"They go to this island that they've not been invited to denims looking for kong but he doesn't seem to know what calling is but he's heard of cong- right and he's looking for it so they come to this island. They stumble onto the ceremony where they're preparing next yet. The a young girl to be the bride of calm. And i have a lot of questions about that. These people have been living there. We don't know how long they appear to be isolated from the rest of the world. There's this great wall that some civilization has built to keep out call. Whatever it is we don't know yet and we don't know if it is their ancestors who built this wall or some separate civilization and then these people came there later but they have made this cold calculation to sacrifice one of their own in order to preserve the rest of them. And it's working. It seems horrible does but it is working and these white guys come in and fuck it all up. They bucket all up now. I there's also some some drive-by racism here where the chief sees the white woman Yes golden woman. And at first i thought well of course he wants to give congress outsider instead of one of his people that make sense but then i was watching it again and i had forgotten. He offers six of his women for and darrow so he does think she is in fact more valuable than his women that khan will also find her more pleasing on the other hand if he gives six of his women for her. That means six of his people can leave the island. So maybe. I don't know maybe i've given the cheap too much credit. Maybe he's trying to save them. You know let's see how how many will be dumbed down. Take off the island for serve and sacrifice their lady to con. But of course they say no right. Oh gosh let's go back and talk about jack for a minute though. Oh yes tax. Oh jack jack driscoll the three main characters all have last names beginning with d. I don't think that actually means anything is just the thing i noticed. Carl denham and daryl and john jack driscoll another theme of this movie that no one else seems to have noticed is that it is about a young man coming to terms.

She learned witchcraft from her grandmother. And her mother who were also witches. She was a hereditary. Which i guess is what the people kind of get a lot of people see things early on and then a lot of people's generational practice. I think it was not so much that she was working at a pottery barn and then decided i think would be a witch. You know we will do that with like. I think i'm just gonna be life coach crystal and i'm unemployed. Young mean do this. Let's do this. Yeah she seemed to have a long history with that. She was a sixth generation.

"I you know a lot of people are team kong. A lot of people are team godzilla jay. I'm team jacob. Yeah sure well i can't. I can't understand how anybody could not be team calm. Because he's he's king kong. He's like he's our guy. Yano japanese then should be godzilla american announced. No no you're right. I think you know what's great about kong as a character is curious and he protects the characters and a lot of ways and you know again it comes down to back that romance in a way that love story that that affection that protector quality to where godzilla like saves people like by accident me. He like he fights other crazier monsters. But there's no real humanity in his character exactly the kong. He's virtually human character. Yeah and he had because he silent because he can't speak. He can only roar. He has this kind of chaplinesque quality. Which i think that they also really do beautifully in peter jackson's film essentially that kind of chaplinesque definitely because she's like an acrobat or whatever and she's way more talented than fairway. I love the moment. She's juggling and he just like totally bored by even the ice rink these are all very chaplinesque. Innocent things and i think some people. They might seem she's ball which might be part of the complaint about the film but to me that's harkening back to the essence of the success of kong in the first place. Sure is that he has this kind of childlike Protective quality for an so. I think it's again just like it's it's his humanity I think he's fierce bad ass like he has all that going for him to and he's really scary but also to we don't really know what godzilla is. It's just like a lizard monster that has no basis in reality. Yeah so where we look kong and and we we can see gorilla. you can see a primate. that's close to us and dna and shore. So i think there's even some of those words subliminal levels to that it's just a real thing we can wrap our minds around right. I didn't that the this suspension of disbelief which cinema does better than any other art form. still has its limits. Yeah you know. I cared about fan knows because it looked like josh brolin. Gravity about that character. I was invested in that character. Yeah so and that's a big ridiculous purple grimace. But i still found myself involved in him because there was a sense of reality yet. A sense of humanity to it. So no matter. What even if people love escapism. They always kinda wanna be reminded. The have one foot in something real sure i think kong at from a monster by far represents the best..

RIP Business Suit?
"Tina Ob is a professor of management at Babson College and she says, a lot of students will come to her. You know before they're interviewed for the first internships or first jobs and they will ask like Bush should I wear this job. So she thinks about the question of like how professional and professional norms a lot when I asked most people what is the most big symbol of the business world and visit professionalism almost everyone says the business eventually and Tina started thinking about why in about where these norms come from also she herself had a special relationship with the business suit because before she was in academia Tina worked in banking and I absolutely were businesses because We think about the prototype of a banker is that you have a tailored suits white man play golf. I'm a black woman doesn't play golf. So I had to get the soup right and they was. I mean I had the best. They were beautiful suits and they were tailored. It was by putting on a crown almost I felt special I. Felt you don't have on my uniform. This is my beautifully tailored uniform and people perceive me differently. So now Tina works in academia and she loves researching things and so all of this got her thinking like wait why is the business suit? The thing that we all wear to work like what about kilts or row observe why not something else so she started tracing the business suit back through time all the way back to its origins in the sixteen hundreds it turns out we have Charles the second to thank for the suit he was the. King, of England four hundred years ago. Yes and at the time when he became king, the fashion in the royal courts was like very very over the top men were these huge poofy wigs and they had these big sleeves on their clothes and crazy colors because di was very expensive. So it was a sign you were wealthy men wore high heeled shoes but all of his over the top nece in the royal courts it was it was starting to cause some problems for Charles getting all this criticism from religious and economic leaders who were saying that the royal family there were morally Herat's overly decorated, and so he was looking for a way to try to. Present himself and As more restraints, the sewage back then were made from wool instead of silk, and even though the colors were still kind of like Easter and colors just all over the place. This was still super restrained at the time and it starts getting even more strain. So details on the codes when Charles the second I started wearing, them were quite long but they got shorter and shorter and shorter and eventually the. Colors that people in suits became more muted product. We see today or at least what we used to see I, mean I actually can't remember the last time I saw someone in a suit, and you know says, she can't remember the last time. She wore one I have on a workout Sir Yoga pants but you know what typically going to work I wouldn't have the song. Oh, it's the same for me talk. It's so nice, oh. Yeah. I can actually there's been a lot of talk on social media and in all of these articles think pieces about how much people have been loving dressing down Lali living that yoga pants life right and it's not like working from home is going away. I. Mean millions of offices are closed through the rest of the year and beyond and. Even for people who do go back to the office, the setups probably going to be pretty different probably fewer people some partitions, maybe less reason to suit up there. Also Tina says that now the people have tasted this yoga pants life going back is going to be hard. There's something to say about the sigh of relief the collective sigh of relief I think the world. That tells you that there was labor associated with getting dressed in a professional way. Tina says for now she is advising her students to still put in that Labor for job interviews in banking and consulting jobs, or at least take care of the top part that people are GonNa zoom suit jacket suit jacket. Exactly and you know the suit has survived four hundred years of change electricity, the combustion engine, the Internet two world wars the suit has survived. All of that is working from home really going to be the thing that takes it down death by Yoga. Pants, seriously towards yoga pants that killed the I'm on. I like the idea of the suit as King Kong. But you know I don't know Cardiff because the business has been around as you say for a very long time for four hundred years I mean. Things change and maybe this is the business suits swansong like maybe it's time for us to start wearing other kinds of close. WE'RE NOT GONNA be wearing suits forever right drew I put this all to Tina and she said, you know if you want to know the fate of the suit right now, you've got to talk to people who work in fashion right look at fashion person at twin watcher about what we're seeing from shoppers and what designers are

"It makes no sense why he he essentially breeds electrical fire. Right. It's It's the dumbest thing ever. Meanwhile King Kong seeing up tried to break out of history trust the rope from the barge cut con- loose while secure second tries to blow up the bar with dynamite took to stop him but accidentally does it himself with the dynamite doesn't go off Zachariah in a row start shooting at the data might blow it up. They are successful but Kong just pissed when it have been cool he attacked ship right Yeah just kind of it phased the black and onto the next scene Yup, which is Kong Zillah see each other and they posture at each other contras rocks at Godzilla Godzilla breath weapon. Then just kind of walks away. I wasn't expecting fire. It didn't tell me this guy had fire for breath. I. Didn't sign up for this is a very sobering moment for Com. was like. That I can't grunt at anymore. I can't throw rocks and grunt. Doesn't respond. Well, it's like a, it's a POLKA Amman battle. It's not very effective. The UN reporter tells us that Godzilla is continuing his destructive path towards Tokyo the military works on a plan to Loganville into a trap and then set off explosives. So God Zillah, then falls into the trap and they said the explosives but to no avail Godzilla climbs the. And then the military decides that it's a good idea to put a barrier of high tension electrical wires around Tokyo. Godzilla seems to avoid electrical wires, but it gives Kong strength. So zilog goes over to the high tension wires immediately freaks out by trinity and walks away and then Congo's up to it and just eats the shit out of the electrical wires and he just gets superpowers basically it's. A. Now, the reason why that happened is because it was supposed to be again King Kong vs Frankenstein. Frankenstein was supposed to draw power from the electrical wires. Gotcha. So I guess since they scrapped base wrapped Frankenstein they will. We could just use that for calling now and it makes no sense. Why would a mammal a giant mammal feed off of the electricity? We should also say, so King Kong vs Frankenstein, it wasn't dislike Frankenstein's monster was like a a Frankenstein of giant monsters I. Believe it was. Yes. It was a kind of analogous. Of Different creatures essentially, and it was a giant Frankenstein's monster. Sound like King Kong was going up against the. Experts six on a good day. Levy. Hilarious. German guy going up against the. Build up just like stomp there. Yes like I'm going to take him down and just. He steps on them. Did you see Kong, Skull Island I have not. So do you care if I of spoil it for you now? All right. So essentially, Samuel Jackson has a hard on for stopping Kong. So He's getting ready to blow Kong and Congress simply smashes his fist. That's that's how it would have gone against Dr Frankenstein it would have been like. Wait till you see what I have for you monster. He just Kinda squishy. Finger and rubs it in and flicks them away. I would have been a great fight that stars podcast favorite Larsen right it does yes. Go Island I like her. Have a problem, her I think all three of us on his podcast enjoy Bree Larson. There's an outside person despises her she's listening at the door right now. I hope. So she just barges in like they're not talking about Bree Larson. This week. Now, we have to do it every week we have to mention something. Then the government puts in a call to evacuate Tokyo, which I probably Shoulda done hours ago. For days ago..

