A highlight from 95 - Greyscale's Legal Slam, Musk's Crypto Tease & BitBoy's Dramatic Exit: Crypto's Tumultuous Week
"Welcome to the Crypto Curious podcast, proudly brought to you by the Bamboo app. Crypto Curious is your go -to source for all things cryptocurrency, whether you're a seasoned pro or new to the world of crypto, we've got you covered. Each week we'll break down the top news stories of the past seven days, giving you the information you need to stay on top of the latest trends and developments. Plus we'll share quick bites of news and insights that you won't want to miss. If you're new to the world of crypto, we recommend starting in our early episodes where we break down the basics and give you a solid foundation to understand the crypto world. Join us as we explore the ever evolving world of cryptocurrency and educate ourselves along the way. On today's episode, we'll talk about the SEC's loss in court to grayscale and the Spot ETF deadline news. Twitter or X as it's now known's application for a digital currency license, as well as his own brand for some less than honest behavior, plus so much in the short, sharp news bites. So please stay around to the end. My name's Tracy and I'm joined by Blake and Craig for this week's crypto catch up. Hey guys, how are you going? Very well, Trace. How are you? Very well. How are you going, Craig? Good, thanks. My favorite topic today, regulation, but we'll get into it. It's always some regulation talk, but I mean, you know what? It's getting interesting because it's about ETFs and exciting things that mean crypto pumps down the way. So should we crack in? Not financial advice. Not financial advice, never financial advice. Let's do it because this news broke basically after we finished recording last week. The biggest news of the past seven days was another crushing defeat to Gary Gensler and the SEC, this time against grayscale investment funds. The US federal court ruled that the SEC acted unfairly in denying grayscale's request to turn its grayscale Bitcoin trust product into an ETF. So the long awaited decision provided a pump to the prices across the board in the crypto market and even the crypto related public equities like Coinbase got a bit of a pump. So everyone was pretty excited, weren't they, Blake? That's right. So just for a little bit of context, grayscale Investment Trust, I think holds currently three to five percent of all the Bitcoins. And it's basically like an investment fund that they're looking to get listed on the Nasdaq to be freely traded and it's going to attract a lot of capital to the space. And, you know, this was favourable because, you know, previously the SEC had just denied the application and now the court has ruled that they've unfairly made that denial. So this is very, very positive for the sector. Not only does this help grayscale's case, but likely to help other applications for the Bitcoin ETFs. And as we know, there's about seven others that are currently or maybe even more that are going through the process of trying to get approved for a spot Bitcoin ETF. So not really exciting stuff, but I must say the SEC will fight tooth and nail to continue to kick this down the road with every lever that they have available to them. And that looks like what they've done here. They've kicked the can down the road another 30 days before they have to make a decision. I have no doubt they'll be doing it again. But since that news, the SEC has come out and said they're delaying all applicants of the Bitcoin ETF until October. So a few weeks ago, we reported on ARK Invest, they were the only one that copped the delay, but turns out all of them will now cop the delay. So this rained on the parade somewhat, and the short -lived pump was, what, two or three days worth, and then it just came back down to where it was before. So of a pump and dump chase. Yeah, so just going back to grayscale and what that means, their petition, they've been granted a petition for review. And what this means is the SEC now needs to review the application again and either accept the application or pick a different reason to deny the application, which will drag this out even longer, appeal the court's decision and try and get a end back review, which is apparently a fancy legal term. So that's the three options there. But, you know, either way, like Blake said, big win for the industry. And I think this just proves the fact that the SEC isn't the be all and end all. You know, you can fight this. Yeah, and it's really great to see that the court system has a level of independence here that hasn't politicised other government factions. And the market is still so sensitive on this news, like this came out, bam, five percent pump, then the other thing came out, five percent decline. So the market just seems like we're waiting on what direction to take and any of these catalysts are providing, you know, huge movements. And like we said, now it's just been the can has been kicked down the road a little further, another 30 days into mid -October until we'll have any more information and we will keep a keen eye on that, folks. Moving on, Elon Musk's ex, formerly known as Twitter, moves closer to crypto payments with a new state licence being granted. Regulators from Rhode Island have approved X's application for a currency transmitter licence over the last week, Craig. Yeah, so Elon's spoken about making X a WeChat sort of application, which of course involves payments. But here's what you need to know about this scenario. So the licence required for companies conducting financial activities on behalf of users sending and receiving money, the licence lets companies store, transact and exchange digital assets and the licence also includes service providers like crypto wallets, payment processes and exchanges. So he's taking small steps to integrating crypto in the platform. And as we know, I don't want to be a sceptic or a conspiracy theorist, but he is bullish on Doge and he has spoken about or joked about integrating Doge. So it could be that obvious trace. What are your thoughts, Blaine? Yeah, that's right. Initially, I think it's just going to be regular payments, but over time, I think it makes sense for them to also integrate cryptocurrency payments as well. We know Elon is fond of crypto, so it just makes sense. And I think this is a big win. But, you know, there is there's lots of competition out there. There's CashApp, VMO, there's VMO, PayPal. Yeah, that all provide cryptocurrency trading and investing and buying and transferring. But I suppose what's different about X's proposition is that it's also a social media platform. And this is, you know, I think maybe Meta or previously Facebook maybe approached it a little bit wrong. With Libra. Yeah, with Libra. And it sounds like Elon will execute. You know, he's the founder of PayPal. He understands internet banking and payments. And I think he'll execute like he executes on everything else. Yeah. So this is important and necessary in the steps forward that Elon is pushing for X to become the everything app, which he's he's pushing for. And we'd expect crypto and fiat payments to become part of that. And you've mentioned obviously a minute ago, Craig Doge, he's you know, he loves. So I think everyone's talk recently has been when he does this, what will be the tokens in there? Because everyone said X and now there's XRP and Doge. And he's even hinted at Shiba at some point. So there's the guess now. What will be the crypto token that he will use? Let us know, folks. Send us an email. Well, Trace, what do you think? Do you think you might allocate some cash to Doge after this news? You know what? Not financial advice, folks. But I do potentially think Doge and we do have a little side bet going with our with our friends at Equity Mates with Bryce and Alec. And we did say at the start of the year that we did tongue in cheek think Doge might be one of the best performing assets of the year. There's a bit of a joke. Look, I don't know that he'll be making any head roads into this by the end of the year. Like Blake said, I think it's going to be fiat first and we won't see any cryptocurrency trading or being used on the X app for quite some time. But my money would be on Doge. But he's got the license. So it is going to happen eventually. You know, as we know, the favorite bull market indicator for me is when Doge has a pump. That's when you know that we're back. So, yeah, let's keep an eye on it. But then again, Trace, Doge didn't move at all after this news. Which I thought was very surprising. It hasn't on a lot of his comments recently. Gone are the days of Saturday Night Live where he's on there and we have like a 20 percent pump. It's just not like that anymore. Good times. Good times. Let's move on boys. It feels like there's been a long list of shady crypto characters getting their comeuppance this past year. Doquan, SBF and a few other dudes. But there's one who's facing his consequences over this past week. Ben Armstrong, also known as BitBoy, has been ousted from his own brand. Ben was removed from BitBoy Crypto by parent company BJ Investment Holdings due to alleged substance abuse and harm to employees and the community. Craig, what else do we know? Yeah, so BitBoy Crypto, he's been in hot water for a long time. He actually had his media kit leaked, which actually was giving projects prices on what sort of promotion that he would give them. But what we can gather from information that's been filtered out by the staff and insiders is they've kicked him out for various reasons, harm to employees. But he's also done extensive promotion of unvetted tokens. He had a lack of transparency regarding his personal holdings. And he promoted coins and tokens in his video only to sell them after his viewers started buying without disclosing his intentions. So typical grifter. And you know, it's good that these guys are getting weeded out. And look, we were talking about this. He was obviously, for those who might have remembered him off, chasing down Sam Bankman -Fried as the big baddie member. He went over there. Yeah, he was the hero. And even the hero is a scammer. And you might recall, folks, we talked about Ben .eth token a little while ago, which popped up and he shilled that one to his users. And that was a bit of a nail in the coffin, too, because that didn't go too well. But the proof is in the pudding here. We look at his views and they were up around 250 ,000 a year ago. They went down to 120 ,000. And you know, the last six months, he's only getting 20 ,000 views. He lost his audience. They just lost trust in him because of these pump and dumps. So, you know, it's good to kind of shake out this kind of behavior from the market. And I just wanted to put it to you both that I feel that, unfortunately, we'll see a fresh bunch of this coming through. A hundred percent. Because we're going to get, you know, an influx of new retail people coming through that don't know what to look out for. And there'll be another BitBoy Ben coming up and doing the same thing. Yeah, that's definitely one of the challenges. We've been in the space for a little while and we see these characters come in and out of the sector and it's quite obvious, you know, they all display similar traits about their behavior and how they project in the marketplace. And, you know, they gather big followings and it's very hard to convey to people that follow them that, you know, they might not have the best intentions or, you know, they might be doing something against, you know, what they say that they're doing. So, yeah, I think you're right. Trace, more and more will come through, more will gain popularity with new narratives and then churn out, hopefully sooner rather than later. It's a bit of a double -edged sword because, you know, back in the bull market, BitBoy would be shilling these projects that would go to do ridiculous percentage numbers because people are following the trade. And then obviously they're the ones that pump the hardest, but also the ones that dump the hardest. But BitBoy is obviously laughing because he's selling into his audience. As you mentioned, Trace, there's decrease in views like probably to do with the market cycle as well. Like the big guys, like even locally, like the Pacino Brothers, you know, they produce some amazing content over the last bear market and now the next bull market, they've obviously become popular. So there'll be a bunch of new people now that are making content right now that will become very popular. And in saying that, though, there's great content. You can tell which ones are good and which ones not. Like I just mentioned the Pacino Boys. They're very technical. They talk about Bitcoin and ETH, but someone like BitBoy, which is shilling Ben token, like big red flags. And, you know, I'm really a big fan of Guy from the Coin Bureau. He doesn't shill anything. He just gives you good information, you know. And Ben Cowan, he just talks about the big two. He's very technical as well. And that's it. And we're all about the big two as well. Bitcoin and Ethereum. We talk about all these other coins on here, but really for noobs getting in, even for not noobs, like 75 percent of my portfolio is Bitcoin, Ethereum. OK, with that, let's go to a break. When we come back, a short, sharp news bites.

