It's not that there are going to be more department stores on this list, probably, by the time that this no spoilers, but you know, people do have to go shopping for things at the time. Free rona, did you guys ever go to department stores? I guess if you consider like, you know, pennies and just say pre rona? Yeah, 'cause not a lot of people go to malls anymore, right?

No, it's not a Christmas movie, but that does have a department store scene. I mean, that's where people used to go in the 50s and 60s when a lot of these movies were made.

Or whatever but army. Yeah not deep art. It's definitely art because it took a lot of talent is our this movie. Deep yet and joe dante. The director. I've enjoyed the movies. I've seen of him. He saw he did a movie called small soldiers in late. Nineteen ninety s which is kind of similar to gremlins. it's like toys toys fighting each other toys versus bad toys so kind of similar themes there and And one of my favorite movies. The burbs with tom hanks from the late night The late eighties. But this movie You know if you haven't seen gremlins check it out there's talk about gremlins three coming around which is good because i distinctly remember gremlins too and i love the hell out of it. I may watch it tonight. I don't remember if i saw that one. Because i remember watching gremlins one within the last decade. But i don't know if i watched gremlins thinking to myself like if they made a sequel it must suck so interested. Not just bogus hardcore in the sequel. Man he might make so bow out of a paper clip. And it's awesome. I like when gives most things. Yeah he's adorable. I mean everybody loves gizmo and it's just a. He was the original baby yoga. It's a meager where you can tell. They had a lot of fun. Tell the filmmakers just had a blast with this and just did all kinds of silly silly stuff and put it on screen and it really works. And i liked like denison of it kind of like the main characters. They were like really innocent. Almost everybody in the show was well. I mean they saw how much pain inflicted on gizmo when they just built some water on him they just kept doing it because they wanted to. Produce more than so they weren't innocent is weird. I didn't like that. They doing cardboard robot on twitter. Says they need a world war. Two gremlins prequel. It would be interesting to see. You know the history of the gremlins.

"His cast that he travels with kind of exactly well. That's what this is. There is a director named joe dante and in every single one of his movies like this group of actors in it. It just happens. Now you've seen some of these movies. Matt i promise you. Films like gremlins gremlins to the howling small soldiers the burbs inner space among several others. You've seen a few of those. Tell your interview. yep now in. Nineteen ninety-four babacar auditioned for a little show called star trek. Voyager for the role of the character called. neil ix obviously. He didn't get that role but he was offered the chance to read for the doctor. There's something about him. They liked so they wanted to read for dr now. He kind of balked at the idea. He didn't love the idea of having to play a crotchety old disgruntled doctor for the next seven years and he'd also played a lot of doctors throughout the course of his career. Odd that he was trying to be a doctor back in in university but he fits the role. Could speak. speak the jargon. Yeah there you go but they eventually persuaded him to do the reading and to do the audition for an nfl. He ad libs the money. You gotta understand. Matt adler star. Trek is a no no you not ad-lib but he ad libs the line in the middle of the and he says i'm not a doctor. I'm a night light. Which is at spot where i forgot to turn off the program like he just adlon slade. The room killed the casting directors they hired basically on the spot and that became the basis. Imagine i don't know if you've noticed and it would be unfair to count the number of times that they do this but if we were doing like a full episode rewatch we would be count. We count off the rules. Acquisition over and deep space nine. We would count off the doctors. I'm a doctor. Not a list of jokes. In fact i think we had one today with dr zimmerman saying i'm an engineer. Dot dot dot. Yeah i think. We had one of those and i mean isn't that reminiscent of T. o. s. Yeah it's a. It's that throwback to something that bones used to say like he said it's just a couple of times he really didn't say it a lot but but became a mean so yeah exactly exactly so oh. He said doctor zimmerman he said. I'm a diagnostic tool not an engineer. That's what he said it. It's certainly in that whole deal. So yeah the. The rider started inserting those jokes for him. He apparently wrote several of them. Several of them himself. Now like several of his cast members. Bob would enter the star trek school of directing but he would not be nearly as prominent or prolific in directing as his co stars having only extra directed two episodes and choosing afterwards to primarily. Just remain in front of the camera rather than behind now he is though however credited as the first star trek cast member to have a helping hand into have a hand in writing an episode and he writes in episode called lifeline. Which i'm ninety eight percent sure we're going to watch later on when it comes up so we'll talk about this. I'm sure when it comes back. It's fantastic episode by the way really grid now. Outside of star trek has credits really are just too numerous and frankly to humorous to detail. But i will give you to jump out to me personally. Won he was on another star. Show stargate st one and the spin off show of stargate atlantis. Playing a bad guy kind of came in just as a one off type character is a bureaucrat. The the name was wolsey. Was the name of the character eventually. Though because it's bob accardo and he's amazing. He works his way into a series regular spot by the fourth season of the spinoff. Show stargate