"Take a view on another burgeoning tech industry that is primed for more regulation, and that is crypto. I want to bring in Macon del Rahim now, partner at Latham and Watkins and former assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's antitrust division under the Trump administration. He oversaw the review and resolution of hundreds of mergers and acquisition and played a vital role in building the antitrust division's engagement with its international counterparts, making thank you so much for joining us. I wanted to interview you for a long time. And I'm so curious what you make of the debate in the crypto universe right now about how to balance innovation and regulation. Obviously, there's been a ton of volatility in this space. There have been bankruptcies, but also a ton of enthusiasm. What's the right balance? Well, thanks. First of all, for having me on, it's interesting. There's this debate whenever you have a foundational technology that could disrupt incumbent players. There's a big debate and the legislative process is that it's a very slow process because you need a lot of education. You need to educate the policy members, the policy makers, members of Congress and others about exactly what it does and what should they be afraid of to get in there. Of course, I think the less regulation you have, especially at the infancy of a new technology, the greater the innovation that is going to be surrounding that. Of course, if there's abuses, that's when regulations should come in, but not to come in early at the early stages of developing a new foundational technology like blockchain. And so you've seen a lot of changes in the marketplace, of course, largely related to cryptocurrencies rather than the broader space of blockchain that has many applications. So President Biden's crypto executive order, for example, what's your view on that from an antitrust perspective? Look, I think one of the very positive things about the executive order, it brings the whole of government. It gets the views of different folks. It looks at competition area, the area that I'm very much concerned about is making sure that regulation is not put in place where you have static regulation, ex ante that puts that puts shackles on the engineers and the business models. Rather than letting get develop into its full potential. And what I'm hoping is that different aspects of the government. So of course there's this very important role for the SEC and the CFTC and those types of agencies that regulate it from an investment standpoint, but there's also an important role for the departments of commerce and Department of Justice, particularly the antitrust division to ensure that the regulations will allow maximum competition and provide the greatest incentives for further innovation. This is a technology that I think has infinite potential to really disrupt many areas and provide efficiencies that ultimately benefit consumers, such as lowering transaction costs. Sure. Now, we've seen firms like FTX take on a lot more of the market, striking deals left and right. Is that something that we should be worried about from an antitrust perspective or are there other red flags that you see? Look, this is a market that's just developing. So there's going to be some winners. There's going to be some losers and it's going to develop. You're probably not old enough. Like I am to remember back in 2000 right at the height of the Internet bubble where you had everything you plop a name at a dot com to it and all of a sudden it's a $1 billion company, not all of them survive because they didn't have all the essential elements. So I think the industry is going through some changes and some transactions are very good because it allows for some technologies or some engineers and other talent to be absorbed into something another entity that could be productive. So I think every transaction needs to be looked at on its own specific facts and its own specific merits. And that's what the antitrust laws do. They don't look at it holistically about a bunch of acquisitions, whether they're bad or good. We look at the effects of that transaction. What's your view on the Klobuchar grassley Bill designed to rein in big tech? Is that the correct framework by which big tech should be regulated? Look, I think it's a difficult one because there's existing law and there's a number of litigation that is ongoing, both in the United States and abroad. And I won't comment on that. But the legislative process, whenever you are going to impact ahead of time, this is really industrial policy. This is not really antitrust laws that are being proposed. You are making a policy judgment call about certain businesses. There's going to be some harms because you're going to lose some efficiencies when those business practices are precluded. And those are judgment calls that policymakers are making. There's going to be some harm to consumers by some aspects of these bills. And for example, there's another legislation that makes illegal every merger that's worth that's worth over $5 billion. That just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And some of these bills, they really need to be refined. There needs to be a lot of debate about this. There isn't, I don't think the requisite amount of proper debate and the implications of all these bills has been had there in Congress yet. Okay, then what's your view on the state of antitrust enforcement more broadly under the Biden administration? Look, President Biden came in. He issued an executive order from The White House to the agencies that also to every regulate regulated industry agency. Every executive branch has to look at it for competition purposes. I think that's good. That is fine to look at the competitive effects of impacts of your regulatory actions. What I don't like is that if particular industries are just targeted, I don't think that should be the goal. And I hope that the two antitrust agencies, the enforcement agencies, the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice, look at each case each transaction each company and the effects of the conduct that they have rather than trying to target you pick your name, big tech, big health, big whatever, it might be a big and a capitalist system is not bad. Big behaving badly is bad as I've in a sophomoric way described once. So quickly, what's your take on Lena con and her latest approach we've learned about the FTC challenging meta's attempt to acquire within unlimited a VR company and obviously, you