"We believe there in actual family right like that's a reveal later on that. None of them are family. They were all undercover. My own no. No really i never believed they were an actual family. I mean there was the line in endgame when natasha and hawkeye go to visit red skull and red skull goes welcome. Natasha daughter of ivan and that makes her a believer. Hawkeye's lake. you're just going to believe him because he knows your father's name and sasha says i didn't know my father's name so you would remember that you've seen it one hundred times i saw so i'm like okay. This is still a family. So i'm like wow. They're killing the mom early because pain only makes you stronger so this is the pain. That's gonna shape black widow. Yes certainly by disney movie logic you take away parental figure. It's part of the journey of coming to age. I did wonder david harbour out there with a gun. I thought maybe they were leaving him behind. I had seen scenes of a prison break in the trailer. I thought maybe he'd be caught. I didn't expect rachel weisz to get shot right here. In the beginning unfortunately no thought of her dying because again of the trailers red guardian alexi had been staying behind to shoot at the shield agents and he super runs and catches the wing and then they take off. And i'm like did he stay on the wing the whole time that they flew to cuba from ohio. It's a short flight. He climbed in at some point when they showed the plane landing. He's not on it but did he just let go when they got low enough. I was really wondering about that. I don't know if that plane would've made it to cuba on one tank. Maybe they had to land at some point and refueling. He climbed in. I feel like if they landed again in the state. Shield of ben on them. Though but again. I couldn't rectify what i had already half remembered about natasha's past which in my mind was i'm not wrong right. She was wearing tutus and pirouettes and then she was like picking up guns. It was some kind of ballet school slash assassin class and we see that in the opening credits here. We're going to see of red room training which does include ballet right. But she's already had that and now she's on a mission. And i guess the point of the mom being injured at this moment is she's going to have to take the wheel they're acting like. This is the first moment that natasha has had to take control of the situation. Maybe i'll be honest. I find it hard throughout this movie to see the importance of natasha romanoff. I really feel like every other character is much more inviting than she is they undermine or so much towards the end like got really upset but i totally agree with stuart like if this is again a eulogy for black widow like remember this character. There's why she's great. They undermine her over and over throughout this film. I'll agree but i don't think this scene is one here. It showing her as being defiant and strong and trying to protect her sister even though she knows. They aren't real sisters when she sees little elaina about to be taken and knows what you lane is going to be subjected to. She tries to protect her sister. It's setting up that theme that's going to persist throughout the movie. Is the sisterhood of the traveling stinger. The point is they get back to a communist friendly country and they meet drake off and drake off. Is you know you can tell right away. This is a guy that doesn't respect women. He's like drug the children and literally their thrown in moved around in garbage dumpsters and he was only talking to the men about how it win. He gets the disc back. although we'll find out he ends up betraying alexi as well. He's really not loyal to anyone or anything alexis complaining. I mean the two men hug here but alexis complaining because yes why would you ever super soldier and make him take an office job for three years. Yeah seems like a strange use of his powers but just because it makes him more fun character to reunite with later again. He will be a standout until we see him again. My audience was kind of not feeling it for the next half hour. Where with scarlet. And i'm feeling bad. They definitely saddle her with a lot of guilt. She will be made to feel guilty about not staying with the elena and she will be made guilty about some assassination later. That wasn't ever referenced before it was. Oh yeah it's all connected all planned out. We can get when we get there but it just in general. I feel the character that i used to love. That was a real spark of energy has become this. Glum remorseful. not fun to follow background character. i'm excited to see it because it's black widow. I can't say i'm necessarily to into the teenage years tasha but that's just in the prologue once the opening credits start. We do get that haunting. Rendition of smells like teen spirit. And i really do just love this rendition of the song. If there's been stuck in my head for the days. Since i've seen this that probably shouldn't work. Those lyrics are pretty nonsensical but with the visuals of the women in the dumpsters and inserts of dray cough saying to kill the weak ones and the ballet dancing and things it really does create a somber mood mournful for these black widows which could lead right into natasha's state of mind when this starts avengers broken up and she's on the run. Of course one of the people. I feel bad for in. This movie is william hurt. I mean i knew he was going to be in this movie. We've he was a brief glimpse in a trailer and in the trailer. He looked younger and everybody was thinking. It was a d aged william hurt. This is going to be some kind of early. Flashback with black widow and general. Ross and no william hurt is literally here to be ineffective for a couple of scenes. I mean this is seems like a long way from the actor who to give speeches about the importance of his work during a history of violence. And look i want marvel movies to be different and unique and each want. Go off and explore. Its own thing. But i still want some cool spy action type stuff going on and the fact that natasha just gets away from general ross here by taking pursuit changing her clothes and just walking out of a bathroom quitting quitting. This is a movie about someone quitting and going to a trailer. Oh this is fun. This is exactly what i wanted to do. Go to norway and sit in a trailer and watch moon raker. The moon rakers actually the worst part of that having seen that film. I wouldn't mind norway. Yeah the fact that. I saw all those other hints that they set up at the beginning with the crab walk. I'm like moon raker. Referencing the worst. James bond film. Oh no this is bad. They're going to have some call back to this. Let's the fun one you know. Maybe the worst one arguing the craziest one but again nothing. She's imagining all the fun. She should be having in her own movie while she sits in a trailer. Whose generator blows out. She's end the dark. And i just feel like that is scarlet in this whole movie in capsulated. Why did they have nothing better for her to do than to hide in the dark yet. They deliberately have a conversation like she's got some friends there. That's actually doing everything for getting everything. Like they have to talk about the septic tank. That's gonna clean out. Friend is mason tinkerer junior from the comics. Yeah rick mason. Nobody in the comics like just some random shield guy. I think his dad's more famous than him is. Dad is more famous but his dad. At least the character of the tinkerer named mason was in spiderman homecoming. So is this the son of one of michael keaton henchman. Yes stewart. Remember the tinkerer in that. I don't i don't remember any character named tinkerer. I barely remember that michael. Keaton had inch men and this actor. I only know for his bit. Part in the handmaid's tale. They seem to imply that he has had a romance with natasha. At some point or they have some kind of half flirtation. I take it as he is so friend. Zoned so blue baltin. Yeah he clearly wanted more than she does but again. What does scarlet even one in this. But he really is just a functional character he will get her choppers and jets but he will never participate in the story line so when we talk about who he becomes in the next marvel movie. I won't even remember him in this one. Well this one he's q. That's what i kept referring to him as he doesn't have cool gadgets but at least he's going to give you supplies bad trailers and yeah. What was the name. She was going to have to go by. It was something fanny longbottom. There we go. Yeah yeah no. He's going to go pick up her male and budapest and deliver it to her a real errand. Boy here yes. That is the one thing that he has done to help the plot. If you're in a safe house hiding how much mail do you get safehouse. Mail your stock..

"Spectacle of the big screen. Variety has also been in great supply recently. We'll get to several new releases this week. Well several being four steven soderbergh's latest the crime drama. No sudden move. That came to hbo. Max last week. Don cheadle the neo del toro and a bunch of other great actors in that one also summer of soul from first time. Director quests love came to theaters into hulu that concert doc about a nineteen sixty nine harlem concert series that featured performances by nina simone stevie wonder sly and the family stone and many more all of those having never been seen since nineteen sixty nine our review of that one could just be a ranking of our top five favorite moments. We might. We might even do that. Josh that would probably get us through the first half hour of the movie. I think we can pick five from that. Yeah you also caught up with zola which stars riley keough a wild road trip tale inspired at least in part by an infamous twitter thread. I can't wait for you to unpack that and more later in the show. But i the is finally back on a big screen near you after a handful of disney plus streaming series phase for kicks off with the scarlett johansson starring feature black widow. Fine an enter.

