Ares correspondent Jason Nathan Seuin, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler film the record breaking blockbuster. Shortly after Chadwick Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer. Kugler had no idea what his star was battling, writing in a statement that quote Chad deeply valued his privacy, and I wasn't privy to the details of his illness and that because Bozeman was a caretaker and a leader, he shielded his collaborators from his suffering. Spike Lee directed Bozeman and this year's to five Bloods writing that they filmed in the hot jungles of Thailand in Bozeman.

One of the attributes of video from Marvel Studios with actors as AH, and others who worked with Bozeman, including Michael B.

Robert Downey Jr also talks about the impact of the Boeing of Bozeman Roll. Chadwick is a He's a really smart, interesting, dynamic guy and I think he was not overwhelmed but very surprised and somewhat taken aback by the amount of love it ceased to become just about how well he inhabited the role in all this stuff.

Remembering Chadwick Boseman

"The world is still shocked and heartbroken over the death of Black Panther Star Chadwick. He inspired millions of fans with his work while privately battling colon cancer. He died Friday at the very young age of forty three, and while we all struggle to process this news, one thing is very, very clear. Chadwick was a true hero. Settlement. There's no way back. We Sat. To me, it's always about who will you get to be on screen with you get to work with everyday. Give me beautiful. Give me a number on my back. Give. You the. There was an honor to be able to trade as man and. To be able to do something that matters. There's no reason why you would think you would. Ever, get to do a superhero movies I mean be especially as a black actor and certainly not the lead of a superhero movie. King still. Hurts. Pressure but I feel like that's the thing I like the most about today. C., kids come up and say that he's my favorite character. Chadwick's passing shock to everyone including those who knew him best like Panther Director Ryan Kugler spent the year writing Black Panther too he had. No did not seem to know that Chadwick was sick at all. It's just amazing to me how he was able to. Keep. Something like this such. A secret nobody knew how much he was suffering I think not to take away from Cherbourg for a minute, but I think when you think about celebrities and you'll think back on it there have been a lot of celebrities that I've kept their cancer diagnoses a secret. You know we just had Kelly Preston who died from breast cancer David Bowie kept his illness a secret until he died Steve Jobs same thing I think what Chadwick Bozeman really wanted to do was live his life to the fullest and he didn't want anybody to. Pity him? He wasn't that guy you know what I mean and I think that he is and will always be pitted me of strength when it comes to me because he's always had held his head high, he's always represented himself and my community in the highest regard and I just I think you'll be remembered for that for the rest of his life. I don't think he wanted people to see him go through that struggle and make the last four months of his life about the illness.

Google's challenges

"In terms of users Google is the biggest of the giants four billion people worldwide probably at least one of its services from search to g mail to maps. But yesterday despite beating expectations, it reported a drop in revenue for the first time since it listed on the stock market down to a mere thirty, eight, billion dollars for the quarter. Alphabet and its cash cow. Google are facing challenges and not only from Congress they could be heading toward something of a midlife crisis. I can clearly remember in the late nineties when I lived in San, Francisco a small company called Google or service called Google came up a search engine. Of course, LUDWIG IS OUR US technology editor and it was so much better than what we had before really could find what you're looking for. You didn't have to spend a lot of time searching and so that great. That was step one, and then a few years. Later, they found great business model search ads, little ads you find on the search result pages and that turned out to be a gold mine. But. Made them very successful is their culture was bottom up people could spend twenty percent of the time on their personal project. It's more like a campus a university Hogan Ation was very innovative and I think that combination may google success. That was then what what about now, what has Google become in the intervening twenty years? This beautiful economic there developed let's the culture allowed them to be very experimental invest in lots of projects, and so what you have today is basically Google. Alphabet, is companies today called is less one sing accompanied by any ron that. Business, you have all kinds of services with Android, your surge of course, you have youtube and plus dozens of smaller services and around that an ultra belt of other bets as school calls. MOONSHOT companies. So high risk companies investing in in very far our projects like health data self driving cars. So the whole thing is is kind of a Google verse that has sprouts and actually is quite impressive if you look at it. So to your mind, is Google going to continue with this success even though it sort of branched into so many things. Recently, went down to mountain view where Google's headquarters are based and Google building this new kind of very fancy headquarters there when that happens often then kind of the company goes downhill. That's kind of the edifice complex had happened with IBM and sears and a few other companies. But in the case of Google I don't think that's the case I mean you're not gonna go. We'll go into steep. Decline still being there are some developments that I'm were structural, which will make life more difficult. Google is an optimized system with the AD engine, but now the environment is changing. So it's makes it more difficult to grow in their core business. They have to look for other businesses to grow into but I think the main problem they face is cultural one. What is it changed about the culture then? Several levels to that. The idea of this culture was also to keep the the company's small sense field small, keep it agile, avoid that the big company syndrome bureaucracy and all that and that worked for a long time. Now, one hundred and twenty thousand full-time employees. As many on the eve, more a temporary ones, and so the place has become very, very big mix of people become much more heterogeneous and that has led to conflicts. Rightly. So kind of people are worried about certain things, for example, gender politics. So you had this guy young Google James Damore write a memo about why perhaps of female engineers and not as good as male engineers and that cost a huge stir that thing was leak and management had to fire more, and then there were. Other conflicts and so it became an mouths throw him that then culminates in in a walkout of twenty thousand. Kugler in November when it emerged that Google management had paid some managers accused of sexual harassment millions of dollars to leave the company I. Think that was inflection point where we're really became apparent that was old culture was breaking down to. So those are the the issues, the problems that concerns internally but I mean there there are also some externally right as we certainly saw the congressional hearings. Yes. Of course S Guggenheim's bigger. It becomes more talkative. And Address Action Regulation in general though I. Have to say compared to cultural problems or the business problems. I think antitrust problems are not as imminent. I mean nobody's GonNa Break Google tomorrow if tekkers continues and really either. Legislative action or lawsuits it's GONNA. Take Years Willing that's the antitrust question but I mean that's not the only one that's being tackled. There are issues for instance, around data privacy that's correct and that's maybe even more problems or Google has always kind of aura fine line between protecting people's data because collect data at the same time people are getting more. Conscious. About their date I WANNA protect it. There's a movement to get these companies to pay for people stayed. So these things will change right now the default is if you collect personal data, you kind of own it facebook Google and whatever and I think that default is going to change somewhat and and kind of ownership will move back to to users and that will make things more expensive. Thinking more generally tattoo alphabet though the giant umbrella company that includes Google and everything else you mentioned what are the prescriptions what should do to tackle these cultural problems to deal with the concerns that are coming from from inside and outside alphabet to find a new balance between different constituencies, the workers customers, regulators. and has to do all that in a way that awards what the founders of Google segue bringing. Gary Page always wanted to avoid that Google becomes a conventional company. Becomes a boring company, a company with lots of the rookie in innovative so that so that's a challenge. I. Think in a way if you look at what Microsoft is done, of course, different company different problems much older than forty years. Old is such an Adele of their that the CEO is just managed to give this company in you his own data in the sense, let's let's no longer protect windows any prize kind of move into the cloud be more open company be politically responsible and I think that that's the model alphabets replicate. Replicate that one one but you have to give Google at some point or alphabet in the near future he kind of a new inspiration and I think data personal data is maybe one possibility why not offer services that don't collect a lot of data or don't target you with ads. Subscription for that or why don't you try to become a data bank quote unquote like Ben Keeps. Your money. would. Alphabet would manage your data and perhaps sell other people. I know that suggestion may make analysts at Wall Street or even tricks. Google Cringe Westwood the devil being charged data but but I think that's the type of thing Google has to or ultimate has to think about.

