There was a moment where I stepped on stage in sequin Leotard. That leaves nothing to the imagination and one point.

It's nineteen seventy-five. And Freddie Mercury. And the members of Queen are in the office of a record executive played by Mike Myers tacking about the record. They're about to release, Freddie, Mercury speaks. I recall the album a night at the opera. Are you aware that no one actually likes opera are like Opal? Do you? I do. Don't misunderstand otting.

Something that will make people feel belongs to them mixon rest with cross boundaries will will speaking bloody tongues. If we want to. Rami Malik welcome to fresh air. It's so much fun to watch you as Freddie Mercury. How did you get the part of, Freddie? Mercury. Did you ask to addition? Or were you invited? I was invited. Which is feels like a very rare thing, especially when you're on dishing for someone as magnificent and icon ick. As Freddie Mercury I was do shooting mister robot and the producers Graham king Denis O'Sullivan called me out to Los Angeles. And I knew what the meeting was about. So I started watching as much archival footage as possible sat down in their office in about five six hours later, I left that office being told that I had the job something that I did not quite believe driving back home. But I guess as append out. I did it was singing part of your addiction. It ended up being part of that audition. I warn them. I was not a singer. I told him don't play the piano. What I do when I'm out on dancefloor could be considered something having to do with rhythm. But probably not. I ended up flying myself out to London because I wanted to be prepared. It was never officially Greenland yet at this point. And I started practicing everything singing, piano. I started working with a movement coach because I knew that one day we were gonna do a proof of concept, which means they were going to take me to Abbey Road. And film me singing is Freddie, and they had a camera on me as well. So they wanted to see my physical interpretation as well. So I had to sing to prove that ah some point in the future. Whatever I was doing would sync up to the way, Freddie, sang eventually. I don't think anybody really wanted to hear my voice as much as they would love to hear Mr. mercury's. Yeah. All the music credits in the movie, a at the end of the credits are attributed to Queen. So. So you sang. As you were filming. But the music that we're hearing is actually, Freddie Mercury and Queen. It's actually Malcolm -ation, I will say the large majority of is, Freddie Mercury. I went out every day and sang at the top of my lungs because that's the only way to match what he's doing. He's giving everything hundred ten percent always and in order to sink it up properly use bits of my voice in the beginning. It will lead in with my voice, and then pick up for the majority using Freddie mercury's voice, and you know, tops entails as you call it and what I quickly realized was no one can sing. Like, freddie. Mercury. And nor can I it very difficult to get my voice up to those high notes. And at some point my voice breaks and breaks pretty quickly when I'm trying to ascend. What Freddie Mercury can do? There's actually a scene where you're at the piano singing sketch of. He mean rhapsody, and your voice breaks is any of that you. Yes. Some of that is actually me we have an incredible sound engineer named Paul Massey. On their who found ways to I think deceive all of us. But yet there are parts that are me. I think the the parts that break. Yes. That would be considered Rami Mallon. She we just hear that bit. Sure, let us know if you can tell which part is you, okay? God. This is a scene from the movie Bahamian rhapsody where Romney Malik, Freddie. Mercury is at the piano in his living room singing Baheen rhapsody. Okay. So the final note his voice breaks. What are we hearing? Gosh, the majority of that is obviously, Freddie Mercury. But somehow they've they've found a way to to me in there. And I can't I really can't tell you feel so seemless to me. And that's I think one of the greatest aspects of this film is even I watch it, and I cannot tell now I just want to reiterate that the majority of this. I mean, so much of it is Freddie's voice, and I never want to ever step in and pretend that I lent myself to so much of this. So now that you've taken singing lessons are you more comfortable singing. No, no. I say, I'm more comfortable dancing, more comfortable being onstage. I enjoy the piano. Now, I find meditative at one point plate upside down in the film. And I thought oh of all the challenges you're giving me here page twenty and the stage direction. Save Freddie, plays bohemian rhapsody upside down, and I thought come on give a break. Did you not play at all when you started? No, I'd never played piano. Never touched a piano. I had to learn the Qatar as well for crazy little thing called love, which didn't make it into the film. But everything was it was like going to a conservatory of music every day one hour to hour spent singing, two hours PNO for hours and movement and choreography it was it was. Fascinating is going back to school. So what can you play on your own only bohemian rhapsody, and we are? Noodle every once in a while. So I'll call those original works. So beaming rhapsody is book ended by a basically like a reproduction of the famous Queen performance at Live Aid in nineteen eighty-five and for people who don't remember or weren't alive. Then that was this you've benefit concert in nineteen eighty five for for the benefit of people suffering from the famine Ethiopia and your performance there were multiple stages for this the Queen. I send your performance the green performance was in Wembley stadium in London to an audience of seventy two thousand people. So you as Freddie Mercury had to reproduce that performance. No anyone can see that performance on YouTube. It's easy to see. So I know you had no problem watching the actual Live Aid performance, which is considered one of the great performances in rock history. So I'm sure you must have studied at moved by move. Including learning, Freddie, mercury's microphone technique is. He he he'd basically be handed the mic on the stand. But not not on the base. So is just like the the the poll with the Mike on it. And then he'd use that as a prop, you know, strutting around on stage and using it as a strumming like it was a good tar putting it across his his groin as if it were a large phallus, you know of all the other act tricks. So talk to us about like studying, Freddie, Mercury during the Live Aid concert. And and also like how he used the microphone. Well, I walked around London for about two months with this half. Mike, and I think now. When you say half, Mike does that mean like the poll with the Mike on it? Like, the correct. Yeah. You walking around with the Mike owner. Yeah. Walked around with the Mike attached to it. I just never wanted to lose focus of what I was doing. And that was a very constant reminder. Sometimes I would tuck the microphone into my backpack. But otherwise, you just look like you're walking around with a piece of metal. And that's quite scary. These days as it looks like a weapon. Exactly. So I kept a Mike on it. Just to remind people. Hey, I'm not out to hurt. Anyone? It was the first thing we shot Live Aid day one we came out. And it was it's that massive crane shot that goes through the audience and comes right up around the piano and opens to Freddie, Mercury myself playing him singing bohemian rhapsody and talk about a baptism by fire. I had never worked that hard in in my life on one particular. Killer piece of filming every day. I spent hours with a movement teacher named paulie Bennett. And I always wanted to keep it very spontaneous. But at the same time honor this fantastic performance that he and Queen gave. And it's like you said there are things he does with that microphone that at his defy what the mere mortal can do he whips around with it with you know, violence at times with elegance. He uses as the era guitar sometimes right in front of one of the greatest guitar players of all time, Brian May so as Brian May is crushing on guitar here is Freddie Mercury era guitar in. And if he's still a magnificent thing to watch it's so compelling and only he could get away with that. So I was wondering when you're onstage. First of all, did you. Film the Live Aid concert at Wembley. And were there. Seventy two thousand people in the audience was that like footage from the actual concert. That was like put in in a seamless way to make it look like you are performing to the audience that was actually there in one thousand nine hundred five was the CGI like what was the setting who is actually there Wimbley doesn't exist at that. When there's a new Wembley stadium. It doesn't exist. We recreated it on an airfield just outside London. And we did bring in fans actors to be to be Queen fans who actually work weaned fans, and I thought, oh, that's that's terrific will have a lot of support. But at one point I thought well, what if I don't live up to their expectations. This could be the worst thing. I maybe should've just got people who have never heard of Queen. And that could have given them a great show. So everything felt daunting. From that perspective. We did have at some point thousands of background actors their supporting actors, but never, of course, seventy two thousand that would have taken up the entire budget to be able to do something like that. And logistically would been impossible. It takes guts, if you're Freddie Mercury and you're performing in front of an audience of seventy two thousand people in this use stadium. And you're starting your set by sitting at the piano, alone playing a few chords that everybody knows that they're already going crazy because of that. And then you start singing solo for while before the ban comes in did the confidence where off on you. I don't know how confident you are. But did you become more confident embracing your Rami Malik south after having embraced, Freddie, mercury's confidence? There was a moment where I stepped on stage in sequin Leotard. That leaves nothing to the imagination. And at one point. I said, listen, if you're going to play a man who Iraq this thing out like nobody's business and made everything his own and spontaneously combusted in the most magnificent way on stage, you better own this. And I'll tell you by the end of shooting we came to another concert sequence. And I asked Julian day the costume designer. I said, you know, the the sequin Leotard he said, yes, I said, do you think you can make that for me and ruby red? And he laughed. She looked at me said, well, we've come a long way having. Another thing. We should mention is your teeth. He had what four extra teeth and in his upper mouth. And and he had you know, very buck teeth as a result. And so you had fake teeth that you used made for you by a famous like Hollywood prosthetic teeth designer what was it like for you to wear them? Like, how did it change your feeling of your mouth and your ability to talk and sink? Like, not only did you have to seeing, you know for the performance, even though they weren't necessarily gonna use your voice, you still had a sing. And so you're doing something you're not used to doing singing, and you're doing it with teeth at aren't even yours. Yes. The teeth were difficult to to get used to in the beginning initially. I put them in my mouth year prior to shooting and immediately felt insecure. I felt like I was on my back foot in a way didn't feel like myself, which did help me quite a bit. But. It was a feeling of insecurity that I had to cover them up as well. And I'd been watching so much footage of him. You see him covering up his teeth so often that I thought how my ever gonna do that. Well, as soon as those teeth went in it was second nature about myself covering them up so often, my my lips would dry up. So I found myself licking my lips as he did. But another thing happened. I started to compensate physically by holding my posture better along aiding my body sitting up, very straight. And that's something. You also see him do. And I don't know if that was something that affected him or he was born with the elegance that he has. But it did give me away in understanding a little bit more about him. His name is originally for Rupel Ceara, and he wasn't even called that as a kid very strong set of of. Buck teeth and most of the kids in school called him Bucky. So you see this young man who travels from Zanzibar and goes to a boarding school called Saint Peter's in India. He's travels there on on a ship. He feels very I think removed and isolated. And when he comes back to Hans Avar his country's in the midst of a revolution. They have to immigrate to London, and he's a young man at that point feels like a fish out of water in the nineteen seventies trying to identify himself sexually as well. Let me so much stands in the way of this man becoming who he is. And what I discovered was. There is something burning inside of him this dream that he wants to see realized this music that is so vibrant, and your Ning to exist outside of him and everything stands in his way. But when he gets out on a stage, he holds everyone's attention and says, hey, I may have been an outcast and misfit, and I may feel like I don't belong. But here on this stage, we belong together. My guest is Rami Malik who stars in the new movie bohemian rhapsody as Freddie Mercury after we take a short break. We'll talk more about playing, Freddie Mercury.

Mercury in the new Queen bio pic bohemian rhapsody Malik also stars in the TV series mister robot. Freddie, Mercury was born in Zanzibar and grew up there. And in India before his family immigrated to England Rami Malik is American the son of shin immigrants when we left off. Off. He was talking about trying to understand and convey who Freddie Mercury was aren't to demystify him somehow and the way to do that was looking at his background. I thought to myself here's a young man immigrated to a country defied all obstacles to do what he loved, and that was one thing that that I could understand not to compare myself to him in any way, shape or form. But I am a first generation American my family came from Egypt and saw a better life for their children in the US. And you know, obviously, like so many people they would've loved for us to be doctors and lawyers. My sister is a doctor. So she fulfilled that aspect, but it was very difficult to convince anyone that I wanted to do this. And that I could do this. Did you feel like you were going to be letting them down if you failed that that they came here in an off you were already born when they came here, but still? Probably knew they'd be having children more children and often with immigrants. The idea is it's for the children. So if you failed as an actor, would you have been letting letting them down did you did you feel guilty for even trying for an acting career? It's a good question. Yeah. I did feel guilty and the only way to compensate for that was just to to give it my all. There was one moment. I was in my apartment that we were living in four of us in a two bedroom apartment, and I was I would wake up early just I was sleeping in in the living room at that point. And I had a stack of Manila envelopes and every morning, I would get up and put my head shot and resume in the Manila envelopes. And remember my father one day standing next to my mom saying. We have very tenacious, son. And I don't think that he knows that I heard him. But I heard that and it gave me that extra boost I needed to just keep going, and I I would take those Manila envelopes at was delivering pizza would put them glue them or take them to every pizza box. I would send out I would keep them behind the register of the fast food restaurant. I I would be working at anyone even produce Oriel came in. They were getting a head shot and resume in there to go back. Did you did you deliver pizzas to like famous producers directors? I did get an audition out of it once and I did. I did. Yeah. I did was for commercial and of still kept in touch with that person. Gave me the audition. Did you get the commercial? I did not what was it for Eminem's. Wow. I will tell you this one day. I did get a call. I got a call from Mara Casey who was a casting director for the Gilmore girls. And she asked to speak with the Romney Malik agent. And I said speaking, and she said, well, can I talk to about ROY Malik coming in and for a role on the Gilmore girls? I said, yeah. And she's in who am I speaking with? I said this is he and she said, you don't you don't have an agent, do, you know, but we can work on that. And she started laughing and she said. Are you are you sag are you part of the Screen Actors Guild nice as of yet? No. But that's something else. We we can work on as well. And she kept laughing. She's like listen. You're you're cute calming. When you get a representation, and I said, I said, listen, we're we're doing all right? We're having a good time. I see that the scene has only three lines and how about giving a guy break, and if you're laughing now chances are a might have you laughing in the room, and she took a few seconds. And she said, you know, what could come on in? I couldn't believe it. I could not believe it. And I went in on that day and later on that night. I had a had a callback for that show. And in between that one of these Manila envelopes that I'd been stuffing sending to every agent in Los Angeles happened to call me in between. The audition and the callback. And the confluence of the things that happen on that day. Still defy me to have any explanation for them. But it was very profoundly successful day. See you got the Gilmore girls part. Right. It got the part and the next day. Let's you just joining us. My guess is Rami Malik. And he stars, Freddie. Mercury in the new Queen movie, but he me and rhapsody. He also stars mister robot talk about mister robot in a minute. We'll be right back. This is fresh air.

Get it on NPR one or wherever you get your podcasts. My guest is Rami Malik and he stars in the new Queen movie as Freddie Mercury and he also stars in the TV series mister robot. Let's talk a little bit about mister robot. Now in this. You're you're you're somebody who has serious mental health issues serious social problems. It's very hard for you to be with people. You're very withdrawn you literally withdraw into your hoodie most of the time and you're a hacker by night. But you're like a tech worker during the day in the opening episode of season one you walk into a coffee shop Ron's coffee shop, and you sit down with the owner and you start talking to the owner of the shop. Let's listen to that scene. Iran. But. Your name's hit. Meta you changed. It Ron when you bite your first Ron's coffee shop six years ago. Now, you've got seventeen of them the day more coming next quarter. I like coming here because your wife, I was fast. I mean, you one of the few spots that has a fiber connection with gigabit speed. It's good. Good. It scratched that part of my mind part that. Doesn't allow good to exist without condition? So I started intercepting all the traffic on your network. That's what I noticed something strange. When I decided to hack you. I know you run a website called Plato's, boys. Pardon me. Pardon me, you're using tore networking to keep the servers. Anonymous, you made it really hard for anyone to see it. But I saw it the onion routing protocol. It's not as an honest as you think it is whoever's in control, the exit nodes is also in control of traffic, which makes me. The one in control. I must ask you to leave everything or Email while your files. Fix. Get out of here right now on the lease. You want them to find out about the hundred terabytes of child pornography shifty or four hundred thousand users. Personally, man, I was hoping it was just going to be some Bedia sound stuff. You realize how much simpler that would have been. Did. Personal life. I understand what it's like to be different. Very different to. That might done like an expression of sympathy. But right, right after that Rami Malik character is offered money by the coffee shop owner to cover this up and Elliott Rami Malik character. The hacker says that he doesn't care about money. And it turns out he's tipped off the police and has he gets up to leave the coffee shop the police get out of their cars, and they start walking in to bust the coffee shop owner, it's a it's a great scene in kind of hooks you right at the right in episode one. How did you get the part of mister robot? You weren't very well known at the time. I mean, mister robot is really what made you well known. Correct. That that I got the part actually auditioning with that very seen Sam 's male who is the creator of mister robot had seen me do a mini series. That was from Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks called the Pacific, and at some point I came in with another hundred actors or so and it did my best and kept coming in and coming in until finally did a network test. And I got the role, and I never thought that I would be the lead character in any show. This prove me wrong. How did you prepare yourself to play someone who's brilliant hacker? But also has serious mental health problems and a very very deep, sadness and loneliness. I'm even wondering if you talk to therapists, not about your own mental health issues, but about his. I did I ended up reaching out to a psychologist name Jenny Maury. And I asked her if there was any way we could have sessions where we would talk about Elliott Alderson. And let's talk about schizophrenia. Let's talk about dissociate of disorder. Let's talk about social anxiety. And you know, I never quite knew exactly what Elliott was dealing with to start off. So I wanted to cover all the bases. I read books on schizophrenia read, I read books on everything. I watched anything I could get my hands on of someone who was dealing with any of these issues and. I just I tried to absorb as much as I could. And she was incredibly helpful to the point where salmon I would have conversations and I had so much insight into it. He he would ask me. How are you? So informed on this. And I told him I've been talking to a psychologist who deals with this all the time. And after a while he said could I have her phone number? I said sure and eventually she was brought on as a consultant for the show. Oh, that's great. That's great. What what is it been like to stay in Elliott's mind for several years in in his like, you know, depressed anxious social, anxiety kind of mind. In the first season was so full on that it was it was taxing. I'm not gonna lie. There were many many hours spent in that mind frame, and it's very isolated lonely place to be he's he's incredibly complicated character. He's grief stricken he's profoundly alienated. He has an incredibly difficult time talking to people even being physically close to people having any sort of I think, quote, unquote, normal relationship and spent so much time viewing the world from behind a monitor and keyboard, but at the same time, he's able to to have some sort of resilience, and perseverance to go out and say. I want to change the status quo. I want to change the world we live in. And in fact, I wanna go win step further. I wanna save the world and those things. In of themselves. When you when you bridge them together make for such a complex life that it. It's difficult every night to to walk away from that and jump back in into my own shoes. He hides under his hoodie whenever he's in public. I'm wondering if you've got an interesting responses either from hackers because he's a hacker from people with mental health issues or from hoodie manufacturers. Before we did the pilot. I just walked around the streets of New York with my head down in the hoodie on. And I said I said to our costume designer early on. I want an off it that if you are surveilling him from a above or anywhere. He can put his head down and blend into the concrete. And that was the way I approached preparing for him at some points. I would go into elevators and remembered trying to identify where the cameras were and for days I wanted to see if I could go undetected and not have any human contact with anyone and that takes quite a toll on you. But it does make you aware of how how much we are being watched in the world. If you're just joining us. My guest is Rami Malik and he stars in the new Queen movie as Freddie Mercury and he also stars in this series mister robot. We're gonna take a short break, then we'll be right back.

So your parents are Coptic Christians who emigrated from Egypt. Most Americans don't know anything about Coptic Christians where other children of immigrants in your neighborhood. Did you live in Coptic community in LA? I went to Coptic churches as a child, and that's about of three to four hour service, which. Was in a in a language. I didn't understand I speak and understand Arabic. But there's a Coptic language that was very foreign to me. I remember the smell of incense being overpowering. I remember sitting with the men on one side and seeing the women sit on the other side and understanding that this was a world that was very foreign to the second. I exited and was in living in the San Fernando Valley surrounded by such a diverse culture, we grew up surrounded by a Latin community of Filipino community, African Americans everything Asians, there was everything around me. And so I felt diversity. But then there was also this feeling of a world that I was estranged from in this Coptic commune. Unity that my parents were very involved in also went to to Catholic school at one point. So I couldn't quite wrap my head around everything that was happening. So quickly to me in terms of the world. I lived in and the faith. I was I won't say imposed upon me. But something that weren't into born into. Yes, did you have a hard time explaining to your fellow students in Catholic school that you weren't Catholic? That's a very good question. Yes. I did. Yeah. I didn't didn't know how to explain that. When it came time to do confession. I wasn't going to be participating in that. I had a lot of explaining to do. I felt as a kid I was born here. But my my brother, and I really didn't speak English to about four or five. So it was it was quite difficult to assimilate. I mean, my name seems very easy to pronounce this Dana age not for everybody. But at that time for the first, you know, ten years of my life, no one pronounce my name is Rami. So it was very difficult. I think forming a sense of identity, and perhaps that's why I gravitated to creating so many of my own in my own private moments of creating characters as a kid did people think your name was Ramey. They thought it rhymed with Sammy Sammy and Rammie because your brother correct only took me till high school where I've found the confidence to tell everybody know. My name is Rami you are known as Rammie for for years. Yeah. It's very upsetting thing to think about that. I didn't have the confidence to correct anyone at that point. Did your parents speak English when you were growing up mostly Arabic, but yes, quite a bit of English. My. Dad was very extremely well, read and. Yeah. My mom and dad spoke English, and we split time at home speaking between air, bacon English. Do you know why they moved to the US? You know, I think. Look they lived in in in Egypt was a majority Muslim country. I think it's under ten percent that is Christian their Coptic Christian. And I don't know that that was the exact reason, but you know, my dad saw an opportunity and his work introduce him to to the west, you know, he was a travel agent and had a very specific vantage point into the west and western affluents in lifestyle and we loved American films as a kid. So I think there were there was a various curious aspect of him who who wanted to see part of that realized for himself. You know, you mentioned that Coptic Christians are very much in a minority in Egypt, which is a predominantly Muslim country. Just this month six Coptic Christian pilgrims were killed in an attack. Jack, and Egypt that ISIS claimed responsibility for I don't know if you still have family in Egypt, but have their lives been changed in recent years, both from like ISIS, but also how the pro democracy movement after the Arab spring kind of failed. And now president CC runs the country. I have so much family there, and it it's quite sad. I keep up with everything that's happening with them. And and you know, these shootings these bombings these attacks it, it's difficult for a family that has. As as a history of going to church on Sunday, and seeking refuge and shelter. And. Praying for their families and for their future, and seeking that type of solace in a place that at any moment might be bombed or someone might come in. And. Come in. And and. To be quite brutally honest gun. Everyone down is is something that is a reality that they live with and quite a incredibly sad thing to think that they have to endure on the Sunday's that they used to cherish so very much and the shocking thing too is that some Americans have lived through that or been killed by such acts in the very recent past. Yeah, I mean it destroys me when any any act of violence is taken. And this one is something that is very close to me. I'm I'm very I alerted in a in a with a relationship that is so immediate that it makes my heart starts to pound right now thinking about it one of the predicament. Is that a lot of actors who are of Arab descent or from predominantly Muslim countries. One of their predicaments is in this was maybe especially true, if you years ago that the role that they were likely to be cast in was terrorists terrorists number one terrorist free in you, you had your shot as a terrorist on twenty four were you conflicted about taking the part?

Rami Malek goes full Freddie in 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

"From the Mon broadcast center at K P, C C. This is the frame, I'm John horn on today's show. Netflix will now Lee some of its movies in theaters before they appear on the streaming site. What's behind the new strategy? Then Rami Malik the star of the new movie bohemian rhapsody explains how he found a connection with the supremely unique, Freddie, Mercury with a set of giant false teeth. The teeth were something that was a first moment when I thought, oh, I never thought I looked like him. But this is going to help it was something that Freddie was very insecure about and I I wore them from day one. It felt insecure, but I felt a little bit closer to him. All that coming up today on the frame. KPCC podcasts are supported by the net. Flix film the other side of the wind witness the last film from legendary director Orson Welles a cinematic event forty years in the making the other side of the wind streaming now only on net flicks. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us. There's one movie this fall that I'm really eager for film fans to see. It's fons. Oh, Korans Roma. When I saw it on the big screen at the telluride film festival. I did think that it would be a shame that most people would end up streaming on Netflix. Rather than seeing it in theaters. Yes, this Oscar winning directors personal movie about a year in his childhood is a Netflix release. It's also a cinematic feet shot in black and white without a score. But instead with an intricate sound design it unfolds like a dream memory. Well, this week Netflix announced plans to buckets past practices and we'll release Roma exclusively in theaters. Before putting it out on the streaming platform. Granted it'll only be in limited theaters. And a couple of big cities for a few weeks to discuss the move. I Skype today with Kyle Buchanan and awards expert at the New York Times, they're trying to have their cake and eat it too with this the address window and Affonso Koran is demanding, you know, big screens and big sound systems. A Netflix is essentially sort of paying for those. I don't know how it will do financially. I don't even know if Netflix will tell us how it will do financially do not usually in the in the spirit of giving figures out like that. But you know, I mean, it's ironic to me that Roma which is a very patient drama. In fact, one that opens with I think about a two minute unbroken shot of cobblestones being washed is debuting on a service that has a skip intro feature. I don't think it's even two minutes. I think it's closer to three or four. And it's beautiful. Yeah. And the cinematography and the sound design of this film are extrordinary. So what do you think Netflix is really doing because it's not just Roma as a couple other movies? They're going to give limited theatrical releases to it probably is not going to have much upside financially because it costs a ton of money to release a film theatrically. If you're only doing it in a handful of cities for a limited amount of time. You're not gonna get much payback financially. I mean, I don't think Netflix has ever been in a penny pinching their spending to try to take over everything they have essentially transformed television irrevocably. They want to do the same for movies. You know, I think even prior to net flix, we were wondering how much longer the traditional theatrical window would last they were a lot of incursions into that from, you know, shrinking home video releases red box there were studios and Hollywood figures who tried to get Dan date, debuts on sort of direct to video platform. But netflix. Represents probably the the strong guest threat and many academy. Members is to that that hierarchy the idea that a movie has to come out in theaters to be considered movie to be considered an Oscar contender up until now Netflix has argued that that's not the case that the movie can come out on a streaming service with just the most obligatory rule following booking in a couple of theaters to warrant Oscar consideration. Now, though, they're hedging they're hedging on their bets somewhat. I think with the notion in mind that if they can at least get a best picture nominee that it will have been worth it because that will only draw more people to Netflix, and by people, I mean, filmmakers and actors, and I think it's important to note that these are really token theatrical releases they're only a couple of weeks only in a couple of markets. So it's not a meaningful theatrical release, why would net do something in such a limited manner. Or are they really? Able to do anything more broadly because the big chains won't book their films. Well, it's both. Yeah. They can't do it. More broadly, those those the ethical distributors. There's only a few types of theaters that will play ball with Netflix knowing that their window will be undercut by debut on the streaming service. So that limits them somewhat that spend limits them somewhat, but they consider it an investment that they're willing to make because if it gets them a best picture nominee. That's something. You can't take back. If it gets them a best picture winner. I mean, all bets are off. It's obvious. That theater owners are fearful about changes in the streaming world. Do you think there's a broader concern among studio executives among producers that their old way of doing business is changing, and Netflix is this much of a threat as it as an ally. Yeah, I think there's a concern. But are they making the right moves to combat that? I'm not sure, you know, I I would like in it sort of to how the traditional broadcast networks, your NBC's your. ABC's your CBS's have kind of flailed at the advance of of services like Netflix or even premium and basic cable networks like FX or HBO. You would think that those major networks will be trying to create like attention getting things that kind of cut through the chaff like their own American horror story their own game of thrones. And by and large they're not they're programming boring procedures that are not really connecting with a young demographic or earning the sort of headlines as these other high profile shows, and sometimes I wonder if traditional movie studios aren't following the same path, they're just doing the big things that traditionally work. You know studio tent poles the big comic book movies, but they're neglecting. That's what of broad slate that people used to count on them for and if you resigning yourself to only making one thing, then it gets easier to dismiss you. I think I think there's one thing that we can agree on. And that is generally people should watch movies and movie theaters. Can't always be the case. But of all the movies that are contending for Academy Awards right now. I can't think of a movie that deserves to be seen in a big theater more than Roma. What about you? Well, I mean, you know, I know you're aroma had John. But I think I think good example of what that can bring is something that we have in theaters right now, which is a star is born watching that movie and getting the same goosebumps and hearing people gasp or plot afterwards or seeing their faces just turning around and seeing how people react to a number like shallow being performed. That's one of those things where the crowd experience and seeing these figures who were supposed to have the grandeur of icons on this gigantic screen. It just all works. So indelibly. I'm so happy that I saw that on the big screen. Kyle Buchanan is the carpet Bagger columnist for the New York Times. Kyle thanks as always, of course. Up next on the frame, how Rami mollusks highschool debate teacher helped spark his interest in acting. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us. If you're an actor who's playing a real live person. There's always the added pressure of getting it, right? When you're playing, Freddie, Mercury the world famous rock and roll icon with an other worldly vocal range. And then amazingly flamboyant stage presence that pressure is much much higher. But actually Rami Malik was so ready to take on the challenge of playing the Queen frontman that he dove into preparation even before the role was his that's also because his performance had to win over the surviving members of the British rock band who had final say on casting. When I spoke with Molly about his new film bohemian rhapsody. We started way back with how his participation in the debate team at Notre Dame high school in Sherman oaks led him to acting. My parents were pretty intent on me being a politician or lawyer of some sort. Possibly a doctor. But they thought to bait would be a good way to go. And so did I well I had a teacher who realize it wasn't very good at that aspect. But there was something called a dramatic interpretation. And as a teacher handed me one man show called zoom in and the sign, and I read it and within a few hours. It was reciting opened. My name is Manzi double-o m man, I'm from the bottom. And I heard this voice come out of myself that I'd never heard before. I didn't know what was happening, but it felt special. Learn the whole thing as quickly as possible, and then went back to school a few days later, and I delivered it to my teacher Lester berry, and he's like all right? I think I'm going to enter you in a competition and. Is the first time I invited my mom and dad to anything and they sat a few rows in. I went to to begin delivering this this one man show, and I saw felt myself transform and I saw them transform. And it was a moment of while something specialists happening between us that I've not known. It was been foreign to me before and liked it. And from then on it was where's where's drama class? I want to ask you more about that idea of transformation that in that high school performance you recognize that you'd become something other than yourself. Right. Yes. And any actor who is self aware knows that that's like a secret to performance. Does it always happen at some point that you figure that you figured out the character that the character is taken over you in some way. It's a great question. I think there have been moments when I've been fortunate enough to. To show up on set and not have to feel like I've done all the homework the day before so to speak that something has already arrived, and I found something that has has lent itself to. Portrayal or characterization that is just going to carry a itself without me almost I'm just chasing it in a certain way. And when that happened those are the best days, you just feel like you've found something. And it's it's living in breathing. And it's it's just it's driving itself at some point some actors find that a piece of were drove can be really important and transforming them sometimes it's makeup, sometimes it's hair. But I want to ask you about somebody you worked with on bohemian rhapsody, and that is your movement coach Polly Bennett and about what she did with you. And how that might have helped you find Freddie, Mercury through physical movement. Right. Well, all throughout I realized actually in the very beginning that I wasn't going to be choreographed. I would just be chasing, Freddie. I would be would be an imitation and impersonation. Some type of mimicry. That's not what I wanted to do it all it was very important for me to be a spontaneous as he was not only on stage. But in every scene to go in there, and and feel like my fellow actors were not quite going to know what I was going to do that the audience and the concert scenes had no idea what was coming next that. I had the ability to interact with the audience in between takes as Freddie would that. Of course was was. A collective effort began with Jan Soule who is a master makeup artist. She did your teeth and your nose and other things she did she did sh- you've forgiven her. I you know, I needed the teeth. The teeth were something that was a first moment when I thought, oh, I never thought I looked like him. But this is going to help. This is going to help immensely. It was something that Freddie was very insecure about and I wore them from day one. I felt insecure, but I felt a little bit closer to him. She got me as close as she could. And then I would take the hair and makeup and go into costume fittings with Julian day, and we would not only just wear the most audacious or ostentatious things. We would think wh what Freddie would think would be the best way to make a spectacle. What would flow on stage? What would have great reflection? What would enhance the the concert performance? But collectively? More to your point. Paulie Bennett was the person that allowed me to discover how he sat what how he moved how he walked into a room how he articulated himself. Well, he was being a little bit more aggressive when he was shy. How you would hold a cigarette. And then from then on we would we would just slowly. But surely studied. People who inspired him LIZA Minelli. Jim Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie. But a lot of his movements come from Bob Fosse. So we spent a lot of time watching that. We would also take the lyrics of killer Queen and she would say all right. You know, these lyrics and say she keeps show. Just. Give me the soliloquy of killer Queen as performed by Marie Antoinette. And all of the sudden. Yeah. I mean, you know, those lines, and I I'm not gonna perform this now because it would be embarrassing now as it was in the dance studio with paulie alone. But I did it over and over and like this Shakespearean performance, and I saw my my body doing things that defied me as a human being and all the sudden, you see something that very transformative and elegant and very regal which he was and other moments. She'd be like just give me a cross country ski across the room and say, what are you doing? But then you see that in the eighties. He's got different kind of move. And we should point out radio Gaga. These these fists being thrown out into the air. And you know question where do you think that's from? And it would take me a minute. And they'd realize oh, yeah. He did boxing when he was a kid who's at champion boxer. Even Brian May says he's to give me bruises. He would you know, just give me a lot. Jab every once in a while from joker from a moment of him just being elated like, you know, that childlike mischief that he had when you were starting looking at mercury's life in the film reflects this in the first I think fifteen minutes of the movie both when Freddie is working as a baggage handler. And when he's performing for the first time, he is called a name that in the United States would be the quivalent of the N word the way that people especially in United Kingdom address people who are from Pakistan. How did Freddie see himself as an outsider as the child of immigrants as somebody who maybe didn't feel comfortable in the way that he looked obviously he's somebody who struggled with coming out as a gay, man. How much of his worldview was shaped by other people seeing him as different and has outside. I think in the mental outwith shaved in that way. He was born in Zanzibar was put on a ship at a. Tender young age to go to school boarding school in in India and had it not been a British boarding school named Saint Peter's he might have found himself in London at the age of eighteen where he arrived with a very unusual accent a man named for Rupel Sahra who might have had an even tougher time becoming the Freddie Mercury that we know today. I mean, fortunately, he showed up, and he he had had a very kind of RPG Royal pronunciation of the English language, and it was perhaps a bit affected to overcome certain obstacles of fitting in. He says it was an upheaval of upbringing for him. He definitely did not fit in his name was difficult to pronounce for so many. And he didn't look like anybody else. Tell me I I mean, I'll tell you. He does not look like anybody, especially if you look at those early. Pictures. Now, here's a guy trying to fit in trying to understand who he is in this new world. And all of a sudden he has to also deal with the sexual identity, and the discovery of that at a time when being anything other than heterosexual is heavily stigmatized. Not only by the end of the world at large has Zoro Astrium, family belief is some something that they frowned upon immensely so difficult to open up about any of these things and the way I see it is there is someone who wants to share. What is burning inside of him, not only the conflict, but the emotion the sound the movement and at times violent it is volatile. And when he gets out there on a stage. He let it rip. I mean, he explodes like a fireball that is mister Fahrenheit. Coming up more of my conversation with Romney, Molly about plane, Freddie. Mercury in Bohemia in rhapsody. KPCC podcasts are supported by the Netflix film, the other side of the wind witness the last film from legendary director Orson Welles the other side of the wind the story of a director named Jay Jay, Jake Hannaford who returns to Hollywood from years of semi exile in Europe with plans to complete work on his own innovative comeback movie. Also, entitled the other side of the wind a cinematic event forty years in the making the other side of the wind now streaming only on Netflix. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn, the new movie bohemian rhapsody about Freddie, mercury's life and his band. Queens rise to fame is framed around the band's legendary nineteen eighty-five performance at Live Aid. It's considered one of the best rock performances of all time. And it was the first seen that director Bryan singer shot for the bio pic, but it wasn't singer who finished the film while he's still the credited director singer was fired for failing to show up on set with a couple of weeks left in production. Dexter Fletcher was hired to finish the film. The switch presented a challenge for Romney. Molly who plays Freddie, Mercury in the film. But Molly said the biggest concern for him was setting aside. Other people's expectations of what they thought a portrayal of, Freddie. Mercury. Should look like that was one of the biggest obstacles, I would say singing, and that where the two biggest obstacles for me is, you know, everyone has a very particular relationship to him and they identify with Freddie, Mercury in their own personal way. So for me, I knew I was never gonna appease everyone. And what I realized is. You know, here's here's a human being who appears to be super human at times. He struts on stage in a crown and Cape. He's the closest thing we get to one of these marvel characters. I mean, he's got the voice of someone who is not human. And he moves like snow you've ever seen before. And he transports you what I tried to dimiss defy about all of this is a human being and link my humanity to his in a way and in doing. So I said Romney, this is not someone that knew need to fully attempt to embody you. You wanna understand him? You wanna get as close as you can. But don't lose yourself entirely. And I think is actors were always trying to get so far away from who we are. But I needed to hold onto so many things that I understood about him that tethered us to together that was going to be an amalgamation of myself and him for nortre for every frame to feel as visceral and realistic could. As an actor. How much do you relate to the idea that Freddie, Mercury wanted to make sure that people who didn't have a lot of money who may not have looked like everybody else felt they were included that he was not judgmental in who. He wanted to have admire him, and he wanted to make sure that people could see themselves in his performance, even if they look nothing like him. I mean that was one of the aspects I truly did want to shine a light on and made sure was encapsulated in this film. I think one thing that was beautiful about, Freddie, and something that was really revolutionary is is just what you said, he, you know, he spoke to the outcasts. He's he never see him in performance really looking at the first few rows. He's always looking to the back that something Polly pointed out to me, she goes look at where's is going to the end. He's trying to make sure everybody feels present here. Everybody's sharing. He was a guy who. Refused to be marginalized into every any particular category or segregated into any one thing. He didn't want to be labeled, and he didn't want anybody else to be labeled. He was defiantly appreciative of everyone being their most authentic selves and as an actor. I look for projects that allow me to share that message. I think I do show called mister robot. Where I think, you know, there's a young man who feels profoundly alienated by the world. And he's still attempting to save it in some way and have his voice heard. And I mean between the two of these guys, I think they're sending a very clear and present message of inclusivity and acceptance, Freddie, Mercury as a musician and certainly Queen as band met with a lot of adversity, and they were incredibly optimistic about their ability to overcome adversity as you're performing that character. And thank you about. Out the way that they saw the world and the way they saw obstacles. How does that prepare US and actor for adversity and production? When you lose your director it prepares you very well to be quite honest. I think getting myself to a place where I was ready to start with Live Aid and feel comfortable doing that. For me felt like a feet. It was a moment. I was very proud which was the first week of shoot. Yes. Yeah. Exactly on day one. We started with an iphone. I had I had overcome a lot of obstacles by that point. I had to get the approval of the band. They had the final say in who was cast. I had been putting in the hours with paulie. And and whatnot. Flu myself out initially without this film, being fully green lit to go work on singing and piano and movement. So I felt when I got there I had a bit of a leg up. Now. There was always going to be catch up to play because it's Freddie, and he is supernatural, but. When we shot Live Aid. I knew it inside out like the back of my hand. I sat down at that, piano. And it was feeling like no other of seen something you've watched over and over and over again, and here you are living it, but I knew that camera had to go next at times. And I knew what shots we really need to pay closer attention to. So whether it was with one director or another later on, you know, working with Tom Segal or DP was a relationship that I found very dependent on. And I think we were able to really help each other setup shots. It's another thing that I learned very well working with Sam 's on mister robot with RDP Todd Campbell it such an integral part of storytelling. I was at a place where I felt very confident. And like I could take command of what I needed to do. And what we collectively needed to do. It was a, you know, a feeling I. I hope to continue to bring to projects as proceed throughout my career Robbie Mollica greatest. Great to be with you. Thank you bohemian rhapsody is in theaters now, and that is it for this week. The frame is produced by Oscar Garza, Darby Maloney, Monica bushmen, and Jonathan shift let our intern as Marie Alexa, Cavanaugh in our engineer this week what Sean Campbell. I'm John horn.

Feeder while. And then suddenly the enterprise D's bridge. Wow. That's an sound great at all. It's almost like the only heard the left or right channel. I know also weird. I mean for people out there listening, the price of fine dub step intro for you. But for us, we have some technical difficulties. So we can't really hear our music we soon played well anyway, flaming happened. Something happened. Welcome to the podcast this week. I'm norm. And I'm joined by two co-hosts from alternate universe.

