"A very very well known well regarded successful movie at the time But i never watched it. Never it's very very long. I think it's like three hours or almost three hours long. It was never something that i felt like. was on my radar particularly. But i'm glad i had the reason to watch it because it's so fun and weird in a way. I mean you'd think that it would be this boring historical drama which is a lot of what the miniseries the new series turned out to be. But it's got all of these really fun charismatic performances Dennis quaid is one of his earliest breakout roles. And he's just so charming. And it's all about these cocky test pilots you know who were the early astronauts at nasa and there are these guys who they don't they're not holding sacred the idea of going into space and exploration and things like that that you you have that sense of on wonder in movies about astronauts i feel like now and you have some of that in this movie too but it's also just about these kind of shit kicking army guys or navy airforce guy guys actually. Maybe i don't know military stuff. Sure military guys. You know whose jobs have previously existed. It consisted of pushing themselves like putting themselves in constant danger you know. And so they really have that sense of recklessness and it captures that it's funny but it also gives you the real history of staff And it includes aspect of the story of the book that the series the new series despite having more time leaves out which is telling the story of chuck yeager who is just just died recently but was like the early as one of the earliest most famous pilots who decided not to join nasa because he thought this astronaut program was kinda joke and then lost out on the opportunity to get the fame and fortune that these other guys got by being the first people in space but it uses that as kind of a counterpoint like his sort of missed opportunity and him as this kind of lost icon of american masculinity and sam shepherd plays him and so it's got that extra element to it that the series loses out on. So it's very long. And i understand if people might think it's too much but it's worth it and it's another thing i love. Is that after three hours. It ends on this kind of like weird just anti-climactic note like we went to space. I like that about it. So the right stuff by philip kaufman. Nice nice see. I have not seen it. I heard really great things. And it's come up as a puzzle piece a few times when piecing it together and it sounds like it's just a great take on that kind of astronaut story and like you know keeping fun and fresh from that point of view. Yeah i think so and again one of these movies at one. A bunch of oscars. You think it's going to be all stuffy and it's really not right right..

"Joe piscopo is this just wisecracking detective and his partner detective. Roger mortis is slowly turning into a zombie and dying played by treat williams. And it's just so ridiculous every like buddy cop like you know cliche and all that stuff except for zombies and all of that is added into it. There's actually some really great practical creature effects mixed in. And this is a movie that i had never heard of until i watched it this year. This would have been like up there with some of the classic gore silly gore movies that you rent when you're you know twelve years old in high school or whatever you know and and just just be like this is. This is the craziest shit. And i love it and i would have loved this movie as a teenager and i really tapped into that part of myself while watching this as dumb as it is. I really tapped into it and had so much fun with it and One more point though. There's also a really bizarre. Vincent cam Vincent price cameo where he's basically standing in one spot for his whole role and it just adds to the weirdness of this just ridiculous movie. I sounds great. I think. I remember seeing you post on letterbox about it when you watched it and it sounds really entertaining from the way you describe it. Yeah it's just so strange. I hope people who will check it out one of these days. Yeah i do like that. And i love that. I mean i imagine that. That's very later. In vincent price's life and career and i love that now where it's like. We clearly had a tiny amount of money to get this famous person to show and you know we shot the whole roll while they were sitting in an office chair or whatever and we have that in movies now and it's always entertaining to see so fuddy. Well what do you got for nine. So my number nine pick is the right stuff directed by philip kaufman from nineteen eighty three and i watched this movie because i reviewed the new disney plus series of the right stuff Both of which are based on tom.

"Will to this. Is Tony to Lotto. And today I have a conversation with Mark Pellegrino. He certainly has made his impact as go to guest star playing memorable roles and lost supernatural and being human I had spoken to him before and we catch up and we also talk about his script writing efforts on a Harf we start off the conversation talking about working with the cast of being human and what the atmosphere on the set was like atmosphere that kind of develop their. We all became such such good friends that it was. It was a joy to go to work every day and work with really really like I mean I feel like me and Sam with were developed to a really really really good friendship with each other. That has this continuing to this day. I mean as far as his the character when you first started playing him. Was there a definite direction that he was going to go? And there's like a quality that you brought to him that he always trying to see how far he can push. I always liked that about my. My sense of of the character was was motivated by the story of the Prodigal Son and I felt like if anything bishop was he was trying to bring his son is is sorely missed misinformed and an unfortunate Son Who's WHO's adopting all the wrong values and going down the wrong path and and if anything challenging him constantly challenging him With the truth. Try to to try to disillusion him you know and and try to bring them back into the fold so I took all of those things as You know you look at it from the outside and fair. Bishop is constantly manipulating aiden. And he's playing a game with him and I always felt he was challenging him. I always felt he was trying to let him experience his life and go as far as a father should allow his son always trying to bring him back by saying you know I have a stronger argument then you you know and they stronger argument is is our nature and you can't fight your nature. Your nature is what it is in this package taking his very dangerous. I'm hoping that familial element made the character and the interaction between the two interesting. Yes I I. Just like their backstory going back to the revolutionary war when he created him he was his maker. I guess sire. I'm not sure how they call it for empire wise but I like that long history and so he's been he's been getting into his head for a long long time and that was fun to watch. I like during during that season how they showed the value turns between the two of us. There was a time when when Aden kind of dominant over me and I was smitten with You know a normal women on the outside and thinking about turning my back on the vampire world and and the power position you know in the fifties was was different between the two of US and I. I like seeing that as well but I think that lost that loss where I made the choice In that season of of family or my own self interest I family over my own self interest in that I think changed bishop forever. What's interesting is also how. He kind of weaved himself into so many areas of the city so he was able to carry out what he was doing. And and kind of be above the law. You know for now is very interesting to watch. It took two. He obviously had a lot of experience being an older vampire so he knew what he was doing. Yes indeed yeah and I think he had a plan I think his you got a plan that in the end kind of turns out to be very insidious and a little. Hilarion you know he I think he. He really felt that his race was oppressed. And he I think he wanted to build up a huge network of an army and and Take OVER THE WORLD. Had A big big chip on your shoulder in in a way definitely. Wasn't your plan originally that you would just be doing the first season or was there. Did you have that idea when you took the role? Yeah well I I knew that in the The original BBC version. That my character sake came back to life. So you know being a supernatural genre. You know anything's possible. But I knew I knew I was GONNA be ended after the first The first season and then the debate has been on about Rx. Exactly what to do with this bishop character. I think there's still so much to be mined between eighteen bishops. There's so much deep deep deep stuff. Oh absolutely especially. Since the second season you know turnabout was fair. Play in a way and I really liked the fact that Aden begins to experience. The things bishop had to experience when his son and he started fighting and it reminds me of that very human element you know like how how parents and children reach a certain point where they kind of have an anti relationship and it's not until the child has has children of their own. They start to disguise discover that their their parents. Maybe weren't so bad so horrible and they've been finding themselves saying and doing the very same things and they start to identify with their parents a little bit more and they become friends again. Exactly exactly so. I'm hoping something like that down. The Road Can can happen in the in the series. I think one of the things I think they're doing is. I think they've managed in this season to really forge your own path away the BBC series. And I was actually thinking the other day. I think it would be neat. To kind of have a crossover between the two shows. I think that'd be fun. 