They're just they're just really well done. I don't know like i know john. Cusack did some puppeteer were core the movie but he can't have been like that main puppeteer for all the My guess would be that they had had to have some you know a professional Puppet puppeteer dealing doing that stuff. All came out so play almost like uncanny valley love literally and especially to like the ryan. I guess like the the more expressive like movements. That like to see a team in do you know. Look like a s- passing out there like you know. Uncontrolled moving around like wildly.

Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga
"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

Malkovich is one of my favorite movies. I remember I wash that college in. Clemson means to have like a dollar theater where we would get movies like in that phase between like when they are no longer in the theater but not yet released on at the time Dvd or video. And so you'd get these movies so we just my friend. I want rated night went and washes movie being John Malkovich and it was fucked up and it was weird and I fell in love with it. This movie was I thought. It was pretty insane. It is uncomfortable like this movie. It brings you in like you almost feel like you're sitting there like with the characters and it so on co there's so many cringe worthy moments. But it's I don't know this but one I loved about it though is that I just felt in the movie. I felt like I was a part of it. Yeah it's confusing and Michael's right like you don't really know what's going on. And then at the and then it ties up at the very end and there is a twist. 'cause you have some stuff happening where it's like? This is completely unrelated to what's going on with the to the couple and meeting Jesse parents in like there's other stuff happening. What the Hell is like? Why are these things in this movie but the last twenty minutes in it does come together and there is like a? There's a twist and I liked the twist and so Yeah definitely Tupperware for me. So I'm going to. I'll just I'll give it a taste that I love being John Malkovich.

Kinda like just talking on this kind of like road trip to and from like his parent's house and I get lost in the conversation. There's a moment when they bring up on a book called a supposedly fun thing..
Space Force Review: Steve Carell Charms in Netflix Comedy Series
"As the brand new streaming series space forces about to blast off that's right this star Steve Carell and it's created by Carell and Greg Daniels who is best known for doing the office the two of them of course work together and that for many many years big popular show this one is a Netflix series and like you said it's taking off this Friday it's about the creation of the space force which is a real thing and we've got that actually happening right now and it's a more of a workplace comedy from the general's point of view has been put in charge of it that being corral potus once complete space dominance to that end the president is creating a new bridge space force which mark will run what overall the story is interesting I'm curious to see where they're trying to go with it because that one hand they're trying to make a kind of this absurdity but on the other hand there really trying to make this destroyer of out this general who finally gets his chance to run something and and he's handed something that he really doesn't want to do it he's gonna find a way to make it work hi it has had some some very funny moments especially because of the acting I really want to see where they go with season two because they could this could blossom like the office but it could also please allow ten you know crashed upon landing yeah you know it's got that deadpan humor the kind of thing that Steve Carell is able to do very very dead pan humor how does that how's that gonna hold up episode after episode well I think that's the part that works that's I think what made the office work so well and and he's he's up against like John Malkovich's his foil it and and that that really was the two of them have great chemistry I was amazed scene after scene they trot out in every scene another new character actors some of television's best character actors on this so that makes it look pretty interesting all right how many how many retro rockets do we give space force I'm going to give it three and a half retro rockets but they're firing on all cylinders and that's good because I I I think this has a lot of potential which is kind of still has to fight to find its
Dancing to the Cup
"A trainer partying like it's nineteen ninety one eight bolt she's got a two and a half lake lead dawn the destroyer next toward the inside what over with Mark Holiday from blue devils been a client of mine for years and we just try to make a game plan where we figured we'd cut it back and trying to make her a champion in the sprint division just seemed like chasing midnight these you might be a tough ordeal for her we had always Kinda were skeptical about how far she wanted to go even though she had won the Royal Delta ongoing amount sixteenth earl the year before last when she was second in the gopher one going mile just seemed like a good plan to just regroup she got a little light after the midnight race to wait for the Ballerina and try to win that game one which turned out great and then it's actually not ten weeks I was wrestling with that but I decided to go ahead and run the gallant bloom on September twenty second I got the I put she also won so now I got the two races back since the Phipps and I'm sitting ready to go five and a half weeks into the British top actually speaking of midnight zoo you know we mentioned in our open that your family has a history of running a really good horse against a potential legend for speaking about your grandfather Pancho Martin who had oh really good three year old named Sham back nineteen seventy-three but that was not the right year to have a really good three-year-old how much did that enter your mind when you decided to shorten up come down instead of knocking heads with midnight bees again I never really think about things in the past I mean I know my grandfather was a great trainer and that was a great horse and he ran against probably one of the greatest sources that ever lived but I just kind of try to do my own thing just worry about my horse and we're just trying to make the best game plan to give her a chance of