"I felt so let down, and then they did the second one with the with the Predator Alien Hybrid, and I was like all right, just just stop. Just just hang up. I appreciate a requiem, because at least the aliens or scary in the. Like a mean mother because it's like Yup, they looked like overweight pro wrestlers in a VP one now absolutely didn't look like predators, and they had like a frigging fight scene where they were throwing each other around, and it's like that they're supposed to be based Samurai man. It's true well that yeah, so that that my big thing. The universe was like that's my. That's my home. Is that universe? That's pretty dope the the last question rob hotseat. Obviously being in the industry. What is your favorite fight scene of all time? Damn Dude. I wish I had like a quick go to answer for that I wish I had a quick to answer for all your questions. Because your podcast they're going to be cut to. Pieces are going to be four hours long. I have a couple that are my absolute favorites one of them that always comes, and I think it's just the one that always pops out is there's this final fight in this Korean film called the man from Nowhere Yup Lovie you've seen that one. Yup, so truth be told I've seen the actual movie one and a half times. I've watched that final fight like maybe a hundred times like I've I've written like little facebook post essays about just how much I love and adore that final fight. It's not an action, heavy movie now four or five fights in the higher film, but that final final throwdown between him and the gangsters and the assassin is so poetic. The musical score is the best music I've ever heard to a fight scene ever and the amount of character that goes into that moment from his switch moment when the macguffin in the scene is like destroyed, I'm gonNA. Call them and I want to spoil spoiler force, but it's going end when the Bagai shines on and tries to torment the good guy, and then when the guy has switched moment, you just see all of a sudden. It's a fight scene where our hero like okay Batman scares bag is no, no, no, the punisher scares bag is no no, no, no this. This Korean character makes. In the room absolutely terrified of him in his quest for revenge, and it's like it's so beautiful in the sense that you know that this character is so hurt and so damaged. He's going to make these people pay for it and I'm not a huge revenge porn sorta guy, but it's so real and so well done, and it's one of the only times in a fight scene where shaky, Cam. Because the shaky cam conveys the perspective of people watching this guy being absolutely terrified of how he's moving, and they're not able to keep up with them, and they're just like a worse crude. Oh, we're dead. This guy we. We should not have pushed him so that's definitely one of my top one, and then the only other one that I'll say today is kind of keep it a little. Little Bit Short Yup is and this is weird because I'm not saying Jackie Chan. Jet, Li I do think there's amazing fight scenes from all those guys. I love the final fight and way of the Dragon with Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris the lake, one of my other favorite final fights stuff that I pull inspiration from what I try and make fight scenes is actually the fight between Mad Max. Max and Furioso idea and the bride and knocks in fury road up where they first meet, and everything is a weapon. Every characters involved and every shot tells the story, and it's quick cut. Yup, put all Senator Franken waited, and it's just like every moment something interesting happened, and the physicality is fantastic and again the music is incredible, and the performances are just. It's like holy crap. Everything just went to. To Hell and these characters are literally fighting every single second. One of them could die, and that is so different from a martial arts movie fight where like people are throwing punches at each other a hundred times over, and it's like well. There's risk but not yet. Yup, every beating fight is like so ten like he's pulling out shotgun. She's pulling out a fire hose. He's in a mass like. I I love and I think it's one of the best teams to come last twenty years I've you know it was funny? Just a I did want to add one thing I enjoyed about the man from nowhere is i. was a big Fan of the movie, the professional, so yeah, yeah yeah. Yeah, so I love a lot of that inspiration that was in that movie that because I just enjoyed the cinematography of that movie, and how well it was done, and the man from nowhere definitely did that, so it's actually I was really blown away. You pick that that's that's such an underrated flick Fran. And especially in its aged well to know it really has like it's still completely watchable. Back and watch the whole thing again. I just I do remember loving the story when I watched it I. Just I haven't had the time to sit down and watch it all over again since. It does pull from Leon, and then it's also like hey, for everybody that the movie taken go watch. This is the Korean version of taken. The gravitas is so much higher the Pfizer so much better. I don't dislike the fight and take I. Think they're fine for what they are, but like and I love Liam Neeson's. I love me some Liam Neeson's. This this this guy is so good in this movie and It's definitely one of the Ba-. It's such it's such an archetype now when you think of things like the last of us and bioshock infinite in every other video game how there's like some big strong older guy, taking care of a young woman hundred percent. Like you're saying like Leon which if you watch the full director's cut of the professional? You're like okay. This is starting to go into creepy projection territory. Could could not freak me out here and tell me about your underage girl. Power fantasy like I actually like the theatrical cut better, because while I do appreciate those teams for the performances I. Do see why the audience would react negatively to that. WAYPOINT. Basan could have gone with but I love. I cry at the end of the professional man I love that movie but the man from nowhere from what I remember is just. It doesn't have that part to it. It's very genuine relationship because this guy is just likely on. He's Kinda on the fringe. He just wants to protect this girl and then someone screws with him, and they make the wrong choice by. By doing it and the ending killed you 'cause you don't know which way it's going to go there. You go so good. It's so good. The the the last part of our interview I like to call reach one teach one just to give our listeners something actionable that they can work on on the way out for you especially with such a diverse career I'm just going to keep it very simple. For someone that's a starting a whether. They're starting out in the in the stunt industry starting out as a martial artist. What's one piece of actionable advice? You give a person that's just starting out. As really great, because I was asked that question earlier by by this student. That I'm trying to consult with She's moving to Kansas. City. I don't like I said I don't know. Missouri or I thought it was Oklahoma. anyways, She hasn't done a lot of martial arts before and I was like well. What's your physical background? And she was like I did tennis and basketball volleyball, and like great. You're you're already so far ahead because you have any physical background so like step number one is like..