Plus, the anti are the only report left on my computer, really is that analog out everything else has on. Speak BC, right HDMI. Nobody's blocking that analog Holman. No, no, someone's working on DSP do that. It would be nice guy. Yeah. And we have another special guests. This is your second time. I think on this podcast first time, maybe third is your your on October cast, which was twenty four hour podcast. We did so many years ago not doing right now. Don't worry. There's not a twenty four hour podcast that was horrible as poor people. Stuck with me for twenty four hour. You you took the brunt of the midnight shift the two AM chef but Robbie Baldwin Robbie. How you doing? I'm doing well how you doing doing? Okay. Robbie for people who don't know we used to work with you back in the magazine days you've worked at you worked at MAC life magazine. You were you ran the website there. You also have worked at wired wired the website. And now you currently you worked. Gizmodo moto. That's right afterward. And now you work at all over you've been you've you've touched every Haya Kanye liba job as what the well. The places you've worked only reputable places, but you've been engage it for quite a while. Now, I got one of those Lincoln. It's your work aniversary. And I'm like, oh, what is like to four years. I've been there four years four years. That's as long as I was at at a MAC life. So now longer than that for years for years it and gadget turn me up. Is that you know that was Robbie. Okay. I I don't know. I'm day sound engineering as well. It's yeah. You got this get you a little mini board episode four hundred ninety seven folks three episodes left until five hundred I wanted to get Robbie and one because you're only available. Wow. I'm on vacation right now. And hey, can you? You wanna do the podcast tomorrow? I got nothing else going on it could not have been more timely because you're beat at an gadget is cars is electric vehicles. Something that we talk about without any real knowledge about on the podcast all the time. And some really glad that we have someone in this week who will actually help set the record straight and explain what's what's really going on with cars. We tested to electric cars. We did. Thank you, sir. Four. I guess so guys have. Yes. In total. We've definitely covered lecture cars on tested. Will you did the BMW? I three the Hanna car. Yeah. Also, I did that smart car. That's the thing. Yeah. We got up to ninety miles an hour on the freeway hill know up on the two eighty on the flat on six six serif. It was vibrating in town. If you live in a city, and you're going to stay in the city. Yeah. That's totally fine anywhere. It was not meant to go on. We took it to the steepest to the steepest slope in San Francisco. You can't say, oh what went on? It's racist. God steepest hill. Incline. Steepest is racist. I thought it was racist a bad apple. So we it was brilliant. We took it to we Google. And unfortunately turns out when you search like the Cps incline INSERM Sivas hill. It's like half a block of hill. It's sixteen feet. Yeah. Oh in this one St. on this twenty foot stretch, it's pretty steep. We're imagining all multiple block hill at the thirty degree incline. And it wasn't that. But it was still fun and the car barely made it up the hill. But yes, we have covered electric cars on tested. I have lecture car. We've test driven you know, cars tesla. But you've done a lot more of that. You reviewed the model three for N gadget review three, and you probably know about all manner of companies working on electric cars. Then fact, I do we're gonna get to that. And we have a dedicated section on this podcast dedicated technology, and that's where we. Talking about some extra cars. Yeah. What do you drive? What's your personal car? I own a Subaru Biard Z is that electric. No is turtle combustion engine rear wheel drive. It's nice. It's an ice car. It is dead dinosaurs every day, everyday dead dinosaur, like some old ferns just anything that you can make into a goo- pump out of the earth and may gasoline out of it. But here's the thing. I never drive that car because it's my wife's car. Really? Okay. Wife drives a car about ninety five percent time. She has to commute to work. Okay. And she wanted something that was quick that was fun to drive and had a manual transmission and hit all the Mark when you guys drive that together. And you're sitting the passer sees driving juju like the rally car thing and co-driver like we've got a little map out slight left three hundred meters. Daters ten about nine minutes unless until she punches me. Okay. Let's stop. It's good that you there's a lot of stop quit it what are you doing? I remember. I I have I have a dinosaur story. Let's hear the fascinating that it's kind of a moment of science, but not here. So he he's going to dismiss it. That's all right. Do you know why we have Cole? No because soup mandate hasn't smashed all the diamonds no for millions and millions of years. There were no micro organisms that could break down would. So for a long long time when the tree would die and fall over it would just stay there and not rot for an incredibly longtime than they eventually got pushed much to no 'Bacterial, nothing fungus. No 'Bacterial the wood the trees, just attornal. And so they compact, and then they got compacted, and they became coal and fossil fuel sue carbon carbon in it's not form. But in its intermediate compact form. Yeah. Basically, I mean, yeah, hydrocarbons are. Yeah. There's more to it than that. But yeah, I thought that was never even occurred to me when you think about geologic time scale think about a forest that's just dead trees piled on top of more. By of more millions of years for millions of years. So there could be a planet out there. That's nothing coal nothing, but dead trees, and then once humans go there and leave Iraq terrier all the Coles this came up because presumably this is what's going to happen to the plastic that we're crapping up the earth where the right now is right now, there's no micro organisms that can digest it. But at some point something, we'll have a mutation x-men style and become able to eat the plastic. And then that thing's going to rule the planet genuinely fascinating thought. It was good in America before while all that plastic it smush down to the earth. Exactly. Maybe it'll turn into some sort of energy for whatever creature comes after I believe it will be the raccoon, by the way. I think the record the time of the raccoon is upon us. So I'm sorry. Yeah. For for human. Well, not really we've just coming trash be free right there. Yeah. Yeah. Favorites friends Robbie very good. Wow. Science antidotes starting podcasts off. All right. I don't know. If that's true. I read it on Twitter could be completely made up. Okay. Cheese. Damn. Thanks qualifying grandkids. Disclaimer, no actual science was discussed during the science moment. The person the person who tweeted it had a picture that looked like a scientist. So do they have a light jacket? No, no, no, no way. Right. You know, the hip or now at least wearing plaid shirts, you know, that plaid that blue check gingham shirt. That's what most of them wear signs their geologists that we could check this. With fact, check this. Let's see we all fact checking podcasts, I'm saying before you told the story the comments are just gonna tell us if we got it, right or not true. Yeah. Fact check for shore person knows so Robby you cover cars now in your previous of. Of. Places when you were wire when you're Moto what else were you covering over? You beats I've covered apple Microsoft, Amazon. Google I o t hard-drug it's everything I've covered technologies everything. And what's been the most exciting for you cars cars cars, especially in the last few years just because smartphones are just computers. We've all learned that is really great at service ads and nothing else. But the car the carpet is don't don't forget making, you know, fake porn. Oh, yeah. Making fake. Yeah. A given. Yeah. Of course, it seems like a lot of work because people can just you don't really need the fake porn. It seems there's enough of the real porn enough. You'll porn that you don't. I don't know. So the car beat is the the beat that you've been most excited about enjoying the most. Yeah. I mean, I've been a car guy car person. You know? I was that way before I was a nerd, I didn't get a computer tells twenty one. But I was driving at thirteen. I wrecked. My first car when I was fifteen so that's a nice. Hey nice. I was seventeen what's the best? Getting these questions out of the way now before gets news. What's been the best electric car or new car thing you've driven or ridden? The best electric car. I think for regular people the the Hyundai Kona EV is the best electric car. That's that's one you would recommend a once. You've enjoyed writing in the most driving the most driving the car that I've enjoyed driving. The most is the Lamborghini her con spider. Just really because it's a Lamborghini Anders that there's that little like when your kid Lamborghini is the car you want when you're twelve years old. They're Chari, right. Yeah. And you want it. They're they're insane. And it handed like there was no tomorrow, and I didn't fit and when I had to turn when a turn right? What do you mean? You didn't. I don't fit in a Lamborghini. You're Laura I'm Tom six three six three. And so my knee my legs are right up against the stream while so why I'm turning right? There's a center console in the stream will I have to move my right hand up and down. I can't just leave my hand. Because it hits my leg says a lot more movement. Did you you feel did you feel like the coolest you've ever felt your life when you're driving Lamborghini? No, no. I don't. I think there's the the yuno that people are looking at you and thinking what also what does it track? You did it like on the road yourself aware the problem? Yes. I'm like when I drive Mercedes and BMW's. Yeah. I am very mistrial. The let's let's call s strive when I'm driving those cars, I make sure that I am the nicest driver on the ro everyone goes in front of me. I might go ahead of me you person walking. Well, you know, you do that. Anyway, I'm extra self aware of what the, you know, the the folks that drive a German sports sedan see how they act, but I was driving the smart car. I felt like everybody was looking for the opposite reason while as my own. Wow. My own car. The did you find that the BMW made you drive more aggressively and like more evil person? Did you cut people off anything like that much? Not so much. I think I, you know, I'm, you know, I'm the car guy. But I'm also I understand, you know, be nice to bicyclists. You're you're a human. That's human. I car guy said, okay? You know, reporter third. I don't know go reporters or second second. Okay. But the the funnest electric car driven was it's a it's a between the P one hundred D model S because you can go. Just put people in the car. It's taking them to magic mountain. We or the Jaguar I pace. Because it handled we got to drive on track and Portugal, really technical track. And it did really well for car that size, and I got to go off road. And so it does kind of everything for this very pretty on someone questions. This is really cool. The thing that still the thing that struck me the first really every time I've driven electric car is that it feels completely different. Like, there's none of the engine lag that we're that we just is built into our brains with. With course, the sounds complete different. I was driving to work today. And as sometimes happens the center console on the model three did not turn on all black, which also I couldn't tell my turn signals working. I still drives I can still on the road. It would all but months ability and software phone, that's right. Your car. That's right. And so, you know, ten minutes into the drive still Henry boot it yet. And I'm like, I got no AC not everyone goes down. Even I believe I could roll my windows down. Yeah. But it was really quite knows who really early quiet music nothing. And then you can manually reset force. It's reset by holding the buttons down. Did that? He'll do the whole and the lock button at the same. Basically, that's exactly basically, there's two buttons on the steering told them for ten seconds. Then the fuel tank and pops up and then everything's again on three key, sir. Yeah. Okay. We'll get to more car stuff later. Let's hit to our first section and talk about the top story. Who don't have that music? We do we do. We don't saying game. Yeah. Their story this week so endgame, thanks. Shelf and ahead there obvi- scripted podcast. I'm sorry everyone. Well, this is a do over we are recording this actually on Thursday. So people should be listening to this this evening, and I'm going to do the one thing will that you've prescribed that. I have not listened to the eight years years of running tested. What are you going to turn off the comments for this podcast? Oh, thank Christ. And doing it. Just turn them off. All the time everywhere. It's just felt bad about just for this podcast on YouTube because forget it'll be a bad. But because endgame his out Gino and people have seen it now. Yeah. There was a press screening worldwide debut on I think on Tuesday, obviously people in overseas in Europe. And you Zealan have seen it more than a day ago. Twenty four hours ago, I was trying to days ago before that even I have not seen it yet. No, I'm tomorrow tomorrow morning. Wow. Did you see it before me? I'm seeing it. I actually I won't even let you when the one I'm seeing it soon. See rob have you seen yet you've interest? I have I don't even think I've watched the trade. You didn't watch. Like, I kind of I watch maybe one trailer. And then I'm like, you know, what you good. Let's see what happens the the kind of. Yeah. There was a trailer before captain marvel daughter last weekend. And that's the only trailer. I've seen oh I have to have to see captain marvel to you should probably marvel. Yeah. I think that's still theaters. And I think that it will not be impacted. So you could so. Theater yourself marvel that yeah, I last night on twitch people were putting spoilers all my in their user names coming into channels just posting something. So they'd get banned. It would pop up and following or whatever and the podcast we talked the ending leaked at some early screening overseas. Arming some germs in now. And he stabs Dana's. No, no goes up. That didn't happen. There's a hotdog eating contest at the end. Whoever wins. At some point and barrage. And he's our what you can't avoid, of course, people sharing their opinions of fall on Twitter. Right. If you log on Twitter, people, plenty of people I follow I seen it already. And they're trying to be as nice as they can. But even though spoiler free reviews. I think our committee much. Here's I have one spoiler free piece of information. I don't wanna hear it is it that they're superheroes in the movie. No, we all know that. Okay. Robbie. The preview screenings. Yeah. Cut some stuff out. Maybe really. Yeah. Like ending stuff may maybe post credit bits. How do I know this sexy sources interest? So some of the previous screenings there were little there was like a hitch in the credits where presumably they would normally jam in twelve post credit scenes. Yeah. Yeah. Set up the new phase four shore. So maybe that stuff didn't make the previous screen. This is not new marvel is done. This has depress screenings and previous screenings. Oftentimes. I mean for famously for the first vendors film for when I was in two thousand twelve with this scene was filmed after like, the really it was like they they had leaked it out because they got all the they filmed at during the press promo or the press conference right out to the all back together. And then someone accidentally leaked I think it was a rubber Downey junior. Or maybe Mark Ruffalo, he sounds rumble. Leaker. He's got one more scene. And if were what what and then in the worldwide debut, it was not there. But when we theaters because it's all digital they pushed out on that on that name blocked out bird. I Ronnie when now now he has a beard. Oh, that's right. Yeah. That's right. A beard. So that's that's that's that's he's he's actually he's he's now that's what his his new name is poised to make a ton of money as outpaced in terms of pre sales every movie before it, including Infinity war in including Star Wars force awakens, our I have.

I worked with a woman who had every book about Titanic before Titanic came out, and she was on to me about all over friends who were very excited Titanic because it was about channel or because of the Titanic, and then she would and then she would go into this little monologue about how James Cameron had done all this stuff for the Titanic, and how just on and on and my eyes glaze over. And I gotta go make a low height for Tannock was. So my mom is one of those people like she was she's a Titanic superfan. And when they found it it was like the shit stopped at our house. Wow. Right.

That took a perfectly good true story and targeted up. Well, I made made a billion dollars. On the door. That said a spoiler. Do you know why? Ruined. Do you know why she didn't let them on the door the Parramatta the plot? Demanded it he has to die yesterday Giacomo dawn imagined anyway Titanic to about the stars being wrong. Anyway, John was get married. So how how we talk about endgame? Will. We talk about it next week. I'm not willing. We don't think. So. I mean, maybe hush I know, Jeremy, and 'cause sure we'll seen it then. Yeah. Shorts talk about what we don't comments. I won't people won't let us know. All do. Turn the comments on next asleep on tested yesterday comments. You can't turn off probably a little poll. Do do Twitter poll I can do Twitter poll. Everybody loves a Twitter poll. Twitter. Don't go Twitter. You just make the poll in back-off. Look. Here's here's a big secret. I stopped going to Twitter 'cause I was worried about a vendor spoilers. Now. I'm much better off. Now does not on Twitter. It's really good the life spoilers everything when I stopped going to Facebook because Facebook anymore that worked out that? Missed anything. If I didn't have my job. I wouldn't go on any of those. I never know anybody's birthday as anymore. I don't wish anyone a birthday happy Facebook. Because I feel like I'm cheating. Yeah. You are. Yeah. Yeah. I'm not gonna wish I wish. Norm. How they let's hear that was from the heart. Mark Zuckerberg told me to also my birthdays wrong on Facebook because the sec. Yeah. Nice. Yeah. I'm just trying to join no Will's birthday. No. May that's right nineteenth. Nope. Fair. Same thing. No one's got the important dates, lower priorities priorities. Okay. Let's move on next up. Hold on. I'm ready for you. Are you need to really love a lot? Very I'm all the music got a guy. Yeah. It turns out is me. Well, you know what? In pop culture, it's endgame again and just talking about he did so theaters apparently adding screenings it's gone. It's gone too far. I think. Not only are theaters only marathons and some theaters are doing the full twenty one twenty three twenty twenty two marathons nine there's a more reasonable marathon where some people some theaters are doing Infinity war. I okay. So you can go Infinity or right into okay and game. And of course, movies on open on Fridays anymore movies. Barely open on Thursdays kinda do eight PM Thursday night midnight when Thursday Wednesday night, eight PM Pacific, eight pm eastern, whatever it is will something are not only doing eight PM, showings, date before and Monette, showings, but also to AM, showings, and also forty I'm showing adding extra showings in the middle of the night back in my date, more money back in my day. When a movie opened on Friday, you showed up at twelve o one on Thursday night Friday morning. That's that we talked transformers one to an also transformers three for reasons that I can't really explain bid night at the metro on on the Hugh. Screen by God. I was up until three o'clock in the morning all three of those times, watch those bad movies. Well, here's the thing. I don't like about midnight screenings. I think there's a time place for I think it's a writer passage. I certainly have my share of midnight screenings and some of those really great experiences with shared audience reactions. We'll if you've been waiting for film for longtime Lord of the rings. That was great attack of the clones. Yes. Days because of the theater chains works and because trailer system they're like fifteen to twenty minutes of trailers and pre roll and advertisements. And here is Delile. Coca Cola commercials. How do you feel about them guys? Don't don't pick up your phone while the on the secret mission again, and I'm ex. Bumpers and Toby vision bumpers, eyeball, still all the time. I don't need you to tell me that the colors are better and the black levels and more. Still on. Why can't they if they're going to they're going to do a midnight screener, very I quote, I showing can't they bump that up. So the movie starts at eight o'clock. The segment goes at the end of the show. Norm. Goes that knowing me. Yeah, I'm gonna put it here. It's walter. Why can't you just get all the trailers? They have to play play. It. Forget stuff done a head of time. So people who are already there to watch a movie at Mineta two AM. Don't stay up till five AM. They got an extra twenty minute. Let's those are the true believers man, you gotta get the guy to get hit them hard and fast. They've gotta know what's coming next. They gotta know there's as much phantom Kollek movie coming out, they have to know right Spiderman homecoming is just a few weeks away. Norm. And probably has some bullshit to hill. Three antea. Yeah. It doesn't work from. I mean, at least now if you since you can reserve seats, I've noticed that movie screens people show up they know ten minutes in when the walk into theater to their reserves. And also, it's nice because you don't have to line up at nine o'clock to get seats at midnight showing max thank you don't have to worry about those those single seats because people want to next to each other. Yeah, we'll do that. Anyway, because they Bookham thing. Single. Yeah sometime. Yeah. But then there's always some single person who wants the lonely lonely person. So no, we're not talking about transformers. But I saw Bumblebee the other day, and they finally made a good transpose. Good. I watched. Transform. Every time the end, I'm like, this is the worst thing I've ever seen anger. And then I watched Bumblebee and at the end on the plane. I'm like looking around like it was kind of nice redo transformers one no kid in in the robot. Very good movie. And with the big war the opening scene was pure fan service all the garbage from on all the all the robots that you collected as toys that you're never going on earth. They got them all done the CG fantastic. Had just enough transformers fighting. It wasn't overdone. You all the action because the direct good. Yeah. Travis. It didn't just look like someone grabbed a bunch of of motherboards and ram and glued together. And. Can. Yeah. Cocaine's? Just twisting them. Yeah. No. It was definitely you could definitely make the out the action a little more annuals motion. And and you care, and they took the time. They took the opportunity to do the things and did not do the cliche things. Yes. There's the CEO of the girl jumping off the cliff and she decides she's like this. I'm not going to jump me. Then they do the thing. But anyway, it was it was fine film. Yes. I hope they'll follow up with more transparent make money and make a ton of money. Really? Yeah. People. I it wasn't the Michael bay draw by think people just burned down. I only watch one of they were real bad though. You shouldn't have watched any of them. They were bad. Yeah. Okay. Other movie news. Bond twenty-five is in the works. They've announced the cast you have of course, Daniel Craig coming back real of. Yeah. He still bond. I thought he was on-track, man. Yes. You break a contract you catch a lot. It was going to be Danny Boyle's going to direct. It got to be so good, but he is not doing anymore. And so Carey nagua who did protective season one heeded beasts of no country, the film, and he sends some other films. He's directing it. I didn't know that. There is no name for the bond film. Do you think that they're going to go dark and gritty again, or do you think they're gonna Roger Moore and up into the new bond? I got two bits of news. I'll tell you why this one excited for John Rami Malik is going to be in it. It's a Romney Malik from the from the USA from from this robot, Mr. about. Yeah. And Huma rhapsody. Okay. The rumor is that he's playing the villain that seems right heel and face. He doesn't face. And then Jeffrey writes coming back jeffer-, right? As Felix from from Westworld? And now he's much more well known actor. What was he's not just before he well, he wasn't casino royale. He was in two of them. But he played the the American. Felix is a long-term care. So Jeff writes coming back, and I hope they give them more to do because a mazing actor. Yes. Superman, actor some other casting, Sean Lynch, and I know you haven't seen capture Malia show was the best friend. She was one of the best parts of captain marvel. And so she's in the bond film. Awesome. Ralph coming back. The only Harris Moneypenny is coming back. Very good. Save a lot of feels it'd be the proper me the proper nudity. It's probably the proper ending to bond film bond films outdated. The whole Cold War spy thing is done. There's like I'm glad they're putting into an end to give chance to kind of revamp it whenever they redo bond again in a couple of years. They're fun. They're fun films. It's funny like the arc on these this. This current generation of bond movies has been really interesting because like it started off with something that was completely new and really gritty aggressive and kind of painful to watch at times casino royale. L? And then then like spector was almost return. It wasn't gadgetry and campy like a like a Roger Moore one. But it has that it did the mission impossible. It did the thing that mission impossible has since done better. Yeah. So I don't know and didn't Christoph waltz play bad guys in both of those franchises. Now. Probably seems right. I mean, Austin powers ruined the idea of them doing anything campy. I don't know. I think I mean, I think there's other you can't because other just. Yeah. Maybe when you just go God, we're being we can't maybe there isn't a space between the one Austin powers movie. Because if you pretend the other ones don't happen. It's great. And now, maybe they can kind of Beyonce as first film role. I know eat that skin. I watched I'm like, oh, I'm sorry. Beyond say, why did we let this happen? She had her amazing that he's going to be okay. She had historic Coachella performance last year. My wife was watching it in the other room. I was trying to work, and I was like oh my God. I was just like. Just like watching it like, yeah. Rue the door. And I was like this. I have to watch it at times and the US was going to be gritty, well, one can decay that it probably won't take itself too seriously, which I think it's the best has to Mike Myers. No. The film apparently is also going to be written by Phoebe Waller bridge who wrote she will you might may know her best American audience minora best as the actor who played the robot in solo the leftovers love interest. That's right. Exactly. Okay. And she's a writer and actor. She wrote the BBC series fleabag and her writing is very dry TriCalm. Love try with that's a very English voice. Goodness. So I'm glad that that. She was apparently brought in by Daniel Craig who love her work and want to help make the script a little bit lighter. A little maybe a little more sub should watch fleabag. It's a great show. Yeah. Southbound twenty-five no name for the film yet. So we'll call about twenty five. Maybe they don't have any more books. Right. Pointing the there are no I thought a quantum. We haven't done all raker again. We can do that. I mean, I love I love moon rancor to who will be jaaz, David, Batista. Okay. He was a bond film. He's inspector. Look, they can put the funny hair on him. It'll work itself out. These jaws these somebody really tall. It's a basketball player. If there was any real film franchise that would read to a moon roof or sell stories can be fast and furious. Look have you seen the trailer for and Shaw. Yes, I have not seen really good. I'm sad. I'm sad because the families beefing right state, Dwayne the rock Johnson. They're having fusses. But I think that there's a potential in this trailer to over over break beyond the greatest seen in film in the twentieth century, so far which is when the rock. Stands up. He finds out. His people are in trouble. He stands up in the hospital. He talks to his daughter says baby. He's gotta go to work, and then flexes a cast off of his arm. That's right. As the car guy here. I've never watched a single facile. My God Robbie. Needs to be a weekend. Where I just watched them. All him limited never intended for N. Gadget. Yeah. All right. You should watch. You should review the fasten affairs entire franchise from the perspective of your car fan phantom. I felt from every car and drive that car while I'm talking better or judge like the move that they're doing drifting moves would that actually possible with that car would the car picked with that actually beat VIN? Diesels car modifications that he make to make that can you make a lot of muscle cars things like nose up like doing things and movies. I'm like, oh, that's not gonna happen. So so wrong. Probably here's the here's the thing. These movies are superhero movies where the two powers are that they really good at driving and they love their family. That's it. That's the whole movie they levels their family. I love my family, and I can drive because. Oh, they do anything for their family. All right. That is exactly how my friend their superhero movies. Just watch them like that. You'll be fine. We got to other trailers wanna talk about new men in black trailer is out men in black international Wilson's going to the song for this one. No, he's not even in it, though. It it does Tessa Thompson has two vendors Tessa Thompson, and Chris Hemsworth. Leeson is also in it as well as Emma Thompson and Rebecca Ferguson plays the villain. So this is second trailer. It's the it really shows off their chemistry, which we saw in Iraq. So I'm really looking forward to it very elegant or somebody else. It is not it is f f Gary gray who to wreck did the fast fear fest fears eight Phil bay the furious. Yeah, that's fine. I'm into that was that was opportunity for a segue that I did not make us a little dog going to be in it a little pug. They're not gonna have Will Smith you might as well have the little Dino. And sure worms was the little dog is the Wurmser in the trailer was was was the dog voiced by Joe Pesci or something. Or is that another dog by any of us at this table? Could could probably do the it was it was not. It was not a it was a character actor Tim Tim Blaney blank higher. Tim, bland, puppeteer and voice actor that guy's shatter. And who also did the puppeteer and four Johnny five in short circuit in short circuit to see. We'll Smith though, I'm here there. Yo speaking well Smith, the trailer for these next mill is out, and I've never the book. Have you read? Gemini, man, I have never not familiar with the brand. So apparently, it is a great piece. It's a book that's been science fiction story that time to adapt for years because it is a classic. I haven't read it. But it is about I presume cloning because you have a special forces. Top soldier light character who has to face off against a younger version of himself. Snapping hunted by his clone and Wilson plays both parts of young Smith twenty years younger versus the more grizzled Will Smith now it's like Hollywood feels like oh, we can do this. Now, we have the rehab visual technology. We have the technology. I was young affi- German. I man in the in the lead up to and game, gene and are going on Friday morning, and she hadn't watched. She hasn't made it all the way through Thor rag anything past Thor ragnarok films. So we've been watching films watch civil war. Okay. Which opens with young Tony stark young like eighties era, Robert Downey junior. We watched ragnarok, and then we watched Infinity war and the thing that she was blown away. All of these was the young thing technology is that in the and the young. Thing they did on Sam Jackson in captain marvel is astounding. Yeah. Because remember meet Joe, wait. What was the one the Benjamin button Benjamin button? Because that's when he doesn't make up. They did. Yeah. In the corner like way off and lighting was like really sort of. Yeah. Younger fine. The G. There was a little CD, but a lot of practical. Yes. And of course, with social network since they've been able to film one actor playing two roles against each other with use of somebody doubling do that Patty Duke show. That's right. The parent trap was petty. Do can do it. Anyone can Henman no mills. One from the original one was twins. Right. No Hayley mills one girl. What is Patty Duke is only one girl? There's only one. So so they filmed the scene twice and cutting the cat never the camera. Doesn't move. Yeah. They never got close to each other. Yeah. So they met him. And then reshoot it always assume that was those are twins. Haley was the first special effect. And then she was the junior high school teacher by the bell. I did not know this. Yeah. Deep cuts. Well, hey, man. That's what I'm here for old references, a couple of bits of pop culture. Star Trek news. No Picard started filming wall, very excited to see the car show, but CBS is not stopping there. They've partnered with Nickelodeon to do an animated Star Trek show in this one is going to be about kids in space gives hits Spurs. The show's going to follow a group of lawless teens wandering through the operation hell ya venturing on their own ship escape Starfleet vessel. A string. Mountain dew. Nightmare. Yes. Space rump. Springer I guess so spice spring. Yeah. Prince almost kids in space just getting wild. How they know how to run engineering it. Looks ships just run themselves computer, re aligned the Jefferies, tubes, computer. Make me a Bong. Yeah. I don't know how. They all need Bonk's. Yeah. The replicator could make. Little Bong, and they can like I want Maui wowie from nineteen Eighty-four. Everyone gets their own private quarters time on the hull deck is shared equally. Who cleans all? No one's done any the entire the we'll talking about dishes just fired about the airlock guys. That's what we do. All right and no debut time for that. This is animated though. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Nickelodeon, right? Yeah. If it could be, you know, if it's in a Cartoon Network style animation. It could be fun Steven universe. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Could be a lot of fun. Feel good news of the week. Lego has announce a partnership where on their own the labor foundation has released bricks that have braille I thought this was an awesome story braille using the studs make sense so allows both children and adults to learn braille as their building and they've done they printed the words at the Brill is four on the bricks themselves and in the letter. Yes. On the letters. That's right. Yeah. So let's just to buy three bricks that have some studs off yet to make. The braille letters. Very clever. That's amazing. This is one of those ones that I saw the other day. I was like, oh why? This. This seems obvious but super good. Wow. I think it's really cool. Yeah. It is a no brainer idea. Yeah. And I'm I love to see these in the wild and LEGO stores. Yeah. And then one last bit kind of a little bit of technology is yes, listen to podcasts. Listen to this one yesterday. Did you did your propel show? Sorry heels. Fine. Okay. Did you needed more dub step down? Yeah. That's why not did you. Listen. Listen to serial. Yeah. Some buckets, I think Jim limit or your wolf Gimblett has a podcast, go reply. All. Yeah. It's a it's. Yeah. They they just got bought by Spotify. Yes. Yes. But the that show specifically does like some tech support. And this is a car I want to bring this because this is an interesting car problem. You listen to the podcast. I'm not going to full spoiler for the podcast of really good production. But basically one of the listeners al-din and had a problem with their car and its technology problem and car problem Karak kind of but. Brothers. So the listener listens to podcast one of them is very sad. Yeah. The listener the listener loves podcast. Let's ton of podcast and plays them on his car via like bluetooth, you can play harp lay or whatever Mazda whatever the Mazda has. In all the podcast. He listened to plays fine except for one podcast and that one podcast is ninety nine percent invisible. Wow. And when he plays ninety nine percent invisible. Puckett someone if you've heard this podcast is a great design a Roman. Exactly when he plays his car. The car freezes up the center console freezes up after ten cents shuts down resets and then freeze continues freezing. Again. This is amazing canvas. And you gotta I don't wanna give I love to hear your theories. Old people and rob L like to hear your theory is a carpet, and I'll go through what they did. Because they found this interesting as well. But basically there was speculation ranging from is this because of the way. Ninety percent visible in codes audio. Yeah. Right. Like, maybe a certain Kodak or certain bit rate or certain some some something the audio engineering is this not ca-car, not run this or is actually like the sound of Roman Mars voice. Like, it's like this. The Brown noise for cars makes the car should itself is he are they using digital or analog interface with the radio digital interface. Wow. So it's probably something in the in the three tags by guess something. It's jacking up the reader, and it's crashing the crashing. The there's a illegal reference in the percent sign and that's causing the hash tag reader to bomb out rubbish. What's your theory? That's a good one, actually. But I was thinking maybe there's something that is being pushed audio Weiser's note or a series of notes just happen because I'm assuming the podcast starts with the same. The same intra music or whatever there's something in that. That is being pushed to the car in the cars like, oh, we're going into dealer mode, or I'm being told by or the maintenance. Yeah, it's like captain crunch. It's twenty six hundred. Mortar tone. So there's there's something there might be sending Tony studying the car into a either reset mode or maintenance mode, or whatever. Well, it was one of those cases where this episode reply was super enjoyable. I recommend people. Subscribe that podcast. It's a good and check it out especially this episode because the investigative process they went to try to basically provide tech support for this listener was that they created fake podcasts. Could it just call Mazda? They did. But they wanted to go through the exercise of fake podcast with all different variables from sound quality to file names and put them up, and then had the listener download them and try the pipe amount to narrow the problem. And there was quite a bit few twists and turns. I will say that where will where you really in toward is closer to what they actually did. Okay. They figured out. It is a satisfactory end in a, but I will say that in the fake pod. Tastic created. They got some pretty cool people to extra record the fake podcast with them. So Syra Kanungu makes a fake a parody nine percent visible podcast called eight percent parenthetical 's. The two minute episode where she rambles off and parenthetical and it actually is quite capable parody. So reply all in general is a podcast. Plug is a absolute like a they do the kind of reporting the expect from like high quality MPR shows about stupid bullshit. And it's very good. Very online is you're jammed your nerd this episode. They're upset one hundred forty and episode name is the Roman Mars Mazda virus. Wow. Okay. So that popped up. I had to listen to it. And it delivers are well. Let's move on before we move onto our next section. I want to thank the other small. So that makes this podcast possible this week, and that's H refs h refs is digital subscription.

That's spelled H R E F S dot com. Again, AH R S dot com. I don't have the music. No music tech. News talk to news, or technology, news technology. That's all you get this week for two tech news. That's what it does. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's out goes because we'll didn't have the music. No drinking. I'm just in your dropbox folder. It's not there. There's nothing called. We all sing a song issues one. Yeah. That's right. I. Hey, let's start the show moment of science. No ADS. Norm. Gone. I don't know what that is Intel. Chime there's a bunch of old stuff in here. Now. Those are all pre roll ad. Yeah. Yeah. This is this is a very I don't know about this operation lie by night. Yeah. Hey, I want to talk about some car stuff because a lot of car news happen this week specifically with in tesla world what tesla most the electric car company in the US. Absolutely. They had two pieces of news one was kind of like actually three love is that they've been selling cars for years. And they've always said, look if you buy the self-driving package, you're going to have everything you need to be fully autonomous at any point in the future. When we flip the switch on that. But it turns out for the flip the switch you need some new hardware. What? While while neither newest hardware is ready. It's a software problem now. So if you paid five grand for that full self-driving package us go in they swap out the thing they haven't announced that the presumably that is what they will do. It will be easy. Indicates some skepticism. Different. It's a lot of hardware that you have to. Yeah. For a company is not doing well financially to have to support a lot of older hardware is. Yeah. Because presumably it's just a thing you jam jam back 'cause you're pulling Invidia out and putting your new system in they indicators system or be hospital. Right or chant tesla model three owner with the old hardware with the old garbage. Well, I don't even know is this going to update your screen too. So won't crash when you're driving to work, I home. So oh, no. This is just for result driving this full self driving. But they developed their own chip for us. They have a formal apple a six now. In addition to doing cars. That's right. That is madness. And this board has to chips for redundancy redundancy. You gotta have done see for cars or you'll die. I mean, look I'm thinking about stuff like that the spatial eight computers, and it still blew up. Sometimes so true. And also, the the redundancy argument that they have especially for this because they have a lot ever done in the car for for power. They have all this redundancy except for when it comes to sensors because Ulan Musk's absolutely hates light are. Oh, yeah. Shade. Yeah. A lot of our leather. He thinks well, it's but a redundancy. How would you say the word redundancy is again when we talk about lighter? Yeah. Because it adds redundancy, which is why. Other people are putting keeps saying how. Well, it's expensive. And I'm like, well, yes, it was expensive. But it's getting cheaper. And people are actually putting it on cars now BMW's putting on cars Audi and say, well, he's using an argument. That's like three years old to not put something that costs money onto the car the car, but may add useful redundancy for computer vision sent that. They're using also make a live presumably of the hey, all the cars, we've sold since we started offering the self-driving bullshit for five grand is going to are good enough. Uter able exactly so so okay, I've questions are they running the same software. Both the redundant chips on these things do we know probably not yet. Right. You mean the old video boards and for? I mean, if they have to redundant systems in the machine, they're both running exactly the same software, presumably they'll both fail in the same way. If there's a software fault for hardware. Correct. Presumably it's the same software that we're done only in case of hardware failure. Issue. I would think that they should maybe considered running like what one back version. One. Right. Yeah. That will be smart like like like a safe mode. They have a safe mode for the batteries for for the energy. So you have to have. I'm sure they have some sort of safe mode. Yeah. But it's they're not always transparent about what they're doing. Did you ever read the thing about how NASA the software that operates the space? Shuttles. I think we've talked about this on one of the podcast before. But the basically they had eight or ten redundant computers. Some running different hardware running software that was functioning identical but written by completely different teams. So that the same software bug wouldn't affect all the machines at the same time. And it seems like if you're in a self driving cars where you're putting millions and millions of hours on the road each month. Like that's the kind of protein need to take not. Hey, how fast can we jam this out with this shit? We already have. And that's really my concern is how fast can we jam this how because right now it looks like they're they're the the news. That's. That led up to. They're just really pitiful quarterly earnings felt like, and it's very is. It's it was just the nounce for investors to say, hey, we're going to have some really horrible quarterly earnings coming out in two days. But we're totally going to have all the stuff ready to go. And. Yeah. And for drivers, I mean, it sounds cool. But if you talked to any other automakers anybody else who works in this who works in the space, even the pie in the sky happy. Go lucky. Everything's possible startups that three years ago, we're telling me there, again, if you years, we're gonna veve all everyone has stepped back and said, you know, what this is tougher than we anticipated. There are so many variables. And I mean, if tesla can do it good on them. But I feel like it's more just sort of smoke and mirrors and people who have invested in tesla who by Tesla's who deal with tesla. They've heard the same. Aung dance from meal on before with when it comes to, timetables, and it's always disappointing for them. So so how does I mean, I know a lot of the challenge with this getting miles on the road like just getting cars out driving? That's why Google started driving self driving cars with sensors and stuff like that almost ten years ago. Now, like, how does tesla fall in terms of miles driven with the sensors active? They collecting data from all the Tesla's they're collecting a non my data from from all the cars, and they're using what they'll do is. They talked about cut ins, whichever a car pulled on front of you. And they recently updated the software so it had handles cut ins better. And which I drove I wrote in one to the model three to Las Vegas, and it did in but all outta makers in the last three to four to six months. They're cut ins the cars are reacting smoother than they were a year ago. Oh, okay. So it's that they're not, you know, the only people who are doing this. But what they were talking about on believe Monday Monday. Sorry was that they were pushing out a shadow features. So the car would save the information of what it would have done during his cut in and then sends it back to tesla and validate it, and they say, oh, well, it shouldn't have done that or should it on this. So it does everything but actually implement what the car would do in a cut in. And then they use that to make their features better, which I think is smart. So presumably have safety feature roll out at some point in the future. It's like if somebody cuts you off the car will jam on the brakes faster than you can respond. Yes. Okay. Already happens to some extent he will swerving because everyone's our phone. Yeah. My phone is really interesting, Robin. But they what they're doing is. They're trying to understand the the. What people want to do? And that's something. If you ride a motorcycle or scooter or bicycle on busy streets, you end up getting this to six cents, but you end up. Understanding behaviors that people who are more likely than not to cut in front of you will do like how they drive. So when I'm writing I have a Vespa that I read around the city, and I review motorcycles. And when I'm writing I'm like, okay that person is more like they cut in front of me, then this person is almost conscious like weaving a little bit delay. It's just this little itty bitty the way they're driving. So they're trying to figure that out with cars with AI, which is great. If you could figure it out, but it's also very very difficult and clean data's going to getting clean data. Because I'm in addition to looking at the car, I'm looking at wheels also looking at that rear view mirror that are that side MIR if someone isn't looking at that, and you know, seeing is. Yeah, you're not seeing is not something that these cameras can it. There's so much sort of intuition that you build up as a driver that you don't even realize and to say, well, it's just a software problem, we can fix it. And it by the end of this year. We're going to have full self driving cars in all situations. Which is to me is like he said that. Yes. Wow. They will not be geo fenced, and he said that they would work in dense urban area. Like San Francisco in New York, that's bonkers that way too. I think wish they would qualify that. I think most people. Board before he made the tweets. I mean, this is this. He said. Event. Okay. Stood up in his, you know, he had his very smart people come out and say the things they're going to say, and then he would stand up and say like, and maybe that's where investors like I think practically for people only cars and people are looking to buy these cars in the next twenty twelve to twenty four months. They would be happy. If the full Tommy work just in the freeways, and that's even a big jump. That would be that would be totally satisfactory people like taking control, you don't need the robot taxi. It's the worst driving is commuting. Yeah. Exactly. And if you can solve that problem ninety five or nine percent confidence. That's a big selling point. You don't need the headline of of full Tani in urban dense environments. I mean, this this is so the phone camera quality place where if you over promise and under deliver, you know, it's not great. But it does. Well, I get the portrait mode the work as well as I like over promising and under delivering with this kind of thing could destroy this company. Yeah. And they kill a few people. With the cars. They also concerns thing that might destroy its right now is the market and one competitors coming up, and I love to hear rob from you. What you think of the other competitor? Because we don't know a lot about what electric cars coming out next two years. But also there they saw a lot of three last year the made a profit on the previous quarter, but turns they didn't saw a lot of model Esther X's and all because people happy by now, maybe they missed priced. Maybe it was it was too good of a deal and people want to spend a hundred thousand dollars on on the other car. And so they had the bump up the the rain and they found ways optimize that in. Maybe they'll move the needle. But is the market ready to make them a, you know compete on same level as an ice. It's also kind of unclear if they're like there's an upgrade cycle for these cars. Well, he's been very adamant that are the cars. Don't get upgrades typical GAM icicle really any other. Maker because everyone the Chevy volt the Chevys eventually that will get an updated a new body business. Neubauer it'll get the whole thing, and tesla is very much. Oh, we'll just make we make software updates and they'll be editor of changes to the hardware and stuff like that. But you know, your car will Volve in your in your parking space, which is great because that's something that, you know, wasn't happening before tesla. But that's great for current owners. Yeah. When you're looking at the cars, and you're like, well, here's a car that's been out for five years. Six years, you know for model as and you're like, well BMW has this and Jaguar has this and Audi has this not making the big changes. When you're and that's automakers. No, you know, there's there's a three to five year cycle for car. And then you just you make some changes because people want something new, but and if you just keep if we had the same well Porsche is not a good example. Because is all they have very that design language, and they're sticking to their bad or they look like Porsches. Yeah. Yeah. But you know, if if you want, you know, a f. Fifty the new f one your damn it looks like it's ready to tear down a building compared to the generation before. So that it has written on the front real big. Visit like the letters are as tall as a toddler like that's what I want toddler size letters in that market, right? In the space where people are spending six figures on a car, the new and shiny on the outside goes, a long way, and those kind of subtle revamps to say that the one you bought this year is better than the one of your neighbor about last year. That's a big sunk. It. But it is it's almost no one buys cars based on logic. But however that said there's a thing that happened. And over the prices are good example when prices came out in the early two thousands. They were like they looked like cool future cars they did. And and then they got real ugly within like four or five years. And now now they're like down there with the yard and the and the ago cars at the low end of the range. And and I think I mean, the thing that happens is the first model s that rolled off the line still looks like like, the brand new model s. The colors and the guerrillas changed a little bit got rid of the grill. Yeah. But which is a good change. Yeah. But I like the idea the they don't change the way the iphone looks every year. I understand I think this idea of having constant Zeilinger across the life of a model. So maybe the next the model t which probably is already taken by somebody. I don't know. And I'm like when they replace the model S, I assume it will be what they knew sedan that has an entirely new design language designed the last ten or fifteen or twenty years or long is seems appropriate. But I I mean, I don't know it's they have they have they have the model y which is their crossover, which is I think small x basically big thing all three. So the model X was oh cool. Look at it. But those doors late just era the whole. Yeah, they're boondoggle host has because they were difficult to engineer. They had the lays people who bought them had to bring them back. You know, it's a lot. Lot of money, and then their people just wouldn't buy that car because of those doors. I don't wanna wait ten seconds to get in and out of my car one hundred twenty grand for an SUV that's built on sedan chassis is a lot. Yeah. So the model y I almost feel like the model I should've come out before the mall because the market wants crossovers, and that's where Hyundai and Kia and BMW Jaguar and everyone else who's making these electric cars. They're all going with crossovers SUV's because that's where the market is storage and market is it just keeps going down and down, and it might rebound in a few years. People change what they want to do. But it's unlikely because the crossovers and SUV's a smaller ones drive as well as a car now. And you're like, well, I have all this utility. I can shove all the stuff in the back of this. It's a little bit taller. So it's easier for me to get in and out, especially older or carseat kids. Yeah. And you have your sites. Yeah. If you have an if. Yeah, if you have children like I've got lean down like crutch, you know, if I can just stand up like a regular human and put my kid in and not hurt my back. That's that's that's the point. I mean, it seems like everything that they've done so far has been with supply chain in mind in the same way that apple like apple started with the ipod because they wanted to get the price of screens and flash memory down. Right. So that they could eventually get to the point that the I phone would call six hundred dollars instead of two, and it seems like they started with the with the roadsters so they could get battery capacity and electric motor capacity up, and then they did the s which was a high premium high dollar premium product. So they could get more battery capacity and figure out the manufacturing stuff. And it seems like you don't wanna go mass mass mass-market until you have until you've scaled that whole supply chain that giant Fremont factory out gig of battery master plan. Elon Musk's master plan is actually a very good plan. We make high end cars we sell to rich people. So we can figure out how to make a car that, you know, regular electric car that everyone can buy let the expensive people bootstrap. But then Alon and tesla hip putting they creating their own roadblocks. We're gonna make the dreadnought the, you know, the machine that builds machine, which everyone told don't do that the one. So the idea was that the the carline would be almost entirely automate. Oh, right to be Thomas. You you you feed bits, and then cars come out the other end and everyone who builds cars who's building cars for decades and people that he hired who had built cars for decades. But you can't do that. No. We're going to do that. You know, you really can't do that. There's all these variables all these things you need actual humans to take care of. No, no, we're going to do that. And then after just wasting money for eight months to year. Then there was a mea culpa. He's like, yeah. We couldn't do that. Okay. After everyone tells you in. The frustration for people who work for for for work under e LAN, and then quit makes it difficult for tesla to hire equally talented people as it goes forward. Even if is going to be less of a micro manager, if you work for four new work for three decades on, you know, the Ford fusion line, and you know, what you're doing. If you see these if you talked to these other executives and everyone in the industry talks, and they're like, I didn't have a good time there because he micromanage and he didn't let me do my job. You're not gonna leave Ford to go work for somebody. Who might not let you do your job. Yeah. Well, especially with seems fairly distracted these days digging holes and going to Spain. Yeah. Well, he's pretty hands office space, and that's you know, other and that's working out. Great. So I feel like, you know. So let's hear about some of the alternatives then because you've surveyed the landscape for electric cars and he's driven like even the Jaguar pace. And so I know the markets are very different for US, and for Asia where there are a lot of electric car companies and even cars on the work that you can buy, but the US what's coming out for people in the next year or two that can look forward to that will be an alternative to something like three or more y so for models three model, y it is very odd for me to say this, but Kia and Hyundai are killing it there litter that that automaker partnership sisterhood whatever you wanna call it the are killing it with their electric crossovers. We have the we did a review of the the the Kona EV the Kona the ice version, the internal combustion version is a good car. The Kona UV is a better car is a fun. Car to drive the the I drove the Kia soul EV in Korea for a day that is a like, the Kia soul. It was one of those cars that I got into. And I'm like this car is going to solve I've rented those before the same reaction. This is this is a fun little heavily this kid doesn't suck. Yeah. And so the EV soul is an amazing little card. The the KEA Niro e v I haven't driven it. But someone at work has I'm waiting to get a review in he liked it. It's not as fun as the Conan. That's basically what what I figured out. And so these are basically cars that have both versions where they can amortize in d and design for having an ice version, which they knows in a cell in a certain part of the world, even the US and then roll out. They don't need to make seven thousand a month. They can roll an e version that even better, and they're in that like under forty thousand dollar gets you two hundred fifty miles say, yes, this is like two hundred two hundred fifty miles. Standard now like seventy five it's funny because Tesla's set the precedent. They set the precedent for thirty five thousand dollar car that gets over like say over to twenty five. Okay. They set that precedent. And then they have difficulty actually meeting it because the model is very expensive car to Bill because you're new automaker. You don't have the resources, and you don't have the the experience of building a lot of cars and able to quickly retool in that quickly. Very relatively spoke lever Carmen. Yeah. Car manufactured retool. Your your align foreign electric car when I went to GM and watch them build Chevy bolts, and they were building ice cars, and she'll be bolts on the exact same line. And they're like, well, if we need more Chevy, we can just makes more Chevy bolts. Yeah. Tesla can do for g I mean, they they will they have blinds told reach car, right? Yeah. It's it's really fascinating. Because like you you look at that. And you think okay, the model X and the S built on the same. Chassis? So they should be able to just one car is an x one cars in Essen, the bodies come off, the different lines or whatever. But they don't work that way. It's just it's just very it's it's easy. It's not easy. It's hard to build one car. Yeah. You can do it. If you have a lot of money, but it's hard it's impossible to scale that. And that's what Tesla's been running into every year with every new car, and you know, they've been over the over valued which has really been bad for them when when they need to raise money, it's really hard. Yeah. So it's it's been difficult for them. They made a lot of decisions that have hurt them. They instead of listening to the to the rest of the industry and saying, hey, you know, we know you're doing this this thing, but they're still traditional ways you need to actually achieve this. And you know, you know, we're doing the race for up to. Yeah. They've over disrupted, and it's hurt them and hurt them, you know, really badly, especially with the lays. I mean, I've. Who assume as the model three was announced they put down that deposit and then to. Yeah. And then two years, you know, a year later, they're like, where's this car? And like, you know, what fine, and they Dino they need a car. Yeah. You know, I need a car. Now, I'm not gonna wait two years or three years or however long it takes for me to get the car that I actually want. So I'm getting my deposit back, which is more than us. Yeah. There's more has been more than cases of people having difficulty getting their money back and buying something else. Whether it'd be you know, a hybrid or an e or just an ice car because he just they just need a car. I mean, the thing is even though tesla raised billions of dollars at this point. It's still like. That's practically nothing compared to the cost of starting up a fully-fledged car manufacturer is it's not like starting up a software company. It's there's a lot of capital expense and a lot of people in like they have four like the room with the engineers at tesla headquarters and Fremont is as long as the factory and filled with desks full of people like it is unbelievable. The number of people that work there. 'cause my question is how does this boat for other car startups who are working on a Thomas cars are vs? If they're not gonna have that capital name. They have you know, a couple hundred million. Is there? No promise for them. I think you know, when you look at the companies like Riviera I think Reince been smart because they want to build their truck. But the also want to build cars for or vehicles electric, something for other people, and they just got some an investment from Ford, and this is after they decide not to do an investment GM because if they had done something with GM, it would have been exclusive deal with them, and they wanna be able to build for other people, and they have money from Amazon the from four. So these are companies out going to work not just they will be to be and not just start consumer make a lot of their money building specialize vehicles, or especially technology that even license or subcontract and build a misses that way. Yes. So it's the the ability to to sort of supplement your your income with something that makes money so you could make that cool electric truck. So, you know, the fortunate always be a niche which with. Yeah, it's it's going. It's not going to be this huge thing. You know, it's electric. Kruk has to appeal to someone who's a first adopter and uses a truck, which it's a sub. Yeah. It's it's a very it's a it's a weird little thing because truck people are very, you know, the people who roll coal. They're driving trucks. They're not driving. You know? Pundits. Your what's your trick? Coal rolling equivalent have fireworks on the like tesla. Coil shoots at other. I mean, I assume that a lot of the end for those smaller companies is that they're hoping to either get bought or to have like co-manufacturing deals with Ford Ford and Mazda used to do where Ford manufacturers cars that are labeled with their label using their technology on their lines and stuff like that. Yeah. For for branded version of that same same drivetrain. It's a bit like Waymo. I wasn't sure what is the end for a while. What is the endgame for Waymo, you pay Google what you do because everyone car that picks you up, and because most Arnaud makers were already working on the, you know, everyone's like autopilot, you know, Jaguar invented the adaptive cruise control like in the nineties. So that's not anything new lane. Keep assist isn't really anything. It's new basically took Bosch hardware turned it up to eleven. And but everyone else in in the industry because they've been around for decades, and they have lawyers, and they know what they have been very careful about this. But it was way more. I was like what what is their end game. And then you like oh Honda hasn't really done much in this this area. They've lagged behind Chrysler hasn't really done much in this area. They've lagged behind. So now, they have this partnership. So I think a lot of these, you know, the the the the Lucid's, and I don't know about Faraday future. But you know, lucid and Riviere they're looking for that sort of partnership or deal or cash infusion from someone. We're like, hey, we making this thing we will make it for you. And then in the Asian market for lauded of like Chinese car companies. So in maybe fewer regulations, and what they can experiment with and do and and like is while bus there it is. I don't know if it's the wild west, but I sat in a tiny electric car that was. It was smaller than the smart who was like a little liking just kind of cruise around that was built in the factory that didn't exist. Ten months before. Oh, my good and the gentleman I was talking to who from that company. Just kept saying China fast. China fast. Unlike you broke ground ten months ago, China fast, I mean, so they can move so much quicker. When it comes to building permits, getting factories up tooling, like all the stuff, which I you know, I drove that car in a building like in a circle. So it wasn't like I drove it on the street or anything because it was the ended up not ever making the car they decided to pivot to something else because China fast. And got named this driving it around. This is just built this, and you know, the ability to move quicker, and as the, you know, the middle class grows in China, you have to sign up for a lottery to get to get a license for your car. You can't just dry get a gig an ice car and drive you sign up for a lottery. And then if you win you get to drive the car unless it's an easy. Oh, then you can just by just by a car. So it's all about growth and looking top of the world in one industry. You talk about your government incentive. Yeah. It's like you can't. Yeah. You can buy your car, but we might not be able to drive it. But if you buy this car, if you buy the Neo whatever news one of the Jews, call the tesla of China, if you buy this Neil, you can drive that whenever you all make it as prestigious as having Reseda. Yeah. Yeah. You seen let you're seeing less and less of the sort of copycatting that you saw before because you would just look like well. That's a Land Rover. Yeah. That's a land. That's that's the Mercedes. That's a BMW any everything. And you're seeing less and less than that over there as these automakers are learning and coming up with their own brand and becoming their, you know, their own resell. You're starting to see more of a design style. Yeah. That's coming out of China, just knockoffs. Yeah. Which is which is really nice because I mean, it's the ability to move as quickly as they are over there. Especially in the field is really good for for us because any mistakes they make over there. We can learn from have you have you seen the video of the -partment buildings. Go up in like three days. I've seen the bridges built in like thirty minutes or something they prefab each floor, and then bring them on trucks, and then just stack them up each other and Baltimore in it's nana's. Yeah. It's crazy. Well, you can always follow more of Robbie's car coverage on and gadget and Lada. Good car coverage. I read all time. Oh. Oh, what's what's going on? And also like, oh, yeah. That that's that's rob. I know him. He likes cars. Speaking of goes through the rest of technology news quite a bit quickly because we're running short on time little bit. But we wonder what's the deal? Waymo? What's Google doing with these experiments and these kind of? Moonshot spin ups, and there is another subsidiary Google that is coming real. This is now so wing, which is there a drone company aviation has now been certified by the FAA and parmesan transportation to start making deliveries the cyz the drone company that does basically Vitale style so goes up, and then it can fly this kind of CLYDE up like traditional quad copter style and fly long distances, and they're going to be working in Virginia doing some consumer deliveries in rural areas, not flying over people. But this is one step closer to that that the future were all promised like five years ago. Drones deliver the burrito do the race. That's right. Not not in big cities in places where it's tough and more maybe really expensive to get fed ex or UPS truck out there. Yeah. I went to the is land drop it with like a little parent who are now. I either. Robot arm? I think it's a skyhook sky. Oh, it lowers it down on a clause veto style will start hover and then. Yeah, that's cool. And they can grab it like True Lies and hold Notre native Mus. Yeah. One of his tornado this I feel like I've seen video of this may be on the X page on the Google X page, but good for them. And really just we've saw them at maker faire couple years ago, really cool to see those experiments really take off so to speak. Okay. Samsung phones, I know they're boring, but we have some new check in phones and may be boring. This doubts too excited. As boring phone that's been five years, and it may be indicative other devices using this fobel Olympic -nology Samsung leader in foetal leads as promised Fola. Oh, go another name for this. Mobile displays in all sorts of devices, including their galaxy fold two thousand dollar phone that folds in half, and maybe doesn't phone fold quite well orders today. Well, no, wait what they've they've delayed. The phone even though there's sent out. Why would they the lots of this close to the review units for the my believe have have now fold to a point where they worked folded loose this mortal? Yes, yeah. The creases are there. And I think it's because the flush full design like the no radius on the on the on the inner lip. So from what I read there were couple of different ways that they failed some seem to get stuff inside the hinges inside underneath the screen. So there's a little bit of a bump. And then when you pull it out flat than that bump would break the back of the screen, and then you'd have a dead stripe in the middle of the screen as I could some of the reviewers took off the top. If you buy any device that has a screen like you naturally. So satisfying, except when it breaks your phone killed the phone. Some of them seem to have had if they were dropped on the hinge that seemed to cause problem. So it seems like I like I read these reviews and what they probably thirty fifty one hundred phones and four of them died publicly within hours of receiving within hours within a week. Yeah. So you wonder how this one like I mean, I guess is from the same people that brought you these Samsung galaxy note seven the phone that you reminded not to bring on the airplane. Every time you got an airplane for most of two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen. I can't remember. But anyway, I mean, people were worried about durability for shore tried to address other video showed them. Here's a robot folding this phone, you know, hundreds of thousands of times, they put it in a pocket with some lint in between those folds. Nope. Whoops, robots have a lent. Yeah. Yeah. They don't. They don't have a lot of receipts and stuff they lean room full test. Maybe not the most reliable. Well, you can do there's like tumblers you can put things into to whether any more. That's all porn poor ports. Gone on tumbler. No, physical tumblers motorise motorized devices. The chambers that you can put rocks in than the cloud. All polisher, right. Yeah. Like a rock polish. You could put a phone in there with with receipts in business cards lands and use that as a way to stress whether keys that that'd be a fine test. They didn't do that. They didn't do that. Don't they what are they doing? How are they going to go and sell these things anyway to grand I don't know they've delayed it they did laid it, you know, indefinitely delayed it the problem it with this is that they already planned on selling. Guess how many the expected to year not a billion? There aren't even hundred seven thousand hold on. Hold on sixty nine hundred point two five million four hundred twenty million. They're planning million of these. Let's closest was nice price steaming. Yeah. I mean. Small percentage of smartphone market, and even like maybe less than ten percent of how many notes were sold last year. But that's still a lot of phone two thousand dollars thousand dollar phone. How who what? Played with that phone when really it was kind of cool. But I was like, oh, this is too there. I don't know if it, bro. I was when I was in New York for the auto show, they brought into the office, and I was opening and I like the tiny little screen on the front. Yeah. 'cause I like I like small phones, I'm still I'm still rolling my six s because audio port music the analog hole. Yeah. I got the analog hole. And and I was like, oh, this is have audio port that I know of never my but garbage is kind of cool because like, oh, this is kind of cool, but it's felt like any moment. Like if I sneezed on it. So where do you see foldable splice is that a dead technology or does it have practical application materials science, but there's two great venues for material science hair product and foldable screens. Yeah. That's where all the work is going these days. Okay. Full screen phone still seems kinda cool 'cause I'm going to go out and buy an ipad mini. The size of this thing. Yeah. Because we have pulled in half. But I need you can't like music stuff and for traveling. It's light hazard of an analog. Whole silly got the thumbprint thing. Yeah. So I don't have to stare at it too. Yeah. I mean, less of a problem. Sure. Manufacturing get better. But there is still like the physics of like, this is still a film. Right. Like a display at some point. You should not be folding it on a heavy crease. That's twentieth century thinking norm. You got think like twenty five hundred thousand expect the user to unfold it and see it as one clear display. I understand if you have a line there and say, it will always be two displays in. No saying they have long not like a tiny. Yeah. Hin? There where tiny that you sort of deal with when you're trying to watch a movie and there's a lion right through Thors face. I mean, do people really want to use a phone the square aspect ratio? Really? I is in the benefit more having multitasking. I'll be honest. The best part of this whole stories of the review units died almost like like, the two thousand dollar phone is ludicrous. Yeah. Like, especially like, it's a pretty thick phone when it's folded it you could hurt somebody with it felt like a baton this hefty. You could you could kill a man with this this. Yeah. So broken. Well, it's still a good weapon. Yeah. So it seems like. This reminds me a lot of those in two thousand ten twenty eleven when there were everybody's making weird Janke phones that had like a neat concept that was executed poorly. This firmly fits in that category for me. Right. It's like it's like this is going to undoubtedly ten years from now we're gonna look like. Oh, yeah. Remember that? When those the first one it was bad. But it was. Yeah. And I think that's where we are going to sell an EBay and five year for fifty thousand. Yeah. They're only one prototype because they never folded it. It's just like Phil houses, go real. Maybe keeps the hinge keeps track of how many towns it's been full. So oh, God three thirty foles left. The the funny thing about this to me is that also everybody in their reporting posted the reviews before they announced they were indefinitely postponing the launch. And then they had to come back and be like well Simpson came and collected the phone from us. I mean, obviously there always short term loans. But but like when somebody had one die somebody had delivered a fresh one within like, six hours, and some cases, I think he was it is I can't imagine either. Either Samsung knew this was going to happen, and like they had to release it anyway, or they didn't expect this to happen and scrambled. Really really, well 'cause I can't imagine what a nightmare. It was for the poor people working on marketing at home. And I'll here here's. Yeah. Who is it? So we've got we know you have the phone in there, come out Ned schools. Yes. Style two screens practice. Thanks. Is it useful? I'll take one screen. I'm old school. It's number Kyocera echo like people. Exactly, right. People trying to put two screens on a phone with multitasking purposes for digital keyboard purposes, for all sorts of purpose. Remember the courier? Never came out. But the whole idea was like a tablet with. I you know, what I want. I want the phone the phone dock that looks like a laptop that motive Motorola thing. Motto acts Trix, that's it. Good phone. The phone was very good of the process are good enough now. Yeah. Should be right. Max are going to be our next year. Probably. Yeah. And you know, they gotta have room for keyboard? More bad keyboards? Yeah. All right last bit of technology news. Do you like Amazon? Sure making turns. No, no, I just keep in the trash and few months. Yeah. Here's the box. And then I put it in the box. And then it just sits on the counter few months. And then they'd say, hey, we're going to charge you the three dollars because you never sent that. But if you do Senate back, we'll probably three bucks if you complain enough if you complain the right way, they're just like, you know, just dispose at this yourself customer's. Always right. Yeah. It's better for the customer to be happy. Mccain that little you set the wrong thing, I ordered an iphone and you sent me a box of dog food. What's keep the dog? Is there a tumbler for or medium tumbler for like biggest Amazon mistakes that that they've made in China or? Right. Well, if you're gonna make Amazon they have now, partnered with Kohl's. Oh, and where you could drop off the thing you want return, and they'll package it up and send it back. That's nice. So then have to go to Coles cost anything in some place. Does not cost. Anything does cold? Just they just want you in the Kohl's Kohl's jewel this truth. It is a trick. He's like a Roth, right? It's closed been into Kohl's once. That was the pick up an order my mother-in-law bought. Wow. Because the mid western thing. Yeah. And not really a who doesn't love. Bayer thing. Not only. The city Homa my house, right? Yeah. Yeah. But in a lot of places in America, Kohl's is a very popular place, and it's acceptable. And it's maybe more convenient than having to packet something up and drop it at a UPS store Kohl's cults feels like the place you go back to school shopping. Like when you when you're like, seventh grade need, some cool clothes, go to Kohl's pair of fresh bear Levi's kicks. And like a like a I mean, my date would have been like a deep purple concert tortilla shirt, but house, probably like nirvana never mind or something. Like that in old cool. Yeah. I the kids. Is Kohl's keeping the stuff or they actually sending it back. They all have a partnership with Amazon where they will pack it. They have boxes on truck. Just goes to one spot at the end of the day. Gimme all your junk. I kinda wanna buy one of those crates Amazon returns because you can just by like Amazon like a big giant trot like like Amazon. Yes. No. They do. Did you read this on Twitter? Now, this maybe I mean, but this actual article about this weight. So it's like, the Wu back of crab. Damas on is there said price, or is there an no idea how it works. Okay. I don't I don't think it's true. Looking I got twenty bucks in my pocket action. I can just go. And what did I get, you know, trash I'm like, well, he's tried. At least have these boxes for my cat buying Amazon return pallets liquidation auctions. There are plenty of ways to buy merchandise that you can flip later resell flea market or your store even online. But no matter what you are buying it. Seems that nowadays the margins profit are slim and barely make your time and effort work. We're. So you got to pay a lot prices are way below wholesale keeps you not every location. So you have to do research. This seems like a bad page that I'm on a wire. Amazon return ballots business the products. They sell are respectable quality. That's. I kill the motherboard with the thing. I bought from Amazon last week. Well, all right. Let's technology. News will get one last segment coming up can you play the VR minute. Jane real minute virtual reality this week. For reality. There's those weak guy. From the time tunnel, and he just yelled through these things happen. We're going to keep it short this week. Because all anticipation in all speculation leads to. That's right. It is all all the time. That's the future. VR? I'm gonna get with the speculation. I next week is Facebook's big developer conference. Eight f eight of the furious fate, the fate of Zok, and everyone expects that there will be some news about the release date or maybe even launching next week for the Oculus quest. So it'll be a lot of apology. And then here's something shiny. Well, I'm looking for sorry about democracy and western civilization, but also shiny, shiny. Gimme gimme gimme take. My money's take. Money's Google's putting pressure on the quest though. Right is. Yes. So exciting. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think having used the quest OC five and some of the ports like play super high. Oh that was good and they had some original selfish fears. I love love the sport scramble thing. But. I want to really makes use of the room scale. Yeah. And when you have cut of inside tracking and any room, I think will rush would really really good for it. I'm twenty two stuff. I'm really curious about quest on is how like this Chapparal equivalent and all that stuff stiff to pre configured the room. You know, does it gives it smart enough to read the room and know where to safe to walk around and stuff like that is what I'm really super because it's supposed to be mass market advice. Right people like they've priced it. I think four hundred bucks for something that you don't need to plug into pewter people are gonna be excited about that. And if it's their first VR vice of this people waiting, I'm ready for VR. But let's not I don't need to have a laptop only Deva PC, and you could actually have hands in. I'll might spend that four hundred dollars would have spent on a high end game console. You want to be frivolous. Well, and then and then you look at things like windows are slam room configuration is really great. But my dog scoops her bed around than I have to reconfigure. The room because it doesn't recognize it. Yeah. Anyway. Yeah. If my my little robot that cleans the my house, if it has a little sweetie thing, and it reads my room. I would hope that you can who made games would like every time. You turn on just goes will will will won't maybe with lighter will will will will. Trump's. Yeah. Chumps it's probably a little bit expensive other bits of your news. Video watch Jimmy Fallon had Beezer beat saber on with religion oh point beat saver. It's fabulous. Captain marvel playing beat saver and kicking Jimmy Fallon's button. Sabre sounds right? It's really fun video. And then you mentioned lots on quest. There was okay. And then lob. Oh, yeah. You've spent the logo I have built all the Laba. Oh elephant the bird, the wind pedal blaster, we're going to video shortly. So to get your impressions, but quick quick. Fifteen second review. It works much better than I expected the -til. The are for my daughter is like she didn't want to build a LeBow. 'cause it's it's she's six it's a little hard for that edge. But the Dulce like building the lava the billing Superfund, very satisfying, the actual VR. She played with her for like four minutes was like, hey, dad. Can I go play the game on the in your office because she seemed really she seeing the real VR spoiled so jaded, but but the thing I will say is like the things that they do with the I R camera on the right, joy Khan, and the multiple I am used to get increased accuracy. And like kind of six off work shockingly. Well that elephant thing you'll you'll see I can't wait to see what you think. I'm really curious to see what makes you sick Gina didn't try. Well. Yeah. But like, the there's a tilt brush equivalent that works shockingly well with that L with the elephant wives. And that's that works because they know the range of motion of the cardboard, and they have I am you. In both of the pieces of the guard board they stats to three things and your head the camera and the camera when you're headed is. Yeah. And it works shockingly. Well, these social they those are labeled as usual of the face of the elephant there's five stickies, and they the other thing. That's awesome about it that I didn't realize on the previous law. I built is that in that discover tab the blue section they show you and illustrate how everything works. So you can see like even show you what the camera sees they show you. They let you experiment on your own with the camera live all sorts of stuff. It's it's really really neat. I'm looking forward to bomb. Yeah. It should be fun. Great.

