"To be illegal, right? Legal not not if you're famous. Hey, you know, how much money I had to bribe this guy to get my kids into community college. It is tough out there. And then he's sharing a conversation. And this happened. I believe when I was on vacation. But I filed it away. I read about it, you know, at the airport on Sunday when I decided to catch up on all the gossip that happened without me. And I read about this thing. And I was just like oh my gosh. And of course, it has to do with Amazon greatest things I think I've ever seen is you've got this little like Amazon device. It's a TV versus the Amazon. Alexa. So you just when you're working with Steve or whenever you just say dropping on Steve Martin. They suddenly Steve he's there. It doesn't even ask. His permission can look in on. No. And that's what I like. It's very Star Trek. It's like suddenly Steve's just right there. Oh my God. And you know, I've seen him, you know, without any clothes on. That's why does anything. Looks like in the eighties. I think just to snort him. Does the human body? But so anyway, he's got this Amazon thing because these two are always rating, I'm telling you guys cover the story that Amazon is employing thousands of people to listen to us. I saw the headline didn't know where to go with it thousands. He did on the power, Alexa conversation. Well, I am plug it. I am plug ours. They have everything about you. Because I'm just like they don't need to be hearing everything. So I just I am plug him. And I think he has commercials because it has a camera in it's easier on paper towels. They employ of global team to listen to an Amazon says, it's they're taking its dran. And they're just trying to get Alexa that understand better. But different different accents at the same time. I hope the bad guys have Alexa plugged in. And they're caught that way. There you go. There you go about that. No. I heard that. I just thought oh my word. But it is kinda interesting because he beat me up. Scotty, you know, where your body would. All of a sudden, boom. But I mean, how invasive if someone could just look at you in your own house. I know without you. I think he said though, the there has to be well comedy three from both. Of course, of course. But still I the fact that someone's watching all of these. Okay.

No. But you know, the kickoff for that. But okay. Yeah. I knew Quentin Tarantino the canned film festival. They would say he would be it would be a lock if he had a film, but apparently is not done being edited. It's all about the editing Laurie. I'm gonna tell you this when I mean Holly is over there. But I'm pretty sure he's always edited as his own movies. He's acted as film editor on this movie. He does have somebody else. But certainly the canned film festival if he had that movie ready. They would have like, yes. Mr. tarintino radio. Great that. Well, I think that was initially what the plan was going. Once upon a time in Hollywood and competition that can now.

It they're going to use the sense. And then the Jim Jarmusch zombie dad Kim Jong moose family zombie. That's hard for me. Psalmody? I thought of a good way I was going to dead. Don't die is actually the movie that's opening the film Johnny posted that that looks like a hell of a zombie. Zombie. Anyway, that is the one that's actually officially kicking off the thing.

If you get a white wife because it's a lot easier to cast than Asians. I'm like fuck that. No, this is my life, and I will cast whoever I want to cast with as I'm allowed to. And there was a lot.

Like when our characters argue talk to my life, like like, how would I would actually mimic and argue with with my with my life, and we would like how are we? How are we gonna argue like this? So I wanted real life dialogue. And and then it was like I was such a high writing off of that show. And I enjoy I mean, my favorite part of Dr king was writing on that show being writers every day. And then and then that apply to my stand up which you hadn't done for like ten year done in ten years. Well, let's that that leads us into the last question, which is just this crazy pricey rich past year. I mean for you. Let's let me just before you go off with this. Let's just recount for listeners. You play the patriarch of the Singapore family with sort of new money in crazy, rich, Asians, which was the first Hollywood film with an all Asian principal casts since the Joya club twenty five years earlier, and that I'll leave it to you explain, but basically came out of just the support of outreach to John CHU. I guess that he made actually to you or vice versa. When Dr Ken ended so in that you have not a lot of screen time. But great screen time with Aquafina of which I understand was mostly improvised than and was you it, you know, doing what you do to best which is I think the kind of crazy comedy, but with grounded in humanity. So that's that's one of the things that happened in the past year with such social significance..

"You know, I I was a fan of GI Joe as a kid I had like all the action figures I loved watching the cartoons. The the movies are kind of disappointing. I you know, I was very excited that Jon CHU. You know, who went on to direct crazy rich agents. Did that GI Joe sequel that you mentioned in that sneak is seen that whole action sequence? I think is the best part of that movie for probably actually when we that's the only part of that movie worth watching. I think, but you know, that had John CHU involved. And I feel like that was I almost feel that that was the only reason he wanted to be on that project was for that scene. Like, he really just wanted to do that scene. I feel like with the talent of John chew. I'm not excited. I Nick is movie. I I love snake is I know I I'm not going to beat this to death. Because I know I've said this many times in the past and the podcasts by feeling a character. Like snake is the appeal of him is the mystique, and you don't know. Who is below the mask, and I feel like a movie like this. You're going to have to take that mask off and go into his origins in two. He is the person that I think that ruined takes away the mystique. So I just don't understand why they're making this movie, but proved me wrong. So. Yeah. And also, I just looked this up. I I said I think earlier that that Robert twenty directed both red movies. He actually just directed. The first one and dean parasol directed the second one. So you can save your emails people. I know. Okay. I mentioned that someone's dad probably watched read.

