The Sedano Show (Hr 2)
That's my word connectivity. You know, you are out there using that word today been using that word for weeks. Flattered. He's maybe subscribes to the oh it said, it's a he substantially they subscribed. Yes. Maybe they subscribe to the podcast, which by the way. Thank you guys for continuing to do. So we continue to be in the apple top two hundred which we appreciate subscribed rate and review. Thank you so much for doing. So tell your friends as well and family members of they love sports to subscribe to the podcast again. Thank you guys for showing up to our hotel Figueroa event. It was a blast of mean. Was there a bunch of people stop by? And you guys were there. And again, always humbled and flattered how you guys support this radio show and this radio station and our events so super happy at the way, everything turned out. I think everybody had a blast. It was awesome. Even despite the fact the Lakers didn't win the game. Everyone was had a really good time. So we'll get your calls here in a second. So mean, I'm driving in this afternoon. I'm listening to Mason and company because Ireland wasn't here. So it was the great Linda Cohn, Brian Kamm Manetzky who's also excellent. And Greg Bergman. We'll just leave it at Greg. Bergman numb kidding. I love I've known actually I've known Greg. I gave Greg. Why didn't give it to him? But he was his first producing job was was working with me, many, many moons ago. So anyway, I gave him his first I wasn't going to do that. I didn't actually give him the job. But he actually I don't know. Maybe I did. I don't remember it was a long time ago. Anyway, so they were playing some sound for Manny Machado who's no longer a dodger. Obviously, he's with the Padres. Nice. He now he signed his big three hundred million dollar deal. And he was asked about what he expects from his team this season. So I'm gonna play you the cut of kind of how they laid it out the cut of it's going to be them than the cut of Machado and their reaction to it. I think they're looking for reasons to hate on Machado this really upset, Greg. It did. Oh, greg. It's so cool. High gets upset all riled up over. I get upset. Breaking news. You got all riled up about Manny Machado. Oh, yeah. Well. You hear is what Manny Machado said in. This is it. It was on the BUSTER only podcast today. But he said it to reporters at Padres spring training. Many. What gives you the feeling after a week that this is going to be a special year? I just see the guys are hungry, you know, their hunger here, and they see the organizations up in there for Ford on, you know, taking this addition to the next level. And you know, I need is is confidence in this game. And you know, I think, you know, organizations put that Beffa forward and giving the guys a lot more confidence about their in that this is not going to be losing losing situation. But we're going to try to win maybe not not the division. But you know, we're going to go out there and Pfeiffer for walk hard spot. And you never know what happened in baseball saw. You know, we just gotta go out there and door selves have fun. And we've got pretty special group. Why not put the dodgers we could do it? We could do. I'm not saying we can't, you know. No. But you know, they're great great team on the other side of the they've wanted to visit last five six years. So, you know, you know, we we we got our work cut out for us. But you know, I'm confident in the guys that we have here. And if you are, you know, stick together and get on the same game plan. You know, we could be dangerous maybe not win the division. Go there. But but compete for awhile are, yeah. Hey, hey, how many of your dodger fans right now saying thank the Lord. Thank the Lord. You're all to talk about in sports under promise over deliver. So I felt like that was unnecessary. You know what I thought? So I hadn't heard the sound at all. Yeah. Just I'm just like you guys are her, George tease. It say, hey, they got upset about this. We'll hear about we'll talk about it next. And I thought he was going to say, oh, it's so much better here than LA right lane about nothing ain't gonna say look. That's what guys say whatever nothing. He said he'll the poverty are terrible team. Why would he think they should win the division? Correct. What kinda ridiculous statement? Is that right? He's just being honest being perfectly honest, and by the way, and it's a fairly innocuous state. And then showed a reverence to the dodger as I saying why didn't LeBron chimeras it wouldn't a championship this year. And we're going to beat the wards come on. Let's not let's not be idiots. This team has one is not only one division. Six five six years in a row they were a series of right? They will gave away from winning the World Series two years. So so nothing he said was out of. The ordinary nothing. He said was disrespect. Well, nothing is there was was self deprecating. Even right now. Oh, yeah. Oh, that's why I'm glad he's not a dodger as if he were dodger. He would have said the same thing. Hopefully, we'll compete, but we won't win the division. Of course, he's going to say we don't win the World Series. The dodgers are a World Series caliber team. Right. The Padres are not. Yeah. It was very strange. I felt like their reaction to that. Because that was fairly innocuous. You know like that is literally him saying. Yeah. You know, they have the youngest team in baseball the Bodry. So like, they they're a couple of years away for competing. But he says like he says baseball is wacky. Anything can happen. Maybe they find themselves in contention. We've seen young teams do that. But that yeah. I felt he was weird that they just like hated on him for no reason. I have I really thought he was going to see some wild disrespectful. I did too. I did you teased it. Yeah. And then I had the same reaction. You just did by the way real quick on the dodgers, though. Horneck Custodio of the times reported today that Riccardi cut on Clayton Kershaw bullpen. It was a great first step. He said Kershaw looked freer and cleaner. If he comes out of it. Okay. It will throw off the mount again in two or three days Kershaw. Hear his comments on starting an opening day matters to him. Yes. And no, I guess, yes. Because I got a little streak going and just the history behind it is pretty cool. But no in the fact that it's just not worth one game out of many. So we're kind of monitoring that now. I mean you had. I'm trying to remember was Steve Nash already starting to breakdown when you were in Phoenix or no not yet. No cause remember he came to L N. He got hurt. Right. Right. Right. And then that derailed. He was already dealing with. We he. So when we sign them remember he was coming off a bad back. Mark Cuban thought he would never live the life of that deal that you sign in Phoenix. So he was definitely under close watch and very strict as far as diet as far as they exercises. He had to the correctives and all that. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Because I'm worried about Kershaw they gave him that extra year. He's got three more years at thirty million dollars. You know, it's strange that this organization Andrew Friedman. Those guys who are really good at this stuff. They don't normally pay for past performance. And it felt like maybe ownership got involved or whatever. But it felt like there was a little bit of that involved with that signing, and hopefully it works out where they can keep them healthy enough for when it matters. But let's go to the phones we got a lot of people want to chime in on this gonna answer. My man. Tony romero. Yeah. Good. Tony. You're out of your mind wanted to train the Bronx. Yes, right. You can to sell out say lamonica get some good pieces of start from scratch. You don't have to do that. They've got picks. They've got. Young players. They've got cap space most of the time when teams do that trade their best player for pieces and picks in it's because they don't have any of that stuff is all we gotta clean up the books. You don't have to do any of that. Yeah. You sit still and just figure something else out. And then second of all it's still ignoring what I say if you trade LeBron goodbye to ever having another fridge and chimera again. Let's go to k Jane Elliott what up K J. Hey was not all man. And thank you for taking my call. You know, what I'm realizing I'm realizing a lot of analysts are going to a California dispensary and getting a bad batch. Meekness? They're they're spilling a lot of. Hey tourism. I don't blame. Lebron? I don't blame magic. I don't blame her up. I don't blame. Ginny. I don't blame the new players. You know what I blame? I blame the injuries because if we wouldn't have had no injuries. We would be there looking Golden State company games, Golden State laws. So I'll believe that's what the issue isn't. If people go look at that interview with Magic Johnson and Shannon Sharpe two years ago. He said we'll be back in two years. The why everybody taking the best wanna be there. Now, I get it. I'm Amanda faith. I wanted to be there now. But guess what they they say when they was losing the last five years where all the men. Yeah. With that one guy. First of all, you're right. You're right. There's really no other way around right? We did the blame pile on the jump about a week ago or so and the biggest slice was health. Yeah. Right now. I don't think that if they had stayed healthy everything would have been perfect and find because you still have all end Davis thing that happened after the first of the year. And I think that had an impact it's it's it's you can't ignore it. And then you also have to factor in the schedule got a zillion times harder. Right. That also had an impact. And then you also have to factor in that the roster construction. I think when you talk about the guys they went out the vets they went on and got we're not the right vets. I think all of those things that are coming to play. I think the Lakers would still be in the playoff hunt. But you know, it still would have been seven eight you said at the beginning of the season that the it's gonna come down to the last week of the season. Yeah. That's what would have happened. I think to buy. I honestly didn't think it would be like this. I thought it would be like you're clearly going to be five hundred. I thought it was going to the Lakers win forty five. All you need forty six to the playoffs this year. Not a Bunder would be under under five hundred. Yeah, we'll take more of your calls at eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. A hanging out Keyshawn. It's going to stop by four forty. We'll talk Antonio Brown raiders with him. And Nick foles, I believe just got signed to the Jaguars and let me on bell. By the way, tweeted something kind of interesting. In just a few moments, but for the Laker fan coming up next as well. It could always be worse. I'll tell you what that means next. So Donna show here on ESPN LA Keyshawn going to join us in ten minutes might don't forget to remind him that he's scheduled to appear Amine is hanging out today. All right. So before we get to the calls. We get a lot of people freaking out about Jeff Van Gundy's comments about trading, LeBron and the Lakers should trade LeBron and all that stuff. But it could always be worse. I mean, you actually, I believe interned for this organization. There's the New York Knicks. Okay. James Dolan, their owner continues to embarrass himself went out there. A basically as he's walking through a tunnel. Some dude yelled at him and said sell the team, and then he stopped like, a mob boss and pointed him out and giggled not like a my boss, well, mob boss would have been a lot cooler now. Right. A little squirrelly little. Goodling? Yes. Not even a fully grow nerd in Italy. And he said, are you think that's funny? And he's like what's my opinions? Like, no, it's not it's route. And then he basically told his his guys his security guys to he said, well have fun watching them on TV like saying that you can't you're banned from the arena. And this is after obviously banning Joe's Oakley a couple of years ago. We remember that episode. Honestly, man, like, do you think that stuff we were talking about the Chicago Bulls stuff, you were talking about how you can't trade LeBron because, you know, the bulls penny pinch Jordan, and they have been able to sign a big free agent since the Knicks. I mean, who's the biggest signing MAURICE Stoudamire on a bad knee. So I mean, this can help them in their efforts for Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving it. The only way when it comes to Durant. I feel like he probably in his camp feel like there. Influential enough to overcome it. It's the same reason. Why why do the Knicks get higher gentleman in the higher head coaches and all that stuff? The idea is that people in this business tend to delude themselves in how much power and influence. It actually have writing in order to say that I can't go there because Jim Dolan's terrible as an owner. Because he's kicking out fans. Some dumb. It would indicate that you your power is not great enough to influence, Tim though and overcome that and overcome. It didn't Phil Jackson though. I mean, sixty million dollars helps them. No, that's true. And so, but that's the thing. You know, if it were regular free agents. For instance, Kemba Walker right or Chris Middleton or someone who basically look I'm just here to play basketball and collect much right, right? I'm not here for the office politics. They probably would be scared away by that. But when you talk about it's the same thing with you know, you could argue that if LeBron hadn't personally been insulted that New York would have been an option. Yes. And what made it not an option wasn't because. Oh, you treats fans better kicked up. Phil jackson. It was the posse comment. But it was split. Yeah. Something