"During the show i feel bad for you having to listen it's just you know it's part of my thing whatever i just i'm not i can't sing to save my life so i was talking about the great american hero you know believe it or not walking on air so byron sends me a facebook message dan that was shockingly good i think he's being nice uh but jim during the break i love that show everybody loved that show so great growing up i used to look forward to it but it was on wednesday or thursday i don't remember but it was if you if you're probably under the age of like 20 you have no idea talking what about but uh just a couple of notes before i get to why the bongino rule was important on the trump leak the audio tapes leak for one reason and one reason only the damaged trump yeah i i of course but that's not the real reason they leak the reason these audio tapes of trump leaked and the bongino rule was in effect was because the hunter biden story is now completely out of control it's out of control folks they they they've lost but i mean it in a technical sense they've lost control of how many people have contacted the information and let me just explain it in a simple way you rob a bank right you have a getaway driver and someone who finances the operation like heat style with al pacino and them the hero okay there's like seven or eight contact points of people who know you're the guilty party that's why they whack that guy wayne grow in the movie heat because they can't control him because he's a lunatic he shoots the guy remember wayne grody to whack them and they or you try to whack them in there they wind up catching them later you know what i'm talking about right liberals have lost control folks people in the media they thought they control cbs are now airing the whistleblower the whistleblower says there are more whistleblowers the business partners are speaking out they've totally lost control i'm going to get to them that's why obviously why they launched the trump audio tape of him in this iran document but biden's giving a speech now in chicago that is in my opinion the most embarrassing of his president jim's laughing right now because we're still listening to it it is an it is such an endless tirade of just this crap now yelling again he's probably crapping himself they standing by with the white he looks like he just took dump on himself this guy did you see that did he not just look like he crapped himself no no he doesn't know where to go what do you mean does he know where to go now he's whispering like creepy reverend cain i mean you could do a play by play on this lunatic all day jay he's not going to know where he's going when it's over he's going to do that uncomfortable sprint there's a is he done there's a ten percent chance and i hope it was on his face i don't want to see the guy here he is he's probably saluting someone who thinks he's in the military per person he doesn't know what he's doing he's now he's having a hard time lifting his hand here he goes there's the shuffle you see the shuffle he did the little shuffle there oh he there is someone waved him off stage so now he knows where to go okay the speech is so bad oh no he didn't know where to go did you catch him you see what he just did i can't i can't i can't do this you're watching this live he's jim you saw it right he's going off the stage he looks like he makes it and he walks down the hallway sir wrong way we're going this way the dude never knows where he's going folks ever i don't know a lot but i know this i freaking did this for a living i'm i'm telling you i'm i'm telling you relax him later i'm telling you they get a thing on what to do biden can never walk off a stage ever i've never seen anything like this ever he almost made it and he still went the wrong way but he gave this i got like mucus i'm laughing so on he can never get off the stage the biden speech was so riddled with garbage lies which ones stand trickled down you could almost predict it the eight percent fake tax rate for billionaires did he mention the 50 companies that pay no taxes he gives they're all lies they're all jim is good because the never things happened that show is not going to be able to put this in one single episode jim has been kind enough to contact the production staff for this famous show and they said unbelievable is a movie in the works a full length feature movie of things that never happened and yesterday be a good start so into you gotta the tune radio show tomorrow to hear the first full length feature of things that never happened based on one speech and getting back to the hunter biden case folks they've lost control you having been a federal investigator one of the things you do is say we used to investigate counterfeit and counterfeit money obviously and the thing about counterfeit money investigations is they resemble drug investigations usually have a supplier you have a printer who's like the drug maker they print the money and you usually have networks and mules matter of fact some of the traffickers counterfeit over the southern border most notably the super note which came from a different which was a really good counterfeit most of those traffickers were also trafficking drugs so they remember they resemble drug investigations and the way to pick apart the circles of counterfeiters and drug investigations to is you just pick the weakest link it's usually some tweaker or some guy who's really like lost control of himself he's so addicted to the money or the drugs that they just can't they can't they'll do anything like to get out of jail so you just pick off that guy first there's always a weak link the problem with the Biden crime family is they got so greedy that they expanded their circle past the network

"My cigar is lit. My red wine is poured. Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Fleming. Al Pacino is out here giving these youngsters a run for their money as the 82 -year -old Scarface actor has announced that his 29 -year -old girlfriend Nora is Alfala pregnant with his fourth child. These two have been an item since 2022 and she's also dated Mick Jagger and she has been romantically linked to Clint Eastwood but, you know, that has not been confirmed. She actually said that she never dated Clint Eastwood, so I just want to put that out there. Robert De Niro, who fathered a child at 79, has nothing on Al Pacino. Now, De Niro recently welcomed baby number seven. I'm starting to wonder if these two legendary actors are competing for Nick Cannon's title, but on a serious note, congratulations to Al Pacino. His new bundle of joy will join his three other children. He shares Julie Pacino 33 with ex Jan Tarant as well as Anton Pacino 22 and Olivia Pacino 22 with ex Beverly D 'Angelo. The Godfather star has maintained a close connection with his children, noting that he wanted to be different from what his father was. He says that his father left him and his mother when he was only two years old. So, congratulations to Al Pacino. I don't know, man, these guys are definitely older men. Usually when a woman has children, you know, after the age of, say, you know, 40 or 50, people always think high -risk pregnancy, you know, they think about the child, but these men like Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are giving a pat on the back, like, keep going, have 20 or 30 kids. I mean, my thing is, you know, these kids are, you know, obviously at 82, is Al Pacino going to be able to, you know, be a productive father, to be a great father, to, you know, this new baby. That's something to think about, but obviously, you know, he is a proud dad, so we are congratulating Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. They both have just welcomed new children, De Niro at 79 and Al Pacino at 82. Those are trending stories. That is what everyone is talking about. These men obviously feel like, you know, fatherhood doesn't have an age limit, so to each his own.