"The first thing I did was go to gymnastics gym and get a job there, so I had A. Part Time Job coaching gymnastics which I always kept throughout my production years so I was always still involved in gymnastics world. and. I was able to use those facilities that I was still coaching at to practice, and then I figured out. You know rigs that. The stunt people used and then translate that into You know they Hong Kong Style and just looking at you. Know watching choreography in Hong Kong Movies Jackie Chan. Jet Li and things like that I just started experimenting, and it's it's you know. It just progressed from there. So then eventually you know I, I! Started being used for different movies where we were using a lot more wire work, and then you know it just. snowballed. And and you know then we, we would on the job, and we would figure out choreography, and we would do the same process that we used on the Matrix where you know, we would spend a lot more time rehearsing the choreography, which was not a typical. Western style of of choreographing and you know we would. We would work on just wire tricks in that process I connected with I, started my own stunt team And that I brought on a guy named Sam hardgrave. WHO's now one of its stock, top stunt or neighbors? In the world? He coordinated The marvel movies avengers civil war and He actually he's got a movie coming out now. that he actually directed extraction with Chris Hemsworth but he and I basically you know we. We would have our guys together. Two three times a week, just working on choreography working on skills working on tricks putting together filming techniques working on wire work techniques weapons and. So it, it all progress from there. I was still teaching gymnastics I was teaching Wushu. Kung Fu by this time which I still teach to this day so. He's been involved in a lot of aspects of teaching and that that help me keep my hand in the game when it came to you know progressing and learning and understanding they are. So, not long after you worked on the Matrix, you went over to work on Star Trek Enterprise I knew you were in the pilot episode broken bow, Van, and then later in future tense from season to. Again another alien character in season four so. I gotta ask. What is the casting process like? I don't perform on star. Trek show when it comes to stunts a lot of times. The stunt coordinators look to the people that they. Know and I'd known this stunt coordinator for Awhile. We've worked on several shows together or ready, and he knew my skills and I. You know I invited him to my. Rehearsals for other things, and and you know he, he coordinated me on on several other shows already, he knew my skills and he knew you know we. Talk about what you're doing and you. You see what other people can do, so there was a level of trust that the stunt coordinator news. I could get the job done then when it comes down to it, he pulls in the people that he knows that can can do the job properly, and we did a real lineup with he brought in. You Know Twenty thirty people. We all sit in the lineup, and then casting director, or the you know the producers or director, or whoever was involved, kicked us out of the lineup, and said you look like you know the the character that we wanted Cetera et Cetera, so it came down to I think there were. For five of us, initially, stunt sued Lebron on the the first pilot episode. that. used. And just viewers you're watching these episodes back at his episode airs. No at tells which stunt. He performed on those episodes, so he can pick you out. It's really difficult to tell. Went through enterprise recently. And I. Watched and I went. Oh, yeah I remember that and I kind of forgotten some of the things. I actually as as a soula. Von I can't even remember which episodes they were, but I got to do. The the first teleport Where where We had a big fight I I came in. We did a big wire trick and I came down and I attack one of one of the enterprise crew, and then I took over the. The control room and I saved myself out I. I can't remember what the term is for that when. teleporting off the ship but I got to disappear off the ship. They really funky cool CGI thing where I'm actually crawling across the ceiling upside down like a spider, so half of that was. Me and then half of that was a CGI pickup and then there. I'm all over the place the we're. We're falling down. We're getting shot. Like I said there were like for five in the initial episode. Anytime you see somebody, get shot. It's it's one of us, but there you know i. did some really Nice little little high falls and some wire tricks. I did a wire trick where I jumped up onto a shuttle in that same scene, and then I went into the transporter room. What else did we do on that? It was it was actually I. Complain About it to this day. the especially on that first episode the The costuming that we were wearing shula bone costumes were basically neoprene wetsuits So pretty thin. costumes. With no room for preparing, so when we had to take a fall, we really took a fall and the hardest part I found was when we were on a spaceship. There's no. Room for error. When it comes to falling, 'cause you're falling. We had metal grading on the on the deck of. The ship. So, we were falling down basically on metal grading. Doing one back fall where I was just hanging from my back..

"What brought your family to Georgia and then to bar Sto Because my stepfather was in the military without my stuff. I don't think I could of navigated or been able to last. Hollywood is African American guy from Paris Texas. And he's my dad. He's the man that raised me. We come from a big huge family of African American civil rights participants. My Dad March with King. My Grandfather Papa was like the first African American police officer in Paris Texas One of my aunties is arguably like the first black nurse in Nevada. He grew up in Paris. Texas where you know when he would share stories and his cousins shares family reunions they. They'll with racism on a different level and growing up in Georgia. I remember there were certain things that would happen at school and I would come home and I would go down. We'VE GOT TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL. And you gotTa help me. You GotTa complain and he would say well. This is your introduction to the real world. He goes son. I'M NOT GONNA be able to share with you. What a black man is going to have to deal with America? But if you're asking to have the same type of credit if that's what you're going for you're never gonNA get it. You have to be the first one there last one to leave and still might get any accolades and you have to do it. For the Ri- reason yesterday for yourself and winning at the end of the day. Even if you get no credit you get no love. There's no popularity you know you did in the people that will now. So this is your first lesson. Can't get mad. I was going to school and complaining and yelling then then we become what they want. He silently just keep going and in Hollywood. I would always have to remind myself Yo. It's all about rejection. If I give up now they win right and I think that's where just in the lie we have. This kind of like sports mentality is that you beat us. That fuels us like okay. I'll show you. I think that's the only thing that kept us going because if it was for fame money we probably would quit. We want to quit long time ago. Right having that perspective of the African American experience that my dad would go through their kids that would throw rocks at him and his cousin walking industry and they threw rocks back and his grandfather. I it was a police officer in the town and Big Daddy came to pick up. The Kid said never do that again. Because this time you will get lynched right so if you know me getting in a fight with some raise this bullies you know. I'm not getting lynched. I'm just getting beat up. But at that time he we get lynched so he goes you live in a different time but use it as fuel right so I so identify with that. 'cause I received the same message from my Taiwanese immigrant parents you know but but in a totally different form you know and that whole mentality of like. I'll show you like I love that. I I think like when I first started writing about Asian American stuff and twenty twelve. You know. There wasn't a huge audience for it. People didn't really consider it serious journalism and I was like you know over the last couple of years. You know like every article you know every every everything you do is like an argument. You know you're trying to win that argument with your haters actually. Yeah what made you move to Los Angeles? 'cause I want to be an actor there?

