You're you're being real cautious in staying home to and and listen to all of our adult beverage podcast because there's a bunch that we've already. We've already sixteen of them. I think are already in the fan. We've done here. Which is that last one. Sixteen I think so. Yeah so this is number seventeen and it is Joe Joe. Rabbit Georgia'll Dhabi. Let's see in the beginning. Let's just go right to the start. Patrick what did you think about the beginning of the from the very beginning where. He's getting all psyched. Up to be a Hitler youth the whole thing I thought that was just hysterical of it was a great opening and you get to beat his imaginary friend which is Nice Hitler I look I I had I I'll notre straw away so away I thought it was an amazing opening a very funny. It's a strange way to be because you start going. This is funny then. Some stuff happens later where you're like. Oh single or several tiers subs. That got me crying uncontrollably. I like I like the way. This started off as kind of carefree and loose and and fun. And then boom you get nailed with this impact Which is it's. It's neat the way he did this film. I'm one of the things that he worked on this film for fifteen years and actually I think he'd be the course at the Sundance Institute Which I've done in is a great course for a about different types of things screenwriting all kinds of different courses there but It's a phenomenal Workshops that they put on and but you know think about this for fifteen years to get this thing made and you know and then you see what's on the screen and I thought I honestly you know. I didn't know what to expanding me Patrick. I went to see at one on the second run We didn't see it on the first day we went went to see an end it. I was blown away. I mean right from the beginning I just. I thought this was amazing. Like what he did and I've always liked to style but I thought he just nailed this one and I don't know what else to say it I I. I'm sorry. Fifteen years to make was it. Nobody wanted to pick it. Up was just getting the script right. I think you know he had a script and it. Just you know it wasn't in a place for someone to look at and and you know. Think about it if it's a hard sell. Yeah you're hey we're gonNA make a movie and it's going to be about Nazis you know and it's going to have an imaginary Hitler. Yeah and we're GONNA throw Hitler based on a book right. There isn't an imaginary Hitler in the book. Right now but I think that's I think it's great one of my questions. You guys did you guys when you're growing up as a kid. Did you have an an imaginary for him? And do some of you still have imaginary friend where you actually talked to one but I you know I had a good imagination like I. I think we all do. I mean that's the thing I mean. I used to make crazy games up that I would play. You know I mean I played basketball games. Were you know had I in a sense I was playing against? You know all my imaginary you know. Nba Players So you know we had something like that. So I guess I could relate a little bit to this situation and I mean you know the Hitler just he was so good at it You know just brought the realness of this film out and it was like you know A sounding board Anybody crab that part of it. It was like his sounding board of his conscious of what was happening. Yeah it's how he himself motivated and and keep good attitude of looking but then he has his accident and he's ugly ugly forever after that right at the Stop I mean he kind of like it was like his inner doubt your snoring as we got towards the end You know changed his opinions but he still saw like the other side of it threw it off right which is really strange right. I mean we think about you. Know the Hitler in this Wasn't like a super bad villain But what I think it did was it gave clout to the whole situation of how bad the situation was and not taking Taking anything away from this film but to also look at historical what has happened and I think that's a good thing about it like at. I've heard a lot of people. Go well you know. I think it's bad you're making fun of you know the. I don't think that was the situation. I think this is to make us look at. Hey you know this is what happened is actually reality and less. Let's you know let's make fun of it but not in a way that's bad and I think that's what he what he did with this film. Yes so that's the end of the great. Hey we just want to make sure your rate review and subscribe. You brought up the beginning so I actually was kind of the opposite of you. Has It kind of took until the end to really appreciate beginning more like I thought it was funny but then to actually say like as it kind of sunk in more like this could literally have been a kid in Germany? Like the things that they're putting in his head and and making him think. This was the right way of living than once. I come back to the beginning. I was kind of all fell in place for me. I think I thought it was great. The use of the you know the old footage and And the music. The way they tied the music in in the beginning And then him him running through when Joe Joe's running through the whole you know the streets in Hilo. Hi Ed la you know. I just thought you know I could see that happening. So I'm a dog could hear you believe at two so Yeah I mean it. Just was fun on that side. And and I you know the thing about this. Is it breaks down the barrier of the innocent on film you know and you and you really big into that side of it. Is there one character that you resonated wipe throughout your Gate Gorky? Yeah I love him. He's my favorite. I square heat. Is Nick Frost as a child? Totally totally yellow just kept looking at him is his last name. Frost is at Boston duplicate himself. Is it a close? Well good I have never had one of those old woman moments where I wanted to walk up and squeeze this guy's little cheeks. He's so cute in it like you're so cute. I just wanted to get in there with him. You know. Every time he was on screen I was laughing. My ass off and I mean he was the sweetest little Nazi youth right right and it was just this little mannerisms along with his. You know his His dialogue that he had was just phenomenal. So were you there when When he ran out and like all the explosions happened and then you he finds a Mike few minutes later and he's alive. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. You're coming in with a carefree mannerisms side. Now you could be with you. Ju- girlfriend attitude throughout the whole thing. He he's only in very few scenes and yet I was like I just want to see more of him. I WANNA see him but only steals the show he does he does and I mean you know. What can you say about the the lead actor in this? I mean he just is phenomenal Ikea. What nate knows how to cast? If you go back up I just watched boy actually for the first time. I haven't seen that recur so ago. I think it was on something like a Voodoo or something or another for free so I had the chance to watch that really good. I love hunt for the wilder people. What we do you. He's he's his casting is so amazing. Kudos to Taika well and affairs. He's really good with a kid actors. I mean he brings most m He finds he's got this sort of you know unique. Characteristic that again. He's like a kid he really is back like I mean. I don't know if anybody listened to. I listened to the DVD with him and In its directors talking version. And he you know he basically makes phone calls it the whole time. Terry commentary was because I don't want to really say it was commentary. It was more like him on the phone with people talking through the whole thing Wife was like I just WanNa hearing talk about why this was made and all this but and honestly I did too but I was laughing because it was just him cutting up and you could see that was how he was throughout. You know the whole production probably and but yet you know. He's he's amazing director. I mean really. I've not seen boy but all the other films have just been outstanding. Yeah boy is not as amazing as like hunt for the wilder people is pretty good. Yeah that's really But boy is also one of his first features so he keeps improving. Smoke may give us some really good advice. Be The habit. The humble bunny can out with all of his enemies. He's brave and sneaky and strong. The y'all talking nobody to delight Captain K Love Captain. K- Arkansas Yeah. Yeah Love Sam Rockwell. Anyway he's rate. There's nothing that I really cannot think of film that he's been in that. I didn't enjoy the remake of poltergeist that they did that. Sam Rockwell was the fall this right he was now but now I don't remember even being bad in it. There was nothing good about that movie. Well you can't. It's hard to make remake. Poultry is beautiful the first time so Change Is just not good but usually when SAM walk Walk well I'll allow you know three billboards and moon and he's galaxy. Quest Galaxy says one of my favorites. He's a fantastic actor and have you seen that by saying that the way way way back her. What's it about It's about some. It's about amusement park like a waterslide. Basically but it's a kid is historic coming of age story. Which is kind of what this film is. Here's a coming of age story. You know it's It's Kinda to me IT'S A. It's like a love story coming of age story for a young boy. Yeah I mean we kinda falls in love with the girl in the in the closet. You know assess. Yeah so that dynamic. Whoa how did you? What did you guys think about the dynamic between JOE JOE AND ELSA? I thought it was funny. Just how how it started when he was trying to be all tough But then to figure out there like neither of them could tell on each other. was was pretty cool. It was funny how that played out. Yeah and then. The negotiations start my favorite. The bus touching the letters from her boyfriend that he was writing which He's how hurt she was after the first one to tell you there was a second letter and it's just so sweet such a sweet moment in and that's right at first leg he. He's feels bad about hurting her feelings immediately. Even though she's a Jew so an oath to I laughed so hard hits his little mannerisms he just so priceless and it was fun to watch him kind of develop though this kind of love for her you know throughout your kind of watching it and I said you know his. I really liked the first same when they find each other. And he's crawling through the room. He finds it gets a little knife and he gets into the room and then all of a sudden he sees this monstrous foot. I mean that's the biggest foot I've ever seen on a little girl but And then you know he has this fear and then of course the little fingers of of coming around the corner like Alyssa's GonNa turn into like a horror flick. Yeah she has long Skinny Weird Vang. You're coming down the steps. She's moving her fingers to as like she's walking down which is definitely you know the director one hundred percent like do this because you could tell that was so much like him and his personality you know. It was really fun to watch stat. And then that scene where he tries to run for the door with I thought was amazing. I think that's seen as really impactful was so well done And then of course she pulls in life Did you think what why did when you first saw? What did you think it was going to happen in that situation? I mean we. Obviously you guys didn't watch the same film idea. I didn't think she was really GonNa hurt him. Yeah but did you think anyway? What did you think was going to happen? I mean just put this back in the situation. The time he gets out you know is he going to be. You know tell everybody is you think about she can tell that's his first reaction like that's what he wants to do. He wants to run out the door and like tell everyone he doesn't even think about the consequences I she has to like grabbing before it against the door because he feels like that's what he's supposed to do he's been through. He's trained to do yes. I'm training didn't really work kit. Blow up with a grenade. Come on. Let's go speaking of blowing himself up with a grenade What did you think about that? That scene where you know. He's running through and making well. Let's go I guess even before that you know. Let's go to the where he snaps the neck of the rabbit. How did you guys? How did it make you feel during that? Jerk Nazi Jerick Nazi snap in the rabbits. Not Yeah it was horrible too cute little rabbit and yeah and the thing that he says he's trying to get him to run away like rubber like something as he's kind of scoot them away and then the guy just jerks him up and does it. You could just see the innocence like right away. Yeah Yeah and the rabbit wouldn't go anywhere. He just sat there right so frustrating. I think Taika doesn't want you to forget that Nazis are bad throughout the movie. Our Commander K camping. Thank Captain K. You really by the end are in love with this guy. I don't like his boyfriend a little bit. 'cause yeah theon. Fan Range. He has no scrotum game. Throw Clinton Dorf right I mean. Isn't John Listen? Dr Clinton Fencing. Dorf almost funny like he had all these minions around him. You know and You know a rebel Wilson. was knows her typical feel and energy. Did you care for her character at all for who rebel Well she's funny House he was. I think there was nothing but you don't You don't I don't know if you particularly embrace her because she she's very Nazi. Find the stuff that comes out of her mouth. Did you know and I mean also You know you think about this if this was you still have to go back to the historical you know but it's a satire on on what happened. Was there anything they just when you're watching it? You just did not expect to happen in this film. I didn't expect him to blow himself up with a grenade was like we lost our main character immediately. What's going on? I don't know if we're jumping to too far ahead. But I did not expect to see that happened to his mom either. Oh my gosh. That was horrifying. Yeah You know they. They never showed her face. Like yeah you know the thing about that scene. I thought they did a great job of setting her shoes. You know and the scene and then when you you know the butterfly and that's one of the questions I have you guys you know th th as we saw the butterfly. We saw it a couple of times so it wants with. He was with Elsa in the butterflies in the stomach and then we saw this butterflies Following when he's in the kind of the park area and then all of a sudden we see the sh- he turns and sees the MOMS shoe hanging but the body attached You know that same was like holy cow. This know is is brilliant Heard one of the things I thought it was that he originally wanted to kill. Have the boy be. The one was killed when his early early works on this and it changed and I think that was a marvellous change of having the mom because now than you really feel a new sympathize with Gioja because how else can you not? He lost his mom. Yeah and he's learning that Nazis. A real bad. Yeah and what kind of stood out to me was the ruthlessness of it that I think they had just been at the house going through stuff. Did they know at that point that his mom was dead? Because they just like. Oh she's in town but nobody ever came to tell him like he was asked him where she was. Do you know where they know at that. Point that she was dead. That's a that's a good. I mean you know I'd never. I didn't think about that when we were. I was watching the film. But you know when you look back on. It is a possibility that that could have been the case and as cool things about it is to you know. Look at it when you watch it again. To see wasn't any more clues at set that off because had he not been walking around that day he might not have ever founder and then would he have just been sitting home like wondering what happened to it because no one ever came to say. You know your mother's dead right right. Yeah I mean there's a war going on yeah so I mean it was one of those moments. That sort of makes you go. Wow vesta looking fetching as your should. It's because of you. My son can't walk properly and his a messed up. Face still just took. Yeah so you are going to look after him while. I'm at work mixture. Here's a job. Infused included got it. Really good guys. Is Your Kid told you about remember. He's still the hung. Canadian blew himself up and as a result. I got demoted for negligence. Now I get to work in office for all these wonderful kids so Joe Joe. I'm sure we can figure out something for you to ideas. Yeah guys okay. So we need somebody to walk the clones. You will be guys becoming motionlessly involved in the story. Yeah for me. It was the scene when they were arguing at dinner and then she puts on her face to make it look like his dad. I mean they have a little sweet moment at the end of it that that's kind of what got me in there. How about you Patrick? I think I was all like I was invested from as soon as he has an imaginary friend. That's Hitler who's advising him and then he does what he's running down the street con. High High Island. I I just like a love it. I love it already and you see kind. Part of you feels bad because this little kid does not understand the severity of the Third Reich right at the same time. It's funny so entitled. Ytd's good at that where he can make you laugh and then stop you in your tracks and make you cry and then get you laugh and again a few minutes later. So yeah it's amazing. It's an amazing talent to have. It is better so when was the first time that you were really like second on the on the phone. I think for me. It's the part where he is reading the first letter from Nathan. And then he sees it upsets her any immediately goes and writes the next letter. Like that's like Oh okay. You really do care about her. You really do know that. She's she's a person she's not. Just this monster. Ju Ju I I was really to me. It was as soon as I saw the hit. Hitler situation at I thought that right there caught me and it kind of reminded me a lot. I don't know if you guys have you ever seen the great dictator With Charlie Chaplin was I think seeing the monologue on forty yeah You know it kind of reminded me of like that sort of Satirical feel and at that point I was like I'm really interested in what you do. And you know whether you blow it and it's terrible or is it. Is it really great? You know and I think he he actually mailed it was real of comical like his characters that he you know we're always around the Hogan heroes characters almost You know I mean you felt like that's what you were watching. You know when you looked at you know a captain k. Yeah and rebel Wilson. Yeah wasn't that didn't it reminds me a bit of it and and so I thought he like pulled interesting little pieces and put them into the story but then he put this amazing story underneath it that just that takes it to the next level special. I just keep telling me that. Sell to everyone anyway. So stupid idea. You're stupid the strongest thing in the world. I think you find that muscle. It's the strongest thing in the world. Follow closely by dynamite and then muscles sites. I wouldn't even know to resort. Press fries on gun show you know. Feel it it's a pain my also that's in your tummy butterflies. Yuck Yuck come on Shit. Let's move on if you had to pick one character out of all of them. You know I know. We talked about earlier but one character that you'd like to see another completely developed out script. Which one would it be. I WANNA see your g and Gioja together in something else with a buddy comedy extensively super fungus tucker and Dale. I'd like to sue them. Fight Sambas yes yes and then Phi robots. That's on point right so I thought once one thing that was always interesting to me as watching. It was how many times he got offered. Cigarettes from Hitler kept forgetting he kept forgetting that he was like ten years old and all smoke but but I thought that was like really funny and just sort of a you know kind of in his imagination thinks he's older and you know and it's it. He plays so well in this. The story is so cute and ev- and every time I watch this I feel like it gets better Yeah it did when I watched it. I thought this was a lot like wes Anderson and had some a lot of the symmetric Aspects that Wes Anderson does very simple. You know kind of isolated very bright and very bright colors. You know which was part of you know. They shot this With animals Lenses but they shouted a four three ratio. So this too. That's taken an image in their crunch in it down but I thought it was beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous shot with Alexa. And you know the the look on. It was just really really solid. I think that was one of the other things attack this film together at at all the pieces you know you had a good script you had great. Cinematography had amazing acting And it was fine. He knows so. What more can you ask for film and when you it kind of made me think when you brought up the cigarettes must have been a fun character to play this Hitler character. Because you're not you're not Hitler. You're not a parody version of Hitler. You'RE A kid's imagination of Hitler. That's I bet it must have been fun right. Yeah pretty much anything goes. There's all contact lenses in. Did you notice that right off the bat I was like that's right? His is would make sense did they. How did they have contacts? Then why don't think we're supposed to know that they were contact. Go now I will say. This is the second movie That I love that has closed out with David. Bowie's heroes it. Is this one way I did. It was in German this time but the other one was Perks of being off lower right and it ends. We are infinite and then Boston to hear us. Yeah yeah the music in this really pushed pushed it through two great great choices. A music in That Beatles the German Beatles version of I WANNA hold your hand. Tastic is awesome one of the things that I was thinking. Throughout of it was was captain. K Good or bad guys thank relatively speaking for a Nazi. He was good. Yeah I think it goes through a change. I think the change happens when You know he asked for the passport and he at that point you realize that he you know all of a sudden he's not so bad and he's he's a nice gentleman like he's trying to protect the family and he you know looking after him so I think that's the point where it starts to flip for me on him. You know other before that. He's kind of he's he's not he's a hundred percent. Nazi even though he's got this song of love right and he knows the Nazis are against that. So He's trying to you know tone that down so so he might be on your side right now because he's announced off. Yeah kindred between the gays in the persecuted Jews and they don't beach over the head. I don't think with him now. But every time you see a theon your life Dan the standoff scene where the two of them are face to face kind of comfortable and say at the the pink triangles on their uniforms. Do Remember that was that all the way through now. I think it was at the end. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah well at the make their own. Yeah when he designs his own Yeah they didn't have them throughout the whole that'd be like Yeah I love. I love that same whereas you know he's got the Alan around his eyes. And and you know fabulous. Oh so so amazing and then and then you roll out of that for a second and it gets you know funny and then you come back and you know joe gets brought to the firing line. Basically where the Captain K How did you guys feel when that was happening? Did you think that judge was going to get killed or did what was going to happen? You definitely are afraid for him at that point because he's been sucked back in like an associated with the Nazis and he's got the jacket on and it doesn't look for Joe Joe at that point. I didn't think he was going to get killed the worried but I thought it was a neat way of like getting them out of there by standing him up. He's having this whole talk. And then he just pops the jacket off of him and spits on him and throws him out a perfect. And then you know you you at this point you've already started to care for for the the captain and a K and his is wonderful antics So that's a cool. Feel of the film you know did it. Seem like kind of like kept. Gioja almost changed. Captain Ken a little bit too because he did seem to soften up after Joe Joe blew himself up like you could see every time Georgia came around. He was just like a little bit easier on them. Yeah like like the turned him. You're a misfit. Now like the rest of us well plus. He was taken off of that training. Camp Duty Right the office Joe Joe's fault and wasn't even manage. Oj about that Could you be mad at a ten year? Old Sweet judge out so cute. He's so cute. So rebel just blew up Yeah it was pretty funny. I just kept waiting to see her fly or something. You know shoes fly and some of them you know but that was. It is definitely a movie about shoes. Yeah Yeah someone had airtight fuse. Some fetishes foot fetishism brand this deficit kill this movie for me. Can't finish moving across. Yeah healthy no feet. How would you know if you sold one? They could look just like us at feel its head forms spro in Brussels sprouts. Yeah I forgot about the Brussels sprouts. Bits imagine catching on giving it to Hitler. That'd be a surefire way to get his personal got. Its all time of your best friend. I guess I'm justification affect kids. Both have you guys gone out and bought your Yoohoo. Juba Ket traded you do right good ways of killing but the book was very interesting. How it kind of plays into the story you know. What was your thoughts your seen it and else's there and she's like she says pay. I wrote it. You know. This is my thoughts. How did you feel about that? Was a good way to save herself. yeah that was very quick thinking but I on the other side of it I was like man I feel bad for job. Because he's just been copyrighted all of his work So I felt bad for him but I also felt that that was a way of saving her. Yeah Yeah for sure for sure for sure do you. Do you think this was to Nazi driven on the aspects? Do you think they were just too much of that thrown into this or do you think it was a good amount and everything kinda played out? I thought it was. Yeah definitely Thurgood. get to see how how silly some of the Nazi protocol was with the High Hitler. Seen with like thirty eight times I was cool. And what did you think of his character mean? How did you think of his character? Did you think he was a Dick? Do you think he was He was creepy wasn't he? He was great at being super creepy and just looming over everyone. I mean he's an enormous guy anyway but just the sheer lake presence of him. Plus I read. He stood on a box. I was GONNA say what's being taller than Sam Rockwell. Yeah I was a lot taller. I thought that was really funny because I was like. Oh my God they just made me Mike six inches. I'm sure he was on an apple box. You know at least six inches taller but it does create it really worked really well with the story because then you got this lurch of subtler cheat the funny thing is. I just watched the good boys the night before. That little tween comedy. Sex Comedy thing and Stephen Merchant is in that also playing very creepy character. So run out and see the good boys. Philip Creepy Stephen Merchant. He's only like two scenes little bit creepy Stephen Little. Bit Creepy Semen worship. Then Watch Logan where. He's little less creepy but still creepy as a creepy mutate. After that scene no was would I guess I didn't realize it still moves over? How lucky they were that. That wasn't like early in the war. Where like the war ended so soon after she got discovered that worked out. Okay Yeah that was great. I mean and I think that that was a fun ending. You know the whole and this just this got into that part of it. What do you think about you know? Joe Joe basically lying to her at the end there That the war was that was tough because one goal is freedom and like. That's the thing that he's going to deny her to though like you could see I mean. Obviously he was just being selfish because he wanted her the living there but but there were. There was a sweetness to it. Yeah Yeah like keep it from her I mean he was he figured out a way to make it right right right and he paid to like just the look on his face and like how he couple down a little bit like it was perfect. Yeah yeah I thought that was a and then you know as we go out to the ending the you know 'cause I mean let's talk about it you know it's the it's Patrick was showing us. It's the pop of the day you can see it. He's snapping his fingers. The dance because people who are free dance right that's right and and she said you know that was the thing she said earlier in the film You know it was about freedom if she had. What was the one thing she wanted to do in that would be you know? Freedom Dance Freedom to names and theme in this movie dancing and feet. Yeah it just played really well at the end and I thought it was just a nice. You know you know the wars come to an end. You know. Realize that. He's lied to her. But now then you break into this sort of like okay. I don't like what you did but I still like you still care for you And then the dance. Just you know you. Just get when the music cranks up you get into it and you start snapping your fingers with them so it was fun. When I saw with canty stood up in the theater started dancing. I burn head thing. We were the only two people at ten o'clock show. There were two other people down in front of US got it. Didn't see him are even have like therapy. I saw you. Everyone saw holy cow. I got to moves. Doesn't it but the reluctant like the little boy? Like starting with can't right but that was kind of weird Patrick ones at me. I don't know what it was about but one dollar bills were just flying. You know makes it rain money when you're talking about new digital? How far would you go? On the producers of James Bond Action sign born. Don't actually watching it too. So what's closing notes on Gioja? Rabbit what do you guys think about it any Any thoughts on this and you should see it and then see it again after that. Yes maybe maybe it. When we're time I tell you it really helps to watch in the second time because you pick up a lot the first time. I always just watch it. You know and enjoy and then the second time. Watch it again because there's a lot that you miss and I think the humor's funnier the second time than it was I can't wait to watch this guy. You know ten times and come back to and and say wow I can start quoting some lands out of it which is almost impossible for me. Sexy shoe easily. Yeah I think it was really well-made like all the way round shot beautifully great acting great store. I'm ready for his next film. I'm ready for his okay. What that is next door versus Hulk in another movie or another though or maybe or yeah which is a did a good job with the first one you know and now Ragnarok Masao. It had enough humor in it and and kept true to the story so I thought it was. He has a job at that kind of stuff. And and that's the kind of thing that probably pays for his films to judge rabbit definitely. I'm not sure what what he's saying. What I wanted to mention that if you WANNA see another comedic movie a hiding a Jew in the attic in Nazi Germany about that Patrick. Here's a short fill that Adam. Green directed called the diary of Anne Frankenstein. I think it's on youtube where he could see. If not there's a film called Chila Rama With a lot of recognizable faces but the diary Van. Frankenstein's one of the funniest short films I've ever seen because They make a Jewish Gholam like Frankenstein. So it's basically Frankenstein but all dressed up like almost like a Jewish way. Yes it's felt. Who's the tall skinny guy from Avatar Who was in dodgeball? Is the Jones. Now our dodgeball. The pirate. No no no. That's a friend. Alan Tutic right The guy who doesn't know who Steve The pirate is. That's me set on your Abbott. He wasn't the main character's avatar known is seen Avatar. But you. That's fucked up. That's you still more Joel. What does him even more? Joel David Moore yes. Yes that's what I'm talking about. He plays out. Basically like a Hitler type of Nazi character in it and he's speaking gibberish German in the movie. And you just start and as you watch it you start hearing things like you'd be like when back. Cpo these pop references at itself. Fucking funny you give it a shot on YouTube. You guys are probably hate it but you know what it. What other movies? You've been watching in quarantine other than Jewish Frankenstein there as an Oldie but a goody diary Frankenstein. I've been watching a lot of your indie fair movies. I watched American Satan Which is about a band. Malcolm McDowell and Sam. From game of thrones isn't it Sam It's an okay movie I saw Satanic Panic keeping with the Satan theme. Apparently I saw guns. Akimbo was probably my favorite with Daniel Radcliffe Daniel Radcliffe basically gets guns bolted to his hands and is put into this game where he has to fill the other person or be killed. It's just a lot of. It's good clean violent fun. I like that far. What HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING. We have been marathoning episodes of Night Court and Shits Creek and tiger king which is hard to watch at times. I don't know if we're GONNA finish that one but they we're halfway through better. Finish that one if I don't know we're out episode five. It's almost seven episodes isn't it? Yeah or did I stop watching it? Seven call it a day now.

You know way back and A A claude rains like old school. Yes to Oh I thought they did a really good job with it and had a unique tool twist and I think that's what made it a little better than I thought I thought it missed and some things but You know I. It was still. It was still good. You know it was very entertaining and then I watched Ford versus Ferrari again Seeing that so good. It's a great action packed film And it's just full of you know it's just it's got a lot of like a good acting good story good action all tied into one And then we kinda bench watched a season three of ozarks and watch that too.

#427 - iPhone SE 2: the low cost powerhouse!

"In print unlike most computers where you know hit a control key and a key sequence you just hit one button says print and it Prince and you can actually. Bill made it. So you can watch on the screen. The whole document gradually being printed and follow your progress. It's it's pretty nasty you cook. Se Thirty plus outcomes. And you're GonNa hear all week long. I'm your host earphone alleged. Today I once saw him dancing at a stevie wonder show and he's got moves. I've never seen and hope to never see again. The founder of Colt amac leander. Caney is here. We'll stevie wonder show. You know what I knew. You weren't Gonna. Remember that I'm GonNa tell the whole story. It's GonNa take fifteen minutes before I do that. Also with us some column allying dog faced Pony Soldier. But you know what I think is a heck of a nice guy the managing editor Kodak Lewis Wall. Sincere soldier tell me opponents pony soldier. You know the dog face Joe. It's like it's like a mythical Greek God you know I like a center. I think so. I don't think so. Opponent Salt Lake Dream. The guy is a machine. That's that's one of the best things I've ever heard. I'm going to be calling people that from now on. I'm going to miss you know leander. I don't WanNa tell the whole story but remember when we're at CBS. And they it was at the Monster Party and they had stevie wonder point. You don't remember this. Stevie wonder not refuse to dig what we saw Raphael CDC. I think that same nights. That was a different night but Yeah we saw Raphael which was great but then also we saw stevie wonder and they had somebody else but we weren't actually in the room with stevie wonder we didn't have that level of access. Oh they made us wait and the other because we were in the room with all the drinks which actually the room that you want to be in You don't remember this. I knew stood as I wrote this down. I was like there's no way he's going to remember this at all. That's about all I know. So hanging out with them What's his face I like his name was ended. Remember that's right. We did hang out any deck and everyone kept warning. Make sure you know. We're Andy Dick's. Hands are at all time because Andy hands like the wonder towards that one guy wasn't he was trying to get him to break them up and it was kind of strange and he was saying that he was doing that. Yeah that was That was weird nights And for those. That don't know like monster. You know that that company that makes like those really expensive. Hdmi cables and stuff like that. Like the Guy who owns the company is real eccentric. I I don't know his like I don't know what his disability is. He can't walk but he rides around. Segue with Gold Rims. And I think they're spinners like when he comes to a stop the locker rooms on the second what's what's his first name. I forget his last name but the monster. It's funny because they throw the best party to see. Yes and they have all these great musicians and stuff Noli Noli everyone clowns on monster because of the price of their accessories and what a ridiculous jammed is to pay like one hundred forty four dollars each day my cable but clearly someone's doing it because he's getting all the best artists to perform in his. Party's the party was the absolute best at US anyway. There's this story see. That's what exactly what I WANNA go into. What's that what day is it now now? It's Saturday Saturday because we started on Wednesday. So let's see here. We got lots of great stories. Talk about this. We're GONNA talk about the IPHONE. Se to apparently that's right around the corner in and it looks like it's going to be a pretty exciting little phone and we've been avoiding this. In fact Louis Yawn like four or five times as I was as I was pitching this story. We gotta talk about the Krona Virus. And how it's affecting apple. I swear this is going to be lot more interesting. That sounds. I've been avoiding the story for weeks because really. It just didn't really seem like something that we should talk about in the show. But it's kidding wild over there it like in. China. It's I keep saying it's it's becoming like Zombie apocalypse movie. You know like a World War Z. Level movie the Chinese infrastructure is being so rattled by the krona virus and apple in particular. Foxconn is having all these troubles and this could seriously affect product availability in the near future because apple may not be able to to make products. There's not going to be on there to make products which I know sounds like hyperbole but just wait. I'm going to tell you the story and we'll break it all down for you and look see here. There could be a big move by apple to go to. Amd chip which would be a dream. Come true for me personally because. Amd is just doing a magical stuff these days. So we'll we'll talk about that. Leander has a absolutely wonderful story that he's very excited. Talk to you guys about. It's about swimming playgrounds. Come into Mac. He's going to be delivering it in his most enthusiastic voice he. He's been talking about the story all week. We tell now. Wait Dude. We're not ready. We're not ready yet. You GotTa wait to the end of the show to tell us about swift playgrounds for those of you. That don't know leander. He's in swift. He's setting variables. He is making all sorts of hacks he's creating applications. That would blow. Your mind tells us about that. Let's see here before we diamond to our IPHONE. Se to talk. Let me say thank you to squarespace for supporting this episode. You've heard me talk about squarespace a thousand times.

Okay let's jump into this first story. Iphone se two or as some are calling it. The iphone nine Louis. That happened had what happened. The confusion over name. It's ECRIT mean we're going to go from we're GONNA go from eight to ten to eleven to nine calculator out and explain that one might need to use an abacus for that one. I'm not sure what's important even though we don't know for sure what the name is. Is that ample ample good? Shall we start over? I did said sewer. I think we need to. We just need to start over. Let's pretend like this whole thing just never happened. And let's just begin a new you said Flab late to which which I did say. Have you not heard that timber four flab late yeah? It's what people were were saying about. Samsung's note phones when they first came out because they were so comically large. They're clearly not a phone but they were too small to be a tablet. Hence the name the Flat Oh fablet not flab blitz flab little fat kid Yup hey take a look in the slack off. I thought you might like that Yes eight fablet. I always say I don't know why please understand me They'll let me take you off the tracks for all right we're GONNA D- derail this one. Okay Okay so. Apple is supposedly ramping up production on the new IPHONE. Se Too and the late latest. Twist on this. I mean we've been here about this for what seems like years now. But but supposedly they're going to sell this thing for three hundred ninety nine dollars at the same price as the original iphone. Se Way back in two thousand sixteen. This report comes from Fast Company. And you know of course. They're quoting like you know. One or two unnamed sources. So who knows but anyway this Low cost IPHONE Supposedly be called. Se to iphone se. Two or iphone nine again. No NO IDEA WHY. It would seems very confusing to me. But whether they're going to go back and call nine pat yourself to me. Well people always ask what happened to nine You know when when people ask me about iphones like what happened tonight. Yeah and they always ask me that. It's like the most common question I get. And what does it mean anyway? We we still special edition. I thought so I actually anyway So small and so the the good thing about this is it's GonNa basically be a reboot of the iphone se. To which I thought was a great phone would great idea and so the thing is so it would they would. Apple would rely on components that they've been using for years like the fingerprint reader. You know the touch. Id in a physical Home Button. Probably won't have face. Id which apple added in twenty seventeen with the iphone. Ten probably have a four point. Seven inch display bigger than the current iphone se which is actually the worst part about this rumor and would probably just reuse designed for the iphone eight. They're also saying that it'd probably use the eighth still can't talk. A thirteen ship. Found the iphone eleven. So it's basically the same blueprint right turbocharged old design which is pretty awesome. I mean the one thing that I think is a disappointment to people like the iphone. Se is the bigger size. Because that's the one thing that I run into people all the time. They have iphone. Se and they say I love this is I. Don't want a bigger phone all the time so he. I think those are like the power users I think for. Most people like most just regular people who don't follow apple or what they do. They want a larger screen and to buy a phone. That has the same the same power as the current models but some of the older technology like touch. Id which by the way touch. Id is still greats. I was I was looking at an iphone. Seven the other day because A friend of mine is upgrading. He wants me to sell his iphone. Seven I was using touch. Id Man Snappy feels good. I kinda miss having that little clicky buttons down there at the bottom so the proposition of being able to spend four hundred dollars four dollars for a brand new iphone. That's as fast as the current generation. Iphones but with some slightly older tech in certain areas. I think this is a cell. Like crazy crazy crazy the other the other big thing about this. Is You know supposedly play by apple to gain some ground in India and maybe even China where you know like in India. Maybe people you know buying a two hundred dollar android phone. So you know it's a giant market apple doesn't have very much Footprint there and this might be a kind of thing that would allow people to go ahead and get it They're saying you know this latest rumor thing saying that This this might be announced as as soon as March and the the sort of secret strategy not secret. But you know the smart thing about this. You sell three hundred nine phone. Suddenly you've got you know if you saw a whole bunch of them you've got a whole ton more people lining up to use apple services. Which is you know. That's what that's other making so making up for the excuse me the slowdown and smartphones so You want to sell services cellphones. Plus if you get the iphone Nine S E it saves you. What does that sixty dollars that you would? Otherwise be paying for that really wonderful apple TV plus subscription or. You have access to like. I think they're up to like them working overtime. I think they're up to seven shows now. Sh- you know that'll probably be a differentiating factor. You won't get that if you buy this phone. Oh I bet you they're gonNA give it to you. Just just just everybody please. Just in hopes that someone's going to go ahead and give them five bucks a month which yeah. I don't know I don't know about that. I mean that is cheap and I have Praised that before. But I'M A I've been on a Netflix kick and just comparing what you get with Netflix. To what you get with Apple TV kind of put some more context around the value proposition. I mean it's cheap but but comparatively to what you get it's like is this cheap for only an extra eight bucks. You could get way more than double the content. It'd probably be like I don't know twenty times more content to net flix thousand times. Yeah Netflix has so much. It's just unbelievable. It's I don't want to go on a tangent. There talked about this last two shows but they would me back in with a free trial and I was not expecting to be paying them after the travels over but they have got so much good content on there now and most of it is by them all the content that I'm watching now is made by them from watching the series lost in space. Which is that an old series. Have you guys heard of Watson? It's a reboot a couple years ago. I never got around to watch. And he's a good I actually I. I've been really liking it. I'm almost done with season one and at the end of every episode. I think Oh. I can't wait to dive into the next but you know what other show. I'm really missing. Can't wait to go watch is is see. I keep thinking about it. It was a great first season and I can't wait to see what they do with it. I can't wait to see actually I phone. Se To if they actually sell it for three ninety nine and you take that out over twenty four months. That's only sixteen dollars and sixty cents a month. So you subtracted Apple TV subscription. It's it's IT'S CHEAP. It's almost like apple. Tv subscriptions is. I mean it's Kim Kinda close to being more expensive than the phone itself. You know what you need to do. You need to be putting on a white jumpsuit and you need to be on stage pitch and what you just said at the next key now. I couldn't do that. That's the that's the pitch right there. I don't know that white janitors at that. Did you do in our slap channel during that thing I mean when he came up on stage somebody? Who's Oh it's like. Oh they're all doing Characters from Disney movies and for a moment like what okay well so which characters like wreck it. Ralph or something. What is it no choice? That's just living in Cupertino fully. Believe in it all right. Well look I'm about to work in one of the best transitions we've ever had in this show what we're talking about iphone. Se and you're saying it's going to be inexpensive. It's going to be powerful but you know what good luck ever getting your hands on one because I doubt apples ever going to actually build any of these. You know what you need. You know what you need to build the phone Louis Factory. You need a factor with the boys and that's one thing that apple doesn't have. They've got like they've got like one hundred fifty employees left and I don't know if they're going to be able to meet the demand of the the iphone se to slash night so back to this crow virus story again normally would never talk about this but this story is just getting crazy. It's like World War Z. Over there apple had to close down there to Foxconn factories in China right because of the corona virus. And for those of you that haven't been following the Krona Virus Story. It's like this extremely contagious flu. That it's is. It has a high mortality rates in an and it doesn't just kill people who are old. It's killing people who are young so it's really scary and Alina was just saying that he heard the The death rate for men was twice as high as it is at one for women as it is for women so so not only. Is this this virus deadly? But it's also sexist which makes numbers. Yes if they five hundred million here on twitter. They announced whole bunch of new cases. You know yesterday. He gets on a new cases where released having twenty thousand. Yesterday was two thousand with ninety seven deaths to why it's to fifteen thousand new cases with two hundred and forty five deaths see. They're definitely under reporting this because they don't want people to panic and they don't want to show that it's difficult for them to control this so I think that China like the Chinese officials are probably under reporting how bad I'd say because I love sending people home because there's not enough room in the hospital so the naive again tested no treated so. Yeah but it's like there's like government officials showing up at people's homes and like random rounding them up or like putting boards of their doors. They can't leash. Did you guys not see? Any of these videos. I did not going up over doors. It is unreal side comrade. Oh shut up there's There's the Chinese government they've They've created a back door in your phone and they'll be sending the officials to your house right when he has knocking windows. You're going to be going to the quote Unquote Hospital with the high fences and barbed wire on the inside so Let's see here. So Yeah Foxconn. They've recently tried reopening some their factories. They got one of their factories opened the one in Zang's how but only ten percent of their workforce came to work report. According to Roy Dias meanwhile the Chinese government has rejected Fox cons request to open its factory in southern China in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. Linda I don't know if you can answer this but isn't Shenzhen. They're they're they're big factory like that's the main place iphones are made. Isn't it well? That was where the original. Yeah the iphone. City was some other big plants now in in other districts but yeah that was that was where the original big folks complaint was. Okay so I just kept reading because it says right here Ming Chico Apple analysts says the Zang's Zahle Factory is the most critical iphone production site. So that's the one that they've just reopened with ten percent of their workforce that's there actually working and the Yeah the plant produces handsets including iphone eleven and the upcoming iphone. Se to slash nine. So they've lost ninety percent of their workers at their biggest factory. There are other other. Large factory is completely closed down. And they don't know when it's going to open so this could seriously majorly impact iphone availability in the upcoming months and availability of other tech products as well. I mean Foxconn makes all sorts of stuff for all different kinds of companies and it just seems like this krona virus is throwing the country into utter disarray right. Either you know the the The Mobile Congress was canceled today. That's over cancelled shocking. The world's biggest wireless industry show A huge huge deal cancelled the whole the whole thing. It's kind of scary isn't it? Normally this kind of stuff doesn't bother me but it seems to be so contagious and it has a high mortality rate and I kind of have been the. I've been watching it and just kind of keeping track of what's going on and wondering if I need to hole up in the command center with some face masks and long rifle no my my COSCO emergency food supply. It's good it's really scary. I mean these new numbers are not good at all. Yeah and you know that there. It's much worse than what they're actually reporting. You know that's stop. That's the other part of it. You're like yeah they say it's bad and I believe it is but it's probably not nearly as bad as it actually is and of course there are people that have virus. That just don't even know that they have it so or they don't report it because they don't want to be hauled away by the medical police. They're scared of what's going to happen so something to keep in mind in the near future. We might see a serious reduction in our iphone availability unless apple's able to move their production elsewhere. Which I know. They're trying to move to India. But you know how fast can you? How Agile can you actually be? When a mega factory is all of a sudden unable to produce your product I mean. Are you able to move all your production to another place? I would imagine that is extraordinarily difficult to do. Maybe even impossible to do to move all of your production elsewhere. But you know. I got like a C. minus in my operations management class in college so don't heated that class. That was the most boring class I ever took. All we did was use all of these formulas and stuff to track inventory and stuff. You know all the stuff that Tim Cook actually is good at. That's all the stuff I hated in college. It's terribly boring terribly boring. But that's what makes the wizard that he is. He is the operations wizard okay. Let's see here moving along here. Oh actually were making such great time but before we do this. I'm going to go with this story for us. So there are some potential big changes in the future when it comes to your Mac and this is some exciting news. Som- MAC OS leaks hint at a future. Where your Mac maybe using? Amd chips instead of Intel and. That is very exciting to me personally. I'll talk about that in just a second so the story goes this way could appleby preparing to make us a price which to amd processors future. Mac references to a number of new amd ape us have been spotted in the latest Mac os ten point. Fifteen point four Beta which just rolled out the developers that suggests that apple's Wayne t relationship with Intel could be maybe a little bit on the rocks apple join forces with Intel back in two thousand and five when it made a high-profile switch away from power or the power PC chips that adopted nineteen eighty-seven while the to have enjoyed a lot of success together. But there has been talk of change. It's been widely rumored that apple one day. Start using armed chips. They've designed like those in the IPAD and the iphone in. Its Max but before that happens apple could ditch Intel and cozy up with AMD INSTEAD ONE. Mac user has uncovered a bunch of references to MD chips and later its latest MAC. Os Beta there are also mentions of navy the world or the company's upcoming GP architecture which isn't a surprise. I guess because the MAC pro uses Amd graphics cards already so this would just be a switch to the CPS. Let me tell you why this exciting in the last year I would say. Md has had one of the greatest comeback stories. That I've ever seen and technology so I build in fact I just built this unbelievable powerhouse that has led lights all over it. I just blamed the hell this thing at Scott like all these different colors. Rgb lights it's one of the most beautiful PC's I've ever created in fact if you're interested in seeing I have a bunch of images of me building. It's on my instagram page on my instagram page of how much more of a bucket. I sound like on my instagram. It's go over to Pfizer and see it right there. So I- documented the whole process which really slowed me down. But it was a lot of fun and for the first time ever. I use an AMD CPU in my machine of Intel CPU because AMD's new CPU's are incredibly powerful so they used to be the CPU that you would buy if you couldn't afford Intel or didn't want to spend the extra money to get a really nice CPU but somehow amd leapfrogged Intel and really put them on their heels. They came out with these extraordinarily powerful. Cpu's it and in many ways are even more powerful than Intel Pews. And now. It seems like they're outpacing Intel like all of a sudden they're innovating faster than Intel so Intel is unable to even keep up with the technology that amd keeps dropping. And I put I put it in this crazy powerful. Cpu into my new. It has twelve course. And with hyper threading it can. It can act as a twenty four core. Cpu and it's cheaper than what Intel offers an Intel does even have anything offers that same level of power so now power but you're getting a smaller price tag and MD. Just had a keynote where they were talking about some of their their more mobile processors and those are incredibly powerful to Kino's thinking. Wow I wonder if apple looks at this type of thing and says you know maybe we should be considering using this technology instead of what we're currently doing and it looks like I should have guessed. Tc He listens to this show religiously every single week he just take some of these things icee and boom it gets implemented into an apple product. You know sometimes weeks later sometimes within days. That's how fast he moves. It's like boo. We'd take something that I say. And he gets to implement it right away and here we are. It looks like maybe apple might be using or might be making a switch to MD. This could lead nowhere. Could mean that they're just testing it. That's a possibility as well. But the fact that it's that there are references to amd chips inside of this. New Beta is exciting. Because it could mean that we could get drastically more powerful Max in the future and the have been by and large what have been holding back the performance on Max for a long time until just hasn't really been innovating all that quickly. There have been a lot of other changes on Max like more powerful I O. Faster SSD's better Wi fi better bluetooth that type of thing but the CPU performance really has been stagnant for years and then poof all of a sudden amd came out and they're innovating crazy again. So I've said this before it's exciting time to be a person who's interested in CPU's in GPS because all of a sudden the two behemoths are going. They're battling each other. It's like a tackle. The titans like that movie dislike wrassling with each other to switch to chips. Amd Well I think they probably are looking to switch to arm ships. But I wonder if they're going to do that across their whole line or if it's only going to be like slept machines that have that change. Maybe like the MAC book air would get that change because you get really long battery life and decent power. But you don't need to put. Yeah but that was that would mean they would have even more fragmentation of the wouldn't it? I mean with me they would. Have you know they'd be running on three different platforms? They're going to be doing that regardless I mean I seriously doubt they're going to do a sweeping change and move everything over to their own Cpu with one fell swoop. It's GonNa be like it was the catalyst and you know universal purchases. It's like you know you'd have to buy in a different IOS APP. You wouldn't have to buy it by different MAC. Os App you know. You just plan up right and this would work on whatever you know. Whatever machine You were running because it was the you know they've integrated IOS and and Mac os onto one platform. Isn't that the whole idea? I thought that was the reason why they were doing it. Wouldn't this be an interim I will? It could be yeah. I mean remember. When they switched to Intel there was a transition period. I mean what does it take like a whole year for them to move over entirely so my guess is that would be the way it works. Or I wouldn't be shocked if they ran these two things at the same time and I mean to your point about catalyst. I think the point was to make it easier for developers and if if it makes it easier for developers to put to write one piece of code and that APP can be used in on Iowa's and then also and Mac os than that works. Great they don't have to do as much work. It makes their lives easier. But I don't think consumers care what? Technology is working in the background if there is if they continue to use. Amd ON MAC OS and the APPS work their grades. But then when you use it on. Iowa's you're using a different architecture entirely. I don't see why they couldn't do that. I mean that's where we are right now rights. I mean we have intel chips in the macbook pro and we have apple's chips in ipad in and the you know the I thought the whole idea. I don't think apple's IT I don't know if they've actually expressly Talk about motivation. Or whether going but you know like all this stuff about catalysts and my you know which is because Mazatlan and You know seem to be moving towards the world where it all runs with just one platform instead of there being two platforms right down. That'd be one so it's just GONNA BE OS. Yeah I could be wrong. But that's what I thought was was going on. I think this is this what I thought they were headed. Were you may be right. I haven't heard anyone articulate that way and I. I don't know I mean to create an armed ship that is as powerful as some mega core desktop. Cpu FROM AMD. Maybe that's possible but I've never seen an armed ship. That is powerful. Like armed chances. Are It meant for Mobile Iphone? Eleven pro I mean you know the in the what is it the list you know what chip is running. I Dunno thirteen x thirteen. That's nearly thirteen bionic performance already isn't it? They say that base level base-level map of pro. I think but are they talking about single core performance or are they talking now multicolored performance. My guess would be single core performance. But if you're doing something that needs a lot of cores than you're going to need something like an amd thirty nine hundred x which has twelve course and also a screaming fast single core performance. I don't know I I I'm not a I don't know I'm not a CPU designers a non tech. So I can't speak with great detail on the differences between arm and Intel. Amd chips but my understanding was that with With with the chips that apple designs they are really good at sipping battery power and they're moderately powerful but they're not something that you would want in some kind of like desktop beast. Maybe they're working on something that we don't know about well. They're definitely working on things that we know about. But yeah that's all I can say about that without sending a bigger idiot than I've already sounded like Let's see here before we move on because I can tell what landers doing. He's trying to spin this excitement. He's like speaking of one. Os with just went os going everywhere. He's just the language that you're GONNA WANNA learn to program for the MAC and Iowa but before you do that leander because I can tell you ready to go. Let me give a very hardy.

And everyone's been waiting for this bringing swift playgrounds to the MAC and so what if Les Grandes? I hear you ask. It's apples. Educational CODING UP Which land on the IPAD in two thousand sixteen and now apple is created a catalyst version of swift playgrounds? The might make it easier for anyone to dive into interactive lessons. No matter which platform you prefer the most so simply against the MAC is available as a free press APP for the mockups tool and it provides a sousaphone lessons. That can teach you to code through interactive puzzles it also because you challenges to explore your coding capabilities. Although the my version is V playgrounds features. All the same lessons. You'll find on the ipod vision. Their differences apple added sidebar untouched support for the micro s APP. Ooh touch going to get into that. That's a game changer. Right there and the micro vision allows you to use the lowercase or Navigate Code suggestions. The new macbook seamlessly with Franken's for IPAD. Thanks cloud you can start one playground on your Mac and then opened up late on your ipod. Cool right decided hold our way. This is the best part requires zero. Coding knowledge they go. That's where I like. Someone like me could even do. Yeah Wow and You know help you learn the basics. This is how you need to do it. And it's such a path. It's messing the programming languages for the most popular APPs on iphone and IPAD. Yeah you know you know you could be an An OP mogul by next week. This could be this could be my ticket out of this guy. Get Out of this podcasting but accurate. Finally my way out. Well let me ask you because I know you're really into swift Leandra like when you were playing around with with playgrounds. What was your like the best part lake? We're like well this. This is clearly what people need to be using where I became completely befuddled. Thirty seconds of looking at it. I don't I don't even know what a right you know what this yesterday. And it was a lot of fun and if you have been wanting to learn how to code. I actually would like to learn more about swift. I do wonder if it's going to be something that is popular in the future. I've seen languages come and go in the past were company will back something like even Dobie. Adobe has backed specific languages like Flash Adobe Air was one that is one that comes to mind and and then they just don't get adopted and so you waste all your time learning this language that no one actually ever will use ever again. Apple's a massive company one of the biggest so swift has that working for it. But I kinda wonder is swift going to be something that's worth investing in. I just did not convinced people such swift like crazy aren't they? I mean from what I saw something yesterday. Someone was talking about it saying that. You know I mean if you're going to be developing apps it's going to be using and You know apple's not going to go anywhere and the absolute it's just going to get bigger and bigger isn't it? I think that is the by far the most successful software platform On the planet. Right you know it This is the code. They use an island. People like this with playgrounds like this. You know zero coating I think you can you. Can you can create complete apps that without touching any code at all right. It's all use the libraries and a lot of his visual. I I think the point is to learn how to Code. So eventually you'll be touching the code. I would imagine but it is interesting to me just because I would love to learn how to create an APP. I mean that is a really useful skill set to be able to create like right APPS and released APPs. I've got this really killer APP that I've had my mind forever. I only want to talk about it. Because one of those things like I'm GONNA mention it. And then people are going to copy it because it's going to be clear moneymaker and it has like this built in Built-in In-app purchase mechanism odd. Just tell you as always trusted you. Guys aren't GonNa try thought up so what I'd say about this mothers. No I didn't. It's called rip off and there's just like a bunch of pictures of different kinds of gusts of winds and then you press it makes that corresponding fart. Sound right. Think how much fun you're going to have when you're showing this to your friends or like you're in class and like the teachers up there and she's writing something real boring and then like like you just launch off one of these like these fart. Sounds good around. She's GonNa be like who did that and everyone's going to laugh. And then you can have like a monthly subscription where we're always saying what is this like eighty dollars a month. No no no. The APP is free. But then there's the part of the week right so there's the part of the week which is discounted rights normally. They're going to be like I don't know I'm thinking like eight dollars per fart. Because they take a lot of effort to record and you have to have sound. Engineer and special microphones and stuff and and then every week we do you knew. Every week we do we. We could do like celebrity versions right. It's like you get like the Shit Kilo pack right so we go to his house and we record him and like in the shower after he eats like a Burrito and stuff and then we sell you that whole pack down. I can't wait to get this. Actually the more I talked about it the more I think this is GonNa make me millions going to be like That guy who runs oracle just off this one APP so yeah so a visual element. You could do cheek of the week. Chica. The week get out your jumpsuit. Lewis you're too good this this is going to be great and we gotta make a list of like celebrities like maybe apple slavery is like we definitely gotta get was on. There is going to be. That's going to be some Some really powerful flagellations record after he does one of his Segway Polo matches or something. They have gone too far. I'm just getting started this. I'm taking notes as we do this anyway. So it'd be great to be able to program that myself so I definitely want to play around with with programs are swift players K. We haven't even left. Let's do this. Let's do this last story so if you're frustrated with your apple keyboard we'll wrap up at the story. You're not alone and apple just got called out in a big way. Joe Joe Rabbits screenwriter. Which is a movie. I've never heard of have you guys heard of Joe Rabbit but I've heard of it. Yeah you everyone else. Think Joe Joe Rabbits. It's supposed to be great. Didn't mean Iran. Eventually sure when it comes to that. When it comes apple up TV PLUS GIOJA RABBITS SCREENWRITER. Vents are about the horrendous. Mac Book Keyboards. This has just gone mainstream. This is that's why I love this story because we talked about how bad the keyboards are but people who don't follow technology. They just have no idea. They don't even know what iphone version were on. You know people ask me all the time. Like wh- version of the IPHONE. Should I get? And they don't even know what's out there they just don't follow it. Actors love some to have some political message to impart to viewers at award shorts. Boy Do they ever we all just love hearing them comforting? Well that's why that's why I watched the second here. Their political opinions at last night's Oscars TYCO TT winner of the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay screenplay for Gioja Rabbit voiced his own passionate plea this time for apple to change. Its Gall Darn Mac book keyboards. He said quote apple needs to fix those keyboards. They are impossible to write on and they've gotten worse and makes me want to go back to PC. What because keyboards the bounce. Back for your fingers is way better and those apple. Keyboards are horrendous. Doesn't that just make you feel good inside loose I teach you? Don't know exactly how he feels all man. I absolutely I would go as far as saying that. The New Keyboard on the twenty nineteen sixteen inch math. Appro that one feature if you use the keyboard allot maybe worth upgrading. Just for that one feature. It's a night and day. Difference I still the tribunal is new ones. You GotTa get into the Apple Store and take a few clicks on the keyboard but you better take your band aids with you and actually put them on before you go because it's a nice experience. It's a real nice experience like you. Just get your fingers on there. And it's like. Oh yeah you're taping up and down and those keys they got just threat amount of give and at push you know like you don't feel like you're just typing on a glass surface. It just feels feels the way of keyboards. Should and I think you're the type of guy that would would appreciate something like that since you're on the keys all day long that'll joking. Stevie wonder of Apple Journalism Journalism Keyboards. Yeah Yeah not on. The minds of man won't touch it. Absolutely have to yeah. You got to get one of those external keyboards and Go back so there you go. You know I think we should go ahead of wrapped up there. That's all the best stuff that we could find for this week. You know. Let's keep our fingers crossed. We got some more stories. And maybe some new hardware coming coming up with wood chips here in this barrel. You know. We're down at the very bottom. That's the guest. I think I can handle this week. But if you guys WANNA come reach out to us and say hi or talk about in the stories that we mentioned on today's show we're all on twitter. I'm at a year EPA when Inter's LP Lewis's out Lewis Wall has been the whole cast the best thirty plus optimization. You're gonNA hear all week. Long episodes called cast come out every Thursday night for listening. And we'll see you next time out. Guy Virus got it. Oh man never get the best crossed my mind. Lindor good tastic. Do you really have a massage at five assure. Do and the reason you left You know you'd have one last week to maybe actually. Yeah now well. I got a car accident three months ago. That until you guys that Yeah Yeah and my back. I kinda screwy so I've been getting massage to kind of help. Calm down. See A medical insurance plan for this car insurance so D- roll over at the end of that grabbed and he goes all the way to go into overdrive. I was in Thailand and boy. I had this little will Zola's vis together the whole family in one big room. They were prisoners at the local At the local Cheka rehabilitate the now famous. In Chiang Mai there's a there's a sense of the way you can go and get a massage from these these prisoners. And you know I you know I. The women went very big and I thought it was GONNA be. You know wimpy but they they you know they they They they massage me like a piece of dough like it was actually really quite painful. I guess it depends on your hand. Power got a massage by this lady and I called her fire clause she would dig a little pincers into your back and I was screaming in silence into my pillow. Is She fingers although into my abdomen especially not pleasant? It depends on who you get like. She was kind of a masochist. I feel like she actually got some weird sick pleasure from hearing me Moan in discomfort because the more I would do it the more she would have this maniacal little giggle. It's a bad guy. Giggling and the more I would be the hardest. She would laugh. Weird people really get off on that type of thing. When was this? This was like a month ago? Yeah now she went back to Mexico so I got a new massage. That's why new massage therapist. He dresses on black. He's pretty cool dude. Does he bring his table portable tables. He doesn't come to my house. Oh Yeah I go to him. It'd be nice if he came to my house. That'd be great. Although in my situation actually probably not because my all my kids everywhere you know. It'd be a complete disaster. Be No way to relax. My House is like a terrible nightmare. You can escape from kids running around everywhere screaming from the moment they get up from the moment they get out. They're arguing. She took my Dau- I want you whining of the top of their lungs. Pushing each other over. It's just wild Lewis. You're really missing out. Yeah WITH HIS WIFE. Right screaming and shouting for the minute. She gets no comment.

Trump and Pelosi's "Meltdown" Insults & Gordon Sondland's Bombshell | Taika Waititi

"Comedy Central's World News Headquarters in New York. This is the daily show with Trevor Noah ears you're listening to comedy central October Seventeenth Two thousand nine hundred ninety this has been a comedy central podcast let's start things off talking about the miracle of life and why it's so creepy the parents do thank you it is known for his work on mobile store movies and and what we do in the shadows phenomenal film tonight urge to Blobs they can transmit knowledge to each other experts call it one of nature's mysteries okay that sounds like the beginning of a horror movie at least two thousand years old okay that sounds like the beginning of a horror movie maybe there's a reason these twenty coffins were sealed try shut up and open them and by the way a quick shout out to the guy who owned the coffin store in ancient Egypt can we just give him props coffins were stacked inside a large tube and they were sealed an intact amazingly their colors and carvings have not faded despite being the blog has seven hundred twenty sexes can move without legs or wings and it heals itself if it's cut in half it has no brain but is able to learn and if you here with a new comedy in which he plays I want to get this right Adolf Hitler Tyco Ytd's joining US tonight anathema serious new organism they nicknamed it the Blob it's yellow Eunice cellular small living being it looks like fungus but it acts like an animal Ah long to some big international news Egypt still has old things left to dig Oh bury people in an apple box basically yeah think about when they dig up our coffins in two thousand years there's going to be like man people in two thousand nine hundred broke ass bitches sounded like the news report everyone in the movie ignores ten minutes before the blob takes over the town and also what does that mean that the blood has seven hundred and twenty different sexes think about those coughing copies of loss of longer than any civilization ever onate some beautiful and they stand I mean these days keeping up with the news today you probably know that it was more chaotic than free cocaine day at Dave and buster's that was gonna be adorable she ran over his leg he ran over her heart but yes eating roadkill is now exploded into little pieces today it's probably because they saw this president trump is hosting a major meeting of world leaders next year at his Miami area twenty eight coffins in Egypt are being called one of the most important archaeological finds in recent years they were discovered recently along over the but thanks to a new law in California you can also get a drive over roadkill could soon be on the menu yes that's right roadkill it is what's for dinner now personally I'm disappointed because we had a whole show plan and it was going to be a great show we figured out who killed Jeffrey Epstein but we had says is a violation of ethics rules wow that is crazy the president is making world leaders hold giant event at his own resort then when I do it I'm desecrating the greed Luther Vandross like how is that fair right and finally when Hungary and on the go there's nothing better than the drive throw it all out the window because there was so much breaking news too much news in fact luckily though too much news is just the right amount of news for a segment we call a nobody joke wall comes to the White House a blob monsters taking over the world and do say Sloan is here to deal with Donald Trump so let's catch up on today's headlines Oh and also quick question how much time needs to poss- until it's acceptable to stop digging up dead people in losing their grapes because when these guys dig up coffins there archaeologists the normal day in normal presidency we would spend all our time talking about how shade is the trump is forcing world leaders to host the G. Seven summit at his golf club that he makes money from the BLOB say that we're the scientists like what are your pronouns on all of that and I know a lot of people see this and they get stressed like Oh my God governor Gavin Newsom has just signed this new bill into law Senate bill three ninety five would allow drivers who unintentionally fatally strike at deer elk yellow Blob is going to take over the world guys some yellow Blob with no brain isn't going to take over the planet because if it tries we have an orange blob with no brain that's going to fight it take it American leaders are storming out of the White House shortly after a House vote where more than one hundred Republicans joined Democrats condemning the president's abrupt withdrawal of us time for that with the government ethics expert and you wondering why their head resort and golf property next year's g seven summit will take place at the trump national Durell in Miami that move is raising questions about whether hosting this large event at one of the president's business storming out using the same language as Pelosi against her tweeting she had a total meltdown in the White House today it was very sad to watch pray for her where the stories I've ever seen because honestly I've never driven possed roadkill and thought I fondly it wasn't a crime I wouldn't eat a banana legal in California and owns seventy seven Oh was that illegal my bed and I'm going to like this is especially considering how he always brags about how he doesn't profit from the presidency but today's not a normal day and this is not an old presidency because while he's inviting foreign leaders to Miami Golf Club it really seems like there's nothing trump wouldn't do to profit of the presidency like I bet you he's going to be outside his own impeachment trial scalping tickets it's going to be standing outside there it's from Syria a heated confrontation inside the White House that clash between President Trump and top Democrats spilling out onto the steps of the west wing in local wild pig to take home and cook it it would also allow people who stumbled upon an animal carcass in the road can also keep it for food that is expected to help in California people are going to be taking dead animals home that's sounds like the beginning of a great romantic comedy I found on the floor you taking home dead deer actually you know what I would do if I wrote this long I would have added a pop that says if you kill an animal with your car you have to eat it so add that if you hit an animal but you died than animal gets to eat you believe people rules are rules all right that's it for the headlines Let's move on can you have to eat it yeah you see safe the highways would become who'd be like honey school down I'm not hungry slowdown and also just to be with the animals Turkey breaking news in Turkey the United States says it has helped to broker a five day ceasefire involving Turkish forces in northern Syria Vice President Mike Pence Turkey is very happy the United States is very happy and you know what civilization is very happy to great thing for civilization for each other remind me of remind me of those old church ladies who act really nice in public but then pray insult each other nobody like dear Lord please ask civilization is very happy centuries from now historians will look back at the greatest achievements of all time the development of democracy the invention of electricity and the time trump negotiate now one day started it seemed like we were going to spend our time talking about the beef between trump and the Democrats but we didn't have time to talk about the beef because the news broke about she is a very sick person okay I know you are but what am I like our trump is insulted he just steals I win win but unfortunately we don't have the time to talk about that because well Turkey is getting the Kurds out of Syria the Democrats trying to get trump out of the White House and today the latest old US officials to talk directly to his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani about US policy in Ukraine and he said he didn't know until later that Giuliani's agenda impeachment inquiry we're dropping bombs like he was invading the Middle East ten the impeachment inquiry Golden Sunland is a key witness and he's opening statement he said President Trump did someone leaves these files on the floor I'll get rid of it for you shoot rabbits now stay at trump's resort I don't trust him trust blake trump would probably sneak into your room to try to find dirt on Joe Biden like at the door like housekeeping acting chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney directly contradicting president trump on a quid pro quo with Ukraine saying hundreds of millions of dollars in US military aid was saying that he did put pressure on Ukraine but he didn't know it had anything to do with Joe by you see what he's doing he's trying to distance themselves from what trump did yeah he's tickets tickets who needs tickets to my impeachment best seats in the house come on your next to me and also if I was a world leader I wouldn't want in foreign policy okay. Holo trump has said on multiple occasions no quid pro quo of any kind now middle-aged Harry it and you know what if we have time we would be discussing how disingenuous it is of trump to claim that this is a peace deal when in fact the Kurds just got screwed over because the deal is really should cease fire basically started what a great achievement civilization they have five days to leave the land and then Turkey gets the land that's the deal yeah it doesn't sound like a deal it sounds like the kind of deal I had with my high school bully I would give him my lunch money and he would give me a black he had no idea that that meant Joe Biden he had no idea what that meant hundred Oh this is slick from sunland he's now is coming out saying that there was a certain type of quid pro quo but everyone must get over its that's just get over it everybody doesn't so this is club Turkey getting the greatest deal of all time no could pro quo but also could pro quo a showdown in the White House and we didn't even have time to tell you that Rick Perry who is tied to the whole Ukraine scandal even in one day nobody time for that we'll be right back I'm not going to get involved war between Turkey and Syria especially when if you look at the Kurds and again I say this with great respect then no angels we do consulted with zero shame like maybe this is how you trick them into getting out of the White House he just like I'm sick of you I resign no I'm sick of you I reside needed pushing Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and he says that throughout this time he was working to to get Ukraine to advance an investigation into corruption in debris abruptly resigned today and you know what this might be the true genus of Donald Trump you realize with one scandal you get kicked out of office but with it was on the to withhold funding to the the look back to what happened in two thousand sixteen certainly was part of the things that he was worried about in corruption with that nation anger family conflicts.

