The Fast & The February
"Hello and welcome to a. Lights camera upkeep the podcast filmmaking pop culture and the fast and furious welcome to our very special episode fast and the february where we're going to kick our ask the past february because we have to make that distinction I'm so bad for always referring to this whole series as fast and furious but it's the fastened they'll furious until the fourth one fourth. But i think the whole franchise is fast and furious because i feel like the fourth one was like when they tried a rebrand themselves as a franchise. You could so not to jump the gun too much on our reviewing of the first film which we both watched. I watched it today. This is fresh. They didn't know they were building franchise off this ad also knowing what i know about what comes later in the series they didn't know what franchise they were building off this. Yes permit is universal's largest and highest grossing franchise which is funny. 'cause like they keep trying to make other choices stick and they keep failing. It's like no this. Is your franchise live with it. And they're like we want something else. No you get the fast and furious and that's it. It's like that kid that we're fedora to school one day and then when he takes the fidora off comes in a scarf. Everyone's like you are not scarf. Kid you are fidora kid or tom for the rest of your life and you're gonna deal with that now labeled yourself so yes this is as you were saying in the beginning of a five month long project five months. We can't do all the films in that time that that's true but we are doing. What about hubs in shaw. It's a spinoff spin on this. Actually think we talked about. It's been awful lot but unrelated. Yes we are starting with the fast in the february the into due to march too fast which got march two furious. That's that's correct that we named these. We didn't india original movies where we're very confused. We're going by what we think. Sounds good but i will save the the second title. The second movie is phenomenal like that was marketing genius. It's also the only of the films that i've seen before we start this you. You've seen the second one that's interesting yeah. People told me that. Because i saw the second one. I was kind of really ruining my expectations for the series. But no i think. I was telling them exactly where they needed to be Then we have the fast and furious april drift where we will evaluate the third movie. Where they they really changed the naming like the you know that there was a group of people in a room that were like. How do we get three into this. Had we get the fast and furious but with three and they couldn't they couldn't figure it out. I bet you there was one where like one of the letters was switched with a three and they were like this will work and then for some reason. Someone is like tokyo drift. That is what we will go with and then we will finish off the watching movies with fast in may which is the worst idol of both of the movies and of our regards. Because they like. What do we do for the fourth movie. They're like okay. Do we stick with the whole colon structure and they were like now. Let's go back with reboot. And here's the thing. I know that they've gone through. Several directors throughout like their eras like. There's the rob cohen era or different people need. But i don't think that was like a reboot. 'cause that feels like a reboot like they're like okay. Now we're gonna be going with. The new director would go back to fast and furious. But now i. I'm going to imagine that it's more like the mission impossible series. Where there's never a reboot but you get drastically. Different directors like mission. Impossible to is a john. Woo film through and through and it does not fit with the rest And then in june which is the twentieth anniversary of the first fast and furious. We'll be doing a tropical cream of fast and furious. We're gonna evaluate all movies. We're gonna talk about them evaluate their tropes that they do. Boil down our thoughts in than really determine whether in the future there will be more willing to strap myself down for the final films just just for the tropical before that month. Watch all of the rest. Watch watch all of the rest yeah. Yeah we'll see. We'll see that that could be one of the discussions. We up watching all eight. I did not or maybe we both fall in love. Maybe by the time we're done watching the fourth movie we are. What is the term profess furious fan. I i thought that. I think it's the family. But that's taken is probably like i don't know two thousand kids were born in eighties.