know, she certainly made it clear she wants to take on big, big tech, quickly, do you think that she is going to succeed? Well, look, I had an old mentor. Jack valenti, who was the head of the motion pictures. Association and a colorful guy. And once he told me, you can tell a man to go to hell, getting him there as a whole different story. My experience in law enforcement is that you can say, you know, you're going to break up any company you want or any industry, you got to you have to develop the facts, develop the law and go prove it in court. That's not always very easy to do. I think they have taken on taking a hard look at some cases, but I think as they have found in the past year and a half actually bringing specific cases and winning them in court is not as easy as saying. So you know why? Because we're a country of laws and there's precedent of the antitrust laws out there. I commend them for pushing the envelope within the boundaries of the law, but I think success is going to be a challenge unless the facts and the laws of their. That is a metaphor that I will remember. Thank you, Macon del Raheem, a partner at lay them and walk ins, former DoJ assistant attorney

"It. So it's like, Oh, that group did it. I can do it, too. And maybe I can do it better. Yeah, So you just kind of build momentum and just keep things going, and it's amazing. Just as an example when I started Full time at the University of Houston with the advertising program. We had 40 students, that was it. And today and just the advertising program alone about 350. That's huge. That's wonderful. It's a huge program and in this shows that if you just kind of keep building momentum, people rally around and they'll want to be a part of it back to our schools, one of the biggest schools on campus Wow, we we have about 1300 or so students at the school of communication, and that's because we're doing stuff, but Students want to do or relevant and we're making a difference in their lives and They're ultimately making a difference in the marketplace. I would love to see that catch on with our American advertising Federation Houston chapter as well that we become so popular that we have to buy Space and a bigger room to get together. And as you know, we're talking about this year with with getting more people involved in American advertising Federation, Houston but what you've done, there is just craft a great place for people to go because they know and understand the value and actually the result of what they will have when they get out of there. Very well equipped. You've been doing this for a few years. Just a couple actually more like many years, Larry. Yeah, you see challenges and changes come and go, but the sun rises and sets every day. I've seen it happen. And life goes on. So how do you see all aspects of our industry adapting and perpetuating as we plow through this pandemic? Are we strong? I believe so. I mean, I tell my students right now from hey, job perspective. I've never seen more job. Then there is today. So the Pandemic. Give us and the pandemic take us so On the pandemic began advertising with cut and a lot of people are hurting. And now as things are kind of opening up, believe the Things are happening. I see lots of job opportunities coming down the line, and I think that is definitely a robust industry. And the industry that makes a huge difference in not only economy that but in the daily lives of so many people, But that's that's really affirming. I really appreciate that. What would Larry do? You've heard that phrase before right? W w l D you know that one? I don't know about that. So advice to our community, our students why can't you And shouldn't you ignore and s a C? Why is it impaired? Native that students and schools participate in this wonderful competition. Well, the think the bottom line is if you want to be in the advertising and this tree This is your opportunity to be in the preeminent competition show what you've got. The dedicated to your craft and to be elite, and that's really what I think we should all strive to be. And if that's what you want to do them, This is by far and away the competition to be in and as an employer. People are listening. This is by far and away the type of student that you would want to hire. Down the line. Somebody who's dedicated they usually the vote 20 to 30 hours a week. This doing this on top of our other schoolwork and maybe a part time job. A performance and level and they have the poison the gumption to make a professional presentation and defend their work. With professionals in the room so That exactly why you want to be a part of See, I was right. What would Larry do? I like that. I like it. I like it. I like it. So how about a couple of, uh, Dr Kelly's pieces of advice for students aspiring to be the next batch of advertising legends? What would you say to those folks? Uh, One of the things that I really encourage my students to do is to take a look at themselves and developed their own unique narrative. Their own story and particularly student, you're coming out very difficult to be unique from other students. Yet every student is And I think crafting your own narrative. Sharing your story on how you're different and being different from other people is there's a good thing. To do And that's exactly I think what students need to do to thrive. And in the market, take your path. Develop your personal story, your personal brand, and, uh, And go for it. Wow. Great advice, Larry. Thank you. You know, Houston is so fortunate to have, uh, Larry Kelly here with, uh, as an advertising professional, uh, as a champion of the American Advertising Federation. And as an award winning teacher at the University of Houston at the Jack Valenti School of Communication. Please don't ever stop doing this, Larry. And if you do, just go ahead and keep writing books. That's fine. We'll be okay with that for a little while, but but I really was so enjoyed talking to you. You have such an uplifting well, first of all, you have this This severe connectivity with the importance of doing the right thing and the teaching process and getting people on the right path to get involved in our incredible industry. So I thank you for that. But you're really love this industry man, and it really shows and everything you do, whether it's for the American Add federation, Houston or district 10. Or s a C or add to Houston, You're just having a good time every day, and it shows so I thank you for that, Larry. All right. Thank you. So bottom line is you want to go?