"Hello welcome to all about android episode, four, hundred, eighty, two, it on Tuesday July. Twenty, first twenty twenty, where your weekly source latest news hardware and APPS for the faithful I'm now. And Ron Richards. And Florence Ion. Hello, hello, three of you joined. With a fourth, actually, we have a fourth person. The Brady box squares joining us today. Return guests to the show. We've now had you on enough time, so we can say you're definitely friend of the show Dave Berg who was the VP of engineering for Google for android. APP. How you doing Dave? Thank you. L. Community back I'm, excited to be here. Absolutely we're always excited to get you on, and we feel like we've kind of like struck gold when we can have needle that works on the ANDROID team on the show, especially this close to the launch of the next big version of android. Of course, android eleven were deep in the in the waters of the Beta right now. I've been running it on my Pixel xl. Flow riding. I'm I have not installed it online, but I'm living vicariously through flow and. Flow and Jason Dave. What is the most exciting point new role out is when the Beta on for the first time you get those first early reviews, or when it's finally rolled out as the final release. The final release all already anticlimax, everything's working, and so we're not too worried about a Beta, the first. Not The first of all reviewed with the first data is the one that I most nervous, because that's when all of the things that meeting working on SORTA. Come together, the narrative comes together and subways loader at that point to make sure we actually added something that makes sense. PASA. Just good, but we all. Right for sure I mean when you're doing a public Beta. You're doing that I beta. It's really kind of a symbol from Google to say hey, we feel confident enough in this. That is not going to totally wreck your phone. You know through some weird random occurrence that happens. It's going to be pretty safe. It's going to be relatively stable. Nothing's perfect of course, but it would be. It would be kind of difficult to release that and realize Oh. Wait a minute. We actually did miss that thing and it's. It's turning your device too much, so let's reverse that so I. Imagine there's lot of nervousness around. Yeah exactly do we always going to be tested? We call it. A lot of Kugler will use the bills early on, but it's never the same as going broadly in others can wifi access points me out and seeing devices. We haven't seen the Turks are absent installed himself getting up. Water Reaches Sube reporting for US getting the feedback from the community is just as critical to to make it all work together. For sure and you've had a little bit of uncertainty obviously everybody has had some uncertainty with this work from home. A little bit might be the wrong choice of words there, but it's kind of played. A had an effect on the schedule a little bit as well. How has that like? How has that been? You had an idea for the roadmap through. Developer previews and into Beta and then he kind of had extended a little bit. Why why the extension and how? How was it navigating through that? Yeah question I think. The biggest challenge isn't the length of time working from worse at the transition from work in the office, working from home, and so you know I think as we all know. It was quite a quite are quite. Our world turned upside down routines. Mess up and it'll be. We're getting up at home to work from home as RB. A lot of work to do on our tooling so that you could use for example, high-powered desktops are on your desk in the office. devices debugging at home, and like making sure plumbing rolls out works remote add and things like that and so. There was kind of a point or lost productivity really over few weeks to get back up, we actually tracking our internal. Sales so changeless Alec the flow of changes are going through. The team probably dropped him at seven eight percent I would say in the work from home shifts. And so that you know that kind of added up And, so we decided schedule back a couple of weeks. I'm actually rivalry keeps going like I I mean I think actually I mean. Everybody TAP to this this. We're all working your own but it was nice. Especially see my team to make out. Adopt adoption and keep things moving along.

Introducing the Movie Director Game with Sam Esmail

"We have a special sort of conversation. Here we're joined by Mister Robot. Creator the Creator of the film comet The director of Amazon's homecoming. Yes Sam. Esmail saying what's up. Hello how are you? I'm so excited to be here. I'm such a fan. Oh that's very sam. You wanted to play a game with us. I did now. I want to know why you wanted to play that game with us and I also want you to explain the game. Well explaining it okay. I'll let me start by saying I'm a huge film. Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well

Discussing the Show Masks (Spoiler Alert!)

