A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)
"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.
Chadwick Boseman's Family Defends Anthony Hopkins After Oscars Backlash
"We can touch on the oscars which just happened this past weekend. i like. i said i didn't watch them. Did you guys watch him. No one watched the yes. Nobody rocks create. Nobody watches award shows anymore. Yeah or outright and reasons but one of the big ones that like nobody has cable anymore down. That's a good point actually remit if you already have like a plan like table yeah. I'm so i watched it. I watched all the way up until like the last half hour. I still like the big. The wards stop watching. Yes so i guess for for some background so this one viewership. I guess for the first time in a long time it was under ten million viewers where i think last year's was over twenty million so pre big drop off and then another twist they did towards the end was they did best picture before best actor and i guess best best actress. Yes before black before both the lead acting categories. Yes no mad. Land won best picture but then the big disappointment at the end was so walking. Phoenix came out to give the best actor award. And i think a lot of people were hoping it was gonna be chadwick boseman but it ended up being anthony hopkins and he was not there. He was asleep. Apparently and then joaquin phoenix walked off stage and that was the end of the show. And so i think a lot of people were not only pissed that chadwick boseman did not get which his family has already said has come out and said we don't feel snubbed but a lot of people were upset about that and also it ended on such a low note.
Anthony Hopkins Won His Second Best Actor Academy Award on Sunday for His Performance in "the Father
"Came out but joaquin phoenix the winner of best actor last year to present. The best actor were now. We have been talking for months about the expectation chadwick. Boseman was going to win this award posthumously and then what happened. Anthony hopkins won best actor for the father anthony hopkins who did not attend the oscars and did not attend any of the satellite spaces so this show ended basically on a freeze frame of a photo of anthony
Kyra Sedgwick: Empty Nest, Barn Full Of Goats
"Our first. Two guests are writers for late. Night with seth meyers and you may know them from other places. Ben warheit played an awful wall street. Guy in the joaquin. Phoenix movie joker. Jeff rate is known for making hilarious online video sketches where he plays all the characters ben. Jeff hello go Jeff you make all these amazing videos on tiktok and instagram i. I don't know how many you've made over the years. I don't know if you keep track i. I've made a lot of videos and a lot of bad videos. Only post the good stuff. Only really. there's there is a a pile a pile of all. That's the real talent. I think knowing what not to post the talent. That's a good point Better that way before you entered obviously the writing for late nine. You're you're creating tons of content still in videos that you were in school. You're majored in neuroscience. Yeah yeah that's yeah. I i did like doing the research and but i found research to be really slow ultimately in a lab. And you're like asking one very very specific question that take several years to get a possible. Answer yeah in addition to having a background in science you also act. Including what am i ve favorite films because i found it. So chilling joker. Yeah favorite experience. Why was it your favorite. I felt like working on that. I was just learning a lot very very quickly. Like for instance. I wasn't supposed to be doing the stunt where i got killed spoiler alert. There was supposed to be a stunt double who got shot and falls and like it is falling on the concrete and crawling and blah. 'cause that's technically stunt.

Very right in saying that the Greek heroes where the original superheroes. In part because of the nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. DC entertainment and Warner. Brothers has launched his character study film on one of the most iconic characters as a standalone Phil. Joaquin Phoenix is Arthur, Fleck who becomes the joker comments on the script. That has very smart. Really unique. It was like nothing I'd ever read before and I thought that there were. Still elements from the DC Canada Batman. There are still references to that world. And yet it also felt like it was something that was brand new, and stood on its own, was irreverent and funny and twisted It was A. Brand Grip. Exploring Arthur's view of reality. You never know what he's saying Israel. Did. Is I think about it same? This may not be real. Say whatever he saying. It's very real to him now whether it is objectively real, it's. Questionable, but for him. Real so I thought I had to approach sincerely every time whatever the scene was. But it's really left up to you to the audience to decide what you think Israel or isn't. There's more with Joaquin. Phoenix on bite, so stay tuned. I am C. Three Po human citations. This is better name more. Hi, I'm Angel Kobe and I take one of it and I. This is really behind I.