atlantis. Which by the way. I credit him for actually making that the best season of stargate atlantis. Although it was its final season they should have gone on season or maybe it was their fifth season. The should have gone on for whatever the season he was on was the final one and it was the best one because of because of what his character brought into the show. It's fantastic the other one that jumps out to me is matt. Did you ever watch the movie. Total recall the original. With omni with arnold. I think once a long time in a long time ago this this might not mean anything to you then but for those of you out there going. He was in total recall. Yeah he was. If you guys remember there was a robotic cabdriver he was the voice of the robot cabdriver in like this like i think arnold like rips him out at some point of the seat and takes over driving the cab himself anyway. That was bob book doing that voice. Now bob continues to work today. He's incredibly active on the convention circuit. All of the same time so apparently he doesn't have the same hangups that other actors do with whether or not they're going to be at the convention because they got work like bops making it all work out. He's very very active on the convention circuit. And he's really active in all things sort star trek related. He does lots of promo work for the series anytime that they're doing something like video games or you know trailers or if they're doing like the star trek experience in las vegas. I think he's even been in a couple of like fan films. And he's doing like audio books for the series and music cds that they're doing and special special projects that he's working on with his fellow trek alumni not just voyager about a definitely a lot of guys and he also was a guest spot on seth macfarlane star trek off. Show the orval. that's not wuzzy. Yes yes that's not a that's not being on the oracle. I love the fantastic shows. Like i think. I've told you before. Like i have watched the oral before we started doing this podcast. And so if he was. I wouldn't have known he was. Yeah there's a it was. He played a father of one of the characters and alongside him was an actor who played an who plays the doctor on enterprise. So you had the two doctors side by side kind of kind of concern in the one of those things matt. And i know you've said you've watched it before it's really one of those things. Whenever like a star trek alumni like shows up on the show. It's it's kind of a wink. Wink nudge nudge. Kind of thing. You know insights and circus it. I didn't know who these people were. Right because penny johnson. Jesus for real. Nate johnson is like what is the doctor. The doctor doctrine wake i. I knew her from other things. But i never drew the connections now. So that's kind of cool so star. Just just do this. A quick google search star trek alumni who have appeared the orville marina. artis danna. Try bob accardo tim. Russ our very own resident volkan. Benny johnson gerald we talked about. Let's see here. The doctor from enterprise the doctor's name was flocks. That's going to mean nothing to you. That means nothing yet and mom and then there's been a whole lot of. Oh tony todd. Tony todd he's the guy who played old jake sisko and he played wife's brother learn a few others. And and there's just there's a list of other actors who've who've kind of.

"Know we were there for the planning of both movies. Kathy and i went up to stevens house. We needed a rewrite on the script than we rewrote the script. In a couple of nights altogether on poltergeist and turned it in and so she was around for that and then. At came second. And i helped with the post production because that was really my forte. Because of verna i helped her with the or out to the movie post production and of course. We knew john williamson. Here's another crazy thing. John williams was in the army with my dad. All my my dad has a lot to do. But johnny was in the army band play piano. My dad played and and and he was out in the valley. So i sort of grew up with johnny and so you know and then he was stevens composer. And so in. It's it's all been pretty magical. Let us small world. So now i guess in in most scenarios. If somebody were to say to you. Frank who does the producer work for like director can fire director doesn't like the screenwriter. Whatever or doesn't like the production designer they can replace. Who would you say the producer answers to. I always answer to director. Don't tell studio that. I'm director producer. Okay that's why and that's why they like you. Yeah i figure that's really always seen that as my job is to help get that vision up on the screen and figure out all the logistics in this stuff because the The producer asks a thousand questions today and the director answers a thousand questions today. That's the difference in the roles and so it's my job to find out what's in their head and then how to execute it now. Why you know for a lot of people. I think they dream of being the director because then they're holding. The you know the the rains. I guess in a sense why for you is it. I don't wanna say more appealing because you also obviously have directed but why was that something that held appeal to you to be enabling somebody else's vision. Well i'm i guess i'm a problem solver. I love solving problems. I love getting things done. And that's more of the producers job. And i you know it's and i have directed as you say and that's really tough at least for me. I mean you know everything's on your shoulders and you get the credit when a works and you get the blame when it doesn't snow i just feel that my my skill set a in. Most cases fits being producer better than a director but then there are some stories. I want to tell myself and I was lucky enough to learn from Stephen bob's meccas. Because they gave me the second unit director jobs and the job of the second unit director is to imitate the first unit. So i learned from the best so i took those those experiences