specific. So if it were Jim Dolan saying something crazy about Kevin Durant, specifically, then maybe that Jim that's different. Right. But if it's just like him kicking out a fan and just being in an overall dummy. Yeah. Or excuse me, exhibiting the behaviors of a dummy. Yes. And it's not a big deal. Kevin is in LA. What up Kevin? Yeah. I'm calling in and talk about the Lakers. I think that where they made the mistake is, you know, you gotta let the fruits down the tree gotta let it get. Right. All those young players with through bruising for five years. And then right when these players get good, we let them walk out the door, the ends low. Russell Julius Randle. I I mean, even who wins if we would have kept all those guys in added, the Brian, you know, we wouldn't have Kouzmin, but we would have Russell Randall. Lonzo ball. I mean, we would be fine. The Lakers made a mistake by giving up on the young players to to so and and people in the media calling these guys. But I mean, he's got I mean, they were calling these guys bus and they in their first year twenty thirty forty games. Oh, these two bucks. He's not worthy of number two picks. And now look how these guys are playing looking for ball. They did a great job with these young guys, and they should have kept them. But they made a big big mistake getting rid of these stuff. Let me ask you this a mean, and I know we're re doing revisionist history here. But at the time, even as much as I questioned Dangelo Russell's maturity, I still could set that aside and say, I didn't love the fact that they attach them in a salary dump. How else are you gonna dump the salary late? It's like people know man, the liquor should have got rid that Alva contract as a, hey, take it, and I ain't gonna give you anything good with attach picks to it. Instead if you feel like you're LeBron. And the you rather have the Endo Russel or Lonzo ball and Kakumba. Honestly, I'd have to think about that. Not come on, man. Really? I liked the ends. Also, come on, man. Yeah. I I mean, listen, you're you're a talent evaluator I will sign on those things. But I don't think I actually have to think about it. And you you get to players to players. Oof. By the way, liberals way. Well you ever to play in the way he played this year. Which is remarkable. He's good again, it mob burger p played in the Western Conference. Would he be in also competition? No, okay. Let's not get twisted with titles and things. Like that that come. He's good now. He's good. But like any guys are good too. Right. They're not as good as he is right now. Right. But if you're telling me, I get those two or is just him. Right. But you could have you're only getting right? Like, technically, Lonzo wasn't regard. You could Lonzo regardless. But again, the whole point is the NGO Russell's deal allowed them to clear the salary off the bolt together. Lebron lebron? So what I really should say is would you? Navan or de ngelo Russell, that's one. I just feel like there had been other ways to do Julius using the nets may not have been interested in a pig. No. Like, they they want like because it takes two to Tango. And MAs gov. Was a horrible deal. That's the whole point. You got to incentivize people to take an a toxic deal. And that was the incentive at the time. When you look at a bottle, and also there's an element of people need to understand Deandra Russell if he stays in LA and not because of a player development thing there's a big chance that he doesn't develop because he doesn't get that shot going from top to do. They gave up on me that question to your point. When I saw him at summer league. I chatted with him a little bit. And he said that he's been he'd been humbled, right? Felt a lot differently about his situation, and he had matured. So that's when I realized oh, he gets it. And then you saw what he did this year flu like people say that oh the thunder had kept teams hard. They would have three MVP. Oh, no. You wouldn't be James harden. He'd be some other guy. Right, right. So keys supposed to come on with us next. We'll take your calls as well. We're trying to track him down. But we could continue to do that. We'll talk about Antonio Brown as well. Because I felt like key of all people had I mean, no one knows a wide receiver playing for Jon Gruden better than him. So we'll get to that coming up next sit on a show ESPN LA. So Donald show you at ESPN LA. I mean hanging out today. He's trying to fix it and figure out how to use Instagram. I'm telling you doing it. Right. Don't worry about it. We'll get back to your Laker calls in a minute. So Antonio Brown's going to the raiders there. Eight is for a third and a fifth Jon Gruden swindled the Steelers or did he I guess we'll find out. We'll get Keyshawn starts on mornings with Keyshawn l z and Travis each and every day here on ESPN LA from six to ten AM. So keep before we get into kind of how this helps the raiders. And what it does for the Steelers you've played for Jon Gruden. You were a star wide receiver. Much like Antonio Brown is what advice would you give in Tonio Brown in regards to playing for Jon Gruden? What's up, George? I I would just say, you know, you just keep your head on the swivel all everything that you hear from him. Just take with a grain of salt and continue to do what you did in Pittsburgh in it'll work itself out. Don't, you know, don't don't get too high? Don't get too low just everything should be even killed when you're dealing with. That's just my vice Antonio, don't don't take it personal just kind of. Watch it watch the process. That's all I can tell you know. It's like it's like somebody's sending your car it telling you, it was brand new when it's really you. And then at the end of the day, you paying Brandon crisis. Yeah. I mean, you know, what I mean? No, I feel you listen, I get it. Trust me. I understand. So how do you think that will play out though on the field because Derek Carr is is pretty good? He's okay. They don't have another great receiver opposite him. Jordy nelson. Looked a lot like his age. I thought last year. So how much more difficult will it be for him on that team? I think. I think it'd be difficult. Just because you know, now get they'll get free agency not over and the draft certainly have some players. They're that young and you could get one or two people in in put him in the offense in the Tonio Brown. We'll be able to touch the football in down to the crowd and do some of the same things that he's able to do in. Pittsburgh what happens in these situations with grooten is you can't allow him to tell you something it is you start believing because if you start believing it, and it doesn't go the way that you wanted to go. Now, all of a sudden you start to look at social media, and you're paying attention to Instagram and Twitter, and you're paying attention to George Sodano at three o'clock talk about how you had a bad game. And then you're paying attention to people say we're paying him thirty million dollars over two years. And this is all he's giving us then you're going to turn to get mad. At the coach. So wouldn't told you you'll have to do is just do his part because when you sit around, and you worrying about all those other things he could completely destroy you as a player because if he doesn't play. Well, let's say for instance, he gets off to a slow start like real he's averaging four catches a game for sixty yards. That's not Antonio. So what'll happen became, you know, this amino in sports people look at how much money you make in that's going to determine what type of player, you ought to do is if you're not living up to the money in the building, then it's going to become personal. And then that's when the coach and the player starts to have some sort of friction because I'm I want you to get me to football. So that people can talk good about me. But when you're not doing that guess what start saying they're gonna start saying I'm not as good as I was. It was all about Pittsburgh was all about office work. It was all about. Todd Haley when he dialed it up. That's what they're gonna start saying isn't. That's not what that Tony a one will especially in football. I'm with you people look at the money, right because it's a salary cap sport. It's a hard cap all that stuff. And. Yeah, you know, what? If he plays bed key. I probably will rip. You're right. You've been around me, you know. Well, no been this happy to. I think people say, oh, he's not that good. I don't understand why they gave net private money. Not really understand understanding. Yeah. Begin tired teeth? What the situation is. It's no other receiver like you pointed out car, no running back cards field. Trying to learn how to play under group. And then you start to get that finger-pointing. He look he made out. Well, okay. Does he made I will to two year deal for thirty some million dollars? Basically what you call it. The raiders got a third reggae the third round peaking fifth round pick four guy. He valued his asset to the Pittsburgh Steeler. It's the pick. I even fun to get more when they treated him that way, he went on national TV. And at that point everybody knew oh, he's he's he's gonna get traded. We're we're not going to give up anything because they got a two and a half million dollars number on his head March seventeenth in that they part ways with them after March seventeenth they give it in two and a half million. And then they're gonna get significant cap here. But I'll tell you what we'll take you. Your hands for three and a five what basically a two year deal with third round pick in the fifth round pick in the money. His guaranteed opposed to the money not being guaranteed in Pittsburgh. But it's basically the same numbers for the first two years. She let me ask you if it were up to one or two different things either. Antonio Brown is going to make Derek Carr. Look good for Derek Carr is gonna make Antonio Brown look bad, which one do you think is more likely? I think the I think the more likely scenarios Antonio can make dare car it, really good. That's what I think. Okay. I think I think it's I think it's I think Tonio doesn't look good. It won't be because Antonio skills. It will be because Jon Gruden didn't put him in the right position and their card and getting football. That's the only way he's gonna look bad because he's really good, man. He's really really. So, you know, I feel really good. So then football player, not necessarily a we Seaver. Just a good football player. Was a heavy said that then then we kind of feel like we're we're expressing some confidence. Derek Carr, right in that sense that that he's someone who can be saved. So to speak. What have never I never thought. It was anything wrong with car me car was car was barking up on MVP conversations to two and a half years ago. Right. So I never felt I never felt like anything was wrong with car. You. You got hurt. They he came in with a new coach of the new system. He was criticized at times for doing, you know, throwing the ball away or interception here there. I mean, I thought he was fine me personally. I never thought the raiders should've fired Jack del Rio. But that's me. I mean, I thought that when they played Houston in the playoff game is their car that they would have seen the New England Patriots AFC championship game that year. That's only tool seasons removed. Yeah. Yeah. Key. What do you make how much right, right? No. No, listen. I you're right. I mean, it was twenty fifteen right and three seasons ago, basically. But you're right. He was in the MVP conversation. They won twelve games at that point. That. So he didn't all of a sudden forget how to play football at one year. What do you make of the Dante follower signing for the Rams? I think it's great. I think he's betting on himself. Because if you look at it, and it me and Travis talked about it if he he'd win out into free agency. He probably wouldn't have got fourteen million. Probably would have got a deal, you know, ten million dollars a year eight million dollars a year to year two three year deal. What he said is I'm still young. I just started flourishing in this defense last year. When I got traded, let me hit a full year relate Phillips under my belt. And now I'll be able to turn in some von Miller type performances because now I stand with planning the NFL is all about that. That's how I look at it. And he bet on himself taking a one year deal to get back to the marketplace next year, you said me and Travis at work. Where was that was it? Yeah. You know, I have time ill profit get about it. Vacation vacation vacation another concert. He he was he was there this morning. Okay. L D L D, come and go. He's got the LA times job. Now. He's the culture columnists like he's got a lot of stuff going on. LA times, he's boxing. He's ten. He's USC. He's teaching at US. That's right is teaching USA. He's got many got a million different things going up. We'll hustle hustle, man. Awesome man in the minute. He's gonna be waiting tables. Somebody's shaquille. Yes, right Shaq just over there, right down the street keys. You you mentioned that see what the hell is going to happen there. This year, man. Man, you'll get good mind. Let's put it that way. I don't know. I mean, they've gone through some ups and downs. Obviously, the beginning a year coaches in Kingsbury the end he's out then they bring in what's his name Graham, Herro herald Graham or something like the the the bring him the lighter version of Kingsbury. Yeah. So they bring him in. And now he's supposed to be the savior to the offense. And they're supposed to dummy down the offense the defense. So the players can play faster. All I can do is wait till September. There's nothing I can do except wait for September. Because you just don't know what it is a lot of players couldn't the names in the in the portal to transferred. So it's eight years medicine myth.

