Quick question while she fiber at Tom Hanks movie. That's a really hard question. The same many from childhood it was big. But I mean, the best one is Forrest Gump off. I think I love Forrest Gump. And I love catch me if he can as well. Oh that is very hard. I wish to affair about this issue. Favorite? Tom Hanks, movies and more growing up for me. Yeah. Great big was pretty awesome already enjoyed splash. And because that movie must have resonated with me because my wife Holly when I bought home for the first time to main mermaid sue on. Yeah. Dressed offers a hand I John dress up as John candy. I sets me was she is the spitting image of that woman in splash. My wife is actually the spitting image of of a combo so committed some Kim bison comment that was a famous AT's modal in this film playing the mermaid and my wife is actually the spitting image of her. And also my house obsessed that film growing up. I look she went and found my my doesn't credit. Anyway, I like Tom Hanks I'm going to have to go with pro a love I do love for scam. So I've said on several occasions on this. Paula for in on this. I I'm gonna sign probably regret and have appalled that. So let's talk about Iraq to Christian bio, he you sort of try to vice a couple of months ago where he plays the China. And and not looks fantastic direct by Adam mccade guy who done the anchorman movies, which John I know you interesting stories come out recently Christian. Bow is such a good method actor we knew this before films machinist and all that stuff under the skin of character. He raid embodied him. He will change physically for member American hustle way, an old white and even now the fis- row vice he was given the option where a fat soon prosthetics, but no he piled on the pounds to look as much like he cannot chiny anyway as part of his method research, he investigated alot about heart attacks because of a narrative point in a film is that he will suffer a heart attack. And he. He was doing science research. He was trying to this covers a certain period of time over the years. He was trying to drop in symptoms that would lead to a heart attack in his portrayal of the row. And he was sitting down the right McKay. Talkin about this a lot. And then at MCI realized when he was directing him that he is starting to notice some of these Simpson's in himself. And he then went to an IRA turns out he was on the verge of having a heart attack. Now, if Christian Bowden do amount of research into his work who happens to Adam ACI, anyway, and Mkhize Bisi said Christian byles acting has saved my life. Wow. A man while Paul from shower lying stuff, but other than that wa-, man. Oh, he can dominant side people can get away bad the hype you if they good actors, but the I love him nothing as this not bad Christian bowel movie, in my opinion, even the term nights one which people slight are still love to this. I love the film, the prestige, which I know on the podcast. I always talk about how much I love it. And I can't wait to hear that live shot at doing about specific about this film. But as one there's one line where Christian bios arguing with with Hugh, Jackman and shock at tit for tat thing. And he goes off. So you still do, you know, notes and that line is stuck in my head..

"You know, the movie the movie like with Pixar, they tell, you know, something. You will lose family. You will lose friends, you will be depressed, and then you will die. Now. Look at this talking Bundy. Big Pixar is not afraid to put hard truth out to people. And especially the kids they want the kids know what they're getting into enjoy this right now these colorful images because there's going to get harder from this point out, this Pixar, Disney is Disney, but I'm saying that this is Disney went to Pixar lo que because you know, they this this movie deals with loss. This booby deals with needing this this movie deals with abandonment issues, and they don't even try to present in a way, there's nice they try to say if you were like this. Then you probably fucking crazy. And that's. And when they went to that point. I did not expect them to go to these areas with that movie. Now, it's not as good as something like inside out. But the format of this film the way they deal with psychological issues, and this is low bit darker than something like inside out inside out, you know, the dealt with issues of depression. But I mean, this right here this like I said this gets into a moment where you have issues where you were downright creepy and you need help. And what I love about it is that it's an format that addresses truth oboe, false happy message. This like they know what I'm saying. This this move is not trying to be nice at all what is doing and that format with it's not only about them just being able to go in and deal with deep issues. What looks like a night, even a family film? But a children's film. Some deep issues in part of that also helps us movie deviate away from a formula that we usually see in a family film. You know, what you have not only a basic three extra picture of that point, eight points equal, but also the characters onto same these typical heroes..

"I just didn't think it was like I said, I don't think it had any substance. But that right there is from this point on where the movie really kicked into gear. And it was almost like it was it was I will agree with. You was almost like they were trying to fill in time until they got to the point where they knew that they had story. And and and you know. I'm looking at this by the way, while I'm thinking about it. I don't know if you saw this. But this is good time to talk about again the art production this because. I thought it was kind of cool because a lot of people might see doesn't oversight. But I thought it was kind of cool the way Bonilla being in Ralph. They don't look fully rented out because I think the video game characters. But then when I saw them interacting with like, the Disney princesses and other characters that weren't them that we're in video games. They looked like, okay. They'll look like million dollars CG characters. Yeah. I thought that that was cool. How subtle they were with that. And not trying to make it obvious. But you know, n even after that point with these princesses, I said, okay, that's cool. That's funny. But I still don't know where this is going, right? And then the movie doesn't even bigger turn around for me from that point on. And I don't know if I don't want to I want to be careful how a brain this up. So I don't wanna spoil anything for anybody here. But. Let's just say that the movie the movie the theme of the movie kicks in around his point in the movie says, oh because we're in the second movie when Ralph part, thank, you know, Ralph in the movie says, no, no, you don't know Ralph now like we know Ralph Ralph is fucked up. Ralph is Ralph is he's downright creep. Ralph me some therapy. Ralph has problems in this in the movie goes into Pixar mood because this is pixel territory where you know, we're picks us says I don't care if y'all kids, you know, if you're watching this movie, you're gonna learn something about hard truths today. Right. You know what I'm saying? Don't let these talking toys and animals full you right here. We don't tell you some depressing shit right now and asked him bomb. If you think we love..