and then applied them to You know four or five movies that i've directed blowing so that was all the you were working with those guys. Most during these amblin. I guess the amblin decade Obviously with the mecca. It's it's back to the future. And then also who framed. Roger rather where i think you know what people should remember that was really the first blending of live action and animation ray which was just whole revolutionary concept and back to the future. I guess was unlike Well did you know with raiders that you were getting involved with a multi film endeavor from the beginning. Yes on raiders. We knew there were gonna make three of them okay. We all agreed that we would make three and with back to the future was also always understood. This is going to be a series now back. Their future was a single movie. And then when it did so well Bob and bob gale thought. Well there might be another place to go with delorean right and so i mean i'm looking back at the at that era. And it's kind of incredible that you were pumping out five or six movies a year in the in the mid eighties and not like phoning it in these are. These are major major movies. We're not even talking as much in depth about the goonies and all these other things that you had a hand in. And i guess i just wonder how for for as long as you did. Are you sustaining that. We're used to staining that level of output. Well i part of it is the kathy. And i were married so we were together all go off and and each go and direction but we worked with incredibly talented and fund people. I mean when you look at the directors we worked with and the projects we worked when he was a golden age is going to happen again and we were. We were able to just to do what we wanted. And we had great projects and they kept coming up and somebody. Br joe dante say i wanna make gremlins and we go okay and and people trusted. It's a studio trusted us to bring in on budget. Nothing ever got out of control and you know it was just a really really interesting and fun time and i think because the three of us were together all the time that made it work. So i you know as you say. It is the job of a producer to solve problems that may not be anticipated that arise and i just want to bring up a couple of things that you were presented with as a producer. And ask you just in the moment. What are you thinking. How do you how do you. How do you even see the the next day over the horizon. You know how you gotta get there. So i mean the most famous one i guess was with with Second i think it was a second indiana jones. Indiana jones the couple of doom and eighty four harrison ford gets injured and this is a hugely expensive sequel and it would have been a disaster if you had to shut down right Yeah exactly and you know again. It's just you take one step at a time. And i'm not sure we could have done this without a director like steven but you know. We had several meetings. First of all we had to figure out how to take care of harrison what that would take. And then what the recuperation time would be and once we understood that then we just had to reschedule of the movie and amazingly enough we had a. We had a wonderful stunt double for harrison dick armstrong and so he had done the first movie and he had done half of this movie temple of doom. So stephen was able to figure out how to shoot the scenes mostly in the mine in the caves and stuff And because there's a lot of action without actually cutting to indies face so we shot all of the shots that we would've shot and most of them were with with vic but at some of them would have been harrison. Hetty had been there. But we shot all these these sequences and then when harrison was well again and healed. He came back and we turned around and shot the medium and up shots of harrison. And i'm not sure there's another director except for stephen. That could have done that because those are the days we're on film and there were no avid and there was you know we were cutting on film so you didn't have the you know the luxury of having an ipad going. Oh yeah that's shot. I want it was all in stevens head back with stephen. You had great success in particular with in the mid to late eighties with color purple and empire of the sun and i. It brings up a thing that you know. It's it's no longer quite quite applicable. Things that happened in the schindler's list. Onwards but i just want to read you a funny quote of yours from around that time where he say quote working with steven. Spielberg is a lot of fun. You don't win many oscars but you do have a lot of fun close close and i think what people forget. Is that pre schindler's list. He was for whatever reason kind of often left out. I mean that color. Purple eleven oscar nominations including best picture but no directing nomination for stephen just like jaws beers before then and over eleven ties the turning point at the oscars then empire the sun ofer sex. These great movies. That for whatever reason i guess just wonder what do you think that was about was their jealousy of stephen..

I mean when you look at the directors we worked with and the projects we worked when he was a golden age is going to happen again and we were. We were able to just to do what we wanted. And we had great projects and they kept coming up and somebody. Br joe dante say i wanna make gremlins and we go okay and and people trusted. It's a studio trusted us to bring in on budget. Nothing ever got out of control and you know it was just a really really interesting and fun time and i think because the three of us were together all the time that made it work. So i you know as you say. It is the job of a producer to solve problems that may not be anticipated that arise and i just want to bring up a couple of things that you were presented with as a producer. And ask you just in the moment. What are you thinking. How do you how do you. How do you even see the the next day over the horizon. You know how you gotta get there..

