"A movie. That that far gone And would be anywhere near the original. It almost seems to me like a sequel to come into America was tailor made to be released on streaming. And from the first hour that I've saw You know, you know, I kind of I kind of think that they hit the mark. I and I went in. I went in here. It's like the dizzy from the station. See, we're on a group text on. He sent the detainees to said it was horrible. So I went in. Going, okay. This is gonna be horrible. But I also went in with the same belief structure is you that this? There's no way that this can be good, and I found myself pleasantly surprised. At how well it was crafted. I will give you the exact opposite. I saw the law. The not, I was going to say long awaited. I don't know if anybody was waiting for but and this was shot at the same time is coming to America. The third movie in the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys. Three. And that was just God awful. It was it was it was tired. It was dumb. It was unbelievable. It was a movie that had no purpose to exist whatsoever. Perhaps there is a great script that could have been written and could have been shot. But the one that they chose was not the one I was. I checked out midway and just let it play and every now and again would look back up at the screen. Because it had been too much time in between. And the characters with they would they would just go holy they were just too different. What gave me pause on coming to America. Was the fact that Eddie Murphy is responsible for two of the worst Sequels in the history of films, which is the secret of 48 hours. Another 48 hours. And the third And the trilogy of the Beverly Hills Cops movies. Although Beverly Hills Cop too, was probably one of those movies where you can say the sequel was as good as, if not better than the original, But the third one. Oh, my God! What the hell were they thinking? It was just ridiculously dumb and and uninspiring. Went to the honey hole one to make you one. Why, But this is a thing because it wasn't like Beverly Hills Cop three was coming. Too late. Well, I think it was the director John Landis was well beyond his prime. You know, I think he's an overrated director anyway, but he was well beyond his prime, and the story was just awful. And to be quite honest with you If you watch the movie objectively, I don't think Eddie Murphy was into it. His Axel Foley In that movie is like a completely different character. And then they half ass drag guys from the From the first two. It was just it was. It was as if nobody really cared about that film. I think there was another film in there to be made it But that wasn't the one that they made. But I think you will be listen. You eat popcorn when you watch films at home. I've been known to. Yes, right. Well, pop some popcorn. Make yourself assassin France. I know your assassin France, man. Sit down when everybody else is asleep and pop it on. And you know what? I think you're gonna enjoy the hell out of it. You know for it being what it is. So my God, Joyce as a fresh E. Think of be honest, which I don't even know what it sounds fresh air.

"On guy was worried that they were just kind of weather for the money. You know, who knows what the motivations are? I like I didn't love it, but I liked it. And so that I went in with no expectations, but high hopes, and I was happy that I laugh. I enjoyed myself. Is it as good as the original know what else you know what usually is so you have Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall back John Emos James Earl Jones. But then you have some great editions with Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones. Wesley Snipes is so funny and has been really funny with a couple recent Eddie Murphy movies and you know he's usually known in his earlier career is a dramatic actor, but he is so good at the comedy stuff. So there's a lot to like here and plus, it's on Amazon Prime video. So if you already have that it's free to watch. It's a whole new generation seeing it did they need to see the first one. Look, if you watch this, you're not gonna be lost. But, yeah, absolutely. Watch the first one because the first one is just so good. And then you know, obviously you'll be comparing them and one of the biggest difference is for me. Was the fact that the first one is rated R. And this one's rated PG 13. Now the comedy in the first one. It's not nearly the raunchiest of anything Eddie Murphy has ever done, including his stand up, but I think they went a little further in the jokes. They were a little edgier. This one feels a little more family friendly, maybe a little more muted. Which is fine, maybe for the audience that they're going for. But coming from the original, I wanted something that was a little more edgy. What took so long? That's a good question. Eddie Murphy went in different directions with his career. He started doing more family friendly. Stop after that on took a lot more ownership in the in the stuff that he was doing after that, you know, I don't really know exactly what the reason was. Maybe The first one was a huge financial hit, I think was made for $35 million and made something like 288 Million, which is in $1988 a lot of money, especially for a comedy special for an already comedy. S O. I have to imagine that people wanted them to make it. But I know there were issues between Eddie Murphy and John Landis, who directed the first one. I don't know if that played into it in any way, but I'm not exactly sure. Also this weekend, the animated Disney feature Riah and the last Dragon, then that's in theaters and undisturbed plus but understand some theaters are going to show that no because they're not happy with this whole thing. You know the theater's want exclusivity on stuff, and they've reached deals with certain studios, Universal Warner Brothers, and for that the theaters get a little bit of the back end. They changed the terms on the ticket prices and how much they get. And for this, for whatever reason, Disney and Cinemark couldn't come to terms on it. Now it's it's still in a bunch of theaters. You can even watch it in theaters or streaming. But if you're gonna stream it on Disney, Plus, you're gonna have to pay for it. It's 30 bucks. But if you you know, compare that to the price of a ticket for the whole family than 30 bucks kind of comes out less, But I would say absolutely See it. You know, however, you can I don't know if you need to rush out necessarily this weekend, but it is a fantastic classic Disney animated film. Baby sees Jason Nathan's and thank you, Jason.

