It's Sundance Time Again

"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas in for John Horn. But he's actually sitting right here beside me because by the time you hear this. He'll be at the Sundance Film Festival. John Thanks for taking time before you pack your bags my pleasure. I love the fact that I'm here but I'm not here John. There are dozens of feature films film screened at Sundance. Of course tell me about some of this year's most anticipated entries. I'M GONNA lean towards documentaries if you look at the movies that are nominated for the documentary feature academy me where this year three of them premiered at Sundance a year ago. American factory honey land and edge of democracy. And if you look at the very first night at the Sundance Dance Film Festival. There are new documentaries from producers. You might have heard of Barack and Michelle Obama. They've called Crip camp which is about the disability rights movement. There's another documentary about Taylor swift and about why. She is becoming a little bit more political and that's just in one theater in one night. Well one of the documentary entries premiering at Sundance that I wanted to ask you about It's when it's trying a lot of controversy and that's the Kirby Dick and amy during documentary on the record. It focuses on the sexual assault allegations against hip hop mogul Russell Simmons. The film was being executive. Co produced by Oprah Winfrey set to be released on Apple. TV then Winfrey suddenly. He withdrew support and some say. It was under pressure from Russell Simmons. She denies this and says it's because of questions arising from one of the alleged victims. What's to become come of this documentary on the record? Well it is going to show at the festival I mean I think there is the question whether or not Sundance was going to pull it The fact that Oprah Winfrey withdrew her support that apple. TV Hit pause in. The documentary is very unusual. And Kirby and amy have said listen. We think we've made a really good good film. We don't understand what they are complaining about. All of the edits and suggestions up until the time. The picture was locked where minor little things it does feel feel like Russell. Simmons complained to Oprah about the documentary. It's unclear if Oprah thought it was unfair or that featured one woman story over others the Booze GonNa show but for a film to go to the festival with this much. Uncertainty is highly unusual. Yeah not to get too far afield on this but I wonder if Oprah pulling away from this the project could somehow damage her own brand in this in this era of me too. Well I think she has said that. She believes the women who are accusing Russell Simmons of sexual assault and harassment. So I don't think she's saying I am not believing them anymore. I think she has to her. Mind legitimate questions about the documentary. Yeah it is important that she is on board or not on board because her producing does suggest that there is a level of quality ability and credibility to it and the fact that she's leaving it does ultimately damage. I think the standing of the film Another film to ask you about. Was this four part documentary. On Hillary Clinton Clinton. It'll be available on Hulu. She will also be attending Sundance for the first time to do promotion for this film. What you know about it and you know any any buzz around it? I guess I know a fair amount about it I'm GONNA be doing. QNA With Hillary Clinton at the festival is a four part series. That has a behind the scenes footage of her running against against Donald Trump. But it's really about her political career and about how things stand today so words at all. Hillary is a participant in this documentary. It s you said she'll be at the festival and she'll be talking with me. She says a lot of the documentary. I hope she says even more when we sit down to have a conversation. There's one other film I wanted to ask you about. And that's a a little film called feels good man and it's an indie production looking at the rise of of this comic pepe the frog that was actually created by L. A. based cartoonist and it sort of became an emblem for the outright. Who took this image and kind of started using it for antisemitic means racists memes all kinds of really nasty stuff? What do you know about the film and Are you going to see it? Yeah I'm definitely going to see. The artist is named fury. And it's about how something something becomes an icon for hate. And how the artist behind that I contract reclaim it and I think if you look more broadly at a lot of the documentaries that are playing the festival a lot of them are about what's going on in the world right now. There's a new documentary about the kids who survived the park. Land shooting about what they're doing to fight against against Gun. Violence US kids. I think that there's another documentary called early. Bird it's about the helicopter news pilot Zoey Tur and about what her works has about the tabloid of news and the Oj. Trial Voice State is a documentary about seventeen year. Old Boys a thousand from Texas says who join up to build a representative government from the ground up so wherever you look Especially in documentaries. There are a lot of films about the current state of the country. And what we might do to fix it. And what are some of the feature films. You're looking forward to checking out. I know that things that are kind of top of our sundance card include downhill. This is a remake of the movie force majeure a Foreign Language move from a couple years ago it stars. Julia Louis Dreyfuss Will Ferrell. It's made by nat facts and Jim Rash. Who did a movie called called way way back not that long ago Vigo Mortenson who is one of my favorite actors hell yeah written directed stars in a movie called following that I think is partially in Spanish? So there's nothing Vigo can't do. There's an Anthony Hopkins movie based on a play called the father. There's a movie about Gloria Steinem in many different iterations directed by Julie. Taymor you might know her from the Lion King. You know the other thing that we should talk about our number of movies that are going to sundance that are looking Ford distribution and one of the things that a lot of people forget is that Sundance is not only a film festival. It's a film market and it'll be really interesting to see given how a poorly some of the movies from last year as well at the Box Office if the checkbooks will be open s much as they were a year ago.

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the most most anticipated movies of twenty twenty men. And we've been talking all about the movies of Twenty Nine Thousand Nine on our various Oscars awards conversation shows. We need to look forward now. The reason we need to look forward is because new movies are opening and they're not these dingy horror movies that they try to open January third and trick people into thinking might be decent. Here's there's actual big budget studio movies with movie stars this weekend. We have little movie called doolittle and a little movie called bad boys for life. We've seen both of these movies. He's rolling GonNa talk about one today. We'll talk about the other one later next week. Hopefully you will have seen that other one after that but mostly we're GONNA be talking about movies. We don't really know that much about other than the names and the titles and we're talking about why we're looking forward to them. Let's talk about the big picture aspect of movie going in twenty twenty. I'll just say as I've mentioned at the end of the year last year. The little worried about who will people go to the movies this year. Do you think that I'm justified in my concern. One hundred percent. We talk about this on every other podcast that we make now for the big picture because moviegoing has been Ben. I don't even know if I WANNA say in a state of crisis but it has been changing and the way that people consume movies has been changing pretty rapidly and dramatically for several years now but this feels like the come to Jesus Year I agree so obviously twenty. Nineteen was deeply loaded especially by Disney with mega event movies. Not just the vendors endgame not just Star Wars Skywalker but the lion king and Aladdin reboots Dumbo reboot toy story. Four came through. There were a lot of movies. Movies that Disney at least perceived as moviegoing events now in addition to that we got a lot of great fun stuff we got once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite became a box office success. And we'll the four versus Ferrari and did very well. There's always going to be surprises. I would guess that the movies that we're going to talk about here and you're gonNA choose ten and I'm GONNA choose ten. They'll be some some big ASS. Hits hits among those movies but the movie is not the schedule is not loaded like it was last year. I think there will be a distinct or of panic panic around. What's going on at the box office? Pretty much by April or May I think we have our first taste of the panic. That's coming though. Yes yes so this week you and I saw the movie do little which stars Robert Downey junior as Dr Doolittle Let me say this movie is terrible. It is terrible will in a way that I have not experienced in my adult life and I was in a deep amount of pain watching it. I don't think you had negative reaction to the movies I did though well L.. This movie is very bad. Let's just get that affront if it is not a successful movie but I do kind of put on my. This is a kids movie helmet at some point eight and I think I'm not looking to be as rewarded on a deep emotional or cinematic level as you are or once. I realized that the movie is Robert. Downey junior talking to animated animals. Sure here's my thing. This movie makes cats look like grizzly man. Like it's really true. I think that I had a better time doolittle than I did at cats. That's astonishing still worst experience that I've pat movie in like five years. There was no plot and it was creepy people singing weird songs about what kind of cats they are I like I can't I know I've said exactly that five times but I will never wrapped my head around the fact that hundreds of people sought that that was a good idea. The wanting one thing. The cats and Dr Doolittle do have in common is that they are both based on previously existing Ip. There's been not one but two different iterations of Dr doolittle over the years. Of course the very famous nineteen sixty seven version with REX Harrison. And then Eddie Murphy came back as a doctor doolittle of sorts in the I believe in the early outs. This version has had some trouble in the reason. It is so bad ad will the reasons it is so bad manifold. Let's start with some of the production problems so in April twenty nineteen Hollywood reporter had a report about the struggles of the making of this movie. They wrote the new photography lasted twenty one shooting days not including new postproduction work according to insiders and came after an overhaul courtesy of Chris. McKay the helmer the lego Batman movie. Now Chris McKay was not the original director of this Dr doolittle movie which I believe was originally called the voyage of Dr Doolittle. Yes and it was written and directed directed by Stephen Geoghegan Listener. Stephen Geoghegan wrote and directed a movie called Syria which does not in any way resemble the story telling the joke writing the the general disposition of doolittle. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. It appears that Stephen Geoghegan was just a little bit out of his his depth in making a movie like this teach on report. Sources say that it's become apparent to the studio and producer. Susan Downey Joe Roff and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Last fall that the movie budget at one hundred and seventy five million dollars needed some surgery. Geoghegan is known for his Oscar. Winning work on layer dramas traffic and Suryana is his first time tackling visual effects heavy production. That was also comedic in tone own. Self they bring in these new folks Chris McKay among them. Also I believe the writer of the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles series was brought in to Do some script doctoring. Bring didn't help I don't think we need to recap necessarily story. It is technically a voyage. doolittle does go on a voyage. Why do you think they've changed the title? Because I have no idea. Maybe they're just hoping that if all you hear is little. Then you'll think of the other. Innovations I have Dr doolittle and then go see a movie when you say you. Who Do you mean? I people with children people who go to the movies. I don't know. Would you recommend this movie. The parents parents with children. I don't know what your life is like or what your parents rearing is like. I really don't. I don't know what you're looking for in a experience with your your children. We don't have to talk about the entire movie but can we talk about a couple qualitative issues with the film. Fire Way you turn to me about twenty minutes into this movie or maybe it was like seven minutes but it felt like twenty. It felt to me like nine hundred. And you pointed out aghast that Downey junior performance was dubbed not just align here there but literally his all of his voice work the entire film the entire fell. It's very obvious as you're watching the movie s and I also have to say the dubbing is. I turned back to you and asked whether other Robert Downey junior is supposed to be Scottish. or whether there were some troubling racist elements to his voice. It really is all over the place in not got a great way. So the dubbing does not achieve anything additive to the movie. We can only speculate what had happened. My guess is Robert Downey. Junior is an adventurous actor and he likes to. He likes to make choices certainly felt like he made a choice in the original shooting of this film used a certain voice or accent and then they the production decided. This isn't going to work now. It's possible that there was even a sort of production error like it wasn't properly recorded. Yeah that'd be incredible mismanagement of this movie. That's in play. But the other actors that appear in the movie and we should say a great many quality actors appear in this movie up chief among among them Michael Sheen doing his damnedest to play a compelling villain and my beloved. Jessie Buckley shows up in this movie. With two lines of dialogue. She sleeps on a bed. Basically throughout the film Talladega how. That is Jessie Buckley until about sixty minutes. And it's very strange. Antonio banderas shows up Antonio Matarese Oscar contender Antonio Banderas. Who is fine but none of those figures seem to be dubbed? They all seem to be using their natural speaking voices. And there's no eighty are in play here so the whole thing is just absolutely confounding and it is highly distracting as you're watching the movie every time you see Dr Doolittle onscreen and he is on screen all the time because he is the titular character. You're like why. Why is the track sink? Not Correct with the film. This is a film released by a major studio. How did how did this? Hundreds of million dollars spent on it. I don't really know it's it's it's staggering and an unfortunate You wrote down here that the dramatic climax of this movie is literally a Dragon Fart. Which is true spoilers? I guess I often as people in my generation do misuse the word literally. But in this case it's literally what what happens. It is literally what happens and I just I I was in and I was in pain in the eightieth minute of this movie. I was like God Damn Emmett. I'm supposed to be alive in the world. A little community harrogate that his bad movie. But I think I said to you afterwards. It was no less sensical to me than say Melissa sent. And I think I probably turn to you more times during the listen to it was like what the hell is happening opening. And what are we serving like the children of America

