"Don't you know who I am? Because she obviously looks the same. So when she says, well, why would I pass? I have everything I've ever wanted. Clearly, there is something you want that you can't have unless you pass. And so she does, but she's also judging Claire for passing permanently as opposed to situationally. Yeah. I really like the way that Rebecca Hall sort of plays with that in the beginning because for the first probably ten, 15 minutes, when Tesla toxins character is making her way into that hotel. And even in the toy store where she's at or the movie begins. The way the hat is framed into the use of the hats is her way of sort of passing. She constantly keeps her head sort of tilted downwards and the wide brim of those sort of sheer hat. She doesn't want them to look too closely because then if they look too closely, she might not be able to pass. There's always sort of like that element of danger or being found out. And so they're sort of hypocrisy that lies within that character. I saw the movie at Sundance earlier this year, and then I read the book for the first time just a few days ago before I rewatched the movie again because I wanted to see what the comparison would be and also it's a very short book. It's only a hundred pages. So it was easy for me to get to be very quickly. But it was interesting to see how flawed the Irene character is. She's not a perfect character. Even though she hasn't chosen to pass, and she sort of makes that sort of her point of pride, it's like I would never pass. She has these horrible thoughts sometimes about Claire and she wrestles with those horrible thoughts and about the way in which he feels as though Claire has betrayed her race. And I feel like the movie kind of deals with that a little bit at the beginning, but then doesn't it kind of lets it go and it becomes more about the sort of worries and concerns about the possibility that there could be something going on between her and her husband played by Andre Holland, who I think is wonderful in this. And it becomes more sort of like a domestic drama that I thought anyway and less about the sort of passing it kind of receipts in the background for me and I'm curious if you felt that way at all or what your thoughts were. I also got some interesting possible homoerotic tones going on between them that I didn't get in the book. Yeah, I didn't get in the book either. Yeah. See, I always have gotten in the book. Yeah, I didn't see that. But you did, Brittany? I'm more so think of it as like about desire. Something that I felt like was different. The book has a very deliberate pace. I feel like the hairs on the back of my neck stand up when I read the book, even though I know what's going to happen. But in the movie, I realize it reminded me a lot of an erotic thriller. But the idea of someone's trying to break up a marriage and whatever. Yeah. I think some of the reasons why things can't translate is just because so much of Irene's not just domestic anxieties, but her racial anxieties come through in a sort of her internal monologue that we are a privy to as the reader..

"Be long dad makes long. What are you talking about show. We'll be teetering right now for absolutely under listen. Rebecca hall is the draw. And the reason why i went to see this. I mean because it's not my kind of movie. So it's a horror thriller a psychological thriller movie. It's one of those movies where it's not. They're not playing branson very very quiet. Slow plodding movie. And so here's a story. She lives in this beautiful beautiful house on a lake out there and like upstate new york right and we we learn right away that her husband died recently like she's still in that i'm getting casseroles from neighbors You know she yet and She's very upset. that he's gone and then We soon learn that He killed himself. That's how went and there was no signs or anything of him being arrested. She was the one with demons him. She was the one who looked dark thoughts not him. So how'd this happen. What's going on and and and there are some haunting is going on. The house is doing odd things houses doing strange things and instead of being freaked out like like we've we've come to to see time and time again with horror movies like it's always the women and i gotta go. Hi we're gonna let away. She's bad ass. She's like an alpha in this movie. Which i really appreciated that. That side of the storytelling but creepy things are happening. Like bloody footprints on the dock. Where she You know there's a dock at the bottom of their her house outside right up on a lake house that he built and ultimately we're spending a whole lot of time with her dealing with the grief dealing with the loss and then some haunting occurrences here and there in a couple of like jump scares and a couple of interesting things they do with the camera whereas somebody there is they're not is you know that thing where you're you'd think you're is or when