The dissection table very soon on there And of course as always lots of podcast stuff is going on there as well so check that out and let's talk about do all right. Josh bell is with us today to talk about. Is it the biggest movie of the year dune. Do you think it will be like at the box office. Sure the box is in the public perception. No because there's marvel. Sean that really dwarfs everything. I guess that's true. Yeah so yeah. I think not well it certainly one of the biggest definitely. Yeah i mean this is one of the especially when it comes to like the delayed twenty twenty movies like and and this is the thing that like i i think it just weighs heavily over expectations of it and everything is that this is one of the big ones that was supposed come out last year and got delayed and here we are right well not only that but even before last year there was such a long long process of trying to get this made and yeah different filmmakers who might take it on and just the fan base that exists for these novels so years and years of people waiting for this movie and coming up with their own expectations of what it would be like so i should ask you then. Are you one of those fans. No i am not not that. I'm an antiphon. I have dune the first book Sitting on my bookshelf. I bought it at a used book. Sale maybe twenty years ago. And i should read this. I'm a sci-fi fan. I've read a lot of sci fi novels and this is a huge classic of the genre. And i thought something i should probably read every time i think maybe i'll read dune i'm like Maybe i won't watching this movie. It seems like a huge undertaking. Yeah i think so. I mean it's a very detailed. it's known for having big appendix of terms. And whatever and and i tend to shy away from those kinds of final holes and so one of the things i appreciated about. This movie is that. I felt like i understood everything in this world without having to consult an appendix or anything like that I felt like it was. It was streamlined. In a way that didn't feel like it was dumbed down but also made things understandable to me as someone who has not read the book and is not intimately familiar with every detail of this world. Yeah but also. I mean i know we disagree on whether this movie was actually good but i i should say actually i should get that out in the open here. I didn't get a chance to tell you this before. We got to this recording session. But i started rewatching it this morning. I didn't get to finish it. Okay it works a lot better the second time around. I still not going to like sit here and say that. I'm like a fan of it. I didn't love the second time around. But i definitely liked it more than that first time. All right well. I'm glad to hear that. Because i did like it and i liked it enough that i thought maybe i'll give it a try with the book. Maybe before comes out. I'll finally read this book now. You probably not what i said about the lord of the rings. I think we talked about this. When we our big lord of the rings yeah episode and yeah. That didn't that didn't really work out very well. Yeah it's it's too much work there. There's a lot things to watch and who has time. We'll have a lot of talk about throughout this conversation. I'm sure why don't we start getting some puzzle pieces here. What do you got for your first one. Well i'll start with the obvious because why not and that is dune. Yeah and to dunes. Really first of all david lynch's nineteen eighty-four version of dune and secondly khodorkovsky's dune the documentary about the version. That was not made by alejandro hausky and both of these are filmmakers. Who are these kind of crazy. Visionaries shore right and in both cases they were unsuccessful in bringing their sort of crazy visions to life. I mean in linda's case you can watch that film and see that clearly not everything that he was trying to do succeeded and he couldn't quite tackle this whole again. He does the whole book. And you've seen dune the version. You know that it's only half the book so don't work but i think villanova is someone who is. I'm sure a fan of these filmmakers and respects the boldness of their visions and even though he's not copying anything that they do or that they thought to do. I mean in the documentary. They show a lot of storyboards and concept imagery and stuff so you can really get a sense of what he was going for. I don't know that villanova's copying that stuff but he's definitely working in a tradition of these kind of big bold visions. And i think what makes this movie work. And what makes his scifi movies work is that he can combine that with this grounded. Serious dramatic sense that he's got that he's more than most filmmakers able to bridge these two elements whereas i think almost anyone else that they could have hired and there have been various people over the years who might have made. This movie are either on one. End of the spectrum like lynch and crazy out in the stratosphere or on the other end of the spectrum like peterberg who was at one point supposed to direct this film who is just this very like basic meat and potatoes. Kind of filmmaker. Yeah and villanova's is a good balance there. So i'm sure he looked at those films in in in some ways they may be influencing him just in the sense of not wanting to do what they do exactly and looking at that and saying okay. Lynch did it this way or ask. You was going to do it this way. So let me approach it differently. Yeah i think villanova is sometimes weird and unique is his films can be. they're also very crowd-pleasing. And i think that he definitely didn't want to go all the way in the direction of what lynch did with his dune which by the way i watched this week for the first time and i liked more than this but only because it's just so weird you know it's weird and fun whereas this dune Even though i'm liking it more on my second watch it still not fun at all. It's just so dry you.