"In terms of how it's conceptually put together Not so much. Calvin t back. Who was the editor publisher but more the writers like The late bob. Stewart and that's spelled b. h. obese stewart yeah. I've seen joe dante junior. I mean they really taught me how to think about and how to write about cinema. And that all came from castle frankenstein and That's why tripled cinema is what it is so i just. We just did an episode yesterday. We recorded about the texas chainsaw massacre. Because we weren't doing we're doing a series called d. based on a true story where we're looking at the the lead whatever the facts are behind the legends thing and of course everybody says robert bloch based norma bates on again the Minnesota also based on calvin t back exactly exactly. That's exactly what i was going to say. That's jess just calvin. But also calvin mother yes exactly. That is such an amazing story. I found it through. Tom weavers blog and read all about it. I was like oh so that's the astounding b-movie months jar guide. So i have to say if anybody's listening this you haven't read that store you need to read. It is really interesting so are in robert. Bloch wrote about it in science fiction fanzines. I've tracked down a couple of reprint editions. I may be able to reach run right here. Yes here we go. This is robert blocks The eighth stage of phantom. This is a book that was put together in. I'd say the mid sixties collecting someone who's fancying essays for science fiction fanzines. 'cause block was writing for science fiction. Fanzines going back to the thirties. And forties in here is an essay about calvin teabag calvin t beck's on other and psycho by robert bly near read that. That is fantastic. Okay i i've just been. I found this out about a month ago two months ago. And it's just been stuck in my head. i wanna know more. we'll get your hands on And and these are not plugged that i benefit from it. Anyway so please. Don't think of it that way I just love sharing information Dick clemson's richard clemson editor publisher little shop of horror. One of the great fanzines dedicate the hammer. Films has been running a series of articles in each new issue about some aspect of monster magazine culture and he reprinted with permission. Ted white the science fiction author and editor 's essay about visiting calvin beck's home and working on laying out an issue of castle frankenstein. While so he wanted to know more blake. You and that was like Three issues ago. Faurecia little shop reporters. I would like to read that for multiple reasons. I'm old enough. That i i got into writing in print right at the time when the switch was being made to digital so I i my original work in high school. My high school newspaper we would like go and they would print out the sheets and we do the wax layout right. You'll laying down. So you're exactly by the time i got to college. They have started switching to using macs. And so i. I'm fascinated by the way the zine magazines were done back then i think maybe the the sort of the line between professionals and amateurs was a little bit blurry in kind of is now some ways. Yeah well yeah. But those those techniques that fanzine editors were using certainly by the seventies and eighties were almost identical to how professional magazines were put together. A local newspapers weekly. The free weeklies that that every pocket of america has in some way shape or form so together the same way. And you see you go like i do. A lot of newspapers dot com archive research for the search of stops alda's articles in the seventies irrelevant to the show But you can see into local papers like especially around. They didn't put a lot of effort into the tv lineup in the movie ads. There's these are skew. Know there's it's it's it's it's i love it i love is it feels very refreshing to see how that's the feeling we wanted to get encrypted cinema. Yeah right did you know a tim does incredibly professional layouts and designs. But tim totally gets you know about tim and i are going through the stage now with with the second cryptic cinema book which is called scripted. Cinema the boggy creek bequest not to electric boggle olu it. That's that'll be the film issues so the second one is called scripted cinema. The boggy creek bequest. That'll be fantastic. We're at the same. We're we're still feeling out. How are we going to shape the material. I've turned in all the texts material which is massive. We may have to break this into two volumes. That will come out at the same time. Because there is a lot of material in this in this volume But we're feeling out what it's going be now that first book the one that you just held up that we'll be talking about primarily here We knew we wanted to look and feel like castle frankenstein. That was our our conscious model What was harder for me articulate. Originally to tim was that i saw the book. As sort of a conceptual origami. I wanted the book to kind of fold around the reader's mind regardless order. You read it in. They go guys. It's not a linear book. the i cooked. It's i ended up writing books backwards. What is going to be the third volume next year. should have been the first But i you know. I was just starting. I was just beginning to feel my way around. Okay what is scripted cinema. So this first book is sort of putting the boundary lines up and some people justifiably right from the start complained that some of the stuff i wrote about aren't classic cryptos while aji right yes. Argument is cryptic cinema like horror. Cinema like like all genres and cinema is quite diverse. It's quite big and i was. I was trying to hit. The furthest reaches of these are the things that that are sort of defined the boundaries the parameters of what i think crafted cinema is and the second book which is focused primarily on the legend boggy creek the nineteen seventy-two charles. B pierce film is just