'cause I think they're both established in their own way now. I think it'd be cold this either. That would be cool one of the things you in. You're in the last few episodes of Chuck. And what was that like? I mean what was the set like knowing that we're going to wrap and that was it for them. You know I mean. Everybody was at the time that I was there. I don't you know everybody was still in work mode. And so they weren't at that nostalgic stage where you know there's a little bit of sadness That you know that the party can be over soon so everybody was still. Kinda just humming along you know and I was surprised to go back. I don't even think my character in the the first time I The first time I work on the shot here we think my character name. I think it was fulcrum agent or something. That's right that's right so I was like when when I when I heard. They wanted me back for the finale. I was pleasantly surprised. Surprised that that's cool and for supernatural. Had you look back on Lucifer? Now have the character was and how he's evolved during the course of your your time show. Well you know I I look back on Lucifer as as a revenge story and now he's kind of he's kind of devolved a little bit become become a bit of a petulant child because he's kind of trapped and left to antagonizing uh Sam and he's he's literally got Too much idle time I just. He's just left to these kind of petty little vengeful Practical jokes so he's kind of evolved in stature. I think I'm and I'm hoping somewhere down the line again. He's able to express himself. Because I I like his argument. You know and I like the fact. The show made him on on his introduction. One of the guy at one of the few guys telling the truth. Yeah completely honest never lied never his. His viewpoint was definitely unique to say. The least that was that was cool about him. This was a show that you know people were they were gonNA say originally can do five seasons and they're still going and it's really amazing it really a testament to the fan base and and really the writing on that show. It's really a great show. Yeah I think the writing is great. I think I love everybody on the show. One of those one of those things again where you feel like you're working with family and and And the fan base is awesome. Sometimes I do these Convention I have met some really really amazing people And remain friends with them. Yeah scored a great. Yeah it is pretty cool. After we talked I obviously I saw the last episode of lost and Jacob. Wow that was that. That part really defies description. I mean people are still debating what exactly Jacob it was. Yeah it was really a really cool part that we know with the water and everything that was so many different beliefs kind of filtered into who he was and I. That's what I liked about it. What a great character. Yeah I did too and And I like the fact that he was very gray that that in his problem in in a sense was kind of the problem of all the characters. I mean to me that the show is kind of a redemption show. In a way I could be wrong. It was just my own little thoughts and I think Jacob had the same issue I mean everybody looked at him as a Christ like figure but he he was just as in need of redemption from sin he had committed as everybody else was. Yeah it's great part in. What a finale to that was. That's one that stayed with me for a while and it was a great great show really i. It was great. It was really great now as I hear. You're actually in this really mean a big movie for. Hbo Hemingway and Gal Horn. And you play Max Eastman is at the Eastman from Eastman. Kodak that Particular Gentlemen Eastman you know? I'm not I'm not sure I had very little time to research part but I don't know if it's from Eastman Kodak he was he was one of the founders of the ACLU early on he was He's a very very literary guy who Oddly enough had after what had an antagonistic relationship with. Hemingway encourage him to write. He was the one who kind of brought him into the fold writing. Encourage them right early on and then thought that he lost his sense of themselves. They had a bit of a battle. 'cause he was a bit of a critic and he's been was an interesting character. Because he he was a diehard Communist and at the forefront of that intellectual movement back then very much involved in in in politics as you demonstrate but then went to the Soviet Union and had a complete philosophical turnaround interest and then became persona non grata on the left because he completely turned around and he was very interesting. Character you don't you know all you see in the and then having Wayne Gill Horn thing is the conflict between the two. It's it's kind of reduced to a barroom brawl which didn't really happen. They had a little bit of a wrestling match in their editor's Office on day. Probably instigated by Hemingway with you. Don't get to see how deep and interesting character Eastman is and how how courageous it takes a lot of courage to to turn around like that midstream and to go against values that you've adopted all of your life and friends who believe the same way I mean it's it's an. It's takes a lot of bravery swim against the Stream. And that's quite a cashier working whereas clive on I believe is playing Hemi wearing and Nicole. Kidman's into film to Yes indeed and Robert vowel. That's quite set to walk into every day. Yeah you know. It's funny as I auditioned for the part that Robert Duvall got and I didn't even know Philip Kaufman was directing and Phil. Kaufman directed movie called twisted. That I did and I love him. Yeah he's an amazing guy. And so I didn't even know he was he was He was directing it and when I caught onto the set. He's like mark. I really really loved. You're you're drunk Russian general but I had to give it to Bobby Duval. It was like now. That's okay. Well that's not a bad person that lose a bad person at all and you know. I worked at Clive Owen. Before a really we did a pilot back in like nineteen ninety-one Steven Spielberg pilot called classes. Sixty one it was about. It was about West Point during the civil war when for Fort Sumter happens the cadet that west point divided into north and south. And Yeah it was great and Josh. Lucas was in it. Laura Linney Andre Brower. All these people were unknown at the time. Why was Was One of those guys that you know wasn't known at the time and you can't you can't say anything else as some kind of private we. We went to his first. Strip club together. Which is an ironic experience in the Bible Belt? I'm sure it was actually..

"Mommy Sunday I hate that terminology. I hate the Daddy. Yeah dating because it's daughter Dan. We're having it's having a daddy daughter. Yes because we used to. I used to go on Mommy. Exactly Mommy sunbathes to Neil Simon movies in the Senate. That's that's my own. Therapy that terms of endearment. You know which is you know. It's I mean it's a tear jerker Because it's a film that deals with Terminal Illness Not despoil too much. But it's also a family going through different stages in their life and so there's a lot of you know points of connection it's James L. Brooks coming off of Mary Tyler Moore You know where he had great success and creating just a real real crowd-pleaser Very soapy In terms of its dynamics but also a lot of a lot of good humor So it. It's something that plays really well but the film that I probably at the time I wouldn't have said Oh. This is the better film I probably actually would have said. Terms of endearment deserves it. But I've since gone back to the right stuff Which comes out that same year in the right stuff is just so. I've I've been kind of into this moon stuff. This past year with the Fiftieth Anniversary of the moon landing and I've I've SURPRI. I surprised myself that I'm more interested in these films about Space travel than than I thought I would be But the way it handles kind of the the the breadth of the characters the scope of the narrative which covers a pretty a pretty substantial period. It could've just focused on You know a couple of the astronauts but instead it gives you you know you get the Chuck. Yeager story worked in That it's actually. It's actually quite quite rewarding so But I just. I watched it recently while I was watching. All of these moon films. And I'm like this film is just amazing. Really just it's well made While you know while acted just work so maybe you know this. I personally don't know where Philip Kaufman came from to this movie whether he had been doing. He did invasion of the body. Snatchers re the remake which is great from the Seventies. I guess it is your new kid. I guess unbearable lightness of being asked for sure programme. So yeah he kinda has like a period news kind of on it Trails off. Yeah I am equally as thrilled that you picked that movie because I love the fact that we get to talk about right stuff. I also love the fact that I don't have to pick it because I adore terms of endearment and it is. They're like apples and oranges to me. The experience of washing them totally different term than Dehrman so engrossing emotionally which I love I. It's one of my favorite movies especially in that genre and the right stuff is maybe my favorite movie about Space Race American technology. I think because it wasn't written or directed to focus on that. Yeah I mean it. The the initial intro. The the low voice talking about the sound barrier Is that brought me into the movie. More than just about any intro I can ever think of. It was amazing the acting as wonderful and it just keeps you through a story that you if you read about Ethan. Why would I wanNA watch two and a half hours on this and never pauses? It's three I think it's Oh. Yeah but the other thing is it's really it's really interesting reflection on image creation as you know because it's a film that could easily kind of make the media the bad guy in this in terms of how the media was responding to this but there was this sort of This interesting relationship between the space program and the media which was at times they fed off of each other and and then and then there's points where it turns but it doesn't it doesn't kind