"Like what is this. I mean that's that's another way that like you know traditional or stop motion effects You know bring out more creativity than just cgi because yeah you're right. The more recent stuff has been kind of the same kind of thing over and over again but back then those all seem so unique and different even if they were like similar characters and settings right yeah he had the most recent thing i saw was like a promotional video for a custom guitar then made adam jones. I don't know if you saw this. And it was accompanied by an instrumental that was essentially like a new tool song just with no vocals and nine minutes long or whatever and is just look like a screensaver. Not in a positive way. I'll still watch the long rumored by tool fans feature length Tool movie music thing which probably will never happened. I mean but you know. I could still dream for it. Yeah i watch that too i mean. Of course yeah. That sounds heard anything about that. Sounds cool thing that we all used to talk about in the early two thousands. But that's a long time ago so well. The finished puzzle for come. True includes a nightmare on elm street. Three dream warriors devs maniac possessor an antiviral inception the cell silent hill. It follows eternal sunshine of the spotless. Mind science of sleep on rails video games and tool music videos. So josh is there any any major things. We didn't quite get to well going through the pieces Well i just wanna give a shout out to a movie that i couldn't include because i haven't seen but i think has a lot of relevance which is rodney ashes film the nightmare documentary about Sleep paralysis than i think Sort of reenact that experience in a horror style and the shadow man figure in this movie is clearly a reference to the figure that people tend to see during sleep paralysis. That's not something that i've experienced personally. But that's like the common thing that people mention i have once and it was scary as hell. Yeah so again. I think maybe you don't wanna watch that movie. I don't know. And i haven't seen it. But i've read enough about it to know that that's got to be an influence on this. I would think so. Yeah the only other thing. I wanted to bring up and your film. History is better than mine so i don't know maybe maybe you saw the connection but any significance to the weekend at bernie's terminator posters. Would you say mean. Terminator is kind of see. Maybe a little clear sci-fi yeah. I mean i don't know i guess like i actually never seen weekend at bernie's which is an important part of any film history education. Of course. i'm sure it'll come up on awesome movie. You're at some point. Yeah i mean we have. The you know the climax of the movie where she's like sleepwalking and they have to guide her. And i suppose that's almost like carrying along bernie's corpse stretching their just correct the case josh. I think yeah. I think you did it. That is a perfect place to end this. Because we figured this movie out for sure. Okay well josh. Is there another movie you saw recently. You'd like to recommend to our listeners. Sure completely different. I'm going to recommend a movie that that i know you've seen and i think you're not really that into and most critics seemed to have not been into and i had sort of low expectations because of that but i really loved and that is french exit from as azel jacobs that is I mean i don't know as of when this comes out. Probably still just playing in theaters but We'll be available on vod. I imagine within the next few weeks. And it's i can understand why some people were not into it. It's kind of excessively quirky in some ways. But it just had this dry of certes sense of humor. That really really worked for me. Michelle pfeiffer is amazing in it as this sort of socialite. Nukes city socialite who discovers that her fortune has disappeared and she doesn't know how to live without lots and lots of money and event ends up. G moves to paris to stay in a friend's apartment along with her son played by lucas hedges. Who and they have this kind of unhealthily close relationship but it's this talking about whimsical about michelle. Gandara it's this actually quite whimsical witty comedy about their relationship and about this this woman sort of search for her identity with the lack of money and her husband who has had died. And it's got these funny magical realist touches. The husband has been reincarnated as their cats and just a lot of really entertaining supporting performances. And i mean i. I laughed and smiled and was captivated the whole way through so if people have seen reviews. They're not that enthused. I hope they'll give it another look again. It'll probably be on. Vod fairly soon. So french exit is peck. Yeah i like to. I think a lot. More than maybe i lead on and i'm almost tempted to rewatch it. And say hey. Let's do an episode on it. Because i know that you really loved it and i think maybe it deserves another shot from. I hope so. I mean from you and from anyone because like i said i you know as we have discussed whether it qualifies but for me this is my favorite movie of twenty twenty one so far it was not released in two thousand twenty except to critics like you and me who got. Yeah so it's at the top of list at the moment. Yeah nothing makes sense anymore. J world that's right. We sure are well josh. Why don't you tell people what you got going on. What do i got going on. Well i got awesome movie year in the thick of or maybe reaching the end depending on when this comes out of our season on the films of two thousand and three so.

"Talk the vigil okay. Josh bell is back with us on the podcast josh. How's it going man. It's going all right. How are you. I'm alright watching a ton of movies. As i know you are always including including this weird one. The vigil this is. This is something i found out about through you through your review and immediately spoke to me. Of course i do love. Jewish demons are. You are jewish demon. Maybe that's right. Thank you josh. I'm putting that as a poll quo. My next prided right. Where did you find out about. It was something that like a- did you know this was coming. Or is it something just kinda popped up out of nowhere. I mean it's a it's an ifc released. So i get you know press releases and she'll rules from their pr folks. So i knew that it was coming. I think it had played a number of festivals. Maybe even going all the way back to playing some person festivals. I think it was it was doing that circuit for a while. So i may or may not have heard about it before then but certainly when i saw it as an upcoming ifc release. It intrigued me and And i pitched the review and got the chance to write about it. Which was cool and i certainly also i'm interested in this whole jewish horror angle. Which is not a common thing but is a thing which will talk about more. There's so many horror movies now. It seems like every week. There's like you know so many horror movies that come out and so many deal with you know either you know possession or some form of religious iconography so like to get this jewish angle definitely at least makes