Prince Harry pitched Meghan's voiceover work to Disney CEO at 'The Lion King' premiere

"Talk about more Megan markle really. There's more my God. I did thirty minutes the other day. Oh boy there's way more of course and I'm sure they'll be even more. This is like an ongoing big story. All right as we spoke about and I mentioned I think. And and it's obvious one of the big motivators for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to make this shift in their royal life. Life is for money and to allow Meghan Markle to work and she's already got a job. You know what the rules of the crown there established for a reason and or multiple reasons queen. Elizabeth is a lot older older than prince. Harry like decades upon decades. She's seen it all and she knows how things work. Very and Megan have really opened up. The most massive acid can of worms because now everything that they do actually is gonNA come under greater scrutiny for for example doc over the holidays and actually still. They've spent time in Vancouver Island at the home of some really rich rich Russian person and they have refused to reveal the name of whom that is their new role. They want to take part in there not abdicating. They don't want to abdicate. They still want to keep their titles and they still want to be a part of the royal family. They still claim to want to go on engagements for Queen Elizabeth and represent her in the UK and abroad so I would think that they should still will be transparent right so right now. They're not even living up to what they say they want to do. They're not being transparent. They were flat out asked by the media to maim aim that rich Russian person and they refused so time that into what I was starting with. Meghan markle just got a gig with Disney. She signed in some kind of voiceover deal going to do some some voice over project with them in exchange for a donation to charity however however as soon as I heard that the biggest red bulb but that the expression red bulb is that is that a that mashing mall. Whatever it doesn't matter we know what you know what I mean right? The biggest the biggest light bubble the the biggest warning or whatever went off in my brain. I'm like let me break it down for you all yes Disney's Disney's GonNa make a donation to the elephant charity and they're GonNa pay her DA. It's like pay me but I come with strings. I'm not going to search for free. You pay me but you also have to give a big donation to this charity. And if that's the case if that's the case I think they need to be transparent as well right given how they are positioning their new role. I think they're still public. Figures like politicians and they need me to be transparent and if they don't and they're not and then if it does become public knowledge in the future because Disney is a public company. It will come to bite them in the but this is GonNa Backfire in so many ways. I cannot wait to see it all go down. I don't think it matters. They decided that they don't want to take the royal family money or money from the people there and they want to earn their own money and they're still doing a little bit of both. They're giving money and taking money at the same time. I'm not really sure the bites them. It sounds like they're being transparent. They're just not telling you everything as most people don't you don't tell us everything of how your money comes in nor do I I just think they wanna be more normal in that regard and yet they're still giving. They're also like a politician and if a politician straight up asked about something and then straight straight up refuses to answer that's not being transparent however they are being transparent because they're saying we're it's tit for tat. We are are not taking the money from the crown any longer but we are taking money from other people. We don't have to tell you. We'll continue to work for the crown. We just won't take their money. We'll just do it free when we want to do it. So they're just basically hired work while this also that does bring up other and this is why I I didn't even mention this last episode. This is why it is such a complicated issue. Because in America there are all sorts of rules around this. Can you see that with trump children. You know those that like like the Russian whomever or like Disney there could be undue influence and access us to the the the royal family to the crown to the Queen bought through Harry and Meghan. That's a stretch. It's not a stretch. It's it's it's absolutely Louis Accurate yeah but they're not Americans. I mean she's not filing taxes in America. She is not living here right is she. Thought they were GonNa live in Canada or something but she's still filing taxes in America she has to legally. She hasn't renounced her American citizenship. That's how being in America works. If you make money you have to report your money right. Yeah Yeah it's interesting. I also I saw this video. That was wild last year. What did that movie come out? I don't remember but whatever the Lion King movie came out Harry and Meghan went when the Lion King Premier in London and video just surfaced that a fan talk of prince like oh I got this is how successful people do shit and not even having to do with like being the one percent of the one percent which Prince Harry is but a lot of successful so people they just ask for things and your that successful when you're that privileged if you ask for things people don't want to tell you know so so at the Lion King Premier Prince. Harry had a conversation with the head guy at all Disney Bob Eiger and you could hear you're him say did you know she does voiceovers. He's like no. I didn't know that he's like you did it. No like he said it twice yes and then. He's like she'd love to do voiceovers servers like way before this is all announced they were already working on these things Ah I love it I love it. I love everything about it. I can't wait to see how this continues to play

