Well the amazing thing about the beginning of the movie opening is the talk about laser discs like in a production ads and stuff, so you're like. Oh my God. This is definitely a like an eighties throwback movie. If you're paying attention I thought that that was right in the. Yeah. That was an opening credits where you see the laser disc thing, and then you see like an absolute a production company, so it worked on it, which meant it probably have a lot of money and it's Nadine so that means that. The lovely citizens of Canada, gave half their money towards it and it was awesome. Thank you, thank you, Canada, there was a split. It's a split production between New Zealand and Canada on the Yes. Zealand as well, right. Let's this? I'M GONNA. Ask You right off the bat. Did you like this film or not? Let's discuss that part of it, so we'll start with Laura since I think Laura.

You know what I mean like There's some stuff that I did enjoy. The long the the longer I was there and watching it the further into the movie I got the more I was like accepting of what it was, but in the beginning, it was really tough for me just to be on. I'm right there with you in the very first time I watch this film. I'll be honest with you. I was like. I'll I kept saying was. How much did they make this for? They make for you know. And then I watched the second time and I I did like solitaire. Better and. And then when? I was I was really down on this film I completely all the way down until I found out what they pay, they made this movie for. Me was made for sixty sixty. Thousand Dollars Okay. MIC. Nadine dollars? That comes out to what about forty eight thousand dollars. somewhere in that right, and then how it works the Canadian dollar compared to the US, I think anyway, it was sixty sixty thousand Canadian dollars, so it's hard for me to imagine making that film for that with the effects that they had in. It the actors other. Sets were outside and it was very realistic. But that part is still pick nineteen ninety-seven. Right yeah. I picture nineteen ninety-seven. We'll be in the future. But so you gotta give him credit for doing that. Part of it from from a filmmaking side of it. You GotTa give them credit for being very resourceful, using things that probably they had access to, and and then this launched him into more films so summer of eighty four was their next their next film. That was mazars amazing film. Highly recommend it highly recommend. We'll talk about that one another time now, right yes. Turbo Kid I think guys missed a little bit of the charm of the Turbo kid movie Laura and I obviously like it more. I used to manage a video store in the late eighties in the nineties so.

Skaters are roller skaters by is in line skates. Jason Patric have a really young. Cast in it, and it's just absolutely ridiculous from beginning to end it kind of made Mitch Gaylord American. Anthem looked like citizen. Kane and That's the this movie coming out of the gate when they start, and you're like okay to topic future. And he rides his bike, and that it took a couple of minutes for me to go. Okay, it's a parody of all these movies that at least I remember from forty years ago and it is delightful. They hit everything on the head as far as. An. It's crazy. It's an and it's fun. It's it. I thought it was a charming movie personally I. I really enjoyed I, saw it on the big screen to was helpful. it's just it's an image. Kinda crappy movie well. I was GONNA. Say this. It's a love song to crapping for sure and I think the thing about it. Is You guys like B. Movies? So. That's something that it's sets in your kind of house on it especially Laura. Favorites matter of fact I've got a new one for you. I'll talk about later. But There's. That that John is a different type John rather than the average. You Know Hollywood, Film, Budget, movie and this when you know when you look at the Mount of money was. Put into this to make it I'm. They've made money I mean so they did not get it right. Don't forget. There's movies like re watched escape from new. York recently when that came out. We thought that was stupid as hell, but we loved it. Loved it from the beginning. Say So. That is the same I put that in the same genre. Just hope if should I mean so much of? It is just absolutely ridiculous. And then I watched the other night watch escape from la which.

The news comes from Twitter user, and youtuber long sensation who simply tweeted out a name, along with the addition of quotes, I'm not joking. Kentucky's, Jason schreier known I reliably sources tweeted back, I can't confirm. This is true. And that is hilarious. The first one was called duty for modern warfare. So obviously, the fourth one fourth one is called call of duty modern warfare video games are just. Third. Jason also later discussed in the game as a quote soft reboot, and quote, and euro gamer has a run on the report, claiming its own sources that validate the name stories. It's important to note that collar duty modern warfare is not the same as the original two thousand seven modern warfare, which is full which in its full title. It's called duty for modern warfare mode again. Shipped too many call duty this however will be the fourth modern warfare game just in case you were getting yourself confused. I am. Yeah. Fran it's a lot of college talk, a lot of modern warfare semi day. Yeah. What's your thoughts on the title here? First of all, definitely, a little surprised because there's been so many call duties, and certainly modern warfare and advance warfare and this warfare, but it seems like they're sticking with it. It's just it is a little odd to me that they would go back to that name. But I mean, whatever who cares. Like gotta war was got a war, and like. Do we really care at the end of the day, if we see a trailer and the image sticks with us? I it's not like I'm gonna forget that it's called modern warfare. And it's twenty nine thousand you know what I mean? Exactly. And I also think it goes back to the roots. Everybody knows call duty for modern warfare that name is synonymous in that multi players shooting. John Rao, they've had the Remo mastered recently a couple what a year ago or so. And so you have that title in your brain, and you're thinking to yourself, man. I'm excited for more. If you're average gamer, like myself, sometimes, you get confused on which years, which, you know, trae arc sludge Amarillo who's doing Kenny ward. I don't know. But when I see duty modern warfare, I know okay, this is the game John round. The gets you make a really strong point, which is it is synonymous with one of most beloved versions of duty multiplayer and from that studio originally as well. Right. And so it's exciting to go back to that. And that seems to be the message that is possibly coming down the pike