it something interesting and different right. I mean and i yeah certainly i. I write about a ton of horror movies whether it's full reviews like this or in my little. Vod column that. i write And it seems like in this past year with people in the lockdown. And whatever. And i i don't know if it's The world is scary and people want to see that reflected in movies or they want to watch movies where the scary stuff ends. But certainly there have been a lot of horror movies. And but i think this one does kind of rise above with the way that it approaches the subject matter in this in this unique way even though it does also do a lot of very familiar horror. Movie things sure. Yeah and and that score gets very very loud at times as many horror movies do it does. And there's some some some jump moments or whatever and i didn't feel like they were cheap necessarily. I felt like they fit with. What the character that. You're you're in the perspective of this main character as he's in these circumstances but i can understand if you felt like this was too many basic horror movie things and not enough to set it apart. I think you didn't like this movie as much as i did. Oh no i. I did like it but maybe not as much as you did because yeah it does it does have a lot of those tropes in it but i i do very much appreciate when a horror movie can at least try to do something different. You know. it's this movie definitely does and We'll get into a lot of those differences as were going through this thing. Why don't we jump into puzzle pieces. What you for your first one. Well my first one is Sort of as we were just saying sort of the bad version of this movie called the possession from two thousand twelve. That is a completely forgettable. Generic horror movie. That i had to look up on wikipedia to remember. Virtually anything about. Even though i saw it in the theater But it also involves this jewish mysticism and jewish the as the source of its horror. And i remember watching it and thinking. This movie is really dumb but at the same time i appreciate that it's dumb. It's using a different source material to be tom. It involves it involves a book. Which is i think. The the sort of jewish demon or whatever that people are most aware of An an a box that Is a thing that contains this demon and of course the dumb characters. They buy the box at a garage sale and get some some. Not good stuff happens and cure. Ascetic is is the main star of it. And jeffrey dean. Morgan and i don't remember for sure. But i don't think the characters are even jewish. I think it's just their random people and they picked up. You know just like in a weird way like the exoticism of an older horror movie. Which were they would buy like a more. We're told them from africa or would have a demon in it and it would mess with them so it's not a good movie but i think it points to the way that you could do this poorly just kind of reach out and i don't know if the filmmakers behind that film or jewish at all verses This filmmaker who get someone who went to rabbinical school and he's got this very strong jewish background So i can't recommend it. But i think i i wonder if he maybe saw that movie or looked to that movie and thought okay. Here's a mainstream movie with some of these ideas and that is a way to think that maybe people will accept my movie. Yeah no absolutely. I don't remember if i ever actually saw that one. I probably did at some point. But i think it's interesting though just to speak to the the fact that the characters possibly weren't even jewish like it's funny that us jews like. I don't even think we know this dark. Like creepy side of judaism. Because we just don't really pay attention to that stuff. It seems like at least most of us. I think i mean maybe it's just because there's so many more horror movies about christian mythology. But i feel like the demonic side of christianity is a lot more prominent even an stream christians so i'm just looking and and and to be fair to the possession of the main characters. I don't think our jewish but they do eventually consult a rabbi played by modest yahoo of course okay these are things i didn't even remember but i'm just thinking we competed. How can you forgive modest. Yahoo i know that's up to him. I mean he's i mean obviously if they're like we need a jewish pop culture guy who you know. He seems like the right one to go to. I suppose

"All so. Josh bell is back with us again. Josh. how's it going. Oh not too bad. How about you. I'm doing great i am. I am entering the second month of two thousand twenty one with the same vigor. I had at the beginning of two thousand twenty which is not much bigger. No i was gonna say none right. Yeah i'm trying. I'm trump trying to wake up and get excited. I mean there are lots of good movies and and the reason i say aside from being true. Is that this movie. Were about to talk about invigorated me a little bit. Because i loved it so damn much all right. Yeah i liked it too and this was a movie that people kind of slept on. I guess a little mia did when it came out in theaters last year. I remember the week that it opened. I had heard nothing about it. I just saw the listings on fandango and on movie and i assumed it was some kind of a small no budget. Nothing production that We're getting suddenly opening in theaters. These days because theaters will take anything right and it is a small production but it's definitely not On that kind of scale that i was imagining it so it was was an unexpected delight. Yeah absolutely and i was looking forward to it for quite a while. I mean obviously. I hadn't heard about it either until it got that little theatrical run but then it's like unlike a and we were just talking about this before we started recording about saint maude but like a unlike a lot of movies where they get these little theatrical runs since pandemic but then already have the od release plans like a week or two weeks or at most a month later or something like that. This movie had absolutely nothing on the horizon. I was checking like over and over again and then all the sudden it was like. Oh it's finally out yes. They gave it the full traditional window. They played in theaters for a decent amount of time. A normal amount of time and then it was gone for what we used to think of. As the normal amount of time he'll it was Said finally out. on vod. And i don't know if it's i think it's sony who released. This may be one of the only ones who are still sticking with those windows. I think they might have done that for a couple of the other movies that they released last year. Like yellow rose. And that richard jenkins one where he worked at a fast restaurant The last shift. I think that was called sounds interesting. I haven't seen that. I didn't i saw rose which was which was nice. It's worth seeing but all of those were theatrical releases. That like this one. I think maybe did get the full window of time. So i don't know how that's working out for them but whatever everyone's just trying what they can try basically but Well hawaii don't we start getting into some puzzle pieces here. We'll get into more of