"Well like i mentioned earlier there already kind of treading to close to that other franchise. I mean like fina corp is basically becoming umbrella corporation. They can't mix those two genres without people asking questions. Keep in mind by this point resident. Evil movies are over. And they're talking about rebooting it. But i think that this was supposed to fill in that gap. I think this was supposed to be okay. Now that we're done with that series. Everyone come over here. It's confusing to have the same jargon. What i liked. The only thing that i really felt was novel about that first movie was we had pheno. Trans inventing a cure and all of that is now getting lost. Like i feel like the potential of understanding that zombies can be controlled with medicine has not fulfilled. Its purpose here when it suddenly becomes about everyone. Supposedly everyone is microchips and can be killed by the army and that's going to be a new ticking clock and twenty four hours the dead and like you guys kind of brought up earlier. It's almost a who cares situation. I know it's you know one point five million people but this is also a universe where had multiple zombie outbreaks at some point. The general public is going to be like sick and tired of it. And it's going to be. I mean just look at real world like look how fast the majority of americans got over the idea of covert after just three months. It's like well. Yeah if we just kinda you know do what we're supposed to do. We can get over this quicker but in a movie universe. I can see how people be like you know what if it's just one and a half million people to end this for once and for all i say do it. Yeah i feel like they needed to draw the line. More directly that the government was choosing who lives in dies and we're saying that undesirable people people don't like maybe for their political stance. You know like. I name it. Give me a. We're going to have them chipped and killed and that's how we execute justice in this post zombie world. It's just so confusing to me because chipped the bitten so because theoretically that's all that chip is therefore is to help you not zombie out if you're bitten if only one point five million of bend administered. They're obviously keeping it to a small sample. It's not gonna stop zombie outbreaks. 'cause you're killing those who are in remission from zombie ism right. So what is the point of killing one point. Five million people. The only way. I could go with this as he's a madman. Who wants to be a mass murderer but that doesn't make any sense either. Yeah i feel like we want to be able to understand general allstate's plot and it just remained garbled it's again i like your expression hand way adjusted and it's like yeah you get it right. It's bad it's the military it's conspiracy like whatever like we're not gonna get into that you know these are the bad guys chases the good guy. We now have to have him lead team. He's the expert into breaking into. East mission oregon. Now he will lead this whistle blower to a bank of servers where this command is going to be given. And he's got to get there in time to stop afterlife and he's going to be bringing on friends because again. It's more fun when you have colorful types with homemade weapons tagging along like garth o'toole we're either. Have you guys confused by the introduction of his girlfriend. Did you think that was supposed to be the same character from the last movie. Yes yes i wondered. I liked crystal last movie. It seemed like they were up last movie. This person is asked. Aren't you as girlfriend. And she says often on. I'm like did. She drastically changed her look. I had to look like that's not the same actress. What is going on and i'm disappointed. It's not crystal coming back. Yeah yeah tell many. Look the same in this and again. She kind of looks like jordan to who doesn't look like herself anymore. Because of all the experimentation it just identification in general is a general problem for me throughout this movie. I don't get the conspiracies. I don't understand in differentiate the characters. It's really confusing. Help me know why garth is here. Is he a character from the games. Yes i think But not looking. I'm finding no reference to him. But i'm like of course he is. That's why you would have them. And he's actually introduced playing dead rising at his house so it's a kind of meta joke here that he already knows how to do this because he's been playing these capcom zomba game and it's alleged that they have a. He has this history with chase where he owes them a bunch of weapon but chases a character from the game so no and the confusing thing is here is again. The reason that he's introduced to us in the movie is so they can get armed up and go into this quarantine zone but that is pointless. Because they're immediately disarmed wants to get in so there really is no reason for this character. Yeah i he creates attention with the whistle blower. He and hancock will be having a trading a back and forth sort of venomous relationship. He keeps reminding us why. We shouldn't like this guy that supposedly going to turn off the afterlife program. I think it just kinda plays to. I mean if. I'm being charitable at plays that like in this world. This has been going on so long that there's people who you know are on the outside who have knowledge of how this thing played out and can help you out if you're going into the quarantine zone as it has been two years so i mean. Think about it after two years. It's kinda just commonplace. You don't go over there but if you need to there's guys that can help you out. Now here's the thing. I like the idea of going through zombie city and the fact that chases the guy because he's been reporting there for two years that works for me. Bring your friends along. Have them be differentiated as possible. Help me out with that. But you know the movie last week also had someone on the outside. It was jordan who is reporting. I find it very irritating. Every time we cut outside of this city. And have to hang out with jill jessica harman's character where she's running around trying to. I don't know like there's this guy named smith that's trying to shoot them and she's running from him and she's approaching the ceo of fina trends and then getting information from her guy. It's all of that. Cut all that stuff. This movie is half an hour shorter than one last week. But i feel like because it's so densely plotted it actually plays longer like it took me longer to get through this movie than watched. Yeah i just all of the scenes of allstate. You guys have me calling him that. Now when i it's fun and susan and get on the roof really feel expository and yet not clear like if you're going to have exposition scenes at least say something she talks about. She's worried about her company because again like we joked about. He's killing everybody with her product and she loves her company. But you're not even teasing the upcoming reveal. Yeah and again she. Has this henchman. That standing there and hill eventually go and run and tell the tv producer. Who's talking to her baugh again. Too many characters who cares about any of this stuff. We need to stay focused on a twenty four hour mission through a zombie city with chase leading people through underground tunnels and presumably areas. Right and we. We haven't early stated what their mission is like. They're going into the quarantine zone to to infiltrate a server farm. So they can upload malware only the whistle blower really knows how to work it but for reasons. Chase's girlfriend is also a hacker. And she's gonna do something to the system as well like it's it's a. It's a strange division of work in that. The one guy that understands afterlife is not really going to be the one to stop it. He's not an it. He has to call somebody. Couldn't you just send an email. That says we have a problem with your order. Open this invoice. Who why would you put the banks inside surrounded by zombies. Anyway i guess it prevents other people from getting to it. But it also means you yourself can't really control what's happening but again the whole lab the whole experimentation pheno trans whole reason for existing is also in the same building as the server farm so it seems like they've really chosen a bad location to be doing life saving work yes. Some bad corporate decisions have been made. I could draw a line if they were doing experiments there and it's surrounded by zombies. Couldn't the zombie outbreak in that city. Have taken place because abilities aim like they didn't mean to surround it was on bees. I but wouldn't at some point. Billy's ain't gonna chopper and then go to a different lab. One where he's not constantly in threat of being attack..

A Generation of Germans Give 'Final Account' of Living Through Nazi Germany
"Jump into the movie reviews and talk about final accounts. A documentary filmmaker spends a decade interviewing the surviving Germans who were involved in the Third Reich when they were younger. Focus Features and participant present on unprecedented documentary event For the first time on record, The Children of Nazi Germany give their final account in what may well be the last testimony. Of its kind. Now I'm gonna warn you. It's a documentary. So you know it's not an action movie, and it also is almost completely in German. Because It's a German guy interviewing Germans. So everybody speaks German. So yes, you're gonna have to read Subtitles Sorry, folks. But this is a fascinating movie because It interviews people who were Children when the Nazis essentially came to power. I mean, maybe they were teenagers. And here you've got to realize people in America. You have no idea of the difference between living as a teenager in America Now versus living as a teenager. In Germany Post World War One Things were very, very different. It was the old world, You know they didn't have any sort of TV or Internet, So I think the most Telling thing about this is it shows some footage from back then some film footage And now we've been so used to knowing that the Nazis were a horrible party and the symbols of the Nazis are extremely jarring to suddenly just see show up. That wasn't the case 100 years ago. You know, you started seeing the Nancy flag back then in Germany, and that was just another political party. It was not a symbol of horror. That it is today

And i'm glad it's your job not mine in under five seconds in a minute. What is revenge of the sixth about. Yeah okay so. This is definitely going to be breezy synopsis. But basically revenge takes place three years after the events of the clone. Wars advocate has been about his mission. People don't know these mary to pad may and one of the first things i ask him to do is to rescue the chancellor been given power over the senate and therefore the republic and he's been kidnapped and so then Anikin has to go and rescue him and during that same time one is on a different mission against general grievous. But it's during this time. That anna can become very close to senator pal patine before we eventually realized that he is the sieff lord that has been the puppet master behind all the events that led up to this moment as he wants to take control over the republic and turned it into what will eventually become the empire. During this time. There are various players. Folks are beginning to suspect palpitations motives and because of it. They ask anikin kim to spy on him but they do this. They tell him. They're not gonna make magenta jedi master.