"You? Okay. Took them out of the will. He's rebelling. I said he's twenty one. He didn't rebel. He was he was too busy being a good, son. Then. I said, you are no son of mine is what I said, I kind of heard if you heard of this band, Florida Georgia line, he didn't go that far though. He does have good we share taste. But how do you not? Let's make any sense. It makes sense. Doug Allen is offering to go. Visit him for many. He put air quotes around. Visit no. I still care dearly about him. I'm going to try to reform him somehow. Visit do if you don't if you don't like rock or something like that will be part of John Rao, but he has plenty of rock and roll bands the likes like not feel like a jam band kind of guy like a widespread panic or. No, no, he's not we lost. No. He likes Radiohead stuff. I like Radiohead by the idea. I don't like, you're right. It has to be rebellion has no way. A lot of people are like, hey, Eric. How come you're not talking about the Muller report as driving us into a lot of radio Muller? You know, why? Because I consider it to be done and over with now, it's about politics you're going to run for office. You're gonna impeach it's not a real thing. It's about whether or not impeaching gets you more power or whether it gets you less power. It's not about anything anymore. And there's really I realized over the weekend with the mullahs report for all this idiotic twenty four hour news. We have in the analysis, and hey, you know, a bright idea at CNN or MSNBC or FOX's the guy who stands up and says, hey, you know, what I think we should put a ninth person on the panel. Wow, man. You've got some ideas. So all this. So called analysis you never gonna get what's real the the only thing that matters. If you look at that Muller report, the Ilia matters you find out from there is that. There's nothing the government can do to protect you from Russian disinformation or any other country. This is this is the lesson that won't be learned. I'm the only one bringing it up. If you're listening to me now from the far left of the far right or anywhere in between. As long as you automatically believe a story that confirms what you already knew that you knew as long as you don't reform you see it's in your hands. Your the only one that can do anything about any entity that is continually lying to you. The Russians and now the Chinese anybody else who wants to follow their lead have got your number. They know who you are you see you put yourself into a silo. It's in your Facebook profile. It's in your Instagram profile that part on Facebook and your profile Rory tossed him build the wall. You put yourself in that silo you made your self. Easily found out and also from the left the part where you put I'm hashtag metoo. You put yourself in that silo the Russians the Chinese the North Koreans with your bumper stickers about who you are. And what you believe all over the place. Now, these foreign actors know exactly how to rile you up. And here's the news that I'm here to bring you that. No, one else will your government cannot do a damn thing to protect you. This is an arms race, guess what they can put Russia can do it. And put a tag on it makes it look like the North Koreans and the North Koreans can make it look like the Chinese Chinese can make it look like it's coming out of Iowa. And it's never going to end. This is your job and your not willing to do it. Your government cannot protect you so long as you are easily going to believe every story that simply confirms what you know you. You already know. So we're gonna talk a whole hell of a lot about impeachment is a political thing. Nancy Pelosi knows it's it's a it's not a winner. She's been around. She saw what the Republicans did to themselves in the nineties. We've gotten to twenty nine we got all the way to nineteen was Clinton. Impeach ninety nine or ninety eight we've got all the way almost to the new millennium. Where one president had been impeached, and he wasn't removed from office saved by one vote in the Senate. Andrew johnson. I only out there because I know millennials have no idea that they probably think that oh well every four or five of them get impeach. I'm willing to bet that most millennials believe that if you're impeach your autumn removed from office, even though you have the Clinton example right from the end of the nineties. Still too long ago to look at we got all the way through to the end of the nineties with just one president being impeached. I remember people wanted a big impeach Bush. Now impeach Trump. It's purely political. It's a political story. The Muller reports is a couple of things there was no coordinated thing between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. And now, it's all political. Do you think there's enough in there because there are stories that we've seen from the three or four books that are already out about how Trump acts behind the scenes? Somehow you're gonna impeach guy because he ordered someone else to fire somebody about an investigation that found nothing happened. Okay. Good luck with that. That's not real. That's a political question. It's it doesn't sound good. Okay. Let's get into this. Do you know why we know that that Trump made that phone call? Because Trump made everybody available to the special prosecutor. And then after the report was read was was made he did not declare executive privilege, which he could have which would have wanted up in the courts way pass twenty twenty executive privilege when basically the concept why does the president have executive privilege? The idea is when you're sitting in the Oval Office, and let's say it's a time of war. You want people to say what's on their minds. You don't want people worried about being subpoenaed two years later, and then holding back and for that reason, you have executive privilege. So the only reason, you know, about these ten incidents is because one Trump cooperated completely made everyone available and to once the thing was written did not declare executive privilege in certain areas. And so that's why it's out there. So it's out there. I don't care. I, you know, it's up to people to in the realm where people should be arguing it's in the realm of politics now. But that's all it is. It's a political question. It's not a question of whether he should be or shouldn't be. Impeached. The question now for politicians is will impeaching him. Get me more power or will it get me less power. I'm gonna talk to you like that. Because that's what they're really thinking. And the kabuki that goes on twenty four hours a day on your television is is just that. It's show if you wanna fall for it, you probably haven't learned the lesson that I told you from the beginning. So let me repeat it again. Your government can do nothing to protect you from meddling with disinformation in our elections. So long as you are willing to automats believe any story that simply confirms what you already know that you know, and that applies to every single person listening hashtag resistance, hashtag build that wall and everything in between. We don't have much time. But let's do this, ladies.