He's GonNa do Kung Fu and I don't WanNa do that and we're watching it. It was really wonderful beautiful art house film and he has a romantic interest. That is I think she was a French actress right and I was like it's possible. I went back to and Hon Jason Scott Lee down. I hunted him down going. I need to know how he got here. Who did he study with was his process? Because like who were my mentors we all need our Jordan. We all need our Kobi's and if we don't see our face up there right like what. What's what's the path right. Like Jackie Chan Jet Li. They're amazing at what they do right there icons but I don't share any of their experience. Their natives there stars in their own country. So who's my big brother? So I said I'M GONNA make Jason Scali my big brother so I was doing extra job. I found in the back of a Korean newspaper. It was Thank COM SECURITY FOR.

"The neighborhood like I thought I was special. You know then I met the Chino the block over and I was like Oh shit okay. There's more of us. Yeah not all that she knows are Asians like sometimes. There's just guys Filipino guy. Who Looks Asian? Yeah Yeah Yeah is there something. Tell us why you rappkay town so hard in all of your your music in your public life. It's kind of a beautiful thing to see and you still live in canton right. Yeah and the funny thing about it is when I was growing up. I wasn't embraced in Cape Town. Because K town during that time was like the ACN pride era where you had the super like Asian pride and your family has increased and during the riot so we grew up all around ad. And I was very k town but I was kind of an outcast amongst the Asian kids who are more cooler like Long White T.'s. Bangs smoking cigarettes in the parking lot. Like I wasn't part of that like I was a nerdy like underground hip hop pop punk like Weirdo Kid. You know and and I dressed like a member of weezer with like glasses and braces so I was into weird indeed. Shit you know our our shows and things like that so but then I started battle. Rapping is when all of a sudden the Asian community started like riding with me. You know all of a sudden all these Asian neighborhood gangster dudes was like Oh man. You're representing for days in. Because I was like killing it on the videos defending Asian people. You know because I wanted to like. They're attacking me. And Douse away. I was defending my battle rap so actually identity driven in tow superior how opponents come up with bars against each other. Yeah I talk about the saliva when I started battle rapping when I learned a lot about what people think about Asians or what they know about Asians and I realize it's not that much the same. Exactly they they know like five things to hit you with. That's when you realize own. Damn like these are the stereotypes. These are the only things people really know. Or even there's a lot of things you reference them to like celebrity like you look like this guy so does always only like three motherfuckers. Jackie Chan Jet Li. You know what I'm saying I'm Lou. It was like those three. I mean. Now it's like you know you can Pi- get roasted with more names which I'm like. Oh we made it now. They get roasted with ten celebrities. That's representation but you're right there. Yeah Yeah Yeah now. I don't even think I know all the famous Asians anymore. It used to be like every single one that came along. It'd be like Oh man like an Asian space. I'm going to Google everything about this person now. Like twelve famous Asians in. I'm like even like trying to do this. Podcast don't even know if I got in battle right. Now if I go pipe leaks. Say something like Commun- Aquafina or something like that. I don't think they're going to be like look at Henry. Golding over here like I think they're gonNA do that. Definitely make like crazy rotations. Referees stuff like well. That's one thing I really love about your work within the battle rap. World's especially because seeing a lot of what you did there including what you do with your character prospect in the Joseph. Kahn directed battle APP SATIRE BODIED WHICH. I highly recommend which you're great and thanks. It was the easiest role playing battle rap. Exactly Yeah But one thing. I really love about what you've done in that space. Is You sort of turn the lens preemptively on that kind of easy racism? And you're like if you're gonNA come at me about these things like better than I can do. Because you're you're just being lazy and I I like that even with Asian Americans in entertainment right now in comedy too. I feel like there's a lot of reaction but there's not a lot of action in like how you rebuttal those that anger channel that anger. You know it's like to me. I see the way Sern Asian. Comedians react on twitter. And I'm like you're more angry than funny you know and you're a comedian. You know or a writer. I'm like why aren't you responding with some Funny Shit? That would have more of an impact. You've spent so long cultivating this music career of yours and evolved within that as dumbfounded. But you've recently really branched out more into acting. Tv and film. We've seen you in bodied year in detention before that on power power. Those like where I TV thing. Yeah what's what's been behind that branching out with the you've wanted to do for a long time for sure. Yeah I was in a when I was a kid like ten or eleven years old. I saw some thing on TV or they're looking for child actors and it was a scam thing where they charge a little money. You get head shots and all this shit but I did it. I dragged my mom to go do it and I got an agent and I was like I was doing commercial work. I wasn't like a playstation one commercial and like I grew up on television so I was like little attention whore child. I wanted to be an entertainment early on and then gone into high school and gum heavy into music and smoking mad weed. I got more into music. You know. So that's Kinda how it naturally happened. But I've always wanted to be a comedian actor being TV in film. That was my first love from like when I was young and now I feel like I was able to kind of come back to it and it was helpful that I had a little bit of cloud. Do the dumbfounded name to kind of get into rooms and pitch stuff and so I'm Kinda blessed in that way you know that I have had some experience in other departments to me. Fueled the actor career. My Ex questions about that and it's going to sound a little bit too nice of a compliment. I think it's just kind of what I think. You're a really good rapper. You know you're really funny. You Act like I've always kind of thought of us like Asian wills. Thanks man you know and I'm just I'm always sitting here wondering like why isn't dumbfounded in more stuff. Why isn't he more famous? And and so. I thought I'd ask you like why. Don't you think crazy? Rich Asians drug. You would've killed nine. I mean I just think gets. Its timing really for me to you know. I think I'm more aware of myself to you. Know and we comedy you kind of need that and you gotta GonNa grow into this person. Who's a little bit more vulnerable and could talk about stuff especially as a rapper? That's like a John. Rowe were reflects or you put a person on a lot you know. And it's hard to be a rapper and comedian. At the same time I feel like rappers take themselves like too serious a lot of times you have to tap into like more of a vulnerable. You can't take yourself too seriously as a comedian. You know I mean that's the complete opposite. I feel like when you express yourself as an artist like go to John. Yeah but it's changing I think for rappers exchanging allow you have dudes like drake. Who's willing to be silly and stuff? But that's kind of a newer thing really in hip hop there was cast back then but in general overall you know. I think we're seeing more of this like I'm a normal guy. Like little dicky to like you know Yeah I did you start being Asian American