Tom Hanks goes to war (again) in the World War II drama
"19. So many of these big blockbuster movies are now going to be available on your TV as opposed to the movie theater, and this one was for the movie. Industry for the movie studios. This one must have been right on the line. Richard Roper, the new Tom Hanks movie Greyhound Big budget, lots of special effects. It's a World War two. Venture film right and they chose. They chose to go with Apple TV plus to release it. Exactly right. In fact, you know the beginning of this year way back in the day when we were going to movies in theatres I talked about this is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year because, as you mentioned it's a Tom Hanks film. And who has Dunmore in terms of entertainment movies and miniseries for World War two that Tom Hanks of her Saving Private Ryan and then band of brothers in the Pacific and Greyhound. He wrote this and actually stars in this row. And although it's not based on a true story, it's actually based on a novel. It's inspired by the very real events of the Battle of the Battle of Atlanta. Sick, which you know was waged on the Atlantic Ocean was longest running battle in all of World War two. And it was all about convoys of allied ships trying to get supplies across the pond, while German u boats were attacking from all ends. That's what this movie is all about. Now. The invention. Tom Hanks connection to war, too. And the press junket for the release of this film, So the people obviously they go out. They publicized All They want to talk to you about its Corona virus, right? Yeah, it's just tell your side of the times. Well and, of course, because Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, were among the very, very first public figures to test positive. I believe you could correctly. I believe they're in Australia make making a movie. So, you know, I understand that and Tom Hanks has got such a no, he has. He has earned a role as more than just an actor, writer director producer. He's someone who's been around for a long time, but involved in a lot of things very intelligent and Educated guy when it comes to current events, so people do want to hear from him Now. The unfortunate part about all of this row is that Greyhound is not a great movie. In fact, I'm giving it to and 1/2 stars for the biggest disappointment. And I'll tell you why you remember. A few months ago we talked to Harrison Ford, who had done a movie called Call of the Wild or the Procedure. I he talked about how in a lot of these battle movies, war movies. They overdo it with the CG, and he actually said member, he actually said there are too many bleeping planes in the sky in a lot of these movies, and that's exactly unfortunately, what happens here. They did film some of this aboard a ship, I believe was the Canadian ship. But mostly it's CG Iroh, and it's very obvious that it is because you know the swooping cameras. It's almost like a Michael Bay movie. And so many planes in the sky and so many ships, etc. And so great special effects and then a lot of technical jargon. The problem is, we don't get to know any of the other characters other than the Tom Hanks character, and we got Haven't we don't know what we talked about the great War movies and you and I have talked about a lot of them. We did a podcast around Memorial Day about some of the great American War films. We get to know the characters first, we're emotionally invested in them, and then if something happens to one of them, or there's heroics or tragedy, it has an impact in this movie. All the characters are so superficially drawn that at one point, but Tom Hankscharacter asked a guy on the ship. He gets his name wrong and goes. I'm sorry, I'm still learning who everybody else's. And I'm like we are, too and that's never a good thing in a movie like this. Wow. Oh, that's That is so disappointing. When does it I'm still gonna watch. When does it premiere tonight? Or tomorrow? Tomorrow? And I will say this, too. I do think it might look better on the big screen. You know, maybe those special effects on a giant screen they either could've been magnified or they would have played better. He watching it in a home viewing environment. It just took me out of the film like I'm saying, Well, they clearly did this with computer generated stuff, and I think they just fell in love with the

'Fat Guys at the Movies' Kevin Carr on reopening of theatres amid pandemic
"We are joined by our guys at the movies guy Kevin Kerr and Kevin I know theaters are opening here in Pinellas county they're gonna open up again right now the much to the chagrin of some but the movies themselves aren't being made anymore now than it's going to be a while probably for Hollywood cranks it up again and well yeah I think people are waiting and seeing what's going to happen because the movie that's that's next on the slate the next one that that had a release date that did not get moved his talent which is David of seasoning which is Christopher Nolan's latest film he of course did inception and the dark knight movies in interstellar and Dunkirk and this is going to be a big movie part of it is it's a seventy millimeter film the once showed him thirty five millimeter and seventy millimeter to my Max but it's also two hundred million dollars so you need to have as many theaters open and you got to have them being able to play and you also have to have a sort of that consumer confidence of people going out to do it you can't deal with the suppressed audience now they just dropped attendance trailer yesterday last night and it is it does not have a release date all the trailer but according to the website it's still coming out on July seventeenth so we'll see before there's new content that that's coming out I think this is one of those you know what came first chicken or the egg the reader is going to open up a nationwide or are they gonna start releasing movies first and and that's something but I think it's a wait and see I think there's there's still some time left for this to be pondered could you see