It's a good time to reflect. All right. So the first question is if the last year, we're a movie of your life. What would John Rabih says he does John Rao for the movie of my life last year folks show was adventure? Why? I mean, the lows my first time as a mom navigating a newborn and going through all the leaps in the phases. And then try to bounce business and marriage, and it was an adventure to save. The least. Definitely adventure. Because in any adventure movie. There are moments of doubt there moments when the characters face huge challenge you and deepen it. I thought it just said to name the John, right? I know, but I want to expand the best. There's also through liberation and victory. I felt like all of last year. It was an adventure. I agree. I love that. We both put that. Okay. What does the second question? Number two. What were the two or three major themes that kept reoccurring? So. You wanna give them an one example? Some examples were deeply moving times with friends and family making difficult decisions in the face of economic crisis. I put learning to grow learning to adapt. And through it all maintaining gratitude read the question, again, what were two or three major themes that kept recurring. I put learning how to embrace change. Was one second one building structure around our new normal. And then the third one I put was plugging into real life more than digital life in D. Good ones. Okay. Number three. What did you accomplish this past year that you are most proud of this can be in any area of your life? I want to hear e said.

And I said, you know, what, you know, miracle I want I want the ability to change and the ability to grow in my weaknesses and later that year that happening started to change that was my prayer. Oh, what was the question? Again. What did you accomplish this past year that you're most proud of watching teeny girl getting back into the best shape of my life? Little drawing closer to God and challenging myself to start and finish the bible in one year, which I'm still on that journey started in October of last year.

"Thank you for making this. And then the other reaction has been from older people people in there when I say older keeping nine I'm fifty. So I just mean fifties sixties seventies even eighties who are just happy that were being reminded of this again that this didn't disappear that somewhere between six hundred thousand and one point two million Iraqis died and torture came back and the rule of law was challenged in a major way, and and that we're not letting it slip away. So I get a lot of people coming up to me like that as well and added pressure on a narrative, filmmaker when you take on this type of question where maybe under doc. Rented and not extremely well. Understood by the populace, but this actually really happened. And so what kind of extra responsibility? Do you have in terms of your artistic choices and making a film like that? It was very tricky. And really that extra responsibility just boiled down to one thing, which is mounds of mounds and hours and hours of research reading every article every interview every book, we even hired our own journalists to go interview about a dozen people off the record to make sure what we were doing wasn't off base. And you're right. There's whole periods of the record with Cheney that are really hard to dig into there's millions of documents that have disappeared. He's certainly won't ever say anything in an interview. So, you know, we say it at the beginning of the movie, we did our best. And when there were areas where we really really couldn't find out what happened we acknowledged it in the movie or we'll do a stylistic interpretation. And ultimately, I feel a pretty darn good about the result. I just read. A piece by Chinese biographer who if anyone was going to take out the blades on this movie. It would be him and really is complaints. When you read them pretty tiny. And they're pretty weak. Big complaint was like, well, how a burden was a really qualified company. That's why I gave them a no bid contracts. I read that. I was like really that's your defense and his defensive Cheney tweaking the intelligence just boils down to now he didn't do that. So there's always gonna be those attack dogs that come out of movie like this. And they try and insinuate that. It's not true. But it's held up quite well, let's particularly impressive because you not only chose to take on a very complicated topic. But you also chose to try to weave comedy into it. So how hard was it's choose where to insert the comedy into. What is largely quite a tragic story. Well, we felt like the world we're living in now. There's so many different tones and genres that are all intermingled. A great example is the movie get out, which I'm not sure what you call that horror film, a satire on race feels like more and more. We've slipped outside the traditional confines of John Rao. And no, greater example than the current president's who you wanna laugh at 'cause he's like a cartoon character. But then you realize the tragedy of what he's doing and a lot of this movie tracks with the rise of the Republican party in the Reagan revolution, which you know. Hey, it's a fact they did it they succeeded and some of those beats are pretty ridiculous and some of the things that Cheney and his cohorts did they're fairly obvious. And sometimes they get a little ridiculous. So we wanted to make sure we had all those tones in there that even during those grim W Bush years. We were sad. We were demoralized. We were horrified. But sometimes we laughed. Sometimes you know, we had to rally together. So there was really an attempt to the movie to reflect that in the world that we live in today and have that feeling of lots of different feelings and also it's great to 'cause it never settles in any kind of set formula. And we really wanted the audience to be on the edge of their seats. When they watch this movie, the feeling of anything can happen, whether you'd certainly see that it's a compelling story and compellingly told, but it involves a lot of decisions along the way as the greatest hits of.

