"So I would be more worried if we weren't talking about two of the top five players in the NBA The fact that a matter is we are and when it comes down to it either game five. Game Four game six is GonNa come down a joke the joker in Murray better than ad and the king and a the king or forever right now at least I mean I say forever. But for the imminent future, better than a joker Murray, they don't really need help yet. They I would be worried if I were a Laker fan I'll be worried if I were on Laker squad because what you're talking about is absolutely correct in terms of their dual being degraded. But now if you look at them, they're a duo and others versus eighteen and NASA problem coach to always say a closed fist will beat those fingers spread and that's what the Lakers are like two together and three playing somewhere sideways, and you're hoping and counting who's the other one's GonNa. BE, crucial. is going to be who is going to every single night. Every coach I've ever play for gave a game plan at every coach always highlighted one of the best attributes, all of his players reliability. Absolutely. Well, I I don't even care if you're a great I, even care for good he his Biran lobby. So I can know him when I'm composing this gay plan physics who are, and if you look at the Lakers in the fourth quarters, the tool wins for the Lakers. They were outscored in those same fourth quarters. Let's look at these. Lakers and crunch. Paul screen. King time most fourth quarter minutes versus the nuggets. You don't necessarily want to see this your oldest guy, the one of the two in the duo is putting in most minutes and then look who's right behind him Caruso Kusaba Davis then, Rondo if you look at this disjointed and light up the guys who are finishing the game, not even the guard starting a game, let's start talking about going against a team with a closed fist. They go out there with their starters they're gonNA close with those guys. All over the place got to be careful closing with guys. You don't start with because chemistry will be affected. GotTa bring in our Guy Fawkes NBA analyst Slick Rick Dubuque. Quick settle this for us or you worry Lebron ad don't have enough help close out the nuggets. No I'm not worried about the help I'm not worried about Kyle Kuzma and Alice Caruso being the Western Conference finals and not consistently giving you picked performances considering they've never been in the playoffs before I'm not worried that an almost thirty five year old Rajon Rondo who is a career? Thirty percent thirty, three, percent three, point shooter can't hit a big shot in the western conference final. What I'm worried about is that their so called to stars don't show up or have not showed up at winning time crunch time in these two close games, which just happened to be the two closest games that they've played in the final so far if you look at the numbers for Lebron, we know what he did in the last five minutes in game two was. Three turnovers. Three missed shots, an air ball three no points zero points. Zero Assists Anthony Davis obviously went off in that. pull it out but in this game. Last Night Anthony Davis lasts five minutes didn't even take a shot never mind assist or anything else and Lebron James? I got him one for three with one turnover in one assist meanwhile on the other side of the equation. In Game Two. Yokich scores the last eleven points for the nuggets and Jamal Murray assists onto of those buckets and then in game three Jamal Murray gives you six points and a sweet dime and ninety second spurt in the final two and a half minutes that basically ice the game I am seeing the nuggets star step up when the game needs to be one in these type games and I am not seeing it from the Lakers stars. So. This is what I absolutely hate this. We look at the overall numbers that we say, well, Lebron, James, and Anthony Davis or top five players and doing their job. Your job is to bring that home I'm not looking for the complementary players to make the big shots at the end of the game I don't care what the final numbers are when it comes down to a close contest my stars need to bring it home and that For the most part has not the case with the Lakers and that's what I would be most worried about the only things like honestly that I'm worried about is if it turns into a track meet young legs going that's the that's my only concern like you heard Murray at the end of the Game I. Don't know if you'll watch the post game quotas sooner that was over I always wash the quotes at the end of the game. because. That's where you really hear what you need to hear from these players. The to authenticity Mario says Oh this turns into a race or the younger teams. So I said, maybe he just talk and let me look it up. He's right on average. The Lakers starting lineup is roughly four years older than the nuggets target lineup. Now you might think that's not a big deal until you saw at the end of the game ad was cast remember. Lebron dive for that loose ball and look it took him forever to get up and he was like man if somebody gave me a pillow and a blanket lease. So I'm not so much concerned about the help what I'm concerned about is like man I don't know if if the legs will tire if this series continues to go longer. So like like we said before the Brandon ad, they just can't afford to play with their food. Yes. If you look the stat line, the Bron- ball technically, if you look at the stat line, a gave you twenty seven points but you gotta have more than one assist. You gotTa have more than two rebound you're the most athletic player. And the court on the court probably the most athletic player left in the finals in you're talking eastern and Western Conference. So ad has to give you more. It's not enough to just twenty seven points is crunch time ads to have a crunch time performance. The thing that fascinates me is that the Lakers really are an outline hung the four remaining teams. The other three are young and deep and versatile and I'm watching Danny Green trying to chase around Jamal Murray Jamal. Got Anything he wanted to figure it out Alex. Caruso so yeah, the the the Lakers are a front running team they need to get out and play fast early and get a lead. There are completely different team when it comes possession by possession game or it becomes a close game because I haven't seen consistently under pressure ad and Lebron work together well in the way that I've seen to mall and Yokich, and here's the other thing that I take from take from the When a hit the big shot and obviously biggest shot of his career meaningful. But the fact of the matter is they should have never been in that position. They should.

