"Johnny smith or julio jones julio okay they're talking about offensively yes the all the only thing that we can them offensively as an offensive coordinator. I'll how are they not better offensively because they lost what's his name as well on inside the tight ends up the tight end tight end tight ends. He's actually i thought title. I title then. Johnny smith johnny smith good player but damn the titans are pretty good. So we'll okay. We shifted to tidy ends better. Well they just cut wearing wearing. Who's another another third round. Pick flop for the texans still fail brown. I thought i read that wearing astros released though he wasn't gonna make the team so it doesn't matter so of so. Yeah so you want to go somewhere else to try and catch on. I'm sure i well the tied in production. I don't it may go up. You wanna know why. I think it'll be about the same. They're not gonna have a single guys good on yards guys that can catch the ball up. Why because tyrod is going to spend more time probably was working on. We all lean on a crutch and i would imagine tight ends crutches easier big bodies and the tight end position has become such a big part of the nfl. But i don't know overall on paper without will fuller when fuller saudi right now and their team speed. They've got some of it but we got to see him all in action. So as we sit today i don't think they're better offensively at the wide receiver position but they could be with nickel. Collins had about seven hundred yards from their tight ends last year. Seven eight hundred yards and it may not be yards. Maybe catches his head. One like four touchdown right. we can take. That's wrong my bed. The red zone touchdown catches go up for a lot of positions and the tiding usually makes touch. I would like more. Yeah from the position so it's just going to be a struggle and you got red zone. Twelve points against the colts won't be enough against tennessee. Was like four field goals as anybody right. So you've got to got to come oil touchdowns. We'll hear from tyrod taylor and david kelly about the vaccination and third down offense and offensive identity. All those things will get the opportunity here from tyrod. David cullen next here on sports. Talk seven hundred. Buckle up the sean salisbury. Show continues to be.

"A way that would not come back for generations of post hays code. I think it's also important to note Since i'm film nerd that the hays code which is a way to censor film so that they were a little less fun to watch a little more conservative in. Their values was a voluntary a measure instituted by the film studios. This was not a law that was passed in congress to censor films. It was sort of a joint effort to come up with a way to To make more quote unquote family friendly movies to avoid legislation that would have maybe more strictly censored films. And but the result is that is that in the decades after the hays code of movies you could see that there was a big. There's a big difference in the kind of stories that you could see especially as far as marriages and outside of marriage relationships A whole world of cinema was sort of closed off in the post hays code world. It would take generations to kind of get back on track and emerald totally. Was this movie that was pre haze that you were able to feature l. I did remote control. And i did. Are you listening. Which both star william haynes. I'm glad that you mentioned next issue here. And we'd love to hear a little bit more about that movie and why it's pre code or you know what were the pre code elements but asked wanna talk about some of the supernatural elements. Ooh yeah so with the next issue here that one was from eighteen fifty so it was during the hays code it would be very wholesome very all american which i really love about it because even like the cast of characters in the film.

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?

Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?

"The biggest question of all and of course, I'm talking about Cam Newton Cam Newton ready to be the quarterback for this team or false pause, as of today. It's false and I wrote a column this weekend for Boston Sports Journal, that basically laid out and I'm talking to different people both around the team and also around the league about where Cam is and there's three things that need to go on Nick and it needs to go on now and it needs to go on every day off of the day until the season kicks off and number one. It's cam has to lose weight. He can't he can't play a 250 anymore. He's not a young buck. We saw dead. You know, I thought this but it was confirmed by a couple of NFL people that I I talked to and I trust they said that cams legs got heavier as the season went on and off and run as much he wasn't as a as Elusive and the big thing is not only that but your legs are everything when you throw the ball, if you don't have your legs which you did earlier in the season, they threw the ball a little bit better. If you don't have your legs then you have nothing as far as power and things like that and also just accuracy if you don't have your legs then you have to compensate upper body and things just get all out of whack and that's what happened. When cam last year. So in cam I will give him credit on the I am athlete podcast. He did say, I think he was trying to lose ten pounds. I'd go less. I think he needs to get to 3235. I think that gives them a better chance to be sustainable. He doesn't he doesn't need to be 2:50 to run over linebackers anymore. There aren't that many linebackers that are 2:50 a.m. Should be in a business and his age are going to be 32 a plow on those guys over. So there's that there is he has to get into he he has a he has to get with her own coach. I hope he's working with one but he better be working on one that works on his mechanics all the time every day. Get back to where he was at the beginning of last season get it out of her system because he needs to learn how to just be able to flick the ball. Ten yards instead of making a whole body convulsion just to get the ball out in the last thing is the biggest thing Nick and we've talked about it. I thought is he needs he needs Express 24-hour premium tutoring on the Patriots Playbook and what goes on as far as all right. If the defense does this then I can change to this and what's my audible what's my check because I know everybody's all excited about Johnny Smith and Hunter Henry and you know, we you can also factor in The athletic fullbacks that they've wanted to have for two years. Dan Vitality is coming back supposedly and also they dropped adult and Keen to play that position because there's a choice that they want to be more like the 49ers with use checked. And so it's all nice and dandy that they have two tight ends and athletic fullback and people are absolutely right to say that benefit of that is you get match up issues where all right, if it's safety then we're just going to run over them if their linebackers then we're just going to run past them. We're going to throw the ball. That is great and all but it doesn't mean Jack if you don't have a quarterback who can't see the defense see what's going on check to the right play and take advantage of the defense and last year cam wasn't even close to that. So unless all those things happen and he's not there at this point. He is not ready to be the starting quarterback for the for the Patriots. Do I think he can get there and be better? Yeah, but we'll have to see.

Top 10 players signed by Patriots

"Talk about the Patriots. The the Patriots grabbed everybody's attention by making move after move after move after move. Like we're watching it over agency going off. How many people are going to bring in its kind of unbelievable how many starters they've added? And so I count they added ten players that I think are very very significant to their team next year. In fact, I would say pretty clearly the Patriots are back and a lot of people saw this coming, you know, but they are going to be a force in the NFL next year here is my list my nerdy list of the ten players the top players. They added that are very significant to their roster next year. The first two are massive. It will reshape the entire Patriots offense. They added two tight ends Johnny Smith and Ed Hunter Henry. To Johnny Smith signed from Tennessee. He signed a four year deal worth up to fifty million dollars. That's Thirty one point two five million dollars guaranteed and he's only twenty-four years old. So that's Monday. That's a really gigantic Marquis franchise player. He cited the reason why it came to New England is cuz he loves Bill Belichick. He's got great respect for him. And I want to point out of all the everybody I'm about to talk about these shows to be in New England Bill Belichick got his kind of guys who sought out New England wanted to be there and wanted to work hard and win a Superbowl. I think it matters. It's very very exciting. These are not with Josh Gordon's or what's the other example Phillip Dorsett who they made a move for and they're not really like that. You think they fit they don't work out know. These are guys who all chose to be in New England who wanted to win a Superbowl. I really want to win a Superbowl. These guys went out of their way to be New England now the other tight and they brought in With twenty-six-year-old tight end Hunter Henry from the LA Chargers got a three-year deal twenty-five million dollars guaranteed. It's worth up to thirty seven point five million dollars total if he meets all those incentives. They also added two wide receivers the Patriots brought in Nelson agholor to a you got a two year twenty six million dollar contract East twelve years old. Now a lot of people do not like this move and I I get it Nelson agholor is not the most flashy player in the NFL but I think if it's very well with Cam Newton, he's good at he's not going up and getting the ball. He's got good hands did some stuff of the Raiders that I think deserves your attention go watch what he did with the Raiders and I just I'm like, huh a lot of good plays. Okay. I understand. I see the potential Bill Belichick and the Patriots would see and Nelson agholor go will give the guy a good contract, especially considering the Patriots have like our desolate at wide receiver. They need help. They got home. Who is awesome but he can't do everything by himself from the slot. They have n'keal Harry who n'keal Harry. I I think he's going to pop. I think he's going to progress and keep getting better. But she's not a number one right now. So on top of the page where it's also added Kendrick Bourne guy from my local area actually went to Eastern Washington University 25 years old. He's coming from the San Francisco 49ers. He got a three year deal worth twenty two point five million dollars. Now another thing the Patriots did they also added they signed Center Ted carriages and they traded for tackle Trent Brown. So this is the new Patriots offense right now. They've receivers Nelson agholor, Julian Edelman Kendrick born and kill hair is its own nuclear Aguilera. I'm doing my best. It's a hard game to say. They also have Sony Michelle running backs for any receivers Sony Michelle at running back and improved offensive line. Cam Newton at quarterback who I get why people doubt Cam? He's a former NFL MVP and with when you put cams Talent with a lot of weapons including two outstanding tight ends Hunter Henry Smith, right man. I'll tell you what I look at the Patriots offense and think two things immediately number one. Everything is going to run through their brand new Titans. Their entire offense now is probably going to drive down the seams of the field right up the middle. They're going to use our tents heavily lot of play-action again. I am scheme wise things will look a lot like the page words did back in the day when they had drunk and Aaron Hernandez together to start tight ends. Now number two. I feel very very confident with Cam Newton as the Patriots quarterback and it surprised me but I want to remind you that two years ago. Tom Brady was the page word starting quarterback and did basically nothing and the reason was there were no weapons there. He kept running into the same brick wall. His receivers weren't good enough. So, how can I think you and I would both agree. I like Cam Newton Tom Brady's a better quarterback than Cam Newton. So my point is if Tom Brady couldn't make it work with New England's roster. How was Cam Newton supposed to succeed? He was set up to fail will now Cam Newton's being given weapons is being set up to do. Well, I'm excited man. He's a former NFL MVP, he's hungry. I I personally believe Cam Newton's going to have an awesome year and it really is going to make extended one-year deal with like it was like three and a half million dollars with a bunch of incentives. I honestly think we're gonna look back at his contract at the end of next year and go. Can you believe the deal they got on Camden he played so well for no money. I really think he's he's a guy who can didn't play well enough wage. Last year to earn a new gigantic contract. So he's going to have to show what he can do this year and maybe earn more money next year but I think cam is poised to do very very well and make a lot of money and win a lot of games in New England