Episode 168: Parasite Wins Everything. As It Should.

"The ABC lapping see Lapin D. F. G. Committee products. Yes if you can hear the challenge you know what that means. It's time for zero credits. The show where we talk about things by names Harmonic Henry. Iv that Little Bell Guy from Kirby also known as John and together were harmonic Henry and that Little Bell Guy from pervy also known as John Calvin Achy to ring out the dulcet tones of that their cultural Zeitgeist I Y- I'm frontloading the beginning of his episode of a lot of Chinese talk and and that's because on seconds before we started a recording. Let me know that the wind chimes located on the balcony of my apartment are apparently very audible when it's windy out. And it's a cold and Windy Day here at the Zero Credit Studio apartment studios so that's a disclaimer. I guess let me tell you you're gonna be able to hear some wind on these episodes as not just the wind. Where usually Dole it out of our mouth hot air now. This cold air cold air. It's forty degrees fucking Texas. Why why when I moved here. I was told explicitly that it never rains in. It's hot hot hot hot and traffic and the only thing I've experienced so far is constant rain. It is cold and traffic low. The traffic is consonant. I moved here. I met with Who was a CACTUS? No and he told me much the same thing I cactus. Cactus dead own Aspen very cold. Can I tie survive? Absolutely they can yours. Didn't know that was okay. So if you're making a list fans at home if you're keeping track keeping score things. Cactuses can survive one cold to head. Yes they can survive anyone but Henry my girlfriend as grown a small little. Cactus terrarium thing never waters. It grows great one little chicken and succulent nine Pete that I tried to take care of dead new week. I had a weird arrangement of succulents that I did myself was very proud of. I don't know how to do any organizing or anything and I I. The thing is my apartment got zero son. Yes and I didn't WanNa put it outside because I thought bird would eat it. That's fair I think. Succulents do have a lot of defense mechanisms against bird's not the ones I bought They didn't have thorns. I bought the saddest loneliest defencelessness. I guess you would call it. Vulnerable now Succulents I could and I whispered to them every night. I'm going to protect you and every night. They're like fuck. You were GONNA die when Henry. I raised the Gen Z. You raised doom or succulents tumor succulent so you. You get around the succulent with no spines Henry. You bought a lie. Oh No that why it smelled very citrusy. Inspired a tyrod. Yes it is unfortunately long enough. You would have gotten a lie ambush. They're not trees. Hung grow intrigue. Listen I'm not a botanist. Neither remind all I know. Is they grow into things bushes and scooters. I'm GonNa tell you what I bought about. This episode of the PODCAST is brought to you by two different beers. I I have a dammit. Jim Amber Ale left here after a Sephardi. Sorry big again party Fog Ed how you gotTa let me. Tell you how many times we said super he can't say during our last podcast. Lisa's Super Twenty Times. No and John's using a hammer to open up a bottle cap. I was really hoping it'd break your your Cute Hammer Acute hamlets is A. I'm listen I was taught how to read things at a very specific way. Read from the left to right top to the bottom is a two hundred years in America. Guinness two hundredth anniversary exports brewed with black patent multi opened Gabri. Saint James Gay. Dublin are art h Guinness. Six point five percent alcohol by volume twelve point two fluid ounces this toll road deliver report. You fluid ounces. I being robbed point eight fluid right. Now there's A. There's a global trend out. There called Shrink flation. You heard of this. I have not heard of this okay. This is actually kind of fascinating products that we are used to buying are getting smaller for the same price. You are getting less of the product that you're paying for at the same price that you used to pay for more rather than change the prices they change the packaging they change. How they they stacked the amounts. I'll give you an example of this. The Girl Scouts of America of the one the one girl the girl Scout Scouts America that they're more than with weight is there more than one girl Scout. The last time I checked. No there is not well. I don't know I don't know if it's them or whatever baking company that makes them the smallest cookie. It debuted last year for the first time. That's what they've you means. And it came in like sleeves and he would get like thirty of these cookies fifteen in each sleeve. That's a lot of sleeve. Four American dollars bargain thirty of these s'mores cookies and they were really good. I really like the main joined them this year the second year their debut year I keep doing these these policies roundish rephrasing the thing and saying I think it sounds good for radio but all. I'm doing this assailing like an idiot this year however total package just fifteen cookies really for the same price. Same four dollars. They've shrunk the amount of food for the same price and a lot of people. A lot of companies are doing this. Well I think that's for the best consumptions bad bill gus. Food should not be cheap. Food should be very expensive. Food should be expensive. We should star. Now let me describe the taste of this beer. It's thick it's thickened kind of but when you say thick and sour only say thick what like to seize or k three CS. Holy Shit with a K. At the of Jesus Christ Are you sure you just didn't misspell? It's a very heavy beard. Maybe because it's this two hundred year Guinness at supposed to taste like the original formulation. It tastes like a beer. I take it. It tastes like a beer. One would drink while sitting around some kind of floppy wooden table speaking of rebellion. I saw my personal experience. That beer ed to the myself was that every time I took a sip I imagined myself walking into a tavern after a long day in the coal mine ordering this one beer because it's all I could afford and that was my substance for the night and so I was pretty good. It drinks meal. Now you've got. The damage is not a local beer because this Guinness sure as Hell isn't says brewed and canned in Texas New Republic Brewing Company. Dammit Jim Amber Ale is light it says beanie up so I mean there. There's allusions to star trek the original series and it's just like a light wheaty kind of amber ale that I don't know it's good for sessions especially beer. It's essentially beer that's New Republicans a brewery often said Heb but never purchase. I liked to buy beers that are closer again real into session beers lately. You know not getting older. I'm getting older so the the the ramifications of drinking are felt heavier the next day but so we ended up event this past weekend and all I did was slam a couple of Session Beers. Maybe four in total of the course for hours and I never really got maybe mildly buzzed until like a real comfort zone. Where I I realize some of the things I was saying like. You wouldn't say that if you hadn't just let you but I never really got drunk in the next day. I felt pretty fine. Yeah it's it's There's something to be said and I know this goes against everything that I stand for. There's something to be said for. Drinking things of a lower. Alcohol percentage over a longer period of time because I typically speaking lake. Your your higher gravity. Yeah I mean you're higher gravity ails. I tend to gravitate toward Higher heavier stuff as well. Just because that's how gravity works. Yeah it gets closer to you and you get closer to it. I so for instance one of my last experiences with super high. Ab The beer. Because I used to drink man. There used to be this beer in the state where we were from called hot coffee. That was a coffee stout that was ten percent alcohol. It was my favorite but I got a six pack of Founders arrogant bastard. Which is I think nine or ten percent. I drank a few of those and surprise surprise. I was drunk. Yeah a great feeling to be drunk when you're not expecting it when you're drinking something that you like the taste of. Yeah I think I will stop drinking to get drunk. Yeah I'm kind of in the other special occasions. I mean mind rather people's Birthdays Easter Christmas. The Sabbath at took that month off from drinking and my main take away from that whole experiment was that there was no day woke up and felt like shit. Yeah and that was like a weird like blessing that I didn't know was gonna be a blessing like I never had to be apprehensive of waking up because I knew I was gonNA feel okay for the entire day. Yeah it's Nice in my drinking is great and I love the taste now which is like complete opposite from Before drank like I. I need to drink something other than water. Yeah 'cause I drink water all day when when the night hits when the sun goes down might drink needs to be not clear. Yes amazes. Podcast needs to be coke zero or alcohol or coke. Zero and alcohol orca zeroed alcohol. I feel much the same way. I've gotten to a point because I'm slightly older than you. Where our brag more? We're being drunk. Feels less pleasant so even even being in my cups as they say or would have said at the time of this beer even being in my copses less pleasant and I don't super enjoy the experience and I've I've gotten myself into situations where just drink things I like the taste of them and then I find myself drunk. I'm like well Shit. Yeah it sneaks up on you that. That's that crafty drunkenness. Drinking is something. One must always examine because left to its own devices. Drinking can ruin your life. It'll stab. Oh Yeah well. Yeah. That's a whole thing. I believe they call it drink a whole ISM. I think I think a drink a whole ISM is Arizona. We should make light of that. Little Biddy name for it. It's called alcoholism it's serious ailment. Disorder illness what have you and it ruins lives. So let's just move on so just like my family rather than talk about alcoholism we will change the subject. Hey I came at that was brought up in a half Catholic half Protestant household and we discussed nothing so half of it love the pope. Half of it hated the pope while half of them had no strong feelings about the pope. Either way how did they feel about the two popes now on saw? I I think that is true. Solitude Buzz but we're getting ahead are getting so ahead we have to. We honor bound. Were duty if you've been following the podcast in the past few weeks dams you know what we're going to introduce the four fence stolman of the fast and furious. Colon spy racers netflix series. The owls job. We have to discuss this episode. And I'm going to set the timer. I believe Oath nine breaking the tie of so We got twenty four minutes and thirty seconds on the clock of its ever increasing. Every time we talk about spy racers if you some of the joke as doing it it loses a little bit of edge and also now like a layer of veneer has been shorn off this this whole production yes. I'm adding tied each time because I don't know how to not do a thing once I start something. It goes until completion but the funny thing is the the future joke. Is that the Times that I add are going to be increasingly. Insanely like smaller. So look forward to that. I Guess Twenty four minutes thirty seconds on the clock the OWL will job for episode of Spy Rids Racer at the BASS infuriates spy razors. Here we go start. I hate this show. Yeah I desperately show. Hana what it was about this episode but he the pacing for this show with literally insane. Yes we get the premise of the show. In the first episode the Second Episode Ridge Reduced All the characters the third episode those characters finally get some characterization and now in the fourth episode we learn the back story of frosty. No reason I totally forgot the background of frosty parts. I only remember it because a slightly cool thing is he's got two MOMS has two miles which is cool one thing let's Cool about this episode. I guess as it has the fast and furious thing and sometimes people race for no reason. Now I will give this show credit in that the action sequences are Kinda good. And that's kind of the only thing it has going on for it because even in that action sequence toward the end. When they're meeting Circa Doshi was his name. Joshua Dr Whatever. How do you know these Ninety nine percent sure all earlier in the episode someone called Him Shasha. Yeah and I think they just didn't care and kept so in that actress sequence of John is complemented toward the end of it when the reaching Sasha Dr We'd get this photo. Finish that neither of the characters could no or acknowledge and yet they both in the shows reality acknowledged that one beat the other even though it would be impossible for them to tell he's got a he's got. Toronto is there's functionally nothing to talk about in this episode. I I mean I've got real grievances against the show now because it's one thing to be like oh it takes place in the fast and furious world and one of the characters is related to dom hereto and then we're going to build off in our direction but now they're building lower from the main series. Yes because Tony Toronto tells a story about his aunt or something. Yeah who had a bird? A- and apparently don thereto the Dominic. Toronto went back to save the bird from a House. Fire from a house fire. And now we're led to believe vet all Toronto's will always go back to save the bird like build your own little corner of the universe. Yes you know built. Do Your own thing. In this cinematic universe that is beloved by millions but don't try to put lower in the film's mouth like don't we never saw Toronto. Save a bird now now. I'm okay with them building the universe. I disagree in that. I like the idea of doing that. Because it gives us something to talk about but something I want to look at is Tony. Torello is Dom Toronto's what cousin. He's his cousin which means Tony. Toronto is the child of weight. Wasn't what's cousin cousin is like. I don't have a family so cousin his like year. Your father's brother at his brother had a kid. Your father's nephew is your cousin. Okay so Tony Toronto. His parents one of his parents was one of his payroll. Had A brother. Reser at assistant whose child was dominic. Toronto hold on. I need to get this straight so dominant HERETO HAS HAS A. Let's say a mom. Yes his mom is a sister. His sister had Tony Tony Toronto. Yes that's it please. Their age difference so huge because what if what if dominic was as surprised baby to a teenage parent on darkness. Antonio Toronto was a planned baby of a down the line like I technically have cousins. Who are in like their elder. They're I guess. They're near their seventies. Really Oh yeah because of the two. I guess a little small deep dive into my family. My Dad was the youngest four and the gap between him and his eldest sister was about twenty or so years. Yeah I had an uncle. That was like ninety. People used to be having babies. Let me tell you people be having babies now. Donna toney Gerardo aunt. His aunt is his Kodak. Theories is could you be dominic? Toronto's mother could actually be dominic turtles mother. Yes absolutely that yeah. There's no way to dispute it so we know now we have built out at least somewhat the Toronto family tree. Because we mama and Papa Toronto to Dom Yeah and then we have a branch that Tony could be A. And Tony's aunt could be DON'S MOM but also Mr Mrs Toronto Have Mia Dom and John CENA bound Bon- a bond spoiler what's his name. Jacob Jacob I thought it was just which credible Justin Turner Toronto. We gotTA Whitest Name. We could not now. We built up the family tree. I think that's interesting. This whole bird thing. What do you think about codes being stored Diamonds Kyle Care and apparently the CO okay. So there's a whole there's a whole like usually like there's a CPAP plot you confer away. There's an entire be plot. You can throw away in this episode. I daresay you can throw away the APE flawed as well. Nothing truly occurs in this episode. Oh Tony Thereto in my Sandri yes. What's her Liana Leyla? Leyla SA- Tony. Leyla bonded a little bit. And that's I think that's hinting at the future. Where late La's HE'S GONNA TURN? Leyla to the the light side of the force. Yes while as Sachet Dr is GonNa Try to light corrupt turn to the dark side of the force. Even though we know that Sashi Dr is actually a good guy and I don't know we'll see also I don't know how I feel like in this. Twenty thousand age of like let's let's representing all. I don't know how I feel about having a Russian character depicted wearing the hat. Yeah I for the sole fact that all we got dollars Russian Yeah I. I don't know that character was bad. That whole scene was bad. This year was bad. The entire episode is really bad. I guess the only thing I really got out of the Russian singers like further evidence that literally everyone in this universe can drive really well and just further credence. That Tokyo drift was just a joke. On whatever the main character's name was just so bad like you'd like yeah this is Kinda like my community service. I'm GONNA teach his kid at Adrift. Yeah because everyone else can do but an for submarine and for some reason as a severe driving based learning disability And when he returns and highway to hell we'll see that Nothing happens is episode. I badly hate him. I'll what it's a filler episode in an at a series of eight episodes now I was one thing I was going to say but I don't remember it Wasn't that interesting. We still get sixteen minutes all right more things. At this point it feels like piling on but like do we really need like a got reach my steps for the day. Joe Now we don't Oh I know what I liked what ally I liked. Rusty Rusty was really good at Lusty was borrow the highlight of this episode. Shashi Dr has a security chief or head of security for his private home named rusty and rusty is an incredible character really whoever's writing the typically pretty bad jokes the show really hit it out of the park with this one rusty. He has one character trait. And that's he over explains everything. He's really into cameras. I almost feel as though they decided to write him that way. Because win the power fails due to by the way they can generate her. Tell you wait no. They can generate false earthquake generate false or because they called it. A falls earthquake in my. Isn't that just an earthquake But they can happen. Yeah the win. The power goes down at the. Dr Residents Rusty says time to report the camera system. And I think if I were right I'll be like sensory after put in that line for children. Wouldn't it be since he was compelled to say Tim? No one time to reboot the camera system. He might just be someone who says everything he thinks. That over explains every single thing he talks about. What is the Louis Francois Gayer? Yes yes gary types. I camera my. This is my second favorite usage of daguerreotypes in media of them. Life is strange the video game. Yeah the First Episode Life. The strange thing in the in the classroom you have that roast professor teaching about the gators you ever played. Life is strange replied. Life is strange. It's quite good quite good. If I want to read a book I will. It's quite good. You did read a book. It's called Disco Elise Eum. It's a very long book so the the good thing about rusty is so. Sassy dire whose name. I'm probably butchering is on the phone with sky. And like he hangs up on them. Yes and later when he arrives at home. Rusty is Kinda like you know outside Kelly. Everything good all things good yup and like Very like non forthcoming with like and then finally comes onto such Logan sorry I hung up on you like that felt like a real genuine person moment because it was great it was really good mom because he's like. I lock down to listen. That was rude. I was wrong. Do you WanNa talk about him. A made up. Yes weirdly heartwarming I. It's always good to see a multimillionaire. Treat his his staff with some modicum of of humanity. Wasn't there a thing early on in the episode where zoomed on the characters face Another character just said buoy off for some reason. Yeah that happened in literally the opening of this. Yeah so so. Leyla shows up at the crew. Hey Hey hang out and tells tony to read. Oh Hey Sasha dire needs to meet you or something and then for no rea. The only lines CISCO HATS in this in this episode. It feels like he looks right into the camera and goes boo for no reason or absolutely a reason and also Cisco's other line is he finds a fro Yo because barely fro. Yo is the thing that we wanna keep bringing back then at the very and I don't know if he says I think but he is drinking directly from the container of milk which was funny. Well he's he's on gallon of milk day. Go mild is ongoing. I'm Gal Soya Milk Day. I'm go sad especially on bag of Bagel a very funny bad. It's pretty funny. Sorry I'm a dark place right now because we still have eleven minutes and thirty seconds that talk about this episode that we both did not like I have. I have an idea for what can use the remaining eleven minutes. You don't have to sit here in silence. Noonan how what we'll do. Just the sound of the wind. China's eleven minutes yeah How a listener hostile. What I would like to do is just spice it up a little bit. I know it might be outside the scope but I'd like to say there's not going to be time to talk about it on this episode. Probably and it's something I care about and people should know what I'll do is all give one thing about the episode. Most likely something I liked or didn't like and I will use it equivalent amount of time to describe something from the movie. Birds of prey or the fantabulous emancipation liquid. Oh we can't do that. Fine even the fucker going to take a long time. The set that up a Giga we give you look. I'll is the basis of all creative. We have to keep it fast and furious related. I'm sorry you can't bring in other cinematic universe. Properties okay because we do have fast and furious news to discuss. It's a shame we have to talk with spy racers. Though it's part of the same cinematic universe. We have to tie in though it involves vin diesel so dominic just a refresh dominic. Toronto is the cousin of Tony. Toronto I get dominance. Hereto is in a series of the two year thing. You're now going to be labor bags of fast and furious so that there's no time for might well look when you call attention to the joke and he removed of okay. Finding this episode has appearance news. So have you seen the headline or the article more inclined to read the entire thing yes then diesel has said he wants to split. The ten yet has part of fast and furious into two movies. I I've been saying this for a long time and this is GonNa be. This is not gonna be the first or the last time you hear this listeners. By hit me with the Hobbit. Oh Yeah you make make make audit of this. Who's making the funny thing is like okay? The the headline caught me off guard because number one. Who said they were? GonNa stop at ten films yet so there was. This news is coming out of nowhere. Stimulant described the ninth film as the penultimate film. And I don't know where this narrative of there's only gonNA be ten fast and furious. Movies came from because. I'm devastated by that. There's no roles in cinema once you hit ten to stop like don't split the tenth movie into two parts just doing eleven movie so the thing that I you know. I have to respect them because they had. They had the restrictions that they had and a lot of people haven't done this of they paid the price but I appreciate that they're ending it. Where the books have you know a lot of times? You see you see. Just you know like friends. You see these sitcoms just keep going forever until like three hundred episodes or whatever it just gets kind of the same or whatever so. I'm glad that the fast and furious franchise is taking a page out of like breaking bad's book and they're ending before it gets stale. Y- asked her after ten the slash eleven movies pledged twelve movies Hudson. Shaw Oh yeah and then the doors open for the other characters. Have you think we're finally going to get our UH ludicrous? Spinout yes the TEJ Lavinia the rise the rise of TEJ. Unfortunately I have looked at the SPEC script but they did not go with the rise of taste of Chicago. I would watch tomorrow. It's the same. Same plot yeah yeah. doesn't That Park or video game mirrors tej mayors pretty good. That's pretty good galaxies. Ted this new world. How many more TEJ jokes can remain on? These are fighting game on the playstation called soul. Ted Jr Elliott Solta edged salt edge. It's on the dreamcast right. Yeah Yeah Yeah and then it was. Renamed Sole Roman. Yes got ported. Later the verity fucking show really is But Yes tej tomorrow slash saw suckers eleven. We've already established that investors negative space. They have to and are proposed. Script Profess Ten highway to hell dom or the crew journeys to hell to save somebody from the crew. Yes to rip them from the midst of the devil from the devil himself played by. Let's say just roll him because that'd be fun right. Yeah Yeah Yeah just rolling the devil. Happy that'd be pretty good. That'd be close I. I don't know if I'm typecasting him but look I'm not a producer. I'm just an ideas guy. Yeah no so. We made that plan would before we had the knowledge that the tenth movie might potentially be split in Twain. How does that knowledge a fact our plans for highway to hell so knowing that it's in two parts it complicates it but I've thought about this. Okay now I think fast and furious ten highway to hell remains okay. I think that the plot largely remains unchanged they they rip this person from the midst the ninth circle of. Hell were politicians. Go or whatever. Dante said found that people who eat marshmallows go but the thing is I'm GonNa Pitch it to you this way. We know the people of our generation are now writing movies. You're twenty five to thirty five year olds are now in charge there. The creatives now. Yeah Okay and they were raised by one thing. They were raised by Japanese role playing games. Where the ultimate objective was to kill. God Okay so we're going to whole of three yes slash any persona game slash any final fantasy game. Yes yes so I was thinking about this. Like what if they travel all over the health? Fight Hell's legions meets Satan turns out like he's either pretty chill guy.

Oh Man and a red dodd style. The world is now but colonized by angels who like put people in camps and took over the government or whatever they take the date they remove all the roads cause they can fly. Yeah they'll need row. They removed the roads. They removed the roads. They take where we're going. We don't need roads seriously. Delete the roads of Angel powers to make room for like I don't know people in cages.

It's like it's doom meets ban that a and possibly the unreleased as of now do return on. Yeah do maternal plus Bayan Ida. Yeah perfect perfect perfect movie and we'll workshop this. You know we got it before it comes out. Yeah this is the SPEC for right now so if you want a grease palms of silver getting contact with US and send. Us owned millions of dollars. Yeah listen to the end of the episode. Hollywood execs for the a contact information. That's our official business. Email that you can hit us up at for the ideas about fast and furious and really about any other long-standing franchise because I feel like all franchises need heaven in Haluk absolutely and it's a shame because we do share an email address for sponsorship inquiries for the video of a cap that sounds like a southern guy saying Ojai. Yeah well save agency. I guess the The the Angels Choir Bells Chirpin. That sounds means. We're out. Of how unfortunate. How unfortunately we talked about spider racers of spy racers. So long fills the required. We have to do four or those Can only get better. I asked this is called the episode. Four Hav have now we have it now? It didn't Downton. Abbey slaps can only get better from here. There's no way that executives for a Netflix show did three decent episodes then called might a job and then just left the rest to like. I don't know a Markov chain generator there. There's no way 'cause you know people have always said Netflix. Truly cares about Art Zanga Zanga. Now I don't know about you Henry but there was another little event outside a fast a furious by racers. These devices tastes like prices so we opened up our second beer which are have been covered on the show before. But have you ever drink or experience? Something me thought this is pretty good and then like you try a second thing that this blows the first thing out of the fucking water not even close yacht even close like half a vice-like so I drank damage in pretty good. I took one sip on this. Half of is like Oh beer can be good. Yes live oak is a good brewery and the half of Aisin Rules Aria New Republic. Who CARES Sorry New Republic. Sorry public who this There was another event to the side of the fast and furious universe geist. I don't know if you saw this John. I don't know if you Tuned in Saturday a little event. I don't know if you know this The Ninety Second Academy Awards. Oh I was referring to a different event about where. Yeah I was referring to the results of the two thousand twenty New Hampshire primary tonight. It's happening tonight with sixty four percent tab now with sixty four percent of ordering and a whole thing that I forgot to do but yeah very spy racers no right now With sixty four percent reporting we have Bernie Sanders in the lead. A twenty five point nine percent state it is well. Vermont. I unfortunately for you. John what I know you have. We all getting political here on the show but in the in the past you have made Reference Multiple Times to one Andrew Yang. I have and I'll have to say is I'm sorry for your loss. Andrew Gang has dropped out of the presidential ringlets as of a couple of hours ago. Are you serious absolutely a true thin no idea that is absolutely true thing? Andrew Yang as as as of a couple hours ago dropped out of the presidential race Andrew Yang yet one hour ago. Really Yep man this blows my Dick off and so I'll have to say to the Yang Gang as you know. I'm sorry for your loss Universal basic income is absolutely conversation we need to have and I was glad he brought some cultural limelight to it. But apparently it's not happening quite yet. Yeah Andrew Young brought up the conversation. Uba which is definitely important if you WANNA give an extra thousand dollars to your landlord but now as more things get automated like these these blue collar jobs like people are GonNa need subsidization. Yeah but I think the the answer to that isn't going to own their homes. I think the answer to that is not I think that you'd be. I is an over simplification of things are getting automated. We have less need for actual workers. Universal basic income is kind of a stopgap saying within the mechanisms of capitalism. This is a way to make people who are no longer viable workforce. This is a way to bring the floor up. So people aren't made to live on the streets because technology advances too fast. I just want money I think the actual answer is technology is going to advance to fast. At which point we need to find ourselves a system outside of capitalism and outside of the need to give someone additional thousand dollars okay. So what's more likely? Universal basic income gets passed or we find system outside of capitalism and transition to we as Americans I don't know it's tough to say But recipes injury. There's only one thing to say. See you in twenty twenty four Yang Gang Support Bernie. The only thing they can do. I don't WanNa make any decisions for anybody. I'm going to tell him anybody to to support any candidate or anything. I'm just saying seeing twenty twenty four. Yes He tweeted. Ready for back for the eggs. So you boomer Yankee coming back so that all you need the police you need to write an email to him with just that boomer or boots and then don't even signing or anything. Yeah just like offer that up to free to his campaign and they'll say is this the sponsorship for the video of this other cat that sounds like and saying. Oh Hi yes like no we actually unfortunately share the same email to have the same email address same age same every really the cats the top earner of that agency has a real astle. Well Yeah but you can't say that we were. We read the same agency. No I know this a- he gets all the good spots anyway. We get no spots because we are not cat. We're not cats is a OH anyway. In addition to the New Hampshire Primary. Which by the way people to judges do surprising? Which is a shame. Because he's a rat now if we're looking at other important things to happen. It's not cool thing. Non-political things larger non-political the Ninety Second Academies Oscars Awards took Place Beautiful Burbank California. A IDEA NEITHER. I said nonpolitical but like the Oscars are very political. Yeah their whole thing is kind of like politics especially lately where they're trying to to make up for so many years of of racism and sexism. Yeah they're trying to make up for so many years years such as twenty two. You know. They're not getting it right right away. It doesn't expect somebody to quit smoking. Goals urging yes. They are addicted. It's so it's so important to say yes. We are making up for mistakes such as the mistake we are currently make. Isn't that the nature of light the weird apology circuit that a bunch of like celebrities? Go on they mess up they apologize. They continue to make the mistake apologize. They spoke at cast and big movies. They apologize listened. Life's a journey and all you can do is fund. The documentary tells people how you're right Kevin Hart about how he would wanNA cheated on his wife. Oh I thought documentary about how he cheated on his wife a funded the documentary to make him look good but wait the bad part of his thing. I thought yeah. Yeah that was. I thought so in the car was amazingly not brought up in the context of my mind. I thought you were referring to his comments about being the son of a Sunkei Madison Sexual. No and you said he funded a documentary. The shepherd eight crazy documentaries like yes. I wouldn't be not refuting the problem with proving that what he said was true. There's like a slow. Npr close up on his eyes. And there's just there's just audio from another Vor as I did say. Did you say that I did say that? Did you mean it? I get mentoring. Incredible Academy Awards a real barn burner. Hannah if you can say that anymore. I think that's offensive against people. Think it's offensive against William Faulkner Bar Burning Barn burning now. I don't know where we can start with the Oscars. I don't know I don't even know what I want to talk about. Because for the first time in recent years I was actually okay with all of the winners. This was a fundamental see change in the Oscars to me because almost every year when I watched the Oscars at it reinforces in my mind that it is a diseased institution that doesn't need to exist because they repeatedly year after year after year on a gradient but pretty much always they give awards to movies that do not deserve it yeah they put on a half-hearted unenjoyable spectacle which you know in kind of the same this year as spectacle goes. We did talk over a lot of the bits we did. Some of the bits were good. Good job going host Louis. Speaking of Kevin Hart or whatever. Is it really count as going host list of your disc and a half of many hosts you have a bunch of Comedians? Who Do like they do bits that you jokes. And you're not saving any time because the chokes keep going keep going so This Oscars was made the first Oscars I've ever seen where every victory for the most part. I totally understood and agreed with. Yeah it was. It was great even awards. I didn't really care about because I do to the nominations like I felt like maybe they were stronger. performances out there but apparently not the the people voted for that. Shit disagreed with me But still even like for like I don't know even when Renee Zellweger woman for best actress for Judy or whatever Sided really care but I couldn't fault. Her based on who else was in the category that makes sense yeah. She completely transformed herself into. Judy Garland. Yes I mean. That is an amazing if acting supposed be amazing feats of light becoming someone else that. Yadda she she she did it. Whereas the other people barely skin and Of course the biggest news out of the Oscars parasite swept. I don't have a list of all the categories in front of me but best picture best director best original screenplay best foreign language film among others. I believe was a total of four four. Okay that's all you named all look at a you did it. A total four Oscars for a movie that tragically we never really got it together to a supplemental reading of even though we both considered to be a fundamentally important film for last year no it was hugely important as it came out. Well see the weird thing is like. We saw two different times. 'cause like it was in theaters for months. Yes and like a still in theaters now and I. I saw it twice but I did. I didn't quite know I don't quite know how to talk about it It's a film that honestly I feel like talking about it or writing about a dozen a disservice. You gotta go see it and I don't know how I don't know how else took it is an experience. It is a tour of force of so many great things and contributes to a a genre film that I WANNA call like detail oriented film. Were pieces are laid out. That are like every piece. Your show is going to come back later but other than saying by that sentence and saying you need to see it. I don't know what else to say about it other than it's good. It's it's phenomenal. It's phenomenal movie. That absolutely deserved to win out of a year and film. That was very good. We this was a very strong film. You and I don't know if it's if it's because since moving to Austin and being experienced a more films like I don't know if it's because I saw more films I thought it was particularly strong or if the movies themselves were strong it felt like twenty nineteen was a good year for Cinema. But if you look at the Oscars and how they determine who gets to go see like the same six movies in your Cadillac. Is that really all that came out this year. Now of course you injure movies the no one saw your nineteen seventeen or two popes. Your lighthouse your lighthouse. Like us is good but my my primary takeaways is that the narrative that we kept The narrative that we kept seeing throughout the night outside of your Joe. Joe Rabbits is There were really three big movies in the cultural consciousness. You have your parasite. You're her big winner. You've you're and these are also the the movies that I would typically considered to be your best of twenty nineteen. Yeah and they're only what I would consider. And God what was the third one hold on e e said parasite in big winner but big winners in the second film. No parasite was the big winner. So what did he say? Why is the third one? What's the second one now? The second one is joker. Okay Parasite Jersey gangrene seventeen. No no no I'm show. No God pose the other big twenty nineteen move IOS GonNa say knives out o mine's at one. Any words was going to say. It's my topic movies and also as far as movies like at the top of the cultural conscious are I was following a train of thought. Oh yeah you were on a different rate I was. I wasn't even saying the right thing because there's desperately trying to remember those wanted to talk about knives out The most interesting movies to be of the year Were joker knives out parasite all written into their DNA critiques of class and class conscious movies. Here's what I was GONNA say. Those movies are things that I'm given hope for will exist in the future. I know you're saying that the parasite is gives you peace. Is this made budget kind of thriller? This made the budget small scope kind of movie. I want so badly for those to be the future going forward. Because as we've discussed amasses a empirically provable. Marvel movies are over. They ended the last one was called veggies and game. Yeah I wouldn't call it in came and then make another movie. That doesn't make any sense. You saw endgame not begin movie. Yeah seriously Marvel movies are now over. Your massive Superhero blockbusters are over. Give us a mid budget weirdo thrillers. That make us feel uncomfortable. Give me a conspiracy movie in the vein of the question and I will sign up. They could be renamed on Toy. It could be the original the question. I do not care. Keep the all I asked for the question and nothing else so the thing that I think is. There was a very a pessimistic. Tweet about what happened. Let me see if I can find. I relate it to you with the Oscar party but let me see you can either vamp for time or give me a clap for at it. I'll van for time. Oh I said that but then I I think I had things to say in response to what you're saying but now it's it's I want films to be fun to watch again not in line. Got It sorry. I feel like whenever. Here's the thing whenever you throw someone to vamp absolutely hundred percent of the like I got the the the the same happened to people can't vamp when they think they can vamp so you think you could vamp puts actually saying what. Okay go ahead. Sorry I did not mean to know you found the we So there was a there was a tweet. I actually didn't find the tweet. But I found that context photos going to say don't Gal The summary of the tweet was I badly hope the parasite winning big at the Oscars will let the American people know that. There's a lot of meat on your mid budget thriller and that this will significantly change the American filmmaking landscape But what I truly believe will happen. Is that Congo? Song will just be the bad guy. Eight-man three yeah wizard. Really Funny Twenty. I also very accurate. I genuinely believe that will happen. They will just find someone from parasite and give them a hundred million dollars to be laying shitty marvel movie and it's exactly what producers do go like. Oh who's hot right now? So parasite just won best picture so fascinated me that they could say that and not understand why they are hot for that reason. It's because all these producer people and I don't mean to put them on blast right now but they all sort of failed upward into their job. They don't really know why movies are popular they think. Oh it's the celebrities. Yeah so take. A for instance take doolittle Moore like oh just promote how many celebrities are in this movie. People will go see it and then like it's screen tested poorly Drop a January will write it off as a loss and get a tax break. Now what's in right now? Oh big celebrities. Lot of celebrities in a movie May animated Let's make A. I don't know that kid played Spiderman and will Smith maybe he turns into a pigeon. I Dunno have amalgamated. Yeah that's the movie. Yeah well At some point when they're making that movie like will Smith in it. He's a person of color old test. Well in certain markets turn him into a bird hurt him into a birth burbs or big. You seem hitchcock hitchcock. He had this whole Al's. How did they not capitalize more war movie? Can we make birds? Two executive producers are dumb very and do a little is so perfectly example that because they said Oh what properties. We have Dr Doolittle sure who do people like iron man? Let's get all these birds is in. There's an EMU whose voice by Goto Yard should we get to reduce directed? The Guy who did Syria sure by kid legs command on Johnny. Could he be like an ostrich make him an ostrich that is that is what do little as? I know that they're going to try to do that. With the people attach site. We're going to see them in some pretty bad films absolutely no fault of their own. Well so we we might see them castle out of bad films but also we know that Hollywood does not like casting Asian people so it might be this weird confluence where Hollywood just blows up. Where a bunch of executive producers want badly to cast these famous Asian people? Hollywood has a whole like oh no. We can't cast Asia people. It's really funny that you bring that up because a so. I think it might have been two years ago crazy. Rich Asians came out but by the way. Is this called crazy rich? Yep they added Asians for the movie so people would understand what they were giving. Yes anyway I saw. It was really decent movie. I actually kind of enjoyed it. I don't think it was like you don't need too much because I saw it in quite liked it. Yeah what I'm going to say is like I realized for some reason we kept seeing movie me and my wife kept seeing movies that I would suggest. Now I WANNA get a Winters I wanted to the movies but I want to see a movie. That is a guest. She's what about crazy rotation? So why not? Let's do it and it was successful if they make money at the box office. We'll just like the only sort of like standard for make for like if a movie is good or not to these people. Yeah that's the only way to tell if it's a success and so naturally the book is part of the series all right we do the next we do the next we do. The next one is the movie. Yeah and they are only. They're having a lot of trouble putting it together. I think is like the skip the same director yeah get the same actors get the same screenplay people but for some reason the screenplay people is like a white guy and an Asian girl And because of the way Hollywood contracts work he had like a more movies under his belt so he got paid a lot more and she didn't have as many movies even though like she did the first one and so she was getting paid less and the guy was like this is wrong. I'd I'm willing to basically share my pay check with you because you're doing much work as I am. And she was like no. This is kind of bullshit. Because they're only putting me on this script so they can say that an agent person worked on the script on out and now the movies like not coming out anymore and it's kind of like you. All you had to do was make a sequel. That's what you love to do. How is the seller Toyota dealers? Pay People appropriately. You could've made the sequel that you love so much it's sensible. Yeah it's like. Oh we can't cast the nation people we can't even make a sequel to Asian movie doesn't even like all of this collect the bats I mean. It's it's very difficult to region to analyze the pervasive problem. The Hollywood has with with casting. Asian people So there's an article that I want to find out in advance for tenant I ran for all I wanNA say. Is that how I got? So there's this new. There's this article in the Times called parasite one but Asian Americans are still losing. I recommend reading it and also where can people find that article of The New York Times? Okay and if you've already used up your a New York Times Free Reeds for the month us at incognito Brad Zuber who's incognito browser or use the roller APP where you put in a url and extracts all the taxes have just gives it to you. That's pretty awesome. Yeah so I would read that if you want a little bit of insight into the systemic racism problem that is happening in Hollywood especially our and particularly against Asian people and it's been happening for relent. Yes there there's no demographic has asked like could you do a voice. Are you willing to do a voice more so than Asian actors? 'cause you can you somewhere you know. Yeah yeah it doesn't matter like Chinese Indian Vietnamese South Korean. It's all like could you be more of your demographic yes it's like American it's I'm I was born and raised in New York. It's fascinating backward but pairs identity big not to take it away from it but just remind because parasite one that does not mean. The Hollywood has ameliorated with Asian still task for it. Why it doesn't mean that Hollywood has learned anything because he just turn the dial back. A year in Green Book Won Best Picture. Yeah what the fuck they get one right forgetting one very wrong. Yes Sammy might parasite was a really great movie. And it's great on merits. It's not great just because it has its Korean people in it or anything like that. It's it's how films should be made. And this is the point I've been ramping up to. I want films to be smart engaging enlight captivating again I I don't want spectacle Erlich all sizzle and no substance or something like that. I like every every facet of that movies perfectly sculpted for that movie and when even more movies that are Perfection yes nights out was really good in. It does allowed similar things it turns John. Ron Its head in like knives out is a movie of its own. Sort of ilk parasites the same and I. I'm going to argue for the Canadian film Ready or not did vis to. Yes and so. It's not great year Phil. It's not difficult to do. It's just I feel like sometimes people get lazy or they go for the spectacle to go for all. We put ashes and seats. Michael Bay. Can you know you like explosions and brought you into this explosion to now? Can you make the explosions? I don't know bigger and movies like that. Have a place but that place is not the the largest grossing movies the movies that we should be making your movies that are made with love meticulously. Something that I so I have been watching through all the ball. Jin Ho's movies not all love but you know the big ones like post. The host Snow Piercer. Mother memories of Murder Oak Aja. Okay I don't. I haven't finished doktor to Netflix. I know but I've learned the lessons. Evoked Gel ready. I don't eat up. Just listen John. We all heard we all heard Joaquin Phoenix's speech but that doesn't mean we're all good people now. All of a sudden Lewis Adjust because walking except the milk is bad doesn't mean a year life choices are any blessed are good. I'm just as good as walking. Phoenix the best among us Cancel cultures also. Come at me now though. It is There was nothing incorrect. About the fact that people are saying his speech was bad when there was nothing incorrect the fact that people are saying his speech was bad when there was nothing incorrect he said he said pervasive. Cancel CULTURE IS BAD. No one has the right of supremacy over any other living being and then he ended with a quote from his dead brother that he gets visibly choked up at the fact that people are taking down for this not like actually treating this as one of the Best Oscar Acceptance Speeches at history is insane to me that there was a minor. Twitter spat a for some reason. People comparing Joaquin Phoenix's awards acceptance speech with res L. WINGERS. And it's like well that's doesn't actually solve anything. Either Yeah I. It's third time receiving award in a very high pressure. Like you're in front of imagine your front of everyone in your industry and you have to like give up one minute and thirty seconds speech and you have to not sound like an idiot. Remember to thank everybody to shut up. Yeah just let's attacker speeches. It's hard walk into a job But I've been watching through his movies on. I was watching mother which might be my favorite of his movies. That the one where he hates America No that's the host are whoopsie and Kinda Snow Piercer But if you watch mother this only somewhat problematic about it I guess. I don't know that problematic is even useful in In the lexicon anymore but essentially an actor who is knocked mentally challenged play mentally challenged character. Well I think but whatever budget people who've done that but mothers very good. But I was reading a review of mother on Ron Tomatoes and one of the which Doco that hell website would you but one of those planning ones while the bad ones said that It's so tiresome that Bombed June hose movies. No matter the subject matter are always inexplicably sad. He can't seem to make a feel-good movie. I'm like That is though the thinnest weakest criticism. And that's a conversation. I had with Allison after watched is she said. Every one of this person's movies that I've seen I feel like every emotion. I feel happy and there are moments. That are hilarious and sometimes. I feel deeply sad. Yeah and none of those feelings go away after I watched them. I'm like exactly you can watch mother and I think that mother has one of the funniest things I've ever seen in it. There is a very funny perfectly constructed. Seen there's also a deep per vase disturbing vein of sadness in that movie and the thing is a life and in movies. Both those days can exist at the same time you. You don't have to make. I know Iraq marvel movies a lot. But you don't have to make a superhero movie every time where at the end of the movie. It's only object objectives to make you feel good and walk out of the theater and release it from your brain into the author because it gave you your Catharsis and it's all gone now. You don't have to do that if you make good movies. They can make they do. Make you sad. Good works of art do embody a huge range of human emotions as they should. If you make something as one note I mean. Is it even worth watching or viewing some of the best comedies? Have some of the darkest moment because you can't have one without the other? Yeah you eat by. Having this does multitude of emotions is what makes it good and so the person so low. You can't make a feel good movie. I guess you're who how this is going to sound terrible coming out of my mouth. I guess you're who Adam Sandler foams are for all out of Salafist magnificent six or what the Netflix one specifically i? I don't know man. Bongino is good. Hits from the Bong hits the ball out of the parasite one but it has awakened a really disgusting conversation. A across film. People are the ones that we said. Yeah Yeah and also people who have to be of a class because the only thing we can talk about everything should be about class. There is a huge huge class problem in the world. It's not even like you just one nation. I mean the only way one can look at art Ed history is through emerges perspective. And that's just understand. The class conflict is at the heart of all conflict. Yeah I also saw weird Spattering on the Internet of people who were mad. The joker didn't win best picture but like way too mad. Yeah like mad in a way that you might think they would take action this. This is what they warned against. A as many people have seen being mad about joker didn't win. I've I've also seen a weird resurgence of like the bad spin on like so. Many guys are mad. That joker didn't win best picture. Now it's tagging somebody who's being just rampantly misogynist. Yeah and again. You missed the point of the movie. Yup this is helpful. And it's not funny and I know you might be going for like a weird comedy. Vied one person in particular rely on our twitter feed I'm calling out but not naming but like just kinda drop it. The movie wasn't for you. You didn't like it mets. Good don't perpetuate stupid thoughts in jokes. That don't help the movie yeah. The movie was about mental illness. If else jokers fine I feel like jokers a very good movie but also there are a lot of people for whom they can't let go of it being a model of something that they're insecure about. I saw a another headline was like now that Joaquin Phoenix one is Oscar kids. The joker be fun again. It's like I'll just show arrays of hand. I have a question. When was the joker? Ever Fun win. Will they bring back that character that made all the jokes? Joker the yeah. Historically a character has never been fun. Even even as animated like what are they called portrayals even as enemy portrayals are like dark and creepy. Yes because he's the fucking joker jerkers not supposed to be fun sorry all the best portrayals of the joker not fun just because he was voiced by Mark Hamill and Marquette Mobile Mark Hamill. Now you're Mark Hamill Mark. Campbell is lovable. Yes I can see. Why said doesn't even his jokers creepy and it's supposed to be no one left like that. No one else can laugh. Listen I'm just saying now that the two popes wants Oscar. Can the pope be funny again? Yeah Yeah I didn't want anything. Fuck them both. Why I think the Azures did take a stand against movies featuring old white men talking for way too long good as the Irishman one. Nothing the two popes one. Nothing that's the amount of runway had for this joke. Bhagat IT I. Here's the people aren't really talking about. I do like that Bomb joon-ho took time out of his acceptance speech to thank people like Martin Scorsese and the other nominees for giving him a backbone of creating film because Bongino is two things he does treat award ceremonies and the Oscars. Like a ludicrous circus. Which makes him magnetic in that hit. He called him a local award show. Yes I really enjoy that. Because he said it's not just about Oscars and he does like getting an Oscar. Yeah but also more importantly he does credit people that gave him inspiration to create movies. There's a yeah. There's a history that you can acknowledge while moving forward absolutely. I think he did that. I really liked the way he did that. He's like Oh. My Film Studies Book. There was a quote and then he's like that quote was from. Martin Scorsese in line. You know gave him Highlighted him and has his career. Yes kinda like yeah. You did great things for film so they'd like Alfred Hitchcock Spielberg at a time. And it's Kinda like Time keeps much in forward and to keep doing the same things you did at the beginning of your career at the end of your career. You might not get the accolades anymore. Because we've moved forward. We've gone beyond now. We want the next big thing early. We won't see Cinema done in a new way. Not the same way that you were doing it thirty years ago. Time is Doug for the crime man now. The class man cub were done with mobsters. Were done with big sharks. Sorry the MEG Ono. The actual one of at least five Oscars what makes me really sad about the cause. I was pretty happy overall but I do want to reiterate that adventures in game gave us the biggest cinematic moment in history and it gets nothing will maybe the of the century thus far of the last twenty years biggest I'm sorry and and then you're sinking. Kate was liberally. The Begley as it is actually literally the largest almond in cinematic history and it gets nothing. I feel like you can't give it to him. You can't you can't one. What do they need an Oscar for? I don't know that they're already. Winning people worked really Aukin. Money'll moneywise success. I guess people were really hard on the visual effects and I was the only thing that was nominated for. Yeah I mean they made an entire fucking army of CGI. If you want to get some real heads takes on it. There's I don't know what the Hashtag is. There's a significant number of people making very sincere tweets about how they believe avengers at game should have gotten best picture and they are making a lot of a pretty somewhat racist points about how a marvel movie should've won. Best Picture. It's pretty good. If it was last year I would argue one hundred percent that infinity war should've won over green book. Oh no doubt it'd be the two movies I'll take infinity Aurigny Day and infinity where I believe is is a stronger film out of the two anyway. Yeah but no not this year not this year fuck that after. I don't know what it's about the fuck it dad astronauts. I've heard the joke but yeah that's the Oscars. Yeah so I mean so. Why are we make jokes about a Asians Asians in women no case a while we pointed out that the digest cultural consciousness has this this? Boehner for saying that you know women in Asian Still Win Asians one and a bunch of women one that just no one cared about best score went to Helder. I can't say your last name. What Hilter Oh. I don't remember her name. I know but the best original score with two joker and the composer for that film is on. I am Scandinavian. Jn composer whose first name is held her and her last name has characters in it that do not chance later in English. No those a big win also very good score big showing for women at the Oscars red carpet a natalie. Portman did wear like a Cape with the names of a bunch of women who are nominated sewn into so it'd be really cool. If Natalie Portman production company would find any movies directed by living. I'm really glad you pointed that out because yeah absolutely so two of the producers for parasite were women funnily enough they cut the MIC. Should turn the lights out on one of the area and the audience crowd hobbyists use their collective clout to turn the lights back on. Yeah but yeah. Two of the producers for parasite were women. Make up and hair one by a woman. I mean I. I loved the cutting the lights because clearly whoever's running ask is do not to be important and they thought that was a bet. They'll like best picture. You get a minute yeah. Sorry Both Joaquin Phoenix and renee. Zellweger combined took off all of our time for best picture. It's been that way in the past. Two words like the only award were waiting for is best picture for some reason. It seems like they had the least amount of time. Yeah it's insane. Yeah anyway best. Actress was born by a woman. That's verse best. Supporting actress was won by a woman. This was the joke. I it's a pretty good joke. I Dunno industry is stupid and it's in. The midst of chains can expect results right out of the gate but one thing we can kind of ask for is like in your weird plea for like feminism and stuff don't do we're double standard things were. You're saying you'RE GONNA start a fight club and then say the men can join. But they have to be shirtless. Yeah that was a weird joke. Kinda miss the mark. A lot of the jokes are waiting. Miss the Mark Natalie. Portman support women. Yeah it's like Natalie support women and I get it I get it Natalie Portman at least I get a very funny joke also. Why did you bring? We wanted to kill Anikin. That was so not cool of you. She was in Star Wars. Assist revenge of the seth. Let's stop paying lip service to these things and start paying fists service. No I actually do stuff like he said Natalie Portman Production Company hire women to work with yeah actresses who are given lines. That scene like they're not for equality refused to say the lines. I think you have that power. Don't don't cut prom women from your star wars movies. You can put your buddy from lost in it. Yeah don't do that. Yeah exactly don't do that. Don't do that. It's simple to do it like it's so easy to do the actions. I actually think that there is a simple rallying. Cry that we can get behind. All of this boils down to so we've been titled a lot about supporting women but if we're talking about the pay disparity between the writers of crazy rich Asians if we're talking about Natalie Portman is company not producing movies directed or written by women if we're talking about People getting cut off star wars movies. Men can take their place. It's not support women. It's twenty twenty pay women women pay women. It's simple all you have to do is pay as much as somebody else. What's crazy is like this is going to be the year of women directed lead in produced. Superhero movies where we're starting out with birds of prey. The internals is another. One in black widow is another one. And you gotta go to the films. You gotta go the gathered under the phones people if you want support Weltman Cho to the film's their birds appraised. Good there's no reason for only made thirty five million domestically worldwide made a lot more. Yeah and it's like weirdly because it only made thirty five million in America is labeled as a flop we're added as it's already earned back. Its production costs worldwide. Making it not a flop change the narrative they have. You heard that they're changing the name to what it's no longer gonNA be birds of prey and the fantabulous cement and momentum patient one Harley Quinn. It's now going to be called for some reason Harley Quinn Coal in birds of PREY DUMB. I know I really liked the law. Original name was very good. Yeah but people are like all I guess it will. They don't understand Harley Quinn's in the movie because the marquee only says birds of prey the key and obviously Harley. Quinn is like the selling point of the movie. 'cause it's she was in a quinter deal. Can we murder Hollywood? I kinda want to but murders illegal murders illegal at least under this president by the way Bernie Sanders still believe Bernie Sanders abolish student debt. Make death legal. How many how? Many amity presenting Just a couple of percentage points having Peter still tied in delegates Slamet. How many add percent reporting? Oh seventy five who shit. Yeah he's probably GonNa Take New Hampshire not as by not by astronomical margins. I want him to because we gotta get a delegate lead to really get momentum going to South Carolina Nevada have a hell. Is Buddha chick like polling? So well are doing so well. I don't know he's Iraq. I don't know we can't get into it. I can't we're also pretty much out of time. We are now officially out of time. Which means since you already you WANNA take that again. Like coherently okay. So I'LL GET A. I'll get a clean take. That's right and signed that in the since you're really meal are so. Hollywood execs weirdly at the beginning of this episode. We call for them to get in touch with us to like work with them to make the fast and furious movies but then we yelled at him for like a solid half hour. Yeah come pay us. You'll pay pigs. I don't I don't. Are you trying to fit down? Yes no we. With our script for vast furious ten highway to hell and fast and furious ten colon ten to furious heaven coal explosions in the sky.

Have I covered the bulk of your movie career. That's my boy I was in that talkline did the bash brothers Bash. Brothers is a piece of content. I don't think it's a film. I think it counts as a film. You think it's a film. Yeah a twenty minute film. Sure sure film is a competing or did it compete or was it. Eligible for the Emmy's it was eligible for the Oscars short film. It was now ami's I didn't get shit. Welcome back to the show. One of our oldest friends Andy Sabota- for T. S. T. S.. Eliot I I understand. Thank you tough. Shit Elliott Please explain all jokes to me if they ever pop up during the show and I'm not saying they will I but if anything anything humorous happens welcome back to the show. So it's good to see you. I'm looking right at you and I saw you the other a day rate goods store in the office that we share but which I'm hardly ever there and you're hardly ever there. We're we're barely ever there. But it's wonderful when we cross paths it is it's like hey look at that guy. Companies remember him and UH Brooklyn nine nine is coming up. You're on Thursdays the Thursday night block. That's right yeah the home of the cosby show the new cosby show. Oh yeah that too. That's the end of the list. That's our peer group in every way welcome Peacock Peacock Bromo. You're going to be on that peacock coming up the peacock is a streaming service I believe. NBC's P Cock streaming isn't it l. l.. Like how did they run that through any test group to say like. Hey we're GONNA put two words that have to do with with say tits. I mean Dick's but I guess Dick's go allante. It's I don't know how does sex work. Jesus Christ I think I mean look. We're talking about it. You know you know what I mean. They've got our yeah peacock. It's got all the sex. It's something that's in it and then the thing that it is you know how network sitcoms are sects. Excel nonstop poundage. Speaking of which Brooklyn nine nine you you got married to a a amy is editor named Jake got married. No you got married a came Andy. I play a character named Jake. I take this seriously. Scott Peralta right. Yeah how was that. How how did that name get settled on? Did you have to run that by people did you. I think Gore Gore inch and make sure already had it ready when they as ready to go to the show and I stress. How the oven and I said I like it because Reminded me escape boards. Oh in what way Pal Peralta Alta elaborate stacy. Peralta Skater continue. They formed a company. Paul Drought says that is some sort of a skateboard company. Yeah Okay Ed look. I know you're not a joke. But a lot of skaters don't like sports either. You should be friends with them off. Okay I guess. The skaters are like the dropouts in the losers of the hall l.. When we were young? But now it's like X.. Game so yeah exactly. Yeah it's different Peralta what about Jake though Jake. It's Chinatown it's less than it's less weight. The name Jake is less than less than jake less than Jake Better Than Ezra. Hey Lesson Jake better than there should be a ban that comes out right in the middle of those two is just like hey seven seasons in how is it like what new things are coming up on the horizon of this show or you adding characters of course so you got rid of Chelsea oddly phrased but she is not in the cast anymore. So do you like do you need someone to to fill that vacuum or or at this point is every character talk to each other or are you constantly being like. Hey wait a minute. The Serge's never talked to this guy over here. Why don't we do a scene between the two of them we've done our share of cross pollinating characters certainly There's been more hitchcock in scully. Happily to the best and it gives us the opportunity to do more stuff with with the other characters. There's more space right. Do you have you how how. How few days have you gotten down to the? You'll shoot for episode man. I wish I could say like one or two but it ended up. Being last year was pretty pretty grinding for me. There's a lot of episodes this year. The whole cast is together the whole time really. Those are tough to shoot therapy. which yet but they're also fun and wasn't the the issue on the ninety ninth episode? I would like all of you. Were together the entire. Yeah the ninety ninth was not fun to shoot but turned out really really well. But it's it's very tough to to have everyone there at the same time. There's a scene in the nineteen th episode. Where Andre and is characters thank you? It's not us in the show are having a conversation when everyone's asleep the whole squad. Quad is asleep on the floor in the same room and during the course of shooting that scene multiple cast members actually fell asleep and started snoring. That's the dream and we. I had to like wake people up. I wish I could have slept on my show. There was a grip who who literally. I was in the middle of an interview and suddenly I heard snoring directly behind me. It was like could someone wake up. Please it's getting in the way of the Improv. But you remember who the guest was on the show. I don't remember. It was one of those things I just could not believe. It was happening that loud snoring. I was like the reviews are in surreal. So can you hype anything. That's happening the season. Give me something to hold onto. I mean the the viewers loved the show one of the best shows on TV. That's just a light of an ray of sunshine every every single week every single Thursday replacing the cosby show in our memories. It's it's a hoot overseas overseas. Yeah I watched every APP you know yeah is it. Producers contractually obligated heavily involved in the editing process and therefore I've seen every episode multiple times You know you constantly saying like. Can we favour my good side on the on this angle or are you. Are you like. Hey Look we've seen my bang on this. It took until season six. I WanNa say before I was like I look like shit in the shot. Only police use a different angle but it took really six years before I said because that's not your personality. You you want everything you want to be nice guy. Yeah I gen- generally think I look great right okay. So you didn't think you look terrible until season season six just getting older. That's correct started getting old. Yeah Oh man are a your approximately sixty three at the three and a quarter. I still count the quarter. You're so good. She never too old to count the Gordon Decor. Is that as you know. Oh it's just like an old Jewish guy wants his money thing that's thing to say right so no answer from Scott. I have no opinion on what's cool to say what's not not cool to say I. It's going to constantly change people listening to this in ten years. We'll be like they shouldn't have talked about any of this. I'm assuming who are you rooting for Joe Rabbits Scott. Hi the girl. The girl hiding in the wall you were the hiding in the wall one. Yeah those were beautiful shoes. Whoever got to whoever tipped shoes off somebody came purloined them? Yeah someone really scored on those shoes. I really so you don't know what happens in the season. You just think it's a wonderful wonderful wonderful season. No no it. Picks up where left off halt has been demoted and. He's having a lot of trouble adjusting to his his new position in the police. Force and wait. Can you say what his new position. Yes I think. He's like a uniformed officer. Oh Yeah went from from captain to demoted all the way down all the way to. That's below you guys guys because you guys donor. Imagine like they're dynamic is completely turned on its head. That's I I mean I. I have not seen that on the show correct because that dynamic has been has stayed the of course throughout six seasons at this point and now for the seventh. You're saying it's turned on its head. Correct wow I would I want to say that it stinks but it's it's actually pretty good. I've watched it was there. But you WANNA say the. WHO's that who the hell? It's been me all along long lamp over there. Nick Kroll the entire time. Ed Krol from MMA. Let's go through your filmography. You got the basketball one others and the two guys. It's such such a pleasure to be back. If feels so good to be bad. You crawl from big mouth taking a little time away from the big mouth writer's writer's room. Am I correct in that assumption. You are deep. You're very correct. Correct News even that correctness. What I was enjoying was Being like how many episodes of Brooklyn nine have you watched got have I watched I. I would say approximately sixty nine of of of ninety of of a current ninety nine. No it's probably at a hundred and forty some around up there. Yeah I I would say the majority. It's yeah the preponderance I would say. Scott texts me and says I saw the episode when this happened and I go. He's really watching. You really is. I believe I. I once texted you shipping you and amy and you said what is that and I explained the concept of shipping to you. Yeah appreciate it all the way every definition from from ups and then I moderated a panel and so I watched that so nick. Yeah unfortunately unfortunately more than big mouth I would say that's fair. Big Mouth Your what two seasons in that have aired or three Three airs there'd there'd three have aired and we're we're deep into. Where would you say balls? Deep deep we are we are way ahead of what is has aired aired already really. Yeah Yeah Yeah. What are you working on writing season five right now? Holy yes so it takes a long time to actually have the this show come out. Yeah why is that Anna like are you drawing everything to draw everything myself. That's why I'm such perfectionist. I understand that I insist on drawing all myself myself. I cannot draw Brooklyn nine nine. Big Mouth Crossover episode. Where like those? I see there's these cop characters on on big mouth all the time committer drawn exactly like me and it's so funny they're a cop characters. We've was a little bit. They're they're cap- characters on big mouth that that do. And when someone pointed out look like Scott and Paul Tomkins in reality they are modeled there modeled after crews and they're yeah they're yeah yeah exactly Dennis Farina and David Caruso and they somehow now exactly like us and people are constantly like. Why are you doing the voices? I guess. WHO's doing the voices mullany? And Neil Casey. Oh man those guys get fucking everything so but I'm saying there are some cop characters are sold. What if there's a little crossing that'd be fun? You know what I mean Farina Caruso I know and get them. Oh Rina's gone to that. His police station up in the sky and Russo. He's also said at the very appreciative. Respectful of you to talk about another way. I didn't now don't. TV COPS stick together. Yes what about real cops. How do you feel about? The show is great. They're bringing that back doc aren't they. Yeah probably they're bringing it all back Malays in it. He's everything he they're bringing back Reno. Yeah they're bringing back they bring back everything the rematch. NYPD blue collar while they tried to shot a pilot today. Yeah with Francis grandson character but yeah everything will come back. I'm sure at some point comedy. Bang Bang get the call and I'll rise the occasion just like Rambo. We need you back. I'm not that guy anymore. The first one beautiful with a real political message the second four next for just killing his killers murdering have you met Stallone Never Have you met stallone. I haven't I do I do him on the show. Yeah I what I would good. You know what I really want to do is I want to do you remember the rocky versus Rambo script that I wrote in Harris whittles roads and cool up and Paul Rust Neil Campbell in my cassidy. We watch all three Rambo movies one day and then we beat out Iraqi versus Rambo Script in fifteen minutes and then we all split up and wrote twenty pages of peace. I remember this And the script is really funny. I would love to do a reading of or man reading well I would love to do it either. I do I love to get stallone and you sure do and there's a video of stallone. Do you want them to do at the update desk. Yes of course if we get the update desk the stallone There's a video on him. I follow me on Instagram. And there's a video of him on instagram. Where he's like he's got Pacino coming into to his house? He's like a great but Pacino's like is not ready to be on camera and he's like dealing with the hair is today they walk into the kitchen. It's Guy Fieri I've seen and it's like two titans just love. It thinks that always. I think he's fine with it to titans pitching heads doncaster. Yeah I've been read nor seen any interviews with Pacino like getting into his head space process like what does he. What does he like all day? Big Yeah Jeans Jeans. I saw him now at a few awards. Things this this run. He has a thin scarf that is constantly lopsided. Sided right that he's trying to fix. What is the purpose of the scarf? Is it to most scarves. Aco To cover the neck. It's not it's too thin. It's just like it's unclear clear. It's he's he's made. He's been rocking for a long time. Since maybe Frankie Jining like with him with depth there becomes a thing with certain actors who are like the more things I where the more. He's peacocking Marcis Peacock. Yes by the way I like that. It's peacock this streaming service is like unreal the never ending. Yeah you're going to go out there hard for peacock. Always you repin peacock this fall companyman is I saw those. Hulu commercials virgils save for Peacock. I'll do whatever it takes. Yeah yeah got to sell them. TIKKI TIKKI them shows. Yeah but what. So so. He's wearing the scarf. And then Pacino and I felt like watching Deniro and him. I don't know if you guys watching this stuff. They've been on the run for all this stuff feel like Deniro just as sort of like leading Pacino. Talk himself out. I think he can barely talk at this point Deniro. Yeah really I think he i. I don't I don't want I don't want to speculate on what's going on with him but I think he's just like I think he's been they've been head to head for so long. I think it's a cycle. I'm GonNa let Pacino GonNa let the genes run with. It sounds better if you could see the face. Cows me because it's good to narrow face yeah but anyway a Pacino. He looks great. And here's what's weird is when a Pacino okay. He starts to wear the scarf in real life and then he goes he he meets with the costumer of every movie. He does he goes I this scarf at the ready and he puts into his movies do is he wearing the scarf in the movie wears them in the movies as well. It's wrapped tight or can you still we'll see because usually it's like around the back of his neck and he started like doing this right right right. That's been since the nineties. Yeah yeah since like is it like scent of a woman center woman they would wear this carver yes like D- do you. You have things with acting like some actors are like they WANNA hold. They always are holding some. Do you have your little business. Are you a proctor. I once I became a proxy prop actor i. I started actually getting good because I wasn't just like looking at the at the other actor the whole time. Yeah you know what I mean. It's like you get a little business and then suddenly you seem a little a lot more real. I just stand in one spot and stare down the barrel. Yeah I try not to get it too complicated because then you can cut out anything. Yeah right yeah must be your yeah. You're you're in the business of keeping that day short and efficient efficient. I'm officially with minds if the jokes good don't matter yeah. Don't need to be eating pit style. Oh my God I when I was on Andrea savage show. I'm sorry the first scene shot or something was at dine her. I was like okay. I'll we're supposed to be eating some Pi. I didn't think about it. I didn't realize realized how many takes we were going to be fair. I think we did. Maybe twenty five takes or something They told me at the end of the scene that I'd eaten to complete apple pies because I didn't match it. I had to match what I did on that I take the whole time. I never even horrible often have food in front of me. Yeah Oh yeah I made a couple a couple of big early on in the league. It was like what do you drink at the bar named dry and not a big deal Truly has turned out to be seven. When's that coming back? Everyone loves it. I don't know I don't know I made the choice very early. On of like My character drinks vodka sodas and so I just drink like clubs soda at the Bar Dr. Everyone else was drinking like red wine and beer and they were just in. It's like red wine is like like I concentrate grape juice I'm like no no no no my character has that show Biz. No hope that my character has scruff and he drinks and he plays basketball and he plays basketball. Whenever again? He wears a scarf. Only thing I would have changed. I would have said he plays baseball. Base- Kit Ball. Do you watch that movie. I have never receivers love to see it is funny. Good Ball and orgasmic both have super funny show over to your place. We'll do a double feature. Joanna Scott was that no okay. Whatever it's over? We probably shouldn't talk. Well this is exciting big mouth. Oh wait nick you you have something coming out that you WanNa talk about I do. I have This movie called Olympic Dreams. That I made at the fuck is that I remember when you told me but I We went to the Winter Olympics. I went with a cup away. I remember this you win. Yeah Yeah I'm about to explain it this guy you guys have an in so nobody needs to go. Guys has no okay well. Then let's check my phone. I went with a couple. Alexi Pappas and Jerry Return Sure Alexi is a summer Olympian. She was she's a long distance runner. She ran it Rio in the Olympics and they got a grant from the Olympic Committee to go shoot a movie inside of the Olympic Games And never been done before. Never been done before so we went to the Winter Olympics and we had full access carte blanche to every you sort of the athlete's village and the Dining Hall and the MED center and all the events that MED CENTER MED Center because my character is a volunteer dentist because there are these volunteer doctors then as Chiropractors who all like love the Olympics so they volunteer go and they get to go to the Games and and treat the athletes so the it was the two CASTRUCCI happening. Interestingly Alexi said at the summer Olympics a ton of the athletes get their dental work done. Because they're from countries countries there and so it's an opportunity for them to get medical and dental care but then they have to like run with the Novacaine mouth that's but they know but but in reality So the Winter Olympics a little less with dentists but Anyway so it's the three of us made the movie there's no crew. They so Jeremy Shot. It was the sound Guy We had no crew at all because we were literally inside of the Olympic. Amity shoot did on Saturday I forget. It's like a Sony It looks Greeley. Good shockingly good competent. Good company like Shotgun Mike on the camera or a camera shock on Mike and we were elected but we had a crazy long Remote Lava situation situation to pick up a distance because we would shoot. We'd be in like the athletes dining hall with like a thousand people and we'd be like forty like yeah cables away and he would be long lens and we would just be having a normal conversation. No one knows you're shooting. No one knows you're shooting. It was really crazy. You are in your character the whole time. Yeah I mean this movie movie when you watch it. You're it's you in character doing interacting marriage. Yes exactly so. They know they we weren't they weren't like you're cranking them no. We were pranking them but there there are moments in the movie were. Nobody knows that I'm who that I'm just asking for directions. It was completely legitimate. Like I was a real person and then run back can get a release. That's a good question I think we were. We tried to make sure we're on everyone's back does Olympia and just sign a blanket. Release for when you're in Olympia. and Um 'cause they're also used to being filmed for journalism like you know reporter stuff so that but we would all the other actors in the movie are Real Olympians. We're we're the only two people who everyone else's basically playing themselves including this Guy Gus Kenworthy. Who's a freestyle skier WHO's on now on American horror stories? One the two dudes who is came out or his gay openly gay at the Olympics Got A tiff with like Mike Pence in the middle of the games so it was crazy. 'cause we were it kind of literally like I'm dentists in the movie. I'm sort of interviewing. I'm giving like all these athletes dental exams but in reality I'm kind of interviewing them about their experience of the game like I was talking to this woman was like I just got here like two days ago and was the middle of the Games and she had basically not qualified and and then someone dropped out and she got a call in the middle of the games like hey. Can you fly from Belgium tomorrow. The next day she'd been like working out at all or she command. I'm and I'm not making it occurs hundreds of Kerr's So the circle so but it was. It was pretty wild and it was just ed because there was no crew we could kind of shoot anywhere and we were in the opening ceremonies. We were like in the right before all the athletes walkout into the games involved. Are you in the editing. Because from what anti tells me he's very involved in the Brooklyn nine nine.

