The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 2 Released
"Young. Hey thanks for having me. I really like talking about. Star Wars. Yeah, and if you haven't seen Brian every week on the site has has like A. I WANNA call it a recap because I feel he gets much more than a recap. Would you call your your column about the mandatory in every Friday? You know I, kind of call it a review in that it does what I think or it it aims to do what I hope. Good criticism does is just shine lights on aspects of the. The show that people wouldn't have noticed whether that's in the filmmaking or the cinematic references or the mythological references and star wars. So I don't know, I, just call it a review but. Maybe. It's a little bit more depth than that to in this morning's one is like what two thousand words yeah just kept coming and I feel like I still in hit everything. And it's crazy to this year or at least for the first episode. Disney is not providing screeners for press. So you know all of us are actually did you stay up till midnight or did you watch it this morning? No I definitely watch this morning because it didn't come online until midnight Pacific Time which is two am my time and I'm getting too old to do that. I was up at midnight and I watched the thing and I was like I'll just go to bed after I couldn't sleep. I was up till three am just. Checking twitter reading up on things I. I was just like amped up. So bright you saw last right? No. I mean, in my time zone, it's one am in like Brad I'm getting too old for that sort of thing. So I got up at five actually to watch it and well, and I knew if I watched it last night, I was going to sit down in half to write my my review then. Go and I knew I wouldn't sleep. So I got up early in and got it done. Got It over to. To you all as fast as I possibly could. ANYWAYS, we're all on an even keel here. No one gets information ahead of time twenty twenty has sucked. But at least we have new season of the member Orien- right Maybe. It's over lining. I feel like it's the most excited I've been in a long time last night watching that episode Okay. Before you into the heavy spoilers I mean I wouldn't listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the episode so I'd go watch that on Disney right now but before we get to that, let's give our. Thoughts brief reactions and I'll start off by. Saying. This is how you do fan service. Right like Vincent gets bad rap I think that word is kind of used as a derogatory word in in certain ways but it was cool you know to. I feel like a lot of the stuff that was being done in this episode was not references for references sake it was the further story and then like when their work like interesting fan nods and reference it, you kind of have to connect the dots wasn't like. Oh look at that Blah Blah Blah. It wasn't like very obvious about it The production budget felt much bigger than season one for me. I I I. Love that. This was fifty four minutes where most of the season one episode where much shorter I think like most of them are closer to the thirty minutes. I. Guess. So. It was just it was so epic. So Good I. Guess My only negative that I want to say is I th I. Wish I had more of a role in this. Upset he was kind of like. The site I I mean I guess he's always sidekick, but he really didn't have much to do. So but I was really impressed with Jon favreau in what he was able to accomplish here. This is the first time you know he's obviously the creator of the show. He's a writer of the show, but this is the producer, but this is the first time he directed an episode. So Brian, what what are your brief thoughts? So I really loved the cinematic feel of it and it felt very George Lucas Very Spielberg and I'm sure we'll talk about that. Later. But I I'll be honest like I. Sort of as excited I was for what I saw at the ending I was also dismayed And it Kinda left me with like a bittersweet feeling because I've really enjoyed. BOBA FETT being dead. And getting. It's kind of like the feeling that a lot of people had with thinking ray was a nobody and then. J. j.j Abrams comes along. Well I don't I mean like I there was easier for me to swallow like I. Really. You only had years of that right? Like only two years of like thinking about that was the reality. Yeah, we've had a lot longer to to feel that Boba Fett was dead, but I really am appreciative of the fact that they worked in all of the stuff that Chuck Wendy get created around the armor and Cobb Vance to meet the elephants character that really. The that that has been the story for a long time and if they are incorporating that, I'm still not I. Don't know maybe maybe people know other things that I, don't but I'm still holding hope that it's not actually Boba Fett and it's some other random clone but I know that that's a long shot. Yeah. We'll get to that later. Do you have anything else to say in your brief thoughts? Just, it was fun. It was really fun and I haven't had that fun sitting. Had that much fun sitting down and watching something like this in a long time probably since last season well, Nelson's clone wars. Yeah Brad what are your thoughts on the by the way? Are we call this like to exit one or is this chapter nine like they're calling a chapter nine? I mean we'd be calling it both. Okay. Okay. What did you think of Chapter Nine? I realized I ought to fund with I'm I feel like I, wish that maybe it wasn't quite as long because even though it was a good episode I I felt a lot better when the episodes were between like thirty in forty minutes it just makes it feel a little bit breezy. especially since you know even though this season premiere did have some interesting new details to reveal. It felt more like an episode that was from like the middle of a season as opposed to season Premiere only because I didn't feel like that. There was much advancement as far as like the over. Arching plot you know it's like it's it's just a basic. It's like. Well, guess I'm taking this kid back to where you know to his people and you know, and here's another adventure of the week scenario and granted that's. The. Like I said there are big reveals I i. always like. I feel like season premieres should have you know something a little bit bigger and granted you know the whole idea of trying to take down a crate dragon is a big thing. I mean that's that's a big impressive effect that you're not likely to get in an average middle episode even a man to Laura and you know so that was a big deal but I don't know I don't want to say that disappointed because I never bored I still have a lot of fun with it but I guess I was just expecting a little bit more of an advancement with the the serial aspect of the story. That was my main complaint about season one was it was a lot of like. You know mission adventure of the week and it wasn't a lot of like there isn't really much of a overall like cereal plot of the show yet but I'm hoping that kicks into gear the season. What are you guys yet because I don't I don't mind the adventure of the week format necessarily but I just wish that the progress on the overarching stereo part of it was a little bit more media gas in each episode especially since these are very short seasons. You know it's interesting that it kind of depends on the scale you're looking at it from to right like in terms of the mandatory and in his story with seeking out man delorean's to return the asset to its people whether those are Djeddai or other creatures of its kind. It doesn't. It doesn't move the ball forward very much at all but when you pull back and look at the star. Wars universe. What it does with Craig Dragons in Tuscan raiders tattooing and Boba Fett absolutely does move that ball forward. So it's interesting to watch them balance between both those masters that they have to. Work for. I think that's fair. But I but I also think the progress of those balls in question is like I mean, how much? How much deeper are we into star wars lower by spending some extra time with Tuscan raiders in a crate dragon like it's not necessarily hugely revealing stuff that like provides a lot more depth into the Star Wars universe. It's more interesting details of stuff that we were already familiar with. Okay guys we we've got nine minutes which serve ref- reactions. Get into this.