because the state of Georgia is opening up and we know that there's a lot of film incentives out there could you see Hollywood packing up and maybe going out east to Georgia to get some of this film work done for future movies well here's the problem with actually ramping up the production as well is it the there's there's the insurance issue that that every large production had carries of some sort of production insurance it says that they're going to be able to continue to produce and make this movie and that there's not something that's going to happen to it like a great example is in the fast and furious movie there this is one of the best movies there in the middle of making and Paul Walker died and then change the schedule and change the budget and changed everything they had insurance that covered that it's gonna be very hard to start up production on anything with any sort of coronavirus insurance so like the big productions are still out you know I E. independent doesn't matter where they where they go even Tyler Perry's talk about opening up but you're going to have to have distancing there as well either talking about producing smaller movies like a Blumhouse is going to be doing something Michael bay has one that he wants to start producing very soon but those are going to be smaller low budget the productions are not gonna be the two hundred million dollar blockbusters well they're going to be interesting to see how it all plays out and I guess going to be big for Netflix and Hulu and all of those like that

"Back and so Democrats and even some conservatives have pointed out the need for additional financial assistance for people who've lost their jobs in the pandemic there are people who are starving who can't feed themselves who can't feed their families. It's clear that you know one. Twelve hundred dollar check or even a second one or probably not gonNA get us through this and so there there are people within the GOP who are basically saying yeah. That's cool like we get. The people need it. But you know when they're going to need it even more is when they're almost starved to death in it's almost the election and then we give the money and they're going to be like wha- thank you just make it rain on. Us T rump. The there's a lot of tea I mean yes house Democrats. They're like here's our next bill that we think people need that we talked about it that is going to bring relief to the citizens but the GOP finds a way to wag their finger at working people who need help anybody. Who's not a billionaire asking to Siphon off our tax fund so they can reallocate the wealth fat in that direction and. Yeah Jack saying what's really interesting about this people out here just saying the like full-throated okay. This is from. Tom Davis who was a former Congressman from Virginia? He just said you might WanNa make sure you have not shot your whole wad now. This is something he said when asked about additional relief for for citizens he says. You may want to have something ready. Go some temporary. It's an election year. The long term in this cycle is till November. That's what the long Not Derail but the idea that this guy is talking about a wide again speaks to the male sexuality is so normal and mundane. Isn't you're not gonNA care about what happened and you're actually going to want to run away from the situation so for going to be good better and also that he's like equating doing a one to one with like coming and preserving human lives where it's a luxury? Okay a little so gross. Like it's like yeah we're GONNA need to hold our wad and let innocent people die for no reason and then. I'm GONNA come at the end of the year is the only way that Republicans can come is. If there's someone poorest starving yes there porn K. O. Are N hands but their whole thing. Yeah just like well. It's fine now because clearly what they just got now is the pre come and clearly they got pregnant off of that so just wait until the wad hits and the election is ours so now what they're saying is like but even people who understand the economy that are conservative or like. Yeah okay like I get. You just. Don't want to spend that money. But the problem is seventy percent of our economies consumer spending so if they don't have money to give us back to just write back to us then nothing works so maybe you do WanNa give them a check. And so the guy who runs sinclair broadcasting was telling trump about this ideas like dude. How about you handle these prepaid debit cards. That are fucking trump branded. Debit cards. Mnuchin had one of these cards. Yesterday wasn't trump card but it was. It was like a debit card similar to like if you got unemployment in this state or like other states have their like prepaid card but has like a gigantic trump signature on. It did that with the letters like if you received a hard check you got the big I mean and that was a big deal to. That's so manipulative. So that whole thing is like and but the but a lot of these other people who are running industries too are asking for bailout on. You're like a you know like economic populism could actually be good for you to like. There's it's not just going to be a bad thing. Although I know your instinct is just to give all the like cut up the pie and give it to like the one percent homeys but this could also help you know like the election part of it. But you know we'll see. Apparently he called Jared Kushner into the room after the guy gave him the said pitched the idea of the trump card. Is I get in here? You've got to hear this. It's my name on a lot of things. More on. Atalanta fell show Russell Simmons. Unfortunately that is smart marketing like that appliance. Yeah literally the only thing. He knows how to do great marketing. Yeah I mean we all got a card is money on it. We would spend it right no matter what was on it. Yeah again. I'd imagine I mean maybe there'd be something you could spend it on. That would be some form of protest but still probably way down the barrel of that signature. Yeah that's move so along with that though too is we're