you're really tired. You think you're playing tricks on you. I used to do it. When i'd be up for three or four days like back in my day and i'd i'd walk out front and sort of troubles every car on my on the block. Look like somebody who's sitting in front seat. It was horrifying bright. I had the headrest. If you're tired enough will look like you know. They'll look at people sitting guard. So by the time everything said and done especially. It's one of those movies. Where kind of like enemy. If you remember that would shake journal. The very last very last shot is just like kind of just leaves you empty. And i don't know if that's what filmmakers going for but even bruckner Yeah really quiet. And this is another critic type movie. This is a movie that they're going to like the subtleties But they're like like there's just not enough meat on the bone for me. I said my little youtube review if you liked reading dark poetry. I think you're really going to respond to a movie like this. Why critics going so so hard for a horror thriller movie usually. They're kind of hard on this. Yeah this is less winker. Yeah this is intellectual and it's really what it's saying is like you don't really ever know who you're with. You don't really know their secrets. Because there's a whole lot of her trying to figure out what he was up to what he was all about. She's finding pictures of other women on his phone and then she was like going to the places. She's finding books like oh. He bought this book and this this rare bookstore. That's like an hour and a half from here that's weird. I didn't know that he went to this bookstore. So then she goes there and piecing things together. And i'm just like i don't fucking care. I really didn't care that much but watching her. She's on the screen. I'd say the majority of the time about as bad as often as sundance green lights moves before their shot like ninety ninety five percent of the time. She's on the screen and she is just she's a force she's a four. I like her. Quite evesham won't be up for an award for this one because it's not the kind of movie but she she she should i mean she's she's like a great spiga buffer. There's a little bit of tenant in this movie to a little bit of like The underworld the backwards and different lanes and y'all multi-diverse kind of thing like planes of existence can't talk too much about it. You haven't seen it. And i don't want to give the husband. I don't think he can. I'm doing. I don't know if you can't i just did it. And then there's there's this one scene in particular and if you've seen the movie you guys know what i'm talking about where she goes out with her co workers and our co worker. All kinda put off by her behavior she's She's been kind of blunt force trauma with dealing with the loss of her husband. She explains to them that she brings out the either the death note the suicide note that he wrote a right. And there's a little thing in there about nothing. And i'm like oh i know where they're going with this. I was going to be a reveal. And it's going to mean this instead of that and i kind of saw. I totally saw that actually and in fairness to give credit to the filmmakers. They didn't they didn't make a giant deal about that one. That revealed did come but it was a little bit like okay. Okay all right and it didn't really work from even reveal. Don't hate this movie it's a. It's a solid three star movie. Not my kind of movie..

Fasten fever rebecca hall stars in this ghost story. That's why we went about a woman. Grieving her death all stuck in a house he designed. It's kind of amusing house that somehow. They seem to afford on her teacher salary and his architect salary. I there's a lot that's confusing this movie. Fanny what happened this movie. We're going full spoilers. The night house. Did you like it. And what app can we go full. Spoilers because i if you're saying what happens and you want me to go full spoilers. I don't know if i can do that. I can tell you what i think happened in what i liked this movie. Tell about the halfway mark. And then i was sort of in until about the three quarters mark and then i was like yeah. I'm out because you had a lot of really neat ideas like cool stuff that you've looked like somebody went online and learned a lot of like cool supernatural things that they were into you and they wanted to incorporate it into a movie but then they didn't wanna actually commit to any of it they just wanted to allude to all of it so they did nothing at all with the plot so they had a great premise with no plot. Rebecca hall is great. The girl from berries is really good. Everybody this is beautifully shot. I wanna go live in that house. I mean not the house that turns into people and kills you. But i want to go live in that. Go visit that actual house but this movie if anything just made me sad because it's fucked it all up. Yeah really. what'd you think. I mean you turn to me like well.