Free Agency 2021: Biggest Winners and Losers From Day One

"Who's the biggest winner from day. One the biggest winner from day one already told you it was. It was a my intro. You're listening great question. Jonnu smith out. It's cam newton. Well that depends kenyans a starter for sixteen games. That's right that's true. It's yeah okay. Potentially find jonah smith. Donald smith big contract with the patriots They invest heavily in him. You like this for him i do. I think you know Obviously the quarterback is the concern. But this is the scenario especially with the move that they made that we look for in fantasy as tight end could be the leader of the pack in terms of targets and opportunities and so look cam was not good in twenty twenty. If cam does start sixteen games in two thousand twenty. One greg olsen. During a five year stretch was pretty awesome of the top tier tight ends of the guys that we did. We talk about what he was in the next group you know. And so from twenty two thousand twenty sixteen. Greg olsen averaged a hundred eighteen targets a season seventy seven catches Decide one thousand yards and five times. Johnny could do that. One season estimate put them right around a top five tight end. Greg olsen was great and not only was he great but we also saw from cam newton in that stretch that he could give you greg olsen. Who could finish as a top eight tight in five straight seasons and give you a number to wide receiver in four of those five seasons three or four of those five seasons whether it was. Steve smith or kelvin. Benjamin and even ted ginn one year. So that's interesting. I'll afforded talking about that on the show tomorrow on the tuesday morning show and then of course we'll have a whole bunch of more news items to react to. Hopefully we'll get some kenny golladay news at some point on tuesday or maybe it'll happen later on monday night as record this at about nine fifteen eastern. Who's the biggest loser from day. One the biggest loser from day one on asking these questions before. I told you that we were starting with these egypt's before the show The biggest guys they ryan tannehill johnny smith and Us down smith and corey davis They're going to have to struggle to replace those guys Davis probably more. So the jonah just from the standpoint of what he was last year with his production number two receiver sixty five catches nine hundred plus yards and five touchdowns. So we'll see what they do in in in that in that regard but i think Tannehill you know. I had him as the number eleven quarterback. I dropped in the thirteen after today. Just because i think it was close between in my mind. Joe burrow and tom brady put them behind both those guys. Okay how 'bout jameis winston ryan tannehill right now. It's soom jameis winston as the starter. I still go. i think it'd be messy. You know. I can't situation we're taking those not blaming So i was hoping james would go someplace else and tastes hill. Would still be the guy with maybe a rookie or somebody. Young that they could groom continued. Just gonna to get you know too much of the mill package of james as the starter and if as milton starter. Davis is gonna play very much so it just feels like it be messy situation oil. Who do you like better. Corey davis with the jets nelson agholor with the patriots. I think adler is going to be bad. I don't trust the situation. You know i mean he. He had so many big. Plays for the raiders last year and he was so good for derek carr but he did that on eighty two targets. I don't think he gets eighty two targets with the patriots. He's going to do the same thing. So with what cam does running the ball with what jonah smith brings to the table with. What the rest of the receiving corps will look like if julian edelman on the team if he's healthy Nagla is going to be A guy that's not on many fantasy rosters middle of the season whereas corey davis could be the best receiver for the jets. I don't know if that's going to be the case. But i would take davis by far over niagara.

Pianos pianist a vocalist and sheep. Sense that the one that the sears catalog was probably not going to be a great instrument and she had heard that the world renowned guitarist johnny smith had just moved into colorado springs with his new wife. He had been down. Beat's top jazz guitar player. Two years in a row. I think it was fifty seven or fifty eight. My mom set up a meeting with johnny smith and she took eight and a half year old me in there and i don't even remember that and johnny evidently told my mom while he's a little younger than i usually take but there's something there and yeah i will take him on one of his first students in colorado springs. He also said we'll get him a really good instrument and my mom bought a gibson. Es 175 student model so have been playing gibson's from the start. And i didn't have to ever have sears. Airline guitar played. Did you ever get a red one. I never did other than the birth of my two kids. Starting lessons with johnny smith was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. He was just fantastic. And by the time. I was oh ten or eleven. I was playing bach. Fuchs and duke ellington and he was writing me out improvised solos like he would play with his trio or something. It was the greatest of great experiences. The thing that i learned most from johnny smith in my five years of lessons from him was that taste is not what you play. But it's what you don't play. And he could play faster than probably any guitar player on the planet and he hardly ever did play fast. And when you'd see him play or listen to his many records on verve. There were times when he would play a musical passage. And then just let it hang out there and have a big space talk and then play again. I learned from watching him. That a lotta the times. Some of the best things you can do is not to play. Play a musical passage and wait and then play another musical passage. Playing solos on guitar was like having conversation with somebody. In many years later. I'd hear guitar players. Who play solos and they just go boom little.

I cried when i was like two years old and said mommy. That's so sad. A lot of musicians have it in their soul and they just have to figure out what instrument they wanna play and how they pursue that. But i was always musical and started in kansas taking piano lessons and playing doodoo and it was really boring. It didn't take. But when i got to colorado suddenly rock and roll was taken off. And i saw that sears airline guitar for fifty nine dollars i thought man it may be was about pleasing mom and continuing her legacy because she never really got to do what she wanted to. She wanted to be an accordion player or a piano player or vocalist in a big band and she never really got to do that.

Rested Bills melt down with mistakes in 42-16 loss to Titans

"Did you see this common? Did you see the titans rolling up a forty? Burger. On the bills who look they look like the team that had a cove nineteen nightmare with layoffs and close facilities and long stretches without play not the titans. I. Didn't see it coming. I mean I think that if you're someone that just observers football. How much do we know whether or not practice time? Is. A key indicator of success I? Mean I'm saying you never practiced but I think the bills having to split attention I'm talking like deep staff members, players studying tape between the titans and chiefs might have been a bigger factor. But when the game started tonight I mean this game to me is about mistakes by Josh Allen that we haven't really seen up to this point. They came home to roost tonight. The first interception was not on him. That was a deflected ball the second one though was and Ryan Tannehill? Kind of another notch in the belt of Sane for all of us on I'm included in that the question whether the off season and into this season would have been a path that showed us that Ryan Tannehill. Last year was an aberration from the rest of his career. He's not going to reach those typical heights, but he really fits in this offense. He is a tough minded quarterback and we see it with this runs. Tonight we see with him blasting for a first down that it didn't seal the game further sealed the game late late on his pinpoint passes play action attack under Arthur Smith you probably. Generated About Fifteen head coaching interviews during this game because it was on national TV because for some reason, Arthur Smith is still a little under the radar and I think it's about. The Smith the Arthur Smith. I mean you'll see that the future of offense I know it feels like. Like a paint company I get that it's not it's not something that sticks out but the bills defense. Week I. Think we came into the year thinking the titans defense might be the part of that team that kind of lax identity. Well, tonight, they really they put forward a great performance and caused havoc for the bills were the bills defense up the Middle Johnny Smith other guys just being victimized. I'd be real concerned about Buffalo's defense because teams are going to look at this and say, we're going to attack them this way.