about one movie and what it spawned when it caused what. What the legacy. That followed the legend of boggy. Creek is because and so. It's a more focused book than that. First volume is like our shotgun blast. Yes magazine. good yes yes in a good way. Yeah and it was also about. There's a log of Films that i like you know do do do films about urban legends fit. Well that's why my long right up of this obscure elmira new york shot independent movie. The glass had is in the first book. What about hp lovecraft. You know i mean is when hp lovecraft referred to the yeti for one of the first times in popular american fiction he wasn't referring to the classical yeti that you and i think of today he was linking it with these creatures from beyond the stars and and putting it in the context of these sort of crustaceans that that show up in vermont in his story. Whisper in the darkness. But he's talking about the yeti he is referring to lower that in the late nineteen twenty s was pretty obscure. Yes not known the way. It wasn't a nineteen fifties where it had entered the popular imagination. So you know. I was testing the boundaries. I lotta people argued with me. About including equinoxes. Nineteen seventy film equinox in there. But you know. I got a whole stack of paperbacks over here in my library from the nineteen seventies of books that mash up ufo sightings and bigfoot sightings. You know there's this weird. Blurring that happened in crypto. Zoology in the late sixties and throughout the seventy s. Were they were they from another dimension. Oh that's not gone. that's john. John keel was one of the exactly the dimension theory and now it's like so that first book was really about let me have some fun talking about the films that are at the far edges. Let me hit the grace notes. I made sure creature from the black lagoon. King kong that classic bigfoot movies legend boggy creek. They're all mentioned and pictured in cricket cinema but the focus really begins with a second volume. The first book is meant to be a fun monster magazine and it is..

Break go home to my three minutes later on walking into three camp and then bug strong literally ends on the taco tuesday. Yes that's aloft just in some ways bidding and so but like how did you get here. We're tunes it's like you're not gonna say like we fucking broke the servers we all exist in your world once again in the original space jam. Michael jordan has to reckon with the discovery. Your real all of you are real like there's a reaction to that you exist in this. It's just like oh you found a way to come through the tv cool. I don't have any spare bedrooms. We have the answer. Is you probably have a lot. It'd probably probably fairmount aspera. Also do tune sleep. Do they know what's the big red guy again. Gossamer love gossip. I get screen time in the transformation he does. I will say we should. Let's play the box office game. I'm done talking about this movie but there's one of them. Sorry we have at least another hour. There's they get turned into as you mentioned three d. c. Yes which we knew because there was in the promotion. And there's like. Oh god now. The movie actually percents. This is like a hellish abomination. It's like yes. Algae rhythms final insult. Is this yeah. So it's kind of funny. That's in there where they're like. Look we did it. And they're like we know it's bad like we know that's not cool. I also just want to remind you do it. A also wanted to mention i noticed. I was in the crowd in the movie. You're in there. I had no idea i remember. Being they acquire blank check productions. What part of what happens to. Lg rhythm at the end of this film. Do we have leave right right. And warner brothers. Just takes his next pitch. There's not even a sequence of warner brothers. being shut. That down shocked in a canon. Like michael jordan is like nerd locks. Why did you let him talk like this. And they realize that they have an abusive boss and they fucking shove them in a canon and then the nerd looks are on the basketball court for two shots at the end of the show. I'm seeing here that i forgot. He remember he post arises algae rhythm yes fatality. Ernie johnson johnson to does the you know the the commentary who is a great a great a great man television personality guy. Every but just really. It's a tough. that's not when when them is deleted. In that moment i forgot remember. He goes like this isn't how i want to that part of the game. I think yes. Rules apply to himself. I guess loser is deleted. it means nothing and when what's his name Chris davis who plays malinche came on screen. I was just like why. Didn't they hire little relative. Do this usually right. Yeah and then very little real and and what's his name the other commentator in. It's just like well. That's not putting him in a bill. Murray position he has nothing to play off of. Yes you're just putting him with a guy who's not a comedian on a green screen reacting to nothing pre-written jokes whereas like murray night. The whole point is like give the basketball players someone to play off who is funny as opposed to an okay child actor and a dramatic actor who is trying to like cut loose by the way if they if the sun had just designed sort of the the the new. Nba jam right. That would have changed the whole. That's all it needs. This extra layer kevin but just the whole idea of random like the power ups. I wish i could remember any of their names. As the problem any of the trick plays of course there's the notorious five flips the court with a spinning. He does do that. I'm trying to remember. What are the things that happened. They move the hoop right is algae rhythm moves hoop and just that one time done that more often. If you wanted to win my pregnant she does it. She does does the like slow motion on kronos and the only one i kind of like has it felt a little more like actual looney tunes. I think the