Santa Clarita Huntington beach in Thousand Oaks to order beer from the source. Learn more about the dudes brewing company by visiting their website. The dudes brew dot com. So we have breaking news literally happened while we were hanging up with Kishan is UFC star Conor McGregor was arrested Monday in Miami Beach for allegedly smashing a person's phone mcgregor's being charged with strong armed robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief in court in Miami Beach police after allegedly grabbed a phone for a man taking photos outside the fountain. Lou Miami Beach hotel at five am on. Okay. That's the part that made me laugh like this is where I can be the super sleuth for hours. This is my favorite thing about the story because they go he's in Miami Beach and take someone's phone any broken. Where did it happen? It'll happen outside the the phone blue hotel and when five AM Monday. Yeah, George what happens at five am on Monday at the found blue. That's the lead the hottest night for live nightclub which is one of the hottest nightclubs in the world is Sunday night. It's a hip hop night. And it happens every night and it ends at five in the morning. And it is located inside the fountain blue hotel in Miami does like lie. It's funny. Like, I read when I heard the beginning of well out when it happened thought it was like on the street at a restaurant with that prime. And then I looked at that makes sense. So legs perfect said there was you know, frolicking probably involve not him. I'm not suggesting that I don't know. But there's my guess is that people hanging on nightclub things. People get Hansie they get drunk things happen. Who knows what happened there left live and smash somebody's right because guy like McGregor guys. He should be used to guide just taking photo. Correct. Yes. So. See now banned right? You from from your phone is from a dude Mike doing the breadcrumbs thing. Mike you need to get. Lebron leaves them Lowe's out there. Yeah. I'm sure Dana white not happy about Conor McGregor right now. And what happened in Miami Beach last night or or maybe is heavy right because it's just more publicity. I guess right. So he's he is the most polarizing figure in the UFC arguably. So they have a number of those. But he's in that conversation, certainly, so we'll see what happens with Conor McGregor who's had his number of run ins with the law. And none of that. None of them have been good, right? He threw a chair at a bus and hurt somebody. And now, he's breaking people's phones and that smart by Conor McGregor guys. Interested part is what we still see the photo because you can smash fast. That's the women. It's not like a like a Kodak camera. Those days are over. That is true. It's it's in the cloud. You just bring the phone to break. The phone McGregor was last fought in October for you two twenty nine. And there was talk about him fighting obviously this year. So we'll keep you up to date. If we hear anything else on Conor McGregor on next in the world of the National Football League Amine, Nick foles, according to Chris Mortenson will sign with the Jaguars for eighty eight million dollars. How much is guaranteed? Fifty is guaranteed for Nick foles country. Man, dude was the starter in Philly then became the backup in Philly after bouncing around a little bit and won a Super Bowl sat. There got them in the playoffs again last year after Carson Wentz went down. And now he is reaping the benefits according to Adam Schefter and Chris more five years ago wanna say he played for the Arizona Cardinals. And you can tell me this do is going to leave much longer than like threaten anyone to you. Obey like. But there was there was a point. Africa's. Remember he played for the eagles and had a really good season. And then kind of bounce around after that. And he played for the cardinals. And he and he wasn't good. And it was one of those things where it's like. Oh, man. Well, at least you you got you had the memories you had your little run a little running, right? Mitch is more than most of us. Exactly. And now, he's got eighty eight million dollars. Yep. He's got eighty eight million dollars. And by the way, the Jags. Let's face it. They wanted to upgrade they were a huge disappointment last year Frazier being one play away basically of going to the Super Bowl. And now they've got a guy who can play the position and not Blake Bortles. So maybe they can kind of have a resurgence defense has to get better though because the defense is. Well, and that was the reason they were so good. Yeah. There's good good two years ago. And it was the reason why they weren't right? That this and that money is extra long in Jacksonville. Oh, it is for real Jacksonville. By the way, one of the it's, you know in Jacksonville reminds me of like for people that don't and you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles, by the way. Sorry. I forgot. Yeah. Jacksonville is like nicer Sacramento is the way I would describe it. It's nicer Sacramento. That's basically the way because it's it's kinda it used to be kind of cow country. And now it's like people are moving there because the land was cheap and literally been like twenty years since I've been sorta near the water. It's yeah. It's like nicer Sacramento live there. But you know, what it's cool. Like, it does go a long way for sure there's no doubt. Speaking of the NFL levian bell has tweeted out decisions decisions. Now. What do you think he means? You think you actually means football. You think he's just trying to pick a doughnut somewhere like slice of pizza? The problem is Levy on Bill is known the troll. Yes. Quite frequently along those lines. I might be dissolved just trying to figure out what donuts donuts pizza, but it sounds like it feels like because he's an unrestricted free agent. Now. Now, he's got options choices. Now, there's no reason to be away from football, man. There's so many teams that I think makes sense for him to eagles. Obviously make sense as we just kind of talked team doesn't make sense for the Steelers. I mean the Steelers right? A team like the like, for example, the dolphins are trying to tank for two like I wouldn't want Levy on bell because you're gonna win game. I thought they were gonna get color Murray. No. I don't think do they trade off. What what about the colts? Man. I'm here on the colts goal. Just would look great. Could you imagine? If Andrew luck had that do he could just check it down two. Oh, come on, man. That would be unbelievable. That's actually where I want him to go. I want to see him with Andrew luck. Because I do feel like Andrew luck. Kind of gets a little bit of a bad rap or got a little bad rap because he was out for so long and people forgot how good he is. And it took him like three or four five games to kind of become Andrew luck again. But we saw how good he was once it all went down. I speaking of going down. I'm sure you saw this early Amine. She said, yes. Alex Rodriguez propose holiday for Lopez. Yeah. And apparently Alex did everything on his own with the ring in his proposal. Jaylo the memes are out there. The jokes are out there. The J lo is one engagement shy of as many rings as the patriots. Have. You know, Jose can Saco is trying to ruin the poor. Like what was that about? I mean, he's literate waiter isn't he put out his phone number out in Vegas for jaylo to hit him up on Twitter. He's crazy. All we surprise. No. Let's go that dude is he sings he does sing. But. You know what I mean? Like, it's just weird dirty, man. Get in another man's business for and also like what's what's the game? Right within game. Right. You're still a dude who used to be a star who got washed up on your own because of your own doing or undoing in that case. And not only that hold the broke owed. Even if you don't like the, bro. I will. I like I'm like nothing is like, yeah. Forget all that. Right. Let's just assume this man who has no code, right? Clearly, what what is the what was he he's gonna see this. And then what she's gonna hit you up Jose you? And I that's what he really thought. Like, she's gonna hit you up. Yeah. Why why I I don't I don't understand that at all either. But also really even know if he's telling the truth, though, we don't know we don't know jealous and envious they do all kinds of things. That's weird. Let's go to the NBA where Steve Kerr downplays the clip of liberators home says the lip-readers were wrong this guy in the fourth quarter. There was a clip as they were going to break in the warriors game where Steve Kerr may have been caught appearing to say, I'm so bleeping tired of drains bleep. Now, it looked fairly obvious that that's what he said. He says no the liberators were wrong said Kerr with a hint of a smile. What I said was I beg to differ with Draymond approach tonight. Those are my exact words, I don't know how somebody misconstrued. He's got the wool pulled over. Everyone's everybody's wrapped around his finger. He doesn't he doesn't. He didn't answer the question. Right. He all he didn't answer the question by confirming. That's exactly what. He said just using different words. Correct. And muffing is just like man this Steve Kerr. And by the way, here's the funny thing so Georgia. I went back and watched the the clip not not the clip. I watched like the last five minutes of the fourth quarter. Basically when dream on checked in right? And once in the two forty something Mark he didn't what does he I don't understand? Why you could have been mad about? Yeah. Defensively. Cut off. Uber. Uber. Layup drive might of the earlier though. But mainly it takes. Steve, I maybe maybe it was something he says it's going to to to the huddle. But there was definitely no many basketball wise that I saw a film that would elicit that kind of reaction. Yeah. It was kinda strange. But it just shows like, I know we talked about it last week you, and I that those guys are starting to wear on each other after a number of years, right? Everything just kind of wears a little more the jokes don't land the same way. You don't deal with the same stuff anymore the same way like all that stuff really actually happens. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. Jon cryer. Do you know he is the after he was two and a half men with Charlie Sheen. So apparently, he he's told the story recently that he said that working with Charlie Sheen was even crazier than you would imagine. I can imagine talked about like some public meltdown, and he says it was crazier than what even I was hoping for he talked to access live on Monday where you said in January of two thousand eleven the show went on hiatus when she in rehab shortly afterward sheen was infamously fired obviously after his public meltdown and then they replaced them with Ashton Kutcher. Not really wasn't my thing. I'm not into CBS comedies the only one. I was into his how I met your mother. Okay. I never watched that. It's the only one I was into. I'm because I think Neil Patrick Harris is amazed on what he does. He's very funny. But I've never watched that show. I've tried watch tuna, and no I tried watching any bang theory. No, they're not the big bang theory. I don't know. I don't get the appeal. Yeah. I don't either Cryer says they had great comraderie. But it was tough to watch a guide seen, you know, when we started the show and just kind of let him just kind of dissolve that way. I mean, do you try to help him like maybe he did? Maybe he didn't he didn't really get into that in the interview. But like are you just stay away from that stuff? Get someone you're working can do what you can do man. Like like, we also would Charlie Sheen. Was that? Right. That one person ain't gonna help them. Right. Right. That's got to be the kind of man. It's like it takes a village. It takes them like metropolis felt that dude. Yeah. Tiger blood? That was the thing. Remember that? Remember, he was almost like he always parlayed. Into like actual business on whatever seems right? Yeah. Tiger blood and winning and all that. As a lot of coq though. You write that is absolutely. A lot of what it was. I last story here for you. Do you like pancakes, not a van what I used to be van of pancakes? And then one day I woke up, and I'm just like, I don't like the this thing tastes and then. Okay. Anti-tank? How does that happen know? Needed. And it was like dry, but it was kind of disol- Gigi and like it just. I just thought it was maybe they'll just those pancakes would have tried them several times since and it's been about three years now, and I don't eat pinky. Okay. Well, the international house of pancakes. Ihop we'll be giving away free pancake day on tomorrow. Now. Hold on. Now, you said my favorite word in English language right March twelfth for the fourteenth year in a row. I have will be giving away free short stacks of their original bottom of pancakes from seven AM to seven PM on Tuesday, March twelve and they are doing it. It's a one day annual event that raises money for three children's charities the children's miracle network. The leukemia and lymphoma society and trainers hospital for children. So you want the free pancakes? There you go tomorrow. I hop. That's what's trending brought to us by our friends at the dudes brewing company, of course, five tasting rooms here in southern California, tore in Santa Monica, Santa Clarita, Huntington beach and Thousand Oaks to order beer from the source.