Is this this weird thing when you're when you're just an actor you're like okay. I guess like it is. It will be what it will be. But when you're premier night yeah when you're a producer you're like shit I have to. I want to it's hard. I mean you're similar. I think it's hard for us to let go.

The 1A Movie Club Sees 'Jojo Rabbit'

"Get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply this message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity some things are slow like a snail races other things are fast like Xfinity X. by this is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson in Washington and imaginary friend inspire you make you laugh keep you company when you feel alone but I'm guessing that your imaginary friend was not at all you give Joe Joe Rabbit and why no fractions a full five this is one of my favorite movies of the year I think it's a very smart social satire public radio in Los Angeles Mr vice-president Welcome back to the club happy to be with you joining us from Chicago is Tasha Robinson the film and TV editor for the Verge Tasha I think it has some very important things to say about the corrosive consequences of hate and a totalitarian state but I think it's also a lovely loves you making fun of Nazis is not easy to do satisfying perhaps but tricky does Joe Joe Rabbits strike the right balance and what else does this movie do well beside what happens in the second half of the book is really about the relationship between Jo Jo Ann Elsa and the movie copies one basic premise and that is story about a young boy who is friendless and his relationships with his fat friend Yorkie and the girl upstairs Elsa and speaking of they wanted me to kill it I'm sorry about it I couldn't care less that's not as Hitler and Roman Griffin our contemporary world the impact of peer pressure on one's behavior the kind of the dangers of extremism of of Ray facism of anti-semitism and so for that reason I think it challenges us to confront some of those issues John Joe Rabbit is based on a novel called Caging Skies smocking Nazis joining us for this meeting of the movie club is our Vice President John Horn the host of the frame daily Arts and entertainment programme from KPC. I would give it a five and I do this because the film really gets you to think about a lot of issues issues not just about the past but about Memorial Museum here in Washington Stephen Welcome thank you very much it's great to be here let's begin as we always do with your reviews beginning with you John How many stars out of five from two thousand four by Christine loons WHO's in New Zealand Belgian novelist walk us through the general storyline of Joe Rabbit and particularly how it might depart from the her fall in love with him the novel is much darker the movie is I will say a lot gleyber Joe in the novel as loses an arm leaving the ten year old Joe Joe Bessler in the satirical film Joe Joe Rabbit Bets Lawyer is training in the Nazi youth during the Third Reich near the end of World War Two Hitler Court Joe Joe Land I don't want to tell me about that incident was that about uh-huh kind of dark story because after the war ends Joe Joe doesn't tell the girl that the world that the war is over and basically she's a hostage and he is trying to make her book roll it departs from the book a lot The book actually the war ends almost halfway of not a little bit earlier through the novel and that Joe Joe is a member of the Hitler youth and up in his attic is a Jewish girl who is hiding from the Nazis what the book has to say it'd be welcome to one A. I it's lovely to be here and here with us in studio is Stephen Luck the senior curator for Holocaust education at the United States Holocaust so it's really the story of this young boy girl in the attic and about his mom who is working secretly in the resistance she both in the novel and in the film is not in the second half of the movie let's just say that not in the second half of the story so that's where it kind of copies and then the story is that Taika Ytd's mom read the book I and the war here he in the movie he's disfigured by a hand grenade and it's also I would say the film is a lot more optimistic about what can happen and how things were I bd and Taika invented imaginary friend of Adolf Hitler that Taika plays in the film what's the reception to the movie been like so far both critically and at the box office alerts the trailer gives this entire movie away so I don't think there's anything we can say that's going to ruin anybody's expectation of what happens in this film let me come now to Stephen Lucky it how many stars out of five and wine alleged to see how many people a broader audience wanted to go see this film and it's you know in some ways going to be a real test of whether or not people can get past the incredibly polarizing and I think this is going to be part of what we're going to talk about it is a movie I was at the Governor's awards for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science Stars but I think it's about a third of a really lively fun Satirical film and then the rest of it is a kind of drippy whole concede of can you make a movie that has Adolf Hitler as a comic foil in a central part I say Yes for a lot of people say no sentimental romance that for me just completely didn't work on a lot of different levels I don't have a problem with satirizing Hitler Americans have been satirizing Hitler is a couple of nights ago I talked to two people and they said it's their favorite movie of the year I talked to other people like not for me so it has been critics either love this movie or really I said I think this should be your next movie and described essentially the movie that he made Taika went back and read the novel and goes and said was much darker than what you described and I think that's the conversation that is really gonNA polarize audiences around this film Tasha Robinson what about you how many stars out of five and why I did not hate it I would give it a clean three since the nineteen forty s often some pretty derisive and in some cases childish ways this is maybe a little more sophisticated fun for me the movie just kind of disintegrates when it stops being about that that very subversive relationship between Joe and imaginary Hitler and country my empire would be full of all animals lions jakobs zebras rhinoceroses octopus really don't and it's you know it's GonNa be a tough challenge at the box office the people who have gotten off to you know has some momentum but it's going to be a real challenge Joe Man I want to tell me about the incident what was that about they wanted me grid the Rabbit is no coward the humble little bunny faces a dangerous world every day hunting carrots for his family for his this is not the first movie to make fun of Adolf Hitler Charlie Chaplin did it Mel Brooks did it more than once what did you make the tone of this movie especially kind of the approach to this to this to the film and in some ways that reminded me of what Charlie Chaplin was doing in the great dictator and childlike nature in which Joe's imagination comes out through Hitler would I think in some ways it was an interesting we says an interesting parallel there because Charlie Chaplin played the Hitler character but he also directed it they both were trying to get at some of the same issues oh you amu and NPR support for this podcast and the following message come from Uber Uber is committed earns into the story of the girl that he's lying to in order to control her and keep her in his closet let's get to a clip from the movie we heard this earlier here is the imaginary friend Hitler played by Director tyco Itt and Joe Bachelor played by Roman Griffin Davis in a scene from Gioja Rabbit to safety and to continuously raising the bar to help make safer journeys for everyone verse starters all drivers are background checked before their first ride and screened on an minded of the play and funny film the producers that has a play within a play that spoofs Hitler I tell my non Jewish friends that it's okay to laugh while watching in nineteen ninety four a controversial ballot measure in California called proposition one eighty-seven was the first shot in our modern culture wars over immigration skillet. I'm sorry I couldn't don't worry about it I couldn't care less but now they call me scared rabbits let them say whatever they want people ongoing basis and now Uber has introduced a brand new safety feature called ride check which can detect if a trip goes unusually off course and check in to provide support about tolerance about persecution and so I think that going using the fi the figure of Joe Joe unfunny film the producers that has a play within a play that spoofs Hitler I tell my non-jewish friends that it's okay to laugh while watching John and even off Hitler allows us to to grab a grasp and grapple with some of those issues Janice emailed I'm tricky issue and certainly the people that I've talked to who are most upset by the film tend to have relatives who were Holocaust survivors so I think that is an important thing this is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson the movie club is reviewing the film Joe Joe Rabbit with John Horn the host of the frame on KPCC sustain a lot of nasty things about me Oh this guy's a lunatic oh look at that psycho he's GonNa get us all killed let you in on a little see Stephen Record of the United States Holocaust memorial museum and Tasha Robinson of diverge let's pick up with that last comment from Janice who emailed I'm reminded of the play listen to the battle of one eighty seven a partnership between Latino USA and the Los Angeles Times it's let USA from NPR listen and subscribe now that's an interesting theme we'll talk about whether it is okay to laugh about this kind of story as we continue with your reviews of Joe Joe Rabbit I'm Joshua Johnson and you're listening to one A.. From she react to that this idea of it being okay to laugh at a movie about Hitler about the Nazis about the suppression extermination of Jews. I think it's really let's dealt with the Holocaust has received mixed reviews about whether there were those who criticized for instance Schindler's List when it came out and said that it US Ryan octopuses even the mighty rabbit those were takeaway and Roman Griffin Davis in Joe Joe Rabbit Stephen Times and a movie like this even if it's a satire even if it's a comedy and this is part of Tiga Ytd's intention can tell a younger audience and remind them what happened to be or not to be by Ernst Lubitsch they came out in one thousand nine hundred forty two also I- comedy about Nazis and I think this is important distinction you can make jokes win Schindler's List came out in ninety three won the Academy Award for Best Picture as history and fate would have it directed by Steven Spielberg helped to bring attention focused on the aspect of rescue and perhaps over emphasize that and maybe Schiller look a little bit too much like the hero of the story not Nazis you can't make jokes about the Holocaust but it is also important to remember that were two point in American history and I was just looking this up that movie came out and it started to run at high schools all over the country including mine do as a little bit of a flutter of like can we show this to high school like freshmen like a study last year by the conference on Jewish material claims against Germany. two-thirds of American mental millennials could not identify what this is three hours of Super Realistic Holy Crap Holocaust Har- like I don't know if I want my kids to see this it seems like this subject is story on both sides whether it's most successful aspect of the film was the relationship between Hitlerian Joe Joe Joe Joe is a marginalized child he's to the Shoah Foundation which documents the lives of Jews and was released by universal picture which was founded by Karl Emily who was a German Jew but I remember that when great dictator to be or not to be does that an honestly frankly a few looking to be educated on the Holocaust you should come to the United States Holocaust memorial museum that's the place to go oh Schmitz was and twenty two percents any all said they never heard of a Holocaust so you have to remember that we are living in ignorant time you're on a limit certainly could lead people curious intellectually curious people in the right direction but just as a pure subversive comedy all of the the dating him who's leading him who's giving him all sorts of messages that it seems impossible to imagine the actual Hitler giving to a child and you even in the clippers. DT Hitler comedy Joe Joe Rabbit Needs Way more Hitler what do you mean by them mostly what I meant by that was I felt that the the but I think they can each in some ways educate us about particular issues and I think Joe Joe Rabbit does that Schindler's List does that I think you know the able family drama slash comedy about a a younger boy struggling with acceptance and an older man who befriends and the dynamic is very tom and I think it's expecting too much to say that one film is going to be able to deal with with the Holocaust in its entirety in all its complexity into an institution that is designed for this but I do take the argument about the depiction of Hitler and Tasha your review of Joe Joe Rabbit for the verge is titled Tyco all of the wealth there is in that relationship if you look back at takeaway. Td's previous movie hunt for the wilder people that's also a really innovative fun enjoyed but TYCO TD is an economist he loves doing lick lively groundbreaking boundary pushing kind of things and here I think it's it's really words that it emphasized that aspect of that and kind of downplayed others but I think and so you're going to run that risk that no film into remember that said remember the great dictator came out in nineteen forty and the movie that I would really site as a bigger influence on Michael by TD is the original and now our feature presentation it it just it seems to me that I I don't know about the educational value of the movie because it's so wacky and were there and I think a lot more successful than here where the focus shifts really sharply to something that's just not as innovative just not as his out they're just not as to learn more about Uber's commitment to safety visit Uber Dot com slash safety hi I'm muddying wholesome post of NPR's let new USC during the war even if it's a comedy even of Adolf Hitler is an imaginary friend it's important that people remember history because there's a lot of people who've forgotten stephen any many holocaust movies and and this was just one other way to bring about the message and we just thought it was excellent how do you surprising and strange let's get to the phones now a Lisa is on the line Haley so what did you think of Gioja Rabbit how many stars out of five and Y yes my husband and I just said talking about the recent information that we have now that says how ignorant people are on the actual Holocaust itself so anything we can bring out about that very reductive but with one of them is a good movie I think anything we can do to bring the subject out I appreciated your previous person who is speaking reflect on these movies that deal with the Holocaust or Holocaust related things you said you've seen many of them how do you kind of determine if one of them is and I know time period I think is effective even if it's done in a off kilter way like this one was in terms of making fun of Hitler I still think it's the movie this last weekend and we haven't stopped thinking about it since we give it a five star we thought the acting was superb we've seen right well definitely right octopus doesn't want those running around goring and grabbing everything eight scaly gray arms offering he's struggling and he creates this image in his head of what he sees as successful powerful leader whose you played you can you can hear that with him going on about octopuses and how how they're going to be welcome in his kingdom I believe you mean runoff was say realistic drama or total social satire yeah it's it's a very difficult issue of how you address this history and almost every film Chikatilo on it would provoke people to think and perhaps maybe look into it a little bit more Schindler's List was another one that yes there was some issues with how it was done but over Paul I think it was very thought provoking and that's what we need in this time at least I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts thanks very much for talking to us before we keep going on the line Stephen the St people who have with Joe Joe Rabbit the one thing I will say in the film's Defense Hitler in this film is a ten year old imaginary version of Hitler it has not Hitler as he was it's what Joe Joe imagines him to be and the clip we heard the beginning was was Hitler as this all realized he becomes ineffective he become shop worn he's literally falling apart at the seams so I think that's the important distinction between making fun of somebody and how is that possible that actually makes me angry that so few people understand that ten million people including six million Jews powerful person but JOE JOE's starts to reclaim his own life and starts to dispel hate and he does that his Hitler becomes margin recede into the past the people forget about that in the importance of this history and where hate anti-semitism and hilarious only later as an adult that I become aware of the difficult issues of turning horrific historical events into comedy John Here's the important point seventies we had a TV show that made fun of the Nazis you know ran for several seasons very popular called Hogan's heroes and it was about POW's I mean I think and this is where people are divided can you make fun of Nazis versus can you humanize them and I think a lot of the critics of Joe Joe Rabbit say oblong that it that also affects many places in Europe and other parts of the world I was talking to someone from Sri Lanka some some years so ago and he told me he said you know in many places in Asia Hitler's a hero that they don't know about the Holocaust they only see Hitler as a he facism lead and I think it's you know it's up to all of us to kind of make sure that future generations are educated about this tragic history let's keep going on the phone Maria thank you for calling in and sharing that we got a number of people who comment to John on Hogan's heroes including will who emailed I watched Hogan's heroes when I was a kid and thought owns now in Tennessee Maria is standing by Hey Maria how many stars out of five would you give Joe Joe Rabbit and why I'm afraid I haven't seen it yet humanizing Nazis but I would argue it's all in service of the bigger story about rejecting hate and getting over what you've been taught I did kind of love his character and also rubber Wilson's gipsies gays and lesbians you know Jehovah's Witnesses the handicapped millions of people were slaughtered by the Nazis. How do you not know this why okay I get what Charlie Chaplin was doing I get with Jack Benny was doing you can make fun of Nazis but you can't humanize them and that's part of the complaint and it's a valid complaint I hear about humanizing That character in the same is true with a character played by Sam Rockwell Captain Clubs and Dwarf that is where I think people are most polarized on this film about doesn't the whole country why doesn't every child in America know what happened when you raise a good question and it's not just a problem that we face the United States but this Eero That he was a nationalist united is country etc and so that there so that we face a danger to as as as the actor I I couldn't not love him at the end Tasha what do you think in terms of that line between education awareness comedy it's worth noting that nearer to the end of the story Joe Joe in his in a POW camp running intelligence operations under in a tunnel under their camping they portrayed the Germans as absolutely lessons there was a Sergeant Schultz conversation with Hitler here some very frighteningly terrifyingly realistic Hitler whose emphatic and powerful and gives a speech where he he looks. Yeah and I think it's still in reruns somewhere but making fun of Nazis was never an issue in the sixties and that wasn't that far after the war I don't think every time he sold on operation you know intelligent operation happening he just close his eyes and say I ain't gonNA testing nicey nothing spaying in my generation teas were human they weren't they weren't darth vader they weren't imaginary monsters they were human beings who were making terrible decisions. I think that it's worth questioning anything that that seems to humanize Nazis but it's also worth humanizing Nazis because it's worth acknowledging that the non Oh you're GonNa say it pretty thin I just wanted to call in and you know maybe remind people or at least my generation when we grew up in the sixties and late sixties clearly he looks in a propaganda film except he happens to be speaking English and from that moment the movie makes a left turn and becomes very very intense what did you think Tasha that mimics some of the things that went on in Nazi Germany and if we don't acknowledge that if we pretend that the Nazis word some sort of imaginary and I think that that is an important thing to remember an acknowledge because we're still human beings making important and terrible decisions there things going on right now in the country a creature that had no human human level to them we risk completely losing the messages that we learned we risk completely losing any ground that we gained by understanding the depths of human atrocity now I'm not saying that Gioja Rabat's of moving necessarily about the depths of human atrocity but it does acknowledge the sacrifices that were made by people fighting the Nazis and it does acknowledge that people like Sam Rockwell's character had moral objections that they weren't necessarily acting on it which gives us all an opening to consider the moral objections to things going on today that should be acted on we'll we'll continue our country born diane emailed I saw the film loved it satire is one of the best ways to expose and Shatter Repulsive Villainy and mockery can also offer a step toward course correction own sorry Tasha we've got a pause but we will continue in just a minute with film and TV editor Tasha Robinson from the Verge Stephen Lucrative the United States Holocaust memorial museum and keep John Support for this podcast and the following message come from Google from Connecticut to California from Mississippi to Minnesota millions of American businesses are using Google tools to grow online the grow with Google Initiative supports small businesses by providing free digital skills workshops and one on one coaching and all fifty states helping businesses so spooky batch of episodes from NPR's Daily Science podcast shortwave we're going to talk about parasites that take over and control the brains of their hosts describe and leave us a rating that helps other people find the show and don't forget you can catch the news round up at the end of every week happy Halloween married's this week don't miss a special and we'll talk about some of the best mockeries of Nazis including one for Mel Brooks in a moment stay clips online connect with new customers and work more productively learn more at Google dot com slash growl hey there it's Joshua thanks for listening to the one eight podcast please take a moment one movie in one thousand

That's been coming out for ages right because you saw in Toronto or something and then there's other films which are out until much later like April or something which must go screen is fourth. Is Bill Weird and films like parasite which everyone's talking about right now which coming here in February. It's been so long and portrait as well because we saw those at cannon may obviously they're coming out like basically ten months which I get but it does mean we're sort of sadly removed but you know I am happy that good movies again recognition and some. Good some not so good movies again. Where conditions very discombobulating populating time of year? But before we dip into twenty twenties new releases we do have some we have. We have a matter to attend to from last year's films a film that you didn't do very well the box office over the Christmas. Break with cats We got the letter from Helen. McGrath who Says here I was listening. Reese your cats review. I've not seen the film but on the BOVRIL overall sign of if listeners may remember we talked about how he's very conspicuous that one of the neon lights up there in cats London was bovril. That won't that spe- to mark the area of Piccadilly Circus as opposed to any in Congress product placements for years. There was famously. A massive. Several sign of the circus see attached. Pick back and Helen's hash the pig. Hey away where it has a big bottle sign Stephanie. piggly circus with also Wrigley's and big sign saying Guinness is good for you well. I'm happy that Tom Hooper. Got One thing right. You know there was a lot wrong with that film but no one could accuse him of not knowing where the big buffer sign was. Well I think I will accuse him of not only Burleson. What's I think in the film? Eight central square not Piccadilly Circus. which this picture show still managed to myself the thing we we're getting out with? Just how absurd it was that all other neon signs. All of the MARQUEES had puns around campus. Not something that. Have some deep in joke that we know gassing today may maybe they were simultaneously trying to be accurate historical and get in the pocket of big bubble offering offer films not made any money so maybe like the buffalo money is GonNa tied the Viper giving a blank check by. It sink it. We've had quite a lot of feedback about that focused very good. Don't you for the General Kennedy. We get a lot of people were like. Actually I think you'll find the buffalo does it. Why does everyone know about this bubble side apart from me? Is this like part of when you aborted London. You kind of guess. His the the big book offer few feel baby baby because I only moved. If I've years ago and I didn't have any idea about this ball. Business he learned something New York. Thanks so much. That's the kind kind of trivial I love says you got any more Trivia for is for these days send them an on the The box office flop That was cut out. We're really interesting piece. I think it's four pts this week just really acting why. The film failed commercially. And it's really interesting so if dives into how much of an anomaly this is for this kind of big you know award season Baiting a star-studded movie actually not not just like underperformed. But basically it's not gonNA make anywhere near its Its budget back so really interesting. Read if not interested in that and so forth and so sort of our good friend. The SAFDIE brothers uncut uncut gems released over Christmas in the United States and made more money than cats at the box office which I think is pretty incredible. An independent film. That wouldn't have gone anywhere near as many screens casted Michelin Cottam sound. Let's be the magical mystery stuff lease choice. So that's a good segue because of course we're big fans of the Saudi brothers on on this show. We had an into special Wednesday with Christmas break with the two brothers and also this Thursday. We're having the screening of daddy long legs that one of the features. Ah Yeah that fast feature direct together. We'll be down at the Prince Charles What are they watching? We will be watching it We will also be the hosting a live episode of trees. You me and I get good. Boy David Jenkins and we'll be talking about Daddy long legs and cut gems so come on down. We've got some signed on GM's posters to give away as well so as well as staying in your seat after the puck after the film inches said he a hundred minute. Maybe maybe it's not like long. One show is going to be a truth movies after dark. Some soft jazz playing a little Whiskey have energy into twenty twenty but I mean I highly. I know anyone that is has been listening to his book. I saw indeed following outwear. We'll have probably noticed my mercy campaign about uncut gems. But I do think if you're gonNA watch jams or if you are if you've seen uncut Joe's that was You'll enjoy your Gallo out of watching daddy long as I think you can definitely try to the niche. So yeah I highly recommend even if you don't come to screen and just watching weightman blatantly and if you are interested please do come that screening especially if you're free in around in London in the Prince Charles Cinema on th on Thursday night January. That's today tickets at their website. Eight eight forty five pm before we crack with nearly three US Adam any other business from the white lies towels. You just a tease. That we've got a new issue coming out Put up just before Christmas hitting shots hitting newsstands this week. We're going to be making an announcement about on Thursdays. Well David I think he's on next week who talk a bit more about the issue and what to expect from Eh look out for that announcement brilliance anyway. We should crack home with this world war special becoming both world wars hair non-eu releases this week up first tossing appropriate with the first world war in nineteen seventeen at the heights of the first world. War Two young. A young British soldiers are given a seemingly impossible mission in a race against time. They must cross enemy territory and deliver a message. Stop a deadly ambush on thousands of British soldiers. Yes that's hair clip. You have a brother in the second battalion. If they're walking into a trap the oldest ought to deliver a message calling off tomorrow morning's attack if you fail it will be a massacre with quotas the cross. That is the German frontline. If we're not clever about this no one will get to your brother. How will so adam nineteen eighteen seventeen? This sort of came out no halfway through last year. We heard that Sam Mendes was putting together. This first world war thriller spectacular thriller. Roger Deacons doing talk about it being almost shot in one continuous take how out. Yeah I guess we should tackle the one tate aspect of this film first and foremost because I'm not really sure where that came from The first ice of heard about the film Towards the middle of last yes j when he was talking about the shooting and then suddenly the trailer I think just dropped and an an yes. You're like wow. They've made this film and seemed like a quite a big thing especially for director. Sam Mendes who directed lost to James Bond films and is generally quite. I don't think well regarded in inspiration. The Marin Yeah. I'm not sure whether that came up. His campaign and that was a message that misconstrued slightly the whole one shot thing but really the film I think is Is more accurate to describe describe as a taking place in real time right so it takes place over essentially twenty four hours and this this is nice symmetry to the narrative We should say it's very light on. Plot is if you do like more action from your films this appropriate one for you because it does kind of three straight into the action as pre am relentless as well once it gets going the first scene when when the two young privates are given their mission and they have to initially. Leave the trenches and crossover no-man's-land land just that sequences one of the most nerve racking in an immersive sequences. I've seen in any war from I think it's wonderfully shot by Roger Deakins on cinematography. Gt's just the actual not just the technical aspects of how they filmed it in a continuous newest take or to feel like as a continuous take but actually the the logistics and the mechanics of how they followed the two actors because essentially sliding through Mudan stepping over kind of dead Ed bodies and horses and all sorts and I I was just watching it thinking how they actually filming. This is quite. It's quite amazing. And they're of using like steady cams. It was shot and digitally as well which obscene able to make it feel like a of one one take thing Is a little bit of a shame that they stick with that. I think they using that technique using that four morbid showmanship initially works really. Well immerses you in the film. I think the longer the film goes on the more. This this whole mechanic actually is ever roadblock. For the the immersive nece that is supposed to be engendered by my so yeah yeah just just kind of gets to a point where it becomes a little bit boring actually. I think it's one of those films where it shows the value of a good car and a good editor I bet the actual I mean. I'm not sure how this film was edited essentially where there was like multiple takes ultimately stitch together much like Birdman can in recent years and famous Alfred. Hitchcock's rope that there's a there's a little bit of like effects work going on here like little cuts hidden in the shadows and things like that right so you can kind of look out for them and we should buy this one really hard cut in the middle which essentially separated from night and day. But yeah just really left me feeling like this. This is a film probably needed. An editor needed some cuts cuts can release tension as much as they can build it right. I if if you correctly so I think so off into a corner up at this film which caused me to get out of it. I'm going to invoke the D. Word quite early in this segment. dunkirk Kirk and it feels like that long take approach is some menaces wave differentiating. This film from what. Christopher Nolan did in dunkirk which is the exact opposite right with cutting back and forth and multiple timelines multiple threats. Some having this play out in real time what I think differentiates this good way particularly early on in the film is is the fact that it takes place toward the end of the first World War. Everyone is really beaten down by this long. Slog of a war and part of the setup is the German line has retreated and the crossing into no-man's-land former enemy territory. That's been deserted. So there's so much tension and suspense in these early scenes of just open Agra phobia and juicing space with no one around the complete opposite of dunkirk. which really did you know the into submission with with the tension of of of another fly by But maybe doesn't sustain. That's how I three hundred did he make a nineteen seventeen. Was this your jam. I'm not like a huge which war movies person. I didn't really like Dunkirk. I thought it was a K.. I wasn't really sold on it as much as George MCI so I was quite excited to see him. Do his Do his thing and I think it's it's it's interesting. How the film sets him up? Basically as the Initially initially at least he feel like he's kind of a not not really the lead character thing happens and it very much becomes this. He's he's completely on his in both physically and mentally. He's very kind of like you. Say Very warm down and beaten by this set relentless war and I think it's getting that sense of kind of how desperate it was towards the end of the war is really I wouldn't say I enjoyed it. I think was the most interesting wresting thing you know the way that they the soldiers are sort of Skim- Byron everyone off that commanders are just in pieces. There's a lovely Andrew Scott seen seen in this hot priest of feedback fame Where he said he's on screen for about ten minutes? ARTEM hot sergeant. But he's just kind of say withering and and disinterested in in the very very important mission that George mckeon Dean Charles Chapman have and he's just just like do what you want. I don't care anymore. We're GONNA die which I very much enjoyed that. There's a real sense that all the kind of supporting players in this half their own story lying on in in in In Tangent tanned rather to the the actual storyline which I liked. Because when you've got kind of these big hit the very famous putting this for about eighteen minutes at times because I suggest that does not spoil in this film but if it was interested in seeing this film and they don't know who's in this is just playing a game of of guests the guests the cameo because you can almost think okay. What sort of middle aged or just in the middle aged older actor would play? The general also took took place in a left Hannan and you can probably guess he's going to be really hoping Stephen Fry of pop up in blackadder at some point and suddenly. He doesn't Knife Rhino. I knew phew lifts off. The cheese. Missed is interesting. How saw follows loose video game structure as well so they're on this big mission but each chopped chopped slightly so you have different locations even though you're following these guys There isn't really a break in terms of continuity the geography There are very distinct. I think little chapters emission submissions almost within the film. And it's like you get to a point where the stillwater bridge character comes in check check point. It's like a little cut scene. That happens in the movie. I don't know whether that was intentional. I feel Sam Mendes. Maybe isn't a video game guy. But I'd love to know because this I go. Oh suffice say I wish this was a video game. That film the fact that the that real time aspects Really lend itself to to feeling like a playing a game or watching the last play video game. It's like watching someone else play but then also the aesthetic Is very similar to a few recent video games. One I will go to a reference Eddie. OKAJIMA is death stranding which is a walking simulator across a barren landscape. But then also the last of us The the the naughty dog playstation game a couple of years ago. Where is he's just mainly long stretches of people talking while walking through desolate locales? And that's what this has. It has set pieces that you get got to get to an abandoned farmhouse and it's like it's somebody in there and what's going to happen the main thing you you have planes flying over in dogfighting but then most of it is just these Tommy's sharing stories with each other in between the moments of of suspense and that's really is like certain stranded video games right now which I'd love to play rather than have Sam Mendes playing it for me. I think the fascinating points about this film is supposedly based partly on summonses grandfather's a father's Experience in the war and which he kinda diarist and it feels like it doesn't feel like a very personal film Is some end is up on the poster. Ever if you'd showed this to me and that's helped me. who directed it? I probably wouldn't be able to tell you. I think he isn't necessarily someone who does have. Have you know a a signature style. But this doesn't feel like the work of someone who is is pulling a kind of really personal story on the screen and that's not necessarily to totally thirty two films detriment but I think when you're talking about maybe less so nowadays the first World War but certainly those the two was basically you know they are invariably everybody they bring up very personal feelings and connections for people Much like Jackson documentary did for people last year. and Yeah I mean some Kirk I think to a lesser extent. Stanton still there was. There was a little compensation on that and one of the things I thought was fascinating. The criticism around that was the decision not to show the enemy. And I wish he'd Kinda stuck with that. I think that would actually have made much more sense than doesn't Dunkirk goes through to get this item in anticipation enjoyment. In retrospect. I was kind of intrigued. I think the fact that came out of nowhere that that always instantly excites me when something as seemingly just been made surreptitiously oh to stay in and just dropped. So it's maybe a four Francis patient and the and also just the idea of Sam Mendes doing anything other than bond film I I'd say probably alias. Three three five enjoyment immense respect. I'm kind of the same. Maybe three in anticipation discount Radio Radia Mendez had his belief. The fans called An an enjoyment. In retrospect three not feel my very soul about much I saw. It doesn't ugly Henry. Stay with me I will say. It looks fantastic. I think deakins might be on for another Oscar after all these years. I think this is the threes down the line for me. It is spectacular. It's really good to see on the big screen. But it's not this. This film gets is racking up so many award nominations. Of course you can't spell awards without war and this sorta film is what gets a big nominations nine after this week. Got Drama the Golden Globes. And we'll see in the coming weeks how it doesn't after an Oscar give. I think it's just a very uncontroversial film for them to give awards to. It's not joker which I think they'll be a certain subset of the people who evoke these water well carbon whereas nineteen seventeen is just a very handsome looking prestige drum drama A made by a director who has a lot of good faith and goodwill towards him. So I can understand why it's getting would I just don't think it should be okay. I suspect talk of technical awards and possibly lose on the big ones. I think he's deserving who I think is a I did solid bit filmmaker. That's kind of what has solid call may nineteen seventeen if you do go and see that film this week. Let let's not make the usual channels true movies on twitter truth and movies at Linden Dot com via email or the comment section elderly lies dot com slash. podcast up next. We're moving on to the Second World War TYCO. It's Joe Roberts writer-director writer director Tyco. Itt brings his signature style to the second world. War Comedy Joe. A young German Ladan a keen member hit the youth in the waning days of the war has his world. You turned the upside down when he discovers. His mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his imaginary friend of Hitler played by TYCO. It himself Joel. must face some tough questions about his beliefs and his country. Let's hear clip celebrated war and talking politics. It was Schmaltz. Young boys had your blind fanaticism. Did he know shoes can each other's might l'otage who saw one thank. You look just like us you know what I am uh-huh q.. Because tense wasn't my going to the House Church negotiate the trailer for Joe Joe Rabbit there. So how'd you saw this at Toronto last year. Where the what's quite excitement about this film because tycoon Itt after thunder and so on is is quite hot right now yeah He seems to be attached to every we project gangs since Thor Ragnarok came out in twenty sixteen no he's been accused accused of not being hardworking And this has been a passion project of his for many years. I remember hearing about this who years ago. I think it was on the block in two thousand twelve twenty eleven. So it's been knocking around Hollywood for quite a long time. I think it was just a case of him. Getting ever higher high-profile in order to make her oversee after making Ragnarok he kind of got lost your goodwill and so he assembled this big old. A Hollywood cast to do this anti-hate satire as as they're calling it and there was a whole thing after the Fox Disney merger. There was a lot of news stories stories that came out about this film and kind of The conflict I guess between Disney and Fox causes the Fox film and panic dizzy. Disney went on CPA sure it would fit in with that audience. So I'm not entirely sure. If this is the vision of Jesuit rabbit that was intended right but but it's the vision we've got and what did we get ready. you start with with Jesuit. Wrap it so we have Raymond Griffin Davis. WHO's a young British actor very charming twelve year? Old playing this very idealistic fully paid up member of the But he's also at the cow salad and that's where he gets his name because he won't kill rabbit which apparently is a thing that they do in the Nazi do strange a strange nickname origin and anyway he discovers that his mother Scott Hanson is hiding a young Jewish girl house and he is kind of forced to confront and his prejudice because he meets this Young Jewish girl played by Thomasson. Mackenzie who is wonderful. Young actress shoes leave no trace and and yeah I get I give you giving you the plot because as with a lot of business around the story right so of course. The big is. It's all over the posters. Thai tea is playing Hitler in this movie in a very comic caricatured complete recognizable sense. Yeah I think that was the kind of whole joke around the film was that you have. He tyke his very playful twitter and he said I can't piss off the ghost of Hitler more than having a marriage. Did you play. Play him in a film which is fair enough. I'm being very diplomatic about this because I do understand you know. He is a person of color and has Jewish Jewish parents. Were I think his mother's Jewish so I don't want to you know kind of paperless chips and say the he doesn't have a right to tell a story in the way he he finds helpful and productive to him. But I do think this is one of the worst films. I've seen a very long time and I hated it in in the space. They say there's a there's a wonderful quote from another critic. I remember who is exactly. They said the It doesn't satire is not as it infantilises. The Holocaust which I think is tightly. There's no better way of summing up this film it reduces the systematic extermination of millions of Jewish people. Any people of course you know they would not the victims of the Holocaust ages it to the psych. Oh Hitler was a bit city. BET which I think. He's just like abhorrent. I don't really think that Joe Girardi tries to satirize anything the reason there is even a scene in which it kind of tries to like Redeem Nazis and be like watch either with some Nice Nazis to which is just a very strange thing to point out in Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Hundred Twenty S. You know but the problem is that they were still not even though they were nice people. The slot into the sub genre of Second World. War films like the Boeing Strike Pajamas. Life is beautiful which takes juvenile the view of a young child Trying to process these horrors visit successful. I'm without hair and I've had the argument a lot that it is told Machar's perspective. The problem is not that the problem is that everyone in the film behaves. He's like a child So the other Nazis that we see And spend time we're like Sam Rockwell and and rebel Wilson and Stephen Merchant. That ought behaving. It's a very like Aussie cartoonish caricature. Oh of of of of Nazism. But that the stuff they do is just not ready plausible. They basically acting like total buffoons acting acting like children. Playing to Jessup awesome and I think that just undermines any attempt at satire. The film could attempt because Eh if you have essentially adults behaving childishly even a twelve year old boy. I don't think would look at it and and be like. Oh yeah that makes sense. Sounds like what they're doing is something that I could get behind. Doesn't really try to explore on the stand his fanaticism and why he suddenly so you know what I guess why. He's so devout in his in his belief in in the few earn his country's doing because he seeing adults and he's seeing people who are you know essentially supposed to be guiding figures in his life behaving like people who who've Gone Iq that was below his and then you're adult that actually accent accent space his mother and it doesn't really seem to pay much attention to have some reason. I think the big thing the film lacks ultimately is context right. So you know you can you can depict and and quite easily satirize lampoon. Nazism and Hitler is obviously a very easy target and has been widely ridiculed. We'll come onto Charlie Chaplin later. But you can't really do that without providing some context of what was actually going on and exploring like the root of what was happening in Nazi Germany at the time. And I think the thing that really sums this up for me so today is David Bowie's birthday as we're recording this and his his his son heroes plays plays ended. This film which I think just on on a very superficial level is like if you're using heroes at this point in time in in your film then you have a word with you because it is such passe even a cover or foreign language version of it. That's such as a passing to but at the very start of the film. There's another the song very famous pop. Song by loan called the Beatles Playing over the opening credits of the film and it's their German language version of. I WanNa hold your hand. And it's matched with archive footage of rallies and basically like rapturous. Nazi crashes the looting going on lots of saluting and and when I was watching this I was kinda thinking. This is this is actually quite ingenious. Like drawing a comparison between Beatle Mania on what was going on in Germany in Nineteen Thirties. And it's such a shame that he doesn't really explore that and again provide context to that I think he just uses it as a cue opening. Refrain for the film to set the tone in. And you know this possibly a little bit of a suggestion of what we can expect from. Joe Joe his relationship with his imaginary friend character but I think so. Yeah sets up this idea of how fanaticism what fanaticism looks like basically and then just doesn't really explore that yeah. I think the lack of interrogation in this film really officers a bit slapdash. The other thing that I've had many conversations about this film with my friends is that you never really. We know where it's meant to be set. That's very important thing would too. So it's in the dying days the Second World War and maybe somewhere in Germany. I think he's meant to be the point. But it's very lie on kind of where because at the end we kind kind of see The end of the war basically and it's kind of I really three and maybe this is coming so I you know I studied history at university. She so maybe I'm coming from a very pedantic point of view but it just feels very solve Generalized Very Babies I history lesson and and I I really think past that stage now. I think you con- talk about Something as vile as the Nazi regime without kind of being a little bit serious he. I think it's just. It was so disappointing to me to watch US film. I really thought if anyone could do this right it would be take Ott. I'm big fan of his ready like love his work by just. I'm not sure that the kind of key see whimsey. Whimsical approach works for this. This kind of content. It makes me look again at his other films. I've liked all his films to date. And you know full disclosure. While I have been programming screenings in the past asked I helped figure out the right situation. Around his wakened citizens proper debut boy after his shock we put screened the first screenings on in the UK for many many years here. And I think that this film shares some DNA with boy in with hunt for the wealthy people films where he has created these greats young boy protagonists lists but it shares the very silly comedy of something like what we do in the shadows where it can't take anything seriously for second until there is a moment in the film which we touched on where it does trying bid for a sentimental emotional points and it doesn't feel earned it doesn't feel like taking itself very seriously and it makes me think he's actually not very graceful consistent or thoughtful filmmaker so it's a shame to make that realization six films into as well. I think I think it does feel quite shocking. In the context of the film because up until that point everything has been very cutesy and whimsical and on the Nazis. Funny But then after that is kind of just life goes on and I think most people see the film. They'll realize how implausible that is But yeah I mean. It's just forecast to be so kind of wasted. There's any well maybe Thomas Mackenzie daily. I think it's kind of a thankless this role she has at Sam Rockwell. I found incredibly grating. I think the one person the one not saying who kind of I thought Radi Brady could have brought this home. Was Stephen Much because I think he really has this. Very creepy kind of Indiana Jones and the Covenant Vives to him in this. But that's the thing like I think there were times when it really could have gone away from this cutesiness and taking us down a darker Bethany and it would have made it more kind of interesting. I ready to just think it's such a sad waste of a film I. I will note before we go to the scores. This has been we. There's always one. Green Book was last year. Ed Three billboards outside of there's always a film. The everyone seems divided on between we critics only the original initial screenings versus critics on widescreen than the public seats and then Oscars and awards come out and this seems to be the one that people are disagreeing on quite strongly this shit and so- opinions may vary if listeners have seen this woman love please let us know what you make of it. But let's get the scores Come see I three schools and so it was probably a full an anticipation. I generally any sort. This could be quite good Was a little bit friends after the first trailer dropped but then yes then went in Toronto had the benefit I think coming to it before the discourse and it was like a a one horned I really could not jive with this and it may be quite angry because I think Taika is a re go. Filmmaker included a very intelligent man. And I just can't understand what drove him to make the show. That's all well. I'm not a huge fan of his stuff. Generally I think are quite an for the world of people actually saying that but but I think his his particular mode of humid isn't meeting my thing and actually if if you have enjoyed his previous films email just like on the on that level. It is very much the same kind of humor that he's he's delivering. I'd say probably a two in anticipation and just from everything you've said about Hanover. Everything I'd seen it has the air of lack of one for me. Kana film when a director as you say has success with a a major studio feature and then is is basically given inkata launch to do something like this and they rarely turn out successfully. And I'd have to say to enjoyment of one. In retrospect they think is a film that editing. It's a film I would WANNA watch again. I just auditing is a film that will live long in the memory for a lot of people in will will will probably be spoken about and they'll be accademia Britain about it but not not in a good sense I'd say four to two for me. he's is my favorite filmmakers but this one just didn't really work chameleon I take this opportunity to recommend boy so strongly. That's a film where he brings. This is very similar to Rapid Taika. waititi plays a father figure. That is an outsized character that comes into life. This boy I mean Sachi is his father in that case and but it's a study of identity and community and and and it's this this thing if you want to make a film about war from a child's perspective and about fanaticism and how the people not just young people but people can be indoctrinated just set in any other period of history or or at any kind of fictitious officious war. Don't make it about the Nazis. Anyway that's Joe Joe Robert. Let us know what you make. It's unusual channels up next film club with sticking with the Second World War for an of the satire the time from Charlie Chaplin is the great dictator released least in one thousand nine hundred forty. The great dictator saw Charlie Chaplin using his comic genius to skew. The Third Reich as war broke out across Europe using his onscreen resemblance to hit. Let's full of facts. Chaplin plays a jewel of both the fascist dictator adenoid Hinkel and a trump plank Jewish barber. He faces antisemitic. Persecution under HINKLE's tyrannical regime. Let's hit our clip from the vintage trailer. ADENOID PINK Old Dominion. I bet you recognize him him to. Its Charlie wonderful the extraordinary Charlie Chaplin by faith the ruthless dictator potato and Charlie resemble each other like two peas in five except that while Adenoid Hinkel makes millions of people tremble. Charlie makes makes them die of laughter. I Love I love hearing these old trailers Charlie makes them Di. Did he die watching this film. Wow Yes did Obviously not literally his speaking to you. the reason I wanted to pick this. Actually I think there are possibly better was war to Sata's and ones which held up from the period I think to not to be is a really shining example of that. Abide just kind of wanted to see how this held up now Not just in the context of Judge Robert but just with with the kind of thing that's going on in the world and You know to provide a context to this. It was written. Actually as Hitler was coming to power and I think Chapman had famously said that had he known the full the extent of the Nazis atrocities. What was going on? He probably wouldn't have made this film release. You wouldn't have made it in the way that that he did Which I think you know with hindsight insight is a pre both thing brave thing to say as a filmmaker but it just shows the context? Is Everything in this situation. This scenario and a accrue Khrushchev. I think what he's doing here and why this works was a satire. Is You know he's really he's really going after the the the head figure of this regime and you know again even at the time it was very easy to ridicule Hitler I think chaplain especially as someone who hit a famously aimlessly borrowed his his his own look partly on based on chaplain was a big fan and a chaplain. I think the film is banned in Nazi Germany. Obviously Veasley wasn't shown for many years across kind of postwar as well and chapter Noah's been fascinated to know what Hitler made event I. I'm sure oh he would've watched it just out of curiosity and someone who is that much narcissists than egotist with definite given a well but yeah I think the the reason it works for fundamental. Today's because the the humor is I guess it's a lot more like you always know who you're supposed to be laughing at what side. Not only Charlie Chaplin's character and I think this is the brilliance of having the to let the jewel role because you have that contrast between the guy who's been persecuted in the guy that's essentially responsible for it but yeah. I think think you always know where you are with. You know who you're supposed to be laughing with Anna via some enjoy. Your rabbit doesn't quite understanding and get right just just to go back to that but you know what even just on a basic comedic level I think as as one of his first. I think it's his first full sound and full dialogue movie away from from the silent era and there are a moment's early. On where the the the soundtrack will the sons on movie actually and there are just like slapstick. Moments Played Out in silence which is is misled him acknowledging that is in this transition But I think the moments that stand out for me we still are the the little slapstick touches that he throws in the bit where he asking co when he's in his office and he shimmied up the curtain just gets me every every retire is I I think I am I saw. I was just crying laughing watching that. If there's just so many SM small moments I think in this scene around the dinner table That's that's like classic chaplain. I think just on on a Saturday and just basic slapstick comedic level. I think it's already holds up. It's really fascinating watching this film alongside assigned to two films. We just watched because I wore sequence of the beginning in fact opening sequence the great dictator is almost a parody of nineteen seventeen. Because it's like the first World War with the visual witter some light Charlie Chaplin as some of my favorite bits are in that sequence where he gets in the flak gun and he's just like constantly wheeling around going upside down. It's a person person looking at war and trying to see what is visually absurd about it but then the naive not maybe the straight. The straightness of the satire doesn't come come from the de-politicised or the ignorance of the other two films like leaving out. The context is the fact that he didn't have the full context which is so fascinating so he can just look at the plane visual ridiculousness these characters. I don't think the bit that doesn't age very well from it all this. I don't find making fun. Of how the languages sounds you know. All the German and Italian gibberish whereas the the miscellany standing comes in. And he's just like a pizza cannoli rebuilding of the the time. I think it right now and it wasn't just chaplain doing that. Kind of show from shows from the British sitcoms from the seventeenth doing similar thing. It definitely hasn't aged particularly treasurer Robert. They make a joke. But when Hitler is talking to Jerry Jones says do you even speak German and like he just is like screaming hall. Hitler even ever again. It hasn't aged well. I do get it very hard language to learn as well. I love how this film at Times. Just looks like a political accounting comes comes alive and it has the individual whip but also that this this pointed nature when this does the ballet with the inflatable balloon globe which which gets to the heart off. You know that that sounds Harry madness but also how he sees himself as this graceful baletic bigger muscles must also being an obsolete. Embezzle medialab is when he says stripping the one of his generals of all his medals it does. He know you know they they used to. How does the sentimental ending this? Oh you know Charlie Chaplin compared to all the great silent. Comedians is always always charged as being the great sentimentalist. His final monologue hair is seen seen as almost the his his grow sentimental moment. How does that work? I think watching that today it stands up because of how much what he's saying rings true today. I think it almost like torpedoes the film because it so it's such an obvious I- breaking the fourth wall moment like he isn't the trample all the Jewish Babo hinkle anymore. Anymore he is. It's just Charlie Chaplin speaking basically directly to the audience. But you know this is organic. Bill paid off massively at the time is his biggest box of success. And I mean when when this came out remember the the. US was still officially in a knock knock par allied movement and was was very much like not involved volt woman really and I think they were especially the the US government were a little bit wary of criticising satirizing. Hitler and Chaplin was this huge movie star and he had he had the the the the money festival must be he was able to get a put up. A film is made and it just showed how I history has shown how how Roy was basically. It must have been absolutely exhilarating to be a a film. Go and not not deign age and have that happen happen at the end. Why Charlie Chaplin a personal relationship with for many decades by that point and I haven't heard him speak and speaks at great length writer? You must have been chilling. Wanted to say I must say this. Isn't this where does this rank few in the movies. I actually think it's one of his best and I think a lot of what we're talking about here. You know how it holds up on. Its own if you're talking about. I mean he made so many great movies silting. Modern Times is probably my favorite stove but yeah he's just M- he made so many amazing see movies But I think certainly that if you just take that monologue at the end on its own and I'm sure you can just watch the whole thing on youtube or wherever but of Serb would talk to go out and watch the whole film You can't you can kind of an exit from the film in a way and it does it does. It doesn't how hold up on its own and I'm I'm really resonates and you know I think I think it's also colored slightly by the knowledge of what happened shopping after this. Because you know he he. He wasn't someone who is necessarily persecuted by external forces he was someone who's persecute Bison country and essentially exiled to Switzerland and I think he was. There was a lot of talk at the time of him. Being a communist potentially in the house at American Committee will after Durum and he he he basically when lift rest of his life and I slow from the US and is is really sad watching this film now in the in the knowledge of that and you know if only they had kind of casually taken on board what he was he was saying the message Shona Get Crossed Fascinating Sniping turning point in his career because he never really is this. Massive titanic figure again is why I probably prefer to make before and after so you have the films he made during the sound period where he was resisting. The coming of the talkies with with city lights modern times than the two after the great dictator where he makes mischief Asia the do which is his almost like darkening of the Charlie Chaplin mythos and limelight. which is him looking back to his days on the stage but these films that he's making kink in like in exile? I mean in exile in a nice cushy mansion and Switzerland but he was self imposed exile to a point but essentially it was very difficult for him to continue making films in Hollywood and even someone with his clout and financial backing. While if we agree with Ricky Jay. It's no none of these film. Stars can tell us anything because complicit in the Hollywood system right anyway eightieth anniversary this year. Maybe we should go and rewatch that recommend anyway. That's is the great dictator. Please do let us know what you think if you watch that. So if you watch any of the Charlie Chaplin Films Go further down the rabbit hole so many good movies and shorts as well to find their Next week as Hannah teased. We have a hidden life.

