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

"mister robot" Discussed on Post Show Recaps
"The other thing I would say is Christie's notes which is reading eating throughout really speak to that. We had really good email from Sarah East about this. And Sarah. I think it's pretty disheartening and upsetting. How some people on read it are are saying this was all just a show? They put on for era. I'm positive SAM 's meal would not do that. It would be so wrong to have a raw and incredibly painful revelation of sexual assault. Turn into just another gotcha moment and yet. There are so many threads of people thinking that what's going on. I had to log off. Read it because it was depressing. It made me feel like victims will always be questioned. It's also absurd to me that they think that Elliot is that good of a liar the same Elliott who could barely say. I'm SEPE OH season episode. Five is that good of an actor. Maybe I'm being too sensitive. I don't know I will say Elliott's a really good liar. We know that he's lied to himself. He's lied to us over. The course of the entire prison reveal but that emotion was real that was not fake demotion and I agree with everything Sarasota about Sam 's meal and why would feel like such violation it would. It would be awful awful. It'd be it'd be awful. There's no way there's no way that that's happening. I love reading I love the Mister robot separated. I don't agree with every theory that's posted there. Clearly some people take it to the nth degree and some of the theories they are completely nail the show so I still find a lot of value in it but I understand the frustration with the constant theorizing housing when it does not feel like something that resonates to you and this one certainly does not for me. No absolutely not. I think what what we get misinformation in this information it's revealed revealed in this episode is is a real turn key moment for our understanding of Elliott Alderson. And I think the sooner that people who are watching this show oh get on board with believing it. I think the more connected. We're going to be the end game of the of the story because I buy I. There's there is not a single bone in my body. That doesn't think that that's exactly what happened. To to Elliott unfortunate. I agree it was twist and by virtue of it being a twist list and even though especially when you re watch it you can see coming down the pike from the beginning of the episode Mister Robot. Every time he shows up you're like oh he's just trying downplay this. Oh He's trying to flecked. Oh he doesn't want this to come up even not just an act. Four just threw out there. Are these moments when Vera says for example. Oh I get it like. She's your Shaman. Mr Robots. Like what what does that mean like. He's angry like he doesn't want that to be a thing that happens. It's possible that Mister robot is the one who you push Krista away to begin with obviously for all of these reasons. I think Taylor makes a really good point Taylor Center severi along email about some interactions that she had I believe in a facebook group asking about. Why wasn't there a trigger warning posted before the episode? Yeah I can understand the sensitivity of that obviously that would have maybe affected the reveal but that is something we see. TV shows now. I don't remember if we've seen scene one mister robot or not but I understand why there would be some. There's a there's a discussion to be had around that around whether or not putting one there. Air Affects the power of the reveal. And if the power of the reveal makes you think a certain type of way because you so linked to Elliott and the reveal comes as such surprise. Maybe you feel more sensitive to abuse victims in your life. I can see the argument either way for including or not including warning like that. I think Taylor wanted to have that discussion Russian and was felt really bad about the treatment. That Taylor received Taylor also pointed out and I think not unfairly that the title card at the end was about domestic violence in that you could easily easily have put up a title card for rain. The rain number is one eight hundred six five six four six seven three. If you know anyone who may need that or if you need it yourself you ever need to talk to anyone in the national sexual assault hotline for the Rape Abuse and incest national network. So I think there could have been there are our discussions to be had about whether or not this show handled all of those aspects correctly or as well as it could have but I think I think the wrong way to look at this is but this was all just a trick that is not something even if the show may doesn't nail it inch perfectly in terms of the handling of the subject material and I'm not criticizing what they did. I think that the show would never violated in that way for sure. Yeah the top episode. This is a tough off episode. It's a heavy episode. This dark show. This is a heavy show. This difficult show to grapple with because the story is it's twisty turny. There's a lot of knots to untie. But this was this was difficult on a gut level. This difficult on that way. Punch you directly in the heart level level. How do you survive a punch to the hardest? That's tough that's really like fear that was more mortal Combat Talon but I think like there there were there. Were some people who wanted to feedback to make us laugh a little bit now. Al had written it instead so stressed as weird things to your brain for a moment before the big reveal. I had the thought that Elliott's third might be Kevin mcallister. The Snowman Dan in my head. He looked like the snowman from the nineties. Horror Movie Jack Brought Amazing Was Jack Frost Ninety s horror movie. Is that Michael Keaton movies. That's what I'm saying. They try to harbor those a family though. It's there's a great episode of the PODCAST. How did this get made? I highly highly recommend you listened especially at this holiday season. Listen to the Jack Frost episode if you can find it in there maybe they'll reposted in their feet or if you have access to some of the stuff that's paywall or if you can find it on youtube or somewhere else like online. That is a hilarious episode. Because that