"There is a baby Kong that eventually emerges in this film Carlo Rambaldi wanted to make the Baby Kong mechanical construct but money became a sticky issue toward the end of the shoot so both forms of Baby Kong are played by actors. The Newborn Baby Kong was played by this local at that time seven year. Old Benjamin Catch Louis. He was the son of a music professor at the University of North Carolina. Wilmington and the money that Benjamin received for his work here as well as the residuals paid for him to go to college later. The older version of Baby Kong saw Peter Elliott doing double duty. He inhabited that role with a separate head that was designed by RIM Baldi King. Kong lives was shot in eastern Tennessee. In and around the newly built seventeen million dollar digi studios located in Wilmington North Carolina. Tennessee and North Carolina are to work states so digi did not have to worry about the labor union prices. They could work extended hours. They could work on the weekends and after thirteen weeks of location shooting. Eight more weeks of miniature filming photography and working with blue screens would take place inside the digi studios themselves in order to encourage the film industry to continue to work within the state. North Carolina Governor. Jim Martin had the state's National Guard to assist with the shoot they would portray the military forces used in the movie but Washington headquarters denied the request to use the National Guard because it was not good for the image of the Guard for the purpose of this film. So Governor Martin compromised he it out unofficial military uniforms and props national guard in their new costumes to play. Essentially what is like the National Guard or Army? John Scott? Who did the score for? Greystoke returns to the world of apes here with his compositions for King Kong Liz. This garnered one of the rare instances of praise in this film without much to tout in all other regards production designer Peter Merton he made about forty minutes or sets by far the tallest order he had ever had in his career to that point and he had to do it with inexperienced local talent not part of the Hollywood system so kind of King Kong sized order there John Gillan he received so credit for King Kong lives in the end but he didn't direct every part of this film. He removed himself from the project. At some point Gillerman son Michael had been killed in a car accident during the filming of Sheena his prior film and he was still undergoing the grieving process. He started to exhibit a lot of erratic behavior. Such is leaving the set halfway through the day to go sailing on one occasion. He got into an argument with the production staff and he disappeared for days. So Charles mccracken. He was a documentary filmmaker in the area. He stepped in to complete the picture. He did not receive credit but mccracken pretty much took over the film at some point test audiences when they saw King Kong lives. They despised it. The creative team speculated that audiences did not detect what the tone of the film should be. And that's why they were having problems. The riders claim that they wrote can come live to be a semi spoof. But everybody making the film treated it as if it was going to be a serious effort and that made what resulted seem all the more silly knowing that King Kong lives would be skewered by film critics. Egg did not allow any preview screenings. The also refused to send out clips to national. Tv critics unless promised in writing that they would only use them on their local shows. No national shows were allowed to show any clips from King Kong lives. Cisco neighbor got a letter from the g announcing this stipulation. They refused to sign it. They called the lack of clips on their show. Almost a public service because the movie was just that bad other national film critics instead of showing clips they would show moments from the trailer instead and it must have been a really bad year for movies. In Nineteen eighty-six the only Golden Raspberry award the razzies nomination. That King Kong lives received was for the one aspect that some critics actually found Praiseworthy Carlo Rambaldi effects which lost out to industrial light. Magic Howard. The duck work now King Kong lives awfulness even shocked those who made the movie. Linda Hamilton was stunned when she finally viewed the film and how ridiculous it played co writer Steven Pressman. He actually was very excited when it was about to receive. Its release. He invited. Everybody knew did a theater with him and he told them to get there early so they could all sit together because it was going to be a packed house he even rented out the place next to the theatre for a post screening celebration but only one other person bothered to show up besides pressman and his guests at the showing and everybody watched this movie in silence and soon all of his friends that he brought with him found excuses to leave instead of stay for that after party despite its reputation despite its lambasting by the film critics. King Kong has managed to gain a cult following among people primarily who loved bad movies. John Wilson the CO founder of the RAZZIES calls King Kong lives one of the most idiotically entertaining sequels ever made the gamble by Digi to fly under the radar of film. Critics ended up not working king. Kong lives tanked and hard at the box office. It debuted very lowly sixteenth place. Not even anywhere approaching the top ten and it fell out of most eaters by its third week in total King Kong lives took paltry four point seven million dollars in the US off of its eighteen million dollar budget now. King Kong lives by the end of this film. I mentioned Baby Kong. It implies a forthcoming entry to continue that character and his adventures as envisioned by shitting impress field to the Teen Kong. Eventually but de la Renta's Kong franchise pretty much died from the only thing that could kill Kong for good complete lack of box office appeal so King Kong would be dead and buried at least for Peter. Jackson would resurrect him in two thousand five. Very famously and much better. By the way Kim Collins is pretty much a terrible movie and entertaining kind of terrible in some respects but not a film. I recommend to anyone who's not intend to kind of joke around and laugh at it throughout so one and a half stars is what I GIVE. King Kong lives one and a half stars on my skill means. I do think that this is a poor movie one. I definitely would steer just about anybody from watching it unless I knew that that they really like stinkers. You know those kinds of films that some people consider so bad they're good. This can qualify for some people even though I personally found it mostly tedious so one and a half stars is the best I can give. King Kong lives despite is complete and utter failure at the box office. Believe it or not Dino de la. Renta's thought that there still was going to be life for the franchise a producer from deliverance. His productions approached film mission to create an animated spin off featuring the son of Kong from King Kong lives. The producer had no real concept in mind but he suggested crazy ideas. That King Kong could be like Superman. He could grow in height can fly through space to other planets. He could shoot lease from his eyes. He can become invisible really. The Sky was the limit as to the powers nation. Talk the producer down from this and they spent two weeks on the designs and the character concepts the even concocted a submarine that would be used by Kid Kong which is what he was going to be called the submarine which was dubbed the Cocoa Nautilus. It could fly and you can even head out into space but dino only saw film nation as work for hire they did not want to go in as partners to this and that was unacceptable to the animation studio so the deal was off so we never did get to see dino continue econ franchise at all in fact King Kong. Liz is pretty much buried. Today there's been no home video release since two thousand four's DVD no streaming on any streaming services. At least in the United States. I think there are some international versions that you can find which is actually where I had to find. This film had paid kind of a pretty penny just to be able to deliver this review so I hope that Jewish Choi It. I'm going to probably sell this on ebay myself. I can't see myself actually sitting through it another time between now and the time. I'm eventually on a respirator. So he lives does not live very much to this day in the minds of most people.