"jon favreau" Discussed on Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes
"Shade on twitter. But he just wrote this piece. It was like Bernie. Sanders would be a disaster. And it's not like the argument. You could make an argument. That says here's an argument. Grounded the data for some weaknesses Bernie. Sanders would have as a general election candidate right legit and I think you can write a good version of that for basically every Deborah Sir Derek jeter candidate but the idea that like anyone fucking nose with any shorty. He's just matting to me. And it's across the spectrum it's like everyone's been rotted with pundit brain even the most radical people that I follow on. Twitter are talking about it in these like ridiculous people use cliches about like electability ability. And it's like I just want to be like no one knows you knows no and I'll tell you why it does. It scares me and I. It scared me after these focus groups is how many people so you know. I asked WHO's definitely voting for Donald Trump and I only got one or two hands per focus group and then I would say who's definitely voting for the Democratic nominee and and I only got a couple more hands so that's a bunch of people who are either waiting to see who the Democratic nominee is or in the case of the Florida group might not vote although most of them said they were going to try to in two thousand twenty so every abilities bullshit. But it's like there's a whole group of people that told me it actually depends on who the nominee sissy whether they're going to vote for Donald Trump or not right but what you're right that the measuring is incredibly so the problem with that is if you take it one step forward. It's like if there's ten people in the room and like there's two of them say definitely and there's eight it might not be the same candidate for the eight. Well that one might get three when Mike at Three one like a two and like God knows what will magic insight you would have to have. And I I I. I saw it unfold because in the Phoenix Group. The Pundit Group They Romney Clinton does the Romney voters and they all talked about. Why is the Democratic Credit Party moving so far to the likely one guy said to me? He's like look. I'm a former Republican. I Hate Donald Trump. I just want to vote for a normal Democrat and the Democratic Party. Hardy has put up Joe Biden. WHO's way too old and doesn't seem like he used to seem when he was in the Obama White House interesting and then to socialists in Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren? Is there anyone else in that group. Oddly was the only group that had heard of people to judge of course And they've kind of like someone repeat and stuff like that and I don't know if faced with Donald trump versus Bernie sanders what those Arizona voters do. Yeah but then you go up to Milwaukee and a couple of people in that group were the trump voters. s- told me that in in sixteen they voted for Bernie. Mary and they like Bernie in what they don't like is politicians who seem like they've been in Washington forever and at the same and for those people I'm like I actually actually could see Bernie being a stronger candidate than Biden in this group. But I don't know how to measure the different numbers that's my point. My point is like you can write the there are different parts of the coalition that I think different nominees would activate and repel. Yeah it bothers me that we have not. We've come to a point. The process where there's not a nominee who can obviously appeal to all of these groups. I will say yes although I mean everyone has weaknesses and strengths right. But I do as we're narrowing down. Oh God part of that also was just like the way politics works. I mean look I I was having this conversation with my my brother who works in. I think you know. He's visit Obama Guy and worked in politics. Working Politics is whole adult life. I'm like look I can make confident pronouncements on certain things like if you were running for Congress in the upper west side as a strong anti Zionist Ziona supporter of like. I think you'd have some stability. There are certain things like if you were running to be senator from Wyoming on a reparations for African Americans platform like I. Don't I think that would probably not be great. Like they're certainly at the edges of the Bell Curve Right. There are some things where it's like. I don't think that's going to help you. But but once you get into the place that I feel like we're in where you're talking about these sort of different trade offs like the Tucson suburbs versus the white working class us of Wisconsin. It's just to me. It just seems like the level of analysis needed to make some kind of cogent sophisticated prediction of the trade offs. Offs is not really in anyone's capacity. So no one should be voting on it. Yeah I mean I do think I I never wanNA throw it out as a consideration because the other thing to keep in mind. That is a big part of what matters here. In general is the candidate their message how they frame everything right like Bernie Sanders wins the nomination and says you know now. I'm the Democratic Socialist leader of America. And that's why I'm running in. It's going to be a campaign about big government ideology and stuff like that. I think he's going to have a pretty tough time. Right Bernie Sanders wins the nomination in and runs as the independent from Vermont. Whose wants to expand social security and fights social security taking on corruption establishment and both parties in Washington for a long time suddenly? So you're like Oh that's a message yet. I and same thing with Joe Biden right like if you know. Joe Biden has a general election message. That could work Warren to warrant to. I mean what I just said. For Bernie's earnings message is actually something that weren't do quite well. Yeah but I think the danger is thinking because really doesn't matter at all we should all just like say whatever we want to say and not try to persuade. No I totally agree. You're doing but no I'm just too because there's this spectrum. Some people were just like refused to concede that there's any distance between like what ones policy commitments are or substantive vision of what a America do and like the politics of it like there's no oh difference just like that's just not true the way work anywhere anytime in any society anywhere like like. Hey take it from us. We ran ran a black guy named Barack Hussein Obama a couple years out of the Illinois State Senate in everyone points to that and says well Obama won so anything can happen but it wasn't like like that was hard chose his messages very carefully. He chose his policies very carefully. He chose how he presented himself to the country very carefully. Like it wasn't a very easy thing to D- yeah and there's also a certain amount of like I think part of it too with Obama I mean Barack Obama's very good at projecting the image that was unifying. Let a lot of different people. See what they wanted to see him and part of being a good politician doing that right because you know if you need seventy million alien votes those seventy million people don't all agree with each other in fact hosts at that they don't they have lots of things so you're trying. I like your kind of running. It's not a con but you're you're a good politician is trying to get as many people as possible to think that they agree with that person. It's insane that we're having this conversation right now because it seems like the most basic rule of politics and yet it feels like watching the conversation. Unfold that a lot of people have forgotten the necessity of persuasion as the cornerstone of politics. Right because I took apart. Because we're like demographics are destiny and where polarized country and so what we you know elections are more of a census than they are an actual election. And whoever you are in your identity that just dictates how you're GonNa vote and that's it so we might as we'll just get to the election and that right and that's not the case right. I mean it's the problem with that I think is that it's it's running together two different things. That's as as a generalization that's pretty descriptively accurate but elections are one of the margins right. So if that's true gets you. It gets you most of the way right. So that's true of ninety. Out of one hundred people in some cohort. The election is one in the last ten. That's that's where like all this stuff matters a tremendous amount. So it's like when you're describing American politics all all of those sort of gross generalizations. They're always oversimplified but they really are true about polarization it about demographics in geography. It's crazy the density. Divide all all that stuff. It's all true. It's just that operationalizing it to win. An election is a very different thing because the people that are definitely with you because of all these things like. That's it's not where you win the election. Well and their response to that is usually. Why do we have to care about these? These swing voters. Why can't we just like? Let's just like register more people in turn up more people like and you should do that too but the Miami grew the drop off odors. Reminded me that it's like those people were not just waiting for someone to come along and say. Oh Oh I have this this big progressive agenda or any kind of policy agenda to get them to vote again. It's like very complicated right you know. They're like they're very cynical. It's GonNa take a lot outta work a drop off voters and this is the thing I said. Before but TROPPO voters in particular third party voters. People always think that conflict model the third party voter as like. Oh well if you did this you Kapila off these persons making a decision in this society in this political system to vote third party has by definition heterodox politics six that are complicated and oftentimes extremely interesting and might be quite beautiful and profound. But there's something going on there that's just going to not necessarily be you like some lever can be switched to bring them on board and look some of these people end up voting on things that would drive us all insane right just like the character of the person or something they like about whatever but ever liked hillary. There's a lot of that. The hopeful thing is when I was talking to activists in Florida talk to people who are organizing a Venezuelan community community in Miami that had swung like twenty points to the Republicans in two thousand eighteen and none of these people wanted to. It was tough getting these people to vote. They didn't in politics. There are very cynical and what they did is they started to get them to try to get into care about local issues and so there was a garbage heap in their community that was smelling really bad and they told them if you organize and you get a new city council you can do something about the garbage heap and they organize in there on that local issue and suddenly they're like while we had power. We did something locally and they're like well now you can actually change something in Tallahassee and now you can actually change something in Washington. DC and organizing a lot of cynical disappointed disaffected voters offers locally around. Local issues actually could be the solution and that's a much longer term issue. I mean part of the thing that I think we just always gloss over is like you know this is true in the UK you know. It's called Labor Party for reason it was a party that was literally built off the backs of the trade union movement. That's what it was. That's institutionally the left. Throughout most of the Western world. Since essentially the late nineteenth century you know married to attach to built on the infrastructure of labor movement. And it's not an accident that in two thousand ten those governors came in the Midwest and just like took the hammer to organized labor and that those estates have also gone more Republican that those two things are absolutely related. So what we end up looking for. We look for campaigns to do this kind of work that is the work of much longer term institutions used to be labored. And and you know it is a long term project. But when I talked to Stacey Abrams she talked about how they organized Georgia for her campaign and she said we would have our people go into communities where no one had gone for a long time. She's like I wouldn't even show up because then it's about me. Asking for vote is a politician. It would be about. What are your local issues? What do you care about? And we were on the ground like a year in advance talking to them about what issues they really cared about. And she's like we tried to make get so that it wasn't oh healthcare and jobs like the generic stuff but like was there a specific issue in your community that you really cared about and we organized around that and you build those relationships at the beginning inning of a campaign and then you don't show up a week before Election Day and say I'm going to go to a place where a lot of politicians go and ask for people s for people so so I do think that is one one way to do the work of organizing turning some of these people how much do you think the campaign matters right. So there's like there's demographics and those trends are real. They're real and they're driving a lot of stuff. Then there's kind of like organizing and then there's like the campaign the message. How much do you think that matters back to our conversation about how you know? Ninety percent of it is baked but the ten percent. That isn't baked. The campaign matters an enormous amount. And so I do think it matters on the margins but those margins are everything and I think we talked about the campaign. There's a couple of different aspects to that. There is where you decide to compete where it used decide to organize where you put your campaigns resources and then of course the candidate the candidate story who the candidate is and I do think because so many people on a lot of these voters I talked to were like this have divorced the issues. They care about from politics politics right. Because they haven't seen politics made a difference in their make a difference in their lives. They judge candidates and their vote. Choice largely by the person's character character and part of what you see with trump is trump has not delivered a lot but some of them give him credit just for fighting because they think no one has delivered in a while but he's fighting my fight and so then it becomes very important for the Democratic candidate to be someone who saying I'm fighting your fight at..