"It struck me as somebody that is is pretty well versed in the in the graphic novel. The absolutely have done something like I say that extends stems from that work so you had this almost impossible task. You had to adapt in a sense. Something that you love and respect and probably idolize is getting a lot of people to yes but also then had to depart from it completely and make it something different. It had to be of it and apart from it. How did you negotiate that very carefully? Also completely totally haphazardly. I mean I think that it was a combination of the energy of a of a bowl in China shop and and then trying to catalog everything that you knocked over and broke so that you could replace it and both things had to happen simultaneously because I think that we went in With a high degree of fear and concern and delicate nece and then very quickly we were just like fuck all of that. Let's just go nuts. And then you had vacillate between those polls and the show sort of happened in the space where we were moving in between the polls because our job storytellers is to make something feel authentic to make could feel real and I wanted this television experience. Because it's not a comic book where you're turning the pages where illustrated cartoon characters I wanted to feel real real and authentic at the same time there's some true ridiculousness happening around the the fringes of this so the first thing that we did and And when I say we at the very beginning of this thing it was this guy. Jeff Jensen I and Jeff and I jeff was a reporter for entertainment weekly remember would write these crazy theories about lost cost under the pseudonym doc Jensen not not quite as soon because his last name is Johnson. Doc in front yes. He doesn't fraud easily easily from my understanding is he did not hold a doctorate in anything. Maybe lost in any way he and I collaborated on tomorrow and and did a lot of world building for that Disney thing but when the third time they came to me and said. Do you WanNa do watchmen and I started kind of feel the beginnings of a glimmer of what it would be about. I texted Jeff and I said I have two questions. The first question is like should there. Be a watchman TV show and then the second is should I do it and I think he responded depends ends and depends and then I was like yeah would you. Would you WanNa do it together. And then he came over and He was the first person that I really bounced a lot of these ideas off of and he and I put together. This list of adjectives A like almost like a recipe list of these are adjectives that we use to describe. The original watchmen. C'mon and if our version if we can check these same adjectives against it almost like a mad libs then than we maybe we earned the name and the first word on the list was original And so now there's this paradox were presented with which is. It's an adaptation of this thing. That already exists. How do you you make it original and I think the gaming of that paradox was still thinking about? Did we game but like that was really the challenge in front of us which was like how does this thing feel like. It's it's it's watchmen. But at the same time it could only feel like it's watchmen if it's taking huge risks when and it feels is like you. You're feeling nervous while you're watching it like A. I don't know what's happening and I don't like it and I don't know where this is going to go next and I'm a little bit scared and not it just scared where it's GonNa go narrative Lee but scared that it could jump the shark. When I read watchmen I could tell you? Twenty instances in over the course of those twelve issues shoes just took my breath away in terms of like. You aren't allowed to do that. I can't believe that just happened like my heart would be racing as I was reading. Thank those issues and to to to try to replicate that emotional sensation for the TV show. That's what we were chasing. Sometimes a we succeeded needed other times. Not but that was the brass ring we were all reaching for. So what we're talking about in many ways is the tone of watchmen and its ambition and and it's fearlessness. And when we begin your series right out of the gates it does seem like you hit those well. At least you hit the ambition and you hit the fearlessness. If watchmen the graphic novel was a meditation perhaps on the morality of heroism. It seems pretty clear from the beginning of your show so that your show is about race period the end it is about race. I want to ask you how much this emphasis on race from. The start was away for you to say not only. This show is the show about race. But I need you to know right now. It is about race Yeah I'M A I. I apologize in advance because I'm not really able to to answer that question articulately yet. And in many ways this my inability to articulate answer that question was replicated in the writer's room on a repeated basis and led to an incredible incredible of conversations. Both difficult in insertive revelatory of certainly from from my standpoint. But what I'll say. Is that the most difficult question and I think that a lot of writers have to answer. Where do you get your ideas from or what? What is a moment of inspiration like what's the flash point and and a lot of the man's to the the question the same way that I will which is like something just happens internally with that just like sort of clicks and slides into place and then at least I feel compelled to get it out out and most of the time for me? Those ideas don't like happen in the shower whereas like Oh this would be a cool idea for television show. It happens because I've read something or I'm listening running to something or I'm emotionally affected by something and essentially what was happening in my life was as the leftovers was ending and I was starting to kind of feel the panic of if I am not entirely sure that I'm ever GonNa WanNa do this again. I'm I'm not having any ideas. In watchmen is just coming at me for the third time. But it's watchmen and it's the you know for me. That's the you know. It's the Rosetta Stone. It's where all began for me. Maybe not the Rosetta Stone. Do More like the black monolith in two thousand one you know where stars yeah. It's it's full of stars quite literally perfect and and an intimidating and right at the time that they asked me the third time because that because they they'd they'd asked me two times is prior. You know once probably two thousand eleven just a couple years after Zack Snyder's movie and then again maybe in two thousand thirteen or twenty fourteen and now I'm thinking it's like twenty seventeen and and I'm placing this time around the time that Charlottesville is happening and I read between the world and many Tallahassee coaches book and I'll I'm just going to be honest with you I read the book because every single white progressive liberal in the in show business was like they say like this. If you read between the world have you read it like like the shame just like you so it's just like you have to read it. You really have to read it and so I was like this. Sounds like an astonishing piece of writing and it and it was when and when I read that. I also read case for reparations which was an essay that he wrote in the Atlantic a couple years? Probably before and in case for reparations which completely. It's both wildly intuitive. It's nothing that you don't already know but the way that it is written in the story that Mr Coates tells is like just changes ages changed the way that I saw the world. In in that essay he mentioned Black Wall Street Tulsa Twenty one and the way that he wrote about it it was just I I wanna say just three or four sentences or just a paragraph as you say it felt like the destruction of a world to me and at that time also Black Panther hadn't come out yet but it had been announced that Ryan Kugler was going to do it in Tallahassee. Coach was writing Black Panther and I was thinking about what Kanda and I was thinking that. If we're Kanda actually existed in the the real world if there was this place of African American exceptionalism I guess in the case of Kanda African exceptionalism but a place that we're only black people lived and they were the best scientists and it was utopia. If white people found out about this place they would destroy it. They burned to the ground. So all of those ideas were kind of like swirling around in my head and then I bought. This book called the burning about Tulsa twenty-one because because of having read and I was just astonished by this story on every single level most of all because I had never heard about it and I felt shame and embarrassment and I would talk to other people like I talked to people of Color and they go. Oh yeah and I talked two white people and they go. What and then I'd start explaining of? This is what happened and I would see them. Start to get feel embarrassed. And then and then disconnect which is what we do when we feel like? We're supposed to know something we don't know it and so all of that stuff was kind of swirling around in my head and the fundamental question that we were asking about doing watchmen is should we do it. And if so why now. And so I- reflected back on. The original watchmen set in one thousand. Nine hundred five of the came out in eighty six and although it takes place in an alternate version of of America it was dealing with a a nuclear standoff handoff between the USSR. America and and it's counting down towards inevitable nuclear destruction on both sides. That's what the that's what the heroes are solving for. It feels else that gets a murder mystery but unbeknownst to us what's really going on the answer to the murder mystery. He has done it is someone is actually trying to save the world world And and I was like so what. What's the big cultural anxiety? Now when you close the comic book and it stays with you and the answer was says. There's a reckoning happening in America as it relates to race. It's not to say that that reckoning wasn't happening during the civil rights movement where it wasn't happening in the the eighties or the nineties but right now as especially after Charlottesville and I remember very specifically Craig like when Charlottesville happened that there was this rhetoric that was happening around where people kept saying. I can't believe they're not wearing masks. They're not wearing masks anymore. The white supremacists are just out there and we can see their faces in shocking shocking. And so that was happening at the same time that. Hbo was saying do you. WanNa do watchmen show masks and I was like what are masks. You know like what happens when and you mix a mask with the administration of the law. That's the central idea of watchmen and then the KKK. Wears masks. And I'm starting to see protesters like Antigua's wary mass. This was long before Hong Kong. But it's like this idea of like covering your face is covering your face a justification for protecting in yourself or are you doing something that you probably shouldn't be or both and then all of that kind of went into the mix at the heart of it in the center of it. Is this remarkable the character that is not a carryover from watchmen but your invention Angela. Apr Sister