That are not scary and nobody is scared. When something computer animated in shape shift he goes in the background while our main characters in the front. This movie had me hooked almost immediately. It the first scare because get something that somebody could see in a very real way out of insides you could and not because of a special effect. It probably was a special effect. By the way it's presented was just column like the silhouette of a person that turned to look at you. As you turn your head was brilliant. And the movie really plays on that builds. And i was like i'm scared. I don't know what's happening. And she's gonna comfortable husband and you're like where's his awesome. Go story going. There's like creepy architecture plans.

"You need a card built for business. Rebecca hall shows some bristling energy in the otherwise turban. Ghost thriller the night house by stephanie's hr if there's one reason to view oscar taste makers with skepticism. It's the career of rebecca hall. She's one of our finest most daring actors but year after years she fails to make a blip on the academy's radar although she has won after and plenty of critics groups. Love her part of the problem. If you view this sort of thing as a problem is that she tends to choose challenging roles laced with subterranean complexities and professor marston. And the wonder woman twenty seventeen. She played a brainy assured freethinking academic who helps bring a comic book heroine life and her dazzling heroin portrayal of troubled florida. Tv newswoman christine chubby in the two thousand sixteen christine was one of the finest performances of that year. Though hall has been working in movies for more than fifteen years and has directed a terrific soon to be released first feature passing adapted from the nella larsen avella. She still has the aura of an under the radar favorite a performer. Who keeps us guessing as to what her next move might be. That's a long way of saying that i'd watch hall in anything. But david brookner's go sti grief thriller. The night house isn't worthy of her gifts hall. Plays beth at recently widowed teacher living somewhere in woodsy upstate new york. Her husband owen committed suicide with a handgun. She didn't even know he owned. He also left an enigma attic. Note that she can't fully comprehend. Beth always thought they'd be happy enough and now she's left to wonder why he'd take his own life. That would be a big enough heap of stress for any woman's plate but owen apparently hasn't fully passed into the beyond the stereo turns on by itself in the middle of beth's mostly sleepless nights. She sometimes feels her husband's presence so strongly. She's compelled to wrap her arms around. It's invisible form. These signs and signals aren't all comfortingly benign. Beth keeps seeing bloody footprints on the dock outside the couple's lakeside house and when pressed beth's kindly neighbor mel played by von d. Curtis hall always a welcome presence informed sir. That owen had exhibited some alarming behavior when he was alive. Mel had withheld these details from bath in order to protect her but now he sees they have more meaning in the wake of owens. Death hall is terrific at playing characters dancing on the knife edge. And that's what she brings to the night house. Beth is a woman. Dressed in com- muted tones of lenin. Even as she's bristling with confusion. Sometimes you'd swear you can see her nerve endings through her skin and one of the movies best scenes something of a throwaway but one that perfectly conveys beth's state poised precisely between jittery fragility and dj af recklessness. She unleashes her diplomatic vitriol. All on the mother of a student who has come to negotiate a better grade for her offspring. It's a terrific and slightly odd moment when that briefly jolts this mostly turbine film to life but brooker working from a script. By ben collins and luke piotrowski leans in so hard on loud scary noises and overly elaborate plot twists that some of his more subtle and effective touches get lost for instance the way a light shining out into the misty knight just barely reveals the outline of a man so minimally. You're not sure you really saw it. Hall strives to carry the night house on her more than capable shoulders but she can't quite compensate for the moments when the movie is outright silly or worse boring as beth. She's a woman capable of seeing things. We can't stranded in a story that doesn't trust her in nick. Matic power meet lucy. Bella owner of fancy flowers business was slow until lucy received an email wedding date february fourteenth flowers only red roses. Valentine's day the most expensive day for red roses so she used her american express business card. Which gives you the ability to pay overtime with interest so she can buy those red roses. Now talk about love and bloom built for business by american express. Don't do business.