of demonize actually and even in showing the men who are participating in the program you see they're not just these straight up heroes in the way that you know. American narratives have built heroes. See there's just more complexity to them And Yeah it just it holds up. It does holds up and a lot. I can defend somebody choosing the right stuff that year. Because if you don't like terms of endearment there's no other possibility I mean what was the other one show. I love the big shell back in the day that does not it does not hold up. It's almost it's almost pandering. Yeah I mean when you watch it now and the dresser ever seen edible. It's yes forgettable. It's fine an antenna mercy's is so small. I do like Robert Duval's performance but it's small compared to the right stuff which is just so vast and encompasses everything and that's your fanny and Alexander. That's right because Bergman gets director nomination he does over Kaufman. Who does not go exactly. I didn't do my research. Yeah so yeah so I mean that's I mean really fanny and Alexander is in the group. That's like you know like you said with Ron. That blows there's that is just it's American bias. Skewing in a big way. Sure sure all right mark what's next for you all right your third and final. My third which this is intriguing because as opposed to the first two years or I felt that those years for movies were just very very weak. Even if you look things nominated not nominated things that got other nominations. But not beck's picture. They're weak years. This is the exact opposite my pick for nineteen ninety nine is the insider which lost to American beauty The other films nominated that year. Were the CIDER house rules. Match the most Ma- nominee. I think I could possibly think of during my lifetime. the Green Mile which I hate Other than some you know politically sensitive aspects isn't a bad movie and the sixth sense which I enjoyed my still enjoy now but I don't think anybody would argue that m night. Shyamalan should've been getting Oscars for it that year however stands out to me because of the movies that were around and were well known and well loved and did not get nominated over and above those movies. Those include being John Malkovich the town. Mister Ripley the end of the affair. The straight story all of which I really like as well as things like Magnolia and boys don't cry and learning beyond the classics last fall. Wonderful Nineteen Ninety nine the year the year that people say now is the year of the great year and Phil has already know. I like nineteen seventy nine and most people regard thirty nine as a wonderful year. Eighty nine eighty nine ninety. The Matrix ends up winning the most Oscars. Maybe yeah maybe winds are four. I think but I think that There was it was kind of a plurality year and so it was kind of like those like last year. Where you mean rhapsody one the most Oscar keep that in the record I A. I had a habit of tracking both tallying for previous years and then tracking since they started doing this. How many total movies got nominations in the top six categories picture director and all the acting? Yeah I think. Nineteen ninety nine is one of the years that had the most or close to the Momo's shares shared the wealth. And all the ones that I just mentioned got nominations in maybe an actor director. Is there a split between director and picture that year there is not American? Almost wins gets the like quint. Fact I guess fest actor if and that betting blank that like one of those one night raccoon rudeness Console Lamb's ears so you pick the inside. I did and having watched that also recently. I was most impressed. That as opposed to the American American beauty which to me is just a half baked updated. Version of Portnoy's complaint. I thought it was. I thought it was an updated. Three's company even but.

"The scarves guns because no it was still there. You Know God God I really wanted to be like okay and backwards like what's going on wide screen up right. Even they have this yeah even though they have the scars still not them. I don't know we did see plants on revenue. Nothing that's true. It was just very hairy up to the I stopped in the end. That if y'all just basically it was just a pelts backing up the second up to like Jeff Goldblum I backed up to Jeff Goldblum. I kind of laugh my ass off at the scene where you know he's at the Party and he's all like I am an intellectual rage monster and then he comes back to see his wife and and she and he's all pouty and he walks in and he goes into the steam steam room and like hangs his head out the window of the door. Like A fucking hound dog. And I'm like if that didn't embody that character beautifully like we don't even know have to anything else about if that moment just says everything about that character but at the same time I thought his relationship with his wife was really sweet. It was the the love each other. Yeah and he really loved her and supported her and believed her actually through the whole thing. But you know it's like doesn't mean he wasn't still a day it under star policemen about the body and he's just like I had a nose bleed just never on the same page with anybody. It's all wonderful woman. Worst hairstyle right now. I kind of liked her. I liked her Heidi Braids. I'll be perfectly honest with you. Philip Kaufman is the name of the director. I just looked it up saying the wholesaler. She's saying well. Why not meddle ships? Why we always? Oh you know what I'd space lower. Yeah I don't get any of this dialogue about the spaceships down maiden with the monkeys. I don't I don't get it and where it's coming from. Could we could play around..

"And it just works. It's chilling it's animalistic but it's not human and and it's kind of a precursor to the like Zombie. Sounds it's just wonderful. From production point of view the lighting the effects facts the sound. It's all just there so it's worth seeing for that reason and then three This this movie is one of the first horror movies I ever watched with my mom. And those of you who are regular listeners to this program we'll know that my mom got me into horror and I am still to this day very into horror and This was one of the I like horror films that I have memories of sitting down with her and watching and just like man. I want to share that joy. Find find someone that you enjoy and watch movie with them. which is what I did with you? Phoenix that even knowing it. That is why I did this exercise. We actually tell that story so On my bed right. Yup I've just cracked open a Coca Cola. Like heard the his- like taking a sip like I have a pre-thanksgiving I was making Thanksgiving food. It was not Thanksgiving yet but because I needed to practice because it was my job to make the food. I'm the setting the scene for you you all. These things are on my bare chest. Okay I've got my cat and I've got my TV on. And I send Steve A snapchat chat of where I met in the movie and we have not talked all day. Yeah and which is rare also and we are at like the same. Three minutes of the movie we Maybe two minutes ahead of Phoenix in the movie. Like if that at and that is obscene because we knew that we wanted to do this but we didn't plan which day we didn't like it's a really loose recording schedule. Well we kind of pat out ahead and so you know sometimes you record really soon. Sometimes who don't and three some Weird Act of God. We ended up watching this movie together from like eight hundred miles apart and it is a stellar viewing experience. I highly recommend it. If you've got a buddy that's not in your state or in your country and you still want to like watch. A movie with them turns out you can just do it. Just like press play at the same time on Hulu and just go and and it's not good because it's has like a stereotypical nineteen seventy-eight vibe. Where you're like this is a fun seventies movie? It's good all by itself. You could yell. Somebody was made made last year. Yeah I will say that the seventies vibes are off of the Goddamn chart one of the most seventies looking movies. Just ever like the big figures. I really love that kind of eras. Feel static And I think it's a really cool movie for that time period like there's something to be said for the summer of love has come and gone hippies or kind of becoming an established archetype that people are just going to have to deal with for a wile Viet Vietnam over and you're just starting starting to crest over what is going to be the eighties. And here's this Weird Wonderful Scifi movie about Oh people and this is an urban horror movie which is rare. You don't get a lot of urban horror People dealing with the conformity of everyday life. What I find fascinating about the body snatchers is that? Here's here's some spoilers. So if you don't want spoilers turn out the podcast go out to become back And the way that they work is they just kind of take over all the machinery of society. That's already there so they turn like factories into pod growing factories and they have the trash people. Take out the evidence that people are being transformed and it all just kind of seamlessly listlessly flows together. And if that's not a great way to explore the angst around what your society is becoming after this kind of individualist individualist revolution. That was supposed to be the counterculture of the sixties. I don't know what is it's perfect. Speaking of American individualism that is like the big screaming artistic flow with which this movie is coming because of of the director so Philip Kaufman is an American author. Who Does the American individualism thing all the time? He does it so perfectly. He was chosen. Chosen to do Tom Wolf's the right stuff which is like about American individualism. And you know this is not some random horror director director. Something this you know. The Skies Received Twenty Academy award nominations for different. Yes yeah and he is just so iconic connick you should. He did the outlaw. Josey Wales linking the raiders of the Lost Rei. Yeah Henry June rising sun like