Lack of media diversity an effect of slavery, BuzzFeed beauty director

"As the beauty director of digital media, giant BuzzFeed, essence, can't make sure it's content is inclusive and sensitive helping to balanced representation and reflect diversity growing up in the southern US state of Georgia. She recalls that she was surrounded by people who always validating, her as a black woman, but it was only later, she said, in an interview with you a news that she realized how underrepresented people of color were in the media, highlighting lack of diversity, as a direct result of the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with MS Gant told Anacom, what media needs to do to change. The narrative my main message was around representation because I work in media, and I think the lack of representation and diversity as we see it in media, whether it's like, TV magazines movies, whatever it is, is that wrecked result of, you know, the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with just a lack of representation the lack of diversity at every level. Well, in media from people behind the cameras that people on the camera to people writing stories, and telling narratives, and so my main message was that, you know, that matters in the media landscape because media such an important tool for education and for helping to change narratives and so change norms, and to help redistribute power. So we were speaking about the facts of slavery today. What do you think it's the importance of still learning about that period of history in the present days, I think it's something that we always have to educate ourselves about it just can't be lost as such a huge part of our history. And you can't ignore it. And you can't act like it didn't happen because it did. And people are still suffering here in the US and all around the world as a result of it. I think that it does a disservice to people who were victims of slavery when you act like that part of our history doesn't exist. So in order to honor them in order to make sure that they're. Our lives were not lost in vain, and that their suffering was not in vain. We have to keep talking about it, and we have to be realistic and acknowledging that we're still paying the price for it even today. And I think that it's important also because we have to do better and it, how it reminds us of mistakes that we've made so that we can hopefully, correct them so he worked for BuzzFeed, can you tell me a little bit about your work, and what specifically do do in order to change the stereotypes that you feel that are still into society, and especially in the fashion world, for sure? So I work at BuzzFeed, I've been there about four years, and I am the beauty director there now. And I guess a short bulletin list of what I do is really helped to shape the tone and language around content, especially as it relates to women's lifestyle and diversity. So I try to make sure that the content is inclusive and sensitive, my role in helping to change their you'll type. It's just by normalizing. Representation and diversity. I think that those things become a thing quote unquote when we don't see them often. And that's why you know, it's such a big deal when there's an all black cast for movie because it's not something that, you see, so often, even though you see all white casts for movies or it's a big deal. When you see a black woman on the cover of a magazine, because traditionally, we have not been on the cover of magazines. We've not been heralded as the standards of beauty. And I think that through my work in acknowledging that and trying to do my part to combat that I try to just normalize that and normalize black people's place in media to normalize our seat at the table, without always a disclaimer, without always saying, you know, here's this beautiful black transgender woman, and here's her story is just like, no, here's this beautiful amazing, awesome human being. And here's her story. Sorry, because I've never opens a magazine or watched TV and saw disclaimer, when it came to white people, it's just what it is. It's the norm. It's the standard. And I'm just trying to make you know, other people apart of that Norman standard just as readily do feel that it's changing somehow or do still feel like it's a lot of just covert. I do. I, I don't know if I believe it's changing for my own sanity and wanting to believe that, you know, we are progressing that humanity is progressing, but I do see small changes. I think that beliefs in how we feel about people, and how we judge people is so ingrained in that own, we're so conditioned to, to judge and make assumptions and treat people, a certain way and there has to be a conscious on learning and desire to unlearn those things. But and I think that is like the part that takes the longest because it's really, really hard to unlearn what she's been taught for so long, but I do see changes in just the up the uprising of black people in the space in media, particularly and the arts and just the unapologetic nece and the creation of their own opportunities to create their own narrative. So we're no longer depending on white. Filmmakers in Hollywood were no long. Depending on white women's lifestyle publications we're creating our own as we've seen with, you know, people like Ryan Kugler overdue for nay, and shonda rhimes and people at a much more micro level like myself, and Julie Wilson essence magazine. We're seeing it at every single level. So in that regard, I will say that I think it's, you know, getting better because we're at a point now where we are empowered enough to start creating some of those changes that we wanna see do you have any personal story that you would like to share that you felt that inspired you throughout your life, or that made you follow this path, or this passion of yours for sure. I don't know if it's like much of a story, but I think just my own experience. I'm from Georgia. I'm from the south and I grew up and black church in the south, and I will say that a black church, especially in the south every Sunday is where you will see some of the best beauty. And fashion that you've ever seen in your lives from the makeup to the hair to the big church hats. And so I've just always been around that representation, and I can honestly say that, that impacted me in such a positive way and made me feel so confident about myself, because the woman that I was surrounded by who looks like me were very confident, and they invested in what they looked like and how they carry themselves and so it gave me this confidence and to a point that I was somewhat unaware of all the bias until I got a little bit older because I was just so rounded, so heavily by people who were affirming invalidated me and my existence as a black woman, and then, you know, my grandmother was a hairdresser. She had a shop attached to the back of her house. My oldest sister is now a hairdresser and owns her own salon in Augusta Georgia, and my parents were very good about keeping media and publications around the house that reflected us as a family. So we watch TV shows that had black. Families appearance always had essence and ebony magazines and the house. So I was always constantly seeing reflections of who I was that significantly impacted the way that I navigate throughout the world. I don't walk with my head down. I wasn't afraid to go after opportunities. I wasn't afraid to have big dreams because that's what I saw people doing around me, who looks exactly like me. And now that I'm older. I'm so grateful for those opportunities and just that experience that I had because I see the benefit, and I and I'm reaping the reward of that. And so now it's become such an intentional part of my own career, you know, talks about it a little bit earlier, but even getting into media and women's lifestyle from a far it can seem very shallow or superficial, but is so much deeper than that for me. It's not about cosmetics. Although I love those things. It's not about fashion. It's about having a seat at the table and being able to be in a position of power to change the narrative, and to change the converse. Station and to expand it and to call people out when they get it wrong and says show, you know, girls who are dark skin, whether they're in the US, whether they're in Africa, whether they're in India that they are beautiful, even though they are left out of the beauty standard and they're left out of the narrative, and that they don't need to bleach their skin. It's, you know, being physical representations also allows me just by simply being there in existing. I'm able to show other girls who look like me that you don't have to straighten your hair if you want to you can because you're the authority on your own body and what you look like. But if you want to keep your hair in its natural state, no matter how tight the curls are or how kinky they are you can do that, and it should just as beautiful, and you don't need to change. There's nothing wrong with how you are physically made up. I think all of those things have definitely played a role into just my conviction and making sure that I get those messages across you were speaking to the use if you could just give them one. Advice to go through life and feel secure and confident of what they are, what would that be? I think that if I had to give the students advice or any young person advice is that your enough, and I know that, you know, we hear that so many in so many different ways all the time. But it's so true you're enough. You have everything you were born with everything that you need in this world to survive and make it through, and I'm not talking about material things. I'm just talking about your components as a human being you're intelligent. You're beautiful. And you know, your perspective and your experience is what makes you special. So when we talk about intelligence and smarts, it's not always like book, smart like you need to do what you have to do in order to get through school. And that's very important. But are you socially aware? How smart are you about your own self and your own abilities? And your own bias sees how, you know, do you talk to other people who don't look like you do you firm those relationships? So you figure out are do you talk to other people and ask about their experiences. Those are the things that make you smart and that make you sensitive and conscious. And so, I would just say, as long as you have the as long as you are able to do those things, then you, you'll have everything that you need to navigate through the world. So don't ever feel like just because you're not reflected in on TV are in a magazine that you're that you're not worthy. Are that you don't have what you need that you don't have the essential tools that you need to make it throughout the world because you definitely do.