movie is out -rageous the totally the tone of that movie I can understand. Then why Malkhaz it a horror movie. It is a messed up weird movie no doubt about it that said. Can We talk about this Jack Frost. This is Michael Keaton. Yeah Preston and it's a sweet tale about how snow dad is better than no no the line for the uh-huh yeah I understand that. That's what it's about and that's fine. I just I encourage you offer Barath up the IRA DB page for that and look at his face on the cover of the poster. And you tell tell me. That's not a horror movie. I get it I get it I get it I serial killer is a killer I that's for sure it is very very odd I. It's just in general. I can't wrap my head around and I said I know I love the Mister robot celebrated. I cannot wrap my head around and we haven't talked a ton on this podcast. A We talked on the reaction show about how we think at this point. Now the read for the other one is that it's Edward Alderson but everyone keeps talking about an altar third personality Severa Darlene. That how how is that ever going to be possible. Like what how. How could it be? Kevin mcallister how could it be quartey. These people that think it's cordy already like I don't understand in my brain. I don't understand my brain. Can't be wrapped. Wrap it around that that it could be something like quality that it could be something like Kevin. mcallister it's funny. Because I just can't get my head around it no I I am. I'm really here for the idea that Mister robot was messing with Elliott during Darlene. Saying Berra's back in town and you for me like you get all the evidence that you could possibly need for that in this scene where Mr robots once again and lying to Elliot so we know that like even like this most recent mister robot is still willing to lie to Elliott if it means preserving his existence Stinson Elliott's life and being able to continue protecting. Elliot's so is the through line there that Mister robot would have lied to Elliott at that time because he foresaw. I saw that Vera would crack this code or that like there is some kind of danger that threatens to destabilize the existence of Mister robot for Elliott. Yeah yeah may maybe mister robot maybe Elliott recognizing some measure of himself in in Vera Right. Like maybe I mean we know that Elliot does is the deep dives into everybody and when he does a deep dive in Nevada. In the first season doesn't you say like this is one of the worst people I've ever had. So he knows every single detail about Sarah like what. What about various past? Does he know how much of it is resonant with if you can look that far inward or at least the Mister robot piece of him knows that stuff So it wouldn't surprise me wouldn't surprise me. If mister robot senses that Vera would be would lead him directly into the storm that would take him out of the picture forever. Yeah I mean it's possible. It's possible that that would have to be the read for why he would cover that up or just generally that he feels like any interaction. Action with Vera is not going to end. Well that said it's a very dangerous read right because it's very dangerous to say we're going to leave this guy on the board. The the story that we're telling at the beginning of this season is that Elliot is single minded in his purpose. That Elliot is so dedicated to taking down white rose in Cyprus I percents bank and the Dais Group and that Mister robot is committed to that but to a point. Mister robot doesn't want Elliot to charge into that building that e Corp owns Where Freddie Lomax had given the address and Elliott is looking for this character? That isn't there and he ends up in the honeypot. Like mister robot is the one at arguing for caution in these moments if that's mister robot that Elliott needs to also be protected from danger in general from life threatening danger that I'm not sure that mister the robot leaves Vera out there in the ether coming after Elliott. I especially when Vera knows where Elliott lives every moment that Elliott spends at that apartment is a moment where this psycho who has killed someone in your direct orbit and who has kidnapped you before and threatened and killed people around. You may do that again. I just it's harder harder for me to believe that Mister robot actively ignores that when his role is to protect Elliott so I think the door is still open for a third a third version in in terms news of Elliott. But I just don't I don't understand how it could be a fish like so elliott so darlene told the fish. The fish is not even around anymore. Like some of these things. I don't get either jokes. I don't think people ultimately take them all seriously all of these alter theories but I think people are still what I can tell about read. It is it seems it's like a lot of people are still obsessed with this aspect of the show. who was the alter? What about the other one? And I've just sort of lost the plot on that I don't care about it as much anymore. In light light of what we just saw that does re contextualised the whole show in a way that a third character reveal That's what I was expecting. I was expecting something to do that. And now this thing that happened has done that so I'm not still looking around behind every corner for a third personality even though there are things that don't completely add up to me. Even they may add up to you so td. I keep saying it's because this show it could change the it just changed completely. It could change completely again next week. All right well before we start looking ahead to next week. Is there any feedback. You want to get into anything that we left on the tape. Why did Sarah Slot the Nova wrote in? And I said can we talk. About how hilarious bit was when Baron is goons tried to save clamped. Where did he pull that from He? I mean he used A. I think a racial slur modified racial slur to say where he heard from. But it is. I guess that's just New York. It's a it's a melting pot so Dominican guy can go to the Dominican Republic comeback to New York. He can be there with a scenic Jews and pick up some of their lingo and try to say it because it is more appropriate than anything he can think of on his own. We haven't acknowledged young. May as peanuts..

