How Democrats Are Using Trump As a Piñata
"I'm talking to John Zemirak for the whole hour. John, you just said that you thought I don't know if you were kidding or not. I'm not sure that I'm I'm never sure whether I'm kidding or not anymore because I say things that are satires. And three weeks later, the Democrats read my satire and put it in as policy. I joked about Covid Covid patient nursing home story hour in nursing homes. And three weeks later, Andrew Cuomo did it. So I hesitate to offer satires because the Democrats seem to be following me for policy ideas. But what I was saying was I can imagine Trump being elected and the Democrats still not letting him out of jail. And people like Bill Barr standing up and saying, well, the rule of law requires that the president remain in jail. And I've got to go play some golf with Mike Pence now. Well, listen, I'll say it again, I think that. Every day, more Americans are waking up because the way they're treating Trump, you just say, you know, if you didn't believe it was political every day that passes, it looks more and more political. And so I think that there is that on some level, this is good news that their desperation is forcing them to look like what they are, which is monsters for a long time. I thought Donald Trump was kind of like Joe Pesci guest hosting Saturday Night Live. But if you treat someone like Alexander Solzhenitsyn long enough, he starts to sort of grow into those shoes. They are making Trump the scapegoat, the whipping boy for everything and everyone that they hate in America. And while Trump is imperfect and kind of selfish, and I think there are a lot of things he should have done differently. He is kind of the he is the pinata and we are what's inside the pinata and you smack Trump and we fall out on the ground all scattered. So they're going to keep smacking the pinata because they want to kill us.

"Yeah, it's great. I'm, I'm on board. Two tickets, please. For lethal weapon five. What age is myrrh talking to retire? He's about 80 right now. So he's mandatory. He's going to have to come down to retirement. You know what? One last gig, just one last, it's always one last, one last heist, one last coming out of retirement. Like, Hey, I can do a little police work. I can be your guy in the chair. Yeah. I'm watching it. Um, but yeah, it was good. I've, I enjoy all the tropes. I enjoy all the action scenes. I mean, to me, this is the one that really kicked off. I enjoy two a little more. I think two is the best of all of them. That's my favorite because of diplomatic community. Sorry. I'm going to keep saying it gets a little more, a bigger, I mean, it's a great, it's an underrated sequel. It's it does the same stuff only bigger. Like you said, it embellishes the characters, um, adds new characters and actually like add to the story, you know, rather than this useless superfluous characters, it doesn't get feel over full with like new characters. Joe Pesci is a great addition. Um, two is my favorite, but this one might be a nine for me just different, like sheer nostalgia. So I love it because it's like, I loved it as a kid. I wore it out, watched it as a kid. I will say out of all of like the, the entire, uh, lethal weapon universe, the line that I quote the most is from Joe Pesci and it's they fuck it the drive through. Yeah. I get to use all the time. Yeah. Um, I was going to say, um, but yeah, I, I love it. I love to me, this and Die Hard and point break are all kind of part of that same era. There's like action. You could bundle those up into one thing, make an afternoon out of it for me and just watch all of them. So give me, give me, uh, your order of those three movies, which one's the greatest point break, die hard and lethal weapon. Give them to me. I would go die hard, lethal weapon point break. I would take die hard point break with a weapon. Sean point break, die hard, lethal weapon. All right. I I'm with Tay. I go die hard point break lethal weapon and point break is still brand new to me, but God damn it was glorious. I still love lethal weapon. I was like, I, and I, if anything, now I've, I've looked at it more. You're right. It's like, it set this whole thing. Like I even went back. I was like, man, when did Beverly Hills cop come out? And it was like, I don't know. That was a Jerry, was it Bob, Jerry Bruckheimer, Joel silver, both like buddy, buddy. Yeah. So it's like, there was like some battle way out. Apparently probably. Um, but I think also I, I thought I looked at it. I think lethal weapon two and die hard two also came out pretty close together. So I think, yeah, I think 90 he's like, if I'm doing this, I'm doing it right. He was kind of, I'm doing these back to back again. There's a rolling cat. Exactly. Last question. Lethal weapon one, the only one that takes place during Christmas. I believe so. Okay. Cool. Yeah. And I've only seen two. I never saw when I say seen, I mean, watch it on TV with one eye open, hung over villain in three. It's a cop like with, Oh, they have like cop killer bullets. You know, I'll give you another movie that came out in 1993 that it was done by Joel silver demolition, man. No, God. Good stuff. Yeah. It's tough. Um, but yeah, that's been another episode. It has. Yeah. And we thank you guys very much. We've got Taylor. Oh, Hey, Hey, TJ. Oh, Travis, Bud, TJB, Sean Jordan. Welcome to the holidays. Yeah. Welcome to the party pal. I guess that's dire, but that's dire. I want to stick with it. It's Christmas. Uh, my name is Todd Wofford. Let's make like shepherds. Get the flock out of here. Exactly. Um, yeah. Great movies. Only we will see you guys next time. Be sure to listen, rate, and subscribe at apple podcasts, Spotify, cast box, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

"Lot more information. You can be anxious about it. Yeah, that's exactly right. It's a great article. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. Go to The New York Times and check it out. It's bop and sherry. Okay, so speaking of movies, tell me if you knew this because I just learned it and I was like, what? You remember the movie in my cousin Vinny with Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei and Herman Munster. Yes, yeah. That's fun. That's red Gwen. It was a really good actor. He really was, but I lost him. And she's describing how a 62 Pontiac could have a carburetor that could do this, but not do what the car did from the tire marks. These guys were being accused running from or whatever. Yeah, she was great in that. Oh, she's so good. Joe Pesci's so good in that, right? Right. Here's what I did not know. Joe Pesci's character, Vinny gambini was supposed to be played by Andrew dice clay. Not by Joe Pesci. Vinny gambini. Now, in the movie, he's this like scraping the bottom of the barrel attorney who takes on a murder case involving his cousin and a friend. And Vinny's the exact opposite of what you think of when you think of as a lawyer. You know, he doesn't have any Polish. He seems like a street hustler more than he does a guy that would be he got his license later in life. He didn't go to college then law school. I think he was like in his 40s when he finally got his license, but he's a smart guy. Well, it was supposed to be Andrew dice clay, the character was written as a former heavyweight boxer, like a big giant guy, which of course Joe Pesci is not. So how did it end up being Joe Pesci and not Andrew dice clay? It's really simple. The executives at the movie studio were really nervous because Andrew dice clay stand up routine was really nasty. If you remember, it was totally vulgar. Yeah. He claims he claims he wasn't a misogynist that was just the character. He's noticed guys like that in Long Island and he was his character was a composite of these guys. But I don't know. Anyway, continue. Well, meanwhile, so that the screenwriter has written it for Andrew dice clay, and it has described the character as Andrew dice clay. The studio executives are like, yeah, I don't really think so. Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox had a runaway hit with home alone, and Joe Pesci played one of the wet bandits. And according to everybody at 20th Century Fox, this guy is a great actor. He's a great coworker. He shows up. He's got a kind word for everybody, no drama. You should talk to him for this, my cousin Vinny movie. So the director brings Joe Pesci in to meet to talk about my cousin Vinny, and they're talking about the script. And Joe Pesci casually mentions the subplot involving, you know, these two youths and what they got up to. The director started laughing and he made a note, and that's how the line, the utes, got into the final movie, my cousin Vinny. It was the real Joe Pesci and Joe Pesci got the part, and people still talk about it. So it just goes to show you what's for you will be yours. Even if it doesn't look like it's heading that way at all. And I had no idea about that. Andrew dice clay's career just tanked. At one point, just thank. I think he's out with a book recently about his career. And he's got a little bit of a comeback going on. I forget what he's in, but he's in some movie. And evidently he was very good. But I think he played that character, whether it was really him or someone else so well, but people were just disgusted by him. And that movie that he had out years ago, the adventures of Ford fairlane, yes. And that was, I think, that kind of bombed. So I worked at a radio station. And I attended that in a theater. Did you? Yes. I did. I can't get that done. I've never seen it on TV. You never see it on, was it that bad? It's terrible. It was terrible. I've never given it my time, but I was just, that was just such a cool story about Joe Pesci, right? You would never you would never have guessed that he was not the original actor for that movie because he's so owned the part. It's impossible to imagine anybody else in it. That's right. So there you go. All right, it's bob and chairs. Leave us a talk. Talk back with the free bobbin sherry app. Well, here's something to look forward to if you're expecting a baby. They've created a smart diaper. It's a diaper that has a little sensor that will send an alert to your phone when it needs a diaper change. Wow. I don't know. I thought I thought I'd had every nasty app that was available. Could you put that in a kitty litter box? I'd like to be able to get that in the middle of the night. Wouldn't that be great? You know, it's real. My life not be better. It's really simple and it's so cool whoever invented it. It's a tiny piece of paper that's been pretreated with salt and it has an outline of a circuit board on it that they've traced over with a pencil, so there's graphite on the surface. And then the tiniest lithium battery you've ever seen is attached to it. And when the water molecules get absorbed by the paper, electrons flow to the graphite and sends off set up a sensor, then it sends a message to your phone, and it'll even let you know how bad the wet is or how bad the message you know what this means. Even while we're still going in our pants, we're being tracked. We're being tracked, yeah. We're being tracked now. We're being tracked almost right after the day we were born. That's what it comes down to. It's too much. I've always been able to tell with my other senses. Yeah. Changing. But maybe in situations where you're taking care of a whole bunch of babies, like hospitals and day cares and all, maybe that would be a place that we would need this. I really want my phone lighting up though with the poop emoji and a picture of my baby. I really want to see that the day that that happens. That is my idea of some fun technology. It's bob and sherry. Hey, thank you so much for listening to the bob and cherry podcast and the bob and sherry podcast we would love if you would subscribe rate and review and share it with a friend on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, wherever you go, and thank you again for listening.