"That allowed me to be my true self. They never wanted me to be anything else. They never wanted me to dress fancy or you know there. It was all just being me, which I'm so grateful for because like in a world that has told me in my whole life that I'm not okay. As I am that I you know, that I don't measure up to standards of beauty or or whatever like to have this incredibly powerful sort of corporation coming in saying to me just be you. That's good enough. And not only is it good enough. But it's a great was really a powerful. Thing for me emotionally. Can you talk a little more about that? Did you feel those pressures growing up that you didn't totally fit in? Yes. Yeah. I mean, I grew up in San Diego which. Was at the time of very very segregated place. And the part that I ended up on was predominantly white. I was very much aware of limping different and being different than having a different name in eating different food. And I was also made to feel different like on a daily basis by the people around me. And it's funny because now, you know, I'm so much older. I sometimes wonder like am I narrative ising this? My creating a story am I remembering it wrong. And what's funny since the show came out like all these people from my past or coming out of the woodwork? And so people are like posting pictures online of childhood things that we did together. And it's always like me and a whole bunch of blonde girls. Okay. Did not remember. And so it's not, you know, there's of course, nothing wrong with being blonde or being white. And I've so many friends who are blonde and white and beautiful and wonderful. It's just that when an entire society an entire culture is like sending signals constantly to all of us that there's one standard of beauty or one standard of normalcy. For that one thing is the default and everything else is weird than like, of course, a little kid can't help but feel excluded and feel different. And so growing up eating your mom suit. He's eating Persian food. What was your school lunch? Like, what would she pack for you? While sometimes we had Persian leftovers or there are certain Persian dishes. Make a great sandwich. You know, there's something we have called let which is kind of like, a little mini Meatloaf or something a little, Patty. And so that would make a great sandwich with pickles man, as my mom would stick it in a pita pocket or Kusaba Z, which is sort of herb, herb and greens rich for Totta, and I'd get a Kuku sandwich. Or sometimes one of my favorites was like she would make Persian pasta, which all Persians make this one type of pasta. I think that that's they and it's called a mock out Oni. And so and so this is like a pasta grip eating was very specific flavor of beef. It was a beef and tomato sauce with mushrooms and a lot of oregano, and it was super good. But only like when I became a cook. And moved to Italy today realize like it has nothing to do with Italy. You'd never find a sauce like that in Italy. It's very very particularly Iranian. So my mom would make macaroni. And then she would give us this incredible double car blunt of pita pockets filled with muck aronie. Oh, Oh, yeah. yeah. What we we? Call them spaghetti sandwiches. They were so good. We'll what's interesting. I feel like you hear a lot of kids who have foreign parents, myself included, just wanting to fit in and like, oh, I just wish I could have a white bread sandwich with craft single in it. But it sounds like you really embraced the lunches at your mom was making you. I totally did don't get me wrong. But like, I had a friend. I remember like third or fourth grade, and we would walk to school together. Her mom, always made her like wonder, red PJ's. Also, she was like stick thin. I think her mom was trying to get her to gateway. So mom would put margarine and peanut butter and jelly on the sandwich. Also, get like a bag of cheese. It's a bag of Oreos. And for whatever reason she hated Oreos..