How Jenny Lorenzo Became the Internets Favorite Cuban Abuela
"Jenny. I'm almost have to admit not accustomed to seeing you as jenny. nobody else. Is that what you look like. I want to take a listen to the first video that you ever did. Hold up today. Go to pick up one three gilead of better sex for three going on meeting me gomez day metal supplement. Okay iressa on. And off for the love of god. So here's what's interesting. It's the first video that willa was ever featured in for buzzfeed but she insisted prior channel of mine called aggressive comex and a boiler was first introduced as a superhero Because this was a channel that was predominantly white male audience. I talked about video games and comic books and movies. Sifi strictly me being nerd and then at some point i did a movie review of the film kick ass and me and my writing partner for the show was to the cuban well because he knew that i kind of already did that sort of thing and so it was the same terrible wig that you do see in that buzzfeed video i think i through like baby powder on it to make gray and she had like this painted red mask over her eyes with like a fly swatter as were weapon and then eventually it made no sense for the channel. But you can tell that. I yearned to make this sort of content. It is interesting that something that is as big as a bulla takes that many iterations to get there like. I think there's a lesson in there for any creative. That is not necessarily that. The opening gambit is where you land now never being a nerd is as much a part of your identity and culture as being cuban. It seems did you see characters on tv or in media. Who has a latino nerd you identified with not really wasn't until recently that i started seeing that representation especially in a show like no spooky because these are a bunch of latino gods that are into the macab and they're a bunch of nerds and outsiders because that's a big part of me to what most approximated your own experience i would say. A lot of that was in black television. You see urkel you see. Carlton banks a lot of these like nerdy people of color on tv. Maybe sometimes says from that seventies show me. He had like a bit of a nerdy flair to him. I feel like latinos on tina's specifically were usually depicted as like very sensual loud colorful. You know things sofia vergara in modern family that was the typical depiction of what was and. So that's why. I had a hard time in the audition room. I didn't fit any mold of what especially miami casting paint a picture for me of what auditioning in miami looked like. It was a nightmare for me. I would show up and for those who don't know me. I'm like five feet pasty skinny little shits and he but then i have this like deep voice. No one knows what to do with me. So then i shopped to these auditions and they were usually little late sorta lottery or like colgate but then i would be up against women my age but they looked like supermodels and then there was me so then i just never felt like. I was sexy in us to sell toothpaste. I remember my very very first universal casting audition. It was for the florida lottery. And i had to be like this sexy. You're even an award. These like plastic clear stripper heels. I don't know. I don't know what i was thinking but i was nineteen years old. The silver lining of this terrible experience is that emotive issue to become a creator. I was tired of this. I was so tired. And then i did a couple extra work. Gigs was extra on. Burn notice and dexter. And guess what. I was scantily clad and tacky his hell because that's what they thought of people in miami. All of these shows always depicted people from miami in the same way and it always took place in south beaten always involve drugs and sex and violence. Which is another reason why. I'm working so hard today. To eventually sollers show. That depicts miami in a more authentic way so yeah it pushed me to go to school and learn how to do everything else on my own.
Movie Review: 'Sound of Metal'
"Of Metal recently came out on Amazon Prime and the movie follows a heavy metal drummer played by Reza Med, who begins to lose his hearing. Your hearing is deteriorating rapidly. We'll come back to Lin Liu. We just keep going. Okay? No blue. No play tomorrow. See what it's like. Okay, I'm gonna be like a click track. You complain to me. Don't understand your fast responsibility. Something here. I can't hear you. You understand me? I can't adapt. Jacqueline. What did you think of the sound of metal? While the sound of metal is another film that was part of this sort of strange festival season of last year, and I actually got to catch it at the Toronto Film Festival two years ago, I guess now, but now it's coming out on Amazon. It started drizzling mezuzah drummer losing his hearing, and what's really interesting about this film is this is not somebody who had this Big aspirations in life. This was a man who just wanted to be a drummer in a band and this disability coming upon him late in life really changes everything around him. It changes his relationships. It changes what he may be wants to do with the rest of his life and In the center of it. What's interesting is his willfulness. I will say for how he doesn't want to face the reality of what is happening to him and how he looks to sort of bargain and beg his way into a different situation. And it isn't until he comes across an advisor at a camp that he goes to learn American sign language and sort of Learned how to live this new existence with a disability where he really sort of embrace is who he is. It has some really interesting sound cues in it. I think it is my Hands down pick for best sound this year because of the way they use it in the storytelling just sort of tell the story of his diminished hearing and also essentially how he's listening in and out of his life and Really incredible performance by Rizal Med. Also Olivia Cooke and Paul racy who's actually a coda. He is the child of death or hearing impaired parents. And he knows American sign language a character actor from several years and he is getting a ton of praise for his performance in this one, which I'm so happy to see. Sort of like a journeymen have his His moment. It harkens me back to sort of Robert Forester with Jackie Brown and sort of that, So it's a really incredible thing. And what are we hearing about resume that's performance. Yeah, and risen mad. They're definitely talking best actor for him. He recently came out on the cover. I think it was ah, variety of Hollywood reporter where he was saying, You know, he's had to play these roles that he didn't want to do any more, He said. I'm done playing terrorists. I want Have an opportunity to have three dimensional characters and so to see a South Asian British person played this role where that is a part of the character but all of the character and seeing him Really struggle with the realities of this disability is really incredible and visceral is one of the best male performances of this year. It is just a shame that it goes. It begins so many performances that are going to be hard to be most particularly Chadwick Boseman and lead actor performance of Murray's black bottom, but I think he's going to give him a run for his money, even in a posthumous awards campaign. We
The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.
News of the World Movie review
"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative. But it's safe to say that's not what's most compelling about news of the world at least right now michael and i were discussing some of the titles for possible review on the show you lean toward news of the world saying this it would feed naturally into talking about how we get our news and what the news has been lately having now seen it. I'm pretty sure. I know what you're getting at but i'd love to have you explain and i'm eager to hear if you think this topicality is to the movies credit or to its detriment. Well you know when you talk about any movie or anything that's worth talking about in the culture yet. You have to respond to the times. You're living in doesn't mean that everything gets bent toward particular historical malay. Were in right now. I mean it's it's it's just sort of stunning. How distracting everything in the world in our country least is is crowding out so much of our head space for anything else and it's I think i think what's going on in news of the world at least As greengrass co wrote and directed it is you. Have you have a film. that's speaking i think. Directly although not too bluntly a to certain strains in the american spirit and the american sort of rugged individualism western ethos have a guy like Tom hanks character. Kid who's a civil war veteran The film takes place right around. The same time is john. Ford's the searchers it's It's texas in eighteen seventy. The searches was two years earlier. And you have a very similar plot line right you have essentially if you want to boil it down to the utter simplicity. Have you have an anglo older white male who wants to you. Know who ends up Rescuing and saving i guess with quotes around it A young girl from the clutches or the life. she's known a living amongst the native american tribes comanche searchers. And the kiawah here in this story
Wonder Woman 1984 movie review: Patty Jenkinss sincere sequel soars despite its flaws
"I'm so glad you can be here with us to talk about wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four now. To set up the plot of this movie as best i understood. It wonder woman nineteen eighty-four revolves around magic rock. That grants wishes pedro. Pascal plays maxwell lord huckster who wants of course ultimate power over the universe. Kristen wig play nerdy anthropologist Who will later transform sort of. She's all that style into the frightening nemesis cheetah. And if you're wondering how. Chris pine is in this movie considering how wonder woman ended. Just do not worry about it because it will become a somewhat clear. Glenn we were all i think. Fans of the twenty seventeen wonder woman. What did you think of this. Well i think this is It's bright it's entertaining. It was frequently funny. Which i enjoyed. It can't help but lack the kind of simple story power narrative power of that twenty seventeen film because that was our first real glimpse of the character was an origin story and the villain was so unambiguously evil. The kaiser chemical weapons the god of war. What i like about this film. Is that the tone in the first half. Seems like a direct image to the nineteen seventy richard. Donner superman at some people. Have pointed out and i'm all for that but this had its own story to tell it does lose. Its way about halfway because that's when some pretty dark and muddy. cgi takes over. Which i couldn't really get over because this film has been sitting on the shelf for while had lots and lots of time. And the fact that the siege. I still look so weightless in this kind of surprise me and look the superhero film has been around for over half a century now and we still haven't learned it's important lesson which is that more is less one villains enough people if you know what you're doing pick one and stick with it. I mean these characters work when they're coming from a place of moral clarity and they're standing against someone of equal and opposite. You know immoral or amoral clarity. Now you can say the two villains who worked in batman returns because those villains if you're or call were the penguin and cat woman. They already had a cultural footprint. They were firmly planted in the wider culture. You just can't say the same thing about the cheetah and maxwell lord they just don't have that kind of i hate this word. Stickiness essential stickiness. I do have a theory. Why this movie was so light on. Big action set pieces. I think has to do with essential makeup of the character. I'll get to that later. But look all you gotta know is i grew up with lynda carter wonder woman and the super friends and something happened at the one hour and ten minute mark and assume that may be stand up off mme couch and