"Many a item from and they see end up in a client's, um Okay. Campaign down the lot. Yeah, that's prized students, though, to have the opportunity to submit, uh, creative to the at ease. Wants to competition is ended. So from a student perspective, they still get to use that. The creative and whatever items that they have produced. With their own portfolios and for their own benefit, But the client ultimately have control over any of the, uh, creative. And Other as never presented during the course of the competition. We all know that the University of Houston is going to step up to the plate and look for a three run homer here. There's no doubt about that. I'm curious as well, Uh, as we are in this Well, what phase of this pandemic with this be? I guess this might be two or maybe three. I'm not sure at this point in time. But as you're back in school, and you're doing the great things that University of Houston what are some of the most asked questions by her students as we're navigating through this crazy crazy time in our history from a health standpoint. Well, um, just kind of bringing it back to the sea. It has been pretty interesting the last few years, so Two years ago. And the pandemic began. And we had to move from face to face to a virtual competition. Yeah, so to kind of pull up. And change gears. On the fly, frankly and and do that, so we had finished our book, and then we have to do a virtual presentation. So we had students over at four different homes that we had to coordinate a Video presentation, So that was quite a feat. Uh, that year the past year. Everything was virtual from the get go. So we had had little experience and on the fly, and then this this year we did a virtual competition this year. We're really excited, and in April it will be face to face, so we'll be kind of back. I am in the swing of things and doing face to face and our our school like I believe all the public schools state schools in Texas. We're face to face with our classes and things are going fine. You always have situations where someone is going to Have Covid or whatever, but I think everyone dealt with it very professionally. And frankly, I've been, um Very heartened by all the students are very, very thoughtful, conscientious. Very safe on their protocols, and they just want, uh, to be back to school on and get back to normal. And I think that that's kind of the just have everybody is what Come back, Let's be safe and let's do what we can do. And we know that being They are together much better situation and being on zoom or Microsoft teams and let's make it happen. Yeah, I think the fact that you're saying in April that, uh, very confidently as well, Thank you for that. Yes, yes, we will be coming back together because this is so vital. And so important, Dr. Larry Kelly is professor of advertising. The Jack Valenti School of Communication. University of Houston had incredible school. You know, Larry, I I know so many people who have come out of that school. And on amazing things in our business. It is just so cool to know that right here in our hometown of Houston, Texas, we have something so incredibly great. Thank you for the things that you do. For our industry. They're all right. Thank you. I you know George Lois is a good friend and a legend in the business of advertising, he writes. Books accepts his books have pictures mostly. Uh, he he almost became a part of F K m a while back. But let's talk about George's philosophy. You know, that was a different time. That was a different day and age. Does George losses, Philosophy still resonate and still start to stand strong today in your eyes? But Think such and it is funny because I actually got the work on a new business presentation with George. Wow. Quite an experience, and he's a uh, why unique individual But what what towards really resonated with me? And I know that he does with all of the clients and work that he does is He won Your brand to break through, and he One. People to be nervous. About what communication is going out wants you to be a bit on the edge, and he wants to push the envelope. And I think that that Exactly the type of communication you need. If you really want to break through today's, you know, increasing clutter of messages out there, right? That's great advice. You know, you've written a ton of of, uh wonderful books on advertising. Uh, is it easy to craft a book Larry? And was it a fun process? And I bet the answer is no. And sometimes not. What do you think? Well, uh, I'm up to Pretending that The next book. And my co authors that I work with. I mean, we kind of have it down now, so it is the process, but I really kind of enjoy the process. And if you embraced kind of doing the work Them, then it's fine. But yes, it can be a grind as well, particularly the editing process, so As you know it. Kind of getting things down. And then the when you're on the 10th edit, and it's not so much fun, but you have to make it. The best product again reminds me of the space between the West Loop. And downtown when you're on memorial heading for the final few miles true, Okay, slow dry at the end. Oh, yeah, and it hurts, But you know, the finish line is ahead, and that's a good thing. You know you are. You are a big believer in momentum. Why is it important to continue the momentum of the competition? Whether it be the You know the student? Uh, national student advertising competition or any type of student conference? Why is it important? Even in a pandemic world now, uh to you that we keep this stuff moving ahead. So were you with we've been pretty successful with S a C And what I use it to show my students is How's that stuff awful and how elite certain students can be. And the proof is then showing students other students work. And if you can keep momentum going with these competitions, not every year, you're going to win. But every year you should have a product that's winning. As judging as you know, just from doing any new businesses is always subjective. And you may have the greatest thing that someone may not like it. But if your quality of work is such that you're going to Stand out. Me. That's the big benefit and the benefit of doing all the competition and then showing that next Generation Next group like a Here's what happened last year, and here's how great these guys did. This is the bar that you guys need to jump over and you just continually get better and better and better and students then start to believe..