only looney tunes they get right in this movie while coyote and road runner and it helps that they're silent and they can't have them say dumb shit but that that bit is almost a a decent. This is how a looney toon. We'll play basketball thing where he has the crazy mean contraption and he puts birdseed seed on it and he knows that roadrunner will hit it really fast and make a bunch of balls that works for me. That was yeah. Give that a five. Yeah i forgot about that to read the the the the many wylie's also go into the who the clones right right and so that i mean gets them a lot of points. You need to acknowledge that was just good play they do. I just want to say We talked about the aboard. Space jam sequels. They didn't make right in action was supposed to just be a pin of like. It's been six years. We need to get something back out there. And then we're gonna make skate jam. Their plan was to make skate jam right after back and actress back option which is whose charismatic as tony hawk. Such a good actor. Good actor. I really enjoyed to sir. He doesn't speak in his crap back and actions a huge fucking a huge flop even though it's a very artistically successful movie yes i it has been a joy for me because i've defended that movie for eighteen years now last month of probation articles as people being like this is the one we should respect not space jam and that movie look. Is joe dante trying to deal with a lot of stupid studio notes. And there's weird shit in that movie but it it has a pure heart and there's really exxon chevron and he gets the looney tunes But since then like every three years warner brothers tries to do something. With the looney tunes there was famously. The sing lunatics unleashed which was their post back in action. Thing where they were like okay. We failed the lunatic. The looney tunes are no longer funny. There batasuna comes. Superhero dislike dark gritty. They all have like neon tron colors and like gritted teeth and they're like a space force that's fights people and that lasted for two seasons and was like despise. They did a show called the looney tunes show. That was all the characters but in like a sitcom sort of setting bugs and daffy were neighb- roommates trying to fucking remain. The way knew that was just like bugs. There was another one that was on recently. I will say this lebron on. This movie is rumored as early as twenty thirteen riley. People make the joke as as soon as lebron the court twenty thirteen. It's rumored. I remember because i was on the set of a draft and it's reitman joe metrics appears to produce that fucking movie and i was like what's the deal with this genetic. No one told us like a good luck god speed. That was a fucking nightmare. Make that movie have fun trying right and then a year later i believe train comes out is a big hit. And then lebron signs overall deal with warner brothers and people are like they're ego. Finally it's happening. It takes five years to get to filming after that point. Justin lin's attached at one point because nowhere. The dick ebersol sons. Were writing it. At one point they fall off. Then when kugler nancy comes on when it finally gains traction and than nato salsa when lebron musto which by the way all part of everyone says oh he's doing it because he wants to be fucking doing this argument stuff..

Is that why you're kept them in the basement sensitivity. it may be right And they did say something about cocaine no not take it back that they actually take dust baths and not watt. They don't bathe in water. What happens if you get the for white guys. What did they bath house. That word. wait a minute you got. You just confirmed the statement right. What are you please go on. They roll around in a special dust. Cocaine and that's considered a dust bath well because they don't like water. Tim just said right. We already said that right. So thank you for agreeing with us. They didn't say anything bad would happen. Well maybe your source. Didn't we saw the documentary. We saw the the chaos that ensued. And so okay so nothing bad would happen but i. I like to do things that make my pets delicious. Katie nothing bad will happen if you dip a cat and kitten a bucket of hot sauce. But you don't do it you know and if you do that it yet things can go bad. Either attitude changes quite. You can keep your dog at the addict but it's just delicious. They're just so cute doral. Look look at picture after you give them water or feed them after midnight. That like i said they look or expose them to the sun. Yeah yeah a little different than little less cute. In my opinion you have those pictures. There's they're everywhere. They're all over the internet them to sunday. Come out looking like katie delicious. I'm on the internet. And i haven't found any of those pictures. Jack you have so katy. You mentioned your grandmother. Had chinchillas. Stool mr delicious stalls as a matter stall stall stool did she did. She try to keep it out of sunlight. I guess maybe after they're dead. It doesn't matter a lot of marriages right. Did she wash it in the washing machine now. She took it to dry cleaners. Oh the what what the what. Cleaner dry cleaners. Thank you you another thing is if you guys did do your research correctly like obviously being greg did You'll know that one of the first sightings was by personnel madeline tolentino. I believe and her description of the chinchilla was a lot like the You know what we're talking about after the the water and or so. So we believe what she saw was a chinchilla that had been fed after midnight or given water or Exposed to sunlight skepticism. Came the comes in with her story. Is that. Her sighting was in close proximity to seeing the documentary. That you and i are referencing jack. The name of the documentary I think it was in french. I don't france caveat physical my sister-in-law which arise from visit. Joe dante was the