"Two-term president with no worry that he'll be kicked out of office. Yes he'll do anything. Yeah Anything Jon. Favreau is the host of the Wilderness which is out with a new season. And he's from Pod Save America thanks. Thanks for having me go. Donald trump trump is. He will tell you a critic an opponent of war but he's also a huge fan of war crimes as he tells us in so many ways from his advocacy of torture to his repeated threats to attack Iranian cultural sites to his advocacy of killing the wives and children of Isis fighters. But we're fighting a very politically correct war with the terrorists. You have to take out their families when you get these terrorists. You have to take out their families that from Fox and friends and war criminals so it shouldn't be a surprise given the opportunity both back a horrific weapon that the world has shunned and also to stick it to the Obama Administration. Trump would pretty much trip over himself. Detonating that tripwire. Yup We're bringing back land minds secretary of Defense Mark Esper- made the announcement at a Pentagon briefing. I'll just say this much Landmines or one of very many other important tools. What's that our commanders have available to them on the battlefield to Shape the battlefield and to protect our forces At the end of the day we WANNA make sure that we have have all the tools in our tool kit that are legally available and effective to ensure our success and to ensure the protection of our soldiers. Sailors sailors airmen marines. I have a hammer in my toolkit that hammer attacks now's have a saw in my toolkit that tax would some people actually have explosives in in their toolkit that attacks rock but is done when you're done exploding I have nothing in my toolkit that I leave behind and years later it attacks. Children toolkit tool kit I have heard. The most gung-ho soldiers sailors airmen marines say they want body armor they want better guns they wanna B two Stealth fighter. I rarely here. We want landmines. If only I could put a munition in the ground which tears the legs off a small child or anyone else when stepping on landmines are a useful actually in the Korean Peninsula to dissuade the standing army of North Korea from moving south but once land mines are used they rendered ground deadly for years to come. It is an admission that there is no hope for that territory the only use of that land is henceforth to be a killing field. There are no theaters that we're engaged in other than the Korean Peninsula where that logic applies. We don't want to salt and then arm the earth in Iraq or even ring in say Helmand province to him the Taliban into Afghanistan. We don't want to concede that the land is lost. Land mines Are Y- ah are an important tool that our forces need to have available to them in order to ensure mission success and in order to reduce risk to forces that that said in everything we do. We also want to make sure that that These instruments in this case. Land mines Taken account both The safety of employment and and the safety two civilians and others after a conflict and I think that that policy the mark asper is talking about states that the operational use of land mines will require. They have a self deactivation. Or self destruct feature of course if you yourself are in the vicinity of a landmine that self destruct feature will also destruct instruct you the Pentagon actually has invested more than one hundred million dollars in the Gator land-mine replacement program which aims to produce a smart smart landmine. Sure people fear. They're smart speakers. Good luck with these smart landmines. Popular Mechanics describes the development of that system under the headline the. US Army is trying to design a civilian safe. Landmine sub had the service is trying to design a mind that doesn't kill or maim civilians but it may have created created entirely new weapon system. I guess this is what they mean when they say creative destruction the new system is that there will always be a human being in the loop monitoring via drone on the battlefield and essentially setting off the minds after say tanks have roll through the area tanks tanks rolled through. What is this World War? Two Point Oh well yes. A justification put forth for the new system. Is that the Russians and the Chinese could be threats and if they start behaving in the threatening manner well mine of course the safety and efficacy of land mines really of all weapon systems has been oversold in the past land. End Mines used in the first Gulf War. We're supposed to safely deactivate self-deactivate but many didn't and many more were duds they say the extreme heat in in Kuwait complicated their intended function. I guess that shouldn't be a problem. In Iraq has with so many initiatives of the trump administration. What would be a concerning policy? Even if it was undertaken by the most competent people in the world turns into a disquieting potentially disastrous undertaking the military. It is mostly competent. But they do love things that go boom. They don't Fred about costs and by costs. I mean costs dollars or costing the standing in the eyes of other nations. One hundred sixty of which have signed the anti-landmine treaty. The point of civilian oversight of the military terry is to have a commander in chief who is acting in the best interests of the country militarily diplomatically and ideally morally the trump administration all. You have is a reflexive antipathy for whatever Obama did an knee-jerk bellicosity that makes trusting their judgment. Impossible that's it for today show. Priscilla A- lobby is the gist associate producer. Sure she knows that the issue of land mines is quite a landmine and she wants to take a howitzer or a flame thrower to it. She was afraid it would all blow up in our face. Daniel schrader produces suggest. He's eating. lasagna the gist. The new land mines with human trigger is lucrative business for the weapons for that gets the contract.