at your job for me like it was when I started writing about Asian American issues started advocating for more Asian American representation in the newsroom. And for me. It's it's similar like I for a long time in my career didn't WanNa lean into that. I wanted to be come respected in my own right. Who who I am. I think everyone goes to that in their job. You have like same way. You know terrified of the pigeonhole. Yeah like I'd get interviewed on like I was on this Carson Daley thing and they were like this is the Korean American rapper dumbfounded. I was like. Why was that even like I rap in English? You know what I'm saying. I rap in English but then I was like you know what fuck it. It's actually a huge part of my identity in a at that realization made me lean into it a lot more because I realized I hop on stage and whether or not I just want to be respected as a rapper like they see your current Asian Dude on stage. You can't hide that part like that's why one of the first things they even think before award and comes out of your mouth. You know what I'm saying. It is a part of your identity and I think you have to come to terms with that. Yeah you you. I remember interviewing you again at the exhibit at the Chinese American Museum. And you said something about how you know my side of myself with something that I shied away from Oh that more and then like started embracing and yeah so what caused that a lot of the battle stuff like like what. I talked about earlier like that one Asian gangsters that came up to me. It's like you're holding it down for people like you know like like in the words of Comedienne awards dead Prez. It's bigger than hip hop like. That's that's that moment where it became bigger than hip hop for me where I was like. Oh this is some other shit too. It's it's it's hip hop but it's something else too and I think that happens a lot of hip hop artists to. That's why hip hop is such a special genre in that culture because it's the music but it's really the things that people rap about in the music is totally relate to that like being introduced as a Korean American rapper. And you just want to be a rapper right like you know the things that like to identity. I feel like you know. American culture has made us feel ashamed of them or something like made them feel like they're encore something like I'm a taiwanese-american but if someone says that in the room when the wrong context going be like why did you say that well the thing about it is it's like no one really respects anybody who's ashamed of who they are. You know it could be Asian. It could be Latino black like if you're a shame yourself like no one respects that you know and I don't want other kids to kind of feel the same way. I did too gone up in that way. I think the more specific you get. What your experiences in music or art it resonates more universally well. That's again like why I really love when you rap about where you're from because it paints is really vivid very specific picture. You're proud of it. You made an entire song about cafe blue. I'm very that's the thing about me like I'm all. My songs are like very specific to very specific as I don't just make our love song. I'll make like very specific thing in a relationship. That's always been my thing cafe. Blue is the power goes to get John Creating. It's the Korean entertainers like bar. One night. You'll go there and you'll see like Daniel Day Kim there with like us Lee Aquafina me and then struggling actors complaining about the Industry Type Shit. I Yeah Yeah Yeah. There's I mean there's great food spots all around that particular bar but it's not like the it's not the most popular bar but it is the bar that's been around for a while and like a lot of Asian Americans have passed. David chose you know Eddie hongs and John and people.

Chan's wow you off whow my what a world. Let's give some love to Chris. Tucker think well so. Did you know Chris? Tucker aside from Friday. I didn't think so black assault things in More showers his biggest fan ball. He warned he warned me over with his performance in Russia. Okay yeah so I was definitely a fun of him. I didn't 'cause I mentioned to you while watching it. I didn't Really Watch Chris. Tucker when he was out so he kinda feels like a blend of Eddie Murphy and Chris. Rock to me Arkansas. And it's just because I haven't really me about the time I was supposed to probably consume I can see that. But he's he does so few people who could have done this role like he did without coming off as complete astles. Okay Yeah Yeah actually. So what the fuck that? He carried out. You're like in the fast in fast calment and he was walking up to the FBI ability as he'd rather those like give it. I don't get people like that people that just lack self awareness and they just they just expect things to be given to them but the difference with his character is. He's really malicious in any way. So I think we give him a lot of graces his heart on his sleeve so his is is definitely putting himself out there. Like it doesn't mean bad by any of it and then you have him like flirting in the first movie as well Our Record Oregon. The movie doesn't get made now. Well it didn't get made into these staged cancel. That's not why go cancels gob each Like it's crossing a lot of Some of the is that we tend to see you running out of toilet paper to wipe your ass use the script it just can we talk about the TV. Repeat for like two seconds The cussing crop. I think that was the biggest issue. Well it was such an iconic film franchise that you couldn't not associate the act is personalities to the characters because you think about Brett Ratner again. He was a fanta. Jackie Chan so obviously. Jackie Chan was at the epicenter. And then you had Chris Tucker improvising a lot of his lion said. These actors brought a lot into these roles. So it's hard not to associate them when you would watch. Tv Roberto of it. And I think especially with cod. His character Chris Tucker's character. They didn't want to play it too hot because then people will be like. Oh He's trying to Krista but what it did was he fell flat. And you didn't want to root for him. You didn't even care for him. It kind of reminds me you know when you watch like Adam and dragon ball volition. I feel like just for fun. We should cover that. One of these days Aside from the fact that the Chinese GRANDPA had a white grandson. That's a story for another day. Like fifty cent having eighty babies like Boma had like one blue stripe in her hair so it kind of like sometimes when you have like anime live action kind of waters down the vibrancy of the source material. I felt like that's what happened to the TV shirt off Hollywood just lazy writing. 