success and to win a grade one and we just thought that Mitt I tease you and a late and some of the older fillies like a really strong division not that the sprint division having to run against co Pepsi the test and some other great vilis it's not it's not going to be easy but we just all got together and we just talked about cutting her back you know she had been brilliant in the distaff going seventy eight just started give us a chance to make regret one winter which has been always the goal 'cause we always believed in our hearts that she had that kind of brilliant ability in that kind of talent and they just that's just the way just turned out for us the time you know we were we were always debating you know what her best distances and this race was great and up to a mile it seemed like up to a one turn would be her game really oh by the way your grandfather portrayed as something of a foolish villain in the movie secretariat with Diane Lane and John Malkovich I know 'cause I was there for some of the filming of the scenes it didn't mention in the movie that he led the trainer standings in New York for ten straight years and entered the hall of fame in Nineteen eighty-one what did you think of his portrayal by Nestor Serrano I thought it was an interesting movie to say the least I brought him to see it and obviously he wasn't too pleased wasn't an accurate portrayal anybody that knows my grandfather knows that he was a gentleman and a lot of those things never happened with him screaming anybody I think he said he met Mrs Tweedy used to call her by her maiden name the day of the Derby she said hi Mr Martin can I say hi to sham and wish you luck inch and he took her over to t- his horse and exchange pleasantries and they wished each other luck and that was about the extent of his interaction with petty Chinnery so he thought it was quite amusing but like I explained to him it's Disney and somebody has to be the villain and they chose you and he said to me you know he was about eighty six years old and he said is there anything I can do I said well if you still have about twenty unless you could sue Disney but other than that just sit back and enjoy the movie so I don't think he really enjoyed the movie too much but it is what it is he had a great horse and if it wasn't for secretary how people theorize you know he broke the record in defeat and the Derby and preakness and maybe could be the triple crown winner he got hurt chasing him in the Belmont and then he still was syndicated for two and a half million in dollars which wasn't too shabby back in nineteen seventy three was a great horse in a great story and you know it's like having you know going up against Michael Jordan and a championship game and scoring eighty and Jordan's going one hundred and just coming up a little short trainer Carlos Martin joining us here on in the gate will send out come dancing in the Breeders Cup Filly Mayor Sprint you obviously come from a family of six zestful trainers including your Dad Jose who trained groovy I mean this is a business built on pedigrees so because of that I would think clients would have come flocking so you what made it takes so long for you to get back to this top level of competition I'm not sure I think we had a little rough patch with Mr Laser was my main client and backwards my dad got sick in two thousand six I had the the cancer Starting two thousand and two and then I unfortunately lost him in two thousand six we always had a close working relationship with Mr Lewis on and I kinda got comfortable in the state of being kind of a private trainer for him until he passed away about eight years ago and you know people sometimes they see you with one outfit and you know there was a lot if I think maybe just thought that was just him and me I was beholden to him and a lot of ways you know he was like a mentor to me with my father my grandfather of course and I think that kind of turns people off you know I had kind of a private job with him until he passed in two thousand eleven pretty much you know so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it I know when when he passed away it was quite an awakening to be a public trainer again and start almost from scratch about seven years ago and I'm so grateful that Mark Blue Devil and a couple of other clients like Matt Scherer on Mr and Mrs Collins a really good team now some really great people that have passion for the sport and really take the Horse I they're kind of the owners I have now say a little bit of a throwback because they really art patient with me as far as they want the best for the horse and I know there's a lot of pressure to do things right now especially when you spend a lot of money for but I'm very fortunate and blessed able to get back on our feet we went down from forty horses when Mr Lizard passed away in two thousand eleven to probably about five horses so we've called our way back and you know about the opportunity to win it Breeders Cup would be really really sensational way to finish the year and oblique grew almost to two million earnings for this year with a relatively small stable of twenty five sources I think he's a good accomplishment so I'm happy where I'm

"Puppeteer? He's not rushing. Guys, come in and help them out. And it's it's it's a really fun ride. It's an aspiring perfect. We haven't seen great puppeteer since he's been to John Malkovich. What was the being John? Yeah. Do you? Remember that movie? I don't need to see it. Maybe later today. Puppeteers arnav fantastic been sleeping on puppets puppeteers in this in. Puppeteers getting made over a queer eye, right? And what what is it about? What is it about this character this puppeteer that really is just tremendous needs to be made over? So he's just he's just an average guy who essentially just needs to be made over his mom, his dad and his potential girlfriend. And. Yes. Hand what are all about? Okay. Let me ask you this. The queer eye team is that are you guys playing the actual queer eye guys with their names and everything or are you just a different variety. Yes. So there are five guys the five guys from the fan five here, and they each have their own songs dedicated to them. Their process and their role is the fan five and how they work with sand. Make him over and making bestself. So great. It's very pithy. It's very punchy. But also like extremely positive at the end of the day. Absolutely. This idea was was yours