"He said in his mealy-mouth suppressor, which would have review criticizing him for that. He doesn't wanna shit all over the city in the organization. I understand that. But you know, he he made it clear been saying, it's my time. And I felt like I did everything I could hear that you know, they just weren't gonna win. And that's why he was ready to move on out. No, this trade requests would have come. If they weren't totally out of the playoffs this year. I think if they were looking like a solid playoff team. He probably wouldn't have requested it. But now it's come out that he wants to go to the Lakers, but also would be willing to sign launch over the Knicks bucks and clippers. If he is traded the Lakers have now really it sounds like offered the kitchen sink per voelpel reports from the LA times of Lonzo ball. Brennan ingram. Cal Kusaba two first round picks. So no, Josh heart release the only thing that's not in there. And you know, the could in theory offer four first round picks and three picks wops they really wanted to. And then also absorbing Solomon hills contract for next year, which is an interesting idea, but they wouldn't really have max space if they take on a D now anyway for next year hill could always be stretched or a could some consideration to could be given to another team to take him. And how do you just feel in general about that offer? Now, I mean, that's that's probably a reasonable offer. I mean to have Ingram all of their good young guys in there, the subject third, maybe that the Pels wouldn't wanna take that offer. Now, not only because they think it'll be there in the off season. Has Mark Sinai's Hodge by but also because those players if they play will help them win to two games to the rest of the year. So people can push I can push back on that. Because they didn't help Lakers went too many games. Lebron was out. So drew holiday you got through and some of the other guys like, Dave they could take do some they could do some heavy resting some load banishment which drew holiday there. So the reason for me that I so I wouldn't do this deal with the ones that I would be looking at right now would be from teams that have a really material advantage now versus later. So that would be talking to Denver talking to Toronto those types of teams, and if they can make you a really different type of offer that you think is better than both what the Lakers are offering. Theoretically, what the Celtics met offer. It's very possible that the Celtics bid weakens depending on what happened with Kyrie and a couple other things that could also strengthen if he says, hey, the only way I'm staying is if you get entity Davis, but the reason why is because. The Lakers offer is going to be there in this former something very similar there. There are guys that I like in this, and especially if they added, Josh heart. He's another intriguing piece. But there isn't anybody with real, you know, superstar big difference talent. And that to me means that you're you're not going to see their value rise significantly during the rest of the season. It could you know, maybe individual guys have an showing in the playoffs. It's make it or something else. But also because then you open up the door for what happens if the right team gets the number one pick or even the number two pick. If you think there's another guy that's good enough or somebody gets desperate or something else. Like if that offer isn't on the table right now into new Davis is still going to be the best trade piece that is available in July. If even whether if they make this if they don't make this deal. So I that's why I wouldn't do it right now. It's really how you can say. I mean, I think the risk of never finding out what boss. Austen's going to offer is a greater risk than some offer. That could be made now is going to be gone. And I mean, that's completely insane. But it's because of this dumb rule that you can't trade for two designated players and have them both on your Rosser at the same time. But that's where we are mean. In theory..

This is NPR. Welcome back to bulls. Hi, I'm Jesse thorn, my guest car in Kasama directed the new film destroyer starring Nicole Kidman. It's out in theaters now Kusaba also directed EON, flux, the invitation and Jennifer's body the cult horror comedy classic from two thousand nine let's talk about horror for a second. I have not seen your heart films because I'm scared to watch them because I'm scared of horror movies there. You should see both of them. Okay. I don't often admit those gaps in my knowledge, but I am sincere in my being afraid to watch our movies. So I appreciate that. What are the what are the special things about a horror movie that makes it compelling exciting for you either? As if you're a filmmaker well, as as both I would say, what first comes to mind is that horror movies are no matter what the plot is. And it can be many things, obviously, there's so many kinds of horror movies. They are speaking the language of dreams, and that allows for I think opportunities as a viewer to see a story be told in a in a different kind of way, and we still accept it. And as a filmmaker there are ways than that. I can tell a story that are outside of what are the traditional conventions? And I think we can also really vote the power of literally the power of what happens in our dream life. You know, there there's there's a sequence in Texas chainsaw massacre in Toby Hooper's original, which I think is a masterpiece in which we watch a woman run from one utterly terrifying situation to find safety, and we realized that she's just run straight back to her captors. And that's like a classic bad dream that. I mean, you know, that that is a bad dream, but that's the definition of a bad dream and yet it's it. So so you can watch something kind of take on the hallucinate, Tori, logic of a dream which in some ways by watching it as opposed to dreaming it yourself. I think gives me a little bit more. Control over the situation. So while I understand not watching horror films because you're afraid of them. I watched them because I'm afraid of them like I need to feel some control over the experience of my own terror, and it gives me some shape, and so in some ways, I see it as like this opportunity to to safely investigate the horrors of our life as opposed to actually experience them, which is the bigger hor-. You know living living living here on earth. I think is kind of the bigger the bigger terror. You know, I think we've found our pull clover. I have a pretty I have a pretty dark way of looking at the world. And I so for me, and I don't mean to I I want to be more hopeful optimistic person. But the fact is I don't I don't think we have a ton of reason for it. And so for me making movies that make sense of or attempt to say that the act of trying to make sense, regardless of your success in that endeavor is step toward the positive. That's about as much as I can hope for. Another thing about horror movies is that they are one of the only types of film that has majority or at least a plurality of its audience young women. Often. The there though one though, I know the conventional wisdom is that many of its female characters are are terrorized and marginalized by their very female nece, and while that can be true some of our most successful horror films actually have women front and center, which distinguishes it from a lot of other Shahnawaz. I wanna play a scene from your film Jennifer's body from two thousand nine. This is a film that a lot of folks that I know who love this kind of movie love absolutely without without reservation. Take some time. But yes, I'm happy. It's about two high school best friends too young women named needy and Jennifer played by Amanda Siegfried, and Megan FOX and Megan FOX's character is possessed by a demon that leads her to literally consume people and particularly her boyfriend's in this clip from the movie, Jennifer, who's the one with the demon inside her calls up her best friend who's also, by the way, kind of in love with her. And talks about how great it is to be possessed by a demon, essentially..