Some Big Names Were Offered Roles "Beverly Hills Cop"
"Script was around Hollywood for about 7 years before it was actually greenlit. And let's talk about some of the choices of who was going to play axel F go ahead, Chris. Okay, well, the biggest one was, of course, the great Sylvester Stallone. Yes. He was going to play excellent. And he wanted to make this movie into something far more serious. And I mean, obviously everybody involved in the project was like, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. This is not a this is a comedy. This is not going to be like a dangerous film. You've got to have this cute little wink with the blond here in the car. You know what I mean? Everything has to have a wink to it. Everything has to be a bit of fun. Yes. No. But you know what I think this is my theory, I think that Sylvester Sloane looked back on this film and said he missed out on something. I think in his mind he thought he missed out on something not doing the comedic version because he did end up doing the serious version of Beverly Hills cup, which was called cobra. He made his own film called cobra. Right, so go ahead. Well, I think that he felt like he missed out on doing the comedic Beverly Hills cop version, and he realized it was a great film. So then he went ahead and he did a film called demolition man, which was a much lighter film, but very similar to Beverly Hills cop when you think about it. A movie which, if you watch it now, has predicted a lot of the things that we now see as wokeness. If you don't remember demolition man, if you thought it was, you know, wasn't funny. Watch it now, and you will think that it was the script was written by Nostradamus. So here's the development history of this movie. So the people they consider didn't offer it to, but they considered for axel foley Al Pacino and James Caan, they offered it to Mickey Rourke, they paid him $400,000 not to do any movies and keep him on ice. That expired and he said, guys, I'm going to keep your money but goodbye. Then they offered it to Harrison Ford. He refused Harrison Ford and along comes Stallone and Stallone. Well, like he does with many things, he just rewrote the whole script. He wanted to quadruple the budget, the end scene would have been him driving playing chicken in a Maserati with an 18 Wheeler. They said, we've only got $12 million. We can't make this movie, and they finally placated him and they said, okay, we'll make a movie where you're like, you know, fine machine guns and cleaning the city up. But it's going to be a different movie. That was cobra. I think we have the post of cobra. A very different movie, not with a lot of humor in it.

And I'm so <Speech_Male> glad I didn't do that. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Because I took the journey <Speech_Male> that I wanted to <Speech_Male> take, you know, and even <Speech_Male> though the corporate spine <Speech_Male> wasn't really <Speech_Male> what I wanted <Speech_Male> to do, <Speech_Male> it certainly <Speech_Male> made for a fascinating <Speech_Male> life and <Speech_Male> now I've been able <Speech_Male> to take <Speech_Male> that and turn it into <Speech_Male> a piece of art, this <Speech_Male> book, <Speech_Male> and so that <Speech_Male> would be my big <Speech_Male> takeaway for <Speech_Male> readers, especially <Speech_Male> after COVID, right? <Speech_Male> Life is short. <Speech_Male> Do what you want to do. <Speech_Male> Don't do <Speech_Male> what your father wants you to <Speech_Male> do.

When will <Speech_Male> you know about <SpeakerChange> that? <Speech_Male> Well, <Speech_Male> it's pretty far along. You know, <Speech_Male> we have a show runner. <Speech_Male> There's a production company <Speech_Male> behind <SpeakerChange> it. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> The proverbial, <Speech_Male> I don't count my <Speech_Male> chickens until <Speech_Male> I'm on the set, <Speech_Male> and there's <Speech_Male> a chair that says <Speech_Male> Robert kurb <Speech_Male> on it. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> it's pretty far. <Speech_Male> It's pretty far down <Speech_Male> the road. <SpeakerChange> So I don't <Speech_Male> know when, you know, <Speech_Male> when the <Speech_Male> shooting per se <Speech_Male> would start, <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> if things go well, <Speech_Male> I'd say, you know, <Speech_Male> in about a year's <Speech_Male> time, <Speech_Male> there would be a ruse <Speech_Male> TV series <Speech_Male> that people <SpeakerChange> could watch.
"pacino" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Those of you keeping track, Jack launched it. So that's drinking game number one. That strength that you're going. It's fantastic that you're saying this, Jack, because you live through it. And that's what our whole podcast is about. We want people telling their own stories. But the fact that there's people out here in the United States that are supporting communism, that's what communism is, right? That was a perfect example. Exactly. It really, so many, so many things like that. And it was just sad. But getting back to how I guess I got involved in law enforcement, I didn't give it a thought. I went to high school. I got a scholarship playing football. I went to Texas and there what happened is to change the coaching staff at west sustained in Texas. And Dwayne Tom is in all those guys. So they changed the coaching staff because they were hiring too many minorities putting him as athletes and they were not having local folks players. So I wound up leaving there. I went to a junior college in New York and then from there I went to the university of Richmond. Now, all I did was the spiders, all I ever wanted to do. Richmond spiders. Richmond's. And here I am from The Bronx, Cuban, and Richmond. I love Richmond. Richmond was nice. They thought I was like Ricky Ricardo. You're from New York. You carry a gun? Yeah, you know, whatever they want to hear, but everybody was very nice there. So what happened was at Richmond is we were playing the game and before every game, the coach to keep us from staying out of trouble would take to see a movie. At that time it was cervical. So I went to see cervical with Al Pacino, which I recommend everyone to see. Just a fantastic, and then I realized, was that moment where I said, this is what I want to be. I want to be in law enforcement. I want to be NYPD. I want to be this guy because he works on the cover and all that. That was it. I was set for light. This is what I want to pursue. But then me and another Cuban brother of mine that play football at Richmond. There was actually two Cubans being and my buddy Ramon, we went and applied, well, forget about the NYPD. Let's apply for the best law enforcement agency in the world. See, that hurts you guys, right? Say after me. The best law enforcement when they just see it in the world.

AJ Reflects on Where His Path Diverged From His Best Friend Ronnie
"Ronnie at this point was doing very well with let's call it illicit illicit sales of recreational drugs, okay? He got to be pretty big around the neighborhood because of a certain mafiosa who lived in down on the cutter court of mister Moretti. And mister Moretti employed a lot of young guys who wanted to go that route. I didn't want to go that route. Ronnie went that route. And I've told this story before in that me and Ronnie did everything together. In fact, we went and saw the movie Scarface together. The only difference was when the movie ended, Ronnie wanted to be Tony Montana, and I wanted to be Al Pacino. And we kind of both got what we wanted to a degree.

So it's like they're very much on the same level. The cat and mouse game between Pacino and De Niro is tremendous. Yeah. And it's like, and it culminates in the end where it's like, you know, it's very appropriate that Pacino more so than either of the spouses or whatever it's like they're there for each other at the end. Well, ultimately, De Niro was caught by his own hubris of like he couldn't, he would have gotten away if he hadn't taken the bait of killing the snitch. Yeah. Pride. Yeah, it was his own, he just can't do it. I gotta kill him. I kill him. He turns around and he goes, he's like, we're taking one quick detour..

For the masterpieces that they've made Martin Scorsese, um movies that are Involving with the Mafia. Uh, it seems like that that's their stand out. Performances and what they remembered the most for I just think that the stories need to be told, will always be told. And no matter how many different times or different ways you splice it, um There will be an audience for this genre. Uh, I just think that You try to be as authentic as possible, and, uh, You know you don't glorify it. You make it for what it is, and, uh, that's what I try to do Best is to just make these characters exactly kind of the way they really are. I'm not trying to glorify anything. Uh, and it's not just about the Mafia. It's about time. It's about The time when people converse star Stoops played stickball in the street. Uh, went out to run to the ice cream truck. The kids in front of the hydrants. Different time, a time where people interacted And, uh, In a different way. Yes, without it. I think people miss that. More than anything. The focus is not just a Mafia. It's the time period. Of what it was like when you sat on your stoop and you talk to your neighbors, and you know that feeling.