shifting into just full on like everything is horsh it. Nothing's real that we can't we can't actually have like meaningful discussion or media coverage because we're too busy covering the dumb shit And right now like it's full on Horse Shit Mania right now like the hydroxy clerk thing is unbelievable. And I think it's great because rather than talking about like you know the coverage being by Oh you've completely botched the pandemic response rather than like you know if you're in a test failing your test and you don't want people to talk about that just start you know getting naked and peeing in your mouth and everyone's like not talking about that. You failed the test. The story like this Guy Is Ping in his mouth. I don't know what the heck and this is. What's happened with this hydroxy chloroquine thing? It's just completely taken. The focus off people are fucking dying still and money is going the complete opposite direction. We're talking about fucking hydroxy chloroquine. And now I don't know WanNa know that name. I'm mad that I even know the name of that medicine. Yeah exactly that you have but I think this is the thing just like with the whole trump you know biosphere twitter sphere. Take Tako sphere. All of his father's now they're marching orders. Which is like our hydroxy caloric wins. The new culture war battle were all going to go into the lives and from Cunanan followers they're posting bootleg recipes to make your own hydroxy chloroquine with like fruit wines. And not to mention like some of these things like a grapefruit Ryan could react really severely with someone's other medication. There's another guy was like drink. A bunch of tonic water because the quinine or Quinine. How do you pronounce that in the Tonic Water? That's like hydroxy chloroquine. Clearly just quinine sound sort of like Cunanan hydroxy chloroquine one. Yeah well no. I think they are saying. Very sort of tenuous Lee that like. Someone said like the amount of tonic water. You'd have to drink even approach. Some kind of like you sort of comparable effect would be like twenty five bottles a day for a week straight. Okay but I'm GonNa Follow that recipe but I'm not going to believe scientists that say don't fucking take that shit right cool makes sense got it. Yeah Sebastian Gorka is like using prescription bottles of hydroxy chloroquine as like a status symbol on instagram. Glad he's back in the news and so there's this thing called the Association of American physicians and surgeons the a which sounds. That sounds official right. American is Association of American any. Okay go on. I trust in so rad. Par scale the guys running trump twain twenty tweeted that this medical organization said that hydroxy chloroquine has about ninety percent chance of helping covid patients. So we've been wrong all along because that sounds like an official body. Yeah pond as a live. I'm down to hone sciences there. I'll get right if cure. That is in tonic. Water fruit runs That I actually cures covid. Nineteen Hell yes. Please be these be right about something for the first time ever a but it turns out the of American physicians and Surgeons Not as a scientifically rigorous as that name. Would you believe they are in fact a scam group that uses their official? Sounding Name Digest. You know lend the appearance of medical wisdom to culture war battles like they they support Antibac- shit they support any conspiracy theory about abortions being poisonous. They have the the whole thing. So Judd leg who started this newsletter called Pop- Popular Info. I would actually encourage everybody every listener to sign up for it. There's a free version. There's also a version you can pay to judge isn't very good. Yeah Popular Info. And he's an independent journalist. He's the one who broke that Kroger story like he's just really like his newsletters. Really great resource in these in this era. Were in because we have we get so much shit in the news that sometimes you prefer to get some independent journalism that isn't tied to a mega conglomerate corporation. So with this going into it. They're fucking hitlist is absolutely absurd just to start off. He went through this spreadsheet that the a pre whatever this group has the spreadsheet that they use their evidence that that the hydroxy chloroquine was actually potentially leave a safe thing to use. It's such a meant off. Elite terribly manipulated spreadsheet like. The data is absolutely cynically thrown in there. To show appoint experts looked at it and instantly got nosebleeds from just how awful and backwards. There's a fucking section in this spreadsheet that says Dr Oz treated to patients with covid nineteen with hydroxy chloroquine and both of them recovered covered. There's a fucking entire draws would have mentioned that that's so weird and don't keep a guy you proud again. Jack was saying they're hits. Include from the past such medical genius takes as HIV probably doesn't cause AIDS nicotine not addictive abortion with those cause cancer anti bags conspiracy bullshit up the Yin Yang and the grandfather. Grand fucking federal row please. Obama tricked Jews in devoting for him using mind control. This is what this is very much. Allow me to just reach. This is what this is what this group. This group has put on paper out loud for people to read is Barack Obama or brilliant orator captivating millions through his eloquence or is he deliberately using the techniques of neuro linguistic programming a covert form of hypnosis techniques of trance induction include extra slow speech rhythm tonality vagueness visual Imagery Metaphor Blah Blah Blah. Obama said sixteen months have passed paused. Thousands PAS OF MILES PAS millions of Voices Obama is clearly having a powerful effect on people especially young people and highly educated people both considered to be especially susceptible to hypnosis also interesting that many Jews are supporting supporting Obama Anyway. So that's Cuban. The sign off on hydroxy chloroquine very good impression of Obama. I thought it was spot on by the way was five pa. It is weird..