what. This movie is all about along the way. But what do you have your first puzzle piece for the kid detective. Well my first one is probably the most obvious one that was mentioned in reference to this movie and almost every review. It's a mystery. Team has a very very similar premise Although treated much more comedic lee. And it's a it's a group of characters who used to be these kid detectives. They solved crimes when they were kids. They had a little club and now they're all grown up but They're still fixated on the idea of solving crimes and In that movie they treat it as if they sort of haven't grown up like they're still very immature and naive and they don't understand the way. The world works Which is not the case here in the kid. Detective i mean he may be kind of holding onto his past glory but he's clearly an adult that understands adore things But that's part of this sort of the source of the comedy in that movie that they and then they then end up in very cd case that they're trying to solve right goes against all of their weird wholesome values and it's a fun movie. I feel like it's one of those movies because it comes from a comedy sketch group. That probably would have been a great comedy sketch and his. Maybe not quite a great feature film is a lot of fun stuff and donald glover is the most famous member of that group. Who of course went on to do a lot of bigger things but he's he's funny so i'm i i would think that you probably thought of this one as well. Surprisingly i've never seen it. But i saw it mentioned in a lot of the reviews and actually planning on watching it this weekend. I'm like really excited to see this movie. It sounds Sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. It's totally up your alley. I feel like you know with with all of the things that we've gotten from you on awesome movie year about your your picks that we end up watching. This is one hundred percent within that realm awesome awesome. Well i'll over my first pick. This is the first thing that kind of came to mind for me. Once i started watching the movie and shane black's the nice guys. Which is a movie as you know. I absolutely love. I think is probably the funniest movie of the last ten years. And it's just just as great example of private is just not being great at their job but kind of fumbling their way through it and saving the day and succeeding anyway and the jokes in this movie and the kid detective. It is a very dry movie. And i could see where some people Would you know kind of not like really. Dig into the particular brand of comedy. But there's so much funny in this if it's on your wavelength i guess like there's so many quick little bits and pieces and like there's visual gags. There's big swing for the fences jokes. There's just a lot of funny baked into this movie and it's just a matter of getting on its wavelength to like really find all of it and i feel like that's kind of in that shame. Black tradition of just quick zippy one liners and little just so many little things just baked into it for you to find and i just love love that kind of thing. Yeah that's a very. I mean i. I liked that movie a lot too. It's it's a lot of fun. And i'm not sure if the kid detective is quite as quick witted and black movie. I mean that's okay. That's not a problem. It's like you said it's a bit drier i. It's not as fast paced and zippy with the jokes or As a shame. Black movie but Definitely i can. I can see that That link there and the nice guys is great. Oh yes so good. And i will say that a lot of the things i said are going to work the way into some other puzzle pieces. But why don't we move on to your next piece though all right. Well yeah i think. I i also eventually came up with a bunch of things that we're.

Check out our patriotic produced by david. Rosen all those things but you know most of all. You're here now. You're here with us today. So let's talk about a a movie. Let's talk about a movie that I wanted to make sure to get a chance to talk about i. I didn't love this movie. It's called the midnight sky it stars and is directed by george clooney. And it's out on netflix. Six it came out a couple of weeks back already But i wanted to make sure to do an episode on it. Because even though i didn't love it I thought it would be a good jumping off point for some good puzzle. Pieces some good discussion and joining me. Is josh bell from awesome movie year and we had a great conversation about it. I am really happy. We got to do this one. So that is coming up now in a second but Also coming up last week this week. Like surrounding this episode is a whole bunch of special end of two thousand twenty content. We've got the top ten of the year. Which would have just come up at the time that this is Going going up. That came out this past friday and We also had a top ten first time. Watches of two thousand twenty. That's going to be an interesting episode and a top five Documentaries of two thousand twenty. So a lotta great special episodes coming your way so just wanna make sure you all know about that And then of course we'll be getting onto more regular episodes of piecing together buffer. Now let's get into the midnight sky. Who all right. Josh bell is back with us to talk about the new. George clooney movie. The midnight sky josh. How doing i'm doing. Well how are you. I am great. I am very much looking forward to our Top ten movies of the year episode planning on recording later this week but we got other movies to squeeze in i so we are talking about the midnight sky. I think this movie is not going to be in that top. Ten list may may just Fall below there. But we'll we'll get our thoughts in on this episode. At least we'll have mentioned in the closing of two thousand twenty. Yeah this is. This is an interesting movie. I didn't love it. I've as i've like been putting together my puzzle piece lists and stuff like that and just kind of reflecting on 'em like it wasn't it wasn't that bad and i'm glad we're gonna be talking about it. I think it's It's definitely movie we're talking about and there should be some good pieces but i did want to ask you though upfront. Was this a movie. Obviously we just kind of randomly were like it will. Let's do the midnight sky but was this a movie that you were like really looking forward to and it was coming out now not right now i mean i wasn't i wasn't like oh i. Hey i can't believe. I'd have to see that movie or anything but i think george clooney as director is not particularly. I mean there's some decent movies but he doesn't have a super great track record and the other thing is he doesn't have a particularly distinctive style. So there's nothing like the new george clooney movie. I know how that's going to be and like. I really enjoy what he does. So i'm going to look forward to that. I think he's a good actor And i like scifi movies. It was based on a book that got a lot of acclaim and it looked kind of intriguing to me but it wasn't at the top of my list of things that i wanted to see. I did however go out of my way to see this movie at the drive in when is available in part because i was excited because