Confidence and and your reverence and may not. Feel so fortunate to have worked with him on this movie. really gave me the confidence to. Just be willing to discover something in the moment and I think that spontaneity was probably really important for this character just gives it conscious kinetic energy. He says he expects many different reactions to joke. What unlike above movie is I, think that. There are several different reactions that people can have, and they're all valid, and there's something really exciting about being in a movie that requires the audience to participate with the character in a different way I mean usually characters. Motivations are so clearly defined that we're. We're telling the audience precisely what to feel, and when and what I like about this movie is. It's really up to interpretation. Look for joker opening on October fourth. Comments or questions or welcome at Sci, fi.

Parasite's best picture triumph could begin a new era for the Oscars
"For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards a foreign language film has won the Oscar for Best Picture Paris only to south Korean black comedy also won Best Director for bone June hope in the main acting categories there were no real surprises with winds hawking Phoenix and Renee Zellweger but just how significant is parasites achievement just before we came on air I spoke to Tom brook in Hollywood it is seen as a pivotal moment perhaps in the academy's history it speaks to the growing power of international cinema and we have because of the economy has made in the last few years to diverse supply its membership to bring in more international film professionals and this could well be reflected in the results that we got tonight which was parasite winning the Best Picture Best Director best into international feature and best original screenplay yeah it was it was a dominant performance at perhaps a bit of a surprise but in terms of the the main acting Casseres I suppose the win as well the people we expect yes with the actors I mean I I should just back up for moments to say what was great about parasites it was announced that made for exciting viewing because with the acting categories it was very predictable Joaquin Phoenix one for his performance in the film joka Renee Zellweger one the playing Judy Garland and Judy Brad Pitt one for his role in once upon a time in Hollywood his supporting role and Laura Dern one for her supporting role in marriage story and does the fact that in a foreign language film won Best Picture it is that perhaps goes some way to to meet the complaints of those who said it wasn't a very diverse set of nominations perhaps but I I I think that our site was really well light to the piece of cinema it was very adventurous still making so I think it was voted full on those merits in a way and people really light phones you info here in Los Angeles as he was on the awards circuit in the run up to the office he has a very winning personality and so do members of his costs and I think that had a powerful effect on people as well so it may well let's waste some complaints about the lack of enterprise in diversity with the other nominees and briefly that was a bit of politics in in some of the acceptance speeches yes read it made a reference to the fact that John Bolton wasn't allowed to testify last week in the Senate impeachment hearings and Joaquin Phoenix made an impassioned political speech about human beings not exploiting one and all that indigenous people and the universe our correspondent Tom Burke took me from the red carpet outside the award ceremony in Los

Oscars 2020: who will have the biggest night?
"Are the Oscars are this weekend who are you rooting for anybody on your list I like once upon a time in Hollywood I just thought that was a great film I love the cast awesome stuff several nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
'Parasite' winning best picture would make movies richer
"So the nine best picture nominees are of Ford. Vive Ferrari affordably. Ferrari is Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the story of Ford trying to build a car to beat Ferrari in the lemond race The Irishman when is the Martin Scorsese Film. which is on Netflix? That you might have heard. It's three hours long. Gioja Rabbit is TYCO I. T's story about a World War Two to that is the one with the where he plays a an imaginary Hitler. If you've heard a joker of course Joaquin Phoenix as the comic book character. Sort of little women which is little women you know Little Women Louisa May alcott and book adapted by Greta. GERWIG marriage story which is Noah Baumbach. Big divorce film with Adam driver and also Scarlett Johansson nineteen seventeen which is about two young men in World War One cent. On a very dangerous mission started by Sam Mendez once upon a time in Hollywood Hollywood. Is Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's story about the Hollywood of the very late nineteen sixties and parasite which is Bongino Jin. Ho's Really Fascinating story about two families who come together in a very unexpected way Glenn Gimme a quick will win. Should win on best picture. I'd be happiest with parasite movie that just gets better and better. The more you think about it I'd be okay with little women or once upon a time like movies I'd be a little disappointed if it was Ford versus Ferrari for reasons you can hear more about in the full episode and if it is the joker I'll scream into a pillow Because I kinda hated that movie the oddsmakers have nineteen seventeen winning which is surprising to me. Because I like that movie but the best picture of the year really. It's Oscars sensitive from war movie and it's kind of a traditional Hollywood movie in