you birth. The idea it was actually Evans. Evan was working at the Kennedy Center with second city over the summer, and he spent time writing the script devising story, and he had all of the lyrics set and brought me on to help shape the music of it. And so we spent a lot of time really discussing the map of how do we wanna tell us as a true musical? But also give each of these characters voice through a certain style of music. How can we transform that throughout the show to make you feel like it's a true musical? Not just like, I'm all of a sudden gonna sitting about feelings like Rogers and Hammerstein did that fifty years ago. You have to tell any story now. So does each character have their own style of music genre. Chasse literally killed it. When developing a musical personality for every person and their songs individually. Just it's it's incredible. Everybody has to come and see fun. You write the music. Wow. Nyongo there's club bangers. Yeah. Drag music. Hits the gambit of everything you would hope for love it. People people don't realize these downing level of creativity in the theater community in Chicago. And and how how diverse and vibrant, it is shows shows like queer either musical is just one just recently went to see the book of Merman. Mike, mike. So. Brilliant and whole areas and all original music. So how'd you written music before for musicals before sort of? Yeah, it's been a really big year for me. I actually just had my like serious musical read at the Chicago musical theater festival. I wrote folk musical with Laura Stratford called the bone harp. But I've been wanting to write musicals for about five years now. And so it all came to fruition I had both drama and comedy happening. Within about a month of each other. Smartest wants to say is this the follow up from bone harp. I'm not gonna do it. I refuse to do it. So the jury will disregard it. Okay. So we we should let people know, by the way. It opened March fourteenth. It's running out to the thirtieth. And then it pauses you come back on April eleventh and run to the twenty seventh doesn't give people a lot of opportunities you need to get off their butts. Yeah. Tickets you can go to playground. Feeder dot com. And if you wanna go. There's there's some mazing things some great shows that are always happening at playground. But so I would recommend people just go to playgrounds theater dot com. But if you want to go specifically to this playground theater dot com slash team slash queer eye musical parody. And you can always you can also check them out on Facebook at queer eye musical. You're you're on Instagram aquarium musical and right now on Instagram. Musical parody pretty much anyway everywhere. Yeah. Fun. So so what was the challenge for you guys in? In making making. I think finding a way to it's such a great show and interesting show, but not just copying the TV show making it something unique something important. And I think we really found that balance where everyone is is doing these characters that everybody loves and enjoys watching, but it's finding their own voice through it. And not just not just being a TV show. Right, right. I only know it watching it off in the distance. My wife was watching. But I remember things that they talked about on how to shave properly. Teaching proper. So there's. There's a lot that can go wrong with a straight, man. How did you narrow it down? My wife. My wife Testa statement. I don't know if I could. My composure time. Why married her? Honestly, just just Evans script for this is so good. And and he he wrote the book for it. His his lyrics are just absolutely to the point on exactly the work. That's going to get done. You know, exactly what you're getting into from the beginning. All the way to the end nothing really like there. There are some surprises. But nothing like directly throws you for a loop that it's just such an airtight script. And because this is our workshop production where we're every day trying really hard to make sure that we everything lands. And if it's not landing we work on the cast is so fantastic. And all of them are trained improvisers. This is not one of those plays. Sometimes in long runs, a cast has updates and down this this seems like something first of all it seems like so much fun that you're not gonna have a down day. But you gotta be on it. It.

But guardians is the only one yet. So far to crack my general movies top twenty list because it's freaking amazing. It is. It's a whole new world. Jerry. Can't whole new. Don't you close your eyes? I don't want. Chris me, new fantast pawn of you. Star lower. It doesn't get better than Chelsea. We've talked about a billion times before we talk about it heavily in the top ten marvel movies. It is not rococco movie. It is a entire universe. He's number two is my favorite movie of all time in the creates a in the marvel cinematic universe Star Wars level universe. Does it ever with amazing comedy and acting and Jarama and heart and everything involved? It's beat it spoilers again. Like, it's my number one marvel cinematic universe movie, and it was also my number one marvel cinematic universe turns out, but mine was number two. Chris was number one. Correct. Doesn't matter. Go back watch all of them. I've I've literally went to work in my normal day to day job and told people watch these movies like it. It doesn't matter. How you feel about them or how you feel about like any type of superhero movie? Watch these movies, kill it'll change your mind. Yes. Jerry, number five, Forrest Gump. I knew that was going to be on your list. New really? Yes. I was I had it on my honorable mentions. And I thought Jerry can put this on. Yeah. Absolutely. I didn't put it online. It's great movie though. I don't know how many times I've watched it. I literally can't tell you the amount of times I've seen this movie. I think everybody's seen that movie billion times. Correct. And there's a reason for that Chris because it's one of the best movies ever made very quotable. It's it's one of the most quotable movies. It's one of the most reenacted movies. Yeah. It's one of the most best like the best acted movies of all time. And it's really really grabbed hold of pop culture. So. Yeah. So I met Lieutenant Dan, right? Like the dude that played Lieutenant you met Gary Sinise. Yeah. He was in Iraq with the Gary Sinise band, or it was the what they call it. You know, he's on at Disney Ryan Lieutenant Dan band.