"Other things are so basically just making this annoyance stores. Because if i am if i'm seeing these stories of over person who are opposing vaccines for ideological or political reasons I don't really identify with that person. I'm not getting vaccine. Because i had nobody to look after my child. I cannot miss work i don't have health insurance. I think i'm going to get charged right. So there's lots of more nuance to the stories that we are. Unfortunately somehow overseeing and we're not seeing therefore lots of people from our community has done identified with sources in our story. They don't identify with that. Focus on some of these stories at this creates distrust. Who are you writing for right. Who are these stories for So basically these are. I think two best recipes to build this trust. Is i to tell community stores in bring community voices that are diverse in our stores. And i'm not talking about giving equal voice to Antitax because honestly you go with a science right. But getting into the structural problems and not always focus in the story as an individual responsibility right. Because there's just so much to the story that than lots of what we hear about what we folk was in the in the in the coverage i think those are some ways really we can build that trust and perhaps know be more persuasive in these in these kind of communication that we have with with with the with the With the audiences.

"To get vaccinated do news outlets in your view have a moral responsibility and how they report such stories I think that you know in thinking about the way report. These things in and wanting to help to support people in being saved being able to relate to stories is a really important piece of change and so when we think about other situations where people have experienced a lot of change in their opinions in their beliefs about things. Oftentimes it is through close personal experiences with other individuals I'm thinking about for example the lgbtq movement and the way that our culture has changed to be so much more accepting of people across the different spectrums And i think that when it comes to things like hoven in vaccination while know sharing stories about you healthy people dying from it. I think that that is important. So people understand the risks It might be that people are able to relate more to stories where they haven't shared experience whether it is someone that reminds them of someone that they love Or is is consistent with the way that they view the world. So it's hard to say whether it is a moral imperative. But i think that we want to continue to support people in in knowing that we are all in this together.

And while we've recently seen a solid increase in vaccination rates following the rise of delta variant spurred fourth wave of cases hospitalizations political divisiveness remains over vaccine and mask mandates. It makes it a challenge at times to talk about with family friends colleagues without finding yourself in that protracted debate it's dominated social media and of course it leaves those of us in the world of journalism wondering when how often and in what ways we should cover the pandemic. What's responsible and what's not whether the stories we tell them the way we tell them. Serve the public interest. Let's talk through all of that.

The set of challenges this copy nineteen has posed for journalists the news media in general The ground virus maker has so many dimensions Reflexive and the both the of the story is extraordinary so These are really enormous challenges with which the jones have been phased at a time. When unfortunate the media industry has been kind of. Ill prepared to handle the story. And we need to kind of think about the last couple of decades when the media has been hemorrhaging advertising and jobs therefore a because of the structural problems that the industry has faced. They had less bodies People that they could put on the ground to cover this very challenging story to cover. Despite all of these challenges though i think overall all the news media has been on top of the story from the very very beginning a reported in a systematic way has been the top story during this two years for good reasons and overall. I think they have really you know. Despite these challenges have done overall good job in This endemic However there are a couple of issues with with with the story itself which. I'm sure we can elaborate leader a bit more. But this pertain to some of them are some of the lack of maybe some nuances in the story that that We've noticed and they pretend to that to that to this some kind of more story being portrayed as a as a binary story of course. And i think that aspect of the other copied has been maybe predominant predominated the news coverage And when i talk about the binary is portrayed in this depend damage as a black and white kind of issue when actually this as many issues on the ground is very nuanced and has so many dimensions and first lexi's on.