2020 Golden Globes Predictions

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up

The Entertainment of 2019: Year in Review

"It interesting year for of the world of entertainment and in terms of the movie screen to get to this explosion of Netflix and all these other different platforms you don't have to go to the big movie theater unless you want the full immersive experience and I always suggest you also get some cookies because as the time of the year but just I think the wives with you enjoy the experience but but I know some of the things the fact you have this posted on your website James person dot com is the ruling over a declining box office because here we have all this if you know the big money is made international especially China will than that with the whole trade the issues going back and forth the editing of certain films so what's going on here is this eventually the demise of the traditional box office expectations in the traditional theaters another been saying that for years with new technology well it it's being yeah it's shrinking kind of traditional movie other than the big franchise brand box office because even though the box office has gone down for the fifth time this decade it's down a record number and the executives and the Hollywood met and many of them I work with they are living in a kind of a denial world I I they know that if these two technological things are you spoke about the fact that you can have a very powerful home theater experience now you know with everybody has a big screen high definition television you're bringing some robots was a I they could pretend like they're part of the crowd you know they can make noise going on cell phones whatever you like yeah but usually because Disney bought Lucasfilm and marble and they have all the biggest intellectual property ownership concept movies they took eighty percent of the top ten so the top ten films of the year eight out of the ten from Disney that's a record Disney also took in ten billion dollars worldwide in their film box office which is also a record but at the same time the box office is down the number of people go to the movies is down and I think it's not just because of the technology I think it's because of the contact and I think what it is is that there's these old concepts things like story characters people long for in his words of Martin Scorsese got highly criticized for speaking out against Marvel superhero movies but there there are more of like a thrill ride in many cases than they are white the kind of story telling that Hollywood became famous for and so because of that you know like the number one movie by actually number one movie of the year and of all time is the ventures and gag which is always the classic not that it's it's a bad movie I mean it's an entertaining movie buddy it's it's all action special effects sci fi superhero fantasy type thing and the others get in the top ten there's captain Marvel there's spider man far from home with the Star Wars the latest Star Wars wars installment the risers creek sky worker these are all from the same bill during it yet all marble or Lucasfilm in there these kinds of movies many of course you have sequels like Toy Story four and frozen was it the golden read books and we're gonna get more and more is that all is well yeah but some of that you get to the new generations and its radio Disney used to do as a by the way for the tuning in talking James person Jim person dot com is my second house over a pop culture among other things but you know Disney had a formula for years back to real DHS and everything else stay AT and into the theaters before that alone every seven years or so they would release like Snow White or something and then they'd go back into the vault and the they keep capturing new generations was masterful now one of the big deals this year's Disney plus the debt is just phenomenal with with what's there you don't really need a lot of other things but it's it's it's all available now so that's another example of how quickly the staff changes your inner exactly what you're talking about by the way for new generations of a new iteration was the remake it with live action The Lion King which was the number two movie any captured a whole new generation of of movie that had captured a previous generation so yeah Disney has the intellectual property so that when they launch their streaming service Disney plus they did something that a lot of people in Hollywood one really freaked out about and then they had a a movie starring Anna Kendrick cold no well it was never released in any it went direct to streaming we haven't even heard that concept direct just dreaming twenty one Disney does it then the people in the industry say oh my gosh this is a trend in the Irish men bad movie that's generating all the on her because of her the foreman should Martin Scorsese unfortunately it has that crazy man Robert De Niro at that but he's consistent and you got a treatment because his movie the molar report on ice the musical didn't do well this year so what is so loved that concept I really do I really do and I I would have given them the Laurie yeah I would go see that if Robert Muller was ice skating I would go see it for sure but but this one it went there was a lady and the tramp remake Disney which and that way director strict streaming I was mentioning the Irishman and there's another movie called marriage is story these are both Oscar bait movies after only one month they went streaming so there could be a new trend in that's good that caters to people that create their own entertainment peered at home and but the only thing is I mean I anecdotally I mean I have friends an average six myself I remember you know we were when we just had cable and all of a sudden we had out hundreds of cable channels and sitting there and I couldn't find anything to watch on cable channel and now people experience that they say oh I'm going through the cable channels I'm going through Netflix I don't see anything I want to watch so I'm gonna watch it's a wonderful life for the eighteen hi so that means there's a vacuum out there for I guess what we would call traditional entertainment and maybe family friendly which is by the way in the end that's where Hollywood makes most of its money because all the top ten films are pretty much the you know there there's no all over you friendly films at the most there's a P. G. thirteen type superhero films that have some action scenes chill Hollywood makes its money with family friendly films and then they attack families with the awards speaking of

Falling and Getting Back Up

"So I felt earlier this week. I was getting out of the shower. And my equilibrium must have been off of consciousness. I fell backwards. I don't think it hurt myself but I've been taking the lead this week. I mean privates about getting older but in the same week somebody that I know I won't say who it is. I don't want them to feel bad. But they fell off their hover board for a little bit. They didn't WanNa get back on the hover board and then they also didn't want to go outside again with it I get it. I still haven't learned to ride a bike doc and partly because I fell off the badly when I was a teen and I just have to get back on. Sometimes it can be hard to get back on because you're afraid of how your past hurt but while we were watching the new lion king. My brother-in-law mentioned there's one line that's missing. That's in the original animated linking. The line. Were Rafiki says Oh oh yes the past can hurt but the way I see it you can either run from it or learn from it and they kind of made me think about when we fall and other physically or not physically early. What happens when we don't want to get back on because you remember that that hurt you remember pain that you feel? You don't WanNa get back into it. The things I've gotten back into because of the pain because of the hurt and because it's the end of the year make me think about this next year. I'm I'm GONNA fall again. Hopefully not physically but I will make mistakes this past year. I left Karaoke doing on twitch things until this past vacation where icing in from an audience three to four times. I did not want to get back into Karaoke. I didn't WanNa make the mistake of failing a song or stuff like that but after doing that Karoki. I've I started doing it again on. Twitter sings in one of the song that's on twitter. Things now is secure. Try everything from Zootopia and one of the lines. I love the secure song long is I won't give up. I won't give out try everything even though I could fail and I love that idea we could fail. We're GONNA fall. Things aren't going to go right and many times. I've failed again doing these podcasts. And you streams things that having Gone Reich on the right way but look at it Renou episode one twenty two tonight tonight. I'll be recording episode. One thirty nine of my gaming podcast protecting a dear friend about has taken twenty eight twenty nine years to finally see what what am I gives his is in this world and how I can contribute back so this week in this year when we fall when we fail. Let's get right back up. Let's continue at it again. Because Rock Isley. The person that fell off the board by the end of the day doing so much better than they were the beginning of the day and before anybody says this is not one of those words. That's going to catch on fire. We got a lot of the reviews.

Netflix, Golden Globes, Large Caps vs. Index Funds

Netflix, Golden Globes, Large Caps vs. Index Funds

"We're GONNA look at large cap. Stocks Relative to index funds. We're going to pour one out for Paul Volcker but we're going to start with the entertainment industry the Golden Globe. Nominations came out this morning for film and television the most nominations in film I went to Netflix with seventeen. Nominations followed by Sony and Disney with second and third respectively. Most nominations in television netflix with seventeen. HBO Second Hula Third. And I will just add parenthetically broadcast television completely. Shut out of the nominations for television. Where do you WanNa go with this because I we were talking a little bit this morning about this? Obviously this is A nice feather in the capital Net flicks and I think part of the reason is not just because it's nice to get this kind of recognition but also because is for anyone who's wondering about the money they're spending on content. Ted Surround US can point to this and say no. I feel like from a quality standpoint. We're doing pretty pretty well. Yeah I mean I I. I don't. I'm not surprised by this. I mean it really feels like this is just Reiterates what we've been watching. Play out over the last several years. Just just we're seeing the old legacy providers really take a hit on the content inside and I think a lot of that has to do with just the fact they've been hamstrung by Hold School advertising models and limitations on the type of content that they can produce and we saw netflix trump in their early on the power of the disruption That the Internet is provided in a lot of other companies have started to follow suit I I don't really. I'm not one that really focuses or cares much about what award awards shows say or what critics say when it comes to content But with that said I mean these types of awards just even these types of nominations regardless of whether they win or not these types of nominations certainly helped get this type of stuff on viewers radars. And I think that is probably one of the biggest benefits of all is that it is more more or less free publicity. I mean I say free. Obviously they're paying a lot of money to produce this stuff but it is. It is publicity that helps get a lot of this stuff on viewers radars as we enter after this phase of just more content than we ever have time to watch. It's nice to know what is what is Bubbling to the surface there as as the must see TV and in films and whatnot. And I think you know honestly it feels like we've talked about this golden age for for television television. It really feels like films have had a tough go of it in and I think part of the proof there is just. This constant need to reboot everything in in. These reboots are just so uncompetitive from so many different angles It's nice to see your net flexes and Disney's Hbo's taken these Creative Moon. MM shots so to speak and seeing some of them pay off absolutely and I think you're you're completely right particularly when it comes to the fact that you know we know that smaller networks whether it's FX AMC. Some of these other niche. But I guess from just from a content creation standpoint in a way they are niche because they're not producing a lot of original stuff but part of their pitch to show runners. Is We can give you a lot more oxygen in terms of promotion. Because the fact of the matter there is net flicks. They're going to promote their bigger hits and bigger budget items more but just the sheer number of original things. It's the Netflix is producing in a calendar. Year is in the hundreds and so as they continue to invest in things like stand up comedy. There's only so much promotion motion. They're going to give a new comedy special. No matter WHO's doing it they're going to say. Yeah Jason. Yeah you've got a new hour stand up special. That's we're GONNA give you about three days worth of promotion. It'll be on social social media and maybe a billboard a two and that's going to be it yeah and so it is this This really does afford them as you said this bonus opportunity to promote. Oh yeah the Irishman Yeah. It's a long film but apparently it's a great film Because it's getting all these award nomination I'm so torn on the Irish. I want to watch it so I know I'm not. I'm not going to have the patience to finish it and it's like you know it's going to be just an amalgamation of a lot of movies we've already seen with these guys he is and you're going to kind of know how it ends anyway. So do I need to bother really and then you get Scorsese at. They're just begging you not to watch it on your phone but it's four hours man. Yeah there's GonNa be some time spent watching this thing on my phone netflix is a very interesting situation right now. Because is it has such a headstart on all of these other streaming services that are coming to market in HBO included. I mean when you look at some of these numbers regarding Gordon content spend it's actually astounding thing I mean. NETFLIX IS GONNA spend fifteen billion dollars on content this year. You compare that with something like Disney Disney plus right. They're going to spend about a billion here in this first year. Now that'll continue to go up. His time goes on They're just getting started. But then you look at something like comcast peacock which is going to be the end. NBC Service. They're talking about spending two billion dollars of the first two years to grow that service and really always always recognized that service for more than anything is probably just the fact that it's going to have the office wants. The office leaves Netflix. Six But my point is is that a lot of these other services. Don't spend nearly as much on content that can be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on what your perspective is. I mean Netflix. Netflix is trying to build a service. That scratches niche for everybody and so they have this wide cross section of content that they're building at a cost a lot of money to do that. And if that's GONNA be their strategy they're are GONNA need to keep on doing that. That requires a lot of capital. And they're going to figure out ways to raise it. HBO Peacock Amazon Disney plus to a lesser extent. I mean they are focused a little bit more specific world and what they know where the content spend might not be as heavy but their catalogue is going to be more limited and that's that's by design So then it is just a matter of how these all come together in and how we as consumers are are going to pick and choose which services we ultimately want price. It's GonNa take take part of it but I mean people are GonNa pay up for what they want to see in in so you know again. I feel like Netflix. Having such a great head start. It's terrific from the consumer side but now from the investor side. You have to start asking yourself. How much more can they raise prices versus something like a Disney plus where it looks like? They have a lot of room to raise prices but they're also just getting started. You mentioned the number of sequels that we've seen I sort of the the reboots that we've seen and I agree with you from a creative standpoint. It's hard to get excited about that from a business standpoint when you look at the box office numbers for this year here and the fact that right now. The Lion King remake is number two at the box office and for anyone questioning Disney's he's movie strategy you. Can you can stop because Disney is on pace to do about ten billion dollars at the box office. Is this year. The biggest year they had was twenty sixteen. Just over seven and a half billion and I'm not even including the Fox properties include those that gets you closer to twelve billion but it's it's really phenomenal. What they've built in and good luck to whoever gets to succeed Bob Barker? Yeah Yeah. I mean they've got their work cut out for them but I tell it is amazing that even when Disney puts out something that you might not initially think you care all that much about then at some point or another you end up seeing it for one reason or another and you discover wow man. I really enjoyed that and I mean the most recent example for me was over Thanksgiving break lake. Were down at the river for the holiday and we keep that house. disconnected from the