No simple code can define who you are but now can help you. Search for whatever's next but the point is we now associate Google a product with an uplifting emotion even the trump ad that is to air during the Super Bowl does this Under president trump America is stronger safer and more prosperous than ever before that's associated with uplift the Bloomberg at dwells in sadness and doesn't really offer a solution Kalandria in camp will never hold her son again but it does associate the cause of fighting gun violence with Michael Bloomberg and yes clenching camp is a black woman from Texas. Texas has a lot of delegates. They vote Super Tuesday. And it's more or less it doesn't break. New Grounds is some amazing new political ad. But I do think it will stand out during the Super Bowl. It's true. The AD is no more insightful. And no more stirring and no more convincing convincing than a similar ad by any other candidate would be if that other candidate sat on a pile of fifty two billion dollars already spent two hundred seventy five million and ads and all the other candidates are going through the traditional route of meeting actual voters in the actual states. That actually vote early and I can could understand why it seems unfair to them to ignore the established path in favor of an aerial assault. But you see Bloomberg is buying vote with his factual message message that he has spent time effort and lots of money to become a very effective counterweight to the. NRA is unfair. That is a message that could and should connect with lots of voters even if they were only exposed to it because Bloomberg alone was able to put it in front of their eyes on the show. Today we've no impeachment. Update think you know what's going to happen anyway. The Pentagon announces its bringing an old weapon system. Back that it could be something of a landmine.