"Did this movie hit you as a Christmas movie in the same way that Die Hard does? No, they didn't have the Christmas music throughout, but they have the same composer and you'll listen to hear those sleigh bells, but they did have like the shootout at the Christmas tree lot. Whenever, uh, Murtaugh takes rigs into that place to, you know, talk shit to them. Like the back of the window glass has like mistletoe and says like, Oh, sale sale. But I can't think any other house. The house is decorated. Oh yeah. Christmas. They were not good. She was using a nightstick. Because you're fucking it up. Yeah. Conducting with a baton. I just like when, when we talk about like, is Die Hard a Christmas movie? It's a hard yes, because like he's there for Christmas. It's a Christmas party. Joy is there. There's a Santa hat. There's like Christmas themed throughout this one. Just sorta had Christmas in the background. Yeah. Not quite as Christmasy as Die Hard, but more Christmasy than Batman Returns, more Christmasy than love actually. Yeah. Oh, but yeah, I mean, it's like at the end with Christmas dinner, you know, it's like, you're not going to make me eat the world's worst Christmas dinner by myself. That was really good. Thank you. Really like my wife's cooking. I've been to say the ending scene, the, like the fight with Gary Busey in like the, the water fountain, all the cops just like, let it happen. Oh yeah. There is no police oversight in this entire movie. He's just, he fixed his death inexplicably. It never comes back around to like being a plot point because they immediately just like figure out that he's alive again. Don't they, they fake Murtagh's death after they on an exploding toilet. They think you're dead man. And two or three, two. Yeah. See, that's, that's the other thing about this lethal weapon is that I think of all of them at the same time. And I'm like, it's all the same. It's all the same movie. Just also loaded weapon one, which spoofs not only lethal weapon, but several other like actiony cop movies. Yeah. That's the way I feel about a UHF that scene with where he does the Rambo bit where he's shirtless and he's just like, Oh, that's a movie we got to do. You got to do UHF. Yeah. But yeah, I mean, it's a movie that's been parodied so many times that I just think about those two movies at the same time. It's like Rambo three and UHF kind of similar areas to similar time period. Yeah. Um, but yeah, I love this movie. This is an all time favorite for me. They were going to lead the weapon. Oh, sorry. Six and a half, six and a half total. That's your total overall. Um, so I mean, this has strong nostalgia. I think this is the first rated R movie I ever watched as a young kid. Um, but yeah, I mean like significant boner. Yeah. My favorite band. Exactly. But this one, you know, it's like, like you say, it's like, it's hard to get past the tropes. This movie helped like create or popularize, you know, my favorite high in here. Yeah. Um, my favorite that I talk about in my review is I love the police captain. That's always pissed off at the two cops. Yes. It's like his job is to scream at the cops. The guy in this one, um, Steve K hand, he is in all four movies and all four movies. He's like, and same deal. And it's like, and she actually makes good points. You know, it's like, she makes sense that rigs may not be fit for duty. Yeah. She's plays a bigger part in the like sequels as well. Sorry. You can make your point. Yeah. Um, but it's like, I love it that the four movies, this police chief goes between either wanting to kill reason or talk or fire them or kicking those stairs. What's great is the sequels for this build on the previous ones. Like they, you know, show that they've been partners for longer. Uh, rigs is more a part of the family and they show more of the family in it that you could spend more time with them. Then they also introduce Joe Pesci. Who's a great little like informant little kind of sidekick shit bird. Um, and then they also have the psychiatrist and the captain take larger roles as well. They just, they flesh out the characters more, which is all great. Yeah. And then they, uh, introduce, well, you got Renee Russo and she was in at least two movies. I think she was in three and four because he had like, you know, rigs had a blonde girlfriend in the second one and that's the guy with diplomatic community. And when they tried to like get a helicopter and like shoot up his mobile home on the beach. Yes. Yep. Whatever it is. But yeah, the whole series is great. You got Jet Li and number four, spoiler alert, man. Damn. Well, they're getting their ass kicked and they're both like, Hey man, how did he get out of those cuffs? How did he jump up around and kick me? Like shit, man. Should we go ask him? I guess so. Like, fuck it. We're both too old dudes. You know what? Let's go ask him. And I was like, just the stupid bullshit.

"Murray Abraham salieri himself. He shows up. Tim goddamn curry. Yeah, Tim Curry. As a deranged wilderness girl, like girl scouts guy. Anyway, we're here to talk about lethal weapon. So yeah, this is one of my favorite genres, which I don't know if you can say it as a genre, but the ebony and ivory, the two things that apparently don't go together, but the buddy cop thing that they do all the time in this. And obviously they did it in die hard as well. And I just, I love it. I love Gary Busey in this. He's only in it a little bit, but he's one of my favorite characters. Good old chompers. He just reminds me of jaws and James Bond. He just shows up, he chews up the scenery. And just goes on his merry way. But can Mel Gibson is so over the top, you think like, oh damn it, the bad guy. He's in a car. I don't have a car. He got away. Not Mel Gibson. Fuck that. I've got my shirt off. I've got like a gun strap over here. I look buff. I'm gonna run barefoot to the freeway. Cut him off at the bridge. How? He's on foot. Jump a claim would have done that? Yeah. Like balls to the wall. Like really, talk about that dude needed a Red Bull before it was invented. He just needed something to some kind of pick me up. My favorite part about the movie is murtaugh and his family. Like you get to see them get to see his family dynamic, all that bullshit. But what it is great is that it builds on for the other films. Because I remember watching lethal weapon, I'm like, oh, I need to watch all these. So I watched all four of them. And a couple span of days. But you get to see his family, like, grow up, and then obviously they got what Chris Rock dating his daughter in the fourth movie. Joe Pesci is a fucking excellent edition in the later movies. This one, it was good. I give him a 7.5. I like how their relationship grows and continuing to watch it. Like, that's one thing I kind of wish some of the die hard movies had done. I need more Carl Winslow hanging out with.

