"Because that came out last year or whatever or maybe it's not maybe it's not the right year for the next four months, but at least every other year they could just say, well, you know, like every even numbered year is just when we do another big Call of Duty. And if they came off that remorseless every year track, it could potentially free up one of their studios right now like a trial like a Raven order a sledgehammer to fulfill the government and say, you know what? You're off the Call of Duty fucking conveyor belt. Bring me the next big thing. What's me that? What's the thing that you guys really want to make? Rather than rather than the most interesting creative conversation you have every year being, what is the next is the next Call of Duty going to be World War II again or future again? Like just fucking come up with give me something new. We want to grow the franchise library, the portfolio, bring us something new. I would love to see the developers would love to have that kind of liberation to fulfill to say you are you and how have license to come up with the next big original mega franchise that could potentially take on take over from Call of Duty on the road or whatever. I just sit beside it. So it's just not activism not just Call of Duty incorporated anymore. I think that's potentially the biggest potential here. Yeah, I mean, to go along those lines because I think now they're at what 30 studios I think something like that this frees them up to do new things. Take risks, get new ideas out there instead of just the same thing. Oh, where'd he go? He muted himself. He got so excited. No, but like you said, Gary, this frees up treyarch or sledgehammer infinity ward to go do the next thing. Right. People forget high moon studios did a Transformers game, which was awesome. Dude, if you want to go further to the mechanism, remember, they made that Jason Bourne game that was had a great idea. It didn't come together the way it should, but they fucking can make cool shit. Yeah, and I guarantee you every single one of these developers has like a massive draw full of things that they desperately want to do but they can't because they're destiny now is what we just make every every other third fucking Call of Duty game, you know? I think there's a lot of people at sledgehammer and Trey are an infinity war to Paris's point that are really excited about what this could mean for them that finally they might get liberated. Yeah, exactly. And again, when you get brought into this family, right? You're not just giving a new name on the paycheck. You have access to all these resources. And I think that's what's the most important thing when you talk about this and opening the door to. Cool, we want to make this small game. It won't take nearly as long as the other stuff. Well, you can do that and then we'll outsource this to not even outsource. It just put us in the other Xbox family studios that can go do this and have it happen. Yeah. I think the biggest one in terms of short term, I mean, not super short term, but like, you know, either next year or I think more likely as parents because you'd have to make a decision if you're going to develop for multiple formats before this deal with clothes, which I don't think legally, they could do. So maybe the 2024 game would be the first one that comes in exclusively under Xbox game pass. And again, if I was if I was a Sony game, I think the people that are like, I have a feeling like the most kind of oh my God, feelings today are PlayStation gamers who really, really like Call of Duty. That's the most threatened group right now, I think. Here's the thing Gary, all right, I wanna kick it over to ads, tell you about Patreon dot com slash kind of funny games. You could go there and get the show ad free yet. I'll get to that in a second. But I also see this little punk over here in the chat, blessing junior throwing out things. I love this line of thinking. Blessings in the chat once he's saying giving up that Call of Duty money to work on singularity. Blessing get your ass in here while we go to this ad, all right?.

"Okay, moving on to one of my favorite numbers, legitimately on the Andy Graham, which is 6s. And we call them the loyalists, you call them the hawkeye. The hawkeye. Yeah. The hyper vigilant one. You know, I mean, when I think of when I think of 6s, I'd be curious to get your perspective on this and I think of Jason Bourne. You know, some people would say Jason Bourne is an a, I don't, by the way, I don't like to watch movies and like tie all Friends characters or Seinfeld characters and stuff. But I think of Jason Bourne as a 6th like Jason Bourne just sees the room. He walks in, you know, and he sees the exits. He knows what's going on. He sees the danger. He walks outside, like he's memorized 17 licensed plates around him, you know? And so, I mean, 6s see everything. And I think unhealthy 6s narcissistic 6s are so so self protective and really that's kind of that's what's going on underneath any kind of narcissistic person, right? There's an element of self protection that there's sort of like always identifying what could go wrong or what you're doing wrong. I remember working in an organization where this wasn't a leader of an organization. This was an accountant in the organization who is a 6. And when you walked by her desk, inevitably, you felt like you've done something like you just made a comment about her husband or kids or something. You felt like you'd done something wrong. She'd look you, look at you, the hawkeye with the evil eye. You know, she sort of look at you out of the corner of her eye. Inevitably is a four. I feel like I did do something wrong. I probably needed to apologize, right? But you know, it was probably something like I forgot to report my McDonald's receipt or something that week, you know, but, but you know, their rule keepers rule followers and rule keepers. And you feel when you're around them, you can sort of feel like you've done something wrong. Like you're always on your tiptoes, you know, tiptoeing around them. Like I don't want to get on their radar because you'll notice me and they'll recognize that I've really screwed up this time. And so this might not be see this is not a grandiose narcissist necessarily. This might be another one of those more vulnerable narcissists that operate in the shadows, a little bit more behind the scenes, and yet why am I tiptoeing around her? How come she or how come he has so much power in my life? You know, it's interesting in the world of intelligence in the intelligence services. They talk about training for situational awareness. Yeah. And situational awareness is like when you walk into a restaurant, the first thing you do is especially if you're a bodyguard. You're a secret serviceman. You walk in, you know where the exits are. You look at every single person in the restaurant and you do an assessment. You know, what am I going to do if someone comes from the right or from the left, they can tell, I mean, you know, they're so deeply trained, which is almost a 6 is self trained in situational awareness. And I think again, I want to remind people what we're describing here is not a 6 in their normal operating pattern and let's say the average to healthy space. This is how when we're talking about 6s who are at the very least in the style of the narcissist, right?.