"mister robot" Discussed on Bald Move TV
"I guess dared Argo to the word. Oh, we're going to best to worse. So Fargo is probably the best Fargo's receives into real good. I would go here's, here's my list Fargo. Daredevil true detective mister robot. Westworld. Because I think Fargo is the best because it's not really even bad. There's like a. A minor stumble prod, I way probably overreacted to and also because I had Dade kind of done a similar thing and season Fargo. And I'm like, oh, we'll Faulk if they're going to anyway. But then I think mister robot and Westworld are kind of on the same level of it's not bad. But there was a noticeable kind of a lot of throat clearing and feature fling in the plot. Like, oh boy, I really want to get onto the next chapter, but I'm stuck wrapping up this one. And then I think treaty -tective is if it wasn't a treaty tech thing it would be a fine forgettable thing, and it had some great performances in it. But they're devils season two. I thought was a real drop off in that immortal ninja and season three daredevil so good and sees the one of their devil. So good that it stands out. I felt like Mr. about him, Westworld failed conceptually like they went so in on their concepts that they that they were. In my eyes just complete garbage daredevil had the punisher arc, which was really good. I'm struggling to think of the, the definitive mister robot Westworld to season two. I mean, when I think of the definitive ones it's like Angela and that was not good. I didn't enjoy any of that like defined by its bad arcs to me like the best things about Westworld season to kind of stand alone yet to, you know, samurai world or show gun world. And then you had the kids CEO whatever the. Aca what the main, I've forgotten. All these people's names. What was the catcher to catch? Say it that was a good episode of television in of kind of like a, a mess of season. So bald MU oh, Mark. I should give credit where Credit's due Mark with the four. Parter bald move is experimenting areas its commission movie reviews live instant feedback cetera. What features are you working on for twenty nineteen twenty twenty? You know, the, the yeah, that's why he's asking. They were still noodling on super serious film fest, because we think we've got a thing here. We just don't know what that thing is. There's also something that I'm not prepared to talk about. There's another thing on that prepared to talk about. I think the big thing is what we want to do in twenty nineteen is build a really cool studio that allows us to do the work that we want to do in a nice professional manner, with a nice upgrade to video, and we're going to try to be more successful Invidia lag, without losing anything that we're doing on the podcast. Can we make video version of this with a low time investment that we can throw out on because seems like long form YouTube entertainment is starting to be popular and I see no reason why we can't build something up to be in the neighborhood of a red letter media given a year's worth of time to, to put it together, and polish it up. It's gonna change. It's gonna require changing workflow upgrades in technology. But that's the thing I'm probably most excited about, like, like some of these the what we've called enhanced podcasts on the superstars film reviews like the one we did in fantasy. Like I thought we. I think that's kind of the future of bald move that kind of stuff, not the future..

There is a sort of the opening scene, which we shot all practically, but that existed in the first group because we did have a variety of iterative. My big thing was to I said to them. Look you guys if you're going to do attend little Indians movie that's alternately about people dying in rooms like you have to make the characters interesting and make them puzzles..