"Sorry. I really, this movie just made me want to watch loaded weapon. Basically. Yeah. Um, I got to see that streaming anywhere. Guys, if you've never seen loaded weapon one, it's, it's Samuel Jackson. It's Emilio Estevez Goldberg. That's the selling good old F Murray, Abraham Salieri himself. He shows up, uh, Tim goddamn Curry. Yeah. Tim Curry as a, as a deranged, uh, wilderness girl, like girl Scouts guy. Anyway, we're here to talk about lethal weapon. Um, so yeah, this is, uh, one of my favorite genres, which I don't know if you can say it as a, as a genre, but the Ebony and ivory, the, the like two things that apparently don't go together, but the buddy cop, uh, thing that they do all the time in this.

He just reminds me of Jaws and James Bond. Like he just shows up, choose up the scenery and, uh, just goes on his merry way. But can Mel Gibson is so over the top. You think like, Oh, damn it. The bad guy. He's in a car. I don't have a car. He got away. Not Mel Gibson. Fuck that. I've got my shirt off. I've got like a gun strap over here. Like I look buff. I'm going to run barefoot to the freeway, cut them off at the bridge. How he's on foot. John McLean would have done that. Yeah. Yeah. It just going apeshit like balls to the wall. Like really? He talk about that dude needed a red bull before it was invented. I needed something to like some kind of pick me up. Uh, but my favorite part about the movie is, uh, Murtaugh and his family. Like you get to see them, you get to see his family dynamic, all that bullshit. Uh, but what is great is that it builds on for the other films. Cause I remember watching lethal weapon and like, Oh, I need to watch all these. So I watched all four of them, uh, and you know, a couple span of days, but like you get to see his family like grow up.

Uh, I liked how their relationship grows and continuing to watch it. Like that's one thing I kind of wish some of the diehard movies had done. I needed more Carl Winslow hanging out with, uh, with, with, uh, John McLean. You need some like no stakes quips, you know? Yeah. Yeah. Uh, yeah. So 7.5 for me, I think I've interjected all my other thoughts into everybody else. So that, that's all I got. So 7.5 is like a serious movie or 7.5 is like a comedy. Uh, no, it's just 7.5 as being a, like you said, the, the proto, um, film that kind of a lot, all these other ones spun out from or took a cue from. Yeah. Yeah.

"And all of a sudden they're standing next to it. It feels like they came out of the TV. This is the sort of thing. It's also the shots they hit it. Like DJ hits the shot and puts it like three feet. He barely even looked at it. It's like all right, fuck it. All right, fine. Then I'll hit the chip from here and just like, boom. Like barely lined it up. We watched varner make one varner, I think, has potential as a charisma guy in person. Like the crowd was really into him. He just seems relatable. He's big feast or famine guy. She was a basketball player. He definitely be like Jordan Poole. 33 points one game and maybe like ten the next who knows. But for the most part, you're right. Everybody roots for everybody. Everybody just wants to see a cool shot. Nobody wants anything bad to happen. Never want to be there for like a triple boat. Like cam Smith today at 12. Nobody wants to be standing there for that. Watching this guy just completely melt down at the worst time. All right, and you're right. You're right about all that. And actually, when you put it that way, like maybe it'd be great if more things were like that instead of searching for that negativity. And I've been there, it is one of my favorite sporting events. It exceeded all expectations. It's one of the few things I've ever gone to, where I was kind of annoyed that I gave the passes for Saturday to my Friends, thinking like, all right, time for three days, I'll have it. I wanted to go back in on Saturday, but you know, whatever, I'm just trying to do my Friends a favor, so I bounced. I was lucky enough to go up with homa. He invited me and a couple guys down here. Yeah, we went up to Riviera, and we did the pro am, walk with him on Wednesday. And so we just walked with him. And the thing that's always the craziest about. And real golf people already understand this. But just how many times you guys see it, somebody off the T where they're screaming for, they've got the arm up left to right. And then ten minutes later, they're putting for par. To see when you all happens to see the corrections to see the approaches. Like it's one thing with the drives and the putting and all this stuff. But to see the approaches where what they're aiming at and what a misses for them and how consistent they are, the flight of the ball, it's just to see it in person, not that it's any different than any other sport that you see in person realizing like how special these guys are. But I've rarely had as good of a time at a live event as I did at the masters. It's that great. I actually think it's done, but I haven't been to F one yet. I think it's the number one, I can't believe how hard this is. In person. Like when you see, especially that master's course, some of the holes, the 18, just how narrow that is and some of the shots they have to hit. And the fact that there's just people all around them on every shot that they just have to kind of shut out. And the level of concentration you need. Tennis was a little bit like that for me, seeing it in person with good seats for the first time. When you're seeing how hard it is to return somebody's first serve when it's a 130 miles an hour and just these guys in the bat and how they're just moving before the guys even hitting the ball and they just kind of know left to right and I was amazed by that. But you're right, every sport has something. I think basketball probably translates the best to TV for how amazing it is. I'm going to guess that watching F one if you had a good vantage point in person. It's got to be. A little bit more daunting. Yeah. I would say that's got to be, I mean, they have to be coming so fast. You would probably have no idea where they're even coming from. Last thing on the masters, the twelvefold. So cam Smith melts down today and you know it right away. Goes in and it's just like, they might as well, somebody might just come on the course and just shoot them in the head. It's just done. It's Joe Pesci, Goodfellas. This is a wrap. You just know it. But I was looking, I was researching all the things that happened on the 12th hole and it really is. It really has had some great there was apparently an Arnold Palmer thing in 1959. He had a triple wise coffin that today he had a plus 13. He went in the water 5 times, and he was like one of the favorites. Greg Norman, obviously 96, Mickelson O 9, mcelroy, 2011. Speed, I think, is the most famous recent one. And then molinari went in there and that set up the Tiger one, but I don't feel like I think that 12 fold dates better PR. I think when they show it when the master shows it, we need that conjuring music..

