror flick on your next vacation and see what
Youve seen this movie before
"How did we get to the point where remakes and sequels and all sorts of iterations on existing franchises have become such an incredible percentage of all the entertainment created because I know that they've already existed, but this is twenty-seven seventeen top worldwide grosses at the box office Star Wars, the last Jedi beauty and the beast. The fate of the furious, which is sequel number seventy eight despicable me three Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle that is a sequel Spiderman homecoming, which is either a sequel or reboot it's both depending on depending on which way you want to look at it wolf warrior to number eight guardians of the galaxy volume two shirt number nine Thor ragnarok, number ten wonder woman. Yeah, that's global. That's the top ten movies all of them, a sequel or a reboot or in some cases both. So how did it become what changed in the industry that made this the predominant model rather than just like something that Disney might do every once in a while? There's a Cup. Of arguments. The the first argument is that it is more appealing to a studio to produce an existing property. A new version or sequel to something that people already know because it's easier to sell there's less resistance on every level. It's a thing. If you already know the thing, you're more likely to be interested in the thing. The other argument is that the mid range movie has disappeared which is where you used to see many more original concepts and they're either turning on Netflix now like new films from Nicole hall of center Tamara Jenkins, or what is the mid range movie. It would have been made for somewhere between it used to be twenty to sixty million. Now, it's five to twenty. It would have been a smallish film, usually a character study or historical drama that doesn't have battle scenes is about people in rooms or people in, you know, houses having lives and doing things that don't involve capes or murder and the mid range movie even those of mutated into stuff like bird box. The netflix. Which is opposed to puck elliptic thing. With Sandra Bullock walking through a forest. Blindfolded? Arrival would have been amid range movie actually seem screenwriter. Eric Heiser arrival would have been a mid range movie. But instead, it was a massive studio words contender because of what it turned out to be. But I think when they started it out it was going to be a smaller more intimate project. So those films don't get made anymore because twenty million dollars into a movie will get you maybe sixty or eighty this is the old thinking, and so now if you make a guard Guanzhou in thing that costs a hundred and fifty million unless it tanks so spectacularly that. You know, the studio dies it'll probably pull in half a billion to a billion dollars. Right. It doesn't have to be good. But it has to be safer. Bet has to be recognizable. Exactly. So that's part of it. The hangover was a tiny little movie that then became a monster franchise because it was hit. So they made two more. Now, what am I seeing tooth? Who's maybe is a call or something? And in the olden days, they would have stopped after one. He would have just said, oh, that's really cool. This thing made three hundred million dollars for a everybody likes it. Let's go to the next contest. Do another comedy. Exactly. Let's lunch. Something else. When Bradley Cooper was here. Like six months before he was here for another original project that Jim Carey movie called yes-men, the tanked, and he said like it was insane that that Warner was giving this movie two three completely untested. Like, Bradley Cooper, never had a hit and homes and never had a hit. Nobody news at Calvin. Acas was set a couple of comedy cycles or comedy circles in journalists, and they risk that money on this little movie, which couldn't have cost that much, and it was a massive hit. And then they made two more, and they'll probably reboot it in five years with with. I would assume women because that might be interesting. There have been attempts to do a women's version of the hangover bridesmaids is great rough night. There's a few of those the idea of people behaving badly friend circles getting out of control, they'll they'll reboot the hangover in five years. They'll prob. Rebooted with women because that's a smart move because otherwise you have to. I mean, the the gender thing really helps because you create a new universe that doesn't depend on the demands of the original film, you you can bring, you know, most remakes are very very rooted in the expectations of the audience, right because we all wanna be pandered to we own to see the thing that we liked again. That's the governing principle of entertainment. Now, give me more of the thing. I like I understand exactly why the studios do it. When you lay it out that way on the economics and play why do we consume it? Why is our bar? So low nail it doesn't feel like it was always this way. Well, it probably was we just didn't know it. The the difference is that now instead of knockoffs which used to happen. You know, if there was a smoking abandoned, there'd be ten car movies the next year. If there was rocky there'd be five boxing movies, the next year or or sports movies or a wave of underdogs. Portsmouth is actually what did happen stuff like breaking away. And so on now, we just make more Rockies. Yeah. We we really have another one right now creed to is rocky eight. Away that creed was not rocky seven, which is kind of disappointing. And no one can articulate it. Exactly. But the the answer is it's because it's because creed was the only one that Silvester still didn't right. And he didn't script it. It was somebody else's project. He was used beautifully in it. But when Ryan Kugler wasn't available to come back to Crete to Stallone jumped in and wrote it, and it's a rocky movie now, and I think people should be more disappointed by that than they are. That's the crux of why we want to have this. But they're not conversation because they're not an I made fun of when you said at the beginning of this podcast that there would be another Harry Potter, and who would be cast as another Harry Potter. I will watch that Harry Potter movie or it'll probably actually be a TV show. So that they can do it. Yeah. For Justice over eight years and eight seasons, and whatever God, you could go to school with them in real time home, that's a horrible idea. I would watch. So I I agree that it's a bad idea. But I will consume that content. Why it's because you want to see your idea of what it should be validated. And in the end, we find out that it doesn't matter. If it isn't because nobody can imagine. Everybody's complaining about what a movie isn't. And what it shouldn't be. I mean, that's my job is to say actually this. But I hope that I'm coming at it from a perspective of history, and a sense of you know, why you can make this movie why this movie fails or why this movie's succeeds, and how this argument could be applied to other movies and similar genres. I basically, I I'm there to provide context for why you did or didn't like something. I guess, but as far as the reboot thing goes again, it's safer because the curiosity factor has it clipped everything else people want to know, they want to see what the new superman looks like they want to know what the new joker like Joaquin Phoenix is the joker. But Jared