some ways but then at the same time. It has the kind of showy element of having the you know. Made to look like one shot. I I will just go next and say I would pick parasite and you know. I'm going to stick with will win parasite because the last time. I had a tingling feeling that it was going to being upset. It was moonlight backed off at the last minute. So did the telecom. I robbed myself of an opportunity to look smarter than I am. So I'm going to say will win. Parasites should win parasite. I'm okay with nineteen seventeen. I think there is some lovely filmmaking there. I admire fire the accomplishment of it Bob. What do you think will win and should win? I think one thousand nine hundred will win because it's just everything seems to be driving that way it didn't start out that way. What's interesting sting is at the front runners? Initially were supposed to be Once upon a time in Hollywood and the two from from net flicks Irish marriage. I'm sorry Mayor Story and those have kind of disappeared from the conversation. I think it's safe to say none of those have a real strong shot anymore. I would love to see parasite win. Yeah Stephen Anything. I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I would be thrilled of parasite one I would be thrilled if a little women one. I love that movie so so much. I went on record in our resolutions and predictions show. I predicted addicted. That once upon a time in Hollywood was going to win best picture. It seemed like everything was coming together for The Oscars love movies about the magic of movie. Making it is is a movie about old Hollywood. You know who else is old Hollywood. Everyone who votes for the and so I felt so much like and also Quentin Tarantino. Not No he is an Oscars favourite but he typically get's nudged over two screenplay and then doesn't win best picture best director so I really felt like he had an enormous amount of momentum going going in but I agree that nine hundred seventeen seems to have kind of swooped in and picked it up and I. I really liked that movie a lot. I admire that movie a lot. I would be perfectly content content and satisfied to have it win best picture but this time next year it will take me thirty to forty five seconds to remember what won best picture unless it's parasite unless it's it's parasites will be talking about it for decades. Well I think I wrote about this a little bit if you subscribe to our newsletter which is at NPR dot org slash pop culture newsletter. I wrote about this last week but I do think there's a chance that will be parasite partly because the opening up of the best picture category. which originally was talked about as a way to bring? In kind of popular blockbusters that are also of quality. Got A lot of talk about the dark knight and things like that but it's actually done is bring in more smaller films and foreign right language films so eventually it's GonNa Happen. That one of them is GonNa win. Might as well be this one. I think it might be this year. I think people just like that movie. Yeah and the fact that the US preferential voting for this cat this particular story. COMP look it's way too complicated to get into here but basically what it means is if people liked parasite recite for example enough to what it number one number two or number three. It's got a better than average chance or second. Choices have a have a better than average less polarizing films. Do you better than the ones that everybody likes. Even if it's not their favorite
‘Joker’ review: There’s nothing funny about this very dark origin story starring Joaquin Phoenix
"Watched the joker this past weekend. I hated it. Oh Wow it. It was so dark it was so gruesome. I didn't expect it to be fun. Joaquin Phoenix is phenomenal. He's going to win every award. I'm sure he's probably one every award that he's been nominated for he's brilliant but has the movie goes. I guess it works but it just wasn't really for me. It's a little too dark and very disturbing movie. I mean I guess well done. The Dark Knight was really dark to know this is this is more real much more gritty and I love the Dark Knight. That's dark movie. I'll I'll give you that. Dark movie. Loved it this is so dark. I didn't like it good performances. Not My favorite movie

an origin story for the classic Batman villain this is set in nineteen eighty one it follows Arthur Fleck of failed stand up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City assuming the identity of the joker. one small thing. when you bring me now. introducing is joker. just the sound of his voice has given me the creeps. you guys here right now I can't I gather this is not for the faint of heart yeah and that's for the kids I'm sorry that you're saying my voice gives you the creeps is that also true no you're walking. yeah it is a not for the faint of heart it's an interesting movie because it's either going to it's what is going to split the audience is right down the middle using a love it are you gonna love it it is I did not I did enjoy it quite a bit but when I left the theater I felt like I needed to take a shower if you look at other joker performances throughout the years you've got Jack Nicholson with the original Batman you've got heath ledger this performance is just as good it doesn't have the simplicity of the Nichols and I was dipped in acid and now the joker it doesn't have the mystery of the why so serious heath ledger performance hi this is a nuts and bolts from the ground up to build a foundation how did this guy become joker it's a very powerful movie I don't think it's as intelligent as it thinks it is when it speaks these issues mental health and so forth but it is very heavy movie and I really enjoyed it I I give I'm giving it a