My APR's were through the roof, and I paid credit card companies fortune in interest in fees because I didn't have a credit history. Now, I'm older I've built some credit, but I'm still getting dinged with annual fees and foreign transaction fees. But if you ever heard of a credit card company that actually helps you avoid paying those fees and unexpected interest charges while just did and it complete change the way, I think about credit cards. This new company is called pedal pedal, uses advanced technology partners with web Bank member FDIC to provide access to visa credit card long with the simple modern mobile app experiences to help you build credit. You can qualify even if you've never had credit in the past. But make no mistake pedals great for anyone looking for more from their credit card company when pedal says, no fees. They mean, it even if you miss a payment, no annual fees foreign transaction. Fees or any other kind of fees pedal, suggests you void interest charges entirely by paying full each month. They also let you automate your payments on their mobile apps, you never miss one. As of today there variable APR's range from fifteen point two four percent to twenty six point two four percent.

Also with us is Glen Weldon of the NPR arts desk. Hi Glen ruined the dec- here so late. So. I'm gonna tell you the minute that this telecast was over. I started seeing tweets from people who said I can't wait to see what you guys think. Green book won best picture, if you don't listen to the show, you may not know this, but we have not been big fans of green book. Green book also won for its screenplay and best original screenplay. Best original screenplay. So I was left somewhat puzzled by that. I will admit left a little bit puzzled and also one four Mahershala Ali for best supporting actor, and look I love Marshall alley and he's very good in Greenville. And I am pretending. He won for Spiderman into the spider verse. Which by the way, one minute made it feature which is great because it was the best one and the most inventive one which I thought was really fantastic the one that I'm holding onto a white knuckled grip. That's that's that's what I'm gonna take this. There's other good news. We'll get share. So people wanted to know how we felt about green book winning best picture. How did you guys feel about that into every generation crash wins best picture, and I think this is a redux of that? We're gonna look back on this and think well, I'm looking back on it. Now, two minutes layer and thinking, Nope. That was wrong as you mentioned in your review on NPR dot org. Linda, it is not gonna age. Well, this is the film. That's it's. Sell-by data's passed already. And it's it's just gonna look worse and worse as years go by that sell by date is one thousand nine hundred eighty and I do think that you may see in the coming months a discussion of who is voting for these. I I really think I really think a discussion of who gets to vote for the Academy Awards is going to come into play of how a movie that when it was nominated had not really connected with audiences or critics that was really seems to have no constituency how a well run Oscar campaign and a very old fashioned voting body came together to create a best picture winner. That is deeply deeply unsatisfying for a broad swath of people. Yeah. So we had green book up at the top winning those awards. You also had bohemian rhapsody. Now, I don't know if you don't listen to the show, you might not know this. But we've not been big fans of me. On this show it one for a couple of sound awards. And then it also went for Rami Malik and film, and film editing, and film editing hitting. Yeah. A thing for which it has been ridiculed on the internet, which is very unusual. So how do we feel about human rob C, which by the way, a whole bunch of awards given out everybody gives their speeches including best actor, and nobody mentions Bryan singer credited director who apparently let go partway through filming and allegedly not related. So who knows is also has also been accused of various kinds of sexual misconduct. So nobody wants to talk about him. So nobody mentions it so it sounds like the film has no direct. I was gonna say the the Academy Award for best gymnastics was four different Oscar winners finding a way to not aknowledge the existence of the director of this film, the editing. One is one that stood out to me because it I like, this is a poorly edited film. And then the more I thought about it the more you realize, okay. So that editor is in that editing room by himself. There is no director looking over his shoulder. So if anybody's responsible for salvaging, this film and making it at least a product that can get out into the world. It's probably that guy. So maybe the industry has just sort of, you know, saying good on you. When you look at the four winners for bogeyman rhapsody, all four categories are the ones in which you create the illusion of Rami Malik performing as Freddie Mercury. And so you are his lip synching. You're creating these kind of recreating these live performances without him, salmon like there is a technical feat at work there. And the thing that people love about low hime rhapsody seems to largely be man. I love those Queen songs I love hearing those Queen songs, I love the way those Queen songs are performed in this movie that is a feet of sound mixing sound editing, film, editing and acting. Yeah. I guess. I'm just trying to justify I cannot just now green book winning best original screenplay. So I am rasping. And then I don't wanna just rehash the whole thing. I don't like either of those movies. I don't like green book, I didn't like bohemian rhapsody too bad for me. They both one big awards. I am a bigger fan of Roma which one three big wards at won best foreign language film. It won a best cinematography for Alphonse. Oh Koran and a best director Alfonso forum. But it did not take home best picture as I predicted. Yeah. Unfolded exactly as I predicted. He he gets the stuff in the early date and not the big one I hear that. And also there were some technical awards for my pick for best picture was Black Panther. And there were some not technical. There were kind of some creative awards for them early on the production design for the visuals. Yeah. The production design the costuming eventually later the score as well. I was hoping that those Black Panther awards might, you know, speak to some swell that was going to happen. And then it just never swelled bohemian rhapsody certainly seemed like it was on course to sweep it one four out of the five that it was nominated four green book also won three out of the five. It was nominated for you know, what one one out of ten it was nominated for was the favourite just kept whipping kept biffing every and then finally finally we get the thing that I wanted most dearly which is Libya Coleman giving as I predicted a charming sputtering. Credibly, British speech. My kids are watching. Well, if you're not then we'll kind of well done. Sudapet you all this is not going to happen again. And. An any little go who's who's proxima speech on the Tel? You never know when I I I used to clean and I loved that job. I did spend quite love my time imagining so piece wrap up right? Okay. And, you know, no tears for Glenn Close, please. She's great. She will have another swing and I'm glad you didn't win for the wife because I didn't think that performance was particularly the one she should be immortalized for that. She's great in his life, tastes Dealey. Yeah. But now, but the Olympia Coleman speech was one of my favorite speeches among among several. I think Ruth Carter winning for costuming Ed black path both of those Black Panther for costuming and for and for him to be production design, those both wonderful speeches and great big moments. And. My family supported me through the rest of the time the straits so all of those who come next to keep going to never give up. And when you think it's impossible. Just remember to say this piece of advice. I got from very wise woman. I did my best and my best is good enough. Thank you. I was delighted to see that. Yeah. And while we're talking about actresses that were very fond of it was expected that Regina king would win for if Beale street could talk, but it was delightful men, the less. I am a huge fan of her. There was a lovely moment with Chris Evans, helping her up the stairs onto the stage. Just to throw the little more charm at it. It has led to lots of wonderful reminiscing about the many many good performances people have seen from Regina king over the years. So I was I was thrilled about that. We mentioned the Black Panther one for a score as well. The big Urinson 's award for score. And then there's also a regional song. And I think it was. Somewhat a foregone conclusion that it would be shallow so many. I mean, it felt like it was going to be show. And it was shallow and lady Gaga on Bradley Cooper came out and performed. What did you think of that performance though? Sure. I mean, it was great. You know what she does? Let's like, you know, it's and he was a little pitchy dog. But you know, I don't think they had a warm-up. That's the thing that just kind of stepped out from the from the seats, and they made it look like they just stepped out of the audience. I assume they did some sort of I feel like they must have done one. What the better probably? Yes. Now. I mean that is not a very forgiving room for for vocal performances, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings who performed who performed when a cowboy trades his Spurs for wings. They're two of my favorite performers, but they're standing in the middle of a gigantic stage and just their voices are just bouncing off of these cavernous ceilings, it is not a very forgiving room for life performance. They still sounded great the lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper as as to be expected. Got a little bit more of a production around what they were doing. And I thought it was very effective. Yeah. And I wanted to talk about another speech that I was super very very much enjoyed which was Spike Lee who has never won a competitive Oscar. He's only had an honorary Oscar despite his long career of very accomplished career making everything from documentaries to of course, is very very famous narrative films. He won best adapted screenplay with a couple of other writers for black clansmen and. You know, we talked about this while we were watching it. But you know, Spike Lee is is kind of a, you know, rebellious, dude, he's a little bit of a, you know, he will give scowl to a lot of things a very artful scowl and seeing him so excited about winning an Oscar and fortunately it was presented by among others. Samuel jackson. Bring larks Samuel L Jackson. So there's there's this wonderful photo. You can see it on NPR dot org of Spike Lee. Leaping into the arms of Samuel Jackson because he's so excited about winning his Oscar that he gave a very impassioned speech in which he talked about a lot of the issues that he cares about and how urgent he feels the politics of the moment are the two thousand twenty presidential election is around the corner. All mobile is. Let's all be in the right side of history. Made the mate the mall toys between love Bertha's. Hey, let's do the right thing. Yeah. I think in some ways it felt like a career award. I don't know that. I mean, black klansman is not my favorite, Spike Lee movie. I think there are issues with that script. I mean, there are some of the same issues with historical revisionism that there are in other movies that were nominated. But that moment of just seeing Spike Lee be that happy was was delightful, and we should mention because we haven't yet that free solo which is the film about the guy who climbs up L capitan in Yosemite movie that we liked. I'm without ropes. Yeah. Exactly. That was the winner for a documentary feature. But yeah, I liked that film. I was happy about that. I didn't know as much about the shorts. But well, I mean there was one the one a terrific thing that you can watch on Netflix called period end of sentence which won best documentary short feature and those folks were really excited, and I'm glad that we got to see them and not have them be awarded during the commercials. Yeah. Crying because I'm on my period or anything. I can't believe the build about menstruation just won an Oscar. Well, and let's talk to about some of the things that happened during the awards ceremony. What did you think of the Queen opener? It's Queen now fronted by Adam Lambert, I'm aware of its work. Yeah. I mean people like people like those songs, right? I think that I mean what we've learned. I mean, I think that's what people love about that movie. So if you're not gonna have a host. Yeah, I guess you start with a big musical. And it seemed like the closest thing they had to hosts was that just after that performance. You got my Rudolph Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and apparently Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, you know, perfectly complemented here by myself are the only people who know how to host Ord ceremonies anymore. But I thought they were fun, right? We are not your hosts, but we're going to stand here a little too long. So that the people who get USA today tomorrow, we'll think that we host it. The ceremony came in at three hours and sixteen minutes. And there was all this talk going in about what they were gonna try to cut to keep the ceremony short. They were going to cut performances of the songs that fell by the wayside. They were going to shunt several of the categories into the commercials. People were furious that went to the wayside what they cut were the most comfortable things from the Oscars year after year after year, they cut the montages, and they cut the host doing bits about how long the Oscars. Alright and those two things can fall by the wayside absolutely forever. I think you could bring those same three women in to host every year make the show three hours and twenty minutes, and that's your Oscars. What you don't get. And I don't think it was missing per se. But what you don't show a have is somebody who is providing the tone, providing the energy. This was a pretty it was probably fine. But it was a pretty low energy night because you didn't have somebody in their puncture. Weighting it with anything or puncturing anything. It just sorta happened. And again, I'm I'm fine with it. But I do think if there was somebody there to just periodically appear and re energized that crowd, I think it would have gone over a bit better. I think my basic takeaways is I think you're gonna see a discussion about how to put together an Oscars telecast in the future. I think you see a little bit of a blueprint that they may follow going forward depending on the ratings. And I think you're gonna have more of a discussion about how green book wound up winning best picture. And I think there will be some soul-searching about that. Well, that brings us to the end of our Oscar wrap up thanks to all of you for being here you and thanks to you for listening.