The Bourne Identity (2002)
"Hey everybody welcome to another prestige podcasts. Where we perhaps are stretching the definition of prestige I think so. I think this is a prestigious action film anyway. The bourne identity. This is a two thousand two movie directed by doug liman who you might recognize director of swingers. Mrs smith jumper edge of tomorrow american-made. He's the son of a bitch. Made us watch american made. We got all hyped up tom. Cruise in and mister bourne identity in its turns out that was very aggressively average flick. But but he's he's made a couple of good action movies as you can see here. After this paul greengrass over and helmed the rest of the borne trilogy is based on a screenplay written by tony gilroy who you might recognize as the screenwriter of rogue. One devil's advocate. Literally every jason bourne film also wrote and directed michael clayton and william blake. Herron who. I don't even know why his credit for this like only got one other movie credits he's credit created as the co writer. So i guess he did stuff here. He came into some rewrites. Because a studio like lots of this is a. I had no idea. This is such a troubled film making process. They're much butting heads. We'll we'll get to that. I'm sure is based on the bourne identity by one robert ludlum. If you're a. Tom clancy fan. You know. absolute thought robert ludlum is if you're a kid growing up in eighties. Ninety nineties like books The airport bookstores were stuffed full of his political thrillers. Back for their stuff. Full john grisham or after adding it. Yeah it's like. It's like john grisham. Tom clancy and and Ludlum all going for that hyper. Masculine market stars matt damon of course as jason bourne Frank potenza bra who you might recognize from run. Lola run is awesome. Best thing about season to the bridge. Also clio and sneaky little star guest starring role here. Chris cooper brian cox who you'll recognize as the bad political heavy from every political thriller. We've ever seen giant assholes. Good job at it. Julia stiles clive owen. Art talked by clive. Owen and walton goggin. Yeah back before. I knew who he was and he was like in his late. Twenties early thirties still had a fairly full head of hair though. It was in recognizable retreat. Just pops out the do one of the most textbook gap dossier exposition scenes. That you've ever

"They missed a chance. I think with the south at the end to be more interesting isn't i would say but But we do get the addition of tommy lee jones and for those keeping track. He's now older than he was in men in black three and you can tell because just now more rings on his face. The mighty oak that is commonly jones. He's still standing but he was fine. I kind of wish you had something. Like scotland comeback are like a recognizable character to tie this to the other movies. That's of to is that there's not a lot of There's not a lot of continuity between the previous films and this one and that. Yeah matt damon's back but everyone else kinda written out of it so it would have been nice to have a character still standing from those previous films. Are we to assume that. Dewey that tommy lee jones character was the director of the cia. Because i don't. I don't think we ever see the director of the c. i. a. in the movies. It's just. I think no of us in as the deputy and then pam landy is something else but i don't i mean are we to assume that he was always the c. i. a. director and now he's just more hands on or i was. I was sort of confused by that. I mean i know. We're talking about his acting. But wasn't scott glen the ah the cia director scott. Yeah that's what i was thinking. I'm just having a quick check while you guys toolkit time they just call them ezra kramer so but that's not. That's not helpful. I i definitely. I enjoyed his performance. But it does start to feel real A little boom ary out of touch with no offense to boomers. My parents are boomers but he does like. You said it doesn't really help that. They're trying to sell you on this whole social media angle when to tommy lee jones is the person in charge of it. Tommy lee probably has a jitterbug phone. Yes with like the giant numbers the giant number. I can't confirm that. Ezra kramer was the director of the cia. Okay okay okay. Yeah the i. I guess i need to go back and watch that. Because he's not super involved at all tomato and i haven't watched identity and supremacy in quite a while. So yeah. I just a cynical part of me goes i'll bitchy. They just wanted. Tommy lee jones. Because he's a bigger name you know. Obviously tommy lee jones get second billing in this movie. They want that on a poster..

"But yes at least you go gratuitous Because you had the in legacy well. You had like fully buff. Jeremy renner racine thrill up in her mouth. Aaron has left the podcast. Everyone i am. I have to go actually brings the things we didn't like about the film. i okay. I've got a few things. I suppose out to everyone else. I'm gonna say cam for. Oh okay I would say in terms of this whole deep dream tech subplot. It really gets dull. And i mean this movie's approach to kind of computers in hacking is pretty goofy right off the top. You have nicky. Parsons getting busted opening a cia file. That is actually called black operations. Thank you at two hundred. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't name their. Cia black ops. You also have her passing on a secret. Usb that it says encrypted in bold font on the actual usb drive and also. it's i got mad at the julian. Assange character whatever. His name is The christian to sell the hacker guy Who's barely in the movie. And i was like. Why did we even need him. Kind of ghalem a little bit. He does a little house too long. He plugs in a random. Usb drive to his own he's supposed to be the super-hacker to his own computer without like doing a bowel. Wear scan or like being suspicious of it at all Because obviously you know homegirl at the cia was like yeah encrypted with malware wise to the incident first place. If you just wouldn't know it's being used they wouldn't have any idea bro. You don't have a vpn. like i'm going to say the walk. I hide my porn better in the cia. Hides its black. Have you never thought of hidden folders.