"Very happy to have a David Mickelson if you don't recognize that name you will likely recognize the site that he created and runs it's called slopes slopes dot com and I think we all Oh David a great debt of gratitude thank you thank you for being here you're welcome thanks for having me for being on owner Rossen Kerry today's just Ross ended and our friend Spencer and Charles were here at Sei con twenty nine thousand nine you've been to either this conference before similar ones way back when the amazing meeting being used to go to I probably passed in the hallways and they had no idea that you were the one solving all of my online battles actually I used to go with a friend of mine who lived here in Vegas and we thought US kind of Bari Pie be more interesting to go to the other side and go to the UFO convention and the vicar convention what the true believer Oh you're talking my language well that's what I do with the other skeptical crowd rather than the Arthur's or what have you so maybe WanNa join us on a future investigation or something let's tell our audience a bit about slopes in case for some reason they don't know I don't know what working to hide under for the past twenty five years or how to have not heard of snow but you started in the year of the lion king that's how I see nineteen ninety-four IC- yet what got snow going what started this I wish I could claim I had the foresight twenty five years ago to recognize you know the Internet thing fake news going to be a big problem come the twenty first century so I'm going to get a head start on it but no Not really that visionary it was just kind of a hobby that got out of control I worked for a very large computer company so you're kind of hooked in the Internet before most people had heard of the Internet back in the old ninety ninety four that's the very early days people are on netscape navigator for in back in the the usenet newsgroup days and there were no blogs even at that point no search engines no youtube yeah yeah alter Vista Dog pile of the company that made Alta this over really is okay I'm letting people go back K. situate themselves were in nineteen ninety four the Big Bang theory episode whether the doing favorite nonexistent search engine if I'd been involved in newsgroups about urban legends Disney and when the first graphical browser came out from Wola SORTA started writing up little Disney related urban legends okay this is kind of fun because carry my co host her other podcasts is called hit Mickey's and she talks about the deep seedy underbelly of Disney and did very investigation of the rumors around Waltz head it turns out he actually was interested in cryogenics but he didn't have his head frozen or any part of him actually that was one of the first investigations we realtors going out to force lawn and actually photographing the burial site or at least the martyr they are for anyone who wasn't able to access the -Fornia or Glendale at least give them a vision of of his grave and kiddingly trying to round up people on the Internet Tawhid in Forest Lawn overnight off the spot exactly what was this is the deep kind of investigative digging that's nope isn't even before it snaps and so I talked about with you before you know it kind of like figuring out a way to get into club thirty three the big mystery because it wasn't only Internet I just sort of you know the the basketball court in the matter homer and all those sorts I have been in there all the the hidden supposedly hidden risque stuff in Disney movies that's really where snow started a house and then when I ran through all the Disney legends I could think of branched out into different categories and then my wife the time started chipping in intending it to be kind of like a Wikipedia for Urban Legend Yeah not with the wikki part of everyone editing of it just sort of this authoritative Encyclopedia Urban Legends that's why it was originally called the wheel the urban legends reference phages and urban reference or legend Urban Legends Reverend pages right earlier yeah that doesn't roll off the time that does not I'm going to work so hard not to go down the rabbit hole of wanting to talk about Disney civic stopped I worked for Disney to mention working for big companies and love that kind of history so we'll talk about it some other time other podcasts so quickly took a left turn because as we were just discussing this was way back before search engines even yacht who was hand compiled yet just in index directories of websites did you get on that index but notes all word of mouth really kind of quickly became this place where everybody emailed anything questionable they came across on the internet or even in the real world and so it was all dying children trying to collect the the largest number of business cards birthday cards at Christmas cards and lots of computer virus warnings many which were hoaxes and missing dialed appeals many of which were hoax is you know before they were kind of clearing houses for all that stuff right now that was and there was no wikipedia the time so so which came first kind of the website format or the name snow pts well I started using the name snowpacks way back in the pre webbed as okay or yeah once the origin of this term slopes is the name of a family of characters that appear throughout the works of William Faulkner I'll and that has absolutely nothing to do with anything other than just way back when I was familiar with falters work so I doc named my cats nope site had personalized plate that said snowpacks and so my college roommate's called me that and when I started posting on the old newsgroups on the Internet the Stott there's you know whatever twenty million David's out there who's going to remember David I need like uh-huh Dinette so using snow pts and it really just were doubt fortuitously now it's become a verb yeah it's kind of like is Amazon Gogol it's short it's catchy distinguishes us from competitors 'cause everybody else in our spaces fact something or something check or something and we're the ones who are not yet we did a similar thing at least with our podcast is called owner Rawson Kerry because there's no indication from the name itself what the podcast about so slopes itself at least has just become a household name so okay so it wasn't anything to do with snoops the character from the rescuers which is what what my crazy conspiracy believing cousin Catherine calls it she snoops we actually did once getting Anki irate email from someone who threatened to report us to the Faulkner Foundation or so really not realizing that there are a number of people the world who actually have the surname snow he invented it's not like we called ourselves Sherlock Holmes or something as soon as you settle with me those families then you can come after me that's funny it reminds me of I think goes Murray Gelman who named the quirk after a James Joyce Reference yeah three quirks for muster mark so he made that his new particle name anyway will you know what to step back even a little bit farther again let's say somebody at this point is still not familiar with slopes haven't been there what's the basic format so you come to snaps if you've heard an urban legend or someone shares a claim that could be true or false yes and they get to see synopsis telling them either it's true it's false it's mostly falls somewhere in between and then an explanation right yes about we're doing these days unfortunately as political that's what's consuming everyone in the era of fake news and Yeah and Post Truth and all of that as lawyer work is cut out for him yeah so you you know someone's forty you this screed about some company is funding you know genocide eight of gay people in some African country or just something that sounds really horrible are hard to believe or you know Nancy Pelosi is going to become vice president trump resigns or some vaccine question right and so then somebody just has to add on their online debate forum while the to do is go to another tab and just type in snoops and then that key phrase that company and they get a handy article they read it very quickly and then instead of them having to do a ton of re research and share it with their crazy cousin they just copy the link and say please go read this note article so early on how many of the articles were you writing was it all you are did you have writers from the beginning at the very beginning when it started it was just me road all the Disney stuff the first few categories as I said than my wife at the time Barbara started chipping in in writing but said we started this back in nineteen ninety four it wasn't until twenty years later Haute very recently relatively recently back to doing it on my own and one of hired a couple of contract writers and then as the twenty sixteen election proved to be the most contentious in US history roundup with more more writers or editors so maybe you can help me out is it true that the pope endorsed Donald Trump for president. it's not true yes not wanna Vatican City as yeah how how do you differentiate all of this language around fake news versus is hoax or parodies how do you kind of internally classify all these things well one is we we avoid the USA fake news really now just because it's been completely co opted practically meaningless us like urban legend used to be just a a synonym for false or anything that you neal's they don't lie leave just call it fake news and also news doesn't have to be fake to be Eh misleading like you can create a one hundred percent accurate article only tells one side of a story you know it's like imagine a criminal trial where the prosecution put on a case of just stop there and it went to the jury the lies by omission yeah it'd be highly misleading so fake doesn't cover it all so we're still kind of calling it junk news item apparently our president has moved onto corrupt news media yes we're not quite calling it that yet tell me a bit about your process first of all how does an idea become eligible force a bunch of people submitting forms online saying please is a settle this for me or is it something you take interest in now our topic selection methodology is we tackle whatever the most people are asking about her questioning at a given time we do that through a variety of metrics what people are emailing us what the searching for on our site what's trending on Google what people are posting on our facebook pages what's what's on the front page of read it kind of there's a whole lot of inputs that gets synthesized and we don't make any judgments about the stuff is too silly or CBS or unimportant rust cover you let the interest level Kinda dictate house exactly sometimes it's kind of distressing but people are interested in to the exclusion of things are actually more substantial or important subjects to a lot of criticism where people complain you were debunking obvious satire must be there's nothing obvious out there and if we're if we're writing about it it's a whole lot of