You just don't want to spend that money, but the problem is seventy percent of our economies consumer spending, so if they don't have money to give us back to just write back to us, then nothing works so maybe you do WanNa. Give them a check, and so the guy who. Who runs sinclair broadcasting was telling trump about this ideas like dude. How about you handle these prepaid debit cards that are fucking trump branded debit cards? MNUCHIN had one of these cards. Yesterday wasn't trump card, but it was. It was like a debit card similar to like if you got unemployment in this state or like other states have their like prepaid card, but has like a gigantic trump signature on it. Did that with the letters like if you received a hard check. You got the big I. Mean, and that was a big deal to. That's so manipulative. So that whole thing is like, but the but a lot of these other people who are running industries, too are asking for bailout on. You're like a you know like economic populism could actually be good for you to like there's it's not just going to be a bad thing although I. Know Your instinct is just to give all the like cut up the pie and give it to like the one percent homeys, but this could also help you know like the election part of it. But you know we'll see apparently. He called Jared Kushner into the room after the guy gave him the said the idea of the trump card is i. get in here. You've got to hear this. It's my name on a lot of things more. On Atalanta. Fell Show Russell Simmons. Unfortunately, that is smart marketing like that. Appliance. Yeah literally the only thing he knows how to do great. Marketing. Yeah! I mean we all got a card. Is Money on it? We would spend it right no matter what was on it. Yeah again. I'd imagine I mean. Maybe there'd be something you could spend it on. That would be some form of protest, but. Still probably way. Down the barrel of that signature. Yeah, that's. Move. So. Along with that, though too like is, we're shifting into just. Full on like everything is Horsh it? Nothing's real that we can't. We can't actually have like meaningful discussion or media coverage because we're too busy covering the dumb shit, and right now like it's full on Horse Shit Mania right now like the hydroxy clerk thing is unbelievable and I think it's great, because rather than talking about like you know the coverage being by Oh. You've completely botched the pandemic response rather than like you know if you're in a test failing your test. And you don't want people to talk about that. Just start you know getting naked and peeing in your mouth, and everyone's like not talking about that. You failed the test the story like this. Guy Ping in his mouth I? Don't know what the heck and this is. What's happened with this hydroxy chloroquine thing? It's just completely taken the focus off. People are fucking dying still and money is going the complete opposite direction. We're talking about fucking hydroxy chloroquine, and now I don't know WanNa know that name I'm mad that I even know the name of that medicine. Yeah, exactly. That you have but I think this is the thing just like with the whole trump, you know biosphere twitter sphere take tako sphere. All of his father's now they're marching orders, which is like our hydroxy caloric wins. The new culture war battle were all going to go into. The lives and from Cunanan followers. They're posting bootleg recipes to make your own hydroxy chloroquine with like fruit wines. and not to mention like some of these things like a grapefruit, Ryan could react really severely with someone's other medication. There's another guy was like drink a bunch of tonic water, because the quinine or Quinine. You pronounce that in the tonic water. That's like hydroxy chloroquine. Clearly just. Quinine sound sort of like Cunanan. Hydroxy chloroquine one. Yeah, well. No I think they are saying very sort of. Tenuous Lee that like someone, said like the amount of tonic water. You'd have to drink. Even approach some kind of like you. Sort of comparable. Effect would be like twenty five bottles a day for.
"michael bay" Discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"They WANNA edge this out. We're going to talk about the We're officially in the horseshoe phase of the pandemic fighter. We a lot of us thought we had reached there, but now it's it's official. Just say some of this shit is wild court. Yeah we're also email and boating war so we'll talk about that. Trump is officially declaring war on mail and voting on your rights on your. On your rights. We're GONNA. Talk about Michael Bay. He's got a movie. The first movie that's going to go into production after things. Open back up. It's called SONGBIRD and guys. It's up now the pandemic. Boy What if movie but pandemic? I hope he brings back his wife headstone from the rock better. Still the world like. Hummel. Of all the horrifying things in the Michael Bay film, Canon. That is the most egregious I'm so glad I. WE I've I. rediscovered that on the episode of Back Casting on talk about Iraq and like my agro male nineties, action porn flicks I was watching. yeah I feel like he got like his entire career. Now is a reaction to the negative. Somewhat negative like slightly negative response to his first handful of movies like he's now just like. Declared War on anybody WHO's not like a right wing agro action. Yeah like he's just like. Oh, you didn't like that while you're gonNA, fucking. You didn't like Armageddon Mother fucking. Yeah, that's that's the best way to make art actually. Wagers. Darker the mood I bet there's a significant male portion of the population that would be more absolutely more distraught if Michael. Bay's films vanished more than like the Bible. One hundred percent like that would be like already people are. Good schools, but if you're like TNT is no longer gonNA. Show Michael Bay. Films Fx will no longer show Michael who? First! Day took God out of schools. In Stoke, Armageddon? You're doing. Hung. Three..