What John's been doing the last couple election cycles is a show called the Wilderness now in twenty eighteen he took the show which looked at all constituencies within the Democratic Party? They put the show out there. And guess what the Democrats won big am I saying there was a cause and effect. Maybe maybe if they had edited that interview with with Tom Perez a little differently currently there wouldn't have been a big democratic win based on that premise. Don't change what's working. The wilderness is out with a new series. What they do this time as they go region by region and and talk about how the Democrats can win the White House? Jon Favreau is here. Thanks for coming on John. That is such a better pitch than what I've been. I've been pitching the fact that this is key to. Why didn't think of that? Thank you. Let's talk about that as a matter question. You guys are activists and at least some commentators. Let's say you know something along. The lines of journalism is their attention. There is their attention when you put together a show and you want to be as informative as possible but you also have this goal and this goal isn't necessarily simply informing the audience. It's winning in election. You know it hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be when we sort of got into the business we're orphan about the fact that we're activists and you know what our biases are like. When we started this week we sort of looked at each other? And we're like everyone's GonNa know us as Obama people forever you know. So what are beliefs are you know what side of the aisle over brands like. But we'RE NOT GONNA able to hide that and pretend that we've become these nonpartisan reporters who just gonNa tell it like it is now but what we can do is promise. You know that we're going to give commentary that's based in fact that we're going to give you the analysis as we know that that we're gonNA be especially after two thousand sixteen humble in our analysis the primaries have been tough because we have all wanted to be a I'm not travel yet or at least transparent right and what we think so neutral is not like we're not gonNA take your neutral about Tulsi Gabbard right. I'm not I'm not neutral about Chelsea. That's an exception because I think she has I don't think she's in this for the right reasons. And I think that's fairly transparent but when we talk about all the other candidates we try to be honest about What strengths and weaknesses? We see as people who have been on campaigns before yes and I want to get to the wilderness. But since we're here let's talk about this year I had one critique and I want to give you great compliments if there is one critique it would be that you guys will weigh in and say rhetorically. This was successful zestful. That brundige did rhetorically. That was misstep that warranted. You'll save tactically smarter. Spend your money here. A misstep to spend your money honey there where I see you're weighing in is on the policy positions that are actually alive within the Democratic Party. Zeal skewer bad republican policy positions but if it is on a Medicare for all and Medicare for all who wanted. I think you'll mostly talk about how to communicate the different points of view. But I don't know which of those two choices any of you guys. Firmly believe is the right choice politically. I think we've done that policy by policy at times times. The problem is I could tell you like if we were to start the healthcare system over from scratch. I have real forget all politics aside. I have have real concerns about what the transition to a single payer system. Looks like from what we have right now and I guess all politics aside all Democratic Primary Marie politics aside but politics in the sense of you need sort of buy in from the public to do something. Once you're governing forget about elections right and and having gone through the affordable care act Not only passing the affordable care act which is very hard but the implementation of the affordable care act. which as you remember ever hit a few bumps it's really hard to move the giant system of government at all even in a small little direction? Let let alone something as big as that so then let me ask you. There's another part of this debate. Which is the overton window that some people and I believe Bernie I believe what he says? Not Because of some rebound effect of what he says he believes because he believes it but there are a lot of people who will least argue. Well it doesn't matter you have to talk about the way Warren and talking about it to get a movement. But here's a here's overrated to some extent. Here's a good example of that gets into the Wilderness. So I do four. And I didn't even mean to focus groups for the wilderness and did four different groups of voters in Arizona just outside Phoenix. I talked to Romney Clinton voters.
"jon favreau" Discussed on Larry Wilmore: Black on the Air
"So we were promoting it to an extent but we were not we were always one foot in one foot out the as we felt this concern. That like thank you yes. We should promote the recovery. But at the same time. We don't want to tell people everything's great when it's not which fast forward to today which is all I think. Think it's a danger for trump that We have not exploited as much yet like trump going out there saying this is the greatest economy ever more. People probably feel that now than they did when Obama was president. But I still think there's a bunch of people who don't feel that that he's at risk of pissing off. Yeah I I completely disagree with that. I think people like to hear good news. Even if it's not necessarily true the sunny skies better than gray skies your if people are GonNa vote and vote for sunny skies over gray skies all time because people don't politicians lying exaggerating awesome. Awesome Sherman. They do they really do. No one's GONNA penalize a politician forgiving sunny skies. WHO's not all true? It's interesting I really do. Believe that. You Know Wichita uh-huh which is why I was upset over. I like the fact that Obama always came across as the school administrator. Well now we're not there yet. You know got hard work to do. Stop it be a fucking politician promote yourself. There's times when it frustrated me whereas frustrate. Yes you're right but that's not the point. The point is not to right. The point is to lead. And we're we're having this discussion right and and we would have discussion later. It's like we're all pretty well off people right so if progress Kazan resigned says the. Everything's wonderful like yeah. We think it's wonderful to because it's an our live. No it's not about. It's not that everything's wonderful. It's what is the value. Are you that you're getting you know from this administration and assign you know. Assigning real point to that value let people feel with that value. Now you is. Don't let it seem like there hasn't been a value like any. I tried like I think a lot of the Obama administration like we. You you spend some time. I am on wanting your pilots talking about what Obama accomplish. You know you're the only Democrat. I hear say that I never hear anybody talking about the Obama Administration Ministration. Yeah none of these Democrats act like he didn't exist if any I remember they got in trouble in that first debate because they were like a ninety five percent approval rating. I has gotten like slamming and the most well. You hear this from the left to Bama didn't do enough mullet like it's such a insular you you know. BUBBLE FOR PEOPLE TO LOOK at every poll from nearby regrets. Love him have they forgotten about what politics is right. Yeah we're not talking about just the condition of things we're talking about politics. It's a dual edged sword. You yes there's thank you Obama that's the actual condition. Now be a fucking politician winsome. Well like you have to do both mighty on this is that I. I'm not blaming Obama. No I'm talking about the Democrats because that's your focus. Awesome now two guys. You have to politics this as well. I think people don't. It's not as important to people that you are a barometer on how things are going either good or bad right but that you are a fighter right. You're willing to say like right like if you can turn on the news to find out how things are going with the politicians to say I'm GonNa go make things better sunny skies. Here's how or guys in the sense that I have a hopeful optimistic for the future direct. And I'm going to lead us there absolutely uh and you don't hear that as much right I just I think I mean look on their face. It's it's yeah. It's happy warrior the debate. I WanNa see all of these candidates. Want at least one or all of them Be Happy Warriors here fight like lease smile. Yes Li like. I always like when I break it down in in silly comic terms. Like I'll say in my estimation like the like in in the most superficial way the best looking candidate usually wins the presidency. Yeah the funniest candidate twenty. Yes yes yes But the charismatic the more charismatic candidate usually use the present young wins the presidency. If you look back that usually works out like the the good looking. When I won't I'd say but I mean the the most charismatic when the one that connects with people Through like personal charisma tends to win out right time and time again which is very very interesting to me like when you look at like Obama two thousand eight if you had asked him one and this goes to this question this whole Warren Sanders thing which I talk about a tub show. Career Burns made the whole Republicans it's so ridiculous. It is but like but Jon favreau if we were having a private conversation. Two thousand seven seven and I asked Jesse John. Do you think a brother with the Middle Name Hussein could be the war heroes John McCain for president. What would you say we were pretty worried? You would say what Larry I used to be kind of black man beat this world has. This ain't no guess what John Farrell head back can't we of course they said under at those conditions. No I mean you can. That's a whole silly story because you can totally see how one conversation was interpreted two different ways by both of them. Because I feel like that's y'all's private conversation. Why are they being used for politics? When you know there's a sexist assist in the White House right you know that's why I think people are like? Oh Elizabeth warns campaign leaked. That like they're they are smart people over there in campaign there is no way way that anyone on that campaign at least in the tight circle campaign including the candidate thought it would be a wise idea to insert a conversation about sexism and whether she could Women could win the presidency. Twenty days out from the caucus now was someone who was close to that campaign or thought that they were close to the campaign. You have you know in a campaign you have shirt circle of people who all think that there are friends of the candidate and friends there. Were they out there telling that story and repeating it. Yeah probably that's what happened. Yeah what what do you how do Democrats. Brad's fine. The way to lead right now. You know like I look at the candidates. I can't even look at that debate and nobody stands out to me as who I feel I should get behind as leader. You know I could say what am ideas who espoused as ideas. Yeah that's one way to look at but to me that's not good enough mm-hmm because I've always said I hate making these type of predictions but it just feels like trump's GonNa win you know it's I think the way I will start by saying the debate formats are not great for this and But it's when you get to see it. Obama hated them wasn't great at them. Sure never was great. Them always hated them. He always was like these. Things aren't on the level. That's the whole point is they're not on the level. I have to play the game and it is the reason why Kennedy beat Nixon. That's right you know and I think that you have to. You have to be able to command the stage and sort of rise above both the tit for tat with other candidates and and the policy details That are being asked about right. Because the the debate moderators are going to try to drag you down right exact- that's their their. Their goal is to make news and you make news by getting candidates and fights with each other and You know trying to have them say something that makes them too far to the left or controversial or so that's their giant them in a car or or create these artificial fates right and so they want you to talk about all these details on and your job on stage is to reframe the question Shen and answer what you want to answer in speak in value statements. Share right like I and I think you don't. You didn't see that as much last debate. So you start a little bit in some of the closing statement which they had prepared ahead of time share right like I think Joe Biden sort of got there at the end with warranted Bernie. Didn't I mean they all sort of got there at the end and but in the middle of the debate is you have to be able to stand out. Yeah I not just speaking about specific issues but look. There's you speak about the elephant in the room right. There's something deeply wrong in the country right now because Donald trump is our president. And if you're not speaking to that to like what is at stake in this election and what is wrong with our democracy right now then. I think you're sort of missing the big picture right now saying that. There's something wrong is I. Think focusing on trump. Probably right where you gotta you gotTa make turn to. Yes because he continued to something something that people wanted. You know that we're seeking and that's also like why did we. Why did they not look to us for that thing that they want Yana? Which comes back to the Wilderness? You know this is the what are the things that you felt. You've learned in terms of what people want in this election right now have. Have you heard some of those things. Yeah we're we're kind of still disenchanted with the biggest. I don't know if it was a surprise but what came through most of talking to and look I talked to four different groups of voters right. So you hear people talking to swing anglers. And you're like they're all the Obama trump orders right or they're all these like white guys in the Midwest. I wanted to make sure that I found different groups. Voters talk to so I told you about the Milwaukee voters in Arizona. I talked to a group of voters who had voted for Mitt Romney and then in sixteen decided trump's crazy I'm voting for Hillary Clinton so these are former Republicans the complete opposite these as people were much more engaged. Sounded a little bit more like pundits like you know like they were watching morning joe every day you know. So they're they're you know all the parties moving too far to the left. I need a more moderate like they would say that kind of stuff and then in Miami. It was a very interesting group. I talked to people who voted for Obama in twelve and then decided to sit at home or vote third party and sixteen and it was majority black and Latino voters and you know all three and then in in Pennsylvania I talked not just disaffected. Democrats Democrat don't watch the news that much but they all four. Those groups of voters actually had similar complaints in similar hopes and the complaints. AINS were no one is looking out for me. Politics seems like a joke. The media seems like a joke. I don't hear us the media anymore. I don't trust politicians anymore. It's a game uh-huh and you know people call these some of these voters like low information voters and they say what's wrong with them trump's president don't they understand the threat to the country right now I can't they've oh well you. There's this woman that talked me in Philadelphia. She this young African American woman and she was like look. I've spent most of my life trying to figure out how to raise my child. Who has autism is an and I? I spent most of my time working and raising my child and caring for him and I would love to understand what's going on in politics because I I think it's important for me. Healthcare's important issue for me but I can't understand what's going on. I turn on these debates. It's confusing I turn on the news. Everyone's yelling at each other. They treat everything everything like a game. Everything's like a joke and I I wish there was. I wish there was an understanding class for politics where I could actually know what the issues are know. What's at stake AAC? Because I don't have time to focus on that all the time and everywhere I went. That was sort of the sentiment that like people are leading really busy lives and they want to pay attention to politics but when they do it seems like fucking circus which it is and I think Democrats are going to. It's going to be really hard to reach these people uh-huh but Democrats are going to somehow need to break through like I think the Democrats a bigger challenge than Donald Trump is the cynicism that people feel about politics read read the Democratic Party and so part of what we have to do is persuade people that a good kind of politics is still possible and raise them to believe leave in the power of democracy which is really tough. But it's the argument. That trump's argument was I loaned can fix it. The right this is the. It's the argument of a demagogue Give me all your power. I will fight your fights I will fight your enemies. The people that are standing in your way. I'll take care of them. which is why the loyalists like him regardless and even if he doesn't succeed right because they know that he's part of the fight he just want him to fight and our and our.