producer. Do you think that maybe some of this because chinchillas are known to have convulsions. delicious and oftentimes. They'll they go into convulsants have stressed convulsions. If they during feeding those greedy jerks waiting in line patiently with your friends stress can vote during feeding if they see other chil getting food. I that they tend to have stress convulsions. Maybe maybe that might be something that I know the first time. I saw one like it was around. It was in the eighties. Like nine hundred eighty four. I believe was the first time i personally was. You know experienced a chinchilla and it you know they. They're scary. i. I'd like. I said it's weird to have something so cute You know becomes so so scary. I mean i. That's the part that that you know with once you do. Give them that water. After midnight it becomes. You know. I mean it can be arguable. Sounds like a lot of marriages i have to say. Katie that we get this subject. I was kind of searching for some type of mystery. I'm not coming up with the same mystery that these two were coming up with. Did you have any other things that made you think that i. I'm amazed that these came up so much. It's an odd subject but the myth of the science lines up guys you'll water version you know. Keep it in the dark. Re keeping in cages. You know special rules for its care. And the who among us hasn't experienced a frustrating experience with directions that were maybe not well written or written in the wrong line. Which i think at the end of the day. I think we're closer together than we thought. Yeah i agree. I'd like to read the tagline for the the the documentary. That mean greg had so it says a young man inadvertently breaks three important rules. Which obviously we already discussed concerning his new pet and unleashes a horde of. I don't even know. Mel mel m. a. l. e. v. o. l. e. n. t. l. y. Villain malevolent malevolent lee mischievous monsters on a small town. So again you know so. This was a chinchilla attack on the on the town. Yeah because of these rule because of not following these rules like that's like i mean there's obviously there's certain pets that have rules right. You get a sneak you keep you know the cage locked or whatever right well story katie last night but this is this is above and beyond like this. This seems like honestly like when it gets down to it if you really get into the details of what happens. It seems like you shouldn't be able to have these things as pets. It really does specials. Yeah yeah yeah. I'm surprised you guys haven't seen this documentary. I just looked it up it. Gross like two hundred twelve million worldwide. It was everywhere big. Yeah really big so Greg what's a story about. You said that you took snake got a cage. Is this a cautionary tale or well. Yeah yeah i guess it. Is you know you guys have. I probably told them previous podcasts. About the time. I had to sneak this very same snake from denver to philadelphia in my shirt. 'cause they airlines would allow me to fly with them.

"joe dante" Discussed on WBSM 1420
"Grace Moretz who most people would recognize going all the way back to stuff like Hit Girl in the movie Kick ass. She's been in a bunch of other stuff. She's making a relatively decent transition into grown up rolls. I mean, she still looks very young, so she still sort of plays that teenager. I mean, she's in her twenties, early twenties, so it's each appropriate but she could still play like a high school teenager, but nothing to this one. She's always you're the woman in her twenties, actually living a regular life. I knew nothing of this movie. I knew it had to do with an airplane. A bomber in World War two and that was it and I watched it and it was A surprise, a very pleasant surprise. She gets on this plane. And of course, you know it's World War two, and it's the 40 isn't so the guys are very dismissive and crass and insulting to her and don't want a woman on the plane, but she has orders. And they basically Shover down into the gun turret because they don't have a room for her in the rest of the fuselage. So they put her down there and a good chunk of moves like a third of the movie takes place of her in that gun, tore it. And what she's seeing, and they know talking to him on the radio, and it starts off. It's like okay, it's it's this. This basically is World War two drama where she's got something, and she's concealing something, but she's got an ulterior plan and everything and all, and then she sees a Japanese plane and she's trying to convince them what she sees and then being able to To shoot. But then there's like Gremlin show up, which is I mean, it's in the trailer. You see the gremlins in the trailer and what what's so funny is at a certain point. It turns into that nightmare 20,000 FT Twilight Zone episode With William Shatner. There's a man on the wing of the blame, and that's what she's trying to convince them because gremlins were such a There's such a mythos in World War two and and it's. It's a shame that there hasn't been more done about them. I think when Joe Dante made the movie gremlins in 1984, he killed any sort of use of the term because that's what most people think of As opposed to what they originally came from. Which were the bombers. Whenever something would go wrong with it plain, they blame it on the gremlins. And then it moving just gets wackier and wackier than there's crazy stunts going on and big action sequences and a zoo. The movie just continued. I was just getting more and more into what I was like, Wow, through more crazy stuff at me. I know that the physics doesn't work. The dog on it. I was like I was surprised to see this movie go where it went, and it just keeps going all the way to the end. And that's why I love the heck out of this movie. I was one of these things that I was because generally, the first movie of the year is pretty awful. I mean, it's just.