"But when it gets out of the arcade it loses a lot for me. And it just becomes fine. It's never bad. It's a lot of time. Not for me. It's never bet. I'm glad that there's no musical number. I'm glad at no point do Ralph and vanilla decide to break into songs together. And then we'd have covered by Arianna 'Grande for the CD. There is a riana tune here. But yes, they don't sing. Yes. And Randy Newman had a song and Toy Story. But it doesn't bother me because it's not Woody singing it some day. I think we just need to review Toy Story. So I can actually be really positive about a cartoon here. It's a wannabe Toy Story. And so I'll give it a wannabe green arrow. You know? It's it's so recommend. I think it's a fine movie. I think the younger you are the brighter. Green arrow, it's going to be. And then I also think a lot of the stuff that I love about this movie completely lost on you. She didn't grow up with. It's a very fine balancing act this movie's trying to do, but I'm with Stewart, I think you can go up from here. I think you could have a more even movie now that the characters have been introduced I'm curious what happens when they go on the internet. This movie started off like it would be the road trip movie. They were thinking about doing with Ralph and Felix. But it ended up not being that at all. They just broke down and candy land and got stuck there. The next time. I'm very curious to see what happens to an aid big game in a hundred twenty eight bit world. I'm looking forward to next week. But yeah, I'm going to recommend this movie. And it's not even a reserved recommend. I said it earlier, I think it accomplishes. Everything it set out to do. It's just never going to speak to me outside of that first half hour. I hope they find a way to merge new characters and old next week a little bit better. See an scares me about next week. Is I'm afraid that they're going to go for that audience that they feel like they missed and we're gonna get a bunch of candy crush jokes and Facebook jokes. We'll see. Yeah. That emoji movie is a big hit our into saying, it was really it. Really was oh, I thought bombed because everyone hated it. And yet somehow it will have a sequel people hate watched it. I did for about ten minutes. And then I just hated it. Like, oh, I love. How is feel like okay? I'm out. That's just wrong that it did not kind. Pissed. Meanwhile, if you want some things that also deserve the poop emoji, but not this week night Shyamalan early in the night shove, the good years. We just covered six six last week. And this Friday will be touching on his follow up unbreakable. And this one's important because it's the movie that lays the foundation for where they're headed with glass. I saw once theaters I'm looking forward to revisiting it and seeing what we think now, and I wanna just thank every listener who is donated for this fall series. And hope you can join us for the night Shamlan. And if you can join us to be a patron this month, it's a really good month to do. So we just released Apocalypse Now for Veterans Day on Sunday, and it is one of my favorite war movies now, and then maybe forever patriot. It's daunting as of this recording. We haven't recorded that. And I do feel like we're going to go into the heart of darkness and like record breaking reporting time on that movie. It is certainly a classic that I'm looking forward to discussing. And I hope you can join us for that as well. And if you enjoy the show, please head died tunes and leave us a five star review. And if you didn't enjoy the show, please don't, but if you decide to it really does help spread the word about now playing and let other listeners know that they should check us out. So one second I'm having the time of my life. And the next thing I know my game is just done..

"She takes off the dress immediately and throws it away. We have a good six seven years of distance from in this movie came out and vanilla p as Disney Princess never became a thing. Yeah. I agree with that. Who knows we haven't seen the sequel? I do know that there are Disney princesses in it. And so time will tell how much they follow up on this. But I do feel like the ending brings the loop to close. Everyone gets exactly what they deserve. King candy slash turbo. Got destroyed. And when you die outside your game. He's gone. He won't be back into sequel. He's dead. And Ralph learns to love being thrown off the building because it gives them a great view of seeing vanilla game and his new friend and a reminder that he is appreciate it but dues this movie of reshi aided Justin Stewart's are you going to Reckitt, Justin. I think I gave my hand away pretty early here. This is a movie that I remember liking at the time. I watched it quite a few times with my daughter and. Yeah. Well, admit I probably have a bias because of what we talked about earlier towards this movie. So coming in. I wanted to kind of watch it with fresh eyes and see if there's just a little bit of hazing to style Gye had around this movie. But at the end of the day, I enjoyed it again for what it is. I think this is a good movie that can be put up there with other Pixar movies. Even though this is a Disney movie. I mean to me I'd watch this way before I watched cars or planes or any of that stuff because when I come into a movie that's three d animated with a cast of superstar actors behind it. What I'm looking for? Is a backdrop that is kind of magical and can pull me out of the real world and pay me along for story. I think Toy Story does that great. And it was one of the first it's probably gonna be the gold standard forever. And I think this movie does that it takes us two worlds where you can't necessarily go yet still has a tether to the real world. So watching this again, I really enjoyed it. There's a few things that I kind of stumbled across. I thought the race montage with the real world song like your foot on the pedal. Whatever that country song was pulled me out of it a little bit and unnecessary. But for the most part, I think it's well paced. I think it's gorgeous looking character design throughout this movie is really neat looking. And it's a movie that I think I'm gonna keep with me for my whole life, which makes me a little bit nervous that we're going to be going to the theater and revisiting this. Because to me, I don't know if they can go up from here. I think they only have room to go down into the diets Colva mentos fountain from here. So for me, it's a high recommend stew. You know, I don't have a lot of movies to draw on here. Again, my frame of reference. Unfortunately, for this film is Pixar. So I think I judge it probably a little too harshly because it is not as good as Toy Story. Any of those Toy Story movies? It does not have the emotional component that associate with the best Pixar movies. Now, I've seen some Pixar movies that were just kind of average like I would sorry. I would call incredible to kind of a flat one this one feels on par with that. But when animation movies touch me, I remember them. This is not going to be one of those. There are films that work for dads in their kids. And then there are films that just have dad jokes. And that's what this movie has a lot of it has a lot of references has a lot of corny jokes..

