"It was gonna wind up on insects. Omnia yeah a worker of mine W- surprised me. With a bit of eric roberts trivia and so i i don't remember it verbatim that he he came into where i was working and he was he was asking. How many movies you think. Eric roberts has in post production. He'd probably like three or four. He's i oh no about twenty one post production and then he's signed on for another thirty movies. Holy shit thank. God bless you. Eric roberts this in a recent interview cage said he would never turn down any movies and he's not going to Retire eric roberts puts nick cage to shame right. That's like oh yeah. I'd hold my beer and does you throw a scripted. Eric roberts he does it yeah. That's fine i'll do it. What's in it doesn't matter and is there any. Is there any zombie script you have. That we might want to. Throw eric roberts and see her roberts eric roberts. If you've got time. I will sit there and scripts specifically for you. 'cause i god bless him. Thank god thank god they they. He agreed to these movies. Because this is the world he was born to play like. Absolutely oh my god. He's so good in this movie. And i mean that sincerely but also ironically 'cause it's so ridiculous speeds movies. I think i might like this one more than the second one to these movies. Just keep getting better. I don't know how it's like for the second one had we had that ridiculous fall from the latter. That's how that guide. I was hilarious. And then we had those those pancakes that one pancake shot with all in the in the maple syrup. But this one's got got to eric roberts which this podcast loves when actors played two roles. We've we've seen it twice with john van damme. And now we've got eric roberts playing himself and the imaginary vacation version of himself which i love And the regular air and this one is drunk probably and so and the second one even more so probably than we have the balls for this movie to just outright parody lally is just chef's kiss yes this alive time movie. That must cost like a million dollars. Maybe like five million at most and like you know what we're gonna we're gonna rip off one of the biggest movies the past years. Why fucking not. We're just gonna pay straight up parody. it I was watching bolt scenes like in two separate youtube windows. Because i was just floored by the idea of them deciding to do that. And everyone thinking was a fantastic idea and it looked like they tried hard to do it to you know. There was weeks of choreography to get that scene as good as they got it. It's an it's solid three and a half minutes in the middle of this movie. God bless it and the inset. So i watch these movies twice every time just because i wrote my notes on the second go round. This movie is one of the rare instance better on the second viewing because you know the twist and going through with the second time you're watching with the knowledge of what happens at the so spoilers spoil it here because let's talk about it the whole so dr back. The answer is dr beck star moves on from practicing medicine and now he gets a job at at a college and then like the first day..

"Superheroes are different because the reason why superheroes are different is because different superheroes have to be updated for new generation. A new generation is gonna want their batman story. A new generation is gonna want their superman store new generations because those characters live forever. These moves are a little bit different because they actually go back to some of the characters. Some of the same story arcs and stuff like that day they exist is it's not an update for new generation as much as it is. Let's take this. Ip do something kind different with it. give superheroes actually pass right because the same superheroes went around since nineteen thirty. A if this sucks. I'm not let them keep doing this to me. I was going to be house. Which i will say the the real the real problem with this. Is that like for people not me. I like to the second and third matrix movies but if one does not do what it needs to do. That's three terrible matrix movies that the populace things are terrible and one. Good one right. So what did you think. But what did you think when you saw the trailer thought. The trailer did as everything that it needs to do. So i'll tell you what the trailer needs to do. In my opinion the thing that got me what the first matrix was the trailer i remember. sit down. I was halfway through a pint of ice cream. this is really a true day. My knees were sore. Because i play some basketball. Of course jon reeves doing all kinds of as and said no one can tell you. What the matrix is you have to see it for yourself and the movie itself did look like anything else that came out right like we were. We were a. That was an era. It was denied but we were just catching are breath from the era of like action stars of business. This is john van. Damme this arnold schwarzenegger movie. This is a wesley snipes movie. This is a a steps avesta loan so an action movie had to have this requisite testosterone and this sort of big dumb energy. Even the ones that weren't big dumb still had to kind of feel like they were right and the matrix did seem was completely that to this is. That was like totally different. It was sleek. It was sexy. It was new. It had kiana reasons. His action star even though speed he had been at speeds. Be like what are you do. It's like a big dumb action movie. Bustling with a big on premise. This was completely different. There was an elegance about it that you could see the trailer and it was. It was captivating. And like you you you watched it and you're like damn i got to see what that's about. I want to know what the matrix is..