The Frame Oscar Special

"It is time for the Academy Awards. So let's meet the people who star in the year's best movies. I didn't want to feel comfortable. They are somewhat the most unlikely feminist. That you will find why you're making this movie and why you called me to play you somewhere along the line. I had to find myself as a person person who was inconsistent and couldn't sing live Cynthia. A revolt Charlene's Thera Antonio Banderas and Renee Zellweger are with us plus many of the filmmakers makers behind this year's best picture nominees including little women's Greta Gerwig and Joe Joe Rabbits Tyco Ytd. I wanted to pleased every single piston with at this film. It would not be this film and it would be one race you you you picked up all the cards I put down. And we'll parasite make academy awards history. It's the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn. We'll be right back. We are ready. Let's do it. Welcome to the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. Welcome to the one million breath and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to get anybody. I'M GONNA find you're GONNA give you. Massive snow snowed. Everybody who bought a ticket told somebody to buy a ticket. Thank you I love you if I may be so honored to have all all the female nominees and every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors Maryland you do it everybody else will come on all right all right all right. I'm John Horn host to the frame and joining me is Jacqueline coli editor at Ron Tomatoes Jacqueline. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me John so I know we're only a couple seconds in certified fresh so far. I think you're doing great. You're certified fresh and honestly I would say all the best picture nominees are also pretty awesome. It's probably the highest average on the tomato meter of best picture nominees. We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger. Who Plays Judy Garland in Judy Yukon? There's an audience other ways. It hears you sing my mouth driving. It was judy takes place in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty judy. Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing. You In me love. I DIDN'T WANNA DO I. I didn't want to do in a and all that somewhere along on the line I had decided to find myself as a person who was inconsistent and couldn't sing live and I was a person who is who had a tiny voice and we shouldn't try to hissing big belter songs and who would never perform live in front of living human beings because that would be a terrible idea but I just sort of trusted the process and to to start working and started working with local coaches who different techniques and taught me different? Things began with contorted my body to try you know somehow on how make that sound come out is terrible it might have been. There is a fascinating review that we found of the original concerts in nineteen sixty eight in the observer and this is what the critics said in part. She doesn't really give a concert. She conducts a seance. She evokes pity and sorrow like like no other superstar. I mean this is her bliss. We're talking about performance and connecting with audiences. And obviously it's her gift and it's also what she relies on for her her freedom and financial stability and her ability to take care of herself. She was in debt and she didn't have a home place to live She was having difficulty difficulty finding work in the United States because her reputation was not one of of great reliability and then there's this addiction The chaos I suppose is just what you see on the outside is usually a manifestation of what's on the inside and all of those things one of those things that she he was experiencing at the time would have been enough to To break a person and I think that that's what so interesting about talking about this time in her life. I don't I don't think that there's shame in it. I think that it just really highlights. How exceptional she was that? She was able to overcome all all of this mess and took form. That was renee. Zellweger nominated for her work in. Judy you're listening. Ascended the frame Oscar special. I'm John Horn host of the frame on KABC in Los Angeles. And I'm here with Jacquelyn coli editor at rotten tomatoes. Let's now turn into. Charlie's Thera in bombshell which she also produced theran plays former Fox News anchor. Megan Kelly who partners with other women at that network to take down the founder Roger Ailes. It's like we're telling women go on. Speak up for yourself just know. The entire network is with Roger. No one will believe you. They'll call you a liar. Oh and as for your career you want the Simon's airtime go ahead hall the Paranoid Man who decides your salary pervert and do that. On a anonymous hotline. He controls on on a phone. has a contractual right to record. Jesus Christ you Think Women Are Idiots. Honestly I was completely mesmerized by bombshell I was actually one of the biggest fans ends of the movie. It was kind of a bit critically divisive. I think not a lot of people liked giving some humanity to Megan Kelly but I personally found shelley's performance to be incredible and just kind of had to say about the balls it took for her to take on that role to produce it herself and to say that she wanted to tell this me too story I did talk with Charlie's an end. She told me why she wanted to make the film and why it was important to make it now. The script was written pre. Eh Time's up pre Harvey Weinstein. There wasn't any of what is out there right now in our culture as far as this conversation it's it felt else somewhat like a story in its own silo But but people were definitely kind of whispering about a lot of what what was about to come out and so you could feel it you could feel there was like this kind of like under this bubbling that was happening in the pot was about to boil over. We definitely felt that and so when we read the script we were aware a little bit. I mean nobody could predict how big all of this would be but we were aware that there was something timely about the script. How would you describe I bought? This movie is about it. It's a movie about a group of very unlikely women who if you were you know writing the fictional story you would not necessarily cast as your central characters to tell a story of taking down the biggest media mogul And yet if they did why were they unlikely. Do you think we'll because I think a lot of them You Know Gretchen. And and Megan had made some comments comments prior to all of this about sexual harassment that I found not necessarily helpful to the cause of a lot of women who are experiencing sexual harassment. I think there there is a conservative conservative view on sexual harassment. As how do you believe women. How do you know what's true how the emphasis is always on doubting the victim victim doubting the woman and I just thought it was interesting that they had had those views before in the past about sexual harassment? Megan Kelly Famously Asli Refused to be called a feminist. You know they are somewhat than most unlikely feminists that you will find. That was Charlene Charlie Farren. She's nominated for her. Lead role in bombshell. This is the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. The other nominated lead actress. Chris plane a real person on screen. Is Cynthia revoke she plays Harriet. Tubman inherent rescue and slaves requires skill and careful. Planning it requires weeding Harry. Can you read a sign or map. Can you read it all attention on China head. God's voice more clearly you know what would happen if you got caught. They would torture you until you pointed them right to this office. You Got Lucky Harry and there's nothing more you can do. Don't you tell me when I came to Cynthia's actually a double Oscar nominee with also for best original song for the song. Stand up which she co wrote for. Harriet and I honestly would be happy to see if she One for that one should be the youngest winner ever e- God of course is Emmy Grammy Oscar. Tony here's my conversation with Cynthia Rio recorded around the the time that Harriet came out the most important thing for me was really about trying to to bring her to life. You know people. People don't know that she had emotions and she had feelings and she could get angry and she could be joyous and hope broken all of those things that we we as humans experience and so I I wanted to be as fully emotionally available as possibly could MHM Not every actor gets to go right his or her theme song but Cynthia you wrote a song called. Stand up with Joshua Campbell Bobbin Robin walking with my face turn to wait almost. Show the Music is I like to think is my second language so I I use it a lot to communicate to tell stories. I write my music that means I. Can I get to speak things. I probably couldn't speak out loud Three music and so to get a chance to I guess use my voice for her Myself out the way and find a voice that felt right for for Harriet to us in the pure sense for communication was really special and where we were just felt like it was A A little bit like hallowed ground. We WanNA plantation so to be able to sing those virtual Z- For people to to call to people felt really empowering. Cynthia revolt has to Oscar nominations for her work in. Harriet lead actress and Best Song. This is is the frame Oscar special. I'm John Horn hosted the frame on. KABC in Los Angeles. And I'm joined in studio by Jacqueline Coli editor at rotten tomatoes jacqueline. What do you think Joe Rabbit? The World War Two satire from TYCO. YTD I loved this movie. I know it as a divisive film and not everyone when got its humor but put me in the camp of Mel Brooks who made the producers and a whole bunch of other people in Hollywood and a lot of people in the KADEMI. I might add who love this fell. Well I think this is a really remarkable film. I also thank even though it said in the nineteen forties. It's really topical in terms of what has to say about how hate is taught. And how we marginalize. I other people Joe Joe. Rabbit has six nominations including best picture and best costume design by. Maya's Rubio the frame contributor Andrea Gutierrez. Gutierrez has this story about the woman behind the costumes in Judge Rabbit. This is a mecca of costumes in America. Mayes Rubio is giving me a tour of Western costume a massive costume house in north. Hollywood look good thank you. Thank you Taylor in the whole town. who was a costume costume designer? And this is not a store. It's an archive western costume open. More than one hundred years ago. And it's been making renting out and cataloging costumes ever since I mean. Look at this this one the tag. It's very old so one this is what they marketed but about this a lot earlier. Nineteen probably this is where to bail. Did a lot of research Joe Rabbit now they call me a scared rabbits that some say whatever they want people used to say a lot of nasty things about me. Oh this guy's would lunatic Rubio's second film with writer and Director Taika. YTD The look. The film was key in establishing child's viewpoint but do vale worked with Ytd the production designer and the director of photography developed the film's Vivid Color Palette. Especially when when it comes to Joe. Joe's mother Rosie played by Scarlett Johansson Intentional Colours where to show How a child looks looks at? His mother is Rubio's love and extensive knowledge of textiles. That really put her in the head space of the characters they have this. You have peace. That'd that'd be today for Rosie. Wha what was the piece that meant the most to her. I think that they're brusies. Sweater Looks Cozy Z.. Linden it's got a bold zigzag pattern and brown and blue against a mint green background wearing it. Rosie stands in stark contrast the Joe Joe in his khaki uniform of fictionalized Nazi Youth Group. I wanted to sink that she got that sweater. Because Sony Delinea- GEICO The the exhibit. And say Oh look it gives you wear this. There's no bigger inspiration for Rosie style than the Ukrainian French artists Sonia. You did Loney hurt bowl. Textile Designs of the Early Twentieth Century Miedema known to an artist. Type like Rosie. Google mapped out an entire backstory rosie. She was an actress in an important theatre company. Her friends were all artists and she liked to go dancing and her distinctive of two tone shoes until the day before showed the the first time. The shoes were undecided. Indecisive of like what do we do then take us it. That's it we're going for. The Red Shoes Rubio collects textiles. Wherever she travels? It's that knowledge. gave her the tools no which pieces to rent in which to to make this is the most creative Part of Within cost him this is why all these like Nancy. And how these uh-huh said they all have been in western causing for such a long time. This sensibility of constructing and deconstructing is something Rubio has cultivated. Since that she was a child growing up in Mexico. City was about five. You know when we were like playground so we were group of little girls and we'll play anything but I always wanted to say yes but first we're gonNA drop for that now we'll have time for eligible splitting off. We have to get into the costumes. Breath mice gus. The animal as she was then known was only twenty when she moved to Los Angeles in the early eighties she ended up in Italy because of Bruno to bail her husband and an accomplished production designer himself who passed away in twenty eleven and no doubt revel in her current success. He'll be organizing parties and make making all kinds of crazy wonderful things to celebrate. He will be very proud proud of her Academy Award Nomination Nomination for the frame. I'm during his. Yes coming up on the frame Oscar special nominated leading men. Men and Tonio Banderas and Adam driver. Plus how the composer for Joker Channel The adult line of the Joaquin Phoenix character. In the film score stick around. We'll be right back. Welcome back to the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn to host the frame and I'm joined in studio by Jacqueline Coli editor her at rotten tomatoes. Welcome Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph Bender and Amy Poehler. Okay John. Let's pause for a second and talk. About the telecast it's self for the second year in a row the Oscars will be hostess. We are not your host but we're going to stand here a little too long so that the people who get USA Essay today tomorrow. We'll think that we hosted. What do you make of the new trend of award ceremonies without hosts if they could only short in them to under in sixteen hours or fifteen whatever they came in last year? That would be great. I would say it work last year. They just got to move this sucker along though I mean. They've tried lied. Different things moving. Some categories to televise commercial breaks. That didn't go over very well. Be Doing awards during the commercials but we will. We'll be presenting commercials during the awards. I'd say it's still doll. I just wanted to move along faster. I mean I think last year I think they were not ah far over. But it's still it's a three hour word show and nobody. There is actually happy to be there unless they're going to win so I don't think it's going to be a fun time for most folks. I don't know how you you make. These award shows any more entertaining. I think the last one I really really really enjoyed was the ellen and then before that Hugh Jackman Yeah and the problem for the Oscars. Unlike the Grammy's where you can have show-stopping musical numbers you can't do an Oscar ceremony where he's like here's how cinematographer works or here's the art of of visual effects. It's just never going to be as interesting as performance being the grammy ceremony. I you know. Every ceremony comes down to the quality of the speeches. which is the speeches are always so bad? They should all get. Brad Pitt's speechwriter. Because he's been doing it pretty well. This season from Quentin Tarantino's feet to to being a single dad and tender. Everyone should hire whoever he hired. Okay let's look at some of the male acting races. We're going to start with a couple of actors who are nominate for movies. They made with longtime collaborators. I'm talking about Antonio Banderas and Pedro Almodovar's for paint glory and Adam driver and Noah Baumbach for marriage story. Can I just say there was any justice in this world. I would rather see either one of these to win on Oscar night I loved both of these performances immensely mentally and I think they're both better more actually performances. But I think I don't think the Oscar voters are going to go with me They're probably going to definitely go with Joaquin. But I loved both of these particularly Antonio when I saw that at Cannes where he won best actor I thought he was a shoe in for the Oscar. But then I'm David interpreting. Nearly excuse me when I spoke with Bandera about pain and glory. We actually started by talking about how he and Almodovar's I met in the nineteen eighties. I was at the National Theatre I was. I think it was nineteen years old Karadzic is nine years older than me. I was with a group of actors outside of the theater in a coffee shop cafe and this guy came I always remember. He came with a red briefcase on he took over the table. You know in a kind of a monologue. He very funny. I don't remember what he was talking about but it was. It was funny. It was fast. It was very ingenious comedy made and by the time that he was leaving he just looked at me and didn't know me. He says you should may movies. Because you've got a very romantic face. And he left a native Suri or whatever and so I ask. Who's he's this guy and then some very you know bright mind of the moment? He's name. Is Pedro Almodovar and he just made a movie where he will never do another one walk. He'll do another dozen or twenty one one of the major themes of this movie is reconciliation about trying to atone for mistakes patching touching up differences forgiveness. And it's a story about an actor and filmmaker in the film who are reconciled thing and it's also about a filmmaker Pedro Melbourne. Over and an actor Antonio Banderas reconciling. At what point. Are you trying to figure out if you're making a move you're telling your own life story or you actually have already seen line. It's very very difficult now and very special especially with our because a federal breath sima each cinema. Everything scene is cinema. How much of his life is in this domain? Where was he in his own personal life when he made Pentagon side of him on in the movie? That is very clear. which is he's physically better who suffer These are beautiful moment in the movie. They're almost very fast. But it's very beautiful as he's he's just about to be in surgery and the doctor cabinets salutation he says. So how are you on. He said to the doctor. I cannot die here I am providing again all great. So what did you doing a comedy or tragedy says life. I'm doing something about Life Bong and he'd lose consciousness inches knit so in a way. He's sending a message that I won't leave. Antonio Banderas is nominated for his work in pain in in glory. That film is also nominated in the newly renamed category of best international feature spoiler parasites going to win this is the frame Oscar Skar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn. The host of the frame and I'm Jacqueline Choline editor at rotten tomatoes. Adam driver and Noah Baumbach have made four movies together their latest one marriage story has six Oscar nominations including one for driver. I honestly could not believe how incredible Adam driver was in this film home as a child of divorce. Personally this film hit me in places that I didn't think I was ready for when I first saw it as a married man it hit me and places. I really really wasn't ready for. It's a difficult movie to watch. I like my father but I am not like my mother. And you're like my father. You're also like my mother. The bad things about all of these people. I spoke with Adam driver about his collaborations with directors that he's worked with multiple times including Noah Baumbach. It was recorded in front of a live audience at the telluride Film Festival. Where marriage story premiered? There's there's something that we are way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. They don't take it for granted that we're making a movie. It's has the potential to reach a a place that has a far away and either give language to a culture that's completely different than ours and someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right now for this amount of time to do this thing that will last forever and labeled the feeling and how powerful that is you know why take that for granted why show up and kind of wing it you know or Not consider what it is you're saying and that no detail is is too small now. Obviously there's traps and all of that you can get so worked up and details that you're you're trying to control everything and don't leave room for you know something. That's more abstract with those people. They're brilliant writers and create a set an environment onset. Where you're free to to get all those things that you hope from from people? You're free to get it wrong and you're free to explore you. Were recently doing. Burn this and I'm wondering when you're doing doing a play and then going into film or television. What are the things that you might miss but retain as an actor? WHO's doing a show in front of a different audience every night when you're not able to replicate that on a film set yeah? It's a totally different thing. It's working with Noah for example. He likes to do a lot of takes and that actually it feels more familiar to working on a play because the lines of the lines. There's no there's no Improv. This is what it is. We're blocking it out. But the intention can be a a million different things and he structured the day smartly so we have enough time to explore all the possibilities of what it could be not just arbitrarily but I mean sometimes sometimes you have to rebel against him than a and just do it the way you want to do it just to shock yourself and shock the system maybe come up with something better but you know it's like a whole run of a rehearsal truncated into a day. which is I think rare with someone like that? Was Adam driver. He's nominated for lead actor. It's the frame Oscar special from KABC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn here with Jacquelyn coli editor at rotten tomatoes. So John The man that many Oscar predictors believe will win. This category is walking Phoenix for his role role. In Joker Thomas Wayne ever think what it's like to be someone like me to be somebody but themselves they don't they think that we'll just sit there and take it like good little boys so joker. I think unbelievably has the most nominations of any film with eleven including waiting for its director Todd Phillips but it's a very divisive moving. What's your take? I think that joker is the most two thousand nineteen in movie that we could ever make it is a movie centered in on a white man who feels that he's being sort of marginalized in society and he's lashing hang out at that In a sea of faces that do not look like him. I mean that is simply the story of joker both the box office the critical reception and everything about it simply states. This is a movie of our time whether some people didn't like it or not you cannot deny that it hit in on something that a lot of people resonated with among the nominations for jokers one for its score by composer Hilda Guna daughter. She's only the ninth woman nominated in the music scoring category and she told the frames. Jonathan Jonathan Shift how she went about making music director. Todd Phillips Experience Music Music Very physically as I read the script. I have kind of physical reaction to the story. And it was kind of very focused on the chest area and the and the the hand movements and then They used a lot of music whilst they were shooting and it was just there was one scene in particular alerts. That was just incredible to see how Joakim without us talking about it. All I had no dialogue with him about it but he did exactly the save movements that I was feeling as I say you know wrote wrote the original themes it was just such a magical process. I thought it was really important to kind of feel like we were like in his head and it's really close to him. It's all kind of his inner landscape basically the music. It doesn't really underscore much but it's really a present as his inner character and that's kind of what I was trying to do with the instrumentation of like in the beginning of the of the film. Almost like you're listening just a one incident plane but at the same time. There's there's this kind of huge energy like there's actually like one hundred people playing this lex Brodie's melodies but you can almost not tear them. They're almost like kind of hidden energy. That's like his aggression and the feeling of this kind of underlying something is about to kind of burst from out of the out of the shadows and it was hard to have two hundred people like not full time. Oh so it was a bit of a constraint for people basically not play not to make Crisanto is like really interesting energy through the themes kind of you you know stay largely the same but the orchestration and the you know the size and the scope of heaviness of the of the music just kind of gets larger. She's kind of you you just Yep getting more frustrated than aggressive and then in the teachers like explodes. That was Hilter Guna daughter. She composed the score for joker. You're listening to the frame Oscar Special Special I'm John Horn hosted the frame from KPCC in Los Angeles. And I'm Jacqueline Kelly editor at rotten tomatoes. Next up we can talk about a film with three Oscar nominations including best adapted screenplay and the two performances from Jonathan. Pryce Anthony Hopkins two popes. Did you think to Pope John. So netflix has a couple of movies. He's in the Oscar race. This is the one. That's not getting a lot of talk. The Irishman is. I actually think this is a better movie. I'm sorry but I feel that way. I thought it was really well directed by Fernando Mariah's and I thought it was really well acted I mean I love this movie and I was a little bit surprised. It didn't get more Oscar attention you know. I think I'm one of the reasons for that. I also saw this film at the telluride Film Festival. I enjoyed it. I thought it was incredible and I love the actually performances but I thought it was going to get lost in the conversations. I was was actually surprised. Even though I didn't predict it what happened that it got three nominations that it did but I was still very happy for it especially for the screenplay which I think it was from a play it was adapted apted from a play originally and that is what I love about it if felt like movie theater in like the best way shape or form I think Anthony McCartan should honestly honestly be further in the conversation this year for the screenplay unfortunately he's going up against two powerhouses in Georgia Rabbit and little women I talked with Anthony McCartan about the two popes. Here's here's what he had to say. This whole thing started with me. I was in Rome and My beloved cousin died and my sister said. I don't know if you're anyone anyone Eric Church. Which Apple could you light a candle for her? And I thought I'll go to the Vatican so I went to the Vatican and there was a lot of security and I went into some Peters Square. It was a mess and he was up on the super screen Saturday and the roster Quality of this guy was palpable. I mean more than my eastern quarter and I was with my girlfriend Eva. Her father had happened to work work under Pope Benedict when he was bishop in Munich and so she knew quite a bit about benedict and I knew there were two popes coexisting existing. And I said to a we're so there's Francis where's benedict and she said. Oh He's sequestered in a convent Way Back in behind the Vatican Wall. I started the thank heaven a minute. Seven hundred years since this happened the last time. What therefore would have made need the most traditional pope of the modern era do the most untraditional thing you can imagine and retire and I thought they must be a story here? Your style and your birds are entirely different to mind. I don't agree with most of the things you say. Think of who but Some strange reason now I can see and assess differ a goalie. I cannot do this on the said they suppose ability take you might be chosen. It could never be me. So it's a statement. Rebuttal Rebuttal Statement. It's a tennis match between the two and and I'm leaving the known statements. These two people together and emitting touches of humanizing detail. which are all true? Anthony McCartan is nominated for best adapted screenplay for the two popes coming up on the frame Oscar. Special we get into the best picture race. We hear from the director of Parasite Bond June hope. Greta Gerwig who made little women takeaway. Td from Joe. Joe Rabbit and Sam Mendez from nineteen seventeen. Plus how Quentin Tarantino turn in present day. Hollywood back in time. It's the frame Oscar special from KABC in Los Angeles stay with us Welcome back to the frame Oscar. Special thanks for joining us. I'm John Horn host of the frame from ABC in Los Angeles. And I'm Jacqueline. Choline editor Keratin tomatoes. Okay John Let's talk the big one best picture. The nominated films for best picture are four versus Ferrari Joe Joe Rabbit. The Irishman richman nineteen seventeen little women parasite once upon a time in Hollywood joker and mirror story. So we've got nine nominees. The academy could have chosen up to ten And there's one film in our best picture nominees that's unlike any of the others and that's little women. It's the only nominee directed by a woman and the only one fronted entirely highly Bhai women the writer director is Greta. Gerwig she loves little women by Louisa May alcott. In fact she was hired to write the screenplay for which she's nominated for adapted screenplay screenplay before she got the Gig to direct the film but it was really after her success with Lady Bird which was nominated for best picture and which she was nominated for directing this this time around that Sony asked her to direct little women. Little women has been a book that I have loved my whole life in very deep way to the point where my memories and the memories of the March sisters were intertwined in that way that I think books of your youth can mean something even beyond being books. Because they're the they become part of your family I think that's that's the magic of Reading when you're a child is the distinction between fiction and reality is thin for you or it was for me anyway. I hadn't read it since I was about fourteen or fifteen and then I read it in my early thirty S. I think when I turned thirty and I All the stuff came out at me in the book that I it not. When I was a child child John It seems to me that the big test of the Kademi efforts to diversify its membership hinges on this next film parasite the movie will be has six nominations and it's a near Loch to win international feature but if it takes home best picture too then it could tell us something it could could tell us that for the first time the academy picks foreign language movies? It's best picture. And I think that would represent kind of the diversifying of the membership in terms of beyond North American boarders but also parasite is daring film. It is challenging in terms of its narrative structure it has very gothic ending but it is a movie that I I think plays a little younger. The question will be if all of the younger members of the Academy get behind it that sets path to win. Best Picture agreed that it's not necessarily for sure that everybody who is one of these new members going to get behind parasite but the one thing I will and can tell you Bong Jun Ho has been essentially a rockstar in every single little room that he's walked into since the film premiered. I actually met with Bond Jun Ho and his interpreter. The telluride film festival. Where parasite had its North American debut? Yes yes someone said. They're just lying for parasite my movie crazy. Look at that and shouting to the movies. Very voting's outings of please don't waste your time and we talked. He was watching filmgoers filing in to see the movie. When I think about parasite I think about the host? I think about snow piercer about Okra. There are so many fantastical elements to all of those films and they're difficult to categorize and yet they all seem seem to be about real world issues they can be about consumption they can be about class struggle they can be about families. Ju- find a storyteller that that sometimes the more extreme story becomes more real it can play. That's home to jobs. That was an animal so it's not as if I intend to make particularly political film with propaganda. My effort is always to delve into the really mundane in small daily issues. That surround me but once I delve into those issues I find myself ending up in a dark cave of capitalism and so it doesn't happen because I wanted to but I just end up dealing with those issues like my goal is always making funny movie. You're listening to the frame Oscar Special Oh from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn to host of the frame. I'm Jacqueline Choline editor at rotten tomatoes. I think it is really coming down to parasite site in one thousand nine hundred seventeen nine hundred seventeen with Roger. Deakins kind of single takes Matala. Graffiti is an achievement in film production. The question Russian is one thousand nine hundred about something bigger than what the story is about. I think parasite has that in. Its favour how people react to nine. Hundred Seventeen asks the craft of the film and then about what it has to say in a broader context and I think the technical achievement is what most people sort of like latch onto. Remember the marriage between clean the director of the cinematographer visual effects and the actors. This was seamless. They had to rehearse it like theater and I think people are going to resonate with that more. Maybe maybe than what the film has to say. I think the message of the film if we were going to say one and it's kind of hard to even look at it is the idea of Continuing futile journey to you sort of journey against all the odds. Because you feel this need to carry on a message I talk percent Mendez. The director of the film who also won the DJ Prize for directing this year and Roger Deakins weekends who I think is going to win the cinematography Oscar about their collaboration. The key is that you don't want to feel audience manipulated so that he's tricky because you you are aware that this is a real historic event and there's a certain amount of respect needs to be paid for the people who lived through it and it's not an entertainment attainment but at the same time you want people to fear what the characters are fearing and Tara and adrenaline is exactly what they lived through. The one shot helps with that at because I think you feel in a weird way. PA- LYNN CLAUSTROPHOBIC Roger. You're trying to make this immersive and yet their requirements for the story worry in terms of what have to be in the shots and I'm thinking of animals rats birds. How much of that are you able to shoot practically so the actors are reacting to? What's around them? And how much by necessity do you have to add through visual effects toward the end. I mean some of those obviously. CG There's a real baby. I was just GonNa say when you think oh well the baby's CJ was one particular baby Semedo dish or whatever came on it was like the fourth both one thing and he was like puffing every every test. We've talked about nineteen seventeen. We've talked about parasite I'm GonNa say if I were voting. I would vote for Judge Robert for best picture. Yeah I would definitely vote for Joe Joe Rabbit. I absolutely think that it's the one to that. I think if if you look back later we will say okay. This is the message we wanted to send in two thousand. Nineteen Nazis are bad. Kids are good and we all need to have a laugh and let's talk about degree have difficulty. This is a movie that if you get it wrong. It is springtime for Hitler. And it isn't it is a movie that is thoughtful. It has movie that is sweet. Beat movie that's funny as movie. That is moving and if you look at the math of it that is almost impossible to pull off. I absolutely agree. and Ah honestly it's to me the best part about it as a steady wine to make. PG thirteen phone because he wanted kids to see this movie because he was disturbed that a lot of children. I think he read a poll in the Guardian where the vast majority of millennials did not know what Auschwitz was or anything about the Holocaust so the fact that it's become this educational tool now where USC and the show is center. We're going to use it as something to teach about Intolerance and hate the legacy of this film is something that should be honored by the academy. It's already being honored by folks in the education system. Here's what tiger by. Td had to say about why he wanted to make this film. I always knew the people who embrace the film and there'd be racist and if either or No I mean it's in America. People see the wood divisive is is is a very negative thing or polarizing. The rest of US feel feel at its sixty quite a worthwhile thing to eh have put upon a piece of art you making another. I want to have pleased every single person with this film. It would not be this film and it would not be Manama films. Do be someone else's film and it would be boring but yeah no. I always knew that there would be people who would not be an unfair enough. It's it is a hard subject to deal with and especially if if it's something that's very close to you did read somewhere. Someone is something. I don't think we've really food huma with the subject. Matter which is insane to me. I mean there was one movie in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine which the great dictator yet. So it's new. It's not a new idea. You're listening to the frame oster special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm the host of the frame John Horn and I'm Jacqueline Choline editor for rotten tomatoes. It is possible that there could be a lot of love for the Irishman or Quentin Tarantino's once upon a time in Hollywood. So Martin Scorsese's film film about Mobsters Gwen Tarantino movie about working in the film business. What do you think do they have a chance of picking up something outside of Brad Pitt? I think Quinn Tarintino has more than the fighting chance on original screenplay. I think right now the safe money's on parasite but don't count out quitting Tarantino's love within the academy They're definitely going to get Brad Pitt and I also think they're probably going to get production design When you can boast that you shut down a freeway as part of your production design? That is literally part of their pitch when they did the bake off. It's kind of hard to argue against. The production design is pretty good frame contributor. Tim Grieving drove around. Hollywood with some key members of Tarantino's team to actually she figure out how they transform the city back to nineteen sixty nine. I meet location manager. Rick Schuler and production designer Barbara Ling. At a very twenty nineteen starbucks bucks in the corner of Sunset and Gower we all hop in a car together and they take me on a trip through Hollywood back in time. Hollywood is a destination now and and it's it we he wanted to create more than that. It's like you get here. You go aware his Hollywood. What's kind of an idea and this movie was making it a place more so than anything else has done before for? We're right now in front of the. What is now the Aquarius Theatre? Rebirth on Sunset Boulevard we recreated at least one section of the building. This is were hair. Premiered in his sixties. We had painters doing this and they told me they said you know this has to be the most fun project because people stop all day long and just scream up to them. Thank you for putting get back. We drive down sunset and stop in front of the famous Cinerama. Dome Barbara surprised at how any of these places retained their fifty year old characteristics. It was a huge to do to turn back time. It's unfortunate that in La. We tear down as much as in this fast as we can of any of the old iconic of pieces the few that we have left like the CINERAMA. Dome the very facade the marquee is still the original and the golf ball top but of course in that timeframe there was nothing but parking lots on either side of it. So you have you know we did The premiere of Krakatoa here. But you could only shoot tied in because you had of course this whole world around it. Now that Looks nothing like the sixties but at least there's a little piece of something left but that was rare now or in the touristy heart of Hollywood on Hollywood boulevard tempted to go inside a famous restaurant for a mid day. Martini caboose Oh and francs featured in a big way in the movie. We repainted and did all kinds of things. They're the nice thing about that. That restaurant is that they've preserved pretty much the integrity of everything. That's there from the leather and the booths to all of that kind of stuff. So that was a wonderful gem to find mind over here or in front of Barbara this hologram place here. We used to be the PUSSYCAT theater and we turn that back to the PUSSYCAT. But the whole facade back on their people were like Whoa. What is the shutting down Hollywood Boulevard for two? Today's wasn't an easy feat to convince the city officials and business owners. Rick sure knew we need to bring in a big gun. Quentin Tarantino Egos will wreck. Do you think you can get Hollywood boulevard. Shut down nine blocks for two days in a row. I'm thinking I think I can get there seventy percent of the way but I think if you come and speak to your enthusiasm about having in grown up in Hollywood owning a theater in Hollywood doing a movie about Hollywood and that that'll probably be a tipping point and so he was willing to come and then they had us leave the room and a minute later I walked back in and it was a unanimous vote. They were like if he's GonNa show up you know we'll do it. Jacqueline we have come to the end of the show. The Oscars are Sunday night. How are we gonNA spend the night? Where do you watch? Oh where do I watch this year. I'm actually going to be broadcasting. Live to the folks in London on Sky TV So I'm actually going to be on TV during the event. But I'll be watching it from there. Always you from inside the theater you have to look up in the rafters. But I'll be in their wave frame. Oscar special is edited and produced is by Darby Maloney along with producers Monica Bushman.

Zinta terms when take a very funny as Hitler Yeah but then there are a Lotta times when Hitler are the Nazi humor in here most of course you can imagine a friend coming in so much trouble but when I look at that I think that the the humor that they have here because I guess I should explain this a little bit too you have she's kind she treats me like a person you two seem to be getting plus icing Joe Joe Rabbit right here you know because this is I mean needless to say this is a horrible world but it's the because Gioja Wayne the most relatable he adores Hitler and just wants to grow up to be the greatest Nazi Jew killer only world that Joe Joe knows and we're seeing it through his eyes am Joe Joe actually loves this world look crazy s you know you sit in back Kinda still living on a dream that he probably the visionary probably had at one time you not look at his men and I can tell you probably setback the scene right now Mr Take not so cool what do you want me to direct a movie for you wants to be part of a club works for the movie because fortunately Imaginary Hitler allow the notch humor that is not that is not the big part of the film what it's the beginning you think that's all it's going to be and it's not that yes a lot of this works by seeing the world through Joe Joe's Jo-jo who played wonderfully to say young actor right here roaming Griffin Davis yeah he's he's incredible at first you think you're going to hate Joe Joe you quickly realize he's just a little innocent boy who's a product of his environment and he's just naive man he bought alum mentally challenged I want to be a fireman but you go here you know you should you should hate this kid but really terrible okay not laughing out loud at this anything well most of it is you know you're hanging with the Nazis and the mostly the Nazi youth it was a tense wasn't my going to adhere to Church WanNa go she ate and at that point his dreams of rising up in the Hitler youth are ruined and then his world is turned even more upside down when do something that's different from what we said and you could for me as kind of predictable right there some of those things you know there might be worth a chuckle him having to stay at home more often learns that his mother is actually hoarding a young Jewish girl played here names supply by Thomas Seen Mackenzie and when I say is his world is turned upside down is turned completely upside down because now Joe Joe has to confront his fee skylight yeah you're right where do you go but and it's a Lotta look these terrible things we're doing but this one normalized to us and that's humor that's that's I'm not saying this with myself I'm not saying I'm saying that for Gioja for Joe Joe Joe Farms himself reluctantly attracted to this girl I mean for a movie that starts out like it is mother raisin and and also real Hitler out there somewhere yeah this kid is off man and in what t t o o t w you know we AH TAKEOVER TT as Hitler which look I'm GonNa say he has its funny moments and also forgot got some Ju blood in them he don't make a bad hitler come off as actually hitting he don't WanNa come across as actually look on he's not a pure Aryan blood but I'm just saying for Brown ain't that bad the Wes Anderson Movie The yeah it is Wes Anderson movie that he never made it really becomes a sweep coming of age movie but it starts funny starts out a straight up comedy and then as a as a starts to play well a lot of people were mad about that begging days later he's sitting I ju can laugh about missing the rest of y'all can't have too long especially when you get introduced to Elsa right here it takes on more of a serious tone now the movies never completely serious but it does have the moments of the of the movie Azzam Wow you know Jews before their tails and horns have grown in X. wow actually kinda sexy it's Fun Georgia sucks that everything he blows himself over the grenade and you realize is like man you know I this is why the Nazis lost this warm just watching the two of them interact with each other it's a shame there in Nazi Germany I 'cause his mother man me this is probably scholar hands best performance to date yeah I would say so she she is a great character not only Scarlett Johansson good but that is a great character awesome Hitler's biggest fan only thing and he says what when I grow up I wanNA kill as many as I can what he wanted I mean only she is a single mother but she's also raising a fucking nutcase I mean she's she's almost scared of this boy away while she yes she saw like sleep in my favorite moments where they did take it a little more seriously even though is still kind of lighten tone my favorite moments between him and with the movie and let me see if I can find something right here because this Martin you hit it I've got to pull up the clip for but this starts out let me see here it starts out today I had pulled up actually I don't know I forgot but it starts out just like a she has to keep a tone of Lebanon for this kid and when when they do that those are some of the greatest scenes in in the movie because she keeps that tone even and let's see it and but throughout all being a single mother in raising a little crazy as kids she's she still remains very loving and playful knowing no it really does and it just Kinda naturally falls into that and you don't see a common yeah when you were when you start out with doc I'm especially hungry tonight so maybe I'll just finish yours if some of these this kid you know you look at here daddy to guide him because all he got he ain't got no daddy got his fake Hitler yes doesn't maybe I don't have enough I haven't watched enough Scarlett Johansson movies outside of the venture into no but I I will say that the handsome man Scarlett Johansson is I've never seen her in a performance like this before mainly because I probably never seen his mom his mom rosie played by scholar Johannes those those some some really precious moments that was yeah I was just like man my my heart is man he's so influenced by all these other kids who WanNa follow Hitler I cannot let him know that I have a Jewish girl at it yeah he's GonNa flip out yeah he's he's and and and and not so much hey look at me no is actually it's not it's still story over style Gioja Kinda grows on you man 'cause 'cause Joe when you see how much Joe Joe Desario at everything yeah because yeah really loved those scenes me and my other favorite character was was Sam Rockwell okay because I never know how you're going to feel about him but he man this guy he really did he knows he does not look like it like I see really hates his he's always getting demoted and I just I just love the character man because he I mean this is the sound crazy but some people need to know this that's not the real Hitler these again he's Hitler as a little boy imaginary friend yes in a position as a mother either are you know a role as a mother before but she is amazing and this is yeah after so many years of black widow you I don't want to go to waste that playful tone that we see where it's considered a comedy is a lot of her tried to just try try to keep balance with her son Yeah ad in this movie yeah he because the reason why I love Sam Rockwell and his movie is because he's just tired of this shit ain't real real go joe and Joe go make it to joe he was going to make it a twelve even the world wasn't going on Joe Joe's get hit by a bus or something well it's just that you you you a snitch bitch as a little fanatic he's crazy she's even kind of scared of them in a way which just scared of what he becomes later on life a very funny it's a very funny role without him having to actually play it up yeah he doesn't he doesn't play it up and it's so much like you find it so much more the biggest labs in the movie that's it was funny I liked the weather is not as don't don't do this phase and it's these kids probably blow themselves up and die we will your enemies into dust and when they are destroyed we should use in grave with twitter okay no more politics is neutral grounds table is you on teaching now I am not that talk I might eat later for now I'm just going to these groups it's very funny yes asked him to ask him to just quietly react to every to all things around him that really gets the laughs Vesta the Nazi youth version the Hitler Youth version of moon rising yeah it feels just like moon rise kingdom except with the Jewish Nazi slant to it this is this is a different scholar Johann that you've seen in is really amazing especially considering that you know this is all you realize that a lot of the movie doc okay rebel Wilson Yeah she don't they I love everybody in this except her what they put in he just because she looked big German chick what does that make you up you hate your country dash much I love my country it's a why he'd it's pointless and stupid and the sooner we have peace the better the war will end did we got all day propaganda and delivers his conscriptions come on refreshing it's because of you my son can walk properly and his missed face stolen kind this is your kid who told you about remember he's stood remaining blew himself up and as a result I got demoted for negligence. She's kind of reprimanding him why so happy things are changing the and I said taken Italy France would be next in sooner will be it wasn't funny he just can't do the accent that's all as far as production here as far as looking like a World War Two movie cheap on the cheap side of things the him while I'm at work make sure he has a job infused included got it stops one of those ways like everybody brought their a game and maybe you don't have you just couldn't you couldn't do it rebel Wilson is good at being rebel Wilson. That's fine he she she I mean I can't believe they they kept it is probably all they had lucky just keep going Seem like every time throughout the movie when she popped up it was always for some kind of gag like that yeah yeah I mean I I'm not saying she's she doesn't just destroy the movie but the we need a rebel Wilson we'll be able to call you also liberal but when you get to those more intimate scenes the production is okay so you need somebody to walk the clones also I think maybe he could hand out to snoop propagate the office is wonderful kids so Joe Joe I'm sure we can figure something for you to do I guess guys what you could tell little is is on a cheaper side to believe a studio wouldn't want to invest in a comedy about Hitler I know you're talking about taking chances Yeah Shit but that's that's fine you know I mean it's cheaper movie and you could tell that they have takes place around one location and it's it's really at the end of the war like Germany's did his character and then you even know even by time you get to the end you're like wow that's a lot going on with it has a lot with him and a lot of it is just it's a great role with him just having to Ed on Salon it's asset this yeah yeah but it's very you could tell that they had just didn't have a whole lot of money to do a big epic war to movie not not that they're even trying the man he's just like this is where I was born yeah he's just wrong place wrong time you say about I would be doing anything but this bullshitted fund could and always in Goofy goofy as L. man don't get wrong fuck you got a brown imaginary Hitler here so you know it's yeah it's it's silly at points but when when people were talking about fits it's a it's it's it's overall mandal let the the the comedic tone at this is be pitch fully just popped in a really awesome moments in here where those colors they do pop man is it's mostly when they're on the countryside and they're wearing their casual NBA Bro yeah and I'll she has one see what she's GonNa do

Show Me the Meaning!

Sonic the Hedgehog (Directed by Jeff Fowler) Sonic Boom or Sonic Bust?

"What's up everybody? Welcome to show me the meaning. Wisecracks movie podcast. My name is jared. I am back back in the fold and I'm very excited to be back with me. As always is the wisecracked crew. We got Michael Michael Welcome. Hey did he hear good to be here today? Talking about the twenty twenty movies. Sonic the HEDGEHOG directed by Jeff. Fowler starring James Marsden Ben Schwartz and Jim Carey. And now you might be saying to yourself. How are they going to talk about this movie? Will God dammit. We are going to do it. Why would they say that? Well I don't know but up top I want to hear not only. What did you think of this movie? But what Sonic Games if you played. Oh such so. This is a confession right off the top. I'm not an active Gamer. I fell off pretty young. I would say any. Sonic game made up until about ninety nine. I've played. Oh it's still quite a few. Yes now if if I if I could remember the names I would but that was twenty one years ago so in the time that I have not played sonic What does that twenty one years ago? God I'm old. A child could have grown up and taking a drink so I don't really know that one. It's horrible I know the last game I liked a lot. It was a Sega Genesis. One where I put the cartridge in top of the machine this embarrassed. Oh you're talking about sonic and knuckles. Oh Yeah Downgrade. Sonic and tails and one of the ones. I have them in it. Sonic and knuckles had a weird thing. Really put the second cartridge of yeah or something like that. Yeah I mean I will say this as much as I'm not an active. Sonic ahead now as a kid. I was way more team. Sonic than team. Mario Also more of a Pepsi than a Coke Person. I don't know what that says about me. Maybe I'll like off brand things a little more So that's what I think. The games the movie. I'll start with this. The children in the theater with me loved it and I love nothing more than four. The youth of this nation to feel happy So I'm listening to say that right off the top. I did not enjoy it as much as the children in the room. Okay that's you're an adult. Yes I'm an adult and this is a movie that I understand that it got made. I don't quite understand why it got made and quite well. It's doing well and I would love. I maybe think a little bit about why it did. Well I I'll say this. Its origin talk about it. The first hour of the movie. I was thinking to myself like what is happening. Why did this get made the third act? I enjoyed I. Truly found some enjoyment in the end of the film wants wants. Everyone gets to San Francisco. I liked it more. Maybe that means I'm a coastal elite and everything that happened in small town Montana I couldn't relate to and then once we hit the big city I liked it more but there. There are some moments in the film. Okay Yeah what did what did you think I also know you have to say this to do. You have a favorite sonic game. I mean I probably would say sonic and knuckles the same one that you said. I mean look. I am an active Gamer. But if you're an active Gamer. I think you would agree that it hasn't been a great last ten to fifteen years to be a sonic. Is it been that big of a drop off? It's been Kinda bad I mean. I played both Sonic Adventures for dreamcast on adventure. One and two. I remember enjoying both them. Although I remember Sonic Adventure. Twos for dreamcast. Some bad technical issues It seems like there's another. Sonic the hedgehog every once in a while. Of course I have not played but I'm very aware of the infamous. Sonic two thousand six where sonic falls in love with a human woman and it's really awkward and everyone has it But no I have not played a sonic game in quite some time and ask you. This is well before you tell me about the movie. Did you watch any of these? Sonic television shows from the early nineties. Yeah matter of fact I did. And there's a shoutout or I guess an allusion you know. I'm sure there by the way to go back to Michael said about not being the biggest sonic fan like. I'm sure there are ton of references to the Games that I did not pick up on because again I haven't played since the old school ones. Yeah I think I might have gotten. There was a sonic game. The gameboy advance that I might have played. There are so many of them. I mean if there are over one hundred Mario Games. There's at least thirty to forty. Maybe Fifty Sonic Games. I quite a bit. I looked it up earlier today and I was shocked by how deep the Wikipedia page goes for. Okay so I liked the movie more than I thought it would when the first trailer came out and they had the quote unquote bad. Sonic design. I was like in back in thinking to myself. Man I wish they would. Just keep the bad design because the movie is going to be so bad. I would rather it be tragically bad rather than just bad bad but it actually was better than I thought it was going to be and when you go into a with rock bottom expectations and you ended up being surprisingly stimulated for solid ninety. And that's another thing. Yeah it's a cool ninety minutes. And that's means something in my book after having to watch the Irishman for three and a half hours but I liked it more than I than I thought. It would the scenes with robotic dancing. That scene with robotic was awesome. Jim Carey I just. It was so nice to see him doing like dumb and dumber facial impressions and seeing that kind of return to comedic form And then the movie itself is like some bizarre mix of Superman Frankenstein. E. T. and road trip movies like peons big adventure and I kind of got a kick out of it. Well and I'm glad you right up to the carry seven. That's something that I think I was saving. Because it's maybe the one big talking point I have for later but I myself on a journey with Jim Carey's Dr Robot because it I I was pretty not put off. It was a lot and it was a sort of tonal shift for the film Because up until that point everything kind of has the sweet tone except for sonic. But we're fine to have our one fish out of water character when we meet Doctor Robot. Nick a just really full on it was like Ventura. Time's eleven with like some we're tech fascist tendencies mixed in but rather film. I found I character in that performance. Very interesting I think and I'm going to save this to later in the show. I think that the core of what could have made the film a lot better was contained in the kind of statics around that character And I think for me personally. The dance sequence gets at another direction. I think the film could have gone. And maybe we'll go because it looks like and we'll get to this. This will not be the last sonic movie based on equal some hints. And the fact that it's making money well that's the real hint. Yeah all the artistic stuff is out the window. Made like seventy million. Its first weekend I think it. Yeah that must be the highest grossing Video Game Movie Weekend. It is it is and then to you know. We are in the month that the film industry calls dumped Sherry where all the shitty films are dumped in February award. Season's over No one really cares right now so to do that. Well in February a time where a lot of crap movies are being shoved down our throat or attempted to be shoved down. Her throat is is a good sign. I'll go one step farther and I say even though you and I are probably not ecstatic about this movie. I hope it does really really well because I want this to be the game movie. That makes it so that everyone starts making video game. Yes like the uncharted movie. Has Been in development. Hell for so long. There's been talk of a mass effect movie. They've been talking about making a metal gear movie for. I don't know how long if someone is willing to do it. Right like people have been doing comic book movies right for so long. Then I think we're maybe cinemas in another kind of renaissance a commercial renaissance. At least well then. I'll even say if someone didn't love this movie I I think they can do something. I don't think I think all hope is not lost. I think there was enough. Good and one thing. We talked about this a little bit more later where. I could see a sequel. That was fun now and took some of the best parts of this maybe worked around with the audience responded to and we know this is a film that responds to audience reactions because it got delayed and remade because of those reactions. Yeah but I think there could be something there see. I hate this. You're already talking to me in a lake and more than just got started before all right. Let's before we get into the nitty gritty. Let's dive into a recap so after a tragic separation from his winged mother figure a young. Sonic the hedgehog transported to Earth with special rings that enable him to escape Earth. Should anyone try to take powers in his new community of greenhills? Sonic lives vicariously through officer. Tom Hausky and his wife. Mattie when Sonics loneliness drives him to reach a speed that kills the whole town's power the military sends in the eccentric Dr Robotic to investigate in a failed effort to escape earth. Sonic loses his rings through a portal to San Francisco and teams up with Tom to evade Dr Robotic. And get the rings. Back after some unpleasant run-ins with robot. Nick Thoman sonic join up with Mattie while robot. Nick uses a strand of sonics hair to fuel his most powerful machine yet. Sonic retrieves the rings right. Before he's about to leave earth robotic attacks and chases sonic through San Francisco Perez the Great Wall et Cetera until the final showdown in Green Hills. Where inspired to protect his friends. Sonic turns into supersonic. I think although I've always known a supersonic to be yellow and banishes robot nick from Earth Tom Decides to stay in Green Hills and creates a home for sonic in the attic while robotic plans his escape from mushroom land and of movie. Wow Yeah I will say as well before we keep going. Check the chat a little bit. A lot of people are very excited. That you're hearing just know that thanks. Thanks everybody I really appreciate that. Yeah and there's one. One person that has been about male pattern baldness that I don't know if it was aimed at me or not but if so it might be shit. Look at that right. He'll I would say I would take one lakh of that hair. I would do a dance in my mobile laboratory and I would use that gorgeous. Ginger lock to change my life. Oh well you are my sonic well. Next time I get a haircut. I'll let you and I'll be less fascist robotic. Oh great that was such a good summary. I'm very excited to get into this because I think you're going to be like more than I did before. I wanted to shout out to the sponsor that's helped me make this all possible. Which is skill share now? I don't know how you're feeling US far. And you're twenty twenty jerry but something. I'm trying to do more is working on developing good habits getting better routines. I kind of someone that works. And really crazy and inconsistent ways so skill shares. Great because it gives you a lot of options to learn new stuff. Get Your Life Together Especially if you're a creative person or someone that sort of injured I interested in graphic designer photography's shares of courses for you so you can learn things. From Graphic Design Photography web development even crafts. If you're into the crafting Now of course that I checked out that I think is really cool. It's called real productivity. How To build habits that last with Thomas Frank Yeah As a youtube guy. Yeah now have you read any? Aristotle David Hume in your life you know that habit is really important. Avid SHAPES WHO? We are in our sort of moral ethical fabric. So they'd have a course that teaches you how to build the sort of habits that will make you work. More efficiently and productively is awesome. And I think something about Learning good habits rather than just beating yourself up for now working right which is what I do. All the time sounds great So that's of course it. I'm checking out. It might work for some of you but if not there's definitely other stuff on skill share that you might love one of the best parts about this is that it's really affordable especially compared to taking a class at a college or community centers something an annual subscription. Take you back less than ten dollars a month and depending on what town you live and you can get a coffee for ten dollars so necessarily and it's one fancy coffee for a lot of learning. Yeah now you can get two months. Free of premium membership right now by going to skill share dot com slash wise crack skill share dot com slash wise crack. So why not learn something new? Whether it's making your work. Life better teaching new creative skill whatever it might be. It makes way more sense than I don't know like taking a vacation or going to the gym. Yeah these things are fleeting one of the things I like about skill shares. Not only do they have classes taught by real login professionals. Like I've plugged a class before by The woman the woman who wrote the orchid thief remember Oh yeah yet creative nonfiction creative nonfiction class but also people on Youtube. I know that Thomas Frank who I can vouch for is a great guy and a really smart guy has a great class on there. And I'm pretty sure that Philip from in a nutshell so how's it going on animation so I mean skill shares got the goods from people who know what they're talking about and I once again? Two months free membership right now. If you are laying someone's GonNa go to scale share dot com slash wise crack to day. Start Your free two month premium membership. Okay now that that's said now I get to try to. I guess we have these All right the first thing I wanNA talk about. I think this is probably the cleverest thing about the movie is the character foils So we have three main characters that all their emotional arcs. Always Kinda work in puzzle pieces together and I think this is actually quite clever Screenwriting especially for and we'll talk about this later as well when you're adapting something that doesn't really have a plot early much of a plot So we have sonic sonic yearns for connections specifically human connection and It's clever I really like how they tie his emotional arc to his penchant for speed because everybody knows that sonic is fast So at the beginning of the movie he says to be honest. It feels like I've been running my whole life. He's never been able to slow down and establish intimacy with anyone. I really liked the scene where sonic is playing baseball with himself. Because it's both a joke on speed. Which is obvious motif through the film but also further further establishing his loneliness. And that's kind of what he struggles with throughout the film And then his foil is robotic whereas robotic thinks of humanity as an inadequate inefficient blip in the evolutionary progress and. He's got so many great lines that are so well delivered throughout the movie so Jim Carey says I love about machines. That do what they're told. They follow their programming. They don't need time off to get drunk and put the boat in the water and later he says yeah. Human beings are stupid and unreliable and care little about them but my machines are diligent relentless. They're everything to me and then later he's referencing. Sonic when he says. Why would you sacrifice your life for this thing? That's why I don't have friends next thing you know you're somebody's best man. They want you to have the wedding out of town like nobody has anything better to do. and then so hit me really hard because I had to see this movie after coming back from an out of town wedding. Oh realize that you're weddings and fucking Honolulu or no. No no no. I was coming back from a desert like this movie gets me Yeah And so I think this is really interesting. Contrast is like robotic being the smartest man alive. He's other humans as annoying inferiors whereas sonic the fastest thing alive doesn't really claim superiority and appreciates humans for their good qualities And then there's one other quality about robot. Nick that makes a foil for Tom. And that's robotics obsession with achievement. So he's always talking about how superior he is whether he superior to the military commandos or he says things like I was spitting out formulas while you were sipping formula hours. Something he says to the COP That this idea that achievement usurps connection and we have the Tom Character Tom Wakowski played by. What's his name? James Mars James Marston. Ferry his is love is or just haunting me for dinner and he is stuck somewhere in the middle of the two of them because he wants to leave his small town behind to deal with quote real city problems. He says he's always felt more like a babysitter than a real cop. Because in Green Hills I suppose the most he ever does is give out speeding tickets again. Speed Motif I think is pretty clever. sonic tells him. Nothing is more important than protecting the ones you care about. And at the end he decides to affirm human value over achievement being a hotshot big city cop thereby rejecting robotics philosophy so they this interesting triangle of main characters. That all kind of feed into each other's emotional arcs not that robot. Nick really has an arc necessarily but at least what he represents runs counter to our two protagonists and a pretty what I would say pretty clever way. Yeah I think to get back to the fact that I don't like going out of town for weddings. I was having a conversation with a guy that worked in technology and Silicon Valley at this wedding over a couple of overpriced bud lights and we were talking about the relationship between technology and the humanities and this idea that what he sees in the tech industry is people that are so obsessed with efficiency and automation and technology that there's a lack of appreciation for the humanities. Broadly construed in this world in which okay we can get algorithms robots to do all of these things but they write a poem or come up with a song or make a painting all these sort of things that make our core human and hearing you say that. God you're making me wish that robot nick was a Silicon Valley. He'd rather than a government too. I know well there's there's some overlap there because he's kind of like a road contractor or something like that like a black ops type person that they like fly in after. The war's over one of those I forget the name water companies. They came to Iraq and stuff afterwards and made some money and did a great job. But I used to room rate with Blackwater Dude really and he was hard core ones. Were averaged about this because I think he. There's probably some system but no hearing you say that. I think it gets US something interesting. Because like what does and just to reiterate you said what is robot naturally want at the end the power of the quilt from Sonic. What is sonic want and not to spoil the film for anyone but he wants a high five yeah the pivotal moment and of the film is him getting a high five from his buddy. He wants a moment of human connection. He wants a a night on the town. He wants a Juvie road trip. He wants these things that are fundamentally human And I do think the contrast you said it was good and I'm getting mad right now. I'm talking myself into liking this film even more And then I think the triad you set up with with Tom. Wright is the name of it. Yeah Yeah The Tom Character. Who thinks he wants to go live in the Sort of a technological utopia of Rio. They did bring it in. Yeah I don't even think about that. Yeah so he wants to run to Silicon Valley but knows that he's more of a was. It called Green Valley. Greenhill greenhills Dang. It was Green Valley. That would work much better with the Silicon Valley in Green Hills. I believe it is some. Don't kill me if I get this wrong but I think it's the name of the first level in one of the first Sonic Games. It is. Okay I really think this is true. Okay don't be manager. It'd be mad at me if this is wrong. I'm GonNa say who someone else in. This room is nodding their head. And it's one of the smartest people I know. Okay so we should be good Yes I think there was some goods good emotional stakes there in terms of those ideas. I did think though that the the emotional journey at times felt a little bit. Shallow or underdeveloped. Now I say this against the backdrop of the fact that I think small children in theaters were loving. It are probably the primary audience The film And Not us but I duNno I in so much as a high five at the end of the film is kind of cute and simply symbolic. It's also like friendship saves the day. Yeah I agree with that but I would also say that. I don't think that this movie needs to be ninety minutes long. And not a minute longer and and maybe there could have been. Some scenes added that added to that emotional weight but I kind of going back to my initial cynical view of the movie. I never really thought it was going to be great. And so I think the fact that they got something that was entertaining for all ninety minutes and was able to emotionally connect on somewhat of an intellectual level as well as with kids. I think that's kind of best-case case scenario it is and this is. I'm GonNa make an unfair comparison here but I think one of the great things about like Pixar movie often. They're they subtly sneak in emotional depth that on the surface level will speak to a curious eleven year old then. We'll tug at the heartstrings of the thirty nine year old parent yeah it was. Who's in the audience as well and I think there is something. I just think there was a little more meat on the bone of this theme of kind of the Alien Nation of the sonnet character. The desire for friendship and community I saw one review and I forget who it was. Whatever I'm not stealing your idea I'm just saying what it is but who talked about like you know you could read this as a critique of what technology is doing all of us are we all just in our own little holes all of our stuff on our own all day and not really connecting with humans anymore. But I think there's been more meat on the bone there. Yeah I mean I would agree with that but maybe I'm asking too much. I don't know I didn't see detective. Fica Chew but I remember Alex saw it and he was telling me the same thing about it was like almost so smart. Did you see it. No yeah you said it was almost so smart night I mean. I haven't seen the movie so I can't really get into the Specifics but Yeah I agree with you. I think that The way that the robot character interface with technology really could have given us a little bit more to work with especially considering we have such a contrast between robotics orientation towards other human beings versus Tom Who believes that? There's nothing or who tom who eventually gets convinced by sonic that. There's nothing more important in life that protecting the ones you love And Yeah no but I I agree with you. I agree with you there. Do you think there was enough done in terms of origin. Because I'm a sucker for a good origin story. Okay and I did feel with both sonic and robotic sonic especially so like. That was like Whoa. There's a lot where's the Br- okay bird person. So far as I know this long clawed character is not a part of the video not that I know of okay so so we start and sonics running fast. There's a magical owl that he calls his Obi Wan Kanobi. Yes so when they say that right I was going to die soon and then is chased by a bunch of like Ninja squirrels and then they kill long claw. We don't know what long claw is what she does with the purposes. We don't know what Sonics training is. We don't know why speed would leave this group to get him and then the way the rings came in were interesting as well. I dislike that all didn't do enough and I think if anything the deeper the origin story sometimes more we can. We can show the fruit of that name with robotic. He mentioned you know that he was an orphan. And he got punched by a bully. Wants Yeah I'm of a split mind about this Oregon thing on the one hand it really just seemed like a shoo-in actually you know. What can I use this question to transition into our next segment? I guess you can. Yes unless you had more talk about. I mean it just in general that the movie we'll because this is I wanted to a little segment about adaptation. And I think that what you're speaking to kind of overlaps with one of the things I was going to say let's get into it okay so guys. I'm introducing a new segment about adaptations clever or not so clever. So I'm GonNa be Interviewing Michael here and I'm going to give him what I think is likely perhaps a thought process that goes into making some of the decisions that they make especially since I mean Michael mentioned earlier that it's an unfair comparison to compare it to Pixar and it's not only because Pixar some of the greatest storytellers of our time but also because Pixar functions on a level where they're not really beholden to Ip that is in a completely different medium so before we get into it. Can I say one thing? Yeah I guess I mean everyone mad 'cause I called the thing squirrelled but they're in on. I'm accuracy right there at. Cadenas kidneys a kidney. So it's no because they look like knuckles. Who's in a kid? No okay so once again genuine holidays but I did say at the top. I don't have anyone tuned in late. I don't have a big background here. So apologies during a kidney tribe you don't WanNA kidneys. I know I the only one kid I've ever seen in my life and it's knuckles I don't I don't know what one relocate genuine apologies. Thanks for the correction. But I'm excited to get into this new segment. Okay all right so at adapting. Sonic the Hedgehog your screenwriter. You get hired to adapt something that doesn't really have a story. It's more of an iconic piece of culture that has images that resonate among people for generations. So I challenge. You've got a non human character that has to dialogue with celebrities so they go the Superman route. A space creature with special powers sent to Earth by his dying parental figure. Clever or not so clever. See because I thought like that whole first minute and a half origin was just an excuse to contextualized some of the visuals. You see in the original video games. That's what that means. It's not worth. It's a different planet but I've visually loved the opening so much that I would have rather stayed in that world more stayed in that world for the first third of the film and then and then cut away But I think that would have been interesting and I would have loved to see sonic interact more with characters in his own world. I agree I actually really curious. About the kidneys. Yes June them was knuckles. Yes I as A. I don't WanNa say expert is an expert on the cats making fun of myself to be clear. Yeah I don't know I think I would have rather seen I mean party would rather she uses a fully animated film that takes place in that world. You know you might have sold me on that. Yeah and maybe maybe then you end the first film with what happens at the beginning where sonic gets dropped off on Earth. You end within the direction. Then the sequel we get to see like sonic coaster. Yeah Okay and then you might. You might have sold me on film. That would have been cool. But I think the elements that worked the best memory of the Tripura elements The and and or in the middle of the game right now Boca but some of the. Yeah you know what gets into the surface no no. It's okay second thing said character that you have to adapt is a talking hedgehog. How does one incorporate said Hedgehog onto earth? They make his arc. How his uniqueness alienates him from having friends and making him lonely clever or not so clever clever what? He's unique because he runs fast. I mean he's unique because he's an as an alien creature. There's that's always going to be an awkward hanging. I but the thing about sonic the character of sonic is always really snide and always really confident. Yeah so how do you not betray that but still give him an inner conflict and I think that loneliness especially once again since it's not a fully animated film with Sonic talking to tails and knuckles and yeah all the other weird characters that they've added since then there's one of the fishing pole? Big One someone in the comments probably remembers But because it's him talking with real humans. I think it actually is pretty clever to make it about loneliness because he the movie demand that we have one hedgehog and a of humans and so it would only make sense that he's lonely now. I am going to make a huge stretch here and I highly doubt that this was intentional. But I got Frankenstein vibes from the way that sonic at the beginning wants to be part of the Hausky family. Yeah and Kinda live vicariously through their relationship So at the beginning he watches their relationship through window and watch the movie the movies that they watch even a shadow that Keanu reeves which I appreciate it very much in Frankenstein. The extremely lonely monster finds a hovel next to a cottage and looks in at the families going onto a crack in the wall and eventually plead the family to be his friends but they shoo him out. I was kind of thinking that there would be like a scene where sonic looks in to the water to see his reflection and like he's like feels like an abomination but that never happened But Yeah I was. I don't know I just. I love that book and after hearing your explanation there I'm gonNA revisionist history. That was better than I get credit for. Sure okay all right. These next two are a little bit more. Like they're they're many adaptations. Prices are all right. So you got Jim Carey to be in your movie to play egg man who has called egg man because he's rotund. Jim Carey is not not and so instead of being round. He has drones that are shaped like eggs making him an egg man. Clever or not so clever. I think so I think so. Why not it was fun you you needed him to be that character. They drew the aesthetics out. Pretty well But by being more. About Nick Than Egg Man. In that sense is flying eggs were perfect. It was a fun. I think that the fact that he physically looks nothing like robot. Nick I mean even though about cartoon character with basically legs that are stick thin and a body that is gigantic yeah You would still expect him to be fatter actor but the fact that they would Jim Carey. I don't know it works is great all right. Here's one you can even call bullshit on this one alright visual Motif to draw sonic to Tom. Sonic is associated with rings. Tom Is associated with ring shaped donuts. Clever or not so clever or say bullshit or deliberate. What do you think I'M GONNA say? Bullshit Bullshit Okay. Yeah. I don't know if the donut Lord thing was meant to be that much was just a funny riffing cops visual Motif. I don't think but I think you don't think like they could have been I mean. Yeah you're right it's a it's a cop thing probably more than it is a circular object. Found it funny that right off the Bat. And a well natured. Way that James Marsden and then it's easy because he's not sh- lobby. He's extremely handsome so to have this. Kansas small town cop who also loved doughnuts was kind of fun. Yeah but on the other hand I feel like I think there are some things that the screenplay does that are not the most trite common things choices to make and I feel like cops who love doughnuts are a little bit too trite so I I want to believe that there was that extra sonic element that made them choose some other fixation like on coffee or something. No I think you're you're probably right. Probably right and also too I wanNA say shoutouts to Adam pally for playing the other Capos. Pretty funny okay. I enjoyed that. Yeah the Dan. Sex machen AQAP right because he comes in at that last minute and saves the day. No no no. He's at the beginning. He's on the walkie talkie with him but at the end row. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Oh because he shoots. One bullet shoots one. Bullet stops something somehow and yeah all right last one this is also one bullshit on sonic uses his speed to run away from connection in life. Tom Is stuck in a dead end job as a speed trap. Cop Clever or not so clever. Okay Yeah it's it's fun enough now. The this yeah. It was made for those kids screaming in your theater man. I'm telling you they were so happy. There was things one of the biggest laughs in the room. I was in was the scene where Tom will give him a ride to San Francisco and he says you know run that way and you'll you'll hit it and immediately comes back with help a fish on his hair because he's ran into the Pacific Ocean. Yeah and then. He dries himself off with his speed shake and his hair goes puffy. These children were laughing so hard and they were laughing. I laughed when I was like sixteen and saw my first episode of Jackass and couldn't believe that existed. Yeah and it made it enjoyable. I mean they threw in some some fun jokes for mom and dad thought the Natasha Rothwell character who played on Mrs Wakowski sister sister-in-law very funny. I mean you just wonderful comedic actor in general. Yeah it was a little felt totally a little bit weird but she was funny Knowledged at one point. She was tied up and mocked by her own child. She needed to go to the bathroom or pants. Oh yeah I also like the Fitbit joke all you gotTA run around? Might as well put on my fitbit so I can get my steps more about your technology thing. Yeah dairy cow. But that was what I think. That's also why I enjoy these San Francisco part of the movie Oh Yeah Oh what did you think about where they're more questions in this game? No that was it. Okay well then. Just here's how I feel about the game in general. Oh Okay Great was fun. I enjoyed it. What did you think about the Roadhouse fight scene. I I was actually going to ask you if you think it was actually a direct deliberate allusion to pee. Wee's big adventure because it's it's a road a road movie. This is a road movie and instead of instead of sonic the outsider. Partying it up with some roadsters who then kick him out. It's Peewee Herman who parties up with some bikers. Who then kick him out. There might have been although I think that's a well there's another I mean. Do you think that the sorry to interrupt but like so when sonic hides among the balls in the addict not be seen? It's definitely a an allusion to E. T. Hayek's animals. So I do think that there are some deliberate nods to these allusions for sure I think. Ut thing was was very clear like the the alien hiding among stuffed animals and needing to like well wanting to leave and go home and struggling to find out whereas really was for sure and the government being after them for testing. Yes of course I mean one thing I kept thinking about during the I guess. Like fight scene. In the roadhouse was the difference between and I'm GONNA sound like I'm stone here but I'm not although I did see a lot of people make comments we're talking about four twenty so sh- sheltered y'all maybe this will make sense to you. Is this line between incredible? Speed and slowing time down in the question of temporarily. I actually saw this movie with a friend was a physics major and who I I wasn't but he was a physics major. Who was who had taken an edible before. He saw sonic and what he wanted to talk about. After you must've loved it. He he enjoyed parts of it and was very concerned about others but it was interesting because it you know earlier in the film when Sonic I run by. Tom's cop car doesn't need to ninety seven it I Yeah I remember the number. Yeah I don't I was there was something on the lower end but then the speed at which you would have to travel to do everything he did. Would I think be like the speed of light especially the time where he's like go west and he's like yeah later he has all this kelp all over him because he went to the Ocean? He instantly went from Montana to the ocean. But if one and someone who knows science better will correct me on this but if you're going at the speed of light you're moving concurrently with light so you're almost like moving at such a rate where you're you're you're parallel with time as we experience it. So he's he was able to basically freeze things. Like Zack Morris and saved by the Bell So there is this interesting question of the the limits of this power. How it works. And what is the difference between going fast and going so fast? You literally are slowing down. I hope that your friend after all after after all those kids had a great time at the movie I hope he just said are nobody move and I want to explain why this isn't funny. Guys it was the person at the arclight was very upset and Eric. Not Today I need to give a lecture. Pull out his his pen thing but I think that was yeah. No that's interesting. I will say one thing about those. You're talking about. Sonic he speeds through the Bar Fight. And everything is in slow mo around him and then the same thing when docked robotic is shooting those missiles and bullets at him right. Yeah it's it's not even that he's he's moving so fast that to him. The the experience of time is that much slower. Yeah so so his use of so. His experience of temporalscanner differs from ours. I'll stop at this. I know this sounds like it's too much. But he because of the speed it means he's able to exist in the same type of linear temporarily to you and I are able to experience where you know second-by-second minutes by minutes but he could also and one second of our time completely reorganized. Our studio put us in outfits puts them peanut butter on our fingers or whatever and to him. That single second for US would be minutes to do things. Have you seen x? Men Days of future past or x men apocalypse didn't see apocalypse. Okay we'll both of them have seen with quicksilver the same thing and I remember. That was the best seen in days of future past and then. I felt like it was a little bit too much fan service when they did it again in apocalypse which is just not a good movie. That's why I did. Yeah so I kind of felt like man not only was this already done but it was already done and it was the most memorable part of that movie and so that kind of bum me out a little thought appropriate for sonic so once again it sonic and I do think and this is my fault about to say is I just whenever I want to understand the powers any character. A Superhero Alien video game character turned into a film character. I just want to have some understanding of of how it works. And this sometimes makes me a bad person with I definitely think one of my biggest problems with the the recent star wars trilogy is. There's so much stuff it's just like not explained how it works. Yeah and it really bothers me. I just wanted to know a little bit more about that. And then were we meant to believe in the final chasing that the power from the single quill then allowed robotic that same same speed and power because when they're doing the ring chase on the wall of China and the Pyramids at one point. I did think they were going to blow up to seven wonders of the world and I started to get very upset Yeah it's hard to say because like at what I guess. The real question is. What speed is the camera going? Sorry I'm bringing up dumps donors from our Neil degrasse Tyson over here like actually I have one last question I think maybe then we should go into the mail All right so I'm sure I'm not the first person to bring this up. But so he. He'll use the rings to escape to a gross smelly world filled with mushrooms. Like how could you not? At least I thought like Oh is this like a Mario thing like are they jabbing at Mario. But it's not the mushroom kingdom because at the end robot. Nick is there and it doesn't look anything like Mario Related. But when I first heard that I was like. Oh Ha ha. They're kind of you know. I know that sonic has appeared in a lot of Nintendo game. So I thought there might have been something copacetic working relationship between the two of them and that we might actually see sonic some sort of like Mario. Sonic extended universe or something like. But I think it's a coincidence or do you think that that's a thing now that you've said it. It's hard to believe. That would be a coincidence. Yeah because why mushrooms yeah. I'll tell you why I hope mushrooms because I want a sequel in which we start with robotic on the mushroom planet discovering the Ho- The hallucinogenic mushrooms. And we have like a half hour trip sequence where he figures out a bunch of science stuff while having a hallucinatory experience with a crazy psychedelic background. Yeah I'm sure the seven year old would love that you know they they would give you a quick anecdote to prove this I went to the theater when these SpongeBob movie. I came out early two thousands And I think it was in my late teens at that point and there was two older gentlemen in front of me who were laughing and crying throughout the film And I didn't understand it and some later told me they. Those guys took acid and went to see the spongebob movie. The kids loved it. The adult man who suggests loved it the teen that was me on no substances popcorn. Loved it. Okay it's kind of a win win win win all around. But if I can't sage before you to the mailbag yeah. Do you want to say that I think the Kerry performances Dr Robotic to me at least kind of undermined the tone of the film because the tonal choices of his scenes. I thought were so good that it seemed like there's another film. That's more like an absurdist masterpiece to really leans into that character. And I kinda wanted to see that a little bit more on a movie. It's more oriented around that. And maybe a world that reflect him rather than robotic character who is so singular. Yeah I like the I think you can see robot. Nick existing in the first world the trippie looking world and exactly and if we had stayed there it might be the robotic tone throughout. And I think so. You know if anyone's listening who's making the second film pay money for all this but do maybe maybe start there or at least it would be great. Yeah any final thoughts on your end on this one. No I mean. We've talked for like forty something minutes about sonic the Hedgehog. Everyone should be impressed with us. I think we really pulled all the meat off the bone. It's like taking one chicken wing and having dinner out of it. Yeah On ninety minute chicken wing And also I think some people are helping us figure some things out in the comments and I can't wait to look at them later. Thank you so much. So let's start you want to start with a email. Yeah we got an email. Sorry I'm a little bit behind on all these emails. Getting back into the swing of things but we did get one from. Pabalan about parasite. So if you haven't seen parasites spoilers ahead avalon says. Hey why's Crock? I know this is About two months after your parasite podcast but I just give input on the whole rock thing. I'm saying you're wrong per se but someone from Asian descent. I personally think that the rock is supposed to represent hope and is a wealth. Good Luck charm. The stone is supposed to be compared to the plan. Speech that the DAD gives the rock works by giving the family. Hope especially Kevin that money or better days will come to them eventually in a sense. They're hoping for unearned wealth. The Rock keeps clinging Kevin because it gives him the false hope that he will get all that he deserves after he marries the wealthy man's daughter which is why at the party he asks fits in that setting he has no earn justification that he belongs in that society. Everything the Kevin is just one day. I will just like with diploma. So in the end of the movie when he discards the Rock it's supposed to symbolize him. Throwing away the dream to get unearned wealth to begin to plan for your future. He will wear. He will become wealthy. So yeah that's just my read on what the Rock was supposed to represent loved the podcast from Pabalan. So I had not gotten anyone really explain to me what it means when he puts it away but I liked the idea of it. Just being luck that he's clinging onto that things will come to me and then he puts the rockaway he realizes that I will have to pursue it being wealth. I like that a lot. Yeah there's something there and I think that rock kind of symbolized a type of hope that I think sadly parasite tells us might not exist. Yeah that that life is a life under capitalism is a nitty gritty series of machinations that we have to participate in Following the rules of the system and hoping for the best. And there's not like a magical way out Where's the logic of movies as often that there is always the magic the hope the friendship the high five at the end of the chase Yeah and I think that that's happens. He puts the rockaway and he puts puts the fantasy away. I like that all right. So if you guys want to send us an email you know talking about whether Sonics arms are in fact Blue Tan talking about other sonics things the illusions the references that we missed hit us up at movies at wisecracked dot. Co otherwise we've also got some voicemails. You can hit us up at two one three five three four eight zero seven. That's two one elf hut though seven I believe both of them are about Joe Joe Rabbit which. I haven't seen that correct. Yes but it just right now. You're in your head. Imagine exactly what you think it's about and confidently respond to anything that so So we have one. This is from Hannah on Joe. Joe Hi this is Hannah just finished listening to the Joe Joe. Rabbit podcast of show. Show me communing and I was really interesting. What you're saying about your for Connie concepts of the Cultural Super Ego And just was thinking that much The father or masculine figure Who's absent Just as father being absent is filled in by potentially three other masculine secures. We've got the Hitler imaginary friend. Fully embodies that obsessive Imagination filling in the gaps in his life But then potentially same. Rockwell's character has another father figure who I think. There might be an argument to nate. That he is a code of as Queer with Alfie Allen's character so I wondered what you needed that and also I think third potentially sort of masculine character that comes into is the moment when Scarlett Johansson Care Sneers for face with the search and takes on the role of those father and mother. That's a really good question. I thank you so much for that hand and that's a good observation so we kind of if I may just interject. I just want to say that. She used to buzzwords Lucon obsessive. And I know that she's reacting to something Austin said. I'm not gonNA say who said No. We're not here to SNITCH. Or here's Yeah but I think really point. We talked about in this movie about others. A young boy searching for father figures. And you know you've coated all these father allusions in a movie about World War Two in Germany the Fatherland of course And I have nothing else to say other than I think you are right. I agree with that reading of the film and I think a lot of ways the film get to this idea of if there isn't a father figure here meant in that Freudian Leconte and not always the literal father at some point of cultural orientation or logical orientation That's where bad stuff can slip in. I think one thing that the Joe Rabbits at is this young kid isn't sure what his father figure is. His actual father is gone. How that kind of leads into the stem tation of Nazism so good Also makes me WANNA move. Yeah or you could earmuffs and if you don't have anything spoilt no no no. It's fine. Okay. It's definitely worth seeing and also. I'll say that since we talked about in the last episode it one on best adapted screenplay the Oscars for titanium well. We didn't mention Paris. I do a straight cleanup. Oh yes we will say that as well parasite clean up. It was awesome. If you're watching the Oscars were freaking out. If you weren't freaking out you weren't paying attention. And so listen if we talk about a movie and break it down. It's GonNa Win Awards. What can I say? One more Voicemail for Gioja Rabbit and this is from Jacob I mean meanwhile is cracked crew. Jacobs again calling in regards to your Joe Joe Ratatouille contrast me and my friend. We saw this theater as like a theater showing it and we were very interested in it. And what my opinion of the movie is that? I thought it was a coming of age story of a of a child in Germany in a very dark time in Germany's history and he got me thinking about like nineteen seventeen. Did about what a war movie is and what it should be. Now we're done with the combat the Feis and we know what will work is. It was all about the fight us against an ideology. It's time for us to actually see how people were under that high all AJI I would like. We know what it was like over two movies. Under Soviet Russia we need more of living under Nazi Germany but wasn't likely in especially in America around that time. Okay so that's a good point so we've talked about to war movies. We did nineteen seventeen. Joe Joe Rabbit. Neither of US really get. What people's lives were like during the thick of it on? Joe Joe Rabbits have shows us A kind of calm scene towards the end of World War. Two things are going that well for the Germans but things on the grounds normal and of course in one thousand nine hundred seventy we know nineteen seventeen. We're really just seen the lives of these. Two young men So I think that's an interesting idea. Jacob that some of these films haven't gotten into like life on the ground and I think that idea to life in America during these times so it's a point I do have to say one thing Someone in the chat pointed out that we left out one of the most important things about sonic. Okay the Olive Garden. Oh Yeah I just had to at least bring that up so I don't know if this is actually establish somewhere. Maybe someone in the chat can tell us like is actually paid advertisement. It has to be it has to. I mean we've gone into situations where remember. Remember our Bo Burnham video where we were talking about talk you specifically wrote that and we were talking about Taco Bell and everyone thought sponsored by Taco Bell and we were like no we just think Taco Bell is funny so I mean it's possible it and an olive garden does have that kind of unique cultural thing where it's kind of ironic joke if you go to the olive garden because it's kind of an amazing deal and I just enjoy more than you want to admit. That's a joke though the joke of like Haha Low brow cultural food thing is funny when we do it in a Bo Burnham video wise crack that's gold. That's where you WanNa see that that we might have even already hit the peak of that and that that could be over. I just need a little bit better and a movie that has a budget like that For one of the pivotal pivotal joke on. And I don't know it'd be funny if Luli the Olive Garden paid for all of the CGI corrections to make. Sonic look more like the video game character but that was their deal they were like whoa correct all this but at a pivotal scene at the end of the movie a Olive Garden Gift Card for fifty dollars has to be symbolically important If they did that both of them got a good deal. Well final question of the day. When's the last time you've eaten at the Olive Garden? Two thousand eleven. Wow you knew exactly. That's great yeah. I'm probably two thousand eighty. Maybe and I enjoyed it. There's really no reason I haven't gone back okay. So unlimited breadsticks. It's just not safe man. It's not an I have a whole bread thing. I won't get into an hour restaurants as a scam fills up. She eat the good stuff. You should never eat the bread. They put out also. They use literally just bread and Pasta. Yeah the unlimited thing is a joke unless you're unless you're Matt Stony not into it so along with emailing and calling and sonic let's about any olive garden experiences you've had as well so I would love that. I think we did it all right. We did it. We talked about sonic the hedgehog for almost an hour. I WanNa thank Michael For joining me on this a lot of fun. I hope you enjoyed the movie a little bit more after this discussion. We're going to be back. I believe in two weeks yacht. Avia week I don't know weeks anyway guys Great to be back and great to be here with Michael and we'll see you next time I go by peace.