this is the guy. Well I think. What's cool to? Is that like it. Plays into a lot of the same themes as the time knockers and because of that the way that troops shakeout is very similar. So you have this whole replacement thing that you see a lot in like alien sci-fi And it has to do with the awesome individualism but but in both the Tommy knockers and invasion of the body snatchers. That replacement is in service of a kind kind of almost bureaucratic society. Right like the Tommy. Knocker is are like an engineer society. And they're just about like mechanical Michael Progress at the literal loss of their humanity. And that's pretty much also what the body snatchers snatchers or doing. They have this thing where it's like. Oh you don't you don't forget your memories you just you just a lot. Calmer you know you don't have emotions but that's okay because you can still make things and we're going to go to other planets next so it's it's this kind of really fascinating parallel. They come to independently. I don't think that Stephen King made that choice. Because that's how it shook out in the movie. I think that it just I is how that train of thought ends up going. Do you want me to say more about personnel. Yemen pleases him. Do as that's that's obviously you know. I love to play this game. With which one do I shoot so the lead character matthew. Is Donald Sutherland. Yoke yeah he plays as Barlow in the Rob Lowe version of Salems lot. He's also an ordinary people. And I have the needle and Mash and he is all of the ways million things but he it is connected to the Stephen King Universe he does. A great job has really wild Albert Einstein. Hair he is wonderful old free apart which is a very seventies thing we see that alive along. Yeah he's he plays kind of a hard boiled character which I like. He's very like I don't care what it takes. We're going to clean up this city but he's also look a health worker. which is a fun twist? Also y'all forget why New York City was like in nineteen eighty eight like. It's really really stingier. Yeah we also get Brooke Adams. WHO's not in a lot of things and she does really really well in her part As Elizabeth she was also Sarah in the dead zone. Oh that's interesting now. We've a lot of S K crossover. There's there's there's some horror bud light there's more but wait so she was the only person to get any like nods or nominations In this movie and and it was that that was why for for her performance. I will also point out that. She and Donald Sutherland's character at one point in the movie do a bunch of below cain into stay awake Yep Yep and it is a super nineteen seventy scene. Yeah the the pods can only replicate you. If you're a sleep so they're like I will just WANNA sleep. We'll do a bunch of uppers and not and it works out just fine. Yes To Continue Leonard Nimoy. Ah Rushes it he. He's also goods really hard not to be like so spock's in this right it's like you see how. How many like? Oh it's spark and then he starts acting like. Why is spock being so mean? What did they do to spock? Jeff Goldblum Dollars Jackal. Bloom as himself yes. Jeff Goldblum plays himself in this movie as he does in every movie. I also want to point out okay to personnel things. Real quick Rose Kaufman wife of the director. is the woman who argues with jacket. The Book Party. Oh that's cool. That's a fun little fanned. Also Kevin McCarthy is in this movie as running man Haw- Which I also want to point out the words running man? Yup which are GONNA be anyways. Halloween took a plane to all. You guys you guys know Stephen King but also played miles Bengal who is the Matthew Bengal like alternative in in the original invasion of the body. snatchers that's awesome. I love that. So that's what I have to say about personnel and you're always on it with the Trivia I never am and you always always are and I appreciate you for it. I'm glad that you appreciate it. It's things I loved about. This movie is that it just had this like brilliant cast and all these famous S S. You know people for sure. Hey I just got to bring up before we go Man Dog man-dong dogged this man dog. There's a man dog his dog man. He's got a man face he's still have to have to go into this. Because it made me literally jump in my seat. I was watching this movie alone and it'd been years since I answered forgotten a lot. What happens there's a kind of like rambling and and homeless dude who you know plays Banjo? And he hangs out on the stoop with his dog and he's like a feature of the city right so when the actor. Yeah he's just he's just like a guy he's a city guy and when the body snatchers come they our cloning not only him but his dog cloned other animals to which I think is super interesting and as this is happening one of the characters is like like arch shit running from a bunch of body centers so they can't stop and like save him but they kick the pod and they do this kind of like vague slow zoom in on the pot and it spits up some goop and you think at the time. Oh the like I bet they just saved that dude. That's cool like what a good detail later in in the movie. It's very important that they stay calm and collected that they can blend in with the other people quote unquote the body snatchers and not get caught. What and they're making their way through this line? It's going real good. And then this dog runs up and it enters the frame and within maybe half the second you realize.

"Of the children that were in goonies nineteen eighty five Now there's been a controversy. The film is said to be blunted. Rip Off of the more well known Own Kid horror adventure. which about kid horror of after the goonies ninety days what it really isn't there's no I don't see them? And then lastly Liam Niessen was considered for the role Dracula a role he would later go on to play in. And the Mel Brooks Film Dracula dead and loving it. So that's all I have this one now. This one is There is a bad good news. Here budget was twelve million. It only made three million eight hundred thousand dollars lost but it's one of those cult things because I see it every time you know. Halloween comes around this time of year. This movies on and People Watch it. Yeah and the the one good thing if if they can still sell. DVD's a long time after that was made when you're in a seasonal thing there's only so many seasonal ones like the Christmas story although they a lot of regenerate but the classic Christmas ones. You've seen one hundred times. You watch him every year he don't care it's just part of what you do you and it's Kinda that Thanksgiving or Halloween. You would look around and say what can we watch this consistent with the holiday and you don't see it until next next year but you do it. Then you have more family members in and GRANDPA's starts getting into it with the grandkids and pretty soon. It's everybody watches it. I grew up. I didn't grow up up but it had a niece. That when we when we visit we had to watch the grinch who stole Christmas which I liked anyway but that became a traditional thing whenever we had gift exchange before we did the gift exchange. We'd watch a couple of either those shorts or a particular movie like the Santa Claus or something like that so that became aim their family tradition. So yeah that's I mean if take a look at that one though it sounds kind of interesting. Yeah I mean you know you'd think all you got at these Dracula Frankenstein with metal that stuff. They're not campy so it's not a campy movie the comedy in it but I would Actually recommend so well again. Here's another you could call this sci fi but this falls under that because there's an influence here from outer space but the theme because this film was made in one thousand nine hundred fifty six. Yeah we're going back aways the overtone here is because does the Cold War was going on a lot of suspicion about mind control or being controlled Overrun and so on. And this film directed directed by Don Siegel and starring Kevin McCarthy Dana winner and a host of other character actors. Who you'll be quite familiar with if you watch the film again? It's black and white but this thing when I first saw it as a kid made a big impression I love to watch it. It's still scary. It's still something into a source of conversation. I'm talking about invasion of the body snatchers. This is the original not the remake by Philip Kaufman in nineteen eighteen. Seventy eight which takes place. It's in color. That's in color and takes place in San Francisco now not near as scary not his Concerning and this works again because black and white makes this just so frantic anyway. The story is for not familiar. The mayor with Santa Mira California Miles Bennett Dr Miles bandits baffled when all of his patients come to him with the same complaint one of their loved one and seems to have been replaced by emotional imposter they have no emotion nothing startled they. Don't care about anything. And despite others just denials and dismissing denials. He and his former girlfriend played by Dana. Wynter and his friend Jack Play by a Gab. Name of King Donovan. Soon discovered that the patient suspicions are true and and alien species of human duplicates grown from plant like pods is taking over the small town and the great fear. Is You have to stay awake because then they become horrified that this isn't a random thing. Those people that were taken over are actually raising seizing. These seedpods in field and distributing around so when they go to sleep they place one near under your bed you become one of them Who when you when you think about the films that have followed like the Stepford wives and some of these things this set the tone? And he's he he of course becomes aware of this is trying to get the authorities to believe him. Well the only he has to get out of town but they're trying to get him and he and his girlfriend are trying to escape but you're getting hired. Can they stay awake long enough to get out. It's a chilling thing and when they see what's happening they see these replicans people the look like them. That are