"Scenes played out either predictably or perfunctory. So those weren't that much fun either. I guess I wanted this movie to be even nuttier than it was and it didn't deliver. That's completely fair. I mean, we should be clear if it isn't already Gilroy knows these names ridiculous. I mean, I think what you're saying. Is that it's got half a foot into Cam? Yeah. Maybe and I it's hard to imagine how this would have been more ridiculous. But I think you're right that even bracing it further. I mean, that's what something like a bucket of blood does. And maybe that's the distinction between my enjoyment of them. There's something about this movie that seems to still think that it's saying something really smart, even as it also knows. It's being completely ludicrous and obvious. Yeah. And those two things are hard to hold together at the same time. Maybe that's the balancing act that is difficult here that isn't entirely pulled off. I think you're entirely right about the horror. That's when I kinda came to life is is like, okay, this notion that art self is going to take vengeance on those who would exploited it and not entirely original. But still interesting kind of thrilling to see how that works out. But man, these deaths are they drag on when you see what's happening. They're not they're weird. But not particularly inventive. I'll give you one. That shows. It could have been a motif that had been followed through. I think I know where you're going is probably the one exception for me. Yeah. Where we won't say who. But a character imitates the posture of figure in a painting just before she is killed, and it was really creepy because we make the visual connection. It's Jess what's about to happen. It also suggests this sense of possession. That it's the victim is being possessed in a way, even though it's not that direct. But that really only happens once and the other killings are fairly routine or un-imaginative. So I think that let me down as well. It was dive into this horror that wasn't all that. Well executed. No, I agree. And I think we are talking about the same one. And we won't get into the details of it in the exact character. But it's a moment where this particular character is seem to be completely ignoring some art that is behind her. Are we talking about the same one here? And she knows okay. You're talking about a different one. Now, I wanna know which character. How about we move this to a little spoiler? Okay. On people's. I wanna talk about more to in spoiler. The one death scene. I really liked involved a character. Who is ignoring some art that is right behind her and is filling up the frame for us to see. And then kind of enters a portal into another dimension. And at that moment. She now cares about the art because it's been now transported to a setting. That is more pristine. It's a gallery. It all of a sudden makes this art seem valuable at least, that's the way I read it. And then what we do get is a moment. Where literally the art consumes the consumer the person who commodified the art and that is a savage bit of wit. That's also really visually fun. And that's that's the only sequence really as far as the death scenes go that really like there's one that you see coming mile away. And actually from the moment that piece of art is introduced you're waiting for something to go wrong with it. But then when it plays out the way it does. It's exactly what you expected it. I don't do anything intriguing with it. And this is this is the sphere. And I bring that up just to make sure because the spheres also used in the aftermath of that is to repeat a joke. That's used at least three times in the film, which is a common joke when it comes to art world spoofs. That's someone mistake. Something mundane or in this case horrible for art, and they ignore their ignoring the aftermath of this death. There's just, you know, the most excruciating scene in the film is probably when Malkovich artist is walking across his studio and the establishing shot of the room we see their three trash bags in the middle..

"Always taught as a young boy that was just got to work hard work as hard as you can put in extra time and worry about what you got on your plate at that time. And that's what I've tried to do. I mean, he played the best game. He has all year. And so proud of him what he's accomplished come back from his ACL. And he just bought it out grinded out like everyone else. It's a football feeding frenzy after hours with Amy Lawrence quite a year for Julian Edelman from returning after a knee injury to missing the first four games of the year with the PD suspension to Super Bowl MVP. I mean, it's not quite Nick foles like, but it's right up there with. It's after hours with AB Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Bob soci- and Scott Zolak on the patriots radio network, Kevin Harlan, the voice of the Super Bowl in Westwood One. And then finally, Jim Nance and Tony Romo and Bravo. To them Bravo to the NFL on CBS. I thought it was a fantastic broadcast. And even though the score. Certainly the reason that you would remain engaged. It was still tied at three midway through the fourth quarter. I believe that the broadcast itself was entertaining enough. Now, I don't normally spend a lot of time. Tune in to what the guys or gals are saying depending on what I'm watching because I'm typically taking notes especially when it comes to a big game. But I really enjoy Nance and Romo NASA's the consummate professional. I could listen to him read a phone book, his his inflections than the sensitivity in his voice. It's perfect for the occasion Romo is completely comfortable and happy and feels no pressure at least that's how it sounds. And so good for him. And the fact that he was number two in terms of Twitter trends on AFC championship weekend. And that continued all the way through this two week March to the Super Bowl where people are really excited about what Tony Romo would bring to the table here to sit down with with Tom Brady. And which Brady noted, hey, I saw the broadcast. You call though, you made those. I mean, he he to me was was a great addition to the CBS Super Bowl team. What else will you remember who or what are your Super Bowl standouts? It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio Julian Edelman named MVP Tom Brady praising him and saying this was the best game that he played. Now, he has moved up to number two all time in postseason receptions, and it was pretty fascinating to see the social media conversation about whether or not Julian Edelman a hall of Famer being obviously has multiple rings. And the postseason numbers are off the charts. So who knows I wouldn't think body of work would be hall of fame, but his career is not over and that blame counts for a lot. We know that to be sure. I loved the Peyton Manning. John malkovich. Montage at the beginning. So truth be told I was doing some pre-game stuff. So I wasn't sure along the game would go. I thought okay, I'm gonna get my bag already going to get my dinner ready. I'm gonna make sure I can just change clothes and get in the car and go the game runs long. So I didn't I was listening to the radio in the pre game and didn't see the Peyton Manning John Malkovich or went back to the TV. Right in time for America, the beautiful and then Gladys Knight with the national anthem, but a family member texted me and said did you see the Peyton Manning opened? And I said, no. And he said, we'll make sure you go back and watch it. And so I definitely did Peyton and Malkovich. Together. You wanna talk about an odd couple, but it worked at your Super Bowl. Fifty three open. What do you think? Gladiators? Exactly, it's a metaphor. Listen, we brought you on as a consultant because we've merger football expertise. Didn't it? I mean, there's a Super Bowl champion and one