Full Episode: Friday, February 7, 2020

"From ABC News this is perspective a closer look at this week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed. I'm Michelle Franson coming up the Senate quits president trump ending just the third impeachment trial in American history. Now we have gorgeous word. I never thought a word would sound so good. And it's called total acquittal. Democratic presidential candidates moved to New Hampshire after a chaotic weaken Iowa. When I left Iowa I said it was too close to call all and it still is but I feel good? I didn't sleep on the plane. I am very excited about what we're going to see your in New Hampshire and we celebrate astronaut. Kristina Cook returned home after her historic trip to space walk into the actual reality of the space station like it was like walking into a movie reset all ahead on perspective during a time when every Newsweek seems monumental this one stood out there was is a lot going on. President trump was acquitted by the Senate during an impeachment trial of a sham investigation. A partisan basement. It's over America America. The Iowa caucuses were held and were a gigantic mess. That happened was president. Trump delivered his State of the Union. Address is to a very divided union. Let's start with a historic impeachment acquittal. And what's ahead for president trump and the country. ABC's Kiro Phillips leads us off Supreme Court chief Chief Justice John Roberts bringing to a close only the third presidential impeachment trial in American history. This is Jill Lebron guilty Mr Graham Mr Graham I am not guilty. The vote was historic for more than one reason. Republican Mitt Romney becomes the only senators ever to vote to convict a president of his own. Own Party I take an oath before God as enormously consequential I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the president the leader of my own party would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong. Romney voted guilty on one. Count Abuse of power. The president's attorney Jay Segula president one one. The office of the president won the constitution. One President trump declaring victory. We've been going through this now for over three years. It who is evil. It was corrupt it was dirty cups for more than an hour during a White House. Event President trump lashing out at opponents especially Democrats Adam. I'm sure is a vicious horrible person. Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person and she wanted to impeach a long time ago when she said I pray for the president. I pray for the pros. It doesn't she may prey but she prays for the opposite. Inner weekly briefing speaker. Pelosi fired back. They can say whatever he wants. Say what everyone's but I do pray for him and I do so. Oh sincerely impeachment is over so now what it's possible. The House could issue new subpoenas over the president's phone call with Ukraine and some Senate Republicans have called for board investigation into hunter. Biden's work there once the face of the Republican Party. Mitt Romney conceded. He'd face backlash after voting to convict. President trump on one of two counts. I'm sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters. Andy sure did say a Lotta the people of Utah and tell them. I'm sorry about Mitt Romney. I've saw okay. But what about Romney's constituents. What did they think? And how about the State of Utah which Karami serves to answer those questions. Let's bring in reporter Paul Nelson with our affiliate. KSL in Salt Lake City Hall. Thanks for joining us. How our citizens of Utah reacting to Senator Romney's impeachment vote? Well when we first heard that he was when he was making these comments the comments that were coming into KSL overwhelmingly negative and it seems like many. The people of his party just couldn't understand why he was making that decision. There's one lawmaker from southern Utah that is planning and drafting legislation to officially censure Mitt Romney now essentially i. It really doesn't have any teeth to it. You know. It's not recalling him or anything that it's more like an official finger-wagging shame on you kind of a thing. But he's drafting that and the reason why he's doing that is because he says he wants to send a clear message of support to president trump but on the other side of it. You have a lot of people that are now coming out saying. Oh my Gosh Mitt Romney. I fully support what you did. So it's extremely action on both sides and matter of fact it seems like the local reaction is getting Kinda muddled with the National People that are coming in. Apparently there's a Virginia group that starting a Hashtag campaign called recall Mitt Romney and and matter of fact there's also a group called Republicans for the rule of law they're going to put up a billboard honoring Mitt Romney but that group is part of a project from defending democracy together. Gather and that's Bill Kristol's group so it's not just Utah Reaction. Apparently all the national folks are coming into the state to react as well Senator Romney of course he was elected there Orrin Utah. Give me an idea of what his popularity was like in the state prior to this vote and how that might be changing long-term. Oh it's definitely changing. It is dropping one of the latest polls it came out was from Utah Policy Dot Com and they say his overall approval ratings dropped ten in points during the impeachment process and matter of fact this poll was taken before. He made a statement saying that he was going to convict on abuse of power his approval. Right now it's at thirty six percent approval. Forty nine percent disapprove in October of last year. Forty six percent of utahns approved how he was doing his job so his approval rating has taken a massive hit. So as we move forward were less than a month away from Super Tuesday could Senator Romney's decision caused some voters is there to rethink. How the cast ballots have most people sort of made their decision or are there still some undecideds there? There are a lot of unaffiliated but that doesn't mean that they're undecided from some of the reactions that I have seen one would immediately just jump to the conclusion that most people have made up their minds now when it comes to do Democrats in the Senate basically in Utah. Democrats don't win Senate Positions Republicans do that. It's been that way for a very long time. But when it comes comes to how they're going to vote in the Super Tuesday definitely. There's a lot of people that are coming out saying. Hey Look I. They thought the process against the president wasn't exactly fair air that it was partisan as well but Democrats are also bolstered with a little bit more renewed confidence about well. Maybe there's a little bit of hope maybe I can can if if Republicans are starting to break ranks. Maybe that's a good time for us to kind of come and now Mitt. Romney is not up for re election for four more years. He has four more years to kind of rehabilitators militated image among the Republican party but if sentiment stays the way it is now I would be stunned if he actually made out of the primary. We turn next next to the state of the Union Tuesday night. The final president trump's first term members of Congress. We must never forget that. The only victories that matter in Washington. Uh or victories that deliver for the American people the country's divisions on full display the president not shaking house speaker. Nancy Pelosi's hand before he delivered his message passage and Speaker Pelosi tearing her copy of the President's speech right after it ended it was a in my view manifesto of mistruths. ABC News White House correspondent Karen Travers tells are Sherry Preston. It may be a while before the nation's wounds begin to heal. You had some really great analysis Karen Travers on the the idea that a lot of this was was a show. President trump is a former TV producer. And you could certainly see it in his third state of the Union address. It certainly seemed like like he was producing the state of the Union. You know he keeps that hat very close by and likes to do those made for television moments and I think in many ways those moments largely overshadowed any bit of policy. He was talking about if you quiz people the day after. I don't think anybody would have any memorable agenda item that the president laid out. It was a very broad broad speech and and look Sherry. It's election year. There is very little chance of anything getting done in Washington no matter who is in charge in Congress and in the White House. That's just how things work here because everybody's focused on November but that speech on Tuesday was not a bipartisan outreach. That was red meat. For the president's supporters that was essentially a campaign campaign stump speech with a laundry list of some small ball policy items thrown in there for him the takeaway are those big surprises. The splashy moments ends where everybody stands up and cheers American moments. He'd rather have that be the takeaway than any agenda item that he can move forward on. Let's talk about some of those moments. One are the ones that both sides of the aisle stood up on was when that deployed servicemember kind of showed up by surprise those viral videos that we see from all over the country. The president began talking about this family saying that his two children had not seen his face in seven months. And honestly you know I I feel like the president well enough. That should have been my clue that something big was about about to happen because then they turned around and he was coming into the House Chamber really emotional moments very compelling moment that had a lot of people applauding wiping tears away because that soldier them was reunited with his wife and two kids and that was just one of the moments that some people on social media on Tuesday. Were comparing to oprah bre moments. You know what's under your seat. WHO's about to get a car? You had the president giving a scholarship to a little girl from Philadelphia. Who can't go to the school she wanted to go to present isn't using that to talk about school choice? And of course giving rush limbaugh the Presidential Medal of freedom which is the highest honor. You can give this country to a civilian. There have been a lot of talk about about that leading up to the speech there were reports. It was going to happen but rush limbaugh certainly did his best Taylor swift there and was very surprised by it and it was a moment where the first lady then presented him with that metal. Do you think that we will ever go back to those days of decorum at the State of the Union address the capital. I think it depends on the tone of the speaker one thing we have seen seen from the presidential primary campaign in two thousand sixteen to the three years that Donald Trump has been in. The White House is that nobody can out Donald Trump. Donald trump trump many have tried and people have tried to rise to his level or sink to his level. However you want to view it and they have not succeeded? He has a very unique ability to commander under stage to make these very viral moments and also with the insults that he lobs. Nobody else has been able to do that and actually have it Not Stick to them. The the Democratic presidential field doesn't seem like any of them could get in there and give that exact same speech and we haven't seen any politician be able to do that so perhaps when there's a different type type of president giving the speech from that podium things settled down in that Very hyper partisan audience in front of them coming up. We're going to tell you about everything that happened. Happened in Iowa and how a new APP failed many of the state's voters and sent a ripple effect throughout the campaign on perspective after this. Oh so you just woke up. Your phone is lighting up with headlines and push notifications and a text from your mom saying how do I click this okay. Maybe that's just I mean but if you want to get up to speed check out the new podcast from ABC News start here literally. The ground was shaking. I'm Brad Milkey and every morning we're going to take you into the stories that matter with fast. Fresh insight. Low Robert Muller Michael Cohen Calling All in twenty minutes start here. Listen for free on apple podcasts. Or your favorite podcast APP. This is perspective from ABC News. And coming up we'll preview the Oscars and tell you about a female astronauts record-setting trip to just space but first we turn to Iowa. The state's caucuses were shortly. Up ended due to the technical issues and confusion on the ground. Results of the race trickled out up throughout the week. Mostly coming in by Thursday afternoon when Democratic National Committee Chair. Tom Perez suddenly called for the votes to be re canvassed. It was wild week in the Hawkeye state state one that led to calls for the caucus process to be eliminated altogether. I think we have to have a conversation about being dead. I mean first of all the state does not reflect the diversity of our Party. We have to make sure it's not for a second. This caucus thing is really unwielding. ABC's Ryan Burrow was along for the ride caucus night. He tells us about all the chaos on the ground. It was a frantic race to caucus night the candidates crisscrossing Iowa trying to get as much facetime with caucus as possible. I'm here one more time to ask you to caucus for for me on Monday. February third three Senate candidates held in DC to the impeachment trial trying to make up for lost time off the campaign that is going to bring about the largest voter turn out in American history. Mother surrogate made headlines. I don't remember if you guys remember last week when when someone by the name of Hillary Clinton said that nobody. We're not GONNA BOO BOO. We're here we're loud Bo. Bo and supporters canvassed every block. Just trying to make sure we talked to as many people as we can and get make sure they come out to caucus what are the interactions like. I'm honestly for the most part. Very positive doesn't think a lot of people are just looking for people to talk to in person and get some information straight from another human being by caucus night. It was time to finish the job. Take Care Basement in Cedar rapids with four hundred. Thirty seven caucuses. The first alignment left mayor. Pete Senators Warren Club and Sanders and former vice president joe bided as viable candidates by just squeaking in with two votes above the fifteen percent percent. Cut off in the second wave supporters of Bloomberg Gang Gabbard. Terrace and uncommitted made their second alignment in the end. The large paper at the front of the room showed Buddha judge on top with one hundred and fifteen votes followed by Warren with eighty-six cloture and sanders with eighty each and Biden at seventy three. But behind the podium. There were issues the precinct secretary with supposed to enter in all of the results via in APP but it wasn't working the backup backup plan they needed to call in the results to the party headquarters in Des Moines. Linda Langston was the caucus chair and we are still sitting here waiting. What what exactly are you waiting? What does the frustration? And I I think the we we learned a couple of days ago that there were some challenges with using the APP that the party he had provided and so we were asked to call in our results on the first call that we made we were told to only call in once when our caucus was concluded. That was just a recorded message Now when we have called in we are on hold. And it's one of those lovely Muzak recordings that tells you that your call will be taken in the order in which it was received there are seventeen hundred precincts in an island. Some of them may have used the APP but I suspect that there are a fair number. That are trying to call in has got to be frustrating night when pretty much everything went smoothly smoother. I mean there are few spoiled ballots but I mean and now you're sitting here waiting waiting and I think the world is waiting by eleven PM. Two who hours. After the second alignment was counted in an empty venue. The secretary remained on. Hold thank you for calling the Iowa. Democratic Party's caucus hotline all all of our representatives are currently busy. Your call will be answered in the order in which it was received. We look forward to talking to you soon. Bye Eleven fifteen. The Custodian entered and told us we all had to. I believe one hundred percent of the precincts wouldn't be officially tabulated for days. The secretary telling me on her way out she would remain on hold as long as it took I. Democrats blamed the caucus turmoil on the APP designed to help party officials report their precincts results. The State's Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price said a coating issue with the APP caused the results to be delayed. But David Goldstein. The CEO of Progressive Digital Consulting firm Togo labs says says the Faulty Code underlines a big problem with how politics and the tech world intersect ABC's. Mike Dubovsky sat down with Goldstein. To find out more David to the best of your knowledge. What was this APP supposed to do? Short and then we can start talking about what actually happened is supposed to provide a very real time reporting mechanism For the various Cox in Pre saints happening around Iowa so they could report into a central repository where The votes the delegates could be counted up In a very quick efficient fashion And basically delivered out to the press as soon as possible So that is what we've seen in past years where there've been delays or there've been problems where they've been a last minute changes could basically be avoided so basically. This is an APP that was not intended to be used by the average caucus-goers cower. This was for the people exactly that back to the park officials with that in mind. What went down on Friday night from the the people with whom I've spoken And some of what's come out publicly. Our it's very clear is there was a extraordinarily short development time Some folks are saying about two months or less Doesn't seem to be have much resources. Invested in the actual build itself And the engineer is behind the project a lot of their experience. Syrian seems to have come directly from politics which can be tough because A lot of the more advances more fluid at builds a really coming from more of the corporate world these days. Would you say the short development time and the lack of perhaps more tech savvy engineers on this. This APP is unusual when it comes to technology I wish I could say that. It is But unfortunately I can't What we've been bedevilled by on on the left Particularly since Twenty sixteen is the fact that there's too many teams running around trying to do too many things with too little money in that is offset by what they claim they can actually do There is simply isn't a guided set strategy for technological innovation and Development that that accurately reflects the fact that all of this is trying to do can be extremely difficult considering you have to have apps that can be used by your grandmother And by twenty year old college student at the same time both out in rural Iowa and in downtown Des Moines. We're starting to see more of these types services play a role in our elections. I'm thinking one about the reporting APPs that we've seen in Iowa. We're actually going to see. It seems again in Nevada. Oughta what does the Iowa Caucus story tell us about our relationship with APPs going forward should would we be worried absolutely. We have a highly dysfunctional relationship with APPs We have a perception now our smartphones our phones and they're not their computers when you you take the complexity and you all of a sudden scale it out to needing to perform perfectly statewide on one night that should have struck fear into hearts of anybody anybody who'd been exposed to software builds at any point in the past and there's a reason why everyone who has deep experience within software with Intech even non on engineers like myself get terrified at the amount of technology that's been brought into our democracy because it opens up for not only you know the kind of basic screw ups ups but allow for actual malicious treason You know security that you know we can take that can take months to figure out Simply because there's not the time and resources just put in place to make sure they're secure. It's antiethical to how quickly people want things and the kind of scale. They wanted to play the Matt in such a short period of time.

Thirty first twenty twenty from from ABC News. This is perspective a closer look at the week's top stories and the stories. You may have missed. I'm Michelle Franzen. Coming up an Oscar preview and a conversation with a record setting astronaut but I as results from Iowa trickled in throughout the week twenty twenty democratic. The presidential candidates shifted their focus east openly and aggressively drawing contrast between each other in New Hampshire where the primary voting will be held February. Do you worry eleventh. ABC's Aaron Katersky as watched the back and forth on the campaign trail for much of the week. He joins me now Erin Michelle. The Iowa caucuses were supposed goes to clarify the race instead. They confuse things and a couple of candidates declared victory. You have shocked the nation. I come from when you get the most votes you know. Candidates dropped out. The National Front runner pulled himself out of this state on the eve of the debate ahead of the primary. So things are a little bit jumbled and now there are candidates who are crisscrossing New Hampshire ahead ahead of the primary the first in the nation primary hoping that it can finally bring some order to the Democratic race which is a bit jumbled candidates. Don't want Iowa to follow them but the results and the contested results now are in fact in play in New Hampshire. Can you explain how that's changed. Is the dynamic on the ground. There certainly things that the candidates don't want to repeat any closure for example does not want to you come in fifth again and yet she has been counting on support in more rural districts in more conservative areas. She actually did pretty well in Iowa in conservative precincts and she's visited some of the rural counties. Here in New Hampshire hoping for a similar kind of support. Because that's New Hampshire is is a much different state. It has a strong libertarian. Streak manufacturing and fishing the powerful industries. It has a complicated relationship relationship with gun policy and a high number of independence and so that doesn't always make it a natural fit for some traditional Democratic candidates and it's very different different from the Iowa caucuses but at the same time both share history in the tradition of our election system. Explain a little bit since there's talk about maybe both of these. You should go away. The significance of having these caucuses and primaries in these states. They've done this for one hundred years. And the Secretary of state expressed confidence. There would be no snafu like there was in in. Iowa and New Hampshire has a law a state law that says it must go I in in the primary very pecking order. It does play this outsized role. Because it's I and because of the retail politics but I'll tell you Michelle. I'm having spoken to so many voters here. They have the very same concerns. That caucus goers in Iowa did it takes a bulldog ball. I think Bernie has we need to be a little bit more towards towards the center to defeat trump. They want a candidate who can best beat Donald Trump. And I'm I'm so struck by how much voters are are starting to sound like cable television pundits. I met one woman at an Elizabeth Warren Rally. She told me she wanted to vote for any closer. So I said okay. Well what are you doing at the Elizabeth Warren Rally. And she said well. I just don't know that. That club has the national appeal or has the campaign infrastructure to carry your through a national campaign. I mean this. This is just an an ordinary woman in Nashua New Hampshire thinking ahead like that and and it's almost as if the voters are scared to vote with their heart because they want to make sure their vote counts beyond this one st so in those final few hours of canvassing New Hampshire. What do candidates need need to do this? A joke in the North country here in New Hampshire Michelle that there are more Moose than people. And and that's where the true swing voters may be. And someone like an Amy Klobuchar has been working hard to win them over. Someone like Joe Biden. Hasn't been to all ten counties. There are only at the moment about nine nine hundred fifty thousand registered voters statewide and so the candidates are just out to meet as many of the responsible. Now now we turn to another battleground state Michigan which in the two thousand sixteen election highlighted the nation's political divisions this week in Michigan however we witnessed the country's divisions Asians over race when one parent at a local school meeting was caught on camera directing a racist comment toward another crying because he was a new school system. And why did you say Mexico. The Pyrrhic was speaking about his son's experience with racism when when he was interrupted by that comment. ABC's TJ homes has more on that story a meeting about racism in a Michigan. School erupts when Adrian Areola who immigrated from Mexico Mexico when the one thousand nine hundred eighty s was interrupted as he described his son's experience. I went to his bedroom to say nine and he was crying because of the abuse. He wants a newer it in this school system in. Why did you say Mexico that's indicative of what our kids and that's scored right now? What our kids are experienced parents in shock doc? They turn their eye or to the parent who asked the question as Erie. Ola tries to hand the mic over and let the man speak. The meeting was to address racial show issues in the school district. After a group of black football players was targeted with racial slurs on snapchat. One of those football players fathers was the first to come to Aereo was defense events at a natural reaction which was the stand up and confront them but by and large. Everybody was supportive. There's lots of tears. Lots Larsen and I think it was an awakening for those people that were unaware that racism exists. The offending parents eventually takes the MIC to make this point to see what happens. You know. He's got her off after the meeting. Arriola told us. The incident felt like an old wound. Being reopened for me from Ola kept his composure and eventually answered the man's question which resulted in another outburst. Talk here because this is the greatest country in the world it is about the school district did put a statement says in part that this type of bigotry goes against all the values and beliefs of our school system says we will continue to listen to parents and students now the man who spoke up in there and made that comment his son actually put out a post on facebook distancing himself from his dad which he actually says his views of hate in no way represent my own. This is an overwhelmingly coming white district. He has been complaining about this for quite some time and the complaint now was confirmed. They're saying this is the type of stuff. We are. Subjected too often days after the incident occurred officials in the town of Saline announced a plan to host a community forum and begin a dialogue to help the community heal me. Now we're going to talk about. The Oscars will reflect on some of the best films of two thousand nineteen and remember a Hollywood legend. Who passed away just this week?

Welcome back to perspective. I'm Michelle Franzen. It's Hollywood's woods biggest night the Oscars area on ABC. TV's Sunday night or discussing some of the most popular films of two thousand nineteen and the best performances. We turn back. ABC Sherry Preston. Who spoke with our veteran entertainment correspondent? Jason Nathanson this Oscar's not his first Rodeo. ABC's Jason Nathanson. We are hearing that. This is the fiftieth breath awards. Show that you have covered for. ABC News is that right. Yeah The fiftieth major one. So we're not counting MTV movie awards and we're not counting American music awards and things like that the big ones the emmys. The grammys the Oscars Golden Globes Blah Blah Blah. This Oscars will be the fiftieth one that I've covered for. ABC News. Tell us about that. What's it like when you cover the Oscars I? It's a very very long day so you you get there around. I don't know about eleven to get to the red carpet to get everything set up technically and everything and then you're just waiting for the stars do arrive. Of course the big stars don't arrive until closer to three or four then you go backstage quote unquote backstage. The actual awards are in the theater theater. And then we're all at the hotel next door the lowes hotel up on the floors and that's where they have to bring everybody back there and everybody's kind of five the wave little number and you hope that you're the person to be called on and for US radio. People were broadcasting live during the actual show so while Brad Pitt or wall Quentin Tarantino or somebody might be coming back you know. It's the biggest moment of their life. They just want an Oscar. They're very excited. People are asking them questions. We're in the corner loudly. Saying and the winner winner for that Blah Blah Blah goes to and we get dirty looks sometimes okay so Jason. Now we're GonNa talk about some of the films that are up this year. What do you think think is the tightest category? Probably his best picture of this year because nobody really knows what's going to happen and we've seen that for a couple of years now but this year really really. You got a lot of different films that have won a lot of different awards. Nineteen seventeen is probably. The front runner in that. Category is a direct order to call off tomorrow morning's attack one one the producers go to war which is the best predictor of. What's going to win best picture but parasite also won a couple of big awards jokers want some the big awards. Do you have any thoughts. I love you really. Don't know what's GonNa once upon a time in Hollywood also could sneaking there as well we really don't know what's going to happen in that category and there's a lot of great pictures of the twenty acting. Nominations in all categories. Best actor actress supporting there are. There's just one person of Color Cynthia Revo nominated for Harriet husband my family. I'm just a stranger in a strange land. If I'm free day should be and what we see with a film like parasite which is so fantastic and one of the reasons that it is is because it's different. It's a different point of view. It's made by different different people outside of the normal Hollywood system and when we talk about inclusion and giving other people chance to tell a story that's a prime example of what happens opens when you do and they make great work. I look at to actor in a supporting role. All of these guys are so strong. It's Tom Hanks for beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Anthony Hopkins were the two popes Alpa Chino and Joe Pesci both for the Irishman and Brad Pitt. Once upon a time in Hollywood Tom Hanks that whole movie was about him. Why is he in a supporting role in enacting? Roll well because the movie was actually about the reporter who talks to him in the film. Mr Rogers I'm here to interview you. It is so nice to meet. You know it's it's not necessarily standard bio-pic of Mister Rogers. It is about the store in this relationship. Attention between these two men and the reporter character. That's the that's the lead role in their the studios. Get to choose where they put people and I think they felt they had a better shot of him getting a nomination and possibly a win in that category which is proven to be true. He's gotten the nomination at every major awards ceremony for the supporting supporting role for that but he hasn't been able to take home a win. Well I have to tell you. I think that the selection of movies that are up for awards this year at the Oscars are stunning and there. I think it's one of the best asked years that we've had in a long time. Yeah looking at all of them. Ford versus Ferrari his main one reason fire. Everyone starting with an underrated and I think not a lot. The people are talking about is a great movie. Irishman is a great movie. Joe Rabbits Fantastic jokers been divisive but also it's a very good movie. I loved little. Women tend to make my own way in the world though one makes their own way. Waste of all women. You'll need to marry well. You're not married because I'm rich. I thought it was a great retelling of this story framed in a way we haven't seen before marriage story I think is very strong for me. It was a little too much like a play but you know hey nine hundred seventeen is fantastic fantastic once upon a time in Hollywood. That's the only one. I don't think it's necessarily best picture Oscar worthy and then you have parasite which is just so mind-bending different nineteen seventeen with its single shot. Take type thing once upon a time in Hollywood just doesn't rise to that level okay. Well it's a really strong year here for the Oscars Jason Covering it for an award.

It's always exciting to play as its chair. Admit shed Marcus upset. What's matter wanted to movie trivia? This is numbers numbers by. Oh you don't like something like numbers. No no I'm autistic distict. But I can't fuck with numbers YOU'RE GONNA lose Norman so like if if it was if I ask how many dwarves or that one movie number question Seven give me the points points David but if you're talking about bad Santa want right though there wasn't seven jobs there were the monster lets out the actual game. Sorry about that. It was fun leading up to the game. Here let's go during the games that'd be very disruptive. Wait your turn. Can you can rearrange the furniture. Like sure I feel like I did get an answer right. I should get the points but whatever let's go with this is really good definitely a question. Okay so David One our first game that means he he gets to go first in this next game where I is the best place to go anyway. All right we'll start with you. Then go to Taylor because he brought you here and then you get back. Clean up down there and you'll know you'll know what what to do back feeling all right so Disney plus just started. WHO's got Disney plus movies these Zor movies people? It's true and one movie that did not make the cut for Disney plus at least initially. Is that racist movie song of the Sow Classic. which I I honestly wanted to see because I just I saw it as a child and you know? I didn't in catch the racism and I'm sure it's right there and so I just want to see it again from the perspective of understanding. Why why ED movies should never be seen again? But the question is when it came out people were not that upset about it now now white people were fine with it. I guess it's one of those things. Is that the the Black Crowes. So how much did it. Well that's the the thing is on all the cartoons that they have on there. The Aristocrats Dumbo a couple others. They announce at the beginning. Hey there's some things in this were. Are you know culturally inappropriate. Yes exactly you put a little disclaimer in the front. And then you know you're watching the risk of cats and these these Asian cats run into go. Oh march favorite bar. Crazy Rich Asians. Aw I should have done that during the impressions part. I can't believe I talk about racism and Disney movies but yeah so the data displayed on those. But nobody's really dying to see song of the south. Anyway I guess but I know I didn't I thought the PEOP- There were animated. I made a parts and people parts and other people are boring when I was a kid. Sure so the only part I liked the animated part and as far as I know that part's only kind of racist. This show could use a mansion. Say No let's keep it rolling. David Time to chew on this Motion Picture Song of the South. How much did it make? Oh are we converting bring the money no adjusted for inflation but it is according to box office MOJO DOT COM. So I'M NOT GONNA take America. Take the personal blame. Somebody's gotTa figure and we doing prices right. Rules rights is right without going over. Have verisign on there some fool when they're not even the last bidder. We'll do the one dollars and then the person next to them. We'll go two dollars so I shouldn't say one dollar Azazel truck. Yeah the I. I can't say one dollar you got to at least try. It made more than a dollar to be honest with you. I never I heard of this film before just getting. I'm going to say one hundred million Austin Austin powers one. I'm going to say one hundred million dollars one hundred now. It's so how much money I don't know how much eighty million dollars eighty eight say fifty five million going to say thirty million dollars. Thirty million twenty two million dollars twenty dollars doing this is Israel prices right style audience guests for the exact number. It's like you. We know what I love and a guest stupidity. No answer the audience to help you out. All I love your audio doing bring in the parts where I would rather they did. If you're requesting it but I am I am. I asked him for help. Okay I won't. Yeah Yeah. I'll never do that again. Because pantomime or gets really weird. Yeah I say twenty two million. Is that what I'm saying. No you said a lot of numbers game show going with that. I saw a lot of game shows right now. We're on they. They put us in these short chairs and now we were just acting like kids. What happens when my feet touched the ground? It's million I'll take fifty million. It's GONNA take fifty million everybody Taylor today again David. Yeah Okay what do you think two hundred thousand. whoa the dollar basically a dollar? I don't know all right. A hundred thousand the modern version of a dog. That's a dollar okay. Who's next Chad I'll say fifteen million fifteen. What did you say Dave? I'm not gonNa tell you what I said. Mar Go after yourself. Sixteen million sixteen million and I said fifty million. I said a bunch of numbers but I don't even know what put down. It's his official answers. Twenty to twenty five fifty. I thought it was twenty. Two million final answer was fifty Shit I never said final answer. Twenty two million final answer Davidson fifty and tailors. A one hundred dollars. So you're more clear about what other people are Bathing Eh. I only had one bid true. It's much easier to answer to keep track here. One Bit Chats fifteen mark. I'm going to go one million. You could've just said one hundred and one thousand thousand but whatever that's true Nice you're nice guy. I can't add right. Yeah well you know the thing was. It was a hit motion Russian picture and tickets. Tickets were cheaper for sure but it's still managed to make thirty seven point four. Camila you did twenty two would have been better for you right now but you changed it to fifty at the end Chad with his fifteen. Is the winner of that game. Chad told you say sixteen million more I thought about it. There's no points he's one nothing for the honor of getting about a racist movie Louis. Yeah he knows the most. He's the most racist of everybody so he gets to go first. and which may not even be the best position in this game true. We'll see optimism. Santa chance that's great. I love that optimism. Let's go do. I'll let you know what I don't think thank you have a chance anymore and it's going to be before it's over you're not going up. You're not going all the way against this crew. Yeah look at Mark Down. This is a game called. ABCD's now we're talking skin spelling fun. I'll give you a letter in the sequence of letters spell something I'll tell you what we're going to spill in the second And then you just name. Any movie begins with that letter. But if you wrote down a few say movie that I wrote down already then if we match then you automatically win and there is a theme pretty sure and we're going to start art with Chad and then go to mark and then to David did Taylor all right chair gets the first letter in. We're going to spell. That's important is saying right now. We're going to spell impeachment a hot topic these days whether you like it or a two years or you're for it and so so I thought it'd be fun to spell to spell it I you know. I've pretty sure I've always known how to spell it. But some people might get tripped up on it. That's not war here. Reduce the funds. If you match figure out what I was thinking chat start off with a movie any movie and you stay in the game but if view match me you win. Any movie begins with the letter. I incredible Mr limpet aches. I liked like that. I think it's probably the incredible. Mr PIPPA bother to figure that out at this time fool of course begins with a T.. How are we doing does a we sure are shit story about? There's only one impeachment pretty much can be over at that point. I went with the motion picture. Called in the loop okay. He's go from the crowd. No I've got a nicer one guy. Great get a Nice Nice Nice. A jailer letter is M.. Maybe we're not going this way anymore. Okay mark in for Mark Mars attacks. Oh that's a good. That's a good one. I went with man end of the year. O K. Now we come over this way to Dave not on the wavelength of you so far doug all right okay. You'll figure it out maybe some day P is the letter p. e. for David people talking talking loudly in the balcony for some reason. I asked for a pin. A lot of data oughta go ask full. They're almost louder than me. Now that's true through. I'm trying to think of one movie that begins with a P.. Happen often on your show where people absolutely stomped it happened. The last time you were on and Uh that happens all right. Yeah I'll bring people out of the bully me I mean. Come on and tell you what I'm trying to defend you at this point you just up to me. You can't use that. Eric was Eric I league. He was giving you an answer. I think he was calling. You names.

You've friends with Joe Joe Rap. Wow it's amazing it's kind of interesting I actually just can't think of one possible thing. What movie were we trying to go down the fucking? That's true. Yeah that's true. It's there's so many you you could. GimMe Gimme head as well Doug. I don't help album. Yeah it's just like what at this part I'll the words to begin with the letter. P those probably the neighbor something paranormal activity. See how that works talking to answer questions sane. Doug was insane. All I was thinking was how boring that was for. Everyone listening those nuts. It's never happened to you rose. What's a word word? Nobody you did it. Paranormal activity is that what you were mentioning. That was like a scene out of the king's speech. Yeah you are a great coach dog. You're the gray coach scene where the wife has had enough. That's okay so that wasn't a match. Holy Shit I wouldn't be sitting here this casually. We've just mad paranormal activity with primary colors. I even remember this letter that goes to tailor e. I don't know what your theme is. So I'm just GONNA say ever after I it kind of fits into what your theme election. Oh uh-huh yeah somebody audience smarty pants next latter Chad.

But no I I kid But yet today we did we did this intentional two-parter and i. know the first one seemed a little on the short side. But we felt like it was a good kind of primer to now get you into some like really cool dives into some of the most notable. Jewish pirates and privateers from throughout history So what do you say we? We jump right in with Simon raise. Aka. The Great Ju- Yes, let's walk the plank of the podcast with the help of our Super Producer Casey peg. No doubt brandishing a scimitar behind US forcing US along you're right. This guy was known as the Great Ju also, as we go through this episode, please if you're played along your home, let us know what your ideal pirate nickname would be i. think that's the coolest thing. If you're a pirate, you get a nickname right we've talked about cool professional nicknames in the past but raise had the Moniker, the Great Jew he and his family like. So many of the people we mentioned in part one of the show they fled the Spanish inquisition in the early fifteen hundreds and I they went to Turkey, and then it was in modern day Izmir Turkey where Synon- came the right hand man of a fellow named. Hey. Ridden bar. Barrosa. One of the most famed pirates of all time Barbarossa would eventually go on to become a Sultan Commander in the Ottoman Navy and these guys had their own interesting take on the pirate flag They sure did and just one quick little snippet of backstory on Synon-. He was born to Sephardic Jewish. Parents who fled Spain and then look like you said located into the Ottoman Empire but I just I thought the distinction of Sephardic. Jews was interesting because I wasn't intimately familiar with this tradition and it specifically refers to descendants of Jews who lived in Spain and Portugal from the later centuries of the Roman Empire until they were essentially forced out. Of those countries in the last decades of the fifteenth century and that's from Britannica there just to just to give credit where credit is due but this is something I wasn't intimately familiar with. So always interesting to learn about new kind of cultural offshoots. But yes to to your point, ben about they're kind of interesting spin on the Jolly Roger, which we heard from you. Last episode of did have some variations there's had a six sided star very much seeming to be a reference to the Jewish Star of David in place of. That smiling skeleton boy and they were a dynamic duo on the high seas. Probably their biggest victory came in fifteen thirty eight during something called the battle of Preveza right off the coast of Greece. Ottoman. Forces led by these two guys defeated an entire flotilla of armed ships from Christian countries that have been kind of assembled or Justice League by Pope Paul. The third this victory, there's ensured that the Ottoman forces would dominate the Mediterranean for generations to come, and this is where Synon- earned his nickname is street name the great do. You know who gave it to him? His enemies. On the Spanish side of the conflict. Totally. Yeah. It makes me think of immediately if the character and inglorious bastards the one with the Baseball Bat, you know bashing heads all the time. He gets his nickname from his enemies to was the bear Jew, right because he was known for bashing heads. So you always know if you get a pretty cool sounding nickname from your enemies, you doing something right striking fear into the right hearts you know what I mean I still think that you know the Spanish forces at this point we're like, why not throw it some hate speech. While we're here, let's just also be sold. I. Don't know what they. You know what I mean. I. Don't know how they meant it to be received but I agree with you, it is a very bad ass nickname. People were so intimidated by the sky or looked up to him depending on where they stood in the conflict that they began spreading rumors of his sorceress powers. He was so good at navigating. The sees that people started saying he had to use magic to do it. They're like there's only one way I love picturing this conversation. It's bunch other sailors meeting up and they're like look guys. We know we're just mainly winging it out there how to Synon- know where he's going all the time and someone else said I think it's magic bro, and they were like, yeah, because that was a sufficient explanation of things at the time. Well, mistaken wasn't part of that kind of. Antisemitic attitude and almost fear of Jews as having some kind of being like which is or something or as as possessing some kind of magical powers you often hear kind of dated jokes about even in like you know the That that fantastic film Joe Rabbits by TYCO A T T, there's a character i. don't want to about the movie, but there's a child who refers to Jews as being like having the ability to hypnotize you or something like that like Oh. Yeah. Empire rules or whatever, and think that sort of attitude about like they've they're using witchcraft to do this navigation was probably a pretty widespread idea an another way to further dehumanize people when you really think it all the way through. So interestingly enough you can read more about Barbarossa and synonymous adventures. In the five volume book of Barbara's memoirs that he dictated Tucson, they currently reside in the Istanbul University Library. So this guy's having an adventure that most people don't know about which is crazy I would love to see the film which I know I've been saying like every episode we do but so many of these stories are just perfect there. So cinematic okay. We can't spend all their time on this guy. Though? What say we move onto another great nickname the pirate rabbi Yeah Samuel Palash. Palace. Shea I'M GONNA go with Palash. What do you think? Probably. GonNa get corrected either way. Let's stick with Yeah. This guy wasn't just your run of the mill son of Abraham. He was actually a rabbi, his name was rabbi Schmil PA-, LACI and He is said to have taken part in some pretty serious pirate raids against Spanish and Dutch ships which would have been under the privateer side. Isn't that right them? Yeah. He was working for the Dutch government and then he was also working for the Sultan of barbary Morocco. He was instrumental in one of the very first treaties between European Middle Eastern powers. That's the sixteen ten agreement that guaranteed peace between Morocco and the Netherlands. So. Despite the fact that he had trained as a rabbi, he obviously felt more called to this life on the high seas as a privateer but he was still a man of faith. He was still pious and one of the rules on his ship was that. The members of the crew had to donate a tenth of their loot. I'll just say a code of their booty to charity. Lean into it did. And he also kept things kosher on a ship, which if you think about that, that's seems like at some point, it could get a little. Tough right. I mean it you know it takes a lot of effort and certainly you don't have the luxury of having access to like things when you're you know far far away at sea but that whole aspect of like donating to charity. That's the real kicker for me. That's fantastic So sixteen, Fourteen, Morocco and Spain went to war with each other and Palash. was responsible for. Heading up a small Moroccan fleet. That was destined for a conflict with Spanish ships and actually was able to be successful and capture them He was though arrested by the Spanish ambassador and then tried under Spanish for piracy. There's a letter to a Dudley Carleton who was the British ambassador to Venice than and he summed up the life of this Jewish pirate thusly on this comes from a S H dot com I'm not familiar with the words. So forgive me if I'm I address spell mispronounce, which is a really great resource for Jewish culture and heritage and all kinds of history and cool storytelling highly recommend it but eight little known facts about Jewish pirates, and they. Have this quote from Dudley. Carleton and keep in mind that maybe some of this language might sound a little charged. I'm just reading it from historical record quote here is a Jew pirate. That brought threes, prizes of Spaniards into Plymouth. He shall likely pass out of here well, enough for he has league and licensed under the Kings Hand for his free egress and regress which was not believed until he made proof of it. Okay. Yes. So eventually they had to they, they realized he is approved by the highest authority to basically do what he wants. Right it's imagine you know we talk about sometimes in spy novels right? The idea of a license to. But imagine, there was a country where you literally got A. Letter the whip out. The says something like. Super Producer. Casey, peg room has the express authorization of the US government whatever he wants to go yep. I would love that I would. I would probably get into some really poorly thought out hijinks. Plash was acquitted. He was set free when he passed away in sixteen sixteen he was given a hero's funeral every single member of the Jewish community in Amsterdam got together and marched in his funeral procession, and they were not alone. They were joined by royalty and they were joined by elders of the city itself. So this person. Had had an immense amount of support and recognition in his time. Yeah. For sure am like we said bus another myth about pirates. I mean this guy seemed like a pretty benevolent pirate at the end of the day and had a bit of a moral code which I appreciate because you think of pirates is just you now being wanting and not following the rules and this guy was definitely a different spin. On that? All right. Let's move on to another Amazing nickname on a nickname but like a a gang name this was this one's about subba tall and the Brotherhood of the black flag which sounds like definitely a black flag tribute band, right? Don't I'm not alone in that okay. So this guy was a Jewish physician living in the sixteenth century, an educated man, and he was an explorer of what would. Now be known as the America's He's also. Credited by some with introducing the potato to Europeans which Nice win man. I I've been thinking about this during you know what I miss I miss having fries French fries. The I didn't cook. Yes. You're really been doing much like a dry theory of immune to a chick-fil-a or any any of that Yeah. I went through a drive through once but usually usually have been staying in in cooking. It's a little healthier something to do I've been I've been cooking. So weird stuff you guys all right now and you're talking about you're going to have a seafood. Mc Strata Ganda with your Japanese Grill. After we get done recording and I think you've inspired me to go a seafood route myself dinner my mom visiting. But speaking of the sea and food we were talking about potatoes minute ago and now we're talking about super tall and the Brotherhood of black flag. He formed a bond some something of an alliance with another famous explorer son who realized as well that the the profession of piracy was a pretty good racket and that was the son of Sir Francis Drake Henry So the. To. became inseparable and they started this organization. If you want to call it that known as the Brotherhood of the black flag, it was absolutely a band of pirates That was hell bent on attacking as many Spanish ships they could write off of the coast of a place that I think you have very recently been a modern day Chile. Yes that's right. They are said to have buried six thousand pounds of Spanish gold and an even larger amount of silver near harbor in Chile at this time, no one is found that buried treasure. However. Treasure hunters have found some documents that were partially written in Hebrew that they believe may have been written by Super Bowl himself so. It is quite possible someone off the coast of Chile one day find the hidden treasure of the Brotherhood of the black flag absolutely ben and just for reference if you wanted to check out this. In Chile today if you ever find yourself back on a plane and maybe you live there, it is near the guy can harbor today and that's spelled G. U. A. Y. A. C. A. N. I think guy can is probably a decent pronunciation there, but let us know. This.

We talked about Heist talked about pirates. Now we're talking about a pirate heist it comes to US courtesy of Moshe, Cohen. Or Moses go in a as depending on where you go with translation. He was one of the most famous of revenge seeking Jewish privateers and pirates he started his life In secrecy as a Jewish person because he grew up under the inquisition in Portugal. He was asked time one of the most well known prominent successful merchants in the capital of Portugal Lisbon. and. Then he was discovered to be Jewish and to be practicing his faith in sixteen o five, he and one hundred and fifty other people were publicly tortured. And this changed Cohen's life. He decided that he was going to work against Spain and Portugal and fight against the injustices. Of the inquisition I the had to escape. Yeah. That'll certainly do and he did that thing he got out of Amsterdam and he pretty quickly seem to find his way into the good graces of the Dutch and he became essentially a spy for them for the Dutch navy and he settled in Jamaica, which was already starting to become this kind of safe haven for these Jewish ex pats. and he worked with the Dutch on behalf of the Netherlands to attack these Spanish vessels and just kind of be a thorn in the side of these colonial ambitions to take over the new world. This everyone was vying for a lot of that real estate, right? Yeah. That's right. This is part of a massive land and resource grab on the part of the European powers. Cohen even teams up with one of the most feared pirates of the day a man named Sir. Ian and Sir Henry Morgan is a dangerous dangerous dude, right but. This land grab this age of expansion panic that so many European powers are going through a makes them bend the rules a little bit more, and so the Dutch and British governments actually. They're not very loud about it, but they back up Cohen and Henry Morgan would that be Captain Henry Morgan of the of the rum fame, the Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. Yeah. Remember Captain Morgan's Ab surely it's named after. Yeah I mean, what would what would imagine a captain? Morgan was a Sir Henry. Morgan is a Welsh privateer and it was a plantation owner who eventually became Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. So he was in the halls of power. But the to be clear. The what I'm talking about I, say the quiet support is the Dutch and British governments quietly supporting Cohen in his partnership Sir Henry Morgan was already kind of like. Above, reproach in a lot of ways because he was so powerful and just for the record confirmed captain, Morgan Rum is named after Sir Henry Morgan for his adventures in the in the Caribbean. True. Yeah. I mean it makes sense to me right And drink responsibly, and you too can live like the captain you. Wonder why they never had a tagline like promote yourself or even used that I'm the captain now mem-. Be. Great. That would be good. You know what I was thinking in my mind I was confusing the the captain Morgan's tagline with the Captain Crunch tagline which I think is superior is you in the cabin make it happen? There were go. And drink responsibly. And eat your sugary cereals responsibly kids right. Eat Your breakfast candy responsibly. That's still baffles me. So here, let's fast forward to the house. We promise you a heist. There is a heist evolve in sixteen twenty eight. Cohen helps the Dutch west India Company Pool One of the most profitable see heist in the entire history of piracy they steal like over a billion dollars, worth of gold and silver for Spanish fleet off the coast of Cuba and when we say a billion that's awes- roughly adjusting for how much this and silver would be worth in today's age but it's still it's still kind of tough to To get a super accurate calculation they're just it was a lot of money but wait a minute I thought the Dutch west. India was a legitimate business. What are they doing pulling off heists? Dutch west India Company. Well, the Okay Specifically Cohen Health Admiral Pete Hein is over. We're going to be all unfunded factual about it. The Dutch west India company was not was probably not officially sanctioning this heist, but without doing a whole episode about them yet I wouldn't put it past them in they are. Very bad group, but in another thing in our views look up. In Britannica Dutch west India company it says using booty acquired from the capture by the Dutch seamen Piet Hein of part of Spanish treasure fleet. The company challenged the Portuguese. Brazil beginning in sixteen thirty and attained his greatest success during the administration of Count John Maurice. So they definitely ran on it and they're definitely sanction it. Yeah we should do at some point a story about some of the many crimes of those organizations because even if you know a lot about him, you might not know the whole terrible story. So. Not long after successfully pulling off this massive see Heist Cohen starts his own pirate island. Off The coast of Brazil to mentioned earlier, and then once Portugal takes over the area Cohen becomes this adviser to Captain Henry Mortgage. Drink responsibly indeed, and then you know Cohen does finally going to retire I. Guess He's getting up there in years. Sir Henry Morgan becomes Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica and actually pardon Cohen's Ochoa living in the clear and he stayed in Jamaica until he passed away living the life of a civilian but having had some Hella Adventures the pirates life was certainly for him but he knew when to say when just like you should when you're drinking captain Morgan's rum that's right and that's a lovely pirate stereotype a bust, not all pirates died on the high seas in you know a a wave of treasure and blood falling to cannon fire. Some people were actually able to retire which I thought was pretty cool. And now I think we have time for one more someone who's been called occasionally the most famous Jewish pirates. Jean Lafitte was born in France in about seventeen eighty. I had no idea John the feet was was Jewish pirate certainly heard of him from the feats blacksmith shop in in New Orleans, which I believe is the oldest bar still an operation there possibly in the United States it's been around for a very, very long time And it's a pretty fun little dive bar to check out they have really get hurricanes. But yeah, John the feet was born in France in about seventeen eighty, like you said and there is a pretty controversial work called the Journal of the feet controversial and it may or may not have been written by him or could be some kind of forgery it. Could be could have been by third party He does claim that his mother's father was a Spanish Jew who was subjected to torture under the inquisition and much like some of the previous entries in this list seeing that happen to his family created a lifelong hatred for Spain and four, obviously the the Spanish inquisition and decided that he wanted to. Wreck their shop and like just absolutely be another thorn in the side of the Spanish Armada Right So he wanted to mess with their money because they have these holdings in the new world and that's where the inquisition was absolutely like burning their way across the land. So John, moves to R-. Orleans? To escape the inquisition, he doesn't move along he brings his brother, Piere and together they found a blacksmith shop and they do pretty well but there's a conspiracy afoot because they have a second secret profession they have commissions from the Republic of Cartagena to intercept Spanish boats. So wilder operating their blacksmith shop, they carry on this secluded interdiction career from a secluded colony in Bar Atari Bay off the coast of New Orleans. That's cool. Secret pirates is a recall and from that same article from J.. Post dotcom Jewish pirates of the Caribbean they have really great quote from a professor by the name of Edward Bernard Glick who an article called the feats. Jewish origins in the Jerusalem Post back in two thousand and six, and he says Lafitte was also a Sephardic Jew along with his first wife and Glick points out that not only did laugh it run single pirate ship. He had a whole fleet of them that he kind of ran like kind of a mob boss almost from his blacksmith shop, which also was a site for fencing stolen pirate loot. That's my favorite part. By the way you know Y- come for the horseshoes and then east stay for the emeralds right? Or maybe like a curse skull I don't know. I. Don't know what kind of stuff they're fencing in this pirate Jim. This episode of ridiculous history is brought to you by our friends at Bollandbranch Ben. Let me ask you. Do you know what?

So years before the battle of New Orleans and before the war of eighteen twelve. He's already got beef with the authorities and there's there's very strange flex. A weird flex that he does I bet miles and Jack would love this the Louisiana Governor William C C Claiborne places a reward of five hundred dollars on the fits head and what does he do? He retaliates by putting a five thousand dollar bounty on the head of the governor. He's telling the governor of Louisiana stop playing with Brooke Boy Rules. You know what I mean seriously holy cow that is a I wouldn't say that a weird flex as much as it's just a power move of epic proportions. So, okay. We we know where this guy stands but then in the war of eighteen twelve, the feet in his capacity as a spy warned American troops of the British invasion. But now like the Beatles one, this is a military invasion and he offered to help out Andrew. Jackson? Who was the general defending New Orleans at the time with some of his top guys from his pirate. Crew. Yup. He said, we'll do this. We'll help you out andy which I'm sure he called Andrew Jackson Andy Right so we'll help you out andy. You have to do is give us a full pardon for anything we ever may have or may have not done deal and Andy says yet deal. The pirate gang does a great job Jackson in fact, later in life Jackson goes on to call. La Fit one of the ablest men of the battle of New Orleans. So it sounds like he earned that pardon one hundred percent and you know he he takes it easy for a little while but a couple years after this massive, you know hero moment he starts back up into pirating. Piracy Pirating I'm GonNa go with pirate pirating. It's just fun to say but he moved shop to Galveston Texas and brings close to a thousand buccaneers along with them and he established like a pirate community the he referred to his kingdom named Campeche on the barrier island of Galveston which is a thing it's on the Gulf coast I didn't realize Galveston was an island and they lived under the rule of the time the new waiver Espana Colony of Mexico and he partnered up with a Portuguese Ju by the name of. Wow de la Hoya and some of their biggest named You Know Heist Buds were folks like a Bowie of the Alamo fame also known for the knife th th that was named him. So until he passed away in eighteen twenty, five John, Lafitte. Of the most feared pirates of the Spanish main and the Spanish main is the eastern coast of Spain's possessions in the new world. At this time, you can see traces of his story everywhere. New Orleans, there's a national park named after him The author we mentioned part. One of this series even posits that this man was the inspiration for Johnny Depp in the pirates of the Caribbean movies but A. I still still feel like the inspiration is that guy from the Rolling Stones Keith Stewart Keith. Stewart. Is a guy who went to high school with and if you're hearing this Keith I, hope you're well the other Keith Keith Richards. Yes and he was be played his father in one of the movies I. Think those are not how he definitely was I think he's probably inspired like maybe Lafitte was part of the stoorikhel call precedent but certainly, his mannerisms were all Keith Richards. Yes. So maybe in that point, we're talking about the creative. Inspiration of the screenwriters or the scriptwriters and the creative inspiration of the actors. But there there you have it folks for a long long time the stories of these. privateers and pirates were rarely explored in the history books and that began to change in the last decade or so when historical graveyards were unearthed in the Caribbean that revealed the extent of the Jewish population that had gone, they're seeking safety from the inquisition and also helped us understand that several individuals in these communities were indeed pirates. Yeah. That's right and back in two thousand seven, the Caribbean volunteer. Expeditions nonprofit cultural preservation. Society in the Caribbean has started to take a lot of steps in compiling a lot of these research materials and artifacts and inventory and these gravesites like you mentioned Ben to really shine a light on this. mainly. Kind of lost part of history transcribing epitaphs and just creating wealth of information that folks that are interested they want to find out more about the The Jewish pirate community was forced out of Spain largely due to fear of being persecuted and tortured by the absolutely horrific. Spanish inquisition I see this with sincerity. What an astonishing story and how fortunate we are to be able to learn more about it in the present day. You know I'm pretty happy that we made this two-parter. Oh, I am too and I did when I one last little thing that that I think is super interesting and I always wondered about because of this mass let's let's not forget like this was about Jamaica specifically about about these Jewish pirates that got their start after Immigration Jamaica in addition other places. But that was sort of the big one in terms of how much of the you know parliament they made up in terms of the seats. And that has a lot to do with it maintains a big part of the heritage of Jamaica. Wish, you think of oftentimes intertwined with Rust Foreign Ism and as it turns out, the concept of Rastafarianism has a lot of connections with Judaism, their Messiah the VIP and Emperor Highly Selassie was said to have been descended from King Solomon and obviously one of their most powerful symbols in Russifying ISM is the lion of Judah and Rastafarians also keep kosher. Yeah. There are so many. Misconceptions about rastafarianism here in the West, it probably deserves its own episode as well. There is fascinating history there of course, piracy is not over I rec- continues in different parts of the world. You've probably seen stories about piracy in the Middle East or off the coast of Somalia recently a, but this age of piracy seems to be unique because of the way it meshed and involved in concert with the age of maritime expansion from Europe and the. One of the many waves of anti-semitism that Europe experienced at the time to try court hats off to you pirates of of history. I don't know I mean a weird spot with this because I don't WanNa completely condone. The you know the behaviors of these people which at times had to be brutal and violent and bloody but also I'm I love the idea of fighting back against this institutional evil of the inquisition. and you got to give him props for their open-mindedness culturally and allowing folks that were basically cast off if not outright. Hunted by by certain individuals in power and bringing them into their ranks and not judging them for their heritage or any of that stuff. So that's pretty cool and very punk rock if you ask me Yeah Oh that's great. That's that's a great way to to into this Noel Casey we would be doing a terrible job if we didn't include some of the cool parts of real life pirate code, this comes to us from Mark Man Seaney over at mental floss some of these rules might surprise you. So we talked about voting mentioned voting that's awesome They also said you can't steal from other pirates. I guess offer among thieves. Oddly enough they said nobody can gamble. which which feels like a weird vice to isolate, but I guess it was bad for life on the ship a everybody had a bedtime that a curfew. Yes lights out. Are you get a spanking. they also had to. Also had to always be ready detangle. Each man must keep his piece cutlass and pistols and all times clean and ready for action I just love ms piece cutlass pistols. Yeah. I like how they say peace cutlass epistles because you gotta wonder what's the peace? What's the piece I thought? The piece was the pistol yeah. Maybe. It's like a Bolo or a or a side piece maybe like a little when you keep in your pirate boot. Yeah or like a a mace or like a Frisbee I, don't know tell us what you think the best pirate piece would be. They all says, it never bring your date home right? Most of these things did not add instant of fatal punishment but if you brought. A. Person of any sort with you. For romantic purposes onto the ship, you would be put to death the out loud a lot of things punishable by death or marooning, which I guess means abandoning you on a desert island with nothing but maybe a mix tape of your favorite songs and one last week I'd love to point to because it is kind of progressive is the way that mental floss puts it as lose. A. Limb get workers COMP, and here's the code every man who shall become a cripple or lose a limb in the service shall have eight hundred pieces of eight from the common stock, and for Lesser Hurts proportionately and pieces of eight being a very popular and widely accepted Spanish coin that I think we're even American legal tender until eighteen, fifty seven what a ride. Oh Man I. You know we busted a lot of stereotypes here. and. We talked a little bit about the complex cultural situation. But still you know like the six or seven year old in me is so into the idea of just hopping on a boat and living life on the high seas, I don't think I would want to do it with a crew though I wanna be like Kevin Costner in waterworld and just have like my own. Thing in assistant, you guys remember waterworld. That's one of Casey's Favorite Films Right Yeah Jeanne tripplehorn turned in a tour De Force performance as did Dennis Hopper and here the ride universal's pretty cool but wait a minute. How would you feel about? Like more of like a like a Tom Hanks and castaway kind of situation. What would be your inanimate object you at anthropomorphized? That wouldn't be a computer with a satellite link. I you know that's a good question. If you had to anthropomorphized something on a desert island I would try I would try to make like a really cool sculpture or something. You know leave a mark after I'm done as far as companionship I'd probably see if I could befriend some of the native fauna. Have like a psychic bird or Mammal of some sort because I don't know if you could be friend of fish perhaps they were be corvettes on this island where you where you wind up I, know you have a real kinship with those guys. Do What about you know? What would you What would you do to while away the lonely days on a desert island I go with coconut. Just. Because it's obvious you know. You can draw face on it. I mean not have volleyball volleyball seemed good because it's like sodas you know squishy. You can put your head on it. Maybe a maybe a pillow we'd get dirty I don't know I'm Gonna I'm GonNA stick with Coconuts Yeah Tiger I wanna Tiger I wanna be friends with Tiger be friends with the tiger let you ride around on his back and potentially also talked to you when she showed started going.