"I need more frosting points. Indeed. As soon as we wrap this up here. I think this part of the movie is fine. I'm not going with the chemistry between Ralph and vanilla. I'm wondering were they ever supposed to be lovers? That sounds weird. Because of course, the way it plays. I didn't get that. But because we have a subplot in which Felix is going to fall in love with Calhoun, the hardest general played by Jane Lynch who comes from hero's duty, the idea that those two are going to find some kind of chemistry again, I wondered about the relationship between old eight bit games and new fangled, computer games. And all those pixels were supposed to be happening in parallel as it turns out Ralph vanilla p it's more friends or mentor ship. They both understand each other because they both come from the same dump and so to speak, but I wondered if they were supposed to be more like Felix cow whom I never saw that in any of the. Stuff that was there. Maybe when it was Felix's main story looking for love, it might have been her instead of Calhoun, which would have made more sense. But the way they've drawn Ralph where he does look like a middle aged construction worker and the way they've drawn vanilla p where she looks like an infant and preschool. This is finally conceived visually we horrified if anything where to transpire here. Yeah. No, what we end up getting is characteristic for Ralph where he discovers it. It's less about his happiness and what he can do from self to make them. So feel better maybe helping somebody else out is what he's missing out on. But I just don't like their repartee. And this is a me thing if I was six body odor and fart brain jokes. Would make me giggle. I'm closer to sixty six and I'm just like this is not for me. Now, I'm not gonna argue with that again it is more enjoyable when someone in your on inches laughing. And when you're watching this alone. And no one is laughing you start to wonder does this play is this is good. I will say this when I want to Pixar movie, I usually find something for myself, even when this level of humor is going on. It is a deficit of this film that they haven't given us me. My demographic something while they engage in this kind of more infantile patter. Agreed. That's the thing where I'm going to really love a movie that is G rated aimed at kids is the ones that can appeal to all audiences. I felt like I was getting my fix. I mean, I enjoyed the first Shrek quite a bit. I enjoy several Pixar films. If you can give me something and the kids something like the old muppet movies used to I'm going to be very very happy here. All I can do is go if there was a little kid here. I'm sure they'd be loving it. And that's a step away from dragging your imaginary kids out of the mutant ninja sewer. But I don't see anything here that I feel does not meet its goals everything they're trying to do their accomplishing. But everything they're trying to do is not aimed like you say. A middle aged male sitting alone in his living room watching after the first half hours gone. There's nothing savvy. There's nothing hip, but it is working on its own terms. Exactly. You can't be everything to everybody at all times. And I think at this point the movie realizes that it's aiming to be a family movie rather than just a kids movie, and they're not going to be able to hit everybody the whole time and keep everybody engaged. Right..

"So we had some answers they got our medication and she's been healthy ever since. But at the time, this was a great movie for her. We could say, hey, you have a glitch because how do you tell a six year old? There's something going on in your brain that you can't control and some kids might think it's weird. If you do have a little bit of a fit in front of them. So this movie was nice piece to have her watch and have somebody to connect with on screen. So I can see Arnie's point of view where it's yeah. It's kind of a cheat and a video game. And that's a glitch e is I mean when you say somebody's glitches that means they're cheating. But for personally, it really hit a note at a time in my life when I need it. Oh, yeah. I think being different is the constant you'll see that in most any Disney movie of any era if someone is different and ostracized for that. This is makes it contemporary because there are a lot of kids. I mean, the diagnosing of kids on the auto. Mm spectrum is very high right now. So there are a lot of people that are now finding out that their kids for lack of a better term have glitches. And this is a movie that is going to tell them. Hey, that's okay. And you guys are completely right? And I want to say I'd never thought about that with this because we're in a video game world and her glitch. She's definitely ADHD. But I never took that as you know, what I'm saying. I took her glitch as her teleportation, she's like fading out of reality. Like back to the future with Michael J, FOX at the end. And so I didn't get that the way just now that you've said it, I think that's a great representation for children to have their because. Yeah, you don't get that in older media. Sometimes I look at a new cartoon. And I ask what does it bring that an older cartoon doesn't and that is very important in this world rules, though, it creates conundrums that our mind in inane lake because she's a. Glitch. She can't leave the game when everybody else can leave the game. This movie is so full of rules that these people had to come up with like, how do we get the characters to go together? They're going to go out the power cord. I mean, I could nitpick say power court doesn't transmit any data. But I'm not going to. Fantasy. Dallas falling through a looking glass isn't going to take her to wonderland either. It's going to take her to the ER against. You gotta go with it already. I don't know what to say find that child deep within you. And I think some of these problems are hand wave is you might make them out to be. I mean, go back to king candy disconnecting her from the main programming. That would explain why she can't leave the game. Everybody ken. They're still connected. She's outside of that this king candy. I didn't expect it. I'll just go ahead and say early on they tease the phrase, you talk about all the lingo when rules Arnie one of them is Ralph is gone. Turbo. And turbo. And what is turbo?.