"Parents across. America were furious about the scene. There has been controversy over the violence in indiana jones. Their murders shootings stabbings whippings. Beatings crushing torture. It was almost rated r. instead of pg it wasn't just the mola ram scenes at the beginning of the movie one guy gets impaled on a flaming meet sword and at the end. Dozens of mullah roms cronies fall into alligator infested waters and get ripped to shreds op. Eds in critical reviews about the nonstop. Violence ran for the entire month of may of nineteen eighty-four and publications like the new york times christian science monitor and variety for context. Violence in film and tv was a hot button issue at this time. In one thousand nine hundred to the surgeon. General scientific advisory committee on television and social behavior released a report that showed a relationship between television violence and children being more aggressive alongside this report. Psychologists in the nineteen eighties started publishing academic articles about the threat of increased violence in media. All sorts of art forms were being scrutinized for their depictions and they even had congressional hearings about it five between nineteen eighty two and nineteen eighty-six. This all felt like it came to a head with temple of doom. But that wasn't the end of the parental outrage. Because a few weeks later in june of nineteen eighty-four the spielberg machine released. Another monster into the world literally grandma. They'll be expecting kremlin's released on june eighth nineteen eighty-four was about one guy's mishandling of his strange new pet and how it unleashed an invasion of furby looking creatures in his small town chaos ensues. An audiences saw these little fried chicken loving monsters. Being chopped in half by mom with a kitchen knife exploded in a microwave and diced up in a blender ish but despite all of this it was rated. Pg all the big hits recently indiana jones gremlins and the others have been rated pg parental guidance and a serious debate has erupted this summer over whether pg covers too much territory the x. Rated for violence but then the whole rating system strikes me as crazy anyway. Parents were angry and spielberg who had had a hand and making both temple of doom and kremlin's new. He had a problem. I'm not really a psychologist about this. I'm just saying that. If i had a ten year old i probably would prefer that. He is something else or wait until he's eleven. Yeah just wait. One year and the kit will be good to go so spielberg called up president of the mpaa jack valenti godfather of the rating system and suggested an addition he wanted something between our and pg maybe for younger teens like thirteen. Valenti didn't like the idea. Initially he told reporters that he was opposed to any change in the fragile system and the mpaa reminded parents that pg doesn't stand for pretty good basically saying hey you're a apparent provide some guidance but the hubbub of the summer of eighty four left. No doubt there was a huge gap in the rating system and some powerful players in the film industry. Really put the pressure on so eventually valenti caved. Hollywood confirmed today that it will add one more category to its fifteen year old film rating system. This one is called. Pg thirteen it is meant to urge parents to show strong caution before letting their children under the age of thirteen ten some movies new rating is a reaction to parental. Pg thirteen was born on july first nineteen eighty-four. The reading meant that a film intended for wide audiences could include more curse words sex and drug use and that kids under thirteen. Probably shouldn't see it though. Parents weren't required to be present. A mike r. rated movies some people liked the rating. Some thought it didn't go far enough either way. The pg thirteen rating had a real impact at the box office. Some of the highest grossing films over the years. Titanic avatar all the avengers movies they're all. Pg thirteen r. ratings. Make millions of dollars less compared to their pg thirteen counterparts which makes sense movies with broad appeal that pushed the envelope just a little bit further sell more tickets spielberg actually called pg thirteen the hot sauce rating that would draw people in after the break. We'll find out how films even get their ratings in the first place whether it's the lucrative pg thirteen or one of the other ones plus. There's a very real war on of lingus in the movies it's relevant. I promise before the break. We learned all about the motion picture. Association of america's rating history and the power of pissed off parent. And all. this got me wondering who the hell even makes these rating decisions. Who decides what is and isn't appropriate for movie goers while since the system was created in nineteen sixty eight ratings have been decided by a rotating board of about ten anonymous parents all with kids between the ages of five and fifteen they're part of the classification and rating administration also known as cara and they're housed in the mpaa's los angeles office rating films as their fulltime job and every day. The small group sits down together in a room and watches about two to three movies. We don't know a whole lot about the process. They keep under wraps on purpose but what we do know as they fill out some kind of form discuss and vote on what the film should be rated. The majority wins. And this is what we get.