"Find a way to do that given that he died in the first film so he said if son of Kong was ever going to exist they would need to bring back King Kong for the next film. Find a mate and then they continue the franchise with this offspring of con- so brainstorming yet again shit in. Pressfield's came up with their bridge film whereby Kong survived the fall from the World Trade Center. And he's been kept alive on a respirator. Awaiting an artificial heart dino thought. This was a brilliant idea. He thought that audiences would by this. But do you know was not so convinced about this? Other female Kong being found thinking that King Kong was a unique entity on earth. Shit impressed feel told Dino that King Kong had to have a mother surely there must have been others others that have not been found at some point and so they persuaded him to see things their way. They pitched their idea to this lady. Director John Gillerman who dino had moved off of Tai Pan at that time to put on King Kong lives and they all crafted the sequel that we continue the story from King Kong but not rehash the plot no foul no Kong. Rampaging through the city the main character of this film would be a man of adventure in Indiana Jones type. Who and the conflict primarily would take place out in the untamed areas of rural United States. Another factor in the favor of releasing nineteen eighty-six up Universal Studios tour at that time set June of Nineteen eighty-six to unveil their newest attraction called the King Kong encounter in which visitors would experience being shaken by a rampaging Kong as he appeared in the nineteen seventy six film and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get king. Kong lives into theaters while it was in the Zeitgeist of the public in Hollywood to further. Increase Buzz D. E. G. Delegates Entertainment Group petitioned for King Kong to get it star on the Hollywood walk of fame the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce though rejected that idea despite a few petitions from other organizations now because all everybody was out of contract by this point none of the original cast desire to return except using archival footage shown in the introduction to the film that depicts Khong after he gets shot down from the top of the World Trade Center and falls to the streets below. We come to learn that Kong improbably survived. He's been existing in a coma for the last ten years on life support in giant lab facility in Atlanta awaiting a giant artificial heart to replace the organic one that can no longer support him without medical assistance. Kong also needs a lot of ape plasma for the surgery but there aren't any apes like him to give the blood at that time the lead heart surgeon. Dr Amy Franklin played by Linda Hamilton. She laments that only a miracle can save Kong now that miracle does arrive a soldier of Fortune named tank Mitchell. He discovers that there's another giant ape in the world while he's out there scouting for diamonds in the jungles of Borneo. He finds a way to bring the female ape back to the United States. And there's no real explanation about how he stuff the Tinton beast into an airplane but he brings this back four fortune and glory. The lab needs her plasma but to apes sense the presence of each other immediately. Which makes it particularly dangerous for humans trying to keep these two apes from doing what apes wants to do. Naturally the APES ESCAPE THEIR CONFINEMENT. They run away as fugitives. But the scientists can't have these two roaming the great smoky mountains wrecking havoc. So the military led by the tenacious. Colonel played by John Ashton. He's called in with the army to take whatever measures are necessary. And now it's up to Dr Franklin in Hank Mitchell to lead calm and Lady Kong to safety somehow during this time de la. Renta's had recently bought embassy pictures and he did that so that he could distribute his own films under the banner of the Della Rentis Entertainment Group digi as I mentioned earlier de la Renta's afforded the film initial eighteen million dollar budget four. What ends up mostly playing out like this dull and labored soap opera with giant apes in May of one thousand nine hundred sixty g made a public offering of its stock to try to gin up a little bit more money for the struggling company at this time for the starring role of Hank Mitchell Dino look toward a few actors one prominent one was Peter Weller who was eagerly anticipating at that time getting the role of Robocop. Dino said he would offer him more money than he would be offered for Robocop to do King Kong lives in the end. Weller wisely decided to opt for robocop although he was only going to make about ten percent of what Dina was offering for King Kong lives so real choice between art and money at that point. Dino was also pursuing racing driver Danny Sullivan. He was nineteen eighty-five Indy. Five hundred winner and he was approached by delicious but shoot conflicted with the start of the next racing season so he decided at the advice of his agents to decline Linda Hamilton. She initially balked at doing King Kong lives but the money offered was just too good so she accepted she. Reason that King Kong did not hurt. Jessica Lang's career so wasn't going to hurt hers. She had very little time to prepare though. Because Digi we're going back and forth between her and another actress in negotiating so they didn't decide until the last minute. The Hamilton would be choice. Hamilton's family background in nursing and medicine did help her to get quickly acclimated but she soon regretted these film roles in effect heavy films because the directors on these films hardly work with the actors all. She compared acting in these kinds of films as responding to a cattle prod. During most of the acting scenes the actors did not see the King kongs represented on the screen. It was usually some tall thing with the flag on top that they had to set their lines to so that the special effects wizards can put the cogs in later. But she did. Some of the conch suits that they were going to use at some point and she was amazed at seeing. Kong's changed their expressions and flirt and back there is but at that moment she also realized how bad this movie was likely going to be received and she became horrified at what she had gotten herself into. According to Co Star Brian. Kirwin was growing very unhappy working on the film and she started counting the days until it was behind her. It also came less than a year prior to Hamilton appearing on the TV show as Catherine Chandler as the beauty in beauty and the beast. I guess in this film to but she was the beauty who saved the beast not the beauty who kills him because of that heart transplant. Fred Korea show. He was initially the first producer on the king. Kong lives project but he moved over to do blue velvet for de Lorette instead Della Renta's company Co founder and President Martha Schumacher. Who would eventually become Dino's wife? She took over she had just completed. Maximum overdrive and was available Carlo. Rambaldi now a three time Oscar winners. Since he had done King Kong nineteen seventy-six. He came back for the makeup effects. Rambaldi constructed all new ape costumes because the original ones were now unavailable and he and his team started crafting about a dozen heads for the Kong's in the film depicting various states of mind each outfitted with mechanics that a team of technicians would stand about twenty feet away to control for the giant Kong on the operating table in his opening scene. They used a sophisticated inflatable. One would allow technicians to crawl in and around to simulate his breathing. Rick Baker. Who famously worked on the original King Kong? He felt disrespected for his work on that film so he passed on returning to do the sequel. Now that left to be played by the actor. Peter Elliott this time. He had recently acted in choreographed. The eight talent four. Greystoke Elliott though is only about five feet tall in real life so a lot of blue rating and the use of giant models or miniatures are employed to give the illusion that cog is ten times Elliott size. Elliot had to wear the suit about ten hours a day. Rick Baker could only stand three at a time. Elliott will lose about seven pounds in between putting it on taking it off at the end of the day just from perspiration from the heat and the lack of ventilation within the twenty pounds suit. Dino though felt that Elliott's is look a little too small to be Kong so he had another actor brought in to do some of the close ups in the Kong mask the suits made for Young Lady Kong are pretty much identical except for lady calling has breasts so we have to fixate on that too readily identify her from the mail. Khong S for Baby Kong. Yes.

"Have to pay any of them as extras the fifty bucks a pop usually afforded so they save some money there. I guess when the film finally came out critics were pretty much against the film. They were shocked that anyone would try to remake. The classic film and blockbusters they were kind of new phenomenon at the time. Jaws was really deemed. The first real one big budget films were considered in the seventies to be lesser in quality. The country was enduring a recession and they looked down upon lavish productions at least until the following year when Star. Wars came out King Kong still though made ninety million dollars worldwide. Far Short of the four hundred seventy million. That jazz took worldwide. But it's still pulled off a nice little profit even though chunks of it. We're going to universal as well as Archaic L. Nineteen Seventy six King Kong. It is a bubble headed but entertaining remaking is highly uneven when you watch it. It ranges from exceptionally good during certain parts. Downright awful in certain parts special effects are both impressive and laughable. It really runs the gamut of good and great and bad awful and a fine ensemble of actors. They do what they can. The dialogue is fairly painful. At times the opting for forced laughs at relies far too frequently on a film that also tries to double as a heart wrenching tragedy King Kong does despite the sophistication of the suit seed does look like a guy in a gorilla suit in the end. You don't necessarily feel. This is a real guerrilla. Pacing can be an issue languishing during certain scenes. That run along. The expense of the feature is a problem to deliverance. Wanted many of the props and sets and costumes that the paid big money for to be represented on the screen so they here in very lengthy scenes whether they add to the story or not because he wanted to show off these things that he had paid big money for and in the end. I think the real knock on it is that it's hard to really make out with the intent of this version of King. Kong is. Is it a remake? Is it a spoof? Is it an image? Is it an effects movie? Is it in earnest love story. Is it a camp comedy? Is it a tragedy? Is it a commentary on environmental exploitation? Well the answer is all of the love but it's not quite enough to make it a good example of any one of them so depending on what you're looking for coming in you'll get a little bit of what you like but you won't get a lot and so it does maintain a watch ability because of the scattershot approach but it's not enough to hit. Most people very strongly in any particular direction depending on their expectations. This giant ape seems content to reach only for the low hanging fruit much of the time. I think there are enough effective seating tier to think that a good film might have been made with some judicious editing. There's at least a half hour padded scenes to show off the special effects instead of pushing for the story. As I mentioned the filmmakers here I do think are successful evoking sympathy for the beast enough to make the ending resonate but I do think that in the end. King Kong remake aims so broadly that it does feel to surpass the original despite a very game. Cast here impressive technical specs and a great Jon Barry Score. I think it's most enduring gift to cinema in the end is that it made ultimately a star out of Jessica Lang so I guess you can give them thank you for that. She's a fantastic actress. But I think the movies just such a mixed bag. I can't quite give it a full recommendation. Even though I've watched this film constantly and I'm always entertained by in a certain respect by I also kind of laughing at it in another respect because there's so much of this film that really just does not work. That's in between those parts that do work so a real mixed bag. A rollercoaster ride kind of that amusement park ride at universal studios so for that. I'm going to give King Kong two and a half stars out of four two and a half stars on my skill admitted it had all of the tools are all of the talent to make a winning picture here but it just could not get it quite together and I think the rushed production and the unclear vision of what exactly that they wanted to make. It probably was shifting on a day-to-day basis. Depending on what parts of the had working at any given time it resulted in a clunky production that eventually became a clunky feature film and so two and a half stars is the best. I can give King Kong. Even you know it's kind of a guilty pleasure because it is just one of those kinds of movies that you can watch and enjoy for the things that you like. You ignore the things that you don't. If you have your own thoughts on King Kong that you want to impart you can reach me at my website. You can go to quip. Stir Dot net. Twip S. T. E. R. Dot net bindings. My twitter feed my facebook page. My instagram email. Their emails probably the best bet to get in touch with be by your there. I do encourage check out my other reviews including reviews of the nineteen thirty three version as well as the two thousand five version. That was done later by Peter Jackson. So I have all of that reviewed at my website. Quips your dot net for next week? You're probably well ahead of me. I wouldn't be reviewing this movie as an eighties film if I weren't going to be talking about it's follow up. It came out ten years after King Kong almost to the day it is called King Kong lives and yes King Kong does live by the way it is King Kong in the nineteen eighty six film as for how and why I will get into that on the next episode because he sure as heck did seem like he died at the end of this one so King Kong lives from Nineteen ninety-six on the next episode. So even if you don't watch it I do encourage you to listen to that review because I do have a lot to say about it until next time. Thank you so much for listening and joining me on this trip around the world in eighties..

"Anthropologist from Princeton University? He's does away because he's curious. If the reports of giant primate residing there are true so along the way they also pick up another unexpected passenger in this woman named Juan. She's this aspiring American actress who is adrift in a lifeboat that they scoop up on the way to their destination and what they find on that island instead of usable oil is a guerilla six times the size of a normal Abe. He is the God to which the native villagers on the island sacrifice their women of which doin becomes the next in line so Khong. He takes a liking to Doin- and he doesn't kill her and instead he ends up getting captured by the PETRIC's people who planned to take him back to the United States to gain publicity and money for their corporation by exploiting this giant ape. This kind of a plot hole here that kind of bothers me the they actually get the massive King Kong transported to the ship's hold without any explanation as to how they actually do this now. Problems arise when the APE goes back to New York and he escapes and he begins destroying the city. Searching for. Doin' I suppose there's more to the story than that. But that's basically the setup and pretty much everybody knows the King Kong story if you're a sinophile of any measure now. Dino de la Renta's thought his version of King Kong was going to be even bigger than jaws which was a massive hit the number one biggest money earner of all time at least at that time and it would be bigger than Josh not only because King Kong was known property. Everybody knew but because of the appeal of its monster intrinsically to the story no one really shed a tear for the sharks death jaws after seeing his King Kong Dino felt everyone was going to be walking out of the theater crying and his tongue was not going to be the scary monster movie but it was going to be a tragedy and initially dino conceived of convert differently he was not going to be fully an APE. He was more like an ape man like inbetween human and an eighth the missing link but giant-sized and and that was done primarily to make the love story much more plausible audiences would fall in love with his eight man just as much as the leading lady and in his version degreed of humankind is the actual monster king. Kong is the misunderstood victim now for the Director. Dino immediately obviously was going to seek out Steven Spielberg he had just made. Jaws was red hot but Spielberg didn't want to do another monster film to follow jaws and he also didn't think that King Kong ever needed to be remade to begin with he then asked Roman Polanski but Polanski didn't want to do a movie starring a giant monkey meals foreman Sydney Pollack Michael winner. Sam Peckinpah they all were asked but also passed and so that left John. Gilman Gilman was already working for Diller Rentis on another movie called the hurricane and Gillerman seemed much more of a natural fit to follow up the towering inferno which was large-scale special effects. Lead movie he could do King Kong kind of as a another disaster movie of a sort dentis was going to be very involved here. He served as his own line producer to ensure his film was going to be done his way and the shoot would occupy seven sound stages on the MGM. Lod including this fifty foot wall built on the back lot where the villagers reside to make their sacrifices to Kong. That wall required eight weeks to build and a cost alone. A million dollars of the budget stop motion. Photography Dino felt that that was not going to impress modern audiences he thought that the effects would need to be upgraded so renta Stockton. He could make kind of Kong as a puppet and he would be moving through miniature sets in front of blue screens but because jaws had a mechanical shark in audiences by that is real. He felt that they could make a robotic. King Kong Kinda liked jaws but much more state of the art as a way to go so they planned a two million dollar forty five foot high six and a half ton electronically controlled model of this ape. That can walk in strides of fifteen feet. Various parts of con- would also have to build arms and his hands and that would be used separately for different angles. Different ups designed all by Italian Craftsmen Carlo. Rambaldi designer Glen Robinson was hired.

