Uh, how sweet would that be, if if they get healthy and take on either the box the sixes of the Nets. Next year. In the finals, the numbers would be off the wall. They would especially with the Nets, because a lot of people love Steph Curry and, uh, I think that there would be it would be a very, very are you talking about Charlotte are you talking about Steph Curry and Golden State? Oh, Charlotte. Charlotte is Charlotte has one of the best play by play guys out there. I think they're doing in a lot of ways the right way and we've had him on before, not on this show. But on my regular show we've had him on before. I think that they could be I It's going to take a couple more moves. But I need I think they couldn't have being like a maybe a jazz. Maybe a nuggets, which I know that's not very good to say right now. But those are still too competitive. Quality teams go right on ahead, Jim. They get playback. And then Wiseman.

You know, Jack made over 75 movies and five easy pieces. It's got to be in the top five and really close to the top because I think it's got the best. Jack Nicholson seen of all scenes he's ever been in. That's when you know he's got the bitchy waitress inside the cafe and tells her to hold the chicken sandwich between her knees. She deserved a mini Oscar for her role. But if I ask you can if you had to watch movies for the rest of your life with only one lead male actor who would it be again? Jack made over 75 movies and he's hands down my choice. Would he be yours? Jim. Thank you very much for the call. Jack is my favorite..

He's just like, fascinating to look at It just completely steals the scene, uh, completely steals the show when he comes in so easy Rider number five. Another movie that I rented from the Perry Library. That's two of the top. That's two of my top 10 folks support your local library. Next go ahead Number four, You had mentioned it five easy pieces, the the role that proved that Jack could be a leading man. He's a drift theory. Just he's unhappy in life. Not satisfied with life at all, Um, great character studies in the film, the script is Excellent. It drops different hints about these characters along the way, as you're trying to figure out like who these people are, you know, perfect example. Early on the the movie. You see him working, Um, you know, on the oil rigs, but, you know, he comes from a rich family has a musical background and the first indication that we get of that is there in a traffic jam. He sees this piano sing in the back of a truck. He climbs in the back and starts playing a classical piece on the piano, which is it's really smart. You get told things without actually than being told to you it the script, just like, trust the audience to figure things out on their own. And just the cinematography is really beautiful in the film, so five easy pieces Number four number three going with Chinatown, Jack Nicholson and they've done away who is terrific in it. 19 thirties. You know, private detective. It's a mystery trying to unravel this deep conspiracy. And you just like, really see the dark side of humanity. With what? Faye Dunaway. His character has gone through in her life and just Nicholson's character of Jake. Just so many different layers to wait. The screenplay by Robert Town is unbelievable. Some people think it's the best screenplay of all time. Roman Polanski a terrible human being, but an amazing amazing director. He just every single shot means something Every single shot has significant. It just moves. The story along is a great flow to it. A lot of hand held camera shots that he used, which wasn't uh, Used a lot during that time this movie and I was made came out in 1974. So there's a lot of unique things to it. The music is great sets the tone really early. In the movie and one of the greatest movie endings of all time and just, you know, Phase Dunaway's character. She gets shot killed, Uh, just, you know, proving to reject Jack Nicholson's character that just one man here is not going to be able to solve all the issues that are going on here in Chinatown, and there's so many movies that Like, you know, we were talking about, uh, the word.