B. plus I always great a movie on when I leave home again and watch it again and you know how soon afterwards and I don't know what I'm going to watch this again but I will at some point but if you have any interest in it go see it don't take the kids and just know that this is a sinister psycho drama about a really twisted do it's not an uplifting film but is very powerful I heard one guy who saw it late last night say Oscar hands down for Joaquin Phoenix really in a role like this the I. well that's what's interesting you this movie because it's got great cinematographer you great score either this is going to get nominated for a slew of awards or none of them because of the subject matter I think Joaquin Phoenix is he so on restrained in this role he tackles it was like this reckless abandon that just you can't look away it's riveting and he's deserving of not only nomination but a win but he might not because they could just turn the academy and other voters for other groups off and I could see if you guys such as we can until you hated it I'd be like yeah okay I can see that like this we're just mothers we're ones all right by the movie guy gives joker a B. plus Cologne is time eight fifty to get or propellant shirts money update Amazon and Disney are at

RIP EVERYBODY WHO's lost a is there it's not cool but to say that video game or a movie's GonNa play somebody that pointed in Sandy's is ridiculous it's not it's not dangerous it just S- plays like somebody who has mental health problems like every villain movie in that case can be dangerous right like I just feel like this may be a PR snot. Maybe oh well them coming out and saying it's dangerous after being silent on it for a few days is definitely a PR stunt probably got together like you know we'd probably get a lot more engine if we just say it's dangerous kids and shit are GonNa Wanna come and see stressing out in the beginning be like man what are we gonNa do kill us whatever some guys like let's embrace it it's like that the interview movie you know what I'm talking about with Seth Rogan and yeah like that movie sucked and everyone wanted to see it because it got that reputation okay maybe it was because of was high I don't remember but I laughed my ass off at movie it was definitely one of the weaker of the of that Bunch yeah well of actor said do that do coming together to North Korea half yeah so anyway what do you think do you think the joker movies danger I move I'm excited because okay I think I'm what I say bigger joker fan than you bet I read the comics actually still but this join you're probably a bigger fan of all comics than me except for maybe swamp thing hi new Shabazz walk through John Constantine I know has killed one thing a couple of types saw saw things just misunderstood guy yeah but sometimes he doesn't care about anybody else and that becomes a problem for everybody and like when they were going to go against like the Green John Constance scenes like telling the justice like at one point oh well I guess that means we have to kiss one thing and he just walks up to swamp thing in like has this this whole situation crept kill him already and it was like not a problem anyway joker yeah I'd say you probably bigger fan just because they don't really care read comics anymore I still have a big Batman guy well here's the thing I don't want my character is portrayed if it's a good movie but it's not the fricking joker then why don't you just put hey you know that's how I felt about the dark knight because I felt like he his kids villain was good but it wasn't joker in more like a red ware honestly but it's still was portraying that joker character like in comics in a different version yeah I just I just don't want this to be a portrayal of like an insane man losing himself often distressing up and doing crazy shit that's what the joker is the joker actually has real consequences any torments Batman it's very hard to have joker movie without Batman this is why I'm having a problem with it I think hotel he becomes joker okay that doesn't make sense because Bruce Wayne's a kid and I don't understand it right like Bruce Wayne causes the joker the joker are so serious I'm just really pissed off about it man it's just not gonna live my expectations and you realize that it's getting like really really grave review is probably a good movie yeah but it shouldn't be much joker like why if I'm Batman in want a joker origin movie in the only reason I'm someone interesting because it's apparently really good okay if they can tie up the loose ends why Bruce Wayne is there as a kid what are you talking about Bruce Wayne Bruce Wayne's in the trailer busy yes kid when you put the smile on his face it was confirmed by Bruce Wayne Oh I don't I don't keep up with this shit okay I guess I only run a podcast for I didn't realize that yeah anyways Bruce Wayne's a kid basically in this movie okay yeah that bothered me all right all right next topic well I mean I'm going to go see it I'm going to see it so yeah we were supposed to go see it together yes and and do a review for the podcast and we will he's gentlemen we will okay do you see have you seen any movies lately she it to no actually I haven't seen any movies yeah I've not been to the movies at all so probably shouldn't tackle that what's next our list okay oh well continue I was GONNA say if we're talking about complex a little bit everyone should go read house affects the things are doing right now Jonathan Hickman he's amazing amazing job with fantastic four one of my favorites character on Marvel Comics that was all John mythic he's the equivalent of Geoff Johns to DC comics if that makes any sense to you okay so yeah everyone read house affects all right house of X.