"Friday august twentieth. Twenty twenty one on today's episode of the show. I'm going to be presenting an interview that i did with the band. Sparks about their first movie musical. Which is called annette. My name is ben pearson. I'm a senior writer slash home dot com and. Yeah like i said. Today is just going to be this conversation that i had with sparks earlier this week about a net which is a really really fascinating movie from director laos character who directed a film called holy motors a few years ago and a net is as i mentioned a musical is the type of movie. That kind of defies easy categorization which i suppose is appropriate considering. It's coming from sparks which is a band. That defies easy categorization. You saw ed. Your rights documentary sparks brothers which came out earlier this year. Then you have at least a baseline understanding of the type of eccentric performers that these guys are in the way that they have really actively pushed back against the idea of being put in any sort of box as artists and storytellers. And now they're out here with a new movie called net which is streaming right now on amazon prime video man. I mean how to even describe this movie in the most basic possible terms. It's a film about a comedian. Who is played by adam driver who falls in love with an opera singer who's played by and cozy yard and the two of them have. Let's call it an unusual child an unusual daughter and that is sort of the movie spirals from there so that is obviously being pretty vague about what exactly goes on but this is a really really strange film and all. Be completely up front with you guys. It's not like my favorite film of the year. But i think there is some really interesting stuff in here especially on the thematic level. That sparks is sort of exploring here. In a way that i'm not fully convinced would work just as well in its original form and we talk about that in this interview. How this movie ended up. How it sort of evolved over the years. So yeah i'm trying to think if there's any more prelude that is necessary here i don't think so so. Let's just go ahead and dive right in. Oh okay one more thing. So the first voice you'll hear is mine asking a question. And then the first person who answers is ron male and his sparks is made up of ron and russell two brothers. So ron answers first and then russell jumps in to join after that. So here is my conversation with sparks. I i so. I initially thought that edgar reitz recent documentary was my introduction to your work but in doing research for this. I realized that i had actually heard some yourself. Well before that. Because you guys do the soundtrack for the john van damme movie knock off in the late nineties crossing. I was wondering if there is anything that you learned on that project that you were able to take with you into the making of a net well to be honest what we learned is that we feel that we have more abilities to do a movie musical that we do to do a soundtrack and maybe it was the circumstances than but you know there's so many people that are capable of doing soundtrack music and working quickly to satisfy a director announced way. And and so we but we feel that working in to a movie musical. We've figured out a way to to incorporate Singing and sung sung kind of speaking within a musical context that we feel is is fairly unique so we preferred to that And you know not to take away anything from that film. He was a great hong kong director. Jerry heart directed that that Film so But we we realized then that that experience not because necessarily the film but just just as the process wasn't something that we really particularly interested in. Gotta i'm curious about the origins of a net. Did you guys write a specific song. I that you then thought oh. This might actually work well in a movie or the idea to write a film come. I have that work. no it was. It was to actually have a complete narrative piece We we had You know we've done a lot of sparks albums Twenty five and you know an in at this point it's really kind of challenging to find new ways to put to frame our music in kind of new challenges at this point in so doing a a long narrative piece was something that we we set out intentionally to do and we had thought a net would be sparks next album Nine years ago when we came up with the idea and then we had all the music and the and the story was there and at that point is when we presented this just by coincidence to to laos karak's the director and he responded so favorably to it in wanted to direct it eventually and so we the Initially thought this would be a alive kind of theatrical presentation by us as the band and we would each doing one of the characters that are in the movie now and and we would bring in an opera singer as well to do the an role from from the movie. Wow that's really fascinating. So so was it the fact that layoffs sort of sparked to the concept. That really get you guys to change your mind on the presentation. The final form of how it all came together. Yeah good we grow civil we. We've always wanted to have a moot of movie musical made. We'd never considered though that this was going to be the one and it also just has such respect for a filmmaker and so when he said that you would be Interested in directing the film all.