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma

"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.

"Straight loss. Kevin Kugler on the Westwood One radio network and the Sunday night football call and so it had to be a little more dramatic, right? It could just be that the eagles were able to get a first down run out the clock. No couldn't be like that. Or that? The Rams could actually have a possession with three minutes to go without fumbling away the punt yet, you know, they feel the pressure and the tension in their guts the same way that we do. So the Rams fall to eleven and three and the eagles are still alive at seven and seven with Nick foles back under center. This eagles team is still. The defending champ with a chance to get back to the postseason complete team games complete team win. And that's one of the best teams in the NFL right now. And they showed it as I mean pointing to get some every single play they were bringing it. But I'm really proud of the guys for facing adversity. That's what we preach this week. Was you know in any game? There's going to be adversity. There's going to be things that happened just leaning on one one another sticking to one another stadium with one another. And that's what we did today. There was a couple of adverse things, but we were able to create turnovers. The one know we've made a great play on that interception. But we bounced back and we kept playing, and you know, that's really what eagle football's about twenty four thirty one for Nick foles two hundred seventy yards and the interception, and yes, keep lead did make it very athletic play. His first interception of the year for the Rams. Meanwhile, the team that has lost its top two running backs managed to scrape together one hundred eleven yards rushing, and that was huge because they needed that balance and foles needed that opportunity that threat of the run versus the throw to keep the Rams de off-balance. So a huge win. And like I said that third quarter. It was good to see the eagles again. Eight five five two one two four two two seven as always that's our phone number. How many teams and if you can list him if you want, but how many teams do you think legitimately have a shot to win the Super Bowl? Now, obviously you have to get in to win. But just looking at the teams all year long now almost. Fifteen weeks down which ones do you trust? Do you legitimately think have a chance.