'cause lifted Abeille from the script of the original movie and executed poorly. Because they didn't want to because they didn't say. Do you understand the words coming out of my mouth. They said somebody will. I didn't understand what he's saying so they they paid a Mazda the original references but just came off as really week. Yeah it was really weak like I was watching mate. I think they just give it a film Grad and just give him a script and be like me. Just write something. Yeah and again. If there's any sort of rush hour talk give me crystal. GimMe Jackie Chan Right. Even though as the films went on it also looked like someone through some thirty MC Chris Taco go and listen to our bad is absurd but Chris Tucker can still like third down. And let's let's trickle over to the for the third movie. It took three movies for Kristaq. It's concrete fighting. Yeah having that I. I'm sure okay. I was intentional. I'm sure he's saying it at every movie completely like cut it out. I think I feel like this was the weakest of the three low of the two. Yeah I agree. And the one puff moment was when. I think the one that I really enjoyed Roseland door both senior the club. Oh yes over in no very hot of so body like 'cause you knew you knew Chris Tucker was going to sing. That's that's no surprise to anybody but once Jackie Chan was on that verses pedaled swing hall law this this will stop me from punching strangers in the street Wow it's just everything. The build up was the everything was there. And what a franchise. We had do me baby Performed by Princeton. Chris Tucker is also credited on the soundtrack for the third movie If you watch the outtakes for the second film there's actually a reference to it in the third movie When they're on the plane and there's inklings learning to the fact that Cada is Jewish When you watch the outtakes at the end of the second film Chris Tucker is really struggling to say Kafelnikov Fish. I didn't even know if I'm saying you're right but it completely go cut out of the movie because he just couldn't say it and we were watching the third movie and he actually said it and that was quite a payoff off Pale. Considering how annoyed the producer was Oh yes and the funny thing was in that particular outtake in the second movie. Jackie was like all it was something else who Crisanto was supposed to say three words in Chinese couldn't even do it so it's probably Mandarin Cantonese. And he couldn't do it either. Yeah so it's interesting because obviously you would think that Jackie Chan like needs help But Chris Tucker native he'd Z. Career by his allies which it all but he. I think they would. They would just the perfect combination right because it's very it's very easy to try and overtake each other. When you're in a sort of jouer dynamic yeah I know because he doesn't know his place and I have to put him back to wearing needs to go. Good Luck you fucking sub shave all but all. I'm so glad and also in some sort of way. I'm glad I had never watched this. And this was the first time I've actually watched it because it came at such a time that we needed this Y- really did. I felt lifted. Like you know whatever's going on right now it's quite crazy. There's so many things out there that it could watch soccer. Just bring you your whole mood down. Russia is in the ILJAZ. Lift you up make you forget how crop this everything is. Oh yeah totally. I'm also apparently. Jackie Chan speaks fluent French..

"I thought he was fantastic to have seen him in a little bit. Oh you didn't see bad. GRANDPA have blu-ray That's force you haven't seen it but you have the blue grow. You have to save somebody else for buying doing God's work there yourself in the fire and it's a very subdued like we said look at the gangster lifestyle it takes its time it knows. It has a large window to tell the story and uses that to its advantage And and by the end like you said it's just a story about a man who shows us lifestyle over his family and how that leaves an empty all right now. I'll go to my number four. It's actually movie that we both really enjoyed penguin when highway right yeah. He saw penguin much of the Penguin. Mr Poppers Penguins Hat la this movie directed by here. Our Hero Yasu ISHITA. It's An anime film like I said I always like to kind of search for films like this. Every year. We get an anime. That's fantastic that I think should be nominated for best pitcher. I mean a couple years ago when your name. Am came out and it wasn't even nominated for best animated movie that would be on my all time for the for the decade. Definitely but this movie in particular it follows a fourth grader. Peter who is kind of like a boy genius. He's like Dexter Jimmy Neutron and it sends a good message to kids. You know. He's very optimistic. He's very ambitious over science and and something happens in his hometown where these penguins and up popping they pop up Mr Bob Pursuance. No not like that. But they're mysteriously popping up. He lives nowhere near the ocean. So he uses is a combination of magic and science and also friendship. He's got his buddies to solve this mystery. And it's very clever. It's very engaging and like I said the script is great. So many quotable lines Yeah overall this film that makes it into my top ten because movies like this the Pixar movies the Miyazaki. I don't know there's that magic that you can create an a children's Children's film. There's a box that you can't go outside of so you have to find a way to be clever and especially with anime films. They do such a great job of of relating to adults where the whole family can go out and watch them but yeah penguin highway number four on my list. We'll sometimes those stories are part like you don't need the have anything outside of that box. Just a nice wholesome movie that you can enjoy there. There are multiple different types of film and that have many different stories. So you can excel at this story and be more than just labeled as a child's movie right and the number three on my list. I think some people I can make the same argument with this. People will hear this and think it's a little ridiculous but it's John Chapter Three Para Bellum and I think with movies. There is kind of a stigma with action. Comic Book Horror John Wick knows what it is. And it's a franchise that has gotten better with every movie. I mean one was such a surprise when we saw this Keanu Reeves. The title was a little stupid John Wick and then it came out. And he's fucking massacring the entire New York state and John with three like I said It knows what he wants to be and it does it so well. KIANA raises their different types of movie stars. There's the Leo who's known for the drama's kind of classic Hollywood. Then there's the action star like the Rock Arnold Tom Cruise. And then there's that that eastern foreign star the Bruce Lee's the Jackie Chan's jet Li's Keanu reeves is kind of becoming like our version version of that he's synonymous with the character John Wick. He's becoming a legend as these movies. Coming Out And also I mean the acting in this is great McShane as Winston Holly Halle Berry the new introduction to the John World that sequence the fighting sequences the choreography in this movie. It just kept getting better. The knife fight was fucking the knife. Fight the fight with Autobahn Bovin. Yes the dogs. The motorcycles the horses when he knew how to hit the horse of that they would kick kick the bad guys that was like the law also to the way that they've created this little underground steriods world this elegant assassin society where there is a structure their rules there's currency Everyone what has a a distinct niche job. It's I love this universe. Remember lead up Seth Film. Everyone wanted to know like what's the deal with the horse. How did you get the horse or is it going with the horse? It's on the horse and he shoots the Ninja area. I mean he's on a horse. He's got guns he's got swords it's Kiana is such. I mean he's become an icon this year right. This has been the year of of Kiana two thousand nineteen but he has such a passion for this type of film. No such an appreciation for it and for this franchise to be in his hands at this late stage in his career. I just feel so happy for him. No I think you said it best. I mean it is an action film but it is one of the best of the general. Yes so I mean you know a lot of Maybe old school cinna files might be like. You can't just for what it is. You can't put John Wick above. Let's say A married Aria marriage story or something like that. It's just I mean. Would you rather the best action movie or the Tenth Best Drama. It shouldn't shouldn't matter what Johner it is. It's just you do. You know what you're doing and you excel at it kind of like mission. Impossible s year fallout. It's one of the best movies of all time because there's an action movie and it's a a fifth chapter in a franchise doesn't mean or sex right and there was yeah no six. There was a lot of momentum a lot of people. It's so funny because the it's those group of people that just just look down on these movies