"I hated it. I didn't get it. I didn't understand how he fit in with them. And the stories back then were about, this is great. Westbrook, his bill to play off the ball. Now LeBron, you can serve his legs in the regular season because Westbrook can carry the offense and it's like, not only is that not true, LeBron's had to carry a bigger load that probably he's had to carry in a couple of years. Also because anytime he's done on the court that fall apart. Also, two of those things are just so wrong thinking, Bill, here's the first one. The Lakers had buddy healed. In a contract, you know, they had to answer to LeBron resting. The answer to LeBron west resting is perimeter shooters. People that can shoot. Because LeBron is ball dominant, LeBron doesn't like giving up the ball to somebody and rest. He's never done that. People have talked about that for the last ten years. LeBron just needs somebody to bring up the ball and he can rest. He's never done that. He's ball. Dominant. What LeBron always needs are people who can shoot. And that's when he rests. So he shooting and defense. Exactly. That's when he rests, because LeBron does not play man to man defense, he plays off the ball defense, because he rests. And so then he can play off the bustle, somebody drive him to the basket of the important point. That's what Westbrook does too. No defense. I'm floating around. LeBron's one of the best off the ball defensive players ever. You know, yeah, well, I mean, ever. That's faded a little bit at this point. It faded, but he can still year 19 of his bill. But when it counts in a moment, he can be effective at it or what I'm saying. 'cause Westbrook is not effective at any point. Liability, nothing but a liability. But you knew that last year you knew the year before, like this was a huge issue with him. He's not a good defensive player. With western Westbrook gets lost, makes crazy decisions at the end of games on both ends. But here's the thing. I've never watched him fully. I've only seen pieces of Westbrook like other people, like we see the good highlights, right? It is crazy how many poor decisions Westbrook makes for a person who is an MVP type player. It's honestly been like this for three, four years. I had no idea was that bad. Look, he was such an unbelievable athlete the first half of last decade. Yeah. That that can make up for a lot of. And even his MVP here. He's just an amazing athlete. So, you know, the warts aren't as glaring when you have somebody who is one of the three, four best athletes in the league. But now they got the same kind of thing. And because he's both dominant. And here's how it happens. Westbrook brings the ball down, throws it away, other team makes two points. Westbrook comes back down, throws it away again, now they make three points. Westbrook comes back down. Now he shoots it bricks, other team makes the three pointer power down by ten points. That happens in the span of 40 seconds many times. Why didn't Frank fogle just the moment he's like, look, I am the Joe Pesci walking in and just getting shot as I walk into the room person on this team. I will be the first one blamed. He's so if I'm going to be blamed, I'm just going to bring Westbrook off the bench and play him 20 minutes a game. And if he doesn't like that, then maybe he'll just sit out the season. I'm not going to win with this guy. It wouldn't have mattered. That was just one of the problems. The Lakers got a coach who's known for defense, and he won a championship with him and put it with the offensive player. Yes.

"Two biggest disasters in the history of government. Joe Pesci, Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio will get TOC sleepy Joe, he believed this bite administration's made some amazing blunders that air getting covered up. We'll get to the Super Bowl will get to the impeachment will get to Jeopardy and a whole lot more. This is going what's today Thursday and once the impeachment Tuesday Job, Arlette either it's Tuesday. Yes, it is. Market. It is Tuesday. Yeah. Wait a minute. Something's wrong here. That's like five days from why are they? This was supposed to be impeachment week. They're going to unleash all kinds of stuff on Donald Trump just to build up the excitement for the impeachment. They did start Monday night with the Uh, ceremony to honor the slain cop who was killed Brian Sick, Nick, Who? The Capitol Police officer who was killed. You saw that? Ceremony that they put up that yesterday when he was a great cop. It was such a tragedy to see him killed. But Pelosi, Schumer all of these people even bite and famous for one thing in all the years he worked there. They never said Hello to him. They brushed right by him. Good morning. You said Get out of my way. This paid no attention to this guy. And they pretended they were there to honor him. It turns out that Brian Sick, Nick, the slain police officer, Capitol police officer was a huge trump supporter. He loved Donald Trump. It was so important to him that he even wrote a letter to his congressman asking him to stop the impeachment. The sea wrote letters. Even The New York Times confirms this, he wrote. Letters to Congress has them not to impeach Donald Trump. So talk about not honoring the guy talk about spitting in the guy's face. They're going ahead with this impeachment. It's a total charade. Lot of pressure now on Donald Trump not to even acknowledge the impeachment or even appear or send a representative or do anything. It's I mean, you can make the case is totally unconstitutional, but more than that. The impeachment is where they do like the indictment. And then this is the trial. But there was another big point. There is no judge. They can't get a judge to come be the judge. They're going to try this without a judge. Have you ever heard of a trial with no judge? How would that work? Well in certain countries. It works just fine because you get the outcome they want. Under the rules. Thesis cream Court justice Chief Justice is supposed to be the judge. Roberts has refused to touch this thing to go anywhere near it. Now there is no active working news media right now it's all shut down to protect Biden. If there were actual reporters or any news media working right now, they would go to Schumer and Pelosi in C. Why is Robert's not appearing? Of course you asked him. You did call him and ask him to do this. What did he say? Do you notice? No one's ever even asked the question. Would that be an interesting thing to know when Roberts turned it down? What he said? A great question. Yeah. Yeah. What did he say? Oh, Tuesday. Yeah, I'm busy Tuesday. Can't do it Tuesday or I'm not getting involved in this. It's a joke. What did Robert say when you asked him? Why did he refuse to appear here? And I guess if he refuses, your next choice would be another Supreme Court justice. If all else failed, I guess you could get. Could you get a real judge that there's no judge in this impeachment? Just one of the senators will do it and not just any senator. They picked the biggest trump hater the most far left wacko liberal Trump hater, Patrick Leahy. Who has a scandal ridden past of leaking the most serious classified information to reporters. Famous incidents were there was a number of times he leaked out classified information. In one case, we had secret intelligence officers working in the most dangerous areas looking for terrorists. The stuff he leaked out, revealed some names, and one of them was killed. Because of Patrick Leahy. So this is the guy that's how much he hates every you know, everything just wants the leak to the press. This is the guy who will pretend to be the judge. He's not a judge. He's never been a judge. So totally ridiculous. The best legal analyst Great Jared, be with us later this hour. We'll go over this. Donald Trump gets to live in Mar a Lago. How do you like that? He can stay there. No way that one out fake news produced this letter. Remember in who was the early nineties when he bought Mar a Lago? Uh, he wanted to live there, and they didn't want him there back then. They hated, uh, Donald for they hated him and Palm Beach because it it was still the old real society. People in Palm Beach. They had no use for a Donald Trump Palm Beach. Today is a totally different place. It's the Long Island Manhattan crowd have taken over Bombay Beach. When you see anybody go Howie Yale. It's that crowd so To them. Donald Trump is fine, but The town of Palm Beach does not want him living in mar a Lago and way back when when he converted it to a private club, and they remember they tried the block and you'd assume hundreds of times a some point. They signed the some sort of an agreement and you wrote a letter and in the letter Uh, laid out what Mar a Lago baby said nobody would live there. It would just be hotel rooms for some of the members, no long term staying, and he said to them, I won't even live there. Well, they're trying to hold him that agreement. The town of Palm Beach attorneys have looked it over, and they said it has no legal validity. There's no Nothing legal about the letter or him, saying I won't live there. It's that there's no legal hold on him. He can't live there so he can live there. And he he will for a while. The other ways he was gonna buy a house nearby. Also, you know, Mar a Lago. It's just a country club. It's just like any other country club and every country club. Has a director who runs the place of general manager and they have a guy who's like the head groundskeeper and most clubs. I'd say 95% of them have a couple of houses on the property where those guys live in right job. Arlette. That's part of the deal. Get a house, right Superintendent usually or some superintendent, the club, the groundskeeper. Even the director of the club felt there's a house on the grounds. Part of the deal. You get to live there. So if all else failed, Donald Trump just to clear himself the superintendent the club, but he could live there so you could do that. Now you're laughing. That's how DeNiro stayed at the hotel and casino. He became the food and beverage director, and he could stay there. Anyway at this bite administration this they're really funny. They made the blunders and the gaps and the stuff they do every day, but there's never a mention of it. Remember, Donald Trump said one wrong word. Front page of every paper lead story on every hours of cable news coverage of this Gaff this blunt of Look what he said. Look what he tweeted. But these people do this every day. Jen Psaki, who said What do you think of her? That press secretary a real stiff. Yeah, She is a stiff total stiff. She wouldn't be the life of the party in a coma Ward. I mean, no personality at all. Just really, really mean it. Just months she looks like that nasty librarian. So she was asked about. That's a good question. Space force will, uh, will the by administration keep that and she just ridicules. Okay. Space force. Oh, you want space for so she She just marked it. Uh, I guess later and they asked her. Well, what have you talked to him? She admit you don't even know who the space force contact is. I guess. Later on, she talked everybody and they explained to her. It wasn't some silly Donald Trump..