"Right. And then he gets to move on. And that's never gonna get explained. Is it a problem? Honestly. No. And I'll tell you why I'm having fun. If I enjoy the movie, I can go with it. You know, we always talk about we said this million times in the show if you sandbox up and you play within your sandbox rules. I'll go along with AB set something up I'm game to go along. So they set this whole thing up. I'm game to go along the fact that they don't explain it is kind of part of the fun of it. You can actually have a lot of. Discussions on what it actually means. You actually get deep dive into that. If you really wanted to. But the fact of the matter is is the consider the movie that makes everything else happened. And I am absolutely fine. Not knowing to this day. I never even questioned it really because it's just what the movie is about to get to the ending of this movie of he's finally become a good person. So no, I'm fine. It didn't bother me when I first saw this movie. But I thought for sure that it was somewhere in the movie like I ended up with a fan theory that I will tell you at the end of this movie. By this time loop happened. And why the time loop ended? I can't wait. But I'll tell you my favorite theory that I read on Reddit is pucks to twenty Phil controls the time loop. He's the seer of seers and the prognosticator of prognosticators, and he was deeply offended when Connors called him a large squirrel, predicting the weather. That's what I was worried about that someone would say that. I am. So glad this fill is in about ground hawkers like offended, the giant squirrel, and he is a curse upon you. And you know, instead of six more weeks of winter you're gonna have to repeat this. You're right rector something beautiful about just the simplicity. It's no that's this universe. It's again, magical realism the conceit of this film. It's not too convoluted. And it's just it's the one thing you gotta give it. Okay. I'll give it's never bothered me. I wonder if people get upset that there's no explanation. We love to have gone YouTube, the ending of every conceivable movie explained because we have to understand everything and dissect it, no it's just a fantasy. It's a fable. It's a metaphor. Yeah. Never bothered me. And but I was always theorizing. I always wondered why it wasn't until that two thousand six DVD came out, and I found out it was supposed to be this voodoo spell that. I was like, okay. But they talked about different ways of introducing a method as to why this is happening. It would be hokey to see some woman standing over, you know, Bubba bowl, toil and trouble and things it keeps the movie classy that it doesn't explain it. You know, I have another movie that has something similar, right? You have the movie liar liar with Jim Carey, I was going to bring up the whole conceit is the kid makes birthday wish. And the wish comes true, and he has to not lie. And while that's the casino that movie, and you do go that because hilarity ensues allegedly I enjoyed it. When I watched it in the theater, and I've seen it quite a few times since again, not in like twenty say for our Jim Carey retrospective. We'll save it. But the conceit there you see it happen. And the one thing about that MOU. That doesn't really work for me is the why wouldn't have been great for that movie. If it didn't really explain it. It's just that the kid is disappointed in the next day. He can't lie might have been a better way to go. This is a good example of how you can actually not have to explain it. And it could still work out because you just go with it. I'm okay with the making a birthday wish comes true the same way. I'm ok with there being a contract that you become Santa Claus. When you kill the previous Santa Claus the same way. There are so many movies where they make a wish a wishing. Well and throw the coin..

"And George Romero's night of the living dead if you haven't checked it out, and you enjoy those movies, I listed you probably want to give the void a chance. So it gives me great pleasure to welcome to the show. Steven Kazansky, Ernie at you. All right. So you've directed and worked on makeup effects for number of horror movies where you were horror fan growing up funny. When I was a kid, I was actually terrified of horror movies. I could not handle them until I think it was around like twelve thirteen maybe I rented army darkness and that ended up being my. A gateway movie into the John Reid. And then after that, it was all downhill, I just started obsessively consuming. Every franchise I'm sure as all horror fans did. And so yeah, I really enjoy the John Ryan it definitely speaks to me creatively. As far as make facts, and directing and the more like fantastical elements of horror like to create on my own. So yeah, I I love horror, but what were some of your favorite franchises? I mean that seems to shift from year to year as a I mean, I used to be evil dead used to be my thing, and then kind of dipped into phantasm and hell raiser. I mean, I really like most of them. There isn't really one that. I like have a serious this like for recently, I took long enough, but I finally got into Friday the thirteenth mainly because of the Friday the thirteenth game that came out the on games like they gave me an excuse to. Kinda revisit that franchise and develop a new appreciation for it. So those more of a Freddie guy Jason X genius or ridiculous. I guess that depends on what kind of mood I'm in because some days, I love that movie. And then other days, I'm like, I can't even I can't even handle this thing. It's definitely has. It has moments that are too stupid like to engage in at all like, I don't even wanna start like dissecting that film. But it somedays it's a lot of fun. And then some days, it's the most annoying thing I've ever seen. So I think yeah. Since I haven't watched it awhile. I'm gonna say it's genius. But I've met if I watched tomorrow, I'd be like, oh, this movie sucks. But I love that trailer when you were getting into word, then you said army darkness, and that came out the same time the first leprechaun film did. So I imagine you were getting into horror around the time the leprechaun films were in their heyday. Did you see them back? Then like I had seen them at friends houses. Like, you know, the typical. Like kid situation, where your friends parents rent a whole bunch of movies, and you like kinda marathon them and the sleep. So like I had seen. I had seen one in seem to and I ended up skipping right to three when I was younger and really enjoyed that one Vegas. One was a lot of fun. And then like they had kind of just mixed into the pot with every other franchise growing up. So as I said, it wasn't necessarily my number one. But it was definitely like part of the lexicon of my like horror consumption. So how did you go from horror fan into getting into makeup effects when I saw army darkness? My parents bought me the VHS for Christmas. And it was one of those anchor-baby that had bonus features at the end, which at the time was unheard of. And I remember watching the movie and then watching pass the credit into this making dot and in its there's Ma. Taj of guys working at can't be affects pulling creatures, and I remember seeing that in like kind of like the curtain on the the magic of filmmaking had been lifted and I saw like would it really was. And I remember being so excited. Oh, it's just like a bunch of like Gerda dudes listening to meddle with iron maiden shirts. Like just goofing around making monsters like seems like a pretty good time 'cause up to that point. You know, like the kid you think like making movies is such an inaccessible thing..