because you look at the Ron Tomato scores for morals well. Most critics love these movies. But they're never gonNA find their way on those those best of lists those year end lists but there's also this idea that every movie has to be a poem I think that's what Mark Ellis said comedian worked for collider. He's like not every movie V. has to be a poem sometimes. I just WanNa know what's going on in like cut like parasite you know it's A. It's a very fun narrative you can follow it. You're surprised by it. It's clever you enjoy the writing but this from a from a technical standpoint the fight choreography the way that it's paste the action to me. It's it's near flawless. And that's why finds itself at number three and the number knbr to will be on my list little woman movie that we already talked about. It was also on your list and yet I didn't read the book going into this on my had heard of the book. But you know it's been done so many times with like how good could it be now kind of contrarian but it's very good Apparently it's a story with a lot of potential and Greg. She makes movies. That are the she's telling real stories but they're like dreams. Lady Bird was like a dream that I felt that I've lived with my family and this is well. I mean the lead character. Sherzer Ronin lead character trying to follow her dreams trying to break through that glass ceiling feeling and just the parallels of Greta. GERWIG not being nominated for best director delivering one of the most critically acclaimed best movies of the year but yeah the performances are fantastic I think I forgot to mention Saul Saul Goodman. Yeah Meryl Streep just hiding you know. They've got gems just hiding throughout Chris. Cooper like you said the scene with the piano I broke down. And it's just such a simple elegant subtle scene and the emotions that she rips out of you with her films. She's incredible. It really was just a great experience like sitting arching this movie A little bit of everything comedy. Heart warming heartbreaking and at the end of the day is kind of inspiring. Yes Oh yeah definitely shall to at this guy. He's off to some start to his career Goodman. I Dunno people talk about them enough now if they don't think filter hates a film twitter yeah. You're sleeping all challenges is nonstop talk about Timothy Shalah all the time. It's cool to see because he's like I Dunno I see him as the new deal not that he looks the same or that. He's a similar actor. But but it's that heartthrob where you could tell. This guy does have that talent. This guy is going to be a leading man and he's another one just picking great supporting roles. I don't have to be believed there. Can I can play the supporting in Greta. GERWIG movie and it's also it just overall it's been such a great year for up and coming directors so many directors are on their second or third film and they're delivering a great movies that that will stand the test the time that are being critically acclaimed and also the old guys too. I mean Tarantino Scorsese a lot of the veterans of comeback. Now it's kind of like a little contrast contrasts air where you have like Tarantino and Scorsese you know studios on come to them. They go to like they have an idea back. You right so It's interesting to see the new who generation of directors that are will eventually after their second third or fourth film where people realize. Okay they can make anything and they're going to get it back and they're gonNA get anyone they want in their film ELM and they're just GONNA be able to create their vision so it's Kinda Nice seen like a bunch of directors start and I think we got a lot on this year Greta Gerwig Taika with td Just to name a couple apple safeties. Hager's astor I'm looking at our. Listen the ages. Some of the ages for these directors people in their thirties. It's really encouraging all right yeah. I guess we're up to number one right. Yeah you number one for me. The White House Robert eggers fantastic film. This is I hope one of the Yeah I put it number one. Yeah see number one. I talk a lot about theater experience. This was just mesmerized by this film. I remember UH leading up to this movie had black and white one two one aspect ratio and kind of like. What are they trying to do here? It's just a gimmick or whatever but that next that blend with the story they're telling is it's mesmerizing. Yeah it was perfect it it kind of I remember I was watching the film and the fall monologue about the lobster and he kinda disappeared and blended with the the black background and the screen and it just made is like haunting experience for me. I just saw like nick. Parts and Features of his face on the screen and it was like it was coming out. It was wild. I think that was a brilliant choice by cinematographer and Eggers to incorporate. Great that into this film because it fits it so well and just the story itself the fallen patents in just two men slowly going insane while knee as audience member slowly going insane watching movie. Take place We talked about the Irishman. How it was the quickest three and a half hours of my life? This I felt like I was in theater for days. But that's usually. That's not a good thing with this. I was like I wanted to be there for a week bright. I just didn't want it to end by the time I was over. I'm like what what what years it I just took. You took you a while to be like kind of snap out of it and it was to who are the best performance of the year got no love. I think only the Cinematography Oscar NAM which deserves. But I think at the very least dafoe served a nomination when he's getting buried alive and he's delivering his lines fall asleep in his mouth. Who does that? He's at a couple of good deer stew man at eternity skate last year. The Florida project the year before. It kind of seemed like he was due to get a win right. He's getting nominated in these films that no one really knows Now the lighthouse. I think might not have gotten too much commercial success but I feel like this could have been the one for in the breakthrough. Yeah I I think we all thought it was good to be default for this movie. This movie may not get the best pitcher NAM may not get writing and other acting knobs but default definitely and yet his both both of them Pattinson keeps Pete keeps putting people on notice that are doubting him badges began filming. But he's another one he's been in the indy circuit. He's been making the rounds building up his resume. And I think at times coming Netflix. Soon so check that out or check it out and he's been phenomenal. These and an eggers talked about it. Numerous is but just again I mean he is becoming one of the biggest names. In Har along with Ari and it's I can't wait it to see what he does. Next watchmen and usually with hard. I never thought I would say that. But and it's not even like horror it has elements to it but I I think good horror. What draws me to these two filmmakers movies is that it blends so many different elements of other John Rouse John Ross? John Ras into their films. You don't like the garage remake for the eighteenth time no but nobody likes clever. Be something different. Like some uniqueness to it like the first grudge and not just make you know I mean slasher slashers even horror sub genre of trash. Well they don't even come out anymore so there was. I mean there's some great ones there are great but yeah that's a drawn. Most of them are here. See when wes Anderson said he wanted to make a horror movie I thought slasher. That'd be the best way to go for him but he would do a great job of blending other genres who slash. That's what you need to do with the owner and Teddy. Will Roy Moore a lot of time. It's like four million dollars. Let's make two hundred million yes people will not even that it's like five million will make fifty million but that's still will call it a yeah pocket that money and just make happy death.