"Everyone and welcome slash daily for Monday to Lie Twenty Ninth Two Thousand Nineteen on today's episode. We're GONNA talk about Disney's the Lion King Ben went to the set of this film or in a here all about it and we're GonNa hear an interview with with Director Jon Favreau this slash editor in chief Peter cerita giant by Casas slash home senior writer than Pearson. Hey what's going on not much. It's a Monday again and today we're talking about. The Lanqing set Ed visit which is unusual because usually talk about the visits leading up to the films released but we're talking about this after the film has hit theaters. Why is that yes so basically what happened was Disney decided that the stuff that we learned on asset visit I think and this sort of like may speculating? I didn't get an official answer on this but I think it's the stuff that we learn on the set. visit is <hes> a lot of technical aspects of like actually how John and his team made this movie and it seems to me as if Disney wanted to people to just experience the movie as a thing you know on its own without necessarily being impacted or clouded in any way by thinking about how it was made which like I can understand because this movie is so technically advanced. It totally makes sense if that was actually their mentality here yeah you don't WanNa be watching this movie thinking about how these lions are working so so when you visit visited the set of the Lion King they flew out to Africa..

Dissecting the 2019 Version of 'The Lion King'
"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there
Film Critics Have Mixed Reviews Of "The Lion King"
"To this and the R. says the new line king remake is more like creative dead and then circle of life the rear says we're debating the lying king in twenty nineteen why and then deadlines as The Lion King feels like the love tonight previews shows ringing up twenty two million to twenty five million us it's interesting is this whole story of The Lion King Jon Favreau is the director of this one the budget was two hundred and fifty million dollars the music was harms America who put it together and we'll see where who's a little village a lot of a lot of people are trashing and other people are saying it's not that bad is because once again do you know the whole remake thing how many times you do it so Seth Rogan isn't it Veon say isn't it Donald Glover and some other names I think that you would probably recognize as well and we'll see how it does its P. G. from adventure one hour fifty eight minutes if you have kids the probably the lying king doesn't matter they'll go and see that and they'll probably love it
Disney, Nala Donald Glover And James Earl Jones discussed on Bald Movies
"Latest live action cash grab the Lion King directed by Jon Favreau and you know I never would have guessed that the man who breathed life into a multi billion dollar franchise but taking a third tier marvel property like iron man and taking passion for source material I I never thought that he you would brought that same passion to the Lion King and you know what I was right because in my opinion this is like the most of all the pointless Disney remakes this is the most pointless and the one that comes off the shabby shabby as compared to its source material Jim. What did you think and maybe talk about your personal relationship with the Lion King of any so I think the Jon Favreau had quite the passion for the source material because he just recycled it and not in like the way where you I don't know take something you have? It's old fashioned into something new. That's useful in a different way. This was the lion king like this is the most Lion King Lion King movie <hes> outside outside of the Lion King I mean the thing is is is the lion king. Only all of the animals were injected. The Boat Docks Yeah Animation <hes> that's. That's the only thing that was different about this movie in any way right. There's one hint of new song none of the plot points or any different than the lion king you remember from ninety four. It's all the same it's just a it's just a cross aboard worse version yeah and completely like you said unnecessary. I think this is like the thing I liked about. Aladdin is Kinda took it a direction and modernized it updated five the problem. The parts were little creaky and little stale where we've moved on as a society they've kind of you know propped it up and they didn't try to like out Robin Williams Robin Williams on the genie whereas this it's like. I don't understand how the animation tests came back for. These animals father wasn't like okay we gotta ditched his documentary approach and have these lions smile. Give him some fucking eyebrows house allow on the show some gene grief and rage because we know I've seen the lion king many many many many times and there's a couple of scenes where you're you're geared up to anticipate and it's exactly. The same lines exactly the same framing except for Simba's faces a grim frozen mask that is capable of showing anything other than way honestly my house cats more expressive. I that's the thing that really really surprised me and I saw a listen problems with that in like some of the trailers I saw but like I don't know I mean it's this isn't a bad film in fact honestly the first five minutes. I actually started thinking well. Maybe I'm wrong because it gave me the exact same goosebumps that intro of the Classic Lion King Circle Life Yeah <hes> but even then it's like there's a couple of parts or like you know like there's a couple of things that you you know you can do in animation like when you blink and step forward and sun you can have a baby draft. Blankets is in this. I mean if they did that with his baby. Draft who the fuck knows because baby drafts don't blink in the sun it turns out it's almost it felt like one of those Old Walt Disney movies like <hes> <hes> what is the journey home or whatever where the actually take a real poppy in a real cat kitten and or they have like little bound very tightly homered ban yeah they make a movie around around like their natural expressions and stuff <hes> but there's just I don't know I mean I didn't really pay any attention to the casting like I didn't know anybody <hes> and there's <hes> great great cat like you know the Simba Nala Donald Glover beyond say knowles stats a fucking dynamite combination like John Oliver as the Domo's as zoo is pretty inspired casting the return of James Earl Jones James Jones. You can't do better than that. I thought that <hes> Billy Eichner as to Moan was really good eye Eric Andre I know seth th- Rogan is Okay Yeah Eric Andrea one of the hyenas I I mean I said it's just I mean we can talk about it the scene by scene point by point and the trailer earn the spoiler section like do I want to on this one because if you've seen the Lion King you've seen the entirety of this movie. It's just like they changed a damn thing. No they range all all the life yeah. Apparently the animators didn't get to note that the scene. Can you feel the love tonight actually takes place at night not at noon just many many references to it being evening and being nights and then it. Blend smoothly into another night scenes really pivotal and what the fuck what the fuck why are they why are they having animated these lions in broad daylight. I don't know because you can. They're more expressive in the day. I don't ever more expressive in the day. That's the only thing I think of is the other thing is speaking of that. I defy you to tell any of those lionesses apart <hes> yeah lights off in the cartoon version. There are subtle variations in color facial expression oppression. I mean they're all kind of unique individuals. At least you know the Nairobi and Nala and the ones actually have speaking roles this like they literally all look the same and when Simba's fighting scarred there's many time I lost track of WHO Simba who was scar and they found it hilarious that these battles are so bloodless. I don't know how you get a name like scar. If nothing can cut your skin I know 'cause like it'd be like it's cannon that Mu Fossa awesome fucked him up the part of his ear off and really hideously scarred him so but yeah you can't do that when <hes> although to realistic you can't do I was kind of put off by the mature subject matter. They're they're. They're saying the F. A. R._T.. Word heard they are in case. Let that slide through yeah yeah really risk and is this P._G.. I don't know it probably is it wouldn't be stupid like whatever the whatever the original was here. It's the same because it is is the same so so. Maybe I'm a little harness movie but I actually this was the very first Walt Disney animated movie I ever saw because I my mom was a religious nut job the type of religion I mean there's lots of different ways to be a religious just not job as a parent but <hes> her particular nutjob Orie was magic anything magic and I'll add in allow <hes> sleeping beauty no little rain when the fucking sea he which get Outta here those legs are mad. I remember the look my sister and I gave each other when Rafiki started doing medicine Monkey Shit and we're like Oh God and my mom's is started twitching like us a spiritism. Does a spiritism like she's please do not storm out of that we we. We begged her to take her come on the line game. There's no magic there's no warlock in this fucking monkey starts. Doing you know the the magic adjacent shit he starts doing like some kind of weird monkey and melon based divination a nation he starts doing martial arts karate at the end which is the other kind of spiritism adjacent but it was near and dear to my heart because I that's the very first and I remember just like just like being just completely amazed at the opening act. And really moved when Fossa dies and like also we had that movie I was the only Disney animated movie for a long long time that we had on V._H._S. and my brother and sister and I kind of wore it out over the course of a summer so I'd fucking love this the Super N._S.. Lion King Okay. I don't think I ever made it past the third level because it's freakishly hard but there's a lot I have a lot of affection for this source material and Dan I just to me they should have cleaned it up that those prints as shiny as they could make him they should've completely redone to sound and just re released it because this is just you know Lion King's Tinton movie. This is like six attitude execution of that movie. This is a high school musical version of the Broadway version of the Lion King. I could see that yeah. I didn't find it offensive. I found that it was in in maybe everything except for the expressive -ness of the characters was just as effective as the original was but yeah it was entirely unnecessary. This is a fairly obvious cash crap. I didn't didn't feel that way coming out of Aladdin. I know a lot of people didn't feel that way coming out of beauty and the beast and you know the the Dumbo did People Watch Dumbo. Nobody watched dumbo right everywhere. I heard it was pretty fucking shitty. Yeah I didn't see it. I didn't either her because I heard it was pretty shitty and guess what you've got Milan coming down the pike. I don't I've never seen Milan. I mean it's a fine. It's it's it's probably one of the lesser of the new golden age of Disney like it's kind of their into Pocahontas level level where it's like animation still amazing songs that nearly as catchy core concept not as solid and I've heard that they're actually a skewing the songs more or less in Milan and just like a straight like a straight drama weird. I could be wrong on that but I just. I don't know I it. It's it's not it's so cynical. I said cash grab because it's it's not it's not just a blatant redundant cash grab. It's just a pace. These does relentless Klis pace that they're that they're doing them into. I don't understand why we need. Five remakes of Disney live action Disney movies in a single year and I don't even know if it might be more than that like. I don't know if they've got. They're going to sneak something out. Pass them along before Christmas. I don't know I don't know they just cast a little mermaid. I I don't know how far that's that that's behind but who's playing Sebastian. I don't know okay. That's my biggest question about that movie. Maybe Ahmed Best Okay Yeah sure thanks Yeah Sebastian yeah he so Whoopi Whoopi in the under the sea yeah love song so I got some more stuff to say 'cause I got. I actually Kinda WanNa actually KINDA WANNA break it down so you might say because he's keep on saying that it's shot for shot for Lion King and that's my biggest problem is is that I don't think it is. I think they're I mean they try not shot but beat for beat. Story is one hundred percent every bit of the staging is is noticeably inferior and worse than than the than the the original and some of the things that like what they did to be prepared is a God damn criminal travesty. That's one of my favorite songs from the Lion King and I've never seen a more dispirited parroted punting of a musical number then than I have. I don't know Jimmy Nicholson who I considered. The foremost expert on Disney films on the Internet suggested that there's also a muted quality due to vocal performances like everything everyone's kind of like instead of like even James Earl Jones instead of just like because I remember I I can I can hear in my head exactly how he says. Nobody messes is with the year old band or I can. I can hear like they. They just didn't quite nail it and her theory is they had to have all the actor scale back because if they were as a motive as the original lion king it would look wildly out of place with the animation style and it's like the one thing that you could have gone ten for ten and let like Donald Glover and beyond say and James Will Jones uncork and actually you know she would tell Chew Hotel Jia for <hes> who I think is an amazing actor. He got the world's most laid back quiet unassuming scar and it's just a shame because he's trying to follow giant. Jeremy Irons plays one of the the all time Great Disney villain voices and it just. I don't know