"Well it what you gas the as an side cam wasn't weird to see oldest. Go down in the convention hall between man. Yeah yeah like yeah look reference you know. I met camera star trek convention in las vegas No way yeah. So i've been in holes just like that. Many times sat next to can many times and seeing a gunshots firing off. It feels very large to hire. That's low time on that strip in seeing things get plowed through. It's like it cart real. If those quite real i was actually paying very close attention to the geography of the strip when they were doing the chase and it got a little muddy at one point where i was like. I don't think that's right and i noticed. They were approaching parasol quite a bit. Yeah they were grandpa's. They were mostly down to south into the strip geographic. Yeah i have never been to vegas. And then consequently have never been to most of the places in these movies besides like washington d. c. So i would have had no idea. I was like it all looks right to me. According to palm stars one of the things. I enjoyed about this movie though it kind of ties into what we're talking about was that the asset was older and had more of a personal score in the matter. Because i think we were. you know. Definitely running into repetition by the time we got to the last movie where it's like okay activate the latest whatever type of super soldier. We have and they were all kinds of these young guys who just went through action scenes. I kind of liked it. This one is introduced as like. I dunno like like a serial killer like keeping bathtub while he's watching tv and then a lot of the action is driven by the fact that he was captured because of bornes actions. You know the first film and so he was tortured in syria. And so he has nitsa casella. He didn't so he was great. And i thought that you know these types of roles can often feel like kind of like just feel in someone who's really physically capable. They'll deliver. But i felt like vincent cassel was definitely raising the bar just given i mean the guy is a very illustrious filmography and i had to i-it'd dig pretty hard and i realized he doesn't have a name he's just the asset I know they don't always give them names. I can't remember if clive owen had one. But i know there was the the guy in the tanveer scene and i it was just. It was interesting to me that he's such a huge part of the film but he doesn't..

"That's what i was going to do anyway runs away. That was such a cool moment. He like i disappeared behind flames. Cool guys don't look at explosions. Who is don't i wondered watching the sequence though and it's incredibly well staged like very ambitious on. Paul greengrass is part. And i like how he brings that real world feel to his action but watching it. You know surpremacy revolutionized action in movies back in two thousand and four or five or whatever it was it came out and i wonder if you jump forward. Eleven years if putting this on a big screen. People just didn't care as much like it was like moved on to things like the action you'd see in the movies like the raid. And what have you and the influence that has on. Hollywood and i wonder if like this just didn't while people because this would be the type of action sequence. You open this movie in. Like two thousand six or seven eight will be like you need to see this on a big screen like serious scale going on here and i don't recall anyone really talking about this and it was really well. Done like the whole chase scenes in like the chaotic moments. Were really well done. But maybe it's like they're like oh we're we've moved on now onto the next big thing so they just didn't give a shit. I think one of the things that had against it was it was a night. Yeah i tend to find the juice chased from supremacy with friends jerry. Answer he That said the daylight you can see. Everything is very visceral chase reliance. It's mine on man. it's just. It's two people competing as whereas this is very chaotic. Very hectic you don't know what's going on Which can be quite thrilling. And it looks great but also you caught ceelo. Yeah it was. I the second watched through. I watched it again by myself last night. 'cause i was like i need to make sure i'm paying attention to me. I'm doing i. I told you i was gonna And i found myself constantly like rewinding me like okay. How did we get from here to here. I don't lose dark. i couldn't see. It was kind of like the last season of game of thrones even go there a maybe that's the reason for all the molotov cocktails because he was like we need more natural light. Paul greengrass did a movie handful of years before this called the green zone with matt damon and that had a lot of night action and i found it indecipherable. Seeing that movie in theaters. And i feel like this was definitely a step up from that but i do think getting that clear view of what you're seeing people i think they tend to prefer that Any of the big highlights from the final guys. Yeah let's talk about the las vegas chase at the end which i think we can raise some questions about it. Seems more superhuman than any of the action we've seen in the bourne films..

"Then simply. We talked about before. Where tony gilroy. And paul greengrass didn't get along at all greengrass wrote on The first three films as well as wrote and directed legacy and you know Supremacy in ultimatum projects were very messy. And yet you wonder if what made them really strong was that they emerged from sort of this clash of egos. Yes one. this one seems like everyone kind of got along and it was like yep. We're all on the same page. It's to quote matt damon. You could understand very clearly. Why ever did. Whenever did there was. There was no constructive criticism in the writer's room. It was just kinda like that. Sounds good. i mean it's it's paul greengrass writing it with his longtime editor suddenly defy. We need to cause a fight as examples of double ads throughout history who've been going their own way and tried to do things never quite the same you look at a algorithm by lennon mccartney great solar careers but they weren't the bills. I'm not saying paul greengrass. And tony gilroy. All the beatles okay is old is love scott. All they need is yoga also broke them up and just connection to beat was cool. You know my name that's true. Oh i think you're getting into the conspiracy here. Scott who dead. He's been red pilled. Okay well i'd like to do is talk about some of the highlights of the film before we tear anymore and this plenty of room for that. Don't worry but i were shout out to the ring not opening five after that. The opening scene the big debate battles dot in athens the riots and the chase asks i actually had to kind of sit down and figure out what the riots were about because i was like i felt like it was sort of marrying like the financial crisis but i never quite got a good answer on it but apparently there was some sort of thing that happened the summer that they were filming it but i don't think it was actually supposed to be referenced in the film but this is a little interesting dan kind of hitting home. Some of the moments in that light ryan. We both had to kind of posit and be like man. This is really real to real for us because pauling we live in the us and that we don't get political but you know the imagery was very reminiscent of the last year or so living in the southeastern us right. Though it was based on what was going. Ill ingredients the time. there were lots of anti austerity. Riots was around the time so it was interesting to see that. Because i mean i lived in england. It's quite far away from greece but it was always on the news. Yeah i have a question. Were as many molotov cocktails in real life. The were in this movie Probably not i actually more. But there's there's more rubber bullets in real life. Yeah 'cause this chasing it's raining. Molotov cocktails greengrass was like we need more. Molotov cocktails like the opening of rent. The musical really did throwing shit and some things on fire. I really like the part where he is. Reborn as walking down the sidewalk next to the train guys about to throw one and he grabs it out of his hand and throws it behind him instead to like throw the people off and then the guy just kind of looks and goes well..