"Apple does lay the groundwork for what comes later. I was trying to explain to somebody the other day they were saying are on the iphone. I don't really think it's an impressive. It's like, well, you have to think about what this lane groundwork for like apple could literally launch a headset tomorrow and all the groundwork they've laid in Iowa's twelve means that they would have more a our apps on the on their platform than anybody else you look at all these other devices that are out there. You know the magic leap which apparently is usually disappointing Microsoft's hollow lens. These are such limited markets, but by leveraging a platform that millions upon millions upon millions of people using and thousands upon thousands of developers are Erie us, they are creating the groundwork for a are apps that are now going to be able to be on a future headset or whatever. So it's the same thing with Siri and workflow. Oh, and now shortcuts all that integration that they've done now builds on. So all the hooks that serious had an apse before can now automatically be just click a button and bam now you're working with shortcuts. So they've laid a lot of the groundwork and they've done a nice job and I expect it really good things gonna come from shortcuts is just going to have to be somebody else building it. Yep. Now I wanted to to talk about a little bit. I mean, we we know that one of the big things that happens with the iphone ten antennas, rather the camera cameras, kind of huge deal. Right. So in the past, there have been people that shot movies on iphone five in the chop movies on iphone seven, and we actually had a movie that was in theaters that was shot on iphone seven. There have been a few. Yeah. The most recent one being sort of remove insane. Yeah. And it looks like director, John CHU who directed crazy rotations shot a short film entirely on phone tennis max. He had early access prior to the launch on Friday, and he shot this project in partnership with wired called somewhere. And it was sort of a glimpse into the workout routine of a Bibo starting Luigi risotto who uses his dance moves in solitude on garage. And so they didn't use any special hardware or any post processing software. They just started capturing this these dance moves and did it even they didn't even use Kimble's or dollies. They just kind of hand held the phone and used Bilton stabilization, and it came out pretty awesome. Yeah. I mean, this guy is the new hot thing in Hollywood, right? And crazier changes. This was on top of the box office for like five or six weeks or something that's made a ton of money. So good get for apple, very timely. And you know, talented, dude, who's clues showing off what you can do with the really cool camera new pocket. You know, it used to be that if you wanted to make a movie, there was this camp of people that would tell you, you had to go to film school and do all the right things and learn how to raise money and rent equipment and all that stuff. And there was this other campaign people that said, basically go get whatever camera you possibly can put your hands on it and just start shooting something. Go ahead and write this and go for it. Right. And you know, that's how Kevin Smith kind of started. That's how there there are people who have made live action versions of Toy Story or there. There was a guy who he and his friends when they were kids spent years recreating Indiana Jones. And raiders the law star. They reshot raiders the law start. Can they started out doing it on on VHS and documentary about that? We all raiders pretty good. Right? And so the the ability to have a super good camera in a phone that's widely available should enable a lot more creativity, right? It should enable people to become filmmakers whenever they want to and the tools get out of the way and it's it's just down to your own talented on acting you're on writing, right? I went and saw really terrible movie in theaters last week called the, I think it was. It was either ninjas zombie, zombie ninja..