Like, I like how the fuck is that even possible like I can't comprehend that. It's really a lot of dislike I mean people like the core kids caught circus tricks. You know, basically is, but there's a place for all of it. It's not smile or anything I've helped create some of that just by some of the things we're building for Travis and nitro all these different things. I just a place for all of it. You know, a street rider. Not going to like that stuff. And he's gonna think it's dumb. You know, as maybe those dude things street writings done, but I love every single individual John Rao of BMX. I think it's amazing. And there's a place for all of it. You don't have to like what anybody else is doing. That's what's cool about it. You know, it's like a picture of everybody just did the same for grinder same, you know, all the same manual. I don't know, man. There's just so many crazy tech thing. Like, I'm more intrigued by like, the real techy gnarly street stuff, that's kind kinda faster. But I was never that. Dude that you know, I couldn't do that. I love St. outings, one of my favorite things. But I was like trying to find the most monster truck -able thing to do and try to get a little era. But and it destroyed my wrist and my brain. But that's what I like doing, you know, and it's it's not for everybody like that kind of style. But that's what I be an ex is awesome for and I just sucks when you hear people talking shit on this. Group or that group, and you're not in this clique who gives the fuck. Go ahead and be in your clip in your clicks. And and your your little clans that you're in. That's fine. That's great. But I just I I wish the they just didn't talk as much shit. It's like it's just kinda dumb. And it's just tons of negativity around it, you know. Well, you know, I think that's one thing to everybody in BMX now so highly specialized like, I grew up like IBM x Ray st-, I wrote flatland reports, and you know, it might time it was like street and park was kind of the same thing. But now it's kind of its own deal. But I tried. I was never, you know, never any good avert scare the fuck outta me. But like, I tried it. It's just you know, it's funny dirt jumping I did that you know, now, it's like everybody's so highly specialized, and I was lucky that I just did everything I look back at Neo guys. Like, you know, you know, she's well, even Mira. I mean McCoy Asada like everybody just wrote everything, you know, there was that area. You know, even high everything. Yeah..

"I just impressed by that. Our community partners are really important to us and Vancouver. The industry we do a lot. But it's so small, and there's a lot of different organizations that play a part in it, and we kind of become like a close knit family. So I think yeah. Just fostering those relationships and keeping maintaining them is really important to us. And this year we were able to really expand on that. Usually, we're all like, oh, yeah. I'll post cheer pose. If you. The extent of their relationship. But this year, we took it to another level. And we all co hosted an indie mixer back in October. And it was again sold out because we all came together and made it happen. And I think that's like a test of into this industry. Especially in Vancouver is that we all kind of band together and make incredible stuff happen. We support one another that's really important. And then just being like, it it truly feels like support as opposed to like Morita said sometimes it is like you like my stuff, I like your stuff, and we tweet each other cool, and that is great. And it definitely helps. But having a sense of community is where really kind of changes into something different. It's so true. I think we would be here with this many people and. The opportunities that we're able to offer to filmmakers as prizes. I don't think that would have been possible without the connections that we've made through this. And it's even it comes down to like, oh, hey, I really need this like do you know, how to do this? And then like Vafa or crazy. We'll come in. And be like, oh, yeah. We can we can give you a door Heiser weekend weaken like provide like support in this way. And then we're like, oh, great. Thank you guys so much because we were so lost. And it's just we do need you. And I think that that goes both ways as well. So yeah, it's kind of a beautiful synergy. Speak. Rob. Talk corporate to me. And then as far as the films this year. So what are some of the kind of bullet point numbers as far as you know, how many submitted how many played go for it two hundred sixty nine dead. So like one hundred and fifty more than we've had we have one hundred one hundred more than last year. Yeah. Was scary. That was very especially. We are getting emails saying what do I do? Now. I don't have the time, but they managed to get through them. She was incredible. Yeah. And we are screening thirty nine films this year, which is nine more than last year. I believe or five more than last year five more five more five more. Yeah. Yeah. I think forty percent representation for female directors. Yup. Which is huge. Versity Nici Sundance because they did the same thing this year. They'll forty percent representation as well. So let's get it to fifty. And it is something that I even talked about it in one of my post like especially with the after dark screening looking at the QNA after of the directors involved, and at least with that one that one I think was about fifty fifty. Yeah. That is amazing by itself. Just not only have that many female directors, but especially in John Rao films and intersectional genre. Where for whatever reason? People think oh girls don't like horror like bullshit. What girls are you around? Like, I know so many women who are into horror one of which is sitting right here. And you I mean, you had a film this weekend as well. Did. So definitely talk about that. Oh, yeah. It's camping trip. I wrote it, and I just wanted to write something set in an RV because I really like RV's. So I wrote a story about a couple on an RV trip. And then things go awry. That they do. And it is it is one of the rare films where you cannot really talk about it too much because there are multiple twists and turns. Sometimes I get concerned for working relationship because of. Is there? So amazingly disturbing. I tend to kill off the men in my film. So you have nothing to worry. Oh, that's true. I'm the I'm the hero in the men always died. Fair fair enough John watches, so but yeah, you're you're fine for now for now. I was like, yeah. If the tone of your film speaks anything to like everything was fine for a while. So we should have stayed off his phone..