the drive in here hasn't been showing that many net flicks films. Even though some of the indoor theaters here have been. I would have loved to go see manque for example a big screen or Which we could have done if i wanted to go to an indoor theatre here. But they didn't have it at the drive in. So i saw that they were playing it and i thought oh. Yeah i'm just gonna i'm gonna go check that out because i didn't want to go see christmas chronicles to drive in which they played for many weeks or so. I was excited kind of about that. And i felt like this was a good movie to see on a big screen and i almost wonder if my slightly more favourable response to it had to do with getting to see it that way possible. I don't know so no. It was one of those movies that i think in the in the long list of what's coming up at the end of the year that is Prestigious and being pushed for awards a kind of got lost there. I think but Once it was once it was out. I thought you know what i wanna see at night. I actually went. I ended up going on the last day before it closed. Because i wanted to make sure to see it before it laughed and obviously there wasn't i don't think it did a huge business Three three other cars there with me. Maybe an and one of them left halfway through the movie so this kind of movies so it's the kind of thing that like in the in the in the old times when you go to an indie theater in some unsuspecting people would think oh george clooney. He's a big handsome movie star. Let's go see that movie and then halfway through like what is this. Slow space nonsense. I needed a nap. I think what you're saying though About george clooney. The director is absolutely right. And and it sucks. I honestly it bugs me. Because i like him so much as an actor and just as like this personality i mean he's one of the one of the few movie stars who like. I just feel like. I'm rooting for away. When he does direct a movie when he does try to expand on what he does and yeah. It's definitely a lot more miss than hit for sure. Yeah and he's obviously dedicated to it. It's not like sometimes there's actors and they direct one movie and you get the impression that they thought like. I'm going to try this out. And then they don't really follow through with it but this has got to be his sixth or seventh movie as a director right. And i'm i'm sure he's planning more so it seems like he would have at some point developed a particular perspective or sil- or something and It doesn't have. I mean this movie doesn't feel like similar to other george clooney direct do now. He's in any way not at all every one of them seems like i almost wonder if you go back through them all if you'd find influence from whoever he had recently worked with you know the previous years. Yeah i think that's something that's come up a lot. The idea that he works with these big directors because he's a big movie star and they kind of rub off on him and he thinks oh you know what i want to make a movie like the coen brothers i wanna make. It'll be like steven soderbergh. I wanna make a movie like alphonso not to our right. And he's george clooney and he's famous so he gets money and he gets his pick of projects. I i don't know how hot this was a project but again it was. Based on a very acclaimed novel it was written the screenplay by mark smith who wrote the revenue in to certainly a hot screenwriter. I could see this as a project that had like a lot of interest from different directors. But george clooney's george.

And it's out on netflix. Six it came out a couple of weeks back already But i wanted to make sure to do an episode on it. Because even though i didn't love it I just thought it would be a good jumping off point for some good puzzle. Pieces some good discussion and joining me. Is josh bell from awesome movie year and we had a great conversation about it. I am really happy. We got to do this one. So that is coming up now in a second but Also coming up last week this week. Like surrounding this episode is a whole bunch of special end of two thousand twenty content. We've got the top ten of the year. Which would have just come up at the time that this is Going up that came out this past. Friday and We also had a top ten first time. Watches of two thousand twenty. That's going to be an interesting episode and a top five Documentaries of two thousand twenty. So a lotta great special episodes coming your way so just wanna make sure you all know about that And then of course we'll be getting onto more regular episodes of piecing together buffer. Now let's get into the midnight sky. Who all right. Josh bell is back with us to talk about the new. George clooney movie. The midnight sky josh. How doing i'm doing. Well how are you. I am great. I am very much looking forward to our Top ten movies of the year episode planning on recording later this week but we got other movies to squeeze in i so we are talking about the midnight sky. I think this movie is not going to be in that top. Ten list may may just Fall below there. But we'll we'll get our thoughts in on this episode. At least we'll have mentioned in the closing of two thousand twenty. Yeah this is. This is an interesting movie. I didn't love it. I've as i've like been putting together my puzzle piece lists and stuff like that and just kind of reflecting on 'em like it wasn't it wasn't that bad and i'm glad we're gonna be talking about it. I think it's It's definitely movie we're talking about and there should be some good pieces but i did want to ask you though upfront. Was this a movie. Obviously we just kind of randomly were like it will. Let's do the midnight sky but was this a movie that you were like really looking forward to and it was coming out now not right now i mean i wasn't i wasn't like oh i. Hey i can't believe. I'd have to see that movie or anything but i think george clooney as a director is not particularly. I mean there's some decent movies but he doesn't have a super great track record and the other thing is he doesn't have a particularly distinctive style. So there's nothing like. Oh the new george clooney movie. I know how that's going to be and like. I really enjoy what he does. So i'm going to look forward to that. I think he's a good actor And i like scifi movies. It was based on a book that got a lot of acclaim and it looked kind of intriguing to me but it wasn't at the top of my list of things that i wanted to see. I did however go out of my way to see this movie at the drive in when is available in part because i was excited because the drive in here hasn't been showing that many net flicks films. Even though some of the indoor theaters here have been. I would have loved to go see manque for example a big screen or Which we could have done if i wanted to go to an indoor theatre here. But they didn't have it at the drive in. So i saw that they were playing it and i thought oh. Yeah i'm just gonna i'm gonna go check that out because i didn't want to go see christmas chronicles to drive in which they played for many weeks or so. I was excited kind of about that. And i felt like this was a good movie to see on a big screen and i almost