Net hashtag without further ado our panel this week Mr Heavy set. I didn't hear any museum just have to fucking break the fourth while every time I gave you to second warning saying I'm fixing the soundboard stuff. We're GONNA fix an post but yet you gotta bring it up like your Pong like. Do you watch pro rest. Are you in a pro wrestling match and say Oh fuck it's fake punches and all this. You're supposed to work with the art you a professional aren't. Aren't you supposed to be understanding the fact that I threw that too in the pre show that don't fucking actually bring it up during the show trying to keep it somewhat professional. I have no idea what you're talking about. All right. CARP CARP is on the show as well. How you doing audio what now all WanNa? She wanted phrase that way but he after the disaster I have to deal with editing you sometimes to what hold on a second but but when you give me constructive criticism I listened to it accept it and say hey all work on it. Thanks for letting me know instead of Eden a fucking candy Bar Rapper break in the fourth wall and blowing my levels. I was opening opening in advent calendar. I received from one of the lovely women at work who decided to give us chocolate now. Can You please stop blowing the Mike Levels. Thank you all all right. I'm going to compose myself and stay as professionals. I can't for the rest of the show even on working with a bunch of amateurs guys. Let's talk about CINTA MIA this like couple month long journey of trying to find the cinema purchasing APP that works for him we we've seen all the issues with movie pass and now switched over to send me a talking about the fees last episodes but but a month or so so let's get some updates and there's been an article with an update of centimeter and they're actually mentioning a couple of improvements will mention them quickly and see if they're directly affecting heavyset and if we have any news on those extra fees so apparently according to send me a physical cards are coming back and they're more secure than ever. I didn't know they went away. That's news to me you will also now have your own dedicated cinema carless transaction okay so I'm guessing it was like a group card. If it was the digital card maybe heavy can take a note of that clarify. We made a conscious effort to hold on. If you had a digital card basically what happened was you would have a number generated for you. Went you win. You went to make the purchase of win. Say under every okay got it so you actually really get a dedicated. Even though it's not a physical cards at dedicated card number instead of having like a some kind of third party one time purchase card got it. They're making apparently conscious effort to eliminate ticket purchasing errors heavy set of you ever or had any errors. You just said like you don't check in the could have been an issue that you never had any problems but divide any like payment problems or anything like that. I hadn't had anything to after I actually had I think it was when we went to go see outbreaks outbreaks Internet. I spent a good our on and off trying to buy tickets with the the card number that was generated for me and it was always coming up a err err err err and then eventually after awhile it did go through all right good fine but cod that was annoying but I had that was the only time and I understand stuff. I guess is going to have issues as long as it's not a constant problem. I don't complain too much. They're saying more customer. Support fewer customer issues when you've got in touch with their support. Did you have problems contacting them or with delays. Only thing with the customer support is a lot of times. It's just through twitter which a not a huge fan of it's great sometimes but I don't know that's all the only thing that there is and I've heard that emails does not go to law and there's not really a number you call. They're also saying there's no switching APPs to purchase a ticket and you had mentioned that you have to go into the other APP. Get the transaction set up with the card number and then switch back so I think that's good that you don't have to switch back after cinemark. Is that fixed or is that still pending. I think that's still pending. I have not had that been able to work at where I'm just in one APP Ohka and finally so you can see how many tickets used for that month right in the APP. I didn't know that was missing either. I guess I mean you know if you only by three tickets you could probably keep track for yourself but would make sense that they'd put that in the APP. It's something that I I'm happy that they're going to add has been added to the APP yet. Everything was supposed to go into effect on the first so I mean still as a recording at the second so we'll see how all that plays out but I you know that's something I I'm looking forward to but at the same time I'm unlike a lot of people like for some people. It's you know from you know when you pay your bill or whenever you pay the feeds the next month like a lot of things are ours is goes on the first so I like automatically okay became the month end of the month three movies and I kinda did that on purpose and how about the whole thing with the little extra service fees you were mentioning the pre show that that's digital only S._o.. If you get that physical card you can have that problem has sent me a gun. I'm back to you. <hes> recently gone refunds. What do you think they stand? Have they changed their stance on it or like. Are they getting a lot of blowback from the Internet from what you've seen how many of those questions you want ask 'cause. Yes like five answer as many as you want. I figure I come out your rapid fire. They haven't really said anything my whole annoyance of it like it's fine like okay you have to pay these fees to cause the processing fee supposedly because of the card okay cool but have that to my membership like don't like well. There's no no no like I'm really paying because we do two tickets three times a month. It's a little over ten dollars a month like two hundred ten and eleven yeah so okay if I'm paying this every month just Ed ten dollars to my bill. I'm going to be fine with long as I'm paying it upfront. I'm fine 'cause there's somebody like well already. Pay This like well. I understand like if the different fee fine whatever. I don't think it's going away until we get a we get a physical physical card. I'm biting my teeth but at the same time like when we went to go see row Internet oh yeah I went and seen it in Three D. because if I'm GONNA have to pay this extra amount. I want to get my money's worth because we're allowed to go to three D. movies and that's something I Kinda WanNa. They keep doing if others three movie coming out that I WANNA see fine. I'll go see it because that makes the ticket value a little bit more worth it enough. I gotta pay that extra fee. It's now sweat off back. See Stomach on that physical card have gotten back to you for that. We were supposed to get everything like all. These changes were supposed to happen on the first of December in right now as a recording. It's the second so the first of December was on a Saturday so I wasn't expecting anything like that weekend so within the next week or so that's what I'm expecting stuff. Stop the happen and we're still getting since still getting the fees which dot com the fees come from that whole issue. I I have no issue with paying that those extra that extra 'cause like <hes> like a dollar eighty a ticket so it's like three sixty per and the eleven twenty seven twenty that we have to pay per month and if they would have just add that to the the subscription. I'll be fine. There's people out there that I know that complained that oh well well. We are already paid as much money a month <unk> this extra fee while I get extra fee but if I paid upfront you know there's a whole ticketing bug on going back. <hes> no matter how like this whole thing is was sending me. Oh it's not nearly as bad as what movie pass was towards the because I know people who are you don't want most people. I knew who had movie path. Don't have it anymore and like the big issue I felt like with them was the fact that there was a lot of movies that you couldn't see the weekend. They came out so that's something that I hated and there's also the fact of there would be times that you could go. Try to go see a movie and like they're like I had mentioned we went to go see the none and we woke up. You don't let that far for the movie theater movie pass basically said Hey. This is the movie you can go see so we you'll went to the movie Peter when straight there and all of a sudden that movie was off movie pass so cart. We don't have this kind of subscription service here. You are in corrects. We do have semi in Canada wet yet win. I don't know <hes> <hes> I thought I remember Phil saying something. During the movie I saw a few weeks ago with him but I vaguely passed over <hes> we have five different plants. WE HAVE TO UTAH. I've never heard of the. I'm blown away. I'm libertarian looking out right now. Well well it under the same sense movie pass was American type thing I want to say. Cinema is Australian so I do believe they are available in other countries. I never thought to look at Canada. The one thing you gotta realize heavy is that we'd never get this Kinda Shit. 'cause we're such a customized <unk> like we have the highest rated cell phone prices in the world oligopolies. A lot of government controlled shit. It's very annoying to to be a legal pot legally. It's a fucking anomaly this place so I absolutely shocked when you say sell on cinema dot com slash new dash plants. You have have classic one movie ticket per month at four ninety nine a month right now for Canada for Canada Fuck you. I can't believe now that's one hundred a U._S.. It shows Canadian on the website so the only thing I'm noticing as some of the smaller places aren't there like the neighborhoods that we normally go see a movie in downtown. Downtown is available. Wow Okay classic for four ninety nine a month one movie ticket per month now. It doesn't show any of the additional fees so I don't know classic three movie tickets for Months Eight Ninety nine a movie tickets or three double three addicts. I didn't click on anything else but I did. I do see so I'm GonNa look this up and if this is the case case I'm signing up after the podcast fucking review because I thought this none of this would never exist here and would in the future past present because we use <hes> we have like <hes> rewards program Rewards Arts Program from a company called Cineplex Cineplex says owns like ninety five percent of the theaters across Canada and you know if you watch line of Seven or eight movies you get one for free and that's pretty much all we have <hes> when you and they're also gives a small rebate on concessions but like that's it so if you tell me there's like a movie subscription service and all this. I'm really fucking interested and like I said after we get off the phone here <hes> well phone when the digital. How old are you all this man? If you listen to the last episode of all beer inside you can hear exactly. How old old school is I haven't? He has a landline still actually I. I Have Houma which is voice over I._P.. So I don't have an actual physical landline I haven't as it costs five dollars a month so the most the most popular option <hes> they're saying on the website is the three movie tickets per month at eight ninety nine right now. They also have a movie every day for twenty nine ninety nine a month and you get thirty movie tickets a month house. Our plans better than the U._S.. Plans then there's two elite plants which involve three D. N. I. Max okay so they that's the difference they get pairs. Andy can see any movie us. It would be standard DEF. Okay interesting. Yes yes oh there's three plans that are standard Def in two plans which give you three D.. Slash amax option check this out <hes> carb. I think we should join us. Fuck Yep. I mean it's <hes> it's pretty tempting. Hold on one of Oh. <hes> I mean there hasn't been much this month that I've been wanting to see but you know I regularly regularly go to three to four movies. That's it and I I WANNA get that physical card thing to if we can get it if candidate posted fucking Sean here's sings is the things that says it's completely cordless okay. We can't get the card. It's an apple. Only what's good in place. Yeah what's good though cineplex doesn't have any service charges in Canada so that's I'd have look into that. Okay Yeah <hes> <hes> I'm going to research more probably over the during the week myself because I go to so many so many movies I'm shocked. This is an option. I okay the other thing is generally you know myself in what Sukey might my movie date <hes> as I call them. We generally go to LaSalle. 'cause it's just easier. You know. He's got a kid. He's GonNa get down now if they could put lasalle into this plan on it'd be Walgreens <hes> working downtown the downtown theater off. I am not too far from nowhere near to working downtown anymore. I mean yeah might my case. It's convenient so yeah. I'M GONNA check this out. Check out the plans of we'll give you the Canadian update on on the next episode and obviously heavy. Let us know how it goes with the cards and stuff and if you're still happy with the service but yeah it seems to be working progress at least they're model makes a little more sense than the movie past one which to me just didn't make any sense ten. Ten Bucks for unlimited movies it was destined to fail it was interesting concept and it probably got a lot of people into the idea of movies subscription service so they led the way you know at their their detriment but now these that are companies are coming on with better business models Nelson. Hopefully it works out but I'm yeah I'M GONNA try to at the end of the show set up one of these subscriptions. I'll let you know how it goes all right our next our next story general mills. The Cereal Company is launching a serial monster cinematic universe. We know the idea <hes> of yet another cinematic universe sound stale especially after universals dark universe left a bad taste in everyone's mouth nother pun there but we are ready to dig in on the latest endeavor because it could be delicious <unk> pin number three general mills wants to launch new story with their cereal monster mascots and a wants you to pitch them your best idea so the only thing I find interesting here is that it's fan based and I don't know if you know it it depends how you look at it because you could say there too cheap to actually higher screenwriters or you make it interactive and in this day and age with US contacting companies directly through twitter and facebook and stuff. You're GONNA crowd source the best ideas it probably just pay either. Give you a bunch of free cereal or just get pay you whatever thousand bucks with a freer idea of but it you know it makes it cost effective in that sense and you bring the community and you get people into your product. I don't know Oh from necessarily huge fan of you. Know whatever I mean listen. We've seen crazier things you know he man was just a toy and they made an amazing eighties cartoon out of a toy pirates of the Caribbean was a fucking ride and Disney and they made a four five movie franchise out of it so it's not impossible that they can make cinematic universe add a serial characters. We've seen crazier stuff and why not you know you something. You're I would your I._P.. Other than selling cereals and it's good for for selling more cereal anyways sub you keep it within a reasonable budget and actually make some money fuck why not why wouldn't be probably fan. Watch it but you know it's GonNa target more of a kid audience carp. What is your thought of General Mills Getting into the movie game? Look battleship was made their stocks of attention movie. They made it emoji movie whatever I._P.. Exists at there and there's little to no create honestly there's very little creativity left out there right now and people pitching. It are just this S._N._l.. Had like a bit this week how it's like Netflix. We got so much stuff. It'll take you thirteen lifetimes in a row to watch everything. Here's here's an actual pitch meeting so there's this movie <hes> and the the characters name Audrey and the guy just starts throwing money Adler so it's it doesn't take much the fact that I'm somehow not writing movies. I'm damn near halfway retarded and I could probably do a better movie pitch. Most of these guys could be the new the new generals character card the luck in China whatever he's just be it'll be little balls for 'cause I'm Harry so now I mean his traficant cells so who knows but I won't be attending any <unk> unless they make a super dark version where count Chocula goes after I if they're gonNA go. I'll fuck this. Then heavy set one to watch more animated stuff than we are. A wh- what are your thoughts on this like General Mills. Their characters seemed cute cuddly in whatever you know there could be an audience for it. What do you think about the crowd participation in the them using their I._p.? I am appalled that you dare assume the movies that I go see every month. Why who's what would trigger you to to make that assumption submission about me of course news on giving him anyway <hes> I kinda would actually I'm actually a really huge fan of the Halloween movies like enough how the the house moves right love of them and I'm curious of what they would too but it's I don't think this is a money-making idea later and they've it's definitely along those lines of battleship of Emoji if this it was like a one time thing and it was like straight to d._V._d.? Fine but I don't know what they're good that kind of hesitant on it but I do love those characters and if they were to happen to throw in a cameo of yummy mummy and fruit group which are the discontinued wound monster cereal characters. I'd be happy I'm shocked that they're not going down like an animated TV show. Maybe it's just to saturated yet. Animated cartoons stuff seems to be where that would be the most received audience like instead of going through like making a big budget movie yeah. That's like to seventies to me for me that maybe I'm just too old fashioned all right. We've seen a bunch of movies these last couple of weeks. Let's get into it gives you are reviews are your views of the week every set an I have seen Bohemian rhapsody so let's start without heavy. We'll get your review. I I'll openly in that really a big queen fan nothing against them that you're going somewhere in to no one. There's no joke Luke with that when I'm just I didn't grow up on Queen so I don't really have much of an opinion on that so it went in this just I I know the music. I want to see what they do. I love a lot of other music `bio-pics and honestly I mean I was very entertained but one of my biggest things was I didn't get wrapped into it like I would. Uh some other movies like as much maybe not being the Queen Fan like like I said that's it's held me back from like maybe at the crying because like the little bit emotional I've no connection to any character or music in the in the movie cocoa but I've watched that movie twice and I've cried at the end because it was just probably better story telling but nonetheless which I did not really give it a rating on my <hes> my movie APP I give it a three and a half nothing like funneling bag because that's something that's half star away from four star and that's good in in my book. It's slightly slightly above average. <hes> there are obviously with 'em any movie like this. There are inaccuracies that you have to deal with right yeah. It's still not that bad. It is cool to go back and they go on Youtube and they'll tell you like all the historical inaccuracies and what they put into the movie to make it a better movie. It was still a good movie and I do often wonder how much better this movie would have been with Sasha Baron Cahoon on it because going Kony of Cahoon using ben Cahoon from the rats. No I'm thinking of American in anyway. I really think he would've killed the lead that they did get <hes> Rami Xiaomi Melik yeah did good but I think there's a little bit of a difference between the two and I think that would have been huge three point. Wow <hes> I'm gonNA DISAGREE WITH YOU ON A couple of point Sir I thought Rami Malik did a fantastic performance formation's. I I didn't say anything bad about US performance. I just said I think Sasha would have done better. You know what I before. I saw this movie I would have agreed with you and I was actually a bit shocked at the casting because the only thing I knew Rami Malik was was from I robot not I robot with Mister robot yet Mr Oh by. We'll Smith sorry about that. Mister robot US also in a over the T._v.. We show was grounded for life. There was a T._v.. Show is the next door neighbor. Okay I just know from Mister robot he plays more of an introvert coder and you know Freddie Mercury being very over the top flamboyant and all you know like amazing stage presence as an closed minded 'cause I didn't picture him in any other role. I didn't know if he could pull it off but the guys that fantastic actor and I thought he really took the portrayal of Freddie Merck like he just became Freddie Mercury and you know I'm like you have. I adore music `bio-pics so you know that's it was definitely. Did you say unlike me no. I said like you okay. I was like unlike bullshit. Now like you heavy. I Adore Music Biotechs and like you as well. I didn't have a huge upbringing on queen. I mean I knew the the main songs but I didn't know the story behind it. I didn't know too much about Freddie Mercury other than the you know the great guys are great singer didn't know but like how he had this jain over bite and he kept it because it helped his musical range. I didn't know the story behind the band. I didn't know how much influence the entire bad had had on writing the songs. 'cause you know I wonder if not the real quick. If the whole T- thing is true that's fucking crazy when I heard that I was like Oh wow like I've noticed that over by but if that was white ally I I think even if I had that issue and I couldn't sing. I'd keep because it's just like I have to more teeth than everybody else like fucking. Keep it. That's kind of goal. I think it's cool and I think it's a says something about the fact that he didn't mold himself to what everybody wanted him to be. The guy he was a trend setter especially in the seventies to be so flamboyant you know that Rachi seventies the be so flamboyant boy in the rock genre if you would have let me finish and finish can finish finish can finish Ross Perot throwback ninety two as you say every time I mean yeah. The guy was very unique. A fantastic aspect voice obviously so where was I going with this so yeah Rami molly fantastic <laughter> actor <hes> brought it to this role and just got me into what I liked about as they focused on the music the backstory of how the songs were made I mean they dabbled into the extravagant life that fray mercury had but they didn't go to fucking crazy and that's why the rumors I heard of why Sasha Beret Cohen he left the role. I don't know how after how long but he was originally signed up to do it but he wanted to focus more on the kind of the back life about Freddie Mercury where the band who was the the main driver of the story wanted to focus on the music and I actually agree now having seen the movie that they did that <hes> because yeah. I guess you WanNa know some of the backstory but for me the bio pic is to just bring that music to life on screen and we all know that movies and music have such a great relationship together so for me that I liked what what they did with it. <hes> and I was entertained the whole movie. I was like you know cool to see how that was all brought together and how the record industry thought they were fucking nuts for doing a six minute Song Bohemian rhapsody in the guy. You know the producers like all this never gonNA plan the radio. Nobody's nobody's GonNa ever know it. Queen is at the end of it. <hes> the guys are sitting there by himself and his studio look like an asshole and yeah well that we do know that character was made up and you obviously know who that was mired. Okay irony of pudding him ads that character where he could look straight dead in the camera in say nobody will ever sit in a car and listen to this whole song and our however he put it. It was basically tongue-in-cheek. Ha Ha Wayne's world that help the popular is the song in the what like why his death did but it didn't yeah I did also help it's true when I'll say but the inaccuracies and I'd like to get your thoughts on this. I'm okay with it because it's a fucking movie and I think that people get wait to ban out of shape about it. They expected to be like a documentary and we know that movies are GonNa be written to make more entertaining and you know I'm okay with that. I don't expect it to be an actual Shapur fucking factual like exact story about his life because it's going to be more entertaining the fuck around within a bit. I'm sure like his relationship with the the woman who tried to marry their forget her name but as I'm sure it didn't go down exactly like that and you know maybe he didn't <hes> patch things up with his dad just before the life eight concert. Here's the thing I don't care. It's a fucking movie. What are your thoughts on that heavy do you d? Do you think they need to be more factual. No no it's nobody's life is interesting to fit perfectly into a move very they have to to arrange things like I know they wanted to end the movie the way they did and Freddie Mercury did not get diagnosed us with H._I._V.. AIDS whenever until two years after live aid and there wasn't a break up in between a huge thing before they went to do live. They just got off tour. They just do it to tell Tori. Put those at least put the facts in there like an I know another two other facts I think of my head one is <hes> the band did not get upset that Freddie Mercury Wannabe Solo because there were two solo albums before Freddie Mercury so <hes> i Salaam by another two other band members and the band didn't form as conveniently as it showed in the movie because that's one of the things again they weren't going to tell you the story of say they told you the story that okay the original lead singer quit quit shortly thereafter Freddie Mercury walks up introduces himself to the ban and that <unk> as hey I can single like oh well. Arlene singer just left. Anything's really good performance up okay. You're our lead singer. No Oh he actually was friends with the ban before that wasn't it's just the tell me maybe a bit of a better story and they couldn't exactly tell those types with those details. which I'm perfectly fine with is just fun to find out like what it's like? I think the same thing with the cup of movies I agree like all the like this. This was the difference between the Comic Book and the movie because much iconic movies. You can't go out there with the whole scrubbing just the comic book because people people will exactly know the fucking ending and you want to entertain everybody yeah so we're on the same page carp. What do you think about these online fuck and what I would consider a troll or just fucking negative or just people like <unk> who are shitting on the fact that it's not completely factual? Don't realize that it's entertainment. It's fucking movie. I just don't see why they're ben out of shape about it. 'cause they're trolls. That's pretty much it. That's why I mean even South Park made fun of the trolls a couple years ago. I think even it was last year. Unfortunately the Internet has allowed people to have a creative voice who should never should have been given the fucking option to in the version so L. Yeah fuck him <hes> so yeah. I loved this movie. I it's interesting because I wouldn't say was my favorite of the year but I'm still giving it a five because I actually have nothing negative to say about it. It entertain the Hell Outta me. The actor is especially Rami. Malik performance was fantastic. I love the story but how the songs came together and you know it seems to me like the the two times you can rejuvenate. Singers career is unfortunately one when they pass away in two in the Bio pic happens that really connects with people in this case from what I understand. A lot of people are getting back into queen because of it and I think it's a cool thing so I give it a five five out of five so bad to say about it. Okay so what you're telling me. Will this be in your top five of the year. Possibly yeah yeah yeah so I give it a five <hes>. Let's go to will get carps. <hes> review of overlord go head. It was pretty fun. World War Two has Zombie j.j Abrams Flick Matt Actors. If you like j.j Abrams and yet likes Hamas and you like World War teased of it's perfect combination of all of it you know bad scientists trying to create the Uber soldiers and things like that. It's pretty over the top the World War Two stuff <hes> at the beginning unlike the opening plane seen that you've seen the trailer looked like it was intense that scene you could just imagine this is movies perspective and we all know World War Two really happen so imagine Alec Crazy was then. Definitely you want to check it out. There's some really the good stuff it just showed the Nazis in the worst possible being like filthy rapists and shit like that it was a fun movie and I highly recommend ego see it. There's nothing really over the scary about it so I think most people who would expect jump scares stuff doesn't really have anything so you could probably check it out. <hes> I give it a Florida five awesome all right overlord heavyset Ralph breaks the Internet the sequel to Reckitt Ralph. Why would you think I went to go see this movie? 'cause you mentioned you did uh-huh yes actually aggressive with me today heavy with millennial. You can't do that too heavy. I can't I'm offended. God You act like you had sex lately he did. He was taken after Freddie Mercury and he had fifteen men or do you did you see a trucker at a truck stop. You know what I met a truck stop. Let's do it winning Cleveland England Wrong Wrong Transition Fund note about that scene in the movie. Do you know the the guy who played the trucker is the like the new lead singer for Queen that is hilarious annoyed did not know that yeah that was one of the <unk> the a secret <unk> egrets locking the secret Easter eggs. That's a new tongue twister <hes> at least me yeah. That was something that I found all. That's actually that's that's as is the guy actually gay or I don't know criteria like okay. <hes> do you like men began leg bathrooms still the best cameo. That movie was Mike Myers anyway going back reckitt Ralph. This was like my top movie not that I was looking forward to all fall almost winter but I what I do with movies I have my checkpoints of like all right. This is the next movie I'm big movie. I'm looking forward to this is big movie. I'm looking forward to this was one of them and it's I've heard mixed. Reactions mixed reviews on this. I really really liked I actually I gave it a four to five and that's the exact same rating that I gave the original. I think if you like the original you should like this one. It does tell its own different story. They don't really leave it open for a sequel but at the same time the original didn't either they just wrote their own sequel if they ended here on fine but they they told a really good story about the friendship between Ralph and Vanilla be so if they bring it back for a third one fine so be it but if they don't I'm not gonNA cry about but good for two five. I love just their record off character her. If you get a chance to see this movie even you guys who don't really go see enemy to movies the best part of the movie. It's hands down my favorite house looking forward to it is the entire entire Disney scene where they go to the Disney website website and literally because there's so many Disney properties and so many different things a fall under that umbrella. It's liberty like Cameo East Ray everything in a row there is expected cameo in the movie and there's also like everything they do with the Disney. Princesses is great but just that whole segment is literally boom boom boom boom boom boom just so many great things you know. I think I'M GONNA check it out in the whole market. It's got some kind the internet and I did see the first record often like the nostalgia of the video game stuff so yeah you know I wouldn't say I'm the biggest animated movie Fan but the the odd one I will check out that this is actually going to be one. I'M GONNA check out on the whole market especially with that fortify review yeah that's great okay. Last review is going to be creed too. I saw cre- to with the PODCAST Charlie and Phil couple weeks ago all right so I'm gonNA give the early ratings are going to be a four out of five and this gets a really good rating on rotten tomatoes to the very very rarely you'll see the critics in the audience agree specially to a very close number. The human example Bohemian rhapsody got a sixty two percent from the critics and the ninety percent from the audience and usually when I see a higher rating for the audience like at significantly -nificant higher rating I'll go see it and I'll usually agree with the audience in yes in this case it was like eighty eight percent rotten tomatoes for both the critics and the audience and enjoying the first one having the style of rocky back in a scene Michael Jordan really really get into the role it just bringing it. The first time I was like okay. I'm going to check it out. I this one of four out of five really fun to stall jet tying into rocky four with Drago coming back that character Dolph Lundgren replaying Drago and of course rocky playing the mentor role so that was a lot of fun nostalgia. I'm Michael Jordan really shines in this role you see the evolution of the maturity of the character. The emotional scenes with the daughter were really great. The vulnerability of you know the character acting I mean just acting was a one not even to mention the shape he got into this role. I mean now with these. You really see the actors especially with dieting and I'm sure a lot of them do take enhancement drugs and stuff but whatever I mean just doing it to be an actor there. It's not like they're fighting the U._F._C. but they you see the dedication they have to these roles in the shape of Michael. Jordan had to get into two to play off this role. It just goes back to the stallone days as of just a bus dinner ass getting to amazing shape and it shows the dedication that he had listened. The story was playbook rocky. You know but I didn't care 'cause that's when I wanted going into. I wanted the nostalgia of of rocky four rocky for being my favorite <hes> I wanted to see Drago. Come back. I wanted to see the rocky in that dynamic and bringing back. You know this Kinda Russian bad ass fucking murdering character in a modern day format. That's what I wanted and it delivered exactly on that regard. The only negative I have on this movie is actually London playing Drago I found he played him way to human. If if that makes sense because if you see the original Drago in rocky four he plays them like a cold hearted almost like terminator via you know Schwarzenegger just like very small one liners and I know I understand Dan. They did it originally because his English wasn't that great. The thing is having more like a better acting Dolph Lundgren for this and showing a lot of emotion took me out of it because it's nostalgia this movie I wanted to see that old school drago bad ass and I find just showed way too much vulnerability throughout the entire movie for those who have seen it the ending. I understand why he did it but for the rest of the movie he shouldn't have shown any vulnerability the any motion whatsoever. I wanted that one dimensional drago so that's the only negative here 'cause the fight scenes. were fantastic. Okay a small little Chris one more small little krizan criticism is a kind of look like it was video game footage and correct me if I'm wrong if somebody knows this but it seemed like some of the fight scenes were C._G.. Guide and that took me out of it a bit. It's how they filmed fight scenes now like when I was an extra snake hey guys it's they c._G._i.. In the punches now so that they're not actually connecting. That's it's the same thing with walking dead. If you look real close there's green screen on sword and stuff like that so when she slicing the Zombie she's not actually killing these people in real life so that's that's what they do now to make it look realistic like attempt to make it look realistic but what I'd like to know is they don't mention Russia at all in this are barely anything about Russia this time yeah. They don't like rocking j.j j.j rocky solve the Cold War. That's I'd say rocky solve. The Cold War in eighty five saved the I saved the U._S.. Figure like Putin's all <unk> heaters ten million dollars don't mention Russia. No we'll know I mean the final fight. Scene is in Russia so they do talk about it but there is there's no political like you know and apparently from what I've heard he's like it's not even really mentioned like you know. This is the guy who murdered your dad in the eighties a little bit but there's yeah there's not them. It was more of like hip prove himself. I've I've heard there's a lot a plot holes like apparently creed one was so good that create you would have really had trouble keeping up with it and from what I've heard cre- to has had a lot of trouble keeping up with creed one listen. If you look at the reviews they disagree with that. Are they other plot holes. I didn't notice awesome. Maybe I just stabbed lower standards. I don't know I went in there expecting nostalgia and I got it and I was okay with it so that's and then from what I remember like at the end of the first creed rockies like dying of cancer Y- Yeah E. S. truth reversal for brain damage and yeah I mean I guess maybe they wanted to a couple more creates so that hole in the sweep that cats thing out of the rug out of the room in definitely dying of cancer. Let's just is not mention it for the rest of the series. Whatever but I mean I it's mostly comedic podcast on listening to other shading on it but to me if it would have been perfect opera I okay yes salons kind of a right winger there? He's he's all he's wanted. Trump's is buddy so I get it but it would have been perfect time to be like hey you know how this Russian thing existed in the eighties and it's coming back now. Maybe let's solve the new Cold War that's about to happen yeah totally creo bargain shades and I I mean you do here. You know e comes out they boom and actually chairman at the end so again that's but he doesn't do that. Big Speech or whatever but now create should have been like if I could play the human torch but then play kill monger and Black Panther then you can change change and you could be superhero and a marvel movie that we all WanNa be absolutely just break before winning easily fixed all of it exactly but you know what I mean again. More throwbacks like rocky had to really build up muscle and strength for fighting a big guy like that same thing happened with creed where as creed was more of like <hes> you know stick and move kind of guy he had to build that muscle net brute force and Rocky Bra. I mean he didn't train arena Russia or whatever but he did train very difficult environment and so you bring back that to like the whole training montages and the dowager that that was kind of cool but it was that the head that modern twist on it so that's what I liked about it and I want I I left. They're happy except for the little drago shipping that means that's just me nitpicking and people are probably the people who point out the plot holes are probably nitpicking but at the end of the day was it was a fun movie and dive the felt I left entertain so if you're a fan of any of the rocky movies you will enjoy it. I give it a four out of five <hes> believe that is all the reviews for this week that would be fake news. We view removes a month and I only review two movies. Well obviously didn't tell me that in the pre show but I think you were building our to our festival interruptions so heavy set what is Karp. I believe I said all three movies do recall my three movies that I mentioned. I unfortunately do not recall <hes> but you're earned. It might have been shopping then when you said it fine I mean I do believe he saw third movies so not to mention I do happen check into them on facebook and one of them was on Friday in the only haven't talked about in your remain one Mr Grinch yes you did mention it. You really are a he'll the <unk> good enough for you Mr Vocal <hes> I do concerts type in the perfect spot on grinch main reason why we went to see this movie the movie that Amanda wanted to go see this weekend did come out on the thirtieth in possession of Emily's. I don't Know Anna Grace Hannah Grace. I want to see that real bad. We wanted to go see it too but to issue number one. It's not at our local theater like our one or really close to but the other movies are that we really do like going to from time to time in North Canton is playing it we were we're having such a busy weekend. The only time we get to go on Friday the thirtieth November and it was like well. I want to use this last ticket up so let's go see the grinch so next month. We are planning to go see ah we already have our three movies. That's the possession movie she wants to go. See aquaman. I'm fine but the third movie of the month will be homes and Watson and I'm really looking forward to them so the grinch ch of the three movies how I can look at it. The original animated movie or animated short is good probably the best and no movie will ever be able to beat like the grinch we will never be able to be too because it's an my opinion so short I wanna say it's about forty five minutes and to cram everything that that movie had in it and they try to spread it out into a bigger format and try to make it work isn't an easy task and I think that's where the Jim Carey version really ashort on that and they did live action which isn't completely terrible and I get the three the effect of having the WHO's in the grinch animated is what weaned love of the grinch so c._G._i.. Computer animation still good still good. It holds up well to the original. Is it better or just as good. I don't know it's so hard to. I won't say it's just as good if but it's I don't feel like it's a too far follow way. Okay said the that is aware that movie works well. <hes> Bennett cumberbatch was great. Keenan Thomson has a has a role in the movie and you can even you can even tell by his voice the girl that they got to play Cindy. Lou who like vegetate character is really adorable and I think to take the movie of the cartoon and try to make it into a bigger movie. This one hit the heart and I gave it a four hundred five think the rating. I've been seeing our lot lower. I don't know what people are using to compare not to mention. I think this thing came out like the beginning of November. I get a movies WANNA. Come out like that but I think Christmas of you should be in December and I really enjoyed it but you know it will never beat the first. There's one but it did a lot better than Jim. Carrey went owned the soundtrack isn't too bad either awesome check out the grunge of your fan of Christmas movies or the grandeur animation or you hate Christmas or you hate Christmas Day. Go <hes> carpets on your radar right now for movies Bumblebee. Actually I WANNA say guy yeah. I WANNA see John Seen as a bad guy. Finally at least we can't give them and wrestling exactly homes in Watson is on my list as well in fact. There's not much man possession. I had a grace like already mentioned. Pardon me really wants to go see once upon a dead full. It's the P._G.. Thirteen version of deadpool but being told kind of like the Princess Bride Fred Savage surveys actually so I've already seen movie well why not see the P._G.. Thirteen princess bride version of deadpool almost want almost want us for the scenes with Fred savage. What about <hes> Spiderman into despite averse yes? I want to see it but I don't WanNa go alone and there's no abandonment issues with spiderman well. No I don't want to sit down at a cinema with a bunch of kids looking like the old man and do you want me to shoot some webs with me parking lot in the gas station I gotTa van with puppies and Kennedy I mean and then there's a couple of super cheesy horror movies at the beginning a Jill January. There's an actual escape room horror movie coming out for how campy I'm sure it's GONNA be. I have to go see it. Also I wanNA throw out just that whole so Christmas weekend. You have aquaman you have bumblebee. You have homes and Watson. If you're into it you have <hes> the movie vice the about those guys actually this movie i WanNa see and then that's that's I mean that's your bigger movies. As a couple other ones no cold war. I've seen the trailer four but not really up my alley Cold War with a I'm guessing I know what it is but who's in it right now. Is that once that I don't Ecole Arrigo. It's limited release though I thought I've seen something I could be wrong on studios. Wow Okay me have just such a crammed crammed weekend. We're going to go see one during the actual weekend and then Christmas Christmas is a Tuesday. We'll go see some movie on Tuesday. I like I like going to the movies on Thanksgiving and Christmas something I didn't do until like X.. Amount of years ago and I think it's kind of like pick a movie to to go see and if we go see anything I think we're going to do the weekend of Aquaman and then homes and Watson Abby something cool but you'll see on Christmas 'cause I always you have a conversation with man about. I'm like well. I don't know which one do I wanted to see homes and Watson quick because I really WanNa see it that weekend and then you know suffer through it on Christmas with Oklahoman or do I wanNA flip and go okay weekend. Let's Aquaman out of the way but then when Christmas comes all right homes Watson's going to be great. It's my turn into like a centimeter fucking segment because you have carpet. I sign up. It's going to be like winter our top three centimeter trying to get a sponsorship from them or something I don't know why are you going to get the two new ticket the eyeball to person deal. I might as well as if my girlfriend's lessening I'm not going Solo <hes>. I'M GONNA look into that. See what the fellow came out earlier this year through very true okay so my top three centimeter there there <hes> provided is sign up is going to be maybe once upon a dead Pool Mary No <hes> Home Watson I to that too and I'm GonNa see Vice Kes- Christian Bale does look good yeah it does look good and Christian Bale and Denzel on my favorite actors and Y'all go see anything with Christian Bale and the story actually looks interesting because we do know that you know he did have a significant role as the Vice President Dick Cheney and Bush was more of a puppet so you know obviously you know for cinematic again. We know it's not one hundred percent factual but I'm sure there's going to be a lot of interesting facts that we didn't know about especially but his back story and so yeah I'm curious to <hes> to see how cripples off because I've seen in the previews he nails the persona pretty well and he's good at changing. I don't know how he changes weights so fast and he's probably GonNa die of because of it but whatever yeah no. He's doing doing damage to his body. That's going to be beyond repair. I don't know how he does it all right so that's going to be us for that's going to be that's going to be US folks. THAT'S GOING TO BE S. That's going to be for us for this week. Carp actual start heavyset plugs final thoughts go ahead <hes> first and foremost God bless the two thousand Eighteen Grey Cup winning Calgary stampede irs. I'm looking forward to purchasing a championship shirt and hat but I'm trying to avoid the pain the hefty <hes> shipping charge to the United States so I'm waiting for them to get in in my only complaint about how many have the whole on. How much are they gonNA charge you well? I if I'm correct everything should be in Canadian dollars on the website and they're charging twenty five Canadian dollars. I get that ship for like five bucks. They still need to wait for them to have my size like I don't know the championship shirts GonNa go as high as as a three x but I can't do it to axe and just a little bit more comfy earner three x right. That's my biggest complaint on the A._F._l.. When the the Cleveland Cavaliers won the two thousand thousand sixteen N._B._A.? Championship bridges when any American Sports League team wins the championship. Those things are available immediately because they know the demand like literally. There's stores that are open at midnight when win whatever market you know those teams win. You can go in that night and pick up a championship like that. There's no all right. We got to come in and know that stuff is available immediately. Even immediately online I was actually upset. The CFL did not have that because I I kinda like that. Championship had a not really big fan of snapback but I'm like looks Kinda one so I'm really happy to for them to win. I completed a a perfect weaken sports. My Brown's one. My bears won the Buckeyes won. The stamps won the championship and on top of all that <hes> the packers lost shut lost in the wolverines lost against the Buckeyes so just great sports week all around for me. They got to be like little like added bonus and the funny thing was one year prior. The bears lost the browns lost and the stamps lost of re. I'm I'm tempted. I'm really tempted on buying a Jersey when we originally talked about me buying a personalized Stamps Jersey I forgot the conversion I forgot yeah. It's GONNA cost like two hundred dollars Canadian but it's GonNa cost like a hundred and fifty American. I'm like who that kind of want. Why Dude if it gets into your size that you want? <hes> let me know 'cause there's a way for us to ship. There's a third party that ships directly U.. S. P. S. and I think it back down for a bear inside. Yeah well that to you. You'd have to sleep on our couch but I mean while I mean we still got that Airbnb deal that you know the the movie soldered I fucking sketchy place you know we could still stay there so stay. Stay here too. I mean we well. We have one couch <unk> Plunder Air Matt sorry but if we're going the first night we're staying in Columbus at the burdock hotel. If we do go there again so there you know forget he. He's pretty adamant about the but you could just do. I can even this even thought of imagine you guys. Someone just brings it into America then ships and not for America yet but like I said we have a thing as a company called Chitchat because my brother sells a bunch of star wars figures figures and he ships a bunch of stuff to the U._S. and so he gets like a flat rate of five bucks or something so all I could worked at it with him where I could purchase a thing and then we'll ship it out to you. We can figure something Oh yeah I'll well all that you know because like I said I want the championship shirt the hat and then at some point probably be separate. I'm probably going to buy a stamp stirs. It comes to fuck it just kind of like represent them. I'm really happy for them anyway. You know pretty much just wrestling cheers. I don't know when this'll be coming out but December is month on wrestling chairs on having three people on to talk about the particular promotion in Tennessee that I've become friends with called southern underground pro and I already have the first episode recorded. I don't know 'cause I don't know what this'll be released but something I'm having fun helping support another company and you know get there weren't out. I'm probably going down to Tennessee in January to their next show. Just check it how great great great people so check that out on wrestling cheers and I mean that's pretty much it for me. They give you set carpeting going on. I'll beer inside episode thirty. One is already out thirty one and a half old school. Old Doesn't know what a movie is. <hes> should become account slayings. You know Tuesday Janet that we mentioned on the last episode we want your drunk stories so record accord or email me you're drunk stories and we'll share them live on air. <hes> as well I personally went on a beer venture this weekend in Plattsburg and spoke with the owner and head brewer at one of the Burris and he said he would love to be interviewed by me. I told him while our podcast is gently just a bunch drunk and Aso's and he said that sounds great. So how do you do now on the spot with a fucking record because I don't have a record. I didn't bring a recorder because I didn't know the owner is going to be there. Always have your equipment right heavy. Yeah Yeah I keep by equipment in the car and regular dealing whenever I go to shows I bring the batteries with that's the only difference nonetheless asks for myself I kinda Carpe medium and always beer inside dot com and one shell podcast network DOT COM or whatever the hell it is podcast Montreal Dot Com. There are four heavyset Carp Zule school saying thank you very much for listening you know that marvelous avalanche play with their toys comes the Spiderman Ville and everyone wanted to see onscreen onto they did and Parker but this time they can't even afford to put Spiderman in it then <hes> get ready for a gnarly sick tied movie.

Nerd Soup - Oscars Preview (2019)

"Hello, everybody. And welcome back to another episode of the nerd soup podcasts. And on today's episode. It's very special episode of the podcast. We've got no teddy just me. And Erin Bolivian Aaron the to monkey previewing the Oscars. Oscar Sunday, two thousand nineteen we're going through all of the major nominees. I'm starting with best documentary short foreign film in audited joke that was going to kill there in this preview. I was going to be like I was gonna have a fake commercial and be like when we got back. Oh, they're in a break. We said Courant should Winston mythography because of the whole they with the Oscars, but they took that away from me, and I'll never forgive them. Wasn't that funny? Probably not. But you know, he's sprinkle a few jokes throughout the episode in ads. You know, it makes you something special. Now, I don't even wanna do this anymore. I don't really like topics on my ice cream. No, I'm not a sprinkles guy. Just give me the ice. Give me the cream. Give me a spoon. Cone bite the cone suck from under. And we'll. Yeah. But now we've got a whole list of nominees. And obviously, if you're listening to this podcast, if you're Miller, if you're familiar with our channel, you're familiar with the Oscars, and you're probably anticipating the show, and it's it's fun. It's almost like Christmas for film nerds, we get to sit around make bets drinks alcohol. Complain on Twitter when your favorite movie doesn't win. That's my favorite. My favorite is making fun of people that complain about award show. But then go ahead and complaining about award shows myself, you do it a lot. Yes. I love it and Amy Adams is she now. Yes, she is nominated. Yeah. Well, we'll get to it. Yeah. We'll get there. I'm yeah. So I guess you guys can listen, I guess we'll we'll plug that to you can listen to us on itunes at the nerd, sue podcast soundcloud at the nerds who podcast and now Spotify and for our regular podcast, you can send in questions at nerd soup for you at gmaiLcom also Twitter nerd soup for you to tweet us nerds monkey nerd soup. Teddy Anthony j q Nash to now. He's like when he's not here. We don't blow them. No. What does he history earned the he gets paid and plugs? He's the fifth Beatle. Yeah. Assuming that we're the regular Beatles. I like that. Yeah. Okay. Well, I'm a cricket. So so I guess yeah. We'll start with best pitcher because that's the or do you want to go backwards backwards. Imagine the Oscars came on. And the best pitcher thou get ratings up there and people turn off right away while they usually do the first one that they always usually do is supporting actor. Yeah. So I think that's a good place to start. So for supporting actor. We have Mahershala Ali for the green book or just green book, Adam driver for black Landsman. Sam Elliott, a star is born Richard E grant can you ever forgive me and Sam Rockwell vice right off the bat Sam Rockwell honor to be nominated. You're not gonna win. No don't don't even know how he was nominated. When you look at some of the other Timothy shower. Yeah. Michael Jordan, Black Panther. Yeah. I mean, there are certainly especially shallow maze performance. He carried that movie will along with Seve corral, and what Rockwell was in for ten minutes. Couple funny scenes, but literally the Bush presidency Cheney was doing everything and yeah, just the face for a couple of minutes, maybe Adam occasions next level filmmaking, and that's just a metaphor. That's what the academy, and I know so yeah, you should have been nominated even though at the top said that he shouldn't have. Yeah. But he's not gonna win Richard E grant can you ever forgive me one of the only films that I haven't seen yet. You probably see it before Oscar Sunday, but we're recording this what is it December thirtieth? Yes. Right. So does he have a chance thirty Hughes? Fantastic. He's he doesn't have the hype surrounding it. But he was my favourite until I saw green book and her Shali he should win. It. I think he will win because that's always like the thing when you making predictions for the Oscars as always someone you think should win. But you can kind of get a sense of who is going to win. And I think he swept everything else. Golden Globes Baptists sag awards. I think he got all of that. So I would be shocked if he doesn't win, but you don't want to hear speech from Sarah malate code as the rocket did say, I want to take a nap on his moustache. So right or is always happened his mustache. And then you take the nap he talks to you. I just the whole it's a pleasant experience. Yeah. God I wish I could have that. He was usually good too. I think before I saw green book him in Richard E grant or probably my top two, but Marschall was fantastic. And it's funny because Sam Elliott's only in the movie for about maybe ten fifteen minutes is similar to Sam Rockwell, but his performances hitch you that much harder, and it's so important to the main character's arc, but Adam driver for black Landsman. That's a surprise for me when he was nominated. It's a movie that I I can honestly say I didn't even like it. But I thought he was the best part of that movie. And I think he's become an underrated actor because so many people. Associated him with Kylo Ren Orissa. Does that all the time? But if you look at this man's careers. Although if you look at this man's career all the smaller movies that he's been doing over the past couple of years. He's become one of the most fantastic actors working today. So to see him get this recognition. I don't think he'll win now. Because I don't think it is the best performance. I think it should go to Mahershala Ali. Yeah. And I like black land more than you did. But Adam driver, John Washington their chemistry together. It was fantastic. I think there were the driving force of the movie. So, yeah, it's a nice little notch in your belt nominated for an Academy Award, and I guess especially with Star Wars ending their wrapping film on episode nine. So kind of have that kind of add that to your resume going forward and breaking away from that going forward and he's done a really good job. I think Adrian Brodie should've taken this approach after he won his Oscar that he he's never the lead in an any of the movies that he starring in. He's always a great supporting character. And you're going to see him get those occasional lead roles. And maybe an eight twenty four or maybe blockbusters moving forward. But the way that he picks and chooses his movies and his directors. He's just really smart, and he's funny to begin lucky even the SNL skit he did when the Kylo Ren the uncover boss. He has good comedic chops to. So he can really do whatever he wants these versatile. So Marshall Ali is the actor who I think is going to win. And who I think should win is also Ali. Yeah. I mean, he's he's on another level, especially watching chewed attack the green book and his previous performances. He he's amazing. So I think this is pretty much here has he ward they probably have shipped the to his house. All right. So let's go to best supporting actress we have Amy Adams for vice marina, marina del. Marina data Rivi. Marina date. Vera, we have Berina data Areva for Roma Regina king. I'll just keep all those in. So people can get a look behind the curtain. I'm not perfect. Nobody is cold as the Rockies Regina king for if Beale street could talk ama- stone, the favourite and Rachel Weisz the favourite. Yes. So for this one. I think we stated it so many times, but Emma stone and Rachel Weisz. If there was some way that they could be co-winners that would be the perfect outcome for me. But I think this might be the most stand category because even going into vice I didn't expect much out of Amy Adams playing who is at Lynn Lynch Lynch Cheney. I can't Lynn Liz, all them are mixed up. I didn't expect much, but she was really great in that role. And you know, obviously, marina day to for Romana y went back to it. I should should've just ignored her. They're all great, Regina king for Beal streaky talk. I don't know. It's probably gets us. I think it's the best category. I think Regina kings the favor right now the betting favourite. She won the. Golden globe. It. Yeah. John's got kicked in the teeth to budget wellin- beat. Oh, yeah. The Knicks game. I did so talking and moving dodging she didn't get nominated for the sag, which is weird. And I think Rachel vice one for the BAFTA Rachel vice. I think it's yeah. I heard that I'm using the it makes me sound like, I know something you don't and I kind of like that who's your favorite composer, Richard Wagner. I don't get that joke. I'm just gonna last and make you feel better about yourself. You know, if you're around the nerd soup podcast for awhile. You know, big Amy Adams guy I wanted to win. But I think I think I'm a stone should win even though she's not going to. And I think Regina king will win. I think especially for the favorite. I think those two will split Rachel vice end, Emma stone. And so I don't think any of them went. So I think would Gina will win. And her performance is great to. I think we talked about to how it's another supporting role where she's not in the movie a whole lot, which leaves a lasting impact. After you leave the theater where especially with the favourite how they all three of them just shit like came together and really the driving force of the movie. So it's very different performances as far as screen time. And what they brought to the movie, but I think Gina can will win. Yeah. I think revenge vice was probably my favorite performance out of the five. But I don't think she's going to win because. Emma, stone and revenge or going to split it. I would like to see. Marina MD t from Roma tissue. So I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go out on a limb here, and because when you go with the betting odds, I see it all the time somebody there's always one upset, and I think this is a category where the upset can happen. So I'm gonna go. Mt. D for MD t for Roma I wanna see but Amy Adams either. Now six times she's been nominated. She got to get one and I want so I want me Adams. I think Emma stone should but Regina king. Will I think revenge vice should win? But I think who will win is an TD. Okay. All right. So let's go to best director here. We have Spike Lee for black clansmen. We have the director for Cold War Powell Powell Ascii. Yeah. I think I did that right, right? Yeah. Okay. Your goes length the most for the favorite that. I mean, he's my boy. So I knew that one pretty well Afonso Koran for Roma and Adam McKay for vice I think obviously Adam McKay, I don't think he belongs there because I've said this before I don't think vice should be nominated for anything. But. Best actor for Christian bale. So I don't think he's going to win. I don't think Yorgos laugh the most is going to win even though he's probably the one that I want to win out of these five. I didn't see Cold War because you backed out last minute. I didn't back change time last minute. Well, you know, you got to adapt. You know me. My schedule is very fluid constantly moving on the move. I'm doing things and you're not you're just like oh shit. I didn't realize I was three o'clock. I'll push it back the five. Yup. That's actually how well it went slightly black linesmen. Once again, I don't think he deserves to be nominated. So I think Courant should win it. And I think he will win it. Yeah. I think I think he's the biggest favor at any category right now for him for director. So I agree with that Roma was just the technical masterpiece. And you talked about the what's the lead actresses name. Forgot really. Yeah. Oh. I thought you were talking about the supporting actor now Yuliya appreciative. Yeah. Not one. I know. Yeah. Rolls off the town. She was fucking. She was fantastic. And that's what people kind of under eight that directors. I know to get these people to act I, but it's a first time actor, you know, she's not an established star or she's a relatively unknown. So to get that, performance and. I don't know just a camera work, and what he was able to do was mesmerizing at times, and from purely I know some people thought the movie might be boring, but from a director standpoint, I think it's not even close yet. Even though you're goes sil- of the favourite, but any any other year, I think he would got it. But I don't think so I think I might have contradicted myself saying that your goes should win it. I'm gonna change my mind. I think Rancho winning because people. Oh, teddy always asked me. He's like what's the rule? You said shouldn't win for Koran. I don't even know who I am anymore. Teddy always asked me what's the role of the director. And I say, you know, he's got a hand in everything. But with Roma he literally had a hand in everything. Dams of writing the script cinematographer director getting a first time actor to give that type of performance. So yeah, I I'd like to see him when it I think he's going to win it and these guys man gamble del Toro Courant in a re to they're just fucking incredible to have three best friends to be three the greatest directors. Living today. What are the odds? It's like me you and Ted except we all hate each other. And none of us are particularly as good as they are. But but we're friends so hot Tout's like, we're the podcast podcast version of them. Probably still not because because we're not that popular. No. I think I think we're great. But like an eye tune. So I think we may like the top one fifty twice. So really twice. Yeah. Absolutely. She not bad. No. All right. Yeah. So let's go for best animated feature here. I think that's a good category. Nice little fun. One incredible to Brad bird. Isla? Dogs was Anderson Mirai memorial hosts soda Ralph breaks, the internet a bunch of people fairly written L. No rich more Phil Johnston. All you, don't like Ralph breaks the internet. It's such a weird one though in their Spiderman into the spider verse Bopper Shetty, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman have you seen the promotion or the campaigning that just doing for Ralph breaks the internet, and then people just spam into this. Spiderman into the spider verse gifts. It's awesome. Yeah. I love it. I'll know incredible too. That's the one that promoted. Well, yeah. Yes. Incredible stew. They've got to and forgot all about that movie. I remember to the raccoons baby. And that's it. You know what? Incredible stew not greet. I lowered it. I think I gave it like a in the eighths. And when I went to go, revisit everything and like, all right last minute changes. I fucking drop that down guy. Go six out of ten. Hoof and the first one to me is nine point five at a ten. It is it's very unforgettable. And that's the worst thing a movie conducts very forgettable. Yeah. Yeah. It's very forgetful. And that's the worst thing movie can be so I mean, I think both of us want Spiderman into the spot into the spider verse to win. I don't know if we think it has a chance it definitely has a chance like one out of five marshal Ali, I think has been sweep and everything else has been winning all the other. So I'm pretty sure maybe one or two here and there, but. For some listen new Oscars right there, kind of embracing the comic book movie. So I think it'll get done earlier in the year. I thought I'll dogs. This would be the perfect I Oscars animated movie to win. I would say it should go to spider verse. But I think I'll dogs will win that was my prediction earlier, but I the more closer getting I think spider versus going to win. It should win too. All right. Let's go to cinematography. We have Cold War. Lucas Zoll the favourite Robbie Ryan never look away. Caleb Denel Roma? Alfonso Koran a star is born Matthew liba teak. I mean, Roma right? Yeah. We talked about it a lot. How Khurana is able to what he was able to do with that cabin pans and all that come on get out of here fella. You're a fly in the walls witnessing this very candid very real story unfolds. You you didn't feel like you were watching movie felt like you were just watching real life, and that's all the credit in the world to him. And what is he was able to do out of liked who is the favourite? Nathan. What was it? Nathan. I'll be Ryan Robbie Ryan was there. Nathan in there. No. Oh. I think that was shot extremely well to especially with the fish looks. Yeah. Fish. Yeah. It was a big fan of that. But I think it should go to Koran and we'll go to Koran. It's awesome. If he gets best director, and we'll talk about best pitcher. But if he gets best director and best in Matata for that's got. It's to be a first. So that's Oscar history. These guys are just constantly making history. It's ridiculous. I love the story to that Lubetzky was supposed to shoot it. And he was like, oh, well, oh, I can't make it for those couple of months and of those like all right? I'll shoot it. It's like, okay. Let me replace the arguably the greatest cinematographer of all time with myself talk about a weird flex not even a weird flex just Affleck's. Yeah. Just a casual flex. It's amazing. What these guys are doing? They're such an awesome fan day. Sue you ever seen the video of when game does Horo one last year, and there's people in the streets of the cutout Oscars, and like a big Oscar statue, and now you're going and del Toro cutouts. That's awesome. Yeah. It's like an NBA game almost. Yeah. I was gonna I'm trying to do that for me Adams. But no one will come to my meet up. No. Yeah. Pumpkin pie. That's what you've got to offer mo- people. Come. If you tell them punch, and pack. All right. Let's go to lead. Actress now, let's are with lead actor actually lead actor this is another stack category we have Christian bale for vice Bradley Cooper stars born Willem Dafoe at eternity skate Rami Malik bohemian rhapsody and Vigo Mortenson green book did not see add attorneys gay. Did you see that? No miss that one. I like me some Willem Dafoe. Yeah. And back to back. He was nominated for best supporting actor last year for the Florida project, which was a great film. So this is something that I definitely need to see before Oscar Sunday. I probably should've watched it before we recorded this video. But this is this is going to be close, even though I think it's going to be bale, and I wanted to be bale Rami Malik. He's got a shot. He's got a fighting shot. Oh, no. He's been I think has more than I think he's the favourite. I agree with you, though bail was fantastic. And I felt like as Malik been winning. Yeah. Malik be when you were watching bohemian rhapsody, and I think the best part of the movie besides the the musical sequences was his reforms. Did I think he was, Freddie? Mercury into think. He was ramming Malik doing, Freddie. Mercury impression Feis on like that stick Cheney. Yeah. I guess what you're saying. I know what you're saying. And it's a fair point. And you know, what I think it's a point that I also agree with, but I don't mind it because I got lost enough in the performance where there were times where that's mister robot acting like, Freddie, Mercury the difference. But he also had the advantage of the makeup. Yes. And the difference between he had the teeth. You know, no not. Well, yeah. He had the teeth Booker bills. A lot of it is his performance, and it was similar to Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill the makeup the hair makeup, which is probably going to win for vice you would think right. The more reflect onto to Gary Oldman Shalman should've worn. I don't agree with that. You cannot reason with a tiger. Ahead mouth subpeona Oldman. Wow. That's what he did. Whatever double entendre right there old, man. Oldman. Like that. That's the rap genius. When you look at you, click on the the lyric and tells you go. Yeah. That's what that means. Oh shit. That's always the best to when you have heard the same song over and over again for years, and you finally get it. I had that the other day with touch the sky Connie Lupe fiasco when he was like Lupe steel like lupin, the third you said this before and podcast, and it wasn't a couple of weeks ago. It was like last year. It was actually last year. Yes. Couple months ago. Okay. But it's still such a great story because that line still to this day looping the third and Louisiana's third holy shit. That's a fucking bar galaxy brain the meme, yes, that's twin peaks part eight nuclear explosion, so Christian bale gave the better performance in Rami Malik because yes, he does lose himself in the role. And I think he had some sort of advantage. I mean, he not some sort of advantage. He had an advantage with hair and makeup. I think too it kind of gets the performance gets losses. Freddie. Mercury. He is such a. Recognizable. And you know, Freddie, Mercury before even seeing this movie. I feel like I never ever really seen dick. I never like experienced Dick Cheney never watched him and ever seen him talk. So I guess what? Some of the first time I've seen this movie. Like, oh, it's easier for me to be like, oh, that's Dick Cheney rather than, Freddie. Mercury. Who I know who he was. And I can kind of pick and choose like, oh, that's kind of different where we're vice. I'm like, oh, this is this is Dick Cheney. I don't think Cooper it. Wasn't. It wasn't until after where I was watching like actual footage of Chania my go. Okay. Wow. It's pretty pretty close. You'll think Cooper's gotta shot. Did you see that Sean Penn op-ed? No, what was that? He was running a an op-ed about how the performance deserves more recognition. This boy Penn is such a weirdo. The big, Bradley Cooper guys. A big, Bradley Cooper, Hugo Chavez guy. He was so good too. And that's the thing too. I saw another post. It was like comparing Ramaema Malik Bradley Cooper, like probably Cooper learned to sing. He learned to play the guitar show him playing guitar on on the screen. That's him. He learned all these things. Open wide. He kind of transformed into this other guy. It's I don't know when you were watching that. Did you think that was Bradley Cooper? Did you think that was Bradley Cooper playing another guy? I I think he was down Jackson mean the. Oh, okay. That was his name. Yeah. Right. He's on a real person. No popular contrary. Teddy's belief say contrary to popular belief. But no one thought that except for teddy. So the thing is though I say that I think Malik has a shot. And obviously, he's the favourite because I haven't been keeping up with anything. I haven't slept in five days. So the thing is I think the bail performance is not significantly better. But there's a gap there where I don't think Malik is as close as everybody else. I think bail should be the clear favourite. I just think it's I tweeted the other day that I think Christian bells a better actor than Daniel day Lewis the tree. Check to take a look at the light. You what's a hundred take that? Or when I said Lord is better than the Beatles. That was that wasn't a take now. Yeah. It was that was just you. I dunno trying to start a war or something. Now. It'd be thinking out loud. It's more of a joke. But I still stand by it. No. Because that that takes we we all know that you don't believe it. That's the thing. It's such a ridiculous. It's so ridiculous. Little there. There's there's are flat authors. And we know that you're not that stupid. Well, I WI Carr earing listen to him speak. You really great points. Yeah. So I think bail should win. I think what about Vigo. Hey, what you never had a sandwich. Doc, you could walk down the street and five ten Italian guys who can do that performance ever. Where's he from ago? No. Yeah. He's good. And lord. He was good. He was good. Hey. Like that. Teddy. No, he was literally playing teddy. But now when you were watching that did you think that was Vigo Mortenson, or did you think that was teddy? Why are you taking that solo? Steady. Right. Damn cold world. So you're predicting Rammie. Yes. I'm predicting bail. I think bail should. I think bail showed and will. Yeah. I think that might be the upset. They might be too. Big upsets, according to Libya. All right. So let's go to the big one ear out lead. Actress. All right. Let's go to lead. Actress here, we have you. Lisa apprecia- for Roma. Glenn Close for the wife. Olivia Colman for the favourite lady Gaga, a star is born and Melissa McCarthy can you ever? Forgive me. Most underrated performance of the year. She was so good haven't seen. It is it on Amazon prime. Yes. Go watch it tonight. So great movie to actually my just watch my hero academia, but she was good, right? Yes. Fantastic. And I guess I might watch ocean waves. No, one cares. That is true. I think I don't know if this has anything to do with it. But she was in two pretty bad movies this year most McCarthy, and I don't think that should well, I think Halle Berry won the Oscar and. Yeah. On the the Razzie Santa book, Sandra. Bullock, sandra. Bullock saints. That will matter. I think she's not getting a lot of bugs, though, we'll public opinion too. Right. When I don't think she's respected as a dramatic actor, and she's not really respected as a comedic actor. I like it was a perfect blend soon this movie perfect blend a comedy and dramatic acting. I think she was my favorite performance of the year. Olivia Coleman, actually. But yes, so she's not going to win. I think she's like the the bottom has the worst odds to win. I think it's really between Glenn Close and Olivia Colman. That's another movie that I have not seen the wife. So you think link close what about lady Gaga, you're forgetting about the guy that movie lost all its momentum. Yeah. Did. Everyone. I saw what happened. Is trying to build up again. He's the momentum for stars worn like the rock. If there was leading the short everyone would have been on board. That would have been really weird the raw fish is really into storage born. Or if he's starred in it as Jackson main that would have been even weirder. But I thought she was the I you know, what I think lady Gaga should win. It. I still think that's the best performance for me. But when we closed between earn Coleman when that first came out two as Gaga fit a win. Actress Bradley Cooper, actor director and SARS born is gonna win best pitcher right now. It's like, you know, it might get it will get that song. You know? That's nice. That's an little Elmer shell then girl. I I think a was gonna win. And I think she should win as well. All right, cool. I'll take your word for it. Yeah. Well, this is what we're doing here at all, right? Let's go to the big daddy of Oscar nominations and awards. Best pitcher got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, the favourite green book Roma stars born vice? There's always usually a clear favourite for best pitcher this year. I feel like there is a one. Can you imagine? If Black Panther gets it is there a shot that Black Panthers winning this award. No. But I would want it to just like scroll through Twitter that in bohemian rhapsody Twitter would explode. I kind of I'm rooting for bohemian rhapsody more. But there's there's too much stink on that movie. And it was never good enough. To win wasn't good enough. I better than bohemian rhapsody movie light years better. Yeah. I think I don't know. Yeah. Pulling the wraps. That's still boggles my mind and still haunts my fucking dreams. I hear me. Well, you singing halts Madria. No, no. When I hear it comes up on my shuffle on my. Get a little chill terrible. They've ruined. That's song for you forever. Yes. And you've ruined it for so many other people I think I might have done the favor thing. 'cause I was you know, so bad now when they hear the good version like oh my God. It's even better in. There is green book. You don't think green books got a shot? That's such a that's another one. Where critical clam it's right up there. I think as far as one of the favorites to win, but I feel like the public opinion in that movie is so in the dumps what public opinion is done to green book. It's the same thing that they did to three billboards three billboards outside ebbing, Missouri. It's like a little weird. You know, like, I there were problems with green book, and I can understand the criticisms I had the criticisms going in when I didn't even see it. But people take it a little bit too far it a vacuum. I think it's a very very good movie and the vacuum. I think I gave it like mid eights or something. But the problem with it is. Yeah. No not. But when you leave move, yes. After the movie too when I reflected on it. And I saw the complaints that we're out there. And I read up on how the script that was that was the main thing. Right. A lot of this didn't happen. Yeah. So is this guy son kind of making putting these things into the movie that actually didn't happen because there was a true story in these things happen. I'm like, well, what are you gonna do? That's what you story. But when you fabricate that aspect of the film, then I can understand criticisms but in the vacuum. What wall is in theater? I had a good time and said I thought it was it was funny. And I liked the story Mersch, always performance and Vigo Mortenson were all great. So. What about a star is born you think that's got a shot. No, no, all lameta wost. Vice definitely not no vice I think. Was going to rank the bottom ones bohemian rhapsody. Vice? The those who probably are the least likely to win. So who's your favorite here? I think the favorite should win. I've like that. Sounds like that. It's we wish you didn't do that. I think it's the best over the year. It was nine number one and experience not nominated. No, that's weird. Yeah. That's very unfortunate for you and your reputation. Bash yourself and your number one movies are never nominated now. And I think. We'll see if detected Beka chew gets in next year Roma will win I hope Roma wins because I love Roma. That was my top six. I think it was number six or number five maybe might have been number four need to go back and watch that video not my best video. I was kinda struggling there. What my top ten movies of the year. Yes. For some reason. I was trying to meet the deadline of finishing it before two thousand eighteen ended. Bad decision. I gave a review. Yeah. But you were wasted metro. I dunno you when you get wasted. You get nice, and I'm just like stay away from me the worst right with your compliments. Disgusting gross black klansman. No way. That's I I'm not watching the show. I'm not watching the Oscars. No, no. I think last year there was such a better group of a best picture nominees. This one's very top. Heavy. I think it's the favorite Rome on pretty much everything else. Right stars born. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe those those top three year, but the Oscars look at that. If we get everyone, right? And what do we win we win something? Should we give something to somebody else? No. I kind of want the easy route. I said all the favorites will win. So that's like, you can't blame eights. I'm not the one that's wrong. You don't. I'm really looking forward to March madness. That's I'm basically teddy. When it comes to that. I don't watch college basketball all year, but I fill out my fucking bracket. Like, I'm Jay Bilas. I showed outsmart yourself like it's kind of like you when you said, which who's the underdog you pick to win in supporting actress, I picked the Roma factor. Yes. Mt. D, And it's like when you pick Kentucky's gonna lose around to to Florida State University. Yeah. Yeah. That's see that you put you pick. There's no way. Wisconsin's beaten Florida Gulf Coast their thirteenth overall. I Don I dislike the he's like them as the thirteenth sif. That's there's always I want team in like, you think I got it right here. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Then they'll lose a lead eight they're not gonna go that far. Exactly. But then they go to the final four, George Mason. We should do a podcast on that March madness podcasts. I think our subscribers would not like that at all. Won't unsubscribe joking. That was me. No love you. Love, you know, subscribers not you was also talking to. I didn't think you were saying that you loved me. You. But the fact that you had to qualify that you weren't. Makes me think that you might love me. Why don't want you to get this way the wrong idea? Like, oh, he loves me. How did this podcast with this? This is this is so weird talking to leading every video right now. I'm doing it right now. Our guys, thanks for listening subscribed. Like share enjoy the Oscars enjoyed life. You know, you only get one. We think some people think that there's one forever. You see that video of those going viral litters house smaller compared to everything else in the galaxy. I was like nothing I was actually liberated now. Nothing. I do matters. Oh, yeah. That's what I wake up every day. And I feel stress and I tell myself. Oh, wait. None of this people are like feeling depressed. Like, oh, nothing. Nothing. I do matters. I'm like nothing. I do matters. Yeah. Yeah. No, taffy, do whatever I want skipping down the streets. Yeah. No. But that actually makes me very depressed. It's very very sad. When. My existential dread is literally destroying my psyche. All right, guys. See you next time.