"Was this revolt. That i uncovered that occurred in seventeen. O eight in. What's now queens. Where i couldn't even find the name of the woman who led that revolt through a combination of you know being denied access to archives because of racism to the vagaries of what documents are preserved and not over hundreds of years And so be that became a very fragmented story that had to be. I had to kind of triangulate. It in order to kind of recover it at all And what i did recovers quite frank mature like i said. I don't have the name of the woman who led it you know. She was referred to as benico. Fiend or the negro wench And i i would. I would like to know i would like to know her name and that would only happen With access to the court records.

But i would to spend quite a bit of time in albany and to see if i can find these particular court records of the court and terminates deputy listeners like find it out for the person that you find those court records yes seriously. That'd be amazing. No it's that whole process. I found absolutely fascinating Especially the trip. You take to lloyd's of london. Where're you know you. Basically you're fighting through the modern day. Racism you know pretty clearly portrayed and then just the fact that they would even potentially have those documents was something that never occurred to me. You know the insures here sleeps like that. They would still exists in those. What what do you think is the case if any that they would make those documents available to a historian i mean aside from i suppose public relations and just like ethics it. Wouldn't you would wanna cut. Yeah exactly like what. What do you think would have to happen for them to to.

"Advanced historian nerdy. Geeky thing Another thing if i'm bizarre history education i would start teaching history agassi you know in highschool at but historian graffiti is we take entire courses on that in graduate school. It's you know historical method but it's also kind of the philosophy of history and looking at how history is written and the context. It's written and and i think what surprised me. The most was how invested the historic was in this idea that that this particular type of resistance coordinated acts of violent armed resistance was like a male prisoners it despite the fact that there were primary sources that showed that it wasn't true so it kind of really drove home for me the way in which you know history is always written in a context like a social sociopolitical context and also in conversation with other histories other historians previous historians. And i think this process really made me understand how powerful that is and how it can really hide. What's right in front of people's faces. I don't know if that if that makes if that makes sense. And i think you know when studying the his study slavers. This stance in its history in in the united states. You know for a long time really until the late sixties. The people who wrote the history of slavery were basically You know. I mean in the mainstream and the academy like it you know with is that you know top that history that slavery was this benign institution and that was the civilizing force for for black people. And that's why there was no resistance to slavery in the united states in fantomas. They would make some comparison to like you know unlike that sort of really cruel kind of slavery that happen into caribbean or south america and You know and when people.

I wanted people to understand what the historical research process was like and the obstacles that i faced but You know it's kind of one of those things where like write run one thing and then you end up writing something. Maybe completely. Not what you expect. He's right but that's that's the process. Yeah yeah for sure. This work reminds me too. I didn't interview in this series not so long ago with author quattro historian. Who did this remarkable work of of historical excavation about the black americans who work during the golden age of comics in its idled invisible men. Because it's this history that was existent in terms of documentation Which is very much. You're working here except nineteen forties. So it's like wait modern comparatively right Obviously not obviously but for readers. Who aren't familiar. You document this very successfully in wake but can you speak a little bit about as a historian like what it's like. Excavating like you said these fragmented stories that have been lost. Just sort of the the approach you had to take in terms of like corralling all of this information. Because i think there's maybe some that like oh like you just go and find the book and you know like you read about it like what what was it like trying to fragment all these or put together all these fragments story right. i mean. that's what historians do you know. I think people have in this has to do with how poorly history has taught you know if i could be the car of how history was taught i would have people began right away like In primary school with with primary sources you know. But i think that people have this. I don't know what they beside you. They have about what historians do. But i remember when. I was doing the visual research for this novel because that was something i had to then go do because when i was doing the academic work.

I'd ever done before and when i tried to find resources. That could teach me how to do it. You know that's kind of my approach. Like fine twenty books and read them They're they're really very little out there on writing for this medium if you're not the artist as well so the. The process of blake collaborating with an artist We ended up having to to wing it really And it was. Also you know hugo's first big project. I mean. He had done some web comics before but So it was really kind of a learning curve for all of us. And how much time do we have. Because i don't know how much detail that you can go into these. These are usually between like forty minutes to an hour so we got. We got plenty of time. Okay so okay. So let's go a little bit more in depth. So when the book was bought by simon and schuster.