"Nurture. It's so true you not every time he he does that that. resented resides character. Just wants to be like okay boomer. Yeah so i mean we can talk more about all that sorta stuff but in terms of this movie. It feels like too weird halves. Where it's this big conspiracy story. That totally takes over the movie. Certain point and jason bourne the previous films that featured in it was answering a question we cared about like who was this man. What is his background. That's what those first three films explored right. This one feels like it's introducing questions. We don't really care that much about like okay. His father's name is on a document. Okay cool and now we're just going to spend a movie exploring. His father was and who killed his father. And it's like okay. Like i don't like dislike the movie for wanting to delve into aspects of warns background. But he doesn't feel like it's that much of a porn movie most of the time so it's kind of a muddle thing in that i. I enjoyed the technique of it again. Damon's committed. he's doing his job really well. You know we'll talk about the actors but there's not a lot of bad performances in this movie. It's just like it almost feels like it was a little misconceived in the genesis in terms of what we want to do in this movie and i don't know if they ever really crack you needed a hook to bring jason back. I don't think it had it hook. It had the beginnings of a hook but they had this other story about this social media platform. The isn't really tied into it. And so you just get sort of meandering plot of actions into action in which look great. But you don't k- jason just goes back to obscurity again at the end. Yeah and i think as as a. I feel like i get annoyed when movies try to do that where it's like. It's very obvious. The writing team was not a really together on what movie they wanted to make it. Like you know lease there's two plots you know. There's a lot about jason born and his daddy issues and then there's a lot about the social media company There's no through line. That takes me all the way to the end of the movie. And like i feel like they were trying for some character development but it didn't quite get there. There's even a third plot about the shiva candor character in what she wants to do. God you the mac and cheese running through in terms of initiating situation to her benefit. Herbert's is tommy lee jones. Like there's a lot going on in this movie and it feels like jason board is get swallowed up in it yeah. He doesn't even know what the movie's about his name though he does. He's not confused on that it. Is this film missing. Turney.

"Could see it. I think it. I feel like he's in the same category as like clio in karl urban for me. For some reason you supposed to give a distinct much like vincent cassel's Located like a generic wipe dude. The some things have that that look it also shows me though that right from day one they wanted a older asset versus like the younger ones eight had in previous films. Which makes sense. Because i mean you know. It's ten years after. Ultimatum came out. It makes sense that the asset would be. You wouldn't want like some young twenty something dude chasing fifty-year-old matt damon around. I don't know what worth they both have their shirts off. I mean i'll allow it allow it. What if it's bob hoskins. I will double it back from the grave again. Check out our who framed roger rabbit episode very fun episode fun so the box office for that year. This movie made one hundred and sixty two million domestic two hundred and fifty three international for a total of four fifteen worldwide in comparison Had done four forty four so this was a downgrade but on the flip side legacy had done two hundred seventy six supremacy to ninety-one and internet and identity fourteen. So this one was success. Toy just didn't quite beat. What ultimatum in ultimatum and a lot more fanfare obviously built around it. After i i do feel like it might have suffered a little bit from the We're gonna tell almost the same story i mean. We can get into that later but i. I was getting a lot of flashbacks all the other born. I think there's also the trouble is being the legacy of born legacy yongbyon you. Jeremy renner not many people also questioned. But some do i definitely do not this mother and maybe maybe people felt tricked by legacy like i'm sure people went to legacy and walked going like. Oh that wasn't a jason born at all. So i don't wanna get too much about legacy because that's not the movie that we're talking about. But i if anyone like me had read the book the bourne legacy which essentially is him going back and being david webb and being a college professor and then getting called back into the field i would have been extremely disappointed to find out that i mean i was actually. That's why i didn't see it to find out that it was not about. That was not based on the book at all right. So yeah so jason. Born landed at number nineteen for the year. The worldwide box office between warcraft and ice age collision course..

"Actually seems a lot smoother than previous born films where they were really nightmare productions and a lot of movies being pieced together in the editing room. This one seems like it was a pretty clear cut Project i think you know greengrass game and work well together. Christopher rouse is obviously in there in terms of damons effort on the film. We'll talk about the fight scene that opens the film but matt damon had to go through three hour workouts every day for ten weeks before the shooting the fill it yeah and the fight scene was filmed i because of this that makes a lot of sense they were like. Oh god we gotta keep him as as possible. They also realized early on that. If the story took the direction they were taking it matt damon would not be talking very much and that actually really excited matt damon. He was really enthused about making a film that was much more based on a physical performance than anything based dialogue so we can comment on whether that worked for us but that was something that actually did very much appeal to matt damon. I feel like he wants to be more. Like tommy lee jones in a sense of i want to be filmed but talk as little as possible and just get the paycheck. I was waiting for him. I just wanted to hear. Tommy lee jones scream at someone. Like that's all i go to tommy lee jones movies for us to hear him yelled and he didn't yell once no he was more like rumbled down. Beat this time yeah. It was interesting. I really did not do a lot of research on it before watching it. I did all my research. After the fact just so i could sorta be surprised But he he came on. Tommy lee jones came onscreen and really freaked. She was like. I don't know any of the character names. That's any spare argue through. It sept jason bourne. You know his name. When it came to the casting. Militia backhander was a real for them. This was her first major film. After winning the oscar for the danish girl for supporting actress that had been on a hot streak. She done x. In man from uncle. Obviously the danish girl so this was very much kind of continuing that heat stroke she had. Interestingly viggo mortensen was in talks to play the asset who'd be hunting born yet at some point. Yeah at some point that just kind of fell out. And we got vincent cassel and we'll talk about him later. I thought that was really interesting vigo mortenson not an actor i would have thought they would have approached for that role. That is a really. Yeah i would not of picked. I would not have chosen him. I could sort of see it. Only because the other assets in the other movies have been like they've all. I mean with the exclusion of dash but the the clive owen character. In the karl urban character legat it makes sense because he is sort of in that category of like very famous actors that maybe are as popular in like american movie while i mean lord of the rings but.

"Think they were though. I think the return of matt damon to the character was something people did want. I just don't think maybe must have been a marketing thing because you know we'll talk about the box office in a bit but bad movies. Make lots of money all the time. And i mean who doesn't love julia stiles come on. Who there you go. yeah. Julia stiles coming back. Yeah i mean. I think it was just like what they were. Marketing didn't excite people that much.