Reel Rock: Bohemian Rhapsody

"Hi, I'm Robert Hilburn. And you're listening to rock and roll archaeology have a great day. DIY and how studios presents? Just feel real off with Andy Kaye. Part of the rock and roll archaeology network of podcasts to ten does. That mean, it's louder is any louder will is one using Jalen. Culture. Technology. And rock n roll. Window now on with the show. This next podcast is dedicated only to the beautiful people out there that means all of you. Welcome to real rock. I'm your host rock and roll Reverend Andy king and today, we'll be discussing the twenty eighteen film bohemian rhapsody, starring Rami Mallett. I will be discussing various points of the film, so considered this your spoiler. Warning. You can view the film now in theaters in please go see the movie 'cause if more people go see it, we get more bio pics and good or bad rock and roll is always a good thing. Some of the questions we'll be answering today are can Malik escape the bio pic imitation curse. What the fuck crawled up borat sass and finally can film with this bad of a production history. Be redeemed. I'm your host the revenue to king, and this is real rock bohemian rhapsody. Style. Are you afraid of? Anyway, pretending to be someone. You're not. No one will play plea. Fancy dress. I looked like an angry. It you've got to make an impression. So tell me makes Quaid any different from all of the wannabe Rockstars. I me tell you what it is from St.. We're for misfits don't belong together. Thank for other misfits. The outcast right in the back of the room. Pretty sure they don't belong. We belong to them. Now, the family names not good enough for you change the legally looking back. We want to do something different. It's what goes we constantly repeat ourselves. No, we can do better. Could you tell us about the room is consenting sexuality Queen cannot last? You don't make decisions for the fire. Your life is going comparing difficult. Family. Even. Everything. Two. It's an experience. Love tragedy. Joy, something people would feel belongs to them. Rock and roll is full of pretenders at any point in its history. You can throw a dart and hit six wannabes that lacked it I just threw one I hit check Kroger audiences want to be entertained, and we wanna feel we wanna be enraptured by performance and transported to a musical. Nirvana. The frontman is largely responsible for that. You know, what I think Jason Lee in the film almost famous put it best. Look, I work as hard or harder than anybody on that stage. You know, what I do I connect I get people off. I look for the one guy who isn't getting off. And I'm making get off actually that you can print, of course, charisma and talent is natural. And not learned no one exemplifies that more than Freddie, Mercury even through the filter of history and on a screen. Mercury. Command your attention. For example. My daughter jet will literally stop whatever she's doing if Queen comes on TV as the parent of a toddler anytime. You have something that keeps them quiet if for only a few moments, it's a godsend, of course to the rock and roll world. Freddie was a godsend no matter if you're young or old uninitiated or a seasoned rock and roll archaeologist top or bottom, Freddie, has it. His story needs to be told and queens music needs to be exposed to everyone. So a movie seems like a great fit. Now, Queen by OPEC had been rumored since the nineties, but nothing ever substantial seemed to come from it in September two thousand ten Brian May made the official announcement to the BBC that in fact, they were making a film, and they had cast Sasa baron Cohen to play, Freddie, if you don't know Cohen is the madman behind the borat character. And all around performance are genius. Here's a clip from the G show. Whereas character Ali g interviews the great gore Vidal, an amazing guy. You wait just a story and a writer, and a speaker was also a world famous hairstylist. So let's just a couple of questions about that. That's the soon that's not me. But that's what you go onto as well that somebody else, I know him too. All right. So nice, man. These next questions may make a little bit less sense despair with me. So if you cut any first lady's hair, which one. No, I've never cut any here. Let's assume you burn Cohen. Sure. Looks a lot like mercury. And I have a feeling that this film was to be his coming out party as a great actor. Unfortunately, his vision and queens vision, we're not maiden heaven. Cohen appearing on the Howard Stern show explains. My first meeting I should've never carried on because a member of the band. I wanted to say who said. Say hit. He said, you know, this is such a great movie because it's such an amazing thing happens in the middle of the movie what happens in the middle of the movie because you know, Freddie, dive. All right. So you mean, it's a bit like Pulp Fiction, you know, the end is the meadow in the middle of the that's really. That's all right. That's interesting. I never thought about I guess. Oh, no, maybe. What happens in the second half of the movie, he said, well, you know, we see how the band carries on from strength. Not one person is going to see a movie. The lead character eight and then you carry on just the craziest. Guys, we've got to carry out. He's right. No one wants to see that. No one wants to see a film about Queen carrying on after Freddie's dead. I mean, they're all very talented and have a great story their own, but you can't really compete with FREDDY when you have a front man as affected as he was no one can fill those shoes. Adam Lambert, no matter how talented they are out of Lambert you become pretenders to the throne. Something will always be missing. Adam Lambert, and I'm really glad someone talked them out of that version of the film. But the show must go on an English actor been Wishaw was chosen to play mercury wish show. Best known for playing Q in the Daniel Craig bond films left this movie seven months in citing scripting problems finally in twenty sixteen Rami Malik of mister robot fame was selected to play mercury. I thoroughly have enjoyed Malik on mister robot. But when he was originally cast, I was kind of worried that his subtle style wouldn't translate to the flamboyance of mercury. How did he do? We'll get there. Bryan, mate thought. He did a great job. Also, the guy who's playing, Freddie. He's mister robot. He's great. You know, he has the presence of Freddie, he's going to suspend. Everybody's these belief. I think people are going to see him on screen and just relief. Totally these Malik. He's called a revolving door for lead actors is never a good sign for production. When the director's change out. It's an. Even worse sign an oboe. Does this film have a director problem first Dexter Fletcher, mostly known as an actor was chosen? Yeah. Hey, dropped out creative differences. Sound familiar? Bryan singer was then chosen to direct I'm conflicted about singers work because I like a lot of it at pupil, the usual suspects, some of the X men movies are all right, but I'm still super pissed about superman returns, putting his work aside. He's also allegedly a sexual predator. So you know, he's a piece of shit allegedly with allegations against him piling up. He began to be a nuisance onset not showing up arguing with people. So FOX fired his ass. Dexter Fletcher came back and finished the principal shots and overseeing postproduction that's a lot of drama for this production and is never a good sign. But it's not exactly a kiss of death checkup. His drew was devised that had a fuck up production and not film is amazing. But what about this one? Will it survive the hill it's been through? We'll find out as the Rev takes a trip to the movies. This is my best friend Garfield high. We'll go the little bohemian rhapsody, gentlemen. Good. Call. I see. What? Blues. Be. On. And we're back and buckle up diggers because we need to talk. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure where to start. So this film tracks the history of Queen from Freddie, joining smile to the eighty five Live Aid performance along the way, Freddie meets Mary Austin. The ban gets picked up by EMI record some tunes. Kick ass in concerts. Freddie becomes an intolerable asshole due to his excess and gets exploited by Paul Prentice comes to a census contracts aids and reunites to perform at Live Aid. And that's the plot. In a nutshell, if the timelines there seem off this isn't real life. This is just fantasy. But we'll get there. I do wanna talk a bit about what works in this field. Rami Malik really is as good in this film as you have heard. He is his scenes in particular with Lucy Boynton playing Mary Austin are exquisite Romney plays over the top when it's appropriate. But he dials it back in. Particular with his scenes with boy, the band altogether, have great chemistry and the most fun. You'll have in this film is when they're in the studio together. Hi. There you go. I only talks try. Hi. Do you want? Are we done? Unfortunately, that's about all you see the band. They're not giving a whole lot to do other than share scenes with Malik the same. Could honestly be said about every other character in the film? No, one not even mercury at times hasn't any motivation to do anything. They just do things and beyond that, none of the members of the band. Do anything wrong. They're perfect in every way. And you know, I'm not saying it's an accurate. I'm just saying it's unbelievable on the flip side of that. Choline is literally every character in the film that is not, Freddie when the first trailer came out there was quite a bit of backlash for quote, unquote, straight, washing mercury's life in the film. Freddy sexuality is definitely addressed. But they kinda played out the worst part of him. That's not true. Of course. Paul Prentice is actually the film's antagonised as sometimes lover yet. Fulltime exploiter. Freddie, and a lot of this is true and Prentice is a giant douche. But every gay characters cast as an exploiter of the worst kind all of Freddie's experiences in the quote, unquote, gay community is cast a CD in dirty, and I dunno seem to lot like gay shaming and it's a little tone deaf. And it doesn't work now they do make a concerted effort to show his positive relationship. Jim Hutton who lived with and love, Freddie, up into his death. Of course, the time line is fucked up here having them get together before Live Aid, seemingly while Freddie is on his way to win Blay. Once we all end up at Wembley for the film's climax. We are treated to a condensed. Recreation of Queen set the crowd is a bit off pudding, but the scene plays out pretty nicely. It's all very conventional tied up in a nice little bow for mainstream audiences, and you know, what that's fine on some levels. I hope that a bunch of teenagers. Go see this film at a time. One of Queen songs to their play lists. And I totally see this film becoming a midnight movie. You go see after you have a couple of hits. But this film was really not made for anyone with a knowledge of Queen, Freddie. Mercury. The time line in acronyms would be just a little too much for a true deg to handle. And what we see is the recreation of concerts are fun. But it will leave you longing view, the real thing. And not a pretender. Of course, that's always going to be a problem with Hollywood's treatment of rock and roll because the people making these movies, they don't really get it. And it's not that hard just make a film. That captures the spirit of the subject, and it's kind of the problem with bohemian rhapsody.

But I can't wait to find out. Because trailer is amazing. And I love them us. And I love them music. Some people haven't even heard a Queen music for while are at all. And they said, you know, what I'd realize I I've heard these songs before and didn't even know Queen was all the same who makes these song. Yeah. Yes. Let's say let's put a movie out here. So we can educate these kids and for the people who do know Queen Jano Yang other members. We got Brian May Roger Taylor. John deacon and some kid named, Freddie. Mercury. You know, they brought into last minute. You know, some script they wrote in there saying in some shit. I don't know you could hold a tune. He can hold it to him. You know, but. Now, if anybody's been keeping up with the movie probably heard about the film before the trailer even came out because movie was going through lot Trump. Move ahead had two directors. They went through have Bryan singer. He's been swimming little boys. I'm so. Yeah. They were legal. They will eat league age. I mean, there's like tiny boys, you know. But yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But then then they brought another direct to do. And then ahead to finish. What he convinced? Then they brought in Sasha baron. Cohen Sasha baron. Cohen said, you know, I just don't like the script. He was post play, Freddie. Mercury. A lot of people say at that. Dan, this guy. He was born to play, Freddie. Mercury. Right. And and he was like, yes. I was I'm ready to do this. Let me see that script ou know fuck that. Yeah. He's like I was born to play, Freddie. Mercury too bad the script and the back of the whole thing was that they will go kill, Freddie. Mercury up. Not. I don't think the bass as he was he was exaggerating. But his story is that he took it in. They say all right. He got about halfway through in halfway assist in FREDDY dies. But the band went on played on. Yes, they persevered. They got Paul Rogers. They got Adam Lambert, and everyone's celebrated except not really even like who. Yeah. But the but the band played and some people said not MS MU. They say, it is movie starts with, Freddie. Mercury ends with Freddie. Mercury. And that's what we got. Now. I don't know. Who stories right on version is happening out there? That's that's the correct one. But thing about it is is that the movie did get made. And as us they had a great trailer and is mostly about, Freddie. Mercury. And it seems to touch on things that people said that they wouldn't do they said, hey, you know, having on talk about him being gay. Then people say how the fuck can you not? Right now, you're gonna kill homosexual to in the script K do that. So insane. Like, they put in in the movie, everything that everybody was asking for you got your, Freddie Mercury. You got the story about his sexuality. And plus even the Bank got a big part in there. So everybody should be happy. Right. Everybody should be cool. Well, let's go ahead and take a look at this trailer and Martin myself. We'll be back with our review. Is a style. Anyway, pretending to be someone. You're not. No one we'll play que-. Fancy dress. Right. You look like an angry. Visit Meghan impression. So tell me any different from all of the wannabe Rockstars. I me tell you what it is from St.. We're for misfits who don't belong together. Thing for other misfits. The outcast right in the back of the room. Pretty sure they don't belong we belong to then. Now, the family names not good enough for you change it legally looking back. We wanted to do something different. It's. What goes we concept of repaint ourselves. We can do better. Could you tell us about the room is concerning sexuality? Cream? Colonel can not lost. Don't make decisions for the fire. Your life is going to keep petty difficult. Family. Everything. It's an experience. Tragedy. Joy, something that people will feel belongs to that. You know, these people who want to stop collaborate and this dog. Get out of that Bonilla out your system right now because we're gonna leave that bullshit right there. Thank you. Thank you. Yeah. I saw you asked over feet just moving collaborating list just shit. But now all in that chair levirate is he's very white. Know, what these what these kinds of movies men, which is a musical bio pic of bio pic of a ban. Not everybody's going to get what they want. Well, it's one of those things where when you try to make everybody happy. Nobody's really happy. Exactly, exactly. I mean, this thing that things is that the moving in touch on from me, and he's the kind of obscure things that was an album that Queen put out news of the world years ago scared. The fuck out of me. Android that goddamn military's robot that killed quick right there. I would go to them. I would go to the because you had the record store where you would like not only have the wreck with albums in the tapes and whatnot. But you also had that poster poster wreck, and I would always put that post-iraq and be scrolling scrolling through that and the that's shit would come up, and blah. Graham at the store because that shit was. And if you don't know what I'm talking about the one the robot blood on his hands he killed Queen. And it looks like something out of fantastic planet at the right one. Yeah. The French end this is a now. Would love to know how you know that out where they got the art from what was going on with that you I didn't get that too small detail that covering broad strokes here, which is not always a bad thing. Another thing that I have a good news about here is that I can finally stop trying to figure out what bohemian rhapsody is about at all these years are trying to figure out these scar moochers, and he's got a lejos. Turns out don't mean goddamn thing. No. Tend to listen to it, you try to piece together as a story you go like, wait. They just put together words that sound good. Like a lot of songs. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. The the first mistake that the wreckage rep may he has what's it about nothing dialing its interpretive? Okay. Y'all fuck out talking about then. But. The thing that people really want to know about is Rimma as Freddie Mercury because I don't care how much they throw Queen up there in the Queen story is still the Freddie Mercury store, and that's what people wanna see yet. No, no, no disrespect to the rest of the band. But. I will say the first thing we gotta talk about this right now. And just went on us movie. What's that the boxing match with the first thirty minutes with Rami Malik fighting those those teeth. Boy, man, I am not lying. I couldn't focus on the movie because it's him fighting those teeth and those teeth were kicking his hand, man. This let y'all y'all can say what you want to y'all can thank we just being shallow. But no the whole begin. This movie is is his tongue. Just trying to keep the heat from hopping out his mouth. In fact, there was a moment where somebody said somebody told him he says, I'm thinking about joining the band and one person who fucked up. And this woman looked at me like how dare you? This is the real, Freddie. Mercury. Don't act like you, Casey them got them here. Billy beat Tron that don't act like you can't see them guide them hillbilly teeth trying to hop out his mouth right now. I mean to the all movie he was just lik. Talking through his Tom because I'm teeth. We're trying to pop out of his lips if it's bad because everything he's they're caught him doing this the whole time and even with the very end when they show you real, Freddie, Mercury. You'll like his teeth. Wasn't that bad? You'll do that. Yes somewhere. Fred American looking like God damn. I wouldn't that. The whole the whole beginning. Ram in Manila random, and he like a horse trying to trying to eat peanut butter. Say like they made the Mr. Ed movie. Wilbur, I'm going to join a band. Eddie moment expected them teeth. Just pop out just run down the street. I thought they were going to be the one thing. This. This is it was done. It is very obvious and is very fake in. It's something that it stands out and people can people go into notice, but. I will say this much about those teeth. Just like the real freight in mercury once, Freddie, Mercury took the stage. Once Freddie Mercury did his thing you forgot about the teeth. You know, this is you quickly overlook that? And see when when rim Malik takes the stage. You see how he's the embodiment of, Freddie. Mercury. He's not you know, he's he's not saying he's not the one doing the vocals right here. But he owns the screen. Just like when Freddie mercury's energy just set the stage ablaze man, he has he has mannerisms down. He has his energy. And I have to say that for for that part. I think he think he did extremely well. I don't know how you felt about it. No. When he when he was on stage that was that was when I thought okay, he's catching it. And granted he's helped out by wearing the exact costumes a good week. You know, he's got that slender frame with the tight close. But he's he really does have his movements down as far as the stage performance goes. Yeah. He's on stage. He's amazing when he's on stage. He kept his, Freddie Mercury. We he's off stage. I know somebody who. Yeah. Feel about that. Because the whole time. I was watching it. I was like man he's getting so much praised for his portrayal of, Freddie. Mercury. And. Yeah. The state stuff he's got down. But Frederick, Freddie, as a person that, Freddie. Mercury Rami Malik with some bad teeth and a wig Acton. Halfway like, Mick Jagger and some kind of. What's the word? I'm looking for flamboyant cartoon, then that's exactly what he is. All stage. He's amazing when he was when he walks off stage. It's a it's a disappointment. Because it's going to say his fall is because oh brother somebody hurt back this. I'm like. Man. Look, you might get a different interpretation of it. When you see it. But what I saw stage. It looked like they took a flaming gay, man. Yeah. As smoked him out. Just got him. They just got they they took a flaming gay man in got him a really high because Rummy look alike trying to talk bad about Romney Malik. But Rami Malik. He got the is man, right. He can't get around that does have bug eyes. He got them big. As is in. When he when he when he's doing this performance. They they really can't focus on anything. Yeah. He's just kind of bug-eyed he's floating around the room when his arm out, and he's he's dropping a dialing every now. And then and is when you look at that, it was like, okay. The is really not demands fall is they wrote the character to be this way. He's you know, when you watch him. He's not. That's exactly what it is. He's he doesn't feel like a person. He. Feels like a caricature of a flaming gay, man. And it's it's not always bad because the problem is it doesn't feel real. It doesn't feel like he's an actual person except at moments when he's with his when he's with his he calls the love of his life. Who was played by Lucy Boynton, Mary is the person and whenever he's with her. You feel like that's when he's you feel like this when he's actually being sincere. That's when you actually feel the emotion coming from him. That's what you feel bad for him. Because. He wants to he wants to be wants to be with this girl, so bad, you know, he wants he really does love her. He really does want. He does consider her the love of his life is just that his big dome, and even though the whole time he's wit her. You can see that he's fighting himself the whole because he has an accepted because the period that we he hasn't accepted his homosexuality yet and struggle seems real him doing everything else doesn't struggle is real you talking about boxing met, he's constantly fight that peanuts. Did that to come home? Come. All right. The smith. Big like, you know, you're not helping. Yeah. Man is the problem is is that is played with over-confidence is played with overconfidence to where it feels stagey. Now that could be what the real freight and murky was was like, but in the movie, he feels more like a movie character. He does not feel it doesn't feel like an an authentic human being which is. Which is too bad. 'cause that's the central character. Everybody wants to see and he's definitely plan something else. He's not really playing a person. I kind of set the same thing right there. Oh, I say that in spades. It's it's it's extremely disappointing. Because there's a chance to really see into him. And everything you read about fray mercury was that when he wasn't on stage. He was he was shy. It was more reserved. You can you can watch videos of him. And he doesn't chrome across as flaming like you might look at it and go like, okay, he's got the crew cut in the moustache. Sure. This guy is most likely gay. But at is some kind of doubt to it this character here, not at all. Yeah. It's like he's just throwing it out there like. Like. That's like come on. This isn't. I mean, it's. I mean, I is it's that thing where throughout this movie. I was like, you know, what if if he wasn't dead. I bet they wouldn't do do him like this. No. I mean, the the Duke might as well just sprouted wings and just flew around the room with a magic wand. Tinker bell or something. It's like, yo y'all did this man wrong dumped, I'm telling you. I'm not even like, I'm not talking about Romney Malik. He'd do what they ask him to do. They ask you you said, you know, what they say Rami more game. We need more games. Great. Yeah. But if you make a little bit more gay and a little bit. I mean, a lot more. Yeah. No. Then rob me mad like man, if I'm more, you know, if I get more than this. I'm gonna be practically fucking a gun at this point. Could you? Great. If you could do that. Yeah. I guess it's like they went to Bryant sing. And I say you're going to mention that. He's gay right. That's all I'm gonna talk about. Yeah. No. This is. To me is kinda insulting. When it look if the man was flamboyant, and that flaming that's fine. But you know, a lot of people saying that he was not like that. And they did that just they made him net gay because they need a shortcut to make them more entertaining. Yeah. And that's all that's all. I I mean, and this is not them but shortcuts. No, it's not much shortcuts rushes through the story so fast like Jesus Christ you guys which is what to five years and fifteen minutes. It's going on. It doesn't mean it could have been animal flaming had to set his ass on fire. This it is not it's not. A lot of people like us performance. I didn't I wasn't a big fan of other than his his state. I don't know how to proceed further, but I'm glad we both agree on that. Oh shit. We you can't miss it. I've been reading things where people are like, oh, he's trying splendid. He's wonderful online. Okay. Okay. Fine. All right. I believe those people scared to say anything to mercury dead. It would be like fuck this shit, man. Yeah. I like dudes. But when like that. To me like this, and you're gonna hear Lydon negative reviews in that's the main reason stemming from that because the rest of the movie doesn't fill out thinning, man. You know, the rest of this film. It. It feels like the movie feels phony because they took a larger than life ban. It took a band of transcended the conventions of rock and roll in the conventions of pop music and put them in a bio pic that is painfully typical it is it is. So by the numbers, they could've bought it at a kit. This was just plugged things in they went to a computer program say we need the Queen story and just. And used every other bio pic out there. They just they just replaced Johnny cash with Fred America. You know, because it is every bio pic that you have musical bio pic that you've seen n not even it's even more formulate the knows because this movie has a pattern this movie it out the out the film three or four times, they repeat the same thing. Which is number one. You hear you hear the inklings of a song? You know, somebody, you know, so wind chimes. Oh my God. That sounds familiar, and then you get the ban talking about it. You get the process, and then you go from the process to fruition when a plan on the big band aid. Yeah. What you get an indifferent? Tones. You get the the wacky nece. Martin the the bat stage hijinks that led to bohemian rhapsody. Chickens talented. Got a rooster was human. The haircut. Oh my God. That rooster sued later. Hi. Can you go? Talks try. Hi. Do you want? Nobody had no nuts after the. Everybody just goes out. But that's the funny part. Oh, but they got I'm playing these things. So you can see the pattern because oh let me play this up. That's the behind the scenes part. You'll see how they transition into the main on the big stage. Are we done? The finished product, and they do it with other songs in the movie now playing this other clipper, even they kind of linked. I'm playing this other clips you can see that they kind of do the exact same thing just with different emotional tones while that one was the humorous comedy relief. Backs to the back story of a classic song. This one is the more dramatic tone right here where we're the the passion for the fans that led up to we will rock you. I want to give the audience a song that they can perform. So what can I do? Magic. Thousands of doing this. Bye. Get them out. Those are two right there. There's another. There's another one there. And by the time, it's all done all of a sudden realize like the movie about Queen, Freddie. Mercury. This is like an origin story about the classic song. Right. Right. Yeah. It's building all the songs that this is how Jason got the mask and machete. But also every time they do it. They go unnoticed for people who don't know who are new to queens, go. Oh, that's how and the whole time. If you know anything about them away record to produce you watching that you go and it didn't go down nothing like this. No, this is all fakery. No, yes. See that's gonna realize that. This movie's pulling some on your right here. And I don't even know if the if the producers and directors know this, but what the movie's doing is, they're they're giving you some really bland mediocre shit and fool you having a good time because they just they are just regurgitating all the Queen songs. Yeah. Everything is a build up to another classic song. Everything is a build up to a final concert. And you're going to be thinking that oh because you wouldn't theater tapping your foot to these songs that exist already. You can thank you that you fall in love with the movie you take away goddamn songs. It's every movie that you seeing much of a movie there, and so much is taken up by the music. That the music that they got full you like in the movie for that. When that happens. All the story. Parts of just they're just little bits to fill in the gaps. As I was saying, some of them are just little visual bits, like, you know, hints afraid of mercury's homosexuality. But it's not done very clever. Freddie mercury's on a phone a payphone you get hints of when he discovered his his his his first feeling for homosexuality by a trucker walking by giving them. Google is saying fuck me in the bathroom. Comeback to Freddie, Mercury on the phone like. She was sweating. You know? That's that's not real storyteller. Man. It's understood I'm saying, it's not I don't know if you do wanna your one of your psych out things where you go like. Yeah. But later loved it. But I gotta be honest. I was watching movie I was like man, there is not a genuine moment. And this entire thing. It's it's about ninety minutes in to this almost twenty hours before there was something in motion. I was like all right. This kind of hits it serious and emotional parts are cool, but they have played out in a really very standard way. Also, you get Young America who was born for both sides and. For for for Bill bull Sada? Choose all the time. We'll see what the teeth. Town anybody. That's that's very young age right there. Wow. Well, yeah. He did grow into the teeth. Louis wallace. You know? Young, but they show him at home with the family as a teenager and they're emotionally to the motion apart. But it's still played out the same way it's generic the with the family the support of sister. The doting mom the dad who doesn't approve lifestyle. You know? You're not using the name of the family all these sameness you've seen this, and it's also way to calculate it, man. It is everything when Martin says none of this shit. Did not happen in real life. Like, I happen. This movie is no way it could. Because everything is way too coincidental. The. And they play this up again for entertainment sake. Doing this entertain you very quickly in the shortest hand way possible one the most big name waste any time. Like the biggest one the big coincidences in the movie is. You have Freddie Mercury before. He was ready to mercury admire in the band when they were call smile. Right. And it just so happened the night that he goes backstage to say Hello to the band that he loves so much. They just happened to lose their lead singer enjoyed the show. I also I saw him. They say it is quick need someone. You was a good day. Freddie mercury's right there in front of van and from that moment on when I say that Freddie, Mercury is played with too much confidence. You don't get ever. Get any kind of struggle in the success of Freddie, Mercury. The mummy take stage before they even have the name Queen that Queen, you know, he's already he's. That's what I mean by little stuff from overconfidence. You never get the feeling that Freddie, Mercury before he's afraid of mercury can be he can fail now. Now, you're wrong. Because when he first gets on a stage, he's fighting with microphone, but it leads to him having his his signature, which was a microphone on a broken stand. And everything is the origin point everything. Like bullshit. That's not out at. How did that Mike become a member of the pain? Fuck out of here with this, man. No, no, no. This is this is. It feels a movie a bio pic is fine coming in a repeating what we've seen the bio pics. The problem is if you can't cover it up the problems that you can't if you if you can't do it well enough to wear feels natural because all these movies even these movies praised before kademi war winners. They follow the same thing. They have a there's a certain pattern of what happens. I mean. It's what makes a good story a rise and fall and rise and fall, and you think something bad's gonna happen. And then it flips the other way or they get in trouble usually with musicians, it's drugs at some point or them falling apart. But here is just so predictable and put together in such a way where you're like, I don't think it happened. Like this. Even did there's a much more interesting and in depth way to do it. You can circumvent things it's still tell the same story again. You know, why you didn't think it really happy? That way because it feels phony when you're watching it right there. There's a movie out there. That's about people that didn't even exist, and they told better bio pic the Knicks. Yeah. Stars born. It's the first time I'm worried about. He's talking to Freddie McGregor. The first time actually, thank you. That is a stars born Bradley Cooper's movie, which is like the fourth remake of that movie. But it's a rise and fall store. Sure. But they. Those stores are Dhamma dozen. But he found a way to tell it felt offense. Okay. Well, you find the window of where the most interesting things happen. And then you bring characters that feel real and talk to each other like real people. So that the audience cares. And yeah, you can watch a star is born. And from the moment starts, you know, things are probably gonna go pretty badly for somebody in it. But you still have that hope because you like them so much here. You're just going through you pretty much just waiting for the next song drop on the jukebox. Yeah. Exactly. It's another greatest hits. Now, that's not to say that there's not some intrigue here again is kind of shallow because all these movies. You always have yours have certain things you have loved turn people apart success breaking friendships apart. And you also had the business side, you know, people who fight over their their, you know, their their livelihood, which is the band. And that's kind of what you have here. You know, you have people fighting over, Freddie, Mercury as a business, and it was interesting about it that is done from two different areas done for one area, which is someone who's a lover. And you have another guy was a manager. Allen Leech is the the lover that's the actor right there in Aden. Gillian plays the manager in the group, and they both have their own kind of special interests at heart freight and mercury any then they're not really played up that much. In fact, Gila Hain plan nobody but the little finger from game of thrones. No matter what you put this. And he's always somewhat just plod. I know the minute. He's in there and say, here's your new manager you like don't trust. This can't even take a head shop. What I looked like he's about to kill the photographer up to something. He's always plod. Debtor plot. The last piece of cake. That's all he does. He plays the same character. That's what he does here. And you know, what there's a. There's a there's some things that I think were well intentioned, but not seeing through very well Bryan made the Qatar. It was an amazing tars has won the most distinct rock guitar sound. Yeah. Still out there today. Yeah. Brian. And I have to say Brian May also great casting on his part. That's a William Lee who plays him. If you look at Brian May at a very young age. They're very close today are close I mean, mostly they get the whig spot on. But it's close he was I thought the actors they got for Roger Taylor. And especially John deacon were almost like they pull them from the past. Exactly. Like those thought it was good cast all around is just the other member. Everybody knows very well is Brian May ensure. Wow, okay. That was great cast. And right there been Brown may is one of the producers on this. He wants to make it known in just about Fred. Hey, we should to. They actually put it out there like. You know, they don't mind that he wants to make it known that they were banned. And I think that that was something that was important because I think together they all did contribute to have a distinct sound, it wasn't like, Freddie. Mercury wrote all the songs or even all the hits. Yeah. Yeah. And you know, the thing is is that, you know, I'm glad to push this image. But it seemed forced and it was just it was delivered in really bad. She's ways. I mean, they actually have one part in the movie like we're not just a band, we're family then diesel. Room for one more. Fuck out of here. Well. Kind of it was it was forced you have to force. It that way. There was a genuine way to do that. And also. If it was it would be good. If. If the ban wasn't presented as just being a reactionary to to to Freddie, Mercury because a lot of movie, whether they're fighting against Freddie against rooting Monning. And plot his genius is always them reacted to him. And most of the movie is just the band just sitting back to shaking their head. Like, oh, Freddie again. My can't you be straight responsible like us. You know? You know? It's it's one of those things almost feel like a sitcom because it's probably one or two scenes where they're not the band isn't together. But most of the time is, Freddie. Mercury versus the bad. Right. They are always in a committee. Yeah. There were, Freddie. Why are you lay, Freddie? Hey, Fred, who's cooking dinner knife reading what's going on, Freddie, and all of them together all the time Reddin PB by himself. But that band is always together. No, no. I not only do I agree with you take it that much further and that one of the big problems with this movie like a lot of these movies. Like, this is that it's made with the members of the band still alive and controlling the narrative like they couldn't get the right? So usually songs without the ban being producers and agreeing to what went on the screen, so they all come across as, hey, we're just a bunch of nice guys who had to put up with this, you know, this problematic singer. But you know, he was really tired. So we did it we loved him. But most time we stood back and shook our heads and never caused any problems. Oh, sure. Roger Taylor may have cheated on his wife, maybe or. Made it up. I'm surprised even let that much get in there. Oh, no, no, these guys, they really they're they're they shown just a bunch of fun Lovin Ladd who had you know, who. Well, if we could have had more hits records at Fred fucking, right? Hit the blame him. And you know, speaking a witch, you know, that bad had the hand in this. Because if it ain't Queen you don't get no love from this movie right here. If you expected that David Bowie cameo. Yeah. Where we were he got together. Afraid america. We got this. Moves quick to say get out of here. Yeah. That should play for about two seconds. Somebody. Yeah. That's still play the trailer. We want. This is Queen bits brain that dude up in here. You don't get to see they play Rick James longer than they played David Bowie here. Not only that. But they go into Freddie, mercury's two solo albums where that was like what you do a solo albums suppose shit, man, it we're done like that broke them up every life. It did not break them up. They made he made atoms and they kept playing it together. Yeah. Yeah. That was a bunch of bullshit even down to the very end of the life. Well, all right. We'll get back together for live eight they weren't even broken up. They get I have it written down right here. I got rhythm on knows. This movie is a God damn life. I'm looking at it right here. This does it does shit. Like if it ain't Queen you. They Freddie mercury's band like when he goes solo they cut to studio band back. We're joined the retards. That's that's petty. Man. It is pets. It was petty. Didn't go down albums, but he didn't enjoy it. Yeah. They have on the phone. Talking to them and he's life. They're like, hey, Fred, how you doing mate house? I sell a create. He's like he looks back at the bay. Like, he's like. I'm okay reluctantly Brown may was working with George Miller. But now, let's talk about any of that. No, no, hell, no. You know, if a up the goal was to show them more as a ban that that didn't work because again, they just be reactionary to him, you know, this whole thing. So they kinda they kinda fucked himself on that. 'cause I 'cause I know they like. They really want. They really want to make the move. They want to murder this, dude. They put a scene in there. Where Freddie Mercury like like he was able to stop his ass and kill him in the middle of movie. They would've done it, man. If they could have made that version with Fred America was a Satan, worship, some, you know, they they. You know, they went to Jill you, see if they could go away the eyes of March going movie and just gang beat his ass. Leave him right there because they want to make the Queen movie. But they knew that they couldn't do it. Look cool to see them bond with each other and near the end of the movie. It's it's it's it's a it's a touching scene. You know, Freddie, Mercury goes in he's like well blokes aids. So we gotta do this concert. I don't wanna go out get the conscious by the way, I was talking about how this go look really cool on the big screen when you watch it on AmEx. That crowd that they thought look so cool in the trailer. You see where they copied impaced it this little spot of crowd right here to the rest of the screen. No, no, you're not lying. They did that shit out to fix and the big Live Aid concert that is enough for them to put their differences aside. And do it one more time for Freddie because he has aids he didn't get diagnosed with aids until three years after that. Just flat out fucking lion. Freddie. Mercury. Was a flame in flamboyant allowed as homosexual who went and got aids on purpose. So he could go to bring the band back together and do Live Aid. Do this. Like the movie like like like, I'm gonna tell you got me. It got the movie God me because I saw that. The Bank came back together because they've new Fred of mercury will he didn't have too much longer to go with lot of recent reviews, say shit. That was still fucking. Rapidly actually. And then he didn't get hit. Again. Didn't get diagnosed two after that. Yeah. But just three years after that movie's a God damn live, man. Look, it's one thing to like take going to take a creative liberties for entertainment. It's another thing that just fucking live when the stories out there. Exact cause I look at this. Everybody can look on Wikipedia and Google and find out all this stuff. Why would you still lie? I. I mean, they insult him even down to his life partner through the last few years of his life. They make it like, oh, it was just a it was just a hookup. Yes. Like, wow, gee, man, yellow care how you just paint him. Not he's gone. It can't fight back. It really does. Look, maybe we're going to far. But it really does. It really does. Like, they just dug up, Freddie, Mercury and just looked at a skeleton. Fuck you. Who gets the last land? Now. It really it feels like it feels like some disrespect, man. It did not. I mean, it's one thing to take one or two things and change them, you expect that, you know, you wanna have a dramatic narrative. There's this license you're going to take and probably much of this could have been forgiven. Had it been a better or genuine movie. But it's it's not it's it's it's it's movie karaoke it. Yeah. Thank you. Mar. That's exactly where it is. That's just it's like it's like the the greatest hits and find out even the greatest hits ain't even on the truth about. Well, you go to see you go to see a Queen greatest hits you get there. And find out what the Queen cover band get. Yeah. All right. Well, if they're good I'll go ahead and watch on me like, well, it's actually the kids from American idol who would just doing some Queen songs. Kelly clark's. No, no, no. From the. Season people. You don't even know. Yeah. And I'm taking points off petty. I'm going to be petty. I said, I know you ain't going walk through this whole movie get to these credits on talk about flash, Gordon. Oh what? Oh, no. You'll say one of us. Mark got tell me they're not gonna talk about. They are so petted. I can't even get flash. Gordon? No respect. I mean that was one of the that is a classic soundtrack. 'cause what I want to know. Now, you think that's the bad laughing. And by the way. Thought about, but you know, the thing that got me I think it's important to put something like flash Gordon in there. And I'll tell you why. Because flash Gordon was something that kind of seemed like it went against everything that they show talking about they want to be original. They don't want to sell out. There were going against all convention. They were going to get the business. Why did they decide to do this? Always wondered that. And they didn't touch that at all the movie instead they went for the easy ship. I hate this movie. I don't I don't because one thing to get right in you need to know. This you need not follow this bullshit. But one of the things that get right because it speak. That's one the fakest thing during the movie, they said, you know, what it's almost like, the producers and directors know, like we know, and you know, let's just leave people with a concert. Let's put them you not cheer for this movie. You at the end of it. If you sit on the big screen might feel like you at one of these on these concert films, but you put you at a concert. They play all these songs that you love and the you walk out. And if that's what your mind because they get you these endorphins of with you know, that you got full from listening to music, you leave and a happy mood, and you like the movie the movie's not that good, you'll leave them because you like the music exactly the movie the movie is bullshit. Rami Malik spur form insz onstage in some of the things that they do with the music stage in the music in the film guest goes onto art. Art production here art direction. That's pretty good. So and for the few moments that you do get some genuine sincere moments with Freddie Mercury. That's where something too, but it all balances out to like, a low rental, man. For me on a lot of people are going to go see this will be entertained because of the music in there. But that south of that just was not me this go make a lot of money because queens, become more and more popular. There's been a big lead up to this even the galaxy theater over there. They have a screen rather than plan trails like they usually do is just dedicated to show in Queen YouTube videos. Yes, pop everybody up for it. And it is it's designed it's cynically designed to be a crowd-pleasing movie. But as you say, it's all completely based on the music. It's good feeling. You get for the music that's transferred to you to make you come out of it. Because you take away that music, and it's it's some bullshit even down to they have some special cameo casting in here of a man who's kind of important in in the Queen time live in that he made but wraps popular again as the generic. Record producer, who's just. So like, I don't wanna play this. You'll never get anywhere. Oh, yeah. Well show you because they gotta be rebels for no reason. And I honestly I came out really really underwhelmed and disappointed. And then over the course of the week. I grew to hate this movie. I just thought about it. Just just just not man so much they could done so much. They make it look like they're going to do in those trailers. And what if they got a whole to the story of prince David Bowie, and they did this because those guys are dead. So maybe they could make something genuine as opposed to this right here. I just I just came down to like, you alot rental just because I was like, well, listen it's going to entertain the crowd. And maybe that's all it was it was designed to do. Maybe before. I was I was thinking too highly of its aspirations. It's it's still a travesty. And the last twenty minutes is them recreating the the Live Aid concert, which you know, as a way to finish off. I was like, okay, that's cool show them plan. And then wait, wait. You got to reenact their entire twenty minutes set Martin give people a concert. That's how they get them. Yeah. I saw that concert when it happened. It was awesome. But it happens. It's over. You watch some video of it. It's like I say once again, it's it's like the karaoke lip synching. It's why it's going to watch. Somebody lifts thinking saw the Martin. If you watched the rich. No, you watch what everyone. Was. All the time. If you watch original footage you watch. It were Freddie, Mercury doesn't have aids. Maybe it's not as dramatic Marta. Yeah. You did know. Yeah. That's probably really bad taste probably would have been more positive at movie didn't lie. Yeah. Several times over and over selfishly like like, we don't have the internet. People remembered actually like like Brad, don't remember, my my was like man blow said I was there. Gave him aids. Brag about it to this day. It'd be here. We don't show Samuel. Same is to kill. You. Do get Marnie. Got drugs now. Tell you mad. They do this. David boy imprint somebody going. Kill- killing myself tell you what you take prints. Together. Don't do this shit. Okay. How much I don't care how much money this movie. Makes you thought you fucking do press. Like, this don't you do this out of the market machines already in place. It's gonna make a lot of money. Yeah. Yeah. Vanilla ice store. You can do it. Secret. Oh, I'm hurt by this. By the way. I was I tell you. I was just wanna move is. I'm looking forward to same here. The most this year, and I didn't I didn't I didn't believe the reviews people because like I said, I thought people going into probably see that. It wasn't great show really held that against it. But no man with the opposite from people. Really? Yeah. Like Nike, but I just love Queen. All right. All right. I'm gonna take your Queen. Yes. 'cause I hadn't read any reviews, and I was I was excited looking forward to it. And just watching him fight those teeth for thirty minutes in the beginning. I was like this is not a great stunt. No. I'm like in my watching the Queen move a vampire flick? Director that finished it is Dexter Fletcher. Yes, they wanted to hire. In the beginning. I don't know. How Bryan singer snake it away from him? Then they had to go back and beg him. Like could you please finish this? No. I know. And I wonder if he was the one who came in and said, okay, I gotta do is fixed those teeth. Yeah. All the money for this movie right here. In y'all got these teeth out of Gumbo machine. How do I look like a fucking? Everything. It's an experience. Tragedy. Joy, something that people feel belongs to that.