"Like that across the country. And there's a domino effect in the whole system. This free farm feeder system that college football is the NFL falls apart and probably two or three years. It's only the fact that it's a free farm. Feeder system, it is it is big time promotion for these guys coming into the league. And I know the NFL wants to emphasize promoting their their team brands over there player ranch for the most part. But there is certainly value in you know, in knowing who these guys are coming into your league. And getting you excited about them. Same Roseanne be put in the rule where they didn't want the high school guides jumping into the pros anymore because you know, except for LeBron James, and the occasional absolute superstar, most of them are just sort of anonymous guys, you know, had seen play because they didn't play college basketball. So the NFL loves college football. They loved them for that reason. And and some other reasons, and that's that's why this this is not a scenario that would play out. But it's interesting to pretend Andy sometimes it's fun to have a little we'll fancy time. Yeah. I mean, I don't know. I my issue with fantasies you can create no boundaries. So there's action no creativity because there are no boundaries. You don't have to use your brain. And think and angle anything around you just can't it's a free for all. So I disagree. I think it's a it's a bad question. And it's a bad John Rao fantasy. All right. Let's let's take on. This is a this is a different Paul. This is Paul L. I I'm going to build a question or two off of Paul's question here. But if an offense is playing against an amoeba defense, you know, a defense that is shifting late and moving around we saw it. I I think we last discussed it in depth when the Browns nearly came back and beat the ravens a week seventeen. And what they didn't second half that game. I if I if it evens doing that is there reason why the quarterback when just snap the ball early. While the fenders were all trying to move around standing up not set as they were going to be set of. I would ask you Andy. When defense is do that when they do late ships. Are they picking up on tips that that allow them to know when is not too late, basically? Yeah. Well, first of all, by the way to Greg who said had that bad fantasy question. I would implore him to send in another one. Because it's it's a smart bad questions. I want to give him some credit there. It is. It's just a fantasy label makes it out to be correct. Yes. I mean, so Greg within two Jesus at the end, by the way for what that's worth it for the rest of our listeners. I would hope you'd send in another one as far as Paul's question here. First of all the amoeba fronts. The risk is if the offense just snaps the ball. And then they run the ball right down your throat because everybody just runs forward and bulldozes you but typically amoeba affronts coming obvious passing situations. So the defense doesn't have to worry about the offense. Snapping the ball to just run it down our throats, most of the time and offense. That's that'd be a pretty aggressive check for an offense to get into. But the problem is offenses, don't and obvious passageway shins. The defense is almost the offense. They're almost the aggressor there, and you're setting your protection based on the pass rush. So when you get an amoeba front and everyone's moving around if you were just a snap the ball quickly. It's very unlikely you're going to have everyone. On the same page with the protection because they all for protection to work. Everybody has to agree were the middle of the defense begins, basically. That's why a lot of times you hear the quarterback calling out. Hey, fifty four is Mike five fours to Mike. It's because we need to have the Mike be the same. And everyone's mind because my assignments based on I've got guide number two from the Mike. I've got the second. I got the first guy from the Mike. I've got the Mike himself us help past protections work. So if you can't established who's who in the past pro that's very risky, and there are not a lot of teams that would do that..