wonder if my slightly more favourable response to it had to do with getting to see it that way possible. I don't know so no. It was one of those movies that i think in the in the long list of what's coming up at the end of the year that is Prestigious and being pushed for awards a kind of got lost there. I think but Once it was once it was out. I thought you know what i wanna see at night. I actually went. I ended up going on the last day before it closed. Because i wanted to make sure to see it before it laughed and obviously there wasn't i don't think it did a huge business Three three other cars there with me. Maybe an and one of them left halfway through the movie so kind of movies so it's the kind of thing that like in the in the in the old times when you go to an indie theater in some unsuspecting people would think oh george clooney. He's a big handsome movie star. Let's go see that movie and then halfway through. What is this slow space nonsense. I needed a nap. I think what you're saying though About george clooney. The director is absolutely right. And and it sucks. I honestly it bugs me. Because i like him so much as an actor and just as like this personality i mean. He's one of the one of the few movie stars who feel like i'm rooting for away. When he does direct a movie when he does try to expand on what he does and yeah. It's definitely a lot more miss than hit for sure. Yeah and he's obviously dedicated to it. It's not like sometimes there's actors and they direct one movie and you get the impression that they thought like. I'm going to try this out. And then they don't really follow through with it but this has got to be his sixth or seventh movie as a director right. And i'm i'm sure he's planning more so it seems like he would have at some point developed a particular perspective or sil- or something and It doesn't have. I mean this movie doesn't feel like similar to other george clooney direct do now. He's in any way not at all every one of them seems like i almost wonder if you go back through them all if you'd find influence from whoever he had recently worked with you know the previous years. Yeah i think that's something that's come up a lot. The idea that he works with these big directors because he's a big movie star and they kind of rub off on him and he thinks oh you know what i want to make a movie like the coen brothers i wanna make. It'll be like steven soderbergh. I wanna make a movie like alphonso not to our right. And he's george clooney and he's famous so he gets money and he gets his pick of projects. I i don't know how hot this was a project but again it was. Based on a very acclaimed novel it was written the screenplay by mark smith who wrote the revenue in to certainly a hot screenwriter. I could see this as a project that had like a lot of interest from different directors. But george clooney's george.

Made by a friend of mine Doug Farah and is a track called escape.

"Yeah I mean there's a lot of those I I was. I was sort of wondering like you know which to include. Or how many should I include their certainly Other ones in movies like the bad seed or the good son. That non supernatural that are just like the basically the premises. The kid is like a Dick. That's a little bit of a different one. But right right and that but again you kind of wonder at certain points when he's like acting out at school it's like Oh is it just. Is The kid just kind of an asshole or is there something else going on? Yeah keep you wondering that at least for the first portion right. Yeah so what are you going next so I only have one more because I had the Baba Duke to But my other one is the only non horror movie that I picked is drop dead Fred. Cates which is a comedy I I saw when I was like ten and that is the last time I saw it. But it is a movie about an adult woman who's imaginary friend returns to wreak havoc in life and it's done as a comedy of course which this is not but I felt like that was. That was a very specific kind of story that hasn't been told that much but ultimately that is what this movie is about. Is that the imaginary friend and also the idea of like promising something to your imaginary friend when your child and not understanding what it means like she says. Oh we're going to get married Z. Or whatever and then she suddenly in this horrifying position as an adult. And I think that's something like in drop dead. Fred is not married or whatever and I don't remember the details but just like oh we'll be friends forever or something like that and then you know they show up when you're thirty and they're like ray remember when we were going to be friends forever so I think that movie is not a horror movie but I think it might have traumatized me slightly when I saw it as a child. It's like Rick. May All the British comedian from the young ones. Who Plays Fred Right Phoebe? Cates so yeah. That was what I was thinking of. And the only other. This wouldn't be a puzzle -sarily but there's a very short lived. Sitcom called Imaginary Mary with gentlemen which is about a woman whose imaginary friend comes back and causes problems in her life. Buns that movie or that that show not as influential or I don't take anyone remembers it. Yeah I was GONNA say I haven't heard of that one but I certainly had fred though. Yeah I think I'd show maybe didn't even last a whole season for like five years ago or something like that. Well I will just mention my last one then which I think goes along. Pretty well with your setup there. Drop Dead Fred. That's beetlejuice mainly because of the The the mom being expected to marry Z. Kinda reminded me of that whole that whole you know situation there but of course that movie is so much more fun and so much more silly just like we were saying would drop dead. Fred but just the kind of troublesome a supernatural character. Yeah that makes sense and I think Tweak this movie in a way and make it kind of funny. I mean if Z doesn't really you know see him as a character short if he did show up and he looked like beetlejuice he looked like drop dead. Fred it would be a very different kind of movie yet. Final Act already is very like a weird tone shift but I mean it could get really weird if they went for the comedy aspect of it. Could I think it's the right balance? You don't want movies. You don't want it to get too weird because flake. It's got this very clear. Likes sort of slow-burn horror tone and I think. Even though the plot changes it keeps that tone and it works. Well absolutely well right on. Let's do the finish puzzle. And we'll get into some closing thoughts finished puzzle for z includes hereditary the Baba Duke oculus insidious new nightmare annabel child's play the Omen Joshua. Drop Dead Fred Beetlejuice. And of course we have just sat here and named a whole bunch of creepy kid movies. But we won't do that. Yes we could one last thought I did Want to mention in this. Of course it'd be way way way too new to be a puzzle piece but I was reminded a little bit of a lien. Ells the invisible man from earlier this year In the way that it just uses these kind of empty rooms where you just know something