"And so that was that was pretty amazing. There is not a lot that I can talk about this movie with without giving things away. Because, yeah, just this movie is a suspense thriller that is done incredibly well. I people reaching out to me when they saw that I was seeing this all, is that a horror movie. I don't really like horror movies. I have no idea what trailers they saw. The kind of led them to believe that maybe some of the marketing it does kind of look like a scary movie, some of the marketing. Sure. But no, this is this is not a horror film to those people listening. This is a suspense thriller. This is a drama. This is a mystery thriller. The suspenseful it is engaging. It is impactful. John show is a star, this guy. Again, like I was just talking about my Rudolph how she needs, you know her own movies. You need people to be c. p. see her as a solid person who can run a film by yourself. John show, and this guy is just crushing it and he can do the big movies like Star Trek and everything, which was great doing a film like Columbus, you know, from last year doing a movie like this where it shows his reign as traumatic actor, blew me away like there are scenes in this movie where you kind of forget that a lot of us are first exposure, other American pie or Harold and Kumar. Go to white castle, seeing his growth as an actor as a performer is phenomenal. So he was just especially in a movie like this where it is really just an introspective look at him. He is driving this movie. We are looking at the movie essentially through his eyes because even though you know it is the laptop, FaceTime, style camera. We're only seeing him and the the on Somboon that put together around him. There. Only a few scenes were there more than a few people actually more than two people so that I mean, it really just was like, okay, John show. Here you go. Here's your vehicle run with it. The direction. I mean by a niche was solid and not just solid, but just unique. It took him. I was listening to another interview that he did. It took him two years to edit this movie. So in the original title of this was actually search like this, I started coming at film festivals is searched. They changed it, you know, along the marketing path to searching happen all the time. So when he was talking about it took him two years to edit this movie because of those unique perspective because of those unique that unique vision that he has that type of dedication to your craft is so special. And so just kind of harrowing. Yeah, that that he has my utmost respect. And if this is his first, not if because this is first feature film, I am fascinated to see kind of what is next. If he sticks with this style of all, turn it of camera work, alternative, filming, alternative viewpoints, or if he goes more traditional route, I really not sure. John CHU as the data is twenty eight, teen dad was hilarious. I one point when he is looking through his daughters computer to try and piece together clues. Somebody was like, oh, checked her tumbler, and he was like, what? What? The tumbler? Hilarious? Because again, he, he is a dad. He's out of touch dad with a teen daughter. Just funny. There were some times win, you know he'd be go to going to log into Facebook and then g mail. And you know, we're seeing all of that. The I, I would say like few times we see that. I will not say that it was. It would just it was we get it. That was a thing that he did more than once. But I think once he did those moments where you had to like, oh, forgot password. Go to g mill, forgot that one, and you're bouncing around between those things? It was. It was inter -taining..

"And I just needed something to wake myself up a little bit like, what am I contributing to this medium that I love so much and my friend. Bless her heart. She said to me, John, you have the best life because you're like, you're like. That means you're like, you make a lot. You like movies and they make a lot of money and they're, they're popular issue and like they're really like known but not really famous famous issue and like it's the best because you like you make money or like right in under the radar. It's great. And I think that's really offensive actually. It kinda got in my head. I'm like, yeah, what am I actually doing? And I've loved all my movie that put all myself into these movies and sequels franchises. There's nothing wrong with that. And I and I and I did that as a process for myself. But then I realized I what? What was I contributing to this and turn to the thing that was scariest to me, I'd never. I'd made one student short about my cultural identity and I don't show that ever. It's too sensitive. It's too scary for me. I don't have all the answers. I don't know the answers. I feel like I'd make something Asian people look at me and they're like, oh, you're so white. When you make your movies and then white people look at me and they're like, oh, you're so age. There's so many things get in your head. If you say one wrong thing. You feel like the worst person in the world and that you're misrepresenting your family and where they come from. And so this is the last thing I really want, but I knew that it was something that would scare me and and I read crazy which age of my my sister sent me the book and said, why aren't you doing this movie? And my mom's sent me that said the same thing, my aunt and all my Asian friends did. And what I found in it wasn't the crazy rich stuff that interests me all that stuff like I don't even care about it was this Asian American girl going to Asia for the first time that spoke to me. I remember that very vividly going at nine or ten years old going to Taiwan for the first time feeling at home, feeling like people. Treat you like their brother or their cousin, and I never, I was an all American all California kids. So going there surprise me that I felt this and then they call you something like why low or something, which is like white devil. Okay. I don't think they see me as part of this either, and then you come back and then you feel like you have to choose, and so you choose and you go forward. And so anyway, the last thing I wanted to do was hawk about how Asian I wasn't a room where I was the on the Asian person. So this one just had this little inkling of a story that I tied everything onto Rachel chew wasn't even a romantic comedy of this girl getting the guy was just her finding her power, finding herself worth through this journey that this jewel cultural identity made her powerful and that she was worth it. And so that that's really what I feel that when when I go to Nate now it's the same experience. I'm like, oh. Really John. I mean, he had an incredible week this week of movie. What a. And I put them on the list because they don't have a story. My movie item movie opened last week to a lot of money more than I could have possibly dreamt. And on Monday I get a call from the DJ saying, hey, we do screenings, and we do QNA's with directors. Would you be interested in coming in and interviewing John CHU?.