BadPower Vulnerability In Fast Chargers Might Make Phones Halt And Catch Fire
"Right. Let's talk a little bit more about that. Multi phone thing I would keep talking about. All right, let's security researchers at ten cents Genre lab publish published a vulnerability in the firmware for fast charges that could lead to melting components or fires or other damage, fast chargers detect how much voltage device can handle and deliver the maximum safe amount bad power as they call the exploit tricks. The firmware into delivering more volts than is safe, an attacker would need. Need physical access to the charger for a few seconds or infect a smartphone or laptop, then infects the Charger Sean Wu's team tested thirty-five chargers and found eighteen of them were indeed vulnerable John Woo. contacted all affected vendors, however, eighteen of thirty, four fast charging chips analyzed couldn't be flashed with new firmware. Yeah, this is this is only for messing with people. Could turn into a vulnerability that that gets data somehow I suppose, but for the moment it's just a way to break phones Amanda Suppose, there might be some spy tactic where you want to stop someone from from contacting someone so you hack charged to melt their phone or something. But but there are also people who like to cause grief and that's. You know probably were this would would come about Tricia D. do you think this is something you're worried about? I'm not personally worried about it, but I totally see like. If we're going to put the tin foil hat on for just a second, I can totally see a major corporation sending people out to try to exploited all the chargers of a competitor, so they can be like us. The note seven all over again to bed. Your phone stink at Arthur awesome, but it was really like the secret conspiracy. Just hack all of their charters. Some cut corporate espionage. That makes total sense. What else would it be used for besides just trying to be a jerk, and the fact that that this like or like injuring someone legitimately injuring? Yeah, because it could cause a fire so you could you know? You might plan to cause a fire and maybe burn down somebody's house with us and there's a bad stuff you could do. I was not too worried about it when it said it could only. have access to the charter that that's easier to keep control. Other people leave bags out and stuff so normal rules apply there, but when I when they said it could be. Done through a militias. Phone Then it became something that I think more people have to guard against again. Best practices a don't download things on your phone from sources. You're not absolutely sure of apply just like any other kind of Malware I. Don't think you would see people doing this too often. And hopefully the folks who make these chargers will mitigate them, but it is disconcerting that some of the chips can't even be patched. So, if you have a fast charger, you might want to look up that vendor list and maybe replace your charger. And Update firmware church, or in some cases as well.

Is Huawei's Worst Google Nightmare Coming True?
"Love these tech stories where it seems to be almost like a soap opera or reality show so well. Let's go back to the reality show of alway the P thirty and P thirty phones that they released recently and the ongoing trade a dispute that forced google to sever their relationships with Wa wa Wa way was stuck in a certain watercraft without a certain implement because what good is an android phone that has no access to the Google play store glee services only Jammie. I think Jami doesn't have Google play services and that one is the only one that's but anyway but there's a reason why you don't see a lot of phones on on the subway yeah you don't see any of the US exactly okay so that the trade ban came into effect in May and the EP thirty in the P thirty pro where the first way phones to be released after that ban and we're all prepared to feel real sorry for Weiwei until Oh gee. There's there's this Chinese APP called L. Z. Play that Gosh almost immediately after the release of these two phones that allows the installation of official official Google apps including the all important Google playstore like wow. I don't know who created this miraculous. L Z play APP but they must have some mad add skill as those of us who were cognizant in the late eighties to early nineties might have put it well more power to you. How wonderful well? Well okay. There's there's an update on that security researcher. John Woo wrote a medium boasts about his investigation into the APP because as a security expert it occurred to him that Gosh these are kind of like important low level APPS. I wonder how they met this APP minister work. He himself wrote the T. L. Semi Colon are are on this. I'm quoting him here the current widespread method to install google services on newly released while devices relies on undocumented Weiwei specific acidic. MD M. A. P. is although this quote back door. Unquote requires user interaction to be enabled the installer APP which is signed with a special certificate from Wa Wa is granted privileges nowhere to be found on standard android systems so what this cuts down to is that why phones have special android permissions that include the ability to install super super level system level APPS two of those permissions missions that they've created are completely and totally undocumented anywhere which is definitely on the superlatives side of sketchy sketchy so demonstrating that if you want to get things done one of the most wonderful ways to do it is to simply create a medium post was to how many of our stories over the past couple years that were really really important interesting started with so and so wrote a medium post with their experiences and or investigations so the follow up was pretty quick well first of all whatever website that was hosting the L Z play APP was taken offline alway revoked the certificates that allow it to work to sort of cover