coming out of these pod odd. It scared this will give you nightmares. Eighty eight it still resonates with me. I remembered I can see the scenes and I I watched it several years apart from the first time and whenever I see it or able to catch it on late show it is still a scary film. The reason that Don Siegel if that name rings any bells became a pretty good director some significant films in the one. That's most significant. As I told you couple of episodes ago I'd read. The biography was reading a biography of by Mark Elliott of of Clint Eastwood Don Siegel Legal Directed Dirty Harry and one of the other subsequent sudden impact one of the other ones. But it's Don Siegel's direction style while that influenced Clint Eastwood the most less dialogue more action shooting not long takes although Segal took more takes than clint clinched. One of those guys that they can be explained. I see it as good enough God. Let's move on. I'm playing golf at two o'clock get out of here that type of thing and if you watch Clint Eastwood Movies he actually knows what he's doing because if he does it that way he gets it he gets the actors he has respect the actors. It didn't WanNa waste their time or their performance. But anyway that's a little sidebar. There is he's credited by Eastwood is having significant impact on his film career. There it is very much of the body. snatchers nineteen fifty six. So my next and last movie that I have is is one of those movies we do watch. Every year it is called Hocus pocus. Eighteen ninety three Bette midler Bette. Midler Bette Midler Sarah Jessica Parker Caffeine. Jimmy this is directed by Kenny Tak- who any kids that are listening. No he directed the high school musical movies. And the Cheetah girls who basically the Disney a lot of the Disney movies that had the songs and Dancing and all right just so so bette midler sir. Just Parker Caffeine. Jimmy Play Winfred. Sarah era and Mary Sanderson's three hundred years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft returning to life. Thanks to a combination of a spell broken before their demise and the exit dental actions of Max. The new kid in town the sisters I have a one night to secure their continuing existence. So this is this is a pretty funny one. No this is actually you bet. Midler has said that this is her favorite role that she's ever played there had been reeler's there had been rumors of maybe second one. I don't know if they've completely well. They may come back currently at Disneyworld on certain nights they have what they call Mickey's not so scary. Halloween party which I have attended recently and one of their big stage shows at the end of the night. It's right in front of the castle. There's a stage and it has the Hocus pocus. It has these three sisters and people love it so so you know the demand and all that kind of stuff they actually make a second one. I'm not one hundred percent sure So there's a lot of cool scenes in this. She raises the guy from the dead. So there's a Zombie that's chasing number then ends up turning into a friend. There's the trick or treat that scene where the the three which is come in go on the street and the kids are running back and forth in their costumes and I like world. What's going on and they realize it's it's kids? Mary Sanderson has this Max. You can smell kids when they're coming smell so it's pretty funny. A couple of the Trivia. I have the role of Max Dennison. WHO's the main character in the film that was originally offered to Leonardo the Capri April back when he was young when he turned it down to appear in? What's eating Gilbert grape? which turned out to be a pretty good decision? Actually they lost money so I don't know critically was good for his career critical reviews on it and Jennifer Lopez allegedly addition for the role. That Sarah Jessica Parker plays stuff. That was interesting There's a lot of lines in the movie that actually are similar to lines. That bette Midler had done in in movies but one one thing I thought was really in the film. There's Mary he says to. To Builders Character Winfred Thou art divine and Bette Midler is known for her nickname. The divine with 'em I am so there's a lot of call outs for that Also seen where Gary Marshall and Penny Marshall are they're playing husband and wife life during the trick or treat because Garry Marshall's dressed up as Satan so they come to the house and you know the trick or treating or whatnot and they think it's the real devil invites hand and they're like oh master all this kind of stuff but I mean he's just handing out candies just normal guy that is that is all I have. The budget for this film was twenty eight million and it grows to thirty nine million dollars so the little bit of money but again it's kind of the other one it's like a like a classic you watch every year right so right and there's a great films to have around. I mean I like I like Bette midler couple of his films she made. I really like the wives club. Particularly I I thought he was terrific and that one or Wind beneath my wings. Well I'M GONNA close my third one is actually too do. But I'm putting them together because they're of the same. I said earlier my little introduction that some there are some films where you come face to face with evil incarnate if you will and we did a show on bad film adaptations and both of these movies which which were fairly successful if fact the first one says it's I was gonNA talk about says. It's the ninth grossing film of All Time in Canada the US. I don't know when that was said but they took one hundred ten million dollars when it came out. This movie came out in seventy three but both of these films are based on novels. I've read both the novels. You WanNA scary. Keep the lights on if you read any of these. Because it's GonNa scare the heck out of you and both of them were written. Written screenplays were written. The reason they work is that the author of the novel wrote the screenplay so it translates. Well they're well cast to with with top talent but the fact that the screenplay parallels the book so when you read the book and it's all the movie it's chilling in either instance that I do that more often. You know sometimes the office not alive but yeah that's true at or sometimes he heaves the stickler for staying with the book and a director. said it can't translate that way we gotta short handed sort of you. Don't want it then get. What's the old creative? Differences is what they say. It's always creative differences. So that's sometimes it didn't happen in this case however the second film I'm talking about. They made some sequels and he did not write those does he only wrote one book but the first one I'm talking about is the exorcist. which made a star out of Ellen Burstyn and it's a terrific film if you you haven't seen it? It's a terrific book. As I was telling Eddie I I was. I was three quarters through the book when a group of when it opened went to the I hadn't finished the book and we went to the movie and I knew what was happening and it would. It was exactly the book and I envisioned something. Sometimes you don't vision things the same way it comes on the screen. I was pretty much in lockstep with what was happening on the screen for obvious reasons now because the same guy wrote it and I didn't know how it ended though they hadn't finished a book so I'm sitting there with everybody else. What in the heck is GonNa Happen here and if you don't know the story it's one of the most profitable label horror movies ever made and it's a tale of exercises them so there's a religious overtone here we're talking the devil? You learn about the devil. Well here we go taking taking a taking form. Someone Young Reagan. That's Linda Blair. This made her a star too. She starts acting odd levitating speaking in cantons in a worried mother whose an actress who is in Washington. DC Georgetown University. I believe it is. They have Catholic priests and while while she's on the movie seen her daughter's having all this stuff going on medical help but they can't find anything wrong whether so they bring in a local young priest first. He thinks she may be seized by the devil. He makes request to perform an exorcism. And the Church sends an expert the exorcist derives and as Max Van Cedo the classic Swedish actor to help with the difficult job..

"Zayn goes and phoebe the little the little sister She's playing tea or something and he comes up and you know he's coming and then the scene goes to something else and then they're like guys guys like well. I want come see my new friend and it was Frankenstein holding her holding her finger. I and that is taken from the movie. which was redone in young Frankenstein? All seen that big creature is accepted by a young child now in the original. I think he throws her in the water. If I recall it doesn't then well new rich but that whole thing about she doesn't doesn't seem as a bad guy and I mean this movie. He actually isn't She teaches them how to talk. Bogus stuff like that. uh-huh and zoom up to date on more modern vernacular and he. He plays a big part of the end on what happens at the end. Couple of funny parts. The guy comes comes into the police station and says put me the cage. Put me the credit mature into a wall but of course a little while later. He's he's in the back of a van and then he turns into the wolf and he kills people. The mummy is one scene where he jumps up on the truck. The kids are trying to get away and the the one the middle school guy had bone marrow and he took a part of the mummies strap from the money and then shot the tree then all of a sudden around then all of a sudden mummies so there's stuff like that and one of the famous lines that sticks with me that I knew even before watches again. Is there in there in the House and the wolf names there and and Horace who is nicknamed Fat Kid They tell him kick him kick him or accounts. So he he kicks the Wolfman and then he goes Wolfman has Nord's so it's a the quote that I remember when a couple Trivia points. Mary Ellen trainor.