"Symbols. We're all familiar with them. There are shortcuts do vital information that's why to familiarize your with the movie ratings symbols which will be used by this theater. We present the following guide for parents and young people. This is a psa by the motion. Picture association of america or the mpaa from nineteen seventy explaining their new rating system to movie going audiences. It is designed to inform parents about the suitability of movie content for doing their children g. All ages admitted general audiences. Gp all ages admitted parental guidance suggested are restricted under seventeen requires accompanying parent or adult guardian. It's largely the same system we use now. Aside from a few changes like instead of gp. It's now pg for parental guidance. And the x ray as now nc seventeen and as that clip makes clear. The primary goal is to help parents decide what their kids should and shouldn't see but let's go back in time for a minute because before this new system was introduced the movie making industry operated under a much more rigid system the hays code starting in nineteen thirty four at bard filmmakers from doing a whole bunch of stuff like showing nudity or using profanity portraying interracial relationships adultery homosexuality anything deemed immoral even childbirth was censored because showing the pain of giving birth. Might put a damper on. You know the joy of family life compliance with the hays code was basically censorship. The system regularly forced filmmakers to change the content of their films. Like for example. Betty boop had to change out of her flapper dress and into a long skirt and stockings and in the movie version of who's afraid of virginia woolf the film makers were forced to remove the word screw even though the phrase hump the hostess was cleared for some reason how about the hostess hunt out those enter a man named jack valenti picture smallest guy. Charlie chaplin eyebrows impeccable style valenti was texas advertising executive turned dc insider and in nineteen sixty six. He was named head of the motion picture association of america at this time film studios and directors were starting to push back on the code and valenti could see. It was time to make a change so he came up with the as new rating system which he said would not work like the hays code. I wouldn't defend some of these movies if my life and job dependent on it but we are not censored please understand that we are not censored the death of the hays code and the birth of this new rating system set off a revolution in film sometimes called the hollywood renaissance or american new wave cinema. Such a miserable brosse sleeps with the fishes this period from the late sixties into the seventies produced classic films like the godfather chinatown. Taxi driver. You talking to me. These weren't the hyper sanitized. Movies of the hayes era abuse and kyoto. They were gritty profane violent. All the juicy stuff this time period also brought about the birth of the hollywood blockbuster films like jaws and star wars as a toddler and as a three and four year old. I mean it was star wars wallpaper in my bedroom star. Wars sheets on the bed are two d two and c. Three peel on birthday cakes. My wife put iota on number is cool. That's jason resign professionally. He's a journalist for the washington post but at heart. He's a george lucas mega fan. And as a kid jason's parents would take him to see. All the big blockbusters like star wars and indiana jones. These movies were rated. Pg all ages permitted with parental guidance. Suggested but that was about to change all. Thanks to one of jason's favourite adventurers indiana jones that fearless wisecracking archaeologist is back on the big screens in theaters across the country. Tonight and that spells ammo any y money at the box office. It was may nineteen eighty-four. Jason couldn't wait to go to the release of the second. Indiana jones film the temple of doom. The theater was packed for the summer blockbuster produced by george lucas and directed by none other than steven spielberg. Oh my god. I was so comped. Up and i remember so old school theater. Big kind of cushy seats there will definitely snacks. Some people would get the red vines and turn it into a straw and stick it in their drink. The lights dem. The curtain opens and the movie begins immediately. Audience is thrown into the middle of the action. And there's this really swank seeing the shanghai nightclub and poison indiana jones. And you know there's an antidote and the diamond and then they escape china with that. He's off on a quest for fortune and glory to india to track down the enchanted sankara stone. It's got all the ingredients of an indiana jones movie. The hat the web. That's score the devilish harrison ford charm. And of course the villain mola ram. He's got evil written all over him. A cult leader with bulging eyes lack red robes and a head piece with giant horns sticking out each side of his head. This guy named mola ram makes human sacrifices. by pulling out beating hearts from people's chests burst into flames he drops these human sacrifices who are still alive without their hearts into this molten lava. If you're a person of a certain age you probably remember this scene in detail. Just like jason. Maybe even did the weird heart. Police saudi thing with your hand on the playground. Maybe gave you your first ever panic attack but jason actually took it pretty well. It didn't give me nightmares or make me want to rip anybody else's harder and i've never wanted somebody's harder.