tracks but I guess it didn't appease anybody because if you're not familiar with safety fifty nine this is Google's own tool and own process that will certify that a phone that runs android is safe and secure and hasn't been tampered with meaning that you can trust trust to run APPS on it and know that they're probably they're excuse me according to safety net at the test it has nothing weird about it that might result in like your credit card information being stolen or the hardens a secure area of the hardware being accessed by something that's not secure and well you know now how the Pe- thirty and the P thirty pro are now fail the safety net test so Google's tool no longer will certify to apps that run on the phone with this is a trustworthy APP with the immediate fallout that Google pay no longer works and any other APP that asks asks the Android android system. Hey has this phone. Can you tell me that this phone has not been tampered with and can trust it with this thing that I'm telling the user should be really really secure now. ANDROID android itself will say no. You really shouldn't do you. Should you should trust a hamburger that you found on the sidewalk on package more than you should trust this this phone right now share assessment I do. I do have to know so last night are all about android we had Michelle Rahman from exceed developers on and they had written about this back door and it's actually like quite it's quite involved to try and get it down. Ah installed on a walkway device but it's just like an interesting. I don't know to me it. Just it like you said earlier. It feels like it's just political theater at this point that and it's also it's also just indicative the time where we are living in this very league binary operating system mobile operating system world where you just have either ore and I can understand and why people would be freaking out over way not having access to the Google play store and Google apps but it just this doesn't feel like the way to do it folks you know and the thing is those alway phones have that back door right because there's those phones are sold in markets where Google is is company Non Gratis. I'm thinking Russia and China and Russia has its own like APP store sort of situation I think it's yen decks and China has its own and so I think that's why they were able to kind of make this happen but the way it all sounds is so sketchy and shady and I and I actually feel I mean you never should feel completely bad for like a giant corporation because again they'll oh yeah they don't corporations are not people people. All people are but we know the Supreme Court sometimes but I also kind of feel bad because this narrative has been in the press since Twani any way before twenty twelve when there was that actual security issue found with wall way not smartphones. I think it was like wow way. Conferencing devices were like a part of this and so it's it's kind of a thing and it just it yeah it just kind China it sucks or Wa but also don't don't use a backdoor to install things 'cause that's super unsafe no matter how badly when it use a phone in a certain country Oh my God just just don't do that. That's that's why side loading one of the things that I most appreciate about android the fact that you can go deep into settings and flip a switch to side low dance from that aren't necessarily that aren't signed by the Google play store because I feel as though if you've spent either two hundred dollars or twelve hundred dollars on the phone you own the phone and you can do whatever you want with it. Yeah however that's Oh that is just like that's like hanging out a welcome mat for every bad thing that can happen as a result of open owning phone but if you're going to be that if you're going to be that bold shall we say absolutely it is it does we should say it does look as though this was th there's nothing super suspicious about this Weiwei's intentions while this is something that wow a deaf back back door that while away from evidence clearly put in themselves to facilitate the installation of Google services however it does appear as though that was their sole intent content with us that it wasn't a back door that could then be exploited by other governments or whatever not that it couldn't be but that was it and it is still kind of one of the reasons why why we became so open to scrutiny and speculation is that we don't know for sure who owns it and it's supposedly owned by this one person however who owns the majority of the stock however once you start going one or two layers deep deep you see get to the point where okay we don't know who owns while way so a given yeah so I do. I do think that the trade wars that are going on are not good at all. I don't think that they're rationally founded. I do believe that industrial espionage is a real a threat. I also believe that if a government owned telecommunications hardware company wanted to take advantage of the fact that the world was basing a five there five did you network on hardware built by a company based in their country that they would coerce or ask the this company say Yeah we want you you just put this little component inside all of your five G. Hardware and it looks like a resistor but it's not a resistor that is definitely something to be. What for? I don't believe that the the the machinations that are pursuing this trade war are towards the our wealth out or designed to do the effect is best for people at just goes to show. We're plugging you know the podcast to we were talking about this on macrey yesterday. That's just so much uncertainty about the future than there are a lot of companies apple included Google included that they're part of their solution to a lot of these problems. Does let's wait to see if there's a new president next year because Republican or Democratic everything could change and a lot of horrific problems looms for tech businesses could go away if there is a different president in that