"The love lives of lobsters which includes a lot of four play. He'll sort of stroke her with his antenna and his walking legs love stories from the ocean. That's on the ted radio hour from npr. Welcome back joining us. Today is sam sanders the host of npr's it's been a minute. Welcome sam lo. Thanks for having me always a delight. Also joining us is weekend edition. Books editor berry hardiman. Welcome berry and also with us is film critic and culture journalist battery d at chowdhry. Hey hello thank you for having me linda. It is always so wonderful to have you. This is a wonderful panel to me and we are going to talk about some friends for anyone who needs a refresher friends ran from one thousand nine hundred forty. Two thousand four on nbc. It was a phenomenon it was hit. It was a launching pad for its stars that had lasting influence on comedy. There have been plenty of retrospectives though so we went to the most important thing cold hard rankings of human beings now in this case they are fictional human beings and we decided we would ask people who's the best friend who's the worst friend now the only issue we had with this particular things. We were afraid that we knew who would be worst friend and best friend and we'll find out whether we were right. The worst friend ready ready ready already. Worst also decide. We're really quickly for you. Cold hard rankings of human beings that felt so black mirror to me. And i loved it for that for sure. It's going to keep doing this with various groups of people okay. Worst friend is ross geller. That wasn't my vote. I mean just to be clear. I voted in this poll to not knowing i'd beyond absolutely wonderful. Well if people are not familiar with russ. let's hear a little bit of rossignol now. If you want to know why ross did come up as the worst friend. It is because of things like pivot trying to get his friends to help him move a couch now but doctor. You said you did not vote for ross for worst friend you are. I will tell you in minority because with six choices for worst friend. Ross was selected as worst friend by seventy six for look. I do my life decisions coming. I love it. This is hilarious. I see where they're coming from. But i think i don't know like i think ross is being there for people and have been supportive at times. Changes to rachel ever did so. My vote was trying to rachel. Ross is a is a sad sack and you sort of have to figure out how much you mind. Ross being a sad sack who eventually had a bad temper. And yeah i mean i think for me one roses for sure the worst and i separate the friends characters into like kinda mean and like kind of nice and i think the kind of mean characters as probably chandler and ross and for me at least when chandler was mean it was funny. Yeah ross was just mean just to be mean. And i never got him. I never will. He didn't deserve rachel. he wasn't even that cute. Let me stop. He's not funny and the audience was sort of invited to laugh at his sad sack. Nece but i never wanted to. Because i just found him irritating because he had literally no consciousness of himself keep did not know got it. Oh joke that's right. Yeah i agree. Well it's funny. That said that her vote for worst friend was rachel because coming in fifth among favorite friends was indeed. I don't get rachel. I loved her. I never forgive her for stealing john. Van damme from thanks man. s account. Wait i like it. I like it. I mean obviously division of rachel at the beginning was that she was very spoiled and you know had grown up with no problems and you know there was an episode about how she expected her father to pay for everything. But eventually i did come to find jennifer aniston's performance be funnier and drier than it originally was. I brought a favourite rachel clip of mine. Joey spray jennifer aniston. That is the episode where the other friends find out that monica and chandler sleeping together the way she says you have to stop screaming. And particularly the way she intersects with that really. Funny lisa kudrow performances. Maybe i do love that. I do love joe a little bit. She's the homecoming queen of television. You're always in for her. I just. I don't know. I just feel like also when i watch friends. I'm really seen rachel. I'm seeing jennifer aniston. Who i love. I know it yeah. It's charisma is is so intense. Lie whenever she's like friends. Made me a star. I always thought. Oh no honey you made you star because everyone is looking at you when you're onscreen whether friends or the morning show. Yes or what. I just always want to look at her. And it is just charisma. It's pure tv charisma. Yeah i mean. I grew up in india and i was watching friends way later than the rest of the world wars ice like when i was younger i had the rachel haircut and all my friends did to me too girl. She was a fashion icon. You know she was a