I didn't know how 'cause all the topics are very few. They're mediocre Gawker so there's not really like a leading topic. You put everything in leading topic joker five five podcasts in a row. It's a good right right now. Quick Pavement Trans. I actually do that more. This Click Bait Yeah. We got to write trans born. Every topic would be trump. It's like I don trump said something on social like social media world social media world so it's like. I don't know that Charlie's Angel Music Videos James Charles Charles. He's probably doing something right. He's he doesn't make up very controversial figure in the world of makeup who Tube James Charles. Why am I brush up on your makeup James Brown around. I think he's saying his name. That's not the sexy yeah joker joker joker top prizes. That's a kind of amateur. I don't like the makeup that's on his final. Look like he's a super sane. It's just going to transform into to the final joker just bleached skin at happened. We don't know I wanNA many times or if if ever really did happen where studio put out early like an early poster then actually changed it off of the public's reaction I off the top of the you had to. You have to nominate happen. Sometimes Sonic is doing oh yeah. Actually I mean that's the most ridiculous fucking thing ever. No one cares about the sonning movie and they just what's the first topic spent all their money joker yeah at the Sonic podcast structure to Saudi sonic both those two guys from the sonic commercials and they do podcasts the non sonic about food Mixon Accardo. Now you go to sonic into my life. I've been the commercial. I like the ocean water. It's Nice it's weird. It's like a Funky sprite but yeah talk for our top prize at the Venice Film Festival. That's prestigious isn't yet a film festival in Venice. Aren't you going to Venice for your honeymoon. Yes you're going somewhere run. Italy okay at Lawrence General Location if you like this movie has to be it's a movie or hate getting so much high praise. Now I'm expecting flocking. I go yeah but with the joker appalling dynamite joker. It's I haven't really heard too much nicotine. You see like the heartaches bad for in society or whatever but other than that everyone's saying masterpiece walking Phoenixes Green winning this award. That's you know an award that I've always wanted to win. When I heard about it yesterday and Ashby Yeah Okay walking one yeah Perry number offer collider. She said that her her negative comment was at the movie was was upsetting but not in a sense of disappointing. I guess it was something I guess happens in the movie that is so upsetting that was actually a negative for her which is interesting thing but she said it was the most unnerving film she's seen in quite some time. Those are good things though yeah. That's what we're expensive. He goes around like chopping off the heads of a puppy. I hope National People always said like Oh are you. New Job is thrown puppies out of windows. I'm pretty sure or babies babies now puppies. He wouldn't go that far but fucking fucked him kits This looks like assembly like a really realistic joker where I wonder if people are thinking like where are you saying is bad for society where like this actually happen where it can actually turn to do this or it's already happening. It is happening yeah. It's a society that people that's the argument. People are going to make there was one critic who like don't make me sympathize with the joker and then somebody went back in her tweets from two years ago like Dan the punisher so good. I think it was the joker such like no no. She was talking about the joker like that's what I meant yeah that she don't make me sympathize the joker yeah but I was. I don't know it's movies. You can make a feel you can make a movie. Whatever you want us to be about and then we'll see how it comes when it when it comes out that's a bolt system yeah? Are you sure you want shall we cut that movie should've shouldn't be all right. You put yourself out there. Why it's your I can make a movie about anything like in the realm of like the joker the most least controversial tape here like you like walking it in everyone even with Joe Joe Rabbit. Everyone's like Oh. You can't make a satire in Nazi Germany. Yes you can talk with. Td just did I ends its. I guess we'll judge when it comes out but it's I'm tired of it. It's it's our make what you want and then if it's that egregious and bed and it'll be like hey you suck this. This movie sucks well. That's next on the list. It's knives out. We've got a couple of rotten. Tomatoes scores knives out the new Ron. Johnson is at one hundred percent gold. Fish Goldfinch is at twenty seven percent with thirty reviews. Joe Rabbit is at sixty four twenty five and the surprise the new Jennifer Lopez Cardi B. O. Kurt movie hustlers ninety four just told me she wants to go. See that movie I when we saw the trailer was media and Nash I guess at the movies right so for the first time you were there to you weren't Zuma. I was like this looks like a like a movie like it's not just oh we got J. Lo and Cardi. It's going to be a fun girls out. No like this is a it's almost like a crime film. It's feminist empowerment but they're also terrible people to me. That's really interesting and everybody saying J.lo's got the performance of a lifetime in this. That's Oscar buzz before what do you what do you see like Jennifer Lopez as a singer or a an actor. You know it's not even to to sound pretentious for her but more. She's become like an icon. She Jennifer Lopez. You know she sings. She dances a great singer or musical artist. Her biggest song is what Jenny from the block. Yeah and she's out there. Yes she's got a couple hits. You know she's she's well. She's also a sex symbol. Bush's big with a an with their Spanish music. Yeah I mean I'm Puerto Rican. My family treats her like she's Queen Elizabeth. It's like her and mark. Anthony breaking up was the biggest heartbreak of the twenty first century in general for you guys is like Andrea Bocelli Farrah's. I'll I'll take your word for that. My grandpa thanks Sandy. Colfax is the greatest pitcher. It's it's funny how that goes for every Puerto Rican. Is You know Victor. Cruz is big in this house. Jj Berea JJ Berea all the Ricans but it's cool you know in constants woo was also in this movie love her no as a great cast but I think the most surprising is goldfish here. That's a fucking nationals excited for for that. Yeah Goldfinch knives out one hundred percent. I thought I didn't love the trailer wasn't so you guys weren't surprised about the percent palm various. I didn't love the trailer at all. I thought it looked very corny. But can we start. At least we got a little bit more though but and these twitter heartaches like same thing would happen with Daesh Appel sticks and stones like zero percent. How could it be. It was like six reviews and say they were knives out. It was like seven and then Georgia Rabbit and then Grace Randolph said she didn't see the movie yet and she was upset. It's like you can't Dan joke about that kind of stuff seen the movie she was like there's something you just don't joke about glad to see people like seven reviews reviews. It's like all right. It's good to get excited about early reactions hundred percent twenty six. That's a decent number but when it's like under ten twenty six one hundred percent wait Joe Joe Joe Rabbits interesting though because a lot of the criticism seemed to be that it's a satire. That's the the universe in which it's taking place the fictionalized Nazi Germany is not dark enough enough for the satire to kind of work that it's almost too much fluff but they keep making fun of everything like okay like it was almost like a fun place to be executed right. Then of course you can call it looks like he was almost afraid to cross that line over into depicting Nazi Germany as actually Nazi Germany. It's almost like he was afraid of the backlash and now some of the backlashes backlashes become you didn't go far enough which is kind of crazy. I mean we have to see you with everything. If it's not executed right then that's worthy of criticism but look at data that Stalin come on yeah. Yeah funny should funniest movie I've seen last year and often very dark very funny and also I guess there was a lot of controversy about Ah Stalin as well but not to the scale because take about CD's become like star scholar Johann Stephen Merchant. You've got a lot of famous people in this. I wonder if people were thinking that maybe he kinda used used Nazi. Germany as a platform is definitely going to be some of that yeah. That's the thing it's my whole philosophy about jokes with Comedians as you can joke about anything but you have to do it so will you have to do it well. You're doing it at your own expense. If you make a joke about Nazi Germany and it comes off as really distasteful and offensive then you have to suffer the backlash clash but if you come out and make really like Larry David you know when he has. SNL stand up is opening monologue. He had some concentration camp joke so I thought they were really funny. Backlash the curve when he had the the guy had to prison tattoo and he thought he was a survivor yeah right that was just a lot of numbers or the the episode when they go to dinner her and the guy was on survivor. Not they have the concentration camp survivor with the contest from survivor competing in the middle of the night no snacks it was cold. It was cold no snacks as amazing using but yeah I mean that's that's the line that year. They kind of tone here and we'll we'll have to. I'm still excited for Joe to rabbit because I love Thai quasi. His home humor really hits for me. I love when this controversy with us because then against Nick Saad go see the movie Mississippi where you yeah. I like that too. I WANNA movies like especially. There's a difference between like fifty eight percent. Let's say where it's just like but when it's fifty percent but one half loves it nearly half hits. It gets me excited. That's like okay. There's something I need to see what I land and if it's fifty percent and everyone agrees like average and was probably gonNA speed average. I mean even though my my attitude. I'm always like a like I mean. I'm really care that much to go. See anything no yeah but I don't I don't have I don't have a side really you know where I would think. There's too offensive or or not but I'm conscious of it. You know right you understand where people are coming from your own perspective. Is you kind of just open minded yeah which is a word. I never thought I'd use to describe Teddy. That's that's actual your character. You've developed does a character. Did you say that's an actual word. I'm undecided. I take a an accurate accurate accurate description. Sam Open minded yeah. Let's move onto the next year. We have all these movies. Some of them are looking good. Some of them not so much but we have new news about the marvel show net flicks marvel what Beautiful Data Neighborhood Beautiful Day in the neighborhood getting positive that's. Tom Hanks Mr Rogers right. What's the conflict in that movie. Let's not caring enough Mister Rogers. I like the idea being Vietnam vet and they have to pull them back into action. I got the show on teaching the kids manners yeah next story. We have the Hawkeye miniseries coming out on Disney plus. We're not sure when it's coming out but apparently hailee. Steinfeld Feld has been is being I to play Kate Bishop who is kind of Hawkeye's successor. Hawkeye mentors this young woman to become the next talk. I and that's exciting. We should have governor is for this this. She loves Kate Bishop but Haley great actress. She's actually does everything since they've taken from. Sony is kind of like a Jeb a knife into Stony Tony. What do you mean. She played a she was that is true. She was Gwen Stacy. That's interesting kind of separate but we'll know we'll now. She's she cheat on well. See I sign a long term deal. No there was rumors that she would play a live action gwen stacy. I Sony well actually. I just made that up ten points. It's kind of like a it's a it's something that you'd WanNa see though like kind of work in live action multi-diverse so you can get miles morales on that would be interesting and the duo tom how the actor actor who voices Miles Morales I think would be good live Action Miles Morales. He was very good and dope but for this news I mean she's great yeah. She's in very good and bummbly true great. That was a while ago but she was fucking great in that too was actually perfect to excuse also in. She hit songs out right. I always say like when you could sing an act and all this too much too much for rest of us. Oh Jamie Foxx Doc Cooper Jennifer Lopez. Just who is the best at though it's Jay Justin Timberlake Jamie F- yeah Justin Timberlake so well Jamie Fox walks. That's the thing when you were asking. What do you consider j. Lo a musical artists or an actor. Jamie Fox is much much better actor and he's he makes good music. Ask her what he is really good actor but he did make blame it yeah. Bradley Cooper you could say now all of a sudden these things yeah that's good. I'll tell you one and done though he did. A singing is going to you know he might do like one of those animated. Sing alongs wait wait for his album drope. Coop Cookeville flew the coop ever the notes here what in Hawkeye play in the league if he can't miss ask questions spitball now you're sure the NBA as a lot more than the vendors are. Let's move onto the next story here. We have the new Camino. Ta wants to discuss overweight but are they going to kill off Hawkeye. Okay eventually thank you. She should get a better role. Well no TVS TV series well. I think that's what it's going to be. He grooms or throughout the TV series. Maybe he does at the end and then she he becomes Hawkeye for the the new avengers. That'd be awesome. I don't like what's going on moral. I I like this because I don't like Jeremy. Renner's ipod talk show even an endgame bad yeah. He likes so great when he's got the Mohawk and he's got tattoos. I didn't like his hairstyle but it doesn't work for Jeremy. Like you could get. I'd like another forty eight year old man to to pull that local off just not Jeremy Renner and he's a good actor. He's fine. He's good at a lot of things not to get out developer yeah yeah yeah. He's just not Hawkeye. I won't see him die though I haven't dialled age. Did you say you want okay die of old age forty eight these well Ted. We're moving onto the trailers anything else. What do you think about this. Did you watch the mutual fund raiser. Well I get. You can't say it looks when 'cause yells happening but it was well put together. Teaser was great great job teaser rewatch breaking bad revisited visited don not a season shift season season not. I wouldn't do seasons but I would do a series review. I think we can okay pretty much just said no like two weeks now but rather than this coming out. This is coming onto weeks. Hey Syria one. Does El Camino breaking bad story. Come out the homework. Thanks you said. What does she New Zealand from New Zealand Australia Australian the American Syria. Everyone has spice it up a little yeah but it was cool. It was a nice little compilation lesion and I just watched the entire series and my feelings on it have been stated greatest show of all time greatest of all time by Bryan Cranston. This Guy Jesse went to shit the opening scene. Oh my goodness you when you think about what happened to him. In season five he's there for like like half a year. They have him and he was just a slave what they did to him. When they killed Andrea yes seen a shot him in a car brock brown or brook forgot about Brooke won't fuck with this kid's mind only God yet from the from the very beginning when it started with when leading allowing Jane to die right in front of him and then also the way that he manipulated him with poisoning brock when he flipped it on gusts that was so brilliant. That's one of my favorite scenes when wall tiding out in the house. He's got all the blinds lines down. Jesse comes to see him kind of movie just to be Jesse. Doing cool. Things like go no baseball in the going through like a carnival just having fun store suggestion just sending enjoying himself a lot will. They always folk all while often candy on it. They always focus on him being a father figure to remember the a young boy in the crack house remember. He was kind of taking care of him. He was always interested in Beverly Fatherly Role Brock. Do you think this ends on a happy note notice Jesse Pinton story and happily ever after a cartel gets back involved. We were just talking. We were watching Joe Rogan interviewing bill. Burr remember bill Burr breaking bad the redhead who worked for soul with you'll bill Burr yeah that's built while he was in breaking bad yeah. I wonder if like he'll come back if somebody gets in contact with with because he's obviously got some connections you'll comes back could saw come back. I think so I think Sol's got to be in this. 'cause they keep. T- I when he talks to the market right now book it solves the first person that Jesse's well how many times would break bad were they in shit and they break into his office. They keep teasing in better because all they have those flash forwards yeah black on that too. I know I I stopped in the middle of Mike and I gotta start at the beginning. I got you remember anything. It's slow but maybe maybe on Ben Jewel. Pick up we two week. It's a very slow show but it's a different show from breaking bad. I'm excited for this. What about this faceoff. He soft reboot. Apparently they're developing reboot of the iconic Nicholas Cage John Travolta faceoff movie there was behind the scenes of them acting in that movie together and it was the most ridiculous dickey's thing I've ever seen in my life. That's a classic Nicholas Cage for four yeah. We're seeing face off. It's like the most ridiculous nineties movie that made sense in the nineties right. It's yeah it's a weird movie to reboot they. They switched their faces. So I think travolta low Aaron goes to describe the movie Ted Looking dead at me. Nicholas Nicholas Cage is the bad Guy Travolta's like an. FBI agent okay split the switch switches their faces so John Travolta is how bad guy it's it's signs and Nicholas Cage is the FBI agent okay but they're still but they're they're each other yeah. They are still the same but they put on the other person's percents face to infiltrate but okay. It's a I'm getting all right. Science doesn't work because that WANNA work versus but anyway yes the console in charge of all the Nicholas Cage but he's a bad guy and and it works because they have similar body types at the time you know but we were thinking if they got like Kevin Heart and the rock yeah. That'd be perfect all go real ridiculous. They'RE GONNA gas rock with Kevin Hart Fishery. Make this because it's just a stupid idea to Redo. But what if it's something ridiculous like that and they lean into it could be actually pretty entertaining because it's not like Michael. Is there a password or they say they're going to be rumor. You're okay and you know everyone's like people like this is like a classic. It's like can't believe they're remaking face. Oh yeah well people do that'll talent. It's like I can't believe they're remaking it. 'cause it's such a terrible no that point you should be able to believe that. Hollywood's remaking this like people like that right. That's funny funny. They switched their faces perfect. I'm not excited for this at all. It's rock and I don't think it's going to happen and but somehow maybe ladies like freaky Friday yeah but they you know like a curse you know like they both touch a pull a wishing bone at the same time or something like that. I WanNa know oh how room like this would start like who starts these rumors executives remaking facelift Jeff Snyder. You know the most important movie journalist of all time uh-huh and he releases it to the world. I pumped US well. We have a new story here about Apple TV streaming dropping November. I five dollars a month getting it. Probably you don't even know what's on. I have every streaming service to many many. SPN Plus Hulu Netflix. I'm will they should develop going package of some sort where you can get like all the streaming services in Maine viewing flip through the channels with the remote. It's cable cables the best. It's now everyone's just going to have all the Oh. It's not the best suckers horrible accident I gotTA Buy True Bill. I gotTA figure out what my money is. I'm paying for to subscription services right now yeah regal and AMC well. You're doing that to yourself. You just buy one will regal's closer because we have the the two theaters we usually go to. AFC's out of the way and it's AMC's a better APP go because it's better even though it's further away my both that is the first problem which unlimited move past the ANC is further away but it's better reveals a better popcorn. Did you see the trailer for this new Jason Momoa show on Apple TV. No it looks stupid. Well all the line Alan screen up of all the things that are coming out I think in their moral or something and I had no idea what any of these are Oh. I saw Jason Momoa like Oh. That's cool. He's like a bird box thing. It's funny how late to the game apple was which streaming because they're the ones who started items you know they could be seen as the it kind of the first company that I tuned TV. Wow that's that's could've. That's what they could have done yet. Now's Yeah Apple TV. It's it's funny. They were like I like that I actually find that flicks for Apple. They always do that. When they dropped their streaming for music it was of course it was. It's cheaper than spotify 'cause like thirty cents for unlimited music. That's yeah that's what I would do. Phones Apple. You know just make everything five dollars a month until you beat the competition ever pretty much watches like Jason. MOMOA has a son has a baby his tribe. I guess but everyone everyone in the world is blind but the babies have site like faulk. The people are GonNa want. You did that movie. No justice show never GONNA be. I'll tell you what much like going to war and stuff and like how how is this working. He probably sold it better than the trailer does. SA- trailer the way that they dramatize it. They're like this is a gift or Kurtz. Oh my God I'm just GonNa stick with the with my android phone trailers. God gave Adam and Eve site to punish them so that's that's true. They were just running around butt naked right now. They didn't know they had site but decided no. They had side. They could see the but they became aware of the data for a Bible revisited. God sent the serpent and he yeah he was fruits. Look it was the devil. Yeah book cost sent them in to find the see. If there was a double agent you didn't you bet that God recently came out and said I sent the serpent and then the Adam and eve genus. They were naked. They ate the fruit and then they were like then they could. Let's see what was the whole point of eating the fruit like what did Satan Cezanne Eat. The fruit is the tree of knowledge. He said God's holding out. He's got all this. He's got that's gods got his porn stash on bond the tree. He's taking bite yeah I of course that's that's the curse of the curiosity.

I don't know probably not because I do do a joke movie. Next year. Push Batman back a year. Yeah it looks like the the time line so matchup because Thomas Wayne is in this movie and it looks like he does interact with a young Bruce Wayne that would have been cool because they could have sat Robert Pattinson Batman in that same time period because I think it's the eighties is what they're going for. So that would have been interesting interesting to see like a one thousand nine hundred Batman you might know but I never I never knew the lore with the joker with like as he around like is this a joker established. I wished Gotham went. Batman comes about no no the the joker comes after it's very early in Batmans career the origin the one that everybody is kind of accepts as the jokers origin is it's like rookie Batman.

You'd find out how you can help us and access how exclusive competitions for supporters alrighty. Let's get straight into it with Joe Joe Rabbit the latest film from Tyco. It just checked out this World War Two satire. So does this comedy go off with a bang. Bang young as hard. You're influenced by the wrong things the right things and what's worse you're unable to tell the difference between the two for ten year old wannabe Nazi judger. It's his dream to serve his era so much. So that Adolf Hitler just happens to be his best friend his imaginary best friend but when JOE DISCOVERS ELSA a seventeen year old Jew living in his wall while outside the German armies losing and the end of the war is inevitable. Everything Jojoy thought he knew is now a skew. Black is white up his DAN and Jews. A beautiful without horns and mind control powers will be involved in such activities as four games. Bush techniques Zim stuff. I don't think I can do this. Of course you can edge. I had an imaginary friend coming in so much trouble. It's time to do you. No shoes comes needed show. This might towers you know if you saw one. They look just like us. Hi You know. Tell you see acute from gay filmmaker TYCO ITT who also brought us to the world of people what we do in the shadows and thor ragnarok comes Joe Joe. Rabbits the brilliantly funny hot woman and deeply satirical film inspiring hope starring a most fabulous disgusting. The gifted cost of Young Actors Academy Award Misano Rockwell. Ozzy favorite rebel Wilson and one of scarlet your head since finest performances in LAS two weeks. Giving it five stars. It was brilliant to watch this film although I am bias because I am massively tightwad. Td Fan preach preach. I was discussing this with someone today. A really nice thing he manages to do is make sad things funny. Yeah he did up with boy as well about familial issues and I think one thing is whilst we laughing were also wondering why men. That's the kind of punch pot of film so yeah just sitting there and yes it's soak Funny and he makes light of the Holocaust is part of the satirical tone of the film but then at the same time it packs a punch where it makes you think in some elements which I think is the greatest power of the film yet. Almost release films contained in some way or another grave and he does manage to turn that incredibly sad moment in any person's life sorry hysterically funny but not in a really not so much you feel guilty about it. You're actually relieved to have a laugh at something. That's so horrible. And I mentioned this in my own review as well. He directs children so perfectly and beautifully and he manages to inspire these incredible performances. I know I'm sure a lot of it has to go with his costing directors and his ability to Cherry. Pick these incredible children. The Star of this film is complete unknowing. This is his first film and he also brought US Julian Denison in hunt for the wealthy people. And he's just. He is such a brilliant direct up but he has this incredible gift for directing children. And I think it's because if anyone saying him on social media or an interview with him he so child himself and I think he connects with them that way because he's just all. I cannot get overhead talented. This man is every time someone mentions his name. I just get so excited. I will literally say do anything except the mandatory because I don't give a spat that thought and the screenwriting was just so tight like that which just outstanding from like fine details Huma landing where it needed to land to also sad bateson getting as we could think about a little bit. Everything in that film is just nails from things needing to be when they needed to be rust on the stand elements contextual elements historical elements with all of it. And I think the really nice thing as well as he's management one Kiwi tone in humor into it as well. Which going into America's really big thing just so quickly but they might be some say controversial aspects to this film. Is there anything that kind of feels like steps over the line at all? No no right. That's what scientific debate this film and Yes. A lot of people might be going. Oh my God it's funny it's World War Two it's Holocaust and Taika himself. Plays George Imaginary. Eto La but you also have to understand. It's all coming from good place. Talking himself is Jewish yes. He's married as K. Ks He he's actually. He is Jewish himself. So it's all coming from a good place. It's all coming from a comedic place. I know we live in a time. Where comedy is these days seen a little bit controversial. I think it needs to be untouched. I think when it comes to Jerry comes to comedian or anything make if it's coming from the right place. It sort of needs to be left alone when it comes to this sort of censorship having said that none of this. I didn't feel any of this was controversial at all. It's so hard to explain just. Ytd's just incredible knack for lightning doc moments in life but he yet this film. I like I said I gave it five stars films. Perfect in my eyes With that in mind Gioja Rabbit is in cinemas on boxing day and check out my full review at make the switch dot com dot. Au also hitting cinemas portrait of lady on fire and you check out this picture. Perfect film at the Melbourne International Film Festival and filed. This review switch cost in Eighteenth Century. France artist Marianne played by Wim alone is given the unusual commission of painting a portrait of Halloween. He's played by Adele Haenel but without her subjects awareness of the tusk to do this Marianne poses as Louise's new walking companion but soon the relationship of oddest and unsuspecting news blossoms into something far richer and follow passionate from beloved french-directed. Selene Schema portability on fire is one of the truly great films of our time one. That almost defies description. It is a face for the senses and for the heart built around one of the most exquisitely constructed romances in cinema history. It's passionate deep. It's ostry is staggering. Its power is breathtaking both Milan and Haenel exquisite and the cinematography from Klamath on has to be seen to be believed. The depths of a woman's heart are impossible to jot and the world through their is in. Love is a wonder selene. Scam has delivered a Miracle Film. It left me breathless speechless. Sobbing and in Awe Portugal lady on fire is easily one of the best films of the Five Stars to say that portrait of a lady on fire defies. Any kind of description is so appropriate because coming out of that film. My eyes were wet. I could not speak and it really is truly one of the best films of the year. Two five star films in a row. I think Audi ince's spoilt for choice. This boxing day so fantastic boxing but can I also just say a job as a walking companion? Does this still exist and can I have is that? Is that really a thing? Please email contact at make. The SWITCH DOT com. Today you get into this but I suspect it's not okay but seriously if you've seen the trailer for this obviously it's a really beautiful at a motive trailer but it doesn't really go away much of the story. I mean actually does. The trailer actually captured the same tone as the film actually gives off well. It's funny that you ask that because going into this film I had wanted to leave as little seen as absolutely possible. Unfortunately yeah unfortunately I did actually see a trial prior to my going in and over it did give away a few points. I still thought more intrigued than ever more excited than ever to go into this film. And ultimately it didn't around my experience at all having some sort of ideas to what I was getting into a few of the shots in the trailer absolutely exquisite and to say them in the context of the film makes it even more special by. It's not to the point where the best moments ruined in the trail at as is a common theme in today's trail. Feel and I guess it's probably also important to touch on the fact that this is one of many recent great. Lgbt plus films that we've had hitting cinemas it's been a real fantastic smorgasbord of a variety that we've actually had an offer and it's great to see a kind of female oriented version of that now. It's a really is an it never really plays into any exploitative aspects of their romance it really just feels like this is a romance speaking to universal themes of remembering someone and how Alberta impacts you. It just happens to be between two women though. That's beautiful and you can also find. Daniel's full review at the switch dot com today you and make sure you check out portrait of a lady on fire when it hits the big screen on boxing day also heading to cinemas is Jumanji the next level lily. Grab the control is an jumped headfirst into the sequel soap. Is this follow up? A one shot kill or is it game. Over for the franchise. Giamatti next level focuses on the original team and Spence's grand follow Danny Devito and his friend. Meyler Danny Glover getting sucked back into the game after Realizing Spencer. Missing the film plays with the humor of two elderly patrons playing in a video game much fame of the last one. The team must complete a quest in order to return home we have by sponsor and Bethany even more challenging this time not all work as the game. Thoughts might need some help. Where Bethany Straight here? Oh my God like I'm a total horse. Yep that's BEVAQUA. Hey this many place to its purpose which is to entertain how fun characters offer fresh story without straying from the film's original framework. Well was a little disappointing with the laziness of the writing at times. A story lost momentum in the narrative was put on hold for unnecessary. Jokes was found in the first woman. She was the suspense created by Unpredictable. And motivated debts. Jumanji next level had too many relevant deaths in game clues that with thaw loosely tied in altogether that the film is entertaining. Vaughn and slightly predictable. It wasn't as good as the best but did well. As a sequel I give it two point. Five stars hundred percent agree with everything. Lily just said we actually sorry together. I didn't we Lille's to Sam's Kris which reunion four of which getting together for one special film. It was having said that yet. Lilley was right. It was slow it does too much fluff in end one of the things. He's a lot of the comedy. In this film is derived from Dundee Beta and denny gloves characters being old and not understanding video games and ET CETERA. And once they enter the game that carries on so the huma comes from them being annoying to the other characters in the film. The problem is that jerk gets old really quickly and then they stop being annoying to the audience. Whoa WHOA WHOA. Now hold on a second resume say on the pod. Come at me. Count them having also see this. Yes okay. Maybe the joke does get used a bid repetitiously had maybe it's get- does get a bit old by the bought. What is fantastic about this was with the first film is actually seeing people like Jack. Black and Kevin hough and Karen Gillan dwayne Johnson going in and getting to do all these crazy cargo. Actually one of the best things that happens is ACA FINA. Who is the new character in the in? This part of the franchise is playing as if she's actually being controlled by Danny Devito and it is freaking hilarious. I think it's Great Akwa Fana- pretending to be dining. Devito is the one thing I never knew I needed in life. Son nothing else is grateful for this sequel just for that because I was I think it's a great entertaining. Not Rain Fun enjoyable film. You're going to go in you gonNA lawf- you're gonNA come out and you're GONNA forget about it entirely. It's really great way to spend like two hours of Utah to as like a family adventure makes. I think we're always gonNA need those movies. You GotTa take in somewhere family off. I just felt like like the game elements. You went focused on a law. So that challenges. What they needed to overcome this like a ride is kind of slapped in a few God movements that they will like. We're just going to make this happen. Can go on. There was no real kind of explanation. No clues that really made sense a little bit. Hollow Policemen Exposition Listen here but you can buy my full review. Ethnic SWITCH DOT COM dot. Au entymology next. Level is incentives from boxing day. You can also catch cats on the big screen. The much talked about adaptation of the Andrew. Lloyd Webber musical by Tom. Who So is it the cat's meow or does it deserve to end up in the kitty litter box. Chris it the red carpet at the Sydney launch screening. And this review for switch cost when Veronica is starting out by her own. She's whisked away by tribe of Catechal. Gels they are making the jellicoe choice to decide who will come back to a new live. Tonight is a magic on where I choose. The cat deserves a new life. Going to the wall could get dangerous commodity. I get a cat by soul simply put Tom. This cats fails it fails as an event movie a musical and an adaption. We can sit here and make fun of the CGI but as it is. The film is just so boring. There's not an interesting song. Dance NUMBER CHARACTER. Offering cats is billing itself on its big cost and surprise surprise. They are always did it. Just Elvis trying the hottest but it's just pointless with the material Judi dench sleepwalking. Away through older McCallum is on trying to be a cat is still lead entails disappearance seems like a lake to get her fans to look Tom. Hooper is a terrible director of musicals. He lacks creative. Burning these buddy with every dance number stilted and static. I'll just wait until in the Heintz comes out to enjoy a Hollywood musical one and a half stars. Okay Sir just to be clear. None of us on this podcast have seen cats yet. Am I correct correct nor will I ever say stuff that then how about we get thoughts from what we saw from the trailer because what I saw? Was something horrifying and plastic. I don't know about you guys. The much discussed effect the go one in that trae leaf ex like Taylor swift in possibly high bosom kept bosom like it's did she's choking on them. I don't that was what I does not take away from the trailer. Like I don't understand this so so Whole new meaning to catnip. Clean all my God There is there's not enough money in the world to get me to see this horrifying looking film. I've learned in my adult with that. I really hate Andrew Lloyd Webber and feel. I and I don't like that with the uppermost united together to I saw cats as an adult. I had no idea what it was going in. It was the longest exactly there is no plot. It's literally just cats singing human sized with no purpose. It's I was dead. It's the worst story anyway to do what to say that even though the design of these is absolutely horrifying. That's not the result of the visual office. They've done pretty quick managing to make it. Look keener somewhat detailed. It's just the design of these characters. Looks Oval. I mean if you're going to have the ability to make cats look cats. Why not make them look like cats? I get it different and Hotta to make it a human look like a cat on stage if you have the opportunity and the means to make them actually cats why not make them actual cats. Maybe they needed to talk to Disney about that. Oh good dance and stuff. You can't have actual cats. That would do that. Would've looked v. you know what it would have been a perfect opportunity for them to Shahr what Disney had a do animated animals right because the lion king ulcer horrifying. But that's going too far the other way street fighter realistic whereas cats the other way where it just looks awful. I'm sure we can find a beautiful middle ground but just no one's found it yet. I guess the other. Oh onto this is also bringing in Tom. Hooper. This is not the first time. He's directed a musical screen adaptation. There are some people who would say that Lamy's was not necessarily the best production and That Maybe this should never have happened then. I may be Daniel if you're familiar with Daniel's feelings on Tom Hooper if not. It's a known secretive. Loathing does give you a good idea of what this may be like. But you can make the decision to catch. Cats yourself on the big screen from boxing day. And be sure to check out Chris's full review at make the switch dot com.

You can find my review at make the switch dot com dot. Au sorry we missed. You is an Australian cinemas from boxing day. I'll have missed that voice. Yes a massive. Thanks to Jake that review also eating cinemas is the truth actually investigated this family feud but can we handle it. Their relationship between Auburn family has been studied extensively over films in recent years. And he are Korea's latest film. The truth is another entry into the Canon starring French cinematic icon Catherine Deneuve as Fabio. The truth sent his on the conflict newly released memoirs of Haddad. Lamia played by Juliette Binoche. It seems that these men was a missing bottle moments and truths from Lumiere remembers as a tumultuous upbringing with a mother so absorbed in her art in Korea even Hook Ulcer Stars as finishes husband a television actor failing upwards. It's a real shame that with so much talent birth in front and behind the camera the truth just feels so bland. The subject matter is compelling in shotton acted well but this new idea and ultimately it goes down in such a way that leaves the audiences unmoved unimpressed. I'm grateful for the opportunity to save these three actors on screen with each other. The truth left me. Wishing that the material that brought them there was a bit more compelling two and a half stalls so I haven't actually seen the truth but I did have disappointing experience away at this year because I watched Kathleen denudes in Cleveland and similar sort of saying it checks like a meme laws and old age and what that meant her and her daughter came and it was a relationship with daughter and going through the remnants that house and whatnot but it was just so boring and the plot. One Minute. We're going through this poll ladies outlook and the next minute. We'RE GONNA RANDOM FRENCH FE. She's playing on bumper cars and there's a priest performing an exorcism and which is no answers anywhere assortment of event. I really director of what has gone wrong. Because it's there and it's interesting it's just presented in such a manner that just I just sat there not being moved by anything. I really don't think it was the direction because Creator is incredible director. He directed shoplifters loss. Jia won the Palm Joel which is incredible stick fantastic movie and also about family and their values but I think maybe this is his first non-japanese film is another language. Insulza. French and I don't know if he's cinematic. Language translates well to French. That's really the only thing that I think of. That may be causing this lack of popping off the screen. But it's just a real shame because I was going in super excited for ahead really heard much about it which maybe should have been my warning but the cost is great. This interesting content here and Dave is fantastic. It just didn't feel like anything was happening here that I was ever going to remember. Oh one to recommend someone you also mentioned in your online review that a lot of the costs gets under utilized and just kind of gets pushed aside and I mean that's probably a scripting problem but it seems like such a waste of great talent here yet and I understand giving new spotlight is probably the biggest thing here because it's her story but I feel like to Cuss Juliet. Vanish with Catherine Deneuve together. It just feels like they should be fireworks explosions To really beloved French actresses and this is the first time they've ever worked together. I just wish that there was something a little bit more for them. Maybe a big argument or something. They do have a few but they do but heads a little bit but it never really amounts to anything beyond dishing dirt. I really wanted to be a whole heap of gossip. Juicy scandals he had bought. It really came down to just jealousy and self obsession which didn't really do much for me. Shame shame the truth is in cinemas from boxing day and check out my four review at the switch dot com. Today you as twenty nineteen comes to an end. It means one very exciting thing. Award season is to the stood Cohen. But along with that comes controversies and problems. The Golden Glove. Nominations inspired a lot of confused. Looks especially for the lack of females in the directing category for the second year in a row. Ladies go now. This is a really interesting topic because even beyond just discussing famous in film here has been such alerted ye off female directors. I mean we've had Greta Gerwig direct little women. We've had portrait of a lady on file book smart a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood Hustler. Honey boy and also the farewell Ole racking up major attention major awards buzz and yet. They just not hear what happened. Nature's the good ones that the films to does. Just let's sorry. Elizabeth Bank his questions as my question though. I don't WanNa see a woman in this category just for argument's sake and played lip service. What would what they're competing? It's tier is Tarintino. Scorsese was Haruf Phillips and Mendez so my question is like if you could. Who would you replace in the directing category at the site? The Golden Globes turned Phillips for Jerky needs to Gar- taunt Phillips for Jerry Lewis to Gar vehicle and replaced with probably Lulu for the foul to be honest. I mean I'm not as amid with the farewells. Everyone else sees. But it's such a stunning film. And it's obviously a very personal story is based on a true story about her grandma and I'm actually coming from someone who likes Jirka. I'm very much I didn't love. It didn't hate it. I like it and I could appreciate a foot. It is but to get it. I feel like it's almost insulting for him to get a Golden Globe nomination when he's basically ripping off every good months says he picked. Shaw I mean obviously imitation is flattery but why not just on the president. He's doing good work in the first place and inspiring everyone else and put someone else in that actually deserves to be there. No Offense Talk Phillips as well is the executive is mainly made up of old males and I think what I struggle with. Is We have things in these films that resonate with women and they're not obviously going to resonate with the board for different reasons. And that's where I get a little bit stock as women film directors. I think are going to be on the backbone or a little bit with people whether they do good work done also on the awards front critical. Darling parasite got a nod at the SAG awards for best excuse the first time. An international film has entered the category in twenty one years lost time. Being a life is beautiful so with that. What do we think is it? Just the sags not recognizing international films or international films getting better and therefore they're getting more recognition. How our feeling well? Let's stop by addressing the most important thing. I just this week finally got around to seeing parasite I know of bad bad charlie. But you've gotTa Watch this film and just absolutely fall in love with this cost. Gels Ho will together and like what what is being compiled onto screen. I mean both the family themselves as well as the puck family. Who they're working for. I just disappear the end. They just have so much fun but levied Abella Life is beautiful is one of those films which was fantastic internationally. Recognized voted his. I struggled to believe there has been another international film in that time period. Twenty one years. The doesn't also deserve that recognition even for nomination and our and it's actually had never happens again. It is kind of exciting to me to think that Sh- pray tell if it happened again in twenty one years time we're GONNA be talking about parasite lock the masterpiece. It is and seeing heartfully laid the way for many other foreign films to be recognized and awarded because I do think it's coming from an ignorance thing but it would be really nice if parasites one that really opens up the door for amazing earned films to be recognized not just on Sun Bowl and acting bud across the board. I think it's about time that we started giving recognition to films walled wide. It shouldn't be something that's necessarily growing from Hollywood. That makes it good or the best. You know it shouldn't be categorized like that. We should be at this point having a much more open and and welcoming view of international cinema. It's no longer just off house films. That's for sure Yeah that's true. One of the most exciting things happen on the entertainment front two thousand nineteen is the launch of Disney plus the new streaming service is packed with film and TB old new but Disney has copped a bit of flux after it was discovered sutton on savory pots of movies but should distribute his allowed to rewrite. History absolutely nauseous. This see our. This is censorship hundred percent. No question about it. This is censored censorship. I realized we live in very tricky times at the moment and especially when it comes to Disney plus looking at a an audience of children and Disney don't want to admit that they made mistakes in the past or in the future when present You know at the at the time these jokes. The one that comes to my mind is one of the fake bloopers at the end of toy story two West and keep eight is basically costing costing catch a couple. Bobby's at the time that was saying that was supposed to be purely comedic and now with a is of twenty nineteen not so much but yet you cannot erase the past. You cannot rewrite history and you cannot send yourselves yes? These things are going to be watched by children and they're going to say them and possibly possibly grow up thinking that these things are normal. But that's where we have to come in today and say yes you saw this jerk and yes but today it's not writing you know. Grow up learning the right things and you know knowing that that thirty second bit at the end of Toy story two was just that a bit. That was done ten fifteen years ago. Because wouldn't it be wonderful if parents actually parented and sat down with kids and said? Oh this is what used to be the case and that's not appropriate because of this wouldn't be an interesting way to look at this and the weed pot is it's rerun in history like it's canceled coach. Show we grew up looking at that. Nykanen be translated know. Mike is the next generation. I WANNA be able to pass on what I saw Warren. Have that go on sale at Disney. Actually pull this out and so now doesn't exist. I mean at the end of the day. It's kind of like them going through particular films which seems to be the trend at the moment and like a racing cigarettes from every single like frame by frame and will it really make people take up smoking. If they're seeing cigarettes smoked onscreen potentially it's an influence but most unlikely. I think it's the same here you know. You see something unscreened. That's racially inappropriate or sexist. If you've been educated properly you're not going to say oh arcade. That's the norm. Then you can say oh no. That doesn't sit well with me. No that doesn't feel rise. Lana Charlie I was sick. Sin decided that I was going to be a change. Mike Relative L. wouldn't stop. You must kill dogs to then what else I can sends me about. This is the fact that Disney have pretty much dominated the cineplex the moment they are constantly edging out of competition by buying more screens. That would rather put anything else in another cinema. If it meant that universal all certainty or anyone else was using that screen to screen films so I feel like if Disney is so intent on controlling the feature of cinema. It's even more considering that they're going back and retroactively changing the past and they wanNA control every element that which is it's Sterry that's That's what we talk about a global monopoly that Saddam finish of it. The thing is children Sponges in order to learn what's right. They need to learn what was once wrong. And if you take away their ability to learn what was once wrong then never gonNA learn. What's Rush? We'll sit just thinking well on the plus side. See what I did the. We have some great giveaways up for grabs this week. Thus stop way giving away five family poces to see Jumanji the next level in cinemas. The gang is back but the game has changed as they returned to Jumanji to rescue one of their own.

Sorry we missed you in cinemas from legendary director Ken Loach. The film tells the story of Ricky and his family who have been fighting an uphill struggle against dead since the two thousand financial crash and opportunity to wrestle back. Some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self employed delivery driver. It's hard work and his wants job as a camera is no easier. The family unit is strong but when Botha pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point. I last but not least. We're giving away five.

Today you forward slash comps now and before we go. We'd like to offer you some cinematic inspiration with each of us suggesting one film that you should see this week and why for me. It's film from at Twenty eight eighteen. It was something that came out towards the end of the year and I felt was echoed swept under the carpet. It has Melissa McCarthy in a role which I am very much in a love hate relationship with Melissa McCarthy but this is I think her greatest role of all time. It also has a regan kind like to say as it also has a really awesome performance from Richard E grind. It is based on a true story which I mean couldn't be Crazier if you try to dream it up yourself it is. Can you ever forgive me and honestly I cannot believe that Melissa McCarthy made it through these award season without much much more accolade than than she got because it is nothing nation. Insulin no but gee that's literally about it and the film itself is absolutely fantastic. She is a much much more recognition than she got for. But I really really love. Can you ever forgive me? If you haven't seen it? I really employees check it out. It's also fascinating to think Melissa's role was originally supposed to be played by Julianne Moore. And then she got fired from the role and obviously these two actress says while both fantastic. Us opposite from another. Yes yeah had held us. Melissa McCarthy manages to steal a role not so much steel you know boy would have been very different film but Melissa did get it obviously in the end and she did. She didn't incredible job and again. The story is you know you can't make this shit up. Well that's good that you agreed jess and now it's your turn to give us your film. What would it be? I'm staying on message here with my You Know Judge Rabbit Review From Elliot. Film came out this year and it was. It was a documentary that was played at the Jewish International Film Festival. It is about an actor who has sadly passed. You know you grow up loving actors and actresses to certain degrees but this is about a certain act that actually had a massive impact on me when he passed because it was so tragic and so unnecessary and one of the most incredible things about this documentary is that actresses Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence actually credit him with turning them into the act as they are today which is an incredible accolade. It's cold love and Toshiba. And it is about the dearly departed actor Antonio Chen. It was created with his parents. And I'm getting emotional just thinking about it actually sort as well. The depths of this man's talent and passion for the arts is unparalleled. And you just you truly discover how talented he was. And how deep it goes. And it's also amazing saying people like J.J. Abrams and Chris Evans. And Zachary Quinto talk about the impact. He had on their lives. And you genuinely say them. Get angry at the camera and you know just life in the circumstances in general when they talk about his passing it is incredibly emotional film it is also so inspiring and just beautiful and so full of love and if anyone can track it down. I believe it's one chains and Youtube Banal. It's called love and tertia a really good recommendation. There a great actor and a great tribute to that access. So Ashley.

An Oscar or does not win. I'M GONNA town my hair out. It's a really interesting take on something. That has been documented through film. But I don't think it's been done in this way before and even though I'm not actually a child of divorce or have never seen anyone go through a divorce. It really hit me in a place where I'm surprised that it date and I'm recommending marriage story to everyone if you haven't already seen it please go and see. It is incredible. You can watch it in your living room. It's on your net flicks. You have no excuse. It's phenomenal and I'm so lucky that I got to review it because as soon as I got at Mike.

Ep. 843 - Democrat Civil War

"The news media is tremendously Unhappy About Donald Trump's acquittal in the senate on charges he did something or other that was very bad for some reason at the Washington Post where democracy she dies and darkness after post editors. Throw it downstairs where post reporters kick it until it stops. Moving editorialist waxed eloquent on the tragic consequences that will follow trump's acquittal as surely as Ted Knight Follows Doris Day Post editorialised Nimrod Blankley wrote quote after Bill Clinton was impeached. He apologized legitimized for committing adultery than perjury then lying about committing adultery then perjury than letting bin Laden get away because he was so busy committing adultery than perjury than line line about it but not once as Donald Trump apologized for any of those things proving. He's a much worse person than that Democrat president. We all remember so fondly because he helped create an economy almost half as good as this one unquote at the New York Times Former newspaper editor and chief blithering prevarication. The third wrote quote once a president can do whatever trump is accused of doing with impunity. We are living in Nazi Germany. I myself being carted away to what would be a concentration camp. Can't if it didn't have stuffed armchairs an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon and happened to be my apartment quote at CNN anchorwoman shapely Nick. Put on honor very serious face in order to deliver very serious opinion to the CNN audience. Who is running to catch his connection to Wichita mic said quote who told the Democrats they should go off half cocked and impeach trump without even charging him with a real crime? Okay it was me but why did they listen. I mean look at me. Do you think I got this job. Because my brains means don't be absurd unquote. Many commentators feel trump's acquittal will cause even more deaths than global warming which they say is surely going to destroy the planet in five years ago trick warning. I'm Andrew Klavan and this is the Andrew Klavan. Show it just to give you also say he's so wonderful wonderful to see Ya. Aw All right. Yesterday I began by saying that never trumpers were wrong when they complained that donald trump lowered the tone of Americans America's political discourse. It was the media who did that news and entertainment media. They insisted on portraying America and American values as racist and hateful. Leaving Democrat. Politicians is free to smile and be polite while they're enemies Americans were demonized for them. Trump was elected because he was a not very nice man who had take the media slings and arrows news and fight back but never trumpers insists that trump's lack of niceness is nastiness tars all of us who support him never trump evangelical local. David French has a new essay in which he says. Christians are supposed to love their enemies. And it's wrong for them to hire someone namely trump to hate their enemies for them but with respected. David may have nothing but respect and fondness for the guy. This isn't a personal attacks just about ideas. I don't understand this line of reasoning. Other men can't live out my faith for me. I'm not diminished by other men's spiritual failures after all I would vote for Jew or an atheist for president if he had the right policy. So David I imagine Jews. Atheists aren't scripturally commanded to love their enemies and whether they do or not is none of my business same with Donald Trump. He's not a Christian guy. I said this a long time ago. Trump is our first. I post Christian president because he openly denigrates people for being unsuccessful he elevates winning and wealth over morality. That's not Christianity only over time time has trump learned even pay lip service to Christian values. And when he does it he doesn't do it exactly perfectly his attacks on his opponents at last week's prayer breakfast for instance were inappropriate. Grit and uncalled-for. I've been to the prayer breakfast a couple of times and that is just not the way it's supposed to go but part of Christianity is doing things according to their purposes their pillows. That's why many Christians disapprove of homosexuality. Why Catholics does approve of birth control? They feel sex should be used according to its t lows of procreation what trump is doing is politics. The kilos of American politics is I see. It is to secure our God given rights and to keep the nation safe and prosperous as possible trump's not my king and he's not my dad he's an executive he runs stuff and he's doing a good job to repeat what I said yesterday. We mustn't let the left. And it's media or even our friends in never trump camp. We mustn't let them put Republican actions in the context of celestial more warfare while allowing the Democrats to do politics politically. That's a recipe for for utter failure and to me. It doesn't even work morally in a Christian sense it's just politics. Politics has appointed has a T. Lo's trump so far has served that teals Hill ultimately have to answer for the state of his soul. Like all of us but not to me. We're GONNA talk about all of this especially politics. And what's going on in the New Hampshire primary. which is today what's happening to the Democrat Party in the big sense? We'll also talk about sex and conspiracy theories so that should be weird but meanwhile let's let's talk about falling asleep you know. I've only heard rumors about what it's like to fall asleep and I know some people do it but they have a hard time doing it. I just never do it so it doesn't bother me but if you have a hard time doing it I am very opposed to taking drugs.

So it's not just us this thing that's happening Where we you start to hold ourselves to this religious standard? I think this there's a lot of hysteria happening right now on the left. The Democrat Party is having a civil war the last civil war they lost and and they lost all their slaves. This war is is really just between them because they having a crisis of vision a crisis vision and a lot of this crisis division is because they can't tell the difference because of the media because they've been living within their entertainment and news media they can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality you know the Oscars we talked about the the Oscar the Oscars bombed nobody was watching it lowest ratings. Ever because who wants to hear these rich elitist lecture us about our morality one of the people who won an Oscar Oscar was Tyco what TV I think is pronounced td. Who made that Jo Jo Dancer? which is Joe Rabbits are Do Rabbit which was a comedy about the Nazis and and it's funny but as soon essentially shallow film. It's kind of puts talks about the evil of the Nazis in the shallow way this now the basic standard way of the left but he won mm for his script of the of the movie which was a good one. And here's what he had to say making. The film was in response to a resurgence of hate and intolerance and hate speech and is the end of the war is a very clear rule. If you're the Nazi you into jail now rules a change. But if you're a Nazi feel free to have a rally down in the town square you're GonNa buy we. We might so some something's change. Something's not right and we have forgotten the rules. I guess and so I feel that this is the perfect time for a film like this and I feel like the phones become more important and more relevant today which is a sad thing but also good for me. That's not the reason we need communism. So so here's this guy talking about nazi-ism I'm today as opposed to Nazism during the war. Now remember the Nazis in the war committed crimes against humanity. They wiped out six milk. Really more than six million of their own people for racist reasons. They shoveled people to gas chambers. They cause a war that killed over sixty million people worldwide and so there were arrested afterwards for having done these things things to the human race. What are you arresting a guy who was nasty opinions that you disagree with four now nothing? He's still living in that world. He's an imaginative guy. He's a writer director and actor you. You know he's an artist and he's living in his imagination. Once you start to do that you start to react to imaginary things and that is the problem that the left has it is the thing that John Trump is good at. He's good at breaking through to the NUB of the matter the reality of the matter but the left is now stock is now stuck with its imaginative world in which is always a crisis and they're always always fighting the Nazis and is giving them a really really hard time New Hampshire. It's basically the problem they have is. Joe Biden is let leaving leaving New Hampshire. The voting is now he left to go to South Carolina to plead the black people to vote for please. Black people save my campaign please. He said he's still. He still mildly hopeful. Remember remember Barack Obama was hope and change. This is like mildly hopeful. You know maybe they'll be some change. I don't know so he's left so he it really is not looking for. He's not looking at a at a good results looking to come in probably V. I would think it's Bernie. Who is burning up? The place People Buddha judge as has an edge in the latest polls New Hampshire where they make their decisions really late traditionally. So it's hard to get any polling on and And Amy Klobuchar which ours. I told you she's seems to be climbing. She's getting a lot of enthusiasm. Peaks people went like ooh someone who's not a socialist. That would be fun and yet this is the division in the party. The division in the party is coming remember because the pressures from the party. Don't just come from the candidates. They don't just grow out of the candidates. The candidates are reacting to the press to their base to the people who are supporting warning them so here are the two sides of the party. Let's take a look first at Michael Moore that Absolute icon of health and and goodwill now looks take Ganic. Silly looks like Java the Hut. That's what he looks like and he just looks so unhappy all the time and so unhealthy but anyway here. He is giving his opinion of what he's Bernie supporter. Why the party has to step up burning? They have a moral responsibility to make sure that we remove trump and I am starting to detect from some of these. DNC types that it's actually more important that they save their their old corrupt system full of hats. That's more important to them. Getting rid of trump anybody who puts anything ahead of when when Hillary says that She doesn't know if she can endorse the candidate. Meaning Bernie. Then you've just told me something about yourself and it's pretty pretty rotten and pretty scary that it would actually be better to have trump then then Bernie. That's exactly what she said. She didn't say those words. But that's what Biden said when he said he didn't know if he could commit to endorsing Birdie and on and on and on and that's another whole segment of the Democratic Party hack establishment is backing Bloomberg. He's now they're great white hope because Biden Listen doing so well. They thought Pete me the but I don't think that's going to go very well know Jack. There's Michael Moore you know putting forward vision. The vision is we must be trump in the only person who can beat me. It's not the old hawks these old hacks ax what they know. They're all they're just. It's just the establishment we need. A Revolution Bernie is the guy who can do the thing that we need done. Okay so it's it's a revolutionary idea and Michael Moore lives in his imagination where Castro's great with Cuba has good healthcare. I mean this is a guy who lives in this world that he made up. He's just like Bernie Bernie and he both live in this world world where socialism is a great idea. Lie Dr Face Phony soldiers. It's not it's not. Our world is not the real world but that's where they live and he wants that guy. Now talking about old hacks here's James Carville and old hack. Who did everything? He could to demonize the women who came forward about The way Bill Clinton mistreating them. But he's in a panic. He is in a panic. He says we need the Democrats crafts to save America. America is on the brink of extinction. We need the Democrats in these guys are nominating Bernie on the on the road nominee Bernie who cannot possibly win I scared gave to death I really am and I think people got to go you know and I am waiting hoped. He's African American voter himself. You know grew up in Seattle live in Orleans Parish Louisiana Viana do ten times more African Americans than most people I know and data looking for somebody that can come in and not just exciting but talk about things that really matter to on an everyday life. They're not interested in socialism and revolution. And all that foolishness you hear the interested in somebody. That's going to come to them and articulate a vision as to how they fit into this country and what's that relationship and what kinds of things school they let kids go to the healthcare parents Lucy. The wages ever see. That's what Madison people in. If we lose we're going to lose we're going to beat a British Labour Party. We're going to be some theoretical left wing while yeah. I'm not sure there was James Carville at the end. That may have been somebody else. But but he's but he's he's taught that's the voice of experience that's the hack establishment that Michael Michael Moore talking about. You GotTa talk to the people and by the way. He doesn't disagree with socialism. He just doesn't think he can sell it to the people he thinks you should lie. The funny thing though. The funny thing is is very often the hack establishment is wrong. I mean think of Mitt Romney being put up against Barack Obama think of John McCain whoever thought that John McCain was going to win that thing and they've tell this mythology that somehow a Sarah Palin hurt him Sarah Palin help John McCain in his campaign it was John McCain who abandoned the campaign because he didn't want to go up again he didn't want to be the Guy I who stopped the first black president. I think I don't know what would he was in his mind but he abandoned his campaign so that was the establishment characters established characters were frequently. Oh when just before before the last election in two thousand sixteen I was doing a writing project and one of the guys who is running the project left to go run the Jeb Bush campaign and I blurted out in my loveable so Tactless way I blurted out Jeb Bush. He's not going to get any votes and the guy snorted he sneered at me. He snorted you. Know what your doctor. You Know Jeb Bush getting go I could tell the Jeb Bush was dead fish and he wasn't going to win anything so they're touting Joe Biden Joe Scarborough is saying to James Carville we gotta we gotta gotta get Joe Biden out there because he knows how to talk to the the black people where he hears. How Joe Biden talks to voter the other day? We've been playing this but let's play the full Experience of Joe Biden talking to this lady who came up and asked him a question. So you're arguably the candidate with the greatest advantage in this race. You've been the vice president you. You weren't burdened down by the impeachment trials so how in the participation so how do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win the national election so good question number one. I was a Democratic Caucus Mental Caucus. No you haven't you're lying dog face pony shows you said you were but now you gotta be honest. I'm going to be honest with you. It was a little bit confusing in Iowa number one but let's assume it was all everything was exactly right in Nyla okay. So that's that's and she laughed at the time he was joking around but later she told Fox News. She didn't think it was a very good answer. She didn't like it too much. A lot of what he's saying seems to be really painful space and very sad. We've heard a lot about the deaths and cancer and people losing their jobs and to me. He doesn't really seem very solution oriented and I don't think he has the momentum to carry this to national election dark I I still saying the same thing. Let you know play the clip of of a Biden rallies. Cook number five they. I can't stop you. Can't you can't get any more exciting and inspiring than that. My friends that is the thing let you know. It is just amazing when you go and listened to the guys speaking at the At the Bernie can't Rallies they are fired up their full of urgency. They're full of desperation. It's you know. Trump is Hitler everything. Everything is terrible. Were Racist Society. We've got to change everything right away. The problem the Democrat Party has is both sides can be right. Both sides can be right. One side can be right that if they go to the usual establishment. They're just going to go down the drain. The other side can be right that that the at and that the revolutionary guys the only guy who can inspire the enthusiasm to win the nomination. They may be right. That only Bernie can inspire the enthusiasm needed to win the nomination but James Carville can can also be right that once. He's a spire the enthusiasm to win the nomination. He can't speak to the people and that is a very very difficult position for the Democrats to be in and I. I don't want to say that I'm laughing up my sleeve but ha- up my sleeve that's a real problem. They've got on their hands right. You know former Louisiana governor. Oh let me just pause for a moment and tell you about Tommy. John's and this is what I I like doing these ads. Because this is the greatest underwear I have ever worn in my life if it is such great underwear and when it comes to comfort this underwear and then this Tommy John. The Revolutionary Clothing Brands Redefined Comfort for Americans everywhere. You you know we always check we we check everything that we do any sponsor we do we try to use it we try to check it out. At least it's not something we can use. We check it out this one. I I have to say when they sent me this. They said you don't even have to check it out. This is the best under wherever and then Tommy. John sent me some of their underwear and it is amazing. It is just incredible. It's different it is is different. I don't know why I'm not. You know. I read off the copy and tell you all their engineering things I have no idea just feels great is really comfortable built in ways. They're they're just very useful. Hurry to Tommy John Dot Com Slash Andrew for twenty percent off your first order. That's a good deal. Tommy John Dot Com Slash Andrew for twenty percent off. Tommy John Dot com I slash Andrew. I don't even have to read the copy I'm telling you the stuff is absolutely terrific aright So former Louisiana governor. Bobby Jindal is now a columnist he writes columns for the Wall Street Journal and they really are inciteful. They're really good and he has one he has today. That says Democrats WanNA profit not a not a president they WANNA profit not a president. He says the Democrats have turned religious. Reading from Bobby Jindal. The Democrats have turned religious. He's not in the sense that they espouse belief in an omnipotent and benevolent creator or terminal and universal moral principles. They're religious in the sense that they hold dogmatic beliefs that are impervious obvious contradiction by logic evidence or experience and cultivate a moral superiority toward unbelievers. The party that loudly prides itself on tolerance and diversity. versity is increasingly intolerant in at least three areas. I'm really glad by the way the Jindal made that distinction because I always hate it when people say oh that's religion meaning meaning it's unreasoning meaning. It's not you know it's impervious to evidence impervious to facts. Because my religion isn't like that at all. My religion does take facts into account. My religion is is based on reason. My religion being Christianity is based on the idea that God made the world Through his logos and that we being in the made in the image of God understand that logo was really glad he made that distinction that he wasn't wasn't talking about true religion he was talking about fake visas three areas. The Democrats have become religious. And you can tell Jindal is brilliant because some some of the things he says. Today I said yesterday and usually it takes people weeks to stay the stuff that I say here but I got right on it He Says I. Democrats have move beyond traditional environmentalism with its emphasis. That was such a snotty thing to say. Don't let me say things like that. What's wrong with you I? Democrats have moved beyond traditional environmentalism with its emphasis emphasis on regulation technological innovation and market incentives to achieve incremental progress toward a radical vision grounded in an unshakable belief in climate apocalypse lips. Both parties wants cooperated to protect endangered species and clean the air water and soil. Today's Democrats demand bans on fracking and new oil and gas leases on a federal lands and endorse the elimination of all fossil fuels and decarbonisation of the economy in unrealistic times. And by the way they endorse those things for you. They're not going to give up their private jets. They're going to be flying around in their private jets to lecture. You about how there shouldn't be fossil fuels. You cannot run a modern country without fossil fuels. It just isn't going to happen. So it's like they you know when they say that they're just virtuous signaling is only you were going to be deprived of the fossil fuels is still going to be flying around because she so important. I I'm ANSA. Socialism works you. Know it's the important people and the rest of us all right so this is partly the fact that they can live in this fantasy where global global warming is going to kill us. All five years ago is partly the press partly the press wraps them in their own fantasy world. But it's partly the panic that has set in on the left ever since since their policies failed ever since really the Soviet Union collapsed at the end of the eighties. They realize Oh. Our policies don't work but they didn't let them go. They didn't change them. They just went on and created this world in which they would work gentle goes on the second way that the Democrats will become religious is. They've moved beyond their support for keeping abortion safe. Legal Legal and rare as President Clinton put it in nineteen ninety-two now they denounce anyone. Who Views abortion as regrettable or propose any limitation on at? The party seems determined to to run out its few remaining pro life members and we identified this yesterday. Talked about the fact that once you go down this path you once you go down this path you lose lose sight of any kind of moral meaning I mean once you start to say that a baby and unborn child is not a human being you just. That path is a dark dark path managed. Just you follow all ideas. All ideas will draw you on to their logical conclusion. This is the thing about ideas. Ideas are very powerful. When you get a bad idea you wind up up in the darkness when you get a good idea you move toward the light? That's the way it works is the only way it works. That's why so much of the stuff we talk about in politics is meaningless that this guy having affair with somebody did this on his wife. Did this guy do this. Did this guy do that. That's not what we're really talking about. What we're really talking about is the ideas that will govern our society and will they live a lead us down a dark road or a road that takes us closer to the white? And you know when you talk about abortion it's a dark road and ultimately you are going to. They talk about a slippery slope that is a slippery slope and so now you have people saying yeah sure you know you should have an abortion till a moment before that child is born a moment. I mean anybody who's had a child and thinks thinks about that is either horrified or has been made into a psychopath has been do psychopathy by a bad idea. Because if you're not horrified by the idea of killing a baby was a committed away from being born. You've lost your way and once you start doing that you know like I said yesterday. Peter Singer of Princeton is sitting around talking about. Yeah well you know you can kill the toddler you can. You can kill a six month old. Didn't really can't make you know. Of course you can say that once you say that you can say you know what you can do. You can create bodies so that when your body parts run out you can just rip the body. Off Offside the body part of someone else and use it. You can go into some very dark places and have a very happy Smiley face society that is committing atrocities. Third Democrats have move beyond demanding legalization of same sex marriage to insist on rearranging social norms. Based on the belief in gender fluidity what was once a civil rights. Movement focused focused on marriage has moved onto demands for individualized pronouns access to opposite-sex bathrooms and violations of Parental Rights and Elizabeth Warren declared last month that she would have her pick for secretary of Education. Vetted by a young SCHRANZ person. Absolute craziness absolute nonsense. So you've got weather weather apocalypse killing babies. No gender no says all of these things go out of Marxist Post Modern theories but they also grow out of the failure the failure failure of Marxist practice they go out of the failure of socialism. Socialism fails everywhere even the socialism. That they are talking about now even Bernie says this. I don't know if he believes it. But the socialist and they're talking about now is not in fact really socialism. It is simply stealing right. The old socialism was the state runs the means of production the state. I mean there's no private ownership of anything that didn't work so now what they talk about is yes you own your business. You create the wealth and then we take the wealth away. Decide how to spend it that. That's actually fascism. They call it socialism. But that's actually fascism where businesses are allowed to run on their own but the government takes all the prophets. The government makes all the Controls them and then and then the politicians can go out and blame the greed of the companies after the companies are really forced into to Into doing what the government wants. So this is this is where they've gone and it is a religious place and once you've gone into that religious place there we we become the heretics we become the infidels. And that's why they can't talk to us. That's why you know we can't get people to come on the show and like discuss things in a reasonable way because they'll be cancelled if they come anywhere near us. It's toxic for them something. Obviously something has gone desperately awry. I mean because if you're looking for your religion region in the actions of Donald Trump if you're looking to confirm your relationship with God in Donald Trump's actions you've lost your your way you're not thinking unclearly about what politics is and what religion I mean they are Caesar and And God or different realms Jesus said so render unto. Caesar what is Caesar's under God. What is God's if you are looking to environmentalism to save the world if you're looking if you're thinking that you're about to die in five five years ago you know like I mean which is really one of the ways you become wise is by paying attention to people's predictions and seeing how they turn out you've lost your way and so something has gone really really wrong in our society David Brooks as pieces long piece in the Atlantic where he talks about the what he says is the end of Of the nuclear family family and that we need to build new kinds of families. And you know he's not he's not saying what people immediately said he was saying which is like. Let's abandon the nuclear family. He saying the nuclear family itself grew out of a bigger family where your grandparents were in the mix and everybody was really Altogether this kind of unified real family life and got dwindled down to the nuclear family. And he's saying by forging our own kinds of families And rebuilding that kind kind of bigger family structure. That might be the way to go in the future so it's not a complete abandonment. But I duNno David Brooks and nobody talks about this but it really is. It's not unfair affair. Talk about this. He was writing a book on character when he abandoned his wife of twenty six years. who had converted to Judaism for him but she had become too Jewish Jewish for him she became more Orthodox than he was and while he was researching his book on character he met a young woman who was a Christian left his wife for her and converted needed? So I don't know if he's a guy who should be lecturing us on how a family works but I do think I do think there is something about every society is built on one thing. It has built on the relationship attention between men and women because that's how people are produced that is the central relationship in humankind the Central Asian ship. I mean you think of the Bible a man and women will leave their parents and come together and become one flesh. You think of Pandora story do you think of all the stories of foundations. They always begin with with how the first man and the first woman came together. Whether maybe baby they talk about people being all about having both sexes and then being torn apart and having to find their soulmate. That's another myth. That is what's broken apart. And that's what I want to talk about Why people I feel are so lost and feel that something something think terrible is happening and we need to act urgently right now? I think that's where we've gone wrong last week. I told you about this terrific new podcast. The Cold War or what we saw was my friend. Bill Whittle over the weekend.