So I mean when you starting with such a low bar as a venom like how's it going to get any worse? I mean, that's true. That's the way. Maybe the one instance where the sequel is better. Your first movies Societa? You could actually topping nowhere but up, but Ruben pleasure. Not directing and think about what a crazy anomaly that is like a movie that's really shitty does really well and gets a seek out. And yeah, that has the possibility of being better than the first movie of being a good move won't make as much money. That's true. You go. The other way does the money go if you may get in actually, smart and quality like make more schlock make more sleight back to Matt Miller, not a sequel just getting made under a new director though. So you guys things can be saved at all given a new director and all the feedback and criticism from the first one we got a special effects artists on the movie bird box. Release some images of what the creatures are supposed to look like from the movie, and it looks like a fat headed humanoid type thing. Go check it out. Did you see this rugs? Alex. The best that may be fair babies. The best thing was they didn't show it and I'm still over bird. Look like pretty cool bright the movie with Wilson in the or cop things from Netflix was pretty cool original idea. That's getting us equals. Well, I can't wait to see that. Okay. So bright. I could see right. Getting a sequel they're trying to build this world. There was a lot of stuff. You can not. It was not a good movie. But they were definitely was world building in it intended to watch that on a plane plane. I I've never used a check it out. It's a it's not really great. But it does try to establish like orcs and everything living in the world. What I find even crazier though is apparently bird boxes game sequel. Like, why does that movie need a sequel? I don't think you need a sequel just let go it works as a one and done. Right. Where would you wanna Burbach like you you've already given away the stick? What are you gonna do sequel? That's what they're doing with a quieter place team. So I don't. I mean, they're all going to spoon there is out there. And there's no point then they can't see share you go in. They have to worry about the other guys that crazy people killing. They just kill the insane people. I had to stop myself last episode when you guys were talking about the ranking movies from last year, especially on the Spiderman conversation, we were getting really into debate club territory there I had to laugh because I could sore we were talking about global warming or climate change or something like that. Because it was a heavy topic. I liked it a lot you guys really get into this stuff. And definitely nerds for sure. Already guys laters. That's how we roll over here. L? Yes. We will debate to art wise, Spiderman why everyone can't be Spiderman everyone can't be. Would anyone debate global warming? We actually real gives a fuck listen if it was our job. Argue about global warming vessel. We do we would fucking get into it. We do it, dude. Well, we do it entertaining..

"And then there was a whole thing where apparently the directors guild has only one person can ever be named as the director, which probably explains why you know, how jaw Sweden came in and directed part of Justice league because x night or had part because family tragedy, and so, but then Zach signer is gets has the only credit anyways. I thought that was sort of interesting, and I didn't realize Bryan singer director of this movie. Anyways. It stars Rummy Remmy Malik from a mister robot. As Freddie Mercury. And he's from Bo Jack horsemen true also from Bosak horsemen, he's a wild performance. It's it's really a lot. It's very much one of those the actor is doing the thing where he really tries to be this other person and at times that can be a little much. But honestly, he's really good. I didn't realize how big Freddie mercury's teeth were he had a really pronounce over bite. And so they gave Romy Malik these big teeth and use the whole performance through these ventures. And but they've done a great job with it. I think it's a cool story. It's about a ban that I didn't actually know the full story of just know their music super well, because I'm like obsessed with how good Queen is that they're holistic and style is like one of my favorite musical aesthetics that exists and. Watching them come together kind of bicker. They were always actually a very functional ban. They don't do the thing that so many other bands do where they fight and they'll age most of the, Freddie Mercury was a lot. He had a very complicated life, but the rest of them are pretty straightforward and they disagree about stuff. But then they just rail these great songs they're very collaborative, and it's fun to watch. And then they use the recordings from the actual recordings of the band. They do the whole Live Aid performance that they did. And it's just you basically get to watch Queen this version of Queen perform a lot which is just really fun. So I thought it was a pretty fun movie. And I don't have a super nuanced take on it. I don't know a whole lot about Freddie, Mercury life. But it was fun to watch a bunch of Queen music in the movie. So. Yeah. I wonder I always think of a quote that I saw about Penn and teller, and they're talking about the relationship and talking about how they're like, not close friends, and that's part of what makes them Mabel to just like beyond the road together constantly and challenge the other, and I always wonder about bands, like if if one of the keys to being a successful band is to just see yourselves as just like co workers who collaborate together and not like close friends. Yeah. There is that and it has some cool things to say about collaboration. It's kind of a weird movie because it's both a movie about Queen. And also a specific movie about Freddie, Mercury..

He just got a vibe from the audience, and he did it. He did whatever you never knew where he was going to go.

But he was a gay icon him that movie touches on his homosexuality of a bit. But not that much was there was there a decision. Mid to not go that you know, he did die of aids in nineteen ninety one was kind of glossed over a little bit. What do you said that? There is definitely a story there we could have delved even deeper into. I don't think it's glossed over. I think there's some poignant moments, especially I mean, he talks about not not wanting to be a poster boy for the disease, he wants to make music, and I think that he's a revolutionary because he lived his his most of benthic life little do people know that he did have a six year relationship with a woman who he called the love of his life.