Air vaccine of that sequel is a snake eyes fight scene, and I feel like that's the the sequence that Jon CHU was allowed to do, you know, be John CHU and in, you know, knife see me to the whole heist breakout scene where the using Carter strain stuff. It's like, you know, the the most stylistic in John q. gets in this film. I feel like actually get gives him a chance to do that for whole movie in so enjoyable. I, I'm, I'm very happy that romantic comedies. Are you know making a comeback? I in. Just so much fun. I love. Love like the food porn shots. It makes me want to go visit China and. Yeah, I if I had any complaint about this movie, I would say that I think the first half of the movie kind of wax a intactness te or so. It kind of is like very much just like, oh, everything's going great, but second-half definitely makes up for that. But I'm sure if you're interested in seeing crazy rich agents, you probably saw it over the weekend. And the other thing I've been watching is better call Saul, which is now on AMC. It's as great as ever is. I just wanted to to say how great what's your name? The place, Kim Wexler maybe Christie, you know, her name. Scaping me, reassess, reassess Jorn. Yes, she's a phenomenal. I think she's actually the best part of that show. Yeah. Yeah. She's just so great met show that show is just like the best thing that is on television right now. If you asked me and if you aren't watching it, if you gave up in the first season, you know, go back, watch better, call Saul catch up because you were truly made missing great television, Jacob. What have you been watching. I went to theater in top with black klansman over the weekend. And I came to an interesting place because as magic interests, last film I had edited if you spoil their field articles about this movie before I got to see it. And so I went into this movie with two articles in mind, one by Candice, Federick and one by trae man gum to our freelancers, both who had very different opinions about both. We're poaching the film as black Americans and both had very divergent opinions on who was four and how presented itself. And so I went in really prepared to be torn bomb in in both directions by end up loving it. He loves a a, a tough wardrobe movie that is kind of as unforgiving as this one is. And people talked about this before already. So I don't want to dwell on black klansman too much, but to say, I thought it was excellent. I saw ten thirty in the morning and the people around me what it's like shell shocked in crying..

It's a, it's a pretty special feeling and we appreciate you guys taking the time to share those those thoughts emotions with us indeed. And here's a, here's another thing that's like kind of. So that's point one I wanted to make point to, and then I'm going to bring them together with point three point number two is you may or may not know. There is a new film coming out this week called crazy, rich Asians, and this is the one of the only films in the last twenty five years to feature predominantly Asian American cast to be about, you know, issues that Asian Americans encounter and have like Asian American people behind the camera. And as part of the filming crew, a lot of them. So. We'll we only get a shot at this every every twenty five years. And we want this to go well, and I was extremely moved this week when I saw this article in the Hollywood reporter cover story about the making of crazy, Rick Asians. You guys have kinda see this this article. Is isn't saying it's insane. What this article talks about the the headline is the stakes are high for crazy, rich Asians, and that's the point, and it's essentially a description of how John chew the director and friend of show as well as Kevin Kwan the writer of the novel, the twenty thirteen novel crazy reasons on which was based how they had to turn down an offer from Netflix in order to get this movie out into theaters, and Netflix offer them a trilogy of films, they offered them complete creative control and many, many millions of dollars in enough that like if they accepted this deal, they're like set for life or they would be actually crazy and they turn it down. They turn it down to go with a conventional release from one of the big movie studios. And the reason they did that was because they wanted this movie to be seen on the big screen and you know so many aspects of this article resonated with me and moved me. So apparently Kevin Kwan John CHU had already tried to rationalize the cash. Grab the article says, quote, maybe we donate a percentage of extra income to great causes to recalls the to having discussed night before, but where does that money go right back to trying to get to this position of getting us onto the big screen and quote the idea like maybe we could just take the money, donate it, but he's like, well, what would we do with that money? Try to get to the exact point that they were at at this moment in time. And so they took a massive risk and they talked about how like they were at the point in their careers where they could take a big risk. I'm going to quote here from Kevin Kwan. I could sense every lawyer on the phone call, shaking their heads of the stupid idealists. Here we have a chance for this gigantic payday instantaneously, but John and I felt the sense of purpose. We need this to be an old fashioned cinematic experience, not for fans sit in front of a TV and just press a button. We were gifted this position to make a decision. No one else can make. We just turning down the big payday for rolling the dice on the box office, but being invited to the big party, which is people paying money to go see us and quote..

"I mean, it still has that splashy like Hollywood appeal, which still does really well overseas. So I'll be curious that is all like how, and it has a little, a lot of really fun covers of pop songs. Oh yeah. Yeah, the soundtrack and the score. It was all just like. Is that like Chinese version of a yellow? Oh, yeah. That was one. I'm trying to remember what the other ones where it, but they were all like familiar songs. I was like, oh, nice little not there. Yeah, yeah. So director is John CHU who's done like two of the step up films, Justin Bieber documentary. And so the movie has this kind of up, you know, bright kind of like grace. It's kind of an agile movie like an and I think that really helps elevate. What is there some kind of like clunky plot turns and stuff like that, but but the movie has a real energy. I mean, I walked out of it feeling pretty pretty jazz. So I think that like here we are in mid August summer's almost over. I think it's a nice boost of of energy. Apparently it's tracking for eighteen million dollars plus domestic, which is pretty good on a thirty million dollar budget and good for a comedy. Yeah. Also, according to I'm Debbie, John, she was directing the in the heights movie which I didn't realize. So that's exciting. And that movie has been saved. Now from the Winston companies.