"Today's is not from the nineteen eighties. But I'm talking about films which feature eighths as part of the mean character cast last week. I looked at Tarzan the eight-man This Week. I'm going to be looking at the keying of all of these kinds of films. Although it's a remake of the king it is from nineteen seventy six and it is called King Kong and the reason why I'm throwing it in here is because the next movie I'm going to be talking about. Is it sequel? But I'll get it to that towards the end of the show King Kong remake of course of the nineteen thirty three film this one featuring Jeff Bridges Jessica Lang and Charles Grodin John Randolph for neighbor Wa the Director of this film John Gillerman the screenplay credited to Lorenzo Simple Junior. It's PG film this pre existed of course by quite a bit the pg thirteen raiding. The runtime for this film is two hours and fourteen minutes now. Of course I like to talk about the making of these films when I started off my show and this is one of those movies. That has a lot of different people that claim that he came up with the idea of King Kong in their own way so I decided to do is to try to amalgamate some of these anecdotal stories to come up with kind of a plausible way. That the they could all be right and deliver it as kind of a seamless narrative. Hundred percent accurate. But it somewhere in there. The truth probably lies we start back in December of nineteen seventy four and that's when ABC. Networks Michael Eisner. He was watching nineteen thirty. Three's King Kong on television with his family and after it was done he remarked boy. What a great movie that that had been for. Its time flash forward once early. To mid April of Nineteen seventy-five Michael Eisner was watching. A preview of this Broadway show called clams on the half show review in that starring Bette Midler and there's a scene in that show in which midler appears atop the Empire State Building and she's in the palm of King Kong and then in their Michael. Eisner grew convinced that a remake was long overdue. So he brought up this idea to his old boss. Abc who had left to become paramount. Pictures Chairman. His name is Barry Diller but dillard did not display any kind of response no reaction to this idea eisner thought this was pretty typical for diller but a day later. Eisner decided to bring up the King Kong remake idea while he was having dinner with Sid Sheinberg is friend from MCI MCI happened to be the parent company of Universal Pictures and Sheinberg enthusiastically agreed that this would be a great idea. And after the success of one thousand seventy four's earthquake universal they were eagerly looking for additional films to market its vibration producing sense around soundsystem into theaters and Sheinberg suggested to one of the universal producers that King Kong would be a natural fit as their next picture so they sought out archea general to acquire the rights to remake their nine hundred thirty three classic on April Fifteenth. Nineteen Seventy Five. Universal felt that the scored a binding oral contract with this negotiating attorney. Who was working with Arche? Oh General for exclusive rights to remake King Kong and to produce one sequel now during this period. Or maybe even shortly afterward paramount's diller Barry diller. He suggested to independent Italian film producer. Dino de la Renta's della renters had recently moved his operations to the United States dealer began to talk to Dell rentis about possibly making a movie a monster movie on the level of jaws that was just about to be released into theaters that he can make for paramount and dino. He'd already been thinking about this because he had this notion of remaking King Kong in his mind seeing it day after day on this poster on his daughter. Francesca's wall prior to moving to Beverly Hills from New York. If Dylan just get it made Barry diller said paramount would agree to fund half of the twelve million dollars budget that they would allot for distribution rights. And I may sixth nineteen seventy five Dela rentis signed a King Kong deal with his personal friend. Tom O'Neil Tom. O'neil happened to be the head of Arche. Oh general and who really was the only one who had the rights to sign for this deal de la. Renta'S WOULD GIVE ARCHAIC. Oh two hundred thousand dollars and a percentage of the gross which was really what Tom O'Neil wanted. And that was the difference between him choosing delegates and universal who only wanted to give him a percentage of the prophets. Not The gross. After de la RENTA's put out giant trade ads announcing this deal. Universal filed a twenty five million dollar lawsuit against him and Arco for breach of contract for fraud and for international interference with advantageous business relations but universal was able to gain a lot of traction in court without a signed contract so the lawyers found a new tactic to try to gain the right to make their movie. They found out that prior to Arcos Film King Kong was made into a novelization by Daedalus W lovelace which was also serialised without a special copyright in the pages of mystery magazine and it was based on the Edgar Wallace and Marian C Cooper script to King Kong and not the final script. That was used for release in cinemas the Copyright Act of nineteen o nine stipulated that the rights holders of properties had to reregister every twenty eight years and the copyright to the book and Mystery magazine ceased in Nineteen Sixty because no one thought to renew the rights and therefore universal stipulated that the King. Kong concept was in the public domain. They did not need permission to proceed with their movie. In trying to beat to the punch universal announced a start date of January fifth nineteen seventy six they put in Hunt Stromberg to produce the Higher Joseph Sargent direct and to try to get around any additional copyright issues universal commissioned a bowl Goldman to adapt strictly the loveliest novelization. They were titled their proposed feature the Legend of King Kong and unlike the modern updating that was proposed by dentists universal plan to set their picture when the novel was written back in the nineteen thirties with the empire state building climax and similar stop motion photography that was used eventually for the movie. Courtesy of Jim Danforth. They would bring the Stop motion though this older style. Much more up to date. Susan Blakely and Peter Falk where already talks to have the inside track as the stars of the film? They were really rushing ahead and della rents is. He had to step on the gas. He had originally intended his production to start in April fifteenth. So he was going to get it as close as possible to try to shoot some footage before universal started. There's the closest he could get was January fifteenth just ten days after universal started. There's he hoped he that he could get his king. Kong into theaters before universal or in the interim stop them altogether because he was going to file a ninety million dollars countersuit for infringement while arche also sued universal for five million dollars in damages and in their case they wanted universal to cease production on their version of King Kong altogether in response to Universal's title of the legend of King Kong. Dentists wanted to add his own subtitle in response called the legend Reborn de la Renta's then commission towering inferno poster artists John Burke to compose several mockups for the upcoming King Kong Dino burkey created with King Kong atop the World Trade Center and he liked it so much that it pretty much clinched this as the setting for the King Kong Climax de la Renta secured the services for the screenplay from Lorenzo semple junior who had just worked as screenwriter for Dino's very successful three days of the Condo or just the same year and element to stress the need to sample to differentiate the new film from the original film and that was to try to avoid getting critics to make fun of their movie for being just an expensive rehash kind of ironic here because critics instead complained that the new Khan was not enough like the original film so I guess there was just no winning in this battle but deputies he still wanted a modern take any wanted to emphasize the beauty and the beast love story much more even if the formula remained fundamentally the same he was going to play to more modern audiences their sensibilities so simple also in to that modern and relevant King Kong structure because the nineteen seventies were known for a lot of message movies so he would put his own message in here of an environmental message against corporate exploitation now in simples plot there's gasoline corporation the trucks and they sent out this expedition to this uncharted island near Micronesia. That's been obscured by perpetual Fahd and they want to find out if there's going to be any oil deposits there stowing away on the ship is Jack Prescott. Who is this.