"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam are and I'm Josh Larsen. Every magic trick consists of three parts first. Paul is cool. The pledge magician shows you sound olery columns bird or May that was Michael Cain right. We're done with the trip. That was Michael. Cain with some of the opening narration from Christopher Nolan's The prestige we revisit the directors fifth feature as part of our Nolan who've review this week in addition to that we're going to recommend to new films that recently came to the od the vast of night and the painter and the thief that more. Are you watching closely ahead on film spotting? Welcome to film spotting. Josh in an alternate timeline. We'd be spending this post Memorial Day weekend show singing the praises most likely of fast and furious nine. Oh Yeah I'm sure I'm sure we'd both be huge fans I haven't been keeping up with. What would have been released because it mostly depresses me. So this is to me after nine atom as the as the real fans would call it. Don't let Debbie here that that was supposed to come out because she'd probably forced me into a fast and furious marathon at home in memory of it instead. Of course we are talking about films new. Vod We're going to do a little golden brick spotting in this episode. Indeed there are two new films that meet the criteria for our golden brick or D- that's are overlooked or under unforeseen film of the year. Honor that we give to a mostly newer at least new to US filmmaker. We've both seen the new documentary the painter and the thief and I'm also going to recommend the vast of night that's a low budget sci-fi thriller that comes to Amazon Prime this weekend. Of course we're also pinning all our hopes of summer movie season on the theoretically opening tenant the latest from Christopher Nolan. Somehow the word theoretically there just seems so appropriate when talking about Christopher Nolan Anyway. That is still scheduled as of this recording anyway to come to theaters on July seventeenth seven. Seventeen chosen for being a gallon. Drome like the title of the film. Josh I'm sure that you knew that and we can trust. Christopher Nolan is GonNa try to be Oh so clever. Right yes now. A surprise. Our Own Nolan who've review which has revisiting all of Nolan's films is currently scheduled to wrap up in time for that July seventeen release otherwise all of this preparations going to be for naught. Joshua we need ten to get to the big screen in the meantime. We're going to get to his two thousand six film. The Prestige perform this feat in a manner and never before seen by yourselves or any other audience anywhere in the world. Odeon SELECTA is trees topnotch. You'd celebrate a real magician. Tries to weaver something you got something other. Magicians will scratch their heads over spoke. You have such a tweet as you're gonNA remember me for what happened. Just mentioned triggered overseen. I need to know how he does it. He has no. It's real every great. Magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called the pledge every Great Christopher Nolan movie consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called the pledge. The filmmaker shows you something ordinary with his fifth feature set in late nineteenth century London. It's two rival. Magicians Hugh Jackman sophisticated. Showman. Robert in Jira and Christian Bale's committed professional Alfred. Borden the filmmaker shows you these characters. Perhaps he asks you to watch them to see if they are indeed real on altered normal but of course they probably aren't. The second is called the turn. The filmmaker takes these characters and makes them part of something. Extraordinary are period piece becomes gothic science fiction a meditation on the moral limits of science in pursuit of knowledge the consequences of obsession. Now you're looking for the secret but you won't find it because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You WANNA BE FOOLED. But you wouldn't clap yet because one of our magicians finally winning isn't enough. Our minds have to be blown. That's why every magic trick has a third act. The hardest part the part we call the prestige fairly early. In the film. Bordon's life Sarah played by Rebecca Hall reveals. He's going to be a father. He shows her the trick. That's going to put food on their table. A bullet catch which he performs for her to prove. It's safe like any of us. Observing great trick. She wants to know the secret and insist. She can't comfortably allow him to do it unless she understands the mechanics of it he relents she replies disappointedly once. You know it's so obvious Josh. Any rewatch of the prestige requires that you know the twist and equipped with that knowledge. It does all seem well pretty obvious like Sarah did that Lee disappointed or even more impressed with Nolan sleight of hand. I am really glad you asked this question because it helped me clarify a little bit. It helped me locate one of the