Vineyards Facing An Insect Invasion May Turn To Aliens For Help

"Bug recently arrived from China is munching its way across eastern Pennsylvania from there. It's poised to spread across much of the country. Killing trees and grapevines finds so scientists are considering something drastic importing other insects the bugs natural enemies from the place it came from NPR's. Dan Charles has the story. I was walking around the park near Allentown Pennsylvania and I didn't even notice the bugs at first then heather leach arrived the insect expert Berg from Penn state but if you take under these leaves sure enough they're climbing up underneath the ivy and then I realized they're all over. This tree spotted lantern flies. A marching column of gray bugs each one about an inch long black spots on their wings sucking sap from the tree. They're kind of ugly especially. When there's thousands of them you'll start to poke at them and you'll see how strong hopper there you see that they've just take off could be entertaining. You see a lot of kids running around playing with them trying to stomp on them spotted lantern flies. I showed up in the United States five years ago right here in Berks County. Nobody knows exactly how some eggs probably hitched a ride on shipping containers across the specific. Now there are hordes of spreading across Pennsylvania and beyond chances are they'll eventually reach most of the country. It's an insect that lays its eggs on on anything including things that get transported hops onto vehicles and can hold on. They don't seem to have any natural enemies here but they found lots of trees with sapped that they like. They've got a buffet out here if they can eat all of these plants and they don't have anything that's down so they're having a good time. They're having a party right. Heather Leach gets panicked calls for people with swarms of lantern flies on their houses or their trees. She tells them don't freak out. These bugs won't bite or sting but but they're not a joke either they really can destroy fix and the people who are seeing this first our vineyard owners like John. Landis vine crest winery west of Allentown uh-huh going. Landis is pressing grapes smiling. Harvest is a good time. He says but then I asked him about the Lantern Flies Anthony Turns series. We've never had a situation like this and forty years. If you start to decimate your vineyard we can cause people to go out of the wiring business. It's actually actually killed funds. Oh yeah definitely kills wise. We walk out into the Vineyard and sure enough. The section next to the woods is infested with lantern flies a lot of vines. It's our dead already. From last year's attack we had lantern pipe just kind of pouring out of these trees last year invading this area here and then down on this hill vineyard owners can spray insecticides protect their crop but that's costly and it can kill helpful insects like bees and ladybugs also it doesn't help with the bigger problem. The damage lantern flies can cause to whole ecosystems leach scientists or worried. They might kill off some trees in forests were also starting to see early indications of displacement of other insects and as a result displacement of birds as well but maybe she says if the problem came from China the solution Russian could to you see back in China. The lantern fly has natural enemies that hold it in check tiny wasps so small you can barely see them scientists from the US this department of Agriculture have brought two kinds of these wasps to the United States. They're under quarantine and a couple of USDA labs like the beneficial insect introduction laugh in Newark Delaware to USDA scientists. Amanda Stout and Kim homer lead the way into the quarantine room. We're all suited up in white overalls head to toe now. Next door is high security this quarantine zone. It's filled with these environmental chambers. They look like big refrigerators. homer opens opens one up and points me towards something in sealed containers. There's a little white thing about a quarter of an inch long with a dark in there that just the cocoon. This is one stage in the life cycle of a lantern flight killing wasp. The wasp lays eggs inside baby spotted lantern flies called nymphs the eggs hatch into larvae that feet on the nips and kilter so maybe they could do this outside. The lab in Pennsylvania's forests sounds kind of crazy releasing an invader to fight another invader but homer says really it could work. There are many many examples of successful and safe introduction of natural enemies. He says it's best when the natural enemies a specialist when it only tax invasive species you're trying to control so now he's trying to figure out whether these wasps only lay their eggs in lantern flies or if they attack. North America's native insects to getting answers. We'll take years in the meantime. The lantern flies will keep on moving. Dan Charles N._p._R. News.