Reviews: Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake
"Let's move on to what we're playing. As I mentioned last week I was playing three with. What's the matter we're excited to talk about? All the reflect I played resident evil three beats and even though I did enjoy a lot at the I ended up being ultimately pretty disappointed. I think compared to Ari too. It is half the game that Ari to was and you spend lot of the time sort of retraining. The same ground. That are a two did in those much. Less exploration much less puzzle solving so the whole experience was dislike points in your adult life. You would have been like thank God. This game is short and really fun just one moment in time and what you have more time at home and more time to play games. I don't care to play games. Amount of time spent a long office hours making house. I do not have time to play games. They have the exact same amount of time as I did. When my son was six months old always as a relief to have like a cool short action game I really liked it and I liked the compactness of it. That does not mean that. I think it's right to put it out like six dollar price tag but yeah I feel that way about a lot of games. It's just like you've got residential one reservoir to resonable threes like not. It's just not as substantial as as those first few games and this was their chance to fix that and add more to it. I don't know teenage. Did you ever beat it. I haven't played it yet. I'm missing out on for sure. No spoilers about it but I did like I did like the final boss fight in resonable three other. That was pretty cool. There's a lot of Good Gore. Do you like the part where those Insects lay eggs in your mouth. That was cool. I ever greater whatever the name for the new types the head crab things like go over your your head like a like A. It's like in Peter Jackson's King Kong. When the WORM GOBBLES UP Andy Circus? It's like that yeah. I hate that part. I know yeah parts back but the rest of US are at least seventy. Five percent of us are now playing final fantasy seven. Actually all this all right. Are we all playing that now Cool this doesn't happen very often. We're all in the same game seriously. Yeah it's great. I played through chapter one last night. Barely started chapter two when my son decided he was done with this whole sleeping thing. So that's all I want to play. You don't have to slam anymore. But I can't play when he's awake Sam. That's the problem. What about that little rocker that you have next to the game console? He looks looks. It is true it is true that you have the small window of time where he can't move around yet so just face them away from the TV. But we're we're well past that yes anyway. I can't speak to as much. I liked the first chapter. It's very very linear very hand holding. You don't really get freedom to do much but from what I got to experience the combat system. I liked it bouncing back and forth between the characters Tina. You're much further along than anybody. What what do you think of? I think I'm in chapter eight or nine actually now And I'm obsessed with it and this is actually exactly the game that I want in quarantine where it's super lengthy. There's a storyline that I think hook onto some of the dialogue is laughable or not the dialogue but like the character dynamics between each other. It's just like cheesy friendships. But some of them are cute and fun in their occasional dialogue moments. That are funny to End The combat is good. I've seen a lot of people talk about how it's kind of confusing at first. So it's interesting David your early on but you're enjoying it. Maybe it's just People used to the term based structure more than that but I think it melds the two really well especially if like if you know final coming into it. And you don't have to learn about things like the All the magic abilities that you have or summons and what that stuff means like how some of those like upgrade systems work. It's much easier just to jump in and not have to learn all of that Independently of anything else. So I'm familiar with Real easy for me and it was really nice to kind of jump back into those familiar structures so I think I think one of the things that I would love to have infancy. Seven is what Dragon Age had. Which is the tactics ability so you can go in and actually premier companion members and how what their behaviors are in accordance to what battle scenarios there
The Monster Movie Hall of Fame and 'The Invisible Man'
"Later in the show. I'll have an interview with Lebron L. The writer director of the new updated edition of the invisible man. A movie that shifts the perspective of the classic horror movie to the victim in this case played by the Amazing Elizabeth Moss when Elsa Clever Jonah craftsman and we had a fun chat about how he's reinventing the work of the historic universal monster movies and some of his aides filmaker. Heroes like James Cameron and Paul Hogan and John Carpenter but I I am joined by ringer contributor and one of the best film minds around Adam Neiman. Thanks for joining me Adam. Thanks for having me Adam. We're here to build another wing in the movie hall of fame. Today we said post and beam on the monster movie hall of fame. Now you know monster. Movies are tricky because there are two distinctions between them. One is your classical scare movie that enrapture audiences but maybe doesn't really mean very much and then. The other is the load-bearing bearing metaphorical monster that communicate something to the world about maybe it's ills or human psychology or things of that nature I assume that you are more fan of the latter. But May maybe that's not the case. I think I'm a fan of the ladder when it's less calculated You know the the joke I liked to tell his one day. Someone's GonNa make really good specific movie about a social problem like documentary and then at a press conference the director. She's going to be like this movie's a metaphor for zombies and just waiting for someone to do but I mean I think that in the last couple years because you have some like Jordan. Peele who has spoken not in terms of monster movies but in terms of horror movies. He's talked about you. Know his office for those social thrillers or Social Horror Movies and the metaphorical dimension to them. And so you know because monsters are a subset of horror movies as you say a delivery device for for scares those streams often do cross but yeah. I think some of the best monster movies of all time are definitely ones where monsters represent something whether it's something inside or outside society or something inside or outside people but I'm also just a a big fan of movies. Where like spooky things jump out at people in eat them? So it's a IT'S A. It's a fine balance before we get started on constructing this this list that we've put together here. Do you remember your first monster movie experience at the movie. That felt like a monster movie to me and I mean it it is a monster is when Pinocchio gets swallowed by the whale. Oh yeah which is. Obviously you know I mean there's a biblical reference there to to Joan in the whale and it's You know like for for for kids. Who Who who see Pinocchio? That whale is just nightmarish and terrifying and and gigantic. I mean my dad. I think that's the first movie he ever told you to. Took me to it. Just absolutely scared the hell out of me that and the giant squid in Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. Same thing oh great both Some Disney spun con there. Well done by in and and you. Well I'm thinking about Pinocchio as you say it and the thing that scared me more than the whale is the sequence in which the boys turn into donkeys boys which is just absolutely disturbing and also kind of metaphorical in its way Not to put too fine a parasite point on it I'm trying to think of my first true scary movie experience. I feel like what I got two young Frankenstein before I got to Frankenstein in. It's funny. How when something like that happens how it can obscure your relationship to movies and I think it actually made me Not so much scared movie theaters but just just sort of happy and smiling and laughing. I tend to laugh at horror movies and monster movies because I get kind of perverse thrill out of them and I so I if young Frankenstein. Ken Count that would be. That would be my number one. I mean obviously. I saw a bunch movies that we'll talk about here on this list that a very young age. And maybe that's an opportunity to just go right into it. So here's what we're going to do. We'RE GOING TO GO CHRONOLOGICALLY. So there's a long history. I would say monster. Movies are essentially as old as movies themselves. So we're going to try to walk through. Essentially I don't know eighty ninety years of movie history and try to capture. What are the absolute most representative interesting compelling fascinating monster movies ever made and the monsters? I think the conversation should really be about the monsters inside of the movies and why they're so effective as devices for either sending those messages or just scaring the shit out of us. So you chosen five. I've chosen five. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA Ariffin vamp little bit. Why don't you give me your first pick going all the way back to the nineteen thirties? Sure and you know it's interesting because now when we've got it arranged chronologically we've got this this interesting blindspot which. Kinda be filled in as we go along. Which is we've both bypassed. The true initial cohort of Universal Monster. Movies right the very late twenties very early thirties because the first movie on my list is King Kong. So I have bypassed Dracula Frankenstein you know bride of Frankenstein Which are all these enduring literary properties that have been made and remade for a long time and I think the thing about King Kong. It just feels like the primal scene for me of monster as spectacle because he's not human sized right. He's not an actor costume he's not You know someone doing an accent or wearing makeup. He's a special effects creation and the thing about the original King Kong. Every time I watch it is. It is just so spectacular visually. In an analog era. You know the the integration of those stop motion special effects into old sets and the exaggerated camera angles on the actors and just the the surrealism of it. I've read that. The actual surrealists the the practicing artists within that within that movement re huge fans of King Kong for one thing. 'cause monster just keeps changing size. You know it's inconsistent it's inconsistent but it's also just stunning because from scene to scene you know when he's just represented by giant hander giants foot or the close ups on the is and then you can also still cut backing these establishing shots and seeing him in these different environments and. I think it's the way also that it goes from this primal island to this urban city. The monster in his home context. And then sort of you know thrashing around in the middle of maternity causing chaos. It's just like the deepest the deepest core horror fantasy. You know that that that I can think of I. I just think it's absolutely astonishing and I never tire of watching it. It's funny I think a lot of the monsters on our list Get repeated and reused and re contextualize over and over again the thing with King Kong is is the actual character of King Kong comes up over and over and over and over again. We're getting another King Kong movie this year. And for whatever reason I would say between King Kong and Godzilla. Those are really the only two significant monsters that we never tire of somehow. That don't don't expire. You know I think that the idea behind what King Kong represents and there's obviously been an extraordinary amount of both academic critical just fun writing about What happens when colonialists enter a less developed world and attempt to steal things from it But in addition to that it is this grand spectacle and we talk a lot on the show about is. It doesn't move. You have a reason to be seen in a movie theater. Then I feel like the original King. Kong is is one of the landmark achievements and you have to see this on a giant screen. There's nowhere else for to be seen. We'll for sure. I maybe just in terms of bridging King Kong with those other brand name monsters of the period he in genders the same kind of complex sympathy. That you have with Boris. Karloff Frankenstein. Right I mean you even have a rhyme in those two movies wherein Frankenstein. He picks the little girl up by the river without doing what he's doing. And you know drowns her accidentally and certainly king kongs intentions towards Aren't violent. They're they're in his sort of chivalrous or desirous or somewhere in between there. I think the reason he endures an even the point that God's Zilla as a character eventually got bent in King kongs direction because the original godzillas dot anthropomorphized sympathetic at all. And then over the years. And they made Godzilla more like King Kong. I think being inside that sort of like destructive force but you're also misunderstood and you're more a victim of circumstance than anything else that's a really appealing escapist fantasy for filmgoers even thinking the original King Kong as terrifying as it is and as brutal as the violences like a people have never seen it. He smush is people into Goo on screen. You know You're still with him and I think that that's a really great monster. Movie needs on some kinds of great monster movies that you need that possible level of identification or sympathy. So it's not just purely a nightmare. I think the original King Kong does that just just amazingly well. So you're next pick actually doesn't do the former thing that you were just describing which is there's no crushing there's no Gu. There's no absolute violence of a kind in your next week. What's your next movie? The next movie I have is is cap. People which is part of a cycle of really low key atmospheric horror movies produced in the mostly in the nineteen forties. Bhai guy named Val Luton and I would say that if you get a chance to see Ken. Jones documentary thou loot man in the shadows. I think it's the best documentary I've ever seen about a filmmaker at particularly about how Luton changed horror movies by using the lack of a budget. And the lack of franchise -able characters. You Know He. He didn't have the roster that universal was working with all these all star. You know horror icons so he made it less more. It's the it's the the the the cinema of of of suggestion and scary around the edges. But it's also movie about people transforming into cats I. It's a booby that plays the the ambiguity of is this or isn't this real up. You know for for a long time but it really does give over to the idea that the main character the heroin does when stimulated or afraid you know actually transform into A cat due to this this this Eastern European mysticism and it's also a movie. I'm sure they'll come later. That gets remade in the eighties and completely liberalised because instead of just talking with someone turning into a cat or remembering someone turning into a cat you actually see it on screen with with special effects and it's It's less effective to me. Do you do you like the Paul schrader version that you're describing the eighties version. I like the Paul schrader version. Because it's wild acid trippy. Paul schrader horror movie. And it's it's glory and it's actually not as full-on like latex hydraulic special effects. His other movies from the period. But I I love the original are you are you. Are you fond of the delude films directed by Jacques Turner? Who did a bunch of the other ones is it a? Is it a a a source of Phantom for you it is? I saw cat people and the Leopard men in a couple of them many many years ago and then actually over Halloween this year my wife and I were looking and you know as I get older Halloween. Getting more and more difficult to program. If we're not gonNA rewatch something. But we watched a couple movies. We watched The criterion collection had the ghost ship which I had never seen which I thought had. It has a very similar approach to kind of What's happening in the shadows? Which is most of his films are using that strategy of not showing the thing and then I watched by myself. The body snatcher and both of them. I thought were pretty great. I mean I this is also a case where I I. I probably saw Kent Jones's documentary before seeing any of the films and while that was a great thing for my film education it also kind of warped perception of the movie because I was seeing it as a kind of intellectual exercise in a way where I understood technique as opposed to some of these other movies that we're GonNa talk about here where I just happened to be nine years old when I saw it in a completely reorganized my brain chemistry in a way but I do like his movies. And especially this one that you've chosen well and then also just the last thing to say but it may be that because it's not special effects and spectacle it anticipates where horror movies would go in the sixties with the idea of the monster within right. I mean here. It's not a an invading apor vampire. It's the idea of a woman who's subconscious and her inner life motivates this transformations client about the link between monstrous and desire and monstrous and repression. Which is why it tends to be. You Know Pretty Beloved Academically but I mean by the sixties. Neither US talk about these movies. But you start having the idea of the human monster in movies like psycho or whatever else and you can kind of trace aligned from the way cat. People stages horror towards that stuff. I think I think that's right. And I think it's probably a capitals nifty double feature with the peg for this film the invisible man because that movie is also as much about.