"Hey guys welcome back to reference was starting off with your phrase own mind and wouldn't you know it. I've got the proverb <hes> MHM even though you'd probably do it for this episode. I will bring this south. African proverb to life knowledge is like a lion it cannot be gently embraced. <hes> wow okay <hes> doesn't mean that just like a lion for you to be able to tame it you have to go all for it like religious which he knows into it and getting ready to greet he's done. Would I be wrong in saying. Maybe this is a change because you might have experience <music>. You're correct so he gets US next week's episode now. Let's get onto the show <music> <music> jumble friends and lovers woke him to another week of for your reference. You Got Your Harris K._t.. Not and this week we a diving into the twenty nine thousand nine version of Lion King. That's another remake fun. Harass red days straight off the cuff guys we did not get paid for this. John Favalora we will get into feelings but but I feel like he did quite well. You've got a lot of the juggernauts that have come back for this twenty nine thousand nine production namely Tim Rice Elton John Song Writers and also Hans Zimmer whose iconic in his own aspect as well according to the budget. It's not an Cabeza just suffer really dodgy Google search. It's telling me do you WANNA guess odd Reagan north of a hot wall way past one hundred million though oh well that means you're right in any sense two hundred sixty million United States dollars six right and on I._M._D._b.. M._D. Bay it's been just over a couple of weeks now and its debut it has brought in five hundred and forty three point six million million five hundred and forty three point six million wow so you've made a healthy profit and in just to specify because this is Disney and they might remake it again. We are talking about the July twenty nineteen version of the Lion King Welcome. It's a first time listening to foia reference. We would love to have you back after this episode. <hes> this is a family friendly movie we on but we do love Avow Daddy's and yeah. Let's get into it. <hes> obviously there will be spoilers but you know I really don't feel like that's necessary for this this particular episode yeah I don't think so as long as you've watched the regional lion king original of used it loosely bought you know yeah you should be fine and we also want to preface that we all learned people so we are aware that kimber the lion exists and it relied heavily <hes> that Disney relied heavily on that whether they want to admit it or not. I think we're supposed to say alleged so he didn't get in trouble. Hopefully Disney doesn't come out of his cryogenic hygenic chamber us but yes so allegedly so we're aware of that but we're not going to get any way in this episode of we continue to draw comparisons between that that we might try and have some inklings about the nineteen ninety-four version but yet where we're aware of it or we're just GONNA have to keep moving right so those are the stats <hes> let's get into first impressions not while I really enjoyed it well the opening scene alone alone just set the tone okay for some reason expected. David Autumn Roger starts out of a also just in the savannah exactly it fell so an potting -Ly Animal Planet He Kinda thing and and that's credit to the C._J.. But let's it really is. Let's dial it back a couple of decades sorry. Let's dial it back a couple of decades and talk about your first impressions about the one thousand nine hundred version particularly because you did grow up and you are Kenyan <hes> did that enhance the experience about linking uh-huh. Oh for sure it did lowers the foster movie I saw that Todd Swahili wadden lack of super box office ooh and how Simba you know even going beyond the names in having chronometer and singing it is just breathtaking. I thought wow how is this something that's out there that people talk about so healy and you know okay. Let's let's put it on the record. Is that actually how you pronounce it. Her Acuna Montana or is that the more easily pronounced Western version. I don't know why it's not my Tara data. It's it's time to bring those tease Matata but yeah it's my mytalk us. It's really just amazing breathtaking. It got me excited. <hes> pretty much brought me into the trajectory I am now. How is attack Boston because it interested in animation gum interested in technology I was I was enthralled by it and I wanted to Lan more what the PAL is that? And how can I get to do that and it just yeah it really did set a trend for me and it was just amazing and you know what if you just came here eh to listen to facts and a play by play of the movie you're in the wrong podcasts because sometimes we come from Ou- frame of reference if you'll pardon the the reference and sometimes he little anecdotes or you know what it meant to us and if you are interested Black Panther we do talk a lot about immuno the first inklings of a black here you've seen in meteor as well so if you guys are interested in that <hes> you can just get out also had a lot of things about racism even some stories about my aunties but we're not gonNA get into that today. Is there anything else you want to add about linking. Oh No it's it's just <hes> the original one was amazing and I don't know any anyone would want to add anything to it. Yes and we'll get into that in the comparisons. Let's dive into my fist impressions without giving you a specific pinpoint pinpoint of how old I am. I just want to point out that when lying came out in nineteen ninety four I was not at an age to go and watch it in the movies. <hes> Lion King was so impressionable to me <hes> but I actually consumed through the V._C._R.. which tapes young children? If you're younger awesome you don't know what cassette tapes or what they'll know a blue laser right yeah but it got to the point where me and my siblings would watch lion king so much that you would have to it would get static. You know when you watch things too much and it's not to get started because you keep your winding it and watching it over and over and that's kind of how it was for me. I didn't find this A._G.. Jarring but we'll come to the twenty nineteen vision but I just love animals so just to immerse myself off in that well. It was quite nice. Milan is actually my favorite Disney movie but lion king is definitely a close second. Would you say lion king you'll miss favourite. Nothing comes close to it. Even Molin who how make a man out of you well yeah it mental ought to us <hes> growing up and just a captured off the first impressions and we'll transition into the twenty nineteen version. I don't see what kids you'd get out of this. You know we have lived for a couple. Maybe a few decades so we've seen the transitioning of really manual will sort of technology into more streamlined digital technology right just in the case of like Seiji right the way it changed from like Two d animation animation and where it is now. I don't see what a five or six year old kid would enjoy out of seeing saying how realistic the animals are. I think it's more a nod that US as adults would have that we've come so far technologically right but as a kid if if they were to go and watch the two thousand nine hundred movie without context of the Nineteen Ninety four movie. I really don't see what they would get out of it because it just looks like scary animals he's like do you know when you had sky in the hyenas. It just look scary like I don't understand what <hes> I duNNo. I feel like we're in a wave now way their our kids movies that are being made but they're essentially for us <hes> to have those nostalgic sort of feels but let's let's dive into it. Let's let's talk about S._A._G.. I about twenty nine team. Oh it's breathtaking. You know <hes> like I said the studying scene it's pretty much shot by show Shaw from the one thousand nine four version which is breathtaking you feel this immense stodgy feeling which also because I think this would come later in our qualms section but if the for your reference households foundation is built upon upon qualms by is really good it was really well automated <hes> you could tell a lot of effort went into doing yeah and Kudos to the voice actors. They really really did an amazing job windows. I do agree and we actually didn't go through the cost but as as we as we go through each character will do that <hes>. I thought the C._J.. was quite outstanding. I think also because they weren't any humans in it. It didn't become jarring. 'cause the jungle book was a bit dodge. Yeah I'm not we love each on cyber and you've definitely improved. That's a nice example of improving a wave away you've been and where you are now but I really like to say gee. I really appreciate it. I I liked how real look to there. There were some images circulating. Someone actually <hes> really straighted this C._J.. To make it look more like the cartoon but I'm just just like at this point why in this generation of petitions for game of thrones just let it be and I guess as we continue to talk about this film. I just wanted to preface something because for your friends it's more about a discussion in a tantalizing tiff between rotate rotate Katie right but we try not to talk about reviews a lot but you know there's been quite a thunderstorm on twitter right and people alike. This is not my line king in my lion case from nine hundred ninety four. I don't know why they all sound cockney but that's that's how they are my imagination but it's also like if you're going to pay money which will obviously go to Disney and your purposely purposely going in there just to not like it then why bother right go and see the film and then if you don't like it that's fine but from a lot of from critic reviews and also just the general sort of twit of us. It seemed like people didn't even want to give it a chance I leading up to this. I was even say not when we're looking at our schedule Mike you know I I'm not sure if I even want to do lion king linelessness wait until we can watch it in the streaming service. You like no. Let's do it. Let's go and see it for ourselves right and I went and saw it and I got really emotional. I felt it and we will talk about the touching moments that we experience through the film. I think all of them saying is if you get your finger out of your office and you be open open to the experience you might actually enjoy it is awesome saying yeah you would enjoy it because you'd have the nineteen ninety four version to reference to and I think that's the whole experience for it because stick it out of context and he just looks like you know and this is something that I would agree with the complaints that are they're a fight because it's Kinda hard to portray emotions when it comes to such realistic looking any malls and awesome humans would like to kind of connect to these creatures and see how they'd react in certain scenario so you have foster dying and symbol inside aside and those one of the most scientists scenes that I've experienced in the ninety ninety four version and it was I think back then I cried uh-huh in this visuals like <hes> you didn't really hit home for me but I did and yes they are animals and you <music> as humans we have a tendency to project human <hes> sort of behaviors on animals which doesn't make sense but we do it because we're fallible creatures right and I felt the the sort of human related ability that you lose in the animals is gained right and is achieved through the soundtrack which we will get to the only other thing I want to pinpoint as a general sort of note is the nine hundred ninety four version was is exemplary as a narrative. You didn't really need to improve on it. What could.