Everything in the New York Times is an attack on Donald trump and seriously the weather is now an attack on Donald Trump. They run the weather. It'll be You know the weather will be sunny today. But Donald Trump is bringing the clouds every story in the New York Times is against Donald Trump. So they like like the story about Cunanan Wishes this conspiracy theory and it's nuts. The conspiracy theory is not. Let me not mince words. This is not A. I'm not out endorsing this conspiracy theory. It is crazy but you never know where these things come from. This started with a guy named Q.. On Four Chan I think was putting out these. These ideas that became became the The basis of this conspiracy theory. But you just want to remember WanNa go back and remember the pizza gate which feeds into the conspiracy conspiracy theory by the way pizza gate. Was this idea that Hillary Clinton and others were running a child. Sex Ring out of a pizza joint in DC but that joint was run back to the former boyfriend of David Brock. Who is this big you know media matters? He's he's this Activist for the left and a big Hillary Clinton supporter. So there's some reason to believe that pizza gate was actually a right wing. Conspiracy Theory started by David Brock so that he could then begin the fake news. I mean that was used to censor right supposed to censor right wingers on facebook and on twitter and his has some effect on twitter. It is very hard you can get censored As a conservative on facebook. There are a little bit better but so some reason to believe that some of these conspiracy theories may be actually fed by the left Four but they rope in Gullible right-winger so this Cunanan is this weird theory that Donald Trump was recruited by the military to run for office in order to break up a global cabal of pedophile and the special counsel. Robert Muller His investigation was GONNA end with prominent Democrats being imprisoned at one time Hanem obey and they get really into the little boat exactly exactly but you know a conspiracy theories a story and like every store you have to ask yourself why people are telling that story and you know there is something tremendously. Disordered is always something disordered with sexuality and all human situations all all human societies have disorder because sex is a wild thing very hard to contain very hard to build a society. That's why that is why we organize and and That's why we organize the relationships between men and women because if you don't it's chaos and women are the ones who get burned John. Multi Breitbart has an article about porn hub which is a hosting site that hosts you know the majority of his content he says is not self produced Aside from content by other other sites that's owned by the parent company so that you can download porn onto porn hop. That's what it is. I guess it's this big porn points and so people are uploading actual rule videos of sex. Some of them with underaged girls right. And some of these girls. At least one of them claims she was raped and that pictures of her rate eight were downloaded onto porn hub and are just available as porn like her actual rape availables point something is terribly wrong and and it is children underage people. I've talked about this again. It's part of why I made it part of another kingdom. It's been part of my writing for a while. Because I noticed happening I noticed in happening in Hollywood. I noticed the story with Rice on the top that powerful men especially powerful men were using both boys and girls for their sexual pleasure and nobody ever did anything about it and the story would bubble to the top and then disappear and nobody would cover it the Harvey Weinstein thing. The fact that Harvey Weinstein got caught doing what he was doing was only because Hillary Clinton wouldn't lost the election. Hillary Clinton would one. I can almost guarantee you harvey Weinstein would never have been caught. And I don't know if you've been paying any attention to this Harvey Weinstein trial while but it's really disturbing. I'm finding it tremendously disturbing and don't please don't misinterpret anything. I say as having any sympathy for Harvey Weinstein who I think is trash okay. I think he treated men badly treated women badly. He's trashed but this is a legal matter right and in order to prove the somebody was was raped. You have to prove that they didn't want you to do what they're what you did to them. And so the defense is now working to disprove the stories stories of the women who say they were assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. And one of the things they are doing is they're producing emails showing that one of these women woman named Jessica Command who says she was raped. This very friendly relationship with Harvey Weinstein sent very loving emails You know email shorter out of protesting. Sometimes that that. She didn't like the way he was using her. But not like in a fierce way just kind of a little smiley face thing. Sometimes I feel like a booty call harvey one of the witnesses for the defense came out and said yesterday that he had sh she had said that Harvey Weinstein scene was her soulmate. You know and I think about this and I I. I'm putting myself in on the jurors on the jury and putting myself on the jury. I am listening to this and I'm thinking well you know the guy is trash but you're accusing him of rape right you're using your move rape and rape is a certain thing. It has a certain definition mission which is doing something to somebody that they don't want you to do and before you put somebody in prison right you've got to prove that and I look I doc. Personally I have no doubt wanting to terrible things to people and illegal things to people but I'm just talking about whether you have proved your case in court art. What is it about this woman that after? She says she was raped. She was writing letters to Harvey Weinstein listing. Saying you know I love you harvey and you've shown me so much and you've done so much for me and according to a witness calling her soulmate. It reminds me of the story about Matt Lower. which is in Ronan Farrow's book that was also in the newspaper You Know Matt Lauer was the guide. NBC where they were covering up where the covered up for Harvey Weinstein. Because I think they were covering up For Matt Lauer. Who was one of their big anchorman? And it was going around just bragging every woman he could get his hands on and treating them you know as as objects is treating leading them as pleasure objects for him once do treating girl so roughly. She actually passed out and had to be taken to the commissary and one of the women women came forward and said you know he forcibly sodomized me though. I said I didn't want him to. I repeatedly said no but He did it anyway. And in lowers response to this was she continued having a relationship with me. Now in the Ronan Farrow Book. He says that that was nonsense. He she continued to be abused abused by him. She continued to allow herself to be abused by him. I mean he would say he would bring call her in and say you know give me oral sex and he would force her to do this and every every time I hear these stories. I'm sitting there you know. These women are not being overpowered. They're not being bullied. The violence is not being used against intimidation is being used against them. But it's also something else it is also something else. It has a psychological technique of power perform. Powerful men are using on women and women who have lost their sense of who they are themselves. That's the kind of that's what I'm trying to get trying to get for that. And this is why I'm such an anti-feminist I think feminism has stripped women of a realistic sense of who they are as women that leaves them as prey to these people. The these I despise these people I despise people who treat people treat other people like this but I have to admit as this is a an old fashioned guy I despise people especially who treat women like this I I hate it and so that's why I don't want you to understand what I'm saying but what I am saying. Why didn't these women know that they weren't supposed to be treated like this? Why didn't they say wait a minute? You can't do this to me. I don't care if you're the boss awesome. I don't care if you're Harvey Weinstein. I don't care if you can give me a movie part. I'm a human being. You can't treat me like this. Why didn't they know and I think look? I'm not saying it hasn't happened through throughout history but something has gone wrong with breaks of been taken off by by the social revolution in the sixties when people started to say. Hey why are there all these restrictions on Sax. What is this thing about? Marriage marriage is enslaving women marriages just legalize prostitution. All sex is rape. You know all this. This is the kind of thing that was coming out of the feminist left and out of the left Emmett left women just exposed because there is a dynamic between men and women there's a power dynamic between men and women there's a psychological dynamic between men and women is an emotional dynamic between between men and women. And if you're not realistic about it you're living in a fantasy world where the weaker person is GonNa get hurt. The more vulnerable person is going to get hurt the softer after person. The nicer person possibly even the better person is going to get hurt and I think there's something really damaging has happened and it's not you know. Obviously he's not. Feminism is granting human rights to women. Of course I'm for that. That's not the point. It's the idea that there's no such thing as femininity. That women are equal to men in every sense into that word and that they don't have to take care of themselves in a special way and we don't have to take care of them which brings me back. which brings me back to what I was saying saying about the witcher? You remember this tremendous Conflagration that started. Because I watched the witcher which is very really entertaining. Really enjoyed it and and was show about the fact that is giving up your power of motherhood. You're power to create life for beauty and wealth is a fool's game so it was very anti-feminist anti-feminist message in my opinion. But it did have this woman going out and fighting with a sword and a medieval battle and I said that's crap and it is crap and all these women who who sword fight for sport. We're saying no. It's not because I could kill you with my point. was you wouldn't be fighting sixty five. Year olds scribe. You'd be it's so easy Gore Guy who would who would kill you the minute he saw you and by the way if you managed to kill him the next guy would kill you because that's what a battle all is so I was pointing and I was pointing out. Why when you show women being strong why when you show women being strongly have to show them being strong like men is strength? Even what you're looking for in women or is it something else and Christian. Toto my pal sent me Sent me this article From a deadline it line which is a a kind of movie trade site talking about this at female action picture rhythm section. which bombed and nobody wanted to see it and one of the things that said was when the people said was why? Is it reasonable in real movie movie. This not about superheroes that hundred pound woman can toss around two hundred fifty pound villains. It doesn't make any mistake. It doesn't make any sense so in the New York Times there was an article by this legislation and I went on her twitter feed and she is his is left left can be oh she so were oh my goodness she's so worried about climate changes touching it such that she so where the world is GonNa end this woman in Brit marling. Who wrote a show on Netflix called away which I watch? Watch part of newest kind of entertaining. I didn't get wrapped up in it but it was. It was good And she wrote a piece for the New York Times called. I don't want to be the strong female L.. Lead and I found this piece. Oh touching it weaves. In and out of things I disagree with. She's on the left. I'm on the right. We're going to disagree. But she says I moved to Los Angeles to become an actress at twenty four. These are the character descriptions of roles. I have read for meaning auditioned for thin. Attractive Dave's wife robot girl. A A remarkable feat of engineering. Her breasts are large and she's wearing a red sweater and she says I stopped my broth- that last one I still did not get the part and she. You said after a while it was hard to tell what was a greater source of my depression that I could not book apart horror film where I had three lines died on page four or that I was even auditioning mean to play these roles at all and she gets depressed. She says I continued to audition and continued to fail. My depression deepened. My self esteem plummeted. My boyfriend would get drunk and punch holes holes in the wall next to buy head I let him. He spat in my face. I let him. He dissolved into tears in my arms. I let him and she starts to she decides she's she's going to write her own stories about women and she finds something remarkable which I could have told her if she had called me up she still find the left. She probably doesn't have my number. The classic cure owes journey is a male story. It has been developed over centuries by men to describe the emotional life life of men. She thinks it's built on the order of the male orgasm but that's forty and simplicity but at least it let's her know that we are embodied creatures were embodied creatures features and our bodies deliver some of the meaning of our lives right and she starts to write about she you know. She starts to write stories in which he's an assassin a spy a soldier and she said that gave favor some you know she liked that she liked being a powerful person but she said it would be hard to deny that. There's new nutrition to be drawn from any narrative that gives women agency invoice in a world with air most often without both but the more I acted the strong female lead the more. I became aware of the narrow specificity of the character strengths. Physical physical prowess linear ambition. Focused rationality masculine modalities of power. That is what I've been trying to say. All right. She said it's difficult. But for us to imagine femininity itself empathy vulnerability listening as strong when I look at the world are stories have helped us some vision and then erect these are the very qualities that have been vanquished in favor of an over wrought masculinity you know. She talked about how she had to do this. In real life she worked in the finance industry and she had to pretend to be tough. Like men are tough in order to get any respect you know if I could speak to uninvite her on the show I. I'm pretty sure she won't come but I'll invite on the show one of the things I would tell her she should look. William Wordsworth sheets should look at what Wordsworth has to say about motherhood because because as we are embodied creatures women are just tied up in the fact of creation but creation doesn't just have to be. Oh I had a baby you know it can. NBA had a baby. That's an amazing thing to create life but it also is creating in the minds of children and in the minds of other people the meaning of like life women are restores of meaning. Their strengths are not male strengths. And yes I'm generalizing understand. Oh I'm I could come and punch you. That's not an argument is not an argument that there are exceptions. I'm generalizing what she's talking about. is how to tell feminine stories. It is hard to do because stories are basically things that men invented to make the fact that they can't have babies. Art is something that men invented to make up for the fact that we're not women and so- women's creativity is going to be tied up not on just with having babies but with inducing in the minds of those people they nurture and create and help to grow a sense of what reality really means I. I think it's something I'm really happy with. Somebody on the left is thinking about this. Because I think I'm sitting here talking about it by myself and I get hit all the time from the left but this lady Brit Marlene. I hope you'll come on but I hope she finds her way because she's she stumbled on something. That is absolutely true that I've been talking about and getting stung for for a long long time.

Academy Awards Edition! And My Top 5 Movies of 2019!

"This in both the the album. Gosh that is Jack White. And I'm a believer from the Joe Joe Rabbit trailer. The first first one in it is maybe one of the coolest songs I've heard in two thousand nineteen Welcome to the Monday morning critic podcast in the Academy Award Oscar edition in my top five movies of two thousand nineteen so everybody has a top five list. I get it for movies or top ten lists and everybody has a podcast now. Wow so I get that too in. Time is at a premium you know. I value the people who listen to podcasts. I value their time. If I'm going to put something out there I believe there's quality in it. I believe I'm not podcasting to hear my voice. Eight hearing my voice. I'm podcasting because I enjoy speaking with guests. It comes from and I said this a million times it comes from a place of passion passion in my heart. I really love doing this and I don't WanNa Waste People's time you know on the way to work. I've been thinking about this and I've been you know I work a few jobs in one of the things that I really really who I really enjoy listening to on the way to work Howard Stern and without giving you my full rundown over think of Howard. I'll break it down very simply. He is evolved. I think think no matter what field you're in if you're an actor director if your podcast or if you're a coach wherever you are I think you have to evolve. I think you have to look look at your product like many times. I'll look at it. I'll listen to and I hate my voice like I said but I'll listen to an interview. Only God that was a horrible interview. Sound was too loud. You're asking the same questions the fifth interview in a row. So that's why I try to evolve in shake things up I mean slowly but surely I think I'm getting there. I mean I have a lot of work ahead of me. I realized that but like like I said I value my listeners. Time I believe it's a premium and you know I do believe what I put out there is is is worth your time. It's worth your endeavor but but anyways my point about Howard stern is that he's evolves he. He hasn't stayed the same over thirty or forty years. You know he was the shock jock now if you listen to him he his his advice on anything it could be exercising or food. or how how. He handles his spare time. It just everything. That man does is so well thought out in detailed. I'm just envious of that. You know when he does call himself the king of all media he is he is the best interview on a plane. I mean he was interviewing and I think it was a show from the past. He was interviewing Miley Cyrus. Who I could careless about? I mean I don't hate her or anything like that but I could care less about the interview when I pay attention attention to a show like that I want to hear what Howard is asking. His guests like what is he getting. And it's it's just such a free flowing wealth auto clearly. Oh he does his homework or some of his staff they worked together in those meetings at Howard's always talking about nick craft the questions but they're so well done and it's clear how hard he's worked and his staff is working is he's just such a genius he so phenomenal interviewing and and I guess my point is in a long way. I I just feel like you know if I'm going to crash and burn I'm going to do so by putting putting effort in hardened to it in so far you know three or four years later podcasting. I think I've done a decent job. I'll put my. I've said this before. I'll put my guess quality against anybody and I and I feel like my podcast is certainly worth people's time. So I wanNA thank you for the time for listening and downloading the PODCASTS and coming back that it does mean the world to me so On that end I thank you. I am recording this about an hour and a half before the Academy Awards start. It's about six twenty five eastern right now on Sunday night. I am recording this with the hopes of getting it out at least before the Academy Awards telling you what I hope for giving you my top for two thousand my top five thousand nineteen and give you my thoughts about what I'm about to see in an hour and a half so it'll be interesting to see how close I am. I do have some great interviews coming up so stay tuned for that Before I get going if you guys want to contact me it's Monday morning critic on instagram Indian uh-huh MDM critic on twitter. Monday morning critic at gmail.com those are three ways. You can get a hold of me. The podcast available everywhere. stitcher apple podcasts. Whatever I usually posted on instagram? If you're looking for a quick Lincoln certainly said that available on facebook too so check those out. Hopefully you'll find it interesting. I'm really looking looking forward to getting out some really quality content in the near future. You know I have a lot of great interviews coming up and hopefully you appreciate that. So thank you for those of you reaching out appreciate it all right all right. Let's do this so as I mentioned before. Everybody has a podcast now. Everybody has one now and I would say of that. One hundred percent podcasters. I would say say twenty to thirty percent of those. PODCASTS are actually listenable where you'd want to come back again. Writes like a restaurant Yate there once was a good. Would you come back again. Yes I would consider that eight good podcast. I believe my restaurant. My podcast is one where yes you would go back to eat again. There might be some slight bias behind that comment. But that's what I think And I'M GONNA. I'm a really harsh critic of myself. So that being said I have a guest coming on his name. Is Nigel Block. It's already the interviews. Already been recorded I have to some editing with some bouncing echoes and sounds and I have to edit it. So that's coming out this week module block is a fantastic cinematographer. He did the he was is the DP for the director of photography for Peanut Butter Falcon. He did a lot of work on Lord of the rings he his his amazing amazing filmography. So as with many guests I was listening to an interview that Nigel was doing. Another podcast and and I'm GonNa get this podcast named the host's name out there because I do want to give him credit he was he was in this the listenable twenty to thirty percent. He had Nigel honesty about a a year ago. And this podcast was so frigging good. The questions he was asking you could tell he so well-spoken you could tell get a love for cinematography movie making like when I listen to this pocket and like this guy loves what he does so to hear that. 'cause I don't always hear that and there's a couple of time I had. That are atrocious. It doesn't come from a place of love looking for a place a passion. It's just like why are you doing this like it doesn't even it's so unlistenable. As opposed to this podcast. I was listening to where he had Nigel Con. The guy was so good. And I'm going on the next episode. I will release that. PODCAST and the podcasts casts podcasters name because I have to give him credit he was so good and interviewing Nigel such it just so refreshing to hear another podcast or not the famous ones. I'm always talking about. You're not howitzers on a podcast. But you know him. The Joe Rogan's in the World Bill Burr. All those famous podcasters Adam. Corolla the little independent guys like me and people like us. It's nice to see them. See People like me just doing a great job. With what what they believe in what they love. It's just I love it. So Yeah my next interviews with cinematographer Nigel Block and I. I'm going to give credit to the podcast sir. WHO's interview I? I listened to before my interview with Nigel and getting some information and just really interesting thing. So I don't WanNa podcast so that being said everyone also has has a top five two top ten list and I would say forty six now since I've eight nine years old. I've been watching movies my whole life in washing over and over again. I'm the guy who went through. VHS tapes over and over again. I mean I think I went through like three field of dreams. Three or four of the natural Shawshank I blew through a lot of that. I just my point is I. I love movies as as many of you have noticed. Stand you know movies and TV race. Me Don't get me wrong. I I had two parents. Anybody could ask for like I am so fortunate that had that I had that I have a mom I have like like it's beyond words so I'm so happy with that but I'm also the nerd that was like that locked himself in the basement and and watch TV and watch movies at forty six years old. I make my way to the theater once a week to get up on things in my spare time. I'm watching shows keeping up with things so I think I don't WanNa see him an authority but I think when I say something thing. It's not just a flip comment. I see a lot I watched the Oscars now. And there's a Lotta these like guessing and pools and whatever with people that haven't seen any of these movies I just. I don't know what it's like before going into the NFL playoffs. If you don't follow football year in your betting on who's GonNa win the Super Bowl to me that lacks a little bit of legitimacy. So I don't know I think my top five list has some credit to it and the way I look at it is not so much what I think the top five movies of the year art. I look at it this way. If somebody had five movie passes in knowing what I know they said I need five movies to go to. These are the five that I'm going to name that I believe Steve are worth your money. Now that's not saying if I had to go to ten. There's a whole `nother category but I'll keep it short and I wanNA keep this podcast episode short and sweet. I I look at it my head is when I give the top five. What what would I tell somebody else to either? Spend their money on or use a movie pass on if they can only see five so that being said here are my five movies. I'm going to start with one of the ones I saw in two thousand twenty but it's a two thousand eighteen release that I will be cheering like hell for tonight in. That movie is Joe Joe Rabbit. I absolutely loved Joab. It is in my top five and I'm not giving us specific civic order right. It's just here are the top five. I went back and forth so if I had I I really kind of battled with a tie for number five because I with my first one because I really a beautiful day. The neighborhood would be if I had to go tie would be here but I give a slight edge to Joe Joe Rabbit it both movies. Believe it or not are kind of the same in the sense that both are just about humanity and kindness and just love and I know it's weird to say that about joab movie who a kid who who's make believe friend is Adolf Hitler but the movie has such an enormous heart take a great soundtrack phenomenal acting. Sam Rockwell is another stratosphere at this point in Taiko. It director who also plays Adolf Hitler in the movie is I absolutely like so caught off guard with his performance. Like I mean he hits a home run at two different roles hormones director and then he hits hormone is playing Adolf Hitler. I mean it's just so so well Diana writer for that matter I mean he is so immensely talented a breath of fresh air on what we do in the shadows is also a vampire movie that he's done as well also. There's two kids in this movie. That are so good. This movie just makes up on you and I had a tough time deciphering between this movie. Joe Oh Joe Abbott and Beautiful Dan. The neighborhood I mean. They're so similar as far as the message. They're trying to send about humanity. Eighty and just valuing people valuing life valuing what people should mean to each other. They're so similar in in that way. And I really hate separating East I want you to know that I hate it but I would absolutely recommend a beautiful neighborhood it because it's so damn good Joe. Rabbits snuck up on me and I hope it kicks ass tonight. I hope it cleans cleans up in every award is nominated it for a long shot to do really really well as long as the Irishman doesn't win. I'm good I mean. I don't cheer for bad things to happen to most people but but I just. I'm not a fan of the Irishman. I'm not a fan of this movie in any way. I think I've talked about this before it is so overrated. I do appreciate that. It's a good bye to these or a you know as far as acting together you know. Pacino Deniro PECI pitching him out of retirement. He he does a great great job. But you know it's just. I'm not cheering for the Irishman. Any way shape or form. I didn't care for Martin. Scorsese's comments on marvel movies or superhero movies. I thought there was way out of place. Robert De Niro is really weighing on me in every way shape or form in the last couple of years so anyways but Joel Radin would be an number five if I had to go with a tire six. I do not want to rule out a beautiful day in the neighborhood which I've done review on a Tom. Hanks so good. There's so many people involved with that. That have done a great job. The other movie I wanted to bring up not going to say it's four but my second one is peanut butter Falcon. I thought the movie was is the most overlooked movie right when you're ignored by SAG when you're a SAG awards ignored by the Golden Globes. And now you don't get anything for the Academy Awards. It kind of bothered me a little bit because this movie deserved something Michael Schwartz and Tyler Nelson. The two directors deserved something. I mean this was their their passion project. Shiloh is so good in this movie and start saying that the Shah is a top ten to fifteen actor. We just stop who start giving him that credit like he's no longer this guy. Let's assume as crazy that can kind of act. He's a fantastic actor. Let's just leave it there like he is so goddamn good. It's ridiculous and I don't think he gets enough credit for what is abilities can reflect. I mean he is just so good. I mean gene in the interview that I've kind of tease a little bit about this coming out this week. The cinematographer I had Nigel Block said Shaya comes was off the plane in his role. Ready to go I mean and he was so wrapped up in invested into this movie. So many people were you. Had you know the the boy with Down Syndrome Zach and God's again who to such a phenomenal job. I was hoping for a nomination for him and a peanut butter fom get really screwed. I mean movie. Visually looks phenomenal. The sound is great. The acting is phenomenal. I just I was really really disheartened that this movie was ignored by everybody. And it's I'm really starting to get worried about Out those people with votes. I'm starting to think there's there's many most people have a SAG card. I think I would like to feel the responsibilities. The ones I know when I talked to on occasion definitely watch what Dave vote for but I wonder how many people actually watch what they vote for. It just seems so political like websites are coming out you know now are reputable websites are coming out with. You know. I don't like this actor. I found this movie boring. They're they're giving something personal. That should to be voted on a public voice in other words. If you're an actor you can say sure. I loved this movie. I love them but we but to say this movie was boring into be critical and then go under. Anonymous seems just cowardly to me like I just hope. Sag voters take the responsibility seriously. A lot of people were very hard for these awards like some people. Never come back back to this stage again right the Academy Awards or a big thing and some people. I mean there's been actors that have Renee Zellweger tonight. She'll me they are. She hasn't been here in like twenty years. I think or it's been a long period of time. So so people come back over a lengthy lengthy period of time so people will come back at all so that really I just hope sagged borders take responsibility seriously in Nazi peanut butter and all that movie with Shiloh Buffalo. He's a big piece of this or piece of that. I'm not GonNa Watch that I'm Ignore that that's so unfair to him because he's the guy is a passionate actor he so honesty super supremely talented. I hope I hope SAG actors do right by each other other. I really do and and give every movie the the attention that they deserve right. I hated the Irishman and on a personal level. I could care less what Martin Scorsese thinks of marvel movies. As in what Robert Deniro things politically but I would still give everyone that worked really hard of movie the attention it deserves and I. I hope that's what goes on. I hope that people don't look at Shiloh often. Say Hey you know what I hate him. That guy's crazy he's this he's that he's whatever it just completely ignore that that would be so unfortunate to me if that's what's going on. I hope politics doesn't rear. Its ugly head. Hoping hoping part of Sag means that you're honoring the craft your honoring that piece of work and I hope that's what people do because I know the people I talked to do. The SAG voters talked to are taking very seriously. I just hope most people are like they are because i. It's scary when Internet. Reputable sources are leaking comments. Comments from Sadler's I I can't I can't do that. Bothers me a lot. So peanut butter falcon big disappointment deserve the nomination. It's in my top five for the year. No doubt what about it This movie has a heart and soul to it. That's almost unmatched. Please peanut butter Falcon I I I can recommend enough my third on my list. I again no order just throwing them out would be Ford versus Ferrari Christian Bale Matt Damon. My God This movie is I feel like this movie. People people feel like you know Christian. Bale is one so much that you know what the nomination is enough right. Because in some cases with movies and actors the nomination is the award right. Ebbing nominated is the recognition. It's not winning the award. I don't know. I think this is such a big budget movie. I don't want to call it. Underrated underrated or overlooked. But I think it is like I was watching this movie. I probably three or four times. Now they're over the weekend. The weekend came out. I don't know I feel like the nominations not enough here. So if Joe Joe Rabbit doesn't win I'm cheering for all things for versus Ferrari really loved this movie win. I just Matt Damon and in Christian. Bale are just so good at their craft. And I know I'm leaving a ton of people out right with these movies. I'm talking about just the headliners here but there's so many people involved I get that just really really well done movie. It's not you know. Race cars are racecar. RACECAR movies are a funny thing because I love. I'm obsessed with them. I love days of thunder. I loved rush. You Know Ron Howard's Racecar tribute movie. I love for versus Ferrari race card. NASCAR movies are kind of a funny thing up Talladega Nights. I can't leave out because as a sport I hate it. I can't stand watching it. But as when they're made into movies. I love just focusing on the driver's the competitiveness like I love it so Hollywood I love the Hollywood version of what they've done to race car movies. But as a sport if you call it that the turning left for four hours not a big fan I mean I i. I see boxing movies and I love boxing. Boxing on I'll watch it and I love Rocky Cinderella Man on and on it but it's such a strange thing with NASCAR I so my favorite movies of all time are some of the ones I just named and I can't. I've never watched an entire race for NASCAR or Formula One. And it's not the belittle those that are involved. I just. It's just so boring but what Hollywood is done to it as made it interesting for me and made it passionate for another reason why I love movie movie making and watching film so the next movie very similar very well known movies getting awards getting recognized. I Love Quentin Tarantino's passion. I think he's I just love his perspective and where he comes from in his what he feels about moviemaking. I remember reading about how used to work at like a blockbuster Mr or VHS store and that's kind of where questions love of movies originated in that blockbuster in that VHS store just going through movies like how do you not love that. How do you not love that? So that being said I have to include once upon a time in Hollywood. I love everything about this movie. Leo In especially Brad I pay Brad Pitt Fan. People don't remember this Brad Pitt. Early on was kind of people may not me other people made him sound like a joke. You know he's gray looking dude dude. Who can act kind of mocked film in Louise to some degree? Sorry like Brad. Pitt is a phenomenal actor. I'm so happy he's getting all the Kudos in this In his speeches are even ten times better like he is universally loved like in the same way like Ellen Degeneres says like university loved at some degree and I feel like Brad Pitt is like like that people. Just love him. He's poking fun at himself. He's giving these really awesome speeches and I'm pulling for him tonight as well. So yeah I mean if I had to categorize is it bouncing will replace your guys from trying to get this in by the time the award start. I'm cheering for once upon a time in Hollywood namely Brad Pitt tonight. I'm cheering for Joe Joe. Abbott and I'm cheering for four versus Ferrari. So that covers at least half the movies I think but seriously I think Brad Pitt is just come from us. He's just a phenomenal actor. I love to meet Joe Black. I loved him and just so many things. He's done fury with show against Shiloh buff. So he's done so many things I really. I can't say enough about Gwen Tarantino Bleed Art of the CAPRIO. I mean I'm not gonNA. He's just so good and everything he does as well. So yeah. I'm just Brad Pitt I I have. I have a real soft spot in my heart for him because I've liked him since day one. I've always loved all of his work and it's nice to see people saying good things things about him. People appreciating him because he is talented he and his so good in this movie as well. I just it's just a it's just a wonderful movie if I have to tell you to go see once upon a time in Hollywood and you haven't seen it already chances are you're not the biggest movie Fan but hopefully you can get to a rented soon because it is so good. I mean the movies like this should not how she your first time. Viewing should not be. Netflix should not be on Amazon. Prime should be on Hulu. I mean these are movies. You have to go and see Joe Joe Rabbit. I saw very very late and I think a week or two later was available on I tunes. But I'm the theater experience. Nothing compares to it. Nothing like don't get me wrong. I I own a ton of movies in my iphone on. You know by the way side. No- here for those of you. That buy movies on I tunes. Do you know that they could take the movies away on out out of your phone without you knowing. And they don't have to say anything so if you spend ten bucks just say on a Titanic and then I tunes for some reason stopped carrying. Titanic you lose. WHO's that money straight out? ENYA lose movies. Well read up on it Google. I tunes movie. They can take it away anytime from you. And that's a little bit disheartening for me because I'm watching movies on the treadmill. I'm watching movies everywhere. My iphone is is my you know. That's that's command central right there. I'm watching everything out of that. So yeah that's just a little disheartening. But anyways really happy for Brad Pitt really hope that he gets the recognition that he deserves. Tonight love him. I know he's been. He wanted to Golden Globes. He wants SAG. So there's a shot here. He could he could make three three so i. I'm really cheering for him. And I and I love Tarantino's passion Yes so a lot of good things here so coming into the last movie. I peanut butter on my list. Once upon a time in Hollywood would four versus Ferrari Joe Rabbit on the outside looking in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Tom Hanks's so good as Mr Rogers. Boy Boy I sneak have created a top six list not a top five list. I get it but I'm going with my top five. I'm giving you my concrete five. The last movie I I loved this movie and I get really pissed when people should all over this movie I hated it makes me furious. I get irate. And they do it all the time. I was watching a website that deals with sports and I know the guy doesn't watch many movies. He does pizza reviews. And that's great because she's a phenomenal. Talent Awesome entrepreneur talk about how much he hated needed. This movie like are you serious. Like you definitely don't watch a lot of movies and that's what bothers me. Most is when people that don't watch a lot of movies give feedback. Oh that sucks. Oh that was really good. Well how do you know that if you have nothing else to compare it to like if you're watching movies once every two months and you're like that was really good. That was really bad. Like there's no standard or point of reference to compare it to. I mean the only people should be talking movies. Are those that are there. They're watching movies all the time if you're not watching movies all the time and you shouldn't be talking movies. I'm sorry just I'm just really adamant about that. You just can't think of a podcast. It's very clear the host doesn't watch any of the material Israel has his guests are and whether it's a movie or TV show maybe want occasion but he uses against writing service. That's something completely different it is. I'm listenable and it's a little a few reasons one because the host but two and mostly because of this is because he doesn't know what he's talking about. I can't do a podcast about baseball and not have her watch the A game all summer. I get really furious when people comment on movies and they really don't do their homework they don't do the background research much. Like some of the Jaguars ars I've been hearing about lately. It just bothers me anyways that being said this movie. Yeah I don't WanNa go off on a tangent. I'm going to get get myself. Another hard issue ended up in hospital for over a week against so anyways this movie I thought was so good I hate reading. You know the Internet is so toxic. I ate it and sometimes I get sucked. Backed up into it. You know we have those star wars fan boys and Marvel Fan boys that are ruining things and wanting to rewrite movies. I've talked about that on numerous occasions but this method it's such a big heart to it and movies yesterday directed by the supremely talented one of my all time favorites. Danny Boyle Homage Amish Patel is in it. Louis James. This movie is so good and it stuck with me. I saw earlier in the early spring of two thousand nineteen. It really puts a interesting thing on the table. Right interesting question. You know how much influenced the Beatles have and now I don't WanNa ruin the movie for you but it. It doesn't just stop there. It goes into what is relevant and our culture and and would be the same without some of the things that we have in our life our lives that we that we so you know our our pop culture are our standards of entertainment. You know with things change. It really puts an interesting discussion on the table and it has one of the biggest surprises prizes. I guess in an ending that I've that I've seen this year I I loved yesterday. It was in my top five from start to finish. Some of these movies creeped in in and at the last minute I would say yesterday was in it for the longest amount of time. I've really loved this movie from the moment I saw and we had me in tears. Here's like I I left the theater. I'm like I just don't get how people are not talking about this or how somebody call it boring and I get it. It's all subjective. I forget it you know. My favorite color is green. Years is blue. You know we're both not right. I mean whenever I mean we think we think but I just think yesterday was not given the proper do it is so good. A master director some phenomenal actors. I loved it. I guess you're has a huge heart and you'll there some movies. You don't wait week for Netflix. For this was one of them. I felt like in definitely movie. I felt it didn't against property when in its respect there's other movies I wanted to touch on if I was to expand span my list beyond five. Here's what I thought was really good this year. I was really underrated doctor sleep. Dr Sleep was so oh good Joker I WANNA you know. Sleep on Joaquin Phoenix. I love him super talented guy. I think. Probably a good human being as well rocket man. Dan was in and out of this list. I love rocket man. If I had done this podcast. Four months ago it would have been my top five but it's definitely my top. Ten loved hair. Negative things a phenomenal actor. Huge future ahead of him. Just a great great movie parasite I would put my top ten. We are looking at some groundbreaking stuff happening in that movie. And if you're one of these people that decide whether they want to watch or not watch based DON subtitles. That's a scary thought for me like some of the best movies of all time have subtitles. That's like me saying you know what I can't watch movie. That's in black and white. That's just too much for me. I mean does sound really ridiculous when you think about it was parasites got a lot of things going for it including their amazing director. Her Bong Jun Ho. Just look at a guy that is groundbreaking There's one right there parasite fantastic jewel. I like a lot a lot on Netflix. Small documentary called. Tell me who I am. I had both guests on my show. I wouldn't put it in the you know. Obviously obviously Academy Awards are base. Most movies short films. That's more of a documentary. I loved that this year the most overrated I thought was nineteen seventeen. I I liked it a lot but one thousand nine hundred. Seventeen appeal doesn't come so much with the acting as it does with its cinematograph Ramos. Director her CNN days and Roger Deakins. That's the appeal to nine hundred. Seventeen and saving private Ryan is the standard of war movies. If that's like a ten not at ten or nine and a half hundred ten by comparison I put nineteen seventeen at like a seven. And a half. If you're basing on the cinematographer director mediate but yeah I I thought nineteen seventeen was a little overrated. I I don't cheer against things and cheer for other things but I hope nineteen seventeen doesn't win in every every movie. I'm mentioning. I highly recommend I stand by all my recommendations because I've actually seen the movies unlike other people I've seen what I'm telling you to watch and I love it right so so some other other appreciated movies that flew under the radar a little bit Captain Marvel seems to be taking a Lotta Shit for some reason. I liked that a lot. I really lead like bright burn. It's very superman-like but it makes you. When I say Superman you know raising a child? That's fallen from the sky. You know from a young child to an adult. It makes you wonder you know or what would happen if that child grew up evil and it's not necessarily a villain but it. It's it's the superman spin of what if life right. I Love Bright Burnham Mustangs Academy Award Worthy but. It's one of the better movies I saw this year. I liked double a lot. People crapped on it I'm not sure why but I really liked Dumbo. I think people are a little bit hard on Tim. Burton with this there was a good movie. overrated the Irishman. Has You no. I'm not gonNA say that again. I thought uncut gems a little overrated to be quite honest with you Adam sandlers a phenomenal actor. You'll never you'll never not sell me on that point I get. He's one of the best movies of all time he was so good in it One of the best performances I probably should say is more accurate statement. Lion King unnecessary remake Hustle I'm good thanks. I thought knives out was a little overrated little bit good movie. I I love Ryan Anderson. I am not big on the The WHO done it. Let's go through piece by piece kind of clue scenario death. More personal than against subjective It's a really well done movie and Ryan Johnson's a really really good filmmaker but it just not for me. It's just not for me in any way shape or form last year's winner green took so much shit other forget spike Lee other people crapping all over it. I really hope whoever wins tonight that there aren't people in the audience that are going to take away from that moment who we have no business doing that right like like beyond saying Jay Z.. Showing up an hour and a half late for the Golden Globes. While there's somebody up there getting an award like how disrespectful is that so. I hope there's nobody that takes away from anybody's moment today and I really hope there's people that just think their parents they thank you know a religion. Thanks the people they love. I hope we can say from politics. Because I've just about had it with Patricia. arquette up you're talking about how awful you know. Politics politics are at this point. I just it's a real turn off for a lot of people I have to say. Everyone's allowed to talk politics. I get it and I get. It's a huge stage to do so I don't know but just there's other other pressing oppressing people you can talk about those you love growing up. Who meant who meant the world to you? There's other things you could bring up in that moment. A mentor an acting coach a loved one. You've lost that meant the world to you and believe in you and no one else. There's so many other things you could be talking about. Yeah the environment and needs attention. But I just don't think this is the place to do that. Like it comes across as phony. Just my thing about the environment do your thing do it. Don't just make it about I'm up here. People can really person because my thirty seconds to a minute. I'm going to talk about the environment and then not do anything about it the rest of my life because that's what it seems like a lot of people are doing. I just really hope that people don't again one takeaway from the moment and to use the moment appropriately appropriately again. What is appropriately? I I don't think politics is in that stages is the right setting that just my two cents in full disclosure. There's a few movies move movies issue. That came out that I just will not watch based on it. Maybe this is being ignorant I'll own it. I refuse to watch. Cats are refused to watch men in black. I refuse to watch anything with Tyler. Perry at the end of it I mean I I was looking at stuff online. Apparently that movie had no editor This year Angel has fallen. I'm all set. I'm just some movies I just can't do. I mean I. I just feel like if if if the people that are making somebody's movies don't take it seriously. Then why should should I so. Yeah some of these movies homage Ez pass on and I can tell you mentioned Howard Stern earlier in in in Leslie Jones the former. SNL CAST member was on Howard it show and she was talking about Ghostbusters and it was really just a a great. I'm not Lizzie Jones Fan. I don't find funny. I don't don't find her comedy funny at all. I'm not a big fan at all. But but I've really appreciated in loved what she was saying her earn. Howard we're having this discussion and Leslie was talking about how she was in? The all female reboot ghostbuster in movies work in general all because they're great movies. GHOSTBUSTERS was special one. Because of the time why. People continue to remake Halloween and they continue to remain. I mean there's talk for another joker movie and people are continuing to beat down these. There's another sorry make. There's another Halloween. It's it's like enough but anyways we're not going on a tangent on unnecessary remakes. Leslie Jones was talking to Howard and she's in the all-female movie ghostbusters. The all the all female reboot the one re that completely bombed last year. And it's tough I think to be `situation because you cannot remake. A classic very rarely do remakes ever work and they don't work when you WanNa make a when you WanNa Base Komo movie based on who you want for your cast versus the story itself. So I don't know I just anyways there were having a discussion Howard Stern Leslie Jones and she was like I was so honored to be in this movie. You know and she was really proud and I totally get that. I get what she's trying to say. You know she was talking to Howard our she said you know. We're all done only wrapped. We thought we had a really great movie on our hands. You know so I don't know I. I love the fact that she had so much pride in the fact that she wanted it to work. Obviously her heart was in the right place. You get absolutely cheer for her in wanting into work and her point to how rose you know I caught so much hate for this us. Because there's there's this thing where people think they own movies. They own generation. The Own Franchise Star Wars ghostbusters. You fill in the blank here. And they were so bad to her online. Leslie Jones like you know she said to Howard. And I'm paraphrasing your shoes. You know I had so much pride in this you know all female cast ask and I was getting such awful comments online from other people such hateful things said and then I would click on the profile of these people saying awful things to me. Online about the ghostbusters reboot the all-female ghostbusters reboot. She said I would click on some of these people's twitter accounts our facebook pages and it would be a guy I with his daughter a father with his daughter a husband with his daughter. Saying the most mean spirited things about that the all female cast and I can tell you. That's the problem we're having today. Is that the fans think they can manipulate the movie. The fans that they have grown beyond the movie itself the product itself off and I just think it's very very dangerous ground and if you do get a chance to listen to that interview is really good like I said I'm GonNa be Mosey Jones Fan. She's really loud. I don't think there's a lot of creativity behind it. It's it's not for me but I really loved her sentiment. You know like I have these fathers of daughters seeing the worst nastiest things to me and ah she's right. She's so right because they should be cheering for her. They should be cheering for the female cast. So I've kind of appreciated the conversation again Howard's creativity ativity in in facilitating wonderful conversation with Lesley. It's just it's just interviewing at. Its very very best so to recap my five that you should see. Eighty five movie passes and you haven't seen anything peanut butter Falcon four versus Ferrari once upon a time in Hollywood yesterday and Joe. Joe Rabid of it Tonight I will be cheering heavily for once upon a time in Hollywood I will be cheering for versus Ferrari and I will definitely be cheering for for Joe Joe Rabbit. I hope you guys got something out of this Sorry for the rambling. I was trying to get it in before the Oscars as we speak. Thank you so much for listening to the Academy Award addition stay tuned. I got some awesome interviews coming up. Drop me a line if you want Monday. Morning critic gmail.com. MDM critic on on twitter.

Episode #262: 2020 Oscar Predictions

"This is Caitlin Blackwood. I played young a million pond on doctor. Who and you're listening to the five ish? Van Girls podcasts UH The tangent. We continue all the way to episode of sixty. Two of the five is rangers. podcast asked this time once again for us to make our Oscar predictions and we have toiled and struggled a news. The most advanced scientific methods to make our picks are we may have tossed a coin. Welcome I'm rolling dice. Roll dice the updated this from the the girls dress. Let's start off like during the ritual table in this week is in Bethlehem. This is Kristie in Salt Lake City. This Wisconsin in assist Rachel in Indianapolis Indiana. Hello we'll wait. We decided to rule against the dartboard with us and how we were feeling. We didn't WANNA accidentally aim go through the Internet dimensional ticks and hit hit it. Each other possible with my name would probably really happen. I just I just I just went I I I just went to my My my dnd supplies in like hey got a big bag of dice. US that we have to do is D- D. Sixes details D twenty twelve. All it all depends on how many are nominated in each category so categories are going to have to use it. He twelve probably. Yeah we shall see you but before we get to that we need. Oh you do the news like usual and I feel like a broken record but off with some dots. A great clock news. I was just listening to last week's episode side note here scare some people but they Record themselves yourselves. They hear the voices back there. Like that's really what I sound like in this last wheeze case how found in the recording is exactly how I knew I take you iron surprise. Relax exited with your voice I I oh sure yeah. Well it it Hindsight Twenty twenty. I probably shouldn't have done. The Bug gaskets the next day I literally could not talk. Why is it so since I didn't need to talk? It wasn't a big deal but anyway yes so but this week if if Rachel needs to to pass it over to one of US please do. Yeah ballot I do. I shared with such gas. It's just you just don't have my notes but anyway Send them through the chat. And we'll say Joel says yes they take pictures Okay so yeah but anyway back to the news CACAK fascinating so I up a couple pieces. Ten o'clock news One dig shock. that's kind of like resonated resonated through out all over the INTERWEBS and everything But basketball legend the I guess star and Oscar winner as a test appropriately enough or I guess eerily appropriate appropriate than us Kobe Bryant's of the Los Angeles Lakers died yesterday in a helicopter crash along with eight other people including his thirteen year. Old Daughter Jonah They were on their way to to a basketball game When the helicopter crash In calabasas California. WHO's only forty one forty one on years old retired in from the NBA in two thousand sixteen As A FIVE-TIME NBA champion. Dan Eleven time at all. NBA First Team Selection two thousand eight. MVP TWO-TIME FINALS MVP eighteen eighteen time all star for four-time all-star MVP He also won gold medals with the best team in two thousand eight Beijing Olympics and the two thousand twelve London the London Olympics vicks and then in two thousand eighteen. He won an Oscar for his animated short film. Dear basketball other things so so I I mean. I don't know how how much you guys follow basketball. I mean I've I felt basketball. I've been I mean the jazz has here are like it's almost a religion And and for me it has been since I was very small and out west. I mean if you know anything about the NBA NBA of the. You know the Eastern Conference Western Conference so the jazz played the Lakers a lot during the regular season or in the playoffs and I I will say this Kobe Bryant while he was a player was the bane of my existence. Because every time the Lakers came to town. It doesn't matter what the circumstances were like. We got shacking Co.. We gotta beat them. We just have to same thing with the bowls the same thing with any any other you. You know big team with big name players. And even when the jazz were had had that skid. They weren't very good and it was after the Stockton Malone era every it's nine a it it it was just like I was reflecting on this yesterday when all this news is coming out and I'm like you know. He drove me crazy when he was a player because he would when he beat Pitas it was awful and hated it when we need him. It was great now. Yeah and it was like it when players like that. Whether whether you're whether you are a player or your fan those are the kind of players you wanna go up against because they actually make the game means something I mean. Yeah you could spend your whole season beating up on some crappy little team that that that stinks and nobody cares about but it was always the the good teams good good players when you beat them. That actually meant something so you know when we when we would well. I say when the jazz would beat the Lakers and beat Kobe Bryant. It was awesome awesome. Because we've beaten somebody who was amazing. He was amazing. Amazing talent heck of a competitor. I mean and and those kinds of those kinds of players they bring out. I mean it's kind of Cliche but you know they bring out the they make you play your best or you. Ah You hope they do. And then you know after he retired as reading some other articles. About how like the reason he started taking helicopters was like before he retired was so he. Could you know. Get home in time to take the kids to school or pick. Pick them up from school or go to his daughter's basketball games or things like be involved in his kids lives and like if if you know anything about Los Angeles list traffic it can take you two hours to go in Indianapolis take you ten minutes. Yeah that was like he was wasting. It said the thing wasting so much time in commute when he wanted to spend time with his family and he was like his wife said well I can pick up the kids from school but but for him it was he. He wanted to be there for for his daughters. And I liken it sounds like you know they were. I guess Jonah. She was kind of becoming a good player in her own right. So that was the basketball game. They were on their way to I. Guess as I understand it or something like that and it was just like you know I mean yeah you know. He's had his issues he's had things happen but kind of just over the years he's just become a real became a good role model. He became somebody that so many people I looked up to whether you're a fan or whether you actually played against him there I've I've been looking at things from post from athletes who either played with them or like I mean nowadays the the young guys in the NBA like Donovan Mitchell. WHO's a big player for the jazz now like his twitter? He was just talking about how much she looked adopt Kobe. And and all those things and it's just I mean yeah. He annoyed me when I when he was a player because he would beat my team but he was he was a good guy he right. It's just it is got punch. I thought reports Oh it's TMZ reporting it. It's gotta be thanks. Yeah but it wasn't. I'm just like are you kidding me. I mean I mean so young too right yeah I mean I remember the year I think it. I can't remember if it was his rookie season. Or maybe his second year here. I was watching the all-star all-star game that year and he was like everyone's saying oh he's the next Michael Jordan and I'm like well. Yeah he kind kind of became that I mean. I don't know I don't know if you want to. I don't know if they if they really will go that far but he was kind of feel he was he was amazing. They think they before we came out. I think I was scanning through one of my feeds on facebook. said that they are going to induct him into the NBA Hall of fame. They're waving voting procedures. The requirements the score that. That's a good. That's there was talk about. Oh you've got the whole. NBA has has to retire. His number. Two Mike WanNa go that far but but I think I think inducting him into the hall of fame you know not going through may not doing the all the hoops whatever. The check boxes is probably a good way to to honor him there and games that were played yesterday there were several tributes years I made which I think is very appropriate and while even one of the writers for Star Wars One of the role. Oh vats from one of the cartoon series was actually kind of a nod. Yes who could be and that I think Mark Hamill actually gave him his Oscar. Yeah her when he won damages Kinda pull supposedly the he two. He was a great big Harry Potter. Fan I need some of the I mean I know him as a player but then finding out all this other information to with you know fan just like the rest of us is to ascend. Yeah and the fact that we're just hearing about it now is like hey you know he kinda. He kept US stuff on the download because he wanted to. You know have his own have a private life private and you know I can I can. I can respect that totally. Yeah it's just it's like because jared came in is like reporting Kobe. Bryant died in a helicopter crash and I'm like I ha- right. Yeah when I saw this wit wi the Yeah poor taste. Yeah like what. Whoever started this joke go away but although apparently the Los Angeles police departments not happy with? TMZ breaking the news even had a chance to tell his family yet. Yeah exactly that's the last way we WANNA have a family notified is. TMZ early in their loved. One has been to. Yeah and I'll passed away. That's why I was like I'm going to wait till it was actually leave confirmed and then started to be confirmed and confirmed. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Unfortunately Kobe was one of those players. I'd never got cit. Not Play in person. Being here in Indiana obviously we're eastern conference so the focus is we play most eastern conference teams during the regular season. I like the width. If we did play the Lakers usually we went to la was always home. gave for them not ought not for us So but I did. I did spend a semester interning for the Pacers and unfortunately during that semester they played the Lakers in Los Angeles so he was He was not a player that ever got to see in play in person. which now it's like Coulda Woulda Shoulda I mean I remember? When I was young? We had tickets to the jazz. I got to go see him. Goes even play the Lakers a couple of times. It was always a big deal when you know those big when those big teams came came to town bound and and yeah like I said there was there was even a quote from him on the Jazz. I can't remember the twitter our twitter account or facebook. They said that Kobe was like He. He was always tough to come play in Salt Lake because because the fans are just so loud and would would heckle him and he was like you know he was he was okay with it because that's just part of part of the game playing in. It actually kind of inspired him to be a better player and I'm like well we'll shoot. If I didn't know that we thought would have shut up and play dead silence and make it really. Yeah seriously better. It's like Dan but no yeah it was. You know it. You know it's all it's all just part part of the game part of how things things work in. And he you know like I said He. I think he inspired the players to play. Better inspired the fans to you know support the team even even more and how you know it just it just kind of feeds off off. We all kind of feed off each other and whether whether like I said he was never my never my favorite because because we played in Malaysia and we wanted to beat them because when we beat them we that that meant something whether it was in the regular season or the playoffs spoke it was it was always. It was always always always a hard fight and always a good a good game to watch when when the Lakers came when when the when we went to La to blame but for sure that one losing Kobe Bryant and you know the fact that he was with his daughter. That's that's Yeah that's a rancher well onto your other o'clock news in this a little less of a Gut Punch but still not fun to yeah so especially on the heels of Neil not that long ago so but Terry Jones of monty python fame among other things has passed away at the age of seventy seven He who was diagnosed of about four years ago with a rare form of dementia and That a downhill Fairly quickly unfortunately. Because this this this this forum it's It's a does just more. Yeah it's very aggressive. It's awful things to the to the brain So but But obviously Terry was one of the the the six you know Founding members of Python course just like when the when they had Lille pass away recently The living pythons are all active on social media Along with their fans and stuff for sharing all all sorts of things so and this is John cleese said to down four to go Coming from anybody else probably would. We insist on please on Sitka considering when they when they did We did short stints in London. A couple years ago You know it was essentially one down five to go at that. Is what the tagline huts so but Terry was When monty Python's flying circus which again and down seemingly more the case and we're going to need to do monty python sooner rather than later his on the list But the obviously the TV maybe show the six of them worked together It was a collaborative but Behind the scenes Terry With some of their other things did a lot of behind the scenes work he worked alongside Terry Gilliam to direct a holy holy grail And then He directed life of Brian and seventy nine and meaning of life hyphen eighty three and then beyond python he did all sorts of work including writing the screenplay for labyrinth. I doing that on our that either. I mean I've watched the documentaries. I must've stepped out. The rule over wasn't paying attention when I was watching the behind the scenes stuff. I'm dislike. How did I not know that this makes sense with some of the humor? Yeah yeah and it's the help hands or down she chose me and of course Tons of memorable characters as part of Monty Python Including Arthur to sheds Jackson Mr Mr Creosote in Meaning of life which is like the one bit in meaning of life that after skip over the little big field queasy He's a he's the he's the like waitress type of lady in the spam sketch reading off the menu breath sausages been spat by spat sausage in spy spy baits and sausages in fact spang baking spag bags fans fangs. Fans fan elites debate inspire He plays Brian's mother in life of Brian so as he's not. Aw Aw no. I don't what I saw something I saw on social media If I try and find it I'll share it somebody cartoon and it's Up Often Heaven Terry coming here. He's come through the pearly gates. Mayors Jesus you know sitting in. Isn't it his throne in heaven. and Jesus going mother. Terry's going Brian. What you've ever seen Brian you get one? That's funny So but yeah Lots lots of memorable Sketches that you can revisit. Of course the Monty Python Movies Woah to botch there so Ah Do something happy. Can't we please. We ate another Trailer her for a clone wars the season seven remaining next month and actually it's a date updates because we talked about Matt previously supposedly the season. At least the first episode was GonNa drop a February seventeenth. This trailer says the twenty first sh which is Friday which probably makes more sense with a Disney pluses for doing things dropping? These Fridays so sort of an early birthday present will be slightly late birthday present for me but still a week on my birthday. So I I I'm okay with that either way but data get this trailer gives us a better idea of where exactly this this. This season is going So looks like we're going could get some AH SOKA DARTH Maul Action Action going against each other. Possibly maybe that could be Kinda cool so I'm excited excited excited for that. So store on my way through rebels. I should be able to get it done before the stops so I could go back to. Who wishes especially considering now at the point of rebels where so Cataldo is part of it so just finish up? Krahn lawyers has goethe rattles It will get done. Yeah you could probably finish clone wars waged the do this and Nangle Watch rebels. And then maybe maybe it'll make more sense. I don't dare. That's true at least as far as the guitar. No plotline it's been bordering mine. Yeah Hey we're used to whip tiny whiny that is true. That is true If anything Lewis says it is not as they can walk at work. Yeah we're going to have so much Dr who when the season's over oh hit we're only yesterday at like I said I should have known better than to cruise the Internet but I have a little bone to pick with radio times. I would have a bone to pick with a certain person who is dancing for so. But we'RE NOT GONNA say anything here we don't want to spoil it for anybody that really worked me ED. Critising really should know better considering how much time they spend in the United States that too and after I see the radio times I never hit instagram. After scroll past the radio time feed three items later. There's a picture from Dr who the site with Jodie whittaker going likeness No spoilers yet could release that I like forty eight hours ago. Yeah really something's stat. There's a reason that we've had on this on this. Spike is twice because it's still an issue eight. That is a rant for when the doctor who season is over because we will we'll put a pin in that we will come back later it yes so still ready. They better not screw up for next week. Yeah that Sh- sure so so anyway. You do updates where we can't access to get notifications. During the time time period. That would work any little MHM moving on so Don't have any feed bat. So Oh I'll go on to this week's topic so after back and forth we are going to be doing a head to head against these spark abandoned Manis again. Who can pick diva predict the most Oscar waters state? This time and the stakes are the same as last time. Winning team picks a movie for the other team to review so if we went to Keep our our title lead to do this well but we don't have a a Bohemian rhapsody to ride the coattails off here. We have art show ready Freddy camp bail us out this year so we might new who which which which which indicates just how confident some of these It that being said I think there's some of these where if you just look at. What has I've been winning up to this point I think there are some that are. It's like okay at this point it's theirs to lose their. There are some cases where when we get into the the specific categories I think there are some where if the academy Adamy continues the way they normally do then certain winners are going Loyd to happen however if they wanted to shake things up a little argue but could be made for some others others. Yeah so it just kind of depends but I gotTA ballots. Let's And I may. I've made my picks just like just like we did last year. Obey my picks. I've got CIANCI's picks so we've got five. Yeah and then will at your guises and then from there it's majority rule If we find find ourselves at an impasse which is possible. If we go somebody goes to to to someone's an outlier than Christie contoss. Die So yes so I will go. It will go through the categories as yes. They are on this ballots and Before we name our picks if there's anything the relevant that I think should be mentioned I will do so so so doing by off the printed one or their website website. I'm going off on the print. One that okay okay. 'cause I have the printed went up the I just noticed the website. They're in a different order. So yeah now. I'm I'm doing enough of this. So our first category is accurate. A supporting role and the nominees are Tom. Hanks a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins to pope's out. But you know in the Irishman Joe pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Would've Brad Pitt Has won four this category in the for the Golden Globe end the SAG award. Yeah very slow. That being said Chauncey pick Tom Tom. Hanks I picked Brad Pitt. I wanted to vote Tom. Hayes but yeah I hide you go. I was the other words. This is like the heart and the brains like one. Vote Tom Hayes. But I know Bradford's in winning. Yeah so it's like idea. Do we want to win the game or do some pick to make ourselves the others. The other thing too is once upon a time in Hollywood the Oscars love movies about Hollywood. Yes yea you're kind of you know. Even la La land notwithstanding a couple some several years ago. Although Emma Emma Stone won the actress trysts award for that one. So maybe going with the going with the the the actors or actresses for this particular one would be a good a good strategy edgy. I don't I don't know that I I have a different idea for who's going to win best picture which will get to that one when we get to it. But ed I'm guessing I'm going to go with Brad Pitt. I'm with you Britney. I'm like the heart says Tom Hanks but WANNA win. I just WanNa Watch cats or day. I and Brad Pitt too. 'CAUSE THEY WANNA see Tom Hanks in L. A.. But then I'm just. I'm kind of looking at the Irish I think and well of course Easy Godfather Irish twist Brad Pitt with just the fact they love. You know the Hollywood glam no matter what air I to actors In that it the need for that category. I wonder if they'll split the vote for that one. So Good Babe. I actually watched the Irishman last night. And it just reminded me why I don't like like mob movies kind of Lake. The Irish version of the other. I've never seen the Godfather because I love movie. I see a half hours long for one thing. It's like it's so he'll chauncey afterwards it's like these like these gangster mob movies. It's like they spend more time talking about who needs to be wacked. Then the time actually whacked the person they're always eating at a restaurant threat and gorge involved. Yes and they're speaking Italian to each other. It's like like I get it. It's supposed to be based on a true story. Suppose delays of biography. This guy that was part of the mall back in the day the ORCS for Hoffa's supposedly Russell he knows what happened to Jimmy Hoffa but the the end of the day. It's so now my cup of tea so anyway so our vote is going to be. Brad Pitt Roquette make a hairstyling. Nineteen eighteen seventeen bombshell joker judy or malefic mistress of Evil Chauncey malefic. FISTER I take Judy. ooh ooh I Oil ally have to go off his like Osos Trailers I will live nineteen seventeen. Yeah I'M GONNA go with nineteen seventeen as well. I'm MM trump. I'm tossed between Judy. Nineteen seventeen I think nineteen seventeen. Just you know period action piece this yeah. They end period pieces for these categories. Yeah do but since it's a period the movie as opposed to something like last year like favorite fa right now but okay okay on this case majority rule so nine thousand nine hundred seventeen and then for costume design. We have the Irishman in Georgia. Rabbit Joker little women and once upon a time in Hollywood which this one was tough to transhipping joker. I want with little women. Because it's the most period I went little into for basically the recent halt. I don't have actually any late last year. IC- issue with into the movies Trailers probably at least look like. Yeah so this one. I am not really sure I'm not to go with joker I think I think I think jokers probably gonNA clean up a a little more than we think but then again I don't know I keep going back and forth but yet joker for this one. I'm Christiane kind of in the same boat is you. I'm joker little women. I think have been little women. It's it's it's it's tough because just with how much polarity joker has just like. Is that GONNA help help. Stem Oscar wins or is it GonNa Backfire and hurt it in once. Once upon a time in Hollywood could be a dark horse for that because the it it they they did a really good job of getting getting the period costumes right even yeah historical. It's still a very distinct time periods. Where the clothing as a very distinct look tear zero? It's so true but generally the academy they like period costumes. And that's what I usually give. Awards is to but there isn't really anything that's like like the favorite or Elizabeth or something that's a little women is like the oldest to us so oh now But that being said as To for joker three three for little women. So let's go to the little woman so cool. It will save documentary feature American factory story the Cave the edge of democracy for SOMMA and honey land this one. I rolled the dice because I have the idea about it. The dice game me a four so the fourth one down for Sama Sama. I don't know I don't know what do you think about this. One is based on the descriptions That they give on the the academy website site I just went with American factory just because it seems like something that the category. It's about a car factory going under so honey one about just curiosity I don't remember Hillary's sounded pulling it up this girl that cannot I can't pronounce her name or this lady lives with her ailing mother in the mountains of Macedonia Oni Making a living cultivating using ancient beekeeping traditions when an unruly family moves in next door. What at first seems like a bomb for solitude becomes a source of tension as a to want onto practice beekeeping that was full vote Lake tyzack another whole client live trying to keep trying to save the bees? If that was what so you know I would have picked that. Yeah find out. Yeah I'm GonNa go and it was. It was it was a big word award winner at Sundance is what it says but a sundance and the academy or well. I don't know there. Yeah you would you would think with Sundance being it basically in my backyard. I would know more about that Sundance tastelessly. I went with American factory. Chauncey went with the edge of democracy. I'M GONNA go with the American fact the factory one. Okay okay sounds good. I was I was not. I was not committed to my pick one way or the other the sound editing nineteen seventeen Ford versus Ferrari joker once upon a time in Hollywood or star wars rents a skywalk. It's like one of the few times something we care about POPs up in the only one. I've actually seen so doing what I know. What sounds like yeah CIANCI? I about with both where it was nineteen seventeen. I'M GONNA go with one thousand nine hundred seventeen. It feels like it feels like that one is is going to pick up a lot. It is it is already picked up a a good number of awards at other A places for things like editing and cinematography and like that so the technical stuff And this one I mean my heart wanted moving away. I was thinking about it. This is like the Ferrarra you've got the cars in nineteen seventeen warm will be. Those are my two hundred narrowed it down I rate on the happy with with you and the Russell Nineteen seventy-nine Gregory about that Farrar the Ford versus Ferrari. I was GONNA say like so many people that I that I know and respect both take on line and in real life people of seen Ford versus Ferrari. And I'm like I need it names Sung. It's praise like I need to see that movie. But they've all said that people have gushed about one thousand nine hundred seventeen as well since people are like well. I need to go see that one onto so thin really good which is kind of Nice. It's like hey good movies piece to see I would yeah better than seen crappy movies all over the place. Uh So nineteen seventy-nine sounds like your pun intended. I don't judge Jewish sound mixing nineteen seventeen at Astra Ford versus priority joker or once upon a time in Hollywood. Hollywood all nineteen seventy nine. I nineteen seventeen chauncey picked at astor. Because he's he's actually seeing that one. Oh that's what you said. It was depressing. Well it's not gonna at that that's going off my to my to watch list even though it really wasn't on there to begin with but he's GonNa space kick so that's as Real Madrid. A recognized the jury so so yeah. I'm looking at sound. Editing and sound mixing categories. They just US yeah. They swapped out one space movie for a different space movie. Yeah today usually editing and mixing the same movie will win both both. Yeah so we had a a a thing until you go nineteen seventeen same production design nine one thousand nine hundred seventeen the Irishman Joe Rabbit. Once time in Hollywood or parasites Johnson both picked once upon a time in Hollywood. which if 'cause production design this sets all the stuff that gives the film like it's low A.? And I mean they did a heck of a job with Once silent Hollywood filming around Modern Day Los Angeles and making it look like nineteen sixties Los Angeles the list. So I will give him that I was out I just seventeen and again Warm as well like more movies well part part of it too is I mean. I know everyone's heard about you know it's film to look like it's one one big shot so you kind of think about it. 'cause I 'cause I've this part of I want to see Mike. How did they do that? I I get those shots. Just right they have to have everything just so and I'm just ready to go so I kind of feel like that's going to be a huge part of it too so I yeah I'm gonNA say nineteen seventeen for yeah that yeah doc. Even though that arguments more cemetery which I guess we'll get to eventually but yet you still have to have all the all the pieces in the sets in the actors offers in everybody in place in order to pull that off. Yeah Yeah Yeah it has. Funding is like I said it's recent cinematography awards It's picked up one production design award. The one thousand nine hundred seventeen has once time in Hollywood has picked up a couple so so so go either way think this one could be potential. Toss up so we'll say a case can be made for was time in Hollywood because because it has one more Profanity Zion Award. Seventeen shoe you've come loose comey convinced should I Yeah I'll switch my vote on it as I have been mode you can say. Hey Yeah I haven't seen it so I've seen Irishman to Than those to those I've seen so so we will hopefully steering All wrong so we'll we crazy. We'll be like Rachel I you know I didn't. We didn't have to change our mind. Exactly was our choice International features ones should be pretty straightforward thing Corpus Christi from Poland. Poland honey land from North Macedonia Les Miserables for France Painting. Glory from Spain or parasite from South Korea which a parasite has has won every thing foreign language. Everywhere says yeah I was. I don't know anything about parasite other than it's been winning and winning and winning and winning so I'm like saying this this this. This year's Roma is what it is like just took over last year as a International or foreign film so apologies these other all these other movies. yeller probably GONNA lose actress of a Supporting Role Kathy Bates for for Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage stories Charlotte or Hanson in Georgia Rabbit. Florence pugh and. Little women or Margot robie bombshell Chauncey Pick Scarlett Dr Hanson. I Pick Laura dern because she's already won the SAG and the Golden Globe for this. Yeah I was I was looking at that am I. Laura dern is going to get this one yet yeah. That's my thinking to spread love to see Kathy Bates Pelota darkhorse her Richard Unusual. I knew it it. Libya Komen did last year. I'M GONNA GO Laura dern. I just think it's funny. That his Scarlett Johansson she's nominated for marriage story in the leading role category. She's is also here for Joe. Joe Yeah Yeah my Gosh. I Dunno at just amused me. For some reason I find I find humor in odd blazes anyway. Animated Short film Dissenter Hair love kibble bull memorable or sister. Johnson that both Kit Bull though which is the only one that I've seen. It's a Disney short. That made me cry. It's the one about the the little tiny little kitten befriends hit old Chained up in and is not treated the nicest. It's adorable but it's so sad at the same time I I have actually heard a lot of really good things about hair love and I'm like that's when I need to find because it looks adorable ally the shorts if you if you search heart you can usually find them. Model lines are more ice. Remember Disney you know they put kit ball out there like months ago And watch again just like tears. Bs I have heard good things about her love to but I've not seen it. I thought great things about both. I alternate kit bowl the Disney one. Probably the only thing Disney walk away with. Yeah Animated Feature Film How to Train Your Dragon the hidden world. I lost my body. Klaus House missing link or toy story for a missing link when the goals lobe. Yeah it did I. I actually watched over the weekend. I I did this SOC- award-winning in it. But again what I see in what use it goes as always woke so the what I what I think. 'cause it stop motion animation right. Yeah I think that's kind of what That's 'cause 'cause everybody does has CGI basically anymore. So I think I think nowadays stop motion kind of Seymour's. Oh I WANNA say Esoteric but I don't think that's the right word. I'm looking for more unique. I guess they're like Oh. Wow allow you. Actually you know put in a lot of work to to make this look good rather than just do it in a computer so I kind of think. It's a lot of physical labor. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I mean not not to disparage you know computer computer animators but I mean stop motion is. That's impressive I don't care who you. Yeah if you can make stop motion. I don't care who you are. Wh what movie. It is what time period. You're making it in you know it's still pretty cool so I say missing link. Yeah go missing link to it. Oh aw missing link visual effects. Nineteen seventeen vendors. Endgame the Irishman the Lion King or star wars the rice skywalker outwit both Within game so yeah yes. Yeah I feel like in game I mean yeah there it is. I mean. This isn't a return the king sort of situation but I kinda. NFL like endgame will get Get something just because it's the the capstone on the whole marvel the whole. MCA You experiment. Experiment and how well it did. I'm like they end. The visual effects were amazing. Especially that April it just her house full. This movie was was like a big old visual mess. Yes looks it looks it looks amazing and it it just like it got they got so many characters in there so many so many everything. So yeah I kinda feel like game is GonNa. It's gotTa get something mine is Yeah come come on Academy at least at least acknowledged acknowledged that much. Yeah yes all right film editing. Ford Rituals Ferrari the Irishman in Georgia. Rabbit joker or parasites. I think this could go any number number of ways so another one I feel like at least one of these somewhat Yeah Is kind of annoyed. One thousand nine hundred nineteen didn't get put in here because obviously there is some editing that goes into whatever it is but I don't know I'm like I I say four. Four versus Ferrari has won best editing. A couple of times. It's not one a whole lot. Go just in general But the few awards has won have been editing so But so is the Irishman. It's the jokers not really one technical. It's mostly acting so Abbott parasite has also won everything so so okay. I'm bringing out the dice for this one here His I picked the Irishman Chauncey Chauncey So well I rolled my d-6 twice. I ended up with a three twice. The third one on the list is Joe Joe Rabbits so sure. Yeah ooh sights on my dice that that hates me. Yeah I have a set of dice. It just totally fail me on. Every every game I played I have banished them the Pretty neutral die. So we'll have the documentary short subjects in the absence learning to skateboard in a war zone. If your girl life overtakes me St Louis Superman and walk run. CHA-CHA CIA housing both picked St Louis Superman 'cause based again based on the description. It seemed like something it's very Americana. Yeah politics that sort of thing that the academy would probably go for so sure I go out with. Yeah that sounds like it went to me. A Lewis on sounds good to me to a live action short film a sister Brotherhood Nafta football club the neighbors widow in Syria and after reading descriptions I had no clue I why would really dragged me to wonder the other so I ended up picking Sirri-a but that I have no justification Chauncey just picked Nafta football club because I think so high picnic book because I like the name of. Yeah it's it's memorable and that's what my dice he said so sure there wasn't anything jumped out like last year was although that was not got a short that was a documentary short documentary short but the period ended sentence though. Yeah Yeah that one. That one was the one that put us over the top. Like wait a minute. We may x window thing say the adapted screenplay The Irishman judge a rabbit joker little women or the two popes Johnson. I both little women. Women's that's the one I went to. Yeah I I was GonNa go with joker what we can do little women I will not was he in joker in little women and I think a little bit might eat out. been if little women's GonNa get like any other than the costume design if it's going to get any recognition because they didn't really bother to give the director a nomination so maybe he didn't need the spring alive so Original screen play Nineteen seventeen knives out. Marriage story wants pot time in Hollywood or parasite Johnson. I'll take knives out. We've seen it. We both liked it. This is one of those that I think we're going. The vote was more heart overhead. A I think it's GonNa be a toss up between once time in Hollywood and maybe Paris. Yeah I I don't know how likely a foreign film could potentially win right in this category so I can see them giving it to Tarantino having I don't Dink's NC I'm tossed I'm torn between knives Dow in once upon a time in Hollywood. I mean terence terrace deal with Hollywood dig into the gap. That's punt team in Hollywood just because it won the Oaks Tarintino. Yeah yeah once upon time like to go to knives out just because it'd be nice it's like hey look Ryan Johnson actually can. You can't right yeah can do something good to ear real to your original work there but yeah I think I think this is. I think they're just at this point. They're they're kissing Tarantino's but so if somehow parasite was to win it would be a be a shakeup. But I'd could be a sheet that of us. I mean it would be because it's a foreign language has generally if a I own gets nominated In the foreign language category and also gets into the big like Big categories like screenplay. Okay Director Best Picture. It'll usually win best foreign language and not anything else. Yeah I I I mean you had been you exceptions but S- I could see that would be like the big surprise. This year is like Oh. Hey we're gonNA throw everyone for a loop and and give parasite eight other awards other than international film but yeah. It doesn't happen very often. Yeah uh-huh cinematography nine hundred. Seventeen the Irishman joker the lighthouse. And what's time Hollywood. Okay I think on principle they they're gonNA give this to nineteen seventeen. Yeah yeah sorry guys I mean look at how look look at how good saving private Ryan cleaned up. I think that one year I mean yes a goal. The original scored nineteen seventeen. Joker little women marriage story and Star Wars arises skywalker as much as I love to see John Williams win another Oscar. A think this is going to go to joker just because it has been winning. I I was GonNa say this thing as was love to be wrong and see Williamson that I think is GonNa be joker broker more star wars. You know considering last. Yeah Yeah Yeah well. And the Lady Hill Hilbert Guan. Can't say her yeah hell did Joker Helder Yeah. I recently watched Chernobyl which is. Hbo Mini Series. She also did the score for that. One Oh God. She's amazing. Of course that that that's that mini mini series is fantastic anyway. But yeah and she won for. She wanted Golden Globe there anyway. So yeah I'm like you you know you're you're you're alright lady. I could figure out how to say. You're you're I mean your your your last name but keep winning keep keep doing stuff jeff in movies and TV in your area. She's very. She's breaking glass ceilings. As far as what does so well me she does she deserves. It is very good at what she does original song. I'm GonNa love me again from rocket man. I can't let you throw yourself away or started for India known her frozen to I'm standing with you breakthrough or stand up from heriot's though and I'm GonNa love me again won the Golden Globe. So I to me. It's going to be a toss up between rocket the rocket man one and frozen solid rocket man. Yeah I'M GONNA go with rocket man. I mean part part of me. He's like dude. It's a movie about Elton John. Elton John wrote a original song for the movie. Right sure yes. Yeah I think just Terron Sing Dance Asu man now so I I I get it so it's a very good song. It's definitely an Elton John Song. So now it's fits right in with the rest of the The songs in the movie so taint him with in the CAIN. Yeah and all right the big ones here director. A Bong Jun Hope for parasite Mendez from eighteen. Seventeen Todd Phillips for Joker Marsk or Sese for the Irishman or Quentin Tarantino for. Once upon a time in halted I applaud. This could be the need for Sam Mendes for Nineteen Seventy Yup taste. He won the Golden Globe for that Tarantino and Tino has ever winning though and then again for Scorsese. Yep a parasite is kind of a dark horse where it's not likely that they will give it to him. But it is a possibility. See it would be unprecedented for a foreign language films Presuming that parasite wins for international feature. It would be unprecedented for the director to win. Best Director but he has been picking up a lot of best director awards outside the United States for parasite so How many of those deeper at people at these four you know outside of the US or even some within the US At very how many of these people have any sort of votes with the academy because he's won best director at like The Austin Film Critics Association or the Boston Society of film critics. It's like some of its. US Some of its foreign. So I ah yeah it could be. I think it's I think it's a toss up between Tarantino and San Mendez. Yeah parasite as the dark horse in US us. So I think we could almost flip a coin between Tarantino and Mendez. Thank you have I have no. I have no idea honestly no clue so we WANNA WANNA roll dyson he Okay so so so evens Tarantino odds is Sam Mendes Okay here we go. I'm rolling a eighty five. So nineteen seventeen all right as the dice have spoken. We'll I'll throw throw the dice out the window. All right actor leading role Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Leonardo DiCaprio wants time in Hollywood out of driver for marriage story. Lucky Extra Joker in Jonathan Christ for the two posts hosts and Exists to lose. I mean the cameras already got his Oscar so finally it it can go back to ignoring him. Yes yeah it's been been collecting left in white right pretty much For for this. He's not the sort of the Rami. Malik this year. Where props not talking to win? Best picture but he's going to get the the actor Dad Yeah but I'm kind of torn so it's like yeah again. It's it's not my type of movie and Probably Never GonNa Watch it so I have take people's those words for for his performance I've only ever seen Joaquin Phoenix in. Walk the line. There's I've ever seen I know. He's he's a halfway decent actor part of the kind of doesn't want him to win win for everything else but part of he does not want him to win the Oscar for even though this is best leading actress in as opposed to supporting I think although I could be wrong but there's just something the thing about him potentially winning an Oscar for this playing this character when Heath Ledger one in posthumously even the same movie and it's a different interpretation of the character but for some reason it just rubs me the wrong way these potentially a walk away with an Oscar for playing the same character. Yeah even if it's completely different than than heath ledger eat ledgers portrayal in the dark. It was just so good. Yeah I Rachel I in DC person. Well I'm not. I'm not even like I was because I was I was jared. Wanted to know if I wanted to go see joker and I'm really not a joker fan. I mean I understand. People love him. Him and people love the interpretation. And I'm like you know good on you. You know bless you. You're wonderful that you love this. I've never really understood. The joker like like why he's so popular or it's just never been my cup of tea. Of course I prefer Superman over Batman. Anyway that's me me but I can. I can kind of understand. Maybe maybe there's kind of an element of because he's ledgers. Joker was so good. Now they can do do this sort of portrayal in a major a major film so so now it's kind of building on that same sort of it seems sort of foundation. I guess so now he can actually have his own. The joker can actually have his own movie and and can it can be a nomination. I'm an H. A. Nominee for the leading role rather than it. Yeah thing for a a you know us US nerds where a lot of the stuff that we we get excited about gets relegated to the technical categories. So it's a good thing comic this book movies But Yeah I think it's just a sentimental thing that it's just like yeah you can i. I totally understand coming from Rachel. I totally get it. Plus I've Adam driver has kind of a soft spot in my heart for Adam driver driver just because things I've found out about him in recent years. I'm like dude. You're an awesome guy. You need to have some cool things happen to you. But I also think he's GonNa get it is chance later too so it would you want but I yeah I think working Phoenix. He's GonNa. Yeah Yeah Ah Alright actress in a leading role. Cynthia Areso for Heriot's Scarlett Johansson for marriage story A serious Ronin for little women. Charlie's therapy for bombshell Renee Zellweger for Judy so Chauncey went Hush Charlie Farren Guessing Zellwegger she's already won the SAG in the globe in the drama Website they separate comedy and drama but she did when the Golden Globe in trauma and Kademi they do love bio movies. Elise true I when I first I heard they were doing a movie about Harriet. Tubman is like I want to see it. I haven't seen it. I still want to but I'm kind of I'm kind of sad. It hasn't really gotten more buzz. I guess but I have no idea if it would if if sent the revolt would win anyway. But I'm going to have to go with Renee Zellweger further reason you said Rachel bio-pic Judy Garland new. Yeah Yeah if all right last certainly certainly not least the Big Daddy Sure got a This year so nineteen seventeen in Florida versus Ferrari the Irishman Jo Jo. ravitch joker little women marriage story once Potanin. Hollywood or parasites sir. I had seen none of these. I wanted to two of them but as of now well in. It probably doesn't help anybody but as far as what movies have already. One things Because the Golden Globes splits splits and separates drama versus comedy So nine hundred. Seventeen one goal for drama once time in Hollywood and one for comedy. Well I'm going to go off of Parricide is your dark horse. Yeah I well this is my thing. La La land didn't win when when it was nominated for best picture even though they tried to psych us out and say that it wasn't yes so I kinda think back I think the gut if you just base it off of historical Because usually well the thing is we picked Sam Mendes for best director Statistically best director and best picture don't match go together they usually don't go together But I'm just thinking nineteen seventeen could be like this this decades Saving Private Ryan. Maybe and so. There's a precedent for war war movies. I WANNA get hung up on. Oh you know we pick the director so we won't get the best picture. 'cause 'cause we gotta think a two it might like Sam Mendes might not win that one. Yeah but I really think it has was nineteen. seventy-nine has a good chance of winning best picture. I've been speaking Mike Glitz. Let's let's go for the points here. The only reason for that yeah. It's like my knee jerk. Reaction is nineteen seventeen so seventeen like the biggest I kinda Time since I got the the ballot is also. This is a really good reason but someone I wanna see the most less less wind when you're actually interested in it you're like hey hey this is going to be a good movie right. Yeah what if got what's won. Best picture the last few years. We don't have like like that. We don't have a of moonlight or a green book. Yeah the film on the rest. So if you're just thinking back the last couple of years and like Christie said la La land was time in Hollywood you could kind of consider that would be kind of the equivalent and La La land did not run. Yeah so but puts more or wait to nineteen seventeen. But then I'm you know like I said this is. This is one of those where academy sticks with with the status quo. Statistically odds are is gonNA be nineteen seventeen if they decided they really wanted to shake AP Parasite would be your darkhorse lights. Yeah we are they. They're eating. We like it. Their foreign language film in also best picture are very very slim. Yeah I mean I mean they they they may want they the academy way May WanNa knock us all over with a feather and still in and give it to parasite just because they want to. I guess pat themselves on the back like look. We gave it to a foreign movie. Yeah yeah that's Nick Bender because I mean not that it's probably doesn't deserve observe the all the awards at this getting you know. I'm not going to watch it because that it's the psychological type movies I just. I can't handle them right away. So but I mean obviously if you look at just wikipedia for each of the movies nominated for best picture and look at the awards at each one. Parasite has the longest list. So you know and and there's been enough complaints about the Oscars show whites and they're not yet. There's not enough diversity nonsmokers and it's like if they really wanted to give you know be able to point their fingers and say look we can be diverse and give it to parasites. I could see maybe doing that. But I don't know if the voting voting body for you have to you have to the academy gives a crap about that Ari but I'm just calling it as as I see it. I know yeah well as the as the as the voting body for the academy chefs as the generation shifts That that is a possibility. But I don't know if it shifted enough yet so that there's like people our age and younger that are eligible to vote for the academy like you and it's like if they can't even get right in the nominations. They're probably not going to do it. What it comes the actual voting I I guess is my point? It's like if they can't even if they can't even you know get away from just you know nominating the same people over and over and over again it much havoc a old white dudes get everything to is you kind of have to think like how much do they pay attention to. You know the the the AH stuff on twitter or your social media or any of this sort of thing so I don't know awards. Awards are tricky matter What Kinda Yeah I get the end of the day? Do we really care that much but we want to win. Yes if we weren't gonNA competition I'd have been like whatever yes but because because we're competing against him Spark of madness again. Yeah we're kind of making this thing. It's like okay. I guess maybe next year I'll actually get off my butt and go see some movies or maybe not. I don't know I tell myself that last year in. We said how well out when we actually went last year I was actually. I was actually going to go pay attention to movies this last year for Patio but this obstacle but as of today I see for movies of this entire list of all WHOA movies I wasn't eight until yesterday when I watched the Irishman now at nine so is this year we didn't go see movies his full? Stop my par- my own is is. I just went and saw vendors and game twelve million times instead. So we'll see you go to the movies to have fun. Not Not not as a homework assignment. Yeah well do. Fun Is relative considering his also partially torturing myself watching Tony Stark. Die Over. Hell okay no you know what I mean I know I mean I think I think twice. We went we. You went to the movies and we went and saw because they have They had studio Ghibli Fest It's like every month they would do a Zaki comb at our local megaplex and we went and saw spirited away and princess-mononoke which obviously are not brand new movie but that was is two of our outings to the theatre which I think we a grand total we. I think we went and saw five movies all year year and two of them were were studio. GHIBLI LIFA A lot of movies last year but they were all like the EMC in Star Wars. Yeah the Oh so anyway back the best picture actually picked dictate what we want me to votes for. Nineteen seventeen so far three okay. Did I vote yes okay. I was like I'm pretty sure I did. But we got off on a tangent. That's three so that's let's that's majority okay last one so all Eric Watch Tarantino will get it. 'cause yeah real quick recap here so we make sure all on the same page age here so are essential fix as a team are a actor in supporting role for the Brad Pitts Makeup hairstyling Nice. He'd seventeen gene custom design a little women documentary feature American factories sound editing nineteen seventeen sound mixing nineteen seventeen production design. What's time in Hollywood?