Look into brain stuff. Production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff. Lauren both Obama here. If you're considering a summer vacation to fictitious land then skull island isn't eco-tourism dream. Come true they are. You can avoid the genetic mischief of drastic parks Isla New bar end the radioactive horror of monster island but still visit a place where prehistoric creatures thrive in the wild skull island. Sometimes sometimes called. Kong's island is home to perplexing array of organisms as captured in the nineteen thirty three film King Kong and its sequels and remakes. It houses everything everything from native populations of Homo Sapiens to dinosaurs like tyrannosaurus and stegosaurus. And then there's the Ape Lord himself King Kong. Ah Unlike the dinosaurs tear soars and please sores palm. Island Kung doesn't quite line up with any known prehistoric beast even gigantic pethick. As the largest known primate of all time stood no more than ten feet tall. That's about three meters Kung however stands at least eighteen feet or five and a half meters tall in the nineteen eighteen thirty three film and is even taller in some telling 's sizing up like this can prove something of a risky move evolutionary speaking bigger bodies come with increased energy demands and body changes to keep everything from falling apart noted zoologist r McNeill Alexander once explained the King Kong would collapse under under his own weight. He'd be a hundred and twenty five times the volume of a real ape loaded with one hundred and twenty five times the weight but on the physical frame of a typical guerrilla. His legs simply wouldn't be able to support him. Essentially you can't just scale up creatures size and expect it to function the same way plus an apelike Kong might be big enough to defeat all its fellow beasts in a brawl but couldn't cope with climate change habitat loss or the destructive tendencies of human civilization. Even if he somehow could support weight being big isn't enough to cope with these other dangers. Priest titans like gigantic pickus and the giant Slavs present a valuable lesson in the vulnerability of life as giant land mammals national geographic ones pointed out that based on computer modeling of Heights. Every species species has an effective upper limit of size and the closer they evolved toward that size the greater the risk of extinction. Perhaps that's why King Kong is typically described as the last of his kind even skull island seems incapable of supporting a robust population of rampaging giant apes. Not only would he be considered an an endangered species. He's also what's often referred to as functionally extinct because let's face it. Kong species is at a dead end despite an alleged had sun cong popping up from time to time the population of this species has clearly dipped well below the threshold for genetically stable reproduction in other words. If there are female cones out there the resulting offspring would be subject to the sort of lack of genetic diversity that leads to genetic disorders and eventually extinction and Kong's not alone. Several real life species exist in the state of impending doom including the Baiji a freshwater dolphin once found in the Yangtze River. We've we've even seen a recent example of a last known member of a species succumbing to extinction George the last Hawaiian tree snail who died in captivity on January first of two thousand nineteen George No giant but his death highlights the lesser known plights of extinction that of snails and slugs amphibians face a similar crisis and in both cases there are inevitable ripple effects throughout the

A female gorillas found in the surgeries visited to save King Collins Life and it stars an early Linda. Hamilton low. Yes during the her attorney is actually two years after terminator.

No animated no automated knowing automated. So then we go to two thousand five the black king call. Yes us Peter Jackson's modern remake. The thirty three I would say yes. I'm like that movie. I thought it was good too. I what I was thinking of the to the original this Orange County I think is interesting about it is put the King Calms Against Each Other. You know the seat that transition from nineteen thirty three seventy six this to two thousand five and see how that all goes you know. Of course the animatronic suits five as against newer newer the CGI stuff taking it becomes a cartoon. Well not live action stuff. But it's really the new stuff when I put my drastic talk some of those new ones but watching it it looks real so then we have twenty seventeen in King Kong skull that is the best of all clan. Samuel Jackson. One really liked cop. Yeah Yeah shake laugh. Yeah and Adlon was the first of the Monster Mc you rather trite at tight end to an eventual showdown with the new Godzilla. So Ah I liked it. They're trying to build that whole cinematic universe kind of like what marvel had really good cast John Goodman Samuel so I need to relearn that because I tried to watch it on. DVR Did and I tried to watch it. And I did not. You didn't like it. I didn't didn't hold my attention. So I need to revisit I thought it was boring. So yeah he has a he does have a lot of guys doing Cox. After you're talking John Antsy the Johnson he was getting I would vote. Yes Bob Young. Yeah I'm going to say no. But you guys nights overriding Gary. I thought it was okay. So what's the premise. Like how much is as good. Call John Move. You're not a good tip. It's a good call movie. King Kong waterline recognize way. Make money. It wasn't a flop look. Look I'm looking like whenever you raise what. I'm sorry. I was very six point six monster movies movies in general. I don't think you will as far as broad. Who says the John C Reilly cared your lots of shake laugh? If you you guys are GonNa push me. I'll probably wasn't low said no because the fact that talk of doing the main was low key or was I was GONNA say. Yeah okay. Maybe it was the two thousand five one was that Adrian Brodie that was I think the main good guy that was trying to save the right. Yeah no I'm nice and I kind of thought that maybe this will at least not really seeing a lot of remorse promo on the Godzilla vs Com twenty did have pay off after the credits credits on that. One where they reference Godzilla just like in the recent Godzilla King of monsters movie. The payoff was a reference to king. Kong anything could have been uncover. So are we are we gonNA see. She's all tank top. Converse is GONNA get one. Oh absolutely you're going to say it's a combination of they say. Oh I've been watching just because I watch pretty much everything. Let them come out. But I don't have those I won't go in and expecting Oscar worthy but I think it will be entertaining for that. Sean how would you how. What do you think it'll be rigged against the regular king? Congress say thirty thirty three and seventy six. I mean considering how. CGI has advanced from a visual perspective. It's going to be awesome awesome. You'RE GONNA look like a real dinosaur versus you know really giant gorilla origin now. This story and the premise May. But when I go into these movies I'm going to expecting a lot of cool. All cloverfield it. Oh Yeah so get thumbs up I with them for the upcoming unseen unseen movie. Yes thumbs up on scene. Are you counting down. Yes okay unseen yes. I'm in Paris. So the tally is We had five all right so six junior six bob three Gary Four Scott three and I had said to Gary Wins. Yeah I went over. But that's my thought was going to be going in right so right. Yeah that is and I do think it's interesting. The all the ones that the original premise mated aided and that's the three I thought it would make it look like the nineteen thirty when I had a really long time. I've watched it so I was in my twenties. I'd have to watch that one but I put it in just because the one from seventy six like I said that's what I love the one. I'm I'm watching it. Yeah in the same way. I would see that like in the guide. I'm watching. Yeah I need to revisit that 'cause I remember it being bad so maybe I need to REC- out think it was great leg Brooklyn animatronic so from a visual perspective again. It's certainly suffers from by. Compare John What we know is right. Yeah but the good solid kids. It's good when I was a kid and I even when I'm looked at as a kid you see around stuff it didn't have no this. This joint room. Yeah exactly yes sale. I think what I thought was interesting is that you know I would call. Jessica rang an amazing actress. Yeah I think she's. She's she's really hasn't really interesting but to see that. Yes you see her in that movie and and she's not that great which makes me wonder okay. was she playing the part to not be that you know that. Meryl Streep auditioned for that role and got turned down. Because Dino diller into stuff. She's too ugly real. He said that. Wow you might have been right there on in comparative religion. Turn drop dead gorgeous. That would be that would have been the time for streep was all French. Lieutenant's woman up so for them. I mean that was free Kramer versus Kramer three me.