Listen, we have about two minutes left. But I want to bring bring the attention to something that I thought was actually really interesting. I don't know if it's because I'm so emotionally attached to things. But Gravesend is in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn and the block you grew up on was West Street, which you also uses the name of your film company, West Street Productions, and I thought that was so telling of. How can Did you truly are to your childhood and to your point, You know, this is bringing you back to a culture a time. Where, like you said. It's not just about the Mafia. It's about sitting together at the table on a Sunday. It's a lot of it's a lot of the cultures and traditions that are centered around Mafia life, so to speak, but that also kind of ties back into Italian culture of, you know, dressing up on Sundays and going to church and and making sure that everybody's at the table at a certain point in time to eat meals together. That also kind of you know, translates very nicely into grave said because you incorporate that which I think is very important.

"He's Jack Harris. She is Katie Pacino and I'm Aaron Jacobson. We had attorney Jeff Childers on yesterday He had filed the lawsuit against the Paul County, the poke school district on behalf of 46, parents and Children, arguing the mask policy has been harmful. Well yesterday, the Polk County School board in Pinellas County School Board they both voted unanimously to lift the requirement that students in kindergarten and higher grades wear a face mask and that's effective yesterday. So that is in place right now. Now, the CDC had recommended continued masking through the end of the school year to slow the spread of Covid 19. Now, Jack, we had the attorney Jeff Children's on yesterday. And you would think with this decision in this vote from the Polk County School Board and Pinellas County School board, But more importantly for the lawsuit, Polk County you would think the lawsuit would go away. Well, not so fast. Jeff chilled, Er said. It's not good enough to make it optional the optional portion of it, he said. My clients are concerned that the next time there's flu going around or a cold, you name it. They're going to be ordering these kids to wear masks again. You think he has a point? I think he has a point that the masks have become so prevalent in the past year. I think we're getting away from him now. And I know we're seeing fewer and fewer masks. When we go to restaurants and things like that. The customers very few are wearing them anymore. Very few. You see very few people wearing the masks now, But the people that are why are they wearing them? I have no idea. I guess they're concerned, but it's their choice. They feel you want to do it, They can do it. Can continue doing it after this thing is totally over if they so desire, so I my question is, why is the optional portion Why is he not happy with the optional portion? Yeah, on kids going to school kids? Of course, I don't know, depending on how old they are, whether that's some decision they should make. That should be up to their parents. But either way that's still an option or whatever, but it should.

Of the guys that got their deal's finalized in Nick's Syriani and David Collie. Syriani didn't impress me is just what it is. Everybody says you're going overboard. I want to take you back to 2018 to 2018 hiring cycle. Do you remember you probably don't because everybody's worried about so many other things in this world that are going on right now, right? Mean Cove in 19 is right in our face. We got all this other stuff that we're dealing with. And you probably don't remember. So let let me help you. 2018 Steve Wilson was hired as the Arizona Cardinals new head coach. That Maggie got the job with the Bears. My name at Patricia became the lion's head coach. Frank Wright took over the Colts. Had Schumer with the Giants. And a guy named Jon Gruden said. I'm coming out of retirement. He took the job on to become the Raiders head coach. There's one more Might Grable. Became the coach of the Titans. No, I just wanna go down this list. 12. Half these guys were Not head coaches anymore. Steve Works got fired. The next year, Matt Maggie should be fired. In my opinion he still being retained by the Bears. Matt Patricia's back with Belichick. Isn't that ironic after being fired by the Lions? And then Pat Schumer didn't last, either. You don't know how this is gonna shake out. Everybody thinks they got the right guy. We'll know in three years. Three years is playing up time in the NFL will know in three years of Robert's. Allah knows what he's doing, and if he's still there with the Jets, and if they've turned things around and two Staley with the Chargers and Arthur Smith with the Falcons, all of these guys will know Urban Meyer, who's never coaching NFL game and everybody's going. He knows what he's doing. He may This is a whole different monster. The greatest college football coach in the history of college football. Next saving didn't conquer this. So I think I'll remind knows what he's on. I believe he's got a handle on it. But we're gonna see Because so many guys take these jobs on and think their head coach is you have to know what you're doing, and you have to sound confident so men will follow your lead. Here's the other thing, too, when talking about these head coaches. You know, I, uh, I see this all the time. And, ah, lot of this is part of just what happens with relationships and coaching relationships, But You know these organizations and you look at him and you go. Are they making the right choice? Just don't hire somebody because of their connection to somebody. Just just don't do that. I mean, Bella checks a prime example guys. You know, And I just didn't that Patricia Matt Patricia left what's become the coach of the Lions. Now he's back. With with Belichick. Romeo Cornell, left. Eric Mangini left, Josh McDaniels left came back. Bill O'Brien. Who's now the coordinator, Ironically, in Alabama, But O'Brien left and, Yeah, you want a couple of you know, we got to the playoffs. But none of these guys had Bella check. Success of them won Super Bowls. His apprentice coaching tree is fruitless. It just is. So when I hear well, you know, he knows such and such and he worked for, such as you Don't hire a guy just because of who you think that guy, uh, you know, coach for She's not gonna be that guy. It's gotta be his old guy. And that mistake is when you know what's happened Time and time again, So I don't know what kind of coach Nick Syriani is gonna be. But I do know this plan one more time for me, Connor. I do know this. You gotta sound like you know what you're talking about. Next thing that's very important to me is that we build a smart football team. We have a smart football team here, and I know we have the people in place to do that. The first part of that The first part of being smart is knowing what to do. We're going to. We're going to know what you're gonna do Systems in place that Are easier to learn. All right, complicated to the defense or offense that they're going against the special teams group. They're going as but easy for us to learn, because when we can put that because we when we can learn our system and we can get good at our system, then our talent can take over less thinking equals talent take over, But we need to have systems in place and we will have systems in place. To do so. Let's talking. How about that? How about that? Oh, my goodness. 855 To 1 to 4 to 27 is the number for you to join us. Uh, we're coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios Rocket mortgage guys is giving away millions during the Super Bowl. Super Bowl 55 with Rocket mortgage Super Bowl Square sweepstakes.

Well, Tyler guns going to join us. And we'll bring down all of these different scenarios that are going on. I think this off season is going to be as crazy as it's ever been when you talk about potential moves. And now you know, J. J. What I mean the Texan's already a mess. But now judging what He's old $17 million, but it's non guaranteed. So the thought is they don't have first round picks. Thanks, Bill O'Brien. They don't have first round picks, so they've got to make some maneuvers and one of those, maybe trading away JJ Watt and the quarterback. You guys already noticed the quarterback wants out. So we'll get into all of that. Coming up with Tyler done here a swell also on the way. Um, a little bit later on. We're gonna talk some MBA with my man Gerald Braun, who host on Sirius X him NBA radio.