"Or pg or are we stigmatizing too many grownup films by giving them an ex that rating was a kiss of death. Wants a movie was given an ex. Most theaters wouldn't play it. And most movie goers would never be able to see it. Roger had some firsthand experience with a rating system beyond the value of the dolls. The body showbiz tire he'd written earlier in his career have been rated x. When it was released in one thousand nine hundred ninety for years afterward. Roger publicly lobbied for new rain to be created. One wouldn't have the same stigmas. The dreaded ex was an issue that didn't get much traction until nineteen ninety by then the rating systems flaws have become obvious a few well-made but vary adult films including henry portrait of a serial killer have been released without a rating at all causing confusion that year. Roger debated jack valenti the head of the national tv. They're back and forth took place on an hour. Long cisco neighbor special and cbs drew more than eleven million people. Possibly the biggest primetime audience of gene ras career jeff. There's not a person watching this show. Who doesn't know hardcore pornography as we're talking about movies like the cook the thief the wife and her lover wild orchid or angel heart or nine and a half week. What are you saying about those films. I'm saying that they do not deserve to be lumped with the ex and there's no place for them in the are the accurate away from you. All i'm saying well that's your opinion. Roger to parents have america believe that this rating system is quite suitable to their needs. And frankly we don't make the rating system for the britain cisco and we don't make it for producers not long afterward the mpaa introduced a new rating for adult films nc seventeen unlike x. rated movies an nc seventeen film could in theory play in mainstream movie theaters. So if you saw the nc seventeen rated showgirls on the big screen you have gene and roger to thank again. I'm not implying. They were solely responsible for making that change possible. But there's support definitely helped there were other battles to be fought during those years. Some of them. Taking place outside hollywood in the mid ninety s gene and roger wrapped up in a very public fight between the movie industry and bob dole the republican senator who just launched presidential run in one thousand nine. Five dole gave a speech attacking hollywood for what he called the mainstreaming of deviancy he singled out recent hits like true romance and natural born killers. It seemed like the only movie he really liked with forrest gump. Dole's comments were picked up in newspapers across the country and supported by michael medved. One of the critics who replaced gene and roger stink previews a decade earlier. It was all part of a growing concern throughout the nineties. Movies with sex and violence were damaging. The country's moral fiber gene and roger were invited to the national press club in washington. Dc where they gave their thoughts on dole's comments in a crowded room full reporters gene went off partly because he didn't believe i'll movies are automatically evil and partly because senator hadn't even seen the movies. He was railing against two gene as both an expert. Movie watcher and an expert debater dole's intellectual dishonesty was more offensive than anything on the screen. I have three children young children. I care about this deeply. And i try and talk to them about why they thought it was bad so they feel comfortable exercising their opinion that's carrying about movies more than saying they're awful out there in hollywood. That's so easy it's so cheap. It's so beneath us. As we conclude this millennium gene and roger saw themselves as movie critics not activists they can afford pick a few public fights especially with hollywood. They knew the studios never fought back and even if they tried. Gene and roger were pretty much untouchable. Despite being regular guests on leno and letterman and despite the fact that their own show was produced by disney gene. And roger were in a lot of ways showbiz outsiders during the twenty five years together. They remain in chicago far from the studios in l. a. And from the big media empires in manhattan in one thousand nine hundred seven appearance on phil donahue show gene explained why he puts so much distance between himself and the powers that be virginity. Do you think you have to have Do you go to lunch. With producers sure directors producers directors. Liars we live in chicago so we don't really do. I prefer not to have the meal. I prefer to do the interview for my newspaper. The chicago tribune so that. I'm a when i meet these people. I am a working journalist. Trying to find out information that they don't want to give me gene. Didn't want to get too friendly with the people making movies in his early days at the tribune. He had starstruck encounters with legends. Like cary grant and john wayne whom gene wants took for late night barter around chicago. But by the time he was a nationally known critic gene was far more weary of hollywood. He skipped the festivals at often through together filmmakers and critics and even gene champion of filmmaker. Like carl franklin. He tried not to get too close. He didn't want anything to influence his reviews. I think it was gene. Who i saw it. I said you know. I don't know if it's appropriate for me to thank you. And he's No it's not plus. I may not like your next movie. Roger was much