I really thought that there were more in my my brain. I was thinking there the whole lot more with Gut Silla now. I have like twenty five movies knowing that there's ten I would probably say there's probably you read. That are really worth their man. I really oversold okay now before before we get into your list. This does kind of tie into into one of the movies that was released this year. which was Godzilla King of monsters which we discussed during our movies? How much I love the one with eleven and beer formica? Uh Now that's why I brought this up because Gary our special guests had some hot sports opinions on what he thought of that until now I thought the movie was greatness. Did you like it as much as the wall. Walter White I liked it more than a walter white go has and like we talked about this during the movies movies. How many the king monsters movie actually focused on the monsters and the humans were just kind of background noise? which is what I wanted? That's what I want out of my monster movie. They want they have the technology for today available to them the shot the whole thing driving rainstorms. They show US purposely us. We'll just a bunch of rain around it so that nobody can see how bad is known about the fares. You're gone that. How long did the matthew undergo no that would suck again? That Godzilla look really weird. It was it was bad movie and also I didn't include the things that were like cartoon movies made for TV because the others. I didn't even know there was Hongmei there as well on would you consider. Hey baby very mighty joe is that's not collect generic son Ofcom. That's we don't have I I don spoilers spores okay. So we'll start off gotTA start off with the King of the King Kong movies original thirty three arcade race with Fay wray you know. And the Fast Talkin about it is a movie that is it it it is a holiday in it holds up. That's what I haven't seen this forever doesn't again really does. Yes because my daughter talk back and watch the Batman movies. He's Batman movies. I couldn't believe that they don't terms. His cowl doesn't move terms. I've talked about this before our I watched the The day the Earth stood still the original and I was like well. I'm going to watch it because I'm supposed does do. It's supposed to be something you know going the giant robot. Yeah and the and it was an amazing movie. I think serving classics like John Wayne Stagecoach the John Ford movie is just it. It's a good movie regardless of the year it was filmed and and it holds up so I think the original King Kong. That's why I almost picked just one because I don't think you need anything else after that. So we're all in agreement though that that one account and I think that if you if you do see the king original King Kong you need to see the edited version of the movie because there is a whole lot taking 'cause favorite whoops amount. No I don't know but there are some scenes where the waters I don't see what I think But you know I think that there's there's issues with it that were not completely pc. See the way. I bet there's also a lot of violence that has taken out of the movie. That is a lot of people being bitten into smash on the ground stuff like that. That's when it came out was it G. rated I interest rate writings. Wanted to like the sixties again. Uh Yes we give that one a class that absolutely as gasket and the next one. I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to ask for a little leeway and I'm GONNA say some call Okay and the the only reason I'm gonna say someone comes because it was a movie it was made. I think what the next year now when I said Sunup Congre Hong earlier joke. I really was moving off under our donkey Kong junior but it was the legitimate sequel king colony that they go back to the island and the whole thing and they the son of Kong nineteen thirty. Three a lot of the sets are rehashed. Used over again But I through the end and just because it's it's almost the same day But I would not vote for it. Okay I didn't even know it was all right tale of two thousand sixty to thirty years that he can call me. Can you believe to King Kong vs Godzilla did that because Godzilla zillow was popular at the time and they were looking for a monster to match up to it now. I'm probably going to be the lone yes here. But Godzilla vs King Kong is one of my. I know what it is. I think it's fun. And if the idea of you know these two iconic beasts east yeah movie monsters to the whole Yeah John was yes I would count that color. Plus Oh yeah the album the first one in color you know. We'll get to see King Kong. Dan You know. See The guy in the suit given King Kong all all right then we go to nineteen sixty seven with King Kong escapes.

I'm in native American settlements but since the fresh ones are so tasty who will move on to win they appeared in Manhattan or as it was known at the time do Amsterdam at that point. It was marketed by Dutch bakers under a name. I can't pronounce. But which means Oily Kate. We're now going to the mid nineteen hundreds when a baker are put nuts like almonds in the center of the pastry in areas where it might not fully baked from this. The name don't was born at the time. It was spelled spelled D. O. U. G. H.. But Americans have shortened it to do in ut both are accepted but now you know how to quiet your snooty neighbor if they wanNA to make an issue of it as for how the hole in the center of the doughnut. There's several theories including one about ships captain who impaled one on the wheel but there's no oh definite answer so I'll just leave it there in one thousand nine hundred twenty in New York. A Russian emigrant built a machine that could make donuts automatically while he probably we didn't have a sign in the window proclaiming. That hot doughnuts are available. The public quickly found out about them and his business was a huge success. Eventually grossing twenty five million dollars a year. That's about three hundred ninety million in today's dollars. In addition to tasty doughnuts customers could also watch the doughnuts being made made as the Dow dropped into the oil and move down the line cooking as they went along through movies us stories and a world's fair everyone learned about doughnuts. Oh Nuts Joe. Lebow however learned about failure. He had made his way from New Orleans to Paducah Kentucky where he sold a secret recipe the Ishmail L. Armstrong a one with the name crispy cream. Tell me you see that coming. Armstrong headed to Winston Salem North Carolina where he began selling selling crispy cream donuts on July thirteenth. Nineteen thirty seven to local grocery stores. He then built the business into a small chain and put engineers to work developing a more efficient production line. The stores were mostly in the southeast. But in one thousand nine hundred ninety six a store opened in where else. Manhattan in two thousand crispy. Cream began offering stock to raise money for even more growth. Then there's this other little company called Dunkin donuts or as it calls itself today Dunkin Fun fact in southeast Missouri. There's a bakery called Dunkin donuts named after the county where it's located another store during that same name is in Pennsylvania Dunkin began in nineteen fifty and like crispy it grew into an international operation. Dunkin hopes to have fifteen thousand stores by next year. Crispy has about a thousand stores earlier. This year food network set out to pick the best doughnut any state eight in Tennessee. That prize went to the King Kong at five daughters bakery and frankly the product takes three days to make assuming you're now on your way to a bakery bakery. I'll give you one more chance to reconsider some donuts. have up to seven hundred calories crispy creams double dark chocolate. Donut comes comes packed. With three hundred and seventy calories and twenty six grams of sugar. I could tell you more about the health benefits doughnuts but do any of us really want to know I thought so. And finally it's
Who Would Win: The Death Star vs. Unicron
"Another episode of who would win a show that completely ignores anything important happening in the world and instead focuses on the fictional battle between two characters from the world of comic sci fi and fantasy. I'm your host james gadsden ozzie and as always i'm joined by my co host race aquinas ray. We've had some titanic that was before but i believe today's battle. Maybe the biggest one we've ever had. I'm glad lead you said it because we've never had a battle of the proportion of this one. We're talking planetary level literally literally early planetary level. This is a wild one to do. I actually have a planetary level of hatred for one of the characters today. Can you guess which one will since the death star. I'm going to assume yuna krahn correct. You know why i know why would you have any with the planet eater. Here's the deal okay as we all know so. I have a lot of admiration respect men love if you will for our savior hopeful presidential candidate for twenty twenty maybe twenty before mega truck leader of the septic. We were both huge mega tron fans right and we're both still very angry about that battle against king kong going the wrong way right. I have no idea how you lost that and i feel like a tortured soul for going against megaton but you know i had to do it but here's the deal i really i really i <hes> i'm so emotionally i guess so much angst against unicorn but what does that do with megatrend in utica. What are we talking here. Here's the deal was the last time we saw mega tron in the nineteen nineteen hundred cartoons during the g one correct and that would be transformers the movie which featured unique ron. That's right and what what did you do to matron. He killed him and he brought him back as galveston. That's i wouldn't say he killed him. He sort of just he was almost eddie saying i can still function i'm good he kind of got absorbed by macron and then remade as galveston right so matron bottom line disabuse gone he was pretty much done with the transformers universe the universe anyway that moment correct until he came back and later forms later series absolutely but give me fair you were going to take anything away from galveston right now. He's voiced by leonard nimoy and i will never go against spock doc okay. Here's the deal there's nothing against leonard nimoy or or you know spock when there's a jackpot. Is it the mega millions or the galvin million i would. I would take either okay you. You have no money so of course but here's a deal mega. Tron is the leader of the deceptive cons what happened when galveston took over what happened. The deceptive accepted cons. They went downhill. They had to re- reformed again. That is absolutely correct. That's right so they were also in service to ukraine who got blown out right. So what are they doing like the yeah horrible horse to the right star bingo. Today's battle for me is personal and i am gunning for yuna ron sherve the autobahn. Kinda took them out but i'm going to do it even better with the deaths. Are i mean i don't see how based on what i know about both the death star and unicom but i'm excited sighted to hear you try okay ray. I've really gone deep of the research in in my hand. I have an envelope now.
'No Room For The Modest Hit Anymore': Broadway Prepares For Summer Closings
"Broadway is coming off a record season in terms of attendance and box office receipts with twenty nine shows to choose from right now. Five of those shows though including some big budget disappointments agents are going to close over the next two weekends jeff london explains broadway attendance was up fourteen percent between twenty eighteen twenty nineteen generating one one point eight three billion dollars in ticket sales. It's been a great year for broadway and that's true if you're one of the producers of a blockbuster show but not everyone is i've been invited to the party says jeremy gerard who's been covering broadway as a reporter and critic for over three decades when he tallied up the eleven shows that opened in close this season though shows accounted for something like one hundred and forty million dollars in investment and that's a huge number at a time time when we're seeing these blockbuster shells and more reports of higher and higher box office grosses that tells me that we're in trouble that there's no room for the modest hit more several shows always close right after the tony awards if their box offices soft and they haven't won any any tony's and that happened with three shows this year charlotte saint martin president of the broadway league the organization that represents producers in theater owners. She says every summer shows close. We have a history of summer closings that goes back forever in two thousand fourteen. There was six in two thousand twelve. There was it's eight but this year there are more and what's unusual is that instead of hanging onto labor day to cash in on tourist dollars. Five musicals are closing in the next two weekends king kong which bumped up the losses significantly because it cost a staggering thirty six point five million dollars the prom tom pretty woman the share show and be more chill. Jerry gehring is a lead producer of that show. Who's cast album enjoyed more than two hundred million streams before a sold out run off broadway last summer but it never found real traction on broadway. It was a lot of factors like a lot of shows. We didn't get the tony love. We didn't get a straight across. Critical response. Broadway is incredibly expensive and you have to fill a lot of seats to to stem the losses. The producers decided to close in mid august because a lot of its target audience teams. Go back to school now before labor day gearing. Thanks says there are hoping to make back some of the nine million dollars they lost with a tour and licensing the broadway league's charlotte saint martin points out that most shows lose money four out of five shows don't recoup some don't lose all but don't recoup and yes. A lot of people lost a lot of money. There's no question that shows cost more in if they don't recoup. There's more money being lost but why so many this summer new york times critic ben brantley has a theory theory. All the shows were talking about the musicals at least including the unfortunate king kong. Just aren't that good so perhaps we're talking about discernment for wants what's journalist jeremy gerard has another theory. There are five shows lined up for every fever that becomes available and it's a seller's market. It's a market for vertu landlords and they want the big hits in there so i believe that they're putting a lot of pressure on producers of shows that are under performing to cut bait as is quickly as possible to get potential new hit him for example after kinky boots closed this spring moulin rouge moved right into the same theater and it's a smash hit for n._p._r. News i'm jeff london in new york.
Disney World should ban childless millennials, mom says in rant
"Well because remember talking about this latest story with this the mother of a young child I don't know if she's a single mom I don't know what her situation is but I know re mom turns out but go ahead yes so she went on a Facebook rant that is got in it completely a viral now and so many stations and news outlets are covering this story about how she is bashing up millennials or childless millennials to be more specific about how they should be banned from Disney world and not allowed to go because they're ruining it for others so you and I can go to Disney world according to her she would like us to be banned because one or millennials and two we don't have children as she thinks that there will not even their money elsewhere your house doesn't matter it's a bit of your home or with their dog mom you're not a dog there's no such thing yes there is if there was any point to be a wall number one right off the bat let's take a call six one seven two six six sixty eight sixty eight have you ever gone to Disney without having kids in tow I have so many comments on this I have so many thoughts I'm trying to find the woman's exact comments like I know one one she was upset because you want to get a kid a Mickey pretzel yeah and the line was so long because so many waffles types were standing in line to get a Mickey pretzel in her kid was screaming and she's a congradulations jerks you've got my kids screaming at Disney because you have to be here even though you don't have kids okay control your child skip the Mickey brats all come back in two minutes all I have it now I have the a I have the post I mean I can I will read the whole thing because it's super long let's say she says it pisses me off to no end when I see childless couples with without and then she meant to say children at Disney world Disney world is a family amusement park yet these immature millennials throw away their money on useless crap they have no idea the joy and happiness it is to mothers who by their babies treats and toys they will never experience the exhaustion that it is to chase a three year old around and getting stares at assuming I'm a bad mother and then it goes on and there's a lot of explicit and so forth that I can't read here but she basically says that she doesn't believe the millennial should be there without children and that they should be banned if they don't have children classic Facebook rant your let's hear it VB hot take time where I need like a flames or something lightning it somehow I yeah I'd like a flame thrower I don't think I have ever appropriate sound for US one of the S. waffles yes exactly she's not a hundred percent wrong is not a hundred percent right and all I had so many reasons why she's alright I can give you I'll tell you one hundred percent wrong alright let's do it now me you what you tell me why first why she's not wrong well first and foremost Disney is for kids so that's an accurate and I it's not accurate it's for kids so it's not grown ups are supposed to believe in flying crickets and kisses that bring people back to life you wanna hear in exact direct quote from the creator of Walt Disney okay the current owner of Walt Disney Walt Disney the creator of Walt Disney sure why he actually created the park this is it this is an actual quote here he stated your dead if you aim only for kids adults are only kids grown up anyway I get a wreck while I get that lightning do you because it sounds like you just go you did not what you just said I get it and I also get that these parks are short changing like I'm not to bring universal into this but when universal does this new King Kong thing while I work up and say Jeez I conduct a baby you're not allowed to go there because you're not I don't I was dialing the second you this is where you're at because the all weather she's not listening no I rotated around no I'm sorry it sees me eyes thank you face to face open your mouse ears lightning I'm listening you're listening with your nose is growing you see right in their waffles I do not lying so it's not dessert for most people you think of Disney and you think of a family of four when you think of that family of four at Disney you think of two kids that are getting tired that are hot that are hungry that are thirsty whatever and what you know is if you've ever been there lightning man those guys should have it in the way that rich people get fast Pat and celebrities get fast passes a Disney kids should have fast passes at at food and drink polls because they cannot wait and when they needed they needed now unlike the adult so this woman who's got the kid at the pretzel thing and she's thirty people back in the line because it's twenty nine waffles standing there they ought to be able to cut that line that kid is not you should have a panel yeah moved fast pass that's fine have a parent fast pass but you know what in order to say that's what I'm telling my secondly what why isn't she wanted these parents like every other parent with their strollers in the park to actually bring snacks and food and everything else because we know Disney as expensive as it is so why don't you you know what that is a special treat to have a pretzel that's fine the one it's just circle back when the lines a little bit shorter seven one what kind of loser over twenty two would ever go to Disney that seems personal line that is personal that is very personal I'm not even going to comment I don't think the word I can't say the words legally on the air you gonna go there for your honeymoon I wasn't get married there and I know that had to have been a consideration no it really wasn't actually family and friends and they can't all traveled down to