"pacino" Discussed on KTOK
"Leigh Matthews getting a lot of questions. If we're gonna cover the inauguration today, we will only cover it in so far as The Rush Limbaugh program covers because I don't want to interrupt Rush Limbaugh. He will probably join it in progress here and there throughout the throughout the process. So that's that's how we'll do that early or later on today on this ready, 1000 Katie. Okay, It's Oklahoma's first news. I'm Leigh Matthews. You've seen him in a lot of things. I first saw him in friends, but he's also been on Allie McBeal, er sleeper cell Amazons Hunt with Al Pacino. He can kind of fade into a lot of different roles. And his new project is called Buck. Run. We're talking this morning to James look, grow. And James, this is a different a different role for you. What? We're going to see a young man you know, transitioning from boyhood to Being a young adults and all the challenges that that presents. Now this kid has kind of gotten Delta tough set of cards with Mom. He's got to take care of and a dad. He's trying to figure out And it's at that sort of turning point in middle school where maybe kids are a little tough. And, uh, it's all through the lens of his experience, which is really a beautiful lens and beautifully shot in central Pennsylvania. This is one of those mean you're known for your boyish good looks and some of those roles that I mentioned earlier, but you had to kind of had to kind of ugly up for this one. Well, yeah. You know, the older I get the easier it easier is that exact soul of ugly up? Uh, no offense. That's the character supposed to be a rough dude. That's a boat. Yeah, but, you know, listen, I'm very lucky just to get to ask Go toe work is often as I do so It was a great a great pleasure to work with these young people on this picture. Yeah, your co star, he's He's not completely new to the business. But this is this is going to be his probably his breakout role. Yeah, Act. I think the first time No one came on my radar because I'm a fan of the television show. Uh, Boardwalk Empire plays the young Eat fish Emmy. Wonderful actor. I've had the privilege to work with a couple of times, but yeah, no one is just a real creative actor. On. He has the hallmark of But all great actors have, which is a great listener. And where were James Let grow in the name of the movie is Buck Ron. What is the significance of deer hunting in this movie? Oh, well. Not getting to gift and heavy metaphor. I mean, there's the You know, there is the idea of death and renewal and of a You know, some people looking at at hunting as a kind of a sacred act, and then that sacrifice that the deer gives us. Um So you know, and I guess also to in the film. It's a It's a kind of a cultural aspect. Which, uh, which I thought was really interesting because I think a lot of people Maybe in the middle of the country don't really have their stories Express. So much in the Hollywood metal are the current Storytelling, So that's another great thing about this picture is It shines a light on People's lives, his stories they don't always find when they go to the movies. You know him from Amazon's the hunt with Al Pacino and many many other appearances James Legros with us. The name of the movie is Buck Run. I also can't get over the similarity between the father character and the sun and maybe kind of a Bambi. Bambi similarity going on there. Well, that's that's kind of interesting to you know when the When the mother of the story All Villa and this young man who's spar too young to be a caregiver. It's sort of charged with, you know, taking care of her. You know, it's just interesting thing because I think a lot of people can identify with. Being thrown in the circumstances, which they're just not ready for. And then to have to reconcile relationships you know, like an estranged father. You know, figure out how do we make that work? A lot of people in this covert world and now living with people that maybe have been away to school for a while, or we're out on their own or living different lives, But because The situation we're all in. They have to, you know, kind of circle, the wagons and all hunker down together, and that has a kind of a challenge. And I don't mind telling you, James look grow. The name of the movie is Buck run Since the pandemic. I've interviewed many of your fellow actors who are really stretching their wings and independent projects like this because I think the audience is rediscovering independent projects. What? That's something that we've learned in the pandemic. Apparently, people still wanna watch movies and TV shows seems to be a demand. And I guess what I like about that, too, is people have their viewing has gone way up on so they probably have explored things that they might not have always. A sought our, you know, because they don't have the time. They got to do the work. I gotta do this. You gotta do that. It's been a great opportunity for TV and movie to reach audiences that they might not have reached the past. Well, you got it kind of got your started independent film as well, didn't you? Oh, totally. Yeah, That's where I started out at eight to a large degree. That's where I still remain. I do a lot of TV and I've worked on some bigger projects. I would say the bulk of everything I do is is a little bit more in the smaller, independent community. Well, I want to ask more about independent production and also about production in general, the movie business and the effects it's had in the last year or so. So will feature that on the later with Leigh Matthews podcast. My conversation with actor James let grow and his new movie is called Buck Run here. The podcast later with Leigh Matthews. Katie. Okay, calm and the I Heart radio app for free on Inauguration Day Preview..

All over new england. I bob dylan. And i love these stories because this this is what the taylor swift it. Which means that they will wake up and actually have some interest in this topic. Talking about my girl taylor. Swift sold her music catalog to what's his name scooter braun. Oh yeah and then complains. After bob dylan sold his music library for three hundred million dollars. That's right And by the way He sold is popularly. Seventy eight which is another one of those amazing miracles. The bob dylan still around still kicking. Well did you hear what he said about this jerry region. But here's what's going to happen you me. We'll be watching You know football game. We're watching wednesday night football thursday night football tuesday night. Football game mini mini games That around these days and there's gonna be a commercial for flow or he'll be commercial for you name it Gimme gimme some tv for apple apple. Lot of apple commercials. That's a good one apple amazon target. And it'll be Some of my friend is blowing in the wind blowing in the wind or something blue. What's blue some blue jet blue. And they'll be tangled up in blue. You'll go what bob dylan. His stuff is going to be of vera readily available companies to put in tv commercials. Because bob dylan sold out. It's bob dylan's if you don't like it if you think you know that he's Not that kind of guy that he wouldn't ever seventy-nine by the way he sold out. He took the money. God bless him his family's gonna why he needs the money but his family is going to be fabulously wealthy for generations but companies like target nap bullen and whatever flow what is flow sell insurance. Press gress yes i defense. They're going to be able to play. Dylan's pay whatever the going rate is and they could play it and you'll hear it all over the place just like you here. You know the rolling stones in some cases or taylor swift and other artists who was amazing. When i read the story it was about some of the other artists of fleetwood. Mac sold theirs for like. I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone. But his his lyrics. If back on my i always think that you know if you get ten best lyrics of all time. You don't need a whether they know which way the wind blows is one of the great lines right and i'm with you. I'm a lear. Emma word man to and i love you know singing along to whatever tangled up in blue and he. He won the nobel prize for whatever writing. Poetry didn't show up for the award. You know. I believe. I believe greta thune. Berg was second so she'd go toward for him but no he won the nobel prize. I think he blew the market and show up to get the thing and these the only singer or songwriter to win to win it
How about a language vacation
"Tour Guide Kerry Walker is an American language, but she's worked on her language goes in Central America and was immersing herself in Italian lessons when we last checked in with her Kerry, where have you gone in Italy to study the language I? So I started off in a school at Monte Pacino School in town so I Did that for about a week, which was a great start but then left I really needed more so I quickly learned that private lessons for me were the way to go really get the most being my book I said my last two studies have been in home stays with my teacher. So private is better than group for you for me, but is it more expensive because it's one on one? It is more expensive. But my goal is to really learn the language and order to do that. I realized that I really need that one on one, which is focused exactly on where I am where my misconceptions are the things that I want fine tune, and also that the places that I want to go may teacher can take me there much more quickly they can tailor the teaching to your exact interests you know all over the. World there's a lot of people earning their living despite teaching. English. As a second language is it can flip flop it. Are there a lot of people in Italy that earned their living or supplement their income by teaching foreigners Italian without question it's a big business. How you learn about that you know there's a lot of different ways. There's not one place to go to I. Really do it a lot of different ways I. Just asking people, where did you study? So I, got my last home state through my Italian tutor back home had another student that I spoke to I. So I think really getting those references from other people. Also some research, there's a lot of people now that have contacts with teachers all over Italy, and then you move in and you just how many hours a day or a week where he works. So I did I did about four to six hours a day, but I ate breakfast lunch and dinner with that family our table with ALFRESCO. Semi my classroom was Tuscany alfresco outside as living it. I was I was all those things that I needed to learn. My teacher was right there. So so it's it's a lot of work I I've never bothered I I have. A great time in Italy why would you spend all the time and money learning the language I'd love connecting with the culture I mean I think just to be able to move in and really not only did I. Learn the language I learned the culture I said at that table every day and for me that makes travel so much more real. So that is it. If the bottom line, the bottom line is not speaking the language, but it's connecting with the culture and with the language it's like you've got better vision. Exactly. You've done this also in Costa Rica and. Those are two different. Spanish. Speaking Countries. How does your choice of a destination? Impact, the learning that you have and what you come away with because Costa Rica and Nicaragua you went to both of them and you were trying to learn Spanish Why would you go to one rather than the other for me? It was based on what I wanted to see as well. I had some travel goals to for people. I. Think it's often going to depend on what part of the world you WANNA. See a said oftentimes that's the case also, you have to think about what kind of language you WanNa come away with if you went. Back to learn French and then you go to France, they're gonNA look at you like where are you from? Exactly so that's one of the reasons I chose not to study in Sicily obviously Naples I want to for me 'cause you don't WanNa, go around the world speaking. In, Tuscany, the kind of Italian. That I want to come away with what they're speaking there.