You know his name the most dangerous fulmer operative of the cia is drawn out of hiding to uncover hidden troops about his past. Is that the. Is that all of the board every born.

"I know. Yeah when one is because There is an actual book called the bourne legacy which i think you referenced in the episode The guy stood about it but it has nothing to do with that movie. And i read that book and i really liked it and so when i saw the trailer anti also just have a real dislike for jeremy renner. I do not like him. I don't like him as an actor. I don't like him as a person. I think you could cut him out of the entire. Mcu and it would not suffer. Like i just. I've publicly stating this. I do not. I try not to make strong statements. But i dislike him. So you're saying you won't be watching the spinoff tv shows what you're saying. I'd probably not however after listening to your episode about Legacy and rewatching the trailer. I was like it might be worth a watch. Just to Just i mean it has a good cast. It does seem. I mean our finney re is like it's yeah and joan allen is in it which i was super sad that she wasn't in this film because she's one of my favorite characters but Anyway i may go back and watch it. But i guess i did say through thick and thin. I guess that was the thin. And i was not there for but again i just really don't i go further into it but i won't. She's got like an avid hatred. Like it's the funniest. If anyone has questions as to why feel free to hit all defend myself dot podcast on why you hate. Jeremy renner fair enough. What about you.

I had a we had a zoom sash and we did like amazon watch party and i did record it. So there's maybe some clips that come out at some point but We had to stop the movie and be like okay to recap He didn't even stop it in the middle. Like you stopped it because you know the movies always start with those famous flashbacks. That are like the you know. The batmans parents getting robbed of the board movies. Essentially will you commit to this program. And she was like. I don't understand what's happening. And i was like okay. But i love. Shirtless matt damon. So i was game. It was a good movie.

Roger rabbit which crap Everyone should go check it out But we've had you had you in mind to come and do a film for a while now so take us take us back your connection to jason bowen. Well i guess. I guess i'll start I think i saw the bourne identity. a few years after came out and I think supremacy was already out And i just remember. Because i wasn't that was like the movie that got me into action movies like i. There weren't a lot of big action movies that i had seen at that point and that was such a it was a different kind of action movie or spy movie and so i just i remember just being struck by like how intense it was and how almost not believable but the action was more believable. He's a very different kind of spy. Hero he's not you know. I think you've talked about this on your episodes of the other films but He is not the the big gadget guy. I'm going to grab a pen and and do some damage And then when ultimatum came out. I remember my parents. Got it for me for my birthday on. Dvd back when we consumed media Hard copies And i i just remember like be like man. It's so i mean you know looking back. I've watched ultimatum before we watching a before watching this one Just to kind of catch myself up. Because i hadn't seen in a long time but I just remember being just the the action style in the camera style. Especially in the green grass films It just is so different. And unlike anything i'd ever seen before And i just remember how obsessed i was with. I actually read A couple of the books as well But not not the robert ludlum books because they are some long dusty tomes but i i read the Some of the novels that his friend wrote after his after robert ludlum passed away and they're actually the earlier ones are pretty good.

News of the World Movie review
"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative. But it's safe to say that's not what's most compelling about news of the world at least right now michael and i were discussing some of the titles for possible review on the show you lean toward news of the world saying this it would feed naturally into talking about how we get our news and what the news has been lately having now seen it. I'm pretty sure. I know what you're getting at but i'd love to have you explain and i'm eager to hear if you think this topicality is to the movies credit or to its detriment. Well you know when you talk about any movie or anything that's worth talking about in the culture yet. You have to respond to the times. You're living in doesn't mean that everything gets bent toward particular historical malay. Were in right now. I mean it's it's it's just sort of stunning. How distracting everything in the world in our country least is is crowding out so much of our head space for anything else and it's I think i think what's going on in news of the world at least As greengrass co wrote and directed it is you. Have you have a film. that's speaking i think. Directly although not too bluntly a to certain strains in the american spirit and the american sort of rugged individualism western ethos have a guy like Tom hanks character. Kid who's a civil war veteran The film takes place right around. The same time is john. Ford's the searchers it's It's texas in eighteen seventy. The searches was two years earlier. And you have a very similar plot line right you have essentially if you want to boil it down to the utter simplicity. Have you have an anglo older white male who wants to you. Know who ends up Rescuing and saving i guess with quotes around it A young girl from the clutches or the life. she's known a living amongst the native american tribes comanche searchers. And the kiawah here in this story
Milestone for COVID-19 Vaccine
"Want to get right to today's major covid nineteen development the uk's approval of a vaccine the first country to take that step clearing the way for vaccinations there soon. As in the us when a program starts here in the uk elderly residents of nursing homes and frontline healthcare workers will be the first to get the shots developed by pfizer and the german company biontech pfizer says eight hundred thousand doses are doing the uk in the coming days. The country has a population of sixty six million british prime minister boris johnson who survived his own serious case of covid. Nineteen spoke in the house of commons. Today i would like to pay tribute to thank all those who made this possible. It is the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get our economy moving again. Jason bourne is npr's global health and development correspondent so jason. You've been scanning the globe. Your thoughts on this milestone today absolutely. It's a big deal. This is the moment. We've all been waiting for right when vaccine starts to actually be available to the general public Supplies are gonna be limited in the beginning and we need to underscore that. This is a pfizer vaccine that we're talking about it's just one of the vaccines but it really is remarkable. How quickly they've managed to get this from scratch all the way to the approval stage and it's not just visor you've got these other ones that are in the works to but normally would take fifteen to twenty years to do this a year ago. We hadn't even heard of. Sarah sylvie two and here. They've done this in a matter of months. It's really it's hard under state. How important remarkable. This is using the real scientific name for covid nineteen. But what's your biggest concern as the uk starts to raw the vaccine as other countries watch. Yeah i mean there's gonna be issues. One is just the logistics. As i mentioned. This is the pfizer vaccine. So this is the one takes incredibly low temperature for storage at it's minus seventy centigrade needs at at certain points in time when it's when it's being stored and transported so logistically this is not going to be an easy task to get the vaccine all the different places it needs to get to get people vaccinated but it's doable but there could be some logistical challenges. Second is going to be concerned. That we're going from vaccinating. Tens of thousands of people during these trials to now. You're gonna start giving it to millions of people and that after some of these people get the shots. Some of them are going to have some medical issue. Maybe they were just about to have a heart attack it. That is going to happen when you start giving this to such a large pool of people in questions are gonna come up about. Was that an adverse reaction to to this vaccine might have nothing to do with the vaccine but these are the types of issues on that could lead some resistance stumbling blocks some questions about the vaccine in the months ahead and just look globally for us for a second which countries have managed to control infection rates. Well what lessons can we learn. Some of the european countries have done quite well. You look at france and spain over the last month. They've brought their second waves down significantly. Ireland also seems to have gotten fully passed. Its second peak. The numbers continue to remain really quite low in africa Places like chile had a big surge in june and then they brought it down to relatively low numbers and they have managed to avoid a second wave entirely. Like we've seen in some other places so it's really different in different parts of the world but there are definitely examples out there of places that have managed to do it successfully and keep their numbers either. Bring them down after a second peak or keep them low right and what about the people who have been to be kind stuttering Here in the us. We're seeing huge numbers of cases. Every day where are the other troublespots yet the us still continues to dominate this pandemic globally with one out of every four cases being in the us but after the us then at the moment it's india brazil. Italy and russia in that order in eight is interesting to sort of look at this You know eighty percent of both the cases and the deaths are in either the americas or in europe. It's really been these two regions that have borne the brunt of this. I'm an even this week. documents from the world health organization. Said he's very concerned about mexico and brazil and the rising numbers there so there are definitely places that are that are not doing so well we just have a few seconds here but i think i know the answer this question. Yes the vaccine is coming. It's coming faster to the uk but the virus still winning at this point isn't it unfortunately. Is this pandemic continues to grow. Even as we see it ebb and flow and certain places. The numbers continue to to come more and more each week and they come faster and faster so yes. The news about the vaccine is very important to actually slow the of the virus that we're seeing globally