"Only like only the great. Okay. Fully considered a I'm not gonna lie either. You know me. You know how I consume hockey. And And how What kind of hockey fan I am? I'm sitting on the couch reciting lines. From Joe Pesci from different, you know movies that Pesci's it when he's you know, Effective is there's patch every time he says Pesci on figure you laughing my funny funny How my cloud like a clown. Yeah, because I mean, that's you know how I consume hockey. Look, I think Cane's a good team, right? You know hawks, the very good play continues to be good. They scored a power play goal on a on a Carolina penalty killing group. That is very good. Look, I don't at the start of the season. You're like, Oh, well, I'm just gonna I'm a close the door on this and just move on and focus on basketball and may be the start of especially the way they started. This is what I said to you the other day, and you kind of laughed at me. You know what? I don't suck because it looked like with no goalie with a young team. Behaves is out, then that blow. We still don't know And hopefully he's healthy, You know, big picture healthy. I'm talking about that. It looked like they were going to suck. I said What I said, was I and maybe I was wrong. I thought you said that. After a tough start, they had won three of their last four games. It was like no I think they're 31 and four now is what I said the other day. There were 31 in three in their last seven. I thought Now they're 31 in four. By the way, I lost a lot of those overtime games. But they're getting point. They've gotten points and seven of the last day camp and a juice box. And and, you know, I get that like Yeah, I'm with you. I they've been more enjoyable. They've been better than I thought they'd be the question I have for you is And I know that this the scoring system has been in place for quite some time now. Why are you giving a team a point? Just in general terms, Let's zoom out and grab your sticks. Okay? Why are you giving a team a point for an overtime loss or a loss in a shooting? Well, there used to be ties. Remember? OK, They used to play the overtime and then it would just be a tie. So if you tied in the overtime, it was a tie. And and it was Dora's Dole winner. At least now there's a team getting points. That's fine. But why do you have three? Hockey is awesome. I love it. I love it, and I still love the shoot up. People still complain about the shootout. Patrick Kane is going slow motion. He didn't score yesterday. Nobody scored. He almost stopped, right. That's illegal in that sport. Right? Right. You got to keep the puck moving. Okay? But my going is is Look, I'm with you. I thought I told you that the other day like I'm late to the party. I get it. But three on three hockey. I give me Give me 60. Minutes of that. That's that's incredible, But my point is, is that I just don't to need silly. If you win and regulation time, two points. If you win in overtime, or in the shoot out one point, a team that doesn't win a game shouldn't get a point. Type no longer part winning over time. You only get one and then and then the loser gets hero loses over timer in a burn penalty shots getting a point. I think that's silly. I think that's silly. Like you know what? Sorry. It was tough game We lost in overtime or we lost it in penalty shots, But but we still got a point. Why? That's what question because the flu keenness of the overtime, the flu Penis of the shootout that you're saying you guys were on par and instead of just ending it with bull for you with one pointers to choose him, we're gonna We're gonna play a fluky ending part that's going to be entertaining, and then we're going to give you one point for participating into the overtime period and a box lunches. Well afterwards. I mean, like, I just think it's silly. I know. I know it's not new. Like I I actually sent Pat Boyle. You know, my my my hockey expert. Listen, I know you're our resident. You know, man between the boards. I get that, but I wouldn't. We have oil you are so I went to Pappa for the real. I said Pat. Why is that This is an acceptable form of scoring in a professional sport. And he gave what it pat say. He says. I'm not. The first person asked that question to bring up that thing, But they created interest because the points you keep more people alive, going into the postseason and other things like that. I just think it from a general zoom out of perspective. As a casual fan. It just seems really weird to me, that's all. How does how does the blue line black feel about this? How does Puck dollar feel about this? The one in point dollar plucked all I didn't hear what you said. Well, you know, Listen, It's a participation deal. I'm with water and stupid. You like you were there. You were there, so you collect the point You lost. Like how? How soft is this? Like? What are what are we doing here? You lost I'm with you. Yeah. You were fighting back to our way you so we waiting back? It was like, how do you jump to that conclusion? You're telling me you know, you said soft. It is with that soft and I said So. Do you want fighting back? Why do we have to coddle you lost? You don't get a point for that. I'm with you, like 60 minutes of good hockey. Okay, way. Now we're gonna play the flute, Keep hockey part of the game and just forgetting here. You're both getting a point. We'll fit to keep the change..