more comfortable being around talent. He loved interviewing actors on the set of their films and he was a regular festivals rate have long meals with directors. It was part of his job of course. But it's not hard to imagine. Roger being bemused by it all here. He was a kid from small town. Illinois hanging out with movie stars on one thousand nine hundred ninety special roger cruise the south of france on a private boat with one of the biggest names in hollywood and you could see the look delight on his face with this. Is roger ebert. We're on the way to see my new film at the cannes film festival. Right here in beautiful downtown. San roger develop friendships was several filmmakers over the decades eastwood robert altman able to varney and it was a can that roger. I got to know quentin tarantino. They met at the festival in nineteen ninety. Two while tarantino was promoting his debut reservoir dogs. which would eventually get a thumbs down from both gene and roger a few years later though roger got his first look at a movie that soon became one of his nineties. Obsessions pulp fiction. I command so roger. what do you think goes It's either one of the best movies i've ever seen or it's one of the worst and i need to see it again before i decide but i knew i had by that point in time. If he's saying that and he saw it again and then he started becoming like the prophet it. He way he used to show a citizen kane and stop it from time to time and point out this point that he started doing screenings of pulp fiction not long afterward gene. Roger filmed a special dedicated to the work of tarantino who at that point had directed just to movies and in that episode. They stood by their original thumbs down review reservoir dogs rogers. Relationships filmmakers never seem to affect his reviews movies they made in nineteen ninety-four robert altman. Another rogers favorite directors was about to release his latest film. A fashion industry satire titled rate aware. That's when roger received a call from one of the film's producers harvey weinstein. Roger was crazy about ready to wear men's chaz recalls harvey was trying to talk him out of a bad review. I do remember that he was like. Oh but you know that he's really sick. Roger he's gonna die in. Roger said you know what i really doubt that my review or.

"Like with david jacobs head on the show a couple times and also kind of interleaved those interviews with a woman named mary rodwell. Have you ever heard of mary. Rodwell show show well known nice. Nice very nice person. So they're kind of going back and forth on this issue that you explore in the book of the goody versus batty evily t versus spiritual loving here to bring transformation kind of et and david jacobs. Who is it's important to know. I think if i can interject i think david jacobs and a bunch hopkins have to be understood from an atheist perspective. That's what they see. When you talk spirituality those guys it just complete they go. You're not mean there's not any of it anyway. So why even talk about it. And that's how they see it but they also have some pretty solid evidence. They bring back that. That says that i mean like david jacobs. Some people criticize him that. He's not a professional hypnotist. Well i gotta tell you as a pretty smart guy. I think he trained well enough and it sounds like his protocol was pretty good. He tried to intentionally mislead people. You know he would say okay. Now go over to the corner of the craft and they'd go. Okay wait a minute. There is no corner of crafty goes. Okay yeah that is confirming what you said anyways. I don't want to long in the story but being david jacobs. I'm interviewing mary red bull. They're going back and forth one sank. Evil batty t sense. People back rapes people which comes through again and again. I don't know how how we understand. That inside of our culture is anything other than the ultimate intrusion of our personal space and that is reported and then go to mary. Rodwell says look deeper. You know there's a spiritual thing but here's the point. David jacobs one. I'm sure is. This is a project this program. This is like as we would understand it in our world. Somebody's trying to get some shit done right. So then i go. Manic say merry. What about that long pause and she goes. Yeah well it is definitely a program. They are doing some kind of genetic manipulation that means they are doing something. There is an intention allergy to it. There is a directive to it. And so i guess i'd throw that out there and what do you think about that. We jump into that other space of other rea- you know other dimension and stuff you know. Well listen as jack valenti and other experts have said if that's the case they're very bad scientists because they have to keep doing the same experiment over and over again they want to know how reproduction reproduction works. So they take the guk. The man and woman sometimes people who know each other and make them have sex in front of the alien beings so they can understand reproduction so as one anthropologist told me for my books you don't need to do that. You just get a hygiene manual reproductions. Nothing ought to figure out to make people go through that again and again and again and to you know examine the bodies again and again through all these medical procedures that you know the experiences detail. At great length the actually describing the instruments used a. So why do they have to do it again. and again..