"And this man who survived and you were going to get the same bone, tingling chills that you got from the sixth sense, which is about ghosts and scary stuff. And that movie was secretly not that John Rao at all. It was secretly a superhero movie what missed yet. And so split pulls off the same thing. Which is hey. Going into this crazy, psychological thriller from the man who just made the visit which is this horror movie in this. You know, this house pictures horror movies, and he's back tingling your spine all over again with this movie about a guy with multiple personalities kidnap people and tortures them and old man, you're gonna get it's no it's a super villain origin story. It's the same trick. Which I think is so thematically perfect to have the sequel do the same magic trick again and pull it off again. And in retrospect, there were a lot of signs. I think. But the the the posters. Yeah. We kind of mirrored each other. And also as we were watching the movie, I think it definitely became apparent. There's a point in split where James mcevoy's character is kind of going through a transformation sequence in a train. And I was thinking to myself. We're back in. Cranes. This is really interesting. That's when like my my like, John Regan's started tingling because I was like reading do this. Are we go in there? And. Yeah. By the end of that movie. I almost jumped out of my chair. It was so good. I was just talking about this began after seeing glass with friend. And I I really believe that moment in that theater is one of the greatest cinematic Ling's I've ever had just that that level of I can't believe this is actually happening right now when that music kicks in the end of split and camera pans down, and you actually see ruse Willis sitting there, it's unmatched. It's like, I know that you guys there are a lot of people. I won't put it on you. But there are a lot of people who kind of call that. A gimmick. I do not care. I call it. Whatever you want the feeling I had. Is worth ten times. Why pay to see that movie? It's not a gimmick in my opinion. It's more that a a twist ending that reveals that this film split is part of the unbreakable universe. Does not in my opinion. Redeem what was overall a an engaging film. Right. The the other thing too. By the way, is that. It's a great twist for a very very niche group affil- nerds, right? Like his twists the impact of the Heff. Slowly. Yeah. The the impact has dwindled to a very small audience, and that hasn't been very good for him to I think, so I don't know. So here comes glass, which this weekend as of us recording this episode. It's already made about one hundred million dollars worldwide the budget for this movie was run twenty million dollars. Again, self-financed m night on interviews was saying how he felt like he was at a casino like every time. He every time he got the roulette wheel. He just put it all again. He just like double down right rather kids are like what are you doing? What are you doing man? That's my college right there. He I mean, he said that if he if. Glass did not do. Well, it would impact mortgage. That's what he said. It would have to do something about his house in his living situation is what he said, I think he's gonna be absolutely just fine. Because there's already it's not like there are some estimates that this would make like over sixty million dollars opening weekend that did not happen. But it's still gonna be a relatively solid hit. And so gone is any pretension of this being like a backdoor sequel, it's very clearly marketed as a sequel to unbreakable and split like that's all been revealed in the marketing, although the movie still does wholesome surprises. Deaf cannot to what did you think of glass? Well, they've..

"Where like when he was making a breakable Disney was like, can you not say comics much? Yeah. For door cer- Bibi's, and it really feels like he's making this movie with that mindset, without, you know, still in place not like everyone knows about this shit. Now, will you were saying also like walking out of the theater, you're like this movie feels like Shamlan arguing that he invented the comic book. Like every superhero movie of the twentieth century unbreakable been part of the medic universe. In that. It's born out of our like common delusion like our cultural delusion the end. He's like, no, no, no. I was just kidding. They're great. And we all have to believe it's like literally like, computer pan. The may see it the more. They believe I will say that the secret society that feels like a newer kind of invention for the John Rao very much because they have no motivation, really usually it's power money, but whatever what's driving them status quo. It's weird. It's look there's there's a basis I feel like we haven't seen stuff like that before in superhero fiction. Right. I can't think of accompli that's ever even introduced idea like that. Because usually secret organizations complex the hellfire club. They are also Mr. empowered and they're just trying to use it for their own gain. Or whatever, you know. But this notion of like, it's it's very like current political climate of just like our people literally just trying to like. Convince the citizens of their country to not want to not ask for more to be comfortable being given shit hand. I read it as PC culture. Really? No, cool. Thank god. The woke police woke. No one can have fun. Yeah. Became you'll just get on seige tell jokes like why can't comedy funny? Just drives me crazy. And it's not like laughter is sort of an involuntary response where something is truly funny. You will laugh at it. And if you're not laughing, maybe it's a bad joke. Maybe it's because it's based on a fucked perspective. But when you see a guy up there, and you're like, what is he going to say next? You know, ridicu- reduc. Okay. What? Hill. To the bucket a quarter at that's yeah. Look, david. I don't know if you know this, but the job of comedians to say the things that the recipe. Psyche have to walk that tightrope. And you know, and they're three leaf clovers out there trying to keep you guys, quiet. But you know, you're there you're telling the truth, and I'm thankful for it. I really yeah. I go to the comedy cellar for all much with failing. I do think it's a crazy folding back in on it self thing to be like this movie is about normal people trying to like, it's it's almost like a white supremacy thing where you're just like using culture constantly like, and of course, we know the white man is inferior is superior to all others that is the status quo everyone else know their place. You know, sure, you took that new direction. I don't know. Going to say, no, you know, it's a little like syndrome from the incredible to carry on incredible perspective. Yes, he's different in the he wants to be super powered everyone to be super powered, right? So whereas they want just to know all normal only basic, and what I like about this as opposed to like what incredible to is doing where it's like, okay. Like, Odin, Kirk and keener, or like, representing different sides of this sort of argument, but the heroes are going on unabated, you know, they're sort of just like pawns in this game. They don't even know they're part of in this this mid trunk of the movie where the grants to a hall. It's all these characters starting to really like question themselves, you know, and they're reality and the audience like questioning, it's a weird thing to like make an audience a movie that you've been building up with nineteen years of like expectations and hopes and dreams and then halfway through like, why do you fucking idiots wanna see this movie? It's a weird move weird move for the end of your trilogy. Feels like it's shaming the audience to buy tickets to the movie, they want to see here's what I think wants Mr. glasses waking up and starting to be Mr. glass, you see something's going. I get real excited. I'm up at all at this point. Now, it's really like a chess moves movie where he's doing all these cryptic sort of things you see him logging onto computer..