"Dave say that I judge my lion. King movies is on one criteria and one criteria alone. What is the quality of the C._F._M.? Is You know what I'm saying you know saying please never use that expression again on this podcast they they are in full effect in the in the in the first version man even younger we knew what I was seeing with with <hes> with those is and they try to do that shot again. Just I did not feel it does not work in this movie but here's here's the thing here's the thing folks I mean I I can forgive the fact that they made this movie. I can forgive that hey we're gonNA try. We're GONNA try something really cutting edge technologically. We're going to try something net. There's never been attempted before we just like telling this story using photo realistic technology technology and making it look as real as possible and the only reason we're going to do it is just because we gotta make some more. We've gotTA feed the beast of the Disney cash machine. I can learn to accept all that like I can be okay with that. The thing that I am just is finding it so difficult to forgive is how these new Disney remix just completely murder the songs I mean the the new performances of the music is unforgivably bad it it is there are actors in this movie who cannot sing and I don't know why they were cast other than that. They were big names or maybe they're right for the other part the one thing that this movie should have copied from from the original ranking that it did not was having a different singer do the songs in the actor. I don't know why they didn't do that. Neither Simba in the original ranking sings like neither of the actors who play Simba sings the song. That's Zimba sings in the original thinking. There's a different seem like they're different performer doing the songs. I don't know why they didn't do that because some of the people in this cast cannot sing and the songs are just murdered they're just murdered and I think the beef prepared is like one of the best villain songs ever written yeah and it's well. It's honestly not even a song. It's like a speech. It's like a very rousing political rally speech. Basically it's not it's barely a song I mean you go from a deliciously performed song by Jeremy Irons in the original lying the king of gravity growling voices yeah and also has a long illustrious career on stage doing musicals with refinish Saul esque imagery injury going on with like the goosestepping hyenas and like how imaginative and terrifying that is to whatever the heck it. Is You WANNA call we got in this movie and I'm just like my heart breaks. I'm not I'm only mildly exaggerating because the lion king the that original score the Zimmer and all the Elton John All that stuff. I like war that CD out you know listening to that yeah. It went one of my first C._D.'s yeah it is I think to this day the best selling <hes> animated movie Soundtrack Trek of all time ten times platinum that that album went and I have such a special place in my heart for these songs and to see what was done to them in this movie is just nobody songs songs song think of the artists I will say by the way when it comes to be prepared to like if they wanted that to actually be a song it did sound like Chua for could have done it like you like he's he he even as he's reciting the like he's like guys should actually be singing right like I wanNA sing talking..

Okay so it's a rip-off Japanese cartoon Yeah Kimba Yeah Kimba Kimba the White Lion Kimba the white lion just he was like no. It's not it's not a curtain rip off. What are you talking about you? Watch the way has like the same rock you know and it was originally <hes> symbol the white lion and then they made yellow and then they called it the lion king and you know I mean like every Japanese person who saw the wet lanky was like hey. Is this Kimba nearly no. It isn't like Oh. I think it is. I remember Kimberly. whalen yellow Disney was like no it's not. We're not talking about it again. Fully original fuck the lion king whatever I like the first one okay so it when I was eight years old my mom had to take me my dad was living in England at the time to direct to video sequels and I feel like the second one didn't close eighty four. Oh `grats thanks very hyped up unlike returns a fire which made like a big cultural impact. I feel like no one has any memories of lying to Simba's tried. I know some people who are nostalgic for because the little kid is cute. It's the new kid and then there's lion king one and a half now I feel like more people killed in Stern Boomberg tomorrow and Puma movie that is lying king told solely from combust perspective. I like that it's supposed to be really good. Is it yeah I know people who say it's really good. It's like the one direct to video sequel found that air. That's supposed to be funny because on the cover with no Puga he he's big it was the bigger one yeah and he's struggling to try to make the fucking empowerment thing with Puma in this movie that they're fat shaming him and that's how he gets the courage to stand up because even though he's cowardly he hates bullies. The thing long I kept thinking about was like imagine the person who's like fuck honey. I'm GonNa Miss Dinner. I miss the next three years of dinner. I can't get the lighting right on this rock. You know like you watch that and you're like their individual people care hear about what they're doing and or some sure worked very hard. It looks like lions in a desert and stuff and like I can't believe where at that point where we can do this. You know it's very impressive what replicas light I need a machine to make me the fucking Jews I can squeeze it myself. Why do you need a machine to make you the fucking juice what if like Jeff Nathanson who wrote this film to a great job great job washing the lion king screenwriter catch me yeah what if he came in he was like Griffin look? I was having a hard time and like you know I made a couple of million dollars movie. Now I'm doing okay. Would you be like all right. Listen I copy and paste the screenplay and like I just want someone to give me reason to be like all right. Well whatever someone because my kid was sick kids better all right cool glad you made it. Donald Glover went on Jimmy Kimmel promote it wearing a full lion costume was kind of fun for me and he seemed a little embarrassed to talk about movie had one really good anecdote which they really does your son excited.

"Just like you know all that sort of shit which is so much fun Robert Gums doing it. He's killing Benson John. John Kani in this movie is doing very respectable Luther strange. It's it's it's it's. There's a lot more respect for the it just feels like they want to avoid any kind of stereotype yeah and I understand that it's the same thing that was scar. It's the same thing to do with Jaffar. The Hyenas to where they're all like air country gets a couple half jokes in Keegan Michael Key plays one of them and it's it's unclear what his bid is because they don't want him to actually be scary. These also not really funny. <hes> your countries playing the equivalent of Ed the one who always just laughed and now he's just the dumb one was then <hes> what's influence Cassamba yeah she plays the main one and it's like Whoopie Goldberg kind of amazing and this is where she sort of like half only half serious yeah. This is just she's just right and it's this weird like she's got this weird specific thing with Nala at the end of the movie. She's like I'm GonNa eat you. I've been waiting for this my whole life that just felt like them being like let's give the female voice characters more of an arc me have their wiki thing they all like all right so never forgiving is whatever and I said it to you who should have played Rafiki Dana Glover but I love glove you love on the glove as you said go fits and I always fully can't he does the like you got shot again. He's still alive. He's still alive. Look he lives in you any points up to the clouds and I go okay. At least this is going to be this sort of transcendent moments. You know of like like emotional sort of static truth. I can't wait to see how the cloud they pull it off because what they do. They don't put his face in the fucking cloud. No what are they put. They show you a cloud. It's cloud so you're saying I it's a cloud. It's hi it's stormy. The lightning when the lightning flashes looks like a little face for a second there oh what what owed griffin thinking back and he's realizing it was truly majestic Ben. No exaggeration aren't just sitting there infants decimal a millisecond list second long lightning flash in which you can see five percent of his five just a vague sense of maybe that's a cheekbone. Is this a prank. It felt like it and I just went. What the fuck are? They doing now at this point when I'm watching the movie I'm sitting next to Griffin. I'm just say I don't care and this is happening on my that boring to and Griffin suddenly feels like whatever the straw that broke the camel's back. Suddenly he won't tolerate this. He's like he's gesticulating. What is it always look at faces in the cloud but he's not remember what the fuck do why play why make a fucking Lion King movie if you're not as you said they like it's they fucking everyone parodies the father's face in the clouds joke where this is funny yeah? It's one of the most iconic visuals of less thirty years of film pretty the DAD's face in the clouds and match shot of Simba going remember they use handling memes all the time and they just are like pizza pull the real life a real lion's face wouldn't appear in the classic. I don't give a shit. That's actually great point enough a realistic success to storm and it was great and then saw Simba goes back to pride rock fuck up scarred hyenas eat them. I also I mean that's the problem with the original cartoon too. It's like the whole thing where he's like. Scars like pick your dark secret. Is You kill your father and it's like in front of is likely he was there during a stampede like how is even childish simple going to be like yeah. I'm responsible yeah. I should probably yeah I've never loved that and then people are always golden. Lion King is like Hamlet.