"After that. I watched her stand up comedy, and she had this entire monologue from her vagina and from that point on. I've just never found her. I do like servile I've always found her funny. I caught onto her pretty early on. She was a bit character and mister show one of my favorite all time sketch comedy shows, and I've kind of followed her career and seeing her here was just kind of a bonus for me. This movie isn't going to live or die on her performance. I think she does fine playing kind of an off kilter character here. But you guys are saying that candy rush feels out of character to me. I think it's striking a balance for this movie up. Oh now, it's been an astrologer walk. It's been kind of aimed at boys and shooter video games. And all this stuff. This is where we find balance shirts all bright colored and girly feeling but it is a racing game at heart. And I think this is where it's going to bring in more people and not make it just a boy testosterone fueled movie. Yeah. I mean, it reminds me of candy land, which is a board game and not a video games. That's probably in development to you could have made that movie, and it would look a lot like that. I just think that if you were gonna make a movie about video games, it probably should always feel like you're in a video game. That's all I would argue. This does have a video game vibe. I do feel like it feels like a racing game that is desert themes like I've never seen that. But if there was one sugar Russia's it. It's Mario Kart meets candy land. Yeah. But this is where Ralph is going to find his equal. He's gonna find someone else that lives in a dump. Who's also labeled the villain and doesn't like it. And wants to prove that they can be hero. Even though everyone thinks that will be. A disaster. His soul mate is vanilla p. And you guys mentioned, Sarah Silverman. I don't have any opinion about her. I don't watch a lot of stand up. I don't know her. But it doesn't matter. Right. I mean, who's a fan of Craig t Nelson. But he was great as Mr. incredible. When you're dealing with voice actors, you can forget all of that baggage about whatever they do when they stand in front of a camera, and they can become the character. I think that Sarah Silverman is this lifting little rascal. That is the Ralph of her world, I would mostly agree, especially when you deal with Craig t Nelson because I watched coach a lot. But I forget that's him. And I even question do I bring up the actors, but I also think there's like Justin said the characters here, look like they're actors, and when I hear Jack mcbrayer, and I finally look this up that man's name is actually make a Breyer. I never believed. It. I always thought that was a stage. Peer to come up with the stage name it just feels like an act, but that squeaky voice, and he looks like fix. It Felix junior. Which is Felix Felix. No. But who is who's Jack mcbrayer, thirty rock? He was the page. I've never seen it. He was the breakout character. I dare say on thirty rock also was in forgetting Sarah Marshall, he's done a number of movie. But the thing is he plays one character. And you're seeing it here too. And I think the same thing with Sarah Silverman. I just hear her voice. I did not know that was Alan to dick in this movie. Which is who he's king candy. He's really putting on a voice. No. I mean, I don't know who these actors are. Anything I've ever seen Sears Silverman. Anything? I've never seen any of these people that you're referencing and saying they look just like them, really. 'cause I don't know where they work Allen to dick was mostly I think firefly, but he was also in Tucker and Dale versus evil. He was the droid in rogue one who was like the most popular character in rogue one. You guys are Reverend things I feel like I've missed like entirely fleets have boats. I'd missed I don't know. And to was Steve the pirate in dodgeball. I've just see this guy all over the place, including conventions..