Netflix Posted a Huge Earnings Beat
"Onto some net flicks earnings net flicks beat expectations overall in Q.. Four but fell short and the US due to increased competition titian worldwide. Netflix added eight point. Seven six million subscribers for total of one hundred sixty seven point one million subscribers. It's fastest growing. Region was Asia Pacific where it added one point seven five million users. Netflix added five hundred twenty thousand subscribers in the US that was short though of expected. Six hundred thousand financially. It reported stronger than expected revenue at five point. Four seven billion dollars and earnings per share of one dollar and thirty cents analysts had expected earnings of fifty three cents per share so they did do good on revenue. Nuts looks expects to add seven million subscribers worldwide below the eight point two million projection from analysts. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag here when you look at these these numbers the company and this is very interesting also has started citing viewers statistics based on a shorter amount. Round of you in time. So if I watched a show and I was counted as watching a show previously that would be completing seventy percent or more of an episode of a TV show or movie. Now netflix is reporting seventy. Six million households chose to watch the WITCHER and eighty three million chose to watch Michael. Bay's six underground but choosing to watch is now defined as starting a film or episode and watching at least two minutes so this is this last is most interesting interesting to me like netflix grew a little slower than possible. Everybody's making hey of like. Oh it's Disney plus an apple. TV plus okay. Maybe maybe it is. It probably is but the the fact that they are moving from. We never report subscriber. Numbers are never report viewership numbers to we're going to report some big viewership numbers that are seventy percent watch too two. We want to report big numbers but they only need two minutes. Watch to make those big numbers that tells me that they're feeling a little pressure to put out some. Even this is like this is like auto play at numbers. You know where you're like. Oh somebody plays two minutes. Two minutes is better than the auto play where he gets. Shut off really fast. It wouldn't be fair if if I after. Two minutes of a feature length film. I did not like that film. Yeah no that is not a watch that is me saying it's not an accidental start. But it's not an I liked it. If you've only seen two minutes of Michael Basics underground they should read Michael Base Lodge it. Yeah if you WANNA early watch two minutes of six underground watching these two minutes. I mean I it's it's interesting. I also think they have to kind of change these numbers not just because I think those are good the reasons you guys state but I think that there may be another thing a play here which is there is now so much new content happening on Netflix. Every day or every week new content being added that. You're starting to have a you kind of crowded content problem and a lot of that content I refer to not leaving. It's there permanently and so a shorter view of a thing. Might actually be a valuables statistic because a lot of us are doing shorter checks on a thing whether I wanna see it or not where it used to be. Well I've got this choice between movies already know in love and this new thing they made. Now it's got twenty new things. They made plus eight movies routed. I don't even know if I'm GonNa like this. I'm going to give it a couple of minutes. It helped me. I'll stay or open. I'm out of here like I can kind of see why that that that that would be a strategy that that goes along with just content overage in there if you know what I'm saying I'm calling it now Netflix. This is long term thinking and what they want is a few years down the road when Disney plus is still reeling from people like wait. You had all the marvel movies but now you lost him because of these deals that we're done before Disney plus. Why can I count on the fact that Harry Potter was on Peacock? Now it left in its an HBO. Max Netflix will start pointing to their library and say we own ours. All of our stuff you still there stranger things still there. You could still rewatch it. It'll flip it'll it'll try to flip it but yeah. The international story is one to watch Netflix. The fact that they're international numbers. Latin America Asia asia-pacific are skyrocketing. They're doing great international content. That is the future of Netflix. And the slowing down in the US. Maybe it's because of Disney plus or maybe it's just you know the US us is behind for a while for Netflix. So I don't know that it necessarily is. Yeah I mean number one market for some time. The numbers have been had. You know it's this is this. This is a this is a familiar familiar quarterly earnings report for no looks like Hey. International numbers are skyrocketing in particular markets Specifically but not so much in the US. It's like well you know you reach. Saturation what I wonder is especially with original content and how that's working so Well for streaming services. If you've got a head you know that that that that makes more sense at least to a subscriber like me than back catalogue because how many times I'm really really GonNa Watch even my favorite movie type thing. I WANNA see new stuff. How is that going to change the kind of original content that people see knowing what the strong markets
Brad Pitt Is an Astronaut Trying to Save the World in 'Ad Astra' Trailer
"Brad Pitt is the latest heartthrob to take on lorries favorite subject in movies space is here being sarcastic Donnie, just a little bit. All right. We posted this trail of the movie is called ad AD ad Astra and read pit plays astronaut ROY McBride travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his dad played by Tommy Lee Jones, other travel mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. It looked like Armageddon meets Michael bay movie was this movie. There is gossip going around Hollywood, that it is bad bad, because it was supposed to come out in February of this year. No trailers, no nothing really. Hold it from the schedule. They tried to save because Disney brought FOX. Yes, of course, they did Hollywood speak. Oh, gosh. We gotta dump this trash. I real dilemma with that because he doesn't want anything sinking of once upon a time in Hollywood. Right. Let's take a look at this trailer.