"Rush more all right now. It's time for a Mount Rushmore Chop performances. In spite of the fact Tatum O'Neal won an Academy Award for Paper Moon and she was just nine years of age. We take a look at this list. I mean there's lots of great performances over the years I have to think of the one that jumps out right away which is Haley Joel. Osmond in the six cents. That's right I see dead people or as I would see over highlights of Michael read the former buck icy red people regardless Haley. Joel Osborn has got to be in there. I love Jodi foster performance in taxi driver. She was only fourteen years of age playing in the film. A twelve year old prostitute. She's incredible movie so I've got to get jodie foster in there. I mean. I really WANNA get tatum. O'neal in there for paper Moon says I just saw it but honestly does it get more icon than Judy Garland. How can you have a list of chop performances? Not Judy Garland in the wizard of Oz. That's right there's no place like home and as far as one more spot although I would lean towards a Leonardo DiCaprio what's eating Gilbert grape. Linda Blair the exorcist Jacob Tremblay for room but I'm GONNA go with that little new Abigail Breslin for little Miss Sunshine. She's so funny in so plucky. Here's a song that my Grandpa taught me incredible final scene honorable mention to Christian Bale also for Empire The Sun. God there's some good ones here. Now Lee Portman Leon the professional but instead my list is this Haley. Joel Osmond jodie foster. Judy Garland and Abigail Breslin Joe. Well first and foremost L. Agree with you for Judy Garland. I cannot imagine a different actress in that role sell put around for the wizard of Oz. I'm also going to go with Linda. Blair for the exorcist. Her being possessed And then my sleeper pick go with the Elsie Fisher for the berm directed movie eighth grade. I loved her in that movie so much and then to round it out. Macaulay culkin homeowners. The more importantly home alone two loss to New York. That is my mount rushmore feeling. I'm looking this list go now. He's Joe MacAulay Culkin lists. That's that's a good call. That may be psychotic. Judy Garland the wizard of Oz. Imagine anybody else Collie Kalkin. That's a good call by you. You're listening better than monarch can't not have MacAulay Culkin on my good list. As far as some other performances by their Brooklyn Prince is great in the Florida project. That Willem dafoe movie. Search or Ronin atonement as jean-pierre layered in the four hundred blows truffaut movie. Pretty good list here. If you like it you dislike. Let us know. Sinophile pod Adnan virk. Now it's time for total recall. Total recall all right now. It's time for total recall. WanNa keep this little more recent at least this one. So films from Twenty Fifteen which was twenty six thousand. Oscar's a great film especially if your journalism major like me. Spotlight won best picture. What else was nominated that year? Joe The big short bridge of spies Brooklyn Mad Max fury road the Martian the Reverend and room I kept. I always kept laughin- the fact British spies. I thought it was a metaphorical title. It's actually literally like the movie ends with a bridge of spies could never get over that in some ways. It was a disappointment. Because you're gonNA Talcum Ball with Spielberg. The coen brothers wrote the script. But I always stunned. It was nominated for best picture. That's crazy to me. I don't think it's best movies. The big short is awfully inventive. In Very Funny Brooklyn. I think is overrated. Sorry Dan stands the Martian laughingly the Golden Globes had it not only for best original motion picture. Comedy or musical was not particularly a funny movie. The revenues some argue for. I thought it was a little long. I'll be honest room claustrophobic. And really expertly acted but my pick as gotta be mad. Max Fury Road. I think it's the greatest action movie ever. Doug Mitchell and George Miller incredible movie it actually won the most Oscars that year. Which as I said to somebody okay. Fis technical categories. If you win the most you are the best so mad Max Fury Road Joe. I would've lost my mind won best. I was thrilled. Spotlight one but Mad Max Guerrero. That could watch once a week me too. I have to agree with you here. This this year is look over. The the winner is it's puzzling now. Given retrospect how Mad Max didn't win. And how re watchable. That movie is compared to a lot of the other movies on the list. But I'll go with mad MEX for sure. Yes so best. Director is one hundred two for the revenue. Hang on a second dude. You already one for Birdman. Okay I get that. A lot of long takes different movie. How the Hell is George Miller not win for Mad Max Fury Road again? This this should have been more than a lock than any other. Category Miller should've won best director even before mad. Max One Best Picture. But for the sake of amusement give us the other nominees. Adam McKay the big short George Miller Mad Max fury road. Money Abramson for room and Tom McCarthy for spotlight. I mean listen. I Love McCarthy spotlight though direct Visually it's not particularly strong should have been George Miller Joe. I'm sure you agree. Best Actor was Leo for the remnant. Who else was nominate Bryan Cranston? Trumble Matt Damon for the Martian Michael. Ask Bender for Steve Jobs and Eddie read main for the Danish girl never could get through the Danish girl Cranston. I DID WATCH. I love Metron. Bo is not particularly strong. Movie Matt Damon was fine in the Martian. Listen Leo's a great actor and I mean listen the steam of the bear. I guess I guess that alone should win an Oscar. So what the Hell? And he'd never one and it was obviously a career lifetime achievement awards. I'm finally a winning but fast been a really good Steve Jobs. Aaron sorkin terrific script and fast dinner nails the fact that jobs was just such an unlikable guy very smart and very controlling and manipulative. But I'm fine with the fact that he'll one lifetime achievement award. Yeah I agree with you. I think If you're gone with him I will definitely go with Leo. Even if it was more of a lifetime achievement thing best actress was the right choice. It was bree Larsen for room. What else was nominated? Cate Blanchett for Carol Jennifer Lawrence for Joey. Charlotte rampling forty-five Years Sursee Ronin Brooklyn. Search has been nominated five times which is amazing. How young she is. But I don't think Brooklyn was particularly memorable Jennifer Lawrence. This was a joke of nomination. Joys just woman at a mop like how the hell economic that is brutal to me. Cate Blanchett always fantastic a woman in love with another woman at a time when you couldn't do that. Carol's about repress love beautifully. Shot Todd Hays Etcetera Brie Larson knocked Parker a really arrival in Hollywood. Playing a woman trapped with her son heartbreaking movies. She was great. I with you bree Larsen for sure for room but also acting opposite of another great child performance and Jacob Tremblay so I give her props for that too so Brie some room gripe point best. Supporting actor was a stunner. Mark Rylance bridges spies playing Rudolf Abel. He had one nothing prior to that. Go back and check that year everyone was sticking also buster stallone's GonNa win an Oscar for acting playing rocky Balboa and creed. He doesn't win. Rollins wins huge up. Say what else was Christian. Bale for the big short Tom Hardy the revenue mark ruffalo spotlight and Silvester stallone creed let Riley. The best part of bridges spies which is saying something as soon the Cohn brothers wrote the SPEC Spielberg with scripts gives me. Spielberg directed it. Tom Hanks was in it. And yet rylance was tremendous. Would it make a difference? I mean he's so good so understated but I think it should have been ruffalo playing Michael Zander's when the film wins Best Picture. I always like when the act- gets recognized. His performance was excellent playing a guy who has no life a dog reporter that whole ensemble him. Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams. They're all wonderful. So would have been nice if Ross one on behalf of them and I think he's a great actor giving great performances over the years. I WanNa Ruffalo to win. Yeah that's a good pick. I I really liked Christian bill in the big short but I just didn't think he was in the movie long enough for him to win. Best supporting actor but I'll go silvester stallone for creed love that movie. Love that reiteration of the story saw goats Silvester still all right best. Supporting actress was at least if a cantor for the Danish girl. What else was nominated? Jennifer Jason Leigh the hateful eight Rooney Mara. Carol Rachel McAdams Spotlight and Kate. Winslet for Steve. Jobs never seen the Danish girl said. Oh mean to slam mcandrew. I don't know how good she was or wasn't good. Winslet always solid and steve jobs or anymore yes touching and Carol. I really pulling for McAdams Canadian again. I would like to spotlight win. Something for acting as would have been really nice of ruffalo McAdams one but honestly Jennifer Jason. Leigh is hilarious. The hateful eight the amount of abuse she takes at the hands of Russell. Just how filthy. She is diving into Tarantino's dialogue rarely in his that kind of performance get rewarded. I would have liked seeing Jennifer. Jason Leigh Win an Oscar. I agree with you especially in a year where it didn't seem like the hey fillet was really nominated for any of the big categories. I would like for somebody from that. Cast him from a fantastic movie to have won something. So Jennifer. Jason Leigh. For sure I agree to more to go. Best original screenplay. This one was a no brainer. Tom McCarthy Josh Singer. If you like spa you know. It's a tremendous script and they won for best original screenplay. What else was nominated? Bridge of spies X. Mahina inside out straight out of Compton. I like the inside out nomination. I mean that is a wonderful story to really really smart inventive script about you know different emotions or in a child's had it really is a great strip by Pete doctor so if it spotlight I would've voted for inside out X. Mocking definitely has some really amusing moment. If you like SCI FI. It's out there bridges spies. I mean that's a token nomination. The cohn brothers have made many many other great movies and that script is particularly notable. I would have gone with SPA. Incidental pretty good though. Yeah I think it spotlights given but I'm GONNA go with X. Might give that a little bit of thought. It was a super original script and really really liked in scarlet for that being his debut filmed thoroughly enjoyed it definitely x. mine great dance sequence in there as well. The screenplay goes to the big short advocate. Charles Randolph again. I think this was the correct choice. What else was nominated Brooklyn? Carol the Martian and room. I mean maybe room just because it is such a claustrophobic story and the dialogue is really penetrating. And it's a surprising story. Where where it takes you. But I think Larson Kinda took the one there. I'm with you Joe. In terms of spreading it around would have been nice to the big short win one so they did win one for best adapted screenplay makes sense to me. This is some very convoluted theories about finances such and they made it very accessible. I mean you got Margot Robbie a bathtub. I mean there was ever smart. They did this to try to make it accessible. Yeah one hundred percent and I mean I really liked the Martian too but one of the things. That kind of annoyed me about the movie is that. There's this huge crisis going on and no one seems to like be mad or upset about it. You know like Matt Damon handled it very. Oh this is really great. Hey now I'm going to grow potatoes. You know what I mean And so I didn't think the script had enough. There's a lot of conflict but I don't think the characters lived the conflict. You know what I mean one hundred percent. I liked it but I'm with you. I don't think it was It was one of the best movies of that year. So I I would agree with you on that all right. That is sort of far. Thank you so much for checking. This always please go to apple. Podcast overcome the haters and give it some love. Their subscribe at Apple podcasts. There you can rate and review with this time. We looked back because it.