"But we all are in this together. We're all in the same workforce. Basically because what nobody seems to realize in the high rise of fix. It Felix is without Ralph. They're all going to be homeless. They're going to be unplugged. They're going to be out with q-bert at his tint. That was the saddest thing was homeless q-bert. But here's my disappointment. Is we get the setup for all of this? We're introduced to this land. We get to see all these characters and how they interact that's the movie I want we leave all this behind when Ralph decides I need a metal to saw Felix get a medal for our thirtieth anniversary. I always left out. I'm going to go to a metal all of a sudden all the fun. I had of the toys in the toy box coming together and playing together is completely left behind as we spend the rest of the movie with the exception of a cameo or to focusing on games that didn't exist in two of which aren't even eight bit games. You've got Felix going into heroes duty, and that was kind of fun. I mean, I didn't think it was very call of duty. But it was like record route stepped into the set of starship troopers. See it sounds like the movie that you were hoping for and being ready player one. You know, we go to that world. And we stay in that world for the most part here. Here. We get thrown into a world and all these characters are part of that fabric. But I don't feel like we need to hang out here forever. I'm ready for a story. I'm ready to go into a world and settle in to the actual meat of this movie. The movie can't just be a bunch of references. It can't be just remembered Cuba. Remember should know? Be remember remember remember? Yeah. That would never work for show family guy. It could be done. I think it was called the emoji movie. But it's not what would dramatically work, and they are trying to work on a picture level. So they will eventually settle in the world that doesn't feel very video game at all. But I do think maybe at some point. They were the Goshi hitting the idea that Ralph is going to team up with a new generation video game character we see that when he's playing heroes duty his way out of his league. I thought there might be some kind of generational bias. And that it would be the old guy having to learn how to be like the young soldier and vice versa that the soldier that he takes the uniform from could've been his partner in crime and not glitch. You're halfway there. It was always going to be glitch. But it was going to be a road movie with Ralph and Felix coming together on this whole thing Felix was going to be there the entire time instead of playing catch up, and they realize we got too much Felix in this. They took it out. But the entire. Second act of this movie was Felix Ralph together, they never mentioned having a new character, which I think would have been a good dynamic you then have an even odder couple. I mean, as it is you have the couple you've got the big guy in the brood who with the little guy who's persnickety. I mean, they're going there. But it's not like, I just want references. I mean, admittedly, I'll say up front, I will have more fun. If I spent one hundred minutes and ten dollars in a bar Cade versus one hundred minutes and ten dollars for a ticket for this movie. Because of the generation I am, but I can't think of toys story, it's not like when they decided to go with their own characters Woody and buzz Mr. potato head and beau peep slinky dog went away. They were always part of the story. That's just not what they're doing here here when we do get into the candy land game. And really when Sarah Silverman comes in is where it does just become its own universe. And that's fine. It's just the commercials for this game played to my nostalgia. And you gave me nostalgia for thirty minutes. And then you took it away, and you replaced it with Sarah Silverman, who I used to really like, Sarah Silverman. I did I used to be pro Sarah Silverman. And everything the I'm Barra med Damon. Song was really funny, but something happened to her a little bit..

"That's why I was wondering what the timing of. That was I also think it was very trendy around this time. I mean, I guess it goes all the way back to hook. But it became very trendy to recast fairytale villains as the central figure on Broadway wicked became a big thing. And it was all about looking at the wicked witch of the west being more sympathetic than Dorothy and Shrek kind of had a lot to do. With thinking differently about fairy tales malefic, they're even working on a Cruella DeVille movie right now, I just think that's kind of where we're at. And so that is a fresh take. Well, what does it mean for the villain that they have to play a role that they don't want to that? They have to always be the bad guy when they have a glee hard of John C Reilly that gives you some dramatic weight to play with and to me. This just seems like the ultimate Disney story. The fact that the worked so hard to get to what I feel every Disney movie has was dumb founding to me because when I watched the movie for this review before doing any of the bonus features. So I've seen the movie twice. And I'm watching it. And I'm like here we go. It's the story of the outcast learning. Self acceptance and learning friends, you know, what bugs me about this movie. And it really bugs me Felix is too nice. I think Felix should really be a bit of a nemesis. I would picture him as basically the winkle vibe from the social network is who feel. Should be the fact that Felix is such a nice guy, and everybody's nice. The only bad person we have turns out to be the king of candy land that everybody's just going to get along in the end it just felt so wretchedly saccharin, and I would like to see I think Pixar would bring a more nuance to these Garrick tres instead of everybody's good. But we just need to kind of come to terms with who we are. Well, argue that picks are played the same formula. I would argue the nuance idea is to have no villains to say that. There are good people and bad people is unknown. St-? What they've always done is pit Woody and buzz together or whatever the monsters are together. I mean, you have odd ball couples and they work out their problems, but nobody is defined as bad. I think that they were definitely looking at buzz and Woody and thanking Ralph and Felix will be the movie, and then they. Ended up finding that the movie itself didn't leave them together until the end and add to that. You know, you say that the only bad guy turns out to be turbo. But he had that entire land of sugar rush. Brainwashed. And they all treated vanilla p as if she was a bad person. So you had to hold land of bad people, essentially. So I think having Felix be a little bit on the nasty side just to have a little bit of contention between him and Ralph would be kind of overdoing it by the time. They get to sugar Russia, and perhaps just the movie's called Reckitt Ralph vanilla p is a different issue that will get to have issues with that character and her plight overall. But when looking at Ralph whole thing, I'll say this. I like the entire first half hour this film a lot. I like seeing Ralph trying to make the people like him because again, it's so easy to make the rampage correlation, and what a better movie rampage would be if it was George the ape trying to make friends with. A buxom lady in the window. Instead of that movie. We reviewed earlier this year just love that concept of this huge destructive thing that's how I'm programmed..