"In the new thriller destroyer, the coal Kidman stars as a loose cannon l a police officer are critic at large John power. Our says, despite some shortcomings, it takes a familiar story and turns it into something new the history of the movies is teeming with stories about cops who run the gamut from saints like Frank serpico two psychos crazier than dirty hairy yet. The one thing that most movie cops are not is female. And when they are they tend to be sidekicks or like Marge Gunderson in Fargo to inhabit the likable end of the spectrum. This tendency gets exploded in destroyer a fascinating, but flawed Noir thriller, starring Nicole Kidman as a drunken pointedly unlikable cop. It was directed by Karen Kasama who like Kathryn Bigelow has made your career working in genres usually dominated by men, but she's done. So from an even more overtly feminist angle ever since you're terrific debut, girl, fight about a boxer played by Michelle Rodriguez Kusaba has been telling stories of women who aren't afraid to come out swinging. When he first meet Kidman's character LAPD detective, Erin bell. We're not sure she's even capable of lifting her fist. She shockingly ravaged so gone, so scuzzy that Kidman appears to be impersonating.

"Alone right there. Potential four hall of famers all on the same squad. And they were beaten by the Detroit prisons that didn't have a star on the team. That was do you? Remember that two thousand four or Malone was hitting on Kobe's, white whatever it was they didn't win. Do. They win a member. Check and Kobe won three in a row without call Malone. Gary Payton, the beauty of LeBron is rob this year. He's playing the fewest minutes in his career. He's saving his body for the playoffs. He knows that. And what's cool is he's playing almost two full minutes. Fewer that he did last year and his numbers of the exact same twenty-seven. Eight rebounds, seven assists. And he's got the Lakers. I still believe in. I said this in the summer in you killed me and Bussard crush me. This is the second best team in the west. They're not gonna get bounced from the playoffs by anybody except the warriors. And that's because of how good and indestructible LeBron or Thanos. Can we call them Thanos? If you're a superhero guy Viggo, okay? Nobody's taken down. Lebron groin injuries killing him. Kobe. We saw that achilles. That's a year long recovery. You know bounce back from an achilles quickly. All I'm saying is a think it's so premature you don't even know pull up the standings where where will they finish last year the difference between Jason the third seed and the AC was two games. So so they can have a decent record out west and wound up to seventh or eighth seed or six or seven seed, and if they play another one of these teams would have got to go on the road. They could lose in the first round. That's what I'm trying to. Yes, we will. Lebron with an inferior caste in Cleveland last year, go all the way to finals how many the Pacers how many championships did he win and clean on eleven. Asking you how many championships did he wouldn't Cleveland in eleven years. Well, I mean, I think the first now I'm gonna ask you on that how many years you've got to the fine. How many years supporting cast in NBA history? And now. Was burs. Then he returned to Cleveland with kyri and won a championship over the Seventy-three. Will that would say the greatest regular season team in NBA history last two times in a final ditman uncompetitive? Yeah, they have no chance LeBron is one one NBA finals game in the last two years. And now that one game they saw like seventy five percent from the field was it was it was an anomaly, you know, that that's the only able to win when I look at the standings, Lakers two and a half back in the west. It sounds like you think they need to make a move sooner than later because LeBron's getting old and his groin injury could become something major down the road. Like, are you pressing the panic button as you ship the young guys out? It's not a panic button. Is that I don't believe in. Lebron even knows that he can win with what he has. No, no, no, no. It's not that warriors. No, nobody can take down this team. Oh, but wouldn't nihil late? Michael Jordan's bulls in their prime. I'm still curry. I'm telling you right now Houston would if they were matched up say Houston was the number two seed, and and the Lakers were seven Houston would beat the Lakers. I rode elite disarray with them tell the rockets are playing better of late. They've won seven of ten there. The seven seat all the Lakers have to do is avoid the warriors until the Western Conference finals and the Lakers will be there bra on a Mumbai. You see how good he's made Kusaba Clinton has already good last year. He's taken who's all star? Kusuma was good less a rookie. No..