of the great excuse me. Two times report champion. Superbowl champion. The same. Ring Brady's one five. I don't get my mail at the Super Bowl like Brady does too proud of it. So you're saying. Okay. That that was literally my reaction when I was watching it. So I went back and watch it before the game can't, and I was howling. Because he's so the way that he's portrayed himself in these funny. Remember when drew Brees passed him for most passing yards and his whole congratulations was what? It was about. Hey, I'm not going to do. This again congratulate you on the touchdown record to he. He plays it up. Really? Well. And so that part was great it really funny. But then John Malkovich owned it inside the Coliseum, and I got chills watching Malkovich spin around with the phone and talk about how it's patriots. And rams. That's all you need to know info. Yeah. That was really good. I'm glad I went back and watched it Gladys. Knight was phenomenal. She was classy. She was elegant. And of course, she's got the pipes and our air force Thunderbirds. They were immaculate their attention to detail, of course. But also the timing was perfection. And and I was really rooting for them after we caught up with a couple of members of the team on radio row other who and what that I'll remember from Super Bowl fifty three the Anthony Lynn meeting with the first responders. And that was brought to you by horizon. I cried does same as he did just amazing to think about the men and women who. Saved his life. And then he had a chance to meet them. And to say, thank you in person. Wouldn't we all want that moment? Right. And so that that blew me away loved that. Absolutely. And thank you to those who run into trouble. First responders deserves so much credit the NFL one hundred promo at halftime. I actually, and we re tweeted it from our show account after hours CBS, I actually saved it. So that I can go back and watch it because I feel like just the first time through you. Don't catch all of the faith is no everybody who's there? But I love being Saratova's. She was the blonde who yelled first down. And then same with same. Ryan who who's the little girl the one who knows him? Gordon sees me. Sam Gordon, not say Ryan, that's a broadcaster. Gordon was the little girl. She was featured to remember she took the NFL world by storm last year. It was awesome to see so many hall of famers and current. I would call them current household names for instance, Baker Mayfield while he does have the rookie passing record. I mean, he got to hold Tom Brady's rings. Right. So his role was one that was different than a lot of the guys. But can you imagine the logistics of getting all of those men and women into one room at the same time? And then am I the only one who wonders how many takes it took to get that down? I mean, I just wanna know how long they were in that room together. They clearly because the sequences had to film a lot of it together. It's not like they could grandfather all of it in. So I would love to hear the background story. And I'm hoping the NFL will give us some type of of insight about how they got all those athletes together in one room, and what it was like would you love videos of these guys just showing up and talking to each other. And I mean to me that would be fascinating. So I really enjoy. That promo for the NFL's one hundred season. I like Harrison Ford and his dog ordering dog food with Alexa, Amazon I like the Eminem candy commercial. And now I'm anxious to try the candy bar, but Christina Applegate, yelling at the in the back seat. I thought was really good. Let's see what else. The promo because I'm an NCIS. Geek, so that was good. I didn't know there was a Toy Story four. So that was a bit of a surprise to meet you, so yeah, I think I really enjoyed some of the trimmings as the halftime show. I watched another one I I mean, none of those acts are my favorites. Though. I do think Adam LeVine is very talented, but I was taking notes and wasn't really paying attention. In fact, I thought the Twitter the halftime Twitter was was more entertaining than the actual show. Just the reaction to see from people on social media while it is taking place. I did think it was interesting that was it Travis Scott who had to be bleeped out and the way that big boy made his entrance in the car that at the Super Bowl fifty three license plate. I thought that was kinda cool. Oh, the drummer's the I don't know if that was a particular marching band, but I thought the drummer's they were definitely in sync backstreet, boys. They made an appearance as well. It seemed like all of the ads had celebrities in them. I guess that's the latest thing is dropping celebrity into your commercial. So it's memorable. You can find me on Twitter law radio. And also on our Facebook page, Andrew bogusch. I've missed you so much I think that's true. But thank you were saying what? Liar because we have the mornings usually true unless you're grumpy, which apparently is the case. No, no, no doubt about the proper response. Is I missed you too. Amy, amy. I miss you too. I mean, you're married for God. What he's taught. So how did you like the Super Bowl broadcast? The broadcast was fine. It was terrible. Okay. So you're one of those people that has to have a lot of offense to get. I don't need a lot of offense. Like, multiple touch. Rushing touchdowns. Then I'll call it. A good game. I could have handled twenty thirteen threes. A little bit. Plus just like this game in particular. I wanted to see everybody would be a genius and go up and down the field and put the ball in the end zone. So three nothing three three ten three thirteen three almost thirteen. Six doesn't really cut. It for me. Does it? So ironic though that after all the talk about offense this year, the NFL ends up with the lowest gory Super Bowl history. You can't make this stuff up as the game was starting where I was watching yesterday. I said like there's this this this game happens in two ways in my mind. Like, it's thirty five thirty one Rams win or the patriots had them completely figured out and flummoxed and New England wins handily and neither one of those happened. But when I said like New England has them figured out. I still thought they score some points not three what six for twenty-five on third down all play in the red zone yesterday. Sonja Michelle's touchdown. I'll pay one snap Adeyemi. The the idea that the patriots defense was dominant is so true. But so was the Rams until they just ran out of gas at the end and couldn't get quite as much of a pass rush. It's okay to give up thirty points to Tom Brady. You should win the Super Bowl. But, but you know, what's great Peyton Manning. We need to hear from Adria bogus loves Peyton Mann. I July although I didn't see Payton for one second yesterday. Okay. Well, listen, listen. Super Bowl fifty three open. What do you think? Gladiators exactly it's a metaphor listening. We brought you on as a consultant because we've merger football expertise. I mean, there's a Super Bowl champion and one of the great. Excuse me. Two times champion you said. Superbowl champion. The same. Ring Brady's one five don't get my mail at the Super Bowl like Brady does too proud of it. So you're saying he's the best. Yes. He is. He pulls that cranky old guy. My records are getting broken my hero perfectly. Well, good. Well, then it's a great Monday morning to be Andrew bogusch, except I'm pretty sure you were calling for everyone in the country to be arabes fan yesterday. Yeah. Once again, you've been let down. Oh, I love Monday mornings after the patriots win with Ed bogus. You can find me on Twitter Ayla radio also on Facebook one of those Super Bowl standouts that you'll remember from this game because there were actually some do it with Andrew. Here's our latest sports update. Here's the bogus..