"Roll up TV's robots. You can cuddle. It's also where some companies reveal concepts for feature products like walking cars and flying taxis. Joining us to discuss our Jeffrey Fowler tech columnist at the Washington Post. Welcome to you. Hey there and Jack Stewart is senior writer for wired on the transportation desk. Hi there. Hello, jack. Let's begin with you. There are really some interesting car concepts this year one in particular. We we saw was this walking car that Hyundai is showing it looks like something out of Star Wars. It does. Yeah. It looks a little bit. Sinister. It's kind of a car crossed with them. Insects. Maybe. Each corner has these wheels on extendable legs the convinced just about any direction is that for common usage like in a street or for something else. Well, that billing it as kind of all sorts of uses that we should stress that this is very much a concept that just an idea for how the future could begin changes. We use them in different ways. Perhaps you that autonomous cars coming collect. You think without driver inside? I climbed the few stats. Particularly say if you're a wheelchair user that you don't have to try and get to the string together for back the car because because climate up the legs. Give us these things. Zoster area. The roads impossible that this college extends out it's like clemson's over walk like a mammal all like an insect can sort of emulate either gate and get over most objects and then obstacles that way. I don't think it's something we're going to be on the roads in the very future. But it's interesting that people are beginning to think of how things could be done differently. We're very much used to our little metal boxes on four wheel. Yeah. Start to change that interesting. Well, Jeff, let's talk about that A I robots that seems to be the thing at CS this year. Yeah. The CAS used to be the show where we would come to see what did you laptop was or what did you gadget was really now much of the conversation about what the software is doing how artificial intelligence is a kind of enabling once ordinary thing just to become connected to other things then automate or gonna make your life better in ways. Maybe you didn't even ever imagine. You need it such as a suitcase that follows along behind you when you're at the airports on its own. It won't get confused and follow someone else. Well, it might have used the very latest it, computer vision and artificial intelligence on technology to make it identify you these cameras all over it. They mix it identified you at your body. And then it tries to follow you on it. It says up to six miles per hour. So I suppose you could outrun it when I tried it. I kept up with me about seventy five percent of the time, which is a lot better than we've ever seen before this this. I e of the follow along suitcase has been around at CS for many years and most of them did not work, but this one came closer than ever so Paret technology progress, what about a robot that can do a lot more than just follow you around. There are so many different kinds of robots here at S that is one of the fascinating things to see robots that want to do things for you. They wanna move around your stuff. They want to know your lawn. They want to bake your bread. And there's also the whole John Rao of robots here that they just wanna make you follow them. And this is kind of an interesting new era because our social robots where they don't really do anything except for trying to become a vendor of the family or maybe the pets. And we're seeing more and more that I I I'd say this wind back it was kind of like a cat. But but it, but it was really really really needy and just kept coming up to pick it up. A little a little too needy. That one that one was a liberal media. I'll say that one push me over the edge. But you know, what's so interesting to me is how how clearly how we're so willing to imbue these things with with human like characteristics. We it's amazing how much people will actually care last year. Some you showed up let's say robotic dodge here. And then afterwards, I took one home, and you're gonna take it with me on the train around San Francisco. And like I though even though he's just a little plastic and metal. Oh, wait till the robots are on tender. We might think differently Jack you saw a concept for a flying taxi. Is that going to happen in our feature or near future? Apparently that coming quite soon. Whereas the robots were very cute and cuddly, they're all getting a little bit scary. Looking quite useful. So we'd have to walk looks like a robot. So then bell. Famous helicopters displayed this taxi concepts, but it was full size. This is five seats two vehicle with six electric fans around the talked about eight feet across. Displayed it in the middle of the conference center. It's a very glossy black finish. But you don't come around the corner that is just bad Murray posing funny. He just to people that are trip over that features. They out this. This thing on the ground. So it'd be like. Like when I flying across cities about our record by twenty twenty five could be offering some sort of commercial service to fly over traffic and something like that. Well, well that doesn't sound sinister. That sounds like a dream here in L A. That's what they're promising. They're getting together with the likes of. Business plan for how we would share rights in these things. Toll building you with us. Pat on the talk. Vehicles. They would fly you to another tool building drop you off because electric that quiet Sarah, Fisher, bent on polluting that wouldn't be like, well, the helicopters that people get frustrated with rabbi would actually be a nice acquired a service that people might want to actually take a bump. I would. And Jeff we're talking about the the cuddly aspects of a I, but there is also a sinister aspect to that a lot of forecasters are saying that AI is going to replace a lot of us in the workplace. Yup. It can replace a lot of jobs. I mean one that's actually when she gets here at CS. That's actually already working is. If you hail a list, competitor Uber. You open the app one they might send you a self driving. What let's just running a program where if you off any testing along the Las Vegas strip driving cars now, they still have humans minders in them right now. But it's already thing. I just pulled one up as a random consumer when I ride on Sunday here to see, you know, got him for right? So a lot of people who make money right now driving transporting things. So that's one area. That's that's going to bring some big change. All right. I wanna thank you so much for joining us starting us from CAS Jeff.