Spider-Man: Homecoming | Marvel Month
"Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big picture a conversation show at least for the time being about the marvel cinematic universe. I am joined today by your friendly neighborhood, film critic and ringer contributor, Adam name and Adam Hello, how are you? Hey, how're you doing Adam? You are friendly and neighborly because we are here to talk about a movie called Spiderman colon homecoming. This is a latter stages. MC you entrant and unlikely one largely because for the longest time Spiderman was just not a part of the new and when this movie happened. It was a surprise to many in the fact that he was integrated so effectively into this universe. Makes it kind of a fun movie to talk about because it fits into the big picture and a lot of the things we've been discussing throughout this marvel month, but it's also just a hell of a fund standalone movie when I reached out to you a couple of weeks ago about participating in this project. This is the movie you chose. And I thought that was so interesting, and you never told me why. So why do you want to talk about homecoming? I thought it'd be just really good and confusing to talk about homecoming in the shed. Oh of the other pop cultural product called homecoming true came out this week. I thought that'd be really fun. I thought we were talking about beyond say, no this is perfect for SEO. This is great. No. I mean, I I like talking about this film because I think it's a strong one. I wrote about it for the ringer when it came out and thought that everything you said about it sort of returning Spiderman to the intellectual property fold with something that it kind of allies itself in a very clever way, the whole movie is sort of almost about like Spiderman trying out for the marvel cinematic universe and trying out for the adventures and trying out for the audience, and it it has that self reflexive quality at it's not obnoxious. Like most of the time. It's quite clever. I sort of thought there was something about it. I mean, all the marvel movies even tell me what you think of this there. They have to have all these surface differences and all these surface, peculiarities nudity secrecy, but underneath they have to lock together like a puzzle or voltron like you can't really make one different. And so this one. Kind of has the friendly neighborhood surface on the outsider surface in the underdog surface. And I found that all like, very charming and pleasant, and then the fact that it really is just a piece of product that locks together to the rest of them in this case didn't bug me. The way that it may be bugs me with some of the other ones. Yeah. Even just revisiting it this week. I found myself surprised that should Tari alien technology was a significant part of this movie. Which is of course, if int- part of this MC, you and everything that we've been talking about because the first time I saw it. I felt like I could have been any old alien technology could have been from an Amblin movie in nineteen eighty seven. You know what I mean? Yeah. And you know, you don't really actually need Robert Downey junior there. There's pleasure in having Tony stark there, and Jon Favreau, kind of babysitting him, and, you know, the the the parallels that has the first ironman movie because it becomes a very different kind of origin story. Like thank God. It's not a Spiderman origin like he's bit by spider. And there's and there's all that stuff. But it. About him like becoming an official superhero. Right. And there's all kinds of scenes that parallel the way that same story is told in ironman right up to the ending being kind of a parody of iron man announcing himself to the world, whereas, you know, here Peter chooses not to you don't need all that stuff. But and then the Qatari technology. You're right. It could be anything. But I like movie that simultaneously stands alone. And has these bits of connected to the larger story, and I find the way it connects larger story in some ways really witty like the cell phone footage of the big civil war fight. Yes. That's really funny. It's clever. I

They're not gonna they're not they have no concrete plans to make another movie after episode Nile. They are making three to seven television series. But does that include like, the the potential Boba fat and those ones as well? Right. I think the thing is way back Bernard since they're making the Mandal oriented areas, which is a different Boba fett is is Amanda Lorient. So there's a different Mandal orien-. So he looks like Boba fett, but it's a different guy. That'll be a TV show that Jon Favreau is producing. I did see that. Maybe it was out of context. But Mark Hamill said something about he feels that there's a little bit of Star Wars burnout. Yeah. Did he say I agree with them? I I think that's what hurts solo more than anything. Is that people were just like I enjoyed solo to me too. But it was like too much Star Wars. You robbed us all of the of the opportunity to be excited about that. Because it was four months after a really humongous crazy Star Wars movie that that took a long time for people to process and digest allegory with all that I'll agree with that. I'll outgrew with Mark Hamill lentil, tell him to his face if I ever made them. No he lives on that island. Now, always out there a bunch of ports. I'll shake his hand. Then if I ever meet him.