"So this tweet Michael boo Blais with the bubbly water. That commercial was pretty dang funny. He he does have a good comedic sense of timing. I've seen him in in those types of situations before I think he was on Saturday Night Live wants to where he was pretty funny. But yeah, he's sitting on the floor crossing out the end of the bubbly on the on the Cain of water and making it an e with a with the accent. Mark. So I liked that one as well liked Harrison Ford, though, sometimes after myself, he's not Hans solo. I liked the Eminem candy bar commercial. Those are the ones that made me laugh. And I think I was pretty impressed that there's a Toy Story four. I maybe that's was common knowledge that was coming out. But I didn't realize it and also the NCIS promo that featured something to do with Ziva who of course, is supposed to be dead now for a couple of years. Those were the ones that kinda captivated me. But I loved the promo for the season of the NFL. And then the Anthony Lynn meeting with the first responders who helped to save his life after what could have been a fatal car crash that actually made me cry. That was a Verizon commercial. Peyton manning. John Malkovich at the beginning. Someone told me it was for nationwide or it was brought to you by nationwide. I didn't remember any of that. I just laughed at Peyton and then got goosebumps with Malkovich inside the Roman Coliseum. So what were the Super Bowl, standouts person or particular moment? There were celebrities everywhere, and I don't mean to the stadium. I mean, the commercials were full of celebrities. Oh, how about Stella our toes? That was funny too. And Alex Rodriguez at Charlie Sheen in the same planters ad that was kind of interesting to it literally felt like the the different corporations. We're pulling out all the stops when it came to celebrity endorsements. It was like every single ad. You saw had someone who was a household. Name a recognizable face. Let's talk to Chris. Who's in Richmond Virginia? Welcome to after hours. CBS sports radio. Good morning, Amy. How you doing? I'm good. Thank you. So I like to to add to has one was the Tony Harris the female football player with Honda. Yes. I like that commercial. I thought that was really inspiring or whatnot and one that I really liked ruined. My wife likes she's a registered nurse, and she was at the hospital during the time the Super Bowl and her. She works with special needs kids. And she was there also in there watching Super Bowl, and she called me right after this one commercial with the Microsoft, adaptive controller. Where the kids that are missing hands or have have physical ability physical abilities. They were all in their crying. And after that commercial. Probably play some video games or stuff like that. So that was I know that's that's how and that's what we liked to. But. Yeah. Commercials. And that one actually felt like the back story to the ad that we had seen before member in the neighborhood. I'm not sure if I, you know, this will be one of the neighborhood were all the kids were rushing to one house because Owen was it was oh, and I think it was about to break a record or get to the next level or something and all the kids were crowded in to watch him. So that Microsoft commercial was about this this boy, which was really cool. So I agree with you. That was also very touching. You know, so much commercials. But it was really touch your mom because we expect that commercial, and especially with sitting there with a bunch of kids watching, you know, in a hospital watch the Super Bowl, you know, they all got excited not him in the back room and my wife, call all. Well. Very cool. Thanks, chris. I appreciate you sharing that with us from Richmond Virginia eight five five two one two four two two seven that's eight five five two one two four two two seven. Just got this tweet from Doug Gladys. Knight seeing the national anthem. Wow. Best ever. I think she just topped Whitney Houston. Not for me. If that's your opinion. I'm glad you loved it. And I thought Gladys was phenomenal. She killed it. And so did the Thunderbirds I was really excited that they actually flew over birth eighties. Ben stadium at the perfect time..

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you. For listening to this week's episode of the big picture, please tune in next week when we will have a brand new Oscar show that we've dubbed the wife of palooza, Amanda Dobbins, and I finally saw the wife, and we are ready to talk about it. And we have so much to say what we'll see you next Tuesday.