What we are literally going on tour this weekend again. Yes. Minneapolis, milwaukee. Cleveland buy tickets who dot us slash live. See us, Minneapolis Milwaukee. Cleveland come out see us. We'll be there this weekend were so excited. We're very excited. And now it's onto the Oscars. Right. Let's talk about the Oscar God. I honestly don't feel that terrible. Only a little terrible. I feel like a mix of good and terrible. I feel mostly fine. Really? Even after Hollywood's biggest night, even after Hollywood's biggest night calling it Hollywood's biggest night is one of the funniest things about the Oscars. It is really good it. And it was a good Oscars. It was a good Oscars. That were there were enough. Good moments to overshadow the terrible moments of which there were I had fall. There were. And I think what was great was green book winning best picture was terrible. But it wasn't as bad as if bohemian rhapsody won best picture. So I felt like I could be okay with it. Like, I wasn't with it. But I wasn't like, whoa. The worst situation did not happen. I was just glad that I got some use out of all of my green book merch like showed up to the Oscar party and all of my green book hat. That's. Book. I had a green book an actual green blame Peter Farrelly. Daddy, hat a loved it. It was that movie is really a bummer 'cause I feel like it's not good. But then people who liked it misunderstand. Why people who didn't like it didn't like it, you know? And then there's just weird like conflict of people earnestly being like, I thought it was a nice, Bob LA. And then other people will like it's bad because it just it was like all easy Nash of ideology, it's easier to get the. It's so like smarmy and good hearted that it's easy to to avoid everything that's wrong with the and it's easy. And it's hard to look up all of the problems with like with regards to Dr Shirley's family that requires effort in a way that like knowing the Bryan singer socks is a little easier. These days, you know, like that movie got more like this is a problem. Visually just upsetting. It's just bad. Like, even when they showed the clip and they're like Romney Malik like a nation. Clips him. He was lip synching terror his Ostra clip was lip synching that was shocking. So has he upgraded is now of them or something like I own even know, I think came -ust be he felt the stage. I mean, the Oscars did not want him up there. He fell off the stage right after he won the award was pushed off the stage by the ghost of, Freddie. Swear to you or like, Adam Lambert, like, you know, pushed about a member and the stage fell off Adam Lambert was fantastic talk about redeeming queens legacy or some good if corny show opener good if forty. Every Lucian to a problem, although he was going to perform no matter what I think. Right. Like, yes. No, no host not having a host conic iconic. I thought it was weird because I thought I almost missed the funny random bits, but would have grown if they had existed. The thing about the ostriches like I like all of the trash even though I will complain about it. So it's like, right. I didn't necessarily miss all of that trash, and I didn't necessarily miss all of those montages. But when they're on. I love them like I level those light to complete chair like the WBZ love those things. Inside is through. All of my dreams become realities. And some of my realities become dreams. I'm not life. Stories of beautiful. But I wasn't lying. All there weren't any movies because it was so speedy. It was like it kept a beat that the Oscars. Never keep you know. Which was good. That was good. It was good. We got to see people actually accept a war is nice. And it was it was good. Also because this was such a weird Oscars. Like, this is the worst I've ever done in my Oscars ballot in years and years and years maybe ever so it was filled with fund surprises and good speeches and like impounding fun facts afterwards. Like, the the women who the women new one for Black Panther for costume design and production design are like the number two and number three like women of color to ever win non acting awards that was a huge feet on the gate, great speeches. So it's gave win rate speech. It imagine putting those speeches that are usually the most heartfelt ones because they're like the the people who noticed all year. Right. I mean, we we would have only gotten like the best speech would have been Libya Coleman, which would have been nice, but we would have missed out on these other really important moments to hear some sort of like song dance from whoever the. Hosts I've thought it was nice because it it gave the host looseness gave everyone a chance to like ham up there. You know, the presenting you know, when when when Melissa McCarthy Brian tire Henry's that was really really fun. It was a rakish tilt to a hat the drape of fabric. Just so. Nuance and sophistication just she qualities. Of the most effective costume design. These artists create a steetch of textiles with often tizzy yet never distract from the stories bunny. And if didn't feel over the top because we didn't have this host that was already doing these over the top silly things. And we know that it wasn't like a waste of time to engage. The last thing I needed was Ellen in Freddie, Mercury drag and we didn't get it was great. And honestly, we still got our Maya Amy Tina opener even on was really funny. Everyone's like, well, why don't they host? It's like they don't want to. But wasn't good enough. Wasn't this enough? What else does a host really do other than make like that opening monolog said of jokes and then handful opening model on than there in like four more times doing terrible bids the opening monologue. Always like fine too terrible. So it was really funny tonight because it was about this the meta commentary of having had a host and not having a host, which was hilarious. Again. We are not your. This year. But if we had hosted it probably would have gone like this. Well, I'm BUSTER Scruggs, like hardly know her paycheck. A good one. Hey, Chadwick bozeman. What kinda plans you got later? He spanks her so tight they've entered my spider verse. Schram Elliot from leeann mustache and Lucy pointing Lucy Boynton got her moment in the sun. God did anyone get more screen time than Lucy Boynton, Lucy Boynton? You're the heart of this film. You are beyond mentally talented. You have captured my heart. Thank you so much. Anyone did anyone who we had no idea who they were get most green time Boyne. We've certainly talked about Lucy pointing in the past because she was stating Malik when we discussed him last time because Romney Malik loves dating has women co stars. Yeah. I'm not saying that his back, but he loves dating women stars. Are you not saying Ben is Bobby saying that is back? Ben is back. He loves his beautiful girlfriend. I mean, he when he he went back to kiss her. He got a second taste just kiss the worst. The worst thing about Romney Malik sitting next to Lucy Boynton was that his mom was like actors was like in the valley like his. She was like England nail. My mom is in here somewhere. I love you. I love you lady. I don't know where mom is like mum. And then they cut to mom. He didn't even know where she was sitting. I bet she was like in another room. They were like can we get is on the mom. The mom is in off a off shoot room in Pasadena. Bradley Cooper, Bradley Cooper, set next to his mom. More famous out. Bradley Cooper's mom 'cause she was sitting front row. Rami Malik mom. Who knows where she was? I mean, I'm not convinced that woman wasn't just some random attendant in a wig and like incognito because he should've known his mom was. But it's funny is the producers knew where his mom was noticed that they do like they had got they figured out where she was or whatever and had the camera for him to like thank her. He's like mom. I love you lady. And she was God knows where she was like another planet. She was looking down from the balcony, you could see like she was pitched looking downward Rami Malik dislike him, I just hate them movie. And it really like rubs off on him. This is the first Oscars in the I can't remember when that I haven't seen all the best picture nominees yet. Didn't watch me up city. I didn't do it. It's honestly like really really terrible. Like, I really I knew going in that was going to be terrible. But it surprised me it it feels like a lifetime movie and lifetime movies are often quite good. But it was like a bad lifetime. No. It just it's like a really really weird impression. And then the story moves so quickly, and is so clearly flawed, and like missing things that it just feels so bad it feels so bad, and he'll be at the piano and be like another one bytes dust. And you're like what that's how that song written? It sit down at a panel and say another one bites the dust like. That's weird. I guess also movies about songwriting are songwriting really tough to show in film. Right. It's it almost feels like the creative process does not know translate. No, no, not in the slightest. So it's just like I'm very excited to see the Eddie, God, the Elton John bio pic, that's like kind of at the heels of Bahia and rhapsody like gleefully hanging on trying to like, you know, riots at jer ten sings sings all the songs, so it's kind of interesting they don't sound like Elton, John they sound like tearing Edgerton not that. I know what he sounds like or looks like really I have. No, let's go back to Lucy Boynton, Lucy Boynton is dating Ravi Malik why? Because they met on the set of abo- rhapsody. She played Mary Austin. I don't know who that is is fake girlfriend. They make too was wife of okay? Which is why old that Romney? If you just think about it. Just take a step back saying Romney Malik is deeply in love with his love slash lover his lover. For Lucy Boynton who played the wife of Freddie, Mercury. Takes a step back goes to the valley looks. I'm literally going to sit with his mom in the back for the rest of the show put on someone Oculus like Cubal opera, Baloch binoculars. Lakes. It's just too much for me to handle. And she's a young child star. She's an influence or model. Apparently. She's a big deal. We had a friend of the Oscars party. Who was like, no. She's a big deal. You don't understand like, she's huge. She's and implements. So she's a model. She's doing everything. Right. She is it girl her Instagram is an algorithm and yet her Instagram, but doesn't seem person called her the Sienna Miller of. Of day. And I was like like. Like. Miller up today that works. So that's Lucy pointing as I feel like honestly, she's probably gonna end up being more famous than he is ultimately at the end of the day. Maybe maybe see it. I see point. I think this was her coming out parties, I think this was her already. I think that she's going to dump his ass, and then like move on to bigger and better things move onto greener pastures really to move on to pastures. She's going to start dating Peter Farrelly, and or whatever Villalonga knit Villalonga. She's going to greener building her masters, Nick Villalonga. Fuck. No. I mean, but I do believe Villalonga went up there tower. Weiss? I don't I don't wanna talk about it. I it's upsetting to me that that those movies were even there's always bad movies. But like. Herschel Owens for it. And you're like, I guess I I'm what are the who were the other who's? So we had Libya Coleman toe the line of them last night because she had the biggest upset one over Glenn Close. Glenn who shot herself in the damn foot by hours, you work, gos-, cours coun-. She wore she dressed as Oskar even God address. Like, she was at a funeral. She knew she was going to lose Glenn Glenn. No, one got one no one owned harder than Glenn Close. I mean, we gotta talk about this. You gotta tell us who made this came back. Look at this marketing this capable tell us about this is made by west Borton at Carolina Herrera, and he made it especially for me. And it has four million beads or Bill. John. Weighs forty to forty two. This time you come to the author the real Dr Shirley got owned harder than Glenn Close but apart from the real Dr Shirley, no one got more owned than Glenn Close. And we couldn't even be mad long because vehicle just gave the best speech of the night. And then we were like, Glenn who what we stand Queen Anne really legend all about. Ooh, it's genuinely quite stressful. This is. Gone. I think people if the way I forget anybody I'm gonna find you later, I'm going to give you a massive snow, and I'm really sorry. If I might forget now, it's true though. Because I seemed Len speech, I saw the speech forty five times. The problem is like every award show leading up Glenn was winning. So we saw the same speech. Unlike and then Livio was like this fresh air. And I think the thing about the Oscars we prefer fresh air over what we've seen before not NPR Provo the Greg paid. I just air. We love fresh air. We love fresh air who else was a who last night at the at the Oscar ceremony who else did you find hooey? I I'm trying to. Billy porter like kept on kept his momentum by doing pre show stuff was dressed wonderfully. He's still not super famous. So it was kind of a big deal that he had such a high profile thing. It's one thing to be the standard of the Golden Globes. But like the authors are kind of another thing Aquafina went up there, which was huge. I think Aquafina John Mullany and she did a great bit. I think like they really, you know, people who love John Mullany like I think no who Aquafina is. But like the combination of them together. I think got new fans for both was full. I don't really know who the other that was like better than her SNL host. I mean, it was lying. It was lying. Them's like, the big the big Spike Lee moment, the big like, Regina king moment. The big Ofri solo the free solo people. They were cute. I loved free solo. I Li talked about like costume and production, design and them. Oh, you know, the the fun who the composer? Oh, yeah. He the the Black Panther, sir. He was fun. He looked like he looked like the guy from dating around Ludvig. Sorry, lewd v Johnson. He was a fun. Who is that enough for the Oscars? It was great to talk about our foods your nightmare. Your. Their food with the fuck are you talking about I made delicious homemade Christian bale kale? Christian kale Caesar featuring? I already forgot it was so stupid. I kids which is like which is like in Kisii audience is like excuse me. That's supposed to be Regina, king, pizza's k. Pitas king. What the fog there's something you could add pepitas. If you wanted what was the one in the middle though that was really bad. I'm ready. Forget vine was Al Fahd's, Matt Kwara, knee and cheese topped with sliced Roma tomatoes. It was very good. It was good of one of green greens, which was my son, and that was the best one greens greens shock the best per green. Book was green shook honestly. It was a salad. We also had Melissa mcnuggets.

And I'll let you know when ROY mouths mom should set next at the Oscars dot com is live if indeed that happens Lindsey, you're gonna take the reins on this one because I truly I truly I don't know that. I mean, it's the Kardashian burn out that we've discussed before, you know, to to the point of exhaustion, but I don't really I'm not sure if it's because I'm being too cynical. And I think it's just promo for the show which premieres end like three weeks, which certainly is. I don't understand why we care about Jordan woods. I thought like Jordan woods could kill someone on maybe like yawn. What's interesting about this is it reminds me of when Kylie was pregnant, and we also said is this promo for the show and the answer was yes. And no was she really pregnant. Yes. Was the promo for the show. Yes. Like in. It's unbelievable. How they work on two levels. This one is more like because. She is a good thing. Like, it was it was good. So it ended up being like to positive things as promotion versus a negative fake thing for promotion. His at first I was kind of like is this a fake thing for promotion. I mean khloe in Tristan already kind of have a rocky relationship. Maybe it was like, oh, you know, whatever. But I don't feel like this really throws Jordan under the bus in a way that is not. I don't think she would sacrifice herself. Or be asked to sacrifice herself. Like this in the name of show that she really isn't even on. Okay. So who's Jordan once Jordan woods is Kylie jenner's longtime best friend they met when they were literally like teenagers, really young. They met maith grade two were introduced by a longtime friend of both the woods and the jenner's Jaden Smith the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett. Smith Jordan's father, John was a sound engineer of the fresh prince of Bel-Air, okay, and physically Jordan became like kylie's. Dont best friend. What is your vice for to keep a friendship forever? You just can't put too much pressure on them. You have to understand each other and be open to communicating with how you feel understandings the two things that worked with us lower already. We have a personality that just kind of matches. So I can go two days without talking to her. I can go to talking to her, but nothing will change we've ever gone to talking more. So like two hours, but and respect for each other, whatever Jordan herself is a model. Does a lot of modeling. And now that she's like an influence our show has a fitness line. And she goes all this stuff. I interviewed her once for profile, and she was so incredibly boring. I could not stand it because I also because I profiled three of four women or three women in the same. No four women the same day. Like, I interviewed them back to back. And she was like the last one I interviewed and ready interviewed like sky Jackson Oriole winter by also be at. That's what Jaden and Will Smith in the slew of other cool kids you've likely heard of. But that just means she's got good taste like I had to literally pivot in and out. You know, because I'm a talent. -ted as writer. I know. Thank you. So Jordan woods this week. While we were like really going around the Bush beating around the Bush going around the Bush. We're going around the Bush year me prancing around the Bush skipping. My like ones are so visual versus the actual one. So Jordan, Jordan woods was caught. Smooth ching hanging out with nuzzling cheating with Tristan Thompson that is chloe's boyfriend the father to her child. True. Yes. This is a huge deal because we knew that he was shady he'd already cheated on on khloe before that was on caught on camera. Understanding cheaters g but the twist which there always is is that it was with Jordan, which is like shocking because Jordan, literally lives inside Kylie jenner's house aunt that's a lot to put on the line for like a smooch, or whatever, you know, or whatever else happened. And so now it's been days. Later. I mean, we we kind of waited a full episode to talk about this. We wanna see if anything else would happen. I hate when we talk about something. And then like a big thing happens. But really like nothing else has happened. Like there's been a lot of sources. We'll did you see the source that said that she only cheated which Chris tristen because she was drunk. I am also read another source that was like they've been doing this off and on for like a month or something. Yikes. Like, it wasn't like, oh, we're drunk like lump, you know. Well, then this is so it's like, so it's so it's your right? So it's you get yes. They're doing this remote the show, but yes, it actually happened. So it's like in the actually happen point of it. It's like, yes, the cheating probably did occur. But the promoting the show is we are going to milk the hell out of this. And keep releasing like source after conflicting source source after conflicting source up until the March thirty first premier of the thirty ninth season of keeping up occurred Ashi, and so, you know, like we're gonna keep getting conflicting sources until we know the truth. And even the truth is not really something to believe, we should always be skeptical of Carter. Well, the funny part about the story. I thought was when her line got deleted off kylie's website like immediately. Well, it went on sale and people did it'd been on sale before. But it was like the only thing on sale, which was shady. I mean, they all what's Larry is. They all are so good at feeding into it. Like Molina's commenting and Instagram chloe's commenting on Instagram, Kim, posting shady videos of herself singing like, you know, about cheating men, everyone chloe's posting inspirational quotes about moving on and being, you know, the bigger person or whatever it's it's the corrections. Just very hard for me these days because it's like I I don't necessarily wanna give Kris Jenner the credit. I think people like wanting to give her like, oh and other Kris Jenner masterwork. Like, yeah. I think she's powerful. And I think she is clever, but I don't necessarily think she's as smart as we sometimes think she is sometimes things just happened. And I think this to me sort of. Seems like something that happened. And they're trying to milk it like, I don't know that this was planned. I don't know that this was I don't know. Really don't think that they would throw Jordan under the bus like this. There's got to be other things up their sleeves. Maybe not. I don't know. I mean, it's so difficult to say, I mean feeling still reeling from the Jesse smell at thing in terms of leg truth versus fiction, and like what people are capable of in terms of like kind of obviously not comparing these two stories they're wildly different. But in terms of just like somebody famous claiming something, and the, you know, the world kind of siding with them. And then you kind of starting to suspect that something might be upper like, this seems a little bit the timeline scenes off, or why would this happen this way, you know? And it's one of those things where I guess as a celebrity loving podcast. We're going to lean in like tell you the story, but I also feel like you have to kind of see the mechanism behind the. The madness. Yeah. It's I just I do think that this is yet another signifier that this empire is on its last legs when they're leaning on Jordan woods of all people for the drama. And also, this my last thing, I'll say is that this didn't have this didn't happen before she had before she closer gap. Right. So Jordan, we last talked about her because she closed her gap, which is shocking, and this happened saying, she can't gap. You're the gap my favorite one of my favorite things headlines about this is from people headline, Kylie, Jenner and Jordan woods got friendship tattoos almost three years before cheating. Of course. They did. They got tattoos three years. They got they got best friend twos. When they were teenagers. Great. Thank you. It's just so funny three years ago. They're like three years before the end, she cheating scandal. Is because they were friends we get another great headline. Jordan woods face of regret revealed as she is whisked away from event while her career life of luxury and close bond with Kylie Jenner hangs in the balance over cheating scandal, the Daily Mail is just like takes a photo of her in a car hoodie off. That's all you can see her capless teeth. You know, it's tough because it really is one of those things where these two were very authentically. Good friends like in terms of they had a show together, Kylie, you know, trotted her out at every event like took her with her. She was like helping to raise the child the kid supposedly because Travis Scott's on tour. So like, you know, she just like acted as close pound confidante co babysitter or whatever. And so there's a lot of headlines like went what the Kardashian stink la- happened with Kylie, Jenner and Jordan woods friendship amid the Tristan Thompson scandal. So everyone's kind of like they're going to Cali gonna forgive her. Like, we're going to put this on Tristan. But so far we have not. No, we have not Tristan sort of been left out of the narrative and a way that I find annoying. It takes two to Tango take to to angle. It really does take unless you're unless you're enough. You know, a Selma Blair movie Neff Campbell movie, and it takes three in which case it takes three. Well, barely even get that out of my mouth that was so bad after tonight three of us not to be seen. After tonight. Well. We're your way. It was such a bad joke that it knew it. I wanna give some brief updates because we have some brief updates number one maranda Lambert. Seems preg-. I believe this woman seem this woman who we've been following closely since the shocking shotgun wedding or surprise wedding. Shoutout. Saddle trans on Instagram. Who is this like hilarious? We talked about her last week. This woman who sells her wares on Instagram and still does even whenever she's doing a really lengthy story about Miranda Lambert, it will be peppered with like by necklace, or like, whatever whatever she makes. Well, what's interesting is that this woman, how did she get this role in the first place of being the Randall? She's just she's a local local, she's a local, and she knows a local a Nashville scene person on the country music as friends with people who are the way that it's suggestion, Iran. She is friends with women whose lives have been. Ruined by random Lambert. So she's had. But what's what's interesting is the story has continued because she basically by doing this has opened her DM's to every person who lives in Staten Island. So now, she's getting all the Staten Island people who are friends with at the hot baby mamas slash ex-fiancee. That's two different women not the same woman. Now, they're all sliding into her DM's, and she's literally just reading her dams, which is honestly become insane. It's not even her information any more. It's like she's getting shoes from Scott, and she is just like showing the photos of hot cop at a baby shower showing the photos of hawk up and these women that like. They have to be from the source, right? Unless we're getting played to an extent that I can't even imagine when Kayla the mother of his child found out he was engaged and was very pregnant at the time and contacted Jackie. I don't know how she found out. And so I can't speak to light that situation. I can't imagine being either of those women in just I can't think of a more morally conflicting, and like her breaking scenario, just Paul. Engagement comes to an end. And then he just continues his relationship with the mother of his child. They were living together. They were about to be parents together. Had they were building nursery to get other having baby showers together. Everything was together. They're very much together. And then he met ran Lambert while they were still together he had a child while they were still together. And for all intents of purposes, it sounds like they were together up until end of November while he was getting this other relationship with Miranda going, I think so I mean, these are a lot of like really upset like bidder people in like not in a bad way like coming forward. And being like, this is so fucked up you it's just like this guy is such a such an apparent sleaze that I think seeing the string of women that he's left behind and then like, especially the pregnancy that the baby that he had with another one right before meeting Randa suggests to all not just this woman, saddle tramp brand not just her, but suggests to his exes that he. Doc Miranda Lambert up like that's what everyone thinks. I'm I I'm convinced as well. The other damning thing from this new information dump is that she was falling the baby, mama. Miranda was falling the baby mama on Instagram and following the kids hash tag, which I don't support a child's name hashtag. But apparently the child had a hashtag name, and you can follow hashtags on Instagram. Miranda was following up until she so I think the day before the marriage news dropped and then she was no longer following them. So this woman Asian coming here. I feel like we shouldn't even you know, spend too much time because of its so what this woman is saying is that she suspects that was an intimidation tactic on the part of Miranda say like don't say anything or something which I'm not sure I believe I believe it's more like this associate Pathak behavior. I'm not. I'm not sure like what could Miranda really do. And that's no because I don't think necessarily the girl new why maranda it wasn't intimidating. It was just like what I think it was random Lambert being like, oh, yeah. You're though, right. Like, I don't even think like because they I don't think that maybe this girl even knew that hurt ya her the father of her child was dating Morand lamb, the speculation goes a little far there. But if it is true that Moran was following these women and the hashtag, that's. Insane behaviour. I don't know that it's been timid -ation tactic. But I think it's insane behavior. Also, I wanna correct you implied that the hot cop was not at the salad dumping incident. He was he was at the salad dumping incident. Because if you listen to the nine one one call the caller says there is out of state cop here with maranda Lammert. And you're like clearly that's hot cop. The sources just described him as older than he is which is a fun piece of shade. There was a young guy in an old guy gotten a fight. The young guy was a hot cop, and the old guy was the the old guy that they were talking about. And they got an argument, which is shows these these hot head this hotheaded other. I mean, honestly, that's how we're going to come out with this. As like, they truly are both equally a problem. Now. My problem. Thank god. It's not my problem. You know, what is my problem? Shut up. You know, what is my? Travel. Ben, Ben and shook us are back to gather. And that it's just going to ruin my fee. Are you sure they're back together? Not just like meeting up for a cough, e I mean, this is how you date in LA, you meet up in the Bentley you go get coffee together at that is dating when you are famous, and they're not just being up for job at a catch up over old times just for old time sake. No, I don't think. So I mean, the people source says like they're just hanging out. They enjoy they enjoy company know that love Israel between the two of them. Like, I do find nothing more romantic than two of the big picture of to them in dark car holding coughing occur down that street with two Starbucks. Got me going. Smiling at the camera. Shook us loves this shook it's happy. It's like nice. She's like probably happy. They're back together. I hope so she never drank Java. She doesn't like drinking job alone their arms around each other. That's old. No, they were just like in a car sitting together. Yes. A she was did you the thought of her and Halsey sweatshirt know why she's at Halsey sweatshirt because she's an SNL Booker like her holiday sweatshirt. Yes. I think they had to make because it's Halsey SNL. They made them for for the crew every they must make sweatshirts every every week thing. A new sweatshirt you don't need to sweat your. I don't know. Why would the outlier Bohol Z? What like if they make one for halls even make one for everyone? Well, devastator that's like SNL anyone else. But Hosie link words, why would you want the mother of once casual look was complete with gray sneakers? Some aviator sunglasses on them. Love shy like them. I love that. I love that shook us getting attention. Again. I missed shook us I shook us is good for bad. I feel like she's better for Ben Sean Sexton, though, what do I know? Also, it's great for our punning because we really miss saying that she is where shook, you know, because shook us is back greens shuck, you know. No, yeah. Okay. What's next? Well, I'm about to slam denial limited. I love this headline. Harry Hamlin lease arena, slam Nicolette Sheridan denial. She cheated story is ages old, and we are still talking about it like when did this alleged cheating happened in the eighties. Right and the area's really funny. It's that like, Michael, it's it's a Harry ham. Harry Hamlin and nNcholas Sheridan. Married and nNcholas shirted went to Michael Bolton concert and never came home. And it's all areas story like she literally was like swept off her feet by Michael Bolton and Michael Bolton. It's like it's like the really A-List easy. And like, even though it's about heterosexual people like queer version of he went to a Michael like he went out for cigarettes and never came home. It's true. And like, so basically what happened was on the real housewives like premier or the second episode. I don't know. I'm like, I'm definitely watching it. But like I don't remember Lisa venom made a joke that like thanks to Nicolette Sheridan. She has Harry like she was making a joke. She was like, oh, well thank God like lick the, blah, blah, blah, like because that's how I got my hairy. You know, it's thick God, blah, blah, blah, literally was kind of she kind of retold the story to like, Denise Richards. I think because I think like went to these Richard showed up they're all like fake introducing themselves in this weird way. Whatever my point is then Twitter, then like they all got on Twitter. And we're like yelling at each other nickel was like I did not and Lisa. Like you. Sure did like I don't have the tweets in front of me, and you don't have a link here. But like they were all screaming at each other. I mean slash tweeting each other, and it's hilarious because it's like the funniest story that no one agrees on it's like well digital hook up with Michael Bolton after the concert or did you not? And then where does Michael Bolton come in? Well, Michael Bolton. Okay. So. Nicolette went to the Michael Bolton concert while Harry was still up at our place in Canada, which is now our place, but it was his place and she came home early. She went to the Michael concert, and then she never came home. Oh my God. She loves Michael Bolton. So she basically left Harry Hamlin for Michael Bolton. Oh my God. And I say thank you always to Michael Bolton. And I say thank you Michael Bolton because without Michael Bolton. I would not have these beautiful children. I would not have my husband. And I always say thank you Michael Bolton. I went up to him at the polo a couple years ago, and I knelt on my knees. And I said Michael after thank you for my life. You know, what this genius? You know, what he said what you're welcome. It's it's they've been holding this for way too long. And this has the right? This news has no this this still making headlines twenty nineteen but it keeps happening and that headline is duration. Harry hamlin. Lease arena slammed Nikola shirt denial. She cheat with Fulton. And then you click it, and it's just like eight tweets embedded in a story. It's like how. This the happening. Lisa renna. I mean, we talked about how I mean. I just talked about how I don't think Kris Jenner how I think Kris Jenner gets too much credit. I think Lisa rent. It doesn't get enough. Lisa Renna is out here, like really manipulating really manipulating Twitter like Christian or wishes. Chris doesn't tweet really need to. But lisa. No. She has to tweet yet. Lisa is good. Let's just like this only just rates on these tweets because they really are that good hearing Hamlin so nigga Sharon tweeted, a fake news or something. She tweeted fake news. I dunno whatever. And then hairy tweeted re fake news. What's it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to bed with pop singer two weeks after your mother dies? I did a lot of stuff with my wife nose to nose, but ending our marriage was not one of them. And at least a repeated in wrote sweetie Nikolett at nicollet at I am Nicolette. You're the gift that keeps on giving their thanking her like jokingly, and then she return. Tweeted haring wrote do you really want the truth shared? I appreciate that. You wanna support your housewives fake news narrative, but the end of our marriage had nothing to do with anyone other than us sad. You can't own your part. I mean, I think what Niklas kind of implying there. They had a bad relationship. Anyways. Like, that's why this all kind of tumbled which can be true at the same time. It is true that she hooked up with Michael Bolton Michael Bolton concert. You know what I mean? Likes Hollywood bowl too. That's fun. She's like thank you Michael Bolton. Also wanna thank Michael Bolton. I always want to what is it? It's gone silent. Silence. Like who's talking about me can't hear it's gone silent? Good Instagram, Kylie, Larry with you live Crump's island. Crump silent. Let's talk about Lausanne we cut it out of the podcast and put it on the Pattaya on. And it is sort of interesting just because it was we were so obsessed with little and then he starts dating this. He leaves Noah Cyrus starts dating a woman named AMI Smith, which is the most boring name I've ever heard my whole life. It was like the the the the visual effects people for I man, and he thanked his two children, John. And James, and I was like, that's what you named your boys come on just like very boring. Very boring names. Anne Smith is allegedly like five weeks pregnant with little baby, and she's trying to become like a YouTube influence or because of it. We were sort of bored by them until record scratch yesterday. Hold onto your butts allegations have arisen that little an anti Smith. Little miss boring, anti Smith are faking the pregnancy and the proof that was found is the funniest proof and most convincing proof I've ever seen that someone is faking pregnancy and of the clip of Lille's Lausanne. Showing the ultrasound of the baby of these people found it's so good. These people found that exact ultrasound in a really quick Google search of like ultrasound nine weeks insane. It's like it's literally the foot like it is the photo like these sort of irregularities on weird splotches. I don't think our that. That's no way coincidental. So I believe that immediately. Yes. Believe it that is a fake ultrasound. The baby is fake. I don't believe for one second that she is. There's a few things that could be happening here. Right. Maybe she's faking it, and he doesn't maybe they're both faking it so like press, but I gotta say as somebody who thought to KOTA Johnson was pregnant seven years ago and turns out not pregnant you don't have a baby nine months later. Guess you're not pregnant. Remember when we thought to go to John Lewis pregnant, we were like nine months bitch. And like what she's not fragment God. But even this Tra sound the the little green dot that's in it. It's all the same. It's Google only find a last the last option I had. So there's there was too. But there's one more is that she printed these out just to have something to show, which doesn't make any sense. But sometimes you need a visual. You get a visual fair. That's fair. That's fair. That's re-. It's really really fun. You know? And also people think that little Anna Noah Cyrus relationship was fake because they were set up by me, we're like kind of also suspicious of. But so there are a lot of things going on. You know, you really can't deny showing a photo you googled, that's we gotta like we gotta get over that people keep doing that. Don't you know that people can do that? Also, you are not the only one with Google. No, no version of this is better than which is not even the exact same. But my favorite version of like posting a photo that you obviously just googled and didn't just have on your phone is me Farrow and her black children. Oh, that's my favorite one. Can you tell can you explain that? Me affair wish. Happy birthday to one of her daughters. And the photo that she put on Instagram was a screen, grab of a safari like us mobile safari page that had like the photo for child on it. But you could still see the key words in the small letters where she had searched and the search query was Mia Farrow and her black children, which she would she explained away and said like, oh that was a screen shot. I got from my friend who said how my. Played to my search fairly. You're still search me of Erna back children. Never when I don't believe it number two, Mia Farrow, and her black children is exactly the sort of like wild and specific language old people use on Google, they just speak into it fairly plant. Oh my God. It's so funny. So I'm calling. I'm calling me affair under black children on this pregnancy scandal. You're calling me. Affirmative like children that you're calling the scandal. You're saying the Meryl Streep museum my hands him out me black blackjack God that was from the Oscars raid. Yeah. Like two years ago may have. That's what I'm calling here. All right. So you're calling this pregnancy fake you're saying fake. Finally, this has something to do with us. I feel like I'm so glad we didn't actually put. I mean, all the patriots. You got to hear us talk about this for the first time. But now, we're like, you know, what we found something that's truly relevant to who we leave which is this fake Asil or sound fixing fishing pregnancy with Google I love it. Let's do REBA. But she wary where was she seen? She posted. Why on Graham, she's the who clean ten? Onto. The the. What's Rita ORA up to who is this woman? This is there's not much Rita this. Although I didn't look today. There's really not much to this week the Oscar sort of out did it. But there is she was she was at the Vanity Fair Oscar party number one. She looked great. I will say that. Goss- share it. A what? Says teed bid to share who cares tidbit from Oscar party when I left Mick Jagger was hitting on Rita ORA. Oh, that's the via via that's like a passed on little gos- for us. I'm not surprised at all. Are you kidding? That's perf. She looked. She looked great. She was an Shannon McQueen excuse me huddle. But show him, but showing? Well, she was like a sort of a shift some nut. She had some bite. Look great. But my favorite story is about read or my favorite servant read. Or is this headline Rita ORA still does chores. And where do I see the story and the website and the Idaho county free press, which is I'd Aho Idaho's oldest weekly newspaper even there on the Rita ORA beat. Well, here's what I'm going to say to slightly DeMarcus a little bit. I think this might be like a rerun piece because I just searched Rita ORA chores and also showed up on the post bulletin, a Kate Minnesota's newspaper association's two thousand nineteen daily newspaper of the year, which could be a fake newspaper. And I think they're all taking it. I think they're all like aggregating it from this other website because it says so it says of VERA VERA or redes- mom told Hello magazine. Like, she didn't interview with Hello magazine. And these are all like being taken from that. But it's the same. And they were like, she cleans the kitchen everyone. No. But she says blitz. Incredible to take out Rita ORA. Does chores from that? So then we have wheat search Rita ORA. Still does chores. It was posted on Idaho county free pest free press WD E, L dot com. The courier express dot com. ABC FOX Mentana dot com. Sedalia democrat daily local dot com in Fernie dot com. Kokomo perspective dot com index journal. So basically like the these fake slash real news sites. Aggregated this Rita ORA. Does chores story. And now it's everywhere which is legendary on this lane. It is that's great anyways. Rida or does chores. What else did she do aside from shores stole the spotlight? She stole the spotlight and normal at just the enormous headline really makes me laugh referring to her clothes as enormous is hysterical to me Rita, ORA steals. The spotlight in enormous ruffled romper which was good because she. It was just a normal romper. Right. And looked like. The shorts on whatever. But then there was just enormous. And that's the opposite of a romper robbers are small they're small all of your fashion. Take this robber was big. Offer should be small what else about Reto. Or are we done with her? Mean forever? No, we'll never be done with her. No, we are done with Rita. She unfortunately was not at the Oscars. But she definitely went to all the parties. If you have any of that Rita gos- from the parties other than that, Mick Jagger was hitting on her please call the hot line that is rita's sweet spot the party's not at the ceremony. But at all of the parties forest like she's gonna miss some good ass. Parties. Are you getting? Not. So thank you to everyone for listening. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter weekly come to our tour. We're going to Minneapolis Milwaukee and Cleveland this weekend Chicago in Detroit in next weekend. Minneapolis better show up. I'm going to be so pissed. Yeah. And we will see you on Friday with another episode of who's there? Six nine who them calls with questions comments and Rita ORA sightings? And we'll see that by you. They wanted. No. Pain. How'd you listen it?

The energy industry is committed to reducing emissions and building a better future. To learn more text energy to seven three zero seven five from WHYY in Philadelphia. This is fresh air. I'm David being Cooley in for Terry gross. The new film bohemian rhapsody is about Freddie, Mercury in the band Queen today. Our interview with the band's guitarist, Brian May who wrote we will rock you. He says the band began to realize its audiences liked to participate. So he and FREDDY decided to embrace that in their songs he went away that night and to the best of minorities wrote, we are the champions. We've got in mind. I went away woke up the next morning with his. In my mind. I was thinking to myself what could you give an audience that they could do? Well, they standing they can stamp, and they can clamp, and they can sing some kind of John Bryan may will tell us more about Queen and his life after the band. Also, Justin Chang reviews. The new cone brothers film. The ballad of BUSTER Scruggs. One one. That's the band. Swing. The subject of the new movie bohemian rhapsody, starring Rami Malik is queens lead. Singer, freddie. Mercury. Brian May a founding member and the band's lead guitarist spoke with Terry gross in two thousand ten back then he was concerned with a different kind of dust in two thousand seven he submitted his doctoral thesis in astrophysics on the subject a survey of radio velocities, and there's diarrheal dust cloud. He is now doctor may and served as chancellor of Liverpool. John Moores university from two thousand eight until twenty thirteen but that's not the only twist in his career that might surprise Queen fans in two thousand nine he co wrote a book a village lost and found that features stereoscopic photos from the eighteen fifties to see these very early three d photos, you have to assemble and look through a viewer that Brian May designed which comes with the book. Last year. He published a three D book about Queen. An updated version was released last month. In May's life as a member of Queen he's famous for some of his guitar solos. And for writing one of the band's biggest hits we will rock you. That's the song. They're developing in this clip from bohemian rhapsody. The band is waiting for mercury. Who's played by Rami Malik to show up at a recording session. Brian May played by Gwilym Lee is teaching the drummer and the bass player the stomp stomp, clap for we will rock you. Then mercury walks in. Stem to this beat. Come on. Clap on the third thing. What's going on? You know, if you're on time, I want to give the audience a song that they can perform. So what can I do? Imagine thousands of people doing this Niessen. What's the Larry? Right. Mate? What a pleasure to have you here. Welcome to fresh air. Terry have to tell you in preparation for this interviewers listening back to lot of Queen recordings and thinking about how much fun. Some of them aren't have dramatic some of them are and. How they mixed like hard, rock and music theater and opera thought would start this part of the interview with the most famous on that you wrote which is we will rock you. So let's hear a little bit of it. Then what? Oh, okay. Big industry. Big. Got on your place. These jay. Industry. It being this waving. That's queens. We will rocky which is written by my guest. Brian May who was the lead guitarist for the band. So what what inspire that song? I mean, it's been played at so many sports stadiums over the decades. What what were you thinking about when you wrote it were you thinking of it as sports anthem? No, not really I was thinking that it's more of a as a rook anthem, I suppose it and the means of uniting audience or. Taking advantage. You know, enjoying the fight that an audience is United, and I didn't realize it would transfer to to sports games. This is quite a an amazing thing. It's it's it's wonderful for me to to see what we will rookie has done. You know, we were real cute, and we the champions, of course, have kind of transcended the normal. Framework of whimsey is is listened to an appreciated become part of public life, which I feel wonderful about it's fantastic to me. If I go to you know, a football game or soccer game or boss. Get Bulla whatever would anyplace all around the world. And there it is good. Most people don't even realize that I wrote it most people don't realize that it was written. It's sort of become one of those things that people think was always they you know, it sort of goes back into prehistory. So in a way, that's that's the best compliment. You could have Wilson. I think you know. That's if people don't even realize it was written. It's in part because it almost sounds like an old school cheerleader cheer, you know, because that's because stump stump clap thing. And because it's a chant. Well, it's dumps clapping people. Think was always there. But I see it wasn't an I don't know how it got into my head. All I can tell you. We played a gig. Middle of a career in a place called Bingley hole near Birmingham Birmingham. Is this sort of home of heavy metal as you probably know Sabbath and slate and people come from the, and it was a great night people just the the audience were just responding hugely. And they was singing along with everything we did in the beginning. We didn't relate to that. We would kind of light to be listened to things. Seriously. People singing alone wasn't part of our agenda having having said that and then having experienced this wave of participation of the audience in particularly in the gig in Birmingham. We almost to a man sort of reassessed situation. I remember talking to Freddie about insane. Look, you know, obviously, we can no longer fight is this has to become something which is part of our show, and we have to embrace it. And the fact that people want to participate and really everything becomes a two way process now, and we sort of looked at each other and went how. Interesting, and he went away that night, and to the best of minorities wrote, we are the champions with that in mind. I went away and woke up the next morning with these. In my mind, some have because I was thinking to myself what what could you give an audience that? They could do. Well, a standing there will crush together they can stamp, and they can clamp, and they can sing some kind of chance for some reason. It just came straight into my head that we will wrote. So how did you record the stump stump clap? So it would sound grand and reverberating as opposed to three people for for people stomping their feet and clapping. Well, I'm a physicist you see. So I had this idea if we did it enough times we didn't use any Riva or anything that I could build a sound which would work. We were very lucky. We working in an old disused church in north London. And it already had a nice sound not an echoey sound, but a nice big crisp sound to it. And there was some old boards lying around what they were. But they seemed ideal to stamp on. So he's kind of piled them up and studied stamping and they sounded great anyway. But being a physicist I thought we'll supposing there were a thousand people doing this. What would be happening? And I thought will you would be hearing them them stamping. You would also be hearing a little bit of a an an effect which is due to the the distance that they are from you. So I put lots of individual repeats on not an echo, but a single repeat and at varying distances and the distances will prime none. Numbers now much later on people designed a machine to do this. And I think it was cool primetime was on the, but that's what we did is we recruited each trying. We put a delay of a certain length on it. None of the delays word of harmonic Lee related. So what you get is. There's no echo on. It was so ever. But the the clap sound is though that the spread around the stereo, but they're also kind of spread as regards distance from you. So you just feel like you in the middle of large number of people, stamping boards and clapping. That's amazing singing. Now, here's another really interesting thing to me about we will rock you. It's it's the most famous song that you've written. It's a largely acapella song you come in for your Tarso Ethel very end. So until like, the very very end like you're not even playing on it. And it it's kind of amazing that you as the stars would write a song that you're barely featured on well featured stamping well feet, and you're very good at that. To. Yeah. Well, we're over what do you see Soames out about guitars to me songs are about? Truthfully song is about a singer in my opinion. And if the singer gets the idea across then you're you're almost home and dry. You know, you can make the most beautiful piece of production. And I love production pre productions big big part of my life. But I'm always aware that if you don't have the right singer. And he doesn't have the right? You're wasting your time. So song is a song to me. And it doesn't matter. What Sony it could be a piano accordion on the NF? It's the right soul in the right thing. And you feel passion. That's what it's about that gets us. I didn't want us to be standard in wanted to be like, oh, here's Utah. So and then we sing another verse. I wanted it to be something stock and different. So it was very deliberate that I left the guitar solo to the end just because that was a final statement and a different statement taking off in a completely different ration-. It changes key into that piece to you know. So it's it's it's a whole different kind of if it was not a standard pop song. Okay. So let's just hear the end of we will rock you'll hear that. I saw here. So that's the end of we will rock you written by my guest guitarist and singer songwriter. Brian May who was one of the founding members of of Queen. So she can I come in on the end of that. Yeah. Please interesting that you play the end of the of the song, you can hear the guitar waiting in the wings that was you can hear this. Little feedback note present alerts not taking center stage, also the loss choruses, and then finally burst upon the scene. And you notice goes all right, which means he's kind of handing over to the tar and we're in a different universe once once guitar stars. And that was the intention, and he's very sort of informal, and you may notice there's a lot of things to notice you may notice that the loss piece, the very last little rifts are repeated, and they're not just repeated by me playing them again, they repeat by cutting the tape and splicing it on again, and again, so and that's deliberate to it's a way of getting sort of. A thing that makes you sit up towards the end. And then it stops. There is nothing after we really enjoy. There's no big ending it just stops leaves you in mid air thinking, we'll what happened. The Queen is such an unusual mix of hard rock music theater and an author on opera in into that. And when you consider your average hard rock fan of the seventies and eighties. I was a most of them would be. Totally not carrying about music theatre or opera. And I it's it's it's the prising that you've that you were all able to mix that together in a way that really just went over so big with hard rock fans. I mean, do you do you agree that that's an unusual mix? It is an unusual mix. Again. It wasn't really deliberated wasn't planned. We've just sort of letting out all the stuff. That's inside us. I think as kids we were exposed to all kinds of stuff, you know, my parents were into classical music, and I heard a lot of that around me is growing up in radio when we were kids was incredibly different from what it was from. What it is today? I think our favorite program was max children's favorites. I love English people will tell you this. Kids would write in and request them using. But it wasn't rock music. It wasn't put music because it sort of didn't exist in those days. People would write in an offer something like the fund lightning, polka, the laughing policeman or some kind of New Orleans jazz, you know, all sorts of stuff was mixed in when we were kids, and we just laughed meant of owning you probably don't know who meant. No, yes, I do. Okay. He had the singing strings, and it would be a vast sort of panoply of filings and chillers violas at such and that was all influential on us. I know for this all comes out in a music. So. On the one hand, we're in for with spurred on by hearing, the beginnings of wrote music buddy, Holly lessees Har, you know, thank God for buddy, Holly, the crickets, that's just moved. My my buddy into wanting to do this. And but on the other hand is all these stuff, which we'd been absolving his absorbing his kids and all of creeps back into our music. When you teamed up with Freddie, Mercury who is of course, the lead singer of the late lead singer of Queen. Did he nevertheless, poof, push you in directions? Are you nudge in directions that you didn't expect to head in musically? Theatrically costumes. Well, definitely costumes. Yeah. Pretty was. I remember when I saw us play before he was in our band as we were called smiling. He came along. These cities is wonderful incredible. You music's right? But you know, you don't dress. Right. You know, and you don't have enough lights, and you don't dramatic. You should be doing a show. You know, Freddie, was very influential in moving across into being something much more FIA trickle most more designed to connect with an audience. And it was a great thing. If Freddie brought a lot of things to us. We I'm sure otherwise, we never would have considered. So let me ask you about the name of the band Queen. How did you feel about giving it that name, Freddie? Mercury. You're going back a long way. Now, let me. Freddie. Mercury was was either gay or bisexual? I'm not sure how he would have described himself. But he didn't really talk about that. You would've said definitely donning what he did say that in would have said that in public. He did say that in public, Freddie, was not one to mince his words. So, but but the name of the band like there's so many homophobic, hard rock fans there were in the seventies. And eighties. How do they feel about pretty well, you know, it's it's strange. I think it was a sort of an undiscussed thing for such a long time. And really, you know, the truth is nobody should care. Why should anybody care what sort of sexual persuasion? People. Have you know, he never hid the fact that he was he was turned on by men's instead of by women, but strange, I don't think it was always the case because I used to you know, in the we used to share a room. So I know who Freddie within the early days, and they weren't and. So so, but I think it sort of gradually changed, and I have no idea how these things work, but it wasn't really anybody's business. But his, you know, and we never talked about it as if it was anything important. Why should it be important? We just made music together. As for the fans. I dunno. You know, it was never really discussed. But I remember doing a promo tour for this song that we did which was cold. I wanna break free. Now, we made a video for that. Which was a pass teach of an English soap cooled Coronation Street, and we dressed up as the characters in that, soap, and they were female characters. So we dress not was as goes as women and we had a fantastic love doing. It was hilarious to do it and all around the will people loft, and they got the joke, and they they sort of understood I remember being on the promo to in the mid west of America and people's faces turning ashen. And they they would say we can't play this weekend plus play this. You know, it looks homosexual went so. But it was a huge deal. And I know that it really damaged our sort of whole relationship with certainly radio in this country and probably the Israeli and that, and that's probably one of the reasons why they sort of hold developed between us, and then the which was really a tragedy because so many of our hits would have been would have fitted very well into the life of the sites, but we didn't really get back in there until show must go on these days of our lives. And even those the hits that they were around the rest of the world was number one records around every civilized country. Brian May speaking to Terry gross in two thousand ten Queen the rock group featuring him as lead guitarist is the subject of the new movie bohemian rhapsody, starring Rami Malik as Freddie Mercury. After a break. We'll continue their conversation. And film critic Justin Chang will review. The new cone brothers film, a western and Thalji collection called the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs.