"Now. I think before me in camp get into of me. I Know David I know you had a personal attachment to this film. So is that something you'd like to share with us? Yeah I mean I've written quite a lot at these from James Bowman point of view, but particularly re watching the bond supremacy this this morning. Today I realized kind of. Why I have such an affinity for spy characters and I'm sure being gay is the is not the only. Way To spy movies. I'm sure anyone who fails and this is surely everyone but anyone who fails more or less like an outsider from a social grape I think he's he's always going be drawn to spy stories. So Jason Bourne I think he's the ultimate example of that even arguably more than James Bond because. Well, the film is called the Bourne identity. The films are explicitly about a search for identity trying to find out who he actually is, and you know he does actually find the end of the bone spurs. His name is David which was added guide if. If, all the names in the world more the most common names of all time..

"You're Jason Bourne Fans. We have a new Jason Bourne novel written by Brian Freeman, who weigh adore his boards. Last act from about a month and 1/2 ago for your great book, Thief, River Falls and you let it be known. At the Robert Ludlum Estate picked you to write the next book and the Jason Bourne Series. This is amazing book The Boring Evolution Thanks for being with US bran. Well, well, I hope you got to hear all that. It was a really good way. Just said you're great. You're great. Hey, guys, I'll get it back on for right. Talk about the new news in August. But all right, So we just found out that Biden picked Kamala Harris as his VP candidates. So that was just announced, like couple like, literally literally. Human. It's code you minutes ago. So that's yes. That's not going to be taken over and all of that. And you know what we're reading. Teo. Get Brain Freeman on We both law in case he read this because he always red Born books, and I had just watched two born movies with my dad over the fourth of July. Matt Damon plays Jason Bourne. Yeah, such good movies. This born evolution need their 15th book in the Syria but I want this to be the next movie this story. And do you have me back now? Yes, I I I think it was obviously Treadstone cutting us off. There you go. Right? Obviously, Brian. I mean, I don't know how you so seamlessly slipped into the mind of Jason Bourne. But, man, did you write a great thriller? The lead. Some family must be so happy with the story. You know, I I was so thrilled when the book was done the folks that Putnam sent it on to the Ludlum estate and they came back and said. We don't want to change a single word. And so I was so thrilled and honored with that. That that that's high praise. Okay? I just started last things have been a little busy and I'm halfway through this. This is such a page Turner. You don't want to put it down, and I don't think I've want red one born work since the Bourne identity since the very beginning. So what number is this? In the born Siri's? You know, I think this is 15. Robert Ludlum wrote three born novels. The very 1st 1 was the Bourne Identity, and that was 40 years ago equally, but I read it when I was a teenager. And and then Eric Van Lustbader took over and wrote, I believe It was 11 mohr born novels, but but now, here we are in 2020 40 years after the Bourne identity and born is back, and he's right in the right in the modern era. Did you read like, How did you put yourself for piecing together? Because now we're Jason Bourne. You know. This is there's a lot of things that have happened. They kind of get referenced. Although it has you don't have to have read the book. You don't have to. You can just pick any. Yes, stand alone. But how many books did you read? As sort of to get for this or it ever did at at all? Yeah, Absolutely. What? You know, there've been so many operations of born. I mean, obviously have the Loveland books of unloosed better books than you've got. You know all the Matt Damon movies. And I may be one of the few people who remembers that originally, Jason Bourne was not Matt Damon. He was actually Richard Chamberlain and an ABC mini series in 1988 with Jaclyn Smith as Marie Sing jocks. So we've seen a lot of different Jason borns over the years, and you know as I as I started thinking about what I wanted to do. In this reboot of the series. I wanted to go back and really be true to the original vision of the character that you find in the Bourne identity. And what Ludlum you made with that character that has turned into such an iconic, enduring hero in thriller fiction, so I wanted a completely new story. I wanted to be true to the character, so I went back. I read all of the Ludlum born, but there were a couple of the van Lew's better books. I re watched all the movies, and I kind of just let that all percolate back there on then I just kind of started on my own way and I wanted to. I wanted the born of this book to feel as if he could have stepped out of the pages of the Bourne identity and just put him in a modern setting and used a You've done that because I have made my husband Julia's brother read it because he was big born. That's this. Is his type of volcano throwing 100% and he was just like He said. If you I would. It's so seamless. He's like it's like Robert Red Ludlum reach from the great grave to tell the story. It's so pitch perfect. Well, that's great that that's exactly what I love to hear. I mean, I was a Robert Ludlum fan. My whole life. I read all of his books. So this is this is a huge, huge honor for me, and that that's the highest praise I can get from readers is to make them feel like this is a Robert Ludlum book. This is that is so cool. All right, so now do they do you get like a three book deal? When you do something like this? They did a two book deal with the estate for newborn books. And I'm actually working on the 2nd 1 right now. I took a break from that. So answer the phone, saying we very much so if you're just joining us Words local after Brian Freeman, who we've read you love his bugs. Just Google. Um, and the new book is Robert Lemons. The born evolution by Brian Freeman. I have a question and it might sound so dumb, but you, said Robert Ludwig. Lemon loved Ludlum on. Lee wrote the 1st 3 born books, But yet he was alive until 90 name right and he write the other ones. You know, they did not actually start doing Mohr born books. I think until the until the movie's started taking off, and I think that you know the movies became so popular that they realized that they really needed Tio go back and you re ignite. The book series. And by that point Ah Mr Ludlum had passed away. And so that was when Eric took over. Do you? Do they think I mean, have you heard anything like this would be a good story The way you told it. It's just a fresh good story. I could see it being a movie, and I don't know where Matt Damon, like If he's like, if this is a possibility or not, Well, you know, I keep waiting for the phone to ring anyone. Heaven be mad on the other end thing. L Brian, let's talk Er, But it hasn't happened yet. But you know, I'm still watching the phone because I'm interested in whoever they cast as miss. Surely, Of course you are now that Okay, I'm ready. Brian, you know, Laurie, That's of course, but that's a character that is securing. This is good. Well, how are you doing? Otherwise, we'll doing great. Things are really really busy. I I've got another book already coming out. Next month. My new Jonathan Stride novel set in Duluth.