They get Charles Woodson. Charles Woodson goes Charles Woodson you notice school. What a baller? If you win a Heisman intros, and then I come to work the next day and joins got the whole script written up. But he sold the British off Ferguson. That's what it was the British off Ferguson while he was playing Madden. Yeah. And he said, Keegan who's this guy British off? Please offensive lineman for the Justice. Oh sweetheart, we've just this is tip of the iceberg. Do you? Remember, some of the names that you guys decided not to use. No, we used every single name. He wrote and the only one I in the first incarnation. The only one I added was Dan Smith. Which officially means Jordan's blacker than me. We're both mixed, but he's the black one. And I'm the white one Dan Smith BYU that was in Oman to my dad. My dad grew up in Utah with the other twelve. Dan smith. After predator. What what's next after predator in January? Season two of friends from college. Not sure exactly when it's going to be in the new year, and I'm really excited about that. That's been a that's been another kind of transition piece for me where this show's very dark but comedic at the same time. So we're kind of trying to do the shifts where I'm the boats going in a different direction a little more more dramatic for you bother. Or were you concerned that I think I episode you we know that you're having this affair, so you have this lovely wife. And so we immediately don't like exactly, I know. It's really it was a real bold thing. And I thought let's give it let's just give it a world, especially Kobe's smoulders of all the people. I know that he why why what world is are you cheating on Kobe smoulders in and and so I tried, but you like to be is it fun to be disliked. It it is because that's one surefire way of knowing you're doing your job. Well, if I'm walking down the streets of Tribeca people go oh. Mike can hold out hope for that. Emmy, a second EMMY. Yeah. It's it's it's a barometer. Like now, I wouldn't wanna be on a soap opera because for some reason people who enjoy soap operas, I feel like they can't there's no distinction from the fiction. Real. Like you. I don't know. Why? What's that voice? You're doing. Black. I started the sentence. And then I became Hispanic. It was like, you know, I don't like you, man. I don't like you. Two different people. I I'm glad that you notice the great actors now, you you really you. Yeah. Director guy see director. Vision. Dan going. I don't know guys. Let's put a fifty on this one and Jimmy one. Apple apple. Here's a question for your your kung FU guy, right? Yeah. Love love movies, gently Bruce Lee. In the octagon, okay. In the octagon Bruce Lee wins because because just by the sheer form of what Jeep Cundo is so g Cundo which is just kind of an amalgam of all other martial arts. So all all Bruce Lee would ever do is react to anything gently did now, given I don't know what expertise jet Lee has maybe wing Chun. I don't know someone's doing research, but but the fact that Bruce Lee's whole philosophy was being like water and taking whatever anybody's going to give you I always wonder if two people like that who are experts real high level experts if they would just be standing. Strike each other. Morning match of all time. Okay. But if if a Bruce Lee faced Kanye Reeves in the matrix. Oh, wait a minute. Okay. Is Bruce Lee in the matrix. Also jacked into a pod is is a human who who's interfacing is your program. He's a program now he's a program then he loses because Neo can bend all all of the. Okay, bend, the reality of the matrix. So then he can't win. A Bruce Lee might have been so good that he would have gotten out of the program. He would have sounded. Who went to Berkeley. I think now that's that's that's good. He could have it's possible that he could go. Oh, I don't I choose to not be a program. And then he renders you human somehow what about Jackie Chan jet Li. As much as it pains me to say this in the octagon, I'm taking jet Li. I I here's why does that pain you because I love Jackie Chan is a showman. And as a performer, I just here's the thing. I don't actually know because of the way that the way that they they give the energy give off on camera. Jackie's the clown. He's always on. He's always on defense. Jetties always the bad ass hero. So I'm assuming he's a better martial artist. But I don't know only bring out Jackie Chan oh God. Why he can't understand what I'm saying? Can I just say this? The thing about Jackie Chan Jackie Chan first of all great comedic timing huge fan of like the old silent masters. Harold Lloyd Chaplin Buster Keaton. He used to take his England when he was learning English. He would learn it. He would learn it like it try to dissipate his accent from another Chinese person who had learned English seems counterproductive. That's all I wanted to say, okay.