"This guy's a symphony conductor. You know German lineage. And Babe Ruth for that matter was of German lineage. I thought about that George Foreman. With of course and then he had the name of the. Babe Babe just stuck forever but you know I think about the way German Americans at that time were demonized and treated and you think of people today whether it's Arab Americans or whatever enemy that we tend to be fighting the time the way that sometimes Zena Phobia. The fires of racism can be stoked. I fell story very interesting. The way that he's being treated the way he was being viewed and again that parallel today. Speak a little bit about mach and his his journey. Yeah Carl is a fascinating figure. You know his story is a reminder that the war wasn't just being fought against the Germans in Europe it was being fought in the United States against German and German Americans and so he had been a famous world renowned conductor the face of the Boston symphony orchestra and in nineteen seventeen. He and the members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. They go to providence for this concert. And supposedly he is act to perform the Star spangled banner to conduct the Star spangled banner. Now he doesn't know that this request is come in it went to these other officials of the BSO but after the concert has played the newspapers in Providence. They excoriated him. They claimed that he refused to play the Star spangled banner. He's anti American. And this launches a scandalous investigation from newspaper writers but more devastating to look at the beginning of an investigation from the Justice Department. The Bureau of Investigation begins looking into his activities through nizing his relationships. This friendship and they find that you know. He had a close relationship with the Kaiser. He was very good friends with the German ambassador. To the United States Johann von Bernstorff. Who was really the spymaster operating in America at that time? And so what happens that after this this concert and providence the newspapers they are generating this anti German hysteria against him he becomes the villain in the United States. Teddy Roosevelt. The former president says that muck who refused to play the Star spangled banner should be sent to an internment camp and that becomes this dominant message. That in light of the war in the propaganda. That's being turned out by American newspaper. Writers and the government. He's treated as a spy. Well the reality was. There was no evidence that showed that Karl muck his relationship with the ambassador from Germany would actually a spy and in fact in reading the documents from the bureau's Investigation Randy Robertson. I saw very clearly that the bureau at one point had said there is no evidence that he is acting On behalf of the German government but there were still agents in Boston. Who didn't believe it? They refuse to believe it so they continue to investigate him and what they discovered that. Karl muck like Babe. Ruth was a womanizer and he had a lover who was a singer in the boxes. Symphony Orchestra named Rose Him on young and in these love letters. He's passionate letters. Muck made all these anti American statements and at that time that was enough evidence for the government to say that he is an enemy alien he is dangerous and he should be sent to an internment camp. It's crazy as harrowing. That story is the war. Passages are particularly strong as well This is from page two hundred fifty six. I attended Frederick Tomato. Three hundred seventh and a couple of scout stubbed out of the pocket. He was overwhelmed by the stench. It smells like a glue factory. There were dead and decomposing soldiers everywhere though it was too dark to get a good look. He tripped into a shell hole. A man credit him like a puppy and his comrade lunged at Tim with his band that Tillman saw that they were Americans. I'm looking for major Whittlesey. I don't give a damn who you are and what you want the man replied you. Just step on my buddy again and I'll kill you. I mean those war passages mean we as top as it is right now John Everett Smith say the other day. Hey don't say we're going through a war right now because nobody can say that unless you've actually lived through a war and reading your masters realize how Harrowing Journey was for whittle's in so many others Obviously fighting the Great War. How Whittlesey Harvard Law Grad? He's not someone that you would imagine. Would it become a war hero? He's an attorney. He's an intellectual scholarly he's inward looking He wasn't married. She didn't have children. He had few friends is not someone looking for fame but he becomes as a hero of the war. Because in October of nineteen eighteen he leaves this unit becomes known in the press. As a loss of Italian this unit of about six hundred men Only about two hundred of them survive after being pummeled by the Germans. And it's the it's the way that whittle's league was able to lead when they were being just hammered under fire by the German that he was courageous that he was performing all sorts of remarkable deeds to save fellow soldiers to keep their their them focus at a time when they went over a hundred days without food and water and they come out of this moment the lost battalion. You know they break through the German lines and when we don't come home he's carrying the the memories of the war with him he can't escape the he's definitely have but we would call. Ptsd he's haunted by these. These memories of the war you know. Think about what these men experienced in the trenches. Seeing your fellow man your your friend your brother you know dying right in front of you you know sitting there in the trenches you know sick men deadman men would loss lens well. He had nightmares trousers. He comes back and he has nightmares. And it says if you can't escape the war because everywhere. He Goes Veterans Administration Hospital. Some kind of Red Cross events People are asking him about the war. You know mothers are asking them. How did my son Die Wiser ask him. How did my husband does and he tries to give them a story that they can hold onto something that might give them some comfort but nobody could comfort Charles Widows Li. It didn't matter that he had won. The Congressional Medal of honor for that people were writing about him and shaking his hand and praising him he wasn't interested in any of that but the fact is that the government wanting US whittled fleet. That in the moment when Woodrow Wilson is campaigning. The United States to join the League of nations the government needs widows widows in favor of the League of Nations. He aboard war. You said no war should never exist. I don't WANNA see Americans joins in the fight of another war and so he gets behind the Woodrow Wilson's Idealistic Vision for the League of nations to become the peacekeeping body of course. Us is not actually joining the week of nations but ultimately what does we. This war is something that he can't escape. He can't put it behind him when he closes his eyes. He can see the barrage of fire as if he's living there on the western front all over again and it becomes just too much to bear. Great stuff Johnny Smith. You can follow him on twitter at sports history. Prov H. I. S. T. Profit Corsey is a great history. Professor and I mentioned his book the wonderful fatal French L. Malcolm X. also has written the rise of Mickey Mantle which with Randy Roberts and the sons of Westwood John Wooden Ucla and the dynasty that Changed College Basketball's clearly huge sports guy and hopefully get sports back sooner rather than later. John sure you like many right now are suffering as am I? I've one of the questions that you are a history on such a big movie Guy. One of my favorite historical movies doesn't I could ask you about glory or something like that but I want to ask her to me which. I love what you call gangs of New York. Martin Scorsese's film starring Leonard. Daniel Day Lewis. I don't know how much you study that Arab history but is that accurate to that time. Because I find that whole story the five points again to be very timely today dealing with Zina fall in the way that violence really kind of made New York City. What it was you know. I haven't necessarily studied the accuracy of the film but what I can say is that the theme. The context are in fact accurate. They're certainly in that period. And the early eighteen and up in the eighteen sixties Tensions between White Anglo Saxon Protestants and Irish American and in fact in my sports history course at Georgia Tech. I played the clip where Leonardo DiCaprio gets into a bare knuckle fight in that flew right And the reason I played that clip I want to show the students how did bare knuckle prize fighting become such an important part of urban culture in the mid to late nineteenth century and try to show them that you know it would spontaneous. This was a sport. Blood Sport of the urban underclass working class men unattached men who inhabited the saloons and brothels of that era it was not a regulated sport yet and in fact In the late nineteenth century boxing or price fighting Without law it was an illegal sport. It was not something that you were supposed to be doing now. Of course the local authorities could be bought off. Men encountered these kind of matches all the time. And what drove its popularity? Was I think a couple of things number one is these ethnic rivalries right for a saloon keeper or promoter in the late nineteenth century? You'VE GOT PEOPLE. Invested in a boxing match or brawl by labeling the fighters so you were A Whiting Saxon Protestant. And you were from certain neighborhood. You root for a fighter reflected your heritage and your values if you were Irish or Irish. American lived in certain neighborhood in Boston. You were invested in the outcome of that match because the fighters became cultural symbol of various groups on the one hand. It's a it's an ethnic and Tensions during the period that you'll the popularity of boxing in the late nineteenth century but it also speaks to the the the rituals of manhood and violence. And how for so many of these working class men? You proved your manhood by being able to beat the crap out of another man. And that's partly what helped separate these men in their neighborhood. It was the reputation how they were known in the neighborhood. That's great stuff johnny. I talked to for our certainly on all issues of history and Sports Professor Smith or special guests today tell people work and they pick up the Book War Fever Boston Baseball and American the shadow of the Great War you know. I hope that they pick it up by ordering local bookstores off Capella books here. A local bookstore in Atlanta has it of course the major retailers Barnes and Noble Amazon also are carrying the book. And I really appreciate you. Have in the onto the of course. Hopefully we'll get through this sooner rather than later and stay safe there in Georgia. I know things are opening up a maybe a little sooner than some would have liked but hang in there man. I hope people of the book I thought it was terrific and I look for the next book. Seriously you put together pretty good Career here so far keep it going. Thanks Johnny thank you so much.