"How did we get to the point where remakes and sequels and all sorts of iterations on existing franchises have become such an incredible percentage of all the entertainment created because I know that they've already existed, but this is twenty-seven seventeen top worldwide grosses at the box office Star Wars, the last Jedi beauty and the beast. The fate of the furious, which is sequel number seventy eight despicable me three Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle that is a sequel Spiderman homecoming, which is either a sequel or reboot it's both depending on depending on which way you want to look at it wolf warrior to number eight guardians of the galaxy volume two shirt number nine Thor ragnarok, number ten wonder woman. Yeah, that's global. That's the top ten movies all of them, a sequel or a reboot or in some cases both. So how did it become what changed in the industry that made this the predominant model rather than just like something that Disney might do every once in a while? There's a Cup. Of arguments. The the first argument is that it is more appealing to a studio to produce an existing property. A new version or sequel to something that people already know because it's easier to sell there's less resistance on every level. It's a thing. If you already know the thing, you're more likely to be interested in the thing. The other argument is that the mid range movie has disappeared which is where you used to see many more original concepts and they're either turning on Netflix now like new films from Nicole hall of center Tamara Jenkins, or what is the mid range movie. It would have been made for somewhere between it used to be twenty to sixty million. Now, it's five to twenty. It would have been a smallish film, usually a character study or historical drama that doesn't have battle scenes is about people in rooms or people in, you know, houses having lives and doing things that don't involve capes or murder and the mid range movie even those of mutated into stuff like bird box. The netflix. Which is opposed to puck elliptic thing. With Sandra Bullock walking through a forest. Blindfolded? Arrival would have been amid range movie actually seem screenwriter. Eric Heiser arrival would have been a mid range movie. But instead, it was a massive studio words contender because of what it turned out to be. But I think when they started it out it was going to be a smaller more intimate project. So those films don't get made anymore because twenty million dollars into a movie will get you maybe sixty or eighty this is the old thinking, and so now if you make a guard Guanzhou in thing that costs a hundred and fifty million unless it tanks so spectacularly that. You know, the studio dies it'll probably pull in half a billion to a billion dollars. Right. It doesn't have to be good. But it has to be safer. Bet has to be recognizable. Exactly. So that's part of it. The hangover was a tiny little movie that then became a monster franchise because it was hit. So they made two more. Now, what am I seeing tooth? Who's maybe is a call or something? And in the olden days, they would have stopped after one. He would have just said, oh, that's really cool. This thing made three hundred million dollars for a everybody likes it. Let's go to the next contest. Do another comedy. Exactly. Let's lunch. Something else. When Bradley Cooper was here. Like six months before he was here for another original project that Jim Carey movie called yes-men, the tanked, and he said like it was insane that that Warner was giving this movie two three completely untested. Like, Bradley Cooper, never had a hit and homes and never had a hit. Nobody news at Calvin. Acas was set a couple of comedy cycles or comedy circles in journalists, and they risk that money on this little movie, which couldn't have cost that much, and it was a massive hit. And then they made two more, and they'll probably reboot it in five years with with. I would assume women because that might be interesting. There have been attempts to do a women's version of the hangover bridesmaids is great rough night. There's a few of those the idea of people behaving badly friend circles getting out of control, they'll they'll reboot the hangover in five years. They'll prob. Rebooted with women because that's a smart move because otherwise you have to. I mean, the the gender thing really helps because you create a new universe that doesn't depend on the demands of the original film, you you can bring, you know, most remakes are very very rooted in the expectations of the audience, right because we all wanna be pandered to we own to see the thing that we liked again. That's the governing principle of entertainment. Now, give me more of the thing. I like I understand exactly why the studios do it. When you lay it out that way on the economics and play why do we consume it? Why is our bar? So low nail it doesn't feel like it was always this way. Well, it probably was we just didn't know it. The the difference is that now instead of knockoffs which used to happen. You know, if there was a smoking abandoned, there'd be ten car movies the next year. If there was rocky there'd be five boxing movies, the next year or or sports movies or a wave of underdogs. Portsmouth is actually what did happen stuff like breaking away. And so on now, we just make more Rockies. Yeah. We we really have another one right now creed to is rocky eight. Away that creed was not rocky seven, which is kind of disappointing. And no one can articulate it. Exactly. But the the answer is it's because it's because creed was the only one that Silvester still didn't right. And he didn't script it. It was somebody else's project. He was used beautifully in it. But when Ryan Kugler wasn't available to come back to Crete to Stallone jumped in and wrote it, and it's a rocky movie now, and I think people should be more disappointed by that than they are. That's the crux of why we want to have this. But they're not conversation because they're not an I made fun of when you said at the beginning of this podcast that there would be another Harry Potter, and who would be cast as another Harry Potter. I will watch that Harry Potter movie or it'll probably actually be a TV show. So that they can do it. Yeah. For Justice over eight years and eight seasons, and whatever God, you could go to school with them in real time home, that's a horrible idea. I would watch. So I I agree that it's a bad idea. But I will consume that content. Why it's because you want to see your idea of what it should be validated. And in the end, we find out that it doesn't matter. If it isn't because nobody can imagine. Everybody's complaining about what a movie isn't. And what it shouldn't be. I mean, that's my job is to say actually this. But I hope that I'm coming at it from a perspective of history, and a sense of you know, why you can make this movie why this movie fails or why this movie's succeeds, and how this argument could be applied to other movies and similar genres. I basically, I I'm there to provide context for why you did or didn't like something. I guess, but as far as the reboot thing goes again, it's safer because the curiosity factor has it clipped everything else people want to know, they want to see what the new superman looks like they want to know what the new joker like Joaquin Phoenix is the joker. But Jared Lido is the joker. Well, that's what happens ledger. Yeah joke. They'll Cesar Romero is the joker or Jack Nicholson as the joker. That's the. That's the point. Right. Like my engagement with the stuff is always. Oh, that's interesting or. Yeah. I've seen that. There's like it's a binary. There's no middle ground. There is no mildly successful remake it either works or it doesn't. And it's because we know what it's supposed to look like is because we've been trained by our own lives to want. This thing the way it was supposed to want to watch new stuff. Oh god. Yes. That's all. I want. I crave it, please. Give me some. But why does so many people? Why would so many people prefer to watch a sequel to something that they already know part of it is that you don't have to invest as much. You already have the backstory you don't need to introduce new things. Or if you do you have to do it in a certain way, fix it feel comfortable Spiderman homecoming is an excellent example of that they turned it into an eighties movie. Yeah. Which makes it simultaneously nostalgic of new in a way that this character doesn't need to be. But it works. It's comforting. And you feel the the youth of the character is because he's never been a kid before Spiderman being in high school before in the movies, but he's a child and Tom Holland's performance. I mean, the the actors in his twenties, but he looks like a kid, and you can root for him that way, and it makes it feel new and by having Tony stark introduce him to the two by having Tony stark introduced into the marvel universe in civil war. It was like extending a hand to the franchise and bring it on. And the fact that I know all of this is nuts because it's a two hour movie. And I shouldn't bring all of this stuff with me to this film. But it's not a reboot. It is the what eighteenth chapter in films. That's been going on for a decade. It's part of a huge thing where we are now culturally. Right. It's not just social media and the internet, although that's a huge part of it is part of the it builds expectation, but it's also the fact that this story has been ongoing, and if you missed one you can probably catch up it's not a big deal unless you missed an adventures or captain America movie where all the characters are together you can dip in and out. But if you've been following it all along, it feels really good to know all this stuff. It feels like you're being accommodated in a way that a remake or a sequel or a franchise is supposed to do it. Doesn't bar new entry, but it rewards ongoing participation in the Harry Potter films did the same thing. I mean, they made one of those a year for eight years, right or the there. They started to stagger them apart after a while. Once it got complicated. They were releasing them every year and a half. I don't remember. But I do remember that I saw all of them. I didn't really like all of them. Did they didn't get good until the third one? And we're at a place now culturally where you can say that about a television show. Well, you have to watch the for six episodes. No, you don't you actually don't. But if you don't you'll miss it. And if everybody's talking about it, they and you want to see it. And if it's a thing that everybody talked about twenty years ago that that little tug is still there. So when fuller house comes back, which is okay. Comfort food at best. Right. It's a remake. It's a it's a new season of a show that people other show that they've brought back which is like there's a list of them. Yeah. Fuller houses. I for me. It's the best example because it's one of those things where when you hear about it. It sounds insane. Why would anyone care? And then you find out exactly how many people do care, which is why it exists, and whether they really wanna see it or just kind of curious about it that doesn't matter as long as they click on it for Netflix. The Netflix has made it worth their while. And we're going to get more of it. And we're going to get more of an and that Spurs the need to make more things come back. So there's a new charmed and there's a new. Do not on Netflix. But it's it's all part of the culture, if you can reboot a TV show, you can make millions of dollars right off the bat and the Handmaid's tale just got a built in audience through its TV show success. And now there's a book sequel Margaret Atwood is writing a Handmaid's tale sequel, which is one of the few things that I'm genuinely interested in because she won't be basing it on the TV series. That's the important part. It will it will still be set in her world. I mean, I don't need the answers to what happens in the Handmaid's tale. It's all in the first book, we know what we need to know about that book was a finished work. And you know, it is because it's been taught in schools for thirty years. Sure. It's a self contained narrative. And if there was one artist in Canada didn't need to follow the two reasons for producing sequels and remakes that you've just outlined, theoretically, it should be Margaret what she can do whatever she wants. She absolutely can. But I can also I can see the testament emerging as a response to the show, but that's me understanding the pull the remake. I would rather just think about it. Myself than have to watch it executed because the odds are won't be the thing that I wanted it to be when beauty and the beast, the stage version came to Toronto I got to go to a preview, and nobody told us that the thing was three hours long that it was a massive reconstruction of an eighty two minute movie. And when the first deviation came which is slightly longer dialogue scene between bell and her father. There was a kid. There was a child very must have been very unsettled up in the mezzanine who started saying, no, no, no, no, no. This isn't it and had to be shushed. And it's like, that's the brain. And that's everybody in these things, you really only want to see the thing you like, and you want more of it. But you don't that? I mean, the kid didn't they could be just wanna beauty, and the b you can give this opportunity this child who I mean, this would have been was after The Lion King. Right. So it was the mid to late ninety s and this childhood only been raised on this movie. That was only, you know at most ten years old, and he didn't want more wanted the same thing. And that's all of us. But we won't admit it. So we're still curious. We're kinda wanna go see what the new thing is if it's the old thing. And if it's not the old thing we want to know, how we can be comforted by whatever it is that we loved about the old thing, and it never occurs to people to just pull out the old thing and watch it again because those are everywhere, and that's that's my objection. And yet when Pete's dragon comes out, or when the Paddington movies come out, and they are beautiful perfect realizations of the spirit of the project, even though they are not the original thing than you do reconnect with the thing you loved about it. And I think it's also very telling that those are projects for children. Yeah. We're all children. Now, we want to be right. Like, isn't that the whole thing? The the lie of the the government is that you want a strong like what what's the argument? The Republicans are the strong father. And the Democrats are the are the nurturing mother, and you can only have one at a time. But we see what is strong father looks like, and it's horrible and we retreat can we want whatever