"And why and how so there's no surprise this movie other than like, oh, hey, it's a transformers movie. It's actually like pretty decent. So. Yeah. That's that's Bumblebee, I don't know if anybody has any anybody else's seeing this winter has any other observation about it. I know Chris not gonna go see this. He's gonna wait until home video spite everybody's saying. Good. Yes. Or longer. I think I think that's a good call Chris. So I see it. So he could be the one person that does not like this. I mean, I I don't know if I would say that. I like, I guess I would say that. I liked it. It's fine. It's fine. Okay. So moving on minding the gap this movies on Hulu right now. I would recommend that people. Check this out. If you haven't seen it. It's really like it's a very impressive piece of work. It's a little shapeless. I think I wish it had a little bit more of a of a directness to the approach. It feels like it's a little it's a little bit of a shaggy movie at times, but this documentary about a a group of kids who grew up skateboarding together. And then basically, the the dock sort of picks up with them years later and tracks the emotional toll and and economic toll in really the like the toll. Overall that like a domestic abuse has played in their lives. And it's it's not quite as harrowing as that description makes it sound. There's some funny stuff in here, the tone is generally, you know, fairly light. But then, but it also grapples with issues that I feel like are not really discussed in a in a meaningful way in movies today. The director being Lou is also, you know, he was one of these this crew the skateboarding crew, and he realized that his mom married. This guy who abused him when he was a kid and that affected him in such a way that he wanted to take a wider, look, not just at his small circle of friends. But also this town in Illinois that they live in and try to figure out, you know, get to the root of what is going on with this issue. And it's a it's a wide ranging kind of thing it's but at the same time, it's very specific to this group of people. It's very good. I it's it's it sort of defies description in a lotta ways like I said, I wish it had a little bit more of a punch to it. In terms of like the way that the story is told in doesn't quite go off on so many little tangents. But. Overall. I would I would recommend it. It's it's good. I I don't think it's gonna make like my favorite movies of the year. But but it's very good in. It's it's certainly one of the better documentaries. That's out there easily available right now on Hulu also saw destroyer, which is the new Nicole Kidman movie. That's coming up. I think that would come to theaters on Christmas day. I went to a film independent screening where Karen Karnes make a car in Kusaba. The director was there afterwards. And she was there with the writers and talked about the movie in the it's a very very good movie. I think Nicole Kidman is phenomenal in this movie. She it's like, a it's a modern L A in warr where that is a it take place over para parallel narratives where like she's trying to track the events of a case that are not happening in real time. And then it flashes back to when she was undercover working with the same group of bad guys, basically. And it's. It's a very straightforward. Kind of no nonsense cop thriller in the vein of like a Michael Mann kind of thing. So if you're if you're interested in those kinds of movies, I feel like this one's really gonna stick out to you. It's worth putting on your radar from Nicole Kidman, performance alone. Really? But Sebastian STAN has always is also really good in this movie too. And I I just really liked what Kasama did with this one. It's it's a really solid LA movie. And yeah, I liked the action. There's a Bank robbery sequence. That's very effective. And yeah, I I just enjoyed this one a lot curse..

And a little was trying to come up and help may double team Kusaba after the Lithuanian big man picked up his dribble and little just kind of stumbled a little bit as he was coming to double just rammed his body. Right into Coosa. This is back. So it is a foul in the third on little titles. Have a little bit of foul. Trouble. Brooks four little with three in the post. To Blackmore Braxton excuse me, misses the hook shot. Good rebound. My sterling Manley. Kobe white in the blink of an eye gets the other way at his right elbow jumper. I'd say something that move that. He just did where he comes down and just stops at fifteen feet. That's a deadly deadly moves because everybody nobody's going to be able to stop and stay with him to contest that shot. And I'm telling he put the jets on. And it's also a close enough shot at fifteen feet with that rebound is going to be tight. It should fall within the pain. So the guys that are flooding down the wings could come in and pick up an easy offensive glass. Feel like this season. We have said in just a few seconds or in the blink of an eye or just like that. I mean Carolina has been so frequently able to get down the court so quickly with Kobe wide at the controls. Saint francis. With the basketball right baseline flag. His pass up the sideline tip by little. But then touched by Braxton out of bounce. So the tar heels force the turnover, and they'll have the ball of the fifteen point lead thirteen eleven to go in the ballgame.