That's a better name infinitives Oculus obsidian optometrist. Cover your eyeballs the event run sandy run the long. Blink it. Chris eyeball run for your eyes cornea ocular dread. Sh- magma the shining other just a few that I came up with their pretty good. Those are so much. I'm sure there's some symbolism about the birds and the bird box and how important it was. I'll tell you weren't. That's makes me think of a box of of KFC. Hey bottom line. No, this is based on a book. So the movie title came from the book's title. Well, see they were trying to rope in all those big book fans. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. Netflix knows what they're doing. They get sandy be they get John Malkovich. And they get a big book from last year. Turn it into a movie done deal. It's good stuff. That's what I like about net. Flicks. Are smart. Little too smart. Are you guys ready to review rate rate bird box? I dunno branding us and save on for butts. I have so much to say about bird box. Honestly, like what what do you guys think? It is do you think the the whole demon exposition bit that is ridiculous? What's ridiculous? That's what you think. Well, what do you want you want a scientific explanation? I wanna know can explain that. I wanna know you think it is. Yeah. I think it's some sort of like evil evil. It's an evil just evil. Yeah. Doesn't matter. What gives up it's the day. God gives up on earth. Yeah. And then devils the devils. Like, all right. Let's cleanse out all the good people and have people just be nice and evil. And that's his solution is making it. So if you look at the black hole sun, you and you have a pure heart. You kill yourself. And if you have a dread heart you on love with it. Yeah. Yeah. And you try to expose all everybody else to I kind of like scary moment. It's almost like a type of horror. Sure, I will say I enjoyed it more. So than the a quiet place didn't Alex's you see quiet place. You know, what this is a funny story. I downloaded an illegal copy of a quiet place. I watched it for forty minutes before I realized I downloaded a version without any sound at all oh bless soundtrack. No sound effects. No, nothing. And I thought like I read I like pasta, and I looked online, and it was like the movie was uncomfortable with the watch. Because it was so quiet and theaters people eating popcorn and stuff. And and I was just like, oh, I guess it is a bold choice. But and I thought it was from the deaf girls perspective. But I think Phelps starts out from that perspective. But yeah, I think so, but I was in it the whole time with zero Sam. It was it was interesting. So I didn't get to watch the full movie. I enjoyed very box. Marcel I didn't think I would. So it's a prize me on that on that note. I'm ready to rate. It did Sandra. Bullock, Kevin noticed job. Couldn't I think she had a face titan. I think so too. She looks younger. She looks young. But her face looks has less character as she ages. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. Good. It's just becomes like a fat flatter. Face. Yes. Eventually she'll just have a plane abor playing playing playing piece of paper for face Whiteface. All right. Let's rate bird box. I'm gonna give it two points. It was a little spooky gave me. Some scares some scary imagery, I think they should have hung out while the guy watched the TV monitors. So he didn't kill himself, and they can plugged them. I think they could have helped him out. Spoiler alert two points..

It was Golic. Not gallagher. No, you're you're you're a person of you're trying to save a family. You're trying to go. Grab the mom and the kid while these big monster robots kind of just walk random patterns, but they're always trying to corner you, and if they don't you you die Robotron Robotron. Thank you. Yes. So it's like a Robotron scenario. Where where all the Dumbo are just sort of walking in circles, but you would really immediately see a world of attractive people walking around and unattractive people. Just lawing. All the bodies. No one wanted to jump in. Well, it's kind of like being John Malkovich. Right. You you inhabit John Malkovich. John Malkovich is still there. That's more of. Yeah. That's that's the olive me. Gimmick where you can jump into someone's body the to share it with maybe Martin or Malkovich milk of maybe that's the the experience of future links in their future world. They're like, oh my God. I want to listen to this podcast. But my co sharer hates podcasts. Maybe they've all leapt into your dad's earn. All of them. Maybe they're there. Now. Go check. No super intelligent civilization is involved in your dad's earned because they're hired dimensional. Pam traveling act being no, I don't want to open it not until I'm ready to sprinkle it on mounts who sit now is the order. It has to be set in the I know I don't think so. But there's right next to like Washington, John that one would be very easy. I think that there's I feel an obligation to have a bunch of family members there too and that's hard to coordinate everybody. Like, hey, why don't y'all come to Seattle? We're going to rent a boat and go out into lake Washington. And sprinkle a portion of dads ashes, it has to coincide with something. Yeah. You're not a party planner. I can't really see you sending out that invite it has to be somebody else's event. And then I like co-opt every spoke with the ashes. What we're doing this afternoon fun? John, wait the party. Anyway, future Ling's one way that you can body. Swap is to go on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and pretend to be a funny person that tweets kin in response to everything he he right? Put her applies are so funny to you can find us at Ken Jennings, and John Roderick. I'm also on Instagram where post selfies of myself in the hopes that people will compliment them and say, oh, you look amazing. I've noticed I think because every time I post a selfie generally trying to make some comedy joke. You're like oh this word. I get this shirt. What's up with my hair today? Oh, my hair it's like the will Wheaton like bedhead. But but there's a there's always a segment of the posters that say really complimentary things like you're so cute or oh my God. And I realized that is a social obligation that younger people feel yes. To praise the appear. Of people on on Instagram, and I'm never looking for that. And I'm always embarrassed by people that are like, you're so handsome, what I'm hoping is that people will make some further comedy joke and say like, wow, you look like a you're ruining the bit. Right. It's like that Seinfeld. Instead of saying, God bless you. And you should say you're so good looking became it became the basis of our culture. And really is all you're supposed to do is tell your friends. How amazing oh my God. You're so handsome, but it's like a younger person saying that.