Bitcoin LOOKING FOR EIGHT. Move to the upside. Then it's just a spot market to you know I'm not I'm not even talking to Imagining that's case. I'm just looking at the spot. Mark The we do have some very very nice Options vital because I want to take you through. What's going on right now across the top ten now. Bitcoin look at. It was decided that I like like honestly. It was just so undecided. A just was horrible. I mean look Closed in our guy or the actually close one hull and it closed for into ever down point. Six percent of close at eight thousand eight hundred thirty six. So what does it mean? What does it mean what does it mean? Well I tell you what it does mean what it could mean. What am I being that? Indecisiveness can often lead to a change of direction. It can't because it doesn't try to go down as a member done anything. But I'll tell you what I'm watching and you want to write this down the the level. Actually you can save on Youtube video so you can actually watch on talking to. You are now if we can get above from Willie on now. Okay so just caveat if we can get above from where we are now we just keep going up. Get above nine thousand nighttime. We'll have ourselves Ohio Ohio. Honda will be on the four hour chop a love. That four outshot man. It's just as important as the daily to me because I use that to Ghana What's going on is low to mid timeframes wiser use the daily for that big picture momentum as well so we get a reversal trending four realistically from nine thousand and ten thousand. Roughly around with that resistance is we got two thousand bucks. We get an uptrend. Hey Hey try again on margin a love driving and the starting to creep into today if we can get bitcoin back into that four hour uptrend. Gee Whiz we could be in for NAS. It'll move even if we just run back up to that resistance as plenty of spice. There's some pretty combat that I'm high paying a monthly to get it done in the next couple of days. Because I wouldn't expect to one day with what could happen. These markets could do very little for a little bit and then Bam off they go and they run doth like a know. A bullet dight Got That wrong was meant to say the design shut. The Guy was bolted. That could work. That ain't apologies for some pull. Use analogies they cry very bad A. I'm deeply sorry But four our up would be really really nice there on Bitcoin. We sitting right now. Point four percent one hour into the trading day a not much to say beyond that go to wet for that reversal theory. Did break down to new lows on that four. So it's not in the same position as we're two hundred very messy very sideways above two hundred to one four now yes. That'd be closed down. One point five six percent just above two hundred two hundred ninety one dollars. X. Pay Agai leadership that four foyer all. It does have a high alert. It's very similar. Bitcoin So a guy wanting to see a break above the level of high is nineteen. Point seven cents. That's the level of reluctancy. Move Away from very ugly looking on the daily I. It's not really looking all that great to be honest with you. It's looking we'll bearish bullish. Guidance is is pretty decisive. Guys the low. It's a one point sir Point that would put us into a much stronger. Downturn not there at the mine. Bitcoin cash yesterday closed at two hundred twenty dollars on the noise. Down one percent. A guy you know look at this four hour timeframe we do have higher low. The will we push to a high hot well. Only time will tell to twenty five right now. Bitcoin cash. Vs they probably. The best will not probably the best of the mid-term timeframe downtrends BS phase. One Eighty One. Seventy six point nine percent right now of yesterday It did closed down nearly three percent close at one point two seven Pointing back that cradles actually gives us an option for a short tried lighter if if the market does attend some pretty happy to have that option available mom being long or short. I just want to make sure of options lot coin. Yesterday was down one point. Six percent closing forty two dollars and twenty five cents just across four our gang. We do have a high alert. I'm it's not the most bullish Johnson got to be ost. None of them really hard. The minute weddings that Jai Alai with only forty two dollars and fifty nine point three percent a US yesterday rejection catalysts off so it was down point. Non a percent closing rod around where we are right now to be fair closing at two dollars fifty and we are currently at two fifty that four out very similar just to push on higher. If we're going to do that or if we're GONNA go low I WANNA is get a main I wanna get below tweedles. Forty that would make me look much better to the downside bonds. While yesterday very slow I point nine percent. Dan Closing at sixteen dollars and twenty cents. Sixteen dollars and twenty seven cents. Not much to speak of to be honest I will. It rejected often old level that The set there about twenty two cents. It's looking at what nauseous actually for potential move to the upside the the daily although a little bit funny looking flat it hasn't really broken that up trend that it has been in for quite some time we do have a very clear high Every break up through the. Hi this New Five Point. Four three cents. That will have a speaking to an upturn in that will let the Pacino wrought now flat on the table. See what's causing stole.

Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang
"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam Kanner and I'm Josh. Larsen can't be easy to keep working after three days. No sleep to keep focus. You're seeing things yet. Cause little flashes tricks alight that's Robin Williams with Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's insomnia from two thousand and two as the follow up to his mind. Bending breakout hit. Memento insomnia struck some at the time as a frustratingly straightforward thriller. This week we continue our Nolan who've review with a fresh look plus we'll have thoughts on three new releases all available online more. Can I get up Pacino ahead? Unfilled SPOTTING Welcome to film spotting Josh. The theaters are closed. But the movies keep coming at least if you know where to look this week. We've got reviews of three new releases. Include ONE. That's definitely a golden brick. Were the debut. That's the cozy noir thriller. Blow the man down a feature debut set in Downey's main and the down under set the true history of the Kelly gang from director. Justin Kurt Sel and the high school set Sela and the spades one. You caught up with Josh Ross. Going to continue our Christopher Nolan who've review with two thousand? Two's insomnia the black sheep. Maybe of the Nolan filmography. We'll see if it does deserve that reputation later in the show first though let's talk some new movies for a change including that Australian import true history of the Kelly gang mother soldier pan. You cost me you. Can that back a child? It is already traveling. Full tilt toward the men are would become. That's from the trailer for True History of the Kelly gang which is available to rent ondemand this weekend. The director is Justin Kerr. Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents. They have their There's also the whole criminal element calls on brick of course that this is going on among high schoolers beneath the adults is. It's kind of amazing. How little the adults have to play in in this world And then there are some really striking flourishes by PLO as director. And here's where some of the the school days Spike Lee school days comparisons come in because Sela is also the head of the spirit squad for the school and they have a direct address to the camera routine just about what. It's like to be a seventeen year old
Consoles: The Dreamcast's Life After Death
"It's Timber Ninth. Nineteen Ninety nine nine nine ninety nine and somewhere in Japan. A spy has made her way. Deep into a mainframe. Computer she hacks. In and disables. A security guard investigates she knocks him out with a well-placed kick with the computer system. It comes to life. Everything goes a strange swirling pattern. Pops up on the monitors. It's obvious that the system is thinking the spy folks. The thicky computers out to stop her. It tries to lock her inside the building. The spy smashes through a window but not before she grabs a case and lungs off with inside that case a prototype for a new kind of machine that could change. Everything describing was a television commercial called apocalypse. It was promoting the newest video game console from Game Company. Sega and no ordinary console either. This revolutionary device was called the dreamcast in that apocalypse ad. What's inside the case? This is stealing. Is that very consul? Well then the dreamcast Box it sort of spins off of the back of the thief and lands in the street and the the the lid of this magic case kept the box plug. In the whole time POPs open camera's zooms into the dreamcast and into the window and goes down to the bottom where it appears that all the characters from all the Games are all gathered and there we have sonic down there and he he triumphantly says we got in the whole place rupp's and everybody's screaming. That's Brian and Pacino. The creative director of the apocalypse ad campaign and the Sauna keys referring to is sonic the Hedgehog Sega's famous game character in the nineties. Seca was one of the most recognized video game companies in the world. The by the end of that decade the competition was proving to be fierce so up at the House on dreamcast. It would be the company's Savior. The apocalypse ad was described as the most epic video game commercial ever created. But how else to show off the most advanced game console ever made so smart. You could almost say it really was thinking. Alas the dreamcast did not change world. It barely made a dent. It's considered by some to be the greatest console that never stood a chance. It was the last console Sega would build and had very nearly broke the company in our penultimate episode of the season a season all about hardware. That changed the course of development. We look at the short lived history of the Sega dreamcast yet. Despite the short shelf-life dreamcast is still considered by many to be one of if not the finest gaming consoles of all time and twenty years after its death it manages to live on in a very real way. I'm throwing at Barak and this command line. Heroes and the littoral podcast from hat like thinking computer in the apocalypse ad that whisper thanking became the company's new tagline for their new console. So the thought of having our our veal always whisper. It's thinking we thought that would be a really neat way to to sort of evolve that icon sake scream. Here was a console that got smarter as he played. At least. That was the marketing Pinch Console. That brought something new something big something live. Aleutian aries to the home video game market. A system built to serve the hardcore Gamer and inside the company. The thinking was that this console would make Sega. The biggest name in video gaming fish was going to change gaming. This was going to change the world so what happened to figure that out. We need to go back all the way back to level one throughout the early nineties. Sega had a reputation for making gains. There were super cool and more mature than what the competition offered particularly intendo. And it's princess saving plumbers. They built this reputation with a very successful console Sega Genesis. Sega decided they were going to be really cutting edge. And these kids who had had the Nintendo's that will now they're teenagers and they want they want real sports games with real teams. They want bloody fighting games like mortal Kombat which came later on and they wanted a more mature it. Your face sort of system. Alex Handy is the founder and director of the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland. California he also works for Red Hat if you go back and look at ads from video game magazines in this period. They're kind of shocking their ads. Where there's like a bloody severed arm with gristle coming off of it and it says this is your best weapon against the Bad Guy Light. So Sega does really really well with this extreme in your face. Sort of successive genesis will sonic the hedgehog sort of impertinence as opposed to Mario's oshkosh b`Gosh overalls kind of happy theme. More than thirty million. People bought the SEGA GENESIS. A sixteen bit console that played games from cartridges. Gamers around the world loved it but over time sake struggles to grow as user base after Genesis. They introduced a thirty two bit. Sega Saturn more powerful than genesis. It display both two D and Basic Three D. Graphics but the Saturn Platform never really took off sales struggled. They managed to sell nine point. Two million consoles only a third of what the genesis sold another sticking point developers found a challenging to program games for Saturn's proprietary in house designed hardware. This was an issue. Sega made note of for the future. Add to that the launch of nintendo sixty four and then Sony's first entry into the market with the playstation and gaming was suddenly getting crowded and very competitive in one thousand nine hundred eight. Sega posted a loss of two hundred seventy million dollars. North American headquarters video game. Boss Bernie store announces that quote. The Saturn is not our future. He kills the console with that. Sega turns its focus to building the next generation of council level to building the dream. The Sega Saturn had hurt the company's brand and bottom line if sega was going to reclaim its market share and reputation. This next console needed to be powerful easy to co for and unlike anything else