"And associate professor of history of bomb on twitter at sports hissed. Profit H. I. S. P. R. O. F. He's the author of a terrific new book. It's called war fever Boston Baseball and America in the shadow the Great War and the reason I know Janis. He wrote one of the best books. They're reading the years which is called the fatal friendship between Muhammad Ali Malcolm X. that was written with Randy. Roberts as is this most recent book by brother had sent to me a birthday presidents phenomenal book so I highly recommend it along with war fever which Johnny sent me which I have read which we are going to get into now Johnny first and foremost. How are you coping there in Georgia? Things appear to be opening up rather quickly. How are you dealing with this pandemic? Well thanks for having me. You know we're doing well I'm home with my wife and my baby girl and you know for us. It's about spending time together. Going out for walks every day when the weather's nice and you know. I'm just trying to. You know maintain my focus on my family and I have a moment to escape and then my Home Office and do a little writing or talker folks like you about work fever. It's I think it's their -Peutic for me and I think we all need those kind of outlet so I appreciate the opportunity to talk to you. I appreciate you and you're right. This podcast is definitely been a real escape for me. And it's been nice to to dive into books as much as I love movies and obviously sports. It's a missing greatly. I have loved all the reading of able to do in. Your book really is fascinating because I was able to dive in and really appreciate where we were essentially ago. Let's start with that. Just the timing of this. I mean this is about the fall of nineteen eighteen when a fever gripped Boston. The streets emptying is paranoia about the deadly Spanish flu spread and of course the war was raging on. The enemy was lurking everywhere. This is awfully fortuitous. Timing Johnny you're talking about a pandemic those one hundred years ago and now we're dealing with the same. What attracted you and Randy to the subject matter. And how on Earth did you know this is going to happen to us again? You know we did not know there'd be a pandemic coming. I would've warned everybody But in all seriousness. You know we really were thinking first about writing a book about Babe Ruth in one thousand nine hundred eighteen. Of course. That's the year that the Red Sox win the world series against the Chicago cubs. It's also of course the last year of World War. One and we were really interested in this intersection of how Major League Baseball in the Red Sox in particular were shaped by the Great War in the disrupting the war produced for the city of Boston and for Major League Baseball. An really shaping ruth life but against that. Backdrop was the story of the Great Influenza in Boston in late. August of nineteen eighteen epicenter of the outbreak in the United States. And so it's a fascinating story to think about how the pandemic that erupts involved in In in in hit our military camps throughout the country and you know our soldiers fighting on the western front but in Boston the world series is played in the first week of September when the influenza is spreading rapidly throughout the city. And so we thought this was an opportunity to look at these stories how they intersect and to reflect on important moments in Boston. History Baseball History in American history. So there's three principal characters which you focus on Karl mock. Who's the German conducted? The Boston Symphony Orchestra accused of being an enemy spy found history particularly poignant Charles Widows Lee. A Harvard law graduate became an unlikely hero in Europe and the most famous baseball player. Have also you mentioned Babe Ruth? We'll get into Whittlesey second but this. I have to quote from the book because this is absolutely GonNa get people to buy the book because I started in. This started laughing my head off. This is about babe. Ruth is on page fifty. A Harry Hooper's skype. In the fact that Lord he ate too much he'd give a few big belches in rural cowboys let's go consuming hot dogs and Sodas and belching a low loud rumble was not the only thing. He did in excess. He ate raw meat. Seldom flush toilets treated farts as gifts to be admired and enjoy telling stories of sexual exploits. Once Bay proudly announcing the shower. The ladies from Boston. They'd recognized this cock anywhere. I mean Johnny. That is that is the stuff of literature right. Everyone Does Babe. Ruth was on the earth. All with that is that is great stuff. All thank you I mean. The the route tales are just endlessly entertaining. And of course you get these stories from people like Harry Hooper who played with Ruth and they talk about this guy who's completely uncivilized you know. And of course. He spent most of his youth and the equivalent of orphanage. A A youth home for boys. Saint Mary's in Baltimore. But that's that's sort of a sort of interesting insight. I think about him. Who is that? This is a guy who really never matured. You Know He. He played a boys gain. Its whole life. And he's like a boy You know he lived for the moment he lived this sort of Carpe Diem e so seize the day live in the now. He was totally uninhibited But he was krantz parents. You know good better ugly. You saw Babe Ruth for who he was at all times and of course. I think what's fascinating about nineteen eighteen that this is the moment when Ruth. The slugger begins to emerge. It's the moment when Americans sports writers in particular begin to see him in a new white. Because as a result of the draft decimating the red SOx roster By spring training eleven players on the Red Sox teams are either in the service or they're in a war industry and the team mead hitters roof had been a dominant left-handed pitcher but now Edward Barrel the manager recognizes. I've got to play ruth on the days when he's not pitching and he demonstrates his incredible ability to swing for the fences and this was really remarkable was totally unconventional for a ball player. Like Ruth To be swinging for the fences to be swinging the hit a home run like that was the strategy. He was all brawn at a time during the dead ball. Era involved players like ty Cobb behind the bunch. They're chopping at the ball. And so it's the seeds of a revolutionary moment in baseball and it transformed by Ruth and the war more on his personal life here. Because you're right. As an athlete he was anyone never seen before and those home runs. You still hear those expressions today. A ruthenian blast because of the fact he was doing something nobody else was doing. He was dwarfing the total Ticonderoga peashooter compared to to babe ruth as wielding his acts but as far as his personal again this is. This is II comedy. One Willing woman sued the next Marshall Hunt New York Daily News sportsmen or later observed that many of loose escorts were really only appeal to a man who just stepped out of prison after serving a fifty year sentence. Working Girl Service in regularly and didn't complain if there was a teammate in the next bed or if ruth munched peanuts are smoked a cigar during the act for ruth women were sources of Momentary Pleasure. Easily discarded left behind with the keys to a hotel room. I mean I felt so sorry as wife reading this while also thinking of this long lineage of athletes along the years you and I know listen I love Mohammed Ali and your book was tremendous but obviously a womanizer. Law these guys Michael Jordan. You name it. This is the life they lead but babe at that tendency to be taking it to a new level worse than anybody else at that time. No question He was not faithful to his wife. He was a womanizer In fact there's a great story by one of his Yankee teammates during the twenties. You Know Ruth brings us this woman back to their whole House. Sweet and Up All night making love to this woman and so he would go into the bedroom and then he would come out and he would smoke cigars and talk to his teammates and he'd go back into the room and continue you know Plundering this young lady and so in the morning ruth comes out. He's all shovels and he makes us to God. How many times did you bet that woman Ruth Says Gosh? I don't know count the cigars? There were seven cigars in a ashtray. Seven bucks I mean. The Guy was insatiable That's the way he was you know. He was constantly feeding himself feeding his ego trying to satisfy his his urges whether it was food or with women or with drink. Back who Babe Ruth was. Yeah it is certainly a man of enormous appetites. And you're right. You're setting the story within baseball in the war. And we'll get to Karl muck in a second but the part that I found particularly I mean. It was always sitting too close to home. Because it's doing all right now. The cabin fever. Is You talk on the fever really Grips Boston. And the fact that people literally are scared to leave their homes and the casualties like looking at those numbers Johnny. It's crazy in relation to population. How many people died paint the picture forces every day? I'm turning on CNN. Gone Okay Up New York City. Two hundred thousand cases. This many deaths like it's numbing but for Boston at that. Time gives the numbers and the data because that was jarring when I was reading that section. About just how much? Boston was impacted by the pandemic. Yeah so it's it's stunning to think about the In nineteen eighteen there about a hundred and three million Americans Who lived in the United States? Six hundred seventy five thousand. Americans died from the influenza outbreak in nineteen eighteen and nineteen nineteen in Boston Over the course of the fall of nineteen eighteen roughly between the timber in December of nineteen thousand nine hundred. Forty eight hundred. Bostonians died in Philadelphia. It was even worse. Twelve thousand people in Philadelphia died from influenza. One thing I would like to tell exclaimed here is that how does this influence outbreak even begin in house red? Well that's where the war stories so important in early nineteen eighteen it becomes clear in the military camps took physicians. But there's a new kind of flu. This is a virus that is pretty devastating and by March nineteen eighteen and camp funston Kansas. The doctors there. They have thousands of six soldiers. And they're not really sure what to make of it but in the spring of nineteen eighteen military authorities the government. They're not panicking. Okay but what happens? Is these soldiers begin carrying the virus from Tampa camp throughout the United States? And then they take it with them when they board on ships and they go to France and so by the summer of nineteen eighteen. What's happening is that the virus is spreading in the trenches. Were our soldiers are fighting trench warfare? Then those soldiers and sailors they bring it back to Boston in late August nineteen eighteen at the Commonwealth pier in the harbor. And then what happens? Is those soldiers and sailors. Some of them are so sick. It'd be hospitalized and others who may not realize they have it their asymmetric they march in a parade. They come into contact with civilian then. There was a draft registration in Boston. A hundred thousand men in various Paul throughout the city were shaking hands slapping each other on the back having a drink coughing sneezing. The virus spreads the civilian population. So you know. I'm not a medical expert. I'm not a medical doctor but what I can tell you is that there are parallels and how these viruses spread and. That's the key I think as people start to take a look for optimism. I'm GonNa read war fever and see what happened one hundred years ago and see how they got out of this and I'm sure the economy of course was hit hard back then just as being now but social distancing. I'm sure they didn't have that term back then johnny but that was going to be successful and that's ultimately what turned the tide here and that's what changed things but I feel particularly jarring just reading that sexual or as people were fatally to leave their homes. As you said to me off air at least you can go for a walk with your wife your daughter I can take my kids literally play catch in the backyard. Shoot hoops in the garage. Like at this time it was so gripping people were really terrified to leave their homes so that same hysteria is something that we're dealing with now absolutely. It was so bad in Boston. That ran out of coffin. You know there were bodies that were stacked up on the street. I mean it just you think about that imagery. It's stunning to imagine how desperate people were. And of course then as now. The hospitals were overwhelmed. They were not equipped to deal with the number of desperate patients that were showing up and this this virus in nineteen eighteen was and it was killing people in ways that physicians have never seen before and yet there was this response from local officials. That in some cities was delayed that they didn't want to warn people so they tried to manage the truth. Managed the information which only proved more devastating and in fact you know historians who have studied the pandemic of one thousand nine hundred thousand nine hundred nineteen. What they've identified. Is that the cities that were most aggressive. The cities that were able to Enact the closure orders telling people okay. We're shutting down restaurants for shutting down bars. Schools are closing. We're not having church services those actions if they blind and in fact. The city's acted more aggressively that we're able to do that sooner than later. We're able to mitigate fatalities and protect people now on the flip side of that in Boston for example A few weeks after the world series ended the city and next a closure order now by that kind. You have hundreds of people in Boston who have already died. Thousands infected they would have this closure order in place for about a month when they lifted the closure order in late October of nineteen eighteen. Health officials warn the public. They said you can go outside of your home's and but be aware that this virus is not dissipated as not disappeared. You can still be vulnerable to getting sick well. Of course people were so eager to go back to the saloons and back the DANCEHALL That they didn't listen and what we'll see. Is that in the aftermath of the armistice which took place on November eleventh nineteen eighty people were celebrating the streets and there were parades everywhere. There were devotees fuel another waving third wave of the pandemic that goes into nineteen nineteen. Let's talk about Karl muck because he's a fascinating character and I think this again is timely johnny because it talks about Zena Phobia and the fact..