We had nine total points between the two teams in the first twenty eight minutes and twenty seven seconds. And in the last twelve drives which encompassed a little over thirty one minutes thirty. Thirty eight points on the board between these two teams. Maybe got a little tired. Maybe not the depth. They weren't able to keep things going. But whatever it was provided a very entertaining finish a twenty seven twenty win for the Dallas Cowboys. We check the final stats brought to you by indeed dot com.

Eagles just their third loss at home in the last couple of years and this one came twenty seven twenty at the hands of Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott Prescott two hundred seventy yards and a touchdown. Ezekiel Elliott one hundred fifty one yards rushing on nineteen carries with the score. He also had six catches for thirty six yards and a touchdown Amari Cooper second game with the Cowboys. Six catches seventy five yards earns to catches forty yards. Beasley four catches thirty seven yards for the eagles Adams only seven carries forty seven yards. They didn't run the. So much. They didn't really try to run the ball much three hundred sixty yards passing for Carson Wentz. Two touchdowns at a pick Zakar. It's fourteen catches one hundred forty five yards and two scores. And for the eagles their fifth loss of the year. All five losses by combined twenty two point. They were just short at the end and they've been just short in all of their losses all season long and Mike Mayock. The defending Super Bowl champs are finding the road to defending that Super Bowl very difficult this year, they have a lot of people. Asking me. We know what's wrong with the eagles in really on the defensive side of the ball to bunch of little things. You know, we talked about it tonight. Third and fifteen. Russell Douglas loses contain on a bubble screen miss tackles, improper spacing little things that when you add it up turn into losses in the eagles numbers are pretty good on the defensive side of the ball. When you when you look at where they stack up with the league, but they can't make key plays when they need to make them. Kevin. I'll there were several key plays made tonight. Dallas a few by Philadelphia, but many of those strung together in what is the Geico drive of the game. Well, I'll tell you what would seven twenty-seven left in the fourth quarter and the score tied at twenty Dallas. The ball thrown twenty five yard line. Eight plays seventy five yards. The eight up over four minutes on the clock. Zeke Elliott took it in from the one yard line. And on that drive Prescott with three for four with key completions to Cooper into Hearns on a third Nate. That was the key driver of the game. The winning drive of.

"Everybody. I'm Kevin Kugler along with Mike Mayock, Scott Graham will join us shortly. From our Westwood One studios. The Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles may not have had a first-half that they want it three and five for the Cowboys four and four for the eagles. And in an effort to jump-start each offense. Both teams hit the trade deadline and hit it hard at the wide receiver position for Dallas. They go out trade a first round pick for a Mari Cooper from the Oakland. Raiders. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles go pick up golden Tate from the Detroit Lions new wide receivers in each spot. Both figure to make a major impact moving forward. And I think they're both really good fits for these teams. Let's start with Golden State. Now, how we Roseman the GM of the eagles a third round pick keep in mind. He only has eight games left on his contract. So it's incumbent upon how to try and get him signed an extended for the off season. But as far as tonight and the rest of the season entirely too much reliance on Zakar Sean Jeffrey with offense they needed somebody else. Could separate by himself. Golden Tate can Aken separate be best run after catch receiver in the entire NFL. And with Darren sproles out with the punt return game. He may even get an opportunity to return some pumps and the other thing I learned in practice on Wednesday. Kevin they love him in the locker room. And I'm from Philadelphia. This city loves blue collar tough intelligent players. And that's what he well. You'll certainly have that in Philadelphia, but you've got Amari Cooper in Dallas who is supposed to be the big play guy that Dallas has been missing. And they have let's face it. I mean Dez Bryant has had hasn't been there as the guy for three or four years. Now, Jason Witten is gone who becomes the guy. And there was nobody that could separate on their own. The guy do like, by the way is Michael Gallup the third round pick. He's got some juice. But he's still developing learning how to play Amari Cooper brings a physical presence at six one about two hundred and fifteen pounds. But he's also quick enough to get in and out of breaks and create separation. So. Between Gallup and Amari Cooper. I think that they're going to beat Dak Prescott Beth friends going forward while they're looking for big place last year and a half only seventy two plays of twenty yards or more for this Dallas Cowboys offense. Speaking of Dallas, there's a big field in big d that this is a must win for the Cowboys. What's the status of this team going into this game tonight? And I think it is a must win on the defensive side of the ball. They can win make them play playoff football today on the defensive side of the ball all the problems stem on the offensive side. The offensive line is nowhere near where it was three years ago. Because of that the reliance on Dak Prescott the quarterback has gotten to the point where he's created nine turnovers in the first eight games, they've got a feed Zeke Elliott early they gotta feed them often play accident, and you know, what punt is not a bad play tonight, low scoring games. What they're looking for much more to come from Philadelphia as we approach kickoff between the eagles and Cowboys. But when we return Scott Graham joins us from our progressive insurance. Studios. Progressive makes it easy to bundle your home and car insurance. This is Westwood one's coverage of the National Football League. W.