We'd watch a couple of either those shorts or a particular movie like the Santa Claus or something like that so that became aim their family tradition. So yeah that's I mean. Take a look at that one though. It sounds kind of interesting. Yeah I mean you know you'd think all you got at these Dracula Frankenstein with metal that stuff. They're not campy so it's not a campy movie. The comedy in it but I would Actually recommend so well again. Here's another you could call this sci fi but this falls under that because there's an influence here from outer space but the theme because this film was made in one thousand nine hundred fifty six. Yeah we're going back a ways. The overtone here is because does the Cold War was going on a lot of suspicion about mind control or being controlled Overrun and so on. And this film directed directed by Don Siegel and starring Kevin McCarthy Dana winner and a host of other character actors. Who you'll be quite familiar with if you watch the film again? It's black and white but this thing when I first saw it as a kid made a big impression I love to watch it. It's still scary. It's still something into a source of conversation. I'm talking about invasion of the body snatchers. This is the original not the remake by Philip Kaufman in nineteen eighteen. Seventy eight which takes place. It's in color. That's in color and takes place in San Francisco now not near as scary not his Concerning and this works again because black and white makes this just so frantic anyway. The story is for not familiar. The mayor with Santa Mira California Miles Bennett Dr Miles bandits baffled when all of his patients come to him with the same complaint one of their loved one and seems to have been replaced by emotional imposter they have no emotion nothing startled they. Don't care about anything. And despite others just denials and dismissing denials. He and his former girlfriend played by Dana. Wynter and his friend Jack Play by a Gab. Name of King Donovan. Soon discovered that the patient suspicions are true and and alien species of human duplicates grown from plant like pods is taking over the small town and the great fear. Is You have to stay awake because then they become horrified that this isn't a random thing. Those people that were taken over are actually raising seizing. These seedpods in field and distributing around. So when you're they go to sleep they place one near under your bed you become one of them Who when you when you think about the films that have followed like the Stepford wives and some of these things this set the tone? And he's he he of course becomes aware of this is trying to get the authorities to believe him. Well the only he has to get out of town but they're trying to get him and he and his girlfriend are trying to escape but you're getting hired. Can they stay awake long enough to get out. It's a chilling thing and when they see what's happening they see these replicans people the look like them. That are coming out of these pod odd. It scared this will give you nightmares. Eighty eight it still resonates with me. I remembered I can see the scenes and I I watched it several years apart from the first time and whenever I see it or able to catch it on late show it is still a scary film. The reason that Don Siegel if that name rings any bells became a pretty good director some significant films in the one. That's most significant. As I told you couple of episodes ago I'd read. The biography was reading a biography of by Mark Elliott of of Clint Eastwood Don Siegel Legal Directed Dirty Harry and one of the other subsequent sudden impact one of the other ones. But it's Don Siegel's direction style while that influenced Clint Eastwood the most less dialogue more action shooting not long takes although Segal took more takes than clint clinched. One of those guys that they can be explained. I see it as good enough God. Let's move on. I'm playing golf at two o'clock get out of here that type of thing and if you watch Clint Eastwood Movies he actually knows what he's doing because if he does it that way he gets it he gets the actors he has respect for the actors. It didn't WanNa waste their time or their performance. But anyway that's a little sidebar. There is he's credited by Eastwood is having significant impact on his film career. There it is very much of the body. snatchers nineteen fifty six. So my next and last movie that I have is is one of those movies we do watch. Every year it is called Hocus pocus. Eighteen ninety three Bette midler Bette. Midler Bette Midler Sarah Jessica Parker Caffeine. Jimmy this is directed by Kenny Tak- who any kids that are listening. No he directed the high school musical movies. And the Cheetah girls who basically the Disney a lot of the Disney movies that had the songs and Dancing and all right just so so bette midler sir. Just Parker Caffeine. Jimmy Play Winfred. Sarah era and Mary Sanderson's three hundred years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft returning to life. Thanks to a combination of a spell broken before their demise and the exit dental actions of Max. The new kid in town the sisters I have a one night to secure their continuing existence. So this is this is a pretty funny one. No this is actually I. Bette midler has said that this is her favorite role that she's ever played there. had been reeler's there'd been rumors of maybe second one. I don't know if they've completely well. They may come back currently at Disneyworld on certain nights they have what they call Mickey's not so scary. Halloween party which I have attended recently and one of their big stage shows at the end of the night. It's right in front of the castle. There's a stage and it has the Hocus pocus. It has these three sisters and people love it so so you know the demand and all that kind of stuff they actually make a second one. I'm not one hundred percent sure So there's a lot of cool scenes in this. She raises the guy from the dead. So there's a Zombie that's chasing number then ends up turning into a friend. There's the trick or treat that scene where the the three which is come in go on the street and the kids are running back and forth in their costumes and I like world. What's going on and they realize it's it's kids? Mary Sanderson has this Mac. She can smell kids when they're coming smell so it's pretty funny. A couple of the Trivia. I have the role of Max Dennison. WHO's the main character in the film that was originally offered to Leonardo the Capri April back when he was young when he turned it down to appear in? What's eating Gilbert grape? which turned out to be a pretty good decision? Actually they lost money so I don't know critically was good for his career critical reviews on it and Jennifer Lopez allegedly addition for the role. That Sarah Jessica Parker plays stuff. That was interesting There's a lot of lines in the movie that actually are similar to lines. That bette Midler had done in in movies but one one thing I thought was really in the film. There's Mary he says to. To Builders Character Winfred Thou art divine and Bette Midler is known for her nickname. The divine with 'em I am so there's a lot of call outs for that Also seen where Gary Marshall and Penny Marshall are they're playing husband and wife life during the trick or treat because Garry Marshall's dressed up as Satan so they come.