"But I'm with you yarn for me with an animated kids movie. I need to be in on the conceit of what magic world we're gonna go into with Toy Story. You're right. I can imagine toys coming to life when I'm not there. And it's kind of actually what I fell off with Pixar is I could go along with bugs having a life. I could go along with monsters living in another world cars as whereas like, yeah. No. This isn't for me cars. You mean, doc Hollywood the animated movie exactly what I found. Interesting. Is you talked about all the writers? And it's only a fifteen minute feature at but I actually do recommended off this Blu Ray with a talk about the evolution of what the story was going to be. Can you believe the entire idea was them sitting around going? It's going to be fix. It Felix falls in love. The hero of the game was going to be fix it Felix. And they had Reckitt. Ralph was going to be this monkey monster. Looking thing that nobody liked and like after three or four drafts? This cadre of writers realized this is the guy the story needs to be about Felix. He has everything going for him. But what about this monster? We have that's off living in break. So the fact that they didn't have this in mind when they start it shows that yes, sometimes there can be a too many cooks situation. And I think that's the case a lot where a couple of people work on a script than a couple more people come in and rewrite the script rewrite the script here though. It was more like a writer's room, and they were really being pushed John Lasseter really kept pushing them and they'd go to them with the script. He'd like, you know, you guys have something here. Now, let's take it in this direction. Let's keep working at a working it and not rushing them into it. And they even had cut scenes that were Pennsylvania may. With the animators doing the voice over and their scenes, and I'm like where in the hell with this even a fit. There was a moment where Reckitt Ralph got so disparaged he went off. And he basically went to extreme Venus vacation remember that from dead or alive the beach day where play volleyball of these he and a surfer dude went to a different game where everything was cool, and you just partied, and you danced on the beach, and you just had fun all the time. And for some reason, he was not content there at left. How does that even fit into this movie will it fit for five drafts ago? Sure. And I can see that being one set dressing too, many already jumping from all these different worlds two different worlds. But you said something there that makes me kinda wonder when the casting became a thing. And when the character development became a thing because with the least our first four major characters here, I feel like the design of them takes a lot of the actual actors looks and personality animates them what I found is that the casting was actually done before the script. They knew who is going to be who because the animators were trying to mimic, John, Reilly's voice and against Sarah Silverman, doesn't have a lot going on. She came in and did all kinds of readings for just tests and things that they'd show. So they obviously knew what they were going for which makes me wonder if John Riley thought he was in for like a couple of. Weeks recording studio and the next thing. You know, you're the lead now, and they did something else though, what I found interesting I've seen so many making of animated films where I feel bad for the people because they're just sitting in a room doing their lines again. And again, they actually brought all these people into record their dialogue. They always record the dialogue before animation. So they can time it, right? But it led to a lot of ad-libbing things. So the actors themselves really brought a lot to their characters that wasn't on the page in a way, you don't normally see unless you're Robin Williams in Latin in a animated film, and I think that comes through. I mean, a lot of that synergy is there on the screen too..

"But the law move on the grid everything in that land is based on cubes things like that very subtle details that would hearken two eight bit without alienating ninety two percents of their audience, and that's apparent especially inside of the game of fix it Felix junior. Because when they're in there all the characters that live in the tower. If you watch them move there like. Almost dropping a frame rate. You know in the dance party scene. They're all doing very herky-jerky type of moves that seems like yeah. This is a nice between of an eight bit in a smooth animation. But just having that little bit up front. I don't think I could watch a movie like that. I feel like I'd be maybe getting ready to glitch out myself. It's not for everyone. But it would be for me. I would love to have seen it all done in that way. And again, all movies, like remake, everything in that style. I will watch it. Sure, there's YouTube channels dedicated to that there are and I get so lost in those where they take movies and do it all in eight bit style. There's Pulp Fiction relieve this is done. Yes. I have not a YouTube person. But I need to find us. Yeah. I've seen Halloween and kill Bill and Star Wars eight bit formats, it's great. I'll just spend hours doing that. But I don't know that I could go to a theater and watch it on a big screen for one hundred minutes. Not. Only that but they make the point when they pull out of the machine and then go back in these characters have three D life. So that makes sense that when it's after hours and kids go home, we see more of them than you would when you're playing that screen, but the best part of this entire movie is the first few seconds of this movie where we just get to see them reference, the Donkey Kong dance and tearing down a building rampage style. They're clearly referencing all the games that I played in loved as we get to see who this this movie is just chock full of Easter eggs little secrets and little aside jokes that are just sometimes you'd have to watch the movie three or four times a catch all of them. But yeah, you can tell right away that this movie is made by people who have an affinity for the history of games. And as somebody who has that I really do improve. She ate all that they're bringing in and all the licenses that they're working with. So that you can have characters from street fighter and pacman. And all the little things going on that they do. But I didn't get from the trailer that this was going to be Toy Story the video game version. But when I watched this the first time as soon as I see them all traveling subway through power chords into the power strip that is the terminal and hanging out together. And we're going to see what happens after the arcade closes. I'm just not sure that I believe that can seat because these characters don't go in the twin box together, I can believe Mr. potato head may have a thing for Barbie. Because I remember mixing and mashing my toys as a kid as much as I made love to seek Huber and pacman join forces. I just never could understand how they interrelate link this and wouldn't the people from hero's duty just like make fun of the old stodgy Grandpa's that are moving in eight bit. I wonder if during the writing of this movie has a lot of writers on all animated films. Do they always pass it around thirty people write something and five or ten people get credited, I wondered if that wasn't going to be the battle. I assumed that the buzz light year was our Ralph here he was the eight bit. And he was going to meet some new fangled thing who was more like Woody or something like that. And we would have that adventure. It isn't that? But that becomes subtext. It's not the story. They're here to tell. Right. And like you said store they get that out of the way right away. I mean, we have a meeting where we get all these disparate characters from disparate games over a span of many years. They're all recognizable. But they're not going to be in their own little styles. Blinky or whichever goes that was wasn't a bit glide climate not maybe Stewart..