Breaking Down 'Shazam!'
"Finds itself at an interesting inflection point. I would say I thought she was a very fun and entertaining movie, but it did not really feel like anything that had come in the DC universe before. And you kind of explain to me. What should I am is? And what it's trying to do. Sure. I mean, I kind of had the. To do the same thing after watching the movie because like right around the time the post credits scene with a evil Caterpillar happened. I was kinda like I've no idea what any of this stuff is. So thankfully, Mike does have a a piece on the ring dot com. A great website kind of breaking down the kind of Kazan origins. But yeah, he's he was actually originally called captain marvel and like in the movie there was like a wizard named 'schisms who gave him like all these superpowers. But when he sorta got folded into DC comics because marvel had its own captain marvel he then became Zam. But the whole spiel is basically the same thing like the wizards powers you activate it by saying Zam, and then I guess in the big conversion you just become buff, Zachary Levi. Yeah, I didn't even know buff Zachary Levi was going to be a thing that I would ever have to talk about. I can't say when I was watching Chuck ten years ago. That this ever crossed my mind that he would be a superhero, I think Tony Lee. This movie is pretty significantly different from superman vs Batman and the Justice league films and even wonder woman, which I thought was you know, is a very charming and obviously hugely successful movie. But there is a lightness in the tone, and it's not quite as operatic goofy. As was l-. You know, what did you make of the kind of movie that Sam was trying to be yet? No, I thought it was fun at kind of had like almost throwback Amblin entertainment coming of age vibe like something you'd see from like Amblin in like the eighties. But with the caveat that instead of a kid going on venture or something he can just become a superhero. But I thought it was a it was it was kind of an appropriate tone for for the kind of here that this guy is and I kind of like that, you know, a kid like a teenager becoming Kazan like he has like a bit of an aimlessness to him at the beginning. Like, there's not the sort of great power with great with great power comes great responsibility type speech. You just sorta has to learn things on the fly Yemen. One of the first things that the character does after he realizes his powers as he just goes to a convenience store in buys beer and candy. And you know, I it, you know, the movies clearly pitched as sort of what if big, but superhero, and it's very effective in showing us like maybe not with the real world ramifications would be because it's a little bit different in tone in the real world. But some of the like aspirations that you have as an adolescent, and the things that you wish you could do when you were thirteen sham does for the first hour of this movie, and the movie ultimately just becomes a story about like friendship and the way that we act bigger and older than we are. And what we can get away with in that time. And then it does turned into a little bit of a superhero movie. What did you make of the kind of balancing of those tones? Yeah. I mean, I think I did prefer sort of the the first half of the move. In that respect, as you know, there are so many superhero movies out there. And I think for the most part it's sorta gets derivative to when the movie gets the guy discovers his powers, you know, like Peter Parker, like scaling skyscrapers type of thing. But it was fun for Suzanne because it felt very like very genuine response. What if a fourteen year old kids suddenly had powers like, yeah? He would try to buy beer. He would go to script strip club in like beam about the chicken wings because this is a PG thirteen movie. You know, if he's in a world where superman Batman exists, and he doesn't really know. What to do is? You just if he can't find people to save is he just going to he's going to try to make cash and become a YouTube star. It was an interesting approach. But I think like I preferred that half of the movie versus like, the Mark strong shows up with seven CGI deadly sin, archetypes, or whatever. And it's time to punch him a lot. Yeah. I agree. I don't think part was active. It's funny because it feels like a movie like this, which is not exactly a reinvention. But is a is a reconsidering of what these kinds of movies can be still does arrive and its conclusion at the notion that needs to feature a lot of punching and a lot of fighting the bad guy. I'm curious to see if as we grow inside, the D C E U, I guess much like Zam. If they'll ever change the the the approach that they take having kind of the final showdown in the final forty five minutes of the movie that was also one of my struggles. Honestly with wonder woman, which I thought as I said was really clever and well made and then ultimately just turned into Diana fighting a demon monster who was played by David through Lous. What do you make of the decisions that DC is now making to singular is each of their movies? I mean, it's interesting because like, you know, they they did a pretty quick pivot from like fast-tracking their Justice league movie which end up being like relative to the expectations a bit of a bomb for them. Also, it didn't really track critically. But you know, they're kind of like making these films that have this very little interconnectivity like aquaman was only really playing the seeds for Auckland to and I guess a trench spinoff, which I could go on like a twenty minutes handed about the trench about the trend. Can't wait for the trench. And like kind of the same thing with wonder woman sequel in feels that way, which is. To you know, if it does well enough at the box office like affiliates just leading into sham two or maybe like a black atom movie, which is like a sham villain. That's supposed to be played by Dwayne Johnson. If you look at like the C projects that are in the air like a rebooted suicide squad, James Gunn, new bad movie. Perhaps a flash movie there's all these other projects like the one glaring omission is there are no plans to make like a Justice league to and not to say that would never happen again. But clearly like the D C you right now is content. Just kind of throwing stuff out there and seeing what resonates with audiences yet. If you look down there slate, we talked about this a little bit during the release of aquaman, but I was just in add an in Vegas at cinema Khan. And they were very proud of the approach that they were taking telling their stories because the next the next handful of movies. They have is of course, Zam, and you know, they also have joker which is coming in October. Which