"All of the things we have to overcome, and then either you explain how your. Going to do it and it goes wrong or you don't explain how you're going to do it. And it goes right with minor variance or major difficulties, but that do get overcome and the mission impossible movies like as a whole, that's the structure is you start with that exposition and it's laying out, here's the information you need. Here's what you're supposed to do. And then you know it's going to go wrong and come apart from there. So you end up with these movies that are kind of like Russian nesting dolls, like, here's the outside heist. And then there's an inner heist in inter heist in an air highest. And I find that fun, but I do tend to lose track. And I think part of the reason we lose track of the plots is because they're just not really that important. You know, there's going to be double crosses and there's going to be revealed, and that person isn't actually that person and the person that you thought you were going after you're actually going after somebody else, like given the degree to which these movies are based on everything you know is wrong. It really doesn't bear any any effort to hang onto the information that you're given because it doesn't mean anything. They want you to in this one. Now, I think in the first film that they really do want to have a, you'd be invested in the twists and turns. And I think people are put off by the work that the need to put in and perhaps maybe the film didn't quite meet them halfway, you know, I, my head was swimming in different points in much in this again. Then I think that's maybe why it got dialed back for the subsequent entries, maybe not in. I don't remember much about to a motorcycle right to that. Yeah. The motorcycle I think makes that's one that opens with the dangling on the rock face. Right? I remember I mostly member being disappointed, huge John woo fan, and this was not was like John woo films. You seem disappointing time. I look. Great. But going back to ideas here, they were still like kind of playing the twist or the double cross a little closer to the vest leg. I think that's that's accurate because like I, I seen this first one enough that like I, I know from the outset like, yeah, Jon Voight stat, you know, and like you can see that when you're expecting it, but I don't think you would necessarily see that if you weren't expecting it in the new movie. Like I don't think there's even any effort made to hide the double cross. Like, you know, it's coming like less than a third into the movie and exactly what it is. I won't. I won't get into it in this half, but I think it kind of speaks to how the series has evolved where that idea of a double cross or whatever is just expected. You know that the it doesn't move the the writer to even try to disguise it. Rather you just kind of like work. It's worked into the fabric of the film. I feel like I knew I always knew it was Jon Voight I because it's Jon Voight and second because I've just read too many, Sidney Sheldon novels. And Sidney Sheldon was very influential both as a TV person and as a novel person, and there's a certain kind of story where if it is introduced with like, here are a bunch of young up and comers and the father figure that they all trust who is kind of the core, the Lynch pin, the key that keeps them all together and manages that like one hundred twelve percent chance that that person's going to betray everybody internet to be the bad guy. It's an effective twist. Good, and he really feeling that they that these people are emotionally invested in him, and if they live long enough, they realize that he's completely cold. That said, so much of this movie is about like, this is a phrase I use a lot because I see it a lot movies like this. But there's like this performance of suffering aspect to Tom Cruise dealing with his team members being dead, and it's it's hard for me to accept it because I don't feel like the film does anything to earn it. Like we have no idea who these people are, and I think that the.

"There's a line where he says he likes, stops him, and he says, remember, it's going to be zero body count. And I was just laughing about how that like went completely out the window by mission impossible to right, and it's just nonstop killing people for the last five movement. Oh, where where it was like a sin to kill someone on a mission. Apparently he's, he grabs the dude by the blade. Yeah, it's. Oh, jeez. What's that guy's name from the professional. Oh, John Reno, or. Yes. So he kinda ends up being on the bad side and. No bodies. No, I do remember that. Do remember that he started waxing people in mission, impossible to, yeah, by starting with two, you shooting everyone. That one was John woo, right? It was action feel yet, right? The first one was kind of, I don't know, like a straight of spy movie spy movie by tech like straight ups like spy and like not specifically action, but like right spies by in fact, some of the action sequences in that were of the worst because I know, okay, one of the cool ones is cool, but it's probably the his Tom Cruise is weakest stunt emission impossible one where the resent fish tank giant fish tank explode. Right, right. Yeah. Yeah. He throws the bubble gum, the black and green or the black and red bubblegum on the fish tank. Yeah. And first of all, what the fuck new. Did he just kill all those fish. I'm gonna count started in on. He did start off in life. Right? So but from there, like what's the next big sequence? He's on the back of speed train, right. Yeah, a fast moving train. Okay, that's very Indiana, Joan of any. I mean, they even did that and solo right? Repeated the whole train top. Yeah, it's true. But this one was crazy 'cause it was on the top. And I want to say that was obviously was on a real train right? That was like a wind tunnel situation. I don't know about the train. I have a matching not, but the helicopter fake and sell.