reasons. Why and I'll stay at say at the front here. This is still topped here. Nolan for me really love this film. I think it's incredibly strong. But your question. Help me locate one of the reasons why. I might have liked it a little bit less this time around. And it's not so simple as knowing the twists or knowing the surprises because confession. I don't think I watched the prestigious since two thousand six and I had mostly forgotten how everything unfolded now. Yeah the hints and clues pieced together in advance in a way that I did not in. Oh six but it's different from not knowing anything so I was still pretty much in the dark as this movie began. So it's not just that I knew the answers. It's and I'm not sure it disappoints even in terms of its reveals but in comparison is something like as before we started recording. You had mentioned the six cents so comparison to something like that which we did revisit just last year And is another case where it it hugely depends on its reveals. Its twists turns. It surprises

"So. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt. What was born on October eleventh eighteen eighty four in Manhattan to socialites Anna Rebecca hall in Eliot book Roosevelt from an early age. She started going by her middle name Eleanor. Oh, really? Okay. So her mother's name was also Anna, okay to prevent confusion. I get it. Her father Elliott was president Theodore Roosevelt's brother making teddy her uncle. And he was also her godfather. I'm her mother who gonna tell you. She's a real bench. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Her mother nicknamed her Grammy because she acted in such a serious banner when she was a child. That's mean. Yeah, she was a b I t of JR. For sure so Eleanor adored. Her father Elliott who was always really kind to her and she had two younger brothers Elliott junior in Gracie hall who went by hall. It also turned out that she had a half brother named Elliott Roosevelt, man. Her beloved father had had an affair with one of the family servants. Katie, man. Yes skin now. So when owner was just eight years old her mother died suddenly from diptheria in December eighteen ninety two. So she's eight years old. She's been living with her mean mother, all this time her mom always said that she wasn't pretty and that she was too serious, and that she wasn't ever going to amount to anything Elinor put a percent hurry. And then she died of diptheria. So we should all fear little. But then her brother Elliott junior died of scarlet fever the following may. So back to old Elliott Roosevelt senior at some point during Eleanor shout hood, he developed himself a pretty severe drinking problem at one point. He was confined to a save Terry in Paris by the Roosevelt family in eighteen ninety four in New York City. He died after I attempting suicide by jumping out of a window. What? So he was like in a he had his like the delirium tremendous fit any through myself out of a window. He didn't die from falling out the window. He survives the fall. But he died from a seizure afterward. Oh my gosh. So, but before her father died, he implored Eleanor to act as a mother to her remaining brother hall, and she made good upon this promise for the rest of hall's life, so eleanor's childhood losses left her prone to depression throughout her life. Her brother hall. He also. So from Oklahoma them, so yeah, we'll get into him. So after the deaths of both of her parents owner was raised in the household of her maternal grandmother, Mary Livingston Ludlow in Tivoli, New York. Mary was the great granddaughter of Robert r Livingston the chancellor of New York who administered the presidential oath of office to George Washington in seventeen eighty nine out of here. And he also served on the second continental congress committee that helped to draft the declaration of independence, so presidential connections. All right off the past. So yeah, the Livingston family was like an important family in American history. So yeah, no kidding living with her very stern maternal grandmother as a child. Eleanor was really insecure probably again 'cause mother I'll who is called her boring and ugly. And then her father who she spent her whole childhood trying to impress committed suicide. So she was basically starved for affection, which is very sad. But at age fourteen in eighteen ninety eight she to Allenwood academy, which was a private finishing school in Wimbledon outside of London where she said, she spent the happiest three years of her life Sheila in foreign languages, literature music, art, dance, while all the all the things and Eleanor was deeply influenced. By the school's headmistress. She was called Marie sue Vesta. She was noted educator who encouraged independent thinking in young women. Marie also privately taught Eleanor history geography and philosophy and accompanied her on trips across Europe. Eleanor was also captain of her field hockey team. They're good for her. Yep..