must be in the frame. But you don't really quite know where to look you know and I thought that's an interesting technique to use to really kind of mine a lot of horror out of really nothing there you know right. That's a great thing to us when you don't have a budget what's yours point at nothing and scare the audience. That's good so yeah I can see L. Of course involved. In the insidious movies so there's no connection there as well you know. I think for both of us. It's it's hard to go. You know to sort of separate this from our excitement and seeing someone from the Vegas Film Community have such a big success. And so I'm I'm very happy about that and I think also like I've said a couple times Keegan. Connor Tracy who I remember all the way back from Jake two point. Oh I don't know if you remember that. Show really yeah. She's she's done a lot of TV. She's a Canadian actor and I'm sure that's part of know Brandon who's from Canada of goes back and he shoots with all the resources that he can get there but she's done a ton of TV and a lot of supporting roles and has had a long successful career but she doesn't always get to play a lead role and so I just thought she really did a fantastic job in this movie and it's cool to see her. Get that kind of showcase so yeah I. I'm glad that it's around. I hope People Watch it. I mean obviously they have been but I hope more people do and if we have people in Vegas here who are interested in supporting our local talent. I hope those people will check it out as well absolutely. I think that does it Josh. Did you see anything else recently? Like to recommend. Yeah I mean I was just talking about movies on. Vod streaming that get more attention than they might have and I've been writing about a lot of those and I will mention a movie called. I will make you mine which is going to be out on. Vod On may twenty six It's written and directed by Lynn Chen. Who actually like he can. Tracy is a veteran like a character actor who's in a lot of small TV parts but doesn't really get to play lead role and not only is she the star of it but Also the writer director. It's her first movie as a as a filmmaker and it's a sort of sequel to early movie earlier movies by a different director named Dave Boyle that I actually haven't seen But it stands alone and it takes the main character from those movies. Whose kind of this scruffy indie musician and shifts him into the supporting role. And it's really about these three women who have been his romantic interests in the previous movies and how they're going into Middle Age and dealing with regrets and how they feel about him but also how they feel about their romantic lives and their careers and everything going forward. It's shot in this nice black and white. It's very reminiscent of the Richard Linklater before movies in. But I think you know not in a in a way that copies them but in a way that also deals with the passage of time and how you relate to people from your romantic pass after time has has gone on. So it's just it's like seventy five minutes long. It's a nice little sort of sketch of movie but I liked it a lot. It's called I will make you mine from Lynn Chen and it's going to be on beauty. Rental may twenty six uniform. Well why don't you tell people where they can find your writing and awesome movie? Yeah you can find me at. Josh Bell hates everything.

Josh Speidel, Vermont player who suffered brain injury in car accident as recruit, scores on Senior Night

"Five years ago Josh bell was one of the highest recruits ever to land at the university of Vermont he was a highly recruited basketball player and then he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident when he was a senior in high school shortly after all right the three star recruit committed to playing in Vermont well the prognosis was not great in any way shape or form in fact his parents told him by his parents were told by the medical staff that he should be prepared to they should prefer him to live in a permanent vegetative state right and he has made a remarkable recovery credible and through those to Vermont because they they maintained a scholarship and honored his scholarship and last night senior night he made his first D. one start and registered the first points of his collegiate career in a match up against all the I mean incredible obviously it was it was you know they talk with Albany about at Albany you know the tip off they scored and then the Vermont comes out with the ball and they get it to to Josh by dell and any makes a laugh and you know then give talks from everybody his teammates his team the opposing team everybody for just an incredible story of just that tragic moment and I just think of it as as a parent seeing your kid and being told he may be in a vegetative state for the rest of his life and just when you when you see the highlight and see him out there you know doing what he's doing it's just it's just unbelievable it is and that was what's trending brought to you by PSG nobody makes golf clubs the way we do period so Josh white all got on the court made the first basket and then it was was asked about it after the game and actually had a tremendous line about what's what thought process went through his mind I was thinking about maybe like Mr Napier Avenue again no offense a rebound in there well you know I'd be on my go go one for one hundred percent my college career so you know it's you know it's a dream come true

How's it going Josh going well how are you I am good man I'm good and just enjoying this awesome movie year what yeah we were just recording awesome movie or so I figured I'd give you guys a little plug there oh that's so nice view this has been a good movie year it hasn't been and there's been some awesome movies it most certainly has been yeah and you know I guess we'll as we get into our wrap ups and stuff which will become and just like a couple of months here on there will be few net flicks movies and in the you know the conversation they shouldn't even though I rally so hard against Netflix all the time I know you do I know but this is one that I actually really enjoyed so did I you for that because I wonder if I'd have enjoyed it as much or if I'd have been playing on twitter the whole time or something because my attention span but yeah that is that is problematic I actually liked this movie but I came out of it thinking like it's nice that I saw it in the theater but it's kind of the kind of movie that could've been perfectly satisfied to watch at home yeah absolutely it's it's not like a lot of times when when these movies come out you know and you you you get the tweet you know the takes immediately and it's like see it in the big screen possible I think you're right it's not nest sairy but you know for me and my attention span it's always good to see movies in the theater when possible glad we got to do that yes absolutely so dolemite is my name side from just being Dolemite we talked about this at the screening about how the dolemite movies aren't necessarily the greatest movies in the world they're just these refund things from back in the day and