"Today. We always have to work in one NBA because you text about the NBA. Dynasty. Listen when I came on here a couple of weeks ago and said Durant if he leaves the Lakers are the spot. You know, the sentiment is starting to trend that way. Now, I believe after the Lakers go to Orlando and Miami and win this weekend. They will be ten or eleven in six. The Monday headline will be warriors envy. Lakers cohesive love to hear. Seriously. The Lakers are looking good. I know the schedule softened up, but they beat Portland twice your blazers Portland. And they were clearly when I was there. It's clearly a deeper better roster than Portland in Portland. It's a very good upper Western Conference play tried to put Jake Lehman. And he had a front row seat for that. But on the warriors. I mean, when did you hear Steve Kerr say that, you know, they've got some major internal issues. Yes. You play the audio earlier like that's not good a month into the season. And this cloud of Kevin Durant is gonna hover. I think the one guy that can stop it. It's Steph curry, I think at some point he's going to have to be like K D, can can you give us a read here in Durant? Not going to he's not gonna why would he do that? So I think at some point people are gonna look like boy, LeBron's really got these young guys in order Lonzo ball's about you. I know you love Lonzo. He's about to play a lot now with running out when you're at the Lakers games. Two things jump out to you. Javale McGee is way more important than you think. Oh, yeah. You can see the communication. Secondly, Lonzo compla- Lonzo has worked is bought off for three point shots. Lonzo's. I sorta got on that roster. He's top three or four guys who I want shooting a three, and listen, I talk about this on my podcast. This is sports gambling podcast when you watch games closely. You want to see the players go over and pick up their teammate when they go down. Yeah. You see that with the Lakers. I don't know if you've noticed it Kusaba hits the deck three guys over to pick him up. And I watched the warriors last night. I didn't see a lot of that against the rockets, and it's a little troubling. Because one of the best shows in sports, but that stuff you can't quantify. I like numbers as well.

We break down what 5G will really be like (The 3:59, Ep. 475)
"Welcomes drift. Roger Chan, I'm Joanie sauce. We kicked off a new package on five g. today in our leadoff story takes a look at what five g. will actually feel like one launches and this is my story. I, I took care to basically type poke holes at all the hype around five g. basically don't expected to change your life right away. Coverage is going to be spotty or non existent. Your phones might run out of batteries really fat or run a power really fast. They're my problem with content getting onto five. JIRA game kicked back down for four g. basically all the problems we saw when we transitioned LT probably see with five. Jeez, sounds amazing. Right? Eventually. So yeah, look, this is the excitement over five g. I think justified in terms of what it can do for us over the long term when this actually gets built out and as a bit more mature. But the sore is really on reminder that with all the hype like early on, that things aren't going to go smoothly as everyone says, it will what's for win will reach that point of maturity that pseudo maturity like prematurely, but not like clunky doesn't actually work. I would say twenty twenty s probably the the better timeframe t mobile has said that they they're promising nationwide network by twenty twenty nationwide by twenty twenty. And that'll that that'll definitely get a couple of faster if they can buy with sprint eighteen Reisen probably be not that far behind. And then most of the Asian countries have started building out or will build up most of their networks at that point. So. I think that's the point where like you can start to actually get excited g. Okay. Next up our own even Shanklin had a nice breakdown on how Google uses computational photography to Busey ability of the single camera on the pixel three, for instance, uses to make better portrait photos takes a budget, exterior shots and combines them for a better low light photos night shot and got some because super high rez is basically making up for the lack of an optical zoom lens uses data to kind of fill in the blanks. So Kusaba is this enough Joan to convince you that only one cameras, all you need on a phone. You know how I like a multiple cameras on phones that Samsung four-camera four shooting, but I think that sounds great. I mean, it sounds really cool the ability to do all these fans now is the computational photographer. You what also enables the stuff like the wide selfie mode and like the. The thing that will fix when you are blinking in the middle of your photo. So the white selfie mode, they actually will have a second camera on the front. That is a wide selfish Cam. So that's not that's not competent. You can't really use data for that before in terms of fixing things. Succinct blemishes. Yeah, that's what that probably what Google's Bagga trick soul about. Lastly, Joan you were covering. Noth- looks earnings last night and if there was some concern that those can be a blip or well, yeah. Last quarter. With earnings, always about expectations of anything. The only thing that people ever care about enough Lexus, how many subscribers did you add? Three months ago. Netflix said we had a subscribers just not as many as we said. We want and everyone freaked out. So last night people are really worried that maybe this was Netflix standing on the brink of downturn, especially because other companies and technology haven't been doing so great, but Netflix said, you know, he's up, you have this. We actually like, did a lot better than that. And so everyone freaked out. But yeah. Interesting that that they're seeing that success given the sheer number of streaming services that are launching now like, yeah, Netflix is just for the core. The no one really gives up, right. I mean, people always say, if you're going to have a streaming service, the mindset that consumers have is like you're going to have maybe y'all, two, maybe three, and one of them's going to be not lex, very, go for full coverage on CNN and Joni.