Well, I thought listen I like I thought it was a good episode. I thought there are a lot of good segments. Rachel Brosnahan felt like she was there to be professional and do whatever was necessary and she didn't break, and she was funny and she delivered. What was written for her? And sometimes it was really good. And then of course, sometimes it wasn't. I really liked the cold open.

"Netflix will not be picking up the option for season three of iron fist, but you will still see Danny rand crossover in some of the others and actually a defenders to is not off the table. So we will see Danny ran and possibly Jessica Jones. Another defenders. Probably Luke cage. They work so well together, and maybe we'll get a heroes for hire spin off, but there will be no more immortal iron fist solo series. I'm the. Protect your line. Yes. Danny, we know who you are. The aero verse has huge crossovers every fall. This fall, no, no different. We are going to be introduced to the city of Gotham and a new character to the aero verse bat woman, they cast ruby rose to be bat woman, and they've shown some costume pictures of her and looks like they took them straight out of the comic book. This is right off the pages of DC. Ruby rose has the look. She has the acting chops the arrow verse. All those shows are crazy popular. I'm loving that they're expanding, especially with Gotham going away. CW is expanding their CW superhero universe, so might not be long before we start seeing some more of these guys in their own series. DND players. If you remember a while back, they added a new class. Old spice came up with the gentlem-. In class based off of their commercial character? Well, not to be outdone. They've made another new class. Not old spice is just made up by the fans called the murder Hobo class. If you've ever played DND, you know, the murder hobos are the players who just want to maim kill rape, torture for no reason whatsoever. Just do it in cause chaos. They have made their own class with class defining rules. Now you can actually download this from DM guild, which is it's probably not going to be considered canon for DND, but being on DM guild is probably the next best thing. If you're DM is allowing it, you might try this murder Hobo class. If that's not for you, get the old spice gentlemen class there I've played the gentlemen class. It's pretty cool. You should try it out, murder Hobo class, not into that type of character. A lot of people are, but, hey. Now you've got rules for it by now.

They were made in jest, but they were taken, I guess, by Disney's seriously. They didn't like the content a lot of dark humor that they didn't think was funny. So they've, they fired him well, as soon as they did that, all the other companies were lined up at his door knocking and the one he answered for was DC. The DC universe is going to have James Gunn attached to the new suicide squad to movie. He's already proven. He can write group movies with guardians of the galaxy in just do a killer job. It hasn't been decided if he's going to direct suicide squad to yet. But just the fact that he's writing it is it's mind blowing. We're going to see probably the best suicide squad incarnation. You could think of Batiste day Batista's already said that he wants to come over. If James Gunn is directing it and play a character. I just I can't wait for this to see a movie be as popular or some of the marvel movies would be great. I would love to see James Gunn grab this and run with it and just do a whole series of DC movies. So congratulations, James Gunn. Congratulations. DC marvel. I hope the guy you've replacing with does just as well. Let's finish this up with some Star Wars. Let's start with the mandatory and show by John Fabbro. If he don't know already, the Disney play channel is picked up a big budget, Star Wars series that they're letting Jon Favreau writing direct. Jon Favreau has done an excellent job with all the other stuff. He's worked on from iron man, two zero through gemology all the way up to jungle book the live action one. Handing him the reins of this in him picking a character or a classic character. So I contacted MandA Laurean can't wait man in case you didn't know Django fit Boba fett are the main delorean's you're probably more familiar with or maybe some the ones from the clone war series.

"It's going to be interesting to see how Disney how Disney makes their play with this because and that was not a pun, but Disney play is it could be a Netflix killer. It could be a, they have enough horsepower enough IP in enough money to throw behind this that they have a legitimate chance. I'm gonna say it becoming the number two streaming service.

They have Jon Favreau live action, Star Wars series. They've got a Dumbo. I'm trying to remember the monsters Inc thing. They put in a bunch of the so I was wrong.

After Andy, so there's going to be new. I on high school musical, and there will be a quote, brand new, all new marvel series. Okay. So I dunno means both all that information. If let's say hypothetically, they cost exactly the same. Do you go DC or do you go Disney? I go Disney with a free trial of DC so I can watch all with a free enough trial to watch young Justice and maybe sometimes, yes, yes. So, yeah, I'm excited for young Justice than probably any Disney show ever. So my money's gonna go to DC.

"Yeah boardwalk empire but said on canto bite and sell ambling can't spiring father racer whatever those father fighting i'm not even sure who i would want it to be about but i think if they go kind of the more off the beaten path and make it about a bounty hunter something that'd be really cool and then you could fold in the legacy of the mandal orients boba fett and all that and get him and stop on tattoo lean or something like that i'm still waiting for shadows of the empire something shadows of the empire in the world which was a which was a video game from the nineties which i'm sure a lot of wasn't there there were tien book push in the nineties focused on this storyline multimedia through games comics never made it to screen in any way but i wanna see dash dr i wanna see the outrider yeah so more star wars from jon favreau good things now on another thing in the star wars front lord and miller chris lord and phil miller no phil lord and chris miller the one time director of solo until they were fired and replaced by john farrow howard my god there's time yet for you to be replaced jon favreau ron how it is your god him i god you're a cunningham might that's right anyways they are they did not challenge the directing credit given to ron howard so jim why you walk through what basically what that means is they could've fought it with the directors guild saying we did x amount of work we want to have shared credit the downside to that is it becomes very ugly very messy and a lot of determining who made what has to be basically brought up to an arbiter and a lot of that stuff becomes public and it's probably just at the end of the day not worth your while you could probably get like maybe a nice little departing gift if you will and be on your way and i think what that suggests is they just want to divorce themselves from this movie entirely.

"Untitled announced streaming service jon favreau is going to be producing it and we we've we have the first information about this tv series brad we know yes we heard a while back that jon favreau was going to be the writer and executive producer of a new live action star wars series but that was pretty much all that was an ounce at the time we had no indication as to what it would be about what the series might entail anything like that but john fabra was walking the red carpet last night on the solo star wars story premier and he was asked about his developing live action star wars series by noticed and while he didn't give away too many specific details he did give us some information that we didn't yet know before the biggest piece that he told us is that the show would take place seven years after the battle of indoor in return of the jedi which means it takes place quite a long time before the events of the force awakens there's roughly thirty years or so in between the and the force awakens so there's a couple of decades here that haven't happened leading up to the force awakens during the time of this series takes place in addition he said the series will feature all new characters so we're not looking at a series that focuses on any canon characters that we've met elsewhere in the star wars saga so far but that also doesn't rule out the possibility of seeing any of those character potentially pop up in small camel rose pano roles here and they're kind of similar to the way that we would see familiar hair just pop up on star wars rebels and then finally he mentioned that they would be using the same kind of technology that he used on the jungle book and the lion king during the production of the show what that's kind of interesting in and of itself because amb sounds like they'll be using a lot of visual effects to create the environments and characters in this movie was similar to the way that the jungle book and lion king or entirely shot on a sound stage on created with digital effects in post production that sounds like it would be really expensive so i assume that this is going to be a pretty high budget production since disney streaming service and we don't really have a game.