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
Quentin Tarantino Discusses 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'
"Popcorn where we talk about the movies and one of my favorite movies of this year this decade of forever called once upon a time in Hollywood directed by this guy. Quentin Tarantino thank. You very much really appreciate the decade Monica. Give that to to to a nine to a movie that falls on the nine. No but you have to do. Usually you're supposed to years go by but this movie speaks to people like me I I according to get the jokes jokes. They'll get a two when they see it. But it's a pleasure to have you here. It's good to geek out a little bit about about this movie. Which is now the BLU ray now? Yeah ended up coming out no extending the cat. It's still cut but we have about twenty minutes of extra stuff off talk about this. You know everybody has it on their best list and it's nominated for every single. Does that matter to you anymore. It's fun it's it's Nice. It's really wonderful to like actually do movie and then kind of be in that like winners circle of we were talking about just before the show started between between like the seven or eight movies people are talking about and to be invited to the different parties. And No. That's actually really fun. Like I've been there where I thought I had one of the best movies. And it's not in that roundup so it's actually nice to be in the mound up. I want to know what was the genesis of this one. What was the first thing? Not because he sat down and started to write it. When was this in your head? Well this was kind of a long process similar to other inglorious bastards where I kind of I had the idea as opposed to okay. I'm going to sit down and bang out this script. That wasn't really kind of the case. Here this was more kind of an exploratory kind of thing so there was a couple of years. I'm just kind of figuring out who the characters were and I wasn't in any hurry to sit down and write a movie script even like my very first couple years of writing on it. I wrote it as a novel or at least a couple of chapters as a novel in exploratory way. Then he even wrote that like the The Al Pacino seen in Musso and frank's that has one act play at one point and that because I was planning on doing it as a player even planning on doing. I didn't know how I was going to do it. But it was more an exploratory Tori writing exercise but the the initial I Guess Genesis of the whole thing was It was a while ago I was making a movie and I was dealing with a an older action. He kind of Guy Actor and I'm doing the film And then he comes to me and he goes you know Quinton I have a stunt double and he's been my stunt double for about nine years now now I haven't I'm a bust your balls about it because there's not really anything for them to do but there is a gag coming up on Thursday. He could do that so if if you wouldn't mind. Maybe we could be a nice thing to throw him something and he could come on Thursday and do that thing and that would be good good for me. and He's good you'll like like yeah. Sure no worries so Thursday rolls around and he shows up and he does a great job with this stunt nowhere but anyway the dais going on and part of the thing about about about their relationship is like you can tell it's been going on for nine years. You could tell that there was a time that this guy was the perfect double double for the actor perfect. You could've shot close ups with the stunt guy and they would have passed. This time was not that that child kind of grown in different directions. And and you could tell this was like maybe the last or second the last thing that they'd be doing together and I kind of glance over and I see the two of them sitting in a director's chairs on the set talking. They're smoking cigarettes and just shooting the breeze and and naturally since one guy is the stunt guy the other guy there actually both dressed an identical costumes. which is that's the relationship they do and like the stunt guy has got his hair done in a cockamamie way that resembles the actor? And they're both wearing the same costume and they're smoking cigarettes and watching them talk. And I'm I'm seeing the whole nine years of their relationship and I know that this is the tail end of it and I'm watching them talk and I'm like wow. These guys have been buddies for a long time and they've been working buddies and it's an interesting friendship because yes I'm sure it's a friendship but one is working for the others. There's a subservient this implied. And all that but you know an actor does a lot of movies all right on this movie. He knows the director and he's friends and this other movie he knows an an actor took and their friends. But there's a lot of what we know anybody until he gets to know them but the stunt guy he does know. And that's his little buddy on the set that they can talk and bs with each other. So I'm sitting there watching this relationship as you just kind of talk to each other sitting there director's chairs dressed identically to each other and I thought wow that's an interesting relationship if ever. I do a movie about movies about the making of entertainment. That could be an interesting way in the relationship. Issue between an actor and a stuntman is and it was thank you. I have to show this clip now because it goes right to what you were saying. Let's just look. Did you. Just come prepared for that. Yeah and you were going to go with the clip is Kurt Russell. Let's run that clip. Let's see nothing is asking you to help me. Yeah man the answer is no the the answer is no not not no excuse. And this ain't and in Guadeloupe picture and I can't afford to hire a bunch of guys that smoke cigarettes and sit around talking to each other all day on the chance that I might use them. I got a four man team here. Rick I need more the net I got to get it approved and you know I gotTa look after my. Hey you're doing were better match me. I'd say okay. You got the. But that's not the case in note he he. He's a great match. You could do anything you want him to drop off a building. A lot of on fire with flanking Lincoln right get creative whatever you want. He's happy for the opportunity. I don't dig him and I don't think the by he brings. Oddly enough it's actually funny. Just even me telling that little story and watching that scene that actually ended up being very removing actually watching like rick fighting for his guys. I really do anything. You could beat them up but it's not a do raise is your anymore guy's GonNa get hired. He's got he's got he's got to talk the talk. He's got to convince the stunk after the do it does for him. Now we're in that world of Sharon Tate and the Manson's no. Was that always what you wanted to have. As part of this around with this well there was always part part of it because I like the idea for a couple of reasons one. I like the idea of exploring the character of Sharon Tate. Who through through the sensationalism of the circumstances and the sensationalism of history has almost been reduced to a an extra in her own story Lori to some degree? And of course I wanted to deal with Charles Manson and the family. Because I'm kind of dealing with Hollywood mythology at that that time Los Angeles County mythology and they are part of that fabric. You almost can't deal with that That city without thinking about them and also in in dealing with the the ups and the downs of Holly of that Hippie Hollywood they were part of that fabric but one of the things. I'm really proud about about the movie. And part of it is just Margot's enchanting performance that she gives is if I'm dealing with an audience that's eight hundred people in the theater for the most part those eight hundred people before the movie started when they thought Sharon tate they just. I thought about her murder. They thought about her as a murder victim. And I think the perception of Sharon has changed since this movie has played out during the year. Now people think about her as more than just a murder victim they think about her as a person they think they contemplate the life that she lived. She is a A character she's a person she's more than a murder statistics. She seems to be living her own life while the other characters are part of the story. Yeah no well that that was actually kind of that was that was that was done purposely because part of the thing is you. I mean the whole movie. I spent all this time figuring out who the characters were and Dan. At some point I had to. I actually asked myself the question. I was like okay. Okay now. I'm ready to do it. I have my milieu. I know I know the environment and I know the characters. What story do I want to tell me? Quinton Lily ask myself the question. What story do you WanNa tell and oh I thought to myself well you know I had a story in mind? You could imagine like Elmore Leonardy Kinda store. The even Clinton and Ricky feel like Leonard type type of characters. But then I thought about. I don't know I don't think I really WanNa tell a movie story or have a movie. The plot I actually think I just wanted to do a day in the life or a few days in the life of these characters and I actually think the characters are strong enough to hold it and I actually think the milieu that I'm creating being in the in the town itself is enough to hold it so in that regards. I didn't WANNA come up with necessarily plot for Sharon. I just wanted the to have us watch her live her life. She runs errands she drives around. She talks to a couple of her friends. She gets a book she goes to see the movie and and to me it was an aspect of just watching her just live her life. undramatically is kind of what was robbed from her. And that's what we could