Leo Laporte - The Tech Guy On TikTok And Privacy
"This morning, what did I do? I downloaded installed TIKTOK. And then spent a wasted our. But a very enjoyable our scrolling through two games. I've used tiktok before I've been posted stuff on Tiktok. I think our social media team. Hey Jerry Masako, I think our social media team even uses Tiktok from time to time. But I you know maybe he's a good time now is download it put on the phone in case it gets band. Talk. About confused yeah I thought I'd I'd send all my information to China. Have it, China enjoy it. Why not I'm already sent to Google and facebook might as well give China look. Look see my boring life. Drive to the studio drive home drive to the studio drive home. That's it. Don't go anywhere. Don't do anything. If that excites you president she hadn't. have at it. It's actually really fun. It's probably the most engaging fun creative social site out there. I think it's awesome. Funny stuff. it just well done just really well done, and of course, the president wants to shut it down he sending very mixed signals so. It's really unclear first of all whether he could I guess he could. Could issue an executive order and then then. We'll see in court. because. There's no precedent. For that. Even Chinese companies have First Amendment Rights. TIKTOK? Scared They they've promised now they do all the things that make the White House ten thousand US jobs. We have a US CEO and finally last week they started negotiating with Microsoft to by the American part of it. Then the president said, now I don't want American company to buy it I just WanNa, shut it down. said that late Friday. So. Microsoft's said I hoped. Make up your mind. Meanwhile TIKTOK is filling up with memes saying, heck. No, we won't go that kind of thing. I think it's quite enjoyable and completely harmless. Completely harmless. You know. Any APP. You put on your phone, you should know this. You should know this your phone is the perfect spied vice. It already is and I don't care. You say, Oh, I'm used an apple I don't care apple android. It's a perfect spy device. What's the first thing I? Ask you do you ever see Jason Bourne movie. Spy. Movies ever see them. They always seem to end a begin Jason's driving around. He's cool. I'm cool. Jason. Bourne he's driving around and then some woman gets in trouble and screaming, help me help me and he says hop in the car. What's the first thing he does? Before drives, the woman to safety he takes her phony breaks it in half throws it out the window that doesn't good by the way just a tip. Under nothing. Just pick it up put it back together. But importantly, it's not the Bragan half that matters although it's quite satisfying especially in the old days those phones with hinges man they broke nice. Boom. Show off your muscles met Damon I'm strong I can break a phone and half throw it out the window. That's the most important thing because once it's out the window, it's no longer a homing device, a microphone and a camera in the car. That's what you're carrying around. You're carrying a beautiful little computer. That's always connected to the Internet. Beaming beginning broadcasting your location? Always, not just GPS mind you. The Bluetooth in there, there's something called Beacons Bluetooth beacons, apple put them in their first and android. So we gotta have those two and the whole idea. I. Don't know if anybody's. I don't think anybody's using whole ideas you go into a gap. You Walk into the gap store and the beacon on your iphone says Hey Leo's here he wears ex ex l point them in the right direction and little thing pops up that says, Hey, welcome to the gap fifty percent off if you turn left now. That was the idea beginning some museums use them. You know you're standing in front of the Mona Lisa. Yes. It's small, very small, surprisingly small. That's how was painted. No, it's not a fake. Don't touch it. That kind of thing. So. That's doing that Blit Bluetooth. Here's a fun. Here's a fun thing to do. Turn on Your Bluetooth Pairing I've done this. Get on the bicycle and ride down the street. By the end of the street you have in your Bluetooth, a list of hundreds of devices. Joe's speakers. Sally's refrigerator. Tommy's watch. Jerry's iphone all of those listed because they're sitting there going hey hey, over here, all the time. Then, there's the GPS Oh, and then it's got a microphone actually most of the modern funds have more than one. They have many microphones so they can be really really accurate. been. Really, hear every word you're saying when you try to get Syria to do something she goes I don't know what you're talking about. But boy, she heard you she heard you loud and clear because he got Mike Refunds in that thing. And then there's a camera. My case not just one, there's one, two, three, four. Or cameras not to mention depth sensing accelerometers a compass. This phone is designed to be and it's incredibly useful because of it the perfect homing device that's why that's why Jason Bourne throws it out the window. So we're carrying that around now, who has access to all that great information. Everybody. When you put an APP on your phone, what's the first thing says? It says it has a few things. Can I send you notifications? That's mostly it right. Can I use location if it's a map why not? So you say, yes. Yes. Yes. Now, that APP is just sitting there. It doesn't ask a lot of the things. It does affect. It's funny because. Apple's about to release in a month or two the next version of their iphone operating system I o West Fourteen. And the whole world up in arms. Because Iowa's fourteen adds new things. New Privacy protections like? Here's one the AD industry doesn't like too much. Hey. Right when you install the APP hey, is it okay if I use the apple advertiser ide- to identify you. Know. You could turn it off, but it's buried way deep in the settings now is asking you in the advertising industry says, that's GONNA kill us. Nobody's GonNa say yes to that. We're out of business. Okay. Apple says, yes see that's what you get. We tried we apple by the way. Don't take apples like the the angel here because they wanted to do an ad business, they had a thing called i. adds it would do exactly. That's that's why they had the. Apple advertiser I id. It just flopped. So Apple said, oh. No. What are we going to do? Oh, I. Know Let's pretend we care about your privacy because we can't attract any. You know we can't sell it anymore. So We'll make lemon lemonade out of Lemon and where the privacy company.