"So the joker is coming now. it's a movie with Joaquin Phoenix. I'm gonna sit. Hey looks fascinating because it's this. it's not with in the the the the DC you right. it's not with part of DC movies not part of Batman lore it's a standalone. and it's really about the V. D. construction of a man Tony counts. Tony Katz today on Facebook Tony catch radio maybe that's the name of the right words about how we. how di I just kind of falls apart because the society. is. to every level falling apart. and how old he becomes Matt. and and it's twenty in Phoenix it just looks fascinating and it as a a big deal we're going to get into this level of kind of breakdown of of society I don't think that's the worst. conversation to have in the world I think it's actually a a fine conversation set to half. what the people who were associated with the shooting in Aurora Colorado so going back to two thousand twelve the movie theater shooting during. V. E. R.. showing of the Batman movie. there are saying and asking. is that. those involved in the movie the studio and everybody else. they should be lobbying Congress for gun control. and ensuring that nobody. gives any money. to the NRA. what in the world is the NRA have to do. with. you what happened in Aurora in two thousand twelve. the answer. quite easy to understand is absolutely nothing. absolutely positively nothing. so why in the world is that the story why is that coming up. what. honestly what a miserable thing to say. what a miserable way the acts. we're talking about just. what line for for you for your desires. lying to. to a move your ideological agenda. the array has no. part in this. why would you say that it does. and why would you use the absolute horror. what happens. not talk about the story before I I've done the store more than once in the air. because I still to this day. M.. in every way in all of this of of what happened because as the story is told. movie starts. court way through halfway through the shooter comes into the exits. and start shooting. now this is a gun free zone. for the record gun free zones are immoral and the people who support gun free zones are immoral people. nobody has a firearm nobody can should back there are actually people who said thank goodness no had a gun could you imagine the carnage of somebody shot back. who thinks like this. who thinks to utilize their minds in this way. I only wish people had the opportunity to properly defend themselves. again gun free zones are moral. but these days did the only thing they could do this PMR theater husbands jumped on top of their wives protect. brothers jumped on top of their sisters to protect them and I said it's family it's the one you love. yes I see it. boyfriends jumped on top of their girlfriends to protect them and I just find myself slipping back in my chair and just ruminating over that again and again. boyfriends and girlfriends. was it a first date the fifty I don't I don't know. you're you're not married you have made that level of commitment you're not blood. but you felt it important to do what you could to protect this person that you're with my god. may I only and we should only be able to raise sons with that kind of decency. they sacrificed themselves. in this way. damn. that's something else. every time. every time cuts me to the quick. every time. I'm reminded as to. what I would what I would do never mind what I wouldn't do what I would do to protect my family and how gun free zones are immoral. and how the second amendment remains regardless of what those people impacted by Aurora say or think I'm not mad at them although they are wrong about saying you shouldn't give to the NRA the NRA is not the issue here your clouding the issue you're making it this ugly mess. because you're angry okay I accept that you're angry what I will not accept is that I should be put in a position not to be able to protect my family as I see fit. because I will always put myself in a position to protect my family. as I see fit I think that's true for many many Americans out there. no. the joker doesn't have any responsibility although there been conversations and talk about the album that they've been threats. I think there was a judge at the premiere there was a shooting threat. at the premiere. that's. pretty gross. army criminal investigation command issuing a memo. the commanders of Fort Sill Oklahoma unnoticed better intelligence Bolton that said a Texas law enforcement agency working with the FBI had quote discovered disturbing and very specific chat on the dark web about the possible targeting of an unknown theater for a shooting during the October fourth release. men are scum bags out there. there are absolutes scumbags out there of the highest order you know what I'm gonna do I'm gonna make sure I'm in a position to protect and defend myself again said scumbags. and protect my family. because I want to go to a movie. because I want to be able to enjoy a movie. I want to be able to enjoy it with the people that I love. and I sure as all get out don't want that taken away from me whether it be by some people who think they're allowed to threaten. you mean we from doing what it is we want to do. or from some people who have gone so completely and totally ideological. that they think we should have our rights taken away from us I want to blame those who had nothing to do with what happens. I will go see the joker. hi my firearm at my side. and I hope just to have a really good time at a really good movie I'm Tony caps. yesterday yesterday.