"Ryan Kugler should have to change how he presents himself to be, I guess, more respected or willing for people to work with home in Hollywood. No professional. I'm sorry, go ahead. Ben see professional as far as I know. No said. Yeah, I agree. Good enough. I agree. It's professional. He gets shit done. He makes them money. And then number one make the studios you might think so. But I think when it comes to race, sometimes that can kind of Trump. Same shit. They with women, same shit. The industry did in the sixties and seventies with Bruce Lee. Oh, Asian, same a good. The great example. Yeah, that's racist. It's fuck. It is true though. Hollywood still is in old white man's game, unfortunately. But that's why we need people like Ryan Kugler to do this. I one hundred percent agree. I mean, hell like Bruce Lee was supposed to be income fool, and they gave it a day, the character because they didn't think America would take county to have an Asian main care. Yup, that's true. That is very true in this day and age age shouldn't matter. I mean if he's a good director and obviously he is then that should be enough. But unfortunately, like Ben said, it is still a white man's game more or less, and that's very sad. I don't think that he should change himself. No, because that's just who he is. You know, in plus two, I don't necessarily want him to be pigeonhole. I mean, these are the types of stories that he wants to tell more power to them. I don't necessarily want him to be pigeonhole. I don't want him to become like the next Spike Lee per se, though either. Whereas this like everything he does has to be, you know, urban center or considered a quote, unquote black movie. You know what I'm saying is like I want him to be able to get jobs he should be able to to make fucking legally blonde three or whatever the fuck else you wanna make or elf to or some bullshit. Four. I'm sorry. Excuse me or just whatever else. You know, it doesn't necessarily have to be, oh, it has to be some something that that the blacks are going to relate to. Right. You know what I mean? And I'm just worried that that's kinda cornered at. They're going to pay him into now if that if he feels more comfortable in that space and he feels more comfortable telling those kinds of stories, then more power to them. But right, I don't. I don't sit and be limited to that. Exactly. Exactly. It's interesting because I'm just like, you know, I don't think about things like that normally, but I'm like, you know, it's you. You have to kind of put on a face with certain people, and especially if you're a person of color, you gotta put on a bunch of different phases, you know, kind of like what we were talking about a couple of weeks ago with the hate. You give movie how the girl she goes to the white preparatory school. She lives in a ghetto, so she has kind of put on a different face when she's at home as opposed to when she's around her white friends. Right. And you know, I don't think about this. If when it comes to like people who work in industry and how they have to present themselves to, you know, not scare off these old white people. No offense to a white people who may listen to this show. I want to be just sitting on your always like noted there nears true today. She like, what was that movie ludicrous was in. It was a bunch of crap. Yes, yes. Yeah, you know exactly what I'm talking about that scene where they want pass, Indra bullets character. I think she kind of like gets closer to a husband and shit, and they make a big deal about it, like based on what I want to studio persons, any other you find out that they're actually stealing some shit. What's no. No, but it was just because they assumed because it was too black news. It was like, oh, you're gonna rob me or some shit. I don't know. I, I'm happy that he's getting this and I hope that you know, I mean, I don't know what he got paid to make defers white pants or. But I hope that him and his team got together and it was like, look, we may Jomo a billion dollars off of a property that you know.

"I the one thing i only had complaint wise about creed was that kugler so great with his one shot and that one shot boxing act to be crete to one of the best scenes in any movie in recent memory and i wish more of that in that movie in hr replicated in this one so on hope the soundtracks to the using dna kendrick lamar was a pretty good move there the creed to trailer it was fairly bad ass so yeah we would like to crete through trailer most people did we saw it in the bed on the big screen we saw drastic world than look great there too so very excited for that one how about this jerry leto is more bs the vampire in a spider man spinoff movie and this will not affect him playing ng the joker in the joker spin off movie i mean goof from thoughts on this because this is some weird shit very strange okay so i don't know much about this character but is is more like a known like is that the main character the spin or is it gonna be the villain in a spin off with another character we know i think it's just about more bs that's i'm not very familiar with more but he looks really cool it looks like something jared leto fucking love to do very true like he's probably dressed up as his character for halloween before more bs to living vampire which we might even be saying the name wrong i don't know yes peaky probably deadpool things were like ryan reynolds wanted to do it but jared leto like didn't wanna pick a mainline superhero so he picked more bs dying fucking i dunno have never even heard of it until i saw this casting but you know what like leto playing creepy characters is just like there's not is no one better for even though joker stoker's kind of in between that was more product of the movie than of his performance i performance was a little over the top two but that's what that's what the movie dictated i think leto has been creepy and other things i mean you sir creepy and blade runner two thousand twenty nine forty nine yeah forty eight i think his over the top his performances joker but also like what would you prefer that came just doing ledgers joker that would have been like everyone says rip off i think making it his own was better than trying to replicate the success of legis joker but yeah you're right it was a little too i don't know like calm down guy so let more bs living van we're about it yeah it's a weird looking character but like you said trill vampire bat living vampires is not really a vampire just immu tasted that what looks like i don't know much about this character it looks like i'd like to wikipedia it looks like something that you'd see like a nickelback video i don't know why but i looked at him and i just think of nickelback magic the gathering card help five out of five attack takes if tapped he looks like he always reminds me of why discovered the each of us know about men gathering he almost looks like a like a mr hyde to dr jekyll version of gambit but he's got the long hair a bit of a kate thing going on like you may have some gambit relations movie i know we're all looking for he does i mean he sucks he looks at bitch he looks like he sucked but he's almost bad ass enough where i kind of care about how this is going to develop more bs the living vampire apparently be played by jared leto but he will still play the joker the rare dc marvel actor so we'll see the heavens yapping see how that goes that makes me smart when whenever somebody in real life like good marvel x or defects i'm like well actually jared leto appeared in both dc and marvel universes in this real smart last at least we gotta get to our drastic world review.

"Creed in him in terms of his charisma his power his pain to that we do see come through and i'll go so far as to notice well josh that his anger the trait that really drives that character is rooted in family just like a donnas was and also more specifically even a choice made by that character's father that instigated a whole chain of events i think i'll mention as well that i did enjoy about this move even though we will get maybe to some of that action i think i really enjoyed the fact that there is a good balance in its tipped way more the scale is tipped way in the favour of worldbuilding and character in this film versus the smaller part of the scale which is plot and i think based on what we've seen in the character drama that rebel station is and then a little bit more just taking it up a notch in terms of a being this bigger budget action movie with creed that is what i would expect from a ryan kugler movie it's going two hit all the notes that it needs to hit from our storytelling standpoint but in terms of character and in terms of really understanding who these people are where they come from what's motivating them that's what's going to be the priority in ryan kugler film and it is here yeah i love good worldbuilding and i think black panther does a fantastic job of doing that so that's one of the things i did appreciate about it and you hit all the same points i probably would have brought up in terms of what marks this a kugler movie he was born in oakland so very cool to see that he's setting that it it's really bookended by june scenes in oakland or yet and so you've got that they're the long takes i think there is some cgi trickery here the former cheating that creed yes some cut to ito's but um and some of them as we'll get to are more effective than others but i've i like that use of the camera michael be jordan as you know that this partner this in front of the camera partner that he's established he's easily highlight of the sfim.