"Humor on this. What are you going to say? Come on or physicality then the lion king yes. I think this move depend just basically yeah. It was okay I think if this movie was executed at the level of the jungle book it would have had a real Rhonette being the highest grossing movie of All Time don't even if you're right and I also think if beyond say actually felt like she had any impact on this movie when she starts speaking which takes an hour and a half yeah we'll visit the things you've got ten playing Nala and I'm like have you seen the Lion King Adult Nala has to Eli and I gave them way too much credit as fucking role as she's just like simple comeback to pride rock and he's like no. It's more Kelly is that plays Sarabi right who does play Nala. Am I right or maybe it is more yelling Allah Woah Yeah. I always forget what who plays no. It's yeah no more Kelli Kelli. It's yeah someone else played surrounding. Okay sorry when they announced the beyond say was going to do. I thought there is zero chance they're hiring beyond say to do as little as Nala had to do in the original film I gave them way too much hanging around the wrong way. Their pitch to beyond say was like honestly the whole thing will take fucking two days like we'll do it in your car. It's fine yeah just be like Samba Hack and she was like Okay Samba what the heck and they were like great. Here's twenty Mil. I thought she was going to really hands on produce the soundtrack she did make this thing that she made a soundtrack. It's like it's an album albums.

I also can go down to my local Bodega and they put some shit in a blender and I drink it and it's it's a hundred times cheaper right. It's like the same quality yeah or I could learn how to do it. Perfectly make my own artisanal juices like I dunno hand animating the Lion King. If I really care about getting this thing raise is just you know it's like it's like Ben set. It's like because like if they had just re released the great movie The Lion King from Nineteen ninety-four in theaters. You probably would have made a lot of money for a re release. Probably they've done as an eleven and it made close to one hundred million dollars right and you know if they'd release it again. They probably would have got a little more juice a row home or Juicero out yeah extremely new movie right whatever a million over the line Queen David given the key to the city Robert Deniro <hes> Mayor Bill de Blasio. What are you doing here? Shaky David's hand fucking run the city until I used to know him. I did call his son night cheese. That's right so I used to cover. A city councilman for the General. Now is a bit that I was jealous that you had another podcast four years ago and who won uh-huh Griffith congratulations. Here's the kids you're shaking but the simple fact that they spent you know two hundred fifty million dollars making fucking faithful faithful read C._G._i.. Rendering of this movie means that they unfortunately will make billions by the end of this weekend they will have likely made close to half a billion dollars. It's already been in China for like ten days. It's made over doing whatever it's go to this weekend in America alone now is it going to be the most successful movie over me no no no and the two cornerstones of my argument for why I thought it could end up being the most successful movie argument. I want my argument where you're like lying king hit plus fiance the musical look at how well jungle really is dead right. It feels like they have this technology down and as I consistently put it out not even if you like tripled the amount of money these other things made it we're not close and I'm not going to engage in a hypothetical scenario but I think if this fails beyonce's impact on things overrated at at this point although I have tweeted that and gotten yelled at but her last couple of albums have not sold that well I think the thing is not quite the phenomenon it was David people can hear you really microbe. Literally just got shot in the face with a gun. You're in league with the care of a subway Beta plus all motherfucker fucker. He's crazy. He's very tall. I thought you were the number.

"I could feel my cell phone right now. You know like the way the light hits the thing you know this and that the fact that it's all one hundred percent C._G._i.. and that stuff is more impressive than the animal stuff the environmental stuff the water. What have you and you go? There's no the reason any of this needs to be replicated. I understand you can't get lions to do things like this and even if you want to babe style is really dangerous and it'd be hard to get the performance out of them whatever right and they don't want to do a dinosaur did which I kind of would have preferred dinosaur sort of where they shot live action backgrounds and just enemy of the characters into them okay <hes> because that movie then has to abide by the physics of what a real camera can do which when this movie is replicating certain famous shots the sweep shot where you're on league zoos back as you fly towards pride rock works animation because an animation animators are drawing thing and then they have certain technologies like Multi Plane Camera C._G._i.. Later for Lion King and stuff like that they can use to simulate a camera movement. Your brain is not rejecting it because you know there's not a real camera in the same kind of way in this movie when they have killed day Chanel sitting in a room as a visual consultant the given the D. in V._R.. Wearing this headset with to who like oculus rift controllers God placing his digital camera somewhere and picking his digital lens and all this whole thing that talked behind the scenes photos of this movie and it is ten guys sitting in office chairs with oculus rift controllers and and headsets and one guy's like the gaffer and they were like we digitally created away where someone can light a set and there's also an analog way to do it. You have a guy and he brings lights and he turns them on and it's an artistry looking photo real sea going on. You're like there's no way you could get a camera to do this in real life and it makes everything look more fake but this is the point. I want to make okay. I was really the proud I landed on this. Okay sitting there watching that board. I'm not emotionally engaged. I'm not hating it but I'm just like I. It's weird how much I don't feel anything Moheb near loaded fries where they that was one. There was really some tension and things like <hes> scar that used to be scary. I'm just like I don't feel any threat feeling dangerous fucked up how he looks design scars awful. He's just a skinny like just looks like a rag mangy looking. It looks like a methy lion so but he looks messy so oh it's so disappointing. I'll find a fund pitch for Ikea. Why spend this much time and energy for something you can so simply just do replicating things yeah you already just film replicating the way that a camera light would work right? That's so oh bad and then I said what is this movie. This movie is the cinematic equivalent. Yeah go ahead of the juicero machine the no the <hes> okay so if I can remember right it was the thing where they were like. Silicon Valley has cracks juicing juicing. We need technology to disrupt the juicing industry people you know how do you make juice. Usually we have to buy fresh fruit. Put it in a juicer. It's whisper barely makes any juice. What a pain in the ass not with the juicero machine where you put it on your kitchen counter you buy juicero packs? They slip them to you. You put a juicer a pack in in it. They're trying to do like the Knicks Bresso coffee right but for juicy..

"Win? Do I use it. What's the geometry of this attack any of that stuff right <hes> and when you watched nature documentaries and the animals sort of like look blankly twitching and you're sort of projecting onto them like what is that animal doing? What is it trying going to do? That's kind of fascinating when John wrote did the jungle book. I thought I like that movie a little more than you do. I think it's like a gentleman's six six point five right <hes> but I think he nails that element. I think you have one of each animal. I think generally those types of animals were more expressive and airs Panther Tiger Tiger sneak multiple wolves yeah but really one is sort of one meanwhile father her cubs mother father my father but also he seemed a lot more comfortable. Having animals do things that animals couldn't do in real life in that move that is true even though there aren't. There's isn't singing and dancing the animals like justice. There's a little singing I did. I'm just saying no dancing with the musical numbers but there is rhythmic moving yet. There is intentionally in their actions. I was saying this to you. Before we saw the movie we saw a movie together. Last night we do bears and monkeys apes whatever the chimpanzee are more expressive inhuman to begin with anyway so you got that advantage. You remember how how fucking well Sher Khan works in the jungle. He hammers the performance everyone like he works better yeah. It's it's not bad. I mean he's he's only really got this. He's scary yeah which helps because like tigers these are scary but is scar ever successfully scary scars the biggest problem with and this movie where pretty much everything is a problem. I think scars the biggest disaster in the entire now <hes> but <hes> like I think I think if if you're GonNa try and highlight what went wrong here I think scar is probably the best example and also probably the story of Disney's failure with these remakes. General Villain is the a scar in the villains and their whole thing where like we can't have them be as sort of like flamboyant as they were because that that kind of seems offensive now and it's like make another fucking movie yeah and then then. Why are we doing this? Have you seen Lion King. Recently scar is every word is like well. You know it's Jeremy. Irons is like in the river and remember that the character animation on scar shallow and gene pool every word is enunciated enunciated in this chair tells like yeah. I'll play them just sort of like. Is this kind of Moody Guy like who sort of like you know you know. I don't know it's like it's monotone UIL like he's not bad. I thought his it gives a good performance. Could I think good period performance <hes> but <hes> but anyway but back to the Lion King The jungle book this was the thing that kind of Oh but but like they have blue blue sitting <hes> eating honey with his hand making eye contact with the person he's talking to when he's talking to them like gesticulating with his paw person advantage that movie has that there is a person right right but I think the movie like actually allows the characters to behave like characters in this movie. I kept on being like what's the weird thing that's going on. There are a lot of weird things and then also just the other point that made to that you agreed with this at least in the jungle book. Everyone's a different kind of animal so you can like each. They have their own personalities. This one has like you know eight or nine Lyon characters. They all look like wines yeah right there are three hyenas. They all kind of look the same as all look the same. One of them has like a fucked up here a little yeah right I had to do a lot of <hes> dog scenes on the tech <hes> right because we have the the dog midnight and season one dog acting is very difficult and here a couple of reasons why who's are so fucking divas. They're divas. <hes> their writers are insane..

Check four this notion of the Live Action Disney films director certainly has blank check status and Fabra was an interesting one because I think despite the fact that he has had a run of successes his blank check also increases because of the increasing success of the marvel rebel cinematic universe chef and chef and the chefs universe the the M._c.. You and the we all stand legend. His name is Jeff. Casper tried this Cuban. Yeah you gotTa try to battle. Remember that famous line from chef. Is He Martin Scorsese movie.