Jack Ryan Recap, The Ballad of Buster Scrugs, Homecoming, and Overlord
Excuse me. Man. That's Bill that barley wine. In where you only have trailers and posters to judge a movie, Jim and ten strikeout to answer the age old question, will you see. Ted, welcome to episode thirty nine of the trailer junkies podcast. Here we are again. Hey, g Mary this week, doing great, doing great. How about yourself? Anything? Exciting, tons of stuff. I've actually been watching a lot of television lots streaming this week. Lots of streaming this week. Yeah, we do talk about streaming quite a bit and we finished up Jack Ryan. How would it has tell the start with that? Let's start with little now playing. Okay. Well, yeah, or the finished playing maybe. Yeah, Jack Ryan. So let me first say that, you know, I thought it was good and I enjoyed it. But I do have a little bit of issue with it is it's a tactic says that the military -ness of it all. I thought that was spot on pretty much. I mean, you know, flying inch, no Kelly, copters and things. I mean, and some of it you give artistic leeway, you know, like when delta guys in the in the what he called the apartment of one of the terrorists at the end in spoiler alert. But you know, he shoots them down. You know, you can figure there's cameras. They know who the person is. They have people informants in the venture. They track him down and you don't know what the timeframe's are, you know, right. But my biggest issue I take is with writing and the writing. You see in a lot of different things where the writing breaks down and fails. One example really quick would be something like Terminator two judgment day when Arnold Schwarzenegger. You know, obviously the Terminator he's sewing up Sarah Connor. And he's saying, I've all this human anatomy and my data banks. I know everything about the human body as he so in her up and then later on in the movie, he's like, what is that water coming from your eyes do not understand, and it's like, you just told us, you know everything about the now. He said, why are you crying? He might not get emotion, I get that, but he doesn't understand why water is coming from the irate, right? So the writing breaks down and I. Think the same thing kind of happens in this where well, the way plays out is they set up in anybody who doesn't want to hear spoilers. There are a ton of spoilers coming up fast forward. Like, I don't know, fifteen minutes and. We don't have a time number yet, but just there's spoilers just know. They're spoilers okay, it's safe. So what they do is they say six months prior to any of tack, you know, they go in, they find this, they dig up this a bowl of body and they bring it into the country and they get a bowl ago and on. And then they make the pills that I, I'm assuming they made it into the vitamins, and you have the pills and all this stuff, and they give it to the Doctors Without Borders, they captured. They get a bowl that's predicated by a delta force, rescue mission. That's going to bring him to the states because they know the president's going to get his buddy who he served in Vietnam with into the White House to give him a big old hug and infect them with a bowl, which brings them to wash memorial, which sets the real stage for the kill with the what does it cesium or something nuclear. Know and it's like by the time you get all this, you have to start six months out, hoping that the guys you infected. I don't know what the incubation period is. What like four days or something. You have to hope that within this small window of time, delta operators land do some halo jump into your compound, rescue these people based on six months out. I mean, I, it just didn't jive with me. Am I missing something? Well, I think to me it was they targeted him because he knew they knew he was friends with the president. They didn't know how they're going to use the Abol of iris, but they knew they wanted to stage the attack. And then as far as the, what is it that other that that cesium that they used in the French attack that they were using it though in the hospital to try to get the president like, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's, you know, I guess that was their fail-safe because they were hoping the Bulla was going to take care of it. But even if the bowl. Didn't take take hold with the president than they had a backup plan. So it's kind of their backup plan? Yeah. I mean, it's a lot of planning it somewhat contrived. I thought that the the attack on the church was very well thought out. I was actually, I was actually thinking you were going to say that the the romantic part of it was the the downfall. I'm not even there yet. Okay. Okay. So so, yeah, all this, the chemical contrive, it's I think it's a shade, Tom Clancy's not still alive because I think he could have he could have helped bolster that part of it. But all right now tell me about the romance. Here's the part about the romance. I get it, right. So you know, there's like he has a crush on the gal and the gals a crush on him and like they're all like. You know, little finger in the cheek, you know, but like John Christine ski kinda, he plays the gym helper role in the romantic side of it with Kathy Mueller rate more well, Abby Cornish place, Kathy Mueller, but I think, well, let me first back up. I think she had a hard time pulling off an American accent because there were a few times and they were, I'm like, where's she from? Accent is not American. And initially I was like, is she French? You know, I didn't know. Because like she said, some words with that may have had a French accent or something right? But then when I looked it up, I saw she was a stray alien. And then I was like, okay, so she's probably trying to do something. And then she's bringing in late, maybe other acting training that she has or whatever. And it just kinda screwed her up with American accent. But whatever she did a pretty good job with it. We talk crazy here now it's fun. It's fun because I was talking to friends about having my son watch hundred Tober reading the Clancy books. And it's kind of funny that Clancy tried to to write any kind of romance or any kind of love story because he, he was. He wasn't very good at that part. So he could write eight hundred pages about, you know, tactical cold-war operations, but he couldn't write five pages of like a romance. But the funny thing is he's so bad at writing romance that he made the role perfect for Junkers Inskeep because it was almost like he's in the office trying to put the makeup Pam, right? And he's all like nervous and giggly about it, you know? And you have this guy who's supposed to be the operative, you know, whatever agent, whatever he said is for the movies. I don't know what that was, but he's like, oh, yeah. Can we start over. Eighteen a little nervous around you. I'm taking down terrorists, but I'm all like, you know, thumbs when it comes to women, you know. And that's kind of how I felt about it. And I'm just like, now, man, wait, wait till it's two o'clock in the morning and having some PTSD and. Yeah, and they play, oh, speaking of which they played out the helicopter rotor trope like shoot times. I think in the whole series, he did it in the beginning and they did it again later. And you're like, you guys did this one. That scene, you know, like we get it. You know you as PTSD from a helicopter. Oh, but I thought to me, that was a great. That was a great heartbreaking scene. You know, in a great know what the kid who pulls the pin. Yeah, I love that. It happened where he was showing vulnerable moment to her and he was explaining and all the way through his even through his storytelling. He's still trying to save that boy's life. And you might think, like if the boy, if he had found the grenade on the boy, it other being like he still would've tried to save that boy. Well, it plays out into Souilem on sun carries a completely over to say like, yeah, this kid's the son of a terrorist who's probably going to be a terrorist if you don't intervene in any way. And it implies that the kids like I really don't want to be a terrorist. I just wanna be like a kid playing video games hanging out my family and friends, but his. Dad's like forcing him down the terrorist route. Yeah, and Jack Ryan's kinda like, well, I could get yada here and bring you to your mom and you can live like a good old fashioned like American life, you know, whatever. And. Because I figure they probably get political asylum or something. Yeah, it seemed like it. I loved. I loved their correspondence through the game at that felt very real. You know, when you're when you were talking about when the terrorist the real terrorists in real life had Email accounts where they were just write drafts and wouldn't send anyone and then it would. That's how they'd communicate and drafts. Yeah, yeah. So I'll at all great. A great and I think for the action other than a few scenes new said, it had one extra helicopter PTSD scene, but even that eight episodes, it was great. It's a great ten hour thing. No, not even. It was eight episodes times like forty, two minutes. Yeah. You don't need the twenty two half hours or twenty two hours of television just to a commercial time. You're saying twenty four. It doesn't happen in one day when you save the world. No, I'm saying that the twenty I won't tell Jack Bauer. I won't tell them Jack Bowers, like in van Nuys right now at the airport. No, the thing with twenty four and the thing with the old way, the old studio way was there plenty of episodes that they're like, oh, just stretch this one, you know, just like we have the arc, the arc takes place over these twelve episodes, but we have to fill ten more hours. So just do like a character piece. Do one off thing where nothing, nothing actually progress in our arc because we need to sell soap. So when I was in the army, we'd be out in the field for like weeks on end like doing nothing right. I mean sitting around, you know, the hurry up and wait kind of thing, and just your training or whatever you're doing and it's like, so we would sit there and we come up with these scenarios or these like this versus that and so on. And it was a lot of times it was always like Jack Bauer versus Jason Bourne. Okay. Yeah. Who's gonna kick whose ass. Who's more bad ass like you know, Jason born, Jack Bauer. So at this one kind of brings in like the third like trifecta rate, Jack Bauer, Jason born or Jack Ryan? Yeah. And Jay, Jason Bourne I would say is the ultimate warrior because like he's just so like engineered, he's he was highly trained, but you're right. Engineered, I think, is a better way to put it. We're Jack Bauer has CT you and he has all the people behind him and he. Has Whitten gutten dammit. He doesn't have enough time to get into it. Where I think Jack Ryan, I don't really know what his superpower is like he just kind of seeds. He's like Wayne Gretzky. He sees the play four plays before the actual play right for moves before the actual play. He's a nerd, his nerd that that got out in the field. You know, it's like the joke is throughout their, you know, the analyst. I wanna talk to the analysts, you know, it's like, yeah, he's meant to crunch numbers, but he ends up getting Gooding in the field, you know, and it's and gets his hands dirty. And I like I like the little Dolittle times where he breaks where they're dealing with the the human trafficker and like you have to deal with the human trafficker to get to the assets that you need to get to to save the world. You know. So where Jason born is engine neared in his is pretty much like the mental fortitude that the CIA gave him with all of his skills innocence. Yeah, skills, hunting skills, computer hacking schools. And then the other guy, Jack Bauer. His superpower is like just persevering through everything with the support of CT you and technology. Look, I don't have time to explain to you later. I'll take him understand as soon as ax plane Senator Al, explain everything. As soon as I can't talk here. Come, let me try and explain. Trying to explain to you later, sir. Let me explain. Explain Kim here. I'll explain later right now I need you to put me in touch with one of the teams has been able to disarm the device already. And then Jack Ryan's superpower is like being able to foreshadow and see things and patterns, and he's just an analyst who recognizes situations. In the street down three get the first one, actually, I'm doing. Yeah, they're, they're three parts of a spectrum. Gotcha. So overall, what's