"Listen ground. People are setting the. Sending me the. Synopsis for mister robot actually, the TV show saying that something like this may be happening right now in. In Massachusetts with the homes blowing up because of the gas backup. And this is interesting. Because basically, I remember they take down a corporate data center. And they hack agreed to do it. And if I remember correctly, I haven't seen showing a long time the ones again here, we go with the idea of hacks and whether an last night, it was the solar observatory in sunspot New Mexico, by the way, I just got word via Twitter. According to the news reports, the national solar observatory sunspot, New Mexico is currently empty there is no one on the property. The FBI has taken everything from the property now, they're gone, and the place is abandoned it's still blocked though. No one can get access to it's a something definitely went on. And of course. We were completely baffled as to what happened. And I actually said on the air last night. I was saying that I was looking for a bunch of Paul reveres called program and. And I said, look if you're you're anyone who would know anything we had people calling from New Mexico El Paso near the area where this went down. We were listening intently as to what might have happened in what could have happened at sunspot. And in fact, there were actually Facebook pages and websites and Twitter feeds you're talking about our coverage in our report. Now, we had a number of people giving us, you know, pretty much what they knew. And that was literally nothing they were kind of saying, well, we live in the area. It's curious. What's been going on their black helicopters there? We see the black SUV's the whip Jeeves. So we see off communication. Transportation that his air monitoring the situation, we feel the black helicopters that are. Circling around sunspot are actually doing so to find something or someone we think somebody got away with data or got away with information. We also heard that there was mercury poisoning at it happened there because of course, the telescope is mounted or actually floats on a mercury base that of course, was being kind of pooh-poohed by the locals, they're saying, you know, if they can't contain the mercury then, you know, they have a problem. So there were so many stories from the most mundane to the most outrageous one of are things go on the internet right now that just before the solar observatory was shut down. There were a few things that were leaving the sun a lot of particles. But they said they were UFO's I would say they're particles because we did have an incident. Almost a Carrington. And so a major almost a carrying. There was actually a coronal black hole a coronal hole. Not a black hole. I shouldn't say these people get all worried you say black hole. That means we're all gonna suck in into it and dies. It's not a strangled or anything. It was a criminal black hole. These things happen all the time. Colonel hole is a black area. Where of course, a lot of solar energy and particles are certainly a shot off towards the planet, and it actually put a crack or it actually put a weaker area of the magnetic field. And we had a lot of plasma seep in. There were power failures in Los Angeles, New York in San Francisco reported maybe disruption of cell phones. I don't know if anybody my my Syria actually was slow has been slow the past few days. I haven't been able to figure out why to get connections Syrian data apparently was difficult for my data to work. So have you been having cell phone problems map problems? If you've been having power failures or explosions in your neighborhood, which of course, Carrington events if we ought to carry an event that happened where there were fires were unexplained that are happening, of course, diseases and all kinds of stuff that's happening that it could be because of the sun and. It could be because of a solar flare or CME that is bringing with it the solar particles that can really cause problems here on planet earth people end up getting heart problems, they feel fatigued they feel sick. And that seems to be what's going on. Now. But what was really alarming was when we were bringing this up and talking about the sunspot. Situation. And when we said does anybody know what is happening or what may be happening? Please call us Sam called in. San course is the man who gave us information about scaler weapons and said that he gave us information that everybody was like this doesn't sound right. Doesn't sound like anything. We've heard of. I didn't hear about it. I didn't even know about it. And immediately after we got. The call and the information was out.