also feels quite standalone seems to have virtually nothing in common with the movie Lakesha Zam. And then there's also a birds of prey which is. Theon story of sort of five superhero team that will also include Margot Robbie Harley Quinn, and that totally and visually looks completely different from those other two movies. And so they've taken this decision to not just make that flash movie and not just make whatever inevitable green lantern movie. And with the same kind of stormy visualises that that Zack Snyder created, but to just kind of individually each story, which is what a lot of comic books are actually a lot of comic books have separate illustrators. They have separate writers their tones are quite different amazing spider. Man could be quite different from x men and superman could be quite different from, you know, detective comics, and what's going on with that, man. And of course, I guess next year late next year. We'll have the Batman which Matt Reeves Batman movie. Do you know, your your very closely track the comp films for us is it more interesting to you of all of this the fits together or do you like it better? If it stands alone and the movies get to be what they are. Well, I. Kind of like maybe I just have a bit of a marble fatigue. Just because it feels like we've been preparing for endgame like just just forever. But yeah, I kind of like this approach because you know, like, if something doesn't, you know resonate with with audiences like I personally wasn't as big of a fan as as wonder woman as other people were which is fine. You know, I I like parts of it. But, but you know, for the most part people really enjoyed it. And I think you know, it's an interesting approach. I think what will probably be most interesting is with wonder woman command and Zam they've all been pretty well received. And they've made a good amount of money. I'm curious what happens like how the DC EU responds when something flops with critics audiences in the box office. Do they like shake it off? Or if it's like, if it's bracing a certain tone, like, you know, let's say joker is actually quite terrible. And and you know, it's like a Scorsese prestige that. Just kind of doesn't work like will the DC you kinda void being that experimental. Again. I I'm curious to see what happens when there's kind of like a speed bump on the road for them. I am too is an interesting question because it does seem like in with Shas AM and most likely joker and handful of these other movies. They don't come with that two hundred and fifty million dollar production price tag. You know, they're definitely smaller movies with more modest ambitions, at least in terms of the execution of the movie. And so the risk is lower. So if let's say joker is not the sort of world-beating, cultural colossus that many would have us believe this week. That's okay. I think that they could probably survive that. And it's an you're right. It is a really interesting pivot away from all of that interconnectiveness. Is there anything else about his that you you really liked and you responded to? Yeah. I really like that, you know, I thought Zachary Levi was was just so good at like kind of capturing basically like, you know, a kid in a swollen dealt spot ended it so well like there were times where you almost felt to childlike for guy who's still like fourteen years old, but you could tell he was just having such a blast. And and yeah, I would have never expected Chuck would be like a swollen superhero. But I never expected Jim from the office to like, you know, make some hard movie also become buffer like Michael bay film. So I I guess, you know sick. I'm stars. They can transform. Yeah. Could you cast a sitcom debauche sitcom figure into into a superhero movie right now is there? Anybody springs to your mind? Is Jim Parsons our next. Green lantern. You think? Oh god. No, no. I'm trying to think of like if someone from parks and rec ado that transformation that isn't Chris Pratt. Because I mean, he's he's just forget about this point. He's he's like a discount printing. Frazier. But he he has done that as well. I mean, I guess maybe if if Adam Scott were cast as as galactic that would probably that. That's as close as we're gonna get
"michael bay" Discussed on Piecing It Together Podcast
"But at the same thing at the same time a Michael bay, blah. Buster movie. So in other words, they weren't really focused on a story they were focused on this spectacle. And it wasn't more of like story messes or dialogue. It was more of spectacle. Get two point from point eight point be. So here's spectacle, one here spectacle to how do we connect the dots? Go from that spectacle to so like it was very to me like kind of tarring type of movie of of just like gogo. And then it was like, wait. It was all go. But what happened you hopefully, totally just basically did my next puzzle peas, which is Michael bay and transform typically which it's so true, it's spectacle. And then more spectacle happens. There's no actual there's no soul little plot. So little like anything driving it. Just let's make a big fancy action sequence and another big fancy action sequence. And then another big fence sequin. Right. And so what I what I mentioned Disney. So I was thinking of to me, I think force awakens in lashed yet. I n even solo they're all three guilty of that. And at the same time, I feel like Infinity wars guilty of that as well. And and also the parts of the Caribbean movies are guilty of that again. The Johnny Depp connection the there's entrance forms. Yes. Michael bay. Of course, the first transformers, I still think that one's good that once got character development, but it goes away off the rails. And then the pirates of the Caribbean. The the first one is really great. But then after that they go off the rails. Especially like the last parts movie. It was fun, and it was filled with tons and tons of like, you know, really neat. Things that happened. So then I don't remember what the plot was damning. And and also like just bloated and and spectacle. And so the that's totally what this one was and yeah, it's it's lots of fun stuff. What's neat stuff? But then I'm just like, well, what what do I really REM kind of all blends together yet it kinda just is like, yeah. Like, a long trailer almost you know. Yeah. And they kind of really what it is. So that's true. It absolutely. And and your your you're steamrolling all my puzzle pieces here. Because you have touched on another one. But I'm going to save it for when it's my turn next. Okay. Okay. Still talk about it. You're not taking away from me. Chad. What what's your next straight up puzzle piece? Well, the the one though. Kind of basically in the same vein of of what we're talking about..