Yeah, He got hit nut the head with a brick like three times in a row. Yeah, I was like I was shocked. I came in because you know, my my wife is always give me like crap about like for wrestling because I watch watch that with my son, and she's always like, Give me some about like, you know, it's a violent was like, what do you guys watching? It's so fun to the TV. That's like that's worse than a steel chair. Good God almighty. He's been broken in half. Um, so that that was just funny to me when I saw that training, going to get right back to your calls, and just a second, But I also wanted to say something about what Marco Said in the the update. You know, he was given some of the scores from the MBA LeBron James. Everybody knows there's the LeBron James mention for the show what I think of him, and he's probably the M V P favorite in year, 18. Which is just absurd. I don't know if anybody saw with Steph Curry Did last night. Uh, you know, hitting these these crazy shots that step back trouble between the legs mixer kind of stuff against Paul George 38 points as they came back against the Clippers. And you It was not that long ago, people were wondering. Can Steph Curry carry a team? It's It's just so weird like I When you're talking about these guys and their greatness, you know, LeBron was held to such a absurd standard, and it was. It's ridiculous. The stuff that LeBron has gone through. You know where people are questioning if he's a good parent, because he's in the layup line, and like just the stuff that comes out of Talk show host mouth talking Heads mouth. There's one guy in particular has made millions of dollars. Just saying absurd things about LeBron James. Well, you know, those things have created like a a standard that that some people Want to uphold? Because I've seen you know when I said you can't really question steps. Greatness people go well, you know what about the standard LeBron was held to and I get it because There was a point in time where some people were saying stuff was on LeBron's level. So therefore LeBron fans hear that and they go well. He needs to be held to the same account as LeBron. Then why isn't you know he getting the same treatment as LeBron and To me. I get that. But it's silly. If you know that the way one guy was treated, and that standard is absurd that you would then apply it like because Steph Curry got slandered or criticized to a point that Yeah, it wasn't what LeBron has gone through. But it was ridiculous by any rational measure and therefore You know, because we just because something's been done doesn't mean we should continue doing it. If we know it's already, um, wildly stupid. And Curry. You know, his game is just stupid. This guy's one of the all time great players. You know, There are three guys playing in the NBA right now that Luca might get their Jonah's might get there. Some other guys might get there. But there are three guys playing in the NBA right now, who are Bonified cemented all time? Special legends like top 15 kind of players. LeBron James, number one in my mind, Steph Curry. Who were you talking all time point guards. Magic Johnson is the greatest all time point guard Steph Curry Peak value. Are you taking any point guard over Steph Curry when the guy changed the game, and Kevin Durant, the 7 ft. Dude can score from anywhere on the floor. You know when you're talking about the the You know, history of the game. There are three guys currently playing who are going to be mentioned next to anybody. By the time it's all done, or, you know, next to the legends, the guys that you hold up, so I just recommend You know, you get a chance to Tomo watching appreciate those three guys. You should do it while they're still playing 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. We were talking about the Shawn Watson. Of course, his situation with the Texans. Let's go to Terry in Knoxville. Terry, you're up next here on the Robin Lundberg Show on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Terry? What up? What up? So what's good man? Yeah. You made some comments for one You talk about sound, Watson, that sure I'm so don't be showing the way you guys are. But I mean, you guys turned toe put people in the hall of Fame at the couple of years anyway. So, uh, just want to talk about things I said. Instead of like making like the media monolith and you guys, let's just address what is there Some? I said that you would like toe pick again. E don't. Yeah, I don't see you sound watching has been You saying that there's nobody you would trade form? Well, it's not. It's not about that. Because we have a look at your system that you will hear. What system do you type of run. If you don't have the alignment or the receivers, you have a look at this system that you in any way to say whether you would trade with Charlotte Watson. I'm not saying to Sean watching this bad. Listen. I'm a bear stand. So you know my quarterback? Yes. Okay, let's do a little exercise. I'm gonna leave you on the line for saying, okay. If you're forgetting, forgetting what you would have to trade to get him and the fact that I doubt he gets traded. But if you're the Chicago Bears, and you had a chance to trade for him, would you trade for him? Listen Maybe yes or no? At the Chicago Bears say I would trade for almost anybody. Okay? You're right. But you're bears. Yes, if you were, If you were the Minnesota Vikings, that you had a chance to trade for him, would you? Yes, because I don't trust if you if you're the Detroit Lions with you, and you had a chance to trade for him, would you? I don't like Stepford. All right. So if you are the Carolina Panthers, and you had a chance to trade for him, would you Carolina Panthers. Him. Bridgewater's Let me see it. I think you think Bridgewater's better than the song Watson. I'm not gonna say better. I'm not gonna say the word better. He's just a good people around him. But, uh, around Prince looking what Bridgewater's dead when he was with New Orleans. What did he do any minute? Well, that's a dude. That's a bridge water too far. You just went a bridge water too far. It any Bridgewater is, uh, average. At best. He? First of all average at best. Yeah..
"joe pesci" Discussed on 990 The Answer
"Could read his work and follow him on Twitter and parlor and Um do you think that the electoral college challenges that Josh Holly, Ted Cruz and others raised? Are those legitimate or not? What's interesting to me is because perfectly with your ears just just finished, Um Tom Cotton and Rand Paul interestingly, last night Came out with a pretty vociferous opposition to it, which I found interesting Rand. Paul particularly said that they found it completely out of line. Well, I don't think it's out of line. I don't think it's uh I think it's a opportunity to make you objection, understanding what you going to do, which is making points? Bring up the problems which exists. I saw them myself, and they have to be talked about. I think we're never gonna work. This nonsense about a pence is going to make is going to go in and leave a magic wand and suddenly you know the election's going to swear. You know, I don't know if I the state of what? That's just stupid. It's never gonna happen. It can't happen. First of all, it's just constitutionally wrong. It's never going to happen. You don't promise people something. It's never gonna happen. It's an Impala. Trump is going after his most loyal supporter Pence That's just a bad look, too. I don't think it was Trump's fault. But there was a small brawl in the The capital. Uh, which You know, would have been Almost amusing in some ways, if it wasn't for, you know some cop shooting the unarmed trespasses. Uh and and wasn't that different than what the Democrats have done? Dozens of times is what the Twitter Hey, Here's where they rush in the capital for Cavanaugh. Here's where they defenses where they didn't spend. Uh, It's the end, though we don't have to somehow be ashamed that they're not pointing out the truth that this election Suffered from outright fraud from Electoral, uh, unfair and unconstitutional election rules like the ones in Pennsylvania constitutional. It just is whether or not you could bring a challenge at this point doesn't change that. It's unconstitutional. It just changes whether they're going to hear it. And you know, like when people say to me you can't prove fraud in Pennsylvania. I say I'm not. I'm not even talking about fraud. I'm telling you, every vote cast in Pennsylvania was unconstitutional. Here's a pair of stone part Well, they didn't pass it water. All there was an unconstitutional of rule imposed. It wasn't generated by the Legislature is essentially generated by your Supreme Court. That is unconstitutional. That's that's one of the many things and I, You know, I keep hearing about how our system is so important and vital, which we know is if you wanna want our system, the function and all but you know, we're just gonna skip all the rules that we find inconvenience. It's just baloney. Kurt, You're an attorney, by trade as well. And the element of the argument that has always been most frustrating to me is when people say This is the one that I hear most from people. You know that I really respect that. I like a lot. But and Andy McCarthy, who I'm probably gonna keep my distance from for a while because Andy is just dirt strip and he's just gone full blown trump hatred. On, so he's probably not gonna be somebody anybody here wants to hear from for a while, So I'm just gonna stay away. But, um, and he was gonna hate on me too. You're gonna get all these colors. They're surrendering it. Shut up. Yeah, I It's again. Everybody's like whatever I buy guns, I don't I'm not here to talk anybody out of whatever. I'm going to say what I think all the time that people like that when I say what they want to hear, and then some people there people have occurred on a career. He's been on yourself. If you think I'll take right and some people who won't you don't believe in the crack. And when would told me through till my television set, But I like I think you want it when it comes to matters of the law in particular. I mean, in all things, really, but certainly when it comes to law, people like Andrew, see McCarthy in you. I believe are vastly superior in every way to me intellectually. I don't know I couldn't hold a candle to you. So I defer to you. Your respect for lawyers is highly misguided. Well, your understanding of what? I don't know the law. I don't know. So when, when Andy McCarthy says, you know, Chris, I respect that. You have a problem with the outcome of this election, But Donald Trump and his attorneys never once not one time proved in a court of law fraud. And and no judge heard him from even Trump appointed attorneys. Never never. Once no court heard it. I kept hearing that over and over and I was like, I have nothing to say to it. Ultimately, I don't know what to say. Huh? I mean, that's true, but there's more to it. First of all these cases weren't like heard like, you know. My cousin Vinny. There weren't like real trials, right? You know, you didn't even have Joe Pesci up there, you know, given the evidence Ah, lot of this stuff was defeated on procedural grounds while you were too long to bring it. Or you're the wrong people to bring it standing. Thea other thing is These cases are hard to prove. Okay? And you have a very short time to prove it. If I have a fraud case, I'm not going to trial for two or three years. Would be discovering that the deposition I'm gonna be able to, you know, investigate it. You know, I mean, Look how long? Ah, uh, freaking. Ah, What's his name? Um Muller investigated. You know Donald Trump on the Russians. Right? Years. Hey, had years to do it. You've got weeks to do it. What about the issue of the Constitution? So, like, you know, I've heard Livin eloquently artfully C s o. But to me like I don't know why That's When you can't say to me, no court, no court is heard the constitute It's well, I'm not even talking like set for August. I don't want to talk about fraud. But I don't know how you argue the point that the Pennsylvania Constitution says you have to put to a vote. What they did in changing the long and the way we vote here, and they didn't do it, And then subsequently we had an executive branch in a and the Supreme Court monkey around with an already unconstitutional laws. It is it's so blatantly obviously unconstitutional. So for anybody to criticize this and say, Well, no court has heard it. It's like that's factually true, but it doesn't make it any less unconstitutional. So I don't really love my argument, you know? Well, No, you're making the right argument that the whole thing But first of all personal, let's let's back up. The idea that three different courts in three different states are actively going to choose the winner of the election. Was never Likely Why? Because the courts just don't want to do that, for effect. You're coming with the practice. Leave aside the law, remember? You know the law's wrong all the time. People get the wall wrong all the time. 50% people walk out of the courtroom going in immediate That road, moron. He got totally well, but no, no. You first of all the courts almost never gonna do that. Second of all. They are always fall back on procedural stuff You don't have standing to do it. You're the one people bringing this suit or it's too late. You should have done it before hand. Of course, If they don't want to do it beforehand, they say, Well, you don't have standing because you have been injured. Yes, yes. York issue should have been heard as a practical matter. They don't want to hear it because it requires him to make decisions that they don't want to make. That's just how it is. And, you know, I tell people that their first wrenches that's wrong and I'm like, Well, welcome to America. Welcome to the world. It could still be. I mean, in my dream journal Chemical will be my parents freaking Get me and life is unfair. In theory, then Colonel Kurt Schlichter, it could still be that You know our court, some court or even the Supreme Court One day could hear Krysten Gall versus Pennsylvania challenges the constitutionality of act 77..
Truth vs Hollywood
"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this