"But again Twitter doesn't have to have a consistent standards. They've market dominance. It's pretty astonishing. How the left will continue to shutdown debate with no good excuse for doing. So simply because their confirmation bias is so incredibly strong when you have an agenda. It allows you to run roughshod it'll really doesn't allow you to run roughshod over your own supposed central principles you can tell where people's real principles. Why by where by which principles people are willing to violate in pursuit of those primary principals so Twitter says it's a free speech platform a place for people to speak out and debates, but they're real priority is not that the real priority, social leftism, and when the two come into conflict, social, leftism overrules anything having to do with free speech. Good on Joe Rogan and Tim pool for exposing the insane. Hypocrisy and stupidity of the. The of the Twitter the Twitter leadership Alrighty time for some things. I like, and then some things that I hate so things that I like there's a movie that is now available on Amazon prime it's called. You're never really here. It's sort of a new fangled take on taxi driver. Frankly, I think it's better movie than taxi driver. And it's with Joaquin Phoenix. Who is in fact, our finest living, actor, the only other competitor would probably be Daniel day Lewis. But he is retired Joaquin Phoenix turns in another fantastic performance. When you're talking about people who just inhabit a role where you don't even think of them as an actor. They're just the role Joaquin Phoenix as the guy the basic plot is essentially taxi driver, he is a he is kind of taxi driver. He is basically a veteran who has had some bad experiences suicidal veteran, and he has hired by a by a middleman to go save this this state legislators daughter from sex slavery, and let's just say nothing. Good into. Questions. How many are they won't guys size front door set guy of top. After the tone. Please leave a message. Manacle wants to see right away. State Senator Albert von TOTO teenage daughters, missing leave got an anonymous text with an address. I've heard of these places. Said you were brutal. Andy, I wouldn't hurt them. So he he did win the the best best actor did Joaquin Phoenix for for his role in this. He's driven actress, honestly, it gives me hope for the joker movie. So the joker movie is going to be directed by Scorsese. Correct. And Joaquin Phoenix plays the joker that is fantastic casting. So looking forward to that the movie is very brutal is definitely rated R. You were never really hear available on Amazon prime. Okay. Time for some things that I hate. So let's talk a little bit about HR. One HR one is the Nancy Pelosi led house houses first priority, and basically restructures voting and voter ID all across the country in violation of federalism. States are generally supposed to set the standards and state redistricting is suppose set the standards for how voting is done on the state level HR one, according to the Heritage Foundation seizes the authority of states to regulate voter registration and the voting process by forcing states to implement early voting automatic voter registration same day, registration online, voter registration and no fault absentee ballots. Balloting, all of which are the devil's playground for voter fraud early voting first of all should not be allowed except in really bad circumstances, or unless you're remember the military or something early voting is bad because a lot of news breaks right before an election, second automatic voter registration. You should not be automatically registered to vote because maybe you don't wanna vote. Same day registration is absurd. Doesn't allow you to actually check with the person is who they say they are online voter registration is very difficult to control no fault absentee balancing again. That's that's a problem because people vote absentee instead of simply going down to their polling place makes it more difficult to verify their vote. This creates a lot more chaos at the polls, which is exactly the opposite of what we need. It will hurt voted her because everybody will early vote it will degrade the accuracy of registration lists by registering. Individuals from state databases such as DMV welfare offices in California. You can have a driver's license. If you're an illegal immigrant, so if you ought to medically are registered from the state database..