"And so we didn't we missed it. We were too old for little berm aid. When it came out. I was in high school, and I still liked it when I saw it. Okay. This would. One of my favorite movies evade seen it at the right age. I could still recognize the quality. And I do think that you're right. That doesn't endear us to want to see our old friend Disney still doing well in this day and age because we just don't have those childhood static. I mean, they may try on they made black hole. I saw those black hole. Black Coldren black stallion was kind of a yawn fest. Tron was pretty black. Got years when I really was thinking about cartoons. I liked to get remember my older sisters who are quite a bit older than me. They're basically baby boomers to my gen-x. I remember being a kid, and they were all shocked that I hadn't seen so many of those Disney films as a kid because now Disney has their vault. They're going to re release it on video. But before then their vote was we're going to put it back in theaters lady, and the tramp was the one it was re released in theaters. And my sister was like you've never seen lady. I hadn't even heard of lady trae up. So when I was thinking about the movies, I liked you know, I'll give them this. An American tail was really await. That's not he broke off. Kind of cool with secretive nem, I thought that was a cool one. But even after that. Yeah. Five all and all dogs, go to heaven. I was I didn't see a lot of animated movies at an impressionable age. And consequently as I approached this movie in adulthood, I'm not that jazz. We're only really here because it's like a secret level of video games. Right. We're only doing this because we're kind of tying it in the same way that we did with ready player one into the idea that this is a movie that celebrates gain culture, even though it isn't a direct adaptation of any particular game. Although I imagined there probably is a wreck it Ralph game now. Yeah, they put one out for flash that was free to play at the time right now for wreck it. Ralph breaks the internet. I just looked today. There's a pacman for iphone that's free that has Reckitt Ralph characters that I haven't played it yet played it by next week. But I'm guessing record welcomes in messes with the game. Yeah. And I mean, it might be kinda cheap because every dizzy characters in there. But they have that game where you. Little action figure and you put it on the base. And now that characters playable in the world isn't Infinity, and it there you go. It didn't last even had all the Star Wars and marvel characters in it, and somehow they just could not compete with the sky Lynn. Well, even though this is based on a game the game in the movie is fix. It Felix junior which I happen to find an actual arcade machine of this at WalMart. It's a little twenty dollar andled thing, but you can play the levels of fix it Felix junior right here on your screen. So I was a little disappointed. How little there is to do there? There's no cut scenes, there's no intros no wedding scene. Where like Felix varies the character from? No, none of that fun stuff, man. Like, even in the movie, we'll see some cut scenes where he gets up there and ereck stuff, and they throw him off the side and all that stuff. None of that happens here. They throw them up the side. But you're always looking at the building. So there's none of this off to the side stuff, but Disney did make actual arcade machines of this that I think has the full experience and threw it in some of their little known arcades around the country for a while there. They also had one of the best bonus features on the Blu Ray for this. They have fake commercial. Nls for this like come down to the arcade..