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.
Jennifer Lopez shut out of the Oscars for 'Hustlers' role
"The joker earned eleven academy award nominations to lead all films but ABC's Jason Nathanson says there's a lot of focus on movies and people who work not nominated Jennifer Lopez not many thought you get an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress for her role in hustlers she's received a lot of awards season attention so far but she couldn't grab the big one this mission is Irishman co stars Al Pacino Joe Pesci got best Supporting Actor nominations but Robert deniro couldn't score a Best Actor
Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the

W. and this is it's it's what's leading the list is the Irishman with fourteen nominations which is of course marks were Stacey's latest almost Robert deniro Al Pacino Joe Pesci all getting nominations for acting others also once upon a time in Hollywood Quinn turned taking those look back at that what could happen in the sixties start with twelve nominations along with little women getting nine nominations nineteen seventeen which is Sam Mendes's the upcoming World War one epic I am a marriage story with eight Jo Jo rabbit the joker in Paris like each get seven so it's been spread around for the nominations it looks like there's a lot of great movies on Netflix yes speaking of spreading things around you got a couple of actors you're getting nominations both for movie and for television work which I think is interesting well yeah you got Laura Dern whose whose you guys having a bit of a resurgence in her career she's got both for big little lies a marriage story the critics choice nominations include both television and movies and another big win is is for streaming not only is that happening with of course big nominations for Netflix of Amazon it on the chart television side but the Irishman is is that a huge win for Netflix getting that many nominations I think there are almost thirty this twenty nine nominations for Netflix alone with you in the film categories did speaking of the Irishman so we mentioned Dinero Ficino Joe Pesci from that for Best Actor Pacino at and I guess Joe Pesci best Supporting Actor in it's a very different performers from him it's not the over the top crazy guy very restrained in and is that what it took to get him out of retirement well I think working with Martin Scorsese again was a big deal working with Robert De Niro yeah but it did give them the opportunity because they do a de aging process digitally so this movie is also getting visual effects awards but that gives a batch you chance to play a very different character which is I think what got him such traction this time around I think the biggest problem he's got is he a member of the channel might split the vote for fans of the Irish men and might end up going to somebody else yeah well merit story you know coming in with a lot of nominations and including I guess a screen plays as well so I I I I know I've heard that this is a real predictor for the Oscars how is that does that real yeah I mean it's nothing thirty six actually we got the golden globe nominations showing up later today which are also seen as somewhat of a projector the reason this one China other critics choice awards a lines a little bit more is because they don't split out drama versus comments on are you voted for the nominations do you also vote for the final

Netflix and Theater Owners Go To The Mattresses Over Scorsese's Irishman
"Welcome to the frame and Stephen cliff us filling in for John horn Martin Scorsese's highly awaited mob boss drama the Irishman hits theaters today well you know what is the situation going on now for big business and the government they're trying to pull us down you might be demonstrating the failure to show appreciation seems the the Netflix film stars Robert deniro Al Pacino and Joe Pesci but seeing the three and a half hour long at beginning theater will take some effort Scorsese had hoped for a wide release but after negotiations stalled between Netflix and movie theater owners the film will only be seen in eight theaters in New York and Los Angeles before heading to the streaming service on November twenty seventh Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming and she has the backstory on how things fell apart hi Nicole hi how are you Steve good good Nicole good you first please explain what theater owners were hoping for in terms of the Irishman's release I mean I think with what theater owners were hoping for was that Netflix was going to get in line and follow the rules that the traditional studios have with the theater chains and you know that is asking a lot for a company that doesn't necessarily believe in a theatrical window that is a subscriber first company that wants to make their subscribers happy by bringing them their content as soon as possible so what they wanted them to do was agreed to a seventy two day release which means that not necessarily the movie would play in theaters for seventy two days but that there would be an exclusivity period for that long before they would put it on their streaming service and that's really asking a lot for a company like Netflix I mean what ideally what Netflix like to see I mean no theatrical release at all no I mean I think Netflix is coming around to the idea of some limited theatrical release some of their consumers want to go see their movies on the big screen in a Martin scorcese gangster movie seems to fall into that category but they don't spend a lot on marketing so what happens in the traditional studio model is you have to put your movie into theaters you have to spend you know thirty five million dollars at least on a wide release to get people attention so they will know it's in theaters to go see it and then if you have to wait these seventy two to ninety days that are required by the theater chains when it does hit the next window whether that's a streaming platform or pay TV or whatever it is often times studios have to pay again to market the movie so it's really a lot of money but it also there is a requirement for Oscars is you have to have a movie in a theater for a week to be eligible that is part of the rules well after the Irishman start streaming on Netflix on November twenty seventh will there be the option for theater chains to give it a more wider release and and show it in theaters then for for those of us who may want to have that cinematic experience Netflix will keep it in theaters once it opens on their service as long as the chains want to keep it in it's just a limited number of theater chains that will play the movie the big giants AMC regal Cinemark those are the guys who are refusing to play by Netflix's rules which are much more truncated release windows and they're accustomed to Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming with Irishman showing now at the Belasco in New York and the Egyptian here in Los Angeles before expanding to a handful of others what can you tell us about why those specific theaters were selected as far as the Belasco that's a Broadway theater that shows Broadway plays this is actually one of the first times that a movie is going to be debuting in that theater and it's kind of terrific in a sense that like it's a big palace in there it has a thousand seats in it it makes you feel like you're in this you know old timey kind of environment there's not a lot of single screens left in New York City so they're kind of recreating the old time Hollywood feel on that screen as for the Egyptian in Los Angeles that theater is currently owned by American Cinematheque it's a his work location but Netflix is actually in the process of trying to buy that theater it's an independent movie house they want to own it so that on week nights they can put their movies in and have a vents and do whatever they want and then on the weekends American Cinematheque would still program their films as they see fit and they're kind of retrospectives and the repertory theatre that they are well fear owners were trying to make the case to Netflix that you know if you truncate the theatrical release you're gonna lose out how much money are are are we talking about potentially well they use the departed as their example which was Scorsese's two thousand six movie and that made three hundred million dollars worldwide now the studio doesn't get all three hundred million dollars they split that evenly with the theaters and then when you add in marketing costs it goes lower than that as well but there's still a you know a significant profit that could be made it's a could be because it's also a three and a half hour movie so how many people are going to be rushing to the theater to see it I mean the film has received rapturous reviews critics are loving it so that interest to see I think is high but there's also the risk factor that's involved too and I think Netflix has been less interested in getting involved in that business because it is so risky and it's much safer to put it on your service and then a month from now tell everybody how many people and watched it right there were similar release negotiations last year over the theatrical run of another major Netflix project and that's all fine so quite owns Roma can you remind us how that agreement check out and how it may or may not have influenced how this deal over the Irishman was hammered out it was the same kind of situation where the big chains refused to play at the smaller ones the landmarks the Alamo they played the movie and for some of those theater chains the movie did really well for them and it stayed in theaters for a long time well as streaming giants become more powerful in the big budget feature film industry will movie theaters become secondary venues you know for special films well it depends on who you're talking to I mean at this moment in time Disney who is you know launching their service in two weeks is a huge proponent of the theatrical window probably most of the movies that you went and saw most of Americans when Sonya last year were Disney movies whether they came from Pixar or Lucasfilm or Marvel those are the movies that make a ton of money at the box office and they stay in theaters for a very long time so Disney is a big fan of the of the theatrical window now how that changes we'll see there also putting a lot of money behind their Disney plus service so that needs to work out really well for them as well and who knows if product will be shifting to the service and hopes to you know bolster their subscriber numbers a lot of the streamers are backed by a traditional studios so they're gonna have to figure that out as it may go forward Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood hand streaming the call thanks is a is a pleasure thank you for your time I appreciate