"So is a lot of times when you're getting tweets out of film festivals, it's people who just walked out of the theater and are are excited about the movie in either positively or negatively, but also like wanna be one of the first people comment on it, which is a very heady thing to do like it's just really exciting when you're one of the first people because then everybody like has thought. So yeah, it's it's, I didn't actually tweeting very much like immediate reviews from stuff because honestly, I wanted to go outside and talk to people about what I saw or I had again line for movie or you know what I mean? So I don't have a lot of tweets like that. Had a fantastic, but yeah, people do tend to. I don't wanna say over hype it because I don't think that what. Feeling is insincere, but it's impacted by an environment that is like really gung ho for what they're seeing. You know what I mean? Well, that did not sway you apparently on Halloween, which which I think is a good thing. It's like, you know, knows authentic experience. If like even in spite of all that excitement, it's still didn't kind of have make make an impact in the way that you wanted to. But yeah, we'll see. I'm looking forward to checking it out when the movie comes out in a few weeks. So that's Halloween. What else are we watching? Christie. So I'll make the so I saw destroyer, which is funny. I was talking about prestige picks this is way more procedure genre. It is like a gritty cop movie done by Karen Kusaba. Nam. Sorry. Corrine Corrine Kazama I think I'm saying I ain't right. Invitation, right? Yeah. The invitation Jennifer's body and and flocks girl site, and she's fascinating and the movie stars Nicole Kidman is dislike hardened cop who had like a undercover job, go wrong. And now she feels like this is her moment that she can make it right, and it's people are of referring to it as like dirty Harriet in context or in a impress. And yeah, I guess that that tracks it's a really, it's it's a really good drama. It's very exciting and I feel like the less, you know about it, the better. So that's kind of all I wanna say from it's coming out this December and people should just go see it because it's a really station crime drama with performance, a really knock you out. Like I mean, I think Nicole Kidman is a great actress, but this is like a role. I have never seen her play before, and it's so fun to watch her just be like a jerk cop. You're not prepared for it. It sounds like something I've always wanted and just would never have. So yeah, you can't. We, it feels like a mad lib. It's just so good. Tatyana MAs lonnie's in it and stashes STAN and Toby Keppel's people, you recognize it, but it might take you a minute because men they, these are like some characters who are living hard lives. So it's it's a very non-glamorous cop movie, like it's not like one of those fancy movies of like, you know, she's gonna get her righteous revenge like its way grittier way uglier and just delicious. Apparently I'm hungry destroyer and it'll be on theaters. December looks awesome. What else we watching. I'm gonna jump ahead a little bit. I was gonna talking about bad time royale, but I'm sure you guys. We'll talk about that soon because out super soon. Briefly, very fun drew go Dr does good stuff, but I wanna take a moment to talk about Madam Yankova is fine literature club, which is one of my favorite movies from the festival and one that I don't know if and when people get to see here, it's an array is Isreaeli dark comedy that has an element of fantasy. It's actually considered the first fantasy film ever made an Israel and it is about a secret society of women who invite men over for dinner every week. And I wanna say little about it as possible, but it's it's not a, it's not a dinner at wanna be invited to. I'll say that to the gentlemen in the room, but it's very funny and it's it's made by his writer director who is just so sharp..

"Before start taping, you know, come up with your three biggest camp curiosities or or you know the things that you're watching for jotted down three myself. So let's just go back and forth on this. What's it? Doesn't have to be an order which your biggest now. Now I'm saying biggest that would be an order back. Fine. Well, what is doing in order? What's your biggest camp curiosity? I've actually got him in order, so I've, I've got your back here. My number one curiosity, this is going to be. I'm guilty of, you know, being close to the situation. But yeah, I live in LA. So obviously the Lakers is what everyone's talking about. Yeah, but I think it's the the kind of position battles or the tension between the young guys and the veterans, and like I'm like, you know, coastal elite. So you know, we're not really like grow violence, but when I look at what kind of a tree hugger from Oregon, right? But when I look at this Lakers training camp, it feels like the most likely place in the league that a fistfight will break out at some point. I mean, it's almost like fraternity hazing where you've got Lonzo and Rondo Rondo is like the senior lonzo's the freshman. You've got a Beasley Kusaba potentially pairing off. You've got Ingram and land Stevenson. They have just brought it some very stubborn hard headed type veteran personalities, and they've got some young guys. Who I do need to show that that they're grownups frankly, that they're like ready to be big impact players. And I think the Lakers will be way better off as the season goes forward and into the playoffs. If the young guys proved that they're capable of starting in closing games, like I think I would much rather, you know, in the first round of the playoffs, the Lakers knowing that Lonzo has improved enough to stay on the court. That Ingram has sort of emerged as that number two scoring guy, and that coups MAs, like made enough progress defensively where you can kind of keep him on the court. Like if they do find themselves heavy to default to those veterans and sort of big moments in the postseason. I actually think that would be a kind of a bad sign overall, you know, for the state of the Lakers in year one with LeBron. Yeah, I agree. And yeah, they were number one on my list to on my list that I said, I wasn't going to rank, but ranked anyway, it's it's unavoidable. Right? Like one, it's LeBron's team wherever he is. That's always going to be fascinating. But also we just never seen this. We've never seen LeBron this kind of. Situation, he leaves Cleveland for Miami. He was going there to join up with prime year, Dwayne, Wade's and prime years. Chris, Bosh, we didn't know how good they would be or how many championships it would be. We just knew there's a lot of talent from day one, and we goes back to Cleveland. He's got a young kyri and Kevin love, but they're both all star type players. And there was there was no question about the potential for great success there. This is the first time that LeBron has gone somewhere where we think that they could be the should be a playoff team because I've got LeBron and some people say, no, no, no, they're actually gonna be top four, and there are plenty of people who don't think they're gonna make the playoffs at all. So just by the broadest strokes, it's fascinating. And on top of it, my God, we've got the the biggest drummer producers of the NBA in the last ten years, the Lakers in one place LeBron and wherever he is. And now those two things are the same. They've, they've collided we've got some super mega turbo, circus it's going to be insane. And for all the reasons you've you've are ticketed. Those positional battles will be in. Interesting. There is a divide between the youth and the veterans, and Luke Walton is a young coach with a ton of pressure on them in a ton of expectations..