that's one I wasn't talking he wasn't we are will be on the set I'm talking to to Donald Sutherland you know is an imposing figure for Philip Kaufman was guiding us and I remember us improvising a little bit that wasn't exactly in there I wasn't even talking to was I'm not talking about a man like him very bad kid I think I put some of that stuff in there and that part and the way I'm sort of half hopefully you know unrecognized unacknowledged you know those I knew some about that I saw Donald Sutherland in a movie called Joanna look that up you won't know that movie was a British little arch offering I think was it maybe his first thing and so I did this movie with them and then I saw a mash of course and then did the Altman film part of the Altman six family a little little bit do having done those couple of movies and then so by the time I did this is seventy eight I said yes Donald forecaster and I I don't think I ever told you the story Donald about seeing you in Joanna an ad cetera etcetera you know so the trees and was I've been pretty pretty little case I think that at this point in your career I'm going to stipulate that you have reached iconic status and you know being an icon is partly about you know you're here Kerr extraordinary guests you know your your juried art that you've created it's also in a way that could be difficult about like you know icons are

five not breaking my good armed in order to Pat myself on the back to see outrageously because I'm not really the I'm just saying that I'm enjoying myself and that I do stuff like this that because of that I think is something that people seem to enjoy and I do other stuff in this vein where I sort of you know along with an incomplete pre and just sort of under unload upload the the extent of my pleasure of you know is being you know doing whatever I do whether it's playing music because there's a lot of good aspects that playing music which I like and playing with people I do have a genuine I guess it comes from that original mais durch technology to some of my animation comes from just letting myself alone really at least that's what I've tried to do but I think I've you know I've I've done it to one extent or another and and put my and got interested in other people sometimes or something outside myself and then there I go and I'd gives rise to whatever I seem to be doing in an on calculated way so whatever comes out of it is kind of this okay with me it doesn't seem false or not part of me or not having come out of me and what do I care anyway even if it's not even if it puts

We will tell you chances are it was kinda never questioned what genre eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is it is a rom com. Never worry who that woman in that thing was the one you saw on the plane, you know which one I'm talking about with that funny scene where she gets drunk than that twist. It was an Hathaway. No longer will one entry on films IMDB page threaten you with a free associative trip through posters that look weird and titles that sound, embarrassing, and intriguing from one half recognized face to another leaving you three hours later still in front of your computer the popcorn gone, and with no idea what you and your partner are going to watch. Just watch Titanic. Chris, you don't seem like yourself. Something's not right to me here. Chris doing invasion of the body snatchers. And in the first in podcast history. I think this is the first movie we've done where I watched three versions. And I think you watched four versions of this. I don't even know if I mean aside from something like hamlet, or the bible, Jesus and Shakespeare win stuff like this. What else has been filmed as many times, you wouldn't say something like JAMES BOND because those are all different. Yeah be. This has got to be the top never thought of that from one book. I mean, maybe something like Emma or Jane Eyre. Yeah. I started reading the Jack Finney novel ever read that before. I haven't it's like living in the side down. It's you're not reading this and thinking while this is a really well, written. Right. Obviously original piece of work so pretty wooden. Everyone speaks exactly the same, even when they're supposed to be not. It has a little new our humor of the sort that you see in the Don Siegel version, first of all, we have to set the rules here we are going to be talking about. Well, we're definitely talking at least three versions. I don't know if the one the other fourth one that you saw is probably not even really worth talking about only in terms of some of the misbegotten choices, we're going to be talking about the nineteen fifty-six black and white Don Siegel invasion of the body snatchers. We're also going to be talking about the one that haunted all of our nineteen seventies eighties childhoods invasion of the body. Stature is nineteen seventy eight with Donald Sutherland, and we're going to be talking about the nineteen Ninety-three Abel Ferrara version, starring Cary, Kinney, and Gabrielle Anwar. And then you saw the two thousand three two thousand three thousand seven it's called the invasion, and Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig and Jeremy Northam where forgot existed. Jeremy, there were, there was a moment there that he was everywhere. And now he's gone gone. He was just in something. I'm sure to his mother and his no age. He was in something big recently, he's on the crown dude. To park. Well. That was in that era when he was around. He was like, everyday eat in season, two of the crown after never even really hearing about nineteen Ninety-three and having zero expectations of it. I think it has a lot of interesting things going for it. And it has a lot of improvements in certain things. It uses a military base setting the has a more nineties feeling mixed up family dynamic. It sort of puts the perspective through a teenager slash twenty-something and her younger, brother. It has a lot of interesting things going for it. But I think that any three one suffers from third act problems, the seventy eight one actually is really at its best in its last shots. The only other diagnosis I would say for the ninety three also suffers from early nineties, independent cinema issue because Dutch angles and the smoke and all even more like it's technologically too weird place where it looks a little bit cheap because of the video able Ferrara is fascinating, derive. And it's really good that way. And yet, there are some elements of it, that are a little bit wooden, but the independent movie angle of it also makes it exciting. It's a different kind of hero. It's a different interpretation of we'll get to. This is where comparing all four of them. It's funny how certain elements will start in one or let's start in the second one will then continue on the, the scream. For example, wasn't in the first the scream in the able for our ninety three I have to say my jaw was on the floor the entire time. He managed to take something I knew was coming. Absolutely made it crazy. Insane totally over the top. It doesn't have the sole rending impact of the nineteen seventy eight Sutherland scream, or any of those screams, and the seventy eight one does have this seventies sixties hangover thing going on shot in San Francisco. I think moving it from the suburban setting of the fifty six one to a city setting in nineteen seventy eight you could just feel. Your mom's Chevy chevette like outta gas because of the country was fucked up and all kinds of shit's going on trying to get in touch with themselves. But we're just lost that movie captures that and city alienating that all with if we live in a city. Yeah. Being alone amongst multitudes, the great stuff, and Philip Kaufman's version, seventy eight is a lot of the simplest stuff. Works best yes, there's a lot of just creepy visual stuff. I would even add to that the chase the actual chess. All that's one thing that all four of them will have it's because it was black and white, or because it was still a relatively undeveloped area. But something about the chase up the spoiler for nineteen fifty-six up the stairs, up the stairs into that hilt was, they're going towards the coalmine to see the crowd growing behind them to see them gathering pace, I found that particularly effective is one of the reasons why this keeps getting made the simplicity of the fact that you don't really need a tremendous amount of special effects, the really don't. Need that much? Because the creepy nece is coming from the acting. Yeah. Show, much has been written attaching political significance to the fifty six one in the seventy eight one where really none exists in the is in the minds of the filmmakers writer, themselves talk about it certainly in the fifty six a B movie studio making a b picture with be actors and ABI director at the time, even though Don Siegel is, I think a legend in genius, and they were not trying to make a red scare communist bathing treatise about McCarthyism and conformity in American side, and they're just making basically a monster pick without a monster. But, you know you ask, why does it keep getting remade? One of the reasons is because of that simplicity that anything project it on. It certainly is fifty six people saw, like this is about the city of communism. And I think I've read somewhere. I don't know. The knee jerk. Anti-communism was more of the thren because it is so simple. Not only there's no monster. But you're just looking around and starting to doubt everything that you've seen before. So the nineteen fifty-six one had you seen it before. I hadn't really impressed with I was expecting it to be a B movie and it is. But it also has quality. I watched that then I watched the seventy eight one again and then I watched the ninety three one not in the same night. But my expectation was reversed. I thought, well, the seventy eight one is the good one is fifty six one is going to be the sort of Janke source material on that was remade in seventy eight and his better know you love the seventy eight one, if your childhood was haunted, by the seventy eight one, I encourage you to go back and watch the fifty six one because it's so different but it's so good. It's so efficient and well-made and Don Siegel, who made escape from Alcatraz, Charlie varick. The first dirty Harry movie just working director. Like we're talking about working actor a working director of his time, I've been reading his book, he's got really funny book that unlike many other books by. Directors is so short and succinct about every movies every movie just gets like two or three pages. He is not one to go into or his own asked about what he was thinking or doing Don Siegel felt that they ruined his movie by tacking on the framing device. Right. Which is crazy guy is found on the street ranting and raving is brought into hospital doctors examining him and he's telling the doctor this whole crazy story. And at the end of the nineteen fifty-six spoiler alert just as he's about to get dragged off because he's obviously ranting and raving lunatic. And he's proven right? I think they're like, oh, there was a big truck crash on the highway and never saw these things. Pods. Give me the BI we'll handle this, and then they panicked. Kevin McCarthy who's got this relieved look on his face, and they hated it because the original ending was going to be so much better. Well departs from the book because you said, you haven't finished the I read the description of the book and the, the description says that the ending of the book that the plants this yours decide to leave earthly only have a five year lifespan in the book, and I think they realized they don't have enough time. Premiums are going to be too difficult to conquer. Okay. Well, one way or the other they leave. Yes, crisis averted by by virtue of humanity's. I don't know if our prevarication laziness so keep doing nothing people. But the fifty six movie version was originally going to end much the way the seventy eight version, which is on a uncertain note. It's in the movie in a sense, because just before the doctor is pulled into the hospital after being found ranting and raving on the highway. And I think the original ending in the fifty six version was going to be him turning to camera and saying, they're coming. And your next, and that was going to go to black and that was a great ending. That would have been course the studio didn't think that people would understand what was going on. So the insisted not only on a framing device, which was the thing we just described, but also that little voice over that happens throughout the fifty six version. I don't really mind that because that's kind of in keeping with the new our vibe also. I think a lot of har- that's a big convention of somebody like I know you think crazy, but listen to me, and they described the story. Yes. 'cause I'm I actually liked the framing device, except yes would have been great if the end they're like, okay, crazy guy. And then they just locked him away in a padded cell. Let's play a clip from the nineteen fifty-six version..