"Okay. Let's get back to this amazing. Welcome back to this week in startups. I'm your host Jason Kao, Kansas. My guess today James Joaquin which is like Joaquin Phoenix. Correct. River, Phoenix, brother. Naming my son Phoenix. But it was just be a cruel upon it wouldn't be. Yeah. I miss river. Phoenix. That was so sad. I will you born in seventy sixty eight seventy two where sixties late six older than you little older than me. And. Do you remember ever fainting? Yeah. It's just so sad when he died, but his and his brother is so good. I love Joaquin Phoenix. I just saw maybe love all Joaquin's. I it is. Well, I do affinity for you as well. James? But it is interesting like his brother did the film, the master. Have you ever seen the mass have never seen it? It's on my wishlist when it comes out and thirty five millimeter, they have a seventy millimeter print 'em. Sorry when that comes back around you, and I will go see this is one of my most favorite fa my what am I top ten films of all time because of the performances of what can Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Who plays kind of like our on Hubbard, right? Has nothing to do with Scientology just has to do with two men. Yes. Trying to be important in the world and trying to make sense of the world and the power dynamics in just a legend man, search for meaning it's not about Scientology's everybody. That's why I think the film, and this is the movie you're gonna take me on for a date night. Absolutely. Because it is one of the most beautiful movies. Rachel Adams incredible. I mean, the performances are ridiculous. But it was also shot. Incredibly. Okay, I'm in. Okay. Amy Adams are Rachel. Amy adams. Thank you. Offman died of an overdose too. Guts heroin is if I have one message for every young person never ever in your life, ever, take opioids it is such a quick path to death and destruction of careers. I mean. Scary stuff is super scary. Just all these talented people to they're all trying to get rid of their pain. It's terrible new kind of venture capital to build solutions to this challenges. It's interesting because. Before we went for the break. We were talking about mental health. It is a major issue in our industry. Because absolutely is high believe that people who are drawn to extreme pursuits might also be drawn to them for certain reasons, he grew with that. I do. What is it about being a founder that leads to suicide depression, anxiety, all these things? Maybe an obvious question. But I think it's probably a long answer. Let's see the obvious part you, and I both know you have to be risk prone and fearless. And so you're doing something that is inherently likely to fail yet. You have to convince others that you are infallible. And we'll succeed. So the distance between the reality. And what you're putting out. There is great. Yes. That's never good for grounding. And when you add to that start up environments where people are living and working together in a ninety hours a week and loving it pressure. Cooker you lose maybe some of the support system of a separate family friends support that's outside of that startup reality distortion field that you're creating and then you have a gap between the the ground truth of your startup, which is listen, they're all likely going to fail. The majority foul you're putting out there. We're going to change. The world. So is a big gap. That's right, which you know, but you're forced to deny that reality. Almost like somebody going into war or something after put your fear on pause. And then you have to ignore friendships relationships everything else that might have kept you grounded now. So that is a quick way to get knocked off of center. I was still founders you are not the startup the startup is something you created. And this is your first idea where your second idea slightly to not be your best idea. Your best ideas, probably in front of you. So look at this just Moi's. Remember that James you a photo? Oh photo did not create gyms. Right. Doesn't define me. It doesn't define not who you are it. It's it's what you've built, and it's one in a series of things that you will build..