"Yeah formative in my development as a sinophile and a lot of really like broken arrow just liberal roca narrow face off all the great john the craig base screen laugh at this base off his good but but you know his his classics are the killer and hardboiled which to this day in my opinion still remains one of the best action films of all time by the way he is remaking the killer with lupita and young and i'm so i'm so therefore it it's going to be it's going to be amazing so so a lot of the reason why action movies look the way they do today i would attribute to john i mean he he developed many of the conventions like excessive use of slow motion you know crazy steady cam you know dolly shots dual pistols or people pointing pistols at each other at the same time in having big dramatic speeches and confrontation the matrix which you know which is what really affect everything else but that's that's the direct connection there yeah and go ahead i was gonna say i was gonna say the exact same things john woo by way of matrix matrix is right and and so he has all these hallmarks another hallmark is doves which appear in random places in every single john movie here here the first place you see dubs appear in the movie manhunt directed by john woo is when the main character's crash into a series of dove cages yeah at least there's a setup and now doves are everywhere my question is that is he he's become a parody of himself in any ways yes i would i think this movie he is aware that in really having like one point the character say i'm really waiting for a better tomorrow knows what he's doing because he's referencing his own movies and they're several scenes of that so.

"Really bad kind of comes off the body but that like you just can't fake it and that's really what makes like great action stars great action movies greats is seeing them move and fight and then having a stunt guy who wouldn't be worried about hurting you a little bit that's what i need and it's just so go for it and and what's crazy is is you just don't expect it like it's just it's there and you're like oh it's going to be a gun out like they're going to get them into chokehold stabs mun the throat panicked so exactly the opposite and then he runs into the guy thinks the bin cking good kill his brutal brutal it's like very impressive they'll have movies that like it doesn't have to like that kind of a darcom it goes there's a great scene in the movie the heat that movie with sandra bullock and what's her name mccarthy yet that's like a necessarily gory where she tries to give tracheotomy cafe and it's so funny like to me like playing gore for laughs is like very daring and fun well and that's okay i was about to say i love the fact that they hold it kind of until this moment because it's the moment when everyone realizes he's a hit man and they did it in such a physical way and also i think we're talking about like point of view in your action choreography and not just being like and then they kind of fight like problem with show buffy like are like show buffy but it was just like this boring tv fighting that was kinda stupid and didn't tell anything about the characters this movie the fact that like the first real violence you see is that crazy altamont shootout which is super john woo and crazy and funny and far.

"Guns hong kong john woo right janda bont is trying to make his own mosh to all of those boiled the killer john woo hong kong adventures he's inspired by these locations and he's trying to do that kind of action and not necessarily the action of the video game which they were so meticulously creating in the first film i think the two fisted guns is very much in spirit of the game because that's her big thing is having the two pistols but yeah a lot of this isn't feeling it tomb raider does not really go to the city's raider is all about going to remote locations and tomb so this is feeling far more james bond than it is indiana jones or tomb raider the game yeah and laura croft never goes to the mall we can all agree right when she'd follows that tracker to a hong kong shopping mall this is a strange choice indeed yes why why why why are you doing supersecret disease stuff in a mall yeah you seem gremlins to the new batch yeah that was called the parody that was intentionally farcical and this i mean i think there's an element of that but this is not roger moore this is not a serious action movie this is not jason born the tone is not such that i feel like it's either funny or to be taken seriously so the idea that we ultimately have this genetics lab in a shutdown hot topic and come in guns blazing and do a million john woo references with broken glass just feels that yang demont is trying to do other people's movies and not giving this ago as video game movie and i think the screenwriters are to blame there too i mean he didn't write the entire script and somebody decided to take them to a mall and take them to a city i'm sure he was involved in the scouting but it was written to be this way and it just doesn't feel natural it doesn't feel right.