"So I can see why somebody can become a fan of Disney much the same way where a fan of Star Wars warts, and all I can see that. I can also see the hatred for the rolling corporation that they are as they get bigger and eat up more of our beloved properties and stuff like that. And eat up many of our politicians, so they can keep that copyright law in their pocket. Totally and hey, I mean, I've had my run-ins with Disney I've gotten me letters directly from their lawyers before so maybe getting some. Blessing. As we know because my got taken. But I guess what I'm landing with that is going into a movie like this before I had seen it. Yeah. I would've called myself a Pixar guy, and let's see what you can do Disney. But I don't have big expectations of. That's the thing about Reckitt Ralph I really wanted to see this when it came out because damned as do a good job of being the Pixar rip off. Right. I mean, I thought this was a Pixar movie when I bought it. I bought this when it was a new digital release. And I'm like, we're gonna watch the new Pixar film. Wait, no, it's a Pixar wannabe film. It's Toy Story with pixels. Right. Pixar is part of Disney. I mean, you can't really separate them. Although I do agree. There is a different quality control. When you look at the early. John Lasseter directed Pixar efforts out to say this way. Anytime you hang around long enough. You're going to have absent flows. Disney has had great moments and low moments catch it at the right age, and you might really respond to some of it. I think that it's hallmark really was the captain Berg years. I think of the good Disney. Movies being actually the Princess movies anytime, they had a boy it was a problem anytime they had a girl it usually was a good one duty in the beast. Little mermaid those were the ones to check out. Okay. Maybe Aladdin, but you'd skip Hunchback whatever that Atlanta's crap was I sometimes like the music from that stuff. But I couldn't even stand. The Phil Collins song from Tarzan and I liked fill trained by that point. But I think is had ebbs and flows. And maybe it's time for someone else to prove that they can do what they can do. I had not seen record off. I thought I had. I had said, oh, yeah. I'm pretty sure I saw this one. And then I remembered I think I started it and like you aren't he was disappointed when I realized it wasn't Pixar. And I think it played out. But I was doing other things. I did not give it any real consideration. It changes it when you have kids around in your life. I also saw Zootopia not because I wanted to. But because I am an Oakland little girls that could sing every note of the Shaquir asong said, it's a. Great movie. And sometimes the magic is not the movie on the screen, but watching the audience enjoy it in your living room. I do think that there is something to be said about experiencing a family movie with the family that can't be replicated. When you're just watching it at home by yourself taking notes understand. I am never going to diss children's entertainment for children when I was young. I like Sesame Street on ice. I remember being at the convention center holding my countdown t on a stick. Remember, you know, that's. Like a sign Lega pennant at a ballgame. Only it was the count. And so it's on a leg Dowell. And I remember liking one hundred one mations the record album and the jungle book the record album when I was really young. It probably doesn't help anything that Disney had some crap years when we were growing up they were big to basically our parents generation because of yes, no, white and all of that. And then they became big again in the Katzenberg years. Let's underlined that when you and I were going to see movies. The last thing you were going to do the very last thing you were going to see was a new Disney animated film. They came out very rare. And when they did come out, they were black Caudron Oliver and company great mouse detective crap films that no one liked..

"And justin. Man. These conversations will be spoiler filled and may contain objectionable language. Favor. Mouth again. Listener discretion is advised. On. Today. We're discussing wreck it Ralph starring John C Reilly Sarah Silverman. Jack, mcbrayer, Jane Lynch Allen to Mindy Kaeling, Joel trueblue Ed O'Neill as bird eighty mclernon because it's really easy to get a big voice cast directed by rich Moore. This is your co host of now playing review at Arnie, and I've got to review it and Stewart without his children or the candy corn. And this is the podcast or with the most tragic backstory ever programmed Justin yet, you mention your children of the candy corn. I almost feel like I needed to adopt imaginary children because here we are. We added brief discussion of line. This isn't our first Disney film. But it feels like it. It's our first Disney original film. Big hero. Six was a Disney film. But it was a Disney film adapted from a marvel property as much as they'd like to try to make us. Forget that. Now, that's a TV show on the Disney channel does that what happened to it? So no sequel good it did well enough to continue as a TV series without TJ Miller, but not good enough to do another movie. How would they even title that? Would it be big hero seven big hero six? The battle continues. Brecca routh breaks the internet. You know? But sure here we are in full Disneyland. And you know, I do not find it a world of magic in a world of cheers. I find it a world of saccharin commercialism. I just need to put my bias out at the start of the show. Here's my problem with Disney as not that I hate them. And I realize I'm coming from a place of questionable stability as a person with Star Wars and marvel tattoos. But I find their stuff to be so shallow and so- aimed at kids that watching it. I went back and tried to watch three to one contact which I remember being the edgy adult version of Sesame Street when I was a kid, you know, you started as street, then you had your electric company, and if you're really cool three to one contact it does not hold up that show only worked when they had of the bloodhound gang on it. I only like spider made on electric company. But I just think that all their stuff compared to Pixar and even compared to what Warner is doing to be so milk toast. And I just do not understand grown people who just love Disney and without kids. Want to go on Disney cruises and all of that. I referred to them as Disney. What's I just don't get it? It's an awfully big tapestry. You're throwing over Disney by saying that you don't like their product they've been around so long ninety years at this point. You hate everything. Snow White listen, it's not for me anymore. I want back every watched Peter Pan when we did hook. It's not for me anymore. I remember liking Aladdin for the Robin Williams stuff. But there's nothing that I would give beyond a passing glance, and yeah, you said it'd been around. Yeah. I love that we start with a pixellated steamboat Willie here. But I can't think of a Disney product that is not Pixar that is not marvel. That is not Lucasfilm that is not touchstone Miramax. Or some of their other subsidiaries any Disney cartoon that comes out for their time in the fifties. There animation was cutting edge. But they're storytelling its entire success is based upon a bland taste that brings in the most people imaginable there, the McDonald's of movie makers, and I'll go through a drive through once in a while. But nobody's gonna save that a quarter Pounder is gourmet. I can agree with you on that. Aren't you like I can see both sides? And I'll add to that that what Disney is is a slice of America. It's a microcosm of what being American is. You know, it's kinda homogeneously a little bit Christian, but without being preachy, and it's mostly white. And now that they've gotten older yester- trying to do some diversity in some of their things. But put a lot of that aside as a dad I've had kids growing up and neither one of them ever. Really latched onto Disney. Rory was never a Disney Princess type akin. Tyler didn't get into all these movies that were out about that time..