"joaquin phoenix" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Shuttle. You do remember. Jhansi Riley, our guest with Joaquin Phoenix in the film, the sisters brothers. Yeah. Tell me a little bit about the relationship between you and Joaquin Phoenix. I mean, this the relationship between the brothers is intense, and he sort of known as an actor who. You know, a very intuitive. You never get the same performance twice. When you when you re shoot a scene just tell me a little bit about the relationship. Yes. So what king? Yeah. Yeah. He has a very intense reputation as as an instinctual actor, and and for good reason, I think walking is peerless among actors, myself included. Watching him on film. Like, for instance, in the film, the master. I there's not many people in the whole world that can do that. And that can that can perform in such a way, you know, films such prepared art form so much rehearsal and discussion and set up in lights and camera all of it. And then they say action and you're supposed to act like you've never done it before, you know. And it's very hard to do to be spontaneous. After all that preparation, and Joaquin is just amazing that way. You can't tell what what Keane is going to do next when you're watching him on film. I describe it jokingly almost as like watching a raccoon go through the garbage cans like what what does it? What does he is? Like watching Joaquin on film is like watching a wild animal. I mean that that says a lot right there that statement watching him on film. That's one thing is it like that being on the set with them. You don't know what's going to happen. Yeah. That's that's that's how he lives his life. And I really I have a lot of admiration for Joaquin in that way. He takes things moment by moment. He doesn't like to over analyze things or discuss about the future or reminisce about the past. He's very much living in the you know, he finds the groove and is living in the moment. And I think that's a really great way to live. I mean, I don't think it's an easy road for him all the time because the rest of the world does not living in the moment. A lot of the time. But for an actor. I don't think there's a better quality than that. And can you go for us at first because we didn't know each other. We know each other a little bit just briefly socially. But here we were supposed to play two guys. Who are symbiotically connected. You know, this these brothers who've spent every Suns rise in sunset together from the time. They can from the time they can remember. And here we were to actors were suddenly in Spain together practicing riding, horses and shooting guns. And while we have a we have a steep mountain to climb in order to find the intimacy that these two brothers are supposed to have. And the way I did it once. I'm pretty good at adapting to people. That's one of the reasons I think I keep doing duos over and over 'cause I work well with other people I can tell when I need to adapt. When I need to be the beta as opposed to the alpha, I'm good at kind of like being adapted to people. So what I realized with Joaquin was I just have to listen, not talk this listen. And if there's nothing if he doesn't wanna say anything, then that's okay. And be okay with the silence. So we would take these three hour long hikes together or horseback. Rides together or car rides together. We were living together for periods of the film were cooking dinner for each other. We would just be in each other's presence. And that's how we found the relationship. I would just try to get my shoulder as close to his shoulder every day for as long as I kid, and we'd be whether we're napping in a boulder together or we're driving home after the end of a shooting day, or we're cooking dinner together. That's how we found that relationship. And can you think of a time you're shooting a scene and walking did something really unexpected that and you had to react to it? And it worked for gave you something really created. That was a daily occurrence. You know, you know, film is a very high pressure thing for actors. There's you're supposed to be very confident and act like you don't care in that ease is good on camera. But the fact is you really under the gun you're on the hot seat every single day. And the tendency is to kind of want to talk about things beforehand to make sure you're in a good spot. And I did that a couple times with Joaquin a couple times with Joaquim. I said, hey, you know, when you say this, I'm thinking this. And he's like, why are you doing that? What are you doing? I'm just talking about the scene. He's like, man. We don't need to talk about that. It should just happen on film. What are you doing? You're killing it, you're killing the moment. And and made the mistake of doing that just maybe once or twice with him. An and it was such a great lesson know like you said, I'm a veteran actor have been doing this for a long time. There's not not many people I meet that that that teach me lessons at this point about acting. But I was so grateful for that lesson from Keene. I thought you know, what you're exactly right. And the only reason I'm talking about this before we shoot it is because I'm nervous. I should just be okay with being nervous, and let us discover something on film because that that's really what films all about catching lightning in a bottle. You know, it's not about like executing. Well, what what what you've thought would would be good to hear, you know, it's about it's about discovering something on camera. That's that. I mean, if you can do that that's audiences time that very very engaging. So I'm really grateful for for those lessons that working taught me about staying in the moment. It's something I already knew. Being an actor who loves to improvise improvisation, the heart of improvisation is be here. Now be in this moment, not the next one or the one that just happened. But right now. So that was a really good strengthening thing for me as an actor working with Joaquin tub. It reminded me of what all the important stuff. Was there? A couple of details. I wanted to ask you about one is the scene where you're lying down to sleep you sleep outside and a spider tarantula crawls into your mouth, and I guess you swallow it that looks so real how did you shoot that? Well, I had to hold very still the spider that we use is actually not a venomous spider. It looks really scary. But it's not a train spiders as a spider Wrangler. I would just lay there and then close my mouth, and then as soon as they cut the camera open my mouth, and they get the spider out of my mouth. So that was a real spider crawling into your mouth. Yeah. No. Of course, it wasn't the CGI. But isn't it? Interesting. Dave. That we are. Now, having this conversation that you are watching a special effect in the movie, and you can't tell in other words, if I tell you, it's a real spider, you believe that it's a real spider. That's it's almost like the robots have one, you know, we're now at a place with special effects where you literally just have to know the behind the scenes truth in order to detect it.