"Like these one thought. I just wanted to close in here by paper Moon Peter. Donald City showed the script Orson Welles before he showed it to me. Said what. Do Think of the title paper Moon and Orson Welles as I don't even need to read the script. That's an incredible title that he's going to be a hit. He said that has a tremendous title. The we came up with the title is he was listening to some music. Bogdanov's like a one thousand nine hundred nineteen fifty songs like a love song. It's talking about their love being like a paper moon and that's it came with the title so if you ever wonder what the. Hell titles come from and I agree with them by the way. That is a great title was right. You know what stick with that talent. You're GONNA have a hit Moving on in terms of titles lots of titles expect to be at the Venice Film Festival. And they're going to go forward with or without can how about this. Everything's being pushed to the fall or cancelled entirely do the Koran Avars Pin democ. The Venice Film Festival sticking to its plans for September September twelfth. They're going to stick with it right now. I mean listen strict. Social distancing regulation forced to canned film festival postponed. This year's event wants to mid July and a second time indefinitely venison says they're going to keep on going in case you're wondering what's the importance of the Venice Film Festival. Well Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix Film. That I did not like it actually won the golden line. Which is the best picture at the Venice Film Festival and therefore had a lot of momentum going into Oscar season where we were and actually led all nominees for the most Oscar nominations from last year. Speaking of Joaquin Phoenix. He turned in a stunningly performance. In Joker won best actor Oscar but in an interview with Empire magazine Mother and Black Swan. Director Darren Oscar said his vision for a new take on Batman would have involved Phoenix Not Christian. Bale the Batman. That was out before me was Batman and Robin the famous woman's Nipples and the bat suit so I was really trying to undermine that and reinvent it. That's where my head went. The studio wanted Freddie Prinz Junior and I wanted to Joaquin Phoenix. I remember thinking our rick in two different films here. That's true story was different time. The Batman I wrote was definitely a way different types of take than they ended up making warner brothers had tabbed or nausea. Take a stab at a new direction. Batman this is in the early two thousands after the success is great film requiem for a dream about that show up Darren Aeronautic. It made Batman rather than Christopher Nolan and it was Joaquin Phoenix Knock Christian Bale or even if the studio did it which would have been Freddie Prince Junior Man. I can't see Freddy Prince Junior plane that man but I would love absolutely love to see an aaronow. Ski Joakim Phoenix Batman Movie. And I think it should still be made how about you. I Agree Listen Aronovski when I love his work. I love it like record for J. When I eight is work I ate it like mother. But there's no denying he's a hugely talented director and sometimes big directors make big misses. But I think with the Strike Batman and Joaquin Phoenix together. I'm with you. I think he'd be a better director than Todd Phillips. I think he'd rain in some. Phoenix IS EXCESS. That we saw joker. So I'm with you one of the thought here right now. People are wondering. Who's winning right now? The pandemic meaning who is offering right now he keep ticking net flicks well how about a Hulu and parasite Bongino is para say a streaming monster since making its exclusive debut April eight on Hulu the streaming giant confirming to India wire. In just one week Peres become the most streamed independent or foreign language film among all titles available on who even more impressive. It's now the second most watched overall on Hulu ever among titles currently available to stream. What that means is that in one week parasite out stream the of popular titles such as how to train your dragon. A quiet place transformers the last night and creed to all of which have been available to stream and Hulu for several months. I've that's great news for me Joe Right now. We're all at home. We hope things work out but I love the fact that right now people are watching the best film of last year at least a film that won best picture one hundred percent and I. It's just good like you said it being foreign film it's not an easy watch like creed to or transformer. Some glad people are watching something of a little bit more substance out this line here the streamer event they had this event for Hulu. They shut down some tools and social media. One person wrote. It's not an English. No one wants to watch a movie that they literally have to read understand. What's going on? Hulu snap back if you want to read subtitles. You can always learn Korean. How's that for clapback? And now it's time for our special guests. Well real pleasure bringing Johnny. Smith is Julius. C Bud shop Professor Sports History.

"He's got. His fiancee is a stick in the mud. But let's just get going here. But instead streisand keep sticking our nose in his business. And the term screwball comedy. It's a so prehistoric at this point. This was the Preston sturges comedies. And Howard Hawks and so what? Bogdonovich did is like many great director. Hey I love movies of a certain era. Let me pay Omar's to them. So what's up? Doc was made one thousand nine hundred seventy two but could have just as easily offit one thousand nine hundred forty two and I was amazed at how funny it still is to this day. Lots of Double Entendre. Coincidences visual psych eggs. There's a car chase which S- San Francisco which is about as well orchestrated that can get. I mean the French connections heavyweight champion a car chases billy freaking nineteen seventy-three if the cartoon what's up Doc. It's ingenious the way that Bogdanovich plots the whole thing he produced and directed. The movie. Didn't write it. He was actually come up with the story for it. But it's got an excellent cashman. Randy Quaid shows up in the movie but strikes. You really is the star of the film and I was surprised. She's really really good. If the end there's a nod to love story Ryan O'Neal says Barbara streisand system. You know love means never having to say you're sorry and he says that might be the stupidest thing I've ever heard robbery or the Chicago. Sun-times wrote the strength of. But we like this is that you don't to believe too much for too long. 'cause there's something else happening that's the key with a sugar ball comedy. There's just such pacing to it. It's just so fast and whip smart. I think Bogdanovich in making it to a Jonah which you don't see anymore made a movie which is a worthy cannon to that now not everyone agreed with it. Jaycox Time magazine. I love Jaycox. Good friend discourse says he former film critic then became a writer he co wrote gangs of New York Jaycox and the result is a comedy made by a man who has seen a lot of movies knows all mechanics and has absolutely no sense of humor. I mean he's just buried them. Neil Minnow of common sense media this movies. A lot of fun does not come close to meeting the standards. The Moses trying to emulate well Baja humbug. Neil thought it was really funny and really enjoyable one other Bogdonovich before we get to some reviews and then our special guest Johnny Smith Paper Moon also from Peter Bogdanovich. This film came up a year later. It starts again Ryan O'Neal and this time his daughter Tatum O'Neal playing a couple of cons in the nineteen thirties or selling bibles in the Bible belt. And they're up to no good shot in black and white beautifully shot rustic landscape. I mentioned it too racy or in terms of movies that I love that the way they look but it's mainly notable because the fact Tatum O'Neal playing Addie loggins won an Oscar. And that's GonNa be our Mount Rushmore Airport. Great Chop performances because of tatum. O'neal like I said I thought it was beautifully. Shot Movie Rodrigue himself in a period piece that uses generic conventions only when they apply see the depression through the eyes of characters who are allowed to be individuals it whereas lesson north by northwest. I'm getting a four maple leafs. What's up doc? I give three and a half maple leaves in the case of paper moon. I'll give it two and a half April leaves. I didn't think it had the same zip and timing as well. As the other donnas film I get the fact that the screwball comedy. Because that's going on one hundred miles an hour. I just didn't find this movie Ads Funny However Tatum. O'neal is very charming and very sweet. And because of that we're going to the Mount Rushmore child acting performances so a couple of Peter Bogdanovich Jones. If you haven't seen them you can check out.