your I mean? Did you good? Bad. Thumbs up. Them's down. You're gonna watch these two. I like it a lot. It was fun. It's a fun, eight hours. I, I like the, I would like to think that, oh, we had planned for ten hours, but we got done in eight. I like I like the idea of executives and people making media now not saying like we're tied to attend episode season, right? You know any any, any arbitrary number. You know, let the story take the time that the story needs to tell it. Tell what you wanna tell. And I've listened to some podcasts and forgive me. I don't remember which it was like a year ago or something, and and the topic they were talking about was that the story is written and you take the time, you need to tell it so and they were discussing Netflix and pretty much it was like, you haven't. I think it was something around oranges, new black or something, and they were saying that, you know, each episode might be in our five minutes, fifty, eight minutes in our two minutes and some odd seconds and like they're all within an hour somewhere. But like it could be five minutes longer five minutes, shorter onto our exact whatever. But you don't have the constraints. So you. Could just continue to tell the story in the most like in the best way possible without having to worry about commercials and time slots and all this stuff. And it just kinda just plays out just as you said, you know, and, and even some of these episodes, some were forty two minutes, some forty, seven minutes, but they were all around that forty five minute, Mark. Yeah, and I think there you're more concerned about losing an audience in the run of show, then you're worried about hitting a Mark of time. Yeah. Yeah, no, I agree. I mean, I would rather see a good story play out in the time. It takes than worry about like, oh my God, it's almost eight. It's over in three minutes. How are they going to wrap this up? You know? Yeah. All right, cool. But yeah, it was good. I thought it was okay. I'm going to watch these in two. Awesome. So let me let me run through all of the crazy amount of television and streaming that I watch this week. So I finished up Jack Ryan. Oh yeah. You wanted to do our beer. I was gonna say, let's cover our week over the pouring of a couple beer. Okay, cool. And we'll get that go and we'll cover a week, then we'll get into the trailers for the week. 'cause that's sounds good. Perfect. What do you have this week? This week I have the unity, vibration, which is the runner up from last week. It's the Khumbu pale. It's a, so yeah, that's our IP. It's double hopped with juniper. It's a seventy seven issue. But while I open this, that was a good one. Yeah, I was. I bought this at whole foods and we have a new whole foods in Burbank. It's great. We love it. There. I'm getting good buying this through through the checkout line. He's like, do you want to take that with you? And I was like, yeah, I wanna take so hands it to me. I'd like not to put in the bag with rest of my stuff and he's like, but you opened it and I'm like, no, I didn't open it. And apparently like it's all the way down. If you could see it, it's all the way down. Oh, I could see the head space. Yeah. Yeah. At he's like, oh, I thought you drank some of it like I'm not drinking beer in the grocery store. Although they have a nice, you know problems, but they're not that severe. So we went, we went to whole foods for a meeting air quotes, but we did have some work to deal with and hold. We, we, we hung out. It's called volt seventy one, which is a massive, twenty plus tap house that's inside of whole foods. Wow. And I'd go up to the guy and manny's his name in Manny was given us all like samples of all the different beers and the peanut butter stout and over and over again. And I was, he's like, okay. Flavor profile, and I'll tell you which burial you'll want. And I said, oh, I love that. It's over by up by what's the one? The Firestone. No, the Koenig Aurora. Figueroa okay. Said I love the Figaro American Kohner American. What's it called? Merican pine or something. Sure. He's like I have the exact beer for you, Lord, hobos, boom sauce. Learn hobos, boom sauce. What is he like? Getting on, like a freight train going cross country will like sticking little. Lord, hobos, boom sauce. Other than one of the best names in beer is a New England beer company, Lord, Lord Hobo is the name of the beer. The brewery and boom sauce is the name of their double, and it was amazing. I think it was it's, it's filtered. So he's like, it doesn't go for this new. You know, everybody in their mother is unfiltered IPA's. Now it's like the fad, it's a trend. Sure they filter it. Most of their stuff is in cans. They do a lot of canning in their in their brewery, but they, they got this on tap. So it was a beautiful tap served in tulip, you know, they have like five or six, tulip pours and everything in my vehicles. Like, why do you have a tulip glass while you fancy. So I had that had this doubt that peanut butter stout which was amazing to peanut butter stout. Yeah. So anyway, so that was this week. You can check that all out on untapped at trailer junkies. Ted, that's me. So this is can Bucci. So that's like the fermented tea that all the hippies drink. It looks very cloudy. It is. It is unfiltered as we were just talking about. Yeah, and it's, it's really refreshing. It's it's neat. It has the bitterness this like seventy seven in the IB scale, but the juniper really livens it up. So it doesn't have like sometimes bitterness can kind of carry a heaviness to it. This has not much of a head because the fermentation done with the Khumbu data. So the the head dissipates really quickly. Yeah, looks like lemonade. Yeah, it's kind of light on the fermentation, at least. Yeah. Okay. The carbonation not the firm and how does it taste now that you had to taste? It tastes really nice. Like it's it's light on the finished with gene. But it it feels like it really needs to be cold. You know, it's not traditional that you drink warm or cold like in the middle, like fifty degrees. Yeah, it needs. It needs to be chilled or else it's gonna sour really, really badly. Oh yeah. Yes, our I got you. Cool. What do you drink this week? This week I have a Firestone Kaba barley wine barrel aged twenty eighteen vintage. I dunno vintage with your what? I it's, it comes in a box if you can see the box here. Oh yeah, ten dollars for twelve ounce bottles. So. Wait right off this show. Doing here, you know, but and gives me all the receipts for all the beer that I'm drinking's needed like right off the beer drinking, but but anyway, it's a barley wine. Let me open the box here without ripping it. I hope, but what does it matter? Okay, let me get this thing outta here, but it's so it's twenty eighteen. So I've seen him before. Okay, I have it out who very cool bottle. It almost looks like a bottle of scotch. You know how they how they label it and date it and handwrite the, yeah. Yeah, someone have takes pictures, but is it round? Is it rounders oblong? No, it's a regular old. Twelve ounce bottle. Okay. Yeah, capped, I mean, you know, but what is it here? It's can I I don't even know what the I can't see it here. Oh, twelve and a half percent oklaho-. So it's like drinking a bottle of wine inside of a twelve ounce bottle of beer, but but they date him, you know, twenty fourteen fifteen sixteen at cetera. So obviously that imply. As it can be aged. Right? And I think really what you should do is by like three of them and aids him for like three years and every year, open one. And then every year you're buying three. So you're always opening like a few of them every year. But every year you have a few to open and you can see how they change over time and how the different, you know, I don't know. Do I wanna spend like all this money on barley wines, but. Anyway, Kaba UC a a and I'll put this on untapped at trailer junkies, Jim cool and write a little bit about it. They don't give you a ton of characters, but it's a very cool looking bottle. So let me open this year. Okay. And it's just, you know, you it off a little in the little snifter they say, so I got myself a little snifter. And let's see how it goes. But that's only about a what? Eight ounce or something, but hey, yeah, I'll fill it as they need to be chugging this at twelve percent. Yeah. Oh, that smells multi. It smells a little Hoppy. Not too bad though. I mean, well, not. I mean I like Hoppy, but Burley wine an IP. Very different. Oh man, that's smooth. Barrel aged. I'm assuming some sort of like bourbon whiskey, something or other. Oh, new tasted on the back end like about thirty seconds later, like all of a sudden that like whiskey flavor kind of comes back up on you, but like in a good way, I don't mean it's like, you know, I don't mean as coming up on you, but it's like lingering and one more sip. Yeah, and it has a very good mouth feel with like the right amount of carbonation. So as you drink it, it like fizzes in your mouth like a rock pop rock. Oh, cool. Yeah, so it's really good that way. It's like caramel. Like if you were to eat, like a piece of Carmo is if you're gonna make like caramel apples and it finishes karma finished his off with like a barrel whiskey, kind of, oh, that's nice. Like, oh, it's so good. Yeah, it's so good. Well, we're ten bucks, make sure when you put it on your shelf and your aging that you turn them every year. Turn no beer stance. I rate up on it. I'm just kidding. I gotta keep the caps moist. Yeah. Okay. So you wanted to get into all the TV you've been watching. So let me hear about. I'll run through it quickly. This week. I watched all two seasons of the good place. I don't know if you've heard of it. It's amazing. It's starring Kristen bell and Ted Danson and it's about four people that have passed away. Well, it's about some people that have passed away and have gone to the good place as opposed as opposed to the bad place. And there's tons of spoilers tons of twists and turns with Ted Danson Kristen bell and some great actors, but it is phenomenal. Every religion guest about five percent except for Doug for said, who's Doug force, it will Doug was stone. Her kid who lived in Calgary during the nineteen seventies one night. He got really high on mushrooms and his best friend Randy said, hey, what do you think happens after we die? And Doug does launched into this long. Monologue where he got like ninety two percent, correct. As I started tweeting out about watching this show, it has a following of people that have seen the show that start talking inside jokes from within the show. So it has that layer defect of Seinfeld. I don't know if you're a fan of Seinfeld back in the day. I love Seinfeld when you start talking to people that have watched Seinfeld, you start falling into like soup Nazi or close talker and use have shorthand of talking to this people and it has the same kind of cues throughout the show and the archetypes of characters that are the very special. So I got through that really quickly. I'll probably write some more about that or talk some more about that. But then I was inspired to finish up Hannibal. So hannibal's a hard show to watch. I just realized the last season is very dark and it's not it's dark in content, but it's also dark in just the color of the show and the lighting. And so the aesthetics and everything. The aesthetics is just dark and it's the red dragon story, which. Has been told very well through red dragon and through manhunter and through a bunch of other movies and TV shows and other things. So I don't know. I was I was I was still happy to see them continue their roles, but it's a heavy show. So it's hard to watch. Yeah, I got through it. I got to the end of it. I was like, Hugh. All right. That's let me watch something a little lighter. You feel accomplished like you got like lifting weights or. Yeah, exactly. I know I'm going to be better for finishing the set then. An-and I watched battle the sexes which is about the tennis, the great tennis battle between like Billie Jean King yet, Billie Jean King. Okay, she played against. I don't remember his name. Yeah, Ed Riggs I think is his name and it was. It was cool. Cool fund light movie, but it had some good moments and you know it's a gender bender, so it's cool. It's it's hot right now, but it's early nineteen seventies, so it's fun. And then I wrapped up Bobby botching, unseen Bobby. Rigs. I watched it on saying, I know we reviewed on sane, but did. Yes, it was probably the heaviest thing that I watched all week