Lido is the joker. Well, that's what happens ledger. Yeah joke. They'll Cesar Romero is the joker or Jack Nicholson as the joker. That's the. That's the point. Right. Like my engagement with the stuff is always. Oh, that's interesting or. Yeah. I've seen that. There's like it's a binary. There's no middle ground. There is no mildly successful remake it either works or it doesn't. And it's because we know what it's supposed to look like is because we've been trained by our own lives to want. This thing the way it was supposed to want to watch new stuff. Oh god. Yes. That's all. I want. I crave it, please. Give me some. But why does so many people? Why would so many people prefer to watch a sequel to something that they already know part of it is that you don't have to invest as much. You already have the backstory you don't need to introduce new things. Or if you do you have to do it in a certain way, fix it feel comfortable Spiderman homecoming is an excellent example of that they turned it into an eighties movie. Yeah. Which makes it simultaneously nostalgic of new in a way that this character doesn't need to be. But it works. It's comforting. And you feel the the youth of the character is because he's never been a kid before Spiderman being in high school before in the movies, but he's a child and Tom Holland's performance. I mean, the the actors in his twenties, but he looks like a kid, and you can root for him that way, and it makes it feel new and by having Tony stark introduce him to the two by having Tony stark introduced into the marvel universe in civil war. It was like extending a hand to the franchise and bring it on. And the fact that I know all of this is nuts because it's a two hour movie. And I shouldn't bring all of this stuff with me to this film. But it's not a reboot. It is the what eighteenth chapter in films. That's been going on for a decade. It's part of a huge thing where we are now culturally. Right. It's not just social media and the internet, although that's a huge part of it is part of the it builds expectation, but it's also the fact that this story has been ongoing, and if you missed one you can probably catch up it's not a big deal unless you missed an adventures or captain America movie where all the characters are together you can dip in and out. But if you've been following it all along, it feels really good to know all this stuff. It feels like you're being accommodated in a way that a remake or a sequel or a franchise is supposed to do it. Doesn't bar new entry, but it rewards ongoing participation in the Harry Potter films did the same thing. I mean, they made one of those a year for eight years, right or the there. They started to stagger them apart after a while. Once it got complicated. They were releasing them every year and a half. I don't remember. But I do remember that I saw all of them. I didn't really like all of them. Did they didn't get good until the third one? And we're at a place now culturally where you can say that about a television show. Well, you have to watch the for six episodes. No, you don't you actually don't. But if you don't you'll miss it. And if everybody's talking about it, they and you want to see it. And if it's a thing that everybody talked about twenty years ago that that little tug is still there. So when fuller house comes back, which is okay. Comfort food at best. Right. It's a remake. It's a it's a new season of a show that people other show that they've brought back which is like there's a list of them. Yeah. Fuller houses. I for me. It's the best example because it's one of those things where when you hear about it. It sounds insane. Why would anyone care? And then you find out exactly how many people do care, which is why it exists, and whether they really wanna see it or just kind of curious about it that doesn't matter as long as they click on it for Netflix. The Netflix has made it worth their while. And we're going to get more of it. And we're going to get more of an and that Spurs the need to make more things come back. So there's a new charmed and there's a new. Do not on Netflix. But it's it's all part of the culture, if you can reboot a TV show, you can make millions of dollars right off the bat and the Handmaid's tale just got a built in audience through its TV show success. And now there's a book sequel Margaret Atwood is writing a Handmaid's tale sequel, which is one of the few things that I'm genuinely interested in because she won't be basing it on the TV series. That's the important part. It will it will still be set in her world. I mean, I don't need the answers to what happens in the Handmaid's tale. It's all in the first book, we know what we need to know about that book was a finished work. And you know, it is because it's been taught in schools for thirty years. Sure. It's a self contained narrative. And if there was one artist in Canada didn't need to follow the two reasons for producing sequels and remakes that you've just outlined, theoretically, it should be Margaret what she can do whatever she wants. She absolutely can. But I can also I can see the testament emerging as a response to the show, but that's me understanding the pull the remake. I would rather just think about it. Myself than have to watch it executed because the odds are won't be the thing that I wanted it to be when beauty and the beast, the stage version came to Toronto I got to go to a preview, and nobody told us that the thing was three hours long that it was a massive reconstruction of an eighty two minute movie. And when the first deviation came which is slightly longer dialogue scene between bell and her father. There was a kid. There was a child very must have been very unsettled up in the mezzanine who started saying, no, no, no, no, no. This isn't it and had to be shushed. And it's like, that's the brain. And that's everybody in these things, you really only want to see the thing you like, and you want more of it. But you don't that? I mean, the kid didn't they could be just wanna beauty, and the b you can give this opportunity this child who I mean, this would have been was after The Lion King. Right. So it was the mid to late ninety s and this childhood only been raised on this movie. That was only, you know at most ten years old, and he didn't want more wanted the same thing. And that's all of us. But we won't admit it. So we're still curious. We're kinda wanna go see what the new thing is if it's the old thing. And if it's not the old thing we want to know, how we can be comforted by whatever it is that we loved about the old thing, and it never occurs to people to just pull out the old thing and watch it again because those are everywhere, and that's that's my objection. And yet when Pete's dragon comes out, or when the Paddington movies come out, and they are beautiful perfect realizations of the spirit of the project, even though they are not the original thing than you do reconnect with the thing you loved about it. And I think it's also very telling that those are projects for children. Yeah. We're all children. Now, we want to be right. Like, isn't that the whole thing? The the lie of the the government is that you want a strong like what what's the argument? The Republicans are the strong father. And the Democrats are the are the nurturing mother, and you can only have one at a time. But we see what is strong father looks like, and it's horrible and we retreat can we want whatever