"If I would have the day off of school, she taught about forty minutes away from our house. So it was like a different school district. So she would take me with her to classroom. And then I was really into count books as a kid, and I still am. So there was a really cool comic bookstore by the school where she taught. So when I would go with her, she would take me to this comic store and it was really cool because there was just stuff everywhere in that place. It was all haphazard. All out of order magazines were underneath and comics run top. So one day when I was in there, I think in probably second grade, I discovered famous monsters if someone they had a bunch of back issue. For like a dollar. So I just have my mom buy me a bunch of done, and it was great. I got like five copies of famous monsters that they'd never seen. And the first one I opened up head this photo that I was obsessed with, and it was a guerilla playing piano. And it said you slack like in three d letters coming out of it, and photos accompanying article about this. Guerilla playing the piano were amazing. It was like this guy in a gorilla suit wearing glasses directing, like in behind the film camera, and I was just really taking with. I liked guerrillas in the first place when I was a kid and I love like grill is in movies, but this movie just like totally outrageous in feed me as a kid for maybe like probably until I was in college, I never saw the movie. I just knew about it from reading about it, and I was always it was one of those movies where you see images, the kid is just burned into your brain for the rest of your life. So when I finally saw the movie, I was kind of shocked that it wasn't a horror movie, but I was also shocked by how much I loved it in how funny it was because I knew at that point I, I think I was in college when I first. Thought I knew John Landis was and I knew his movies because my dad was a huge John Landis fan. My dad's to this day is movies, animal house, so I was aware of what to expect, but I didn't expect it to be as good as it is especially for like a first time filmmaker being. I think he was nineteen years old when he made it. So it was like this rare time in your life when you see something as a kid and you idealize it and for years and years and years, and then you end up seeing in and it's like, oh, it's not what expected, but it just as just as great. So that's kind of like my history with the movie. And to this day, I think that it really holds up. I think it's a really funny and goofy and heartfelt and loving movie. There's a Blu Ray release of coming out. Are you involved with that at all? No, that's arrow films and Agfa handles Agfa handles theatrical for aero films. Yeah, we have a number of the Africa partners like arrow films, seven phones, then Iger syndrome. We have the Herschell Gordon Lewis library, and we have some Shaba others titles that we handle for celestial. So schlock came. About because we have Seattle corner. We rep it Seattle weekly. That's why we were all like the team is sitting around like, okay, what can we do for our house some day? Because we want to be a part of it. It's important and we looked at the huge slate of titles at all the theatrical partners had and earn titles. And the first one that pops out at us was schlock because it's been, you haven't been able to see it feeders since it was out. Basically, there's just no way to watch it. There's a couple of prints out there, collectors prince, but it's almost like it's unseen. Yeah, I only remember hearing about it. I've never actually seen it, and then it was so nice to finally get some of the origins and the different versions. Let's say, if see you next Wednesday, those announcements that are coming up throughout the movie because that's just been the longest running. John Landis joke for years of wears. See you next Wednesday. What is going to be the reference in this movie? Yeah, yeah, it's great..

"And i thought of a brilliant joke i have to tell you off the air i and i hear you anyway the but so when you make your movie in the in the old days in the old studio days and 30s and forties and fifties very often the director was not involved the studio had a composer mac steiner victoria were offered newman and mesa say here's a picture score it now but now i mean for many years the director sits with the composer and spots the movie i want music here this kind of music music fulfils many functions in a film but now deal would do sedan and do the screenplay or if you edited the film already or ordered a red alert evolved will the compe well it depends usually i give the composer the script before we shoot and we discuss it end day visit cutting room but they really work from the finished cut of the movie and then in the old days i remember on animal house the universe you could only here the composer play the piano which is quite different than a full orchestra and you didn't really hear the music till you were on the floor recording and it was terribly expensive and i had this i'm telling the story tomorrow night so if you're coming tomorrow don't listen wrote go to the bathroom you is fit when we came to score animal house the studio was amazed i got oddity kit elmer burns the so elmurr's on stage and he's quite impressive onstage yet shock of white hair he was in his mid 60s then i guess.

"Well i have about six dancing girls and there's a bit of a water belva now where do you have to understand when i was fifteen i went to school with before team but i went to school with peter oh and i met mr bernstein the first time when he took us to see the beatles that the hollywood bowl in nineteen sixty five which i'm still grateful for them and so i knew elmer for years and when i made animal house which was of extremely lowbudget film at universal i think was their lowest budget film at nine years when i finished shooting the head of the music department was this gruff old guy in on i'd long hair and beard average twenty said he looked at me and he said who do you want to score your picture and i said i'd like to ask gomer bernstein any sort of reared back any said quote elmer bernstein won't even return your call and i just stood there thinking oh yeah if elmer came the studio saw the movie and he said will john it's very funny but what do you want me to do and i had an idea i said i want you to score this elmer as if it was an extremely serious melodrama no matter what happens on screen no matter how outrageous or silly the score is intense and straight and up up till then in all movies scores tended to be comedic classic example was called wa wa music and classic example would be henry manzini's brilliant score for the pink panther it's funny music and elmer thought that was interesting he understood what i wanted he wrote a brilliant score.