The storyline edge on that show, as you said is escalating at a point that you can't keep escalating further. At some point, it has to reach a peak in ending, and I feel like it makes sense for season four to be that climactic ending bull. See, let's get to our last story in that is blunt house would love to raise the dark universe from the grave. Chris, I know you are ironically a fan of the dark universe. Do you want to see this happen? I do actually, yeah. So Jason Blum was on Twitter, answering some random QNA questions from everyone in anyone and someone casually asked him if he would like to take over the dark universe, which as we all know is Universal's instantly failed attempt to start their own marvel cinematic universe using their classic monsters and Jason. Plum responded that, yes, he would now, of course, this isn't an official now. That doesn't mean Jason plumb is a taking it over, but it's not at a line of question. I mean, blunt house has a deal with universal, so something like that could potentially happen. And personally, I if this happened, it would probably be much better than the approach they were originally taking because you know, blame house, they make low budget, horror movies, and that's really the best way to approach these classic monsters. I mean, one of the biggest mistakes universal may but they're gonna versus that they were approaching these films as big action movies, which I don't think anyone, honestly, once I mean, you know, horror as genre is bigger now than it's ever been. People want horror, especially when they think of the classic universal laws, they don't think of them in terms of action heroes. So I, I don't know what is going to have with the. Neighbors. This point, if anything, but when in if universal decides to try it again, they'd be wise to take a lower budget, horror based approach similar to what bloom house does. It will bloom hosts is just so profitable their whole, you know, method of making movies on the cheap using constraints creatively in able to, you know, make huge successes that of a small budget films. We, we saw the success of the shape of water which could have easily been the creature from the black lagoon in the in the dark universe side. I, I would love to see a blunt house, universal monster series. Maybe not dark universe me. They could call it something else. I think we need to, you know, berry pun, intended universe, jacomb character universe or. Jacob, would you like to see bloom house? Do the dark universe? And what is your pitch for bloom of style? Reinterpretation of the universal monsters franchise. Oh, I absolutely want to see this people forget because they're so revered that the originally university wants movies were being movies. They were made on super super-low budgets, ah, shot in on quick schedules, starring non stars, you know they were. They were very much blunt house makes now except being named thirties and forties, though this is actually a perfect fit. And what I would want to see is for blame house to brace the fact that the low budget movies and make these small intense character-driven horror stories. I mean, take Frankenstein Dracula but give it that ruthless edge the best Plum has movies have it. You know, that's the social intensity of get out, give it the lurking dread of paramount actively don't make it's truth or dare. That. Who knows what they're doing. But I guess I, I love the idea of heroes and these movies being professors in who who who poor overbooks filled with dread as opposed to Tom Cruise being an action hero. So I want monsters professors. I want ninety minute run times and I want low budgets, and that's that'd be perfect for me. So you want an exhibition or exhibition with a bunch of. Professors and scientists into a ancient mummy tomb in they get trapped inside and it's told from found footage. Unfounded footage part. You're describing what's a pretty good take on the mummy. I, I'll take that..

"He he, his job was he gave a lot of exposition and so he he would want to know how everything fits together because he is explaining thing. And if I can't explain it, then he's not going to be able to explain that and as much as we were like, whatever. No one really. I mean, the plot has to hold up, but this is the first thing get cut is these long monologues. So whatever he was like, but why this? And Dave and I are like, oh, Wilkes went into a second. We have to go over here now and we're one is it me figure that out. Oh, no, it doesn't. There is that spy plot, right? The plot, they have to do it. And by the way we, we ended up simplifying that in post like we had a more complicated sort of web and what we found when we were like testing the movie was that like no one can. Like if they went with his character would flag, they would flag that the over of information and the fact that there are inconsistencies much more than they were flagging, not having more details about five. Do you think I always wonder this about that situation because I think we instinctively often, no, as writers that it's people are touching the characters, it's their story. Do you think you could have gotten the movie through though if you had simplified the Plotti plot? One hundred percent not. This, we didn't get a lot of notes, but a notes that we would get constantly is we need to understand this. And I mean, I worked in, I worked at mister robot. I worked on complicated shows where we had to plot many things. I had to make graphs and charts of who worked for, who in double cross to that, I sent to the studio, and you know, in then had to make adjustments. So their starts, a lot of that stuff is is not in the movie was played down the movie. But if you know if anyone you know of anyone has like a real question of how like the bad guys spy pot works after seeing this movie. I'm pretty sure I could probably explain it now at this point, and I would imagine having done that work mix the whole richer than it would if you hadn't them like, I think that just just going back to the idea of like the fact that we wrote a spec and then we were really, we, we just retain as at when we started to get like little bits of encouragement like Kay. Cates onboard, and now we have this and we have imagined. And we have Ron Howard wherever you know it when you get those little things that kind of like it bolstered our confidence to be able to say no to these sort of half opportunities like the opportunity to option it to a studio who wasn't gonna, make it the summer, but totally wanted to next summer. Like things that I think years before we have been like, oh my God, we sold the script grave and just being like, no, no, no, that doesn't sound quite right..