I think we should play here Baheen rhapsody, which is perhaps the most theatrical. Little bohemian rhapsody of very cool. Isn't it? Yes. Yeah. This is Freddie's great baby. And yes, we'll contributed to the way developed in the studio. But really it was so much constructed in his head before he ever stepped in the how did he demo the song for you before we the band started performing? He sat down at the piano. Do d did he did it? And and he said here's a bit with everything stops in acapella bit. And then we come back in again, he had it all mapped out. And that's the way it was done. The backing track was piano bass and drums, and I was sitting in the studio, and it sounded great intriguing and crisp and lively and challenging and then as the days went on on the weeks went on we studied over dubbing all the the different vocal ponts. And as you probably know, you know, there's many of us on there. We would do each part. A number of times until it was right? And then go to another pot and multi-track everything in those days you working on twenty four track tape. So you run out of tracks quite quickly. So when you put down say Hoffa doesn't trikes you have to bounce them. You have to combine them into one track. And then move on which is dicey process because you losing information at that point euro, saluting generations. And we did it so often on human rhapsody, the the legend says, and it's true the type war out. We suddenly realized we were losing talk on the vocals they were getting a bit. Dull we held the tape up to the light, and you could see through it. So we there was haughty and yoke side left on it. So that point we swiftly had to make a copy and carry on. So it was a very different way of recording to the way. You would do it now because there was no going back. Now, you mentioned that this started as a piano, and then piano, bass and drums, but you do have a good tar solo. A very one sided off to. Yes. Yeah. And any kind of bridges two sections of the song. And so I thought we'd hear an excerpt of the song and here here, you're Qatar Selam bridging those dissections, so here's queen's bohemian rhapsody with my guest Brian May on guitar and also doing some voices. I see. Moshe? New, but he loves me. Let me go. That's green. But he mean rhapsody with featuring my guess Brian May on guitar, and how many voices did you do on that? I have to go back and check. But a lot lot. A few dozen. Yeah. A lot of voices on there because we sing normally this three of us in me, and Freddie, and Roja would sing John wouldn't and we would sing one line until we felt it was right? It had the right spontaneity at the right passion. And it was in tune it was in time. And then we'd move on a double track it until jacket again. So you go three times three voices at that point for one pot. You go nine voices for each. Then in some cases, there were I suppose between six and nine parts on the record. So you multiply that together. And you get a, you know, well, you know, about eighty trikes something like that, I suppose, but there by the time you've good IT trikes. They've all been bounced down and the information is contained on on much fewer tracks. Could you explain to me what the mama Mia Galileo scary moosh part is about no, uh-huh? Not could mercury have excited. Yeah. Did you would never ask him? Why wouldn't you have asked him? What am I singing about? Why am I saying, you know, he's a funny thing? I think about it quite a lot. We never discussed. What us owns meant. It was a sort of unwritten law that there was something in the psalms, which was very personal. And if somebody brought it in you wouldn't get into it. You would just assume that they knew what they were doing. And it's all it, isn't it. I mean later on it changed. I remember starting to write the show must go on and Freddie came and sat down beside me. And I said I want you to participate when I wanted to do this together, and we absolutely discussed every single would. And what it meant them what we would trying to do. But in the in the early days it never ever happened. We just assumed that the writer of the song knew what he was doing. So let me just play. You one thing that I'm sure you're familiar with here comes. Go the little bohemian, rhapsody, gentlemen. Good. Call. But delightful Wayne's world. Mike Myers for the movie ways have to thank introducing to a whole new generation at that time. It was amazing. What it did? What did it do for Queen? Oh, it completely translated us to the to the new generation, and Freddie was already not well by that time. But I took it round to Mike might his phone me up. And sent me the copy and said, you know, you make sure FREDDY his could you and I said, yes, I took it around to him. And I'm Freddie loved it. He loved and thought it was great. And even as what he said was slightly unprincipled, but you can bleep if you like. He said, you know, we we had a strange thing about America. Because America's way, we grew up, you know, and it really made us as a group all that to release to to every year about nine months and most of it was in the states in in those early days, so really formed us as van we absolutely had a love affair with America. The came appoint when it all kind of went wrong in America. And we will the biggest group in the world every place except the states, and I don't need to go into it. You know, the reason whatever it doesn't really matter, but it was very difficult for us to sort of get back, and there's a whole kind of gap in Queen history. If you've you it from America, and Freddie was very aware of that. And we never really came back and toured the way we have done, you know, every place else in the world we played football stadiums. But it never happened in the states, and Freddie when I played him. This thing said. He said, you know, you might do for us. What what nothing else would do? And he was dead. Right. You know, it's amazing that even the fact that Freddie, died didn't make that much of a difference. But the fact that Wayne's world put it in the film did make a difference. And I suppose the quote that I'm that. I'm steering clear of is that, Freddie, at one point said to me, you know, I suppose I'll have to die before we ever get big in America again. Oh, and it's a strange quote. But it it sort of came true in in a very strange way. But Wayne's world was was the vehicle through which young people discovered Queen, you know, a whole new set of young people. It was great for us. You know, and I guess tilles have have you heard the Muppets version? News, of course. Yeah. Really fun. Can I can I play that for our listeners? What we had if we had to vote it because it's it's us on the record. You know, they they asked us if they could do it. And they said we can sing this, and we can perform it. But we can't really play. It's come we use your actual tracks. Generally, we say, generally, we don't let anybody do that. But in this case because it's the venerable muftis we said, yes, we will. We'll do that with you. So yes, we produced it with them. It's so much fun. So here's here's part of it. I do. Boy, nobody loves me. Busy, easy, go. Let me go. That'd be Gerald.

Just a few years ago. You got your PHD in a subject that you had been pursuing before Queen. And that's astro-physics. You have an Astro physics book that you co wrote recently and gold bang history of the universe. So on the seeming it'll talk life, you it's it's interesting interesting for me to think about you going back to the university after you'd become such a star. Of course, when you get your it's not like you're sitting in a large lecture class with people. But. Well, basically it is. Yeah. I didn't do that many nights. But basically, you're you're banning your status outside and you going back and you being a student. It was tough. What was hard about that? What is tough because you you having to be very much subservient to the system again, you know, and you forget how holidays after you've left school and university, you know, to go back into that system where you're you're constantly judged, and you you're assessed as as you go along, and you do a piece of work, which you're proud of in somebody goes, well, yeah. But can you go back and do it again and do this in these in these it's frustrating and difficult, and it was tough? Let's say, but I I didn't want to be treated any different from any other student. I wanted this to be real. And it was you know, they didn't make it easy on me. I never wanted that. So it was tough. And I did it for a year and a really had to ditch the rest of my life to do it. But it was worth I'm happy that I go you. You wrote your thesis on. A survey of radical velocities in the Zodiacal dust cloud. I don't really know what any of that means. This is survey radial velocities in in the zone DIKO radio. I I wrote it as radical velocities? I still don't know what will be radical. Can you give a very lay person's description of what you were studying in? That of what you were the Ken. Yeah, I'm just it's a study of dust as simple as that is dust in this case in the solar system. So we're actually surrounded by it. The moves through a cloud of dust constantly a lot of it comes down to earth. And my experience was to try and find out the motions of that dust trying to figure out where it's going what he's doing where it came from. And what it means in terms of the creation of the solar system. Now to be honest. It was quite a it became something which people moved on from it became a bit of a backwater in the thirty years in which always absent from the subject because people were into really cause Mullarkey the largest scale study of the universe and local solar system was not so interesting for many people. But luckily for me about the time that I returned to it. We would discovering Exo planets that's planets in other solar systems. In orbit around other sons. So it was discovered at that time that they too had dust clouds. So if we're gonna study dust, why don't we why don't we study the dust on our own doorstep in our own Sonal system. So so my subject became quite trendy again, quite important for people the way, I studied them was through Doppler shifts and Doppler shift is shift of frequency that you experienced to motion the best way the best analogy, you can give is a police siren. If you're listening to a police car coming towards you goes Di Di Di Di, but as it goes pause to go Di Di Di Di Di Di day. It goes down. Shift and yeah that that's because the the waves stretching out as this police posses you, and and it changes from coming towards you going away from you. Now, the same kind of thing happens with light. So I was looking at Doppler shifts in light due to the motions of the dust soon from that you can infer how the how that they moving. So. Yes. So what were the larger implications of what you're looking at? It's a good question the lodge inflammations where did it come from? And was part of the creation of the universe. Or is it being created now the dust on the the dust? Yeah. In fact, it all of the above is true. You know, sediment of dusty is created in every event in in the universe, and particularly in supernova, a lot of dust is put out, and we human beings and all animals, and plants and everything the made of the dust that has come out of supernovae. That's something that I discovered, but that's that's a fact so in Joni Mitchell said we are stardust we are golden. She was right. We oughta st-, and I find that quite an amazing thing to think about the material of body did come from the insides of stars. It was made in the Incisa stars.

Ballad of BUSTER Scruggs is a feature length collection of six stories set in the old west featuring actors, including Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Zoe Kazan and time daily the movie is opening in select theaters for a week before. It begins streaming on Netflix. Film critic Justin Chang has this review. Joel and Ethan Coen heaven erotic body of work, but remarkably consistent worldview, so it's no surprise that. They're six part, western theology. The ballad of BUSTER Scruggs feels like both entirely coherent vision and something of a mixed bag. The vignettes are wildly divergent in quality. There are shaggy dog tails and grim morality plays and one violently over the top farce, and yet somehow they all seem to be telling the same story. Life is cruel and absurd comedy is indistinguishable from tragedy and fortune smiles on someone only to turn around and kick them in the gut that's more or less. What happens in the? Using first chapter which shares its title with the movie and tells the story of a wandering gunslinger and troubadour by the name of BUSTER Scruggs played by Tim, Blake Nelson BUSTER likes to stride into a saloon and shoot up. Anyone who gets in his way? He also likes to brag about his grisly exploits in songs and soliloquies that should be grating. But are instead weirdly charming, thanks to Nelson's good-humored grin and his habit of directly addressing the camera and his horse. Dan song never fails as my mind out here in the west where the distances are great and the scenery monotonous. Additionally, please in baritone seems in spirit old Dan here and keep them in good heart during the days measure hoof clocks ain't that right Dame? Maybe some of y'all heard me BUSTER Scruggs known to some as the San SABA song bird. You can hear the Coen brothers clever way with dialogue the way they revel in arch antiquated language while giving it their own playful Zing, the next two vignettes aren't quite as engaging. They're funny if unmemorable little doodles in the second chapter called near Donus James Franco plays a down on his luck Bank robber who ends up with his head and not one but two nooses in the third tale meal ticket Liam Niessen is a poor man's Pt. Barnum and his circus attraction a man with no arms and no legs, entertains crowds, by reciting, everything from Shelley's poem, ause Amandus to the declaration of independence. There's nothing poetic, however about how this chilly survival story plays out. The m Foley improves significantly with its fourth chapter all gold canyon, which stars a wonderful Tom waits as grumbling old prospector who strikes it rich in an unspoiled mountain valley only to realize he's not quite as alone as he thought this funny twisty little yard is also the most visually stunning of the six Bruno Delbonnel, immaculate cinematography no longer limited to parched. Desert landscapes pops to life in this world of blue skies. Green hills and nuggets of gold. This is followed by an excellent fifth story, but carefully plotted drama of a woman named Alice Longa ball played by terrific Zoe Kazan who embarks on the Oregon trail shortly after her brother's death one night by the campfire Alice approaches, the wagon trains to two leaders played by Bill, heck and Grainger Hines and asks them for help. I ask your advice. Mr not. Would you election supper oral coffee with us? Thank you. My hired boy, Matt. He told me that my brother problems his wages when we get to fort Laramie. What she said I was hundred dollars two hundred dollars half. Yes. And the other half when we get to the Willamette Valley. An extravagant wage. Is it you think the boys Tony story? No brothers. No longer had her. No. Rush. You might cringe at first when the characters are suddenly attacked by an indigenous tribe, though, I admired the Coen brothers for not shying away from one of the westerns more problematic depictions, the movie doesn't Vilnai's these warriors simply by knowledge in their presence. It reminds us that the other characters the one seeking a better life out west or digging for gold are trespassing on their terrain the last and Aereas of the stories. The mortal remains takes place almost entirely inside a stagecoach carrying five chatty characters played by actors, including time daily, Saul Rubenesque, and Brendan Gleeson the group's lively irritable. Bickering. Gradually takes on a darker more unsettling tone, anecdotes are exchanged and bizarre. Disclosures are made the coaches final destination would appear to be smack dab in the middle of Edgar Allan Poe territory that fatalism is nothing new for the Coen brothers who've made dark and despairing westerns. Before a classical one with true grit, a modern day one with no country for old men in the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs. They gleefully embraced the conventions and cliches of the John rea-, but to strangely melancholy even troubling affect as the Coens remind us with their usual impish wit and impeccable craft. There's still a lot of pleasure to be mined from those conventions. But there are lessons to be learned to the road that seems to stretch toward manifest destiny. Often leads to brutality and death.

Netflix Marvel Shows, Blumhouse, Captain Marvel, Property Brothers, Rambo & Bohemian Rhapsody

"However, when a welcome to slash on daily for Thursday, October eighteenth, two thousand eighteen until as episode room talked, but the latest film and TV news the slash film editor in chief Peter Saretta joining me to this podcast, slush home senior writer, then Pearson, hey, what's going on and writer? Why trend? Billy happy one. So Benue asked what's going on in the answer is nothing. Like the news has been like last week. It was a watt going on this week. It's next to nothing. Oh, before we get into the news, actually, I did want to read a quick listener Email or tweet the other day. I wondered why there were so many baseball movies in the early nineteen. Ninety s and a listener named rob, gee, wrote in basically explaining that MLB rented them out in the office, the rented out there, stadiums in the off season because in nineteen Ninety-three they had a strike and without games, they use the stadiums revenue in nineteen Ninety-four from Hollywood, so that that is why we got so many baseball movies in the early nineteen nineties according to rub. Gee, I've not obviously check this information. It was just because Kevin Costner was hugely famous in the nineties so that that could be as well. I mean, it could be a combination of things, but I do know that the strike did happen, and it does seem to correlate with a bunch of these movies being produced in ninety three ninety four. So anyways, I just thought it'd bring it up. I thought that was kind of interesting bullet. Let's jump into the news. Let's start off with a couple of updates from yesterday's show. I think I mentioned that we were talking about Marvel's TV series on Netflix, and we were kind of wondering what does Disney streaming service mean for the future of those shows? And we finally got a confirmation. I think a little bit at least some kind of clarification here from the net flicks heads, itchy, would we know the disease streaming service means nothing essentially to the net. Marble shows basically the Netflix chief content officer. Ted surround does confirm that net flicks plans to continue making their marvel shows for the foreseeable future. His exact quote in an interview with inverse was those shows are for us to cancel and receive for happy with it forming so far aside from the iron fist, they just canceled of course, but it seems. It was. Yeah, it's it's separate from anything that Disney or that marvel studios is doing on the cinematic side or even on the TV streaming side because we know that Disney is playing their own marvel shows with the low key and starlet which spin offs. So I think there's a report a little while ago that a about the goings on the Disney marvel corporate world right now, and that there would not be any new marvel shows at net flicks. They would all go to the streaming service, but Netflix, his current show such as daredevil, Jessica Jones, Lou caged punisher. And maybe defenders would go on to have second. Third, fourth, maybe even fifth season, so it doesn't seem to add. There's not a lot of clarity on whether they can make spin offs of these shows or whether these the only titles could continue making. But that seems to be the the contract with the there with the. Net Netflix smarter shows right now. I am pretty sure my assumptions correct that basically Netflix owns the rights to these characters for the time being as long as they can continue to still make the shows in probably any characters established in those universes. I, I, I don't think we'll see any offs on Disney streaming service from the Netflix shows. I think it's going to be almost like a Netflix marvel cinematic universe of sorts kind of off to the side. But, oh, another story we talked about yesterday, we talked about Jason plumb who made some really stupid comments about why he has not hired a female director for any of the boom house movies in HD. You also wrote in update on this story. Would we know? Yes. Yes. So after the backlash that Jason bloom and bloom house received falling his comments, that quote, there are a lot of female directors period and even less inclined to do horror unquote. He has issued an apology for these comments that he called dumb, and that he will do better essentially. So he said, thank you everyone for calling me out. My dumb comments in that interview, I made a stupid mistake. I spoke to quickly about a serious issue in issue and passionate about yada, yada, yada. I heard for many today, the way my passion came out was dumb. And for that, I'm sorry, I will do better. And later in a red carpet interview with Reidy for Halloween, he said that he has are he's already setting out to meet more. Women were direct to'real roles or what what's you have it? And that he has used this as sort of a learning experience. It said that we live in a world where the reaction comments from the head of blood house is more respectable than that. If the president of the United States. Yeah, but it it's good that he was so quick to respond to this. And clearly it seems like he's making some progress to look at some female directors, you know, for future plus movies. So I think it's a win win, right? Yeah. I think that he, he really took it in stride and he used it as a way to like basically better himself in better bloom houses directive in a way, which I think is a really good way to approach this kind of thing because you could easily lash out and sale. It's not my fault and stuff, and we've seen that happen before with directors who have been criticized for this kind of thing, but he has really taken it as he said before, like a learning experience, which is good. Let's move on to marvel comics who is going to be taking inspiration from marvel studios. Captain marvel for their new captain marvel comic book run. Ben would we know? Yes. So basically for the past forty years, the origin story of the character captain marvel has remained the same. It's very complicated, but I'll give you a very, very quick streamlined version. So the air force pilot Carol danvers meets an alien cre- warrior named marvel in the comics was posing a human scientist, and then a cre- weapon blows up really close to Carol danvers infuses her DNA with Marvel's, and that basically turns her into a human cre- hybrid and gives her the superpowers that we know that the captain marble has. But in a new origin story that is going to be in the fourth issue. It's actually in stores right now available right now digitally in comic bookstores of a comic called life of captain marvel. The backstory is changing to reflect what we're going to see in the upcoming moral studios. Captain marvel movie. So in the new comic, it's revealed at Carol. Denver's mother is a member of the Cree race. So. So that automatically makes Carol a half human half cre- person from birth. And then instead of her DNA fusing with Marvel's during this explosion, it turns out that the explosion basically just activated the latent powers that were within her. And that's kind of a big deal because it basically means that no longer she no longer is relying on this male character to just sort of, I guess, like. Bestow these powers upon her by this whole DNA fusing situation. It's like she's had it within her the whole time. And as the Hollywood reporter points out, it's a purposeful shift that befits the company's repositioning of the character is a model of female empowerment. So it's kind of a cool thing. It's it may seem like a little change, but that's that's kind of a big deal. You know, it's, it's, it's one of those things that is going to go a long way for a lot of people. And this character obviously has a lot riding on her in the movie anyway, being the first female lead solo movie of moral studios, which has pretty whatever twenty three movies or something at this point. So yeah, that's kind of cool it. Do. We know that this is the same origin as in the new movie? Yeah, actually, HD wrote an article in early September that says that captain Marvel's Carol dampers is part human part Cree in that was part of, I think, Entertainment Weekly did some of, you know, one of their slow drip reveals of simply information from the movie. So. We know that that is going to be the case with Brie Larson's version of the character. Very cool. It's interesting that like marvel doesn't do you know expanded universe stuff? I know Kevin Feige is such a big fan of Star Wars and Star Wars. As the whole, you know, expanded universe stories go, you know, interconnecting throughout different mediums in marble kind of has their comic book universe in their the, the marvel cinematic universe. And I know there are sometimes prequel COMEX to the movies, but there really isn't a way for people that love the movies to kind of continue the same adventures of that exact character in the comics. And but it is interesting that in a way you know the movies improve on the comics. And then the comic then are influenced by the movies. It's like this, you know, super cool process. Yeah, it makes sense to because movies are really easy access point for new fans of of superheroes and to buy changing the origin stories to sort of match the movies a little bit closer. They're basically making it more streamlined. So that fans who come in from the movies can easily just become comic book fans. Do we know of any other occasions of the the movies completely revamping the comics in a big way. I found this article on I, oh nine. That has a list of times that the movies have influenced the comics and a couple of the entries they have on there are for the movie blade, I guess, blades powers were wildly different in the comics before the movie came along, and then the comic sort of adapted to the what the movie established. And then also in one of the many versions of the x men, comics that came out after Bryan singer's x. men movie the the character, the characters got like a wardrobe revamping to sort of. Flecked closer to black leather look that it appeared that like, ironically fans kind of hated those costumes when that movie came out. But I guess one of the comics gave them the costumes that are very, very close to that. But none of these examples are from the marvel cinematic universe that Disney owns and runs. Right. That's correct. Okay. Let's move on to. It takes to a scripted comedy series at FOX coming from of all people, the property brothers. News. This lug is talking about something. This is important news Kier property by there is our guest to HDTV watchers, and I'm very happy that they're gonna have their own. I, I am mocking the story, but I am an avid watcher of the pop property brothers by the way. I mean they're Canadian, right? Yes. Yeah. Did you seem like perfect in every way like like nothing ever seems like I've never. I've watched so many episodes that show and it seems like those guys have no flaws whatsoever. Genetically engineered in the lab to be like the ideal of the unthreatening male idol. Which is why I love them so much. They're just they're so charming and fun. And you know, they're identical twins who just had these megawatts smiles and are very good at their jobs too. A lot of people know this, but they, they actually right directed produce like they're like most of their stuff. So like, you know, are in heavily involved with all of those shows like it's not just like, you know, a lot of those shows you have a host that appears or you know, characters that appear on these reality show series. But they are like very, very involved in the whole process. Which is probably why they're going to be getting their own scripted comedy series at FOX. So the property, brothers, aka, Jonathan, and drew Scott wrote a memoir called. It takes two and that memoir is now being adapted into a Fox TV series, which is currently committed to a script, and we don't know whether this will be picked up for pilot yet, but this is currently in development, and it will follow their story about two entrepreneurial twin brothers who decide to join forces in the real estate business when they realized they are stronger together than apart though this is the first I think fictionalized like scripted series for that is fond from an h. e. TV series, but the property brothers have their own of several reality shows, including the teach their proper property brothers. There's brothers versus brother and property mothers at home and in which the two brothers one, which is more is a contractor in the other. Which is a real estate agent, worked together to buy fixer upper house for a family and then fix it up and renovate it. In both the brothers are actually actors. Do you know? Do we know if they're actually going to appear in this move this show about their their origin, their origin story show. We don't know yet. There's no news on casting. The only know that a script is currently being worked on by John and Josh Silverman who wrote it's always sunny in Philadelphia and the coming Wiley, Coyote movie, but it's possible that they could have a cameo or maybe even started. I didn't know there actually actors. I do know that one is an illusionist Peter was excited about, but I, that'd be really cool if they started as well. I mean like they are. They have movie star looks so I totally watch them could possibly play them on the small screen. Like I, I can't imagine anybody being the property brothers of the property refuse. That's true. They're very tied to their brand. I would watch them especially if they start. In it because if it was someone else and they didn't live up to the expectations I have for the property brothers, then I might not watch it. But I think if they started it, I definitely would tune in bed. Do you have any experience with the property brothers guys? All of this has gone totally over my head. I don't watch this. I have no idea who's people are have never even seen them before. So I've just been sitting here quietly in the corner. You have some homework than the UN. Amy have to sit down in front of the TV each and watching episode of the property with fear is the best HDTV show. Fight me on that. I'm gonna quit heater. She makes me. Straight to epic, you it, enjoy it, but, okay, let's move on. Let's talk about this abandoned Rambo movie that they're now actually making with Sylvester Stallone still starring, but it's no longer a Rambo movie Ben tells about it. Yeah, this is really weird story. So in two thousand nine, this was just one year after the fourth Rambo movie came out. So us are Salone was talking about making ramble five, which was then referred to as Rambo five, the savage hunt and this version of the movie. He was very excited about and it would have basically taken a hard turn into Sifi territory where Rambo would have basically faced off against this genetically engineered creature. And that movie was in the works for a long time. We heard a lot about it and then of course time passing, it never happened. Rambo, five is actually filming right now, but it's not this version. It's basically it appears to be more of a western version. I think Chris talked about it a couple. Days ago on the podcast Rambos battling Mexican cartel in the new movie. So it's it's not Sifi at all, but Salone liked that story. That concept so much that almost ten years later he's making that into a separate movie and he's going to be starring in it, but he's just not going to be playing John Rambo in it. So the idea is based on this SCI fi action book called hunter by James Byron Huggins came out in nineteen ninety nine and deadline. Now says that Stallone is going to be starring in a film adaptation of that book, and it's gonna. He's looking for a writer to write the script for that movie right now. So it's basically the story is about a hunter who is an ultimate tracker and these military guys come and ask him about this, you know, to participate in the secret mission that they're working for, and there is a beast loose somewhere north of the Arctic circle, and there's all this know secret research facilities and this military squad is getting wiped out by this beast and it's a raging superhuman monster heading for civilization. And the hunters. The only one who can track this half human half animal abomination out in the wild. So I mean, it sounds kind of nuts. I personally am just really disappointed that stolen couldn't find a way to get that made as Rambo five. Because you know, at this point, Rambo, as a character has gone through every permutation of realistic and unrealistic fighting the, you know, in terms of like, try acting in Rambo, two or three, he fights like the entire Afghan army or some incorporate some crazy thing. I've seen that movie in a long time, but rent Rambo, four was like insanely violent. He's like ripping through guys in Burma and the idea of the Rambo franchise. Just suddenly in the fifth entry going into Sifi is kind of an exciting one. Just even though it's the loan is like way older these days. I just feel like there's a lot of potential for, I guess, imbuing that franchise with a jolt of. That it probably wouldn't have. Otherwise, I'm not exactly looking forward to Rambo five as it exists in its current form right now because it sounds like this. Well, sorry. I'm I'm not exactly looking forward to Rambo five in its current form right now because it just sounds like another cartel story. And we've seen so many of those in recent years, but the idea of a sci-fi thing was really sort of fascinating. So I don't know. I'm not sure how this is going to be in, you know, with just the loan being in just a hunter movie, but what do you guys think about this one. You know, it's strange because I don't feel like Rambo, is that interesting of the character and I would have been very interested in saying Rambo in, you know, go full Sifi. I love when franchises kind of go crazy like that. You know, Jason space, whatever, just ridiculous. And I know it's still going to be still I alone and they said, no, it's not like there's like something really that different about Rambo versus his other characters. But I feel like now that it's not Rambo, I'm not. I have no interest in this. I, I would rather see. I, you know, I wanna see Rambo versus predator. That's why I want to say, yeah, this very easily could be just like a direct to video kinda thing with this premise and depending on who they gets a write in directed. You know, I, it's it. I feel like it loses a lot of potential being outside of the Rambo universe. But I don't know. We'll see it. Should you have any love for Emba? I did not, but I've found who's a huge fan of Rambo, and one sent me a like paragraph through DM's talking about how the first Rambo was actually a very nuanced Hake on PTSD and then a devolved into this jingoistic franchise. And that's all I know about it. Your friend is very smart. That's absolutely true. Okay. Let's move on to our final story in that is early buzz for bohemian rhapsody, the the bio pic starring Rami Malik. H earth is up for this site. Is this movie any good. You have to ask the critics because it's very divided right now. Some people say that it's a by the numbers bio pic that gets duller and dollar without Rami Malik in the center. And others say that it's a great and enthralling film and motion. Exhausting as one of the words was used. But for example, Kyle Kennedy New York Times calls movie a glorified Wikipedia entry LA times Kimber Myers criticizes for being somehow too long, refusing to dwell on anything that have act. That's actually interesting, but everyone is universal in praising Rami mouths performance as Freddie Mercury, the front man for Queen and the the legendary singer who tragically pass away from aids in nineteen ninety one. So he's already been sort of singled out as one of the top contenders for the best actor Oscar according to deadlines, Pete Hammond and. Again, everyone had words of praise for him even if they didn't like the movie them itself. People also singled out the Live Aid performance, which is considered one of queen's best performances ever. Do you think that we've just reached a point where you can't just do a traditional bio-pic like people are kind of, you know. We've had, you know, worrying up post walk, hard world where like, you know that formula, it's just been done to death in now, if you're going to do a bio pic has to be like, I man. I think so. I mean, like whenever we have a new bio picture come out are slack always ends up posting one of the clips from walk hard because it always applies. And it's definitely I think audiences or maybe just film Twitter has grown tired of something that we've seen over and over again, and that almost always gets a place at the Oscar table despite not being very good or original or new. So yeah, I think that's definitely the case and bohemian rhapsody apparently doesn't really do anything new despite having a really great lead four months. Then do you have any thoughts on the future of the bio-pic man? Yeah, I. I guess that template is just so well worn at this point that if somebody can come up with a different angle on it that I automatically going to be more interested in that maybe comes from the position of somebody who watches a ton of movies and maybe that doesn't apply to, you know, the normal American families or or you know, people who just go see movies a couple times a year or something. Maybe this template is not a stale for them as it is for us. But I, you know, I'm I'm always in favor of people trying new ways to tell similar stories like this. So I don't know Peter, are you going to see this movie? Because I feel really torn about it knowing that it's Bryan singer film and there's all these allegations about him and we don't have to get into all those details here. But just in general, I'm curious what your thoughts are about the film. You know, I think we talked about this maybe year ago on this podcast, but I try not to let the. Personal lives of the artists, creating the art effect. My in the art, but I, I've definitely been conflicted with that. I don't love seeing. They'll Gibson films there. There are some people I I have. You're right. It should avoid this. Shouldn't I. No, no, I'm still. I still haven't made up my mind. I think it's something that everybody has to decide for themselves and it's just like, you know, where do you fall on the scale? How you know how serious do you wanna be about it? And it's not like you're saying, I don't begrudge people who decide to go see this because there are so many people who worked on this movie who are not named Bryan singer, and their work probably deserves to be seen and celebrated. But it's, you know, it's a one of those things like if you pay for it, you're, you know, are you enabling you know are? Are you sending Hollywood the message that that you've still wanna see, Bryan singer, movies, that kind of thing? I don't know. It's a very complicated question. It's not something that we can like answer easily on a podcast, but I was just curious if you have any general thoughts about this movie, if you're like, if you'd already made up your mind about whether or not you're gonna see it. Well, I, if I do see it as probably gonna be at a press screening, so I would not be giving my money right to the film. Although I have heard whenever the screen films for Pratt's the studio. Has to. Pay for their own movie essentially by out the theater in accounts towards box office. So I guess essentially by me going to see the studios giving themselves money out now I'm not sure how that works it. It's very strange. I don't know. I also part of a a film critics group in if his performance is something that's going to be part of that conversation, I'm going to have responsibility for sure. HT is your choice of seeing this movie or not affected by the artists involved. I mean, I'm of the opinion that money talks best in Hollywood and especially in box office. And I do think that giving my money to this movie will end up kind of lending to that message that Bryan singer can is in demand and will still be working and like he still is working. He got a major deal for that red Sonja movie. So I don't think I would want to give my money to this movie despite being a big fan of Rami Malik. I'm a huge fan of his work in mister robot, and I would like to support him, but I don't. I would rather personally to avoid giving my money to this movie. I kind of under the impression, maybe I'm just reasoning it to myself, but I'm under the impression that like if I went in supported red Sonja or whatever Bryan singer does next, though, it'd be more detrimental than you know going out and seeing this movie, he did get fired halfway through. So who knows how much of it he actually was responsible for two. If you guys have any opinions on that, send us an Email at Peter at slash on dot com. Maybe we'll read it in the mail bag HT working. We've on more your work on. You can find me everyday at slash dot com. And I'm on Twitter at h TRAN Buli, then work, we find you. You can find me running platinum dot com as well.

Tell your friends spread the word. We'll see you tomorrow. Okay. So I wouldn't question for you. Guys has. Has there been any movies that you refuse to see because you didn't want to support the actors involved or the director involved. Like daddy's the daddy's home movies, I think, or I guess it was the second one specifically because they, they hired Mel Gibson and can't that that seems like so a blatant to me like the, I, I guess, casting him in a lead role is different than letting him be behind the camera for me anyway, I dunno this again, this is like a very personal thing for everybody in people draw their lines in different spots. But that was like I, I found that casting to be particularly agreed just to put him in front and center in a family film. Like I was just like, I'm not. I have nothing to do with this movie. On the other hand, I know that you do not like Johnny Depp. But you will still see movies that have Johnny Depp in the movie. I mean, I, I still haven't forced myself to sit down and why I fanned tastic beasts movie, and that's actually that's partially the reason the other reason is just I don't have that much interest in it. So yeah, I don't know actually. Has there been any for you where you've just been like? No, I'm not doing this in a tough place for fantastic beaks. You know, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and I was kind of the hope, I guess like holding onto a tiny string of hope that they would recast him. And that doesn't seem like it's going to be the case, but I probably will still see fantastic beasts. The crimes of Grunwald even though he's the title character and plays a prominent part. I'd just like, yeah, but I, in that case, I feel like the franchise is bigger than the actor even if the French has sticking by him. Again, I have complicated feelings about it, but there have been, I mean, all the. Mel Gibson movies since his, you know, his. I don't know what you call it didn't? Yeah. His incident, I have definitely not been interested in or have gone on my way to see Hacksaw Ridge was his direct to'real film in two thousand sixteen that was getting, I think, like some Oscar buzz and I was like, I have no interest at all the see this, but that again wasn't like a huge conflict for me because I was never a big Mel Gibson fan to begin with. So it's just kind of something that I would not come out of my way to do. I don't. I can't think of anything else like the giant one is definitely the the one that ways the most on my mind. But I can't think of anything right now. I like on one side. It's like Harry Potter. The other side, it's Johnny Depp. It is. Is there any for you that you've not that? Not that I can think of. Maybe Mel Gibson, but I think it's been more of my opinion of him as a person has affected my enthusiasm of seeing things that he's involved with it. It's not like a, you know, a calculated decision of, I'm not gonna go see films he's involved in it. I'm not. Excited to do. Does that make sense? Yeah. Yeah. It's not a, it's not a statement. It just happens to align with your general interest level? Yeah. I don't know guys. I, it's it's a hard line, but I also think I mean, h, you do say that you know Hollywood makes all the decisions based on money, which is true. But I also believe that. That Hollywood takes the wrong lessons that of everything. You like Foggia rep said he does? Well, I don't think the lesson will be that, oh, we need to hire Bryan singer for more stuff. I think the last one will be like, oh my God, bio-pics backing in style. We gotta do more seventies by OPEC's. Getting some getting now, John one, although that's doing something different too, which is interesting. So that seems more fantastic. All the have. No. Don't no place to lead the podcast. The podcast here have good day.

But a little movie called a capex Zarin Kevin Spacey. That's something. AM Arctic Cheney. Just just don't get in that consultation with stitch fix and say, you wanna look like Brian Setzer from the Brian Setzer orchestra. Because they cannot help there. This weekend. Andy San Burg, actually, who's the host. Sandra hosting right syndrome. They're hosting Golden Globes on NBC will renew something coverage wise, not what not sure what to do yet figured which is run down the nominations. Maybe make a pick. Maybe who we think should win or who will win up to you decide what you wanna do. I'll run down the nominations quick. We haven't had a chance to do this. We'll make this a long segment best film drama stars born black clansmen to feel streak could talk Black Panther Baheen rhapsody. I'm going to stars born. I think it's gonna win. I think it should win. What about you guys? I think I seen all these movies, except for feels street could talk I think that one's been getting great buzz. So I might might pick that one once I see it because that seems like something I really enjoy. But out of these in terms of what I enjoyed the most stars born. But I don't seems like a really bohemian rhapsody in this crop. I think is outrageous because it just wasn't a good movie drama. Yeah. It. I don't know. The black klansman definitely deserves to be in there. I Black Panther is. I think deserves to be in there. I think that's an interesting pick. I still getting used to comic book movie being in a best motion picture drama category for someone who's thirty four. It's hard to get just to that. Because I'm so used to know them having like. And some French language bullshit like up there every year. So kind of cool. Yeah. I think my gonna be with Jeff has say stars born just two hundred hype around it, even though it is the second remake of the movie, and it's the same piece of plot points around just think what they were able to do that was really cool. And I think that this is one of those movies that film critics love even though it may be there's better movies that come out this year. Do I think it should win? Maybe not. But I think it will. Let's move on best film drama. Actress lady Gaga Glenn Close. The wife must McCarthy. Kenya? Forgive me. Nicole Kidman destroyer and Rosamund pike a private war. I think this is a shoe lady Gaga though, I might pick McCarthy for my favorite. She was incredible and Kenya. Forgive me. But this this one should this'll be a shock lady. Got a win. I think lady Gaga will win. But I would love to see milk Melissa McCarthy when here in her revenge tour member Tammy remember, the college movie, I just did. Oh, yeah. Well, now, I'm on the road to the Oscar to good point Melissa McCarthy. A woman I still don't think that lady Gaga was decorated job in stars. I think obviously the singing was incredible like Oscar where these, but the actual acting. I don't think was really there especially in three dramatic scenes, you know, when like he sort of relapses and like can in he makes fun of her. And then he goes to like stay sorry to her at the dance studio. She just like, yeah. You really hurt me. That's not really convincing to me on of her performance outside of the actual seeing which again was instant I think was award worthy. So I think Melissa McCarthy win. So although the fever is all for lady Gaga. Well, I'm insanely cynical. And I am very cynical towards the Golden Globes because it's the, quote, unquote, more fun more boozy less dressed up alternative to the Oscars. And I feel like a win for lady Gaga right here would be big for their fun brand. It would you get the little monsters on their get a buck. A bunch of people younger audience tuning into this crusty ass award show that for nearly wouldn't tune in you, you know, put lady Gaga there 'cause it's not like the Oscars. I know what did we talk about this before like, you know, I'm sure there's this entire of storage lot off of sunset Viner, whatever that's just full of Golden Globes. Just people put them in their units. I'm storage wars zero storage wars. Oh, yeah. You remember that guy he sold merchandise? Do you remember on pawn stars? And when people call in and ask for battle toads. Forgot about that shit. Wasn't that watch? You profanity from storage rose worse than mean that went around forbid. You know what Joe profanity? Chew panel's going back and forth. Well, no, they just an actual scene from it. I don't know. This might be too inside vine short video for you guys that might be correct. All right. Let's get to best film drum actor Bradley Cooper stars born early Malik between rhapsody will the fo at attorneys gate, Lucas hedges Boya raised in John. David washing black klansman. I think Bradley Cooper is gonna win would probably pick Johnny Washington. Black clinton. Also, not sure I really like I really liked Lucas hedges. Not sure he should have been nominated for boy raced just my also by the way, it looks like Disney's deal with FOX's now finalized officially just now. So for time the review x-men wolverine is in and game confirmed for. Ask me on Instagram stories through like, yeah. Well, if the deal with FOX's and finalized than white is what is dead pool have specifically Negga sonic where we're headed. Now's like or literally any other mutant 'cause there's all meetings in it. And it's because that deadpool was made way before this deal is even talked about, and they may trades. He's not in the fucking movie. He retired from interest. Yeah. I haven't seen at eternity gate. So I can't speak on we'll default there. But I I like John David Washington's well here, you know. Of course, I liked Bradley Cooper and stars born. I think he's more of a favorite in the director categories for stars born than he will be in the actor categories. I think if he gets any credit in the ward season four stars born it's going to be in the director category. Now, I think it's a stronger year for directors though, it is very strong to that second because I'm looking at some of these actors and actresses, and I don't think it's as as stacked is it was last year because we had. Laurie metcalf. And of course, we had the great Nelson Janney Allison Janney. And then I'm sorry. I'm blanking on her name. But she was in three billboards, for instance, dormant over doormen. Yeah. Sorry about that. And then I'm looking at these. I think these Nicole Kidman's great lady Gaga great. But I don't think any of these performances from what I've seen were would've the I've even considered in last year's crop. Yeah. I think that if I pick some out of this group, I'm going to pick Rummy milk, actually, because I don't think they go finish without them giving rhapsody something, and it definitely doesn't deserve best picture. And so I think that they're going to give it rhyme outfits because the betrayal was good. But no one can deny that just the movie itself wasn't for it. I mean, I think that is the best thing you can say about the movie is Rami Malik. Did a great job is, Freddie. Mercury. If you were to say one good thing about the movie, so you're right on there. Plus if we're going back cynical route there's been a just a out. Pouring of Instagram accounts, dedicated to Rami Malik all the time and bohemian rhapsody, and the gotta get the I don't know if he has like a Malik army squad, but they got appeal to them the little Malik Rami. Malik. All right, next up best film comedy slash musical. Green. Book the favourite vice Mary Poppins, crazy, rich, Asians. I would pick green book, and I actually think in books gonna win. I'd put vice above the favorite. But I think green books in a way it's probably between green book in the favorite though. I'm going to get a Stanford comedy aspect of this and crazy, rich Asians. Also. Did we talk about we talked about this the other night at the stolen a twenty eight teen movie? Yes. Are you? Sure. I feel like it was so long ago. The movie revere rethought about in this year. Rather? I would if you're gonna have a dark comedy like the favourite on here or didn't vice I would get the Stalin's snub. Although that's not a big enough movie for them include. So I guess I that that's my favorite. Steve Shammy is sticky. Khrushchev's may the funniest thing. We'll time he being they're so good. They should be in here over green Geiger because it's neither musical nor comedy. And the stone is one of the best counties of in recent memory, definitely want in your could. Now, if it's not there, I really don't wanna pick out say crazier changes because they're saying before the fun aspect of the Golden Globes green book should be in the drama category in bohemian rats. You should be in this category. If anything I mean, greenbush me now agree book's fantastic. We're gonna be reviewing in a few weeks. Do our catch up. But I think Mary Poppins should be dropped off for deficit on the stones fucking incredible. But I mean, I think you're right. That one is not. The dough had like commercial peel at all gross. Yeah. Exactly golden is like the Pepsi of. The Golden Globes, please, please best film comedy musical. Actress Olivia Colman the favourite Emily blunt. Mary Poppins Elsie Fisher eighth grade constitute Kirsty, rich, Asians, Shirley's thrown totally. I'm gonna have to go. Let me call me as a good chance. But I think this should be and it will be one. I like Fisher. I don't think it will be Elsie Fisher. But I liked her could be my best movie the year between that and we'll tease between that and mission. Imposs- why finish for the most part my rankings twenty two movies ninety or one less than last year and fifty two eighty or above three less than last year. But it's it's it's between eighth grade mission impossible fall off my best movies the year based on what you guys were saying about Mary Poppins is a similar scenario as bohemian rhapsody where I mean, maybe that was a little better of a movie, but Mary Poppins was like if this family blunt in it would not be worth washing. Oh, absolutely. Not. I don't know close. So I could see her again, I didn't see it. But I could see her deserving this award based upon what you guys have said simply from like the MVP argument of. Jaw parallel to like Aaron Rodgers doesn't have a great football team. But keeps them in the game. I of go back as Livia Coleman in the favourite was fucking awesome. And I don't think anyone that role. And the same thing Ruth Elsie Fisher in eighth grade. I can't imagine anyone else in that role. But then again, I think every no any other teenage actors in general. So could be true. But thought she was awesome. Do blunt win sisters because not only is this something that the Golden Globes glove, but it was just a great performance. She did an awesome job. It's interesting in this category. Because I actually I like the comparison of Emily bulletin around him out, but actually think both at a far better job at her role than early mounted only because I think she made it her own a little more not that romance is gonna make Freddie Mercury his own. But I think in terms of like comparing the two I just if I could pick a performance I picked the Emily blunt one. Because in a sense, she was playing someone that already existed. So. A great, but I think Emily blunt should win this best film, counting musical actor Christian bale. Vice Vigo Mortenson green book mill Miranda, Mary Poppins returns, Robert Redford, the old man and the gun and John C Reilly Holmes and Watson. Anytime gain that much you gain that much weight for a role, you should be given this Golden Globe. Nothing the Oscar too. To get into tunnel league for green book. Yeah. That's true. I this is there's nothing to say about this one Kristie crystal be able to fucking crime by a billion miles over Lou manual end as the horny fuck and BMX biker chimney to five. Me love doing reverse twisties over the chimney. Yeah. This is Christian bale. Anything really say about this this this this should be Christian bale? He was incredible it. It's just it's insane. What he did? Okay. So we're not we don't have to dive more into the rest of these read off nominees. Best film, supporting actress, Regina king, if you could talk Amy Adams, vice Rachel Weisz favorite, Emma, stone, the favorite clear. I man seems like Regina king is favourite their best supporting actor Herschel Ali green book, Richard E grant can you ever? Forgive me. Timothy shell may beautiful boy, Adam driver, black klansman Sam Rockwell, vice per usual this category. Pretty wide open though, it seems like a lot of people are leaning Sheila or Richard E grant director seems like a shoe in despite the fact that category is stacked Bradley Cooper stars. Born Spike Lee, black klansman Peter fairly green book, Adam McKay vice but Alphonso Koran seems like he's probably gonna take it for Roma, which we we will talk about Roman or ketchup. A lot to say about Roma, and I liked it. It's it's a ninety or above for me. But I could I could see stars born sweep in the Globes and then Koran winning the Oscar for this. That's fast. Just because I there's so much hype behind Bradley Cooper machine is overwhelming. The Cooper train keeps on Roland. Yep. And then the last thing I wanna know there's of categories is the best animated feature film Spiderman into this fight over one another award today. Very excited to see if this one wins best animated feature. The Gold Gloves has never really an indicator for the Oscars. But the animated feature will give you a sense for that category at the Oscars. I mean, I I hope it's a damn shame. Spiderman into the spine of doesn't win this category. It would be such a crime because it is truly one of the best movies of the year period and should be if it loses it's going to be too. I'll dogs, of course, it would be. I just saw another casting dispatcher thought I just got mad because I knew that it's a hundred percent gonna beat spider or spiders. Yeah. All right, number two next up on our news item here. Happy death date. The news is very barren today, by the way, happy death day to you trailer number two not much different. Right. Like, it's just. Kind of the same trailer. It's it's the same thing. Basically the same trailer. Did you I couldn't even point out any scenes I thought were different from the original trailer. That's how little I retain over the previous trailer. Media was weird move. It made. It seem like I I don't know. It was strange. It's the same other for movie that looks at the same exact thing as the first one. So it's double bed and that respect fucking that congrats on fucking that up twice. Looks good. It's like, I I'm I'm gonna give this. I'm gonna about this movie's pre buttered oh, shown up. You know, I I or of the year gazette ninety five hundred hundred preemptive score. It's getting. Kgo eight this moves so much. Yeah. Not much there. Nothing else to say. And then there's a new Dumbo trailer. That's not much different either. But I do like other kind of given Dumbo a little more push because they know it's it's just it's gonna fall by the wayside compared to the rest of Disney's movies. What's coming up March the March? I think March. I don't know. I mean, so Dumbo and then middle year of is Aladdin in indivudal is liking still they're all kind of middle. They're all the other two are basically in the summer. So maybe double won't get buried. But it definitely is the one I want to see the least. Yeah. I mean, it has a lot of good people in it. I mean, Alan Arkin, Danny devito, Colin Farrell. Michael Keaton is Helena Bonham Carter in it. She's not that's weird. Dude might be a cameo Eva greens in it. She's obviously what was your name in the casino royale or JAMES BOND movies. Asper Orland Vesper Lyn, right or you going to say. Super coochie because they always have like weird like over sexual names. Biggest those too far is it is a messed up that. I can't remember Francis. Mcdormand's name who is a real accomplished person. I can remember Vesper lend. Hello. My name is wet wet. What was what was the name? Oh, Zenya on tot that I didn't. I didn't get. Sexual. Reference until we started doing the Ponca podcast. Yeah. So dumbo. I dunno Dumbo is. Well, I mean, we'll see I would like it to be good. But I just I'm not gonna did you guys like the Dumbo like the cartoon one. It's creepy cell. I never like. I never like I don't like any of those original nineteen thirty's nineteen forties. Disney wroto scope movies, or whatever they are. Where it looks like they're just tracing human movement. Yeah. It's creepy creepy. Now, it feels like racist watching the mount a why probably because everybody made them was. But it is. Well, the Dumbo had the crows, right? Yes. That actually was correct. Oh, that makes more sense. That's what. But now, I don't know. I I'm I'm elephant gang. I love elephants. I think they're some of the most magnificent majestic creatures on this planet as Dumbo elephant. And I'm going to be pragmatic and see see what he's able to do again. It's. It's gonna fall by the wayside. I think it's gonna make money. But I mean, this is not there compared to elect or Lion King. Also, captain marvel I knew exclusive look on Monday during the cultural national championship that'll be coming out. And then a new Amtrak. Learn a few weeks, so what's happening. All right one more ad read. And then we had two more news stories before we. Before we jump on the news is about to end. And so good today. Jeff. They're still two more.