"So an example of a joke, they tried. It wasn't physical comedy that just fell flat is not clever. It all was Rebecca hall plays Dr grace heart, and she's a doctor and their Watson or I'm sorry homes, especially as very surprised that a woman is a doctor, and it's like a commentary for the time period. Right. But they went on with forty five seconds. It's it's something that could have just been a quick hit quip. And you're like, oh, get guys dumb ass. They're all really stupid because his eighteen whatever. But they drew it out like for, you know, one one hundred thirtieth of the movie, and there's another scene where they're taking self. With an old tiny camera and hits the Queen in the face. And she gets knocked out that was that was when we saw that trailer. And that was that trailer. And that was we the first time we so we looking forward to it. But if you play the episode where we saw the trailer where like holy shit that says that potential to be shit, but we're going to hold out hope that it's not that they're just showing the the norm e parts. Keep saying naked in there. Snuck that that in there just to, you know, make make people laugh to get everybody theater. But no, the whole movie was like that Jeff they stuff during a fuck in crate, like a chess journalist shove the Queen there Kentucky guide. One of the other funny parts that I least got like a sensible simple smile out of was when the kids were fighting each other in the pub. And now they're gambling on the kids. That was when we're talking about like what kind of reminds you of like a wolf air all what is the name of the production company. Gary Sanchez productions. Remind you of Gary Sanchez production that type of thing just having kids fight each other that remind me of that like what it could have been. You know, what else was really annoying was the constant. They did the nineties episode shit that we did where they constantly. Oh that would never happen. Oh, this would ever happen like the constant maga- references, and like all my bag, a hat, constant constant references to maga- culture and stuff like that. It was unbearable. Yeah. Like the conversation they had about the monarch in like the system of government in just very heavy handed. It's not funny. I like. What are some of the other physical gags? So you had the opening gag which we seen in the trailer which was the mosquito, and he does the whole like Sherlock precision, which they did in both the Sherlock TV series, and the Robert Downey junior movies. And maybe they did before that if it's playing off something, but they did that. And then he smacks open the glass case and a bunch of Bs floating around shooting these and then they put the helmet on him and the governor Bs that's like the joke. He smears horsh shit, see rallies character PF t special. What else there's there's like an old an old fashioned fist fistfight scene where Steve Coogan get stabbed in the back. I believe their their housekeeper or landlord or whatever it is has sex with Mark Twain. Right. Right. Mark twain. You know, this guy. Right. What's funny 'cause she's fucking on scene? I thought was the best part because he fights Braun strowman, which is awesome. Because he's a WWE wrestler cameos make my dump brain smile. The funniest part of the movie is like a will Ferrell joke that you'd see those Gary Sanchez felt like an anchorman show keeps like they're going on the Titanic another timely reference. And that's the end of the movie takes place and Billy Zane born in Titanic as Billy's eight they call out Billy's eighteen and I laughed out loud. At that. I thought that was very funny. But was legitimately funny. Yeah. That that's that's the only time. I really laughed and like I people were like me like, oh, you're gonna hate it in the beginning, like, whatever. Okay. That's what you think. Fine. But my expectations were very low. And they somehow didn't meet those experts like it was so fucking stupid. And no, and I use these these two words with comedy all the time finesse and nuance, and they didn't finesse any physical comedy into this movie whatsoever. It was fiddle comedy for the sake of being physical comedy have just isn't funny..