"jack nicholson" Discussed on Cinephile: The Adnan Virk Movie Podcast

"The way at one point. I was dying because D- And Charlie reference dolls talking about a split murders personality murder and Charlie doesn't listen. There's nothing more hackneyed than that serial coz split personalities. But he tries to be nice to Aphrodisiac dressed to kill and Donald conferences. I love dress to kill which I just watch for the first time. When Liz Blake by Nancy Allen Prostitutes? He's a mysterious woman brutally slay Kate Miller Angie Dickinson. She finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation. While the police think Liz the murderer of the real killer wants to silence a crimes. Only witness only. Kate's inventor's son. Peter played by Keith. Gordon believes Liz Liz team up to find the real culprit. Who has an unexpected means hiding identity and even more surprising motivation to kill? I enjoyed it. It's a movie that I think has been awfully dated because the main characters transgender and they've got a sequence at the end I mean is I rolling and little nausea inducing at the way. They tried to explain that the character when his penis gets hard. The female side takes over and then fields murder the male side because he's transitioning from male to female you know females body and just hates himself so much that he feels like he has two murders somebody when he becomes sexually aroused clearly is not going to play well and twenty twenty. Lgbt community and this was made forty years ago so the fortieth anniversary of it. I don't think that transgender character kills an attractive woman because their penis gets aroused and they're mad at the male side of themselves having said that in terms of tension implied invention is certainly enjoyable. It's what I would call a genre movie and it continues Brian. Depalma's obsession love with Alfred. Hitchcock it's a fascinating. Debate is diploma a great director because he takes hitchcock movies and then forms Zoll with DNA of Hitchcock. Or is it outright thief and a guy that makes hitchcock? He's all over again and just remakes them and doesn't have the originality of the first movie and then just earns the spoils of them. I don't know what the answer is. It really is each person's view because clearly watching drastically. Go Yeah this is psycho. This is psycho in one thousand nine hundred. There's a brutal slash and seen rather than in a shower. He puts an elevator. But it doesn't have Bernard Hermann score but you know right away like yeah man wearing a wig psycho again okay so Michael Caines going to be the Anthony Perkins character interesting but still it works because it's got enough moments that are certainly juicy and say this for diploma. I'm telling you as far as any director when you throw dialogue out the window. He's having a blast when the cameras just takes over like he's got a twelve minute sequence here fabulous no dialogue just one character track and the other think of Carlito's way what's the best part of the last ten minutes not as war to dialogue. It's just Pacino get raced to grand central station. You got that incredible shot in the escalator. I mean that whole sequences amazing the subway cars chasing the cars amazing. Then just to kill as well think of untouchables. What's the best thing of untouchables when the baby carriages going down the steps to slow motion? Which of course nod to the Odessa steps sequence in Sergei Eisenstein battleship Potemkin loves taking famous sequences famous movies and putting his own spin on them. That's reviews Roy so kind to him. Generally speaking I think in his later years it became a little bit too predictable. Fem fatale. Rebecca Romaine snake eyes with Nick Cage. Those just didn't work although raising Cain to me still has some moments with John. Lithgow Michael Blow at a Boston Globe dressed to kill as a nail biting seat squirming stylish murder mystery with a brain. Dave Care Chicago reader. Originality has never been a high value in the genre bound aesthetic of filmmaking but diploma cheapens. What he steals. There's my point there but in being a thief Roger Ebert Depalma's an artist of hitchcock stature. But he does earned the right to a comparison other go dressed to kill. Don't have you ever seen it Joe. A forty year anniversary of that movie. You know this is the the Palme blind spot that I have. I've never seen dressed to kill The cast it's looks great on it and you know me. I'm a big fan so I definitely will have to watch this. But did you catch the dressed to kill reference in adaptation? What he's talking about the twin brothers and he goes. Oh it's cybil meets dressed to kill. Donald SAYS I love dress to kill. It was great. Yeah he he goes. I love to kill until the Third Act dement and then that's not how it's pronounced. That's right dated great great one more by the way. I'm going to give dressed to kill. I'll give it three maple leafs like I said I was a little squirming at the end there but I did think it was enjoyable in various suspenseful all right one week before iron. We'd in depression era Albany. New York Erstwhile Baseball Star Francis. Phelan play by. Jack Nicholson has become an alcoholic vagabond. After guilt over accidentally killing his infant son led him to desert his family over the course of several days. The animals ready job to dirty bar to makeshift sleeping quarters.

It's adapted from a play which means that it feels little stilted at times but but I enjoyed it. I thought it had excellent performances. Jack Nicholson Meryl Streep both nominated for Kademi awards. Best actor best actress respectively a good supporting cast as well including Diane Venire member. Her and hate playing Pacino's wife Fred. Gwynne played the judge in my cousin. Vinny Tom Waits as rudy the famous singer he's Nat Nicholson's main accomplice. There's not a lot of meat on the bone but I thought the performances were very much lived in and felt authentic..

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. I'll tell you one thing when my team is drilling to the center of the Earth They Will Sidley not be wearing your cockamamie solar-powered mining helmets. They find that poor guy. You sent a little my inventions Dr Steve. Hey doctors please. This fighting is getting US nowhere. Why can't you guys just get along chips and figure over on the far corner of the Cell Gypsum fidget are sitting huddled together telling each other Joe Reba look? They're they're stuck together like a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. I guess you're right Dr Grant. I'm sorry I snapped at you and I'm sorry that I belittled your inventions floyd. We're going to need to work together to get out of this mess. You're right. We need to think of a way to escape these worms with. I have an idea.