winner. In that regard Monarchy came in fourth as favourite friends or third as worst friend. My whole thing with monica's character. The character of monica as like i felt like she had some undiagnosed anxiety issues and i felt like she like i needed some talk therapy and good pill because she was so anxious so nervous so wrapped up in your own head. I wanted happiness for her and she just always made me sad. Is that weird. No i get what you're saying. It's just that her anxiety disorder felt so familiar to me. She same except that. My my house isn't as clean. But i know what you're saying like i could see how that would be a sad thing but for me i was like oh i know this lady i feel well. I also think that they really changed the vibe of monica over the course of the series i think at the very beginning her anxiety came out more as sort of mothering. A kind of a hyper competence No desire to design. Everybody ought to care of everyone later. They made it much more about her. Being extremely controlling. I think after she and chandler were married they went sort of down a little bit of a henpecked husband yet ahmedi rabbit hole when the two of them that i threat for both of them. I enjoyed much less than earlier. Iterations of those characters that she was a nag and that he kind of didn't really like her anymore. Sometimes i think they pulled out of that by the end when they were dealing with trying to have a baby and things like that but they definitely i think over the course of the show took monica. That's unfortunately it's pretty common with women characters. They took her from being sort of a a an interesting extremely competent person and stretch that out until it became controlling. and and Annoying now i maybe would have put our number two and number three person in reverse order but.

"For sega genesis. The greatest of all time hot. Take my little kid in his donkey. Kong what is your earliest memory. 'cause you're you're moral combat superfan. What is your earliest memory of more combat. Okay so i would definitely say go into roundtable pizza and rocklin after a little league game. Maybe five or six years old Just seeing this fighting game being interested in going to play it and seeing people's has get punched off. And i remember i'd play it in. That stuff would happen. Like kinda look around like where's mom and dad. How do they know this game is and yeah. Just try to keep them from seeing me. Play it but yeah. I remember that. Just the violence obviously stuck out in scorpions. They'll get over here in throwing the spear at someone and bringing them over to him. it was just. There's nothing like it at that time. In one thousand nine hundred it was kind of a first of its time type of thing like ahead of its time and i was just immediately from the first time i played it. It's very similar to street fighter. I would say very similar. I'd say moral combat definitely dials up violence a little bit more definitely more blood and gore. Yeah absolutely it's actually. I watched a documentary about it. And it's actually kind of what led to them. Starting to rate video games similar to how to do movies. They basically wanted to have parents know the dangers of playing games like this. They slapped an m. for mature on it so the parents would know that. Hey you probably shouldn't be letting your six year old getting play. This game has literally the answer to street fighter. Two which is like one of the most popular arcade games of all time. And midway like herb. We gotta come up with something else. Let's make it. Let's come up with some weird characters. From what i was reading. It wasn't the violence wasn't the immediate goal of the game. It's just kind of came to your things. They wanna do it through the game like they didn't like in street fighter or you'd like get somebody all woozy and they just kind of stand there and you just do whatever you want to fight. They're like we'll do that. Old dude the ends. And that's your your finisher. The right let stuff like that. They regionally wanted characters modeled after Mike john claude van damme yep but he didn't want to do it so they just made one just like him and then john van damme ended up being industry fighter movie. Yes he did fun. Fact just i mean he looks just like From the video game he does. Yeah yeah he's probably after model dream as well. Yeah i remember. I think they wanted to base the first mortal kombat game on jean claude. Van damme like that was who they had in mind and yet he's didn't want to do it so they had to kind of pivot a little bit It are who's the what was your initial reaction to the lions personally. Play the game. Yeah they would have been nineteen ninety two. Wish we're all like five or six five seven. Yeah definitely too young to probably be playing the game but Yeah i thought that it was crazy. I thought it was cool..