"Well, listening to it and just really trying to perfect the accent. What kind of direction for the character did a Stephen Kostanic, you give you onset when you were performing. He would just give me his Hugh. And now of what he would like to see, and then we would collaborate back and forms and just go out to the with the kid who wanted to do and in that same, and it was a lot of fun to play around with the coca for show. But yes, easing was like to work with easy either unbelievable to when you read the script before filming. What were your initial reactions to it you intimidated by the effects or excited? I wish you excited just to just get the ball and was a bit of process before we started filming just just because it was a bit of a weight. So I was once I had the script. I was just waiting to go and get into what caused the delay full is just because it was doing South Africa that that it was been of late from here to there. And and that kind of thing and what was your experience like in Cape Town. It was amazing. Just the the scenery and the people like key point and seeing all the difference. I think sites that you can do that was awesome actually went down with my mum about a week and a half before just to go some do sightseeing making sure that I that. I'm ready to give my best performance that I can that kind of thing. And so that was a lot of fun definitely helped ease into it for sure how long were you in South Africa for this film, six weeks? Obviously one of the big things about this. Character is the look and you had some great prosthetics in it. What was the makeup regimen? Like, it was pretty easy. Once we got the ball and to put the plastic on, and yeah, it was just like a skullcap ahead piece. And then just a face and. In the lips. And so one and the teeth and everything like that. But it was over a one-two wonderful experience to work with with clam, Nick wind. Yeah, they will just made into work with the show one of the things work Davis always said about the role which I found amusing was the best part of the costume. Where the shoes he said, they were the most comfortable shoes he'd had in a movie and insisted on having the same ones film after film where you as lucky with the shoes in this one may definitely definitely found. A comfy pair a time funding that concierge town and flat tops for the most of doing a full body shot than I would put the the heels on that kind of thing. But the she shoes I found at the end of it issue were you a horror movie fan? I know you also did some work with cult of Truckee last year. Actually, I am. Actually scared of a horror movies, and so I don't like going watching them whatnot because I just get way too scared and and whatnot. But I love acting in the shoot what seemed the this movie? Do you think would have scared you the most if you were just a viewer of it? I think one of the kills should is that really stand out to me. And actually haven't seen the movie at some super excited to see it. But each individual kill is so unique, and it was just so fun to be opponent. Did you have one that was your favorite to film? I did. Yes. I I don't know if I can talk about it comes out. But I believe it was it was mantis kill that was one that really stood out to me was that the sprinklers. Yeah. That one. What about the scene where you end this is in the trailer where there's so many of your character the small lilliputian leprechaun's running around. How was that experience to kind of interact with yourself while it actually on the last day, filming why did all those little hint of the mini me's? That was a lot of fun to do. It was pretty cool to do one thing..

"Is step two. But I wish he'd seen something crazier if you touch a multiple personality disorder. What do you? You see I would've loved to have seen something truly insane. I thought we were going to get that he'd have yet like twenty four visions or something that would have been great. But no, he does just see the brick factory. And. Yeah, the man in the chair tells them. All right. You got to go the other way and get there what I'm more confused about his wear Hedwig is going if he is in fact, going to the triangulating place across town where all the kidnappings happen is Hedwig actually going to do something bad like when he finally gets there. It's an underground parking structure full of homeless people is he there to kill them. I just couldn't quite figure out. He ends up taking off his tracksuit and roaring and my God. The beast has a voice now that was a questionable choice. He talked last time when he talked to Casey saying how she's been hurt. He talks a lot more here though. I notice a lot more modulation in that voice now. Yeah. It felt wrong or here. I mean. We learned that the personality is based on a lion. I'm like now thinking thunder cats as he's talking which is hard for me to be like. So is this your impersonation of what a lion would sound? Like a cartoon would I found confusing is in split. It seem like he went to the place where he thought his dad had died and that brought out the beast that was the area. I'd never got the impression he was like the whole can you just talk out anywhere. But now he just Tokes out into the beast around some homeless people. Did he eat them? I thought he ate them. I don't know why he didn't eat the cheerleaders. I yeah. Just talk out in front of them and eat the cheerleaders. That's why he kidnapped them. No. I thought he was making a declaration of IMU meaning ic- broken people that society has cast aside. And I am your champion and the problem with that is that's something he needs to learn from glass, he wouldn't have had that awareness of his potential as a vigilante in this moment at this time. I think that it would have been more typical to. I see him doing this to the cheerleaders and David Dunn arrives just in the nicotine. Right. That's what we're used to seeing the fact that he's hulking out to these homeless people while done is going and rescuing the cheerleaders is never resolved. Honestly. And it's frustrating. Yeah. I find if you're going to subvert or expectations with the superhero film, which I think this film was going to do a lot to see how people react because I definitely thought we were going to get a different film than what is presented. But if you're going to subvert our expectations. You gotta show us as a writer as director that you understand what the cliches are with the tropes are with the steps are so Reno what you're doing. It's not just a happy accident. And yeah, we don't get any of those typical superhero moments at the beginning, which is where you put them. So when everything's averted later re okay? We get it. But this is a weirdly edited film. I just don't understand a lot of the choices. Why we go to certain scenes over other ones throughout it. It's confusing for me. There's a lot of stuff on the cutting room floor. If you watched the trailers, there are lines and scenes that are. Not in this movie. We never see prices mother. They always underestimate the mastermind and things like that. Yeah. Which gave me the impression that MRs price was in on the whole thing. Nope. That's not the situation here. Which is why I thought she'd become one of the supers at the end. I think there's beginning is definitely truncated. You can see there's an obvious continuity problem. It is streaming day light win. David Dunn finds the brick factory unchanged. The girls and suddenly BC's aligning on the pipes above them. Kind of reminds me of alien three like the coolest part of alien three was when we had all of that upside down camera work, and they do their little fight. And when they go out the window. It's pitch night fog and rain, and we could see from those windows sunlight streaming in..

And he returns home with Adam who he and eve will raise as a surrogate son as credits roll. Now, I'm the person who on a lot of podcasts. I'm gonna sit here nitpick realism. So let me just get this off my chest. And then I'll. Lately role with face transplants. Get a face transplants or not one thing, but the bone structure underneath doesn't actually look like the person. So when you have a new face, no longer, look like your old self or the new person know, they dress that they say the implants on the skull in that put the face over it. So it takes the shape be tissue rejection. This was a concern to my wife's she's watching that. She's like, oh, there's not a rejection that I don't buy any of this see the wounds heal. So quickly to have a sis- take it up my foot, and it had a giant gaping wound that I couldn't take a shower with for three weeks. They said those lasers heels super fast, and they have these anti-inflammatories like, pure, you instantly, four you can't live without skin on your face. It was just a couple of days. Okay. I'm more concerned about him smoking with no face five. Would he even have eyelids left? I thought he'd be like clockwork orange constantly terrific stuff in the eye. Okay. I'm done face transplants. Thumbs up. Okay. Yeah. Again, that's not my problem with this movie. That's the least absurd thing in. I mean, it kicks off with absurdity where at Griffith park carousel for some reason with the music box play like it's so milligr- Matic. It's shameful. I thought Hollywood made him do this stuff. Now, he's just cheesy at heart like q the balloons to signify the death of a child floating in the air. I mean, that's the kind of thing I would expect in a film class. I wouldn't expect master John. Woo to fall to that kind of cliche. I think that's one of his trademarks is to bring in visual metaphors, like the doves all the time and everything. Yeah. You're talking about cliches. I would expect first time people that are just learning film grammar to do. But this is what he's done and Ben very successful with in his Chinese films, and he's trying to bring his style to America. He felt like the first two films. He'd made in America. He was getting his sea legs the first one hard target. He felt didn't get mass appeal because it was just to Chinese John. Woo. He then felt like he went too far the other way on broken arrow and made just a generic American action film that didn't have any of his style except for some doves. So this was the balance and by and large the studio was pretty hands off their let woo that would do that. He do so well or not, but my favorite part of this scene as all right? Lots of weirdness Travolta, doing the hand. Gesture you referred to Jacob. I don't know what that is the waterfall..