"I mean, is his first movie camera. Does he have those first time filmmaker tendencies or the fact he's worked with enough big names maybe have leaked into the making a better talent. He does mostly a really, really good job. He's a little too close ups for my liking. There's a lot of close ups and I wish he would pull the camera back a little bit here and there, but he's he. He does a really good job at capturing the electric feeling of a live concert, like you feel like you're really there. You feel like you're in this exciting live music moment. So he's he's really good at capturing that, and he's really good at the the big character moment. So you know the facts, this first directory, all feature is is very impressive. So Chris, one of the. I know you're really excited to see at tiff is the new Halloween film. What did you think about that one? It was good. So it's hard to talk about this. 'cause there's there's something I really hate about the movie and it's a spoiler so I can't really like going to tales, but there's, there's this in my view. There's one plot point involving the new doctor character who's taken over for Dr Loomis, Michael, Myers, psychiatrist, and there's a, there's a running plotline with him. That is so bad that I shot. It was in the movie, but once you get beyond that, it's it's a lot of fun. I mean, if you're if you're hoping for, you know, the slow. Chills of John carpenter's original. You're not gonna get that because that's not what this movie is. But if you're in the mood for a surprisingly brutal slasher movie and a very well made one at that, you're gonna you're gonna have a lot of fun with this. It's one of the things he does really well as it actually makes Michael Myers. Scary again, he's he's so he's like an unstoppable, like killing force in this, he didn't just kill people. He obliterates them just constantly like slamming people through walls and snapping necks, ripping jaws off. It's the and like, I'm not. I'm not squeamish guy, but even I even as I was watching it, I was like, Jesus, This is exceptionally brutal. So, and that brutality makes the character really, really scary. He's because he's just he's constantly on the move, constantly killing people. So and I saw it at the midnight maintenance screening, which I think helped lack is the audience aged up. They went like ape shit for it. So. I would recommend seeing this with a very into audience and you're gonna have fun with it. Speaking of people being destroyed a here destroyer, if a film festival, is that correct? It is, and I'm a little surprised because last night I was talking to some people and I found out that a lot of people don't actually like this movie. I'm not in the minority because it has good reviews, but I, I was blown away by this and a lot of people seem to have problems when it. But for me, it really did the trick. It's the, it's the latest from Karen Kusaba who directed the invitation, which is a fantastic slow-burn horror film and starting to call Kim in as a, she's -tective and she's trying to track down this criminal from her past. And this is really interesting blend of like character study and crime thriller, which I really haven't seen in a while and it's exceptionally well done the Culkin. I mean, every time I read review of a movie with Nicole came and I feel like. Idiot, being like by the way, Nicole Kidman is greatness. Everyone everyone does that, but she is. She is really good in this end, Karen you misdirection is is phenomenal. I, he's quickly becoming one of my favorite filmmakers. She does such a great job capturing oppressive menacing atmosphere of this movie. So I, I really loved it is now. My favorite fast, but. It's up there with. I think like my second favorite would be burning, which is really really good. And I saw if Beale street could talk this morning, the Barry Jenkins movie and that is incredible. It's it's emotional. It's incredibly well-directed. Barry Jenkins is. Unstoppable. As far as I'm concerned at this point, the also saw the new Steve McQueen movie widows, which seems like a a major left turn. If the guy made twelve years of slave, how different is it?.