Vandamme ben what's your most favorite movie death warrant. Probably death weren't or blood smart. Okay that's worn is not his best movie for some reason. I liked that movie. It's it's the same as all the other movies are all the same movie reason. They were like lionheart as well. Your big dramatic stretch. He was in jc in the early two. Thousands which was kind of a dramatic stretched and that was a lot of fun to watch him. Do is fight is best Acting not really trying to act and a lot of his movies. I was really good. Expendable as far as acting goes more recently. He had an amazon prime show where he played john. Claude van johnson. Whose alias was jean. Claude van damme. He was an international spy. Who made movies as cover for being in the certain towns and cities you had to go to and the whole show was tongue in cheek. It was Ridley scott was the producer of the show. If anybody out there has a chance to jump on amazon checkout jean. Claude van johnson show. I highly recommend it to a lot of fun. You have a least favorite. John van damme. Yeah the quest. I never one blood sport again just to. I haven't seen that one long-time warmed rodman's pretty at to this quite a few bad ones. I the titles out so you. It's a catalog to all of those guys. So what if some of your other guilty pleasures. I got a lot Vanilla ice is a musician is guilty pleasures his first album. I still listen to it. On a regular basis I really like buffy. The vampire slayer on my favorite shows of all time. Smallville is show that i watched even though it got really really bad towards the end i still watched all of it unapologetically. I have a lot of guilty pleasures. I like most stuff like if we do this debate on the threes park. I'm the one person on their legs. Most everything like the only movie that i have not really enjoyed the last five years was independence day to assist only movie that like made me angry native issue off. I don't think i have. I remember seeing the first ones. I'm time ago. Yes oh that it was so bad. It had the lesser hemsworth in it. Who can act and it was really bad really bad. Lost his my favorite show of all time. It's one of my favorite Geeky things i got really into that show. I've listened to all the i cast on it. I theorized my friends. None of it came true at all but still a tried. But now i have a lot of stuff. They keep your mind open now bang. That's what happens. Sometimes people sometimes with this limit themselves to one type of john rowe not be back there and they don't wanna you don't wanna know about anything else. I just watched the the newest turtles movie. The totals out of the shadows. I love that movie that movie. Everybody else hates but for me. I'm watching in scott bebop rock steady. It's like watching the animated series like they took everything is eight animated series and put it in this movie so i don't understand why everybody hates it because i think it's the animated show. I think it's great but yeah that's a good example but guilty pleasure minds new journals movie. 'cause i am. The only person that likes that movie turtles movies have been. Ill is singing on the soundtrack. Yes the second one in the nineties. He did ninja rap. Robbie van winkle right. That's israel that was as being like a house flipper or something bad with reality. Show flip houses now and he's part of icp. I don't like his new music Make that clear that first album. Yeah he makes music with icp and he's still there doing things. I'm just not a huge fan of what he's doing now. I mean how slipping shows seem fine. I watched something where they showed his house and he's done elevator in his house in his kitchen. Twenty four karat gold toilet seat or something like that. Something in the bathrooms. Twenty four karat gold to me. That's ridiculous and the know that it's all off of one song he's got it's scary isn't it. I guess he licenses everywhere so must be where he's making his money. I i could never understand how gold toilet yet. It's kind of like going to the bathroom in the two other. it's too much man. If i ever won the lottery or a huge ticket of money. I would live in the same house or move out. I live in my ex-wife's basement. Were roommates very fun situation. I would probably buy a house close by. But i wouldn't go overboard. Paint everything gold and platnum dime and put an elevator. That's too much the money in a bank. i'm happy skew. The small house for myself. I he set up a podcasting studio and a nice car. You probably once they get that taste of fame. It's all about the show after a while so to do it. I guess like it's an obligation strew. I guess like extravagant singers or actors or whatever that you've known like they did a documentary. They said well. Let's go to the house. They lived in this little quiet house with that was very conservatively decorated. You'd be like wait a minute. Why did why do they act that way. You know they have high karate on their gels when you are not talking about geeky style or talking about matlock. What are some of the podcast that you like going to have quite a bit. I really liked wonder. He's doing with their true crime stuff. They have so many great podcasts. I get hooked on every single one of them. I think yeah. They're the ones who did that. Tiger king podcast before it got popular on net flicks and that was really really good. I think that was actually better than the netflix series. But everybody found the net flicks series..