it. So it was like a lighthearted thing, a heavy thing. And then I end the week with this heavy heavy movie. That's one of those movies that you could watch once and you're like, I couldn't even like try to watch that again. It was very well crafted and Soderbergh's genius and clear foyer is great in it. And you know the trailer really captured the essence of the things that are going on. I think in a trailer, you see the lockdown shots, and you know that it's, you know, there's some not a trick, but is there is a style to the photography of the cinematography of the peace. Yeah. And you know, it's kinda like that fish islands. It's not a full fish I, but it's it's definitely like a wide angle lens, the kind of distorts the image in the center. So there is some of that, but it's so locked down that you is the audience. You feel like you're stuck in this place with her with clarify, and as you're. In that situation in a trailer, yearly stuck in that situation for two minutes, and there's a lot of, you know, kinetic energy just from getting from the beginning to the end of the trailer. There are moments in hair where you're just stuck in a padded room with Clare foyer, and it's it's excruciating and the and the camera work, and the way that it's done it, it adds to the the pain of the situation and it's it's amazing. So you could check out letterbox for my full review of that as well. So it's well directed. Well-directed of the score is spot on. You know, it's it's a melancholy score. The camera work is is like in the company of men, which is a great old Neela Butte movie. So yeah, all around great, great movie, but just can't watch it more than once. Yeah, I don't know. I, I remember reviewing it and I think somewhere along the way we were saying that like I just don't need to see it. Like the the trailer gave me enough just to say, hey, you know, I get it. This woman's tormented by her Stocker, whatever. I don't know what you know. I mean, you know the story. Of course I haven't seen it is there is not. There is exactly. Imagination is at truth. Yeah. Yeah. And it was giving it was giving you a psychosis event almost right, like watching the trailers. So I can only imagine the show or the movie itself. But yeah, maybe I'll have to pull that one up and you know suffer through it. It's on Amazon prime. So it's easy to easy to stream and then my my star, my star sighting of the week I ran into Ken Marino Ken Marino was in Reno, nine one one, and a bunch of other TV shows and Percy was of course you. It's I ran into him at Starbucks and I was like, you know, I'd sure you did. I did. I did my line where I'm a big fan because I'm a fan of his comedy stuff. And I said, can I get a selfie and it was like sure, yeah. And and he was engaged. So I took a selfie with him and then I was getting waiting for my drink to come up my nitro Starbucks. And as I'm waiting there, he was just he did not reengage with his phone. So he and I were standing there kind of awkwardly and and I said, so what are you into right now? You know what I mean? So I was like, I'll have a conversation with you. That's cool. And he said he just finished. He just wrapped wrapped up promotion and releasing dog days. So dogged as rom com that I think we had mentioned briefly on the podcast as kind of Gary Marshall type movie with a big on samba cast and he was and he and I was like, oh, that's great and directed it. His wife wrote it and he said, I did it. You know, it's different than the other stuff that I'm used to because I wanted to share with my kids and my kids are too young and most of my stuff like. You know, drunk history on comedy central isn't for kids, you know? So I thought that was really awesome that you know he was getting to change his art. He was at a point his career. We could do art that he could share with his family and share with his children. And then on top of that, he was so open to like sharing this moment with a stranger. And I thought it's really, it's really nice to just talk to somebody it's completely disarming to have. You know somebody that you're a fan of have a conversation with associate. Very cool. But the one thing though you didn't, they speak here in. I've never junkies. Cats dropped head. Now I know I know God the truth, but you gotta do it. Okay. So we were, you said Amazon prime is unseen, and it's slow bar of entry and all that stuff. And and I couldn't agree more and moving into the streaming space of, yes, Amazon prime and Netflix, of course. I mean, those. The two biggest dreamers for now for this week, the ballot of, well, let me back up. So people might say, well, Jim, we didn't hear anything from you this week. Well, I really don't have much to say this has been quite weak, however, tomorrow which is going to be a week ago when this drops is the last delta to launch in history. Yeah, the first one was in nineteen eighty nine and the delta two is gun. You know, putting satellites into orbit and all this stuff, and it's the last one ever decommissioning the rocket tomorrow after tomorrow's lunch. Wow. Yeah. So you know my neighbor next door, he works on them and stuff builds rockets for living. You know, it's like we're living next rocket scientists and everything, but but I was asking like, well, why are they getting rid of it? You know? And he said, well, they have like big rockets to launch big things and they have like these efficient rockets to launch like everything else in the in the delta to kind of lands in the middle. So the delta twos. Lake too small to launch anything big and too inefficient to launch anything small. So they're just acts in the program and they're going to be doing, you know, like atlas, you know, and he mostly works in atlas, but they're going to be doing atlas rockets and delta fours, and whatever for the big stuff. And then SpaceX is in there somewhere, but there are another company, but yes. So anyway, tomorrow morning, five forty, six AM be up bright and early after just a few hours of sleep in a twelve and a twelve ounce, twelve and a half percent barley wine. So yeah, that's the exciting week. But after that, like let's talk about the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs. All right, love the name ballot of BUSTER Strug's. So it's kind of amazing and it's not. It's not shocking, but net flicks landed Joel and Ethan Coen and rightfully so they plastered Joel and Ethan, Coen's legacy sell right up at the top. Top of this trailer in the have to they have to, right. I mean, they paid top dollar for it. So the Venice film festival net flix film, it's funny. They do a legacy cell of no country for old men and true grit, I guess because it's a western that's kind of what I figured, but it really kind of hits you with like the farce of their other stuff. Kind of a lady killers raising Arizona it out of eat. It doesn't. I thought raising Arizona for sure. Yeah, it has like it has that showdown mentality that's raising Arizona, and I was not a fan of lady killers, but lady killers kind of had that that goofball comedy kind of stuff going on. And when he leaves his leaves himself in the dust and outline of dust self is still standing behind him. You know, like that's almost too much camp for this. You know, well, in both Clarisa knife thought the same thing we're watching it and we both said each other like, oh, brother. Chart though. Oh, brother. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's like, and then this trailer has like all the western movie tropes. I mean, the low cowboy the it starts off with the screaming hawk. It shows the wagon train the savage Indians. The sheriff fixed enacting an acting Justice through hangings monument valley. This actually does the same thing that last week's trailer did the the thunder road where you have an opening sequence in this one. It's the gentleman on the train or on the on the carriage with the audience, right? Last last week, it's the father daughter the way that the the lead character the way that the narrators kind of speaking to you is kind of this new trope or this new tool that trailer people are using of talking directly to the audience through characters. So I think that's something that's definitely become more of a acceptable way to be tongue in cheek and speak directly to the audience, and I love the things that he says. So it does. It's almost like he's the voice over guy. He's the voice over. I, but it's a character within a movie talking to other characters in the rice. So. Right. So it's forgiven that he's kind of being a little cheek ish. Yeah. And then you have the fancy gunslinger good guy in white, you know? And I mean, Tim, Tim, Blake Nelson is phenomenal in this role. So I'm bust Moster Scruggs. Yeah, I mean amazing, but it's just you have all the western tropes. You can't escape it, you know. But I mean in the funny thing about it was as we watch this, I didn't really. I didn't necessarily know initially that it was Netflix and I'm watching and stuff, and I'm telling because we watched it together. I'm like, you know, I wanna go see this theater and our little stick of coming to streaming and all that. And it's like select theaters Netflix, right? And I'm so wait. The one movie I wanna go see in the theater is actually only really going to be streaming. They flipped it on me. You know, it's I don't have to wait now for the Cup to streaming. It's just it's like guaranteed. This is a is a is a must watch, especially the bar is so low to get to it, you know? But so what do you think about that limited theater release? You think it's not going to get close to you? I was going to ask you about that. I thought about it a little bit, and I think that two things one. The theater release in remember you saying it in the past episodes of whatever. And it comes to the theater so they can enter into the Academy Award type, you know season? Yeah, this is the Venice film festival. So I think it has to be the attributes released in may and may already be out in theaters internationally, so or at least in the like their wards. And then the the other thing that I was wondering to the second part of that is, is it being released intermittently, intermittently? How did they say like like, I don't know what, what, what? What did you call it? Or how do they put it limited release or something? Yeah, I think limited releases, yeah. Okay. So how do they choose? Is it based on like the theaters with the best box office for opening movies or opening weekends? Or. I mean, you know, because they're not going to go somewhere where no one's going to show up. I mean, they gotta go where they're going to get a packed house. I mean, how do they do that? I think this is you know, one of those things that's LA New York. Kogyo it's got to be. That's the, that's the span that is going to be, and then it's going to be big markets few theaters, you know, right. But who knows who knows what Netflix is gonna do in the theater space there. I think they're battling to buy a small chain of theaters and they can release their own movies in their own theaters. They can hone the complete process. Yeah. I mean, it'll like show up in the arc light at Santa Monica and people just flock to it. You know? That'd be awesome. Are you a western guy? I am not. Yeah. I remember in the past, you were saying that you're not too much into westerns. I am for the right western thing. This seems really, really farcical so I don't know. Like Fran Franco's Datta series character. I mean, he's like almost too, too funny. You know, Tom waits giving you the emotional weather report women's about eight more cloud. Chad. Actually the whim. Gusty wind around the corner now. Cool. Cool out. But yeah, I mean, it's it's like you said, it's farcical. I think it's going to be comedic. It strikes me though. I haven't seen it, but it strikes me as the sisters brothers in a way. Yes. So the sister, Br sisters, brothers has it feels like it. It can have some more weight to it because of the cast that it shows to me. This rings closer two thousand ways to die in the west. Did you ever see that? No, I haven't. So that Seth MacFarlane. Who did you know family guy and. Thousand ways to die. Head west. Yeah, and it's a decent movie, but it's a western with Seth McFarlane as the lead and he doesn't do an accent and he's just playing Seth MacFarlane. So it's it's okay. It has. It has its moments, but it's almost too comedic to be a western and with the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs the sound design on the trailer is amazing. Yeah, with the