"And I'm like, you're all for it. So like I'm I'm a heterosexual bail, but I was like, I know exactly what this guy is. I know exactly what director John too is doing because he's so exactly what I felt we've been emasculated for so long and pop culture in in the biggest example to me is Romeo must die with gently and the late Eliya. If you've got a movie in the title character's Romeo who's gently, and you don't even have to of girl like. Like. To me, and that's what I've grown up with. And here's the other thing like there's also a difference between Asian American representation and straight up Asian representation because the people who've grown up in America, they haven't had the same type of experiences say that people like Jackie Chan jet Li, and it's cool that I can see like a face of similar to mine on the big screen, but they're they're doing things in which I can't relate like martial arts and so forth. I having a movie in which people are just doing regular things like that means a lot. You know, here's make a reference to movie. Everybody remembers is with American pie. Remember the the John show character who was the milk guide, you know? Yeah, that was read to see. Telling jokes like this three dimensional aspect. And I think it's been a long time coming for that. And I do think this movie could be a game changer. And the other thing is like, listen, I'm an ESPN ESPN IRS. I know like the audience we're talking to you, but it's one of those things like, okay, this is a rom com. Well, it's like coming to America if we went to the moon to, that's what happens in this movie and pretty mild, it's not sweetened saccharin. Right. Exactly exactly. I, I think there's a lot of relatable elements to it put alternately. It's not so much for me, the movie itself. It's what this movie can represent, and it's not to say it's representing every Asian every Asian St. in this movie is that that's what it's like, what what it means is it's opening the doors for more opportunities to have more diverse stories told. And I think you know, I've lived in Alabama. I've lived in Wyoming where I was the only Asian dude around and they asked people would ask me questions and you would think that they were ignorant questions, but I knew they were. They actually were coming from a very non malicious place. They were legitimate interested questions about my culture in which they just didn't know they've never met anybody Asian. And that's why we get the stereotypes of all. Every Asian dude is great at math and knows kung FU while it's because that's how they've been represented in a lot of times. If you don't have an actual person to talk to, we go off of these stereotypes. Right? Absolutely. I, I completely agree with you. It's it's opening up a ton of. I mean, if you call the Britain, foreign secretary made an awkward debut in China when he was trying to curry favor talking about, whereas wife was from, but actually said the wrong Asian country. So living, if you marry, I guess, Asian woman, you still can't keep it straight. So we got a lot of work to do in this movie, hopefully is going to help change some of that, and I just loved your stories of people want to read them on the undefeated or watch the videos on the defeated, talking about the movie, looking forward to seeing it, and thanks for coming on with me carry. Thanks so much. Appreciate it. Keep grocery of yours..

So you can say shots out to you. Tommy Tommy listening, Michael, you'll talk about the greatest martial artists in movies, no aging action stars, who who's your favorite aging actions? Disagree question. Like we're talking during your fifty s to kick an ass. Yeah, believably. Yeah, Chuck Norris was up there. Not only list Michael. He did not have Chuck Norris on the list, really did not loud. Beating guys with guns. Let's see. Jackie Chan number three. Jet Li nine. Eleven? Okay. Yeah, like jet. Let's see. Oh, Steven. Seagal got to be the one. No, not on the list. No, you're not even on the list. You got fat tours. I believe that anymore. That's only tail walking around and. Ole sense as like in the sixties. It's still beat up guys twenty because the black belt and red belt martial arts, Jackie Chan jet Li, they're old men. Yeah, Daniel, Craig enough is he's old enough, but I didn't put him in a less because really JAMES BOND was like the only Royal rose w. Seven. That's pretty much. Yeah. All gun anyway.

Completely forgot about the damn. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. I purposely didn't put him on. Put him on the muscles from Brussels, what's wrong with you?

"My goodness is it's amazing to me is like the same same plot over and over again my mind. And so yeah, taken man, it's it's. It is very influential though. When we saw Liam Niessen give that speech. We were like holy shit. Yeah, Oskar Schindler is now in action here and it blew our mind. It really did. It was like it's not particularly good film, you know, just whatever movie but really satisfying to see a serious actor. Go ape shit, something tap into something in that we really liked. And then he went onto, of course, being action star for the next six years or something. He walked away finally, because he's like embassies actor. I don't know what I'm doing. A lot of movies I see taken it in this one is no different, I think. Yeah, not. So that's a really good one. And the rock doesn't really have a specific taken that does. -i on skyscraper, can't get guys great for kind of his taken quite a lot of ways like you just mentioned the daughter thing and all that and layer Oles the portion of the movie. It's all Gay, you. you kill you right on that? Yes. A European man has his daughter. He goes and tries to take her back. It's taken. I think it's taken. It's taken it same way that Noah shining in a boat. I think that this is taken in in a skyscraper, right? There you go. That's good. I like if. What else you got. So I have one last puzzle piece here, and it is it's basically genre of movie really just like country of movie. It's Japanese action movies in general. I thought specifically about Jackie, Jackie Chan, jet Li movies with all the acrobatics and the the flipping around and flip it in and out of buildings. And that, of course, with the with the whole. The, you know, the setting and everything like that as well. And also the peel for multiple markets which is a little there There should. should. Baseball. No, no, I it's kind of had a bit of a that kind of feel to it. You know, those kind of movies, especially all the scenes outside of the building. Yeah, yeah. There was kind of. Actively see that this is somehow connects. I didn't wanna mention this because I didn't know how really connected, but let's just go crazy and say, I thought a little bit of a rush hour vibe. I don't know why though. That's why wasn't going to say anything because I have no reason to back them up down. There was something about it though that felt like I think it was the outside scenes of like the Hong Kong police working with Neve Campbell and stuff because I kind of feel like some of the rush hour films kind of drew from some old Hong Kong films that gets more and more fun way. Sure. Took the American buddy action film when it mixed it with those action based films. And so it kind of gave me so maybe it was subliminal. And when you brought it up, maybe there's something tapping in into that west meets east idea. This is interesting. I don't. And maybe I'm forgetting about a major movie here, but are there any Japanese disaster movies other than you know. Godzilla. Yeah. Are there any like just general natural disaster movies? You know? Because I probably yeah, there's probably, but I can't think of any. But I mean in a lot of ways, I feel like your disaster movie puzzle piece and and kind of Japanese movies Japanese films. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, they're all kind of merges. That's kind of really where I mean that Russia are funny really won't. So this was a little bit funnier. There'd be a stronger connection. Yeah, but there's something about, I think like the east meets west fighting style kind of silly over the top or something that was reminiscent to me about the rush hour movies. I don't know why that is. I, I totally see. I see the little there. Yeah, I definitely see where you're going with that particular, but there's this vibe. I don't know what it is. Yeah, I actually, I hate Brett Radin or the passion. He's horrible. Not even for all. I hate him for all his. The movies before he was awful. There's always been off. Then he Did. did. I was like, I knew it. Bryan singer waiting for your fucking Dan buddy. You're a horrible human being. But anyway. Yeah, never liked..