They came out and said nearly one third of their subscribers watched bird box in the first week. So that's approximately forty five million people subscribers maybe more people, if you include people watching with do you think that's true that seems like a lot of people I feel like literally almost at this point a year ago this week or maybe the week before they they talked about bright in the same way. Right. Didn't they do? Right. I mean, I feel like a lot of people watched it. It's not a to liked it. Maybe I don't know the forty five million, right? And let's say let's say an average ticket is ten dollars. It's more than that. But you soom like forty five million in an average of two people watch. Purview. I mean that movie and make eighty million dollars easily. Even if the average ticket was higher in the first week. So maybe that's right. I mean, you got that Netflix and people have the platform, and there's a lot of social media buzz for so I can see it. It just seemed very high. So more more power to congratulations net. Flicks. Did you see what else they came out and did today regarding bird box? Now, they told people not to do the bird box challenge, which I had no idea what it is. But it's people doing apparently mundane shit will wearing blindfolds. No god. Cool. That that sounds like a fetish that does it sounds like fifty shades of grey. One scene in blockers were Barron. Whole nuts crushed. Yep. That's right. All right. So shut out the bird box not a fan. All right to pieces of news ambi- land to which apparently, I didn't know until the other day is spelled T O wasn't that how dais built dumb and dumber dumb and dumber. I who wasn't that. Like that at thought misspelt it on the run as an is ago. Whatever it doesn't matter. Okay. I didn't know that. Yeah. It's like it's listed like that in some places. I don't know if that's true or not. But some places say the number to some places to say, yes, t oh, whatever they cast, Dan ackroyd and Bill Murray Bill Murray was in the original and died he was shot and killed by Woody Harrelson character when he's pretending to be zombie and Ozzy Dan ackroyd in and ghostbuster Bill Murray. We'll see how this is. I feel like this is potentially pretty Korean stupid because the Bill Murray thing was natural and funny and zombie limit. It was right around the peak of Bill Murray's like like, preach. I've preach. I've. Yeah. It was like his rear is to being. Very popular. I don't know. Bull. See how they're Inc. I guess they're just going to be camera panning on them while they talk about like the death of the Ghostbusters franchise. Oh, God is normal and killed Ghostbusters. Maybe they'll bring Bill Murray. Beck is an actual zombie in this on cool. I would like that. They didn't double tap be land. Right. They didn't shoot him in the head. So why not? Yeah. That's very true. Because with that, maybe it'd be Dan ackroyd as drinking crystal head vodka. Oh god. His fifth his famous vodka brand every time. I see that story. Just laugh at good. Decorate. That's it. They were bought it might have to try. It though, we go see maybe that's what we do. We just bring crystal head vodka the theater. Let's he's led to. It's it's amazing movie came out two thousand nine in the the cast the the main cast like Jesse Eisenberg, Emma, stone Abigail breslin, all alone onto become more successful after this movie. It's four of the actors net movie or nominated for offers some point in their career. That's crazy. Woody Harrelson this almost kind of had a little revival. Many revival of sorts of not sure he ever went away. But he's had a pretty solid run. The last couple of years. I mean, he got nominated for best supporting actor for God's sakes. It's pretty precipice me. Yeah. Couldn't hunger gains movies. He's one of the. He was one of the best parts are all this, Hungary movies. Even when they coming up at the end. I loved him planet at the apes. He was the perfect putting Dylan. Oh, yeah. He was very good movie. Those movies if we ever talked about underrated movies, I think those movies like the reboot ones like starting with James Franco. I think those are underrated as totally agree. Totally tastic movies. Do not get enough hyphen praise last bit of news here. This amac is cube gonna play the back that future saw Robert Zemeckis as once again back to the future four not going to happen. That's good. Right. Like, I love back the future. They original futures. One of my top five air moves have all time. But I it's just it's too late. You can't make a fourth. It's too late. The closest will get was as a mecca skew and the DeLorean ready player. One just time to move on. It's not. And why would you want? If you're rubbers Emec is why would you wanna do that you self at this point your life to revive this franchise? And you look at the backlash from Ghostbusters and people worried about like, you bastardising the franchise like why do it at this point? Doesn't exist has so many crate rate movies outside the back to future franchise. And that's probably the only one he gets reference to buy like these random people that grew up at that. And they're right ignore. Oh, more Forrest Gump stuff. Like that was like one of the best movies ever, and I've known ever decree grow. He's like, yeah. Remember back to the future. Like one of the best movies of all time. And you wanna talk about booking back. I didn't realize how young he was is. He he's he's still only sixty six so not born nineteen fifty two and back future. What came out in eighty eight? So he was still in his early thirties and back to the future came out. And that's that's pretty good back to feature eighty five is thirty three is younger than I was. I'm not doing anything with my life. Anyway, I don't know why you look at that. I want to bring this franchise back, and then have everyone on the internet dissect every choice, I make what it and just be completely insufferable. And I can't do anything. Right. Nothing's ever true to the original. And I'm ruining the franchise. I just wouldn't. Want to do that? Now, what if you got a lot of money changes how much how much ruin your reputation though. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know maybe just handed off someone else. And then just has plausible deniability for the ruination of franchise. They just they did the third one really was was good. But it wasn't even that good. I don't think they could do anything more of it. The second one is not amazing either second one, very creative. And how they have they bring in the original movie, and they weave it in the second one has a lot of pop culture. Sick reference, bro movie. Yes. I mean, the first one is incredible movie in my I mean, that's not even not hot take two very good movie, and will forever be considered into classic movies too. I mean, he also did who framed Roger, rabbit, Kendrick, Mitch and Forrest Gump castaway. Yeah. Polar express, which I think is all over aided. He did just do a movie recently. That was very good welcome. The Marlin got to see it. It's real real heater of a movie, definitely not w-. One of the creepy or weirder movies. I've seen in the last year. It's might. We may talk about it. I don't know. Yeah. It is see Marlin call the documentary. That's a great movie. Welcome Marlin is. Tro, call it's the downsizing of the year every time I think about it. Now, just think of downsizing downsizing might have been better, which is romancing. The stone was also very good, by the way. Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, he also did flight with Denzel Washington, which I do not like I don't like quite now. I'm not a flight. I don't hate it. I I didn't care for flight not a big fan allied. He did. And I didn't like allied either. So not very good. I think is that. I think is good workout ways bad. He takes shots. He's gotta run some heat. Check. Oh, did he he did beowulf was at the one? Track three hundred hundred percent AGI. Yeah. That one that one was one of the lowest rated films of all time. Right. It was. No, it wasn't that bad. It wasn't that bad. It wasn't great. But it was used with the same technology. I believe as polar express he to those back to back got the fail correctly. I think the funniest thing Peter that movie was the the suit at Scott Baeau bailable prosper video that was really funny Scott was bail. Classics got hail. Oh, Bob, LA bla. All right. That's it for news time to talk about wait. So Crispin Glover's bail wolf, do you think CGI Crispin Glover looks more real than actual? All right before we get into the Bumblebee review, we're going to do a little skit thing. Here are good friend trill withers at Tyler Emma on Twitter from mix tape and from big of barstool radio. He did a dramatic reading of the very angry fantastic beasts crimes of grin. The walled post. We got on our read it from a maybe a burner count for Jikei earlier. I'm not sure he did a dramatic reading of it. They were going after us. They hate us because our suit me, they this person hates us for our review infrared. It's take on the cinematic masterpiece. Fantastic beasts the crimes grin the wall. Take a listen, so fantastic. Beasts to contrary to your podcast statement is expected to close in the upper six hundred low seven hundred and is not a quote, unquote, wild underperformance. It's a disappointment in the United States serious. Why does your podcast love to hate? And baselessly criticize this franchise in particular. I knew going into crimes Grindelwald that this podcast wouldn't review this film. Well, because of how nasty and lazy you treated the film going into it. I think it's clear to see that the more negative reaction on review aggregate is in the United States led to the United States under performance. But it's one of two thousand eighteen biggest performers in nearly all of your India Japan, South Korea, Russia, Mexico, South America, AustralAsia Africa and the Middle East. I think to be honest, the negative reactions were down to predetermined hatred. Reading a bunch of sensationalistic negative reviews base their vitriol on one the plot was confusing to I didn't like the story three. I didn't understand the plot in various plot misunderstandings was beyond frustrating in short, despite the film having excellent direction cinema. Graffiti designed scoring a complex novelist story with mature themes and sophisticated world building good sound design affects acting cetera. Everyone all of a sudden ignore these crucial elements of film criticism to base their distaste. So on what they thought of the story unprofessional and lazy to be honest. That's not to say, the film didn't have any problems in couldn't have been made longer in order for it to breathe a little bit more. But there's no problem in the film so bad to warn paying for such a hateful reaction it simply being fuelled by this weird brand of determined hatred. They grew up against JK Rollings work coming out of fantastic beasts one and in general anarchistic excitement in want to see a well performing franchise fail. That's it. We're just a bunch of it was boring. Bs criticism with a bunch of four Star Wars comparisons force vitriol and a bit of quote, unquote. We're supposed to hate prequel. So on the side. Additionally, it was overall love by fan. We saw that coming out of the first screenings, and there's a word of mouth was good until the press screenings the way. I see it fans loved it. The cash was a non Fantasia because they weren't familiar with novelist plotting. They weren't actively listening in therefore could not follow understand it. I don't wanna dumbed down lightened up more streamlined narrative for fantastic beasts three simply to appeal to potential fans who don't really care about this series. Either way. All right. Thanks again to Tyler getting the Bumblebee one of the first movies. We ever reviewed on this podcast. It was actually the second movie review. Transformers the last night, which was I believe the fourth movie in the Michael bay verse transformers universe. Well, guess what? That shit's no more. They kinda rebooted it. It's like a weird reboot, but not reboot. I don't know because like Bumblebee looks the same and it's like kind of the same idea. But it's also not following the same like, you know, I guess what's what's the best way to put it not following the same timeline as Michael bay transformers. Anyway, Michael bay transformers movie. This is not completely different. Travis night is the director features Haley Steinfeld John sina Dono Bryan voices Bumblebee for a little while. I'll give you the synopsis on the run in the year, nineteen eighty-seven Bumblebee the autobahn seeks revenge in a junk yard in a small California beach town, Charlie play by Seinfeld on the brink of turning eighteen years old and trying to find her place in the world soon discovers the battle-scarred and broken Bumblebee when Charlie revives him she quickly learns that this is no ordinary yellow Volkswagen. This movie has a very high rotten tomatoes score and ninety three percent. Someone on. Read it made a very good observation. Definitely not gonna go find because it's not going to be easy as finding the box office guy in red it that I found the other day. So if you know, you are Pat yourself on the back this movie is the classic very high approval rating, but the average actual ratings are like a c- range. It's like seven out of ten but most people found it to be seven ten meeting. It is certified fresh and the audience like this. Well, I gave it a seventy eight. I thought it's it's very very entertaining. Solid movie. Not perfect the script and some spots is just it's just very run of the mill. A little corny which alkyl man writing this this rating range from you as well was as well. But I did think oh man was a little more to. I don't know. I I prefer documented touch more. There is one character in this movie. Play by John Johnson knew who I thought I'll let Ken Jackley the charge because that is his original thought Kasese sought I, but I've much to say about John CENA. Haley Steinfeld was awesome. Many Steinfeld is a big time onto is. I mean, I love her music great singer. And she's just a good actress straight up good actress. Seventy eight audience our audience gave Bumblebee in eighty one out of one hundred. Would you think Bumblebee, I gave it a seventy five? I really enjoyed it on the. On the surface. I don't think it was that different than the Michael bay movies. But I think they corrected a lot of things from the Michael bay movies. I didn't like the first thing being in this one. You can actually see the action happen. Yes. The second thing being you can tell what the transformers are you can discern their body parts, and they aren't just like liquid looking spike robots and the third thing which was huge for this movie was at actually had a likable lead human protagonist. And we have not had that in transformers not saying, I don't love Shiloh book. But like the Sam Wicky character was always kind of obnoxious, and I think he was written that way. And then Mark Wahlberg just brought his own spin on the role. And I don't think we love that either by you know, you could tell by review. So I don't think it was that different. So that's why I'm not giving it like a ninety it still transformers movie. You still have some the Corning Innis in there that was by their you know, by design. A lot of the humor even though it's not like as horny or horny at all. They cut that part out. But you still had a lot of the jabs back and forth and the radio segments, and like just the humor that that was littered around the original transforms, but everything was just dialed down and made better. And that's that's why I think this is a very successful transformers movie, and it's seventy five about it's probably the cap of what I would be willing to give us transformers movie in blow me away. But this was a great return to like what I think the franchise could be that. They're just take out your brain and enjoyed action movies. Yeah. I like that snaps. I think that the biggest thing it's exceeded in is that it's a small scale. And that's kinda where transforms has been lost in the last few weeks. It's come out that just keep creasing it increasing increasing and sort of hit its limit with the last night. And they're just like, okay. How about we make this more of a plot driven thing where transformers are like the main draw? And instead it's like a decent decent enough story where transformers or are involved. So you get a decent human story out of Charlie hailee Steinfeld character and her relationship with her parents, her relationship with a Lindbergh juniors character at Ono's name was and a little bit of sort of coming to age a little bit store is well so had a little bit more heart than most transformers movies. Do the lack of Walberg did make it a lot better. The biggest problem with it. Which is one thing that I did say second coming out of it, John CENA, and we we here at the spot as we love Johnston. You love him. We are big fans. We hype him up. Perform some bloggers all the time. I think he's awesome p was just he was written so bad in this movie. And almost as if like they had a a robot. Go scan all the scripts for transformers movies and just poop out a male protagonist. Harry seen it because he's just like this unnecessarily bad ass like dude. Because in that from section seven because of course, they need to loop in section seven the most annoying part of the entire transformers franchise. And of course, Bumblebee lanes middle of section seven training field. And like, of course Johnson it just has no discernible personality or intelligence or quotes other than just saying stuff that sounds stupidly corny and fake PETA's. Do you know, I don't know if this is w spoilers but the opening his opening scene where he's just shooting the guy at the painful gun over and over and over again felt like a less to twenty minutes. Oh, yes for that's on a spoiler. It's it's fucking brutal. Man. I think the for okay. No. The first ten minutes is movie or incredible. It's a fight on cyber drawn between the deceptive cons and the autobahns. And it is it is awesome. It is like what you wish the Michael bay movies would have been you can see the action like trail said the the just the way the transformers transform the sounds or right. And I I hate being like, oh, it's got to be like the originals. But like to an extent is should be right because vehicle bays like you said Troy, you said it there spiky we know from our jokes from our second episode. We made those skits of the dumb fucking noises that the transformers used to make. In these. He's not like be the the robot man from euro trip. But the first battle is awesome. And you see more of that throughout the movie. But then after that, you be Johnson his character. And it is some of the most cringe worthy dialogue when he keeps shooting that paintball gun and his friend it it's tough. I man I immediately knew exactly what you're talking about the second. He started shooting that paintball gun. Oops. Oh, shoot. You get. Oh, no. I'm sorry. Dude, you're overreacting you're over acting. It's character didn't have any debt. I don't know if it needed to. But also, I don't know if the character really needed to exist. There was Chris. Seven section seven self played no part in this movie, other than like, a usually becoming a Rohbock for achieving the movie existed without sina could've just been bad guys or whatever nebulous bad guys. I don't know. Let's let's dip in the spoilers here. So if you don't want bumblebees spoiled skip we'll put it up at the time code in here. Dude. I usually do. To avoid spoilers for Bumblebee skip to fifty nine forty seven. All right. So yes, the real villains are the two other deceptive cons who I am now blinking on their names. I'll look it up though shell scream and wire fraud. Then me twenty thousand unmarked bills. I need to this Nigeria in prince fund. It's blitz wing. I think no not blitz wing. That's one of them. That's real. Did. You guys hear the dialogue in the film? No. Here. Let's wing we'll Jack and cliff jumper. Oh, yeah. No, no. Those were auto butts shatter and drop kick. Members of the mighty mighty. Boston's folks. Also like sound wave having the actual cassette tape. It's cool that they actually did a nod to the Rio trench hordes anyway, regardless those are the villains your I think sector seven a little relevant. There was actually rumors at Johnson was playing GI. Joe ended up not being true. But there are people saying that this is like the first Hasbro crossover Joe because at least you could understand. What is character was the way? It was just said. Yeah. No depth. No insult to Mr. sina. We love you Mr. seen come on the podcast, but they did not do any favors in this role. However, if still good movie to your name. So you win in the end. Is there anything else in spoilers that we want to cover? I think the movie plays out kind of you would think it would right? Like, there's not much too complex about spoilers. They win in the end. Yeah. I wanted to notice I thought the love interest guy. I don't I can't remember his name. He was useless did not play partners movie. What's that? That was important. I like that though. I've like they didn't have that. Like I liked the ending where he tried to hold her hand. And she's like we're not there yet. I was a good subversion from the, you know, Michael bay movies where five minutes in child both would be making Meghan, FOX. Well, like white truck drives by in the background. But like this is only like the only benefit he brings to the movie. Right. Like what else did he do? Comic relief. Not even really though, right? Like you just like normal nerd shit. But at the end were key, can you call my mom, so she can pick me up or something knows better comic relief. The stepdad Ron. You just relate to that stepdad real real hard. I relate super harvest. No. I thought he was funny like when he tries to give self-help book. And he's like, yeah. If you just smile more, you'll just be happy smile. Maybe laugh in his attempt to like run a catch up and help her if that was funny also younger brother Otis too. But he was. He was funny comic relief. And that's that's like the only other part. Spoiler section is Haley Charlie is Haley Steinfeld characters name. She has a pretty standard arc where she's grieving over the death of her father and her mom is remarried. And so she's experiencing some angst there. And Bumblebee helps her be herself. Again, is what she says at the end of the movie in the family comes together at the end pretty standard. But isn't joy -able heart warming feel-good movie rather see that any day than you know, a shallow buffs? Mom. Sam Wicky mom getting high dorm room office at edibles while he's roommates try to hack the Gibson whatever revive her with mountain dew spunk. Number one. I think a made the only thing I'd I'd want to bring up about it is why earth is so goddamn important all the time like every transformers movie. That's like the number one thing is like, yeah, we need to protect. Earth. Like, dude, we got up protect earth earth, always goal number. One tax are. Protect our. It was a deleted scene from the Michael bay movies where Mark Wahlberg characters like why why are so important in Optimus leans over. And he goes cats were Riley read lives. Premium. Subscriptions all street to them. Good. It was it was an inventive. It was like the iron giant plot line. Wasn't it that same car sort of ARC's people say E T, actually, one of my favorite viewers? I watched when his he said e is well, Christine, he said it was like AT. It was. Yeah. Onset even between both of those movies. There's only there's only three plots. There's there's the odyssey then there's off Delo and e t. The only three you can do. Nor gas orgasmic forget. I think that's it Joan deter of characters in this will be agent Simmons, Seymour Simmons or whatever. But was played by somebody else was he. Yeah. Oh, man. I totally missed that. I believe so like ninety percent. Sure. Yeah. Good time. It was it was it was I enjoyed it. Not perfect but definitely enjoyable, and I would say go see in theory. It's a lot of fun. They I'm excited for more transformers movies. And you know, what that's all that should matter to them. We're excited to see more. So where does the franchise go here? Bays already off. Right. He's done. And so are they is the decks mainline transformers movie going to be in the style, the optimist prime in the style were made to believe that that that's good. I'm excited. This was a heat check of sorts. I hope you like they did a lot stuff that we did from ninety episodes or ninety episode. What did he made clear like, oh, yeah. We're in the eighties in case, you forgot guys. Like that. When I thought there's some points where their way to over. What like what are some specific things? I'm trying to get some good ones. Because right after I watched it. I was like texting guys some, but I don't remember them off hand. But some of the music choices. Oh, yeah. For sure there. One thing. I did not expect a Bumblebee to be Dylan O'Brien's voice the maze runner team. Wolf guy that voice just did not wind up. And it didn't work for me at all. But it didn't last that long either. See back to voice fun. Fact, he knew who voiced the female transformer. Julie Andrews get now, I'm fucking. She only the CGI characters. Monsters trent. Transformers saving the premium Snapchat. Making sure nobody has to pay taxes on their premium Snapchat. That's the reason they came to earth. There's swiped up for you. I subscribed to your to and patron or my feet picks. There collect. There are people mad. This is completely off topic. There are people mad about an X men dark Phoenix screen shot like a new picture because it shows storm, and it's raining outside in the sun's out and storm is holding an umbrella and fans a really upset that storm is holding an umbrella in the rain all the comes like why why storm holding umbrella said there better be a scene explaining storm is holding an umbrella. Powers? I have to use their powers all the time. Tired of this shit. It's time talking reboot the X men. It's time the rape this shit. I it really is. It really is the second they show James McEvoy with the with the ball cap on on like, I'm out. I'm on. I don't buy this anymore. He Kevin Feige is it's basically him rest-. He just buys a garage sale. Throws everything out except for like the bags that he stuffed everything and he's just like start from scratch, even wolverine their sayings going to be a younger recast wolverine. So they'll say Ryan did up. There you go Villanova Brian. Grunt? Grunt work now. My man. All right. That's it for bubble. Be bubby. Look when we made our schedule for movies for next year. I did not think we'll be reviewing this is one of the last year saying we liked it. So that's awesome. That a good time. Seeing it. Hey, Jason momoa. We'll actually now that you said that I actually don't hit that at all. No tattoos. Like, like, whatever way too. Big big way to what Overeen is supposed to be like five foot seven in the. Do you not Jack in the wolverine? I think he might have been the most muscular twin being of all time. Yeah. But he's not six five like Jason momoa is or I think Jason memo's 6-foot-5 because he looked like he's six foot five. He was shredded in the wolverine. But like memorial is gigantic in a different way. I mean, his Cal Drago your seen that series game of thrones seen series. Hugh Jackman six to chase memo's six four. All right. Looks more gigantic in okay? All right. We'll bring understand. Look, I just want them to go back to like a really short mandalit wolverine. So I could have a character. I can relate to. You want that you said you have that's like relentlessly positive like hall home cutter. Or Honey something fuck what's his name? Sage something shit, say cut. As we'll rain. What's up guys? Push you. And then came back Neto. Let's go. Gary v rain. Flip the adamant human. My phone's right now hundred thousand dollars. Five hundred thousand dollars. Superbowl, the rain go. Where's professor x flip them in a garage sale in suburban New Jersey? Whereas here. Whereas here. Admit it you needed a wolverine like me. Dinging fucking close. I can't stop thinking about Gary wolf vereen. That needs to happen. Now be right after you have beasts class at the at the school. You get the content model class from Gary Gary v rain. The extract for million dollars, and you can too. Oh, all right. There was a game of thrones skit on SNL, by the way, Jason memo that was so fucking bad. I think I'm going to talk about it. It was called cow. Drove ghosts DOJ Joe. And it was with him and Keenan Thompson, and they just interviewed dead game of thrones characters. It was. Oh, that's the joke. Is that a lot of characters die? Yes. That is the joke. Nothing will ever top the Dwayne the rock Johnson robot. Scientists. Okay. Mad? Fucking crackup cow character just like stop saying that the skit the skits funny 'cause there's this greater premise. That's like just a spoof of these genre evil villain like superhero movies where like I'm the most evil person in the world. And he said this jackass like the rock is. I'm just trying to win the prize. Well, the contest was to see the most evil thing. And. Can you guess who played Joffrey in the skit? Now, it'll make sense when SNL purse. Yes. K mckinnon. I I don't know why she's still on this fucking show. She does not need this show. Mckinnon. Yeah. Kate mckinnon. Yeah. What else does she have gone on never movies have been particularly good. Yeah. But she's well known enough to be in this. With the exception key towns, typically people that are that recognizable are are done. After a while. I don't know. She did recently with commits spy who don't by dummy off that's dunk. She was so bad. And then. All right top ten movies that are most excited for in two thousand in nineteen. We did a vote on line as per usual rattle off our ten through six and then our five through one gotta feeling our number ones and number twos are all going to be the same. So I I added five more to the audiences list. So I'll do eleventh or fifteen for the audience at the end because our number one in two zero the same. I mean, let's be real here. We will rattle off ten or six Ken Jekyll star you this time tenth or do. We do Arnold mentions an hour at the end, we'll give at the end. My number ten you guessed it, captain marvel not my most excited comic with movie of the year. But it looks good at love rehearsing love the other cast as well. Boy, Mando here's see where they take it. And how ties into Infinity era rather vendors for? You know, we'll go we'll go one at a time. Actually, I actually prefer to do that. If we have time to do that. True. What you're number ten number ten is Joe rabbit. Oh, good pick. Mostly because I'm I'm really interested in what what TD is going on next guys. If you don't know the synopsis of this, Joe rabid Beltre's young boy living during World War Two is only escape is through his imaginary friend and inaccurate version of Adolf Hitler. Who pushes the young boys naive, patriotic beliefs. So what TD is directness got Sam Rockwell Scarlett Johansson at I think, he'll be really solid. He's also playing there. It's dark comedy, and that's a pretty dark concepts for really good very good pick. And honorable mention just because we're on the white TD train here. I'm also excited for bubbles. The Netflix movie on that is through the perspective of Michael Jackson's chimpanzee bubbles on my God. I feel like we've talked about that like our second episode. Yeah. Because it it was on the blacklist the top scripts in Hollywood that didn't get picked up and it's been thrown around a bit. These can be really solid number five hundred and six. The monkey my number ten is gonna be once upon a time in Hollywood almost put it on here because I don't feel like we know enough about it. We should be getting some formation soon. But I do like Tarantino, and there's just so many people in this movie that I'm excited for once upon a time in Hollywood. I hope it's good the premise in the lead-up has been very interesting audience number ten is very very low down the list. I thought very five. Surprised? Number nine, Ken, Jack. My number nine is going to be the joker are untile joker movie. Whatever the Joaquin Phoenix version, the screen caps and everything taught folks has been releasing helping me up big time recently watched a few weeks ago, you were never here. In addition to some of the other moves that will stay on this year three hyped up. See what he can do. Love sisters brothers loved. What was the other one? We saw similar to here shoot. Remember the name of it? But no fan of his work. And I'm curious to see what he brings to the villain joker, by the way. That's what I've been sitting as I made these lists. Yes, joker trill. What about you number nine knives out? Ryan Johnson fresh off of ruining the Star Wars franchise. Follow up movie. This one's got a cast guys. Daniel Craig Chris Evans, Leke Stanfield, Michael, Shannon. Don Johnson, Jamie Lee, Curtis unawed, Armas and Toni Collette Christopher Plummer in Ryan Johnson's directing course, run by. It will be really interesting to see what he does with us. Yeah. I'm excited for. I'm excited this when to we've we've actually cut us from news a bunch of times because there's not been enough to talk about really. But the cats is insane. We'd ever we don't know a lot about the movie. Yeah, we really just know that the cast and they just for like a week or two straight, adding people more and more and more to the cast list. And it was thanks could be fucking awesome has that same once upon a time in Hollywood vibe in terms of cast-list. My number nine is the same as Ken Jackson pretend captain marvel very captain marvel. Hope it's good to tall task to to bring that big into the universe. This late in the game before and game. Number nine for the audience is also captain marvel Ken Jak number eight most intimated movie twenty nineteen my number eight is the beach bum fan of McConnell and all of his works. And I think this is going to be one of those really cool eight low scale low budget movies that just just works. It's a character. That's built from McConnell. Hey being drug Lord. Love him. Did you like spring breakers? Okay. Does sucked harmony Korean okay fest? But I think this'll be okay. Well, yeah. In the contact is. Here's here's one that. I feel like we've been looking at for a long time because I feel like we posted that Zach Ephron side by side of his hair with a Panini on our Instagram. Like one of the first things we ever posted on her Instagram. That's that is this is a long time coming trill number nine number eight number eight lying king. Oh that much else to be said about this one. Okay. All right. No, there really isn't just the lion. King. Number eight for me joker. I just logged echo Kenge jet. Love Joaquin Phoenix, really started the first Trump is going to be awesome. 'cause you're going to buy in right away. You're gonna know right away. How creepy in straight? He's going to be. I think he's gonna kill because he's a weird dude talked before. But in in a good way number eight for the audience glass. The audience has glass at number eight. All right. Ken, Jack, go to number seven in the top five. I got three Disney guys in a rogue police story four as my number seven. I liked the ending at Toy Story three. So I'm just curious how the kind of bring it back into the fold. But can't go wrong all of them have been great. So we'll see or maybe do go wrong. But I'm eating regardless. Yeah. Toys story four I didn't put Toy Story four miles. It would have been top fifteen. Man. I don't know it. The the ending three. They are three right doubting. It seems ridiculous. But the choice three three ending was so perfect. You're just like, man. I don't know. We'll see we'll see number seven for you, Mr. bones cats. Hell, yeah. I had to put cats on this list because I don't think it's going to be great. But I certainly wanna see bus for Jones. That's I mean, the the content we're gonna make with that movie. Lewis. It's gonna be it's gonna be fantastic for the brand. It's incredible. Yeah. Cats just miss my list at number eleven I I'm very excited to see the top ten. This year is very tough to break through the cats also came in on the audience outside the top fifteen, but I think that's because I think I think our voting gets a little more mainstream because it's now with people listen to the pot. So I think the cats thing might get a little lost in translation there. But it was still top twenty. Number seven for me is Spiderman far from home. And honestly if Jake g wasn't in. It is probably what he's can be top ten Jay jonelle. That's enough for me right up there with walking Phoenix on my favorite actors. So have to put it up there far from home number seven. I didn't have it on my list. There's so much going on comic book movies this year. Yep. I it's hard to be excited for it. I mean, I am I am excited for it. But compared to some of the other movies. No, not so much. Did I say number for the audience glass that I skipped that they already? Okay. Definitely sick last year. Okay. Number seven four the audience is the Irishman platform shoes. Yeah. Yeah. The Martin Scorsese movie, which is supposed to be on Netflix. But you never know what Netflix when it will be released. So I don't know. But it's come out and twenty nineteen I'm excited. But that wouldn't you know, literally nothing about with the exception of the platform shoes. I feel like. Jim Norton was in it. He actually in an interview and talked about that partial all right so seven for me Spiderman far from home seven from trill cats from Kenji Toy Story, four seven for the audience. The Irishman Ken Jak number six sixes Aladdin. And I think this is going to be good. I'm big fan of pretty much. Saying please Jaffar was in the angel a movie about massad operations in Jordan Syria is really cool. And he was awesome in it. And I think he's going to be getting this as well. Saint with boy Wilson. So I'm a fan. I'm a fan. I think it's going to be really good. Aladdin not on my list, not on the audience this list. Either actually barely the audience is top twenty which is interesting. And I wonder if the Will Smith thing had to do with it trill number six member six is captain marvel. Could pick a little more excited. I'm about to more excited for captain marvel than you as our that's I mean, I it's my top ten is all very close, captain marvel. It's one of those things where in hindsight after see we could be like, oh my God. We showed it worked cited for that. Because this has potential the really flop because they're putting a big time character in this. That has a lot of imports kind of ought to know where really quickly. So there's a chance it could fail. But it could also just be amazing. It's a brand new character. We all love. All right number six for me, the lion. King the line king number six number six for the audience once upon a time in Hollywood thought it would be top five. You got a little go out a lot of replies about this on Twitter, but just miss out matab five top five time, Ken, Jack number five into spent movie for twenty nineteen number five is the king cast is cast in the nation in the studio and everything involve it's almost too big to fail type in which doesn't promising when you put it like that. But the same time there's no way this. This doesn't. Do. Well. The thing for me. And that's interested number six is just the intrigue of how it's going to play out. What it's going to look like the music like it is a very intriguing whether you give a shit about this soft reboot or whatever you wanna call. It is intriguing to see what that tech as matter as it would say will look like. Karen? Trill number five number five is Jimmy man and hear me out. I know, but but here's why I'm excited for this movie's been in production hell since nineteen Ninety-seven and originally Tony Scott a rest in peace was attached to the movie, and now angrily is gonna be helming. Which is why excited not only? Do you get angry get Will Smith is playing an assassin, which is that's the type of stuff. I wanna see we'll Smith. Do. I wanna see well Smith and assassin form give them to me, Clive Owen thick it could be I think it could be really bad. Don't get it could be really bad. It's on my list because I make side to see what comes out of this. I'm really surprised that's on your list. It's the pro locate the premise Henry Brogan an aging assassin like me seeking to exit his career finds himself going against a younger clone of himself like Ken Jak who can project his every move is that not that not sound like extremely my shit. Sounds like a plot of berry. Extremely my ship. So gem is it Jimmy. Jim or Jimmy Jimmy how they first I man. Oh. Is what they called it in. What do you call it? I man. Gemini, and I yeah, it'd be Jimmy. That was my brain say it. I'm just going to say they're wrong. That's just nice. The guy the guy who created this my ultimate exam. This the guy who created the gif says it's Jif it's just not gift stands for ethic interchange format that's a hard Jeet. It's gift the guy who whoever invents Gemini wrong. It's Gemini hate for it. Because that's why they kept him out of the Golden Globes gnomes, dick. Dick. My number five, John wick chapter three para bellum, or whatever they're calling it. Now this movie if this movie can pull off being great, and there's three and there's three good movies in this franchise. That's insanity. Because again, I've said many times this is a franchise that was laughed at when the first trailer came out with the dog dying. And like, oh, my God counter and a dog what is this? And now it's now it's considered one of the best action franchises. So yes, very very excited for this one. All right, number five four the audience. Some be land to top five. Full right true. They're making a prequel for Saami land with Billy Dee Williams about what's it? Call samba Landau. Folks. I hear they're going to tie in a zombie land with the butter company. You know, it's going to be called. Oh, that's here. Zombie Landau lakes. Ooh. Love it though. Prequel? Number four movies, your most anticipated for twenty nineteen Ken, Jack John McMahon, you'd be to it. But I'm big fan. John wick for the first one was incredible. The second one a little bit less good, the more the people they introduced, although I did like the dish of Laurence Fishburne and more of what's his name frigging guy from deadwood? I was forget his name old man young heart from hot rod. Yeah. But I don't know. It's something at some Irish shit. I don't know, but always English actor, but it's a code. I'm big fan of him in Shane in McShane. But yeah, no, I like to John one ton second, not so much this one I think is going to be that picture. I need to see what the horses involved in a need to know, why the us riding horse and while he was riding a horse in New York City shooting at people on motorbikes. Like I wanna find out what happened and I'm a big fan of. Only Newark, I'm just a I need to see it. I see I like Joan with to almost watches the original. I love them. Both. The first one a little bit more because it was just like a straight revenge story. But then the like the addition of the colty stuff too high society of Essenes, I'm not rejoicing with too much fair. His comment. The actual fight corral. Sick sick is Ohio. Yeah. That whole entire scenes insane. Trouble number four number four is ventures endgame. Wow. Okay. Well, you're not as big as you're not as big of a moral guys can Jack. And that is very fair. I'm not, and I think I know how this one's going to end. I don't think we do. No. I don't at all. But I I'm excited for it. But there's three other movies more except for. Nine number four Godzilla king of the monsters. Wow. That's high. Yeah. Again, I have talked about this. This movie has a big potential of of being a movie that has a great trailer and could be bad. Because that's the trailers are sometimes it scares me. But also the movies great. I'm gonna pay so much respect to the trailers for getting me this hyped up. The are incredible. Both of them are I'm very Zillah icon school island or at previous ZOA. I was okay with previous Zil. I thought the way they went about doing. It wasn't great the needs to be more Godzilla. But the movie is a whole wasn't all that bad. And I was okay with and that's why it's crazy and this hype. But I think it's a trailer the trail is fucking cool for this movie. I think it's going to deliver. But declared a loon. Yeah. In the second one the second seed in theaters now for few weeks, and it's pretty awesome number four for the audience detective Pika chew. How about that? I like that pick. Yeah. I like you to not my. Ten but I'm really excited for -tective Pika. Chew trailer is good. Yeah. I think right around a good pick. All right number three top three starting to get serious here. I kind of guess what I feel like Ken, Jack. And you're gonna going to send his top three. Maybe in a different order, Ken, Jack. What's your number three? My number three's us was that. He was of you're expecting. That's my number three as well. That's three as well. Now, let's go to. I love the love to obviously during peel love the entire cast. And that put five on it trailer was fucking awesome. It was so cool and. Jeff here. Tim. Hi Deckers in this movie. He is. No. You can spirit joke. If. You know, I'm going to say it anyway in a second so still my thunder. Yeah. Whatever Jack says, great joy. He'll come on the really isn't much more to say about this. And it's coming out in three months. We sprays. Because I just came out but out in three months. This is one of those ones. Unlike Guiso, right? Don't see how this is not good. Right. Like, we said that about I man vice and some people didn't like it. But this one I truly think is going to be great. Maybe I keep saying that will keep being wrong who knows number three for the audience joker. So we all had us at number three the audience had joker. Number three, Ken, Jack, number two. My number two is going to be vendors endgame, and you can't we see how ends and you know, tunnel built around it. I am I feel like eventually now starting a little bit of superhero movie fatigue, like slightly because it's been so main so many of them have been really good. But like, I'm I'm not sure how can get much better especially after movie like spider verse which was so unique and different than these movies that like now have a new bar set. Rummage this needs to be another level of awesome. So little less excited than my next bit. I see I wouldn't say fatigue for me because I'm not I've I've argued if teeth before I think, I'm agreeing with you. And what you're saying though, because I think my standards are definitely higher standards are higher. And I'm I'm quicker to dismiss a comic movie, if it doesn't meet crazy. Good standards for sure spider versa. Really good example of that of like, you can still make these pretty unique. If you go about it the right way. So that's not an excuse. Trill number two. I don't know what your number. I know what you're number one is. I don't know. Your number two is John wick three. Jolly chapter three. Could tick need I say more not really my number two pick is going to be Star Wars Episode nine which is some how some way still untitled. But stars episode night is my number two. It's close. Actually, it's not close number one is number one by a long shot just in that hype mode right now, but Star Wars very firmly number two very excited for that movie. But still a year away audience number two stars of nine. Go ahead. Drew, you think it's going to Jeddah in the title. I don't know. That'd be weird to have the same thing. Tile back toback movies. That sounds like a stupidest thing, but it just seems weird. It's definitely not gonna shut I in the title. I didn't. I didn't connect dots. I don't know. All right. Number one. I assume you're both picking stalwarts episode nine s that's correct. Okay. All right. So you're say your piece talked about it. I'm really excited to see what JJ does in terms of incorporating snow and to some larger elements of the plot explaining the lineage of raise parents and also the Han resurrection scene will be really good yet. It's finally repairing years of damned done to this. French fries by Ryan, John. And he's destroyed it finally bring back some characters that I loved from the prequels, you know, like Georgia beings, nude golden Ray people like that made star were our wars. Piccola bacon lines like, you know, the jet evil in my opinion, great line from Star Wars. I mean, be more of that moving forward super happy. We have JJ back. Like, you say we're going to have raised aides explained to us very ham. Fisted -ly I really want Han back and I can't wait for smoke to come back as a mechanical monster with robot lakes. I just. My dick hasn't worked since December fourteenth twenty seventeen and because they ruined the Star Wars franchise, and I'm just really excited for December. Twentieth. Twenty nineteen in and just to regain partial punctuality of it. Same thing here because of stars less jet. I haven't had sex since twenty sixteen. You missed one of the most iconic Star Wars lines and the prequels excuse me. But the most safest place would be gung in city. Real. Can you believe anybody thinks that last jet I ruin after fucking stuff like that? Keeping the mouth shut because we're going to be doing this in eleven months, excuse me, the most safest place Guber fish, another good line. You know, when you've been friends with like someone long enough where you start to kind of get tired of them. Yes. I think that's like kind of maybe what our audience is going to do to us like hang out with us so much and they're retired of us. These guys are like our friends, and they're going to be like kinda hate the way Fook and Kim Jack and trill think they're so high and mighty on Star Wars when westjet I was actually a terrible movie. It's cool. You think that I liked it? It's the antithesis that we're saying that we don't think we're high and mighty you think that we're like, no, I I agree. I think we're I think for two dumb asses in one smart guy. We're all three dumb people. We haven't said to words yet this podcast. All no, we definitely need. Two other very important. The hope he listened this entire time. Just that he he thought that he with an episode without a saying olds and normies. You made it didn't you? Gives me so much joy at this. Happy. I can only imagine what some of these Norma listeners. What look like unlike my list that which has The Lion King and and ventures in game two to indie films. Yes. I'm normally. Okay. I fully admit that. We are all I like, Ed Sheeran. Okay. Me. He's not threatening. My number one vendors then game. I just there's not much more to say about this. I don't want another trailer just released the movie now need to see it can't fucking wait. Yep. Audience number one of injures endgame also zero to my Deckers enough to know that folks spoke spoke to hear about this. Did he oh I watched the Taylor swift reputation stadium? Was it it was. It was right. I yeah. I scrub through saw like I'm less familiar with. I just wanted to hit the highlights. But I wanted to see what our tour looked like man that was some like just cool set design stage design was it really cool show to watch it, then I like to swift. Norgays? How dare you say that? All right. So top-five for me, John wick three Godzilla king a monster off Star Wars avengers trill. Gemini, man, avengers endgame us. John wick three Star Wars, Ken, Jack, The Lion King, John wick three us vendor. Star Wars audience samba land detective Pika chew joker Star Wars. Vendors endgame honorable mentions for me, I mentioned a couple cats. Definitely just miss my list. The audience eleven was Spiderman far from home twelve dark Phoenix thirteen the line king, fourteen Toy Story, four hell boy LEGO movie to John wick, and then jumped really far down the list. Michelle. That was the today. Twenty six cats makes it in the top twenty fast and furious presents this is called the Hobson Shaw. Fast and furious story just fucking go full. He'll just just Bayreuth into it copy Star Wars. There's actually there's a fast fear. I'm not gonna say anymore. I'll say it off pot. I wanna spoil anything Barry any any honorable mentions. Most of mine were mentioned you detective Pekic shoe Godzilla glass artists foul once upon a time for Hollywood and waiting for someone to artists. Only. Joe double take her. The one I left off was twice story four you guys addressed it. I'm just not all that excited about Toy Story four I'm still kind of excited by it. But I just I was done mentally dawn. I'm with you. I just I don't know. And I hate saying it because it makes you sound like the people who say starwars room my childhood. Which by the way, before before they said Ryan Johnson ruin stores than people who say George Lucas fucked my childhood, but they use different word. There's a song about it. Probably a south part about it. Anyway, I don't wanna complain about Toy Story four that way. But twister three hundred. So great. All right. I think that's sit on that. Anything else? We're up this podcast up. Dunn's oh, reviewing Feis and the meal next week. Vice? The bill. Racism, cinematic universe from Clint Eastwood charming racing. Get in. Harry potter. The one that was now. Ship. Good for safety. They never take me. Then my knees. Aleve complete. You never say never. But. Much. Pitches. Put on display, I'm gonna get they don't give the nut sake. Feet on the ground. You ready for? Right.