Okay Yeah but it doesn't happen very often if it does. Well we'll either we'll we'll either lose or we'll have something interesting to talk about.

The all new coming of age film about a ten year old German boy named Joe Joe Bessler in the waning days of World War. Two Joe Lives alone with his caring mother. Rosie played by like Scarlett Johansson. And he's firmly. In the nationalist grasp of Nazi Germany. Thanks in part to his relationship to his imaginary friend at of Hitler played by.

Mackenzie and while Georgia's instinct is Turner in. He's persuaded that doing so would get his mother killed over time.

I had an imaginary friend coming in so much trouble. Take time to some growing up to ten year olds from celebrating war and talking politics. I wish more of a young boys had your blind fanaticism. Did he the juice might towers. You know if you saw one just like us. Josiah rabbit by TAIKA WAITITI whatever. You think. I saw this tiff. I wrote about it I talked on. NPR about it. So I I feel like I'm repeating myself feel like I've been on this hamster wheel for a a couple months now but I was pretty mixed on it like mixed to negative but not for the reasons that made a controversial not because of Tekoa. Td Playing Hitler. Not because of making trying to make Hitler funny all. I will say When I saw this a tiff I saw it back back with terrence malick a hidden life which is a twelve twenty hour? At least I'm show twenty hours exploration of needed to be. Ah God it's so long It's a terrible if they long and incredibly depressing exploration of the destruction of the life of an Austrian conscientious this objector by beloved slow crushing wheels of Hitler's Germany. and seeing the films back to back it's pretty much like you said in the in the first I episode with not reminding people what Hitler did because it makes it harder to take the comedy seeing Joe Giradi as this you know kind of like light hearted. Oh Oh Hitler is a like a wacky character. And then the just experiencing in a very large scale like the agonies of what he actually did people what his policies assisted to people What the heck did people really takes the humor? Out of it Nonetheless that wasn't really my problem with the film. My problem with the film was first. I that it starts as a pretty fun like unconventional playful. Kind of WES. Anderson Comedy Not Not just because of the setting is so reminiscent of Monroe Kingdom But because of the lateness and quirkiness and fussiness really of the setting of the the humor. There's a very you know new-zealand deadpan comedy that takeaway. Td has perfected That's very cultural Roland. Very specific to him that plays out Throughout the first third of the movie and I really enjoyed it once we get into the business with a girl in the attic suddenly. We're in a film that I've seen many many times and I'm pretty tired of I was fine with it when it was the boy in the striped pyjamas. I thought it was pretty badly done when it was the book thief but this idea of the German kid and the Jewish kid in the attic that needs to be protected or really just the friendship between a German kid a and a Jewish child has been done over and over and over as a way to explore Nazi Germany and the human cost of it and it just felt very trait to me. It felt very familiar and it felt overdone and sentimental intrigue really in a way that I didn't appreciate I thought Scarlett Johansson character was interesting and had a lot going on for her and the dynamic there was interesting so then the movie just kind of boots her out of the story and at the point where it does was it just starts becoming increasingly implausible for me that Joe Joe is able to keep any of this up the links that he goes to to keep his secret under control it all just kind of falls apart into like cliche and familiar mawkish sentiment for me and it just it really didn't live up to the potential either of the first third of the movie or just of every Tekoa T- film that I've seen up until now which I don't disagree disagree with some of the things you're saying tosh although I think I was more positive over all than you I really liked Scarlett Johansson in this movie and I found the mother son relationship they're much more engaging than the one between Joe and Elsa and was not particularly enamoured of how how the Joe Elsa a relationship resolved but I also wouldn't really go so far as to say that the movie becomes mawkish in the end I think that it remains fairly audacious up through the invasion by allied forces at the very end and setting aside the whole like we dance because we're free button which I think is definitely where you know treads until life is beautiful territory and in not pleasing way ah I think there is enough of that sort of deadpan humor that you're talking about juxtaposed with real images of horror through the end of the film that it keeps that sort of tonal tension going to the end in a way that that made it work for me I don't have no problems with his movie but I I overall enjoyed it I think what td is a very interesting assured filmmaker and that comes through here as for like the controversial aspects of this this movie. I'm you guys both side at Taffer. Just-you Tasha a just Tasha. I saw I just saw recently. Okay it seems like a lot of the narrative about at this being controversial came out of tiff. But I'm kind of having trouble putting my finger on specifically what the controversy is meant to be other than the fact that this is yet another another movie about a funny Hitler. which has this pairing shows? It's not the first one of so. It almost feels like the quote quote unquote controversy around. This movie is maybe a little bit of a marketing thing happening. But I would. I would like to be convinced from you. Know people who who have been perhaps more engaged in the conversation from an earlier. Point like wear. The controversies comes from here is the Sam Rockwell character. I I feel like it could maybe be there. I mean my understanding was it's not. It's not so much a controversy. As that's one of the few words we have in the English language for something that people disagree three about like our favorite word for it It was polarizing People critics and viewers alike either tend to love it or ten to hate it and and there are different reasons for that pope. Part of it is just a lot of people just find it offensive. Just find it taking lately things that should not be taken lightly the NPR show. That I was on To discuss this one of the other panelists was somebody highly placed at the Holocaust Museum and they brought him in just specifically to talk about like like the history of making light of the Holocaust in film and sort of where the dividing line Falls between making fun of victims and making fun of Like like big emotions. Essentially where where the line is between making fun of Hitler and making fun of the people who suffered under him so like part of it is definitely. He's sort of based around. Is it okay to joke about this. Which I think we're in a cultural moment where we're questioning that more than we ever have? Before but part it just flat out comes from the the sensation that a lot of people walked out of this movie like angry and resentful and hating it. And there doesn't seem this seems to be one of those films where there's not a ton of middle ground For people who are like that was an experience. Yes that's my reaction. I'm perplexed by people who would take the stance like Oh. This is just a offensive. I hate this thing. It's just it because I to me my issue with the film is that it's kind of weak sauce. I don't think it's nearly as provocative as it could be and should should be and it certainly doesn't live up to needing like a tagline like an anti hate satire. It's early a satire and I didn't really feel like it's agendas is necessarily anti hater feeling. It's it's almost like base covering on the part of the studio but I don't feel like the film is at all like you film. Life is beautiful. It's like Oh yeah okay. This film mm-hmm is really going for something and you can certainly see understand why people would react strongly against a movie like that but I mean there's a lot of sobering moments in this film. I mean you could say well you can if you can if you're going to say well it's minimizes Nazi Germany. I mean come on. This kid's mom is like hanging in the Public Square. I mean this is not this film delivers livers in that respect it. May It delivers the fear. That people are feeling I mean to me one of the scenes. The film I really like is when Stephen Merchant turns up with the Gestapo won't start searching the house and questioning people and you know everyone's making with how Hitler's and whatnot Is Kenny is coming down now. He stand on the landed usual. Very excited here sorry cute. He's become super social. He's not on a shy boy he's a little Brat so let's go back to that scene. I was talking about and hopefully Julius will Not Distract US too much more so yeah so so. That scene really captured what. I was missing for the rest of the movie which is a real tension between danger and comedy is. It's a very funny scene but there is that threat of just like this thing could unravel. It could be terrible for everybody. I mean because if this girl is found and this is that's bad for Joe and that's bad for the girl and that's bad for the the mother I guess who are going to be bad for anyway and I that was absent for the rest of the film of founded the film to be acute which which is not a lot of the time and then clawing for some of the other time. And it just didn't deliver for me a very strong experience. Either way I just. I felt needed to provoke more than it did. I just feel like I mean for me. Scarlett Johansson's death just in land at all it's meant to be This moment moment of of shocking loss and grief and power and for me. I'm just not sure that I can feel those kinds of emotions coming shortly on the heels of an extended in lengthy joke about where the Queen Julie's her eggs disbelievers so over the top in so many ways about misperceptions Russians of the other and what happens to the brains of people who are steadily fed a diet of propaganda. It's meant to be ridiculous like other things that Joe by rabbit believes are just so over the top and ludicrous in the same way that gene wilder and zero mastel seem to be in different movies. I I like rebel Wilson and Scarlett Johansson in this movie lake. Just they're they're on completely different planets in terms of what what their characters are trying to do like where they where they land How they work and I just for me like I enjoyed the comedy aspects of the film fine but pretty much any attempts to to head into hardcore heavy duty sentiment? I was like you're just in the wrong movie for this. You've set up apprentice. Who's in the right movie and not Scarlett Johansson? I rebel Wilson is in a completely different from everybody else including Sam Rockwell Allen. The Allen and I don't know that I would like that movie she she maybe she's in the producer's like she's definitely a completely different variety of movie of of comedy than an awful lot of this movie is operating I to me it. Just the whole movie feels disjointed. It's a whole bunch of parts that to me don't fit together at all you know who uh-huh definitely in Taiko T. movie and this movie Tekoa team yes but also archie gates who plays his friend Yorkie. I Dam Sterling. He's just such a quintessential like Taika waititi child character. You know and that aspect of his voice just comes out in that character very much for the wilder people type type of Kid I feel like there's a separate movie this just everything he's doing during Ms Film and it's a hunt for the wilder people type movie And it's much better than this one. I I mean I love hunt for the wilder people. It's one of the few movies that I can without reservation like recommend too cynical bitter twisted film critics and like people want something safe to show their grandma or their kids. It's like it's just to me. It's just perfect family friendly movie and I wanted this to be as different from like pass is total cost to movies as hunt. For Wilder people is from you know most most family friendly uplift movies and I feel like he's trying for that like I give him points for ambition and I give him points for trying to break out outside the box and do something unconventional and something. Something daring that. Most people wouldn't go into. I just don't think he's doing it very well. Well I mean I think what he's doing is something. He's done several times before it's making a coming of age movie. You know what this really is is about the character of Joe. Joe And it's it's just like wrapped in these Nazi Germany trappings. That ended up injecting a lot more elements into the film that are maybe less successful. But like the heart of this movie is like jo-jo figuring out himself outside of an outside role model or force you know whether it's Hitler his mother also like he's kind of projecting onto these other figures in in his life and on the way to figuring out what he wants and what kind of person person he is and it doesn't really and I think like looking at it as a coming of age movie. The ending doesn't land for me because it just it feels. He's like at cheats. It takes a shortcut to resolution for that character. You know with the were free and we dance nonsense so I think maybe that's where the sort of sense so there's not enough. Danger is coming from because it seems like it's telling one type of story but it's actually telling a very conventional kind of story that's just kind it. has this wrapping around it. I just what he does. His thing totally doesn't really suit the setting all that well a lot of the time I me you know what he does. You know you think about like what we do in the shadows Ortho Ragnarok or hunt for the wilder people and there's just there's a silliness a innocence jokey. Oh keenness in lightness to them that this film kind of struggles to incorporate smoothly but sometimes when it does it's kind of thrilling. I mean like the very very beginning of the film is like really electric. You know just when you get when you get into that really cool montage set to a German version of a Beatles Song. I thought that was great. I liked the evocation of something like a hard day's night where it's like. Oh Yeah Beatlemania and Hitler maniac kind of the same kind of thing right. The implication being I mean just like you know that you've got people who just swept up in this hysteria in one of them is more malevolent than the other but the nature of that kind of mass pass movement is is same in something kind of like. It's hard as an ordinary person not to become part of that area. At least it should be harder than it said why but it. It's one fits and starts. This film works for me. But there's also kind of this secondhand wes Anderson Quality to a lot of it is Tasha talked about Moon Rise Kingdom. I definitely thought about win when Rise Kingdom and all the Hitler Youth Camp Scenes It's just I don't know it just it didn't it just doesn't the whole thing just doesn't come together like it's supposed to. Embolism kind of a little surprised that it is having quite the impact that it has Is Having in either direction that could be this polarizing because to me it's just like like it just isn't strong enough in either to earn either either into those reactions. Yeah I see what you're saying. I just really think that if the film and followed through on the promise of those early scenes I feel like the conflict between Joe Joe and the other boys the environment that he's he's in where there's a lot of cultural tension Because of you know Germany's because again of the propaganda that everybody's been fed because of this feeling feeling that German power is defined a certain way and that they all have to embody it. This feeling that you know all of these like eight and twelve eight and ten and twelve year world's needs to represent some form of masculinity by doing things like killing a bunny that to me felt a lot reeler are and buy real. I don't necessarily mean could happen in the real world. I mean like evocative of actual emotions sort of metaphorically evocative of what people go through with with bullying all the time what people go through with believing the things that their parents tell them believing the things that they hear on television just Osmo zing in certain beliefs about the world that they hold to like in in that level of childhood. Just very very strongly you know that they believe the complete truth about the world world. I think exploring that in the way that he does in that first. Act Up into the point of of Joe Joe like horribly injuring himself in a a an attempt to be what he thinks he needs to be. I think that would have just been such a more powerful story and I feel like that story takeaway. Td as Hitler which we. I don't really talked about ticket with. TV's performance at all take team's performance as Hitler which is just so in keeping with the kind of like late. Bouncy humor are and dark under core of that that I act And I wish the whole movie followed up on that and didn't try to take us into the the realm of of dead parents and bathos basically. Yeah I don't know The more you talk about this movie the more I want to defend it even away play like I said I. I don't not have problems with it. But like regarding the Wes Anderson Ian Beginning I think what. YTD would say based on in some interviews. I've read with him. Is that in those opening scenes. He is trying to evoke a world seen through the eyes of a child you know. It's a childlike mentality. Taliban both visually and in the dialogue and I think again going back to the sort of being a coming of age film the ideas that that stuff stuff should fall away or become more complicated. Somehow as as the movie progresses as jo-jo becomes more more complicated in his his outlook on life. I don't think the movie does that like on a on a style level. You know. I don't think it's it has a strong sense. It's tone as it. Progresses does in those beginning moments. When we're just getting like pure uncut child Joe Joe? You know it doesn't quite know how to grow as a movie along with its protagonist at that makes sense. I think it kind of maybe gets a little muddled because of that. I think that that makes a Lotta Sense. Yeah I think it's true that there's kind of like am mccade go into Camp Kinda you've even though it's a different kind of camp one positive aspect of it because the film does have it does have a lot going for me. One thing I liked about the film to was how specific it was invoking the end of the war And I think it does a lot through the Sam Rockwell character to just it's like what are we doing now this is this is a losing cause instill character. Very interesting not not unproblematic. But I think there's a there's is a lot going on in that character and there's a definite progression to that character has a very strong. I feel that we see play out in the movie. You know your your question about where controversy comes from this movie. I know that a lot of people that were angered that we're very angered by this movie. Like one of the big points of contention was whether her this movie gives him too much of an arc whether it is offensive to celebrate positive. Yeah to give a Nazi redeeming breath redeeming human ending to his art. Basically this is another thing. We'll talk about. I'm sure connections but I think the fact that that character I think is pretty clearly coated skeie and also figured allows the progression. His character takes too. I think it earns it but I can see not agreeing with that. mcsally excited to see this. This is a trailer of sorts for our prefer off for connections. Because that's a that's a good thought. I think I think that is the type of character who represents what I wanted this movie to be of of someone who because that is a that is a provocative character and dynamic Emma character and again we're reaching this point in the war that the film does such a good job of opening of just like this is this is the end in in what what a waste. I you know what a waste that we have to go through any of this that these boys have to go through this this training camp. And the you know if it's GonNa make any difference at all you know what a waste. I of course that people still have to lose their lives and be tormented by the shop. Oh and and It's just it's all for nothing because the writings on the wall. It's this is not going to be Winning effort on there's also like part of that end of the war aspect is just getting back to Yorkie Who is such an adorable such tyco? Td character and threw him just kind of seeing like how desperate Germany has become like how strained their resources are like how far they've had had to push in order to try to keep training people. You know this. This little boy now thinks of himself as a soldier thinks of himself very factual I has quite a bit nerve weapons training under his belt. That that's the great visual gag at the Ed is so great with the I think the way in the trailer to of him just accidentally Italy firing rocket launcher. That's good stuff and for me that that Kaerlek when genevieve talked about how great that character is that character. kind of sums up again. What the movie could have done and isn't doing like that combination of very New Zealand? Humor summer in his his. Kind of DEADPAN. Effectual nece like his his dedication to the cause his the way he takes everything super super seriously but is still coated in a way that we can kind of like chuckle at him At both how ineffectual he is and how cute he is like. It's just it's a neat little. A package of this is a horrible thing. That's happening. You know this is a child soldier. Whose childhood has been taken away and yet it doesn't affect them at all a key still like in this this late? Eight and sunny place. He's still sort of having fun and doing his duty. Like it's a very rich complicated character that we really only get for a few moments. Maybe she he wouldn't be nearly as strong if we spent more time with him. A lot to talk about with with this movie and with the producers and the connections are not that many connections really between Tweeden. So we'll be right back after the break to do connections we spent a Lotta time analyzing and discussing other people's creative works. But do you have your own creative outlets I do but with work in the PODCAST and planning a wedding sometimes. It's just hard to find the inspiration. I just do something creative for yourself. You know. Yeah I know it can be hard to get started on a new project and then even harder to stay motivated actually finish a project so if an enjoying exploring skill share an online learning community for the crater at all of us the thousands of classes and everything from film and video production. TOO graphic design to creative writing all onto band. So you can learn at your in pace. And they're video. Lessons are more than just teaching you how to do something there about helping you get inspired and motivating you to keep learning whether you want to dive into a new creative endeavor or developing nurture in assisting one. Yeah I mean I've been a quote unquote professional writer for over a decade now. But I was still excited to dig into skill shares creative writing classes because when writing writing as your job sometimes you can lose that drive to write for yourself and skill share. Classes are a great way to sort of recharge my create a batteries. Not only can I sit with amazing writers like Susan Orleans Roxane Gay while they break down their approach to creative nonfiction and personal essays. But each of those classes are accompanied by prompts and resources to help inspire you to apply what you've just just learn to your own creative writing. I'm currently really into the ten day. journaling challenge class with Emily Gould which is accompanied by daily writing. Prompts that you follow for nine days and then on the tenth day they use what Emily teaches you in the lesson to revise what you wrote into a standalone piece and you can even share your projects with others in the skill share community to get feedback and encouragement from him and who doesn't love feedback and encouragement. Speaking of which you're doing a great job. Thank you Tasha though. I prefer you leave your positive feedback on my skill share project. Well maybe I will and our listeners can too when they sign up for and try skill share for themselves next picture show listeners can now join the millions of students already learning unskilled share and get two months free when you sign up skill share dot com slash next pitcher that's two months of unlimited access to thousands of classes for free go to skill share dot com slash next picture to sign up that's skill share dot dot com slash next pitcher and thanks to share for supporting the next picture. Show Court Joe Joe Little Man I don't I want to tell me about that. Habit incident was all that about. They wanted me to kill it. I'm sorry I couldn't don't worry about it. I couldn't care less now. They call me scared. Rabbits let them say whatever they want. People used to say a lot of nasty things about me. Oh this guy's a lunatic. Oh look at that psycho. He's GonNa get us all killed. Let you in on a little secret. The Rabbit is no coward. The Humble Little Advani faces a dangerous world every day hunting carrots for his family for his country. My Empire would be full of all animals. Now it's time for connections when we bring these two films together and talk about all the things they have in common. Well one thing is funny. Hitler's that's probably the strongest connections. ZSA So yes that'd be too Jewish directors making movies About with funny Hitler's but they're obviously funny in different ways so so talk about it. Well there are also funny in kind of the same ways which like very notably. They're both. They're both pretty wishy. They're both pretty effeminate feminine. They're both pretty immature Self absorbed kind of like whiny and self pitying. But at the same time having all of these beliefs of An actual Hitler the combination there of fanaticism and Childishness is meant to be kind of like Indian and Hilarious Maybe a little more so in Joe Rabbit where. He's literally like engaging with a child arguing with a child supporting child teaching child as opposed to an actor portraying him in a an incompetent laughable way but the characterizations to Mir actually Kinda surprisingly similar. Well and they're also they're also both characterizations that are reflective of other characters. More than they are of Hitler. You know. Like the like the Hitler in Joe Joe Rabbit Rabbit is Hitler as Joe has imagined him. Not as Hitler actually is in the Hitler. And it's called. It's springtime for Hitler. Which is what Mel Brooks? I would have preferred to be called. But the Hiller in the producers is you know. LSD's vision such as of Hillary. You know it is neither of them are intended to be their intended is like funhouse mirror portrayal. CNO and I think by divorcing the character from any sort sort of sense of reality. It allows it to engage a tumor in a way that you couldn't if you're actually portraying Adolf Hitler within the narrative that makes sense but it isn't a little weird though. Oh how the Hitler in chose a rabbit does feel a little bit like an independent entity. I mean there. There are times when he is doing actions that are seem apart from whatever role. He's playing in Josiah's life when he's GonNa Swing with other kids jobs not even in the water for example that was one one that kind of stood out but I think that's just like reflective of what Joe thinks he should be doing as a movie Syrian boy. You know it's what Hitler the Hitler in his mind would have him be doing disappointed in him. You know what I mean there's a growing estrangement and a lack of presence The that makes them seem like a separate character or a friend who Giorgio kind of grows apart from these emblematic. He's emblematic of this. You know this collection of propaganda belief system the judge a rabbit pulls away from as he befriends a Jew as he sees his mother die as a result of these policies these beliefs lake. Of course he's going to pull away from the man who is the titular head of the the Reich the representation Haitian of all of the things that happened to him that are bad like of course. He's pulling away from him. Dude you liked to do like take your what Hitler I have a hard time separating him from TYCO Heiko. What's Hedy who I like very very much Just as a personality. He's you know I've seen him live. He's just a very effortlessly funny eh person. He's very charming. He's very charismatic. I've interviewed him. I've obviously watched his movies like just like him a lot. So you stick a silly silly moustache on him And have kind of switch around a little bit. I'm probably going to inherently want to lake him in the way people inherently want to like you know celebrities Veasley. They've made some kind of feeling of connection to. Is it a good portrayal of Hitler I. I don't know what defines a good portrayal of Hitler. It works within the comedy. Because it's it's defending Hitler as an idea it's reducing him and making him Small and ridiculous. I mean I think that charisma you speak of is actually kind of important to playing Hitler you know like I mean for his evil misguided as he was you know he was to some people a charismatic leader. And you know we get that perception in the opening moments of Joe Rabbit with the whole Hitler mania you know I wanna hold your hand scene and and then coupled with the fact that this is supposed to be a Hitler as seen through the eyes of the child and therefore sort of childlike and silly. Td actually make sense to me. You know because he is both charismatic. and kind of silly and so for for the version of Hitler that this movie movie is engaging with I think the the casting in the performance makes a lot of sense I guess he the producer studios every who it was. It was his idea for him to play Hitler he was basically kind of push to do that. Because presumably. No one else would want to do it too in the movie. We couldn't get made but I I I like I like his performance as a I I also am a bit of A. YTD Stan. I I L- I just love him as a person and find him very Like you said charismatic and engaging so it's it's a little hard to separate him here but I think that is sort of the idea you know. I think you're supposed to see why this little boy would become like sort of enamored of this this version of Hitler. uh-huh yeah and and again both films do create this context where you get that that bit of distance we in the producers. It's in the context of of a play. That's being station Asian in this. It's in the context of imagination rather than the real thing so if you can get that you know just just to do a comedy of Hitler being Hitler during World War Two a little harder. We'll more difficult. There's another interesting connection here not too you know you got to stick with Nazi Well this is pushing this at play. genevieve was talking about that a little bit with Sam Rockwell character. Right in in Just the L.. Yeah and the Alfie Allen Character. I think it's it's pretty clear are in some sort of a relationship. As the as the film progresses and as mentioned before the portrayal of Hitler in the producers is what you might call than coupled with some gay panic moments around the the director who is not a Nazi but the film certainly has some some moments of engaging with homosexuality in in a negative light I I would argue. I would say in a cheap comedy light which I'm not disagreeing. We figure I'm just I think more specific. Yeah but I really just this kind of want to take this opportunity. To aunt to unpack the Sam Rockwell Alfie Allen characters a little bit and and the Ark of the Sam Rockwell character character in the context of you know him him being a Nazi soldier. Who has sort of fallen through the ranks you know over the career and I? I think it's interesting interesting in Georgia rabbit to watch that character. Become more flamboyant the closer we get to the end and then in the final L. Moments in his glorious plumage outfit he designed with with Allen by his side riding into battle sort of like not even trying to conceal it anymore. I think there's a sort of poignancy to that it's again maybe a little cheap lear mawkish Lee done but I think there is and effort to to say something there about homosexuality under Nazi regime that there is not an attempt to say anything of substance about I and the producers but the producers does arguably sort of a lightly engaged with that tension I also read Sam Rockwell and Alfie Allen as as a gay couple and I kept wondering if there was a version of either script or or the film editing. That had more Alfie Allen in that had in had more of that relationship because you know alcohol and is not a superstar. But he's at this point. Thanks to game of thrones particular a very recognizable face and and have him in that role when he has maybe a line Just seemed weird. It was perpetually distracting to me to have him on screen but not speaking or doing anything significant really engaging and I kept wondering if there had been more to him and had been cut out for some reason I kept wondering if there had been a version of the story that did play up their relationship a little bit more and made it into more of a kind of a selling point for Sam Rockwell's character given that his this his whole thing seemed to be. He's not he doesn't really believe the things that he's being forced to do anymore. He doesn't if there was a point where he did. He's long past that point. I'm I'm from the beginning. He just comes across as like a little jaded and a little out of it. Not exactly a true believer so the idea that he's also gay and concealing ailing that and kind of like living under look under a cloud. Living under a threat of being sent off to the camps for being gay is a big provocative potential Cilicia in the movie. That just becomes BELVA. Doesn't get wrong unless like Jewishness in the producers. It's just sort of meant to be there for for people who are looking for it for people who are you're kind of in on the the symbolism of it but you know it's twenty nineteen. It's long past the point of like let's very very very quietly hint at this. For the percentage of the population that cares about it And completely cover it up for everybody else like. That's the not really a gay relationships work on the argument I would offer is again that this is a you know. We're seeing this world through. Joe Joe is we're seeing this through the eyes of eleven year old. Who would not you know? He would see certain things but he would not put them together in an explicit way of of what was actually actually happening there so I think you could make the argument that the film is just reflecting what he is seeing allowing viewers who are more savvy than coach out to fill in the blanks in there is some gayness explicit in perhaps not so much in the producers to write and the director and his assistant assistant and Maybe in Hitler himself question Mark Yeah I I have a hard time seeing it in. LSD's portrayal of Hitler. It just feels more like you know you're a Druggie hippie. Teams stereotype divorced from any sexuality. Beyond maybe maybe like free love man but not specifically homosexuality but sort of the the mannerisms I think you can make an argument that that they come through and his mannerisms and that that is again sort of operating on the level of cheap joke you know like Oh oh Jerry dictator guy. He's authentic right. He's a fantasy is hilarious. It's the you you don't need a punchline. It's a man acting sort of womanish that's hilarious. I mean that's that's sort of the mentality of the humor going on there which is why it falls pretty flat. I think thank right but but I think there is also instinct of just like what's the what's the most humiliating portrayal. What what what? What would hit little like the least into if you were around to see it and I think that you know what someone like? LSD In the way he incur carries themselves and certainly his is kind of peace. Nick attitudes and everything kind of fits that bill comically is brought as it is Dick Shawn wasn't Jewish. was he I I I feel like by virtue of YTD being Jewish Hiller would hate it more trail more. Yeah yeah the though. He's he's more committed to to those values the LSD is off. Doing is doing is is own. Think think I don't think there's really a lot of thought is being given to Staying true to the character goes and so we have a couple of powerful powerful characters. Here who instigate the action of both films Tasha. You wanted to talk about that. Yeah I just found it interesting. That both of these kind of revolve around horrible mentors In one case it's an imaginary friend who are urging eleven year old odor rabbit onto fascism and hatred Richard anti-semitism and racism and all sorts of things in the case of the producers. You've got a timid man who would never have considered all of these crimes crimes being urged into them under the pretense of like little like break out of your shell do something exciting with your life. just I just live and that moment I'm always struck by the moment where gene wilder decides to go in on the scheme and the fountain bursts forth behind him of this is that the world world itself is reflecting. Like how wonderful and exciting and thrilling it is. He's agreed to get caught up in this crazy scheme. That is the only we really exists to profit zero muscles character. And in the same way we've got Gioja be kind of like led down the garden path by by Hitler who is is similarly trying to profit like both of these movies center around terrible advice from terrible people who are trying to manipulate smaller and weaker and more innocent characters characters specifically for gain While making pretense of this being lake a larger societal thing that they really should embrace Because if so they're not living up to their full potential And I just I for two very different films really with very different terrible mentors. I think it's it's an. Interestingly Dingley close parallel I think where it notably differs at Joe Joe Rabbit there is a counter mentor figure in in in his mother. You know. So there's a there's a balance for of that cynicism. I guess maybe the you get in the in that relationship in the producers where Leo is just like kind of buys into to maximize his whole thing and you know they end up in prison together and that's the happy ending you know whereas in Georgia Rabbit. It's more of a attention that JOE JOE is trying to figure out between these two like major influences in his life As he again is sort of figuring out what sort of person he's he's going to be and and I think that's where the movie sentimental street kind of you know where where its roots are and again I was pretty positive on the Scarlett Carla Johannesen character in that performance. But I think it is also kind of indicative of where Joe Rabbits more sentimental streak it comes from one aspect to get back to this Topic at hand but what. You mentioned Sculpture Hanson. Her approach to parenthood feels right to me in a way. Like like. There's a sense of like of doting insured and she kind of understood. I think she understands who he who this boy is at his core and that he's going to find his way he's way off right now but he's she's not the type of person person who's going to potentially alienate him by getting upset and also she. She feels like she's protecting him a little bit by not discouraging interest of his. But I think I think to to get back to the the the mentor thing in terms of the men. Ts here. Leo and Joe Joe. There's that allure of power. I mean these are both weak week. People he's a ten year old boy or eleven year old boy in an accountant who can barely get through. You know every waking moment is a panic attack attack for this guy so so to have that promise of of strength from somebody who's who's got who's more persuasive and more powerful I mean. There's there's there's an allure to it's hard for both characters to extricate themselves from it I mean and I think there is a point in the producers. Were Leo does when things go wrong wrong terribly wrong he can kind of say. This is the worst I've ever met you. At least have that record that moment of recognition that he's got this is brought into this awful mess by this really bad guy. I think it's worth noting in the producers. It doesn't seem like we really know enough about Leo to know why he such a shell of a man This is not the kind of film that goes into deep detail about this kind of thing It's that interested in backstory motivations character like these are fairly two dimensional characters stereotypes but in Georgia rabbit a a lot of what a lot of the reason that he's willing to give in to this terrible mentor. Figure is societal pressure. Peer pressure like the sense that everybody around him believes believes in what Hitler has to say. And that like he represents some kind of like ultimate father figure Joe himself as lacking a father figure because his father is gone on. And in that sense like you guys were talking about Scarlett Johansson's character and how she kind of tries to push back and be the the other pole From the terrible mentor. Figure here. I think the sequence where she sort of pretends to be Joe Father and pretends to have that conversation back and forth is just really telling because in her way she's kind of trying to portray another negative influence in his life and then ameliorated she's also in a way that almost seems too sophisticated for this movie is expressing her own disappointment and her own loss in her own anger at her. Lost husband And I just there's so so much packed into that sequence and it's so important in terms of like understanding why Joe believes the things he does and is willing to knuckle under to what basically amounts to a father figure that he's created Out of of pieces of Zeitgeist in his own imagination and his own need need I I just I think. That's a really touching moment but it's also just a really densely richly character packed moment. Where you get to see for a moment just all of the kind of like raging anger and frustration and insecurity and yet like love and nostalgia packed into her character? And and that's where I don't know that I buy the whole idea of this movie being entirely from Georgia's perspective because we're just seeing too much of her. We're seeing too much of what drives her and what she's trying to do and then the sequence where she sits down with Elsa and talks about how she's losing. Joe Joe you know to to Hitler Hitler these beliefs and she hopes she'll get him back but she doesn't. She doesn't know what to do. Like none of that is from Joe Joe's perspective and again at some of the most telling Material the film. I think agree that I don't want to claim that the movie is beginning to end toll only through jobs perspective. I think that that is a argument. You could make to sort of gloss over certain quote unquote flaws in the movie or or explain certain things that maybe don't don't make sense but it's not true throughout the whole movie. That scene does pests Bechtel Test though there you go does it. I wasn't tracking it for that. But aren't they mostly talking about Joe but they also talk a little bit about there's this stuff about her light was riding a horse or something like talking about which puts she'll be able to do or how you become a woman. There is a little talk about what it means to be a woman outside of the Joe of it all it barely passes the backdoor test but yeah. I don't want to spend too much time on packing that but I I have certainly only been privy to some fairly vehement discussions about whether something passes the Bechtel test if two women talk about something other than a man in the same same scene where they are also talking about a man and mostly talking about a man. Like there's there's a lot of debate about exactly where that line is drawn. Well I mostly bring it up as a way to get to our next connection. Connection how producers do Bechtol test wasn't tracking for that but I feel pretty say that does they barely has speaking Female Characters concierge. Now that's true. Yeah that's it. Right is the only one who gets a name name. The concierge is better than a name. Yeah she's I mean there as with all the characters and and the producers for the most part like they're you're kind of joke delivery devices. I character second. You know they don't. It's not really pretty really concerned with backstory beyond the point to which it affects a joke doc you know and it doesn't arguably doesn't need to have that but it doesn't Make for particularly engaging women characters and this spill the kind of unfortunate connection between the female characters in these films really with the kind of primary female characters for whatever that's worth and the producers search is that they're seen primarily as as like objects of ownership by male characters and with WHO led. That's very open and played for humor. Like ha ha. She's a toy that I bought. I can afford to get myself a nice thing. Like a dancing Swedish Bikini Remodel with not much on her mind accept a paid sex but one of the things that bothered me on a fundamental level about Joe Rabbit was the degree to which which Joe Joe and ill says relationship is played as a sort of you know cute Childhood Romance Acute Coming of Age Romance while it's it's also a kind of horrible situation where he's gas lighting. Her repeatedly gasoline her in order to control her in order to control. What information alleges that at the end? Yeah at the end but like nonetheless like his punches him. He's gasoline cleaning. He's played for humor. It's played for adorable Miss. And it's just just as weird as it was for some people to see Hitler played comedic to see a Nazi played for redemption. It was weird to me me to see a gas later controlling a girl Like by basically by repeatedly threatening her life by making up ways in which her our boyfriends that he's never met and doesn't know has failed her and rejected her for humor. It's just it's a very strange source of humor for me in that part just really didn't land very well. Yeah eventually she punches him yeah they they danced together. Yeah there's the moment of forgiveness but I don't know for me it was for me. It was too easy. She comes out into a world where she is not under constant threat of death and realizes that this boy made aid up a constant threat of death in order to try to own her literally to own her. I have a conversation with my husband about this and he was a lot more forgiving of that dynamic hamic because his feeling was joe doesn't necessarily see that as a romantic connection he just doesn't want the last person in his life to go away you know. He's he's lost so much he's just scared of letting go of losing this last connection and looking at it in that late does make it a little more tolerable for me but but the fact that he starts like pretty much the first interaction they have is him low lying about this supposed letter. He's gotten from her boyfriend saying you're ugly and I don't like you anymore. Just makes it really hard for me to take him as a sympathetic character and all this is very young yes. He's very young. I don't want to excuse that relationship ship but I I don't fully agree with the reading that it is played for laughs any more than other parts of this movie. That engaged with difficult things are are are played for laughs. Like I think it's part of the sort of tonal tight rope. This film attempting to walk. I like I said I think it acknowledges riches that what Joe is doing is is horrible and I think it does so while also acknowledging that he is a young boy who has lost a lot a lot and doesn't really know what he's doing and is being influenced by a terrible outside forces and so. I think I can't read need that. gaslight relationship is being played quote unquote played for laughs. I think there are elements of humor in it. There are jokes in it. But it's I don't thing it's an inherently comedic relationship. Now he's struggling. I mean he's. He's struggling to kind of come to terms with this girl that he's been taught to hate and that he can't bring himself self to fully hate US curious. He doesn't a lot of the things that he's learning about. Her defy what he's been told to expect. And so that relationship evolves. I think it'll pretty fairly earnest this way and this way. I don't really see a whole lot of romantic angle here You know I think there's a there's he says he loves her you know but it's in that what little boy way. Sure well with your I kind of older girls sexual but I do think that it's very significant advocate. That basically his first act of connection with her is to try to erase her boyfriend from Islam from her life. True I just I think he sees him as competition you know for for his ownership of her basically. I haven't read the book but I've heard from a number of sources that the book is a lot worse in this regard that he it keeps her in the closet for years lying to our so he can control our and I can't imagine that obviously I can't imagine that playing out particularly well on film since the kids are or at ages where they would change hugely over. The course of those years and presumably does not have access to Gemini man or Irishman level aging technology analogy and. I'm glad he didn't go that far with it but I'm certainly not saying that their relationship has played only for laughs. I'm just saying that Aspects of the gas leading specifically perfect. Leave the letter reading specifically the way he immediately rushes to eraser boyfriend and are pretty hurtful way and the way she kind of takes it with a bureau strange little boy kind of grain of salt. I think all of that is played for humor. Semi related question. Do we believe that. Her boyfriend Israel I believe he's real and he that that he's dead Yeah Okay Yeah I do believe that. That's real pitcher and possibly represents like a a real fantasy for her of a different way way that her life might have turned out that she hoped that her life was going to turn out. But yeah I I guess I took it at face value. When she said that he'd gone away? I guess I missed the picture part art That we saw an actual picture of him isn't the there's a picture of him I. It's been a little while for me. I thought there was a picture of him. Interlock it okay. I may have just been a it makes sense. I don't recall. I recall a lock it. I don't recall what the picture is but that makes sense. I guess that that must have just blown by me. It may be. I was distracted by someone making noise in the or something but percents Jingling crazily. But yes I think I read that as a little ambiguous and maybe sort of defense mechanism on on her part of you know I have a boyfriend. And he's he's waiting for me but that could would just be a complete misreading on my part based on something I missed. I think it's a little defensive but I also think it's just sort of indicative of how different they are. I mean girls mature her a little faster than boys. She's also a little older than him and I think that he's looking at her. and kind of seeing this you know aspirational fantasy of. It's like being the girlfriend of what seems like a an older more sophisticated girl at a couple years older than him whereas she's kind of got the fantasy of being the girlfriend of this older for more sophisticated boy and it's just kind of indicative. How at that age anybody like a few years younger than you has like a kind of glamour about them? You know. It's you're looking at your own future and wanting to be there faster because you think it's going to be more exciting so I you know it. It makes sense to me that there's just kind kind of this little daisy chain of him chasing her not necessarily thinking that he can have her in any meaningful way her chasing this boy who's gone. I mean the whole country is kind of chasing a future. That's not coming. You know chasing a future that they for the most part already know that they've lost and it's kind of like the entire situation. That Germany mini is in at the moment. Yeah I'm assuming we though. We probably don't have much to say about the rich relationship between Lula beyonce. He also shock. You're in bloom so point Joe Joe Rabbit is concerned. They do both kind of a treat. Women like toys to a certain extent if you look at the the whole Elsa thank the proprietary -ness of Of that relationship. Yes I'M GONNA I'm GonNa bad place where saw frozen to today and all I can think of in terms terms of Elsa is let it go. Let her go let her go well. We're going to let these movies go for now The producers is widely available on streaming services. And it's on DVD BLU. Ray Joe Joe. Rabbit is in theaters. Now we'll be right back with your next picture show Finally it's time to catch up on films or film related Items We've seen in the interim since our last podcast we call it your next picture show and the hopes it'll put some interesting choices on your radar genevieve. What in the film world has been good for you lately? Well it's it's not so much lately and I have recommended this movie on the podcast before but it's been a while a I'm GonNa Cheat and recommend it again since it's a movie I thought about again and again while watching Shinjo rabbit and I think in some ways it might have made for an even more interesting pairing with that film than the one we have here. That film is boy a twenty ten coming of age film by one take a TV and the reason I kept thinking about it during Joe Rabbit is not. Just because it's protagonist is a young boy in this case eleven year old boy who has called well boy and not just because by. Td plays the role of shady slash ridiculous character in this case Boys ex-convict absentee father who returns to his life under suspicious circumstances But the real reason I kept thinking about it because of the problematic real life figure who plays a central role in the narrative. One Michael Jackson the film is Sutton Nineteen eighty-four the peak of the thriller era and boy in pretty much. Everyone in his life is obsessed with Jackson including his father in a winds up being something. They're able to bond over after a fashion and now I'm not trying to equate Michael Jackson and Hiller here nor am I claiming the boy attempts to get all revelatory accusations around Jackson and how it's affected our cultures appreciation sheesh of his music. But what I am suggesting. Is that like Joe Joe. Rabbit boy is interested in questions. About how adolescents seek out relate to cultural role models versus parental role models and both films walk and interesting. tonal tight rope. Though I'd say boy lands pretty squarely in the realm of heartwarming at the end. Although I guess maybe rabbit does too depending on. You're on your opinion for what it's worth. Dancing plays a pretty central thematic role in both films as well but yeah I like I like boy a lot. It's very purely what not film it is set in New Zealand and Scott that New Zealand strain of humor. We've been talking about in spades so I definitely want to to to check out. I'd say the one film I think of his I I haven't seen I think I've seen all of his other doctoral efforts and that was I mean it was kind of before the people really were in him so You got you got an early just like just like the album boy. which was their first? So that's the way things start Scott. What about yeah okay so I have been working on this giant Disney plus list for the Times. Be Sort of the keeper of the list and We're GONNA talk about it for a patriotic episode as well so if you're subscriber you can look for that episode too but One of the one of the films that I discovered based on a recommendation from our friend Noel Murray is a documentary. Ish movie called Perry from nine hundred fifty seven that was part the true life adventure series and it's based on a book by feel Sultan who was also responsible for Bambi. And it's kind of this fictional construct that they've built documentary footage around kind of support. And so it's kind of a lot of nonsense but at the same time. It reflects a a view an understanding of nature that I think is unusual and refreshing from what we get. Now I mean I think you watch the Disney nature. Movies is now and we'll certainly get into things like environmental impacts etc.. Perry has moments of just utter terror. You know it's it's about the circle of life but part of it is like they're predators everywhere you know and it's just there's this pecking order and We're following a very vulnerable young female Pine Squirrel in Jackson Hole Wyoming as it was very lovely little forest area neighborhood neighborhood. I guess and You know he's she's under attack and other animals under attack in the film's stages at all as suspenseful as that that Canon at the beginning of the film especially is really kind of dark and scary in and It's it's interesting I think it's it's an exciting approach. Approach to the subject at Fi- I feel like thematically it reflects the sort of circle of life themes that you see in Bambi and it's kind of it's attitude was like. Hey kids you know this is how nature nature is. You know it's kind of it can be kinda rough. Is this a murder involved. But there's also there's also a lot of beauty in mischievous behavior and things that you can identify with as well so I really connected with it and I think it's something that's going to be tucked away in two Disney sie. Plus it's a title that baby people won't notice he count and I think if you are you know Do have the service that I think a lot of people obviously are signing up. It's kind ah lesser-known thing that's worth checking out so Perry P. E. R.. I I'm just I'm suddenly hearing verner Herzog's talk about how the jungle is. We're not that far away. A harmony of overwhelming collective right. The birds are screaming in Nagy Yeah it's it's it's not quite that level but it is. It's a lot of respect for for sure we'll talk. What about you at fantastic fest earlier? This year I saw this movie called. I lost my my body which is an animated French film which is coming to a very very select theaters on November fifteenth Basically hitting New New York in L. A. in advance of an Oscar run for best animated film But it'll be a lot more accessible when it comes to net flicks on November twenty ninth. This is a very strange. In sweet and different. Kind of movie it basically starts with a severed hand in the morgue kind of coming coming to life and setting out on an adventure. It crawls around on its fingertips thing. You're inevitably going to think of thing from the addams family a- and addams family movies of various kinds but we flash back and forth between the hands adventures in trying to get somewhere. It seems seems to be driven to move in a specific direction to to seek out something And in encounters all sorts of terrifying obstacles like rats that want devour it and Cars and I just like barriers to something small and completely defenseless like moving through the world which becomes kind of a metaphor for how people operate in the world trying to get through their everyday life with threats around them but more significantly eh movie continually flashes back to the person that the hand came from This young mixed raced teenager. Who sees a pizza deliveryman He's a little bit aimless He is his folks are dead and he's living with relatives who barely tolerate him. It kind of makes a turning point when he makes a connection a remote connection Through an unorthodox means that I'm not going to spoil with a girl and essentially starts stalking her and seeing her from afar. She's this kind of cool girl in Scott Pilgrim vs the world mode with colorful headphones and Aqui hairstyle and just like a way of carrying herself that he admires and she means a lot to him He means nothing to her and he can't quite figure out how to in in her life and a whole lot of things fall out from there. That are a little bit disturbing and very charming and melancholy and sad this whole movie movie in a way is about loneliness and disconnection and try to find your way in the world but it's told in such an unusual way both because of the the idea of the severed autonomous hand. And because it's so artfully tied into the connection between this. This lost body part in the the Mana China came from. If you go watch the trailer you'll see a lot of just the the way the Director First Time Director Jeremy Clarkson makes a kind of visual poem. Warm out of what. This boy is like was like like when he was gone concentrating on his hand his hand digging into sand at the beach has hand Clinching clenching onto his bike. As he as he rises bike His hand waving in the air as he leans out of a car. It will make you appreciate your own body body in just a a strange low key way just like aware of your your physical extremities in a way that I think is very unusual for are what's essentially a sort of romantic drama thirty of sorts. It's a very unusual film. It's very beautifully animated It's very very sweetly told and it just it completely took me as lake. A sort of mainstream modern urban fairy tale of sorts. I think that's about the best way I'm going to be able to describe it so I lost my body. I on Netflix on November twenty ninth. I'm looking forward to that. I've heard a lot of really good things about got it. That's it for this edition of the next picture. Show our next Perry will come out December every second and ninth genevieve. What's coming up? Next Noah Baumbach new film marriage story is a personal film about the agonizing process of divorce. And how it's designed to bring out the worst this qualities of those involved. Not only does the couple played by Adam. Driver and Scarlett Johansson have to engage in a protracted and expensive legal battle against each other. They also have to deal with the fallout and other aspects of their life including their relationship to their only child that dynamic calls to mind Kramer Versus Kramer and Oscar winning drama starring Meryl Streep and Dustin often that also digs into the ugliness of divorce especially when a child is involved.