"We did with her. She's unbelievable from better call. Saul been working on the interview for a while and it came through last week. So hopefully you saw pop up on On your subscription here and she was great so go to Apple spotify wherever you get your podcast checkout racy. Thirty minutes of her she plays Kim Wexler and better call Saul. They just had the season finale last night it was terrific as expected one more season better call. Saul to go and watch the show. I think you'll appreciate her insights into into acting and what's going on with the small Screen Cup other moves to review as well. We're going way back is this is the one hundred twenty fifth episode of Sinophile. Whoever thought that would happen seventy eight episodes at ESPN and now a cadence thirteen? We had the rest of those so my thanks of course to Dan stanic. Rick Passmore cleric all my French museum and of course my man Joe and Shaun Cherry and everybody helping us out now John. Mcdermott Chris Corcoran everyone. Who's allowed us to continue or a cadence thirteen? It's been a blast so for one hundred twenty fifth episode not only north by northwest. But a couple of other movies from Peter. Bogdanovich is a director. I know but didn't know his movies right well. So what's up? Doc and paper moon reviews. Also some news involving Darren aaronow skiing his chance of making Batman. Why parasites doing so well on. Hulu and a male rushmore chop performances. Because Tatum O'Neal won an Oscar for paper moon. She just a kid. So how about the Mount Rushmore Chop performances also total recall the twice sixteen. Oscars which are the moves of two thousand fifteen and our special guests. Johnny Smith who was a history professor at Georgia Tech who specializes in sports in history. He's got a new book out which is terrific. It's called war fever Boston. Baseball and America in the shadow of the great war talking about the pandemic of nineteen eighteen and Johnny's really eloquent guy and very smart and passionate. So I really enjoy the interview as much as I think. You'll enjoy the book couple of reviews here coming up. Doc Lou Iowa here and Apple podcasts Midwest humor you prefer to Jay Leno is midwest humor he is from Boston. Letterman is from Indiana actually saw Leno in the early eighties. Doing stand up when I was in college in DC hilarious. Thank you for the point Jay Is from Boston actually from Andover Massachusetts to be specific what I meant by mid West humor is his humor would always play well in the mid West. Meaning it was kind of square and soft and down the middle and Letterman's humor always resonate in New York and Los Angeles just a different style and different sensibility. Whenever they would look at the ratings as a matter of fact for the tonight show versus late show with David Letterman. Jay always owned the hearts of those in the heartland which is why referred to it as mid West Humor. But thank you for clarifying that. Also the bad guy one to seven. A fun informative entertaining. Pod loved the total recall. Mount Rushmore segment is always good for a quick argument starter. Always great reviews one criticism. Does Joe say anything before he says I completely agree? All right find Joel Joel. Think of other things to say then and this one. We just got crushed. Wc Dwight stone from nineteen hours ago liberal left wing views one star again. I rank my movies at a former police. Pleased to give us a five star review unlike WBZ Whitestone one-star shake my head. Why so many people like to bring politics in their podcasts etc. Great Way to eliminate forty percent plus of their audience. I think we bring politics into the podcast with the exception of last week in which we were talking about last week John Oliver and I even said even if you don't share his politics I think that he's still an entertaining performance so I disagree with you. Wc whitestone. I don't think I bring politics into the podcast every week. But Joe your thoughts and they. I feel we've done a pretty good job at toe in the line but I completely agree with you on it. I knew that was covered. I stand with my buddies. Show his here where he is going to take that at all right. Thank you a gift for the views. Please help offset. Wc Whitestone by putting a better review. Everyone's GonNa Blind spot right no matter who you are. No matter what star. You are athlete's performance as always something you haven't done so I'm going to few blind spots which I have to admit to. And Mark Simon who is a loyalist or the podcast always offer feedback. Great Guy Follow him on twitter. Follow me on instagram. I believe he's Reading Baseball. Books to people right now. He said to me a good mood recommend because he'd watch the stranger which I appreciate that. Mark took to heart my recommendation on that flexi loved it. Orson welles terrific. What else you got for me so I said Okay. You should watch out of the past. It's a great Robert Mitchum film the War. He liked that as well so he said I believe. His mother recommended to north by northwest and honest. Admission I've never seen north by northwest. So I gotta go see that 'cause I can't lie to mark he will now listen to this and then text me because he will notice. I did not say integrate feeling just like okay so I've rectified. The fact I'd never seen it and perfect timing because my man Ben Mankiewicz and Turner Classic Movies. They're doing their virtual fast and they aired north by northwest and even better my man Joe who had not seen it also sought over the weekend. So we're all locked in on this nineteen fifty nine film. If you've never seen it want to know what it's about. The Classic Suspense Film Finds New York City Ad. Executive Roger Thornhill played by Cary grant pursued by ruthless by Philip Van Damme. That's right. I kept thinking Jean Claude Van Damme. Every time they kept calling James Mason's character vindamme thornhill is mistaken for a government agent hunted relentlessly by Van Damme's associates the Harry. Thornhill ends up on a cross country journey beating the beautiful mysterious Eve Kendall Eva. Marie Saint along the way. Soon van. Damme's henchmen closing on thornhill resulting number of iconic action sequences. When it comes to old movies you have to always think about accessibility. Meaning if I TRY TO WATCH BERRY LINDEN WHICH. I've tried to watch a couple of times I can never get through it score. Says he loves it. Natural Light Kubrick classic. I just can't do it. It's just too damn boring. So in the case north by northwest someone says well. I'm not really an old movies black and white but this is incredibly accessible. In fact I would say this might be hitchcock's most accessible movie if I lined up north by northwest and Vertigo and rear window and the birds and psycho. I'd say okay if I was. Let's say an eighteen year old. Who was not seen these movies? I actually think north by northwest might be one that translates the most because the fact. It's just a great suspense thriller. It's really good pacing. There's no wasted dialogue performances are excellent. I mean Kari Grant. I always think he's British. Because he's got that imperious haughty manner about him but he is clearly a man of elegance and movies like the Philadelphia Story. But here he is that innocent man on the run and he's got a great sense of humor early on after you know. He snatched up. He says not that. I mind the occasional case of abduction. But I have tickets to the theater. Tonight's if you'll just let me go. James Mason always great love them in the verdict and even Marie Saint. I mean talk with heart-stopper you can fall in love with her but it is those action sequences the famous one of course is the the plane the crop duster plane. And he's stuck in the middle of nowhere. Cary grant's character and another guys. They're getting a ride on a bus and it looks at the crop duster plane. That's weird. It's dusting crops but there's no crops there and then boom. The plane comes towards him as I tweeted. Adnan virk Sinophile pod. You can follow us. You know that's one of the most timeless shots ever is a crop duster plane swooping in cary grant that whole sequence is tremendous. It's only a few minutes long but so suspenseful. So well edited and masterfully shop by Alfred. Hitchcock that it's still suspenseful to this day. And then the ending takes place at Mount Rushmore. They didn't actually shoot of course at Mount Rushmore. Just the exterior shots and then after that they bill sets but really cool sequences there and you just look at the inventiveness even the script by Ernest. Lehman is so good. At one point. He's talking to Martin Landau. That's right Martin Landau planned. The bad guy. Looks rather creepy in the movie and Mason says to him after they realize that even Marie Saint is playing them. She's actually an agent. He says this matter is best handled from a great height over water and before it goes to from a great height. The camera tilts up they know hitchcock asked my buddy tim. Kirch LOVES NORTH BY NORTHWEST. The high angles always imply something about impending doom. And even the final shot not to give it away. Spoiler alert sixty one years later once. They're together carrot. Marie Saint they start kissing. And then it cuts to a shot of a train going through a tunnel and that was hitchcock's way of having them make love that's right. Think of the Phallic image of a train going through a tunnel and he said this way can get past the censor boards. But what he's saying is that there are copulating. So I mean there's lots of smart winks and nods and and hitchcock himself is so cheeky and I just think it's such an entertaining movie north by northwest four maple leafs. Finally my blindspot has been taken care of. I saw a great movie over the weekend. Joe What'd did you think of this hitchcock. Classic a thought it completely holds up the master of suspense. The way in one thousand nine fifty nine he was able to get the crop duster chase down. Cary grant in the field. Found out that that was all done in studio after that found out later. Adnan that Jimmy Stewart really wanted the lead and so Hitchcock didn't want him to play. He wanted cary grant because he thought he would play the role better so he delayed production of the movie until Jimmy Stewart had signed onto a different picture before offering Jimmy Stewart the role tongue-in-cheek knowing he would have to turn it down. That's great. That's a good little nugget out of you. Got Famous. Actors are like cattle. Had No respect for actors. Didn't think they were important. Everything about the director of myself. I can appreciate his ego. I think he's wrong diminishing actors but that's interesting that he wanted grant or Jimmy Stewart. Yeah and what did he think of the know? You just mentioned the the train going into the tunnel but overall as a whole it goes from like the climax to the ending super abruptly. So what did you make of that yeah? I was a little surprised with that. You're right that shot of her lifting boom there muck I would have liked a little bit more there but I didn't think it was clever. Though as they were being economical at that point. I mean that whole sequence is really amazingly shot I mean. They literally got Jefferson's knows they're hanging onto if he had nose hairs. That might have saved a life to and I was just funny. Seeing Martin Landau to me last time I was picturing him was like an entourage is that somebody could be interested in and all of a sudden you seem such a young man. It's always interesting when you see these older actresses young men. That's always jarring for me too. Oh yeah that's why I think Someone like Steve. Martin had a lucky by going great in his twenties. Now he just looked the same. Every since you're right the prematurely Greg Steve Martin. I love it Jack. Moffitt of Hollywood reporter wrote Hitchcock is such a master of suspense that not many frames have passed for. The audience has achieved complete identification with the characters. And there's doing the thrill of carriers spirit and the shared pleasures of love and passion. Next film is called. What's up doc? Peter Bogdanovich if you're watching as I do they got a podcast coming out. The plot thickens came went to listen to it with Ben Mankiewicz our friend and Bogdanovich. A couple of his moves. They showed last week. So Peter Bogdanovich is one of the seventy s directors. He was known for three movies. All three were huge hits at the time and then unfortunately things fizzle and a few bombs after that some personal tragedy struck and now he's film historians who was great friends with John Ford and Orson Welles and if you're like me you know him as Elliot Playing Lorraine bracco shrink in the show so I certainly been around a long time limit interesting life. But what's up? Doc was when he was really knocking it out of the park and it was about to researchers come to San Francisco to compete for a research grant and music. The man seems a bit distracted. That was before he met a strange woman who is devoid our life to confusing and embarrassing him. At the same time a woman has her jewel stolen and a government. Whistleblower arrives the stolen top secret papers. It Stars Barbra streisand Barbra streisand pass. I'm right now. This is Barbara. Streisand are most appealing and likable. All right. This isn't prince of tides Barbra streisand. This is actually a really warm. Funny fetching care. Toronto PLSY UPTIGHT Guy. Banister whose F. Fiancee's Madeline Kahn. It's too it's too love to record and Mel Brooks movies like blazing saddles and young Frankenstein. And they're together but Barbra streisand just keeps popping up and causing mayhem. And she's cute and sweet and charming. But she's a real pain in the thought of Ryan O'Neal who's just uptight guy who's trying to get this important business done and he's got. His fiancee is a stick in the mud. But let's just get going here. But instead streisand keep sticking our nose in his business. And the term screwball comedy. It's a so.