"malkovich" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"That's a that's Joe Berlinger. The the great documentarian directed it, and it deals with how a talented manipulator Ted Bundy was as he strung along his two wives basically up to the point of his execution. Telecast, Jim Parsons, John Malkovich. Yeah. Lily collins. What's Malkovich like real purse? He and I do not have a storyline together. But. Time ago, but we didn't of it's a it's a sprawling story. And I'm not in his story. Got another film, the devil has a name Edward James Olmos directed. That's right. Martin Sheen's in it. You're in it to Alfred Molina the Davis earthern. Yeah. By the way, Davis thin in eight men out is one of the best baseball movies of all ties. Right. Yeah. He is a he's see Kat that movie. Yeah. I just went deep dive on you there. Very cool. Yeah. I love those intersections. Yeah. Yeah. What's your favorite baseball movie? More on that setter lead their own is up there, actually, just as you know, in terms of entertainment value as well as the best one. You know, to me, what makes what makes great sports movie are some of the lines that you can actually relate to and it can be used in any sport or can be used in any part of your your life. Absolutely. Yeah. So with hoosiers whenever I'm in a situation. That's different anybody's in the situation. The different I think of the scene where they measure from the rim to the floor for the free throw line of the baseline. It is same measurement just a different building Butler field houses, just a bigger spot. That's the the line from a league of their own. I think I'm gonna blow it now that I've said it up the Tom Hanks says if baseball was so easy, everyone would do it. Yeah. I think. Yeah. And you could basically say that about any endeavor and true. Yeah. That's terrific. It's hard to make a bait. I think of all the sports that you could make a movie about baseball is probably one of the hardest. And there hasn't been a truly great one in a while. I think that's tested to isn't it true. I don't know. Again. I read this that that the at the end of. Of the natural that Robert Redford had to basically practice throwing baseball. Spoiler alert.

"malkovich" Discussed on Trailer Junkies Podcast
"I looked up where it's supposed to take place and from all things I could tell somewhere in like the UK somewhere in England, you know, and over when I just googled aware Zand over while. I got like New Hampshire Massachusetts, you know, England. I'm like, okay, there's fifty and overs in the world. I don't know which one but from all accounts, I could tell it's probably somewhere in England overall. I like the aesthetics of the typewriter as if Agatha Christie is right as. Continuing to write the story, you know, as far as the character cards and everything I think overall it looks well done I mean in gem Malkovich. Of course, I mean like top these top Bill. Yeah. Are you spoiled at all about John Malkovich? Spoiled with regard to detail to take him seriously as you did early in his career. Now, if you go back to like, you know, whatever mid eighties with John Malkovich in with Sally field when he's the blind guy in places in the heart that character, well, pardon the pun, but that was a heartfelt character. And. And you know, it was one of those things where complete serious. Yeah. I mean, I think he's a great actor. I mean, I'm not sure I understand the question. Do I take a serious? What do you mean? Well, I loved dangerous liaisons which is another mid late eighties. Yeah. And then I was talking with a friend Bartok had dinner with him this evening, and he said ever since read he's kind of spoiled on John Malkovich. And I think he's John Malkovich. He can't take John Malkovich. So seriously, what was red so red was the it's kind of it's an action movie with Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren John Malkovich. May Louise Parker. It's a it's actually a couple of movies. I think it'd read and read to where they play old assassins that get reactivated to take out another old assassin. I gotcha. So it's kinda tongue-in-cheek we like to movies. But I think he was saying like he bit became too much for for his sensibility. You gotta totally love read. Have you ever seen it? Yeah. I love it. Bruce Willis movie. Well, you know, Ann's in for the Roussel movies, Bruce, Willis, she loves the Bruce Willis movies Alertus. But I mean, I would say overall it looks like it would be a good series. I think it's something, you know, going back to black MIR Bander snatch. I think the big thing there is play and replay ability and ABC murders. The thing about it is once you start the big thing with it that I see happening is. And the way the trailer leads me down is I'm gonna start watching it. And I'm not gonna wanna put it down until I figure out. It's like it just I think it's going to it's a traditional who done it, you know. And so you watch it, and you wanna know who did it. So you're just gonna take it to the end. And it's going to be one of those Agatha Christie kind of things to play out you want to know who done it, you know. We're we're actually we're actually fans of murder on the Orient Express. You know, I think it kind of bombed in the box office. But an-and I like like that movie. We like Kenneth Brennan's take on another Agatha Christie classic. You know? No. I completely agree. I mean, I love that kind of stuff. I mean, you know, you sit there and you just sit down it would a bucket of popcorn. And it just takes you through and guides you, and you know, and maybe there's like sting on the audience, and maybe there's not there's a little twists and turns. And you watch it and they're just good stories. I mean, they're like, okay, I was gonna say wholesome, but yet is murder and stuff. But it's like old timey tales of who done. It minus the gore, you know, minus all that stuff..