Jamie Foxx on his latest film 'Just Mercy'
"Is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a great movie out right now for your c called just mercy that has Michael Jordan and then also this ask Jamie Foxx. Yes you're not from give it up now you either are or execute chicks you have to face. This is all right Jamie before I lose complete control interview which would be fine but you made a great movie and Jess Mercy you dead. I think this is a true story. True story I think this is the opposite is this is the most important movie I've ever done Yeah I got yes because of who it's about and what it's about Brian Stephen. A lawyer of WHO's played wonderfully about Michael Jordan. who his whole life is? A Journey is exonerating people that are on death row of wrongly accused and and when I met Bryan Stevenson I was blown away about how much he's done. And what is and it's been sort of under the radar so I applaud Michael Jordan for being the biggest star in the world But always coming back to the movies like this for our cultural for us to educate is to uplift us to give us hope and like I said it is the most important movie I've ever the and who do you play. Play Walter mcmillen Watson Watt's McDonald's amendment south in in Alabama who own pulping business chop down trees for living on his way home on a country road he gets pulled over by the sheriff. And the sheriff says you killed someone it city he's never been in Never met this person. They say you're going to jail. And they put him in jail. Put him on death row without a trial he was on death. Row without a trial for six years and I've been death row before studying for movie and the one thing that I knew about death row was at the worst thing you give. A person is hope because they know that at some point At any point they could be taken off to either electric chair or however they're going to be a or expired but hope walks in in the form of Bryan Bryan Stevenson. Who has played wonderfully Michael Jordan? He takes the case. This is a nineteen eighty six. which wasn't that long ago and They pulled off the miraculous And exonorated a person who had never been in. This has never happened in Alabama person to be exonerated off of death row. And that's the store and what was amazing about how our director destination destined and Michael Be put the movie together on how it brings. Everybody and you saw this Toronto in Toronto. Where just make people crazy and you got I? I don't know eight minutes and thirteen minutes standing ovation but what I really appreciated about the movie. Was it allowed everyone in this movie tested in front of a all black audience at a ninety seven now we expect it for that to be in a high number then they tested in the mid West in front of mostly white audience and we what they say it tested at a ninety eight so that lets you know that the work that was done in the movie as the adapt tation of a book really really got it done. It really worked. Let's look at a clip from your performance Sir Ingest Mercy Screen Actors Guild nominated for I godless. So let's look list from Harvey all know what it is here. You get from the moment you ball buddy over these white folks and make them laugh and try to make him like it. Whatever that is and you say yes or no man but when it's your turn ain't got no thanks take evidence and all the witnesses they got eight thing another matter when all your thank is I looked like a WHO could kill somebody? That's not what I think the way. You're not looking at him and then you do. It's just it's devastating because he wants to get it out. He wants him to hear what was going on in in this soul and then that look. I'm sure he's done it a few times that look to see if what I told hold him really landed. Sometimes people can be in those positions and it's no pad pencil numbers. You're just another person. I'm on my way. But when he looked up so Michael be looking back at him. Engaged young ready ready to take on whatever this whatever this monster is designed to do at the end it was another thing too. I studied a film that that move to me was made famous to me by Al Pacino in The Godfather and if you remember I think it was Zena he was when he was getting ready to kill him at the dinner table. Yeah when he says. I'm going to talk Doc Italian till Michael foresaken and as he goes to talk. Al Pacino Leans up to listen but he looks this way first and and then he engaged so as you study the the art. There's certain things that you bring along with you. That are really effective. Well it sure sure works and that's what you want. You don't just see this movie and say you want to talk to people about it and you see this. You gotTa feel it because there's instead of just anger and just rage. There's a sense of. We can do something about it if we fail. Were trying to do something it. Listen the thing about. This is what I enjoyed about the way. The movie plays out is said when people leave this movie. They feel like they want to get involved. What can I do? What can I do to change his narrative? What can I do to pull back to mass of some of these injustices? And that's what's been so fulfilling with this film because Brian I Steve Isn't who still going out there every day of about his job. He needs it. He needs that people to know that these things are going on because it helps in his endeavors in taking these people and trying to you know put their lives back together. Well Walter Your Johnny on on these calls a lot of things. But he's the kind of person that grows up in this Alabama neighborhood and it was. It's very ironic in the movie. How everybody there even racist Alabama is saying? This is Monroe Kennedy. This is where Harper Lee wrote to them walking bird right which is about Wow this racist that. They don't even say dangerous sort of bouncing off her celebrity. What well here's the thing is like like I'd say all the time there were some very interesting things that wall to sit? Did I looked like a man that could kill somebody. This is the perception that were attacking what tackling the perception that a black man automatically you feel like there is some some of villainous or ominous thing that he possesses therefore of when he is accused of something. We sorta turn the other way. You know we don't necessarily we give them the benefit of the doubt. I can't tell you how many times when when there's something going on on television and there's there's some type of crime every black person to tell you man. I hope it's not a black person. Listen you know why because it continues the narrative but continues The procession so that's what we're what we were tackling in in the movie Walter. Walter says you're guilty from the day you were born now. That was something that we actually ad-libbed in the in the script really. Yeah because yes that's my line Growing up in a southern place in Texas in Texas and being met with early age age racism being called As a young kid it baffled me I was eight years old. My grandfather told me go. Get some gas and gas like twenty five cents a gallon. So he's bringing some gas. I I had to walk on the other side of the tracks. Go get the gas but I think the gas only came up to eighteen cents and I need to get to seven cents back but I didn't WANNA leave the gas out you know so I had to walk into the place I walk in and the guy says. Hey what are you doing while you bring the gas. And I looked at him. I said hey eight. I'm only eight nine. Remember marching back to my grandfather and told him what happened. My grandfather went over and talked to the man told him. You know. That's not nice and whatever you told them what He. He squatted. But I couldn't couldn't wrap my mind around a grown man looking at a child insane and saying that and so that's where I got the line I said I don't have nothing to do with this. I was just born. How can I change this? Why are you so angry at me just because because I was born? Yeah so when you're born into the world and this label is on you just because you're born. I thought that that was something that Walter that we should Add to the to the layer of his character saying I was just born because that's all of us were only just