Colts face different Titans' threat with Ryan Tannehill at QB

"Sunday. It is the titans and Ryan Tannehill. Dan Hill really happy for him. By the way at the Indianapolis Colts Starwood Tannahill and the November December Munster known as Derrick Henry. Well here's the thing with tannehill now barring the complete face plan the question is just how many guaranteed years does he get from the titans because because he's GonNa be the quarterback next year. They're really the running an efficient effective offense. I think he's up around fifteen yards of completion over his last two games. The problem is with Tennessee. Hennessy is. He isn't throwing the ball a whole lot so we had eighteen. Pass attempts against Jacksonville last week. Now of course two rushing touchdowns in two passing touchdowns so he he wants somebody a lot of money in DFS. But it's it's one of those things where decided Lamar Jackson. You really don't think that that's tenable. Because he's a good Ron. Everybody's not an explosive one but then he had the nineteen pass attempts against Kansas City. A couple of weeks ago. This is how they WANNA play. So I think Tannahill the hill is a streamer streamer the quarterback the problem is i. Don't trust any of his wide receivers because AJ Brown had the big game and Jacksonville but two weeks exco. He had the terrible game just one catch against Kansas City. So I'm not really trusting any of that. I think Corey Davis is flat out droppable right now because I have a tough time saying to myself. When am I going to play Corey Davis in any of my line at this point and so I think he's droppable? Ryan Tannehill has accounted for for over nineteen fantasy points and multiple touchdowns in each of his five starts his nine point two yards per attempt is leading the NFL. He's playing really well. And I think the colts are a gettable matchup even if it's not a pristine one but the guy you always trust here is Derrick Henry. You had a third touchdown last week wiped out because of a screen pass. The the colts are really struggling to score points right now and we heard this week. That t y Hilton so far isn't sure he's going to be ready to go on Sunday. This projects to be a lower scoring game in Indianapolis and that means all systems go for Derrick Henry locked in rb one locked in court. DFS play tight end for the titans writings. Nobody worthwhile nobody useful Delaney Walker. Could be back. Johnny Smith didn't even have a target last week. He had a carry their they got one in target for Michael Pruitt. Firkh sir. Didn't have a target Dennis Kelly the backup. Tackle got a touchdown. The tight ends and Tennessee are useless. It's really Tannehill and Henry Henry at this point of the season the only two guys that I can consider with any sort of confidence.

"Like I know this girl and when. You find that people are like, Manny. She stiffer you. Okay. And everybody's like she doesn't touch me. I'm like, yes. That's like that's mcgurn. It's like she followed him footsteps. And it's it makes me really proud. And like you talked about with, with Charlotte and Jan I've talked about this, on the pod before when people come and ask you advice and u u k well, and you give it to them, and then they don't even try to implement it. That, that's the person that I'm, I'm not going to have open ears for anymore. I'm not gonna be, you know, a person that you can come to now. But if you at least try it see if it works if it doesn't, hey, bad on me. Sorry if you've got barest out there, but if you try it, and you go, and you see it's almost like people here, the dog whistle because I've had instances, where people ask me advice or whatever. And I said, okay, if you try this here, try this here, just lay out a little bit here, try that they're, and then watch it and see it happen. And then hear the crowd react in the way that thought it was going to. And it's almost like their head turned sideways like oh shit. And those are the people that you, you wanna continue to help, right. Yeah. And you you very quickly. No one's that when they ask for your advice, they just want to hear how much you liked them thought they were good. Yeah. And there's some that'll take the advice but they really don't use it. And then there's those ones that and to me, it's, it's the ones that then ask a question. Those ones, I really like because again, I don't have all of the answers, Jay doesn't have all needed at them. But you know what if one of these guys is telling me something I need to think about. And if I question it, it's like it's almost you ask them go. Okay. Well, I was thinking this, why did you say that way? It's like I'm fine with that. Because it's like that's how you learn. And you can tell the ones that put the fought in and like you say when you see that it clicked in their head and go. It's a really cool feeling because that's how the business is going to stay alive. And stay great is each new generation learning from the previous, and in many cases, taking the next generation even new heights. But you've gotta learn from those that were there, I think that's probably with every job. You know what I mean? You gotta learn from those who made the mistakes, and learn from it. And great point made the mistakes. I it's not like anybody's infallible, every, you know, we all made those mistakes to learn those things or somebody buzzed us, whether it was Jerry, or whether it was, you know, Johnny Smith or by showing us in the ring, and the, you know, that, that's one of the great things in the time that we came up as there was still a boatload of guys who had so much more experience than us that we could get in there with and learn with. I mean, we're can Rick Martel, you know, seven days a week for three months. Man, you're gonna learn. And that's harder to come by now. Yeah. I can I can just imagine. I you know, I, I never got to work with Rick, but, you know, obviously just the amount of knowledge and experience, that dude had, you guys got to do those, those tag runs with him and dawn. And it's you know you just you've got to take advantage of those moments..

"Yeah. Yeah. And, and that whole crew of guys like I mean, bad news. Jerry took us to Japan. Johnny smith. Took me when I didn't have a penny to my name, our roof over my head when I came to Calgary. And I mean those guys man, and like you said, Gama too, because they would they would bump all over the place for these young green guys. And I think it's because they saw something they saw that we cared. They saw that we were willing to work hard, and hopefully saw a future for us. I think I think that's why they did it all for us. I think so. Yeah. And I think on some level. Much like. And again, it's a small probably, but it's like I sit back and look at the success of again. Randy Orton and Brock Leser and many other guys that, you know, I helped out on some level on their way up and all the taught me w and stuff. And it's like it's comforting to know that you managed to give something back to the business that took the next generation somewhere. And I'd like to think that, you know, Gama and Jerry and Johnny and is no longer with satellite. But you know, they can sit back and see that, you know, you guys became world champion. And Ed, in particular, you know, was a longtime the champion that carried smack down for years, the top guy, and they can sit back and go they were part of that. And, you know, probably a bigger part of that than even they wanna take credit for because with that learning early on. Yeah. Well, and this is jumping way ahead of what I wanted to. But speaking of helping the next generation, I mean, do you wanna do the roll call of who's come through your classes out at storm wrestling kademi? If I include VW bigger, but, you know, just great now Pluto to. Mcadam e you know tie of Al who's the impact women's world champion. You know, only own only Larkin I hate that name.

"And you're head of the defending AFC champions, Mike Twenty-three with the point Bendik, and you got the floor down up one of the most beautiful games. I've ever seen. Oh, my kiva. Dave mcginnis, then chicken, the juice and why not titans radios? So it's tight tunes nation. Derrick. Henry ran for two scores mortgage mariota threw two touchdowns of his own. The titans outplay the patriots in all phases of the game. Thirty four seventeen final in Nashville aka Foxborough, south a lot to unpack their how badly were the pets. Throttled Tom Brady lifted from this game with seven minutes to play in favor of Brian Hoyer. Greg it's a signature win for rookie head coach like able and a dollar check disciple. Ooh, break it down the end. The last time the patriots last by this much after November started was two thousand ten against the Eric, man. Jeannie brown? So then happen. I don't think even losing a game by fourteen points. More much less twenty four. I don't think the sky is falling by any means in New England a lot of things came into this. And they're going into the bye. I don't think they're the best team in the league. Either. I wanna just give props to Marcus mariota for playing a third straight really clean game. A great job by the coaching staff on both sides of the ball and the young players from the titans just being better like Corey Davis was better than Stefan Gilmore, he killed Stefan. Gilmore during the key portions of this game, Johnny Smith who we haven't seen a lot from made a lot of plays a Dory. Jackson was awesome. Josh Gordon ended up with four for eighty one. Adoring Jackson really stuck with them talked about their two thousand seventeen transact. That's what I'm saying. They're young players were just kind of the better players. They were the best players on the field in showed. Let me ask you. This is Tom is Tom Brady a problem. No, no. I don't think. So this this game. I mean, he's not Tom Brady this year. He's about it. But I think the reason Tom Brady was Tom Brady is more upstairs and timing and being in sync with your offense and the the entire group. And that to me is what's the problem this year? It's not it hasn't. It's not like it's physical skills to me are much different. And I don't actually see a missing today. They lost their left tackle Trent Brown. They didn't have their all pro tackle or guard. Rather shack Mason they were given up plays. And I and I also I mean, they were given a pressure. But I also think it was playing another bell check disciple where they really took away. The I read that he has. And that's when Brady is so good, and they were disguising coverages, and they threw the kitchen sink at just like Matt Patricia did in week two. And he held it a little too long elements dropping passes Gordon dropped passes. It was it was just like a lot of everything. Josh Gordon was hurt in this game too. Wasn't. He hurt his finger at his he said his fingers were hurt. And that's maybe one reason why I had some struggles with droves, Mike variable. There's obviously a lot of DNA. Here's Mike rebel had his best years as a pro with the patriots got traded to the chiefs and had a falling out with Bill for a while. I guess they patch things up, but there's some bad blood. Speaking of bad blood, Malcolm Butler who got praised from. Tom Brady after the game also Dion Lewis who wasn't shy about talking about his thoughts about the game. And the two teams afterwards as well..