Netflix cracks a window
"KCRW sponsors include net. Flicks presenting the love me when I'm dead chronicling the last years of Orson Welles life the genius behind citizen. Kane. It's wildly entertaining while full of nuance and depth directed by Morgan Neville, only on net. Flicks. November second I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Finally I mean, we sort of expected this for a while but net flicks finally finally is cracking after trying to get into the awards race in a real way for a while. Now, they really want this, and they have in a very I think serious contender in quirones Roma, which is a black and white film very much in art house film. I would save as having seen it very much a film, ironically that you would wanna see on a big screen. You cannot make a movie with Cuaron if you don't bend or an artist like Koran if you don't somewhat bend to his will. So netflix. Has said they will let this movie run exclusively in theaters some theaters for awhile, it's a concession and their couple of other films in this category. But let's focus on the big one for now couple of other films in this category. They're going to allow this with it's a concession. I'm not sure that it's a really fabulous concession. Well. It is a big deal that Netflix, which has steadfastly stuck to this party line that we are releasing movies on Netflix worldwide the same day that we're putting them in a few theaters. That's the key here. They're moving three movies from the exclusive day and date on Netflix to invaders for about two or three weeks in advance and a few theaters. And the message here is that Netflix wants to play ball with elite talent and get into that Oscar race, which they have been unable to do. And is this going to make a difference? I don't know. But it is a big concession from. Netflix to go away from what they? I have said is their model all on net flicks to giving this the window which will allow those audiences to see it in theaters. I'll tell you what I think I think that net. Flicks made such a fetish of this. And I understand they were launching something, but movies are movies, in some cases. It really does matter as I said Romans one of them, I think that they made such a stink about this that certain theaters don't want anything to do with running their movies. They still don't want that relationship. And I also think this is a small number of theaters fifty around the world, I think is the number, and I'm just guessing you've got an otter like Koran and he's not the only one that is going to seem like not enough. Now, you could say, you know, this will be was made without Netflix money and net flicks, then acquired it in in a way made it possible for the world to see it. And you could say many people do it's better to be seen on screens. You know, more people will see it this way. However, I suspect that not only will the theater is still largely shunned it, but an artist like. Warren will say, you know, this really is not enough. And next time. I'm not doing it. Well, not if he wins best picture, which is gonna pour millions of dollars into campaign to win him best picture, and they believe that by putting it in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and couple of other big cities. They will have a better shot at winning best picture for this guy. And you know, it's it's the push pull it's a huge global audience that Netflix can provide. But they don't give you that theatrical push that many filmmakers want, and to me, the most interesting thing here is Netflix is drawing a line. They're saying these three movies are worthy of the releases. But if I'm a filmmaker that has a movie at Netflix, I say to my agent, where's my theatrical release where why am I not getting what L fonds Roan or the Coen brothers or the Sandra Bullock movie? They're putting in theaters why why am I not getting that? So you're going to see I think people like Guillermo del Toro who has a movie project. Net flicks. Michael bay whose movies are gigantic transam erred. But but Michael bay is used to getting his transformers movies in four thousand riders on opening weekend in the US, and he's gonna make net looks movies. You know, you don't think Michael Bay's going to ask for the window, and yeah, I do actually. And I think that if it does win. Yes. Maybe he will be satisfied, but it may not win because net flicks. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's not felony aditorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business.

So it kind of got me a little more exciting when that happened. Defenders also, oh yeah, he was still tied into defenders. Supposedly an iron fist season two. They've kind of pulled the stick out of his butt and he's not as up tight Nagano tenor body, the immortal iron fist shut up, man. You're Danny, ran the. I don't know who this moral iron-fist guy is.

I on season one. I liked it a lot. I just hated the way ended, and it was like that it was. It was I'm gonna beat this guy up and all go to jail now come on really.