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

"That they've created a new blood test that can predict if someone's going to die in the next ten years well yeah no I don't it's a new blood test that is what they call incredibly accurate at predicting when someone's going to die the test analyzes your blood it looks looks for risk signs and it predicts whether you're going to die in the next five to ten years ready for the scariest part it's eighty percent accurate I don't I don't think I could do that which means if it tells you you've got less than ten years left it's probably right and the team is it done they said quote we see this as a foundation not as an end point in other words they think they can tweak his blood tests to be able to tell anybody how much longer they have to live the question is and you think you've already answered this would you want to know all if they said let me do a test on you real quick when I come back and it's like how much longer you have to live if you want to know I don't think not for me because then I would live every day knowing I'm a day closer I mean it even though I already know yeah but I would just list that's all it would consume me able to enjoy my life it would change the way you did everything you know I think about how I am going to die I can tell you that like little things in my life now like when I leave the house to go to the gym or something after I'm playing with mia when I drive to go to the job I feel incredibly guilty yeah like I feel like that dad used back closer and I know the way good job of trying to get some exercise and hope to keep my blood pressure down so I can live longer so I can have more time my daughter what what if you find out you're gonna die anyways would you still I think the bigger question is if you found out you were going to die let's see you take this test and the doctor says you have ten years to live would you there's two options here you go well can I change that can I start eating better can I change my diet my workout regimen to extend that well then there's the other side of the car you go well if I would be dead in ten years I'm live in every day like as I am I am taken that trip hi asking her out I am spending that money I am whatever you want to do this would be a great movie yeah I think someone new the day they're going to die like they found was the last holiday with Queen Latifah sort of like that here so that we do here it was kinda like that she thought she got a death prognosis and so she did do the whole living it like it's your last did the skydiving that there is that other one with the bucket list staying in the bowl of those called the bucket list with Jack Nicholson so would you live it would you live it like it was your last but if there is different they tell you had a year versus ten years they tell you got ten years it's not like you live every day like it's your last because it's not you got ten whole years now some people are bringing up the plant will what about car accidents and such your blood can't predict when you're gonna die in a crack is true yeah so it could be it but I guess they're testing it to see if something in you is going to cause you to die of a heart attack a stroke in in your resemble something there's some genetic thing yeah that is going to get you catch up to you at some point in your life I got I work I just do not think I would want to know I'm like with you I do not now and not think I would want to know when it when it now if they say that they expand this says right now it says they can tell you with the next five to ten years of you're not gonna make any thieves accurate but they said they would expand the test where they could give you a blood test and they could tell you they give you a number you have twenty three years US seventeen years left he says I would cry all these millions I would be angry and then I would be like how do I make it longer that's what I would be like I would not do the whole well the only I'm only got seventeen years left I wanna be like I would be fighting every day to make it more than seventeen years but we should be doing that already we should be putting down those potato chips or are not eating all those bad foods and everything but we still do it

"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. But I am kind of become buddies with a Houston rapper trae the truth. I mean, I don't know if he's on snoop Dogg's level still. Traces summit Nome. I hang out with two chains whenever I see him to change this as religious that the Mavericks game that next to to Cuban I beyond I didn't know who he was just by site.

You still single digits king was there to Regina king was there too. But I did not approach her in any way, shape or form to talk before you reduce them. I slept.

"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?.

"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.

Welcome to the show. Well, thanks, very interested in this topic. And I think we'd be doing a disservice to Mr. Hof f we left him one dimensional and just what his relationship with LA Cosa Nostra. And when we hear these stories we never hear about why he got involved with the mob and why he turned to the mob as muscle and this goes back World War Two coming out. There was a huge strike wave and forty six. And the business leaders couldn't accept this. So on forty seven. There was a law passed called path, partly which really tied the hands of organized labor, and Mr. Hoffa was an incredible organizer before he ever got involved with the mob, but he turned to the mob because hands of organized labor were tied in such a way that made it nearly impossible to move forward. And he took a shortcut, and he can't be absolved of of that sin, but he turned to them because of what was happening in labor law. I think you're right. Jay, go ahead, Charles. Well, we're we're French you're alive today. He'd be applauding what you're saying. Frank was himself a very sincere. Labour leader. Any any worship heartfelt worship the good? That happened did for the union and for the working people of the country. I mean Hoffa in in a fiber called Jack Nicholson playoff in a movie. Yes. He did a movie called Hoffa. Yeah. Danny devito is his right hand man or something like that. Yards from told me that his depiction of offer. Jack, Nicholson's depiction of was very very good. Yeah. Good authentic. He's a great. And I remember Hoffa soliciting the mob through Jack Nicholson in the movie because he needed muscle to get tough with some of the owners of these companies. Well, that's why he that's why he hired Frank. That's why he said the Frank I heard you paint houses, by the way, Charles when your movie comes out on the street when you're movie comes out the next year come back on and bring Bobby deniro for a little bit.

Of course, we'd love to get him on this show. He directed many. If not most of the the great episodes funny man, he was brought in early times to teach us improv. And I remember little I'd never done improv is is a, you know, actor guy. It was like throw the ball back and forth and do the thing. And you you're the, you know, you're this, and you're that and make up some I was always very uncomfortable with with improv and still am I you know, drew is is asked me number times in the old days.

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

The Big Story

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

I don't think there's a difference between high art and low art. There are movies that people put their heart into in their movies that people try to cash in on in the ones I like are the ones that people put their heart into, and you can feel it in a superior movie or you can feel it in horror movie or you can feel it in some art house movie. What I was talking about is that there is so much money being spent commercially making it so that that's all we see in. There aren't rooms for the movies that I grew up on. One of the Kuku snus I'm day those type of movies would now be art house movies in their made to feel fringe in their made to feel small.