Eli Roth's History of Horror: Uncut
Interview With Roger Corman
"The word legendary is overused but in the case of roger corman. It's well deserved. Roger trained as an engineer at stanford but after four days on the job. He quit to make movies. He began producing and directing low budget. Independent films are getting the underserved teen market. What is films lacked in production value. They made up for imagination. And as roger famously declared he never lost a dime on a picture and he made a lot of them. From nineteen fifty. Five to nineteen seventy-one. He directed over fifty films. Everything from monster. Movies to biker. Pictures to his famous adaptations. The works of edgar allan poe. He focused on producing and film distribution launching the careers of some of the biggest names in hollywood including francis ford coppola jonathan demme joe dante and bringing films by autour like david cronenberg. Ingmar bergman federico fellini to america. Rogers sat down with history of harsh showrunner. Kurt sanga to talk about his remarkable career. You started off directing and producing low budget films in the nineteen fifties How did you deal with the limitations. Faced the early films. I directed i was beginning to director with short schedule and i did what i could. I absorbed films saying. I use certain camera techniques that i've seen before and invented some myself. Now i'm not certain. I really invented them just that i had never seen them in other films. They may not have been as original as i thought. Nine fifty seven directed something like nine films Including tack of the crab monsters personal favourite Fm didn't have a lot of production values. But it was packed. Full of interesting ideas. A what are your memories of that film. Well i remember specifically said didn't have very much money and i remember exactly. The crab monster cost twelve hundred dollars and it was paper my shea but it was very big and it looked pretty good but we were shooting at on the rocks at cabrillo beach and the waves were hitting up against the monster and i could see the waves. Were destroying the back of the monster. So i had to shoot as fast as i possibly could and from only certain angles not to let the audience see that. The vaster was being destroyed. Well we shotted speaking monsters. Tell me about the monster from it. Conquered the world well. The monster from saturn was based upon my studies at the university where i studied physics and i tried within the fantastic world of science fiction to be as logical as possible and i realized a giant planet like saturn would have heavy gravity so therefore a giraffe could not exist but a turtle could because it was close to the ground and would be able to handle the gravity so i had the monster built all about the height of my hand here and thus say was physically correct for the planet saturn. I was having coffee as they were setting up the first shot and beverly garland very hip. Young actress came up to the monster and she looked and she noticed that i was watching her
Joaquin Phoenix to play The Joker in Scorsese produced film
"All right, everyone. Appreciate those. Sorry if you didn't get rid, but we are moving onto segment to now another addition of almost famous wherein we go over actors, famous or not to turn down what could have been roles of a lifetime. We're gonna start out with John Lithgow. He almost played the joker twice apparently in the original, Joe Dante version of the movie that never got made. Joe Dante was gonna make Batman. And then again in Tim Burton's first movie, he was gonna play the joker. I think John Lithgow would have been a great joker man for sure. It's almost like more of a. Classic joker? No. I don't know that it's an odd choice. I wonder how they would have done them up. I wonder if they would have given the the wig and the green hair and everything, or if they would have kind of leaned more on the way he actually looks. That's interesting if it would have been Tim Burton. I think he would have gone with the same. Yeah, same bookie. Yep. Yep. But Jack was great, but I could totally see John Lithgow down with that Emma stone one for LA La Land. But originally that movie was going to be a Watson. In fact, it was going to be mwana miles teller in LA La Land, a movie. You hate mean Hermioni from the Harry Potter films here, what. Is that a movie about a Potter? That's Harry. Yeah, that'd be funny a. r. y. Potter here suit Potter. I love that word here suits. Wonderful. Mark, Wahlberg gonna call him out on this because he originally read for Brokeback mountain. A believe in Jake Jilin part in, he has admitted to quote being a little creeped out after reading the script soldiers. Kisa dude. Yeah, exactly. As Mark Wahlberg talks. He said it was very graphic and descriptive told angry. I like you. You're towns agai and if you wanna talk about it more. But thankfully he didn't. So Mark Wahlberg GIF y, sir, seriously and good for you. Jake Jilin hall for not being homophobic on. Back back two steps. Did you hear that? Joaquin, Phoenix is gonna play the joker in new joker only joker Centric movie. Oh, really like it. I love not a, what's his face from now. God let. Oh now they're done with that guy. I thought that he didn't see that movie, but I thought that was supposed to be the only good thing was his joker was good for like five seconds and really make up of the joker was like we had like gold teeth and like face tattoos, and it was just it was the weird choice to did you see that movie? I did. It's that bad. It's not good. Yeah. It's just like you could tell it was a movie. They had to like fix. They had to triage them and and post, and every scene was just a big set piece song with very little dialogue..