"First of all I asked on our read it to give some quick reviews. I would read some of the good ones make 'em a Y Esa saying that wrong. He's this is a good way to summit up a bunch of unwatchable SNL skits strung together into two hours you quickly realize you're never getting back. It does feel like a bunch of really shitty SNL skits. And I there were actual points in this movie. And there's one CM or they're trying to impress two females. They're in a park, and there it's old time to play the sports. They're playing their passing medicine ball a medicine ball back and forth to each other. I actually thought for a second. I'm like they fill miss out side. This is a real set with this movie seriously made, and I think it was but for there's a few moments like is this like a fucking commentary on bad. Like, this doesn't feel like seriously made movie and not in a way of like, oh, it's a joke. Like, I think are they fucking with us. Like that sounds terrible. It was at times during this movie. I couldn't believe they actually made this. Such a waste even like all you had to do is make something that was remotely within the ballpark of Talladega nights. Which I don't think was that is this like one of my favorite will Ferrell movies. But I don't think it's all that. Great. The. The problem here is you have John C Reilly in welfare. And now, we never know if they'll ever do a movie together again. Yeah. Point because I liked the combination. I think they have good chemistry. I thought they had good chemistry in this movie. I think they play off each other. Really? Well, the problem is the jokes are not funny. So an example of a joke, they tried. It wasn't physical comedy that just fell flat is not clever.

"Look here is the thing about kids one of the things. Anyway, they got gotta get places. And then they gotta get home from those places and things are just different in this economy than they used to be. It's different for parents working at different around the whole idea of latch key kids. It's also different by the way in the age of Uber. Rebecca Howell wrote for wired about the industry being built around getting kids around thanks for being here. Hi, thanks for having me. Henry you I'm wolf thank you. I'm well. So look, let me ask you first of all, and this might seem a really boneheaded question. But why can't Uber? Just be for kids. What do you need a special company or a special apt to be Uber for kids if you know what I mean? Yeah. Sure. Well, right now over according to its terms and services agreement does not want unaccompanied minors on its service. It says the minimum age to ride is eighteen so technically, you're not allowed and Uber drivers aren't quipped to or prepared to be taking care of children. So. These companies have served stepped in to do that. What is then the differentiator for these companies because there are a bunch of Matt their most Marin, California as it happens. But what's when I guess what are the services they offer? So unlike Hoover, or lift you typically would order the night before what they offer essentially our drivers who are extremely background checked or interviewed have their cars expected. They're driving records are looked at. And most of them have a significant amount of child care experience. Sure just on that scheduling thing. So so the deal is that I can't say put a hub skip drive, which is one of these companies on my fourteen year olds phone, and then when he gets out of soccer practice, he can just dial one up, right? That's not the way it works. Not typically the ideas that your child would know when soccer practice ends each Thursday or Tuesday. And do you also the parents would want time to make sure that they're comfortable with the driver? You would get sent the driver info the day before. So you. Would have that information to make sure you're comfortable? So it's not as on demand as sort of Uber lifted, but it's sort of has the ease of being able to track the ride, and you have the optimization sort of benefit of only needing it. When you need you don't need to hire. A babysitter for the entire afternoon. Just because you're you have two kids that need to get from point A point B look show. Let's cut to the chase here. How much is all this gonna cost me? Right. Because I cannot imagine that pre scheduling all these things. Now, having a safety check driver and inspected car, it's not going to be cheap. Right. Yeah. It's certainly a bit more expensive than something like an Uber or a lift ride soon. For instance, one of the services says that they're ride start sixteen dollars and then at six dollars for every fifteen minute increment, but you can also sort of buy in bulk in the sense that if you always know your kids going to need soccer practice pickup you can sort of buy that in advance for the month. Is there one of these that is going to win out in this competition because as you lay out in this article there have been well, at least at least. A couple several even that have failed. Right. I think that will be interesting to sort of look forward in the future is how they kind of expand relationships with the schools, and I think that might that might come into play. And then another thing to sort of look out for as well as how whether they tried to expand in terms of older Americans as well who also need help getting around and could really use a service like this as well. So I think which companies that are comes out on top will really depend on that. But these ones I think zoom can go and hop. Skip driver doing pretty well right now Rebecca hall while reading for wondered about kid oriented Rogers, Rebecca, thanks loppers, Utah links so much you too..