banging you know, over and over when you know the guys dig in the whole, putting the chair down and you know there's all these different scenes in the same like rhythmic paying and what that reminds me of coming into the next one we're gonna talk about homecoming. Is that same kind of sound impact that that keeps just coming at you? Yeah, you know, and the scenes keep changing, but that sound keeps coming at you, you know, and keeps his drawing you back in because it's just the sound, you know, it's, it's just it's. Drives drives it. Yeah. No, I thought the sound design was was impressive. But overall, though, like, yeah, I mean, like I said, the entry to watch is low. How can you not watch it? I mean, Joel and Ethan Coen and they've had so many just amazing movies. Yeah, fantasy so many of them some better than others, but they're all great, you know. And I think this is just right there with what they've always been doing. Yeah. I mean, I think so Jones co and I think my top three because I can't really pick a favorite per se. I think the top three is raising a big lebowski and. Well, those are the top two. There was another third one in the out. Oh, brother. Oh, brother is a really, really good movie and it's and you could say it's not a western, but it has. It has like that dingy dusty appeal to me, but they have had a couple of movies that I just did not get into one that people kind of agree with the. The lady killers as I was explaining before and Fargo, which I did not like it all, but many, many people loved it. I love Fargo. Yeah. Yeah, you know which one was really bizarre was Barton Fink. Yeah, Barton Fink was another great movie perfectly placed in time and space, so. Right. But yeah, I would say raising her Zona. Amazing. Oh, brother were though, but big lebowski one of my top favorites. Yeah. And then, yeah, I do like Fargo. I mean, you know, I think that's, but maybe because like grew up in the northern midwest and like I'd go up in the area to go fishing and stuff, you know in Minnesota and Brainerd and like half my family's. A after every after every sentence. I just got into it because of that, I don't homesick or its nest Aljic for you. Yeah. I mean, then maybe that is the reason. I don't know if like having the guy killing his wife and just think. Whatever. But no. I mean, overall comb, brothers. Awesome. You know, makers filmmakers and yeah. How can you not the cast is fantastic to James, Franco, Liam Niessen. Yeah, it's it's amazing. It felt like we're, I think it's an anthology series. So I think we're going to have these little vignettes and put together in a movie, but we're gonna have I'm interested to see how they intercut the movies, whether they just cut back to the stage coach with the with the little narrator that we had the top or whether they're going to intercut all the stories and have them play out together. Yeah. So I mean, I'm assuming you're gonna watch it. I'm definitely going to watch it. Yeah. Yeah. Like, why wouldn't you? You know. All right, cool. So next on the list is what homecoming homecoming. Now I saw this. I saw this trailer come out this week and to me it was amazing. I guess because I had just started on saying earlier in the week and then finished up today, but. To me, it really it carries between the teaser. You know where she sitting in the room all by yourself and you kind of have that cool Radiohead song as you're just pushing into her. This was a complete one eighty. Don't you think it has. It's very a lot more going on a lot more of the disjointed -ness of what is going on in the actual space. You know a lot of clues, a lot of mystery and a different role for Julia Roberts. Don't you think? Well, when you say it's different, I mean, are you talking about when we did the? We did the teaser. The teaser trailer? Yeah, and it's not what I expected it to be. Exactly. Yeah. I mean it's police unexpected, right? Yeah. And I would say that the biggest thing about this one is it's a, I don't know. What would you say like government conspiracy thing more than it is guys coming home for therapy? Yeah. I mean, it really it ring. More like maniac, and I haven't seen any more about maniac another Netflix original big movie star cast, except that's a feature and this is a series. So again, mister robot is plastered in the legacy, sell. Sammy Smale is is a genius as far as I'm concerned, and he is telling the story of this woman and apparently the veteran and it's great. It's great to see the two of them. So like he wants to conform, right? What is his big line? He always wants to, you know, be be compliant in combat could be compliant and right, and she does, you know, it's it's a good. It's a feeling that she does not want to be compliant, but she has to play the game to get through the system or whatever it is to try to escape or get out. So I I'm interested. I'm, I'm amazed at Mr. Oba you know, I think knowing that story and having this from. The same person out of that same person's mind. I think it can take Julia Roberts to new places that you know her acting career peasant headed chance to explore episode thirty six was our Amazon trailer spectacle where we did the teaser and anybody who's interested in homecoming, I would recommend watching the teaser first and then watching the the official release trailer because it will blow your mind to see the second one as compared to the teaser. Right? And they of the rhythmic pounding that you were talking about from the ballot of, I don't even know. That's see. That's the problem with that long title again, the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs so that had the driving of the digging in the sound Zayn. And this one uses the the lines of dialogue and it uses this. We're here to help them to help them to help them you so freaky after that and that beautiful stairwell shot or multiple sterile shots where, yeah, you know where, you know, it's a typical, you know, every everybody that travels will find a stairwell that looks like that and take that top down, picture it at and do do some some fun artsy things with it. It's the photography trope. It isn't photography trope and I've fallen out to at many times. Thank to juxtaposed with the square one. I was like, that's beautiful to put those two side by side and and you know, you see the beautiful flowing of the of the circular staircase, and then it just and then you have the driving lines of dialogue being repeated over and over again. And then you show the jagged square staircase and it it throws you, you know. So I was like, oh, see, semi smell knows the trope plays the trope out. And then when your mind is you know, falling in love getting lulled into this sense of, I know what this is. He throws a square staircase at ya. He's, he throws a Escher an editor at you, and I'll tell you though, man, it creates such an uneasy, off-putting, hopelessness and despair feeling, you know, like, yeah, you're trapped in the conspiracy that these guys don't know they're trapped in, but she kind of knows they're trapped in and she's like complicit in the whole in the whole operation. But she. Really does want to help them. And the way I see it, I think you know, like whatever. I'm probably gonna watch it because I wanna find out and it looks really interesting, but it seems as though it's going to be a show that is going to like something went down the government's trying to like shut it up by drug in the memory out of these guys and under the guise of, you know. Therapy PTSD and you need help. So you're in this hospital and we're drugging you to forget, you know, and it's it's like the Manchurian candidate, right? No, them mentoring candidate was like brainwashing to be a assassin. Yeah, but I mean, it has that brainwashing pulling back the it has that that element of brainwashing military folks, I guess is the only similarity. Yeah. I mean, I didn't see it, but it almost would strike me as something like an unseen. Like you're stuck in the. You're stuck in the mental hospital, right? Yeah. And isn't that the great overhead shot of the of the trucker that van driving the street? You know. Oh, yeah, yeah. And then well, and the overhead shot of the van when she's like, running out trying to scape- and they come after her, whatever. Oh, yeah, yeah, I know it looks. It looks crazy. But what do you think about the fish clue? You know, the tank is empty and she doesn't want the fish and I love the ending when the fish. I just love that. I don't know why, but it's like, I don't even know it was going to ask you to, I don't know what the implied message is behind it. Maybe you could shed some your film school knowledge on us. I think it's it's definitely a throwback to the the line in the beginning where she says, I couldn't be bothered with it. I couldn't. It couldn't keep up with it or whatever she says, and then the the fish put it. I think it goes deeper though. The fish goes belly up and it's like, it's to me, it's like a hopelessness, but it's this beautiful hopelessness, you know? Yeah, I guess I don't know. I was thinking almost something to do along the lines of like the conspiracy like falling apart and like, you know, she gets trapped in it and I don't know. It's it. Yeah, I was maybe I was reading too much into it. No, I think the, you know, a lot of some people don't like trailers because it gives too much away and I think this the way that this is constructed it stirs it stirs the emotions. It sparks any kind of connect. Tive ideas that you may have of the plot, and it gives you these happy, happy places to put your thoughts and your projections into, and then we'll see how plays out, you know. Yeah. So Amazon prime. And when are you thinking I should say, when are you thinking? But are you thinking you're going to be watching this one? I'm definitely gonna watch this one. I'm hoping it will as we talked about, you know, Jack Ryan. I hope they have the series run as long as it needs to run and we just get to see like core key elements and it'll be great if it's another eight to ten episode, you know, forty two to sixty minute long per episode, whatever it needs to tell the each part of the story, and you know to just have it this tightly wound thing, I'll find a find that episode of mister robot and put a link to some of that in there. But there's this. There's some great Mr. of it episodes, but one in particular is just completely disjointed. And to me, those are my. Favorite of the episodes. The leftovers has one episode that's like that. And mister robot has one episode that's like that that sticks out and I want I'm interested to see Sam smell. Does it in this scenario where you don't have to do it? And I think you had to do other scenarios in this other series because you're filling time as an artist, you don't wanna just fill time. So you'll, if you're told to fill time, you'll do something artistically orthogonal to the series. So I'm interested to see if this has space for that or if it'd be needs it. Awesome. Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I could set up best. It releases. It looks like the November second yet when member. So yeah, I'm going to watch it too. I mean, and I like that. You know if it's somewhere around lake, say eight to ten episodes forty to fifty minutes per episode. Those always work best for his too because we get the boys to bed and we're, you know, then we want to get to bed and we gotta do all this stuff and we're cleaned up from dinner and everything and like forty, five minutes is like right in our wheelhouse doable. Totally doable. Oh yeah. Thirty minutes show. You could watch two hour long show. You're always like, man, we're gonna get to bed at nine. Oh five. I gotta get up way too early, you know. But before five minutes, bam. You're like, right. Anyway, so tonight last but not least is overlord overlord my. This is an older one. This has been out for a little while, but it is another another movie that's coming out in the space of early November. So November ninth, I believe, which is my birthday. Happy birthday. Yes, thank you. But it's a, it's a war movie and it and it has like this high quality war aesthetic. You know, it feels like saving private Ryan in the air, the top right? Doesn't it the whole first minute just plays out like a straight up war, draw war, drama movie. You know, you look at the name overlord and well, anybody who knows anything about DA knows that d day was up ration- overlord. I do not know that I did not know that that's what it was code name was operation overlord. Uh-huh. So overlord I'm like, what? The heck's overlord so I hit play. And the first thing you see are the cease seventeens with the invasion stripes. You know what I mean on the on the. On the wings and the body of the planes a hassle. I'm like, oh, overlord. There you go. It's a World War Two movie. You know, they're going into DD because you see the planes and the ships and it has that again, that band of brothers kind of thing, you know, or saving private Ryan, you know it has that feel to it. And the first thing I think is, well, they're not very accurate because the army was still segregated at the time. Well, the military was right. I didn't know that. Yeah. Yeah. So black and white were not mixed at, you know, that's just the way it was. The ski gear Mun. Okay. Yeah, that makes you know. And then you had to read tales. Well, then you had like the band of brothers, you know, like the hundred and first airborne and hit a lot. I mean, were you know all the units but, but like it was white and black and no and mixed, you know? And then when you see how don't even know how to pronounce his name, what is it like Jovan adept. Oh, I don't know. You know, that's that's put your name every week. You'll be thing. Yeah, we do it every Jovan adept, but anyway anyway. So he's sitting there and he's in you, here's like voice over. You know, just three months ago. I was like cutting grass, and then the mailman showed up and here I am, you know, and he does thing and and but I was like, well, they got that wrong, you know. And because like black and white soldiers weren't mixed at the time. But anyway, so whatever I'll give it a pass. You know, whatever, it's it's the modern era and they're, you know, it's a period piece. Then all of a sudden you see the bullets come streak through the aircraft that you know the fuselage. He goes flying out to thing, blows up. I mean, what a water landing? I mean, totally cool, but still straightforward still a straightforward war movie. Right? So I'm not there yet. So he goes doing his thing. No, you know, you think? Okay. And then the one guy who's in oranges, new black, and he's also in Jack Ryan, and now he's in this one. The Italian kid, John, Mark, Margo hood has jar very, is John Margarito. Yeah. Yeah. So you know, he's in this too, and you hear him, welcome to France, you know, and all this stuff. And you're still thinking like, okay, you know, they're like Saint Mary lease or something, you know, and and then all of a sudden they see how we gotta go check out the compound. I remember when you were on the t. fo- podcast, you said like one of the tropes is every trailer has a turn. Yeah, this couldn't turn more hundred eighty degrees from what you believed you were watching. You know what I mean? All of a sudden it turns into like a video game. Doom. I was thinking like far criers. Okay. You know, I played far cry and far cry was like this thing where it was like an island of med scientists and they had human DNA mixed with like Abe DNA to make like super soldiers. And then you phoned yourself in a crashed airplane or whatever on this island and all of a sudden these like mad humanoid apes are coming at you. That's totally with the strikes me as yeah. And then when they and then they'll ACDC drops ELS bells. Yeah. And you're just like, well, that is nothing to do with like a period piece. Like I said, man, that flip hundred eighty degrees from what you believed you were going to watch, right. Yeah, it's it's an exciting way to break into the the story. It's nice if you haven't heard anything of it, but I guess I had heard a little bit of it before I seen it. J.j Abrams has a universe that he's created called the Cloverfield universe. And he took a script and a book called the God particle. And he turned it into the Cloverfield paradox, which is the movie that they released on Super Bowl day, and they started promoting it on Super Bowl days of the kind of just dropped it in the same day that they started promoting it and then the Cloverfield and in the Cloverfield lane ten Cloverfield lane with John Goodman. So there's a whole series of movies that are within this universe, and a lot of people have talked about overlord is being this prequel to the Cloverfield universe. Okay. And I don't know. It kind of has its feels more like it's chemical knots. So much alien and to me clover fields more alien, but it has that well, this seems that the seems like biologic or Mickle. Hemicycle biological. It's like human experimentation, very World War Two ish, which I think you know that even even wonder, woman played around a little bit with that experimentation kind of stuff. So I agree, it's, it's a monster movie, kind of it falls into that space. It's it's interesting it has. It has a new hit hip, take on, you know your war movie. So it's not the first of its kind, but I appreciate the effort and the things that they're trying to pull off here. Did it strike you a little bit? I mean, it did me as a Quinton turn Tino kind of movie. Yeah, I guess so. Glorious bastards is is obviously it's much different, but I don't know. I just had that feel to it. Well, I mean when these characters talk it just that anytime character talks in Quintin movie, you know, from their breath even before they say a word, you know, by the look of Brad Pitt over to somebody else that it's Quinter did Michael mad. Listen, Reservoir Dogs. Yeah. Yeah, you know, I mean, Quentin Tarantino directs down to the word, so when Quinn territory to write something it is going to be performed to his liking, you know, to the to the word because he wrote it to the word. And I think this does not have the the weight to the dialogue, the Quintin a movie has. So that's what completely turns me off to the whole idea of that. Gotcha. You know, getting into the dialogue though, I mean when they say, you know, a thousand years soldier for thousand year Reich, you know, I mean, they do have some lines in there that are very specific, yeah, reasoning behind the whole experimentation. And then they have the the German mad scientist trope Raith white lab coat the round Lassus, the blonde hair looking very likes mug. Very area very area. And yeah. Yeah, you know what I mean? But I don't know. I'm probably not gonna see this. Probably not. I'm definitely not going to see this one. I wanted to see this one. I wanted to like it more, but I too. I don't think I'm gonna see. Yeah, this is. I mean, it just it goes a little bit over the top as far as like the monsters. I don't know. You know they get into, I think they're trying a little bit, like you said, the the, the quitting turned Tino lines, directing down to the words. And when they ask, you know, like what's like, what is it again? Jovan DEP. Oh, like what's behind the wall. And they hear the voice. They've been delivered a purpose. It's like, I think that they're, they're trying to get to that Tarantino directing, but I don't know if they're making it there. You know in and as you're saying, I don't think they are. Yeah, I think the script probably falls a little short of it, but I, I'm still interested in it. I don't believe it will fit within the the rich tapestry of viewing that I have in store for myself. Yeah, there's so many things to watch and then I don't know. I mean, I'm curious in the j.j Abrams world you're talking about what was it called? The Cloverfield Cloverfield. Yeah. I mean, I'm interested in that, but no, overall, I mean, it looked interesting and I, I'd like the, you know, I'm sure that the soundtrack is going to be more of that, like contemporary soundtrack. Hard rack. Yeah. And like when you're looking at a God, I'm going to put your this one filled Ollivier. But I think she's the one with the flame thrower want to flame thrower in them, and it looks amazing which she's like blow and people with the flame thrower. I don't know like we're terrible at name. Yeah, I dismiss Oliver. Yes, I see what you're saying. Or was it. Mathiot hell Leyland they cordona. Hilali me Elaine. What? Where where are you down? I don't even see you. Oh, Helen, that's just Helen. Just say Helen Cardona. What are those accents on the ease? I don't know. Aleni Cardona. Yeah, she speaks seven languages. So yeah, she's speaks English better than the other seven. I can't. Yes, that's like that's like what people say, you know, whatever, like Arnold Schwarzenegger sounds dumb. The way speaks English. It's like, yeah, but his English his way better than your Austrian. Or German, or whatever the heck Elsies them all. But yeah, overall, though, I mean, it looks like it's going to be one of those sitting. The seats at the edgier seat action packed. Everything's blowing up. You know, you don't know what around the turn monsters jumping out. It's going to be like the none where I don't have to watch it to the end. But like when the thing happens, the sounds going to happen to mmediately at that moment and make you jump jump. Yeah. Yeah. It's going to be one of those kind of movies, you know. And I don't know. Like overall, I don't know if they're advertising to me necessarily, or it's more of like young twenties. Late teenager audience. Yeah. So anyway, that's where I met with it. I'm pretty much done. May two very different, very different movies this week, our movies and a couple of at a TV show. So I mean, I think the big thing is homecoming is very different than what the original teaser trailer had or not the original teaser trailer, but the but the teaser trailer had right and God. He said, it's a long name. Yeah, the Ballard of BUSTER Scruggs. I know these names are just bizarre sometimes, but who knows? Maybe BUSTER Scruggs will become a household name. Yeah, but it just strikes me as, I don't know. Just like I don't wanna say comedic. They don't think comedic is a good word, but but it strikes me as like the perfect western. That's going to tell a fun story with all the things you would expect out of a western kind of light light hearted would say, yeah, comedic and you know, like you look at Westworld rate, do you want the white hat or black cat? You know, and here comes busters Scruggs. What's his name? What does it again? I had it. Yeah, Tim, Blake Nelson. Luster, screw. Yeah. Here comes Tim, Blake Nelson with his white hat and James Franco with his black cat, and it looks like the like, you know, the little little stick is going to be that James Franco is just going to be like, you know, in the gallows over and over and over, you know, and he's going to somehow a scape hanging over and over first time. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Like he's just been there over and over and the other guys like, don't worry. We'll get out of this. I've been here before, you know. Yeah. All right. So how's it? How did that beer finish up with you? Did not sit well. I'll have to say like, you know, you might say ten dollars for one twelve ounce bottle is expensive, but I would definitely say that ten dollars for one twelve ounce bottle should be shared between three gentlemen. It is strong. I still have a full. Well, I've had a snifter here's you could see, but I've been filling the snifter as been going and, oh my God get close out there to help you finish it. Yeah. I mean, it's, it's it's one to share with people because it's heavy duty, man, twelve, and a half percent. But the flavors like it's just like lays like it's like a log comes into your mouth and just lays in there. You know. It's good. I mean, it's very good. It's just twelve ounces too much for one person to handle. Wake up the boys have them have a little sip baby. You wanna sit. This'll put you to sleep, but I don't need to wake up. I would do that if they couldn't go to bed. But yeah, I mean, I'm definitely good buzz from this thing, man. It's like, I'm not even done yet, geez. All right. Awesome. Oh one more thing. I guess a little programming. Note programming. Note this upcoming weekend. I will be on a panel c. sun. Has the entertainment industry institute onset. We'll see son is California State University Northridge? Yes. Almo- mater and mine is well, so you got what your NBA there. I got my MBA there and they have a entertainment industry institute which they're kicking up this September twenty second.

I don't know a couple of hundred years old, you know, and all this stuff and and they still, I mean, I'm not Catholic, but they still conduct all these Catholic masses and everything except for the LA Perouse emission here lompoc which is state historic park, and they have like reenactments of the time.