"And it's actually all real. And this is where he says what I took is why she was made was that he fell in love with the mother, and she was bearing she couldn't have children and wanted children. And so he used his genetic magic to maker. And then he said we gave her also the tool. To be free. Meaning they made her they changed her. So that she could always protect yourself. I don't know that they knew that meant that you'll be running city to city for thirty years. But you know, she could handle her own without them because they knew there would become a day. They wouldn't be around. I heard the words give you the tools you need to be free. And I knew that the mother was barren. But yet it too close to didn't equal five for me on this one as to why he would do that much genetic manipulation. How much did he know they were running from? It's all very muddy to me. Yeah. It's not perfectly laid out. I took it as yes, he was killing two birds one stone giving the woman he loved child and also making his best version of what he'd been doing knowing that this child probably spent her life on the run from this organization that he was leaving. Yeah. She wasn't trained as a killer. But she had the instincts of protector self so it's slightly different. And you know, the fact that she's female and not male. Maybe they're playing into the Jenner politics of that as well. But he thinks when he sees forty-seven he's a dead, man. And what we're finding out is that this journey has been growth for him as well. He believes he has free will. And so if you choose not to wipe out a target he doesn't have to and we'll see him even make that choice because we're not sure who has target is it could be living co, but we'll have it confirmed by Angela baby in her one scene that it is in fact, his sister, and she's playing Diana. Right. That was Angela baby. Yeah. Yeah. The one that we never saw in the first film that may have been a help or may have been setting them up. Never sure here. It's still kind of confusing as to what she wants. But she wants him to follow the orders of his hits. And he will learn that he doesn't need to listen today, and he can be his own man. And that means a car chase. Again, car commercials guy. Gotta work this in here. I thought this was really actually pretty cool when we get. Zachary Quinto chasing them out on the street. The part of this. I really liked was when it gets harpooned in the intersection in all the guys come down on the ropes and all of that. I thought that was a really fun sequence. I was wondering who set a harpoon into a car. But I thought it was something I hadn't seen before was driving and basically being on a pendulum there. I can't say I'm into any of his action. But that one thing did kind of catch me as what what is that? Yeah. I mean, it's all coming off as we've said it before as very competent TV action. You know, if this was on Saturday night on CBS, I would be chewing my popcorn and thinking this is great. You know? I mean, somebody has an eye for cinematography here where they're stuck is dead center. In a yellow painted X line on the street this bright red car, it's all goofy and fantastical, but it's playing well, and I'm enjoying what I'm being put in front of here. Yeah. If you saw it in a movie theater, though, I think the problem is is coming out competing. With movies. You can't be TV action on the big screen. And so I think where they get into trouble is the fact that this isn't competitive with Mad Max ferry road. It's just not giving us the kind of car chases, and the kind of action that we've come to expect on the big screen where we paid fifteen twenty dollars, not even the remake of the Italian job. Right. And that was not the greatest. I mean, am not adrenaline is in the least the longer the movie runs, and it's not a long movie the less interested. I am because the first movie it had its hoax in because I was trying to hang onto the story with my fingernails here..

"But he is a special case will eventually find out that he was a one off. A fluke that live. It co didn't think was a good idea and wasn't inferior to forty seven. Forty seven is a marksman shoot him in the eye. Does he have thank teeny of behind the eyeballs? I mean, really shoot them up the nose go straight to the brain cavity. Put a gun in his mouth do something. I hate that. This guy's invincible in his a level of ridiculousness beyond even the ESP. I could take as she's just hyper aware, they are merely improved. But realistic people in this movie. You've now introduced superman. Yeah. That's what it is. That's the super part of it. Why can't we create supermen when we genetically mess around? I kind of agree with you last week with that movie. I was pleasantly surprised if that we were in a video game movie that wasn't dealing with supernatural or unnatural abilities that don't really manifest in the real world. And to this movie, we are now getting some of that we're getting superpowers. It's. Little off putting but I'm going with it in this movie. I feel like if it is a relaunch or a reboot, and this is something they wanna put in your as of video game type trope. I'm okay with it. Okay. I would like somebody who's maybe played every hitman game. Because I haven't to let me know if there's anything in any hitman game like a person, you can't shoot. Because one of the things I loved about the hitman games. And maybe this is my baggage coming in is that they felt real world in that you shot people. They died. You didn't have a big health meter were you could get shot a lot. You got shot. A couple of times you died. I liked the feeling that you were a really good assassin in basically, a real world scenario the stories if you can call them that in hitman are very rarely science fiction based beyond the fact that you are attest to baby that was genetic DNA spliced to be. The peak of human hitman, the hitman himself has nothing supernatural about him. He has to wear kevlar like anybody else. So if there's anything in any game, that's the precedent for this off Aachen apologize. But as it is this was a bridge too far for me and made me realize I'm in a movie with a star. I don't like an a premise that doesn't feel true to the title. I don't have any sense of what a hitman movie again. I thought it was a site game. If they wanna make X men, which is what this feels like feels a lot like the wolverine and x men origins to solo Hugh Jackman movies. If that's what they want to do. Well, liked one of those go with that. I did like the movie last week. We can agree that trying to follow that path was never going to lead to anything. Good. So if they want to copy superhero genre movies, I'm totally on board with superpowers titanium Endo skeletons all of that. It may not be a hitman game. But I don't know what that is. So I feel don't betrayal in that. Right. I don't come in with baggage or knowledge of this game either. So I guess I'm a little more accepting of this even though it's not what I originally wanted from this franchise as you bring this up. Yes, we always have different roles and now playing and mine is with vast video game history. And so I have that baggage if this was not a hitman movie if this was named something else and no relation to Iowa interactive. And I had this guy. I kind of feel like I do with the prestige. You know, I needed something else to tell me I was in that movie before the knife broke off Zachary Kean chest, it just feels two convenient. I mean, I think part of the issue. There is came to is not physically that imposing he's just not a big enough guy to be a heavy. And so how are we going to worry about him fucking up Rupert friend? We gotta give him a steel skeleton and again. Always thinking of Terminator throughout this movie..

"It was done in Bulgaria, which is a sterile. Because when the very first game starts, the doctor who created you is giving you. Instructions. It sounds like Dracula good, my friend good at. One one good hit. I I mean, that's where it was. No. It was never American here as well. Yeah. All the locations, and this film, I think and the last one have been European so I think that's the Maluku that that's where all of this happened. We're not interested in what America was doing. We're looking at a small program that went defunct. I now the potentially could get restarted because this doctor had a daughter they have found a photo of her. And because we have facial recognition software widely available cameras on every corner in Europe, we can now find or guess how those features might have grown into a woman that we can find on the street. Yeah. This is where we're getting into a little bit of like, a CBS drama type thing, you know, we're getting a lot of computer screens at lots of big graphics and lot of typing and stuff that I feel like is just kind of saying, hey, this is techy. Don't worry about it. If you're too old to understand computers. Just go along and understand that what we're trying to do is make it seem more complicated than what it really is. Yeah. I understand computers, just fine. And this is just bullshit. You can't really do a lot of there have been too many movies recently, I've seen where they're just like we've hacked every cell phone and camera in the world. It's making me nervous. Actually, like if movies believe it's that easy to do. Maybe it is I wouldn't put it past all I know is movie audiences crave. More than what's currently available. We want something with just a little bit of edge. It's by this point as a concept where well aware of facial recognition software, and the idea that there's all of this heavy surveillance everywhere, we go. You're right there shows and CBS is the very definition of boring standard family fair. So we need to up this concept at this is just backstories saying macguffin for this movie is a woman who's connected to the scientists that has all the answers can following her lead us back to let Vinko. Agent. Forty seven believes that it could now played as Arnim pointed out by new actor named Rupert friend who. Yes, that's not some made up name, but is a real actor. I've seen in many things he does costume dramas. He recently was in death of Stalin and doing an abroad comedy was quite good. And it actually I think he might have gotten this role because he was a character that appeared in the later seasons of homeland which was a show made at FOX is role was very similar to this. He was an operative often an assassin running into dangerous situations. And when Paul Walker is not available to do your movie and you're ready to roll he probably is..