WHO's involved great yeah yeah I think it's fair so coming off the lion king coming off all the marvel movies he goes? I just feel like we're getting warmed up right. We just crack this technology. I wanted to get to the next level. It's the prompt is the problem and they announce it as a new lion king and everyone goes. Oh my God they're making a live action lion king which are what are you talking about. It took them three years to figure got a way to refer to it for three years. They kept on like Robert egger would do interviews and be like I don't know because it's not live action but it doesn't really look like an animated movie and they finally like three weeks ago. We're like going on talk shows and tell everyone it's photo real photo photo realistic. You know like that and that's the pitch the pitch was what if we did the lion king and tried as much as possible to make it look like a nature documentary. Yes we've animals will just look like what those animals look and we will try to hold them to the actual. Physical limitations animals can a moat fully and move around so here's some things that lines can do walk run. Yes that's a eat sleep. Yeah like like crowd on crowd. They were very allay. Survival based creatures right yeah a lot of emotion that goes into their decision. It's their needs hack hunters right. They live in prides and there's this thing that's interesting about watching animals behaviorally Scher where because they aren't rash they're not run by emotions.

"Fuck my weirdly like a lot but I don't like the movie Dr. I'd like this. I like it's really sad black cauldron. If they announce a live action remake of the Black Cauldron all bets are then we know Disney's truly like I don't know we'll see when that they look just kind of hide. Even more than Song of the south like that wouldn't has to be on Disney though right. I'm Kinda pumped for that. I'm blue ran stuff. Yeah I remember when they released it from the Disney Vault. I thought it was a new movie because it was never included in like Disney. Legacy stuff was so deep on Disney legacy stuff I was like how did I never hear this movie yet. Run any of the posters that were like the history of anyway go right right well. I really just knew it as like Disney's dark mistake and then after by cauldron. You've got great mouse detective. They could do that mice yeah. I don't know company Disney. Just shut down the mouse card movie yeah at Fox Detective Yeah. I mean look the photo real things on the case. The Little Mermaid is in the works Beuningen. The beasts allowed in Lion King. Done Pocahontas probably never going to happen hunchback doing that. No they keep on trying to do it for the stage. It has played in Germany. It has played in Europe. They've done on out of town tryouts James Levine so the net James Levine James Pine yeah the nextwave for them would be hunchback Hercules Tarzan that would be them being like. I don't know those ones are a really tricky to pull off. Hey We got a pizza pie. Ladies and gentlemen <hes> Hercules. I think is kind of on adaptable because it's so specific in its tone and it being a weird comedy that feels so of its time that's a very nineties comedy. It is and Donovan's in the nineties performer ever Hercules is kind of the Proto Shrek. I feel like people don't talk about that. Don't get a truck used to say yeah. Don't gain his little Dana veto sidekick and Hercules is the movie. That's like yeah but we're making fun of Disney. Movies like Hercules has all the jokes about like the madness and the calling out how much merchandise there is if clements in Moscow we can talk Hercules. I got an interesting style musical style. Here's something radical I will look for this blank cheque podcast. We what are we doing. We're doing this is important. Okay go ahead. We said this episode was going to be short but we're connoisseurs context. Go ahead go ahead. We promise we'll be fifteen minutes long. <hes> <hes> what I was gonna say is when Hercules came out. I said that is tied for my number one favorite movie of all time that's interesting old you've been laying yeah so it Hercules. You're like they did it. They finally campus something. It doesn't surpass toy story but it's equal to toy story and toy Sir I still think is one of the greatest movies ever made. It and I don't even like Hercules anymore. I have twice in the last five years. TRIGLAV show back to and been like yeah. I thought it was so fucking funny. I thought it was a laugh riot loved the songs was all about it. That was my favorite of the Disney Renaissance Anyway. Burn off. Yeah I mean this is the problem. Though these ones like our Hercules to recent live action movies that's sure Tarzan a recent live action move hit Yeah America loved it right and the songs aren't as sort of legendary as they are with like eating the beast and Aladdin and Lion King and such. Maybe they'll remake remake bolt can't from that a remarkable a photo real bolt John Travolta but then yeah then there's this other weird thing where now there's this rumor going around that they wanna do fucking Atlantis great sounds good that Lebron denied shoot it down or whatever what he denied was that he was doing it which I'm sure and then like all relieving doubled down on the story we trust our sources. I guarantee is on. Everyone's fucking wishlist. Apparently the thing they're into is that Disney wants to make Tom Holland vehicle and they were like Tom. Holland would be good for the guy in Atlanta's. Tom Honed his attached to everything..

"Theme parks where like living in cars <hes> because they couldn't afford to live on the fulltime salary <hes> there was like a woman who died of a heat stroke in her car who had worked as a janitor at at Disneyworld for like ten years linking episode terrible stuff and this Summer Disney attendance is down at both parks way down from the usual usual summer summer standards when they expected that they would be breaking attendance records because of Star Wars and what happened is. I believe this is not my theory alone but I truly think this thing. They spent so much time hyping up. How Bat Shit crowded? It was the people you know what I'll take that summer off. They scared everyone off and that coupled with the fact that they were like. Only one of the two rides is going to be open. The other one opens in six months. I think people like myself. We're like I'm not getting on a fucking play until the number which I should be someone who's going to be there. fucking opening week <hes> they had done this once before they like made these places like Disney. We're here to talk the lion king which turned into diesel or to park lower now he knows the Disney head really yeah have her on the pod. She's muscular clemens which we've been talking about more and more be kind of cool to do because it's like the rise. He was just talking about it in a recent episode the Disney Oh sure other Disney park they did this. They over hyped that then people say the wings it was they tried to make their own discoveries owned like kid like chucky cheese style and they over hyped how how popular they were going to be and the attendance was so fucking low and Disney quest was them trying to do a more like high tech interactive arcade and the same thing happened. They've done this before but they were previously always Eisner. Mistakes and Eiger hasn't made this mistake before but they we're spending so much time announcing to the press how they were going to handle crowds and being like we got this figured out that even someone like me was like I'm not touching it for six months. <hes> what's your favorite Disney movie. It's a good question. I don't know offhand but let's let's just start. The conversation started. I'll find out baller. <hes> here's an interesting thing it feels more and more now like the Disney live action remakes that work at the level that they want these movies to work.

"<music> acting to the aggregate reviews with lack with most people seem to be saying that after the movie they're like they're like it looks amazing but I've seen the first one and it was the same respond the seems to be that it lacks the emotional emotional resonance and Catharsis the first. This is the kind of thing that I feel like would have been better served as a viral video some do some group of like really talented artists artists like computer artists got lottery time and they were like you know it'd be cool if we like shot for shot remade the the lion king trailer and we put it up on Youtube and then it gets it gets two hundred earn fifty million but it's not the whole movie or rather if Disney didn't have an interesting concept for redoing remaking the lion king sure because if you look at Don actually sent me some behind the scenes stuff about the process they went into making the movie and Jon Favreau using using V._R.. <hes> in essentially directing in a virtual reality space and how it sounds really really cool so they didn't have a great live action concept for or realistic concept for Lion King if Disney came forward Lord and said exactly what you're saying like we're going to give John Fabric of this technology and we're gonNA show him remaking the lion king trailer and we're GonNa do it. We're going to show him how he did. It did it with this technology. That would have been really cool. I think that would have blown everyone's mind billion the billionaires but it would have been great promotion for Disney and then from there for their live action movies going forward. I think I think what's interesting for me and maybe it's. It's probably different people but when the first trailer came out a lot of people in my social media circles were going Holy Shit this looks amazing the elite Mary uneaten hysterical. Oh my gosh this looks amazing and I was like no. This looks just it's just the lion king. Just remember these songs and so it's I just expected that this would precede the movie. You've you've come out and people say that they love it. Because it's the lion king and most people would just will eat the same Brownie four times in a row..

"Into the weekend you can find new episodes on apple spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. I'm sean fantasy and I haven't managed Ivan's and this is the big picture a conversation show about the circle of life. We are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film if.

"lion king" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast

"She's like retaining her dignity through this but this is an but it's like yeah you could use such because we see knowledge mom for one line. She's cleaning her child exactly looking your child asked that's literally always have her yeah. That would of been good for everyone to because it's because you are sort of like chatted scar. Pull this off you so out well so outnumbered right that brings me to some <hes> some science facts have so yes. We talked to Katie Golden. She is the host of creature feature podcasts right here on the network <hes> and she knows a lot about animals and she told us a thing or two about how blind behavior actually works in nature versus how it's depicted in the lion king so she's female lions make up the core for pride which we see in the movie <hes> males come and go prides are often thought to only contain one male and like a Harem females but that's not always totally accurate. Only sowo lion prides contain a single male adult most other subspecies of lions have pride in which they're up to four males typically brothers and typically one dominant male is allowed to mate <hes> with several row females and then they all produce cubs so in the Lion King Nala in Simba would be related because Moss would be both of their dad's yet because we see only one we seem a Fossa and then we see scar who we assume isn't he's an insult. He is getting sucked. Yes major in-cell like he lives in a basement right literally yeah all the other adult. Lions are females talking some bosses. It's fucking Oh.