"This episode is our fandom movie league draft episode. We're going to be talking about all the John Rao, and the kind of John re-based movies that are coming out in twenty nineteen. If you want to hear our discussion in our stretches in our mental acrobats that we do to figure out what's on this list. Become a patron, and we have our picking the slate over there on our patriotic feed. So I join me we've got legendary in command, Nick English. I am the reigning defending mental acrobat of the phantom podcast. Yes. Yes. That is true. Winner of last year's FM L is Jeff Thomas don't you forget it? It's now it's now forgotten because we started new game. That's no that is one hundred percent accurate in all competition. But. Same time scoreboard. All right. Well, it's blink right now. Jeff scoreboards blink. The two thousand eighteen type down to the bottom and there. Else? That's gonna go away. That's going to go away. Don't worry about that. Don't worry about that. All right. So just like in super smash brothers. We have a new appeared Joe drowsy from the protagonist podcast and the show that we stole the adjusted box office score from is joining us for this competition. Welcome joe. Thank you for having me on. I am excited to see how this auction format adjusts the game play. Yeah. We mixed it up on you, Joe. So all right live from the fan of I am brand new show. Why don't we get right into this? The rules of the game. We have forty through forty four movies almost forty three forty four movies on our slate. I have a algorithm setup to randomly pick a movie, and then we we eat you're going to start out with three hundred let's call them, phantom bucks. Because they call them last year. Is that what we call them us? Yeah. At least at least I'm nothing, but consistent but say, let's try that again. So Nick doesn't interrupt. I'm getting. Consistent here. Joe? It sounds like Brandon reedit that. So it sounds like Brandon actually knows what he's talking about. And not just make no no takes way too much work to make it sound. Like, I know what I'm talking about. So three hundred dollars three hundred bucks is what we're going to start with. It's really it's really changed the game. Because we're adding an additional three hundred this time. We'll so we'll see what the average spend. And we have thirty three movies last year. We did. But. Interesting. There's still only so many blockbusters though. So we're going to go, and we're gonna bid for each of these. And we'll take the owner the owner on the on the scoreboard. And when that movie comes out it will using box office. Mojo dot com, we will figure out how much money that's made using rotten. Tomatoes critic score. We're going to figure out what the critics thought about that. So if you make a million dollars, but you only get a ten percent on the run tomatoes. That's what ten dollars hundred thousand thousand dollars. She should have done ten million. I should've should've done math on air. Math live. Yeah. So we're going to so rotten tomatoes score. What could extinct about the movie will affect your box office score. All right. Our very first movie up on the auction block. Don't doubleclick single. Oh, we are scarring. So last year on our auction block all the big marvel movies came at the very end were like the last five or six this time. Our very first auction item is captain marvel. I'm going say the one dollar. Geez. How much did you say seventy five you should know by now I start out big. One on dumb movies, seventy five I'm going seventy five. Seventy five gold once seventy six seventy that game nine. Why don't they nine? Why did you just say eighty because I don't want to say eighty bucks on this? But you know. Can going once seventy nine going twice.

"But was surprised by the claim before impact is pretty well documented and well seen over the previous generation of gaming in a major way it's possible to as larger impact, and before I suppose, but I thought it would experts in this and get your opinion. What do you think what is resident evil to impact on gaming, and is it comparable if not greater than four? It was a damn good resident evil favorite. In fact, the character the split that was like the two. System, right, or whatever you would pick up. If you picked up an item on your first playthrough wouldn't be there. The second time for on your second one. Yeah. And it wasn't like each disk was each character's right that. Yeah. That shit was revolutionary. I don't think it's the the world on fire like four did for. Oh my God. Yeah. That was John Rao bending and changing revolutionary very excited about four, but people were extremely into resin evil to was huge event. Totally. But it was like, hey, here's a better resident evil. I don't know that it necessarily resonate for cast a very influential shadow, whereas I think are two was a refinement of Ari one totally already to the modern like a resin evil one resin Eva one like, oh, it's like alone in the dark. They made one of those. Yep. Resonable? Yes. Even rate rate year, right? Whereas resin evil to feels like we're kind of stepped away from that and came into his own a little more. I don't know. It's it's I don't I don't like any of those games. So it's hard for me. Really never played to four is my I actually so friend is wrong is wrong. I think four had more of an impact. In terms of like feel like in terms of influence over the industry and stuff like that. I would actually say, yeah. For for casting much longer shadow than than did too. Was a a huge moment for that. Series series. I think in particular not necessarily for for games in general, I guess like resin evil one would have been the game that set off all of the survival horror. Clones. And all the other stuff that we saw. But are you to probably informed? A lot of those two. I'd be interested in hearing counterargument. I would not. Ben from Cincinnati writes in and says, hey, why won't dice? Just make battlefield twenty one forty three. It is what hardcore fans of the series have been clamoring for for years. Not more World War Two. It gives them freedom to be creative with guns and vehicles. Again, unlike World War Two, so why do they keep refusing to make the game that everyone really wants? I think Ben is wrong. Are people do people actually like it feels like there was a hard push against future war? And that's why everyone went back to World War Two because even modern war was getting long in the tooth. And I seem to remember about a field twenty one forty two not being very well received at the dog. As much as I thought, it looked interesting.