"It looks drab. And there's nothing flashy appealing. I would rather watch the video game walk through again. Then watch this mood. Listen, I mean, I agree. Timothy Allah phone in it in. But yeah, you thinking about what color he's going to paint his kitchen. He is remodeling the deck. He is making you know, what I can forgive him for this now because. Yeah, that's exactly what he did. I resent the fact that he made millions of people pay for it. But hey, yeah. He wanted a nice house. I think he portrayed the video game character perfectly. Having played this game for a month. There's no personality in the character playing and he brought that nothingness to the screen, and he got a house out of it, which is more than. We're tour. At least come to the pool and hang out for an hour to because I mean, you've made this movie on our backs send us a bottle from the vineyard. Yeah. Indifferences ride. I just figure this is the bland identity, and there's nothing more to it than that. Here's the worst part of it. As far as the arcade goes, if we were not now playing a movie review podcast, if we were the now playing arcade a video game movie review podcast. This would actually probably be agreed arrow. The top port. The okay movies. Early but nal in ridiculous. Yes. We are now laying the movie review podcast. This is a red arrow. And we're not done Timothy all the fun. I know where we're going to next. I didn't even really I was at FOX. And I it was a surprise to me when I found out the weekend, it came out summer two thousand fifteen that they made some sequel pulled it out from somewhere. I kid you not in the movie theater, and I see a trailer for hitman agent forty seven, and I go I thought they made that movie I thought I watched that movie tonight not much. Another movie, I literally forgot his movie existed to the point that I've like is it a sequel his new movie did this movie get delayed yet on the shelf for eight years? Is Billy Zane status. Or will they give it to them? Because why the fuck not? Hey your ball. Let's just do it. Everyone else ball said no. Part. Three Wong from doctor strange. Addict along is agent. Forty seven. Meanwhile, this Friday, we're going back into the land of bloom house horror with the visit. And I shall shamans first respectable film since like unbreakable. Maybe you're signs. It has been a long while since he's had legitimate hit that wasn't scoffed at and visit was it hit. I remember even being disappointed. I went because I thought it was going to poke fun at something. And I didn't quite get the mockery that I was used to with night. So if you're van things are looking up if you're a hater, well still join us this Friday because there's a lot to talk about with the visit and we're coming to a close on the night thing. Three films left. We have the visit, and then we have split, and then we have glass, and I bought my ticket for glass already got the I max it is an I'm ex movie. I think that might be an night.

"It, okay? You have to find him. Okay. Why don't you just open the vineyard for himself? I mean, I need a drink. Well, let's get one in just a couple minutes until then Justin Stewart how big of a bounty. Do you wanna put on hit me, just you know, I had some hope going into this movie because I really brought no baggage with me. I didn't know anything about the game. I didn't know anything about this movie other than some of the iconography that I had seen in years past and as we get into this movie realize, oh, okay. This could be like a JAMES BOND or Jason. Born kind of spy thriller thing we're not in a scifi. Realm. We're not in a realm of monsters or genetically modified creatures crawling out of the lab. This is going to be a nice change of pace in the arcade. I'm like, okay, cool. Let's do this and about five minutes in. I realized that this movie is suffering from quite a few things. And it wasn't until we sat down now that I found out that will big part of that is probably because the regional director got fired the studio wanted different shots, somebody else's vision came in and edited it, and it feels like that once the credits roll, it feels like a mishmash of a bunch of different directions and not a lot of good, fresh ideas. And so it just at the end of the day. It's I can't even say I'm disappointed was boring. But there was enough there to like keep you watching it like if we weren't watching this for the show, I probably would have finished it off. Is it wasn't that offensive? But nica had a line about halfway through the movie that I think perfectly encompasses my thoughts on this movie. She said, you don't wanna fuck me. And you don't wanna kill me. I've never felt so much indifference in my life. That to me is. This movie. Didn't wanna fuck me. Want to kill me wanna entertain me. It didn't want to fend me. It was just indifferent about being a movie. So yeah, I'm gonna be indifferent about reviewing it. And just say whatever hitman not recommend Stewart. Yeah. That I honed it on that line as well. Although we've made fun of this and pointed out that it's quite terrible. I don't think you experienced this movie as being one of the worst we've ever reviewed. It is numbing -ly banal in different is the word. I mean, there is the chrome of coolness is that there is something cool about seeing a well-dressed bald guy with a sniper rifle beating up goons in posh European locations. I mean, just explained state entire people might get I get there is something inner -taining in and of a Abass pleasure that you could enjoy. But you gotta fill that suit with something distinctive state them has something distinctive. He can bring charm he can bring sex appeal. He can fill out that suit. All the fonts job was to find the thing. And he did not. He has no morals. There is no moral compass it'll kill the betrayer and kill the good guy. It doesn't make any difference to him. He has no sex appeal. I mean, unless you really can fall for the boy abducts girl, boy, let's girl out of the trunk boy drugs girl boy buys girl, vineyard story. If you don't go for that one. I'm gonna think you're going to be left cold on this romance here. Putting a lot on all the fun because I really do think he could have done a lot to make this bad stupid implausible story, at least surface level entertaining. All they really had to do was be surface. You know, make it feel like the game. Look cool. Do cool kills and plot Shmatko who cares? But I think this movie ultimately fails in his the red arrow because it doesn't even work as I candy it looks cheap..

"And this is played by Robert Knepper, who you might remember as James Baluchis, brother and two beaks the reason season he was one of the casino owner, I actually went to the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind place. And I don't know there is a twin peak season three. No it didn't. But to your point that they have the Russian police as well as INTERPOL chasing him should be adding more to the story, but Yuri is working with the d'appel ganger to try and smooth this over they just want to stop the hitman that they hired and then they can cover all of this up, but he's hiding from INTERPOL he saying, obviously, the assassin CIA because if it's that gives us jurisdiction, even though at no point is Whittier saying, why would the want to kill the American friendly politician? Right. And then we also have some chunky Russian cop like bad at his job and gets half his men killed when they infiltrate the hotel as so he's not working with your E. He's working with Whittier. Right. Meanwhile, Michael Ovalles is they're just like confused constantly. This whole thing is needless, and yeah, here's the thing is it's got just enough action and enough momentum to keep me from being bored. And you're right, Justin. I don't remember this film mush from seeing it in twenty eight as watching it. I remember disappointment. I remember not liking it. I remember general distaste for it. But I didn't remember the plot. At all as I didn't remember also that the star actually wasn't Billy Zane thought. It was not Timothy Ola fans. But yeah, I'm trying to figure out if they're going to explain this away. And especially what point does nica have in all this. And what does she see in forty seven? She's like stripping and crawling top of him and grind and he throat punches her her. Yeah. He'll literally inject her to put her down like a dog you at youth. Trying to make love to. Yeah. I thought I missed like some sort of subplot of how these guys were all like castrated. Mike, you take the opposite. Right. We haven't seen a woman for an entire adolescence. You like a gang mob. Like, it'd be worried about the ball guys that are shaping on. But no the middle of this movie is agent forty forty-seven and Nika going on missions that don't seem to have much to do. But eventually circularly get them back to Saint Petersburg. They basically go talk to the head of their agency big Baldy Smith in Moscow. This is where I'm really confused because I thought all those ball guys were trying to kill him. But his boss is not there's boss. It's just a ball. It's a CIA agent agent. Forty seven knows you give him a two page. Scarlet. To make him. Look, nothing like the pack of bald guys that are killing him at every turn. Because then I didn't understand not only is this guy going to work for them. He's going to give them tips about well. Why don't you pursue the brother and impersonate this arms dealer not? But he's going to buy this Russian hor a vineyard. That even about. Here's what's going on is Smith is from the hitman games. He's just CIA guy who thinks he and forty seven or friends and forty seven is like this guy's just an incompetent douche. But he's bald in the games like bald bald. But like got the hit you hair, you change that. I don't care what it is in the game to help of movie audience that has been told that everything bald is trying to shoot our main character, you create his ally with hair, that's all I'm saying movable would have put an American flag on his coat to let us know. Yeah. You're right. Can we at least have some setup for agent Smith? Isn't it really lucky out of nowhere? This guy. Just dais X CIA calls up CIA friend. You're going to get me out of everything. If I kill a drug runner for you..