"And Tyson fury could have a potential rematch. Now, Deontay wilder is having a rematch with Lewis King Kong or TS here in September. Mike, you're the big boxing aficionado. I, I was stunned that Deontay wilder did what he did to Luis Ortiz. Well, I think is a very good boxer. So I like the fact that those are fighting again, but are you interested in wilder fury rematch, which I thought was a very close. I definitely am interested because I also gre- that it was a close fight. And I think it's, it's watchable you like it has you intrigued because it was. Closed. So let me ask you a question. What happened with Anthony Joshua? Who is he? He's fighting some no name guy like what happened there, man. I'm trying to see I believed that his opponent was hurt in, then this guy is a standing standing, and it's pretty much literally a standing guy any Joshua's, the Steve Gutenberg of boxing. It's like why did he become Tom Hanks? Like he could've right. He's right there. He could have been a huge movie star, and he did it who's ever managing Anthony, Joshua's careers during the horrible job, get them out there to be a huge star this while they're you spend two seconds or that dude's a super slow, he's trying to Anthony, Josh is making a lot of money, just in England, a lot of money in the police academy movies, but he's become a star even notice fight is a dud. But this is I fight in the US in New York. So he's trying. I'm with I'm with you, though. Deontay wilder is entertaining and must see television. So sign me up for whatever that dude does.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here on the northern coast of the Yucatan peninsula near the town of chick. Love. Mexico is a crater about one hundred twenty miles in diameter. That's about one hundred ninety kilometers the asteroid that created this crater was about six miles. That's ten kilometers wide and hit the earth sixty five million years ago in spite of these immense, measurements, the craters hard to see even if you're standing right on its rim to get a good map. Nasa. Researchers examined it from space. Ten years before the nineteen ninety discovery of the chick fil crater, physicists, Louise, Alvarez and geologist. Walter Alvarez, a father son team proposed a theory about the impact that we know today created it. They noted increased concentrations of the element iridium in sixty five million year old clay radium is rare on earth, but it's more common in some objects from space like meteors and asteroids, according to the Alvarez theory, a massive asteroid had hit the earth blanketing the world iridium, but shower of particles wasn't the only affect of the collision the impact caused fires climate change and widespread extinctions at the same time dime stores, which until then had managed to survive for a one hundred eighty million years died out, geophysicist Doug Robertson of the university of Colorado at boulder theorizes, the impact heated earth's atmosphere dramatically causing most big dinosaurs to die with an hours this mass extinction. Definitely happened fossil evidence shows that about seventy percent of species living on earth at that time. Became extinct. The massive die off marks the border between the Cretaceous and tertiary periods of earth's history. Which are also known as the age of reptiles and the age of mammals respectively today, scientists call the extinction decay t- event after the German spellings of Cretaceous and tertiary the t- event had an enormous effect on life on earth. But what would have happened if the asteroid hadn't missed would it have led to a world where people in dinosaurs would coexist or one in which neither could live. In a world where an asteroid whizzed past earth instead of crashing down with a force of a hundred million tons of TNT life could have progressed much differently. Sixty five million years ago, some of the animals and plants that are common today. We're just getting started these include placental mammals, which are mammals that develop inside a placenta in the womb and angiosperms, which are flowering plants insects that rely on flowers, such as bees were also relatively new many of these life forms thrived after the t- event, and without that mass reptilian extinction to clear the way they may not have found ecological niches to fill in this scenario. Today's world might be full of reptiles and short on mammals, including people. But even if the asteroid hadn't hit done stores and other Cretaceous life forms might have become extinct. Anyway, some dinosaur species had started to dwindle long before the asteroid's impact. This has led many researchers to conclude that the asteroid was just one aspect of a complex story. Other global catastrophes. Massive volcanic eruptions in what is now. India most likely played a role also the earth's changing landscape as the supercontinent Panja broke up into today's continents. Probably had something to do with it too. Then there's another argument that the chip to love asteroid hit the earth too early to have caused the extinction. Researchers Gerda Keller and Marcus Harding, both conclude that the impact took place three hundred thousand years before the end of the Cretaceous period. Keller theorizes chick fil impact was one of at least three massive collisions Harding argues at the iridium layer didn't come from the web asteroid but from another event such as series of meteors burning up in the atmosphere. He bases. This theory on ROY particles objected during the impact a most of these are in an older layer of the earth than the Katie iridium layer, according to both of these points of view the absence of the club. Asteroid strike may not have had a big affect on the k t extinction earth was a warm planet for most of the time that dinosaurs lived after the end of the Cretaceous period, the world got a lot colder and experienced several ice ages. Whether dinosaurs could have survived such change in climate is debatable. It's hard to come to a definitive conclusion about what the world would look like today without the chicks love impact. But the question of whether people in dinosaurs could have coexisted is a captivating won the ideas, president in everything from the Congo legend of mock lame Obembe to King Kong to the pervading kitsch of the Flintstones. Then of course, there's the prevailing scientific theory about the origin of birds that they are in essence dinosaurs that we are coexisting with today.

I don't give a damn that is Justin for inflation, by the way, but movies take at the box office is influenced by advocates distribution reviews. So box office may not be the best measure of a movies cultural influence to address that question. Researchers gave movies the big data treatment by analyzing the complex network of connections among forty seven thousand movies on the internet movie database IMDB, the popular movie site tracks every time a film has been referenced or spoofed featured a remade all factors that indicate a movies influence on subsequent films and by analyzing those connections with a handful of algorithms, including Google's page rank algorithm. The data scientists came up with a new number one. It's another nineteen thirty nine flick by the same directors as gone with the wind which has been spoofed more than three hundred times and referenced by nearly three thousand movies. It's the wizard of Oz. Kansas city. Dorothy adventure was followed by the original Star Wars. The original psycho, King Kong and two thousand one space odyssey. The full ranking is in the journal applied network science. The nalysts does have limitations it favors older films.