One of the first games was a demo disc of swords called PlayStation worlds giving you a short games like VR Muench where the player liens and slides down a highway of eighty other vehicles, scavengers oughta see that's where players explore a Sifi location using vehicles, and defeat aliens using the scavenger beam in pulse cannons. There was also shin descent players, there descend to the depths of the ocean and observe different marine, life danger ball was pretty fun. It was a sports game in which use your head to hit a ball. And then the London, heist a first person shooter in which the player controls a mobster who is tasked with stealing a diamond and is really one of the standout experiences. It showed that AAA quality game. Were possible on the PlayStation, VR and left us wanting so much more than it's twenty minutes of gameplay gave us today. I'm happy to say, Sony has released the spiritual successor to the London, heist. And it's now my all time favorite VR game in blood and truth. You play or rather star in the best action movie, I have ever experienced as British commando Ryan marks who comes home, after his father's funeral to find out a rival organization is trying to muscle the rest of your family out of the family business. It's never said what that business is. But you get the idea pretty quickly that it's not exactly legal. Now you can play this with the standard DS for controller. But really, you wanna use the moves giving you the ability to manually reload your gun throw grenades and even climb in. Crawl during this six hour adventure. It really brings you that much closer to actually being in the game. You grab ammo off your chest to reload your weapons, and you can even flick. The double barrel shotgun and revolver closed after you put in the ammo. If you remember the awesome firefight on the highway, from the London, heist, then you'll be happy to know that they start this game with that level of excitement with an equally heart pounding car-chase in just the first few minutes of the game. If you have ever wanted to feel like you were part of a JAMES BOND, Jason Bourne, or even die hard movie, than this is what you've been waiting for blood and truth, has a great storyline full of some of the best character animation. I have ever seen. Even if it was getting really close to the uncanny valley, in places the whole world feels full of life, and they vary the action, so things never actually. Get boring for you and you're always looking forward to what kind of new experience is around the corner from gunfights in many locations to jumping off a crane high above the city to picking locks hacking security, panels, climbing the side of a building in crawling through air ducts. It was so thrilling and well, put together that I didn't even want care that this is a sensually a rail shooter. There is little to no free movement. And I didn't mind one bit. I see games as interactive movies, one of the only things that I hate about movies, his the good ones have to end the avengers. Endgame was three hours long. And I would've loved it to stretch for four region five, that's the great thing about a good story. You don't want it to end and the great thing about games. A good story could go on for hours more, or even tens of hours or hundreds of hours, depending. On the game. That's how it feels to play blood and truth. It's a great amazing story that you live through, and you don't want it to end. You have to see what's around the next quarter in your heart pounds like a kid for the first time in a candy store for the whole ride. You start the game talking to a special agent who has caught you and is convincing you to cooperate. The first action sequences a flashback to Ryan marks last mission and access a first level tutorial to teach you how to move shoot and reload. You'll also get your first look at your bag complete with a screwdriver wire snips lock pick and extra fuse, you're supposed to take out the baddies and extract, a colleague this leads into a great car chase gunfight seeing that lasts a full three and a half minutes and shows off some great explosive slow moments you fly way in a helicopter to get to the intro and find out. Your father has died of a heart attack. Then you're heading back to London. The next scene sees you in an airplane, and then being picked up at the airport by your brother, all the characters are very expressive. And as the story, unfolds, you can look around the room to see all the NPC's reacting differently to what's going on to your mom, giving, you concerned looks to your sister, rolling arise in grinning, and the bad guy, showing his disdain for you and your family.