'The Irishman' Is (Almost) Here
"Was a movie eight premiering a New York on Friday. You and I were in Los Angeles. We did not see this movie. We're going to see this movie very soon but it is without a doubt the movie news of the weekend and and then we called the Irishman in the Irish premiered to what I would describe as one hundred percent approval rating Hosanna. 's from on high what'd you make of the the reaction to Martin Scorsese's latest cinematic achievement excited. I mean you have to take the festival grain of salt. There is something something to this movie premiering at the New York Film Festival like on a Friday. It's it's a self selecting crowd self selecting group of people bowl but it looks like a lot of fun the all the images of Pacino Deniro and it's crazy up on the stage have an end at the party's he's having the time of their lives indicated to me that this is they're having a great time and that I think infuses the movie itself that it is something like it worked. You know we it's three hours. We didn't see it for a long time. We you know it could be a rehash of some things maybe but it seems like they will pay off on this one. It's not only three hours three hours and twenty minutes right okay. I was trying to be kind. It's based on the two thousand four memoir called. I heard you paint houses by Charles Brand and it stars Al Pacino and Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and it uses de aging technology. Ag To make these men seen younger and that has been a big talking point of the movie up until people saw the movie was clouded in a series of your butts. I think all leading to last Friday the Airbus include the technology they include does Robert Deniro still care about acting can not go over the top in a performance format. Does Mardi still have it can Joe Patchy still speak we haven't seen him speak publicly in many years and it seems like all all of these things were proven to be false alarms at best and I think a lot of people seem to think that this is the front runner for the best picture and There's something kind of amazing to me about that now. Obviously the we're taking a mountain of Salt Raider point given the festival atmosphere and being New York and everything but still this is a this is the disruption right and we have not seen yet and we're very much looking forward to seeing it but we have not seen it yet. You know I I will say when the Oscars aired. What Day was that in two thousand eighteen February twenty something February yes there was a commercial for the Irishman debuting in theaters and on that flex this fall and I think at that that moment you and I considered it to be the two thousand Nineteen Oscar Front runner for and these things do it is a little horse racing it goes back and forth and so the questions as you you just mentioned you know would it live up to that. Oscar Front runner status and I think the answer is yes. It's definitely yes. I wonder if it completely resets the expectation of the Oscars this year because I was assuming that it was absolutely going to be a player now what this means is there are almost certainly going to be due to net flicks movies nominated for best picture need even three net flicks movies so you've got the Irishman you've got marriage story and you've got the two popes which premiered telluride to to acclaim and that signals something significant changing and a lot of the column writing and the tweeting and the sort of not that not the day of reaction but the Saturday Sunday reaction action I think to the Irishman including the Columbine Owen Gleiberman that from variety who reflected on I think a lot of the anxiety that Roma produced last year about the idea of a streaming streaming service releasing what may be considered by many people to be the best movie of the year with that means for moviemaking what that means for the future of the Oscars but the Irishman is kind of a mega sized version of that question or problem or whatever you WANNA call it. You could make the case that it's nothing that that this is a completely overstated situation. I wrote about Roma in that context last year and I think the question here is more like this is a one hundred sixty million dollar movie. No studio other than Netflix is going to pay for this movie. It's the kind of movie that I think. Actually we could do pretty good business. If you put in a movie theaters got great reviews. That's got a lot of brand. Names is a gangster movie could it couldn't. I don't know if it's GONNA be a five hundred dollar five hundred million dollar movie but it could be a hundred million dollar movie and so with that the fact that we're never really going to know that because even though it's going into theaters is not going to the big theater chains. I think we do have three or four months. It's now of Netflixing Zaidi to to to detangle with. Yes for sure I mean I don't want to downplay the narrative of that in last year's Oscars and in every conversation that anyone has about the movie industry right now you know I think ultimately people in vote for Roma because it was a two and a half hour foreign film and they felt like values were being shoved down their throat and they just wanted to vote for it. The the familiar feel good like Virtue Signal Inc.. Except Not Green Book. I think those voters will not think twice about voting for the Irishman instead of something else. I don't think Netflix will come into the equation that way for them. I just I kind of think the position that the Irishman has in this in this Oscar Season Zain will be less about streaming platforms and more about a gen values and it's like I said it's like can you Oscar. Bait and a lot of ways is an interesting thing. I could sense that last year at some point. Alfonzo Koran just got sick of having to answer questions about Netflix that after a while and he was in a very similar situation. I don't think that there was necessarily a company that would have paid as much money for his film. Netflix did to distribute at even though they didn't originally only finance the movie and I wonder if Scorsese at some point now he's probably not going to do a ton of press because he's Martin Scorsese and doesn't have to but I wonder if at some point he's he's just kind of like enough. The movie is the movie yeah. Let's just think about it that way but for for our purposes we do kind of have to we have to tangle with it in three nominees unease from that studio would be it'd be a fascinating test of the academy because marriage stories definitely one of the best movies. I've seen this year and it fit checks a lot of boxes for for the kinds of movies that Oscar likes if not best picture at least every category nomination wise and the Irishman is right down the middle new Oscar Bait so and old Oscar Bait. I mean I think that's the I it's kind of the exception in so many ways because it is on Fox because Scorsese and De Niro and Pacino and PECI. It's it is all of the old things there. I mean there's just you know I was thinking about. How excited my dad's? GonNa be just to see the Irishman and they're just his dad incor- yeah but it is also a cinematic triumph apparently so anybody who actually cares about movies we'll all be interested and they are doing theaters and that's like ages kind of four quadrant for lack of a better word so it seems like elastic section as opposed to like the future of movies. If that makes any