"He dies you hide the body. Incinerated you walk out second. Okay. This gets for cursive because the two people who can identify the fake Bella cough is a prostitute. And the hitman we hired right? So now, we're hiring another hitman to kill the hitman. We hire to now. Hire a third. They kill them. Cling sequels aren't a. Yeah. Just hard to go in all there's putting a ball pop up later in a train station. They could do this endlessly. But it doesn't make any sense as a plot. And so as a viewer that was trying to understand political intrigue. I doubt have to let that go and just say this is going to work at all. It's going to be because Timothy Olifants is gonna make running down hallways holding those two guns against his chest and jumping down elevator shafts. Look cool, the movie will purely work on its cinematic look, and it's ability to recreate I'm assuming this is all from the game. None of this is from the game. Well, I mean, this style of you're going down a hotel hallway as and whacking some people and trying not to kill the made. And I know that there's parts where you look in through trapdoors in elevators and stuff. There's some of that one of the things that I really acquainted with the game is the disguises you wear a lot of disguises and things. That was added in more in like the train station sequence. And things some of the stuff they brought in was more from the game. But the game's not shooter. Here's the thing is if you have eight people coming after you with guns you've pretty much lost. And you lose points for every innocent you kill. So he's not doing a very good job of playing the game. But no jumping out windows and using a rope. Like, you're in a low rent diehard. None of that's from the game. Okay. And those are very much things that felt like it should be from game. I mean the devices the bomb on the door that felt like oh, okay. This is fan service for something. They've seen in a game. But apparently, no it's just a fun spy gadget. Now. That's strange that they're making that they're writing that stuff in this is the time where you late whatever gameplay is. I mean, I would think that your mission is to tell video gamers now at the twenty five minute Mark doing the game on the big screen if you are making. Man, the game into a movie you are not making an action movie. No that's not true because they're not shooting. Everyone on screen doesn't mean it's not an action movie. It means stealth that means God help me the Saint a lot of the skies. Is you know, but even the Saint has shootouts, and there are some shoot as especially some of the middle hitman games. The developers got lazy and put some shoot outs in there. But really if you're at the core of the hitman game, you're up four kilometers away. With your sniper rifle, you take the shot, you go to your car, you go back to your computer. And you find out who you snipe next. That's the game. Okay. I see. So here they've decided we're making an action movie why because the hitman has guns in all the covers. We see them with the guns. We see them in the crossbows. He looks like he should be Jason state them in the transporter. So we're going to give him that kind of a plot. Again, he has absolutely no interest in politics. He doesn't care if he kills real cloth fake Belikov. He doesn't care. If there's a new Bella cough. If it's the game who am I killing next where do I go back to Niger? Okay. Which is why movie audiences people that don't play video games? We'll never connect to this agent. Forty-seven? There is no reason to like him. He has nothing of interest going on in his head. I can't root for him when he doesn't even want to live. He just wants to get paid. Okay. And what does he want the money for right? Exactly. Saving up for what another rifle actually in the game. Yes. The more money..

"And the car could be the fairest bueller to make this stick in the mud girl become popular and fit in and not so much death angst. My father stuff you could've made that movie. I think it would have been a lot more fun. If they had tried to make that movie, but that movie is glossed in here with Mimmo as the dorky guy who has about five scenes at the Chiro stand trying to get her attention outside the garage. He lives down the street from her. He works next door to her. He goes to school with her and she'd never pays any attention to him. He ends up walking into our garage. The reason why he even becomes a part of the story is that he sees Bumblebee upright standing as robot. And thus has taken a long, I think Bumblebee is trying to help him out. I think he's trying to be a wing man later when the running from the sheriff at high speeds, he'll push them together as they're driving up the side of the tunnel. Like, let's get these two together in the back seat. But this is not that movie. It could have been that movie, but Nimmo I guess it's gender parody. We've seen many movies where the girlfriend role is thankless. This is a movie where the boyfriend role is just as meaningless ease the partner in crime. It's good to have somebody other than Bumblebee for her to share her joy with these are the first time that we see are happy is when she's with memo and Bumblebee, and she's showing off by doing the what you did last summer. Let's hang out the sun roof while the car, drives it self kind of thing I enjoy their scenes together. And I enjoy their tepid romance. I enjoy that it doesn't end with the kiss. I liked the realism that even after going through all of this members. Go try to hold her hand. She's like we're not there yet. I actually like that a lot, but I feel like we should have gone with the teen. Wolf solution? Of the hot guy wants, Charlie Charlie. Like, no memos the one for me and turning down the hot guy the way Michael J, FOX finally turned down the hot blonde for booth. Yeah. Those trips do not have completion of the story line. There are mean people and unattainable popular people that have some influence on this girl, self image. And she's in the middle of the movie facing them and never gets final showdown. And that's just a mistake of this movie. It got cut because let's face it. What we've been talking about is John Hughes movie. Where are the transformers we have interspersed in here? The story of the deceptive cons, but maybe not enough to the liking of people that did like the babies, and I looked Jerry as the person amongst us who best leg the bay verse. Does this transformers movie transformers in it for you? That's a good question. That is one thing that popped in my head. I mean, you're talking to extremes here. I mean, you remember when we were talking age of extinction, and I said. Some to the effect of the for the the first forty minutes of the movie, however, long was I was really digging. The fact of, hey, what would this movie be like if it had just been Mark Wahlberg, his family and just on some sort of adventure with Optimus trying to get away from that bounty hunter and the bad guys where you didn't need a million transformers, and I didn't really like the auto parts and that team did some things that is cons. I didn't like visually and all that stuff. But I did ponder. What if it just been Optimus trimbe in Cade just trying to get back and find the rest of them kind of that kind of movie and kinda Doug that thought? So I'm okay with the number of transformers, I wish to dissent. The cons that we got chasing Bumblebee who for the most part don't have prior history in the transformers universe. The names out there. There's toys out there at cetera, but these aren't known characters just kinda screams, they're dead meat. So the stakes art is high because of that so on a bay level. Of course, not that was chaotic I even said that even though I could tell. Them apart. It was still like, hey, we just threw in six to septa cons. Here's their names..
"movie review" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"He's got good comic timing. I think he's very charismatic etcetera etcetera. But when. He has the play bad guy because he never does in his wrestling world. I don't think he knows really how to do that role in this movie. He's a tough guy. Get on my way, you'll do what it doesn't come across. So I think his little bit part in the first daddy's home where he just shows up the end one of the funniest parts of the movie, actually, if he continues to play that same role in an entire second movie. I'm not surprised here. That's terrible. Well, it seems to be like by the end of this him. They'll shift him into the scene that people apparently love my sense was that. Yeah, he was like the Newhall Cogan. He was the one that kids root for and the rock sometimes was villainous. But could also be lovable. I'm not sure. But I don't nothing about that world. That's fairly accurate. John CENA was for ten plus years. The number one what they call a baby face, the number one bad guy in the company that you could take you need one of our stars the co host good Morning America, send John CENA. But yes, he's looking for a franchise. I think like fast and furious or something. That makes sense that they would bring him into this realm. If Mark Wahlberg is running away with everyone else that was in bay form. God only knows what kind of contract Walberg has. But again by going the prequel route, which they decided to do long before the last night ever bowed before audiences and then was slain by audiences. They had this idea in mind. Remember as I mentioned in the last night, Steven Spielberg hosted this writer's room full of named people who just started brainstorming where they could take the transformers universe. And that's why in the last night, we saw Bumblebee fought in World War Two is they thought they could do World War Two transformers film. They Spielberg himself. Yes. Steven spielberg. Not somebody else was saying, let's put this in a movie so that we can build upon it later and out of this writer's room trying to make an entire transformers universe of movies. This is the first spin off. And it makes sense that the first enough. Would set itself into the nineteen eighties. Because well for one thing that's big right now, I feel like with stranger things, and it and summer of eighty four there's been so many little horror projects I've noticed where we've really gotten a stellar for that time in place as a coming of age. I think all the people that came of age are now telling stories in Hollywood and people are parents and the responding to that. But it's also where transformers came of age. I mean, the first generation of transformers that was what eighty three eighty four. Yeah. I started collecting in eighty four because I remember returned to the jet. I was out and done and the Star Wars toys, we're starting to fade. And I was watching transformers cartoon's GI Joe cartoons than love the idea of robots in disguise more than meets the eye. It really got me. And so I think that's good for box office. If you're trying to you know, you don't want to throw away the Baber. He did a lot to give them ideas on how to bring these characters to live when a movie screen, but perhaps you would like. Something that doesn't feel so Bazy then. Yeah. Go back to what worked. Remember, the toys you played with remember the eighties. That's a good strategy one that doesn't entirely seem to be working. Now, we're releasing the show a week after we recorded it. We wanted to put aquaman out I but the early box office on this is pretty dire. Even though this was done on the cheap..