aside from this this this Guy Rudy Ray Moore and his story is his life story we'll be story the other big story of the movie is Eddie Murphy Yeah No I think people have been saying that this is sort of a movie about how Eddie Murphy's career in a way well even though I think wordy raigmore had a very different career Murphy has enjoyed much greater success and retire claim for a much longer period of time and for good reason yeah absolutely but this is a bit of a comeback for him in that he hasn't been particularly prolific in the last several years and the movies that he has made have been very poorly received absolutely yeah and I feel like like in these this time that he hasn't done that much everything he's done has been almost like a like oh look he's back and he's gray that was lost the allegedly but I feel like there were other things around that time that he was getting praised for but yeah I guess John Comedies kind of like Norbert and Norbert was like a box office success story then there's these other dreadful high concept comedies like meet days yeah that are terrible but also not successful yeah and then a handful of a movie like I think he's maybe even his most recent movie called Mr Church which was kind of serious true life drama that I never saw but again was just like horribly review yeah barely got a release that's right that didn't net did not do very well so I think is weird 'cause dreamgirls was sort of like a new height for him and he got nominated for an Oscar and it was so popular and successful and then he followed it up by doing nothing good yeah like thirteen years yeah almost like an Adam Sandler kind of thing going on but now he's got a big huge role the little because we talked about it and I think probably on your list so I'll steal your thunder and mention the disaster artists yes the bio pic about Tommy was so lash the making of the room and like you said the dolemite movies and I've only seen the original dolemite which is what's focused on in this movie and there were some maybe one or two sequels and also ray Moore made a bunch of other similar movies that weren't specifically about dolemite but had a lot of the same sensibility to them and I've only seen that original but it is I would say like the room of blaxploitation movies right it's very bad and it's very bad in a way that is so unique to Rudy Ray Moore and you watch this movie and you think there's the only way that this could possibly have been made is as the weird vision of this one guy who is the bane creative force he didn't direct it but he's the CO writer He created the character of Dolemite and he's The star of it and the movie is designed to showcase him sometimes to his detriment and I think that was exactly what happened with Tommy was so room and that's a movie that went on to have a big cult following as dolemite did and people look back on it now and they have a lot of affection for Tommy was though as in-cabin to Rudy Ray Moore in his later years and it's so both the disaster artist andled his name look at the making of this bad movies and everything that kind of haphazardly happened with a sense of affection sure like giving credit to these people like hey maybe these were bad but these were people who didn't have a lot going for them they didn't have a lot of resources they didn't have a lot of support but they had passion and they put these movies together no matter what they're similarly constructed yeah I think I think another parallel to the disaster artist is just the way they as you know as you're watching your kind of you almost are wondering like like why didn't people just give up on him but he just seems to suck people in you know and that was exactly what was happening with time it was so I mean people just it was almost like they couldn't leave they just had to see it through you know no matter what was going to happen and no matter how just crazy and ridiculous a guy during the making of these things right right and I think another thing in the disaster artist you see these like loving recreations of the most ridiculous moments in the room and you have that here too recreate these bids from from the original dolemite and perhaps the only disappointing differences that Rudy Ray Moore is not around shore appreciation the way the Tommy was Oh yeah absolutely but I think he felt some love especially from the hip hop community and stuff like that yeah all right I'm going to go with my first puzzle piece I'm GonNa Kinda jump around here I wasn't going to start with this but just because we were talking about that appreciation and the hip hop community and also we're talking about those re-creations jeans so this is one of those weird ones where it's like we're a movie that's like either a longtime sequel or based on a true story whatever one of those ones that the thing I'm going.

"I did not know that there was an all star selection process until i happen to listen to multiple game so this is kinda my evening routine now i loved to listen to games on the radio and since i only get a limited number of games on my t._v. package i can get them all on the radio when i skip around so i listened to astros pirates listen to red sox white sox last night i spent some time listening to dodgers diamondbacks and every single game that i tuned into they mentioned the starters election which begins today at noon eastern time and runs through thursday afternoon so it's only twenty eight hours that's your entire window but you get to pick the starters for the upcoming all star game it's called the starters election the all-star starters election that's quite a hashtag set us up almost all of your characters on twitter so the ballot will go live either on m._l._b. dot com or you can google it simply the partnership with google maybe that's why they changed the process because they needed something unique for their partnership with google so you get and it doesn't matter how many votes the players got to this point all of that gets thrown out the window and they're on a clean slate so for instance first base in the american league luke void carlos santana c._j. krone for the twins you get to pick and it doesn't matter that voight had the most number of votes to get to this point nationally freddy freeman josh bell anthony rizzo doesn't matter that that freeman had two point two million votes he's only going to be the starter if he gets elected now if it dawned on me we already see this as a bit of a popularity contest right so gary sanchez catcher in the american league had double the number of votes of the next guy on the list james mckenna the white sox double the number of votes so it seems to reason if he's already gotten that many votes that if most of those people then show up at the the election at the bow doors the ballot box then he's gonna end up winning anyway so i'm i don't know it feels redundant but maybe that's just me so if you want to be part of the all-star starters election process you now get the chance to pick the starters and the game of course is coming up at progressive field in cleveland a couple of weeks from now let's just just shy of two