We're going to crown the dummy of the year. Big Estonia, two thousand eighteen was straight out of context. Nikki show spies all of that fun stuff. Yeah. So fly James Friday back tomorrow, three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. And we've been talking about reboots we were doing we did a whole bunch of TV reboot some some which were good and some which were not. And and now we're talking about movie remakes or reboots three one two nine eight one seven two hundred. We're concentrating on the ones that are really great not the remix that suck like the planet of the apes remake that I mentioned earlier that Tim Burton directed. But now some some good ones. And sometimes it's it's not a good idea. A you think now don't remake that please don't touch that. Don't go back and do that. And then it turns out to be really great. And that's the case with some of these. Yeah. So the first one that pops into my head as far as movie remakes, go that are that are great. Obviously, John carpenter's. The thing is the first one the first one that comes to mind. You know, the original Howard hawks the thing from another world is is great. It's it's great. Carpenter chose to not so much be a strict remake of hawks is movie. But he concentrated on the the original story that it's based on it's based on story coat called who goes there. And so he base it on that instead of making a straight remake of the hawks movie. And I think carpenters version is better. Than than the original. And I really love the original. The original is a really terrific film. There's no question about it. But I think harbors version is better. In the history of carpenters version is just so maddening to as we talked about before because when he came out and almost ended his career it completely bombed. Up until that point. It was the biggest budget he'd ever worked on the first time he ever worked with a major studio because the movie before it was was independent than it was escape from New York was the was the movie before and after embassy small little independent distribution companies that we worked with. But this was a universal film. This was a big big universal film. They gave him they gave him a pretty good sized budget. And he ended up making a classic. And now, you know, when when when it came out, nobody went to see it. The critics were not kind to it like they not at all and it bombed at the box office like totally bombed at the box office. In the next movie. He made. He he was asked to do when he took the job, and he made a really great movie out of it. He took the job, but he took it because it was a commercial job, and he made Christine next and at that time. When he made that movie in nineteen Eighty-three, everything would Stephen king's name on it was making money. Like, it was the biggest like any Stephen King adaptation anything that? Stephen King wrote box office gold and Christine made a lot of money. And it was it. Got him back got him back on his feet. But for a while there. He didn't know if he was gonna work after the thing, it was such a disaster. And now all these years later, the thing is considered like one of the greatest science fiction horror movies ever made. A lot of people think it's carpenters best movie. I just you know, as as being the carpenter fan that I am since his first since his first well since Halloween, and then I went back to his first two movies. But, you know, for being, you know, the the fan that I am it was it was just aggravating to see what has happened to so many of his movies, but big trouble China was a bomb and now everybody loves it. But I think the thing might be the thing I think might be the best remake of all time like the most the best remake of all time. So. Let's see. Here's a rich on WGN, rich. Hi, good morning. I agree with you more about the same. And that's a rarity that a a remake betters. You know, totally better student. Yeah. But the thing is definitely one. I was going to mention that one. But you beat me to it. I am not going to say these are better. But they really did hold their own. Maybe they're better. But they're definitely good one of them was the body snatchers. Yeah. Seventy nine was the invasion of the body snatchers. Now there are four versions of that that movie has been remade three times. Go I I'm remembering your with Donald Sutherland the one with Donaldson. Donald Sutherland is great. There's just no question about it. And some people like it more than down Siegel's version. But you know, they went on to be remade two more times after that to check those out. Yeah. The first the third the third one is just called body snatchers. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety ninety three and it was directed by Abel Farrar. And then the fourth one was called invasion with Daniel Craig. Nicole kidman? Okay. That's probably why I missed it. Because they were going by the same title, right? Yeah. And some room, but the down southern will one that's still up causing. Yeah. Philip kaufman. Interesting. Another one that I was surprisingly good. I didn't have high expectations for it. But it was satisfying. When I saw it the remake of the Wolfman with species will they'll Toro? Yeah. I liked that movie too. I thought I thought the the the version of the Wolfman with Benicio del Toro was really terrific, but it tanked at the box office like nobody wants to see it. And then they tried to read because universal wanted to make modern day versions of their of their monster movies, you know, to to reboot the to have a whole rebooted series of monster movies on the first one in that series was the Wolfman didn't do very well. And then they put it on hold. And then they said, well, let's do it a whole new modern take on it and change these up, and that's when the mummy came out with with Tom Cruise, and it was terrible it made no money. And you know, they were they had in the works. They had Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde they had they were going to do all the classic all the classic universal monsters. We're gonna. Get rebooted, but because of the response to the mummy and because the movie sucked. They they shelved that. So, but yeah, yeah. But I like the Wolfman so rich thanks for the call three one nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. If you would like to jump in. We're talking about remixing, it's really crazy because. I remember when. When body snatchers came out that the able for our nineteen Ninety-three version. I mean, I like I liked liked his movies. But I was like oh, man. I don't think they should make another version of this. And it was terrific. And then when I heard about invasion, invasion, invasion was a troubled production, the one with Nicole Kidman, and and and Daniel Craig it was a troubled production. They you know, they had to do. I think the director went over by can't remember who directed it. But the the director went over budget, and he I think they took the movie away from it and re cut it, but it was a troubled production. And it didn't come out when they said they were going to release it. So it said on the shelf for a little while. So it had a bad reputation. Even before it hit theaters. So I kind of low expectations, but I ended up really liking that one too. So all four versions of the invasion of the by snatchers. I like all four of them. I think all four of them have merit and are good. And I think the in fact. I think all four of them are really good. The first three I think are great. You know, I think I think they're great invasion is really really good. He just has some issues. Can you see? Directed that Oliver Hirsch, bagel, Nick. Mctigue? I'll see that. So they gave him a second. They they have two credits. They have James Matijas on credited. But yeah. So that's what happened. They fired. This guy originally directed. They fired him. So I knew there was some some problems with that. Let's see here's Diane on WGN. Hi, diane. Hi Nikolai at her. Right. All right now, you got a good one here. This this one has to remakes, and I love all three of these movies island of Dr Moreau. Oh, yeah. The island. Island of lost souls. Is you like lately different title ya? Dan, you hold on a second time. You like the third one. Oh, yeah. I love violet brand. Oh, my. Up. Oh my God. I hate that movie is one of the one of the worst movies ever made. Because he's in it. The cast. They really plump at that. All right. Okay. Lancaster lovebird Lang. You'll all the seventies version is really good. The island of Dr Moreau from the seventies is really good. Michael York, Lancaster. I really enjoyed it. But man that one with Brando. Oh my God. Because he's in it. And I love David dill. It's new to I loved it. Yeah. And I love for Roosevelt. But man. All right. Thanks, dan. All right. Thank you that. I have to say I I've got to say this. That is the first person that I've ever talked to who liked the the nineties version of island of Dr Moreau, Dan, seriously. That's historic. That's the first person I've ever talked to who liked the Marlon Brando version. Val Kilmer version of of the doctor Moreau. What's really what? What's what's much more entertaining? And interesting is the story behind the making of that movie because it's unbelievable. It is truly truly unbelievable about what the way that movie was made. What was happening on the set? How insane? It was. Yeah. There's a documentary about about that movie about the the original director how he got fired. It's just it's a it's an it's unbelievable story. But man that the oh my God yet movie. Wow. Well, God bless you, Diana. I'm glad I'm glad you enjoyed it. But. Right. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. We're talking remakes. We were talking TV reboots a little bit earlier on as well. Make sure you tune in for season three of one day at a time which will start streaming on Netflix tomorrow.
